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.

According to The Examiner:

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

Streamed live on May 3, 2015

The first annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest will be held on Sunday, May 3, at the Curtis Culwell Center, 5-7 pm, CENTRAL TIME, in the Dallas suburb of Garland, Texas. It will be hosted by human rights and free-speech activist Pamela Geller and her organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI).

The exhibit will feature images of Islam’s prophet in both historical and contemporary settings, showcasing the top 200 artistic renditions that were submitted for consideration. The winner will be announced at the event, and a $10,000 prize will be awarded.

The keynote speaker will be Geert Wilders, a member of The Netherlands Parliament. Wilders led the fight for de-Islamization in his country, which has faced many of the same problems with Muslim assimilation as have other European countries, including the advent of controversial “no-go zones” inaccessible to non-Muslims, including public officials.

Fort Hood Shooting

In honor of our family friend and her unborn child, Francheska “Cheeka” Velez:

Tomorrow the US Army will present Purple Hearts to those injured & killed by terrorism at Ft Hood. Why it matters: @SenTedCruz

Army Secretary John McHugh announced in February the service would award the medals, calling the gesture “an appropriate recognition of their service and sacrifice.” While opponents of President Obama predict he will attempt to garner credit for this “change of heart and the water-carrying news media will help him, it was the Republicans in the U.S. Congress who got these heroes their medals and benefits,” said former Naval officer and federal law enforcement official Charles Collingwood.

Special thanks to The Blaze for producing a moving documentary to tell this story:

Waiting For Justice

The victims say they feel abandoned by the U.S. government and by their military. The Pentagon last year fought efforts to award the Purple Heart out of concern that doing so could harm Hasan’s chance at receiving a fair trial.

U.S. and Iranian officials have described last week’s framework for a deal to slow Iran’s nuclear weapons program with disturbingly different details. According to a Times of Israel report Tuesday, the U.S. account also differs significantly with a key ally – France.

The proposed deal lets Iran continue to develop use advanced centrifuges which could allow for uranium enrichment as much as 20 times faster than the Islamic Republic’s current technology. After 12 years, Iran can actually resume enriching uranium, which the newspaper reported “would enable Iran to more rapidly accumulate the highly enriched uranium needed to build nuclear weapons, accelerating its breakout time to the bomb.” The source is an internal French government fact-sheet which the newspaper was able to review, but which has not been released publicly.

That timeline, however, dovetails with an acknowledgment President Obama made this week in an interview with National Public Radio. Iran’s “break-out” time to make a bomb could shrink “almost down to zero” by year 13 after any final deal is negotiated, Obama said.

Israeli analyst Ehud Yaari identified six terms in the proposed agreement in which the United States and Iran have offered different assessments. Among them: Iran believes it stands to secure immediate relief from crippling economic sanctions, while the U.S. says that relief comes in phases as various commitments are met. In addition, Iran believes it can continue to use the Fordo underground uranium enrichment plant for developing centrifuges, while the U.S. says no enrichment could take place there for 15 years.

Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz briefed reporters Monday on recommendations which could lead to “a more reasonable agreement.” The Fordow plant must be shut down entirely, inspectors must be able to make unannounced visits “anywhere, anytime” and development of new centrifuges must be prohibited, he said.

Although Israel prefers a diplomatic solution to the issue, Steinitz acknowledged, it was still reserving the right to take military action against Iran should it be necessary.

“It’s still on the table, it’s going to remain on the table,” he said. “It’s our right and duty to decide how to defend ourselves, especially if our national security and even very existence are under threat.”

Saudi Arabia is one of the 10 countries in the world where gay sex is punishable by death.

So where is the Gay community on this?!

cook

George Will blasted Apple CEO Tim Cook Tuesday on “Special Report” for his continued critique of the Indiana religious freedom law while he does business with Saudi Arabia.

The syndicated columnist told host Bret Baier that while Cook believes Indiana is a “horrible” place, he opened up Apple operations in the Middle Eastern nation which continues to persecute individuals for being gay. Will sarcastically added that “the selective indignation” on Cook’s part is “wonderful.”

There’s nothing more tiresome in modern American life than the indignation sweepstakes we get in all the time to see who can be most angry about this and that. Tim Cook as was mentioned, the CEO of Apple… thinks Indiana is a horrible place. He opened marketing and retailing operations in Saudi Arabia two months before a man was sentenced to 450 lashes for being gay. The selective indignation is itself wonderful. – George Will

I signed the letter to Iran. But you know what? The message I was sending was to you.

The message was to President Obama that we want you to obey the law. We — we want you to understand the separation of powers.

Sen. Paul Questions Secretary Kerry on Authorization for War with ISIS Mar 11, 2015:

Madison wrote that, “History demonstrates what the Constitution supposes, that the executive branch is most prone to war, and therefore, the Constitution, with studied care, vested that power in the legislature.”

Madison also went on to further write that, “The separation of powers would be protected by pitting the ambitions of one branch against the ambitions of another.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Rand Paul today attended the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing to question Secretary of State John Kerry regarding the Obama Administration’s proposed authorization for use of military force (AUMF) against the Islamic State, known as ISIS. During the hearing, Sen. Paul emphasized the need for the Executive Branch to abide by the U.S. Constitution and seek approval from the Legislative Branch on matters of war, and reiterated that Congress must carefully consider the long-term ramifications of passing an overly broad AUMF. A video and transcript of the exchange can be found below.

I can tell you, I’m not particularly happy with being lectured to by the administration about the Constitution. This is an administration who I believe has trampled the Constitution at many turns.

This is an administration that seeks to legislate when that is not in their purview, whether it be immigration, whether it be health care or whether it now be a war that’s been going for eight months without congressional authorization.

This administration is in direct defiance of what Senator Obama ran on and he was elected upon. He said, “No country should go to war without the authority of Congress unless under imminent attack.”
