Just One Hour From Vancouver There Is A Secret Island Where Everyone Lives Completely Off-Grid

 

 

 

 

” Lasqueti is a small island between Vancouver and Vancouver Island, home to a little known community of off-gridders who take pride in their isolation from both mainstream culture and mainland Canada. In this short documentary film, a journalist from 16×9 News goes to meet some of Lasqueti’s characters and find out more about life on this beautiful land that time forgot.

  With very little industry or economy, most of the residents live simply, taking what they need from the land and having next to no carbon footprint (and little need for money). The 2011 census recorded 426 people living in Lasqueti, who meet up to socialize in the island’s (one) bar and cafe.

  Lasqueti also has a free store, where people can leave or collect items without any monetary exchange. Just one hour by boat from Vancouver island, Lasqueti doesn’t have a tourist industry, booming economy or any industry to speak of, but those who live there say that they enjoy the sense of timelessness, community, and freedom that their home provides.”

Concealed Carry Without A Permit: Will Crime Go Up Or Down?

 

 

 

” This week, lawmakers in New Hampshire, Kansas, Mississippi, and Montana advanced bills that, if made into law, would no longer require special permits to carry concealed weapons in public. Five states already have no concealed permit requirement – part of a broader trend toward so-called constitutional carry.

  Also this week, Sen. John Cornyn (R) of Texas introduced federal legislation that would turn concealed weapons permits into something like state driver’s licenses, which are legal anywhere in the United States. The measure nearly passed a Democrat-controlled Senate last year, meaning it could well end up on President Obama’s desk in 2015.

  With about one gun already in circulation for every American, critics, including many in law enforcement, say constitutional carry will only make life more dangerous. However, so far, studies have failed to conclusively prove or disprove another correlation – between expanded gun carry and the decline in general and violent crime rates that has occurred in the US over the past two decades.

The operative idea for many gun owners: It’s law-abiding citizens, not the state, who should make the decision as to when carrying a gun is reasonable, or necessary. At least anecdotally, a lot of people who proclaim to be open or concealed carriers actually holster a gun only rarely, or arm themselves only for nighttime commutes or journeys into what they perceive as dangerous areas.

“ What I’ve seen is, for many people it’s more about, ‘I want to be the one to make the decision [about whether to carry], and I have that right,’ ” says Brian Anse Patrick, a professor at the University of Toledo in Ohio, concealed-carry instructor, and author of the upcoming book, “Propagunda.” “While the doors to gun carry are opening more and more, it all still comes down to practicality. A lot of people with permits, who have gone to classes, don’t follow through [with carry]. You have to be a really determined person to go through this whole thing.” “

States Rise Up Against Washington

 

 

 

 

 

” State legislators around the country have introduced more than 200 bills aiming to nullify regulations and laws coming out of Washington, D.C., as they look to rein in the federal government.

  The legislative onslaught, which includes bills targeting federal restrictions on firearms, experimental treatments and hemp, reflects growing discord between the states and Washington, state officials say.

“ You have a choice,” said Kentucky state Rep. Diane St. Onge (R). “To sit back and not do anything or say anything and let overregulation continue — or you have the alternative choice to speak up about it and say, ‘We know what you are doing or intend to do and we do not think that it is constitutional and we as a state are not going to stand for it.’ ”

  Last month, St. Onge introduced H.B. 13 to nullify federal gun control laws within Kentucky state lines. Similar legislation has been introduced in seven other states.

“ This law is saying the sheriff and those under him do not have to follow federal regulations,” she said.

  Friction between the states and the federal government dates back to the nation’s earliest days. But there has been an explosion of bills in the last year, according to the Los Angeles-based Tenth Amendment Center, which advocates for the state use of nullification to tamp down on overzealous regulation.

People are becoming more and more concerned about the overreach of the federal government,” said center spokesman Mike Maharrey. “They feel the federal government is trying to do too much, it’s too big and it’s getting more and more in debt.” “

Gunman Knocked Down In Attempted Car-Jacking

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Footage has been revealed of an armed man trying to escape a high-speed police chase by hijacking a car on a busy motorway.

  Two men had been tracked by police from Queensland, Australia, on a 93-mile (150km) police chase from near Brisbane through to New South Wales.

  Police halted the blue Mitsubishi Lancer with road spikes at Tweed Heads before one of the men fired his semi-automatic handgun at police.

  He then tried to shoot at a passing car, forcing it to stop suddenly and the car behind it to plough into its back, sending belongings across the busy Pacific Motorway.

  Both drivers appeared unhurt.

  Apparently trying to hijack another car, the 32-year-old pointed his gun at another vehicle, which struck him, knocking the gun from his hand.”

In Illinois, Concealed Carry Of Guns Has Quiet First Year; Expansion Sought

 

 

Concealed carry in Illinois (infographic)

” Keith Hearn was getting out of his car in front of his home in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood when, as he tells it, police pulled up and told him he had committed a minor traffic offense.

  Hearn, 34, has a concealed-carry license and said he voluntarily told the officers he had a handgun on him. Nonetheless, he said officers arrested him and took him to their station, claiming his gun was partly showing. After checking, he said, police found the concealed-carry law allows a gun to be “mostly” concealed, and let him go without charges.

” I was disgusted,” Hearn said. “Why was I arrested, handcuffed in front of my neighborhood, when I didn’t break any laws?”

  Hearn is among about 92,000 people who got licenses to carry a hidden gun in public last year in Illinois — the last state in the union to legalize “concealed carry,” as it’s called. Since it went into effect more than a year ago, the law has prompted neither the rash of shootings that opponents feared, nor a wave of crimes prevented through the intervention of armed citizens.

  Instead, there are ongoing disputes over who should be allowed to carry a gun, and where. Those battles are being played out in the courts and occasionally, on the streets, as in Hearn’s account, which Chicago police would not comment on or confirm.

  Some citizens who were turned down for concealed-carry permits say they are being denied their constitutional right by a secretive state licensing board. Yet some law enforcement officials warn that dangerous people are being allowed to walk around with loaded weapons.”

Southgate Man, 74, Shoots Man Breaking Into House

 

 

 

Southgate Home Invader Killed

” A home invasion ended in violence Thursday morning when a 74-year-old homeowner shot and killed an armed suspect who had broken into his home.

  The incident occurred at 4:47 a.m. in the 15000 block of Flanders, according to Chief Jeff Smith.

“ The defendant entered the home through a window and had a firearm with him,” Smith said. “The house was occupied by a man and his wife. He had a legal firearm and confronted the intruder. He ended up shooting him and the defendant died at the scene.”

  Police are working to identify the invader and have declined to release the names of the homeowners.

“ As he walked through the house, the home invader confronted him with his (handgun),” Coombs said. “(The homeowner) shot the home invader, and the home invader died here on the scene.” “

Why Elites Think ‘Pro-America’ Is So Last Century

 

 

 

 

 

” Ibn Warraq, renowned scholar of Islam, recently spoke at Yale about U.S. foreign policy:

“ We are engaged in a war of ideas, with our principal enemy: an ideology….  Islamic terrorism is not caused by poverty, lack of education, sexual deprivation…or lack of economic opportunity…. There are two kinds of Jihad: terrorism, and slow penetration of Western institutions subverting Western laws and customs from within. Ignorance, naivety, arrogance, political correctness, sheer laziness, sentimentality…have led to Islamic successes in penetrating the universities, from the Voice of America, the Pentagon…PBS, to the universities and colleges where Islamic propaganda is shamelessly and openly disseminated.”

  He likens the battle against Islamic radicals to the Cold War. But, he is mistaken in one sense. It was a proud and patriotic America that confronted the USSR. In the decades following World War II, most people in the United States were happy to celebrate our contributions to the defeat of Nazism and the liberation and restoration of Europe. Americans believed in themselves and their country.

  Today, we have a president, and a younger generation, that views the U.S. through a different prism – one clouded by Vietnam, racial discord, and now the war with Iraq. It is “cool” to distrust and disdain the U.S., and the media feeds the skepticism. In covering the U.S. engagement in Afghanistan, for instance, news organizations have seldom reported on the military’s successes in building schools and providing basic services in that country; they prefer to zero in on instances of civilian casualties and misdeeds by our soldiers. The coverage leads us to doubt our military, and our morals.”

How Did ‘Zombie Cat’ Escape His Grave?

 

 

 

 

 

 

” There’s a new theory that could explain how a cat, presumed dead and buried, somehow clawed out of his grave and appeared at the neighbor’s house five days later.

” We have two cats and they play together all the time and they roam around with each other,” Ellis Hutson, the cat’s owner, explained. “He might have went looking for his brother and dug him up — but I have no idea.”

  Hutson has been confused and perplexed since last Monday when he found his black-and-white cat named Bart curled up in a ball and covered in blood in the middle of the road.

” He was stiff, wasn’t moving, no sign of life,” he said.

  Hutson — too distraught to grab the shovel himself — asked his buddy David Liss to take Bart to his final resting place.

” As far as I know he wasn’t breathing,” Liss explained. “I looked at it, and I looked at it, and I didn’t see the chest moving up and down or anything and I said, ‘you know, well look at the blood, it’s dead.’ “

  Liss said he put Bart in the ground under about a foot of dirt, right off the road from where Hutson found him “dead”.

  But Bart wasn’t dead.

  Five days later, the cat showed up at neighbor Dusty Allbritton’s home, and she called Hutson.”

Fearless Shopkeeper Has A Lightning Fast Way To Disarm An Armed Robber Who Aims A Gun At His Face

 

 

 

” That’s precisely what the shopkeeper should have done, but it took stones to do it. This man has a different mindset than most Americans. He’s witnessed firsthand the violence in Iraq. It’s an everyday occurrence there and you don’t stand around being petrified. You live and you survive by listening to your survival instincts. He reacted without hesitation, snatching the gun away from the criminal before he could fire it and that probably saved his life. The thug was sticking the gun directly in his face, but there was no fear. There was just instinctual reaction.”

D.C. Grants First Concealed Carry Permits, Ending Decades-Long Prohibition

 

 

 

” The Metropolitan Police Department has granted its first concealed carry permits, effectively ending the longstanding ban on carrying handguns in public that was deemed unconstitutional by a federal judge last year.

  According to an MPD official, eight concealed carry permits have been granted and 11 denied since the department started accepting permit applications in late October. Since then, 69 people applied for the permits, though three were cancelled at the request of the applicant. Of the 66 completed applications, 34 were filed by D.C. residents and 32 by non-residents.

  Last July, Judge Frederick Scullin ruled that the city’s ban on carrying handguns — which had been in effect for 40 years — was an unconstitutional infringement on the Second Amendment. It followed a 2008 Supreme Court ruling that overturned the city’s ban on handgun ownership; since then, over 3,000 handguns have been registered for use in the home.

  Scullin stayed his ruling for 90 days, giving the D.C. Council time to draft and approve emergency legislation allowing residents and non-residents alike to apply for concealed carry permits. A permanent version of the bill was approved in December

The city’s rules also restrict where a gun-owner can carry their gun. Public transportation, schools, government buildings, bars, stadiums, and hospitals are off limits, as are protests and an area around the White House. Individuals carrying handguns also have to remain 1,000 feet away from U.S. or foreign dignitaries.

  After an application is filed, MPD has 90 days to accept or reject it. City rules prohibit the department from releasing any specific information on the applicants or the reasons they cite in their applications, but one official with knowledge of the permitting process said that some of the applicants who were rejected simply cited the Second Amendment as a reason for requesting a concealed carry permit.”

Panicked Super Rich Buying Boltholes With Private Airstrips To Escape If Poor Rise Up

 

 

 

 

” Super rich hedge fund managers are buying ‘secret boltholes’ where they can hideout in the event of civil uprising against growing inequality, it has been claimed.

  Nervous financiers from across the globe have begun purchasing landing strips, homes and land in areas such as New Zealand so they can flee should people rise up.

  With growing inequality and riots such as those in London in 2011 and in Ferguson and other parts of the USA last year, many financial leaders fear they could become targets for public fury.

  Robert Johnson, president of the Institute of New Economic Thinking, told people at the World Economic Forum in Davos that many hedge fund managers were already planning their escapes.

  He said: “I know hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway.” “

 

 

   We would guess that the likelihood of the “poor” rising up is less a motivation for the rich man’s prepping than is the possibility of the entire economic “house of cards” collapsing .

 Leatherman Launches Fashion Band With 25 Tools – And You Can Even Use It As A Watch Strap

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Forget carrying a Swiss Army Knife –  if you want to be prepared, all you really need is a bracelet.

  Portland-based Leatherman Tool Group is about to launch wrist wear that hides 25 different tools.

  Dubbed ‘Tread’, the bracelet is made of 17-4 stainless steel links which each hide two or three items such as wrenches and screwdrivers.”

Leatherman plans to start selling the bracelet sometime this summer, and also says it will include it in a watch design. No official pricing is offered on the tool, but one blog post claims it could be in the region of $200 (£130)

” ‘ The idea originated on a trip to Disneyland with my family,’ said Leatherman’s president Ben Rivera, who was an engineer with the company for 22 years. ‘ I was stopped at the gate by security for carrying a knife, when what they had actually seen was my Skeletool.

  I was unwilling to give it up, so they made me take it all the way back to my hotel room.’ ‘ I knew there had to be another way to carry my tools with me that would be accepted by security,’ he said.”

Sunday Marks The Premiere Of The Three Part Mini-Series “Sons Of Liberty” From The History Channel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SONS OF LIBERTY, the three-night, six-hour event, follows a defiant and radical group of young men–Sam Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Dr. Joseph Warren–as they band together in secrecy to change the course of history and make America a nation.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Sons of Liberty sparked a revolution, the cast depicting them includes: Ben Barnes(The Chronicles of Narnia) as Sam Adams, a natural born leader with charisma and a penchant for mischief; Ryan Eggold (The Black List) as Dr. Joseph Warren, a doctor and man of conscience and integrity; Michael Raymond-James (Jack Reacher, Terriers, True Blood) as Paul Revere, a veteran who wholeheartedly joins forces with Sam Adams; Rafe Spall(Prometheus, Life of Pi) as John Hancock, the wealthiest man in Boston at the time; andHenry Thomas (E.T. The Extraterrestrial, Gangs of New York, Legends of the Fall) as John Adams, a lawyer and the conservative, smart cousin of Sam Adams. Additionally, Marton Csokas (Equalizer, The Lord of the Rings, Rogue) plays the ferocious General Thomas Gage who is sent to handle the colonial unrest in Boston; Emily Berrington (24: Live Another Day) as Margaret Gage; Jason O’Mara (The Good Wife, Terra Nova, Life on Mars) as General George Washington and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad, Under the Dome, Men, Women & Children) as the brilliant yet mischievous diplomat Benjamin Franklin.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Calling themselves the Sons of Liberty, they light the spark that ignited our revolution. While many of their names have become legendary, this group of young rebels didn’t start off as noble patriots. They were a new generation of young American men from varied backgrounds, struggling to find purpose in their lives. They were looking for equality, but they found something greater: Independence.”

Rand Paul Releases Own State Of The Union Speech

 

 

 

 

 

” After President Obama gave his State of the Union speech Tuesday night, Senator Rand Paul released his own State of the Union speech online.

  Paul starts by saying, “All is not well in America,” and from here he outlines what he thinks is wrong in the country.

  The first thing Paul says is needed in America is “new leadership.” He does not mean get rid of the president, rather this is a call for a limit to the number of terms congressmen and other high ranking officials can serve. Currently, the U.S. has 11 people in the House or Senate who have served 35+ years as political leaders. Paul says by eliminating the limitless number of terms these leaders can have, new blood will flow into Washington, bringing fresh and new ideas.”

Papa John’s Pizza Stands By Employee Who Shot Armed Robber In Self Defense

 

 

 

 

 

” Papa John’s Pizza is standing by a pizza delivery woman who opened fire Sunday on an armed robber in an act of self defense.

  The pizza franchise told FoxNews.com Thursday the employee, who hasn’t been named, will not be fired from the company. 

  The employee was making a delivery in Decatur, Ga., Sunday night when a man approached her vehicle, forcing her onto the ground at gunpoint, according to the DeKalb County Police Department. The woman, who had a gun in her pocket, was able to fire at the man while on the ground — striking the alleged assailant, identified as 24-year-old Donquaz Stevenson, in the face.

  Stevenson was later found in a neighbor’s yard and arrested, according to police, who said the pizza delivery might have been a setup. Local media outlets reported that a second suspect carjacked the delivery woman’s silver 2000 Honda Accord and remains on the run.

  Stevenson was charged with armed robbery and was being treated for a gunshot wound at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. “

Yosemite Climbers Expect To Reach Top Of El Capitan On Wednesday

 

 

 

 

 

” Two climbers trying to become the first to scale a 3,000-foot (900-meter) face of the El Capitan rock formation in Yosemite National Park in California without bolts or climbing tools believe they will reach the top on Wednesday, representatives said.

  Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson, who began their latest attempt to conquer El Capitan on Dec. 27, started climbing the final 11 “pitches” of the so-called Dawn Wall on Tuesday, spokeswoman Jess Clayton said.

  The Dawn Wall of El Capitan is divided into 32 climbing pitches, which are varying lengths of rock that the climbers are trying to master with only their hands and feet. The wall has been scaled before, first by legendary climber Warren Harding in 1970, but never before without climbing tools.”

ObamaCare: Young Adults, Unsubsidized Shun Exchanges

 

 

 

 

 

” One number stands out from ObamaCare’s second enrollment season: Among those signing up for coverage via Healthcare.gov, 87% have qualified for subsidies.

  That’s even higher than the 85% subsidized share of the 8 million people who signed up for ObamaCare exchange plans during the first enrollment season that wrapped up last April.

  The data are early and lack key details, but suggest that the unsubsidized may be shunning the exchanges.

  That’s a surprise: The Congressional Budget Office had projected that 1 in 3 of this year’s new enrollees will earn too much to qualify for premium subsidies.

  Another red flag is the lagging participation among young adults: Just 24% of the 3.4 million new and renewing sign-ups via Healthcare.gov through Dec. 15 are in the 18-to-34 age group. That’s down from 28% among the first 8 million to sign up for coverage for 2014, and far below the 40% that is consistent with the young-adult share of the potential exchange population.”

Man Drives Two Hours With Knife Lodged In His Head

” A Brazilian man who was stabbed in the head with an 11-inch knife survived the attack and drove himself two hours to a hospital.

  Juacelo Nunes, 30, said he was arguing with a man at a party in Agua Branca when the other man summoned three friends to help him attack Nunes.

  Nunes said he was stabbed in the throat, shoulder and chest before the knife, which bears an 11-inch blade, was embedded in his head.

  The knife missed Nunes’ left eye and passed through his mouth to the right side of his jaw.

” I did not see the moment of the stabbing, but at no time fainted and remained conscious even with pain,” he said.

” I thought I would die and only came to believe when I saw what happened to me, because if someone told me I would not have believed it.”

  Nunes said he drove for two hours to a hospital in Teresina, 60 miles from Agua Branca.”
