One more reason to have nothing to do with JPMorgan Chase (aside from the fact they're a wretched bank, that should have failed five or six years ago).
From the Mirror of Justice: “Brendan Eich Was Only the Beginning.”
I've worked at Chase for the past 11 years. Yearly (sometimes skipping a year though) the bank will send out an Employee Survey to gauge how the employees feel about the bank and the management team they report up to. Every year that's all the questions ever related to: the Read more [...]
What could secretly dumping illegal immigrants lead to?
Imagine the first day of school in communities around the nation, as thousands and thousands of students show up, unexpected—many requiring specialized instruction since they don't speak English. Does your local district have extra money in the budget to pay for that? (Don't answer that, it was rhetorical—I doubt there's a single district anywhere in the nation that has money sitting around for this need, or anything else.)
Are you Read more [...]
The SS, the Gestapo, the Stasi, the Securitate, the KGB, and the DHS.
I challenge anyone to tell me the difference, except in length of existence.
Here is one piece of evidence among many, courtesy of Infowars.com: “Homeland Security Agents Raid Home to Seize Land Rover for Violation of EPA Regulation.”
In another example of how the Department of Homeland Security has expanded far outside the purview of its original function, six vehicles full of DHS agents were required to seize a Read more [...]
From the Christian Science Monitor, we read about the terrorist threat: “US is no safer after 13 years of war, a top Pentagon official says.”
The nation is no safer after 13 years of war, warns a top US military official who leads one of the nation’s largest intelligence organizations.
“We have a whole gang of new actors out there that are far more extreme than Al Qaeda,” says Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, which employs some 17,000 American intelligence Read more [...]

Just how bad is the Obama economy? Associated Press reports that, according to a study by the Urban Institute, over 35 percent of people in the United States have unpaid bills or debts that have been turned over to a collection agency.
These consumers fall behind on credit cards or hospital bills. Their mortgages, auto loans or student debt pile up, unpaid. Even past-due gym membership fees or cellphone contracts can end up with a collection agency, potentially hurting credit scores and job prospects, Read more [...]
We have written many times about “civil forfeiture” or “asset forfeiture” (see here, here, here, etc). It involves the police taking your property. The idea is that you should lose what you have gained by crime. But the law works so that you don’t have to be convicted. If the cops grab it you have to prove that you should get it back.
According to Radley Balko in the Washington Post, “Rand Paul introduces bill to reform civil asset forfeiture.”
The law, called the Fifth Amendment Read more [...]
A forced C-section? After learning that hospitals will grab children, or even try to grab an elderly man as well as his wife from home, I guess this shouldn’t surprise us. Jezebel.com reports on Jane Goodal:
A hospital in Florida is violating a woman's right to make sound medical decisions regarding herself and her unborn child after trying to force her to have a C-section she did not want to have or risk being reported to Child Protective Services.
Goodall was denied a temporary restraining Read more [...]
If Obama stops deportations by executive order, GOP leadership has assured the world that Congress will not do anything to stop him.
According to CNS News,
What will congressional Republicans do if President Obama takes executive action to defer deportation for millions more illegal aliens? "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace asked Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) that question on Sunday.
"[W]ill you do nothing, will you...cut off funding for the administration, will you consider impeaching the president?"
Scalise Read more [...]
Libya in Chaos was the headline in the Huffington Post back when the Administration was justifying the killing and overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi. The implication, repeated and emphasized many times to justify our backing of terrorists against him, was that the chaos was Gaddafi’s fault. So now he is long dead, and yet he is somehow still all-powerful in Libya. The country is in chaos and it is still his doing!
From CNS News: “Obama Adviser Appears to Blame Gaddafi for Mayhem in Libya.”
The Read more [...]
This is the real war on women, and on men too.
Once again we have a horrible story about a man claiming that he knows what it feels like to be a woman, that he is one, and that emasculation makes him one.
What kind of statement is that about women?—that all it takes are some hormone shots and some deep cuts and you are one?
Australian fashion model Andreja Pejic has never shied away from bending gender about as far as it can go. Previously mum about the extent of Read more [...]
The report blames the NSA for whistleblower fears, but even before the Snowden revelations the government committed acts that could only make people afraid to talk to the news media. The Department of Justice put taps on the phones of Associated Press journalists. They also breached the emails of James Rosen, the chief correspondent for Fox News, on the grounds that, by simply doing his First-Amendment-protected job, he was a possible criminal conspirator.
These were assaults on the media, especially Read more [...]
While Hollywood has used the government cocaine connection in fictional pieces, I don’t think it has ever taken a verified story and put it on the big screen. Since I have already covered one “conspiracy theory” today, I thought I might as well bring this trailer to your attention. This forthcoming movie is about the deceased journalist Gary Webb and the story that led to his book, Dark Alliance.
This will be a story that we conservatives don’t like, since it involves the Reagan Read more [...]
