… the first sitting U.S. Attorney General ever found in criminal contempt of Congress, regrets that he was unable to strip Americans of the firearms that the citizens would find most useful in defending themselves from tyrannical government officials such as himself
Mr. Holder and his allies on the progressive far left have long desired to outlaw this popular firearms because their characteristics make them extremely useful for self defense not just against criminals (most experts regard the AR-15 platform in .223 Remington/5.56 NATO as one of the best home defense weapons made), but also against a bloated federal government that is becoming increasingly lawless, tyrannical and overbearing under his blatantly partisan and possibly criminal leadership.
I want the whole world to know that I’m going to be hanged for helping my neighbor. I’m guilty of having shown someone sympathy. What did I do wrong? I drank water from a well belonging to Muslim women, using “their” cup, in the burning heat of the midday sun.
I, Asia Bibi, have been sentenced to death because I was thirsty. I’m a prisoner because I used the same cup as those Muslim women, because water served by a Christian woman was regarded as unclean by my stupid fellow fruit-pickers.
Whether deliberately or not, Muslims and their fellow travelers facilitate the next bloody Islamic terror attack on New York by using political correctness to compel authorities to put their guard down.
A new law will come into effect in Sweden after Christmas 2014, that will allow people to be prosecuted for criticizing immigration or politician’s unwillingness to tackle the issue.
… meant to stop Swedish people from complaining about their country being turned into a third world nation.
Anarchists, racial power groups, communists, would-be revolutionaries, anti-police groups and the Democrat Party have all attempted to exploit the shooting and the botched police response to further their personal and political agendas.
… the requested supply goes far beyond the demand created by Obama’s last executive amnesty, the DACA program for DREAMers. As of March, 550,000 people had enrolled; even if you assume, say, a million enrollees eventually, that’s 5 million EADs needed at most over the next five years plus, potentially, a million PRCs. Assume another two million work permits issued each year for other guest workers in the normal course of business and add in the current wait list of nearly five million people for green cards. You’re upwards of 21 millions cards needed over the next five years. So what’s that 34 million figure all about?
… The only thing that would seem to explain it is O deciding unilaterally to legalize some swath of the 11 million illegals who are already here, making them eligible to work lawfully at American businesses.

We watch in horror as Obama imports Ebola vectors from West Africa and prepares to decree amnesty for the tens of millions of Third Worlders already in the country illegally. But we need to remember to watch the other hand …
The point of course is to make America less like America and more like Haiti. Importing enough largely welfare-dependent Third Worlders of a race unlikely ever to fully assimilate into America society will of course be a boon to the party that maintains power largely by confiscating money from whites and redistributing it to nonwhites in return for their votes.
that was Sunday. One day later, the mysterious pro-Kay Hagan “lynching” flier warning about the GOP impeaching Obama appeared in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
… One day after that, Georgia Democrats are hinting to black voters that their children might very well end up shot by white cops unless they turn out for Nunn and Carter
… It’s effective, and the media’s not going to shame them over it. The media agrees with them.

As the election approaches everything that could have gone wrong has gone wrong. Not only did Obama’s aggressive efforts to stoke racial unrest on the border and in Ferguson to turn out the minority voters who generally sit out midterm elections backfire, but the resulting messes deepened the popular impression that he was in over his head. Now instead of pivoting from Global Warming to a minimum wage to some offensive thing that some local Republican somewhere said, the media is stuck in an Ebola-ISIS cycle that reminds Americans on a daily basis that everything really is out of control.
Obama is already receding into the imagination of liberals as the youthful folly of a political Age of Aquarius when millennials tried to levitate the Pentagon by electing a brash inexperienced community organizer to fix the world. They are writing him off as an act of political naiveté by a war-traumatized generation still unaware of the practical limits of the real world.
The progressive resurgence was powered by leftist billionaires and non-profits chasing power. They have the money and the organization, but they don’t have the candidates. Six years of Obama produced compelling conservative figures like Ted Cruz, Trey Gowdy and Mike Lee. There’s no equivalent to them on the left. It’s why liberal billionaire election spending is characterized more by the candidates that they are against rather than the ones that they are for. They have spent so much time and money battling the Tea Party that they have failed to build a post-Obama political future for their movement.
The progressive will continue to haunt American politics, but his current hipster incarnation is headed for extinction.
Since when did, “I’m offended,” become an argument that trumps all facts, logic and common sense? When did regularly claiming to be aggrieved on behalf of some splinter of the population become a high paying gig? How did we get to a point in America where people are PROUD to tell you that they’re “victims?”
The difference between today and the start of the 16th century is that our prosperity has allowed a few puddles full of whiners to grow into an ocean and worse yet, we REWARD them for bellyaching.
In the era of the Internet and reality TV, everyone seems to be chasing Andy Warhol’s “fabled 15 minutes of fame” and one of the easiest ways to get them, especially if you don’t have any talent or don’t want to work for them, is to throw a big public pity party for yourself.
There are people who quite literally make a living by accusing other people of racism, sexism and homophobia. Do you really think people — who are only going to be able to make their house payments if they keep making accusations of racism — are going to see anything other than bigotry when there’s money on the line?
A hallmark of August was pointlessly destructive civil disorder, and it’s only gotten more pointless. In late September, the makeshift memorial to Michael Brown on the street in Ferguson burned down, probably set alight by its own candles. This set off minor rioting, including the vandalizing of a beauty salon that has been hit multiple times for the offense of operating a business in a town where protesters are so committed to justice.
Some stories you have to read 10 times before deciding: ’Yes: What I thought was too crazy is really true.’
This is one of those stories. Here goes, believe it or not:
A black Baltimore bus driver organized a mob of 20 black people to assault a white family of three on her bus, which they did with gusto and pepper spray. All the while, the other black passengers hooted and hollered in encouragement.
All while the bus driver waited for the beating to finish so the attackers could get back on the bus. With her thanks.
The bus company didn’t give a darnn. And it took Baltimore police two months before they even investigated it.
How strange that Iraq, WMD, bombing, and preemption reappear in the news, but now without the hysteria of the Bush era.
For much of the Bush administration we heard from the Left the refrain, “Bush lied, thousands died,” as if the president had cooked intelligence reports to conjure up a nonexistent threat from Saddam Hussein’s stockpiles of WMD — stockpiles that Bill Clinton had insisted until his last days in office posed an existential threat to the United States. Apparently if a horde of gas shells of 20th-century vintage was found, it was then deemed irrelevant — as if WMD in Iraq could only be defined as huge Iraqi plants turning out 21st-century stockpiles weeks before the invasion.
The smear of Bush was the bookend of another popular canard, the anti-Bush slogan “No blood for oil.” Once the fact that the U.S. did not want Iraqi oil was indisputable, that slander metamorphosed. Almost immediately the Left pivoted and charged that we were not so much oil sinister as oil stupid
The Bush administration did not help much. It never replied to its critics that fear of stockpiled WMD had originally been a Clinton-administration fear, a congressional fear, an international fear — and a legitimate fear. I suppose that the Bush people wanted the issue of WMD to just go away, given the insurgency raging in Iraq and the effective Democratic campaign to reinvent fear of WMD as a sinister Bush conspiracy.
No one, of course, noted that the initial success in Iraq also helped shut down Moammar Qaddafi’s WMD program in Libya and pressured the Pakistanis to arrest (for a while) the father of their bomb …
It seems strange that in an era where little kids face suspension and expulsion for such offenses as chewing their Pop-Tarts into the shape of a gun, there might be any debate about the summary expulsion of college students who helped organize a violent riot. The sense that this is something that can be gotten away with is part of the reason it keeps happening.
When the standard is no longer “don’t physically assault people, even if they disrespect you,” the standard has been lowered; the subsequent thousand hours of cable-news roundtable argument and op-ed hammering of society at large is merely a negotiation over how low it will go, and for which groups. Likewise, when the bar is no longer set at “riots and vandalism are absolutely wrong,” it’s not surprising that young people might begin asking just how far down that bar can be pushed.
… increasingly in our society, the sacred and not-so-sacred beliefs of everyone but Christians are protected while Christians are deemed intolerant pariahs who must be forced to conform to behavior repugnant to their beliefs.
Notice who the aggressors are here. Notice who is being intolerant. Why can’t same-sex couples who want to marry under the newly minted law find ministers who have no objection to the procedure? Are they seeking the vindication of their rights or trying to force their beliefs on other people to the point of compelling them to deny their own?
The sheer acceleration of the left’s militancy should horrify people. Just last week, these actions seemed like a realistic but distant threat, but today they’re already happening.
Many of us keep warning our fellow Christians (and other freedom lovers) that their apathy and refusal to fight for their rights in the public square is going to bite them where it hurts. Could it be that this, along with other disturbing developments around the country, will wake them up?

When I was in the seventh grade I was tormented (along with the majority of my male classmates) by a trio of older bullies. But by the eight grade, I didn’t have a problem with them. Because although I was never able to successfully fight them, (yea, I tried) they realized that whipping somebody’s butt on the playground was more trouble than it was worth, when that somebody was apt to sneak up on them later with a 2×4.
Point: You get what you tolerate. Bullies don’t pick on those who fight back. As long Christians continue using scriptural extracts to justify being pussies, both cheeks become ‘other’, and will be slapped as long as you continue to turn them.
And while I’m on the subject …
Christians, stop trying to figure out who the anti-Christ is, ok? Refusal to participate in the fight because you think it’s the end times and you’re not going to be around for the final knockdown-dragout is just a wimpy excuse.
Esquire has a big story for their November magazine on just how awful it is to be a congressman. “We’re in a living hell and don’t know how to get out,” …
His district is drawn so conservative that he can’t be the soft-spoken, loving, caring Republican he really is. The hicks and rubes who elected him are bigots who hate the President, so he has to pretend to be publicly.
And if he doesn’t actually operate the way he claimed he was, those damn conservative groups will tell on him.
Congressmen have been lying to get elected and they resent like hell that there are now groups able to expose their lies and record.
The entire original prosecution against Sierra Pacific appears to have been driven by the Department of Justice’s interest in hitting a “deep pocket” for millions of dollars of revenue. The Defendants’ motion to set aside the settlement reveals a series of fraudulent acts by federal and state authorities that defiles our system of justice.
A California state judge, Leslie C. Nichols, in a related state case issued orders earlier this year describing what he called “egregious,” “pervasive,” and “reprehensible” abuses in the investigation and prosecution amounting to “government corruption.” He found the state case to “betray the primary purpose of the judicial system—to reveal the truth.” He awarded $32 million in fees and expenses to the Defendants, finding as the Sacramento Bee reports, that the state agency, Cal Fire, “withheld some documents, destroyed other evidence and ‘engaged in a systematic campaign of misdirection with the purpose of recovering money’ from Sierra Pacific.”
… instead of charging people who allegedly ordered evidence destroyed, the DOJ indicted the entire company. That destroyed the accounting firm. Publicly traded companies cannot do business with companies under criminal investigation, so Andersen lost most of its clients.
The prosecutor’s purpose, says Powell, was to chill resistance from other companies that might dare fight the Feds. The message: cooperate, or we will destroy you!
Perhaps there is some over-compensation and over-correction that is, ironically, going to cause a lot of pollsters to repeat the mistakes of 2012. There is no evidence that the voters who vote for Barack Obama are the Democrats’ voters. They are Barack Obama’s voters.
