Last Friday, at 3:06 PM, the Washington Post published an article destined to signify the watershed moment in the unending war over voter identification.
The article, written by Jesse Richman and David Earnest, two Associate Professors at Old Dominion University, provides compelling evidence supporting the necessity of voter identification and more than this – supporting the necessity of verification of citizenship prior to granting voter registration.
It would appear that unnamed Obama administration officials, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and their media cheerleaders have coordinated a narrative with regard to the Ferguson, MO Police Department. According to CNN, “government officials familiar with the ongoing discussions between local, state and federal officials” are saying Police Chief Thomas Jackson is expected to step down “as part of the effort by city officials to reform the Police Department.” The proverbial fly in the ointment? Jackson and Mayor James Knowles deny any such plan exists.
Sweden Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom’s announcement on 30 October that Sweden has recognized the State of Palestine elicited a response from Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman that will surely go down as one of the most memorable diplomatic quotes of 2014:
I am unsure how a woman who has never started a business, who is famous for being married to Bill Clinton and who has had a fairly undistinguished career as a public servant could be so wise about business matters, but I tip my hat to her. People scoffed when she dared to speak the truth earlier this week that: “Business does not create jobs.” [sic] But I am a believer.
On July 24, 1969, the astronauts from Apollo 11 returned home aboard the Command Module Columbia just before dawn local time, in the Pacific Ocean 2,660 kilometers (1,440 nautical miles) east of Wake Island, 380 kilometers (210 nautical miles) south of Johnston Atoll, and 24 kilometers (13 nautical miles) from the recovery ship, U.S.S. Hornet.” Upon reaching the Command Module, divers provided the astronauts with Biological Isolation Garments (BIGs) which were worn until they reached isolation facilities on board the U.S.S. Hornet.
The population of Europe had outrun the food supply in the early 1300s, and in a few years, the poor were eating cats, dogs, and other animals. Some say they even ate their own children! People were dying, but rather slowly. Bubonic plague (Black Death) would prove to be more efficient and quicker than famine, much quicker.
In an act of stupendous desperation, Mary Landrieu has stomped heavily into a pile of Obama (chickens#it). She pulled the race card, though tattered and torn from her repertoire and slammed it onto the table like a kid playing “Battle” or “War”. You know the kid’s card game where the highest card dropped takes the hand and you power slam cards to the table when both cards match. It could also be looked at as a game of “Liar’s Poker”.
If you read the polls, you know Mary Landrieu is in trouble. However, I’m willing to bet that the internal polling looks even worse, total panic has set in, and she’s looking for a scapegoat to explain her failure. How else can you explain her bizarre decision to tell the people of her state - whose votes she so desperately needs - that they’re a bunch of sexists and racists?
Fast and Furious? No problem. Stonewalling the IRS investigation? What do you mean? Strongarming states to drop their voter ID laws by tossing around the race card? Hey, it’s what he does. But even Eric Holder has one regret, however self-serving it may be. Issuing a subpoena for Fox News reporter James Rosen’s e-mails, and labeling him a “criminal co-conspirator” in an investigation concerning North Korea, might have gone a weeeeeeeeee bit too far, ya think?
Yehudah Glick has spent the better part of the last 20 years championing the right of Jews to pray on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem – Judaism’s holiest site. On Wednesday night, the Palestinians sent a hit man to Jerusalem to kill him.
ThinkProgress recently published a post that begins with a provocative quote from Edward Abbey, “Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.” The post argues that some economic growth is acceptable while other economic growth is bad and does not explain the distinction. The obvious problem is that economic growth and the attendant growth in natural gas, oil, and coal use have led to dramatic improvements in human welfare around the world over the last few decades.
Recent trade deals and high-level cooperation between Russia and China have set off alarm bells in the West as policymakers and oil and gas executives watch the balance of power in global energy markets shift to the East.
Although it is way too early to predict damn near anything about the November 4 election, just a few days from now, it is NEVER too early to speculate about whom Barack Obama will blame should the Democrat Party lose majority control of the US Senate.
NORFOLK, Va.,—In a recently released video, Bishop E.W. Jackson (pictured), Pastor of THE CALLED CHURCH and President of STAND (Staying True to America’s National Destiny) has challenged all Christians, especially Black Christians, to stop voting for candidates who trample their values.
Chaya Zissel Braun was murdered on her first trip back from the Western Wall where the indigenous Jewish population of Israel continues to pray in the shadow of the shrine established there by the Muslim conquerors from which the racist Muslim settlers rain down rocks on the Jewish worshipers.
A humiliated Mayor Annise D. Parker and Houston city attorneys have backed off on their attempt to subpoena sermons from local pastors that dealt with the subject of homosexuality, or specifically, that mentioned the homosexual mayor.
If there’s one Republican Governor who absolutely drives Democrats up the wall, it’s Wisconsin’s Scott Walker. They tried to stop him in 2010, tried to prevent him from salvaging Wisconsin’s economy and, after he succeeded anyway, tried to remove him from office in 2012. However, each time Dems try to stop Walker, they fail - badly. As a result, he’s pretty much become their conservative “public enemy no.1.” ...Now he’s in his third campaign in four years and it looks like the lefties are about to lose - again.
Are we there yet? Are we there yet? No, the election is a few days away and we have not yet secured the U.S. Senate for the Republicans. I know everyone keeps saying it is in the bag, but it is not over until all the votes have been counted.

On October 9th, a Christian man was killed and another seriously injured when suspected Islamic militants attacked them with machetes in Bukoba.
The brutal assault occurred after Dioniz Ng’wandu, a 31-year-old secondary school teacher, and Temistores, 25, attended an early morning prayer meeting with their pastor, Faustine Joseph, and a fourth unnamed man at their church building. After the pastor and the other man left, masked assailants entered the building and attacked the two remaining believers, killing Dioniz and severely injuring Temistores’ left foot. Dioniz leaves behind his wife, Faith, and their two children, four-year-old Michael and two-year-old John. According to Pastor Faustine, church members had been receiving threats from militants who vowed to decrease the number of Christians in the predominantly Muslim area.
