Goodies From Ol' Remus

Michelle Obama announced that she is unable to Tweet on her own without the aid of all of her sixteen assistants; many of whom take home six figure salaries. There are more directors, associate directors and deputy associate directors on Michelle Obama’s staff than there were in George Washington’s entire administration.

Note - Camille Johnston, her Director Communications, is salaried at $102,000. Michelle Obama has a staff of twenty-two with $1,591,200 in annual salaries.


 If they were sincere about their report they'd acknowledge that outside of suicide, gun deaths—of any age—are largely a black thang. They're also a single-mother thing. Here in New York, the map of single-parent households looks exactly like the map of gun deaths.

Demographics - If you take the cities of New York, Chicago, Washington DC and Detroit out of the statistics on murder and gun violence in the United States, then the United States has one of the lowest murder rates in the world, and a very low crime rate involving the use of firearms. 

The DC shooting
An unarmed 34-year-old woman with a history of post-partum depression drives to Washington, D.C. from Stamford, Connecticut this past week with her 18-month-old daughter, allegedly hits a police checkpoint barrier with her car, freaks out, accelerates to get away, is chased by the cops, stopped by them and then is shot and killed. The next day Congress gave the D.C. cops a standing ovation. Really? Has the threshold for the use of deadly force been lowered to mothers freaking out in their car?

In their desire to hide the security reinforcements by making them unobtursive, in a place they really don't belong, they suceeded so well I don't think the woman saw them. After bouncing off them I'm sure she panicked, like a rabbit stuck on a wire fence. That ignited the frenzy.

 The Capitol Hill cops ... after terrorizing downtown DC, shutting Congress with a fusillade of rounds, engaging in a wild twenty-vehicle chase, crashing a couple of cars, injuring one of their own, managed to shoot and kill a disturbed unarmed African-American single mother apparently AFTER her car had come to a halt and presented no danger.

art-link-symbol-small-rev01.jpg Who would contemplate sending minions into what amounts to a solid lead wall, moving at a thousand feet per second? Apparently, the fools at the United Nations and their hangers-on and enablers, who mistakenly believe they won't be the poor slobs sent out there to the downrange side of 80 or 100 million American shooters, grimly determined to preserve their political independence, individual freedom, and their guns, says L. Smith in this article, America's Secretest Weapon, at Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership.

art-link-symbol-small-rev01.jpg When Wall Street wises up to our true fiscal condition, it will dump long-term bonds like hot potatoes. This will lead interest rates to jump and make people and banks very reluctant to hold money earning no return. In trying to swap their money for goods and services, the public will drive up prices. As prices start to rise and fingers start pointing at the Fed for fueling the inflation, QE will be brought to an abrupt halt. At that point, Congress will have to come up with an extra 6 percent of GDP on a permanent basis either via huge tax hikes or huge spending cuts, says Laurence Kotlikoff in this article, Is Hyperinflation Just Around The Corner?, at Forbes.

art-link-symbol-small-rev01.jpg Gun owners are actually among the most law-abiding and patriotic people in the entire nation, but that doesn’t really fit with the radical gun control agenda of the progressive elite.  In order to move their agenda forward, they must make gun owners look bad, and they will go to ridiculous extremes in order to achieve that goal, says Michael Snyder in this article, Why Are They Trying So Hard To Demonize Gun Owners?, at The American Dream.

Economy and DC - They will delay taking action until there is no possible alternative BUT to act. And by the time that happens, rest assured, their tactics will be Draconian. Capital controls. Gun controls. Wage and price controls. Steep penalties for minor infractions and victimless crimes. Suspension of Habeas Corpus. Confiscation of private pensions and retirement accounts. Huge tax increases. Dual currency systems.

Obama to Allow Amnesty Rally on National Mall After Kicking Veterans Out

Last week, Barack Obama did a disgraceful thing in barricading the World War II Memorial and then later forcing Vietnam Veterans from the Vietnam Memorial. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid then attempted to blame the Republicans for the barricades. Now, on the very same Mall that those Memorials reside on, the Obama administration has decided to hold a massive rally for comprehensive immigration reform on Tuesday.

Why Terry McAuliffe Can’t Be Trusted on Abortion...Especially in One of America's Most Pro-Life States


What do you get from Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe when you ask him about his view on abortion? A weather report.

Leaders in the pro-life movement held a conference call Wednesday regarding Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s ambiguous abortion agenda a month out from the election.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life organization Susan B. Anthony List, was adamant about exposing McAuliffe’s confusing stance.
“Women need to know, every Virginian needs to know […] There are inconsistencies. He has stated he will reopen clinics that have closed from regulations, has stated he would oppose any restriction against abortion. He also said he follows Virginia’s abortion laws, but Virginia has some of the most pro-life legislation in the country. If he supports that, he has changed his position. Which is it? Is he for it or against it?

5 Examples of How the Government Thinks it Owns Everything

 mount vernon

The federal government has been no-holds-barred trying to make the shutdown as inconvenient as possible, even if it means closing what isn’t theirs. Here are a few examples of the federal government’s entitlement issues.

1. Mount Vernon (attempted) 
The National Park Service blocked Mt. Vernon parking lots last week. The barricades were removed after the “misunderstanding" of ownership was cleared, according to Mt. Vernon Media Director Melissa Wood.
It appears the police also stepped in to wreak havoc:

ATF tries to block Fast and Furious whistle-blower from publishing book

The ATF agent who blew the whistle on Operation Fast and Furious has been denied permission to write a book on the botched anti-gun trafficking sting "because it would have a negative impact on morale," according to the very agency responsible for the scandal.

After first trying to stop the operation internally, ATF Agent John Dodson went to Congress and eventually the media following the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010. Two guns found at the murder scene were sold through the ATF operation.

Dodson's book, titled "The Unarmed Truth," provides the first inside account of how the federal government permitted and helped sell some 2,000 guns to Mexican drug cartels, despite evidence the guns killed innocent people.

Dodson, who is working with publisher Simon & Schuster, submitted his manuscript to the department for review, per federal rules. However, it was denied.

Muslim Immigration and National Security America’s Deadly Dilemma

Mike Scruggs

     In August 2004, a Maryland Transportation Authority Police officer observed that a woman dressed in Muslim garb was videotaping the support structures of the heavily trafficked 4.3-mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The officer conducted a routine traffic stop that led to an FBI raid several days later on the Annandale, Virginia, residence of a Muslim Brotherhood (MB) member with suspected connections to the Hamas terrorist organization. FBI agents discovered the home had a secret sub-basement that housed the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. The archives documented what the FBI had long suspected. Nearly all the Muslim-American groups in the United States were Muslim Brotherhood front organizations. The documents confirmed that the MB and its front organizations’ central objectives were to implement Islamic Law (Sharia) in the United States and further the global dominance of Islam.

     The documents captured included an “Explanatory Memorandum” on MB goals and strategies to destroy America from within. This included an immigration and infiltration plan and process called “Civilization Jihad.” These goals and strategies had been officially approved by the MB at their Shura Council and Organizational Conference in 1987.

     A key paragraph of the Explanatory Memorandum explains:

“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization Jihadist Process’…The Ikhwan (Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers (Muslims) so that it is eliminated, and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

     In other words, in order to destroy America from within, the Brotherhood intends to deceive American leaders and the American people into believing a counterfactual understanding of Islam and the nature of the Muslim Brotherhood. Indeed, the MB has been highly successful in portraying Islam as a religion of “peace and tolerance,” whereas its real nature as expressed in the Koran, the teachings of Muhammad, and 1,400 years of history is coercion, violence, deception, fanatical vengeance, and holy war against all who resist it. In recent history, several decades of multiculturalist propaganda and political correctness have paved the way for almost willful negligence of the facts among Western leaders. Unfortunately, the MB found Presidents Clinton and G. W. Bush extraordinarily vulnerable to their propaganda and counterfactual mythology of Islam.

     President Obama is, of course, in an altogether different class, his actions having clearly demonstrated his pro-Brotherhood, pro-Islam, and anti-Christian worldview. In 2011, his Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, plainly expressed his view that the MB is “largely secular,” and “has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam.” He further proclaimed that the MB in Egypt  “…have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt…but there is no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence, at least internationally.” This is as astonishing a contradiction to truth as ever stated by a high-ranking American intelligence officer.  Former USAF Lt. Gen. Clapper is apparently serving in the post of Obama “Yes-man” rather than a valuable intelligence gatherer and advisor. Unfortunately, we are seeing the same lack of professional backbone over a wide range of issues among many high-ranking General and Flag officers. 

Furthermore, the Obama Administration has allowed probable Brotherhood members to sift through FBI and other intelligence and law enforcement agency reports and eliminate language that is prejudicial toward Muslims. Thus intelligence at all levels is influenced by both MB penetration and the use of language editing to control information and association. One politically correct aspect of this Obama language control is that “Islam” and “terrorist” cannot be connected. Thus our intelligence is contaminated by internal MB penetration and language control. How can we know and defeat an enemy we dare not even name?

     This raises the extremely important question of whether Congress and the American people can trust our own intelligence assessment of the situation in Syria, Iran, or anywhere else.

     During the 2012 Republican Presidential primaries, Herman Cain first stated that he would not appoint a Muslim to his Cabinet. Then after much criticism by the press,  he stated that he would appoint a Muslim who promised to support the Constitution. But Cain’s reversal raises the “Taqiyya” doctrine question. Under the Taqiyya concept in Islamic Law (Sharia), a Muslim is allowed to lie, deceive, or dissimulate in order to advance or defend Islam. It is similar to the Marxist doctrine that whatever advances Communism is the truth. The Taqiyya doctrine makes any Muslim pledge to support the Constitution unreliable in itself. American national security should require far higher standards to prevent terrorism that could cause devastating loss of life.

     In 2009, there were 115,000 Permanent Resident (Green) cards given to Muslim immigrants. Not a single question was asked of any of them about their religion. But Islam is a religion that also contains considerable violent and subversive political ideology.

     Americans face a great dilemma that could easily destroy us. We cannot allow ourselves to be blindsided by easy answers about immigrant religious freedom.  National security must be a primary consideration of immigration policy.  Immigrant religious freedom cannot risk our freedom or threaten our culture. Nor can we allow lobbyist campaign money, cheap-labor greed, or sentimentality to displace American workers and drive down their wages or to put our national security and the lives of thousands or even millions at risk.

     We have foolishly put our civilization and the very future of freedom at risk. 

It will take leaders with extraordinary wisdom and courage to undo our extreme jeopardy.

Disability, USA

 Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.

There is a Senate hearing scheduled tomorrow on a subject of some importance to millions of Americans, but with the government shutdown it's not clear that the Senate Committee on Government Affairs will be able to pay for a stenographer to record the event. The hearing involves the Federal Disability Insurance Program, which could become the first government benefits program to run out of money. When it began back in the 1950s it was envisioned as a small program to assist people who were unable to work because of illness or injury.

Today, it serves nearly 12 million people -- up 20 percent in the last six years -- and has a budget of $135 billion. That's more than the government spent last year on the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department, and the Labor Department combined. It's been called a "secret welfare system" with it's own "disability industrial complex," a system ravaged by waste and fraud. A lot of people want to know what's going on. Especially Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.

Issa: ‘There’s a reason to fear’ Obama agencies

Republican California Rep. Darrell Issa, the GOP’s top government watchdog, warns that we have entered a time to “love my country, fear my government.”

“Right now, there’s a reason to fear the IRS and other agencies, including the EPA, who are loaded with people who feel empowered to bend the rules against those they disagree with,” the California Republican explained.

Issa has been investigating the Internal Revenue Service since Lois Lerner’s May 2013 admission that the agency treated conservative groups differently, and his Sept. 17 committee report details the committee’s progress and findings to date.

New Air Force cargo planes fly straight into mothballs

The Pentagon is sending $50 million cargo planes straight from the assembly line to mothballs because it has no use for them, yet it still hasn’t stopped ordering the aircraft, according to a report.

A dozen nearly new Italian-built C-27J Spartans have been shipped to an Air Force facility in Arizona dubbed “the boneyard,” and five more currently under construction are likely headed for the same fate, according to an investigation by the Dayton Daily News.  The Air Force has spent $567 million on 21 of the planes since 2007, according to purchasing officials at Dayton’s Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Of those, 16 have been delivered – with almost all sent directly to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, where some 4,400 aircraft and 13 aerospace vehicles, with a total value of more than $35 billion, sit unused.

NC PATCON & Islands of Freedom


I was fortunate enough to attend Brock & Co.’s North Carolina Patriot Convention this past weekend.  The speakers were incredible (John Ainsworth – definitely check him out), I was able to meet up with a few friends, and made plenty of new ones.  Although a full write-up will appear in the November issue of III Magazine, I’d like to tackle some peripheral points for now.

Defensive pistol sight options

Via Oleg Volk

 Easy to use -- in good light.

 Defensive pistols don’t shoot explosive shells, so close doesn’t count. Precise hits on vitals of opponents are required for effect, so pistol sights have evolved in many different directions. It’s impossible to cover all of them in one article, but we’ll look at the most common examples.

The most obvious direction is represented by target pistols: black front and rear for maximum contrast. As such designs go, the Soviet TT33 was decent — the front sight blade was narrow enough to let light around it, and it was possible to get a good sight picture quickly.

Mike Lee: He and Ted Cruz faced ‘demeaning…all-out attack’ from GOP colleagues [AUDIO]


Senate Republicans furiously attacked Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Utah Sen. Mike Lee behind closed doors and leaked details of an off-record meeting to the media to harm the two senators, according to Lee.

Lee divulged some of the details of a closed-door meeting on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on Friday, since he said much of it had been leaked to the media by his own colleagues.

“[N]ormally, I don’t comment at all on closed-door meetings between Republican senators,” Lee said. “It’s a pretty strict rule we follow. But one exception I’ll make is circumstances like this, where contents of the meeting were leaked deliberately by several of my colleagues and leaked in a very one-sided way. I’m happy to tell you about it here.”

I have a few things on my mind and as as I have taken Liberty and Lead down, I have no outlet.

Brother, we are so very close to absolute chaos in the streets that I am finding it most fantastic the lack of understanding and preparing by the average person. I have some acquaintances who are very intelligent and Liberty minded, but who seem to completely disregard the data and warnings that we are on the very edge of societal and financial ruin.

When in conversation about the communist bastards who are taking what is left of the Republic and raping it, they still speak of revitalizing the Republican party and of political strategy to "take back the country". The very idea that there is any course left except violence to save the concept of Liberty comes from the puppet masters who are the architects of all which these "Fox-tards" hate. The entire "Left and Right" has been created to let the slaves believe that they have a voice, some "representation" in what happens in Washington.


We are fiddling while Rome burns. We are watching WWE in the capital. All of the posturing, all of the circus is a distraction while the real brokers of power do whatever the hell they want with our very lives. We labor a lifetime to try and achieve what exactly? We own nothing. Anything in our possession can be removed by force from us at any time. Property rights are no more. So, we labor for the pleasure of the men behind the curtain. We exist to provide them a means of our own enslavement.

We stand on the blade of a knife. Those of us fully awakened are sickened and numbed by where we find ourselves. What do we do?

I for one am of the opinion that it is time to hold the people who enslave us to account. It is time to pick the daisies.

My friend TL Davis once told me that "There is nothing left to do except shoot the bastards, but I am too much of a gentleman to put it in such simple terms". Indeed.




How does one explain a thousand important moments and interactions, many of which involve the intimate building of trust, allies and friends, to an audience who was not able to attend?  Many of those moments were personal, between just two people, or a small group, the nature of which is not for general public consumption.  Other moments simply would hold little value in being described without the context surrounding the weekend.

Like the Idaho PatCon, this weekend at Brock's event in North Carolina is simply unable to be described in a single post.  I'll begin slow with a few observations.

First, Holly and I are grateful and thankful to Brock and his daughter Dixie for inviting us to stay in the guestroom of their wonderful and historic home.
