Comic Character Archie to Die
Taking Bullet for Gay Friend
Pushing Gun Control

Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by AWR Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/14/2014 12:41:56 PM

On July 16, comic character Archie Andrews, of Life With Archie, will die after being shot while protecting gay friend Kevin Keller. Keller is "Archie Comics´ first openly gay character." According to the Associated Press, Keller is "a married military veteran and newly elected senator who´s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting." Archie Comics´ publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the way in which Archie will die was carefully chosen. While he could have been killed saving "Betty" or saving "Veronica," doing so for Keller was something "that would really resonate

Comments:
Here is yet another example of the complete trashing of our culture. Over the weekend I watched the special National Geographic had on related to the 90´s. One segment focused on Tupac Shakur, his murder and rap music. That was when the decline started. All of the murderous gang members emulate what is contained in that garbage. That filthy, violent "music" never should have been allowed to be put out over the airwaves.

Couldn´t take a bullet for a Christian... Right?

How about just stopping a robbery for a black mans nikes? Are there even black characters in Archie? I don´t seem to hear about them.

Socialist programming. All this is.

The "gay" character should have also been protecting a lesbian/transgender mixed race couple and their adopted Asian child from KKK members being led by Jeb Bush.

Just to make sure all the grievance groups felt included it their pathetic fantasy.

The "Archie" franchise hasn´t been relevant for decades. In the vain effort to produce new material and story lines, Archie Comics jumped the shark and became just another facile tool for promoting ´progressive´ social views. And this particular episode is so unimaginatively contrived, it is almost a caricature of itself.

The lazy thinking of liberals on the subject of guns is familiar to everyone. No doubt each poster has had the short conversation with a friend or family member about firearms. They wait till you stop talking. They don´t listen or reason when the subject comes up. It is willful ignorance and magical thinking and the neocommunist left takes full advantage of it.

Illegals demand representation

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

Illegal immigrants plan to picket the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings. “We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations,” said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action. Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand. The groups are fighting

National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Monday said the civilian death toll in Gaza is “alarming.” Appearing on MSNBC, the top White House adviser first said that the Obama administration “fully supports” Israel’s right to defend itself against threats like those from Hamas. “It’s the U.S. view, as well, that the death toll and the civilian toll in Gaza is rising in an alarming pace,” Rice continued. “It’s a concern that is grave and deepening on the part of the United States, the American people and the entire international community.” Rice proceeded to call for “an immediate, unconditional humanitarian cease-fire,” echoing what

The Islamic State has opened a “marriage bureau” for women who want to wed militants in its “caliphate” spanning northern Syria and Iraq. The bureau, operating out of Al-Bab, in northern Syria, is designed for “single women and widows who would like to marry IS fighters,” the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told Agence France-Presse. Citing residents, the organization said women were asked to register with the office, “and IS fighters will come knocking at their door and officially ask for marriage.” The Islamic State has seized large swaths of northern and eastern Syria, the Iraq-Syria border, and parts of northern and

I’m unable to feign surprise at LifeNews’ story about the latest from the provocateur in chief. President Barack Obama has nominated a new “Religious Freedom Ambassador,” but his nominee opposes protecting the religious freedoms of the owners of Hobby Lobby, who don’t want to be forced to pay for drugs for their employees that cause abortions. Obama announced that he will nominate Rabbi David Nathan Saperstein as Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom at the State Department. Saperstein is a longtime pro-abortion advocate whose group has opposed pro-life legislation. — Secretary of John Kerry also introduced him at a press briefing late Monday

Our friend Mexico facilitates the exodus through its own sovereign territory (hoping that no one stops along the transit, and happy that the border is further shredded). Central American governments seem happy too. More money will be sent back home. Fewer mouths will be left to feed. Possible dissidents will emigrate.

From Europe to the Middle East, we have seen how disaster follows U.S. retreat and disengagement from the world. But the one area where President Obama seemed to be leaning forward was drone strikes. He personally approved terrorist “kill lists” and has taken out many hundreds of terrorists with drones in Pakistan, Yemen and East Africa. So why, when Iraqi officials began pleading with him one year ago to strike Islamic State terrorists with drones, did Obama repeatedly refuse — standing by while terrorists overran the country? House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce made the stunning revelation in a congressional hearing

Some 83,000 Pentagon employees and contractors who handle classified intelligence were found to have unpaid federal taxes totaling $730 million, which makes them more likely to “compromise classified information,” according to a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). At least 83,000 Defense Department tax delinquents “were determined eligible for secret, top secret, or sensitive compartmented information (SCI) clearances, or related interim clearances” despite their outstanding debts, according to the report. Some of those with back taxes are likely security-cleared employees of the executive branch, legislative branch, and the intelligence community, due to the large scope of the GAO’s analysis.

Reporters covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for NBC, CBS, Reuters, and other outlets brazenly reported false information on Monday claiming Israel was responsible for attacks on Palestinian civilians that were actually committed by Hamas. The reporters have faced no repercussions yet for the promulgation of erroneous and biased information. It is yet another example of how reporters for major outlets in the Middle East interject their anti-Israel bias into their supposedly neutral reporting on the conflict. After explosions were spotted at two civilian outposts in Gaza, the reporters immediately tweeted that Israel was to blame, though there was little evidence to corroborate this. In

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a CNN/ORC poll has revealed. According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote, and Mr. Obama would receive 44%, CNN reported. Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election. The poll said, however, that the former Massachusetts governor would lose against Hillary Clinton by double digits in a hypothetical election. Mrs. Clinton would earn 55% of the vote, with Mr. Romney at 42%.

A leading drug policy researcher, David Murray, has a must-read piece up at the Hudson Institute website, "Comparing Marijuana and Alcohol: Seriously." Murray´s article is a devastating deconstruction of claims that marijuana is relatively safe, or at least safer than alcohol.

The Catholic Church—through the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration—both paved the road for Barack Hussein Obama’s ultimate takeover of Free West society and continues to actively enable the Fundamental Transformation of America by sinking the US in a tsunami of illegal aliens. In coming to Obama’s aid in erasing forever America’s borders, the bishops sold the USA out, including its Catholics, for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver. In biblical terms, Obama and the Catholic bishops—who both birthed his progress to the seat of power and back him on his Fundamental Transformation mission—are in in league with the devil.

GAZA CITY — The conflict in Gaza raged on Sunday, even as both Israel and Hamas offered brief truces and President Obama pressed Israel for an “immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire,” reflecting growing concern over the rising death toll. Israel denied Sunday that it was responsible for one of the most shocking attacks in the 20-day conflict, saying its soldiers were not behind the deaths of 16 Palestinians killed by shelling three days earlier as they sought refuge in a U.N. school near an area of intense fighting. Israel’s military, however, offered no details about what it called a “comprehensive inquiry”

World leaders are increasingly pointing to U.S. President Obama’s failures in the Middle East. Some are direct and blunt. For example, during his recent visit to Brazil, Russian President Vladimir Putin was asked by journalists about U.S. sanctions against Russia due to the Ukrainian crisis. While naturally condemning such moves, part of his response was to accuse the Obama administration of “encouraging war between neighboring states.” In the same context, Putin added: American objectives have not been realized, nor have they accomplished anything, because everything has collapsed. Afghanistan faces problems, and Iraq and Libya are falling apart. Egypt also was
