Image result for flickr commons images Culpeper County VirginiaA sheriff in Virginia said on Facebook last week that if the Democratic-controlled legislature in his state passes restrictive gun control laws, he may deputize thousands of citizens to allow them to be exempt from the laws.
Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins praised his county for becoming one of dozens of "sanctuary" counties in the state for gun owners and said he will exercise the power of his position to support gun rights, if necessary.

  • Eric Sprankle, a Minnesota State University associate professor, says “there is no definition of consent” that constitutes God impregnating the Virgin Mary.
  • Sprankle also shares Satanic symbolism on his Twitter page.

A Minnesota professor suggested in a series of tweets that the Virgin Mary did not consent to the conception of Jesus Christ and suggested that God may have acted in a “predatory" manner.
Minnesota State University, Mankato psychology professor and sex therapist Dr. Eric Sprankle critiqued the story of the Virgin Mary in a tweet Monday, suggesting that the Virgin Mary did not consent to being impregnated by God.

"A Christmas tree is a heartening symbol of warmth and cheer in the deepening winter.
But this totem of festive joy did not last long on the cold concrete outside BBC headquarters.
A decked-out tree stood at the door of New Broadcasting House for just one week before it was cut up and carted off, with some perplexed members of staff at the corporation told it was a “security risk”.

Rather than the tree being relocated in one piece from the main entrance of broadcaster as it prepares for busy election night coverage, its baubled boughs were chopped up for apparent health and safety reasons on Saturday..."

Social Credit System, China mass surveillance tool, designed to enforce political control - Washington Times:

Image result for flickr commons images china flagChina is developing a new high-tech system of mass surveillance and coercion aimed suppressing political dissent among its 1.4 billion people, while forcing American and Western businesses to conform to the government’s communist policies if they want to operate there.
The system that critics call an Orwellian national-level control system has been dubbed the Social Credit System (SCS) and was set for launch in the coming year, although recent reports from China now say the rollout could be delayed until 2021.

Gov. Cuomo’s Self-Inflicted Natural Gas Shortage Coming to a Head

See the source imageGov. Cuomo’s Self-Inflicted Natural Gas Shortage Coming to a Head
"Years of aggressive anti-natural gas policies, while simultaneously increasing natural gas consumption, is coming to a head in the Empire State. 
...Cuomo followed up an October emergency order requiring the utility company National Grid to lift its months-long moratorium on new natural gas hook-ups for existing suspended customers, with a threat to revoke the utility’s license to operate downstate (New York City-Long Island region) if it is unable to find a solution to supply this natural gas to all roughly 4,000 applicants by November 26. 
The irony: The company never would have had to suspend service in the first place if not for the governor’s ongoing pipeline blockade.
As the Wall Street Journal editorial board pointed out:
“In another display of political grace, Mr. Cuomo has ordered the utility National Grid to resume natural-gas hookups that were suspended after his senseless pipeline veto this spring. … Apparently Mr. Cuomo didn’t understand that the result of his pipeline blockade was to force residents to use more expensive and less-efficient electric appliances for space and water heating.”

Image result for Bill Clinton Jeffrey EpsteinInvestigative journalist: Why is Bill Clinton escaping scrutiny in Jeffrey Epstein case? | Fox News
"Following a bombshell interview in which Virginia Roberts Giuffre claimed she was trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein and forced to have sex with Prince Andrew, an investigative reporter is asking why former President Bill Clinton is not being discussed.
On "The Story," New York Post writer Maureen Callahan claimed it is odd that Andrew is most notable person to become embroiled in the alleged scandal so far.
"It seems very curious that so far the highest-profile man to be potentially taken down by this -- because we don't know what's going to happen yet -- though this does not look good for Andrew ... is, in essence, a dim, useless member of an aging monarchy," Callahan told host Martha MacCallum.
Andrew, the Duke of York and younger brother of heir apparent Prince Charles, has vehemently denied Giuffre's allegations.
"We know, for example, that Bill Clinton was on planes owned by Jeffrey Epstein, was on Jeffrey Epstein's private island multiple times," Callahan added. "I cannot believe we're not talking about him."...

Pensacola Jihad Massacre Proves We've Learned Nothing Since the Fort Hood Attack | Columns
See the source image"Second Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, an aviation officer in the Saudi Air Force, opened fire at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla., on Friday, killing four people and wounding many others.
...Before he embarked upon his killing spree, someone who appeared to be Alshamrani ranted on Twitter about the evils of America.
...He was killing because of America’s supposed crimes against Muslims...
...Alshamrani was in the country to get aviation training. 
No one flagged him as a potential jihadi.
No one would even have dared to question him to try to ascertain his thoughts about the United States and the global jihad.
Any effort to have done so would have been denounced as “Islamophobic,” and would have been career suicide for whoever did the questioning.
We saw this with the Fort Hood jihad mass murderer, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who was praised and promoted despite alarming his colleagues with his talk of violent jihad.
None of his superiors dared do anything except promote him; they knew that if they questioned him about his loyalties, they would be the subject of a CNN feature story the next week on “Islamophobia in the Military,” and they would be looking at a dishonorable discharge.
Thirteen people died at Fort Hood because of the politically correct assumption that Islam is a religion of peace and that to raise suspicions about any Muslim is “Islamophobic” and evidence of nothing more than bigotry and racism..."

Image result for a mind is a terrible thing to wasteHistorically Black Colleges & Financial Subsidies -- Do Failing They Deserve Billions in Handouts? | National Review

  • A lack of accountability means that mismanaged institutions repeatedly get bailed out.

"The federal government shovels hundreds of millions of dollars per year to America’s 100 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), with minimal accountability.
Image result for it's a scam...and Congress has already rewarded the worst performers with loan deferment and forgiveness.
...Let’s look at the biggest number first.
Senator Booker hopes to throw $100 billion at HBCUs and minority-serving institutions (MSIs) in general.
Under his plan, he would transform HBCUs into social-activist organizations in “the fight against climate change,” though it remains unclear why being historically black makes them particularly well qualified for this task.
...Here’s what we’re already spending on HBCUs under Title III.
In 2019 Congress gave these 101 institutions $282 million, plus $79 million in “mandatory” money (for which the institutions need to do little but fill out a form), plus $73 million for Historically Black Graduate Institutions (including law and medical schools), plus $9 million for master’s-degree programs.
...On top of all that, Howard University gets its own annual appropriation of $237 million, nearly a billion dollars every four years, having been uniquely created and chartered by Congress in 1867.
Image result for money waste...In 2019, Congress also offered $40 million in loan subsidies that are uniquely available to HBCUs. This number represents another entirely undeserved windfall.
This loan program, the HBCU Capital Financing Program, had been required by Congress in 2018 to forgive or defer hundreds of millions in loans to HBCUs, including those that had the full ability to pay.
...Meanwhile, early in 2018, Howard was still reeling from its failure to update its steam plant, whose pipes had burst in the cold and caused a delay in the start of classes.
