Tomorrow is NOT a day for politics, for campaigning, for bloviating rhetoric…it is a day for remembering and honoring those we’ve lost in times of war, whose memories we will always hold dear. Continue reading
When Cristie Landis got up one morning, she started to sign in to Facebook and got the “We’ve removed something you posted” complaint. After the admonishment to “review the Community Standards,” she learned that she was banned for three days because of her post. What horrific, offensive nastiness did she sear people’s sensitive minds with? Her veteran husband’s headstone.
It’s Memorial Day weekend
Cristie was viewing a picture of a soldier holding his infant daughter just before leaving on deployment. A person named Ian made a nasty comment totally out of the sentiments being expressed by others who viewed it. Cristie responded to him, and then left a photo of her husband’s headstone in the comment stream. Someone reported that photo as “offensive.”

In other words…a Soldier, Sailor, Marine or Airman.

They did the unthinkable, and publicly posted a message not approved by what many are now calling the “Gaystapo.” That message was in the form of a sign that read: “The sanctity of marriage is under attack. Let’s keep marriage between a man and a woman.” For this, the business owners were targeted with threats and ultimately gave the couple their money back.
Saturday, May 23rd, on RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS on CPR Worldwide Media from 11am to 1pm EST, Craig and Diane will discuss the Iranian nuclear deal and its oh-so sneaky ties to North Korea, a special salute in honor of Memorial Day, and drumroll please…MOOOOchelle drops a Cow Pie with graduation speech.
NOT a good week folks NOT good at all. Besides U.S. military equipment falling into ISIS’ hands following the Iraqi army’s withdrawal from Rumadi…actually yet another incident of the Iraqi’s high-tailing it and running…besides Iran reiterating once again that they will NEVER give international inspectors access to its military facilities NO matter what nuclear deal is reached…besides Trey Gowdy’s House Select Committee investigating the Benghazi attack issuing a subpoena to former Clinton White House aide Sidney Blumenthal…and besides yet another ‘secret’ private email server being discovered in the possession of Hillary ‘What Difference Does It Make’ Clinton…now comes word that North Korea is claiming to be able to make nuclear warheads small enough to fit onto a missile.

A funny thing happened Wednesday morning as I sat down to write my morning article. Upon going to Facebook, I was presented with a logon dialog indicating that something was flagged by their moderators the night before.
Sure enough, Facebook said that two posts I allegedly made violated their terms of service. Here’s the first:
As the Obama administration continues to state that the September 12, 2012 attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya was the result of an alleged insulting video, Judicial Watch (JW) announced on Monday that they have obtained documents proving that the Obama administration, the U.S. State Department, and the Department of Defense had advanced notice of the impending attack.
JW, in the email release also uncovered that the Obama administration knew at least three months before the November 2012 presidential election that the radical terrorist organization, ISIS (ISIL) had plans to establish a caliphate in Iraq and knew that military weapons were being shipped from Benghazi to Syria.

Midland, Texas is in the heart of the Texas oil country. Founded in 1881 as the halfway point on the railroad between Fort Worth and El Paso, Midland was originally a cattle town. In 1923, oil was discovered there and the town boomed. Many of the downtown buildings still reflect the art deco construction of the 1920s and 1930s. The city gained fame in the early 2000s as the hometown of President George W. Bush. Today, Midland is feeling the effects of the most recent oil bust, but is even more famous for something else: a closed Walmart.
Until recently Midland was a two Walmart town. One store was located on the north side of town and another the south. That changed in April when the retailer suddenly closed the north side store along with other stores in Livingston, Texas, Pico Rivera, Calif., Tulsa, Okla., and Brandon, Fla. The Midland store closing included layoffs for most of the 456 employees according to the Dallas Morning News. The Midland Reporter-Telegram notes that the store will be closed for approximately six months. Other area businesses are concerned because they benefit from the customers that Walmart draws to the area.
Let’s start with the bottom line…the ‘social issues’ belong to the states…period. And anyone who says otherwise does NOT know the Constitution…you know…that pesky little document Obama so loves to trample on.
The Constitution…the very document that defines our freedom and protects us from a tyrannical government (that is until Obama came along)…clearly and unequivocally states which powers will be delegated by law to each branch of government. And while amendments to the Constitution have been added that deal with specific ‘human rights’ (rights believed to belong equally to every person) those amendments still rightfully place limits on government powers in regards to those rights. And the ubber-religious far right, and even some centrist conservatives, do not understand that when ‘social issues’ cross the line into political fodder they themselves become what’s legally referred to as ‘constitutionally improper.’ And neither the federal government nor Obama himself…even when yielding his trusty pen and his phone… can legally choose which Constitutionally given ‘human rights’ to focus on…to fixate on…over the others. But the delegation of the so-called ‘social issues’ still must adhere with the Constitution not with Obama or with the socially conscious and many times judgmental ubber-religious far right.
