  • Obama To Sign Anti-Second Amendment U.N. Gun Grab

    Second Amendment: The United Nations is putting the finishing touches on an Arms Trade Treaty that transcends borders and may even trample our Constitutional right to bear arms. Every indication is that the president will sign it. Like the New Start and Law of the Sea treaties before it, as well as the Kyoto Protocol and Agenda 21, the Arms Trade Treaty being finalized at the U.N. this month is one of those feel-good, can't-we-all-get-along pieces of parchment whose net effect is to accomplish little except to eat away at American sovereignty and freedom. Just as the world's worst human...

    HOUSTON (AP) — The head of the NAACP says the group's fight against conservative-backed voter ID laws that have been passed in several states is akin to the great civil rights battles of the 1960s. Benjamin Todd Jealous, the CEO and president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, told delegates at the group's annual convention on Monday in Houston that these are Selma and Montgomery times.

    Iran has been chosen as a member of the “bureau” overseeing a month-long United Nations conference in New York aimed at finalizing a controversial global “arms trade treaty.” The move, which came as the conference got underway last week but received virtually no attention, is the latest example of Iran taking up leadership positions at the United Nations despite its defiance of Security Council resolutions relating to its nuclear program. Furthermore, according to an expert panel monitoring U.N. sanctions on Iran, Tehran continues to flout a Security Council ban on exporting its weaponry, with Syria the main recipient. “This is...

    George Soros is financing the fight to give the United Nations control of your guns. Through his (Media Matters) Soros is dumping pro-UN gun control propaganda into the mainstream media to coincide with the (United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty) being held in New York July 2–27. In a blog post (published July 3) Timothy Johnson of Media Matters describes the notion that the United Nations would ever try to take away the right of Americans to keep and bear arms “laughable.” Johnson goes on to promote the passage of the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) as a...

    Lisa Madigan swept into the Illinois attorney general's office almost a decade ago as the can't-miss, up-and-coming daughter of the state's most powerful politician. Today her father, House Speaker Michael Madigan, still commands the spotlight. Ms. Madigan, who was supposed to be governor by now, shows no sign of upstaging him. By all accounts, she was deeply involved in the signature issue involving state attorneys general ...

    I came of age when the word “drive-by” entered the American lexicon. By high school graduation, I lost one cousin to gun violence and another was incarcerated for a gun crime. I know many harmed by guns and even more who feared the possibility. I always wonder if, but for the Second Amendment, there would be a more radical commitment to compromise and peacefully working through easy and difficult issues. In writing the Second Amendment, the Framers didn't envision the kind of gun toting that is permitted across this country today.... I am not naïve enough to believe that doing...

    We can take it for granted that Tom Cruise – whose divorce proceedings are already such a catastrophe for Scientology – will never talk in public about Xenu. The existence of this intergalactic emperor, who flourished c 75,000,000 BC, was top secret until the Church’s enemies took to the internet. Advice to journalists: if you ask Cruise about Xenu, the doors of Hollywood (where the Church wields immense influence) will slam in your face. On the other hand, it’s safe to ask any Scientologist about Kolob. This is the star, or possibly planet, that is closest to the throne of...

    While the individual mandate tax gets most of the attention, the ObamaCare law actually contains 20 new or higher taxes on the American people. These taxes are gradually phased in over the years 2010 (with its 10 percent “tanning tax”) to 2018 (when the tax on comprehensive health insurance plans kicks in.) Six months from now, in January 2013, five major ObamaCare taxes will come into force: 1. The ObamaCare Medical Device Manufacturing Tax (snip) 2. The ObamaCare High Medical Bills Tax (snip) 3. The ObamaCare Flexible Spending Account Cap (snip) 4. The ObamaCare Surtax on Investment Income (snip) 5....

    The law enforcement, medical, judicial and penal systems in the State of Pennsylvania need to be criminally indicted for conspiring and condoning egregious sub-human physical torture; denial of acceptable and reasonable medical treatment after arrest; denial of acceptable and reasonable medical treatment after imprisonment; denial of competent and reasonable legal defense; denial of exculpable evidence withheld by State Police during trial: and last but not the least the present day false imprisonment of a law abiding citizen who by happenstance was in the wrong place at the wrong time - beaten nearly to death three times thereafter.

    The United Nations on Thursday called for a tax on billionaires to help raise more than $400 billion a year for poor countries. An annual lump sum payment by the super-rich is one of a host of measures including a tax on carbon dioxide emissions, currency exchanges or financial transactions proposed in a UN report that accuses wealthy nations of breaking promises to step up aid for the less fortunate. The annual World Economic and Social Survey says it is critical to find new ways to help the world's poor as pledged cash fails to flow. The report estimates that...

    There is ample evidence that Barack Obama, and people under his supervision, committed at least one felony -- specifically, illegal gambling across state lines -- to fund his 2008 election campaign. Congress, meanwhile, found Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder, in contempt for refusal to testify about Operation Fast and Furious. Orchestration of straw purchases of firearms, one of which resulted in the death of a law enforcement officer, could easily be another felony.

The 46-year-old Pulitzer Prize winning writer carries only four clubs in his bag while facing extraordinary hazards that took years to form. He strokes his way through grassy fields, abandoned houses and crumbling landmarks. The half-way houses on this course are real.

  • Savannah Guthrie proves that Obama was born in Huwaii? Or did she mean Huwai, Indonesia?

    A YouTube user by the name of Bigone5555J made an observation that needs some attention. His video covers the discovery that Obama was born in Huwaii according to Savannah Guthrie. Savannah Guthrie is the reporter that was allowed to be the only member of the press to feel and photograph the real Certificate of Live Birth (according to her). Why she was appointed as the only individual allowed access is certainly curious, but even more suspect is the two low resolution photographs issued of Obama’s long form Certificate of Live Birth touted as the authentic paper document copy with seal...

    One in seven Americans are on food stamps, but the government is pushing to enroll more — in many instances working to overcome Americans’ “pride,” self-reliance or failure to see a need. “Our common goal is to increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program,” the United States Department of Agriculture explains on its “Outreach Toolkits” page. “Our purpose is to ensure that those going through difficult times can feed their families healthy, nutritious food. By working as a team, we can accomplish these goals.” The USDA has adopted a range of strategies and programs designed to bring more people...

    Former Lt. Col. Terry Lakin knows what despair feels like. He felt it full-bore on a late December day in 2010. Having been stripped of his rank, income, benefits, pension, and authority at court martial, this much-honored 17-year U.S. Army veteran was about to lose his freedom. The good doctor had refused deployment to Afghanistan. He had been there before in his role as flight surgeon and would have been happy to go again. He had his bags packed and was ready to leave. All he asked from his commander-in-chief before boarding the plane was a sign, a nod to...
