Surely they could buy their votes cheaper than that!

Eighteen months after its launch, Al Jazeera America (AJA) is still losing gobs of money, and according to numbers provided by the New York Post, spending $73,519 per viewer. Since its August 2013 debut, AJA has spent a whopping $2 billion and brought in only around $15 million in advertising revenue. The result is an average of only 27,000 total viewers. According to my admittedly shaky math, that’s $73,519 per viewer. Read more: at breitbart.com.
Many people may be confused about how to tell a “legitimate” protestor from a trouble maker or even a terrorist. This handy guide to free speech for Progressives should help! For example, the Gyrocopter pilot who violated numerous laws and endangered lives - NOT A TERRORIST! The million tea party “people” who marched on Congress under a permit in a lawfully organized demonstration – Terrorist! Here’s how to tell. The Gyrocopter pilot worked for the post office, so is a government worker – NOT a terrorists! The tea party people want Congress to read bills before they pass them – Terrorists! The gyrocopter pilot wanted to STOP companies from spending money on political campaigns – Folk Hero! the Tea party “protestors” want government to cut spending – TERRORISTs! See how it works?

Megyn Kelly shared new information tonight about a series of terrifying raids which were reportedly a form of political retribution against supporters of Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI).
She explained that a few of the people who were raided came forward and spoke to the National Review about what they experienced.
Kelly reported that Cindy Archer had a raid conducted on her home when she was sound asleep one night.
Archer claims that more than a dozen police officers were yelling and pounding on her door.
She said that police would not tell her why they were there as they ransacked her home, Kelly reported.
Police officers reportedly seized Archer’s computers and phones and told her that she couldn’t tell anyone what happened.
Eric O’Keefe, a member of the Wisconsin Club for Growth, told Kelly tonight that people were “targeted based on a theory which is completely unsupportable under Wisconsin law.”
He explained that they were attacked because “the left was tired of losing election after election after election.”

Jeb Bush Pushes Republicans to Cave to Obama Executive Amnesty, Approve Loretta Lynch. Why waste your time and energy, Jeb, McConnell will cave on his own anyway.
What a week! First the Senate caves and approves the infamous Doc-Fix. Great, they won’t have to worry about the SGR every two years. But some little known provisions in the bill actually gut Medicare over time, and will effectively turn Medicare into Obamacare. I don’t know why these provisions are so “little known.” I actually read the bill and found out what was in it. Next, the Senate caved on the Iran deal treaty and gave Obama the power to do what he damn pleases. Now good ol’ Jeb does this:
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has joined Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid in calling for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to abandon his pre-election promise to fight President Obama’s executive amnesty by holding a vote to confirm U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch as Attorney General.
“I think that presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said in New Hampshire at an event with about 95 voters and “a horde of media,” according to Time Magazine’s Zeke Miller.
“The longer it takes to confirm her, the longer Eric Holder stays as Attorney General,” Bush said, echoing a talking point that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has used to justify his planned vote for Lynch–even though a vote for her is a vote for Obama’s executive amnesty. Read more at breitbart.com.

DIVORCE AGREEMENT – WRITTEN BY YOUNG COLLEGE STUDENT
First published May 28th, 2012 – 30 star rating. The person that wrote this is a college student. Perhaps there is hope for us after all.
Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950’s for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.
Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.
Here is a model separation agreement:
–Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
–We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
–You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.–Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.
–We’ll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.
–We’ll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.
–You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.
–We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks.
–We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood
–You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
–You can have the peaceniks and Occupiers. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.
–We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values.
–You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
–We’ll keep the SUV’s, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.
–You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.
–We’ll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.
–We’ll keep “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “The National Anthem.”
–I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute “Imagine”, “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”, “Kum Ba Ya” or “We Are the World”.
–We’ll practice trickle down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.
–Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our flag.

We Will Not Be Silenced
Conservative New Zealand author and friend of the Tea Party, Trevor Loudon, explains why he spends so much time in the United States speaking to groups about the dangers of the Progressive Left and how they are destroying our country. Although this video was shot while Mr. Loudon was speaking just weeks before the 2012 election, it is even more relevant today as we are gearing up for the 2016 election cycle. Many including Trevor have said that 2016 is our last chance to save our Republic.
Mark Levin chats with Sean Hannity about the timidity of the establishment Republican Party and their refusal to stand against the Democrats. Levin adds that the only true conservative presidents in the last 100 years were Calvin Coolidge and Ronald Reagan and that the other Republican “leaders” have merely built on top of what the Left has created. He then went on to talk about the establishment’s love for Common Core and open borders. Leven went on to say that “…We need principled Conservatives and that people under 50 in this country have never had an opportunity to actually vote for a Conservative president…” And that he thinks “…it’s up to us and millions of others in our generation to give them the opportunity. And that’s exciting and invigorating to support somebody not because you want to stop the democrats, but because you really believe in what they are saying…” He then went on to say “…that a Conservative candidate will in fact reignite the excitement of the Reagan Democrats and others.”
They went on to talk about how both the left and right have attacked Conservatives at every turn. Levin talked about the Bush operatives, both Jeb and George, and the Karl Rove operatives using super PACS to trash the new Conservatives who are trying to break through. He said that “…We Conservatives, we Constitutionalists, will never have an opportunity to beat the Democrats unless we bust through, muscle through the Republican Establishment that despises us. People need to remember, particularly young people out there: They tried to stop Reagan; the Bush family tried to stop Reagan; the Republican Establishment tried to stop Reagan. There would have been no Reagan had they succeeded. And we talk about the next Reagan. Look, it doesn’t matter if we have the next Reagan, we need the next fresh faced Conservative, who will connect with the American people, but we’re not going to have that chance as long as we keep getting these long in the tooth, dug in Republicans, these corporatists who are perfectly happy with big government as long as they’re running it.”
In the final portion of the segment Levin and Hannity discussed President Obama’s mishandling of the negotiations with Iran and how he is succeeding in taking this country down. Levin said that it is up to “…People like us, and the Republican Party and Conservatives to try and stop him and then when he’s out of office to try and rebuild what’s left of our Republic.”
Mark Levin is a Constitutional scholar, a former official in the Reagan Justice Department and a radio talk show host.

When President Obama announced on March 31 that he intends to ensure that the U.S. will slash its “greenhouse gas emissions” 26% below 2005 emissions levels by 2025 in order to keep pledges made to fulfill the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, he failed to mention that such levels would be comparable to what they were in our Civil War era, 150 years ago.
He also failed to mention that the U.S. has made no such pledges as regards the 1992 “Kyoto Treaty” which was resoundingly rejected by the U.S. Senate when then Vice President Al Gore brought it back from the U.N. conference.
There is no need, globally or nationally, to reduce such emissions. It would be a crime against humanity, especially for the millions that would be denied electrical power or would see its cost rise exponentially. “The President has no credible evidence to back up his claims,” said H. Sterling Burnett, a Research Fellow with the free market think tank, The Heartland Institute. “Obama’s climate actions are likely to cause far more harm to people, especially the poor, than any purported threats from global warming.” Read more at canadafreepres.com.
Joseph Scaffido, Assistant Dean at Cornell University, is captured on hidden camera advising a Project Veritas investigative journalist on how to start and fund a pro-ISIS club on campus, how to obtain funding to send care packages to ISIS and Hamas, and astonishingly, how to bring a member of ISIS to Cornell to run a “training camp.”

This compilation of Jen Psaki’s remarks to AP Warrior Matt Lee is only fitting as the State Department’s Stonewaller-in-Chief transitions to her new position at the White House. This woman has had more dodges than Pichard Petty.

For the last several days, the entire Western media has run with a false story: the story that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he no longer would, under any circumstances, endorse the possibility of a Palestinian state.
Ha’aretz, a left-wing Israeli newspaper opposing Netanyahu, reported Netanyahu’s supposed comment with this headline: “Netanyahu: If I’m Elected, There Will Be No Palestinian State.” The rest of the media quickly followed. Days later, when Netanyahu said that he had never disavowed his prior support for the possibility of a Palestinian state – support he expressed in a speech at Bar Ilan University in 2009 – the media accused Netanyahu of flip-flopping.
There is only one problem: Netanyahu never said that a Palestinian state was out of the question.
The interview in which Netanyahu expressed the much-misinterpreted remark took place with the conservative Israeli publication NRG. It also took place in Hebrew, a language virtually none of the members of the Western press read or speak; most simply took the Ha’aretz report and ran with it. Netanyahu was asked directly about whether his Bar-Ilan speech was “irrelevant.” Here is what Netanyahu actually said:
NETANYAHU: I think anyone who is going to build a Palestinian state today will be freeing up space to give an attack area to radical Islam against Israel. This is the reality created here in recent years. Anyone who ignores this sticks his head in the sand. The left does this, burying its head in the sand again and again. We are realistic and understand…
NRG: If you are elected head of state, no Palestinian state will come to fruition?
NRG: Construction in Jerusalem and the West Bank will renew?
NETANYAHU: We are continuing all the time, but that’s not a question about additional building. There is a real threat that the government of the left will join the international community and do their bidding….
Netanyahu continued by arguing that the left would buy into the “international initiatives to return to the 1967 borders and divide Jerusalem.”
In other words, Netanyahu did not discount the possibility of a Palestinian state forever. He said that anyone who tries to build a Palestinian state “hayom” – “today” – would be giving territory to radical Islam. He even added that this was a reality created in recent years.

It doesn’t get any more transparent than this!
WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject requests for records to that office.
The White House said the cleanup of FOIA regulations is consistent with court rulings that hold that the office is not subject to the transparency law. The office handles, among other things, White House record-keeping duties like the archiving of e-mails.
But the timing of the move raised eyebrows among transparency advocates, coming on National Freedom of Information Day and during a national debate over the preservation of Obama administration records. It’s also Sunshine Week, an effort by news organizations and watchdog groups to highlight issues of government transparency.
“The irony of this being Sunshine Week is not lost on me,” said Anne Weismann of the liberal Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW.
“It is completely out of step with the president’s supposed commitment to transparency,” she said. “That is a critical office, especially if you want to know, for example, how the White House is dealing with e-mail.” [bold type: Mine]
