    When Deng Xiaoping took over China in the late 1970’s, China was a very poor country. One of the first things that Deng did was to allow individuals to acquire and maintain property. This capitalistic approach started one of the greatest economic transformations in world history. More people in China have been lifted from poverty in a shorter span of time than ever before in human history. Half a billion Chinese citizens have risen out of poverty due to China’s economic swing to capitalist policies!China still has its problems, but while the US is moving more and more towards a...

    One thing is certain, once the cards are issued, the already dire unemployment figures among America’s blue collar workers are going to balloon and the welfare rolls are going to swell The ISIS threat has already been forgotten and the Ebola crisis has been dumped in the lap of the Department of Defense. Climate change has been declared to be the number one threat to our national security. The next manufactured crisis to be resolved is amnesty by fiat. Soldiers, highly trained to fight wars only, will provide medical containment expertise, testing for Ebola, and hermetic and cremation mortuary services,...

    I do not know where the above picture was taken.   I recall that I saw many empty holsters on police in Panama at shift change.   The practice was that the police did not keep a pistol with them; they were issued one at work, and turned it in at the end of the shift.  I vaguely recall seeing a banana or plantain in a couple of them. I understand that Mexican police generally keep their firearms with them, but several other countries in Central and South America have the same policy as I saw in Panama.   Police in...

    The outcome of the midterm elections will have a dramatic effect on Obama’s ability to continue his destruction of the U.S. economy and other policies. One man has died of Ebola in the U.S. and he came here from Liberia. Two of the nurses that tended him are in intensive care and likely to survive. A third was thought to be infected, but wasn’t. That news has been sufficient to keep most Americans calm as the media has done its best to exploit Ebola-related news. The public absorbed the facts and came to their own conclusion.

    Message to Detroit: The UN’s got the money, the UN’s got the water No one, and most especially Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, should be surprised that two United Nations lawyers came to town to scold city officials for cutting off water to delinquent customers, sanctimoniously describing the water shut-offs as a “human rights” violation. The United Nations virtually owns cities and towns of North America like Detroit. They’re just not usually that open about it. The UN ownership of cities and towns is called Agenda 21.

    Matt Dorschel, on the left Last Wednesday, 15 October, the University of Idaho held a forum on "guns on campus".   The main presenter was Matt Dorschel, university executive director for public safety and security.  While the forum attracted only a few students and faculty, the policy presented was radical.   From the Lewiston Tribune (pdf): Dorschel said any firearm sighting is grounds to call 911 even if a person is not purposely showing their weapon. He said firearm holders have a responsibility to conceal their weapons and they are violating the university's policy if they don't.  Despite this strict interpretation...

    Listen to an audio version of this column At this point, only the most deceived or grossly uninformed among us do not realize that a devilish enemy regime has taken over our nation. Under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) we have seen unprecedented lawlessness from the executive branch of the federal government. The laundry list of Obama and company's malfeasance and arguably impeachable offenses continues to grow. Perhaps the most diabolical advancement of Obama's tyrannical, anti-American agenda is in the area of the radical homosexual movement. From militant homosexual activists, we have seen a full-frontal assault on the...

    You have to see it to believe it. A student of Kurdish descent has submitted a resolution to the UK's National Union of Students (NUS) to condemn the Islamic State, but the motion has been rejected because it offended the sensibilities of the Union’s Black Students Officer (BSO) who led a voting bloc to defeat it. The NUS considers the ongoing conflict with ISIS to be “Islamophobic”. You couldn't make this up. At least they recognise that ISIS represents Islam, and is not some totally extraneous group that for some hard-to-fathom reason has decided to associate itself to the "religion...

    Our very own liberal leviathan, the bloated, blind and wheezing U.S. Government, is preparing 34 million blank Green Cards and Work Visas in anticipation of Obama’s unilateral and unconstitutional plan to grant executive amnesty. Although this comes as no surprise, the fact our fearless leader is waiting until after the election speaks volumes about his politics and duplicitous nature. The disturbing realization the President of the United States is consciously allowing millions of Illegal immigrants, those who have little or no allegiance for this country’s heritage, to greatly influence our nation’s policies and potential survival is criminal and treasonous to...

    If a woman's ability to choose is truly paramount to liberals, why do they attack those who choose to stay at home and raise a family in a world that is brimming with immorality, promiscuity and absentee parents? Furthermore, if feminists truly care about women, shouldn't they support their rights as individuals, equals, regardless of their political or religious affiliation? The real war on women has nothing to do with opposing abortion, protecting a child's life, or free birth control; it's a perilous product of the radical left's undying hatred of those independent voices who don't share their sexist views...

    Ebola virus disease (EVD) was first identified in 1976, in what was then called Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo). The name comes from the Ebola River, a tributary of the Congo River in central Africa, where the majority of EVD epidemics have occurred. However, recent outbreaks are now in Western Africa, and involve major cities, as well as rural areas. WHO pegs the average EVD case fatality rate at around 50%. Outbreaks in the past have logged case fatality rates of 25 to an astonishing 90 percent. Recently, symptoms of this dread disease have been well-publicized. Indeed,...

    A Washington Free Beacon report has revealed the fact that North Carolina Democrat Senator Kay Hagan nominated a state court judge for a position on the federal bench as a quid pro quo for a favorable ruling for her husband. As a Democrat there was no need for Hagan to be cautious in the construction of her conspiracy with Superior Court Judge Calvin E. Murphy. The dirty deal was concocted in 2009 when Democrats had a corruption headlock on the Tar Heel State. Hagan’s husband Charles “Chip” Hagan was a managing member of a corporation called Hydrodyne Industries LLC (HI)...

Had what happened occurred south of the border, it would have been called an unfortunate car accident or at best, an incident of road rage. The incident occurred Monday morning in a strip mall located in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, about 40 km. southeast of Montreal. Two members of the Canadian Forces were walking in the parking lot of the mall when it was alleged they were deliberately struck by...

    A man in Britain has been convicted for his fantasies. Robul Hoque, 39, was found guilty of downloading "prohibited images" of cartoon girls, some in school uniforms, doing dirty deeds. The fact that these manga drawings are available on legitimate sites did not sway the judge. Nor did the fact that—oh yeah—there were no actual humans in the pictures. No humans. So how old, exactly, is a cartoon? Is the cartoon 7, or 9, or just shy of 18? Trick question: A cartoon doesn't have an age, because a cartoon is never born. The life meter never started ticking.

Yet our corrupt media refuse to fully vet this principle cause of contagion thereby allowing silence to spread the hemorrhagic disease. Ancient burial traditions, so deeply rooted in the native culture that government authorities are unable to bridge the gap of distrust, really are big factors because healthy relatives are required to put their hands into the Ebola bodies, still warm, just after death.

    The Democratic Party depends on voting blocs of less educated, less wealthy, more knee-jerk voters than the Republican Party, As this is being written, Rasmussen Reports says that 48% of likely voters approve of President Obama’s performance in office while 50% disapproved. Other polls indicate far more unhappiness with Obama, but in general one must conclude that half the voters are idiots. He is an enormous failure domestically and with his foreign relations. In early July, a Quinnipiac University national poll found that Obama was regarded as “the worst president since World War II.” The only poll that counts will...

Over the next five months, Quilon became increasingly unwelcome as he bragged about having been convicted for murder and armed robbery, his previous experiences as a gang member, and killing a “snitch” in prison....

    This installment reveals how Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt acted like a king and dictator even as he managed to be dangerously incorrect on nearly every decision he was required to make. Emperor and Dictator From his first days as Chief Executive, Franklin Roosevelt pushed aside the Constitution in order to act as an emperor and dictator rather than an elected President. Upon taking office, Dictator Roosevelt made private ownership of gold illegal and sent government agents to invade private homes and businesses searching for gold to confiscate with fervor the Spanish Conquistadors would be proud of. Before Roosevelt’s illegal Gestapo...

    Self-proclaimed Clinton Democrats are struggling this election cycle, and not even their powerful namesakes may be enough to save them. Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have tried to turn on their charms to help centrist Democrats in Kentucky and Arkansas. But as candidates in both states are slipping, help from the party’s preeminent power couple is falling short. In Kentucky, Alison Lundergan Grimes has clung tightly to both Bill and Hillary Clinton as she tries to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell(R). The former president has already campaigned with the Democratic hopeful twice and will head to the Bluegrass State...

    Debbie Dooley is not a tree-hugger -- in fact she bills herself as a radical right-wing grandmother, and she is a founding member of the national Tea Party and a leader of the Atlanta Tea Party group. But Dooley is also an outspoken proponent of distributed solar generation and other forms of renewable distributed energy. She will be the featured speaker next week at the Wisconsin Solar Energy Industries Association’s Solar Social Speakers series -- as advocates in the state say solar is under attack by elected officials, regulators and major utilities. While in Wisconsin, Dooley will also visit a...

    Senator Coburn of Oklahoma has been attempting to remove the ban on carrying guns on lands managed by the Army Corps of Engineer for several years.   Perhaps the Obama administration should have agreed to the legislative compromise before the ban was challenged in court.   Now the Corps  is faced with a court decision citing Peruta in the Ninth Circuit, that declares that carry outside of the home is a constitutional right.  On 10 January, 2014, Judge B. Lynn Winmill of the United States District Court for the District of Idaho, issued a preliminary injunction against the Army...

    Good day. I downloaded the new and improved OS, OS X Yosemite. At first blush, there are some features I miss about Mavericks, but I need to waste.....I mean, spend more time with Yosemite. It's too early to say "yay" or "nay", or perhaps the conclusion won't be so black and white, unless you're a "I HATE! all things Apple...including those snobby Mac Users", of course. What say you about OS X Yosemite? Any pointers/advice/recommendations by you techies out there?

    In Atherton, Calif., 94027, the most expensive home currently on the market is a 12,840-square-foot Mediterranean mansion with a $21.988 million price tag. Not a millionaire? Good luck finding a place to live in this Silicon Valley enclave. The least expensive home for sale in the 94027 ZIP code is a 1,370-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath bungalow. In other words, a starter home–with an asking price of $1.499 million.

    Not a day has gone by in the last few weeks without a mention of Ebola. Having made its way into North America, Ebola has become reached the top of the “to fear” list, making many worry that it will only be a matter of time before the disease dominates the continent. Effective vaccines and treatments for Ebola have yet to be discovered, though one may be hiding in plain sight: cannabis. Cannabinoids in marijuana have gained more and more of a reputation as a way to control and aid one’s immune systems, specifically with diseases that target a body’s...

    No-one doubts that there will be people who hate Jews. The most obvious example is devout and observant Muslims, who are commanded by their religion to do so. They are also ordered to hate Christians, but for some reason the latter injunction doesn't evoke even a fraction of the emotion inspired by the former, despite the fact that an infinitely higher number of Christians than Jews suffer the consequences of this today. Incidentally - this is not relevant to the rest of the article -, I've found what I consider a better way to distinguish between Muslims of various...
