Star Wars Episode VII: Déjà vu

By |December 18th, 2015|Entertainment|Comments Off on Star Wars Episode VII: Déjà vu

Great movie, but it could have had a better title
than “The Force Awakens” – perhaps Déjà vu?
George Lucas created something great back in 1977 with Star Wars IV: A New Hope, and then the following episodes of V: Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi were each good movies. The prequels each fell short as they had a completely different look and feel to everything along with the very poor choice of introducing the character Jar Jar Binks. It was almost as though George Lucas himself didn’t actually understand the universe he had created. Before even being released, it has created an air of excitement Lucas was basically out and that J. J. Abrams would be steering the new ship under Disney.

When Episode VI was being made, there was talk of calling the movie “Revenge of the Jedi” but they went with “Return of the Jedi” as a true Jedi should not be seeking revenge. Well you can argue all you like as to whether a Jedi “should” seek revenge, but the better question would be; “could” a Jedi seek revenge? The answer would be yes a Jedi could seek revenge but not without opening himself up to the dark side. Falling short of what one should do and dealing with the consequences would have been a better storyline and would have better laid the groundwork for a future struggle (Episode VII) as there is always going to be a future struggle.
If you are still reading and you have not seen the movie, I would urge you not to go any further…
Which now brings us to that future struggle and it […]

The Brainwashing of Multiculturalism

By |November 11th, 2015|Education|Comments Off on The Brainwashing of Multiculturalism

The latest video by Neel Kolhatkar titled
Modern Educayshun
exposes the infiltration of
multiculturalism in public education.
This is truly one of the best videos I have ever seen on YouTube. The video does a fantastic job of exposing what is really going on and does so in a very entertaining fashion. It comes across as satire, yet it’s not. You will want to laugh but you can’t because you will realize that tragically this is very true.

The acting done by those playing the students and teacher is incredible and impressive, especially Penelope, who had some of the best lines:
“We don’t ask questions, questions are offensive.”

“We haven’t added our privilege points yet, don’t you know anything?”

“You think you are so great with your math and your science and your facts…”

“You are so violating me with your different opinions.”

“If you don’t stop verbally assaulting us, we will be forced to attack you in self-defense.”
This may be a European-based production, but none-the-less it is completely relevant in regards to where the US public education system has been moving. Where most other cultures are finding it in their best interest to educate students on how to compete with the world, the federal government takeover of education in Western Society is mostly geared toward social engineering.

We can use a multitude of labels: Political Correctness, Feminism, Social Justice, Neo-Progressivism, etc. We have already had an entire generation divested of their capacity for independent thought and soon the beast will have consumed another generation as well.

For several decades a fight over public education has been raging.  We’ve had plenty of well-meaning people fight for school choice an other methods to free children from this tragic environment.  Now that we have been witnessing for years as […]

Judge Orders Bindi to Prove Dad is Dead

By |November 9th, 2015|Entertainment, Judicial, National|Comments Off on Judge Orders Bindi to Prove Dad is Dead

Global news apparently doesn’t reach Los Angeles courtroom
I don’t really care for reality shows like ABC’s Dancing with the Stars (DWTS), but this situation is just too odd to ignore.

Remember Steve Irwin (Crocodile Hunter)? Almost hard to believe it has been nine years since his tragic and bizarre death when a stingray thrusted a barb into his heart and killed him at just 44 years old.

His daughter Bindi Irwin was just eight years old at the time. She is now 17 and because she is a minor, a judge (who apparently lives under a rock) has actually ruled that Bindi prove to the court her father is really dead in order for her contract with DWTS to be approved.

“It’s unclear if the judge is unaware Steve died in 2006, or if she’s just a stickler for a death certificate,” reported TMZ.

Ben Carson Leads with Southern Ladies

By |November 9th, 2015|Politics, Presidential, South Carolina, State|Comments Off on Ben Carson Leads with Southern Ladies

GOP Presidential Candidate Ben Carson is
in first place among South Carolina Women
In a poll conducted this past weekend for PNN by Compingo Marketing and Research, it didn’t really surprise us to see Donald Trump hit the number one position in South Carolina with 26.3%, but there were some interesting points, particularly when it comes to the female voter.

There were nearly 1500 voters polled in the state of South Carolina. Here is the breakdown:

Now if you take Trump’s support and you break it out by gender, you will find that Trump is pretty even having 51.6% male supporters and 48.4% female supporters. It doesn’t matter whether you like Donald Trump or hate him – what this says, without all the rhetoric, is that his campaign is doing a good job.

Now, if only women were allowed to vote in South Carolina, then Trump is no longer in first place – Ben Carson is. Strictly looking at the female side of the poll, Carson is at 26% and Trump trails at 23%. Carson’s support, when you break it down by gender is at 37% male and 63% female. For whatever reason, Carson has connected with the southern female voter. What this really tells us is that Carson’s campaign needs to be adjusted, that it isn’t well-rounded. That’s not a bad thing – what it actually shows is that Carson has an avenue by which he could catch up to, or even overtake Trump. The campaign just needs to come up with a strategy to maintain their lead with females while they cure their deficiency with males.

Oddly enough, as extreme as the split is between genders with Ben Carson, Marco Rubio’s gender split was 32% male and 68% female. […]

The Hill Buries Speaker John Boehner

By |September 29th, 2015|Congressional, National, Politics|1 Comment

Perhaps it is lost on Boehner, but what is all over the barn floor is not chocolate candy. It is the remains of the Obama agenda that has been rejected by the House.

Great article at The Hill by Rick Manning who makes some great points and says what many of us are thinking as well.  Manning holds nothing back as he begins his article (Time to Really Say Goodbye Mr Speaker) with:
On Friday, I praised Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on his decision to leave office; now, I’m going to bury him. What changed? Boehner’s announced intention to not go away, but instead to use his lame-duck period to “clean the barn.”
How is any of this supposed to work? How is any of this supposed to benefit the people or even “the party?”

You know how it is when an employee comes in one day and gives his two week notice; the employer doesn’t have to accept that notice, especially in environments which a person could do some serious damage during that time. How often have you seen an employer just go ahead and have the employee box up their stuff and get escorted out the door? This is where we need to say, “Thank you so much Mr. Speaker for your notice, now box up and vacate the position immediately!”

What Manning is calling for is a reasonable approach:
With the vote for Speaker still pending, the majority leader can and should thwart any egregious Boehner action simply by using his power over the legislative calendar. Boehner should finish out the two-month continuing resolution that he is working on and then retire gracefully on Oct. 1, allowing the House to move forward with the new leadership it so […]

Greenville Health System Going Private

By |September 6th, 2015|Health, South Carolina, State|3 Comments

PNN EXCLUSIVE: Greenville Health System (GHS)
plotting to move from a Public Non Profit to a Private Entity
We make no bones about it; we (PNN) are a hardcore group of conservatives attempting to build a more modern news outlet because we love the free market and detest the liberal mainstream media. We also believe in transparency when it comes to our government which places us in an awkward situation in respect to what GHS is attempting to do, so we will lay out the facts as we know them and leave it up to you to decide.

In 1912 the original hospital began with just 84 beds.

In 1947 State Act 432 creates Greenville General Hospital System to serve Greenville County. At this point, they became a taxpayer subsidized entity.

In 1966, I was born at Greenville Memorial Hospital and their name changed to Greenville Hospital System and the Board of Trustees purchased a 128-acre site on Grove Road. From this point forward, GHS continued to greatly expand, opening new facilities every few years, such as Marhall Pickens, a Nursing School, Children’s Hospital, Cancer Center, and much more, all with the help of taxpayers.

In 2007 GHS receives its largest single gift of $2.5 million from BI-LO® Charities for a children’s cancer center, so it goes to show that charity has helped grow GHS significantly as well.

In 2013 Greenville Hospital System becomes Greenville Health System.

Because We the People are not to suffer taxation without representation, our elected representatives pick the Board of Trustees to serve the public’s interest.

Although we have not been able to confirm this one piece of information directly; we are told that GHS is now the largest healthcare system in the state of South Carolina with […]

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 […]
