Underscoring what critics have been calling a resumption of the Cold War under the Obama Administration, a State Department fact sheet released Wednesday shows that for the first time, Russia has more deployed nuclear warheads than the United States does.
It's only one more -- 1,643 vs. our 1,642 -- but it's a drastic change from the days when U.S. nuclear might far exceeded that of the old Soviet Union.
Reductions in numbers of nuclear warheads are called for under the 2010 so-called New Strategic Read more [...]
Almost a year ago, I posted about Audrey Hudson who suffered a DHS SWAT raid. Hudson is a journalist and, though the stated reason for the raid was her husband’s firearms, the Homeland Security storm troopers snatched all her private notes.
It wasn’t until a month later that Hudson was informed that her confidential papers had been stolen (that’s the word that should be used; not merely “taken”!). Nothing about her notes or property was included in the warrant. They told her that they Read more [...]
The mayors’ faux compassion is obvious. Compassion requires resources and effort. When you don’t use your own resources, but those of other people, you are not compassionate. These mayors plan to use other peoples’ resources.
Thus, we read in the Latin Post, “Immigration News Today: US Mayors Agree to 'Support and Welcome' Refugee Central American Children.”
A dozen U.S. mayors have agreed to support immigrant children from Central America seeking refuge.
Welcoming America, a nonprofit Read more [...]
How are two glasses of wine related to public healthcare corruption and crony capitalism? While this instance of Big Pharma giving itself a gift through government mandates comes from the other side of the ocean, it gives us an idea of what we can expect from Obamacare.
Here is how the story begins in the Telegraph:
Hundreds of thousands of people drinking half a bottle of wine a night are to be put on the first ever drug to help reduce alcohol consumption, under plans announced by the National Read more [...]
Homosexual Hate Campaign Targets a Woman who Doesn’t Know Her Place
I missed this amazing and sickening piece when it came out—written by Janna Darnelle, a wife and mother whose marriage ended when her former husband left her for a man—or really a string of men (see below on the nature of their alleged “marriage”).
A couple of quotations:
Try as I might to save our marriage, there was no stopping my husband. Our divorce was not settled in mediation or with lawyers. No, it went Read more [...]
People may want a revolution but they are deceived; it already happened.
Do you remember that old Beatles song? In fact, they had an entire album by that name.
You say you want a revolution. Well, you know we all want to change the world.
You tell me that it's evolution. Well, you know we all want to change the world.
But when you talk about destruction, don't you know that you can count me out.
Don't you know it's gonna be all right?
They were wrong. It’s not gonna be “all Read more [...]
Assuming Liberals stop trying to frame homeschoolers for mass shootings and go back to trying to frame the Second Amendment, here is an interesting headline from Breithart.com: “FBI: More People Murdered with Fire Than in Mass Shootings.”
According to FBI crime statistics and the bureau's recent study on "active shooter" incidents (ACIs) in the US, far more people are murdered with fire than are killed in mass shootings.
On September 24, the FBI released their study on ACIs showing Read more [...]
I hope there is not a single government worker who wonders why citizens don't trust a word they say or write about Ebola risk or anything else. They treat us like little children—hiding the truth from us—but then they want us to blindly obey.
In regards to Ebola I am in no way panicked, but I call total balderdash on their patronizing reassurances that it's only transmitted "by direct-contact with bodily fluids." I'm sorry, isn't that what they told us about AIDS? Funny... I don't remember Read more [...]

So we have been bombing ISIS, or the Islamic state. What have we accomplished?
Not much. CNS News reports,
As of Tuesday, the U.S. and its coalition partners had conducted nearly 310 air attacks on Islamic terrorist targets, more than 230 in Iraq and 76 in Syria, a Pentagon spokesman said.
And while the air campaign has forced the terrorists to change their tactics, "We still believe ISIL remains a very potent force," Admiral John Kirby told reporters on Tuesday.
"Yes, they've changed some Read more [...]
You can watch part of the execution here:
Here is the “frame by frame” commentary by the District Attorney explaining why it was OK to kill a man on the spot for walking away from police.
Twenty-year-old Dillon Taylor was unarmed. He was never a threat to any of the police or anyone else.
According to the Free Thought Project:
On August 11, Taylor, his brother, and his cousin were exiting a 7-Eleven in an area where police were searching for a suspect who had allegedly been Read more [...]
In United States law, no one is supposed to go to prison without a trial. Supposedly, the only reason to hold people is if they are a “flight risk.” No one is supposed to be punished with prison time until and unless he is convicted in a court of law. No one is supposed to be forced to wait forever in abeyance; Americans are supposed to get a speedy trial.
But that is all fiction. It seems like an accused man in New York City (and probably elsewhere) has as many rights as a marine imprisoned Read more [...]
While all eyes are on the incompetence of the Secret Service, Pentagon waste, which has always been out of control, has produced yet another scandal. The Department of Defense has spent a fortune moving equipment it doesn’t need.
According to USA Today: “Tab for trucks Pentagon doesn't need could top $100M.”
The Army and Marine Corps may have wasted more than $100 million returning vehicles from Afghanistan that they don't need over just a one-year period, according to a Government Read more [...]
