    President Obama signed an executive order today extending eligibility for the third-highest Defense Department recognition to foreign armies. “Executive Order 12019 of November 3, 1977 (Establishing the Defense Meritorious Service Medal), is amended by inserting, ‘or to any member of the armed forces of a friendly foreign nation,’ after ‘any member of the Armed Forces of the United States,’” said the short order. …

    This past week Bureau of Land Management Troops were called upon to seize cattle owned by Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy. The livestock confiscation was thwarted when hundreds of supporters rallied to Bundy’s side. While it seems likely that the BLM had sufficient firepower to prevail, the confrontation dissipated when it was realized that there would be substantial casualties on both sides. That the BLM chose to stand down enraged Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev) who characterized it as “an abject surrender to domestic terrorists.” “The so-called ‘cooler heads’ suggesting that there are more pacific ways of resolving the issues surrounding this...

    “But Deliver Us from Evil” (The Lord’s Prayer; Luke 23:32-49)“But Deliver Us from Evil”: The seventh and final petition of the Lord’s Prayer. And how appropriate that we should come to this petition on this particular day, Good Friday. For the greatest evil that has ever been perpetrated on this earth is the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. I mean, really, Good Friday could just as well be called “Evil Friday,” that is the magnitude of the evil committed against this wholly innocent man, the most innocent man who has ever lived--indeed, the only truly innocent man to have ever...

    All my life, I've heard that liberals are against authority and that they love nothing more than sticking it to the man. Such talk is usually accompanied by how the hippies changed the world by smoking pot and protesting the Vietnam war and other such nonsense. The reality, though, is far different from the narrative that they continually push through their control of popular culture and education. The liberal went from hating the man to becoming the man. They worship at the shrine of big government, and they relish in the displays of overt power that they once condemned. Thus...

While the Evans clan was most certainly poor, the fictional family lived up to the show's title in that what they lacked in material possessions, they more than made up for this in the love that was ever present in nearly every episode.

    On Wednesday, April 16, two members of the Boston City Council introduced an ordinance to require that health insurance for city employees cover "transgender" sex-change procedures, including hormone treatments and "gender reassignment" surgery. This is the latest demand of the homosexual / transgender movement in many cities across the country. It was introduced by City Councilors Michelle Wu and Ayanna Pressley, two of the most liberal on an already left-wing Boston City Council. They worked closely with local homosexual activists, according to press reports. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, an aggressive pro-homosexual advocate, told the press that he is "wholeheartedly in...

    A school in Lincoln, Nebraska is wiping some major egg off its face after a horrible bullying advice flyer was sent home with kids. Zeman Elementary School fifth-graders were recently sent home with a flyer to help teach them how to act if they're being bullied. It's worse than you can possibly ever imagine. Here's just a few of the highlights: Rule #7: Do not tell on bullies. The number one reason bullies hate their victims, is because the victims tell on them. Telling makes the bully want to retaliate.

And make no mistake, Nevada BLM personnel also escaped the possibility of thousands descending upon their offices, only because cooler heads prevailed. The video which follows shows just how close this fraudulent tale of the habitat of “desert tortoises” came to being a disaster.

    On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including...

    Once upon a time there were more than fifty cattle ranches operating in the area of Southern Nevada where Cliven Bundy, with the help of numerous armed patriots from all over, is making his stand against the abusive, bankrupting tactics of the bullying federal government. Now, there is only one rancher and his family left. After several generations of his ancestors’ having use of the land in question, Bundy is literally the “last man standing” in what is, evidently, a long-range vendetta against ranchers by land-grabbing federal bureaucrats who, also literally, have gone power mad–that is, mad for solar power...

In particular, on this night Jesus instructs his disciples to pray for strength in the face of temptation. “Pray that you may not enter into temptation,” Jesus tells them...
  • Is Cattlemen Armed Insurrection the New Form of American Protest? (Amazing!)

    04/17/2014 10:07:33 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 53 replies
    The cattle-ranch protest in Nevada was an armed insurrection by the Tea Party. One thousand Tea Party, so-called “patriots,” came to Bunkerville, NV, brandished weapons and the government backed down. Other mass protests in America have either ended in arrests or violent clashes between authorities and protesters. There is an obvious double standard here because the government relented and turned away. Why did the government do this? The main difference between many other mass protests and the cattle-ranch protest is that the cattle-ranch protesters were armed with handguns and assault rifles. Is American in such a state where the new...

Yes. We need much stronger laws. Yes, but only a few common-sense changes. No. The laws are OK the way they are. No. We have too many laws, and most of them should be eliminated. What is interesting about this poll is the last choice.   It is almost never given on these old...

Deranged, hyper-manic left wing comedian Lewis Black made a complete fool of himself Monday when he gave a speech at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., delivering a slobbering, convulsive tirade in his usual style, that of a bombastic barroom boor who pontificates wildly in a blind rage on matters of which he knows next to nothing. Black claims that he is one of only a handful of true socialists still alive in American...

    First published on FrontPage Magazine. By Enza Ferreri In British law, race and religion are increasingly becoming deliberately confused for the purpose of accusing critics of Islam of racism. A soccer fan was arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred after allegedly ripping up pages of the Quran and throwing them at a match. While on bail, he was also banned from attending any football games, visiting St Andrew's - the stadium of the incident -, and going to any city where his team Middlesbrough was playing. Insults against Islam are taken very seriously in Britain, and the world...

    I can't send my kids to public school.  This is a national shame. Both I and my wife are the products of public school.  I still remember a few of my high school teachers who encouraged me, and taught me more about life than just the curriculum in the classroom.  My kids won't be going to public school though. It's not about the teachers.  Most teachers work hard, care deeply about their students, and do their best to educate our kids.  By educate, I mean not just teach the material, but help our kids understand what learning is, and help...

    EL PASO, TX (KTSM) — Many parents are scratching their heads over a 4th grade homework assignment handed out on Tuesday but not because they can't understand it. Parents of a group of students at Pasodale Elementary School are angry with a teacher for sending their children home with what they call an "inappropriate reading assignment." One parent says it was supposed to be an assignment done in class but when some of the kids didn't finish it in time, they took it home, and that's when their parents said they noticed something wasn't right. Ursula Silverstein said her 10...

    Data provided by the FBI The United States has one of the highest per capita numbers of firearms in the world.   It is estimated that there is about one gun for each man, woman and child in the United States, about 310 million firearms.   Every year, some of those firearms are stolen, breaking any official chain of ownership.   In any given year, the percentage of firearms reported stolen is fairly small.  In 2013, 191 thousand firearms were reported stolen to the NCIC.  That is about .06 percent of the total firearms in private hands.  Not six percent, but six...

    Front Sight's Ignatius Piazza has put together a video that I believe does a good job of sorting some of the fact from fiction behind the heavy handed federal actions against the Bundys. It calls for legitimate law enforcement personnel to do the right thing, and look into the active ongoing coverup. (First identified here on Free Republic, as usual...)
