  • Conservative HQ -The Party Of Amnesty Is Not The Working Man’s Friend08/29
    The Democratic Party has long portrayed itself as taking the same place in the American political marketplace as do the Labor parties of Europe – but the policies that today’s Democratic Party advocates, especially its embrace of amnesty and benefits for illegal aliens, bear little relationship to the day-to-day concerns of working Americans.And today’s workers are starting to catch on that the Party of Amnesty is not the working man’s friend. Top pollster Kellyanne Conway, President & CEO of The Polling Company, recently conducted a poll that found likely voters were unequivocal in their support of immigration policies that protect the American worker. Their sentiment is the inverse of the oft-repeated phrase, “illegal immigrants do the jobs that Americans don’t want to do,” saying instead that these workers should have a fair opportunity to do the jobs that illegal immigrants currently do. (See links to Conway’s poll at the end of this article)

    Attorney Larry Klayman, fresh off a preliminary court ruling that the National Security Agency’s spying on Americans likely is unconstitutional, now has named President Obama and others in a racketeering complaint. Klayman, founder of Freedom Watch and a columnist for WND, alleges the president and others laundered U.S. taxpayer money that was spent on Hamas rockets fired against Israel. The civil lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington falls under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO, alleges criminal acts by Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.

  • Caruba: What is the Difference Between the DNC and the CPUSA? – 08/26
    By Alan Caruba

    On the home page of the Communist Party USA it says “A better and peaceful world is possible—a world where people and nature come before profits. That’s socialism. That’s our vision. We are the Communist Party USA.” No, it’s not Socialism which is a watered down version of Communism. Real Communism is the kind that was practiced in the former Soviet Union. It can be found in Cuba and North Korea where the state controls all power and property,and the people have none.

  • NATIONAL POST- Math wars: Rote memorization plays crucial role in teaching students how to solve complex calculations, study says – 08/26In a finding sure to inflame the math wars, a team of neuroscientists has revealed the crucial role played by rote memorization in the growing brains of youg math students.Memorizing the answers to simple math problems, such as basic addition or the multiplication tables, marks a key shift in a child’s cognitive development, because it helps bridge the gap from counting on fingers to complex calculation, according to the new brain scanning research.The progression from counting on fingers to simply remembering that, for example, six plus three equals nine, parallels physical changes in a child’s brain, in which the hippocampus, a key brain structure for memory, gradually takes over from the pre-frontal parietal cortex, an area of higher order reasoning.

Pardon the French: Where the HELL are President Obama, Eric Holder, The FBI, “Reverend” Sharpton, and “Reverend”Jackson?

One Black individual  shot and killed by a white policemen who was in all respects fearing for his life after having been brutally attacked  by the individual moments before the shooting, becomes a national racial issue because of our President and people like Sharpton, Jackson and Eric Holder..

Any death whether black, white, brown or what ever is tragic but to make a national case out of it to push a racial issue and national divide of race is unconscionable, This is exactly what President Obama, Eric Holder and the racial mouth pieces Sharpton and Jackson are doing. With respect to President Obama it is all about Political stature to make himself look exceptional to the Black Community.

The president should not be involving himself in community issue, if he is going to do this where is he on the following 6 murders of Policeman by Black killers?

  • Officer-Detective Melvin Santiago? A Jersey City police officer shot to death  on July 13, 2014. Santiago was white. His killer, Lawrence Campbell, was black. Does anyone recall Obama appearing before national television and calling for justice for Officer Santiagos’ family? Does anyone recall Eric Holder rushing to Jersey City to see that justice was done?
  • How about Officer Jeffrey Westerfield. Gary, Indiana police officer  shot to death  July 6th, 2014. Westerfield was white. Charged as his killer, Carl LeEllis Blount, Jr. was black.
    Verified: ​
  • Officer Perry Renn? Indianapolis, Indiana, police officer shot to death  July 5, 2014, the day before Officer Westerfield was killed. Officer Renn was white. His killer, Major Davis, was black.
    Verified: ​
  • Deputy Sheriff, Vermillion Parish  Allen Bares,  gunned down by two men June 23, 2014 in Louisiana. Deputy Bares was white. His two charged killers, Quintlan Richard and Baylon Taylor, were black.
    Verified: ​
  • Detective Charles Dinwiddie, of the Killeen (Texas) Police Department, murdered May 11th, 2014, by Marvin Lewis Guy, a black male. Officer Dinwiddie was white.  Did you see anything about that on the news. Certainly, the white citizens in Killeen didn’t take to the streets to loot and burn businesses.
    Verified: ​​
  • Officer Kevin Jordan of the Griffin, Georgia Police Department,  gunned down May 31, 2014. Officer Jordan was black. His killer, Michael Bowman, was white. This was a white man murdering a black police officer. Where was Jesse Jackson? Where was “The Reverend” Al Sharpton? Was there looting and burning on the streets of Griffin, Georgia? No. In fact, I don’t recall hearing about this one in the news, as well. Why? You can draw your own conclusions.
    Verified: ​

Over the past 60 days, there have been 6 reported deaths of police officers by gunshot in the US. Of those, five were white officers who were murdered by black men, one was a Black Officer killed by a White. Blacks complain that white officers treat black men more aggressively on the street, could there be a reason here ?

In all these cases not a single word was spoken by President Obama, Eric Holder, “Reverend” Sharpton or “Reverend” Jackson. No statement like this one made in Missouri by Holder; Attorney General Eric Holder sought to assure residents here Wednesday that the U.S. Justice Department was thoroughly probing the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a police officer. Did he make this statement to the families of the 5 slain police officers? Did he send in the FBI (12)  investigate these cases? You can draw your own conclusions on that. Is there an election coming soon? Is there an agenda here?

Note: the title of “reverend ( 2.. worthy of being revered; entitled to reverence. is used very loosely, people who preach hatred and racial divide to me are not Reverend people, and Jackson and Sharpton are not worthy of being revered!

Is the GOP ready to follow Sen. Sessions on immigration?

Is the GOP ready to follow Sen. Sessions on immigration?



Jonathan Strong of Breitbart writes that the statement from Brad Dayspring, spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial, is notable because while the law-and-order side of border security has always been a staple GOP talking point, the economic impact of increased immigration on wages is a secondary and disputed aspect.

Indeed, Dayspring’s statement (which Strong reprints in full) puts the economic impact of executive amnesty front and center. Here’s an excerpt:

The ‘Economy’ means different things to voters (affordability, security) & immigration is viewed by many as part of the overall economic equation. Executive amnesty would not only subvert the law, but depress wages, and hurt the poorest Americans most of all — including legal immigrants looking to rise into the middle class. Workers are hurting. The share of Americans in the workforce is at its lowest level in nearly 4 decades. There are 58 million working-age Americans who aren’t working. Median household income has dropped $2,000 since 2009. Wages are lower today than in 1999.

Dayspring goes on to say that the Senators (he singles out Democratic candidates) who voted with Harry Reid to block the House bills to prevent executive amnesties will be complicit in slashing wages and making it even more difficult for unemployed Americans trying to get a job to find one.

For too long, Sen. Sessions was one of the only Senators to stand up for American workers against immigration amnesty and expansion. Dayspring’s statement is an encouraging sign that segments of the Republican Party are ready to become champions of American workers as well.

Spread the word,



Published on Aug 20, 2014
Since the shooting of Michael Brown by a white policeman and the ensuing riots and looting in Ferguson, MO, Americans have been told, yet again, that there is an epidemic of crime against black people in this country. But is there really a race war, and if so, which side is actually waging it?

Florida Stop Common Core


Dear FLCCFighters,
Primary day is Tuesday, August 26th. Please do your homework, check the information below and in your own area & exercise your precious right to vote. Please see all the important follow-up and testing information as well. Thank you!
BREAKING NEWS – On the eve of the primary, Governor Scott has announced plans to form an independent commission to review the standards, tests, and recently passed legislation. If discussions with staff are accurate, this will not happen until the end of the school year after Common Core is cemented in for another year. While we are waiting for details, if it was like the public comment period, it will likely be more “Lipstick on a pig”, and not be helpful to quell criticism or relieve the dangerous burden of Common Core on our children and teachers. Please see our initial analysis
and stay tuned for more as details emerge
FSCCC offers the following information on the Common Core positions of candidates in these various races, which is not a complete list. These are NOT endorsements. We urge voters to examine the information and weigh candidates’ positions on other issues important to them as well:
