Islam and Sharia Law Can Not Co-exist in Western Cultures 2

Waves of Middle East immigrants is not new to Western Societies. There have been several concentrated movements over the centuries in Europe and then the US and Canada more recently from the late 1880’s.

Islam and Sharia Law Can Not Co-Exist In Western Cultures-1

It is with a heavy heart I begin this series for it clashes with my years of faith and living in a free country. All my life as a Christian I have been taught to value others and through peaceful means to co-exist with those who have much to teach me, as I have them.  There are some in Islamic faith who may be peace-loving and kind but they are very much in the minority and as endangered as all here of faith or not.

Hillary For Expanded Illegal Immigration Fast Track

  We have to hope This pundit never takes office for a lot of reasons.  Here is one which ought to have even liberals worried.  Every liberal or Democrat who is for fast forwarding immigration needs to actually pay attention to what is truth. Why are people angry? ● How about one reason being lack of employment? Consider all the companies either moving overseas to escape our restrictive laws and taxes or those closing their doors because of current laws.  Not only is the government waging war on the freedom to operate a business but turning every state full of … Continue reading

Behind Every Riot — Fueled By Money?

  We here at Hardnox & Friends often and loudly say – trace the event back and we will know who, if not why. One name that always and forever finds its way into every conflagration is George Soros, expounder of higher taxation of rich but dodger of payment. His 13+millions in back taxes have as yet not been pursued fully at least not that I can find.  It received barely a blip on most mainstream media radar when originally reported by Bloomberg and IRS. Don Pero reported on him in The Washington Times back in 2011.  That article can … Continue reading

Baltimore From A Resident Reporter’s Perspective

  What you really need to know about Baltimore, from a reporter who’s lived there for over 30 years Michael A. Fletcher April 28, 2015   It was only a matter of time before Baltimore exploded. In the more than three decades I have called this city home, Baltimore has been a combustible mix of poverty, crime, and hopelessness, uncomfortably juxtaposed against rich history, friendly people, venerable institutions and pockets of old-money affluence. The two Baltimores have mostly gone unreconciled. The violence that followed Freddie Gray’s funeral Monday, with roaming gangs looting stores and igniting fires, demands that something be … Continue reading

Thank You Judge David F. Bauman

Photograph and article from Bizpacreview.com Judge sums up ‘under God’ ruling with brilliant explanation May 13, 2015 by Carmine Sabia  –00– Sometimes even we need to have a positive message rather than righting wrongs, here is one from me. It is becoming rare that the majority of judges actually pay close attention and follow the constitution.  In these times, it is important that our country fight legally on a daily basis to maintain its rights and patriotism from small daycares to colleges, from publicly funded to private, from local to federal from protection to justice.  All are under assault by … Continue reading

UN vs USA on Civil Rights and Violence

Last August the UN decided to weigh in on the issues of civil rights and violence in the US. Apparently the bad boys of the UN have decided the weighty matter of Our civil rights and Our internal violence are so important that they need to pursue this with full weight and measure in the UN. They followed their parliamentary procedures by sending out a warning on the violations to be “corrected” last August and then with an Obama “explanation” review this past week. Get ready to ratchet up your anger meter! NGOs urge US to implement recommendations of UN … Continue reading

Oh The Outrage, As O turns Up TPP Heat

  Trans-Pacific Trade Agreement Citizen.org explains it this way: The TPP is a massive, controversial “free trade” agreement currently being pushed by big corporations and negotiated behind closed doors by officials from the United States and 11 other countries – Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. The TPP would expand the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) “trade” pact model that has spurred massive U.S. trade deficits and job loss, downward pressure on wages, unprecedented levels of inequality and new floods of agricultural imports. The TPP not only replicates, but expands NAFTA’s special protections for … Continue reading

EMP A Real Threat

(Picture from wikihow —  Build-an-EMP-Generator!) We already know that Russia has reopened ballistic missile sales to Iran.

Hard Nosed Texan-Gotta Love ‘Em

Budget Hearing – Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Homeland Security Subcommittee) April 15, 2015 HouseAppropsGOP         Oh I do love to listen to an old warhorse judge.  The video is 2 hours long. Chairman Carter and several others with the subcommittee raked Soldana over the coals.  If you are interested in just the highlights, check out these timings: :15-:35;1:05-1:10; and 1:40-1:55 but I found it all interesting.  Several, especially Carter got quite pithy in their comments.  (I would bet Carter was a very tough judge when on the bench.) At one point Soldana was whining about needing IT … Continue reading
