Ironic that race-baiter Rev. Al ‘The Cameleon’ Sharpton can, in the light of day, stand so firmly and unequivocally for one thing, then surreptitiously slink into the shadows to support positions substantially at odds with those he claims publicly.
While most would call it ‘hypocrisy,’ Al would call it ‘good politics.’
Is this Liberal Activist the Best Con Man of All-Time?
When you think of someone who best fits the description of “con man,” a few names probably come to find.
Maybe Charles Ponzi, the Italian immigrant who almost 100 years ago attracted new investors to pay off his existing ones, instead of using profits from legitimate investments. More recent examples include stock market shyster Bernie Madoff and infomerical king Kevin Trudeau.
But believe it or not, recent revelations about the past dealings of a New York political activist may trump all of these previous “Kings of Con.”
FBI records obtained by The Smoking Gun revealed that the “Reverend” Al Sharpton was a confidential informant for the government. He lived a double life and gained the confidence of the most notorious criminals in New York and around the world.

I suppose it could have been worse: The Nobel committee could have awarded the prize to Snowden himself rather than just to his advocates, the Washington Post and the Guardian.
A Pitiful Pulitzer Pick
The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done untold damage to American intelligence gathering efforts against Russia, China, Al Qaeda, and other essential targets by revealing some of the most secret information that the U.S. government possesses. As Politico notes, this prize is “certain to be interpreted as a vindication of the former government contractor’s efforts.”

…why pope Francis is so popular.
The Democrat play book relies on 1) the short attention span of the American public and 2) the complicity of the leftist media to obfuscate important issues like Benghazi that should be forefront in voters’ minds when elections roll around.
Don’t let them get away with it.
God Bless those many Americans who work tirelessly to remind us what really matters.
Benghazi victim’s mother among anti-Clinton protesters
In her remarks to the crowd, [ Pat] Smith also condemned any calls for Clinton to run for the 2016 presidency.
“Hillary cannot be president,” she said. “Anybody but Hillary. She lied to me to my face.”

The Palestinian Authority (and much of the Middle East) relies on its people’s hatred of Israel in order to manipulate and control them. That is why the PA continually fans that hatred and why brokered peace talks will never succeed.
In 2000, Arafat was offered virtually everything he negotiated for, and still he turned it down.
Without the Jews to kick around, the PA would be out there all alone, responsible for the miserable human and economic conditions in the region.
The Predictable Failure of Kerry’s “Peace” Mission
Arafat, during the Camp David Summit in July, 2000, was given a golden opportunity to “end the conflict” with Israel, when Ehud Barak and President Bill Clinton offered him a Palestinian State on 97% of the West Bank and Gaza, and a capital in East Jerusalem, as well as additional territory to compensate for the 3% of land (Jewish settlements) slated to be annexed to Israel. Arafat understood that “an end of conflict” without “an end to Israel,” could cost him his life. He therefore chose to launch the Second Intifada.

Could Harry Reid’s reputation be any worse? Democrats will always find a way.
Nevada Bundy ranch standoff could leave dirt on Harry Reid reputation
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat.

Here is a heart-grabbing story of good and evil, side by side, as is often found in the wake of horrendous events.
The Toddler Who Survived, and the Cop Who Became Her Mom
It came to be known as the Palm Sunday Massacre, the largest mass shooting in the New York area in decades. Ten people were killed that day 30 years ago, including eight children. Only one survivor was found: a crying toddler covered in blood, crawling at the feet of the dead.
