Government Says Get Ready For Zombies

The Homeland Security Department urged citizens on Thursday to prepare for a zombie apocalypse, according to The Associated Press. The rationale behind the warning is that if you are prepared for zombies, you’ll probably be able to survive a national disaster.

The government recommends that you have an evacuation plan in place, a change of clothes, water, medications and flashlights.

This isn’t the first time the government has warned citizens about the zombie apocalypse. In May 2011, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a post urging people to prepare.

At that time, the following supplies were recommended:

  • Water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
  • Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
  • Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
  • Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
  • Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
  • Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
  • First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)

Earlier this year, following Rudy Eugene’s cannibalistic attack in Miami, the CDC denied the existence of zombies.

Agency spokesman David Daigle wrote in an email to the Huffington Post: “CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms).”

CNN Grills Wasserman Schultz, DNC

It’s not every day that the MSM comes down hard on the Democratic Party. But on Wednesday, following the floor vote to put God and Jerusalem back in the party’s platform, CNN didn’t pull any punches. Kudos to Anderson Cooper and company.

During an interview, CNN’s Brianna Keilar put Democratic National Committee Chairwoman and U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) in the hot seat. Keilar strung together a series of tough questions. First, Keilar asked Wasserman Schultz, a Jew, if the omission of Jerusalem was disconcerting. Then, Keilar asked if the omission of God was a “technical oversight as well.” Furthermore, Keilar questioned if such a thing could just be overlooked. Keilar also pointed out that it was clear that the floor vote to amendment the platform was not two-thirds.

After the interview, CNN’s panel continued their criticism of Wasserman Schultz and the Democratic National Convention. Cooper said Wasserman Schultz is living in an “alternate universe.”

Among the best one liners of the panel:

“Evidently she was so upset that God and Jerusalem were left out of the platform that it curled her hair.”

“God and Jerusalem were booed on the floor of the Democratic convention today.”

“Did she ever get away with ‘The dog ate my homework.’?”

“I think it was handled badly from beginning to end. Now we’re going to pay a price for it as Democrats. …We need the big dog (Bill Clinton).”

Wasserman Shultz also told ABC that “There was no fight,” within the party over the platform.

Obama Says He Made ‘The Point,’ With ‘You Didn’t Build That’

In a recent interview with Virginia’s NBC 12, President Barack Obama said he “regrets” his “syntax,” but not the point he made when he told business owners, “You didn’t build that.” The President claims that it is easy to determine what he meant.

Republicans have used Obama’s Roanoke, Va., speech as a battle cry, claiming that Democrats do not understand small business and its role in the economy.

In July, Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney responded to Obama’s comment:

To say that Steve Jobs didn’t build Apple, that Henry Ford didn’t build Ford Motor, that Papa John didn’t build Papa John Pizza, that Ray Crock didn’t build McDonalds, that Bill Gates didn’t build Microsoft, you go down the list, that Joe and his colleagues didn’t build this enterprise, to say something like that is not just foolishness, it’s insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in America. It’s wrong.

In the most recent interview, Obama was asked point-blank about the controversy and its effect on the campaign. He responded by saying that he made the point he wanted to make. That is, in order for businesses to be successful, “we all have to invest in schools, and roads, and bridges.” He went on to explain that “You didn’t build that,” essentially meant, “You didn’t start the road project.”

He added that there is “a tendency for the other side to shade the truth a little bit.”

When the interviewer pointed out that some business owners did read the whole speech and doing so made them even more upset, Obama noted that such people would probably be Republicans listening to “Republican talking points.”

We All Belong To The Government?

The Democratic National Convention kicked off with a video meant to unite all Americans. The production claims that “Government is the only thing we all belong to.”

The Mitt Romney campaign seized the opportunity and tweeted, “We don’t belong to government, government belongs to us.”

Despite the video playing at the DNC, the Barack Obama-Joe Biden campaign quickly pointed out that the video was not produced by the DNC, but rather the host committee.

“The video in question was produced and paid for by the host committee of the city of Charlotte. It’s neither an OFA nor a DNC video, despite what the Romney campaign is claiming,” said the Obama campaign.

Dan Murrey, executive director of the host committee, backed up the DNC’s claim:

The “Welcome to Charlotte” video was solely produced and paid for by the Host Committee’s New American City Fund, which promotes the city of Charlotte and welcomes our guests. The intent of this video was to tell the story of this region and it is completely unaffiliated with the Obama campaign or the Democratic National Committee.


Democrats Snub God, Reconsider

Barack Obama’s name is found more than 200 times in the Democrats’ 40-page platform. Mitt Romney even makes an appearance. But one name was missing in the original platform presented to delegates: God.

In 2008, the platform read:

We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.

This year, the platform excluded the reference to God.

Also omitted were references to Jerusalem.

In 2008, the document read: “Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel. The parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.”

Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) refused to address the issue in an interview on Fox News, saying: “God is not a franchise of the Republican Party.”

According to CNN, a Democratic official suggested that the omission of God is “about the growing middle class.”

In response to criticism, delegates voted on Wednesday on an altered version of the platform. CNN reported:

In an unscripted moment, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa asks crowd to affirm the suspension/adoption of the party’s platform–it took three voice votes to affirm. Though the final voice vote was taken as approval for adoption of the altered party language, it was unclear if a majority of delegates were in agreement

In 2004, the Democrats’ platform mentioned God seven times.

Republicans mentioned God 10 times in their official 2012 document.

TSA At Republican, Democratic Conventions

The Transportation Security Administration screened those at the Republican National Convention as well as the Democratic National Convention. Some people are asking this question: What do the conventions have to do with transportation?

At least 55 TSA agents will be working the DNC in Charlotte, N.C., screening at Time Warner Cable Arena, the Convention Center and Bank of America, the three sites of the convention. The agency has also stepped up screening at the Charlotte Douglas Airport with an additional 161 screeners.

In Tampa, Fla., last week, the personal belongings of those attending the RNC were examined with an X-ray screener.

“This illustrates how the TSA’s presence at public events which have nothing to do with transportation is becoming normalized as the federal agency’s bloated budget greases the skids for thousands upon thousands of unannounced checkpoints across the country,” wrote Paul Joseph Watson.

The TSA was also present at a Paul Ryan event in Florida.

92-Year-Old Shoots Burglar, Police Seize Weapon Used

A 92-year-old World War II veteran is upset with deputies for how they treated him after he shot an intruder. Upon their arrival, the police told the shooter, Earl Jones, to lift his hands and they took his rifle.

According to Jones, three men broke into his rural Kentucky home in Boone County. When Jones heard them in his basement at about 2 a.m. Monday, he grabbed his .22 caliber rifle and sat in a chair, waiting on the burglars.

When the door opened, Jones fired a shot, killing Lloyd Maxwell, 24. Two robbers with Maxwell, Ryan Dalton and Donnie Inabnit, were apprehended and charged with second degree burglary.

“I was hoping another one would come up; I aimed right for his heart,” said Jones. “I didn’t go to war for nothing. I have the right to carry a gun. That’s what I told the police this morning.”

Jones believes the rifle used in the shooting should not have been taken by police.

“How am I going to protect myself if they come back looking for revenge?” he asked. “It was simple. That man was going to take my life. He was hunting me. I was protecting myself.”

Church Sign Violates County Rule

The Church of the Good Shepherd in Vienna, Va., is being corralled by Fairfax County because of its sign. The church’s LED sign changed more than twice during a 24-hour period, a violation of county code.

One of the offending messages was an invitation for citizens to sit in air-conditioning after a storm knocked out power to many homes.

“Welcome, come on in and beat the heat,” the sign read.

The next message read, “Visit us at”

Had the church stopped with two messages, it would have been fine. But when a third message appeared within a 24-hour period advertising a prayer group, the church was told it would have to comply by county code or remove the sign.

The church believes it should have the freedom to post multiple messages a day, such as emergency information important to the community. It thinks that a person who angrily complained about “that Las Vegas sign” influenced the county.

The Church of the Good Shepherd views the county’s rule as an infringement on its freedom of speech and has hired an attorney.

Mothers Who Have Had Abortions At Higher Risk For Preterm Labor

Previous studies have shown that a mother who chooses to have an abortion puts her own health at risk. Now a study out of Finland shows that she puts other people at risk as well: her future children.

The researchers found that women who had multiple previous abortions were more likely to give birth before 28 weeks. That’s almost three months early.

“In terms of public health and practical implications, health education should contain information of the potential health hazards of repeat induced abortions, including very preterm birth and low birthweight in subsequent pregnancies,” said co-author of the study, Reija Klemetti, Ph.D., of the National Institute for Health and Welfare in Helsinki.

Relax, Eat Chocolate To Prevent Stroke

Two new studies have been released which may help you keep from having a stroke.

First, researchers in Madrid believe that type-A personalities are more likely to have a stroke. High-strung people experience more stress and, therefore, are more likely to experience a stroke.

“This study is useful and valuable because it shows us that there is an association between stress, type A personalities and stroke risk,” said Dr. Deepak Bhatt, director of the integrated cardiovascular intervention program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. “Stress can elevate blood pressure, and high blood pressure is a major risk factor for stroke.”

Second, researchers in Stockholm suggest that eating moderate amounts of chocolate could stave off a stroke. The study found that those who ate the most chocolate had a 17 percent lower risk of stroke.

“These findings suggest that moderate chocolate consumption may lower the risk of stroke,” said co-author Susanna Larsson. “Because chocolate is high in sugar, saturated fat and calories, it should be consumed in moderation.”

So, if you want to lower your chances of having a stroke, chill out and enjoy some chocolate.

NYC Schools Soften Discipline Code

Smoking, cursing and cutting class will no longer result in suspension for students in New York City. Schools in the city are softening the discipline code.

Those who defend the new policy say that students cannot learn if they are not in school.

“Our goal is to make sure the schools are providing a safe environment for our students, but also we just don’t push students out of the classroom where they’re not learning as well,” said Chancellor Dennis Walcott.

Walcott suggested that counseling may be a better option.

“Well, I’m still extremely tough when it comes to disruptive students, but our goal is also to make sure if counseling is appropriate we put counseling in place for them and not just suspend. We will do suspensions when merited,” he said.

But some disagree with the new policy, including 14-year-old Brandon Aviles, whose friends have been suspended: “It teaches them a lesson and tells them not to do it again.”

California Passes Bill To Ban Therapy For Gays

A therapy intended to turn homosexuals and bisexuals into heterosexuals will not be allowed after a bill was passed by California’s Democrat-controlled Assembly on Tuesday. The bill, which prohibits children from undergoing conversion therapy, passed with a 51-21 vote. Gay-rights advocates who believe a person is born homosexual consider the passing of the bill a landmark victory.

Democrat Richardo Lara, an openly gay legislator, believes that “sissy boys” should be protected from such intervention.

“One of our number one priorities in this house is to protect the next generation of Californians,” said the legislator in a speech prior to the vote.

“And some of those are sissy boys. And some of those sissy boys grow up to be Assembly members. And some of those sissy boys need help. And we are here to stand with those sissy boys.”

John Perez, an openly gay speaker of California’s lower house, called the therapy a “dehumanizing activity.”

Those who voted against the bill believe that the bill imposes on personal liberty. They say that each individual should get to choose whether or not they get the therapy.

Abortion Survivor Attacks Obama

Pro-life advocates The Susan B. Anthony List are ready to begin a TV ad campaign that criticizes President Barack Obama’s stance on abortion. The first ad features Melissa Ohden, a woman who was born alive despite an attempt to abort her.

“Many children, more than you might think, actually survive failed abortions and are born alive. I know because I’m one of them,” says Ohden in the ad.

“When he was in the Illinois state Senate, Barack Obama voted to deny basic constitutional protections for babies born alive from an abortion — not once, but four times. Is this the kind of leadership that will move us forward, that will discard the weakest among us?” she asks.

As a Senator, Obama spoke against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Obama thought it would be OK to let infants die if they survived an abortion. Read more of the details here, here, here and here.

In 2001, Obama said:

Whenever we define a pre-viable fetus as a person that is protected by the Equal Protection Clause or other elements of the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a — a child, a 9-month-old — child that was delivered to term.

That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it – it would essentially bar abortions, because the Equal Protection Clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute. For that purpose, I think it would probably be found unconstitutional.


‘Tolerant’ Liberals Tweet Hateful Messages

Hurricane Isaac interfered with the Republican National Convention and resulted in a storm of tweets from liberals. Entertainers from “tolerant” Hollywood unleashed hateful messages aimed at those in Tampa, Fla., the site of the RNC.

Actress Ellen Barkin retweeted a message from one of her followers saying: “C’mon #Isaac! Wash every pro-life, anti-education, anti-woman, xenophobic, gay-bashing, racist SOB right into the ocean! #RNC.”

Samuel L. Jackson also got in on the action, tweeting that it was unfair that Hurricane Isaac missed the Republican convention, saying he didn’t understand God’s plan. Later, he apologized to God, Tampa, the GOP and Hurricane Isaac.

Cher did her own bashing, tweeting that it would be suiting if Representative Todd Akin got raped by a man with AIDS.

“…let Aiken get raped by man with HIV/AIDS.Nothing will happen, right?Body shuts down as defense mechanism Idiots,” she tweeted.

Obama Sneezes, Blames Republicans

President Barack Obama has become notorious for playing the blame game. Whatever goes wrong, it’s somebody else’s fault. Now, one more thing can be added to the list: sneezing.

In a recent stop in Colorado, Obama had a tickly nose while defending his healthcare plan. You could tell that the President was trying to hold off sneezing. But eventually, he let it go.

After the sneeze, Obama said: “See, it gives me a cold just thinking about what they might do.”

DNC Makes Plans For Islamic Prayer

The Democratic National Convention will be supporting an Islamic Jumah prayer, a prayer said by Muslims on Fridays. The event is “intended to address the concerns and issues that are challenging to the American Muslim citizens in the 21st century.”

The plan to proceed with the event comes as a shock to some, given that the Democratic Party did not respond to a Catholic bishop’s request to pray at the DNC.

As many as 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend as a way to show their concerns in regard to Muslim rights in the United States. Topics of interest include the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act.

“Thousands of Muslims are going to perform the Friday ritual prayer,” said Jibril Hough, a local Muslim activist. “We hope our people will leave feeling rewarded about who they are and what their issues are and have a candidate checklist.”

But not all Muslims are supporting the event. Zuhdi Jasser, the president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, has voiced concern:

It is troubling that the Democratic National Convention has decided to promote and lend its name and national political platform to the organizers of the “Jummah at the DNC”. The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as advertised are no moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.

A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims.  Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.

If that is who the DNC is consorting with then all Americans, Democrats should be concerned. There are many patriotic Muslims who are part of both parties, and when radical ideologues like this do a demonstration of “solidarity” in the name of our faith and choose an imam like Siraj Wahhaj who I saw with my own eyes in 1995 seditiously say it his duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the US Constitution with the Quran- then we need to speak up!


Update 8-31: According to a press release issued Tuesday, Timothy Cardinal Dolan will be leading a closing prayer at the DNC.

‘2016: Obama’s America’ Receives Negative Review From AP

The anti-Barack Obama film “2016: Obama’s America” has been a hit at the box office. It raked in more than $6.2 million, made the top 10 and appeared in 1,091 theaters. But not everyone appreciates the documentary. The Associate Press recently gave the movie a negative review.

The movie is based on the book The Roots of Obama’s Rage, written by Dinesh D’Souza. In “2016: Obama’s America,” D’Souza travels to Kenya and attempts to uncover the roots of the President’s political ideology.

An AP article called D’Souza’s efforts “entirely subjective and a logical stretch at best,” and said that, in regard to certain matters, there is “no evidence.” Furthermore, writer Beth Fouhy believes that D’Souza’s claims “don’t hold water.”

Fouhy writes: “It’s difficult to see how Obama’s political leanings could have been so directly shaped by his father.”

Joel Gilbert has tried to explain the conundrum in his film, “Dreams from My Real Father.”

More Than Half Of Obama’s Twitter Followers Don’t Exist

President Barack Obama has about 19 million people following him on Twitter. But reports suggest that as many as 70 percent of them may not even exist.

In a time when legitimacy is established by the number of one’s Twitter followers, it has become commonplace to purchase followers, reports The New York Times.

“And it’s not just ego-driven blogger types,” wrote Austin Considine. “Celebrities, politicians, start-ups, aspiring rock stars, reality show hopefuls — anyone who might benefit from having a larger social media footprint — are known to have bought large blocks of Twitter followers.”

At, you can purchase Twitter followers by the thousands. In many cases, the accounts are inactive or created by spammers.

The practice has become so common that it is now easy to determine how many fake followers a person has.

Mitt Romney has also been accused of having fake followers. In July, 100,000 new people began following Romney over the course of one weekend.

Both campaigns have denied buying fake followers.

Another Anti-Obama Movie Set To Be Released

Following the success of “2016: Obama’s America,” another anti-Barack Obama film will soon be released. Produced by Citizens United, “The Hope And the Change” documents the worsening situation of 40 Americans who voted for Obama in 2008.

The film will premiere at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.

David Bossie, the group’s president, said Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 911” served as an inspiration.

Michael Moore made a film attacking George Bush, and he didn’t let the facts get in the way of a good storyline,” said Bossie. “What we did was want to be able to do the same thing. That’s what the Citizens United case emanated from. .. And that’s why in 2008 I went to the United States Supreme Court to fight for my right, and it took me many years.  And in 2010 we finally won our victory.”

In September, “The Hope And the Change,” will be in select theaters across the United States, and it might air on a cable channel regularly until Election Day.

“This is the first election cycle that we are now legally able to make a political documentary and show it and its ads on television,” Bossie said. “And we’re really excited about that.”


Obama Campaign Draws Support From Shady Characters

If the Democratic Party endorses the views of its supporters, then Vice President Joe Biden must think rape is a laughing matter and President Barack Obama must think it’s OK to shoot those who interfere with a back-alley drug deal. The Nation’s top leaders recently made appearances with Senator Al Franken and NBA star Carmello Anthony.

Last week, Biden shared the stage with Franken, a former “Saturday Night Live” writer who joked about raping a reporter.

“I give pills to Lesley Stahl. Then, when Lesley’s passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her,” joked Franken, as reported by New York magazine in 1995. “When she passes out, I put her in various positions and take pictures of her.”

Anthony appeared at the “Obama Classic,” a fundraising event attended by some of the biggest names in basketball. In 2004, Anthony was seen in a DVD titled “Stop Snitchin” alongside drug dealers who threatened that anyone who interfered with their enterprise would “get a hole in his head.”

Chicago Values: 13 Shot In 30 Minutes

On July 25, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel said, “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values.” On Aug. 12, President Barack Obama said, “Chicago is an example of what makes this country great.” On Aug. 24, 13 people were shot in the Windy City over the course of 30 minutes.

In total, 19 people were shot from late Thursday through early Friday morning.

Four men were shot in the Little Village neighborhood about 5:20 p.m.

About 9:30 p.m., eight were shot at 79th Street and Essex Avenue.

Two were shot on East 37th Street at about 9:25 p.m. About the same time, there was a drive-by shooting on West 39th Place.

At about 9:40 p.m., one man was shot on South Jeffrey Boulevard.

Early Friday, a teen was shot on South Vincennes Avenue.

At 1:30 a.m., another teen was shot on West Grenshaw Street.

Since 2001, more than 2,000 troops have been killed in Afghanistan. In the same amount of time, more than 5,000 people in Chicago have died from a gunshot wound.

California Moms Sue School District Over Teaching On Abstinence

Two mothers in California are suing the Clovis United School District over an abstinence-only sex education program. They say the students need information on condoms and sexually transmitted diseases.

The California District of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Gay-Straight Alliance Network have joined the moms in the suit. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is representing those involved in the case.

In 2003, a law was passed in California requiring that public schools thoroughly discuss sexual behavior in a medically accurate way.

According to the lawsuit, the school district is teaching that students should wait until marriage before engaging in sexual activity. In light of the 2003 law, this is unacceptable in the eyes of the suing mothers, Aubree Smith and Mica Ghimenti.

“Our kids need complete, accurate information to help them protect themselves against STDs and unintended pregnancy,” said Smith.

“Our children need to know more about sex education than abstinence-only,” Ghimenti added.

The school district emailed this statement to NBC News:

It appears from an initial review that the concern raised in this lawsuit stems from a question of differing interpretations of the depth and breadth of a school district’s obligation to cover detailed sexual content in its family life-sex education materials. …We will continue our review of the suit in order to better understand the concerns raised by the plaintiffs, but Clovis Unified has fully complied with both the California Education Code and the State’s content standards.

Obama Probably Needed A Good Teacher

At a recent campaign stop in Nevada, a heckler interrupted President Barack Obama. The President responded: “That young man probably needed a good teacher.” But the response is quite ironic given Obama’s slipups.

The most recent slipup is his misspelling of “Ohio.” In a photo reminiscent of a drunken tailgate party, Obama and three supporters spelled the Buckeye State “O-I-H-O.”



They later corrected the flub.



It’s not the first time the Commander in Chief has lost command of the English language.

While appearing on ESPN to discuss his picks for the NCAA basketball tournament, Obama misspelled “Syracuse.”



Allegedly, the President sent a letter to a citizen and thanked him for his “advise,” instead of “advice.”

The White House sent out invitations to an event to be held at “Congregation Keneseth Isreal” (should be “Israel”) and in 2011 misspelled “Libya.”

The first lady had her own fumble on Wednesday, telling voters to get out and vote on Nov. 2. The election is Nov. 6.
