Gun Store gets threatened by City Government.
A tough fight in California…. .
“…..the more experience I had with the Soviet leaders and other heads of state who knew them, the more I began to realize that many Soviet officials feared us not only as adversaries but as potential aggressors who might hurl nuclear weapons at them in a first strike; because of this, and perhaps because of a sense of insecurity and paranoia with roots reaching back to the invasions of Russia by Napoleon and Hitler, they had aimed a huge arsenal of nuclear weapons at us.”
Just wait until some who care less about deterrance obtain nuclear weapons…. .
I’m going to say that, imo, these are not refugees. These are Migrants. Yes, many moving through Syria, and Turkey, in any bid to get to Europe or beyond, they escape armed conflict and threat of death. But there is a distinction between that, and seeking new teeth.
Migrants choose to move not because of a direct threat of persecution or death, but mainly to improve their lives by finding work, or in some cases for education, family reunion, or other reasons. Unlike refugees who cannot safely return home, migrants face no such impediment to return.
Going out on a limb, I am sure the crowd of hale and hearty migrants in the 1st picture, who look healthy, with their selfie stick, are looking for work. They, likely, have not been chased from whatever country they came from. Could be wrong. Likewise, the two pictured in the 2nd picture, well, they certainly found improvement in their lot once they landed in in the UK, with their generous public welfare benefits.
On the other hand, for many, the middle east is a dangerous place. One that should be escaped.
The point is, no-one in most countries from an immigration vs. refugee standpoint is making that distinction. Or they cannot because… . Well, for many reasons I suppose. For a lot of reasons.
Happy labor day.
No, we don’t need to just let everybody in. No. Yes, we need a comprehensive policy. Yes, I’m sorry that there is that much desperation in the world. This child is dead. We are all sad.
What does Obama do about it?
Not a word.
Friends, we are touched by this kind of tragedy. I understand. But this tiger needs to be grabbed by the tail. Where is our foreign policy?
We have none. We are busy giving Iran niceties, but not projecting power in that region.
Big mistake. Go ahead, trust the country to a “community organizer.” Ridiculous.
“To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act,” Spencer wrote. He cited the following Quranic text:
“And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance,” says the Quran. “And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful” (Quran 4:100).
Popular media reports none of this. Its worth paying attention to. We do have a war waged over there. Right now.
Recent open source reports and unverified images of Russian equipment in Syria indicate that the Kremlin may slowly be ramping up its presence in the war-torn country in support of the beleaguered regime of Syrian President Bashir al-Assad.
I’m not saying that we need to throw open our boarders and save all the refugees. Far from it. But some foreign policy activity and direction would be appropriate. We have none.
“If the world’s industrial countries fail to devise effective ways to defend themselves against dangerous electronic assaults, then they will disintegrate within a few years … . American soldiers would not be able to find food to eat nor would they be able to fire a single shot.

Traitors indeed. Obama, Kerry and Biden too.
