Flamethrowers For Sale



Flamethrowers were gruesome weapons of war and so controversial that the U.S. military stopped using them after Vietnam.

But as crazy as it may sound, they are available for sale to the public.

A Cleveland startup called Throwflame is selling flamethrowers for $1,599 that can shoot fire for 50 feet. Another company, Ion Productions Team of Detroit, is selling $900 flamethrowers that can eject flames for 25 feet. Both companies started selling them this year.

Major Henry “Light Horse Harry” Lee, Father Of General Robert E.Lee, Raids Paulus Hook, New Jersey 1779 


On this day in 1779, a Patriot force consisting of 300 men led by Major Henry “Light Horse Harry” Lee assaults the defensive positions of the British at Paulus Hook, New Jersey, now known as Jersey City. Lee wins one of only eight medals awarded by Congress during the war–and the only one awarded to a soldier beneath the rank of general–for his role in this action.

Although Lee planned to attack immediately after midnight, his forces set off later than expected and lost some of their number in their march through the surrounding marshland. Still, the 23-year-old College of New Jersey (now Princeton University) graduate was able to capture the position, possibly because the British mistook the Patriots for Hessian mercenaries until they reached the fort’s gate.

Although the Patriots damaged the fort, took 50 lives and 158 prisoners, they failed to destroy the structure or spike its cannon. With daybreak approaching, Lee decided to withdraw, concerned that the British would send reinforcements from New York City across the Hudson River. Thus the fort remained in British control until the war ended and the British evacuated and sailed for home on November 22, 1783. The neighborhood erected a monument in memory of the battle in 1903.

Despite the limited success of the action, it gave Patriot morale a major boost. Following the assault, several officers jealous of the flamboyant Lee’s success drafted a substantial set of charges, including reckless endangerment of his men, against him, leading to his court martial. Lee offered his own persuasive defense and was not only vindicated but praised for his actions by the court; he was then awarded the Congressional medal.

Planned Parenthood Horror: Baby's Heart Beat as Brain Harvested

A newly released video in the series from the Center for Medical Progress about Planned Parenthood's organ harvesting practices  is even more horrifying than previous ones.

The video features a former worker for Stem Express, the middleman organ-procurement company that has been mentioned in previous videos, talking about an organ extraction she was compelled to participate in.

Holly O'Donnell, a former blood and tissue technician for Stem Express, relates how an intact brain was harvested from a late-term male child whose heart was still beating after an abortion.

O'Donnell said she was working one day when a co-worker called her over to see something "kinda cool."

The Abbeville Institute: Join Us In Stone Mountain: Confederate Heritage and the Fracturing of American Identity

TOPIC: The Southern novelist, Walker Percy, argued that the very form of the mind of an historic people is found in its most basic symbols. Less than a year after the unconstitutional and brutal invasion of the South by Lincoln’s forces, the Confederacy knew by heritage and history that it must fly the St. Andrews Cross, the diagonal cross which through the centuries and in many nations has commanded “resistance to tyrants.” President Eisenhower kept a portrait of Robert E. Lee to the right of his desk in the Oval office for two terms.

Join us for a thoughtful discussion of what Confederate symbols mean and why they are under attack. For over a century Confederate monuments and symbols were commemorated as part of a complex American national identity. Recent efforts by political and cultural elites to remove those symbols are shameful and ignorant actions which demonstrate that these leaders and their supporters envision an America bereft of its honor, character, and founding principles.

Muslim Book Store

So, I was walking through Chicago and I saw that there was a “Muslim Book Store.” I was wondering what exactly was in a Muslim bookstore, so I went in.

As I was wandering around taking a look, the clerk stopped me and asked if he could help me.

I imagine I didn’t look like his normal clientele, so I asked, “Do you have a copy of Donald Trump’s book on his U.S. Immigration Policy regarding Muslims and illegal Mexicans?”

The clerk said, “F#$% off, get out and stay out!”

I said, “Yes, that’s the one. Do you have it in paperback?”

Brilliantly played by Putin, as usual. 

Following the 2014 Crimean referendum which saw the Black Sea peninsula join Russia shortly after the Ukraine presidential coup and ensuing territorial conflict between pro-Kiev and pro-Moscow regions, many speculated it is only a matter of time before the Donetsk region, subsequently elevated into People's Republic status, which has been engaged in constant warfare with the Kiev army (which is in such bad shape it recently drafted a disabled man without arms) would follow suit.

We now have the answer.

Having waited for over a year for the Ukraine civil war/conflict to be relegated to back page status, if that, Putin has finally given the green light, and as Xinhua reports, leaders of the self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" are planning to hold a referendum on seceding from Ukraine and joining Russia, the Donetsk-based Ostrov news agency reported Wednesday.

The referendum is scheduled to take place some in early to mid November, or specifically two to four weeks after the Oct. 18 local elections, said the news agency.
The ballot papers for the referendum designed in the colors of the Russian flag have already been printed, it said.

Putin's tiny army: Russian child soldiers trained in battle tactics, weapons and hand-to-hand combat to 'repel any enemy of the Motherland'

Via comment by Anhourofwolves on Academic Fascism: Part II "Here's how children, CHILDREN FFS, are being reared in Putin's Russia. Now. Does anyone think these kids are going to need a therapy dog and some crayons when ISIS comes knocking?"

Impressionable age: The club appears to urge Russian parents not to wait until their child becomes a compulsive gambler, drug addict or alcoholic, before sending them to the club

Some parents would gasp at the thought of their children playing with a toy gun, but these Russian children are actually encouraged to take up real arms.

Military sports club, 'Berkut', (meaning golden eagle), trains up young Russian, who dream of joining the elite units of the Russian army and fighting under the command of President Vladimir Putin.

Academic Fascism: Part II

Last week’s column highlighted college campus absurdities and the ongoing attack on free speech and plain common sense. As parents gear up to fork over $20,000 to $60,000 for college tuition, they might benefit from knowing what greets their youngsters. Deceitful college officials, who visit high schools to recruit students and talk to parents, conceal the worst of their campus practices. Let’s expose some of it.

Christina Hoff Sommers is an avowed feminist and a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. She’s spent a lifetime visiting college campuses. Recently, upon her arrival at Oberlin College, Georgetown University and other campuses, trigger warnings were issued asserting, in her words, that her “very presence on campus” was “a form of violence” and that she was threatening students' mental health. At Oberlin, 30 students and the campus therapy dog retired to a “safe room” with soft music, crayons and coloring books to escape any uncomfortable facts raised by Sommers.

The problem for students and some professors is that Sommers challenges the narrative, with credible statistical facts, that women are living in a violent, paternalistic rape culture. As a result, she has been “excommunicated from the church of campus feminism” in order to protect women from her uncomfortable facts. This prompted Sommers to say, “There’s a move to get young women in combat, and yet on our campuses, they are so fragile they can’t handle a speaker with dissenting views.” I wonder whether there will be demands for the military to have therapy dogs and safe rooms in combat situations.

This "One Person, One Vote" Supreme Court Case Could Destroy the Democrats

The question is whether district size should be set to the people living there or the people voting there. 


There's the stuff that the left spends a lot of time yelling about. And then there's the stuff that keeps them up late at night. Evenwel v. Abbott is in the latter category.

What is Evenwel v. Abbott? It's got a pedigree of longshot Supreme Court cases that won.

Voters Want to Build A Wall, Deport Felon Illegal Immigrants

As far as voters are concerned – and not just Republicans -  Donald Trump has a winning formula for fighting illegal immigration.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 70% of Likely Republican Voters agree with the GOP presidential hopeful that the United States should build a wall along the Mexican border to help stop illegal immigration. Seventeen percent (17%) of GOP voters disagree, while 13% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Ninety-two percent (92%) of Republicans agree that the United States should deport all illegal immigrants who have been convicted of a felony in this country. Only four percent (4%) disagree.

Among all likely voters, 51% favor building a wall on the border; 37% disagree, and 12% are not sure. Eighty percent (80%) support the deportation of all illegal immigrants convicted of a felony; only 11% are opposed.

W&L, Denies SCV Use of LEE Chapel

In what should come as no surprise to any of us who have been closely following the shenanigans at W&L, Ken Ruscio, Washington & Lee University President, has decided to use his final year in office to continue the purge of all things Confederate at the University by denying the Stonewall Brigade, Sons of Confederate Veterans the use of the LEE Chapel for a Memorial Service to Robert E. Lee, on Lee-Jackson Day in Lexington in January, 2016.  The Stonewall Brigade had rented the Chapel for the service for the past 15 years.
This decision means that Ruscio and other officials at Washington & Lee University have now effectively caved to EACH AND EVERY  one of the demands presented last spring by  "The Committee", a group of 6 Law School Student agitators.  

The University that owes its very existence to Robert E. Lee, will not allow a memorial service to be held in his memory in the LEE Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day.

Initially, officials blamed the "political" activities of the SCV for this decision.  Once the absurdity of this claim was realized, they changed course and announced that it was due to the "uncivil" actions of SCV members, including disparaging and mean remarks on social media.  The closing of the Chapel for remodeling last January was a convenient excuse.  This one is obscene.  To refuse to allow the SCV to hold a service because of the fallout that has occurred and justified criticism received in the wake of their actions is despicable.  To suggest that the university would have allowed the SCV to use the chapel if members would have simply sit quietly by while the administration launched its assaults its absurd. 
Let's call this decision exactly what it is...another lame attempt to appease the demands of SIX agitators and their friends, who will not be satisfied until every trace of Robert E. Lee is gone from the University, and the school's history is completely rewritten to accommodate their agenda. 

You may recall that this is not the first time University officials have had to change their "official statement" in these matters.  Last July, officials first denied that a 15 year old SCV member was made to remove his shirt and turn it in side out, remove his cap and name badge before being allowed to enter school property...all because of the SCV logo on the attire.  Once confronted with the accounts of several eye witnesses, the University changed course and confirmed the account.
We are learning of numerous accounts of alumni withdrawing financial support and pressuring W&L officials to reverse these decisions, and understand that the discontent among W&L supporters continues to grow.  

The Stonewall Brigade has announced that the annual Lee-Jackson events will be held in Lexington in 2016, despite the change in venue for the RE Lee memorial service.  We will be there, and hope that this latest assault, and the continued anti-Confederate atmosphere in Lexington will lead others to take up their flags and join us in the streets.  Make plans to be in Lexington in January 15th-16th, and make your stand!

Is Black Lives Matter Organizer Shaun King Actually White?

Via Brent


 An investigative blogger has accused Shaun King, a key figure in the Black Lives Matter movement, of misleading media icon Oprah Winfrey by pretending to be biracial in order to qualify for an “Oprah scholarship” to historically black Morehouse College. The blogger says King is white and has been lying about his ethnicity for years.

King is a high-profile campaigner against “police brutality” and “justice correspondent” for the liberal Daily Kos website who told Rebel magazine in 2012 that he was biracial, with the magazine reporting that he is the “son of a Caucasian mother and an African-American father.” He has also described himself as “mixed with a black family” on Twitter.

King has been lionised by the press, praised as hero of civil rights and social activism. He has written extensively about a childhood in which he was terrorised by “decades old racial tensions.” He claims to have been “the focus of constant abuse of the resident rednecks of my school.”

Yet, in recent weeks, rumours have been circulating about his ethnicity. A 1995 police incident report lists Shaun King’s ethnicity as white. And blogger Vicki Pate, who has been assembling forensic accounts of Shaun King’s background and family tree on her blog, “Re-NewsIt!,” has published her findings.

A gemmy, lustrous, hard to find Emerald crystal from the Rist Mine of North Carolina. The upper portion of the crystal is quite gemmy, with the lower portion being translucent to gemmy. The termination is mirror-like and glassy. The crystal contains embedded blades of Muscovite under one face and not far from the termination, which is not unusual for this locality and helps to prove it is from here, as well. A classic and excellent older North Carolina emerald! Weighs 19 grams (95 carats)

The Snowden Effect

Since Snowden fled the US in May of 2013, the US has experienced an increasingly brazen series of massive cyber attacks by criminal groups and nation-states.  These include (there are many more not listed):
  • Target.
  • Sony.
  • The Internal Revenue Service.
  • The Office of Personnel Management
  • The Joint Chiefs of Staff
The reason for this is simple.  The US has lost its ability to deter cyber attacks.
