    BRUCEVILLE, Texas -- A normally quiet country road in Bruceville, south of Waco, bustled with bus traffic for weeks this spring as between 1,000 and 2,000 children were trucked in from the border. The kids, officially known as unaccompanied alien children, were among thousands swamping the border - without their parents - from Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico.

    There is no more important item on the Obama Regime to-do list than to convince Americans that Islamic terrorists are not the nation’s most dangerous and implacable foes. “We must concern ourselves with a different type of threat,” said A.G. Eric Holder as he announced the return of the Clinton era Domestic Terror Executive Committee. And that threat will not come from Muslim jihadists. Rather, Holder warned that Americans must be prepared for “…the continued danger we face from individuals within our own borders.” The Committee to be reconstituted by the Obama Regime was put in business by the Clinton...

    For the past few years we have watched Barack Obama try to put guns in the hands of government officials who would willingly turn them on other Americans. Many of us worried that he had succeeded. Saturday we learned that so far he has failed in this effort. On Saturday, freedom won a great victory over the oppressive machine the American government has become. Standing shoulder to shoulder a determined band of American patriots turned on the heavily armed thugs of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and shouted “No!” When the noise subsided and the dust settled the BLM...

    Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins fears the dispute at Cliven Bundy’s ranch that has drawn protesters from across state lines might turn violent. So when Collins talked this week with a county commissioner in Utah who said others are coming so Southern Nevada to support the Bundys, he did what he usually does: He spoke his opinion without mincing words or worrying if he offended someone. Those comments are now making the rounds on social media and have attracted criticism from people ranging from Utah ranchers to his colleagues on the County Commission. It started when Darin Bushman, a Piute...

    Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval on Tuesday blasted the Bureau of Land Management for its "offensive" conduct in a bitter dispute with a farmer whose cattle graze on federal land — including the bureau’s designation of a "First Amendment area" where people can protest. In a scalding statement, Sandoval jumped squarely into the middle of a 20-year-old feud between farmer Cliven Bundy and the BLM — focusing his wrath specifically on a penned-in area that the federal agency considers the only place where people can speak freely. "Most disturbing to me is the BLM's establishment of a 'First Amendment area' that...

The 67-year-old veteran rancher, who has compared the situation to similar confrontations with government officials in Ruby Ridge and Waco, Texas, told TheBlaze that his family...

Zimmerman had a right to a fair trial and got one. Both were entitled to fair treatment by the press. Neither got it. Martin was and still is portrayed as a completely innocent teenager who was assaulted and murdered by Zimmerman for nothing more than racist reasons — a sentiment that has spurred protests in more than a hundred cities. Meanwhile, Zimmerman was and still is portrayed as the vigilante, race-motivated killer of a boy doing nothing...

    Mohandas Gandhi, the greatest pacifist of the 20th century, is widely quoted as having said, “Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look back upon the Act depriving the whole nation of arms as the blackest.” Gun controllers point to incidents such as the Ruby Ridge and Waco massacres to illustrate how violent gun owners can be, rather than acknowledging that gun control itself means violent confrontation. At trial, the jury acquitted the Davidians of all murder charges, although it convicted five of aiding and abetting the voluntary manslaughter of federal agents. It is telling...

    The decision to keep U.S. personnel in Benghazi with substandard security was made at the highest levels of the State Department by officials who have so far escaped blame over the Sept. 11 attack, according to a review of recent congressional testimony and internal State Department memos by Fox News. Nine months before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, State Department Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy signed off on an internal memo that green-lighted the Benghazi operation. The December 2011 memo from Jeffrey Feltman -- then-Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs (NEA) -- pledged "to...

He perpetuated a war against the “enemies” he himself created. His propagandists had the Germans believing they were under...

Survivors and others who see the events as an unwarranted government intrusion into personal and religious freedoms are to attend the service Friday at a Waco museum. Federal agents raided the compound Feb. 28, 1993, trying to arrest sect leader David Koresh for stockpiling illegal weapons. But the group had been tipped off about the raid and a shootout ensued. Four agents and six Davidians...

Authorities are trying to contain their speculation for fear of causing a panic, but the official told The Post the cause of the blast is "suspicious." Authorities suspect the blast was set off by a truck or rail car holding a large quantity of ammonia that somehow caught fire or blew up. Ammonia, under certain conditions, can become combustible or explosive. "It's 50-50," the source said. "Some sort of explosion caused the ammonia truck/rail car...

The resulting siege ended more than seven weeks later, on April 19, but not before claiming the lives of 80 men, women and children -- many burned to death in the final inferno that destroyed the compound.

    Since its modern mutation in 1968 (via the “Gun Control Act of 1968), and with an infusion of power to it in 1972 by Treasury Department Order No. 120-1, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) has amassed a truly sordid record of “gun control.” Although it’s website somewhat outlandishly claims a history going back to 1789, BATFE’s modern roots go to its failed attempts at the enforcement of Prohibition (another stupid idea from the federal government). There’s hardly anything as pathetic as a bloated government agency, in search of a mission. So the “BAT” got their...

    Yes, I have been watching this closely but it feels like the fit is hitting the shan on this - finally. Obama and Holder are complicit in murder and are engaging in outright treason just within the matrix of Gunwalker alone. Here is a link to a great piece at Pajamas Media that sums it all up - and read the comment thread which is every bit as informative as the article itself. Click Here for article and comment thread. Bottom line: Gunwalker never, ever had ANYTHING to do with drug enforcement or stopping the cartels. NOTHING. The reason that...

Shantaniqua Nykole Scott, 18, of Waco was convicted Thursday of injury to a child. She previously told authorities that she couldn't handle the stress of being a single, unemployed mom and wanted the 4-month-old "out of my life."

    In February, 1993, a gun battle erupted outside Waco, Texas, as federal agents attempted to search the communal residence of a religion known as the "Branch Davidians." The battle, and the following siege, was the greatest law enforcement debacle in American history, costing nearly a hundred lives. After a criminal trial, two Cabinet-level studies, and three sets of Congressional hearings, the truth appeared to be firmly settled. A cult led by a madman had shot at federal agents and had then set themselves aflame. The issue was settled. Then in 1999, the Waco issue exploded, with proof that the Federal...

    I suggest that before you read this post, you read the previous one on the Waco coverup and David Hardy's book "This Is Not An Assault." In fact, the post on Waco was suggested to both me and David Codrea by someone who wishes to be referred to as "an anonymous federal employee." His caution below underscores the Waco coverup lesson, as he commented in the preface email to us: "The reason is that the Congress makes decisions based on politics, not facts." Here is his analysis -- I have developed a sense that both sides (Congress and the Executive...

    Robert Slayton, claiming to be a Professor of History at Chapman University, holds forth at the HuffPo on the subject of Gun Rights and Libya The basic premise is that because of all the guns in civilian hands, the citizenry could always launch an armed rebellion and topple the government, if they felt it was justified. Knowing this, officials in Washington always keep one eye alert to this possibility, restraining their worst impulses. This notion, that anyone can lead a successful armed insurgency to topple a much greater force, was immortalized in the 1984 movie, Red Dawn, in which a...

    PARIS (AP) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday that the U.S. will bring "unique capabilities to bear" in Libya as a global coalition began enforcing a U.N.-authorized no-fly zone to protect civilians from Moammar Gadhafi's forces. The world will not "sit idly by," she said at a news conference, amid fears that Gadhafi will commit "unspeakable atrocities" against his people.
