The Colorado Planned Parenthood Shooting– Blame the GOP Our Version of Saudi Wahhabi Islam

The Republican Party going into 2016 is in hock to extremists. It is fittingly symmetrical that the Planned Parenthood clinic workers were gunned down in Dr. Jim Dobson's town. "He was handing out anti-Obama fliers" said the alleged shooter's neighbor on CNN on Saturday. "No more baby parts" NBC quoted a law source as saying that the alleged shooter said.Whatever the motivation of the Colorado Planned Parenthood shootings the incident makes me think about the fact that the Republican Party … [Read more...]

Make The Caliphate Great Again! | Donald J Trump for President photo used by permission To get Donald Trump elected ISIS will attack the USA before 2016.

In a yearlong investigation of sexual misconduct by U.S. law enforcement, The Associated Press uncovered about 1,000 officers who lost their badges in a six-year period for rape, sodomy and other sexual assault; sex crimes that included possession of child pornography-- The number is unquestionably an under-count because it represents only those officers whose licenses to work in law enforcement were revoked, and not all states take such action.
