    Media fraudulent pollsters you’ve been busted. Your fake numbers have been exposed by two very unlikely and probably unwilling sources. Last Friday the Leftist cheer leaders at the Third Way “think tank” made what had to be a very sad announcement for them. They told the world their researchers had found Democrat registration has fallen by 490,000 in just Ohio alone and without going into finer numbers had also declined by significant numbers in other important states. Florida Democrat registration is down 4.9% Iowa Democrats have lost 9.5% and remember that “thisclose” swing state of New Hampshire, the one that...

    Suppose there were a worldwide movement which openly proclaimed its goal of taking over in your country and every country with the purpose of imposing its system on every human beings on earth. Also suppose that this movement had carried out murders and terrorist attacks in your own country, that members of this group promoted violence while gaining political influence. Suppose also that is was highly unfashionable and politically incorrect to speak out against them. I am not speaking of Islam here, but of Communism. The current wave of censorship and denial toward Islam is not a new development. It...

    WE ARE THE 91%: Only 9% of Americans Cooperate with Pollsters byZombieBio September 30, 2012 - 2:57 pm Tweet One of the most amazing — and significant — statistics of this election season has gone almost completely unnoticed:Only 9% of sampled households gave an answer to pollsters in 2012: It has become increasingly difficult to contact potential respondents and to persuade them to participate. The percentage of households in a sample that are successfully interviewed – the response rate – has fallen dramatically. At Pew Research, the response rate of a typical telephone survey was 36% in 1997 and...

    Jussein Seats the Five Thousand 13 When Jussein heard what had happened in Benghazi, he withdrew by boat privately to Las Vegas. Hearing of this, the press followed him on foot from Manhattan. 14 When Jussein landed and heard of a large crowd in Milwaukee, he had compassion on them and Death Paneled their sick. 15 As evening approached, the MSM presstitutes came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and order pizza with their EBT cards on their Obamaphones.” 16 Jussein...

    Yesterday we asked "How Racist Is the Obama Phone Video?" It turns out that we didn't just need to explain the degree of the racism, but whether it was racist at all. After rallying around a video of a black woman explaining (incorrectly) that Obama had given her a free cell phone as a sure-fire way of boosting Mitt Romney's campaign ("I could see that video turned into an incredible ad. No voice over needed. Just let it play and at the end, 'I'm Mitt Romney and I approved this message.' Landslide."), some folks acted outraged that we would notice...

    Kicking Common Sense Down the Road- By: Larry Walker, Jr. -When one of today’s most brilliant liberal economists recently mentioned the European fiscal crisis, he said, “Spain is suffering the hangover from a huge housing bubble, which caused both an economic boom and a period of inflation that left Spanish industry uncompetitive with the rest of Europe. When the bubble burst, Spain was left with the difficult problem of regaining competitiveness, a painful process that will take years.”Yet, when far less knowledgeable left-wingers, including the President, speak of America’s economic woes, they routinely regurgitate the meaningless thread, “We are suffering...

    An interesting panel on using pop culture to advantage this morning. Madison Rising (Richard Mgrdechaian)was there, Alan Korwin, J. Neil Schulman and Peggy Tartaro. I had known J. Neil and Alan, but hadn't had a chance to talk to J. Neil yet, so I went up after his talk and arranged for a place to meet and catch up. "Tex" Fuller hit me at the door and suggested lunch. I told him I wanted to talk to J. Neil and he came along. They had never met, and did not know each other, but it soon became obvious that they...

    The US military and State Department aren't the only branches of the US government to "go gay." The FBI and CIA, the two main federal law enforcement and surveillance organizations, have fully embraced the homosexual and transgender movements, and appear to be poised to crack down on pro-family groups and citizens who are critical. For example, the FBI is actively recruiting homosexual and "transgender" employees and agents. The FBI's "careers" website now boasts a page advising potential (and current) job applicants. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has actually been involved with the homosexual movement for over 15 years, according to...

    In his regular appearance on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on Thursday, Mark Steyn, author of “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon,” noted what he said were absurdities in President Barack Obama’s address to the United Nations. Obama carved out new territory for a U.S. president during that speech when he said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” “He also said, I believe, that the future belongs to those who empower women,” Steyn said of Obama, ”and the power belongs to those who invest in education.” “It doesn’t quite add up to me, all...

    Over two centuries ago a group of British colonists huddling amid the forests and rivers of a new continent decided what they could and could not say by killing enough soldiers and mercenaries that the people who had been in charge of their speech decided they should try their luck somewhere where the regulating was easier. This state of affairs in which the country that those colonists formed became and remains one of the very few places in the world, even among Western democracies, where freedom of speech is absolute, came about through stirring speeches, deeply felt debates, classical ideas...

    Last night at the GRPC I went to a party hosted by Dead Patriot Films, who are working hard on "Assualted - Civil Rights Under Fire". Like all good projects, they need money. I will likely send them some after I get back to Arizona. http://www.deadpatriotfilms.com/assaulted/ At the party, I met people that just clicked. What are the chances of three guys talking, and it comes out that they all have had some familial experience with Asperger's? This morning, I was checking out of the hotel, and spot Mike Vanderboegh sitting in an armchair in the lobby. We greeted each...

    Education, if there’s anything more racist than that, it’s probably peanut butter or America. Sadly this will undoubtedly work, just as the lawsuit against the New York Fire Department’s racist test-based hiring practices worked. On Thursday, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund is filing a federal civil rights complaint, challenging the city’s admissions process for eight specialized high schools, including Stuyvesant, Bronx Science and Brooklyn Tech. “There is a single two-and-a-half hour multiple choice test that is the sole criterion for admissions,” said Rachel Kleinman of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. “So, no matter how good your grades are, no...

    Maybe if there are enough riots, they’ll burn down their own countries sparing everyone else the trouble. Mosab Hassan Yousef, a Palestinian who moved to Los Angeles several years ago, said he sees a compelling narrative film in that story and has already cast a “prominent Hollywood actor” in the title role of his film “Muhammad,” which has a proposed budget of $30 million. The film will tell the story of the prophet from age 12 to his death, and will have the look and feel of Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” Yousef said. “My goal is...

Jean-François Copé, the man who wants to succeed ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy at the head of France’s main right-wing party has caused a furore with a claim that “anti-white racism” is spreading through the country’s towns and cities. “An ‘anti-white racism’ is developing in neighbourhoods of our towns where individuals – some of whom have French nationality – express contempt for French people, calling them ‘Gaulois’, on the basis that they...

    I arrived at the GRPC yesterday evening after 6pm. While checking in David Kopel came up to the counter in running gear. An hour later, Mike Vanderboegh advised me on how to obtain a free internet connection. This is clearly the place to network on restoring the Second Amendment and the Constitution to the United States. Today, numerous panels discussed everything from how to overcome the MSM bias and tips on forming and running effective state organizations, to Awards to activists and breifings on what is happening with Fast and Furious. Everyone is quite approachable. I met with old friends...
  • 5 Reasons Your Email Is Not As Green As You Thought

    Are data centers for our digital lifestyle the equivalent of slaughterhouses for the meat industry, both huge facilities where the dirty work we’d rather not think about gets done? Every time we upload photos to Facebook, livestream a movie from Netflix, send an email with a PDF attached, we’re sending data through mega-sized data centers packed with rows on rows on rows of air-conditioned servers, each a “sort of bulked-up desktop computer, minus a screen and keyboard, that contains chips to process data,” says the New York Times. Here are five reasons your email is not as green and clean...

    While President Obama has been shown to have refused to publicly develop a personal relationships with any of the Middle East leaders, at least there is one of them that thinks exactly as he does concerning the role of America in the world. Our current President, in what some say is the result of his immersion in anti-colonialism, by his father’s writings and other mentor’s feelings concerning American and her ill-gotten position in the world, has set about to remove America from her leadership role in the world. His advisers have described this new role as “leading from behind.” The...
  • Why Does Our Society Look Down On Unemployed Men So Much?

    TEC ^ | 09/28/2012 | Michael Snyder
    If you are unemployed for an extended period of time, people are going to look at you differently. Unfortunately, this is especially true if you are a man. In our society, men are primarily defined by "what they do". If you have been unemployed for a long period of time, that can make social interactions even more awkward than normal. Most people will instantly become more uncomfortable around you when they find out that you are unemployed. Many will look at you with pity, and others will actually look at you with disdain. Women will not want to date you,...

A man who was very heavy fell on me and the lady behind me also covered me … They shot me in the arm and leg, and then they started again shooting those who were still alive in the head.
