  • Guns And Ammo Production Maxed Out: “This Is A Society Preparing For War”

    SHTF Plan ^ | 2-14-2013 | Mac Slavo
    Guns And Ammo Production Maxed Out: “This Is A Society Preparing For War” Mac Slavo February 14th, 2013 President Barack Obama is, arguably, the best gun salesman ever. Over 65 million guns have been purchased since the President took office in 2009. FBI background check statistics indicate that, over the last twelve months, Americans purchased a new gun every 1.5 seconds, a figure which suggests there is much more to the recent panic buying than people just stocking up to go hunting or sports shooting. The following guns and ammo industry report indicates that every major gun and ammunition manufacturer...

    The word is impossible to miss in thick black letters on the cover of the “Critique of the Freeh Report” and the 57 mentions that follow. Injustice. Not for the boy who Jerry Sandusky raped in a locker-room shower at Penn State. Not for the boy who testified to being sexually abused by Sandusky as often as three times per week. Not for the boy Sandusky molested at the former assistant coach’s home. No, the ‘injustice’ railed against in the 238-page report released Saturday revolves around none other than the late Joseph Vincent Paterno. Bankrolled by the Paterno family, the...

    For two days Rush Limbaugh has been explaining a recent epiphany of his. His epiphany is that he now understands BO’s Modus Operandi. To summarize that revelation, Rush is making the point that BO does not lead, he does not govern, that all he does is campaign. As he campaigns, he attacks those who oppose him ideologically, typically Republicans but now the TEA Party and any other group (such as the NRA) that opposes any of his many radically leftist pet projects. I’m surprised it took Rush this long to make that observation, and it surprises me even more that...

    ERIE, Colo. (CBS4) – A Colorado company is threatening to leave the state if a bill to ban high-capacity ammunition magazines becomes law. CBS4 Investigator Rick Sallinger toured the company in Erie. They said they would certainly prefer to stay. The company is called Magpul. Among other products, they make ammunition magazines which can hold up to 30 rounds. Tuesday night a state House committee took the first step towards banning them. Magpul is one of the largest producers of the high-capacity magazines in the country. “Actually, every product you see here being made today on these magazine assembly lines...

    Two off-duty law enforcement officers involved in a deadly shooting in Hernando County have been honored by the Hernando County Sheriff's Office. In October, Tampa police officer William Mechler and Hernando sheriff's deputy Rocky Howard were off-duty when they shot and killed a naked 42-year-old woman. The officers said Inga Marie Swanson was threatening a group of people. On Wednesday, both men received the Medal of Valor, which is the highest honor given by the Hernando County Sheriff's Office. Two months after the shooting, the State Attorney's Office cleared the two men of wrongdoing in the shooting. Sheriff Al Nienhuis...

    In an apparent planning snafu, President Obama today will visit an early learning school in Decatur, Georgia that happens to be in recess this week. But no problem: According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, staff and bus drivers will be summoned back to work for the day to accomodate Obama’s appearance. College Heights Early Childhood Learning Center Principle Suzanne Kennedy alerted parents that the staff will interrupt their vacations for the “amazing opportunity” for students to “expand their worlds” by seeing the president: President Obama’s visit is an honor for College Heights and the City Schools of Decatur. Since the school...

    FELIX ZULAUF: If The Stock Market Doesn't Correct Soon, Then We Could Repeat 1987 Sam RoFebruary 14, 2013GoldMoney Foundation via YouTube One of the most striking aspects of the current bull run in the U.S. stock market is the lack of a correction (e.g. 5 percent sell-off) in months. As stocks close in on new all-time highs, even the most bullish stock market bulls are worried about this. Swiss hedge fund manager Felix Zulauf is particularly concerned, and he warns if we don't get some sort of sell-off soon, we could see a crash. He spoke with King World News'...

    A comprehensive lawsuit charging government conspiracy and cover-up was filed Tuesday in the United States District Court Southern District of Texas Brownsville Division by the parents of murdered Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jamie Zapata and Special Agent Victor Avila, Jr., against the government, straw purchasers, individual government officials, gun dealers and others deemed to share in responsibility per the complaint. Gun Rights Examiner has obtained copies of the Plaintiff’s Original Complaint and the related docket sheet. On first reading, the complaint appears to have the potential to uncover specifics about government-sanctioned “gunwalking” and those who authorized it beyond what...

    Catholic and non-Catholic moviegoers alike should be concerned about a new film that purports to document decades-old abuse scandals in the Catholic Church. Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, created by HBO Productions, attempts to chronicle the Church’s response to the crimes of the notorious pedophile priest Lawrence Murphy, who is alleged to have abused dozens of innocent boys at St. John’s School for the Deaf in St. Francis, Wisconsin from the 1950s to the 1970s. The episode was the subject of a series of high-profile articles by the New York Times’ Laurie Goodstein during Lent of...

    I just received a call from an organization called "Mayors against illegal guns" or some such. It was an attempt to call and get me to speak with my representative about how I wanted to support the recent legislation around 30 round magazine bans and universal background checks. I spent about 5 mins telling the caller why they were wrong and that these laws always ended in confiscation and enslavement of the citizens. To no avail and we eventually agreed to disagree and hung up. However, this tells me that there is a STRONG push to get people to influence...

    Numbers USA/NAFBPO ^ | Feb. 4, 2013 | NAFBPO Press Release
    NAFBPO rejects the President's proposal out of hand. It is unacceptable in that it contains not so much as a nod to immigration enforcement or a secure border. It is predicated upon administration claims that the border is secure now, or at least, secure enough. That claim is at best wishful thinking but is more likely willful misdirection of the public's opinion of the situation. A study of Border Patrol operations by the Government Accountability Office indicates that the Border Patrol is about 60% effective, a deplorable figure even if accurate. NAFBPO members maintain contacts with many field officers and...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove huddled with a group of House GOP leaders in the office Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy Thursday morning to discuss the party's messaging efforts, Republicans familiar with the meeting said. Details of Rove's presentation to a group of McCarthy's "whip team" — a subset of the broader conference tasked with educating the rank and file, rounding up votes on key bills and generally enforcing discipline within Republican ranks. Following the meeting, several lawmakers could be heard instructing staff to setup meetings with Rove.

    Folks, don’t look now but the pieces of the Benghazi puzzle are starting to come together. Check out this video from Tom Trento – the same guy who interviewed John Guandolo last week about John Brennan’s alleged conversion to Islam. Before scoffing at the conversion, ask yourself if Brennan HAD converted to Islam, would he have had an interest in shipping weapons from Libya, to Turkey, then on to Syria to help the Brotherhood fight Bashar al-Assad? The answer to that question is an emphatic yes. “The threat of Islam is predicted all over the Bible, read and study Walid...

    A school principal said no white children were allowed at an after-school tutoring program, and now some parents call it discrimination. The principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora sent a letter telling parents the program is only for students of color. Parents CBS4 talked with said they were shocked to see, in this day and age, what they consider to be segregation. “I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” said parent Nicole Cox, who is white. Cox’s 10-year-old daughter needs tutoring. After receiving the notice, other parents complained to the school’s principal,...

    Townhall.com ^ | February 14, 2013 | Cal Thomas
    President Obama's approach to so-called "climate change" appears to include recycling old ideas. In his State of the Union address, the president recycled the idea of spending more on education, though we are still getting unsatisfactory results. A fact he inadvertently acknowledged by saying we're not keeping up with other countries in science and math. He maintained there are tens of thousands of jobs available but companies can't fill them because public schools aren't teaching students what they need to know. We spend huge sums on education already, so money and achievement must not be related. Infrastructure? We've heard that...
