    The Truth
    After the shameful and disgusting actions of the GOP Establishment in the Mississippi Republican U.S. Senate runoff, where they used Democrat tactics of screaming racism and promising big government to get the vote out to Democrat voters to cross over and help Thad Cochran win, is it time that conservatives realize that a GOPE can never be trusted? Time and time again, the ruling class aka Karl Rove, Boss Hogg Barbour, big donors, K Street lobbyists and RINO's continue to stab conservatives in the back and would rather risk losing an election to a Democrat than give up their power...

    Obviously Cochran is not going to resign. The governor should appoint McDaniel to his seat the GOP can be unified. Wicker is more open to amnesty than Cochran as well. Wicker only voted against the final cloture after he got hundreds of angry calls.

    House Speaker John Boehner could file a lawsuit against President Barack Obama in days, in an attempt to challenge the administration's heavy use of executive actions to further its agenda. Roll Call's Daniel Newhause reports Boehner told House Republicans during a closed-door meeting on Tuesday he could have an announcement in the coming days on whether he will mount the legal challenge. According to the report, he has been "consulting with legal scholars" ahead of his next move. Boehner's office confirmed the Roll Call story, but declined to comment on whether specific executive actions would be targeted. Any legal action...

    Do any lawyers or others among us have any idea whether the Tea Party groups that were targeted by the IRS can file a RICO action against the IRS? If so, what would it cost, what are the chances of prevailing, and what possible protections could one expect against the defendants and their friends in other parts of the syndicate? Could such an action be filed as well against other agencies of the federal syndicate involved in organized criminal actions like Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the VA, etc, etc, etc.

    HOUSTON (AP) — Mayors from the GOP-dominated states of Texas and Arizona are calling on cities to use nature to fight the impacts of climate change, even while Republican governors and lawmakers repeatedly question the science that shows human-caused pollution contributes to global warming. As conservative governors criticize the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's new rules designed to cut greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, the mayors — many from cities already struggling with climate-change effects — are taking steps and spending money to stem the damage. Attendees of the U.S. Conference of Mayors will vote Monday on a resolution that...

    I have received the American Community Survey and several post cards encouraging me to complete it. Having not received this before, I Googled it and found that it isn't sent out to the full populace like the Census is. It also appears to be a longer form of the Census selectively distributed in years other than Census years.There are a lot of questions that I don't feel much like answering and I stopped when asked about the market value of my home, my insurance costs, and some others. Apparently, if I don't return the survey, I am subject to a...

  • Presbyterians to divest as protest against Israel

    06/20/2014 6:04:58 PM PDT · by Java4Jay · 33 replies
    The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) on Friday became the most prominent religious group in the United States to endorse divestment as a protest against Israeli policies toward Palestinians, voting to sell church stock in three companies whose products Israel uses in the occupied territories. Last week, the pension board of the United Methodist Church, the largest mainline Protestant group in the U.S., revealed plans to sell its holdings worth about $110,000 in G4S, which provides security equipment and has contracts with Israel's prison system.

    The news: Business Insider compiled data by Clarity Campaign Labs and mapped the most conservative and most liberal cities in each state. Where do you fall on the list? The methodology: These results are pulled from an online tool that allows people to find the city in their state that aligns with their political beliefs. The results are pulled from Clarity's national models and SmartVAN Co-Op voter file, so they're pretty much as accurate as you're going to get and filtered right down to the zip code (having used similar tools before, I can tell you their system is capable...

    May you live in interesting times – Chinese curse As a student of WWII, I was always amazed at how people could watch what happened to Poland (and to a lesser degree, Austria) and allow Germany to become a serious threat to the world. I now understand, because the same scenario is unfolding today as I pen these words, and little is being done about it, nor will it be until world powers reach a “now or never” point regarding their perception of the risk as they did, eventually, after the fall of Poland. But it takes a leader, conspicuously...

    We know that Lois Lerner' s computer crashed at some time and per this morning it was just before "she learned of the rogue agents in Cincinnati." Since she was a fairly high level employee whose job required travel did she have a laptop? The way they describe their email system (not the way most systems work) not only would the desktop which crashed have a complete copy of all e-mails both incoming and outgoing so would the laptop. If she did have a laptop did it crash as well; did the agency give it to another employee at some...

    When the news trickled out a year ago that the head of the IRS union, Colleen ("fat and ugly") Kelley, met with President Obama the day before the agency began targeting the Tea Party, I finally saw the link. The story was picked up by many news sources on the right but did not develop any further. It's my opinion that this is the connection that the "lost" emails are trying to hide. And it's a big connection -- the White House, the POTUS, the union boss, and the government agency all collaborating, and conspiring, to thwart the actions of...
  • Is the House Leadership now more conservative?? Only slightly. Judge by the numbers.

    06/20/2014 6:21:19 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 6 replies
    Apparently the Speaker's votes are never rated. All four agencies rated Boehner as n/a. So we can only judge by the rest of the leadership. With Cantor, the republican leadership's overall average was 60%. With McCarthy as Majority Leader and Scalise as Whip, it will be 67%. Does anybody wonder why conservatism is CONTINUALLY thwarted?? Cantor - 66% (Average) - 52% (Heritage) - 68% (CFG) - 84% (ACU) - 59% (FreedomWorks) McCarthy - 54% (Average) - 42% (Heritage) - 53% (CFG) - 72% (ACU) - 50% (Freedomworks) McMorris-Hyphen - 60% (Average) - 48% (Heritage) - 59% (CFG) - 72% (ACU)...

    Redskin, Blackskin: Pigment is destiny A Councilman in the city of Washington DC utters the word "niggardly" quite correctly and without any racial connotations whatsoever rather it its proper meaning of "stingy." Black members of the Council, ignorant of the dictionary meaning of the word, take offense and demand the offender's resignation for outrageously using a racial epithet. The Councilman is forced off the board. It did not matter that his heart was pure and his tongue was free of racism, only the subjective reaction of a racial component of the city Council of Washington DC mattered. In this episode...
