Bill Clinton’s mentor from Arkansas, J. William Fulbright, was a proud segregationist! And Bill Clinton signed a proclamation authorizing the Confederate flag to fly over the statehouse in Arkansas. I’ve got the proclamation right there in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers.
Where’d the Republicans get involved in this? But there they are, in full blame! ~ Rush
Rush Limbaugh gave listeners a history lesson on the Confederate flag flying on the grounds of the Statehouse in South Carolina. Limbaugh noted that the flag is an issue because of Democrats, not Republicans.
Folks, do you realize the Confederate flag flies because of the Democrat Party? Do people even care anymore about truth, objective truth, ontological certitude? – Rush Limbaugh
“There’s a reason why that Confederate flag flies over the Statehouse in South Carolina,” he added. And that reason, he said, is one man — a well-known Democrat named Ernest “Fritz” Hollings, a former U.S. Senator who once complained that there’s “too much consuming going on out there.”
In an article at the Boston Herald, Howie Carr also noted that it was Hollings who first put the flag on the Statehouse in 1962. Moreover, Limbaugh said, it was a conservative Republican governor who first tried to get the flag removed from that building.
Newsbusters noted that aside from Fox News, most of the broadcast media never mentioned the entire history of the South Carolina flag. Two networks mentioned the flag, but never said it was a Democrat who put it there
The WH ‘alleges’ it was unclassified data, sure it was. obama’s schedule, etc. But I have to wonder if it was Hillary. Her and Cheryl and who knows who, emailed the Chinese donors of her foundation.. She has a long standing relationship with the Chinese.
Then there’s her reset button with Russia and obama’s promise off mike, to do more for Putin once he’s reelected.
Ben Rhodes, President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser to CNN:
“We do not believe that our classified systems were compromised”
But that’s contradictory to the the White House has said the breach only ever affected an unclassified system, that description belies the seriousness of the intrusion.
Rhodes JUST told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in an interview on “The Situation Room.” :
“We’re constantly updating our security measures on our unclassified system but we’re frankly told to act as if we need not put information that’s sensitive on that system,” he said. “In other words, if you’re going to do something classified, you have to do it on one email system, one phone system.
Enter the recent Russian hack into the ‘State Dept. system. To get to the White House, the hackers first broke into the State Department, investigators believe.
The State Department computer system has been bedeviled by signs that despite efforts to lock them out, the Russian hackers have been able to reenter the system. One official says the Russian hackers have “owned” the State Department system for months and it is not clear the hackers have been fully eradicated from the system.
The revelations about the State Department hacks also come amid controversy over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business during her time in office. Critics say her private server likely was even less safe than the State system. The Russian breach is believed to have come after Clinton departed State.
But hackers have long made Clinton and her associates targets.
The website The Smoking Gun first reported in 2013 that a hacker known as Guccifer had broken into the AOL email of Sidney Blumenthal, a friend and advisor to the Clintons, and published emails Blumenthal sent to Hillary Clinton’s private account. The emails included sensitive memos on foreign policy issues and were the first public revelation of the existence of Hillary Clinton’s private email address now at the center of controversy:
The address is no longer in use.
But what did she give up before she wiped it out? This on the heels Hillary will announce her candidacy for said WH. To me the WH, Clinton and Snowden all made this happen. Heck let’s throw in obama, Putin working with Snowden. Why not? Do you trust any of them? I sure don’t…~JP
The first video is from PJ Media:A Guy Walked Into a Muslim Bakery and Ordered a Gay Wedding Cake…What do you think happened next?
Steven Crowder went into a bunch of Muslim bakeries in Dearborn, Michigan, and tried to order a “gay” wedding cake. Many of the bakers politely declined and sent him to other bakeries, including one man who tried to send him up the street to Kroger.
Oddly enough, we haven’t seen any mainstream media reporters ambushing unsuspecting Muslim bakers and demanding in McCarthyesque fashion, “Are you now, or have you ever been a homosexual hater?”
Could it be because, as Crowder notes in the video, “You’re still killed in virtually every Muslim country for being gay.”
The next set of videos is from a serious and surprising source, Theodore Shoebat…
Say that “Bestiality Is Wrong” or “Polygamy Is Wrong” and it’s not considered hate speech, but if you have the opinion that “Gay Marriage Is Wrong” the whole world jumps up and down screaming “racism” “bigotry” and “hatred”.
This is becoming the politically-correct norm, but no matter what one argues, this is suppressing free speech.
No one targeted pro-gay bakeries, but gay activists target Christian bakeries:
This experiment proves beyond doubt that the gay agenda is not just about their freedom to practice a sexual orientation, but the suppression of free speech…
To make our case we provided 3 video clips, the third one is a video showing homosexual activists in Ireland used the state to force a Christian bakery to make a cake with the slogan “Support Gay Marriage” for a pro-gay marriage event, but he refused which added a tremendous loss to his business. Several Christian bakeries were sued in the United States with several who lost their businesses and we said :
Enough is enough.
So Shoebat.com decided to call some 13 prominent pro-gay bakers in a row. Each one denied us the right to have “Gay Marriage Is Wrong” on a cake and even used deviant insults and obscenities against us.
It was all recorded. It will stun the American people as to how militant and intolerant the homosexual bakers were.
Christian Man Asks Gay Bakeries To Make Anti-Gay Cake (Part 1):
Irish Bakery Refuses to Make Gay Cake – Could Face Legal Action”:
Jul 8, 2014 ~ Ashers Baking Company declined an order from a gay rights activist, asking for cake featuring the Sesame Street puppets, Bert and Ernie.
The customer also wanted the cake to feature the logo of a Belfast-based campaign group called Queerspace.
The bakery firm could face legal action from the Equality Commission.
Here is our point. A Christian making a homosexual cake with “Support Gay Marriage” goes against his faith and a homosexual putting “Gay Marriage Is Wrong” goes against his faith as well. Now of course we honor their right to say no, this is not the issue, but what about honoring the Christian right to also say no?
The big lie of the homosexual agenda is this: They claim that they are only fighting for equality and tolerance.
“The goal of Alabama should be to be more like Texas, not to be more like New York, where taxes keep going up year after year, and jobs and businesses keep leaving,” Moore quipped.
Alabama Policy Institute (API), Heritage Foundation Chief Economist Steve Moore says Governor Bentley’s proposed tax increases are the wrong way to increase revenue for the state, and in fact will only serve to drive businesses and workers—the real sources of growth—away from the state:
“When states raise their taxes, especially when they raise their tax rates, that it actually leads to jobs leaving the state, it leads to higher unemployment, it leads to income decline in the state,” Moore said. “The problem with the Alabama budget right now is that the state is not growing fast enough, not enough jobs are being created. If you raise taxes on the business creators and on the workers, and on the investors, you’re going to get less businesses and you’re going to get less workers, and less investors. Under that kind of circumstance, you’re actually going to have higher unemployment, so I don’t get the logic behind raising taxes to try to balance the budget.”
… to push tax hikes
What is it that guys named Ed Henry rock?
Yes Virginia, or liberals, we do call out our own. Much unlike your group!
In a bombshell interview on the Matt Murphy Show Wednesday morning, State Rep. Ed Henry (R-Hartselle) said he believes Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley was disingenuous with voters by claiming he did not realize he would feel compelled to raise taxes until after winning re-election. The sophomore legislator also said the governor has resorted to using “strong-arm tactics” in an attempt to force the legislature to support his impending proposal to raise taxes.
“I knew when we were working on last year’s budget that this coming year’s budget was going to be worse,” said Henry. “Now, I’m a lowly House member. If I could see the writing on the wall, then I have to believe that our chief executive officer of the state knew what was coming. And I believe, had he projected a year ago that these were his intentions, he probably would have had more competition in a Republican primary. There’s no way he didn’t see this coming.”
Murphy asked Henry about a story Yellowhammer broke Tuesday morning in which lawmakers, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution, said the governor was threatening to withhold infrastructure and community development funding from Districts whose legislators do not support his tax proposal.
“The governor has certain tools in his shed that he can work with to strong-arm legislators,” explained Henry. “Governors throughout the decades have used them. –
“I did not get elected to office to continue the status quo. That’s the reason our country is in the shape it’s in. The reason our state is in the state that it’s in is because people — legislators, politicians — believed they could go to Montgomery, go to Washington, do whatever they want as far as passing themselves pay raises, tax increases, but as long as they bring home the bacon, bring home the projects to their local area, they can do anything they want to in Montgomery. In 2010 we changed all that… I was not sent there to bring home the bacon.”
Yellowhammer asked a spokesperson for the governor if he maintains that he did not know prior to winning re-election how bad the budgeting situation was going to be, and therefore did not realize he would feel compelled to push tax increases. We also asked if the governor disputes accusations from Henry and other legislators that he is using “strong-arm” tactics, such as withholding road projects from Districts whose legislators do not support his tax proposal.
He has been dumped on, but it turns out the instructions he gave to his probate judges was correct. Ginny” Granade (Grenade), the same judge who ruled Alabama’s Sanctity of Marriage amendment unconstitutional, ruled Mobile County probate judge Don Davis must issue same-sex marriage licenses. This applied to ONLY Mobile! Not all Alabama counties.
We normally stay away from social issues, because emotion will not override legality, as is evidenced here. We are however interested in HOW the 14th amendment can trump the 10th amendment. And how can the SCOTUS deem gay rights as a protected class. And how, as if in Judge Moore’s case, can religion be ignored?
Also we did not care for how Cuomo, a rabid leftist, could run over Judge Moore as he did. I understand Cuomo is an attorney, but he tries to tell a Judge how things run in his state. Bad form Chris. Judge Moore does give him a go in this video. Although being CNN, all MsM is applauding Chris for his brow beating, constant interruption of Moore. As has become norm for MsM they only showed snippets of the following interview. Editing it to make Judge Moore look foolish. Classic leftist tactics as you’ll see.
At 16:53 Chris shows his non-belief of God when Judge Moore states ‘Our laws come from God’. Chris indignantly states ‘Our laws do NOT come from God, your honor, they come from man and you know that! Shove atheism down our throats Chris.Then he empathetically states ‘Our Rights do NOT come from God’.
REMEMBER that clause in Our Declaration of Independence which states that our rights come from God, are unalienable, and that the purpose of civil government – the federal government – is to secure the Rights GOD gave us.
This horses arse then says citing God is not a rational basis. Saying as if disgusted,said Judge Moore is putting God before the laws of man. Well, Chris, JUST like in the case of Catholic entities fighting abortion in obamacare, the very same religious precept should apply to a Christian Nation. That IS what this nation was founded on. That IS consistently cited by those brave mean who wrote the ‘Constitution’. THAT piece of paper your ilk has been hell bent on shredding. That piece of paper IS man’s law!
Yes, friends, Chris Cuomo had me seeing red. Spitting mad.
What Chris does not get and neglects to mention this one judge’s ‘opinion’ was directed to AG Luther Strange. In responding to a decision by the Supreme Court not to stay two federal judge’s rulings striking down Alabama’s ban on gay marriage, Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange suggested that probate judges do not have to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples.
This case was so confused by this one judge, ‘Grenade’ It turns out to truly be status quo. She cannot rule any other county by the one the case was in, Mobile. She cannot dictate to our other counties. The Supreme Court, our Governor nor Luther Strange have stated that they won’t force counties to do so nor go with condoning it. But do we really expect the knowledge or Truth from MSM? ~ JP
We ask you to watch entire interview and would appreciate your comments.
A lot of people talk, but when it’s time to show up, their tune changes’
Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, will be speaker of the House for the next two years, but one of the Republicans who challenged him for the post says it’s only because a number of GOP members failed to come through in their promised opposition to Boehner.
While being quick to admit the fight for the direction of the party is over for the moment in the House, he’s disappointed in how the GOP got to the results in Tuesday’s House vote.
“A lot of people talk, but when it’s time to show up, their tune changes and I think that was evident today, but I am very proud of the people that did stand up, the 24 that went in public and stated where they stood on the leadership,” said Yoho, who added that an unidentified number of Republicans failed to follow through on their word during the vote.
“I don’t want to talk about any specific members, but there are members that said, ‘Well, if you hit 20 votes, we’ll jump on and vote with you, but if you don’t have that many we’re not going to,’” he said. “When we hit [20 votes], you can’t find them.”
Yoho said Republicans who are frustrated with the present leadership but unwilling to oppose it have little grounds to complain over the next two years.
Ted Yoho says kicking members off committees for their speaker votes is “something I would assume Vladimir Putin would do.”
“A lot of people like to complain, gripe and moan about how bad things are,” Yoho said. “If you’re going to complain about it, do something about it. So the people that have been complaining and griping about Mr. Boehner and the lack of leadership and all that, they had a chance today to change that. They didn’t. So from this point forward for the next two years, this should be a moot point. Nobody should complain. We just need to get down to pass the best legislation we can.”
Bill de Blasio today scolded the officers who turned their backs on him during services for two slain NYPD officers for showing disrespect to the mourning families. De Blasio was asked about the officers who turned their backs to protest him specifically at the service for Officer Rafael Ramos and, despite a warning from their commissioner to not do it agin, turning their backs again at the service for Officer Wenjian Liu.
The mayor said he didn’t think it was appropriate, nor “the right and decent thing to do,” considering the back-turning takes away from the officers being honored and their mourning families:
“Those individuals who took certain actions this last week––or last two weeks, really––they were disrespectful to the families involved. That’s the bottom line. They were disrespectful to the families who had lost their loved one. And I can’t understand why anyone would do such a thing in a context like that.”
De Blasio added it was also disrespectful to the people of New York.
The head of the rank-and-file police union, which is negotiating a contract with the city, turned his back on the mayor at a hospital the day of the killings. The act was imitated by hundreds of officers standing last week outside Ramos’ funeral who turned their backs toward a giant TV screen as de Blasio’s remarks were being broadcast.
