You Could Lose all your Guns before 2035 under the Amnesty Bill before the Senate

We’ve written you before about the immigration amnesty bill that will be debated on the Senate floor beginning June 10.
We had just been through a hard fight to stop gun bans and registration.  And some of you may have even felt the immigration amnesty was not a “gun” issue.
But if the amnesty bill is passed, within 20 years, Washington could be as anti-gun as Albany, Hartford, and Sacramento.
This is because the bill will create at least 11,500,000 new citizens -- but probably closer to 20,000,000 -- and, if history is any guide, they will vote 71% of the time for far Left Democrats like Barack Obama.
Impartial analysts have determined that Florida, Colorado, Nevada, and probably Arizona will never vote for Republicans again. Given this, for the rest of your life, the White House will be occupied by someone who is just as anti-gun and just as liberal as Barack Obama.
Conservatives in the Senate think that they can woo new immigrants to their side of the aisle. But it is informative that, after the last amnesty bill (the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli bill signed by Ronald Reagan), those people given citizenship were LESS LIKELY to vote for more conservative and constitutional candidates.
Currently, the two political parties nationally, stand in a delicate political balance. Mitt Romney lost the presidency by 334,000 votes in four states (Florida, Ohio, Virginia and New Hampshire).
So if you add a net gain of almost 8.5 million Obama voters to the electorate, the same amnesty that turned California “blue” will probably turn the whole country anti-gun as well.  
Already, the calls for gun confiscation in “blue” and “purple” states are growing louder and louder:
  • New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that “confiscation could be an option” after the Sandy Hook shooting;
  • Likewise, an Iowa legislator said that we need to “start taking” guns from law-abiding gun owners;
  • This year, legislation in both Minnesota and Missouri would have (if enacted) forced residents to cough up their high-capacity magazines and many of their semi-automatic firearms;
  • And legislators in New Jersey were recently caught on an open microphone saying that “we needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.”
By 2035, the battle will no longer be about stopping the expansion of background checks.  Most likely, it will be about stopping the government from coming to take your guns away. And there is nothing we will be able to do about it.

CO Sheriff Maketa Responds to Tweet By CO Dems

Via NC Renegade

About 2 weeks ago, the Commierado Senate Democrats sent a tweet saying the Sheriffs who oppose the new CO gun laws side with the criminals.

Today, Sheriff Maketa responded.


On May 17, the official twitter of the CO Senate Democrats sent a tweet that stated "2day CO sheriffs stood in opposition of CO's new gun laws, but not w/law-abiding citizens, but with criminals.

#coleg#sheriffs4criminals"   This is absolutely absurd and in reality they could not have gotten it more wrong.  Most disappointing is the media has failed to hold them accountable for their misinformation.

This statement demonstrates the embarrassing ignorance of the mindless puppet making this insinuation while authoring this tweet.  I will refer to this representative of the CO Senate Democrats as a puppet, because I have no actual name. The actual definition of puppet given in Webster’s Dictionary is as follows: a person or an organization that is controlled by another person or organization.

According to KRDO, this statement was issued by the "Senate Majority Office".  Obviously, they will not identify themselves and risk being challenged.  They accuse sheriffs of siding with criminals, but sheriffs are not able to challenge their accuser because they hide the person that made the statement and unfortunately, the media will not challenge them on their statement or anonymity.

The 800 plus citizens who attended the Tuesday night fundraiser supporting the lawsuit should be outraged and offended by this tweet since it insinuates sheriffs stand by criminals.  We are standing up for the rights of law-abiding citizens and they insinuate these law-abiding citizens are criminals.  Sadly, it only strengthens the reason for recalling some of these freedom attackers.

Let's get to the facts.  This may be a new concept for this puppet as he or she fails to articulate any. 

"A Storm Is Coming"

If you want an America again that lives according to the ideals as set forth in the DoI and BoR, then you must come to grips with the fact that anyone who does not share those values needs to go.  Any person who votes for a politician who passes unconstitutional infringements is as guilty as the politician himself.  Passing a law that infringes your access to 2A is NOT a "Legitimate difference of political opinion..."  Voting for a politician who promises to ignore the Constitution is NOT "Free Speech" - it is action taken to undermine the Liberty intended by our Founders.  It is Treason. 

Oath Keepers who arrest a person for pot are not Patriots.  When that county LEO is praised as an Oath Keeper, yet he adds a gun charge on a kid for carrying, the hypocrisy is staggering.  Anyone who played any role in facilitating the door-to-door searches in Boston in violation of 4A - from the guy kicking in the door to the dispatcher who directs troops to the REMF who gave the order - is guilty of willful violation of their oath.

Republicans who look for a way to "Make Social Security stronger..." are not Patriots - they advocate the forcible theft from you of the fruits of your labor.  They are the Enemies of Liberty.

It really is that simple.

I hope you recognize how many people in your daily life will accept, advocate, and even help infringe your Rightful Liberty.  I hope you can draw a hard line and treat them accordingly.

"One of the most gifted and remarkable men North America has ever produced"


On 3 June 1808 was born in Christian County, Kentucky Jefferson Finis Davis who became the first president of the Confederacy. A man of amazing talents, intellect, & courage, he graduated from West Point in 1828 and was assigned to Wisconsin. Although he was absent during the Black Hawk War in 1832, his Colonel, Zachary Taylor, assigned him to escort Black Hawk to prison. The Indian later noted in his autobiography the kindness Davis showed him.

At Ft. Crawford Davis fell in love with his commandant's daughter, Sarah Knox Taylor, but Taylor refused to give his permission for Davis to marry her because he didn't want his daughter to marry a military man. Davis resigned and married her anyway. He moved to Mississippi where his brother gave him land. After three months of marriage, Sarah died of malaria at age 25. At the same time Davis nearly succumbed to the disease. For 8 years he became a recluse, worshipping his wife's memory. In 1842 he began his career in Mississippi Politics, and married again in 1845 to Varina Banks Howell, by whom he had six children.

In 1846 Davis raised a volunteer regiment and led it into the Mexican War, where he acquitted himself bravely. In 1847 he was appointed to fill an empty US Senate seat, where, ironically, he became chairman of the Committee on Military Affairs. In 1853 Pres. Franklin Pierce appointed him Secretary of War, in which office he helped to modernize the very army his country would be fighting only a few years later.

He was elected president of the new Confederacy. Against all the carpers who criticized him, after the war Robert E. Lee said, "You can always say that few people could have done better than Mr. Davis. I know of none that could have done as well."

After the war all the spite of the Radical Republicans was vented on Davis, who was arrested in Georgia and imprisoned at Fortress Monroe. When they placed him in irons it took four men to hold him down. He was indicted for treason but never brought to trial, as the yankee government knew they could never convict him since secession was both legal and constitutional. Only after two years was he released. He died in 1889.

Jefferson Davis was one of the most gifted and remarkable men North America has ever produced, and one of the most thoroughly Christian. I heartily recommend Felicity Allen's biography, Jefferson Davis, Unconquerable Heart. It is the spellbinding story of a great and noble hero.

Judge Nelson made no comment on the beating of the homeless man.  She had a case to misdirect, and she wasn't about to quibble over something as insignificant as justice, says Jack Cashill in this article, Trayvon, George, and the Homeless Man, at American Thinker.

The State has thus known since that phone was forensically examined shortly after Martin's death that Martin had a history of committing crimes against other people, specifically, beating up other people, the precise event that would exonerate Zimmerman in that they had in their possession video evidence of him doing exactly that to another individual.

“I Don’t Think Obama is Going to Finish His Second Term Without the Bottom Dropping Out”

Via avordvet

One year ago this month it was revealed that throughout the course of this crisis some 40% of all wealth in America had been vaporized. It was a stunning number to be sure, and one that many analysts predicted would reverse as the Bernanke/Obama recovery took hold. Now, a full year on, the news has not gotten any better. It’s gotten much, much worse. According to a new report, the average American household has lost 55% of their net worth since the onset of the recession in 2008.

Many are likely holding to the belief that our benevolent government politicians and financial leaders have taken the necessary steps to turn this economy around.
But they’d be wrong.

The next wave of crisis is imminent and the end result will be a total wipe out for Americans:

Benghazi Terrorists: ‘Dr. Morsi Sent Us’


The terrorist attack in Benghazi is far more disturbing than previously thought. Although it has not been reported in the U.S. media, the possibility exists that the Egyptian government may have played an operational role in the attack. YouTube videos of the terrorist strike raise a serious problem that only an Arabic speaker would detect: some of the terrorists are speaking in the Egyptian dialect of the Arabic language.

Indeed, one of the videos shot with a cell phone of one of the attackers emerged around the time four Americans were killed. It shows a mob approaching the American compound under siege, clearly telling the terrorists in the dialect of Upper Egypt: “Mahadesh, mahadesh yermi, Dr. Morsi ba`atna” — which translates to: “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot, Dr. Morsi sent us.”

The words “Mahadesh yermi” for “don’t shoot” are characteristically spoken in Egyptian Arabic, while Libyans from Benghazi would say, “Matermey” for “don’t shoot.”

“Dr. Morsi” refers, of course, to president Mohamed Morsi of Egypt. The name Morsi is Egyptian and does not exist in any other Arabic speaking country.

The Egyptian regime’s connection to Benghazi also helps explain why it denied U.S. the ability to interrogate Abo Ahmed, an Egyptian suspect in the terrorist attack.

UNC to rape victim: “Rape is like football and if you look back on the game ... what would you do differently in that situation?”


Maybe this explains blindness to the need for effective self-defense?



Currently under investigation for under-reporting campus violent crime, new reports from rape victims indicate UNC leaders see sexual assaults as a game. According to one UNC rape victim, she was advised by an administrator that,

Rape is like football and if you look back on the game ... what would you do differently in that situation?”
So Tom Ross’ UNC blames the victim for violent crime? Evidence the UNC system sees the cause of violence as attributable to the victim makes understanding opposition to effective self-defense easier. Why would we need to defend ourselves when we are responsible for the problem to begin with?

Maybe this is why Tom Ross has demanded that UNC Chancellors and Police Chiefs condemn HB 937? Concealed carry permittees cannot be trusted to keep handguns locked in cars to defend themselves while travelling to and from campus?
It is past time for law-abiding gun owners to make it perfectly clear to UNC authorities that we will no longer stand for this type of victim defamation. We are not responsible for violent crime, violent criminals are, along with those who help them by maintaining dangerous 'Gun Free Zones' of defenselessness.

Female Israeli Soldiers Disciplined For Racy Facebook Photos

Via Ryan


The Israeli military said Sunday that it has disciplined a group of female soldiers who posed for photos in underwear and combat gear and posted the images on Facebook.

The incident was the latest in a string of episodes involving young Israeli soldiers on social media that have drawn reprimand from the military.

Israeli news site Walla said the women were new recruits stationed on a base in southern Israel. One picture showed the soldiers removing their fatigue uniforms to expose their underwear and back sides. In another, five women posed in what appeared to be a barracks room, dressed only in helmets and a small amount of combat equipment. The faces of the soldiers were blurred in the photos.

Obama's Appeasement of China, Japan Is Wrecking Recovery


Tuesday, the Commerce Department is expected to report the April deficit on international trade in goods and services was $41.2 billion, up from $24.9 billion when the economic recovery began.

The Obama administration’s ill-conceived energy policies and appeasement of China and Japan are responsible for this jump in the trade gap and the slow pace of economic recovery.

Household spending has recovered but too many consumer dollars pay for imported oil and consumer goods and cars from China and Japan. Whereas consumer spending is up 16 percent, the trade gap has jumped 36 percent.

Businesses, consequently, remain pessimistic about demand in the U.S. market and reluctant to invest. With the majority of U.S. businesses subject to higher personal, as opposed to corporate rates, more onerous and costly regulations and paying more for employee healthcare, they remain reluctant to hire and continue to offshore jobs.

Wonderful pictures.
From Legend to Reality
Thonis-Heracleion (the Egyptian and Greek names of the city) is a city lost between legend and reality. Before the foundation of Alexandria in 331 BC, the city knew glorious times as the obligatory port of entry to Egypt for all ships coming from the Greek world. It had also a religious importance because of the temple of Amun, which played an important role in rites associated with dynasty continuity. The city was founded probably around the 8th century BC, underwent diverse natural catastrophes, and finally sunk entirely into the depths of the Mediterranean in the 8th century AD.  

Prior to its discovery in 2000 by the IEASM, no trace of Thonis-Heracleion had been found. Its name was almost razed from the memory of mankind, only preserved in ancient classic texts and rare inscriptions found on land by archaeologists. The Greek historian Herodotus (5th century BC) tells us of a great temple that was built where the famous hero Herakles first set foot on to Egypt. He also reports of Helen’s visit to Heracleion with her lover Paris before the Trojan War. More than four centuries after Herodotus’ visit to Egypt, the geographer Strabo observed that the city of Heracleion, which possessed the temple of Herakles, is located straight to the east of Canopus at the mouth of the Canopic branch of the River Nile.

NC: Special Report: Unmasking Hidden Agendas

Glen Bradley came to our first PATCON and I believe he is a good man.

The North Carolina Republican Party is about to be rocked to its foundations.

Evidence is building that political leaders alien to the Republican platform and traditions have been working undercover to subvert the traditional standards for recruitment of young people into the Party.

They are the future of the GOP – and if loyalties, personal character and motives are compromised, it will be to the peril of the Party at large.

Here’s some of the disturbing information we uncovered in discussions with loyal Republican stalwarts who agreed to cooperate upon assurance of anonymity:

VS: What are you concerned about? This sounds like quite an incendiary issue, coming on the eve of the 2013 North Carolina Republican Party convention.


I would say we are very concerned about certain people who are looking to welcome radical factions into our Party, some of whom even condone violence, like the OCCUPY movement. The ring leaders of this effort to invade the GOP are active with OCCUPY, but are masquerading as traditional conservatives, as well as Libertarians, then working to link radicals to the Tea Party. They claim that OCCUPY and the Tea Party have a lot in common, which they do not. It’s a deceitful attemp to radicalize the Tea Party and even the conservative North Carolina Republican Party. We are urgently suggesting that these destructive attempts be exposed and rejected. These are dangerous precedents that most in our Party somehow are not aware of.

VS: How did this information come to light?

Obama Inc. Sues Trucking Company for Firing Muslim Drivers Who Refused to Deliver Alcohol

Via avordvet

Considering the sheer number of things that Islam bans (pork, alcohol, movies, music, chess, kites, etc…) a Muslim driver who refuses to drive a truck containing them is mostly useless.

When Muslim taxi drivers refused to drive passengers with seeing eye dogs or who carried bottles of alcohol, there was an uproar. But now Obama Inc. is using to claim that Muslim discrimination is a civil right that employers must accommodate.
Star Transport, Inc., a trucking company based in Morton, Ill., violated federal law by failing to accommodate two employees because of their religion, Islam, and discharging them, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit filed today.
The lawsuit alleged that Star Transport refused to provide two employees with an accommodation of their religious beliefs when it terminated their employment because they refused to deliver alcohol.

Baptists plan exodus from Boy Scouts


For Southern Baptist pastor Tim Reed, it was Scripture versus the Scouts.

“God’s word explicitly says homosexuality is a choice, a sin,” said Reed, pastor of First Baptist Church of Gravel Ridge in Jacksonville, Arkansas.

So when the Boy Scouts of America voted to lift its ban on openly gay youths on May 24, Reed said the church had no choice but to cut its charter with Troop 542.

“It’s not a hate thing here,” Reed told CNN affiliate Fox 16. “It’s a moral stance we must take as a Southern Baptist church.”

Southern Baptist leaders say Reed is not alone.

Baptist churches sponsor nearly 4,000 Scout units representing more than 100,000 youths, according to the Boy Scouts of America.

That number could drop precipitously.

The Southern Baptist Convention, the country’s largest Protestant denomination, will soon urge its 45,000 congregations and 16 million members to cut ties with the Scouts, according to church leaders.

Jefferson Davis, Born 3 June 1808

Via Bernhard

American Statesman, Soldier, Senator, Secretary of War, President

A West Point graduate, Davis distinguished himself in the Mexican-American War as a colonel of the Mississippi Rifles volunteer regiment, and was the United States Secretary of War under President Franklin Pierce. Both before and after his time in the Pierce Administration, he served as a US Senator from Mississippi. As senator he argued against secession but believed each State was sovereign and had an unquestionable and constitutional right to secede from the voluntary Union of the Founders, just as they had seceded from England seeking political liberty.  Davis resigned from the Senate in January 1861 after receiving word that his State of Mississippi had voted to leave the voluntary Union.  Davis explained his actions saying:

“[To] me the sovereignty of the State was paramount to the sovereignty of the Union. And I held my seat in the Senate until Mississippi seceded and called upon me to follow and defend her. Then I sorrowfully resigned the position in which my State had placed me and in which I could no longer represent her, and accepted the new work. I was on my way to Montgomery when I received, much to my regret, the message that I had been elected provisional President of the Confederate States of America.”

Davis was a great and patriotic American who tried to save the old constitutional republic from abolitionist revolutionaries, and who left the old union with the old constitution intact to form a "more perfect Union" and with the consent of the governed. He contended that he would rather be out of the Union with the Constitution than to be in the Union without the Constitution. Davis remarked in July 1864:

"I tried in all my power to avert this war. I saw it coming, and for 12 years, I worked night and day to prevent it, but I could not.  The North was mad and blind; it would not let us govern ourselves, and so the war came, and now it must go on till the last man of this generation falls in his tracks, and his children seize the musket and fight our battle, unless you acknowledge our right to self-government.  

We are not fighting for slavery. We are fighting for Independence, and that, or extermination, we will have....Slavery never was an essential element.  It was the only means of bringing other conflicting elements to an earlier culmination.  It fired the musket which was already capped and loaded.  There are essential differences between the North and the South that will, however this war may end, make them two nations.”

Reminded during the war of the destruction of his Mississippi plantations by occupying Northern troops, we dismissed it as the cost of war, yet confessed that he pitied his poor Negroes, who had been driven off by those troops and abandoned to misery or ruin.  He resisted arming the slaves as they were not trained as soldiers, were needed to raise food for the armies in the field, and he would not use them as mercenaries and cannon-fodder as Lincoln was doing to avoid conscripting unwilling white Northerners.

At the end of the War, when a fellow traveler remarked that the cause of the Confederates was lost. Davis replied:

“It appears so. But the principle for which we contended is bound to reassert itself, though it may be at another time and in another form.”  

We may be experiencing his prediction now in the midst of State sovereignty resolutions and 10th Amendment reaffirmations across the country. In 1881, Davis was critical of the Gilded Age corruption and ignorance of the United States Constitution and remarked:

“Of what value then are paper constitutions and oaths binding officers to their preservation, if there is not intelligence enough in the people to discern the violations; and virtue enough to resist the violators?” 

Davis was guilty of no treason and demanded a fair trial in order to argue the constitutionality of the South’s actions in 1860-1861. This was denied by his tormenters, the reason was revealed by Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, Salmon P. Chase, in 1867. Chase admitted that:

"If you bring these leaders to trial, it will condemn the North, for by the Constitution, secession is not a rebellion. His [Jefferson Davis] capture was a mistake. His trial will be a greater one. We cannot convict him of treason."

President Davis died on December 6, 1889

Whom the Gods Would Destroy

Mike Scruggs

The Greeks had a saying, often attributed to the playwright Euripides (480-406 BC), that seems appropriate to the Schumer-Rubio amnesty and immigration surge bill, S.477, to be debated next week on the floor of the U.S. Senate:  

“Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.”

Actually, this is a paraphrase by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. A closer approximation to Euripides would be:

“Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first deprives of their senses.”

I am writing this article because I believe the Schumer-Rubio bill is extraordinarily foolish, and if passed will condemn the country to rapid economic, cultural, and political destruction.

Schumer-Rubio or the Gang-of-Eight bill will give amnesty to 11.5 million illegal immigrants and result in another 22 million other legal immigrants and guest-workers coming to the U.S. in the next ten years. Having looked at the bill and studied the 1986 Amnesty, I believe these numbers are very conservative. Senator Sessions (R, AL), the senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee believes the bill will result in at least 50 million new immigrants within ten years. Based on my own analysis, I believe a figure of 60 million is more likely. Amnesties beget more amnesties and accelerate both legal and illegal immigration. Based on the 1986 amnesty, we could have two more illegal immigrants for every amnesty given over the first decade.

Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation has estimated the cost of amnesty for the 11.5 unlawful immigrants would add $6.3 Trillion to our national debt of $16.5 Trillion over the next 50 years. But once amnesty is done, the political and liberal media pressure to accelerate the timetable of benefits and citizenship to newly amnestied illegals will be immense. It would have a high probability of being accelerated by court order rather than additional legislation. Both acceleration plans may be a part of the Democratic strategy even now.  So Rector’s $6.3 Trillion cost, terrible as it is, may far underestimate the extent of a national economic and fiscal train-wreck. Not just 11.5 million, but 34 to 50 or 60 million new immigrants would push the U.S. toward unthinkable inflation rates and social chaos.  Any U.S. Senator or House Member who could vote for this would certainly have been deprived of their intellectual and moral senses.

Only 4.0 million immigrants went through Ellis Island from 1890 to 1950, yet the Schumer-Rubio immigration folly bill would bring in 34 to 50 million immigrants in a single decade from 2013 to 2023. Whom the gods would destroy, they first deprive of common and moral sense!

Here are some statistics from the Heritage Foundation Report, based on 2010 BLS numbers that make our national immigration folly and fiscal irresponsibility easier to understand. The figures given are for benefits received per household versus taxes paid.  Benefits include government entitlements plus a share of services for education, law enforcement, public utilities, etc. according to National Academy of Sciences analysis standards. The Net Household Deficit for unlawful immigrants is staggering.

Unlawful Immigrants

Annual Household Benefits:   $24,721

Less Taxes Paid                                                10,344

Net Household Deficit                                   $14,387   


Annual Household Benefits:  $31,226
Less Taxes Paid                                                30,916

Net Household Deficit                                   $     310

Additional benefits for amnestied immigrants that come with legal status would amount to an irreversible and ticking fiscal time-bomb. Two-thirds of their income would have to be paid in taxes to reach the fiscal breakeven point.

The main reason for the large Net Household Deficit for unlawful immigrants seems to be education and skill level. Here is a comparison of educational levels for household heads of unlawful immigrant and non-immigrant households:

Illegals     Non-immigrants
High School not completed    51 %         10 %
High School completion         27 %         30 %
Some College                         13 %         30 %
College degree or more          10 %         31 %

In both cases, only those households headed by a person with a college degree or more paid more taxes than benefits received. Hence we cannot really afford our current level of government spending even for natives, much less for low-skilled immigrants. Yet even with 21 million Americans unable to find a full-time job, the U.S. Chamber and their allied business associations keep calling for more cheap labor. This has been going on for at least 40 years, and Congress has not had the guts to tighten the pipeline that keeps driving budget deficits higher and the wages and living standards of native-born and  naturalized American workers down.

Many politicians believe that anyone who is gainfully employed and pays taxes is a positive to the economy. Heritage Foundation’s Rector points out that these statistics prove this is far from the truth. As economist Milton Friedman warned, high immigration and high public benefits are in dramatic opposition. Amnesty would result in Social Security and Medicare going broke earlier.

Higher legal immigration and more and bigger guest-worker programs will not solve our immigration problems. Bringing in millions of immigrants with little education and low skills hurts our native-born and legal immigrant poor by driving down wages and reducing their job opportunities.

The demand for cheaper labor is not confined to lower skills. Business lobbying for and hiring of foreign job applicants is spreading like wildfire. Yet a Mckinsey Consulting survey indicates that less than half of college graduates can find a job in their major field. Even in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math fields, McKinsey found that 25 percent of graduates were in jobs that did not require a college degree.

Congress needs to help American workers and graduates and stop catering to cheap labor lobbyists.

No Republican that votes for Schumer-Rubio or its equivalent in the House should survive their next primary. 

How to make a BIG bomb


A former radicalized Muslim-turned-Christian is expressing alarm that jihadists are posting videos on the Internet that show how to build powerful bombs capable of bringing down buildings.

The alert comes from Walid Shoebat, a former member of the Palestine Liberation Organization who engaged in terror attacks.

“‘How to Make Massive Roadside Bombs’ – you heard it right, and forget exploding pressure cookers,” he told WND, referencing the relatively small explosives used by Muslim terrorists to kill and maim innocent bystanders at the Boston Marathon.

“As unbelievable as it sounds, Al-Jazeera TV, in collaboration with the Free Syrian Army, provided an exclusive training session on how to make an improvised explosive device,” he said.

IEDs were used extensively against U.S.-led coalition forces, causing about 63 percent of coalition deaths in Iraq, Shoebat noted.

He said the demonstration is not for “any small version IED, but the massive type that brings down large buildings and causes high death toll.”

Issa warns Holder not to take 'perjury lightly’


House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) strongly suggested that Attorney General Eric Holder perjured himself before a congressional panel investigating the Justice Department's treatment of reporters.

In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," Issa warned Holder not to "use perjury lightly" when discussing his approval of a search warrant for the emails of Fox News reporter James Rosen.

"It's hard to have confidence in what this attorney general says or what his people say," Issa said Sunday.

The Justice Department (DOJ) is investigating Rosen for allegedly soliciting classified information from a government source.

DOJ has denied that Holder lied to the House Judiciary Committee when he said that he was never involved in the "potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material."

On CNN Sunday, Issa said Holder's statement would be considered a lie by the average person given his approval of a search warrant for Rosen's emails.

Luther Campbell is outraged at racists: Himself.

When rap icon Luther Campbell talks, people listen.

Campbell was a member of 2 Live Crew, a bawdy hip hip group now mainly remembered for a stint at the Supreme Court.

Well, maybe we should not give total short shrift to Mr. Campbell’s earlier artistic creations. After all, who could forget such time honored contributions to the American songbook as “Me So Horney” and “Pop That Pussy.” And don’t forget “Face down ass up.”

Now Campbell is back: “outraged at the treatment of African Americans” during Black Beach Week near his hometown of Miami.

After more than ten years of violence and chaos and mayhem and people hurt and property destroyed, Miami Beach police finally figured it out: They had to turn the town into a police state. Even so, more than 400 people got arrested over the Memorial Day weekend.

Compare with with the 20 people arrested for a bigger crowd during the same time period at the Indy 500.


Campbell is pissed: From a column in the Miami New Times, Campbell rails against the racists who
“racially profile people who are coming down here to have a good time.”
“It’s because there are more police on the street bent on locking people up for insignificant crimes that are ignored except during the last weekend in May.”
“All these measures are designed to make African-Americans feel uncomfortable so they don’t come back next year.”
No doubt the locals hate Black Beach Week. They say the crime, mayhem and mountains of trash ruin their town.

Far worse than any other event.

The Mayor of Miami Beach said Black Beach Week turned his town into a “war zone.”

Doug Giles of Town Hall described some of the action of year’s past:
“Yes, during this year’s festivities the Urban Beach Weekers trashed the historic Art Deco streets, screamed, yelled and blasted music 24/7, and then, of course, there’s the attempted murder of our local police. Yep, one of the ‘tourists’ tried to run over several cops with his vehicle and then shot at them, at which point a gunfight ensued between one of these winners and Miami’s cops that made anything John Yoo has produced look lame.”

Discover the hidden features and intricate interior of this cabinet.

One of the finest achievements of European furniture making, this cabinet is the most important product from Abraham (1711--1793) and David Roentgen's (1743--1807) workshop. A writing cabinet crowned with a chiming clock, it features finely designed marquetry panels and elaborate mechanisms that allow for doors and drawers to be opened automatically at the touch of a button. Owned by King Frederick William II, the Berlin cabinet is uniquely remarkable for its ornate decoration, mechanical complexity, and sheer size.

This cabinet is from Kunstgewerbemuseum, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, and is on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in the exhibition Extravagant Inventions: The Princely Furniture of the Roentgens:

Gee, Nanny Bloomberg's gun control sure is working swell.........

Violence surged like the mercury Sunday, with three more fatalities from gun violence — and eight others wounded in shootings — bringing the total number of bullet-riddled in the city to 25 in less than 48 hours.

Only Staten Island was safe from the wide-ranging spray of gunfire and sickening weekend bloodshed. At least 12 people were blasted in Brooklyn, eight in the Bronx and another four in Queens. The sole person shot in Manhattan took several slugs to the chest and perished in broad daylight.

Sunday’s first fatality was Ivan Martinez, 21, who was approached around 3:25 a.m. by a 20-year-old gunman and a woman at E. 139th St. near Brook Ave. in the Bronx, police said.
The gunman shot Martinez once in the head and ran off with the woman.
