    SNIPPET - quote: Dissemination *_is_* collection I always get a kick out of people who tell me I give away intelligence for free. What I do is watch how information moves. Keep in mind that the subject covered on this site are pretty darn esoteric by most standards. What kind of people, for example, even know who Oussama Salhab is? Answers include: Oussama Salhab, his family, friends, associates in and out of Hizballah, people he does business with, spies of various nations, etc. Yep. The barn is free, and so is the food.
  • Mystery Company Is Rapidly Acquiring U.S. Gun and Ammo Manufacturers

    www.shtfplan.com ^ | December 8th, 2011 | Mac Slavo
    Reports that a mysterious company has been buying up U.S. gun manufacturers have been popping up on the internet for several months. When we first learned of the possibility that a single company was rapidly acquiring companies like Bushmaster, Remington, and Marlin Firearms we immediately suspected that something was amiss. Apparently, we were not alone, because others were thinking the same thing. One rumor that popped up was that global financier George Soros, historically an anti-gun advocate, was behind the moves, and that he was positioning the gun industry to reduce pro-gun lobbying efforts. This prompted the National Rifle Association...

    FRiends, another new year is about to dawn. As 2011 fades into the sunset, I celebrate the completion of one more year on FreeRepublic. Thirteen years have gone by since I signed up. I had been lurking here since the summer of 1998, and answered the call to attend the March for Justice on October 30, 1998 in Washington, DC. I came there on my own all the way from NJ, not knowing how many people might be there, and not really caring if I was the only one who showed up. What mattered was that a President was breaking...

    Although we all are aware that so many of the individuals in Obama's Chicago Thug Machine Club should be in jail, let's just look at a list of crimes that we would be sent to jail for of which "Obama Rats" are and have been getting away with. Voter Fraud, Lying Under Oath, Accidental Death, SEC Violations, Tax Evasion/Cheating, Political Bribery, Real Estate Corruption, Obama's ACORN Prostitution Ring Intentions, Mortgage Favors, And Maybe Racketeering.

    The New York Times ^ | December 26, 2011 | MICHAEL LUO
    ... In state after state, guns are being allowed in places once off-limits, like bars, college campuses and houses of worship. And gun rights advocates are seeking to expand the map still further, pushing federal legislation that would require states to honor other states’ concealed weapons permits. The House approved the bill last month; the Senate is expected to take it up next year. The bedrock argument for this movement is that permit holders are law-abiding citizens who should be able to carry guns in public to protect themselves. “These are people who have proven themselves to be among the...

They just don’t know when to quit. Consumed with the singular task of reelecting Barack Obama, progressives across the country will use the holiday season to propagandize their conservative relatives and friends. White House elves are directing the re-education Christmas camp efforts. On Tuesday, the Obama 2012 campaign released an instructional video titled “Home for the Holidays: Share Why You’re Working to Re-elect President Obama.” Instead of relaxing with loved ones, the president’s monomaniacal campaign staff...

    reason.com ^ | January 2012 | Thaddeus Russell
    I first learned about the contradictions of gun politics when I was about 10 years old, growing up in the radical milieu of 1970s Berkeley. My mother and stepfather were members of a revolutionary organization called the International Socialists. Although the group’s members were mostly bookish nerds with little taste for violence, their inspiration was Leon Trotsky, who led the Bolsheviks’ armed insurrection in 1917 and then headed up the Red Army, which killed hundreds of thousands of the Soviet regime’s opponents in the ensuing civil war. Because my parents’ politics were primarily an exercise in middle-class intellectual fantasy, I...

    “This is classic Sherlock Holmes ‘the-dog-didn’t-bark’ evidence” of cooperation between the progressive groups and the administration, Rivkin said. The groups “are always bitching about [legal] impunity, and how impunity encourages aberrant behavior and weakens deterrence,” he said. “So where is their outrage? Why are they not criticizing a war criminal going free?” If U.S. troops had committed war crimes and were let go, Rivkin told TheDC, “wouldn’t every newspaper in the country be horrified and slamming the administration? How is it better to let an enemy war criminal go [free] to be hailed and praised?”
  • Three National Polls on Republican Field Tell Consistent Story

    12/20/2011 9:23:24 AM PST · by Liberty1970 · 5 replies
    Three new polls came out today on the Republican race for the nomination. At first glance one seems way out of line with the others, until you tally up the numbers and notice that it only comes to 64%. (36% no response/undecideds, CBS? What's up with that?) So if you add 50% to the total for each candidate in the CBS poll below, you can see the results match the other polls to a very high degree. Here are the results, with my 'adjustments' for CBS in brackets: Candidate - CNN - ABC - CBS Gingrich - 28 - 30...

    More frightening than any particular beliefs or policies is an utter lack of any sense of a need to test those beliefs and policies against hard evidence. Mistakes can be corrected by those who pay attention to facts but dogmatism will not be corrected by those who are wedded to a vision. One of the most pervasive political visions of our time is the vision of liberals as compassionate and conservatives as less caring. It is liberals who advocate "forgiveness" of loans to Third World countries, a "living wage" for the poor and a "safety net" for all. But these...

    Here are three misconceptions that need to be put to rest. Misconception: Most of what Americans spend their money on is made in China. Fact: Just 2.7% of personal consumption expenditures go to Chinese-made goods and services. 88.5% of U.S. consumer spending is on American-made goods and services. I used that statistic in an article last week, and the response from readers was overwhelming: Hogwash. People just didn't believe it. (edit) Misconception: We owe most of our debt to China. Fact: China owns 7.8% of U.S. government debt outstanding. As of August, China owned $1.14 trillion of Treasuries. Government debt...

The mortgage banking industry’s own anti-fraud experts reported in writing to nearly every mortgage lender in 2006 that: “Stated income and reduced documentation loans speed up the approval process, but they are open invitations to fraudsters.” ....stated income loans deserve the nickname used by many in the industry, the ‘liar’s loan’”.

    This is a story about mad scientists. A true story. In 1932, the Education Establishment forced a new, unproven reading method on American public schools (the method was known at the time as Look-say). The results were disastrous. In 1936, an American doctor named Walter Freeman performed the first prefrontal lobotomy in the U.S. Ten years later Dr. Freeman created a more novel approach, which was called a transorbital lobotomy. He inserted a metal wire into the corner of each eye socket and swished the wire about until the prefrontal cortex was scrambled. Remarkably, this so-called “icepick lobotomy” could be...

    For the United States, it should put its house in order before chiding others. Since the onset of U.S. subprime crisis in 2007, it was the country's domestic economic problems that triggered a disastrous financial crisis that swept the world. Excessive spending for many years has added up debts. Meanwhile, traditional strong industries such as finance and auto were devastated by the crisis, pushing up unemployment. In face of such serious domestic problems which probably could trigger a new global economic tsunami, many U.S. politicians seemed only to care about how many votes they could get, without having a single...

New policies--and new experts--are needed.) -------------- The new National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) figures show that only 35% of our younger students are "proficient" in reading, and only slightly more are "proficient" in math. That word suggests a low standard. In any case, these statistics are screaming the real news: roughly TWO-THIRDS of American 10-year olds are effectively illiterate; and they can't do much in math either. It’s the same story with 14-year-olds. (NAEP tests only fourth-graders and...

    Take with a HUGE grain of salt… Huge. Conservative talk show host, Dr Gina Louden, says that she has “information from a reliable source,” that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is reconsidering a run for the White House in 2012. Sarah Palin announced on October 5, that she would not be running in 2012 and that she would not run third party.

    What's The Difference Between Retiring In Canada And America? "American and Canadian governments provide many of the same types of services to those planning for retirement.

Other, less prominent members of the Obama lineage, go about their business unperturbed in...
