84-Year-Old Retired General Subjected to Police Brutality?

police brutality He said in response to the police brutality, “It’s the first time in my life I’m ashamed to be an American.” Here is the video report of a local media outlet on what happened: The line at the end really gets to me—that if military police under Retired Army General William J. Livsey's command back in the day had behaved as the police behaved in his house, he would have court-martialed them. According to Mint Press News: This all started when a delivery driver said his debit Read more [...] Continue reading →

Only 4 Out of 17 GOP Candidates Pledge to Fight for Real Marriage?

dead-gop-elephant It isn’t quite that bad since some GOP candidates have a blanket policy of not signing pledges, but many have no desire to defend marriage. Less than eight years ago Barack Hussein Obama was still pretending to oppose same-sex “marriage” in order to win the Presidency. Now, as this story shows us, many Republican candidates are refusing to oppose the fake marriage. Has public opinion really shifted so decisively? As I’ve written before there is reason to doubt that the culture has changed Read more [...] Continue reading →

A Gay, Black 'Victim' Shoots Two Straight, White Co-Workers Live on News

vesterFlanagan A homosexual, African-American former TV journalist who had been fired from his job two years ago took his revenge on two white co-workers Wednesday, live on the news. The two victims, WDBJ-TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward, were reporting live on a feature story from a local waterfront building complex when suddenly multiple shots were fired, striking Parker as she fled and knocking over Ward, whose camera continued to record before the feed was returned to the television studio, Read more [...] Continue reading →

What First Amendment? Virginia State Police Forced BBC Journalists to Delete Video

bill-of-rights BBC journalists at the scene of shooting suspect's car crash were threatened if they did not delete video as ordered. So I assume you have all heard that a homosexual African American shot and murdered two straight whites on live TV. This was, of course, not a hate crime and never will be labeled as one. This story from PRI caught my eye and makes me wonder why we even claim to have a First Amendment: “Virginia police order BBC journalists to delete footage of suspected shooter's crash.” BBC Read more [...] Continue reading →

Making the War on ISIS Look Good

pentagon The military’s Central Command has been writing reports on the war on ISIS that include positive conclusions that aren’t justified by the information. Jason Ditz reports for Antiwar.com, “Centcom Skewed ISIS War Intel To Be More Upbeat.” The perennial positivity of all public Pentagon assessments on the war against ISIS, despite major, glaring losses on the ground, has been a matter of no small controversy for awhile, and has also successfully kept the elected officials who are on the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Planned Parenthood Provides the Perfect Cover for Rape and Child Abuse

TwelveDaysPlannedParenthood A recent investigation of Planned Parenthood in Alabama says they failed to report the rape of a minor to whom they aborted two children in four months. All the way back in 2013, Phil Hodges wrote about the Obama Administration’s desire to see the “morning after pill” sold over the counter: But what effect is this going to have on child molesters and rapists? Remember that case recently of a 31-year-old man who raped a 12-year-old girl, took her to a Planned Parenthood facility and forced Read more [...] Continue reading →

Has Barack Obama’s ISIS Started the Destruction of Europe?

Crashing Europe Graphic Is Islamic refugee immigration bringing about the eventual destruction of Europe as we know it? If you have a problem with my calling them “Barack Obama’s ISIS,” you need to do some basic research. We have addressed the issue many times on this blog (here is one of my own brief contributions that is probably the most recent). Up until today, I had thought of President Obama’s actions in the Middle East (and President Bush’s before him) as a disaster for the peoples of the Middle East, Read more [...] Continue reading →

San Diego Plunders a Woman $25 Grand for Using AirBnB to Provide Lodging for Consumers

airbnb The city says she needed a permit for using AirBnB—which would have cost her $5,000 to $10,000 and taken up to a year to get. When Liberals get outraged because the Supreme Court allegedly said that corporations are people, think about their strategy. Liberals rarely (until they reach a later stage) want to admit that they want to plunder people, or punish them. And claiming to be “against” a corporation allows them to manufacture this diversion. Corporations are always these abstractions Read more [...] Continue reading →

The First Legal, Armed Police Drones Are Here!

drone Thanks to drone industry lobbyists, we now have armed police drones in one of our states. How long before other legislatures are purchased and pressured? It is a small start. The first armed police drones only have taser weapons. But it is still a start. Where will it end? The most disturbing element in this is the role of technology businesses in taking sides in the legislative process. Much of the Daily Beast article is taken up with the debate in the legislature about whether to require Read more [...] Continue reading →

Government Bureaucrats Can’t Predict Our Economic Future

lies people statistics Whether it is managing healthcare or alternative energy, our government bureaucrats repeatedly fail to see our economic future. As we all know, our stock market is finally starting to shred the delusions that have built it up over the past months and years. One major domino that started the cascade was China’s experience of the same thing. When China started to show major signs of shredding, Jack Lew was asked about it. Jack Lew is President Barack Obama’s Secretary of the Treasury. I’d Read more [...] Continue reading →

Republicans and Unions Fight Obamacare Tax

Corporate_taxes The tax on “Cadillac” plans is being opposed by both Republicans and unions. According to the Washington Times, “Obamacare ‘Cadillac tax’ to hit 1 in 4 employers that offer health care benefits.” Obamacare’s “Cadillac tax” will hit one in four employers that offer health care benefits, a leading industry analyst says in a report being released Tuesday, socking companies with a massive levy that Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill say is unfair to those who have negotiated Read more [...] Continue reading →

CBO Predicts 2018 Will Mean Unsustainable Debt

us over cliff The CBO predicts 2018 will end a good period in American finance, but he is assuming the economy continues to recover. I expect the mainstream media, to the extent they cover the story, will spin the Congressional Budget Office report as a “glass half full” story. But the CBO predicts 2018 will be when the glass starts emptying. I think the Washington Times headline is accurate: “CBO report forecasts unsustainable debt in long term.” The economy is sluggish but growing and inflation remains Read more [...] Continue reading →
