Video: Michelle Obama Shows Class, Eye Rolls Boehner

The inauguration of a president to a new four year term, is celebration for all Americans to be proud of.

Our political system has shown we can have a peaceful and orderly transfer of power after popular elections; no need for armed overthrows of leaders.

Inauguration day is when the leaders and their families come together as Americans, despite their political differences. It’s a moment in time when our leaders can mark a new spirit of cooperation for the country and set the tone for the rest of the citizens.

After all we are all crew-members on this ship of state called America.

So much of the inauguration festivities are symbolic, that’s why it has always been a day to observe social mores and show basic respect.

When cameras caught Michelle Obama’s, look of contempt and disdain towards the speaker of the House John Boehner during a luncheon, it came as a shock for many.

This is not what this day is about and it brought out an ugly truth on a day that was supposed to be reserved for celebration and unity as a country.

If looks could kill, John Boehner would have been lying on the floor after the treatment he received from the First Lady at that luncheon.

Boehner, sitting next to President Obama and Michelle, was trying to make polite conversation with them, but as the video showed, Michelle showed as much courtesy to Boehner as she would have to a lowly cockroach. She didn’t stop eating, to acknowledge the Speaker and couldn’t have flashed a worse multi faceted scowl his way without missing a bite:

From the video, Boehner acted like a gentleman and continued on with the conversation, not allowing himself to be dragged into the pettiness.

What would the reaction be if it was a Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi being shown such disrespect at a George Bush inauguration?

The First Lady and the president had an opportunity to mend fences and set a tone for the country yesterday. They had an opportunity to mend the rift the country finds itself split down the middle on…..But if Michelle is any indicator of what lies in the heart of the White house, there will be little attempt to mend fences or find common ground.

Video: Tiananmen Square Survivor Says 2nd Amendment is Key to Replacing Criminal Government

Last year, Kathleen and I visited China for three weeks. We spent time in Shanghai, Nanjing, Beijing, and other Chinese cities.

One of the highlights of the trip was Tiananmen Square. The area was fenced off with a number of other security measures in place including numerous police, surveillance cameras, and checkpoints.

Despite this corridor of security, Kathleen and I were identified as westerners and almost immediately waived in. The hundreds of Chinese awaiting entrance, however, were forced to undergo intrusive security screening, similar to what one could expect from overzealous TSA agents in the US.

While there, a man told us that during the 1989 Tiananmen Square uprising, the communist government had killed literally thousands of protesters, identified virtually every surviving participant, and incarcerated most of those survivors.

One of them, however, apparently made it out and became a US citizen in 2007. According to Townhall.com, this protester then recorded the following video regarding the incredible importance of the Second Amendment:

In this Tea Party speech, the naturalized Chinese-American citizen demonstrated an exceptional understanding of the Constitution and the Second Amendment. Among other things, he noted that

•”The power of the government is derived from the consent of the governed.”

•Chinese patriots in Tiananmen were crushed by “AK-47’s” because they could “not fight back” as they “were not armed.”

•The argument “that a man with a rifle has no standing against the military technology and machine of today” is ridiculous. 20,000,000 residents of Beijing would have quickly proved that wrong had they been armed in 1989.

•”When a government turns criminal, when a government turns deranged, the body count will not be 5, 10, or even 20. It will be in hundreds like Tiananmen Square, it will be in the millions…

•”When a government has a monopoly on guns, it has absolute power.”

•”When a government has all the guns, it has all the rights.”

•”To me, a rifle is not for sporting or hunting. It is an instrument of freedom. It guarantees that I cannot be coerced, that I have free will, that I am a free man.”

The Tiananmen survivor also weighed in on firearm magazine restrictions, like those proposed by a number of bills pending before the US Congress: “Now suppose the 20 million Beijing citizens had had a few million rifles, how many rounds should they have been ALLOWED to load into their magazines? Ten rounds? [crowd: No!] Seven rounds? [crowd: No!] How about three rounds? [crowd: No!]”

The naturalized US citizen continued,

Do not give up the fight, my friends. It may be a small step that you give up your rifle, or a 30 round magazine.

But it will be a giant leap toward the destruction of this republic.

Now, in closing, I will quote the words of Captain John Parker: ‘Stand your ground. Do not fire until fired upon. But if they want a war, let it start here!

Video: How About Some Self-Government?

In a time when the expectation of most Americans is a government solution for virtually every problem we face, Molotov Mitchell has a novel idea. How about we govern ourselves?

After all, wasn’t that the expectation of our founders? Or is the enlightenment ideal of common men governing themselves according the cannons of common sense a thing of the past?

Mitchell maintains that it’s time for us to take the task of government into our own hands. Rather than look to the nanny state for parental guidance, we should address our world with common sense solutions that would make government intervention unnecessary.

Video: Man in Tree Disrupts 2013 Inauguration, Yells, ‘What About the Babies?!’

The 2013 Presidential Inauguration was disturbing on a number of different levels, not the least of which was the almost overt religious theme intermixed with leftist invocations about gay rights and global warming.

Something you may not have heard about the event, however, involved an elderly pro-life protester who climbed a tall tree and used that as a platform to confront Obama on abortion:


On another note, the security at the event was thorough. It took several hours to get through the check points:

There were also several interesting vehicles positioned around the inaugural event with detectors:

And, there were a numbered of armored vehicles from DHS:

They even had horses, apparently for crowd control:

Video: Senators Ted Cruz and Chuck Schumer Debate Gun Control, Debt Ceiling, and More

Newly elected Texas Senator Ted Cruz appeared on Meet The Press on Sunday with David Gregory and New York Senator Chuck Schumer to talk gun control, the debt ceiling, Chuck Hagel, and Colin Powell’s latest charges of Republican intolerance and bigotry.

Up against one of the most formidable Democrat interlocutors in the United States Senate, the freshman Tea Party Senator more than held his own, performing as a seasoned veteran.

If this interview is any indication of Cruz’ future performance in the Senate, it appears Conservatives will have an able spokesman on the national stage for the foreseeable future.

Video: Islamists Protest French Military Intervention in Mali, Call for Shariah, Jihad in Europe and World

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) posted unbelievable video Sunday of Islamists rallying in England a little over one week ago to protest the French intervention in Mali.

The chants of the Islamists, though, appear to target the West in its entirety. Far from objecting to French foreign policy, the speakers repeatedly threaten that an Islamic caliphate will begin in Africa and the Middle East, but will eventually spread to “the whole world.”

“We will not stop as Muslims until the whole world is governed by Islam,” one man says evenly and calmly.

The video begins with a bearded individual leading chants, saying things like “Shariah for Mali! Jihad for Mali!” and “Allah Akbar!”

Video: Ted Nugent Says Barack Obama ‘An Evil, Dangerous Man Who Hates America, and Hates Freedom’

In a recent interview with Guns.com,Ted Nugent called out President Obama on his proposed infringements on the Second Amendment, accusing the administration of “attempting to re-implement the tyranny of King George.”

“If you want another Concord bridge, I got some buddies,” Nugent said.

Promoting the National Rifle Association’s Stand and Fight campaign, the iconic rocker discussed many topics, including the NRA, new gun laws in New York, the US Justice system, Piers Morgan, and President Obama.

Clearly, Nugent believes our freedoms are threatened by the latest machinations coming out of Washington D.C.

“Those that would take away the right to keep and bear arms, or infringe upon it in any way, are enemies of freedom,” he said.

See video:

In his opinion, the definition of the right to keep and bear is quite simple. “’Keep’ means it’s mine, you can’t have it. ‘Bear’ means I have some on me right now, and they’re loaded.”

In response to the Newtown, CT shooter being used as a rationale for new gun control measures, Nugent pointed out that 41 different laws had been broken in the course of the massacre. He then asked, “How insane do you have to be to think that the 42nd law would have had any effect on this madman?”

He also addressed the media’s ubiquitous question as to why anyone “needs” an AR-15.

Nugent said, “I don’t need to answer why I need an AR-15.” Speaking of the Bill of Rights, he continued. “It’s not the declaration of needs. It’s not the bill of needs. I don’t need a Corvette to go to the store for milk and bread, but I want two.”

He ended the interview by saying that he is energized and excited by the fact that there is a growing movement of people who celebrate the spirit of the Second Amendment, and warned of a bellicose undercurrent to the push for new gun control measures.

“When a man can dictate to another man an unarmed helplessness, such a dictator is dangerous.”

But he didn’t stop there, further stating that the President is “an evil, dangerous man, who hates America, and hates freedom.”

Video: Failed Assassination Attempt on Bulgarian Politician Captured Live

A prominent Bulgarian politician survived what appeared to be a dramatic point-blank assassination attempt on Saturday, when an unidentified man pointed a gas pistol at his head and fired in front of hundreds of horrified onlookers.

Ahmed Dogan, leader and founder of the influential liberal Bulgarian political party Movement for Rights and Freedoms, was delivering an address at the party’s annual conference in the capital city of Sofia when the black-clad man — who appeared to have a security pass to attend the event — approached suddenly with the pistol.

Attendees gasped as the attacker placed the gun inches from Dogan’s head and pulled the trigger twice. When no shot rang out, Dogan wrestled briefly with the man as audience members and security staff swooped in from off stage.

Gas pistols are normally used for non-lethal self-defense, but they can cause fatal injuries when fired at close range.

The 25-year-old assailant, who authorities have determined has a criminal history of robbery and drug possession, was then beaten and kicked savagely by the assembled crowd.
