A government that seeks to tyrannize its citizens cannot allow them the means to resist that tyranny. Gun prohibition is inherently a facet of state despotism. As for conservative golden calf Robert Bork, who (in addition to gutting the Second Amendment) pooh-poohed the ability of armed citizens to fight such despotism, Samuel Francis retorted: “[T]ell that to the Afghan resistance, the Nicaraguan contras, and indeed the Vietcong, the Sandinistas, and a dozen other guerrilla groups that have laid their local leviathans low with weapons no more advanced than what we can keep in the carport.”
The great irony: The threat of gun prohibition is the argument against gun prohibition. In other words, it is precisely because a firearm in the hands of a conscientious citizen is so effective in protecting the inalienable rights of personal security and personal freedom that it is feared by sociopaths and socialists alike. That is the life-or-death issue that the gun debate will always be about.
What’s the bigger story, the one that involves the more venal behavior while potentially harming the lives of more Americans: 1) a few goobers rifling through the office of the opposing political party and then having the president’s men try to cover up the petty hanky-panky; or 2) a former president and husband of the then-current secretary of state making hundreds of thousands of dollars while the couple’s foundation gets millions, in a deal approved by the former first lady’s own State Department, which results in about half of this nation’s uranium falling under the effective control of the proto-fascist, anti-American leader of the nation with the world’s second biggest store of nuclear weapons?
The Clintons aren’t mere grifters. They are in their own level of grifter superstardom while putting all the rest of us at substantially greater risk of annihilation.
Behavior that once would have earned near-universal opprobrium or, in the case of the Clintons’ uranium deal, white-hot anger, now barely raises an eyebrow.
… because there are some who still don’t fully understand why the minimum wage is absolutely devastating for those it is supposedly designed to help, here are a few videos that might explain it …
these children playing with severed heads are going to grow up and come after our children, who have been disarmed in this war between good and evil. They are being primed and inculcated in the public schools with Islamic proselytizing. Our colleges and universities are hotbeds of jihad recruitment and radicalism. Any college student who does not submit to the anti-Israel, anti-American zeitgeist is targeted, harassed, bullied.
Our children are woefully unprepared for what’s coming.

… the catastrophic farce billed as Hope & Change has been extravagantly produced. But some things can’t be staged
One technique information gatekeepers use to change what we think is to tell us what we think. This works because most people are herd animals, who feel deep in their guts that to be parted from the herd is certain doom, and who will therefore believe any lie no matter how depraved so long as you convince them that everyone else believes it (except of course the bad people who have strayed from the herd). But sometimes social engineers get carried away with this technique and it has to be acknowledged that their data is fake – See more at: http://moonbattery.com/?paged=2#sthash.O5kVJsSQ.dpuf
Any damage caused by progressivism is an opportunity to cause more damage. Until America has completely collapsed into oligarchical collectivist anarchotyranny, the job of community organizers like Obama is not done. Therefore he is spending $163 million of our confiscated money to hire fellow community organizers to stir up more trouble in Baltimore
Our country is undergoing a hostile invasion. Paying for illegal aliens’ lawyers is the equivalent of compensating the Japanese for the money they spent on fuel to conduct Pearl Harbor.
Just after collecting his Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, Al Gore jetted off to the Bali climate conference to declare a planetary emergency, predicting that the entire north polar ice cap would disappear in as little as five to seven years. The Arctic should have been ice-free by last summer.
… Selecting isolated phenomena — an iceberg here, a typhoon there, even the disintegration of Syria into barbarism — is a substitute for the real thing, namely, the eighteen-plus years’ failure of average global temperature to rise in line with climate-model predictions. The pause, or hiatus, is a problem for climate scientists in the sense that nature is presenting them with something they had not anticipated

As part of his ongoing bid to “fundamentally transform” America, President Obama signed the Orwellian-titled America Invents Act (AIA) in 2011. If truth-in-advertising laws applied to politicians who front massively complex bills that do the opposite of what they proclaim to do, these hucksters would be jailed for their patently fraudulent “reform” legislation.
In truth, the AIA and its legislative successors are special interest boondoggles that enrich corporate lawyers, Big Business and federal bureaucrats at the expense of the independent inventors and fledgling innovators the American patent system was created to protect and encourage.
