    Nothing speaks more to the blatant ignorance of liberalism than to hear radical leftists belittle our country and military on a national day of mourning and remembrance. Believe it or not, most conservatives despise war – view its necessity as an absolute last resort – for we too have fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters. By that same token, right-minded Americans simply refuse to bury their heads in the sand and pretend evil does not exist in order to magically appease our innate desire for global harmony. Whether a Christian is beheaded in Syria or your neighbor...

    I have the good fortune to live near DC and Arlington cemetery on this Memorial Day. The morning was hot, and Dear Leader's presence blocked some of Arlington Cemetery. I told one of the Army sentries that I underestimated this SOB as he could screw up Memorial Day at Arlington National Cemetery. I had the goal to find the graves of three men who were killed in action this Memorial Day. This first was a man who is familiar to anyone who watched "The Pacific".

    TO MAKE STUDENTS OF SOCIALISMDublin, N.H., July 14, 1905. To the Editor of Harper's WeeklySir, - I observe in a recent number of your valuable journal an expression of surprise that my name should be united with others in the formation of an "Intercollegiate Socialist School" which "aims to imbue the minds of the rising generation with socialistic doctrines." This last phrase is your own, for I at least am connected with no organization for the purpose you here state. As to the names with which mine is united I am not concerned; as Theodore Parker used to say "I...

USA Today posted this report, On April 6, Lance Cpl. Deshon Otey, 24, of Hardin, Ky., was the sole survivor of an attack on his Humvee that killed seven of his comrades in Echo Company. His only wounds were nightmares, Otey said later. "I always see these guys with turbans. They come up and just start slaughtering all of us," he said. A...
  • State Nullification: What Is It?

    05/23/2015 3:15:50 PM PDT · by concernedcitizen76 · 18 replies
    State nullification is the idea that the states can and must refuse to enforce unconstitutional federal laws. Says Who? Says Thomas Jefferson, among other distinguished Americans. His draft of the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798 first introduced the word “nullification” into American political life, and follow-up resolutions in 1799 employed Jefferson’s formulation that “nullification…is the rightful remedy” when the federal government reaches beyond its constitutional powers. In the Virginia Resolutions of 1798, James Madison said the states were “duty bound to resist” when the federal government violated the Constitution. But Jefferson didn’t invent the idea. Federalist supporters of the Constitution...

There are those who believe this law, which was passed in the wake of the September 11 attacks, should be renewed with no changes. Since the last time it was authorized, Americans have learned that certain provisions of this Act were being interpreted by the National Security Agency to give this agency authority to collect bulk metadata on the phone calls of every...

    While one GOP presidential candidate filibustered legislation extending the National Security Agency’s (NSA) authority to spy on Americans, another alleges that “there’s not a shred of evidence that this surveillance has violated anyone’s civil liberties.” GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ken) spoke for 10 hours on the floor of the Senate contending that NSA’s warrantless violations of privacy are unconstitutional. “The Fourth Amendment was intended to protect us from unreasonable searches,” Rand argued. “It calls for government to obtain a warrant from a judge based on ‘probable cause.’ The gathering of massive amounts of private information without such warrants...

    Far too many people are indifferent to the meaning of Memorial Day, thinking of it as just a long weekend or official start of summer. There are cook-outs and family get-togethers but the only mention of the Memorial Day weekend is in store ads. Brass bands and ceremonies are performing to dwindling crowds. Americans have forgotten the sacrifices of those who perished to preserve their security, peace and freedom.

"Sure, we knew within hours of the Ambassador's death that the attack had been planned at least 10 days in advance, but for us to have publicly acknowledged this would have put the country into even greater danger," Clinton maintained.

    This month, Air Force, the Royal Australian Air Force News magazine, celebrates the daring role of Operation Jericho by its valiant air force personnel during WWII. Mosquito aircrafts were dispatched despite bad weather in order to breach walls of a Nazi prison allowing French resistance to escape. Compromised British Intelligence officers were amongst the prisoners urging accordingly. On their return home, several pilots were shot down by the Luftwaffe, while many of those escaping were killed. These are the histories of bravery clashing with ideologies the like of Hitler. Nowadays “liberation theologies” competing for recognition against historical record for political...

There have been so many that things tend to get confusing. However, one constant through it all has been a warning that, if the Assad regime uses chemical weapons, it would trigger a US military response. Now we have widespread reports of the Assad regime deploying weaponized chlorine gas. So, if you’re a President who’s absolutely terrified of backing up his own proclamations with actual action, what are you to do?...

    Seventy-five years ago today, the House of Commons in London timidly welcomed the newly appointed Prime Minister of the British Empire, Winston Spencer Churchill. The outgoing Prime Minister,Neville Chamberlain, received ovations as they walked together down the long aisle, while the new leader endured a somewhat cool reception. The two men were adversaries. Chamberlain had declared upon returning from signing the Munich Accords in September, 1938, “Peace with honor. I believe it is peace for our time.” Churchill’s response had been, “You were given the choice between peace and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war.” The Accords...

    Post-Cold War honeymoon is long over. It was a geopolitical honeymoon that the West should have never taken in the first place After the Cold War ended, much promise was held out that the world would rapidly democratize—particularly states with notoriously poor human rights records such as China, Russia, Iran, and Cuba. Alas, these were utopian dreams. We were told that transferring large amounts of wealth and technology to authoritarian regimes would make them richer and free—only the former took place. We educated their leaders, often at our taxpayers’ expense, with the promise that these Western educated leaders would usher...

  • ACLU Calls Surveillance of Baltimore Riots an “Invasion of Privacy” [semi-satire]

    The American Civil Liberties Union demanded an end to the use of government drone aircraft to “spy” on those looting and burning buildings in Baltimore. “Persons walking the streets should not be faced with such an intrusive violation of their privacy,” declared ACLU spokesman Bertram Petty. “Officials need to present a ‘probable cause’ case to observe a specific individual suspected of a specific crime. They have no authority for a general surveillance of an entire city.” Petty also questioned whether the looting and burning would even qualify as crimes, per se. “The title to the property being removed from the...
  • Eleanor Roosevelt had her “Hick” and Hillary Clinton has her “Eldie”

    The mounting evidence that Hilary Clinton is bi-sexual will, of course, be ignored by the media who sees its first job as getting Democrats elected not telling the truth about anything. They have done this before. During Franklin Roosevelt’s Administration his wife Eleanor carried on a very active extra marital sex life. The first glimpse of this was right before eyes of a decidedly disinterested press corps. They did their job and lied by omission to cover for their Democrat king’s queen. Eleanor Roosevelt had a flaming physical relationship with a 5’8” 200 pound cigar chopping “butch” named Lorena Hickok...

    Sunday, May 10, 2015 It Takes a Good Guy with a Gun to Defend Freedom of Speech Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog When two terrorists in body armor and carrying assault rifles came for a roomful of cartoonists and fans of freedom of speech in Texas, the media took the side of the terrorists. CAIR, a Muslim Brotherhood front group with ties to terrorists, spun the attack by claiming that the contest had been intended to “bait” the terrorists. The media quickly picked up the “bait” meme. The New York Times, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the...

    Thursday, May 07, 2015 The Fire Burns Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog The circle of men whirls around the fire, hand in hand, hand catching hand, drawing in newcomers into the ring that races around and around in the growing darkness. A melody thumps through the speakers teetering unevenly with the bass, the sound is both old and new, a mix of the past and the present, like the participants in the dance, the traditional garments mixing with jeans and t-shirts until it is all a blur. It is Lag BaOmer, an obscure holiday to most,...

    America, this country of many different parts and different blended cultures is in trouble. A good part of our citizens and insular, shut off from a country of which they have no thoughts of exceptionalism, and unique in history. Having an older, more mature outlook on my country, I have seen changes in our culture, our education, even in areas considered in my youth to be resistant to change. There are many in past generations that have no worth of a society that has stood the test of time since our founders. These are the areas where I have seen...

    North America's answer to The Principality of Sealand -the self-declared micronation of Molossia (a few acres near Reno + colony in California)-  is proud to announce the opening of a glistening new visitor's center for international tourists... Surrounded on all sides by US/Nevada territory, landlocked Molossia was founded and has been run (with an iron fist!) by one Kevin Baugh since 1999.  A 2012 petition on WhiteHouse.gov meant to produce US recognition of Molossia's sovereignty failed to gain the required number of signatures, yet His Excellency continues to make improvements, 'serve the people' (27 members of the Baugh family), and expand territory. Baugh's...

    Apparently only communists were invited After 17 years as a personal bodyguard of Fidel Castro, Juan Rienaldo Sanchez recently claimed in a new book that the Cuban dictator was a major trafficker of illegal drugs into the US for years- and profited handsomely from it. Sound plenty believable to me, North Korea exports meth for hard currency- and El Jefe was close with Columbia's coke-producing communist rebels/terrorists FARC. Other interesting revelations would be that Fidel kept his immediate family a secret -had more kids out of wedlock- and was kind of a lazy slob that 'always slept until 10 or...

    In my proverbial day, long after the Industrial Revolution but before Kim Kardashian bottomed out the Bell Curve, kids were not coddled nor were they allowed to act like disrespectful, uncouth derelicts in our nation's classrooms. If students gave teachers attitude or let alone cursed – that vulgarity which is commonly tolerated today – they were immediately sent to the office and admonished without refrain. If you refused to leave, or God forbid continued to be a disruptive force, someone would drag you out by your ear and kick your “suspended” ass to the curb; no second thoughts, no regrets,...
