Why Eric Holder Could Be The Reason You Can’t Get A Job

... bunch thugketeers blatantly laughing funny obama holder federal prison
[Coming soon to a theater near you]

What separates a great nation from a banana republic?  The answer is simple; it’s the rule of law.  It is the notion that the leader of a country is not above the law but subject to it like everyone else.  If you travel to many seedy parts of the world, this concept is not the case.  The law of the land in these jurisdictions is whatever the dear leader says it is. No one in government is ever held accountable, unless you upset the dear leader.  This situation leads to corruption throughout all levels of society, from the policeman to the ministers and members of the legislature.  It reduces economic activity, entrepreneurship, and innovation.  This is why societies like China, Russia, and other dictatorial regimes do not have tsunamis of creatively destructive ideas as in the West.  They simply copy the innovations of other nations.  America is losing the rule of law and will suffer the political and economic consequences.  In fact, one could make the case that we are already feeling these consequences.

It doesn’t take much digging to find examples of our government flouting the rule of law.  We have an administration that will not enforce immigration law for political reasons.  We have the attorney general of these United States telling state attorneys’ general that they can ignore laws that have been passed by their legislatures.  We have a president who selectively enforces and changes law on a whim.  We have an attorney general who will not investigate voter intimidation, federal agencies that intimidate individual citizens and opposition groups, or anything that would bring discredit upon people and ideas he agrees with.  My friends, in America, we have corruption, pure and simple.
What is even more striking is the absence of a serious media outcry against this tyranny.  This is because the mainstream media is knee deep in corruption as well.  In the past, the media acted as a counterforce against a corrupt government.  Reporters sniffed out evidence of wrongdoing and exposed it as they believed that was good for the country.  This no longer is the case.

What is worse than a compliant media is the refusal of the opposition party to take legal and constitutional action against this corruption.  Refusal to act is the same as acquiescence.  The Republican Party, and Congress in general, has not stood up to this president.  He breaks the law at will and is not held accountable.

People wonder why our economy is suffering and unemployment is high.  People who voted for Obama wonder why they can’t find a job.  It is because in the absence of the rule of law, business hesitates.  They don’t hire or build new plants. They play it safe.  Taking risks in this environment can lead to disaster for a business as the dear leader can make or break you at will.  He is above the law.  It’s the same way in Russia.  Their economy suffers greatly from corruption.  Business cannot effectively operate unless you are a friend of the establishment.  America is headed in this direction.

America’s Environmental Shakedown

The Center for Biological Diversity is a Litigation Machine ...

From 2009-2012, Department of Justice data shows American taxpayers paid nearly $53 million in so-called environmental groups’ legal fees.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has asked for a six-month delay in making a final determination on whether to list the Gunnison sage grouse as an endangered species—moving the decision past the November elections. An E & E report states: Colorado elected leaders “fear the listing could have significant economic impacts.”
The report continues: “WildEarth Guardians is not opposing the latest extension after Fish and Wildlife agreed to some extensive new mitigation measures that will be made in the interim, including increasing buffer zones around sage grouse breeding grounds, called leks, and deferring coal, oil and gas leasing.” It goes on to say: “But the Center for Biological Diversity, which is a party to the settlement agreements with WildEarth Guardians, said the latest extension is a bad move for the grouse, which it says has needed ESA protections for years.”
Two important items should be noticed in the Gunnison sage grouse story. One, the power the environmental groups wield. Two, part of appeasing the environmental groups involves “deferring coal, oil, and gas leasing.”

It is widely known that these groups despise fossil fuels. The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) brags about its use of lawsuits to block development—but it is not just oil and gas they block; it is virtually all human activity.
In researching for this week’s column, I have talked to people from a variety of industry and conservation efforts. Whether I was talking to someone interested in protecting big horn sheep, a fishing enthusiast, a rancher, or an attorney representing ranching or extractive industries, CBD seems to be a thorn in everyone’s side. All made comments similar to what Amos Eno, who has been involved in conservation for more than forty years, told me: “CBD doesn’t care about the critters. They are creating a listing pipeline and then making money off of it.” Environmental writer Ted Williams called CBD “perennial plaintiffs.”

In an April 8, 2014 hearing before the House Committee on Natural Resources, Karen Budd-Falen, a fifth-generation rancher and an attorney specializing in environmental litigation, talked about the need for ESA reform: “Public information regarding payment of attorney’s fees for ESA litigation is equally difficult to access.” Addressing HR 4316—which requires a report on attorney’s fees and costs for ESA related litigation—she says: “It should not be a radical notion for the public to know how much is being paid by the federal government and to whom the check is written.”
As she reports in her testimony, Budd-Falen’s staff did an analysis of the 276-page spreadsheet run released by the Department of Justice (DOJ) listing litigation summaries in cases defended by the Environment and Natural Resources Division, Wildlife Section. Although the DOJ release itself contained no analysis, her legal staff did the calculations and found nearly $53 million of taxpayer money was paid out over an approximate three-year period. However, she then shows how her own Freedom of Information Act requests have proven “that the DOJ does not keep an accurate account of the cases it defends”—making the actual dollar figure much higher.

Despite numerous attempts, the ESA has not had any major revisions in more than 25 years. The Wall Street Journal states: “The ESA’s mixed record on wildlife restoration and its impact on business have made the law vulnerable to critics.” Groups like CBD have twisted the intent of the law. Reform is now essential—not just to save taxpayer dollars, but to put the focus back on actually saving the species.”

Who Is Jeb Bush’s Presidential Idol? The Answer Might Make You Sick

Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson ...
[ Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson ...]

As Jeb Bush continues positioning himself as the Republican establishment’s pick to run in the 2016 presidential election, he is increasingly alienating his party’s conservative base. In his latest outrageous proclamation, the former Florida governor explained that, if elected, he would rule in a style similar to Lyndon B. Johnson.
“He went and he cajoled, he begged, he threatened, he loved, he hugged, he did what leaders do, which is they personally get engaged to make something happen,” Bush said of Johnson’s approach to the legislature.
What he failed to mention, however, is what actually resulted from all of LBJ’s activism.
The Democrat, who presided over one of the nation’s most pronounced leftward lurches, established huge boondoggle programs, such as those included in his ‘Great Society’ and War on Poverty initiatives.

Johnson was also a master manipulator, often credited with establishing public policy meant to ensnare blacks in a cycle of dependence, ensuring they would be perpetually beholden to his party.
Aboard Air Force One, he reportedly told two governors that he would “have those n—gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
In another diatribe, he expressed disdain for “uppity” blacks.
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before – the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”

In what some might consider a similar position of racial pandering, Bush has frequently spoken out in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens.
In addition to asserting that their constant violation of our laws amounts to an “act of love,” this week he said conservative opposition to amnesty “makes no sense to me.”

Palin’s AR-15 Tweet Sends Leftists Into A Frenzy…

Sarah Palin, hot or not? ‘Hot,’ says Roger Ailes

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has grown accustomed to serving as a lightning rod for perpetually outraged leftists. Virtually anything she says or does is castigated by those who hate the fact that she embraces the conservative principles that led to America’s greatness.
Combining her already reviled status among left-wing radicals and an unabashed endorsement of gun ownership resulted in a renewed outpouring of hate among a number of social media users this week.
As a way to promote her new Sportsman Channel program, “Amazing American with Sarah Palin,” she posted an attention-grabbing tweet about the one rifle that seems to irritate gun-grabbers more than any other: the AR-15.

Sarah Palin         @SarahPalinUSA
Innovation found only in the USA! You know, an AR-15 makes a great gift – what more says, “I love you”? Eh, you... 

Tucson,Az Chiricahua park employee recalls near-deadly Illegal Alien attack

Entrance to Chiricahua National Monument
The Visitor Center has an audiovisual program, exhibits, a computer ...
[Visitor Center]

by Lupita Murillo 

TUCSON - A park employee left for dead at the Chiricahua National Monument nine months ago, speaks out about her attack.
Karen Gonzales, 60, was viciously beaten in broad daylight in one of the park restrooms.
She suffered a brain injury and is now walking with a limp. She tells News 4 Crime Trackers, "I will never forget his face coming at me."
Gonzales was cleaning the women's restroom at the Faraway Ranch Campground when she heard a noise, looked up, and saw her attacker come at her with a rock.
The DNA evidence left behind identified 33-year-old Gilbert Gaxiola as her attacker. The Cochise Country Sheriff's Department confirms Gaxiola is an undocumented immigrant.
According to Cochise Co. Sheriff's investigators, Gaxiola hit her so hard, it broke the rock.
The Sergeant told her, he not only hit her with a rock but he slammed her up against the metal door.
Evidence of the dent remains on the door. Gonzales says her hands are still recovering from the injuries. "Maybe some of it was fending off the blows, I don't know. But I know I hit him." She says she also chased after Gaxiola.
During the attack, she says she heard her husband Bob's voice. Bob had just died two weeks before. They'd been married 34 years.
She remembers him saying "Oh dude, that rock is not big enough. You don't know how tough this woman is. Oh yeah, you'll knock her out and that's just temporary then she's going to wake up she's going to realize who did this to her and then she's going beat the ?$#@ out of you."

Detectives say Gaxiola dragged her back into the restroom, and then stole her truck. He was seen in surveillance video going through the drive-thru of two fast food restaurants, and a going to WalMart. "He stole my truck to get back to Douglas and he was caught the very next day with a drug load."
Detectives say he abandoned the truck in Douglas. Border Patrol agents arrested him for drug smuggling the next day.
Besides the scenic rock formations of the Chiricahua National Monument, the hiking trails are also used by drug smugglers. In the peaks, drug cartels place lookouts to warn of Border Patrol activity. "I had a gut feeling when I was up at the bone yard that someone was watching me, and he was."
At the same time, Gonzales believes she had people watching out for her as well. "I believe that when this guy did this to me my late son was here my late husband was here and Silas Cochise."
Silas was the great grandson of Cochise, the chief of the Chiricahua Apaches. He was also a friend of hers. "It's pretty amazing I survived. It makes me think that there is something else I have to do with my life. I'm still around for a reason. "
One of those reasons, she was there to hold her mother's hand when she passed just a few weeks ago. But it hasn't been easy, she's had her struggles. She said her son told her one morning, "Mom, I just wish one day you'd wake up and be glad you are alive. I started crying and I said me too, me too. But now I am, so I made it, I made it."
Gilbert Gaxiola is charged with attempted first and second degree murder, armed robbery, three counts of aggravated assault kidnapping, and auto theft. He goes to trial this summer.
Gonzales continues to recuperate and credits the love from her friends and family for helping her through this ordeal.



Criminal illegal aliens released by the Obama administration between 2009 and 2011 went on to be charged with 19 murders, three attempted murders and 142 sex crimes, a House Judiciary Committee report previously documented.

A 2012 House report reviewed the effectiveness of the Secure Communities program, a project initially launched by the Bush administration to build databases that identify illegal aliens who qualify for deportation. The data covered arrests from October 2008 through July 2011.
The report analyzed data on 159,286 legal and illegal immigrants arrested by state or local police, including 7,283 illegal aliens who could have been deported but who were not taken into custody by ICE despite being identified as living in the country unlawfully.
The data shows that along with drunken-driving charges, the released illegals went on to commit 16,226 new crimes, including 19 murders, 142 sex offenses, 1,420 drug crimes, 682 cases of burglary or theft and 48 firearms charges.
On Monday, a Center for Immigration Studies report found that in 2013, ICE again released violent criminals, this time including murderers, rapists, kidnappers and drug dealers.
The offenders were among the 36,007 criminal illegal aliens released last year who committed 87,818 crimes, including 15,635 for driving while intoxicated. 

The statistics show ICE released illegals jailed for 9,187 dangerous drug infractions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 303 kidnapping convictions, 193 homicide convictions, 1,317 domestic violence convictions and 1,075 aggravated assault convictions.

Uh-Oh: What Federal Agency is Now Requesting Submachine Guns?

'We The Peoples'..original Homeland Security
Homeland Security
Obama's New Homeland Security goons want to reduce our 2nd Amendment rights to 1860's  old six shooters,double barrel shotguns,bolt action and lever action long guns...
All the while they increase their arsenal to high tech swat vehicles and machine guns...anyone else see the irony here? 



At a time when President Obama and his fellow Democrats continually voice their deep concern over the American populace having access to firearms, the federal government continues to arm themselves with an arsenal that ought to send shivers up the spine of any American who has educated themselves on the nature of government.
In 2008, then-presidential candidate uttered words that should have destroyed his campaign then and there: Sen. Obama claimed that we needed a domestic security force (think Brownshirts). 
“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” 
The spinmasters of the liberal media went into overdrive trying to protect the anointed candidate; they postured as if Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives merely took his statement out of context- as if that was possible with his clear explanation of his vision.
Why Sen. Obama was not thoroughly dismissed as a tyrant-in-waiting is a true testament to the power of the ideological media lapdogs.
It seems now-President Obama is accomplishing his goal. According to a document from the Federal Business Opportunity office, the Department of Agriculture has requested .40 S&W submachine guns with the so-called “high-capacity” magazines that remain so reviled by the lunatic left. 

The solicitation asks for “ambidextrous safety, semiautomatic or 2 round [bursts] trigger group, Tritium night sights front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore group) and scope (top rear), stock collapsible or folding,” and a “30 rd. capacity” magazine.
Sounds nice.
In April, TPNN reported on the massive amount of firepower being afforded to regulatory federal agencies:  

Just days ago, the U.S. Postal Service announced that they are looking for distributors to sell them assorted small arms ammunition. Last year, the Social Security Administration purchased 174,000 rounds of .357 jacketed hollow-point bullets. The Department of Agriculture requested 320,000 rounds and recently, the Department of Homeland Security requested 450 million rounds and the FBI requested 100 million rounds.
Even the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration got in on the action and requested 46,000 rounds. Why a weather service needs ammunition remains unclear.
Whether intentional or not, the byproduct of these ammo purchases means less ammunition on the shelves of stores, less ammunition in the hands of civilians and higher costs for those lucky enough to find ammunition. 
Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz , recently noted that the DHS is purchasing enough ammunition to allow for each person to use roughly 1,000 more rounds of ammo per person than the U.S. Army. “It is entirely … inexplicable why the Department of Homeland Security needs so much ammunition,” said Chaffetz.  

While it is not inherently sinister to arm law enforcement agents, when piecing together the various bits of information, it seems clear that President Obama has slowly assembled a loose confederation of paramilitary forces.
We have weathermen well-armed, the Post Office strapped and the Department of Agriculture requesting submachine guns in order to… well, do what, exactly?
When we combine these sobering facts with the president’s earlier stated desire to assemble a domestic security force, it is startling to say the least. When we similarly consider that this is happening at a time when the President crusades for civilian disarmament and regulatory agencies like the BLM are militantly overstepping their bounds, what remains is an obvious, toxic brew of federal militancy and a looming threat of tyranny. 

Progressive Heads Will Explode When They Read This


Last year, Rush Limbaugh released his first children’s book entitled “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans.” An instant best seller, the book was a phenomenal hit. It followed the travels through time of Rush Revere and his talking horse, Liberty, and teaches children American history.

When the Children’s Book Council nominated Rush for Author of the Year, the left was livid. There was even a campaign in an attempt to have Rush’s name removed from contention. The Children’s Book Council refused to bow down to pressure from leftist bullies. The group issued a letter stating that “ finalists are determined solely based on titles’ performances on the bestseller lists – all titles in those categories are listed as a result of this protocol.” They continued saying, “This program has never been about CBC or ECAR endorsing finalists. It has always been about CBC and ECAR endorsing young readers and giving them a choice and a voice on a national scale.”
Well, the children and teens have spoken. Rush Limbaugh was named the Author of the Year by the Children’s Book Council for his book that follows the journeys of Rush Revere and Liberty.

During his acceptance speech at the awards ceremony, Rush was the epitome of dignity, class, and humility. Noting that the late author Vince Flynn, a good friend of his, encouraged him to write, Rush said that he found his passion for writing a children’s history book due to his wife Katherine.
His love of America and desire to help kids learn the true history of this republic, not the revisionism that is far too frequently taught in our schools, is a breath of fresh air for many parents giving them a resource to turn to with their children.
Congratulations, Rush, on this outstanding award. 

"This is unexpected, but it’s a thrill. On behalf of Rush Revere and his talking horse, Liberty, time traveling, I want to thank all the children who voted and who’ve read the books and I have to tell you how they came about. 
The late Vince Flynn, noted thriller author, had been after me to write another book. I had written two previously, way back in the early ‘90s.
And it was one of those things, I said, “Vince, I’ve done that. I’m not really excited about doing it.” He kept pushing me and kept pushing me to do it. Finally, my wife Katherine said, “You know, you really care about history. You care about people learning American history, about kids learning American history. Why don’t you write some kids books? Why don’t you try that?”  

Now that lit my fire because I had never done that before. That was a new challenge. That was something to try and it was invigorating and it was something about which I am very, very passionate.
I love America. I wish everybody did. I hope everybody will. It’s one of the most fascinating stories of human history. This country and what it has meant to the world and what it means to citizens who live here. And it’s a delight and it’s an opportunity to try to share that story with young people so that they can grow and learn to love and appreciate the country in which they’re growing up and will some day run, and lead, and inherit.  

So, I want to thank everybody that’s made this possible. It genuinely is a thrill. This is a tremendous event. I’m so honored by this. I’m honored to be here among all of you and all of the other nominees for this and the other categories. It’s just a wonderful evening and I thank everybody who had anything to do, particularly the kids who voted in every category. It is a great project that you have going on here, children’s literacy and to expand it. And the organization and the work that you’re doing is just profound and I’m honored and humbled to be a small little part of it.
Thank you all very much. This is tremendous. "

Progressive heads must be spinning.

Allen West: Sam’s Kiss was ‘Brave?’ Villanueva has a Bronze Star – Now THAT’S Brave


While the mainstream media worked to promote Michael Sam not based on his athletic prowess, but his alternative lifestyle instead, they glossed over some truly newsworthy stories in their pursuit of pushing a liberal agenda.
For example: while the media gushed over the “brave” kiss Sam shared with his boyfriend on national television, they all-but ignored Alejandro Villanueva,  a former Army Ranger and combat vet who has won the Bronze Star and was drafted by the Eagles.
Former Congressman and Lt. Col. Allen West (ret.) had something to say about this fact:  

The NFL draft is over and there was much ado over former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and the first openly gay football player, Michael Sam. Of course, more media attention was given to Sam and “that kiss” when he learned he was drafted.
And astonishingly enough, comments about Sam’s kiss with his boyfriend drew some football players fines and a trip to adult timeout. Remember when NBA player, Jason Collins, came out as openly gay and the attention he received? Front page covers and a call from the president himself.
However, has anyone heard even a peep about Alejandro Villanueva? Well, he was picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles – a strapping fella at 6’9″ and most important, a graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point, and a former Army Ranger. 

The defensive lineman spent the past four years as an active member of the United States Army. The Eagles watched him perform at a regional combine in Detroit last month. He last played football in 2009 for Army as a wide receiver, converting to that position before his senior season. Villanueva served as the Black Knights’ offensive captain in 2009 and led the team in receptions (34), yards (522) and touchdowns (five). He began his career at Army as a reserve defensive lineman and transitioned to left tackle in 2008, starting all 12 games at that position as a junior. 

Villanueva graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point with a Bachelor of Science in systems engineering and was commissioned into the Army in May 2010 as a lieutenant in the infantry. During his first deployment to Afghanistan, Villanueva earned the Bronze Star Medal for valor for moving forward under enemy fire to pull wounded soldiers from an isolated position, according to the Eagles’ release. He later volunteered for the U.S. Army Rangers program and served two more tours in Afghanistan. 

Villanueva will bring to the Eagles a sense of duty and honor and a toughness that goes beyond just playing the game of football.
Alejandro represents the best America has to offer and I wish him great success in training camp. Hopefully, this young man will have a distinguished career just like that of another Service Academy graduate, David Robinson of the US Naval Academy, who had a stellar career in the NBA with the San Antonio Spurs and was affectionately nicknamed “The Admiral.”
Or perhaps that of famed Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Roger Staubach, also a Naval Academy graduate. Caleb Campbell of West Point, was the first Cadet to be drafted in the NFL IN 2008, 7th round, 218th overall pick. 

Alejandro’s story should be getting the headlines, not the Jay-Z elevator beatdown, which reflects that worst of our character.
Johnny Manziel may have a Heisman trophy and Michael Sam may be a novelty, but Alejandro Villanueva has a Bronze Star, and trust me, that’s something special.
The Philadelphia Eagles will soon learn what the motto, “Rangers Lead the Way” truly means. Hooah Ranger! Army Strong!

Too Bad Spineless Obama Can’t Vote “Present” In Face Of Radical Islam

Barack Obama’s spinelessness seems to have him caught in a pincher.
From his earliest days in public life, Barack Obama has done as little as possible. Whenever he has been presented with a choice, he will either worm out of the situation (as his disgraceful record of voting “present” shows) or completely ignore the matter at hand.
Obama’s spinelessness is most prominent in his refusal to confront the dangers posed by the savages masquerading as “The Religion of Peace.”
Faced with a demand to respond to Islamic terror attacks, Obama has hidden behind ridiculous, insulting language such as calling the Fort Hood murders “workplace violence” and ordering that the term “Muslim terror” not be used.

Now a bunch of savages called the Boko Haram, following the commands of Sharia Law to murder non-Islamists, has kidnapped some 300 Nigerian schoolgirls and is threatening to sell them into sex slavery or kill them.
During her tenure as Secretary of State, and doubtlessly on orders from Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton steadfastly refused to designate Boko Haram, a group that sees Sundays as “Murder Christians Day,” as a terrorist group.
The world sees Boko Haram as Islamic terrorists, but Barack Obama doesn’t recognize the existence of “Islamist terror” – he won’t even use the words. This presents a problem for a little man trying to portray himself as a “tough guy” who knows how to deal with terrorists.
Dealing with the Boko Haram will require more than saying how “awful” their kidnapping of the girls is and posting an embarrassing picture of Michelle Obama begging seventh century savages for civility on the internet.

This is one side of the pincher for Obama. The other is the awakening of Gay Hollywood to the savagery of Sharia Law’s commandments on homosexuality.
Last Monday, a group of Hollywood’s “fabulous” people turned out to picket in front of a hotel owned by the Sultan of Brunei because he has implemented Sharia Law in his country. Somehow, the truth of what Sharia Law really means has penetrated the liberal haze that hangs over Hollywood. Suddenly, all of the pretending that opposition to Sharia Law is something only “mean bigoted conservatives” do is gone. The reality is that even under a Republican government, being stoned to death for being gay doesn’t actually happen in America; but it most certainly does happen where Sharia is the law. At last, this has gotten through to Hollywood’s gay community; and they are taking action.
They’re not picketing a conservative radio station; they’re picketing a Muslim hotel. Suddenly enlightened, they have finally come to understand that supporting the “voting present” president could be dangerous.
“Voting present” won’t easily get Obama out of this bind now that his gay supporters are finally listening to the warnings about Sharia. They may very well succeed where we have failed. Gay Hollywood might be able to force Obama to do something about the threat from Sharia.

What Trey Gowdy Says At The End Of This Interview Should Shock Every American…

Jake Tapper of CNN’s “The Lead” had Rep. Trey Gowdy on to talk about the Benghazi investigation try to poke holes in any Benghazi investigation.
Tapper played video of the former deputy director of the CIA, Michael Morrell, testifying that the CIA did believe that the video could be involved.  He obviously thought that this negated any need for an investigation by Trey Gowdy and the special committee and proceeded to ask Gowdy to comment on the CIA director’s comments.
Trey Gowdy has a great response. But what he says at the end should shock every American. If its truly this bad, then this investigation is going to bring a lot of people down.

Sudanese woman sentenced to death for apostasy~Religion of Peace?


[Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir 
Radical Sharia Law Islamist ]

KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — A Muslim-by-birth Sudanese woman who married a Christian man was sentenced to death Thursday after she refused to recant her Christian faith, her lawyer said.
Meriam Ibrahim, whose father was Muslim but her mother was an Orthodox Christian from Ethiopia, was convicted of "apostasy" on Sunday and given four days to repent and escape death, lawyer Al-Shareef Ali al-Shareef Mohammed said.
The 26 year old, who is eight months pregnant, was sentenced after that grace period expired, Mohammed said.
The sentence drew immediate condemnation from Amnesty International, which called it "abhorrent." Mohammed called the conviction rushed and legally flawed since the judge refused to hear key defense witnesses, as well as ignored constitutional provisions on freedom of worship and equality among citizens. 

"The fact that a woman could be sentenced to death for her religious choice, and to flogging for being married to a man of an allegedly different religion, is abhorrent and should never be even considered," Amnesty said in a statement, quoting its Sudan researcher, Manar Idriss.
"It is flagrant breach of international human rights law," she said.
As in many Muslim nations, Muslim women in Sudan are prohibited from marrying non-Muslims, though Muslim men can marry outside their faith. By law, children must follow their father's religion.
Sudan introduced Islamic Shariah laws in the early 1980s, a move that contributed to the resumption of an insurgency in the mostly animist and Christian south of Sudan. An earlier round of civil war lasted 17 years and ended in 1972. The south seceded in 2011 to become the world's newest nation, South Sudan.
Sudanese President Omar Bashir, who seized power in a 1989 military coup, is an Islamist who says his country will implement Islam more strictly now that the non-Muslim south is gone.
There have been a number of cases over the years of Sudanese convicted of apostasy, but they all escaped the gallows by recanting their faith. Ibrahim is the first to be sentenced to death for apostasy, Mohammed and Idriss say. 

Mohammed said he intends to appeal Ibrahim's conviction.
"The judge has exceeded his mandate when he ruled that Meriam's marriage was void because her husband was out of her faith," Mohammed told The Associated Press. "He was thinking more of Islamic Shariah laws than of the country's laws and its constitution."
He said Ibrahim's Muslim father left her mother when she was a child and her mother raised her as a Christian.
The court in the capital, Khartoum, also ordered that Ibrahim be given 100 lashes for committing "zena" — an Arabic word for illegitimate sex — for having sexual relations with her husband, Daniel Wani, a Christian from southern Sudan who has U.S. citizenship, according to the lawyer and judicial officials who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.
Ibrahim's case first came to the attention of authorities in August, when members of her father's family complained that she was born a Muslim but married a Christian man.
They claimed that her birth name was "Afdal" and that she changed it to Meriam. Mohammed said the document produced by relatives to show she was given a Muslim name at birth was a fake. Ibrahim refused to answer Judge Abbas Khalifa when he called her "Afdal" during Thursday's hearing. Meriam is a common name for Muslims and Christians alike. 

"I was never a Muslim. I was raised a Christian from the start," she said.
Authorities last year charged her with "zena" and she was put on trial, but she remained free. She was first detained in a Khartoum jail in February and charged with apostasy after she declared in court that Christianity was the only religion she knew.
Ibrahim and Wani married in 2011 and have a son, 18-month-old Martin, who is with her in jail. The couple runs a farm south of Khartoum.

Sriracha Maker: Government In U.S. Reminds Me Of Communist Vietnam

Sriracha Maker: Government In U.S. Reminds Me Of Communist Vietnam
Sriracha, a cult-following-turned-mainstream hot sauce, recently came under attack by bureaucrats where the condiment is manufactured in Irwindale, Calif., after a handful of residents complained about a spicy smell from the factory. David Tran, whose company makes Sriracha, said that the government regulatory abuse has become so intense that he feels like he’s back in communist Vietnam, the nation he fled three decades ago to seek opportunity in the U.S.
At a recent Irwindale City Council meeting, Tran asked the local lawmakers, “Why do you hate me? Why do you want to shut me down?”
Last year, a local resident forced Tran to shut down a part of his Huy Fong factory. And a month ago, city officials moved to declare the entire operation a public nuisance.
The New York Times explains:

"To local residents, the problem with the Sriracha factory is one of overwhelming odors. When the factory is grinding chiles in the fall, the scent of red jalapeƱos — so sweet once bottled — blows through town like a malevolent wind. Residents say that the chile-laced air burns their eyes and noses, causes coughing fits, and forces them to take cover indoors.
But the prospect that officials may force the closing of Huy Fong Foods, which produces about 20 million bottles of the sauce each year, has taken people by surprise. The 650,000-square-foot factory employs about 70 full-time workers and around 200 during chile season, when up to 40 truckloads of fresh peppers arrive each day from Ventura County, north of Los Angeles. The chiles are ground that same day, part of a round-the-clock operation."

But Tran and many locals who talked to media outlets said that they have experienced no problems as a result of the hot sauce production.
“I work face to the chile for 34 years. Why am I still here?” 68-year-old Tran said in an interview. “Maybe I should have died already.”
A woman who lives just blocks from the factory told Vice: “I honestly don’t smell it. Everybody eats that chili sauce. You go to any Chinese restaurant or any restaurant around here — really, they have that stuff on the table. I’m 100 percent in favor of them staying here.”
City officials are showing no signs of backing down, which has prompted officials from at least 10 States and several municipalities to extend an invitation for Tran to bring jobs to their areas. Most recently, a group of Texas lawmakers paid the businessman a visit.
But while Tran said he is open to expansions in different areas, fully moving his Sriracha operation to a different area could prove difficult because he has grown alongside many of the vendors who supply his ingredients in the area.
“Other cities say, ‘Irwindale is not friendly, come to my city,’” he told The Times. “Other states say, ‘California is not friendly, come to my state.’ Other countries say, ‘U.S.A. is not friendly, come back here.’”
He added, “I’m not sure why the U.S.A. lets local government do stupid things like this.”
In a separate interview with NPR, the businessman noted, “Today, I feel almost the same [as when I left Vietnam]. Even now we live in the USA, but my feeling, the government, not a big difference.”

Hannity: I'm Moving to Florida With a Ranch in Texas

By Greg Richter
Sean Hannity says it's official: He's moving to Florida, and he will have a ranch in Texas.

Hannity first threatened to leave New York, the state where he was born and now resides, in January after Gov. Andrew Cuomo said conservatives have "no place" in his state. Since then, the Republican governors of both Texas and Florida have made pitches to Hannity to move to their states. Both have no state income tax.

Hannity listed his Long Island home for sale in February for $3.6 million, Newsday reported at the time.

Hannity hosts a prime-time television show on Fox News Channel and a nationally syndicated radio show, both based in New York.

But at the close of an interview Wednesday with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Hannity said,

"You're soon going to be my senator."

"Is that final?" Rubio asked, sounding surprised.

"I'm going to Florida, and I'm going to get a little Texas ranch," Hannity said. "I've decided I'm leaving New York when my kid graduates high school."

"Well, that's a great choice, then," Rubio responded. "We're glad to have you in Florida."

Hannity said he has "a little place in Naples," but will probably be getting a bigger one at the urging of his wife.

New Mexico County Defies Feds In Another Ranching Dispute

[Otero County Commission (Susan Flores, Ronny Rardin and Tommie Herrell ...]

[ John Bear—Daily NewsOtero County Cattleman’s Association President ...Otero County Commissioners instruct sheriff to unlock U.S. Forest ...gates]
The governing body of a rural county in southern New Mexico threw down the gauntlet against the Feds this week in another land use dispute, voting to defy the U.S. Forest Service by granting local ranchers access to a watering hole for cattle that the Forest Service had gated and declared off limits.
In a 2-0 vote, the Otero County commission agreed to authorize the county sheriff to open the disputed gate, clearing the way for approximately 200 cattle to venture into a 23-acre area the Forest Service had, for years, quarantined to protect a natural spring and the meadow jumping mouse, which inhabits the area.
“We are reacting to the infringement of the U.S. Forest Service on the water rights of our land-allotment owners,” Otero County Commissioner Tommie Herrell told the Reuters news service. “People have been grazing there since 1956.”
“The winds are blowing, we’re in a drought. Sacramento Mountains are dry. So whatever water source these animals can find, they have to be able to get to it,” fellow commissioner Susan Flores told KVIA news earlier this month.
A Forest Service supervisor told KVIA that both parties in the dispute had remained civil in their disagreement so far, assuaging present concerns that the land-rights battle will take on the acrimonious tenor of the Nevada dispute involving Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management.
“We all recognize that there are different ideas and value systems at play here,” Travis Moseley said, “and I respect that.”

This Group Is Marching On Washington To Remove Obama From Office

As Western Journalism previously reported, a protest planned for Friday is calling on like-minded patriots to unite in the nation’s capital to demand the ouster of a number of politicians.
Known as Operation American Spring, retired Army Col. Harry Riley explained that those involved will be “calling for the removal of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, and Eric Holder as a start toward constitutional restoration.”
Reportedly fashioned in the same mold as rallies like Occupy Wall Street, organizers are expecting as many as 30 million individuals to take part.
As a response to last month’s standoff between supporters of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and federal Bureau of Land Management officers, the same group has also announced a simultaneous demonstration near the Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville.  

Events planned by other groups in the past have failed to deliver the radical change sought, leading Riley to suggest a new approach is needed.
“For more than five years,” he said, “We the People have been writing, calling, faxing Congress, the media, screaming in town halls, marching, rallying, demonstrating, petitioning, all to no avail. Every branch of government looks at We the People, whom they have taken an oath to serve, as pests, interfering with their political agenda, cramping their self-serving, greedy agenda.”
He explained that the previous efforts have culminated in what he expects to be a major show of populist solidarity.
“Every political persuasion, rich, poor, every color, all ages, men, women , liberal, conservative, independent, unemployed, et al, are now mobilizing to participate in this peaceful, non-violent, cause in the search for constitutional restoration for America,” he concluded.

Of course, many involved expect some level of retaliation by the targets of their outrage. As OAS spokesperson Terry Trussell noted in a recent radio interview, he is concerned the Obama administration could launch a drone strike on protesters gathered in D.C.
Riley has reportedly already received death threats, resulting in an FBI complaint against a man calling for his execution on Facebook.

Pet cat saves boy from dog that was attacking him (UPDATED)

Surveillance video outside a home in Bakersfield, California shows that a young boy was riding his bicycle when a dog came around a parked car and started to attack him. As KERO ABC23 reports, he was saved by an unlikely hero – his pet cat, Tara. Before you watch the video, you should know there are images of the bite marks at the end that could be deemed disturbing by some viewers. 

Tara the cat raced over and pounced at the dog, before chasing it away. The boy’s mother, Erica Triantafilo, then raced over to her son. KGET 17 News reports that Ms. Triantafilo told them that the, “dog was still hanging around and she tried to chase it away and it bit her as well.” KERO says that her son had to get stitches, but that he will be fine and that the dog belongs to a neighbor and is now, “under observation.” 

Future Army helmets make for cooler soldiers, terrified enemies

It's hard to look at the US Army's latest helmet and not think of Halo, but the design does serve a purpose beyond gaming chic. Its latest "soldier of the future" concept would not only protect grunts in high heat and humidity, but also shield them from chemical and biological agents. While much bulkier tech already exists for that, such a model would use a fan embedded directly into the filtration system to suck air from the side of the mask and blast it across the nose. Tests done on an M50 gas mask modified with the tech proved it to be just as effective as with bigger units, but more comfortable for GI's during intense drills. The design is just a render for now, but if the army is going to look to video games for design inspiration, we think they should go bigger.

Pentagon Has a Plan to Stop the Zombie Apocalypse

oped: What can one say bout' this? oh well I will just go for "Resident Evil"...Apocalypse movie


Currently they are working on plans for when Unicorns try to make a return.

 The U.S. military has always been the one place in government with a plan, forever in preparation mode and ready to yank a blueprint off the shelf for almost any contingency. Need a response for a Russian nuclear missile launch? Check. Have to rescue a U.S. ambassador kidnapped by drug lords? Yup, check, got that covered. How about a detailed strategy for surviving a zombie apocalypse? As it turns out, check.
Incredibly, the Defense Department has a response if zombies attacked and the armed forces had to eradicate flesh-eating walkers in order to “preserve the sanctity of human life” among all the “non-zombie humans.”
Buried on the military’s secret computer network is an unclassified document, obtained by Foreign Policy, called “CONOP 8888.” It’s a zombie survival plan, a how-to guide for military planners trying to isolate the threat from a menu of the undead — from chicken zombies to vegetarian zombies and even “evil magic zombies” — and destroy them.

Mamma Grizzly is ready to strike...#SarahPalinUSA

sarah palin
Dear Patriot,

Mamma Grizzly is ready to strike -- our efforts to draft Sarah Palin for United States Senate are paying off.

Just last week, Sarah Palin called into a local Anchorage talk radio show -- showing signs of reemergence into state politics.

And it's all thanks to you,patriots

You see -- Sarah Palin knows we are with her in this race. She knows that if and when she declares her candidacy next month, she has the grassroots support of over 100,000 Americans and growing.

But that is not enough to win an election. We must strike before Mark Begich and national Democrats buy up all the Alaskan airwaves.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, DSCC, has committed $3.5 million in ad buys in Alaska alone next fall. Mark Begich and the DSCC are afraid what Sarah Palin's entrance could do to this race.

She will win the seat for conservatives.

Because Sarah Palin is a conservative, liberty-loving patriot -- Obama, Harry Reid, liberal Super PACs, and other 3rd party radical groups are waiting at the ready to launch attacks against her.

We are launching our first independent expenditure with a $10,000 media buy to make sure Sarah Palin has all the tools to take on the DSCC and Harry Reid's Senate Majority Super PAC.

Sarah Palin isn't afraid to confront Harry Reid when he attacks hard working Americans on the Senate floor, and now he's afraid she will take his job as Senate Majority Leader!

Under the leadership of Sarah Palin, we will restore personal liberties and reduce wasteful government spending in the Senate.

Liberal Democrat Senator Mark Begich is just another, party-line, left-wing vote for Harry Reid and Obama's radical agenda.

We have the opportunity not only to remove a guaranteed vote for Obama's agenda, but also remove Harry Reid's control of the United States Senate.

America is at a crossroads. We can either continue down the road paved by Democrats like Harry Reid, Obama, and Mark Begich, or we can enact Sarah Palin's vision for America -- a Mamma Grizzly that will fight for the safety our nation.

P.S. The DSCC, Mark Begich, and Harry Reid have showed their cards and they are ready to take on Sarah Palin in Alaska. They know what her candidacy could do -- it could win back the United States Senate for conservatives. The Tea Party Leadership Fund has launched a $10,000 independent expenditure to help our Mamma Grizzly.

P.S.S. Will you send $25 to add to our media buy and help fund our independent expenditures in Alaska to elect a Senator Sarah Palin?
