  • How quickly they disappear when their story doesn’t “fit” the liberal narrative

    Coach is Right ^ | 4/21/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    If you’re not familiar with the names Kwasi Enin or Frazier Glenn Cross you’re in the vast majority. The liberal, agenda driven media doesn’t want you to know who these people are because what has made them noteworthy does not fit its narrative of life in America. One is young and Black the other old and White. They are examples of the best and the worst of our society. Kwasi Enin is a perfect contradiction to everything the liberals say about the “virtues” of drug addicted, single, minority mothers raising children in crime ridden public housing. Seventeen year old Kwasi...

    The Latin motto on the great seal of the State of Massachusetts, loosely translated, means: "By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty."  It is rather inconsistent with Massachusetts strict firearms laws.  Those laws became a little more reasonable on April 18th, 2014. A federal judge, relying on both the McDonald and Heller decisions and current Massachusetts law, effectively removed one class of prohibited people from the law. The case MICHAEL WESSON, THOMAS WOODS, and COMMONWEALTH SECOND AMENDMENT, INC.,  involves two well established men who had out of state marijuana convictions from decades ago.    Massachusetts decriminalized...

    Mike McDaniel is one of the best and most knowledgeable thinkers and writers when it comes to guns and the Second Amendment. That's why it's worth sitting up and taking notice when he revisits one of his own posts to discuss reader objections. I'll run you through what Mike has to say and then tell you why I agree with him. This is a long post, but I hope it's engaging enough to sustain your interest all the way through, so that you'll take the time to weigh in with your own opinions.It all started with a post entitled "Why...

I run no ads, and I make no money on this. Political correctness is increasingly morphing into a more hideous monster hiding just beneath the surface.  Fully abandoning the decades-old dream of a classless society, the Left is embracing its opposite:  a caste system, complete with pedigrees, credentials, and the benefits of membership in the ruling caste.  Of course, this caste system places the progressive elite at the top, as...

    Our Lord is risen. Our God lives. The Shroud of Turin is speaking to all Christians now more than at any other time in our current history when so many of our religious freedoms are under attack by the US government. John C. Iannone is a Catholic writer and lecturer who is traveling throughout the South during our pre- Easter preparations to bring the story of the holy Shroud to us. One can only marvel at what this holy garment reveals to us about the suffering Jesus went through to be one of us and to suffer in such horrible...

    Did you know that Family Dollar is closing 370 stores? When I learned of this, I was quite stunned. I knew that retailers that serve the middle class were really struggling right now, but I had no idea that things had gotten so bad for low end stores like Family Dollar. In the post-2008 era, dollar stores had generally been one of the few bright spots in the retail industry. As millions of Americans fell out of the middle class, they were looking to stretch their family budgets as far as possible, and dollar stores helped them do that....

    Gun Watch ^ | 19 April, 2014 | Dean Weingarten
    Last year, a landowner in rural Yavapai County, Arizona, was finally vindicated in a hearing after a prolonged legal battle with local zoning officials.  The case involved local officials who claimed that they had the power to shut down shooting on private land, because shooting was not an "approved use" in the zoning code.  The closest complaining neighbor was  miles distant from the property.  A common practice in "model" zoning codes is to invert the ordinary structure of American law, claiming that everything that is not allowed is prohibited, instead of the long recognized construct of everything that is...

    The militant homosexual movement’s multi-pronged assault on truth, rationality and freedom continues to steamroll across our nation. One of its latest fronts to emerge is in the area of so-called “transgenderism.” We are seeing more and more pushes for laws that seek to validate and accommodate people who have this mental and spiritual disorder. MassResistance reported on Wednesday that two women on the Boston City Council proposed an ordinance that would mandate the city only enter into contracts with insurance companies that do not “discriminate” against “gender identity or expression.” In other words, Boston wants its city employee insurance to...

In other words, the number of people that are taking money out of the system is far greater than the number of people that are putting money into the system.

    With the exception of the IRS I think we have gotten the unwanted attention of just about every federal, state and local agency that exists. The gauntlet of regulations, fees and penalties have become so daunting that our management team just withdrew our permit application and decided not to pursue the expansion in our county or even state. The deck is so stacked against business today it is necessary to ask oneself if the goal of our government is to create a post industrial society out of America

    We learned that the government will do anything to private citizens in order to grab land and private property either under the guise of protecting an “endangered” desert tortoise that is actually overpopulated, or getting rid of “feral” and destructive “trespassing cattle” grazing the land for generations, cattle that are in the way of developing a $5 billion Chinese solar panel plant (ENN), and the exploitation of rare earth elements in the larger adjacent area.

    Once upon a time there were more than fifty cattle ranches operating in the area of Southern Nevada where Cliven Bundy, with the help of numerous armed patriots from all over, is making his stand against the abusive, bankrupting tactics of the bullying federal government. Now, there is only one rancher and his family left. After several generations of his ancestors’ having use of the land in question, Bundy is literally the “last man standing” in what is, evidently, a long-range vendetta against ranchers by land-grabbing federal bureaucrats who, also literally, have gone power mad–that is, mad for solar power...

With corporatist dominance over the mainstream media for decades backing an elitist machine in Washington and a global banking cartel footing the...

Romney was vilified as an evil, out-of-teach aristocrat that despised the less fortunate. The truth is the exact opposite as we know that Romney gives generously to the charity, unlike Obama and his progressive liberal allies, and that he created companies that actually hired people and paid them wages, again unlike most liberals.

    As the furor over compensation of college athletes continues to heat up across the nation, a number of different proposals and options have been explored. Last month members of the Northwestern football team stepped the debate up by successfully petitioning the National Labor Relations Board to form a union and bargain for benefits. The issue was further highlighted when Shabazz Napier, star of the recently crowned NCAA Mens Basketball Champion University of Connecticut Huskies, told reporters that sometimes he goes to bed “starving” because he can’t afford food. While the NCAA has been adamant in its policy to not monetarily...

    I've written about the hijacking of language by the Left and some of its manifestations. There are many other aspects of it, like the wounds inflicted on grammar by the use of "they", "them", "theirs" in reference to a singular subject. For example: "Everyone knows what they are doing" or "The user must log in with their password". This is done only because it's politically incorrect to use "he", "him", "his", to cover both men and women, as it allegedly gives men a status of superiority (the same as in saying "man" to mean "the human species"). Politically correct writers...

    The midterm elections of 2014 are coming up and the anti-Second Amendment forces are starting to step up their attacks on our gun rights. The biggest offender is former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is spending $50 million to defeat pro-gun candidates and to destroy the National Rifle Association. He announced his campaign on the Today show where he continued to lie about his intentions of disarming law-abiding citizens. This anti-Constitution jerk is merging his puppet groups, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, into a new group called Everytown for Gun Safety....

    Demonstration against Neo-Nazism in Dresden (13 February 2012) When I was being trained as a peace officer, the subject of searching or "frisking" citizens was addressed several times.   Some of the training seemed to be  more about how to finesse the legal boundaries than the necessity of respecting citizens' rights.   I vividly remember one instructor saying: "I have never heard of a judge throwing out a case where a weapon was actually found." The pendulum seems to be swinging back the other way. From AP at FindLaw.com: The judges ordered that the officers' discovery of the loaded pistol carried...
  • After the Bundy debacle, will government use murder to reassert its dictatorial authority?

    What steps will our federal and state governments take to reassert their dictatorial authority over a people who have become far too confident in an ability to defy their superiors? Will Barack Obama quietly authorize assault and battery, even the murder of a few unimportant Americans in order to intimidate an annoying, freedom seeking public back into line? According to the terms of New York’s Safe Act, April 15th was the final day by which “Assault Weapons” were to be registered with the state. But of an estimated 1-2 million rifles which have made paper felons of Empire State owners,...

    In an interesting interview [link at URL] to the New York Review of Books, George Soros shared his ideas on many topics including Europe, Russia and the Ukranian crisis. He also presented his new book [link at URL] The tragedy of the European Union: Disintegration or Revival? Whether one agrees or disagrees with Soro's interpretations and arguments, it is hard to deny that the interview is extremely insightful and gives a lot of food for thought. I offer a discussion of the part of the interview devoted to Ukraine. George Soros emphasized the necessity of a large-scale technical and financial...
