    SHTF Plan ^ | 6/30/15 | Mac Slavo
    It was a seemingly normal Sunday — except it was anything but normal. For many people in Athens, it was time to prepare for an approaching storm. A short walk from Plaka, a line of people waited to withdraw cash from an A.T.M., hours before the official announcement that banks would be closed starting on Monday. Some bank machines in central Athens had run out of money or were out of service, as screens blamed “technical difficulties.” Elsewhere, some people had started hoarding gasoline and groceries. “We don’t know what the new day will bring,” said Katerina Vorreadi, who was...

    And he's pretty darn good too. Confession: I’m generally not a fan of these candidate-attempts-comedy bits, not only because they’re usually terrible but because I get a little tired of politicians trying to appeal to people on the basis of things that are irrelevant to the office they’re seeking. I really don’t care if I ever see Jeb Bush slow-jam the news on Jimmy Fallon, and needless to say I’d rather boil my skin in acid than see Hillary Clinton attempt to be funny in any way whatsoever. But dang. This is pretty good: It’s still no reason to vote...

    The headline is incendiary.  It is meant to be to show the double standard that has been inculcated in this country, and to show that black people are routinely treated fairly under the law.    There is a myth that has been built and supported by the old media that only white people can use guns in self defense.  The mythology erroneously states that if black people use guns in self defense, they will be jailed.  In fact, black people are using guns in self defense more and more, and they are finding that the law applies to them the...

    So the organization gave the money back. And now they want your help. A $50,000 donation is cause for celebration at the Queen Anne offices of the Girl Scouts of Western Washington. “We have these little clapper thingies, and the clappers go mad when we get that kind of gift,” says the council’s CEO, Megan Ferland. So when Ferland came back to the office earlier this spring and announced that she’d just landed a $100,000 donation, the place went mad. Not only did it represent nearly a quarter of the council’s annual fundraising goal, it would pay to send 500...

Ben Franklin It is already an amazing story about an amazing man, and I am not half way through its 586 pages — small type, no pictures! Benjamin Franklin: author, inventor, scientist, politician, raconteur. But he considered himself, first and foremost, to be a printer. And would generally sign his name, “Benjamin Franklin, printer.” For in that Colonial period, a printer was a...

    I can think of many ways to describe our relationship with Israel. Bipartisan is not one of them, although that is what Susan Rice–that paragon of veracity and honor–told Charlie Rose. However, because Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Congress at the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner, it has become a very partisan affair and, according to Rice, there would be repercussions. On its face this is a laughable statement coming from someone who knows better. Rice’s boss, the White House Mullah Obama, has directed her to denigrate Israel at every opportunity and in every possible way. Obama’s refusal...

    On June 25th, 2015, the majority of Supreme Court Justices, lead by Chief Justice Roberts, ruled that what the law says does not matter.   What matters is what the Justices want the law to say. This is an important break down in the rule of law.  We have seen it before from the Supreme Court, particularly from the Warren Court, and during the Roosevelt revolution of the 1930's and on.   There seemed to be a brief period in the early 2000s when the Court might actually follow the law of the land.  This was labelled by the left as...

Hodges opens another can of worms that is driving rhetoric in a way that misdirects people from the reality of its affect on religion and the free exercise thereof. No, this does not come from a lawyer, it comes from a missionary who, for more than 20 years, has delved into the legal entities that churches have embraced, essentially transforming their structure. And the change occurred innocently by way of the non-profit organization enticement. Here are some salient points: There is only one Law...

    Take government out of the equation and offer up "Civil Unions," "Free Choice" and "Benefit Distribution Licenses." The Supreme Court has ruled that gay marriage is the new norm. But the real question is, should the government have any say in what constitutes marriage at all? What if there was a way to stop the controversy? What if we took government out of the business of marriage completely? We have seen, over the past 6 years, government remove any signs of “Faith” from our schools, our government offices, our memorials, our military and our foreign policy. But why then, are...

He said he does not see Congress approving a bill allowing same sex marriage because it is against the Filipinos’ culture. “The law lives within the culture and not the other way around,” he said. In the same breath, Belmonte said he does not see efforts to have Congress pass a divorce bill succeeding. “I don’t think we are going into something like...

    Less than forty-eight hours after King Anthony sovereignly provided new theology for our secular, civil religion, the left is now publicly calling for the abolition of tax-exempt status for religious non-profits and churches. It will come. It has to come. If gay marriage is a fundamental right under the equal protection clause, it is going to trump a lot of the first amendment. As Chief Justice Roberts noted, King Anthony’s theology precludes “free exercise” of religion. But all of this is down the road a few years. Let me tell you what is going to happen first. Silence.

    For those genuinely interested in understanding Given the nature of the discussion following the gay marriage ruling last week, one thing that’s clear to me as a Christian who opposes gay marriage is that very few secular people - and sadly, by no means all Christians - really understand why Christians take the position we do. That’s why there is so much being said that doesn’t really reflect what Christians think. Some say we hate or we judge. Others say we are against love. Some think we’re threatened by homosexuals. Some think we object too vociferously because we secretly want...

The reaction of the people of Charleston, SC, and more specifically, the bereaved family members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church where such a heinous crime was committed, may give credence to Dr. King’s assessment.

How the Court arrived at this 6-3 decision has baffled many observers, and the ruling opinion written by Justice Roberts stuns those of us who believe that certain words matter, as Rob said last week.

Keeping in line with your propensity for not thinking things through, you’ve neglected to consider something very important—something that will affect the lives of people you claim to love.

    In a 5-4 decision, the US Supreme Court ruled that “victims of discrimination need not prove intent, disparate outcomes alone are evidence of illegal discrimination.” In a case where lending practices of banks were being contested, Justice Anthony Kennedy swept aside any need to show conscious intent to discriminate. “A bank may assert that ability to repay a loan is an objective criterion for making a loan, and so it would seem on the surface. But what if the ability to repay is unequally distributed along racial lines? That would mean that more whites than Blacks would receive loans. That’s...

And there’s really little point in mentioning that he was “opposed” to gay marriage as recently as 2012 when he announced his big evolution on the issue, because everyone knows he wasn’t really opposed at all. He pretended to be until he sensed correctly that the politics of the country were changing and it was OK to admit he was for it - which he had been all along. Anyway, if you’re a Christian who is...

In the 37 states where same-sex marriage is already legal, nothing happens.  Things simply go on as they have. In the 13 states where same-sex marriage is prohibited by state law and constitutional amendment, things are more complicated. Court cases will be filed, or existing cases in the federal court system will be handed down in accordance with the SCOTUS decision--meaning those amendments and laws will be struck down.

    "Thomas Cole, America's premier landscape painter of the 1820's and 1830's, constructed the idea for his series, The Course of Empire, from a variety of influences. He began his intense study of Europe and its art in 1829 by sailing to England, where he met and talked with influential artists such as J.M.W. Turner and John Martin. He studied the works of those artists and others in the British galleries of the time. Scholars recognize today that those artists' influence upon him was strikingly pervasive. Cole also felt the perishability of man's works when he traveled in Europe and saw...

    On my recent vacation to Meteor Crater and environs, I stopped at the rest areas along the way to check and see if the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) had done its job.  They needed to replace old signs that illegally banned guns in the rest areas.  When other travellers were available, I had them take my picture for use in this and future articles.   After the pretty young woman holding the child took my picture, I asked if I could take hers.   She was happy to pose for me.  Here is the picture she took of me at...

    The Dutch city of Utrecht is planning on experimenting with socialism to test its value and results. The Independent reports that the city has teamed up with University College Utrecht to observe “if a system of welfare without requirements will be successful.” The concept of basic income “is a universal, unconditional form of payment to individuals, which covers their living costs.” The basic income is supposed to help free up people schedules and work hours to provide more time to volunteer in the community, study at university, and care for others. …
  • Obergefell v. Hodges (2015): SCOTUS Decides on Same-Sex Marriage for all 50 States

    First, let us call this event for what it is: SCOTUS ruled that same-sex marriage is to be imposed upon all 50 states. A 5-to-4 majority of unelected judges with lifetime tenure standardized a law throughout the nation -- and in the process, over-ruled state laws that were enacted by referenda and elected representatives across the country. The effect was to close the debate for all time, making it so it is no longer subject to revision and review. I think you can figure where I’m coming from on this by now. I do not share the views with those...
  • Don’t Ban The Confederate Flag, Instead Ban The Blasphemous And Demonic Homosexual Flag

    Don’t ban the Confederate flag, instead they need to ban that blasphemous and demonic homosexual flag, that desecrates and mocks the beautiful image of the rainbow that signifies the covenant that God made with man never to flood the world again. Numerous states are now banning the Confederate flag. The Supreme Court, last week, ruled that states can ban the Confederate Flag. Now the governor of Virginia is saying that now is the time for license plates to no longer have the Confederate flag. Alabama removed the flag from its capital. Hilary Clinton just said that the flag “shouldn’t fly...

    This didn’t take long, did it? Faster than one can say “slippery slope,” quicker than the echoes of Chief Justice John Roberts’ warnings on the subject could dissipate, Politico Magazine published a rather lengthy appeal to the leaders of social liberalism to use the Obergefell decision to push for a constitutionally-recognized right for plural marriage. At least Frederick deBoer eschews the phrase the right side of history. He does conclude, however, that “it’s time,” so consider it implicit, like the constitutional right for same-sex marriage in the 14th Amendment: Most dispiriting, and least convincing, are those arguments that simply reconstitute...

    The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) wrote About “Cartoonists Under Fire” while ignoring Bosch Fawstin who was is literally under fire and under death threatsThe cartoon clowns of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund make a mockery of their icon (above). Bosch Fawstin wrote: The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, which I’ve been a supporter of until now, just released their issue of “Defender” which focuses on “Cartoonists Under Fire”, and they completely ignore the Mohammad cartoon contest & Garland jihadist attack where this cartoonist was Literally Under Fire. I’m pissed off. Bad enough I work in an industry...

    Mark Levin: Hey America! In the demoralizing despair all but overwhelming America with word that the Supreme Court has legalized same sex marriage, one clarion cry is calling out:“Hey America!” The voice belongs to talk show radio giant Mark Levin, and it is sending a clear message straight to America’s heart. Levin is urging Americans: ‘Don’t give up!” “Don’t ever give up!” Yesterday it was “the British are coming!” “Today it’s “the progressives are coming with whom we thought we voted in at midterms as the Opposition on their side!” The toughest day has come at the end of the...

    Coach is Right ^ | 6/26/15 | Doug Book
    Coach is Right recently alerted its readers to the importance of the upcoming Supreme Court decision in King v Burwell, a case which would determine whether the Internal Revenue Service had the authority—on the orders of Barack Obama–to re-interpret the Affordable Care Act in a manner favorable to Obama and contrary to the clear language and intent of the Act as written by Congress. Though Obama and members of his Regime have already re-written the Act (contrary to the Constitution) on 31 separate occasions, it was hoped—certainly it was never more than a hope—that the Court would uphold the will...

    Justice Anthony Kennedy, as expected, was the deciding vote and wrote the majority opinion. No state now has the right to define what marriage is. Just coming in, but we know it’s a 5-4 ruling, and it’s not limited in scope. Gay marriage is now the law in all 50 states - not because state legislators or voters approved it; in fact, many did just the opposite - but because the Supreme Court has invented a new right every bit as blatantly as it did in Roe v. Wade. Justice Anthony Kennedy, as expected, was the deciding vote and wrote...
