JOHN WAYNE, AMERICAN

Every day is a challenge as to how to start this post. Then I realized yesterday was The Duke’s birthday. He’d be 105 if he were still with us. It’s hard to imagine (or maybe not) what he’d have to say about this president and what this country has become since he passed. Never a man to mince words, you always knew where he stood. The title is the inscription that’s on his gravestone. He was the cowboy hero every boy wanted to be and a firm supporter of the Viet Nam War when it was unpopular. We could sure use him today. Film Actor (1907–1979 John Wayne was born May 26, 1907, in Winterset, Iowa. He received his first leading film role in The Big Trail (1930). Working with John Ford, he got his next big break in in Stagecoach (1939). His career as an actor took another leap forward when he worked with director Howard Hawks in Red River (1948). Wayne won his first Academy Award in 1969. He died of cancer in 1979. http://www.biography.com/people/john-wayne-9525664

    Parents Walk Out After H.S. Principal Attacks Police for ‘Killing Young Black Men’ in Grad Speech

    THE DUKE WOULD TRACK THIS GUY DOWN AND KICK HIS ASS….JUST FOR BEING STUPID.
    Belton attacked police for “killing young black men.”

    I wanted to be a teacher ‘cause I wanted to change the world,” “I wanted to make it a better place. I’m gonna be honest with you, in a lot of ways I fear that we are not there yet. If we were there, we wouldn’t have conflicts between police killing young black men.”

    Seriously?
    Many parents at the Belton Missouri High School graduation got up and walked out after the offensive comments.

    Teen killer who was youngest on death row after being sentenced at 15 ‘commits suicide’ – two years after her release following huge appeal backed by Pope
    Paula Cooper found dead of self-inflicted gunshot wound in Indianapolis
    Sentenced to death in 1986 at 16 after confessing to stabbing 78-year-old
    Enraged human rights activists and Pope John Paul II made clemency plea
    Cooper’s death sentence was commuted to prison term by Supreme Court
    She was released about two years ago after spending 28 years behind bars
    I REMEMBER THIS CASE.SHE STABBED AN OLD WOMAN WHO HAD BEFRIENDED HER 33 TIMES WITH A 12 INCH BUTCHER KNIFE WHILE THE WOMAN CLUTCHED HER BIBLE AND PRAYED.I’M SURE GOD HAS FORGIVEN HER.
    ALL I CAN SAY IS GOOD RIDDANCE.

    Democrats avoid primary mess in Nevada

    THEIR CAMPAIGN STRATEGY IS TO HAVE THE SEIU RIG THE VOTING MACHINES IN CLARK COUNTY LIKE THEY DID FOR REID IN 2010.YOU’LL NEVER CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE.
    Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) will forgo a run at the Senate in 2016, clearing a path to the Democratic nomination for Sen. Harry Reid’s handpicked successor, Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto.
    When Reid announced earlier this year that he wouldn’t seek a sixth term in office, he quickly moved to back Masto, who would become the first Hispanic woman to serve in the Senate if she won the seat.

    • Isn’t it interesting that Harry Reid and Mitt Romney are both Mormons? Wonder how LDS views the one-man demonic apostasy that is Nevada’s senior senator.

      Perhaps it was a roving band of renegade missionary thugs that gave him the black eye …? Those guys in the skinny black ties get KUH-RAZZY after dark, so I hear.

    Ann Coulter on Diversity: We’re Not More Diverse. We’re More Mexican.
    I’VE SUSPECTED FOR A VERY LONG TIME THAT THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF ILLEGALS IS BETWEEN 30-40 MILLION.THERE’S NO ACCURATE WAY TO TRACK IT,BUT THERE’S A HELL OF A LOT OF THEM

    Tuesday night Ann Coulter shut down Fusion TV host Jorge Ramos when he tried to tell her the numbers in her new book, Adios America, were wrong. In the book, out on Monday, June 1, Coulter estimates that the number of undocumented immigrants in America is about 30 million—not 11 million, as Ramos insisted.

    “The number we keep hearing is 11 million, 11 million, 11 million. That’s so weird! It’s been 11 million for a decade,”

    BREAKING: In A HUGE Blow To The President, Appeals Court Has Just Upheld Block On Amnesty

    NOW IF ONLY BARRY GAVE SO MUCH AS A FART IN THE WIND ABOUT COURT ORDERS THIS WOULD,INDEED,BE A SETBACK.
    In a stunning setback to President Obama’s effort to defer deportation and grant certain citizenship rights to millions of illegal immigrants, a federal appeals court has just upheld an injunction blocking Obama’s executive order on amnesty. The Washington Times reports that the highly anticipated ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit marks the second major legal setback for an administration that was skirting the Congress and charging ahead on its highly controversial program to defer deportation for as many as 5 million illegals.

    Police officer ‘dragged into the woods to be killed by three men’ saved when his K-9 chases after him and sends the attackers running
    EVER SEE A PIT BULL IN THE BACK OF A K-9 UNIT?NEITHER HAVE I


    Deputy Todd Frazier of Long Beach, Mississippi, pulled over last Monday night to check on a car with the driver passed out in the front seat
    He was quickly ambushed by the driver and two other men who dragged him in the woods to ‘slit his throat’
    He was able to unlock the backdoor of his squad car from his key chain and release K-9 Lucas, who bit at least one man and scared attackers off
    The men, who drove off in a Town Car, are still at large
    Frazier suffered multiple bodily injuries and a two-and-a-half-inch cut to his forehead from what a doctor believes was a box cutter

    • Here’s the money quote from the article: “We get a BOLO (be-on-the-lookout) from the state alerting us that the Black Gangster Disciples have put out an SOS, or Shoot on Sight, for police officers,’ he said.”

      It’s never a good sign when your little social club is called the Black Gangster Disciples. I wonder if the MS cops can initiate an ‘SOS’ on BGD’s sorry dusky ass?

    How Republicans saved Stephanopoulos
    WE SHOULDN’T EVEN BE SURPRISED BY THIS ANYMORE
    THEY’D SELL OUT THEIR OWN MOTHERS TO GET THEIR FACES ON TV.

    Two weeks ago, conservatives were calling for George Stephanopoulos to recuse himself from all 2016 presidential campaign coverage on the grounds that the ABC News anchor had failed to disclose to viewers his financial donations to the Clinton Foundation while reporting.

    Three days after that controversy broke, Stephanopoulos hosted an exclusive interview with Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Then, on Wednesday, he landed an even bigger exclusive: Rick Santorum, the former Republican senator from Pennsylvania, would be announcing his bid for the presidency. Stephanopoulos also landed the first interview with Santorum, which will take place this afternoon.
