".......Obama: the gift from hell that keeps on giving.”

 ** FILE ** Actor James Woods. (Associated Press)

It’s a safe bet there’s no love lost between Hollywood actor James Woods and President Obama — the former has taken to Twitter several times over the last few months to trash the policies and politics of the latter.

The latest came this week, in response to a report from British press that revealed the National Security Agency commonly provides Israel with intelligence data — without first stripping out private and personal information on American citizens. The Guardian in London reported the item, the latest in its coverage of document leaks from Edward Snowden.

Mr. Woods unleashed his views of the matter — and of Mr. Obama’s role in allowing the practice to occur — on Twitter.

 Historic: The bugle that sounded the catastrophic orders for the Charge of the Light Brigade has emerged on TV's Antiques Roadshow

The bugle that sounded the catastrophic orders for the Charge of the Light Brigade has emerged on TV’s Antiques Roadshow.

The instrument was carried into the suicidal battle of the Crimea War in 1854 by Private William Brittain, Lord Cardigan’s duty trumpeter.

He took orders directly from Lord Cardigan, who led the cavalry, and blew on his bugle several times to signal the men to walk, canter, trot and charge at the Russian guns.

The Charge of the Light Brigade

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
"Forward, the Light Brigade!
"Charge for the guns!" he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

"Forward, the Light Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Rode the six hundred.

Flash'd all their sabres bare,
Flash'd as they turn'd in air,
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wonder'd:
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right thro' the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reel'd from the sabre stroke
Shatter'd and sunder'd.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro' the jaws of Death
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honor the charge they made,
Honor the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred.

Biden’s “CODEWORD” Warning – More Than Meets the Eye?

The U.S. Treasury has warned that the $16.7 trillion debt ceiling must be raised by Oct. 17th, to avoid a U.S. debt default. This warning has caused concerns amongst investors and citizens alike as most are unsure of their futures in this once great nation.

Based on a study of a previous debt ceiling impasse in 2011, the results won’t be good if figureheads in Washington can’t find a solution. reported, “Failing to do so, Treasury warned, would have catastrophic consequences.

“A default would be unprecedented and has the potential to be catastrophic: credit markets could freeze, the value of the dollar could plummet, U.S. interest rates could skyrocket, the negative spillover could reverberate around the world, and there might be a financial crisis and recession that could echo the events of 2008 or worse,” the report said.”[1]

Some are wondering why this was all allowed to happen in the first place. Why would a corporation, the Corporation of the United States (i.e. D.C.), intentionally run itself into the ground, what’s the point?

Obviously this was not done by the corporation itself or one single person, but rather the greedy men and women in charge of it. Their hands are deep into the honey pot as they have used the funds for years to fund their private corporations, awarding themselves no-bid contracts and so on.

So how might this all affect us now?

Virginia Flaggers: "Empire of the Owls"

Va Flagger/Author H. V. "Bo" Traywick, Jr. has generously donated a case of his book "Empire of the Owls - reflections on the North's war against Southern secession" to the Va Flaggers. We will be offering the books for $20 each and ALL proceeds will go toward the I-95 Battle Flag Projects. Please consider purchasing this excellent book and supporting the Va Flaggers.

"This book will change your mind about everything you thought you knew about the War between the States. A reasoned, scholarly work, it is also a readable, gripping account of the war told by those who lived it. The dignified behavior of the Southerners defending their families comes through time and again. Noble sentiments of honor, duty and care of the defenseless are not lost in the desperation of war but elevated.

The book will make you cry. It will make you proud. It will also make you mad about a senseless war that killed 612,000 young men and caused horrible suffering that lasted for generations. But it is an important addition to the Civil War dialogue now, during the Sesquicentennial, because it allows the long-suppressed voices of the South (Virginia, in particular) to speak for themselves and challenge the version of history written by the victors."

WI Gov Scott Walker Defies Feds, Keeps Parks Open

 devil's lake state park.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's administration defied the federal government by refusing to close  popular state properties at the behest of the National Park Service.

The park service ordered state officials to close the northern unit of the Kettle Moraine, Devil's Lake, and Interstate state parks and the state-owned portion of the Horicon Marsh, but state authorities rebuffed the request because the lion's share of the funding came from state, not federal coffers.

'12 Years a Slave' faulted for boosting racial tension


Reviewers are gushing with praise for a new movie, “12 Years A Slave,” saying it “could do for slavery what seven-time Oscar-winner ‘Schindler’s List’ did for the Holocaust.”

But some authors who have investigated and written about such issues say they worry it could heat up racial tensions.

Jack Cashill, author of “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman,” about the case that inflamed racial tensions across the U.S., believes the film is just one of many intended to maintain the status quo.

“These kind of movies are designed to sustain blacks in a permanent state of victimization,” Cashill said. “It really started big time with ‘Roots’ in the 1970s. When ‘Roots’ got busted for plagiarizing from another novel and the author treated false information as fact, the mainstream media didn’t want to know it, it was too useful a story.”

US Banks Stuffing ATMs With 20-30% More Cash In Case Of Panicked Withdrawals

Via WiscoDave

Even as the fearmongering over the debt ceiling hits proportions not seen since 2011 (when it was the precipitous drop in the market that catalyzed a resolution in the final minutes, and when four consecutive 400 point up and down DJIA days cemented the deal - a scenario that may be repeated again), some banks are taking things more seriously, and being well-aware that when it comes to banks, any initial panic merely perpetuates more panic, have taken some radical steps.

The FT reports that "two of the country’s 10 biggest banks said they were putting into place a “playbook” used in August 2011 when the government last came close to breaching the debt ceiling. One senior executive said his bank was delivering 20-30 per cent more cash than usual in case panicked customers tried to withdraw funds en masse. Banks are also holding daily emergency meetings to discuss other steps, including possible free overdrafts for customers reliant on social security payments from the government."

Border Patrol Rep Claims Agents Being Ordered to Stand Down


The National Border Patrol Council has come forward to reveal to the American public once again management practices that could be risking the lives of Americans -- and the lives of illegal immigrants. 

Shawn Moran, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council, spoke exclusively with Breitbart News and claimed that Border Patrol management has begun the practice of ordering Border Patrol Agents to stand down and cease pursuing drug smugglers, human smugglers and traffickers, and illegal aliens. He also warned it could lead to illegal aliens entering the country from nations associated with terrorism.

“It doesn’t matter whether it’s drugs, bodies, or how large the group is, our agents are being ordered to stand down by Border Patrol management,” said Moran. "I have received reports from our agents in every single sector from San Diego to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas that they are receiving these orders."

Miss Mississippi ‘passionate’ about Southern heritage



Revealing contrast with Miss America points to Southern distinctiveness

The lovely Southern lady who was crowned Miss Mississippi, Chelsea Rick of Fulton, sounded a decidedly different note from the Indian immigrant Nina Davuluri (representing New York) who ultimately was given the title Miss America. Davuluri complained about ‘racist’ tweets, ran on the platform of ‘celebrating diversity through cultural competency’ and noted with happiness that ‘the girl next door is evolving, as the diversity of America evolves.’

The evolving ‘diversity of America’ is, of course, achieved through the anti-White immigration policy of the United State Federal Government which consistently strikes down State immigration laws, takes sheriffs to court for doing their job and periodically grants amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. Some Progressive leaders such as Michael Lind have admitted (and praised the fact) that this policy is displacing Whites in general and Southerners in particular. While Davuluri praised the ongoing transformation of the US into a demographically Third World society, Rick spoke out in support of her Southern identity, writing ‘I am a Southern girl who is passionate about the heritage of my family and my state.’ She went on to add:
The thing I cherish most in this world is my family, and the love between us can transcend any situation. I am thankful for the blessings in my life, and I love every minute of it. I strive to not take one minute for granted; more importantly, however, I strive to not take one of my God-given gifts for granted.
Quite a contrast. Miss Rick reminds us that Southerners are a distinct people. Despite the political agenda (to promote ‘diversity’) of the people behind the Miss America pageant, the best of the South was represented well by Chelsea Rick. Well done, Miss Mississippi.
