"Caliphate is Mark Steyn's America Alone with body count."—John Ringo"Slavery is a part of Islam . . . Slavery is part of jihad, and jihad will remain as long there is Islam." —Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan, author of the religious textbook At-Tawhid ("Monotheism") and senior Saudi cleric.
Demography is destiny. In the 22nd century European deathbed demographics have turned the continent over to the more fertile Moslems. Atheism in Europe has been exterminated. Homosexuals are hanged, stoned or crucified. Such Christians as remain are relegated to dhimmitude, a form of second class citizenship. They are denied arms, denied civil rights, denied a voice, and specially taxed via the Koranic yizya. Their sons are taken as conscripted soldiers while their daughters are subject to the depredations of the continent's new masters.
In that world, Petra, a German girl sold into prostitution as a slave at the age of nine to pay her family's yizya, dreams of escape. Unlike most girls of the day, Petra can read. And in her only real possession, her grandmother's diary, a diary detailing the fall of European civilization, Petra has learned of a magic place across the sea: America.
But it will take more than magic to free Petra and Europe from their bonds; it will take guns, superior technology, and a reborn spirit of freedom.
About the authorIn 1974, at age seventeen, Tom Kratman became a political refugee and defector from the PRM (People's Republic of Massachusetts) by virtue of joining the Regular Army. He stayed a Regular Army infantryman most of his adult life, returning to Massachusetts as an unofficial dissident while attending Boston College after his first hitch. Back in the Army, he managed to do just about everything there was to do, at one time or another. After the Gulf War, and with the bottom dropping completely out of the anti-communism market, Tom decided to become a lawyer. Every now and again, when the frustrations of legal life and having to deal with other lawyers got to be too much, Tom would rejoin the Army (or a somewhat similar group, say) for fun and frolic in other climes. His family, muttering darkly, put up with this for years. He no longer practices law, instead writing full time for Baen. His novels for Baen include A State of Disobedience, A Desert Called Peace and its sequel Carnifex, as well as two collaborations with John Ringo, Watch on the Rhine and Yellow Eyes.
A NEW STAR OF MILITARY SCIENCE FICTION
The original Alcubierre warp drive required the equivalent of a Jupiter mass in energy - that old e=mc^2 factor - and was considered forever out of reach. Dr. White has done some analysis that reduces the energy requirement to just 1,600 pounds. His NASA paper is here (pdf).
A few months ago, physicist Harold White stunned the aeronautics world when he announced that he and his team at NASA had begun work on the development of a faster-than-light warp drive. His proposed design, an ingenious re-imagining of an Alcubierre Drive, may eventually result in an engine that can transport a spacecraft to the nearest star in a matter of weeks — and all without violating Einstein's law of relativity. We contacted White at NASA and asked him to explain how this real life warp drive could actually work.
A Batavia High School teacher's fans are rallying to support him as he faces possible discipline for advising students of their Constitutional rights before taking a school survey on their behavior.
They've been collecting signatures on an online petition, passing the word on Facebook, sending letters to the school board, and planning to speak at Tuesday's school board meeting.
Students and parents have praised his ability to interest reluctant students in history and current affairs.
But John Dryden said he's not the point. He wants people to focus on the issue he raised: Whether school officials considered that students could incriminate themselves with their answers to the survey that included questions about drug and alcohol use.
Dryden, a social studies teacher, told some of his students April 18 that they had a 5th Amendment right to not incriminate themselves by answering questions on the survey, which had each student's name printed on it.Damn right they have the right to know! Just because a kid steps through the schoolhouse door, he or she does NOT become property and lose basic human rights.
Dryden faces having a "letter of remedy" placed in his employment file. He said this week he is negotiating the matter with district authorities.
Only a school board can issue a letter of remedy, which informs teachers their conduct was improper and could have consequences up to dismissal, according to state law.Today, you definitely take your career in your hands by speaking the truth - especially in school.
Thank you for taking the time to write. I have heard from many Americans regarding firearms policy and gun violence in our Nation, and I appreciate your perspective. From Aurora to Newtown to the streets of Chicago, we have seen the devastating effects gun violence has on our American family. I join countless others in grieving for all those whose lives have been taken too soon by gun violence.
Okay - you keep using "gun violence" and ignoring the fact that there are evil human beings operating that gun...
Like the majority of Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. In this country, we have a strong tradition of gun ownership that has been handed down from generation to generation. Hunting and sport shooting are part of our national heritage. Yet, even as we acknowledge that almost all gun owners in America are responsible, when we look at the devastation caused by gun violence—whether in high-profile tragedies or the daily heartbreak that plagues our cities—we must ask ourselves whether we are doing enough.
Keep telling us that - in a few million years we might start to believe that YOU believe it!
While reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm should not be a divisive one. Most gun owners agree that we can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale. Most also agree that if we took commonsense steps to curtail gun violence, there would be fewer atrocities like the one that occurred in Newtown. We will not be able to stop every violent act, but if there is even one thing we can do to reduce gun violence—if even one life can be saved—then we have an obligation to try.
Ah - the old "if only one life is saved" argument for creating a socialist Utopia.
You can't prevent ANY violent act without a fully integrated pre-crime police state. Give up.
That is why I asked Vice President Joe Biden to identify concrete steps we can take to keep our children safe, help prevent mass shootings, and reduce the broader epidemic of gun violence in this country. He met with over 200 groups representing a broad cross-section of Americans and heard their best ideas. I have put forward a specific set of proposals based off of his efforts, and in the days ahead, I intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality.
You gave Biden that job to keep him from tripping over his dick so often in public. He met with 200 anti-gun groups [ preaching to the choir.
My plan gives law enforcement, schools, mental health professionals, and the public health community some of the tools they need to help reduce gun violence. These tools include strengthening the background check system, helping schools hire more resource officers and counselors and develop emergency preparedness plans, and ensuring mental health professionals know their options for reporting threats of violence. And I directed the Centers for Disease Control to study the best ways to reduce gun violence—because it is critical that we understand the science behind this public health crisis. From improving mental health services to looking more closely at a culture that too often glorifies violence, we must leave no stone unturned when working to keep Americans safe.
"Tools" like intrusive infringements on our remaining Constitutional rights to face our accusers and have property and freedom taken away by correct application or legal laws.
It's politicians from your side of the fence that destroyed the mental health infrastructure we had un until the 1960's.
Isn't there a law passed by Congress prohibiting the CDC from wasting more money on gun control justification?
As important as these steps are, they are not a substitute for action from Congress. To make a real and lasting difference, members of Congress must also act. As part of my comprehensive plan, I have called on them to pass some specific proposals right away. First, it is time to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. Second, Congress should renew the 10-round limit on magazines and reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban. We should get tougher on those who buy guns with the purpose of selling them to criminals, and we should impose serious punishments on anyone who helps them do this.
Yeah - let's do what was proven to be useless again, only HARDER! Let's get that Nazi-style gun registry all set up and running so you or one of your successors can disarm all the law-abiding in short order when it comes time for America's turn at building our own versions of Dachau.
These are reasonable, commonsense measures that have the support of the majority of the American people. But change will not come unless the American people demand it from their lawmakers. Now is the time to do the right thing for our children, our communities, and the country we love. We owe the victims of heartbreaking national tragedies and the countless unheralded tragedies each year nothing less than our best effort—to seek consensus in order to save lives and ensure a brighter future for our children.
Last time I looked, the majority of Americans were against all of your proposals and buying guns and whatever ammo the DHS has left on the shelves at an amazing rate.
What we owe the victims of violence is to make sure the survivors are free to keep and bear arms in defense of their families.
That change you keep wanting is coming - and you won't like it much.
Thank you, again, for writing. I encourage you to visit www.WhiteHouse.gov/NowIsTheTime to learn more about my Administration’s approach.

In 2011, a total of 478,400 fatal and nonfatal violent
crimes were committed with a firearm (table 1).
Homicides made up about 2% of all firearm-related
crimes. There were 11,101 firearm homicides in 2011,
down by 39% from a high of 18,253 in 1993 (figure 1).
The majority of the decline in firearm-related homicides
occurred between 1993 and 1998. Since 1999, the number of
firearm homicides increased from 10,828 to 12,791 in 2006
before declining to 11,101 in 2011.

persons age 12 or older declined 70%, from 1.5 million
in 1993 to 456,500 in 2004 (figure 2). The number then
fluctuated between about 400,000 to 600,000 through 2011.1
While the number of firearm crimes declined over time, the
percentage of all violence that involved a firearm did not
change substantively, fluctuating between 6% and 9% over
the same period. In 1993, 9% of all violence was committed
with a firearm, compared to 8% in 2011.
In 2004, among state prison inmates who possessed a gunThere you have it - proof positive that we are right and the loony Left is dead wrong.
at the time of offense, less than 2% bought their firearm at

Gun crime has plunged in the United States since its peak in the middle of the 1990s, including gun killings, assaults, robberies and other crimes, two new studies of government data show.
Yet few Americans are aware of the dramatic drop, and more than half believe gun crime has risen, according to a newly released survey by the Pew Research Center.
In less than two decades, the gun murder rate has been nearly cut in half. Other gun crimes fell even more sharply, paralleling a broader drop in violent crimes committed with or without guns. Violent crime dropped steeply during the 1990s and has fallen less dramatically since the turn of the millennium.
The number of gun killings dropped 39% between 1993 and 2011, the Bureau of Justice Statistics reported in a separate report released Tuesday. Gun crimes that weren’t fatal fell by 69%. However, guns still remain the most common murder weapon in the United States, the report noted. Between 1993 and 2011, more than two out of three murders in the U.S. were carried out with guns, the Bureau of Justice Statistics found.So, they report the truth - but subtly warp their language to keep the guns as evil ball rolling and make sure you still know that GUNS are the reason for most murders - not the murderers who use them.

For once, the good guys win.f you want to help Cole, I would suggest polite, strongly-worded letters to the contacts below, as well as petitions and shares of this post.
- Contact the Johnson County School Board and let them know what you think of their actions.
- Contact the Johnston County DA Susan Doyle via email Susan.I.Doyle@nccourts.org or telephone (919) 209-5521 and ask her to immediately drop the charges against Cole.
- Sign this petition that is going to the School Board.
- Sign this petition to the Governor.
- Keep up with the #FreeCole campaign at their Facebook page.
A few things to consider from this video. As I mentioned, militias are perfectly legal under the United States Constitution. Keeping and bearing arms is supposed to be protected under the Second Amendment of the Constitution as well and as we’ve taken the time to point out, the federal government has no authority to regulate or restrict arms. They just aren’t given that authority in the Constitution. Therefore, the claim of “illegal possession of firearms” causes one to wonder, are these men felons and shouldn’t have a firearm? Are these men in possession of illegal guns and if so, upon what basis are they declared illegal? Federal legislation or state legislation?Found here.
