Charles Barkley Refuses the Ferguson Story

charles barkley Charles Barkley defended the grand jury while condemning rioters. The sports star refuses to feel pressured to conform to racial (racist?) expectations. He has his own opinions. He recently shared them on the Philadelphia radio station 97.5 The Fanatic. Here is the transcript via USA Today: “[Those expletives] who are looting, those aren’t real black people, those are scumbags. Real black people, they’re not out there looting. I just watched a great story on CNN where bunch of folks Read more [...]

Police Don’t Appreciate Volunteers Protecting Ferguson

FergusonCops Police not protecting Ferguson order volunteers to stop protecting Ferguson One of the real police victories in this story is that, when a father used a baseball bat to rescue his daughter from a pimp, the police cooperated and arrested the pimp. There was nothing in the story about the police finding some reason to charge the father for “taking the law into his own hands.” In Ferguson, however, the police (or someone in charge of the police; I’m not going to assume that every one Read more [...]

Backing Out of the HIV Story?

plague A few days ago I pointed out this odd HIV story that claimed a health crisis was brewing. People with HIV are not taking the drugs that claim to slow the disease and stop it from spreading. What was odd about this story was that it definitively stated that only a minority of those who were infected with HIV were doing anything to make it less contagious, but it didn’t make any claims that, as a result of this irresponsible behavior, the spread of HIV had increased. So I had to suggest: “Perhaps Read more [...]

Thoughts on Ferguson and Race

Ferguson protest Jesus Here I stand: a Latin American analyzing the Ferguson scene. What follows is a less-than-eloquent analysis, but an analysis nevertheless. I have little to offer, except to say that I have been racially profiled on several occasions. At one time, when my hair was longer, I was stopped consistently at the airport. I have been asked if my country of origin is Morocco, Peru, or Guatemala, among others. I am actually from Brazil. My country has not been in a war in over 100 years. Lula, our former Read more [...]

Government Mandated Mind-Reading

thought police A government that outlaws thoughts is claiming to be a mind-reading government. Can you read my mind? Well the federal government is now saying that it can read my mind – and your mind. And it is ready to punish you for your thoughts. Does that sound like Nazi Germany to you? Me too. Recently, Representatives John Conyers of Michigan and Mark Kirk of Illinois introduced H. R. 1913 dealing with what they are calling “HATE CRIMES”. Now I was trained as an attorney at a law school Read more [...]

Is John McCain Right about White House Pentagon Decisions?

Secretary of Defense - Charles Timothy "Chuck" Hagel Are Pentagon decisions being made “within a small group in the White House”? There is no love lost between John McCain and me. I don’t often agree with him. In fact, I often strongly disagree with him—both on domestic policy and especially on foreign policy. But that doesn’t mean he is always wrong or always inaccurate in his perceptions. He may be absurd in claiming that we can support “rebels” against Bashar al Assad in Syria without funding al Qaeda-related terrorists, but he Read more [...]

The Nazis among Us Keep Killing Minorities and Disabled

Nazi Germany Nazis claim to be Liberals because they are soooooo compassionate. Seriously: What do you call a movement that ardently defends homicide with a special emphasis on the disabled and on racial minorities? Does this name change if the members of the movement insist that society is better off with the disabled being killed and that even minorities are better off if they are kept more “minor” by the slaughter of more of their children? The Lifenews site just ran a story about a prominent Read more [...]

AP: U.S. Working with Syrian Terrorists

08242012islamic_rage They hid it under a misleading headline, but the Associated Press admits the U.S. is sponsoring Jihadists and Syrian terrorists. My thanks go to "We Are Change" for catching this: The Associated Press headline sounds innocuous: “Rebels push forward in southern Syria.” Syrian rebels backed by the United States are making their biggest gains yet south of the capital Damascus, capturing a string of towns from government forces and aiming to carve out a swath of territory leading to the Read more [...]

Mainstream Economist: Retirement is History

social security_cards 2 You probably knew already that retirement was over, but it is worth noting that a liberal economist is admitting it. Of course, she doesn’t hold herself or the institution where she once worked (the Federal Reserve system) in any way responsible for the mess. From the Boston Globe: “A warning on realities of work, retirement.” Alicia Munnell has never been one to sugarcoat her opinions. As a top economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston in 1991, she shook up the New England Read more [...]

Pastor Voddie Baucham Speaks on Ferguson

Voddie Baucham 2 Pastor Voddie Baucham, Pastor of Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, Texas, took to Fox News to attempt a Christian answer to the ongoing situation in Ferguson, Missouri. Back in August, unarmed african-american teenager Michael Brown was fatally shot by a white police officer – inciting months of tense race relations, violent riots, and widespread looting. National media attention has intensified the situation as many perceive the event to be an example of racial profiling and excessive Read more [...]

Shock & Dismay for American Abortionists

Keep abortion legal_02 It seems American abortionists were expecting a lot more “progress” by now. As LifeSite news reports: Abortionist Curtis Boyd, who has been committing abortions since before they were legalized in 1973, was featured Friday by UK-based publication The Guardian in a piece on American abortionists. The tone of the piece is one of shock and dismay that America has grown more pro-life, rather than more accepting of the tenets of Roe v. Wade, since 1973. To drive this point home, the Read more [...]

Treasury Madness: Go into Record Debt to Repay Debt

RECORD REVENUE-NOV 25-2014-CHART It is insanity to repay debt with more debt, but that is how the U.S. government works. This is what the mainstream media has been pushing for years. So no one should be surprised at what the Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, has done.  As I wrote last year: “So according to Reuters, economists, and CEOs, The salvation of the economy lies in increased spending and increased debt. This is the insane philosophy that lies behind the current attack on the Tea Party. This is what lies behind the Read more [...]
