The Secret Mountain Our Spies Will Hide In When Washington Is Destroyed

It’s after midnight. From this mountaintop perch, he can still see the radioactive remains of what used to be Washington, D.C., illuminating the horizon as he exits the helicopter. The nuclear glow serves as stark proof that the intelligence community failed to foresee and prevent the worst, but at least someone was smart enough to build this mountain bunker in rural Virginia for him and his fellow spies to regroup and survive. He opens the reinforced steel door and begins his descent.

This isn’t paranoid conspiracy fiction. This exact scenario was played out this week.

America’s Preparathon, yesterday’s national pep rally—brought to you by the Department of Homeland Security—tipped me off to this real underground bunker north of Charlottesville, Virginia. The bunker’s purpose is completely secret, though I was easily able to verify that it has been expanded and spiffed up in the years since 9/11 at a cost of tens of millions of dollars. It serves as a compact parable for everything that is wrong with government.

Yesterday’s Preparathon was described by its sponsor FEMA as “a grassroots campaign for action.” Washington’s definition of action is lining up and marching, saluting, and following orders. But there’s a secret definition, written between the lines of the Constitution and public laws: Officialdom evacuating from disorderly and disobedient America before the citizenry catches up or catches on. Countless billions have been spent on this endeavor over the years, a secret orgy of preparedness going on behind the scenes, one that ensures Washington can defend itself, take care of its own, and survive no matter what.

George Soros to Enjoy ‘Shared Sacrifice’ of Paying $6.7 Billion Tax

Via Joe

Soros (Associated Press)


George Soros is often called the “Godfather of the Left” for supporting a worldwide network of progressive causes with over $550 million in donations. But the world’s 27th wealthiest person–according to Forbes–with a net worth of about $30 billion has allegedly used tax deferral to prevent paying any taxes on $13.3 billion profit. Now, according to an Irish regulatory filing by Soros, he will soon be enjoying the shared sacrifice of paying a 50 percent tax that will wipeout a quarter of his net worth.

ISIS militants execute 600 Yezidis northern Iraq

Via Joe

On Friday the so-called Sharia Court of the Islamic State group (IS/ISIS) reportedly executed 600 hostages from the Yezidi community of Shingal (Sinjar) in the Talafar district in northern Iraq. 
The group piled the bodies into the well of Alo Antar on al-Ayyadiya highway, local sources reported.

Shahin Shingali, a fighter in the ranks of the Peshmerga forces, stated to ARA News that since Friday the IS radicals transferred nearly 700 Yezidi hostages to Talafar.

“Without a direct intervention by the international community, Iraq will be witnessing more genocides against innocent people at the hands of the IS terrorists,” Shingali said.

Ethic Composition of CS & USA forces

Via Carl

The soldiers who fought for the Confederacy did not come from diverse ethnic backgrounds. The majority of them had ancestors from Scotland, England, Wales, and Ireland; many others, however, could point to roots in France, Southern Europe, and North America itself. The Hispanic soldiers of such regiments as the 33rd Texas Cavalry, C.S., also served, and could count forebears farther back than their Eastern brothers, who boasted ancestors that had founded their states or commonwealths. The Easterners chose their officers from among the descendants of men who had led the revolution: George Washington's grandnephew, John Augustine Washington, died fighting for Virginia.

Robert E. Lee's father, "Light-Horse Harry" Lee, had been a trusted friend of Washington's, and one of his most skilled cavalrymen. Joseph and Albert S. Johnston could name Revolutionary forebears. JEB Stuart was a relative of Virginia patriots who had helped frame the Constitution. The Texans chose leaders from among the patriots who had formed the old Texas Republic, or who were descended from the lines of the Spanish Conquistadors. And in parts of the deep South, the Cherokee Nation allied itself as an equal with the Confederacy, contributing many brave regiments of Native Americans and giving the South one of its most colorful generals, the Cherokee chief General Stand Watie.

 The sense of honor that so often hampered as well as aided Confederate efforts to obtain independence could be legitimately traced back to the staunch patriotism of more distant Celtic ancestors, who had in their turn fought bravely against tremendous odds in hopes of attaining their goals, or to the unbending pride of the old Spanish nobility with their rigid moral codes, or to the quiet pride of the ancestral Cherokee. There was a kind of paternalism, a cavalier sense of nobility and a dogged belief in the rightness of their cause which hallmarked the Confederate forces-and in the end, according to many historians, may have been one of the major causes of their defeat. If so, then it was also the stuff of which their survival and rebirth as a region was made, for such qualities generally allow a people to come back strongly from a devastating defeat.

The Union forces were a more disparate lot. Because the North was not ringed about by a blockade, immigration continued unabated, and was in fact enhanced, by the war; some of the newcomers, grateful to be in the land of the free, joined up within months of their arrival in hopes of somehow becoming more worthy of their new land. But the forces that marched off at the beginning of the war to subdue the secessionists were made up of just as many old Revolutionary families as the South could boast; descendants of Paul Revere, of Ethan Allen, and of other colonial Americans were among them. Whole regiments from the privileged families of the East Coast marched off to war; their commanding officers were very often their professors from the university, a fact of life in the South, as well.

German immigrants from Pennsylvania and western New York; Swedes and Norwegians from the upper Midwest; Irish and Italians from Boston, Philadelphia, and New York; and the North, too, had its Texan contingents, such as the Second Texas Cavalry (union).

On both sides, the men brought along with them to war their own ethnic and racial stereotypes. The industrious drive of some of the Northerners made them look down on the Southerners as a slothful lot. Some of the fastidious Germans and Scandinavians were appalled at what they termed "squalor" and laziness-until they experienced their first deep South summer, and learned why life takes a slower pace in other climates. The Southerners, on the other hand, were by turns annoyed or amused at the incessant busyness of their Northern brethren, believing that gentlemen did not need to always "have something to do." The Southerners who went off to war were almost unilaterally horse-oriented, be they Virginians, Kentuckians or Texans; Northern boys, many of them raised in cities, had to be taught how to ride at all before they could begin more basic training as cavalrymen. And all of them were men convinced they were right, and that God was on their side.

Friday Night Jihad - Gerald Lostutter

The inaugural Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest hosted by Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) is sold out and ready for Sunday evening’s festivities.

The event is billed as an expression of free speech said to be under attack from radical Islamic groups like those who attacked Charlie Hebdo in January. The exhibit will be held on Sunday, May 3, at the Curtis Culwell Center, 5-7 p.m., in the Dallas suburb of Garland, Texas.

“At a time when American Muslim groups in the US should have stood up for free speech and showed the world the way forward, they chose to stand with the Hebdo jihadists,” said Geller in an January email to Breitbart Texas.

House Armed Services Committee Approves “Amnesty Amendment”

Via Joe

The House Armed Services Committee approved an amendment to the FY2016 National Defense Authorization Act from Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) to allow illegal immigrants into the U.S. military.

Unsurprisingly, supporters couch the giveaway in language like saying enlisting illegal immigrants is “vital to the national interest.”
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) is one of the few members of Congress who opposes Gallego’s “amnesty amendment.”

1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda: Unrestored with 81 Original Miles

ESTIMATE: $600,000 - $800,000 

Never restored and driven just 81 miles over its entire life, this is the lowest-mileage 1970 Hemi Cuda known to exist.

It was special-ordered and purchased new at Shreves Plymouth-Dodge in June 1970 by Bill Reardon of Clarksburg, West Virginia, who was finally buying his dream car at 62 years of age. One of the last 10 Hemi Cudas built in 1970, it was exactly as he imagined it: Tor Red with a Black interior; Torqueflite automatic transmission; Shaker hood with tie downs and color-matching steel wheels with dog-dish hub caps and Goodyear Polyglas GT tires.

IRS seizes rural convenience store owner’s career savings in another horrible abuse of civil forfeiture

Via Bill

Lyndon McLellan, a rural North Carolina convenience store owner, woke up one day to discover the IRS had seized every penny of the $107,000 in his bank account. It was all the money he had put away over the course of 13 years of assiduous, hard work.

“This is all I’ve ever done. I was raised in the store business; I’m here 12-13 hours a day, seven days a week,” he explains. “To make this kind of money selling soft drinks, cigarettes and hot dogs, somebody’s gotta work, okay? It wasn’t just handed to us. It was taken from us – but it wasn’t handed to us.”

Jobs, lack of.......

During the April 30 broadcast of "The O'Reilly Factor," host Bill O'Reilly went on a rant about the protesters and/or rioters in Baltimore.
"How can anyone provide a job that pays a decent salary to somebody who can barely read or write?
To somebody who can't speak English?
To somebody who has tattoos all over their body, who's defiant, disrespectful, and doesn't even want to work because they have a sense of entitlement that says 'their victims and you owe me.'"

Operative predicts breaking point in 2016

Via avordvet

 Baltimore's current unrest may go nationwide in 2016,

A young political operative predicted in a major interview recently that the U.S. will reach its breaking point in 2016, prior to the general election, leading to nationwide unrest, racial tension, threats from Jihadists who are already hiding on our own soil, and a general Constitutional crisis representing two conflicting philosophies concerning the proper role of government in a free society. Former Carter pollster Pat Caddell agreed with the assessment. Caddell has been a major Democrat on the national scene ever since he rose to prominence during his work within the Carter Administration.

Many believe that the U.S. has already reached the breaking point. Others insist that this belief is not true but that such a catastrophe will be hastened by the use of extraordinary and oppressive means, including running roughshod over the rights and protections of citizens who condemn the current decimation of Constitutional law.

Trey Gowdy Calls For Halt To Spartanburg Refugee “Resettlement”

In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry a few weeks ago, Gowdy asked about not only the background checks, but also some other very practical matters that all regions chosen to participate in USRAP should be asking:
  1. What state and local officials have been notified and consulted?
  2. When are the first refugees expected to arrive in Spartanburg?
  3. What federal, state, and local benefits are the refugees entitled to receive a) upon designation as a refugee and b) upon resettlement in the Spartanburg area?
  4. How many refugees will be resettled in the Spartanburg area?
  5. How are the refugees chosen to resettle in Spartanburg?
  6. What is the country of origin of each of the refugees to be resettled in the Spartanburg area?
  7. Who is responsible for ensuring housing, employment, and education services for the resettled refugees?
  8. Who is responsible for ensuring resettled refugees maintain employment, as opposed to tracking employment for the first few months after being resettled?
  9. How many of the refugees to be resettled in the Spartanburg area are of the age to attend K–12 schools? Of those, how many need the local government to provide interpreters or teachers who speak the native language of the refugee for the students?
  10. Do any of the refugees to be resettled in the Spartanburg area have criminal convictions? If so, for what crimes has each been convicted?
  11. Please explain the background check process performed on refugees scheduled to be resettled in Spartanburg.
  12. Will this be the only time refugees will be resettled to the Spartanburg area pursuant to the agency’s proposal? Or can additional refugees be resettled pursuant to the proposal?

Exclusion of Free Blacks In the North

This piece was originally published at

“[R]ace prejudice seems stronger in those states that have abolished slavery than in those where it still exists, and nowhere is it more intolerant than in those states where slavery was never known.” –Alexis De Tocqueville, Democracy in America

In some Northern states, after emancipation, blacks were legally allowed to vote, marry whites, file lawsuits, or sit on juries. In most, they were not. But even where the right was extended by law, often the white majority did not allow it to happen. In Massachusetts in 1795, despite the absence of any law prohibiting on black voting, Judge James Winthrop and Thomas Pemberton wrote, “that Negroes could neither elect nor be elected to office in that state.”[1] De Tocqueville, in Philadelphia in 1831, asked why, since black men had the right to vote there, none ever dared do so. The answer came back: “The law with us is nothing if it is not supported by public opinion.” When Ohio’s prohibition against blacks testifying in legal cases involving white people was lifted in 1849, observers acknowledged that, at least in the southern part of the state, where most of the blacks lived, social prejudice would keep the ban in practical effect.
