Doctor Disobeyed A Gun Free Zone, And Saved Lives Because Of It


Posted on July 29 - from Liberty Crier

[Ed. note: Often well-meaning people think they are doing what is best... but they are wrong.]

A suspected gunman burst into a Pennsylvania hospital’s psychiatric ward, killing a female caseworker and wounding a psychiatrist Thursday before the doctor returned fire and critically injured Richard Plotts, authorities said.

The gunfire erupted on the third floor of the Sister Marie Lenahan Wellness Center, which is part of the Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby, just outside of Philadelphia, about 2:15 p.m., Darby Borough Mayor Helen Thomas told the Daily News. Read more...



Obama’s Crackdown On Leakers Damages Constitutional Protections, Activists Say




Posted on July 29 - from Personal Liberty Digest

[Ed. note: The report describes one journalist deliberately creating a misleading electronic trail by calling a large number of possible sources before a story comes out to disguise who the information came from.]

Recent revelations of the U.S. government’s pervasive surveillance program and its crackdown on leaks are making it increasingly difficult for American journalists and lawyers to do their jobs, the advocacy group Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union said in a report released Monday.

It’s becoming impossible to ensure privacy for sources and clients by protecting their information, the report found. Government officials not only are substantially less willing to be in contact with journalists than they were a few years ago, but they also are even refusing to discuss unclassified matters or personal opinions.

“They are afraid of losing their security clearances, being fired or even being prosecuted,” Alex Sinha, the author of the report and a fellow at Human Rights Watch, said in a news conference at the National Press Club. Read more...



The Importance of Integrity and Public Virtue of Public Officials


Posted on July 28 - from Truth Dispatch

[Ed. note: The American people do not trust our government because the leaders we elect have no integrity and public virtue...]

Original sin and the rise of moral relativism is why integrity and public virtue among our public officials is so important. Trust in our government is at an all-time low, not just the Congress, but also the Presidency and the Judiciary. The lack of trust in our government is not because the American people think the government is not doing anything for them; it is doing too much for us. The American people do not trust our government because the leaders we elect have no integrity and public virtue, and they have no ethics to maintain public virtue.

When a politician violates ethics rules and breaches his integrity, we politicize the situation. We blame each other for punishing those in the opposite party, but reward those ethics violators who are in our own party. Both of which have become true. When ethics are violated regardless of political party, we should stand united in our demand that they resign and are punished for their wrongdoing. Read more...



Conservatives, libertarians and liberals should all worry about the militarization of police




Posted on July 28 - from FoxNews

[Ed. note: If cops continue to take a warlike us-versus-them approach to policing the population, they just might bring the left and right together.]

I want the police to be better armed than the bad guys, but what exactly does that mean today?

Apparently it means the Pentagon and Department of Homeland Security equip even the tiniest rural police departments with massive military vehicles, body armor and grenade launchers. The equipment is surplus from the long wars we fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.

To a hammer, everything resembles a nail. SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) teams were once used only in emergencies such as riots or robberies where hostages were taken. But today there are more than 50,000 "no-knock raids" a year. Read more...



The Federal Government is not Working For Us, But Against Us


Posted on July 26 - from Freedom Outpost

[Ed. note: With a president who doesn't like our country and, in many ways, most Americans, this is what we get.]

For the last six years, our governmental policies have turned against the people they are supposed to serve. Since Obama became president, "we the people" are getting hosed big time. Countless new regulations that were sold as a quick fix to all our woes, are instead a costly labyrinth of bureaucratic red tape. Instead of being less expensive, they are so overpriced that they really aren't worth what we are being forced to pay; not forgetting that thousands and thousands of new government personnel that have been hired, but the money that some of these agencies is wasting is really criminal. Our government is actually growing at a faster rate than our beleaguered economy can sustain. And really, what benefits are American citizens really getting, besides a more costly infrastructure that continuously feeds on the American taxpayer?

We are told by liberals and Democrats that we need more laws, more regulations and, of course, more money through higher taxes, to run the whole thing. That's the joke. It never gets more efficient and it never gets less expensive, but liberals and Democrats tell us that without these new costly regulations and services the entire infrastructure will come crashing down around us and we'll all be thrown back into the dark ages.

Abortion: Doctors and Med Students

Posted on July 25 - from Life News

[Ed. note: The main disappointment expressed by abortion advocates is that eliminating criminal penalties for performing abortions did not erase the stigma associated with being an abortionist.]

"When I walk into a room everybody knows my politics, and people come up to me and smile, and I'll turn around and they'll go, 'That [expletive] abortionist!' You're never comfortable in a room… Slowly but surely you become more ostracized. People who support me don't really want to be around me anyway and people who don't support me don't want to be around me."
Wayne Goldner, Abortionist

The medical community has never accepted abortion as a respectable part of mainstream medicine. ACCESS: The Key to Pro-Life Victory contains quotes from abortionists, abortion supporters and the media that reveal the grim life that awaits those who perform abortions. The stigma attached to abortion and abortionists makes life miserable for abortion providers. And, as if that wasn't enough, abortion clinics and doctors who perform abortion are facing an onslaught of medical malpractice lawsuits. Read more...



Planned Parenthood Counselor Caught Telling Teen to Let Her Boyfriend Beat Her




Posted on July 24 - from Life News

[Ed. note: Some girls like being “spanked,” “hit,” or “whipped,” said the counselor.]

Abortion activists claim pro-lifers are engaging in a “war on women:” by passing legislation to protect women and unborn children from abortion. But a new expose’ video catches a Planned Parenthood staffer engaging in her own war on women.

The pro-life group Live Action released the third installment today in its “SexEd” investigative series, showing a Planned Parenthood staffer in Portland, Oregon offering disturbing sex counseling to someone she thinks is a fifteen-year-old girl. The video clearly shows the counselor encouraging the young girl to allow herself to be victimized in violent sexual encounters with her partner.

The staffer tells the investigator that “it’s very common to experiment with different things,” including “being tied up” and “whipped” and “the baby thing, where they will put on diapers[.]” Read more...



Shamiya Adams Is Dead Because Of Stray Gunfire At Sleepover


Posted on July 23 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: Is there anything we can do to find an agreement of sorts that will put a stop to urban violence? Christ is the answer, but will they listen?]

Tragedies like this should evoke instant " cease fires " among not inner city chocolate Klansmen who clearly don't care, but also warring political tribes popularly known as Black conservatives and Black liberals. When 11 year olds like Chicago's Shamiya Adams are killed by stray bullets, and such outrages aren't unusual, its clear competing advocacy of traditional values or liberation face steep uphill climbs to fruition.

Every one of these cases involved a cute boy or girl whose smiling face deserved far better than mindless murder in a hostage Hood where this is a norm.

Would alliances between otherwise bitter community foes like Al Sharpton and Allen West offer the missing hammer Black America needs to beat thugs I call chocolate Klansmen into submission? Would this demonstrate we finally united against their rampages? Imagine marches with Dr. Ben Carson and Jesse Jackson arm-in-arm, leading outraged residents and supporters through the heart of the worst areas, with people organized afterward to make these hell holes safer?

Obama's LGBT Executive Order endangers religious liberty


Posted on July 22 - from Fox News

[Ed. note: This administration believes gay rights trump everyone else’s rights – including religious rights.]

President Obama signed an executive order Monday barring federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity – ignoring the pleas of Christian and other faith leaders to include an exemption for religious organizations.

“Thanks to your passion and advocacy and the irrefutable rightness of your cause, our government – the government of the people, by the people and for the people – will become just a little bit fairer,” the president told a gathering in the White House.

The executive order would prevent Christian and other religious organizations with federal contracts from requiring workers to adhere to the tenets of their religious beliefs. Christianity Today reports the order could impact religious non-profits such as World Vision, World Relief and Catholic Charities. Read more...



Who Opposes Christ and Why ?

Posted on July 21 - from Truth Dispatch

[Ed. note: It's been said that truth is the new hate speech.]

Our military now has a foundation that opposes Christianity within its ranks. A national level advisor lobbies to have all references to Christianity removed from all military bases, even the military academies. Why? Who are these people and what do they actually support? Are they merely anti-Christian? Muslims? Atheists? Or anti-God?

Surprisingly, that national advisor, Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) wrote, “Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.” He is not a Muslim nor practicing Jew.

He cites Dr. James Dobson—the famous Christian founder of Focus on the Family—as “illustrating the extremist, militant nature of these virulently homophobic organizations’ rhetorically-charged propaganda.” Regarding those who teach orthodox Christian beliefs from the Bible, Weinstein concludes, “Let’s call these ignoble actions what they are: the senseless and cowardly squallings of human monsters.” Read more...



Government Acts as if All Income Is Its Own


Posted on July 21 - from Money News

[Ed. note: Our government believes that it's priorities, "needs" and desires take precedence over the welfare of the citizens.]

The government is taking away the rights of citizens to control their own income, says Stanford University economist Michael Boskin.

"Property rights and the rule of law are essential foundations for a vibrant economy," he writes in The Wall Street Journal. "When they are threatened, or uncertain, the result is inefficiency, rent-seeking, a larger underground economy and capital flight."

"Individual rights to capital, land and the fruits of one's labor are threatened — in many cases redistributed from creditors to debtors, from those out of political power to those in power, and especially from young to old. And a much larger battle is looming." Read more...



Holocaust denied by students in Rialto school assignment


Posted on July 18 - from Los Angeles Daily News

[Ed. note: The godless public education system revising history to fit its goals of changing our past so as to change our future.]

Dozens of Rialto eighth-graders questioned whether the Holocaust occurred in essays written for an in-class assignment this spring. Rialto Unified School District administrators, besieged by criticism after the assignment became public in May, claimed at the time that none of the students who completed the assignment questioned or denied the Holocaust, but a survey of the students’ work by this news organization found numerous examples of students expressing doubt or flatly denying that the Holocaust occurred.

“I believe the event was fake, according to source 2 the event was exhaggerated,” one student wrote. (Students’ and teachers’ original spelling and grammar are retained throughout this story.) “I felt that was strong enogh evidence to persuade me the event was a hoax.”

In some cases, students earned high marks and praise for arguing the Holocaust never occurred, with teachers praising their well-reasoned arguments: “you did well using the evidence to support your claim,” the above student’s teacher wrote on his assignment. Read more...



The Collapse of America - A Plan Decades in the Making


Posted on July 17 - from Freedom Outpost

[Ed. note: Cloward - Piven explained.]

While many people are awakening to the Obama administration and their attempts to undermine our national sovereignty, it must be stated that this has been an ongoing effort for many, many decades. Barrack Obama is merely a tool selected to get an already conditioned population to accept the final stages of a plan that will see the United States surrender its sovereignty and merge into a global governing structure where she will no longer be respected as a world super power, but viewed merely as another third world nation that is morally equivalent to all others. There are three main pillars of our society and culture that need to be changed from the inside in order for this transformation to take place; immigration, education and the military. It is hard to argue, even for those who adamantly oppose any idea of conspiracy theories, that these three elements of our society have not been radically affected in recent years. This article will offer a brief analysis into the events taking place and the historical roots behind them. This is indeed a planned collapse, and to be calling it out for what it is now is indeed too little too late.

As the crisis along our border escalates, we are hearing more and more on the whole situation being a planned event to precipitate the total collapse of our nation. Even congressmen are coming out and calling this a deliberate application of the Cloward & Piven strategy. For those who may not know, the Cloward & Piven strategy was the work of two Sociology Professors at Columbia University, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, designed to organize the nation's poor and minorities into a power base from which the country, through the democratic process, could be converted into a socialist state. One of the key components of this strategy was the idea of overwhelming the nation's welfare system to the point where it collapses, and the government would then be forced to adapt socialism.

How Israel is Fighting for its Life

Posted on July 16 - from New York Post

[Ed. note: Until the Palestinians accept Israel, there can be no lasting peace.]

Even before the shooting stops between Israel and Palestinian terrorists, the one guarantee is that Israel will get most of the blame. Already the demands from the United Nations that Israel show “restraint” are as predictable as Palestinian rockets.

The tiny Jewish state is under fierce attack, with millions of its citizens spending long hours in bomb shelters. Yet any response beyond a mere tit-for-tat is labeled disproportionate, putting Israel in the impossible position of being damned if it does and doomed if it doesn’t.

Of course, it must strike back hard, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears resolved that the Hamas that started this war will not be the same Hamas when it is over. How and when we get there remains unknown, but one thing we do know is how we got where we are. Read more...



The Immorality Of Paper Money

Posted on July 15 - from Personal Liberty Digest

[Ed. note: With the Fed creating dollars out of thin air to buy securities that they can sell for dollars people earned... no good can be found.]

One of today’s most common economic fallacies is that the soaring stock market is evidence of economic recovery. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Stocks have almost tripled since the 2008 collapse, but that stock growth stems from Federal Reserve money printing (inflation) and near zero interest rates. The Fed’s balance sheet has grown more than fourfold since 2008 — to $4.3 trillion — and was used to prop up the “too big to fails.” That money had to go somewhere.

It has found its way into the stock market because U.S. Treasuries are paying less than the rate of inflation; and corporate bonds, certificates of deposit and other fixed-income products pay even less. This and price inflation (currency devaluation) is fueling the rise, not positive economic growth or common sense. Read more...



Census Bureau Rep To Homeowner: “There Is Nothing Private, Sir.”


Posted on July 14 - from Uncorporate Media

[Ed. note: Mere bureaucrats are becoming more adament about our obedience to their unjustified and unconstitutional demands.]

On the 11th of June, 2014, UCM posted a video showing a Southern California resident having, what some might call, a “mildly heated verbal denial of cooperation,” after a second visit by a U.S. Department of Commerce Census interrogation agent.

There is no Constitutional provision that says any questions must be answered, in fact. Furthermore, a Census badge is not a delegation of enforcement authority, and he did not have a court order. He was in trespass after being asked to leave the first time. Statutes must derive from “Constitutional authority”. Unless anyone can show us a Constitutional provision that authorizes someone to make their way onto private property and threaten people to provide personal information, UCM will maintain the position that Agent Gregg was breaking the law and harassing the resident.

The most shocking thing about this interaction was what Agent Gregg boldly stated throughout this dialog: Starting at time code1:14, you can hear the resident ask Agent Gregg, “Are you aware of the Constitution?” Agent Gregg replies, “Yes, sir I am” The resident replies “Cool, then you understand.” Agent Gregg responds, “I understand what? Are you aware that this is a mandatory survey from the U.S. Department of Commerce?” Later in the video, the resident states, “That’s the whole point of private property. Private. Private property.” Agent Gregg’s disappointing rebuttal? “There is nothing private sir.” Read more...



American Everyman: The Ballad Of John Q. Public


Posted on July 11 - from Personal Liberty Digest

[Ed. note: Where every man is looked on with suspicion... not because he harms anyone, but because he does not want to be harmed.]

Most people go through most of their days without even denting the law, much less breaking it. Not counting the beneficiaries of President Barack Obama’s open enrollment plan for illegal aliens, there are more than 300 million Americans, most of whom won’t build a rap sheet beyond the occasional speeding ticket. Despite our professed desire to “stick it to the man,” we are, by and large, a fairly placid lot. Yet our government has developed an ugly tendency to treat us like we’re criminals, except for those of us who actually are criminals. The latter group, of course, comprises people who are merely misunderstood, those are victims of the evil white patriarchy and the Attorney General (currently, that’s Eric Holder, who’s all three).

But John Q. Public isn’t much of a threat to anyone or anything beyond that double-baco-cheese-monster burger with large fries he ordered for lunch. Sure, he might tip the speedometer a few nicks past 65 on the interstate from time to time. And he did jaywalk on his way to McCoronary’s to stuff the aforementioned myocardial infarction into his already-prodigious gullet. But he’s managed to get this far in life without any major run-ins with Johnny Law.

Nonetheless, Public is the one who gets the second look from Uncle Sam. Since sometime around January 2009, it’s the everyman whom the government began treating like public enemy No. 1. His Internet usage is monitored by the National Security Agency. Every time he emails pics to Mom from the trip to Fort Walton Beach, Fla., the government keeps a copy for itself. When he calls Mom to check on how her new hip is treating her, odds are a third party in the bowels of Fort Meade is getting the update as well. Of course, the NSA probably already knew how the new hip was working out; it probably downloaded her medical records months ago. And God forbid he donates a couple bucks to the local Tea Party chapter. If so, he’s probably getting ready for an Internal Revenue Service audit/proctological exam. Read more...



A Primer on Race

[Ed. note: Thomas Sowell lived this story and knows whereof he speaks.]

Back in the heyday of the British Empire, a man from one of the colonies addressed a London audience.

"Please do not do any more good in my country," he said. "We have suffered too much already from all the good that you have done."

That is essentially the message of an outstanding new book by Jason Riley about blacks in America. Its title is "Please Stop Helping Us." Its theme is that many policies designed to help blacks are in fact harmful, sometimes devastatingly so. These counterproductive policies range from minimum wage laws to "affirmative action" quotas.

NOW Calls Little Sisters of the Poor “Dirty,” Claims Nuns Use Religion to Attack Women




Posted on July 9 - from Life News

[Ed. note: Attacking people who dedicate their lives to helping others is an indication of character.]

The National Organization of Women (NOW) has compiled a list of what they’re calling the “Dirty 100” — organizations who have filed suit against the HHS Contraception Mandate.

One of the “Dirty 100? organizations that NOW claims is simply “using religion” to discriminate against women, is, in fact, a group of Catholic religious sisters called the Little Sisters of the Poor.

The Little Sisters of the Poor take vows to tend to the needs of the elderly poor. They are opposed to providing contraception to their employees as contraception violates the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The Little Sisters of the Poor are not considered to be a “religious employer” and exempt from the mandate as they employ and care for people of all faith backgrounds. Read more...



More Evidence of Illegal 'Cash for Vote' Operation by Cochran Campaign Piles Up




Posted on July 9 - from GotNews.com

[Ed. note: Thad Cochran's campaign filing add fuel to the claims that the Republican used the old Democrat strategy of passing out "walking around money". The differences between parties are getting smaller every day.]

Cochran campaign staffer Amanda Shook was illegally reimbursed for over $40,000 cash in walking around money during the Republican primary, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. The payments are described as "Reimbursed Expenses - Campaign Walkers."

Regulation 11 CFR 116.5 expressly defines funds advanced by campaign staff for any reason other than travel or subsistence as a loan. It is illegal under FEC rules to loan money to a campaign in excess of the contribution limit of $2,600. "[I]f your loan exceeds the limits, it is an illegal contribution, even if it is later repaid in full," notes the FEC website.

Shook was previously alleged to be one of the sources of street cash in an alleged vote-buying operation in a Gotnews.com report from the Reverend Stevie Fielder. Read more...



Reid: Undoing Hobby Lobby Ruling A Top Democrat Priority


Posted on July 8 - from Personal Liberty Digest

[Ed. note: Unlike Republicans, Democrats don't give up when faced with defeat. The party that booed God at the convention is intent upon securing the supremecy of progressive government over the Christian conscience.]

Speaking from the Senate floor Monday, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) included undoing the Supreme Court’s recent ruling allowing some employers with religious objections to opt out of Obamacare’s contraception mandate on a list of Democratic legislative priorities.

“We have so much to address over the coming weeks,” Reid said, before running through a list of upcoming legislation that will pass through the Senate in coming weeks.

Among the Democrats’ legislative priorities, according to Reid, are securing emergency funding to deal with the unaccompanied minors flowing across the southern border, renewing the charter for the Export-Import Bank and allocating monies for the highway trust fund.

“We’re going to do something about the Hobby Lobby legislation we need to correct,” Reid continued. Read more...



VT organic farmer and GMO expert: Labels ‘like skull and crossbones’


Posted on July 8 - from VermontWatchDog.org

[Ed. note: Using the progressive government's argument, if there is nothing wrong with GMOs, why would labeling them be a problem? We can watch to see if our "leaders" will listen to the people or the corporations.]

Will Allen is not just an organic farmer — he’s an expert. As the head of Cedar Circle Farm, Allen brings a lifetime of sustainable farming experience to the 40 acres of vegetables and berries that line the Connecticut River in East Thetford, Vt., on land conserved by the Vermont Land Trust.

A professor and activist, Allan’s bio features many credentials, from founder of the Sustainable Cotton Project and the California Certified Organic Farmers Organization to policy adviser to the Organic Consumer Association. If all goes according to plan, Allen may soon add a new credential to the list: litigant in Vermont’s multimillion-dollar GMO lawsuit with the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association.

So when Allen speaks on the impact of GMO labeling on food manufacturers, people listen. “They’re worried about skull and crossbones on food labels, because that’s what they think is going to happen as soon as you put a genetic engineering label on it — it’s like a skull and crossbones,” Allen told Vermont Watchdog.

Here’s why cops should be required to wear a lapel camera while on duty


Posted on July 7 - from Washington Post

[Ed. note: With so much controversy surrounding public interactions with law enforcement, this is an idea whose time may have come.]

Police officers in Rialto, Calif., carry cameras to record their every action while on duty. The city says the program has reduced complaints against police officers by 88 percent during the first year.

The idea is sparking debate across the country. On Wednesday, the American Civil Liberties Union endorsed the idea. In a short position paper endorsing the idea, it also emphasized the potential for the technology to be misused, and recommended policies to minimize the potential downsides.

"Although we generally take a dim view of the proliferation of surveillance cameras in American life, police on-body cameras are different because of their potential to serve as a check against the abuse of power by police officers," the civil liberties group argues. Read more...

In 1928, Edward L. Bernays, the “father of public relations,” wrote in his book, Propaganda:

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.

"We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.

"In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons… who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind Read more...



State Bills to Arrest Federal Agents: A Poison Pill

Read this, and see if your initial reaction was one of rejection. Give your head a spin and see if you don't come to the realization that resistance by "non-cooperation" is the sensible action right now.

You can wage the non-co-ops individually, or as a group. State efforts are walloping the daylights out of Obamacare with non co-op laws. Use your own imagination for new targets of non-co-op. And, it's safe, non-violent, and c-h-e-a-p. No lawyers to impede you, and something even a state legislature could warm up to.

Round up your ideas on the web, and go to it. Kinda of a "Me no habla engles", sorta thing. Mind over matter.

How to Topple a Tyranny

Posted on July 2 - from Instead of Politics

[Ed. note: Four pillars that support the ambitions of one who would rule.]

Man is a fallible beast, and the moral strength to resist the lure of power to control others without reprisal is as rare as hens' teeth. The worst class of offenders are drawn to the occupation of politics because, without the checks and balances of market discipline that is dispensed in a competitive marketplace, one is not held accountable for one's offenses. Only when he is granted immunity from the natural corrective process can anyone hold a monopoly over a good or service for any length of time, because his competitors will quickly seize the opportunity to gain a share of the wealth.

Certain conditions are required, however, in order for a slithery serpent to evolve into a soaring, fire-breathing dragon. A tyranny can only come to birth when a subsidy of four key industries has been granted by his subjects or a third party; defense, communication, finance and law. The tyrant has many tools at his disposal to enslave both his subjects and his enemies, and thus grow his empire. But none of them can be fully maintained without monopolization of these four key industries. Denationalizing any of the four will significantly reduce his power to manipulate others, but eliminating all four monopolies will render him fully mortal once again.

The Pillar of Defense

The first of these, defense, has historically been provided through a centralized military that could be used both defensively and offensively. Even the liberal US Constitution provides for a centralized military that can be funded temporarily by the States out of the general fund when the militias of individual States are deemed unfit to supply their own protection. The State delegations held out on ratification of the US Constitution until the primacy of the militia over the Army was included. Centralization, however, enabled it to become thoroughly engulfed by the federal military-industrial complex. It was not a difficult transition, however, because politicians at both the federal and state levels shared control over their management. Of course, centralized control over the military makes all rights and freedoms irrelevant. Even the rights nominally guaranteed by a Constitution are rendered void, because those with the power to enforce them also have the power to violate them - which becomes increasingly attractive. The power to subjugate an official foreign enemy is the power to subjugate a peaceful citizenry. A tyrant makes no distinction. Read more...



The European Union prepares the ‘solidarity clause’ framework for military use against citizens




Posted on July 1 - from StratRisks

[Ed. note: It seems that more than one EU member is concerned abour internal enemies - could they be the growing Muslim population, or could it be the little people who tire of being controlled?]

“On Tuesday, the representatives of the EU Member States in the Council adopted a decision on the so-called ‘solidarity clause’. Were a disaster or a loosely defined crisis to occur, the organs of the European Union would be obliged to assist using all the instruments at their disposal. This includes military resources”, warned Member of the Bundestag Andrej Hunko.

The proposal on ‘arrangements for the implementation by the Union of the Solidarity Clause’ was jointly presented by the Commission and the EU High Representative in 2012. A country can invoke the “solidarity clause” if a crisis “overwhelms its response capacities”. Mention is made of operational, policy and financial instruments and structures.

Andrej Hunko continued: “The adoption at the General Affairs Council took place in secret: the point was not mentioned on the agenda of the meeting. The press was not informed. Yet this is one of the most controversial clauses contained in the EU treaties. That is precisely the reason why agreement on the details of the solidarity clause was postponed to a later point at the time of the signature of the Lisbon Treaty. Read more...

Israel's "Disproportionate" Self-Defense


Posted on July 29 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: The Israelis want peace. The only way they will obtain it is to make waging war against them too painful to sustain.

On Sunday, July 27, Eleanor Cliff, a member of The McLaughlin Group panel, referred to Israel’s “disproportionate” response to the thousands of rockets and missiles that Hamas has been firing at its citizens for months, if not years.

This is a common criticism of Israel, but it is far easier to make if you are living safely somewhere other than Israel and not being awakened by alarm sirens at 5 A.M. with just a little time to make it to a bomb shelter.

Ms. Cliff was hardly alone. In Great Britain, the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, in contrast to Prime Minister David Cameron, also declared Israel’s response to Hamas as a “disproportionate form of collective punishment” on the citizens of Gaza. Read more...

Democrats Want Votes; Republicans Want Cheap Labor


Posted on July 26 - from chuckbaldwin.live

[Ed. note: Republican leadership anyway... and we owe a greater debt of gratitude to the good people of VA-7 than most of us understand.

The invasion of illegal aliens across our southern border is no extemporaneous event. It is a cold, calculated, and cunning attempt to fundamentally change America. The Obama Administration has sent a loud and clear signal to our neighbors to the south that illegals are welcome, that they won’t be sent home, and that they will be provided either real or de facto amnesty--especially if those illegals are minors. The result is a torrent of illegals pouring over the border into the United States. These illegals are being housed, fed, given medical care, and are being transported to destinations throughout the U.S. Few are being deported. Several military installations have been essentially turned into daycare centers and nurseries, and according to several published reports, up to 70% of U.S. Border Patrol personnel are now being assigned to administrative duties in an attempt to process the hundreds of thousands of illegals that have amassed at the border.

Giving amnesty to illegal aliens is a long time goal of both Democrats and Republicans in Washington, D.C. U.S. Congressman Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich) stated it succinctly: “Democrats want the votes, and the Republicans want the cheap labor.”

The only people opposing granting amnesty to illegals in Washington, D.C., are the Tea Party Republicans. And had it not been for the defeat of Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (a major proponent of amnesty) by Tea Party Republicans in Virginia a few weeks ago, there is absolutely no question that the GOP-led House and Democrat-led Senate would have collaborated on, and passed, an amnesty bill this summer. But with the defeat of Cantor, scores of GOP House members are extremely skittish about supporting amnesty--especially with the fall elections just around the corner. Read more...



The secret is out: ‘Unaccompanied minors’ are only one-fourth of illegal border-crossers




Posted on July 25 - from Washington Times

[Ed. note: “Democrats haven't changed anyone's mind. They changed the people.” - Ann Coulter

A Border Patrol report reveals that “unaccompanied minors” are only one-fourth of the current invasion from Central America across our Southwest border. The crossings by family units have increased almost five times faster. This contradicts White House and media efforts to elicit public sympathy by focusing public attention on children.

Total other-than-Mexican (OTM) apprehensions were 202,951 in the Southwest Border Sector (with three-fourths of those in the Rio Grande Valley) from Oct.1 through June 30. Of those, 57,525 were “unaccompanied alien children.” The other 145,426 persons were among 55,420 “family units” who also crossed the border, according to the report. The document can be viewed online here.

The Border Patrol report reveals far more explosive increase of illegal immigration by families than by minors. The increase among minors is 106 percent great than fiscal year 2013. But among family units the increase is an incredible 493 percent. Read more...



Why Does Anyone Defend Hamas And The Palestinian Culture Of Death?




Posted on July 24 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: “Why in God’s name does anyone show sympathy, and support for a terrorist organization?” - Former Congressman Allen West

And that is the question that should be asked. It boggles the mind and offends the senses that there is EVEN ONE MEMBER OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION who is upset that Israel is pummeling the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. Under Ariel Sharon, Israel forcibly removed its citizens from Gaza and turned the land over to the Arabs. Israel has been rewarded for that gesture of conciliation with the abduction and killing of its citizens and the launching of hundreds of rockets into its territory.

Such provocations have finally goaded the state of Israel into launching a ground invasion of Gaza to take on the infamous Hamas, a terrorist group famous for hiding behind women and children even as they target the same. Death and destruction is a deserving end to all those who purposefully target, kidnap, and murder young, innocent civilians. That’s the tragic event that triggered this latest round of the current conflict. May all those in Gaza who support such practices pay a very severe price for doing so.

In reality, Hamas has constructed a terror state on the border of Israel which, at its core, seeks to fulfill the vision of Hitler and “drive the Jews into the sea.” And now, right on cue, the Left, and the Muslims it has allowed into the West, are now marching, protesting, and rioting outside synagogues shouting “Death to the Jews” and “Hitler was right.” It is disgusting for any member of the supposedly civilized West to embrace the cult of the belly-bombers and they should be roundly condemned at every opportunity. It seems that every generation forgets the lessons of history. Read more...



A Question for Israel’s Critics

Posted on July 23 - from BarbWire

[Ed. note: As expressed more recently by a Muslim cleric in Lebanon, “We will give the skulls of your midgets as gifts for our children’s feet to play with.”

In light of the murderous actions and intentions of Hamas, what would you like Israel to do? I wholeheartedly concur that the death of even one unarmed civilian is tragic, let alone the death of scores or of hundreds. And I affirm without hesitation that Arab blood is as precious as Jewish blood.

That being said, since Hamas is sworn to Israel’s destruction, since Hamas initiated the recent hostilities, since Hamas rejected cease fire offers, since Hamas is using civilians, including women and children, as human shields, and since Hamas is actively attempting to infiltrate Israel and murder, kidnap, and maim its people, what do you suggest that Israel does?

Would you prefer that Israel simply turned the other cheek and let its people be slaughtered? Would you rather that Israel’s Iron Dome defense system was not as successful, so that an occasional missile landed in a heavily populated area and wiped out some Israelis? Read more...



Walmart Tests Low-Cost ‘Doc-In-A-Box’ Walk-In Clinics


Posted on July 23 - from Personal Liberty Digest

[Ed. note: When given half a chance, the American people come up with solutions to all sorts of problems created by overreaching government.

A small number of Walmart stores in the South are serving as laboratories for an idea the company hopes to expand throughout the Nation: low-cost, walk-in healthcare clinics that focus on minor medical needs, preventive treatments and management for chronic illnesses.

The clinics, simply called “Walmart Care Clinics,” will offer $40 walk-ins for anyone except the company’s own employees, who — so long as they participate in the company’s healthcare plan — can use the clinics for $4 per visit.

Depending on where you live, you may have already become accustomed to seeing some type of health clinic at the nearby Walmart. But until this year, all of the clinics inside those stores have been owned and operated by outside contractors who lease the space. This new experiment, on the other hand, is all Walmart.

Detroit police chief gives credit to armed citizens for drop in crime


Posted on July 21 - from Detroit News

[Ed. note: A police chief who knows his officers cannot be everywhere and understands that the people have some responsibility as well.

Fed up with crime, some armed Detroiters have developed itchy trigger-fingers — and Police Chief James Craig said lawbreakers are getting the message.

In the latest incident, police say an 88-year-old who was beaten and robbed inside his east side home last week probably thought he was defending himself against attackers when he opened fire Monday on a television news crew.

On Thursday, a woman appeared on his front porch asking for help, and when he opened his door, two men rushed in, assaulted him and tied him up with a phone cord before robbing him of several items. Read more...



Dealing With Clichés About Judging

Posted on July 18 - from BarbWire

[Ed. note: "Judge not that you be not judged" sounds biblical... but is it true?

Sadly much of what passes for biblical, theological and ethical reflection and talk nowadays consists of little more than bumper sticker clichés and sloganeering. People – even Christians – will dish out to you some tired saying or worn out cliché and think they have added something of substance to a discussion or debate.

I have already penned numerous articles about judging, in which I try to respond to some of the sloppy thinking and mushy moralizing about this topic. But it seems the need to think clearly and carefully about this matter keeps arising, so the need for more articles continues apace.

In addition to grossly abusing and misusing such texts as Matthew 7:1 (probably the most mangled and maligned passage in all the Bible), people will offer up quite unhelpful slogans which they think reflects the depths of the biblical understanding on this matter. Read more...



The War Against Our Natural Right Of Self-Defense Continues


Posted on July 17 - from ChuckBaldwinLive.com

[Ed. note: This is just one more way of creating dependency on those who are dependent upon our tax dollars to exist.

Proponents of the Nanny State have been trying to take away man’s Natural right of self-defense ever since the United Nations was created back in 1945. Of course, the Natural right of self-defense is totally unknown in communist and socialist countries; and big-government toadies in several so-called “democratic” countries have also succeeded in turning citizens into subjects by removing or severely restricting the Natural right of self-defense. Obviously, I’m talking about countries such as Great Britain, France, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada.

By self-defense, I am talking about a man’s right to carry a Personal Defense Weapon (PDW)--which, in modern times, mostly requires a firearm--anywhere and everywhere he goes. A state that does not allow a man to be personally armed in his day-to-day activities is literally stripping him of his right of self-defense. To require a citizen to keep his or her PDW in their home or vehicle is to deny the citizen’s Natural right of self-defense. To say a citizen may lawfully protect himself in only limited and duly-prescribed locations is to make the citizen a subject of the state. Furthermore, it removes from him the most fundamental of all the Natural rights that were granted to him by his Creator: the right of self-defense.

Four-legged predators are constantly on the prowl for animals that are defenseless. Two-legged predators do the same thing. These human predators do not respect “gun-free” zones. Like all predators, they are opportunistic beasts. They prey on the weak and vulnerable. When the state takes away a person’s right to be always armed, it makes the entire citizenry weak and vulnerable. As I have said many times, guns don’t kill people; gun-free zones kill people.

Why Islam’s Sharia Law is the Biggest Threat to American Safety


Posted on July 16 - from National Black Robe Regiment

[Ed. note: In a free market system, the only hairdressers and bartenders will be those who aspire to work in these roles—which will mean better looking haircuts and better tasting cocktails for the rest of us.

Former US Attorney General Mike Mukasey spoke recently at Temple Emanuel in Greensboro, North Carolina. “Isms all want to rid the world of something. Nazism wanted to rid the world of Jews. Communism wanted to rid the world of God. Islamism wants to rid the world of infidels – that is you,” said Mukasey.

Sharia (the “path) is Islamic law. According to most sources, including the Council on Foreign Relations, shariah is made up of rules that regulate every nook and cranny of life – worship, marriage and inheritance, criminal offenses, commerce and personal conduct. “It is derived primarily from the Quran and the Sunna—the sayings, practices, and teachings of the Prophet Mohammed.”

The bombings and shootings in the name of Islam, such as the Boston Marathon, Fort Hood, the “Underwear Bomber” and 911 are just one element of how sharia law calls Muslims to fight against those who do not accept their law. Read more...



Socialism Punk’d You, Millennials

Posted on July 16 - from the Truth Dispatch

[Ed. note: In a free market system, the only hairdressers and bartenders will be those who aspire to work in these roles—which will mean better looking haircuts and better tasting cocktails for the rest of us

"Here’s your drink, darling," the bartender said with a smile. He seemed upbeat as he made drinks and greeted customers. "Do you like your job?" I asked him. "I hate it," he confessed. "Honestly, I hate my job."

I keep running into young people who put on a show of being happy with their lives but, when probed a bit, quickly concede that their smiles mask trials. A few days ago, I met a young woman who told me she works as a hairdresser at two different salons while seeking work in her desired field. The next day, I met a young man who volunteers and bartends while searching for full-time work that utilizes his college degree.

Millennials are the most highly educated generation in American history. We have more diplomas and more student loan debt than our parents and grandparents did at our age. Over a third of Millennials (a 40-year-high) are living at home with their parents as they struggle to find jobs and pay off their student loan debt. It’s crucial that Millennials hear the truth about socialism so they can dig themselves out of this mess and move on with their lives. Read more...



America, the Bullied

Posted on July 15 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: Often the only way to deal with a bully is to stand up to him and refuse to be intimidated.

Perhaps it is because as a child, I witnessed Zaggy torturing chubby Butterball every morning at the school bus stop. Consequently, I have an extremely low tolerance for Leftists bullying Americans into submission and getting away with it.

Fear caused Butterball to endure daily humiliating facial slaps, punches and extortion of his lunch money. Frustrated for Butterball, I asked, “Why don't you hit Zaggy back?” Butterball replied, “He will beat me up”. My retort, “He is beating you up every day!”

One morning to the delight of us kids, Butterball, while crying his eyes out, went wild on Zaggy. Nothing seriously violent, but Zaggy was the one crying and afraid.

My fellow Americans, we are being bullied like never before by Leftists which include Obama and the MSM. We are being forced not only to tolerate, but embrace their liberal far-left radical socialist/progressive agenda. Their agenda is particularly hostile towards Christians, the unborn, American traditions and exceptional-ism. Noncompliance or opposing points of view are not tolerated; either total submission or suffer total destruction. Read more...



Immigration, Good Laws, and Liberty

Posted on July 15 - from the Federalist

[Ed. note: You get the immigrants—and the nation—you ask for.]

Two weeks ago, President Obama said he would act alone, if necessary, to alter immigration policy. Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, for one, reacted enthusiastically, suggesting the president might “borrow” the Congressional power necessary to get it done.

But last week, the president suggested (while fundraising in Dallas) that nothing could be done about the current border crisis without the House acting to approve his plans for “comprehensive immigration reform”—and an immediate $3.7 billion down payment to stem the current crisis.

The president, in other words, is willing to do Congress’s job (rewrite the law) but not his own (enforce the ones already on the books). And why not? The point in all this is to use whatever means available to pass his bill—presented as always, as a simple distillation of common sense and provisions for fair dealing that none but the wicked and ignorant could oppose.

Anti-Israel Demonstration Turns Into Mob Attack on Paris Synagogue, Trapping Worshipers Inside




Posted on July 14 - from the Blaze

[Ed. note: Still the Jews have no peace.]

Protesters decrying Israel’s military operation in Gaza tried to storm a synagogue in Paris on Sunday, trapping some 200 worshipers inside.

One Jewish leader compared the experience to Kristallnacht, while an eyewitness likened it to an “intifada” Palestinian uprising against Israel.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency news service reported that three Jews were taken to the hospital following the clashes, which erupted at the end of an anti-Israel march in which thousands had participated. Read more...



The Obama Alien Invasion:

Posted on July 11 - from Conservative News and Views

[Ed. note: We are to help the poor, but we are not called to allow those who come to take to destroy our ability to take care of our own families... if we fail to do that, we are told, we are worse than infidels.]

This afternoon at 3:00 p.m., Steve Elliot and Eric Odom of Grassfire hosted a teleconference for their supporters. This correspondent took part in that. Much of what they said, others have said before. Links are available for it, too. For instance:

The Obama administration uses a Clinton-era law, the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000. By that law, the Border Patrol may not deport any person, especially any minor traveling alone, who says he comes from a country other than Mexico. They may not even check that out. Congress passed that law to protect a specific class of minors. Sometimes certain nefarious adults will bring minors in as sexual slaves. This law protects them, so they will give evidence against their kidnappers. Similarly, the Border Patrol may not deport a woman with small children in tow. They might be fleeing from a bad husband/father who beat her/them.

Bill Clinton signed this bill into law in 2000. George W. Bush did renew it in 2002. According to Rush Limbaugh, the Obama administration calls this law “the Bush Law of 2002.” They not only hide Bill Clinton’s role in creating it. They also hide their own role in renewing it, as recently as last year. Read more...



Promoting Pedophilia

Posted on July 10 - from BarbWire

[Ed. note: What was once unacceptable and reviled has become accepted in some circles... even celebrated - and we wonder why our world if falling apart.]

The world has rightly been shocked over revelations that big name entertainers like Rolf Harris and Jimmy Savile have been found guilty of horrible child abuse crimes. But sadly this is really just the tip of the iceberg it seems. Not only is pedophilia an ongoing problem, but the worst bit is how many are actually trying to justify all this.

As much as some people want to live in dreamland here, the sad reality is this: there most certainly is a slippery slope in action here. The deniers can nay-say this all they like, but we have proof of this slope all over the place. Everywhere we look we see various sleazy sexualities being seriously promoted and defended.

And so much of this is due to the success of the homosexual lobby in pushing its agenda. Many others are emboldened by the wins of the homosexualists, and they too are now demanding their piece of the pie. They know quite rightly that the exact same arguments used for something like homosexual marriage can be used for things like group marriage, “intergenerational sex” and other radical sexual causes.

D’Souza’s ‘America’ Uncovers a Generation of Liberal Lies


Posted on July 9 - from B BarbWire

[Ed. note: A film worth watching to see the truth you won't find in too many places.]

One of the contributors of the American Prophet website submitted a critique of D’Souza’s film just days before its release. Along with other reports it was the impetus for my trip to the local theatre to see for myself what the buzz was all about. I am now convinced that much more than a mere buzz; D’Souza’s offering is a trumpet, which every American should see regardless of their race, political persuasion or national origin.

D’Souza has an advantage over almost any filmmaker in America today and he could not be a more perfect choice to make this film because he is an Indian-born immigrant whose love for this country was not biased by an education in U.S. schools where the curriculum has been carefully and unremittingly skewed to the left for an entire generation.

The film deals with generational lies that have slowly crept into the national dialogue, educational system and the political rhetoric of the left. The shear persistence of these lies and the willingness to lay these prevarications before an unsuspecting generation of our youth as ‘true history’ has fostered a kind of ‘new truth’ that after all is nothing but syncopated, syndicated, deliberate and dangerous lies meant to lead America into a day of self-loathing and inordinate guilt.

NSA Allowed to Spy On Pretty Much Anyone, Anywhere, Documents Reveal




Posted on July 8 - from Reason.com

[Ed. note: The law says one thing, but enterprising minds in both the criminal world and government find ways around constitutional restrictions.]

Ever since stories about the National Security Agency's (NSA) spying began pouring out last year, courtesy of Edward Snowden's release of classified information about the secretive intelligence agency, speculation has been rife about the extent of domestic surveillance, the legal parameters within which the NSA operates, and the degree to which it respects those parameters. Newly released documents suggest that limits on the NSA's authority to intercept communications are few, and the executive branch's interpretation of the NSA's jurisdiction doesn't limit surveillance to the far side of the nation's borders.

Specifically, the NSA is authorized to spy on 193 named countries, as well as a host of non-state organizations. And, it may be redirecting domestic communications outside the United States in order to "legalize" access to the data. Read more...



I'm A Conservative And They Lied When They Said I Hate You


Posted on July 7 - from TownHall.com

[Ed. note: It's a standing joke to hear the left say "It's George Bush's fault and you're a racist." The problem is that this just isn't so.]

Are you Hispanic, black, Asian, Jewish, gay, young, old, poor, or a woman? Well, then you may have heard that conservatives like me hate you. In fact, I'm sure you've probably heard some version of it a hundred times since it seems to be the standard rap for liberals these days. "Those conservatives are racists! They hate Hispanics! They're homophobes! They're Nazis! They're engaged in a war on women!"

You get the idea.

Well, first off, do you really think you can trust liberals to tell you what motivates conservatives? Can you REALLY trust Paul Krugman, Michael Moore, and your college professor who is railing about American imperialism and white privilege to tell you what people like me are thinking? Do you even believe they know in the first place and if they did, could you really trust them to give you an honest rundown of why conservatives disagree with them about pretty much everything under the sun?

Obviously, they're not exactly the best source about what conservatives really think and most conservatives find it a little insulting to talk about our "motivation" since it's always framed in "when did you stop beating your wife" terms. If you don't beat your wife, that's an offensive question. If you're not racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Semitic, etc., etc., it's offensive to be accused of it. Incidentally, while there are always exceptions, the overwhelming majority of conservatives aren't any of those things and, yes, they do get offended when they're falsely accused. Wouldn't you? So, why should they be any different? Read more...



Declaration of Independence

Posted on July 4 - from The Founding Fathers

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. Read more...



Court: Ground Zero Cross makes atheists sick? So what?


Posted on July 3 - from GOP USA

[Ed. note: The Becket Fund attorney argues that adults should be able to "see other people's beliefs, hear other people's expressions of belief, and not feel like they're being coerced."]

A previous U.S. Supreme Court decision on public prayer may thwart atheists' efforts to remove the famous steel-beam cross from the National September 11 Memorial Museum.

American Atheists, Inc. filed suit to keep the so-called Ground Zero Cross from being included in the museum, which opened in May.

The 17-foot-tall steel beam was found in the rubble of the World Trade Center towers after the 9-11 attacks, and it was erected at the scene and became a revered attraction.

But American Atheists, in its court filings, suggested that even the thought of it made them nervous and gave them an upset stomach. Read more...



Democrat Pastor Accuses Thad Cochran Campaign of Vote-For-Pay Scheme




Posted on July 2 - from Return of the Republic

[Ed. note: It should not have been done in the first place, but a man with a conscience appears to be trying to make things right. What do we do when one party is just as corrupt as the other?]

A black Mississippi pastor has emerged to claim Sen. Thad Cochran's (R-MS) campaign paid “thousands” of Democrats $15 each to vote in the June 24 GOP runoff – and that he was part of the scheme.

Rev. Stevie Fielder, an associate pastor at First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridan, Mississippi, says Cochran's campaign “told me to offer blacks $15 each and to vote for Thad.” Fielder, who was paid by freelance journalist Charles C. Johnson for the story, provided a new outlet launched by Johnson—GotNews.com—with four text messages from a person purporting to be Cochran campaign staffer Saleem Baird.

The messages cite an official Cochran campaign email address—Saleem@ThadForMs.com—and include detailed discussions of the campaign providing envelopes of money to distribute to people who vote.

“Send me individual names and amounts along with home address to saleem@thadforms.com and I’ll have money separated in envelopes at the office waiting for you,” one message, sent three days before the runoff, says. Read more...



What Do You Call Scientific Theory Based On Faked Data?


Posted on July 1 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: "Faked data", in other words, a lie! Keep in mind that they wouldn't tell us these things if they didn't want us to believe them.]

Busted, you call it busted. Any statement past that is simply asinine. But, don't worry my fellow inhabitants of the worker's paradise formerly reserved for the free and brave, I'm sure that the whole climate change grievance theater will continue on, as if nothing has changed. We'll still be bombarded with shouts of, "we have to self inflict economic hardship and damage now in order to save the Earth," or, "anyone who denies that climate change isn't real is just like someone who used to believe that the Earth was flat." Let's not forget my personal favorite, "anyone who denies climate science should be imprisoned for their heresy."

That picture above? Oh, that's just what happens when you try to reconcile the actual temperature data with the new and improved faked temperature data the NOAA and NASA peddled to American Citizens in order to make it appear as though the Earth's mean temperatures were indeed rising. O.K., we'll let that last bit sink in for just one moment.

Right after the year 2000, NASA and NOAA dramatically altered US climate history, making the past much colder and the present much warmer. The animation below shows how NASA cooled 1934 and warmed 1998, to make 1998 the hottest year in US history instead of 1934. This alteration turned a long term cooling trend since 1930 into a warming trend. Read more...



Obama Vows To Handle Immigration Reform On His Own


Posted on July 1 - from Personal Liberty Digest

[Ed. note: “The president’s own executive orders have led directly to the humanitarian crisis along the southern border, giving false hope to children and their families that if they enter the country illegally they will be allowed to stay.”]

President Barack Obama, reportedly giving up on the prospect of Congressional immigration reform, announced Monday that he plans he plans to use executive actions to deal with the tide of illegal immigrants flowing over the U.S.’s southern border.

“If Congress will not do its job, at least we can do ours,” Obama said from the White House Rose Garden.

The President said that unilateral action was necessary, claiming that Republican lawmakers were afraid to stand up to the Tea Party faction of the GOP and address the immigration issue.

“While I will continue to push Republicans to drop excuses and act,” Obama said, “Americans cannot wait forever for them to act.”

“I don’t prefer taking administrative action,” the President also said. “I’ve made that clear multiple times … I only take executive action when we have a serious problem, a serious issue and Congress chooses to do nothing.” Read more...
