  • Democrats Make Support for Abortion Mandatory [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 30 Apr 2017 | John Semmens
    Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez declared that support for abortion is now a requirement for anyone who wants to run for office as a Democrat. "Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman's right to make her own choices about her body and her health," Perez said. "That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state." "Democrats who believe that abortion is murder should keep this opinion to themselves for the sake of the Party," Perez explained. "We're not saying a person can't think this, only that he must not say this...
  • Trigger-warning Tyrants

    Spoiled, self-absorbed, tyrannical brats: Remember, people who cannot be reasoned with, can only be fought. People like thinking the best of themselves, which is partially why we have “trigger warnings,” “microaggressions” and claims of “taking offense”—so these complainers don’t have to come to terms with the fact they’re spoiled, self-absorbed, tyrannical brats. Here’s how it works: When accusing you of “microaggressing,” the truth is that, generally, these snowflakes just don’t happen to like what you’re saying. But shouting “Shut up! I hate that type of expression!” makes you seem intolerant. So to preserve your image and self-image, you use the...

    We have withered. We have lost our will. We have allowed our complacency to place our liberty at risk. Therefore, our liberty is fading With time things wither away. We lose our youth, our friends, and our things. As with life, liberty has grown old, and is at risk of being forgotten and tossed aside. Thus, is the reality of the cycles of time. In history we can see that systems of liberty always begin with courage and virtue, only to wither away under the assault of tyrants and complacency. The Roman Republic became an empire, and the Saxons gave...

    Every day brings us closer to what I'm convinced will be a VERY UGLY time in what remains of America, the IDEA! The "progressives" (aka "communists") will continue pushing until they provoke a reaction from those who still remember what freedom was. As was the case in 1775, the flash point will almost certainly be a thrust to seize private firearms and related items. It is then that we will see what their plans are for those MILLIONS OF ROUNDS of ammunition and thousands of weapons now in the hands of previously UNARMED bureaucracies. Oh, did I mention that millions...
  • Hammonds to serve 5 years in prison [ Oregon ranchers vs BLM ]

    Oregon Farm Bureau ^ | October 7, 2015 | Barry Bushue
    Today two Oregon ranchers were sentenced to five years in federal prison under terrorism statutes for setting preventative fires on their own land. We are gravely disappointed at this outcome. “Elderly Harney County rancher Dwight Hammond and his son, Steven, a former OFB Board member and Harney County Farm Bureau president, have already served time in federal prison for their mistakes and paid their debt to society for the less-than-140 acres of BLM land that was accidentally impacted by the fires. “This is an example of gross government overreach, and the public should be outraged. “Today’s verdict is also hypocritical...

    Perhaps the most enduring legacy of the Declaration of Independence is that it sought to overturn the long abuses and powers of tyrants. It revealed the truth of self-government and that power is inherent in the people. In the second introduction of the document, Jefferson declared: …That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and...

    Smoke wafting from wood fires has long provided a familiar winter smell in many parts of the country -- and, in some cases, a foggy haze that has filled people's lungs with fine particles that can cause coughing and wheezing. Citing health concerns, the Environmental Protection Agency now is pressing ahead with regulations to significantly limit the pollution from newly manufactured residential wood heaters. But some of the states with the most wood smoke -- including Minnesota and Wisconsin -- are refusing to go along, claiming that the EPA's new rules could leave low-income residents in the cold. Missouri and...

    Internet is a medium by which every one may publish to every one. The medium must not can not be regulated. Regulation is an abridgment of the freedom of speech and of "the press" Internet is “the tyrant’s foe, and the people’s friend” The FCC is seizing control of the medium. They claim laws of the 1930's as their authority. The 1930's are well before computers and internet existed. The FCC has no authority to regulate the medium. There can be no authority to control the medium.

    FDR, the man who studied Mussolini, who birthed the current intrusive state, who started the drug war in earnest, who put Japanese Americans into concentration camps, who extended the Depression years longer than it needed to be and thereby contributed to the genesis of the Second World War, who tried to pack the Supreme Court, who gave away half of Europe to the Soviets at Yalta, and who confiscated the gold – the real wealth – of the American people. What a guy. And he still has his face on the dime. There is a reason why my grandmother, a...
  • CUBAN GOVERNMENT SINKS BOAT CARRYING 32 REFUGEES, INCLUDING CHILDREN

    The maritime horror that has become a centerpiece of the Cuban experience will continue even after President Obama’s overtures to the communist regime, it appears. According to witnesses aboard, the Cuban government sank a boat attempting to reach American shores carrying 32 people, including an 8-year-old child, and some passengers remain missing. The Miami Herald reports that Masiel González Castellano, a woman who was aboard the boat with her husband and 8-year-old son, told reporters her husband remains missing after the assault. She and all those the government could pick out of the water were arrested, and the men remain under custody. “We...

    President Obama’s remarks to the UN General Assembly also mark the first time a sitting U.S. President has ever chaired a Security Council meeting.  His remarks were a mixture of retreaded Bush speeches about the evil of terrorism, and cheerleading language like “Islam teaches peace,” versus ISIS, who is “hiding behind a false Islam."  At the end, Obama couldn’t help himself from apologizing for America’s problems, as if the world needs our apology. I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided....

    The totalitarian impulse is all too familiar: since I represent Progress (and, of course, everyone who acts in the political realm fervently believes that he represents Progress) those who stand in my way are retrograde–evil, really–forces, that belong in the dustbin of history. Therefore, I might have to lock them up or kill them to ensure that Progress prevails. Until recently, the totalitarian impulse has been blessedly absent from American politics. Now, however, the American left has caught the totalitarian bug that infected Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Castro, and so many others. A case in point:...

    Younger generations can be forgiven if all they know of war is what they have learned in school or seen dramatized on film and television. For most Americans, the Civil War, the two World Wars, and the conflicts in Korea and Vietnam are events that occurred “a long time ago.” For my generation, born just prior to or during World War Two, wars have been a constant element of our lives.

    Do Christians Have a Duty to Remove Bad Officials From Office? In the previous article we asked, “Do Americans have a right to oppose unjust authority?” Such a right was obviously assumed by the Founders. We likewise examined whether Christians have such a right, as well. In answer, we found the earliest theories regarding what became Resistance Theory resulted from the assumptions of the Protestant Reformation being applied to society during various crises involving early Protestant communities. Therefore, whether such a right truly exists, the entire theory was proposed by Protestants, using biblical, historic and classical arguments, ostensibly to achieve...

    Less than three weeks after the publicity surrounding Payhembury School in Devon, where the school staff have been pressured into bussing their pupils into a highly multiracial part of London on ‘exchange’ trips designed to promote multiculturalism and multiracialism, another school has been singled out for attack by Ofsted inspectors because of alleged ‘racist’ bullying, even though the pupils are all White. Payhembury School in Devon was criticised in its 2010 Ofsted report because all of the pupils attending the school are White and because the school is situated in an all White area. Payhembury School was graded merely, ‘good’,...
  • McAuliffe says he'll expand Medicaid by executive action (Vetos funds for New Judge Appointments)

    RICHMOND— Gov. Terry McAuliffe plans to expand Medicaid by executive action, he said Friday, sidestepping a Republican-controlled General Assembly that has blocked expansion through legislative action. McAuliffe also said he will veto sections of the state budget, including language meant to block expansion by fiat. His administration is looking at a number of options - which the governor did not detail - and expects to have a formal plan by September. The move leads Virginia into complex legal ground on arguably the most divisive political issue in the state. The governor said he'll allow most the spending plan to become...

    emissions by nearly 41 percent over the next 15 years as part of a sweeping plan President Barack Obama announced Monday to reduce pollution from power plants. Obama's plan calls for a 30 percent reduction in carbon emissions nationwide by 2030, when compared with 2005 levels. It sets different goals for each state, and some that rely heavily on coal won't have to make as many reductions. Minnesota is one of nine states told to reduce their 2012 levels by more than 40 percent, to help meet the nation's overall reduction goal. Officials with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, utilities...

By John Fund Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.”It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.”Democratic rhetoric is...

    Over the weekend, I spent a lot of time reading about the Bundy Ranch Saga, looking into the area in Nevada where the Bundys live, and asking Google a bunch of questions I wanted answers to. While researching, I happened upon a press release from an environmental group, and decided to call the person listed as the "contact" person. The leftist environmentalist and I had about a 45 minute conversation over the phone about the Bundy Ranch, Nevada, and the history of what has been happening there, from his perspective. It was a long time to be on the phone,...
