Dinesh D´Souza´s new movie points
conservatives in the right direction

Creators Syndicate., by David Limbaugh

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/8/2014 11:06:06 AM

Do we conservatives really mean it when we say that we need to promote our ideas in the popular culture through books, movies and other media? If so, we need to support people like Dinesh D´Souza and his latest movie and book, America: Imagine a World Without Her. I saw the movie, and I loved it. D´Souza is a passionate patriot who "chose this country" and loves it with every fiber of his being. Like many of the rest of us, he recognizes that America is under assault, and he is doing all he can to save it. In the

In an example of soft tyranny, COSTCO is removing D´Souza´s book from its shelves (reported at World Net Daily and Moonbattery today).

"The July 1 order required all copies to be removed by July 15."

Going to see the movie later today.

D´Souza is starting to remind me of Galileo Galilei, thrown in jail, later house arrest, for speaking facts, history and science.

We are currently ruled by soft Despots.

Any truth to the story that Costco has pulled the book from their shelves because of pressure from the WH?

FTA:America didn´t steal its wealth; it created it, because its free market system, undergirded by Christian values, gave rise to an explosion of entrepreneurship, growth and unprecedented prosperity. Moreover, but for America, world history would remain a story of wealth by conquest.

One doesn´t have to go back many years in world history to understand that but for America, most survivors of WWII would either be speaking German or Japanese as their "native" language. More recently, thanks to President George W. Bush, the USA is not an Islamic country. I believe that if the current resident in the WH had his way, Americans would be bowing to Mecca three times a day to the Muslim call to prayer which he described as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth."

I am so tired of seeing in the 66 years of my life the DEMONRATS take over and undo all the good that good leaders build up. When we (USA) were lucky enough to get good leaders, they built up our country only to see the LEFTIST COMMIES tear it down when they LIED enough to gain votes and power from the low info voters. And now, they´ve gain a foothold and do not want to let go.....so ... in order to keep that foothold, they will lie, cheat, steal and kill to keep it and the low info voter will continue to help them destroy our country.

Hillary´s ghostwriter´s book is at #91 and continuing to drop like a rock.

Unlike her husband, Michelle Obama doesn´t do extended press conferences. But during a visit Wednesday to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, the first lady took any and all questions from the kids she met there, dishing on everything from her daughters´ prank skills to the president´s cooking. Here´s a top five list of what she revealed about life inside the White House. 1. The president is the target for most of the family´s pranks, though Sasha and Malia need to work on the element of surprise. Asked whom she likes to prank the most, Obama replied, "Oh,

House passes bill to audit Federal Reserve

The House on Wednesday passed legislation to audit the Federal Reserve System. Passed 333-92, the bill would require the comptroller general to conduct an audit of the Federal Reserve´s board of governors and banks within one year and submit a report to Congress on the findings. A total of 106 Democrats joined all but one Republican in support of the measure. A version of the bill sponsored by then-Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) passed in 2012 by a vote of 327-98. Paul´s son, Sen.

Benghazi Select Committee hearings begin

An odd mixture of theatre, seriousness, and even a bit of unintentional self-parody from Rep. Elijah Cummings, kicked off the House Select Committee hearings on Benghazi. On Wednesday, the Committee held its first hearing. The topic, which was proposed by Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), was looking back at Accountability Review Board recommendations to make sure we learn from the past, not repeat mistakes, and protect lives. Uh-huh. Sounds like a nice safe distance from the core of the matter: Name the enemy, fight jihad, and hold every single member of the administration accountable for their irresponsible (at best) actions, or

New York Times Public Editor Margaret Sullivan is right to side with news consumers who are concerned about journalists from the paper meeting for off-the-record sessions with President Obama. One such session occurred last Wednesday, just before the president gave his speech on the response to the Islamic State. As the Huffington Post’s Michael Calderone reported, well-known figures from the New Yorker, The Post and the Times were among those in attendance. One reader, Tom English, complained to Sullivan: “To me, it really looks like the meeting was held to run talking/propaganda points by the media to see how best

   

 



 
Census: Marriage rate at 93-year
low, even including same-sex couples
Washington Examiner (DC), by Paul Bedard    Original Article

The Census Bureau reported Thursday that the nation’s marriage rate is the lowest since 1920, and the first-time inclusion of same sex married couples did little to reverse the decline. According to Pew Research Center analysis, the marriage rate of Americans 18 and older hit a bottom of 50.3 percent in 2013, down from 50.5 percent in 2012. In 1920, the first year mentioned, 65 percent were married, and the marriage rate hit a high of 72.2 percent in 1960. The new data did not put a number on the homes hosting same-sex married couples, though the Census last year

State police continue the round-the-clock manhunt for the man they say ambushed state troopers at the Blooming Grove barracks. Cpl. Bryon Dickson II was killed and Trooper Alex Douglass seriously wounded in the Friday night attack. Police say suspected sniper Eric Matthew Frein, 31, of Canadensis, stalked police from a hidden, wooded area across the road from the barracks, around 11 p.m., and then shot the troopers during a shift change. "Based on our investigation, it is clear to us that Eric Frein has a longstanding grudge with law enforcement and government in general since 2006," said state police Lt.

WASHINGTON – In a symbolic show of support for Ukraine´s fledgling government, President Barack Obama is meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in the Oval Office on Thursday after the leader of the former Soviet republic speaks to a rare joint session of Congress. Poroshenko arrives in Washington seeking more robust U.S military assistance to help his country in its fight against Russian-backed rebels. Obama so far has resisted Ukraine´s request for lethal assistance, though the U.S. has provided about $60 million in nonlethal aid to Ukraine´s military. White House officials made clear that Poroshenko´s visit -- his first to

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control.

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for
