  • Abdul- Jabbar’s racism shows through with his attack on Dirk Nowitzki

    Coach is Right ^ | 2/11/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Recently we’re reminded of the jealousy and hatred some Black athletes feel toward White players who excel in a sport Blacks think they own. The stream of racist bile from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar directed toward the Dallas Mavericks’ future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki is a handy example of this. When asked about Nowitzki’s shot, Jabbar launched into a stupid and unsupportable racist attack on Nowitzki’s accomplishments as an NBA player. “You asked about Dirk Nowitzki. Dirk Nowitzki’s shot is very hard to block, but I don’t think that he was able to have a dominant career because he couldn’t do...
  • Trump may be Citizen Kane, but not Lonesome Rhodes

    Canada Free Press ^ | 02/11/16 | David L. Hunter
    An apt comparison is actually cinematic classic Citizen Kane, a man whose vast wealth fueled an even bigger ego, an obsessive need for public adoration and, like Trump, a birthright entitlement to high elective office Marc Fisher’s Washington Post comparison of Donald Trump to 1957s A Face in the Crowd fictional movie character Larry “Lonesome” Rhodes, an anti-hero played brilliantly by Andy Griffith, is a superficial one at best. University of Pennsylvania Ivy Leaguer, Mr. Trump may be a showman in the vein of P.T. Barnum—a candid, uncensored, larger than life presentation style like Rhodes—but the billionaire is no folksy...

    Dead men walking toward a certain tragic end While 111.9 million viewers, making it the third most-watched television event in U.S. history, were watching the Super Bowl—a perfect captive audience for Beyonce’s halftime political tribute to Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panthers, this is what the strong arm of the government was doing. In the U.S. government agencies were getting ready to impose solitary confinement on all 16 participants in the Oregon standoff, held in custody with no criminal charges laid against them. Even most terrorists are spared solitary confinement. But Islamic terrorists have free reign over civilians,...

  • Gun 'buyback' Transfers Guns to Legal Market, uses Funds to get more Guns 'off the streets'

    02/11/2016 5:17:41 AM PST · by marktwain · 22 replies
    Photo courtesy of Charles Tassell I have often written that gun turn in programs, also known by the propaganda term 'gun buy back' (you cannot 'buy back' a gun you never owned), would benefit by including private buyers so that more guns could be purchased from people who do not want them, and the proceeds recycled into more gun turn ins. The program would then be self sustaining and perpetual, serving to give people who do not want guns an easy way to legally dispose of them, while saving valuable resources and directing the guns into the legal market....

    The Nationalism Project ^ | 1882 | Ernest Renan
    III A nation is a soul, a spiritual principle. Two things, which in truth are but one, constitute this soul or spiritual principle. One lies in the past, one in the present. One is the possession in common of a rich legacy of memories; the other is present-day consent, the desire to live together, the will to perpetuate the value of the heritage that one has received in an undivided form. Man, Gentlemen, does not improvise. The nation, like the individual, is the culmination of a long past of endeavours, sacrifice, and devotion. Of all cults, that of the ancestors...

She did her best to make sure you knew about the horrific spiritual dangers that stem from voting for Bernie Sanders, and we did our best to get the message out. Yet, for whatever reason, you decided to ignore the eternal damnation of your mortal soul. Last night, women chose - in massive numbers - to turn their backs on Hillary Clinton.

    As the Republican primary process heads south, with the next stop in South Carolina, an important factor will be lurking just below the surface: The Democrat voters’ thirst for free stuff now, free stuff tomorrow and free stuff forever. The support for Comrade Bernie Sanders among young people, who by definition have always been pampered and paid for, shows a lop-sided tilt toward the lure of something for nothing. A final pre-New Hampshire survey among 18 to 30 year olds showed nearly 90% backed Sanders, a man who has promised everything with little mention of how these “goodies” would be...

    January of 2016 had the highest number of NICS checks for any January on record. There were 2,545,802 million checks, which translates to a bit less than 1.9 million new firearms. The industry is producing firearms as fast as they can, and they are being purchased just as fast. The demand side is crowded with first time buyers, women, and young urbans. Where will it end? Disarmists, those who wish us to be disarmed, constantly talk about "need". Need is something they seem to think that they are the only ones qualified to define. The idea of "need" is...

    The Supreme Court has decided to review certain elements in United States v. Texas. The Supreme Court should leave the injunction in place until a full trial on the merits. There is no urgency to decide this case so long as the administration is restrained from giving out benefits that would be difficult to revoke: work authorization and eligibility for various other benefits. Should the Court lift the injunction and endorse the administration's wildly broad claims of unlimited power to permit millions who are outside the rules stipulated by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) to remain here, then Congress...

So, let’s set the record straight by starting with the Constitution. There was an English Constitution, however, it was...

    On hearing that Michael Bloomberg, the former Mayor of New York City, is considering running as a third Party candidate the first thought that comes to the minds of conservatives is “Good. That will be the final nail in the Democrats’ coffin.” While that is very likely true, there is potential danger for America in a Bloomberg candidacy. If they haven’t already done so, the Democrat Establishment will have to have the behind closed, locked guarded doors talk they have dreaded for months. Whatever they might have hoped and wished for, the reality of their situation is that they are...

    In January of 2016, on the first day of the restoration of some open carry rights in Texas, I stood in front of the Benbrook Police Station, looking at the recently placed 30.06 and 30.07 signs. I noticed that the signs were not of the required dimensions, so they are likely not enforceable in a court of law. But police, like fire in the quote attributed to President Washington, (employed in various forms since the 1500's) are "dangerous servants and a fearful master". I tread lightly around police, just as I do around high explosives or high powered machinery....

    The feminist movement is dead. It died at the hands of Gloria Steinem. Cause of death was political strangulation. Gloria Steinem had made a name for herself for purporting to be a voice for women's rights beginning in the 60's and 70's. She was an icon for women for a long time but has repeatedly compromised her alleged principles for politics and her biases finally overtook her. Limbaugh's "feminazi" term has never been more appropriate. I began to loathe Steinem for her painful hypocrisy in the 90's when she (and HIllary) went Tammy Wynette during the Bill Clinton Presidency. She...

    That guitar he had destroyed for his movie The Hateful Eight was made in 1870. It was on loan from the Martin Guitar Museum.

Everyone on the set was distraught except Tarantino, who reportedly smiled: The head of the museum was furious when he found out the guitar had been wrecked not in a random accident, but because Tarantino had failed to tell Kurt Russell about...

But that hasn't dampened Republican efforts to pass a spate of strict voter ID laws since 2008. And it hasn't hurt the public's overall enthusiasm for those laws, either. But the results of a new working paper from political scientists at University of California, San Diego suggest folks may want to consider. The researchers analyzed turnout in recent elections...

    The National Review, that once considered go-to publication of all things conservative, seemed to have started a wave of Republican Establishment PIMOs (Professors in Mind Only) grabbing whatever publication, podium, or audience that was nearest and commenced on lecturing those contentious snotty sleeve wiping brats outside the beltway what is obvious to every blue blooded babe still in Gucci nappies inside the golden city are born knowing: We are your betters. We know how Washington D.C. is to be run. We already have decided who will be the nominee. The only reason we suffer you grubby little peasants is to...

    I'm a resolute opponent of the Democrat Party because I think the unborn are today's main Civil Rights victims, sex-driven excuses notwithstanding. But I have to give Dems credit, they are doing some real soul-searching about Clinton, that I don't see matched anywhere on the Republican side. I'm for Cruz, though I felt a strange sympathy seeing Rubio surge. But I don't really believe that Cruz, Rubio or Trump are really telling us what their policies will be. They are all holding their cards too close to their chests. They are using personality-drama to avoid making trustworthy commitments about what...

    Sanders wants to bring what he admired in the USSR, Cuba, Nicaragua, and other communist states to America. This may be an election that could seal the deal for the Progressive fundamental transformation of America, as 2016 is shaping up to be a watershed election. Socialists and Communists have run for the presidency many times in America. Between 1900 and 1920 Eugene V. Debs was the Socialist Party’s nominee in five presidential elections. The Communist Party USA has not disappeared.
  • Obama panders to Muslims at mosque, ignores Christian persecution

    Is there some kind of symbolism we're missing about Obama going first to the Islamic Society of Baltimore Mosque yesterday, then today to the National Prayer Breakfast? There are two names that no one will ever hear from the lips of President Barack Obama. The name of Jesus Christ is one, Islamic terrorism the other. Yet, the same man who demanded that Georgetown cover all symbols of Christ—including his Blessed Name, the tiny IHS that would have appeared directly over his head on the podium where he would be giving a speech—got to speak at the National Prayer Breakfast in...

    As of this writing, North Korea intends to launch another Unha-3 rocket, or a larger and more efficient version in a launch window falling between 8 – 25 February. This launch follows on the heels of a nuclear test conducted by North Korea on January 6, 2016, and the claim by Kim Jung-Un that the bomb was a hydrogen bomb. The MSM pundits and their positivist quacking "experts" all state the bomb was not a hydrogen bomb; however, experts such as Peter V. Pry disagree. What was discussed by Dr. Pry was the intentionally low-yield weapon test that would...

    Bras, garters, corsets, lingerie, handbags last week’s SHOT show was not just the site of new gun announcements. Companies took the opportunity to showcase a number of concealed carry options designed specifically for women. Personal and home protection is a foremost reason women own firearms, according to research conducted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The NSSF survey of women who owned at least one firearm found that more than 42 percent have a concealed carry permit. Many women need a way to carry firearms that is designed for the female body – not one designed for men and simply...

    A few weeks back, Tommy Robinson, former leader of the English Defence League, sent me his self-published memoirs, called Enemy of the State. The book has been largely ignored by most of the established media, although has caused a bit of a stir among counter-Jihadist groups across Europe. I’d recommend people read it, although perhaps not for the reasons Tommy would like you to. First up, I should say something about how it’s written. It’s chronological, starting from his childhood, and runs right up to the end of 2015. Tommy Robinson, whatever you think of him, has had a busy...

    I though Merkel said they were going back... or was that just more of her relentless B.S. Der Speigel: 'Not only refugee children who come to Germany from the Middle should learn a new language at school, but also German children.' This is the demand made by the president of the private Kuhne Logistics University in Hamburg, Thomas Strothotte. 'We should arrange it here so that German children learn Arabic' writes the IT professor in a guest editorial for the German weekly newsmagazine Die Zeit. _______________________ The professor says that German and Arabic should BOTH be mandatory for all...
