Lesbian Couple Charged After Allegedly Faking Hate Crime

Back in October, a lesbian couple in Colorado called the police after they allegedly found the words “Kill the Gay” scrawled in red across their garage, and a noose hanging from their front door.

When asked, the couple told officers they believed that the hateful acts were retaliation from their neighbors and the homeowner’s association, who were allegedly upset that the couple did not pick up after their dogs.

However, they refused to “submit to hate” and posted these signs on their garage.

Perhaps the women didn’t anticipate how seriously the issue would be treated, because nearly eight months later, with the full force of the FBI involved, authorities are saying the women themselves may have been responsible for the acts. They have been charged with both criminal mischief and false reporting, and one of the women, Aimee Whitchurch, faces an additional charge of forgery.

Fox 31 reported on the matter, saying the couple declined to take a lie detector test, but maintain their innocence.

“It’s a betrayal. This is a government that’s supposed to protect us. People came out and pretended they were interested in what’s going on,” Whitchurch declared. “This is a fight I’m right on…I have every right to live where I want to live.”

Dems Disenfranchise Voters After Polls Show Obama in Close Primary Race

After a poll released this week showed President Barack Obama only beating his Democratic primary opponent John Wolfe Jr. by seven points, 45 percent to 38 percent, in Arkansas’s Fourth Congressional District, state Democrats moved to practically disenfranchise Arkansas voters. “[D]elegates Wolfe might claim won’t be recognized at the national convention,” national party officials are telling state Democrats. Wolfe is being accused of not following the party rules.

“They want a coronation,” Wolfe tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD. “They’re conflating [Obama] with the party. Are we supposed to call him ‘Dear Leader’? Is this some kind of North Korea thing?”

Wolfe insists he’s done the due diligence to qualify for delegates and that the state party is making decisions ad hoc to get the results they desire. “This is ridiculous,” he says. “These guys are trying to tamp down voter enthusiasm.”

Sean Penn(Liberal Idiot): ‘Pay the f*** up!’

It was the most lavish party in Cannes, with tickets going for a whopping $7,500 a pop.

But Sean Penn didn’t let the prestigious tone of the Haiti: Carnival In Cannes gala stop him from turning the air blue with some carefully chosen words during a speech on behalf of his Haitian Relief Organisation.

The actor stunned guests including Ewan McGregor, Gerard Butler, Diane Kruger and Jessica Chastain with his expletive-ridden speech, which he confessed was made ‘under the influence of vodka.’

Penn, 51, made a rambling delivery, jokingly questioning why some of the A-list guests were at the charity gala’when you have people to f***’ at other parties.

He then praised fellow Haiti fund raiser Paul Haggis, ‘even though he was a Canadian whose parents included a man, a woman and a tree.’

He added: ‘F*** ‘em if people say you’re just writing a cheque, but you’re making a change’.

Parents Will Be Given Government Advice On Parenting Because They Know Better

David Cameron said it was “ludicrous” that parents received more training in how to drive a car than in how to raise children.

A £3.4million digital information service, which begins today, will provide free email alerts and text messages with NHS advice “on everything from teething to tantrums”, Mr Cameron said.

Separate pilot schemes will offer couples with young children free parenting classes and subsidised relationship counselling to help cope with “tiredness” and “mess”.

As part of a series of “family friendly” initiatives unveiled this week, the Prime Minister yesterday gave his strongest signal yet that tax breaks may be offered to families who hire nannies or childminders.

Speaking at a business event in Manchester, he said he was “hugely attracted to the idea of making child care tax allowable”.

Mr Cameron, who has been stung by criticism that his policies have alienated women voters, said that the plan for parenting classes was not a manifestation of the “nanny state” and sought to pre-empt criticism that the Government should be focusing on the economy, by declaring that parents “shape” society.

“These are the big, gritty issues,” he said.

An influential study found that 85 per cent of new parents wanted more practical help on how to care for their babies, he added.

A vast array of websites provide often conflicting advice on parenting, which ministers believe can result in “information overload”.

The new Information Service for Parents will offer NHS-approved guidance on what food is safe to eat during pregnancy, how to make homes safe for babies and toddlers, and nappy changing.

Videos, which can be accessed on smart phones and tablet computers, include help with relaxation techniques and messages from young fathers encouraging other men to attend the birth of their children.

The digital information service, which has been nicknamed “digital baby” in Whitehall, will also send tailored information to parents at different stages during pregnancy and their baby’s early childhood.

Seven women protest Rush for NOW’s big day of protest

Seven women participated in the National Organization for Women’s day of protest against Rush Limbaugh in front of Limbaugh’s D.C. affiliate WMAL, Friday.

NOW’s national protest day had been in the works since April 19, when the women’s advocacy group launched their “Enough Rush” campaign.

Pairing with media watchdog Media Matters for America NOW is targeting local affiliates and local advertisers, Friday’s demonstration was touted as the group’s big demonstration of opposition to Limbaugh with affiliates across the country participating in protests.

NOW has had Limbaugh in their crosshairs for nearly two decades, and they renewed their effort to get Limbaugh off the air as a response to the radio host’slate February insult of contraception activist Sandra Fluke.

Standing on a street corner in front of WMAL the seven women bearing signs such as “Enough Rush” and “Stop hate speech” received some honks and smiles.

Erin Matson, NOW action vice president explained to The Daily Caller that Limbaugh crossed the line with his comments about Fluke and that he needs to go.

“Rush captured a new generation of women’s attention when he went on a long sexist tirade against Sandra Fluke for daring to speak up for birth control access,” Matson explained, recalling Limbaugh’s characterization of Fluke as a “slut” and a prostitute.

According to Matson, the community is on NOW’s side, adding that “it is a smart business decision” for affiliates and advertisers to leave Rush.

“Women are the majority of consumers in this country and we influence or make over 80 percent of the consumer decisions,” she said, adding that Limbaugh has already lost a number of advertisers over his Fluke comments.

Still TheDC overheard pedestrian conversations scoffing at the fact NOW is still on Limbaugh’s case, over two months after his Fluke comments.

Last week Limbaugh launched a response to NOW’s campaign against him in the form of a Facebook group for his female listeners, “Rush Babes for America aka the National Organization for Rush Babes,” to show not all women adhere the NOW agenda. His Facebook group surpassed NOW’s Facebook “likes” in under 24 hours.

Matson shrugged off the women who have joined the “Rush Babe” Facebook group explaining that it is just an attempt by Rush to feed his ego.

Bigoted anti-bigots: How the gay-marriage mob slimed Manny Pacquiao

Boxing champion Manny Pacquiao is guilty — of being true to his Catholic faith. The gay-marriage mob is guilty — of the very ugly bigotry it claims to abhor. And left-wing media outlets are guilty — of stoking false narratives that shamelessly demonize religion in the name of compassion.

The attempted crucifixion of Pacquiao this week was fueled by an online army of cultural shakedown artists, generously funded by billionaire George Soros and other so-called progressive philanthropists.

On Tuesday, a freelance writer for the Examiner.com published an interview with Pacquiao conducted at his Los Angeles residence. Journalist Granville Ampong asked the pugilist his views on gay marriage in light of President Obama’s flip-flop-flip on the issue. “God’s words first,” Pacquiao said. “Obey God’s law first before considering the laws of man.”

After suggesting that Obama should consult the Bible as his “manual for life,” Pacquiao added in earnest: “It should not be of the same sex so as to adulterate the altar of matrimony, like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah of Old.”

The interview then included a scriptural reference to Leviticus 20:13, which states: “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”

Publications including USA Today, LA Weekly and Village Voice all ran outraged pieces on Pacquiao’s “homophobic” calls for violence.

But it was the interviewer, not Pacquiao, who made the citation. Ampong demanded apologies on behalf of Pacquiao. Feckless professional journalists blamed Ampong for their own biased reading and then grudgingly “clarified” the truth in buried updates.

“I didn’t say that, that’s a lie,” Pacquiao told anyone who would listen on his website. “I didn’t know that quote from Leviticus because I haven’t read the Book of Leviticus yet.” Too late. The politically correct bloodhounds were in full hunting mode.

The Courage Campaign, a community-organizing outfit that claims to have 750,000 members and is funded by the radical Tides Foundation, immediately called on Pacquiao-sponsor Nike to drop him over his “hate speech against gays.” The group took to Twitter to demand that the athletic shoe company “Drop Manny,” the “homophobic boxer.” The call was amplified by Think Progress, an online character assassination squad backed by George Soros.

L.A. bigwig developer Rick Caruso, who has mayoral aspirations, squeezed himself into the Catholic-bashing clown car. He announced on Twitter that Pacquiao would be banned from his trendy shopping complex, The Grove. The mall, Caruso wrote, “is a gathering place for all Angelenos, not a place for intolerance.”

Except for intolerance of completely mainstream views on gay marriage held by millions of practicing people of faith.

One-Percenter Sarah Jessica Parker Fights Class War, Plans Obama Fundraiser

On the big and small screen, Sarah Jessica Parker epitomizes the one percent as “Sex and the City’s” Carrie Bradshaw.

Appletinis. Manohlo Blahnik shoes. The works.

In real life, the actress is willing and able to amplify President Barack Obama’s class warfare rhetoric.

Parker will be hosting an Obama fundraiser next month, and she recently sent out an email to promote the event and help re-elect Obama come November.

This November’s election will determine whether we get to keep moving forward, or if we’re forced to go back to policies that ask people like my middle-class family in Ohio to carry the burden — while people like me, who don’t need tax breaks, get extra help.

Romney following McCain’s losing strategy

The political gurus who advised Mitt Romney to condemn a plan by a “super PAC” to use Barack Obama’s influential relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright against him in the 2012 campaign will lead the presumed Republican nominee to the same fate as John McCain four years ago, said talk-radio host Michael Savage.

“Romney’s finished,” Savage told his “Savage Nation” audience yesterday. “He’s a fall guy. I’m the only one in the media who told you.”

Savage said Romney was “being misdirected by the very same people who misdirected McCain – who should have won the last election.”

“McCain said, ‘No, I won’t go there, I won’t do that,’ and lost the election.”

Republicans in 2008 naturally voted for McCain, Savage explained, but the independents who decided the election “did not come out for him, because he was nothing but a two-faced RINO,” a Republican In Name Only.

“I can only conclude Romney doesn’t even understand what he’s doing, or Romney is a straight-out fall guy for the Republican establishment, offered a huge payout at the end of the term in the form of contracts, books, lecture tours or whatever,” Savage said.

In an interview with Townhall.com, Romney said, “I repudiate the effort by that PAC to promote an ad strategy of the nature they’ve described.”

Romney said he wants his campaign to “focus on the economy, on getting people back to work, on seeing rising incomes and growing prosperity – particularly for those in the middle class of America.”

McCain told Fox News four years ago that he didn’t believe Obama should be held accountable for the things that Wright said from the pulpit.

But Obama once counted Wright as his chief spiritual adviser, the man who led him to Christian faith, married him and his wife and baptized his family. Obama, who attended Wright’s church for two decades, insisted he never heard the pastor spew the anti-American, anti-white venom now well-known through video clips of sermons played on news shows and posted on the Internet during the 2008 campaign.

But Wright’s adherence to the Marxist-based Black Liberation Theology that animates his preaching is well documented, and it’s implausible that the published clips were anomalies.
