“Feds raid Texas secessionist meeting”

622x350

So we have a bunch of people who were meeting peacefully to talk about secession. They say that Texas is the only state that retains the right to secede. In the middle of the meeting they were interrupted by twenty ‘Armed and Armored’ police officers including some feds.

It sounds like the Sheriff went off half-cocked and violated the rights of every attendee:

You can’t just let people go around filing false documents to judges trying to make them appear in front of courts that aren’t even real courts,” said Kerr County sheriff Rusty Hierholzer, who led the operation.

He acknowledged he used a “show of force,” grouping officers from city, county state and federal law enforcement to serve a search warrant for suspicions of a misdemeanor crime. He said he had worries that some extremists in the group could become violent, citing a 1997 incident when 300 state troopers surrounded an armed Republic leader for a weeklong standoff.”

1997?

Minutes into the meeting a man among the onlookers stood and moved to open the hall door, letting in an armed and armored force of the Bryan Police Department, the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office, the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office, Agents of the Texas District Attorney, the Texas Rangers and the FBI.

In the end, at least 20 officers corralled, searched and fingerprinted all 60 meeting attendees, before seizing all cellphones and recording equipment in a Valentine’s Day 2015 raid on the Texas separatist group.”

Missy Teaches Hate At Cornell University

My guess is that this hate session was longer than two minutes. And she was paid for this.

“Melissa Harris-Perry spoke Monday at Cornell University for the school’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Lecture.”

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said Monday that she hoped that Trayvon Martin “whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman.”

Martin Luther King Jr. is rolling over in his grave.

Obama Has Decided To Play Hardball With Netanyahu

Obama doesn’t know what hardball is. Israel is entirely capable of doing whatever it takes to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program. They have the means and they have the will to do it. Netanyahu will act with or without help or approval from the current President of the United States.

Survival trumps politics every time to the wise leader.

U.S. Secretary of State Kerry shakes hands with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu during a news conference following a meeting at Netanyahu's office in Jerusalem

“Now we know who to believe on Iran”

After anonymous sources in Jerusalem leaked to Israeli reporters in recent weeks the ostensible terms of the deal being hammered out, various spokespeople for the Obama administration contended that the Netanyahu government was misrepresenting the specifics for narrow political ends. They sneered that Israel didn’t actually know what the terms were. And they made the acknowledgement — the astounding acknowledgement for a United States whose key regional ally is directly and relentlessly threatened with destruction by Iran — that the Obama administration is consequently no longer sharing with Jerusalem all sensitive details of the Iran talks.”

Stupidly, FedEx Joins The Realm Of Politics

“FedEx Refuses to Ship a Digital Mill That Can Make Untraceable Guns”

The Ghost Gunner, which measures about a foot in each dimension. Defense Distributed

Last week FedEx told firearm-access nonprofit Defense Distributed that the company refuses to ship the group’s new tool, a computer controlled (CNC) mill known as the Ghost Gunner. Defense Distributed has marketed its one-foot-cubed $1,500 machine, which allows anyone to automatically carve aluminum objects from digital designs, as an affordable, private way to make an AR-15 rifle body without a serial number. Add in off-the-shelf parts that can be ordered online, and the Ghost Gunner would allow anyone to create one of the DIY, untraceable, semi-automatic firearms sometimes known as “ghost guns.”

Senate Dems Request Meeting With Netanyahu. He says Go Scratch

Below is a copy of the letter sent by Dick Durbin and DiFi. If I got a letter that was worded like that it would go in the circular file. One commenter hit the nail on the head:

If Feinstein and Durbin want to hear Bibi’s thoughts they can show up on the floor. What a couple of idiots.”

letter-550x555

Bibi responds:

Netanyahu declines meeting with Democrats, citing ‘misperception’ of partisanship

I regret that the invitation to address the special joint session of Congress has been perceived by some to be political or partisan,” reads the letter, obtained by The Jerusalem Post. “I can assure you that my sole intention in accepting it was to voice Israel’s grave concerns about a potential nuclear agreement with Iran that could threaten the survival of my country.”

Second, it has been revealed that Chicago’s police force has a secret prison.

The UK Guardian recently reported that the secret prison is an “off-the-books interrogation compound” known as Homan Square.

The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.

The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side known as Homan Square, has long been the scene of secretive work by special police units. Interviews with local attorneys and one protester who spent the better part of a day shackled in Homan Square describe operations that deny access to basic constitutional rights.”

“Islam’s Greatest Contribution To The United States Was Slavery”

Our President has said that Islam has had a profound effect on American history, that Muslims affected the development of our country. Shoebat says he is right. You and I know that it’s true.

Those of us who are old enough remember being taught about the slave trade in the early years of the United States. American and European ships brought black Africans to our shores but who rounded up those slaves and brought them to the ships? Muslims.

muslim slaver

And they’re still doing it. This is an image of a slave sale in Mosul, Iraq.

slave trade in iraq

Yes, Islam has had its effect on the development of the United States. It was not as positive an effect as President Obama would have us believe.

Our dear leader loves to talk about how Islam has been in the fabric of our nation since its birth. My Colleague Ted Shoebat has talked about the Barbary Pirate wars, but prior to the American Revolution the Arab Muslims of North Africa biggest economic trade was to supply Slaves all over the world of which about 5% of all African slaves ended up here in the USA/Colonies with the majority going to Central and South America as well as slaves in the MIddle East and India.”

‘The Science Guy’ Says Jews Just Need To Be Nicer To Their Neighbors

How does ‘Be Nicer’ look to this d*ckhead?

Allow the enemy to take part in Israeli elections? Check.

Allow them the same rights as Jews to hold office in Israel? Check

Care for others regardless of race or ethnicity? Check

Develop medicines and cures that help all mankind? Check

Make concessions to their enemies like ceding the entire Sinai peninsula back to Egypt after capturing it during the six-day war? Check

No. Nye would, it seems, prefer that Jews line up for slaughter without resistance.

During a panel discussion on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s suggestion that European Jews fearful for their lives should come “home” to Israel, Nye mocked the idea and blamed Jews for not being friendlier to predators who consider it a holy rite to slaughter them…”

It Looks Like Iran Will Have The Bomb

bomb

The leaders of Iran want a nuclear weapon. As a matter of fact they want a whole arsenal of them. They have been working hard to make it happen. They have defied every move to either slow or stop that development.

Now it looks like the President of the United States has agreed to let them have it.

He has sent Secretary of State John Kerry over to work out a deal with Iran. Kerry is dealing with Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iranian Foreign Minister in Switzerland.

Kerry is out of his depth. Zarif has been bullying him. He has been warned by Iranian leaders to stop screaming at Kerry. Now he has threatened to walk out of the talks.

American commenters have called this action by Kerry, “The Worst Possible Outcome”. They note:

As Walter Russell Mead noted last week, “a process that began with the goal of eliminating Iran’s potential to produce nuclear weapons has evolved into a plan to tolerate and restrict that capability.” It is quite possible that the most important foreign policy legacy of Barack Obama, who began his presidency by winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his nuclear non-proliferation efforts, will be the death of non-proliferation.”

Israel Hayom, representing the interests of the State of Israel, calls Obama and Kerry’s actions as, “An American about face, into the arms of Iran”.

But if this is the way things are, Israel must prepare for a harsh period, at the end of which we will see a changed region, because once the powers that be in the Middle East understand the proportions of the American about face, everything will look different. Among other things, just as Henry Kissinger predicted recently, the important Sunni states (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey) will begin a nuclear arms race because they, unlike the U.S., do not believe in stability predicated upon a Shiite country that with America’s support will become the most influential power in the region.

In the U.S. there is a considerable number of people who understand the scope of trouble such a decision would cause for Israel, the Middle East and eventually, the U.S. as well. They need to be called upon to join the struggle.”

Yep, Kerry, under Obama’s direction, is willing to allow Iran to become a nuclear power. Now, at least we know how the Islamic Armageddon will come about.

‘Practicing Mental Health’

That’s a phrase I use sometimes to describe how I make conscious choices to refrain from becoming angry about something. A couple of examples: Let’s say someone cuts me off in a parking lot and zips their car into the space I have been waiting patiently for while the former occupant clips his seat belt, starts his car, and backs out. Some people come unglued and rant at the person who ‘stole’ the space.

rage1

There is nothing to be gained by yelling and getting my blood pressure up. The man or woman who aced me out has already taken possession and I’m just going to have to look elsewhere.

There are a lot of people like the man in the image above who give in to rage. It can ruin their entire day, and, if they insult another rager, it may escalate into violence.

How about a perceived injustice? You may be passed over for an award you might have expected. You can either choose to accept that life is not fair or you can become angry and resentful.

What you choose says a lot about you.

rage2

Neither of the images above shows someone practicing mental health. They both show people who have given in to the sickness that is anger.

There are places for rage – instances where it is the right choice – but those instances are not an every day occurrence. If they are for you, you might want to rethink your anger management.

We see lack of control like this among the young, but lately we have noticed that many never seem to grow out of it. In fact, young people are being taught rage in schools by older teachers who never outgrew instant anger. There is something about rage that makes people need to express it. Who does it most?

vegancar2

Angry people; people who are proud to be angry and want everyone to know it.

There is also something childish about it, just as there is something adult about practicing anger management. Today we are ruled by the childish ones but there is a possibility that that may be reversing course. The 2014 election was an indication. We shall see. Don’t forget, those angry people are still teaching our kids. They are also populating the bureaucracy.

“Homeland Security Cautions Americans Shopping at Malls”

Let’s see. Would you avoid the mall? Or would you try to do what you thought was best to help ensure the safety of yourself and your loved ones while there? Mall of America has made the choice for you. They want you to stay away. They don’t allow you to choose the second option.

GunFreeZoneMallofAmerica-e1424624448235-441x600

At least they are trying to do so. I suspect many of their customers will still choose the second option. It would work with concealed carry. It would not work so well with open carry.

It appears that terrorism has now presented a new threat in the United States, and more specifically, shopping malls.

The Somalian based terrorist group, Al Shabaab, has just released a new video calling for attacks on America’s malls. They even went as far to specifically mention the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota.”

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told CNN’s Gloria Borger, “If anyone is planning to go to the Mall of America today, they’ve got to be particularly careful. There will be enhanced security there, but public vigilance, public awareness and public caution in situations like this is particularly important, and it’s the environment we’re in, frankly.”

Democrats Admit Their Koch Addiction Cost Them Dearly

Could be. Harry Reid didn’t do much while Senate Majority Leader but he did attack the Koch’s relentlessly. Americans, though, saw through his BS. We also saw that he refused to allow bills to come to the floor for a vote.

But Democrats made more mistakes than just attacking Conservative donors. The outcome of the meeting mentioned below sounds more like excuse making than a desire to actually learn why they lost so big.

140827_ralston_reid_ap

Democratic officials are second-guessing the party’s obsession with attacking the Koch brothers, saying it bears some of the blame for last year’s devastating election losses as the focus on the conservative billionaires diluted a party message already struggling for clarity.

Doubts about the relentless attacks on the Koch brothers surfaced as the Democratic National Committee held its annual meeting Thursday in Washington, where state party officials from across the country mulled what went wrong in 2014.

Led by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Democrats repeatedly shifted attention during the 2014 election cycle to Charles G. Koch and David H. Koch, who spent more than $100 million supporting conservative candidates through their various political organizations, most notably Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Partners Action Fund.”

“Wah!” Academics Upset That Their Indoctrination Centers Are Being Closed By Republicans

professor

From the New York Times:

Ideology Seen as Factor in Closings in University of North Carolina System

An advisory panel of the University of North Carolina’s Board of Governors has recommended closing three academic centers, including a poverty center and one dedicated to social change, inciting outrage among liberals who believe that conservatives in control of state government are targeting ideological opponents in academia.”

Leftist ideology was behind the establishment of these centers. Now that people other than leftists are in charge it’s going to change. The leftists don’t like it.

Professor Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit, has a great observation:

MEH. MOST EVERYTHING ABOUT UNIVERSITIES IS DRIVEN BY IDEOLOGY, SO WHY SHOULDN’T IT BE THE SAME FOR THEIR CRITICS: Ideology Seen as Factor in Closings in University of North Carolina System. “An advisory panel of the University of North Carolina’s Board of Governors has recommended closing three academic centers, including a poverty center and one dedicated to social change, inciting outrage among liberals who believe that conservatives in control of state government are targeting ideological opponents in academia.”

Yeah, because ideology had nothing to do with the establishment of those centers in the first place.

Here’s a lesson: Universities are like the trial lawyers. I’m not unsupportive of the trial lawyers, and I think that some reforms are unfair to plaintiffs. But when you align yourself exclusively with one party, and weaponize yourself in that party’s cause, you’re going to pay the price when the other party is in power. That’s the price you pay for whoring yourself out.”

“DHS Report Warns Of The Real Terror Threat To America: Right-Wingers”

This headline at Fox Nation is deceiving. Intentionally so, I’d say. They even include an image of some nice, patriotic, American ladies:

patriot ladies

But the article isn’t about regular conservative people. It’s about a report from the Department of Homeland Security that deals with the ‘Sovereign Citizen’ movement.

A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month and reviewed by CNN, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists.

The report cites “24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010,” or as ISIS calls it, “a slow Tuesday morning.”

According to Wikipedia:

The sovereign citizen movement is a loose grouping of American litigants, commentators, tax protesters and financial-scheme promoters. Self-described sovereign citizens take the position that they are answerable only to their particular interpretation of the common law[1] and are not subject to any statutes or proceedings at the federal, state or municipal levels or that they do not recognize U.S. currency and that they are “free of any legal constraints.”[2][3][4] They especially reject most forms of taxation as illegitimate.[5] Participants in the movement argue this concept in opposition to “federal citizens” who, they say, have unknowingly forfeited their rights by accepting some aspect of federal law.[6]”

Sovereign citizens sound more like anarchists than Conservatives.

They also note that members of the movement have committed violent acts and fraud. Referring to them as ‘Right Wingers’ is incorrect. In this report from CNN Carol Costello does what she can to smear conservatives with the Sovereign Citizen report.

“Oath Keepers Can Stop Martial Law”

Here is the trailer for a new film being produced with the Oathkeepers. You can help.

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Elias with Oath Keepers here. I am reflecting back on something I’ve noticed in recent years. Let us recall that it was the Republican Party’s rejection of Ron Paul in the 2008 Presidential campaign that caused our Founder, Stewart Rhodes, to create this organization.

I note that Oath Keepers was born out of the Ron Paul Revolution at the very time the Tea Party was spreading and growing like wildfire across middle-America from coast to coast, much to the dismay of established powers.

Since September 11, 2001, our dear Government has decided to crush dissent in this country by militarizing our police and backing them up with Fusion Centers from DHS and a mutual “chain of command” linking our police with the U.S. military itself. The current aim is to erect the infrastructure for imposing “martial law”.

Know How You Can Tell When Hillary Is Lying?

Her lips move.

“Hillary doesn’t think Pennsylvania voters are bitter. She thinks they’re stupid.”

hillaryheston

You know, my dad took me out behind the cottage that my grandfather built on a little lake called Lake Winola outside of Scranton and taught me how to shoot when I was a little girl,” she said.
“You know, some people now continue to teach their children and their grandchildren. It’s part of culture. It’s part of a way of life. People enjoy hunting and shooting because it’s an important part of who they are. Not because they are bitter.”

Heh.

I have hunted. My father taught me how to shoot. I went duck hunting in Arkansas I remember standing there in that cold water it was so cold at first light I was with a bunch of my friends – all men – so the sun is up and the ducks are flying and they were playing a trick on me they were saying were not going to shoot – you shoot they wanted to embarrass me so the pressure was on. And I shot a banded duck they were as surprised as I was.”

U.S. preparing to sue Ferguson police over charges of racial bias

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to sue the Ferguson, Missouri, police department over allegations of racially discriminatory practices unless the police force agrees to make changes, CNN reported on Wednesday.

The network, citing sources, said the Justice Department would not charge the white Ferguson police officer involved in the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown last August but was expected to outline allegations of discriminatory Ferguson police tactics.

The department would file suit if Ferguson police did not agree to review and change those tactics, CNN reported.”

“Ron Paul: “Good News” That Secession Is Happening”

Paul is old but he hasn’t gone away. He’s still preaching the same sermon he has for years.

Former Republican presidential candidate and congressman Ron Paul says secession is happening and it’s “good news.” Paul later predicted the states would stop listening to federal laws.
“I would like to start off by talking about the subject and the subject is secession and, uh, nullification, the breaking up of government, and the good news is it’s gonna happen. It’s happening,” Paul, the father of potential Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul, told a gathering at the libertarian Mises Institute in late January. The event Paul was speaking at was titled “Breaking Away: The Case for Secession.”
Paul said secession would not be legislated by Congress, but would be de facto, predicting “when conditions break down…there’s gonna be an alternative.”

Peters: “Marie Harf Is Exhibit A for the Comprehensive Failure of the US Educational System”

Peters is right about this but what he says is incomplete. Harf does not come up with this idiocy on her own. What comes out of her mouth is scripted by the Department of State officials and they get their orders from the White House.

Harf is a sacrificial lamb. She is being destroyed by her superiors and she either doesn’t know it or she doesn’t care – it’s all or nothing for the revolution.

The fact that she came before a national television audience and spouted her inanities does not mean she made them up. It means she was sent out to say them. The only reason she would be sent out to look like a fool is to make the media, especially the media on the right, pay attention to her and distract from something else.

John McCain Wants President To Have More Power

Screen-Shot-2015-02-15-at-5.39.04-PM

The house of Representatives has passed a bill that funds the Department of Homeland Security and sent it to the Senate. Several Senators, primarily John McCain, object to the fact that the House bill includes verbiage that puts limits on the powers of the President.

John McCain: Don’t handcuff president

Sen. John McCain said Sunday he opposes any ISIL war resolution that puts limits on the power of the president, saying on “Meet the Press” that such restrictions were “unconstitutional.”

“To restrain him in our authorization of him taking military action, I think, frankly, is unconstitutional and eventually leads to 535 commanders in chief,” the Arizona Republican told host Chuck Todd.”
