You might remember NBC commentator Bob Costas’ recent self-serving and politically correct halftime rant when he came down on the Washington Redskins saying that their name was “an insult, a slur.” Well the fan holding the sign in the photo below during Sunday’s Redskins/Giants game certainly expresses his displeasure with Costas – and very succinctly I might add. (Post continues below photo).

One of the most surreal factors in the Democrat talking point of “War on Women” is their reflexive support for abortion in all of its cruel and inhumane permutations.
Earlier in the year a ditzy Texas state senator became a national cause celebre (see Abortion Rights Under Fire: Why Wendy Davis’ Filibuster Matters) when she undertook a filibuster of a Texas bill that, in reaction to the Kermit Gosnell case (see Tom Ridge: Unindicted Co-conspirator) made abortion practitioners at least pretend to be a part of the medical profession. The bill ultimately passed in a special session and was immediately appealed on two grounds by Planned Parenthood.
They objected on two basic grounds: that the requirement that the abortionist have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles and that the abortionist must be qualified in the field of obstetrics and gynecology, and that any use of the abortion pill be done according the protocol approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

I’m Hanging Up The White Coat Because Of Obamacare To Pursue My Doctorate In Economics And Head To Wall Street/ Continue My Work In Politics
“Mr. President, I’m Leaving The Medical Field”: Hanging Up The White Coat: A Letter To President Obama
The White House

I was born at Centennial Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. My mother would later take a job delivering babies in that same operating room only a couple years later. My parents got a divorce when I was young. There were many times during the summer when she would be forced to take my sister and me to work with her. I vividly remember the child version of myself walking the halls of the same floor I was born on in fascination as the years passed. The anesthesiologists used to bring us candy and watch movies with us. When the holidays came, a nurse by the name of Patty Vaughn (we called her Granny), would have bags of presents for my sister and me. Donna Smith, a surgical first assistant who came to America from Canada to work in a free-market healthcare system, use to babysit us.
Donna’s two-story town-home became a 3rd home (2nd was the hospital). We spent countless nights at her house.
Patty passed away when I was ten. I still remember the last box of moon pies she gave me for Halloween that year. To this day every time I see a moon pie I think of her. Donna helped me through my undergrad at Belmont University. With tuition at $30k/year money was tight. Donna never let me go without a meal. Continue reading at: benswann.com.
The Regime’s Efforts To Silence Whistleblowers And Intimidate Reporters Have Been Historic
In response to Snitches get stitches: journalist raided, notes and whistleblower names seized:
When Obama was elected in 2008, his ascension to the White House was deemed “historic” because he was our first black president, and Americans were rightly proud of that. Unfortunately, Obama has been a “historic” president in other ways, too – ways that should horrify and alarm Americans. His administration’s brazen efforts to silence whistleblowers, intimidate reporters and businesses that don’t play ball with him have been unprecedented. We are living through highly troubling times.

It was great reconnecting with Michelle Malkin at this year’s RightOnline in Orlando.
“RightOnline, a project of Americans for Prosperity Foundation, is dedicated to advancing liberty and prosperity for all Americans through greater citizen participation online.
“The RightOnline Conference brings top new media, technology, and messaging experts together with hundreds of committed citizen activists to provide important leadership and grassroots training, offering tools and inspiration to more effectively impact public policy in favor of limited government and free enterprise. The agenda provides a solid program of workshops and training seminars on new media strategies and tools that can be used to mobilize and advance free market policies.”
Michelle Malkin was the keynote speaker on Friday night and she was on the panel in one of the small training sessions on Saturday morning entitled Clicktivism: Fighting the Battle Online. The small group format allowed for quite a bit of individual participation. Michelle is always fired up and passionate on the issues, but she is warm and personable at the same time. I got a lot out of the “class” and I really appreciated the time she spent with me afterwards. Watch for more posts on RightOnline over the next few days.

On the 4th of July, David Heimbold, Saint Augustine Tea Party Media Chairman, while celebrating our nation’s 237th birthday, walked on Federal property carrying a flag dating back to the Revolutionary War period. In 1776, Betsy Ross had not yet been commissioned to produce the American Flag that came to be known as the Betsy Ross flag. In addition, Heimbold carried the sign pictured above which states, “Tea Party Lives on 4 U!”
For this grievous act of violating national security, Park Ranger Jill Jaworski, pictured left, cited Mr. Heimbold with a violation which, if convicted, would leave him with a criminal record. The violation is for failure to obtain a ‘special use permit’. According to the Park Rangers, Free Speech and the Right of Assembly requires a permit and/or regulation and control. It should be noted that the Castillo de San Marco grounds were covered with people who brought all kinds of paraphernalia, signs and flags to celebrate the Fourth. They were not required to have a permit. Only the Tea Party was singled out for not having a ‘permit’. This discrimination is clearly a violation of Civil Rights. Continue reading at: examiner.com.

Thousands of patriots traveled from up and down the coast and even the Midwest – on short notice and in the middle of the work week – to come to the nation’s Capitol to attend a pair of tea-party rallies and make their voices heard.
They also came to hear a roster of conservative politicians and well-known figures including Glenn Beck, Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Rand Paul, R-Ky., as well as Reps. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, Steve King, R-Iowa, Dave Camp, R-Mich., Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Mike Kelly, R-Pa., and Matt Salmon, R-Ariz.
Two topics dominated the day: investigating the IRS and stopping amnesty. But there was one theme: Take back America.
The rally that began at 9 a.m. on the lawn in back of the Capitol was organized by King and billed as a “press conference” on amnesty. Continue reading at wnd.com.
Yesterday’s Audit the IRS Rally at the Capitol was organized by Tea Party Patriots. There were many great speakers including Conservative lawmakers, personalities and members of Conservative groups who were targeted by the IRS for the major sin of applying for tax exempt status.
Also speaking were two legal immigrants, Arkady Faktotovich (Katy, TX Tea Party Patriots) who immigrated from the former Soviet Union, and Hans Marsden (Central KY Tea Party) who came here from England. Both of these fine men and their families immigrated to the United States many years ago because of the freedoms both personal and economic that were here in the USA. Both Arkady and Hans spoke of the loss of freedoms that are taking place right now, and about how fearful they are.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. pledged Thursday to take concrete steps to address concerns that the Justice Department has overreached in its leak investigations and said officials would seek procedural and possibly legislative changes to protect journalists’ First Amendment rights. Holder’s commitment came at a private meeting with news executives after criticism that the Justice Department had infringed on the news media in several high-profile leak investigations. Participants said he told them officials would revise guidelines for issuing subpoenas to obtain reporters’ phone records. The 90-minute meeting was attended by a small group of journalists after several news organizations objected to the Justice Department’s insistence that it be held off the record. The participants, however, reached an agreement with the Justice Department under which they could describe what occurred during the meeting in general terms…
Eric Holder pledged to take “concrete steps” to address the actions of Eric Holder — up to and (possibly) including backing legislative action that would curtail Eric Holder’s ability to abuse Eric Holder’s power. What a guy. Direct quotes would be priceless here, but those weren’t allowed, of course. Instead, the DOJ very magnanimously permitted reporters to offer “general” accounts of what was discussed.
