In 1983, the United States invaded the tiny island nation of Grenada under the guise of a request for intervention by the Organization of American States but in reality more because then President Ronald Regan felt that the American people needed a victory to restore their morale after Viet Nam.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wowed the beltway elite and even Democrats during Saturday’s annual Gridiron event, showing why the Ivy Leaguer has confounded and been vilified by many with whom he shares the same intellectual pedigree. The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.’s mainstream and “elite” journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can. Yet Cruz refuses to be co-opted by them politically, instead choosing to [...]
While Senator Ted Cruz may be the bug up the rear of the Progressive establishment on both the left and the right, he’s my hero.
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health is retrieving what it can of 40,000 prophylactics donated to Boston public schools after outraged parents queried the propriety of the idiom and pictures displayed on the packaging. H/t I am the Stig (Facebook).
How is it that school officials failed to recognize that messages on the packaging such as “One lucky lady,” “hump one,” and “tasty one,” which was accompanied by a picture of a shark preying on a small fish” is tasteless and inappropriate for teenagers?
News of the risqué packaging surfaced after, as reported by the Boston Globe, during a discussion, nurse midwife and former school committee member, a shocked Helen Dajer was presented with the prophylactics by a high school nurse concerned about the packaging.
….The nurse, concerned about the wrappers, showed her the condoms, Dajer said. ‘I was horrified,’ said Dajer, who supports distributing condoms but thought they would be in plain wrappers. ‘As a mother of three teenagers, there was no way I wanted my kids to be given condoms with those wrappers….’
Last week, a parent posted a comment along with a photograph of the prophylactics to twitter (below) with the statement, “Free condoms @bostonschools looking for BPS administrators to explain why this packaging is ok #misogynistic #nojoke”

The policy put into place last year by Boston’s public school committee for distribution to high school students after they received safe-sex counseling.
The production company of the prophylactics is making amends by donating replacements.
To think that all of this could have been avoided if public schools stayed out of the contraceptive distribution business and focused on educating not indoctrinating or corrupting the morals of our young.
UPDATE: Having amended their mantra from “it’s for the children” to “it’s for the disabled children,” anti-charter school advocates the likes of one can expect to include Bertha Lewis, formerly of the corrupt and now defunct ACORN and no doubt with the backing of the teachers’ union funding will stage a protest today outside of Success Academy’s Harlem 4.
Remembering Occupy Wall Street, my bet is that the protesters will intimidate, harass and threaten students of Success Academy and their parents at 4:30 p.m. when classes let out.
As if Bill de Blasio’s stance on NYC’s charter schools not far left enough, many of Sandinista Bill’s comrades have concluded that the mayor’s assault on charter schools, which is only the beginning, did not go far enough. Thus, they have decided to push the envelope in the war against charter schools by filing a lawsuit against de Blasio.
NYC Communists sue de Blasio for not overturning additional charter school co-locations.
“…Upset that the mayor didn’t go far enough, Public Advocate Letitia James and Council Speaker Melissa Mark Viverito are moving ahead with their lawsuit to overturn other charter school co-locations that were approved by de Blasio last week, The Post has learned.
James is hosting an emergency meeting with parents in Brooklyn on Saturday to discuss the decision to proceed with the suit. She had pulled back on the litigation pending action by Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina and City Hall….”
What a small and politically vicious man New York’s new mayor is. Bill de Blasio doesn’t like charter schools. They are too successful to be tolerated. Last week he announced he will drop the ax on three planned Success Academy schools. (You know Success Academy: It was chronicled in the film “Waiting for Superman.” It’s one of the charter schools the disadvantaged kids are desperate to get into.) Mr. de Blasio has also cut and redirected the entire allotment for charter facility funding from the city’s capital budget….
See why the success of charters schools; namely, Success Academy is such a threat to ideologues.
“Of all the CPAC 2014 speeches I have heard, and I haven’t heard them all, Rand Paul received more robust applause than anyone. to this time — that I’ve heard. As with John Bolton’s speech, this one will make you stay awake at night, thinking, thinking. (see other CPAC Speech transcripts below)
‘There’s a battle going on. Don’t forget, there is a great battle going on for the heart and soul of America. The Fourth Amendment is equally as important as the Second Amendment, and conservatives cannot forget this.’ ~ Rand Paul
Imagine with me for a moment, imagine a time when liberty is again spread from coast to coast. Imagine a time when our great country is again governed…
In 2016, America needs a candidate that will invalidate everything this Pos has put into place. Nothing less will do.

Investors Business Daily – Obama’s New Asylum Decree Favors Muslims Over Christians
Immigration: As President Obama offers asylum to “minor” terrorists providing “limited” material support to terrorism, he’s slamming shut the door on thousands of Christians fleeing terrorism in Muslim lands like Egypt.
In another end-run around Congress, President Obama has unilaterally eased immigration requirements for foreigners linked to terrorism.
He ordered the State Department and Homeland Security to ignore a post-9/11 law barring entry to those giving political or charitable aid to Hamas and other known terrorist groups.
A dozen years after the horrific attacks on our nation by foreign Islamic terrorists, the Obama administration has decided a little support to foreign Islamic terrorists is OK. Continue here.
Pick a topic, any topic. Barack Obama and his “progressive” cohorts have been wrong about it. Global warming? “Arab Spring”? Stimulus? Benghazi? Syria? The “reset” with Russia? Obamacare? His is a braintrust that has achieved perfection — they’re always wrong.
Why a population of theoretically intelligent citizens continues to trust with their country’s future left-wing politicians who have proved themselves monumentally unqualified to govern is a question best answered by a qualified psychotherapist or two (if such things exist). “You Bet Your Life” should be remembered as a TV show from the ’50s, not a description of America in the second decade of the 21st century. Even such a formerly staunch Democratic media ally as the Washington Post has come to realize an eternal truth: Nations will always respect strength and take advantage of weakness….
Debo Adegbile argued that Christian churches should no longer be allowed to enjoy the “ministerial exception” — an exemption from anti-discrimination laws, based on the First Amendment’s freedom of religion. He argued that the government not only should have a say in how those churches are being run, but who runs them, including government approval of ministers of those churches.
Actually that’s not to shocking considering Barack Obama’s attempts to force his beliefs into religious doctrine, his comment about bitter clingers, the fact our military is training soldiers that Christians are terrorists and forcing Christian Chaplains to perform homosexual marriages….

Day after day we can see the same old stories reported on the boob-tube via the msm…they’re never ending. Recently it’s been that crazy bat from hell that drove her car in the ocean with her children inside with murder in mind. Or the big mouth attention getter Elijah Cummings vs Issa during the Lois “I take the Fifth” Lerner IRS hearing a few days back…then there’s the never-ending ‘Blade Runner’ murder trial. On and on it goes…rinse, lather and repeat! Yet the same media cannot take a few minutes out of their busy broadcast time to report the white genocide that’s been going on in South Africa for years now. …
…For example, we have the slaughter of another farming family – this time the Schutte family – an elderly German farming couple and their son – who had flown into South Africa from Germany to surprise his Dad on his 77th birthday.
The couple, Eckard (76) and Elizabeth Schutte and their son Lutz (33) were so badly mutilated that the police could not by yesterday afternoon say with any certainty how they had been murdered.
The police aren’t certain what happened exactly, but they suspect that when the wife Elizabeth left to go pick up their son from the airport, the barbarians attacked the Dad. He was found with his neck and chest carved open. The barbarians then lay in wait for the wife to return. Elizabeth was found with her head crushed in with a heavy object. The son’s wounds aren’t described, apart from the article stating that all three bodies were found with multiple, frenzied stab wounds and all the bodies were burned….
This pattern has been going on for nearly twenty years. The murders are brutal and the nature of the thug, barbarian. My biggest fear is that the genocide will continue until the last White person is slaughtered of flees Africa with their families and loved ones for their lives. After which Africa will revert to its prehistoric state and the people will find themselves left only fellow Blacks to rape, pillage and slaughter. (Oh wait, they’re doing that too.) At the rate that continent is going, it will not be long for far.
Earlier this week four men were arrested for the murders of the Schutte family. Allegedly three of the men are former employees of the Schutte family, one of which was terminated early morning on the day of the murders.
The slaughter of the Schutte family brings the barbaric murders of whites at the hands of black racists to 53 this year and it’s only March.
Finally, the media blackout is a crime against humanity and a threat considering that due to our friendly open border stance, these animals are among the riffraff walking across our border every day.

House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.) and Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) laid out their plans to counter President Barack Obama’s executive overreach, in a conference call Thursday.
The House will continue its efforts to push back against the “imperial presidency” next week, by voting on additional legislation that would allow Congress to challenge executive moves in federal court.
‘Clearly President Obama has taken the über presidency to a whole new level,’ McMorris Rodgers said. ‘While it’s not new for presidents to stretch their constitutional limits of power, executive overreach has accelerated at a faster pace under President Obama….’
