    GOP Date With Demographic Destiny By Government Design By MARK STEYN Posted 11/16/2012 06:45 PM ET To an immigrant such as myself (not the undocumented kind, but documented up to the hilt, alas), one of the most striking features of election night analysis was the lightly worn racial obsession. On Fox News, Democrat Kirsten Powers argued that Republicans needed to deal with the reality that America is becoming what she called a "brown country." Her fellow Democrat Bob Beckel observed on several occasions that if the share of the "white vote" was held down below 73% Romney would lose. In...

    Rep. Allen West’s campaign has singled out a controversial St. Lucie County elections supervisor for special condemnation in one of the closest congressional races in the country. West’s campaign has pointed to a number of irregularities coming from the office of Gertrude Walker. But while the focus is on current irregularities, The Blaze has discovered her past is even more intriguing......

    “The center of the Corn Belt, now in Iowa, will move south to Kansas,” says Archibald. Using solar and surface data, David Archibald, polymath, makes a bold prediction that temperatures are about to dive sharply (in the decadal sense). He took the  forgotten correlation that as solar cycles lengthen and weaken, the world gets cooler. He refined it into a predictive tool, tested it and published in 2007. His paper has been expanded on recently by Prof Solheim in Norway, who predicts a 1.5°C drop in Central Norway over the next ten years.See entire article from January of this year....
  • White House says did not heavily edit talking points on Benghazi

    White House says did not heavily edit talking points on Benghazi ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE | Sat Nov 17, 2012 11:25am EST (Reuters) - The White House did not heavily alter talking points about the attacks on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya, an official said on Saturday. "If there were adjustments made to them within the intelligence community, that's common, and that's something they would have done themselves," Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser, told reporters. "The only edit ... made by the White House was the factual edit as to how to refer to the facility." After a...
  • Cyber attack reporting site, Anyone? (Vanity)

    Wife's bank card was denied use yesterday. Bank said their on line service was not working. I suggested Iran was mounting a cyber attack due to the war footings around Israel. Wife said I was paranoid. I did find a September article (FreeBeacon.com/iran-cyber-attacks-step-up) about Iran cyber attacking banks. Officials tried to blame The Video LOL but the article said it was Iran being upset about sanctions. Article said attacks were ongoing. Any Freepers know of a good website that reports current cyber attacks?

    At the Battle of Chosin Reservoir during the Korean Conflict, Marine Colonel (later Lt. General) Chesty Puller told his men "We've been looking for the enemy for some time now. We've finally found him. We're surrounded. That simplifies things." We're surrounded too and that may simplify things for us as well. Chesty puller Colonel Puller's First Battalion of the First Marine Division, along with many thousands of other allied troops sent deep into North Korea to chase the North Korean forces to and across the Chinese border, had been placed in a nearly impossible situation. General Douglas MacArthur, the Supreme...

    A PICTURE YOU WILL NEVER SEE… …on BBC or CNN. Found on Twitter’s #Gaza hashtag, the photo below of “Isareli soldiers helping Palestinian kids escape the rockets from Gaza.” Found on the IDF Twitter feed, the video below depicts life in southern Israel under fire of the rockets that have rained down from Gaza: “Over the past 12 years, the residents of southern Israel have suffered over 12,000 rockets fired at them from the Gaza Strip. This is what their life has looked like over the years.” I think it’s safe to say you won’t be seeing this brief video...

    A Great Neck man was shot dead inside of his Brooklyn boutique last night — and cops matched the ballistics to a pair of murders this summer that sources believe were based on numbers in the business address, sources said. Vahidipour Rahmatollah, 78, was pronounced dead after cops discovered him in the back of She She Boutique on Flatbush Avenue after being shot in the head three times with a .22-caliber gun, as well as once in the torso, sources said.

    This week financial news organization CNBC gave some mainstream attention to the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History, in which “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners are being accused of laundering of 43 trillion dollars worth of ill gotten gains.The lawsuit is said to involve officials located in the highest offices of government and the financial sector.Since this information was surprisingly revealed by the mainstream news organization there has been a very suspicious and deadly fallout at the CNBC headquarters.Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and CNBC senior vice president Kevin...

    During the time of the seven year tribulation period the godless gentile world will be seeking the complete annihilation and destruction of the Jews, the nation of Israel and Almighty God's Two Witnesses and messengers (Zech. 14:2, Dan. 9:27, Rev. 11:3-6, 12:6-17; 13:7 17:14). It will be also during the first half of the "seven year tribulation" (after the Rapture) that countless Muslims from Egypt, Libya, Turkey, Syria, Gaza, Lebanon, Jordon, Iraq, Iran etc. will come to a SAVING KNOWLEDGE of the Messiah of Israel by the preaching and teaching of the Two Witnesses of Israel (i.e., MOSES and ELIJAH)....

    With no time to recover from a thorough election day whooping, Republicans in a lame duck Congress are facing an even worse budgetary nightmare than last year. And they only have two months to negotiate a solution with President Obama. Last time, as the Chair the Balanced Budget Amendment campaign, fellow conservatives and I were urging Republicans to tie the unavoidable increase in the debt ceiling to a balanced budget amendment. Because it also prohibited tax increases, the amendment would have required balance to be achieved through necessary cuts throughout the federal government. But in the end, politicians did what...
  • Reassessing the Presidency

    Now that Hillsdale's lecture series Constitution 201 has concluded, I would like to just take a short moment to point out another series that has some segments similar to what Hillsdale presented. I initially came across this by doing research into the work of one of Hillsdale's professors, Richard M. Gamble. In The Mises series "Reassessing the Presidency", Gamble lays out very similar concepts about Woodrow Wilson as you saw in Constitution 201, or as you will find in my archives. So far I have only listened to the sections regarding Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt. Both of these sections appear...

    A black Christian Obama voter called me after the election. For years, I have informed him of Obama's attacks on Christianity and anti-Christian agenda. He praised Romney for saying in his concession speech that we need to pray for our president. Then he added, “I prayed that God will bind everything in Obama that is not like Him.” Folks I politely, but quickly, ended our conversation. I was sickened by my friend's weak attempt to cover his sell-out to skin-color under a shroud of Christian principles. This guy had the audacity to quote Bible scripture about how Christians are commanded...

    At Yale University, you can be prevented from putting an F. Scott Fitzgerald quote on your T-shirt. At Tufts, you can be censured for quoting certain passages from the Quran. Welcome to the most authoritarian institution in America: the modern university—"a bizarre, parallel dimension," as Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, calls it.

    Congressman Ron Paul has just delivered his valedictory address in the House of Representatives. And he has told TV interviewers that the American Revolution was a wonderful example of secession. He's a much better OB/GYN, I'm sure, than he is a student of America's history. He could be cited for political malpractice. If the Founding Fathers and the Patriots who fought and won the Revolution were seceding, why is it that none of them ever called it secession? They certainly had the word back then. They invoked the well-known right of revolution. They had read their John Locke and their...

    Smoke has been used to mask the movement of military units to disorient or drive off attackers. In politics smoke screens are something said or done in order to hide the truth. The Petraeus scandal with the smoke provided by the liberal main stream media has redirected attention away from the murders of Americans in Benghazi. Scandal The surprised resignation of CIA director David Petraeus and the sideshow it created was the perfect smoke screen this administration needed. The continuous revelations created the drama that keeps the loyal Obama audience entertained. It has the sex, drama, and the execution of...

    It's true that the "good old days" weren't always good, but we should also remember that our belief that we're completely superior to previous generations of Americans doesn't even remotely square with reality. It's fine to pat ourselves on the back for being wealthier, more educated and considerably less racist than we used to be, but we shouldn't lose sight of the fact that those less educated, backward people in their antiquated clothes were head and shoulders better than we are in a myriad of other ways. We should remember that the real problem isn't having a problem; it's having...
