    The Ukes perform Ennio Morricone's classic, from the DVD 'Anarchy in the Ukulele', available to buy ^ | Uploaded on January 14, 2010Unknown | CD copied onto private Youtube account UkuleleOrchestraNA
    Did you ever wonder how they did the music for The Good, the Bad & the Ugly? It is so cool to see how it was made after all these years. Some of you may not be old enough to remember this classic from the '60s'. Here it is anyway. This is fantastic. Turn it up nice and loud and enjoy. For those still caught in the '60s groove -- this is the answer to how that magnificent signature tune came about...Superb....wait till the guy whistles!

    Idahoans for Liberty ^ | June 2, 2016 | Karen Schumacher
    With the new United Nations (UN) and federal government grand plan to steal what remains of our land through the ruse of ecosystem management, there is one grand daddy that will take all of Idaho in one fell swoop. In 1944 the United States and Canada began talks to jointly manage the Columbia River which crossed the border. Both came to an agreement in 1961 creating a treaty that would provide flood control, generate hydropower, and meet irrigation needs. This treaty, known as the ColumbiaTreaty, was finalized in 1961 and implemented in 1964. Because the river crossed borders, called transboundary,...

    In a move spearheaded by environmentalists, the Portland Public Schools board unanimously approved a resolution aimed at eliminating doubt of climate change and its causes in schools. It is unacceptable that we have textbooks in our schools that spread doubt about the human causes and urgency of the crisis, said Lincoln High School student Gaby Lemieux in board testimony. Climate education is not a niche or a specialization, it is the minimum requirement for my generation to be successful in our changing world.

    WallBuilders ^ | April 22, 2016 | Staff
    It was announced this week that Harriet Tubman will be on the face of the new $20 bill, to replace Andrew Jackson. Far too few today have heard much about this remarkable woman, so this is a good time to learn something about Harriet Tubman. She was born a slave in Maryland somewhere around 1820-1825. She escaped from slavery by using the Underground Railroad -- a series of secret routes running from the safe house of one anti-slavery citizen to another, which provided fleeing slaves safe passage and assistance from the South into the Northern states or Canada (see some...

    I was one of the lucky attendees last Friday at the Munk Debate in Torontos Roy Thompson Hall. The motion before the house concerned refugee policy: Be it resolved: Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. On the pro side: Louise Arbour, former UN Human Rights commissioner and historian Simon Schama; on the con side journalist Mark Steyn and Britains UKIP party leader Nigel Farage. The Munk tradition is to poll the audience before and after the debate. On this occasion, the audience was, as one might expect with a Toronto audience, heavily salted...

    IT MIGHT sound barking mad, but it turns out dogs can fly. A New Zealand dog trainer who taught RSPCA dogs to drive has done the unthinkable and managed to train dogs how to pilot a plane in a bid to prove just how capable rescue dogs can be. Last year, animal trainer and zoologist Mark Vette spent four months in the United Kingdom working with rescue dogs for the series, Dogs Might Fly, which is only just airing in Britain. In a world first, Mr Vette was able to successfully train three rescue dogs, Reggie, Shadow and Alfie, to...

    American Spectator ^ | April 1, 2016 | Kenneth Calvert
    Theres a good bit of discussion these days about immigration and border policy. While good policy is crucial, so is the question of why people immigrate to the United States in the first place. Historians estimate that between 1815 and 1915, more than 30 million people came to the United States in one of the largest population movements in human history. In the 20th century, millions came from around the world to escape socialist and communist tyranny, not to mention forced population movements in places like the Soviet Union. A recent report from the Center for Immigration Studies states that...

    Lincoln High School in Portland, Oregon, sports a series of murals painted in its main entrance that feature communist and La Raza/Aztlan propaganda. Take a gander at these! Note the American flag with the hammer and sickle in place of the stars, the white arms in shackles with what appears to be Fidel Castro with the Cuban flag behind him, men with guns, an image of Che Guevara, dollar bills, and what appears to be missiles popping up from silos. Perhaps this is some kind of imagery of strong border control?

    Cascade Policy Institute ^ | March 22, 2016 | Kathryn Hickock
    In 1804 an Ursuline nun in New Orleans asked Thomas Jefferson to clarify in writing her religious communitys right to retain their property and to continue their ministries without government interference following the Louisiana Purchase. As French Catholic Louisiana was being incorporated into the Anglo-Protestant United States, the nuns were concerned about the status of their institutions under U.S. law. President Jefferson assured her that the government would not interfere with the sisters property, ministries, and way of life. In a letter dated May 15, 1804, he wrote: I have received, holy sisters, the letter you have written me wherein...

It cites a "report" which is actually a series of tweets claiming that a man named "Don Fairly" left the Cruz campaign along with seven other staffers.
