  • What I Learned at CPAC

    Freeper in Attendance. | 22/28/15 | Self
    So. I flew from Texas as a guest of Ted Cruz' PAC to attend CPAC. I'm in my hotel room in Crystal City getting ready to go back home in the morning. This was my first time to attend CPAC. My observations: 1. Three types of pepole in attendance: college intern type, political operative type, and far fewer: average people. 2. The Paul people were everywhere. Judging by the idiot sitting behind me at the "Big Government Sucks" rally, I'm not impressed. This college kid was trying to explain, very patiently, to his buddy that the problem isn't really big...
  • Why the Globalist Wants Assad of Syria Gone [Vanity]

    02/25/2015 11:31:16 AM PST · by Enlightened1 · 18 replies
    The reason Assad has been vilified is because Qatar wants a natural gas pipeline to run through the Arabian peninsula, through Jordan, through SYRIA, to Turkey. From Turkey, it can connect with existing pipelines to Europe, in order to supply Europe with natural gas. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-05-16/mystery-sponsor-weapons-and-money-syrian-rebels-revealed This proposed pipeline would threaten Russia economically, as Russia currently supplies Europe with natural gas. Syria and Russia are allies. Thus, Assad said "No" to the proposed Qatar-Turkey pipeline that would run through Syria. Next thing you know, there's an "uprising" in Syria, and Assad is public enemy number one. And when it became clear...

I mean, if the BS that they are peddling is in the name of Allah or Mohamad then why must they cover their faces unless they are ashamed or cowards. Allah knows who they are, right. So if what they are doing is "justified" why must they cover their faces, unless they are simply just a bunch of limp wristed pants wetting cowards.

    Turkey, U.S. sign deal to train, equip Islamists against Syria By Julio Severo The United States and Turkey signed, according to Reuters, an agreement on Thursday to train and equip Islamists to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Turkey will provide an equal number of trainers to work alongside their American military counterparts, said an official at the U.S. military’s Central Command. Reuters said that the agreement is “to train and equip Syrian moderates to fight the Islamic State.” Yet, the same Reuters report said, “Turkey hopes the training will also bolster the weakened and divided Syrian opposition in their...

    National Review ^ | 2/5/2015 | Victor Davis Hanson
    The president’s disastrous foreign policy is as much a product of his own vanity as anything else. Members of the Obama administration have insisted that the Taliban are not terrorists. Those responsible for the recent Paris killings are not radical Islamists. The Muslim Brotherhood is largely secular. Jihad is a “legitimate tenet of Islam.” And “violent extremism,” “workplace violence,” or “man-caused disaster” better describe radical Islamic terrorism. Domestic terrorism is just as likely caused by returning U.S. combat veterans, according to one report by a federal agency. What is the point of such linguistic appeasement? The word “appeasement” long ago...

I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he...

They would even be given the option of levels of information of violent criminals. With an instant background check, people with a...

But what about the Ravens game a week earlier? That one WAS close - 35-31. Does anyone really think the Pats weren't pulling their under-inflation tricks then, that it just started last week? Other teams raised the issue back in November, so it's reasonable to assume it's been going on since at least then.

    Obama's release of five more Yemeni terrorists from GITMO yesterday, one week after the terrorist attacks in Paris is beyond words. It wasn't outrageous enough that he didn't appear at the anti-terror march in Paris, he had to follow that up with what can only be described as a show of solidarity with Islamic terrorism since Yemen is where the two Kouachi brothers got their weapons training before their brutal attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine. To say the President of the United States is an Islamic extremist let alone Muslim is unfathomable. But how else can his 'no show' or...
