I have been a Washington Redskins fan for more years than I care to remember although I thank God every day that I still have the mental capacity to do so. Therefore, one might say that I’m biased and that I can’t speak objectively on this topic – NOT TRUE. These heavy handed and so-called politically correct attempts to get the ‘Skins to change their team name have nothing to do with football, but rather they are an example of an out of control government once again putting its boot on the throats of We the People. And like the obstinate and spoiled child that it is, the more it gets away with, the more it attempts. And the more it attempts, the more it gets away with – ADB
RedState.com: The Washington Redskins have had their trademark yanked by the US Patent and Trademark Office because white liberals who feel guilty about their privilege were offended.
That is the actual fact. Most American Indians . . . errrr . . . Native Americans could care less. In fact, on Indian Reservations around the country there are kids’ sports teams called the Redskins.
The logo itself had the collaboration of Indians at its conception.
What is really going on here is that a bunch of overeducated white guys who cry during Love Actually feel they have too much privilege and are thus guilty. So they have gone out and found things to be offended about on behalf of others less privileged than themselves. Continue reading at redstate.com.
“If you could make it out to Christopher Stevens? I think you know him.”
In yet another one of his ambush videos, guerilla conservative Jason Mattera attended one of Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices book signings and served up some cringe-inducing “social justice” on the former Secretary of State.
Mattera politely approached the entourage surrounded Clinton and asked her to sign a copy of his book. Upon asking whom she should sign it to, Mattera casually replied, “If you could make it out to Christopher Stevens? I think you know him,” referring to the former U.S Ambassador killed at the Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Continue reading at: truthrevolt.com.
In February, Democratic strategist Pat Caddell and Democratic pollster Doug Shoen spoke with Fox News’ Harris Faulkner Here are some excerpts from the video:
Doug Shoen: “…and indeed in the Republican party, I’m of the opinion that the establishment Republicans are fighting harder against the Tea Party than they are against the Democrats… It’s because this is about intramural politics and self-interest, not the interest of the American people.
Pat Caddell: “Let me add to what Doug said at this point: This is about preserving privileges and arrangements that benefit these people over the country. And I’d say… it is worse than seedy. It is worse than corrupt. It is the issue that no one is allowed to speak up and the American people in the polls know it. This is a corrupt political system that doesn’t function, and as Michael Dukakis once said: It rots from the head down.”

VIRGINIA, June 11, 2014- It’s been 24 hours since the polls closed in Virginia, and the political establishment was rocked in what is being called the most earth-shattering defeat in decades.
National Tea Party groups have been fast to speak out and congratulate Brat on defeating Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the GOP’s second most powerful Republican. As is often the case, when a big win is scored, those with large megaphones are always ready to speak up.
“Congratulations to Dave Brat on his huge upset. The statement from the grassroots could not be any clearer. It doesn’t matter what office you hold or how powerful you are. If you lose touch with activists on the ground, then your seat is in danger,” wrote Freedom Works’ Matthew Kibbe. “The grassroots are taking their seat back at the table and returning accountability to Washington. Votes on Capitol Hill will be heard back in the district,” he added. “We are proud to stand with Dave Brat in his election and look forward to working with him to reform Washington, D.C.” Continue reading at: benswann.com.

Fox New Hannity 6/10/2014: Dave Brat on what his shocking win means for the GOP.
(NYTimes) WASHINGTON — In one of the most stunning primary election upsets in congressional history, the House majority leader, Eric Cantor, was soundly defeated on Tuesday by a Tea Party-backed economics professor who had hammered him for being insufficiently conservative. (Post continued below video)
The result delivered a major jolt to the Republican Party — Mr. Cantor had widely been considered the top candidate to succeed Speaker John A. Boehner — and it has the potential to change both the debate in Washington on immigration and, possibly, the midterm elections.
With just over $200,000, David Brat, a professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va., toppled Mr. Cantor, repeatedly criticizing him for being soft on immigration and contending that he supported what critics call amnesty for immigrants in the country illegally. Mr. Brat will face Jack Trammell, a Democrat who is also a professor at Randolph-Macon, this fall in the heavily Republican district. Read more at: YouHotNews.

A spokeswoman for the State Department referred to the Taliban operatives released from Guantanamo Bay as part of the deal to retrieve Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl as “gentlemen.” In a Monday afternoon appearance with Andrew Mitchell on MSNBC, Marie Harf, the deputy spokesperson at State and an alumna of the Obama campaign, argued with Mitchell over the question of whether or not Congress should have ben notified about the exchange before it occured.
Noah Rothman at Hot Air documents the conversation, and near the end of the interview, Harf defends the deal against questions about whether or not the Taliban operatives could return to Afghanistan.
“Under this administration, we’ve put in very stringent processes to determine that we can sufficiently mitigate the risk that the terrorists, the possibility that these gentlemen will go back to the battlefield,” Harf says.

On this week’s Justice with Judge Jeanine on Fox News Channel, host Jeanine Pirro called for president Obama’s impeachment triggered by his recent release of five terrorists from Gitmo in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Here is a portion of her opening statement (post continues below video:
However, Breitbart senior editor-at-large Ben Shapiro says that impeachment isn’t the answer: prosecution is.

It is truly a fool’s errand for any decent person of conscience governed by honesty to engage in debate with the likes of these people. Never has that folly been more acute than in the aftermath of the President’s release of the five Kingpins of Terror.
To engage them is like walking onto a battlefield of steel and lead in nothing but sandals and a sackcloth, unarmed. No matter how honorable your motive or how right your cause, you will be slaughtered with impunity.
Your morals will be ridiculed. Your belief in a code of decency will be used to ensnare you. Your truth-bearing tongue will be ripped from your throat and fed to your children.
You may be marked as God’s child, but that will do you no good here today. You will be killed on this battlefield of these people’s choosing and at their vile hands.
So it is today for Americans who have never before felt a pang of disloyalty toward their country or the soldiers who fight for their freedom. For them, patriotism is both a cheap thrill at a ballgame and a profound comfort and compass during the blurred horror of wartime.
What diabolical scheme might these shape-shifters devise to turn American patriotism against itself? What deceits might they deploy to scramble proud Americans into panting disarray, jabbering senselessly in countless different languages?
Quite simple, it turns out. Continue reading at breitbart.com.
The beginning of the end of World War II
On June 6, 1944, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which, “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foot-hold in Continental Europe. The cost in lives on D-Day was high. More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded, but their sacrifice allowed more than 100,000 Soldiers to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, to defeat Adolph Hitler’s crack troops. http://www.army.mil/d-day/index.html
