“The magic is as wide as a smile and as narrow as a wink, loud as laughter and quiet as a tear, tall as a tale and deep as emotion. So strong, it can lift the spirit. So gentle, it can touch the heart. It is the magic that begins the happily ever after.” – Unknown

Sheriff Joe warns amnesty judge on ‘defiant’ Obama

President’s refusal to obey ‘another affront to the rule of law’.

An attorney for Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona’s Maricopa County is asking the judge who ordered federal bureaucrats not to implement President Obama’s amnesty-by-memo plan to order a hearing over the administration’s apparent refusal to abide by the order.

A notice and recommendation was filed Friday in the Texas case, which was brought by 26 states, by attorney Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch on behalf of Arpaio, who has his own lawsuit against Obama over amnesty but joined the Texas case in a friend-of-the-court filing.

“Several reports indicate that the executive branch under the Obama administration has not complied with this court’s temporary injunction, but continues full-speed to implement a grant of amnesty and related benefits to approximately 5 million citizens of foreign countries who are illegally in the United States under the defendants’ November 20, 2014, executive action programs implemented by several memoranda issued by Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson,” the filing explains.

The suggestion is accompanied by a motion seeking “further leave” of the court to file the request.

Mark Levin CPAC 2015 Full Speech (Video)

“We are a nation of citizens, and I am sick and tired of the American citizen being demeaned and treated as a second class citizen, while anybody who crosses the border is treated as the most virtuous human being on the face of the Earth.” Mark Levin

Actress Stacey Dash Speaks Out About Hollywood Backlash After Coming Out as Conservative

Actress Stacey Dash, best known for her role in the film Clueless, has announced plans to reveal the liberal backlash she faced upon coming out as a conservative in the movie industry, among other things, in a tell-all book.

Dash, who first mentioned her political leanings when she endorsed Mitt Romney for president on Twitter in 2012, will recount her life story in a new book titled There Goes my Social Life.

In a statement, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter, the actress credits her conservative beliefs, along with details of her childhood in the South Bronx and her film career, for her “strong opinions about the value of a good education, the importance of family, the inanity of political correctness, and the power of personal responsibility.”

Dash, now a Fox News contributor, has yet to let scrutiny from critics silence her and continues to push buttons on the far left.

During the broadcast of the 87th Academy Awards ceremony last Sunday, Patricia Arquette utilized her Best Actress in a Supporting Role acceptance speech to plea for equal rights for women.

“It is our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America,” she said.

‘You Morons! You Useful Idiots!’: The Report That Made Glenn Beck Lose It on Radio (Video)

“Sound like the way the government is supposed to run?” Beck demanded. “Does that sound like net neutrality? Does that sound like these big, evil corporations don’t have anything to do with anything? I mean, it’s being written by the big evil corporations and special interest groups! Your whole point is, we don’t want special interest groups and we don’t want big, evil corporations to have special access! They just wrote it, you nincompoop!”

Glenn Beck lost it on his radio program Thursday after his co-host Stu Burguiere read him a Politico report saying FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler “made some last-minute revisions to his net neutrality plan” after Google, Free Press and New America’s Open Technology Institute “asked the commission to revise language they said could unintentionally allow Internet service providers to charge websites for sending content to consumers.”

“So they know the specific language of the bill,” Beck said. “And as American citizens, the ones who will be affected by this, we don’t know that language. We’re not allowed to see it! We can’t get the commissioner that we pay to go and testify on the contents of what’s in that proposal.”

Rudy Is Right

Barack Obama doesn’t even like America.

Rudy Giuliani is in the stocks for saying that he does not believe that President Barack Obama “loves America.” He said this at a small, private dinner for Scott Walker, who probably will not be inviting Giuliani to very many events in the near future.

Giuliani went on to say that he wasn’t questioning the president’s patriotism — angels and ministers of grace defend us! — only noting that the president’s rhetoric is decidedly low-cal on the American exceptionalism but full-fat when it comes to criticism.

It may be the case that the president is a practitioner of the Smokey Robinson school of patriotism: “I don’t like you, but I love you.” Something’s really got a hold on this guy, and it is not an excessive fervor for the American order.

Questions about patriotism and love of country are, according to our self-appointed referees, out of bounds, déclassé, boob bait for bubbas, etc. Those are questions that we are not allowed to ask in polite society. Why? Because polite society does not want to hear the answers.

RIP Internet, Ron Paul’s Stern Warning

Ron Paul called upon American’s to stand up against the federal government to take back the internet after the FCC passed the ‘net neutrality’ bill, effectively placing the internet under the governments control.

Ron Paul posted the following on his Facebook Page:

Today the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a non-elected federal government agency, voted three-to-two to reclassify broadband Internet as a common carrier service under Title II of the Communications Act. This means that – without the vote of Congress, the peoples’ branch of government – a federal agency now claims the power to regulate the Internet. I am surprised that even among civil liberties groups some claim the federal government increasing regulation of the Internet somehow increases our freedom and liberty.

The truth is very different. The adoption of these FCC rules on the Internet represents the largest regulatory power grab in recent history. The FCC’s newly adopted rule takes the most dynamic means of communication and imposes the regulatory structure designed for public utilities. Federal regulation could also open the door to de facto censorship of ideas perceived as threatening to the political class – ideas like the troops should be brought home, the PATRIOT Act should be repealed, military spending and corporate welfare should be cut, and the Federal Reserve should be audited and ended.

Rand Paul Wows CPAC Crowd, Talks Privacy, Tax Cuts, Hillary Clinton (Video)

“In the coming weeks, I will propose the largest tax cut in American history.”


World News Videos | US News Videos

Sen. Rand Paul got a rousing reception this afternoon at the Conservative Political Action Conference, lighting up a crowd that tends to have a libertarian streak to it, saying, “In the coming weeks, I will propose the largest tax cut in American history.”

Speaking with rolled-up sleeves, he promised to pitch “a tax cut that will leave more money in the paychecks of every worker in America. My tax plan will keep the IRS out of your life and out the way of every job creator in America. My plan will also cut spending and balance the budget in just five years.”

Paul, R-Ky., blasted Congress, now controlled by Republicans, calling it “dysfunctional.”

“Often, bills are plopped on our desk with only a few hours to review,” he said. “No one, and I mean no one, is able to read what is in the bill. I propose something truly outrageous: Congress should read every bill.”
