He concluded the email with the phrase,“Hail victory!” a translation of the Nazi salute,“Sieg Heil!”
According to other emails Parks sent to his girlfriend from federal detention, he follows the teachings of the Christian Identity movement, which teaches that only white people have souls.
Prosecutors have requested a sentence of at least 10 years for Parks.

The Department of Justice is aiming to cut short the prison terms of some offenders who were handed sentences 100 times more severe because of an outdated racially discriminatory drug disparity, Deputy Attorney General James Cole announced Thursday.

Last month, President Obama shortened the sentences of eight crack offenders punished under the discriminatory regime, using his power under the Constitution to issue pardons (which erase the sentence) and commutations (which cut the sentences short). Cole said Thursday before a New York gathering of lawyers that those commutations were just a “first step” and that it is the Justice Department’s goal to “find additional candidates” and recommend them to the president for clemency.

“There are more low-level, nonviolent drug offenders who remain in prison, and who would likely have received a substantially lower sentence if convicted of precisely the same offenses today,” Cole said.“This is not fair, and it harms our criminal justice system.”

House Republicans have used a variety of excuses — citing Obamacare, sequestration, Syria, or the drug war — to explain their reasons for not passing a comprehensive immigration bill. But a Republican congressman cited one reason for the stalemate the GOP won’t admit publicly. The Southern congressman told BuzzFeed it is a matter of race.

“Part of it, I think — and I hate to say this, because these are my people — but I hate to say it, but it’s racial,” said the lawmaker, who remained anonymous.“If you go to town halls people say things like,‘These people have different cultural customs than we do.’ And that’s code for race.”

And where is that inbred dem?
so you're another who thinks FOX has some relevance beyond being a Republican propaganda channel?

still waiting for someone to show me something that says otherwise. i would think after all the BS that they threw out in the run up to the 2012 election that failed to get any traction it would be a big enough clue that you FOXbots would quit trying to defend the infotainers.

FOX is not journalism. FOX is emphatic assertion based solely on opinion. someone who thinks that everything that rolls out of the mouth of a FOX talking head is undeniable truth is going to very disappointed when the prognostications of said heads fall flat on their face. but as a mentioned....you should already be there.

btw...only.4.6% of the republicans who voted for Romney watch FOX. i will not be impressed with a rundown of their ratings. far from it.

Right-wing talk shows turned White House blue

Talk isn’t cheap, as Republicans have learned. The conservative talk show culture is proving expensive for GOP presidential hopefuls.

Since Rush Limbaugh’s 1992 bestseller “The Way Things Ought to Be,” his conservative talk show politics have dominated GOP presidential discourse – and the Republicans’ White House fortunes have plummeted. But when the mainstream media reigned supreme, between 1952 and 1988, Republicans won seven out of the 10 presidential elections.

Conservative talk show hosts and Fox News blame the “lamestream” national media’s “liberal bias” for the GOP’s poor showing since 1992. Yet the rise of the conservative-dominated media defines the era when the fortunes of GOP presidential hopefuls dropped to the worst levels since the party’s founding in 1856.

It was when most Americans got most of their information from network news programs, which took their lead from what conservatives labeled “liberal” newspapers, that the GOP held the White House. Yet the right regularly accused the mainstream news media of colluding to turn the public against conservative nominees.

Is it all a coincidence that Democrats’ fortunes reversed as Limbaugh and his imitators gained influence?

Despite Limbaugh’s ridicule, in 1992, Bill Clinton won more electoral votes than any Democratic challenger in 60 years. In the previous six presidential elections (1968-1988), the Republicans had won five times – all but one by an electoral landslide. Since conservative media began to flourish, only once (2004) has the GOP candidate captured more than 50 percent of the popular vote. And that candidate, President George W. Bush, had the lowest re-election results of any conservative chief executive in U.S. history.

On the other hand, between 1996 and 2008, with conservative media ascendant, four different Democratic standard-bearers in successive elections – Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama – combined for a majority of the popular vote. Democratic nominees had never enjoyed this level of serial success. In 2012, Obama won re-election in a second majority-vote victory – the first Democrat to do so since Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Coincidence again?

“Some things are just too coincidental to be a coincidence,” as Yogi Berra once said.

....Contrary to talk show revisionist history, the “mainstream media” proved the GOP’s best friend for several generations. ABC, CBS and NBC Nightly News worked for GOP presidential candidates – convincing voters to see elections through a wide prism.

Conservatives delighting at the influence of their favorite talk show hosts and the decline of the mainstream media have missed this crucial modern political lesson: The GOP fared best in presidential politics through a nationalizing lens – not narrow-based ideological appeals.

Obama would rather bypass our overly abundant natural resources and spend millions on his pie-in-the-sky idea of windmills and solar panels providing enough energy to sustain a nation of this size. Windmills can't even get off the ground to provide enough energy for Massachusetts - which is a very small state.
Obama couldn't even succeed investing taxpayer money into Solyndra because solar panels are too costly but, yet, he still doesn't get it.
It's just too hard to believe we have such a detached and uninformed president making these kinds of decisions from the same ivory tower with the same envisioned utopia in these crucial times. What's even harder to believe is this country elected him again.
Renewables are buried ion a fog of intentional obfuscation. Do their listed costs and ROI reflect Federal subsidies, State subsidies, Utility Subsidies or can they stand on their own in the marketplace? If they *can't* then we are all paying through the nose for them in our taxes and phooey on you for lying about how cheap they are.

Changing weather patterns can leave Wind Turbines standing as monuments to stupidity. Put 'em on wheels, maybe?

What happens to a sailing ship when caught in the doldrums?

We constantly hear about a New! Improved Solar Panel that is cheaper!

But how about it's efficiency? Lifespan? Environmental damage from production?

A good comedian could make a living telling Renewable Jokes.

In a major step Thursday, House Republican leaders released a broad set of principles for immigration reform that includes offering legal status to the 11 million people living in the United States illegally.
It's just the first step, and the future of reform remains very murky, with an explosive debate to come. House Republicans have yet to craft bills that reflects these ideas. Many GOP lawmakers don't want to act on the issue at all.
Under the leadership's proposal, undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children will be eligible for eventual citizenship. But those who came as adults won't be promised any such thing, although the proposal does not preclude them from seeking permanent residency and ultimately citizenship through the regular channels.

Deny it.
this is where you'll find today's anti-war crowd. and real conservatives.

The themes that run through the works of the first prominent figures to call themselves conservatives–thinkers such as Russell Kirk, Peter Viereck, and Robert Nisbet–are peace, community (self-government as well as civil society), and fiscal restraint. Today, of course, many politicians and pundits who call themselves conservatives seem to stand for something else: war, every man for himself, and endless deficits and debt.

What wrecked the good name of conservatism? Success. The conservative critique of the liberal welfare-warfare state was so powerful that special interests (such as those Eisenhower called the Military-Industrial Complex) and opportunistic politicians began to adopt the label and offer fame, money, and power to conservatives who would admit them to the fellowship. As well, there was another reaction against the new age of ideology and bigness, a populist reaction. Combining populist anger with the name of conservatism proved a winning formula for fundraisers and office-seekers. But instead of making the populist uprising more conservative, the effect was to remake conservatism as populism. Thus the principle conservative values of peace, community, and economic responsibility came to be lost amid wars and rumors of wars, Keynesianism and promises of perpetual, debt-fueled growth.

The original conservatives (and some of their libertarian and even liberal friends, those who were more conservative than they knew) had it right. Today the country pays the price for the left-wing ideologies that ran rampant in the 20th century and the right-wing, but not conservative, reaction that has only exacerbated the destruction wrought by the left. To solve the country’s seemingly intractable–and, in the long-term, lethal–strategic, economic, and socio-cultural problems requires a rediscovery of traditional conservatism.

That’s the mission of The American Conservative.
