Judge Declares Polygamy a Legal Right

polygamy A judge in Utah has said polygamy is a legal right. Of course he did since the Supreme Court ruled on the moral equivalency of same-sex sexuality and heterosexuality. Eleven years ago “Justice Antonin Scalia warned in Lawrence v. Texas that the Supreme Court majority had created ‘a massive disruption of the current social order’ by striking down a Texas law barring sodomy.” Justice Scalia went on to predict the following: In the nineteenth century, the courts agreed that it was necessary Read more [...]

Southern Utah University Removes Harry Reid's Name from Building

reid picking nose Well, this is a little embarrassing. Harry Reid graduated from Southern Utah University and for a while now his name has graced one of their buildings… but it won’t for much longer. Several months ago, some concerned citizens met with Wyatt, calling for the removal of Reid’s name from the center. “We had people step up and pledge money towards removing his name. In five days I received pledges totaling $40,000 – in just five days,” said Cedar City Councilman Paul Cozzens. The Read more [...]

Dems More Afraid of Climate Change Than ISIS

climate change Never mind the fact that they’re beheading captives and videotaping it for the world to see, or that they’re brutally murdering their way through Iraq and Syria, or even that they’re sending taunting tweets showing they’re already here and warning that an attack on the homeland is imminent. Nope, that’s not enough for Democrats, who, in a recent Pew poll, said that climate change is more of a threat to the U.S. than ISIS. The poll shows that 68 percent of Democrats believe that global Read more [...]

California Passes First US Plastic Bag Ban

california congressmen

California lawmakers have approved a measure that would make the state the first to impose a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags.

SB270 cleared the Senate on a 22-15 vote Friday and sent to Gov. Jerry Brown. It was approved by the Assembly a day earlier.

Senators who had previously opposed the bill, including incoming Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, a Los Angeles Democrat, this time supported the measure after protections were added for plastic bag manufacturers.

Medicare may begin covering 'end-of-life discussions'

Five years after it exploded into a political conflagration over “death panels,” the issue of paying doctors to talk to patients about end-of-life care is making a comeback, and such sessions may be covered for the 50 million Americans on Medicare as early as next year. Bypassing the political process, private insurers have begun reimbursing doctors for these “advance care planning” conversations as interest in them rises along with the number of aging Americans. People are living longer Read more [...]

Mideast CIA Expert: Obama Switched Sides in War on Terror

obama bows It’s an explosive charge, one that puts the president’s motives into question. A former CIA agent bluntly told WND, America has switched sides in the war on terror under President Obama. Clare Lopez was willing to say what a few members of Congress have confided to WND in private, but declined to say on-the-record. She said the global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free of Shariah,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist Read more [...]

Prominent Islamic Cleric Justifies Foley Beheading: 'Islam is a Religion of Beheading'

bloody sword If you recall, we covered a Muslim imam who described how to kill the infidels, telling his disciples to enjoy themselves while cutting the throats of their enemies. Now, jihadi cleric Hussein bin Mahmoud claims "Islam is a religion of beheading." It's not that we needed this cleric to tell us this, but once again, I don't see Muslims out in the streets in mass saying this is not so. In fact, the silence of their opposition to any of what Islamists are doing throughout the world is deafening. Read more [...]

Obama on Strategy to Beat ISIS: 'I Dunno'

obama confused1 I can’t recall any time when a president gave a press conference about some foreign military crisis just to say, “We don’t have a strategy yet.” And yet, that’s precisely what President Obama did in talking about confronting ISIS, the Islamic caliphate army that has taken over much of Iraq and Syria. Besides make Obama look like even more of a weakling than he usually does, the comment does a couple of things. One, it signals ISIS that they’ve got an “all-clear” from the White Read more [...]

Labor Day Exhausted: 40-Hour Work Week Grows to 47-60 Hours

Liberals Angry Burger King Moves HQ Out of US Because of High Taxes

bk canada The Left has gone into an apoplectic nose dive over the story that Burger King may reincorporate in Canada to lower its taxes. Many are calling the move “un-American.” How so? How is it unAmerican to want to save money for its investors? Wasn’t one of the arguments for same-sex marriage that married couples could take advantage of the tax code for married couples? Why is it OK for homosexuals to save money on their taxes but not Burger King? How is it that the Left has no problem with Read more [...]
