The title of this category says it all. Of course, we could have called it “Watch on the Potomac” – but then we decided to develop a category for that subject anyway. In pre-war Germany – it was called “the Rhine.” Same difference – different time, different geographical region.
The assassination of police officers is becoming a daily occurrence in America – just like the sexual escapades of American High School teachers (mostly women) who accost impressionable (and hormonal charged) young students.
Evita Clinton: And the money kept rolling in from every side. Hillary’s pretty hands reached out and they reached wide.
Hillary Clinton is campaigning as a guardian of President Barack Obama’s progressive policy accomplishments. In recent weeks, she has called the Affordable Care Act “one of the greatest accomplishments of President Obama, of the Democratic Party, and of our country,” and promised that she is “going to defend Dodd-Frank” and “defend President Obama for taking on Wall Street.”
Meanwhile, however, Clinton’s campaign has been relying on a team of strategists and fundraisers, many of whom spent much of the last seven years as consultants or lobbyists for business interests working to obstruct Obama’s agenda in those two areas. Continue reading →
There was a brief time, back in the early days of social media, when I had both a Facebook and a Linked-In account. This was long before the revelations of Edward Snowden. This was long before I came to view the Internet as a technology that – more often that not – is highly detrimental to intelligence, attention span, human interaction, basic courtesy and common sense.

Why in the hell have Americans come to believe the government can order murder of people who have not in fact broken any valid law, let alone by government thugs that have committed I suspect millions of valid statutes meant to control them and prevent government tyranny.
Murder is murder and government sanction does not change this.
The issue over the idea of natural born citizen is being touted quite a bit leading up to the GOP debate this week and in its wake, too many people are confused and have not looked at what the Constitution says, nor have they taken the time to go back and see how the founders understood the term. They regurgitate what conservative talking heads and such spew out about Supreme Court rulings and cite laws that do not deal with the term natural born citizen. However, the elephant in the room (or the Constitution) that is never addressed is the differences of how there are the apparent differences of citizens in the Constitution itself. Continue reading →
I returned from Burns, Oregon last night discouraged and disappointed. Never let it be said that there was any premeditation or strategic planning for the events at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Watching the events unfold as they have, the only conclusion that can be reached is that the occupation of Malheur Headquarters – or the Harney County Resource Center may well be known in history as The Cowboy’s Last Stand. They have the media event down pat but the back half… the planning for the “now what do we do” is demonstrably lacking as the events are rolling along ad hoc. At yesterday’s press conference – which I found out about literally two seconds before I was ready to leave town, we hear that Stephen E. Grasty is preventing the occupiers from using any county facilities for holding a town hall meeting. Now that’s a surprise. Continue reading →
As most everybody knows by now, President Barack Obama is expected to issue unilateral executive actions on gun control within days, having been stymied repeatedly by a Congress unwilling to further infringe upon the Second Amendment.
Obama will most likely attempt to expand background checks on firearm purchases by reclassifying more individuals as “gun dealers” who must be licensed and regulated by the feds, as well as other actions that tinker around the edges and do nothing to actually address the alleged problem of “gun violence.” Continue reading →
You are now entering the Administration’s SPIN ZONE
The lesson from the last 20 years of immigration policy is that lawlessness breeds more lawlessness. Once a people or a government decides to normalize one form of lawbreaking, other forms of lawlessness will follow until finally the rule of law itself is in profound jeopardy. Today, we have a constitutional crisis on our hands. President Obama has decided that because Congress has not granted amnesty to millions of illegal aliens living in the U.S., he will do so himself. Let us ponder for a moment just how shameless this assertion of power is. Continue reading →
Did I get your attention? Did I offend you; make you mad? Good! It’s about time you know how I’ve been made to feel for quite some time. I don’t have enough fingers and toes to count the times I’ve been told I need to stop saying or writing the things I do because they are offensive; incendiary. I think I can safely say that I have studied the Constitution; the Bill of Rights; and the writings of the Founders much more than 90% of the rest of you, and I don’t recall anywhere in my reading did I find that you have a right to go through life not being offended.
However, the very first amendment to our Constitution protects the right of the people to speak freely. People still believe that they have freedom of speech; but do they … really? Or, have political correctness and a concern over hurting someone else’s feelings limited your right to say whatever you want? If you want my opinion, it seems Winston Churchill was right when he said, “Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people’s idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage.” Continue reading →

“That’s right. Together we can screw ’em all!”
In January 2014, during the scandalous aftermath of Edward Snowden’s NSA snooping revelations, one which revealed the US had been spying on its closest allies for years, Obama banned U.S. eavesdropping on leaders of close friends and allies and promised he would begin reining in the vast collection of Americans’ phone data in a series of limited reforms.
The fear in both the GOP and Democratic party is visible at the surface when it comes to Trump, and it’s not that he’s any of what they’ve accused him of. No, it’s really much simpler than that, and both Republican and Democrat parties, along with the mainstream media, are utterly terrified that you, the average American, is going to figure out what underlies all of these institutions in America.
No, it’s not that they’re evil.
It’s worse, for evil frequently is recognized and fought back yet for decades America has not awakened to what has been going on in the political and media establishment. It was evident during the Vietnam war and has only gotten worse since.
For those who don’t recall the Tet Offensive was an attack launched by the NVA and VietCong by some 70,000 troops in a coordinated series of attacks across more than 100 targets. It was an attempt to foment rebellion among the South’s population. Continue reading →
Lawmakers of the House’s Transportation Security Committee warned on Tuesday that “Commercial flights still major target for terrorism” and that dangerous “gaps in security” screenings could lead to a terrorist attack.
However, the director of TSA’s Office of Global Strategies, Joseph Terrell, offered few answers, leading to frustration and a contentious back and forth during the afternoon hearing.
These lawmakers grilled Terrell, seeking to determine how major security gaps at overseas airports could lead to an attack on the homeland. Continue reading →
Whether or not you support Trump the following is worth reading.
Someone finally had the nerve to publish what many folks are thinking …. but the author was cautious enough to avoid putting his name to his words.
They will kill him before they let him be president. It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump. Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident. Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few. It’s about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all and all for one. It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich — everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies. But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before.

We, the whites, are guilty of trying to evolve faster than humans of other races. We are guilty of building better, more functional, and more affluent societies than those other humans. Therefore, we must be punished sternly for those heinous crimes of ours. For it was our white privilege that gave us an unfair advantage in the genetic lottery of life. So, we have to give away, as a restitution to those races that we outpaced, all the wealth that we won in that unfair lottery.
Thanks to our benevolent ruling elites, we will not be allowed to make ourselves better off than the remainder of humanity any more. We are truly fortunate to be taught and transformed so that we can finally understand that our drive to improve ourselves, without consideration how the others may feel about that, was an aggravated case of deeply rooted racism.

From afar, they look like shadows, the men and women known as guardians of the border, thousands of agents whose job is to provide security for the United States, to protect Americans from those coming northbound from Mexico.
They ride past markers that dot the border, along the Rio Grande. The so-called monuments serve as reminders of where one country begins and another ends, all the while disregarding history, geography, and the people who see it for what it really is—a politically charged illusion forced on border residents by faraway governments, in Washington and Mexico City. This is a frontier shaped over centuries, by explorers who go back to the Spanish Conquista, and further back, before the Mayans and Aztecs, back before the lands divided. Now the region looks more like a demilitarized zone than the spot where two partner nations meet. Continue reading →

Along Highway 83, in South Texas, is a stretch of lonely land, a curving corridor dotted with abandoned villages and fast-food joints. One of the main arteries of the area known as Los Caminos del Río—the River Roads—cuts alongside the Rio Grande. The area is so isolated, and both sides look so similar, that at times one might have a hard time telling which is Mexico and which is the United States.
On the U.S. side is Laredo. Founded in 1755, Laredo once served as the capital of the rebellious Republic of the Rio Grande, a brief, and ultimately failed, attempt to secede from Mexico, launched, in 1840, by a coalition of insurgents from the states of Tamaulipas, Nuevo León, Coahuila, and southwest Texas in opposition to President Antonio López de Santa Anna’s centralist policies.

A U.S. judge on Monday ruled against the National Security Agency’s collection of Americans’ phone records that has outraged a growing number of citizens who say they never signed on to giving up their rights for the still inadequate national security. The NSA’s spy program had been scheduled end by the Nov. 30, 2015, but the federal court ruling is considered a legal precedent that may be used to prevent or halt another abuse of power by the Obama administration or a future occupant of the Oval Office.
Judge Richard Leon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia asserts that the current high-tech spy program “likely violates the Constitution” and said he believes “the loss of constitutional freedoms for even one day is a significant harm.” Continue reading →
The Left’s feminization of male culture in America is continuing unabated on campus after campus around the United States, with the most recent effort emanating from Vanderbilt University in Nashville.
The Media Research Center reports that the university’s Women’s Center is set to host a week-long event that will focus on lecturing men about a concept sponsors are calling “healthy masculinity,” whatever that is.
The lectures are part of “Healthy Masculinities Week”, in which the women’s center claims to be devoted to “Celebrating Women” while “Empowering All”. Continue reading →
~ Forward ~ President Obama and his UN, Big Green and Climate Crisis Industry allies insist that we need to “fix our climate” – because carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions are overheating the planet and causing “unprecedented” weather, sea level and drought disasters. There isn’t an iota of truth to any of these assertions. From my perspective, what we DO need to fix is the climate of fraud and corruption in the global warming and renewable fuels bureaucracy and industry … and their destructive policies that kill jobs, dreams, birds, bats and people. ~ Paul
We need to fix the climate of fraud, corruption, and policies that kill jobs, hope and people. Continue reading →
Kharron Nathan Green, 17, has been charged with inciting a riot and second-degree damage to property but would not tell police the names of others involved
If these damned people want to be treated with R-E-S-P-E-C-T – then they need to remember that “ALL Lives Matter” – and their parents better reign these little thugs in. They should start by getting their kids home, and whipping the hell out of them – THEN make them go out and do community service and pay reparations to their victims.
~ Foreword ~ Besides this beguiling inattention or distraction with all the hype about the confederate flag, which wholly fails to resolve at least some of the most fundamental problems of racism, consider on the other hand, the double trouble for this distraction to provide the opportunity to those who consider the confederate flag now viewed as offensive to their own rights of free expression or to display the flag privately as they see fit. ~ A.C.

As calls grow to remove the Confederate flag from public spaces across America’s South, Vanessa White says she questions whether that would mark real progress for black Americans like her.
The 57-year-old Compton, California construction worker has seen and endured too much, she says, to be excited. Over the years, five members of her family have been killed by guns: her two brothers, at the ages of 28 and 38; her nephew, at 19; her niece, at 16, and her niece’s mother, at 28. All of them had dropped out of school in their teens. Continue reading →
On June 25, 2015 I attempted to get an Edible image cake printed with the confederate flag image on it at Walmart. It was denied. The next day I had them do the same for the ISIS battle flag image I brought to them. They cheerfully did it. and sold me my ISIS cake. WTF Walmart! ISIS is beheading Christians, selling little girls into slavery, and is currently a terrorist org at war with the United States……..but you can’t buy the General Lee toy car at Wallmart? It’s a damn shame.

An activist in Columbia, S.C., removed the Confederate battle flag from its perch outside the State House building Saturday, before she was arrested and the flag replaced, the police said.
After the protester scaled the 30-foot flagpole, a Bureau of Protective Services officer arrested her and a man who had aided her.
Police identified the woman as Brittany Ann Byuarim Newsome, 30, of Raleigh, N.C., and the man as James Ian Tyson, 30, of Charlotte. They were charged with defacing a monument, the police said.
An officer on a routine patrol saw a woman climbing the flagpole early Saturday morning and asked that she get down. The woman, who was wearing climbing gear, refused, and unhooked the flag before descending, the authorities said. Continue reading →
Post suggesting atrocity could have been an ‘inside job’
Shaquille O’Neal’s two-meter plus frame means he has never been one for flying under the radar.
But the giant former basketball star has courted controversy after revealing he is a ‘9/11 truther’.
A recent post on his personal website has questioned the established version of the events of September 11, namely that the attacks were planned and carried out by Osama Bin Laden and al Qaeda operatives.
The post includes the slow-motion viral video of the second jet flying into the south tower on Sept. 11, 2001. Continue reading →
The New York Times says “predatory” subprime lenders robbed Baltimore’s black neighborhoods of wealth and thus heightened racial tensions. We thought we’d heard every excuse for looting, but this wins the prize.
In a recent editorial, the newspaper claims that racist banks “steered” Baltimore blacks into homes that they couldn’t afford and left their communities “strewn with abandoned houses,” fueling the city’s blight and crime problems. Continue reading →
