North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) on Monday signed into law one of the nation’s most wide-ranging Voter ID laws.
The move is likely to touch off a major court battle over voting rights, and the Justice Department is weighing a challenge to the new law, which is the first to pass since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the Voting Rights Act.
The measure requires voters to present government-issued photo identification at the polls and shortens the early voting period from 17 to 10 days. It will also end pre-registration for 16- and 17-year-old voters who will be 18 on Election Day and eliminates read more
CNN and NBC have both announced programming promoting former Secretary Hillary Clinton ahead of her likely presidential campaign in 2016. These are clearly major networks’ thinly-veiled attempt at putting a thumb on the scales of the 2016 presidential election.
This is wrong, and the Republican National Committee will not stand for it. If both networks continue to move forward with these projects, Chairman Priebus is prepared to seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group, the American Future Fund, before recommending that the commission prosecute it for violations of campaign-finance law. Lerner, the former head of the IRS’s exempt-organizations division, worked at the FEC from 1986 to 1995, and was known for aggressive investigation of conservative groups during her tenure there, too. read more
American’s must speak up now. Speak truth against the internal powers of not just the Christie presidential campaign before they get started, but the inside the beltway DNC/ RNC elitists who think they “own” the USA. We have power, and we can move mountains with just the faith of a mustard seed. We don’t need a third party, we need to get alongside good people like Paul, Cruz, Gowdy, Bachmann and others who see America for what she has always been and overwhelm the The democrats and Republicans with candidates. If we don’t act America’s enemies will be picking at her lifeless carcass for whatever they can get, before this nation crumbles into a state of anarchy. Act now, start with Chris Christie, be heard.

New Jersey GOP governor said on Thursday at a Republican governors forum in Aspen, Colo:
“This strain of libertarianism that’s going through parties right now and making big headlines I think is a very dangerous thought,” You can name any number of people and (Paul is) one of them.”

Edgar Cayce predicted that there will be one more Pope after John Paul II who will serve a short term.
As we all know ,Pope announced his resignation yesterday . For those of you interested in stuff like this…read and be amazed! He is the first Pope to step down rather than die in the position in more than 600 years
In 1139 AD, a man named St. Malachy was given a prophetic vision. He saw all of the Catholic Popes that would come in the future. He wrote down a short description of each one. Throughout history, each one has been accurate. He foresaw 112 Popes until Jesus returned and that # 111 would see the beginning of the tribulation. The current Pope is # 111. We’ve had 111 since, and are on the verge of seeing No. 112, which Malachy says will be the final pope before the end of the world as we know it.
It gets more interesting.
Papal Prophecies – The End of Religion
Saint Malachy (1094 – November 2, 1148) was known as great prophet. While in Rome in 1139 he received a vision showing him all the Popes from his day to the end of time. According to these prophecies, only two Popes remaining after John Paul II.
St. Malachy was reported to have possessed the powers of levitation, healing, and clairvoyance. While on his way to the Vatican to assume the post of papal legate for Ireland, he fell into trance and saw a line of papal reigns stretching from the successor to Innocent II and extending through centuries to the last of the line, identified as Peter of Rome. Malachy assigned short descriptions in Latin to each pope when he committed his vision to paper. These mottoes usually refer to a family name, birthplace, coat-of-arms, or office held before election to the papacy. Some of the phrases are multiple prophecies, written with ingenious word play.
Through the centuries, his prophecies have turned out to be amazingly accurate, even prophesying the date of his death. In all, 112 popes and their characteristics are listed from 1143 to the alleged end of the world, or perhaps religion as we know it, when truth is inlay revealed about human creation and destiny.
Saint Malachy’s final words were: “Rome, the seat of the Vatican, will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people.”
Prophecy of the Popes is a list of 112 short phrases in Latin. They purport to describe each of the Roman Catholic popes (along with a few anti-popes), beginning with Pope Celestine II (elected in 1143) and concluding with a pope described in the prophecy as “Peter the Roman”, whose pontificate will end in the destruction of the city of Rome.
Malachy’s Prophecies – The Last 10 Popes
1. The Burning Fire. PIUS X. 1903-1914. This Pope showed a burning passion for spiritual renewal in the Church.
2. Religion Laid Waste. BENEDICT XV. 1914-1922. During this Pope’s reign saw Communism move into Russia where religious life was laid waste, and World War I with the death of millions of Christians who were carnage in Flanders Field and elsewhere.
3. Unshaken Faith. PIUS XI. 1922-1939. This Pope faced tremendous pressure from fascist and sinister powers in Germany and Italy, but he was an outspoken critic of Communism and Fascism which enraged Hitler.
4. An Angelic Shepherd. PIUS XII. 1939-1958. This Pope had an affinity for the spiritual world and received visions which have not been made public. Peter Bander says Pius XII “has emerged as one of the great Popes of all time,” and he “was in the truest sense of the word an Angelic Pastor to the flock…”
5. Pastor and Mariner. JOHN XXIII. 1958-1963. John was a pastor to the world, much beloved, and the Patriarch of Venice. The connection to “mariner” is thus remarkable.
6. Flower of Flowers. PAUL VI. 1963-1978. Paul’s coat-of-arms depicts three fleurs-de-lis, corresponding to Malachay’s prophecy. His coat of arms included three fleurs-de-lis (iris blossoms).
7. Of the Half Moon. JOHN PAUL I. 1978-1978. John Paul I was elected Pope on August 26, 1978, when there was a half moon. He reigned 33 days, that is, about one month, when he died, although many think he was murdered. He was the 109th Pope – is “De Medietate Lunae” (Of the Half Moon). The corresponding pope was John Paul I (1978-78), who was born in the diocese of Belluno (beautiful moon) and was baptized Albino Luciani (white light). He became pope on August 26, 1978, when the moon appeared exactly half full. It was in its waning phase. He died the following month, soon after an eclipse of the moon.
8. The Labor of the Son. JOHN PAUL II. 1978-2005. Pope John Paul II was the most traveled Pope in history. He circled the globe numerous times, preaching to huge audiences everywhere he went. He survived an assassination attempt. He has written a book which has enjoyed a large circulation. Like the sun which never ceases to labor and provides light daily, this Pope has been incessant. He was born on May 18, 1920. On that date in the morning there was a near total eclipse of the sun over Europe. Prophecy – The 110th Pope is “De Labore Solis” (Of the Solar Eclipse, or, From the Toil of the Sun). Like the sun he came out of the East (Poland).
9. The Glory of the Olive. The Order of St. Benedict has said this Pope will come from their order. It is interesting that Jesus gave his apocalyptic prophecy about the end of time from the Mount of Olives. This Pope will reign during the beginning of the tribulation Jesus spoke of. The 111th prophesy is “Gloria Olivae” (The Glory of the Olive). The Order of Saint Benedict has claimed that this pope will come from their ranks. Saint Benedict himself prophesied that before the end of the world his Order, known also as the Olivetans, will triumphantly lead the Catholic Church in its fight against evil.
10. PETER THE ROMAN – This final Pope will likely be Satan, taking the form of a man named Peter who will gain a worldwide allegiance and adoration. He will be the final antichrist which prophecy students have long foretold. If it were possible, even the very elect would be deceived. The 112th prophesy states: “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.
FROM THE CLEVELANDLEADER.COM
St. Malachy prophesied that the final pope would be “Peter the Roman”, which is interesting because no pope to date has chosen the name of Peter out of respect for Peter the Apostle. There has also been speculation that the final pope would be black. Even more curiously, there is a black cardinal in Ghana, Peter Turkson, who is believed to be a frontrunner and whose name has come up in previous discussions of papal appointment.
Cardinal Turkson has said in the past that “if God would wish to see a black man also as pope, thanks be to God.” Catholic Church chronicler Rocco Palmo has called Turkson the lone Scripture scholar in the Pope’s “Senate”, and believes that his status as a potential “papabile” has been elevated due to his 2009 appointment as spokesman for the Second Synod for Africa.
Outside of the Church, there are also many who believe that Turkson is the favorite to take over as pontiff. Even the London bookmakers believe he’s the top choice. Odds comparison site Oddschecker.com lists Turkson at best price odds of 4/1, and as short as 2/1 with some firms. Francis Arinze, the Nigerian Cardinal, is also a huge favorite with the bookies.
There are some who insist that Malachy did not say that the last pope he mentioned would be the 112th pope, insisting that he was merely the last, and theorizing that there could be more popes to come between Benedict and “Peter the Roman”. However, this is not a belief that everyone subscribes to and many believe that “Peter the Roman” will be both the 112th and last pope of the Catholic Church.
Malachy’s prophecies are taken very seriously as they’ve been uncannily accurate to date. Will the Catholic Church get its first black pope? Will “Peter the Roman” lead us into the End Times? These questions are set to be answered by Easter, which comes this year at the end of March, when the papal conclave announces their decision.
Pope Benedict XVI announced his decision to step down due to health concerns just days ahead of the start of the Lenten season. He is due to step down officially on February 28. The announcement surprised even his inner circle, who were said to be unaware that he was planning to step down.
NORWALK — Up until the moment that 18 right hands were raised to take oaths as new board members of the Norwalk branch of the NAACP on Tuesday evening, the challenge to the installation of Darnell Crosland as president, which began in November, spilled into the meeting with spirited allegations of an illegal election, threats of challenges and possible lawsuits by a segment of the membership.
The dissonance was rooted in a complaint filed by Shirley Mosby after the Nov. 13 election to replace President Anita B. Schmidt, in which Crosland secured the win with 44 votes cast in his favor over Mosby’s 40.
Mosby, who has served as first vice president of the Norwalk branch of the NAACP and the Norwalk Board of Education, filed a complaint on Nov.14 alleging that the Election Supervisory Committee and the Norwalk chapter branch secretary violated process and procedure during the election process, among other violations.
“Twenty-five people signed a petition about the election process and how it was handled,” Mosby said in a prior interview with The Hour. “They thought it was inappropriate and came to me, so on their behalf, I sent in the papers.”
The appeal was filed the day after the election on Nov. 14 with the group’s national headquarters in Maryland to the attention of President Benjamin Jealous and the Rev. Gil Ford.
“Those that came to me said they felt the election was not done properly,” Mosby said. “25 people was the requirement for the appeal, but there are more out there.”
On Jan. 3, the national office of the NAACP dismissed the complaint, alleging violations were made during the Norwalk branch’s election.
Schmidt said the letter sent by the NAACP contained the following message: “The national office has found that the complaint lacked the prerequisite 25 signatures and is therefore dismissed. This determination should not be construed as a conclusion on the part of the national office concerning validity of allegations in the complaint.”
Secretary Jill Griffin responded to allegations that the election was handled improperly.
“Everyone who voted was on the roster and eligible to vote,” Griffin said. “I made sure that everything was reviewed a month before the election. There may have been people who didn’t renew their membership on time and were ineligible. The rules are the rules.”
Not to be placated, the camp in favor of invalidating the election was led by John Mosby, who charged that the election was invalid and that the Norwalk chapter branch secretary violated process and procedure during the election process.
The statement read in part,”On November 14, 2012 twenty six members of the Norwalk Chapter Branch 2011 filed an Article IX complaint appeal for a new election…On or about December 15, 2012, I received a certified letter from Roger C. Vann, Chief Operating Officer and Chief of Staff responding to the …complaint. Mr. Vann found that the complaint lacked the prerequisite twenty five signatures and therefore the complaint was dismissed without an investigation into our complaint….Rev. Ford informed us that we did have the twenty six signatures but several were members not in good standing since they were not on the national roster…At this time the complaint is still pending waiting on a response from the NAACP National Board of Directors for an investigation to be done to determine the eligibility of the signors on the complaint who voted in the election or who was eligible to vote. I would recommend or suggest that the Norwalk Branch should hold off with the installation of officers until the issues and complaint have been resolved by the NAACP National office and the branch.”
” We’re a civil rights organization, how can we sit here and do the opposite in our own house?” said Shirley Mosby. “I want to go on the record as saying that the slate will be tainted.”
Crosland pointed out that there was no order to stay the installation from the national organization.
“We don’t know if an appeal was made,” Crosland said. “If so, let national do what it has to do and we’ll respect that decision. Right now we have no order to stay this installation.”
John Mosby responded by saying, “The appeal was done properly. We have a right to challenge the national. We will take this to court if we have to. We haven’t been treated right.”
The 18 board members were then sworn in by Bruce Morris.
As Crosland stood up to make some remarks about his vision for the NAACP, several attendees who had spoken in support of Mosby walked out of the meeting in protest.
“We’re moving forward with the people’s work and the people’s business,” Crosland said. “There’s no black cloud. I don’t see it that way. It’s gratifying that this is a chapter where people want to be involved. We need people who really want this position.”
President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for campaign reporting violations.
The fines are among the largest ever levied on a presidential campaign by the FEC and stem from a series of missing filings for nearly 1,300 contributions totaling nearly $1.8 million. Campaigns are required to file the reports during the final weeks of the campaign. POLITICO has more:
The major sticking point for the FEC appeared to be a series of missing 48-hour notices for nearly 1,300 contributions totaling more than $1.8 million — an issue that lawyers familiar with the commission’s work say the FEC takes seriously. The notices must be filed on contributions of $1,000 or more that are received within the 20-day window of Election Day.
More than half of those contributions were transferred from the Obama Victory Fund, a joint committee between the campaign and the Democratic National Committee. read more

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Tea party firebrand Rep. Allen West conceded his re-election fight Tuesday, two weeks after the election gave way to court appearances, two partial recounts and unending accusations by his camp that the vote count wasn’t fair.
In a statement, the Republican freshman said “there are certainly still inaccuracies in the results” but not enough to change the outcome, giving the race to Democratic newcomer Patrick Murphy.
“While a contest of the election results might have changed the vote totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change,” West said. read more
