Hillary Demands Royal Treatment On Speaking Tour…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Let them eat cake!!! Hillz demands hummus and crudité, lemon wedges and bottled water. You don’t say… Via Truth Revolt: It was like a scene out of “The Princess and the Pea,” only this was real life. Along with her $300,000 fee for her speech at UCLA , Hillary Clinton had a list of demands, one of which was “that the chairs be outfitted with two long, rectangular pillows — and that two cushions be kept backstage in case the chair was too deep and she needed additional back support.” Through a Freedom of Information Act request […]

NFL Player On Ferguson: “The Problem Is Not A Skin Problem, It Is A Sin Problem”…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This shows that there is hope for our country, and besides, this young man makes a lot of sense. “I’M ENCOURAGED, because ultimately the problem is not a SKIN problem, it is a SIN problem. SIN is the reason we rebel against authority. SIN is the reason we abuse our authority. SIN is the reason we are racist, prejudiced and lie to cover for our own. SIN is the reason we riot, loot and burn.” Via Right Scoop: New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson wrote a very honest assessment of how he feels about what happened […]

Valerie Jarrett In Close, Regular Contact With Missouri Gov. Who “Forgot” To Send In National Guard To #Ferguson

  Hat/Tip to Charlie Spierling at So Valerie Jarrett and Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) were on the phone and in constant close contact on the night of the riots that broke out after the Grand Jury decision was announced? Why? Of course this, the most transparent administration since the invention of sliced bread will never tell us, but it does beg the question as what an unelected bureaucrat was spending so much time with the governor of a state on the night that one of this cities saw mass rioting, looting and assorted acts of violence. Missouri Governor […]

Tea Party Steps In To Help Riot-Racked Businesses Rebuild In #Ferguson: Media Silent

    Hat/Tip to Joe Saunders at BizPacReview. Those racist Tea Partiers are at it again!! Just days after Ferguson, MO exploded into riots and looting, they had the audacity to march into that town and… spend money in the stores that were managing to be open for business. While liberals “leaders” were crowing for the cameras and pretending to pray, St. Louis conservatives were taking some positive steps toward actually helping the Ferguson community torn up by rioting.  St. Louis Tea Party organized a “BUYcott” of businesses in Ferguson where some of the worst violence occurred. It’s an idea […]

Dana Carvey: Liberals ‘Brutalize’ Conservative Comics

Actor and Comedian Dana Carvey. (Bryan Bedder/Getty Images) Hat/Tip to John Blosser at Newsmax. Many of us remember him from his impersonations of Dan Quayle, H. Ross Perot, Jimmy Stewart, Johnny Carson or even Keith Richards. Or as The Church Lady, Hans (from Hans and Franz), or the ever popular Garth from Wayne’s World. So to say that Dana Carvey is mulit-talented comedian would be understating it. His career post Saturday Night Live seemed to be taking off. Then in the late ’90s he underwent a simple heart-bypass operation. However, the surgeon worked on the wrong artery, and Dana’s health worsened. […]

Bad News For Al Gore: 28 In Arizona, Temps In The ’30s In Florida…Record Cold Spell All Across The U.S.

Hat/Tip to Jon Erdman at The only thing that is more mortally wounded than that bird on your Thanksgiving table is Al Gore’s Global Climate Warming Change fear factory. Record cold temperatures are being recorded all across the country. Waves of cold Arctic air are finding their way down into the “lower 48″ and wreaking havoc along the way. Record-Breaking November Arctic Cold   Long Lasting Cold Above is a European computer model of the Arctic blasts that are reaching their way deep into the Continental United States. With blocking high pressure aloft over eastern Alaska and northwest Canada, […]

Why We Eat Turkey On Thanksgiving Day

Hat/Tip to Ethan Trex at mental_floss.   When Americans sit down with their families for Thanksgiving dinner, most of us will probably gorge ourselves on the same traditional Thanksgiving menu, with turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and pumpkin pie taking up the most real estate on our plates. How did these dishes become the national “what you eat on Thanksgiving” options, though? THE PILGRIMS MAY NOT HAVE HAD TURKEY Turkey may not have been on the menu at the 1621 celebration by the Pilgrims of Plymouth that is considered the First Thanksgiving (though historians and fans of Virginia’s Berkeley Plantation might […]

Abraham Lincoln’s Proclamation Of Thanksgiving

  Proclamation of Thanksgiving   This is the proclamation which set the precedent for America’s national day of Thanksgiving. During his administration, President Lincoln issued many orders similar to this. For example, on November 28, 1861, he ordered government departments closed for a local day of thanksgiving. Sarah Josepha Hale, a 74-year-old magazine editor, wrote a letter to Lincoln on September 28, 1863, urging him to have the “day of our annual Thanksgiving made a National and fixed Union Festival.” She explained, “You may have observed that, for some years past, there has been an increasing interest felt in our […]

The Grinch Who Moved Thanksgiving

  Over the river and through the wood, to Grandfather’s house we go…Ah, Thanksgiving, our loveliest secular holiday. Even the Masters of War can’t dislodge it – though FDR tried his damndest. George Washington issued the first National Thanksgiving Proclamation on November 26, 1789, but the early presidents, disproportionately Virginian and of a states’ rights disposition, regarded such proclamations as excessively Yankee and Federalist. Even John Quincy Adams, the ultimate codfish President, was reluctant to be seen as “introducing New England manners” by a public acknowledgement of Thanksgiving. The antebellum New England novelist and editor Sarah Josepha Hale is to […]

The Story of the First Thanksgiving 2014

  This is the annual CH 2.0 re-telling of the true story of the first Thanksgiving. By Matt Ross ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I heard  this story years ago, so I thought I’d post it. The official story has the pilgrims boarding the Mayflower, coming to America and establishing the Plymouth colony in the winter of 1620-21. This first winter is hard, and half the colonists die. But the survivors are hard working and tenacious, and they learn new farming techniques from the Indians. The harvest of 1621 is bountiful. The Pilgrims hold a celebration, and give thanks to God. They are grateful for the […]

Are There No More Paul Harveys To Give Us “The Rest Of The Story” On #Ferguson?

  For nearly forty years, Paul Harvey provided his huge listening public The rest of the story. Harvey, in his unique style, would report on popular news stories, but would tell a side of the story that was not being covered by the other news outlets. I find myself wishing he were still around to tell us the rest of story about the events taking place in Ferguson, Missouri, because I have a lot of questions: What percentage of the Ferguson population are participating in the riots? Do all black people in Ferguson support what the mobs are doing to their […]

Which Office Does Darren Wilson Go To, To Get His Reputation Back?

  Last night when I heard that the Grand Jury cleared Officer Darren Wilson of all charges in the shooting death of “gentle giant” Michael Brown I immediately had one thought — like Ray Donovan, which office does Darren Wilson go to to get his reputation back? Not Barack Obama’s Oval Office. Dear Leader famously told the Ferguson mob to “stay the course.” And the mob wants Darren Wilson’s head. Not Eric Holder’s Justice Department. They’re marching down the path to double jeopardy, finalizing federal “civil rights” charges against Officer Wilson. Not the newsrooms of our media barons. I made […]

#Ferguson Riots Claim Their First Casualty As Man, 20, Is Found Shot Dead Near Where Mike Brown Was Killed

Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. Who will protest the death of this man? Via Daily Mail: A man has died during the Ferguson riots just yards from where Michael Brown was shot dead. Residents on Canfield Drive said that DeAndre Joshua, 20, was shot whilst in his car though police at the scene refused to confirm any details. DeAndre’s grandmother Renita Towns said that ‘somebody killed him’ during the carnage.   Joshua DeAndre wasn’t rioting, or looting. He was in his car.   DeAndre Joshua, 20, found dead yards from scene of Michael Brown’s death Grandmother says ‘somebody killed him’ […]

Missouri Governor Denied #Ferguson Mayor’s Repeated Requests To Deploy The National Guard

Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. Dem Missouri Governor Denied Mayor’s Request For National Guard Last Night In #Ferguson As Businesses Burned There is evidently bad blood between the Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D) and his Lt. Governor, Peter Kinder (R). One might surmise that from the mere fact that they are from opposing political parties, but there is a time to put aside ideological differences and focus on the safety of the public. Missouri Lt. Governor criticizes failure to deploy National Guard last night in #Ferguson — Wolverine (@Nickarama1) November 25, 2014 Last night, as the carnage began in […]

Ted Cruz: All Presidential Nominees Should Be Blocked Until Obama Rescinds His Amnesty…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Just one more reason to admire this man. The reason he pisses off the GOP establishment so much is that they are too afraid to do what he does – take the left and this lawless President on, head on. Via Hot Air: Another leftover from Sunday brunch via the Corner. Joel Pollak floated this idea a few weeks ago in a piece for Breitbart. I thought of it again on Thursday night, when I was busy enjoying my vacation from HA by watching Obama’s amnesty speech and screaming at my TV. Now here’s Cruz proposing the […]

Boomer And Xers: Most Of You Missed The Boat. What The Hell Were You Thinking?

  The Burning Platform is one of the more outstanding blogs on the internet, in my opinion. The latest post there has left me shaking my head in wonderment about the younger baby boomers  and the so-called generation X. It’s a long post, so I’ll try to give you the short version. The author came across some data that demonstrates clearly that a large percentage of those generations are utterly, totally unprepared for their quickly approaching retirement years. They have next to no savings and they have no one to blame but themselves. The author starts with this quip: I […]
