    I would like to know more about the Government Program through the ATF that is called, “Project Gun Runner!” According to the news program that I saw Congressman Brilbray, Senator Grasley from Iowa, and Congressman Issa who is the head of the Government Oversight Committee from California, found out that the ATF is selling guns and munitions to the Mexican Drug Cartels!!!!!!!!!!!!! They have tracked via Serial Numbers 195 weapons to 195 Crime Scenes “INCLUDING” the shooting of a Border Patrol agent here in Arizona named Brian Terry!! One of the guns found had a serial number that was tracked...

    Good morning! There are seventeen months left until we retake the country, until November 2012. As far as I know Caligula is the only one who has declared for the RATS. The GOP field is shaping up with many contenders. Sarah Palin is on a JERK THE MEDIA AROUND bus tour in the Northeast and elsewhere to call attention to America's founding documents and our founding fathers and principles. She has promised her radio talk friends in Alaska that she would tell them first of her decision to run. That hasn't happened yet. And in the hypocriscy department, Caligula's administration...

    (mods - excerpt from AP story) ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Five Army Rangers stationed in Washington state have summited North America's highest mountain. Army officials say the soldiers reached the 20,320-foot summit of Mount McKinley in Alaska Friday night, just in time to for the Memorial Day weekend. The Rangers - assigned to 2d Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment at Joint Base Lewis-McChord - made the climb in honor of the 11 Rangers from their regiment who have died in the line of duty. At McKinley's summit, the soldiers planted a flag from 2/75 with the names of the 11.

    If you don’t know a hero in a close and personal way, and Memorial Day is an abstract observation of those who sacrificed, I would like to introduce you to one that reminds me every day of what this day is for. Jacob Tate is my personal hero; a fun loving, church going high school kid turned U.S. Marine, my son’s best friend, and a newlywed Dad with a gorgeous little boy. Tate had the pleasure of watching the little guy, his first, grow inside his young wife. He got to see an ultrasound picture or two, but he never...

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates warned on Tuesday that policymakers would face tough choices trimming military budgets, weighing cuts in pay and benefits against delays in updating aging ships and jets. The outgoing defense secretary, who leaves office at the end of June, did not say where he thought the Pentagon should try to cut as it seeks to meet President Barack Obama's goal of cutting $400 billion in spending over the next 12 years.

    Hello, my name is Ann Barnhardt and I am the person who says the things that everyone else is too terrified to say. This is the speech that I was going to deliver in Boston today, May 15, 2011 had a facility been available to me. Unfortunately, no facilities were willing to host my speech, sponsored by Rabbi Jon Hausmann, because I was deemed to be “hateful”, “bigoted” and “potentially violent”. Well, we’ll see about that. In this speech we are going to cover a lot of intellectual and theological ground. I tend to set my goals extremely high, and...

    Here's a show where the big boys who do displays for cities come to compete, try out new shells, and get tuned up for the 4th of July. Last year's show was the best fireworks display I've ever seen. They shot off 55000+ shells, and then a BUNCH more big 10 & 12" mortars! It went for an hour and 45 minutes! (They only stopped to let the smoke clear.) Here are a few short youtubes from last year: This cameraman is a motor-mouth, but check out the length and depth of the firing line!

    As a typical scheming politician, Obama had no choice but to authorize Bin Laden's killing. If he hadn't, the news would have leaked out that Obama the White House Muslim didn't have the balls to ice a fellow muslim and his next job would be as a janitor (which is all he is qualified to be). This scumbag is like all other scumbags, they will do whatever it takes to stay in power because they have no other skills that would qualify them for a real job. Tough decision to go after Bin Laden...NO, this guy's toughest decision is whether...

    Did anyone else hear NBC's Brian Williams sign-off their live coverage by calling OBL death a "victim of a U.S.-led raid." ? Some post a Youtube link if they have it. There's no way he can say that's being an "impartial journalist" about that statement. How does he still have a job?

    Talk about your proverbial can of worms. Clearly, Barack Hussein Obama's Immigration file was the impetus for President Obama to release his "long form" last week. If he thought that would put the matter to rest, it has had the opposite effect. It has all raised more questions than it answered, as does the release of shocking revelations in BHO I's immigration file. Clearly, BHO I was never divorced from his first wife in Kenya. Further, INS suspected the BHO I/Stanley Ann Dunham marriage was a sham, arranged strictly to secure immigration status for him. But if Barack Senior was...

    No wonder so many people are confused, or ignorant, about this subject and its Constitutional importance relative to Presidential eligibility. This first link - http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/PlaceR - is a 9 min. interview with Peter Spiro, a Temple University law professor, by the day's cspan moderator. Listen to the questions and his answers. Sheesh. Here's another link to the Washington Journal segment that followed, with call-ins and emails, titled, "Should U.S. presidents be 'natural born' citizens?" http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/OpenPhones7290 Should? Should??? Folks, this is what we're up against - ignorance, misinformation, apathy or a combination thereof.

    1. The era of liberalism is over. Today there are no liberals in power; there are only radical leftists. They are the enemy, not the opposition. Their ideology is not simply wrong; it is evil. 2. It is impossible to be too cynical about the intentions, motives, and truthfulness of radical leftists. They will always exceed our most horrifying expectations. 3. Radical leftists are continually seeking to destroy America's historic foundations, particularly our Constitution. Their goal is to rebuild upon the rubble according to their own evil vision and to gratify their insatiable lust for tyrannical power. 4. Radical leftists...

    The “Owl” Hoots each week about events that Ruffles his Feathers. Say you saw the “Owl” comment on this weeks ago…now the mainstream media and the alphabet TV channels are commenting on the price of gas at the pump, which reportedly hit $5.69 per gallon this week in Orlando, Florida. Of course they headlined it as being a serious threat to the Presidents re-election campaign. That of course raises two germane notions: Firstly, most Americans are far more interested in him addressing this problem than worrying about him being re-elected and Secondly, who is so naïve to believe he won’t...

    501c3 Cowards Oh, say can you see, in the rapidly decaying twilight, Today’s churches throughout America cowering in fright. So easily selling away what is their God given birthright! How can they surrender their proud American heritage? They once fueled the fires of freedom in patriots galore, Triumphing o’er tyranny establishing a nation to adore. Their leadership once shined as brightly as any sage of lore! How can they dishonor their God’s glorious heritage? His church built with martyrs’ blood their duty to preserve, What of their oaths of loyalty and all they pledged to observe? How easily they...

Ever responsive to constituent clamor, or so he claims, he also has a perfect reason for doing so. All he needs to do is convene a Congressional Committee to inquire into several issues:(1) The Birth Certificate(2)The "Legal Name" Issue(3)The Illinois Bar Issues(4)The Illegal Campaign Lottery Issue(5)The Lt.

    In the 1700s, the courtesans of Queen Catherine of Russia gave her tours along the Volga river where she witnessed a happy and thriving bourgeoisie living in clean and prosperous villages. But this was all a show to cover disease, poverty, and misery that lay just behind the facade that had been erected for her benefit. This is the origin of the phrase Potemkin Village, a place where a politically generated appearance covers a less impressive underside. Europe is today filled with Potemkin Villages, none as successful as Denmark. Denmark is often cited as an exemplary country within the EU,...
