Sky News, by Staff Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 03 48 2015 09:48:37 GMT A burglary suspect broke down in tears in the dock when the judge recognised him as a former schoolmate and said he had been the "best kid" in school.

Don´t Give Up On America

Creators Syndicate, by David Limbaugh Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 03 20 2015 09:20:25 GMT As I´ve said, I was very alarmed, though not particularly surprised, by the two Supreme Court decisions last week in which the court´s majority blithely bastardized the English language, the Constitution, the rule of law and the very idea of truth in order to further advance the progressive agenda in this nation. But what troubles me more than the court´s betrayal of its duty to safeguard the Constitution and the rule of law is the apparent complacency among the public about these decisions and the radical shifts we are witnessing in our culture. Why do some seem resigned to the transformation of

War on The Truth: It’s a Progressive Disease

Townhall, by Ken Blackwell Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 03 18 2015 09:18:43 GMT Do you feel like America has gone crazy? The Supreme Court’s outrageous decisions in the Obamacare and same'sex marriage cases, in which the Court simply ignored the plain meanings of words and the Constitution, and thumbed its nose at the most basic facts of life, are only the latest examples of our nation turning its back on truth and common sense. Under the influence of “progressive” fanatics, we’re suffering from a progressive pathology that’s tearing our nation apart. In their quest to redefine “normal,” they are tearing up America’s morality by the roots. They’re forcing America to abandon God’s standards of right and

The Vision of the Founding Fathers

National Review Online, by Myron Magnet Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 03 14 2015 09:14:32 GMT Men, not vast, impersonal forces — economic, technological, class struggle, what have you — make history, and they make it out of the ideals that they cherish in their hearts and the ideas they have in their minds. So what were the ideas and ideals that drove the Founding Fathers to take up arms and fashion a new kind of government, one formed by reflection and choice, as Alexander Hamilton said, rather than by accident and force? The worldview out of which America was born centered on three revolutionary ideas, of which the most powerful was a thirst for liberty. For

Reagan Warned about Airbrushing Our History Away

National Review Online, by John Fund Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 03 09 2015 09:09:29 GMT This Fourth of July we will celebrate our independence and freedoms. But are we now more politically correct than free? Last week, Apple Computer removed several Civil War games that uses Confederate flag imagery from its app store. Apple CEO Tim Cook said on Twitter that he wished to honor the Charleston shooting victims “by eradicating racism & removing the symbols & words that feed it.” Recall that Soviet leaders hoped they could drop executed party members down an Orwellian memory hole by airbrushing them out of photographs. Apple relented a few days later and agreed to reinstate some games if they

Gateway Pundit, by Jim Hoft Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 03 02 2015 09:02:15 GMT They lied. They said it was a “protest” not a terrorist attack. Now there’s more proof that they lied. The Obama administration knew al'Qaeda was planning an attack in Benghazi to “kill as many Americans as possible” ten days in advance. Judicial Watch reported: Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD)and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood'linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR), and had

Momma Would Have Been Outraged

American Thinker, by Lloyd Marcus Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 03 49 2015 08:49:38 GMT I confess. I rolled my eyes a bit upon hearing a prominent conservative scolding conservatives for responding in anger to SCOTUS´ unlawful and dictatorial cramming of same'sex marriage down America´s throat. I say praise God. Finally Christians are waking up; expressing righteous anger and outrage over Leftists aggressively targeting and economically slaughtering Christians. In no way am I advocating hate or irresponsible behavior. God commands Christians to act in love. But for crying out loud, love does not mean allowing evil to overtake our homeland. Decades of Christian passivity has allowed the Left (evil) to “own” the minds of millennials. An alarming

Girl Scouts reject anti'transgender gift, then triple the money

Los Angeles Times, by Natalie Schachar Posted By: Ribicon- Fri, 03 46 2015 08:46:32 GMT The moral dilemma began with a $100,000 check to the Girl Scouts of Western Washington — enough to send 500 girls to summer camp, Scout leaders knew. But there was a catch. The anonymous donor stipulated in a letter: "Please guarantee that our gift will not be used to support transgender girls. If you can’t, please return the money." That caveat was a problem. "We´re an organization dedicated to helping all girls become the best version of themselves and we don´t want any barriers in place for their success," said Stefanie Ellis, public relations director of the Western Washington Girl Scouts Council,

Washington Post, by Philip Rucker Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 03 43 2015 08:43:46 GMT BEDFORD, N.H. — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s comeback journey begins here in New Hampshire, so the Republican presidential candidate is paying a visit to the last winner of the state´s first'in'the'nation primary and one of its most famous summertime residents. Mitt Romney is hosting Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, at his waterfront compound on picturesque Lake Winnipesaukee on Friday night, people familiar with the plans said. During the summer, Romney´s sprawling Wolfeboro retreat — which includes a private beach, tennis court and trails — is a playground for the 2012 GOP nominee´s huge family. On Friday night, though, Romney will have

New York Times, by Ashley Parker & Maggie Haberman Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 03 42 2015 08:42:08 GMT Mitt Romney is having a slumber party this weekend at his New Hampshire compound with some very interesting guests: Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, along with their families. The sleepover party at Mr. Romney’s Wolfeboro, N.H., summer vacation spot came about when the 2012 Republican presidential candidate realized that the two current hopefuls would be campaigning in the area during the holiday weekend. “Governor Romney heard that his friends, Governor Christie and Senator Rubio, along with their families, would be in Wolfeboro over the July 4th holiday weekend,” an aide to Mr. Romney said. “He

California regulators approve higher electricity rates for most residents

Lucianne.com - 6 min 28 sec ago
Associated Press, by Staff Posted By: Ribicon- Fri, 03 38 2015 08:38:38 GMT San Francisco — Most residential customers in California will see their electricity bills increase under a new rate structure passed Friday by state regulators. The Public Utilities Commission unanimously approved a plan that raises rates on more efficient users while giving a break to big energy users. It is the first overhaul of the rate system since brownouts roiled California 15 years ago. Legislators at the time expanded rate-paying tiers from two to four and froze lowest-tier rates to protect households from huge swings in energy bills. (Snip) Utilities have long complained that the steeply tiered system means higher-use households

Vietnam Communist Party chief to meet Obama on landmark U.S. trip

Reuters, by Martin Petty & Lesley Wroughton Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 03 37 2015 08:37:38 GMT Vietnam´s Communist Party chief will visit the United States next week in a landmark trip that could prove pivotal in Washington´s bid to bolster its Asian alliances in the back yard of an increasingly assertive China. Nguyen Phu Trong will meet U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House as the former war enemies mark two decades of calibrated engagement since the normalization of ties that have expanded rapidly in the past year. That meeting would skirt protocol because party boss Trong is not part of a government, but a senior state department official said Obama saw the visit as crucial and

Associated Press, by Staff Posted By: Ribicon- Fri, 03 26 2015 08:26:55 GMT Health insurer Aetna Inc. has made a deal to buy competitor Humana Inc. in a $37 billion deal the companies say would create the second'largest managed care company. Adding Humana’s large business in Medicare Advantage, the federal health care program for seniors, would make Humana the nation’s largest Medicare Advantage provider. The purchase price includes a combination of cash and stock worth about $230 per share. (Snip) Analysts say the health care overhaul has pushed the insurers to consolidate, and a big deal has been expected for weeks. A bigger insurer can gain more leverage and negotiating power

Oregon Issues Gag Order for Bakers Who Refused to Make Gay Wedding Cake

Weekly Standard, by Mark Hemingway Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 03 24 2015 08:24:44 GMT In April, an administrative judge with the Oregon Department of Labor ordered Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of the now shuttered bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa, to pay a fine of $135,000 for refusing to bake a cake for a lesbian couple´s wedding. While there´s a case the couple violated the state´s public accommodation laws, there´s little doubt that the fine was excessive and the reasoning for it specious. (For more on the plight of Kleins, see THE WEEKLY STANDARD editorial, "Bake Me a Cake '' or Else.") Despite losing their business and facing a hefty fine they can´t afford,
