Tennessee Acts To Protect Licensed Gun Carriers

Two pages long and to the point.

“Want a Gun-Free Zone? Tennessee Says That’s on You: LITERALLY”

gun free zone

Heading into law this Friday is Tennessee’s Senate Bill 1736, which will put into action something gun owners have been encouraging for years.

As of July 1, if a handgun carry permit holder in Tennessee is injured, suffers bodily injury or death, incurs economic loss or expense, property damage or any other compensable loss on a property posted as a gun-free zone, they can sue the person or entity who stripped them of their right to self defense.”

Democrat Platform Committee Finishes Its Work

The Democrat National Committee has its national convention scheduled for July. That means they need a platform for the committee to demand their candidates sign onto. The Platform committee, consisting of 187 members, met in Saint Louis to hammer it all out. On June 25 they released the results of their work. You can find it here.

There are lots of conservative and libertarian commenters who are saying their work is far-left or some other term. It’s a good idea to look at it ourselves to see what they have decided are the most important sunbjects for the United States of America.

In the order presented by the press release they are:

Ambitious and Progressive Jobs Plan

Increasing the Minimum Wage – to at least $15 per hour.

Support for Public Education

Abolishing the Death Penalty

Trade: The draft strengthens the language on trade by pointing out that trade deals should not boost corporate profits while failing to protect worker’s rights…

Looking out for Working People/The Earned Income Tax Credit

Wall Street Reform

Multi-Millionaire Surtax

Multi-Millionaire Surtax



Honoring Indigenous Tribal Nations

Climate Change and Clean Energy: The Committee unanimously adopted a joint proposal from Sanders and Clinton representatives to commit to making America run entirely on clean energy by mid-century, and supporting the ambitious goals put forward by President Obama and the Paris climate agreement. Another joint proposal calling on the Department of Justice to investigate alleged corporate fraud on the part of fossil fuel companies who have reportedly misled shareholders and the public on the scientific reality of climate change was also adopted by unanimous consent.

So, Has Judge Andrew Napolitano Gone ‘Round The Bend?

Or is he onto something no one else knows? I’d guess the former but…

He says nobody was killed in the Pulse night club in Orlando until after the SWAT team arrived.

Judge Andrew Napolitano told FOX News that an FBI transcript indicated that no one died until 05:13am Sunday morning when the police SWAT teams entered the building.

“Here’s what is news in the summary – nobody died until 05:13 in the morning, when the SWAT team entered. Prior to that no one had been killed. The 53 that were injured, and the 49 that were murdered all met their fates at the time of, and during, the police entry into the building,” Judge Napolitano said.”

There are three ways to look at this, maybe more.

1. Napolitano is nuts and is making it up.

2. It actually happened that way and possibly some of the people who were shot were shot by cops.

3. Somebody in the FBI/Justice department put it in the transcript for some unknown reason.

The text of the alleged transcript is at the link above. After reading it I can find nothing that Napolitano can hang his hat on. Did he read something different?


Angela Merkel Says Britain Must Accept Refugees

It has been said that Britons voted to leave the European Union because they did not want their country to be inundated by middle-eastern ‘Immigrants’ who are almost all young men, are refusing to assimilate into European culture, and are committing crimes against Europeans. Chancellor Merkel here makes it plain that Britain must accept the mandated immigration or face being prohibited from doing business with EU countries.

“Merkel: UK cannot keep EU privileges”

Angela Merkel speaks in the German Parliament Credit: RTV

Ms. Merkel is threatening the UK. She says they must follow the lead of Norway:

Angela Merkel has said that the UK cannot “cherry pick” the terms of Brexit – if a country decides to leave the EU it cannot keep its privileges, the German Chancellor said.

This, Ms Merkel said, would mean that for access to the free market, the EU’s basic values must be adhered to.

Ms Merkel cited Norway as an example. While not a member of the EU, Norway has access to the free market because it accepts the free movement of people.”

Al Qaeda Says Omar Mateen Made A Mistake

Al Qaeda wants to claim responsibility for terror attacks. It makes them more terrifying. In this case, in their magazine, “Inspire”, they point out that attacking minorities like homosexuals robs them of that credit.

“Al Qaeda to jihadis: ‘Target white Americans, avoid minorities, because US mislabels attacks as ‘hate crime’”


Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has published a guide urging jihadis to carry out more ‘lone wolf’ operations in the U.S. following the deadly terror attack in Orlando earlier this month and to set their sights on the targeting of white Americans.

The publication, “Inspire guide: Orlando operation,” which seeks to capitalize on the terror attack carried out by gunman Omar Mateen who pledged allegiance to ISIS, plainly encourages extremists to attack Americans.

While Mateen chose to target what the guide refers to as a “homosexual nightclub,” noting that killing gay people is “the most binding duty and closer to human nature,” it suggests to “avoid targeting places and crowds where minorities are generally found in America,” because “the federal government will be the one taking full responsibility.”

A bit further into the article there is this:

We standby and support all Muslims who attack America in their homeland regardless of their affiliation to any group or loyalty,” the guide states, justifying the targeting of American civilians with the suggestion that since they elect and pay taxes to a government with “oppressive polices against Muslims everywhere,” they are a population at “war with Islam,” and can no longer be deemed ‘civilians.’

In the guide, the Orlando attack is referred to as one of “the most successful Lone Jihad operations” and will undoubtedly “inspire others to wage similar operations.”

Inventing Shame At The New York Times

Daniel may well have learned to make whiskey from a slave. What he did with that knowledge, though, is written in the 150 year history of success of his company.

Lots of people have made whiskey. Not many have taken the raw moonshine and turned it into an internationally known brand.


The black labeled version of Daniel’s product is labeled ‘Old No. 7’. Perhaps Mr. Daniel only settled on his recipe after several tries. Aging is what makes whiskey dark and gives it taste. That’s why moonshine is nearly always clear. It’s not aged in charred barrels. Aging takes time, too. Years. Moonshiners are in too much hurry to wait for aging.

The Jack Daniel’s distillery is telling the story that Mr. Daniel learned to make hootch from a slave. That’s a good story and it may be true. It’s not a good thing for news media to try to make it look like Daniel cheated the slave.

“Jack Daniel learned to make whiskey from a slave, the Tennessee distillery admits after 150 years”

Jack Daniel, with mustache and white hat, is shown at his distillery in Tennessee in the late 1800s. The man to his right could be a son of Nearis Green, a slave who helped teach Daniel how to make whiskey

Jack Daniel, with mustache and white hat, is shown at his distillery in Tennessee in the late 1800s. The man to his right could be a son of Nearis Green, a slave who helped teach Daniel how to make whiskey

This year is the 150th anniversary of Jack Daniel’s, and the distillery, home to one of the world’s best-selling whiskeys, is using the occasion to tell a different, more complicated tale. Daniel, the company now says, didn’t learn distilling from Dan Call, but from a man named Nearis Green — one of Call’s slaves.

This version of the story was never a secret, but it is one that the distillery has only recently begun to embrace, tentatively, in some of its tours, and in a social media and marketing campaign this summer.”

Know Any Feminists? Ask Them This Question…

‘Why don’t western feminists fight for Muslim women?’

Better yet, have them watch this video from Ayaan Hirsi Ali for Prager University. In it Ali explains the differences between how western culture treats women and how they are treated under Sharia. She also describes the excuses given by western feminists when asked why they ignore the plight of Muslim women.

Ali grew up a Muslim. She knows Sharia. She has a pretty strong accent which sometimes makes her a bit hard to understand but the Prager U people have helpfully provided everything she says in printed form so you will miss nothing.

Obama Administration and UN Announce Global Police Force to Fight ‘Extremism’ In U.S.

This means you – and me.


The United Nations is a sharia-compliant world body, and Obama, speaking there just days ago, insisted that “violent extremism” is not exclusive to Islam (which it is). Obama is redefining jihad terror to include everyone but the jihadists. So will the UN, driven largely by the sharia-enforcing Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the pro-Islamic post-American President Obama, use a “global police force” to crush counter-jihad forces?”

Leftists Are Bringing Violence To Their Protests

Thirty white nationalists, that the media are calling ‘Neo-Nazis’ applied for and received a permit to rally peacefully. They were attacked by about 400 people with sticks and knives.

This summer is going to be ugly.

Yahoo!: “Brexit vote a warning to Clinton campaign”

I’ll say it is. British voters rejected the country’s membership in the European Union. There will be some difficulty as a result of that decision but voters there knew it and accepted it. They rejected the overwhelming control the EU had on their lives. They chose to go their own way.


Hillary Clinton is all about overwhelming control. She couples that with an alcoholic tendency toward anger and violence. Americans know about that. She can not hide it. She can only try to lie about it.

For Hillary Clinton’s campaign, this is something of a warning not to underestimate this disaffection, not to underestimate political and economic nationalism,” Richard Haas, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, told reporters Friday.

“After Brexit, Hillary Advises Americans To Vote For Anybody But Her”

“Masses rise up across pond – now get ready for Hillexit”

Mr. Carr says the Brexit vote is a warning to US politicians. ‘The people are in revolt’ – or something. In reality, the revolt has been happening for quite some time here.

Maybe the Trump phenomenon is an unheeded warning that the people of Britain were going to reject the European Union. Maybe, in these days of instant communication world wide, the people of the western countries came to a similar conclusion all at once.

Americans began by rejecting the establishment candidate, Jeb Bush, and clung to anti-establishment people because it is a Presidential election. In Britain the people did it with the Brexit initiative. Now other Euroean countries are following their lead.

This is from Howie Carr in the Boston Herald:

hill clinton

Brexit is the canary in the coal mine for the presidential elections here.

And the elites on both sides of the Atlantic know it. If the masses can rise up over there, they can storm the Bastille here, too. As distraught as the Masters of the Universe are over Brexit, what they’re even more panicked about is the possibility of a Hillexit, and an Obexit.

Donald Trump is our living, breathing Brexit — with a Queens accent.”


‘An Inconvenient Truth’

One of the things that leftists use to acquire power over their subjects is fear. They can make people afraid of Jews as the Nazis did in the 1930’s and 40’s. Muslims are doing it today. They have tried to cause fear among the populace, and especially the young, by warning that the increases in world population are unsustainable. We will eventually run out of food and people will starve.

More recently they have told us that the world is getting warmer and it is our fault for embracing technology and assembly lines and for heating our homes. The guilt they sell is supposed to make us accept the increased controls they intend to place on our lives and the wasting of our money to install solar farms and wind generator farms.

In order to pull this off they must have something they can point to and say, “See? It’s happening.” The actual temperature records won’t support their claims of warming so the data must be ‘Adjusted’ to make it appear that they do.

It’s all a sham. The world is cooling.

This has been going on across the western world. The elites have been consolidating their control. The people are rejecting them. It’s the reason we have Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders appealing to so many Americans. It’s the reason for the Brexit vote in Britain.

“To The Horror Of Global Warming Alarmists, Global Cooling Is Here”

cold weather ahead

At first the current stall out of global warming was due to the ocean cycles turning back to cold. But something much more ominous has developed over this period. Sunspots run in 11 year short term cycles, with longer cyclical trends of 90 and even 200 years. The number of sunspots declined substantially in the last 11 year cycle, after flattening out over the previous 20 years. But in the current cycle, sunspot activity has collapsed. NASA’s Science News report for January 8, 2013 states,

“Indeed, the sun could be on the threshold of a mini-Maunder event right now. Ongoing Solar Cycle 24 [the current short term 11 year cycle] is the weakest in more than 50 years. Moreover, there is (controversial) evidence of a long-term weakening trend in the magnetic field strength of sunspots. Matt Penn and William Livingston of the National Solar Observatory predict that by the time Solar Cycle 25 arrives, magnetic fields on the sun will be so weak that few if any sunspots will be formed. Independent lines of research involving helioseismology and surface polar fields tend to support their conclusion.”

That is even more significant because NASA’s climate science has been controlled for years by global warming hysteric James Hansen, who recently announced his retirement.”

Politico: “Uprising in the Rust Belt”

Democrats have turned their backs on union workers. Barack Obama swore to destroy the coal industry and Hillary Clinton has said the same thing. That means coal workers lose their jobs. These workers can see that their jobs are at risk, too, from Democrat regulations. Democrats have become tools of the socialists, the communists, and the greens. That has put them at odds with American workers.

“They used to be Democrats. Now they really could hand Donald Trump the White House.”

In the past, people here have turned to the Democrats,” said Chris Borick, director of the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion in Allentown, Pa., 200 miles to the east. “They were the ones who looked after working-class interests, in their minds. But there is a belief that that isn’t the case anymore—and now they’re shopping around for an alternative.”

Once Again Democrats Choose The Side Opposing Civil Rights

Throughout American History Democrats have opposed civil rights. They were the people who supported slavery. The Republican party was formed to fight it. After slavery was abolished they continued to teach their children that blacks were sub-human. They passed laws embracing the notions that black people should be segregated from whites.

Democrats have been the party of gun control, passing laws and regulations restricting your God-given right that is further guaranteed in the Bill Of Rights of the US Constitution. Recently they threw a tantrum on the floor of the House of Representatives because their demands that people placed on a no-fly list be prohibited from buying a gun. They had no proposal to allow due process for anyone finding themselves on such a list. They envisioned the list growing until everyone on the right was included on it.



“Professors investigated for presenting opposing viewpoints”

The University of Northern Colorado charges good money for wasting student’s time. Checking the costs there I found this page which explains how much it costs for a year’s ‘Education’ there. With the kind of attitude that prevails at UNC the students are not being educated. Rather they are being indoctrinated. Only one viewpoint is allowed. Professors are forbidden from discussing alternative viewpoints.

“Two professors at the University of Northern Colorado were investigated after students complained that they were forced to hear opposing viewpoints.”

"Coexist, baby"

“Coexist, baby”

The complaints were made to Northern Colorado’s “Bias Response Team,” an Orwellian office on campus that asks students to report their peers and professors for anything that upsets or offends them. When the news outlet Heat Street made an open records request for some of the complaints, it discovered that two students had become so upset about having to hear an opinion they disagreed with they filed reports with school administrators.

And rather than telling the students to buck up because they might hear those opinions outside of college or on the news or in the media, the schools told the professors to stop teaching that there’s an alternate viewpoint.”

Researchers are now beginning to test those possibilities on human cells in the lab. But CRISPR is already being used on crops, insects and more.”

The FBI Has The Manpower, It Has The Resources, But It Is Being Misdirected

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is the entity that is charged with looking into federal crimes. They have ‘Task forces’ that are specialized for different jobs. They have law enforcement arm and they have a terrorism group. Their leaders are sending law enforcement people to investigate acts of terrorism.

Amy Zegart has noticed this problem. She writes about in Lawfare in a piece titled, “Lessons from Fort Hood and Asking the Right Questions in Orlando”.

Amy Zegart is the Davies Family Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, a professor of political science (by courtesy) at Stanford University, and co-director of Stanford’s Center for International Security and Cooperation. She teaches and writes about intelligence challenges, congressional oversight, and national security policy. Her books include Spying Blind: The CIA, the FBI and the Origins of 9/11, and Flawed by Design, which chronicles the development of the CIA, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and National Security Council. From 1999 to 2011, she was a public policy professor at UCLA. She also spent four years as a McKinsey & Company management consultant. Follow her on Twitter @AmyZegart

We must remember that the FBI is under the control of the Department of Justice, making Loretta Lynch its supremem leader. We have plainly seen how Lynch is attempting to steer investigations away from radical Islam even though all facts point toward it.

Zegart notes in her article the following:

4. Law enforcement ain’t intelligence.

In Fort Hood, the FBI approached the investigation of Nidal Hasan through a law enforcement lens, not an intelligence lens. The investigation asked whether Nidal Hasan was a current terrorist danger, not a gathering one. In the email closing the case, the investigator wrote that the FBI field office “does not currently assess Hasan to be involved in terrorist activities.” What it should have asked was whether Hasan might in the future be involved in terrorist activities, whether his relationship with Aulaqi might yield important information about radicalization more generally or Hasan more specifically. The FBI missed the threat because it stopped looking too soon. The FBI was not collecting intelligence. It was hunting a suspected criminal.”

It is plain that the good people in the Bureau are being misdirected from the top.

So, This Gay Guy Goes Into A Gay Bar And Shoots It Up. Obama Team Calls It ‘Intolerance?

They say he was intolerant of the LGBT lifestyle/ They refuse to mention that he was Muslim and claimed himself to be a fighter for the Islamic State and its leader.

They have been doing this for the entire time Obama has been in the White House. They will not acknowledge that radical Islamists are waging war on us. Instead, they label the killings as workplace violence or intolerance.

The Obama administration is lying to us again. They have an agenda and it is to protect violent Muslims against criticism. They make lame excuses for them and point in another direction and the attacks continue.

Just like Mateen’s wife who drove him around to inspect potential sites they are accomplices.

“Loretta Lynch, Black Lives Matter Blame Intolerance, Not Islamic Terrorism, For Orlando Massacre”

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch made no mention of radical Islam in her remarks about the June 12 massacre at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday, instead blaming “hatred and intolerance” in American society for the nation’s deadliest mass shooting.

In a 9-1-1 call to Orlando Police, shooter Omar Mateen – a 29-year-old Muslim who killed 49 people and wounded 53 others – described himself as an “Islamic soldier” and said he had pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).”

Glenn Beck: ‘Slavery and Our Founders Part I: Thomas Jefferson’

The common story is that our country’s founders were racist slave owners. Beck says this image has been cultivated and invented by people on the left who wish to damage the stories of our founders.

This audio clip includes advertisements. It also includes an entirely new and different view, from an historian, about those who designed our country.


America’s Founding Fathers, admired and revered by generations of grateful Americans, have been increasingly disparaged over the past 100 years. The progressive left would have you believe the Founders were all rich, white, uncaring, racist slave owners — but the truth is something entirely different. What did the Founding Fathers think about slavery? Were they all slave owners who refused to free their slaves? This definitive four-part series on the Founders and slavery sets the record straight.

Here’s A Reasonable Question From

So far they have been unable to pass a ban in the Congress but one day it will happen. Either the opinions of Congressional members will shift or our President will try to do it via Executive Order. As the writer notes there have been other prohibition laws that were ignored by the people and eventually reversed.

“What Will Gun Controllers Do When Americans Ignore an ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban?”


Prohibition was kneecapped by Americans’ widespread refusal to stop producing, selling, and drinking booze. Millions of Americans smoked marijuana decades before majority sentiment creeped toward legalizing the stuff. Gays and lesbians not only surreptitiously lived and loved when they were targeted by the law—they also famously (and righteously) stomped cops who raided the Stonewall Inn, ultimately precipitating liberalization. And restrictions on exporting encryption were eased only after cryptographers illegally exported code—even printing it on T-shirts as an act of civil disobedience.

But in the wake of Omar Mateen’s bloody rampage in Orlando, gun control advocates think that overcoming the passionate opposition of firearms owners and imposing a ban on a difficult to define class of “assault weapons” is a swell idea whose time has come. This prohibition will somehow be different.”

“USAF Vet Forcibly Removed from Flag-Folding Ceremony for Mentioning God”

A USAF veteran who has for years delivered a stirring “flag-folding speech” at military and civic events was recently forcibly removed from a retirement ceremony because his speech mentions “God.” As Senior Master Sergeant Oscar Rodriguez, Jr. (ret.) was about to begin his remarks, several uniformed airmen got up, surrounded him, assaulted him, and dragged him out of the room.

This is Obama’s military now:”

Master Sergeant (MSgt) Charles “Chuck” Roberson is a USAF veteran who retired on April 3, 2016 at Travis Air Force Base. A month before his retirement, Roberson saw Rodriguez perform the flag-folding speech at a friend’s retirement ceremony. Moved by the speech, Roberson personally asked Rodriguez to give the same speech at his own retirement ceremony. Rodriguez readily agreed.


When Rodriguez stood up to perform his speech as requested by Roberson, a uniformed airman approached him and warned, “You’re really going to do this?” — as if Roberson was about to something offensive like burn the flag or give a profane, anti-American speech.”
