    When Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, author of The Gulag Archipelago, gave in his Noble Lecture the credo, “Let the lie come into the world. Let it even triumph. But not through me,” that was based. Not participating in transparent lies or mass delusion is based. Doing so against the madness of the following crowd is based. Nearly everything that it means to be based is either contained within or predicated upon this one trait of character. Solzhenitsyn wrote those words as a result of his observations living in what may have been the most brutal tyranny of human history: Stalin’s USSR. That...

    FULL TITLE: Tennessee sheriff's detective who is also a pastor calls for government executions of LGBT people in sermon A detective in Tennessee has sparked outrage by delivering a church sermon calling for the government to execute LGBT people. Knox County Sheriff's Detective Grayson Fritts made the remarks on Sunday while preaching at the All Scripture Baptist Church in Knoxville, where he is a pastor. 'If you do not hate the homosexual then you are in violation and God's wrath will be upon you,' Fritts said. 'I don't think that the government is going to be putting them to death...
  • Czech politicians want to ban Islam completely as it ‘colonises society’

    12/12/2018 6:10:41 PM PST · by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis · 39 replies
    Political leaders in Czech Republic have previously condemned Islam in strong terms. Now, politicians in the Czech Parliament are discussing the complete ban of the religion. If someone calls for the killing of infidels and Jews, then it is not a religion of peace, says MP Jiri Kobza. He and his party Freedom and Direct Democracy, which is one of the larger in parliament, believe Islam is not just a religion but also a violent ideology that should be banned. [snip] He points out that Muslims neither want nor will integrate into non-Muslim societies. It is not migration – it...

    Oh, the horror!  He referred to himself with the "N" word. (CNN)At a rally in Houston Monday night for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, President Donald Trump said this: "A globalist is a person that wants the globe to do well, frankly, not caring about our country so much. And you know what? We can't have that. You know, they have a word. It sort of became old-fashioned. It's called a nationalist. And I say, really, we're not supposed to use that word. You know what I am? I'm a nationalist, OK? I'm a nationalist. "Nationalist. Nothing -- use that word. Use...

Now, those who try to visit The Alex Jones Channel on YouTube will be greeted by a note saying the account "has been terminated for violating YouTube's Community Guidelines."

  • Rumor: Windows 10 to become a cloud based OS

    Microsoft Windows 10 might become a cloud based operating system (OS) according to a leaked road-map. The road-map shows that Microsoft will no longer release service packs but instead will release major updates every year which also increases the version number of the OS. The next major improvement should be Windows 9, this should bring back the Aero interface in a new form. This should also be a version in which Microsoft will merge its ARM CPU based Windows RT platform with Windows Phone. This version of Windows could also be the last version of Windows as we know it....

    Stand With Arizona ^ | 10-24-2012 | John Hill
    Here they come again. California unions are once again meddling in Arizona politics on behalf of illegal aliens, and against the interests of their own American workers. The deceptively-named "Campaign For Arizona’s Future" - which was funded by the national mega-labor unions AFL-CIO and UNITE HERE is spending millions to try and defeat Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The group, which calls its campaign "Adios Arpaio", is mostly comprised of the same Los Angeles-based activists which protested in 2010 after the passage of S.B. 1070. They claim to have registered over 36,000 - mostly Hispanics - in Maricopa County, AZ to...

    Down in Bernard Malin's basement is a softly thrumming metal box that turns natural gas into hot water and generates $600 to $800 worth of electricity a year - a bonus byproduct of heating his home. "It's like printing money," says Mr. Malin, the first person in Massachusetts - perhaps in the nation - to own a residential "micro combined-heat-and-power" system, also known as micro-CHP. But he's not likely to be the last. Since Malin changed his home heating system to micro-CHP in February, 18 other families in the Boston area also have adopted the technology, which squeezes about 90...

    WASHINGTON - Investigators have uncovered no signs of U.S.-based terrorists linked to a plot to blow up airliners headed to the United States, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Friday. "Currently, we do not have evidence that there was, as part of this plot, any plan to initiate activity inside the United States or that the plotting was done in the United States," Chertoff said, a day after British authorities announced the arrests of two dozen suspects. The arrests led the Bush administration to put the U.S. on its highest threat alert for flights headed to the United States from...

    A Chicago man arrested last month and charged with illegal possession of a weapon has been identified by federal prosecutors as a former member of an alleged group of aspiring terrorists based in Miami. In court documents filed Thursday, prosecutors identified the man as Charles Stewart or "Sultan Khan Bey," and said he apparently belonged to an organization called the Moorish National Republic, for which he was trying to recruit members. Stewart has not been charged in the terrorism case. The group in Miami was arrested June 22. Six men are accused of seeking to support what they thought was...

    SAN DIEGO - A federal grand jury on Tuesday indicted the head of a worldwide evangelical movement on charges of income tax evasion. Morris Cerullo, president of Morris Cerullo World Evangelism, misstated his income by $550,000 between 1998 and 2000, according to the indictment. Cerullo was charged with three counts of filing false tax returns, each of which carries a maximum penalty of three years in prison and a $100,000 penalty. Arrangements were being made for Cerullo's surrender, said Assistant U.S. Attorney George Hardy. Cerullo, an evangelist known for his cable network and worldwide crusades, could not be reached for...

    SACRAMENTO -- Senate Democrats plan to announce today their own reform plan for redistricting, which would retain their political control of the process of drawing legislative and congressional district boundaries. According to a copy of the proposal obtained by the Daily News, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's plan to transfer the Legislature's redistricting power to a nonpartisan panel of retired judges would be scrapped. That authority would instead be given to a commission of seven political appointees, four of whom would be chosen by legislative leaders. Republican leaders said the administration was unlikely to accept the plan but acknowledged it could be...

Pointed the overhead projector out the window instead of at the screen. 4. Taught us the difference between vertical and horizontal. 5. Took a little bit too long to reduce 36/108 to 4/12, and just as long to reduce that to 1/3. 6. Made sure that we were fully aware that Moses...

    VALE, Ore. - Eight Oregon-based firefighters were killed Sunday when their returning van collided with a truck on a remote highway west of this Eastern Oregon town, Malheur County Sheriff Andy Bentz said. He said all were under the age of 23 and worked for First Strike Environmental, a Roseburg-based contract firefighting company. Flags at Seattle fire stations were flying at half staff on Monday in honor of the eight fallen firefighters. Fire coordinators said the van was coming back from the South Fork fire, burning since Aug. 10 on the Boise National Forest about 25 miles northeast of the...
