Islam is the Opposite of Tolerant
Obama said at Cairo University in 2009 that “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.” This was a lie more extreme than Obama’s promise that under Obamacare you could keep your own doctor. Obama’s lying so early in his career about Islam’s “tolerance” was a precursor to his…Continue

Former Supreme Court Associate Justice, John Paul Stevens, has written a book. As you might expect from one of the liberal stalwarts on the court, he has some helpful suggestions on how that pesky Constitution can be changed to allow for an easier transition to the Worker's Paradise, known as European Socialism. He was nominated by the way, by yet another Republican President who was duped into believing the idiotic advice of an adviser who kept his head hidden squarely…Continue

COMMON CORE: NEBRASKA FATHER BLASTS EDUCATION AGENCY WITH THE TRUTH
On 4.8.14, Henry W. Burke blasted the Nebraska Department of Education and State Board of Education for building their Nebraska curriculum standards on the very same foundation as Common Core Standards.

We do not know what event will be the trigger to economic collapse or war; we do know that our "leaders" in Washington, D.C. are culpable barring a major natural catastrophe. There are several events currently in play that have an impact on our future in order of importance or probability (in my opinion).
1. A worldwide Ebola outbreak. The new strain that has been…Continue

Whether you love math or hate math, there is one thing that can be said about math. Numbers don’t lie. People lie. Numbers don’t. And there are some numbers Americans had better pay attention to.

“We’re not being governed. We’re being ruled by incompetence.”
It is refreshing to read a book that reflects one’s own views and “Guardian of the Republic” by Allen West, a former Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army for over twenty years and a former, one-term congressman from Florida, who is perhaps best known these days as a Fox News channel contributor. He is a very conservative, articulate black American.
As he points out,…Continue

The U.S. Census Bureau released statistics recently (expertly summarized by Terrence Jeffrey of CNS News, April 2014) that reported the shocking financial mess that politicians have created by their unfettered spending for more than a half century. The efforts of idealists to make the U.S.A. a heaven on earth has placed in jeopardy the future security of millions of Americans.
The ideologists who lead the nation are the same today as those who led the…Continue
