65,000 Rounds Donated for Rifle Training at Boy Scouts Camp

CBS St. Louis is reporting that scouts attending the Boy Scouts of America Cornhusker Council day camp will be able to shoot real rifles for firearm training thanks to a donation of 65,000 rounds of ammunition. Prior to receiving these bullets, camp personnel thought the scouts would have to shoot air rifles instead. Cornhusker Council district director Jerad Reimers said he had asked “suppliers for bullets but came up empty-handed.” He then asked gun shops, and received about 1,500 rounds in donations. From there, word began to spread and people from all over the country began to donate. The Lincoln… View Article

Talk hosts recruited to push immigration reform?

America’s TV and radio talk hosts have been reportedly wooed behind the  scenes to get their more conservative audience to back immigration-reform  legislation. The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza stirred up a hornet’s nest earlier this week by  reporting that Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and John McCain, R-Ariz. – two of the  “Gang of Eight” behind the Senate’s comprehensive immigration-reform bill – and  others have talked privately to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and other “top hosts” to  get them on board. Then Thursday evening, after he admitted to speaking with Rubio on the phone  earlier in the day and getting certain… View Article

Obama called ‘hypocrite of the century’

A member of  the Irish parliament has sharply attacked U.S. President Barack Obama’s  policies, calling him a “war criminal” and “hypocrite of the  century.”  “Is this person  going for the hypocrite of the century award?” Left wing Member of Parliament  Clare Daly asked of Obama during a speech before parliament at the end of the G8  summit held in Northern Ireland.  “Because we have  to call things by their right names, and the reality is that by any serious  examination, this man is a war criminal,” she was quoted as saying by The  Huffington Post.  “This is the man  who… View Article

Corker Amendment Permanently Offers Citizenship to Those Overstaying Their Visa

Just as public anxiety about the weak border security provisions in the Senate immigration bill was building, GOP Sen. Bob Corker stepped forward with an amendment to “fix” the problem. The result of his efforts, however, has been a “christmas tree” measure, covering items far beyond border security. Breitbart News has learned exclusively that one provision of Corker’s amendment will allow workers who stay in the country past their visa will remain on the “path to citizenship.” Even in the future, breaking the law won’t stop progress on what VP Joe Biden calls the “unfettered path” to citizenship. The Corker… View Article

The Man who helped create the NSA spying program

William Binney is a former highly placed intelligence official turned whistleblower with the United States National Security Agency (NSA),[1] resigning on October 31, 2001 after over 30 years with the agency.

Whistleblower says NSA spying on Politicians and Judges

                  Russ Tice, a former intelligence analyst and Bush-era NSA whistleblower, claimed Wednesday that the intelligence community has ordered surveillance on a wide range of groups and individuals, including high-ranking military officials, lawmakers and diplomats. He also made another stunning allegation. He says the NSA had ordered wiretaps on phones connected to then-Senate candidate Barack Obama back in 2004. “They went after–and I know this because I had my hands literally on the paperwork for these sort of things–they went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of Congress, both Senate… View Article

Supreme Court’s authority faces stunning challenge

A coalition of Christian organizations is warning that the U.S. Supreme Court  does not have the power to redefine the institution of marriage, which predates  government, churches and even religion.

In the Proposition 8 case, a homosexual judge in California ruled that the  state’s voters did not have the right to limit marriage to one man and one  woman.

FBI ‘justified’ in every shooting since 1993 – report

It’s standard operating procedure for the FBI to conduct an internal investigation when an agent shoots a suspect. Questions are being raised, though, after a report found that every single intentional shooting in the past 20 years was deemed ‘justified.’ Between 1993 and early 2011 FBI agents fatally shot 70 people and  wounded approximately 80 others. In no incident, including one  that led to a $1.3 million payout for a victim wrongfully  identified as a bank robber, was an agent wrong to fire their  weapon. The records were obtained by The New York Times through a  Freedom of Information Act… View Article
