    Aaron Swartz, 26-year-old genius, computer prodigy, co-creator of RSS and Reddit, is dead. Swartz committed suicide in the wake of relentless bullying and persecution/prosecution by Eric Holder's Department of Justice. Swartz was "driven to the edge" by the government's aggressive prosecution of a non-existent legal case. Swartz made public documents available to everyone -- this was his crime. “It’s like trying to put someone in jail for allegedly checking too many books out of the library.” Put this in context. Obama's DoJ, headed by Eric Holder, refused to prosecute thr Black Panthers who violently threatened voters with billy clubs and...

    "My office will not comply with any federal actions which violate the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold," Jackson County Sheriff Denny Peyman said. FRANKFORT -- An Eastern Kentucky sheriff said Saturday that he will not enforce any new gun control laws that he considers unconstitutional. Asked whether such a stance makes him more a judge than a law-enforcement official, Jackson County Sheriff Denny Peyman said he has "a team of attorneys to step up with me if necessary to be sure the Second Amendment is upheld." "I consider this a moral obligation," he...

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell — who split with the Republican Party to endorse President Barack Obama two times — said Sunday there are some clearly racial elements within the GOP. “There’s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party,” Powell said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “What do I mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities.” While not mentioning former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin or former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu by name, Powell referenced past comments from each about Obama as evidence of...

    Life in the Time of Low Information VotersI used to love American popular culture. I found it rich, diverse and endlessly amusing. These days, I rarely go to the movies or plays and cannot bear to watch television. Even the radio with its repetitive, uninformative news snippets annoys. Our popular culture has moved from family favorites like Your Show of Shows, The Wonder Years, and I Love Lucy to the minute by minute coverage of celebrities not known for their wit, charm, or beauty, They are known for nothing other than the willingness to put their every part of bodies...

  • U.S. Spending to Prevent New 'Fiscal Cliff' (and collapse of kingdom)

    U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor ^ | Jan. 12, 2013 | Steve Peacock
    Congress and the Obama administration have averted, for now, plunging the nation over the so-called “fiscal cliff” by postponing spending cuts and raising taxes on American families by $620 billion and confirming plans to try to bill taxpayers for another $1 trillion. Now the White House is spending millions collected from those same taxpayers to avoid another “fiscal cliff” – this time in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The payments are going to contractors who are tasked with keeping Jordan and other similarly situated nations from falling off those financial precipices. Part of the solution rests in more privatization of...

    How bad is the USA’s debt problem (as we approach the dreaded debt ceiling debate)? Federal government debt held by the public surged starting in Q2 2008. But since Q2 2008, government debt held by the public surged 113%. But real GDP growth over 4+ years was a measly 2.6%. That’s not annual real GDP growth, but real GDP growth over 4+ years! Most people don’t talk about government debt held by the public. Instead, they focus on Total Public Debt, the one that stands at $16,432,692,129,510.84 While not as dramatic as Federal debt held by the public, it is...
  • Replacing Louis Giglio: IRD’s Helpful Benediction List

    Juicy Ecumenism ^ | Jeffrey Walton
    Following the announcement and subsequent withdrawal of Evangelical pastor and Anti-Trafficking crusader Louie Giglio to offer a closing prayer at the Presidential Inauguration, several liberal groups have helpfully offered their own suggestions to replace Giglio. The lists, mostly featuring liberal clergy from rapidly declining Oldline denominations, seem to miss the point: according to Addie Whisenant, the Presidential Inauguration Committee spokesperson, “Pastor Giglio was asked to deliver the benediction in large part for his leadership in combating human trafficking around the world.” Giglio was selected by the inaugural committee to close the ceremony not just because he was a clergyman (indeed,...

    When the Supreme Court, or any other court for that matter, makes a ruling in a case they first look for precedent, in other words to see if there has been a court decision rendered on the same subject in the past and usually defer to the old decision in ruling on the case. The greatest teacher in life is experience; it only takes one time of burning your fingers on a hot stove to know that you never want to touch another one. The next greatest teacher is observation, paying attention to someone else's experiences and profiting from their...

    I’m sure most of us have read the so-called comparison of Lincoln and Kennedy, but did you ever consider the relationship between Obama and Lincoln? You might be surprised. Parallels of Abraham Lincoln and Barack Hussein Obama: 1. Lincoln placed his hand on the Bible for his inauguration. Obama used the same Bible. 2. Lincoln came from Illinois. Obama comes from Illinois. 3. Lincoln served in the Illinois Legislature. Obama served in the Illinois Legislature. 4. Lincoln had very little experience before becoming President.

    The bible says the world won't go out like a lion.. but rather in several small steps. This also happens to be how communism, socialism are taking over America. In the last days Christians won't be able to participate in society without taking the mark of the beast. That means no food, ability to use money or other active participation in society. Obama has got the ball rolling with Obamacare. The first small step. Christians can have a business. But they'll be expected to contribute to the Health Care Law, which pays monies for abortions. Knowing real Christians won't accept...

    Catholic League president Bill Donohue said in a press release that Barack Obama should use Karl Marx's "Das Kapital" instead of the Bible when he takes his oath of office later this month, the Huffington Post reported Friday. "Given Obama’s ideology, perhaps it would make more sense for him to swear on Das Kapital," Donohue wrote. Donohue issued his release in response to comments made by MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, who suggested that Obama should not use the Bible in his swearing-in ceremony. "O’Donnell starts his rant by focusing on Atlanta Pastor Louie Giglio; the evangelical minister bowed to pressure from...

    PolicyMic ^ | January 12, 2013 | George Ertel
    In the three years President Barack Obama represented Illinois in the Senate, he became aware of maverick Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.). They served together on the Foreign Relations committee. It became clear to both men that they shared an antipathy for the war as well as for then-President Bush. In 2008, as Obama ran for the presidency, Hagel joined him on a tour of Iraq and Afghanistan. Once Obama was elected, Hagel, having retired from the Senate after two terms, served on the president's Intelligence Advisory and Defense Policy Boards. In January, President Obama nominated Hagel to be the country's...

    The Center for American Progress is recommending 13 new gun policies to the White House — some of them executive actions that would not require the approval of Congress — in what amounts to the progressive community’s wish list. CAP’s recommendations, presented Friday to White House officials and detailed in an 11-page report obtained by The Washington Post, establish a benchmark for what many in Obama’s liberal base are urging him to do after last month’s massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. CAP’s proposals — which include requiring universal background checks, banning military-grade assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition...

    WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to push Congress to move quickly in the coming months on an ambitious overhaul of the immigration system that would include a path to citizenship for most of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country, senior administration officials and lawmakers said last week. Mr. Obama and Senate Democrats will propose the changes in one comprehensive bill, the officials said, resisting efforts by some Republicans to break the overhaul into smaller pieces — separately addressing young illegal immigrants, migrant farmworkers or highly skilled foreigners — which might be easier for reluctant members of their party...

    Economist and humorist Ben Stein placed the responsibility of gun violence on Monday squarely on a media culture that shows “guns resolving problems.” “I don’t really think, with all due respect, that guns are the problem. I’m sure I’m going to get a lot of hate mail for saying this,” he said. “It has to do, in my humble opinion, with how much people are brainwashed by Hollywood into thinking that the solution to all their problems is a gun.” He continued, slamming violent video games: “After a while, I think, the distraction between the imaginary and real is blurred...

    A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty. The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho. The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who "voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson's ideal of Rightful Liberty." According to the Citadel website, Rightful Liberty means that "neighbors keep their noses out of other neighbors' business, that neighbors live and let live." Citadel explains that residents in the community will be bound...

    The White House flatly rejected Saturday the proposal for President Obama to bypass Congress in raising the nation’s borrowing limit, a day after the Senate’s top Democrats urged Mr. Obama to take that step. “There are only two options to deal with the debt limit: Congress can pay its bills, or it can fail to act and put the nation into default,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement. “Congress needs to do its job.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, and other Democratic lawmakers wrote to Mr. Obama Friday urging that the president perform an...
