Details: NFC-PAC’s inaugural event is an evening with one of the most popular commentators on American politics, Ann Coulter.
Buy tickets here. Yeah, they aren’t cheap, but we’ll manage on peanut butter and ramen (not at the same time) for a while, I guess. Since all the money will be donated to CONSERVATIVE candidates, mostly in Tennessee, but some in very important races in other states, who could possibly miss the chance to hear Ms Coulter speak, and help out the conservative cause in at the same time?
Time is getting short! Please join us this coming Saturday!
Modern Civil Rights: Cockfighting & Same-Sex Proms
by Ann Coulter
Watching TV this week, at first I thought Republican Senate nominee Rand Paul had flown a commercial jet into the World Trade Center. But then it turned out that he had only said there ought to be discussion about whether federal civil rights laws should be applied to private businesses.
This allowed the mainstream media to accuse Paul of being a racist. Twisting a conservative’s words in order to accuse him of racism was evidently more urgent news than the fact that the attorney general of the United States admitted last week — under oath in a congressional hearing — that he had not read the 10-page Arizona law on illegal immigration, the very law he was noisily threatening to overturn.
And really, how could the U.S. attorney general have time to read a 10-page law when he’s busy doing all the Sunday morning TV shows condemning it?
The Department of Homeland Security is alerting Texas authorities to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the Somalia-based Al Shabaab terrorist group who might be attempting to travel to the U.S. through Mexico, a security expert who has seen the memo tells FOXNews.com.
The warning follows an indictment unsealed this month in Texas federal court that accuses a Somali man in Texas of running a “large-scale smuggling enterprise” responsible for bringing hundreds of Somalis from Brazil through South America and eventually across the Mexican border. Many of the illegal immigrants, who court records say were given fake IDs, are alleged to have ties to other now-defunct Somalian terror organizations that have merged with active organizations like Al Shabaab, al-Barakat and Al-Ittihad Al-Islami.
Well, way to go feds! Since y’all haven’t been bothered to enforce your own laws, you’ve left the borders wide open for YEARS! You might as well have invited every criminal, terrorist and low life scum sucker (but I repeat myself) right on in. And now, you’ve decided to issue a warning? How nice of you.
Hey…..we’ve been trying to tell you for a long time….CLOSE THE FREAKIN’ BORDER! But have you listened? Of course not! We’re just all racists, right? Psst! It’s your JOB to protect the CITIZENS of these United States. About y’all start doing it, eh? And stop being such a bunch of dicks!
Art Linkletter, who hosted the popular TV shows “People Are Funny” and “House Party” in the 1950s and 1960s, has died. He was 97.
Yes, I do feel rather aged today.
Franklin, the UFC fighter, says he doesn’t know if God cared if he knocked out Travis “The Serial Killer” Lutter in Montreal, Canada. But “it doesn’t hurt to ask.”
“Win or lose, I always thank God for what he’s given me,” says Franklin, an evangelical Christian.
Franklin says he thanks God after victories because he has felt God’s presence in the midst of mixed martial arts battle.
Athletes who publicly thank God for victory are often calling more attention to themselves than their faith, says William J. Baker, author of “Playing with God.”
They are selling their goodness, and their brand of faith, to a captive audience, says Baker, who describes himself as a Christian.
“I don’t think it’s the right place and it’s not the right gesture,” says Baker, a former high school quarterback. “It’s an athlete using a moment to sell a product, like soap.”
When did the media become so ignorant? Any place, and EVERY place, is the RIGHT place to thank God, and sing his praises!
2 Samuel 22:50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name.
Psalm 50:14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
Psalm 69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
2 Timothy 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
Galatians 6:6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Romans 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
And that’s just a few examples. We are instructed, by God, to share the Word, to praise him, to proclaim before all, and these people are questioning what players do on the field? Well, I guess it just proves that some folks haven’t bothered to read the Book. Kind of like they pass judgments on bills they haven’t read.
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
A Crisis of Competence in the Gulf
“Let’s be clear: Every day that this oil sits is one more day that more of our marsh dies,” Gov. Bobby Jindal (LA) said Monday. “We’ve been frustrated with the disjointed effort to date that has too often meant too little, too late for the oil hitting our coast,” he continued. Specifically, Jindal is frustrated by the failure of the federal government to produce the 8 million feet of oil-blocking booms it asked for back on May 2nd and 3rd. So far Louisiana has only received 815,000 feet of boom, and even then the federal government has failed to place it in the correct locations.
Worse, Obama administration regulators continue to deny Louisiana officials permission to build up barrier islands between the coast’s marshes and the gulf. Federal regulators have so far refused to permit the state to act, fearing the unintended long-term damage to local wildlife. So instead of action, the oil continues to float on shore threatening the livelihoods of millions of Louisianans.
