Jade Helm 15 is set to kick off in seven states this summer, sending Special Operations forces from all four main branches of the military onto civilian soil to conduct hostile take-over training – and civil-rights advocates are sounding the alarms.
This is how the military describes it:
“The nature of warfare is always changing and U.S. Army Special Operations Command’s mission is to make certain the Army’s various Special Operations Forces are trained, equipped and organized to successfully Read more [...]
This week many around the world will observe “Earth Day.” What started out 45 years ago as the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson from Wisconsin in an attempt to create a “new wave” of environmental activism, has morphed into a new form of religion. Nelson was a Democrat who also believed that population control was paramount to the survival of the planet. This is actually a very common theme among the most vocal global warming advocates from Ted Turner to Bill Gates. Here is Ted Turner Read more [...]
I reported on a story that occurred in Arlington Heights, Illinois, in which police showed up at 72-year-old Arthur Lovi's home and confiscated several antique guns following a visit he made to a therapist. All of this was done in violation of the Fourth Amendment. Nearly three years after the incident, a jury has sided with Lovi and awarded him $80,000.
The Daily Herald reports:
Two Arlington Heights police officers have been found guilty of constitutional violations and ordered by a federal Read more [...]
In spite of the national media’s efforts to scare Americans into accepting more gun control by sensationalizing mass homicides like Sandy Hook and white-on-black violence, there’s been a marked increase in support for gun ownership and concealed carry. According to the Daily Caller:
A survey conducted by John Lott’s Crime Prevention Research Center shows a profoundly favorable view of concealed carry as a tool for a safer society.
When asked, “In the United States, are guns used in Read more [...]
Court ruled a veteran robbed of over sixty thousand dollars by Nebraska State Troopers and the DEA had no right to object to the robbery.
No matter what Eric Holder promised, civil forfeiture is still going strong. According to the Institute of Justice’s Mark Brewer, writing at Forbes.com, a recent decision by the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has made sure that such open thievery will continue in many Midwestern states.
We just need to face up to the fact that the Feds expect and want Read more [...]
A group of congressional Democrats introduced a resolution on Tuesday seeking to ensure that students who attend public colleges and universities can graduate without debt.
The Senate resolution was introduced by Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), while Reps. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Katherine Clark (D-Mass.) introduced the House version.

Yesterday, I reported on the fact that more people have been crossing the US/Mexico border illegally since October, including over 12,000 children 17 and under. Additionally, more than 30,000 illegals have been released into the US population rather than being sent back to their homes in various Central American countries. Now Judicial Watch has released documents which indicate that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released 165,900 illegal aliens as of April 26, 2014, all who were convicted Read more [...]
Oregon’s disgraced Gov. John Kitzhaber may have stepped down, but that doesn’t mean members of his staff bid their jobs adieu. Margi Hoffmann, the former energy policy adviser to Kitzhaber, retained her position in current Gov. Kate Brown’s administration. That fact is particularly relevant given new emails recently uncovered by the Oregonian that reveal the reality of Kitzhaber administration’s “green” energy policies being considered by Oregon’s Democrat-controlled Legislature this Read more [...]
At least that argument for why Hillary should be President isn’t based on fiction (just bad argumentation).
This sounds vaguely like last time when people wanted to vote for an inexperienced man all because he was half-black. Who cares about his policies, or his few votes as Senator, or his ideology, or the fact that he hadn’t really done anything. What was important was that he was black. And he danced on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Anyone who didn’t vote for him was labeled a racist. Read more [...]
A couple of years ago it was reported that Turkey was helping fund the building of a $100 million dollar mega mosque in Lanham, Maryland. In fact Erdogan visited the mosque when he was here in May of 2013, promising to come back for the opening.
Well that time has apparently arrived and now Erdogan and Obama will be together at the mosque for the big opening ceremony:
ANADOLU AGENCY – The presidents of Turkey and the U.S. will open the Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center in Maryland, Read more [...]
A guide for jihadists in the West issued by ISIS late last month urges followers to train with Nerf guns and watch Bourne films as part of their under-the-radar preparation for terrorist attacks.
“Many Muslims are putting alot of effort into showing the world that we are peaceful citizens, we’re spending thousands of Euros to do Da’wah (invitation to Islam) campaigns to show how good we are in society, but we’re miserably failing. The leaders of disbelief repeatedly lie in the media and Read more [...]
In a valiant display of patriotism, Michelle Manhart picked up an American flag that was being trampled on by a bunch of young university punks. Keep in mind that this had been going on for three days at Valdosta State University. When Michelle stood up and did what the campus and no one else was willing to do, she resisted turning the flag over to police and stood her ground, guarding the flag until she was overpowered by police and arrested.
Michelle told what happened in her Facebook post, Read more [...]
