  • ‘Master of ‘Disaster’ John Boehner Back from the Ironing Board

    Here he is hoping that the world waits breathlessly for what he has to say when the only one on Earth who doesn’t know that John Boehner is no more is John Boehner. Oy Vey! Just what the world needs: ‘Master of Disaster’ former House Speaker John Boehner saying President Donald Trump’s time in office has so far been a “complete disaster”. Boehner copies to a T, his golfing buddy former President President Barack Obama in stubbornly refusing to go away when his time is up. Trying desperately to hang on to a position no longer theirs makes both Boehner...

    Ultraliberal Hollywood and all of 'LIBERAL MEDIA' hate and are deathly afraid of Donald Trump It was Bob Dylan who put together the phrase, “... Money doesn’t talk, it SWEARS.” And that is about the first level up from the bottom-line reason behind most of the problems we have in the world today. At least, the reason for bulldozer-powerful LIES mowing down what is left of today’s rapidly disintegrating civilization. In 1984, I watched a disintegrating Democratic Party turn itself completely over to the dark side when Jesse Jackson introduced his ‘Rainbow Coalition’. The DNC at that point became the...

    Stay free, stay strong, do your part for the civil defense, and we will have an ever increasing, responsibly armed citizenry against the forces of evil, and maintain our unique country, free in a world of oppression One of the great freedoms I can now exercise since leaving California is the right to own and carry firearms (keep and bear arms), which the Constitution guarantees the government will not even touch (infringe). Of course they do, especially in California and other liberal states. But in Florida, you can apply for a concealed carry weapons (CCW) permit, and if you meet...
  • Manchester Bomber ‘Slips Down the Pecking Order’ With Citizenry Left On Their Own

    The FBI and MI5 would be more honest if they admitted to American and British populations: When it comes to the horrors of Islamist terrorism, you’re on your own FBI ‘warned MI5 in January that the Manchester bomber was planning an attack on Britain’. So claim the mainstream media. The take-down-Trump-obsessed FBI flagged Britain’s MI5 that Manchester bomber Salman Abedi was planning a terrorist attack on Britain.

    The Coach's Team ^ | 5/28/17 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    Did former President Obama try to co-opt media coverage of President Donald Trump's international trip by making Italy his first stop in an all-expenses paid trip around the world? Isn't this the first time that a former president traveled a route nearly parallel with that of the new President? Obama departed for Italy on Friday, one day before the People's President embarked for Saudi Arabia. The Obama private jet was encircled by six Eurofighter Fourth Wing fighter jets en route to Italy for his five day stay at the $15,000 a night Borgo Finocchieto, thirteenth century restored village, owned by...
  • Nonimmigrant Aliens may Legally buy and Posses Firearms in the USA, If:

    Gun Watch ^ | http://gunwatch.blogspot.com/2017/05/nonimmigrant-aliens-may-legally-buy-and.html | Dean Weingarten
    It has long been known that nonimmigrant aliens may purchase and own firearms  in the United States for hunting or for sporting purposes. In order to legally purchase firearms from federally licensed dealers, non-resident aliens have to show a legal hunting license or that they "have been admitted" for sporting purposes. The easiest way to obtain a document to allow purchases at gun stores is a hunting license. Some Chinese students in Arizona recently fell afoul of the law by purchasing *resident* hunting licenses when they were not technically eligible to do so.  From azcentral.com: In recent months, federal...
  • Embarrassment of Riches: Reversing U.S. minerals import dependency

    R Street ^ | May 25, 2017 | Ned Mamula and Catrina Rorke
    As recently as 1990, the United States was the world’s largest producer of minerals—a collection of nonfuel resources that are the building blocks of today’s technologies. In the ensuing decades, quite a different trend has emerged. Of 88 mineral commodities tracked by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the United States is more than 25 percent import-dependent for 62 of them. That trend is growing worse. In its annual Mineral Commodity Summary, USGS notes: Several U.S. metal mines and processing facilities were idled or closed permanently in 2016, including iron ore mines in Michigan and Minnesota; three primary aluminum smelters in...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | May 27, 2017 | Philip Cottraux
    By Philip Cottraux The arena filled with young people as a cloud of anticipation grew thick in the air. A pop star emerged on stage before an adoring crowd. The cheers mingled with acoustics thundered into the night sky. Some were close enough to see their idol, but most could only faintly see her in the distance. Her image played on a giant telescreen, singing to the backdrop of glittery music. Then a terrible explosion shook the ground, and screams of adoration were drowned by shrieks of bloody horror. Pop music concerts are exercises of pure fantasy. A famous young...

    Fascist leftism, a death cult embedded in a Democratic Party Terrorism, fascism, political correctness, and sexual violence: Four Horsemen of the Left It has been more than a quarter century since social workers in Rotherham, England and elsewhere began reporting that young women and girls were being “groomed” (i.e. drugged, beaten, raped, threatened with death) and then pimped out by ethnic minority (i.e. Islamic) taxi drivers living in their “community.” The girls were beaten and worse if they tried to escape. Some were murdered. Easy Meat: Inside Britain’s Grooming Gang Scandal, is a hard book to read, but it should...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 05/27/17 | Arthur Christopher Schaper
    The intelligentsia impulse is all about power. It's about a small faction of academics, intellectuals, and arrogant eggheads who think they know better than everyone else One study I read labeled the prophets in the Old Testament one type of intellectual. I disagree, since they operated as revelators to a nation which had rejected the laws of God and rejected His precepts. The philosophers of Ancient Greece and Rome fall into this “intellectual” category more accurately, since they praised their reasoning, research, and logo ahead of revelation and physical effort The common denominator among them? They were spectacularly wrong on...

    So, Schumer, Pelosi, Sanders, de Blasio and Zuckerberg, get your act together to understand that no one, government or conglomerate can supply health, happiness or purpose for another human being One unremarkable guest (didn’t get his name, in any case) appearing on the Intelligence Report on FBN emphatically asked how poor people are served if the budget is cut that goes to the very people who provide the services? What he didn’t understand is that the budget allocated to administrators only fuels administration. For the most part, a minor percentage makes it into the pockets of those meant to be...

    Western civilization is experiencing a very different type of invasion. There are no uniforms, ships or aircraft, but there are soldiers...Morlocks wearing jeans and sneakers Like in the H.G. Wells classic, The Time Machine, Europe is living the fictional nightmare of being led to the slaughter, unable or unwilling to grasp the gravity of their predicament. They have opened their borders to millions of immigrants with a vastly different culture and belief system. Many are nothing more than cave-dwelling Morlocks feeding on Europe’s submissive and compliant citizenry. Numerous other migrants and their offspring demonstrate resistance and downright refusal to assimilate,...

    This weekend, he will continue his crusade on the national stage, restarting the Civil War, reopening old racial wounds, but revealing his political ambition, his only true interest As the Robert E. Lee monument was being removed last Friday, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu gave a victory speech to a select group of supporters at Gallier Hall, ironically, a former slave auction house. In the last week, the speech received lavish praise from the liberal media, both locally and nationally. Landrieu received glowing tributes throughout the mainstream news media, from the pages of the liberal Times Picayune in New Orleans...
  • Cats 1,100 times as deadly to wildlife as lead poisoning?

    Gun Watch ^ | 27 May, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
     Image from spiegel.com The number of animals that die from lead poisoning because of lead projectiles or lead sinkers on fishing tackle, is highly disputed. The high end estimates are about 10-20 million a year in the United States. Let us put that into perspective. Cats kill birds and small animals. Lead poisoning kills some birds and animals. Animals are killed in collisions with vehicles on our roads.  All animals die. How significant are these numbers?  In Internet wanderings I came across some numbers that show that estimates of the deaths by these various means are pretty wild. The...

    A group of feminists at the University of Mary Washington is suing the college for failing “to protect them from a sexually hostile school environment” stemming from the social media app Yik Yak. The lawsuit, funded by the Feminist Majority Foundation for the group Feminists United, alleges the university and its former president, Richard Hurley, violated Title IX (which relates to offensive online posts) as well as the 14th amendment when they failed to take sufficient action to prevent offensive speech by male students at the university.

    Vusumuzi Mthembu, writing on polygamy in the Nguni culture, said: "Bathi asiganwe umfazi ngamunye. Lezi zintombi ezingangotshani zizophelelaphi? Ziyogana izinyamazane? Phinde!" Translated, it says "They say we must be married to one wife. What will then happen to these many women? Who will they marry? Deers? Never!" Perhaps the question Vusumuzi would have to answer today is: "If we want to marry many wives, can we afford to?" And this is what the University of KwaZulu-Natal's cultural expert, Gugu Mkhize says all polygamists-to-be must consider -- the financial implications of the practice. "Polygamy seems not viable in the 21st century...

    The Epoch Times ^ | May 25, 2017 | Joshua Philipp
    If you were to ask most people about the origins of communism, they’d likely point to Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, authors of “The Communist Manifesto.” If you asked a Marxist, however, they’d likely point to François-Noël “Gracchus” Babeuf, who is regarded as the first revolutionary communist. And if Babeuf could still speak today and was asked about the origins of his belief, he’d likely reply that, well, it’s complicated. On July 28, 1794, French politician Maximilien Robespierre was beheaded in front of a crowd by guillotine, bringing an end to the dictatorship of the Jacobin Club, a revolutionary political...

    It's now been scientifically proven that the wimpier the guy, the more likely he is to be a socialist. No kidding. According to a new study, physically weaker men are more prone to support socialism, a trend psychologists say may be because they feel they can’t compete against stronger men and are therefore consider inequality more threatening.  According to the Times, U.K., Brunel University ran a study on 171 men, measuring everything from their strength, height, weight and even bicep circumference. What the university found was that the physically inferior men tended to be the ones who said they supported the redistribution...

    ...and make everyone poorer in the process Of all the Dems hare-brained schemes, the “fight for fifteen” has to be one of the most idiotic. It’s a plan that will decimate jobs for young people, force corporations to eviscerate their workforces in favor of robots, send manufacturing businesses overseas, devalue the wages people are already earning, drive up the price of virtually everything you buy at retail and, in the end, will succeed only in raising the poverty line to a new, higher, level. It really is just monumentally stupid.

    Zuckerberg doesn't seem to understand that handing out cash is not the same thing as creating wealth He is not the first to tout this idea. In fact, it’s been a favorite of Bernie Bro types for a while now. But it’s one thing when some lefty chucklehead on Facebook is pushing the idea of a universal, guaranteed minimum income for everyone - provided by the government with no work requirement whatsoever. It’s another thing when one of the richest and most influential people in the world signs on. Some will suggest this is a signal Zuckerberg wants to run...
