Beheading in Berlin

Gates of Vienna

Cultural Enrichment News

There was a report in last night’s news feed about a man in Berlin who murdered his wife and threw her severed head from the roof deck of an apartment building. It’s no surprise that none of the MSM stories mentioned the ethnicity of the murderer, but given the nature of the crime, the presence of cultural enrichment wasn’t hard to guess.

Our German correspondent Tiedar sends further details about the incident, which was even more gruesome than yesterday’s reports indicated. Readers who are sensitive to descriptions of grotesque brutality are advised not to read below the jump.

According to Tiedar:
The article reported a killing and a dismembered corpse in Berlin Kreuzberg (Kreuzberg is a part of Berlin). A 32-year-old man (Orhan S.) was on the roof deck with two knives in front of him where lay his beaten wife (Sema S.), and behind the windows his children could be seen. He held the two knives, shouted “Allahu akhbar”, cut off the woman’s head, and threw it into the yard.

The police confirm only that the corpse had been cut into pieces. Residents said that she was very tolerant because her husband had a mistress in the building complex, and had two children with her. His wife had often forgiven him.

A few days ago she threw her unfaithful husband out, and that might have been her death penalty, someone on the third floor said.

The police don’t comment on the rumor that her husband was taking drugs or mentally ill, but many people try to lead the murder back to this rumor, because otherwise no one would be able to commit such a crime.

In the comment section there is a comment that hits the mark:
“[…] Sie scheinen aber Blind zu sein wenn sie die ganzen Beziehungs- und Ehrenmorde sowie die Herkunft der Täter/Opfer totschweigen wollen. Das löst keine Probleme. Wenn etwas mit Rechtem Hintergrund oder auch nur Verdacht geschieht ist das Geschrei sofort riesig. Gibt es wieder mal Massenhetzen von Migranten oder Angriffe auf die Polizei wird weggeschaut, gerade von der Mainstreampresse. Da muss man sich in lokalen Zeitungen einlesen. Traurig sowas.”

“You might be blind if you want to hush up all the relational- and honour-killings as well as the origin of perpetrator/victim. This doesn’t solve the problems. If something bad happens involving people a with right-wing background, or if there is only a suspicion, there is a lot of yelling. But if there is mass predation by migrants or attacks on the police the mainstream press look the other way. You have to read it in the local newspaper. It’s a pity.”
In another source it’s reported that as his wife lay on the roof deck Orhan cut into her throat, carved her face, and removed her right breast. While doing so he shouted “Allahu akhbar”. A neighbour said that not only her head was in the background, but also her breast was there.

His relationship with another women is described thus: He had two children with an Iranian woman named Leyla. Sema (the victim) wanted to separate after so much harm and pain. According to a friend, Sema was pregnant, but this couldn’t be confirmed by a CAT Scan.

A Mess of Pottage

Gates of Vienna

In an appropriate follow-up to last night’s report by Bewick, our English correspondent Pierre Picaud discusses what the Diamond Jubilee celebrations reveal about Modern Multicultural Britain.

Diamond Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth II

“Unity through Diversity”?
by Pierre Picaud

A casual observer opening up the current pages of Britain’s anaemic right-wing press is greeted by an unprecedented expression of optimism and positivity.

The source of all this rapture is the jubilee celebrations presently underway, which mark the diamond anniversary of the ascension of the United Kingdom’s most dutiful long-suffering monarch: Elizabeth II.

From Melanie Phillips in the Daily Mail, to Ed West in the Daily Telegraph, to Fraser Nelson in The Spectator, there is a palpable sense of relief, joy even, at what is deemed to represent an unparalleled display of patriotism and national loyalty, the likes of which have not been witnessed in Britain for a generation.

As a feast for the eyes and an amazing technical accomplishment, the still on-going celebrations which began with a mesmerising pageant on the River Thames in London and continued last night with a gala concert on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace, the events are a wonderful success.

(This essay’s title is drawn from the very moving speech given by Prince Charles, in recognition of his mother’s tireless service, at the conclusion of last night’s performance.)

The numbers attending have been dizzying to an extent beyond normal human comprehension: with as many as 1.2 million people lining the riverbank for Sunday’s pageant, mostly in the pouring rain.

The whole spectacle has spawned a new and surprising narrative of national unity and togetherness, which has come as a surprise and a relief to those commentators who had previously found themselves perturbed by and decrying the perceived fragmentation of British society.

Here were the public in central London, in their millions no less, unabashedly displaying and celebrating Britain and Britishness; with a Union flag hanging from every lamppost and waving from every hand, and not a sight of that hated blue-and-yellow EU monstrosity anywhere…

What a relief!

There is, however, one slight problem with this picture that no one is mentioning. A small boy tugging at his mother’s coat at the Emperor’s parade, aching to express a truth that can perhaps only find the light of day at somewhere like Gates of Vienna.

With the exception of very small numbers — that are in essence statistically irrelevant — whether you like it or not, pretty much everybody you see in the multitude gathered in London is white.

To understand the significance of this, one needs to know the demographics of the city.

Greater London, the largest conurbation in Europe, is usually divided into two geographic zones: the suburban ‘outer ring’, and the metropolitan ‘inner city’. London’s inner portion has been majority immigrant territory for some time, and as the years progress even the outer ring is approaching parity between immigrants and native inhabitants.

Thanks to publicly subsidised housing, with the exception of a few isolated pockets the centre of the city is mainly immigrant-dominated.

A visitor to the majority of the primary schools of the boroughs which lined the river down which Sunday’s pageant rowed, would see that the ethnicity which formed 98% plus of the audience for the jubilee, is represented as a rule in less than 10% (in many cases less than 5%) of the demographic makeup of the pupils of those schools.

Where then, one is forced to ask, were the parents of the rest of all these children, presumably a convenient short stroll away from demonstrating and celebrating their “Britishness”?

Why did they not seize this simple and convenient opportunity to declare themselves full, happy, and enthusiastic members of our grand multicultural society, when the vast majority of attendees had largely travelled much great distances in order to do so (according to train company reports)?

The cameras of the BBC, usually anxious to present a picture of multiracial harmony, and whose coverage of the events has been broadly panned as inane, clearly struggled in desperation to find non-white faces in the crowds.

Their failure to do so was even more stark as they linked to outside broadcasts of commemorative street parties up and down the country, particularly in places like Luton, where it was patently evident that wherever the English were in the minority only the English were doing any celebrating at all.

Where were the others? Our fellow “Britons”?

Those perfectly capable of coming out in their tens, even hundreds of thousands; for publicly funded Hindu Diwali celebrations in Trafalgar Square, or the Afro-Caribbean yearly carnival in Notting Hill (policing cost to the British taxpayer: 34 million pounds a year), or Islamic Eid “festivals” in East London; were all conspicuous by their virtual absence.

This is not an Islamic issue, or even one truly of colour or race. It would have been surprising if any significant proportion of those celebrating this jubilee weekend were Poles, or any of the nearly two million Eastern Europeans who have come to the UK over the last decade, either.

The predominant skin colour of those attending the jubilee has merely provided visual confirmation of how comprehensively the social model into which decades worth of political and financial capital has been invested in Britain has failed.

To be clear: the English (unlike the Scots or Welsh to any similar degree) were told, not outright, but tacitly and subtly; through policy, policing, changes to educational syllabi, deliberate alterations to the cultural framework etc., that Englishness — their identity — would have to be subsumed, altered, diluted, undermined, even to the point of being questioned as having any true cohesive validity.

This was a necessary evil. It had to be done in order not to alienate or marginalise the millions of immigrants arriving mostly in the English portion of Britain, who “yearned to be part of our society” and to make a better life for themselves into the bargain.

Though awkward, this essential transformation would be worth it, and would in turn bring about a fresh paradigm of nationality.

Britishness would be elevated into a new and inclusive form of meta-identity that all could participate in and be welcomed by. A mélange-identity uniting and encompassing all comers.

This new paradigm in turn would have its own founding myths, as do all attempts to unite disparate ethno-religious communities. The myth that a person newly arrived from East Africa was “just as British” as any Englishwoman who might be able to trace her family back to the Norman conquest. The myth that one could achieve, “Strength through Diversity.”

Furthermore, these myths would be reinforced by numerous means.

Television “idents” and programs for example would subtly attempt to communicate harmonious multi-cultural unity, as in this collage. (Compare in particular the ethnic makeup of those attending the faux street party at the end of this BBC jubilee ident with those in this CNN report of the genuine article.)

And thousands of farcical local council propaganda posters on buses and billboards would show a similar multitude of grinning multiracial faces, regardless of the theme. The golden rule of course being that the more outnumbered the actually English people in the photograph were, the more strained and enthusiastic their smiling had to be.

(This collection of picture exhibits shows the usual progression from the London boroughs of: Southwark, to Camden, to Newham, to Hackney, to Lewisham, to Tower Hamlets.)

This effort was so total and all-encompassing, that it was easy thoughtlessly to fall for it and assume it to be in part true. Particularly as every effort has been made, either by immigrants themselves or by positive discrimination, to advance newcomers through the professions so that they are now over-represented in medicine, media and the law.

Notwithstanding the fact, that the promotion of compulsory allegiance to this narrative has shifted over the decades from a gentle socio-political prodding, to a state of affairs where any who dare to forcibly question it in public face imprisonment.

But it was only required to force allegiance to this mind-set from natives… not, of course, from those who came; that would have been racially presumptuous and monstrously unfair. The one was supposed to magically facilitate the other.

But patriotism and national loyalty are based on the individual’s core willingness to sacrifice; and in modern Britain the balance of sacrificial expectation was set right from the start.

The state had to sacrifice to provide the benefits that would be received by the newcomer, while the immigrant was required to sacrifice and surrender, in exchange for the comforts and opportunities of their new life, well… what exactly?

In the interests of generating a nationally loyal harmony, every multicultural effort has been made to bend over backwards in the promotion of togetherness and inclusivity, up to and including the sacrifice of many essential characteristic elements of a thousand years of English and British history; right down to the abandonment of the most basic things like the promotion of our own language on the one hand, or judicial protections like double jeopardy on the other.

The children of the English, in the schools for which their parents pay through their taxes, are now compulsorily taught not the glories and accomplishments of their nation’s past, but primarily and chiefly its inequities, oppressions and “evils”.

This did not happen by chance. It was a transaction. A deal.

The accurate depiction of Britain’s majestic and impressive history for example, was to be abandoned in exchange for something. Deliberately disowning historical reality (like a thousand and one other such national cultural renunciations) was intended to provide an inclusivity that would in turn guarantee the delivery of an attached, benign and loyal immigrant population.

So where were they then: when a golden and simple opportunity presented itself for the demonstration of their new Britishness? Nothing jingoistic, or confrontational, but a four day series of events designed from the start to be achingly inclusive and multicultural.

Frankly? Our new fellow-Britons were nowhere to be seen.

When the chance arose to show how successful this theory of mutable national identity in fact was, in whose name so much has been forcibly lost, the results are startling — and, for those with an eye to the future, more than a little alarming.

The paradigm hasn’t changed. Our social engineers are either liars or fools.

People always only feel a genuine allegiance and loyalty to a place with which they have a pre-existing hereditary, historic or geographical investment.

The newcomers want no part of it, thank you very much.

Benefits? — “Yes.”

Sacrifices? — “Hmm. We’d rather not, if it’s all the same to you.”

And to be clear: the kind of sacrifice under discussion in this essay is not mounting the lip of a trench to advance into machine-gun fire in defence of your nation’s values or borders, but taking a couple of hours out your bank holiday weekend to stand in the rain for a bit with a flag.

This is the grim harvest we must expect from multiculturalism’s insistence that pre-existing identities should be encouraged to flourish rather than to adapt.

The British, and more chiefly the English, have received nothing in return for their sacrifice: of identity, of tradition, of heritage, and of culture.

They’ve been conned. Duped. The promised transaction hasn’t taken place: there will be no unity in the United Kingdom, and no guarantee of security as a result.

We will not see the likes of this weekend again.

Bobby Jindal: An Impressive background

Jindal’s mother Raj was three months pregnant with him when his parents came to this country from Punjab, India in 1971. The daughter of a bank manager, Raj had a scholarship to study for a doctorate in nuclear physics at Louisiana State University.

The family was poor and had no car. But Jindal’s mother read to him each night. His father, Amar, had a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and eventually got a job with a railroad. He reminded his son almost daily how lucky they were to live in America. Amar was disappointed if his son earned only As in school. He had to bring home A-pluses.

Jindal’s name is Piyush Jindal, but at the age of four, he decided to take the nickname Bobby — after the youngest son in the TV series “The Brady Bunch.”

“Every day after school, I’d come home and I’d watch ‘The Brady Bunch,’” Jindal explains. “And I identified with Bobby, you know? He was about my age, and ‘Bobby’ stuck.”

As a teenager, Jindal competed in tennis tournaments and started a computer newsletter, a retail candy business, and a mail-order software company.

Jindal attended Brown University, where he led the College Republicans and graduated with honors in biology and public policy. He became an intern on the staff of Rep. Jim McCrery, a Republican from Louisiana. After days of performing menial duties, Jindal approached his boss.

“Congressman, I really appreciate the opportunity to be here in Washington and to be one of your interns,” Jindal said, according to McCrery. “For the last few days, I’ve been in the back office doing the filing and sorting and all of those things, and I don’t mind doing that, but I was just wondering, while I’m here, if you could give me an assignment.”

Impressed at Jindal’s pluck, McCrery said, “Write a paper on Medicare and how you solve it.”

Two weeks later, Jindal submitted the paper.

“I read it, and it was excellent,” McCrery says. “For him to grasp as well as he did the Medicare program in such a short period of time was nothing short of amazing.”

Jindal accepted a Rhodes scholarship at Oxford University, where he studied public health policy.

Like Romney, Jindal’s first job entailed making companies run more efficiently. For a year and a half, he worked for McKinsey & Co., a leading management consulting firm.

In 1996 at the age of 24, Jindal was named secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, the state’s largest agency. Jindal cut millions of dollars in waste and fraud. He found that Louisiana was paying lump sums to hospitals at the beginning of the year based on how many Medicaid patients they estimated they would treat. The state rarely checked to see if they had actually treated that number. State-financed clinics that employed a dozen people had no patients.

Jindal went on to be president of the University of Louisiana System. In 2001, President George W. Bush named him assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

GOA Sues ATF to Produce Documents

The foundation of Gun Owners of America today filed suit in the U.S. District Court for D.C. to compel the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to produce thousands of documents related to Operation Fast & Furious.

Depending upon the outcome of this case, Justice Department officials could spend time in jail.

Last year, Gun Owners Foundation submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) which -- not surprisingly -- has virtually been ignored by the ATF. Although the agency has told GOF several times that it would comply with the FOIA request, the ATF has violated each and every one of its self-imposed deadlines.

On March 16, 2011, Congressman Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent a letter to ATF requiring production of records related to their involvement in Operation Fast & Furious -- where thousands of firearms were smuggled from the United States to Mexico.

On April 21, 2011, Gun Owners Foundation submitted its own FOIA request to the ATF, to which the ATF has responded in various ways. The agency has sometimes ignored our requests entirely. Several times, ATF has promised (but failed) to produce information by a certain date. And at least once, the ATF suggested we were mistaken, claiming that they had already given us the requested information -- only to follow up that communication with a new promise and new deadline for producing the requested documents.

If the court finds in favor of the GOF complaint, the ATF will have to produce the requested documents or face “contempt of court” charges. Given that media reports indicate the House of Representatives may decline to press contempt charges, Gun Owners Foundation remains committed to pressing this case until justice is realized.

Please help Gun Owners Foundation to continue doing this important work. You can contribute to GOF at:

Ron Paul delegate update

I wanted you to get an update from me personally, since we have some great news!

Due to the smart planning of our campaign and the hard work and diligence of supporters like you, we stand to send nearly 200 bound delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa. This number shatters the predictions of the pundits and talking heads and shows the seriousness of our movement.

What's more, we will send several hundred additional supporters to Tampa who, while bound to Romney, believe in our ideas of liberty, constitutional government, and a common-sense foreign policy.

When it is all said and done, we will likely have as many as 500 supporters as delegates on the Convention floor. That is just over 20 percent!

And while this total is not enough to win the nomination, it puts us in a tremendous position to grow our movement and shape the future of the GOP!

I hope every one of you continues the fight we have advanced so well this year. I hope you will finish your local and state conventions, and, if you were selected as a national delegate, that you will head to Tampa in August to force the Republican Party to listen to the voice of liberty.

We have never had this kind of opportunity. There will be hundreds of your fellow supporters in Tampa who will be ready and willing to push the Republican Party back to its limited government, liberty roots.

There are many issues to fight for in Tampa. Also, candidates like Justin Amash, Kurt Bills, and Thomas Massie need your support as we move into the fall. Across the country, supporters of liberty have won local office and leadership positions in the GOP, and we need to keep working.

Our delegates’ presence must be felt both in Tampa and in years to come.

Stand up for what we believe in. Be respectful. And let the establishment know that we are the future of the Party and of the country.

Our Revolution is just getting started. You'll be hearing plenty from me as we approach Tampa and the fall elections. You'll also be hearing of important developments on Audit the Fed and Campaign for Liberty.

I hope you'll continue to stand with me as we go forward. Our Revolution could not have come this far without you.

For Liberty,

Glock 21 Buried 2 years then 500rd test fire

"People ask why I like Glock handguns. See for yourself."


Glock 21 Torture Test (1 of 30) Shooting Left

I have a 21 and a 30, both bought after reading the Glock Torture Test which is now also on YouTube. I thought that it must be a prank until I checked out the credentials. Same reason I went with a Bulgarian AK, I don't want to worry about them firing or not.

Southern Nationalism

I believe this individual used to be a White Nationalist on Stormfront a long time ago:

“I do understand that people in the South feel that they were treated very unfairly by the North, in the War between the States. I know how much you hate the word ” Civil War”, so I will refer to it as the War between the States. Will you can continue to call it the War of Northern Agression.”

I prefer to use the term “War Between the States” which was coined by Alexander Hamilton in The Federalist No. 8. He wrote about the “case of disunion” which might be formed “out of the wreck of the general Confederacy.”

The reason that I use that term is to stress the importance of sectional conflict across the broad expanse of American history: before the war, during the war, and long after the war. It has been going on continuously over any number of issues (slavery was just one issue, civil rights was another) ever since the ratification of the Constitution.

“I will even agree with you that there were more factors then just slavery on why this War was fought.”

As Jefferson Davis makes clear in his memoirs, the conflict was going on between the “commercial and navigating states” and the “planting states” long before it crystallized into a conflict between “free states” and “slave states” after the gradual demise of slavery in the North during the early nineteenth century.

“It was partly state rights vs federal government rights and who held the greater power. Slavery was something that New Englande from the beginning wanted to end.”

New England was perfectly happy to supply the South, the Caribbean, and the Latin American slave states with an abundant supply of slaves for over a century. Even at the Constitutional Convention, New England had yet to fully embrace the abolition of the slave trade, which is why it was postponed until 1808.

“At the beginning when they set up this new government New England didn’t want slavery to be legal in any part, but agree to postpone the issue for a number of years. Then at some point it had to be dealt with.”

The U.S. Constitution was the Compromise of 1789.

As part of the Compromise of 1789, New England got the commercial Union that it wanted above all else, while the South got the 3/5ths rule and the fugitive slave clause, and later the Bill of Rights including the Tenth Amendment. Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution is there any clause that slavery had to be “dealt with” by the federal government.

“It was your economic way of life, but yet New England felt it was morally wrong to hold and keep slaves.”

New England felt it was “morally wrong” to hold and keep slaves … but mysteriously, interestingly enough, Yankeeland was perfectly willing to process the cotton grown by those slaves on Southern plantations in its own textile industries, and clothe themselves in the products of slavery, and tax Southern households with protective tariffs in order to redistribute wealth created by slavery to the North through internal improvements.

If slavery was so morally wrong, why didn’t New England secede from the Union, as the abolitionists like William Lloyd Garrison wanted? Why didn’t they oppose internal improvement bills financed by slavery? Why didn’t they shut down their textile mills or process only “fair trade” cotton?

“So yes there are many considerations to take to heart and think about as we come to an honest opinion about President Lincoln and his fight to keep the Union together as one.”

By seceding from the Union, the North was perfectly free to abolish slavery in the Union and the territories with a constitutional amendment. In fact, this is exactly what William Lloyd Garrison had always wanted, who for twenty years had been the foremost disunionist in America.

Now that the South had left the Union, the North was no longer “morally complicit” in slavery. How did Abraham Lincoln respond to this triumph of anti-slavery? He tried to ratify a constitutional amendment that would have preserved slavery for all time. He instructed his generals to preserve slavery in states where it existed like Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, and Missouri.

Lincoln himself said that if he could “preserve the Union” without liberating a single slave that he would do it. Going all the way back to the Constitution Convention, New England had been willing to sacrifice everything (including its opposition to slavery) for the commercial Union.

It was “the Union war” right down until the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863.

“I believe that was his intent and not just to punish the South for daring to believe in the right for them as states to decide what they wil and will not believe. Yet, many felt that there had to be a strong federa government.”

Of course.

The war turned on the question of secession, not slavery: was the Union national, perpetual, and indissoluble, or was it federal, tentative, and voluntary? Slavery was merely the “incident” that destroyed the Union over the larger constitutional question.

“My question to White Nationalists who still fly and hold the Confederate lfags close to their heart, is do you think the South will rise again under your leadership? Do you really think that you will be able to keep the South as you believe it should be?”

I think that secession will reemerge as a mainstream issue in the decades ahead. We’re already at the point where nullification has reentered the mainstream:

(1) First, the Southwestern states (Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona) will fall to the Democrats due to changing racial demographics, giving them a national lock on the White House and Supreme Court.

(2) Second, it is only a matter of time before Southern states like Texas, Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia tip into the Democratic column, also due to changing racial demographics.

(3) Third, the Democratic attempt to run America like Chicago will prove to be explosive, and it will lead to the revival of states’ rights and secession talk in Dixie.

(4) Fourth, the exploding national debt and the paralysis of the economy will weaken federal institutions, especially as the military disintegrates and the welfare state collapses under financial pressure.

(5) The Union will break when the cost of the Union becomes too high. It only takes two or three states to launch the movement and force other states to take sides. States like Texas, Florida, and Virginia might break apart in the process in the same way that West Virginia was created.

General Turner Ashby's unique postmortem legacy


Gen. Turner Ashby in death
Gen. Turner Ashby in death

Turner Ashby, killed in action just east of Harrisonburg, Virginia, on June 6, 1862, ranks among the Confederacy‘s earliest, most honored battlefield dead. Even years after the war, Maj. Henry Kyd Douglas, the youngest member of Stonewall Jackson’s staff, still revered Ashby. “The Valley loved him and loves him yet. During the war he had never left her a single day. He had watched over her without ceasing.”

Killed just as Jackson’s Valley Campaign came to a triumphant double climax with Confederate victories at Cross Keys on June 8 and then at Port Republic the next day, Ashby’s death spurred an unusual accolade from Jackson himself: “…the close relations which General Ashby bore to my command, for most of the previous twelve months, will justify me in saying that as a partisan officer I never knew his superior. His daring was proverbial, his tone of character heroic, his power of endurance almost incredible, and his sagacity almost intuitive in divining the purposes and movements of the enemy.”

Two Stories: One Important, One Amazing, from Michael Farris


Mount Rushmore

Yesterday, two important things happened—one was significant, the other was amazing.

On June 5, the Parental Rights Amendment was introduced into both houses of Congress. In the Senate, Senator Jim DeMint is the prime sponsor. It was introduced as SJRes42. In the House, Representative Trent Franks is the prime sponsor of HJRes110.

We are very grateful to be fully underway to secure the passage of the PRA.

That same day an amazing thing happened. Our staff brought me a letter from a 17 year old girl from Michigan—Hannah. Hannah wrote that ten years ago, her father had heard me speak at a conference where I encouraged dads to reward their children for reading the Bible every day. I told how I had given my older children $100 if they would read the Bible every day for a year without missing a single day.

Hannah told me that her dad had been doing that for the past 10 years. And for ten years, Hannah had been saving her money.

After all this time, Hannah was led to send the entire $1000 she had saved to support the work of She understood the power of good parenting in her own life and wants to be sure that when she is a parent she has the same rights that her parents have enjoyed.

I have to tell you that I was brought to tears when I heard Hannah’s story. It is one of the most amazing stories I have ever been privileged to hear.

And it seems that it was no coincidence that her check was brought to me on the very day that the PRA was introduced.

I feel prompted to ask a number of parents to match Hannah’s gift. Some of you can give $1000 like she did. Others can give $100 for the cause of parental rights.

Frankly, we have been running this organization on fumes—and I feel free to say this because I don’t receive any salary or expenses from this organization. We need to be in a strong position as we get ready to launch this crucial phase of our campaign. Will you join Hannah in supporting the work of today?

ATF agents point machine guns at 8-year-old

A Colorado woman has filed a lawsuit after agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the ATF, entered her home without a warrant and threatened her and her 8-year old-son while looking for a previous tenant who had left the address more than a year earlier.

According to the filing from Linda Griego, it was on June 15, 2010, when officers with the ATF – as part of the Regional Anti-Gang Enforcement Task Force – violently entered her home without a warrant, handcuffed and pointed guns at her and her son, Colby Frias.

“They had multiple machine pistols pointed at my son. I could see the laser sights on his body and he began to freak out. While I was cuffed I had to calm him down while the officers broke down his bedroom door,” she said.

Her legal action is against the Greeley Police Department and the ATF for illegally entering the home without a warrant.

David Lane, Griego’s attorney, told WND that to this day the agency still has not produced a warrant authorizing it to enter her home. He said Frias continues to suffer nightmares about the events of that day.

Poll: 24 Percent of Americans Believe States Have a Right to Secede up 10 percentage points in two years

The latest poll is just one of many that shows that Americans have “serious and growing concern about the federal government,” according to Scott Rasmussen, founder and president of Rasmussen Reports.

According to the phone survey released Sunday, 24 percent of Americans believe that states should be able to withdraw from the United States to form their own country, if they want. Nearly 60 percent (59) of Americans say they don’t believe states have the right to secede, while 16 percent are undecided.

“We do see that people are concerned about the federal government in a variety of ways,” Rasmussen told “51 percent believe that it’s a threat to individual liberties.

Phoenix homeowner shoots intruder

Via Guns Save Lives

A homeowner shot a burglar who broke into his house Tuesday, and the burglar was critically injured.

It happened about 3:00 p.m. in the 3300 block of South 90th Lane.

The homeowner was an off-duty Tolleson Police officer. He was taking a nap when he heard a sound in his house.

The officer brought his gun downstairs with him and confronted the subject.

The burglar made a motion to throw a rock at the homeowner, so he shot him in the head, according to police at the scene.

"He was yelling some commands and challenging him when the burglar in this case turned toward him with the rock... at which time the homeowner fired one round, struck the subject in the head, and the subject went down," said Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump.

The Tolleson police officer administered aid and immediately called 911.

The suspect is described as a young black male, possibly in his teens. He apparently got in by breaking a window.

A Modesto man was arrested and charged with a hate crime after reportedly punching a 69-year-old woman in a wheelchair in the face and saying he hated white people.

At 11:20 a.m. Tuesday, Modesto police were called to the 1600 block of Coffee Road for a report of an assault.

Officers found the woman in a motorized wheelchair near a bus stop with a black eye and minor lacerations to her face. Her glasses had been broken.

The woman told police she had been waiting for a Modesto Area Express bus when she was approached by Nicholas Velasquez, 29, of Modesto.

Police said Velasquez then punched her in the face with a closed fist without provocation.

Welfare state: Immoral and irredeemable

Roundabout via Cousin John

Suppose I saw an elderly woman painfully huddled on a heating grate in the dead of winter. She’s hungry and in need of shelter and medical attention. To help the woman, I walk up to you using intimidation and threats and demand that you give me $200. Having taken your money, I then purchase food, shelter and medical assistance for the woman. Would I be guilty of a crime? A moral person would answer in the affirmative. I’ve committed theft by taking the property of one person to give to another.

Most Americans would agree that it would be theft regardless of what I did with the money. Now comes the hard part. Would it still be theft if I were able to get three people to agree that I should take your money? What if I got 100 people to agree – 100,000 or 200 million people? What if instead of personally taking your money to assist the woman, I got together with other Americans and asked Congress to use Internal Revenue Service agents to take your money? In other words, does an act that’s clearly immoral and illegal when done privately become moral when it is done legally and collectively? Put another way, does legality establish morality? Before you answer, keep in mind that slavery was legal; apartheid was legal; the Nazi’s Nuremberg Laws were legal; and the Stalinist and Maoist purges were legal. Legality alone cannot be the guide for moral people. The moral question is whether it’s right to take what belongs to one person to give to another to whom it does not belong.

Navy Marks Battle of Midway's 70th Anniversary

Via Cousin John

Six months after the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor, Japan sent four aircraft carriers to the tiny Pacific atoll of Midway to draw out and destroy what remained of the U.S. Pacific Fleet.

But this time the U.S. knew about Japan's plans. U.S. cryptologists had cracked Japanese communications codes, giving Fleet Commander Adm. Chester Nimitz notice of where Japan would strike, the day and time of the attack, and what ships the enemy would bring to the fight.

The U.S. was badly outnumbered and its pilots less experienced than Japan's. Even so, it sank four Japanese aircraft carriers the first day of the three-day battle and put Japan on the defensive, greatly diminishing its ability to project air power as it had in the attack on Hawaii.

Breaking: Liberals Plan to Assassinate Walker: 'I Will Kill Walker Myself'

Via Don

Pundit Press

In light of the crushing victory Scott Walker had tonight, liberals are returning to their normal civility: calling for his murder and promises to kill him. Across the internet, crazed leftists are calling for the governor to be assassinated, as they clearly have no respect for democratic elections. Below are just a few of the disgusting comments posted throughout the internet tonight.

"I'll personally kill Walker myself:"

SKSunnyy plans to assassinate the governor:

Josh James expresses his feelings about Mr. Walker:

Jordon Perez wants Walker's children to be fatherless:

Caleb White contemplates assassinating Governor Walker:
Mark Cole, clearly incapable of having an intelligent discussion about politics, simply wishes that Scott Walker would kill himself:

And there are many, many, many more examples. This article, however, is getting too large to list them all.

ABC finally picks up on Randy Dye's speech back in April

I vote on making "disrespect" an official Ebonics word, not to be used by anyone speaking The King's English.

Ron Paul: Support Art Robinson for Congress & A chemist offers GOP a unifying formula


Stand With Dr. Ron Paul and Support Art Robinson for Congress!

Dr. Robinson of the Robinson Homeschool Curriculum that we use. He lost to the 20 some year liberal incumbent last time, but he's not going to give up. He is a Patriot.


In Oregon, chemist offers GOP a unifying formula

Robinson Family Circa 1995


Republicans looking to ease the friction among party stalwarts, tea party activists and Ron Paul supporters headed into this year’s election say they may have found a model of unity in Art Robinson, a scientist who is the GOP candidate for a congressional seat representing an Oregon district.

Mr. Robinson, a former CalTech chemist and home-schooling curriculum author who became a prominent skeptic of taxpayer-funded research based on his own experiences, has hit the kinds of notes that ring well with the limited-government tea party and with libertarian Paul forces.

“Art’s grass-roots campaign challenges the Washington, D.C., cabal of insider politics and is gaining momentum for a very good reason,” said Allen Alley, chairman of the Oregon Republican Party. “There’s a moral and political rudder, a core set of beliefs, that come through. The more you listen, the more his good sense comes through.”

But even more, Republicans hope Mr. Robinson can be a template for the broader national party. Many activists fret that Republicans cannot win the presidential election in November if they put up a candidate in a fractured party against a Democratic Party unified behind President Obama.

Tea partyers and Paul supporters claim enough voters in their camps to be kingmakers in the dozen or so swing states that will decide the election, and both camps have made a point to try to recruit like-minded candidates for lower-level offices.

Russ Walker, vice president of FreedomWorks, the lead organizer of the first tea party mass demonstration in Washington on Sept. 12, 2009, counts 57 congressional contests so far this year in which one of the candidates is or claims to be a tea partyer.

Some take it as a sign of GOP metamorphosis that the Oregon party leadership has embraced Mr. Robinson, the kind of candidate whom the GOP establishment would have cold-shouldered before the tea party’s electoral successes in 2010.

Skeptic on the stump

Hardly a run-of-the-mill GOP candidate, Mr. Robinson has won the endorsement of the Libertarian Party in Oregon’s 4th Congressional District as he seeks to unseat Rep. Peter A. DeFazio, a liberal Democrat and 13-term incumbent. The race is a rematch of 2010, when Mr. DeFazio won by 10 percentage points.

The race this year gained national notice when Mr. DeFazio defeated a challenge from Mr. Robinson’s son, Matthew, who switched parties to run in the Democratic race and won 11 percent of the primary vote.

The senior Mr. Robinson gained prominence when he broke with his close friend and two-time Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, after Mr. Robinson’s own experiments found little evidence for the Pauling claims about Vitamin C’s all-healing benefits.

Ever since, Mr. Robinson sees himself as a “show-me-the-evidence” skeptic about things such as the honesty of career politicians and the reliability of scientists who depend on government or industry grants to make a living. Mr. Robinson said he thinks the findings of taxpayer-subsidized experiments too often reflect the prevailing government-liberal-environmental prejudices rather than scientific objectivity.

“I don’t believe in doing scientific research with government money,” he said.

Contrarian statements like that are music to the ears of many Paulites and tea partyers alike.
