  • Obama and the Depraved American Elite (vanity)

    The elite in America have been legally boxing in the American people. We have a lot of federal power hanging over our heads. The elite doesn't like that we can speak out against them. It doesn't like that we choose what we want to believe. It doesn't like that we can defend ourselves against them per the Second Amendment if it ever becomes necessary. When you have as much power over a society as Obama and America's depraved elite, it is easy to be cruel as it elicits feelings of superiority and enjoyment. Who would have thought the government would...

    Even before Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee on Tuesday, Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton was looking toward the general election and planning to use executive action “go further than Obama” on gun control. In fact, implementing more gun control is “at the top of her to-do list.”

    The popular gunshop NOVA Armory opened in Arlington, VA on March 26th.  The store was filled with customers, in spite of opposition from a small group of anti-rights activists.  The bullying activists were joined with several members of the local government who attempted to force the gunshop to close.  One landlord had already broken a lease under pressure from the local disarmists.  NOVA had warned the politicians that the would sue if the harrassment continued.  From NOVA Armory: March 4, 2016, ARLINGTON, VA — The gun shop planning to open in Arlington, Virginia this month has responded to a...

    Several activist groups who have received funds from the federal government helped organize the May Day anti-Trump demonstrations in Los Angeles. Most nonprofit groups are prohibited by law from engaging in partisan political activity. However, according to the Daily Caller, it's difficult to say if any of the groups violated the law. Whether they violated the law depends on their nonprofit classification. If the groups are classified 501(c)(3), they are allowed to participate in "voter education" activities. No doubt, the nonprofits involved in this demonstration would claim that's what they were doing. But they have nothing to worry about. Does...

    As a general principle no conversations have involved more varied opinions than discussions about the supposed “conservative” media and their seeming cognitive dissonance when it comes to issues surrounding Senator Ted Cruz. Some people think these voices were just hoodwinked by Cruz and now their ego won’t permit them to admit the falsehood. Others think the pundits are too close to the candidate to see the inherent issues and contradictions; some propose their punditry is connected to financial motives. Perhaps it’s a combination therein, but many people just can’t figure it out... All of those aforementioned voices know this fact....

    The secular reprobate mind is filled with violence, moral relativism and lawlessness designs and its actions have ravished this nation since the 60's beyond all recognition of what the founding fathers envisioned. Let us first look at the barbaric act of abortion. Since 1973 there has been 55 million abortions of our American children. May I say that NO gun has ever achieved that statistic not even all the combined arsenal of WW2! The abortion agenda of the Left is the holy grail of their godless ideology.

    BROWNSVILLE – The number of people crossing the border illegally is on the rise. The Border Patrol chief said the number of people coming across is consistent with the surge two years ago. Chief Patrol Agent and Commander of the South Texas Corridor Manuel Padilla Jr. insisted this time, his agents are better prepared and border security isn’t in jeopardy. However, some people don’t agree. More than 80,000 people crossed the border illegally since October. It includes more unaccompanied children and family members from Central America and Mexico. It’s about the same as during the immigration crisis of 2014.

    Donald Trump may be the only Republican presidential candidate who can realistically hit the magic 1,237 number for the majority of delegates, but according to a senior Republican National Committee official that does not mean he will become the GOP presidential nominee. "Even if Trump reaches the magic number of 1,237 the media and RNC are touting, that does not mean Trump is automatically the nominee," Haugland said. "The votes earned during the primary process are only estimates and are not legal convention votes. The only official votes to nominate a candidate are those that are cast from the convention...

    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials are moving ahead with a key part of the Clean Power Plan (CPP) despite the Supreme Court issuing a stay against the agency’s global warming plan in February. The EPA submitted a proposal to the White House for green energy subsidies for states that meet the federally mandated carbon dioxide reduction goals early. The Clean Energy Incentive Program would give “credit for power generated by new wind and solar projects in 2020 and 2021” and a “double credit for energy efficiency measures in low-income communities,” according to Politico’s Morning Energy.The move seems to violate the...

    Welcome to life in totalitarian America, where even going to the bathroom and identifying the sex of an adult have now become intensely political acts. Totalitarianism is about the politicization of everything, and once people’s careers can be destroyed by the New Bathroom Order if they publicly object to the once-bizarre idea of men in the ladies’ room–we’re there. Ask the now-unemployed Curt Schilling. Totalitarianism is about using force to gain political goals.

    Assembly Bill 2459, sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) would institute such draconian regulations on firearms vendors that most, perhaps all, would be driven out of business. This is okay by McCarty, though, because "it would draw a distinct line between the duly authorized and armed police and the outlaws who possess guns." "Let's say that all legitimate gun dealers shutdown," McCarty speculated. "There would be no legal way for a law-abiding citizen to obtain a firearm. The only available source would be an illegal street purchase. In one fell swoop, my bill would convert everyone with a gun...

So unless your religion also qualifies as a bona fide minority don’t expect much protection from the Bill of Rights any more.

As such, while Nazi racism was evil, Nazi environmentalism was good. This too was learned from Albert Speer Sr.

The Department of Energy (DOE) recently determined that portable air conditioners meet the criteria set under the Energy Policy Conservation Act (as amended) for efficiency mandates. Like all other efficiency regulations, mandated appliance standards removes choices from individuals and empowers Washington to override personal preferences. DOE concluded that the average household use of electricity for portable air conditioners exceeds the limit to trigger consideration for regulation. The energy-use threshold for DOE bureaucrats to begin inspecting and testing an appliance is low.

"Let's imagine that, 'horror of horrors,' the government defaults on this debt," Markey continued. "Who's hurt?

    For the federal government to demand more, and seize more, such as we are seeing regarding BLM land, is nothing less than tyranny. According to Article I, Section 8, aside from adding territory as spoils from war, the only way the federal government can own property is if they “purchase” it with the “consent” of the State legislature for the purpose of “needful buildings.” Much of the land west of the Mississippi River owned by the federal government was not obtained in either manner.

    This feature appears in the April ’16 issue of NRA America’s 1st Freedom, one of the official journals of the National Rifle Association. In an attack that is unprecedented in our lifetimes, the destruction of the Second Amendment-protected rights of all Americans has emerged as the centerpiece of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. If elected, she vows to make the Obama administration’s illegal, all-out war on our values and liberty look like amateur night. Embracing the kind of mass confiscations that disarmed Australians in the 1990s, Hillary intends to take down the NRA, calling us her number one “enemy.” Politico summed...

In the video, Chelsea Clinton tells a crowd that her mother, Hillary Clinton, is open to using executive action to reduce "crushing costs" of Obamacare. "...cap on out of pocket expenses. This was part of my mom's original plan back in '93 and '94, as well as premium costs. We can either do that directly or through tax credits. And, kind of figuring out whether she could do that through executive action, or she would need to do that through tax credits working with Congress....

    Somali 'refugee' influx continues unabated Obama sending 700 per month to U.S. cities despite admitted 'terror-recruitment problem' The Islamic State’s Cyber Army used an online cellphone app to post a “kill list” of names, addresses, phone numbers and other personal information on 36 police officers in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. The FBI said this week it is investigating the case but analysts say it’s obvious why ISIS chose to target the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. The area is home to America’s largest Somali refugee community and has been a hotbed of Islamic terrorist recruitment dating back to at least...

    The lawsuit was brought against Ferguson by the department after the city initially rejected some of the terms proposed in an agreement put forth to improve the city's police department and court practices, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. However, the Ferguson City Council finally approved the Justice proposal Tuesday, citing a letter from Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, as a reason why. In the letter, Gupta assured city officials that the projected costs of the proposal had been overstated.

    As a counter to poor performance by America's public schools, Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton proposed to set up a Department of Education "SWAT" Team that would be dispatched to crackdown on errant educators. "The problem with our system of public schools is that false doctrines and anti-government attitudes are allowed to exist without consequence," Clinton complained. "An ill-advised autonomy for teachers and local schools has served to shield purveyors of anti-social doctrines from the discipline needed to ensure proper inculcation of collective values. Under my plan the Secretary of Education will be empowered to send a special weapons and...

    Despite all three broadcast evening news shows running stories on ISIS on March 10, not one of them mentioned a report submitted that day to Secretary of State John Kerry documenting that ISIS’s persecution of Christians has reached the level of genocide. In fact, in all of 2016 so far, the topic of Christian persecution by ISIS hasn’t been mentioned even once. In all of 2015, the network evening newscasts devoted a mere 17 minutes to the topic of ISIS’s attacks against Christians out of a total 39 hours discussing terrorism. The breakdown by network is even worse: ABC’s World...
