Comments Off on President Obama almost adopted by the Salvation Army?

Hmmm. A previously redacted immigration document obtained via a FOIA by author Sally Jacobs states that the President’s parents were planning on having their unborn child adopted by the Salvation Army: A few months before Mr Obama was born, Barack Obama Snr, the future president’s father, was under scrutiny from immigration officials who suspected him of bigamy.

It will be if a couple of new movements have their way. Southern Arizona, traditionally much more liberal than the Phoenix area, is the site for a new movement of folks who wish to form a new state called “Baja Arizona.”  Pima County the 51st state?

Comments Off on Mexico asks Texas to lighten up on those nasty border travel warnings

Laughable. Mexico is asking Texas to let up on those pesky travel alerts which make their country look so dangerous that it ends up discouraging American visitors from going south and spending their dollars.  In a nutshell, it seems Mexico wants Texas to stop speaking truth to power:  Mexico is asking Texas authorities to tone down […]
