Adults should know better. Pure unadulterated disinformation horseshit.

Ah, yes, the internet, where anyone can pretend to be anything and a willing suspension of disbelief seems to come with every other keyboard. This is total crap:
ALERT!!!!! ATTENTION ALL MILITIA, OATHKEEPERS and PATRIOT GROUPS. As of 9:00 A.M. Central time I was contacted by the FBI to activate every Militia and Patriot group in the U.S. for an eyes and ears OP over the 4th of July holiday for possible terrorist attacks( ISIS in nature). The threat level is very high. We need people to monitor the internet and groups to monitor all activities nationwide. The following is the procedure in which we participate. I have already contacted many prominent Patriot and Militia leaders.
The fact that the FBI has issued a warning for 4 July is common knowledge. Claiming personal contact with the Fibbies as if it gives you legitimacy (a contradiction in itself) to issue a breathless post that spooks the uninformed is ludicrous. The FBI has in the past tried to "reach out" to militia leaders but only when they're a. worried about their own hides (a la Freeman Standoff) or b. trying to shake somebody's tree to see what falls out. If this guy actually has a personal relationship with an FBI agent, were I him I wouldn't be admitting it.
In this environment, it always pays to be watchful. In fact, you're more likely to observe a predatory FBI SWAT team at any given time than you are an ISIS lone wolf. But if you see a Jihadi on the attack, do us all a favor and shoot the bastard then call the local cops for cleanup. Don't legitimize the FBI, even by hyperventilated rumor.

That didn't take long. Here they come. "If you thought the cultural purge over the Confederate flag was breathtaking -- wait until you see what LGBT activists do with Christians."

Thomas Sowell on "Supreme Court Disasters."

When any branch of government can exercise powers not authorized by either statutes or the Constitution, "we the people" are no longer free citizens but subjects, and our "public servants" are really our public masters. And America is no longer America. The freedom for which whole generations of Americans have fought and died is gradually but increasingly being taken away from us with smooth and slippery words.

Haka: This is how to mourn a warrior.

My son sent me the video below of a recent Haka by a New Zealand military unit.
This is the translation:
We are ready, yes we are ready If we the warriors of the Second First should go to war Beware enemy, beware! Those of you who wish to do battle with us, where are you? Come stand face to face with us and we will strike you down Be strong warriors of the Second First We will gather the energy from the Earth to strengthen our bodies to destroy our enemies Rise up, soldiers of Second First to the call of battle We will fight and destroy our enemies and send them to the dark pits of hell!
Haka is used throughout New Zealand by many, not only Māori, to demonstrate their collective thoughts. There is a haka for each of the Services, as well as the Defence Force. Units with the NZ Army have their own haka. This video shows the soldiers of 2/1 RNZIR Battalion performing their Unit haka, powerfully acknowledging the lives and feats of their fallen comrades as they come onto the Unit's parade ground. It is also an emotive farewell for they will leave via the waharoa (the carved entrance way) for the very last time.
Haka --sometimes termed a posture dance could also be described as a chant with actions. There are various forms of haka; some with weapons some without, some have set actions others may be 'free style.' Haka is used by Māori (indigenous people of New Zealand) for a myriad of reasons; to challenge or express defiance or contempt, to demonstrate approval or appreciation, to encourage or to discourage, to acknowledge feats and achievements, to welcome, to farewell, as an expression of pride, happiness or sorrow. There is almost no inappropriate occasion for haka; it is an outward display of inner thoughts and emotions. Within the context of an occasion it is abundantly clear which emotion is being expressed.

The "T" Word.

Treason, noun: the crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.
Collectivist Jay Michaelson rends his garments, gnashes his teeth and wails, "Did The Four Dissenting Justices In Gay Marriage Case Just Suggest Treason?"
In other words, the majority is arrogant, unrestrained, and thus not to be respected. It has an “extravagant conception of judicial supremacy.” “Those who founded our country would not recognize the majority’s conception of the judicial role.” And “The Court’s accumulation of power does not occur in a vacuum. It comes at the expense of the people. And they know it.” Why not just tell the Religious Right to buy pitchforks and blowtorches?
"Pitchforks and blowtorches?" Pitchforks and torches, perhaps. These are the hallmarks of peasant mobs. But blowtorches? Of course, blowtorches are often used by the secret police agencies of collectivist dictatorships as interrogation tools, so perhaps he's just falling back on the familiar.
Count De Monet - Sir, the peasants are revolting!
King Louis - You said it. They stink on ice.
-- History of the World, Part One.
But, I don't think we need a Supreme Court justice to tell us to buy pitchforks and torches, if that's what he means. Besides, that's so 16th Century (although he betrays himself with this insulting allusion to the religious folks of this country as peasantry). Today's peasants are more likely to use .30-06 deer rifles with much greater direct effect upon the tyrants' continued access to oxygen. Nor do we need anyone to tell us that this past week's events constitute the dictionary definition of treason to the Founders' Republic.
Of course the Founders, who were themselves considered traitors by the King for mere "treasonable utterances," were very careful to limit the meaning of the term in the Constitution:
The Treason Clause traces its roots back to an English statute enacted during the reign of Edward III (1327–1377). This statute prohibited levying war against the king, adhering to his enemies, or contemplating his death. Although this law defined treason to include disloyal and subversive thoughts, it effectively circumscribed the crime as it existed under the Common Law. During the thirteenth century, the crime of treason encompassed virtually every act contrary to the king's will and became a political tool of the Crown. Building on the tradition begun by Edward III, the Founding Fathers carefully delineated the crime of treason in Article III of the U.S. Constitution, narrowly defining its elements and setting forth stringent evidentiary requirements.
Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.
The Treason Clause applies only to disloyal acts committed during times of war. Acts of dis-loyalty during peacetime are not considered treasonous under the Constitution. Nor do acts of Espionage committed on behalf of an ally constitute treason. For example, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were convicted of espionage, in 1951, for helping the Soviet Union steal atomic secrets from the United States during World War II. The Rosenbergs were not tried for treason because the United States and the Soviet Union were allies during World War II.
Under Article III a person can levy war against the United States without the use of arms, weapons, or military equipment. Persons who play only a peripheral role in a conspiracy to levy war are still considered traitors under the Constitution if an armed rebellion against the United States results. (Emphasis supplied, MBV) -- Free Legal Dictionary.
This definition has not stopped the collectivists from calling US traitors and demanding we be punished for simple free speech. See: "GOP Tea Party Traitors to the Constitution Must Be Prosecuted to the Fullest Extent of the Law" and "Robert Reich to Tea Party: Americans Don't Like Traitors to Our System of Government" and Tea Party Traitors. I have been personally labeled as a "traitor to his country" by collectivists of all stripes from communists to Nazis over the past 20 years. I am, I suppose, a traitor to THEIR country, but not to the Founders' Republic. The same cannot be said of them.
Which brings me back to that definition of Constitutional treason above: "Persons who play only a peripheral role in a conspiracy to levy war are still considered traitors under the Constitution if an armed rebellion against the United States results." There is no doubt that our collectivist enemies are engaged in a conspiracy to overthrow the Constitution and the rule of law it codifies. As I have said and written many times, the Founders would declare them to be domestic enemies of the Constitution. It is they who are the revolutionaries in rebellion against the Founders' Republic. And there is no doubt that they seek, by force of arms if necessary, to accomplish their purpose. It is perhaps ironic that they have, by their successful, infinitely patient sedition, achieved control over the government's arms to work their conspiracy upon the liberty, property and lives of the people. I'm not sure the Founders expected that when they crafted the Constitution but it is nonetheless true.
So, who are the "traitors," them or us? That will be decided by the outcome of the civil war they seek to start.

THREE HUNDRED AND FORTY SEVEN MILLION! (And that was as of 3 years ago.) Hey, Bloomberg, take a gander at THIS. So, you think you're going to disarm us, eh?

Herschel Smith: "Words No Longer Have Meaning."

As I had stated to someone else this weekend, you have the political right to advocate what you want, but God will judge us – individually and collectively – for our choices. But constitutionally, the court has absolutely no business bossing the states around. This ruling – and many more like it – marks the end of the state. The grand experiment in states as the laboratories of democracy is finished. It failed, and not because it couldn’t have worked. Evil men vandalized the experiment.

And: John Roberts, Intimidated by the Left?
This is a dangerous game, but it may have worked. Conservatives feel betrayed by Roberts, as perhaps they should. But it’s possible that when we look back on the first 15 years of the 21st century, it will be remembered as the time the Democrats vowed to blow up this country’s democratic institutions unless they got their way. And that’s not “a very good thing.”
And: "We can marry barn yard animals, and throw grandma out on the streets to operate a jack hammer to pay her fair share into the welfare system, where the militant members of society while away their time just hanging out, and burning shit down."
I think it’s time to have a show down while we still have any semblance of a country left. Obama Care rip offs, and degenerate, unnatural definitions of marriage, were not lawfully enacted statutes. They do not serve our country for the common good, so I would advise all veterans to stand by. They did not rescind our oath to protect the people from all enemies -- both foreign and domestic, unless of course, you like living under a totalitarian cesspool.

All right! Now we're training smugglers in the public schools. COOL! In defiance of Michelle Obama's nanny state fascism, kids are smuggling pepper and salt into the schools, and selling it.
