Thanks to an alert TSA agent in St. Louis, Mo., the world is now safe from “Rooster Monkburn,” a cowboy sock monkey whose tiny two-inch-long plastic pistol was confiscated, KING 5 reported Sunday.
According to KING, Phyllis May of Redmond, Wash., is “appalled and shocked and embarrassed all at the same time” about the incident that took place last Wednesday.
Gov.-elect Terry McAuliffe has pledged to run a “transparent” administration. As Inauguration Day approaches, his holdings in an electric car startup and its related companies are less clear.
To avoid potential conflicts of interest, the Democrat pledged to put his investments into a blind trust, or to liquidate them. In the case of stock in Virginia-based GreenTech Automotive, McAuliffe, the electric-car company’s former chairman said through a spokeswoman last month that he will divest his shares.
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
In the Town of Campbell, Wisconsin on Saturday, two Bald Eagles soared over a group of people fighting for their right to simply stand on a public sidewalk and wave a flag after that right was taken away by an unconstitutional town ordinance.
The soaring Eagles inspired the liberty advocates, who came from far and wide to stand in frigid temperatures (below zero wind chill!) to defiantly and peacefully stand against the ordinance, which was clearly targeted toward the group Overpasses for America. Continue reading
Although sales of “Green Eggs and Ham” spiked up after the 16-day government shutdown in October, the numbers weren’t quite as good for the Republican Party at least with the generic congressional ballot polls.
According to a Huffington Post polling average, in mid July the two parties were separated by a tiny two-tenths of a percent, but then came the shutdown and what Charlie Cook, dean of political polling gurus called “one of the most dramatic shifts I’ve ever seen in 40 years of involvement in politics.”
We’ve all heard lots about the Common Core educational standards as they pertain to social studies (“If you ask to speak with the manager of an institution such as a bank, a retail store, or another place of business, how likely is it that you will meet someone of your ethnic background or gender?”), civics (“The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation”), and reading (“Before dawn each morning, Barry [as in Obama] rose – his mother’s voice driving him from dream land. ‘Time for learning English grammar and the Golden Rule. Be honest, be kind, be fair,’ she taught him.”)
Fortunately, the tweet did not come from Obama’s creepy advocacy group, “Organizing for Action.” It did, however come from a brutal regime that is very much overlooked by the mainstream media.
This country experienced massive hyper-inflation after seizing farms belonging to white people, and has just put in place yet another law to seize all white and foreign-owned (particularly Chinese and Nigerian) businesses and give them to hand-picked “indigenous” people (read, “cronies”).
Sometimes no matter how hard America’s freedom fighters try to be the good guys that they really are, certain people manage to find fault, as reported by Fox News on Dec. 4, 2013.
Be Careful Over the Senkaku Islands, Santa…
The good folks at the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) are ensuring both al Qaeda terrorists and possibly the Chinese Air Force steer clear of knocking Santa, his team of reindeer, and sleigh full of presents for the good little girls and boys are smoked out of the Christmas Eve skies.
Tower of Barad Dur (detail, by Paul Lasaine)…ready to fall?
Maybe that’s a tad optimistic. Maybe we’re just starting the battle for Gondor. Or something; you figure out what LOTR analogy you prefer.
Perhaps the moment is the much earlier one (in the trilogy) when the sword of Elendil is re-forged. OK, OK, I’ll stop.
What I’m suggesting is that we’ve reached a turning point. At PJ Media, Roger Simon asks, “What if it’s all true?” He’s referring to the numerous reports of fact, large and small – some well established, some not – that added together mean “President Barack Obama” is a walking lie Continue reading
Would you buy a used car from this man?
In a speech Wednesday, President Obama “declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of ‘all’ of the White House’s efforts ‘for the rest of my presidency.’” But he offered nothing new to advance that goal. Instead, he just peddled stale proposals from the past, such as increased government handouts, that do nothing to expand the opportunity to earn a good living.
For example, he “called for an extension of emergency unemployment benefits,” even though “House Republicans have signaled they likely will not support an extension,” noted The Hill newspaper.
While Virginia boasts the highest percentage of federally funded private-sector jobs in the nation, “real” private enterprise in the commonwealth ranks second to last, a new report says.
Only 70.2% of Virginia jobs are free of government purse strings — coming in just ahead of New Mexico’s 68.1%. The national average is 80.8%.
Among the most memorable statements to issue from the pie-hole of womanchild Nancy Pelosi was her claim in March 2010 that “we will have to pass the bill,” referring to Obamacare, “so that you can find out what’s in it.” What has turned out to be secreted away in that 40,000-page Pandora’s Box has been a source of pain and bemusement ever since.
But there have also been the unintended consequences. One of those is the subject of a piece by Amy Payne at the Heritage Network blog The Foundry:
