    Offgrid Survival ^ | September 2022 | Taken from Breitbart
    According to the most recent estimates, over 4.9 million illegal aliens have entered the United States during President Biden’s first 18 months in office. But even more troubling is the criminal nature of these illegals and how certain governments seem to be using the border crisis as a defacto war on America. On Sunday, Breitbart obtained a report from the border patrol indicating that the government of Venezuela, led by Nicolás Maduro Moros, is releasing prisoners intentionally and sending them to the U.S. border. Among those released are people who have been convicted of murder, rape, and extortion. More...

    Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations are in decline. People are traveling, socializing and returning to workplaces in greater numbers. But a group of people are still keeping mostly to themselves and taking other measures to minimize infection risks. Compromised immune systems and the risks of long Covid are among reasons they say they are maintaining caution.

    While the controversy over the National Security Agency surveillance program has dominated the news recently, concern about the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations remains high and is inching up. Despite the large number of controversies engulfing official Washington, the number of people following the IRS scandal has actually increased in recent weeks.

    Chicago Sun-Times ^ | October 14, 2010 | Dave McKinney
    The last name of Green Party gubernatorial candidate Rich Whitney is misspelled as "Whitey" on electronic-voting machines in nearly two dozen wards -- about half in predominantly African-American areas -- and election officials said Wednesday the problem cannot be corrected by Election Day. The misspelling turned up on touch-screen machines in 23 wards overall. Whitney's name is spelled correctly on the machines' initial screens showing all of the candidates' names, but it is misspelled on review screens that later show a voter his or her choices, said Jim Allen, spokesman for the Chicago Board of Elections. "This is a difficult...

    CINCINNATI - Ohio's rules for primary elections make it too hard for minor parties to get on the ballot, a federal appeals court ruled. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel said the primary requirements allow the Republican and Democratic parties to monopolize general elections. Ohio "is among the most restrictive, if not the most restrictive, state in granting minor parties access to the ballot," the ruling said. Parties automatically qualify for the primary ballot if their candidate for governor or president received at least 5 percent of the vote in the previous Ohio election. Any other party must...

    Isn't it ironic that one of the things our enemies, the Islamofascists, hate about America is the very thing that enables them to operate here? I'm talking about our openness. Our rights to privacy. The many freedoms granted us by the U.S. Constitution. And the protections and even special treatment afforded Muslim organizations in the U.S. We're a society like no other. Take for example last week's decision by Federal District Court Judge James Whittemore of Florida, who ruled in favor of ACLU lawyers last week that pat down searches before football games should be prohibited because they violate fans'...

    In California, Fox Gets Warm Embrace and a Cold ShoulderBy JOHN M. BRODER Published: May 26, 2006 SACRAMENTO, May 25 — In an echo of the debate on immigration under way in Washington, the California Legislature gave visiting President Vicente Fox of Mexico a two-edged welcome on Thursday. Democratic and Latino members, including the Assembly speaker, Fabian Núñez, embraced Mr. Fox, while some Republicans boycotted his evening address to a joint session of the Legislature. Other Republicans attended the speech, but wore yellow buttons reading "No más!" to protest Mr. Fox's support for liberalizing American policies on immigration. In his...

    MADRID, Spain - Scientists said Friday they have confirmed that at least some of Christopher Columbus' remains were buried inside a Spanish cathedral, a discovery that could help end a century-old debate over the explorer's final resting place. DNA samples from 500-year-old bone slivers could contradict the Dominican Republic's competing claim that the explorer was laid to rest in the New World, said Marcial Castro, a Seville-area historian and high school teacher who devised the study that began in 2002. However, some of Columbus' remains also could have been buried in the Dominican Republic, he said. The announcement came a...
  • Some citizens look to offset planned illegal immigrant boycott

    With no immediate solution in sight to immigration issues, demonstrators are calling for a boycott to underscore the economic power of immigrants. Millions of people, including those in the U.S. illegally, are expected to skip work and boycott businesses nationwide on Monday. However, some are hoping a simple e-mail message will slow that boycott's momentum. Millions of Americans log on to their computers to check their e-mails every single day, and some people are taking advantage of the current era of cyberspace technology to voice their opinions on immigration reform by forwarding mass e-mails. “To all the real Americans, you...

    FAIRFAX, Va. - A Chantilly High School teacher accused of giving marijuana to a student was arrested at his home on Monday. Thomas Newlun, 53, faced charges including marijuana distribution and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. According to police, Newlun allegedly gave a small amount of marijuana to a 17-year-old student after class last Friday. The boy then gave the drugs to a school security officer. Fairfax County Public Schools spokesman Paul Regnier said Newlun is on administrative leave without pay. Newlun, a special education teacher, started working for the system in 1989, and except for being out...
  • Some justices seem to rethink campaign-finance ruling

    WASHINGTON — It was deja vu all over again at the Supreme Court yesterday, as justices reprised the First Amendment debate over provisions of the federal campaign-finance law that restrict electioneering ads just before an election. In the 2003 litigation over the law that resulted in the ruling McConnell v. Federal Election Commission, the First Amendment lost, with a majority of the Court upholding the restrictions on their face, even though they restrict speech when it arguably matters most. Yesterday, presented with a real-life challenge by a Wisconsin antiabortion group that had to yank its advertisements off the air because...

    Let's give Iran some of its own medicine By Mark Steyn (Filed: 17/01/2006) So let me see. On the one hand, we have a regime that is pressing full steam ahead with its nuclear programme and whose president has threatened to wipe another sovereign state off the map. And, on the other side of the negotiations, we have Her Britannic Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs. Jack Straw has been at pains to emphasise that no military action against Iran is being contemplated by him or anybody else, but in a sign that he's losing patience...

Four F-15s flown by the Hawaii Air National Guard roared above the bay, including one jet that veered off from the group to symbolize the 2,390 people killed.

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 18, 2005 – The Army and Marine Corps are recalling about 18,000 protective vests, but officials emphasize that troops wearing them aren't at risk and that the recall has nothing to do with ballistic plate protection. The recall, announced Nov. 17, affects 18,425 Outer Tactical Vests - 8,083 from the Army and 10,342 from the Marine Corps, defense officials said. Officials call the recall a precautionary measure, ordered because the 14 affected lots of vests may not have met contractual specifications regarding ballistic performance when they were produced and fielded between 1999 and 2001. An administrative review conducted...

    Milwaukee Vets Parade Bans Some Vets Nov 2, 2005 2:46 pm US/Central (AP) MILWAUKEE Organizers of the Milwaukee Veterans Day Parade scheduled Saturday have banned the local Veterans For Peace chapter from the event, saying the group's political activism violates the spirit of the parade to honor veterans. "I will not allow anything political," Mary Ann D'Aquisto, president of Veterans Day Parade of Milwaukee Inc., said Tuesday. She appeared at a news conference called by John Zutz, a leader of the local peace group, to denounce the action. "You're trying to use our parade to further your political agenda," D'Aquisto...
