RICHMOND, Va.- (Jan. 19, 2015) A bill introduced in the Virginia assembly would take the next step in stopping illegal federal kidnapping under the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act.
Virginia stood alone and passed the first bill in the country addressing detention provisions written into the NDAA in 2012. That law forbids state agencies, in some situations, from cooperating with any federal attempts to exercise the indefinite detention provisions written into sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.
HB2144, sponsored by Del. Benjamin L. Cline (R – House District 24), takes things two steps beyond simply refusing to cooperate with the federal agents in the event of indefinite detention in Virginia. This bill turns the tables and systematically creates the type of leverage and attention D.C. would not want public if it refuses to cooperate with the state of Virginia.
This legislation would require two things from the feds if it detains a U.S. citizen in the state of Virginia.
You can’t blame Muslims for thinking America is ripe for conquest, when you consider what we have in the White House. But Obama won’t be around forever. Despite moonbattery having reached epidemic proportions, American endures. When Muslims staged a “Stand With the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas over the weekend, they discovered that not all of us are Charlie Hebdo; some of us are ready to shoot back.
The event featured Imam Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and no doubt a likely candidate for Obama’s next Director of Homeland Security. The purpose of the conference was to use political correctness to bludgeon the resistance to the spreading cancer of Islam. But the 2,000 or more anti-jihad protesters who turned up didn’t seem all that worried about being denounced as “Islamophobes.”
Enraged that the conference was essentially hosted by the Garland Independent School District, patriots converged from throughout the region in an encouraging show of resistance. Many arrived on two wheels, called to action by 2 Million Bikers to DC.
Compliments of Bunker, here’s what the jihad is up against when it ventures outside of friendly territory like NYC and Washington and into the Heartland:
Some advice for expansionist Muslims: when in Texas, remember the Alamo.
Islamists might also want to tread lightly in Louisiana, which sent a contingent to Garland:
Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
On this national holiday it is important to remember the true history of the US Civil Rights movement in the United States.
On September 28, 1868, a mob of Democrats massacred nearly 300 African-American Republicans in Opelousas, Louisiana. The savagery began when racist Democrats attacked a newspaper editor, a white Republican and schoolteacher for ex-slaves. Several African-Americans rushed to the assistance of their friend, and in response, Democrats went on a “Negro hunt,” killing every African-American (all of whom were Republicans) in the area they could find.

On April 20, 1871 the Republicans passed the anti-Ku Klux Klan Act outlawing Democratic terrorist groups.
The Miller Center reported:
On April 20, 1871, at the urging of President Ulysses Grant, Congress passed the Ku Klux Klan Act. Also known as the third Enforcement Act, the bill was a controversial expansion of federal authority designed to give the federal government additional power to protect voters. The act established penalties in the form of fines and jail time for attempts to deprive citizens of equal protection under the laws and gave the President the authority to use federal troops and suspend the writ of habeas corpus in ensuring that civil rights were upheld.
Founded as a fraternal organization by Confederate veterans in Pulaski, Tennessee, in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan soon became a paramilitary group devoted to the overthrow of Republican governments in the South and the reassertion of white supremacy. Through murder, kidnapping, and violent intimidation, Klansmen sought to secure Democratic victories in elections by attacking black voters and, less frequently, white Republican leaders.
Republicans led the charge on civil rights and women’s rights.
It doesn’t take much to offend some people, as anyone used to dealing with the American left is already very well aware.
This time, Mikey Weistein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, complained about a U.S. Army recruitment poster that had the audacity to mention God.
“On a mission for both God and Country,” the poster outside a Phoenix recruiting station read. How frightful!
The poster was taken down by order of the Army Recruiting Command on Friday. It is unknown how long it had been on display, but images of it have been online in various social media sites since at least October, according to The Washington Times.

Jane Fonda said she hoped for an open dialogue with veterans after about 50 former military members and supporters protested the actress’s appearance Friday evening at the Weinberg Center for the Arts.
“Whenever possible I try to sit down with vets and talk with them, because I understand and it makes me sad,” Fonda told a relatively full theater, responding to a submitted question. “It hurts me and it will to my grave that I made a huge, huge mistake that made a lot of people think I was against the soldiers.”
In 1972 Fonda visited Hanoi, North Vietnam, where she criticized attacks on the dike system along the Red River. A U.S. investigation later revealed the publicity of these bombings as propaganda. Fonda’s statements and a photograph of her sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft battery outraged many Americans and veterans, leading many to call her “Hanoi Jane” and a “traitor.”
Bob Hartman, an Army veteran who served in Vietnam in 1967 and 1968, said he blamed Fonda for breaking off negotiations among the countries and held her responsible for thousands of American lives.
“She encouraged North Vietnam to pull away from the negotiations table,” he said, holding a sign outside the Court Street parking garage to protest her presence. “She got Americans killed … and she went to Vietnam to advance her husband’s career.”

It is difficult to write satire in a political-media environment that is delusional and corrupt. Satire is a comparative art, where, ultimately, truth is the basis of that comparison. When everything is a lie and reality is absurd, the similes and metaphors of satire lose their impact.
Conservative movement leaders have published a Citizen’s Mandate, which outlines initiatives they want Republicans in Congress to take in order to “stop” Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America,” something they say the American people made clear in the 2014 midterm elections with such decisive GOP victories.
According to Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle, the major bullet points that the conservative leaders say the citizenry expects of Republicans include: an end to Obama’s “promised ‘Fundamental Transformation’ of the country,” a stop to overreaches by the executive branch, a restoration of “Constitutional balance of power among the three branches of government,” for Republicans to “bring an end to the perennially unpopular Affordable Care Act,” to stop “the President’s Executive Amnesty initiatives,” while holding “the Executive branch accountable for its myriad abuses of power and its national security failures both foreign and domestic” and a new beginning that puts “the interests of the United States of America first among nations.”
They are all sensible and laudable goals, yet they do not address the essence of the problem.
It is a little like whistling past the graveyard, recommending half measures to instill faint optimism in the face of a dire situation; dilute penicillin for a political-media culture mortally infected by lies and corruption.
