Vote in the RNC 2016 Presidential Straw Poll

vote-smart-button
The Republican National Committee has released a 2016 presidential straw poll asking users to choose the three names they would most like to see as the Republican nominee. They’ve presented the names of 32 potential nominees with a write-in at the end of the survey.

The names listed mostly won’t come as a surprise. Listed are people such as Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Allen West and of course the main stream media and establishment darling Chris Christi of New Jersey. A couple of the names on their list did make me take a second glance, like Condoleezza Rice and former US Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton….wait – what?

As of today, according to  Real Clear Politics, several polls show Governor Christi is leading by a +4.0 spread.  So here’s your chance folks, to let the establishment know we’re fed up with big government and it’s time to restore the proper balance of power.  America isn’t broken; it is Washington that is broken.

Leave a comment below and let me know who  you would like to see as the Republican nominee in the 2016 presidential election?

Speaker Boehner, install a select committee on Benghazi now!

ribbon_1109

Written by Allen West:

I’ve joined family members of the victims of the Benghazi terrorist attack and more than 70 fellow conservative and military leaders in sending a letter to House Speaker John Boehner demanding that he install a select committee to once and for all get the answers and the truth regarding the tragic events of September 11, 2012.

There is widespread support for a select committee to get to the bottom of disturbing questions surrounding the attack, as H.Res. 36 has 178 cosponsors. Yet Speaker of the House John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor refuse to bring it to the House floor for a vote. You have to wonder, is there something they know that they prefer not come to light?

We can no longer accept silence, obfuscation and inaction on this subject.

You can read the letter here.   Please feel free to download and circulate it widely.

Mark Levin: If You Lay One Hand On WWII Vets, I’ll Bring Half A Million People There!

wwIImemorial-300x218On his radio show last night Mark Levin tells Barack Obama that if his administration “lays one damned hand on one of those World War II Veterans at that memorial, I’ll bring half a million people to that memorial!” Levin said Americans from all over the country will “march on Washington against your tyranny.”

MARK LEVIN: I’m going to tell you folks something. I want to say this loud and clear to the people on Capitol Hill who are listening, to this administration — you lay one damn hand on one of those World War II vets at that memorial, I’ll bring half a million people to that damn memorial! You got that?

I’m sitting here stewing thinking about this. Playing these damn games? You will ignite a movement in this country like you’ve never seen before. The biker patriot army, veterans from all over the country — every single war and battle in this country. Republican, Democrat, Independent, whatever.

I’ll be damned if one president, with his feet up on the desk in the Oval Office, with his smirk on his face, looking at his golf cart. I’ll be damned if this president or anybody else is going to shutdown that World War II memorial. Period.

These men are in their 80s and 90s. So let me repeat. You lay one hand on one of those men and arrest them for going to their memorial, which they fought for, which was not paid by you, damn it. It was paid by the American people.

We will come out of every town and city in this nation. We will come out of every county and both coasts, both borders, and we will march on Washington against your tyranny. You’ve been warned. You have been warned.

Oh, shut down the government. Shove it! Stop playing games with the American people. You know, we’re not all losers. We’re not all on the public dole. We’re not all enthralled with Obama and the cult of personality. We’re tired of being lectured to, we’re tired of being put down.

Leonard Pitts Addresses 9/11 Terrorists (September 12, 2001)

I’ve reposted this article by Pulitzer Prize winner Leonard Pitts, year after year, since it first appeared in the Miami Herald on September 12, 2001. These are words we should never forget….

iwo-9-11-final

It’s my job to have something to say. They pay me to provide words that help make sense of that which

troubles the American soul. But in this moment of airless shock when hot tears sting disbelieving eyes, the only thing I can find to say, the only words that seem to fit, must be addressed to the unknown author of this suffering.

 You monster. You beast. You unspeakable bastard.

What lesson did you hope to teach us by your coward’s attack on our World Trade Center, our

Pentagon, us? What was it you hoped we would learn? Whatever it was, please know that you failed.

Did you want us to respect your cause? You just damned your cause.

Did you want to make us fear? You just steeled our resolve.

Did you want to tear us apart? You just brought us together.


Let me tell you about my people. We are a vast and quarrelsome

family, a family rent by racial, social, political and class division, but a family nonetheless.

We’re frivolous, yes, capable of expending tremendous emotional energy on pop cultural minutiae — a singer’s revealing dress, a ball team’s misfortune, a cartoon mouse.  

We’re wealthy, too, spoiled by the ready availability of trinkets and material goods, and maybe because of that, we walk through life with a certain sense of blithe entitlement. 

 We are fundamentally decent, though — peace-loving and compassionate. We struggle to know the right thing and to do it.
And we are, the overwhelming majority of us, people of faith, believers in a just and loving God.

Some people — you, perhaps — think that any or all of this makes us weak. You’re mistaken.
We are not weak. Indeed, we are strong in ways that cannot be measured by arsenals.

Yes, we’re in pain now. We are in mourning and we are in shock.

We’re still grappling with the unreality of the awful thing you did, still working to make ourselves understand that this isn’t a

special effect from some Hollywood blockbuster, isn’t the plot development from a Tom Clancy

novel. Both in terms of the awful scope of their ambition and the probable final death toll, your

attacks are likely to go down as the worst acts of terrorism in the history of the United States and,

probably, the history of the world. You’ve bloodied us as we have never been bloodied before.

But there’s a gulf of difference between making us bloody and making us fall. This is the lesson

Japan was taught to its bitter sorrow the last time anyone hit us this hard, the last time anyone

brought us such abrupt and monumental pain.

When roused, we are righteous in our outrage, terrible in our force.
When provoked by this level of barbarism, we will bear any suffering, pay any cost, go to any length, in the pursuit of justice.

 I tell you this without fear of contradiction. I know my people, as you, I think, do not. What I know reassures me.
It also causes me to tremble with dread of the future.

 In the days to come, there will be recrimination and accusation, fingers pointing to determine whose failure allowed this to happen

and what can be done to prevent it from happening again.

There will be heightened security, misguided talk of revoking basic freedoms.
We’ll go forward from this moment sobered, chastened, sad. But determined, too. Unimaginably determined.

You see, the steel in us is not always readily apparent. That aspect of our character is seldom

understood by people who don’t know us well. On this day, the family’s bickering is put on hold.

As Americans we will weep, as Americans we will mourn, and as Americans, we will rise in defense of all that we cherish.


So I ask again: What was it you hoped to teach us?
It occurs to me that maybe you just wanted us to know the depths of your hatred. If that’s the case, consider the message received.

And take this message in exchange: You don’t know my people. You don’t know what we’re capable of.
You don’t know what you just started. But you’re about to learn.

Prosecutors: Fort Hood mass murderer was on jihad

Undated photo of terrorist, Maj. Nidal Hasan

Undated photo of terrorist, Maj. Nidal Hasan

Why is motive not an element in this trial? What kind of murder trial doesn’t discuss motive? Is it not an element in the trial because it shows how much the Obama administration has been lying to the American people about this jihad attack? “Prosecutors: Hasan was on jihad,” by Sig Christenson for MySa.com, August 2 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

FORT HOOD — Prosecutors Friday likened Maj. Nidal Hasanto a suicide bomber, saying he carefully researched the issue of going on jihad before an attack that left 13 people dead and 32 wounded, all but two of them soldiers.

It was the first time the government has made the allegation or cited evidence that would support the claim that Hasan sought to martyr himself at the end of the massacre.

“We believe that just like a suicide bomber, Major Hasan had no intention of leaving 5/11 alive,” Col. Steve Henricks, one of three prosecutors, said, referring to the day of the attack.

An American born of Palestinian immigrants, Hasan has told a court here that he was the gunman in the Nov. 5, 2009 rampage, and that he hoped to stop U.S. soldiers from killing Taliban insurgents, their leader Mullah Mohammad Omar and innocent Afghan women and children.

The day is often called “5/11” in the Fort Hood community.

Prosecutors have charged Hasan with 13 counts of premeditated murder. He faces another 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the worst shooting of its kind at an American military installation.

Until now, the prosecution has avoided stating a motive, but on Friday asked the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, to allow them to present witnesses and evidence that would show Hasan not only studied jihad but argued for it while pursing a master’s degree, and that he claimed U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were not justified.

State Rep Monique Davis (D-Chicago) “It’s the police killing some of these kids”

 

State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago)

State Rep. Monique Davis
(D-Chicago)

An Illinois state representative has publicly raised the possibility that Chicago police officers might be the ones responsible for the unsolved murders of black youths in Chicago.

State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) was interviewed about Chicago crime Tuesday on WCHB-AM in Detroit.

Listen Here

“I’m going to tell you what some suspicions have been, and people have whispered to me: they’re not sure that black people are shooting all of these children,”

“There’s some suspicion–and I don’t want to spread this, but I’m just going to tell you what I’ve been hearing–they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.”

When WBBM asked Davis if she thinks it’s possible that police are killing children, she said, “I don’t know. I don’t know that they are, and I don’t know that they aren’t, since no one’s been arrested. We don’t know who’s doing it.”

Davis called a news conference at her South Side legislative office Friday to says that, while some of her constituents believe that, she does not, nor does she believes she owes anyone an apology.

“My community believes that,” she said. “Should I apologize for my community’s beliefs?”
.
“There’s some suspicion–and I don’t want to spread this, but….” But you did,and under the guise of concern for your community- despicable.

In a July 19 press release, Davis attempted to smooth over hard feelings by praising the Chicago police for their efforts, but she stood by her statements on the Detroit radio program.

“I’m not a detective, I’m not an investigator,” Davis said. “I said my community, many people in my community, based upon their experiences and their knowledge, believe it is possible that some of these murders are committed by our finest. Now, we can’t say that doesn’t happen.”

So black youths are killing other black youths in record numbers. The gang culture absolutely has a “snitches get stitches” mentality,
and she’s surprised that no one’s fingered anyone else in these murders?
She doesn’t know or understand her own organic demographic but feels compelled to comment on it.

Monique Davis is part of the problem, and that problem is race baiting. We’ve seen a lot of pot stirring recently, from the not so Reverend like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and political activist AG Eric Holder. Davis is absurd, inflammatory and insulting.

URGENT ACTION ALERT — Urge North Carolina Gov. to Sign Anti-Sharia Bill HB 522

There have been more than 50 cases in 23 states in which judges have applied foreign law, depriving people of their constitutional rights. No Sharia Law In America!

There have been more than 50 cases in 23 states in which judges have applied foreign law, depriving people of their constitutional rights.
No Sharia Law In America!

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is facing a tough decision – whether to veto a bill that prohibiting judges from considering foreign law, including Islamic Sharia law. Although there shouldn’t be a need for this law, sadly there is. There have been more than 50 cases in 23 states in which judges have applied foreign law, depriving people of their constitutional rights. Often women and children wind up the victims when Sharia law is applied. This is without a doubt unconstitutional, but that hasn’t stopped liberal judges.

North Carolina Muslims hope they can persuade the Republican governor to veto the bill, according to The State.com
Muslims oppose the effort because they think it is motivated by intolerance and say it could infringe on other religious groups. .
But others say measures banning the use of “foreign laws” are targeting Sharia law, not other religions – Nonsense!

On U.S. soil, we must all embrace the laws of this country via the Constitution, and not demand enforcement of rules and regulations left in other cultures. Many Sharia law problems in the United States involve cases of women being beaten by their Muslim husbands and judges ruling that because the men were not accustomed to U.S. laws against spousal abuse, they cannot be convicted.

CAIR sent out a national “action alert” urging Muslims to call and email McCrory to ask him to veto the bill. Defending Sharia law from U.S. restrictions is one of CAIR’s top agenda items, according to its March 2012 statement announcing a “community toolkit to challenge ‘Anti-Sharia’ bills.”


WE MUST TAKE ACTION TODAY!

If McCrory signs the bill, North Carolina would become the seventh state to have an anti-Sharia law, according to TheState.com, joining Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, South Dakota, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. Alabama lawmakers approved a similar constitutional amendment, which will be on the ballot for voters to consider in 2014.

alert17                                                                                                                                                      

As Americans, especially Americans living in North Carolina, we MUST take action now. House Bill 522, titled Foreign Laws/Protect Constitutional Rights,  has been ratified and sent to Governor McCrory for signature as of July 26, 2013.
Please take a moment to email Governor Pat McCrory through
this email form on the Governor’s web page  asking him to sign HB 522  The Anti-Sharia Bill.

We MUST let him know that as Americans we say,“NO FOREIGN LAWS IN AMERICA!”
Please be respectful when contacting the Governor, but make sure he knows you support HB522.
