    If you were ever curious and wanted to be a fly on the wall in a forum with some of the leaders of unorganized militia groups in these United States, then this is for you. There is an essay being circulated within militia circles, and I thought it was just too good not to let you peak into the Smokey Back room of what is being said, doubly so from the comments it has received. This comes from a militia leader, addressing everyone in open forum. I obtained permission to repost here. I did not edit it. It does contain...

    “Let’s say he [Biden] wins this November… that means decades will pass before we can see these documents,” Fitton stated in last week’s Weekly Update on Judicial Watch’s lawsuit for the ex-VP’s records. Judicial Watch is “in court right now in Delaware to find out the full truth about Biden’s record as US senator,” Fitton states. Judicial Watch first requested the documents through an April 30, 2020 FOIA request, but was met with resistance from the University of Delaware, where the ex-senator’s records are held. The state university stated that “it will not release the records until two years after...

    American Thinker ^ | July 8, 2020 | Gary Gindler
    Let's start with a series of rhetorical questions related to the upcoming presidential elections: – Does a broken storefront add votes to the Democrats? – Does a burning car add votes to the Democrats? – Does a killed or wounded policeman add votes to the Democrats? – Does a toppled statue add votes to the Democrats? – Does an "autonomous zone" add votes to the Democrats? – Does a demolished synagogue or a destroyed church add votes to the Democrats? Simple human logic suggests that the answers to all these questions are negative. Why do Democrats do all of this?...

    onths before they approved a prosecution of Michael Flynn, senior Justice Department officials expressed skepticism in internal notes about the FBI's continuing pursuit of the Trump national security adviser and the possibility of charging him with a crime, Just the News has learned. The skepticism about whether Flynn intended to lie during an FBI interview or posed a national security threat was expressed in handwritten notes that were turned over Tuesday to Flynn's defense team and the judge overseeing his case under a protective order, according to multiple sources. The documents were discovered recently by U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen, who...
  • New head of news at NBC-Universal openly promises to discriminate against Caucasians

    After just over a month in his new job as head of the newly formed NBC-Universal News Group, combining NBC News, MSNBC, CNBC, and all streaming operations, Cesar Conde is making news himself. In a video and memo to the approximately 3,000 employees he supervises, Conde announced a goal of 50% of employees being female and 50% "people of color," an expression commonly taken to mean non-Caucasians. Since Caucasians account for more than 76% of the United States population according to the Census Bureau, this amounts to a vow of racial discriminati After just over a month in his new...

    Activity within the Justice Department indicates U.S. Attorney John Durham is working to bring the first indictments as part of a criminal investigation into the Russia inquiry, according to investigative journalist John Solomon. Solomon, a controversial reporter who similarly reported criminal investigative activity related to Durham's efforts months ago, told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Tuesday that people are frustrated by the wait, asserting there already is "overwhelming evidence in the public record" that crimes were committed during the Russia investigation. Solomon, who is now the editor in chief of Just the News, faced criticism last year when his...

    The ruling greatly expands the kinds of employers that can cite religious or moral objections in declining to include birth control in their health care plans. WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday cleared the way for the Trump administration to give the nation's employers more leeway in refusing to provide free birth control for their workers under the Affordable Care Act. The ruling is a victory for the administration's plan to greatly expand the kinds of employers who can cite religious or moral objections in declining to include contraceptives in their health care plans. Up to 126,000 women...

    Our intern Alex covered this, but I’m sure you all know the drama that’s hit Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Yeah, he only posted some anti-Semitic crap on his Instagram account. Yes, it’s Louis Farrakhan, a vicious anti-Semite who isn’t all that bothered when people compare him to Adolf Hitler. That’s what he said in the clip that Jackson posted, which has now been deleted. Needless to say, that’s problematic, right? It’s wrong in so many ways, and the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles, Jeffrey Lurie, is Jewish. Jackson has apologized, but this notion that you’re not anti-Semitic, but...

    Roberts suffered lightheadedness and dehydration, fall was not related to earlier seizures, court says. The Supreme Court belatedly disclosed Tuesday night that Chief Justice John Roberts was hospitalized overnight last month after becoming dehydrated and falling while exercising. The 65-year-old justice required stitches and was released the morning following the June 21 incident, the court told The Washington Post in a statement. The fall at a Maryland country club was not related to two prior seizures the chief justice has suffered, the last in 2007, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg told the newspaper. “The Chief Justice was treated at a hospital...

    The Supreme Court upheld exemptions for the contraceptive mandate under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for entities with religious or moral objections in Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania. The order of nuns has faced nearly a decade of court battles after the Obama administration refused to allow exemptions to the mandate for religious entities. While President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) threatened the order with fines for non-compliance, the Little Sisters argue that the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act (RFRA) protects them from the far-reaching mandate. The Trump administration allowed exemptions to the provision and...

    The Supreme Court has ruled that two Catholic schools were within their rights to dismiss two teachers on the basis of classifying them as “ministers” rather than secular professionals. In a decision released Wednesday morning, the high court ruled 7-2 that two California-based Catholic schools can classify their teachers as ministers and not be held by the standards of state antidiscrimination laws. Justice Samuel Alito delivered the opinion of the court, being joined by Chief Justice John Roberts, and Justices Clarence Thomas, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh. Alito cited the 2012 Supreme Court decision Hosanna-Tabor v....

The Catholic Masses my husband and I attend are vastly better spaced than the grocery or liquor stores where he can shop, or even the authorized Chick-fil-A drive-through...

    The First Amendment protects the right of religious institutions “to decide for themselves, free from state interference, matters of church government as well as those of faith and doctrine.” Kedroff v. Saint Nicholas Cathedral of Russian Orthodox Church in North America, 344 U. S. 94, 116. Applying this principle, this Court held in HosannaTabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC, 565 U. S. 171, that the First Amendment barred a court from entertaining an employment discrimination claim brought by an elementary school teacher, Cheryl Perich, against the religious school where she taught.

    The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) requires covered employers to provide women with “preventive care and screenings” without “any cost sharing requirements,” and relies on Preventive Care Guidelines (Guidelines) “supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration” (HRSA) to determine what “preventive care and screenings” includes. 42 U. S. C. §300gg–13(a)(4). Those Guidelines mandate that health plans provide coverage for all Food and Drug Administration approved contraceptive methods. When the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Treasury (Departments) incorporated the Guidelines, they also gave HRSA the discretion to exempt religious employers, such as...

If convicted of the charges, the defendants--who share a Martinez address--face up to a year in the county jail.

    In today’s world you can burn down a church, tear down an abolitionist statue, or pour fake blood on the portrait of a founding father, and you’ll be praised. But don’t dare defend your family from a violent mob threatening to kill you, your wife, and your children—that would be wrong. Recently, in St. Louis, Missouri, a married couple successfully defended their home with a rifle and a pistol against a BLM mob allegedly endangering their lives. For this, the city’s lead prosecutor is attempting to press charges against them. The whole episode is perfectly symbolic of the chaos in...
