  • Jimmy Carter resigns from Elders

    05/27/2016 2:10:08 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 25 replies
    Former President Jimmy Carter is resigning from his prominent role in the Elders, the international NGO announced Wednesday. The 91-year-old, who had played a large part of the group since its founding in 2007, announced in March that he no longer needed treatment for cancer, less than seven months after publicly revealing that doctors had found melanoma that had spread to his brain. Story Continued Below “From the Middle East to climate change, women’s rights to superpower diplomacy, Jimmy has brought the gravitas of his Presidential office but also the passion of an activist who believes the world can, and...
  • Rules for Older Shooters: Understand That Things Change During Your Golden Years

    01/30/2016 7:44:05 AM PST · by rktman · 35 replies ^ | 1/29/2016 | Kevin Michalowski
    One of the recurring themes of questions we receive here at the USCCA has to do with older shooters and some of our training tips. Basically, readers and viewers continue to ask questions like the following: "Can you provide any training tips for those of us who can't move the way you do? Some of us are no longer so limber." The short answer is "No." But the longer answer is far more important from a personal safety and legal standpoint. So let’s get to the short answer first.
  • 14,000 draft notices sent to men born in 1800s

    Washington Post ^ | 07/11/2014
    No, the United States isn’t trying to build a military force of centenarians. It just seems that way after the Selective Service System mistakenly sent notices to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born between 1893 and 1897, ordering them to register for the nation’s military draft and warning that failure to do so is “punishable by a fine and imprisonment.” The agency realized the error when it began receiving calls from bewildered relatives last week. Chuck Huey, 73, of Kingston, said he got a notice addressed to his late grandfather Bert Huey, a World War I veteran who was born...

    @mrubin1971Two news stories from recent weeks, if true, should raise a red flag in the United States that Iran is preparing to use Hezbollah to strike at U.S. interests in Latin America, if not in the United States itself.First, this story from the Lebanese news portal Naharnet and sourced in part to Israeli radio. The Naharnet story was taken down shortly after it appeared: Hezbollah is using a training base established by Iran in northern Nicaragua near the border with Honduras, the Israeli radio reported on Thursday [September 6]. “The area is cordoned off and there are around 30 members...

    Today the President handed out the Presidential Medal of Freedom to not one, but two Antisemites. There was has been a lot of written about one of of the recipients, former Irish President Mary Robinson, who was responsible for the 1991 UN Conference on Racism, which turned out to be a conference for every type of Antisemitism in the world. But the former UN hate monger wasn't the only Antisemite receiving a Presidential award today, the other one honored by the President was Bishop Desmond Tutu For example Tutu has made some very disturbing statements about the Holocaust. He has...

    Bicycles instead of cars? Dense apartment clusters instead of single homes? Community rituals instead of churches? "Human rights" instead of religious freedom? The UN Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) which met June 3-14 [1996]in Istanbul, painted an alarming picture of the 21st century community. The American ways-free speech, individualism, travel, and Christianity-are out. A new set of economic, environmental, and social guidelines are in. Citizenship, democracy, and education have been redefined. Handpicked civil leaders will implement UN "laws", bypassing state and national representatives to work directly with the UN. And politically correct "tolerance"-meaning "the rejection of dogmatism and absolutism"...

    Former President Jimmy Carter and former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari were hoping to visit the State Department this week to brief officials on their recent trip to North Korea, but nobody at the State Department was available to meet with them. Carter and Ahtisaari, both Nobel Peace Prize laureates, had been eager to give their readout of their meetings in North Korea April 26 and 27 to U.S. officials and press their case for a resumption of food aid to the Hermit Kingdom. The two are members of the Elders, a group of senior figures who have been informally engaging...

    And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.(Revelation 4:2-5)After hearing the heavenly voice commanding him to “Come up here”, the apostle John has been translated...

    Ignore, for the moment, the ludicrous claim that giving 30 million Americans health insurance actually lowers the cost of health care. What happened to freedom, to the opposition to an intrusive federal government? Ask a liberal what he most dislikes about the "right"? "I resent the attempt to tell me how to live my life," he'll say. He'll mention abortion and say that the decision belongs to a woman and her doctor. He'll mention same-sex marriage and say that government should not prevent two people of the same sex from marrying, especially if one objects based upon religious grounds. He'll...

    I got this by email: Support grows for Dr. George Lundberg as Surgeon General. Many people believe that George D. Lundberg, M.D, Ph.D., is ideally qualified to be Surgeon General. Lundberg, an expert on medical ethics and the need for healthcare reform, edited the Journal of the American Medical Association for 17 years and the Medscape Journal of Medicine for 10 years. Coincident with his leaving the latter, the latter journal announced that it has stopped publishing new articles but will maintain free access to its archive. [Romain M and others.

    Fourteen years after Dr. Joycelyn Elders was fired for supporting teaching about masturbation as a way to slow the spread of AIDS, the former U.S. surgeon general is still sharing her own fiery brand of straight talk, this time by likening the lack of comprehensive sex education in the United States to child abuse. "If you don't educate young people and then they end up pregnant or with HIV ... if we don't provide health education for our young people it really is akin to child abuse," she said. "We're a sexually unhealthy society," Elders said to a crowd of...
