Family Security Matters

TALLAHASSEE, Fla –  Federal authorities are demanding that Florida halt  its push to remove ineligible voters from the voter rolls.

Connecticut Drowning In Debt, Still Manages To Find $300K To Renovate Communist Party Headquarters…

Weasel Zippers

No, not a satire piece.

Via National Review:

The Nutmeg State will be funding the Communist Party.

Yep, despite massive debt and a mushrooming deficit, Governor Dannel Malloy, with the obedient Democrat legislature in tow, will convene the State Bond Commission on June 4th and push through a $300,000 “grant-in-aid to Progressive Education and Research Associates to finance renovations to the New Haven Peoples Center at 37 Howe Street.” The masquerades of Progressive this and People that aside, 37 Howe Street happens to be the headquarters for the Connecticut Communist Party, run by Joelle Fishman, who also happens to be the regional bureau chief for the infamous Peoples World. Which, yes, also happens to be located at 37 Howe Street.

So here we have a state that is awash in red ink, consciously increasing its red ink, to directly send taxpayer dollars to a place that publishes Red ink.

My pal Tom Scott, former state senator and considered by many to be Connecticut’s primo conservative, called to say “Is there anything this Governor is unwilling to spend our money on? We have the highest per-capita debt of any state, we’re the highest taxed state in the nation, and yet Malloy and the Democrats see fit to spend $300,000 to prop up the Communist Party of Connecticut. This is outrageous. And Malloy is a fiscal misfit. We need to turn the heat up on these Democrats to remove this item from the bond commission agenda.”

Travels With Barry Obama In 1981

Western Journalism

The current rage about Barack Obama’s hidden past is over his college transcripts: specifically, how a mediocre student, self-professed to be a pot-smoking, cocaine snorting, jobless free spirit during his Occidental days transferred to and paid for an Ivy League college—Columbia University.

But I think an equally salient question is how Obama paid for his round-the-world trip to Indonesia and Pakistan in the summer of 1981, before he made his way to New York to begin his term at Columbia. Did his wealthy Pakistani friends Wahid Hamid and Mohammed Hasan Chandoo foot the bill? Was Obama dealing drugs to finance the trip? We don’t know because Obama has never addressed the question. It is a question that should be answered by Obama now. Today.
