BEFUNKY screenshotsbillayersdineshdsouzaybfdebateuniversityofmichigan0203_Fotor_Collage COMPRESSED


During a debate last night at the University of Michigan sponsored by the Young Americans Foundation between Bill Ayers and Dinesh D’Souza, the two were asked, “Do either of you feel that our criminal justice system has become too political?”

The exchange lasted for a few moments during which a response by D’Souza stunned the former leader of the Weather Underground.

Ayers’ the first to answer the question said:

“Our political justice system is a catastrophe. It’s a catastrophe. And what was exposed in Ferguson, that the criminal just system is kind of powered, the financing of it is powered by the kind of targeting of poor people. That’s true in Ferguson, that’s true in Chicago….”

But Ayers did not stop there.  Using D’Souza’s overnight incarceration and allegations of campaign finance violation to prove his point, Ayers further stated:

“One of the things that I also think is catastrophic in it, is that the political system is something that is now for sale — it’s on the auction block and Dinesh referred to his time in custody.

I offered to write him a letter to the judge asking him not to put Dinesh in prison, he turned it down — Because I was going to advocate that he go to North Carolina and register voters which would fit the crime of corrupting the political process in New York…I think the criminal justice system is deeply corrupt and it’s corrupted by politics.”

D’Souza pounced:

“The inequity of our criminal justice system is on full display right on this podium right here…So I gave $20,000 of my own money over the campaign finance limit. I got 8 months in overnight confinement. You bombed the Pentagon and tried to bomb all kinds of other things — how much time did you do in the slammer?”


While Ayers attempted to rebut D’Souza statement, he failed ending with D’Souza pointing out the Progressive double standard between the Obama administration with respect to campaign finance violations involving Hillary Clinton and Democratic fundraiser Sant Singh Chatwal, one of many Democratic donors skirted campaign finance laws.

In the case of Chatwal who plead guilty to skirting federal campaign-finance laws and witness tampering, Chatwal walked away with 3 years probation.

Barricading: Barricading is considered deadly physical force…

Suspicious American

In this audio Interview Stewart Rhodes interviews Greg McWhirter, an Oath Keeper SWAT officer, about the road block and tactics used on LaVoy Finicum and the rest of the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom on that fateful night last Tuesday, January 26, 2016.  Greg gives us his expert insight into why most police departments across the country no longer use road blocks, as was used in Oregon this last week that ended with such needless bloodshed.

Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.

Council News:

Council Alumni and all around great guy Michael Haltman at The Political Commentator is involved with the Heroes to Heroes Foundation, a group of former vets that helps U.S. combat veterans suffering with PTSD, jobs, housing, adjusting to civilian life and TBI. Thia was the group that was featured on Donald Trump’s rally for veterans in Iowa that raised $6 million dollars for Heroes To Heroes and other similar groups and whose Honor ring The Donald now wears. Please read his article on the group entitled ‘22 Veterans A Day In The United States Commit Suicide!’ and remember…these men and women went above and beyond for us, regardless of what you think of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The disgusting scandals in the Obama VA have meant that a lot of them have fallen through the cracks. At his rally, Donald Trump made the scathing but accurate comment that the Obama Administration treats illegal migrants better than it does many of our veterans.

I’ve checked this group out and they’re totally legitimate.Click on the above link and do what you can.

Hillary Clinton’s Medication Sure Explains a Lot About Her Campaign – She’s on Rat Poison

Hillary Clinton State Department 02012013 public domain coumadin aka warfarin medication 465 x 375
Independent Sentinel by S. Noble

Hillary Clinton is on a powerful medication that has been used as rat poison and it can cause confusion. I kid you not! How ironic! How telling!

Dr. Ronald Hoffman disclosed that Clinton is currently taking a blood-thinning medication called Coumadin, which was initially introduced and marketed in 1948 as a pesticide designed to kill rats and mice, WND reported.

Hillary is apparently at risk for excessive hemorrhaging, even cerebral hemorrhaging, even from minor falls or other accidents because of this blood-clotting medication.

“Coumadin is the brand name for a drug called Warfarin that initially was developed as a rat poison because it made rats bleed to death,” Hoffman told WND in a telephone interview […]


Independent Sentinel is dead on (no pun intended) in her assessment that Clinton who should not be flying needs to make some lifestyle changes which includes placing her aspirations over the interests of the country.

I feel a need to repeat this before I go…

Another one bites the dust. Former Pennsylvania Senator, Rick Santorum, is ending his 2016 presidential bid today.

Santorum is expected to make an official announcement this evening on Fox News On the Record w/Greta Van Susteren during which he will endorse a candidate.

Washington Times

The former Pennsylvania senator won the Iowa caucuses in 2012 but has been unable to capture that momentum this time around, finishing second-to-last in the crowded Republican field Monday night. Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore finished last with 12 votes….

Santorum is the third GOP candidate to have suspended his 2016 presidential run since Monday.

Former Governor Mike Huckabee canceled his bid immediately after the Iowa Caucuses Monday night followed by a press statement earlier from Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.). Paul will also deliver an official announcement this afternoon.

One a final note: Suspicious to you? Rick Santorum’s Iowa precinct chair didn’t vote for him: ‘My pen ran out of ink’

Latest News From Oregon and the Death of LaVoy Finicum

robert lavoy finicum


Independent Sentinel by S. Noble

The standoff at the Malheur Refuge hasn’t ended and Cliven Bundy is contradicting his son Ammon who urged people in the refuge to end the the protest. He is telling the protesters to stay. The remaining holdouts are David Fry, of Cincinnati; Jeff Banta, of Elko, Nev., and Sean and Sandy Anderson, a married couple from Riggins, Idaho. This entire protest needs to be called off before more people are called.

The family is raising the question of the use of excessive force and a cover up in the death of LaVoy Finicum, the only protester to die so far.

Oregon Live is reporting that LaVoy Finicum’s family is accusing the FBI and the Oregon State Police of covering up the truth. They say the shooting was unjustified. An analysis of the grainy tape and witness testimony has led the family to believe that Finicum was being shot at before he left the vehicle and got out to draw fire away from the vehicle’s other three occupants.

The family released a stronger statement than their original. They claim that he was shot while his hands were in the air.

“We believe he had already been shot before he ever lowered his hands,” the statement read. “We believe some of his hand movements were a natural reflex to being shot.”

“He appears to have been gesturing, or trying to keep his balance while moving in the deep snow. Although he may have been animated, he does not appear to have been threatening or posing any real threat or danger to anyone. The FBI claims that LaVoy had a loaded firearm in an inside pocket of his coat,” the statement read.

The video released was deliberately grainy and without video to sway public opinion, the statement continued […]

Pursuant to the following press statement released earlier, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is suspending his 2016 presidential campaign:

“It’s been an incredible honor to run a principled campaign for the White House. Today, I will end where I began, ready and willing to fight for the cause of Liberty.

Across the country thousands upon thousands of young people flocked to our message of limited government, privacy, criminal justice reform and a reasonable foreign policy. Brushfires of Liberty were ignited, and those will carry on, as will I.

Although, today I will suspend my campaign for President, the fight is far from over. I will continue to carry the torch for Liberty in the United States Senate and I look forward to earning the privilege to represent the people of Kentucky for another term.”

Paul who is up for re-election this year in Kentucky came in fifth place in the Iowa caucuses. He will make an official announcement later today.
