Father Of Soldier Obama Gave Up Terrorists For In Afghanistan: “I Am Working to Free All Guantanamo Prisoners… ameen”
1 Jun 2014 10:50 pm
A Twitter posting by the father of the serviceman released from Taliban captivity Saturday in exchange for five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay is raising deep questions about what exactly the Obama administration did to get Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl out of Afghanistan.
Here’s the tweet, which Robert Bergdahl posted May 28 – before his son’s release – and deleted Saturday, according to Twitchy.com.
Whatever else it might be, “God will repay for the death of every Afghan child, ameen!” doesn’t sound like a rousing call to patriotism.

This “phony scandal” isn’t going away.
With last week’s revelations that a federal watchdog office had sought disciplinary action against rank-and-file IRS employees in three states for illegally pushing the re-election of President Obama in 2012, veteran investigative reporter Bob Woodward on Sunday said the IRS scandal cries out for a no-holds-barred investigation.
“We should dig in to it — there should be answers,” Woodward said on “Fox News Sunday.”
On Wednesday, the federalOffice of Special Counsel– which investigates allegations of election activity by federal employees that’s prohibited under the Hatch Act – cited three cases of alleged impropriety …
Compassionate lib hate mail to leukemia victim: ‘Hope cancer kills you soon!’
2 Apr 2014 7:39 am
The Michigan woman who ignited a national firestorm by going public with her story about how Obamacare disrupted the cancer treatment she needs to stay alive is getting a personal look at how ugly the left can get in this country.
On Monday, Americans for Prosperity Regional Director Slade O’Brien used Twitter to post a picture of hate mail sent to Julie Boonstra, a leukemia victim whose story put a personal face on the travesty of Obamacare.
Since bullies are generally cowards, the letter was unsigned, of course, and had no return address. The …
‘Racist’ Michelle Obama quote fools panel; Bill Maher pretends Paul Ryan said it
29 Mar 2014 6:18 pm
“Real Time” host Bill Maher caused some real confusion with his knee-jerk liberal guests Friday night when he offered them a “racist” quote from Paul Ryan that turned out to really be from Michelle Obama.
And he did it to make a point.
Maher was piling on the latest liberal meme of Paul Ryan as piñata for comments he made in mid-March about inner-city “men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work.”
Two of Maher’s guests, Center for American President Neera Tanden and comedian W. …

Armstrong’s two stations – in Flint, Mich., and Myrtle Beach, S.C. – operate under a deal with white-owned Sinclair Broadcastingthat helps Armstrong’s stations get better advertising rates …
‘Coward of an attorney general’: Murdered Border Patrol agent’s brother shames Holder
7 Feb 2014 3:24 am
The brother of the Border Patrol agent who died during a gunfight with smugglers armed with weapons that were part of the botched Fast and Furious “gun-walking” operation has written a scathing letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding to know when someone will answer for Brian Terry’s blood.
In the letter excerpted by Breitbart.com, Kent Terry is clearly frustrated that after more than four years Holder remains unable – or unwilling – to hold anyone in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms responsible for his brother’s death.
“It is shocking to know that the Attorney General …
Doctor’s ‘I will not comply’ Obamacare letter going viral
3 Feb 2014 3:04 am
A Texas ophthalmologist and co-founder of AmericanDoctors4Truth tore down the curtain on Obamacare last week, describing President Obama’s “signature” legislative achievement for the con game of forced labor that it really is.
When she wrote to the Aetna insurance company canceling her participation in its offerings, Dr.Kristin Held of San Antonio was informed she is contractually bound to care for the company’s patients for another year — as though Obamacare not only re-configured the American health care system, it repealed the 13th Amendment at the same time.
In her letter dated Jan. 30, the long-time and …

Gates: Only passion Obama ever showed for military was over ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’
15 Jan 2014 6:50 am
The good news is, the president chooses his battles.
The bad new? The battles he chooses.
The book written by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates has been making headlines for its portrayals of a president ambivalent about war strategy, but a Fox News review of “Duty: Memories of a Secretary at War,” has an even more disturbing angle.
The only time the President Obama showed he really cared about military issues wasn’t strictly related to national security or the safety of Americans serving in the hot spots of Afghanistan and Iraq, Gates wrote — …

Conservative Christians squared off in a pre-Christmas contest of ideas with an atheist group after the Christians unfurled a banner heralding the existence of angels to cover up an atheist group’s neon “A” in Chicago’s Daly Plaza.

The Florida appeals court ruling that the University of North Florida was violating state law when it prohibited a woman from storing a gun in her vehicle while she attended class will spill over to cities and counties statewide, an attorney said Wednesday.

I was sorry to hear that you tweeted out such vile comments about my little sister yesterday. It’s sad because Sarah has never …

29 Nov 2013 2:20 am
An anti-gun Colorado state senator resigned Wednesday in the face of a recall effort that could have cost anti-gun Democrats their hold in the state Senate.
According to Fox Denver affiliate Fox31, Sen. Evie Hudak’s resignation means a Democratic “vacancy committee” will appoint her successor.
“In the interest of preserving the progress made over the last year, I am resigning as State Senator for District 19, effective immediately,” Hudak wrote,according to Fox31.
When Democrats say “progress,” they almost always mean more government inroads into the freedoms Americans have by birthright, and Hudak’s no different. This spring, …

24 Nov 2013 1:33 am
Sixty years after the fighting stopped for U.S. forces on the Korean peninsula,North Korean officials pulled an elderly American veteran of the war from a plane in Pyongyang last month and have been holding him since.
The North Koreans haven’t explained detaining the man, or even that they have him in custody, so it remains a mystery why they’re doing it, but one report suggests a simple answer: They’ve got the wrong guy.
Merrill E. Newman, 85, of Palo Alto, Calif., was a tourist winding up his first trip to Korea since the …

Tony Ledbetter argues with Hassan Shibly, Esq. from the Council on American-Islamic Relations Tampa Chapter
A history textbook critics say “whitewashes” the history of Islam will continue to be used in Volusia County schools after a four-hour school board meeting Monday.
Almost 80 speakers addressed the board, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported late Monday, with critics arguing Prentice Hall’s “World History”taught in the county’s 10th-grade classes includes a 32-page chapter about the spread of Islam but glosses over the violence that accompanied it.
The book also includes no similar treatment of Christianity. That led opponents …

Burning wood just isn’t green enough.
Only weeks after the Environmental Protection Agency effectively banned 80 percent of the wood-burning stoves money-saving Americans use to heat their homes, the attorneys general of seven states are suing to force the agency to crack down on wood-burning water heaters.
The suit argues that the oldest heating method known to man – and a mainstay of poor, rural homes – is a health hazard,according to CNS News. .
