    And so it begins. This is rampant in Europe and will be here, too, if Obama continues to import hundreds of thousands of these invaders. Why would they behave differently here? In Muslim countries, rape victims are at fault. The Quran allows Muslim men to use non-Muslim women as sex slaves, “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). But the even greater irresponsibility is that of the establishment that made people in Idaho think there was no risk in being around these migrants.

  • Orlando Shooting Aftermath: Singing Songs, Holding Hands, Demonstrating Impotence

    I can certainly understand the sentiment and wanting to stand for the victims and their families, but candle-light vigils, impromptu memorials, holding hands, singing songs -- and calling for the unilateral disarmament of law-abiding citizens -- only makes those who wish to replace our way of life with their backward savagery drool for more of our blood. That is particularly so if these expressions are not accompanied by a candid understanding of what motivates them to want to slaughter us wholesale -- and it is not real or imagined grievances that we committed against them. Their actual "grievance" is that...

    (Full title too long: Muslim Terrorist In Ohio Takes Apartment Complex Hostage, And Then Opens Fire On American Police Officer.)

    The Times of Malta ^ | June 19, 2016 | Ivan Martin
    Maltese prehistory may have just been extended by 30,000 years. The verdict of experts from the London Natural History Museum has revived the theory that a tooth discovered in Għar Dalam in 1917 may prove Neanderthals once roamed the island. The claim is not new. It was made in the 1920s by two British anthropologists, but four decades later the theory no longer had credence. “Anyone who wrote a history book from 1964 till today will say there were never any Neanderthals on Malta. According to them, the first people to come here were Sicilian farmers around 7,000 years ago,”...

    Newly obtained information from the Orlando nightclub shooter's school and work records show he caused trouble at an early age and, as an adult, became a proficient marksman with consistently high scores in tests. As far back as 1992, when he was in elementary school, teachers described Omar Mateen as a “disruptive influence” or “classroom disruption” and cited him for “repeat misconduct,” using profanity and even striking another student, according to St. Lucie County school records obtained by ABC News. He had two marks on the records during the 1992-1993 school year. Between 1996 and 1998, when Mateen was in...

    BISMARCK, N.D., June 13 (UPI) -- With a gain of three, the number of rigs actively exploring for or producing oil and natural gas in North Dakota is up 12 percent from last week, data show. Data from North Dakota's government show 28 rigs in active service as of Monday, up from the 25 reported one week ago. Rig counts serve as a barometer for the health of the oil and gas industry as oil prices in part determine how much companies are investing in exploration and production. Though at times above the $50 mark in recent sessions, last week...

    WASHINGTON -- President Obama lashed out at those criticizing him for not using the term "radical Islam," particularly "politicians who tweet," as "yapping" but doing nothing to solve the problem of terrorism. Obama met with his National Security Council in the Diplomatic Room at the Treasury Department this morning, .........

    From Campus Reform: A Students for Trump event at Portland State University was greeted with hostility Saturday when campus police officers tried to kick Trump’s supporters to the curb while protesters reacted hysterically to chants of “USA! USA!” Students for Trump began the event by erecting a wall on campus but campus security attempted to force the students to leave on the grounds that the wall was a “structure” rather than a “sign,” and thus violated university policies. However, the students were ultimately allowed to remain on campus but were harshly ridiculed by their peers, who called them “pathetic,” “idiot,”...

    As lawmakers from both parties rushed to condemn the mass shooting that left 50 dead in Orlando, Republicans appeared to shy away from noting the LGBT connection, while Democrats explicitly brought it up. Officials say the shooting, the deadliest such attack in U.S. history, occurred at a gay-themed nightclub and is being investigated as a possible act of domestic terrorism. The alleged shooter, who was killed by police, was a U.S. citizen of Afghan descent, leading to fears of an Islamist extremist connection, though his motive has not yet been established. The attack saw a collision of a number of...

An armed guard license in Florida requires 28 hours of classroom training by a licensed instructor....

    Donald Trump is straightforward, direct and brutally honest, a man who weighs up a situation and will give you the facts. Perhaps that is why so many people are afraid. There has been a lot of controversial statements about Trump and his displeasure of immigrants, especially Africans. Not so, Trump has consideration and affection toward other races. In a recent video, Trump said, “look at my African-American over here” and raised decent opinions about the man. Therefore, even though he might appear to have a distinct dislike for Africans, Trump does realize that they too are human. However, I would...

The importance of honor and shame comes through from this sentence: "Jihad for the sake of Allah is the pinnacle of Islam, and it allows one to gain honor in this world and the hereafter; it is one of the best tasks and acts of worship, and Muslims are only humiliated when they abandon the jihad."

But as the primaries went on, the signs for Republican candidates disappeared, leaving only Democratic candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Cafe regulars...

If you didn't leave it out, it wouldn't have been taken. If you didn't insult that guy, he wouldn't have punched you. If you didn't dress 'all pretty' the rapist wouldn’t have pounced. Now, Sam Liccardo - the Hillary-supporting mayor of 'sanctuary city' San Jose - is employing that argument in an effort to absolve violent rioters of wrongdoing.

    A few weeks ago when Brian Calle informed readers of the direction of the Orange County Register editorial board, it concerned me that while they would continue to be fiscally conservative, they would take more progressively liberal positions on social issues. Still, I thought their historically libertarian views would be the more powerful driver, so I gave them the benefit of the doubt. I was wrong. The heading in the Sunday, May 29, Opinion section proved this to me with a shocking editorial titled “Gomez for county Board of Education.” Brian Calle and his cohorts turned their backs on OC...

    Venezuela is running out of just about everything. Food, medicine, electricity, toilet paper, condoms -- you name it. And over the weekend at least two large international airlines -- Lufthansa and LATAM -- said they will suspend service to Venezuela in the coming months due to the economic crisis. The widespread scarcities and fleeing businesses reflect a country in crisis. "There's a shortage of everything at some level," says Ricardo Cusanno, vice president of Venezuela's Chamber of Commerce. Cusanno says 85% of companies in Venezuela have halted production to some extent. Venezuela's economy is spiraling into extreme recession. It is...

    The Midland Reporter-Telegram ^ | May 23, 2016 | Trevor Hawes
    It was a positive week for the Permian Basin rig count. The nation’s most-active basin added three rigs for a total of 137. Its most-active county, Midland, added two to the tally for a total of 23 rigs, according to weekly rotary rig count data released Friday by Houston-based oilfield services company Baker Hughes.

  • Imagine Bernezuela

    My family left Marxism due to the horrors of human degradation. Bernie needs to go "kick the tires" and actually spend time living in the end game of his world view. It's not the "Eddie Bauer, Whole Foods" version of life, minus the horrid Republicans. I don't want to live in "Bernezuela". Been there, done that. That's what this election is all about. An existential fork in the road.

    Orange County (CA) voters: help defeat Andrew Stein, a liberal candidate for Superior Court Judge. From his FB page: "I am a Democrat, raised in a family of working people and union members. I am a liberal, in that I believe that drug addiction and drug addicts need rehabilitation, as opposed to being warehoused in a cell." What Stein does do not mention (and deletes comments about it) is that he defended a animal abuser in 2011. http://www.ocregister.com/articles/dog-312079-stein-nizato.html If you can, please post comments on his FB page: https://www.facebook.com/AndrewMSteinforsuperiorcourt2016/

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | May 20, 2016 | Aaron Kliegman
    The host of a local North Dakota news show told viewers Friday that the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency “should freak people out” because she will badly damage the state’s economy by going after fracking, which will hurt the oil and gas industry and cost jobs. Chris Berg, the anchor of 6:30 Point of View, a show on CBS affiliate KXJB Valley News Live, discussed North Dakota’s economic struggles as Clinton’s husband, Bill, was in Fargo, North Dakota for a campaign rally. Berg explained that the North Dakota Office of Management and Budget released a revenue report on Friday...

    Gun Watch ^ | 8 May, 2016 | Dean Weingarten
    While growing up, I read a constant litany explaining that Javelina's were not dangerous. I read, over and over, that all the old stories of them attacking humans were old wives tales, not documented, never happened. So, I was a bit surprised to come across a news article from the 7th of May, 2016, that had hard evidence of an unprovoked real world attack by a herd of javelinas.  It was life threatening for an adult human with two leashed dogs. From fox10phoenix.com: The victim told authorities that a herd of javelina came out of a nearby wash, crossed...
