Oceanside Pier Again :) Obama Care Supporters Plan to Add Birth Control to Water Supply

Via NC Renegade

One of those, I laughed so hard until I cried.:)



GRNC has just learned that the shopping-cart-gateway provider, Authorize.Net (a subsidiary of CyberSource), is refusing to continue providing services to Hyatt Guns, a large North Carolina-based gun shop that also has a sizable online presence. In late August, management at Hyatt Guns was disappointed and perplexed to receive a notice explaining that the store was in violation of Authorize.Net’s “acceptable use” policy. What was their offending violation? They sell firearms. In Authorize.Net’s own words:

Dear Hyatt Gun Shop Inc,

Authorize.Net LLC ("Authorize.Net") has determined that the nature of your business constitutes a violation of Section 2.xiv of the Authorize.Net Acceptable Use Guidelines and Sections 3.3 and 11.3 of the Authorize.Net Service Agreement (the "Agreement"). These sections include, but are not limited to, the sale of firearms or any similar product. Accordingly, pursuant to Section 4 of the Acceptable Use Guidelines, your ability to access and use the Authorize.Net Services will be terminated on September 30, 2013.

You read that right. Authorize.Net is terminating the gun store’s access to its services simply because they sell guns. Based on their policy statement above, one can only conclude that this discriminatory policy is being applied to gun sellers nationwide. It looks like the small but noisy anti-gun crowd has gotten to what must be a jelly-spined PR department at CyberSource and Authorize.Net. Either that, or leadership at these companies have simply become anti-gun all on their own. Whatever the cause, Authorize.Net is making it clear that businesses lawfully selling firearms are undesirable, and need not apply.

Authorize.Net’s unexpected abandonment has left Hyatt Guns, and presumably others, with very little time to find a new provider for online transactions. The scramble to set up a new system in a short period of time is disruptive and quite costly. If this is how upstanding business people are going to be treated by CyberSource and Authorize.Net, it’s time that we all “de-authorize” them from our online experience.

GRNC is recommending that you keep a close eye out for the Authorize.Net and CyberSource names and logos when shopping online, and avoid making purchases from companies that use their services. When you run across one of these logos, take a moment and let the online shop know why you’ve decided to take your business elsewhere. Below you’ll see the identifying logos for CyberSource and Authorize.Net, which you may see when checking out at an online store. Please take a good look, and put them on your “don’t buy” list. 


GRNC also asks that you contact CyberSource and make it clear that you’re on to them, that you refuse to buy from companies that use their services, and that you intend to convey this message to online merchants. They need to know that singling out upstanding businessmen and women, and needlessly making it more difficult for them to conduct lawful and ethical commerce, will not be tolerated. Tell them that making such an unjust practice part of their business model will not only adversely affect their reputation, but it will hit them where it hurts most—the bottom line. Below, you will find contact information and suggested text for a message to CyberSource regarding Authorize.Net’s prejudice. Please contact them, and let them know that treating gun sellers like second class merchants is an affront to gun owners, and to all freedom-loving people for that matter.

What is ObamaCare if not an attempt to get doctors and patients to conduct one of life’s most private activities, medical treatment, along the lines of government dictates? What is Common Core, the proposal to create national educational standards, if not an attempt to snuff out competing views on what children need to learn to become fully intellectually formed? The reach of government even goes so far as dictating the offerings and calorie content of school lunches under First Lady Michelle Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.

 The nation is now daring to make that transition between a Western style freedom loving nation to a police state and the worse possible problem, a state of denial, has engulfed the masses. In the end as the economy collapses, freedom contracts, and our society evolves into a Ceaușescu Romanian style wet dream state, the sheep will arise only to realize it is too late. The U-Turn of our society is complete and the only chapter left to be written is the saddest and bloodiest in American history since the Civil War.

Give the cops a .38 revolver and a bad clip-on tie and they seem able to handle situations without having to shoot people. You give them tactical gear and an armored vehicle, and suddenly the casings are bouncing off the sidewalk... Now that they can just shoot folks, they don't really have to worry about getting hurt, and thus don't really make much of an effort to defuse a situation.

 The NSA missed the Boston Marathon bombers, even though the suspects left a really sloppy Internet trail and the older brother was on the terrorist watch list. With all the NSA is doing eavesdropping on the world, you would think the least it could manage would be keeping track of people on the terrorist watch list. Apparently not. I don't know how the CIA measures its success, but it failed to predict the end of the Cold War.

An anonymous source has told PPSIMMONS News and Ministry that he has called the office of Senator Jim Inhofe who has confirmed that he will be filing charges of treason against John Kerry if he signs the United Nations Arms Treaty on Wednesday this week.

The reliable source told PPSIMMONS:
 "I just called Senator Jim Inhofes office and found out he is filing charges of treason on Kerry for this. Call his office and lend your voice. Senator Jim Inhofe DC office: (202) 224-4721"

How could it have been any clearer that Saigon was going to fall immediately after the North got the go ahead by Congress refusing to back South Vietnam in 1975?

Many might be surprised that I have no problem with a known pedophile, who raped his own step daughter, once again president of Nicaragua, or Salvadorans voting in a president who represents one of the most diabolical terrorist organization in Latin America during the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s: not a week went by that a bomb didn’t go off killing civilians that wasn’t placed by the various killer groups under the umbrella of the FMLN, such as the ERP.

But, El Salvador’s FMLN and Nicaragua’s President Ortega were legally voted in, and it is their country and their mess—and most importantly they’re no longer a communist military threat to the US, having shot their last wad during Tet II San Salvador that was orchestrated by Sandinista President Daniel Ortega, Cuba’s Raul Castro and Vietnam’s General Giap, and unlike Vietnam, there was no longer a Soviet Union to rearm them.

El Salvador, like Nicaragua, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Russia, before them is learning that the charade of politics might change, but the same people remain in power.

3 out of 3: Off-duty sheriff's deputy shoots 3 alleged muggers in Forest Park, kills one

Via Equal Force


 Police say an off-duty 16-year veteran of the St. Charles County Sheriff's Deputy fired shots at three men who were attempting to rob him late Monday night in Forest Park. One of the men died from his injuries.

The 36-year-old officer and a 23-year-old female acquaintance were jogging in the park past-curfew hours Monday, when they stopped at the corner of the Grand Basin. They told investigators that a man slowly walked past the pair. The officer said he became suspicious and, fearing for their safety, put his gun at his side.

As they turned the corner, three men in their late teens to early 20s, who were dressed in hoodies, dark clothing and armed with a gun, announced a robbery, according to a news release.

The off-duty officer fired his gun, hitting one of the suspects three times in the lower abdomen.
He was pronounced dead on the scene. Police identified him as Antonio Nash, 18, of the 2700 block of N. Kingshighway.

The second suspect was shot in the buttocks, and was taken to the hospital, where officials say he is in stable condition. The third suspect, who was shot in the neck, was also taken to the hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

Homeowner kills suspected car thief in Maple Valley

Via Equal Force


The owner of a truck that was broken into early Tuesday in Maple Valley is an ex-Marine with a concealed weapons permit.

The King County Sheriff's Office says he was armed when he took his dog for a walk and discovered two people in his pickup.

He found a man and woman, in their 20's, in the truck.

"Guns were drawn," King County Deputy Charlie Akers said. "The bad guy had a gun with him. The property owner had a gun. About a dozen shots were fired."

Akers tells KIRO Radio's Dori Monson that the homeowner apparently fired in an attempt to disable the suspects' getaway vehicle, which he says was a stolen vehicle from Kent.

"As the truck owner fired some rounds at the vehicle to disable it, the individual who was running apparently started shooting at him, at which time he adjusted his fire and he was able to shoot the suspect, who died at the scene."

Minn. Somali Community Reacts To Kenyan Mall Attack

Via Michael

Two days after Al-Shabaab militants stormed and unleashed chaos in a shopping center in Nairobi, Kenya, the group has released the names of the people responsible.

On Twitter Sunday, Al-Shabaab said some of the militants are from the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.

The Al-Shabaab Twitter account has since been suspended, but this is a terror group Minnesotans have become familiar with.

For local Somali community leaders, the chaos in Nairobi is a reminder of the dangers of Al-Shabaab being able to recruit young Somali-Americans for their attacks.

“It’s very sad those kids are getting caught in the middle of this,” said Omar Jamal, who works for the United Nations. “If anything, it shows Al-Shabaab is as deadly and dangerous as it can ever be.”

A leader within the Somali community told WCCO two of the attackers are from the Twin Cities, but he has not yet spoken with their families.

Al-Shabaab has a history of recruiting young Somali-Americans from the Twin Cities. The FBI says several dozen have been lured to terror training camps overseas.

Cops seek black cyclists who assaulted physician and professor in hate crime

He was supposed to be one of the good guys: A doctor in Harlem. Professor at Columbia. An anti-racist and national leader in speaking out against White Supremacism. Frequent guest on the Huffington Post, New York Times and other liberal outlets. Active in UN public health initiatives for poor people.

He even lives in Harlem.

So when Dr. Prabhjot Singh decided he would stroll through his neighborhood last Saturday night, he figured he was safe.

Then four blocks from Malcolm X Boulevard, Dr. Singh met up with 20 black people on bikes. According to the NBC affiliate in New York:
“I heard ‘Get Osama’ and then ‘terrorists,’ and then the next thing I felt was someone moving past me, ripping at my beard and then hitting me in the chin.”
He ran. They chased him and knocked him down and beat him some more.

Singh said he thought he could have died if passersby hadn’t intervened to help fight off the more than dozen young men who jumped him.

They broke his jaw. Kicked out a few of his teeth. And all that.

'I rise in opposition to Obamacare' Ted Cruz seizes Senate floor, vows to speak 'until I can no longer stand'


Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is speaking on the Senate floor and says he plans to go on until he can no longer stand, in his fight to defund Obamacare.

It’s not exactly a filibuster, because he would be allowed to speak only until noon tomorrow, but the speech may go on for a long time.

His message is aimed at Republicans as well as Democrats.

“No more fake fights,” he said. “No more hiding your votes. We need to make D.C. listen.”

He is trying to stop establishment Republicans from pushing a plan that would allow them to make merely a symbolic vote against Obamacare, while allowing it to remain funded.

Cruz took to the Senate floor Tuesday afternoon to make a passionate plea to stop Obamacare.

He is taking turns speaking, and holding the Senate floor, with colleague Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, who has also been leading the fight to defund Obamacare.

Exclusive: Rand Paul wants Chief Justice Roberts, all federal workers, to enroll in Obamacare


Arguing federal workers should not get special treatment, Rand Paul says he does not want taxpayers subsidizing the personal health-care plans of any federal employee — including Chief Justice John Roberts — anymore.

With some in Congress arguing lawmakers and their staff should not get subsidies to cover their health insurance as President Obama’s health-care law goes into effect, the Republican senator from Kentucky told The Daily Caller on Sunday that he’s going to start pushing a constitutional amendment that goes even further.

Paul’s proposal — outlawing any special exemptions for government employees — would mean all federal workers would have to purchase health insurance on the new Obamacare exchanges instead of getting taxpayer-funded subsidies. Some critics say those subsidies amount to special treatment. The Obamacare health insurance exchange opens Oct 1.

"Right now in the Senate, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are actively whipping Senators to shut down debate on the House continuing resolution so that Harry Reid can gut it with just 51 votes,” a senior congressional staffer with intimate knowledge of the situation said in an email to Breitbart News. “Unbelievably, they actually are leading the fight to fully fund Obamacare.”

McConnell and Cornyn stated earlier Monday that they oppose a possible filibuster from Cruz to keep Reid from adding language funding the Affordable Care Act to the continuing resolution passed by the House of Representatives.

U.N. sarin investigation 'amateurish' Analysts: Raises more questions than answers


The United Nations investigation into the Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack in Damascus officially wasn’t designed to assign blame, but even so, the results are “amateurish” and it raises more questions than it answers, according to sources.

Experts who have analyzed the 41-page U.N. investigative report say that it is incomplete, “amateurish” according to one source, and from the report, it is impossible to construct any accurate details about sites investigated.

The report refers to both three sites, then two, and doesn’t address another two sites altogether as having been targeted.

There also is conflicting information on the samples taken from the various sites to determine whether chemical weapons were used, analysts of the report say. In some cases, no chemical weapons residue was found in samples taken at the sites.

Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the committee's chairman, says work is going on behind the scenes to write bills addressing other immigration topics.  Rep. Goodlatte also said that he hopes the House will start to vote on immigration bills in October.

While a couple of the bills approved by the Judiciary Committee are helpful, the passage of any of the bills could result in a mass amnesty for illegal aliens.  Sens. Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin have made it very clear that they will use any single-issue House-passed immigration bill as a vehicle to pass their mass amnesty legislation.

'You’re a very bad man': Astonishing moment British boy, four, confronted Kenyan mall gunman… who gave him Mars bars and begged for forgiveness

 Amazing courage: The four-year-old boy with his sister, six, stands holding a Mars bar given to him by a terrorist outside the Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi

A four-year-old British boy caught up in the Kenya mall massacre showed astonishing bravery by confronting a marauding gunman who ended up begging for his forgiveness, it emerged today.

The child told one of the terrorists that he was a 'very bad man' as he protected his mother who had been shot in the leg, and six-year-old sister.

Yesterday reports emerged online that an injured woman trapped inside had been sexually abused at gunpoint in front of young hostages.

With a gun tucked into his waistband, he was pictured helping two women from the complex.

His story emerged as sporadic gunfire continued to ring out from inside the mall early today as Kenyan security forces battled Al Qaeda-linked terrorists into a fourth day.

Despite Kenyan police assurances that they had taken control of the building, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 hostages were still being held by a band of attackers, possibly as many as 13.

Insane: Student Faces Expulsion For Playing With Toy Gun At Home

Gun Control SC 300x300 Student faces expulsion for playing with toy gun at home

In the wake of several high-profile shootings and a national debate regarding gun control, public schools have become notoriously hypersensitive about the possession of anything resembling a firearm on campus. While harsh rules are often enforced with abandon, children have at least been able to play with traditional toy guns while away from school property.

Unfortunately, school administrators now consider such harmless behavior at home to be sufficient basis for draconian punishment.

A 12-year-old in Virginia Beach, Va., recently learned how serious — and delusional – the response to playing in his front yard can be. He and a friend were playing with a pellet gun at his home one morning when the school bus arrived. Khalid Caraballo and his friend were promptly disciplined and both face suspension for the incident. Carabello could be kept out of school for the remainder of the school year as a result of his off-campus playtime.

Wisconsin PATCON AAR

Via WiscoDave

I would consider the recent PatCon that was held on my farm to be a success. It was meant to be a simple meet, greet and eat affair and that was accomplished.

Faces have been put to commenter names. Email addresses have been exchanged and hopefully the relationships formed will continue to grow.

Nic and his family arrived Friday evening and set up camp. I picked Catfish up from the train station and got him settled in the house. 

Saturday Catfish worked on the CD3WD project while Nic and I set up tables, chairs and gathered firewood. Nic's daughters learned the patient art of stalking and capturing barn kittens.

III started arriving at 1230 and pretty much were all there by 130. Chairs around the fire pit allowed for conversation. I will admit that I was not able to talk and listen as much as I would have liked because I was moving back and forth between the house, fire pit and barnyard doing "host stuff." Others would be far better at describing the conversations that took place than I would be.

The food was delicious! Catfish grilled the brats and burgers to perfection and the dishes that were brought to pass were all masterpieces! Tom's chicken wings were so good my wife asked for the recipe. I do not think anything could have been better or more perfect.

Doc Scheffler offered a set of F/B plates for a raffle. $5 a person was collected with the winner getting the plate and the cash to spend at Main Gun. Nic won the raffle.

Brian had graciously brought a Tavor magazine to also raffle (it fits AR platform 5.56/.223 rifles) and Tom won that.

All in all a small group of Patriots met, sharing a meal and conversation.

Friendships were made, support offered and taken.

The foundation has been laid. Now the building starts.

Dingbat: Blood on the Constitution: Concern about American lives starts with gun control



Useful fool

Here we go again. With 12 dead bodies at Washington’s Navy Yard, not including that of the shooter, Americans are back to the usual handwringing: Why, oh why can’t we stem the tide of gun violence?

People, this is not rocket science. (Evidently to you it is.)

For a start, we have too many guns sloshing around. A recent Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) backgrounder notes that “The United States, with less than 5 percent of the world’s population, has about 35-50 percent of the world’s civilian-owned guns.” Reading the news, you might imagine that Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, or some other conflict-ravaged nation would be leading the most guns-per-capita race, but nope: That’s us. We’re No. 1.
