Allen West: America On Verge Of Race War?…

 

 

 

” West’s fellow black conservative Thomas Sowell thinks we are, but you would never know it judging by the media’s refusal to report about the epidemic of black-on-white violence.

Via Allen West:

I hold Thomas Sowell in very high esteem because he’s willing to focus on issues which the mainstream media does not and will not report on. In this most recent case, it’s black mob violence against whites.

In fact, Sowell fears we are on the verge of a race war:

Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun and have in fact been going on for some years. But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

North Korea To Put American Kenneth Bae On Trial

 


” The announcement focused attention back on Pyongyang after a near two-week lull in North Korea’s sabre-rattling rhetoric.

Kenneth Bae (Pae Jun-ho), a 44-year-old ethnic Korean with US citizenship, was arrested last November as he accompanied five Europeans into the Rason Special Economic Zone, a pilot region on the border of China and Russia which is open to foreign companies.

Since then, almost nothing has been heard of him. In January, Bill Richardson, the governor of New Mexico, and Eric Schmidt, the chief executive of Google, travelled to North Korea to try to secure his release but were not allowed to see him.

Mr Bae’s crime is not clear. However, the Korean Central News Agency announced on Saturday that a “preliminary inquiry” had been completed and that Mr Bae had “admitted that he committed crimes aimed to topple the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea with hostility toward it”. “

 

 

 

 

 

Woman Born Without Arms Is Both A Black Belt And A Licensed Pilot

 

 

” Earning a black belt in the marital arts or being issued a pilot’s license are both substantial accomplishments that take years to achieve. But 30-year-old Jessica Cox has achieved both despite being born without arms.

Cox first rose to fame in 2008 when the Guinness World Records recognized her for becoming the first person without arms to fly an airplane.”

… ‘Better to die the death of a hero
than it is to live the life of a coward’ [VIDEO]

” “I was contacted by military personnel yesterday, who
told me an interesting fact. And that is any consulate
anywhere in the world is American soil,” Woods said.
“Any attack on an American consulate is an attack on
American soil. There were American citizens that were
attacked for seven hours on American soil a couple
thousand miles away from Washington, D.C.” (RELATED

White House of murder)
“My question of the president would be this: Your Honor,
I respect your office as president. But if this attack on
American citizens, on American soil, happened 2,000
miles away from Washington, D.C. — say in Los Angeles
or in Seattle — would you have waited seven hours
before you sent the first airplane? Would you have
waited seven hours until the attack was over? Would you
have waited a couple of days until you had all of the
videos and all the information before you responded in a
responsible military way?” ”

Jacksonian and Then Some

Michael Barone on the influence of the Scots/Irish Jacksonian heritage on presidential politics .

” Let me add a couple of thoughts to Sean Trende’s excellent Real Clear Politics column on Barack Obama’s weakness in the Scots-Irish zone of America. Trende uses Obama’s weak showings in the West Virginia, Kentucky and Arkansas primaries this month to make the larger point that this region, where Bill Clinton was competitive in 1992 and 1996, has now become very heavily Republican, offsetting or more than offsetting gains Democrats have made in the Mountain West states of New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado and (maybe) Arizona.

The Scots-Irish zone represents parts of America settled by the Scots-Irish who came across the Atlantic in huge numbers in the years 1763-75, just before the Revolution, and settled in the Appalachian ridges from southwest Pennsylvania to Upcountry South Carolina and then for three generations in a sort of drang nach southwest settled country going southwest and west to Texas and Oklahoma. The Scots-Irish zone is plainly visible if you make a map highlighting the counties where Hillary Clinton thrashed Barack Obama by the widest margins in 2008 (this also includes Hispanic counties in south Texas) or a map showing the counties where John McCain won a higher percentage of the vote in 2008 than George W. Bush had in 2004. There’s a big overlap here with the counties where, in response to the Census Bureau’s question about ancestry, the largest number of responses were “American.”

This group has historically played a much larger role in the shaping of America than would be expected of a group of it’s size . They have been , as a rule , among the first to fight for America and tend to be of a ” leave us to our own devices ” type of attitude . Not generally fans of big government . For further background I highly recommend James Webb’s ” Born Fighting , How the Scots-Irish Shaped America ”
