See How Liberals Just Used The Race Card To Try And Silence Ted Nugent

Ted Nugent on obesity

Ticketholders expecting a raucous Ted Nugent performance at an Idaho casino just learned the show has been canceled due to the rock legend and outspoken conservative’s alleged racist tendencies.

Without providing a single example to back up its claim, the Coeur d’Alene Native American tribe announced the Aug. 4 concert has been cancelled.

As for an explanation to fans looking forward to the event, casino owners only suggested that he has “racist attitudes and views.”

Though Nugent has not publicly commented on the decision as of this writing, his supporters took to Twitter to express their dismay.

Many expressed the view that Nugent, although often blunt in sharing his views, is far from a racist. In fact, several Twitter users pointed out that the star has long been an advocate of Native American causes.

The far-left Daily Kos called on hosts of other upcoming Nugent shows to follow suit in an article that included a statement by the tribe announcing its decision.

“The Coeur d’Alene Tribe has always been about human rights – for decades, we have worked individually and as a Tribe to make sure that each and every person is treated equally and with respect and dignity,” the statement indicated. 

Indicating his allegedly racist remarks were revealed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the tribe chose not to cite any examples of the behavior they felt warranted a cancellation of his concert.

A number of social media responses picked up on the hypocrisy of calling off Nugent’s show while legitimately intolerant performers continue to perform unabated.

While plenty of Nugent’s detractors applauded the decision to cancel the show, his supporters seem to agree that the minor setback will have little to no effect on his appeal or his ability to draw crowds across the nation.

What Ben Carson Just Said Will Have Conservatives Jumping For Joy

Dr. Ben Carson

While the majority of presidential contenders have a clear professional trajectory culminating in a run for the highest office in the nation, some are thrust into the political fray by a sense of duty or in response to undeniable public demand.

Celebrated neurosurgeon Ben Carson apparently belongs in the latter group. Following his retirement, Carson has earned widespread support from conservatives drawn to his soft-spoken, principled embrace of traditional American values.

A grassroots effort to compel him to seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 has grown exponentially as his supporters donate both time and money to the cause. The hard work has not gone unnoticed by Carson.

“I certainly didn’t give it much thought early on,” he said of a potential White House run.

Judging from the growing number of people who are “so enthusiastic” about the possibility, however, he noted that he has become more receptive to exploring the proposition.

“So I am starting to think about it,” he confirmed. “But it certainly wasn’t on my bucket list when I retired.”

In an email to supporters, organizer John Philip Sousa IV indicated that the push to draft Carson as a candidate hit a major milestone in recent weeks.

Thanks to the support of about 300,000 supporters, he indicated that a super PAC, that National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee, raised $7 million in time for a filing deadline with the Federal Elections Commission.

He also scored a big victory among conservatives at the recent Western Conservative Summit. He won that event’s straw poll by a significant margin, garnering 22 percent of the vote. His nearest competitors in that poll were Sen. Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin, who received 13 and 12 percent, respectively.

Watch: Raw Video Of A Forgotten Veteran Locked Inside Florida VA Clinic

JeffreyDuckvid

A Marine veteran says he was locked inside the Orange City, Florida Veterans Administration community clinic on Monday by mistake.  Jeff Duck was a “walk-in” patient who sat waiting in a consultation room for more than three hours before realizing that the staff had left the building for the day and that he was the only one there.  “I was apparently left there and forgotten,” said the Deltona, Florida resident.

Duck was worried that he would be accused of burglary, so he called 9-1-1 to notify the police.  He told the operator, “I apparently got left in a VA facility, a medical facility, and the alarm has been going off.”  The operator asked him, “So, you’re inside and there’s no employees?”  Duck said, “None that I can see.”

The Veterans Administration issued an apology to Duck, saying:

“We want to apologize to Mr. Duck for his experience yesterday at the Orange City VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic.  We are looking at our closing procedures and will make changes to ensure that this does not happen again.”

Although Duck said he was “kind of disappointed,” he said he’s not angry.

“There’s a lot going on with the VA right now, they’re all over the news. Everybody knows what’s going on with them.”

Duck hopes that his experience will help the VA find solutions to other problem areas within the VA’s medical operations.  “There’s a lot of people with bigger problems than me,” he said.

Exposed: The REAL Reason MH17 Was Shot Down?

REAL

Within hours, the entirety of the mainstream media—both liberal and conservative—were singing the same tune; and anyone who questioned the narrative was a conspiracy theorist in bed with the enemy.

Somehow, without any formal investigation, the mainstream media knew who had shot down MH17 on July 17, 2014: that it was Russian-backed Ukrainian separatists—with Vladimir Putin actually pushing the bottom.

This narrative has evolved into a “mistake” by a Ukrainian army defector being responsible with no involvement from Russia. Regardless, the question remains: why, like 9/11, did the mainstream media so quickly have all the answers? The answer may surprise you. This video exposes the real reason MH17 was shot down and why the mainstream media may have peddled the unsubstantiated claims so quickly.

A Massive Victory For Gun Owners Just Made This City Empty Its Pockets

More than 3,000 Philadelphians took their city to court as part of a class action lawsuit alleging that their personal information was either publicized online or could have been made public through flaws in the city’s system.

According to court records, each defendant affected had his or her name, address, and the reason for obtaining a gun permit posted to a website for four days in the summer of 2012. The information was included as part of a map detailing which individuals in the city sought a permit from the Department of Licenses and Inspections.

“Some people listed ‘I carry large sums of money at night’ as part of their appeal and that wound up online,” explained attorney Benjamin Picker. “This is obviously a public safety issue.”

The city agreed to pay a total of $1.425 million to the 3,265 plaintiffs in the case. Some may consider the agreement a pyrrhic victory, however, as those who suffered the greatest privacy breach will walk away with a maximum of $450. More than 1,000 involved will receive a check for $25.

Beyond the financial aspect, however, the city did agree to some policy changes in its handling of gun permits. Applicants can now be assured that their personal information will not be made public, and they will no longer be required to provide the department references prior to the appeals process.

Furthermore, anyone denied a permit will receive a refund of the application fee.

The office of Mayor Michael Nutter issued a statement explaining that Philadelphia admits no wrongdoing in accepting the settlement.

“The City could have faced a financial exposure of many millions more than the actual settlement,” spokesperson Mark McDonald asserted.

While Picker contended that plaintiffs deserved restitution for the incident, he acknowledged that Philadelphia likely had no intention to harm its citizens.

“They probably didn’t realize that it was against the law to put this information out there,” he said.

According to reports, the data was scrubbed from the site as soon as local police were made aware of its publication.
