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.

Fred Thompson Dies at 73

By |November 1st, 2015|National, Politics, State, Tennessee|Comments Off on Fred Thompson Dies at 73

Former US Senator (and actor)
Fred Thompson of Tennessee dies at 73
Fred Thompson dies after a recurrence of lymphoma.

Statement issued by the Thompson family:

“It is with a heavy heart and a deep sense of grief that we share the passing of our brother, husband, father, and grandfather who died peacefully in Nashville surrounded by his family,” the statement reads.

Thompson was very well known for many things:

Watergate attorney

Law and Order

Presidential Candidate

Numerous movie appearances

From the Tennessean:

Born in Alabama, Fred Dalton Thompson grew up across the state line in Lawrenceburg, Tenn. Known then as “Freddie,” Mr. Thompson was described as a “class cut-up” and “clown” by a high school basketball teammate in a Boston Globe article.
Although he was a well-respected athlete, his high school banned him playing basketball after he married then-wife Sarah Lindsey at the age of 17. Not a particularly impressive student, he struggled with school and his future until his father-in-law gave him the autobiography of Clarence Darrow, the famed attorney from the Scopes trial in Dayton, Tenn.
“I just knew it, I was 17 and I wanted be a lawyer, it’s the only thing I considered for five minutes,” Mr. Thompson told the Globe in 2007. “Until I was 17, it never occurred to me I had to be anything, but at 17 I knew I wanted to be a lawyer.”

Fred Thompson was one of the great ones and will be missed…

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 […]

Las Vegas Police Officer Ambushed Today

By |September 6th, 2015|Culture, National, Nevada, State|Comments Off on Las Vegas Police Officer Ambushed Today

For the SECOND time in three days a Las Vegas
police officer has been shot in the line duty.
This time a police officer was attacked “ambush-style” while he was in his patrol car at a red-light, as the suspect fired three shots then fled.

We went combed through numerous reports in the mainstream media and as per usual with their double-standard, we immediately know the shooter is not white as his race, nor his mug shot could be found. It could be out there somewhere, but in our search of both national and local mainstream, we simply could not locate it.

We did find out through a reliable source that the shooter was Mexican. NOT that it actually matters what race someone is when they pull the trigger in such hateful disregard for an officer’s life – we simply keep pointing out the hypocrisy and bias of the mainstream which has an agenda they continue to follow.

According to Las Vegas Review Journal:
Two officers were in the car leaving a disturbance call at a 99 Cents Only store, 4910 Tropicana Boulevard, near Nellis Boulevard, trying to go westbound on Tropicana when a man with a semi-automatic handgun came up and started shooting at the car, Metro Sgt. John Sheahan said.

The officer was taken to University Medical Center with injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening.

A foot chase ensued until the man dropped the gun and surrendered, according to Sheahan. No shots were fired by the officers, Metro Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said.

“He didn’t resist or put up a fight,” Robert Benjamin, 44, said.

Benjamin was “flying a sign for Jesus” on the corner when he heard three gunshots. He saw the officer who was unharmed chase the shooter, a man […]

AFP Defending the American Dream Summit

By |August 29th, 2015|Dimsdale Debate, National, Politics|Comments Off on AFP Defending the American Dream Summit

Americans For Prosperity Defending the
American Dream Summit in Columbus, Ohio
Americans for Prosperity… The name may sound like just another activist group and if you’re not familiar with them, you wouldn’t know if they have a few members, or if they are even an “official organization” with just one member or some sort of group with a just a single issue focus. With the plethora of groups/organizations out there it’s easy to overlook any one of them… and I would likely have overlooked this one had the group not rallied to defend against the gas tax when it became such a big issue in my home state of SC. After a few events focused on the gas tax controversy during the last legislative session we discovered the tidal wave of activism that is making a difference across the nation, state-by-state, issue-by-issue, phone-call-by-phone-call. The Americans For Prosperity Summit was about to show us what AFP was all about.

Our show’s producer, Marcus Strickland, and I decided to head to Ohio last week for their “Defending the American Dream” summit which was (for lack of a better word) epic! We rode in the bus, a twelve hour trip, with many other activists who weren’t just posting on Facebook anymore but actually getting out in their communities, knocking on doors, making phone calls, and actually talking to people face-to-face. Engaging people who may not agree with us is an art which has been lost to many in the conservative movement, and is the foundation of Americans for Prosperity’s strategy to make a difference.

Being in the middle of that Ohio summit gave us an air of encouragement that something was actually being accomplished, that a wave is about to break over […]

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 was formed strictly to hammer the American public about moving on to other things.  Where is 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 […]

Supporting Planned Parenthood

By |August 12th, 2015|Health, National, South Carolina, State|Comments Off on Supporting Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood should have been defunded long ago.
But, waiting on Congress to defund Planned Parenthood is a bit of a cop-out and even a bit hypocritical if you, yourself, are personally funding them. Are you?

Let’s say you had an ugly plant in your house that your mother-in-law gifted to you. It’s a really ugly plant and you are certain she knew that when bringing it into your home and now you want nothing more than for that plant to die so you can toss it out in the trash. Even though you have declared this, your spouse continues to water the plant and you keep asking your spouse to stop, even blaming them that the plant still lives. But, you also have two children and any time they ask you for a cup of water you give it to them, knowing full well they are going to go water the plant but you just don’t want to tell your children “no.” So, how exactly are you or your spouse supposed to kill the plant if you keep watering it through your children?

In this same manner, even if Congress removes funding, how many of you are still supporting the existence of Planned Parenthood though someone else?

For quite a few years I participated in Susan G. Komen fundraising events, but in 2010 when I found out they had been responsible for giving as much as $7.5 million to Planned Parenthood I immediately dropped my support and even felt physically ill over the fact that I had […]

#15 Scott Walker

By |July 13th, 2015|National, Politics, Presidential|1 Comment

Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin became the fifteenth candidate to enter the GOP Presidential Primary race today and he made the announcement on social media.
Sponsored by Dark Horse Strategy Group:

I will admit I have some bias as Walker is currently my number one candidate of choice, but I believe his campaign just made a critical error with this summertime announcement.

Anyone who has ever run any campaigns will understand just how “dry” the summer can be. The amount of effort you have to expend to get anyone to pay attention is enormous when you are months out from an election, but the timeframe between Memorial Day and Labor Day is the worst time of all.

Campaign resources are very difficult to come by, as there is simply never enough, especially in a field this crowded… and to spend those resources trying to get the attention of voters while everyone is focused on their children being out of school, vacations, weekend yard work, summer projects, etc, is a fool’s errand. This is why we always recommend candidates suspend their public campaigns during this time frame and focus on strategy, developing materials, crafting messages, shooting videos for later use, recording audio for later use, or about anything and everything other than trying to force the square peg into a round hole in your attempt to get people to pay attention among their summertime distractions.

The Walker camp must have found itself in a difficult position; not ready to announce before Memorial Day and the first presidential debate scheduled for August 6, 2015 (which will obviously happen prior to Labor Day). So can you blame the campaign for making the announcement? Yes… still the wrong thing to do. You MUST […]
