shirts with his mugshot on it
Washington Post, by Hunter Schwarz    Original Article

Rick Perry’s Super PAC is now selling $25 t-shirts with his mugshot on the front. “Wanted for securing the border and defeating Democrats,” the front of the shirt reads. On the back is the mugshot of Rosemary Lehmberg, the Travis County District Attorney that Perry asked to step down after she was arrested and accused of drunk driving in 2013. Perry’s two felony accounts are in connection with his request, and threats to pull funding if she refused.The shirts were available online, and at an event Perry is attending in New Hampshire. “I’ve got a great legal team put together to defend me. And hopefully it will be behind us quickly,” Perry said

Obama´s Post-Foley Fraud About Shariah
Breitbart Big Peace, by Frank J. Gaffney, Jr.    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 8/23/2014 12:02:11 AM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama found time between golf rounds Thursday to condemn the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State (also known as the Islamic State in the Levant or ISIL) and to assure the American people that he was all about protecting them against similar fates. (snip) For example, Mr. Obama declared: “No faith teaches people to massacre innocents.” Actually, the authoritative Islamic doctrine (or ideology) known as shariah explicitly calls for violent jihad to force infidels to submit to Islam and, as the Koran puts it, “to make them feel subdued.” The President sought to reinforce

Memphis, TN — In the summer heat, you probably are not wearing too many hats. But for a group of babies in the NICU at Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital, it is a necessity. A group of local Cigna employees decided to make hats for the babies. Clint Till´s baby girl is almost five pounds now, but she is still vulnerable. Covering all of the bases to keep her healthy is imperative. A tiny knit beanie cap goes a long way. (Snip) All 1,000 of the little hats were donated and woven by employees at Cigna, a global health insurance service company.

Marijuana vs, Scotch and a low IQ
American Spectator, by R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 8/22/2014 11:51:59 PM     Post Reply
Turning once again to what the sociologists call “coping mechanisms”: there is marijuana and then there is alcohol. They are increasingly the civilized options. Consider alcohol. Consider a suave scotch and soda. One does not sit down to a scotch and soda to get blitzed, unless one is a veritable drunk. One sits down and sips a scotch and soda while conversing with friends. Perhaps one reads a book. One enjoys the scotch for the taste. With scotch there are scores of different tastes. One drinks a single malt. One drinks a blend. The same is true with bourbon and

Memphis, TN – Two people are charged in a bizarre robbery attack at a Memphis TJ Maxx, where a security guard was threatened with AIDS. Christopher Talley and Latasha Brooks face several charges, including attempted first-degree murder. Police say a child was with them as they stole more than $1,200 worth of purses, but before getting away they left the security guard scared that he may have contracted AIDS. (Snip) Inside the office, police say cameras show Talley fighting with the guard and eventually wraps a wire around his neck. The woman who came into the store with Talley, Latasha Brooks,

Snyder adviser pays $16,000 in property

Lansing — Top gubernatorial adviser Rich Baird paid more than $16,000 in property taxes and interest to settle a problem with his dual Michigan and Illinois residences Friday as Democrats called for his firing. Clinton County Clerk Tina Ward said Baird came in Friday morning and paid $16,700.55 in additional property taxes for 2011, 2012 and 2013 — including $3,202.12 in interest — on his Bath Township home near Lansing. (Snip) Because of what a spokeswoman for Republican Gov. Rick Snyder described as an inadvertent error, both of Baird’s homes had been classified as his principal residences. In Michigan, homeowners get an exemption

Islamic State press officer who

The Islamic State press officer who taunted the Obama administration by saying the terrorist group would “raise the flag of Allah” in the White House is now dead. Abu Mosa was killed by Syrian forces loyal to dictator Bashar Assad, whose regime also is fighting against the Islamic State, which began as part of the anti-government militia there and is accordingly also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS. “An #ISIS leader and press officer both killed in Tabqa Airbase attack in #Syria,” the State Department said Thursday via one of its Twitter accounts, @ThinkAgain_DOS, which tells “truths about terrorism”

Obama considering airstrikes
in Syria against Islamic State
Washington Times, by Dave Boyer    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 8/22/2014 11:25:16 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is considering U.S. airstrikes in Syria against militants of the Islamic State, the White House said Friday. “We’re not going to be restricted by borders,” said Ben Rhodes, a national security adviser to the president. “We’re actively considering what’s going to be necessary to deal with that threat.” The bombing of targets in Syria would mark a significant expansion of Mr. Obama’s three-week-old air war against the Islamic State, which has been limited to targets of the militant group in northern Iraq. The U.S. has conducted nearly 100 airstrikes against the militants in Iraq since Aug. 8, and

What it looks like when a Chinese

The Pentagon on Friday blamed China for instigating a hair-raising incident in which a Chinese J-11B fighter jet buzzed a U.S. Navy P-8 Poseidon plane on Tuesday some 130 miles east of China’s Hainan Island. The atoll is southwest of Hong Kong in the South China Sea, and the incident occurred over international waters, said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary. As noted in this story by The Washington Post’s Craig Whitlock, the fighter jet brought one of its wingtips within 20 feet of the Poseidon, a Boeing 737 that has been adopted to perform reconnaissance and surveillance missions and hunt for enemy submarines.

THIS PAGE has for many years urged the local football team to change its name. The term “Redskins,” we wrote in 1992, “is really pretty offensive.” The team owner then, Jack Kent Cooke, disagreed, and the owner now, Daniel M. Snyder, disagrees, too. But the matter seems clearer to us now than ever, and while we wait for the National Football League to catch up with thoughtful opinion and common decency, we have decided that, except when it is essential for clarity or effect, we will no longer use the slur ourselves. That’s the standard we apply to all offensive

SpaceX rocket blows up over Texas

A new test rocket manufactured by Elon Musk’s upstart space company, SpaceX, blew itself up a few hundred feet over the Texas prairie after a malfunction was detected, the company said in a statement Friday evening. At its facility in McGregor, Tex., the company was testing a three-engine version of the F9R test vehicle, the successor to its re­usable Grasshopper rocket, which was designed to launch and then land on the same site. “During the flight, an anomaly was detected in the vehicle and the flight termination system automatically terminated the mission,” company spokesman John Taylor said in the statement.

A threat puts Obama’s
legacy in question

I’ve thought for some time that the Obama administration could look better in the rearview mirror of history than it does in the bumpy ride of the day to day. That may still turn out to be correct. Yet events of the past few months — specifically, the rise of the Islamic State and the accompanying specter of a renewed terror threat to the United States — have raised the alarming prospect of a legacy even more dismal than suggested by the current grim poll numbers. The rosier view of the historical prospects of the 44th president involves the early

Florida Judge Deals a Blow

Miami - In a blow to Florida Democrats, a state judge on Friday approved a slightly modified congressional map drawn by the Republican-dominated Legislature and decided that the 2014 election could proceed under the old map, which he had ruled unconstitutional. Two days after a sharply partisan hearing on the new map, Terry P. Lewis, a state judge in Leon County, concluded that the rejiggered boundaries for seven districts, while not perfect, “sufficiently” addressed his constitutional concerns. (Snip) He ruled that the Legislature is not required “to produce a map that the plaintiffs, or I, or anyone else might prefer.”

A ‘range of options’

The Obama administration is considering seeking congressional authorization for military action against the Islamic State under a revamped counter­terrorism strategy President Obama announced last year. A mandate from Congress could provide domestic legal justification for the unlimited use of force against the Sunni Muslim group across Iraq and Syria, a senior administration official said. Congress last formally authorized such action in 2001, against al-Qaeda and its associates, and 2002, against Iraq under Saddam Hussein. The new authorization is one of several alternatives under active internal discussion as the administration grapples with whether and how to try to militarily defeat the

Selma, AL - An Alabama teacher was suspended without pay after being accused of having sixth-grade students re-enact the deadly police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the Trayvon Martin killing in Florida. The Selma Times-Journal quoted Dallas County School Superintendent Don Willingham as saying the social studies teacher used poor judgment during a lesson on current events. School officials haven´t identified the teacher, who works at Brantley Elementary School. Administrators were alerted to the Ferguson re-enactment this week after the mother of a student in the class posted a complaint on

Probably we should all be past being shocked at what goes on in the public schools, but I confess that an email I got today from Devin Foley of Better Ed shocked me. It quoted descriptions, written by Twin Cities area high school teachers, of how their schools teach literature classes. (Snip) This is mis-education, worse than not attending school at all. Any child of normal intelligence would gain more from staying up late at night and reading books with a flashlight under the covers than from being subjected to such cant. For many students, such palpable bull* is likely

A 73-year-old Lilburn woman shot through a door as a burglar approached her bedroom and then she chased him out of her house, continuing to fire, according to a police report. Police found evidence that Hilda Douglas hit whoever was in her house earlier this month. Police found blood on the ground. According to a report on the incident obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Thursday, Douglas said someone rang her doorbell around 9:45 p.m. on Aug. 3. She looked out her bedroom window and spotted a truck parked nearby in the middle of the intersection of Falconhurst Drive and Hewatt Road. Douglas called

ISIS the Rock Band Mistaken

The name of the militant Islamic group ISIS is probably one of the most reviled names in the country at the moment. It is also the name of a defunct post-metal rock band with the same name that is getting "off color comments" on its Facebook page. The rockers may be hard to confuse with Islamic militants, but some have managed it. (Snip) Though the band is no longer together, the ex-members are being inundated with posts from individuals who believe they are associated with the Islamic terrorist group, which recently claimed responsibility for beheading American journalist James Foley.

Governor Deval Patrick and his wife, Diane, plan to join President Obama and the first lady for dinner on Martha’s Vineyard on Thursday, said a person familiar with Patrick’s schedule. The Patricks and the Obamas will likely have dinner at the vacation home on Blue Heron Farm in Chilmark where the president is staying, the person said. Longtime friends and fellow Chicagoans, Obama and Patrick routinely break bread during the First Family’s annual Vineyard vacations. And the Patricks have been regular guests at the White House during non-official visits, such as a party following Obama’s inauguration. The Patricks planned to

Eric Holder’s Soros-Sponsored

The vice president’s Boeing 757 delivered Eric Holder to St. Louis yesterday. In Ferguson, Holder announced that he was “a black man” and therefore had the power to heal Ferguson in ways that no other law enforcement official could. Yet his comments were sure to throw gasoline on fire burning hot with racial division. That shouldn’t shock anyone. It’s the community organizing model of running the Justice Department. What is shocking is who is fueling the Justice Department’s “training” of police departments around the country: radicals, communist-affiliated organizations, and George Soros.

The persistent whitewashing of Al Sharpton’s revolting past will always be a mystery to me. But if we’re to trust Politico’s reporting today, Sharpton has emerged as the go-to civil rights guru for the Obama administration. (Snip) Draw whatever conclusions you like from this development. But if the point of the piece is to detail the revival of a once-reviled public figure, offering a single purified paragraph detailing the events that first made the man famous seems a bit disingenuous. Perhaps a little more context is necessary for those who didn’t live through his violent circus. So let’s revisit. Three decades ago,

ALBANY – New York will get $800 million as part of a national $16 billion settlement with Bank of America over mortgage schemes, the latest windfall for the state´s coffers. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced Thursday that New York´s $800 million cut will include $300 million in cash and $500 million for consumer relief.

A $1,200 life-size statue of President Obama has been returned to a Wilkes-Barre woman after it was found on a park bench posed with a six pack of Twisted Teas. Tiffany Bruce, 30, told the Daily News Friday that the $1,200 statue was stolen off her porch early Sunday. It was recovered five days later after a police detective saw a picture posted on Facebook of the statue, lounging at a picnic table at Francis Walter Dam with his right arm outstretched, holding a bottle. The statue became beloved by the family after Bruce bought it last year

Rush Limbaugh said the mainstream media, as desperately as they tried, could not turn "gentle giant" Michael Brown, who was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson after Brown allegedly charged and beat him, into Rodney King because of today´s new media. Even though Rodney King resisted the arrest of officers who tried all they could to detain him without using force, the nation never got to see the full video. Instead, the mainstream media used an edited one-minute clip of officers brutally beating King after he charged them to fan the flames, trying to hammer home the notion

The $16.65 billion settlement by Bank of America over financial-crisis-era mortgage securities “highlights a pattern of the government extorting the banks,” Dick Kovacevich said on CNBC this week. (Italics mine.) Mr. Kovacevich is the former Wells Fargo chairman. I’ve known him for years. He ran a great bank. He kept Wells Fargo clean during the credit meltdown. Unusual for a big-bank CEO, he strongly supports free-market principles. Mr. Kovacevich went on to say, “It’s definitely politics. It has nothing to do with justice or restitution to the innocent victims. In fact, more of the money is going to the coffers

Ali Muhammad Brown was already a suspect in the murder of three Seattle men when he shot 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin eight times at a West Orange traffic light in his home state of New Jersey in June. Brown is described as a devout Muslim man who killed as part of what prosecutors allege was a “bloody crusade” against the United States. He sought revenge against America for what he said was the wonton killing of civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tevlin was allegedly Brown’s fourth victim. Brown’s victims, with the exception of Tevlin, had a similar background: they were young,
