Mike McNulty, Waco Hero, R.I.P.


One of the heroes of the Waco fights of the 1990s has passed away.  Mike McNulty did more than any other single person to doggedly pursue the truth about Waco.  And he produced or co-produced a number of superb films that vividly and compelling explained why the feds were lying about the carnage they unleashed in Texas.  And he fed great information to me and other journalists – as well as sometimes impatiently pushing us forward, urging us to turn over more rocks. (I think my sense of humor puzzled or irked him at times during our phone calls, but I came out on the right side of the issue, so he usually tolerated me pretty well.)  Mike was never cowed by official bullshit or by the strutting and intimidation attempts by lawmen or political appointee poohbahs.  Mike helped Janet Reno get the legacy she deserved.

I quoted Mike at length on an article on the Waco coverup that came out in the Washington Times on the morning of the Oklahoma City bombing, April 19, 1995:

Needless to say, this is 100% anti-gun, no matter their blather, for instance:
"It is important to note that the project is an adamantly pro-second amendment gesture, in that it assumes that the more responsible gun use and ownership is, the more likely it is that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution will not only be respected, but maybe even be enjoyed by more people."

As much as we liberty-loving, Constitution-loving, America-loving patriots hate to admit it, the government in Washington, D.C., is NOT fixable. The elitist power structure in D.C. is too ensconced and too powerful. They will never cede power to folks, such as Justin Amash, Thomas Massie, etc., who truly believe in limited government. Nor will they permit the states to reclaim ANY of their constitutionally recognized powers. And neither party in D.C. has enough Ron Paul-types to thwart the evil machinations of the power-drunk leviathan that is Washington, D.C.

Furthermore, the same forces of darkness that control the political establishment in Washington, D.C., also control the media and financial establishments in New York City. The voters of America have too often rejected the presidential and congressional candidates who had the potential to help lead our ship of state to safer waters (if we even have untainted elections). The warnings of the prophets and porters have fallen on deaf ears. For the most part, Americans refuse to dislodge themselves from their addiction to government handouts. In addition, America’s pastors have largely abandoned their calling to be watchmen on the wall, which has left our ship of state without a moral compass or a spiritual rudder.

NC: Lincoln’s Real Motive

Lincoln’s belief that the American South after solemn conventions of its States remained part of his government was a fiction to which he clung throughout the war, surpassed only by his belief that ten percent of the voters of a State can determine its legal and constitutional government. He refused to believe that his own authority as president was limited, and the supremacy of his political party over country motivated him.

Bernhard Thuersam,

Lincoln’s Real Motive

“From Mr. [Robert] Toombs, Secretary of State, Message No. 5, Department of State, Montgomery, Alabama, May 18, 1861.

To: Hon Wm. L. Yancey, Hon. Pierre A. Rost, Hon. A. Dudley Mann, Commissioners of the Confederate States, etc.

Gentlemen: My dispatch of the 24th ultimo contained an accurate summary of the important events which had transpired up to that date, and informed you that the Executive of the United States had commenced a war of aggression against the Confederate States.

On the 20th instant the convention of the people of North Carolina will assemble at Raleigh, and there is no doubt that, immediately thereafter, ordinances of secession from the United States, and union with the Confederate States, will be adopted.

Although ten independent and sovereign States have thus deliberately severed the bonds which bound them in political union with the United States, and have formed a separate and independent Government for themselves, the President of the United States affects to consider that the Federal Union is still legally and constitutionally unbroken . . . He claims to be our ruler, and insists that he has the right to enforce our obedience.

From the newspaper press, the rostrum, and the pulpit, the partisans of Mr. Lincoln, while they clamorously assert their devotion to the Union and Constitution of the United States, daily preach a relentless war between the sections, to be prosecuted not only in violation of all constitutional authority, but in disregard of the simplest law of humanity.

The authorized exponents of the sentiments of [Lincoln’s party] . . . avow that it is the purpose of the war to subjugate the Confederate States, spoliate the property of our citizens, sack and burn our cities and villages, and exterminate our citizens . . .

[The] real motive which actuates Mr. Lincoln and those who now sustain his acts is to accomplish by force of arms that which the masses of the Northern people have long sought to effect – namely, the overthrow of our domestic institutions, the devastation and destruction of our social interests, and the reduction of the Southern States to the condition of subject provinces.

It is not astonishing that a people educated in that school which always taught the maintenance of the rights of the few against the might of the many, which ceaselessly regarded the stipulation to protect and preserve the liberties and vested rights of every member of the Confederacy as the condition precedent upon which each State delegated certain powers necessary for self-protection to the General Government, should refuse to submit dishonorably to the destruction of their constitutional liberty, the insolent denial of their right to govern themselves and to hold and enjoy their property in peace.

In the exercise of that greatest of the rights reserved to the several States by the late Federal Constitution – namely, the right for each State to be judge for itself, as well of the infractions of the compact of the Union, as of the mode and measure of redress – the sovereignties composing the Confederate States resolved to sever their political connection with the United States and form a Government of their own, willing to effect this purpose peacefully at any sacrifice save that of honor and liberty, but determined even at the cost of war to assert their right to independence and self-government.”

The Teutoburg Forest Massacre: The Climactic Finish


Part 5 of 5

Mike Scruggs

 On the morning of September 11, Lucius Eggius led the first of two 4,000-man battle groups out of the Roman camp to the northwest. He would soon be followed by the second battle group commanded by Caeonius. The circumstances demanded that their seriously wounded comrades be left to their fate within the camp palisade.

In a short while, it became obvious to Eggius that their only plausible escape route was a narrow passage between Kalkriese Hill on their left and impassable marshes on the right, with less than 100 yards between the two. Further narrowing the passage, the Germans had constructed 500 yards of earthen ramparts, 15 feet wide and 5 feet high, on the lower slopes of Kalkriese Hill. The ramparts were topped with a palisade of posts and twisted tree limbs giving the German defenders protection up to chest level. These ramparts had many hidden gates camouflaged with brushwood.  From these gates, the Germans could launch surprise cavalry and infantry attacks, throwing the Romans into confusion. The German chieftain Arminius had obviously been an attentive student of Roman warfare and defense works.

Eggius quickly realized that marching his troops past a bottleneck hail of German lances, spears, rocks, and arrows with limited ability to engage the enemy on favorable terms was going to be both deadly and futile.  Eggius thus concentrated as many of his troops as possible and ordered an assault on a section of the rampart. Holding their shields above their heads in a “tortoise assault” formation, the Romans bravely engaged the Germans standing above them on palisaded ramparts.

About this time, Caeonius and the second Roman battle group, left the safety of the Roman camp and began to catch up with Eggius. When their rear guard was several hundred yards from the camp, they were suddenly assaulted by a formidable Bructeri infantry force surging from the forest on their left flank. No sooner had they positioned to defend against this furious, howling charge on their left, than a larger cavalry and infantry force assaulted their right flank, probably led by Arminius himself.

Many of the German cavalrymen were wearing Roman equipment. The second Roman battle group was quickly broken up and routed. Most were slaughtered in the confusing melee, but many fled into the rear of Eggius’s battle group, causing them confusion. A few hundred, including Caeonius, were able to make it back to the safety of the palisade protected Roman camp.

Meanwhile, the Roman “tortoise assault,” keeping their shields over their heads to produce a huge protective roof of shields that denied the Germans complete tactical domination because of the height of the ramparts and palisades, was having at least some success. Their shield-roof could also be used as a shield-ramp to place men and tools in a position to destroy or breach palisade defenses.  Several places on the ramparts and palisades had collapsed or were temporarily breached. When reports came forward that the second battle group had been almost totally destroyed, Eggius probably realized that Arminius would soon be in a position to attack his rear or block his retreat.

Moreover, the Germans then released cavalry and infantry assaults from the camouflaged gates of their ramparts, soon resulting in Roman confusion and disorder. Eggius was killed, and the courageous Roman “tortoise assault’ on the ramparts faltered and then failed. The Germans continued to use surprise attacks from hidden rampart gates to break up Roman units and destroy them in detail. In the end, pure numbers and Germanic fury overwhelmed the desperate and outmaneuvered Romans, who fought bravely to the last man. Only a small Roman cavalry vanguard was able to slip past the berserk fury of the last group Agrivarii warriors.

Having completed the destruction of the last Roman resistance beneath Kalkriese Hill, Arminius and an intimidating force arrived at the gate of the Roman camp, now called Felsenfeld. He sent a small group forward to offer safe conduct for Caeonius to speak with him. Arminius had only one question.  “Where is Varus?” Caeonius led him into the camp and showed him a grave, where the partially burned body of Varus was buried. At Arminius’s signal, the Germans secured the gate, overran the camp, and killed Caeonius and his remaining soldiers. The Germans dragged Varus’s half-burned body out of the shallow grave and severed his head. Varus’s head was carefully packed and sent to Maroboduus, Arminius’s chief Germanic rival and leader of the formidable Marcomanni tribal coalition. Maroboduus refused to be intimidated and sent the carefully packed head to Rome.
A number of other tribes joined Arminius in his rebellion against Rome, but in 14 AD Tiberius became emperor, succeeding Augustus. In 15 AD, Tiberius sent the young Roman General Germanicus to Germania to settle some scores, punishing the Cherusci, the Bructeri, the Marsi, and the Angrivarii for their support of Arminius. Germanicus’s legions also found the skeletons of many Roman soldiers in Teutoburg Forest.

His soldiers interred their remains with great care in several burial mounds, giving great honor and respect to their former comrades in arms. Germanicus was able to recover two of the three sacred Legion Eagles, symbolically equivalent to battle flags. The third was recovered in 41 AD. Germanicus defeated Arminius in several battles, but was never able to overcome him. In 16 AD, he captured Arminius’s pregnant 26-year-old wife, Thusnelda, and took her to Rome as a hostage. She was treated well there, but Arminius never saw her again. Arminius was murdered in 21 AD (age 40) by political rivals claiming he was growing too powerful. His only son, Thumelicus, whom he never saw, became a Roman gladiator and died young.
Probably, at least 4,000 men of Varus’s legions survived Teutoburg. That would include approximately 3,000 German auxiliaries and other legion soldiers whose cultural and family loyalties could not be bought with Roman money or Roman citizenship, especially in light of Varus’s terrible misunderstanding of and disregard for Germanic culture. Perhaps another thousand who went ahead with 19th Legion Prefect Lucius Caedicius to Aliso survived. The Germans also enslaved some military prisoners.

After 16 AD, the Romans never again tried to occupy Germanic territory east of the Rhine. Tiberius did not consider ruling Germany worth the cost in Roman wealth and Roman soldiers.

Although clearly superior in military power, the Romans had become thoroughly intimidated by the Germanic reputation for terrible and unrelenting fury gained by their near complete annihilation of three Roman legions at Teutoburg.

Larry Klayman asks for hearing on Obama’s refusal to comply with court’s order on immigration

Via Joe

An attorney for Sheriff Joe Arpaio made a filing with the federal judge who ordered the halting of President Obama’s executive amnesty, asking that a hearing be held on Obama’s refusal to comply with the court’s order.

The attorney, Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, stated to the judge in the filing:
“Several reports indicate that the executive branch under the Obama administration has not complied with this court’s temporary injunction, but continues full-speed to implement a grant of amnesty and related benefits to approximately 5 million citizens of foreign countries who are illegally in the United States under the defendants’ November 20, 2014, executive action programs implemented by several memoranda issued by Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson.”

Eric Holder’s Parting Advice to America: ‘Read Malcolm X’

 Eric Holder, Malcolm X

President Obama’s outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder made an eyebrow-raising book recommendation in his exit interview with Politico on Friday.

Asked by Politico’s Mike Allen to name the one book Holder would recommend for a young man coming to Washington to read, Holder recommended the work of controversial civil rights figure Malcolm X.

“I would hope that I say this not to every African-American of his age but for every American, that you read The Autobiography of Malcolm X to see the transition that that man went through, from petty criminal to a person who was severely and negatively afflicted by race, to somebody who ultimately saw the humanity in all of us, and that would be a book I would recommend to everybody,” said Holder.

A gunman murdered Boris Nemtsov, a leader in the Russian opposition and critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, in the middle of Moscow early Saturday morning.

An anonymous source told TASS that the gunman shot Nemtsov “with four shots from a pistol.” A team is still on site to work the investigation. Putin’s spokesman announced that the president “takes the investigation under his personal control.” Journalists in Moscow went to the scene and posted pictures; a few include Nemtsov’s dead body.

How convenient.

The Department of Justice announced earlier this week that they lacked any evidence to charge George Zimmerman with federal civil rights crimes for the self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin, a fact completely unsurprising to those who have researched the tri-racial Zimmerman’s background and his diverse group of family and friends.

The inability to charge Zimmerman with crimes he didn’t commit seems to be infuriating to President Obama, and to out-going Attorney General Eric Holder:

Then the men and women on Law Enforcement and other government types should be shitting their pants.

Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from 
sovereign citizen groups as equal to -- and in some cases greater than -- the threat from 
foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.

Seems to me to be a whole bunch of nothing.....right now. These folks aren't a danger....yet. Not unless you try to take their country from them. Steal too many of their freedoms? Yeah, then you can worry.  They won't be a danger to their fellow citizens, but to the government that tries to steal their freedoms?Your fear of right wing people is, at best, overblown..... For now. You really have nothing to worry about.

Here's the ​thing, Boys and Girls: If this were true, and the "Right Wing Extremists" were really a danger, then you folks had better get your worldly affairs in order....'Cause when they decide it is time (and I know and interact with a fair number of those folks you label "Right Wing Extremists") then they are gonna come, and for you, they are gonna bring screaming bloody hell with 'em.....

Defense Intelligence Told NOT To Update Obama on bin Laden Documents & Obama’s Failure

Via David

Col. Derek Harvey (Ret.)

The documents SEAL Team Six confiscated the night they killed Osama bin Laden, in his Abbottabad compound, were deep-sixed by the Obama administration. Not interested, al-Qaeda’s decimated, the war’s over.

Bin Laden Compound, Abbottabad, Pakistan
The U.S. government captured more than one million documents during the May 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Top administration officials initially described it as “a treasure trove” of intelligence on al Qaeda and its affiliates. But more than three years later, the senior DIA official who ran the project, Colonel Derek Harvey, says the intelligence community has fully analyzed less than 10 percent of the collection. Top DIA officials were told directly to stop providing analyses based on the bin Laden documents. The administration had decided to end the war on terror, and no amount of new intelligence about threats from al Qaeda was going to change their minds. So they chose ignorance.

Obama’s Failure

 Barack Obama wants us all to simmer down about Iran. He wants Senator Bob Menendez, a fellow Democrat, and the donors he represents to butt out of the sanctions debate. He wants Republicans to quit crying wolf about Iran’s nuclear weapons program. He wants the media to stop hyping terror threats. He wants the American people in the dark about the secret correspondence he’s had for years with Iran’s supreme leader. He wants John Boehner to be mindful of protocol. And most of all, he wants Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop questioning his accommodationist approach to Tehran.

Homosexuality in The Bible

Homosexuality was first mentioned in the Bible in 1946 in the Revised Standard Version. There is no mention of or reference to homosexuality in any Bible prior to this – only interpretations have been made. Anti-LGBT Bible interpretations commonly cite only eight verses in the Bible that they interpret to mean homosexuality is a sin; Eight verses in a book of thousands!

The Queen James Bible seeks to resolve interpretive ambiguity in the Bible as it pertains to homosexuality: We edited those eight verses in a way that makes homophobic interpretations impossible.

Leaving the Global Grid And Being Arrested For It
 :) !


Larry Fink, the CEO of BlackRock, controls about $4.3 trillion in assets (and has influence on how $10 trillion more is allocated).  As a point of reference, that is about the size of the entire US economy.

Larry sees the world as a tightly interconnected "financial grid." Larry believes that a big part of his job is to know which parts of this global grid represent opportunities and which parts are dangerous.

That makes sense. Asset allocation accounts for about ~80% of any big financial fund's performance and BlackRock's extraordinary success implies that Larry has been getting it right for decades.
