As most of you know, I have a problem with Islam. To be bluntly honest, I don’t trust Islam to not turn radical in its intentions and desires. Time after time, it has been proven it can not be trusted. Even though we are told over and over again that it is merely a religion, just like any other religion, anyone with an eye that will look honestly at the facts can look and see Islam is unlike any other religion. So much so that I wonder if it can really be considered a religion. It is more of a political system than anything else. A political system that roots out and destroys anything and anyone standing in its path. It does have its defenders, → Read More
This post is not to debate the eight years George W. Bush served as President of the United States. I agreed with much of what he tried to do, but also had my disagreements with his policies. Having said that, I have always admired the man as someone who holds the distinction of being President during a terrible time in our history. Very few Presidents have had to deal with the issues he had to face while in office. Given the chance to talk at length with any public figure, past or present, I would choose President Bush, hands down.
Now, we all know how President Obama has handled his years in office. Much of the time he has served in the White House has → Read More
Shaneen Allen is not a new name on Political Realities. I have written twice about her plight after she accidentally went afoul of New Jersey’s antiquated gun laws. You can read those posts here and here. Suffice it to say, this young mother of two young boys from Philadelphia never envisioned being thrown in jail for bringing a gun legally purchased in Pennsylvania into New Jersey. As much as that may be, that is what she is facing. It seems the Garden State doesn’t abide by anyone bringing a gun into their state that isn’t approved and they are throwing the book at this young woman. Never mind the consequences this will have on her two young sons. Let’s all stand and applaud Atlantic County → Read More
If there is one thing that we can always count on, it is that the followers of Islam, the religion of peace, or so we are told, will always take offense when confronted with the truth of what their religion really is. So it is with the case of Oklahoma State Representative John Bennett. He is not one to mince words and dance around the truth, even if it does get Muslims in America in an uproar. What did he say that has them so completely upset with him? He simply stated the truth, but that is something they can not abide.
John Bennett – Islam and Muslim are one in the same. They are adjectives describing their religion. Islam is the religion, Muslim is → Read More
We have covered this issue before on Political Realities. Our government seems insistent on forcing the homosexual agenda down our throats at a rapid pace. We have seen this happen, time after time. Homosexual couples want to get married. They then proceed to accost Christian business owners, attempting to force them to participate in their perverted version of marriage, providing services to a wedding they can not agree with, in good conscience. We are told that this is not really happening, but OK Politechs has a list of several times this has happened. We can now add one more instance of Christian business owners being sued, fined, and otherwise punished for acting on their beliefs. It comes to us from New York.

I never cease to be amazed at how Bill Whittle is able to cut to the chase of any issue. He is a master at digging through the mud and dirt and reaching the crux of any situation. In other words, the truth.
Such is the case with the recent riots, looting, and otherwise all kinds of mayhem in Ferguson, MO. After the shooting of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson, it began to look as if the Trayvon Martin affair was finally being eclipsed by something more sinister and nefarious. While that may be the case, it is also true that the aftermath of the death of Michael Brown had little to do with the actual shooting, or the facts of how this young → Read More
This is not something new. Liberals are fond of pointing out everything they perceive conservatives are doing wrong, but conveniently ignore the “sins” that are glaringly apparent in their own backyard. This is especially true since the Citizens United decision was handed down by the Supreme Court. It chaps liberal skins all the way from Washington, down to the state and local level. They can’t stand it because they don’t have access to the information that would tell them who is spending how much in each election cycle.
Now, these liberals would have us believe that allowing outside groups to spend more money to promote the issues that are important to them has been bad for our system of elections. Countless studies have been performed, → Read More
How many more Americans and others will die before Obama gets serious about this plague of evil?
You may have heard the usual litany from those who want us to refrain from acting to counter the ISIS monsters currently on a killing spree in Iraq and Syria. It’s none of our business they say when Christians and Yazidis are slaughtered in a genocidal rampage.
James Wright Foley is the first American to fall victim to this plague of evil. He was beheaded in a gruesome video (WARNING GRAPHIC). I challenge those who say we should not do anything to counter ISIS to watch that video and realize that unless we stop these monsters they will be coming here to the U.S. Notice that the killer → Read More
I did not intend to write about what is happening in Ferguson, MO so soon, but this question needs to be asked. Why has Officer Darren Wilson, the man who shot Michael Brown, already being tried and convicted before the full facts are known about what happened on August 9? No, a trial has not been conducted, but a grand jury will soon be convened. No, Officer Darren Wilson has not sat in a trial before a jury of his peers, but he has already been convicted in the court of public opinion. That public opinion seems to run as high as the Governor of Missouri.
You can watch the video of Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s statement below, but let me include a quote of → Read More
I have yet to write about the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, for one simple reason. I have not felt like wading into the mud that seems to be getting thicker every day. Even with Missouri National Guard now helping the Missouri Highway Patrol police the area, Monday night was still dangerous on the streets in Ferguson. Dozens were arrested and two people were shot by the protestors. We do not know how this is going to end up, but I believe I can safely say, it will not be good.
Simply put, the situation in Ferguson is a total mess. There is no real reason for it, even if it comes out that the officer had no real reason to shoot → Read More
Not that this will make the slightest difference to those intent on looting, violence or promoting a political agenda!
UPDATE: Attorney General Holder sends 40 FBI Agents to Ferguson to investigate! Meanwhile, in Chicago last weekend 7 were killed and 28 wounded in shootings. No FBI to track down their killers.
UPDATE 2: More than a dozen witnesses support police version of events. Audio of radio caller gives Policeman Darren Wilson version.
UPDATE 3: Democrats erect voter registration booth near Brown Memorial. Tell me this isn’t all about politics!
Autopsy results as well as other information have come out in the past few days that paint a different story from the one being promoted in much of the media. I’ll → Read More
Some things defy reasonable explanation. In the vernacular from the Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas region, that means some things just don’t make sense. Such is the case with the latest from the wonderful government agency charged with making sure you and I do not kill our planet with pollution. I really thought they could get no worse than trying to regulate runoff water from rainfall or bovine flatulence, but the EPA may have just outdone themselves. They are accusing Texas of polluting Illinois. Go figure that one out. Now that you have picked your jaw up off the floor, let us examine, as best we can, this latest batch of stupidity from the halls of big government.
The EPA has the authority, as granted to → Read More
Again this morning, I want to pivot away from Israel, Hamas, and the rest of the world that is in turmoil because of Islamic terrorists. Instead, I want to focus on another of President Obama’s prime achievements. According to him, that is. I would be speaking about ObamaCare. It is the monstrous legislation that only exists because the Democrats rammed it down our throats and Chief Justice John Roberts changed Webster’s Dictionary so he could vote to uphold the tax/penalty. I believe there is ample proof that the bill is a disaster. Nothing in it has worked as designed. From the website down to the tiniest detail, it is a colossal failure. And that’s before it is even fully implemented yet.
There were two main → Read More
