´Duck Dynasty´ Sponsor
We Stand Behind Phil

TMZ, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 12/19/2013 3:21:15 PM

If "Duck Dynasty" network A&E feared advertisers would scatter like waterfowl after a shotgun blast because of Phil Robertson´s anti-gay comments ... it´s not happening. A company called Skyjacker -- which builds truck suspensions -- tells us it stands solidly behind Phil and the show ... saying it´s a matter of God and country -- it´s a free country and Phil has a right to his opinions. Company brass tells us it goes beyond the Constitution ... to the Creator: "We are a Christian- based company and actively share our faith so standing with Phil Robertson is an easy choice for us." Robertson

A&E and the God hating LGBT whacko´s will end up on the short end of the stick on this issue just as they did when they attempted to hurt Chick-fil-A.

Skyjacker is a great company. I used to race in their sponsored rock crawling competitions. They take care of their own.

Good on them! This Pandora´s Box can´t be shut. It´s overdue, this discussion.

Remember what happened with Chick-Fil-A? I will pray the same thing happens with the sponsors of Duck Dynasty who support Phil.

Just don´t buy Duck Dynasty merchandise in support. The vast majority of the money goes to A&E. Buy directly from Duck Commander if you want to show your support.

So what will these sponsors do if A&E continues to suspend Robertson? Will that make them scatter?

Gutless A&E and GLAAD are aiding in spreading the broadminded notion that Phil Robertson is entitled to his opinions as long as he doesn´t express them.

Phil can sing along with John Prine, only barely changing the lyrics, "I dreamed the (PC) Police heard everything I thought. What then? Well, I went to court and the judge´s name was Hoffman." Sin is a reproach to any nation. There will be a steep price to pay.

Did Obama sabotage Kerry on peace talks?
Legal Insurrection, by neo-neocon    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 3/8/2014 1:17:35 PM     Post Reply
Or is this story even true? Is it actually one of those “good-cop/bad-cop” tales instead? It’s difficult to say, but I vote ever-so-slightly for “true.” My opinion of John Kerry is very low, but I think more of him than I do of Obama. The following seems quite characteristic of the president: An Israeli newspaper is reporting that two officials close to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry are quietly accusing President Barack Obama of sabotaging Middle East peace efforts after giving an interview in which he sharply criticized Israeli government policy. The unnamed officials also claim that Kerry was never given a heads-up

DURHAM, N.C.—Inside the auxiliary gymnasium´s side door, down the stairs to the basement, past a door that may be locked, through a dingy underground corridor, up some steps, then a steeper flight of stairs, there´s a light at the end of the tunnel. It´s a hidden entrance to Duke University´s basketball arena. But sneaking into Cameron Indoor Stadium isn´t such a slam dunk. The few students who make it that far find a foul sight: a team in bright yellow uniforms guarding the doors. "Oh, Lord," said one security employee, who wasn´t authorized to speak with the media, before a recent game. "We

For years, the payments went out of the woman´s bank account. Nobody batted an eyelid. Bills were paid. And life went on as normal in the quiet neighborhood of Pontiac, Michigan. Neighbors didn´t notice anything unusual. The woman traveled a lot, they said, and kept to herself. One of them mowed her grass to keep things looking tidy. At some point, her bank account ran dry. The bills stopped being paid. After its warnings went unanswered, the bank holding the mortgage foreclosed on the house, a common occurrence in a region hit hard by economic woes. Still, nobody noticed what had

New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan encouraged student journalists to be accurate in their reporting, and to not plagiarize: And last, another certainty is the need to get it right. We need the strongest possible commitment to accuracy and its close cousin, fairness. Yes, we’re all in the biggest rush in the world to get the news out. But we’ll wreck it all if we don’t make sure as we can that it is verifiably true. Sullivan spoke at the Associated Collegiate Press National College Journalism convention in San Diego last week.

Employers add 175,000 jobs in February,
unemployment rate rises to 6.7 percent

U.S. hiring improved in February from the previous two months despite a blast of wintry weather, likely renewing hopes that growth will accelerate this year. The Labor Department says employers added 175,000 jobs last month, up from just 129,000 in January, which was revised up from 113,000. The unemployment rate rose to 6.7 percent from a five-year low 6.6 percent. More Americans started looking for work but didn´t find jobs. That´s still an encouraging sign because more job hunters suggest that people were more optimistic about their prospects.

Go Ahead, Lick That Spoon.

Not long ago, I made a marble pound cake. Marble pound cake requires making a vanilla batter, adding chocolate to half of it, and then swirling the batters together in a pan. This meant that once my loaf pan was in the oven, I had two bowls and two spoons coated in sweet, egg-y batter. I licked them all clean. Please don’t be alarmed by my lack of manners: I was by myself at the time. But, to be honest, I probably would have licked the bowl even if other people had been around. I always lick the bowl.

Vatican City - Pope Francis confessed Thursday that he took the rosary cross of his late confessor from his casket and wears it to this day in a fabric pouch under his cassock. He said he did so telling the late priest, "Give me half your mercy." Francis made the revelation Thursday during an informal chat with Roman priests about the need to be merciful to their flocks. He told the story of the "great confessor" of Buenos Aires who had heard confessions from most of the diocesan priests as well as from Pope John Paul II when he visited Argentina. When

The new health insurance marketplaces appear to be making little headway in signing up Americans who lack insurance, the Affordable Care Act’s central goal, according to a pair of new surveys. Only one in 10 uninsured people who qualify for private plans through the new marketplaces enrolled as of last month, one of the surveys shows. The other found that about half of uninsured adults have looked for information on the online exchanges or planned to look. The snapshots from the surveys released Thursday provide preliminary answers to what has been one of the biggest mysteries since HealthCare.gov and separate state

Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor, in an interview with NBC News, said this about his opponent, Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran and current Representative Tom Cotton: There’s a lot of people in the Senate that didn’t serve in the military. Obviously in the Senate we have all types of different people, all kinds of different folks that have come from all types of different background— and I think that’s part of that sense of entitlement that he gives off is that, almost like, I served my country, let me into the Senate. But that’s not how it works in Arkansas. To be clear:

The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus is calling for House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his gavel for his behavior at a contentious IRS hearing on Wednesday. Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) told Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday that Issa’s conduct in the hearing — which included cutting off the microphone of Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), the ranking Democrat — amounted to “an affront to the expectations of the American people.” Fudge also said Issa should apologize on the House floor. “The American people have the right to expect that their elected leaders be held to the

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa joined Megyn Kelly Thursday night to react to the uproar over him cutting off Elijah Cummings‘ mic during a contentious IRS hearing, saying that accusations he was “racist” are just “beneath response.” Issa suggested Cummings’ outburst was a “pre-staged event,” but Kelly asked, “Who cares? Let him have his couple of minutes to rip on you! You’re a big guy, you can take it!” He acknowledged that in hindsight, he might have let Cummings rant, but it’s completely unjustified for any member of Congress to try and get his chairmanship revoked over the incident

So, Lois Lerner still won´t talk about her role in the illegal targeting and harassment by the IRS of conservative and Tea Party groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exemptions. Lerner appeared for a second time Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and claimed her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. It isn´t hard to figure out why Lerner´s lips are sealed. First, she knows the House of Representatives can cite her for contempt of Congress, but Attorney General Eric Holder would decide whether she is prosecuted on that charge. Lerner need not worry since President Obama has

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) facetiously recalled “Presidents” Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney to make a point about how Republicans need to “stand for principle” in order to win big elections. Today, Sen. McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

A plea for about a dozen people who know who they are: Will you see “12 Years a Slave” now? It just won the Oscar for Best Picture. It just came out on DVD. Please see it. I’ll even spring for the popcorn. You see, I keep encountering folks, mostly African-American, who have decided that they won’t -- or can’t -- see this movie. Some say they don’t want to be made angry. Others say they don’t want to be traumatized.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) apologized Thursday to his committee´s ranking Democratic member for cutting off his microphone at the end of a hearing Wednesday, according to a local report. Issa told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he personally apologized to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). His apology comes after the House earlier Thursday voted down a motion to censure the chairman for his treatment of Cummings. Issa ended a hearing on the IRS scandal Wednesday despite Cummings´s attempt to make a statement and ask a question. When Cummings persisted in his effort to speak, Issa personally cut

The White House said the US president told his Russian counterpart that Russia’s actions were a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. During the hour-long phone call, President Obama urged Russian forces to return to their bases. The White House said it hoped the crisis could be settled diplomatically and urged the Russian and Ukrainian governments to hold direct talks in an effort to find a settlement. The President called for an agreement which would protect the interests of both Ukrainians and ethnic Russians living in Ukraine. This was the second phone call between the two leaders in a

The millionaire attorney funding a ‘spoiled’ cheerleader’s lawsuit against her own parents let the teenager drink in his house, threw ‘alcoholic parties’ and apparently allowed her to have her first drop of booze, according to court documents. When Rachel Canning was a 15-year-old freshman she got so drunk on vodka at Jon Inglesino’s home that she was sick all over the sidewalk and into a garbage can after her dad Sean picked her up for a basketball game. And according to the Canning family, Inglesino’s wife Amy gave Rachel and her friends wine coolers in the back of a limo

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey
