Gay Black Man Murders Two White Reporters

By |August 26th, 2015|Culture, Mainstream Media, National|2 Comments

As the mainstream continues to incite black-on-white violence, it is nearly impossible to find where the mainstream is reporting the race of the man, Vester Flanagan, who has identified himself as the shooter.

Allegedly, Vester Flanagan who is also known by the stage name of Bryce Williams, murdered the two white reporters this morning in Roanoke, VA.

Flanagan, who is a gay black man, was live tweeting his actions and Flanagan was actually videotaping the murders as he committed them as well, then uploaded to YouTube. The Twitter account has been suspended and YouTube has removed the video.

Even though Flanagan has referred to the Emanuel Church shootings and other instances, indicating he is taking part in a race war, the mainstream media and others are referring to this incidence as “work place violence” instead of a hate crime.
“Why did I do it? I put down a deposit for a gun on 6/19/15. The Church shooting in Charleston happened on 6/17/15…” ABC News reports he wrote.

“What sent me over the top was the church shooting. And my hollow point bullets have the victims’ initials on them,” stated Vester Flanagan in the 23 page manifesto he had faxed to ABC News.

“Yes, it will sound like I am angry…I am.  And I have every right to be.  But when I leave this Earth, the only emotion I want to feel is peace…” he wrote. “The church shooting was the tipping point…but my anger has been building steadily…I’ve been a human powder keg for a while…just waiting to go BOOM!!!!” Further stated by the self-proclaimed “gay” black man, Vester Flanagan.

It appears Vester Flanagan has now died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but given the incredible bias which has been put forth […]

Hillary Clinton Thriving on Controversy

By |August 20th, 2015|National, Politics, Presidential|Comments Off on Hillary Clinton Thriving on Controversy

Hillary Clinton keeps attempting to
make light of a serious situation.
“When is all this talk about her emails going to end?” This was a question I heard someone ask Wednesday morning as more news reports regarding Clinton’s email servers were playing in the background. The person went on to say, “It seems like this has just been going on forever!”

I then began to wonder if people in general are growing so tired of this that they are beginning to tune it out.  It is typically the steady drumbeat of the left against the right which finally wears people down… then people (in general) assume guilt based on a steady diet from the mainstream, regardless of whether it is real or not, and then the mainstream, in lockstep, marches on to their next target.  Many in the mainstream have attempted to run interference for Clinton but this email server problem isn’t going away… and many can no longer ignore or defend it… but have we reached that tipping point where people (in general) actually don’t want to hear anymore about it? This happened before with a previous Clinton in an incident with an intern and perjury, to the point a group called MoveOn.org was formed strictly to hammer the American public about moving on to other things.  Where is MoveOn.org now for this Clinton?

The other day Hillary Clinton made light about the intentional deleting of her emails by stating, “By the way, you may have seen that I’ve recently launched a Snapchat account. I love it. I love it. Those messages disappear all by themselves!” To me, this sounded very similar to something many of us heard as children, “Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah… you can’t get […]

American Holocaust: Planned Parenthood

By |August 19th, 2015|Culture, Health, National|Comments Off on American Holocaust: Planned Parenthood

“There are times when after the procedure
is done that the heart actually is still beating.”
The Center for Medical Progress has released a third episode titled:
Human Capital – Planned Parenthood’s Custom Abortions for Superior Product

These cold, heartless, individuals discuss dissection of a baby and refer to it’s parts as “line items” among other statements which are difficult to hear such as:

“The fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups it just fell out,” stated Perrin Larton of Advanced BioScience Resources.
Van Handel of Novogenix Laboratories, LLC, admits, “There are times when after the procedure is done that the heart actually is still beating.”

The former Planned Parenthood employee recounts her experience and it seems inescapable that any human with a conscience would be able to experience such without serious psychological scarring.

The following is the press release issued this morning regarding the release of the latest video from The Center for Medical Progress:

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 19–The third episode in a new documentary web series and 7th video on Planned Parenthood’s supply of aborted fetal tissue tells a former procurement technician’s harrowing story of harvesting an intact brain from a late-term male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.

The “Human Capital” documentary web series, produced by The Center for Medical Progress, integrates expert interviews, eyewitness accounts, and real-life undercover interactions to explore different themes within Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted fetal tissue. Episode 3, “Planned Parenthood’s Custom Abortions for Superior Product,” launches today at: http://www.centerformedicalprogress.o…

The series focuses on the personal narrative of Holly O’Donnell, a former Blood and Tissue Procurement Technician for StemExpress, a biotech start-up that until last week was partnered with two large northern California Planned Parenthood affiliates to purchase […]

Poor Polling: Haley, Gas Tax

By |August 19th, 2015|Dark Horse Strategy, Politics, South Carolina, State, Taxes|1 Comment

Someone is probably getting paid well to do a bad job of polling!
From Dark Horse Strategy Group:
Last night we were fortunate enough to be sitting with a friend when they received a phone call to participate in a poll. He put it on speaker for everyone to hear and we all thought this was going to be one of the presidential campaigns but it wasn’t.

The majority of the questions centered on Nikki Haley and the gas tax. The group conducting the poll gave themselves some obscure name to hide the identity of who is really behind it and their first two questions asked about two groups which are on opposite sides of the gas tax issue; Fix Our Road and Americans for Prosperity, asking participants how they perceive these groups.

They went on to ask opinion questions of Nikki Haley and boy would we love to see those results! They also asked opinion of the Legislature as well as your own representatives, and of course… the Gas Tax.

Our participant stated they “strongly opposed the gas tax” and then the poll went on to numerous questions on how they could possibly change your mind – knowing the following (i.e. this can be a tax swap), how do you now feel about the gas tax, with each question that attempted to change your mind having the following available responses:

Strongly for the gas tax.
Somewhat for the gas tax.
Somewhat against the gas tax.
Strongly against the gas tax.

What makes this especially bad is that not only did someone craft those responses, leaving out the natural answer of “no change” but there are multiple people typically involved in the polling process, so how on earth could a set of so-called professionals all […]

Schwaben House

By |August 15th, 2015|Food Critic, Travel|Comments Off on Schwaben House

German and European cuisine for the discriminating palate…
I would suggest making reservations or at least calling ahead to make certain of seating. As we entered Schwaben House for our first time, the atmosphere was immediately captivating with very little German or European influence. The bar was made of a long-split log and was absolutely gorgeous.
 

First thing up was a salad and I can honestly say that I’ve never had a salad quite like this one before.  It had some leafy greens as you would expect and it had shaved carrots which wouldn’t have been abnormal except they were in a pile to themselves, beside a small pile of kraut and a few green beans.  All were in the salad together but separate with a dressing that I just won’t even try to describe, but let’s just say as unusual as it was; it was a great blend of flavors.

No bread or anything like that was brought to the table, but instead they brought each person a single meatball in marinara sauce from “Chef Robert” and while it was a bit unusual, it was good and particularly of note is that this, along with everything that followed was obviously crafted with quality ingredients.

Next up (and I simply had to order this as I hadn’t had it in a very long time) was garlic soup. It was fantastic, but if you are on a date, you had better make certain your date will be eating some of this as well. I didn’t care much however for the way it was served (in a mason jar).  This makes it a bit awkward to eat with the spoon going in and coming out at an angle, as it […]

Loser Series: The No Brainers

By |August 14th, 2015|Politics, Presidential|Comments Off on Loser Series: The No Brainers

Presidential hopefuls who just
cannot possibly win no matter what.
From Dark Horse Strategy Group:

We’ve previously written about two candidates (Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina) which don’t stand a chance of winning. Recently Fox News divided a presidential debate into two sections, the top ten and the bottom seven. While we still acknowledge this could be anybody’s race… or rather almost anybody’s race, we are simply eliminating those who can’t win, one-by-one… but today we’ll go ahead and quickly take out two:

George Pataki
From his campaign website: Former three-term governor of New York George Pataki brought conservative solutions to a state in crisis, revived the economy and led through the worst terrorist attack on American soil. As Governor, he inspired people of all backgrounds to work together and believe in a better future.
I met Governor Pataki about ten years ago and he was very personable and I honestly didn’t know who he was at the time… the problem is most people still don’t know who he is. Pataki could make a decent showing in New Hampshire but we would expect him to drop out immediately after that primary as he is unlikely to do well enough to even continue to South Carolina. He just simply will not have the resources to mount a serious campaign.

Jim Gilmore

Who?

He was governor of Virginia from 1998 to 2002 but has a serious name ID problem and will be absent the resources to change that.

Perhaps the biggest indicator that he doesn’t have a very serious campaign is the fact that you can search for “Jim Gilmore” on Google and best of luck finding the campaign website. We tried a variety of searches and eventually had to go to a third party website to […]

Texas Roadhouse

By |August 11th, 2015|Food Critic, Travel|Comments Off on Texas Roadhouse

Texas Roadhouse used to be one of my favorite places…
I actually don’t care to eat out very much. It may be because I am (admittedly) a bit of a food snob and when I cook at home, especially when I’m cooking for others, I like to use quality ingredients and I can be rather picky about how I prepare things. Mostly, when I eat out, it is tied to a meeting, a date, or because I’m tired and want to just sit, relax, and have someone else bring me food.

Sunday, we hit an early service and church and the rest of the day was spent doing some mild hiking with my girlfriend in the Blue Ridge Mountains with a fair amount of time spent on the road. So, Sunday evening when we arrived back in Greenville, exhausted, it seemed like a nice thing to do would be to hit the Texas Roadhouse.

It was a little crowded but the two of us were seated right away… in a corner booth large enough to seat eight people. It seemed a little odd they would waste such a space on a couple and that wouldn’t have been a bother other than we were surrounded by families and there were no less than five high-chairs at the four tables surrounding us. Don’t get me wrong, I like kids just fine but there’s only so much screaming toddler I can take when trying to have a relaxing dinner out with a date.

I ordered a steak and the waitress asked how I would like it cooked. I replied, “somewhere between medium and rare would be fine.” Then the waitress gave me a bit of a lecture on how they took cooking […]

The Political Cycle

By |August 8th, 2015|Politics, Presidential|Comments Off on The Political Cycle

New political cycle is why more and more
people are joining the “not an ounce of
difference between the two parties” crowd. 
Step 1) 2008 – Christians (largely) sat at home and didn’t vote so we became ruled by Obama and other ungodly Democrats.

Step 2) 2009 – Republican candidates promised to fix everything if the people vote them in to a House majority as Congress holds the purse strings.

Step 3) 2010 – We the People took them at their word, worked hard for their campaigns and across the country we voted in the new Republicans.

Step 4) 2011 – Establishment tells newly elected Republicans that they cannot actually undo any damage perpetrated upon the American people by the ungodly Democrats.

Repeat Step 1) 2012 – Christians (nearly 80%) sat at home and didn’t vote so Obama and his ungodly Democrats (aided by Republicans) continued to rule.

And so the cycle repeats itself with the same “step 2” as Republicans promise in 2013 they just needed a majority in the Senate as well, only to have “step 3” repeat itself in 2014 quickly followed by “step 4 in 2015” and so what are we supposed to do in 2016?
We need a very serious RINSE cycle!
I will completely admit that Donald Trump has some issues but as far as I can see, there are only two candidates who have proven they are willing to fight GOP leadership: Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. Now out of those two, which one actually has the resources to pull it off?

When the Democrats AND Republicans BOTH agree they don’t want Trump and the mainstream media (to include Fox News) is fully cooperating then how is it even remotely possible to believe both sides are in this for […]

GOP Presidential Polling Trend

By |August 3rd, 2015|Politics, Presidential|Comments Off on GOP Presidential Polling Trend

Trump gained even more in latest Fox News
presidential polling on the GOP Candidates
Walker drops while Bush, Carson, Cruz and Huckabee also increase.
According to Fox News, Trump also beating Christie 2 to 1 in New Jersey.

With this latest of six polls conducted by Fox News since March 2015, we can now lay out how candidates are trending.

Where Donald Trump came on the scene in March, he is the only candidate which has consistently gained and Trump is now up to 26% after entering the polling at just 3%. During June, Fox News conducted two polls and Trump received a sizable bounce that he has been able to continue to ride upward.

Jeb Bush is also trending upwards over the past few months where all other candidates are either trending downward or flat-lining at the bottom.

Scott Walker came on the scene at 15% then declined to 9%. Walker should have capitalized on his popularity months ago but instead allowed his campaign to get stale. If Scott Walker wasn’t able to announce for some reason, he should have then waited out the summer slump, but instead the campaign made a critical error of a mid-summer announcement only to receive a bump back up to 15 points where the campaign previously was and (as we predicted) Walker wasted an opportunity and has dropped back down to 9%.

Ted Cruz came on the scene at 10% and as the Trans Pacific Partnership came onto the scene with the support of Cruz, his numbers have steadily declined all the way down to 4% last month. Ted Cruz then called the Republican leadership “liars” and this has resulted in a 2 point bump for Cruz but that’s simply not going to be enough […]
