Bobby Jindal: Second Amendment Rights Apply Wherever You're Legally Allowed To Be


One week after a gunman opened fire, killing two people in a Lafayette, Louisiana, movie theater, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said people should be allowed to carry guns anywhere, including movie theaters.

During a segment on July 29 on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” Blitzer asked whether Jindal agreed with his fellow GOP presidential candidate, former Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. Blitzer was referring to Perry’s statement on July 26 that people should be allowed to carry guns in movie theaters and other places, reports The Hill.

“I'm a big believer that where you are legally allowed to be, you should be able to have your Second Amendment rights as well” Jindal told Blitzer. “There are private property issues, I understand that. Somebody has a right to say what they want to do with their property, but I think the fewer restrictions on law-abiding citizens, the better for them and the better for our country.”

Swiss bank's donations to Clinton Foundation increased after Hillary intervention in IRS dispute


Donations to the Clinton Foundation by Swiss bank UBS increased tenfold after Hillary Clinton intervened to settle a dispute with the IRS early in her tenure as secretary of state, according to a published report.

According to the Wall Street Journal, total donations by UBS to the foundation grew from less than $60,000 at the end of 2008 to approximately $600,000 by the end of 2014. 

The Journal reports that the bank also lent $32 million through entrepreneurship and inner-city loan programs it launched in association with the foundation, while paying former President Bill Clinton $1.5 million to participate in a series of corporate question-and-answer sessions with UBS Chief Executive Bob McCann.  More

Reported two-month gap in Clinton emails coincides with escalating Libya violence


A reported two-month gap in emails from Hillary Clinton's private account during 2012 coincides with a period of escalating violence in Libya and the obtaining of a special exemption by her top aide, Huma Abedin, to work for both the State Department and the Clinton Foundation.

The Daily Beast reported late Tuesday that no emails between Clinton and her State Department staff for the months of May and June 2012 are among the estimated 2,000 messages that have been released from the Democratic presidential frontrunner's account.  More

Obama to African Union: ‘I’m a Pretty Good President’ And If I Ran For a Third Term, I Could Win


President Obama told the African Union Tuesday that he felt he had been a “pretty good” president and if he were allowed to run for a third term, he’d probably be victorious.

Obama made the remarks while criticizing leaders on the continent who wouldn’t step aside at the conclusion of their terms.

“Now, let me be honest with you,” Obama said. “I do not understand this. I am in my second term. It has been an extraordinary privilege for me to serve as the President of the United States. I cannot imagine a greater honor or a more interesting job. I love my work. But under our Constitution, I cannot run again.”

The crowd cheered appreciatively.  More

Technician details harvesting fetal parts for Planned Parenthood


A technician who said she worked for a company that partnered with Planned Parenthood to harvest fetal tissue said there’s “incentive to try and get the hard stuff ‘cause you’re going to get more money,” in the latest undercover video targeting Planned Parenthood.

“For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage,” said Holly O’Donnell, identified as an ex-procurement technician for StemExpress, a Placerville, Calif., company. “The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens. No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated.” More

The Black Dilemma - FROM THE BALTIMORE SUN


Opinion - "For almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an interesting experiment. The subjects of the experiment: black people and working-class whites.
The hypothesis to be tested: Can a people taken from the jungles of Africa and forced into slavery be fully integrated as citizens in a majority white population?

The whites were descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic civilization. The former slaves had been tribal peoples with no written language and virtually no intellectual achievements. Acting on a policy that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed black people into a white society that saw them as inferiors. America has struggled with racial discord ever since.

Decade after decade the problems persisted but the experimenters never gave up. They insisted that if they could find the right formula the experiment would work, and concocted program after program to get the result they wanted. They created the Freedmans Bureau, passed civil rights laws, tried to build the Great Society, declared War on Poverty, ordered race preferences, built housing projects, and tried midnight basketball.

Their new laws intruded into peoples lives in ways that would have been otherwise unthinkable. They called in National Guard troops to enforce school integration. They outlawed freedom of association. Over the protests of parents, they put white children on buses and sent them to black schools and vice-versa. They tried with money, special programs, relaxed standards, and endless hand wringing to close the achievement gap. To keep white backlash in check they began punishing public and even private statements on race. They hung up Orwellian public banners that commanded whites to Celebrate Diversity and Say No to Racism.
Nothing was off limits if it might salvage the experiment.

Some thought that what W.E.B. DuBois called the Talented Tenth would lead the way for black people. A group of elite, educated blacks would knock down doors of opportunity and show the world what blacks were capable of.

There is a Talented Tenth. They are the black Americans who have become entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and scientists. But ten percent is not enough. For the experiment to work, the ten percent has to be followed by a critical mass of people who can hold middle-class jobs and promote
social stability. That is what is missing.

Through the years, too many black people continue to show an inability to function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them. Detroit is bankrupt, the south side of Chicago is a war zone, and the vast majority of black cities all over America are beset by degeneracy and violence. And blacks never take responsibility for their failures. Instead, they lash out in anger and resentment.

Across the generations and across the country, as we have seen in Detroit, Watts, Newark, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and now Ferguson [and Baltimore], rioting and looting are just one racial incident away. The white elite would tell us that this doesn't mean the experiment has failed. We just
have to try harder. We need more money, more time, more understanding, more programs, and more opportunities.

But nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many laws are passed, no matter how many black geniuses are portrayed on TV, and no matter who is president. Some argue its a problem of culture, as if culture creates peoples behavior instead of the other way around.
Others blame white privilege.

But since 1965, when the elites opened Americas doors to the Third World, immigrants from Asia and India, people who are not white, not rich, and not connected have quietly succeeded. While the children of these people are winning spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT, black youths are committing half the country's violent crime, which includes viciously punching random white people on the street for the thrill of it that has nothing to do with poverty.

The experiment has failed. Not because of white culture, or white privilege, or white racism. The fundamental problem is that American black culture has evolved into an un-fixable and crime ridden mess. They do not want to change their culture or society, and expect others to tolerate their violence and amoral behavior. They have become socially incompatible with other races by their own design, not because of the racism of others - but by their own hatred of non-blacks.*

Our leaders don't seem to understand just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment. *They don't understand that white people aren't out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them. They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless
complaints, and the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of grievances, the excuses, and the reflexive animosity.

The elites explain everything with racism, and refuse to believe that white frustration could soon reach the boiling point."

"You can't legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody anything that the government doesn't first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they don't have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end
of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

You Are Paying Planned Parenthood $500,000.00 Every Year To Kill Babies And Sell Their Body Parts


Washington DC - Several legislative efforts to defund Planned Parenthood of federal tax dollars are in the works after two undercover videos appear to show doctors affiliated with the group discussing the exchange of organs and other body parts from aborted fetuses.

In the days after the videos went public, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, also a GOP presidential contender, announced he would move to strip some of the roughly $500 million in taxpayer money given to Planned Parenthood each year.

"This organization has absolutely zero respect for the sanctity of human life and is an affront to the most basic human dignity enshrined in our founding documents," he said.

On Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-K.Y., introduced a measure aimed at the same goal.  More

Criminal Inquiry Is Sought in Clinton Email Account


WASHINGTON — Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.

The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton's private account contained "hundreds of potentially classified emails." The memo was written to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management.

It is not clear if any of the information in the emails was marked as classified by the State Department when Mrs. Clinton sent or received them.  More

'You've been fleeced': Congress grills Kerry, Obama officials on Iran nuke deal


A top Senate Republican accused the Obama administration on Thursday of cutting a deal with Iran that paves its path to a nuclear weapon, telling Secretary of State John Kerry: "You've been fleeced."

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker tore into the nuclear agreement at the start of a hearing before his committee, where Kerry and other top officials were testifying. He said he walked away from a briefing with the secretary a day earlier "depressed," and claimed Iran could eventually build a bomb by simply waiting out the clock and "abiding by this agreement."

"From my perspective, Mr. Secretary, I'm sorry ... I believe you've been fleeced," Corker said.  More

The Obama administration is moving forward with plans to expand a waiver program that will allow additional illegal aliens to remain in the country


The Obama administration is moving forward with plans to expand a waiver program that will allow additional illegal aliens to remain in the country rather than apply for legal status from abroad.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a proposed rule on Tuesday that would make changes to a waiver program created by President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration in 2013. 

The action created a waiver that primarily allowed illegal immigrants with a U.S. citizen spouse or parent to stay in the country instead of having to leave the United States and be barred from returning for three or 10 years, if they proved their absence would create an “extreme hardship” for their spouse.

The new rule expands eligibility to a host of other categories of illegal immigrants beyond those with citizen spouses and parents.  More

Obama finally orders flags lowered to honor Tennessee victims, after criticism


President Obama has ordered that flags be lowered to half-staff at the White House and federal buildings across the country to honor the victims of last week's shooting rampage in Chattanooga, Tenn., after facing pressure from lawmakers and others.

In a proclamation issued early Tuesday afternoon, Obama said of the Chattanooga victims, "We honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the police officers and first responders who stopped the rampage and saved lives. 

We draw strength from yet another American community that has come together with an unmistakable message to those who would try and do us harm: We do not give in to fear. You cannot divide us. And you will not change our way of life."

Obama looks to ban Social Security recipients from owning guns


Washington DC – The Obama administration wants to keep people collecting Social Security benefits from owning guns if it is determined they are unable to manage their own affairs, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The push, which could potentially affect millions whose monthly disability payments are handled by others, is intended to bring the Social Security Administration in line with laws that prevent gun sales to felons, drug addicts, immigrants in the United States illegally, and others, according to the paper.

The language of federal gun laws restricts ownership to people who are unable to manage their own affairs due to “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease” – which could potentially affect a large group within Social Security, the LA Times reported.

Obama collecting personal data for a secret race database


A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race.

The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”

Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.

This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already is using to make “disparate impact” cases against: banks that don’t make enough prime loans to minorities; schools that suspend too many blacks; cities that don’t offer enough Section 8 and other low-income housing for minorities; and employers who turn down African-Americans for jobs due to criminal backgrounds. More

Teachers union members want Hillary endorsement withdrawn


WASHINGTON — Furious American Federation of Teachers members are demanding the union withdraw its endorsement of Hillary Rodham Clinton, calling it premature and undemocratic.

“There was no internal discussion. Zero. Zip,” said Steve Conn, president of the Detroit Federation of Teachers. 

“This is wrong and something needs to be done.”

The 45-member AFT executive board voted Saturday to back Clinton despite an AFL-CIO request to wait until July when the presidential field is more set.  More

Why should we make it easy for killers to attack our military?


Thursday saw yet another tragic attack in a gun-free zone. Four Marines were murdered. Others were injured.

Watching the coverage on television Thursday, it was hard to ignore the gun-free zone sign on the front door of the recruiting station. It was surrounded by bullet holes.

Army regulations are very clear stating that personnel cannot have firearms during their official duties. Last year the Obama administration instituted interim rules that clearly prohibit privately owned weapons from all federally leased office and land, including recruiters’ offices.

We trust soldiers to carry guns all the time when they are stationed in Iraq or Afghanistan, but somehow when they come home we no longer trust them. More

Housing an illegal immigrant for a night in the US’ biggest detention center costs more than the nearest four-star Hilton Hotel


Texas – A night’s stay for an illegal immigrant in the country’s largest taxpayer-funded detention center costs more than a room at the nearest Hilton Hotel, Daily Mail Online can reveal.

The government shells out $231 every 24 hours to house just one of the 2,105 foreign detainees at The South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, a small town 200 miles from the Mexican border.

That is more than a double room at the four-star Hilton Palacio del Rio 70 miles away in San Antonio, which costs $169.

It is also higher than the rate ($199) of a luxury King Suite at the four-star Hotel Cantessa – which boasts a rooftop pool and a gym. More

Lawmaker Arrested for Indecent Exposure After Incident at Ex-Husband’s Home


Maryland – State Delegate Ariana Kelly (D-Montgomery) was arrested in late June for indecent exposure and trespassing at her ex-husband’s home.

The 39-year-old Kelly — of Bethesda, Maryland — was dropping her children off at ex-husband Barak Sanford’s house when she became enraged at the presence of Sanford’s new fiancĂ©e inside the home.

Kelly and Sanford divorced in November and share custody of their children.

According to the charging document, Sanford played a cellphone video for police that showed Kelly ringing the doorbell “numerous times,” exposing her breasts in the direction of Sanford’s cellphone camera and then “with one breast in each hand [shaking] them up and down.” More

Planned Parenthood sells dead baby body parts


California – The video is gruesome and appalling.

It purportedly shows a Planned Parenthood executive sipping a glass of wine in a Los Angeles restaurant while casually explaining how they sell body parts from aborted babies.

The undercover video was filmed in July 2014 by the Center for Medical Progress, an advocacy group that reports on medical ethics.

They dispatched two actors posing as representatives of a human biologics company to a business lunch with Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services. More   Watch video at Nutty Videos

Nude protest to show President differences between a man and a woman


Kenya – A little-known party has sought permission to show President Barack Obama the differences between a man and a woman through a nude protest.

The peaceful demonstration against homosexuality will begin at 10 am at the Freedom Corner, on July 22 and 23, said Republican Liberty party leader Vincent Kidala.

“The procession shall be carried out by approximately 5,000 totally naked men and women to protest over Obama’s open and aggressive support for homosexuality,” Kidala said in a letter to the county commander on Monday.

“In fact our party has a network of prostitutes in Nairobi, Nakuru and other counties. This is where we shall get all these people whose number we expect to increase,” he told the Star on phone. More

NAACP chapter calls for removal of massive Confederate sculpture in public park


Atlanta – A sculpture in Georgia larger than a football field – depicting Civil War luminaries Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson – has become the latest target in the push to purge the South of signs of the Confederacy.

The Atlanta chapter of the NAACP called Monday for the elimination of all symbols of the Confederacy from Stone Mountain Park, whose marquee attraction is the 90-foot-high, 190-foot-wide sculpture carved deep into the mountain.

“Those guys need to go,” chapter leader Richard Rose told WSB-TV, referring to Davis, the former president of the Confederate States of America, and the two Confederate generals.

“They can be sand-blasted off, or somebody could carefully remove a slab of that and auction it off to the highest bidder. More

Letter from Commander Bray, TEXAS DIVISION Sons of Confederate Veterans


As you know we are being attacked hourly. Any victory by our oppressors causes even more attacks.

In the last 48 hours I have been dealing with flags stolen from cemeteries around Texas. The statue problem in Austin, planned removal of monuments in San Antonio and the coming attack on all monuments at the State Capital are some of the issues. 

With the fall of the flag in Charleston I am afraid we are about to be savagely mauled by politicians that smell blood in the water.

Many have asked what the plan is for the SCV. We will fight! What else can we do? Just like the old Confederates we have small numbers and no money. We need to raise funds to fight these people in court. 

This is not the plaques case or the license plate case. This will be many court cases at one time and it will cost this Division a lot of money to fight. We must raise a war chest for our Division and it must be done now! 

 We must call and keep pressure on the people that are attacking us. Keep their phones ringing and get anyone that is willing to help to keep calling and complaining. Make their lives miserable!

The Southern people are mad and I hope mad enough to join us. Talk to anyone that will listen and get them into our Camps. We need their help, their talents and their money to help in this fight. 

 During the parade in Arlington, Texas, I studied the faces in the crowd and what I saw in those faces was relief that someone was standing up for their heritage. 

They were so proud of the SCV, proud that we had the guts to stand up for what is just and true. I have been on radio shows and done interviews and can tell you that the American people are with us and politicians are against us. This is a witch hunt.

I want to say a heartfelt thank you to the men of the 6TH Brigade, for you men are the heroes of our Division. You are taking the brunt of this battle in Texas. 

John McCammon, Carl Crowther, Russ Lane and Marshall Davis thank you for your hours of work and TV and Radio spots defending our cause. God bless all of the Texas Compatriots that carried our flags in 4Th of July events across this state. You showed the people around the world that our colors don't run and that SCV men will stand their ground in this fight for our heritage.

Donate today to the Texas Division Heritage Defense and ask your friends and families to donate as well, as every penny counts. Please spread the word.

Please mail your donation today to: Texas Division Adjutant, 725 David Drive, Tyler, TX 75703. Make checks out to Texas Division SCV.

For our cause and our heritage,

Iran nuclear agreement a 'bad mistake of historic proportions'


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that a nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers, led by the United States, was "a bad mistake of historic proportions."

Netanyahu gave his thoughts on the agreement prior to the start of a meeting with Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders in Jerusalem and vowed to continue efforts to block Tehran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

"Iran is going to receive a sure path to nuclear weapons. Many of the restrictions that were supposed to prevent it from getting there will be lifted," Netanyahu said. "Iran will get a jackpot, a cash bonanza of hundreds of billions of dollars, which will enable it to continue to pursue its aggression and terror in the region and in the world."  More

EL CHAPO WARNS TRUMP TO SHUT MOUTH


Mexico's billion dollar drugs lord known as 'El Chapo' has gloated on Twitter about his escape from a maximum security jail by taunting authorities and threatening US-presidential hopeful Donald Trump.

Joaquin Guzman, billionaire head of the powerful Sinaloa Cartel, made his jail break on Saturday morning and is on the run from Altiplano jail, 50 miles outside of Mexico City, security officials said.

His audacious escape saw him dash through the mile-long tunnel system, which led to a building under construction next to the prison - from where he collected clothes left for him by his conspirators.  More
