    With the horrific murders in Paris, there is renewed conversation about the lack of human intelligence concerning these savages. If you've wondered why there have been failures in that area, this is a good time to republish some of that background! DB 11/16/2015 The INSANITY of the TERRORIST ATTACKS we are now experiencing – and will cost many, many more American civilian lives -- can be laid at the feet of earlier DEMOCRATS!

    Irwin Schiff, imprisoned for his resistance to the federal income tax, died yesterday (10/16/2015). Efforts by his son, the noted financial commentator Peter Schiff, to secure his release from prison so that he could die with his family were unsuccessful. Schiffs sad passing illustrates an essential truth about the state: if you resist its orders, you will be dealt with by force. ************* Personal comment: R.I.P., Irwin. I sat at Irwin's table -- and snapped this photo -- at the Tupper Saussy pretrial rally in Chattanooga years ago. The man was a patriot and a fighter for justice while receiving...

    The Strident Conservative ^ | October 14, 2015 | Nelson Hultberg
    In the early days of mans history, tyranny was ideologically crude and built upon openly seizing power and suppression of the people. Not a lot of fancy theories were trotted out to justify it. Men like Akhenaten, Attila, Genghis Khan, Henry VIII, and Cesare Borgia ruled because they were brazen enough to want to rule, strong enough to recruit the needed henchmen, and smart enough to know that most people would let them be dictatorial. But with the coming of modernity (circa 1800 A.D.), tyranny has had to take on a more subtle and sophisticated approach. It now needs to...

    Every day brings us closer to what I'm convinced will be a VERY UGLY time in what remains of America, the IDEA! The "progressives" (aka "communists") will continue pushing until they provoke a reaction from those who still remember what freedom was. As was the case in 1775, the flash point will almost certainly be a thrust to seize private firearms and related items. It is then that we will see what their plans are for those MILLIONS OF ROUNDS of ammunition and thousands of weapons now in the hands of previously UNARMED bureaucracies. Oh, did I mention that millions...

    At risk of being tagged a one trick pony, I submit for your consideration a 30 minute video dealing with the impact of virtually unrestrained muslim immigration on Germany. It's in German with subtitles so you'll need to give it your full attention. In it you'll see what happens to the culture of a nation when the formerly relatively homogeneous population and their leaders fail to REQUIRE that immigrants -- even those who speak the language -- ASSIMILATE at a deeper CULTURAL LEVEL. The destructive process is called "balkanization" (a pejorative geopolitical term, originally used to describe the process of...

    During the Friday, 9/19/15 edition of FNN's The Five, the hosts were posed questions from viewers. Each was asked two questions. One question was Who would you most like to interview? The other was Whose political campaign would you like to run? Kimberly's G's response to the first was Winston Churchill. I just love Churchill. To the second, her reply was Carly Firorina after which she mumbled something like Yea Carly. Kimberly is a very bright gal, but I suspect she is missing some vital information relative to her two selections as they each clearly hold very, very different views...

    HISTORY OF U.S. DEPORTATIONS and REMOVALS Throughout history, sovereign nations have frequently expelled those people the government considered threats. Many foreign states also have a history of not expelling those threats but KILLING THEM. We don't do that here. At least, not yet! But, should those legitimately targeted for expulsion violently resist, we could see that at some point. Here's a short list of earlier American actions in that area: Following the Indian Removal Act of 1830, many members of the "Five Civilized Tribes" did not wish to assimilate. In 1838, President Andrew Jackson began relocating those Indian tribes...

    First, the GOOD news: Though still disturbing, the number of police officers killed each year has fallen back to mid-1960s levels. Most of THOSE lamentable 60s deaths were the result of actions by criminals suspects or really bad people during law enforcement efforts at apprehensions. Now, the BAD news: We are seeing something very, very different today. We are witnessing the random executions of cops by those who appear to have been animated by the unfortunate race-baiting and other efforts to disrupt our culture by certain members of the political class and the consequent break-down in the rule of law....

    Planned Parenthood is less about women's health than it is about providing the last ditch form of birth control for those women who fail to practice adequate contraception. Unless rape is involved, the woman is in control of what happens in these situations. The so-called Women's Liberation Movement has essentially given license to women to be as sexually active as many men in this degenerating culture. If you need help conceptualizing or visualizing that, think the sleazy TV production Sex In The City. I forced myself to watch a few episodes just to be sure what I'm about to say...

    In their never-ending pursuit of the perfect progressive perpetual motion reelection machine, the delusional Democrats (but I repeat myself) have treated us to some 200 so-called Sanctuary Cities. These are almost exclusively Democrat dominated enclaves where the so-called authorities have taken the position that illegal aliens may come there with no risk that their presence will be reported to the federales. Under existing federal law, cities are SUPPOSED to REPORT them and said federales are SUPPOSED to then collect them and DEPORT them whence they came. Note the use of the word supposed.

    Briefly, here's the story from the owner's neighbor. A Walton County Sheriff's deputy shot my friends dog last night while the dog was in his own yard. The officer said he shot him because "he had that look". This was one of the sweetest dogs ever...a big clumsy pup that would lick your face off. Yes he was a blue nose pit bull but he was a PUPPY who loves to play and chew stuff up! The dog actually belonged to Taylor, a 5 year old little girl...now COMPLETELY broken hearted, not to mention confused because a policeman, someone she...

    The following comments have been attributed to Democrat political operative James Carville (aka Serpenthead, an appellation given him by his own wife). According to the alleged myth-busting website Snopes, owned and operated by a leftist Canadian husband and wife team who have been often caught shading or ignoring altogether information inimical to their leftist agenda, Carville never said this: (Begin Carville's alleged statement.) "Ideologies aren't all that important. What's important is psychology. The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That's why...

    As this is written, Atlanta is still in the throes of another winter weather situation. The TV is filled with images of major highways littered with abandoned vehicles. Many of their owners are stranded in make-shift shelters until warmer weather makes the roads passable again. The governor and other officials just concluded a news conference to explain how the mess unfolded and that they've learned much from this experience. One of the lessons they learned is that, once the potential severity of this event became obvious, dismissing public and private employees all at once to try to get home was...

    The late Judge Robert Bork wrote a controversial book in 1996 called Slouching Toward Gomorrah Modern Liberalism and American Decline He was pilloried in the mainstream media for being a negative conservative alarmist. That same year, former Reagan cabinet member, Dr. William Bennett published his The Book of Virtues. In it he attempted to call our attention to a process he termed the coarsening of the culture. He was likewise raked over the coals for attempting to point out what, in retrospect, anyone with half a brain would recognize as early attempts to prevent the slide that has brought us...

    By now, this story is old news to those involved in the on-going battle to preserve the Second Amendment. For those who are not, here's the story: A national newspaper chain with nearly 100 publications and 1.6 million readers is considering building state-by-state databases on concealed weapons permit holders, according to an internal e-mail. The plan, laid out in an email from a top editor at North Carolina-based Civitas Media, could be similar to a controversial project a New York state newspaper carried out in 2012 which included an online map that identified gun owners in two counties by name...

    <p>Since we're getting down to crunch time -- the 2014 elections -- I thought I'd send this around while there might still be time to impact them.</p> <p>My little video runs just under 8 minutes. Please watch it and, if as concerned as I am, go on to Part 2. Then send the links to your like minded friends. Don't bother with any lefty associates as they already know how to play this game and are tuning up the buses as you read this to haul millions of illegals/welfare slugs and, yes, dead folks, to the polls in November!</p>

    Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well. Aristotle "The most perfect political community is one in which the middle class is in control, and outnumbers both of the other classes. Aristotle Many of the troubles America now faces have their genesis among many others in the violation of God's laws for individuals and society, generally, and, specifically, those two observations by Aristotle. Aristotle and his philosophical brethren also understood that some humans lack the ability control themselves and...

    We simply must refuse to allow libtards to continue their nefarious and dangerous practice of hijacking and twisting our language, the most pernicious example of which is their application of the term progressive to themselves. Here's a question for those of you who somehow escaped the government school indoctrination process with your critical thinking skills intact: When these people say progressive, to where or to what do they propose to progress? Among America's founding documents is the Declaration of Independence. Because many of you younger readers may not have been exposed to the Declaration in school (or, worse, were exposed...

    It is time to get women out of the schooling of boys. It is way past time. Women in our feminized classrooms are consigning generations of our sons to years of misery and diminished futures. The evidence is everywhere. Few dare notice it. The feminization is real. More than seventy-five percent of teachers are women; in New York state, over ninety percent of elementary school teachers are women; in the US, over seventy percent of psychologists are women, with (sez me) the rest being doubtful. This is feminization with fangs. I have just read Back to Normal: Why Ordinary Childhood...

    The recently released film Captain Phillips is getting good reviews and a respectable box office. It is a film I won't be viewing. My reasons? Tom Hanks is a talented actor (that's someone who can memorize at least one paragraph of dialog written by another). Unfortunately, he is also another Hollywood Obama worshiper, albeit a relatively quiet one, who, along with Spielberg and several others, grasp the financial rewards for positive portrayals of the United States military. Projects such as "Saving Private Ryan", "Band of Brothers" and now this new one. How sadly hypocritical that these Hollywood types continue...

    By way of explaining to those who do not understand this insidious so-called omnibus spending bill nonsense, (because reinventing the wheel is such a pain) I present, verbatim, the following from Wikipedia. An omnibus spending bill is a bill that sets the budget of many departments of the United States government at once. It is one possible outcome of the budget process in the U.S. Every year, Congress must pass bills that appropriate money for all discretionary government spending. Generally, one bill is passed for each sub-committee of the U.S. House Committee on Appropriations. Ordinarily, each bill is passed separately...
