GRNC's "Larry Pittman Benefit Shoot" is fast approaching (Feb. 27), and if you don't have your tickets yet, now is the time to get them. Attending this event means you're supporting North Carolina's most pro-gun legislator, but there is a lot more to it than even that. This benefit, held at Eagle Guns, in Concord, will allow you the opportunity to do all of the following:  
  • Meet NC's most pro-gun legislator, Representative Larry Pittman.
  • Meet GRNC President F. Paul Valone.
  • Compete for GRNC apparel in the centerfire handgun steel plate match (9mm or greater).
  • Compete for GRNC apparel in the rimfire handgun "darts" match.
  • For an inexpensive rental rate, shoot a sub-machine gun.
  • Test the new Glocks! (models 41 & 42).
It takes guts to stand up to leadership in defense of gun rights, but there is a price: So called “mainstream” Republicans are determined to remove Pittman. Now the most pro-gun member of the NC House is facing a well-financed RINO in the primary. What will you do about it?

Representative Larry Pittman (R, Cabarrus, GRNC ****) was critical to passing the largest expansion of gun rights in North Carolina history, House Bill 937.

How so? With GRNC support, Pittman led a “floor fight” to return restaurant carry to a bill from which leadership had stripped it. Realizing the seriousness of the effort, House leadership later moved restaurant carry, the Senate improved it, and the rest is history.

Suicide Bomb Trainer in Iraq Accidentally Blows Up His Class

Via Knuckledraggin' My Life Away

If there were such a thing, it would probably be rule No. 1 in the teaching manual for instructors of aspiring suicide bombers: Don’t give lessons with live explosives.

In what represented a cautionary tale for terrorist teachers, and a cause of dark humor for ordinary Iraqis, a commander at a secluded terrorist training camp north of Baghdad unwittingly used a belt packed with explosives while conducting a demonstration early Monday for a group of militants, killing himself and 21 other members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, army and police officials said.

Iraqi citizens have long been accustomed to daily attacks on public markets, mosques, funerals and even children’s soccer games, so they saw the story of the fumbling militants as a dark — and delicious — kind of poetic justice, especially coming amid a protracted surge of violence led by the terrorist group, including a rise in suicide bombings.

Grave Discovery: Civil War (sic) dead all over Castlewood couple's property

Six Graves of Many Receive Markers

Imagine getting ready to go on vacation when, all of a sudden, a visitor shows up and says that you have lost graves on your lawn.

That's what happened to Bick and Judy Gibson, a couple of Castlewood, Va., residents who live in the Mud Hole Store section of Russell County, near Bickley Mills.

Some historians from Kentucky approached the Gibsons in 2010, saying dead Confederate soldiers lay on their property.

These Civil War buffs followed a list of clues as detailed in the book "Bluegrass Confederate: The Headquarters Diary of Edward O. Guerrant" (Louisiana State University Press, 1999).

In the diary, contained in “Bluegrass Confederate,” it's mentioned the soldiers "were encamped at the Mud Hole store, and they crossed the Clinch River," Bick Gibson said.

That did happen here: As many as 800 soldiers camped out in the vicinity of what is now the 1863 home belonging to Bick and Judy Gibson and built for Bick's ancestors, Dr. Samuel Wesley Gibson and his wife, Harriet.

Stalin Apologia

Some of the Jewish women liberated from German concentration camps recalled this liberation as the worst day of their suffering during World War II, as they were brutally raped by Soviet soldiers.

***************************** published a truly disgusting article on the supposed myths of communism. There are a lot of problems with it, but I’ll focus on this particularly revolting passage, which might seem literally true if you drop the context of what it suggests:
For one thing, a large number of the people killed under Soviet communism weren’t the kulaks everyone pretends to care about but themselves communists. Stalin, in his paranoid cruelty, not only had Russian revolutionary leaders assassinated and executed, but indeed exterminated entire communist parties. These people weren’t resisting having their property collectivized; they were committed to collectivizing property.
This is misdirection. It’s true that Stalin murdered so many people that in absolute terms “a large number” were communists, but in relative terms, they were a minority of his victims. Of course, Stalin’s murder of communists isn’t any more defensible than any other regime’s murder of communists, and it says something that so many regimes, from Maoist China to Ho Chi Minh’s Vietnam, slaughtered communists in sectarian crackdowns on political opponents.

Smoking gun in IRS political targeting


Though President Obama insists the Internal Revenue Service is not guilty of political targeting of nonprofits, WND has learned the agency contracts with an avowedly “progressive” organization supported by George Soros to process data filed by smaller tax-exempt groups.

The federal agency process sends details contained in the annual filings for organizations with $50,000 in annual receipts or less to the Urban Institute, which is funded at least partly by government payments as well as contributions from far-left activist George Soros.

The IRS page directs groups to file with the Urban Institute, although apparently other providers also can file the Form 990 documentation, which is required of every nonprofit, small and large.

The page on the “Annual Electronic Filing Requirement for Small Exempt Organizations – Form 990-N (e-Postcard)” includes instructions to file online, and includes a direct link to the Urban Institute.

Multiculturalist Denial of Islamic Reality

Mike Scruggs

Retired U.S. Army General Tommy Franks, who defeated the Taliban in Afghanistan and led the spectacularly successful invasion of Iraq in 2003, commented in his best-selling 2004 book, American Soldier, that it would be difficult to win a war in which we dare not name the enemy.

Sun Tsu (544-497 BC), the renowned Chinese military philosopher-general and author of The Art of War, made a famous statement that for victory in war it is essential to know your enemy and yourself.

America and the West are engaged in a war in which the brain-anathematizing doctrines of multiculturalism, now eating away the vitality of Western Civilization, blind us to the nature of a dedicated mortal enemy.  Rigidly enforced political correctness inhibits any discussion of the enemy’s name and real nature. Hence our leaders and media constantly refer to “the War on Terror,” or “the War on Radical Islam.” These names deny an essential truth. We may not be at war with Islam, but so far as Islam is faithful to its doctrines, Islam is at war with us. Terror is only their best-developed tactic. The term “Radical Islam” falsely implies that a small minority of radicals has, as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair suggested, “hijacked a wonderful and peaceful religion.”

We need to avoid terms that minimize the very serious danger that Islam now poses to Western civilization. We need to remember that this threat is rooted in the fundamentals of the Koran and the teachings of Muhammad.

In March of 2004, the Pew Global Attitudes Project released a poll taken in Morocco, one of the North African pillars of Arab-Islam. That poll revealed that fully 60 percent of Moroccans approve of suicide attacks against American and British troops and other Westerners in Iraq. Osama bin Laden was highly regarded by 45 percent of Moroccans. Christians are regarded unfavorably by 73 percent. Only 2 percent of Moroccans have a favorable opinion of Christians, and only 1 percent have a favorable view of Jews.

The vast majority of Moroccans, 92 percent, harbor strong negative feelings towards Jews.

These alarming poll statistics are not the result of public relations or diplomatic failures by American, Israeli, and European political leaders. The attitudes represented in the poll are taught in the doctrinal standards of Islam: the Koran, of the sayings and example of Muhammad, and a few key biographies recognized as authoritative by Muslim scholars.

Western leaders are frequently misled on the nature of Islam when they are shown or encounter seemingly peaceful verses of the Koran revealed to Muhammad during the early days of his prophetic career in Mecca. But the Koran is inconsistent, and Sura (chapter) 2:106 gives the convenient rule of abrogation in its interpretation. Roughly paraphrased, whenever a verse is contradicted by a later one, the doctrinal influence of the earlier verse is cancelled. Allah can do all things, including changing his mind. Unfortunately, the later chapters of the Koran, written in Medina, are filled with exhortations to violence against all unbelievers and the promotion of an aggressive and despotic ideology, thus abrogating the peace and tolerance verses of Allah’s early revelations to Muhammad.

Many American and European politicians are shockingly ill advised and dangerously misinformed on Islam. One of the most appalling examples of this is President George W. Bush’s quotation of Sura 5:32a in at least two speeches. Attempting to portray Islam in a very favorable and peaceful light, he read:

“We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder or spreading mischief in the land—it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. The President neglected to read the next verse, Sura 5:33:

“The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.”

How different the impression when quoting the latter verse! There is also the problem of the meaning of mischief. Resisting Allah is the worst kind of “mischief.” Woe to the Christians, Jews, and secularists who stand in the way of Islam!

One of former President Bill Clinton’s 1998 speeches on Islam was so filled with exalted praise for the religion that Serge Trifkovic, the foreign affairs editor of the scholarly journal, Chronicles, noted that Clinton made Islam seem “as American as apple pie.”

President Obama has even forbidden FBI, CIA, and other national intelligence and security organization reports to link Islam and terrorism. Combinations such as “Muslim terrorists” are being blacked over in older reports.

What about “moderate Islam?” There are “moderate Muslims,” but there is no moderate Islam faithful to the Koran and teachings of Muhammad.  So-called moderate Muslims are really secular Muslims. Just as many nominal Christians do not take the Bible or Christianity seriously, many Muslims do not take the Koran and Islam seriously. In Islam, however, the penalty for criticizing the Koran, Muhammad, or Islam is death. So there is little room for open dissent. Serge Trifkovic has said:

“Genuine moderate Islam is like the unicorn. It can be visualized, but who can find one.”

Meanwhile, the West continues to disarm itself spiritually and intellectually by embracing mindless multiculturalism and suppressing any criticism of Islam.

Latest Snowden Revelations: NSA Surveillance Key to Targeted Killings


Journalist Glenn Greenwald, who broke the story of NSA leaker Edward Snowden's revelations last year, says to expect "a lot more significant stories" as he launches a new independent news website this week.

On Monday, his new site, The Intercept, dropped its first big story, about the NSA's role in targeted killings.

The article reveals an NSA program codenamed GILGAMESH that provides geolocation data to U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) to target drone strikes and capture/kill raids.

"The National Security Agency is using complex analysis of electronic surveillance, rather than human intelligence, as the primary method to locate targets for lethal drone strikes – an unreliable tactic that results in the deaths of innocent or unidentified people," the article states.

Hillary Clinton’s ruthless ambitions


A trove of documents collected by Hillary Clinton’s friend Diane Blair has been released to the public 14 years after Blair’s passing, and it’s generally not flattering stuff for the aspiring 2016 presidential candidate, although her supporters are already trying to spin it away.  Alana Goodman at the Washington Free Beacon has an extensive review of the documents, which she says “paint a complex portrait of Hillary Clinton, revealing her to be a loyal friend, devoted mother, and a cutthroat strategist who relished revenge against her adversaries and complained in private that nobody in the White House was ‘tough and mean enough.’”

A great deal of Hillary’s toughness and meanness was directed at the women who might have shredded her political meal ticket by bringing Bill Clinton down with their stories of adultery, including Monica Lewinsky:

Snowden downloaded entire roster of U.S. government, names, home addresses and other personal info of officials and gov't employees, including law enforcement, plus bankers, corporate boards of directors and more.

Via Michael!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_635/usa-security-nsa.jpg

Making the situation all the more dire for the government is that Snowden has made clear he will release some of the information under certain "other" circumstances.  For instance, if Martial Law is declared in the US or if any elections are canceled for any reason, all the government employee info goes out.  If the US Dollar collapses as a currency, or there is any type of "bail-in" for banks, where depositors money is seized to prop-up banks as happened in the country of Cypress,  all the Federal Reserve and Banker info goes out. If an economic collapse takes place, all the Banker/Stock Broker/Commodities Trader information goes out.  If Corporations start hyper-inflating prices, all the information about them, their officers and Boards of Directors will go out.


 Edward Snowden, the former contractor at the National Security Agency took with him multiple "Doomsday" packages of information when he departed the country and began revealing how intensely the US Government is spying on its own citizens. He has the personal home info for all Elected Officials, Law Enforcement, Judges, Bankers, Corporate Boards of Directors and more!

At a classified briefing for members of Congress which took place on Wednesday, members found out that Snowden took with him:
  • a complete roster of absolutely every employee and official of the entire US Government.
  • The names, home addresses, unlisted personal home telephone and personal cellular phone numbers, dates of birth and social security numbers of every person involved in any way, with any department of the US Government.
  • The files include elected officials, Cabinet appointees, Judges, and  **ALL** law enforcement agency employees including sworn officers.
  • Similar files with the personal information of EVERY government contractor and all employees of that contractor!
  • Similar files with all the personal information of EVERY Bank Corporation, their operating officers and their Boards of Directors, including all current and former members of the Federal Reserve
  • Similar files with all the personal information about anyone holding any type of license from the Government such as Doctors, Lawyers, Stock Brokers, Commodities Traders . . . . and many more.
  • Similar files with all the personal information of EVERY non-bank Corporation in the U.S., including their operating officers and Boards of Directors.
Snowden has made it clear that if he is arrested, if he vanishes, or if he "dies" from any cause whatsoever, ALL of the information in his possession will be published publicly.

Ohio National Guard Training Envisions Right-Wing Terrorism

 Ohio National Guard 52nd Civil Support Team

Documents from an Ohio National Guard (ONG) training drill conducted last January reveal the details of a mock disaster where Second Amendment supporters with “anti-government” opinions were portrayed as domestic terrorists.

The ONG 52nd Civil Support Team training scenario involved a plot from local school district employees to use biological weapons in order to advance their beliefs about “protecting Gun Rights and Second Amendment rights.”

Portsmouth Chief of Police Bill Raisin told NBC 3 WSAZ-TV in Huntington, West Virginia that the drill accurately represented “the reality of the world we live in,” adding that such training “helps us all be prepared.”

Two teens have been arrested in connection with an attack in front of Warner Robins High School while school was out due to snow.

Shymalik Raekwon Mitchell, 17, of Warner Robins, was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated assault, according to a news release from the Warner Robins Police Department.

Terrell Antonio Boyd, 17, also of Warner Robins, was charged with battery. Additional arrests may be pending as the investigation continues, the release said.

According to police, a group of about 30 people were having a snowball fight at the high school Jan. 29. Members of the group allegedly were jumping on vehicles in the parking lot, and when one of the vehicle’s owners asked them to stop, they allegedly attacked that person and three others who came to his aid.

A photo of the fight circulated widely on social media. One of the victims said a person associated with the alleged assailants took the photo, and it was originally posted making light of the attack. It rapidly circulated on the Internet, and investigators used the picture to identify the suspects.

The victim, a 27-year-old man from Byron, asked not to be identified because he and the other three victims have children in the school system and fear reprisal. He said they went to Demon Valley to take their children sledding, and while they were there a group of people in front of the school was having a snowball fight.

NC: Dictators and Deans


I would not want to be a student on a college campus today. The university campus is the closest thing we have to a fiefdom in what is left of 21st Century Western civilization. Violations of free speech and student due process have hit epidemic proportions. Contrary to popular opinion, the professors with tenure are not the principal problem. It is the administrators with qualified immunity.

They are gods. They are untouchable. They thrive in ideological echo chambers where they are shielded from internal criticism. Any hope of reform must come from outside the walls of the institution.

Today, I begin a two part series examining the problem on a mid-sized public university campus.

Please read this series carefully. It takes the form of two letters – real letters sent to a real college administrator. Letter one explains the nature of (some) of the problems students face. Letter two will show why universities cannot be trusted to address them. It is my hope that this series will encourage students to fight back and encourage legislators to intervene.

GUN STUN: Gun control activist swears he forgot he was carrying gun while visiting school

Via Jeffery

 How sweet it is!

A Buffalo, N.Y. community activist who is well known locally for pushing for a highly restrictive 2013 gun control law has been arrested for — wait for it — carrying a gun illegally at a public elementary school.

The arrested gun-control advocate, Dwayne Ferguson, caused quite a scene at Harvey Austin Elementary School, reports local CBS affiliate WIVB.

At about 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, police acted on a pair of anonymous 911 tips. A battalion of cops quickly swarmed the school. The brigade included over a dozen squad cars, the SWAT team and K9 units. The Erie County Sheriff’s Air One helicopter and what appears to be an armored vehicle also turned up.

Peter Lessler’s experience training with Col. Cooper

The theme of the Colonel’s General Rifle class was: A first-round hit on the lethal zone of a big game animal, from a field expedient position, at unknown distance, under time pressure. There is your target, hit it NOW! No shooting bench, no shooting sticks, no laser rangefinder, but a speed-loop sling (back then, the Ching of course), and your speed into a good, appropriate, workable position.

Taking your marksmanship skills and techniques and applying them in a practical hunting field situation, where seconds count. No fiddling around. This was something of an eye-opener for me, having been used to the formal and stylized bullseye courses. This non-specialized, practical form of field shooting has become my favorite style.

The Colonel was not a man to brook fools and nonsense, and was mainly interested in the pursuit of excellence. No fluff in that class, no excuses for falling on your face! Know your rifle, its ammo, sights, and trajectory, know how to judge range to 300 yards with your eye, know how to use a loop sling, know how to get a steady position quick, plus know how to properly fire an accurate shot in minimal time. The Colonel was a stern taskmaster, and of course there was nothing frivolous in the course. It was here that I learned the rifle bounce and rifle ten drills. Everything was geared to efficient, real-world, practical success.

Republican candidate: "Bedrock must be the Constitution, with an emphasis on enumerated powers."

"Hillary Clinton’s lead is ephemeral," Matalin told Politico Magazine. "As soon as she gets in, if she gets in, she will be challenged and it will evaporate. Just the nature of the beast. I predict she doesn’t run."

Matalin, who is married to former Clinton adviser James Carville, joined other key Republican figures in telling Politico Magazine that the field of potential GOP candidates is widely scattered. Like Matalin, most agreed that it's not so much a matter of who seeks the presidency, but what they stand for.

"The question is less "who" than "what," Matalin said. "Conservatives should lay down as their nonnegotiable, baseline candidate requirement an outcome-based, empirically demonstrable record or a policy agenda that has succeeded historically...our bedrock must be the Constitution, with an emphasis on enumerated powers."

That said, candidate skills will matter, and the chosen person must have "the fortitude born of unshakable confidence in our convictions. There are more than a few candidates who fit this bill. This is going to be a rocking great primary," Matalin said.

NC: Appeals court upholds terrorism convictions of 3 Muslims

Via LH


A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the convictions of three members of a North Carolina terror ring who plotted to attack the U.S. Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Va., and targets abroad.

Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan, Hysen Sherifi and Ziyad Yaghi were convicted in 2011 after two FBI informants testified that they were part of a home-grown terror group that raised money, stockpiled weapons, took trips overseas and trained for jihadist attacks against perceived enemies of Islam. They were given prison terms ranging from 15 years to 45 years.

On appeal, the men argued that they never conspired to actually commit terrorist acts — they only talked about their beliefs, and such expression is protected by the First Amendment.
“Of course, their argument ignores that the jury found — as it was required to do in order to convict — that the appellants had, in fact, agreed to take action in furtherance of violent jihad,” appeals court Judge Robert King wrote in the unanimous opinion.

The New AR-15 Design is Compliant with “SAFE Act” and Has Gun Control Activists in a Tizzy

Via Angry Mike

 new ar-15 design is compliant with new yorks safe act 

Patriot ingenuity trumps the commies every time.

 Prototypes for the newly designed AR-15 are hitting gun shops across New York, as gun shops and machinists have designed a rifle that complies with the anti-gun law.

At least one gun shop has received a letter from state police saying that the new AR-15 style rifles should be legal in the state as long as they don’t have some of the features that the law prohibits.

The new gun law bans all kinds of semi-automatic rifles that have been labeled with the “assault” term even though these are very common rifles and are no more powerful than the average hunting rifle.

Features like adjustable stocks, pistols grips, and flash suppressors has been deemed to be unlawful on these rifles, mainly because it makes them LOOK mean.  And we all know how little these anti-gun lawmakers really know about guns, as the “Ghost gun” video illustrated.


Marine Corps Times first casualty in headquarters' war to 'professionalize'

Marine Corps Times first casualty in headquarters' war to 'professionalize'


  Marines leaf through a copy of Marine Corps Times during some downtime at a patrol base in Afghanistan's Helmand province. The newspaper, which throughout the last year has investigated allegations of wrongdoing involving the service's top general, has been targeted by Marine Corps headquarters as part of a new initiative to 'professionalize' areas where the publication is sold.

Marine Corps leaders have ordered the independent Marine Corps Times newspaper removed from its prominent newsstand location at base exchange stores worldwide and placed instead in areas away from checkout lines, where it is harder to find and fewer copies are available.

The move raises troubling questions about motive and closely follows a directive prohibiting commanders from using budget funds to buy Marine Corps Times and a number of other publications.

Marine Corps Times is widely recognized for its comprehensive coverage of the Corps, focusing on everything from career tracks, to pay and benefits, family and spouse issues, and employment after leaving the military.

Throughout much of the past year, the paper has published dozens of articles as part of an ongoing investigation into allegations the service’s commandant, Gen. Jim Amos, abused his authority to ensure Marines were punished for an embarrassing war-zone scandal. Numerous reports have captured the attention of mainstream media outlets, including NPR, CNN and Time magazine, among several others.

Spokesmen for the commandant’s office would not answer questions about whether Amos or his staff were aware of or involved in the decision to relocate the newspaper, but a source with knowledge of the new directive said it was approved with the commandant’s knowledge.

“It is no secret [in the Pentagon] that the commandant does not like Marine Corps Times,” the source said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
