Nice bank you got there…
Author Peter Schweizer made the talk-show rounds a few weeks back to tout his new book Extortion, which examines the process by which a U.S. federal government with a huge regulatory portfolio routinely extorts its citizens.
Basically, whatever can be regulated makes a basis for extortion. Holding the whip-hand of the state over someone gives you the power to make threats – Continue reading
Victim of Knockout who survived
Forgive a third post on the idiotic ritual known as Knockout in a single day, but this video, hot off the presses, is the one you have been waiting for. Opposing Views has the skinny on the latest attack, which occurred in a Las Vegas shopping mall over the weekend. It also backfired.
The narrative follows Hoyle initially. A black male runs up behind a black female whose head he comes upside, but the tables are promptly turned on him.
Credit where credit is due. Al Sharpton has spoken out against the “game” of Knockout and has launched a social media campaign urging that “players” find some other outlet for their pent-up hostilities.
According to CBS New York, Sharpton, joined by National Urban League president Marc Morial, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, and Jewish leader Rabbi Marc Schneier, has recorded a series of brief YouTube videos with the message that “The knockout game is not a game.”
The Restaurant Opportunities Center, a union front and ACORN knockoff, is extending its reach by working with other groups to stage protests in a hundred U.S. cities Thursday.
In a push for a higher minimum wage and more union members, ROC is also hiring a national campaign director to shepherd the center’s multimillion-dollar budget, partially plumped by taxpayer dollars.

In a story that is stunning in its depravity, two South Carolina men are in jail after sexually assaulting an 11-year-old Conway girl repeatedly over the space of several years. Some of the details in the story as told by CBS affiliate WBTW are sketchy, such as why authorities were not alerted when the child reported the abuses to her grandmother in early September.
Fox25 out of Boston, Mass. is reporting that the Bridgewater Badgers PeeWee football team is rallying around their diminutive “water coach” Danny Keefe, who found himself the target of cowardly bullies at school. (See video below)
Team Quarterback Tommy Cooney said at an interview with the Boston Fox affiliate that the team was a “Band of Brothers” and when he discovered one of their own was “getting picked on during recess, the team leader on and off the field took charge.
If you’re going to run your presidency by executive fiat rather than by following the rules set down in the Constitution, you had damn well better remember your own power grabs. This lesson sadly was lost on the current leader of the free world, who has found more creative ways to bypass Congress than any than any president before him.
Oh, no, not the dreaded “permanent record.” In England, it’s evidently called “educational record,” but it’s the same deal — a stain on your child’s reputation that will dog him for the rest of his (the school hopes) miserable life.
Daniel Hannan, writing at The Telegraph, shares a letter sent to parents of eight-year-old students at Littleton Green Community School, in South Staffordshire. The document is reproduced below.
This was a big week for lies and nastiness from the mainstream media, political wonks, and progressives. This was the week where Martin Bashir apologized, but Chris Cuomo didn’t think he was that wrong, the tea party killed Kennedy, Oprah called us racist, Bush got blamed for Iran, and the LA Times kind of fibbed about the Obamcare exchanges.
It is understandable that the parents would be upset upon learning their 18-year-old son had been shot multiple times and was in the hospital. But the circumstances under which Adric White bought five rounds makes his parents’ complaint at least questionable.
On Nov. 12, White entered a dollar store wearing a mask. Flashing a gun and demanding money, he ordered one of the employees to open the cash drawer.
In 1936, shortly after his re-election, FDR had a strategy on how to deal with Supreme Court Judges who overturned aspects of his state-sovereignty-robbing New Deal legislation.
He decided to “pack the Supreme Court” with judges who would not consider his unconstitutional laws well, “unconstitutional.”
President Obama’s lapdog media have finally realized that they are back in the USSR. Apparently the board of the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) has had enough of Obama’s own personal White House media stomping all over them, keeping their members from photographing what goes on in the White House and releasing only what Team Obama wants the public to see.
