Sunday Talks – Trey Gowdy -vs- CBS John Dickerson

In virtually every substantive interview with prosecutors, despite entreaties to simply be truthful, she has not been truthful, on matters great and small, many pertaining to her background and some relating to the circumstances of the incident itself.I doubted the veracity of the maid's story from the very outset of this case, and stated so here. I became ever more sure that DSK was innocent and gave my reasons here.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles) came out swinging against Republicans in Congress on Saturday as she addressed the unemployed during a forum in Inglewood.Since the Tea Party is in fact a grass-roots movement of the people, Maxine Waters is actually telling the people to go to hell. Thanks Maxine; after almost three years of Obama, most of us have been living in hell quite long enough. Telling people with the right solutions to "go to hell" will make the problem worse, not better.
The event occurred a day after new statistics were released showing that California's jobless rate last month went up to 12%, from 11.8%. California now has the second-highest rate of unemployment in the nation, trailing only Nevada at 12.9%, and its jobless rate is well above the U.S. average of 9.1%.
Waters vowed to push Congress to focus on creating more jobs. "I'm not afraid of anybody," said Waters. "This is a tough game. You can't be intimidated. You can't be frightened. And as far as I'm concerned, the 'tea party' can go straight to hell."
|Aliens Pissed Off|
Aliens may destroy humanity to protect other civilisations, say scientists. Rising greenhouse emissions may tip off aliens that we are a rapidly expanding threat, warns a report for NASA.Why would aliens give two hoots in hell about what we are doing to our planet? How would that effect them? Would our alleged "global warming" somehow affect planets in the Cassiopeia constellation? Ridiculous.
It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.
Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth's atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain.

His natural inquisitiveness — plus a dose of idealism and commitment — is why Box is intent on participating in his first-ever act of civil disobedience. The cause? Trying to convince President Obama that approving the extension of a controversial oil sands pipeline — the proposed $7 billion, 1,702-mile Keystone XL — would be the equivalent of lighting a fuse to the biggest carbon bomb on the planet.Hey Jason, wake up. The "global warming" hoax is over. You lost. As for the Guardian's transparently flattering description of Box, "natually inquisitive, idealism and commitment," I would add: naive, credulous, lacking a healthy dose of skepticism for climate disaster scenarios, prone to accept politically motivated scientific theories without any substantial basis in fact.
|Scary White Guy|
As we highlighted last month, a longer PSA [public service announcement] recently produced by the DHS overwhelmingly went to significant lengths to portray white Americans as the most likely terrorists, despite the fact that the 126 people who were indicted on terrorist-related charges in the United States over the last two years were all Muslim.That previous Infowars report on DHS "white people as terrorists" went viral:
Bizarrely, the majority of the people shown reporting suspicious activity to authorities were portrayed as non-whites.
Despite the DHS’ claims to the contrary, many saw the ad as being deliberately racially motivated. Some concluded that this was merely a nod to political correctness while others viewed it as part of a pattern of demonizing white middle class Americans – many of whom are furious with the federal government for all manner of different reasons - as the DHS increasingly targets its anti-terror apparatus against politically motivated citizens.Instead of protecting Americans against Islamic terrorism, Big Sis instead uses the Department of Homeland Security to slander political opponents. I can hardly wait to flush Big Sis along with the Master of Disaster who is her boss.
At the rate President Barack Obama's policies are destroying wealth, the pool of millionaire taxpayers may be too shallow to provide the windfall the redistributors hope for.Liberals never get it. They want the golden eggs and insist on cutting open the magic goose to get them. Alas, once you destroy the engine of prosperity, prosperity disappears. Heavy taxation on entrepreneurs is like strapping a boulder onto the backs of runners and expecting them to run at the same speed. As Finley puts it:
Plunging stock markets over the past two weeks have ravaged portfolios and caused lots of people to slip a few rungs down the economic ladder. Last Monday alone, investors lost $1.2 trillion. Imagine.
But that's the problem with so-called millionaire's taxes. They only work if the rich stay rich, and high tax and spend policies that slow growth, rock financial markets and take the reward out of risk-taking produce a lot of ex-millionaires.And when those millionaires become ex-millionaires, they shut down marginal businesses and lay off workers. You can't make payroll with cute bumper-sticker slogans. It takes moola.
|London on Fire|
As the polluted flood (it is not a tide; it will not go back down again) of spite, greed and violence washes on to their very doorsteps, well-off and influential Left-wingers at last meet the filthy thing they have created, and which they ignored when it did not affect them personally.The U.K. has been the most extreme example of leftist liberalism on the planet. Mass immigration of hostile and unproductive third-worlders into the country; huge welfare benefits for lazy people who refuse to work even when jobs are plentiful; a wimpy and apologetic police force and anemic justice system that is more inclined to prosecute those who defend themselves than the hordes of hoodlums who are currently burning down London:
No doubt they will find ways to save themselves. But they will not save the country. Because even now they will not admit that all their ideas are wrong, and that the policies of the past 50 years – the policies they love – have been a terrible mistake. I have heard them in the past few days clinging to their old excuses of non-existent ‘poverty’ and ‘exclusion’.
The great majority of the looters, smashers, burners and muggers have not been arrested and never will be. Our long-enfeebled police were so useless at the start that thousands of crimes were committed with total impunity.Read Hitchins' righteous rant here.
Now we know why they don’t call themselves ‘police forces’ any more. But they aren’t ‘services’ either, for they certainly don’t serve us or do what we want them to do, preferring to arrest us for defending ourselves. The criminals, who are cunning without being intelligent, all know this. They will wait for the next chance.
Problems cannot be addressed unless people are willing to tell the truth. As with so many other things in this country, we stick our heads in the sand and refuse to speak out about it.The problem is that blacks are much more violent than any other ethnic group. This has been known for many years. I remember back in 1972, seeing the FBI crime report for the first time (published in a magazine) that showed the number of violent crimes per 1,000 (or some such number) of population. Blacks were the worst of the bunch. Asians were the least violent, followed by whites, followed by Hispanics, with blacks bringing up the rear. That was a real eye-opener for me, and gave me my first inkling that "racism" wasn't all about skin color. People were prejudiced against blacks because they were afraid for their lives.

meeting at Clayborn Temple. More than two dozen people gathered outside
the church in support of the upcoming dedication of the Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. memorial in Washington.
The group Muslims Against Crusades has demanded strict Sharia law in the east London community - banning gambling, smoking and alcohol.A sign hangs on a building that says:
Dozens of posters had been put up - quickly removed by the council - insisting: "You are entering a Shariah controlled zone - Islamic rules enforced."
Lowering the nation’s rating to one notch below AAA, the credit rating company said “political brinkmanship” in the debate over the debt had made the U.S. government’s ability to manage its finances “less stable, less effective and less predictable.” It said the bipartisan agreement reached this week to find at least $2.1 trillion in budget savings “fell short” of what was necessary to tame the nation’s debt over time and predicted that leaders would not be likely to achieve more savings in the future.Standard and Poors also took a potshot at the Republicans, stating “The majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues," That means the Republicans continue to resist raising taxes in a significant recession, which would be even more disastrous to any recovery.
We didn't get downgraded because of the Tea Party. We got downgraded because of TARP, the auto bailouts, the stimulus, Obamacare, QE1 & 2, Cash for Clunkers, and a million other wastes of money. Those weren't Republican or conservative initiatives. In fact, with a few notorious exceptions, they were resisted mightily by virtually every Republican in elected office. (and those who didn't resist have found themselves out of office). Hell, the Tea Party started to protest the explosion of spending coming out of DC!Psota is a San Francisco attorney. I know how it feels to be the only conservative in that liberal city, but Psota isn't really alone. Do link to his site.
Indeed, S&P specifically complains about the failure of the debt agreement to make a serious attempt to reduce spending. That wasn't the Tea Party's fault. Obama and the Democrats in Congress were the ones who pressed to preserve spending at today's mind boggling levels. As Erik Erickson points out, S&P has indicated that only a plan with a minimum of $4 trillion in cuts would have impressed them. Well that was the Tea Party's plan, a plan that has been denounced as unserious and terroristic.
We’re Reaping the Harvest We’ve SownRead the original document here. (Hat tip American Renaissance)
Statement of Alderman Bob Donovan and Alderman Joe Dudzik
August 5, 2011
As elected officials, we are shocked and concerned about the senseless violence
displayed by the large mob outside State Fair Park last night. On behalf of our city, we
apologize to the victims and good patrons who endured or witnessed such horrific
Sadly, what transpired near State Fair Park last night is only the most recent mob riot
spawned by a culture of violence that has been brewing in Milwaukee for some time.
And let’s face it, it also has much to do with a deteriorating African American culture in
Are large groups of Hispanics or Hmong going out in large mobs and viciously attacking
We are reaping the harvest that we’ve sown.
There are repercussions for the staggering illegitimacy rate in our African American
There are repercussions for having little to no positive male involvement in the lives of
African American children.
There are repercussions for single-parent homes where children aren’t properly
supervised, and where they aren’t held responsible for their actions.
There are repercussions for a staggering, decades-long near 50% unemployment rate for
African American males in our city.
There are repercussions for having a failing public school system, and an outdated
juvenile justice system.
There are repercussions for having one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the U.S.,
and for having kids raising kids.
The community was shocked when the violent mob of African American youths attacked
white people in Kilbourn Reservoir Park on July 3. Then, a few eyebrows were raised at
the F-bombs and shocking disregard and disrespect for Milwaukee police officers shown
by a large and unruly group of African Americans at N. Richards St. and W. North Ave.
last Saturday night.
And now this horrific mob violence near State Fair Park.
But for those who live in some city neighborhoods, this violence has been like a steady
rain for far too many years now. And the reality is this summer it seems we have five or
six shootings each and every weekend!
Unfortunately, this behavior is now all too common in some parts of the Milwaukee
Our hearts go out to the older generation of African Americans in this city who remember
when their community had one of the HIGHEST marriage rates in the city. Sadly, many
of these same residents are now scared of their own children and grandchildren.
Although we hope our law enforcement agencies are able to bring some of the thugs who
were involved in these attacks to justice, no amount of millions of dollars in government
spending or resources is going to truly address this problem.
We can no longer wish this violence would just go away, and we cannot ignore it; we
must see it for what it truly is.
We cannot begin to address the underlying causes of the violence without change. We
believe that change must come from within the African American community, where new
seeds must be sown.
WEST ALLIS - Witnesses tell Newsradio 620 WTMJ and TODAY'S TMJ4 of a mob of young people attacking innocent fair-goers at the end of the opening night of State Fair, with some callers claiming a racially-charged scene.The question is, why is this happening in "post-racial" America? What do we do about it? It's time, I think, for "right to carry" be an amendment to the Constitution. Thugs looking to beat and rob people for a thrill may reconsider their choice after a few of them are shot dead in the act.
Milwaukee Police confirmed there were assaults outside the fair.
Witnesses' accounts claim everything from dozens to hundreds of young black people beating white people as they left State Fair Thursday night.
Authorities have not given official estimates of the number of people involved in the attacks.
"It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people," said Norb Roffers of Wind Lake in an interview with Newsradio 620 WTMJ. He left the State Fair Entrance near the corner of South 84th Street and West Schlinger Avenue in West Allis.
"They were attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever."
"It was 100% racial," claimed Eric, an Iraq war veteran from St. Francis who says young people beat on his car.
|Frank Borzellieri: Blacklisted From|
His Teaching Profession
Readers not familiar with his name should know that Frank Borzellieri as a school board member in Queens in the 1990s fought a tremendous battle against multicultural indoctrination and anti-Americanism in the schools. I don't know of anyone in America who, as a school board member or in any job in education, took such positions and fought for them so strongly. He did what thousands of others should have done but did not do. He is an American hero.

|The New Spider-Man|
I have watched, for the better part of a year, a number of decent human beings including, but not limited to, Pamela Geller, Paul Belien, Diana West, the Baron and Dymphna from the Gates of Vienna blog and many others, being at the receiving end of a vicious smear campaign from Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs which is unlike anything I have seen in my life. After engaging in an insane witch-hunt on imaginary Fascists, whose ranks seem to grow every month, Mr. Johnson now suddenly chooses to look the other way in silence when very real Fascists use violence to silence their critics in a major Western city. I admit that makes me angry, and I think I have the right to be so.The only thing Breivik said about Geller in his 1546 page manifesto is that Geller "is a decent human being." Only the worse kind of liar would attempt to translate that simple opinion into a basis for Breivik's rampage.
The time has now come for Mr. Johnson to apologise in public to the numerous people he has smeared since the fall of 2007, starting with the ones I have mentioned above. It's not their credibility that's on the line here. It's his. If he continues to undermine those confronting Islamic infiltration, it will become increasingly difficult for LGF to present itself as an anti-Jihad website at all. At some point, the rapidly shrinking number of people in the northern hemisphere who haven't been banned from the site yet will be forced to ask themselves whether the website and its owner have simply switched teams and joined the Dark Side.

I fully support that the Church gains more or less monopoly on religion in Europe (government policies, school curriculum etc at least) in addition to granting the Church several concessions which have been taken from them the last decades.The truth is, it was not Breivik's religion that caused him to murder 77 people last week; it was leftist politicians who convinced him that those who dissent from liberal orthodoxy will always be marginalized, stigmatized, ridiculed and slandered. He gave up on working through the political process, believing that process to be too compromised to ever be effective in reversing the damage caused by Marxism, multiculturalism and massive Islamic immigration. He wrote:
As for the Church and science, it is essential that science takes an undisputed precedence over biblical teachings. Europe has always been the cradle of science and it must always continue to be that way.
Regarding my personal relationship with God, I guess I’m not an excessively religious man. I am first and foremost a man of logic. However, I am a supporter of a monocultural Christian Europe.
An increasing number of Europeans are opening their eyes to the reality that the democratical struggle through dialogue has been lost. The cultural Marxists have institutionalised multiculturalism and have no intention of ever allowing us to exercise any political influence of significance. In theory we, the cultural conservatives of Europe, have become slaves under an oppressive, tyrannical, extreme left-wing system with absolutely no hope of reversing the damage they have caused. At least not democratically..So what did the liberals do after Breivik's shooting spree? They proved him right in his conclusions stated above. They began an extensive campaign to blame Breivik's anger on conservatives -- anger that the left itself caused. In so doing, they did what Breivik claimed: they slandered us in an attempt to stigmatize, ridicule, and ultimately, silence us.
It is meaningless to participate in the democratical process when you are not allowed to raise important issues without being subjected to political and social persecution through stigmatisation and ridicule. It is time to acknowledge that we, the cultural conservatives of Western Europe, are deceiving ourselves to believe that it is remotely possible to change the system democratically....We have never and will never be allowed to ever exercise any influence. The cultural Marxist/multiculturalist elites nationally and in Brussels have for the last five decades created a resilient system whose objective is to ridicule, persecute, harass and silence us. They will continue to systematically marginalise us until the day when we are no longer a threat to them.
|A Public Service Announcement|
From the State of Tennessee
The specific law outlaws posting a photo online that causes "emotional distress" to someone and has no "legitimate purpose." While the law does state that there needs to be "malicious intent," it also includes a massive loophole, in that it says that you can still be liable if the person "reasonably should know" that the actions would "frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress."Clearly, this law is an abject violation of the First Amendment for free speech, and cannot stand. It would allow anyone to shut down another's free speech based on an individual's subjective tastes and biases.
Historically, the growth of government statism has been irremediable. For every “100 yards” that they have advanced, our most successful counteroffensive has only slowed their rate of advance by a few yards. Now, after 80 years of soft-socialism, and 2 1/2 years of hard-Marxism, if nothing drastic is done, the government will control our healthcare sector, financial sector, and many other large components of our once proud free market. In other words, we are down big in the Super Bowl of socialism.Horowitz doesn't just preach doom and gloom, but sees Obama's coming electoral defeat to be a major opportunity to fulfill some of Ronald Reagan's dreams, e.g. a balanced budget amendment, a 2/3 vote requirement for raising taxes, and a constitutional ban on price and wage controls.
Does this mean that Abraham Lincoln was wrong to force the Southern states to stay in the Union? Yes, absolutely. No one has the legal authority to force a group of people whose ancestors helped form an organization to remain in that organization. Forced membership is not freedom; it’s slavery.
Speaking of slavery, we all agree that American slavery was morally wrong in every respect, but slavery was not the issue with Abraham Lincoln. He repeatedly made it clear that he would be willing to continue to allow slavery if that’s what it took to keep the Union together. The Civil War was not about slavery; it was about revenues that would be lost to the federal government if the Southern states were allowed to secede.
