  • How left-wing & anti-family is Charlie Baker, the Mass GOP establishment’s candidate for Governor?

    massresistance.org ^ | 09/01/2014 | n/a
    Four years ago, when Baker was the GOP nominee, we did an assessment of Baker’s far-left, anti-family view and actions. Well, as we cruise into the Sept. 9 primary with Baker against conservative underdog Mark Fisher, it’s time for an update. Needless to say, things have only gotten worse. These days it’s very seductive for the GOP across the country to think that they can avoid confrontation with the Left by abandoning their supporters’ principles on “culture war” and “hot button” issues and instead promoting on things like “good management.” But that’s wishful thinking. (See the recent post, “The Left...

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Obama sued Bank of America because it did exactly what he had told it to do. Obama then gave some of the settlement money to left wing groups that he had worked for. While working as a “community organizer,” Barack Obama filed lawsuits which forced banks to give mortgages to people with bad credit and low incomes. As a result, many of these people ended up defaulting on their mortgages. As their attorney, Obama collected $23,000 in legal fees for himself.Then in April 2013, during Obama’s second term as President, the Washington Post reported that President...

    “If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be,” as Yogi Berra once said. If you want to understand what this means, go see The Giver. The Giver is in the great dystopian tradition of Animal Farm and 1984, Brave New World, Atlas Shrugged, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, and so many more. (It also evoked for me memories of the Ring cycle and Lord of the Rings.) It takes place in a “perfect” society that has eliminated war, pain, suffering, differences and choice. They have created a society where everyone is equal (except those who are “more equal,” of...

It was designed to be used by women to detect whether or not certain "date rape" drugs are in their drinks. The girl simply swirls her polished fingernail in the drink, and if the color of the polish changes, then it means someone has slipped her a mickey. It sounds like a handy tool for our Godless, sex-obsessed, "modern" culture, right? Well, not if we forget to factor...

    The president has the power to grant pardons and reprieves according to the US Constitution. The word 'amnesty' isn't used. Nor is there any place in the entire US Constitution where the word 'amnesty' is used. One certainly has to wonder what these voices using the expression 'executive amnesty' mean by it. Odd are they are referring to the president's power to pardon. Perhaps 'amnesty' in their minds means some kind of blanket 'pardon'. Assuming that is what is meant, then a president certainly could issue some kind of pardon from prosecution for specific illegal acts such as illegal entry...

    Earlier this month, Senator John McCain indicated that it was time for the United States to consider selling lethal weapons to Vietnam after a 30-year embargo. The recent maritime standoff between Beijing and Hanoi over Chinese oil exploration off the central coast of Vietnam exposed Hanoi’s many strategic weaknesses. Providing Vietnam with coast guard and maritime systems as a first step - and eventually radar, fighter aircraft and spare parts for leftover American military equipment - would bolster Hanoi’s strategic capabilities vis-a-vis China and give substance to the "comprehensive partnership" announced last year between Hanoi and Washington. But more than...

    Breaking new revelations in the controversy over the police shooting of 18-year old Michael Brown have not only changed the narrative completely, they probably guarantee that the police officer in question, Dennis Wilson, will be exonerated. If not for new video evidence showing a person who has been positively identified as Brown committing strong-arm robbery nearby (at the same store which was looted and burned in the aftermath of his death), and just prior to the shooting incident, officer Wilson might have been railroaded as George Zimmerman nearly was last year, and falsely convicted of a very serious crime.

    “Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.” ― Thoreau So why not just laugh now? – G “If we do not feel grateful for what we already have, what makes us think we’d be happy with more?” — Unknown Recently I posted a picture of myself in my kitchen, and I immediately started receiving generous messages from people wanting to help me “update” it. Along with their messages came pictures of how my kitchen could look, if I’d just put some effort and money into it. I’ve always loved my kitchen, but after seeing those...

    People for the American Way’s Leftist Diatribe Against a Brazilian Conservative By Julio Severo The American Way should be to expose and destroy tyrannies, especially socialism. But do not tell that to the People for the American Way (PFAW), which, according to WorldNetDaily, is “an atheist socialist organization which, through publications like its ‘Right Wing Watch,’ dedicates itself to the destruction of conservatives in general.” Former leftist U.S. Presidente Bill Clinton in People for the American Way The latest attack from “Right Wing Watch” was against me, Julio Severo, in a piece entitled “BarbWire Pundit Defends Brazil’s Past Violent...

  • What is Frugal?

    08/10/2014 3:21:11 AM PDT · by EC1 · 58 replies
    Waste not, want not. We've heard it a billion times. It's one of the contributions to literature of my native county, which also coined the phrase "Where there's muck, there's brass" - brass being slang for money. A common insult in the UK is to say someone has Yorkshire pockets. Pockets too deep to easily get money out of. Yet frugal is not miserly, a common mistake among the newer to the prepper community. It's an unwillingness to spend money on what you don't need. If you do need it, you buy the best. I have pots and pans that...

    By now Ukrainian army liberated 3/4 of territory occupied by rebels early this year. No one has doubt that separatists will lose. They themselves fight against hope. Some rebels fight because they paid, large category fight because they are stupid or have nothing else to do or watch Russian TV. Whatever reason they fight for they know they have no chance to win.., they know it is as certain as a new day comes after long night. As soon as new city is liberated locals welcome Ukrainian army and first thing they crush Lenin monuments. When I was watching...

    It's always interesting to see what sort of people a President wants to surround himself with. The following is a list of some of the most powerful politicians in the country. All were either nominated by President Obama and then confirmed by the United States Senate, or else were simply appointed to their positions without Senate approval.
  • Hamas’ is a curious word with significant meanings

    The Wisconisn Jewish Chronicle ^ | 7/14/06 | Martin H. Sable, Ph.D.
    Language is a strange commodity. Sometimes there is within it a “play on words,” but at others there is no “play” but rather a mysterious, unexplained truth. Let us take the example of Hamas, which according to the Council on Foreign Relations, a New York City research center, is “the largest, most influential political fundamentalist movement” in the Muslim world. By one means or another, Hamas aims to convince the world of its deep desire to eliminate Israel, and establish there instead the 23rd religious Muslim state. Hamas is an Arabic acronym for “Harakat al-Muqawamah al-Islamiyya,” which means “The Islamic...

    Putin's Secret Message to ObamaI’m Andrew Klavan and this is the Revolting Truth. Ever since President Obama took office, he’s been making friendly overtures to the Russians, trying to “press the reset button” in relations between our two countries. In 2012, the president was even caught on an open mike promising he’d have more “flexibility” to cave in to Russian demands after he was re-elected. Russian President Vladimir Putin has responded warmly to Obama’s gestures by warmly cheating on our arms treaties, warmly supporting our enemies in Syria, warmly annexing Crimea, and warmly abetting the destruction of a Malaysian airliner...

    Yesterday, I posted a YouTube video that had spawned the gif of the tiger attack you see below. For some reason the video was terribly disappointing and I felt that way, too. But had thought the video would be superior to a simple gif. Today, reading a commenter's disappointment totally agreed with him as I've expressed here below. Hopefully you'll all enjoy the gif and never bother to seethe video it originated from. I wouldn't, couldn't disagree with you. I first saw the famed tiger attack as a gif (here below much more dramatic than the video could ever be)and...
