  • The Coming War On "White Men".Yet The Far Left Wont Blame White Women On Our Problems.

    05/11/2015 4:13:09 PM PDT · by Cruz_West_Paul2016 · 114 replies
    The far left will bring up their accusations that white men/and or jews are the cause of most of the worlds problems when they need to gin up a base as we get closer to election season. But what about "White Women", don't they share the same beliefs as "White Men"? White Women Marry White Men, so why can't the far left/liberals blame the women as well? Maybe it's a "Phony Scandal" to get the "Dumbfounded and Democrats" to vote Democrat in 2016 being all White Men are racists?

    A prominent attorney admits to taking flags from the graves of soldiers, a move that's sparked both positive reaction and calls for him to be arrested and disbarred. He's also received death threats and hate mail. The lawyer says his actions are meant to promote unity. A bag of small Confederate flags sits at Union Springs City Hall. They were removed from graves at an old Confederate cemetery downtown, behind the Red Door Theater, near the intersection of Highway 82 and North Prairie Street. Myron Penn pulled up the flags with his family on Mother's Day. Penn, a founding partner...

    Gotnews.com has independently identified the engineer at the center of the Amtrak crash that has killed at least seven. Brandon Bostian is the 32-year-old gay man who lawyered up after a deadly derailment in Philadelphia. The train was reportedly going twice the speed limit. ABC 6 previously reported that “Brandon Boshan,” not Brandon Bostian, was to blame for the deadly crash. (They have since taken down the link.) Bostian is a gay activist who previously worked at Target as a cashier before joining Amtrak, according to his LinkedIn.

  • Porn is fuelling a new, violent sexual ideology in our teens. It has to stop.

    LifeSiteNews ^ | 4/28/15 | Jonathon Van Maren
    April 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- I’ve been saying for quite some time that pornography is dangerous for more reasons than those that we typically discuss. Pornography is not dangerous just because it is spiritually dangerous. Pornography is not dangerous just because it is addictive, unhealthy, and unrealistic. Pornography is dangerous because it is becoming a new ideology of sex, in which women are objects to be abused and consumed and men are sexual aggressors, using the girls and women to physically extract as much so-called “pleasure” as possible.When I first spoke on this issue at the University of Ottawa with...

    Pamela Geller is a notorious right-wing demagogue who has made a career out of stoking the Islamaphobic fears of Archie Bunker America; running ads on mass transit condemning Muslims, publishing books you'll find on your grandparents' coffee table like Stop the Islamization of America, and promoting inflammatory publicity stunts like Sunday's "Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest" in Texas, where two gunmen were killed after opening fire on security. It's true that Geller is an insufferable troll who deserves to be forgotten forever under her haunted bridge of bigoted provocation, but unfortunately ISIS appears to have elevated her to the status of...

    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.

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- The Arkansas House of Representatives passed a "religious freedom" bill similar to the controversial measure in Indiana. The bill now heads to Gov. Asa Hutchinson's desk for signing into law. Hutchinson said that he would approve the measure if it made it to his office, CBS News affiliate KTVH in Little Rock reported. The Arkansas version of the bill -- HB 1228 -- would prevent state and local governments from infringement on someone's religious beliefs unless there were a "compelling" reason. Like the Indiana law, opponents say it would foster discrimination against the gay and lesbian...

    The debate over Senator Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for president revolves around conflicting information from several key authorities on the Natural Born Citizen clause. The question is whether a person is a "natural born citizen" (as intended by Section 1 Article 2 of the Constitution) by merely being born inside the U.S. (the rule of jus soli, or 'rule of the soil'), or by being born in the U.S. with one or both parents also being American citizens...or by being born anywhere in the world to one or more parents who are U.S. citizens (the rule of jus sanguinis,...

    I want to like Ted Cruz. He has all the right views from Obamacare to taxes to amnesty to Federal spending. He’s a gifted speaker, his speech yesterday was given without a teleprompter. He appeared genuine, frankly it appeared as though he had written the speech himself. The left hates Cruz, which of course makes him all the more likable. John McCain has called him a wacko bird, which again makes Cruz more likable. Anyone who annoys McCain must be good. Lost in the euphoria conservatives are having over Cruz is an objective look at whether Cruz will actually make...

    Raging Against The Rhetoric ^ | 03-18-2015 | Jackie Wellfonder
    Conservatives often find themselves at odds with the libertarian crowd. However, is that anger really warranted? As President Reagan once said, “If you analyze it, I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism.” True conservatives and libertarians, let’s not pretend there aren’t fakers on both side, all agree on the fundamentals: limited government, personal responsibility, and economic freedom. Neither group wants the government interfering in our daily lives and telling us what we can and cannot do. Now there may be slight disagreements on how that plays out in the policy arena, but we should not allow...

    Because I'm a Conservative, I believe in a strong separation of church and state. As Eliade wrote in The Sacred and the Profane, "the sacred always manifests itself as a reality of a wholly different order from 'natural' realities." We do a disservice to the truly sacred when we force it into Caesar's world. What is sacred to me is between myself and my Maker--and forcing that into the public square diminishes both of Us. Because I'm a Conservative, I care about the environment. Whether prompted by the Bible or by our own sense of morality (itself a part of...

The family attorney Chris Dolan says he will petition the California Secretary of State to rescind the death certificate. From the N.J.com story: Dolan provided NJ Advance Media with signed declarations from four doctors, including Charles J.

Melinda and Dani began their relationship as a lesbian couple and became domestic partners in 2010. A year later, Jonathan joined them as the third partner and the three married last summer in a ceremony that is not legally recognized. Now they’re sharing their story to raise awareness about polyamorous families and...

    Sen. Ted Cruz is getting close to announcing his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination. The Texan is spending almost as much time in Iowa and New Hampshire as he does on Fox News; he's hired a staff and collected a long list of fiercely conservative supporters.. There's at least one hitch: Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, in the Canadian province of Alberta. His mother was a U.S. citizen, born in Delaware; his father, a Cuban refugee working in Canada's oil fields. Thanks to his mother, Cruz was a U.S. citizen at birth. But that doesn't clear up a...

    Everyone wants to know whether Jeb Bush can survive his support for Common Core and comprehensive immigration reform in today's Republican Party. One deal-breaker that might surprise people, though: His opposition to gay marriage. NBC News and Marist College are out with a batch of new 2016 primary polls. And as you might expect, Common Core, immigration reform, belief in man-made climate change and support for raising taxes on the wealthy are among those with the potential to alienate lots of conservatives. But according to the polls, so does opposition to gay marriage--an issue on which Bush agrees with basically...

    The Blessed Virgin Mary was thoroughly Jewish. Different cultures and ethnicities have often portrayed her, Jesus, and others from the Bible as being from their group. Since Christianity for many centuries was based largely in Europe, these important characters of salvation history have often been depicted as white Europeans. Which is fine! But other cultures have also depicted them according to their own appearances. Here are 13 beautiful non-white European depictions of the Blessed Virgin Mary:

    To begin with, this election was, generally speaking, a rejection of the notion being advanced by many in the establishment wing of the Party that the Republicans needs to move to the Left on social issues like abortion and gay “marriage.” Earlier this year, GOP establishment leaders like Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan announced their plan to begin trying to recruit “Young Gun” candidates – socially liberal, and often homosexual, candidates to run under the Republican banner in an effort to “broaden the appeal” of the Party, especially to younger, socially liberal voters.

I understand that most Christians would be opposed to the act purely for religious reasons, but do those who oppose assisted suicide have any valid reasons without appealing to religious doctrine?

    The Supreme Court’s recent decision not to take up challenges to state amendments banning same-sex marriage has had two significant effects – it has expanded marriage to 30 states and reignited the political conversation around marriage equality in the 2014 midterms. Since 2011, I have worked with Project Right Side to help Republican leaders navigate a radically changing electorate on the freedom to marry. While public acceptance of marriage equality has steadily increased, this moment may ultimately be looked upon as the point where Republican opposition to marriage equality began to fall in earnest. According to a recent poll of...

    A very disturbing number of Freepers are openly advocating, on Free Republic threads, for the defeat of Senator Pat Roberts and other good Conservative Republicans. Greg Orman, in Kansas, is a pro abortion, anti gun, tax and spend Liberal Democrat who has given tens of thousands of dollars to Obama and Pelosi and the Democrat Party and Harry Reid. I am called an "idiot" for supporting Roberts. However, I think that those on Free Republic who support Harry Reid and Greg Orman should be ZOTTED, kicked off the site. I have had enough of there hate filled, vindictive, misguided trash.

    Who doesn’t love Bill O’Reilly? He’s witty, charming, sarcastic, and has just a little bit of that pompousness that makes the guy borderline adorable, in a non-homo kind of way. He also tells-it-like-it-is, and he’s pretty darn good at it. Unfortunately, these characteristics are not fully appreciated by State Department spokesperson Marie Barf Harf, who has been taking every opportunity she can to throw the conservative powerhouse under the bus for criticizing one of her female colleagues, a move she labeled “sexist.” Of course, it’s pretty dang hard to take any claim of “sexism” or “racism” serious from a liberal,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Department of Veterans Affairs says investigators have found no proof that delays in care caused any deaths at a VA hospital in Phoenix, deflating an explosive allegation that helped expose a troubled health care system in which veterans waited months for appointments while employees falsified records to cover up the delays. Revelations that as many as 40 veterans died while awaiting care at the Phoenix VA hospital rocked the agency last spring, bringing to light scheduling problems and allegations of misconduct at other hospitals as well. The scandal led to the resignation of former VA Secretary...
  • The United States is a moderate nation [ZOT!]

    Why do we keep electing extremists in the primaries? Obama is 100 percent liberal and McCain and Romney are 100 percent conservative. Most Americans are near 50/50. I'm hoping in 2016 moderates instead of extremists are nominated. People can't just be divided up into liberal and conservative. Most are in between. One person might be pro life but pro gay marriage. Another might be anti gun but anti tax. Very very very few are liberal or conservative on everything yet most elected officials are. Why?

    The National Rifle Association's top lawyer, who has been instrumental in shaping gun policy in the U.S., was once convicted of murdering a woman in Indiana.... Robert J. Dowlut, general counsel for the NRA, reportedly admitted to police in 1963 that he killed his girlfriend's mother. He was 17 years old at the time. Dowlut reportedly led police to the graveyard where he buried the gun and also copped to attempting to rob a pawnshop the same night as the killing. Bullets from the gun Dowlut unearthed at the graveyard matched those found at the site of Anna Marie Yocum's...

    We all are familiar with the political spectrum, that hypothetical horizontal line on which we find our ‘point’ – our personal political ideology. The principle is basic: left is liberal, right is conservative. But while the standard spectrum is still valid as a foundation, in reality it isn’t a flat line at all.
