If it came down to Trump vs. Clinton, who would blacks vote for?

on September 10, 2015, 8:13 AM / in National News, Opinion

By Deneen Borelli To hear the liberal punditry tell it, Donald Trump, in the unlikely event he cinched the Republican nomination for president, could never get elected because of the lousy turnout he would receive at the polls from minority voters.

Jail Time for Christians: No Longer a Hypothesis

on September 9, 2015, 5:12 PM / in Opinion

So this is how the game is played. Leftist operatives in the courts (supreme and state) create unconstitutional laws to further their anti-God agenda. Then, Leftists say those who disobey their lawless laws are not behaving like Christians and good Americans. Many on our side fall for it. The SCOTUS’ ruling on Obamacare and homosexual marriage means the Constitution will […]

by Tyler Durden  /  Zero Hedge Last month, we noted with some incredulity that Illinois is now paying lottery winners in IOUs. Long story short, the state’s inability to pass a budget means big winners will have to wait on their prize money, a ridiculous situation which prompted one Illinoisan to remind state officials that “if we owed the state […]
