    The United States Army will be deploying troops to nearly three-dozen African nations in 2013!


    The Pentagon announces the move is to address emerging threats from Islamic groups spreading across the Dark Continent. The real purpose is to counter growing Chinese influence throughout Africa.

    Since 2010, China has spent more than $100 Billion purchasing oil, gas and rare mineral rights throughout Africa. In that same period it provided $20 Billion in cheap loans and relocated thousands of Chinese workers in an effort to improve infrastructure and transportation networks.

    Since 2007, Pentagon planners have secretly enhanced the U.S. military footprint across Africa, by dispatching special intelligence units, drone-launching technicians and Special Forces teams to “dark” bases in Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia. Since then the U.S. has been rapidly increasing its presence, which could be used to strike at groups allegedly threatening U.S. interests, which effectively means oil and mining operations.

    The Pentagon will soon have thousands of U.S. soldiers across Africa; a sizable number of whom will be Special Forces and technical units specializing in drone operations. Mercenaries will also be used from the growing number of private war firms that have been setting up shop around the world.

    It’s worth remembering the Vietnam War began with the assignment of a limited number of trainers and advisors. The U.S. military presence in Vietnam began when the United States Military Assistance Advisory Group established a presence in Saigon to assist French legionnaires battling Viet Minh forces. Over the next decade, the Pentagon turned this modest advisory role into a full-blown war that claimed the lives of nearly 60,000 Americans and more than 3 million Southeast Asians.

    A painting by Michael D’Antuono on display at the Bunker Hill Community College Arts Gallery in Boston, Mass., portrays President Obama as a crucified Jesus Christ, Todd Starnes reported at Fox News.

    The painting, called "Truth," shows the president with a crown of thorns on his head and his arms outstretched in a pose that recalls the crucifixion of Christ.

    "It was originally supposed to debut nearly four years ago at New York City’s Union Square," Starnes wrote, but the event was "cancelled due to public outrage."

    D’Antuono said the painting is a metaphor not intended to compare Obama to Jesus Christ.

    Interestingly, a pre-recorded BET special began with Jamie Foxx telling an enthusiastic crowd to "give honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama!"

    In November 2010, a Newsweek cover depicted Obama as "god of all things." Shortly after Obama's first inauguration, Newsweek's Evan Thomas said that, "in a way, Obama’s standing above the country. Above – above the world. [Barry’s] sort of God!"

    I don't think the founding fathers ever thought the press would become an arm of a political party. The press has a power given them by the Constitution and they abuse that power in the most egregious way.

    I recommend a book called "The Ten Commandments of Propaganda." It is an interesting read.

    Students at University of Missouri don't need to cram for exams that fall on Wiccan and Pagan holidays, now that the school has put them on par with Christmas, Thanksgiving and Hanukah.

    “It’s beyond political correctness. It’s almost like an excuse to do nothing."

    “Maybe the One-Call network should step-up and join the University of Missouri on the acceptance of Wiccan and Pagan holidays making the total of 43 holidays recognized a year!"

    A company which received $2 million dollars from the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) has apologized for their sale of “no more hesitation” shooting targets which depicted pregnant women, children, and elderly gun owners in residential settings as “non-traditional threats,” following an online uproar.

    Law Enforcement Targets Inc. (LET), a Minneapolis based company that has received almost $2 million dollars in contracts from the Department of Homeland Security over the last three years, recently began selling cardboard cut-out targets designed to desensitize police to “non-traditional threats,” including pregnant women, mothers in school playgrounds, and little boys, as well as elderly gun owners in their homes.

    The company’s relationship with the DHS, along with thousands of law enforcement agencies, led to fears that the targets could be connected with Homeland Security’s purchase of roughly 2 billion rounds of ammunition over the last year, which many fear is linked to preparations for mass social unrest.

    The company’s excuse that the targets were designed to help police prevent “unnecessary loss of life” is highly dubious given that the images were all of armed individuals termed “non-traditional threats,” designed to ensure “no more hesitation” from police officers encountering them.

    As one respondent to the company explained, “Look, each of the “threats” appeared to be in their own home settings. They were also all holding a weapon…. It is obvious these paper targets were never intended to be the decoy (don’t shoot targets). It is apparent this was designed to assist in desensitizing the trainee.”

    Law Enforcement Targets Inc. listed the targets were designed to combat, “hesitation on the part of cops when deadly force is required on subjects with atypical age, frailty or condition.”

    View the targets that caused the uproar below:


    It reads in part, “Non-traditional threat depicting a hostile pregnant woman in a nursery."

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------


    It reads in part, “Non-traditional threat depicting a hostile older man holding a shotgun."


    It reads in part, “Non-traditional threat depicting a hostile young mother surrounded by children on a playground."

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------


    It reads in part, “Non-traditional threat depicting a school aged girl on street."

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------


    It reads in part, “Non-traditional threat depicting a very young boy holding a real gun."

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------


    It reads in part, “Non-traditional threat depicting a hostile older woman in her home.”

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------


    It reads in part, “Non-traditional threat depicting a hostile older man in his home holding a shotgun."

    (Damn right these gun owners are hostile. They are in their own home or public spaces defending themselves against invaders. If these citizens were in dark clothing, standing before a bank teller, maybe then they could be defined as a "Non-traditional threats.")

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Although the targets have been taken off the company’s website, it’s unclear whether or not they have been removed from sale entirely.

    Mike Lilly, a retired 32-year police officer, demanded that the targets be discontinued completely.

    “Whomever convinced you this was a good idea needs psychological counseling. Proper training and readiness is NOT dependent on shooting pictures of pregnant women and children. Anyone who says otherwise is seriously mistaken or has another agenda It is noted that you say they were taken OFFLINE. Have they been DISCONTINUED AND RECALLED?” he stated.

    Lilly’s concern was echoed by retired City of Houston police officer T.F. Stern, who asked why police officers were being trained “to feel nothing's wrong in shooting a pregnant lady or an old man with a shotgun inside his own home.”

    Written By Constitutional Attorney Michael Connelly, J.D.

    How would you feel if you received a letter from the U.S. Government informing you that because of a physical or mental condition that the government says you have it is proposing to rule that you are incompetent to handle your own financial affairs? Suppose that letter also stated that the government is going to appoint a stranger to handle your affairs for you at your expense? That would certainly be scary enough but it gets worse.

    What if that letter also stated: “A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L.No. 103-159, as implemented at 18, United States Code 924(a)(2).”?

    That makes it sound like something right from a documentary on a tyrannical dictatorship somewhere in the world. Yet, it is being sent by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of America’s heroes.

    The letter provides no specifics on the reasons for the proposed finding of incompetency; just that is based on a determination by someone in the VA. In every state in the United States no one can be declared incompetent to administer their own affairs without due process of law. That requires a judicial hearing with evidence being offered to prove to a judge that the person is indeed incompetent. This is a requirement of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that states that no person shall “… be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law…”.

    Many of the veterans being deprived of their rights have no idea why it is happening. The reality is that Obama will not get all of the gun control measures he wants through Congress. He wants a totally disarmed America so there will be no resistance to his plans to rob us of our nation. It certainly fits in with the philosophy and plans of the Obama administration. It is also certain that our military veterans don’t deserve this and neither do any other Americans.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary has already provided more than $50 million in "non-lethal assistance" such as communications gear and "governance training" to these opposition groups. Hillary also provided $365 million in humanitarian aid for Syrian refugees in countries such Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon, channeling this money through non-governmental organizations.

    What is sickening to me, the tens of millions of U.S. taxpayer monies that Hillary and John Kerry are so freely giving to factions within the Muslim Brotherhood (and even al Qaeda!) are the same rebels who have killed 7,000 of our servicemen in the Middle East! Hey John Kerry, you worthless piece of shit - Would you have liked it if Secretary of State Dean Rusk was giving huge sums of money and "non-lethal assistance" in 1968 to North Vietnam for any stupid reason while you and your buddies were getting your asses shot at by the North Vietnamese Army in the jungle of South Vietnam? If it would make no sense doing that for our enemy in 1968, what makes it okay to give money and aid to our enemy today?

    It is worth remembering the praise Kerry heaped on Assad in the past, going so far as call Assad a "dear friend." As Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Kerry made repeated pilgrimages to Syria, meeting with Assad five times between 2009 and 2011. Today, though, Kerry refuses to acknowledge his hypocrisy or that he visited his "dear friend."

    Money, weapons and logistics have been poured into a trumped up rebellion orchestrated by the U.S., Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar to destabilize the sovereign nation of Syria who is no threat to America................

    But it can be...again.
    Character is what you are in the dark. It is the things you do, when nobody can see, and nobody will ever know, that define who you are as an individual.

    It had a great opening.
    The opening hook was good but it seems like they sling mud only to the right. It's obvious where HBO's sympathies lie. If they were equal opportunity slingers I would be ok with it. One well known commentator called it best. It's basically the left dramatizing every recent political argument but scripting it so they win.
