  • Complying with Tyranny on Masks will bring Tyranny not Less

    ...Previously polite, law-abiding citizens must unmask themselves and let their voices be heard. Unlike their oppressive opposition, they have little interest in vilifying those who choose to wear a mask for their own reasons. In the 1982 film “Gandhi,” Ben Kingsley portrayed Gandhi as saying, “100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.” It’s time to stop cooperating.

  • Mandatory Masks Aren’t About Safety, They’re About Social Control

    The Federalist ^ | 27 May 20 | Molly McCann
    On May 26, Virginia’s Gov. Ralph Northam announced that wearing masks outside one’s home will be mandatory effective May 29. He first hinted he might issue a masking order a week ago, likely to test the water. A new refrain in public discourse is growing in volume by the day: “Things will never be the same.” The certainty with which we are assured of this pre-determined future is perplexing. Whether or not “things” will ever be the same is not at all clear, but that some people hope things will never be the same is certain. To those looking to...

    Freddie Gray case: Charges against three remaining officers dropped Prosecutors dropped all remaining charges against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray in a downtown courtroom on Wednesday morning, concluding one of the most high-profile criminal cases in Baltimore history. The startling move was an apparent acknowledgement of the unlikelihood of a conviction following the acquittals of three other officers on similar and more serious charges by Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams, who was expected to preside over the remaining trials as well. It also means the office of Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J....

    Were you aware of this law? DICK ACT of 1902 - CAN'T BE REPEALED (GUN CONTROL FORBIDDEN) - Protection Against Tyrannical Government It would appear that the administration is counting on the fact that the American Citizens don't know this, their rights and the constitution. Don't prove them right. The Dick Act of 1902 also known as the Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R. 11654, of June 28, 1902 invalidates all so-called gun-control laws. It also divides the militia into three distinct and separate entities. **SPREAD THIS TO EVERYONE ** The three classes H.R. 11654 provides for are the organized militia,...

    Honduras called on the U.S. to exercise “respect and consideration” when dealing with undocumented Honduran migrants Tuesday, announcing that the government is preparing to receive deported migrants, including children, over the coming days. President Juan Orlando Hernandez stressed that Hondurans travelling to the U.S. in search of work “give back to the economy” while they live there, calling on immigration authorities to respect Hondurans’ rights. Local authorities are expecting the wave of returnees to continue over the coming days, including 16 mothers and 21 minors set to be deported back to Honduras Wednesday. The deportations come as part of a...

    As millions of Americans brace for tax season, the Internal Revenue Service is requesting a $2 billion boost to its budget and 9,000 new employees as it prepares to enforce Obamacare’s tax provisions. President Obama released his $4 trillion budget proposal for fiscal year 2016 this week, which includes $13.9 billion for the Internal Revenue Service. The agency asked Congress for close to $2 billion more for operations than last year—a 16 percent increase. The billions of dollars will help the agency bolster its staff by adding more than 9,280 full-time employees. The proposed jump in employment at the IRS...

  • IRS scrutiny went beyond Tea Party, targeting of conservative groups broader than thought

    05/13/2013 6:39:43 AM PDT · by topher · 25 replies ^ | 5-13-2013
    An IRS campaign to apply additional scrutiny to conservative groups went beyond targeting "Tea Party" and "patriot" groups to include those focused on government spending, the Constitution and several other broad areas. The additional guidelines created by the agency were part of a timeline, obtained by Fox News, from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which is looking into the controversial IRS practice. IRS officials apologized Friday for the scrutiny, but new information suggests senior leaders were apprised of the effort as early as 2011 despite public denials from the top.
  • Schumer’s False Fire - His analogy is a dreadful one.

    National Review Online ^ | January 31, 2013 | Charles C. W. Cooke
    With a dreary predictability, Senator Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) shared with yesterday’s Senate hearing his “fire in a theater” argument for gun control. Schumer, as anyone who follows his exploits will be aware, is fond of this line. Adumbrating his opposition to the allegedly pernicious influence of Citizens United, the senator made the underlying point explicit: “I believe there ought to be limits because the First Amendment is not absolute. No amendment is absolute.” In an op-ed on December 23 of last year, he moved his attentions a little farther down the Bill of Rights: “While the First Amendment...

    Pressure is mounting for the release of an Afghan Red Cross worker who was arrested last summer for converting to Christianity. The worker, Said Musa, 46, who left Islam roughly eight years ago, was arrested in May. A father of six, he lost a leg to a land mine and was working to help other amputees when he was arrested. [Musa has been] threatened with death if he does not renounce his faith. "Since his arrest, Mr. Musa has experienced beatings, sexual assault and sleep deprivation.

    The American Revolution was over. The United States of America was finished. The Continental Army was all but finished in December 1776 as the British and their Hessian (German) mercenary allies settled in for a long winter rest. In those days, it was customary that armies rest and refit in the winter months in preparation for the campaign seasons of spring and summer. And the British were all about custom and tradition. No matter, thought the British. They saw little need to move directly against Washington's army and risk further casualties. The Continental Army was disintegrating. Unpaid, ill-equipped, cold, and...

    Oh, how I would love to wish you all a happy Independence Day. That's the name for this holiday, by the way, Americans. It's not just the Fourth of July. It's not just the day we shoot off Chinese-made fireworks. It's not just the day we barbecue burgers. It's not just the day we go to the beach. It's Independence Day – so named because on or about this date in 1776, a group of courageous men risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor for a dream of freedom and sweet autonomy from an imperial power.

    There will always be those who are easily seduced by the offer of wealth and unlimited power. But one of the lessons we can glean from an unflinching look at history and human nature is that power-lust inevitably trumps greed. The power to harm others – and to harm others without consequence - is irresistible to a profoundly evil subset of humanity. Real trouble begins when such people acquire power.  So here’s a bold assertion that many of you will dismiss out of hand: there are those in government - and those who seek control of your government -...

    In his election-night victory speech, Barack Obama said he would be a president for all Americans, not just those who voted for him. But as a candidate he didn't campaign with equal vigor for every vote. Instead, he and John McCain devoted more than 98% of their television ad spending and campaign events to just 15 states which together make up about a third of the U.S. population. Today, as the Electoral College votes are cast and counted state-by-state, we will be reminded why. It is the peculiar mechanics of that institution, designed for a different age, that leave us...
