    Not only has President Obama officially represented himself as "My Brother's Keeper," in his latest program to somehow encourage young Black and Hispanic Men to become more respectable in society, the President, Homeland Security, and Eric Holder have also become more protective of illegal aliens, many of whom, are  nothing more than drug mules supplying a gigantic network of heroin users in the United States. The President and Democrats have taken extraordianary (illegal) measures to add illegals to the Dem voter rolls, despite the fact that they have helped heroin use to become the latest national drug epidemic. Regardless...

    The progressive left, headed by President Obama, loves to talk about being on the right side of history. Go back five years and these people talked about making history, now they’re talking about being on the right side of it. Putin is on the wrong side of history when it comes to Ukraine, the right side of history isn’t entirely clear. Syria’s use of chemical weapons was the wrong side of history, opposing it the right side. Supporting homosexual marriage and other special rights for homosexuals is the right side of history, opposing them the wrong. When it comes to...

  • MH370 Mystery: Remembering Malaysia’s Role In 9/11, And In Other Islamic Terror Plots

    In January, 2000, Malaysia’s capital was where key members of Al Qaeda held their “Kuala Lumpur summit” to plan the bombing of the USS Cole that October, as well as the later attacks of 9/11/01. In light of this, and other facts pointing to Kuala Lumpur playing host to a hotbed of Islamic terrorists over the years, the baffling mystery of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 provokes renewed scrutiny of Kuala Lumpur in fostering international terrorism to date. In this context, Malaysia’s Islamic government and prevailing majority Mohammedan culture comes across as either grossly incompetent, or even somewhat...

    Sweden: Parliament official orders bare-breasted painting removed … for Muslims STOCKHOLM, Sweden, – A painting of a bare-breasted woman has been removed from the Swedish Riksdag’s guest dining room on orders from the legislature’s deputy speaker. Deputy Speaker Susanne Eberstein of the Social Democrat party ordered the painting, “Juno” by baroque artist G.E. Schroder, to be removed from the guest dining room, where it had hung since 1983, TheLocal.se reported Thursday. “We routinely change paintings from time to time,” a Riksdag representative said in response to an inquiry from news agency TT. A parliamentary source who asked to remain anonymous...
  • Putin's Kiss on Netflix ... must watch

    03/16/2014 8:20:07 AM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 7 replies
    I posted this as Putin's Kiss yesterday, and it only got one hit. Maybe if I post its title as a movie on Netflix that might stir more interest, because like the Lives of Others, this movie/documentary is well worth watching. The parallels between Russian society and ours is not only instructive but frightening, and I wish our leftist youth could see themselves as Masha in Putin's Kiss. Want to see what America will become before the end of the Obama regime? Want to see where it is happening right now, and from which we are just days away? Want...

    It's that time of the week again where we look among all the deserving idiots and pick our Jerk of the Week. This week was packed with the usual suspects of President Obama, John Kerry, Michael Bloomberg, and many others. I had almost decided to pick Lebron James and other celebrities shilling for ObamaCare (which they'll never have to use being wealthy themselves), but in the final tally, the winner was Bob Costas. For his continued anti-Second Amendment rants and utter hypocrisy, he is our Jerk of the Week. The far left leanings of Bob Costas became painfully apparent in...
  • 19 Signs That The U.S. Consumer Is Tapped Out: Years of declining incomes and rising debts

    You can't get blood out of a rock. Traditionally the United States has had a consumer-driven economy, but now years of declining incomes and rising debts are really starting to catch up with us. In order to have an economy that is dependent on consumer spending, you need to have a large middle class. Unfortunately, the U.S. middle class is steadily shrinking, and unless that trend is reversed we are going to see massive economic changes in this country. For example, in poor neighborhoods all over America we are seeing bank branches, car dealerships and retail stores close down at...
  • Help me one more time: Obama prods young on ObamaCare

    The Hill ^ | March 15, 2014 | Peter Sullivan
    The White House is hoping young people will come to President Obama’s aid one more time over ObamaCare, just as they did when they supported him strongly in both his presidential election victories. The administration is engaged in an all-out push to increase young people’s enrollment in ObamaCare with just two weeks left before the deadline to acquire insurance. Young people have signed up at a significantly lower rate than the administration had hoped, raising fears among Affordable Care Act advocates. The fewer young and healthy people sign up, the higher premiums are likely to rise for older people for...
  • Texas court rules that police may introduce illegally gathered evidence at trial

    Texas prosecutors are applauding a decision by the State Court of Criminal Appeals which provides police officers a second chance to present evidence which has been gathered contrary to Texas law and the 4th Amendment. The ruling literally offers law enforcement a “do-over;” an opportunity to secure a search warrant AFTER a home has been illegally searched and AFTER evidence has been improperly obtained. In 2010, police in Parker County, Texas received a call from a confidential informant (CI) who claimed that Fred Wehrenberg and a number of associates “were fixin’” to cook meth. Hours after the call–at 12:30 A.M...

    Members of Congress who have been briefed by intelligence officials say they are baffled by the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. The Boeing 777 has been missing since March 7, when it lost contact with air traffic controllers about an hour into its flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing. Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak said Saturday that communications systems on the missing flight were deliberately disabled by someone on the plane and the last known signal came more than seven hours after takeoff. Lawmakers said they sought out information from multiple federal agencies about the missing plane, but...

  • Who has the standing to call Putin's actions in Ukraine - nekulturny?

    March 15, 2014
    At the end of WWII the Russian army raped and pillaged as they pushed the Nazis back into Germany [that barbarian nature that they have - yet are so sensitive about]. One thing that would cause them to pause [halt their knee-jerk barbarism] was being called nekulturny. No matter how uncouth and barbaric a Russian is by nature, they are very sensitive to being called on it. Someone with authority [which leaves out Obama and Kerry] needs to paint Putin as being nekulturny - UNCULTURED! Kerry did exactly this when he said Putin was acting so 19th Century, not like...
  • UT: Legislature says: Open Carry is not Disorderly Conduct

    Gun Watch ^ | 15 March, 2014 | Dean Weingarten
    There has been an ongoing debate in the Utah legislature about the open carry of firearms.   Some people have been arrested for openly carrying holstered firearms.  Open carry is legal in Utah.  The charge has been, as it was in Wisconsin five years ago, "Disorderly Conduct". Disorderly conduct tends to be a catchall phrase that is used to crack down on conduct that is not illegal, but that the police disapprove of.  Being arrested can be a significant punishment.   The Wisconsin AG eventually ruled that openly carrying a firearm is *not* disorderly conduct by itself.   Police departments paid out...

    Full title - "Threats to CT Police Escalate Following CT Cop’s Gun Confiscation Comments – Cops Ask Pro-Gun Veteran to Help Cool Things Down" There have been reports that Navy veteran John Cinque has been receiving threats because of his stance on the issue of Connecticut's gun registration law. Apparently those reports are due to a misreading of a piece by the New Haven Register in which Cinque said, "There have been threats made — that I found out about today." Freedom Outpost reached out to John Cinque, who spoke with us this morning and confirmed that the threats he...

    In one week from today it will be one year since I decided to become the mother of a child with Down syndrome. The Diagnosis I almost threw up as I answered the phone. Yes. Our baby had trisomy 21. Down syndrome? I asked out loud. My husband, Ryan, let out a noise I have never heard him make before or since –- something between a gasp and a bark...The weeks that followed were an endless cycle of sleepless nights and uneaten food. Frantic Internet research. Phone calls to Down syndrome clinics from conference rooms at work. Hysterical phone calls...

    Secession is a word we have not heard much about for a while. Past secession movements have centered on grievances over tolls and taxes which are not items people have been willing to fight out to the bitter end. Those movements failed because local and state governments eventually addressed the would-be secessionists’ demands. Today there are several secession movements brewing in various diverse parts of the country, but each one centers on a much more important issue: The personal freedoms and liberties of We The People. By all reckoning We The People are deadly serious about wanting to break away...
