SIDE NOTE:  I’m not sure where the candidates stand on ethanol production and its blending with gasoline but there are some SERIOUS negatives involved:

1) Per gallon, ethanol contains about 30% less energy than gasoline.
2) Ethanol production results in higher food prices as land used for food production produces corn for transportation fuel.
3) Ethanol mixtures increase gas prices as oil companies are forced to blend specified amounts of ethanol into their products.
4) Ethanol damages engines – cars, boats, lawn mowers, etc.
5) …

drone military intelligence

Recently, American traitor Edward Snowden, from his perch in FSB (KGB) Russia, released information explicating close to two decades of UK and US spy operations on Israeli drones and aircraft in action in Gaza, Syria, Lebanon and possibly Iran.

Incidentally, it is not considered unusual for countries to monitor the activities of allies.

What is worrisome is that, thanks to Snowden who enjoys protection from KGB Putin, this data is in Russian (and possibly Iranian/Hezbollah/IRGC) hands.  While the media is littered with …

Austrian Schoolchildren Told to Memorize Words to Christian Hymn, School Replaces Word “God” with “Allah”…

Shockingly, parents had a problem with this.

Via Breitbart:

Austrian authorities are investigating after children were sent home from a kindergarten with homework to learn the words to a Christian hymn, which had the word ‘God’ replaced with ‘Allah’.

The Austrian parent of one child at the Muslim majority school in Oberösterreich complained after he found the handout …

Less than two weeks ago, several world leaders expressed grave concerns about the future of the European Union.

At the recent Davos Economic Forum, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte compared the 35,000 “refugees” crossing the sea from Turkey to Greece in the first three WEEKS of 2016 to the 1,600 who entered during the MONTH of January 2015.  He warned that once spring arrived, migrant numbers could quadruple, potentially bringing about the collapse of the EU as well as the death knell …

vote election ballot election

There are many things to be said about New York politics.  Adjectives like, expensive, corrupt, inefficient and in great need of improvement come to mind.  However, there is that other side of the argument that also needs to be defined.  Without government we have anarchy which is not a good thing.  The people we elect are the ones who can make the necessary changes.

A good society needs structure and order and this should be the model for government.  Conservatives believe …

christopher stevens ambassador benghazi

Ken Timmerman was in town this week promoting his latest book, Dark Forces:  The Truth About What Happened in Benghazi.  

Much useful information of interest to listserv members was discussed.

As most of you are aware, the primary goal of the Benghazi mission was to extend the “Arab Spring” to Libya by overthrowing Gaddafi and installing a Muslim Brotherhood government.  This was Stevens’ raison d’être in Benghazi.

Much like many pursuits of the Obama regime, this mission was unfortunate for Libyans and contrary …

It’s not every night you get to hear from one tough Green Beret who, after a 6 hour gunfight in Afghanistan, carries his own severed leg out of the fight and lives to tell about it.

Here’s his story:

John Wayne Walding asked one thing last night of all Americans.  Say Thank You to our Military and our Veterans.  That’s all they ask.

Thank You To All Who Serve and have Served.  We are the greatest nation on the face of this earth because of …

pistol gun weapon armed

As expected, the State of the Union and State of the State speeches had the president and governor of New York both mentioning their intentions to “strengthen gun control laws.”  Neither went into detail about their push to infringe more on Second Amendment rights.  It wasn’t necessary because the president’s program is similar to the SAFE act already known to be ineffective when it comes to the criminal misuse of firearms.  The term “gun violence” is the buzz word phrase …

refugees migrants immigrants

Turkish Muslim, Hamdi Ulukaya, who founded Chobani, America’s top-selling Greek yogurt – $1.5 billion in sales in 2015, knows how to market more than yogurt.

The billionaire, with a net worth of $5.4 billion according to Bloomberg, is selling the ‘desperate plight’ of Muslim refugees from the Middle East and North Africa and their potential value to the already job-challenged American labor force.  Ulukaya has made a mission of employing Muslim “refugees” in his factories and has called upon corporate America …
