Communists in Congress? Just count ‘em….. “In both volumes, Loudon has proved himself to be among the foremost experts in the world investigating and reporting the penetration of communists, socialists and the current group of “progressives” affiliated with Democratic Party politics who portray themselves as liberals. In his 2011 book, Loudon presented documented evidence that Barack Obama’s rise in politics was not an accident, but a conscious, decade-long effort by the radical left to promote a candidate with African roots. “

Is formation of the North American Union what really is behind the Central American diaspora blurring our Southern Border and destroying the United States? A Townhall.com commenter attended the four week seminar at the prestigious Newberry Library’s Dr. William Scholl Center for American History and Culture held in Chicago last month and describes what he heard academic elites design for us. “Bridging National Borders in North America” was put on by the taxpayer funded National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar for college and university faculty.
This gum flappers paradigm presented only the “larger issues” but, of course of blending South America, Central America, the United States and Canada into one union. Is this seminar topic something like the North American Union, a part of the UN’s New World Order?One of the topics discussed was entitled, “how diverse peoples challenge national borders or use or alter them borders for their own purposes.” Hello. Isn’t this what we are seeing right now? And, incidentally, just how many of the Chicago academic attendees live or teach anywhere near the mayhem in TX, AZ, or CA?
Gun violence is a crisis in public health
Milwaukee J-S ^ | 12 july 2014 | Eugene KanePosted on 7/12/2014, 7:17:41 AM by rellimpankWhen a major American city such as Chicago reports 82 people shot and 14 killed over a violent holiday weekend,
it’s time to take notice.Describing some parts of the inner city as “the Wild, Wild West” or “an urban war zone” to make a point about lawlessness just doesn’t cut it anymore. It’s time to call it what it is: an epidemic of gun violence as deadly as any infectious disease or plague that any health professional can imagine.

Obama’s Anti-Media Tantrums

As America tires of his inflated sense of self-importance while the economy limps and his foreign policy crumbles, Obama travels around the country complaining that the mean old media aren’t complimentary enough.
“You’ll hear if you watch the nightly news or you read the newspapers that, well, there’s gridlock, Congress is broken, approval ratings for Congress are terrible.
And there’s a tendency to say, a plague on both your houses. But the truth of the matter is that the problem in Congress is very specific. We have a group of folks in the Republican Party who have taken over who are so ideologically rigid.”If this speech were a book, its title would be, “I’m OK; You’re a Right-Wing Extremist.”
