GOPUSA – A poll in the Washington Post has found that nine out of 10 Native Americans are not offended by the Washington Redskins name.
The poll surveyed 504 people who identified as Native American in every state in the US, and reflects the findings of a similar poll in 2004. Washington’s NFL team has been under pressure for some time over its name, which many say is offensive. The survey also asked respondents whether the word “Redskin” itself is disrespectful: 21% said it is.
Washington’s owner, Dan Snyder, has long resisted calls to change the team’s name, and said the poll backed up his stance.
“The Washington Redskins team, our fans and community have always believed our name represents honor, respect and pride,” said Snyder in a statement. “Today’s Washington Post polling shows Native Americans agree. We are gratified by this overwhelming support from the Native American community, and the team will proudly carry the Redskins name.”
NewsMax – Donald Trump will meet Monday with Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, whom key Republicans consider a possible running mate for the presumptive nominee.
The pair is scheduled to meet at Trump Tower in New York City, The Washington Post reports, citing sources who asked not to be named.
Corker, 63, is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He is the former mayor of Chattanooga and was first elected to Congress in 2006.
He has had a key role in many foreign policy issues involving the Obama administration, including the Iran nuclear deal.

Sons of Liberty – Target stocks plunged $2.5 Billion in just 10 days once word got out about the company’s pandering to less than half a percent of the population, which would open up bathrooms to those of the opposite gender. The stocks continue to fall and are at almost a $20 loss per share, but that isn’t stopping the retail company from suing one of their own customers who saved another shopper from a stabbing attack.
Breitbart reported on a 2013 event in which Michael Turner grabbed a baseball bat and used it to chase of an attacker and save the life of a young woman who was being attacked in a Target store. Instead of offering praise or award for Mr. Turner, the store has chosen instead to sue him for endangering other customers in the store with the bat. No, this is not satire.
Sons of Liberty – Listen to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, saying she can “guarantee” that Donald Trump will not defeat Hillary Clinton to become president of the United States. No one wants to believe that absolutely every single solitary word that comes out of a politician’s mouth is part of a larger conspiracy, or some nefarious plot, because after all, these are the people running our country, and despite all its flaws most of us love America.
Let’s face it, It’s painful to think the people tasked with doing the will of the people could possibly hate those they represent THAT much, but at the same time, the road from “conspiracy theory” to “established fact” is often a short one these days, so one would be wise to look at all possibilities. With that said, Queen Nancy makes some extremely alarming comments in the following interview that should have every conspiracy theorist’s “Bat Phone” going crazy.
NewsMax – Texas’ lieutenant governor said Friday that the state is prepared to forfeit billions of federal dollars in public school funding in defiance of an Obama administration directive requiring schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their chosen gender identity.
The new directive is expected to worsen tensions between Republican-led statehouses and the federal government over divisive social issues. It clarifies expectations for districts receiving federal school funds, which Texas’ powerful Republican lieutenant governor argues the state’s 5.2 million public school students can now do without.
“We will not be blackmailed by the president’s 30 pieces of silver,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said. “The people of Texas and the Legislature will find a way to find as much of that money as we can if we are forced to.”
Sons of Liberty – You may not believe the incredible things that one member of Congress is saying about the corruption of our political system and the gullibility of the American people. In a brand new book entitled “The Confessions of Congressman X“, one anonymous member of the U.S. House of Representatives confesses that he hardly ever reads the bills that he votes on, that his main job is to get reelected, and that it is “far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant gratification”.

Sons of Liberty –
If there is any doubt in any American’s mind that Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Soebarkah believes himself to be the Dictator of the United States, the latest and most egregious “decree” to every public school system in America should remove all doubt. This administration is sending a letter to every public school district in the nation–a letter proclaiming that schools are required to allow students to use whichever restroom corresponds to their perceived “gender identity” or face a federal lawsuit and with-holding of federal money. The letter, sent jointly by the Department of [Un]Education and the Department of [In]Justice, went out on Friday, ordering by executive decree the change and not any law, rule, or pseudo-law in the form of regulations.

Blake Gaston, 23, killed while riding his motorcycle in Seattle. He played the piano, guitar, drums, wrote music, and developed websites.
Elizabeth Kemble, 46, was killed by a car while walking across the street in Portland, Ore. She previously survived three kidney transplants, and dedicated her life to helping dialysis patients and hungry seniors.
Debra Majkut, 34, mother of two, killed while sitting on her couch with three children when a car smashed into her house.
And the list goes on and on.
The Daily Signal – A group of students at the University of North Carolina are fighting back against the Obama administration’s civil rights lawsuit against the state this week by filing a lawsuit of their own, alleging that the federal government is forcing them to choose between their educational pursuits and personal privacy.
“Our clients, the students, are between the proverbial rock and a hard place,” Jeremy Tedesco, an attorney for Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the students in their case, told The Daily Signal. “They could lose their funding, they could have neutral restrooms and locker rooms—there’s really only two ways this could go and both of them violate their rights.”
NewsMax -The matter of allowing transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identities should be decided on the state level, not by the White House, Donald Trump said Friday.
“I’d leave that up to the states,”Trump said on NBC’s “Today” show. “That and other things, frankly. Let the states decide. It’s much better as a local issue. I don’t think it is a federal issue, where the federal government gets involved.”
Trump said he believes “everybody has to be protected,” but when it comes to transgender students, “you’re talking about a tiny, tiny group of the population. With that being said, everybody has to be protected. I would leave it up to the states.”

Center for Vision and Values-With the death of Justice Antonin Scalia the Supreme Court is left with one chief justice and seven associate justices. President Obama has nominated Merrick B. Garland, chief judge of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, who was a Clinton appointee and clerked under liberal Supreme Court Justice William Brennan. Even before the nomination, the vacancy produced urgent calls for a replacement to be nominated based on claims that an eight-person court would not be “fully functioning,” would “hamstring the judiciary,” and would amount to “partisan understaffing.” With Obama’s nomination of Garland, the clamor for immediate action will increase.
But is an eight-person Supreme Court really unworkable for the period between now and early 2017 when a newly-elected president will offer a replacement?
First, some history. Article III of the Constitution says that judicial power shall be vested in one Supreme Court and such other inferior courts as Congress shall ordain. It always came as a surprise to my Constitutional students that the size of the Supreme Court is not set at nine by the Constitution. In fact, the first Court was six-members —the chief justice and five associate justices. Between then and 1869, the Court was sometimes seven, sometimes 10, and sometimes nine. But the Judiciary Act of 1869 finally fixed the number at nine—one chief and eight associates. It has not changed since, with the best-known attempt at increasing its size being FDR’s unsuccessful “court packing” scheme in 1937.
