FDA Bans French Cheese

Then they came for the Roquefort

The FDA is coming after your French cheese

Is there anything the government doesn’t ruin? I had the pleasure of living in France for some time. While there, I gained an appreciation for their amazing array of cheeses.

How does the ALS Association spend its millions?

Trust not too much to appearances. -Virgil As the nation sweated out summer 2014, scores of people took to the supposedly charitable act of dumping ice water on their heads to raise awareness about ALS, a neuro-degenerative disease.

State Dept to ISIS recruits: This is your life, this is your life on ISIS

Posted by  ▪  September 8, 2014

Hopefully will work better than commercials for the war on drugs.

Caught on video: Another black-on-white racially motivated gang attack

Posted by  ▪  September 8, 2014

If victims shot in self-defense, would media and politicians portray the victims as criminals as in Zimmerman case?

Fast on the heels of the gang attack upon the white couple described in yesterday’s post, “Caught on Video: Vicious Group Attack by Thugs on Young Couple,” comes another video capture of a gang of black teenagers beating unconscious what appears to be a randomly selected white man intent on nothing…

Posted by  ▪  September 8, 2014

Can Ted Cruz accomplish his mission?

Now that Ted Cruz has proposed that Americans who fight with ISIS be stripped of citizenship, there’s been a rash of articles questioning whether this would be legal, such as this one at Hot Air.

Crossing Canadian border dressed as ISIS terrorist is easy

Posted by  ▪  September 8, 2014

James O’Keefe’s latest.

In his last video, James O’Keefe crossed the Rio Grande dressed as Osama bin Laden. Now he’s crossing the Canadian border by boat with someone dressed as an ISIS terrorist. It’s easy. Our lake border security amounts to nothing more than an honor system. More at the Project Veritas website.

Police use Facebook “John Shaming” to Fight Prostitution

Posted by  ▪  September 8, 2014

Taking an idea from the “Dog Shaming” website.

The police of the California city of Richmond are waging a social media war against prostitution…one that fans of “pet shaming” pictures on Facebook will recognize.

Thought Experiment: California without Jerry Brown as Governor

Posted by  ▪  September 7, 2014

Neel Kashkari took it to Brown in the one and only debate, but that likely will not change the outcome.

As I noted in my June election report, Governor Jerry Brown will be facing Republican challenger Neel Kashkari in California’s gubernatorial race. There one and only debate between them was held Thursday. Prior to the event, conservatives in California were wondering if, given the fact Brown holds a tremendous lead…

Posted by  ▪  September 7, 2014

“There can be no clearer renunciation of their citizenship in the United States.”

When you consider the disturbing number of Americans allegedly working with ISIS already, this sounds like a solid idea. Senator Cruz is going to introduce legislation next week.
