Last Man Standing

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A two-decades-old battle between a Nevada rancher and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has resulted in officials armed with machine guns surrounding the ranch and forcibly removing the owner’s cattle, according to the rancher’s family.

  Cliven Bundy, the last rancher in Clark County, Nev., has been fighting a “one-man range war” since 1993, when he decided to take a stand against the agency, refusing to pay fees for the right to graze on a ranch run by his family for centuries.

  After years of court battles, the BLM secured a federal court order to have Bundy’s “trespass cattle” forcibly removed with heavy artillery, the family said.

“ The battle’s been going on for 20 years,” Bundy told the Washington Free Beacon. “What’s happened the last two weeks, the United States government, the bureaus are getting this army together and they’re going to get their job done and they’re going to prove two things. They’re going to prove they can do it, and they’re gonna prove that they have unlimited power, and that they control the policing power over this public land. That’s what they’re trying to prove.”

  Bundy said the government has brought everything but tanks and rocket launchers.”

Gosnell Abortion Film Too Much For Kickstarter’s ‘Diverse’ Censors

 

 

 

gosnell-movie-poster-censoredv2

 

 

 

” I was really, really happy when Kickstarter came on the scene. The crowd-funding Web site offered the opportunity for struggling artists and filmmakers to bypass corporate, union or not-for-profit funders and their agendas and interests.

  Kickstarter was set up to allow us to put up a pitch — go directly to the public; if people liked it, they could fund it with small donations.

  And it worked like a dream. For my last film, the pro-fracking documentary “FrackNation,” 3,305 people gave $212,000 to make it happen.

  But now it seems that Kickstarter is turning into a bad dream for those who want to wander from the orthodox.

  Now, Kickstarter has always been dominated by projects with liberal, environmental and even ultra-left-wing leanings. That’s no surprise — the arts are dominated by people with such views.

  But Kickstarter promised to be different. Its founder and CEO, Yancey Strickler, was quite clear on this, for example telling viewers of CBS’ “This Morning” that the site is a center for “very diverse ideas.”

  So when I had the idea of making a film about the life and crimes of Kermit Gosnell, the now-notorious Philadelphia abortion doctor, my first idea was to go to Kickstarter — since there was no point going to Hollywood or any establishment media outlet.

  Gosnell was a Philadelphia abortionist who for decades took babies who’d already been born and stabbed them in the neck and cut their spinal cords. He probably killed thousands of infants during his 40-year killing spree.

  In the words of ABC correspondent Terry Moran, Kermit Gosnell was “America’s most successful serial killer.” “

Foundry’s Genevieve Wood Demolishes White House’s Wage Gap Argument

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” In a CNN appearance today, Genevieve Wood, senior contributor to The Foundry, blasted the White House for promoting the myth that women are paid significantly less than men because of their sex, rather than their career or life choices.

“ Instead of celebrating” that men and women with similar jobs and levels of education make around the same, “the White House wants to portray this ‘war on women,’” Wood said on The Lead.

“ Young women today in metropolitan areas, for example, who are childless, single, young women are actually outperforming males in that same category all over the country,” Wood said in her appearance with former White House communications director Anita Dunn. “But the problem with that is, they hear this kind of rhetoric that discourages young women.” “

Kansas Lawmakers OK Bill To Void Local Gun Rules

 

 

Kansas-bill-will-prohibit-local-gun-laws-img

 

 

” Kansas legislators gave final approval Saturday to a bill that would nullify city and county gun restrictions and ensure that it’s legal across the state to openly carry firearms, a measure the National Rifle Association sees as a nationwide model for stripping local officials of their gun-regulating power.

  The House approved the legislation, 102-19, a day after the Senate passed it, 37-2. The measure goes next to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback. He hasn’t said whether he’ll sign it, but he’s a strong supporter of gun rights and has signed other measures backed by the NRA and the Kansas State Rifle Association.

  Kansas law doesn’t expressly forbid the open carrying of firearms, and the attorney general’s office has in the past told local officials that some restrictions are allowed. The Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan., has prohibited the practice, but the bill would sweep any such ban away, except to allow cities and counties to prevent openly carried weapons inside public buildings.”

” An artists collective has unfurled a massive poster showing a child’s face in a heavily bombed area of Pakistan in the hopes that it will give pause to drone operators searching the area for kills.

  According to #notabugsplat, named after the description given to kills on the ground when viewed through grainy video footage, the artists – with help of villagers – unfurled the giant poster in a field in the Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa region of Pakistan.

  The hope is that it will increase awareness of drone operators of human cost, or ‘collateral damage’, when drones are used to attack targets on the ground.”

Students Defend Teacher Accused In Wild Fistfight Caught On Cell Phone Video

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A video showing a teacher and wrestling coach at Santa Monica High School fighting with a student that was captured on cell phone video has gone viral.

  While the teacher and coach has been placed on leave, scores of students took to social media on Saturday to support him.

  In a letter to parents, Sandra Lyon, the superintendent of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District, said the altercation happened in a classroom Friday morning.

“ A deeply disturbing incident involving a teacher and student occurred in a classroom at Santa Monica High School, resulting in the Santa Monica Police Department being called to the campus. A number of videos capturing at least a portion of the incident are circulating, and I can tell you that what I witnessed on one of those videos is utterly alarming,” Lyon wrote.

  Lyon added, “Based on what I have viewed, the kind of physical restraint used by the teacher is unacceptable. I have placed the teacher on leave pending the outcome of an independent investigation.” “

    Only 38.6% Of Jobs Added Under Obama Have Gone To Women

     

     

     

    ADDED JOBS FOR WOMEN-CHART

     

     

    ” Since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, the U.S. economy has employed an additional 3,590,000 people, but only 1,386,000 of those people—or 38.6 percent–have been women.

      At the same time, women represent 46.8 percent of the national civilian labor force. That means women are getting a smaller share of the jobs being added to the economy (38.6 percent) than their representation in the civilian labor force (46.8 percent).

      The percentage of the added jobs that have gone to women is even smaller if measured from the post-recession nadir of employment, which took place in December 2009. Since then, only 37.8 percent of the net additional jobs have gone to women.”

     

     

     

    Compare those dismal numbers with the track record of that “known woman-hater” George W Bush …

     

     

     

    ” When President George W. Bush took office in January 2001, there were 137,778,000 people employed in the United States. Eight years later in January 2009, when Bush left office, there were 142,152,000. Of the 4,374,000 additional people employed during Bush’s full two terms, 1,518,000—or 34.7 percent—were men, and 2,855,000—or 65.3 percent—were women. “

      Warehouse supervisor Gareth Scanlan, of Rugby, Warwicks, who was at the scene, told The Sun on Sunday: “He was trying to get closer or inside.

    “ There was a lot of shouting before the guard went in with his bayonet — it was shocking.

      Sightseer Gareth, 32, added: “The man said, ‘Oh, you’re a big boy now,’ and the guard — who I think was Scottish judging by his accent — said, ‘Yes, I am a big boy.

    Search Engine DuckDuckGo Is Taking On Google By Doing The One Thing They Won’t Do

    DuckDuckGo

     

     

    ” DuckDuckGo bills itself as “the search engine that doesn’t track you”. After the revelations in the US National Security Agency files, that sounds tempting. 

      Named after the playground game duck duck goose, the site is not just banking on the support of people paranoid about GCHQ and the NSA. Its founder, Gabriel Weinberg, argues that privacy makes the web search better, not worse. Since it doesn’t store your previous searches, it does not and cannot present personalized search results. That frees users from the filter bubble – the fear that, as search results are increasingly personalized, they are less likely to be presented with information that challenges their existing ideas.

      It also means that DuckDuckGo is forced to keep its focus purely on search. With no stores or data to tap, it cannot become an advertising behemoth, it has no motivation to start trying to build a social network and it doesn’t get anything out of scanning your emails to create a personal profile.

      Having answered one billion queries in 2013 alone, DuckDuckGo is on the rise. We asked Weinberg about his website’s journey.”

    CIA Official Dies In Apparent Suicide

    ” A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA.

      CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va.

    “ We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing additional information at this time.”

      A source close to the agency said the man who died was a middle manager and the incident occurred after the man jumped from the fifth floor a building in Fairfax County.”

    Gowdy: Dem Rep. Complaints About Six-Figure Salary ‘Laughable’

     

     

     

     

     

     

    ” South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy Friday called it “laughable” that lawmakers are underpaid, blasting veteran Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran complaints about a six-figure salary for a job that’s “priceless.”

    “ I know a lot of people in the world that are underpaid — in fact I live with one, who’s a schoolteacher,” Gowdy told FOX News host Greta Van Susteren in an interview posted by Mediaite.

    “ But members of Congress are incredibly blessed … to have the jobs that we have. Nobody makes us run. Every two years we offer for public office, and if you don’t want to do it then don’t run.”

      Twenty-four-year veteran Moran, who is retiring at the end of the year, groused Thursday lawmakers are “underpaid” and that many cannot “afford to live decently.” 

      Gowdy called that hogwash. “The notion that you can make $174,000 in this country and be underpaid is laughable,” he added. “We are better off than 99.9 percent of the people we claim to work for. And I would be embarrassed to say that — given our job performance and our salary — that we are anything other than grossly overcompensated.” “

       Newsmax has the story on Jim Moran’s “laughable” notion that Congress is “underpaid” and Congressman Gowdy’s absolutely appropriate response .

    mozilla brendan eich

     

     

    ” On Wednesday, I wrote about the Mozilla CEO in trouble for a five-year-old donation to Proposition Eight, the successful California ballot measure that banned gay marriage – if only until America’s robed rulers declared the will of the people to be “unconstitutional”. Brandon Eich is a tech genius: Aside from co-founding Mozilla and creating Firefox, he also invented JavaScript. Apparently, the disgusting homophobic hatey-hatey-hateful belief that marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman is not incompatible with knowing your way around a computer.

      Nevertheless, unlike Hollywood director Brett Ratner, Mr Eich declined to eat gay crow. And so yesterday he was fired. Mozilla’s chairwoman Mitchell Baker issued the usual tortured justification:

    “Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech,” Baker said. “And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.”

      I heard a lot of this stuff during my free-speech battles in Canada. The country’s chief censor, the late Jennifer Lynch, QC, was willing to concede that free speech was certainly a right, but it was merely one in a whole range of competing rights – such as “equality” and “diversity” – that needed to be “balanced”. What the “balancing” boils down to is that you get fired if you are an apostate from the new progressive groupthink. Underneath the agonized prose, Mitchell Baker is a bare-knuckled thug.

    ~ It’s the thuggishness and bullying that ought to disgust people, even those who support gay marriage. My final appearances at National Review Online were a spat with my editor, Jason Lee Steorts, over “two jokes one can no longer tell on American television” that I quoted in a column on Phil Robertson’s suspension for “homophobia”. First, Bob Hope, touring the world in the year or so after the passage of the 1975 Consenting Adult Sex Bill:

    “I’ve just flown in from California, where they’ve made homosexuality legal. I thought I’d get out before they make it compulsory.”

    Second, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin on stage in Vegas throughout the Sixties and Seventies:

    Frank: “How do you make a fruit cordial?”

    Dino: “Be nice to him.”

     

     

     

    As usual Steyn’s take is priceless and a do not miss read.
