  • Mosque Weapon Seizure Called Discriminatory [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 14 Feb 2016 | John Semmens
    Raids by French authorities have resulted in the confiscation of hundreds of war-grade weapons from numerous mosques throughout the country. The raids were inspired by the November 13th Islamic terrorist attack that killed 130 people in Paris. The raids were denounced as discriminatory by Imam Aliki Kilyu. "We would never see the government raiding churches and confiscating crucifixes," he complained. "By singling out the holy places of Muslims for their intrusions these kafirs have disrespected the beliefs of Islam." Kilyu rebuffed contentions that crucifixes and weapons cannot be compared. "Christians are the ones who believe in turning the other cheek....
  • Per the Pope, I guess it is official: Putin's Russia is now the defender of Christendom

    Pope Francis if the first Rome and Patriarch Kirill of the third Rome are to release a joint declaration to touch on the single most important issue of shared concern between the Catholic and Orthodox churches today: the plight of Christians in Iraq and Syria and Africa who are being killed and driven from their homes by Islamists. I guess that makes Putin's Russia the defacto defender of Christendom. Two Romes have fallen, but the third stands, and a fourth there will not be." The Russian Monk Philotheus c. 1520 I have not seen the declaration yet to post it...

    The wide and deep reform of Wisconsin Knife law, signed into law by Governor Scott Walker, went into effect on 7 February this year. At the signing ceremony, the Governor and others were given commemorative automatic knives. The inscription on the Pro-Tech TR-4 includes the Wisconsin Seal, Governor Scott Walker's name, and a commemoration of the event. Representative Kathleen Bernier, Senator Terry Moulton and Travis Hakes, a peace officer who suggested the reform to Representative Bernier, all received Hogue EX-A01 automatic knives to commemorate the occasion. Laws in Wisconsin do not go into effect immediately. They have to be...

At different points in the address, which probably few people saw, Edwards said "nor would we falsely claim 'the sky is falling,'" "I don't say this to scare you," and "These are not scare tactics."

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 2/11/2016 | Tom Gantert
    In 2014, the West Bloomfield School District was pressing to have two operating millages renewed. As part of the campaign, the district gave a writing assignment to 700 children in grades two through five: Write letters encouraging residents to vote, which the district would use in a pre-election mailing. According to the school district, the fifth-graders were told to write longer letters encouraging a vote, and warned to avoid the terms “vote for” or “vote against” in their text. Doing so would be considered “express advocacy,” which at the time was the only legal restriction on taxpayer-funded electioneering by public...

    One of the more maddening elements of our political debate is how both sides view the individual, and how they treat them. Conservative ideals are based on individual responsibility, and in turn the state showing respect for that individual. On the flip side, as we saw in our last chapter, the Radical Left despises the individual, and will always put the state ahead of individual rights1. What's maddening is how despite their contempt for the individual, the Radical Left does an outstanding job of exploiting personal stories to push their agenda, while the side that puts respect for the...

    As the battle for the Republican nomination for president shifts to South Carolina, all wings of the GOP, establishment and tea party conservative, are wrestling with the existential problem of how to stop Donald Trump. Trump, who won a convincing victory in New Hampshire, threatens to run the table by racking up enough wins to quickly amass enough delegates to lock down the nomination. The Club for Growth, an economic conservative group, has launched one of the first shots with an ad that attacks Trump’s conservatism and his character.

I thought I knew all about the processes, twists and turns of the political jungle. How wrong I was!

    Obama can be relied upon to support Clinton. The Red Dragon of Socialism-Communism errs on the side of top-political level state planning of industries beyond the technical compentencies of its state-terror/secret-police, it gets lost in ensuring the prerogatives of its party elites. Fascism (Gates, Buffett, Soros, Rockefeller, Ford, Roth Schild, Midas, Croesus, et. al...Koch Bros. are chump-changers), errs on the side of ruthless efficieny and economy of scale, reducing people to the status of machines, but Hitler was proof that even the Black Dragon eventually strays off its original mission to feather the beds of elites.

    Bernie Sanders placed second in the Iowa caucus, edged out by .6% and a half dozen suspicious coin flips by the Hillary camp. He then crushed Hillary in New Hampshire. Though I believe electing either would be a mistake, Bernie Sanders is of the greatest concern to me. Bernie Sanders is a Communist who admits to being a Democratic Socialist, a term that has little if any meaning to most people. Socialism as a pure definition means the control of all production by a central government. It has been a massively destructive failure everywhere it has been tried. Democratic Socialists...

    Part of the Donald Trump appeal is that he is a great businessman, and he certainly has taken his dad's business and grown it to big heights. But Trump is less of a business manager, and more of a marketing genius-a PT Barnum. He knows what to say and do to promote. It's why he is leading in the polls, and why he gets all the free airtime from the media. His record as a COO/Manager, etc. is uneven. He has built businesses and he has destroyed them, as witnessed by his four bankruptcies. The Donald will correctly say he...

    Aero Precision's M5E1 is an evolutionary improvement on the basic AR-10 theme. The Aero Precision M5E1 is a logical development from their more basic M5 .308 autoloading rifle. It is positioned as a firearm that's practical in the field, yet more accurate and capable of sustained fire than typical hunting or defense rifles. The main upgrade is the strengthened receiver designed to give monolithic-rail effects without its logistical disadvantage, namely the difficulty of changing the forend. The area where the free-floated hand guard and the barrel attach to the receiver has been beefed up relative to the typical AR-10-style guns....

Environmentalists have been pushing utility companies to stop using coal, while low natural gas prices have led many utilities to switch to that cleaner burning and now cheaper fuel as a power source. In an effort to please environmentalist supporters after his election to a second term, the Obama Administration put in place what might be a death sentence for coal mining east of the...

Some form of the bill has been introduced since 2000, but the measure has never been controversial until presidential campaign politics intervened. What the measure does is expand who can use Coverdell education savings accounts by clarifying that for the purpose of Coverdell expenses only, the...

The stream of racist bile from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar directed toward the Dallas Mavericks’ future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki is a handy example of this. When asked about Nowitzki’s shot, Jabbar launched into a stupid and unsupportable racist attack on Nowitzki’s accomplishments as an NBA player. “You asked about Dirk Nowitzki. Dirk Nowitzki’s shot is very hard to block, but I don’t think that he was able to have a dominant career because he couldn’t do...
  • The Story Behind Iraq’s Iran-backed Shiite militias

    The situation in Iraq, rendered through Iran's lethal meddling, has left the region and the world facing grave dangers. The only solution lies in taking solid action against Iran-backed Shiite militias as the other side of the ISIS coin. As the international coalition in Iraq may be tightening their grip over ISIS, another very dangerous phenomenon spiraling out of control are the Iran-backed Shiite militias roaming freely on killing sprees across Mesopotamia. This is a dire menace called Islamic extremism that can threaten the very fabric of this once iconic cradle of humanity. True is the undeniable fact that ISIS...
  • Trump may be Citizen Kane, but not Lonesome Rhodes

    An apt comparison is actually cinematic classic Citizen Kane, a man whose vast wealth fueled an even bigger ego, an obsessive need for public adoration and, like Trump, a birthright entitlement to high elective office Marc Fisher’s Washington Post comparison of Donald Trump to 1957s A Face in the Crowd fictional movie character Larry “Lonesome” Rhodes, an anti-hero played brilliantly by Andy Griffith, is a superficial one at best. University of Pennsylvania Ivy Leaguer, Mr. Trump may be a showman in the vein of P.T. Barnum—a candid, uncensored, larger than life presentation style like Rhodes—but the billionaire is no folksy...

    Don't do it this wayThe method you see here are not gold standard of what you should do, this video is bordering on the "ultimate" of what you should absolutely NOT do if you find yourself in this situation. Not much is known about where this video was shot, and if this was their trap or if they were illegally tampering with another trapper’s set, but one thing is for sure, the guy who joins the bobcat release party right at the end has never seen what a bobcat can do when it's angry. Check out the video here.

    Dead men walking toward a certain tragic end While 111.9 million viewers, making it the third most-watched television event in U.S. history, were watching the Super Bowl—a perfect captive audience for Beyonce’s halftime political tribute to Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panthers, this is what the strong arm of the government was doing. In the U.S. government agencies were getting ready to impose solitary confinement on all 16 participants in the Oregon standoff, held in custody with no criminal charges laid against them. Even most terrorists are spared solitary confinement. But Islamic terrorists have free reign over civilians,...

    Wednesday, February 10, 2016 How Iran Took Obama Hostage Posted by Daniel Greenfield Obama and his political allies seek normalization with Iran. They are unconcerned with Iran’s nuclear weapons programs or its support for terrorism and they are willing to provide fig leaves for these and other threats by the Shiite terror state to the United States and to the rest of the free world. Iran, however, is looking to escalate its conflict with the United States. Perversely, normalization is the best strategy for escalating a conflict with the United States while extracting maximum benefit from it. Without normalization, Iran...

    Carly dropped out of the Presidential sweepstakes yesterday with this message: To young girls and women across the country, I say: do not let others define you. Do not listen to anyone who says you have to vote a certain way or for a certain candidate because you're a woman. That is not feminism. Feminism doesn't shut down conversations or threaten women. It is not about ideology. It is not a weapon to wield against your political opponent. A feminist is a woman who lives the life she chooses and uses all her God-given gifts. And always remember that a...

    .... Steinem’s polished humanitarian mask had slipped, revealing the mummified fascist within. I’m sure that my delight was shared by other dissident feminists everywhere. Never before has the general public, here or abroad, more clearly seen the arrogance and amoral manipulativeness of the power elite who hijacked and stunted second-wave feminism ....
  • Gun 'buyback' Transfers Guns to Legal Market, uses Funds to get more Guns 'off the streets'

    02/11/2016 5:17:41 AM PST · by marktwain · 22 replies
    Photo courtesy of Charles Tassell I have often written that gun turn in programs, also known by the propaganda term 'gun buy back' (you cannot 'buy back' a gun you never owned), would benefit by including private buyers so that more guns could be purchased from people who do not want them, and the proceeds recycled into more gun turn ins. The program would then be self sustaining and perpetual, serving to give people who do not want guns an easy way to legally dispose of them, while saving valuable resources and directing the guns into the legal market....

    It’s been another spectacular week for the Pentagon. From US Navy sailors crying in front of their Iranian captors to Pentagon climate change mandates and the Draft our Daughters bill proposed by Congressman Duncan Hunter, the US military is being tossed to and fro inside a White House snow globe. Our new best friend forever, Iran, released several pictures yesterday of an unidentified US Navy sailor bawling his head off like a overweight woman confessing her cookie eating disorder to Marie Osmond and Oprah. Seated next to the crying sailor was his commander, the Once and Future Chief of Naval...
