  • Racism, Repression and Resistance…Ferguson October Weekend of Resistance

    The passion, emerging power of Black youth fuel demands for justice.ST. LOUIS, Mo. (FinalCall.com) – A moment borne out of angry Black youth facing heavily armed police officers, snarling police dogs, tear gas, rubber bullets, pepper spray and armored military personnel carriers in the streets continues to grow into a movement. That moment has captured some of America’s attention and exposed the country’s oppressive policing, racial failures and national shame to the world. “Missouri is the new Mississippi,” said Tef Poe, a young activist and hip hop artist from St. Louis. Conditions and protests over two months in the streets...

    This twitter post showed Zehat Bibeau with what appears to be a Winchester lever action rifle.    At first, it was unclear if this were the same firearm that he used to shoot Cpl. Cirillo.   The BBC quickly came up with an identification of the firearm used - a Winchester lever action shotgun!  From the BBC: He said police were trying to piece together how Zehaf-Bibeau acquired a Winchester lever-action shotgun, as he was banned from owning firearms due to his criminal convictions.  Then the Ottowa Sun took a shot at the subject.  From the Ottowa Sun: Police still don't...

    What are we to do with this latest school shooting tragedy?  Unlike the killings in Oklahoma City and Ottawa, Canada, this was no terrorist or self-proclaimed warrior carrying out a religious fatwa.  Jaylen Fryberg was a 14-year-old boy.  He could be my son, or anyone’s.  This is really a tragedy, every bit as much as the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary almost two years ago.  Except that by all accounts, Jaylen Fryberg was no mentally ill recluse.  He was an outgoing, smart, athletic boy who was named freshman homecoming king at his school. There are no words to erase the...

    The villains were the jerks who pushed Bristol Palin and the members of the media, like Carol Costello, who wear their liberal bias as a badge of honor Since she burst on the national scene in 2008, the national media has enjoyed poking fun and mischaracterizing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family. The main reason for their obsession is that Palin is an unabashed conservative who is articulate and popular with millions of Americans. From the reporting about her supposed shopping spree during the 2008 race for Vice President to the continuing rumors about her marriage, the media...

    The ends justify the means, and the rule of law is sacrificed in the name of social justice Throughout most of the 19th and 20th centuries Socialism had a fairly precise definition, a somewhat clear program, and a generally agreed-upon goal. The definition of Socialism was some variant of Karl Marx’s well known statement, “From each according to the ability to each according to their need.” Socialism’s program was the nationalization of all means of production, exchange, and distribution. Socialism’s goal was the use of all three in a comprehensive plan to bring about some chimera of social justice. There...

    S&W 5946 I would give long odds that it was a Smith and Wesson 5946 in 9mm.   They come with 15 round magazines.   I doubt that the RCMP used the politically correct 10 rounders. The 3953, above, is also issued, but it is more likely he had the 5946. The picture is from a discussion of the RCMP pistols on defensivecarry.com. Another source confirms that the Smith is the choice of the RCMP.  From Silvercore Firerams Training, BC(pdf): Smith & Wesson 5946 - The Side Arm of the RCMP Manufactured 1990 - 1999 A double-action-only (DAO) variant...

In their naked attempt to railroad and lynch a white police officer, Darren Wilson, they used — abused, that is — the grotesque power of their offices to foment terrible race riots in the faraway city of Ferguson. Now it’s all blowing up in their faces. That is, in the legal and political senses, just as the exact same tactics blew up in their faces last year in the George Zimmerman trial.

    Despite all talks of austerity, £1,521.2 billion was the UK’s public debt at the end of the financial year 2013/14, as much as – be prepared for this, but probably you already are - 87.8% of GDP. The Office for National Statistics, the source of these data, in a recent release also informs that this debt represented an increase of £100.6 billion compared to the end of 2012/13. Still according to the ONS, government borrowing, excluding the effects of bank bail-outs, was £11.8 billion in September 2014, £1.6 billion higher than September 2013.

    I believe the biggest sources of voter fraud are one, poll workers, and two, the automated voting machines now utilized across America. Yes, as we all know, poll workers are human and vote too. Naturally in this supercharged era of divisive politics a number of these individuals are bound to be highly partisan. If some of these officials choose to give illegal immigrants (non-citizens) ballots, or they turn a blind eye as a fellow party members vote countless times - such as what recently happened in Arizona - who is going to stop them?

    Thanks to the bumbling of Barack Obama, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, “Presby” as it is known locally has the sad distinction of being the first American hospital to have a patient die of Ebola. Not surprisingly Obama will never acknowledge his guilt or apologize to the hospital staff – he only apologizes to oil rich Muslims. The delivery of Thomas Duncan, an Ebola infected West African to the Presby Emergency Room, has started a chain reaction that is destroying the hospital, the lives of the people who work there and the ability of local residents to receive vital health...

    It is difficult to measure the positive effects of one man's courage in a desperate situation.   In this event, the home was invaded by three armed men.   One man used a pretense of asking for water to get the door unlocked; then all three forced their way inside.  Two wore masks.    All three were armed with guns, make and model unknown. They demanded that the homeowner, 67-year-old grandfather, Kenneth Byrd, his wife, 65-year-old Judy, and their 19-year-old granddaughter open a safe.  All three members of the Byrd family were badly beaten.  Then they started to rape the granddaughter,...

He had travelled – taking the subway train and then the bus – to arrive in one of the shanty-towns, which Argentines call villas miserias – misery villages. He had picked his way down crooked and chaotic alleyways, criss-crossed with water pipes and dangling electricity cables, along which open sewers ran as malodorous streams when the rain came. There, amid ramshackle houses of crudely- cemented terracotta breezeblock, he fell into conversation with the middle-aged...

Conservatives must choose Revolution – and now. A pivotal mid-term election is upon us. No matter the outcome, however, the Republican Establishment will rule. And the Republican Establishment is entirely hostile to Republican Conservatives. Today’s Establishment Republicans have grown even more odious than they were during the Reagan and Goldwater eras.

    Killers and sexual predators let loose in America In a revelation that will surprise almost no one at this point, the Obama administration has been caught in another lie. Records obtained by USA Today contradict the administration’s assertions the 2,228 people freed from immigration jails in 2013 only included those with minor criminal records. Instead, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials released a number of illegal aliens facing serious criminal charges that include “kidnapping, sexual assault, drug trafficking and homicide,” the paper reports. Despite last year’s furor surrounding the release, the administration continued to insist that only “low-risk offenders who...

    Too bad part of Trudeau’s being “authentic” and “being yourself” includes his hanging out at Mosques. Any day now Prime Minister Stephen Harper will be blamed by the lib-left and their running dog media hacks for this week’s terrorist attacks in Ottawa and Quebec. That’s because the lib-left, who always throw politics rather than effective stopgap measures at Islamic terrorism—which they refuse even to name—will move quickly to blame the terrorist attacks on Canada’s participation in the current combat mission in Iraq. The lib-left will do this even though there is documented proof on the books that terrorists in droves...

  • Myth Of The Low Information Voter

    10/24/2014 5:08:00 AM PDT · by LeoMcNeil · 39 replies
    There seems to be on the right an insistence that low information voters are destroying the country. This is promulgated by conservative media figures, particularly Rush Limbaugh who appears to have coined the phrase. There is plenty of reason to believe a lot of Americans are completely checked out of day to day political events. The number of people who can’t name the Vice President, Speaker of the House or any member of the Supreme Court is appalling. Equally as appalling is the inability of many Americans to name their Congressman, one Senator from their state or their state’s Governor....

    Every one of the 50 states has some kind of firearms preemption law.   This makes perfect sense, as otherwise each town, county, and local government could enact a local ordinance to invalidate your right to keep and bear arms.   You could easily be placed in jail for an inadvertent violation of an ordiance that you never knew existed, just because you crossed an invisible political boundary. Pennsylvania has such a law, and it is a well thought out example.  There is only one problem; the means to enforce it is weak.   To prevent local governments form flouting the rule...

    Apparently, the usual sober and fraught political commentary that often accompanies episodes of physical violence directed toward women disappears when the subject of that violence is a Palin. The political press had a hearty chuckle at the expense of the Palins when it first broke that the former first family of Alaska was involved in an alcohol-fueled brawl. The “thrilla in Wasilla,” some called it. One might, however, have expected the laughter to die down after local police released audio of Bristol Palin who described through hysterical tears how she had been assaulted, dragged through the grass, and robbed.

    As the final furlongs of the 2014 midterm election season approach, it is important that as conservatives we reflect upon not simply on polling data and the issues that drive individual races, but precisely what drives our political activism. While establishment Republicans and Tea Party enthusiasts alike fully recognize the failings and inadequacies of the GOP, we need fully recognize that our goals of a more perfect Union and the future of our children depends on electing men and women who share and reflect our values to the US Senate, Governors mansions and (possibly of even greater importance) state legislature...

    To change Islam, we would have to understand why its ugliness still speaks to Muslims Every few years the debate over reforming Islam bubbles up from the depths of a culture that largely censors any suggestion that Islam needs reforming. But Islam does not exist apart from Muslims. It is not an abstract entity that can be changed without changing its followers. And if Islam has not changed, that is because Muslims do not want it to. Mohammed and key figures in Islam provided a template, but that template would not endure if it did not fit the worldview of...

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.

Islam is not a race. “Viral NYPD Racial Profiling Video Was Staged,” The Smoking Gun, October 21, 2014: OCTOBER 21–In a cynical and duplicitous attempt to...

    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...
  • NUS Rejects Anti-ISIS Motion as "Islamophobic"

    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...

    Twitter is "the source of all evil and devastation", the mufti saidTwitter is nothing more than "a source of lies" and evil, Saudi Arabia's top Muslim cleric said, in comments that sparked lively debate Tuesday on the microblogging site. "If it were used correctly, it could be of real benefit, but unfortunately it's exploited for trivial matters," Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh said on his "Fatwa" television show broadcast late Monday. ......... The social media platform is popular among both men and women in ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia, where some supported the mufti's views but many others objected. "This is why I...

    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)...
