Man left with brain damage after ‘being attacked by gang of 20 black men’

“Waffle House isn’t safe fo’ no white people after Ferguson’”

Ralph Weems, IV

Ralph Weems IV

West Point man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after he and a friend were attacked by a group of around 20 people in a Huddle House parking lot, police said, potentially as retaliation for Michael Brown’s killing.

Ralph Weems IV, who is white, was injured early Saturday but is now in fair condition at North Mississippi Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Genie Causey said.

A relative, Bradley Barnes of Madison, told The Associated Press by telephone on Sunday that his brother-in-law was in a medically induced coma following brain surgery.

Where the hell is the outrage now, Mr. Holder???

Alred: The governance of urban schools

White Mountains Lecture #12

Jewish-star-of-david2One of the reasons I have criticized Jewish management of our national politics and their control of the local media of big cities is that out of instinctive, historically determined fear they have made politics uninteresting. Politics stopped being tragic and comedic soon after the resignation of Richard Nixon. I would not be surprised if Jews manufactured he whole Oprah industry because Oprah is SAFE and PHONY, two things that erase anxiety for middle-class people and make them contented with boring, unexamined lives. Thus, the connection between moderate Clinton liberals and tolerance of illegal immigration from inferior cultures. Continue reading

Porous American Borders Too Tempting for Terrorists to Ignore

dvorak_2014A troubling storyline is developing along the U.S. southern border—more high-powered weaponry. Law enforcement agencies on America’s southern border have also confiscated a variety of military explosive devices– including sub-munitions.

Entering or exiting the United States, Juliette and Noe Ramirez were apprehended at the Texas/Mexico border on August 2, 2014 carrying sub-munitions, more commonly known as bomblets used in cluster bombs. “Juliette Ramirez was detained late Saturday night near the toll booth plaza north of the Del Rio International Bridge after a small explosive device was found hidden in a backpack,” the Del Rio News Herald reported.

Caruba: Freedom OF Religion, Not Freedom FROM Religion

freedom-religion_webThe Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution do not abandon religion, they embrace it. They do not, however, require that Americans believe in God, nor punish them for failing to do so.

Central to the liberties enshrined in these documents is the belief that they come from a higher power and America exists because of that belief. Without it there would have been no America. There are those among us who insist that, as a nation, we abandon faith in God and, if we do, America will cease to be a power for good in the world. Continue reading

Smith: In the Name of Humanity

obama_of-arabiaThe Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, under the command of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is evil incarnate, and, more than a threat to Christians and America, it represents a new global threat, which was a foreseeable consequence of arming the “rebels”, Al Qaeda, in Syria. Having burst forth as a product of the Syrian civil war and the U.S. premature withdrawal from Iraq on Obama’s orders, ISIS now seeks to expand the area it already controls, approximately an area the size of Great Britain, through violence and terror, beheading all unlike them – liberal Muslims, Christians, and Yazidis – raping the women and murdering entire families; they are destroying all who do not accept their vision of an Islamic state, their declared Caliphate, as they give them the ultimatum of “convert or die.” And now, this genocide of historic proportions demands that the U.S. and the free world exterminate the dire threat from ISIS through all the military might they can muster.

Obama, ever sympathetic to Sunni Muslims, more than likely illegally and surreptitiously armed the so-called “rebels” in Syria by late 2011 from Libya, as strong evidence suggests. Conclusive evidence from U.S. officials and Syrian figures reveals the CIA and U.S. Special Forces delivered weapons to the rebels, mostly Al Qaeda affiliates, around September 1, 2013, according to the Washington Post (9/11/13).

Hultberg: Why the Libertarian Party Fails

Nelson_HultbergMany in America’s freedom movement still hope that the Libertarian Party will one day become a power on the political scene to challenge the Democrat-Republican monolith. But in 42 years it hasn’t happened, and it probably won’t happen. There are some very distinct reasons why the LP and all other alternative / independent parties fail. This essay will examine them.

Let’s take, for example, the top independent parties out there: the Libertarian Party and the Constitution Party. Even though each of them have appeared at times to be a start toward genuine political reform, they repeatedly fail because they have structured themselves upon the mistake of instant idealism, which leads to their marginalization.

SARTRE: Forbidden History the Ultimate Taboo

Mayer_Amschel_Rothschild_NWOPeople are dumb because they do not know and refuse to learn the real history behind world events. Educational institutions do not function as seekers of truth, but as gatekeepers for narratives that defy common sense and defame historical facts. Society fosters the ultimate taboo against chronicles that differ with the established story of distortions and misdirection. Anyone who dares waver from accepted limits and suppositions immediately is a quack or an extremist. The dreaded label of being a conspiracy theorist, used to smear and marginalize researchers and pundits, is the height of anti-intellectualism and character assassination.

The dim-witted public, told to shun contradictory accounts, interpretations and disturbing explanations accepts sham history. The accurate course of events must remain hidden from the masses. The subject of a New World Order is not newfound. The process of world domination is as old as the formation of the first empire. Despite the annals of war and governments, the actual power that enslaves civilizations and humanity, is evil itself, in its purist form and manifestation. Continue reading

Out of the Mouths of Babes & Communists: Fundamentally Changing America…

b_mccutchen_foFrom an article in the Times Record, 8/11/14, “Immigrant-Rights Nonprofit learns from Arizona Organizations” we are told “Change agents with Arkansas United Community Coalition returned Sunday after a five-day trip to the heart of the border crisis in Arizona with ideas on how to inspire change in their communities. (Emphasis mine)

This is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s method for change (always meaning the destruction of Western values, e.g. liberty, private property, personal responsibility, rule of law, etc.) as outlined in his book “Rules for Radicals”.

Community organizing is the background of Barack Hussein Obama and radically changing what America used to be is the goal. It is obviously working since there is little recognizable that is left. Continue reading

The Dollar’s 70-year Dominance is Coming to an End!

Within a decade, greenback’s could be replaced as the world’s reserve currency

The dollar is currently boosted by being a reserve currency Photo: Reuters

In early July 1944, delegates from 44 countries gathered at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. A three-week summit took place, at which a new system was agreed to regulate the international monetary and financial order after the Second World War.

The US was already the world’s commercial powerhouse, having eclipsed the British Empire several decades earlier. America was also on course to be among the victors of “Europe’s conflict”, even though its economy was largely unscathed by war. As such, Bretton Woods was US-dominated and produced a settlement largely on US terms.

Seventy years ago, that fateful summit ended. Its close marked the moment the dollar’s unquestionable supremacy was secured. Since then, global commerce has been conducted largely in dollars and leading economies have held the greenback as their primary reserve currency. Continue reading

Baroud: Gaza Changed Everything

Things Cannot Stay the Same after Israeli Genocide in Gaza

Ramzy-BaroudAfter every bloody episode of violence perpetrated by Israel, media spin doctors are often deployed with one grand mission: to absolve Israel of any responsibility in their acts of carnage.

Not only do these apologists demonize Palestinians, but anyone who dares to take a stand on their behalf. The main staple of this Israeli strategy has been blaming the victim. Such a tactic is nothing new in the way the so-called “Arab-Israeli conflict” has been presented in Western media, whose narrative has been much closer to that of Israeli official and media discourses than that of Palestinians. This continued despite the decades-long military occupation, successive wars, and countless massacres. Continue reading

The Drake Equation and the Fraud of Climate Modeling

climate modelingOh no, not another global warming article? Yep! It’s true, but this one takes a little different tack to make a point about the folly of climate modeling. Hopefully, the reader will forgive this author’s brief foray into the world of simple mathematics and logic.

Back in the early 60′s when scientists started “dreaming” of how they could determine if there was life elsewhere in the universe, a radio astronomer by the name of Frank Drake came up with an equation (the infamous Drake Equation) to estimate the possibility of intelligent life on other extra solar planets in the Milky Way galaxy. He came up with the equation to help stimulate scientific dialogue at the up coming, first ever, Search For Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) conference in Green Bank, West Virginia.

Alred: The One Lesson of Fascism

White Mountains Lecture # 11: Engaging the New Working Class

Statue-of-Liberty-crying-628x356My final act of resistance to the community democracy approach to managing schools adopted by urban liberals in the Houston Independent School District was taking photographs of students mobbing the hallways of the school where I taught for sixteen years.

The photos surprised many people who read my blog, which for once received plenty of attention.

For years under that school’s administration, students had the freedom to spend class time in the hallways in spite of state and local regulations. I used that reality to suggest the larger problem: that adult professionals were not serious enough about educating minority kids. Continue reading

Hanson : Our ‘Face in the Crowd

obama_face_in_the_crowd_on_brick_wall_8-17-14-1Elia Kazan’s classic A Face in the Crowd is a good primer on Barack Obama’s rise and fall. Lonesome Rhodes arises out of nowhere in the 1957 film, romancing the nation as a phony populist who serially spins yarns in the most folksy ways — confident that he should never be held to account. Kazan’s point (in the film Rhodes is a patsy for conservative business interests) is that the “folks” are fickle and prefer to be charmed rather than informed and told the truth. Rhodes’s new first name, Lonesome, resonates in the film in a way that Barack does now. Finally, an open mic captures Rhodes’s true disdain for the people he champions, and his career crashes.

The Keystone Pipeline, Eminent Domain and Government Duplicity

keystoneThere is a great deal of confusion, mis-information, propaganda and outright lies flooding the Internet and the airways about the Keystone XL pipeline. Most people aren’t aware that three phases of the pipeline are already built and operating. It is the fourth phase that is creating all of the hot air and acrid smoke among the competing parties and the mostly uninformed public. There are many competing parties, most at odds with each other. Continue reading

Caruba: Genocide! A Christian Holocaust

Rome-Christians-and-wild-beasts-1wubuy7In the last century and now this one, I have lived long enough to have been alive when the Nazis killed six million European Jews and another five million other “enemies of the state” that included unionists, homosexuals, Seventh Day Adventists, and any others that ran afoul of that hateful and hate-filled regime.

There were genocides in the last and this century. The killing of Kurds by Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi dictator who used poison gas — a weapon of mass destruction—against them is largely forgotten by everyone but the Kurds. Continue reading

Removing the Liberal Happy Face from Urban Communities

White Mountains Lecture #9: Creating seriousness and mercy in the American playground

Jewish-star-of-david2This article suggests we do not have political models which can lead us to improvements in our urban public schools and we have to look outside our traditions for new ways of engaging working-class, minority communities.

I try to write less about public schools these days for several reasons. One, my own experience standing up to the ethnic bureaucrats and union officials ended badly, and the end was too painful and costly. Two, I am interested in the big picture: trends (such as the lack of immigration enforcement and the permissive philosophies taught in university education schools) which made success impossible for more than a small percentage of students each year. Three, it makes my own thinking small and increasingly that’s less interesting to me. Four, I cannot do anything practical about problem, and in my final year I was ready for experimenting and in spite of all the money flowing in the Houston Independent School District, there was not room for real change, there was only room for talk of change.

McCutchen: Citizen Taxpayers vs. Library tax or Property Rights vs. Forced Redistribution

b_mccutchen_foBackground: The concept of private individual property rights is a recent arrival in the timetables of human history, much less its official enactment in various degrees by governments around the world—specifically Western Civilization.

The concept finally caught fire in intellectual philosophers’ minds, mainly by the 16th century, to the extent that by the time our Founders were young pupils studying classical literature, languages & philosophies, the rarified ideas of individual rights were honored and struggling to be achieved in reality. The overwhelming significance was for the masses of people who had suffered nearly forever under the heavy hand of tyranny. Up until then it was unheard of that an individual had the right to keep the fruits of his labor and that no one had the right to take them by force of any means. Continue reading

Gaddy: Swearing an Oath to the Constitution and How It Works

“Tis not the many oaths that makes the truth, but the plain single vow that is vow’d true.” ~ William Shakespeare,  All’sWell That Ends Well

flaming_constitution_web_67Without a doubt, the most overlooked and abused object during an election season is the Oath of Office. When was the last time you heard the Oath to uphold and defend our Constitution and Bill of Rights mentioned in a political debate; on the evening news or by any of the so-called pundits in the media?

In today’s world, one must exhibit their ability to perform the job they have applied for, usually in the form of a test or examination; a driver’s license; a teaching certification; license to practice medicine; contractor’s license; POST certification; a concealed carry permit and many more. All these require a working knowledge of the job they have applied for or are being employed to do and some form of examination or test to demonstrate knowledge and application of the principals involved. Yet, for the literally hundreds of thousands of politicians, public officials, law enforcement personnel and government bureaucrats, there is no examination given on what is the most important and sometimes the only requirements of their jobs.

Smith: A Moral Distinction

Smith_washingtopnTo hear Obama, his administration and Secretary of State John Kerry say that they were “appalled” by the “disgraceful act” of the United Nations School in Gaza being bombed on August 3rd by Israeli Defense Forces, after the IDF warned residents in advance of this attack, shows Obama’s and Kerry’s willingness to distort and misrepresent the facts and the reality of the situation, as they exploit the peace process through their thinly veiled anti-Semitic positions, in a vile, dishonest and stupid manner. They are so anxious to achieve peace at any cost, that they make no moral distinction between Hamas and Israel, which, in and of itself, is unconscionable and shameful. Continue reading

Huntwork: H.A.M.A.S. (Hides Amongst Mosques And Schools), Self-Loathing Jews, And The Only Hope For Peace

Huntwork_OrionIn 2005 Gaza was unconditionally given to the Palestinians. They quickly handed it over to Hamas, made it a terror fortress, and smuggled in all the weapons of war that they could (which brought about a blockade). All efforts of peace since then have been met with “Massacre all the Jews!”

There is one very vital thing that must be said to all the Arabs of Palestine, as well as their supporters and defenders around the world. If you want to have peace and co-exist with Israel without war, violence, and death then stop voting in and supporting fundamentalists and extremists whose pastime is strapping bombs onto innocent women and children and launching rockets at Israel. And stop excusing such bloody actions when they occur. Leave Israel alone and you will soon have both peace and harmony with the Jew. If you are a peaceful Muslim then you must reject murder and terrorism in the name of Allah. If you are rational Westerner, you must do the same. It’s that simple. Continue reading

On Heroes and Preachers: Gaza’s New Resistance Paradigm

baroud bookWhere is the Palestinian Gandhi? In Israeli prison, of course!,” was the title of an article by Jo Ehrlich published in Modoweiss.net on Dec 21, 2009. That was almost exactly one year after Israel’s concluded a major war against Gaza. The so-called Operation Cast Lead (December 27, 2008 – January 18, 2009) was, till then, the deadliest Israeli attack against the impoverished strip for many years.

Ehrlich was not in the least being belittling by raising the question about the ‘Palestinian Gandhi’ but responding to the patronization of others. Right from the onset, he remarked: “Not that I’m in any way playing into the Palestinian Gandhi dialogue, I think it’s actually pretty diversionary/racist. But sometimes you have to laugh in order not to cry..Continue reading

Gaddy: “Delegata Potestas Non Potest Delegari

“A delegated power cannot itself be delegated” ~ Anglo-Saxon legal maxim.

gaddyHow did we get to this point in history; our country is hopelessly in debt and that debt is getting larger every day; more and more laws and regulations are passed, not to protect our rights, but to take them away; we spend more and more money on education, yet, our children are less and less prepared to make a living and most are driven by emotions instead of intellect; we are engaged in multiple wars against multiple inanimate objects (terror, poverty, drugs, crime etc.) requiring more and more money, but the enemies the wars are fought to eradicate continue to increase exponentially; the wars that are allegedly fought to secure our freedom requires more and more draconian laws that take our freedoms instead of protecting them; our country’s true history is forgotten or intentionally distorted to support a purely socialist agenda; we have thousands and thousands more “law enforcement” officers now than we had “peace officers” when I was young, yet, we have more laws, more crime and less peace.

Baroud: Recruiting to kill – it is not just an Israeli war on Gaza

Ramzy-BaroudTo some, US secretary of state John Kerry may have appeared to be a genuine peacemaker as he floated around ideas during a Cairo visit on 25 July about a ceasefire between Israel and resisting Palestinian fighters in Gaza. But behind his measured diplomatic language, there is a truth not even America’s top diplomat can easily hide. His country is very much involved in fighting this dirty war on Gaza that has killed over 1,050, injured thousands more, and destroyed much of an already poor, dilapidated space that is barely inhabitable to begin with.

US economic and military aid to Israel is measured annually in the billions, and the US government continues to be Israel’s strongest and most ardent ally and political benefactor. In fact, the US-Israel “special relationship” is getting more “special” by the day even though Israel is sinking further into the abyss of a well-deserved isolation. Continue reading

Smith: A Citizen Legislator/ or More Than a Republican

mr_smithLast week (of July 14th) State Representative Joe Carr (R) brought his bid for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Senator Lamar Alexander (R) to the national spotlight. On July 14th, nationally recognized radio and television political analyst, Laura Ingraham endorsed Joe Carr and backed her endorsement with a rousing rally for Carr on July 22nd, in front of approximately 600 people at the Millenium Maxwell Hotel in Nashville, TN. And the very next day, Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska, also offered her strong support and endorsement of Mr. Joe Carr. Continue reading

Alred: Something to get excited about?

White Mountains Lecture #8: The Failure of Reaganism and the need for a nationalist party with Protestant and Catholic approaches to self-presentation.

reagan_horsebackMy mother until her death remained perhaps the only post-presidential Jimmy Carter acolyte in this country besides President Carter’s remarkably attractive wife (have we ever had a sexier or more lovely first Lady?), and I could not share her enthusiasm.

My conservative roomates at Ole Miss convinced me of only one idea: “Carterism” was laughable. Carter’s presidency personified weakness. It had embarrassed the country. And the mention of his name wounded the spirit of any true patriot. When we went to the polls together, they voted for Reagan and I cast a protest vote for Anderson.

The following speaks to the manipulative power of national media marketing: the inwardly driven, contemplative, patient and stubborn Protestant Jimmy Carter cast as weak and vascillating and the half-assed dough-boy, policy chameleon Bill Clinton is sold to us as the greatest political artist of our generation. Continue reading

Gaddy: “Tax Farmers”

(Or how the government sponsored hate and hysteria directed at any substance or cause that is not approved and promoted by the government itself is the root of all evil and should be exterminated along with anyone foolish enough to use them.)

docile_taxpayer_01Author’s disclaimer: I am not now, nor have been, the user of drugs, legal or illegal, with the exception of Acetaminophen, over-the-counter allergy relief and the occasional ingestion of caffeine or an adult beverage.

Author’s note: I am also fully cognizant that I live in Bizarro World. Please take that into consideration as I cite as a recent example the claim by a proxy leader of a local group that claims fealty and allegiance to all things constitutional, that a candidate for Sheriff, recently vetted by that group, is “weak” on constitutional issues. This from the same man who recently publicly endorsed a candidate for that same office who has inundated this county with multiple lawsuits alleging repeated violations of the constitutional rights of local citizens and who knowingly hired and promoted a man who had been terminated in another state for violating the constitutional rights of citizens in that state, only to have him perpetrate these same unconstitutional acts on citizens here; So much for being “weak” on the Constitution.

Huntwork: Why Does Anyone Defend Hamas And The Palestinian Culture Of Death?

“Why in God’s name does anyone show sympathy, and support for a terrorist organization?” ~ Former Congressman Allen West

Hunt_01_0819And that is the question that should be asked. It boggles the mind and offends the senses that there is EVEN ONE MEMBER OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION who is upset that Israel is pummeling the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. Under Ariel Sharon, Israel forcibly removed its citizens from Gaza and turned the land over to the Arabs. Israel has been rewarded for that gesture of conciliation with the abduction and killing of its citizens and the launching of hundreds of rockets into its territory.

Such provocations have finally goaded the state of Israel into launching a ground invasion of Gaza to take on the infamous Hamas, a terrorist group famous for hiding behind women and children even as they target the same. Death and destruction is a deserving end to all those who purposefully target, kidnap, and murder young, innocent civilians. That’s the tragic event that triggered this latest round of the current conflict. May all those in Gaza who support such practices pay a very severe price for doing so. Continue reading
