Can Rahm Emanuel’s Illegal
Thug Tactics Be Stopped?

FrontPage Magazine, by Michael Volpe

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/31/2013 7:09:28 AM

A number of pro-2nd Amendment groups have condemned a series of letters written by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel encouraging both Bank of America and TD Bank not to honor credit lines with gun manufacturers, but so far, Emanuel is not facing any legal action for his interference in a private contract. Last week, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel sent a letter from his office to two banks, Bank of America and TD Bank, asking each to suspend doing business with gun manufacturers in the hope that this will pressure these companies into helping gun legislation pass.

Both banks should consider suspending doing business in Chicago.

Hey Rahm have you thought about having some of your nearby thugs shifting their fire from Chicago´s citizens to Gun manufactures?

And the voters of this once great country have handed the White House and executive branch of the US government to the Chicago Mafia--twice.

And I didn´t even get my "free" Obama cell phone.

Politicians have all kinds of ideas for the bankruptcy of Bank of America. Write off their home mortgages, don´t lend to gun manufacturers, government forced loans to those who have no income. Yee HAA, democrats are wizards of finance and ruin.

Of course Rahm is the guy who also didn´t want Chick-fil-A to be able to do business in Chicago. Unbelievable. He gets to pick and choose what businesses will be allowed to operate there. What a thug.

I can tell you one thing for certain: if either of these banks comply with Emmauels´ "suggestions" there will be a major pull-out of customers throughout the U.S. What a bunch of thugs these Chicago pols are (and I include our President and his illegal strikes against the Constitution).

Nope because no one will say anything, they will not arrest him just allow him to do it, he´s a friend of Obama and the news media might say something bad about them and not Rahm.

It has to be a court case. Only a court can stop him, and only another court can make him comply with the first court, and only a third court can .... there´s no other way and we can only hope there are some brave judges out there.

By seeking to ban just about all modern firearms produced and sold in the USA, the liberal Democrats are affectively attempting to put most of the conservative oriented US small arms and relating industries out of business, as those industries could not survive bidding on the diminishing number of military small arms contracts. If the liberal Democrats are successful they will also be eliminating the tens of thousands of well paying American jobs that now exist in those industries.

Notice that the liberal Democrats have nothing to say about the Hollywood movie, and the video game industries that produce an unending stream of very violent movies, and addictive and very violent video games, that give the unsound minds of young people with mental disorders who grow up in places like peaceful rural Connecticut towns, ideas as they set out on their own personal suicide missions, that by committing criminally insane mass murders they can draw worldwide attention to themselves. That´s because the movie and video game industries are big time liberal Democrat financial supporters.

The war on standards
comes to college debate
Powerline, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 4/19/2014 8:55:55 AM     Post Reply
Paul has been writing about the war on standards in various aspects of our society, generally as a means of advancing the interests of minorities (or purporting to advance them, anyway). Now it appears that the decline of standards–indeed, the abolition of any standards at all–has come to the world of college debate. The Atlantic reports: These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national

   

 



 
What Really Happened at the Bay of Pigs

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But

Federal Land as a Percentage
of Total State Land Area

The government has no business owning (or administering) all of this land. I am willing to concede federal courthouses and even the national parks to the feds, (even though some of the parks were created as a result of brutal land grabs. Shenandoah National Park which I look out at as I write this is an example.) but why is practically all of the far West run by the Federal Government? Here’s another thing I’ll concede. The feds get a few hundred God forsaken square miles in the northern Nevada desert to do nuclear testing and to dump nuclear fuel. Beyond that? People should own this land.

As we all know, racism, homophobia and anti-Semitism are very bad and should be condemned. Not only do I condemn all of those things, I´d encourage you to share this quiz to all of your liberal friends so they can wag their fingers right in the faces of the awful people who said all of these terrible things. 1) Who said, "We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it."

Capitalism and the Dalai Lama
New York Times, by Arthur Brooks    Original Article

What can Washington, D.C., learn from a Buddhist monk? In early 2013, I traveled with two colleagues to Dharamsala, India, to meet with the Dalai Lama. (Snip) That same duality was on display in February when the Dalai Lama joined atwo-day summit at my institution, the American Enterprise Institute. At first, his visit caused confusion. Some people couldn’t imagine why he would visit us; as Vanity Fair asked in a headline, “Why Was the Dalai Lama Hanging Out with the Right-Wing American Enterprise Institute?” There was no dissonance, though, because the Dalai Lama’s teaching defies freighted ideological labels.

Here´s How Long That Teen Would Have

to Make It Unsafe to Drink

Oh, Portland. A teenager urinated into one of the city’s drinking water reservoirs the other day. That’s gross, sure, and aggravating—what a brat! But in one of the most spectacularly stupid decisions in years, the city is going to drain the reservoir. (Snip) But is it possible to calculate precisely how illogical Portland’s decision is? Let’s try to put some numbers on it. Several smart people on Twitter quickly did the math and figured that a typical urination of about 1/8 gallon in a reservoir of 38 million gallons amounts to a concentration of 3 parts per billion.

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
