Is it just me, or does Kwanzaa seem to come earlier and earlier each
year? And let’s face it, Kwanzaa’s gotten way too commercialized.
A few years ago, I suspended my annual Kwanzaa column because my
triumph over this fake holiday seemed complete. The only people still
celebrating Kwanzaa were presidential-statement writers and white female
public school teachers.
But it seems to be creeping back. A few weeks ago, House Minority
Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., complained about having to stick
around Washington for fiscal cliff negotiations by accusing Republicans
of not caring about “families” coming together to bond during Kwanzaa.
The private schools have picked up this PC nonsense from the public
schools. (Soon, no one will know anything.)
It is a fact that Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by a black radical FBI
stooge, Ron Karenga – aka Dr. Maulana Karenga – founder of United
Slaves, a violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers. He was also a
dupe of the FBI.
In what was ultimately a foolish gamble, during the madness of the
’60s, the FBI encouraged the most extreme black nationalist
organizations in order to discredit and split the left. The more
preposterous the group, the better.
By that criterion, Karenga’s United Slaves was perfect. In the annals
of the American ’60s, Karenga was the Father Gapon, stooge of the
Despite modern perceptions that blend all the black activists of the
’60s, the Black Panthers did not hate whites. They did not seek armed
revolution (although some of their most high-profile leaders were drug
dealers and murderers). Those were the precepts of Karenga’s United
United Slaves were proto-fascists, walking around in dashikis,
gunning down Black Panthers and adopting invented “African” names. (That
was a big help to the black community: How many boys named “Jamal” are
currently in prison?)
It’s as if David Duke invented a holiday called “Anglika,” which he
based on the philosophy of “Mein Kampf” – and clueless public school
teachers began celebrating the made-up, racist holiday.
Whether Karenga was a willing dupe, or just a dupe, remains unclear.
Produced in the 1800's,
the (probably French made) ring pistol is a perfect example of what was
known as “la petite protectors”. The ring pistol once was one of the
smallest killing devices ever developed.There doesn’t seem to be much

Brits have responded to the petition calling on the
White House to deport Piers Morgan for his anti-second amendment stance
by lodging a petition of their own with UK Home Secretary Theresa May
entitled ‘Stop Piers Morgan from being deported back to the UK from
The original petition
to deport Morgan for his unconstitutional rhetoric following the Sandy
Hook school shooting has now achieved almost 70,000 signatures, well
beyond the 25,000 required to mandate a White House response.
However, a counter-petition which features on the change.org website calls on the UK government to prevent Morgan from returning to the UK.
“We got rid of him once and why should we have to suffer
again. The Americans wanted him so they should put up with him. We
washed our hands of him a long time ago,” the petition reads.
The fight for guns is on. The disarmament of the American population is
in the works. While everyone looks for goon squads to roam the
neighborhoods looking for these newly illegal weapons, the Marxists in
Washington know the road to supremacy does not work that way. There is a
whole process involved that begins in the most endearing terms:
sympathy. Find a victim, in this case 26 and publicize that victim and
provide the answer to such tragedies by moving in a liberty-sacrificing
This is how Marxism works. The great leader, in this case Barack Obama,
espouses a policy, or even a point of view and the propaganda machine
kicks into gear to convince all of the serfs to adopt that point of view
as if anything else is ridiculous.
It is not so much that they will come with goon squads, they don't need
them. The Marxists in Washington have the media to demonize whatever
they want to change. They have thousands of useful idiots to do their
In the latest round the media has decided to publish the names and
addresses of gun owners in New York. Okay, that shows that they intend
to demonize gun ownership outright, a stupid move, if you ask me,
because what they have just done is announce to every crook and murderer
in the state where the unarmed people live.
Be that as it may, this is their tactic, this is what they have done
every single time to make us swallow one more regulation, one more
I don't know how you gun owners in New York intend to handle this
vicious attack on your home and family, but you should take it
seriously. You should be completely outraged. They are not just
intending to regulate something away, they have made you the enemy. How
effective that is is up for question, but that they feel comfortable
enough to do it, to come after people who have committed no crime, have
not sought the spot light and tried to make their personal business
public, is beyond the pale. It is Marxist propaganda techniques.
In response, I would like all of you gun-owners in New York to know who
they are, their homes and their phone numbers, in case you would like to
visit them with a little derision and inconvenience as their homes are
If you don't want to do something like that, I don't know if I would trust you alongside me in the fight for liberty.
I original saw this piece of awesomeness you see below on arfcom. I
knew I had to have one. So I got in touch with Bryan at AIM and acquired
some mosin crates and Laminate Stock M44s. Thanks Bryan!
Now my photography equipment consisted of an IPHONE 4, so the pics
are not as crisp as what you see above. Additionally, this project was a
lot more work than I anticipated.
First you start with a basic crate. The wood on the inside is
generally in good shape, the wood on the outside; not so much. They move
the crates around with forklifts so you can imagine what could go
wrong. There are several places that I had to repair with wood putty. I
forgot to take pics of that process.
Pope Benedict xvi also drew attention to this in his Christmas Eve address.
Benedict called on Catholics to pray that “Christians in those lands
where our faith was born may be able to continue living there.”
Shortt’s study charts the treatment of Christians in several nations
across the Middle East and Asia. While Christian persecution is a
problem in all the countries he examined, he concluded that “the lion’s
share of their problems arise in Muslim-majority societies.”
He warns that “the early 21st century has seen a steady rise in the
strife endured by Christians.” Half to two thirds of all Christians in
the Middle East have been killed or forced to leave, he writes. One of
the most dramatic drops in number comes from Iraq. In 1990 there were
1.2 to 1.4 million Christians. By the start of the second Gulf war, that
number had plummeted to 500,000 fewer. Now there are under 200,000.
the leadership of neither the Republican Party nor the National Rifle
Association know how to defend their position on guns, we here at Middle
American News will show them how. The Republicans especially need this
lesson because it will fall on the shoulders of conservative GOP members
of Congress to fight the coming legislative assault on the 2nd
Amendment right to own firearms. They are the ones who will face
denunciations for their positions from the news media.
Feinstein, D-CA, will likely lead the effort with the bill she is
introducing to outlaw the sale of semi-automatic rifles that look
like military assault rifles. She claims the guns must be banned because
they enable killers to murder too many people at once.
Here's how to answer whatever argument she and her media supporters will advance:
2010, according to official FBI crime statistics, there were 358
murders committed with rifles of any sort. In that same year, there were
1,704 murders committed with knives, more than four times as many
victims. So why are we trying to ban a kind of rifle when knives kill
far more people? It is true that a killer with a military-looking weapon
can kill far more people than a killer with only a knife. But in the
real world, knives kill more people -- more than four times as many! All
lives have equal value, whether destroyed by a knife or by a rifle.
Since knives are used to kill more people, obviously they are a far more
serious threat to life than a military-looking rifle. In fact, it is
plainly irrational to target rifles when other weapons are far more
dangerous. When making policy, we must be rational, not emotional.
course, the news media on its own won't report arguments that embarrass
the gun ban advocates. So the statistic about knives and rifles must be
voiced consistently, by every gun rights supporter, over and over and
over again. No matter what question a journalist asks, the gun rights
politician must answer with the statistic about rifles vs. knives. When
the reporter asks a different question, the politician must repeat
the statistic again. And again. No matter what he is asked, he must work
in the statistic until it becomes second nature. It will eventually
filter into the public consciousness as long as GOP gun rights
supporters (and NRA spokesmen) repeat the same statistic ad infinitum.
purpose of repeating this statistic is not to "win" the argument. In
politics, no one "wins" arguments. Arguments are used to gain
influence or reduce others' influence with the public. The purpose of
repeating the statistic is to diminish the demonization of
semi-automatic rifles in the mind of the public, to provide a factual
perspective that robs gun ban advocates of the irrational emotional
impact they achieve when denouncing rifles that look like military

Adam Lanza's mother was among the tens of millions of U.S. gun
owners. She legally had a .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle and a pair of
handguns, which her 20-year-old son used to kill 20 children and six
adults in 10 minutes inside a Connecticut school.
In the raw
aftermath of the second-worst school shooting in U.S. history, countless
gun enthusiasts much like Lanza's mother complicate a gun-owning
narrative that critics, sometimes simplistically, put at the feet of a
powerful lobby and caricatured zealots. More civilians are armed in the
U.S. than anywhere else in the world, with Yemen coming in a distant
second, according to the independent Small Arms Survey in Geneva.
Take Blake Smith, a mechanical engineer who lives near Houston and uses an AR-15 style rifle in shooting competitions.
Gov. Rick Perry, who famously claimed to have shot a coyote while
jogging with a pistol holstered to his running shorts, has signed a
half-dozen certificates applauding Smith as one of the state's top
marksmen. "But I won't call myself a fanatic," said Smith, 54, whose

An elementary school has been named after an infamous murderer
believed to be one of the first gangsters in California – infuriating
some parents and law enforcement officers.
The Alisal Union School
District in Salinas agreed to name the new school in honor of Tiburcio
Vasquez – who was eventually hanged for killing at least two people in
the nineteenth century.
Superintendent John Ramirez defended the
board’s decision telling Fox News that one man’s terrorist is another
man’s freedom fighter.
“Tiburcio Vasquez, along with others, was
an individual who was a revolutionary,” Ramierz said. “He was not okay
with the oppression.”
Vasquez “was probably the most notorious bandit California ever saw,” according to the University of Southern California library. He was 14-years-old when he committed his first crime – stabbing a constable.
1875 Vasquez was convicted of two murders and subsequently hanged.
Other historical records indicate he may have killed as many as six
people – including a law enforcement officer.
Makes sense, though I had never heard it explained this way. My mother would use Lord instead of God.
Did you know the saying "GOD willing and the Creek don't rise" was in
reference to the Creek Indians and not a body of water? It was written
by Benjamin Hawkins in the late 18th century. He was a politician and
Indian diplomat. While in the south, Hawkins was requested by the
President of the U.S. to return to Washington. In his response, he was
said to write, "GOD willing and the Creek don't rise." Because he
capitalized the word "Creek" it is deduced that he was referring to the
Creek Indian tribe and not a body of water.
