    Well, it's been 96 hours of no news, (which for a news junkie is quite an astounding feat)! Let's see .... The thug Martin, through a useless and unnecessary waste of broadcast resources, was found to be legally shot by a law-abiding American. So what! The person named Sharpton, again, has proved to be an unendung insult of the title 'reverend', ever since the Tawana Brawley fiasco in NYC, in which he was found to be lying and deceitful, and made up the whole thing. The American citizen named Zimmerman has now been thrust into the very role played by...

    Justice is blind, except in the case of George Zimmerman. Gloria Gomez, FOX 13 @ggome13 This shirt getting a lot of attention outside courthouse. #verdictwatch #zimmermantrial There have been 1,000 shootings in Chicago so far this year, hundreds of them fatal and many involving innocent young children. Where are Obama, Holder, and Sharpton to decry this senseless violence? Oh, that's right: most of it's black-on-black violence, which doesn't help divide the country along racial lines... nor help advance their political agenda. My bad. Sorry I asked.

    This week, CNN was once again referring to George Zimmerman as a “WHITE Hispanic,” meaning apparently that the defendant in the Trayvon Martin shooting case was NOT one of the garden variety Hispanics known to be deserving of welfare, food stamps, social security and of course a pathway to citizenship. White Hispanics it seems are the devious, racial profiling sort who enjoy shooting blacks while claiming self-defense. Naturally, CNN wanted to make certain its shrinking, viewing audience understood the difference. (1) Upon concluding a thorough investigation of the February 26th, 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the Sanford police found...

    Take it from a guy who patrolled his building's roof  with a Sig 9mm in the Rodney King riot- no worries Back in 1992, I had lived in Venice Beach at the Santa Monica border for a couple years when the riot hit. They sent us all home from work early that day -after windows were shot out of a building down the street- and I sure did witness some fires and lawless zones on the way back to my apartment at the beach. Back there we heard some shots fired in the late afternoon-evening and a few fires...

    If I have a gun and someone is on top of me, repeatedly punching me in the face, and slamming my head against the concrete with the obvious intent to inflict serious bodily harm....I'm shooting that person EVERY SINGLE TIME. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar, in denial, or a political hack. Anytime politics and justice mix society loses. If we cannot judge someone based on the merits of his or her actions - decipher and prioritize evidence pertinent to the case – then we are incapable of being objective and therefore should recuse ourselves from any and all...

    The D.C. Clothesline ^ | 07/13/2013 | Dean Garrison
    There is a story behind the story in the Zimmerman case. We have all heard about the numerous tweets and posts that are promising vengeance if Zimmerman is acquitted, but you must look beyond that. The promised racial riots are simply a cover for something bigger in my opinion. The call for blacks to riot is simply a smoke screen for a hidden agenda. My best suggestion is to be prepared to defend your family because there are some who want these “riots” to extend outside the State of Florida and we must look at the source. Whenever the New...

      Those who would rule know one thing for certain: Win the battle of ideas and you win control of everything. In an open, democratic society such as ours, freedom of speech and what John Stuart Mill called "the marketplace of ideas" are huge benefits. They enable all of us, even the most marginalized, to make our case to the public, to be heard. They allow reason to be inserted into public debate as an essential part of the checks and balances of the democratic process. This is a healthy thing, vital for our republic. But for those who...

    Live by the sword, die by the sword. Salvatore Calautti, a hitman for the 'Ndrangheta or Calabrian Mafia, was gunned down inside his car in the parking lot of a banquet hall after leaving a bachelor party as reported by Adrian Humphreys for the National Post. In recent years the 'Ndrangheta has eclipsed Cosa Nostra or the Sicilian Mafia as Italy's most powerful crime group due to its obscene profits from the cocaine trade in Europe, and it has become entrenched in Australia, Canada and the United States with surprisingly little push back from law enforcement in those countries. Nicola...

    The political system in Bulgaria is similar to that in America involving shared power among dirty officials, corporate overlords and organized crime, and in recent days the Bulgarian citizens have taken to the streets in protest against the corrupt triumvirate as reported by Agence France-Presse: "up to 10,000 protesters have rallied in Sofia every evening since June 14, shouting 'Mafia!' and 'Resign!', angrily demanding that politicians sever their ties with oligarchs." Maybe someday the good people of the United States will demand the same of their supposed leaders.

    First published on FrontPage Magazine. By Enza Ferreri Over the last weekend there have been two more street attacks on soldiers in Britain, one of which was fatal. On Saturday, the Yorkshire town of Barnsley in northern England honored soldiers with parades and celebrations for its Armed Forces Day. One of the soldiers, who had returned from the Falkland Islands just hours before, was brutally assaulted at around midnight when he was getting home. He was jumped from behind, knocked unconscious and then repeatedly stamped and kicked in the head and face, and left with a concussion, injuries and...

    A petition for a writ of certiorari has been filed with the Supreme Court.  This is the infamous Woolard v. Sheridan case, where the Maryland District Court found the Maryland "may issue" law to be unconstitutional because it required a person to provide "good reason" for exercising their Constitutional right to bear arms outside of the home, on March 3rd, 2012. The District Court decision was reversed at the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. It is now up to the Supreme Court to decide to hear the case or not.  The court might think that the time is ripe, given...

    From: Ahmed Bedier [] Sent: Friday, July 12, 2013 11:24 AM Subject: Enough! "the radical Right-Wing’s War on Islam" "trying to get your religion banned" Look at the level of deception and and outright lies employed by Muslim Brotherhood groups in America. This demagoguery and fearmongering is how Islamic supremacists demonize efforts to protect freedom. Foreign law legislation "prohibits the violation of an individual's right under the Constitution of the State of Alaska or the United States Constitution.” This very simple and clear cut legislation should be the proverbial no brainer. And yet the fact that it being met by...

    More proof of why terror TV should be kept off the US airwaves. At least 22 staffers at the Al Jazeera network in Egypt quit in protest of the network's coverage of events in Egypt. Al Jazeera is a Qatari-owned company. It's based in Doha, Qatar. The journalists claim that the network's management made them take a pro-Muslim Brotherhood stance on air during the military coup last week in Cairo. Jihad murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has praised Al Jazeera, and several years ago one of its most prominent reporters was arrested on terror charges. Al Jazeera also has for years...

    In a backlash to the Boy Scouts of America’s (BSA) decision to embrace the presence of openly Gay scouts in its ranks, a new group which has not yet named itself, has announced it will begin to operate as an alternative to the BSA starting next January 1st. Using lofty phrases like “character development” the new group declared it will be generally modeled on Christian principles of chastity outside of marriages between one man and one woman. New Group (NG) will meet in Nashville in September to address what it says are the concerns of “tens of thousands” of individual...

    On Thursday, prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda contended that the only reason to find prosecution star witness Rachel Jeantel uncredible would be racism. “I had a dream that today a witness would be judged not on the color of her personality but the content of her testimony,” de la Rionda said. Jeantel infamously testified that she did not believe that use of the word “cracker” was racist in any way.
