  • The nightmare that woke me [false flag?]

    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...

    American Rattlesnake ^ | January 4, 2013 | Gerard Perry
    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...
  • Where The Jobs Are: "55 And Older"

    Zero Hedge ^ | 01/04/2013 | Tyler Durden
    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 -...

Well, here you go: 13 reasons you might have in your head about why you're not as successful as you should be. #1 Reason You’re Not As Successful As You Should Be – Laziness I don’t think there’s an easy way to put this.

  • 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.

    At a Brady Center event to "Prevent Gun Violence by Jodie Foster Fans from Accidentally Hitting White House Press Secretaries in the Head" the Brady Center Legal Action Project Director asked retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens whether having a right to a cell phone might be a more universal form of self-defense than gun ownership. "Maybe you have some kind of constitutional right to have a cell phone with a predialed 911 number at your bedside, and that might provide you with a little better protection than a gun, which you’re not used to using," Justice Stevens mumbled....

    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. The more of these categories something falls under the more...
  • Hollywood's 'Promised Land' 'Not Very Accurate'

    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...

    Mediaite ^ | January 2, 2013 | Anjali Sareen
    A garment maker that specializes in bullet-proof goods for adults is planning to manufacture and sell a line of bullet-proof clothes exclusively for children, in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Miguel Caballero has been in the garment business in Bogota, Colombia for 22 years, but has never been able to break through the U.S. market. He hopes his new line of kid’s clothes will change that. Caballero plans to sell T-shirts, vests, and combination backpack-vests. He says the inspiration for his new business model was when he started to receive requests from worried parents after...
  • European Murder Rates Compared to the United States: Demographics vs Guns

    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....

    Exclusive: Pamela Geller traces death of the republic to 2 short words The United States of America was created as an independent nation whose founding ideal was the principle of individual rights. Freedom. Ayn Rand said that “freedom, in a political context, means freedom from government coercion.” America was the first moral government based on individual rights, the nation of the Enlightenment. In this age of Obama, that ideal has been tossed aside for … “free stuff.” I have, for some time, struggled with the new reality: America void of her reason, existing without the reason for her existence, her...

    Business Insider ^ | 01/02/2013 | Henry Blodget
    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...

    Sultan Knish ^ | Jan 1, 2013 | Daniel Greenfield
    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...

    The constant refrain that we've heard every minute of every day since Newtown from the gun prohibitionists, the politicians, and the mainstream media is that we must do something, we must "demand a plan", we must pass a law. Josh Felker of LoneStar Handgun in Schertz, Texas decided to do something but it isn't what the gun prohibitionists and their political and media allies are advocating. Mr. Felker offered 400 slots in his Texas CHL classes free to teachers in Texas. The teachers in Texas took him up on the offer and all were booked within 24 hours. From the...
