A federal judge ordered the Department of State Wednesday to produce for The Daily Caller News Foundation the security training records of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin within two weeks, or face direct deposition of multiple government officials.

“I’m sure you can appreciate Mr. Lee, there is a certain time sensitivity on this issue,” U.S. District Court Judge Richard J. Leon told Department of Justice Attorney Jason Lee, representing the State Department. “We’re looking down the barrel of a presidential election from now in two months.”

Nitrocellulose - Update August 31, 2016

Via comment by JJ on ATF Reclassifies Wetted Nitrocellulose as Explosiv...


 ATF’s June 2016 Explosives Industry Newsletter included a
brief discussion of Nitrocellulose, and attempted to clarify the circumstances under which wetted Nitrocellulose is considered a high explosive under 27 CFR, Part 555. 

As with all explosives, ATF’s focus is on the potential public safety risks associated with materials that can be misused or diverted to unlawful purposes. Subsequent contact from industry members who import, transport, store or employ wetted Nitrocellulose in the production of ammunition, however, has brought to our attention issues that were not fully addressed in the Newsletter and require further consultation and consideration with the industry. 
Accordingly, ATF has and will conduct further industry outreach concerning wetted Nitrocellulose. In the interim, previously authorized industry practices concerning wetted Nitrocellulose will not be affected.

Soros Memos Paint Picture of a Power-Hungry ‘God’

Via Billy

George Soros should scare the hell out of anybody with a lick of sense.

Born a Hungarian Jew, his first job was working for the Nazis in World War II, helping to confiscate the property of Jews who were being rounded up, a job he not only never expressed any regret for, but that he described as one of the finest times of his life.

He has described himself, and the power he has as a billionaire, as being like a mad god.

“Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad,” Soros said in an interview on British television.

And he certainly has considerable power to back up his fantasies, including the power to make the video clip of his famous 60 Minutes interview, or leaked documents from his Open Society Foundations, virtually disappear from the Internet.

Among the documents that were downloaded by various news outlets before they vanished, there are numerous eye-openers that clarify exactly how deep Soros’ various schemes go, and paint a picture of a man who can manipulate markets, order around governments and arrange coups wherever he likes.

Soros comes about as close to a comic book supervillain as you can get in real life. Honestly, he could give Lex Luthor or Doctor Doom a run for their money.

Among the revelations found so far in the Soros documents:

What Voters and Taxpayers Should Know about Amnesty

Via Mike


Toward the end of President Ronald Reagan’s eight years in office ending in early 1989, his Attorney General, Ed Meese, asked him what he considered his biggest regret. According to Meese, Reagan told him that it was signing the 1986 Amnesty. Reagan had been uncomfortable with the concept of amnesty and reluctant to sign the bill, but he was persuaded by “moderate” Republicans that the numbers would not be significant, and compromise was necessary to get the Democrats to vote for badly needed enforcement provisions of the bill.

Reagan was persuaded that the amnesty would apply to no more than a million illegal immigrants in the country. The actual number was approximately 2.7 million thanks to weak enforcement of the provisions of the amnesty and rampant fraud—at least 25 percent. Moreover, the number of illegal immigrants in the country had obviously been underestimated.

In addition, the Democrat and liberal Republican promises to implement the enforcement measures of the 1986 bill were ignored, and illegal immigrants continued to pour into the country.

By 1990, Congress realized that illegal immigration was even more out of control and created the Jordan Commission to study immigration issues and make recommendations to Congress. The Jordan Commission report and recommendations were released in 1995 and presented to Congress in 1997.

Trump to meet in Mexico with the country’s president

Via Billy

Donald Trump will travel to Mexico City on Wednesday for a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, just hours before he delivers a high-stakes speech in Arizona to clarify his views on immigration policy.

Peña Nieto last Friday invited both Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to visit Mexico, his office said in a statement provided to The Washington Post on Tuesday night.

Trump, sensing an opportunity, decided over the weekend to accept the invitation and push for a visit this week, according to the people in the United States and Mexico familiar with the discussions.

Late Tuesday, Trump and the Mexican president confirmed on Twitter that they will meet Wednesday.

Homeland Security To Save Us From 'Rigged Elections'?

Via Iver

Is There Silent Trump Support That Pollsters Are Missing?

Some have suggested that Donald Trump has hidden support among voters who are unwilling to say publicly where they stand because they’re fearful of criticism. We won’t know for sure until Election Day, but Republicans are clearly more reluctant than Democrats this year to say how they are going to vote.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 17% of Likely Republican Voters are less likely this year to let others know how they intend to vote compared to previous presidential campaigns. Just 10% of Likely Democratic Voters say they are less likely to tell.

Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 25% say they are less likely this year to say publicly which presidential candidate they will vote. Unaffiliateds have leaned in Trump’s direction in recent weeks in our White House Watch survey but also have been the biggest supporters of Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Clinton and Trump have been running nearly even in our surveys for weeks.  When either of them takes a lead, it’s generally been within our +/- 3 percentage point margin of error.

ATF Reclassifies Wetted Nitrocellulose as Explosive Materials Under Federal Laws

 Washington, DC

In an Explosives Industry Newsletter issued in June 2016, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (“ATF”) reclassified wetted nitrocellulose [also known as flash paper, flash cotton, guncotton, and flash string] containing greater than 12.6 percent nitrogen as a high explosive under the federal explosives laws.

As explained below, this is a dramatic and sudden change in agency policy with a significant impact on the ammunition industry. The new policy was announced in a newsletter without any opportunity for industry input.

The Russia-Israel romance

Via Billy

Valdimir, a Muscovite taxi driver, is astonished that Israel, a tiny little country "that's all desert and sand" exports its fruit and vegetables all over the world -- including to Russia, where Israeli produce has become a common sight in Moscow, and even to the country's periphery. 

But it doesn't end with carrots and potatoes. In general, Russia holds a positive view of Israel as an exciting, developed country. It is beguiling to many Russians as a tourist destination, and if anything stands in the way of increased Russian tourism, it is the fact that Israel is more expensive than other vacation locales. 

This has proved beyond a doubt that tourism to Israel can help create a positive image for the country. The many Russians who have visited Israel since the visa requirement was canceled have changed the way Israel is viewed by the Russian public. Almost anyone you meet in Moscow has a friend, relative, or acquaintance who recently visited the Holy Land and came back with tales of its wonders.

These positive stories add up to create more and more circles of support for Israel.

A Candidate's Death Could Delay or Eliminate the Presidential Election

Via comment by Badger on Department of Homeland “Security” Looking to Run N...

The presidential election could be delayed or scrapped altogether if conspiracy theories become predictive and a candidate dies or drops out before Nov. 8. The perhaps equally startling alternative, if there's enough time: Small groups of people hand-picking a replacement pursuant to obscure party rules.

The scenarios have been seriously considered by few outside of the legal community and likely are too morbid for polite discussion in politically mixed company. But prominent law professors have pondered the effects and possible ways to address a late-date vacancy.

"There's nothing in the Constitution which requires a popular election for the electors serving in the Electoral College," says John Nagle, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame, meaning the body that officially elects presidents could convene without the general public voting.

"It's up to each state legislature to decide how they want to choose the state's electors," Nagle says. "It may be a situation in which the fact that we have an Electoral College, rather than direct voting for presidential candidates, may prove to be helpful."

Obama’s VA Cemetery Confederate Flag Ban Intended to Further Divide and Inflame

Via Iver

Under “progressive” rules for what is now deemed historically acceptable, it’s fair to ask how much longer this lithograph will be housed in the Library of Congress before it’s burned.

“The Veterans Affairs Department quietly moved this month to ban flying of Confederate flags from fixed flagpoles at the cemeteries it runs, striking yet another blow against the controversial emblem,” The Washington Times reports. “Congress had debated and rejected that change, but the Obama administration decided to move forward anyway, saying it was unilaterally imposing the restrictions.”

So much for separation of powers. So much for checks and balances. And the gutless Congress, terrified of being called “racist,” lets that larger principle slide, no matter the damage an imperial presidency does to freedom.  Besides, the “Republican”-controlled House already caved before that provision was ultimately dropped from a VA funding bill.

What this latest move does is disallows Confederate flags to be flown on Memorial Day and Confederate Memorial Day.  Rules for placing small flags on individual graves have not been rewritten – yet.

Why is the administration bringing this up now? The same reason it was brought up earlier: For cynical political gain. That and to paint anyone opposing “progressive” subversion as a racist.

Hacker Guccifer 2.0 released more documents obtained from former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s computer.

One document from Pelosi’s computer detailed how candidates and staffers were to respond to the Benghazi terrorist attack.

The authors of the memo admit the Benghazi consulate and CIA annex attacks on September 11,2012 were a pre-planned terrorist attack and NOT a spontaneous assault as a result of an anti-Islam video.

Susan Rice made the rounds after the deadly terrorist attacks and lied to the American public about a video being behind the deadly assault on our consulate.

The authors of the leaked memo admit that Ambassador Susan Rice lied about the attacks days after 9-11 and before the presidential election.

The memo also includes this bomb: State reduced security at the facility, “a move that was approved at a ‘high level.’”

Filmlog: Three for the Resistance

confederate flag wwii

World War II has provided a vast amount of material for cinema in Europe, America, and Japan.

Some if this is superb. Much of it is hokey entertainment and propaganda. We perhaps did not realise how hokey until the horrors of D-Day were portrayed in Saving Private Ryan. That useful dose of realism deserves to be set off against Stephen Spielberg’s many sins against culture.

Belonging to a conquered and occupied people, I am interested in the fate of small nations in that period of history and their resistance to totalitarian invaders. Here are three good films in that line, perhaps somewhat known, but not as well known as they deserve. And that relate to aspects of the World War II era not very familiar to Americans.

Soldier of Orange (Soldaat van Oranje, 1977) portrays the Dutch resistance and government-in-exile. The motives and characters of the leaders, their relations with their British hosts, and their underground operations in the homeland are shown with apparent authenticity. Rutger Hauer is the lead—this in the days before he moved to Hollywood and devoted himself to cheap action flicks.

The Last Lieutenant (1993) is a Norwegian gem. Espen Skjonberg is a merchant marine captain who has just retired in anticipation of spending golden years with his wife. Then the Nazi invaders arrive.

He is impelled to do what he can in defense of his small, beleaguered, and betrayed nation. Critics have said that the picture of historical events is not realistic, though the story is a quite plausible portrayal of people in an impossible situation. The confusion, futility and heroism of the resistance appear in telling fashion. More to the point, The Last Lieutenant is a celebration of individual courage that reminds one of the Scandinavian sagas, although without the boasting. (The film bears no relationship to a book about Iwo Jima with the same title.).

Having paid attention to the barbarous Germans, we should turn attention to the barbarous Russians. The Winter War (Talvisota, 1990) relates the experience of some Finnish reservists called up for the bitter defense of their country from the invading Communist hordes in the winter of 1939-1940. A tale of ordinary men behaving extraordinarily. And of course, an antidote to the pro-Communist flavour of much of Hollywood’s production.

Perhaps, if there is interest, then more can be said in the future about examples of this kind of film. These are portrayals of free men fighting against tyranny under hopeless odds. Except for Revelation and Resurrection, what nobler tale is there in human history? These are the kinds of stories that once stirred the hearts of Americans—before we became ourselves the imperial bullies.

New Flags Installed at Memorial Battle Flag Sites in Danville, Virginia

Via Susan

At our last flag raising in Danville, Virginia, we asked for help from the attendees to collect the funds needed to pay for the 30' x 50' flag that was raised on Hwy 29 that day. We were absolutely thrilled when the Danville community ended up giving more than twice the needed amount, so that we not only covered the cost of the world's largest Confederate Battle Flag, but we were also able to order new flags for several of the other 13 Danville flag sites.

Today, our friends at Sky High Poles have been busy changing out flags, including this beautiful new Army of Tennessee Battle Flag now flying at the very first Danville Memorial Battle Flag Site, on 58 at the main bridge into town.

Maintaining these sites is a challenge, and we could not do it without the outpouring of community help and support that we have received, especially in Danville.  MANY THANKS to all of our supporters who have contributed to help raise and maintain these flags, and to the men who serve as guardians of the Danville, and across the Commonwealth!
