In Strike Against Racism S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley Has Banned Cotton Balls in South Carolina

-By Warner Todd Huston

Fresh off her PR victory of calling for the end of Confederate history, this weekend South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called for the removal of cotton balls from the her state citing the long history of racism the product represents.

“Today we are here in a moment of unity in our state without ill will to say it is time to remove cotton balls from our state,” said the Republican Governor, the state’s first non-white governor, while flanked by a diverse group of South Carolina politicians.

“These balls, while an integral part of our past, do not represent the future of our great state,” Haley said. “We need to eliminate not just cotton balls, but all cotton products from our good state because of the racist history cotton has to a tiny, activist portion of our citizenry.”

Proponents said that lifting cotton balls from store shelves reminds African Americans too much of “pickin’ cotton,” and the constant reminder of tags in clothing that tell buyers that an item is made of cotton is racist.

ACLU: Obama Has Quadrupled Warrantless Wiretaps

-By Warner Todd Huston

The ACLU released a report this week that shows that under Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder, warrantless wiretapping and monitoring of American’s electronic communications is “sharply on the rise.”

After months of litigation and Freedom of Information Act requests, the ACLU obtained documents from the federal government proving that real-time monitoring of electronic communications inside the U.S. has climbed 60 percent since 2009 and far surpasses that under President Bush.

The ACLU reports that the Dept. of Justice used “pen register” and “trap and trace” techniques 23,535 times in 2009 and 37,616 times in 2011.

A President of Scorn, or a President with Cajones?

A President of Scorn, or a President with Cajones?

-By Kevin Roeten

Drinking, AIDS in Africa, failed stimulus programs, torture, terrorism, ESCR, Abu Ghraib, North Korea, al-Qaeda, Hussein, WMD, AGW, Katrina, 9/11, surge, and financial crises are just a very few of the occurrences in this presidency. Even the Great Depression almost paled in comparison this presidency’s trials and tribulations. Not many leaders could survive this onslaught.

Amazingly, George W. Bush had completely cleaned up his drinking problems long before being elected president. He endured, and it sufficiently steeled him for the vicious storm to come.

He incorporated PEPFAR (President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) to eliminate AIDS/HIV in Africa. Africans called it the Lazarus Effect. In each of the first five years, 150,000 babies were saved. Bush stated those lives (over 750,000 saved) aided America’s strategic and moral interests. He knew societies mired in poverty and disease foster hopelessness, which leaves people ripe for recruitment by extremists and terrorists. As a result, many more terrorists were not recruited, and more Americans were not killed.

Abortion Rates Rose in Illinois 2008

Abortion Rates Rose in Illinois 2008

-By Warner Todd Huston

United Press International is reporting that abortion rates rose five percent in Illinois in 2008. Illinois doctors performed 47,717 abortions, the most in five years.

The state Department of Public Health reported 47,717 abortions in 2008, the latest year for which it has figures. In 1998, there were 49,403.

There is a law on the books that could bring this number down, of course, but extreme leftists and infanticide fans in the state have stalled its implementation over and over again. A Parental Notification Law for teens 17 and under was passed in 1995 and the left has been fighting it in court ever since. So far, every attempt they’ve made to have it declared unconstitutional has failed, yet each year they continue to find pliant, ant-constitutional judges to once again declare it “on hold” until its legal status can be “reviewed” and determined.

ACLUs War on Christmas on Hold Due to Economy

ACLUs War on Christmas on Hold Due to Economy

-By Warner Todd Huston

Peter Hannaford of the American Spectator reports that the ACLU has suddenly found some tight budgeting times with the announcement that one of its long time patrons said he couldn’t donate the tall cash he usually donates because of his own harsh economic realities.

Apparently the ACLU sent out a letter that told its followers that its largest donor, David Gelbaum, couldn’t donate this year because his investments in “clean tech” were not doing very well. IN fact, that is two Christmas presents to the nation.

That means that the ACLU has only enough funds to continue its normal, everyday operations and doesn’t have the extra cash to go on its traditional anti-American campaign that it usually launches at this time of year to destroy religion and Christmas.

So, for at least this year, your creches are safe, your crosses and angels on the tree won’t find lawsuits filed against them, and your singing of religious carols won’t be silenced by the hatemongers of the ACLU.

So, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Ill. GOP Minority Leader in Bed With Criminal ACORN?

Ill. GOP Minority Leader in Bed With Criminal ACORN?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Shockingly, it looks like Tom Cross (R- Oswego), the Republican Minority leader at the State Capitol in Springfield, has taken several large campaign donations from the criminal organization ACORN. Even worse, it looks like Cross indulged a quid pro quo to help the troubled community organization out on some of their favored legislative efforts.

Over at, Doug Ibendahl has uncovered some uncomfortable information about our Republican minority leader’s campaign coffers. Ibendahl has found that Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 880 donated $17,750 to Cross in 2003 and another $10,000 from SEIU Healthcare Illinois/Indiana PAC.

The SEIU is a public employees union that is closely linked with the troubled ACORN organization and SEIU Local 880 is close to ACORN, indeed. In fact, on the Local’s webpage you can see an email address it lists for contact info that settles the question. That email happens to be

ACLU: Know What WE Need? Schools That Are Like Porn Shops

-By Warner Todd Huston

Most people imagine that our schools are to be institutes of higher learning. Apparently the ACLU has a little different conception of what “higher learning” means because it is demanding that public schools in Nashville, Tennessee allow gay advocacy sites to go unblocked at library Internet stations throughout the Metro Nashville District.

The porn peddlers of the ACLU have given the Metro schools a “deadline” of April 29 to reverse its Internet policies or they take the issue before the courts.

Another ACLU Attacks Christians Post

-By Warner Todd Huston

New Orleans, Louisiana was founded by French Catholics and the Christian religion has been an ever present cultural influence ever since. Yet, after hundreds of years that cultural influence being comfortably ensconced in New Orleans and the surrounding areas, here comes the ACLU to try and destroy expression of that religious faith.

The Associated Press is reporting that the ACLU has threatened the city of Pontchatula that if they put Christmas lights on a cross near Ponchatoula’s downtown locomotive they will be dragged into court.

Apparently a few lights threaten the existence of the entire Constitution of the United States.

ACLU Stops Bible Distribution in After School/Lunch Break Periods

January 18, 2008 | Filed Under 00Publius Contributor, ACLU, Democrats/Leftists, Education, News, Religion, Society/Culture, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

In their continued efforts to destroy religion in America, the ACLU has won another loathsome victory against the free expression of religion. The AP reports that a rural school district near St. Louis, MO can no longer allow representatives of Gideons International to give away Bibles to fifth-graders during after school periods or during their lunch break periods.

For more than three decades, the South Iron School District in Annapolis, 120 miles southwest of St. Louis in the heart of the Bible Belt, allowed representatives of Gideons International to give away Bibles in fifth-grade classrooms.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed suit two years ago on behalf of four sets of parents. In August, a three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a temporary injunction against the practice.

The district altered its policy, saying the Gideons and others were still welcome to distribute Bibles or other literature before or after school or during lunch break, but not in classrooms.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry ruled both practices were illegal and granted a permanent injunction.

Naturally the ACLU claims that any vestige of Christianity in or near a school means that the poor kiddies are being FORCED to become slaves to Christianity. Sadly, they never take cases trying to stop Islam from being forced on our school kids proving that the ACLU only wants to destroy Christians and that they aren’t the least bit interested in any issue like “religion in schools.”

The school district is going to appeal these anti-religious judges’ decision. Let’s hope they are successful.

ACLU Claims Religious Test ‘Proposed as a Necessary Qualification’ for President

December 12, 2007 | Filed Under 00Publius Contributor, ACLU, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Media Bias, News, President, Religion, Society/Culture, Uncategorized, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off on ACLU Claims Religious Test ‘Proposed as a Necessary Qualification’ for President

-By Warner Todd Huston

If you can’t win your issue by the strength of your argument… then lie. Apparently that is the tactic of the ACLU if a recent “ACLU’s Diary” entry on the DailyKos by T. Jeremy Gunn is any indication. With all the talk of religion surrounding the various candidates for the GOP nomination for president lately it has obviously been driving our ACLU Director of Freedom of Religion and Belief out of his gourd. (Though, one is excused for thinking that his title is a bit misleading for it should probably be a Freedom from Religion and Belief, but be that as it may…) Gunn goes off half cocked over the supposed forced imposition of religion on the campaign for president.

The lie concerns Mr. Gunn’s shot at Romney claiming that he and others have created a new “religious test” as a qualification for a candidate in contravention to the Constitution.

Belief in monotheism has now been proposed as a necessary qualification for someone who wants to be president. So if you are a believer in the Dalai Lama’s religion, Buddhism, this country was not meant for you. If you are a follower of Mahatma Gandhi’s religion, Hinduism, – just check your American dream at the door.

Naturally, Gunn’s claim is an outright lie. His overly emotional blather is easily falsified by merely asking for his claim to be backed up with proof. Unfortunately, Gunn missed his target, because there is no one anywhere who has seriously made up such a proposal. No no religious organization, no Party, no, city, town, State, or Federal government proposal has been introduced anywhere in this country that a religious test be proposed to act as a qualification to run for president. Heck, not even a single candidate has uttered such nonsense.

Pin the Noose on the Honky

October 1, 2007 | Filed Under 00Publius Contributor, ACLU, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Lee Culpepper, Media Bias, News, Race, Society/Culture, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Pin the Noose on the Honky

-By Lee Culpepper

Ramming multiculturalism, diversity, and intolerant-tolerance down the throats of captive students keeps many public schools quite busy. But unwelcome menaces like critical thinking and factual history jeopardize this multicultural indoctrination of students; consequently, many politically correct educators have fought shamelessly and successfully to abolish these perceived “threats” from their classrooms. While PC terms often sound nontoxic and even advantageous, they have actually served to strangle the ability to think.

The disturbing news from Jena, Louisiana, elucidates my point. Racial mayhem has struck this small town. There we have two racial sub-cultures that clearly expose the foolishness of the PC agenda engulfing America. Multicultural zealots insist that all cultures are equal. In fact, they encourage individuals to mindlessly celebrate the culture in which they were born – especially if an individual’s culture runs diametrically opposite to America’s productive melting-pot society. Even more troublesome, to support assimilating into America’s mainstream traditions equates to an abominable sin in multiculturalism’s pagan religion.

On the other hand, the two cultures clashing in Jena help to expose political correctness for the sham that it is. If these two sub-cultures (one white, one black) of American society are equal to every other culture, then what’s the problem? Obviously, these two cultures are counterproductive for the people who live them – that’s the problem! Many other worldly cultures are counterproductive, too. Muslims who see all non-Muslims as infidels — worthy of slaughter — is a relevant example.

ACLU: Let Inciters of Hate Into USA

-By Warner Todd Huston

Leave it to the ACLU to advocate for the US government to allow hate spewing Imams to get a free pass to come into the country and incite their hatred.

ACLU: US Can’t Bar Terrorism Supporters

NEW YORK (AP) – A civil rights group asked a judge Friday to find it unconstitutional for the federal government to exclude a prominent Muslim scholar or anyone else from the United States on the grounds that they may have endorsed or espoused terrorism. The American Civil Liberties Union filed the papers attacking the policy in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.

It is one thing to think long and hard about what government allows legal American citizens to say. It certainly goes to the core of freedom of speech that we shy from telling Americans that their brand of political speech is disallowed. That is why, for instance, the KKK is allowed to do their marches.

But, this is a different animal. These are hate spewing, foreigners the ACLU is advocating for. (So much for the word “American” in their name)

The Constitution, as the saying goes, is NOT a suicide pact, but here is the ACLU fighting for foreigner’s “rights” — I think they should drop the “A” for American since they want to suit up to fight for foreign terrorists — and trying to force the government to allow people into this country who’s chief goal is to destroy it.

Would you meekly open the door for a home invader who knocks and boldly announces his intentions to rob and kill you? Apparently the ACLU wants us to do just that.
