Redskins fire back against Harry
Reid, senators on name change

Washington Times (D.C), by John Solomon

Original Article

The Washington Redskins took on Democrats in the U.S. Senate on Friday, telling Majority Leader Harry Reid that his efforts to orchestrate a campaign to force a team name change were misguided and failed to recognize the name’s “deep and personal meaning.” “I hope you will attend one of our home games, where you would witness first-hand that the Washington Redskins are a positive, unifying force for our community in a city and region that is divided on so many levels,” team President Bruce Allen wrote Mr. Reid. The letter offered several rebuttals to arguments that Mr. Reid and other

Good for Bruce Allen. At last someone willing to fight back against politically correct hyper-silliness, and also to tell the lib senators to butt out of something that is none of their business.

IS there a prize for the winning entry? The Thinskins, Redbutts, Paleskins, or just reach an historic compromise with the Pinkskins?

As a Cowboys fan, the Redskins are our arch-rivals and I would normally have a really hard time saying anything nice about them.

But I´m 100% behind the Redskins for standing up to the PC bullying!!!!! Stand strong!!!!!

Facing a crisis of illegal immigration on the Mexican border, President Obama welcomed 25 new U.S. citizens at the White House Friday and pledged to take steps “to make our immigration system smarter and more efficient.” “If we want to keep attracting the best and the brightest from beyond our shores, we’re going to have fix our immigration system, which is broken, and pass common-sense immigration reform,” Mr. Obama said at an Independence Day naturalization ceremony for members of the U.S. armed forces and their spouses.

I grew up listening to Paul Harvey on the radio. I didn’t always find him, but somehow, he always had a way of finding me. I’d usually be driving back from a business trip and inevitably, I’d tune in to some obscure station – and there he was. Loved it. I also loved his resoluteness – particularly when it came to the principles and values for which he so deeply cared. Regardless of which direction the political winds blew, Paul Harvey stood steadfast for the beliefs he held dear and his unwavering love of country. To Paul, America really was

Americans hardly need an excuse to display the flag, but few occasions bring the red, white and blue out in fuller force than our national birthday. Jeane Kirkpatrick once said, “Americans need to face the truth about themselves, no matter how pleasant it is.” The truth is that the United States is an exceptional nation: It’s the world’s oldest and most stable capitalist democracy, older even than Great Britain, which did not become a mass democracy until the late 19th century. It’s the first nation founded in an act of rebellion against a colonial power. It’s the first nation founded

President Barack Obama will attend three fundraisers in Texas next week but will not travel to the border to see the crisis that many say he has exacerbated by not enforcing the country´s immigration laws and vowing to enact unilaterally more executive actions to ease deportations. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said at Thursday´s White House press briefing that Obama is scheduled to attend a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Dallas on Wednesday and two events for the Democratic National Committee in Austin on Wednesday and Thursday.

Richard Scaife, conservative champion,

Tribune-Review owner and philanthropist Richard Mellon Scaife, whose vision and funding reinvigorated conservative politics in America, died Friday, July 4, in his home. His death came just one day after his 82nd birthday. Many of the nation´s leading conservatives considered him to be the man who sustained the Republican Party after its crushing defeat in the 1964 presidential election and the Watergate scandal in 1972. His support for and promotion of a conservative agenda led to Ronald Reagan´s election as president in 1980 and the nation´s turn toward the principles those two men shared. He and Reagan remained friends and

I have spent the last week in Likely, California (population 63, elevation 4,449), three hours north of Reno atop the Modoc Plateau, doing narrow-band and photographic imaging of the stars under some of the darkest night skies in the United States. Additionally, there has been no internet or cell phone reception within 20 miles – a blessed interruption from the ever-expanding catalog of scandals, corruption, and catastrophic domestic and foreign policy failures that typify the administration currently in power.

The United States is the world’s greatest beer-making nation, with more breweries turning out more beer styles than any country on Earth. We’ve been drinking beer since the very beginning. The Pilgrims settled in Plymouth because “our victuals (are) much spent, especially our beere,” according to a diary entry written aboard the Mayflower. The American Revolution, meanwhile, was famously fermented by brewers such as Samuel Adams. So to honor Independence Day, we compiled a list of the 10 most patriotic beers in Boston.

Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC. Carney is in talks for a contributor position. If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.

In a slip of the tongue, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday that President Obama will naturalize “illegal” immigrants in a ceremony on Independence Day. Mr. Earnest was discussing the naturalization ceremony scheduled for Friday when he told reporters that Mr. Obama believes it is appropriate for the commander-in-chief “to naturalize those individuals who are in this country illegally — uh legally — who signed up to join the military to defend this country.” “That is a pretty strong testament to the values that are held by those immigrants,” he said. “I can tell you that

Maybe we’ve been conned. There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth, and his administration is the gang that can’t shoot straight. There’s a lot of evidence to support that belief.

Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor´s campaign demanded an apology Wednesday from Republican Rep. Tom Cotton after he questioned the depth of Pryor´s religious faith. In an interview Tuesday with a Fayetteville, Ark., radio station, Cotton was asked about the Supreme´s Court decision to allow some businesses to opt out of health coverage for contraceptives, citing religious freedoms. "Barack Obama and Mark Pryor think that faith is only something that happens at 11 o´clock on Sunday mornings," Cotton said. "That´s when we worship, but faith is what we live every single day."

This past week, Fox News, Megyn Kelly, and Dinesh D’Souza gave a platform to an entity that hates America and our way of life. Seems the prospect of smokin’ out a snake like Bill Ayers was too good to pass up. Getting an exclusive one-on-one with a crazy, violent communist with a small c was quite a coup for Kelly and D’Souza...or was it? Since lying and deceit generally benefit the liar, we have to ask, ”What was in it for Bill Ayers?” A mea culpa for past crimes? Hardly. After listening to Ayers, we must conclude: once a psychopath, always a psychopath.

President Obama’s displeasure with gridlock in Washington — and with the Republicans he blames for it — has been rising for months. This week it has boiled over. From the Rose Garden to the Cabinet Room to near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, the president has signaled more than mere annoyance at the state of affairs at the halfway point of this year. His disdain for congressional Republicans has steadily increased; his disrespect for their tactics has hardened into contempt. With immigration reform dead for this year, if not for the remainder of Obama’s presidency; with House Speaker John A.

The White House is not planning to reassess its strategy for handling thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming across the border amid mass protests. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he had not spoken to President Obama about protests in California that blocked buses full of immigrant detainees from reaching a processing station. But Earnest said there was no expectation of changing strategies to deal with the flood of minors "at this point.” "At this point, what we´re focused on is making sure that we can ramp up the resources that are necessary to meet this growing need," Earnest said.

Recent events have not been kind to Hillary Clinton, but she is far from an innocent victim in what surely is one of the worst revival tours in memory. Hillary Clinton, still unwilling to acknowledge her and her boss’s failure to accurately assess the threats from al-Qaeda and the spread of jihaists into Libya, stubbornly insists we really don’t know why the jihadists attacked and killed our people. Oh, puhleez. While not a supporter of civilian trials for enemy combatants, I must admit there is something satisfying about the prosecution’s version of events laid out for all to see. The New

Higher education is no longer just for kids in the top quarter or the top half of the class. College is for everyone," First lady Michelle Obama told a gathering of school counselors in Florida on Tuesday. "Every student in this country needs some higher education, whether that´s two-year degree, a four-year degree, or professional training of some sort." Mrs. Obama went to the annual meeting of the American School Counselor Association in Florida to thank counselors for taking on a demanding job without the resources necessary to meet the challenges. They, in turn, made her an honorary school counselor.

The United States added a stunning 288,000 jobs last month, sending the unemployment rate down to 6.1 percent and the Dow Jones Industrial Average shooting over 17,000 for the first time. June’s job numbers marked the fifth straight month of job gains over 200,000, the best stretch since the 1990s tech boom. A Bloomberg survey of economists expected an increase of 215,000 jobs in June. The unemployment rate dropped .2 percent to 6.1, the lowest since September 2008. May’s job report was also revised upward, showing 224,000 jobs added. The numbers follow strong reports for the Bay State last month, with
