  • We Face Terrorist Threats – Don’t Even Think About Enacting Gun Control Laws

    The Daily Caller ^ | 11/18/2015 | Ron Danielowski
    Despite France's draconian gun laws, terrorists have once again proven that only good people obey bad laws, and they do so to their own detriment. It is important to realize that the best security practices, people, and technology governments have to offer could not thwart the ISIS attacks in Paris. Nor will these practices, institutions, and technologies thwart the next attack. [..] Thankfully, the reality of these attacks is that they can be deterred, disrupted, and even defeated by properly trained and well-armed civilian populous. A handful of properly trained civilians carrying concealed weapons in the Bataclan Theatre could have...

    Wow- More insanity from the American left. On Friday eight ISIS linked terrorists slaughtered 132 people in Paris. At least one of the Islamists posed as a refugee to enter Europe - in October. The Islamic terrorists gutted their victims on the floor of the Bataclan concert hall. Democrat Rep. Jan Schakowsky from Illinois told SiriuxXM radio that the Paris terrorist attacks last week were a "chilling reminder" that the U.S. needs more restrictive gun laws. France has some of the strictest gun laws in the West. Only terrorists and criminals are packing heat. Via News Alert:

    Saturday nights are for parties, friends, and trips to the movies. Politics? Hardly. Yet, the Democratic National Committee decided to schedule the second Democratic presidential debate for tonight in Iowa. Because of the stunning tragedy in Paris, the debate discussion has been modified to focus largely on foreign policy and national security. The RNC, unsurprisingly, believes the Democrats' decision to host a debate on the weekend is an obvious attempt to shield Hillary Clinton from any kind of challenge on her path to the primary. Here's Communications Director Sean Spicer's take on it: If a tree falls in the middle...

    (Reuters) - The U.S. postal workers union's executive board said on Thursday it had voted to endorse Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, the union said in a statement. The endorsement was a setback for Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, who has been vying with Sanders, her chief rival, for the support of organized labor."Politics as usual has not worked. It's time for a political revolution," said Mark Dimondstein, president of the postal workers union. Dimondstein called Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, "a true champion" of workers.

    At the University of Missouri, student activists succeeded this week in forcing the resignation of President Timothy M. Wolfe, charging that he has not done enough to address persistent racism on campus. Tim Tai, a University of Missouri student, got a freelance assignment from ESPN to photograph the reaction of victorious activists at the tent city they set up in a public area of campus. As a matter of law, he had an indisputable First Amendment right to photograph events transpiring outdoors on public property. But student activists did not want their tent city or the people in it photographed,...

    A Hennepin County judge on Tuesday dismissed charges against organizers of the massive Black Lives Matter protest at the Mall of America in Bloomington last Christmas season. The leaders of the protest, which drew more than 2,000 people to the mall on Dec. 20, had faced misdemeanor charges of aiding and abetting trespass, aiding and abetting unlawful assembly, and aiding and abetting disorderly conduct. In a 137-page decision, Chief Judge Peter Cahill dismissed all charges against the 11 organizers, while keeping in place trespass charges against 17 individual protesters.

    Whatever happened to welcoming the 'huddled masses,' Hillary? Hillary Clinton is a pro-amnesty candidate who has promised to do everything possible to help bring illegals “out of the shadows” and let them stay in the country. Her surrogates have had a field day deriding anyone who disagrees as a hate-fueled racist who spends his days living in terror of “brown people.” This is particularly true of Donald Trump, who’s been labeled a disgusting monster for suggesting that maybe the millions of illegals pouring across our southern border aren’t the wonderful, God-fearing, people the left would have you believe they are....

  • Why all the Confiscation talk from the Democratic National Socialist Party?

    11/04/2015 12:30:09 PM PST · by Torcert · 65 replies
    In days of yore the Lie was 'No one is talking about Confiscation', but something has changed as of late. Such talk is now common amongst the national Socialist elite despite the lack of a shooting being prevalent in the media. It is axiomatic that one does not call for confiscation until its foundational steps are in place: Intergalactic Background Checks and Registration. The reason should be clear to everyone, people need to be fooled into registering their firearms with the solemn promise that it won't lead to confiscation. This was the case in the UK for example, were the...

    It's no secret that many U.S. environmental groups have become more strident and ideological during the Obama residency. But you may be surprised just how extreme they have become. In early October, a national network of environmental groups - called Stop the Frack Attack (STFA) - held a summit in Colorado to discuss their campaign strategies. The STFA alliance is led by Earthworks and includes other well-known national activist groups, such as the Sierra Club, Natural Resources Defense Council and Food & Water Watch.

Even though after seven years, Obama has done nothing to improve the lives of black Americans, his most loyal, boot-licking constituents. In contrast, Obama helped give homosexuals gay marriage and illegal aliens,amnesty.

    After tape rolled of Black Lives Matter demonstrators repeatedly chanting "pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon," you might have thought a BLM leader would either apologize, or at least seek to miminize the incident as the excesses of an irresponsible and unrepresenative few. But no. On today's Melissa Harris-Perry show, after just such video was played, BLM leader Monica Dennis issued not one word of apology. To the contrary, Dennis said "there is no need to apologize" for what the BLM movement is "putting forth," and touted the group's intention "to resist" the police. The segment began with...

    The New York City Council took the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ethel Rosenburg to honor her and her husband Julius for demonstrating great bravery. The Rosenburgs were executed for treason in 1953 after they were convicted of passing atom bomb secrets to the Soviet Union. Councilman Daniel Dromm (D-Queens) averred that it took a lot of courage for the Rosenburgs to buck the anti-communist hysteria that was sweeping the nation during the post war period. From a parochial perspective, sharing the atom bomb appears traitorous. But from a more ecumenical standpoint it can be seen...

The Vatican announced that the pope had not been informed in advance about the gift. And some commentators said that photos of the pope and Morales show that the pope was actually offended. That was a false probably wishful interpretation. The pope himself later announced that he was keeping the hammer-and-sickle crucifix and taking it home, saying, I understand this work.

The task of even attempting to quantify and catalog all of these interlocking lies is a daunting task. But in order to understand the enemy we face this is a task we all must endeavor to undertake.

    SEATTLE - A Confederate monument in Capitol Hill's Lake View Cemetery is in the spotlight as a local group calls for its removal. For more than a century, Lake View Cemetery has been the final resting place for many of Seattle's pioneers. Only a short walk from one of the cemetery's most visited grave sites - that of Bruce Lee - a 14-foot granite monument memorializes Washington state's Confederate veterans and their families. "Just because it's a military memorial doesn't justify it," Charlette LaFevere says. "It's offensive." LeFevere is part of a small group calling on Seattle City leaders to...

    When leftist Bolivian president Evo Morales on Thursday presented Pope Francis with a communist crucifix a carving of Christ crucified on the hammer of a hammer and sickle the Pope's only reaction was to say, This is not ok, while shaking his head. Shortly after his July 8 arrival at the Bolivian administrative capital of La Paz, Pope Francis made a courtesy visit to Morales at the Palace of Government. At such meetings, the leaders customarily exchange gifts; Pope Francis gave the Bolivian president a mosaic of the Marian icon of the Salus Populus Romani, her role as...

    The black scholar who previously revealed Obamas personal relationship with Communist Party operative Frank Marshall Davis is now speaking in detail on the record. Professor Gerald Horne says that while the relationship is noteworthy and should have been uncovered by the press, there is no evidence that Davis turned Obama into some sort of Manchurian candidate. However, Professor Paul Kengors book about Davis, The Communist, argues that Davis had a significant influence on the formation of Obamas Marxist views and policies as President. Horne, who holds the John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African American Studies at...

    A married Army general on Tuesday introduced his spouse at a Pentagon event that featured lots of top brass, including Defense Secretary Ashton Carter as the keynote speaker. What made this seemingly routine introduction noteworthy is that Brig. Gen. Randy S. Taylor introduced his husband, Lucas. My husband Lucas is sitting up front here, Gen. Taylor said of the man in the same row as Mr. Carter, Army Secretary John McHugh and other senior officials. He said Lucas has subjugated his own career to support the generals frequent moves over an 18-year relationship.

    No Democrats are willing to go on the record with their doubts about Hillary Clinton’s electability – not even the gaggle of hopeless, sad-sack nominal opponents for the nomination: Lincoln “metric system” Chafee, Bernie “socialism now!” Sanders, and Martin “the guy who taxed rain” O’Malley.  But a shocking potential rival is waiting in the wings. The realization is dawning on many in the jackass party that they have an unappealing, gaffe-prone, self-entitled, scandal-ridden presumptive nominee on their hands.  I called out the growing  subterranean panic three weeks ago.  Now with CNN polling revealing movement away from Hillary, the conservative...
