  • Mr. Freemarket

    Hillary knows to never bite the hand that feeds you.

    In other words, if democrats didn’t have double-standards, they would have no standards at all.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Hillary has no interest in men.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    This is what democrats call “working behind the scenes.”

    In case the democrats in Louisiana haven’t figured it out yet, Obama treats them just like coal miners. In other words, he knows you will still vote for democrats while treating you with contempt.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Incorrect. Democrat-socialist math….

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Michele Obama has no problem enslaving your grandchildren to pay for her vacations.

    After all….she has it coming. Barack never took her anywhere when he was paying.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    This cartoon is completely incorrect. Barack doesn’t wave at whites.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Where is my safe space???

  • Mr. Freemarket

    And turn a pretty profit in the process.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Why do college professors make more than the guy who cuts the lawn?

  • Mr. Freemarket

    And ISIS isn’t Islamic, either.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    That’s what happens when insurance companies have to pay for stuff that is mandated to be “free.”

    But don’t worry…pretty soon only the government will be paying for healthcare.

    Think you have problems finding a doctor now? You ain’t seen nothing yet.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    That brown water is full of Obama’s and democrat promises. And it doesn’t smell like roses either.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Fine to attack you local cops. Just don’t try storming the White House.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Don’t worry….we will treat you with the same compassion and respect that we have shown for our vets and our American Indians.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Hillary is trying to arrange a private meeting to “work out their differences.”

    BTW…in what world would any government give Hillary a security clearance???

  • Mr. Freemarket

    If Hillary or Bill regularly attended any Christian church, I would not attend that church.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    With regards to the photo of Cosby and Clinton….maybe there is something to blacks not being treated as well as whites by the law.

  • http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Our-World-Soross-campaign-of-global-chaos-464770

    The first thing that we see is the megalomaniacal nature of Soros’s philanthropic project. No corner of the globe is unaffected by his efforts. No policy area is left untouched.

    Liberal media outlets in the US have ignored the leak of thousands of emails from billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundation by the activist hacker group DCLeaks. The OSF is the vehicle through which Soros has funneled billions of dollars over the past two decades to non-profit organizations in the US and throughout the world.

    According to the documents, Soros has given more than $30 million to groups working for Hillary Clinton’s election in November, making him her largest single donor. So it is likely the case that the media’s support for Clinton has played some role in the mainstream media’s bid to bury the story.

    It is also likely however, that at least some news editors failed to understand why the leaked documents were worth covering. Most of the information was already public knowledge. Soros’s massive funding of far-left groups in the US and throughout the world has been documented for more than a decade.

    But failing to see the significance of the wider story because many of the details were already known is a case of missing the forest for the trees. The DCLeaks document dump is a major story because it exposes the forest of Soros’s funding networks.

    The first thing that we see is the megalomaniacal nature of Soros’s philanthropic project. No corner of the globe is unaffected by his efforts. No policy area is left untouched.

    On the surface, the vast number of groups and people he supports seem unrelated. After all, what does climate change have to do with illegal African immigration to Israel? What does Occupy Wall Street have to do with Greek immigration policies? But the fact is that Soros-backed projects share basic common attributes.

    They all work to weaken the ability of national and local authorities in Western democracies to uphold the laws and values of their nations and communities.

    They all work to hinder free markets, whether those markets are financial, ideological, political or scientific. They do so in the name of democracy, human rights, economic, racial and sexual justice and other lofty terms.

    In other words, their goal is to subvert Western democracies and make it impossible for governments to maintain order or for societies to retain their unique identities and values.

    Federal authorities have been aware of the alleged attacker, 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui, of the Roanoke area, for some time, sources familiar with the case told ABC News. In the past year, he traveled to Turkey and may have tried to sneak into Syria, where ISIS is recruiting and inspiring sympathizers from across the world, sources said.

    Leaked Docs: Soros Aims to Enlarge Electorate by 10 Million Voters by 2018
    Soros has bankrolled efforts to challenge voter ID laws, register minority voters

    A top priority of liberal billionaire George Soros is to enlarge the U.S. electorate by 10 million voters by 2018, according to leaked documents.

    The plan to grow the electorate by millions of voters was discussed during a May 2014 board meeting of the Open Society Foundations, a liberal grant-making group founded by Soros. A 220-page guide detailing the plan was among more than 2,500 hacked Soros documents released by DC Leaks, which publishes documents from influential officials around the world.

    The guide covers strategies and tactics the group will employ in the United States from 2015 to 2018. The top goals listed by the guide are to “advance electoral reform” and “combat suppression.”

    BUT WE KNOW the REAL goal is to destroy America as we know it.

    Turn it into another 3rd world cesspool – and the plan is working!

  • What happens when you’re STUPID enough to start paying ransoms:

    http://freebeacon.com/national-security/state-dept-warns-iran-seeking-capture-u-s-citizens/

    The State Department issued a warning on Monday urging U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to Iran, which has made the detention of Americans a priority.

    The latest travel advisory, which emphasizes Iran’s desire to capture U.S. citizens, comes on the heels of a growing scandal over the Obama administration’s decision to pay Iran $400 million in cash on the same day that it freed several U.S. hostages.

    The payment has been cast by lawmakers and others as a ransom payment and prompted concern among U.S. officials that Iran is making arresting Americans a priority.

    The travel warning is meant to “highlight the risk of arrest and detention of U.S. citizens, particularly dual national Iranian-Americans,” according to a State Department announcement on Monday. “Foreigners, in particular dual nationals of Iran and Western countries including the United States, continue to be detained or prevented from leaving Iran.”

    “U.S. citizens traveling to Iran should very carefully weigh the risks of travel and consider postponing their travel,” the warning adds. “U.S. citizens residing in Iran should closely follow media reports, monitor local conditions, and evaluate the risks of remaining in the country.”

    An Albuquerque elementary school is raising eyebrows after an assistant principal told teachers to stop calling students “boys and girls.”

    A Carlos Rey Elementary School assistant principal sent teachers a letter ordering them to no longer refer to students as boys and girls starting this month.

    The “Gender Identity Procedural Directive” also told teachers to eliminate gender in their classrooms.

    Albuquerque Public Schools says the assistant principal made a mistake and she was immediately addressing the overreach.

  • http://www.politico.com/story/2016/08/trump-shut-down-clinton-foundation-227263

    Clinton faces late summer scandal wave

    Liberal moonbats don’t care, still voting for her.

    Judicial Watch — the same conservative group who is behind [the lawsuit that is causing much of her woes] — on Monday released 725 emails from Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin, some of which showed the influence peddling that flowed between the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

    Trump, who has been attacking Clinton for months on her foundation and email woes, tried to twist the knife. He issued a statement calling on the Clintons to shut down their foundation, which he called “the most corrupt enterprise in political history.”

    “Hillary Clinton is the defender of the corrupt and rigged status quo. The Clintons have spent decades as insiders lining their own pockets and taking care of donors instead of the American people,” Trump said in a statement released through his campaign. “It is now clear that the Clinton Foundation is the most corrupt enterprise in political history. What they were doing during Crooked Hillary’s time as Secretary of State was wrong then, and it is wrong now. It must be shut down immediately.”

    Later Monday, during a speech in Akron, Trump called for a special prosecutor to be appointed to investigate Clinton.

    He’s dreaming again.

    People throughout the world are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with immigration levels which are higher than any time since the Second World War, according to a new survey published Monday.

    At least six out of 10 people in France and Belgium, which have recently suffered deadly jihadist attacks, believe immigration has had a “negative impact”, said the Ipsos polling institute.

    Similar figures were found in Russia, Hungary and also Italy, which has had to deal with large numbers of migrants fleeing the Middle East or Africa and seeking to forge new lives in Europe.

    In all, 49 percent of those surveyed in 22 countries said there were “too many immigrants” and 46 percent felt “immigration is causing their country to change in ways they don’t like,” Ipsos said in a statement.

  • USA TODAY Sports investigation raises questions about Rio cops, Lochte incident
    Taylor Barnes and David Meeks, USA TODAY Sports

    Was Lochte’s account essentially accurate?

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/olympics/rio-2016/2016/08/21/investigation-ryan-lochte-rio-olympics-authorities/89082232/

    Seven days after an incident that will in part define the Rio Olympics, details are becoming clearer about what happened during a gas station encounter between four U.S. swimmers and security guards, and not everyone has concluded Ryan Lochte and his teammates are entirely in the wrong or that the account offered by Rio authorities is entirely accurate.

    Lochte has admitted he exaggerated his initial description of how the four men were stopped in their taxi and robbed by men who flashed badges, as well as his sensational allegation of a gun being held to his forehead.

    But a narrative of the night’s events – constructed by USA TODAY Sports from witness statements, official investigations, surveillance videos and media reports – supports Lochte’s later account in which he said he thought the swimmers were being robbed when they were approached at a gas station by armed men who flashed badges, pointed guns at them and demanded money.

    A Brazilian judge says police might have been hasty in determining the security guards, by how they dealt with the swimmers, did not commit a robbery. A lawyer who has practiced in Brazil for 25 years says she does not think the actions of Lochte and teammate Jimmy Feigen constitute the filing of a false police report as defined under Brazilian law.

    “We don’t have toxicological confirmation, but it’s presumably spice, which is a synthetic type of cannabis or marijuana. And of course, because it’s synthetic, nobody for sure knows what active ingredients are in there, the strength is variable,” Dr. Marc Eckstein, the Los Angeles Fire Department medical director and EMS bureau commander explained.

    Florida father killed in online-dating setup

    The night before police found Adam Hilarie dead in his kitchen, the 27-year-old Central Florida father went bowling with a woman he met through the online dating site PlentyOfFish, Auburndale police said Monday.

    They went back to his place, and she texted him later: I had a good time and would like to see you again.

    She saw him the next night, when on Friday she brought three men to rob Hilarie of TVs, an Xbox and an iPhone, and one of them shot him in the head, Deputy Chief Andy Ray said at a news conference.

    “In cases like this, it’s easy for us to put ourselves in the shoes of the family,” Ray said, as he detailed the arrest of four people in connection with the killing — including 18-year-old Hailey Bustos, who went on the date with him.

    Andre Warner, 26, Gary Gray, 31, and Joshua Ellington, 26, were also also arrested on charges of conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery with a firearm and first-degree murder. Ray said he didn’t know how the robbery escalated.

    A 91-year-old concealed pistol license holder shot a man who was attempting to rob him Monday in Eastpointe, according to police.

    The victim was exiting his car around 10:15 a.m. and heading into the Rite Aid on Gratiot near Nine Mile when an unknown suspect in his late 20s approached, Sgt. Martin Campbell said.

    “He attempted to rob (the victim) and (the victim) had a CPL and ended up shooting the suspect,” Campbell said. “It’s as simple as that.”

    The would-be robber was struck in the neck and fled across Gratiot, where he was arrested by responding officers.

    “Two detectives found him walking over there,” Campbell said. “He had a gunshot wound to the neck but he was talking and acting erratic.”

    The erratic behavior initially prompted alarm bells for his intended target, Campbell said.

    “The suspect approached and began to act erratic. (The victim) told him he had a gun, he warned him three or four times and even had the gun pointed at him,” Campbell said. “But the suspect kept coming and pointed an unknown object at the victim.”

    Rodeo clown fired for comments about gender identity at Calhoun Co. fair

    “You’re either a boy or a girl, y’all understand,” said “Rockin’ Robbie Hodges, an independent contractor for Lost Nations Rodeo Company. “If you’re confused then you need help, okay?”

    “Everybody in here who’s really sure they’re a boy raise your hand,” said Hodges. “If you can tinkle on a fire you go to the boys room, if you can’t, you go to the girls room, right?”

    The crowd seemed to laugh at Hodge’s comments, however fair organizers are far from laughing.

    HIS MISTAKE:

    It’s OK to indoctrinate and confuse kids, but when you start telling them how it is you face getting fired.
