We’re emailing you because this is really important:

The Kochs have unleashed a plan to spend $125 million against Democrats in this election. If we’re going to stand up to that onslaught, it’s going to take an outpouring of support. We’re down to our last 24 hours before our fundraising deadline and still coming up 12,835 donations short. Drew, can we count on you?

Thanks,

Most Segregated Schools are in Democratic States

Would it be a big surprise if the states with the most segregated schools were democratic bastions?  You know, the party of slavery?  The party of Jim Crow?  The Party of the KKK?  The Party of Margaret Sanger and the “Negro Project,” AKA Planned Parenthood?  Yeah, that democrat party.  They seem to be keeping their racist traditions going, as evidenced by the following…

The state with the most segregated public schools is New York.

Other states with exceptionally segregated schools include California, Illinois and Michigan.

These findings come from a longitudinal study of enrollment figures conducted by the Civil Rights Project at the University of California at Los Angeles, The Associated Press reports. The period studied was 1998 through 2010.

New York, California, Illinois and Michigan are traditionally among the most reliably Democratic states in the union, as an interactive 2012 map created by Slate shows.

A 2013 “State of the States” feature by Gallup indicates that New York, California and Illinois are “solid Democratic” strongholds. Michigan leans Democratic.

If you recall, it is democrats that actively prevent black students from escaping failing public schools.  Here is a video from several years back…

But, are African Americans really victims or racist Conservatives, or racist leftists? Well, lets take a look at a school that takes poor African American kids, and sends 85% of them to college-well over the national average…

Now, just take a second and absorb that.  A mostly white mob surrounds a school filled with mostly black, SUCCESSFUL students, and as you heard at the end, the man, who reportedly is a public school official, suggests that choice is being targeted as well-meaning, like in all choice situations, the unions want them shut down.  That, of course, would condemn all the children within to the failed public system-guaranteeing that the cycle of dependence continues.

Once again, a mostly white mob surrounds a school that sends most of their black students to college, and promises to shut the school down.

And, as we covered a month ago, Communist NY Mayor Bill de Blasio discovered that black children were learning to read at charter schools, so he’s trying to shut them down as well…

Like all good, white,  progressives, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio heard that charter schools were successfully teaching dark skinned children how to read, so he’s trying to shut them down…

So, it comes as no surprise that another progressive socialist is attacking another school choice program, charter schools.

As John Fund reported in the National Review, “Last week, New York’s ACORN mayor Bill De Blasio announced he is evicting Success Academy, a widely praised charter school from the Harlem public school building it occupies. Two other charter schools will be blocked from opening. He claims elementary-school kids wouldn’t be safe in a building with high-school students. His excuse is as absurd as the propaganda Vladimir Putin is using to justify the occupation of Crimea.”

If I may put this into the vernacular, De Blasio is a liberal socialist racist jackass who is more concerned with supporting the corrupt teachers’ unions than ensuring deserving minority children can get a better educational opportunity. And don’t give me the blather about him being married to a black woman, obviously she is a progressive elitist who cares not for young black mothers who want something better for their children.

According to Fund, Danique Loving, the principal of Success Academy, notes that “one out of every four African-American boys who drops out of school ends up in jail. That’s what Mayor de Blasio would be focusing on if he were really worried about the safety of our students.” Eva Moskowitz, the CEO of Success Academy, showed up last night at the New York Meeting, a group of political activists and donors, to blast the de Blasio decision and announce she would lead a rally today in Albany, the state capitol, to protest it.

See, charter schools do what the public schools cannot and will not:  teach black children how to read and write. So, when progressives find schools that do that, they always seek to limit them, and then shut them down.  After all, they can’t have black folks getting off the plantation, can they?

And, democrats block the school doors now, just as they did to defend segregation in the 1960’s…

In something reminiscent of the 60?s, Democrats are barring minorities from escaping terrible public schools.    Doug Ross has our first excerpt…

Pro-Choice: The Justice Department has asked a federal court to stop 34 school districts in Louisiana from handing out private-school vouchers so kids can escape failing public schools, just like the president’s daughters.

He didn’t say it on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech,” but President Obama, along with Attorney General Eric Holder, also has a dream — one of leaving every black child in the Pelican State behind, trapped in schools that cannot educate them.

Almost simultaneously with the president’s speech, Holder’s Department of Justice filed suit in federal court to stop Louisiana’s statewide voucher program.

Passed in 2012, the program guarantees a voucher to students from families with incomes below 250% of poverty and who attend schools graded “C” or below.

Liberals are all for choice when it comes to having children, but not when it comes to educating them. The irony of Obama’s speech is that he pretended to honor a man who fought to have black children attend schools they were barred from as his administration fought to keep them in schools they can’t escape from, a form of educational apartheid that’s both separate and unequal.

Once again, just like the 60?s, Republicans are trying to open doors, and Democrats are barring them.  Look it up, it’s history.

Just think about it though, they’re just following what LBJ said so long ago…

To answer this, I think we again need to go back into history, and see what happened in the 60’s. Let’s start with some quotes attributed to LBJ.

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

LBJ, Democratic President of the United States.

“I’ll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”

Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One according Ronald Kessler’s Book, “Inside The White House”

As usual, there are many more examples, and I could go on and basically do a wall of text that no one will read.  However, the point is well made-that the democrats have never changed their racist ways.  They have simply changed their rhetoric, and have played the blame game so well that far too many of our fellow citizens actually believing that the democrats are helping them, when everything continues to get worse.

Documents Links Harry Reid to the Bundy Ranch Stand Off

Share

As more becomes know about the Bundy standoff, the more we find links to Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid.  BizPac Review has more…

Reid, D-Nev., and his oldest son, Rory, a former chairman of the Clark County, Nev., County Commission, were both deeply involved in a plan by ENN Energy Group to build a huge solar farm in southern Nevada, according to a Reuters report from August 2012.

Land the Bundy family has been using for cattle ranching was getting in the way of that project, according to documents formerly posted on the Bureau of Land Management’s government website but since removed, according to Infowars.

It has also been reported that this particular deal is no longer on the table, but was part of the story in 2012.

The acting director of the Bureau of Land Management is Neil Kornze, a former senior policy advisor for Reid.

Here is a screenshot of one crucial document from Google’s cache.

The most interesting line might be:

“Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle.”

The federal government’s story so far is that the whole showdown was necessary for the protection of gopher tortoises.

Here’s how The Blaze’s Dana Loesch puts it in “The Real Story of the Bundy Ranch”:

BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area. If only Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.

From the document purged from the BLM website, it’s clear there were more than tortoises at stake.

So, not only was there no real reason to go after Bundy, and his cattle, but there was a link to Harry Reid, and one that seemed to benefit friends and associates of his.

Just realize that the MSM won’t cover this, and in the event they do, they won’t mention any of this.

Story Update: Woman’s Tax Refund Stolen By Government for Something She Did Not Owe

Share

In what appears to be the next IRS scandal, the government is stealing tax refunds from people-even if they do not know if the targeted person actually did anything wrong.  Greta covered that recently.


 


We know that government, and especially the left, believes that all wealth and income belongs to them-not you. The honestly believe that government, as “god,” determines what, if any, of your income that you GET to keep. Given that belief, it should be no surprise that this is happening.  And, if they have to tax you into poverty, they’ll do it.  If they have to steal your tax refund to do it, that’s OK too.  And if you end up being poor, so be it.  If’s fairness and social justice!

OSHA Targeting Non-Union Plants, and Allowing Union Reps to Come Along on the Inspections

Share

Imagine, if you will, that a federal bureaucracy uses it’s power to target opponents of the Obama administration (non-union facilities).  Now, imagine that not only do they target the non-union facilities, but they bring union reps along for the inspections!  Breitbart has more…

 

“Well, it came to light for us when we noticed that there were more and more stories being reported around the country where OSHA was designating union representatives to come along for inspections in non-unionized industry,” Roby said. “At the same time, OSHA issued what’s regional emphasis program that targeted the automotive parts suppliers in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. And they did so without justification. So, our problem is, number one, we’re questioning whether or not this administration’s interpretation of the law affords OSHA the unilateral opportunity to bring along a union rep to non-unionized corporation for an inspection. But, also, to target specific industry in a specific part of the country without offering the appropriate justification.”

Remember kids, Valerie Jarrett promised that after the election, that the Obama administration was going to punish their enemies.

Seems that the threat is being carried out as promised.

democrats Use Federal Employees to Campaign for Obama

Share

Since rules do not apply to democrats, and only you, it should not be a surprise that democrats use the federal bueacracy to promote the re-election of president Obama.  The Right Scoop has more…

WASHINGTON TIMES – In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s customer help line urged taxpayers “to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,” the Office of Special Counsel said in a statement.

OSC said it is seeking “significant disciplinary action” against that employee.

Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension for blasting Republicans in a conversation with a taxpayer.

“They’re going to take women back 40 years,” the IRS employee said in a conversation that was recorded. The employee also said that “if you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and the poor are going to get poorer.”

That employee went on to tell the taxpayer she knew she wasn’t supposed to be voicing her political opinions, and asked the taxpayer not to say anything.

The federal Hatch Act prohibits most government employees from conducting politics on government time. OSC is charged with looking into those violations.

Of course, the MSM isn’t likely to cover this, not are there are likely to be any real punishment.

Emails Show That IRS Released True The Vote’s Confidential Tax Information to the Office of Elijah Cummings

Share

As we have seen, Elijah Cummings is one of the Congressmen who are keenly interested in killing the investigation into the IRS’s targeting of Conservative groups.  Now, we see why Elijah Cummings was so keenly interested in stopping the investigation, calling it a “witch hunt.” According to recently disclosed emails, it appears that the office of democrat Elijah Cummings actually participated in the targeting.  Town Hall has more…

Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa, along with five Subcommittee Chairmen are demanding Cummings provide an explanation for the staff inquiries to the IRS about True the Vote and for his denial that his staff ever contacted the IRS about the group.

“Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional agency scrutiny, communication records between your staff and IRS officials – which you did not disclose to Majority Members or staff – indicates otherwise,” the letter to Cummings states. “As the Committee is scheduled to consider a resolution holding Ms. Lerner, a participant in responding to your communications that you failed to disclose, in contempt of Congress, you have an obligation to fully explain your staff’s undisclosed contacts with the IRS.”

The first contact between the IRS and Cummings’ staffers about True the Vote happened in August 2012. In January 2013, staff asked for more information from the IRS about the group. Former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner went out of her way to try and get information to Cummings’ office.The information Cummings received was not shared with Majority Members on the Committee.

On January 28, three days after staffers requested more information, Lerner wrote an email to her deputy Holly Paz, who has since been put on administrative leave, asking, “Did we find anything?” Paz responded immediately by saying information had not been found yet, to which Lerner replied, “Thanks, check tomorrow please.”

On January 31, Paz sent True the Vote’s 990 forms to Cumming’s staff.

Up until this point, Rep. Cummings has denied his staff ever contacted the IRS about True the Vote and their activities during Oversight hearings. In fact, on February 6, 2014 during a Subcommittee hearing where Engelbrecht testified, Cummings vehemently denied having any contact or coordination in targeting True the Vote when attorney Cleta Mitchell, who is representing the group, indicated staff on the Committee had been involved in communication with the IRS. This was the exchange:

Ms. Mitchell: We want to get to the bottom of how these coincidences happened, and we’re going to try to figure out whether any – if there was any staff of this committee that might have been involved in putting True the Vote on the radar screen of some of these Federal agencies. We don’t know that, but we – we’re going to do everything we can do to try to get to the bottom of how did this all happen.

 

Mr. Cummings. Will the gentleman yield?

Mr. Meadows. Yes.

Mr. Cummings. I want to thank the gentleman for his courtesy. What she just said is absolutely incorrect and not true.

So, there you go.  Democrats trying to silence the investigation into the scandal that they themselves created.  Isn’t that convenient?

Just as Predicted, Insurance Premiums Continue to Skyrocket-Because of ObamaCare

Share

obamacare

ObamaCare was supposed to decrease heath insurance premiums.  In fact, we were promised a $2500 DECREASE in ObamaCare Premiums.  Instead, however, we are seeing vast INCREASES in premiums.  I guess, just like the “If you like your plan” lie, and just like the “If you like your doctor” lie, the “premiums are going to go down” claim is every bit the lie as the first two.  Wyblog has more…

Now, in a Superfecta of Obamacare #fail, if you were expecting to save $2,500 per year, well, the joke’s on you.

Do you remember when Barack Obama told you the average family would save $2,500 a year under Obamacare?

Yeah, that was a lie, too.

Everything Obama says is a lie. Including “and” and “the.”

The United States has seen the sharpest increase in health insurance premiums in the last year than possibly ever, a new survey has found, and analysts have concluded the “increases are largely due to changes under the Affordable Care Act.”

According to Forbes Magazine, a quarterly survey by investment bank Morgan Stanley of 148 brokers who sell insurance showed that premiums accelerated in the last quarter more than of any of the 12 prior quarterly periods, a peak which has coincided with the run-up to the Obamacare deadline.

The average premium increases for insurance renewals in the most recent quarter were over 11 percent in the small group market and 12 percent in the individual market where consumers buy coverage directly from health plans. By comparison, the September survey showed that increases in the small group market averaged 3 percent, and 2 percent in the individual market.

In some states, increases have been 10 to 50 times those averages, according to Forbes. For the individual insurance market, premiums have increased an average of 100 percent in Delaware, 90 percent in New Hampshire, 54 percent in Indiana, 53 percent in California, 45 percent in Connecticut, and 37 percent in Florida.

For the small group market, Washington had an average increase of 588 percent, followed by Pennsylvania at 66 percent, California at 37 percent, and Indiana at 34 percent.

If you voted for Obama, you voted for this.  You were warned, but you chose to listen to idiots (MSNBC) and liars. (democrats).  Millions have lost their plans, or doctors.  And now, most of the rest are going to pay, and pay, and pay.  Then, if they can’t afford to pay, they still will pay the tax.  In liberal land, even if you don’t pay, you still pay.  That’s life under ObamaCare, and it’s just the beginning.

Anti-Gun Democrat State Senator, Leland Yee, Accused of Weapons Trafficking: MSM Silent

Share

What happens when a democrat, who is a gun grabber, get’s arrested for weapons trafficking? Well, many things happen, but MSM coverage is not one of them.  American Glob has more…

You see, Leland Yee is a pro gun control Democrat who has been accused of bribery, fraud, corruption and trying to sell guns and rocket launchers to enemies of the United States.

For obvious reasons, the media has absolutely no interest in this story.

Glenn Reynolds explains why…

CNN, home (also until last week) of Piers Morgan, whom Yee had praised for his anti-gun activism, didn’t report the story at all. When prodded by viewers, the network snarked that it doesn’t do state senators. Which is odd, because searching the name of my own state senator, Stacey Campfield, turns up a page of results, involving criticisms of him for saying something “extreme”. Meanwhile, CNN found time to bash Wisconsin state senator and supporter of Gov. Scott Walker, Randy Hopper over marital problems.

But there’s a difference. They’re Republicans. When Republicans do things that embarrass their party, the national media are happy to take note, even if they’re mere state senators. But when Democrats like Yee get busted for actual felonies, and pretty dramatic ones at that, the press suddenly isn’t interested.

And once again, the MSM fails, most intentionally, to report truths that cast democrats in a bad light.   Rest assured, however,  that if Yee had a “R” after his name, it would be on every broadcast.

Story Update: Fellow Democrat Blasts Kathleen Kane for Refusing to Prosecute PA Democrats for Accepting Bribes

Share

The other day, we covered that investigators caught several democrat state representatives on audio or video, taking bribes in exchange for votes.  Then, when Kathleen Kane took over as  PA AG, she killed the investigation, calling it racist.  Now, the democrat DA from Philadelphia is blasting Kane for letting crooked politicians off the hook…

Prosecutors almost never go to war against each other. But in Pennsylvania, Democratic attorney general Kathleen Kane is being brutally criticized by Seth Williams, Philadelphia’s district attorney and a fellow Democrat. Williams is upset that last year one of Kane’s first acts in office was to decline to prosecute four Philadelphia state legislators and other government officials. In a sting operation, all had been caught accepting cash or Tiffany jewelry in exchange for votes or favors. Kane, who is white, has defended herself, saying that the investigation was badly managed and tainted by racism. She claims the criticism comes from what she calls the “Good Ol’ Boys Club.” Williams, who is African American, has shot back: “I have seen racism. I know what it looks like. This isn’t it.”

The sting operation followed pretty much the same playbook as the federal Abscam investigation of the 1970s. Begun in 2010, the Philly probe was conducted under Kane’s three immediate predecessors as attorney general, and it resulted in more than 400 hours of video and audio recordings. Tyron B. Ali, a lobbyist originally from Trinidad, served as the undercover agent; after he was charged with fraud, he agreed to wear a wire in exchange for lenient treatment. Word of his cash offers eventually got around and prompted some elected officials to call him first. “Sources with knowledge of the sting said the investigation made financial pitches to both Republicans and Democrats, but only Democrats accepted the payments,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reported last week.

Attorney General Kane inherited the investigation when she took office in January 2013. She told the Inquirer that she stopped it without filing any charges because it was “poorly conceived, badly managed, and tainted by racism.” She quoted Claude Thomas, the chief investigator in the case, as saying he had been ordered to target “only members of the General Assembly’s Black Caucus” and to ignore “potentially illegal acts by white members.”

Note the bolded text, that tells us that bribes were offered to both democrats and members of the stupid party?  Do you also note that even the members of the stupid party had the sense to not commit a felony?  How can Kane claim it’s racism when only the democrats chose to accept bribes?

Of course, we’re dealing with democrats here, so the actual truth really doesn’t matter anyway.

Westboro Baptist Church Founder, Fred Phelps, is Lifelong Democrat

Share

This is delicious irony, given the teachings of Fred Phelps are no more Christian than those of Anton Levey.  The left uses Phelps and his nonsense  (he never did read John 8:7, or get what it meant) to smear Christians.  But, it Christians that get the last laugh.  As Phelps reportedly is near death, it is revealed that he is a life-long democrat, having campaigned for the goracle, as well as have run ojn the democratic ticket himself.  Truth Revolt has more…

The founder of Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps, notorious for leading hateful protests against gay rights, is actually a Democrat with long history of endorsing Democratic candidates.

On Tuesday, Politico provided some background on Phelps’ political history, most of which saw him endorsing Democrat candidates and running for office a number of times as a Democrat. In the 1990’s, Phelps ran in three Kansas Democratic primaries for Governor in 1990, 1994, and 1998, receiving only 15% of the vote. He also ran for Senator in 1992, receiving 31% of the vote, and for mayor of Topeka in 1993 and 1997.

Phelp’s endorsed Al Gore for the 1988 Presidential candidacy due to his opposition to a “gay bill of rights” and comments that homosexuality wasn’t something “society should affirm.” Phelps and his congregation later picketed the 1997 inaugural ceremony after he switched his opinions on gay rights. He also endorsed Bill Clinton in 1992.

In 1997, Phelps wrote a letter to Saddam Hussein, praising him for being “the only Muslim state that allows the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to be freely and openly preached on the streets.” Hussein then granted Phelps permission to send a delegation to “preach the Gospel” for one week. Church congregates then traveled to Iraq where they protested the U.S. by standing on the streets of Baghdad holding signs condemning Bill and Hillary Clinton.

It’s funny that the party of the Klan attracted such a fine, upstanding citizens such as Phelps.  Actually, it’s not, but it seems that hate attracts hate.

Democrats in PA Caught Accepting Bribes to Oppose Voter ID; Democrat AG Closes Investigation

Share

What if elected officials were caught on tape accepting bribes in exchange to vote against legislation?  What if these officials accepted cash or money orders?  What is there was over 400 HOURS of damning recordings of these bribes?  Well, if you’re in PA, and the offenders are democrats, you have nothing to fear-line your pockets with ease.  You see, Diane Kane, the democratic AG, will simply end the investigation, and you can accept all the bribes you like! PJ Media has more…

Despite this evidence, Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane has not charged any officials. Kane is a Democrat.

Kane’s excuse for her inaction? Racism: some of the legislators caught on tape accepting bribes were black Democrats from Philadelphia. From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

In a statement to The Inquirer on Friday, Kane called the investigation poorly conceived, badly managed, and tainted by racism, saying it had targeted African Americans.

Those who favored the sting believe Kane killed a solid investigation, led by experienced prosecutor Frank G. Fina, that had ensnared several public officials and had the potential to capture more. They said they were outraged at Kane’s allegation that race had played a role in the case.

Before Kane ended the investigation, sources familiar with the inquiry said, prosecutors amassed 400 hours of audio and videotape that documented at least four city Democrats taking payments in cash or money orders, and in one case a $2,000 Tiffany bracelet.

Fine — a Pennsylvania Democrat won’t do anything about other corrupt Pennsylvania Democrats. But what about Eric Holder? After all, Holder has shown a tough-as-nails willingness to go after elected officials who accept gifts in exchange for official actions.

Well, there you have it. If you’re into graft, move to PA and get yourself elected.  Then, freely accept  bribes, and your fellow democrats will call it “raaaaacism,” and sweep it under the table.

And who knows, even if you’re caught in a sting, you can still keep the money!

Putin Calls America “Godless,” Historical Irony Ensues

Share

Back in the days when Vladimir Putin’s bosses worked under the Soviet banner, that particular regime was called “Godless.”  It was called that because, well, it was Godless.  In fact, it persecuted Christians, Jews, and the like.  Now, it seems that the tables have turned…

In the irony of ironies, Russian President Valadimir Putin has criticized western nations for straying from their Christian roots. Putin’s statement, made during his state of the nation address this past December, contends that America has become a “Godless” nation.  What Putin actually said was: “Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values.  Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan.  This is the path to degradation.”  This is quite a statement coming from a former KGB officer who faithfully served a nation that executed more than 200,000 clergy in the years between 1917 and 1937.

Fear not folks; we know that Putin doesn’t wear a white hat.  It’s as I have been saying as of late; “Obama is so pathetic, that he makes Putin look good.”  But, does Putin have a point?  According to , Putin just might be onto something…

Putin is not alone in his belief that the West has strayed from its Christian roots.  Patriarch Kirill I of the Russian Orthodox Church has claimed that Western nations are guilty of “spiritual disarmament.”  Although it is a little easier to take such a statement when it comes from a religious patriarch than a former KGB officer, Kirill is simply saying the same thing as Putin.  Consequently, for those who want to ignore the message because it comes from an unworthy messenger—President Putin formerly of the “evil empire”—let me encourage you to respond to the following questions before making up your mind:

  • Have liberals conspired with leftwing academics to rewrite American history so that the Christian principals upon which the United States of America was founded have been expunged from the record and replaced by anti-Christian, anti-American tripe that focuses solely on our nation’s warts and blemishes?  Further, have liberal revisionists rewritten the textbooks so that American students spend 12 years learning why they should be embarrassed by and ashamed of our country?
  • Have liberals conspired to be tolerant of everything in America except Christianity?  Is it not true that in the public square Islam, Hinduism, moral relativism, and other religions get a pass while Christianity is to be neither mentioned nor tolerated?
  • Have liberals conspired to transform public education in America into 12 years of leftwing indoctrination that belittles and scorns Christians as Puritanical bigots while praising secular humanism?
  • Have liberals conspired to attack, undermine, and trash Christians who oppose same-sex marriage on Biblical grounds?  Do wedding businesses that do not wish to perform same-sex marriages on Biblical grounds immediately become targets of government coercion and threats from the homosexual community?
  • Have liberals conspired to ensure that the Lord’s Prayer and Bible readings are no longer a part of the public school experience as they once were in all 50 states?  Further, have liberals worked with the ACLU to deny Christians their Constitutional right to pray at high school athletic events and graduations?

Please read the rest of the post, as it is quite good.  Of course, Putin isn’t saying or doing anything for our benefit.  He is simply taking advantage of a weak POTUS with a sense of national loyalty that would make Quisling blush.  And, in the process, Vladimir Putin is forging a name for himself, and attempting to displace us as the world’s predominate super-power.

Will Bill de Blasio Drive the Rich From NYC?

Share

If the rumblings coming from the Big Apple are correct, Bill de Blasio, the communist mayor, will successfully drive the rich, and their money, from the city.  Wyblog has more…

Gentlemen start your moving vans, wealthy NYers perpare to flee de Blasio’s commie utopia

Rich liberals don’t like it when they’re asked to pay their “fair share.”

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s eat-the-rich policies aren’t sitting to well with the city’s wealthy residents. According to Michael Goodman, a number of them are getting ready to flee the Big Apple for greener pastures, like Florida, where they won’t be treated like criminals.

Of course, leftists are taking their usual approach, claiming that it is not, or will not happen, but in 2009, I covered what happened in Maryland, when their democrats decided to punish success…

“Let’s go get those evil rich folks that are pooping on the little guy!”  The class envy folks love saying things like that.  When they get into power, as they are now, they attempt just that.  Now, I could go into a long, drawn out description of why that is a terrible idea, but they won’t listen anyway.  Instead, I’ll give an example, and laugh at their fail.  The source is found here.

Here’s a two-minute drill in soak-the-rich economics:

Maryland couldn’t balance its budget last year, so the state tried to close the shortfall by fleecing the wealthy. Politicians in Annapolis created a millionaire tax bracket, raising the top marginal income-tax rate to 6.25%. And because cities such as Baltimore and Bethesda also impose income taxes, the state-local tax rate can go as high as 9.45%. Governor Martin O’Malley, a dedicated class warrior, declared that these richest 0.3% of filers were “willing and able to pay their fair share.” The Baltimore Sun predicted the rich would “grin and bear it.”

One year later, nobody’s grinning. One-third of the millionaires have disappeared from Maryland tax rolls. In 2008 roughly 3,000 million-dollar income tax returns were filed by the end of April. This year there were 2,000, which the state comptroller’s office concedes is a “substantial decline.” On those missing returns, the government collects 6.25% of nothing. Instead of the state coffers gaining the extra $106 million the politicians predicted, millionaires paid $100 million less in taxes than they did last year — even at higher rates.

Way to go Maryland!  Yet another example of higher taxes yielding smaller returns!   How many jobs went out with them, I wonder?

Then, I covered it again, when even more damage was documented…

Three years later, the damage is even more pronounced…

A new report says wealthy Maryland residents may be moving out due to recent tax hikes – a finding that is sure to escalate the battle over taxing the American rich.

The study, by the anti-tax group Change Maryland, says that a net 31,000 residents left the state between 2007 and 2010, the tenure of a “millionaire’s tax” pushed through by Gov. Martin O’Malley. The tax, which expired in 2010, in imposed a rate of 6.25 percent on incomes of more than $1 million a year.

The Change Maryland study found that the tax cost Maryland $1.7 billion in lost tax revenues. A county-by-county analysis by Change Maryland also found that the state’s wealthiest counties also had some of the largest population outflows.

Ah, higher taxes means less revenue.  When will they ever learn?  Never, actually.  It’s more about appealing to class warfare advocates, and punishing success, than collecting revenue.  If any of them still think reciepts will grow with higher taxes is either stupid, or intentionally stupid.

But fear not, liberals, I’m sure that someone else will be blamed.  It’s the Marxist way!

Project Veritas Catches Democratic Group, Battleground Texas, Illegally Copying Personal Information From Voters

Share

Project Veritas has done it again.  They have added Battleground Texas, a democrat affiliated group, to their long list of democrat organizations caught in illegal behaviors.  Apparently, Battleground Texas was caught talking about how they violate Texas law on a regular basis.  Here is some more…

Battleground Texas Field Organizer Jennifer Longoria was caught on camera multiple times making statements such as, “So every time we register someone to vote we keep their name and number.”

Doing so, however, is illegal. According to the Secretary of State, it is unlawful to transcribe, copy, or otherwise record a telephone number furnished on a voter registration application.

If Battleground Texas is willing to unlawfully transcribe and use people’s private data what other laws are they currently or willing to break to elect Wendy Davis and turn Texas blue?” asked James O’Keefe, President of Project Veritas.

To turn Texas “blue,” Battleground Texas will do what every liberal group does-they’ll cheat.  Here is the video…

Trenton, NJ Mayor Convicted of Bribery, Fraud, and Extortion: He’s a Democrat

Share

It appears that Trenton Mayor, Tony Mack, is looking at some serious jail time.  He was recently convicted of bribery, fraud, and extortion.  The report fails to mention his party affiliation.  Here is that report.  I Own the World has more…

Of course, had he been a Republican, his party affiliation would have been mentioned in every other sentence if that report.  However, since he’s a democrat, it isn’t mentioned at all.

Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis, Had a Restraining Order Against Her in 2003

Wendy Davis, that human symbol of baby killing, has more and more junk against her piling up.  We’ve covered that her campaign has been attacking her disabled opponent.  We’ve seen that she was so loyal to her marriage that she didn’t leave until her ex paid off her education.   As you can see, she is a good quality human being gold digger, that his the his aspiration of making sure womyn are free can kill babies as often as they please.  But, for the latest, we find that a restraining order was needed against her in 2003…

Wendy Davis has been blaming Greg Abbott for all of her woes, lately, but it was her ex-husband who talked to the Dallas Morning News reporter. He is also the guy who asked a  Texas District Court to issue a temporary restraining order against her in 2003.

Among the activities she was to be “immediately restrained from” doing was, “using illegal drugs or consuming alcohol within 24 hours before or during the period of possession of or access to the child.” First on the list was, “communicating with the petitioner in person, by telephone or in writing, using vulgar, profane, obscene, indecent language, or in a course or offensive manner.” Second on the list was “threatening petitioner…”

They might simplified the restraining order by simply banning her from being a liberal, but I guess legal documents need to be that specific.

I could go out of my way to insult this woman, but she does that well enough on her own.

And, yes, I let this go at the time, and had to come back to it.  It needs discussing because the Democrats would (and still might) push this candidate for all they are worth.  Frankly, they don’t care about her lack or integrity.  Then again, integrity might be a significant obstacle to a democrat politician,
