Obama Cancels Free Speech in Nebraska

Free political speech is an American founding principle ensconced in our Constitution, this we know. It is seemingly born into most Americans at birth. Well, by Americans, we don’t mean liberals and proof of that is in Nebraska where Obama’s racist henchman Attorney General Eric Holder is seeking to prosecute someone–anyone–over a parade float that criticized his emperor.

In an Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Nebraska one of the floats was a bit of a jab at The One. It featured a pickup with an outhouse on the truck bed with signs reading “Presidential Library.” It also featured what many feel looks like a gaunt, African American figure with hands raised to its head, face in a frozen scream.

Was it a tasteless joke? Sure. Is it something that should bring the Justice Department of the United States down on someone’s head. Not even close.

Now Destroying Unions is the Same as Reforming Government

Years ago folks that stood against unions always had that one obstacle of “private” concerns in the way of urging people away from unionism. But today, with most unions being tied directly to government, now fighting unions is an act of beneficial government reform.

Once upon a time, the biggest hurdle for those arguing against unionism was the simple truth–and it was a truth–that unions and businesses were private concerns and if the two entities agreed to co-exist, who was an anti-union activist to say anything against the arrangement?

This is a simple, logical question that always made anti-union activists look like meddling outsiders. And the truth is, no matter how right they were that unionism is a bad idea for everyone, they were meddlers!

But today we have a far different situation for those who stand against unions. Since 1959 when unions were first allowed to organize government workers unions have slowly encroached into nearly every aspect of government causing spending to soar, bloating pensions beyond belief, and destroying the efficiency of government.

Professor Jedediah Purdy Wants You Forced to Follow His Religion

Professor Jedediah Purdy of Duke University Law School feels that you are not thinking right and therefore he wants you forced through “conflict” to accept his religion.

I assure you that this wouldn’t be his interpretation of the under girding of the essay he disgorged at Politico last week, but that is exactly what he is advocating nonetheless because his entire recipe for fixing our political culture is built on a religious-like belief in shadowy crises that he feels are besetting the country.

In fact, even as he pretended to be offering a “fix” for our political gridlock, he offered no proof whatsoever that the problems he thinks we face are based in fact. His entire piece was based on bald-faced assumption, all are forces taken as a given with not a single word to actually prove that his perceptions were real problems, the sort we should engage in “real” conflict to resolve.

Sadly, the essential lie-stiffened backbone upon which he hung the skeleton of his argument is what passes for “deep thought” at our fetid universities these days.

No, It is NOT the ‘July Fourth’ Holiday, and Stop Saying It Is!

July 4, 2014 | Filed Under Ben Franklin, Civil Rights, Declaration of Independence, Founders, Free Speech, Freedom, History, James Madison, John Adams, Liberty, Sam Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Warner Todd Huston | No Comments

-By Warner Todd Huston

It is well known that John Adams had imagined that July second would be the day that future generations of Americans would remember as their day of independence from England, the nation’s birthday, if you will. It was, after all, on the second that it was proclaimed “(T)hat these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.”

But it was two days later that those gathered in defiance to the King declared a “Declaration of Independency” thereby adopting the famed document that carefully delineated the natural rights by which they claimed independence followed by a list of grievances that would explain why they invoked those rights.

So what are we celebrating? Is it our birth as a nation or are we celebrating the document of Independence? Early celebrations were mixed and a bit confused on that point. Additionally, celebrations on July fourth weren’t that common for a time after the Revolution was over. At first, not many felt a need to celebrate something that had happened and was over. It was time to move on from war in many American’s eyes.

238 Independence Days and Counting, But What Does it all Mean?

July 4, 2014 | Filed Under Civil Rights, Declaration of Independence, Founders, Free Speech, Freedom, History, Holiday, Human Rights, Independence Day, Liberty, Revolutionary War, Warner Todd Huston | No Comments

-By Warner Todd Huston

Today America enjoys the celebration of 238 years of existence as a nation by noting the day we declared our independence from our Mother nation, England. Sadly, that celebration has, for too many, become the “July Fourth” holiday, a day of picnics, rote parades, “white sales,” and for some a day off work. Of course, we should not and don’t celebrate any “July Fourth.” We celebrate Independence Day, the day we formally separated from our parent nation and took those first unsteady steps into the world as a nation of our own.

So, what is this Independence Day all about? Well, for one thing we celebrate the gifts that our Creator has given us. That’s right, our Founding Fathers started this nation celebrating the gifts of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and those natural rights given to us by God, rights that no man can take away from us, rights no man can legitimately prevent us from observing.

Contrary to the God averse America we have devolved into, the Declaration mentions God, the Creator, or the divine multiple times and the Founders rested their entire claim of liberty and freedom on the claim that no government can legitimately take away the natural rights that mankind should and must enjoy.

NARAL Board Member Urges Women to Have a Fu*K-In at Hobby Lobby For Revenge

Like every other liberal, a board member of the notorious infanticide group NARAL has proven she hasn’t a clue what the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling means by jumping to Twitter to suggest that women should have sex “in the glitter aisle” of every Hobby Lobby craft store in revenge for the ruling she neither likes nor understands.

NARAL board member Jessica Valenti displayed her ignorance for all to see with a June 30 Tweet saying, “Maybe women should organize a safe-sex fuck-in at every Hobby Lobby across the country. In the glitter aisle. JUST A THOUGHT.”

First of all it is pretty arrogant for her to claim she has the capability of having “a thought,” but I digress…

As LifeNews.com notes, Valenti was once a blogger for the mass baby murder advocates but has now become a board member.

Red Skinner: Obama Again Using ‘Regulation’ As A Weapon Against America

Barack Obama has become an expert at using his powers to regulate as a weapon to destroy Americans he doesn’t like. Just as he attempted to use the IRS to destroy conservatives, as he’s used the EPA to destroy our energy sector, as he used Obamacare to eliminate freedom of religion, Obama and his thuggish administration has now attempted to force a football team to stop using a name Obama doesn’t like.

On Wednesday Obama’s U.S. Patent and Trademark Office summarily eliminated the trademark protection for the Washington Redskins’ name and it was done purely for political reasons, not legal reasons.

Obama’s lackeys told the NFL team that their name was ‘disparaging” to native Americans and so the government canceled six federal trademarks for the team.

Woman Mailed Citation From Chicago Area Park District After Social Media Post

Apparently police are now cruising the web looking for people who make claims that leads one to believe they could or might or perhaps broke some jackbooted rule, regulation or law and then they are punishing them through the U.S. mails on this hearsay evidence.

The police department of a Chicago area forest preserve district used a local woman’s social media post as a basis to send her a citation in the mail after she made a Facebook post about a county park.

The woman says she wrote a Facebook post that was misinterpreted by Will County forest preserve police as an admission that she was violating park rules. It wasn’t long after she posted her comment that she received a notice of violation in the mail and told she owed the county a fine for illegal use of a park.

Michelle Obama Says Kids Should Monitor Parents for Racism

Taking a page out of the political handbook of every fascist society and dystopian Sci Fi novel, Michelle Obama is telling kids to monitor their parents for crimes against the state.

The woman who was never proud of her country until she and her husband were deposited in the White House spoke to a class in Topeka, Kansas last Friday where she told students to monitor their parents for racist speech because she and her hubby can only do so much without good little informants like them back home.

Obama told students that our laws “may no longer separate us” based on race. But she complained that the Constitution can’t force us to “eat together in the lunchroom, or live together in the same neighborhoods.” She then said, “There’s no court case against believing in stereotypes or thinking that certain kinds of hateful jokes or comments are funny.”

Fed. Judge Puts Halt to Abuse of Justice in Wisc. ‘John Doe’ Raids

-By Warner Todd Huston

For the last three years a Democrat affiliated Milwaukee County District Attorney has been engaged in a political jihad of sorts, using “secret subpoenas” and illegally invading homes and offices of a wide range of conservatives and Republicans in an “investigation” into collusion between activist groups and Wis. Gov. Scott Walker’s re-election campaign. At last, a federal judge has ordered that the illicit probe be halted on First Amendment grounds.

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm, two of his assistant DAs, and Special Prosecutor Francis Schmitz, launched a politically motivated investigation into whether or not Eric O’Keefe and his group the Wisconsin Club for Growth–a conservative activist group–illegally coordinated with Gov. Walker and other Republicans during the 2011 and 2012 recall election campaigns. The case was titled the “John Doe” investigation because all the accusations were made anonymously, many of the subpoenas were hidden behind a “secrecy rule”–meaning those accused could not even see them–and many of the proceedings were hidden from the public in secret court proceedings.

Also, as the wide-ranging search warrants were served, many of the accused were held and denied access to their lawyers. The raids were para-military styled, implemented in pre-dawn hours, and swept up not only business records, but personal records along with those of family members.

At last, a federal judge has ruled that this whole Democrat jihad amounts to a witch-hunt that is in violation of the rule of law. Worse, that it is drenched in violations of the rights of the accused not the least of which is their First Amendment rights.

Mass. Democrat Says Gov’t Should Control Media

That darned old media is just out of control and filled with “hate crimes,” Senator Ed Markey (D, Mass.) says. So, he thinks the best solution is that government should control everything we see and hear. What could go wrong with that, Mr. Orwell?

Markey has proposed a tax dollar-wasting “study” to find ways to force broadcast media from showing “hate crimes” to we stupid, uneducated Americans. Markey is here to save us from ourselves, you see.

As to that whole First Amendment, freedom of speech thing? Markey doesn’t see any reason why that should be a problem. Why? Well, he doesn’t really say, but just take his word for it, won’t you? He should change his name from Markey to Malarkey.

Of course, not everyone is hailing Malarkey’s idea as such a great idea. Gene Policinski, who works at the First Amendment Center, says that this is something we’d better notice. “Anytime government in any form or level looks to study our speech–even something that we might all consider detestable speech–we need to pay attention.”

Guns And Abortion: States Starting to Rebel Against Federal Control

As a conservative it is easy to look at Washington and find nothing but despair. Socialism is once again on the march with autocratic Democrats and left leaning “Republicans” all seeking to raise taxes, spend more, destroy the integrity of our borders, eviscerate our military, spy on us all, and impose a one-size-fits-all education scheme. In DC, the Democrats are practically indistinguishable from the Republicans. But a bright spot is seen in those states who are rebelling over this top down control by liberalizing gun laws, restricting abortion, and otherwise beginning to look for ways to assert their long dormant powers.

When the founders created this country they imagined that they had practically eliminated the chance for tyranny by creating a governing plan that featured a segmented system. The founders expected each segment to zealously look to protect their rightful powers.

The founders thought that Senators would fight for their states, Congressmen would fight for that segment of voters who elected them, Presidents would guard their own enumerated powers, states would strenuously reject any expansion of federal powers, counties would reject state interference and cities would vigorously enforce their own authority.

There was a time when states’ rights weren’t just some false call used to protect slavery!

Unfortunately, this country lost its once proud obstinacy and everyone began to fall to a socialist-styled assumption that the federal government should control everything from Washington D.C.

It is easy to imagine that the founders would have already started shooting at and/or tar and feathering government officials by now, but the tide of this un-American control from the top is starting to show some signs of collapse. A bloodless revolution seems to be forming.

Clinton Papers: Bill and Hillary Feared the Internet

The Clinton Library has released over 7,000 pages of documents from Bill’s presidency, likely hoping that what ever is in them will be “old news” by the time Hillary announces her bid for president. But one of the documents is very interesting and shows that Bill and Hillary really feared and hated the free flow of information on the Internet.

A report, titled “Communication Stream of Conspiracy Commerce,” was meant to “prove” Hillary’s claim that a “vast right wing conspiracy” was trying to destroy her and Bill. It also made to explain “the Internet influence.”

In 1998, Hillary appeared on NBC’s Today Show and said that a “vast right wing conspiracy” had been trying to destroy her husband “since the day he announced for president.”

Of course, her absurd claim became the joke of the decade and for years afterward conservatives were proud to belong to that “vast right win conspiracy.” The phrase became such a joke, though, that Clinton’s White House decided it had to “prove” the claim with a report linking that “conspiracy” all together.

Obama’s Jackbooted Thugs Withdrawing From Bundy Ranch in Nevada?

-By Warner Todd Huston

It is possible that Obama’s oppressive, jackbooted thugs are withdrawing from their attack on a Nevada rancher after stealing over 500 of his cattle. Government officials are saying that the situation has become “too dangerous” for its operatives and the situation is spiraling out of the government’s control, so they are quitting their efforts to destroy an American citizen’s livelihood… at least for now.

The situation had exploded into extreme measures by Obama’s Bureau of Land Management, a bureaucracy that wanted to destroy the livelihood of 67 year-old rancher Cliven Bundy whose family have been cattle ranching in that same area of Nevada bordering with Utah since the late 1800s.

BLM has been slowly destroying the cattle industry in that area for quite some time and Bundy is the last rancher left. But Bundy refuses to acquiesce to the government’s lies and jackbooted tactics. He and his family have been there for over one hundred years and he refuses to leave.

Why is the government trying to get him to quit the land? Because the government claims that with his cattle Bundy is harming the environment for the purportedly “endangered” desert tortoise.

This is an animal so “endangered” that the U.S. government itself has been euthanizing hundreds of them because there are too many for the land to support.

But the BML is indulging the lie that this tortoise is “endangered” and using that as an excuse to send hundreds of para military agents armed to the teeth and ready to kill anyone in their way to “save” an animal of which they themselves are killing hundreds.

In fact, the double lie about this turtle is that its population has exploded while living alongside Bundy’s cows the entire time. So it is clear that the cattle aren’t bothering the turtles at all.

The real nub of this matter is that Obama and his thuggish government has indulged a bacchanalia of land theft that has made other president’s land seizures pale in comparison. Bundy’s hundred-year-old ranch is in the way of Obama’s land theft and thus he was set up for destruction.

Michigan Muslims Upset Over Christian Church’s Easter Egg Hunt

Remember, liberals say that we need to be “tolerant” of Muslims in the U.S. because, gosh darn it, they are Americans just like you and me. While you are remembering that, Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan are trying to oppress a local Christian Church because it is hosting an Easter egg hunt. Proof that Muslims are just as American and tolerant as you and me.

As it happens, Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church sent a bunch of fliers about their secular Easter egg hunt to a local school district as an out reach effort into the community. The church says that the event is just a community event and does not feature any religious content.

The flier features images of Easter eggs and an Easter bunny. Naturally Muslims in Dearborn are furious and want to behead someone over the matter. OK, maybe just figuratively–for now–as they want to know who in the school district allowed the Church’s flier to be handed out to kids.

They will wait until they get in charge to begin the literal beheadings, of course.

Anyway, the Muslims claim that handing out the fliers is some sort of violation of Church and State–says people who want their church to become the state.

Yesterday I wrote a piece for Breitbbart.com about how the gay mafia destroyed the career of the new CEO of Mozilla, the company that makes the Firefox web browser. But in its acceptance of a Stalinist show trial and its elimination of the CEO, Mozilla announced that only gays should be allowed to have free speech.

I noted in my Breitbart piece that even gay rights supporter and well-known blogger Andrew Sullivan has said that this fascist attack on Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich “disgusts” him. This CEO has been destroyed by the company and its fascist gay activist string-pullers because: “tolerance.”

The whole controversy erupted when militant gays found out that new Mozilla’s CEO–who co-founded the company–donated $1,000 to California’s Prop 8 campaign back in 2008 (Prop 8 was a measure to protect traditional marriage). They found out because the state forced the donor lists to the campaign to be made public information.

Obama’s Newest Assault on Free Speech: The So-Called ‘Free Flow of Information Act’

Obama’s newest attack on free political speech protects neither journalists nor does it assure any “free flow of information.”

In addition to the IRS targeting conservative groups, individuals and their families–and now proposing rules to silence them during elections–and the new FCC plan to police the press by placing so-called “researchers” in newsrooms across the country, the Obama administration is pushing Congress to pass legislation that threatens the First Amendment rights of citizen journalists, grassroots activists, and bloggers by creating a federal government media licensing regime.

The “Free Flow of Information Act of 2013” (S. 987) would allow the federal government to determine who is and who is not a “journalist” and to grant special privileges to only the institutional and paid media.

By giving special legal protections to the journalistic-elite who meet the federal government’s definition of “legitimate” media, the bill would create the very type of government media licensing system that the Founding Fathers intended to prohibit with the First Amendment.

Principled Conservative vs Platform Republican? What’s the Difference?
-By Warner Todd Huston

In a recent op ed at the Illinois Review Terri Koyne, the Republican Chairman for Macoupin County, tried to explain the difference between a conservative and a “platform Republican.” I sort of understood her point but found the piece to be a bit muddled not to mention historically limited.

Like many of the center right side of the political aisle, Koyne is struggling with reconciling a vote for today’s Republican Party and sticking with true conservative principles. The problem is, voting Republican is not always voting for conservative ideas.

“When someone used to say they were a conservative,” Koyne said “it meant the whole package–socially and fiscally.”

I understand what she is trying to get at, but this isn’t exactly true. After all in the 30s, 40s, and 50s a “conservative” had precisely nothing at all to do with “social issues.”

But the stories are undeniable. Obamacre is hurting Americans from coast to coast. Are you telling us, Senator Reid, that all these thousands of Americans are liars?

The man named Hassan took his place in line during the public comments and when it was his turn to speak he prefaced his comments with loud chanting of Islamic prayers. He then went on to demand that the city begin patrols of the parks because people used them for “sexual activities.”

The Muslim would not tell the council where he lived claiming he feared for the safety of his family but said he lived near Westland.

The five Houston Independent School District bus drivers had “disciplinary letters” placed in their employment files for using a back channel to pray together after another driver’s 12-year-old daughter was run down while walking home from school on December 16, the media reported.

In response to this unfair disciplinary action, several drivers, their union representatives, and local ministers gathered in front of the Houston schools administration building to publicly protest the move and also to publicly pray for a resolution to the situation.

After being hung out to dry by network executives, Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson is thinking of dumping A&E and looking for another cable network to air his show.

Robertson is reportedly quite unhappy with how network executives handled the whole situation after an interview the Duck Commander gave to GQ magazine erupted in controversy in December.

The Robertson family feels that executives abandoned them when gay advocacy groups began attacking Phil Robertson over his comments about homosexuality and only relented when it became clear that the network would take a financial hit because of executives’ actions.

“A&E messed with the wrong redneck,” a source close to the show told the media. “Phil has agreed to return, but he’s already working on getting out their contracts.”

In a December 28 Facebook posting advertising its article on the A&E network’s decision to reinstate Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, the Denver Post called Robertson a “hate-speech spewer.” So much for an unbiased reporting of the news.

To flack its December 28 article titled, “‘Duck Dynasty’ debacle winners and losers,” by television critic, Joanne Ostrow, the Post threw up a blurb on Facebook saying that A&E “welcomed patriarch and hate-speech spewer Phil Robertson” back to the show.

“The feathers are no longer flying,” the Facebook blurb reads. “For now, the “Duck Dynasty” debacle is settled. The network, A&E, has welcomed patriarch and hate-speech spewer Phil Robertson back into the fold. So who were the winners and losers in this sad episode?”

Many of the comments on the Facebook page take the Post to task for its extreme bias.

B-List Actor Calls LA Gov. Jindal ‘Dickbrain’ For Supporting ‘Duck Dynasty’ Star

Gay British actor Alan Cumming, was not very happy with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal for coming to the support of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. In fact, Cumming called Jindal a “dickbrain” for coming to Robertson’s support.

Cumming, who starred in such massive, important cinematic hits as Spy Kids and Smurfs 2 and is now a bit player in the TV show The Good Wife, also noted that he wants to institute a “socialist utopia” in the USA.

The homosexual British actor made these comments on his Twitter feed after he belatedly found out that Bobby Jindal came to Robertson’s support.

On his Twitter account, Cumming noted that Jindal said that the “left may control Hollywood, but not the hearts and minds of a majority of Americans.” Then the actor added, “Yet US voted left. Twice.” The actor added the hashtag “#dickbrain.”

The Robertson family leaving their Louisiana church on December 22.

Phil Robertson has finally spoken out about the controversy that has rocked his reality TV show family after GQ magazine quoted him on his feelings about the “sin” of homosexuality. Robertson says he is a “lover of humanity,” but is still not backing off from his comments at all.

The Daily Mail reported on December 22 that Robertson was defiant toward his critics over what he said to the fashion magazine.

“I will not give or back off from my path,” Robertson said.

But, Robertson wanted to point out that he wasn’t saying he hated gays. “I love all men and women. I am a lover of humanity, not a hater,” he said.

CNN’s Brit Twit Piers Morgan Says 1st Amend. Should Only Cover Speech HE Likes

December 22, 2013 | Filed Under 1st Amendment, 2nd Amendment, Anti-Americanism, Bible, Christianity, CNN, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Free Speech, Freedom, Government, Guns, Journalism, Liberals, Liberty, Media, Media Bias, Progressives, Religion, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

British twit Piers Morgan, host of one of CNN’s lowest rated evening talk shows, has made it clear many times that he is wholly ignorant about the U.S. Constitution. Usually he reveals his ignorance about the Second Amendment, but this time he’s shown his stupidity about the First saying that freedom of speech shouldn’t cover speech he doesn’t like.

Foreign citizen Morgan was naturally responding to the current controversy over comments made by Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson. Morgan says that Robertson shouldn’t be allowed to have his freedom of speech or his choice of religion. Robertson should only be allowed to say what Piers Morgan thinks is proper.

Morgan idiotically jumped to his over used Twitter feed to reveal his latest nonsense saying, “Just as the 2nd Amendment shouldn’t protect assault rifle devotees, so the 1st Amendment shouldn’t protect vile bigots. #PhilRobertson.”

It is painfully clear that this interloper from England has never read the U.S. Constitution and doesn’t understand it. I guess the “ye olde English language” it was written in is too complicated for Morgan to grasp.

SUSPENDED: Gay Group Attacks Duck Dynasty Star, But Ignored Hate-Filled Alec Baldwin

December 19, 2013 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Bible, Cable, Christianity, Conservatives, Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Free Speech, Freedom, Gay Marriage, Gays, Government, Journalism, Liberals, Liberty, Media Bias, PCism, Progressives, Religion, Republicans, Rights, Society/Culture, TV, Warner Todd Huston, Western Civilization | Comments Off

Gay groups don’t care about gay slurs. They care about liberalism. So, when a liberal utters a gay slur it is brushed off as unimportant. But if a conservative seems to say something bad about gays, why, it is the end of the world. That is the case here with the recent condemnation that the gay group GLAAD doled out to Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson.

The gay group GLAAD came out to excoriate Phil Robertson of A&E’s reality TV hit Duck Dynasty for his comments about gays in a hostile interview in the upcoming issue of GQ magazine.

As soon as the interview became public knowledge, GLAAD ran to Entertainment Weekly which posted the complaint in a piece with the lie-filled title, “‘Duck Dynasty’ star makes anti-gay comments; GLAAD slams.”

In the interview Robertson laid out the typical, Christian, Bible-based ideas about homosexuality and in fact just paraphrased Corinthians in his comments that homosexuality is wrong but that he still loves gays as human beings.

Before we get to GLAAD’s complaint, here is what Robertson said in the GQ interview:
