July 4 crowds ignore call to boycott Georgia park over Confederate flag - Yahoo News Canada


A better idea would be to eradicate Al Sharpton, et al, from our collective memory!

Practice Free Speech July 4 -- Fight PC Censors | National Review Online

by John Fund July 3, 2015 
 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 merely, for example, displayed little troops carrying the infamous
Rebel banner. But the partial retreat came only after the Game Labs
Team, which develops computer simulations, blasted Apple: 
 Spielberg’s Schindler’s List did not try to amend his movie to look
more comfortable. The historical Gettysburg movie (1993) is still on
iTunes. We believe that all historical art forms: books, movies, or
games such as ours, help to learn and understand history, depicting
events as they were. True stories are more important to us than money. .
. . We can’t change history, but we can change the future. 
 Nor are games the only focus of a PC purge. MSNBC’s Al Sharpton and
Sharpton’s National Action Network are demanding that the Pentagon
eradicate “all remnants of the Confederacy” from its military bases,
including the names of Confederate officers who didn’t own slaves. They
recently staged a protest outside Fort Hamilton Army base, in Brooklyn,
calling for the Pentagon to rename General Lee Avenue, which runs
through the base. Memphis mayor A. C. Wharton Jr. is demanding that the
grave of Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest be dug up and exiled
from the city. Huffington Post commenters are demanding that statues of
Confederates in Washington, D.C., be pulled down. 
 As Matthew Philbin of the conservative Media Research Center noted: “Of
course a living, breathing former long-time Ku Klux Klan organizer
resided in the Capitol for nearly as long as some of its statues, but
because Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd was a Democrat, libs like the
HuffPo crowd weren’t interested in history.” 
Naturally, there are no calls to remove Woodrow Wilson’s name from
anything, even though that progressive Democratic president was a
strident racist who during his time in office re-segregated the federal
work force, fired hundreds of black federal employees, and showed D. W.
Griffith’s racist Birth of a Nation at the White House.

The Time Has Come to Ignore the Imperious, Political Courts

Support Grows for States to Ignore the Federal Courts - Rasmussen Reports™

July 03, 2015

Following last week’s controversial U.S. Supreme Court rulings on Obamacare and gay marriage, voters believe more strongly that individual states should have the right to turn their backs on the federal courts.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 33% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe that states should have the right to ignore federal court rulings if their elected officials agree with them. That’s up nine points from 24% when we first asked this question in February.  Just over half (52%) disagree, down from 58% in the earlier survey. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Perhaps even more disturbing is that the voters who feel strongest about overriding the federal courts – Republicans and conservatives - are those who traditionally have been the most supportive of the Constitution and separation of powers. During the Obama years, however, these voters have become increasingly suspicious and even hostile toward the federal government.
Fifty percent (50%) of GOP voters now believe states should have the right to ignore federal court rulings ...

There was a Bitch from Nantucket ... the pleni-impotentiary

More self-congratulations to go around for the Bitch-of-Benghazi. What with miles and miles traveled with nothing but waste in her wake. The culture that lacks culture surrounding her and her ilk is summed up in this article:
“He had lots to say which might be of interest,” L reports. I hope she’s kidding. Wherever the eminences gather, the conversation is almost certainly turgid and boring, a cliché-ridden bog of credulity and mutual self-regard: Have you seen Joe Nye’s latest article on “smart power,” Norm Ornstein says gridlock in Congress has never been worse, I’ve given two TED talks, one in Mumbai and one in London, John Oliver had this hilarious bit where he dressed up dogs as Supreme Court Justices! We got the kids fantastic seats for Taylor Swift through our black card, Cooper is taking a gap year to teach computer literacy to underprivileged youth in Ecuador... 

Hillary Clinton's E-mails Expose Washington Culture | National Review Online

by MATTHEW CONTINETTI July 4, 2015 

So she doesn’t know how to use a fax machine. Big whoop. If there is a “smoking gun” in the 3,000 pages of Hillary Clinton e-mails released by the State Department this week, it’s not in her technological ineptitude, or her calling her hairdresser “Santa,” or her continuing to encourage Sid Blumenthal to offer bad advice, or her fetish for ice tea, or her bizarre demand that John Podesta wear socks to bed. The most revealing dispatch, the one dripping with unintended irony and status detail and sanctimony dressed as social conscience, is the e-mail Lynn Forester de Rothschild, centimillionaire, addressed to Clinton on the morning of August 26, 2009. It is 122 preening and obsequious words long. I reprint it here: ...

Man arrested in connection with San Francisco killing had been deported several times, officials say | Fox News

By Judson Berger Published July 03, 2015 FoxNews.com

The man arrested in connection with the seemingly random killing of a woman who was out for a stroll with her father along the San Francisco waterfront is an illegal immigrant who previously had been deported five times, federal immigration officials say. 
Further, Immigration and Customs Enforcement says San Francisco had him in their custody earlier this year but failed to notify ICE when he was released. 
"DHS records indicate ICE lodged an immigration detainer on the subject at that time, requesting notification prior to his release so ICE officers could make arrangements to take custody. The detainer was not honored," ICE said in a statement Friday afternoon. 
Kathryn Steinle was killed Wednesday evening at Pier 14 -- one of the busiest tourist destinations in the city.

CDC Official Calls Obama Worst President

CDC Official Calls Obama Worst President, Amateur, Marxist After Influx of Illegal Alien Minors

JULY 02, 2015
Following the influx of illegal immigrant minors from Central America, an official at the federal agency charged with protecting public health describes Barack Obama as “the worst pres we have ever had,” an “amateur” and “Marxist,” according to internal emails obtained by Judicial Watch.

JW got the records as part of an investigation into the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) activation of an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to deal with the barrage of illegal alien minors last summer. Tens of thousands of Central Americans came into the United States through the Mexican border and contagious diseases—many considered to be eradicated in the U.S.—became a tremendous concern. The CDC, which operates under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), responded by opening an emergency facility designed to monitor and coordinate response activities to eminent public health threats.

Why are we flush with Lies About Mexicans?

Not to mention lies from politicians and the media about nearly anything else that may ruin our lives! m/r

Ann Coulter - July 1, 2015 - MEDIA HIDE FACTS, CALL EVERYONE ELSE A LIAR

When Donald Trump said something not exuberantly enthusiastic about Mexican immigrants, the media's response was to boycott him. One thing they didn't do was produce any facts showing he was wrong. 

Trump said: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems to us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." 

The first thing a fact-checker would have noticed is: THE GOVERNMENT WON'T TELL US HOW MANY IMMIGRANTS ARE COMMITTING CRIMES IN AMERICA. 

Wouldn't that make any person of average intelligence suspicious? Not our media. They're in on the cover-up. 

A curious media might also wonder why any immigrants are committing crimes in America. A nation's immigration policy, like any other government policy, ought to be used to help the people already here -- including the immigrants, incidentally. 

It's bad enough that immigrants, both legal and illegal, are accessing government benefits at far above the native rate, but why would any country be taking another country's criminals? We have our own criminals! No one asked for more.
