Even the use of a "Continuing Resolution" in lieu of a regular budget is a failure of executive leadership to find ways to work together. In the past, it has worked in the Presidents favor to pretend he is an outsider in the process and point his finger at those "anarchist/terrorist" Republicans in the House who just fail to act reasonably....By doing it his way... But this time there is a huge elephant in the living room and many folks have started to notice it.
In the wake of the horrific Muslim terror attack in Kenya, the "religion of peace" is starting to get a black eye. But Muslims have no main leader to speak for them and as a result, the ones among them who preach a brand of hatred and violence seem to grab the attention of the media. Alarmingly, it seems that among the Muslim terrorists who attacked the mall, were American Muslims recruited from Minnesota and Maine. Minnesota is known to have a large Muslim Somali community, and they are reportedly recruited to take part in terrorist activity.
"You never saw doctors. You could go to a chemist and even if your throat was cut, he'd give you a cure for it. He'd put a dressing on it. Mr. Mushatt was in Francis Street-he was the masterpiece, for a bad chest, bad back.....from north, south, east and west, people'd come for them. People trusted him as he concocted his own old fashioned medicines in the rear compounding room. His lotions, potions, and tablets were thought to be the purest medicines. People really believed in them, swore by them."
No matter what the motives behind this shooting, whether it is terrorist related, a grievance, or just a mental case on a rampage, this incident shows it is time to stop disarming or making it almost impossible for law abiding citizens to be armed. Most people would think a military installation would be a poor choice for a gunman to find unarmed, defenseless victims. After all most of our military personnel are trained in the use of firearms and are trusted to use those weapons in the defense of our country.
The direct speaking Robert Murray pulled no punches when he addressed the Bluefield Coal show in West Virginia today. Many prominent Americans are now discussing the need to impeach President Obama...maybe you will want to be a part of this effort
National Geographic takes us inside this bizarre world of cult religion to reveal the strange practices that most people would recoil from. "Snake Salvation" Premieres Tuesday, September 10, at 9:00 and 9:30 PM ET/PT... Lets face it, many people are very afraid of snakes because they slither, hiss and can strike you with sharp fangs that deliver lethal poison. To bolster that reputation and fear, snake bites kill at least one hundred thousand people per year and injure perhaps another million.
Americas sense of credibility has been assaulted by almost 5 years of White House underlings telling us not to believe our own lying eyes, but to believe the Obama administration. Stuttering and yammering professional spin doctors pose as White House press spokesmen, never giving a straight answer to questions asked....the list stretches interminably.
In it they warned-unless changes are made, Obamacare will "destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class." If not modified, Obamacare will "destroy the very health and well being of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans." Does "fixing something" mean more special exemption carve outs and subsidies for the special protected classes of politicians and Obama supporters? If Obama tries an end run to make an exception for union members, look for a defection of political support for his party as the 2014 elections loom and public resentment grows.
"In order to break the Democrats' stranglehold on the black vote and free black Americans from the Democrat Party's economic plantation, we must shed the light of truth on the Democrats. We must demonstrate that the Democrat Party policies of socialism and dependency on government handouts offer the pathway to poverty, while Republican Party principles of hard work, personal responsibility, getting a good education and ownership of homes and small businesses offer the pathway to prosperity."
Record numbers of students are taking out record amounts of loans and are now defaulting on those loans, discovering they cannot find jobs in his moribund economy. The colleges themselves are booming with unprecedented amounts of money flowing in, but the graduates are failing...So what's the metric here?
If there is a message to be gotten across to Joe Public it's this: there's no such thing as 'free' solar, wind or any other 'clean energy' source. Someone, somewhere always has to pay for them. And they will always cost far more than hydrocarbons -- don't believe the green hype believe the physics. The bulk of that subsidized social levy is set to continue to be sustained by Joe Public, especially those forced into fuel poverty by costly renewable levies in their domestic bills
As it turned out, Hillary's first speech was designed to inflame paranoia in the black community by criticizing the recent Supreme Court decision that struck down key provisions of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. As if somehow, this decision would open the door for states to take the right to vote away from black voters...As if it is something these states have been licking their chops to do.
Ireland's Bono, the international superstar of music and philanthropy, has always used his status to bring attention to world poverty and illness. But through his experience in bringing aid to those in need, it seems Bono has had an awakening, perhaps Biblical in proportion. Bono, during a speech to students at Georgetown University, declared his altered view on political and economic issues, by saying: ONLY capitalism can end poverty.
Unless "renewable" forms of energy such as wind and solar, achieve significant breakthroughs in technology, they will never be able to compete with clean coal power on a level playing field. Already countries such as Spain and Germany, which heavily invested in renewables, have started to have second thoughts as the bills come due for years of subsidizing these forms of energy.
Perhaps it's time to grab hold of an idea that can completely change the political landscape in our country. It's time to put a new choice on all of the ballots in America. This choice would be the 500 lb gorilla in the living room. The choice is called "NONE OF THE ABOVE". With just the threat of "none of the above" hanging over their heads, political parties would have to be very careful about who they put on the ballot, because we have a new option: A morning after pill for the American voter.
Today traditional Fossil fuels plus nuclear provide over 90% of America's total energy. A clear example of Obama's fecklessness on energy is to stand in front of a group and discuss the benefits of "Green Energy" when America and his administration depend so much on traditional fossil fuels.
But what is particularly galling to many Americans, is President Obama's brushing aside the tragic death and injury of Americans during the attack on our consulate in Benghazi Libya. No, these deaths and injuries are not just a "fake scandal" and cannot be swept under the rug. America wants answers as to why Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith and Ambassador Stevens were killed that night in Benghazi.
Shockingly on the popular Fox news show "The Five," Beckel admitted that well intentioned social welfare programs instigated during the 60's, have created generations of dependent welfare families. The head of household is big daddy government; the real fathers are nowhere to be found.
I also disagree with the US governments estimate that only 11 million illegals are in the US. I think we have 11 million in California alone. The Mexican government as well as the Catholic diocese, both know more about this issue than anyone else... They estimate there are between 30 and 40 million illegals in the US.
The freight train that killed Trayvon Martin that night was the legal systems failure to protect citizens from crime. George Zimmerman and the Twin Lakes community were only the caboose in that long train of events.
Celebrities like the Lohans can be ridiculed for their public meltdowns and failures, but more than likely if they weren't under the influence of their addictions to drugs and alcohol, none of that behavior would have occurred. Very few addicts get the national exposure the Lohans attract and perhaps through their public ordeals, there can be some triumphs that can help lead others to a new way of living.
The miracles in San Francisco that prevented far more death, were absent on the mean streets of Chicago and there are no breathless, glamorized national talking heads reporting on it. Yes the crash of the jet in San Francisco was a tragedy, but in the whole scheme of things, it was an extremely rare occurrence and the loss of life miniscule in comparison to the daily violent meat grinder of violence that the citizens of Chicago must suffer with. Over the 4th of July holiday, 72 American citizens were shot and 12 of them were killed in one violent city in America: Chicago
With a solemn speech and flanked by scores of leaders, Egypt's top General announced the military has peacefully removed President Morsi from power. The announcement was greeted by thunderous cheers from millions in the streets of Egyptians major cities. Citizens were proclaiming they do not want sharia law and a Muslim religious state shoved down their throat.... but they do want a democratically elected secular government. Many felt Morsi was chipping away at democratic freedoms and was steering Egypt towards a religious state.
Although Baldwin has repeatedly insulted America with his language throughout his career....He seems to have a "get out of jail free" card that lets him slip away unscathed. If past performance is any predictor of the future, Alec Baldwin will skate because he is a lefty. But in a flagrant show of the brutal double standard that is the lefts guiding star, another celebrity is now being publicly crucified for one word she said over 30 years ago. Since Paula Deen is not politically correct and not a member of the Hollywood "Limousine Liberal" class, a firestorm of outrage erupted in all corners of the media.
As America gets assaulted with one scandal after another surrounding the Obama administration, there is speculation more is to come....And that speculation adds fuel to a bonfire of suspicion that this administration would stop at nothing to win its' re-election. A characteristic lack of curiosity by the main stream media into any malfeasance by the Obama administration helped the President. This lack of curiosity helped quell outrage by the American public just prior to the election, as our Libyan Ambassador was killed.
One of the highest profile lawyers who has preyed on the healthcare industry in the past, is Democrat Senator and presidential contender John Edwards. Yesterday Edwards announced he is opening up his law practice to resume his lucrative career of suing healthcare, after taking a hiatus for his political ambitions.
Not only were these "green companies" the recipients of outright taxpayer loans which many will never repay, they were also on the receiving end of tax breaks and subsidies designed to give them an edge. Many European countries have embraced alternative energy at the behest of their left leaning governments and the citizens are now suffering as a result. Some households in the UK have to make a choice between buying food or paying their electric bill.
Americas press is under an insidious assault by the government using the guise of protecting "national security." Shocking revelations of seizing phone records and other privileged communications of the Associated Press by Eric holders Justice Department, sparked alarm last week by even stalwart Democrats like Congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York, who said: "I am quite concerned by the appearance of overreach by the Justice Department in its pursuit of records from the Associated Press." In a key part of his statement he finished up with: We must also examine the use of the Espionage Act to criminalize whistle blowers and leaks. While the government has a legitimate need for secrecy -- especially to protect the lives of operatives abroad -- the aggressive use of this powerful law in recent years needs to be reviewed to ensure that its use is appropriate and not a hindrance to journalistic freedom or the free flow of ideas and information."
This week saw a chink in that journalistic love affair as one scandal after another descended upon the White House. There was no place for the media to run, no place to hide, as facts behind these scandals descended upon them.....They had to start looking into the swamp that was enveloping the White House and they didn't like what they found.
Today's congressional hearing on the events leading up, during and after the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, are revealing disturbing differences between what the Obama administration told the American public and what actual witnesses to the events are testifying to. Over 40 years ago .. days of televised Congressional hearings with the often repeated phrase: "what did the President know and when did he know it?"--- held the nation spellbound as politicians from both parties asked tough questions of the presidents staff.
The Obama administration still refers to the slaughter of American soldiers at Ft. Hood Texas by Major Hassan, as workplace violence, even though he had ties to radical Islam and he was uttering Allah Akhbar as he squeezed the trigger killing our unarmed soldiers... But Islamic radicals want to kill us in the name of their religion...Why? Because we are Americans. Boston was an act of war, not a criminal act.
America's insatiable desire to get high, has kept our prisons full. Many of those incarcerated, abused drugs or alcohol; which may have accounted for the criminal behavior that landed them in prison...Perhaps they were involved in the sale and marketing of drugs, or were themselves the end users. The cost of addiction to our society can't even be measured in dollars alone. What bad decisions do addictions cause when judgment is impaired? How many families are shattered? Careers and reputations ruined? Accidental deaths and overdose?
For the past several years, anti Christianity has intensified as the Arab Spring was ushered into the Middle East and North Africa, ancient homelands to Christians. Alarming stories of persecutions fill the newswires as Christians are harassed and either driven out of their ancient homelands, or transcended into second class citizens. It has also been fashionable to attack and ridicule Christianity in the entertainment industry under the guise of being cutting edge, as comedians and entertainers mock Christianity. Although it is painfully obvious these same artists lack the courage to browbeat Islam, a religion that will actually fire back at them. A college professor at Florida Atlantic University, assigned his students to write the name of Jesus on a piece of paper, then put it on the ground and stomp on it.
From a purely analytic viewpoint, Michael Collins was absolutely critical in the advancement of modern terrorist & insurgency organizations. In following the timeline through the 20th Century terrorist groups, it appears that virtually ALL groups have and are following, the IRA Model.
Let's use some outcome based education for a change. If you are going to let a student burden him/herself with a huge debt in order to graduate from your school, you should have some skin in the game. Colleges should have to guarantee these loans, instead of laying that debt off onto taxpayers if the student defaults. Perhaps there would be a change in admissions, stricter standards and heavier counseling... We saw the problem that unfulfilled promises academic institutions made to students when our cities were clogged with Occupy Wall Street. Many of these young people expressed anger at their inability to find a job, a good paying job with the liberal arts degrees they possessed. They felt they were lied to by their education institutions...in a way they were
According to a report named Christiana-phobia, by the think tank Civitas: The "lion's share" of persecution faced by Christians arises in countries where Islam is the dominant faith. Between half and two-thirds of Christians in the Middle East have left the region or have been killed in the past century. "There is now a serious risk that Christianity will disappear from its biblical heartlands," it claims.
Brown and Mitt Romney, both headquartered in Massachusetts, used the same political playbook as they waged their campaigns. Both of them seemed hesitant to answer back attacks waged on them and never took advantage of clear targets when it came to their opponents glaring weaknesses. Brown pulled punches with Elizabeth Warren, by not aggressively going to the source, legally, on how she received her positions in govt/universities by claiming to be a Native American. Clearly, a fraudulent abuse of federal/state affirmative action laws, as it was found Warren had no legitimate claim for Native American status.
Senators demanded Brennan explain Obama policy justifying the killing of Americans on foreign soil who they feel could be a threat to America. These killings can be done without a hearing or any semblance of rights Americans are entitled to. Brennan did not have a satisfactory answer for many of the senators, who feel the Obama administration has set itself up as judge jury and executioner. Code Pink has been strangely quiet for the past 4 years of the Obama administration, which exposed their partisan political agenda...Until today, when they got a chance to show their displeasure with Obama policies.
LaPierre's suggestion for federal intervention in Chicago is a good one. Bring in federal police forces to help patrol the violent streets. Make it a national priority to protect the law abiding citizens of Chicago. When the criminals are taken off the streets, the percentage of gun violence will be drastically reduced. This same formula should be used to target other crime and violence plagued cities. Disarm and jail the criminals who use guns, enforce the existing gun laws.
Instead of rebuilding foreign countries with billions of our tax dollars, we should take those dollars and use them to protect our borders. A border fence would be a stimulus for our economy, create thousands of jobs in the construction industry, and help staunch the flow of drugs.
Governor Huckabee mentioned he was subjected to a security background check while Governor of Arkansas, in order to be allowed access to National Homeland Security information. At the time, he was a sitting Governor, a politician... he had no problem complying with it. In fact he suggested all politicians be subjected to security background checks.
The main stream media has been a willing accomplice to this administrations attempt to bury Benghazi and doesn't have the appetite to upset the apple cart of lies and deceptions. The absence of details as to exactly what happened before, during and after the Benghazi murders, is astonishing. Such as: Orders were given to not help Americans under attack in Benghazi. Who gave that order? Why?
But at the peak, the President and the left, are making a concerted effort to demonize gun ownership and put strict gun controls on law abiding American citizens, which includes women. One left wing news publication in New York even went so far as to publish the names and addresses of legal gun owners in areas of New York, as if to shame them. See NY Journal News exposes gun owners to danger Perhaps they didn't realize when they published these names; they exposed women who were gun owners trying to keep their identities and residences secret in order to evade stalkers. This publication also outed the names and addresses of women judges and police officers, who were legal gun owners
Followers/True Believes of Mr. Gore, burn with religious fervor as they recite historic temperature variations & green house gas concentrations, proving the earth is headed towards certain destruction due to the burning of fossil fuels. We must repent now! In one fell swoop Mr. Gore has enhanced a fossil-fuel consortium, attempted to beat tax hikes he has advocated that others should pay and empowered an anti-American/anti-Semitic media conglomerate.

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
