    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Monday called for armed protesters who occupied a federal building in Oregon to "stand down peaceably." "Every one of us has a constitutional right to protest, to speak our minds," Cruz told reporters in Iowa. "But we don‘t have a constitutional right to use force and violence and to threaten force and violence against others. So it is our hope that the protesters there will stand down peaceably, that there will not be a violent confrontation."
  • New York Magazine’s Chait ‘Votes’ For Oregon Militia Members To Be ‘Killed’

    01/04/2016 9:01:42 AM PST · by rktman · 56 replies ^ | 1/4/2016 | John Nolte
    Don’t confuse this as a defense of the Bundy family or their team of armed militia members who have occupied an abandoned building located on a federal wildlife preserve in Oregon. Any rational-thinking American should be horrified at the amount of land the federal government has confiscated, especially in the American West, but once you use or threaten violence to further a cause, you have lost me. Their cause is just. Their methods are appalling and un-American. Also un-American is Jonathan Chait of New York Magazine openly hoping these militia men end up dead.
  • Why aren't we calling the Oregon occupiers 'terrorists'?

    The Washington Post ^ | 1-4-16 | Janell Ross
    As of Sunday afternoon, The Washington Post called them "occupiers." The New York Times opted for "armed activists" and "militia men." And the Associated Press put the situation this way: "A family previously involved in a showdown with the federal government has occupied a building at a national wildlife refuge in Oregon and is asking militia members to join them." Not one seemed to lean toward terms such as "insurrection," "revolt," anti-government "insurgents" or, as some on social media were calling them, "terrorists." When a group of unknown size and unknown firepower has taken over any federal building with plans...

  • Profiles in Courage Iranian Hunger Strikers in Iraq; Freedom Riders in American South

    Will President Obama show courage and save Iranians who seek a soft revolution in Iran? With the commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of JFKs assassination on November 22, words from Profiles in Courage, cross paths with past, current, and future upheavals. They include a soft revolution in America, Arab revolts in Tunisia and Egypt, and a prospective revolution in Iran. Iranian dissidents held in prison-like conditions in Iraq are the true profiles in courage. Just like few dreamed that freedom riders and sit-in demonstrators would ignite the civil rights movement, it seems inconceivable that suffering of a few might ignite...

Many of the groups are small and operate on a local level, but a number have emerged as powerful forces with affiliates across the country or formed alliances with other groups that share a similar agenda.

    The third definition of "patriot" in the Oxford English Dictionary is "A person actively opposing enemy forces occupying his or her country; a member of a resistance movement, a freedom fighter. Originally used of those who opposed and fought the British in the American War of Independence." The term first was used in the U.S. by Benjamin Franklin in a 1773 letter. It referred to people who stood in opposition of those pledged to the British Crown -- the Tories aka loyalists. On Oct. 7, 1780, American patriots prevailed against loyalists in the Carolinas and won their first Southern...

    Thousands of protesters gathered in Yemen's capital, Sana'a, Saturday to celebrate the resignation of Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak and call for their own president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, to step down. The protesters began marching toward the Egyptian embassy but were confronted and pushed back by a group of men armed with sticks. There were conflicting reports as to whether the armed men were police or government supporters. The gathering points for Saturday's protests were Sana'a University and the city's Tahrir Square, which bears the same name as the rallying point for the protests in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

    Tibetan monks shouting pro-independence slogans caught Chinese officials by surprise Thursday during a highly scripted tour for Western journalists in Lhasa’s central Buddhist temple, disrupting China’s effort to portray the recent Tibetan rioting as the work of violent criminal thugs and separatists. “Tibet is not free! Tibet is not free!” yelled one young Buddhist monk, who then started crying, according to an Associated Press correspondent in the tour. Government handlers shouted for the journalists to leave and tried to pull them away during the 15-minute protest by about 30 monks at the Jokhang Monastery in central Lhasa. It was unclear...

The most senior official to defect so far, Hla Win, said: "Many more people have been killed in recent days than you've heard about. The bodies can be counted in several thousand." Mr Win, who spoke out as a Swedish diplomat predicted that the revolt has failed, said he fled when he was ordered to take part in a massacre of holy men.

    BELGRADE, Serbia, June 8 Seven years after Kosovo was placed under United Nations control, it appears increasingly likely that the province will be allowed to break away from Serbia formally and become an independent nation. Members of the United Nations Security Council appear to be leaning toward permitting Kosovo to go its own way. The Council is expected to vote on Kosovo's fate by the end of the year, unless the Serbs and Kosovo Albanians, who have been negotiating unsuccessfully for months, reach a resolution. But some of the world's most powerful countries are fearful the move will encourage...

The United Nations is mediating talks on Kosovo's future status, which Western diplomats say are likely to conclude with a form of independence by the end of the year. Serbia is adamantly opposed to such an outcome. "I am very afraid of the possible imposed solution against the will of Belgrade of turning Kosovo into a state," Draskovic told a news conference. "The whole region, I think, would inevitably face turbulence." The...

    (EXCERPT)What is a common example of disbelief in evil? A person who calls terrorists "freedom fighters" is giving away the fact that he does not believe they are evil. If the random murder of civilians by zealous fanatics is not evil, then nothing is evil. Therefore, it is a fair deduction that many of those who do not believe the terrorists are evil also do not believe in the existence of evil. Those who deny the existence of evil are often outraged when good men give evil a name and fight against it. This outrage sometimes prompts them to take...

The site, near the town of Samawa, about 300 km (180 miles) south of Baghdad, consists of 18 shallow trenches dug by earth-moving vehicles into hard limestone rock. Most of the victims were women and children who were apparently lined up in front of the pits and shot with AK-47 assault rifles, according to a U.S. investigator. Around 110 bodies have been...

    Thanks to the great holy work done by Israels security forces, which include the Shin Bet, IDF, Israel Police and other intelligence groups, Passover in Israel this year was quiet.

    "The Republicans have allowed a communist dictatorship to flourish eight jet minutes from our borders! We must support anti-Castro fighters. So far these freedom fighters have received no help from our government." -- Democratic presidential candidate, Oct. 1960 "George Bush and the Republicans in Washington have run the most inept foreign policy in the modern history of this country! It has been a failure!" -- Democratic presidential Candidate, April 2004. No, friends, it didn't start with this campaign. Indeed, Kerry apes his idol (JFK) faithfully. Problem was, during the '60 presidential campaign Kennedy left out the sly smile, the shifty...

    The nation has made important strides forward in achieving the color-blind society Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld told the Pentagon breakfast audience today. But, Rumsfeld said, "Today, we face another challenge to freedom, one that is truly deadly," referring to the global war on terrorism. Calling today's terrorist threat more deadly than could be imagined during King's era, the secretary said, "It's a challenge -- not only to the freedom that we enjoy, but also to the very idea of living free. It's a challenge to being able to say what you wish, go where...

    One way or another, the fanatical mullahs of Iran will be toppled. It may not happen today or tomorrow, but soon, and undoubtedly within the next few years. The only question is whether the popular pro-democracy insurgents will have the wherewithal to oust the dreadful Islamo-fascists themselves, or, if ultimately, it will fall upon the US to effectuate needed "regime change". Of course, Americans prefer that the Iranians snatch back their own nation from the ayatollahs - and my hunch is that most Americans would be in favor of supporting an Iranian grassroots rebellion in myriad ways. During the past...

    June 17, 2003 The National Review Online Koorosh Afshar TEHRAN, IRAN During the past few nights, we Iranian youth have been agitating at great risk to our lives to remove the 24-year-old plague that has stricken our homeland. Our goal is to topple the theocratic regime of the mullahs. Our opponents are barbarian vigilantes members of Ansaar-e-Hezbollah who are backed by heavily armed Iranian riot police. Westerners may have difficulty imagining what these people are like. In fact, it's quite easy: Simply remember the Taliban. The only difference is that they don't wear Afghani clothes....

  • Philly Billboard: "Saddam, Give Peace A Chance, Go Into Exile"

    On northbound I-95 in Philadelphia, somewhere between the Broad Street and the Betsy Ross Bridge exits, there is this billboard. The background is mostly a medium blue color. The left side is a picture of Hussein and in the top right is a white dove symbol. Three lines of yellow/gold text, "Saddam - Give Peace a chance - Go into exil". Nothing on it to show who sponsored it, though I believe it was a "Clear Channel" billboard. It being a "Clear Channel" billboard will have the tinfoil hat left wingnuts convinced that Rush Limbaugh is behind it.

    CARACAS (Dow Jones)--An increasing number of countries have issued warnings against travel to Venezuela as a nationwide strike against President Hugo Chavez's leadership, which has all but shut the country's vital oil industry, entered its 17th day Wednesday with no sign of ending. Besides the U.S., which issued a travel advisory Dec. 10, the United Kingdom, Germany, Holland and Hungary are among countries that have told their citizens to avoid Venezuela due to the heightening tension and increasing potential for violence, according to reports. Many foreigners living in Venezuela are leaving, or have already left, as employers encourage them to...

    CARACAS, Venezuela (Reuters) - Foes of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, emboldened by the momentum of a strike to force him to resign, planned to take their battle to the streets on Wednesday with a campaign of marches, rallies and highway blockades. With a daily war cry of "Elections Now," anti-government demonstrators have intensified a crippling strike with noisy protests throughout Caracas as they push the president to accept an early vote in the world's No. 5 oil exporter. "The streets are our weapon along with flags and whistles," said Maria Munez, an unemployed businesswoman who was banging a pot on...
