The Sons of Liberty

A Home Run For The History Channel

By Gary;

Yes!  At last an outlet for my hatred of the British monarchy and Imperialism.

The History Channel's three night Sons of Liberty was a near total success for me.  What was there not to like? British flags being burned, Redcoats shot and the Tea Party.

Like any movie based on historical events the writers and directors have to adjust the story telling for the allowed time, budget and drama.  Most dialog in these films is a fabrication.  The better productions, like Troy and HBO's Rome, try to stay true to events and characters.

With the Sons of Liberty the History Channel was faithful to events.  But better yet, they gave colonial Boston a grittiness and realism.  The "lower orders" of Boston were well written and acted.  There could have been additional plot development on events, but the film makers were trying to cram a long timeline and mountains of events into three 40 minute shows.  They did well with the limitations imposed on them.

Ben Barnes played a fantastic, no compromising Sam Adams.  Marton Csokas (of XXX and Lord of the Rings) played British General Thomas Gage as a total asshole, which is just about right.

TV Ratings  -  As usual the mouth-breathing American Sheeple proved they want nothing to do with anything that might educate them.  Out of 320 million Americans only 3.2 million viewers tuned in on this prime time Sunday night program.  The Monday night installment dropped down to only 2.8 million viewers.  Tuesday was 3.2 million.

Well, if the mouth-breathers have no interest in freedom from oppression and the birth of their own country then screw 'em.  I for one totally enjoyed the program.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Vagina Steaming - "It’s sorcery for your vagina."

"Basically, it’s sorcery for your vagina."

- - - A totally retarded story that can only be found among the self-absorbed Hollywood Elite.

(LA Times)  -  Leave it to Gwyneth Paltrow to suggest a Must-Do Thing that we didn't even know was a Thing People Get Done.

We're talking about the intentional steam-treatment of one's lady parts.

"The real golden ticket here is the Mugworth V-Steam," she writes at her Goop website, talking up a holistic spa in Santa Monica. "You sit on what is essentially a mini-throne, and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al."

And to think, up till now we were feeling pretty good about figuring out how to clean our home office. Maybe how to freshen up the interior of our car.

"It is an energetic release — not just a steam douche — that balances female hormone levels," Paltrow explains. "If you're in L.A., you have to do it."

Want to learn more about what a V-steam entails? Laura Hooper Beck has kindly journeyed to Santa Monica for the experience and written about it in detail for Fast Company.

"Basically," Beck writes, "it’s sorcery for your vagina."

ISIS Commander says funding came through the US

Ask Yourself a Question

  • Weapons and ammo re-supplies are enormously expensive and very hard to get. 
  • So a Question:  If Russia and Iran are arming the government of Syria, then who provided the mountains of weapons to get ISIS started in their attacks on Syria and Iraq? . . . . Come on now, let's all spell it out together: C-I-A.

ISLAMABAD  -  Yousaf al Salafi – allegedly the Pakistan commander of Islamic State (IS) or Daish – has confessed during investigations that he has been receiving funds through the United States.

Law enforcing agencies on January 22 claimed that they arrested al Salafi, along with his two companions, during a joint raid in Lahore. However, sources revealed that al Salafi was actually arrested sometimes in December last year and it was only disclosed on January 22.

“During the investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organisation in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria,” a source privy to the investigations revealed to Daily Express on the condition of anonymity.

Al Salafi is a Pakistani-Syrian, who entered Pakistan through Turkey five months ago. Earlier, it was reported that he crossed into Turkey from Syria and was caught there. However, he managed to escape from Turkey and reached Pakistan to establish IS in the region.

Sources said al Salafi’s revelations were shared with the US Secretary of State John Kerry during his recent visit to Islamabad. “The matter was also taken up with CENTCOM chief General Lloyd Austin during his visit to Islamabad earlier this month,” a source said.

Al Salafi also confessed that he – along with a Pakistani accomplice, reportedly imam of a mosque – was recruiting people to send them to Syria and was getting around $600 per person from Syria.

“The US has been condemning the IS activities but unfortunately has not been able to stop funding of these organisations, which is being routed through the US,” a source said.

“The US had to dispel the impression that it is financing the group for its own interests and that is why it launched offensive against the organisation in Iraq but not in Syria,” he added.

There are reports that citizens from Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India besides other countries are being recruited by the IS to fight in Syria. Posters and wall chalking in favour of the IS have also been seen in various cities in Pakistan.

20% of U.S. children are on food stamps

The number of children in the United States relying on food stamps for a meal spiked to 16 million last year, according federal data, signaling a lopsided economic recovery in which lower income families are still lagging behind.

The roughly one in five children who received food stamps in 2014 surpassed pre-recession levels, when one in eight or 9 million children were on food stamps, according to the U.S. Census survey of American families released on Wednesday.

Other findings of the survey show a rapidly changing America in which more children are being raised in single-parent homes and more young people are delaying marriage reports Reuters News.

Of the 73.7 million children under 18 in the United States, 27 percent were living in single parent homes last year, tripling the 9 percent in 1960.

The number of marriages also dwindled last year with less than half of households in America made up of married couples, compared to three-quarters in 1940, the survey found.

The median age for people first getting married in 2014 was 29 for men and 27 for women up from 24 and 21 respectively in 1947.

Obama's drone strikes resume in Yemen - The American Sheeple Sleep

Obama's Unconstitutional War

  • Dear Leader Obama, with the silent support of both Dems and Republicans, continues his unconstitutional war in Yemen.  Our Constitution has no meaning to either party.

The American Sheeple

The Sheeple will believe just about any lie the government and its controlled media machine says to them.  Since 2001 the Sheeple have been told about attack after attack that supposedly killed "high ranking terrorists" or key groups of fighters.  It is all bullshit and lies.

Just in case no one noticed, the wars against Islamic terrorism have grown and grown in size.  Now there is fighting all over: from Paris to half of Africa, the Middle East and into Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Philippines.  Sorry, but the 1,400 year old war against Islam will not end with a few drone strikes.

(NY Times) - A C.I.A. drone strike in Yemen, the first since the resignation of President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi, killed three suspected Qaeda fighters on Monday, American officials said, in a signal that the United States will continue its counterterrorism operations there despite the apparent takeover by Houthi fighters.

A missile launched from a drone struck a car in which the three men were riding in the central province of Marib, near the border with the province of Shabwa, which is believed to be a Qaeda stronghold. The C.I.A. operates a drone base in southern Saudi Arabia.

A senior American official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, declined to confirm the names of the victims. A C.I.A. spokesman declined to comment reports the New York Times.

There was no official reaction from the Houthis to the American strike, but one member of the movement, who is close to the leaders of the group, said, “We are against any American plane penetrating our airspace.”

He added: “But they killed militants who were probably planning an attack against us in Marib.” He did not want to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the news media.

There are also rising fears that the current political standoff could lead to the partition of Yemen. Alarmed by the Houthis’ expansion, the southern separatist movement, Heraq, has been seizing territory, and some tribes are now more open to working with Al Qaeda, giving the group a larger pool from which to recruit.

“Al Qaeda in Yemen tried to strike a deal with tribes in many places before, but they failed,” said Jamal Benomar, the United Nations envoy to Yemen. “Now, some tribes are fighting along with them.”

Government to Remotely Control Your Car

The New Outer Limits
"We are controlling transmission. . . .  sit quietly 
and we will control all that you see and hear."

(Infowars News)  -  The UK government today announced a plan to remotely control vehicles on roads using wi-fi technology in order to reduce traffic and offset global warming, the latest manifestation of the ‘Internet of Things’ that will stir up concern amongst privacy advocates.

A report released today by Ofcom, the government-controlled body which regulates communications in the United Kingdom, lays out a blueprint that could be realized in as soon as 10 years where cars would communicate with each other to “reduce congestion”.

The proposals are being billed by some media outlets as a means of solving traffic jams and taking the stress out of finding a parking space, while also serving to reduce “greenhouse gases” and offset global warming.

However, buried in the report is a detail that will horrify many libertarians and privacy advocates. 

The state plans to achieve this new high-tech solution by fitting sensors in all cars that would wirelessly send information to a “central traffic control system”. The control system would then react by imposing remote speed limits on each vehicle, a “shockwave effect” which would cause each one to brake and accelerate in unison.

In other words, in the name of reducing traffic and helping the environment, the government could at any time seize control of your vehicle against your will.

Such a system would also obviously empower the government to keep a flawless and permanent database of the precise travel details of every single driver in the country, which would likely be utilized for criminal investigations.

“M2M sensors in cars and on the roads monitor the build up of congestion and wirelessly send this information to a central traffic control system, which automatically impose variable speed limits that smooth the flow of traffic,” states Ofcom. “This system could also communicate directly with cars, directing them along diverted routes to avoid the congestion and even managing their speed.” 
“M2M sensors could also be attached to the mechanical parts of a car, such as ABS wheel rotation sensors to measure speed. This information could be wirelessly communicated to nearby cars, which have onboard computers that process and react to this information.”

43 Filipino commandos killed by Muslim fanatics

43 Dead Commandos

MANILA, Philippines  —  More than 43 (updated) police commandos were killed in a clash with Muslim insurgents Sunday in the southern Philippines in the biggest single-day combat loss for Philippine forces in many years, officials said.
The commandos had entered the far-flung village of Tukanalipao at dawn looking for a top terror suspect, but had a “misencounter” with members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and other insurgents, Mayor Tahirudin Benzar Ampatuan of Mamasapano town told The Associated Press by telephone.
Other insurgents in the area later joined in fighting the outnumbered police forces, the mayor said.
The Moro group signed a peace deal with the government last year reports the New York Post.
Ampatuan, the Moro group and military officials said the police commandos did not coordinate their plan to enter the Muslim rebel village before sunrise, apparently resulting in the fierce fighting.
The fighting in the marshy village of corn and coconut plantations subsided after several hours when members of a cease-fire committee and foreign truce monitors intervened, Ampatuan said, adding he deployed a team of village leaders and guards, who saw more than 30 of the slain commandos scattered in the battle scene.
“What they described to me was gruesome,” Ampatuan said.
The conflict has left 150,000 people dead and helped stunt development in the country's poorest regions.

Islamist Rebels
Sheik Salamat Hashim, in an interview in Nida’ul Islam states his now too-familiar objectives:
To make supreme the Word of Allah and implement Shari’ah [Islamic law].” His promise to those who would support him in ridding the world of Christian, Jewish and other infidel oppressors echoes down from that chain of conflicts that began with the Crusades: “Allah will surely compensate and reward you here in this world and in the Hereafter.”

Sharia police arrest 12 over `gay wedding`

Tshepo Cameron Modisane and Thoba Calvin Sithole were married in the town of KwaDukuza in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa in the area's first traditional African gay wedding.  (towleroad.com)

Frightened of Freedom

  • I am fascinated how the politicians around the world take advantage of people who are frightened to death of Straight or Gay penises and vaginas.  Putting bread on the table and a roof over our heads should be our main concern . . . . not who is screwing who.

(Zee News of India)  -  Twelve young men were arrested in the north Nigerian city of Kano for allegedly planning a gay wedding, the Islamic law-enforcement agency, the Hisbah, said on Tuesday.

The suspects, most of them teenagers, were detained on Monday at a popular resort on the outskirts of the city, said the head of the Hisbah, Aminu Daurawa.
Homosexuality is banned under federal law in Nigeria, where last year new legislation was passed outlawing same-sex marriages and the promotion of civil unions. 
In northern states, where Sharia runs parallel to the state and federal justice system, homosexuality is punishable by death, although the sentence is rarely, if ever, enforced.
"We have 12 men in custody, including the bride. We arrested them at the venue of a planned gay wedding," Daurawa told AFP.
"We got information of the wedding four days earlier and our men stormed the venue while the wedding was about to start."
Many guests escaped during the raid, he added.
But one of the participants, 18-year-old Faruk Maiduguri, told reporters at the Hisbah offices that he and his friends were only celebrating his birthday.
"It was my birthday party, not a gay wedding," he said in tears.
Daurawa said the suspects, who came from Kano, the northern cities of Maiduguri, Kaduna and Bauchi, and Ibadan and Osogbo in the southwest, "looked and acted feminine", which prompted their arrest. 
It was not clear whether they would be charged but their families had been summoned, he added.
In January last year, more than a dozen men suspected of organising a gay wedding were arrested and charged in Bauchi by the Sharia agency.
Some of them were discharged while others were released on bail.
Nigeria`s Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act carries penalties of up to 14 years in jail for anyone confirmed to be in a gay union.

Kerry: Terrorists kill for thrill, not Islamic Jihad

John Kerry Retard Alert!
"We have to keep our heads. The biggest error we could make would be to blame Muslims for crimes."

DAVOS, Switzerland (Associated Press) — Violent extremists who are killing children and others in Iraq, Syria, Nigeria and other parts of the world may cite Islam as a justification, but the West should be careful about calling them Islamic radicals, Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience of opinion leaders Friday at the World Economic Forum.

In a speech calling for a global effort against violent extremism, Kerry said it would be a mistake to link Islam to criminal conduct rooted in alienation, poverty, thrill-seeking and other factors.

"We have to keep our heads," Kerry said. "The biggest error we could make would be to blame Muslims for crimes...that their faith utterly rejects," he added.

"We will certainly not defeat our foes by vilifying potential partners," the top U.S. diplomat said. "We may very well fuel the very fires that we want to put out."

Kerry's comments highlighted a rhetorical division between the U.S. and its closest allies. French President Francois Hollande told the same audience earlier Friday that Islamic extremism is a problem that must be opposed. On Thursday, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond stood next to Kerry and urged the defeat of what he called "the scourge of violent Islamist extremism."

The Obama administration has come under criticism for its unwillingness to differentiate between Islamic extremism and other forms of extremist violence.

Immigration Officers Blast GOP Border Bill: ‘A Global Joke’

Open Borders GOP Screws America

  • Do we really need two Democrat parties?  But the fact of the matter is both parties want wide open borders: the Democrats to create new voters, the GOP to drive down wages for their corporate Masters on Wall Street.
  • We the working American citizens have no party to represent our interests.

Kenneth Palinkas, President of the National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council representing 12,000 United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) adjudicators and personnel, says the immigration legislation scheduled to be considered by the House of Representatives next week puts officers’ mission “in grave peril.”

“Where is the outrage from Congress?,” he asks.  “After the House passed its legislation to reverse the amnesty, all I hear is silence in the Senate.  It seems Congressional leaders will not rise to defend the laws of the United States, but are giving in to the ‘imperial presidency,’ Palinkas says reports Mrc TV.

The full statement by Palinkas is below:

“The dedicated immigration service officers and adjudicators at USCIS are in desperate need of help.  The President’s executive amnesty order for 5 million illegal immigrants places the mission of USCIS in grave peril.  Instead of meeting our lawful function to protect the Homeland and keep out those who pose a threat to US security, health, or finances, our officers will be assigned to process amnesty for individuals residing illegally inside our nation’s borders.  This compromises national security and public safety, while undermining officer morale.

The Administration’s skewed priorities mean that the Crystal City amnesty processing center will likely have superior worksite conditions for personnel relative to our normal processing centers.  Additionally, the security protocols at place in this facility will be insufficient to engage in any basic screening precautions, ensuring and rewarding massive amounts of fraud.  For the Administration to continue down this course after the Paris attacks is beyond belief.

Yet where is the outrage from Congress?  After the House passed its legislation to reverse the amnesty, all I hear is silence in the Senate.  It seems Congressional leaders will not rise to defend the laws of the United States, but are giving in to the ‘imperial presidency.’

I also remain concerned by the fact that needed USCIS reforms are not included in pending legislation.  For instance, H.R. 399 – Chairman McCaul’s legislation – does nothing to preclude anyone in the world from turning themselves in at the US border and obtaining automatic entry and federal benefits.  Almost anyone at all can call themselves an asylum-seeker and get in; it’s a global joke.  It’s not border security if anyone can recite the magic words and get waved right on in.  Those who arrived in the 2014 border run are still here, often living on US support and even applying for US jobs.  The bill also delays by years the implementation of biometric exit-entry to police the rising overstay catastrophe.

We process millions upon millions of applications every year for lifetime immigrant green cards, refugee admissions, asylum-seekers, temporary workers, visitors, tourists, and more – but we do so without any of the resources or mission support we need to screen these individuals properly, let alone to conduct in-person interviews.  We admit individuals who have no business being admitted the United States, whether public charges, health risks, or radicalized Islamists, and in large numbers.  It is unfair to employees, unfair to taxpayers, and unfair to anyone concerned about immigration security.

We are saying to Congress: help us.  Provide us the tools, mission support and resources we need to protect the Homeland, in accord with the laws and Constitution of the United States.”

Come on in.
GOP businessmen are ready for your cheap labor.
