A Sick Brain and a Great Naval Disaster

It was June 27, 1942, during World War II and Russia was in desperate need of tanks, planes, ammunition, food and other war necessities. The Soviet army was involved in a fearsome battle against Hitler’s panzer divisions that were advancing deeper and deeper into Russian territory and winning on all fronts. It appeared that without supplies the future course of World War II in the east was in doubt. And no one knew that a dreadful naval decision was about to be made to further the conquests of Nazi Germany.

Total Collapse Cannot Happen in America!

“Total collapse can’t happen in America because I don’t want it to. Plus, it has never happened before so it can’t happen. I feel warm and fuzzy about our future.” That is called, the “normalcy bias” and will end up killing many Americans when financial depression and inflation take control.

President Obama Needs to ACT NOW to Prevent Mass Starvation in the Nuba Mountains

For nine long months now, the Government of Sudan (GoS) has laid siege to the Nuba Mountains. Irate at being challenged by the people of the Nuba Mountains over what the people perceived as a rigged election that eventuated in Ahmed Haroun becoming the Governor of South Kordofan and their aversion to the GoS’ goal of Islamacizing the region, Sudanese President Omar al Bashir began an aerial and ground campaign last July. Yes, that is the same Ahmed Haroun who is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on charges of crimes against humanity and war crimes for atrocities perpetrated in Darfur. And, the very same Omar al Bashir who is also wanted by the ICC on charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes allegedly perpetrated in Darfur.

The Liar’s Tax

The most singular aspect of Obamacare is the way Democrats, from the President on down, consistently lied about the fact that it was a tax. Interviewed by George Stephanopolos on ABC News, September 2009, Obama was asked if he rejected the criticism that it was a tax increase. “I absolutely reject that notion,” was his reply.

The Roberts Jizya and the Art of War

Perhaps history’s greatest military strategist is Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese general and tactician. Tzu made the following observation:

“Though we have heard of stupid haste in war, cleverness has never been seen associated with long delays.”

A leap toward Socialism

I am angry. Angry and sad and disillusioned. Our President, the leader of our great country, appears to have no problem with deceiving us in order to get his way. How many Americans, both in and out of congress, stood in support of the Healthcare bill because he promised that it was not a tax and did not increase taxes? And do those people feel duped? If not, they should. They were lied to. Plain and simple, the President lied to get his way.

Everyday People and the American Revolution

We elevate the events of the American Revolution to near-mythical status all too often and forget that the real revolutionaries were people just like you and me. Caught up in the drama of Red Coats marching, muskets exploding and flags waving in the night, we lose sight of the enduring significance of the Revolution and what makes it relevant to our world today. Those revolutionaries, by and large, were neither agitators nor hotheads. They were not looking for trouble or trying to start a fight. Like many today, they were simply trying to make it from one day to another, a task that was increasingly difficult as Britain’s rule became more and more oppressive.

Death of a Nation

Americans are about to learn why the 11 states of the Old Confederacy decided to leave the Union back in the 1860s.  State legislatures all across America, not just in the southern states, are about to feel the clinching mailed fist of the federal government.  Some are bound to balk and get their hackles up and, eventually, want out.

Conservation organizations denounce misrepresentation from the Wind Industry

The World Council for Nature (WCFN) and Save the Eagles International (STEI) object to misrepresentations spread by the wind industry, in particular those appearing in the CBC article of June 27th on the Campobello Project (1). It is indeed incorrect to say that some wind turbines cannot kill birds or bats because they move too slowly.

SAF, ANJRPC React to NJ Attorney General brief on gun case

Squandering an opportunity to redeem the Garden State for its long disparagement of the Second Amendment - and in particular, the right to carry - New Jersey’s newly appointed Attorney General has instead slapped gun owners in the face in the latest set of papers in a federal lawsuit brought by ANJRPC and the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) to overturn New Jersey’s unconstitutional handgun carry laws.

Romney fails to face up to the issue of illegal immigration

When Ronald Reagan campaigned for the presidency, the American people knew where he stood on every issue.  They understood that Reagan had strong convictions, and that he was clearly and consistently enunciating the policies he would follow if elected.  Mitt Romney is no Ronald Reagan, but when it comes to addressing the problem of illegal immigration the American people deserve better than the candidate that the Governor has morphed into.

While We Were Sleeping

While the entire country was riveted to the news that Obamacare—the most expensive and freedom robbing tax bill in U.S. history—was upheld by the Supreme Court, the President was busy driving in the last nail in the coffin of liberty.

It is not the first time the media helped in the deception of Americans and in hiding the truth.

The Pelican Brief with a twist

I’m about to take you on a brief but uncomfortable journey into the land of tin foil hat wearing conspiracies. I’m not going to ask you to believe it, just consider it. Think about it. Think outside the box, and as you do, consider all that has taken place over the last few decades, with particular emphasis on the last five years.
