    Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- It’s possible there are many who know of Matthew Bracken, who is the author of the “Enemies Foreign and Domestic” trilogy, the third book of which is “Foreign Enemies and Traitors“. That apparently describes what a lot of people feel we are heading towards. “Democide is the elimination of a despised group by a government. It includes genocide, politicide, and other forms of state-sponsored mass murder.” Read an uncomfortably perceptive article by Matthew, and also be sure to watch the powerful short video lower down the page. Pass it on – it deserves a wide audience, to...

    President Barack Obama is tired of waiting for Congress to move on legislation to reduce carbon emissions, and his administration is poised to move forward on actions to do just that—including a move that will effectively eliminate the possibility of any new coal plant opening in the United States, experts say. "We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence," Obama said during his State of the Union address. "Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment...

    Trying to downplay what came out of Imam Shaker's mouth. His comments on the Western World makes one wonder why he lives in the West. He also mentions that every Muslim should memorize the Quran, or if they can't, Muslims should keep it in their pocket...... I wonder if he ever encourages Muslims to keep the US Constitution in their pocket? I do encourage everyone to watch the entire video, but I understand that not everyone has the patience that I have. That is the reason for this edit, as the average person will not watch a video longer than...

    (CNN) - Sen. Rand Paul cut another six-figure check to the United States Treasury Wednesday, taking the money he said he didn't need from his office's budget to make a tiny dent in the nation's massive federal debt. "We watch every purchase," Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, said at an event next to an oversized check for $600,000. "We watch what computers we buy, what paper we buy, the ink cartridges. We treat the money like it's our money, or your money, and we look at every expenditure." The $600,000 reflects more than 20% of Paul's annual office budget, according...

    CNN ^ | Feb 21, 2013 | Laura Smith-Spark
    M13 was the only bear known to have been living wild in Switzerland, according to the Swiss national broadcaster. Despite that status, the young male was shot Tuesday morning in Poschiavo Valley, in the Alps near the Italian border, by authorities who feared he was a threat to people. The creature also showed little fear of humans despite several attempts to get it away from villages, it said. There was so much concern about the bear's behavior, he was fitted with a radio collar so he could be closely monitored. Some questioned why he wasn't relocated or placed in a...

    Teacher job satisfaction has hit its lowest point in a quarter of a century, and 75 percent of principals believe their jobs have become too complex. The findings are part of the MetLife Survey of the American Teacher: Challenges for School Leadership. Conducted annually since 1984, the survey polled representative sampling of 1,000 teachers and 500 principals in K-12 schools across the country. Only 39 percent of teachers described themselves as very satisfied with their jobs on the latest survey. That's a 23-percentage point plummet since 2008, and a drop of five percentage points just over the past year. Factors...

    Business Insider ^ | 02/22/2013 | Walter Hickey
    The U.S. government is one week away from the sequester deadline, when $1.2 trillion of across-the-board spending cuts will go into effect. The budget slashing is set to hit everything from NASA to food inspectors, and members of both parties are alternately playing the blame game and trying to come up with a solution to avoid the cuts. Still, it's worth noting that there are some things the government spends money on that could definitely go. Each year, the conservative Heritage Foundation combs through the budget and points out some particularly egregious expenditures and redundancies. Here are forty cuts they've...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | February 21, 2013 | Richard Pollock
    A health insurance company headed by an old friend from Obama's days as a community organizer got a $340 million federal loan to establish Obamacare co-ops in New York, New Jersey and Oregon despite having a chronic record of consumer and regulatory complaints. The New York-based Freelancers Insurance Company has been rated the "worst" insurer for two straight years by state regulators, and data compiled by a national insurance association show an extremely high rate of consumer complaints. The firm was founded in 2008 by Sara Horowitz, who worked with Obama before his career in elective politics to launch Demos,...

    [A big thanks to everyone who sent emails, called, faxed, and attended the hearing.] A bill calling for banning assault weapons in New Mexico was tabled in committee Thursday night (Feb. 21) when Democrat and chairman of Consumer and Public Affairs sided with Republicans in a 3-2 vote.“I don’t think this is the time for this legislation right now,” Rep. Eliseo Lee Alcon, D-Milan. “I think something is going to be done on the federal level” since President Obama’s administration is advocating for gun control measures.House Bill 402 was sponsored by Rep. Stephen Easley, D-Santa Fe, and would have...

    NBC Chicago ^ | Feb 22, 2013 | Edward McClelland
    Emanuel allies insist that he has done much good for the city but it’s clear from the headlines that the dominant story of his time in office so far is the rising murder rate. The Chicago homicide rate in January was its highest in more than a decade and the Windy City has become a national talking point — and not in a good way — when it comes to violence. ... A Crain’s/Ipsos poll out Thursday finds that the mayor’s popularity has fallen sharply since voters were last surveyed in September: Just 2 percent of Chicagoans surveyed said they...

    National Review ^ | 02/22/2013
    For those convinced that President Obama doesn’t deserve any blame for the fiscal gridlock, let’s do a thought experiment. Let’s imagine that Mitt Romney was elected president, and was dealing with the same Congress that Obama has faced so much trouble in getting legislation to avert sequestration and myriad fiscal emergencies. Would a President Romney be confronting the same crisis? It’s impossible to know for sure, but a look at Romney’s compromising tendencies with a Democratic Legislature as governor of Massachusetts suggest that things would look very different. Romney cut his business and political profile as a deal-maker, reaching bipartisan...
  • Report: 47 Percent of Detroit Property Owners Pay No Taxes

    An estimated 47 percent of Detroit’s property owners pay no taxes, according to recent report from The Detroit News. n fact, according to The News, delinquency in the shattered city is so bad that that 77 blocks had only one owner who paid taxes in 2012. Yes, one person paid taxes in an area covering 77 blocks. Many of the people interviewed by The News said that they don’t understand why they should pay into a system that has failed to provide them with basic public services. “Why pay taxes?” asked Fred Phillips, who owes more than $2,600 on his...
  • Why used cars are scarce - and expensive

    American Thinker ^ | 02/22/2013 | David Paulin
    Yes, Obama's Cash for Clunkers program is definitely one reason used cars are in increasingly scarce supply-- and much pricier than they used to be. But another reason relates to something liberals despise: "trickle down" economics or, in respect to the increasing scarcity of used cars, the fact that low-income used car buyers do better when wealthier Americans (those who can afford new cars) do better. The reason used cars have gotten increasingly scarce and expensive is the subject of a Wall Street Journal article, "Amid New Car Boom, Used Cars Are Gold." Its observations are illuminating: The shortage of...

    HOUSTON -- The pastor of the young woman who indicted for murder five months after a road rage incident in northwest Harris County says that if the races were reversed there might not be a murder indictment at all. Crystal Scott, 23, shot and killed 22-year-old Jonathan Ables, September 17, 2012 ... The drivers had pulled into a Shell gas station at Perry and FM 1960 after Scott says Ables bumped her car. “Unfortunately the actions of an enraged man led to his untimely death,” said Scott’s pastor, Bishop James Dixon, II, who held a news conference on Wednesday --...

    The Hill ^ | 02/22/13 | Amie Parnes
    President Obama is displaying a more emotional side of his personality as he works to sell his second-term agenda to the public. The Spock-like Obama criticized for being aloof has been ditched in favor of a president who tells personal anecdotes about his life, shares locked-away thoughts from his past and on several occasions has wiped away a tear or two in public. While Obama has more flexibility to be himself now because he doesn’t face reelection, the personal touches are also in tune with a White House effort to enact an agenda that includes gun control, immigration reform and...

    Fiscal Times ^ | 02/22/2013 | JOSH BOAK and ERIC PIANIN
    With the automatic spending cuts kicking in next week, it’s tough to separate fact from bluster. Both the Obama administration and congressional Republicans chose this week to go with finger-pointing, a subtle acknowledgement that their differences on taxing and spending won’t be bridged by more negotiating. President Obama and his team warn of government services getting even worse if the $85 billion of across the board cuts in fiscal 2013 are allowed to kick in next Friday—cars stuck idling at under-staffed border posts, furloughed bureaucrats, fewer police and firefighters, thousands of hungry children kicked off government nutrition programs. Meanwhile, House...

    Lone Star State Governor Rick Perry seriously amped up his West Coast recruiting efforts this month in response to California’s passage of Proposition 30, a statewide vote that dramatically increased the state’s personal income tax rate. Taxpayers there will be paying up to 3% more on earned income, and that increase is retroactive to January 1, 2012. More than a thousand miles away from Sacramento, a far more positive outlook counters the frustration felt by many California employees and business owners. Just last week Governor Perry met with 200 Golden State business owners, and two weeks ago he purchased $24,000...
