    JFK Conspiracy Theories

    Author Administrator

    Two conspiracy theorists die and go to heaven. St. Peter tells them that Heaven is a place of all knowledge, so they can each ask him one question and he will reveal the answer to them. The first one says "Who killed John F. Kennedy?" St. Peter says "Lee Harvey Oswald." The other says "Who was he working with?" St. Peter says "He acted alone." The two of them look at each other and say "Wow! The coverup is bigger than we thought!" But seriously, what keeps this stuff going? Some would say the evidence. Other would say mental illness. I myself am unsure, and I have a hard time really focusing on this one as I didn't live through it. This article is pretty much a starting point for me and a note to self. Steve, debunk this one.

    Defending Incognito

    As with any story, it is hard to say what happened unless you were there yourself. So why do I feel the need to post an article defending Richie Incognito? Because I can recognize a good snow job when I see one, and there is a blizzard coming from Jonathan Martin and company on this deal. Now to be fair, I am well aware that I am in the minority opinion on this one. Chances are if you are reading this you already have an opinion on this topic. Either I am preaching to the choir or I am dealing with a skeptic who wants to get a good chuckle at a brainwashed Dolphins fan defending the indefensible. So while I typically take the approach of building a good case, let me lay the best logical argument I have on you to kick this thing off.

    Don't Drink The Tea

    Scott Brown, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, and Rick Snyder. What do these guys have in common? If you are a tea party member, then you already know the answer. Rick Snyder accepted the Medicare expansion for his state. Marco Rubio tried to tackle immigration reform. Scott Brown... who am I kidding? Like they need a reason? Heck, Chris Christie hugged Obama, let's throw him under the Tea Party Express. These are all candidates once endorsed by the Tea Party who have found themselves on the outs with the same group.  Now, with another midterm election looming around the corner, it appears Mitch McConnell has made the Tea Party Hit List as well. But before you guys get too far into this, would you kindly allow me to present you with some simple logic?

    If you think political talk radio is a brutal place, you should try sports talk radio. In the world of news talk, you have a biased hosed with a political agenda attempting to spin current events to make you see them his way. In the world of sports talk, you largely have a field of minds so jammed with statistics and dates that they are unable to form a point of view on anything other than a simple Vegas line, let alone manage to try to find a way to spin the event for the mindless masses who tune it. This can make listening to channels like Mad Dog Radio on Sirius and XM Radio an exercise in frustration. Yet it is an exercise that I perform almost daily, and occasionally I call in to try to straighten some of these guys out. My latest beef? The New York Knicks.

  • Abortion: Leopards Vs Hyenas

    Author Administrator

    One of the major drawbacks of being a blogger who has opinions that don't always fit the mainstream of either political party is that, after awhile, the party faithful tend to tune you out. Truth be told, I tend to get more responses from the left than from the right when I post my articles to facebook. On the issue of abortion, I am a guy who was once in the pro life political camp until my views evolved (politically, not personally) to pro choice. Yet I have long believed, ever since I knew there even was such an issue, that we should all be able to find some common ground on a child that has been born alive. That was, of course, before I knew about a State Senator from Illinois named Barack Obama and a doctor from Pennsylvania named Kermit Gosnell.

A Half Vast Left Wing Cover Up?

Written by Administrator on .

Keith EllisonI have never minded asking the tough questions, but sometimes I do wonder why it has to be me. Either way, it has to be, so here goes. Last week we had congressional hearings into the radicalization of Muslims in America, as I'm sure you all know. Representative Keith Ellison, from Minnesota's 5th district, gave an emotional testimony (okay, he cried like a girl) in opposition to the hearings. Brave? I suppose to some. Questionable? To me, yes. I think of things in a very practical way. What might possibly come of these hearings? It is likely that we will either discover that there is a problem of U.S. Muslims being radicalized, or that there is not a problem and the while issue has been over-blown. Hence, I wonder why a Muslim would protest this. Assuming that it is a religion of peace and love, and that the vast majority of it's members practice this religion in such a manner, wouldn't they want the hearings to get the truth out?

Now I assume that Mr. Ellison is an honorable man, and he is perhaps either afraid of what the hearings could turn up or he is simply saddened by the bad spotlight on his religion. I don't intend to make any accusation here against him, but I did decide to check into these hearings and see which answer is more likely. Was their some damning evidence that Ellison would have likely known about that would show there is a radicalization amongst Muslims, or was it largely empty rhetoric that that served little purpose other than to shame his faith? I was rather shocked to find this.

Minneapolis Community Activist

Founder of the Somali Education and Advocacy Center

Abdirizak Bihi knows firsthand the devastating human toll that jihadist recruitment has on families. In November 2008, his teenage nephew joined a group of Somali-American youth who sneaked out of their Minnesota homes and went to Somalia to fight for the al-Shabaab terrorist organization. Burhan Hassan had a promising future before that, and had planned to go to Harvard. Instead, he was killed in Mogadishu in June 2009.

Bihi has spoken out against the radicalization of Somali youth ever since.

Since 2007, more than 20 teenagers and young men from the Minneapolis area disappeared and went to Somalia to fight for al-Shabaab. At least four of them have been killed. Bihi says the indictment in August of 14 people charged with providing money, services and personnel confirm what many local Somalis have long suspected – that al-Shabaab operatives have been raising money from them under false pretenses.

Like many of the others who went to Somalia to join al-Shabaab, Burhan Hassan had been spending a great deal of time in local mosques before leaving the United States. Bihi believes that the leadership of a local mosque, the Abubakar as-Saddique Mosque in Minneapolis, has been less than forthcoming about who his nephew was meeting with there.

Instead, the mosque has sought to ridicule and discredit anyone who questioned fundraising practices there, Bihi charges. He said mosque leaders tried to discourage parents from speaking out when young Somalis began disappearing in 2007 – warning them that if they talked to the FBI, they would be incarcerated at Guantanamo Bay. He claims that CAIR also worked actively to discourage Somalis from talking to the FBI.

A group of about 50 Somalis picketed outside a CAIR social event in 2009 saying the group was interfering with an investigation into the men's disappearances.

Now, I don't mean to be too critical here, but would Ellison have likely known about this? It is happening not only in his home state, but in the district he represents. If he didn't know about it, he is totally incompetent. And if he does know that in his small district in one state that over the last four years over 20 men have left to fight for a terrorist group, would that not fit the bill of investigation worthy?

Let me put it this way. If Cheney were loudly protesting hearings into Halliburton and this is what came out of them, what would be said?

Representative Ellison had to know that this was going on. So why stand in the way of the hearings? I would like to hear him asked this question, and I have emailed his office to personally ask for his response since I have little faith in anyone in the media to pay any attention and ask the question.
