    Western Rifle Shooters Association ^ | August 20, 2016 | Anonymous
    From over the transom; propositional nation and constitutional folks take heed: A brilliant friend who wishes to remain nameless reminds us why incidents like Charlottesville are all too inevitable in a nation with a hard left high command, an army of portable paid thugs, and a vast population of sentimental liberals who believe they stand only for truth and ‘social justice.' The left could care less about this issue (Confederate statuary), as they could care less about any of their issues. “The issue is never the issue, the issue is always revolution”. This is why they got gay marriage, then...
  • The President Should, But Won’t, Declare Antifa A Terrorist Organization

    DB Daily Update ^ | 8.21.2017 | David Blackmon
    Terrorism comes in many names. “Antifa” is one of them. – An interesting, though little-noticed, related to the fascist hate group “Antifa” (which ironically is a contraction for ‘Anti-Fascist’) story is developing as a part of the White House on-line petitioning process that was created by the Obama Administration. This petition demands that the Trump Administration formally recognize Antifa as a terrorist organization, which it clearly and unambiguously is. “AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States,” the petition reads in...

    Article V Blog ^ | August 21st 2017 | Rodney Dodsworth
    I am regularly taken aback by those who think our freedoms should depend on the character of those we elect to political office. If such men exist, then a simple assembly of these angels would do for a government. Grant a few hundred virtuous intellectuals the legislative, executive, and judicial power and be done with it. Why not? In fact, if such men exist, why not empower just one man with the three broad functions? To rely on the virtue alone of our rulers, Article V opponents guarantee a nation not of law, but of men and tyranny. Those who...

    Janitor's view ^ | 08/20/17 | Reasonmclucus
    This post is a partial summary of the preceding post which contains links for some of the information. The white person's continent is Europe, not American. North America has been a melting pot since the Spanish arrived 500 years ago with African slaves whom they sometimes mated with. The first documented marriage of an African to a North American occurred in Florida in 1525. In British North America the "melting pot" began a century later at Jamestown. The small populations in the early Virginia communities meant that people often had to marry across the black, white and red color lines....
  • No Matter How Disgusting Or Vile, Every American Citizen’s Right To Speak Freely By Our Constitution

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    There is a pervasive idea doing the rounds in the media (and also stated by Mr. Piers Morgan), that the First Amendment Right to Free Speech should not cover Nazis or sentiments related to racism. But limits of ANY kind are a stepping stone to censorship and tyranny. It verges on the ludicrous to suggest that “free speech applies for all, except fascists” is a measured response. When one group of people (or group of ideas) is forbidden from open speech, it sets a very dangerous precedent. If today, we say that speech from “X “ is banned, then all...
  • Trump has 'inside information' on who protested in Charlottesville: Falwell Jr.

    ABC News ^ | August 20, 2017 | Nicki Zink
    Evangelical Christian leader Jerry Falwell Jr. defended President Donald Trump's comment that there were "very fine people on both sides" in the Charlottesville protests, saying the president "had information I didn't have" about who participated in the demonstration against removal of a Confederate statue in the Virginia city. "He has inside information that I don't have," Falwell told ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz on "This Week" Sunday. "I don't know if there were historical purists [at the protests] who were trying to preserve some statues. I don't know." The Liberty University president added of the president, "I...

    Larry Lee Education Matters ^ | August 19, 2017 | Larry Lee
    So the passing of another week has a new performer showing up to participate in the year-long circus unfortunately known as the Alabama State Department of Education. The new act is headlined by Bryan Taylor, legal counsel to Governor Kay Ivey. He burst onto the stage with great fanfare late on August 17 clutching a letter decreeing that the music must stop and the clowns return to their makeup room. As things now stand, the state board of education has a called meeting set for Aug. 23. But lawyer Taylor, the same guy who recently took to social media to...

    The Charlottesville, VA tragedy is another step in Communism's march to destroy America. By reading the 1963 Communist Goals for the Takeover of America, we understand what is happening in our beloved country. "Discredit the American Founding Fathers, present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the common man," along with "Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history," are two of 45 important Communist goals that the Charlottesville protests advanced in major ways as the Democrat Party's leftist march to destroy the USA gains steam. The publisher of the DeLand (FL) COURIER...

    Dear Alt-Left Mainstream Media, Washington Establishment and Deep State Operatives… The American People can see behind the curtain… And you will pay a heavy price for your dishonesty! You’ve managed to create a nice little socialist army of masked abusers to beat people up in your name… And you’ve created a Media Echo Chamber to call them heroes.

    Oh, I get it. Trump wins on North Korea. But the Uniparty Establishment can't have that. They need International crises to work fear into people on a timetable of their chosing, it's not Trump's job to solve anything. So the "Left" wing of the Uniparty hires masked protesters and other crisis actors who need to make the rent to instigate racial violence, hoping the still newbie citizen-politician Trump will over-tweet himself or step in it somehow, in some way that they can trap him. They do. Then the "right" Unipartiers, the BushMittMcCainRyanGOPe and their Never-Trump FrenchMcMuffins close in on POTUS...

    A group of former U.S. Intelligence officers calling themselves the VIPs have authored an extensive report with forensic evidence that the Democratic National Committee was not hacked by the Russians in July 2016.  The report alleges the DNC suffered an insider leak, which was conducted in the Eastern time zone of the United States by someone with physical access to a DNC computer. This report was shared with the respected left-liberal magazine, THE NATION.  Author of that report is a well respected writer,  Patrick Lawrence  His credentials are:  Patrick Lawrence is a longtime columnist, essayist, critic, and lecturer.

    Black and Center Blog ^ | 08/15/2017 | L. M. Walker
    If you’ve ever been out in the streets protesting anything, you’re an extremist. If you’ve ever assembled peaceably to petition anyone, other than the government for redress of grievances, you’re an extremist. If you can’t handle the First Amendment rights of peaceable assembly and freedom of speech, you don't deserve to be called an American.According to the First Amendment, “Congress shall make no law …abridging the freedom of speech, …or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Freedom of speech may be defined as, “the right to express any...

    The Union Leader ^ | August 17, 2017 | Deroy Murdock
    HOW DARE HE? President Donald J. Trump stood before journalists on Tuesday and said the unsayable: “I think there is blame on both sides.” Rather than denounce only the execrable white supremacists and swastika-wielding neo-Nazis who organized Saturday’s hate-o-rama in Charlottesville, Virginia, Trump observed that there was violence coming from the KKK side and from extreme Leftists who opposed them with force — not with tranquility, as did those at a peaceful vigil Wednesday night. The reaction to Trump’s comments was as swift as it was vitriolic: “We can truly say his words have absolutely emboldened white supremacists,” said CNN’s...
  • Tech billionaire Tom Draper wants to split California into three states

    The Washington Examiner ^ | August 18, 2017 | Caitlin Yilek
    Tech billionaire Tom Draper filed a measure Friday to divide California into three states. Draper says the "political representation of California's diverse population and economies has rendered the state nearly ungovernable." "The citizens of the whole state would be better served by three smaller state governments while preserving the historical boundaries of the various counties, cities and towns," he argued in the proposed measure's statement of findings. The billionaire spent more than $5 million in 2014 in a bid to split the state in six, according to the Sacramento Bee. His current measure needs almost 600,000 signatures from valid voters...

    Bogus Times ^ | 8/19/17 | Kim Parkhurst
    ... For the “alt-right” party, the wall-to-wall news casting them in a negative light with Nazis and white supremacists was devastating. The local media ran with the angle that Nazis were going berserk on normal, everyday people with no weapons. This is what the people in Virginia were being shown according to people who live there. The mainstream media wasn’t much better because at the end of the day the true story was not being told. It’s been a week and still many people don’t know the whole truth. If you look at enough video of the day’s events, it...

    UPLAND >> A group that had announced plans to hold a rally in Upland next month in support of President Donald Trump’s national security policies is now looking for a new location to assemble. An ACT for America rally was being planned for Sept. 9 in Upland at the Madonna of the Trail, according to a Facebook post. The location of the rally, which now says “Inland Empire ((somewhere))” was changed Friday after a top Upland official made it clear a permit for the rally would be denied. It is part of “America First” rallies being held nationwide that day....

    The left’s Maoist Cultural Revolution is marching right on schedule in America. After the anarchy and carnage in Charlottesville last week, when white supremacists battled Anti-Fascist punks who are actually fascists themselves, the left has again plunged into a full-fledged fury over Confederate statues and monuments. And, just when you thought the insane banishing of the Dukes of Hazzard on TV Land put this issue to rest, for once and for all, the left is back and back with a psychotic vengeance. This week, an unhinged crowd of Marxists, special snowflakes and general, left-wing losers toppled a Confederate States of...

    We’ve only just now managed to cool down the easily inflamed ego of Kim Jong-un (not that anyone really cares how angry he is this week) after his threat to rain down ICBMs around Guam, possibly tipping it over in the process. The back and forth saber rattling has moved up considerably in temperature ever since we found out he now has some amazingly advanced (and probably Russian) rockets and very likely the ability to miniaturize his nukes to fit on them. What better time than now to schedule some war games with his sworn enemy, South Korea? Of course,...

    The UK Independence Party (UKIP) leadership candidate, John Rees-Evans proposes to reduce “unnecessary population” by paying British Indians to leave the UK using the £12bn funds from the vital foreign aid budget. Under the proposed scheme he wants to remove a million people every year using the foreign aid budget. The scheme would give dual-nationals £9,000 plus healthcare benefits to “return to their country of origin”, reported Daily Mirror. Scheme Will Create Jobs in UK He used examples of Indians and Tanzanians, to claim that his scheme would “create jobs in this country, reduce unnecessary population and reduce the strain...
