    Clinical psychologists and political propagandists know very well that, how a person perceives reality - how a person perceives the world around him - becomes the world a person lives in. No one knows this better than members of the antigun movement and those that support its efforts, including antigun legislators and billionaire globalists, all of whom see, in America's Second Amendment, something incompatible with the new pan-Western ethos. They unabashedly seek not only to repeal the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, but to debase it, to demolish it, to obliterate it.

    This past June, pulp novelist Brad Meltzer revealed that while he was touring Secret Service headquarters for research on a White House thriller, agents shared with him what Meltzer called a "secret." President Ronald Reagan packed heat. "It's true," they said. "A .38. Reagan used to hide it in his briefcase and take it on Air Force One." Not a secret, actually. Edmund Morris said the same thing in Dutch. And Ronald Kessler's In the President's Secret Service reported that "Reagan confided to one agent that on his first presidential trip to the Soviet Union in May 1988, he had...

    Maybe you've heard or read somewhere that all kinds of terrible disasters will happen if the (global mean surface) temperature rises just 2⁰C above the pre-industrial level; according to some datasets, we are already more than halfway there. Further, activists want to lower the threshold to 1.5⁰C -- thus advancing the date of the "apocalypse." Note, however, that these same activists never bother to define "mean temperature" or tell you how to measure it -- if indeed that makes sense. Temperatures vary not only geographically, mainly with latitude and altitude, but also with season, time of day, and weather conditions.

    How do you think you'd respond in the event of a so-called "active shooter" situation? Most of us like to think that we'd be able to respond quickly, decisively, and dare I say, it, heroically. The reality of the matter, however, is that the vast majority of people who haven't been properly trained to react would be standing there when the bullets start flying, thinking "this can't be happening to me," as they start taking rounds.

    Chris Christie accused Marco Rubio of being an empty suit, a dilettante who repeats the same memorized speech over and over. Rubio's response: the same memorized speech. For a minute or so on Saturday night, the Republican golden boy seemed like a malfunctioning robot. Delivering the same confusing line four separate times -- Barack Obama, he said, "knows exactly what he's doing" -- Rubio proved the precise point Christie was trying to make. "There it is," Christie said, triumphant. "There it is, everybody." The Republican debate was held three days before the New Hampshire primary in which national front-runner Donald...

    Some of the skirmishes over Mrs. Clinton's emails reflect the disagreements in a post-9/11 era over what should be a government secret and what should not. Nonetheless, 22 emails on Mrs. Clinton's server were held back from a tranche made public last week. Those 22 emails were deemed so highly secret that State Department officials in this case agreed with the intelligence agencies not to release them even in redacted form.

Oh, and also the fact that she hugged both candidates. On Fox News tonight, Megyn Kelly and Howard Kurtz had their doubts about Maddow’s claim she would do the same for Republicans, with Kurtz insisting “she should not have been on that stage.” Kelly, however, pointed out that the RNC has pushed for conservative commentators to co-moderate their debates (i.e....

    While it's not a done deal yet, there's a good chance that we may finally be receiving a final decision from the Supreme Court on the question of so called "assault weapons" bans. Back in December, gun rights activists were largely disappointed when SCOTUS decided they would not hear an appeal to Illinois' assault weapons ban, allowing a lower court ruling in favor of the law to stand. At the time, I speculated that they were waiting for more lower courts to weigh in on similar challenges around the country to see if there was some sort of consensus or...

Malthusian math construes environmental data that invariably leads to millenarian and/or apocalyptic concerns and dangerous anti-human political policies that are holistic and totalitarian by design, and thus fascist to the core.

The letter, which was written in a style described as "disjointed", contained a series of phrases in both languages, including "Germany kills all Muslims", and threatened an attack on the children's parade. Local paper Westfälischer Anzeiger said authorities cancelled the carnival in the town of Herne in western Germany after consulting local police over the note. Around 250 people were expected to attend the event on Sunday as towns all over Germany celebrate the climax of carnival season.

In 1885, not six years later, it is possible to affirm without hesitation that the appearance of that one book formed a noteworthy epoch in the history of economic thought both in England and America. It is not simply that the treatise itself was an eloquent, impassioned plea for the confiscation of rent for the public good as a means of abolishing economic social evils, but rather that the...

    Sanders has propelled himself to the near-top of the Democrats' favorite list based on, among many things, his support for a "living wage." "The current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is a starvation wage," the irascible senator proclaimed at a Capitol Hill rally last year, "and [it] must be raised to a living wage." That's a nice, and unrealistic, sentiment. But the problem is that Sanders doesn't think his own employees deserve that kind of pay. According to the Media Research Center, the Sanders campaign pays its interns only $12 an hour. That's a hefty sum for phone...

It also serves as an antidote for males who are being programmed to accept Western degeneracy, mindless consumerism, and immoral state authority. The purpose of this article is to list and describe the principal doctrines of neomasculinity.

Mark Milley agreed with Neller. “I think that all eligible and qualified men and women should register for the draft,” he said. The two...

    Whenever you're feeling down in the dumps, distressed at the turn of events in the world or simply empty inside, just remember one thing: you could always live in Chicago, so things could be worse. (With apologies, if you happen to actually live in Chicago. I got nothing for ya.) Out in the Windy City there's been a cavalcade of news surrounding the administration of Rahm Emanuel, his police department, his budget, his crime rate and all manner of disasters. But this story has to do with the teachers union. After months of tense negotiations with the city, talks over...

    Chicago Theological Seminary launched a new campaign on Monday intended to raise awareness about white people's ignorance of their own "white privilege." The campaign centers around a YouTube video titled "White Privilege Glasses," in which a young white male receives a pair of "white privilege glasses" that allow him to see the world that black people see, a world in which street signs literally read "slave owner" and sneering police officers go out of their way to be physically aggressive.

    Iowa State University Iowa State University is poised to hold its 16th annual "Social Justice Summit," the day-and-a-half long workshop designed to eliminate prejudice, discrimination and hate from the hearts of attending undergraduates. "{It's} an event designed for undergraduate students aimed at providing them with the opportunity to increase their awareness surrounding issues of inclusion and to develop action plans that will assist them in being agents of change on campus," the university says on its website. Campus Reform reported the event is set for February 19 and February 20. The school's website goes on: "Social justice is the continuous...

    There is a dangerous silence which currently exists among polite and public company in America today regarding the issue of race, a silence which is more dangerous than any perceived outrage by any of the parties which have a stake in the outcome. As a white Christian Southerner -- and a white Christian American -- I know very few people who look like me who think less of black Americans simply because of the colour of their skin. I'm sure there are those who do; I just do not keep company with them. Likewise, I have many black Christian friends...

    It was getting on toward 2 o'clock on Tuesday morning after the bewildering Iowa caucuses, so I can't be too sure about anything. As the TV coverage wound down into nothingness, Chris Matthews of MSNBC became increasingly disgruntled about the lack of clear winners and losers in the Hawkeye State, at least in the Democratic photo finish between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Getting to hear the losers make concession speeches is what makes our democracy exciting, he insisted. Iowa in 2016, according to the Matthews worldview, was not exciting. "This was just vague," he muttered. He may actually have...

    November 18, 2007 By Jack Voelkel GLADYS AYLWARD Small Woman, Big Heart, Great Faith The half-starved Chinese prisoners in Yangcheng were rioting. In the center was a man with a large bloody kitchen meat cleaver. All were shouting. Several men had already collapsed on the ground, mortally wounded. The warden called to A-Weh-Deh, “Go in and stop them!” The woman known to foreigners by her English name, Gladys Aylward, stood trembling at the entrance. “Why me?” she gasped. The warden challenged, “You tell us your God is all powerful. Is He or is He not?” “He is,” she declared, seeking...

    For six days straight during his visit to the United States last year, Pope Francis was, to borrow a phrase from Norman Gimbel, "killing us softly with his words." The boulevards of New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. were lined with adoring throngs as the Pope benignly smiled and blessed these hundreds of thousands of immigrant Americans -- especially the newest illegal arrivals from the other side of our southern border.

    The recent spate of shootings in this city has a lot of people asking why it's happening and how concerned we should be about our safety. After two people were killed and three more injured in Chinatown early Sunday morning, those questions are being asked more and more. The shooting happened on Spadina near Nassau Street, when a gunman opened fire on a group of men outside a restaurant. It's the ninth homicide in the city this year. Eight of those killings involved firearms. That brings the number of shootings up by about 100 per cent over this month last...

    The last Republican president and his Democratic successor both graduated from schools within Harvard University and that should probably be a literal red flag. "Understanding Harvard Law School is very important to understanding our president, Barack Obama," Texas attorney Ted Cruz said in an interview with scholar Marvin Olasky that appeared in the November 7, 2009 issue of World magazine. "He is very much a creature of Harvard Law." "To understand what that means you have to understand that there were more self-declared communists on the Harvard faculty that there were Republicans," Cruz avers. "Every single idea this president has...
