Americans fear government more than terror : “According to a pair of recent polls, for the first time since the 9/11 terrorist hijackings, Americans are more fearful their government will abuse constitutional liberties than fail to keep its citizens safe.”

Utah: Stabbing rampage stopped by man with Gun : “A citizen with a gun stopped a knife wielding man as he began stabbing people Thursday evening at the downtown Salt Lake City Smith’s store.”

The More Illegal Immigrants That Go On Food Stamps The More Money JP Morgan Makes : “Recently uncovered documents prove that the Obama administration has been working with the Mexican government to increase the number of illegal immigrants on food stamps, and when more illegal immigrants go on food stamps JP Morgan makes more money. As you will read about below, JP Morgan has made at least 560 million dollars processing Electronic Benefits Transfer cards.”

America has devolved into a nation of welfare zombies living on little more than brain stem function : “If you want to look where America is headed, look no further than the recent activist video released by Mark Dice. He attempted to gather signatures for a petition that demanded America become a Nazi-style Orwellian police state, complete with forced mercury injections of children and door-to-door gun confiscation nationwide. Astonishingly, people gladly signed it!”

Obama: ‘I Am Not the Strapping, Young Muslim Socialist That I Used to Be’ : (CNSNews.com) – Speaking at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Barack Obama “joked” that he is no longer a young Muslim socialist.

US health leader warns of human-to-human H7N9 bird flu : “There is no evidence that the deadly H7N9 bird flu has yet spread between humans in China but health authorities must be ready for the virus to mutate at any time, a top US virologist has warned.”

    #1 Duh! #2 must be a minority since knife wielder was not described.#3 Just makes me think of Jerimiah 10/23 and wonwer how JP Mprgan pulled that off.#4 I am not supprised.#5Now he is just an old Muslim.#6 not another bird flue story.

    • axelsteve:

      You comment on #5 was exactly what I was thinking. As we move through his 2nd term, I think more and more facts will come out.

      • Oh please, Obama isn’t a Muslim, Communists are atheists….

        • axelsteve says:

          Amen JP!

        • Communists perhaps , but Socialists can be anything .

        • worrisome says:

          I think Obama is the perfect chameleon. He is what he is perceived to be by whatever population group he is momentarily cultivating to move him along; get him money; etc.But on top of that, Muslims are told that it is perfectly fine to lie to the infidels and they do it regularly and are exceptionally great at it.

    this might have been reported before but…a 61 y/o man in lebanon, tenn was shot to death in his home by police drug raid on the wrong home. his 70 y/o wife said they didn’t id themselves as police. the homeowner thought it was a home invasion and grabbed his shotgun(thanks joe biden) and was shot by two young cops. the shooting is under investigation but the chief already says it was justified. so basically, your life ain’t worth squat to these cowboys playing wargames with real bullets……similar thing happened here with a deaf elderly lady. surely with tasers and all the other tools at their disposal police could show some restraint from going to the gun first? back when i was a cop i’d have been prosecuted for both of these incidents.

    • worrisome says:

      RR, perhaps the family of the 61 y/o man will have the police label it “justified” but perhaps a civil court will call it what it is and make his family wealthy. That seems to be the way these things go.

      • EB. Esquire says:

        Worrisome is on to something here. Of course the CoP is going to label it justified. To do otherwise, he might as well get out the county’s checkbook and sign a blank check, while handing in his resignation.

        For those of you that hate attorney’s, here is an example of when you’d be on the phone with one so fast, it’d make your head spin.

    • When did that happen, RR? We haven’t heard a thing about it here.

      • riverrider says:

        it just came up on freenorthcarolina, but i think it happened a couple weeks ago. the deaf lady happened last year here. she thought there was an intruder n got her gun, meanwhile a neighbor called police. cops rounded the corner and saw granny w/ her shotgun and since she couldn’t hear, she failed to put the gun down and was shot. inexcusible.

      • With the bought off biased Lamestream Media, you probably will never hear of it other than here.

    • I wouldn’t care if you did identify yourself. I’m still opening up when you kick in the door. You know how easy it would be for a criminal to just yell out police hoping you’ll cooperate in those first few seconds that he needs to gain control.

      If you think a criminal wouldn’t use any means necessary to get what they want then your sadly mistaken. I work with them for a living and I’ve seen their devious ways.

      If it happens to be real cops…. woops, my bad! But your kicking in the wrong door anyways. The only thing I do that would be considered illegal is come to sites like this one… and given time places like this will probably put you on the hot sheet. If that time happens to come… then it’s no longer my bad…. its you got what you deserve.

      • riverrider says:

        sw, i’m with you. there was just such a h/i here where the badguys wore blackedout gear w/police placards. question: if the police are the good guys, why do they cover their faces these days?

        • Because they are tampling on your rights and they don’t want you coming after them on the street. They figure if you don’t know who it is then they are safe. What’s gonna happen is someone will declare open season on the whole force.

      • k. fields says:

        SW -
        That is actually one of my biggest fears here, not from the local sheriff but from the federal agencies that come in on the marijuana raids. A lot of places, like mine, are accessed off of timber company/forest service roads that have minimal markings. It would be very easy for them to be looking to bust one of my neighbors and get turned around and hit my place instead.
        Since my house is very small, I don’t feel I have the option to hide and confirm who it is coming through the door – if that door opens at night or in the wee morning hours without my permission, I will fire first and ask questions later, and probably be killed in response.

        • Backwoods Prepper says:

          KF
          You say you may be killed in response. At least try to take a couple of the idiots with you.

        • worrisome says:

          Rarely do the Feds raid without at the very least notification of the local Sheriff. Since the neighborhood I live in has the same kind of exposure, we as a group have made an effort to get acquainted with not only the Sheriff himself, but other law enforcement so that they know us. It prevents stupid mistakes like this one. In marijuana cases also, they come in the daylight, not at night. Many reasons for that, helicopters, the need to rip up the crop, safety of the officers from tripping around in the jungle, etc.
          If you or if you know your neighbors are making meth, then they may show up at night.
          Can it happen? Sure, risk? Small………………..and even smaller if you make yourself known to law enforcement ahead of time.
          Having said all that, there are bad apples everywhere, law enforcement, law breakers, and just regular people. Stupid is stupid and they live amongst us.

          • If they are looking to serve a warrant chance are good they will show up at night or the wee hours of the morning. They catch you off guard that way and less danger to themselves if your sleeping.

    • I have just one word for cops like that ……………….Auschwitz !!!!
      lets see how they like being on the other end .

      • Followed by the DHS (Darklord Hit Squad)

        • I agree , give them the same treatment the Soviets gave German POWs …………..Most never saw Germany again , and of the low % that eventually were repatriated , some had to wait as late as 1954 ( the amusing part about that , was the fact that the Germany they knew was now split into two nations , and a few were stuck living in east germany under the Russian spere of influence )

    1. I do not fear them in the sense that they think. I just don’t like the those that make up the body of such.
    2. Got to love them knives.
    3. Figures.
    4. I have said before if I may quote myself “this world has gone stupid”
    5. Was that a joke???
    6. I guess all I can say is hope the bird of paradise doesn’t fly up your nose.

  4. 6. With all the bird flu’s you would think that China would be getting short on birds by now.

  5. Just read an interesting article by Joseph Farah about II Chron. 7:14:

      Seems someone has finally said what needed to be said and said it right.

    • Lauri no e says:

      Lantana,

      I know you live in North Texas and everybody please pray for my daughter. The guy that jump off the bridge at 121 and 75 yesterday, my daughter drove up and saw the body in the freeway right after it happen and witness the car behind her running over the body which several people did but she didn’t. She is so upset she couldn’t go to work this morning. My husband her step-father had in the past seen someone ruin over on the freeway and has been very understanding and very helpful to my daughter. Also, pray for this person family and if you listen to the news about this person you will know the situation behind this is bad.

      • Oh my! We did not listen to the news yesterday–how awful!

        Of course we will pray for your daughter, Lauri, and for all involved or affected.

      • What an awful for your dd to see. My prayers for her.

  7. PGCPrepper says:

    O.T. but…

    So Jason Collins coming out as the first NBA player that is gay earns respect and adulation but Tebow openly displaying his faith is ridiculed. Got it.

    • riverrider says:

      kinda like the army discharging chaplins that refuse to do samesex marriages when there’s an extreme shortage of chaplins. tdl has very nearly brought the greatest army to its knees singlehandedly.

      • PGCPrepper says:

        Yep, I know. I was actually synopsizing what was streaming across social media today. It’s quite amazing…that biblical prophecy, ain’t it? Until social media, I had no way of knowing the amount of ignorance and low information voter that exists in this country. I thought it was just the company I keep. LOL. It’s the kind of ignorance that *#&*@% spewed on this site that folks on social media have no life. It’s just plain ignorance. Now that Obama got reelected, you can somewhat quantify it and that is scary and it’s why I’m here.

        I mean I try to laugh off the stupidity when O’Reilly, Leno and others do the interviews on the street and the ignorance is on full display but it’s hard. Keep preppin’

        • Unfortunately, there’s no ready cure for stupidity. I’m beginning to think it’s contagious vs. socially environmental. Sometimes they congregate in herds. Lemming-like.

      • Dont know about you , but I wouldn’t want a turdtamper in the same trench that I am . Just sayin .

  8. and GW bush wasn’t the nazi he wanted to be either..his grandad was tho

    • PGCPrepper says:

      Pardon me but you don’t seem very bright. Some offense intended. By way of example, my granddad did not care for “blacks” because it was ingrained and festered from previous generational influences. He was a beautiful man otherwise but just somewhat ignorant only due to the times and various influences. You may even have some of that in your ancestry; I said, may. So what does Dubya’s granddad have to do with anything mister grasping for straws even if your assertion was true?

      Does my wonderful granddad’s ignorance mean that his grandson has not evolved and at least, as MLK proclaimed, judges a person by the content of his character instead of the color of his/her skin? Do you have the same ideology as your granddad? Do you know that “W” has done more for Africa than any other President while in office and after. Even Jimmy Carter acknowledges this.

      Liberalism is truly a mental disease.

      • The fact that your grandfather did not like blacks , may have more factors than realized . Its more than the color of skin , its culture ( or lack of ) its heritage ( or lack of ) , behavior , etc . etc . …………..we are not the same ………that is liberal propaganda . Not every culture or race is compatible with each other , that is a fact as well as human nature . Its not ignorance , if it is how the liberals say it is , then why is it natural to self segregate ( and people do this everywhere , every race , at every level of society ) and why after the same amount of time has passed in human development , has Africa not progressed like the other cultures have civilization wise if we are all the same ? I saw a funny poster , it had beautiful columns , statues , fountains in a courtyard scene in one half of the picture , and then on the other side it had a mud and grass hut , the caption read : Rome 2000 years ago , Africa now . Dont confuse selective with ignorant . Thats like calling Jews ignorant because they claim Jew as their nationality and not any nation , my gf is jewish , and they consider themselves a separate entity , they are jews ……..nothing else , they are not the same as everybody else and dont want to be . Kind of hard to explain . And yes Liberalism is a disease that results in societal decay .

        • Humanity is the same in the choices made (good vs evil, right
          or wrong, justice or injustice;that’s beyond culture/education/race/wealth,etc…). The capacity for righteousness and wickedness can be found in all people. Anyone who unilaterally labels any 1 group of people as “inferior” or “superior” truly is ignorant. Artificial “labels” (I.e. race, ethnicity) are tools of the power elite to keep people divided, foolish, and easier to control, from ancient civilizations to 21st century America, and the masses keep falling for the same trickery. When will people ever learn?

          • Human nature is human nature , it is ingrained in our very being , its like telling a cat to stop being a cat …….not going to happen no matter how hard the cat tries . People naturally self segregate and no amount of liberal brainwashing is going to turn the cat into a dog . Just sayin .

  9. worrisome says:

    OT? seems I have missed something here………

    • tommy2rs says:

      Probably stands for Off Topic.

    • PGCPrepper says:

      An NBA player, Jason Collins, came out as being gay today and will be featured in the latest edition of Sports Illustrated. The media and the twitterverse is lauding him as a hero, etc. Seriously, a hero? By way of comparison, when Tebow “openly” displays his faith in Jesus Christ on the field he is ridiculed. I could go on as I’m on top of this hypocrisy every day but I’m bored now.

      • worrisome says:

        Ha I get it sorry…………..am slow today :) And your right hypocrisy is everywhere. That is what happens when a population loses it’s moral compass……….

      • Proof that sports figures are poor role models . Ok , he’s gay , what does he want a medal ? There are other sports figures that are murderers , animal abusers ( dog fighting ) , rapists …………and still people continue to give them a free pass .

      • Backwoods Prepper says:

        LOL PGC don’t even get me started. But since you did. they outlaw prayer in schools but give muslims a break to go do their prayers. There are so many heathens in school that if a child says blessing for his meal he is made fun of. I have had about as much as I can stand from our goverment. If they wanted my guns no big deal try to find them I love hide and seek. But when you start infringing my rights to be a christian we are going to have problems.

  10. To me, heroism is helping others when the majority of people are too afraid and/or too selfish to do so (I.e. the man who helped save truck driver Reginald Denny’s life in the 1992 L.A. Riots, or the Akron,OH barber who stopped the armed robbery of an elderly female beautician a few months ago,etc…). True “heroes” and “sheroes” do what’s right BECAUSE it’s right (ordinary individuals doing extraordinary things). Time to celebrate decency instead of “media stars.” Let’s become the heroic human beings we deserve & tell the “Lame Stream Media” to go pack sand!

    benghazi! its beginning to pick up speed. specops and witnesses coming forward, 4 of the victims got a lawyer to help them get whistleblower protection…..gonna be fun to watch ol’ hillary try n squirm outta this one. her and her dufus husband should already be in jail for mogadishu. traitors. she will run in 2016, and i will go wherever she does in va, and chant benghazi! until they take me away.

  12. JP in MT says:

    Just another ammunition availability note:

    One of my local box stores go in some 100 round boxes of 223 FMJ ammo. $43.99/box, limit 2 boxes (1.5 to 2x what it used to be but better than $1.00/round).

    That makes 9mm and 40 S&W along with 223 FMJ’s starting to become available on the open market. Keep this in mind as you look at your ammo needs. DON’T OVERPAY when patience can decrease your costs!

    FYI

    • I agree , but what I worry about , and I guess a lot of folks worry about now, is the fact that they feel if they dont get it now , high or not ………….it may not be available to the public . I understand that is perhaps an overreactive way of thinking , but the way the current Junta is ……………..one cant be sure of many positive things coming out of Wa(swastika)hington. Believe me , I would like nothing better than to see the availability ( in both weapons and ammunition ) return to the way it was before O took office .

      • JP in MT says:

        T.R.:

        I understand. Just keeping people posted on what’s going on out here.

        Ammo has never really been an issue for me. I like to shoot, and once I had a house and was not moving around a lot, I’d just pick it up on sale when I could.

        My DW was saying the other day that she’s glad that I have this “hidden obsession” of “living out of my pantry”. It was turned out for the best, considering our current state of affairs.
