» College Feminists Are Terrified That Sam Colt Really Might Make Them Equal

Some rapes on campus are the age-old tale of a lone female attempting to walk to her car or apartment, who lacks the strength to physically fight her attacker. A compact 9mm pistol or .38 revolver in her hands would certainly go a long way towards “equalizing” the situation, a fact that these fake feminists seem to fear. It’s almost like an angry little cult that lives on creating fears of predatory men is frightened that campus carry might reduce the number of predatory men, and thus, their best recruiting tool.

Hmmm…

» U.S. Senator says millions of Americans are ‘arming against the government’

United States Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) has never seen a proposed new infringement on that which shall not be infringed that he hasn’t liked, so it should come as no surprise that he is enthusiastically on board with a pair of bills recently introduced in Congress that would impose a five-year prison term for acquiring an 11-round magazine … even ban the practice of attaching two of the “acceptable” capacity magazines together
… Murphy, it seems, would imprison us for having 11-round magazines because he personally sees such magazines as a threat to his hide.


Murphy is frightened of a well armed American citizenry. This is very good news. Those who would presume to govern a free people should be mortally afraid of the wrath of the people whose rights they threaten.

The bills, between them, have 125 sponsors and co-sponsors. Clearly, the American people must have access to 125-round magazines.

» HOMELAND STUPIDITY CHIEF: My Job Is To “Give Voice To The Plight Of Muslims”
» DHS Head Wants to Give Voice to Allegedly Oppressed Muslims

Incidentally, DHS was formed after 9/11 for the specific purpose of protecting us from Muslims. But everything is all fundamentally transformed now.

» Muslim Ring of Peace Story Is a Lie

Remember this story the next time you are tempted to believe anything the “mainstream” media tells you.

» Obama Reveals Who Is to Blame for Muslim Terrorism

In reality, there are two causes of Muslim terrorism. One of course is Islam. The other is political correctness, which makes terrorism effective by preventing us from responding to it appropriately.

» Nothing but the Truth

The liar has little regard for the insight or intellect of his audience. Elites claim their fabrications are the result of conflated memories and confounding situations that often require subtle contextual analyses. Thus, the hoi polloi is forced to do a mental two-step and wrap its collective thinking around the absurd: the definition of “is,” leaving the White House broke, keeping your doctor, overseas contingency operations, workplace violence, random attacks on regular folks, sniper fire in Bosnia and RPG attacks on a helicopter that never happened, the execution of 21 Egyptian citizens, Yemen as a success story, Al Qaeda on the run, ISIS as the JV squad, an unknown video as the cause of the Benghazi massacre, or the miracle of jobs — not military might — to bring ISIS to its knees.

There comes a certain point when the simple lie sidles up to its bigger, badder cousin – propaganda — and is no longer about skirting the truth for some kind of personal benefit but intentionally twisting the meanings of words to manipulate the public, suit a political agenda, and bring about political, economic, cultural, and societal change.

Only a propagandist could get away with saying that death by something as disputed as global warming or as unpredictable as climate change places us in greater peril and thus requires more of our resources and attention, than death by a keffiyeh-covered, sword-wielding, AK47-shooting, zealot screaming Allahu Akhbar with a resume of decapitation, slaughter, rape, crucifixion, and torching others to death.

» Liberals, Stop Lying About Everything

The last few weeks have raised a critical question for all Americans: Is the liberal elite unbelievably dumb or unbelievably cynical? Do our over-credentialed, under-educated, would-be betters actually believe the bullstuff they are shoveling, or do they really think that we normal Americans are so stupid that they can lie to our faces and we will just take it?

I’m guessing Door Number Two. Liberals know they are full of it; they just think the rest of us are as foolish as the welfare-guzzling mouth-breathers who vote for them.


Liberals babble about how we Americans don’t understand other cultures, but when understanding other cultures becomes inconvenient to their progressive ideology, liberals cease trying to understand and mask the inconvenient truth by applying their own prejudices and preconceptions. That’s what they’ve done to the jihadis. These guys aren’t upset about the 1% not paying them a living wage; they’re upset about the other 99% living at all.


Like the big lie that both frigid cold and burning heat conclusively prove global warming, the existence of an all-encompassing rape culture is demonstrated both by the agreement that it exists and the denial that it exists. No wonder liberals hate due process – they can’t afford a search for the truth because the risk is too great that someone might find it.


The poor aren’t poor because the Koch brothers went and made them drop out of high school and focus on bong hits instead of calculus.

» 25 Quotes That Prove Liberals Don’t Love America

Rudy Giuliani has been attacked by the Left for correctly saying, “I do not believe that the president loves America.” Giuliani wasn’t wrong about that and he could have just as easily said, “Liberals don’t love America.” Sure, there are a few exceptions, but they just prove the rule. Most liberals detest America, want to fundamentally change it and are disgusted by people who really love the country. Don’t believe it? Then just look at all these quotes from unpatriotic liberals and maybe you’ll change your mind.

» We Can Kill Our Way to Victory

War is one of the few things in life we can reliably kill our way out of. The United States has had a great track record of killing our way out of wars. We killed our way out of WW1. We killed our way out of WW2. The problem began when we stopped trying to kill our way out of wars and started trying to hug our way out of wars instead. Progressive academics added war to economics, terrorism and the climate in the list of subjects they did not understand and wanted to make certain that no one else was allowed to understand. Because the solution to war is so obvious that no progressive could possibly think of it.


The same plan that failed to stop street gangs and drug dealers has been deployed to defeat ISIS. Heading it up are progressives who don’t believe that killing the enemy wins wars.

Now the same whiz kids that looked for the root cause of the problem in Afghanistan by dumping money everywhere, including into companies linked to Al Qaeda and the Taliban, think that the way to beat ISIS is with unemployment centers and job training. Many of the ISIS Jihadists come from the social welfare paradises of Europe where there are more people employed to find the root causes of terrorism through welfare than there are people working to fight them. So far they haven’t had much luck either.

» They sought paradise in a Scottish field — and found hunger, boredom and mosquitoes
From the comments:

Yes, I realized this watching some TV show years ago. It was about some fellow who wanted to build furniture the way it was done in bygone days, or something like that.

He went out with his crew to fell a tree, and they did after hours of labor. It showed them dragging it out of the woods, all covered in sweat and dirt.

And then it hit me, they don’t really HAVE to do this. If they HAD to do it, as the men of the past did, they would lie awake at night trying to think up ways to make it easier to do. As the men of the past actually did.

So, they may convince a handful of people to return to the caves, and they may strive to keep the poor trapped in their “quaint” living conditions, but in the end they will fail.

Because most people don’t want to be cold, hungry and sick. Because most people, in all times and all places aren’t insane.

March 20, 2000 Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past

Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community.

the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

David Parker, at the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research in Berkshire, says ultimately, British children could have only virtual experience of snow. Via the internet, they might wonder at polar scenes – or eventually “feel” virtual cold.

~~ via Eastern U.S. record breaking cold and snow as seen from space

I know what you’re thinking. “hahaha … look at the stupid warmies and their stupid predictions” or something along that line. Big joke. Yuk. Yuk.

You think the warmies are embarrassed? Wrong.
WHAT BOSTON CAN TEACH US ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE BY BEING BURIED IN SNOW

… The reason this weather is significant is because it’s indicative of a larger phenomenon; the fact that it’s right on the heels of the hottest year in recorded history makes it even more compelling. Yes, there’s an important lesson buried amongst the mountains of snow

… this is just one of many repercussions of climate change that has sciencists[sic] concerned. Our “destabilized climate” is a giant, complex, interconnected web of physics and meteorology that is admittedly hard to digest as a regular concerned citizen. Beyond extreme weather, there are many other not-so-great consequences of an increasingly warm planet driven by human development; for example, rising sea levels and widespread famine.

But put aside the arguments for and against the validity or stupidity of saying global warming causes severe snow storms. That’s not the point I’m after.

Look at this collage of recent Boston scenes. The point is pointed out for you.



Get it? The point is electricity. Under all the ice and snow there is electricity.
Electricity and a couple of other modern luxuries are the only reasons so many Bostonians are still alive.

If the global warming experts, the scientific consensus – Al Gore – (THHO)Obama – Bill Nye (the scientist wannabe guy) and the idiot that wrote the TerraFitness article above had gotten everything they wanted – 15 years ago when they said snow was a thing of the past – Boston would have no electricity right now.

This needs to be thought about. The leftist environmentalist global warmies have attempted to ban all use of all fossil fuels. If we had given in to all their demands there would be no coal-fired power plants now. There would be no nuclear power plants. Gasoline, oil and propane (if in existence at all) would be so expensive that the extreme majority of Bostonians wouldn’t have any. Those dump trucks and other machines being used to clear millions of tons of snow would not be.
I dare say Boston would be a raging inferno by now, due to the citizens burning whatever they could get their hands on just to survive.

The only reason we’re able to continue arguing about global warming is that we have been.



You Get What You Tolerate
If we had tolerated the leftist enviro-nazi agenda to the point of allowing them the accomplishment of their goals, we would not have survived February 2015.

» Hopelessly out of ideas, Obama admin solicits ideas for defeating terrorism on Twitter




The State Department is soliciting public suggestions on twitter for solutions to defeat “violent extremism.” Meanwhile the Obama administration is also doing these things:

Refusing to acknowledge that ISIS is motivated by their Islamic faith
Saying the the solution to ISIS’s violence is to find them jobs
Claiming that “right wing” terror groups are more of a threat than ISIS
Meeting with Islamic clerics at the White House who blame Israel for 9-11

Oh! I cannot wait to see all the great solutions forthcoming! It’s gonna be awesome!



Step One.

» Obama Regime Alienates Arab Allies

Obama was eager to provide those weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood, a hardcore Islamist organization that spawned Hamas and al Qaeda and that is explicitly devoted to imposing sharia on a global basis. Even John Kerry could have figured out that they would have been used against Israel if not the USA. Yet Obama holds back the weapons from a secular leader willing to fight radical Islamists.

» The Climate Con Goes On

Where is this likely to take us? President Obama has long promised to “fundamentally transform” the U.S. economy and ensure that electricity prices “necessarily skyrocket.” His edicts are doing precisely that. And now Christiana Figueres, the UN’s chief climate change official, has declared that her unelected bureaucrats are undertaking “probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the [global] economic development model.” Her incredible admission underscores what another high-ranking IPCC official said several years ago: “Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection. The next world climate summit is actually an economy summit, during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.”

Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are not in danger of collapsing, the About Face authors demonstrate; in fact, they are growing. Similarly, contrary to another scare, extreme weather events are not increasing.

No Category 3-5 hurricane has struck the United States for a record nine years, and Earth’s temperature has not budged for 18 years. Claims that 2014 was “the hottest year on record” are based on airport and urban measurements that are higher than rural locations and are always “adjusted” upward, with year-to-year differences measured in hundredths of a degree. Outside those areas, for most of the world – the 70% of Earth’s surface that is oceans and 85% of land area that is mountains, deserts, grasslands, tundra, and boreal or tropical rain forests – practically no data exist. So NASA and other alarmists falsely extrapolate from their manipulated urban data to fill in massive gaps for the other 95% of the Earth.

England’s winter death rate this year is almost one-third higher than normal: nearly 29,000 deaths in a two-week period in January, largely because people can no longer afford to heat their homes properly, due to UK climate policies.

Bill Nye “the science guy” recently asked MSNBC to link all weather events to climate change. “Just say the words climate change” when you talk about this winter’s cold and snow,” he begged…


Media reputations are at stake. They’ve been in bed so long with the Climate Chaos complex that acknowledging the critical role of natural forces, the expertise of climate realists, the debate that still rages, or the Grand Canyon between climate crisis claims and real-world evidence would destroy what little credibility the media still has. It would also start the collapse of the Climate Chaos house of cards.

» Top 10 Astroturfers

The whole point of astroturf is to try to convince you there’s widespread support for or against an agenda when there’s not.

The language of astroturfers and propagandists includes trademark inflammatory terms such as: anti, nutty, quack, crank, pseudo-science, debunking, conspiracy theory, deniers and junk science. Sometimes astroturfers claim to “debunk myths” that aren’t myths at all. They declare debates over that aren’t over. They claim that “everybody agrees” when everyone doesn’t agree. They aim to make you think you’re an outlier when you’re not.

» What ISIS Really Wants

The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.


Centuries have passed since the wars of religion ceased in Europe, and since men stopped dying in large numbers because of arcane theological disputes. Hence, perhaps, the incredulity and denial with which Westerners have greeted news of the theology and practices of the Islamic State. Many refuse to believe that this group is as devout as it claims to be, or as backward-looking or apocalyptic as its actions and statements suggest.


All Muslims acknowledge that Muhammad’s earliest conquests were not tidy affairs, and that the laws of war passed down in the Koran and in the narrations of the Prophet’s rule were calibrated to fit a turbulent and violent time. In Haykel’s estimation, the fighters of the Islamic State are authentic throwbacks to early Islam and are faithfully reproducing its norms of war. This behavior includes a number of practices that modern Muslims tend to prefer not to acknowledge as integral to their sacred texts. “Slavery, crucifixion, and beheadings are not something that freakish [jihadists] are cherry-picking from the medieval tradition,” Haykel said. Islamic State fighters “are smack in the middle of the medieval tradition and are bringing it wholesale into the present day.”


One way to un-cast the Islamic State’s spell over its adherents would be to overpower it militarily and occupy the parts of Syria and Iraq now under caliphate rule. Al‑Qaeda is ineradicable because it can survive, cockroach-like, by going underground. The Islamic State cannot. If it loses its grip on its territory in Syria and Iraq, it will cease to be a caliphate. Caliphates cannot exist as underground movements, because territorial authority is a requirement: take away its command of territory, and all those oaths of allegiance are no longer binding.

Muslims can say that slavery is not legitimate now, and that crucifixion is wrong at this historical juncture. Many say precisely this. But they cannot condemn slavery or crucifixion outright without contradicting the Koran and the example of the Prophet. “The only principled ground that the Islamic State’s opponents could take is to say that certain core texts and traditional teachings of Islam are no longer valid,” Bernard Haykel says. That really would be an act of apostasy.

» It Doesnt Matter One Bit What Obama Thinks ‘True Islam’ Is

While Sisi sees a dangerous flaw in Islam, Obama believes America needs to be “fundamentally transformed” but Islam is fine as is. You see the problem, no?

The president and his underlings somehow reason that the answer to the barbarity of ISIS and al-Qaeda is to “empower local communities” here and abroad. Apparently, if the community organizers rouse the rabble to demand that government address “injustice” and Muslim “grievances,” the alienation that purportedly drives young Muslims into the jihadists’ arms will abate. This is the strategic political aspect of the Left’s denial of terrorism’s ideological roots: If terrorism is not caused by Islamic supremacism, then it must be caused by something else . . . and that something somehow always manages to be a government policy opposed by the Left: insufficient income redistribution, running Gitmo, our alliance with Israel, surveillance of radical mosques, etc. Smearing your political opponents as the root cause of mass-murder attacks — it’s a very nice weapon to have in one’s demagogic arsenal.

» Not a ‘Hate Crime’, Bomber Targeted Tax Preparer, Not NAACP

a shining example of the idiocy of “hate crime” legislation.

This man was filled with hatred for his accountant and he decided to blow up a building because of it. He will presumably be tried, convicted and appropriately punished for doing this and justice will be served. However, if investigators had found that he had been filled with hatred for a different person (or organization), he would have been tried under different laws and had a much more severe punishment. The same crime would have been committed. The same damage would have been done. The same people’s lives would have been endangered. Yet the same crime would have had two very different punishments.

» It’s Time For The Firearms Freedom Act Of 2015

Time and again, the ATF has shown themselves to be capricious exploiters of poorly written laws, using crafty lawyers to pervert legislation to be used as legislators never intended against gun owners, manufacturing felons out of good citizens for victimless crimes.

A so-called “Firearms Freedom Act” could remove some of these obsolete and uniquely American restrictions on firearms, curtailing the manner in which the ATF could get into trouble, freeing them to focus on more pressing matters than the suppression of the basic human right to armed self-defense.

» Senator Dan Kotowski Doesn’t Understand Words

So ‘criminals’ & ‘Terrorists’ are getting 3D printers and are a threat to ‘national security’. (booga booga). OK. Let’s run w/ that. Does Senator Dan honestly think that Akmed the Dead Terrorist who is wanting to crank out 3D printed AK’s to kill as many Americans as he can GIVES A FLYING F^^K ABOUT A CLASS “A” MISDEMEANOR!? Really Dan? Do you really think that the local gangbangers are going to drop tens of thousands on a 3D printer or that they care about the consequences when they’re already violating countless other laws already on the books?

Do you ever stop being a complete moron?

I now patiently await the ISP to show up for making ‘threats’ and ‘harassing’ our legislative idiot.

» Eric Holder: “We are not at a time of war”

Here’s how delusional the Obama administration is. Attorney General Eric Holder, the chief law enforcement officer in the country, claims that the US isn’t at war (despite the authorization for military force request Obama just sent to Congress).

The US doesn’t consider it self at war, and therefore considers itself exempt from Congressional oversight. However, when it comes to reporting on the activities of the US Government, journalists should consider everything a secret and not write about leaks or military activity.

The Obama administration is trying to have it both ways so that they can skirt the responsibility of having oversight into their activity.

» Democrats Freaking Out as Obamacare Tax-Penalty-Fee-Fines Loom for Millions of Americans

Who could have predicted that 2,500 pages of law and 50,000 pages of regulations — that not one person read in toto — would turn out to be a complete cluster?

Michigan’s Sander Levin, the ranking Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee, and Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington, and Lloyd Doggett of Texas. All worked to help steer Obama’s law through rancorous congressional debates from 2009-2010.

The lawmakers say they are concerned that many of their constituents will find out about the penalties after it’s already too late for them to sign up for coverage, since open enrollment ended Sunday.


The whole point of the tax-penalty-fee-fine was to force people into the program so that Obamacare wouldn’t collapse under its own weight.

And now the Democrats are concerned?

Too late, dipsticks. Next time try reading the damn bill before you pass it.

From the comments:

I’m sure millions of Americans are thinking something like, “I voted for Obama because he said that he was going to make somebody else pay my medical bills. But now he’s saying that I’m supposed to pay someone else’s bills? That’s not fair!”

» A Revisionist Muslim History of America

The deceits of Peter Manseau and the New York Times, which never bothers fact checking even the wildest Muslim claims, are in their own way every bit as dishonest as Erdogan’s Cuban mosque. The difference is that they have the protective coloration of academia and journalism. Their dishonesty is more sedate and buried under protective layers of omissions and distortions.

Revisionist Muslim histories of America should be rejected, whether they come from Erdogan or the New York Times, because they are built on lies. And a history built on lies cannot stand.

» There Is No Modern Islam

Like math and the Midwest, ISIS confuses progressives. It’s not hard to confuse a group of people who never figured out that if you borrow 18 trillion dollars, you’re going to have to pay it back.
… Raised to believe that history inevitably trended toward diversity in catalog models, fusion restaurants and gay marriage, the Arab Spring led them on by promising that the Middle East would be just like Europe and then ISIS tore up their Lonely Planet guidebook to Syria and chopped off their heads.

Progressive politicians and pundits trying to cope with ISIS lapse into a shrill incoherence that has nothing to do with their outrage at its atrocities and a lot to do with their sheer incomprehension. Terms like “apocalyptic nihilism” get thrown around as if heavy metal were beginning to make a comeback.

Those few analysts who admit that the Islamic State might be a just a little Islamic emphasize that it’s a medieval throwback, as if there were some modern version of Islam to compare it to.

When ISIS demands Jizya from non-Muslims, it’s not reviving some controversial medieval behavior. It’s doing what even “moderate” Muslim countries were doing until European guns and warships made them stop.

If the French hadn’t intervened, the same ugly scene would have gone on playing out in Morocco. If the United States hadn’t intervened, the Saudis would still openly keep slaves.

Islam never became enlightened. It never stopped being ‘medieval’. Whatever enlightenment it received was imposed on it by European colonialism. It’s a second-hand enlightenment that never went under the skin.

ISIS isn’t just seventh century Islam. It’s also much more recent than that. It’s Islam before the French and the English came. It’s what the Muslim world was like before it was forced to have presidents and constitutions, before it was forced to at least pay lip service to the alien notion of equal rights for all.

» Islam: Banned for Blasphemy?

… the OIC seems to miss one grand irony: if international laws would ban cartoons, books, and films on the basis that they defame Islam, they would also, by logical extension, have to ban the entire religion of Islam itself—the only religion whose core texts actively and unequivocally defame other religions, including by name.

Considering that the word “infidel” (kafir) is one of Islam’s most derogatory terms, what if a Christian book or Western cartoon appeared declaring that “Infidels are they who say Muhammad is the prophet of God—may God’s curse be upon them”? If Muslims would consider that a great defamation against Islam—and they would, with the attendant rioting, murders, etc.—then by the same standard it must be admitted that the Koran defames Christians and Christianity.

What if Christian books or Western movies declared that the sacred things of Islam—say the Black Stone in Mecca’s Ka’ba—are “idolatry” and that Muhammad himself will return and destroy them? If Muslims would consider that defamation against Islam—and they would, with all the attendant rioting, murders, etc.—then by the same standard it must be admitted that Islamic teaching defames the Christian Cross.

» How Political Correctness Improved My Life

In the early 1990s, some of my less-combative conservative friends were intimidated (or annoyed) into silence. They just didn’t want to deal with the nonsense, and they didn’t want to deal with the backlash. So they kept quiet, kept their heads down, and left school with their conservatism more or less intact. But after speaking to thousands of contemporary conservatives on dozens of campuses across the nation, it seems to me that political correctness has lost even that modest power over the right. We’re over it. We don’t care.

Our nation is increasingly polarized, and PC bears significant blame. There exists a great mass of conservatives who are now utterly immune to the stigma and name-calling, a vocal mass of radicals who tolerate no dissent, and a shrinking apathetic middle that is subject to intimidation but also annoyed by ideological hectoring. There are still thoughtful liberals and conservatives who hash out differences with reason and respect, but I fear the space for that dialogue is shrinking. PC doesn’t so much liberalize our nation as divide it, and the divisions will only widen the louder and angrier the forces of political correctness become.

Check! Mission accomplished! Done and done! Officially off our bucket list. OK, guys, your turn. When do you start standing up to the president? Hello? Hell-oooo?
