  • HIJRAH: Why Is Small Town America Being Flooded With Islamic "Refugees"?

    Looks like my old stomping grounds in Montana are heating up. People there are not taking Obama’s plan to force refugees on them lying down. There was a protest in Missoula, Montana at 10 a.m. this morning over that very issue. It is just one of many battles brewing out there in small town America.Small towns in the sparsely populated parts of America are the perfect place to relocate these refugees. Especially if your agenda includes politically terraforming the country. The West is historically conservative in their politics. Many are Republicans and Libertarians. Even the Democrats hearken back to...

    The left is using a successful dirty political trick to get the most unelectable candidate as their opposing nominee. In this case I believe that person to be Donald Trump. They learned this trick from the recent French Le Pen elections where they crossed party lines and voted for Le Pen's opponent. The left may be lying, cheating, diabolical thieves but they are not stupid in the ways of politics and they learn quick. They don't have to worry about ethics and honor like the right does.

    The following video and text don't supply an answer to that question. The author of the text (which is in German) is purportedly a former member of the Islamic State who wants to warn the West that ISIS possesses four nuclear devices, and plans to use them against the United States, Russia, France, and Germany. What he says may well be a hoax, or more specifically, deliberately planted disinformation to achieve particular political ends. I can think of several Great Powers who would find it useful to disseminate the fiction that ISIS is ready to use nuclear weapons. However, it...

Debate about the Constitutionality of the individual right to bear arms was settled when the US Supreme Court in District of Columbia et al. v Heller stated that: The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.” I can’t think of a better description of Ted Cruz’s relationship with the DC-Wall Street Establishment – Cruz being the scoundrel of course. Cruz’s claim of not being a tool of the political elite is like Bill Clinton telling the world, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Webster’s definition of a scoundrel is a dishonest or unscrupulous person, and Cruz...

    Once again, Barack Obama believed that the American People were not paying attention. After all, much of what he spoke about “correcting” at his tear-stained, anti-gun press conference was already law. The women of “The View” were predictably apoplectic about automatic weapons–machine guns–and outraged that they have not been banned. This was before Sen. Rand Paul patted their hands and told them not to fear, that such automatic weapons are available to the public only after obtaining a special license from the ATF. Just another straw man propped up by our Socialist in Chief to cause the American People to...

    From the moon landings being an elaborate hoax, to climate change deniers, there are many conspiracy theories that are believed by a large number of people worldwide. But the amount of people who would have been involved in keeping such large-scale secrets suggests that if they were true, they would have been exposed by someone by now. With this in mind, a physicist has calculated how many people would have potentially worked on some of the most popular theories, and what is the likelihood of them all keeping a secret. Using this model, the truth about the moon landings being...

Federal spending is limited by the enumerated powers delegated to the federal government.

Nothing has changed except the vigor with which Barack Hussein now attacks the 2nd Amendment, using Executive Orders because Democrats refuse to face angry voters by writing and passing unconstitutional legislation. There is nothing so dependably disingenuous as a liberal who proclaims a willingness to have an honest debate or engage in a legitimate compromise. It seems decades spent in the practice of calculated deceit have made...

To the great disappointment of those who'd like to blame all Obama conspiracy theories on the "bitter clingers," claims that "Obama is a Muslim" are perhaps most persistent among a surprising group: Muslims in the Middle East. A 2015 CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll asked Americans if they knew what Obama's religion was. "Is he Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Mormon, Muslim, something else, or not...

But now that Trump holds the lead in national polls, as well as polls in Iowa and New Hampshire, it's time to take his campaign seriously.

    Every once in a while our society surprises me and that's what happened in Baltimore recently. When the first police officer in the Freddie Gray case went to court it ended in a mistrial. That was surprising enough in and of itself. I'm fairly sure that when the city, led by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and prosecutor Marilyn Mosby, decided to put the officers on trial they were fairly sure that any jury they seated would bring back a conviction. That's probably why they fought so hard against moving the case out to an area where they might find a slightly...

The mostly white, middle and upper middle class church members were interested in what they could do as a congregation to ally with and support this important movement. Much of what was presented was in line with the liberal values of those in attendance, but when speaker Marco McWilliams, director of Black Studies at Direct Action for Rights and Equality (DARE)...
  • Is the question of Cruz’s eligibility something we want to trust to the Supreme Court?

    Should we be forced to trust our future to a Supreme Court ruling on Ted Cruz’s eligibility? Should we be made to stand by helplessly while John Roberts is blackmailed into voting against America again? On its face there seems to be no question about Senator Ted Cruz’s eligibility to serve as president. Nevertheless, the matter has not ever been litigated anywhere; so characterizing it as settled law is not accurate and may be fraught with danger. Those who support Senator Cruz want this question to go away. That’s very understandable; but wanting something to go away and seeing it...
  • Did the U.S. Just Pay the "Jizya Tax" to Iran? ~ Vanity

    Caller to a Radio Show brought up a very fascinating point: From an article about Jizya: Ann Lambton states that the jizya was paid in humiliating conditions by every free male dhimmi of age. According to Cohen, the Quran itself does not prescribe humiliating treatment for the dhimmi when paying Jizya, but some later Muslims interpreted it to contain "an equivocal warrant for debasing the dhimmi (non-Muslim) through a degrading method of remission" The Sailors were Humiliated during the whole process of getting them back, and this sent a clear message to all the 57 Islamic States out there...

    A federal judge has rejected a pair of lawsuits in which the government had been asked to take action against the Department of State stemming from Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton's use of a personal email server while in office. Judge James Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia said in a ruling published on Monday that the arguments raised in a pair of since-consolidated suits filed last year by Judicial Watch and the Cause of Action Institute, two conservative groups, "are now moot and will be dismissed for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction." ... "These are...
  • Iowa Caucus Goers Wasting Good Cruz Votes on Santorum/Huck are Doing Conservatism a Serious Disfavor

    just sayin... What's the point of voting for some spoiler polling at 1-3% -both Santorum and the Huckster in the race for dubious reasons anyway, imho. I got to assume such Republican base voters would prefer someone other than Trump be the nominee... and sure can't see what any real conservative wouldn't want to support Cruz as the most credible alternative. Why are people even considering Santorum or Huckabee at this point... nothing special about either of these retreads, really. With Cruz and Trump polling neck-and-neck in Iowa, conservative GOP voters really ought to think about what an extra...
  • Charlie Hebdo cartoon on Alan Kurdi is 'disgusting,' says aunt

    Cartoon suggests drowned refugee boy would have grown up to be a 'groper'The aunt of drowned Syrian refugee boy Alan Kurdi says a controversial new cartoon from French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is "disgusting." "I hope people respect our family's pain. It's a big loss to us. We're not the same anymore after this tragedy. We're trying to forget a little bit and move on with our life. But to hurt us again, it's not fair," said Tima Kurdi from her home in Port Coquitlam, B.C. The cartoon suggests that Alan Kurdi, had he grown up, would have been like...

    The State of the Nation: A Dictatorship Without Tears John W. Whitehead "There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."--Aldous Huxley There's a man who contacts...

    London Telegraph ^ | January 13th, 2016 | reasonmclucus
    The world cringed when the Taliban destroyed ancient Buddhist Statues in Afghanistan. The Taliban destroyed the historic artifacts because Buddhist statues represented something the Taliban considered immoral. They didn’t want people to be reminded that people in the region had at one time been involved in something that was no longer considered morally acceptable. Buddhist statues were not “politically correct” under the Taliban’s view of the Muslim religion. Allowing the statues to stay advertised that Afghans had once behaved in what the Taliban regarded as an immoral fashion. Recent reports claim that ISIS may be doing the same thing to...

    Under the old rules Democrats got to take dirty money and Republicans who brought it up were laughed at. That was then this is now. Here are just a few of Hillary Clinton’s donors that show how arrogant she is and how dirty they are. Clinton took $36,800 from Weitz &Luxenberg the corporate partner to convicted felon and former New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. Silver is on his way to a 120 year federal prison sentence for taking kickbacks from Weitz & Luxenberg’s asbestos scam. The money was obviously funneled to Clinton through Weitz & Luxenberg. This is...

    Juniper Networks announced late Friday it was removing the suspicious Dual_EC_DRBG random number generator from its ScreenOS operating system. And while that’s heralded as a positive move considering Dual_EC’s dubious origins, there remain important and unanswered questions about Juniper’s decision to include what is considered to be a backdoored random number generator in its NetScreen VPNs, and why a number of strange coding and engineering decisions were made that could have facilitated the decryption of secure traffic.

    :: Cruz's Dilemma- By: Larry Walker, II -The concept of natural born Citizenship is clear and concise, to anyone with a rational mind. Although some may wish to contort its meaning to fit the presidential candidate of their choice, natural law is incapable of such bias. It takes two parents to produce a child, one male and one female, but you would never know it if your source of information is the lamestream media. By its logic, only one parent is sufficient.Epigrammatically speaking, if both of your parents were U.S. Citizens at the time of your birth, you are without...

    Opinions on Hillary Clinton's chances in 2016 come in two forms with not much in between: "It ain't happening" and "Hillary's got it locked in." We may soon find out which one of those prognostications is right. Washington insiders are saying that the evidence in the FBI's investigation into Clinton's "unique email arrangement" has reached "critical mass." The American Spectator's R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. joins former prosecutor Joe DiGenova in predicting that a decision to indict is coming soon....
