A Texan red neck Crockett Keller gets it! Why can’t the the rest of us get it too? Watch this story and pump your fist say way to go Crockett. This is a great story as a main street media outlet KVUE news does not condemn him but shows sympathy and is more than fair while paty lip service to the other side. Lets get this out to the rest of the the USA and the world as Crockett Keller speaks the truth.

In the early 1990s, the CIA asked me to find an Iranian scientist who would testify that Iran had the bomb. The CIA had learned that Iranian intelligence agents were visiting nuclear installations throughout the former Soviet Union, with particular interest in Kazakhstan.
Kazakhstan, which had a significant portion of the Soviet arsenal and is predominately Muslim, was courted by Muslim Iran with offers of hundreds of millions of dollars for the bomb. Reports soon surfaced that three nuclear warheads were missing. This was corroborated by Russian Gen. Victor Samoilov, who handled the disarmament issues for the general staff. He admitted that the three were missing from Kazakhstan.
Meanwhile, Paul Muenstermann, then vice president of the German Federal Intelligence Service, said Iran had received two of the three nuclear warheads and medium-range nuclear delivery systems from Kazakhstan. It also was reported that Iran had purchased four 152 mm nuclear shells from the former Soviet Union, which were reportedly stolen and sold by former Red Army officers.
To make matters worse, several years later, Russian officials stated that when comparing documents in transferring nuclear weapons from Ukraine to Russia, there was a discrepancy of 250 nuclear weapons.
Last week, Mathew Nasuti, a former U.S. Air Force captain who was at one point hired by the State Department as an adviser to one of its provincial reconstruction teams in Iraq, said that in March 2008, during a briefing on Iran at the State Department, the department’s Middle East expert told the group that it was “common knowledge” that Iran had acquired tactical nuclear weapons from one or more of the former Soviet republics.
Is it surprising? Of course not. The Occupy movement has drawn the fringiest, most radical the left has to offer. With the Communist Party also in attendance (and receiving a standing ovation), it’s only fitting that Ayers join in on the fun and host a “Teach-in.” Inevitably, the question of whether or not violence was an appropriate means to the Occupy end arose. Who better to ask than the guy who tried to blow up the Pentagon? Ayers provided the perfect contradictory answer:

You wouldn’t know FOX was supposed to be a conservative news service from their awful headline on Wednesday: “Push to Declare a Human Egg a ‘Person’ Offers New Tack on Abortion Debate.”
Apparently enough people were outraged at this appalling misnomer that FOX budged, but only slightly. The updated story now calls newly-conceived human life a “fertilized egg.”
As a relatively mature zygote myself, I object to calling my neighbors, much tinier and more dependent at the moment than FOX News headline writers, such a dehumanizing slur.
But the reason for it is no big secret. Respecting life regardless of age is just too threatening to the one convenience even right-wing Americans now tenaciously cling to: birth control.

Just as I suspect that multiculturalists have a lot of different restaurants and cuisines in mind when they praise multiculturalism, so I suspect that most of those who espouse biodiversity as a good in itself are thinking mainly of attractive or at least of harmless creatures, rather than, say, Ascaris lumbricoides, the giant (and repellent) roundworm that infects children and can cause intestinal obstruction, or Dracunculus medinensis, the Guinea-worm that, once it emerges from the skin of the foot, must be wrapped round a stick and pulled out slowly and painfully over weeks or months. It is not difficult, in fact, to think of many species that would not much be missed.
The espousal of biodiversity as a good in itself, then, is a form of pagan theodicy, in which Nature is ultimately benevolent and knows best, appearances to the contrary notwithstanding. It is the belief that organisms such as Taenia solium, the pork tapeworm, fulfill a function in the great, but unspecified, scheme of things. No one wants this kind of biodiversity in or for himself, of course.
None of this implies that the destruction of species is never, often, or even usually regrettable; but that is quite another matter from the new paganism of biodiversity.

Back in May it was reported that every rape assault in the city of Oslo in the last five years had been committed by a person with a “non-Western” background – a Norwegian euphemism for Muslim. Now it turns out that there have already been twice as many rape assaults in Oslo so far this year as there were in all of 2010. At least one member of Parliament, André Oktay Dahl of the Conservative Party, calls the situation “critical” and is brave enough to acknowledge that many of the perpetrators come from cultures “with a reprehensible attitude toward women.”
Hmmm. I wonder which countries they could be from?

Push youngest/oldest to the front lines….This is a battle over images, not just over the park.
– Charles Lenchner, Occupy Wall Street activist, Oct. 13, 2011
If the police overreact (as they are likely to) and we take the blows, and it is recorded, it will go worldwide and further tremendously galvanize the movement.
– Tarak Kauff, Veterans for Peace organizer, Oct. 13, 2011
When the activists of Occupy Oakland attacked police en masse on October 25th, throwing paint bombs and provoking volleys of tear gas, the images galvanized the Occupy movement as never before.
“Come see the violence inherent in the system!” they have all but shouted, using wild allegations of police brutality, and fallacious arguments about First Amendment violations, to build solidarity among scattered activists.
The outrage is sincere–but so is the jubilation.
Clashes with the police affirm the activistsʼ fantasy–that they are the leading a revolution, that the truths they speak are so potent that the “1 percent” must use force to suppress them.
The clashes also assuage the jealousy–what Harvard literature professor Philip Fisher once called “nightmare envy”– western radicals feel when watching the Arab Spring, where the struggles are deadly real.
But the Occupy activists have not just yearned for confrontations with police; they have planned them.
Location: Iran (Islamic Republic of)
Arrested: September 2010
Pastor Vahik Abrahamian and his wife Sonia Keshish-Avanesian were with their friends, Arash Kermanjani, and his wife, Arezo Teymouri, when all four were detained on September 4, 2010.
The two couples, who are close friends, were arrested at the Abrahamians’ home in Hamadan, west Iran, and taken to the Ministry of Islamic Guidance prison.
For the first 40 days, they were held in solitary confinement and reportedly suffered physical abuse and psychological pressure. Pastor Vahik’s wife Sonia, who was pregnant when she was arrested, is said to have suffered a miscarriage – her fourth.
The four have been accused of various offenses, including propagating Christianity, opposing the Islamic Republic of Iran, and having contact with exiled opposition figures. They have not yet been charged.
Over six months have passed since the two men and two women were arrested. They are under pressure and intense interrogation, according to Mohabat News. They were transferred from Hamadan prison to Iran’s notorious Evin prison in Tehran.
Their families are concerned for their health, but have not been able to find news of their loved ones. They are also worried about the children of the believers.

Millionaire Marxist Michael Moore was traumatized by questions addressed to him on CNN concerning his wealth. It doesn’t take much to reduce him to incoherence. Even with time to collect his thoughts, he is not entirely capable of lucidity. Yesterday he sent out an email titled “Life among the 1%,” reviewing his financial history. He revisits the moment in 1989 when he was paid $3 million for the rights to distribute his first film.
Nineteen-eighty-nine was a good year to become a millionaire. Ronald Reagan’s Tax Reform Act of 1986 had reduced the top federal income tax rate from 50 to 28 percent. Moore recalls:

When Sen. Barack Obama, a few days before his inauguration as our 44th President, promised an adoring crowd “the fundamental transformation of the United States of America,” few realized that he was not speaking merely of himself or of his own role as the country’s incoming chief executive. Behind the avatar of “hope and change” lay a left-wing “progressive” movement waiting to come to power.
At first, we knew very little about this clandestine “Red Army,” whose goal is the transformation of America into a socialist system. As a matter of strategy, the “progressives” had quietly and patiently perfected the art of creating innocuous-sounding front groups, and the promotion of its policies in the guise of moderation and in the rhetoric of modest-sounding social ideals. Before the candidacy of Obama—whose entire political career has been spent under the tutelage of the progressives, including some of its leading figures—this radical network had already succeeded over the decades in infiltrating major institutions of American power. But with his election to the presidency, it reached the highest levels of our government.
Along the way, the progressives hijacked an entire spectrum of important social causes, from feminism and race relations to environmental and antiwar activism, each of which became subordinated to an agenda having very little to do with the actual cause at hand and everything to do with the underlying agenda of the radical reconstruction of our society.
This Red Army has taken over not merely the largest worker unions, but also the mainstream of the Democratic Party.
Boy did the Brits ever see us coming in 1998 when the Chretien Liberals pulled up to Honest Nigel’s Used Submarine Shop looking to buy four underwater patrol boats. The quartet they sold us for the unbelievably low price of just $750 million have been up on blocks in our front yard almost ever since, with weeds growing out the portholes. I expect Canadian Pickers to come along anytime now and offer us $2,000 for the set, take it or leave it.
