    Just The News ^ | Updated: August 4, 2022 - 11:10pm | By John Solomon
    Akey senator says a top FBI official has been moved from his leadership perch in Washington after internal whistleblowers complained he was part of an effort to interfere in politically sensitive investigations, allegations Director Chris Wray now calls "deeply troubling." Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Just the News on Thursday that the FBI alerted him that Assistant Agent in Charge Timothy Thibault had been moved to another unspecified job. The transfer came after Grassley reported extensive information to the FBI and Justice Department inspector general that Thibault had expressed political bias in...

During the second quarter of the Mavericks game at American Airlines Center in Dallas, the girl got up to go to the bathroom, according to the release. Surveillance video provided to the attorney with Fortenberry Firm PLLC showed the girl...

    RUSH: I wonder what happened out there, folks. I wonder what happened. Trump has canceled — I’m sorry. Wrong word. Trump has postponed the health care plan until after the 2020 election. Happened last night. Trump postponed his plans to make Republicans into the party of great health care. Look. I understand this. Greetings. Great to have you. Rush Limbaugh, behind the Golden EIB Microphone. 800-282-2882, and email address, Let me tell you what I think happened. I haven’t spoken to anybody.

  • The Death of One Thousand Cuts

    08/13/2018 5:43:09 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | August 13, 2018 | Sheriff David Clarke (Ret)
    It was another bloody weekend in the city of Chicago recently with 12 dead and 80 others non-fatally shot. Sixteen of the shooting victims were children. No arrests were made due to a lack of community help. It seemed to be a yawner for most liberal media outlets like run of the mill street violence events have become. Sadly, these killings have become so common that they have become part of the landscape in the American ghetto. The reason is that unless the leftist media can check off something on their gun control agenda they don’t seem to have much...
  • Working to End Black Genocide

    Have you heard about the heroic efforts of the man who is working to save the lives of black children in our inner cities? Or how he destroyed a project by American elitists who used our tax dollars to kill children of indigent people in African countries? You must have heard of him. Of course, you have. The mass media relentlessly attack him because he threatens the false narrative they have been spewing for years — that America is an awful country. So they call him a racist, in hopes that you will hate him too. The radical feminists hate...
  • Stalking Horses

    11/15/2017 6:06:11 AM PST · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | November 15, 2017 | Walter E. Williams
    When hunting was the major source of food, hunters often used stalking horses as a means of sneaking up on their prey. They would synchronize their steps on the side of the horse away from their prey until they were close enough for a good shot. A stalking horse had a double benefit if the prey was an armed person. If the stalkers were discovered, it would be the horse that took the first shot. That's what blacks are to liberals and progressives in their efforts to transform America -- stalking horses. Let's look at it.I'll just list a few...
  • Black-on-Black Racism at Cornell

    A Rasmussen poll taken in 2013 asked American adults, "Are most white Americans racist?" "Are most Hispanic Americans racist?" and "Are most black Americans racist?" Of the three groups, the winner was blacks. Thirty-seven percent said most blacks were racist; 18 percent felt most Hispanics were racist, and 15 percent said most whites were racist. Thirty-eight percent of whites felt most blacks were racist. Even blacks agreed, with 31 percent saying most blacks were racist, while 24 percent of blacks thought most whites racist and 15 percent believed most Hispanics were racist. This brings us to the Cornell University's Black...
  • 'Uncle Tom' Is More Destructive Than the 'N-word'

    09/21/2017 7:50:11 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 15 replies ^ | September 21, 2017 | Larry Elder
    Warning: Graphic LanguageThe pejorative "Uncle Tom" causes more damage than does the word "n-----." The "N-word," when used by a white person as an epithet against a black person, is an insult, designed to convey to the recipient that he or she is a second-class citizen. It is designed to make one feel inferior. But it hasn't worked. My parents, as did the parents of my friends, said no one can make you feel inferior without your permission. Lesson learned. For decades, tests measuring self-esteem show that teenage black boys and girls test higher than do white boys and white...

    Breitbart - Big Hollywood ^ | 08/12/12 | Amelia Hamilton
    Jimmy Stewart is perhaps the best known of the celebrities who served, partially because he chose to serve while already a successful movie star. However, having come from a military family (both of his grandfathers had fought in the Civil War, and his father served in both the Spanish-American War and World War I), he saw it as his duty and was more than happy to serve. Stewart already held his private pilots’ license when he was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1940, but was rejected for being below the required weight of 148 pounds. Rather than going back...
  • SureFire Files False Advertising Lawsuit Against Advanced Armament Corp

    Santa Ana, CA – SureFire, LLC manufactures gun silencers (suppressors) and other related products for use with firearms. SureFire filed a Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1125(a), false advertising claim at the Central District of California (Santa Ana Division) against Advanced Armament Corp. (“AAC”). The lawsuit arises out of a comparative advertisement by AAC which features cutaway views of two side-by-side silencers. The advertisements have allegedly been published in magazines such as Combat Hanguns, Guns & Weapons for Law Enforcement, and Tactical Weapons. The complaint alleges that although the pictured product is identified as a “Competitor Brand Silencer,” it is immediately...

    Three orthodox Anglican groups, the American Anglican Council, the Anglican Communion Network, and Forward in Faith North America, have issued a joint statement on the recently-concluded meeting of the House of Bishops in New Orleans. The last seven days have been eventful ones for the worldwide Anglican Communion. The future of our 500–year fellowship has been focused on The Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops (HOB). The worldwide Anglican Communion has been looking for clarity, praying for unity, and searching for Christ and His will in our lives. Unfortunately, the HOB has failed the Communion; their continued ambiguity, questioning of basic...

    The American Anglican Council (AAC) commends The Episcopal Church (TEC) House of Bishops for clearly responding to the Anglican primates’ February 2007 Communiqué at its Camp Allen, Texas, meeting this week. However, the AAC is strongly opposed to the three “Mind of the House” resolutions adopted yesterday that expressly reject the pastoral scheme outlined by the primates’ recent Dar es Salaam Communiqué – a plan laid out to protect those in the church unable to accept the direct ministry of their Episcopal bishop or the presiding bishop due to theological differences. The bishops did not address the key issues on...

    Father Jake Stops the World ^ | 8/03/2006 | Teresa Mathes
    My concern, since the early 90s, has been the rise of a new breed within the Church that does not fit into our former classifications. They are neither High nor Low, conservative nor liberal. A parallel could be made between this new group and the emergence of what is sometimes called the "neo-conservatives" in the political realm. It is a stretch to think of the administration of George Bush as "conservative," in light of the astronomical deficit we currently face and his Wilsonian idealism regarding the exportation of democracy. This new breed is certainly not "conservative" in the same way...

    Sony is moving to make its music management software compatible with Apple Computer's audio file format in the latest evidence of Apple's dominance in digital music. The behemoth Japanese conglomerate, which once controlled the portable music market, announced Tuesday that the company's data compression technology would be compatible with a number of rival formats, including Apple's format of choice, AAC. In the past, Sony has fiercely held to its own Atrac system. By switching to a technology that supports AAC, Sony appears to be acknowledging Apple's dominance in the digital music playing market, say analysts. "That's a big change for...

Mark Andrus as bishop on the third ballot. Andrus currently serves as Suffragan Bishop of Alabama. This election has garnered international attention in light of the fact that three partnered homosexuals were nominated, two by the nominating committee and one by petition, demonstrating defiance of the mind of the Anglican Communion on human sexuality. None of the seven candidates has indicated intentions to declare and implement a moratorium on same-sex blessings or pledged...

    The 40 or so worshippers who broke away from St. John's Episcopal to form their own church, weren't the first Americans to trade modern Episcopal practice for 'historic' Anglican beliefs. The topic caught media attention in 2003 when the Episcopal Church ordained Gene Robinson, an openly gay bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire. Some Episcopalians vowed to leave the church. But Madeline Whitaker - a 15-year member of St. John's Episcopal in Glyndon who left to join the breakaway Church of the Resurrection - said more complex theological issues are fueling the growing popularity of orthodox Anglican beliefs. "One...

    Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat are the four “Instruments of Anglican Unity”? The Anglican Communion understands itself to be a family formed by mutual responsibility and interdependence chiefly enabled through four instruments of unity. These instruments are modeled on the early Church’s “conciliar structure” – a model upheld by both Scripture and tradition in which the Church met in councils to consider and resolve theological and doctrinal issues. Today, the four instruments of unity in the Anglican Communion are also responsible for articulating and upholding the mind of the Church on matters of doctrine and theology, and they include the:Archbishop of Canterbury...

Over the 28 days I will be here, I will be dealing with the disease of alcoholism-which, for years, I have thought of as a failure of will or discipline on my part, rather than a disease over which my particular body simply has no control, except...
