Fascinating: 50,000-Year-Old Needle Found in Siberian Cave AND It Was Not Made by Homo Sapiens

50,000-Year-Old Needle Found in Siberian Cave AND It Was Not Made by Homo Sapiens

A sensational discovery in Denisova Cave is at least 50,000-years-old BUT it wasn't made by Homo sapiens. The 7-centimeter (2 3/4 inch) needle was made and used by our long extinct Denisovan ancestors, a recently-discovered hominin species or subspecies.

Scientists found the sewing implement - complete with a hole for thread - during the annual summer archeological dig at an Altai Mountains cave widely believed to hold the secrets of man's origins. It appears to be still useable after 50,000 years.

Professor Mikhail Shunkov, head of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography in Novosibirsk, said: 'It is the most unique find of this season, which can even be called sensational.

Department of Homeland “Security” Looking to Run November Election?

Via comment by Anonymous on Why Are Voters So Angry?

As far as I am concerned, the DHS is every bit as corrupt as the FBI – particularly under the “leadership” of Jeh Johnson who, as we all know, is an appointee of the Kenyan comrade Dear Ruler.
Why not just go ahead and put George Soros in charge of running the election – if he is not already pulling the strings off stage. Somehow I think the result would be the same.
This idea smells, and I am holding out little hope that the worthless congressional RINOs will do anything meaningful to stop it.
The election is still two months away, as such, there is still ample time to bring in independent people to oversee the process.
Should that not happen then we will know the “fix” really is in.

Experimenting with Government Social Programs


Former Alabama Governor George Wallace recalled: “My father used to tell me that poverty and illiteracy in the South resulted from the way in which we were treated after the war when they burned the schools down, burned the railroads, just desecrated the South. We are just now overcoming the effects of that tyranny and of the iniquitous Thaddeus Stevens [the Radical Republican leader in Congress], who wanted nothing but vengeance.” Wallace felt himself as one of the South’s “rural proletariat,” and committed himself to “rid the region of what he considered a Northern-imposed inferiority.”
Bernhard Thuersam, www.Circa1865.com   The Great American Political divide

Experimenting with Government Social Programs

“Most Southerners of the [postwar] – and their progeny, including George Wallace – viewed the period of military occupation as cruelly harsh . . . [but] for Southerners, “the unforgiveable reality was not that military rule was unbearably strict or unreasonably long but that it had been imposed at all; what mattered was that the bayonets had glittered among a people who had complied, whatever their reluctance and misgivings, with the Lincoln program for Reconstruction, only to find that the rules had changed as the political winds shifted.

Military rule (but not military occupation) ended in most States in 1868. By then, however, the federal Reconstruction Acts had placed the South’s political structure firmly under the control of [Republican] Radicals who, in practice if not in law, hand-picked governors, legislators, judges, tax collectors, and postmasters.

Many of the jobs were lucrative political plums that lent themselves to graft and payoffs. Legislators were bribed to sell railroad holdings to speculators for next to nothing. An Alabama editor of the time complained that “inside the State capitol and outside of it, bribes were offered and accepted at noonday and without hesitation or shame,” which helped “to drive capital from the State, paralyze industry, demoralize labor, and force the [best] citizens to flee Alabama as a pestilence, seeking relief and repose in the wilds of the distant West.”

Bribes and frauds notwithstanding, Reconstructions greatest dollar cost to the South came from enormous (and frequently wasteful) legislative spending on new programs fostered by the novel and, for the time, somewhat extraordinary notion that social responsibility was a function of the government.

These programs involved not only the establishment of free public school systems for white and black children but also the construction of insane asylums, hospitals, roads, and bridges. Despite extravagances and often misused funds, America’s first integrated governments – [Southern] legislatures comprising blacks, carpetbaggers and scalawags – were experimenting with social programs that State governments in the North had never before financed.

But these largely noble experiments were undertaken at the expense – financially and psychologically – of Southern white landowners, who saw the American republic’s traditional rights and values being overturned by what seemed to them a motley collection of blacks, Northern usurpers and Southern traitors.

In formal as in common speech . . . “the United States are” became “the United States is.” But to Southerners, the end of the war – the War Between the States, as most Southerners would refer to it for at least the next 125 years – meant encroaching federalism and government involvement in theretofore private sectors.

Thenceforth, at least well into the heyday of George Wallace, Alabamians would distrust and often detest the federal government, or at best, view it with deep misgivings.

In Barbour County, the defeated whites told their children and grandchildren horror stories of Reconstruction that would burn into their memories: black constables “paraded the streets,” administering “powers of sovereignty” over whites; federal troops carried off or killed farm animals, burned cotton, and plundered stores and homes; once-wealthy families were reduced to penury; local leaders were arrested on trumped-up charges; most whites were prohibited from voting in local and State elections while blacks, induced by threats, money or liquor, were permitted to vote two or three times each for candidates sympathetic to the Radicals.”

In response to the Quote of the Decade at WRSA, freedomistas (a term I picked up from WRSA) are notoriously independent, private and self-sufficient, all things that work against "outreach." But, let me be as blunt as "local, local, local": at some point those who survived and even put up some sort of resistance and right now, we don't even know against whom we might be resisting, will have to coalesce.  Wars are not won on the battlefield, they are won at the treaty table. One does not get a seat at the treaty table unless they have made such a nuisance of themselves that they are requested to sit at the treaty table.  No group of individuals, 20-30, will be asked to sit and have leverage to rise up from the table and continue the shenanigans.

It has been no secret that Russia is building up its forces in the Arctic region as the Kremlin covets and wants to protect future access to the natural resources in the region.

Russia is also actively preparing to militarize its eastern coastline with large numbers of troops to be garrisoned from near the U.S. border in Alaska to the Kuril Islands in the south, currently disputed with Japan. The new forces scheduled to arrive in 2018 will be as close as 85km to the US border.

Speaking at a Defense Ministry meeting on Tuesday, Sergei Shoigu confirmed that “there are plans to form a coastal defense division in 2018 on the Chukotka operational direction.”
The minister added that this decision was actually made in July 2015, and is part of a plan to establish a unified system of coastal defense stretching from the Arctic in the north to the Primorye Territory in the south.

A TEEN who vanished in South Carolina was repeatedly gang raped for several days then shot dead and fed to alligators, it’s been revealed.

The shocking new details about the mysterious 2009 disappearance Brittanee Drexel came largely from a  new “jailhouse confession”.

The inmate who made the bombshell claims, Taquan Brown, is serving a 25-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter in a different case.

Brown told authorities he was present during the final agonising moments of the 17-year-old’s life, FBI Agent Gerrick Munoz testified.

FBI raids American Muslim's, “home-grown violent extremist”:) home, finds 'arsenal'

Via Billy

Detroiter Sebastian Gregerson, aka Abdurrahman Bin Mikaayl

An American Muslim convert allegedly bought illegal grenades from an undercover FBI agent and was stockpiling ammunition in an underground container, according to federal court records unsealed Monday in Detroit.

Interviews found in court records portray Sebastian Gregerson, aka Abdurrahman Bin Mikaayl, as a “homegrown violent extremist” who amassed an arsenal to carry out an attack while cheering mass killings in Paris and Orlando, the Detroit News reported.

Both the FBI and the Detroit newspaper parroted the language of the Obama administration, referring repeatedly to Gregerson as a “home-grown violent extremist” who seemingly just randomly fell into a state of allegiance to the Islamic State, also called ISIS.

Near the end of the Detroit News article the newspaper finally gets around to telling its readers that Gregerson, 29, converted to Islam after high school and worked as an employee of the Minneapolis-based Target store chain.

Why Are Voters So Angry?

Via David

 They want self-government back.

Haunting this year’s presidential contest is the sense that the U.S. government no longer belongs to the people and no longer represents them. And this uneasy feeling is not misplaced. It reflects the real state of affairs.

We have lost the government we learned about in civics class, with its democratic election of representatives to do the voters’ will in framing laws, which the president vows to execute faithfully, unless the Supreme Court rules them unconstitutional. That small government of limited powers that the Founders designed, hedged with checks and balances, hasn’t operated for a century. All its parts still have their old names and appear to be carrying out their old functions. But in fact, a new kind of government has grown up inside the old structure, like those parasites hatched in another organism that grow by eating up their host from within, until the adult creature bursts out of the host’s carcass.

This transformation is not an evolution but a usurpation.

Alinsky's daughter: Here's the truth about Hillary the media won't tell you

Via David
David Brock, in his 1996 biography, "The Seduction of Hillary Rodham," called Hillary "Alinsky's daughter." That is an apt label. Where Alinsky tactics are used now on both sides to confuse and agitate, Hillary is poised to become the supreme leader with all the power and tools of our monstrous government at her fingertips.
Saul’s daughter has it all figured out.

Hillary Clinton Begs Big Money Donors for Advice on Debating Donald Trump

Via Billy

 Should be in a nursing home. :)
“I want any of your thoughts or ideas about how I should debate Donald Trump, just to name one thing. 71 days left in the campaign and I am not taking anything, anyone or any place for granted. This is the most unpredictable electoral season that I certainly can remember and I am running against someone who will say or do anything.
“And who knows what that might be. We have three debates. The first one is in September…I do not know which Donald Trump will show up.”
“Maybe he will try to be presidential and try to convey a gravity that he hasn’t done before or he will come in and try to insult and try to score some points.”
“Somebody said to be, remember, there will be about 100 million people watching and 60 million will be paying attention to the campaign for the first time. So don;t assume they have followed anything. They may vaguely have some information about Trump said this or Trump said that or whatever. But there will be a lot of new impressions made that night.”

30,000+ illegals from countries of “terrorist concern” crossed SW border into U.S. in 2015

Source: Military Intel Confirms JW Reporting: Muslim Terrorists Entering U.S. Via Mexico – Judicial Watch
Corroborating what Judicial Watch uncovered years ago, a U.S. military intelligence report discloses that Muslim terrorists are being smuggled into the country through Mexico. The government calls them Special Interest Aliens (SIA) and Latin American smuggling networks are helping them cross the border, according to information obtained from a U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) Intelligence dispatch.

Located in Miami, Florida SOUTHCOM is one of nine unified combat commands in the Department of Defense (DOD). It’s responsible for providing contingency planning operations and security cooperation in Central and South America as well as the Caribbean. The internal assessment on SIA smuggling has not been made public, but a conservative Washington D.C. online newspaper obtained key points from the command’s J-2 intelligence directorate. A SOUTHCOM Army colonel told the paper that in 2015 more than 30,000 migrants who entered the U.S. through the southwestern border were from countries of “terrorist concern.”

Syria: Their War, Not Ours

 Syria: Their War, Not Ours

The debacle that is U.S. Syria policy is today on naked display.

NATO ally Turkey and U.S.-backed Arab rebels this weekend attacked our most effective allies against ISIS, the Syrian Kurds.

Earlier in August, U.S. planes threatened to shoot down Syrian planes over Hasakeh, and our Iraq-Syria war commander, Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, issued a warning to Syria and Russia against any further air strikes around the city.

Who authorized Gen. Townsend to threaten to shoot down Syrian or Russian planes — in Syria?

When did Congress authorize an American war in Syria? Is the Constitution now inoperative?

Crime Knockout Attack Caught on VIDEO: Man Dies After ONE Sucker Punch

Via Billy

knockout attack sucker punch
In what police are calling a completely “random” knockout attack, a man was sucker punched once in the head by a young black male, causing the victim to stumble to his death.
The knockout attack happened in Philadelphia. Surveillance footage shows three black males between the ages of about 16 to 20 standing in front of a man and staring at him. One of the suspects approached the victim – identified as 30-year-old Mardoqueo Sincal Jochola – and punched him in the head. As Jochola fell to the ground, dead, the three assailants fled the scene.

According to Lt. Philip Riehl of the Philadelphia Police Department, “He all of a sudden, without any notice throws a punch, and it’s clear the victim never saw it coming.”

Confederate Memorial Hall and Jack Daniels


In 1935 the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) constructed Confederate Memorial Hall as a residence for girls at Nashville’s Peabody College. Originally residents who were descendants of Confederate veterans and agreed to become teachers were granted free room and board. The school and dormitory were acquired by Vanderbilt University in 1979. Earlier this month university chancellor, Nicholas Zeppos, announced that the name “Confederate” will be sandblasted off of the building.

Ironically, it is unlikely that Zeppos would be paid anything close to his $2.2 million salary except for the Confederate sympathies of Cornelius’s second wife, Frank Crawford Vanderbilt, and the contributions of countless Confederate descendants over the years. It is equally unlikely that any of the school’s prominent graduates—including Board of Trust members who appointed Zeppos—would have even attended the university.

Through the husband of one of her cousins, the Mobile, Alabama native persuaded the Commodore to donate $1 million to fund the university in 1873. Among the few who attended their wedding was a former Attorney General of the Confederacy and a former Confederate lieutenant general. Six years earlier the Commodore was among several prominent Northerners who posted bail for the prison release of former Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

Upon granting his gift Cornelius explained that it was intended to “contribute to strengthening the ties which should exist between all sections of our common country.”


Fox sports announcer, Clay Travis, is one Vandy graduate who is objecting to the sandblasting. Consequently, the Jack Daniels distillery is revoking a modest advertising contract with him. Jack Daniels is owned by Brown-Forman whose Board Chairman is Garvin Brown, IV and is located at 850 Dixie Highway, Louisville, Kentucky 40210
