Tomb of the Unknown ChristmasOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Teens stopped Port Richey man from grabbing toddlers at playground, mother says

    I’m impressed that the teens came to her aid after she scolded them for their language. I can’t help but laugh at the “I am Obama” part.

      “Three of boys peeled from the pack and surrounded Smith.”

      Peeled from the *pack*…seriously? Nice adjective to use in describing someone who supposedly saved two children’s lives.

      That whole story sounds bogus, IMO.

    SDC, you have mail.

    I forwarded you a copy of the FBI-SHRs for 2011. Fascinating reading. The FBI does not collate caliber specific data. However; the SHRs can be used to refute the idea that “assault rifles” are used in the most crime ravaged cities.

    That there has been an “outcry” about the story below, gives me hope:

    Monday 04 February 2013

    Saudi preacher who ‘raped and tortured’ his five -year-old daughter to death is released after paying ‘blood money’

    Local reports say public anger over the settlement is growing across Saudi Arabia

    “A ‘celebrity’ Saudi preacher accused of raping, torturing and killing his five-year-old daughter has reportedly been released from custody after agreeing to pay ‘blood money’.”

    “Fayhan al-Ghamdi had been accused of killing his daughter Lama, who suffered multiple injuries including a crushed skull, broken back, broken ribs, a broken left arm and extensive bruising and burns. Social workers say she had also been repeatedly raped and burnt.”
    The Puke “admitted using a cane and cables to inflict the injuries after doubting his five-year-old daughter’s virginity and taking her to a doctor, according to the campaign group Women to Drive.”

    “Rather than getting the death penalty or receiving a long prison sentence for the crime,” The Puke “served only a few months in jail before a judge ruled the prosecution could only seek ‘blood money’.”

    “Albawaba News reported the judge as saying: “Blood money and the time the defendant had served in prison since Lama’s death suffices as punishment.”
    The Puke “who regularly appears on television in Saudi Arabia, is said to have agreed to pay £31,000 to Lama’s mother.”

    “The money is considered compensation under Islamic law, although it is only half the amount that would have been paid had Lama been a boy.”

    “Despite Saudi Arabia’s famously strict legal system, Women to Drive say fathers cannot be executed for murdering their children in the country. Equally, husbands cannot be executed for murdering their wives.”

    “Formal objections to the ruling have been raised by three Saudi activists, and the twitter hashtag #AnaLama (which translates as I Am Lama) has been set up.”

    “Local reports say public anger over the settlement is growing across Saudi Arabia, with authorities planning to set up a 24-hour hotline to take calls about child abuse.”


    • aliashubbatch says:

      Hang him high, nuff said.


    • Sharon says:

      “….public anger over the settlement is growing across Saudi Arabia”

      What has happened in this case is a perfect illustration of what the continuum of Islam is: when Islam is allowed to be Islam with all of its parts functioning as they are designed to function, fathers raping and murdering their little girls is exactly where you end up.

      I have a few questions:

      What are the Saudis so upset about? Do they not understand their own religion?

      The “authorities” are going to take calls about child abuse??? Oh, that’s rich. Will the boys who are being raped regularly by older male relatives make the mistake of thinking they are included in this convenient moment of national conscience??

      The essence of a contiuum is this: If we keep going the direction we are headed, we will eventually get where we’re going. I thought that Arab Islamists were so smart–didn’t they invent math and create the circle and come up with the idea of fire and stuff? But it looks like they didn’t know they were going to end up at this point. Hm.

    Been watching a possible Administration strategy unfold for a few days now. Seems Chicago’s war-zone murder rate’s becoming an issue in the ongoing gun-grab battle. Looks like on strategy is to blame Mississippi for the mess as soooooo many guns recovered in Chicago are traced back to Mississippi, the city of Oxford in particular. Basis for the Oxford-Chicago funnel is that so many members of black families moved from Mississippi[i to Illinois that at one point in the 70s Illinois had more black Mississippi expats living there than any other state in the union. There are many family and social ties twixt Chicago and northern Mississippi and these ties account for a goody part of the illegal gun flows. Oxford was known to be a prime source of Chicago’s imported weapons since at least 2003 (personal ATF-based knowledge here) but it was years after that before DoJ managed to snag FOUR (that’s right, f-o-u-r) illegal gun sellers out of the flock in Oxford. From Chicago paper a few days old I’m seeing that the flow of guns traced back to Mississippi is still strong and well-known to the officials in Chicago. To add insult to injury its also been known for years that that nearly a quarter of all illegal guns confiscated in Chicago come from ONE GUNSHOP just a few miles outside of the city’s border, even the Rev JJ demonstrated outside of the gun shop a few years back to protest the weapons flow – gun shop is still open. So here we have demonstrated clear trails of knowledge by public officials as to where a goodly portion of the illegal Chicago guns are coming from, coupled with a clear trail of almost zero action on every government level from local to Federal to stop it. Effectiveness wise it’s startin’ to look a lot like the War on Drugs, ain’t it?


    • Patriot Dreamer says:

      And yet the same pols keep getting re-elected. You know what they say about insanity…


    • cajunkelly says:

      Coincidentally I watched a documentary on TV night before last about this same issue; the gun runner connection between MS and Chicago. This one documented straw purchases…one lady bought TWENTY…that’s 20 guns folks, under the star buyer guise.

      One’s gotta wonder why some flags weren’t raised when 20 background checks were done on ONE female.


      • czarowniczy says:

        It’s up to the Federal attorney to accept the charges and file. i can’t remember one straw buyer being charged while i was doing the purchase record checks though some persons who put the straw buyers up to it and were not eligible to own a gun were. You don’t move up the Federal promotion ladder if you spend too much time clogging the courts with small-fish catches, gotta center on those wicked tuna ones.

    • michellc says:

      I have a question, how is anyone supposed to survive this?

      My way of thinking is money will be useless, gold and silver will be useless because you can’t eat it, and it won’t matter how much food you have saved up those without it will just turn you over to the government if the government hasn’t already been spying on you long enough to know what you have.

      On a Biblical point what they are describing though sounds pretty familiar. So yeah, people need to wake up because God is the only one going to save their soul.


      • texan59 says:

        Your first line was a rhetorical question right?


        • michellc says:

          Let’s just say other than the ones that are part of the dictatorship, nobody else will survive. However, I don’t think they’re thinking it through very well either. After they’ve confiscated all the food and either killed or locked the rest of us up(which I’m pretty sure we’d die of starvation fairly quickly as they won’t share the food) what do they plan to eat when the food runs out?
          I think they’re going to find their utopia turn into hell and in short order find out that their hell wasn’t as bad as the hell they get to experience for eternity.

    Muslim patrols could become more prevalent and more violent, warns anti-extremist

    “Muslim patrols stalking British streets could become “a lot more dangerous” and perhaps even willing to maim or kill, the head of an anti-extremism organisation has warned.”

    “…groups of Muslim vigilantes, dubbing themselves ‘Muslim Patrols’ have approached Londoners and demanded they behave in an Islamic way by not drinking. “

    “They have also told women to put more clothes on, claiming they are entering ‘Muslim areas’. “

    “…imitating Hitler’s Brownshirts by “enforcing with threats and violence their version of the law in neighbourhoods,” said Mr Nawaz, who spent years in his youth as a leadership member of a global Islamist group. “

    “Mr Nawaz is now a leading critic of his former Islamist ideological dogma, while remaining a Muslim. “

      While the cramped West Wing has long been due a refurbishment, some have speculated that the building work is actually on a new presidential command centre to be used in case of emergency.

      It’s a little creepy-crawly that these people don’t seem to have a clue about living normal, everyday lives but obviously thrive on endless crisis and lack of normalcy. And yes, I know why, but this is a loaded illustration of the thing.


  14. Sharon says:

    California wants violence insurance for gun owners to cover all damages or injuries caused by their weapons and, of course, to further erode the Second Amendment. It is also a nice source of income for the bankrupt state.

    This may be a regular feature on this site–hadn’t seen it before…this is just one paragraph of about 10-12 about “good news Wednesday”….funny stuff (and all true)


  15. Sharon says:

    Unlike that steroid-drenched rockhead Sylvester Stallone, who recently suggested confiscating some weapons, Hollywood star Bruce Willis seems to be thinking clearly about gun rights. We hope Willis is ready for the hatefest about to come his way.

    Today’s email:

    Let’s hear it for Obama, this little story is UNBELIEVABLE!

    Check out the Gov. Assistance at the end.


    We felt like this was the perfect time to share this IMPORTANT story with you.
    Recently, our good friend Michael (a local realtor) shared his experience with Leisa and I about an “Obama supporter” he encountered while showing homes to a low income, working family in Pontiac , MI .. We asked him to please write it down so we could share it with you. YOU SHOULD BE SITTING DOWN WHILE READING THIS:

    As a Realtor for the past 28 years I thought I’d seen or heard it all… Until now.
    I was showing homes in Pontiac , MI. one afternoon recently and showed up at a home at the 4:00 pm time my appointment was scheduled for. After I woke up the homeowner, she let us in and then proceeded to tell my buyers and I that she has already entered into a contract to sell the home on a short-sale. (A short-sale is a sale where the banks accepts less money than is owed on the home). After some chit-chat, she proceeded to tell us that she and her sister (who also lived in the area) were buying each other’s homes via the short-sale process. I mentioned to her that I thought relatives could not be involved in those transactions. She smiled and said “We have two different last names so no one knows the difference”.

    She went on to tell us that each of them owed over 100K on their homes and were in the process of buying each other’s homes for about 10-15K cash. To top it off, they were each receiving $3,000.00 in government provided relocation assistance at the closing.

    My buyers and I were amazed that she was outright admitting to fraud and yet, she continued. She began to tell us that the best part of their scheme was that because they currently were not working that they (both) are now receiving Section 8 Vouchers.
    I said I thought those were for renters and she said “That’s the best part; me and my sister are going to be renting each other’s homes so we don’t even have to move, and Obama is going to give us each $800.00 a month to pay the rent!” She then picked up a picture she had framed of Obama and did a little happy dance around her living room and while she kissed the picture she was singing “Thank you Obama…. thank you Obama.”

    So here is the bottom line… Both of these scammers got at least $80,000.00 in debt forgiven, $3,000.00 in cash for relocation (when in fact they did not relocate) and to boot, you and I will now be paying (through our taxes) $1,600.00 in rent for each them each and every month…. perhaps forever!

    Is it any wonder why so many people have decided that all they have to do is VOTE for the Democrats and they will be taken care of for life at the expense of the taxpayers? I would not be at all surprised if they are receiving food stamps and whatever other programs are available for anyone who is willing to lie to get assistance.

    These women went from working and paying about $900.00 each in mortgage payments to staying home and getting paid $800.00 each per month to live in the same home they had been living in and all they had to do was lie on a few papers.
    This craziness has to stop! I’m sure this kind of fraud is going on each and every day all across the country and no one wants to touch the subject of entitlements because they might OFFEND someone or lose a vote or two.

    By the way… she had an almost new SUV in the driveway, three flat screen TV’s and a very nice computer set up in her living room which was furnished entirely with nice leather furniture.


    For all of the “do-gooder’s” who voted for Obama to help the “less fortunate” …. CHEERS ….. they are now the “most fortunate!” How’re things working out for you??

    Here is a link to some of the government assistance programs available today:

    Gun Owners of America


    Oppose Joe Manchin’s Veterans Gun Ban
    and National Gun Registry

    Reports out of Capitol Hill reveal that just-reelected turncoat West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is about to stick a big knife in the back of American gun owners. And to make matters worse, he’s lying about what he’s doing.

    Both Manchin and House anti-gun crazy Carolyn McCarthy are claiming to be “working with NRA” to enact gun bans and national gun registries. NRA says flatly that Manchin is lying, and we believe he is. (The Hill, 1/24/13)

    More at the link.

      There you go!!! 👿 I quit the NRA when I found out they were endorsing Manchin for Senate….it was the last straw. I was sick of an organization that had the tunnel vision to only support candidates based on their stand on gun owner’s rights. What about the big picture, i said? Now it’s come back to bite ’em in the behind…..exactly like the majority of us predicted. 👿 The GOA are the only people we should be supporting.


    • michellc says:

      My senator needs to be added to the list of turncoats. Coburn is working with them and he’s being a total idiot in doing it by making the claim that we have to transfer a title on a car in order to sell it, so why not a gun?
      I had already sent him an e-mail with links to every mass murder news story 2009-2012 and proved that not one single one was their evidence that the guns were bought through private sales and instead 8 of the 11 the news stories said the guns were purchased through licensed dealers passing the background check. Only one of the remaining three said where they got the guns and it was the latest who stole them from his mother.
      I have since sent him another e-mail informing him when I purchase a car from someone and have the title transferred into my name I don’t have to fill out a form getting clearance from government. Although cars kill more people than guns do and although cars are not listed as a right, I don’t have to take a breathalyzer or prove in anyway shape or form that I never was convicted of drunk driving. I reminded him that he represented us, not himself or his opinions and we Oklahomans do not want and have not asked for universal background checks or any compromises with democrats who want to strip us of our God given rights guaranteed to us by the Constitution.

      I’m sure I’m guaranteeing my name on their list, but I’m tired of caring and ready to scream from the rooftops bring it and get it over with.

        • Sharon says:

          Over a hundred years ago, President Woodrow Wilson got the legislation pushed through to establish the income tax system. This was his reason–and I quote:

          ….he claimed that big business was “cutting average Americans out of their fair share of wealth…” and was claiming that he was, by establishing the income tax, providing “new opportunity for average people to get ahead…”

          Woodrow Wilson gifted this country with the income tax, with the union mentality, with the Federal Reserve and publicly bragged that he would “reign in big business.”

          The “big businesses” he was going to reign in were those horrible railroad companies and shipping companies which were foundational to commercial growth of the nation.

          Oh, by the way, under Wilson’s generous and very perfect progressive hand, integration in federal hiring, etc. was reversed, blacks and whites were re-segregated in the work place and inter-racial marriage was made a felony in Washington, D. C. He specifically held to a view that blacks were “less evolved than whites…”

          The blacks who had helped him get elected went to Washington to confront him about some of these itty-bitty issues. They got through the conversation ok, inside the White House, but one of the black persons, a man by name of Trotter, committed a major boo-boo after he realized that the black community had been used for the purpose of getting Wilson elected and now that he was done with them, he would appreciate if they would shut up and go away–his boo-boo was this: he stopped in the driveway of the White House as he was leaving and held an impromptu press conference with the newsmen who were gathered there!

          In the months that followed, Wilson made no attempt to backtrack public or privately on his anti-black, anti-integration views.

          I am so sorry I did not start mistrusting everybody about 40 years ago, and didn’t start much, much earlier finding out what they DIDN’T tell us about American History.
