  • Bill Ayers: Left Wing Somehow Duped into Believing Obama Was a Leftist

    Mediaite ^ | 11-26-13 | Andrew Kirell
    According to radical activist and Weather Underground co-founder Bill Ayers, American leftists were duped by prevailing conservative narratives into believing that President Obama himself was a tried-and-true leftist, and not the “middle-of-the-road” politician he declares himself to be. Speaking at a Washington, D.C., book store last Friday, Ayers explained that despite living near Obama in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood and crossing paths many times during their activism, he never viewed the future president as a dedicated “leftist” like himself. The remarks came in response to a question about whether Ayers ever doubted Obama’s credentials as a true “progressive” or “man...

    The Reichstag Fire of 27 February, 1933 When we described the aftermath of Turkey's failed, and painfully disorganized military coup attempt, we asked rhetorically, "Who wins?" To which we answered: "Why Erdogan of course. As he said during a press conference upon his arrival back in Istanbul in the early Saturday morning hours, the coup is an opportunity to "to purge the military." Erdogan also vowed to exact "the highest price" from the perpetrators. Or, to summarize, the military said Erdogan's power consolidation justifies the attempted coup; Erdogan said the coup justifies further consolidation of power." Overnight, when analyzing the...

    Globalist elite cooperation can defeat the “chronic violence” that is caused by real jihadism in France and supposed racism in police forces, President Barack Obama told a roomful of foreign ambassadors July 15. “Overnight in Nice [France], we witnessed another tragic and appalling attack on the freedom and the peace that we cherish … [and] it’s been a difficult several weeks in the United States,” Obama told the ambassadors gathered in the White House. After mentioning the Nice attack and hinting at the police engagements, Obama sketched out his demand for globalist fix for the “chronic violence” that he says...

    In a war first, Syrian allies Russia and Iran have begun unleashing “suicide” drones that land and explode, presenting another challenge to rebels trying to oust the regime of president Bashar Assad. AP reported on Thursday that a Russian-owned broadcasting company is flying drones over the capital of Damascus, and its video shows the utter destruction of Rebel-held neighborhoods by Syrian government bombardment. The opposition news agency Syria Mubasher reported that six remotely controlled drones struck near fighters for Ahrar al-Sham, killing and wounding them, near the western city of Ma’ara al-Nuiman. Ahrar al-Sham is an al Qaeda-linked coalition that...

    Sara Domaradzka had just escaped her family's burning two-flat in Portage Park early Tuesday when her dog Bambi scrambled out of her arms and raced back into the flames. Her family believes the 4-year-old terrier-Labrador mix knew Domaradzka's 69-year-old father was still in the home and went back after him. "She ran back into the house to find (Sara's) dad, and then they both got stuck there," said Domaradzka's boyfriend, Alessandro Mininni. Firefighters arrived at the home on the 5100 block of West Grace Street around 1:30 a.m. and carried out Piotr Domaradzka, who did not have any vital signs....

Dunagan held this secret closely during his tenure as a tough and seasoned drill sergeant, but has always...

    The start of bow-hunting season has prompted an outrage in the Suffolk County community of Kings Park. As CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported exclusively Thursday, residents are upset that bow-hunting is being allowed closer to homes inside a recently-renovated nature trail. Bow-hunter Scott Trafas was readying his bow Thursday, and deer along the Kings Park trail would be well advised to run. It is mating season for the animals, and for Trafas, it’s time to hunt. “We need to control the deer population,” Trafas said. “I mean, people complain that deer run out, and they’re in the road, and they’re...

"I stepped out a side door, and we saw each other, and he started coming closer. "He was pummeling me, standing on his hind legs and hitting me with the front ones. He hammered me good, rapid fire, and I thought, `Well, this isn't good.' I wasn't winning, so I grabbed him and tackled him and we both went down on the ground."

The deer were likely killed Sunday night, said neighbor Randy Lantz, 54. “It’s bizarre,” Lantz said. After neighbors found the deer Monday and called authorities, a Kenosha County Sheriff's deputy on Tuesday went out to the rural field located near Salem, Wis., about 5 miles from the Illinois border, and found the six dead deer lying in a circle with another one a distance away. In the center of the group of six...

California Department of Fish and Game spokesman Patrick Foy told the Appeal-Democrat that a game warden "just about fell out of his chair" when he saw Nugent kill an immature buck on an episode of "Spirit of the Wild," Nugent's hunting show on the Outdoor Channel, which aired earlier this year.

    Reporting from Washington - The Obama administration is releasing a major statement on nuclear weapons policy that will herald a further shrinking of the U.S. arsenal, even as it rejects some sweeping steps advocated by arms control advocates. The statement, to be released Tuesday, will announce that the arsenal will shrink by thousands of warheads, and it will further restrict when the weapons may be used, U.S. officials say. But the administration has rejected proposals to declare that the "sole purpose" of nuclear arms is deterrence, nor will it promise that the United States won't be the first to use...

Donald Leopold explained that "climate change isn't eliminating species, only moving their ranges." Deer overpopulation, on the other hand, does eliminate other species, he noted. "No other real or perceived threat is so pervasive throughout the entire state, nor eliminates the majority, if not all, of the understory of natural communities, greatly reducing the diversity of our natural communities and the function of these communities," Leopold explained.

So when residents discovered nearly 40 of the animals had been killed and left to rot in the surrounding woods, they reacted with horror.

I let him try several shots with my 280-gr arrows, then we checked speed with his own arrows vs the HC arrows; it was 275 fps vs 324 fps. That's pretty substantial. Misjudge distance by five yards out past 25 yards and that's the difference between being an inch off and missing the deer and never finding the arrow. The bow...

    There are 1.6 million deer in Pennsylvania, so many that they are eating themselves out of forests, farms and parts of their home range. The voracious herd has prevented tree regrowth in vast tracts of the commonwealth's commercially valuable hardwood forests, eats millions of dollars of farm crops and collides with thousands of cars and trucks, causing damage and death. Yet there aren't enough deer for some hunters, who aren't seeing as many through their rifle scopes as they did a couple of years ago. Those hunters now want the state to go back to rules that would put greater...

    A little over five years ago, I was driving back to Minneapolis with my friend Dick after a May fishing trip in north central Minnesota. As we headed south on Highway 64 through a pleasing mix of swamp, forest, and farmland, a white-tailed deer appeared in the middle of the highway. It just stood there, motionless in the dusky fog. With no chance to swerve or brake, we plowed squarely into the animal. Neither Dick nor I was injured. The car--my grandmother's wheezy old Plymouth Horizon--was less fortunate. After climbing out to survey the damage, the first thing I noticed...

The results may implicate another suspect in the death of Christine Schultz, her ex-husband's first wife. "I need to clear my name for my sake and that of my family who have suffered with me during the past 21 years," Bembenek,...
