    On the summit of Stone Mountain, yards away from where Ku Klux Klansmen once burned giant crosses, just above and beyond the behemoth carving of three Confederate heroes, state authorities have agreed to erect a monument to the Rev.

Nathan Deal has green-lighted the projects, and a formal...

    Russia formally staked its claim Tuesday to a large portion of the Arctic Ocean that includes the North Pole, even planting a flag on the floor of the ocean below the area to exercise its control. If the United Nations committee that arbitrates sea boundaries accepts Russia’s claim, the waters will be subject to Moscow’s oversight on economic matters, including fishing and oil and gas drilling, though Russia will not have full sovereignty. Under a 1982 United Nations convention, the Law of the Sea, a nation may claim an exclusive economic zone over the continental shelf abutting its shores. If...

    The Swedish flag, with its yellow cross and blue background, originates from the mid-15th century and became the main symbol of Sweden during the second half of the 16th century.[1] Despite its long history, it is only in the 21th century that the Swedish flag is being challenged by parts of Swedish society.  It is a challenge that reveals much about the current discourse in Sweden. In 2007,  a 13-year-old student was thrown out of classroom in Råneå elementary school in the municipality of Luleå because he had a shirt with the Swedish flag.[2] The teacher who threw out the student had asked the...

The affected motorists will be sent new Sons of Confederate Veterans tags along with a letter telling them they have 30 days before the old plate is invalid, said Department of Motor Vehicles spokeswoman Brandy Brubaker. However, the replacement tag doesn't exist yet. The DMV will work with the heritage group to come up with a new flagless plate design, Brubaker said. Then the plate has to be manufactured and sent...

    Calls for more gun control almost always follow a public crime or terror attack in which the attacker–or attackers–use a gun. Yet many of the most infamous attacks take place in gun free zones–places where law-abiding citizens disarm themselves to comply with the rules while criminals take advantage of disarmed masses and open fire. What follows are just a few of the many examples of shootings in gun free zones that could be listed. There is not one type of firearm that can be blamed–the weapon used was sometimes a handgun, sometimes a rifle, other times a shotgun–nor is there one...

    On his first trip to Iowa as the fresh face of the Republican presidential field, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has been putting the pedal to the metal, crisscrossing the Hawkeye State’s corn field-lined interstates in a souped-up Winnebago RV with a goal of hitting all 99 counties before voters here cast the nation’s first votes in the presidential nominating process. Since arriving in Iowa Friday -- the final stop of his whirlwind five-state, 16-city campaign kickoff tour -- it has been abundantly clear that Iowa is the key to Walker’s White House hopes. ~snip~ While campaigning this week, he has...

    JULY 17--But who will care for all those Confederate flags? The North Carolina man who responded to the South Carolina church massacre by further covering his property in the rebel flag was arrested and jailed this week on a probation violation charge, records show. Edward Lee West, 69, is locked up in the Nash County jail in advance of an August 5 court appearance. Seen in the adjacent mug shot, West was collared Wednesday afternoon. According to court records, a judge issued an arrest warrant for West after he failed to show up last week for a court hearing on...
  • Question of the day: Will the National Socialist Left Now call for the banning of Radical Islam?

    Here lays the supreme problem for the National Socialist Left in attempting to exploit every tragedy for crass political gain against their enemies. They often get hoisted on their own petard when their rank hypocrisy is shown in stark relief for all the world to see. Now that we know that the Chattanooga shooter was motivated by radical Islam, will the National Socialist Left have the balls to oppose a REAL enemy instead of one THEY KNOW won’t retaliate against their rank oppressive tendencies? Or will they ‘Cair’? It’s a sure bet that whenever a shooting takes place in a...

    The Fresno City Council president vows the Confederate battle flag will never legally fly over Fresno City Hall. Not that it’s ever likely to happen. Not that it’s ever happened as far as City Hall veterans can recall. Council President Oliver Baines on Thursday is proposing a law that would prohibit the city from displaying or selling the Confederate battle flag. The law would not apply to private organizations or individuals. California lawmakers last year passed a similar law that applies to state government agencies. The Confederate flag on South Carolina’s State House grounds was recently removed. Baines’ proposal comes...

    A Cullman-based attorney has filed a lawsuit against Alabama's governor saying Robert Bentley didn't have the authority to remove Confederate flags from the grounds of the state Capitol. The lawsuit states the Alabama Historical Commission didn't follow its mandate and the governor "overstepped his authority" when four Confederate flags were removed from the Confederate Memorial Monument on June 24. Melvin Hasting filed the suit on behalf of himself in Montgomery County Circuit Court on Tuesday afternoon. The suit lists Bentley, Alabama Historical Commission and its acting executive director Lisa Jones as defendants. Hasting is asking the court for a preliminary...

    First it was the ice bucket challenge. Now, a new social media campaign encourages people to film themselves tearing down Confederate flags from people’s property or vehicles. In what appears to be the original video, posted to Facebook on July 11 by Jamari Williams, a young black man runs up to a house and jumps to tear down a Confederate flag from the flag pole. Another male, in the driver’s seat of the car, filmed the ordeal while laughing and saying “no flagging’” repeatedly. SNIP The challenge has two hashtags: #noFlagginchallenge and #DestroyConfederateFlag. There is even an Instagram account apparently...
