JUST IN: Andrew Benjamin @ WESTERN FREE PRESS
AN IMPERIOUS MORAL CODE
In Chapter Six "What Sort of Despotism Democratic Nations Have to Fear" of his 1835 book "Democracy in America," Alexis de Tocqueville warned us of the soft tyranny of excessive and intrusive government:
"After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd."
On the Need for a Political Insurgency
Any country ruled by a small group without broad, popular participation by its citizens provides a political basis for an insurgency. It is an axiom of unconventional warfare that insurgents succeed through chaos and disorder appearing anywhere. The regime fails unless it maintains a degree of order everywhere.
Army Field Manual 3-24 defines an insurgency as an organized, protracted politico-military struggle designed to weaken an occupying power. In our case the occupying power is the political ruling class which has perverted the Constitution, flouted the rule of law and undermined representative government.
Political chaos will inevitably increase as the extent of Obama's lies, fraud and failed policies become evident. Political insurgents can exploit the situation nationwide by identifying local targets of opportunity to disrupt, weaken and defeat the undemocratic activities of the two political parties and the mainstream media. The strategic end state of such a political insurgency is the restoration of the Constitution, the rule of law and genuine representative government.
We are sleeping on a volcano... A wind of revolution blows, the storm is on the horizon. - Alexis de Tocqueville

Gun poll: 7 in 10 feel safer in an armed neighborhoodAn overwhelming seven in 10 Americans say they would feel safer living in a neighborhood where individuals could own a gun for self defense, the latest indication that support for comprehensive gun control is fading. Rasmussen Reports found that 68 percent of voters polled would feel safer in an armed neighborhood. Just 23 percent said they'd feel safer in "a neighborhood where nobody was allowed to own a gun."
2013: Fewest police deaths involving firearms since 1887The number of law-enforcement officers killed by firearms in 2013 fell to levels not seen since the 19th century, according to a report released Monday.

IT DIDN'T TAKE A SEAL TEAM
Osama bin Laden's lawyer didn't live in a cave in Afghanistan. Like so many terrorist lawyers, he was a New Yorker. His law office, which has seen more terrorists and their files pass through it than an Afghan cave, sits above a Muslim 99 cent store that offers discounted napkins, sandals and toasters, and is a four-minute drive away from the World Trade Center.
"If I don't support the politics of political clients, I don't take the case," he once said. A few weeks after September 11, he said, "If Osama bin Laden arrived in the United States today and asked me to represent him, sure I'd represent him."
Osama bin Laden never did arrive in the United States, though perhaps one day pieces of him will wash up on a California beach, and his wannabe lawyer had to settle for representing his son-in-law, who, after September 11, had appeared in a video threatening that "the storm of planes will not stop."

CAN YOU SPOT THE DIFFERENCE? YOU CAN?
Eighty years ago, the Nazis dispatched thousands of SA thugs to enforce their boycott of Jewish businesses. Stars of David were painted on windows. Leaflets listing the crimes of the Jews were handed out. Cameras were set up outside stores to photograph anyone violating the Nazi BDS campaign.
Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda minister, called the boycott a "great moral victory." Modern BDS activists echo his rhetoric calling their attacks on Jewish businesses and academics a "moral victory".
The Muslim boycott of Jewish businesses in Israel began in the twenties and predated the Nazi boycott. It may have even helped to inspire it. This was followed by the Arab League boycott of Israel after the Holocaust. The modern BDS boycott is the direct successor of a Saudi policy under a progressive flag.

Yes Virginia, there is an Anthony Weiner romance novel. How does this timeless romance for the ages begin?
"Weiner was different. He wasn't afraid to charge in, make enemies and throw dirt across the aisle. I liked that in a man; and to be honest, I liked Weiner too with his delicate face and Mediterranean eyes. The more I read, the more my blue heart throbbed for him.
"I logged onto Facebook. I sent him a friend request."

PEACE OF THE UNJUST
Christians and Jews out-compete Muslims economically in every country. That's why the Muslim Brotherhood with its network of businesses wants to drive Coptic Christians out of Egypt.
The non-oil Muslim countries who are closest to Israel are Malaysia and Lebanon, 32 and 33 places behind Israel. Both countries also have sizable non-Muslim populations. Muslims make up only 50 percent of Lebanon and only 60 percent of Malaysia. No Muslim country without oil has a better GDP Per Capita than a Muslim country with sizable Christian or Buddhist minorities.
Now if you think rationally, this is a reason for Muslims to keep non-Muslims around. But if you think tribally, the only way that Muslims can get ahead is by getting rid of the non-Muslims.

That might be a bigger deal if Jesse Jackson didn't compare absolutely everything to the bus that Rosa Parks rode in on. Every time someone cuts in front of Jesse Jackson's limo on the way to a presidential dinner, he begins screaming about Rosa Parks and doesn't stop until he passes out.

When Muslims first hijacked the Indian game of Chaturanga, which became the Persian game of Shatranj, they destroyed all the chess pieces because they considered the figures to be blasphemous.
Chess as we know it had to be recreated in Europe once the dark shadow of Islam fell over the chessboard.

Huffington Post Still Losing Money
By 2007 George W. Bush had pacified Iraq and vanquished al Q'aeda. There was no significant al Q'aeda activity recorded for the year. By 2012 Barack Obama had unpacified Iraq by flushing down the toilet the investment the United States had spent (hundreds of billions) and today Iraq has the same level of violence it had in 2005 - it is in the midst of A CIVIL WAR with al Q'aeda more active then ever! Had the United States stayed in Iraq, today we'd certainly have better leverage in dealing with BOTH Iran and Syria...the last an Iranian client. But that's Barack for you - for his kind, every decision is a bad decision for American interests. PEACE! IF YOU CAN STAND IT.
THE I WORD
What it's really doing is clumsily duplicating the Predator setup, without actually giving them Predators, which is smart because anything you give Iraq, you also give Iran.
But clumsily outsourcing Predator strikes means that intelligence moves much more slowly and is more vulnerable to leaks on the other side. It also means that Al Qaeda and Iran both get a preview of our intelligence resources.
So it's a bad solution that's meant to keep Obama at arm's length from the I word.

SAVE THE OWLS, KILL THE OWLS
So humans weren't responsible for the decline of the barred owl. Banning logging didn't do it. The barrel owl just can't compete. So now we're going to go around shooting its competitor owl, even though this is how nature works and this is how species change.
That's a cost of almost $1,000 per owl. I suspect it would be cheaper to just declare a $50 bounty per barred owl than to hire "contractors" to play an owl call and then shoot them with a shotgun at 1K per owl.

This story is about a labor leader I once met whom I did understood. This fellow was named Herr Eichhorn and he'd become dictator in a town in Germany named Dusseldorf.
There'd been an uprising and the Bolsheviks captured the town. Eichhorn had been a street car conductor and now he found himself in the Burgomeister's Palace as a dictator of whatever province Dusseldorf was in. He was running the works.
I met him at the palace to talk. He was a very fine street car conductor who sat there beaming and happy at his desk. I asked him what he'd done since he'd become a dictator.
"Well the first thing O did is two days after I was dictator, I doubled the salaries of all the street car employees," he said.
"That's fine, what else did you do?"
"I doubled the salaries of all the street cleaners. In fact I've doubled all the salaries in Dusseldorf."
"Where do you get all the money to pay all these double wages?" I asked.
He said, "I get it out of the treasury of Dusseldorf."
So I thought for a moment and I asked him, "What'll happen when you run out of the money in the Treasury of Dusseldorf? How are you going to pay these double wages?"
He grinned. "I'm not worried about that, by the time that happens I won't be dictator."
