  • Gaystapo Takes No Prisoners: GoFundMe Torpedoes Sweet Cakes

    Charting Course ^ | 4/25/15 | Steve Berman
    The LGBT-Gestapo adapts rather quickly.  After Memories Pizza raised $842,432 in just a few days, and Arlene’s Flowers raised over $173 thousand on GoFundMe, the Gaystapo couldn’t let Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of the now-shuttered Sweet Cakes by Melissa, use that fundraising platform. A GoFundMe account was established for the Kleins, and raised over $6,000, until the website took it down. The website GoFundMe said in a statement Saturday that it took down the page because the campaign violated the policy against raising money “in defense of formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts.” “The...

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | April 25, 2015 | John Nolte
    Our bubbled mainstream media got a serious crash-course in reality this week with the revelations that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio don’t hate gays, and that Bruce Jenner, who is in the process of transitioning into a woman, remains a Christian Republican. During a two-hour interview Friday night, Jenner said to a noticeably puzzled Diane Sawyer, “I’ve always been more on the conservative side.” Still in shock, Sawyer then asked if he’s a Republican. Jenner responded in the affirmative, ”Yeah. Is that a bad thing? I believe in the Constitution.” Jenner also said he was a Christian and not a...

    Gun Watch ^ | 24 April, 2015 | Dean Weingarten
    Over the past decade, there have been two reports of open carriers being attacked.   In one case, the attacker tried to grab the openly carried pistol; in the other case, the reason for the attack is unknown.  Both attacks failed.  There have been two other reports of open carriers having their firearm stolen.  One of those cases was in an area where an openly carried firearm was required to be unloaded. It is more likely for concealed carriers to be attacked, because the attackers do not know that they are armed.   The vast majority of criminals do not want...

    If you thought it would end with small town pizza parlors in Indiana and Oregon cake bakers, you would be wrong. The enforcement of militant liberal orthodoxy, having claimed a few scalps from moderate-income Christian business owners, now sets its sights even higher. Our Editor Erick said over two years ago that “You Will Be Made To Care” and most people thought he was speaking just to evangelical Christians. Who would have guessed such a short time ago that the leftist thought police had much bigger plans in store. Everyone, and I mean everyone, will be brought to heel. The...

But what is not being mentioned is its origins. It was not invented by Latin American Catholics. It was developed by the KGB. The man who is now the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, secretly worked for the KGB under the code name “Mikhailov” and spent four decades promoting liberation theology, which we at the top of the Eastern European intelligence community nicknamed Christianized Marxism."

    Ancient society morality was based on concentric circles, with the free male of that tribe at the center, females and children farther out, foreign and slaves at the bottom. Christianity held that all were equally valid before God, even if not necessarily the same in real life. You may have a master in the world, but your soul was equally valid. That was revolutionary at the time. Liberalism has brought back the old concentric rings of value. The woman is worth more than a man, hired first, her opinion more valid from her experience. The non-Caucasian is worth more; that...

She’s running for president again, and this time her campaign says they plan to raise and spend $2.5 billion. That’s 2.5 billion dollars. Billion, with a B. It’s the end of the world as we know it. Who the hell has ever heard of such a thing, spending two and a half billion dollars on one candidate’s presidential campaign? Whatever the racket raised, democrats will eventually have to come to grips with the fact that...

    The City of Pearland, TX completely ignored its own code of ordinances in order to assess a fine against me over an animal I never owned. I proved my case in open court, but my evidence was ignored. I e-mailed Ted Cruz because he purports to be a champion of citizens' rights and principles. I asked for his help, but he couldn't even trouble himself to respond let alone offer any assistance. I guess he only supports individuals who can help fill his campaign coffers. Yessir, your tax dollars at work. Makes me proud to be a Texas conservative voter.

    How can Ted Cruz be "too conservative" for America when an independent watchdog named Barack Hussein Obama the "most liberal" politician in Washington during his tenure as Senator? Contrary to progressive propaganda, America wasn't founded on Marxist or Islamic principles. This fabled nation was forged upon the timeless premise that man's natural rights are derived from God rather than the vain benevolence of any leader or the criminally usurped power of statism. Liberty, opportunity, God, faith, capitalism, hard work, self-reliance, accountability, and duty are hardly meaningless taglines used to lather up a Right Wing electorate into a frothing display of...

According to the Los Angeles Times, the cast members quit the production after learning the true circumstances surrounding Brown’s death. Playwright and producer Phelim McAleer told Breitbart News that the script is based strictly on grand jury testimony, with “nothing added.

    “Taxes for thee, but not for me” is the liberal mantra.  The celebrity-worshipping elite Left exalts the “middle-class” while not deigning to join it, and certainly doesn’t lower itself to such plebeian pursuits as paying taxes. While Melissa Harris-Perry laments the plight of inner-city black women (and beclowns herself by asking Eric Holder to “quack for us”), she also accumulates quite a lot of loot along the way.  In 2012, she tweeted pictures of her latest renovation project in New Orleans—not her first round of “This Old House”--she and hubby James Perry renovated another fixer-upper in 2009.

Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It contains within it two key concepts: the concept of ‘needs’, in particular the essential needs of the world’s poor, to which overriding priority should be given; and the idea of...

Since Republican nominee Mitt Romney crashed in 2012 on the shoals of his "self-deportation" strategy of harassing immigrants until they left the country, many Republican leaders and operatives have concluded that Romney's immigration policies were sure losers in a national election. How else to explain Romney's showing among American Latino voters — the worst since President Ford?...

    Nullification. It’s a word being kicked around a lot these days — from radio talk show hosts, to TV journalists, to the halls of legislature. I guess the more recent idea came from the 1976 film “Network,” starring Faye Dunaway, William Holden, Robert Duvall and others. In the film, fictionalized TV news anchor Howard Beale became so enraged that he publicly challenged his viewers to shout out of their windows, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this any more!” Nullification is sorta’ like that. As noted previously in these pages, our elected officials are passing literally...

Conservatives that never warmed to George W. Bush’s “compassionate conservatism” longed for the real thing. The conservative blogosphere asked if we didn’t elect the wrong Bush. Now we are approaching 2016...

    If Islam is not the curriculum topic in social studies, English, or history, it is the indoctrination into the green religion of environmentalism, of Gaia, or Mother Earth, masqueraded as climate change. America used to be the country of freedom where people dreamed of immigrating to if only they could get a passport, a visa, enough money to fly or sail across the ocean, if only the border guards would not arrest them in the U.S. if they had no papers, if only the military guards in their own countries would not shoot them on sight. Cubans have risked their...

    When I was interviewing Ed Peruta, he sent me this notice of the event in Southern California where he will be giving a talk this Saturday.  It is in Ramona, California.  Ramona is located a bit North of San Diego.  Here is a map of the location: This website gives directions from a number of locations.   Here is a link to the website of the organization sponsoring the event.  When I talked to Ed, he struck me as a dynamic and motivational speaker.   I do not know if I will be able to attend, as I am traveling and...

  • Top 5 ways US treatment of African-Americans resembles Apartheid South Africa

    04/21/2015 7:56:11 PM PDT · by MinorityRepublican · 25 replies
    From 1949 though the early 1990s, South Africa was ruled by an Afrikaner Apartheid regime that made race the basis for law and politics, and which systematically excluded black Africans from their civil and national rights, empowering white Afrikaners alone. The social statistics produced by that regime, however, are not so different from those produced by ordinary every day legal and social practices in today’s United States. Impunity for white policemen who kill Blacks is one commonality between the two societies.

    The 2016 presidential race is shaping up as an epic struggle between generations. On one side are the ageing baby boomers who came of age in the 1960s and whose generation now is heading toward retirement - Democrat Hillary Clinton, who would be 69 on Election Day and the second oldest president ever, and Republican Jeb Bush, who would turn 64 soon after becoming president. On the other is a wave of younger faces who came of age in the 1980s, including Republicans Marco Rubio, 43; Ted Cruz, 44; Scott Walker, 47; Chris Christie and Rand Paul, each 52. It’s...

    Coaches can't worry about being liked, by players or their parents. If you are worried about being liked, coaching is probably not the best profession to pursue. Even worse, if you are making promises in the pursuit of being liked, it will come back to haunt you.

    Not far from the burned-out ruins of the city of Ferguson, a bunch of lily-white activist teachers at the Parkway School District in the St. Louis suburbs have seen fit to pose for a series of pictures in their classrooms, staring into the camera holding preprinted signs which say “BLACK LIVES MATTER” in bold lettering. Scroll down to see the pictures. Along with the pictures of teachers holding the signs are pictures of black students posing with related racial-grievance oriented propaganda signs, hung with string from around their necks, and plastered all over a bulletin board behind one black student...

    In Oklahoma, Judge Thad Balkman ruled in favor of second amendment supporters when he issued a tempory restraining order to prevent the City of Norman from enforcing a ban on the carry of weapons during the Norman Music Festival.   The city argued that it was not banning weapons; only that the private organization that it had given control of city streets and sidewalks was banning arms.   From newsok.com: Bateman and Assistant City Attorney Rick Knighton argued that the festival operators essentially lease a three- or four-block area from the city for the special event. By doing so, they...

    Climate Change: A self-created political fiasco Earth Day was declared in 1970 and for the past 45 years we have all been living in the Environmental Insane Asylum, being told over and over again to believe things that are the equivalent of Green hallucinations. Now the entire month of April has been declared Earth Month, but in truth not a day goes by when we are not assailed with the bold-faced lies that comprise environmentalism. Around the globe, the worst part of this is that we are being victimized by people we are told to respect from the President of...

    Washington Post ^ | April 21, 2015 | Jennifer Rubin
    The Post reports that Walker now says, “In terms of legal immigration, how we need to approach that going forward is saying … the next president and the next Congress need to make decisions about a legal immigration system that’s based on, first and foremost, protecting American workers and American wages.” He went on to cite favorably Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) on the subject. The notion that legal immigration hurts the economy and native workers has been rebutted repeatedly and is widely disparaged by a host of pro-growth conservatives and scholars.....AshLee Strong, spokeswoman for Walker’s Our American Revival PAC, tells...

    Barack Hussein Obama is NOT registered to vote in Washington, D.C., but is registered in Chicago, IL. Barry Soetoro, who is Barack after he was adopted by Indonesian Lolo Soetoro (1965) was at one time registered to vote in the nation’s capitol, but “is no longer registered to vote in D.C.!” (1) An anonymous web researcher known as Dr. Eowyn is claiming that just one week after he published a post on July 20, 2013 about someone named Barry Soetoro being a registered voter in D.C., the name of Barry Soetoro was removed from the DC voter rolls. “Barry Soetoro...
