California: Clinically Insane

A homeowner was arrested Tuesday after he shot at three burglary suspects which he claims were preparing to break into a home in his neighborhood in Alta Vista, California. He says they also tried to run over him with their car when he went to confront them, and that’s when he shot at them, striking the front passenger.

According to a local Fox News affiliate, the homeowner, James Monroe, 57, had witnessed the trio burglarize a neighbor’s home, only to return less than an hour later looking for additional loot. When he saw the car casing the area and one of the occupants get out of the car and walk through a neighbor’s yard, he told his wife to call the police, armed himself with a 9mm handgun, and walked outside to question their presence in his neighborhood.

San Diego Police Officer Dino Delimitros said that once Monroe walked into the street, the suspects saw him, then tried to run him over with their car while attempting to flee. That’s when Monroe fired two shots into the car, one hitting the front passenger in the head.

Minutes later the three arrived at a local hospital. The man who was shot, whose name has not been released, was treated for the gunshot wound, which appears to be non-life threatening. The two girls who were with him, 18-year-old Tronicqua Yvonne Henderson and 19-year-old Javonna Renae Percy-Simpson, were both arrested. According to the San Diego Police Department, one had a felony warrant for auto theft and the other had a misdemeanor warrant. In addition, the vehicle they were in was also reported stolen.

Monroe was also arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

US Attorney Bill Killian: Posting Something Mean About Muslims on Social Media Might Be a Criminal Action Under Federal Civil Rights Laws

U.S. Backed – Obama Supported FSA Rebels Massacre an Entire Christian Village in Syria

Members of the Free Syrian Army reportedly attacked the Christian-dominated al-Duvair village in Reef on the outskirts of Homs on Monday, where they massacred its citizens, including women and children, before the Syrian Army loyal to Bashar al Assad intervened on behalf of the Christians.

The First Amendment served us well for a time, but now it's outdated.

Remember reading that England had arrested a guy for anti-Muslim Twitter postings in the aftermath of the Woolrich slaughter? And remember thinking, "Well, this is America, that can't happen here"?

Oh yes it can. Obama's Attorney for the Eastern district of Tennessee wants you to know that if you say something untoward about Muslims, the Federal government may imprison you.
Killian and Moore will provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian told The News Monday. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.” ... Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.

Fort Worth PD Guns Down Senior Citizen in his own Driveway

Man reportedly shot five six times by police while attempting to help neighbor he likely thought was in distress

Two police officers in Fort Worth are claiming the reason they gunned down a 72-year-old man in his own drive-way is because they “felt threatened.”

Early Tuesday, Jerry Wayne Waller heard his neighbor’s home alarm system sound, so he grabbed his gun and began walking over to investigate what the problem was.

“The 72-year-old man didn’t even make it to the house across the street before he was shot. He died on his own property,” reported CBS Fort Worth.

Waller was reportedly shot five six times attempting to help a neighbor he likely thought was in distress.

Of Waller’s family, one of his neighbors, Becky Haskin, a former Fort Worth City Councilwoman stated, “They are just a nice retired couple, that loved working in their yard, having family over, and grandkids.” Haskin also said she saw the officers “sobbing uncontrollably and very distraught” following the shooting.

Fort Worth police Cpl. Tracey Knight said, “Officers felt threatened by the man with the handgun and he was shot,” but Waller’s family says they are “disturbed” by this excuse.

“We were disturbed by suggestions that police may have felt threatened by a man in his own garage faced with unknown trespassers wielding flashlights,” the family remarked in a statement released today.

Waller’s family says police have also been feeding misinformation to local news stations and the public. They are calling for an independent investigation into yesterday’s deplorable police actions.
Waller’s wife Kathy told NBC DFW she was “disgusted” by the incident, describing the officers as “trigger happy.”

“He would give you the shirt off his back, and he was loving, and he was a wonderful husband,” Kathy said the day of the shooting. “I think the police made a terrible mistake.”

The officers involved, R.A. Hoeppner and B.B. Hanlon, have been on the force less than a year and were not hurt, according to law enforcement. They have been placed on administrative leave until the investigation concludes.

School's Health Insurance To Cover Students' Sex Changes

Under the Affordable Care Act, everyone is forced to buy Cadillac health insurance plans, even the young and healthy who do not need them, in order to pay for everyone else's Cadillac health insurance plan.

 U.S. American Nicole Mansfield reportedly killed in Syria - TheGuardian

The family of an American woman killed while fighting with rebel forces in Syria have spoken of their shock and said she had converted to Islam after marrying a Muslim man.

Nicole Lynn Mansfield, 33, was one of three westerners reportedly killed in Idlib province in the north of the country. Syrian TV reported that they were killed earlier this week, and implied that all three were fighting alongside the al-Nusra group, an affiliate of al-Qaida.

Speaking from the family hometown of Flint, Michigan, relatives of Mansfield said they did not know who she had been with and were not even aware that she was in the region.

"I didn't think she was (a terrorist), but God only knows," her aunt, Monica Mansfield-Speelman, told the Detroit Free Press.

Obama’s SEAL Team 6 Coverup

Via  avordvet

On August 6, 2011, a military helicopter— Extortion 17— carrying thirty-eight men (including twenty-five of the elite SEAL Team 6, five National Guard and Army Reserve, and eight Afghan commandos) was shot down over Taliban-controlled territory in eastern Afghanistan. They had been on a top secret mission to take out a high-value target.

It was the worst loss of life in a single day since the war in Afghanistan began. Per a 1250-page military report, it was simply the result of a “lucky shot” by Taliban soldiers perched on top of a building. Per families of those killed and military experts at a press conference held on May 9, 2013, this is a lie among a host of other lies.

After the families attended a several hour military briefing about this “lucky shot,” describing what happened and why their sons died, they smelled a rat and started digging around.

Billy and Karen Vaughn, parents of Navy SEAL Aaron C. Vaughn, started poking around at the “official” story and found not a rat, but a stinking swamp, a coverup that went all the way to the top.

Kindergartener interrogated over cap gun until he pees his pants, then suspended 10 days


In the latest incident of anti-gun hysteria to erupt in a school setting, a kindergarten boy has been suspended from school for 10 days because he showed a friend his cowboy-style cap gun on the way to school.

The incident happened on Wednesday morning at about 8:30 a.m. on a school bus in Calvert County, Maryland, reports The Washington Post.

The kindergartener had brought the toy gun because his friend had brought a water gun the previous day. He later told his mother than he “really, really” wanted his friend to see it.The suspended boy had acquired the menacing, plastic, orange-tipped weapon at Frontier Town, a western-themed campground with a water park, mini golf and the like.

School officials at Dowell Elementary School in the town of Lusby proceeded to question the five-year-old for over two hours before finally calling his mother, whom The Post also does not name.

The principal eventually called the boy’s mother at 10:50 a.m. By that time, the five-year-old had wet his pants (which the mother called highly unusual).

The principal told the boy’s mother that the boy had simulated shooting someone on the bus with the offending novelty. However, both the boy and his older sister, a first-grader, say the principal is not telling the truth.

The Post explains that the principal — Jennifer L. Young, according to Dowell Elementary’s website — told the kindergartener’s mother that things would have been even worse had the toy gun been loaded with caps. In that case, the school would have regarded the plaything as an explosive and called the police.

GOA drops 11 Senators grades

Fighting Toomey-Manchin Gun Registration
And exposing the lies of the Far Left
“According to conservative staffers [on Capitol Hill], Gun Owners of America was the most active outside group in early efforts to block all gun control efforts including Toomey-Manchin.” — The Examiner, April 28, 2013
Your GOA has been on the front lines, fighting for your rights. 
While the news media has been focusing on several Obama Administration scandals in recent weeks — and rightfully so — don’t for a minute think that efforts to pass gun control in the Senate have died down.
They haven’t.  The truth is that Representatives Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) are still at work — still trying to pull Senators over to their anti-gun side.
Sen. Toomey told the Philadelphia Inquirer recently that he is looking “to bring some more folks on board” — and that if successful, “then of course it would be worth bringing [gun control] up again.”
Both he and Manchin are still at it, trying to twist arms and coerce people over to his side.
Congress is just finishing up its Memorial Day break, so you are encouraged to resume contacting them now that they will soon be getting back to work.  Let them know your approval (or disapproval) of their recent votes in the U.S. Senate.
To this end, GOA has just updated its website to give you the ammunition you need to hold your Senators accountable:
NOTE:  In regard to the Senate voting records, you can click on the title of each vote to read an explanation of each vote.  And regarding the grades that are posted, you will note that the following Senators saw their grades drop as a result of their recent votes IN FAVOR of gun control:
Jeff Flake (R-AZ)
Saxby Chambliss (R-GA)
Johnny Isakson (R-GA)
Joe Donnelly (D-IN)
Roger Wicker (R-MS)
Dean Heller (R-NV)
Martin Heinrich (D-NM)
Richard Burr (R-NC)
Tom Coburn (R-OK)
Pat Toomey (R-PA)
Joe Manchin (D-WV)
Gun Owners of America has continued to expose the gun grabbers’ lies, and we have continued to lobby House and Senate offices in opposition to gun control.
Your continued support helps keep us in the fight
And every new person you encourage to sign up for our free email alerts or for a GOA membership gives us a louder voice on Capital Hill.
As noted by the Examiner (above), your GOA was the most active group in blocking gun control.  But that was only possible because of your loud voice backing us up.

Islamic jihadists shouting 'Allah is the greatest' destroy Christian holy site

A newly released video shows al-Qaida-linked jihadists bulldozing a shrine dedicated to the biblical patriarch Abraham in a city in eastern Syria.

Worldwide, there have been dozens of instances over the past few months of Muslims attacking and destroying shrines, holy sites or archeologically significant locations, including in Mali, Afghanistan, Tunisia, Libya and Somalia.

In the video, the jihadists shout “Allahu akbar,” or “Allah is the greatest,” as the construction machine tears down the walls of the Shrine of Abraham in Ayn al-Arous, Syria.

It shows a man throwing an explosive and then declaring, “The heresies that were worshiped besides Allah have been burnt.”

Repeated many times is the cry of “Allahu akbar.”

Then another man states: “The [secret expeditions] will start the destruction of the shrine” and “the idol is being destroyed.”

A report from the Alalam website explained the attackers were al-Qaida-linked al-Nusra Front terrorists. The group has allied itself with the opposition in Syria fighting the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

Effort to oust Sheriff Joe fails


The effort to recall “America’s toughest sheriff,” Maricopa County, Arizona’s Joe Arpaio, fell short of the 355,000 voter signatures needed by yesterday afternoon.

Arpaio reacted to the outcome in a statement.

“After months of name calling, after the disparaging effigies and theatrics … this latest recall effort has failed,” the sheriff said. “This effort failed because the good people of Maricopa County, whom I’m honored to serve, rejected the wrongheaded idea of overturning an election.”

The recall campaign was launched by Respect Arizona and Citizens for a Better Arizona, which protested the sheriff’s aggressive approach to stopping illegal immigration, charging his office targets people on the basis of race, in violation of the Constitution.

Respect Arizona said it believes “our children deserve a sheriff that respects families, respects immigrants and respects Latinos.”

Randy Parraz, president of Citizens for Better Arizona, told the Los Angeles Times the two groups had nearly 300,000 signatures by the 5 p.m. deadline Thursday. He said the setback won’t slow down Arpaio’s critics, vowing “this fight is not over.”

In support of Arpaio, whose backers are as passionate as his enemies, a group called Citizens to Protect Fair Election Results was formed.

The group’s attorney Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, said “dangerous, subversive-like activities of Respect Arizona have the potential to launch this county and possibly the entire state in what can only be called an ‘Electoral Civil War’ that could cost the citizens of Arizona millions of taxpayer dollars.”

Former IRS chief Shulman reportedly visited White House at least 157 times

Just a coincidence, I am sure...........

The former head of the IRS visited the White House more times than any Cabinet member, according to an analysis by The Daily Caller, raising questions about the nature of those visits -- particularly around the time the agency was targeting conservative groups.

The Caller analysis of White House visitor logs showed former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the White House at least 157 times under the Obama administration.

Even Attorney General Eric Holder, one of Obama's closest allies, visited only 62 times according to the records.

The records may not reflect every single visit, as some officials do not have to sign in every time they come to the White House.

But they could lend weight to concerns voiced by lawmakers at a hearing last week about the frequency of Shulman's White House contact. During the time period when the IRS was singling out Tea Party and other groups for extra vetting -- as they applied for tax-exempt status -- Shulman visited the White House 118 times.

The New York City Health Department’s NYC teen website now includes an app that teens can download to their smart phones to get information on “sexual health,” including where they can get birth control and abortions.

The app, under the heading “Important Links and Info,” has three main links – Where to Go; sexual health services, What to Get; condoms and birth control; and What to Expect; at the clinic.

The New York City Health Department’s NYC teen website now includes an app that teens can download to their smart phones to get information on “sexual health,” including where they can get birth control and abortions.

The app, under the heading “Important Links and Info,” has three main links – Where to Go; sexual health services, What to Get; condoms and birth control; and What to Expect; at the clinic.

Under the health services link the user can choose what service they want, including Gold Star clinics (those that offer free birth control and other services), emergency contraceptive or Plan B, and abortion.

If the user picks abortion, they can then choose the area in the city where they want to find services. If the user picks Manhattan, for example, they will be directed to three places that perform abortions – Family Planning Clinic, Harlem Hospital; Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger Center; and Project Stay – Services to Assist Youth at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Under the “info” tab on the app, teens are told that New York state does not have parental consent law when it comes to getting sexual health services.

“Remember, teens in New York State have the right to sexual health services without getting permission from parents, girlfriends/boyfriends or anyone else,” the app says.

The app also provides a link to the NYC Teen website, which reminds teens about the lack of parental consent law in various formats, including a video called “Samantha’s Story,” found on the “Dating and Friends” section of the website.

The seven-minute video is narrated by a teen called Samantha, who talks about having sex with her boyfriend of five months and her sexual desires toward her best friend.

NC: McCrory's economic development vision wants to pay Paul differently

 Via Bernhard NC LS

 JLF Memo

If anyone thought that a change in political party in the governor's mansion would produce a change in the belief that government is actually the state's real job creator, that poor naif is surely disillusioned now that new Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker is sharing the McCrory administration's vision of economic development.

There was talk in the administration of getting the private sector more involved in economic development, but that wound up being euphemism for turning businessmen into political appointees to help decide who gets state incentives. It didn't mean leaving economic growth in the hands of, to borrow a forgotten phrase from the North Carolina Constitution, "the genius of a free state."

"Economic development" by incentives is cronyism at its finest, which is to say, worst. Ask not what your state has taken from you, ask only what benefits it gives the favored few. Government from the people, for the pals, by the politicians. I regret that I have but one citizenry to fleece for my lobbyist friends.

Dissenters who object to this nonsense try to expose the folly as "robbing Peter to pay Paul," which, though accurate, isn't quite sufficient. If the theft and transfer were equivalent, Peter would have the same motivation as Paul to make sure lawmakers heard from him. They're not, however.

What it really amounts to is petty larceny from Peter, James, John, Mary, Martha, and everyone else to pay Paul. With so much at stake for Paul, you can bet he's making sure lawmakers hear from him. Meanwhile, it's just not worth everyone else's time to organize and go to the legislature.

Iraq Attacks -Defeats McCain/Al Qaeda Forces

Via Horace 


Editor’s note:  The Al Qaeda forces defeated in the first major outing for the new Iraqi army are, in actuality, controlled by the individuals that Senator John McCain met with this week.  One might ask why an American legislator, a senior member of the Senate Armed Forces Committee, would meet with terrorist groups he himself has cited as responsible for attacks on the United States and the deaths of thousands of American civilians and service men and women?
From an article by Dr. Kevin Barrett:
According to unconfirmed reports, former Republican presidential candidate and current Senator John McCain has joined al-Qaeda.  Informed sources report that McCain slipped across the Syrian border last night and joined the al-Nusra front, an Israeli-supported al-Qaeda affiliate that is waging war against Syria.”
What reasons would McCain have for telling enemies of the United States that he will arrange for military aid, aid we know will be used, not just to attack the government in Damascus, but to exterminate the Christian population of Syria as well?
This same group, the Chechen Al Qaeda affiliate, trained and supplied by the CIA, has not only kidnapped two Christian bishops but is using chemical weapons in Syria, confirmed by multiple sources and full documentation has been submitted to the United Nations.

Iraqi security forces have arrested a senior militant commander of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq network in the country’s western al-Anbar Province, officials say.
According to an Iraqi security official who spoke on condition of anonymity, Adnan al-Awesi was arrested in a sting operation Wednesday afternoon.

This arrest comes after Iraqi troops launched a large-scale operation in the country’s western desert on May 25 in an effort to clear the area of al-Qaeda militants.

Ginny Simone Special Report: Sarah Merkle: A New Face In The Gun Debate

It's High Time to 'Get US out!' of the UN

 It's High Time to 'Get US out!' of the UN

Fifty years of JBS warnings about the UN are coming true.

At the founding meeting of The John Birch Society in 1958, Robert Welch warned of a plan by our political elites to surrender American sovereignty to international organizations, such as the United Nations:

A part of that plan, of course, is to induce the gradual surrender of American sovereignty, piece by piece and step by step, to various international organizations -- of which the United Nations is the outstanding but far from the only example....

Just a few years later the JBS established its signature action project, "Get US out! of the United Nations," with the longrange goal of creating sufficient understanding about the UN to enable congressional action to end our membership in the UN.

Now fast-forward to the present. On May 28, CQ News reported that "Former Sen. John Kerry’s appointment as secretary of State has given supporters of the Law of the Sea treaty hope that he will revive a longstanding campaign for ratification...."

This is the United Nations Law of the Sea treaty (LOST) that the UN described in 2007, saying LOST's "scope is vast: it covers all ocean space, with all its uses, including navigation and overflight; all uses of its resources, living and non-living, on the high seas, on the ocean floor and beneath, on the continental shelf and in the territorial seas.... The Convention is widely recognized by the international community as the legal framework within which all activities in the oceans and the seas must be carried out."

In other words the UN is saying that the UN Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea which administers LOST would have authority over everything, everything, over, on, and under the oceans and seas of the world. If you don't agree with restricting the independence of the United States to this degree, then you're a good candidate for joining in the Get US out! project.

The JBS has recently produced an excellent new tool for convincing others that it's time to end our membership in the UN, a booklet entitled America and the United Nations.

Of course, there are many other good reasons to Get US out! There's the new Obama-backed UN Arms Trade Treaty that was designed to disarm American citizens, and that will likely be presented for ratification by the Senate sometime soon.

There's also the UN's Agenda 21, which large numbers of Americans have become alarmed about during the past couple years. Agenda 21 provides a platform for the eventual total government control over our entire material existence, all in the pursuit of the UN's definition of "sustainable development."

If you agree that it's high time that the United States should withdraw its membership in the United Nations, please contact your senators and representative and let them know you support the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2013, H.R. 75.

Airline pilot shares letter of resignation he sent to BSA

Richard D. Morales
Wayne Brock
Chief Scout Executive

Dear Mr. Brock,

It is with great sadness and disappointment I hereby tender my resignation from Troop 501 and the Boy Scout organization. The vote to allow open and avowed homosexuality into Scouting will transform it into an unprincipled and risky proposition for parents – a social experiment, I may add. Sadly, the Boy Scouts' legacy of producing great leaders has become yet another casualty of moral and corporate-driven leaders. May 23, 2013, was a sad day for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and another tragic day for an America in decline.

I have been a Scout and Scout leader for 49 years. I started as a Cub Scout and worked all the way up to earning the coveted Eagle Scout award. During that journey, I attended the National Jamborees, Philmont High Adventure Scout Reservation, Northern Tier Canoe Base, and the Florida Sea Base. I am a Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow, and a Wood Badge Instructor. For me, it was the greatest positive impact that a youth could have [along with] a solid family and a strong church.

I saw the value in Scouting so much that I encouraged my son to become a Scout and he has progressed much like his father. He is also an Eagle Scout and is currently serving our country in the U.S. Marine Corps.

I make this decision with a clear conscience knowing that it is the BSA that has become subverted, not me. I am upholding my personal integrity as the only way that I, as an individual, can take the lead by "voting with my feet" against a policy that I vehemently oppose.

I have many cherished memories of my years in Scouting, but today I feel as if an old friend has died. So long Scouting...It has been a great ride.

Good luck. Yours truly,

NC: More than 1,000 Venus' flytraps stolen

Via The Drawn Cutlass

By late May, white flowers from blooming Venus' flytraps should have covered the boggy bottom of Wilmington's Stanley Rehder Carnivorous Plant Garden.

"It literally should be just white everywhere," said Jerry Bell, a city horticulturist. 

But it wasn't. The sandy soil below was pockmarked with shallow pits ­– evidence of more than 1,000 flytraps stolen from the garden at the city's Alderman Park.

The theft was so massive it wiped out 90 percent of the flytraps in the garden, named in honor of Stanley Rehder, who tended the plants for decades before he died in October. Known as the "flytrap man," Rehder served as an informal spokesman and public advocate for the rare plants, which only grow naturally within 60 to 90 miles of Wilmington. 

After hearing about the garden's devastation, his daughter Julie Rehder felt physically sick.

"There are a lot of tears from me, but I know there are tears in heaven," Rehder said. "It's just devastating."

Since so many plants were dug out, little remains to generate seeds for future replanting, according to the city. 

"There are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people who love this place," Rehder said. "My father's legacy has been destroyed and it takes so many years for the plants to get to that point, and it is a despicable human being or beings that will take away something that is a rare part of our community."

Each plant is valued at about $20 each, so the city valued the stolen plants at $20,000.

Report: Americans Are 'Voting With Their Feet'


States that have the lowest level of government financial intrusion — e.g., taxes and regulatory obstructions — also tend to have the highest economic growth rates, a new "economic freedom index" shows.

According to data of America’s 51 largest metropolitan regions from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the top 10 areas in job growth included mostly cities in Sunbelt states, such as Houston, Dallas, Austin, Raleigh and Charlotte, while the bottom 10 featured mostly Rust Belt areas, such as St. Louis, Milwaukee and Buffalo, City Journal reported.

While employment numbers nationwide remain bleak when the underemployed or those outside the work force are factored in, some areas of America are thriving.

How to account for the disparity? According to City Journal, answer is contained in "Freedom in the 50 States," a new report from the George Washington University's Mercatus Center, which suggests geographic shifts in job growth are the result not only of policy, but also of "broader governing philosophies."

The Mercatus "economic freedom index" takes into account tax levels, government spending, tort laws, permits and licensing, labor rights and healthcare choices, among other factors.

"The results seem to imply that Americans value freedom and are willing to vote with their feet for it," said Jason Sorens, one of the authors of the Mercatus report.

Wooly mammoth blood recovered from frozen carcass, Russian scientists say


The frozen body of a 10,000 to 15,000 year old mammoth found on a remote island in the Arctic Ocean has yielded a stunning find: blood so well preserved that it flowed freely from the ancient mammal, according to Russian scientists.

Scientists with the Research Institute of Applied Ecology of the North, North-Eastern Federal University, and the Russian Geographical Society announced on Wednesday the amazing news, following the study of the carcass of a female mammoth in good preservation on Lyakhovsky Islands of Novosibirsk archipelago.
'The blood is very dark, it was found in ice cavities below the belly and when we broke these cavities with a poll pick, the blood came running out.'
- Semyon Grigoriev, the head of the expedition and chairman of the Mammoth Museum.
“The blood is very dark, it was found in ice cavities below the belly and when we broke these cavities with a poll pick, the blood came running out,” said Semyon Grigoriev, the head of the expedition and chairman of the Mammoth Museum.

“Interestingly, the temperature at the time of excavation was -7 to – 10 degrees Celsius [19.4 to 14 degrees Fahrenheit]. It may be assumed that the blood of mammoths had some cryoprotective properties.”

The muscle tissue of the frozen carcass was also stunning -- the color of fresh meat, Grigoriev said, totally unlike meat that is centuries old.

The Buck Stops Where?

So…I’m a Raging Racist?


I am so racist. It’s strong – my racism. And, I target it at not just one, but several people groups. The groups of people that I compartmentalize in my mind are…murderers, rapists, and pedophiles.

There, I said it.

Wait, what? Those groups have nothing to do with race? Every sane person should view people of those groups in a different category and consider withholding government benefits from them? Yeah. That’s what I thought.

So, the oddity is – why, for goodness’ sake, why – is the amendment to the Senate farm bill, which would ban convicted rapists, pedophiles, and murderers stirring up RACIAL controversy?

Apparently, Robert Greenstein was quoted in a number of lefty publications saying the following in his blog:

“Given incarceration patterns in the United States, the amendment would have a skewed racial impact. Poor elderly African Americans convicted of a single crime decades ago by segregated Southern juries would be among those hit.”

If you ask me, the only thing about this that could be construed as racist is his statement – not the bill itself.

AP CEO Says DOJ Seized Records For 'Thousands And Thousands' Of Phone Calls: Staffer

Via Billy

 Ap Phone Calls

 Associated Press president and chief executive Gary Pruitt told staff at a Wednesday town hall meeting that the phone records obtained by the government included "thousands and thousands" of calls in and out of the news organization, according to a staffer who attended.

The AP revealed on May 13 that the Justice Department had seized records for 20 separate phone lines over a two-month period as part of a leak investigation, but has not mentioned how many calls may have been affected.

Pruitt said Wednesday that the Obama administration acted as "judge, jury and executioner" in secretly obtaining the news organization's records, a criticism he also leveled in a recent appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation."

Decoration Day

Via Bill

 Decoration Day came and went earlier this week in Dixie; or Memorial Day everywhere else in the country. What does this holiday mean and why do we still celebrate it? We are all told that we are celebrating and honoring the men who died fighting for America in wars both foreign and domestic.

The troops of the Continental Army to those of the present day are all honored with barbecues, touch football, and of course the occasional shooting, as was seen yesterday when one of these parties ended with two dead and two wounded.

“It’s just a brawl,” the party’s host Sergio Botelo said. “It happens every other couple weeks.

Somebody just pulls out a gun and starts shooting. There’s just some things you can’t avoid. [There are] people out there who can’t control themselves.”

Why is it that a day once set aside for the Southern community to come together to honor the fallen Confederate dead now has become just another excuse for simplistic cookouts and gang-banger shootings? The answer is simple: a changing nation and changing values.

Decoration Day was originally created in 1866, after the bloodshed of the War Between the States had subsided. The Southern people, though impoverished and reeling from the loss of the war, came together to clean and lay wreaths at the graves of our beloved fallen dead, to ensure that the cause of the Confederacy would not be forgotten.. Music of the South would be played by local musicians as countless flags were placed by each headstone. The local preacher would then generally give a sermon to the community after the memorial to remind them of our Christian culture and our Christian values. A community meal would usually be held afterwards where tributes to the Confederate cause were made, and the evening generally ended with a somber singing of “Dixie,” our national anthem.

25 Tea Party Groups Sue Obama Over IRS Targeting


A lawsuit seeking "compensatory and punitive damages" from the Obama administration was filed on Wednesday by an organization representing 25 tea party and conservative groups that were targeted by the Internal Revenue Service.

"The only way to stop this flagrant and arrogant abuse of our clients' rights is to file a federal lawsuit, which we have done," Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the group filing the lawsuit, the American Center for Law and Justice, told The Hill.

"The lawsuit sends a very powerful message to the IRS and the Obama administration -- including the White House: Americans are not going to be bullied and intimidated by our government."

According to the lawsuit, filed in federal district court in Washington, the groups faced "comprehensive, pervasive, invidious and organized" targeting and were denied their First and Fifth Amendment rights.

The South 1861-1877



Newspaper Guest Commentary: The Albany Herald

James W. King
SCV Camp 141 Commander
Albany Georgia

In 1860-1861 the Federal government of the United States of America was taken over by New England radicals, fanatics, zealots and hypocrites. Most people in the South were in favor of gradual emancipation of slaves and slavery was already a dying institution before the war. There were 5 times as many abolition societies in the South as in the North. It was the Northern states of Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and New York that had brought the slaves from Africa to America by ship. They sold the slaves to the South and then their hypocritical Yankee descendants accused the South of grave moral sin for having slavery. New England had grown to prosperity based upon the slave trade.
In 1857 fanatical abolitionist Hinton Helper wrote a book “The Impending Crisis of the South”. It was a terrorist manifesto. It PROMISED (not threatened) that a massive slave rebellion would be fomented that would result in the deaths of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of Southern men, women, and children if the South did not immediately free slaves. This Terrorist Threat was of concern to all Southerners rich, poor, and in between, not just wealthy plantation owners. Southerners were aware that in the 1790 era in Santo Domingo (Haiti) virtually every white French man, woman, and child was murdered in a massive slave rebellion. In 1859 terrorist and psychopath John Brown tried to start such a rebellion. The New England radicals and fanatics financed Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry Virginia.
The Republican Party from 1854 to 1877 was what the Democratic Party is today-Socialist promoters of Social Engineering. 68 of 117 Republican Senators and Congressmen had signed a resolution based on the Helper book advocating and supporting terrorism against the South. It was the “Agitation against Slavery” and not the “Perpetuation of Slavery” that coupled with an unfair and unjust sectional tariff in combination with major Religious and Cultural differences that caused Southern secession. The Constitution of the Confederate States of America prohibited the international slave trade. The South was paying 75-85% of the cost of operating the Federal government via the tariff. 80-90% of this tax money was being kept and spent in the North. Lincoln had promised the New England Industrialists that he would raise the tariff higher if elected and he did. New England industrialists wanted the South to pay for the industrialization of America with little or no cost to themselves. The upcoming MORRILL TARIFF Tax was 40% or more and the South did not have the votes to stop its passage.
The Southern states were offered the CORWIN AMENDMENT to the U.S. Constitution on March 2, 1861 that would have made slavery permanently legal in America if they would rejoin the Union. The Southern States declined to be “TAX SLAVES” and treated as an Agricultural Colony of the Industrial North. The goal was Southern Independence. Lincoln’s “Save the Union” rant was a code for “Keep the Tax Money Coming”. The famous English writer Charles Dickens stated “The Northern onslaught against Southern slavery is a specious piece of humbug designed to mask their desire for the economic control of the Southern states”.
The “War of Northern Aggression” that followed was an epic struggle in which the South outnumbered 3 to 1 and with most manufacturing located in the North fought heroically and valiantly for INDEPENDENCE from the tyrannical, despotic, and dictatorial North. Lincoln, Sherman, Sheridan, Hunter, Custer and other Yankee officers were WAR CRIMINALS of the most vile type. They murdered, raped, tortured, robbed, stole, plundered, pillaged, and burned their way across the South. After destruction of the South, Yankee terrorists and psychopaths carried out a war of extermination against the Native American Indians. Yet modern liberals and dishonest Northern historians have attempted to claim the “Moral High Ground” for the North because slaves were freed following the war by the 13th Amendment. The Northern radicals, fanatics, zealots, and hypocrites did not free the Southern slaves for humanitarian reasons. They freed them so they could be given the right to vote and be used and manipulated to keep corrupt Northern politicians and carpetbaggers in power. Former Confederates were prohibited from voting.
So called “Reconstruction” was the plunder, pillage, and rape of the Southern states. It was the most corrupt era in American history and the treatment of white Southerners was so horrible that reconstruction was harder than the actual war on civilians. Uncle Sam’s terrorist organization, the UNION LEAGUE, ruled by white Carpetbaggers had blacks to commit atrocities against white Southerners which included burning houses and barns, shooting livestock, poisoning wells, and committing murder and rape. This led to the formation of the KKK-a police and resistance organization and after Reconstruction it resulted in Jim Crow laws based on pre-war Northern Black Codes. Northern politicians have attempted to drive a wedge between white and black Southerners since about 1830 and their efforts continue to this day.

The Chinese Are Coming, And They Want America's Pork (& everything else)

Via NC Renegade


Moments ago, news broke that in a stunning M&A move, an American pork icon - Smithfield Foods, may be acquired as soon as today by China's Shuanghui, also known as Shineway, which is China's largest pork producer. The Chinese are coming, and they want America's pork. It unclear how soon after the deal gets clearance by the Committee on Foreign Investment (if it does at all) will the US be subject to that well-honored China excess pig "clearance" strategy: floating 'em down the river.

From WSJ:
Chinese meat producer Shuanghui Group is close to a deal to acquire Smithfield Foods Inc. for between $4.5 billion and $5 billion, according to people familiar with the matter.

The sale of the Smithfield, Va.-based pork and meat producer could be announced as soon as Wednesday morning, and comes on the heels of agitation from a large shareholder to split up the company.

The bid by Shuanghui, also known as Shineway, represents a roughly 30% premium over Tuesday's close of $25.97, the people said. But a deal could be subject to review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, they said.

Smithfield's board of directors is concerned about the deal passing muster with CFIUS review, said a person familiar with the matter. The deal is structured with a reverse breakup fee in the event that the deal falls apart due to regulatory issues, the person said.

Founded in 1936, Smithfield has a market capitalization of $3.6 billion as of Tuesday's close.

Shuanghui Group, based in Henan province in central China, is the holding company for Henan Shuanghui Investment & Development Co., 000895.SZ +1.47% which is publicly listed in the Chinese city of Shenzhen. Shuanghui is China's largest pork producer, according to the company, and it sells products under the English name Shineway.

A spokeswoman for Smithfield couldn't immediately be reached.

Carroll County Nullifies Maryland Gun Control Legislation With 2nd Amendment Preservation Act

Via NC Renegade

In a victory for Maryland concealed carry, open carry, and gun Rights, Carroll County has passed resolution 884-2013, a Second Amendment Preservation Act.

“The Board reasonably believes the MFSA to be “pretended” (unconstitutional) legislation and be it further resolved that the Board, in affirmation of the Second Amendment rights of the citizens of Carroll County, herein direct that Carroll County Government will not authorize or appropriate government funds, resources, employees, agencies, contractors, buildings, detention centers or offices for the purpose of enforcing any element of the MFSA that infringes on the right of the people to keep and bear arms” [Source Legislation]

Two other counties, Cecil and Harford, have also joined Carroll County, Maryland, in nullifying new Maryland gun control legislation, which
  • Bans 45 types of Rifles
  • Bans magazines carrying more than 10 bullets, criminalizes the utilization of said magazines already owned
  • Deputizes doctors against patients, encourages reporting of gun owners to government, prohbits ownership of guns by “mentally ill” deemed so by the State
  • Requires fingerprinting for new handgun purchases
  • Requires licensing and training for new handgun purchases
What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?” -Thomas Jefferson

The Right to bear arms is the fabric upon which other Rights find their peace and defense.

An individual must be able to defend his own life to exist, thus, the Right to bear arms is self-evident, accompanying your existence.

“Forming One of the Most Splendid Empires on Which the Sun Ever Shone”

Before the 1860 political campaign many of the overstretched bands holding the United States together had been broken; the John Brown raid of 1859 convinced the South that a more perfect union with the North was not practical.  President James Buchanan’s noble speech of the time rightly noted that “Our Union rests upon public opinion, and can never be cemented by the blood of its citizens shed in civil war. If it cannot live in the affections of the people, it must one day perish.  Congress possesses many means of preserving it by conciliation; but the sword was not placed in their hands to preserve it by force.”
Bernhard Thuersam, Chairman
North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial Commission
 "The Official Website of the North Carolina WBTS Sesquicentennial"

“Forming One of the Most Splendid Empires on Which the Sun Ever Shone”

“In surveying the secession movement of the lower South, the evidence points to the conclusion that it was not a conspiracy of a few leaders, but a genuinely popular movement. It is true that minorities in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas were opposed to immediate secession.  Yet the Southern people had contemplated the probability of dissolving the Union for ten years, and had debated the pros and cons in countless debates. 

The wave of rejoicing throughout the lower South which followed the passage of the secession ordinances indicated a deep popular approval. The common people of the South, except in the mountain and hilly area which jutted into the South from Pennsylvania, agreed with the aristocrats that the victory of the Republican party was a danger to Southern society which must be met by secession.

The rise of this new [Confederate] nation was a part of that romantic nationalism of the mid-nineteenth century which was agitating Europe.  At last the dream of Southern nationality….seemed to be realized – the romantic vision expressed by Langdon Cheves ten years earlier at the Nashville Convention: “Unite and you shall form one of the most splendid empires on which the sun ever shone.”

The secession of the lower South marks the end of a long period of sectional adjustment by the fine art of compromise.  The exercise of this art is indispensible in a democratic country like the United States, containing regions with clashing economic interests and difficult race problems. 

Traces of old sectional animosity have survived below the Potomac…..Today [1949] the South remains the most self-conscious of American sections and fro years to come is likely to preserve its deep regional feeling.  Such a state of feeling may be a powerful force for good, since it resists the standardization of life in America. 

The true function of this regionalism is to preserve the rich variety of life in the United States, which is so stimulating to the development of literature, art, and intellectual activity.”

Suppose you were us.


Blazing with the fire of combat, Jackson rode onto the coaling. He congratulated Taylor and promised him the captured guns. The enemy staggered, but it didn’t break. They preserved formation even as they left the field along the road to Conrad’s store – pressured all the while by Taliaferro and Winder.

Tired after the last few days, the Southerners were not able to pursue rapidly – the infantry pounded out four or five miles and the artillery pushed a few miles farther. The spoils included about 450 prisoners, 800 muskets, one more cannon and some wagons. “Ever laconic, Jackson dispatched a one-sentence telegram to Richmond advising, ‘Through God’s blessing the enemy near Port Republic was this day routed with the loss of Six (6) pieces of his artillery.’…Long after the war Richard Taylor recalled, “I have never seen so many dead and wounded in the same limited space.

** In the painting, The Grim Harvest of War, the artist chose to show Major Wheat in uniform, but not “bloody as a butcher”. Southern casualties: 816 killed and wounded Union losses including prisoners: 800-1000 Area of the coaling: (Killing?) less than 1 sq. mile


A few days before Memorial Day in 2002, a Sons of Confederate Veterans camp received an email from a lady who apparently had been receiving the camp’s newsletters. Her letter was courteous, expressing her puzzlement and dismay at the tone of the SCV’s material and voicing her hope that Southerners could set aside their resentments, be good sports and “live in peace in this great country.”

Her post was eventually forwarded to Roger McCredie, who had not yet joined the staff of the SLRC, but was the SCV’s immediate past Chief of Heritage Defense, and McCredie answered on his own initiative. His answer is even more relevant now, over a decade later, as the runaway train of political correctness threatens to overrun Confederate history and heritage. Here is McCredie’s reply:


Dear Ms. Kinley-Ruth:

You appear to be a genuinely decent and thoughtful person, and your post is doubtless well intentioned. One of your remarks deserves to be addressed in some detail. You say, “I never know whether you folks are really talking like this because it keeps the fervor going for your re-enactments or because you are still so angry, after all these years.” Because you do seem to be an empathetic person, let me try a little role-reversal on you.

Suppose that you had been born and raised in a place whose history, culture, traditions, mindsets, and values set it as much apart from the rest of the “United States” as Switzerland is from France, or Ireland from England. Suppose you loved this place, its people and your own place in it very deeply; suppose, in fact, that you were so much a part of it that it was hard to tell where you stopped and it started.

Suppose this place you cherished had once found itself at odds with other members of the Union it had helped found; had attempted peaceably and in good faith to leave that Union, in accordance with the provisions of that Union’s very own constitution; and had instead been invaded and obliged to fight a horrific war against overwhelming odds, during which its cities were looted and destroyed, its countryside ravaged, and its civilian population robbed and brutalized. Suppose that having lost that war, your homeland was further crippled by a dozen years of corrupt and vindictive military occupation called, with supreme irony, “Reconstruction.”

Suppose that this place you love subsequently became the repository for all of America’s frustrations, the object of its ridicule and cynical exploitation, and the whipping boy for its national racial guilt trip. Suppose you had to listen to the daily litany of how your homeland was a dark and backward place populated by incestuous mongoloids. Suppose you were ridiculed for your accent, and for your unabashed love of God, place, and family.

Suppose you found your history turned inside out and your heroes vilified in order to appease the professionally offended. Suppose your children were expelled from school, ostracized and even beaten for displaying the symbol their great-great-grandfathers fought under. Suppose that some municipalities where your brave dead were buried, far from home, refused to allow their graves to be decorated, even for a few hours, with the flag they died for. And suppose that when, as an American, you objected to this very un-American treatment, you were told to sit down and shut up, or be branded a racist, a white supremacist, or even un-American yourself.

That’s a great deal of supposing, I know, but try to manage it, if only for a second. Now consider your original remark in light of it. Our experience as Americans has been painfully different from yours in some respects. On the day known as Memorial Day, this difference is particularly poignant for us, when our Confederate dead are systematically excluded from national mourning. We have – or try to have – our own Confederate Memorial Days, state by state, but often these are given no official sanction. And you ask if we are angry.

Suppose you were us.

HSLDA: North Carolina Senators Need to Hear from You this Recess

 North Carolina

Thank you for defending parental rights.

Dear North Carolina Members and Friends:

The U.S. Senate will hold hearings on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) after the end of the congressional recess on June 3. Your senators, Richard Burr and Kay Hagan, are key senators in keeping this treaty from passing and need to hear from you.

Senator Burr voted against the treaty when it came before the Senate last December. Please contact him to thank him for his vote and encourage him to stand firm in his opposition of the CRPD.

Senator Hagan voted in favor of the treaty last year, but we believe she could be persuaded to change her mind if enough constituents contact her. We ask that you contact your senators and ask them to vote against the treaty when it comes up again.

Here are three ways that you can help:

1. Please call your senators at all of their offices and urge them to oppose the UN CRPD. Phone numbers are below.

2. Both Senator Burr and Senator Hagan will be in North Carolina for the congressional recess until June 3. We urge you to meet with your senators at one of the following addresses to talk about the treaty.

Senator Burr may be contacted at the following offices:

Your message to your senators can be as simple as the following:
“I urge you to oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. 
This treaty surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN bureaucrats and will threaten parental care of children with disabilities. Our nation already has laws to protect Americans with disabilities. This treaty is unnecessary and will hurt families by giving bureaucrats the power to decide what is in the best interests of a child with disabilities, not the child’s parents.”
