Norwegian, Danish Ships Rescue 1,000 African Invading Migrants in Mediterranean

to validate his openness. I would go so far as to say Europe is doomed."

Doomed, it is. 

 migrants in sicily

The European Union decided Friday to share 40,000 of the refugees landing in Italy and Greece but foot-dragging and verbal sniping over the move exposed deep divisions about how to deal with Europe's massive migrant influx.

While the size of the challenge is daunting, the EU's response has been underwhelming. 

More than 114,000 migrants fleeing wars or poverty have been plucked from the Mediterranean so far this year as they try to cross in unseaworthy smugglers' boats. Some 2,600 have died or are missing along the route, according to the International Organization for Migration.

Well worth your time and especially the one man play, The Prince of Dark Corners

From a poor mountain farmer to the most notorious outlaw in the United States, 'Major' Lewis Redmond is returned to life with a riveting performance by Milton Higgins in Gary Carden's celebrated play.

Winner of the PAUL GREEN MULTIMEDIA AWARD from the NC Historian's Society

Bonus features include the award-winning documentary The OUTLAW LEWIS REDMOND

At the time of his capture in 1881, Lewis Redmond was the most famous outlaw in the country, outshining contemporaries Billy-The-Kid and Jesse James.

To the people of Southern Appalachia he was an American Robin Hood, fighting revenuers and bootlegging ‘moonshine’ to pay their taxes and save their land in the lean and hopeless years of Reconstruction. Northern journalists depicted him as a degenerate, cold-blooded murderer, even as Southern Appalachia celebrated him as a hero. Gary Carden's masterful play sheds light on a time and place in American history that has long been shrouded in mystery.

Texas Governor Abbott's Statement On Supreme Court Ruling On Same-Sex Marriage

Via comment by Anonymous on Alabama Supreme Court orders probate judges to sto...

Governor Greg Abbott today released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling:

“The Supreme Court has abandoned its role as an impartial judicial arbiter and has become an unelected nine-member legislature. Five Justices on the Supreme Court have imposed on the entire country their personal views on an issue that the Constitution and the Court’s previous decisions reserve to the people of the States.

“Despite the Supreme Court’s rulings, Texans’ fundamental right to religious liberty remains protected. No Texan is required by the Supreme Court’s decision to act contrary to his or her religious beliefs regarding marriage.

“The Texas Constitution guarantees that ‘[n]o human authority ought, in any case whatsoever, to control or interfere with the rights of conscience in matters of religion.’ The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees the free exercise of religion; and the Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act, combined with the newly enacted Pastor Protection Act, provide robust legal protections to Texans whose faith commands them to adhere to the traditional understanding of marriage.

“As I have done in the past, I will continue to defend the religious liberties of all Texans—including those whose conscience dictates that marriage is only the union of one man and one woman. Later today, I will be issuing a directive to state agencies instructing them to prioritize the protection of Texans’ religious liberties.”

Win the Fight!

It's been a while since we've seen the Sparklie of Death.

Remember, a Sparklie is something that distracts you while something worse is happening that is genuinely dangerous.

In this particular case, what is happening is a nearly literal Sparklie of Death.

The Confederate Battle Flag is the brightest Sparklie at the moment.  It is not in the sky all by itself, however.  Right up there with it are the calls for revealing KKK member info, calls to take down the Jefferson Memorial, Illegals, ISIS, and much, much more.

Instead of fighting the removal of the Battle Flag from places you consider important, might I suggest that you hoist it, and run off the invaders?  Petitions to defend your culture - really?

Road Pirates -- Assemble! "Desert Snow" is Coming to Idaho

Via III Percent Patriots

Highway Robbery in Progress: Desert Snow-trained Iowa State Trooper Justin Simmons carries out a shakedown. 
It isn’t often that honest people receive detailed intelligence about a planned gathering of violent men who steal for a living and kill with impunity. An event of that kind will occur from August 10-12th here in Idaho.

In fact, I can provide the specific address of the armed robbers’ summit -- 700 South Stratford Drive in Meridian. The location is conspicuously marked and easy to find:
It is the Idaho Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST) Academy, which will host a two-day session of Desert Snow’s “Phase 2015” asset forfeiture workshop
“Civil asset forfeiture,” for the mercifully uninitiated, is a procedure in which police officers and the agencies that employ them steal money and property from people who have never been convicted of a crime, and quite often never face criminal charges. The agency designates the desired property as “proceeds” of illicit activity and then files an “in rem” civil lawsuit against it – not the owner of the property, but the property itself. In this process, the burden of proof is placed on the victim, rather than the perpetrator.

SCOTUS to churches: Hey, no worries, you can still “advocate” for traditional marriage

2005: Our marriage won't affect your rights. 

2014: Bake a cake or be destroyed. 

2015: We won't touch your church. Promise. Tee hee.

On this slender thread does the promise of religious liberty hang. Justice Anthony Kennedy, in his majority opinion in Obergefell that declares same-sex marriage a constitutional right, barely mentions the means by which most Americans conduct their weddings — houses of worship. Only on page 27 does Kennedy get around to addressing the connection between church and state, and the assurances in this paragraph are less than compelling, to say the least:

US Supreme Court gives North Carolina 'Choose Life' plates new life

 North Carolinas Choose Life license plate.

A federal appeals court must reconsider whether North Carolina can issue "Choose Life" license plates.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday ordered the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider its ruling last year that the state could not issue a license plate with an anti-abortion slogan unless it also issued a plate with the opposite point of view.

The order to rehear the case came after the justices ruled 5-4 last week that Texas could refuse to issue Confederate battle flag plates. In that ruling, the Supreme Court said plates are government property and don't have to offer both sides of the debate.

The most celebrated Democratic presidents are also – by far – the most race-obsessed.

These American presidents care much less about content of character than they do about melanin levels. Whether their obsession is how black Americans can help launch the Democrats into power, such as in the case of Lyndon B. Johnson; or if the disdain for the “other” is really just straight-up racism, such as in the case of Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the common thread – of progressivism – remains.

The Confederate flag and cultural fascism

Via Billy


You cultural fascists have struck again.

You have shown you will say most anything, and do most anything to advance your radical agenda. But that’s not enough, is it? Your intent is to ban any opposition. Your goal is to ban even the expression of dissension.

You’re doing it everywhere. You are insisting scientists skeptical of global warming be banned from symposia discussing the subject. You shout down, even physically attack conservatives who dare express opinions on college campuses – that is, if you don’t succeed in banning them altogether. 

You demand TV networks fire Christians who dare to quote Scripture publicly. You pressure advertisers to stop their sponsorship of conservative talk shows, inventing scandals to justify your campaigns. You pressure businesses to fire employee for supporting traditional marriage. You call on government to imprison Christians who will not abide by the gay agenda.

Now it’s the Confederate flag.

I don’t know what’s more offensive, your disgusting character assassination or the outright embarrassment  of politicians and businesses quaking in their shoes at the thought  they might be next on your hit list.

You Must Read Gettysburg Film Director Ron Maxwell’s Take on Erasing Confederate Symbols


  General Armistead's Final request

 Today's utopians tread a dangerous path.

After the murders at Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church by a young white racist, a consensus has been reached on the issue of taking down the Confederate flag from South Carolina’s soldier’s monument, where it has flown since being removed from the state capitol in 2000.

The flag was flown from the capitol only since the early 1960s, when segregationists resurrected what was in fact the Confederate battle flag as their symbol for opposition to desegregation. Other states quickly followed South Carolina’s example.

Evidently, this may not be enough to satisfy the cultural enforcers on the American Left.
Suddenly, anything in our history that is somehow connected with the sin of slavery — and it was a sin against humanity — is fair game to be excised from America’s past. As John Hinderaker writes at Powerline, the Democrats are getting “their crazy on.” First it’s the Confederate flag, then statues, monuments, and our currency that celebrate racists, then perhaps the American flag itself.

Remember those leftists who after 9/11 refused to fly the flag, since they argued it stood for oppression?

Anonymous CSA Enters The Fray, Vows To Bring Justice To Anti-Southern Cultural Terrorists


An online persona, battling for the future of the Southern people, has decided to launch an offensive against those who are scheming to shatter the cultural identity of an entire ethnic group.

Calling himself/themselves “Anonymous CSA,” the plan calls for the exposure of individuals and groups that are leading the latest wave of Marxist terrorism via mainstream media, political pressure, and financial boycott.

This week’s target, who may be remembered by this site’s cherished readers, is a Mr. Patrick Hogan, a morbidly obese oxygen bandit whose goals include the identification and destruction of all remaining Confederate memorials, statues, and tombs throughout the United States.

While the video itself is downright hilarious, including still photos of Patrick’s rotund bulk clad within a furry animal costume of some sort, the topic underlying all remains serious to the utmost, and we must always keep this in the forefront of our minds.

Remember that traitors and invasive degenerates like Patrick Hogan represent an enemy that wishes to utterly demolish all that the Southern folk hold sacred. They cannot win, for without a cohesive identity and understanding of history, our progeny stand doomed to a life of brainwashing, manipulation, and suffering.

The Real Reason for the Anti-Confederate Flag Hysteria


Every couple of years the totalitarian socialist Left in America (a.k.a., the Democratic Party and all of its appendages) pretends to be indignant about the existence of the Confederate flag somewhere.  The lapdog cultural Marxist media fall in line, treating the siting of the flag in the same way they would treat the siting of an Ebola victim in a large crowd.  Americans are reminded once again by the New York/New England/Ivy League-educated presstitute class that they should hate Southerners and all things Southern.  As Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart recently whined in faux horror, Southerners “waged war against the United States” government!  Waaaaaaaaah!

The anti-Confederate flag hysteria is only one small part of the Left’s general strategy, however.  It is part of their overriding strategy of diverting the public’s attention away from all the grotesque failures of leftist interventionism, from the welfare state to the government takeover of education to the war on drugs and beyond.  The neocons who run the Republican Party are usually complicit in all of this.

Federal Judge Orders Brady Center to Pay Ammo Dealer’s Legal Fees After Dismissing Lawsuit

Via avordvet

 Pile of bullets

A federal judge has ordered that the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence pay the legal fees of an online ammunition dealer it sued for the Aurora movie theater shooting.

The order, which was issued last week, comes after Judge Richard P. Matsch dismissed the gun control group’s suit that sought to hold Lucky Gunner legally responsible for the 2012 shooting. The Brady Center had argued in their suit that the way Lucky Gunner sells ammunition is “unreasonably dangerous and create a public nuisance.”

“A crazed, homicidal killer should not be able to amass a military arsenal, without showing his face or answering a single question, with the simple click of a mouse,” Brady Center’s Legal Action Project Director Jonathan Lowy said at the time. “If businesses choose to sell military-grade equipment online, they must screen purchasers to prevent arming people like James Holmes.”

Judge Matsch disagreed with the Brady Center’s argument. He said the suit was filed for propaganda purposes.

“Under this pressure, the school’s leaders sent an email to families saying they would give the test after all. But the 280 juniors opted out anyway.”

Alabama Supreme Court orders probate judges to stop issuing same-sex marriage licenses for 25 days

The Alabama state supreme court today issued an order that effectively keeps probate judges from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples for 25 days.

That's the interpretation of Chief Justice Roy Moore, who recused himself.

Moore said his view of the order is that the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Friday ending the gay marriage order is stalled in Alabama.

Seven of the nine justices concurred with the order. Only Moore and Supreme Court Justice Greg Shaw joined Moore did not sign on.

The Supreme Court’s Marriage Decision: Communist Goal Realized

Via Billy


While I have written many articles on the topic of the 45 communist goals, it can't be stressed enough that achieving "marriage equality" for homosexuals was definitely one of them. The Supreme Court's decision on Friday, June 26 was no surprise to many of us, and in many ways it was used to continue the moral degradation of our society.

The Obama Administration, as surely we have all seen by now, took the pleasure of flaunting their victory by posting pictures of the White House lit up with the colors of the homosexual's rainbow flag. This was a "stick in your face gesture" as they know that the vast majority of Americans disapprove of the homosexual agenda, and there is an agenda.

This was also a symbolic gesture in the eyes of the left because they view this as the replacement of the old culture with a new one. It was no coincidence, in my opinion, that this redefining marriage decision happened at the same time there was all out war declared on the confederate flag. We are, after all, dealing with communists, whose entire agenda revolves around breaking down the moral standards by which many of us live our lives.

Investigators are searching for one or more accomplices in an attack on a luxury hotel in a Tunisian beach resort that killed at least 38 people, some of them sunbathers on the beach, an official said Sunday.

The father and three roommates of the attacker were detained and being questioned in the capital, Tunis, Interior Ministry spokesman Mohamed Ali Aroui told The Associated Press. The attacker has been identified as Seifeddine Rezgui, a 24-year-old graduate of Tunisia's Kairouan University where he had been living with the other students.

"We are sure that others helped, but did not participate," Aroui said. "They participated indirectly."
