Guccifer 2.0 Releases CLINTON FOUNDATION DOCS! – Dems Funneled TARP Funds to their PACs with more to come!

Via Billy


Many of you have been waiting for this, some even asked me to do it.

So, this is the moment. I hacked the Clinton Foundation server and downloaded hundreds of thousands of docs and donors’ databases.

Hillary Clinton and her staff don’t even bother about the information security. It was just a matter of time to gain access to the Clinton Foundation server.

Here’s the contents of one of the folders that I got from there.

An American Rwanda

Immaculee Ilibagiza spent 91 days hiding in a bathroom to escape genocide in Rwanda. Today she became an American Citizen.

We are living on the edge of social destruction, a long-planned move of the leftists/Marxists, aided most deftly by the Obama Administration. The arrangements are unmistakable to the critical eye: the silence of the President during periods of race inspired riots as if to lend credibility to the cause; the open statements of the Attorney General supporting the prime actors in the riots; the invitation to the White House of those same actors.

The cause, by the way, is undefined and the actions taken irrational. Theoretically, the cause is the death of a black person, any black person, especially criminals, at the hands of police. So, is this meant to communicate to the rest of the nation that police should not shoot armed criminals based on race?  If they should not shoot criminals, what need do they have of weapons? Are those weapons needed just for white people, Latinos, Asians and Native Americans?

Obama DOJ drops charges against alleged broker of Libyan weapons, because he had threatened to expose Hillary Clinton’s talks about arming anti-Qadhafi rebels.

“The U.S. government spent millions of dollars, went all over the world to bankrupt him, and destroyed his life — all to protect Hillary Clinton’s crimes,” The Obama administration is moving to dismiss charges against an arms dealer it had accused of selling weapons that were destined for Libyan rebels.

Lawyers for the Justice Department on Monday filed a motion in federal court in Phoenix to drop the case against the arms dealer, an American named Marc Turi, whose lawyers also signed the motion on Hillary Clinton’s private emails as Secretary of State, and to expose reported Central Intelligence Agency attempts to arm rebels fighting Libyan leader Moammar Qadhafi.


F.A.T.S – FireArms Training Simulator

Comment by avordvet on Why Do Police Sometimes Shoot Unarmed People?

 FireArms Training Simulator
And that would be the reason LE uses the FATS http://www.ammoland.com/2011/07/fats-firearms-training-simulator/

Problem is, they maybe use it a handful of times at the academy and that's it. Some departments have their own and are able to do an annual qualification, but those are few and far between. I've used the simulator a number of times with Mil/LE, and it is a fantastic training aid, bringing up many scenarios that are not run into on a daily basis.

I've also drilled a few bad guys before they brought a weapon into a firing position just by watching and analyzing their behavior... then again I popped a few that were pulling out a cell phone and/or wallet. Thats what makes the system so good, as all engagements can be analyzed and learned from.

Biggest problem is the cost of the FATS, most departments can't afford 'em as a stand alone training aid.


I recently had the opportunity to try out the F.A.T.S training system after taking a level two Urban Pistol class at the Police Academy range.

The class was fantastic but after it was over, I peeked in the room where the F.A.T.S training sessions were being conducted.

F.A.T.S stands for FireArms Training Simulator.

It is an entirely interactive system that uses a computer program, a large screen and very realistic firearms that are loaded with computer chips instead of ammunition. It looks somewhat like a big video game, but it is definitely not a game.

Suppressing Conservative Votes in Texas



Union League

The carpetbagger class was not the only alien fixture of postwar Texas. Edmund J. Davis was a former district judge in Texas who raised a regiment of Texas cavalry for the enemy and led the postwar “radical faction” of blacks and Texas scalawags. Davis was widely despised and one who, in the words of one loyal Texan, “led armies to sack and pillage their own State.”  The North’s Union League organized freedmen into a solid political bloc to support Republican candidates for office; the Ku Klux Klan was organized to oppose the Union League.
Bernhard Thuersam, www.Circa1865.com   The Great American Political Divide

Suppressing Conservative Votes in Texas

“Passed over [President Andrew] Johnson’s veto on March 2, 1867, the First Reconstruction Act divided the former Confederate States, except [Johnson’s home State of] Tennessee, into five military districts and declared the existing civil governments in these States to be only provisional. Congress combined Texas with Louisiana into the Fifth Military District under the command of General Philip H. Sheridan.

The advent of Congressional Reconstruction shocked and angered Texas conservatives. Disregarding the four years of Civil War just ended, the Conservatives, or Democrats, now charged the northern Republicans with unleashing with “fanatical malignity” a “stupendous revolutionary scheme.” [To add fuel to the fire] Freedmen’s Bureau agents throughout the State continued to chronicle the many “sad complaints” of the freedmen and the routine “fearful state of things” in their respective districts.

[Texas freedmen and] often influential, newly arrived northerners (mostly former or current United States soldiers or officers whom Conservatives called “carpetbaggers”) held mass meetings of blacks and formed secret local Union Leagues for mobilizing the black Republican electorate.

Republican fortunes depended squarely on the leadership of the most stouthearted of the freedmen. Republican hopes also hinged on excluding from the voting lists every unqualified ex-Confederate. [Republicans leaders] denied that problems had arisen in some counties in finding competent registrars who could take the required “ironclad oath” that they had never voluntarily supported the Confederacy. (The vast majority of Texas white men in 1867 would not have been able to take this oath.)

[By] the end of January 1868, local boards throughout the State had registered about 89 percent of the black adult males, or 49,550 freedmen. A common charge made by Conservatives . . . was that blacks had been “registered with little regard for age.”

[Republican mobilization] of the freedmen had been a success. Texas blacks flocked to the polls and voted in large enough numbers to validate the holding of the constitutional convention. On the days of the election when blacks arrived en masse to vote, many county seats had the look of what one observer called an “African settlement.”

In Travis County, a group of Webberville blacks, dramatically led by their leader holding a sword and the national flag, came to the polls armed and on horseback. Upon their arrival, the local postmaster handed their leaders “Radical” ballots stamped on the back with “the United States Post Office stamp” so that the illiterate among their followers would be able to identify them as genuine Republican tickets.

White registrants avoided the polls in droves: over two-thirds i=of them sat out the referendum balloting. The turnout showed that most Texas whites did not consider that they had a genuine voice in the election or that they simply did not care.

Why Do Police Sometimes Shoot Unarmed People?

Via John

YouTuber “possumpopper89” has crafted a 6-minute video that does a fairly good job of explaining why law enforcement officers (and some “regular Joe” citizens with defensive firearms training) sometimes shoot unarmed people.

People who lack this kind of training (which is probably close to 95% of the general population) hold the mistaken belief that officers wait until they see and identify a weapon in a suspect’s hand before deciding to open fire.

That is simply not the case much of the time. In many instances, it isn’t possible to visually identify a weapon due to lighting conditions or attempts by dangerous criminals to conceal a weapon even as they bring them into play.

The simply fact of the matter is that you can never react as fast as the other person acts. It requires you to observe the other person’s actions, orient (analyze and synthesize the incoming data through the lens past experiences, training, culture, and genetic filters), decide on a response, and then act to carry out that decision.

Yahoo Admits It Secretly Hacked All User Accounts For US Intelligence

Just days after admitting that some 500 millions of its email accounts were hacked (allegedly Russians, of course), the Yahoo confessional continues as Reuters reports, somewhat stunningly that, Yahoo secretly built software to search all of its customers' incoming emails for US intel officials. Yahoo's reaction to this: we are "a law abiding company."

Following claims of state-sponsored attacks of its customers' email accounts, Reuters reports, Yahoo also hacked its own customers' accounts...

Aborting the Trump Revolution

 Aborting the Trump Revolution

In taking that $915 million loss in 1995, and carrying it forward to shelter future income, Donald Trump did nothing wrong. By both his family and his business, he did everything right.
In a famous 1947 dissent, Judge Learned Hand wrote:

“[T]here is nothing sinister in so arranging one’s affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. … Everybody does so, rich or poor; and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands: taxes are enforced exactions, not voluntary contributions. To demand more in the name of morals is mere cant.”

This writer’s father spent his career as a tax accountant who studied tax codes and utilized every permissible deduction to keep his clients’ tax bills as low as legally possible.

How Pence can pave the way for Trump before Sunday's debate


On Tuesday vice presidential nominees, Governor Mike Pence and Senator Tim Kaine will take the debate stage. Those who tune in are likely to see a more traditional debate: one that is heavy on policy prescriptions, and light on biting quips and interruptions. Perhaps more boring than the top-of-the-ticket debate, it’s still worth watching. While Mr. Trump and Secretary Clinton are preparing for the second debate on Sunday, the vice presidential debate should fill in some of the holes left over from the first presidential debate.

While the first debate was close to a draw, Trump did miss some wide openings to slam Clinton on matters related to her record.

Michael Reagan: Nancy Would Have Voted for Hillary Clinton: (Ronald thought that Confederates had been in the wrong, by the way)

North Carolina Inside Politics

Michael Reagan says the Republican Party is so off the rails in its handling of the 2016 presidential race that not even his late father, President Ronald Reagan, would have lent his support.

In fact, adds the veteran political analyst, even his late mother, Nancy Reagan, would have bailed on the GOP and its candidate Donald Trump, and instead would have supported Hillary Clinton.

Reagan dropped the bombshell in a scathing tweet posted on Sunday, hours after The New York Times revealed that Trump may not have paid federal taxes for as many as 18 years.

Reagan tweeted this morning: “My father would not support this kind of campaign, if this is what the Republican Party wants leave us Reagans out. Nancy would vote for HRC.”

The tweet is one more chink in the armor of the GOP's support of Trump, who was heavily criticized last week for his comments about a former Miss Universe, Bill Clinton's past indiscretions and a suggestion that Hillary Clinton has not been faithful to her husband.

Michael Reagan, one of the nation’s leading conservative commentators, opposed Trump during the primaries, charging the billionaire was not a true Reaganite who supported big government programs while not supporting NATO.

In recent months Reagan had indicated he would support Trump -- before today’s tweet.

Reagan joins a growing list of conservative daily newspapers like the New Hampshire Union Leader, Dallas Morning News, and Arizona Republic – all of which have traditionally endorsed the Republican candidate but this year are backing either Clinton or Libertarian Gary Johnson.


 faulkner 3

Myself, I will stand during the Pledge out of politeness to the as-yet unenlightened.  No repeating the words or hands over the heart.  Like our forebears, I do  not  owe  unquestioning allegiance to a flag or a government and will not swear such.   Like them,  I will swear to “uphold  the Constitution,”  which is what free men  reasonably ought to do. 

Exactly what I do at each monthly SCV meeting.

William Faulkner of Mississippi was the greatest writer produced by the United States in the 20th century.  His craft was fiction, but like any great writer he was a better historian and  philosopher  than  most  who  wear  those  labels .  I  was  reminded  of a nonfiction piece of Faulkner’s recently when the hoopla erupted about some of the pampered and petted gladiators of the commercial sports industry trashing the national anthem.  This article was Faulkner’s sole contribution to Sports Illustrated (January 1955) and was called “An Innocent at Ringside.”

In this essay Faulkner writes about his first viewing of an ice hockey match, which he describes beautifully and inimitably.  Then he reflects on the preoccupation of Americans with sports spectacles,  viewed  while  sitting  in  rain-proofed and often cold-proofed comfort, in comparison with our ancestors’ hunting, fishing, sailing.  He (in the role of Innocent) wondered:

“just  what a professional hockey-match, whose purpose is to make a decent and reasonable profit for  its owners, had to do with our National Anthem.
