  • 6 Modern Societies Where Women Literally Rule

    Mental Floss ^ | September 29, 2014 | Laura Turner Garrison
    Who runs the world? In these six societies: Girls. By standard definition, a matriarchy is a “family, group or state governed by a matriarch (a woman who is head of a family or tribe).” Anthropologists and feminists have since created more specific classifications for female societies, including the matrilineal system. Matrilineality refers not only to tracing one’s lineage through maternal ancestry, it can also refer to a civil system in which one inherits property through the female line. While the legendary Amazons (probably the most widely known matriarchy) are relegated to mythology, there are a handful of female-led societies...
  • The Utah Polygamy Ruling and the Tale of the Slippery Slope

    The New American ^ | September 1, 2014 | Selwyn Duke
    “Same sex marriage leads away from polygamy, not for it,” said the Brookings Institution’s Jonathan Rauch in 2012. Joining him was the Economist, which wrote just last year that “gay marriage” to polygamy was “A not-so-slippery slope.” But more and more it seems that these and other crystal-ball watchers have slipped on their own prognostication. Headline Aug. 28, 2014: “Federal Judge Opens Door Further to Group Marriage.” That’s from Breitbart’s Austin Ruse, who reports: The Utah ban made it illegal and punishable by up to five years in prison for anyone to cohabit with someone they are not legally married...

    For years, many people have suspected that the New York Fed is more or less controlled by the "too big to fail" banks. Well, now we have smoking gun evidence that this is indeed the case. A very brave lawyer named Carmen Segarra made a series of audio recordings while she was working for the New York Fed. The 46 hours of meetings and conversations that she recorded are being called "the Ray Rice video for the financial sector" because of the explosive content that they contain. What these recordings reveal are regulators that are deeply afraid to do anything...

    Subtitle: the umpteenth confirmation that governments shouldn't be entrusted with our money. This was reported last July, but I've only learned about it now. It's got to be covered, it's too absurd to miss. On 10 July 2014, the Daily Mail reported the planned axing of a wind turbine built with taxpayers' money - almost Ł50,000 - and generating only an average of Ł5 of electricity a month. It was calculated that it would have required 757 years before its cost was offset. I'm tempted to say that this must be the most absurd wind turbine ever but, given...

    For most of the last twenty years the rest of the Baseball world watched Derek Jeter and his team play in October. Yes time and the odds finally caught to the Yankees over the past few seasons and on a few occasions the tables have turned, but that was inevitable. Now Jeter is stepping away from baseball as one of the all-time greats of the game. He doesn’t sit on a tiny plateau at the top of baseball lore by default for being around a long time and being one of those who have besmirched and embarrassed baseball. He’s at...

Jacqui Lambie, a down under Senator, spoke out about the dangers of Sharia Law last week and did so unequivocally. Calling Sharia’s thugs “maniacs and depraved humans, Lambie said, “…they won’t stop committing cold blooded butchery and rapes until every woman in Australia wears a burqa.” But Lambie was just getting started. She continued her counter attack on Sharia’s supporters by blaming them for, “every major terrorist attack on the Western world. The 9/11s, the Bali...

The concept of a totalitarian state was an invention of the twentieth century. The notion of a state or nation whose government could control virtually all aspects of its citizens’ lives was not conceivable in prior times. It is certainly true that in monarchies throughout history, the average subject had little capability to individually alter his finances, geographical mobility or political...

    As marijuana restrictions are eased throughout the nation, lawmakers from both parties are looking to the drug as a potential cash cow to shore up budget deficits and fill local and state coffers. For Democrats, however, a far more insidious pattern is developing, as recent moves by left-wing indicate they see in marijuana as a powerful tool to further control their largely poor and minority constituency with this 21st century "opiate for the masses." The city of Berkeley, CA recently moved to institute policy requiring "medicinal" marijuana outlets to allot certain amounts of their product to be distributed free to...

    WorldNetDaily ^ | September 28, 2014 | Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson
    Extremist Muslims are recruiting willing American blacks for violent jihad against their own fellow citizens. Fired food plant employee, Alton Nolen, a black Muslim, beheaded Colleen Hufford and stabbed another woman last week in Moore, Oklahoma, before he was shot and wounded by the company’s chief operating officer. Nolan reportedly attended a mosque headed by Suhaib Webb, an imam with ties to former al-Qaida mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki. Webb had been the leader of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City. Amazingly, Webb is head of the sister organization of the mosque attended by Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev....

    When is the U.S. banking system going to crash? I can sum it up in three words. Watch the derivatives. It used to be only four, but now there are five "too big to fail" banks in the United States that each have more than 40 trillion dollars in exposure to derivatives. Today, the U.S. national debt is sitting at a grand total of about 17.7 trillion dollars, so when we are talking about 40 trillion dollars we are talking about an amount of money that is almost unimaginable. And unlike stocks and bonds, these derivatives do not represent "investments"...

Effective January 1, 2001, no handgun may be manufactured within California, imported into California for sale, lent, given, kept for sale, or offered/exposed for sale unless that handgun model has passed firing, safety, and drop tests and is certified for sale in California by the Department of Justice.

This is the California-compliant tactile loaded chamber indicator. Before a new handgun can be sold in California, it must first be...

    While the liberal media has spent the past week lauding the civil rights record of Eric Holder, missed in the discussion is the potential consequence his actions on sentencing and criminal enforcement will have on African-American neighborhoods. Progressive pundits have noted his vocal involvement in both the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases as evidence of his commitment to "racial justice" and desire to increase the safety of minority residents. By leading the charge to reduce sentencing for drug traffickers, the ultimate legacy that Eric Holder leaves the black community may in fact be more criminals, more shootings, more funerals and...

He attacked a second woman and would have killed her too, except that the company’s COO has a gun and knows how to use it. This could actually be a case of workplace violence, as the attack occurred immediately after Alton had been fired. (For what, has not been reported.) Nolen had a colorful criminal record, which makes one wonder how he got a job at all when millions are unemployed. Paul has written about the...

    In the genetic history of our species, the mamas outnumber the papas. A new study in Investigative Genetics reports that females have made a bigger contribution than men. By studying the DNA of 623 males from 51 populations, the researchers found more genetic diversity in the DNA inherited from mothers than they did in the DNA inherited from fathers. At first glance, these results could be taken to mean that there used to be more women than men. But if you know anything about history, it makes more sense to blame reproductive habits: In many cultures, more women reproduced than...

Opposition to the environmentalist agenda of deindustrialization is not just viewed as wrong policy, but the rankest heresy. To deny that man-made global warming is going to destroy the Earth is tantamount to spitting upon the holy scriptures of the “green” faith.

In fact, scientific progress points exactly in the opposite direction.

    The looney Left is after Rush Limbaugh again. They have a maniacal fixation with trying to destroy him because they don’t like what he says. The Left has always believed that freedom of speech applies only to them. Over the past sixty years the media has coddled and supported the Left by encouraging the belief that they are not subject to the rules and laws the rest of us have to live under. This delusion could be brought to a dead stop with one simple move. A recent case in point involves a group of ten Leftist loons who have...

    President Obama’s remarks to the UN General Assembly also mark the first time a sitting U.S. President has ever chaired a Security Council meeting.  His remarks were a mixture of retreaded Bush speeches about the evil of terrorism, and cheerleading language like “Islam teaches peace,” versus ISIS, who is “hiding behind a false Islam."  At the end, Obama couldn’t help himself from apologizing for America’s problems, as if the world needs our apology. I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided....

    War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. Ministry of Truth has spoken, now go home, prepare for the next election. Don't worry, your votes will still be bought with more federal gifts from the treasury War is hellaciously beneficial to a struggling Presidency. And the hard left progressive political establishment in the United States knows how to wage a good war. Just take a look at their successes regarding domestic warfare. They have waged a war on drugs, and a war on poverty, and the poor are on the verge of surrender! As for using the military in...

    Faith is the fulfillment of the spiritual blessing of hope. It’s the difference between serving Christ, the personification of benevolence, or slavery to allah that exemplifies intolerance Social media is probably one of the most insidious misnomers in use today. It entices tech savvy young people to become reliant on the internet to fill their social needs. A belief that connecting with others through the web, via twitter, Facebook, Skype and other digital sites, can replace intimacy has developed a void in western culture. Individuals are taking solace in the safety of internet friendships to avoid the hurt that can...

    In this case reported from Antioch, Tennessee, a domestic argument ends with a stranger being drawn into a potentially deadly encounter.     The accused and a woman were arguing, and the accused told her to to get out of the car on the Interstate.   A stranger, seeing a woman walking on the Interstate, stopped to ask if she needed help.   Shortly after, the accused came back, stopped, drew a pistol and pointed it at the two.   The stranger drew his own gun, words were exchanged, and the accused drove off.   No shots were fired. Talk to any police officer, and...

    Ah, yes. The infamous “latte salute.” If you haven’t heard about it yet, Obama walked off a helicopter insouciantly clutching an environmentally-deadly Styrofoam latte cup in his right hand. When the two Marines waiting at the base of steps offered him a smart salute, Obama, who seemed to avoid looking at them, vaguely pawed his forehead with the hand holding that cup and then walked on. Here, see it for yourself: People in the military and conservatives were outraged. Liberals have been outraged at the outrage. Here are a few of the comments I’ve culled from liberals on my “real...

    According to the latest findings of the liberal-leaning Brookings Institute, nearly 10 percent of working-age adults in Americans have limited or no understanding of the English language. Their findings rebuke decades of rhetoric from the Progressive left insisting that multiculturalism and language diversity is of benefit to the nation as a whole and a more "compassionate" way to look at American assimilation. Brookings provided the data to justify what conservatives have known all along, the mastery of English proficiency matters greatly. It is the first key step to upward mobility and vital to becoming a "true" American. The concept of true...

    In Pennsylvania, the legislature is looking at a strong preemption bill, HB2011, to put some strength into the Pennsylvania preemption law.   Local governments have been scoffing at the law, because it has no provision for enforcement.   Other states have had to add enforcement measures to their law for this very reason.  All states have some form of preemption for gun laws.  The law seemed likely to be brought up last week.   It wasn't. From ar15.com, brich2929 writes, on 17 September, that State Rep Brad Roae's facebook page had this notice:  We will be voting on a pro gun rights...

    Published on FrontPage MagazineBy Enza Ferreri The umpteenth case of child sex abuse in Britain perpetrated by Muslims, the Rotherham abuse, has understandably left the self-proclaimed “progressives” and multiculturalists in disarray. The Leftist media outlets are on the defensive but still trying to maintain their ground. Their best weapons are to distract public attention by diverting it to whatever has not been committed by Muslims, and the use of double standards, of which the most shocking example is the differential treatment of Muslims versus the Catholic Church. The same people, assorted Leftists and secularists, who immediately jumped to the...

    The Federalist ^ | 09/24/2014 | Mollie Hemingway
    Five years ago, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the most fascinating thing in a candid interview with Sunday New York Times Magazine reporter Emily Bazelon: "Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of." People who aren’t as gung-ho about the snuffing out of young life as your typical mainstream media journalist noted this interview and discussed the deep ties of abortion and birth control to the progressive eugenics movement. In 1992, Ron Weddington, co-counsel in...
