    This nightmare thought woke me in the wee hours the other night .... Can you imagine if a certain someone staged a certain attempted act on himself (or on one of his cronies, willingly or not)? The act would be staged to be unsuccessful -- perhaps a close call -- and he would use it as his clarion call to carry out a certain action on his agenda.Even more: imagine if he staged it to coincide with the annual Right-to-Life march, to pin it on pro-lifers -- to proverbially "kill two birds with one stone." And his lapdog leftist media...

    As Florida becomes the first state to register one million concealed carry permits and the Illinois’ legislature writes the nations’ most draconian gun-ban regulations, the US government is quietly using $1.6 billion in borrowed money to amass ammunition for the domestic operations of Homeland Security. A 91 page standard transaction form filled out by the Department of Homeland Security Training Center in Glynco, GA reveals a staggering amount of ammunition purchased (in unit price in the thousands) by the Department. The .223 Rem Caliber 62/64 Grain JHP was purchased in quantity of...

    Living in this city your entire life gives one the opportunity to experience things you would not normally encounter in any other part of the country. Many of these experiences are deeply unpleasant and disturbing, including periodic attempts, with varying degrees of success, by terrorists to blow up large sections of it, along with its inhabitants. Putting aside the preternatural feeling that I’m living in a very bad Michael Bay film-as if there is any other kind-there aren’t many things that occur to or in New York that shake me out of the existential torpor which stems from spending most...

    A good jobs report? Sure, if one is 55 and over. In December the American jobs gerontocracy continued its relentless course, and as the two charts below summarize since Obama's first term, some 2.7 million jobs in the 16-55 year old category have been lost. The "offset": 4 million jobs for Americans between 55 and 69. For all those young people graduating from college (with $150,000 in student loans) who are unable to get a job, here is our advice: tell your parents, and grandparents, to retire already. Oh wait, they can't because Bernanke destroyed their savings. Oops -...

  • Hungary's Christian-Influenced Constitution (Theonomy Applied)

    Theonomy Resources ^ | DECEMBER 25, 2012
    On April 25, 2011, Hungary adopted a new constitution titled "The Fundamental Law of Hungary," which took effect January 1, 2012. This constitution, while not entirely Christian, does include several biblical principles of civil government, as well as statements explicitly acknowledging both God and Christianity's important impact on the nation. In aspects of the constitution (see excerpts below), one sees a marked difference between Hungary's direction and America's direction. While American law denigrates marriage, the family, the helpless (especially the unborn), church/state cooperation, Christianity's national influence, and God, Hungarian law does just the opposite.

    The Communists are tossing away their masks now. An Illinois Senate committee, in a party-line vote, has approved restrictions on semiautomatic assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips. Obama has apparently said he will move quickly on a new ASB and some kind of Amnesty for illegals. I always think of the 1950’s. I wasn't alive then so I can only study history. Everything that was considered right in the 1950’s is wrong now. That’s how Obama sees America. Everything white, male, Christian, patriotic or heterosexual is inherently and irredeemably EVIL.

    Breitbart's Big Hollywood / The Associated Press ^ | January 2, 2013 | Michael Rubinkam
    ALLENTOWN, Pa.-The new movie "Promised Land" digs into the fierce national debate over fracking, the technique that's generated a boom in U.S. natural gas production while also stoking controversy over its possible impact on the environment and human health. Written by and starring Matt Damon and John Krasinski, the film comes at an opportune time for a big-screen exploration of the issues surrounding the shale gas revolution, with cheap natural gas transforming the nation's energy landscape and "fracking" now a household word. But viewers shouldn't necessarily expect a realistic treatment of drilling and fracking. It's not that kind of film...

    “But resist we much… we must… and we will much… about… that… be committed.”That was Al Sharpton’s eloquence-challenged statement against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s campaign to get a grip on outrageous union costs to the state’s economy. For some reason, that unfortunate stumble has been echoing in my head lately, even though it has been almost a year and half since Sharpton said it. Resist, we much! What else can we do at this point but resist? It is astonishing to watch your country fall. It is a gut-twisting, sickening thing to see craven cowards (redundant, perhaps, but true) in...

    Gun Watch ^ | 3 January, 2013 | Dean Weingarten
    When the subject is gun control, those who demand more for the United States always point to Europe. Europe, they say, has more gun control than the United States, and lower murder rates. Europe, of course, is a diverse place. Some places have lots of guns and low murder rates. Some places have few guns and higher murder rates. The reason that many developed European countries have murder rates much lower than the United States is not guns or gun control. It is demographics. In 2006 the Department of Justice issued a report on violent felons in large urban counties....

    To listen to all the moaning out of the House of Representatives yesterday, you could be forgiven for thinking that the Republicans are losing the fiscal battle in Washington. Actually, they're winning. To see this, you just need to step back and look at the tax deal and the country's fiscal trends from a broader perspective. Yesterday, the American government voted to extend almost all of the Bush Tax Cuts permanently. Not temporarily, as a stimulus measure. Permanently. Ever since the Bush Tax Cuts were first enacted in 2001--temporarily, as a stimulus measure--one goal of the Republican party has been...

    As the edge of the fiscal cliff approaches and then recedes, like an imagined desert isle appearing and disappearing admit the waves, the process that has brought America into the tyranny of debt goes on. The national debt, like our annual deficits, is a symptom of the true problem. Irresponsible behavior is a symptom of irresponsible thinking. Bad choices come from the failure to understand consequences. Power is not just an aphrodisiac, it numbs one to the understanding that there even are consequences. The centers of people in a nation are the last to feel the cold and their decisions...

    One good rule of thumb to bear in mind is that, in fast-moving news events, much of what the media report at the beginning is going to be erroneous, false, or fabricated outright. First, that's how they roll: people who go into the media want to change the world, and have no overarching moral structure or ethical framework beyond Marxian utilitarianism. Second, people go in the media because they like telling stories, and stories are best with a beginning, middle and end, and a good guy in a white hat and a bad guy in a black one: so that's...

    California has indeed become The Golden State for Mexican drug cartels which have solidified their hold over the narco trade by eliminating the middle man to deal directly with street gangs in the distribution chain as reported by Adam Housley for Fox News. Of course, it's hard to place the full blame on law enforcement for failing to push back the drug cartels. After all, the border remains unsecure, many cities provide sanctuary to illegal immigrants among whom the narco traffickers hide, the entertainment industry glorifies drug culture and the criminal underworld, and so-called medical marijuana makes a mockery of...

    In the media and Administration’s push to use the recent school shooting to advance their political agenda, they are careful to couch their words in vague emotionalism and obscure terms that avoid any facts or rational discussion. The rifles that they are most keen on banning are exactly those firearms that are least used in murders, but the most protected by the Constitution. Modern sport utility rifles, which are included in the vague term “assault weapons", are used so seldom for murder that many states do not see a single case in a year. In 2010, there were 12,996 murders....

    Barack Obama is a clueless President. The commander in chief who is supposed to defend the nation insists that there is no evidence of drug cartel spillover violence from Mexico into America, and yet police in New Mexico are finding an increasing number of slain bodies which they attribute to the narco traffickers as reported by Adam Camp for KOB: "the recent bloodshed has some people in Albuquerque concerned for their own safety." Of course, now that the Democrats want to ban so-called assault rifles, good citizens along the southwest border will have no protection against the drug cartels.

    In a brilliant act of political satire, someone has created a petition to the white house here to create a gun free zone around the President and Vice President. All guns would be eliminated there, and the Secret Service would not have any. If it is good enough for our children, It is good enough for the president, the logic goes. I am constantly amazed that people are perfectly comfortable around someone with a gun, if the person is wearing a uniform. Remove the uniform, and the same people become very uncomfortable.

    It took some 22 hours for American help to arrive in Benghazi after all the t's had been crossed and the i's had been dotted, and the body of America's ambassador to Libya had been dragged through the streets by "rescuers" stopping along the way to pose for cell phone pictures with his corpse. By way of comparison it takes about 16 hours for a boatload of Libyan illegal immigrants to row to the Italian island of Lampedusa. Support for the Americans under fire in Libya would have arrived sooner if a few former members of the Harvard Rowing Team...
  • Insanity Is Unsustainable.

    "Moonbats enjoy barking self-righteously about sustainability. Yet they seem to consider this sustainable: In 11 different U.S. states, the number of government dependents exceeds the number of private sector workers..... ... In California, there are 139 “takers” for every 100 private sector workers. … If you can believe it, entitlements accounted for 62 percent of all federal spending in fiscal year 2012...... Entitlement spending is worse than waste. A dollar spent on green energy is more or less the same as a dollar used as fireplace kindling. But a dollar spent on welfare makes America $1 weaker by strengthening government...

    The club and the knife were most likely the first weapons developed in human history. Their primary purpose was to kill animals to provide food. By attaching a knife to a pole, as in either a spear or an arrow, the effectiveness of the knife can be extended. Then, some humans learned that they could use these weapons to take property from other humans. The most valuable and sacred property is life itself and once that has been taken, all other forms of property become available to the attacker. If one human with ill intent is armed and another is...

  • Edmund Burke on Manners

    12/29/2012 5:03:02 AM PST · by don-o · 48 replies
    It took Edmund Burke a very little time to decide that French Revolutionary philosophy posed a massive threat to civilization and social stability throughout Europe. By the end of his life, eight years after the storming of the Bastille, his fears of Jacobin contagion had led him to ask for a secret grave, removed from his family sepulchre and hidden from those-the English Jacobins-who would plunder the lead from tombs for bullets to assassinate the living. In 1796 he wrote: “...out of the tomb of the murdered monarchy in France has arisen a vast, tremendous, unformed spectre, in a far...

    CASHING IN ON THE DEAD The left's plan has always been very simple. Find a grievance or create a crisis, in whatever order, and then cash in on it. Whether it's the economy or the murder of children, the left's response to any tragedy is to find a way to shamelessly try and cash in. Recently a woman was charged with falsely raising money by claiming to be setting up a fund for some of the dead children of Newtown. This is the sort of thing that's illegal if you're an ordinary person, but perfectly acceptable if you happen...
