It’s hard to pick out the single most offensive thing about an ad run by a Seattle restaurant on Easter Sunday to promote its so-called “Burger of the Gods.” Is it the speech bubble that has the Jesus saying, “When I get back, all I want is the burger of the gods”? Or is the fact that the Son of God is holding a lit blunt, which is presumably intended to answer the question “What would Jesus smoke?”
According to Seattle station KOMO, the explanation for the joint offered up John Schmidt, owner of Lunchbox Laboratory, is that Easter Sunday this year fell on April 20, or 4/20. In pop culture, “420” is a term for smoking marijuana. As for the burger Jesus is gazing at adoringly in the cartoonlike ad? Says Schmidt in the video report here:
This is not about Jesus; it’s about the burger of the gods. It’s an actual burger that we have.
“You stand on the brink of making a choice that will define your legacy on one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced — climate change…” - Former President Jimmy Carter
Well leave it to the second worst president in U.S. history to suck up to the worst president in U.S. history as last week Jimmy Carter, together with a group of nine Nobel Peace Laureates… including South Africa’s Desmond Tutu…sent a single letter through the Nobel Women’s Initiative to both Obama and John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry urging them to reject the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline… TransCanada’s long-delayed $5.5-billion project…on the grounds that it would add to climate change concerns and other environmental issues.
But the truth is that the pipeline would NOT negatively affect anything…for it would NOT contribute to greenhouse gasses nor would it contribute to global warning simply because there is NO such thing. (So-called global warming and global cooling are naturally occurring weather cycles that have occurred since the Earth began and will continue until the Earth is NO more.) Continue reading →
Fresh off a temporary loss at the Bundy ranch, a document from the Bureau of Land Management appears which appears to signal a whole new round of land grabs and changing designations of federal lands.
Once their plan is complete, Obama would be free to put the land to any use he wants. In many cases these public lands will become inaccessible to the public. The memo details ways they can take control of these lands without the approval of congress. Continue reading →
Ever since the House Oversight Committee began its investigation into the IRS, ranking member, Elijah Cummings has been trying to cut the investigation off at the pass. For the longest time we thought he was covering for Obama, but he wasn’t.
Cummings was covering for himself. It seems that he communicated with Lois Lerner and asked for information on True the Vote. He also sent 8 and 9 page missives directly to True the Vote, demanding they answer his questions. The problem is his “investigation” was illegal and now he is about to face the consequences, looking an ethics probe right in the eye. Continue reading →
The amount of power the Obama administration is claiming for itself knows no bounds. Unless we finally stand up and say enough, we are going to lose our country. Obama promised to fundamentally change America, and he is well on the way to doing just that.
Well, there is no fun but the government is certainly mental, surpassed only by the fools who voted for this loser for a second term. He has used executive orders to skirt the law, sent armed goons to a ranch in Nevada and his EPA has given a city with 10,000 Americans to the Indians. What the heck is happening to America? Continue reading →
“The truth will out.” Even a liberal rag like the New York Times will suffer a pang of conscience every now and then that forces them to publish the facts in place of left-leaning opinion, if only for a fleeting moment.
Here is a story that should be interesting to watch. It touches on so many hot button issues — from freedom of speech to racial insensitivity to the role of a teacher — that newspapers that have covered it can’t agree on a headline. The Associated Press titles their version of the story “Ohio teacher fired over comment on black president.” The Cincinnati Enquirer opts for “Fairfield teacher accused of racial slur loses job.”
Here are the broad outlines: Last December, a student in Gil Voigt’s freshman science class said he had aspirations to become president. According to the student, Voigt told him the nation didn’t need another black commander in chief. On Thursday, Voigt was terminated by the Fairfield Board of Education in a unanimous vote. Voigt said on Friday that he plans to appeal the ruling with the Butler County Court of Appeals.
“We’re hoping it’s just a provocation but I always thought the days that Jews would become scapegoats for whatever reason were long over.”
- Yosef Gurevitz, saw one of the letters telling Jews to register
In the months since Ukraine’s pro-Moscow government of President Viktor Yanukovych was overthrown, accusations of fascism and anti-Semitism from both the pro-Russia and pro-Ukraine sides have been surfacing and have Vladimir Putin worried about the rising tones of hatred against Jews in the region. And now as shadows of the Holocaust…a nightmare straight from the bowels of hell…seem to be resurrecting again…Jews in Donetsk, Ukraine…over 16 years of age…are being told via letter to pay a fee of $50 U.S., provide a list of property they own, and register as Jews with the pro-Russian separatists or face loss of citizenship or expulsion.
Today, only about 70,000 remain of a once thriving two million plus Jewish community and the ghosts have now returned to haunt…the ghosts of the 1.5 million Ukrainian Jews who were exterminated between 1941 and 1945, when most Ukrainians either outright cooperated with the Nazis or simply looked away.

Since his rise to power, a number of people have wondered whether Barack Obama is a Christian or a Muslim. A poll once showed that about 18 percent believe he is a Muslim, even though the Democrat-media complex tells us he is a Christian.
We haven’t received a press release from the Almighty telling us one way or the other, but a post at Now the End Begins pulled together a list of 40 quotes that are quite telling. 20 are Obama quotes on Islam and 20 are Obama quotes on Christianity.
It’s sounding more and more like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., wants to see the Bundy family and their supporters killed.
Hyperbole, you say? Hardly. This is a man who called supporters of the Bundys “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” He also called them unpatriotic, and said that a task force is being put together to “deal” with the Bundys. Reid didn’t say what he meant by that, but you can figure it out for yourself.
