IF you believe that the following historical story has nothing to do with America today – then you really do NOT get it! WAKE UP Christians – the enemy is within our gates! ~ Ed.
Armenian Christian civilians, escorted by armed Ottoman Muslim soldiers, are marched through Harput (known as Kharpert by Armenians, the kaza of the Mamuret-ul Aziz), to a prison in the nearby Mezireh (via Wikipedia)
April 24, marks the “Great Crime,” that is, the genocide of Christians – mostly Armenians but also Assyrians – that took place under the Islamic Ottoman Empire throughout World War I. Then, the Turks liquidated approximately 1.5 million Armenians and 300,000 Assyrians. Continue reading →
The moment of truth, the place where the rubber meets the road, is not that far off in the Old Dominion.
An article on Breitbart for January 7th by AWR Hawkins tells us that: “Virginia gun owners are making clear their plans for noncompliance as Democrats prepare to take control of the legislature and Gov. Ralph Northam promises a war on guns. On January 7th, Breitbart news reported 118 of Virginia’s local governments have declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status since the November 5, 2019 elections gave Democrats enough seats to control the state legislature. From those elections till now, cities, counties and municipalities in the state have proclaimed their plans to refuse enforcement of any new gun controls which the incoming majority might pass.” Continue reading →
Socialists have murdered well more than 100,000,000 innocent folks in the past 102 years. This same form of socialism is alive and well in American politics.
Seventy-five years ago, our greatest generation stormed the beaches of Normandy to pound the fetid bile out of socialism.
The Stupidest Generation has been honoring that sacrifice with a politically, historically, and philosophically lazy narcissism. Conspicuous consumption became the surrogate for liberty and personal responsibility. We’ve shown our respect by allowing our constitutional republic to slip perilously close to the rocky cliffs of socialism. Continue reading →
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” ~ Patrick Henry, speaking to the legislative body of the Virginia colony
Dear readers, you may recall that I have mentioned Max Alexander, from time to time, recommending his books and the excellent training he provides for surviving hostile environments. Although his Velocity Training Center is in West Virginia, Max lives in Virginia, where he and all liberty-loving Virginians have found themselves facing a new liberal governor, Red Ralph, a Democrat state house of representatives, and Democrat state senate, which are clearly hell bent on destroying the Bill of Rights, especially the Second Amendment, and criminalizing our natural right to defend our life, liberty, and property.

I’m sending the following to Colt, Smith & Wesson, and Sturm Ruger. One letter isn’t going to affect their corporate policy, so I would hope that this gets sent to them by hundreds of thousands of angry gun owners; maybe then they will listen. At the end, should you choose to do this, I have included their mailing addresses. ~ Neal Ross
To Whom It May Concern:
I am, not only a customer who has either purchased, or shot the products you manufacture, I am also part of what you might call the gun culture of America; an individual who was raised around guns, taught proper safe handling skills, and learned how to shoot at a very early age. Firearms are as much a part of my life as my fingers and toes, or the knives and forks I use to eat my meals, and I am distressed at what is, and what has been happening to my right to keep and bear them.

Seeking out the most efficient and most secure route to owning gold or silver, and converting it into widely-accepted currency, is the next best thing to enjoying gold-backed currency. In a world of central bankers hell-bent on devaluing your savings you need your own private gold standard. Continue reading →
Now hiring signs everywhere. My feelings get hurt because of your free speech, ban all guns, legalize drugs, single parenthood is cool. I deserve free everything.
Class of 1970. Boeing lays off 70,000 in Puget Sound, Gas doubled to 50 cents, no jobs, and your headed to Viet Nam.
The 1970s were a time of turmoil in the United States, beginning with the civil rights movement which set the standards for practices by the anti-war movement. The 1969 draft lottery only encouraged resentment of the Vietnam War and the draft. Continue reading →
Do people think that the 2nd Amendment established our right to keep and bear arms? The 2nd Amendment, along with the 9 other amendments comprising the Bill of Rights, was ratified in 1791. Therefore, where did the Colonists get the right to bear arms against Great Britain in 1776? Continue reading →
Rolling into 2020, all eyes are on Virginia following Governor Ralph Northam’s declared intention to pass onerous new gun control laws that could mandate the forced confiscation of common semi-automatic firearms which have been legal for Virginians to own for more than a century, ever since their invention. The first date in the coming showdown to be aware of is Monday, January 20th, when the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a pro-Second Amendment group, is organizing a “Lobby Day” rally to be held at the state capitol to oppose these new gun control laws. It’s estimated that thousands of Virginians will attend the VCDL rally, many arriving in buses from all over the commonwealth. Continue reading →
Nearly seven weeks old, but the battle is heating up around the country…
COLUMBIA, S.C. – A bill prefiled in the South Carolina House would take a step toward creating a “gun rights sanctuary state”by banning state and local enforcement of any future federal gun control. Passage into law would represent an important foundational step toward undermining federal acts that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms within the state.
Rep. Stewart Jones (R-Laurens) filed House Bill 4704 (H.4704) on Nov. 20. Titled the “Second Amendment Preservation Act,” the legislation would ban the allocation of public funds, personnel, or property for the implementation, regulation, or enforcement of any executive orders, presidential directives or acts of the United States Congress passed after January 1, 2020, that regulate the ownership, use, or possession of firearms, ammunition, or firearm accessories.

War is a fearsome thing and nobody understands that better than men who have heard the whine of a bullet pass by their ear, but given man’s nature, it is all to often a reality. America does have valid concerns in the Middle East, with the primary one being the unimpeded flow of commerce through the Straits of Hormuz. All others are beginning to take a back seat, as the U.S. becomes increasingly energy independent and is making a gradually withdrawal from Middle Eastern conflicts firing, not firing to enter more wars.
Whatever anyone thinks about America’s past military actions, this one was well delivered and righteous, unless the one analyzing it is a quivering, spineless coward, who still longs for Mommy’s teat. Continue reading →
Long before the “Shot Heard Round the World” at Lexington and Concord in April of 1775, the new world rose from about 2,000 inhabitants in 1620, to 250,000 by 1770 and 2.4 million by 1775. Most came from the many countries of Europe but some came from as far away as Russia. It has been said that the first American baby was born in Roanoke, VA way back in 1578, 42 years before the landing at Plymouth Rock. That first baby was allegedly named Virginia Dare.
They came for religious reasons (the Puritans), or they came for free land, or they came for commerce and trade. It was a hard life and they paid a huge price. Over half of the people that landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620 died in the first year due to the harsh winter. Continue reading →
I may piss a few of you off by posting this. We can handle it one of two ways: discuss it like adults or you can unfriend me. Your choice. You have your opinion and I have mine. Before anyone gets their panties in a wad, I add that my ancestors came here from other countries, as did most everyone else’s ancestors, and they learned the language and worked and never once did I hear any of them trash America. They became citizens, were proud to be one and some served in the military! I am nice to everyone and I have no problem with anyone coming here and making a good life for themselves and their family, BUT if you are coming here and expect us to become what you just came from, then that’s not happening! Return and work on your country and make it better where you can be proud to live in it. Continue reading →
Here I sit, music playin’ low on the computer, grand-daughters runnin’ around (“Whatcha doin’, Paw-Paw?”), tryin’ to decide what to write about (“Kin I see, Paw-Paw?”), thinkin’ about how blessed I am (“Lookit how high I kin bounce on yore bed, Paw-Paw!”) and thinkin’ about (“Dat durn cat scratched me, Paw-Paw.) shootin’ that damn cat. I’ve got several possible topics bouncin’ around in my gourd; some I wanna write about, some I think I need to write about, but not able to focus on any one in particular. It ain’t writer’s block, it’s the fact that I can’t quit comin’ back to the current political situation in Virginia; somethin’ I really want to not write about, but which it’s beginnin’ to look like I’m gonna hafta, so here goes… Continue reading →
We end the decade and begin the new with the continuation of Al Benson Jr’s powerful multi-part series dealing with the growing fight across the nation dealing with 2nd Amendment Sanctuaries. The people are fed up with the childish crap going on in the land and are refusing to go-along to get-along nonsense – all the while – the lack of ability of lawmakers (both State AND Federal), local law-enforcement personnel AND the Snowflakes of this country – refuse to acknowledge the REAL issues – nor do what is right. Sorry folks, but guns do not kill people – PEOPLE kill people. OOPS – better grab the knives – the enemy has been let in the door.
We expect that Mr. Benson will continue to update this series, so stay with us. ~ Jeffrey Bennett, Editor and Publisher.
The Sleeping Giant: Back to Virginia ~ Part VIII
Governor threatens to enforce gun control laws but not certain others…
The new leftist governor of Virginia plans to rigidly enforce new gun control proposals but there seem to be other laws in Virginia that he will just look the other way in regard to. You might consider this hypocrisy but you have to remember this new governor is a cultural Marxist and so his agenda is to enforce laws that will contribute to the spread of Marxist tendencies in Virginia and sort of ignore some of those laws that will not. To normal folks this constitutes hypocrisy but to the cultural Marxist it makes perfect sense. Learn to understand how they think. Continue reading →
Civil war becomes likelier with every passing day.
With the failure of the doddering Mueller’s Democrat-inspired coup attempt, the disaster of Schiff’s impeachment hoax, and Nadler’s … hearing comprised of angry leftist academics, the country has learned a valuable lesson; the Democrats will never accept Trump as the duly elected president — no matter how much of a landslide he wins by in 2020. And as Michael Walsh has pointed out. “They never stop, they never sleep, they never quit.” Continue reading →
San Francisco residents reported more than 30,000 cases of poop to authorities in 2019, city records show.
As of Monday afternoon, the city’s Department of Public Works responded to 30,136 cases of “human or animal waste” this year, easily topping the 28,353 cases the agency handled in 2018 with a week still to go, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of publicly available city records. The liberal city is averaging more than 84 poop reports every day, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s analysis found. Continue reading →
“In an ever-changing, incomprehensible world the masses had reached the point where they would, at the same time, believe everything and nothing, think that everything was possible and that nothing was true. The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists.” ~ Hannah Arendt
President Donald J. Trump has done some fine things in the domestic and foreign policy arenas, but even so, despite what the nearly 63 million Americans who voted for him believe, President Trump is not the best thing in America to have come along since sliced white-bread. Unfortunately, with each passing day, he has proven himself to be the Big Spending, Big Government fascist that I knew him to be in 2015. Regardless of his “good deeds”, any American, who stays silent in the face of this president’s current harmful executive orders and signed pieces of legislation, such as the recent Omnibus bill that he signed on December 20th 2019, is not a conservative or a patriot, and their silence does the nation a great disservice, no matter how “great” anyone may view Trump at this moment in history, and no matter Trump’s claim of the “conservative mantel”. Continue reading →
In the time-honored tradition of Machiavellian statecraft, all of the charges being leveled against Donald Trump to remove him from office – namely, ‘abuse of power’ and ‘obstruction of congress’ – are essentially the same things the Democratic Party has been guilty of for nearly half a decade:abusing their powers in a non-stop attack on the executive branch. Is the reason because they desperately need a ‘get out of jail free’ card?
Due to the non-stop action in Washington of late, few believe that the present state of affairs between the Democrats and Donald Trump are exclusively due to a telephone call between the US leader and the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. That is only scratching the surface of a story that is practically boundless. Continue reading →
