    A government unloosed from its authorizing document, in open revolt against the principles laid out and defined therein, with the will, intent and ability to execute citizens for trivial offenses, basically parking tickets (oops, forgot to feed the meter on the cattle) is, by definition, a domestic terrorist. The politicians and agents involved in such criminal activity as theft of property (water rights in U.S. v Hage a similar, but much more egregious case than the issue with Cliven Bundy) involving the BLM, determined by the judge to be involved in a criminal conspiracy is the definition of domestic terrorists....

    2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the landmark, and highly entertaining television show "Good Times." The Norman Lear created sit com focused on day to lives of the Evans family, living in the Cabrini Green housing project in Chicago. While the Evans clan was most certainly poor, the fictional family lived up to the show's title in that what they lacked in material possessions, they more than made up for this in the love that was ever present in nearly every episode. The show was a breakthrough at the time of its debut not only in that it had an...

    Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed HB 2103 yesterday, the 17th of April, 2014.  The bill reforms concealed carry permit qualifications in the state, allowing people with military service to obtain a permit at 19 years of age.  From trendtrack.com: E. The department of public safety shall issue a permit to an applicant who meets all of the following conditions: 1. Is a resident of this state or a United States citizen. 2.  Is twenty‑one years of age or older or is at least nineteen years of age and provides evidence of current military service or proof of honorable discharge or...

    Not surprisingly, the FOX News van carried the only media members covering an unfolding story in which dozens, possibly hundreds of Americans were facing death at the hands of Barack Obamas, armed Bureau of Land Management mercenaries. And make no mistake, Nevada BLM personnel also escaped the possibility of thousands descending upon their offices, only because cooler heads prevailed. The video which follows shows just how close this fraudulent tale of the habitat of desert tortoises came to being a disaster. Whether Harry Reid and his sniveling son were involved in engineering the week-long, federal intimidation of Cliven Bundy and...

    Photo from the ATF letter. Sig Sauer never contended that the muzzle brake would not function as part of a gun muffler/silencer/suppressor Sig Sauer, Inc., the well respected firearms manufacturer, has filed suit against B. Todd Jones as the Director of the ATF for ruling that the muzzle brake that they submitted for evaluation is "a part intended only for use in the assembly or fabrication of a silencer and therefore is a silencer..." as defined in U.S. statutes. The case document can be read here. It is nine pages long, and makes a fascinating read. Sig Sauer Inc.,...

    Once upon a time there were more than fifty cattle ranches operating in the area of Southern Nevada where Cliven Bundy, with the help of numerous armed patriots from all over, is making his stand against the abusive, bankrupting tactics of the bullying federal government. Now, there is only one rancher and his family left. After several generations of his ancestors having use of the land in question, Bundy is literally the last man standing in what is, evidently, a long-range vendetta against ranchers by land-grabbing federal bureaucrats who, also literally, have gone power madthat is, mad for solar power...

    A story in the Arizona Daily Star about an anti-second amendment group included a poll on whether gun laws needed to be stronger, changed a little, kept the same, or reduced. From the Star: Do you think we need more laws placing restrictions on guns? Yes. We need much stronger laws. Yes, but only a few common-sense changes. No. The laws are OK the way they are. No. We have too many laws, and most of them should be eliminated. What is interesting about this poll is the last choice. It is almost never given on these old...

    The label of fringe is a common one used by statists, bureaucrats and paid shills in order to marginalize those who would stand against government corruption.

The liberty movement, which is a collection of numerous freedom organizations and political activists brought together by a shared philosophical bond, has been accused of fringe status for quite some time. With corporatist dominance over the mainstream media for decades backing an elitist machine in Washington and a global banking cartel footing the...

A soccer fan was arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred after allegedly ripping up pages of the Quran and throwing them at a match. While on bail, he was also banned from attending any football games, visiting St Andrew's - the stadium of the incident -, and going to any city where his team Middlesbrough was playing.

I still remember a few of my high school teachers who encouraged me, and taught me more about life than just the curriculum in the classroom. My kids won't be going to public school though. It's not about the teachers. Most teachers work hard, care deeply about their students, and do their best to educate our kids. By educate, I mean not just teach the material, but help our kidsunderstand what learning is, and help...

    Data provided by the FBI The United States has one of the highest per capita numbers of firearms in the world. It is estimated that there is about one gun for each man, woman and child in the United States, about 310 million firearms. Every year, some of those firearms are stolen, breaking any official chain of ownership. In any given year, the percentage of firearms reported stolen is fairly small. In 2013, 191 thousand firearms were reported stolen to the NCIC. That is about .06 percent of the total firearms in private hands. Not six percent, but six...

    In the last presidential election, Mitt Romney was savaged by the media and the cultural elites for pointing out that 47 percent of voters will vote for Obama as they're getting subsidies from the federal, state, or local governments. Romney was vilified as an evil, out-of-teach aristocrat that despised the less fortunate. The truth is the exact opposite as we know that Romney gives generously to the charity, unlike Obama and his progressive liberal allies, and that he created companies that actually hired people and paid them wages, again unlike most liberals. The 47 percent number was mocked as not...

    The captives who have been dumped by their healthcare insurance companies on Barack Obamas orders are beginning to feel the pain Obama meant them to experience. Obamacare was and always will be nothing more than a stick with which to flog Americans into lining up and marching into a single payer system. Single payer is a system that involves the government paying healthcare providers what the government thinks their services are worth. The details that we have been able to dig out of Obamacare include the fact that doctors salaries will be determined by the government. Moreover there will be...

While government surveillance of gun purchases and gun owners is nothing new, a recent visit by an FBI Counterterrorism agent to a Columbia, South Carolina gun shop has only reinforced the knowledge that the U.S. government is growing more and more concerned by the prospect of a well-armed populace – particularly one that prefers to live without constant government interference in their personal lives.

    I've written about the hijacking of language by the Left and some of its manifestations.

For example: "Everyone knows what they are doing" or "The user must log in with their password". This is done only because it's politically incorrect to use "he", "him", "his", to cover both men and women, as it allegedly gives men a status of superiority (the same as in saying "man" to mean "the human species"). Politically correct writers...

Cliven Bundy is a rancher who lives outside of Mesquite, Nevada. His family has been ranching on that land since before Nevada became a State. The Bureau of Land Management, BLM, claims control of the land the Bundys graze their cattle on. Bundy’s position, in a nutshell, is “I was here first”. But like I said, the right or...

    Call them breast-obsessed if you like, but more than 3500 years ago, Egyptian physicians documented breast cancer on papyri that survive to this day. Some authorities claim that these documents could date back much earlier than that. A key entry describes bulging tumors of the breast that have no cure. From Hippocrates on, causes of the disease were proffered by the leading minds of the day. These would include excess of black bile; lack of sexual activity; overly vigorous sexual activity; depression; childlessness, and sedentary lifestyle. Famed French physician Henri Le Dran was among the first to advocate surgical removal...

    Changes to this year's census will make it difficult to assess how many people gained health insurance as a result of ObamaCare's first year of open enrollment, according to a report. The reported overhaul of census questions on health insurance arrives as politicians, journalists and researchers await official data on how many people gained and lost coverage in the last year. The changes are reportedly intended to improve the survey's accuracy. They will likely mark a "break in trend" for census health insurance data, making it hard to compared the 2014 report to past reports. The revisions and their potential...

It obtains its authority directly from the Constitution, and in fact, prior to that, the Articles of Confederation. There has been an unbroken chain of Federal management of public lands since the founding of our country, first by the Treasury Department, then the War Department, followed by the General Land Office, and more recently, the BLM. In the case of Bundy, the odds and the law are most definitely stacked against him. What we must consider, as policy, is how the Federal government manages its considerable...

    Federal officials appear to be waiting out Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters. Two days after a dispute over grazing rights, cattle and $1 million in fees and fines threatened to spin into a Wild West shootout, officials with the Bureau of Land Management promised they werent finished with Bundy. The BLM will continue to work to resolve the matter administratively and judicially, BLM Director Neil Kornze said in a statement that followed the Bureaus decision to release nearly 400 head of Bundys cattle that had been seized as part of a fight over grazing fees. Spokesman Craig Leff...

    Recent weeks have led to a fairly significant drop in stock valuations, with many expert analysts struggling to figure out exactly why its happening. Youll hear them cite the weather, or market overreaction, or any number of reasons for why stocks have seen their share prices reduced and why theyll be rebounding in the near-term. What they wont show you on mainstream financial channels is whats really happening behind the scenes. Forget about all the minute-by-minute noise for a moment and take a look at the following chart. It gives a very simple overview of earnings growth trends for stocks...

    According to Mack, the so-called retreat was nothing more than theatrics. It was a ploy to get people to back off, to get people out of the way. They werent expecting us to get this amount of people here. They were surprised by the numbers and so they wanted a way to get us out of here. This was a ploy to get us out of here and then theyre going after the Bundys. Mack said that when he was at the Bundy ranch on Saturday there were an estimated 600 to 800 protesters present when federal agents were releasing...

    An entire new feedback loop ofaccreditationis necessary in the economy we have, andfortunately that feedback is within our individual control.To paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, we work in the economy we have, not the economy we might want or wish to have at a later time.And what characterizes the economy we have?It'sbewilderingbecause nothing works like it's supposed to.For example, getting a college degree was supposed to guarantee a good job and an 80% lifetime wage premium over people without college degrees.But in the economy we have, getting a college degree no longer guarantees a good job, or indeed, a job of any...

    Attorney General Eric Holder said he was careful not to allude to a racial component when criticizing Congresss treatment of him last week. "I didn't say there was a racial component. I was very careful not to say that," Holder told The Huffington Post on Monday. Last week, Holder told a civil rights group he and President Obamas administration have been subject to "unprecedented" and "ugly" attacks. He asked what attorney general or president in history had to deal with the same. Instead of race, Holder said he was alluding to the "breakdown in civility" and the ability to cultivate...

    For the past few years we have watched Barack Obama try to put guns in the hands of government officials who would willingly turn them on other Americans. Many of us worried that he had succeeded. Saturday we learned that so far he has failed in this effort. On Saturday, freedom won a great victory over the oppressive machine the American government has become. Standing shoulder to shoulder a determined band of American patriots turned on the heavily armed thugs of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and shouted No! When the noise subsided and the dust settled the BLM...
