    Call volume shuts down FBI’s firearm background checks, stops Maine sales on Black Friday By Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN Staff Posted Nov. 23, 2012, at 4:30 p.m. BREWER, Maine — Sometime early on Black Friday, the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, went down and stopped all gun sales, Bangor-area gun dealers said. High call volumes caused “intermittent outages” in the system, an FBI spokesman confirmed Friday afternoon. “It means we can’t sell no damn guns,” Rick Lozier, a manager at Van Raymond Outfitters in Brewer, said at about 1:15 p.m. “NICS is down, which means nobody is...

    If there's been one consistent thread running through the U.S. economic story since 2008, it's been the steady drumbeat of gloom. Outright recession or sub-standard growth, stubbornly high unemployment and fiscal crises have been the topics du jour when it comes to the world's biggest economy. But now an unlikely champion for U.S. growth under the Obama administration has emerged -- a former adviser to a Republican Party presidential candidate and Harvard history professor, Niall Ferguson, who says America could actually be heading toward a new economic "golden age." And it has nothing to do with Washington and everything...

    It has been interesting, since the election, to see Republicans scramble and equivocate. Folks who seemed to be standing shoulder to shoulder before the election have turned their fire on one another and it seems almost to be a competition to disavow what until recently seemed to be bedrock Republican principles. First the Republicans lost the election, then they lost their nerve. No sooner had the votes been counted than the fingers started pointing. Republicans turned on one another and on the campaign they had waged, calling people extremists and policies outdated. According to any number of Republican Monday-morning quarterbacks,...

The fallacious foundation of Obama’s national security policy toward Islam, concealing the true aggressive, imperialistic character of Islam. 3. The blatant, dishonest effort to mislead the American people about the cause of the Benghazi Islamic terrorist attack and the death of four Americans. 4.

    Is Obama Always Faithful to our Marines? The current political winds in Washington, DC, have dictated that less will be spent on the various Branches of the Armed Forces of the Unites States. Case in point: the Commander-in-Chief has decided to fire 20,000 of our U.S. Marines. In an article published by San Diego, California's North County Times, ironically on Thanksgiving Day, Military Affairs reporter Gretel C. Kovach cites; "The Corps is shrinking by 20,000 Marines, to 182,100." The North County Times also cited that America's premier fighting force is; "scraping to repair or replace battle-worn equipment." In spite of...

    President Vladimir Putin could never have imagined anyone so ignorant or so willing to destroy their people like Obama much less seeing millions vote for someone like Obama. They read history in America don't they? Alas, the schools in the U.S. were conquered by the Communists long ago and history was revised thus paving the way for their Communist presidents. Obama has bailed out those businesses that voted for him and increased the debt to over 16 trillion with an ever increasing unemployment rate especially among blacks and other minorities. All the while promoting his agenda.

    If anyone worried that Kathryn Bigelow’s movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden would be a political statement promoting Barack Obama they can relax. Bigelow and Mark Boal have made a very focused and harrowing thriller that centers on the real life female CIA agent who was obsessed with catching and killing bin Laden.

    The White House "kill list"--a regularly updated chart showing the world's most wanted terrorists used by President Barack Obama during kill or capture debates--may soon be getting a rule book to go with it. Until now, President Obama has had the "final moral calculation" overseeing the "kill list," the existence of which was first revealed in May in the wake of a drone strike that killed an al-Qaida leader. But according to the paper, administration officials are looking to curb the power of the commander in chief with the rule book:

    ANALYSIS/OPINION: Breaking with tradition, this election cycle bypassed the “October Surprise,” unless you count finding out that Donald Trump is a complete idiot. (His “shocking news” on President Obama was his announcement that he was offering $5 million for the release of all drawings the Kenyan native did in kindergarten.) In the end, there wasn’t even a “November Surprise.” Americans, happy with their free stuff from the federal government and fully content to go $1 trillion in debt to get it, stuck with the status quo. The first post-partisan president divided America by class, sex, race, religion and America said,...

    Seventy hours ago, at this writing, while on Air Force One, President Barack Obama issued a press release that has been utterly ignored by the Western Press. The president has openly announced a move against violent plotters inside the US government and espionage agents. He does not use the terms “AIPAC” or “the Israel lobby” but it is highly unlikely he could be referring to anything else. In fact, we can think of no other group. http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/11/24/274332/aipac-decapitators-inside-us-govt/ Presidential Memorandum — National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs MEMORANDUM FOR THE HEADS OF EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENTS...

Simpson double murder says Barack Obama is confessing to stealing the 2012 president election. “Obama appears to unconsciously confess on multiple occasions that in his secret fury he stole the 2012 presidential election – continuing his attacks on our nation,” Andrew G. Hodges, M.D., told WND in an assessment of Obama.

    I have a slightly different perception of the recent election than many of my friends on the political right. I believe the Republican leadership must now be in some form of catatonic fixation about the results, seeming to believe anything but the obvious and clear: Americans reject the Republican philosophy. In reviewing the election cycle, some things are so clear they cannot be ignored. The Republican money machine must have known from the beginning that it could not win the election on a comparison of principle or policies. Instead, it salted the country with elected and appointed officials who distorted...

    After Obama was elected in his first term as president the then Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January of 2009. Ignored by the West as usual, Putin gave insightful and helpful advice to help the world economy and saying the world should avoid the Soviet mistake. Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes...

    To call Greece First World may be a stretch, but Greece has defaulted once already, and it is only a matter of time until Greece defaults again. Welcome to default-o-rama, the next chapter in the First World's struggle for fiscal sustainability. Japan is piling up debt in the manner of a nation beyond hope. France, Belgium, Spain and Italy are defaults waiting to happen unless Europe can somehow generate the kind of growth that has eluded it for decades. America's fiscal cliff is an artificial crisis. We have no trouble borrowing in the short term. But at some point the...

    What's to stop the next Republican president* from walking into the oval office and using executive fiat to immediately close the EPA, defund and/or cripple Obamacare, and phase out the foodstamp program, among other things? Or at least make the requirements insanely strict for foodstamps and disability to make sure it's only used by the truly indigent? Is it just that he/she would become insanely unpopular among 47% of people? Or is there some legal reason he/she couldn't? Because it seems Obama's administration has nothing stopping them from doing similar things. *assuming he/she would be willing to do this

    About eight years ago, I wrote a book called “What if George Bush were a Black Man?” The book was designed to analyze the vast impact that skin color has on our outcomes in a historically racist society. The summarized conclusion of the project was that disparities in the educational, economic and criminal justice systems give black men a much smaller margin of error than the one they would receive if they were white. A white kid in college caught using dope in a frat house gets a slap on the wrist. A black kid in the projects doing the...

    The Tea Party Tribune ^ | November 25, 2012 | Jonathon Moseley
    America faces a Fiscal Cliff in January. Well, no, actually, it doesn’t. In politics, alarmist language – like elections – can have real consequences. Political spin can be deceitful. Shakespeare asked “What’s in a name? A rose is a rose is a rose. That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” This may be thought-provoking and controversial: Yet the Tea Party should embrace the “Fiscal Baby Step” coming on January 1, 2013. Republicans should do absolutely nothing and sit on their hands. One exception: When the next vote comes up to raise the debt...

    Japan and Spain have been in the news quite a bit lately. Japan is notorious for selling more adult diapers than baby diapers (a sign of an aging population) while Spain’s fiscal woes have been the talk of Europe (European authorities will transfer 35 billion euros to Spain’s state bank rescue fund on December 15 in exchange for massive layoffs at Spain’s four nationalized banks, including state-rescued Bankia). In addition to their demographic (Japan) and fiscal (Spain) woes, both countries have been experiencing a deflation in house prices. While Spain had a housing bubble that burst in recent years (2008)...
