dorrie miller pearl harbor

Recently the City of Buffalo had a display for veterans in City Hall especially focusing on the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.  One of the historical heroes of that attack was an African American by the name of Dorrie Miller. Miller, because he was an African American, was galley help.  While African Americans were drafted and included in the military they were pretty much subjected to the treatment of black people under the Jim Crow Laws.

Dorrie Miller was a hero.  When his …

Please forward Bob McCarty’s letters below on behalf of Green Beret Kelly Stewart.

A woman diagnosed as a borderline personality with a long history of mental health treatment accused a Green Beret with a 12-year stellar record of kidnapping and raping her and nobody seems to care.  Oh, and of course, it must be do to her disorder that she suddenly realized 3 months later that she was kidnapped and raped!

Too bad Rolling Stone hasn’t reported her lying accusations!  Then maybe, just maybe people …

liberty bell

What was the purpose of the founding of these United States of America and the creation of our Constitution? Before the migration from Europe to this newly discovered land, all people of the civilized world were ruled by Kings. Even the original thirteen established states of this new land were ruled, as a colony, by the King of England.

Then something very profound and monumental took place, Independence was declared and the American Revolution was underway, a war for the freedom of man ensued. A group of …

constitution_071510-thumb-640xauto-320

Let’s make this simple: As history has shown through the ages, our US Constitution was complete following each Article and Amendment as our Founding Fathers created. As time progressed over the past 80 years, the Progressives through the help of our Supreme Court and Executive Branch of government, have ripped away the very fibers of the Rule of Law and have since interpreted a new Constitution without God and religious liberty as originally protected by our First Amendment.

As citizens, as …

A Snapshot of Where We Are Today

With a hollowed out and gravely weakened U.S. military and an ever-shrinking, aging and untested (since 1992) nuclear stockpile, the alliance between Iran-Russia-China-North Korea – all nuclear with Russia being the #1 nuclear power in the world – represents a tremendous and growing threat.  (Don’t forget nuclear AND nuclear proliferating Pakistan)!  An increasingly aggressive Russia and China have been testing our defensive responses and that of our NATO allies.  They have augmented their defense budgets while …

PROTESTERS OR RIOTERS?

There is much news about the protests in Ferguson MO after the Grand Jury found that there was no reason to charge the police officer who shot Michael Brown with murder, or any other crime.  That caused a great deal of unrest in the city.

As a Second Amendment activist for almost a half century, I have had experience with protests.  Since the late sixties there have been serious attacks on gun rights and I have been involved with SCOPE, NRA …

Putin Staring

Contrary to popular belief, when you or a loved one dials 9-1-1 from a cell phone, there is a good chance that emergency dispatchers will not be able to locate you, particularly if you’re calling from indoors. It’s hard to believe that our 9-1-1 dispatchers do not have the technology to be able to accurately and quickly locate callers who urgently need assistance.

Our inability to quickly find 9-1-1 callers on cell phones is estimated by the …

It’s glaring Leftist leanings on full display, the Jewish Federation expresses OUTRAGE at the decision to exonerate Officer Wilson, who was beaten within an inch of his life by Michael Brown after Brown robbed a convenience store and roughed up a clerk.  (Captured on video)

This despicable Jewish philanthropic organization – the largest in the world – is sympathetic to the rioters in Ferguson and the liars who have tried to indict an officer who was doing his job to keep …

Video: Taking Back America: The New Hampshire Conservative Revolution

In Obama’s America, it can seem like freedom and limited government are a thing of the past. With a ballooning federal deficit, religious freedom under fire, and the Constitution treated as a joke, it’s hard to find good news for our great country.

Hard, but not impossible. Thankfully, there’s hope, in the form of a determined group of conservative activists that’s growing by the day: the Free State Project.

With too few dedicated conservatives …

snow

Editor’s note: This Hot Spot submission is from Buffalo, NY, recently hit by one of the worst snowstorms in living memory. We call attention to it for a number of reasons, not least of which is this: There is a debate in political philosophy about who was right about man in a state of nature: Hobbes or Locke. Are men beasts, or cowering in fear of beasts? Or are most people basically decent, with a smaller percentage of bad apples. Perhaps it …
