» Dear Mr. Security Agent

So in the year 2013, in the land of the free and the home of the brave, we stand with our eyes averted, burning with humiliation, while our spouses or children are groped above and below the waist by blue-gloved government prison guards—only we are in an airport in a free country, and not in a prison!

Or are we? A virtual open-air prison, where government security agents can pat down ordinary citizens at will is the accepted “new normal.” Did that happen often in East Germany, I wonder? In the Soviet Union? Does it happen today in Cuba? Officially sanctioned crotch groping in the name of “security?”


in the name of public safety the government is going to whittle your allowable firearms down step by step, first eliminating semi-automatic rifles, then pistols, and eventually on down to the last bolt-action hunting rifles and shotguns, which may be kept at a government armory, and signed out for an approved day of hunting with a few shells. (Make sure to retrieve your empty brass for the counting.)

Well-meaning, gun-loathing liberals need to understand that they are blindly tossing matches into a dynamite factory with their threats to severely limit and restrict the Second Amendment. They must understand the other point of view in order not to send America careening into a deadly minefield, the existence of which they are, evidently, blissfully unaware.

» Bill Clinton Is Concerned and You Should Be, Too

Today, representatives of countries from around the world are meeting in Brazil to start discussing the Internet’s future. It’s in dispute because the U.S. is preparing to transfer the oversight it has had—oversight that has helped keep the Internet open and free.
“A lot of people…have been trying to take this authority from the U.S. for the sole purpose of cracking down on Internet freedom and limiting it and having governments protect their backsides instead of empowering their people,” former President Clinton said.
For example, Russia and China—which censor the Internet in their own countries—are keen to have the United Nations take over.

» Half a Win on Racial Discrimination

In a perfectly Orwellian dissenting opinion, which she read dramatically from the bench, Justice Sotomayor argued that the decision of the people of Michigan to end racial discrimination is itself an instance of racial discrimination and that the only way to mitigate such racial discrimination is through the mandatory maintenance of racial discrimination.

Justice Sotomayor is here arguing in effect that if a constitutional referendum doesn’t go the NAACP’s way, then its effects are invalid. This is not an exaggeration: Justice Soyomayor argues explicitly that Michigan’s voters would have been within their rights to, for example, lobby university authorities to adopt race-neutral admissions standards but that by adopting a constitutional amendment insisting on race neutrality, thereby transferring the decision from the education bureaucrats to the people themselves and their constitution, they “changed the rules in the middle of the game.”

… the fact that non-white students do relatively poorly under race-neutral admissions standards at our public universities is an indictment mainly of our K–12 education system and of the cultural anarchy that has imposed especially high costs on the children of black and Latino families. It is not an indictment of race-neutral standards. Unable or unwilling to do a better job of preparing black and Latino students for college in the public institutions controlled by its most reliable footsoldiers, the Left insists on anathematizing the very standards under which the incompetence and negligence of our government-run schools, the very model of progressivism, are revealed. If that takes a bit of doublespeak — non-discrimination is discrimination — it wouldn’t be the first time the Left has relied on it.

» It’s Hard Being a Black Conservative

“The Left must destroy black conservatives because it cannot afford to have freethinking, independent-minded black Americans. When the Left wins, our community loses. The result of such blind loyalty is that many black voters have come to resemble Vladimir Lenin’s ‘useful idiots.’ They make up an electorate that is completely taken for granted and no one even bothers to listen.”

It is ironic that the first black President will not only be remembered as our worst, but that his failure will reflect on the entire black community in America even while men like West and other blacks of real achievement exist.

» The Pacific’s Salmon Are Back — Thank Human Ingenuity

Native Americans bringing back the salmon and preserving their way of life, while combating global warming: One would think that environmentalists would be very pleased.

One would be very wrong. Far from receiving applause for their initiative, the Haida and Mr. George have become the target of rage aimed from every corner of the community seeking to use global warming as a pretext for curtailing human freedom.

    “Even the placement of iron particles into the ocean, whether for carbon sequestration or fish replenishment, should not take place, unless it is assessed and found to be legitimate scientific research without commercial motivation.

The key: Without commercial motivation. Those three words encapsulate the entire objective of the greenie agenda. It doesn’t matter what we’re talking about, how much good is done or proposed, how many more polar bears there are, how happy are the penguins, how fat the little fishies, how totally isolated are turtles, how thick the ice … if somebody somewhere made a buck or two during the process then none of it is acceptable. To the greenies no good can be done by capitalists … ever.

Silvia Ribeiro, of the international anti-technology watchdog ETC Group, also voiced her horror at any development that might allow humanity to escape from the need for carbon rationing. “It is now more urgent than ever that governments unequivocally ban such open-air geoengineering experiments,” she said. “They are a dangerous distraction providing governments and industry with an excuse to avoid reducing fossil-fuel emissions.”


Previously, environmentalists objected to human actions that harmed whales. But now, human actions that help whales also evoke horror. Clearly, it’s not about whales at all. It’s about prohibiting human activity, which is seen as intrinsically evil and therefore in need of constraint regardless of its content or intent.

… while the potential of open-sea mariculture has been known for decades, experiments by established agencies that would validate the concept and lead to its commercialization have been blocked at every turn by regulators, who deemed such efforts at oceanic fertilization to be possible violations of U.N. protocols banning marine dumping.

… those demanding restraints on carbon emissions and restrictions on fisheries hate mariculture. They hate it for the same reason those demanding constraints in the name of allegedly limited energy resources hate nuclear power. They hate it because it solves a problem they need unsolved.

» Elites’ Sacrificial Victims

Why do our well-meaning elites so often worry about humanity in the abstract rather than the real effects of their cosmic ideologies on the majority?

… liberal ideology so often proves more important than people. Noble theories about saving humanity offer exemption from worry about the immediate consequences for individual humans. In a personal sense, those who embrace progressive ideas expect to be excused from the ramifications of their schemes.


Thomas Friedman recently wrote of the upside to Vladimir Putin’s possible radical cutoff of natural gas to the former Soviet republics and Eastern Europe. Friedman nearly rejoices that Putin has inadvertently helped the green cause. Supposedly, once Putin’s erstwhile gas buyers grasp that Russia proves an unreliable supplier, they will then be forced to redouble their efforts at wind, solar, and renewable energy. Thus, we will all be better off. “If I’m actually rooting for Putin to go ahead and shut off the gas,” Friedman asks, “does that make me a bad guy?”

I am afraid it does.

Let’s pause for a moment to consider the ramifications of one sentence: “Friedman nearly rejoices that Putin has inadvertently helped the green cause.“. Without Russian gas Europe has little more than two choices, rely on green energy to just barely survive the next deep-freeze winter or die. Bare survival or death … that is the green cause. I think if pressed for an ultimate decision they would prefer that Europe die. Furthermore, I don’t think they dream of human extinction for the sake of the earth either. Earth is just the excuse. They just look forward to human extinction.

In California, it is just this sort of assumption that millions must be sacrificed on the altars of green deities that has resulted in cutoffs of life-providing irrigation water in order to save a bait fish …

» Anti-Semitic Violence, Neo-Nazis and the Anti-Israel Left

… when Frazier Glenn Miller pulled the trigger at a Jewish Community Center and a Jewish retirement community, his inspiration didn’t only come from Mein Kampf. Miller’s story is revealing of how the old anti-Semitism of the Neo-Nazis interacts with the new anti-Semitism of the Anti-Israel left and how wealthy progressives finance a culture of hate that can explode in violence a thousand miles away.

As Stalin allied with Hitler to invade Poland, the Anti-Israel left has aligned with Nazis to fight Israel.

When the culture of hate toward Israel on the left has become almost indistinguishable from Neo-Nazis, and when violent bigots feast on hateful propaganda put out by progressive non-profits, the left must either conduct a moral reckoning and clean its house, or accept that when it comes to Jews, it is on the same page as a murderer who signed the post in which he linked to Max Blumenthal, “Sieg Heil.”

» Islam’s Religious War with Everyone

Religions have a long history of not getting along with one another, but there is only one religion that has never gotten along with any other religion, is engaging in a religious war with every religion that exists, with atheists who have no religion, and even with its own co-religionists.

Is all this violence someone else’s fault? Or is it Islam’s fault?


Israel has conveniently become the focus and explanation for Muslim hostility toward Jews, but that fails to explain over a thousand years of Muslim hatred and persecution … long before Herzl or the IDF.

Why did Muslims persecute and kill Jews long before Zionism was even a word? For the same reason that they killed Christians.

The real reason why a Muslim carries out a terrorist attack in New York or Boston is the same reason why a church gets burned in Egypt or bombed in Syria. It’s the same reason why teenage British girls get raped and why the Christian population of the Middle East has shrunk from a quarter to a tenth.

Everything else is just Muslim war propaganda that only fools and appeasers take at face value.

» Syrian Jihadis ‘Take Aim’ at Christian Toddler




… jihadi social media networks posted the above picture of a child sitting on the ground while surrounded by armed men pointing their rifles at him. The caption appearing with the picture, purportedly posted by a supporter of the Free Syrian Army, is “Our youngest hostage from among the hostile sects of Kessab.”

… those wondering what the jihadis have to gain from taking such a picture and making it public would do well to remember that these are the same “rebels” who decapitate people and wave their severed and bloodied heads in front of cameras while smiling; these are the same “freedom fighters” who literally eat their victims on camera.

Surely “teasing” an infidel toddler – a subhuman – with their rifles and sharing it with their sadistic comrades via the Internet for a “laugh” should not be too surprising?

» Wind Industry Produces Little Energy, Lots Of Hot Air

… the wind industry is to energy production what Amtrak is to intercity transportation — a perpetual tax-dollar burning machine.
The wind industry has admitted that without the taxpayer handouts, its form of energy can’t compete. In other words, in a free market system for energy, wind is, well, winded.
One reason for the dismal state of affairs for wind is the shale oil and gas revolution. In six years the price of natural gas in the U.S. has plummeted to $4 a gallon from $12. None of the brilliant central planners in Washington ever saw that coming.
The fatal conceit of government planners is to believe they can see the future better than private entrepreneurs and investors.


The entire rationale for renewable energy subsidies was to reduce carbon emissions, but natural gas is achieving that at a fraction of the cost. The U.S. has reduced its carbon emissions in recent years primarily as a result of the shift toward natural gas for electric power.
It’s not a stretch to believe the real motivation behind the big push for another round of “temporary” wind subsidies is to line the pockets of major Democratic campaign donors who have bet the farm on renewable energy.

» FROM GREATNESS TO WHITENESS

In the past, Americans overwhelmingly saw pictures of greatness. Increasingly only conservatives see pictures of greatness. More and more Americans — that includes the entire left and many universities attendees who were indoctrinated by left-wing professors — now see rich, white, self-interested males.

The left-wing trinity of race, gender and class has prevailed. The new dividing lines are no longer good and bad or excellent and mediocre, but white and non-white, male and female, and rich and poor. Instead of seeing great human beings in those paintings of the Founders, Americans have been taught to see rich, white, (meaning — by definition — selfish, bigoted, racist, sexist) males.

In colleges throughout America, students are taught to have disdain for the white race. I know this sounds incredible, or at least exaggerated. It is neither.


In a national intercollegiate debate contest, a black debating team won by transforming the topic of the debate, one that that had nothing to do with race, into a race question.

But to object to this, or to argue that a team might be disqualified for yelling “f— the time” when told it had gone over the time limit, or to ask what performing hip-hop has to do with the topic “whether the U.S. president’s war powers should be restricted” — is now deemed to act white.

This is another victory for the left. And another defeat for standards, for truth and for the values embodied by the men in the paintings of the Founders.

» NY State’s Absurd Statement About “Authenticity” and Common Core

Do you remember Barack Obama once plugged thousands of educational dollars into improving black Chicago student’s understanding of African “Rites of Passage?” It was a “movement” back them. The “movement” driven by a young Barack Obama and a younger Bill Ayers with “terrorist” already on his resumé, was so important that The Chicago Algebra Project for Hispanics was turned down for a grant to favor the “Chicago African Village.” What Hispanic child needs algebra anyway, but every child of African lineage needs to know what inspired the puberty rights found in African societies.

» Sheriff: Feds can’t make me enforce gun control

Given how easy it is to work around the 15-round magazine limit, does Cooke believe lawmakers are looking for a de facto ban on magazines, or that they just have no idea what they’re talking about?

“They don’t understand how it works because the legislator that introduced this bill, she didn’t come to the sheriffs and say, ‘Explain to me what a magazine is,’ because she didn’t even know. Then after the bill gets passed she was confronted on how a magazine could be converted, and she said, ‘Oh, people will just have to live with it,’” … “At a debate that we had here last year, she was talking about how these 30-round magazines, once people are done shooting, they’re no good anymore because you just throw them away. She has no clue about what a gun is or a magazine is, and yet she’s trying to outlaw them federally,” …

… “An armed society is a polite society. If you ask a majority of cops on the street, they’ll tell you the way to reduce the number of victims of these mass shootings is to have a well-armed public that can shoot back and kill these people and neutralize them before they kill too many,”

Officials from nine Western states say it’s time they take control of federal lands within their borders.

The lawmakers and county commissioners met at Utah’s Capitol on Friday to discuss their joint goal of wresting oil-, timber- and mineral-rich lands away from the feds.

“What’s happened in Nevada is really just a symptom of a much larger problem,”

Funny how this is ‘old news’, and it’s only been 8 days. Funny too, how much can happen in 8 days.

» Emails Show Corruption At Heart Of Administration

New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of Tea Party and other conservative groups. This is no mere scandal — it’s a major breach of the law.

What’s shocking is that this discussion came just days before Lerner acknowledged that the IRS had investigated tea-party and other conservative groups but insisted that it was an isolated incident conducted by low-level officials in the IRS’ Cincinnati office.
It was a lie. … it was a high-level conspiracy to use the offices and powers of the federal government — including the IRS, FEC and Justice — to falsely prosecute and harass the tea party and conservative political groups that opposed the Obama administration.
How do we know that the groups were “conservative?” Just two days after her email to Flax, Lerner admitted in an email to a Washington Post reporter that she “can’t confirm that there was anyone on the other side of the political spectrum” targeted by the IRS.
In short, it was a politically motivated witch hunt.

» New IRS documents: Lerner colluded with DOJ to prosecute conservative groups

Reps. Issa and Jordan allege that the newly released IRS documents reveal that Lois Lerner, the Director of the IRS Exempt Organizations office at the time, was in contact with Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department officials regarding possible prosecutions of tax-exempt groups Lerner deemed to be “dangerous” to the Democrats especially the Obama administration.

Since the day these documents were made public, armed agents of the federal government were backed down and forced to retreat by hundreds of armed and pissed off citizens of the same political persuasion as the people being targeted by the IRS and DOJ.

» As Goes North Carolina So go Republican hopes to take over the Senate.

Hagan is extremely vulnerable. She’s a Reid follower who voted for Obamacare and most of the president’s agenda … touting Hagan is too tame a tactic for Democrats. So she and Reid are playing hardball, intervening in the GOP Senate primary against Tillis. In Hagan’s first ad last week, she attacked Tillis for commenting favorably on Obamacare but criticizing Hagan for voting for it.

Hagan hasn’t developed a strong identity in Washington, nor was she a high-visibility figure in North Carolina either—until the past six months. What changed was the exposure as a lie of Obama’s promise that folks could keep their health insurance. Like other Democratic senators, Hagan had routinely said the same thing and was caught on tape saying so.

When Americans for Prosperity began running TV ads with video of her repeating Obama’s false claim, she panicked. When questioned about her statement, she ran away from reporters at one point.

When you are told what you can and cannot eat or drink via Democrat sponsored legislation, that is Socialism.

If you don’t behave and do what I want says Uncle Sam, then I will take away your privileges, that is Socialism. A carrot and stick approach to governing its people like a parent to a child, that is Socialism.

    » ‘Punished for Teaching Science’: Popular Teacher Suspended for ‘Research and Development of Imitation Weapons’

    Schiller, who teaches at the Cortines School of Visual & Performing Arts, in Los Angeles, California, is in hot water because two of his students turned in science projects designed to shoot little projectiles. One of the projects used compressed air, the other consisted of a tube surrounded by a coil and was powered by a standard AA battery.

    Sounds pretty cool, and very ingenious. But an unnamed school employee [busy-body, panic-prone, big-mouthed, little-brained, gun-alarmist liberal pussy] caught sight of one of these devices and “raised concerns.” Officials with the Los Angeles Unified School District then reportedly accused Schiller of “supervising the building, research and development of imitation weapons.” And now he’s been suspended.

    Yes, I edited that excerpt for accuracy.

    As the Times notes, President Obama not only supervised but actually operated a more powerful air-pressure device at a White House Science Fair that could launch a marshmallow nearly 200 feet. Perhaps, he, too, should be reprimanded for corrupting the youth.

    Raw Footage of (THHO)Obama distracting a gun-wielding domestic terrorist so SS could sneak up on him.

    Perhaps there is more to this story. The Los Angeles Unified School District on Thursday published a statement saying that, while it does not comment on ongoing investigations, “We will always err on the side of protecting students.” While no one wants to see another school shooting, one wonders if the “concerns” voiced about Schiller’s students were driven less by the prospect of violence than by politically correct concerns about promoting a “gun free culture.”
    Educators shouldn’t be punished for doing their jobs, nor should students’ education suffer because of political correctness. Barring the revelation of damning undisclosed facts, Schiller’s suspension should be lifted.

    » Why It’s So Hard to Discuss Guns Rationally With Some People

    Why do progressives deny the right to self-defense? Why do they refuse to acknowledge the benefit firearms provide society? Why do they ignore the Second Amendment (and any other part of the Constitution they find inconvenient)? Why would they deny children and teachers the only proven, effective means to protect their very lives when the worst-case scenario comes to pass?

    There are three primary factors involved. To buy into these factors, one need not even consider themselves a progressive, they merely need to be a statist, one who believes in the supremacy of government. For the progressive/statist — first and foremost — government is the solution to every problem, therefore governmental power must always be increased, taxes must always rise, income must always be redistributed and only elite of self-imagined experts are qualified to run the nation and the lives of its citizens. For their own benefit, of course.


    The foremost of unalienable, natural rights is the right to self-defense. Without it, what other right truly matters?


    An instructive example is the Clinton gun ban, in effect for a decade (1994-2004). The ban restricted a favorite bugaboo of progressives/statists: the so-called “assault weapon.”
    … At the end of the decade, the law was allowed to sunset with only token progressive resistance. This was due primarily to a citizen backlash that swept substantial numbers of Democrats out of office, and also the undeniable fact that the ban accomplished nothing in terms of public safety

    » The War for the West

    We should exhaust the political remedies before resorting to civil disobedience.

    … the laws and actions that put the federal government’s name on that land are rightly being contested. The regulations that removed a rancher’s generations-old property right to graze that land are also rightly being contested. The hard question is, What’s the better way to contest those laws and regulations?

    The Bundys chose to fight through fairly straightforward civil disobedience. They refused to comply with laws they felt were unjust and illegitimate. That’s a dangerous course fraught with personal consequences, as they have seen and will continue to see. The people who showed up to support them were also engaged in civil disobedience and, by all accounts, were prepared to accept the consequences of their actions.

    If we don’t make a good-faith effort to exhaust the political and legal processes set up by our Constitution, then we not only usurp the system that allows our society to succeed and prosper, but we undermine our own arguments — both with the law and with the public that we need to bring to our side if we’re going to win.

    The author (Carl Graham) is saying that in the U.S. – in this nation of laws – the process of legal contest was aborted; that anarchy ruled the day as citizens skipped over the legal processes and took up arms against the federal government.

    It’s a valid argument. If our Constitutional Republic is to remain in intact, all the rules and procedures defined in the Constitution must remain intact. While I believe the second amendment is there to provide the people the means to stand up to tyrannical government, I recognize the absolute necessity to properly define, identify and gauge the tyranny.

    So I’m trying to take measure of the tyranny.

    Starting with the obvious – BLM, a bureau of unelected land managers having assumed some of the constitutional responsibilities of Congress to make up their own rules and regulations and then enforce them with armed (to the teeth) SWAT-style faux LEOs.
    After having destroyed private property, killed some of Bundy’s cattle and carting off the rest; tazing his son, attacked with dogs and tazers … what are the odds that the Bundy family would still be alive today had they stood alone?
    That too, is a valid argument … just ask David Koresh or Randy Weaver … or not, they’re both dead of lead poisoning delivered by SWAT-style faux LEOs of the unelected bureau of ATF. Sure, they were both probably batshit crazy but they were nevertheless murdered by federal agents undeterred by the armed militias that Bundy had.

    So, did all those Bundy supporters jump the gun? Would the Bundy family be dead right now without their support? Well, fortunately for them, we can’t ever know.

    As for that “good-faith effort to exhaust the political and legal processes set up by our Constitution“, I ask who (or whom?) do we address in that process?
    The Department of Justice? The head of which decides for himself what laws he will enforce and which will be ignored and ridiculed?
    Congress? The only body of legislators constitutionally authorized to make law has for decades allowed (and encouraged) unelected bureaus (BLM, ATF, EPA … ) to usurp their authority.
    The Courts? The President?
    The political and legal process is exhausted.

    … the left is adept as destroying language and replacing meaningful words with meaningless words.

    There was no word in Newspeak for freedom. We can look forward to an English language in which there is no word for marriage. And what does freedom mean anyway in a country where most things are banned, but we are constantly throwing holidays to celebrate how free we are?


    The old Bill of Rights extended rights irrespective of group membership. The new one wipes out universal rights and replaces them with particular privileges.
    … Why do gay activists get a government-bonded right, complete with Federal enforcement, while polygamy is outlawed? The only answers are rationalizations.

    Every Democratic presidential candidate was against gay marriage in 2008 and for it now. What changed? Nothing, except the money changing hands and sitcoms about gay couples. And the latter is what it comes down to. Instead of church and state, we are stuck with sitcom and state where the existence of a television comedy is a reflection of national values.

    And what happens when one of the burgeoning shows about polygamous marriages becomes a big hit? Then we’ll have no choice but to ratify polygamous marriage equality because that’s the new national values system and the television ratings prove that everyone is clearly down with it.

    Here’s a disturbing thing. I did ask some of my gay activist friends, I was like, “Look, here’s a list; 6,500 people gave the same amount that he did or more in California. Should we go down the list and sort of start targeting all these people?” And I asked this facetiously, and people were like, “Let’s do it. Let’s find out where those people live. It’s all-” To me, that’s a disturbing level of targeting people.

    501(c)(4) groups.
    Sound familiar?

    The same tax exempt status that the IRS did everything within their power to prevent Tea Party and conservative groups from gaining under the excuse that they would be involved in the political process.
    These groups, La Raza, the NAACP are directly involved in elections, legislation, political advocacy — you know, all those things that Lois Lerner, along with Liberal Democrat Elijah Cummings, Sheldon Whitehouse, Chuck Schumer and others were demanding Tea Party groups be investigated by the Justice Department for attempting to do.


    there is more evidence that Barack Hussein Obama is involved in this IRS targeting of conservatives than there is man-made Climate Change.

    501(c)(4) groups like La Raza proudly proclaim their involvement in advocating on behalf of a political party or political cause. They have no qualms about standing neck deep in partisan politicking.
    And they have no fear of doing it.
    They are safe from scrutiny. Safe from threats of prosecution. Safe from White House-coordinated shock-troops from the ATF, OSHA or the IRS. Their confidential tax documents will never end up in the hands of Elijah Cummings or Sheldon Whitehouse.

    Because they are fellow-Liberals. They are down for the Fundamental Transformation of our country.

    Police have increased their presence at Jewish sites in New York and Washington and senior Jewish communal officials have consulted with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.

    “Don’t walk home alone late at night. Always walk with a buddy,” NCYI’s Ari Matityahu recommended to affiliate communities.

    Other suggested security precautions include not letting strangers into synagogues, employing the “Run, Hide, Fight” model of active shooter response and securing trash cans so that bombs can’t be hidden in them.

    All the Tried and Proven methods of self defense. Yea buddy. Sneak home in groups. Stay out of the light. Run. Hide. Lock your trash cans … oy.
    And if all that doesn’t work try sewing these little yellow patches on your clothes. But never, ever, let the thought of carrying a gun enter your mind. That would be uncivilized.

    » Someone in the mainstream media ‘gets it’ about the danger that Islam and CAIR pose to America

    … planted in the heart of Islam is the worm of contempt for the infidel, and this worm can lodge in the brains of otherwise reasonable people and gnaw away at their conscience until no conscience remains. If we do not acknowledge this, then we do an injustice not only to ourselves, but also to those Islamic thinkers, from Ibn Rushd in medieval Andalusia to Muhammad Ali Jinnah in modern Pakistan, who have worked to reconcile the absolutism of the Koran with the demands of civil society.

    … when I learned that 85 of the 350 members of the faculty at Brandeis had, in response, signed a petition calling for the award to be rescinded, on the grounds that Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a purveyor of ‘hate speech’, and that her presence would make Muslim students ‘uncomfortable’, I recognized the real problem that we now confront, which is not Islam, but the liberal mind-set.




    We are embroiled in an existential conflict, for which innocent people in the West are paying with their lives. Liberals tell us that ‘we’ are to blame for this conflict and not those who attack us. When someone flees to the West, as Ayaan Hirsi Ali did, in order to say ‘not so, it is they who are to blame’, instead of welcoming her many among us wish to turn her away. For her message is a threat to our complacency.

It will scare the heck out of youngsters and bore the heck out of anyone old enough to know that we have had to endure the lies that hide the agendas that have driven the Greens since 1970 when the event was first proclaimed.

    it has been the many inventions that utilize the energy sources the Greens want to “leave in the ground” that have totally transformed the lives of Americans and others throughout the world. What Earth Day is really about is not the improvement of life, but limits that will reduce the world’s population. The one thing all environmentalists agree upon is that there are too many humans. This is a form of fascism that goes back to the creation of the communist/socialist economic systems, none of which have provided the level of prosperity that capitalism has. Even Communist China has adopted the capitalist model.

    In total, the Bureau of Land Management rules over one-eighth of the land mass of the United States. That’s about the size of South Africa – or about three-sevenths of the G7: France, Germany and Italy combined.

    … If the Bureau of Land Management were a country, it would be the 26th biggest country in the world – out of 200 or so. Maybe that’s why the BLM needs such a lavishly equipped army (see picture above). Maybe it should join Nato and send a division or two to protect the Baltic states.
    … If BLM were Microsoft or Standard Oil, there’d be an anti-trust investigation. Instead, the BLMpire is the biggest collective farm in history, beyond the wildest dreams of Soviet commissars. Except that, as the Bundys have discovered, no one’s allowed to farm it. It’s serfdom without the perks.

    » What Would Reagan Do: Revive Europe Missile Defense

    Instead of a foreign policy that’s a blend of Neville Chamberlain and Monty Python, the U.S. should trade flexibility for some backbone, scrap the reset button and start digging some missile silos.
    … Gorbachev met Ronald Reagan in Reykjavik, Iceland, in October 1986, he hoped the U.S. president would be willing to trade his Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) away in exchange for arms-control agreements and vague promises of making nice with America.

    Reagan refused to negotiate the SDI away. He opposed the proposed nuclear freeze and put Pershing missiles in Europe to counter the Soviet SS-20s that were targeted on Western Europe. He put America’s security in the hands of American technology, not the goodwill of its enemies.

    Within hours of the election of Barack Obama, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced that Moscow would deploy SS-26 Iskander missiles in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad situated between our NATO allies Poland and Lithuania. He wanted the U.S. to abandon plans to deploy missile interceptors in Poland and warning radars in the Czech Republic designed to counter a future threat from Iran.

    Unlike President Reagan, Obama meekly complied and notified the Poles in a midnight phone call on Sept. 17, 2009 — the 70th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s invasion of Poland — that we were pulling the plug on that system due to Russian objections.


    Putin watched on 2012 as Obama promised Medvedev at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea, that after his re-election he would have more “flexibility” to weaken missile defense, which would help him fulfill his dream of U.S. disarmament.

    When the culture of hate toward Israel on the left has become almost indistinguishable from Neo-Nazis, and when violent bigots feast on hateful propaganda put out by progressive non-profits, the left must either conduct a moral reckoning and clean its house, or accept that when it comes to Jews, it is on the same page as a murderer who signed the post in which he linked to Max Blumenthal, “Sieg Heil.”

    “Curiously?” Seriously?
    Knives wielded by citizens pose precious little threat to tyrants. Therefore, knives are of no concern in the effort to disarm the feared citizenry.
    While any attack on children with guns precipitates anguished howling for gun control, any attack on children with anything but a gun precipitates nothing. It’s not even worth a mention by a president making a speech in the very neighborhood.
    What does that mean? It means that the conversation is about guns, not children. When there’s no gun, there’s no conversation.

    In other words, Judge McNamara holds that as long as a New York Governor—in this instance, Andrew Cuomo—offers the even the thinnest excuse for using the “message of necessity” tactic, that is enough of a justification; the reason for violating the state constitution need not be reasonable, logical, or even sane.

    » PROGRESSIVES ARE WRONG ABOUT THE ESSENCE OF THE CONSTITUTION

    In a 2006 interview, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer said the Constitution is “basically about” one word — “democracy” — that appears in neither that document nor the Declaration of Independence. Democracy is America’s way of allocating political power. The Constitution, however, was adopted to confine that power in order to “secure the blessings of” that which simultaneously justifies and limits democratic government — natural liberty.

    “In Europe,” wrote James Madison, “charters of liberty have been granted by power,” but America has “charters of power granted by liberty.”

    the Declaration “sets the framework” for reading the Constitution not as “basically about” democratic government — majorities — granting rights but about natural rights defining the limits of even democratic government.

    Between the left and the right, the argument is almost like the old chicken/egg question. Which came first – government or rights. But it’s not that simple because without the chicken there is no egg. Without the egg there is no chicken.
    But without government, rights exist anyway.
    It is that concept of rights existing with or without government that seems to be beyond the comprehension of the left. I say ‘seems’ because whether or not they grasp the concept, they will insist that rights are bestowed by government … and if that be true then government is justified in taking some or all rights away – by majority whim.

    Government, the framers said, is instituted to improve upon the state of nature, in which the individual is at the mercy of the strong. But when democracy, meaning the process of majority rule, is the supreme value — when it is elevated to the status of what the Constitution is “basically about” — the individual is again at the mercy of the strong, the strength of mere numbers.

    I’ve tried – with debatable success – to keep my mouth shut about the Bundy vs BLM story; separating fact from rumor is not easy at this point. But the more I read the more I am inclined to accept this as a case of sloppy tyranny caught red-handed … and that red hand took a whacking.

    It’s too good to be true, too horrific to be false. A government bureau of land managers, armed to the teeth, set out to enforce it’s will on a private citizen. But that citizen had the resources and the will to tell the entire country what was about to happen and call for help.
    His call was answered, not by lawyers or community organizers or civil-rights activists or wormy politicians – but by armed citizens.

    At the time of Waco and Ruby Ridge, the media had the monopoly on news reporting. There was no internet. There were no smart phones with the ability to instantly transmit photos and video to the world. What the world knew and when it knew was filtered exclusively through the mainstream media. The outcome was that people died, in Waco and Ruby Ridge, at the hands of armed government employees.

    The outcome of Bundy Ranch, in the presence of armed government employees faced with armed citizens? Zero deaths. Nor to infer, just stating the facts.

    I used the term ‘sloppy tyranny’ above. Government bureaus/agencies have become accustomed to perpetrating petty acts of tyranny without consequence. BLM drove into this situation with their cattle trucks, hired cowboys and armed thugs; and without any expectation of resistance, failure or exposure. (Sorta like barricading memorials and parks with no anticipation that regular citizens would tear those barricades down, march them to white house and dump them in a pile, eh?)

    The question is this, will the sloppy tyrants learn from their mistakes? And if so, will they drop the sloppy or the tyranny?

    » CLINTON/OBAMA CRONIES BEHIND BUNDY SHOWDOWN

    A BLM document unearthed last week discusses mitigation strategies for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone, just southwest of the Bundy ranch. The “mitigation strategy” proposed to use the grazing lands near the Bundy ranch as a kind of sanctuary for the desert tortoise, because the entire region is slated for a large number of solar, wind and geothermal energy generation facilities.

    The solar projects will obliterate most of the turtle’s natural habitat.

    Bloggers quickly made a connection between the effort to remove Bundy’s cattle and a solar energy project in Southern Nevada financed by the communist Chinese energy firm ENN. It was to be the largest solar farm in the U.S.

    Didja see that? Bloggers made the connection, not the media.

    If Democrat-linked entrepreneurs plan to turn the West into a massive arena for green projects, the implications are disturbing. The projects will eventually go as all others have gone before: failing as the unsustainable costs, maintenance problems and unseen environmental catastrophes they create become intolerable. The true goal of “green” energy, say cynics, is to make these people wealthier, not to save the environment.

    Whether that turns out to be the case or not, the Bundy story needs far greater and deeper media scrutiny.

    “It is an issue that we cannot let go, just walk away from,” Reid said.

    Reid accused Bundy backers of bringing their children to protest the BLM so that federal authorities might harm them, which would prompt negative headlines around the world and hurt the government’s case against the rancher.

    “There were hundreds — hundreds of people from around the country — that came there [true],” Reid said. “They had sniper rifles on the freeway [true]. They had assault weapons [true, though not technically]. They had automatic weapons [bald faced lie].”

    Yes, that and another case of school admins bearing unwhipped ass.

    For years, Barack Obama has called al Qaeda “decimated, “defeated,” and “on the run.” Recently in Yemen …

    the so-called “decimated” terrorist organization held its largest gathering in years – in broad daylight.

    “The U.S. intelligence community should be surprised that such a large group of al Qaeda assembled together, including the leadership, and somehow they didn’t notice.

    The main problem about this group is that it has a bomb maker who can put bombs on to planes that can’t be detected.”


    Clearly, al Qaeda is neither “decimated” nor “on the run.” While the U.S. intelligence community must now ask itself why it didn’t know about this meeting in advance, the more troubling question is what will Barack Obama now do about a terrorist organization that apparently refuses to be “defeated”?

    » No Mere “Hate Crime”

    The “hate crime” designation is over-relied on nowadays and this overuse has diluted its meaning. Spray-painting graffiti on a church or defacing a statue can be considered hate crimes.
    The bar has been set so low that refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple is a hate crime in the eyes of many left-wingers. Miller’s acts hardly belong in the same category.

    Interviewed in 2010, the now 73-year-old Miller was asked whether he hated Jews or African-Americans more. He replied, “Jews. A thousand times more. Compared to our Jewish problem, all other problems are mere distractions.”

    Miller complained that Jews were running the U.S. government, mass media, and the Federal Reserve Bank. “And with those powers, they’re committing genocide against the white race,” he said. Miller also said he had “a great deal of respect for Muslim people” and referred to Adolf Hitler as “the greatest man who ever walked the earth.”

    Miller’s views aren’t markedly different from those held by Morsi, former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Islamic scholars, Louis Farrakhan, or President Obama’s longtime pastor, Jeremiah Wright. Their hatred is derived from a common, age-old bloodlust that, if not challenged, metastasizes in horrific ways. Unfortunately, the disease appears to be once again on the rise.

    During October’s partial government shutdown, Burwell sent the memo for the National Park Service to shutter its public attractions, including open-air memorials in Washington such as the World War II Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Korean War Veterans Memorial.

    That decision made the World War II Memorial a flash point of controversy during the shutdown, as elderly veterans coming to the nation’s capital on Honor Flights were turned away by barricades.

    In far too many instances, and especially in regards to corrupted governments, “legal” merely means that a self-serving government has given itself carte blanche to pillage the citizenry—and kill them, if needed—in the name of itself.

    It has become painfully obvious that the most apt metaphor describing our bloated and out-of-control government is that of an aggressive cancer. It started out small, but it inevitably, irresistibly began corrupting the body that created and sustains it. It is arguably in an end phase, a final burst of destructive energy, where it threatens to destroy the host entirely and itself in the process.
    The natural reaction of the body politic is that it has begun generating massive amounts of cytotoxic T cells (the “killer T”) to fight the cancer. Those killer T cells attempting to save the body by fighting the cancer of government are the unorganized militia.

    Senate Majority Leader and Nevada Senator Harry Reid warns us that the battle over the ranch is far from over, and that the citizenry cannot be allowed to win …. In Reid’s diseased mind, the government must win, because the government must always win. The cancer must be fed.


    The situation at the Bundy Ranch is not over. There exists the very real possibility of the federal government advancing yet again with heavily armed agents against the ranch and those who refuse to concede to the federal government’s “legal” tyranny.
    If they commit such a crime—and a clear moral crime it will be, regardless of the so-called legality of it—the federal government could very well find itself under attack across the nation from citizens who have simply had enough of the cancer that is a corrupt and tyrannical government that has shown a willingness to throw constitutionality and legality to the wind in order to advance its own agenda of consolidating power and stripping the Republic of even the illusion of liberty.

    By embracing the repugnant “LGBT community,” Drone means that no one associated with a company can ever have said anything that homofascists like himself regard as resistance to their agenda.

      Dromm, the city councilman, said there was no place for Chick-fil-A in New York, even if it remains out of the political fray.

      “We don’t need bigoted people even keeping their opinions to themselves,” he said.

    By “bigoted people,” he is referring to anyone who believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman. This includes not only literally all Bible-believing Christians, but 99% of people in general who have lived since there was such a thing as marriage.

    If Cultural Marxists can ram the bizarre and obscene homosexual agenda down our throats to the extent that a company cannot do business in the country’s largest city if someone associated with that company is suspected of holding a view that until a couple of years ago was shared by virtually everyone (including even liberal luminaries Barack Obama and Shrillary Clinton), there is nothing they can’t use their control of the media to make us go along with.

    … Last year, Whittemore, 59, who headed a billion-dollar real estate company, was found guilty by a federal jury on three counts tied to nearly $150,000 illegally funneled to Reid’s re-election campaign in 2007. Unfortunately, Cliven Bundy was not a Reid donor.

    … something surreal happened. Love’s son was first threatened with felony wiretapping, but the charge was later reduced to disorderly conduct. Felony wiretapping? Disorderly conduct? This conduct is not even remotely the sort at which such statutes are directed, and the mind reels at the idiocy of these charges. Using the criminal law to target this helpless 15-year old is a disgraceful exercise of prosecutorial discretion.

    While strong public objections may (or probably not) make an impression on the idiots involved in this case, strong public reaction in the form of public ass whipping would make a bigger impression and would be recalled to memory by future boneheads.

    » The Fog of the Obamacare War

    Changing the way Census calculates this metric now, when we’re in the middle of implementing massive changes to health-insurance markets, seems like a good way to skew the numbers in the administration’s favor — especially if the new survey methodology is likely to yield a lower uninsured rate.
    … if the White House wanted the Census to produce data that could be used to assess Obamacare, presumably it could have asked that the Census Bureau hold off on the changes.

    She quotes health-industry expert Bob Laszewski, who explains how the administration could easily get the data:

    We only need ask the carriers for two numbers:

    1. The number of people they insured (and were paid for) in both the individual and small group markets as of December 31, 2013 — the day before Obamacare started covering people.

    2. The number of people that were insured (and paid for) in both the individual and small group markets on a specific date — March 31, 2014, for example.

    Why hasn’t the administration done this? It would have been easy …

    » If Obamacare Were Working, They Would Not Do This

    … the Census Bureau has decided to radically change how it surveys people’s healthcare. The result will show, just by virtue of changing the questions, that there is a decline in the uninsured in America. Consequently, it will be impossible to track if the decline is related to the change in the question or Obamacare.

    Don’t believe me? Here’s this from the New York Times:

    Thus, officials said, it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument.

    Six years ago, the contest between US troops and al Qaeda’s savage Iraqi commander, the Jordanian Mussab Al Zarqawi, ended in his death at American hands and saved Baghdad. Two years ago, President Barack Obama ordered US forces to shake the dust of Iraq off their boots.
    Now the Americans are back – only now they are not US soldiers but jihadi fighters of al Qaeda, fighting to overrun Iraq and establish an Islamist state there.

    Al Qaeda has made big advances in its preparations for a leap on Baghdad. It is engaged in cutting off the Iraqi capital’s sources of fresh water and blowing up the main bridges connecting the city to western, eastern and central Iraq.
    When Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq visited the water mains Friday, April 11, to see about repairing the system, al Qaeda ambushed his convoy and he barely escaped with his life. His bodyguards were less fortunate

    If we launched the Iraq War for corporate profits, we have a poisonously corrupt government that is a threat to world peace. If we caused Japan to react angrily with ill-considered sanctions prior to Pearl Harbor, as Paul said in 2012, perhaps we were reaping what we sowed in what is usually regarded as one of the most notorious sneak attacks of all time. If we are guilty of tweaking Russia while it secures a traditional sphere of influence, as Paul said when the Crimea crisis first broke out, it’s no wonder that Vladimir Putin lashes out.

    » The Roots of CAIR’s Intimidation Campaign

    [Brandeis sides with a spawn of Hamas over a champion of women’s rights. ]

    … while blatant summonses to jihad might stir the faithful in Islamic countries openly hostile to Jews, they were not going to fly in America — and even less so in an America whose financial heart had just been shaken by the jihadist bombing of the World Trade Center. The Brotherhood’s approach in the U.S. would have to be more subtle.
    … Now more than ever, they needed what HLF’s Shukri Abu Baker called “a media twinkle.”


    In the U.S., Hamas was now perceived as the principal enemy of the popular “peace process.” After all, its charter explicitly called (and continues to call) for Israel’s annihilation by violent jihad. Therefore, its known supporters — the Muslim Brotherhood, the Palestine Committee, the IAP, and the others — were tainted in the American mind as terror-abettors, hostile to U.S. interests. As one attendee urged in Philadelphia, “We must form a new organization for activism which will be neutral, because we are placed in a corner. . . . It is known who we are. We are marked.” The new entity, by contrast, would have a clean slate. Maybe it could steal a page out of Arafat’s “hear what I say, don’t watch what I do” playbook. The new entity’s Islamism and Hamas promotion would have to be less “conspicuous.” It would need to couch its rhetoric in sweet nothings like “social justice,” “due process,” and “resistance.” If it did those things, though, it might be more attractive . . . and effective. A Muslim organization posing as a civil-rights activist while soft-pedaling its jihadist sympathies might be able to snow the American political class, the courts, the media, and the academy. It might make real inroads with the transnational progressives who dominated the Clinton administration.


    With a network of organizations and CAIR as its public-relations face, Islamic supremacists have the foundation in America they have always craved. No matter how much care went into its construction, even they must be shocked at how well it has worked.

    » NEW EDICT FROM THE CHURCH OF GLOBAL WARMING: GET POOR, AND CUT DOWN ON THE COW FARTS

    … the latest stern admonitions from the United Nations to knock off all that prosperity, before the wrath of the Angry Sky Gods descends upon us.

    How are we supposed to develop and deploy the miraculous carbon-scrubbing technology, if we force the advanced nations of the West to cut sharply back on economic growth? Don’t buy this nonsense about “cutting at least slightly into economic growth,” because there is a zero point zero percent chance that China, Russia, or the developing nations are going to hamstring their industrial efforts in the name of global warming. If these people are serious, they’re going to have to drag the only part of the world that heeds their commands into a pre-industrial environment, in order to get the global carbon reductions they’re talking about.

    Increased efficiency? You mean like the way people in cold climates freeze to death when their government-mandated wind farms fail to generate the promised electrical output? Or when clouds keep the solar panels for working properly? I guess the only reason we keep forcing ourselves to use those cursed fossil fuels is because we like the smell.

    » EARTH DAZE

    A few years back, we were going to be killed by global cooling, overpopulation, pesticide residues, West Nile virus, bird flu, Y2K, cellphone radiation, mad cow disease, etc. Now it’s global warming.

    the IPCC is not just a panel of scientists. It’s an inter governmental panel. It’s a bureaucracy controlled by the sort of people who once ran for student council and are “exhilarated by the prospect of putting the thumb of the federal government on the scale.”


    “The amazing number that most people haven’t heard is, if you take all the solar panels and all the wind turbines in the world,” says Lomborg, “they have (eliminated) less CO2 than what U.S. fracking (cracking rocks below ground to extract oil and natural gas) managed to do.”

    That progress occurred despite opposition from environmentalists — and even bans in places like my stupid state, New York, where activists worry fracking will cause earthquakes or poison the water.

    » WHAT THE LEFT DID LAST WEEK

    Totalitarianism is written into the left’s DNA.


    The left and right are divided by their views of morality, politics, society, religion, the individual and the very nature of America.

    The left seeks to, as candidate Barack Obama promised five days before his first election, “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

    That is what the left is doing. There is almost no area of American life in which the left’s influence is not transformative, and ultimately destructive.


    –The left-wing directors of Mozilla, the parent company of the browser Firefox, compelled their CEO, Brendan Eich, to resign after he refused to recant his support for maintaining the man-woman definition of marriage …

    –Brandeis University rescinded its invitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, perhaps the world’s foremost activist on behalf of women in the Islamic world. Hirsi Ali, an African woman born into a Muslim family and raised Muslim, who now teaches at Harvard, was scheduled to receive an honorary degree at the forthcoming Brandeis graduation ceremony. Brandeis rescinded its invitation after protests led by a Muslim student and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, an Islamist organization, erupted over Hirsi Ali’s criticism of the way women are treated in many parts of the Muslim world.

    –The University of Michigan canceled a showing of the documentary “Honor Diaries.” The film features nine women who are either Muslim or come from a Muslim country. They speak about honor killings, female genital mutilation, forced marriages at young ages, and the denial of education to women in Muslim communities.

    –Six weeks ago, a University of Wisconsin student released a video he had made of a guest lecturer in the freshman general education course “Education 130: Individual and Society.” The lecturer, the political and organizing director for Service Employees International Union Local 150, delivered a diatribe, with obscenities, against conservatives, whites and Republicans. Last week. When confronted with the evidence that classrooms at their university were being politicized, the faculty of the University of Wisconsin reacted with indignation — at the student who made the video. And then the faculty passed a resolution demanding that the university ban recording any of its classes.

    –Today is the cutoff date for public reactions to the California Supreme Court’s ethics advisory committee’s proposal to forbid California judges from affiliating with the Boy Scouts, which the left deems anti-gay.

    ….
    This was just one week — and only selected examples — in the left’s ongoing transformation of America.

Perhaps in a month of two some large news publication like The New York Times or The Chicago Tribune will come out with an expose on Harry Reid’s evil in this affair, but don’t bet on it, and even if they do, it will be a month too late.

    … Mike Vanderboegh has harped on a theme, that being “We won’t fire the first shot. We will shoot in self defense.” Sure enough, it almost came to that, but not quite. The militia who did show up held their composure and did remarkably well. No one took wild shots, no one escalated the situation, but a strong message was sent.

    Faced with such an unthinkable reality, the Democrats marked the 50th anniversary of passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 not by hailing the progress we have made as a nation but by resorting to the despicable act of accusing their political opponents of racism to preserve their hold on power in Washington, D.C.

    Assuming their sting activities are over so the FBI can no longer dismiss inquiries using an “ongoing investigation” excuse, this would appear to be the type of law enforcement operation that cries for oversight hearings. If Sharpton did what Curington alleges, and if he was given a pass due to political connections, it would be in the public interest to determine why, who authorized it, and if anyone in the administration through the Department of Justice had a hand in ensuring no charges would be filed.

Legal changes are achieved through legislation, not through a sudden whim not to enforce them. No other attorney general has acted in this manner.

    For years, the Obama Administration, through its Department of Homeland Security, has been arming and armoring federal, state and local agencies, allegedly for national security. At the same time, it has made multiple unsuccessful efforts to remove guns en masse from citizens’ hands.
    At the Bundy Ranch Showdown, the federal government learned a couple of things: first, that Americans aren’t giving up their guns because they know that they are the last line against a tyrannical government; second, that your average American law enforcement agent will not fire upon a group of fellow Americans without a far better reason than a bunch of cows and some baloney about an endangered tortoise; third, that many folks still understand that government gets its authority from the people, not vice versa.

    … The internal debate within the GOP is showing up in commentaries among its pundits. It reflects to some degree the fears of its establishment elites who have managed to serve up John McCain and Mitt Romney, both of whom lost because they waged campaigns devoid of any serious criticism or confrontation with liberalism.

Meanwhile, cities and states run by Democrats are going bankrupt thanks to their devotion to spending and alliance with public service unions.

    … The development has left the government stunned and unsure of how to respond, and has driven the editors of the anti-gun Courant into a sputtering rage.
    … Malloy’s staff seems to grasp their terrible predicament a bit better than the hotheads of the Courant. Sending 1,120 Connecticut State Troopers on SWAT-style raids against more than 80,000 suspect “assault weapon” owners could not possibly end well.

    Especially now that we’ve seen what happened when a Bureau of unelected tyrants sent their armed stormtroopers to confiscate a handful of cows in Nevada. That didn’t go to dang goodly, did it?




    ~~ images via SSI: Courage is contagious, defiance is contagious, victory is contagious.

    Cuomo faces an even bigger registration problem in New York than Malloy did in Connecticut because many of New York’s sheriffs are in near open revolt against the SAFE Act, and have stated publicly that they will not enforce it. While they have been less publicly vocal, New York State Troopers have quietly indicated that they, too, will do as little as possible to enforce the law.

    Six of the Democrats who signed the letter face challenges this year: Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Begich of Alaska, Mark Pryor of Arkansas, John Walsh of Montana, Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mark Warner of Virginia.

    The Keystone XL pipeline has emerged as an election-year dilemma for Democrats.

    Considering the subject of Hagan’s campaign ads (so far), it appears she has only her greenie-creds left to tout. Her sudden support for XL would nix even that if her voter-bots happened to come-to long enough to look around.

    White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that the review of the pipeline “needs to run its appropriate course without interference from the White House or Congress.”

    So, the course that the review has been running the last five years against that interference is to start afresh now? Carney certainly has a talent for contradiction.
