Putin doubles down: Time for Obama to throw in the towel: It's over

Via NC Renegade


During his recent visit to London and meeting with British Prime Minister Cameron, President Putin passed on a message to the US and France in response to their recent announcement that they will arm the [Al Nusrah] fighters in Syria.

As Russia is a sovereign nation dealing with the sovereign, legitimate government of Syria, some new arms which have never left Russia before [never previously deployed in Syria] will be delivered to the Syrian military. 

The Patriot Missiles will be hit and repealed with S 300 SAM [already installed in Syria]. Putin also threatened to deliver the more advanced S400 anti-aircraft missiles (see image below) far superior to the Patriot missiles and ranked as the World’s most advanced air defense system.

He added that Russia will also supply Syria with state-of –the-art 24-Barrell rocket launchers which have a range of 60 km ranked as the most developed artillery weapon of its kind.(see video below)

He added that Russia will supply 400 of these launchers which will be able to destroy all targets around Syria’s borders.

Truth and Treason

 "At a press conference to discuss the accusations, an N.S.A. spokesman surprised observers by announcing the spying charges against Mr. Snowden with a totally straight face.

“These charges send a clear message,” the spokesman said. “In the United States, you can’t spy on people.”

Seemingly not kidding, the spokesman went on to discuss another charge against Mr. Snowden—the theft of government documents: “The American people have the right to assume that their private documents will remain private and won’t be collected by someone in the government for his own purposes.”

“Only by bringing Mr. Snowden to justice can we safeguard the most precious of American rights: privacy,” added the spokesman, apparently serious."

Tragedy and Farce

Via Terry

Fleshing out a Twitter thought from last night. I have a killer idea for a television series. Radical congressmen and a radical administration declare martial law on the heartland of the nation, most of whose citizens have been deemed "the enemy." Federal shock troops fan out to almost every town. The first four Amendments are curtailed. Freedom of speech is subdued. Gun ownership is discouraged. Troops are quartered in citizens' homes. Illegal searches and seizures are rampant. Property is confiscated.

Most of the humble, Tea Party type citizenry are stripped of their right to vote, and to run for office. A smaller group, who are for the most part illiterate, and ignorant of American history, vote themselves into office, there to plunder federal coffers with the radical congressmen. Those citizens who dare to strike back, usually under cover of darkness for protection, are labeled terrorists, and hunted down. The reign of terror lasts for 12 years.

Centinel article about the act establishing the first United States copper penny 

By George Washington

Friday, January 8, 1790 


Mr. Wynkoop appeared this day, and took his seat.
The House being assembled, adjourned to the Senate Chamber. At 11 o'clock, The President of the United States, attended by his Aids, and Secretary, was received by the two Houses of Congress in the Senate Chamber, when he was pleased to make the following speech:

Joseph Weekley: Self-Pitying Stormtrooper

Via Horace 

Pity him gone.

 “It was my gun that shot and killed a 7-year-old girl,” insists Detroit resident Joseph Weekley, who took part in a fatal home invasion on May 17, 2010. This apparent admission is actually an evasion, in that it assigns blame to an inanimate instrument, rather than the individual who wielded it. Weekley also insists that he didn’t intend to pull the trigger, and has no knowledge of doing so, and that he didn’t realize the child was dead until he heard a “high-pitched moan” coming from beneath a pile of clothes. 

The only other eyewitness to the killing of Aiyana Stanley-Jones is Mertila Jones, the slain child’s grandmother. Weekley has claimed that Jones was to blame for the killing of her granddaughter, because the woman supposedly tried to swipe the MP-5 sub-machine gun from the hands of the assailant who had just burst into her home at midnight. That claim was contradicted by fellow home invader Shawn Stallard, who was right behind Weekley when the shooting took place and didn’t see a struggle between Weekley and Jones. 

Weekley has also said that he initially thought that the shot had been fired by one of his comrades. Oh, sure, he grudgingly admits, it may have been his finger that pulled the trigger -- but someone or something else is at fault. In any case, he insists that he’s not to blame – that despite the fact that Aiyana was left to die in a pool of blood, that he, the shooter, is the real victim.

“I just feel devastated and just depressed,” Weekley sobbed from the witness stand during his involuntary manslaughter trial. “Every day this replays in my head. There’s nothing else I could have done differently.”

If it weren’t for the fact that Weekley’s home invasion crew bore the insignia of the criminal syndicate claiming a monopoly on the legitimate use of force within Detroit, he would have quickly been found guilty. In fact, he most likely would have faced a charge of aggravated murder, rather than involuntary manslaughter. 

The trial ended in a hung jury – not because the facts were in serious dispute, but because Weekley belongs to that sanctified caste that exercises the state-conferred power of discretionary killing. He was, and remains, a member of the Detroit Police Department’s Special Reaction Team (SRT), which staged – I’m using the word in its theatrical sense – a midnight raid on the home where Aiyana was sleeping.

The Ballad of The Sam Davis Camp.

Via  Shannon

  Campers were broken up into groups and asked to write a stanza about camp to be sung to the tune of Oh! Susanna. This is what they came up with.

The Ballad of the Sam Davis Youth Camp- written by 2013 campers,
Chorus by Stan Clardy, to the tune of Oh! Susanna.

We learned to fire the cannons at the heathen Yankee hoard
We learned of Ol’ Sam Davis and we never did get bored.
We learned how to cast bullets and
We learned the Rebel Yell.
Our Honored Flag flies high and proud
We’ll never let it fail.

All around us, such a sight to see
We’re here at the Sam Davis Camp
To learn our History.

We shot them cardboard Yankees
With Southern lead and shot
Then patched them up with duct tape
To shoot them on the spot.

All around us, such a sight to see
We’re here at the Sam Davis Camp
To learn our History.

I come from somewhere in the South
And hold my head up high
Above the clouds of tyranny
From Northerners who lie
I saw more facial hair this week
Than in Duck Dynasty
And I trained to kill some Yankees
With my musket next to me.

All around us, such a sight to see
We’re here at the Sam Davis Camp
To learn our History.



Reminds me of mother:)

Confederate Memorial Day - 05, 10, 1911 (My Grandfather & Mother)

To hear real Confederates give the Rebel Yell was a bloodcurdling sound. Richard Bales group's rendering of this is like a lullaby in comparison. To hear our own valiant, brave soldiers made us want to pick up a gun and kill the first Yankee in sight.

Obama administration cuts back oil shale development

Controversy is heating up over an administration plan to drastically reduce the amount of federal lands available for oil shale development in the American West.

The Bush administration had set aside 1.3 million acres for oil shale and tar sands development  in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. The new Bureau of Land Management plan cuts that amount by two-thirds, down to 700,000 acres, a decision that has prompted industry outrage.

"What they basically did was make it so that nobody is going to want to spend money going after oil shale on federal government lands," said Dan Kish, Senior Vice President of Institute for Energy Research.

Rand Paul Seizes the Moment

 Image: Rich Lowry: Rand Paul Seizes the Moment

You won't find him on any Federal Election Commission disclosure forms, but Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is the biggest in-kind donor to the incipient Rand Paul for president campaign.

Whatever its merits, the National Security Agency meta-data program couldn't be better fashioned to play into fears of the government. Is it vast? Yes. Secret? Check. Raise profound questions about privacy? Uh-huh.

 This is the kind of issue Rand Paul was born and (literally) raised to raise holy hell over. The NSA leak came on the heels of revelations that the Internal Revenue Service was singling out tea-party groups for extra scrutiny, and on the heels of the Associated Press and James Rosen investigations.

Add in the gun-control fight earlier this year and Paul is nearly 4-for-4 in fights sticking up, in his view, for the first four amendments of the Bill of Rights. The only thing missing is the third, because no one has proposed quartering of troops in our homes — yet.

Madonna (Really): 'Guns Don't Kill People, People Kill People


There's no word on whether Elizabeth Vargas had to receive smelling salts during her interview of Madonna which appeared on "Good Morning America." But it wouldn't be a surprise if she did.

When the ABC reporter, whose interview was relayed by the network's Sabrina Parise and posted at, questioned the diva's use of gun choreography in her current tour's stage show, she certainly expected a robust defense. But she probably didn't expect a trip into the land of the Second Amendment. Nonetheless, that's what happened (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary; HT Hot Air; bolds are

... (the) choreography drew criticism with the first act of her tour relying heavily on the use of guns. Despite that criticism, Madonna says she never would have left that part out of her MDNA Tour documentary.
"That would be like asking people to not have guns in action movies," she said. "I mean the thing is, guns don't kill people, people kill people. That whole first section of the show is like an action movie, and I was playing a super vixen who wanted revenge."
Madonna even gave a statement that she does not condone violence, and that her work is art and nothing more
"But I know there was several movies that delayed release because of the shootings, for example, at Sandy Hook Elementary school," Vargas said.
"Well that's not going to change the situation," Madonna replied. "This all comes from fear and ignorance, and people not really raising their children, or not paying attention to what's going on."

Is. Ms. Alabama proof that Southern society has been fully converted to Northern mindset?


2013 Miss USA Competition - Show

It wasn’t that long ago that a wave of secession petitions bombarded the WhiteHouse.Gov website. It was quite the inspiration that started off with one man from Louisiana and spread like wildfire to all former 13 Confederate states. This act gave hope to those who wish to maintain their Southern Heritage, Culture, Independence and Dignity but one quote from a Southern Belle during last night’s Miss USA pageant makes this writer now question if we can ever salvage any of our culture.

During last night’s contest actress Wendy Malick asked Miss Alabama , Mary Margaret McCord, the following question. ( From the Beta Beat blog ):

“Government tracking of phone records has been in the news lately. Is this an invasion of privacy, or necessary to keep our country safe? Why or why not?”

To which Ms. Alabama replied:

““I think the society that we live in today, it’s sad that we go to the movies, or to the airport, or even to the mall, that we have to worry about our safety. So I would rather someone track my telephone messages and feel safe wherever I go, than feel like they’re encroaching on my privacy.”

After giving her answer the crowd cheered. It is a sad thing to witness. Supposedly one of the South’s best and brightest stating that she is willing to give up her privacy, her freedom to “feel” safe. It is even sadder when one wonders if this is how the majority of Southerner’s feel, especially when you think  that 150 years ago Southerners were willing to risk everything, their lives, their property and their wealth to hold steadfast to what they believed was the original intent of the Constitution by our Founding Fathers who authored it.

A former National Security Agency contractor wanted by the United States for revealing highly classified surveillance programs has been allowed to leave for a "third country" because a U.S. extradition request did not fully comply with Hong Kong law, the territory's government said Sunday.

An Aeroflot flight from Hong Kong believed to be carrying Edward Snowden landed in Moscow. 

Russia's state ITAR-Tass news agency cited an unnamed Aeroflot airline official as saying Snowden was on Flight SU213, which landed on Sunday afternoon in Moscow. The report said he intended to fly to Cuba on Monday and then on to Caracas, Venezuela.

“Jim Crow” Law Origins


Though the author below cites Tennessee’s 1881 legislation as the first of the “Jim Crow” type, New York in 1821 enfranchised all adult white male citizens, but kept black men in a politically subordinate caste with a $250 property-holding requirement for voting.  Leading this initiative was future president Martin Van Buren who argued that “democracy only made sense with racial exclusion.”  Van Buren ran for president again in 1848 on the Free Soil party ticket, which desired white racial exclusivity in the western territories. 
Bernhard Thuersam, Director
Cape Fear Historical Institute
"Documenting Cape Fear People, Places and History"

“Jim Crow” Law Origins:

“The practice of requiring by legislative enactment that Negroes use railroad coaches or compartments separate from this for whites, commonly referred to as “Jim Crow” legislation, did not become general in the South until the closing decade of the nineteenth century. 

Earlier, however, in 1881, the legislature of Tennessee enacted a law requiring railroads to provide separate cars or compartments for the use of Negroes.  By this abortive statute – for so it proved to be – Tennessee acquired a somewhat undeserved notoriety, at least in one college textbook, as the originator of “Jim Crow” legislation. 

Moreover, the purpose of this law and the circumstances surrounding its enactment were strikingly different from what is generally believed to be the origin of this type of discriminatory legislation.  It is often assumed that prior to the passage of the “Jim Crow” laws no effective racial discrimination existed on railroad trains. 

The alleged “Jim Crow” law of 1881 was enacted by a legislature in which one house was controlled by the Republican party and which included four Negro members. Only two Negro members voted against the measure; the other two did not vote. 

The bill was signed without hesitation by the first Republican governor of the State elected after the overthrow of the Radical [Republican] regime.  The apparent anomaly of Republican support is explained by the fact that the bill was considered by white [legislature] members to be a concession to Negroes – a consolation prize designed to assuage somewhat the sting caused by the failure of the four Negro legislators to secure the repeal of a more seriously discriminatory statute passed in 1875.  

[An 1880 Federal circuit court reviewed a case involving] a Negro woman, alleged to have been a “notorious and public courtesan, addicted to the use of profane language and offensive conduct in public places.” She had been forced to move from the ladies’ car to the smoking car, which was crowded with passengers, mostly immigrants traveling on cheap rates. [The railroad company] based its case on the reputation rather than the color of the plaintiff. 

With regard to trains carrying three or more passenger cars it appears that the railroads attempted, at least, to pay lip service to the Tennessee law…..they usually provided what was called the “colored” first class car, to which Negroes of both sexes with first class tickets were assigned but which was also available for the use of white persons.. [Though] not exclusively for the use of Negroes, they were sometimes referred to as “Jim Crow” cars.

The innovation of the modern “Jim Crow” car was not the result of the Tennessee law of 1881 but of Supreme Court approval of a Mississippi statute of March 2, 1888 [requiring separate but equal facilities].  [The Court held the Mississippi law as constitutional, with Kentuckian and Justice] John M. Harlan dissenting, on March 3, 1890 . . . [deciding] that the opinion of the Mississippi Supreme Court that the law applied only to intrastate commerce must be accepted as conclusive.  It also held that the law was no more a burden on interstate commerce than requiring certain accommodations at depots or enforcing stops at street crossings.

Gun owner targeted with 'no-knock' raid


A Texas citizen is asking a state appeals court to decide whether police are justified in launching a no-knock raid on a home they want to search simply because they believe there is a gun inside.

“Whatever the issue might be, whether it’s mass surveillance, no-knock raids, or the right to freely express one’s views about the government, we’ve moved into a new age in which the rights of the citizenry are being treated as a secondary concern by the White House, Congress, the courts and their vast holding of employees, including law enforcement officials,” said John W. Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, which is defending John Gerard Quinn.

The controversy arose after police officers in Texas executed a no-knock raid on Quinn’s home, based on their belief there was an AK-47 rifle inside.

In its appeal to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, the Rutherford Institute pointed out that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that a no-knock entry is justified only with a specific warrant or if officers believe someone might be hurt or evidence might be lost.

“Here, the police based their no-knock entry solely upon their suspicion that the occupants of the residence may have been in possession of a rifle,” the appeal explains. “That the suspected possession of weapons was the only ‘justification’ for use of a no-knock entry in this case is undisputed.”

New 'Syrian' front to open in Golan


In addition to the choice of a moderate to become Iran’s new president and plans to send some 4,000 troops from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps to Syria, the regime, along with its Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah, intends to open a new “Syrian Front” on the Golan Heights against Israel, Iranian sources said in a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

The United States, meantime, has announced some kind of weapons support for the Syrian rebels, which analysts believe is too little, too late.

The analysts say it won’t be fast enough as Iran and Hezbollah plan their next military move to take over the strategic Syrian city of Aleppo, a move that could prove decisive in the civil war against the embattled regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Repackaged Amnesty Bill Allows Napolitano to Nix Border Fence & Offers Citizenship to Those Overstaying Their Visas

Via avordvet


Another loophole inserted into the new version of the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill allows Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano (or any of her successors) to nix the construction of a required border security fence if she does not find it to be an "appropriate" use of resources.

The new version of the bill was introduced via a so-called “border surge” amendment from Sens. Bob Corker (R-TN) and John Hoeven (R-ND), with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid repackaging the whole bill into the amendment.

On page 35, line 24 of the new bill, a provision was inserted that says Napolitano--who already believes the border is secure--can decide against building a fence if she chooses not to erect one:

Corker Amendment Permanently Offers Citizenship to Those Overstaying Their Visas

Just as public anxiety about the weak border security provisions in the Senate immigration bill was building, GOP Sen. Bob Corker stepped forward with an amendment to "fix" the problem. The result of his efforts, however, has been a "Christmas tree" measure, covering items far beyond border security. Breitbart News has learned exclusively that one provision of Corker's amendment will allow workers who stay in the country past their visa will remain on the "path to citizenship." 

Even in the future, breaking the law won't stop progress on what VP Joe Biden calls the "unfettered path" to citizenship.

The Corker Amendment ostensibly addresses measures to beef up border security. It, however, is also likely to be the last amendment considered on the immigration bill. As such, it has become a 1,000+ page amendment to supplant the current proposal and provide multiple new provisions. It has become the vehicle for ObamaCare 2.0.

Buried within the text of the Amendment is a seemingly innocuous provision:
