Case in point: her addressing of basic reality on the Martin-Zimmerman case, and exactly why the ACLU was smart to reverse course and get out of any further race-baiting in the form of trying for | Read More »
The Zimmerman Trial Was Always About Stand Your Ground
The Obama administration’s mission (from day one) was to use Trayvon Martin’s death the way they tried to use Fast and Furious. To advance their anti-gun agenda.

Our schools don’t teach History
Our schools are no longer teaching US History. It is a pale imitation of US history at best. Ask a college student about the French & Indian War. They do not know about it. They are ignorant as to how this war inevitably led the Colonists to the Revolution. They want to teach us that the Native American was the equal of his European counterpart. | Read More »
