Happy July 4th 2015 ~ Happy Independence!

The Declaration of Independence In Congress, July 4, 1776

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain Inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

We owe the generation that gave us the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution.

Kim Jong Un Celebrates Grand Opening of New Pyongyang Airport – Then Quickly Executes Designer

Kim Jong Un Celebrates Grand Opening of New Pyongyang Airport – Then Quickly Executes Designer

The new airport, which receives roughly 60 flights a week, did not quite please the young tyrant.
So he quickly executed the airport designer.

Yahoo News UK

Kim smiled as he posed next to chocolate fountains and espresso bars – but in in private was so furious at ‘defects’ that he had the airport’s designer killed.

Executions are common in North Korea, with senior officials being killed for offences as minor as watching South Korean soap operas.

Airport design chief Ma Won Chun disappeared late last year, and is thought to have been executed after Kim voiced his dissatisfaction with the airport, according to The Diplomat.

Chun was executed for ‘for corrupt practices and failure to follow orders.’

Kim Jong Un issued a statement saying, ‘Defects were manifested in the last phase of the construction of the Terminal 2 because the designers failed to bear in mind the party’s idea of architectural beauty that is the life and soul and core in architecture to preserve the character and national identity.

This is so disgusting and shameful. Let's even give them the excuse they were NOT taught this at school, since so many schools do not teach anymore they just push cross dressing and dress as a Muslim day. I still have to ask why in the hell weren't these idiots even curious to find out on there own when year after year they celebrate a holiday not knowing what it is about or why we celebrate. But I bet they can spend their time in Google looking up their favorite rapper.

Obama Blocks Attempts By Arab Allies To Arm Kurds With Heavy Weapons In Fight Against Islamic State

Obama Blocks Attempts By Arab Allies To Arm Kurds With Heavy Weapons In Fight Against Islamic State

US blocks attempts by Arab allies to fly heavy weapons directly to Kurds to fight Islamic State
Middle East allies accuse Barack Obama and David Cameron of failing to show strategic leadership in fight against Islamic State

The United States has blocked attempts by its Middle East allies to fly heavy weapons directly to the Kurds fighting Islamic State jihadists in Iraq.

Some of America’s closest allies say President Barack Obama and other Western leaders, including David Cameron, are failing to show strategic leadership over the world’s gravest security crisis for decades.

They now say they are willing to “go it alone” in supplying heavy weapons to the Kurds, even if means defying the Iraqi authorities and their American backers, who demand all weapons be channelled through Baghdad.

High level officials from Gulf and other states have told this newspaper that all attempts to persuade Mr Obama of the need to arm the Kurds directly as part of more vigorous plans to take on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) have failed. The Senate voted down one attempt by supporters of the Kurdish cause last month.

The officials say they are looking at new ways to take the fight to Isil without seeking US approval.

“If the Americans and the West are not prepared to do anything serious about defeating Isil, then we will have to find new ways of dealing with the threat,” said a senior Arab government official. “With Isil making ground all the time we simply cannot afford to wait for Washington to wake up to the enormity of the threat we face.”

The Peshmerga have been successfully fighting Isil, driving them back from the gates of Erbil and, with the support of Kurds from neighbouring Syria, re-establishing control over parts of Iraq’s north-west.

But they are doing so with a makeshift armoury. Millions of pounds-worth of weapons have been bought by a number of European countries to arm the Kurds, but American commanders, who are overseeing all military operations against Isil, are blocking the arms transfers.

One of the core complaints of the Kurds is that the Iraqi army has abandoned so many weapons in the face of Isil attack, the Peshmerga are fighting modern American weaponry with out-of-date Soviet equipment.

Non-Western Countries Fed Up With Gay Agenda

Non-Western Countries Fed Up With Gay Agenda

Non-Western countries are getting fed up with the spread of the gay agenda in their countries. This has led one Russian lawmaker to promise that he will have the rainbow flag banned from his country after seeing it plastered all over social media.

Following the U.S. Supreme Court's legalization of so-called gay marriage, he says, "[T]he United States must have gone completely mad and now its gay delirium is threatening the entire civilized world."

"Billions of U.S. dollars will flood into gay propaganda all over the world, creating the grounds for 'rainbow revolutions,'" he warned.

Turkish authorities are apparently no more tolerant of their nation's values being challenged with attempts at subversion, either. On Sunday, a gay pride rally of around 100–200 people started in Istanbul.

It did not last long.

The city's police showed up in no time, prepared to break up the event. Employing pepper spray, rubber bullets and a water cannon, they managed to disperse the hundreds of activists.

Wild Thing's comment...........

What a coincidence. I am fed up with it too.

Soros is behind a lot of the gay movement. Its despicable.

Obama defies federal judge, fails to rescind wrongly issued amnesties

Obama defies federal judge, fails to rescind wrongly issued amnesties

Washington Times

The Obama administration still hasn’t fully rescinded the 2,000 three-year amnesties it wrongly issued four months ago in violation of a court order, government lawyers recently admitted in court, spurring a stern response from the judge who said the matter must be cleaned up by the end of July — or else.

It’s the latest black eye for President Obama’s amnesty policy and the immigration agency charged with carrying it out. The agency bungled the rollout, issuing three-year amnesties even while assuring the judge it had stopped all action hours after a Feb. 16 injunction.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the agency responsible for overseeing the amnesty, said it’s trying to round up all of the permits, sending out two-year amnesties and pleading with the illegal immigrants to return the three-year cards.

But they are having trouble getting some of the lucky recipients to send them back.

“USCIS is carefully tracking the returns of the three-year EAD cards, and many have been returned within weeks,” the agency said in a statement to The Washington Times. “USCIS continues to take steps to collect the remaining three-year EAD cards.”

The agency didn’t answer specific questions about how many remain outstanding, nor about what methods will be used to claw back the ones that folks refuse to return.

The three-year deportation amnesty was part of Mr. Obama’s November 2014 announcement when he proposed granting a three-year tentative deportation amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. It was to be a massive expansion, in both eligibility and duration, of his 2012 amnesty, which granted two-year amnesty to so-called Dreamers.

Judge Andrew S. Hanen blocked the expansion in February, issuing an injunction that remains in place even as the administration appeals it to a higher court. The next hearing on that appeal is due July 10.

But Judge Hanen was shocked to learn that USCIS issued the 2,000 three-year amnesties even after he’d issued his injunction.

“I expect you to resolve the 2,000; I’m shocked that you haven’t,” Judge Hanen told the Justice Department at a hearing last week, according to the San Antonio Express-News. “If they’re not resolved by July 31, I’m going to have to figure out what action to take.”

Homeland Security says it’s changed the duration of the work permits from three years to two years in its computer systems, but getting the cards returned from the illegal immigrants themselves is tougher.

Wild Thing's comment..............

I hope Judge Hanen does something more than just be shocked. Hope his action has traction.But I am not holding my breath.

Michelle Obama Now Requires 26 Servants

Michelle Obama Now Requires 26 Servants

“In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much,” she said. “See, that’s why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service,”— Michelle Obama.

Michelle Obama, as we reported on July 7, is not served by twenty-two attendants who stand by to cater to her every whim.

She is served by twenty-six attendants, including a hair dresser and make-up artist.

The annual cost to taxpayers for such unprecedented attention is approximately $1,750,000 without taking into account the expense of the lavish benefit packages afforded to every attendant.

Little did American voters realize the call for “change” would result in the establishment of an Obama oligarchy.

The discovery of the additional attendants was made by D’Angelo Gore of and by calls to Katie McCormick Lelyyeld, Michelle Obama’s press secretary.

Mr. Gore launched his investigation of the First Lady’s staff in the wake of an article that appeared on and Canada Free Press on July 7.

The article, which became a chain letter viewed by millions of Americans, reported that Michelle Obama requires more than twenty attendants - - more than any First Lady in U.S. History. It provided the following list of White House staff members assigned to the First Lady:

$172,2000 - Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)
$140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)
$113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary)
$102,000 - Johnston, Camille Y. (Special Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the First Lady)
$102,000 - Winter, Melissa E. (Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
$90,000 - Medina, David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
$84,000 - Lelyveld, Catherine M. (Director and Press Secretary to the First Lady)
$75,000 - Starkey, Frances M. (Director of Scheduling and Advance for the First Lady)
$70,000 - Sanders, Trooper (Deputy Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady)
$65,000 - Burnough, Erinn J. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)
$65,000 - Reinstein, Joseph B. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)
$62,000 - Goodman, Jennifer R. (Deputy Director of Scheduling and Events Coordinator For The First Lady)
$60,000 - Fitts, Alan O. (Deputy Director of Advance and Trip Director for the First Lady)
$60,000 - Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady)
$52,500 - Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Associate Director and Deputy Press Secretary To The First Lady)
$50,000 - Jarvis, Kristen E. (Special Assistant for Scheduling and Traveling Aide To The First Lady)
$45,000 - Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of Correspondence For The First Lady)
$45,000 - Tubman, Samantha (Deputy Associate Director, Social Office)
$40,000 - Boswell, Joseph J. (Executive Assistant to the Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
$36,000 - Armbruster, Sally M. (Staff Assistant to the Social Secretary)
$36,000 - Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)
$36,000 - Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of Correspondence for the First Lady)

Readers throughout the country expressed outrage that Mrs. Obama would hire an unprecedented number of staffers in the midst of the Great Recession.

Laura Bush had 15 and MIchelle has 26 servants. And there are liberals out there who think she needs a salary, too.

9-year-old boy chases down cops to give them this

9-year-old boy chases down cops to give them this

USA Today

SLIDELL, La. – Nine-year-old Jayden Witsell is an aspiring law enforcement officer. But he’s got a little something extra with his uniform that he’s made his mission to share with real law enforcement officers.

“It’s a St. Michael’s coin,” Witsell told an officer. “If you keep it in your pocket, or in your unit, it will keep you safe everywhere you go.”

A little more than a month ago, Jayden and his mom started riding around with envelopes that say “Police Lives Matter.” In them, are cards with a hand-written ‘thank you,’ plus the coin. The goal is to give them to any officer, deputy or trooper they spot.

“He just come to me and said, ‘Mom there’s too many bad things going on in the world. People just don’t have respect for law enforcement officers and I want to do something nice for all the police officers,” said his mother Angelique Witsell.

Jayden said, “To me, police lives just matter.”

Watch the video above to see Jayden meet the men he respects so highly.

On June 11th, Witsell pulled over Slidell, Louisiana, Police Officer Joe McMahan.

“I read the card and it really got to my heart,” he said.

Later, the officer regretted not getting a picture. So he turned to Facebook to help find Jayden. A day later, the two took a selfie.

“When you did something like that, you became my hero,” McMahan told Jayden.

Now, the Witsells are hoping the rest of the community catches on.

“I hope that a lot because these officers need more respect,” said Jayden.

Witsell says he’d like to work for the DEA or the FBI when he grows up, but might also want to become a state trooper too.

Just What Obama Wanted : NO INSPECTIONS of Iranian Nuke Facilities,Iran Has The Upper Hand

NO INSPECTIONS of Iranian Nuke Facilities.....Iran Has The Upper Hand

Israel National News

The P5+1 countries led by the United States under Barack Obama have caved in to Iranian demands and will not insist on inspections of nuclear installations as part of a deal on Iran;s nuclear weapons program, Channel 1 reported Sunday.

The channel’s Arab affairs correspondent reported that the June 30 – Tuesday night – deadline for the talks has been set back to an unspecified date but that the negotiations are good natured and the feeling is that the deal is nearly done.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was expected to fly to Tehran Sunday night for consultations on a final bargaining position.

Zarif’s departure followed a weekend of talks with foreign ministers from the UK, France, Germany and Russia who joined the talks over the weekend before returning to their capitals. The lead western negotiator, the US secretary of state, John Kerry, is expected to remain in Europe to await Zarif’s return.

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said Sunday that the United States has lost its edge going into the final days of a nuclear negotiation with Iran.

“I would actually fear that the Iranians have the upper hand right now,” Hayden said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I actually fear we have painted ourselves into a corner where we believe that any deal is better than no deal at the present time.”

Hayden said the framework of the deal doesn’t go far enough in preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear arsenal in the future.

On Sunday, U.S. officials confirmed to Fox News that world powers meeting in Vienna to hammer out the nuclear deal will miss their June 30 deadline.

Wild Thing's comment...........

Reagan walked away from Gorbachev at Reykjavik with no deal rather than accept a bad deal.

In the battle between good and evil, Obama is on Iran’s side. He wants to see Israel nuked.Plus putting the USA in danger. This was the original intention. It is no accident.

Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals

Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals

Northern Colorado Gazette

Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.

Critics of the homosexual lifestyle have long claimed that once it became acceptable to identify homosexuality as simply an “alternative lifestyle” or sexual orientation, logically nothing would be off limits. “Gay” advocates have taken offense at such a position insisting this would never happen.

...further down in the write up is this..........

Linda Harvey, of Mission America, said the push for pedophiles to have equal rights will become more and more common as LGBT groups continue to assert themselves. “It’s all part of a plan to introduce sex to children at younger and younger ages; to convince them that normal friendship is actually a sexual attraction.”

Wild Thing's comment...........

There is so much evil more then ever and it keeps getting it's way in our land. Pray for our country and for the children. God help us.

Vietnam Veteran's remains return to NC

Vietnam Veteran's remains return to NC

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Vietnam War veteran missing in action for close to 50 years is back on U.S. soil. The remains of Chief Master Sergeant Edwin E. Morgan Sr. landed in Charlotte Thursday afternoon just after noon.

"This is a man who at 17 years old joined the service, actually he started in the Navy, then he went to the Army and then to the Air Force," said Patriot Guard C.W. Smith.

Edwin Morgan had been Missing In Action for 49 years.

"In 1966 his plane went down," Smith said.

Today he is home. The organization "Rolling Thunder Washington, D.C." says Morgan's remains had been identified through a match in dental records and landed at Charlotte Douglas Airport. The remains were carried from the plane and put into the hearse. A massive procession of over 100 motorcycles escorted him 47 miles to Rockwell in Rowan County, where he'll be buried next to his wife.

"This is a man who wrote his name on a blank check," Smith said. "It was filled out to pay to the order of the United States of America. Unfortunately on the amount paid was the ultimate sacrifice of his life."

Morgan was 38 years old at the time in 1966, but through all these years he was never forgotten.

"You know we were going to be here today either way to make sure we get him home," Smith said. "And it's just a fantastic feeling."

A visitation for Morgan will be held tomorrow and funeral services are scheduled for Saturday morning. The Patriot Guard says there are over 1600 American soldiers that are still unaccounted for from the Vietnam War.

NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY Calls For Mass Killing Of White People With Bombs

NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY Calls For Mass Killing Of White People With Bombs

A radical leader of an anti-American, racist, paramilitary organization told an enthusiastic crowd that they can “strap up” with weapons “for only a couple of hundred dollars” and received applause when she said she planned to establish a Charleston chapter of the group.

The remarks—delivered about a block from the church where white racist Dylann Roof allegedly murdered nine black churchgoers—came at the same Tuesday night New Black Panther Party (NBPP) rally where one speaker declared “this is war” and where NBPP leader Malik Zulu Shabazz told the all-black audience of about 250 that “we need to complete” the work of a former slave who wanted to kill as many white people as possible in a revolt.

Muslim Obama Puts US soldiers on drinking and eating restrictions in Southeast Asia during Ramadan

US soldiers on drinking and eating restrictions in Southeast Asia during Ramadan

A top commander in southwest Asia reminded U.S military personnel stationed in Muslim countries in the Middle East of the restrictions placed on them during Ramadan. According to a report by the U.S. Air Forces Central Command Public Affairs, Brig. Gen. John Quintas, 380th Air Expeditionary Wing commander in Southwest Asia, said that the U.S. is “committed to the concepts of tolerance, freedom and diversity.” But he added that soldiers should “become more informed and appreciative of the traditions and history of the people in this region of the world… [R]emember we are guests here and that the host nation is our shoulder-to-shoulder, brothers and sisters in arms, risking their lives for our common cause to defeat terrorism.”

During the 30-day religious celebration of Ramadan, even non-Muslims are expected to obey local laws regarding eating, drinking, and using tobacco in public. Violators can be fined up to $685 or receive two months in jail. A spokesperson for United States Central Command [CENTCOM] said that “we are not aware of any specific instances of anyone being arrested” for such violations.'''

Newspaper editorial page bans op-eds opposing gay marriage

Newspaper editorial page bans op-eds opposing gay marriage

The editorial board of PennLive/The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa. is taking a hardcore stance against those who disagree with the Supreme Court ruling to legalize gay marriage.

“As a result of Friday’s ruling, PennLive/The Patriot-News will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage,” they declared.

After receiving strong pushback, the newspaper’s editorial board, which is overseen by Editorial Page Editor John Micek, quickly revised its policy. Freedom of speech will be allowed — but only for a “limited” period of time.

Micek explained on Twitter: “Clarification: We will not foreclose discussion of the high court’s decision, but arguments that gay marriage is wrong/unnatural are out.”

Before that, there was this: “From the edit: ‘PL/PN will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage.’ …This is not hard: We would not print racist, sexist or anti-Semitc letters. To that, we add homophobic ones. Pretty simple.”

The notice at the top of the editorial page of the website now reads: “12:58 p.m. This post has been updated to further elaborate PennLive’s policy for accepting letters and op-Eds on same-sex marriage.”

The editorial heavily praised the Supreme Court ruling, saying, “[Justice Anthony] Kennedy nailed it: There are no rights more fundamental than due process and equal treatment under the law.”

Rush: 'Words, And Therefore Laws, Have No Meaning'

Rush: 'Words, And Therefore Laws, Have No Meaning'

Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh argued that the Supreme Court’s ruling in King v. Burwell was a ruling that “words, and therefore laws, have no meaning” on Thursday.

“I mean, the chief justice took it upon himself to interpret the law again. He took it upon himself to say, ‘This is not what they meant. What they wrote, they didn’t mean this. What they meant by the state was the full-fledged federal government. Because our job here is not to disrupt things, and that would be a huge disruption.’ … The chief justice, however, taking it upon himself to interpret this law politically, not reviewing it judicially. That equals the full politicization of the court.”

Later he said, “So, we’ve got the government that the left has always wanted. We’ve got an authoritarian megalomaniac ruling like a monarch. The opposition of Republicans more often than not just bend over. And according to the highest court in the land, words, and therefore laws, have no meaning. What does that mean for the rule of law? If the law doesn’t mean anything other than what the highest judge ruling on it says it means, then what is it worth?”

Rush continued further on, “So, here’s what the left completely understands. They understand completely the optics of succeeding and getting something to become part of society and to having it accepted. And that happens to be socialism’s great appeal. And then once something is in place, such as Obamacare, to use that as an example here, once it’s in place, people generally don’t complain. They don’t know how to. They don’t care. That’s why not a single entitlement — well, Medicare — only one entitlement has ever been repealed. That was another thing arguing against the Supreme Court striking down Obamacare, it just doesn’t happen. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, nothing, except one tiny part of Medicare back in the eighties has ever been repealed. And so, what that means is that the entire conservative movement becomes, tell me if I’m wrong about this, the conservative movement then becomes an entity which focuses on making social programs more efficient rather than debating whether or not we should have them.”

Wild Thing's comment.............

Rush also said, that John Roberts was laughing at the dissent comments that Scalia made. Roberts is a horrible person. Rush comments too how awesome the notes from Scalia were on this about his dissent.

Good I hope it passes! House bill would force the Supreme Court to enroll in ObamaCare

House bill would force the Supreme Court to enroll in ObamaCare

The Hill

A House Republican on Thursday proposed forcing the Supreme Court justices and their staff to enroll in ObamaCare.

Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) said that his SCOTUScare Act would make all nine justices and their employees join the national healthcare law’s exchanges.

“As the Supreme Court continues to ignore the letter of the law, it’s important that these six individuals understand the full impact of their decisions on the American people,” he said.

“That’s why I introduced the SCOTUScare Act to require the Supreme Court and all of its employees to sign up for ObamaCare,” Babin said.

Babin’s potential legislation would only let the federal government provide healthcare to the Supreme Court and its staff via ObamaCare exchanges.

“By eliminating their exemption from ObamaCare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with,” he added.

His move follows the Supreme Court’s ruling Thursday morning that upheld the subsidies under ObamaCare that are provided by the government to offset the cost of buying insurance.

The 6-3 decision, authored by Chief Justice John Roberts, said consumers purchasing health insurance from the federal exchange in roughly 34 states could continue to do so.

The ruling in King v. Burwell has spurred anger on the right, with conservatives questioning the logic of the decision.

“They deserve an Olympic medal for the legal gymnastics,” Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa.), the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee, told The Hill.

Roberts argued in his decision that eliminating subsidies would have pulled state healthcare markets into a death spiral. That chain of effects, he added, was not consistent with ObamaCare’s intent.

“The argument that the phrase ‘established by the State’ would be superfluous if Congress meant to extend tax credits to both State and Federal Exchanges is unpersuasive,” he wrote.

Justice Antonin Scalia strongly criticized that interpretation in his dissent.

“We should start by calling this law SCOTUScare,” he wrote, lambasting Roberts for the ObamaCare decision in 2012 declaring the law’s mandate that people buy insurance constitutional.

President Obama celebrated the Supreme Court’s ruling in a statement from the Rose Garden.

“After multiple challenges before the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act is here to stay,” he said.

Corrupt Hillary Takes Private Jet To Give Speech On ‘Social Inequality’

Hillary Takes Private Jet To Give Speech On ‘Social Inequality’

Hillary Clinton gave a speech Tuesday near Ferguson, Missouri, site of anti-police riots inspired by the controversial shooting death of Michael Brown. Clinton’s speech at Christ the King United Methodist Church of Christ in the nearby town of Florissant focused on issues of racial and social inequality. “Despite our best efforts and our highest hopes, America’s long struggle with race is far from finished,” she said. “We can’t hide from hard truths about race and justice. We have to name them, own them and change them.”

Naturally, she arrived in a private jet. After the speech, Clinton was whisked away to a $2,700-per-person fundraiser hosted by a Budweiser heiress.

Marxist in the majority on court! Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare on 6-3 Vote

Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare on 6-3 Vote

FOX News

Chief Justice John Roberts again votes with the libs on the court

In the second major court win for President Obama on his signature health care law, the Supreme Court on Thursday upheld ObamaCare subsidies in states that did not set up their own health care exchanges.

The decision was 6-3.

A ruling against the administration would have threatened subsidies in nearly three-dozen states. For months, though, the administration said it had no back-up plans, confident the Supreme Court would rule in its favor.

The Supreme Court previously upheld the law's individual mandate in 2012, in a 5-4 decision.

This time, the justices said the subsidies that 8.7 million people currently receive to make insurance affordable do not depend on where they live, under the 2010 health care law.

It is soooooooooo horrible to see this happen, to we the people and to our country.

U.S. Army defends past use of Confederate soldiers in base names

Stars and Stripes

The Army on Wednesday defended its past practice of naming forts and posts after Confederate Army generals, saying they memorialize historic figures, “not causes or ideologies.”

The issue arose following the deadly church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, and amid debate over Confederate flags and other symbols of the Confederacy. Numerous Army posts in the South are named for Confederate soldiers.

The Army’s top spokesman, Brig. Gen. Malcolm B. Frost, issued a brief statement in the aftermath of questions about whether the military ought to consider changing the name of bases like Fort Bragg, North Carolina, which is named after the man who led the Confederate Army of Tennessee, Gen. Braxton Bragg.

“Every Army installation is named for a soldier who holds a place in our military history,” Frost said. “Accordingly, these historic names represent individuals, not causes or ideologies. It should be noted that the naming occurred in the spirit of reconciliation, not division.”

According to the Army’s Center of Military History, the earliest official policy on the naming of posts and forts is found in War Department General Order Number 11, dated Feb. 8, 1832. It said, “All new posts which may be hereafter established, will receive their names from the War Department, and be announced in General Orders from the Headquarters of the Army.”

In the World War II era of 1939-1946, almost all military installations designated as forts or camps were named after distinguished military individuals, including veterans of the Confederate Army, according to the Center for Military History.

Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said Wednesday that he is unaware of any discussion within the Defense Department about changing the names of bases that memorialize Confederate soldiers. He said it was a matter for the individual services, not the Defense Department.

Wild Thing's comment................

Hitler wanted to erase and change history by burning books. ...ISIS is destroying archaeological sites and burning Christian churches, books and slaughtering people. ...
The progressives under the helm of Muslim Obama are now demanding that we silence history.

The Army shouldn't be defending anything, They should tell the complainers to F off.

Confederate Frenzy: NY Film Critic Calls for Banning of ‘Gone With the Wind’

Confederate Frenzy: NY Film Critic Calls for Banning of ‘Gone With the Wind’

written by John Nolte at Breitbart

Book burning.

Movie banning.





When it comes to the Left, it is always only a matter of time before they show their fascist colors. We’re seeing it all over the place in a media frenzy that began with a cause I agree with (removing Confederate Flags from state capitols) into what is now a full-blown mob waging a bullying witch hunt to completely memory-hole the flag.

Wednesday, the thing that you believe could never happen, did happen: a New York film critic has called for the banning of The Greatest Movie Ever Made.

In just three days, the left’s mob mentality took us from removing the Rebel Flag from a state capitol to banning “Gone with the Wind.”

Lou Lumenick in today’s New York Post:

If the Confederate flag is finally going to be consigned to museums as an ugly symbol of racism, what about the beloved film offering the most iconic glimpse of that flag in American culture?

I’m talking, of course, about “Gone with the Wind[.]’’ …

But what does it say about us as a nation if we continue to embrace a movie that, in the final analysis, stands for many of the same things as the Confederate flag that flutters so dramatically over the dead and wounded soldiers at the Atlanta train station just before the “GWTW’’ intermission?

Warner Bros. just stopped licensing another of pop culture’s most visible uses of the Confederate flag — toy replicas of the General Lee, an orange Dodge Charger from “The Dukes of Hazzard’’ — as retailers like Amazon and Walmart have finally backed away from selling merchandise with that racist symbol.

That studio sent “Gone with the Wind’’ back into theaters for its 75th anniversary in partnership with its sister company Turner Classic Movies in 2014, but I have a feeling the movie’s days as a cash cow are numbered. It’s showing on July 4 at the Museum of Modern Art as part of the museum’s salute to the 100th anniversary of Technicolor — and maybe that’s where this much-loved but undeniably racist artifact really belongs.

Lumenick isn’t beating around the bush. He’s serious about calling on Warner Bros. to smother the movie outside of museum screening — a self-imposed ban, but a ban nonetheless.

This is akin to book burning. Granted, Lumenick’s not suggesting government agents kick in your door, search your house, and burn your copy “Gone With the Wind” (maybe in another 3 days). Nevertheless, he is talking about removing from the marketplace one of the most treasured pieces of cinematic art the world has ever seen.

Lumenick is also assuming the classic bigoted role of the fascist white liberal patronizing black America.

Did Lumenick ask black America’s opinion before calling for “Gone With the Wind” to be banned?

Apparently not, because in a recent poll, a whopping 73% of black Americans rated “Gone With the Wind” as “one of the best” or a “good/very good” movie.

That doesn’t matter, though. After all, Gaia created white leftists to tell those “ignorant black folk” what’s best for them.

And let’s not forget that Hattie McDaniel won a well-deserved and historic Oscar for “Gone With the Wind,” the first black actor to do so. Are we going to memory-hole her magnificent achievement?

Art is not a flag to be moved.

Art is not a symbol to be nudged.

Art is art is art is art.

Wild Thing's comment..............

I worry that our beautiful U.S. flag is next. This is all very concerning how quickly things change now under Obama and his ilk having more power then ever before.

Those leftists are freaking crazy. Hopefully more than enough people are tired of the lefts' evil, Socialist crap, and will stand up to them.

A Fort Smith School Board committee Bans Rebel Mascot And School Band From Playing Official Song “Dixie” In Response To Charleston Shooting

A Fort Smith School Board committee Bans Rebel Mascot And School Band From Playing Official Song “Dixie” In Response To Charleston Shooting

A Fort Smith School Board committee passed a motion Tuesday (June 23) to ban the “Dixie” song during the 2015-2016 school year and to replace the rebel mascot for the 2016-2017 school year.

The motion passed five to zero. Susan McFerran, a member of the school board, said the decision comes after the mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina and a recent class reunion.

“There was a 30 year class reunion this weekend,” she said. “It came to our attention that the public has been pretty upset about the Confederate flag, which has already been removed, the rebel mascot [and] the playing of the ‘Dixie.’”

Caleb Coleman just graduated from Southside and is against the board’s decision.

“It will be kind of different, almost like a different school I think,” he said. “All the different people that have gone through this school with athletics and different things, it will almost be like a school they didn’t play for really.”

Kelly Wingfield graduated from Southside in 1981. She remembers when the school flew the Confederate flag on campus.

“I feel like maybe it is time to get rid of it,” Wingfield said. “[For] some people it does bring bad memories of a bad time in our history. I think it would be just probably better.”

The board said they will turn to students for help in picking a new mascot and song.

“We said it will be kind of fun to have a contest to pick the new songs,” McFerran said.

The school will have to make changes to some of its uniforms.

“We’ve got the orchestra, the band, Dixie bells, the cheerleaders, football team, basketball team, softball team, soccer tennis golf,” McFerran said.

Wild Thing's comment.......

This is like an avalanche, it has only been a few days and it is already taking over our country. VERY concerning and scary to me. I am soooooo afraid they will also go after our American Flag.

Kids Selling Salt And Pepper In School Hallways To Spice Up Michelle Obama's Horrible Lunch Program

Kids Selling Salt And Pepper In School Hallways To Spice Up Michelle Obama's Horrible Lunch Program

Washington Examiner

School lunches are so bland that kids are selling salt and pepper to spice them up, a school official told lawmakers Wednesday.

This “contraband economy” is result of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act Of 2010, said John Payne, a school board president in Indiana.

The 2010 bill directed the U.S. Department of Agriculture to create national standards for food served and sold in schools, which included limits on what could be served and how much, as well as a maximum amount of calories that can be included in school meals.

Payne, president of the Blackford County School Board in Hartford City, Ind., told House lawmakers that students in his school district have been “caught bringing in — and even selling — salt, pepper and sugar in school to add taste to perceived bland and tasteless cafeteria food.”

Payne said the USDA standards are strangling school districts by making them provide food students won’t eat in addition to increasing the cost of lunch for school districts.[…]

Lynn Harvey, of North Carolina’s school nutrition services, testified that participation in school meals has dropped 5 percent in North Carolina under the new restrictions even as enrollment has increased.

Ninety percent of North Carolina school nutrition directors said a requirement that all grains must be whole grain is the main culprit, Harvey said.

For example, Harvey said that since breakfast biscuits were switched to whole grain, participation in breakfast has dropped in 60 percent of her state’s school districts.

“No amount of training or technical assistance for schools will change students’ distaste for foods that look and taste unappealing to them,” she said.

Another problem is that a provision in the 2010 bill requiring states to review school meals programs every three years is creating an unnecessary burden, South Dakota Secretary of Education Melody Schopp testified.

Schopp said the excess regulation is creating more paperwork and less benefit to needy, hungry children.

Wild Thing's comment...............

Michelle should mind her own freaking business. She and Barack don't have their daughters going to these schools and being forced to eat her horrible food.

Ex-Advisers Warn Obama That Iran Nuclear Deal ‘May Fall Short’ of Standards

Ex-Advisers Warn Obama That Iran Nuclear Deal ‘May Fall Short’ of Standards

So five of Obama's own former negotiators worry he's gonna give away the store in Iran talks

Five former members of President Obama’s inner circle of Iran advisers have written an open letter expressing concern that a pending accord to stem Iran’s nuclear program “may fall short of meeting the administration’s own standard of a ‘good’ agreement” and laying out a series of minimum requirements that Iran must agree to in coming days for them to support a final deal.

Several of the senior officials said the letter was prompted by concern that Mr. Obama’s negotiators were headed toward concessions that would weaken international inspection of Iran’s facilities, back away from forcing Tehran to reveal its suspected past work on weapons, and allow Iranian research and development that would put it on a course to resuming intensive production of nuclear fuel as soon as the accord expires.

The public nature of the announcement by some of Mr. Obama’s best-known former advisers, all of whom had central roles in the diplomatic, intelligence and military efforts to counter Iran’s program, adds to the challenge facing Secretary of State John Kerry as the negotiations head toward a deadline of next Tuesday.

A judgment from Mr. Obama’s own former advisers that the final accord falls short would provide ammunition for Republican critics who have already said they will try to kill it when it is submitted to Congress for review.

But it creates an opportunity for Mr. Obama as well. The letter was also signed by a number of prominent Republicans from President George W. Bush’s administration. A determination by them that the standards set out in the letter have been achieved would undercut the Republican critique.

“Most of us would have preferred a stronger agreement,” the letter begins, going on to assess the proposed accord as useful for delaying Iran’s program, but not a long-term solution to the problem of a nuclear Iran.

“The agreement will not prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapons capability,” it continues. “It will not require the dismantling of Iran’s nuclear enrichment infrastructure. It will however reduce that infrastructure for the next 10 to 15 years. And it will impose a transparency, inspection, and consequences regime with the goal of deterring and dissuading Iran from actually building a nuclear weapon.”

The Socialist Pope Francis Has Been Bashing Capitalism, Gun Owners, Air Conditioning. Michelle Malkin Let's Him Have it!

Holy Hypocrisy and Hot Air

writer Michelle Malkin

Pope Francis once again lectured the world on the evils of capitalism this week.

Apparently, the Socialist pope is unaware of the special technology donated by capitalists that is preserving Vatican treasures.

Unlike Pope Francis, I believe that air-conditioning and the capitalists responsible for the technology are blessings to the world.

Perhaps the head of the Catholic Church, who condemned "the increasing use and power of air-conditioning" last week in a market-bashing encyclical, is unaware of the pioneering private company that has donated its time, energy and innovative heating, ventilating and air-conditioning equipment to the Vatican's most famous edifice for more than a decade.

That's right. While the pontiff sanctimoniously attacks "those who are obsessed with maximizing profits," Carrier Corporation — a $13 billion for-profit company with 43,000 employees worldwide (now a unit of U.S.-based United Technologies Corp.) — ensures that the air in the Vatican's Sistine Chapel stays clean and cool.

Last fall, Carrier unveiled a groundbreaking HVAC system for the Vatican to help preserve Michelangelo's masterpieces against pollution caused by the estimated six million visitors who descend on the Sistine Chapel every year to see its famous frescoes.

As the company described it, their new solution "uses two Carrier AquaForce(r) 30XWV water-cooled chillers with Greenspeed(r) intelligence, each with 580 kilowatts of capacity. It leverages specially designed software and components, as well as patented, energy-saving technologies to maintain optimal climate conditions for the protection of the paintings within the chapel." State-of-the-art intelligent controls "anticipate visitor levels and adjust its performance intuitively." It also "delivers twice the efficiency and three times the capacity of the former system, which was built and installed by Carrier in the early 1990s."

Here's the lesson about air-conditioning capitalists that Pope Francis fails to appreciate: Carrier's technological know-how and breakthroughs didn't just descend from the clouds. As I recount in my latest book, "Who Built That," every perfectly chilled home, office, movie theater, mall, factory, hospital, lab and museum owes its existence to the profit-seeking pioneers of manufactured weather: Willis Carrier and Irvine Lyle.

These early 20th-century inventive giants brought air-conditioning to the market and to the masses. Willis Carrier was the scientist-tinkerpreneur whose prolific stream of experiments and epiphanies, beginning in 1902, fueled historic technological advances in heating, refrigeration and air-conditioning. Irvine Lyle was the mechanical engineer-turned-salesman who imagined countless new commercial applications for Carrier's work — and successfully turned those ideas into a multibillion-dollar business through relentless promotion, pitches, networking, advertising and outreach.

The scientists and their core team begged, borrowed and made stock sales to friends and neighbors. Carrier even enlisted his dentist for cash to get Carrier Engineering Corporation up and running in 1915. Carrier, Lyle and five founding engineers together pitched in $32,600 in start-up funds.

The Carrier capitalists risked it all in defiance of an economic depression and amid the tumult of world war. They couldn't afford their own factory and scrounged for made-to-order parts wherever they could find them. They dug into their own pockets to cover salary shortfalls. The wealth wasn't handed to them. Carrier and Lyle, farm boys who both graduated from Cornell, drove their men hard and themselves harder.

The Carrier team sold its products to businesses, large and small, that spanned the spectrum of human needs and wants. The pope should know that in addition to sparing countless lives from death by heat wave, Carrier designed a special system for Jonas Salk that helped maintain constant temperatures in the vats where Salk's poliovirus strains grew. The Salk vaccine saved thousands of lives and spearheaded the vaccine revolution.

From Hollywood to the pharmaceutical industry to textiles to the retail industry to the military to homeowners, there isn't a sector of the American economy that Carrier and Lyle didn't help transform. Their zealous focus on helping businesses provide better products at cheaper costs resulted in the invaluable byproducts of increased health, comfort and happiness.

While the pope blames commercial enterprises and the "global market economy" for causing "environmental degradation," it is a worldwide commercial enterprise made in America that solved the (SET (ITAL) human-caused degradation of, and environmental damage to, the Vatican's most prized art and assets.

If the pontiff truly believes "excessive consumption" of modern conveniences is causing evil "climate change," will he be shutting down and returning the multimillion-dollar system Carrier generously gifted to the Vatican Museums?

If not, I suggest, with all due respect, that Pope Francis do humanity a favor and refrain from blowing any more hot air unless he's willing to stew in his own.

Wild Thing's comment...........

Awesome response from Michelle. I have been seeing the articles about what the Pope is saying and demanding lately and it is terrible. It sounds more like Obama then anything else.

These last few days he has bashed gun owners and manufacturers and said they are NOT Christians, bashed air conditioning, bashed capitalists etc. He has been busy and not for the good that's for sure. I thought maybe he is senile but I think his socialists roots are what are leading him to these demands of people.
