Disarmed and docile Europeans pose no meaningful threat to their governments’ depredations.
All sorts of reasons have been advanced for declining birthrates. SLL spotlights Europe as an advanced case and offers a hypothesis: its testicles have gone missing.
What does it do to a continent when a country 3,000 miles and an ocean away strikes the decisive blows in two of its cataclysmic wars? What does it do to that continent when that distant power assumes control over much of its defense? At a primal level, the very essence of manhood is the ability to defend one’s self and loved ones. Perhaps ceding responsibility for doing so is not emasculation, but it made Europe the little brother who must rely on big brother to fight his battles.
Naturally, big brother calls the tune. During the Cold War, that meant accepting one’s place under the US defense umbrella and toeing the US line on the Soviet Union. Only French President Charles de Gaulle challenged US domination, and that was more show than substance. With a nuclear arsenal and geographic proximity, the Soviet Union posed an existential threat to Europe, even more than it did to the US. If the Soviet Union had invaded during the de Gaulle era, France would have quickly rejoined a US-led alliance.

Skeletons in the Closet: Revealing Civil War Myths to Reignite the States As America’s liberties and morals continue to deteriorate toward a point of ruin, We, The People, are struggling to remedy the death spiral of an overreaching, all-powerful national government. Many well-intentioned Americans are looking for rescue through voting and political activism, but there are skeletons lurking in America’s closet. Join historian and legal activist John Ainsworth of America’s Remedy, on October 21st, in Trent Woods, NC. At this day seminar and luncheon John will provide an in-depth analysis of how America went from a union of sovereign states to a nation of one — effectually a single state, where individual rights and sovereign states are forfeited to a new order of subjugated national citizens with privileges. During this exciting seminar, history will come alive as we open the door to the past, clear the myths, and show how to reignite the states with a counter-revolutionary movement that can remedy the death spiral once and for all. Come have lunch, and learn with us! –Registration Link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/skeletons-in-the-closet-revealing-civil-war-myths-to-reignite-the-states-tickets-38809101066 –Alternate/Short Link: http://bit.ly/AR-SEMINAR –Download Flyer: http://www.americasremedy.com/pdf/2017-10-21-skeletons-in-the-closet.pdf –Facebook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/488559621530212 Date: October 21, 2017 Time: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM (check-in, coffee, donuts at 8:30AM) Cost: $20.00 Includes: Attendance at all sessions, study materials, and lunch Where: Highland Park Christian Church (Fellowship Hall)* 905 Carolina Ave Trent Woods, NC 28562 Agenda: 8:30 AM – 9:00 AM ….… Check-in (coffee and doughnuts provided) 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM …… Morning Session 12:00 PM – 12:30 PM ….

Philadelphia’s public school system allowed the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to conduct sensitivity training for its teachers last year, CAIR press releases and school district documents obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism show.
CAIR attorneys conducted a presentation for educators on Election Day, focusing on Islamophobia and the civil rights of Muslim students, a November press release said. The seminar was described as the first in a series of planned workshops on those issues.
“In the current political environment, Muslim American students are facing increased rates of bullying, emotional abuse, physical threats, and verbal epithets due to their faith, race, or ethnicity,” CAIR Philadelphia said in the release.
CAIR Philadelphia provides zero evidence to support this assertion.
Florida Republican Carlos Curbelo along with 9 other turncoat Republicans introduce the first formal anti-gun law after the tragedy in Las Vegas. It’s also backed by 10 Democrats.
Despite the ongoing epidemic of violent crime in Mexico, it remains much easier for an illegal immigrant to buy a weapon in the US than for a Mexican citizen to buy one in Mexico.
A recent report by the Government Accountability Office has found that 70% of the firearms seized in Mexico last year originated in the US. Most came from Southwest border states. According to the GAO, most of these weapons were bought legally in the US, and then smuggled across the border.
The US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) release data each year on the number of weapons seized in Mexico, and seeks to trace the origin of these weapons. Between 2009 and 2014, 105,000 guns were seized, and of these some 70,000 came from the US. 17% were traced to other countries, and 13% could not be tracked.
It is now estimated that some 2000 illegal weapons cross the US-Mexico border each day. According to Mexican government sources, some 85% of the 15 million weapons currently in Mexico are illegal. While the proximity of the US is the largest factor in criminal’s decision to buy weapons here, there is another reason: for drug gangs, the weapons of choice are military-style assault weapons, and these are easily available in the US.
These weapons contribute to an epidemic of gun violence in Mexico. A few months back, a new report was published that showed that Mexico had 23,000 intentional homicides in 2016. This means that the country is second only to war-torn Syria in terms of murder rate. Battles between drug gangs and security forces have claimed more than 100,000 lives since 2007.
Stopping gun smuggling across the border is a complex challenge, not least because of the lack of information available on gun sales in the US. No records need to be kept of guns purchased at gun fairs, or sold through private auctions. In addition, many smugglers remove the serial numbers from the weapons they buy, making them very difficult to trace.
In addition, there is a lack of cooperation between the US and Mexican governments. In a report published after the arrest of Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, a US Federal watchdog agency criticized the scaling-back of efforts to stop this traffic, stating that “Efforts to stem firearms trafficking between the United States and Mexico were scaled back as the administration of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto reconsidered bilateral law enforcement cooperation”.
The situation is only likely to get worse now that Trump is President. With relations between the US and Mexico at an all-time low, following disagreements about Trump’s border wall and other issues, it is unlikely that bilateral enforcement is going to re-start anytime soon.
Re-building trust between the US and Mexican governments undoubtedly forms part of the solution to this problem. However, there are several other ways in which it could be addressed.
First, let’s examine one argument normally put forward by the left – that the smuggling is exacerbated lax gun regulation in the US. While it is true that firearms are easy to buy in the US, even by illegal immigrants, in reality tightening up gun laws is unlikely to stop smuggling. These weapons are already bought for illegal purposes, and so by increasing limitations on the ale of firearms the problem is just going to be driven underground.
Even if relations between the US and Mexican governments could be improved, there are long-standing problems with the way that the US addresses this problem. Not only is there a lack of data on who buys weapons in the US, but what little information there is is held by agencies that seem adverse to sharing it.
In reality, the problem is caused by another long-standing problem in our country – the over-reach of, and competition between, federal agencies. As far back as 2009, the GAO noted that the ATF and the ICE were duplicating each other’s work, and that their respective jurisdictions were hazily defined. Notably, the ATF has been unable to trace more than half of the original purchasers of these weapons due to incomplete data.
In this area, what is needed is clarification of the jurisdiction of the two agencies, and a way to monitor their ability to share information.

The following analysis concerning the Las Vegas shooting asks the right questions and bypasses the media’s and government’s narrative. Instead of more closure, this past week only saw more inconsistencies emerge. The following article by Chuck Baldwin is lengthy but I encourage you to read the entire piece.

If there was more than one shooter, the only thing that makes sense to me is that it had to be a professional dark ops government action. “Whose government?” you ask. There are only three governments that have the resources to successfully pull off a shooting of this magnitude and completely escape detection inside the continental United States—only three: America’s CIA, British MI6, and the Israeli Mossad. That’s it. Plus, the presence of “spy cameras” in Paddock’s room strongly indicates the presence of spooks. This is almost standard procedure for covert ops and suggests a degree of sophistication in this operation that I cannot imagine Stephen Paddock would have. Forget ISIS and all that claptrap. If there were multiple shooters (of which all but one have completely disappeared, and no one in law enforcement is even looking for them), it could only be carried out by one of—or a consortium of—these three governments.
I realize that it is extremely difficult (and uncomfortable) for people to accept the possibility that elements within our own government could be capable of such an atrocity as the shootings in Las Vegas. But any government that has no qualms about murdering tens of millions of unborn babies; any government that has no qualms about murdering hundreds of thousands of innocent people around the world in unprovoked, preemptive drone attacks, missile attacks, bombings, assassinations, and illegal dark operations; and any government that would callously send young Americans into these battlefield meat grinders to fight and die for the sake of wars for profit, nation-building, and political power-brokering is capable of ANYTHING.

While many in the firearm community have controversially withdrawn their support of bump fire stock possession and other devices designed to simulate a fully automatic rate of fire due to the recent tragedy in Las Vegas, this new bill featuring poorly worded legislation seeks to indirectly implement a blanket ban of nearly every semi-automatic rifle system currently in existence.
While the full text of the proposed bill can be found here, the portion that raises the most concern involves the following verbiage:
“To amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit the manufacture, possession, or transfer of any part or combination of parts that is designed and functions to increase the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle but does not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machine gun, and for other purposes.”
The language of this paragraph extends far beyond bump fire stocks, or even other “controversial” bump fire devices such as rubber bands, pieces of string, and belt loops. The vast majority of factory and aftermarket components currently available for semiautomatic rifle platforms are designed to improve performance of the rifle system, allowing the shooter to more effectively place rounds on target in a shorter time span (therefore increasing the effective rate of fire of the rifle).
Possession of virtually all magazines (regardless of capacity), aftermarket triggers, buffers, buffer springs, adjustable gas blocks, and a variety of other components would be immediately rendered illegal through the far-reaching and poorly worded language of this bill. There is no grandfather clause, with only a ninety-day amnesty period offered prior to enactment of the act. After that amnesty period nearly every owner of a semiautomatic rifle with a magazine of any capacity would be immediately classified as a criminal.

There are a variety of reasons Trump supporters voted the way they did in November, but one clear message many found attractive was the idea his administration would be driven by an “America First” doctrine. America first meant a lot of things to a lot of different people, running the gamut from economic populism and immigration, to an avoidance of barbaric and costly overseas wars. The economic populism part was the biggest ruse from day one, a betrayal which (as we had seen under Obama) became undeniable as soon as he started appointing lifelong swamp-dwelling billionaires and Goldman Sachs partners to run his administration. Irrespective of who you elect, Wall Street runs the empire, as Trump proved once again.
The coming massive pivot when it comes to destructive wars abroad will take a little longer, but the writing’s been on the wall for months. I’ve published several posts on the topic, with the most popular one titled, Prepare for Impact – This is the Beginning of the End for U.S. Empire.
Here’s an excerpt:
It will be a crash like we’ve never seen before.
SLL has been accused of trafficking in “doom porn.” Guilty as charged. If you don’t like doom porn, don’t read this article, it’s hard core. If you prefer feel good and heartwarming, there are plenty of Wall Street research reports and mainstream media stories about the economy available. Enjoy!
In 1971, President Nixon closed the “gold window,” which allowed foreign governments to exchange their dollars for gold. This severed the last link between any government and central bank-created debt and the real economy. Debt could be conjured at whim, and governments and central banks have done so for the last 46 years.
Not surprisingly, credit creation without restraint has papered the globe with the greatest pile of debt mankind has ever amassed, measured in nominal terms or relative to the underlying economy. A measure of how extraordinary this situation is: most people regard it as normal, if they think of it all. Debt is a first mover, a financial constant. Any exigency small or large can be met from an unlimited credit pool that will always be with us. How to rebuild Houston, Florida, and Puerto Rico? No problem, borrow.
Project Veritas’ latest installment in the American Pravda series takes aim at The New York Times, the supposed “paper of record.” In the first part of this series, Nicholas Dudich, Audience Strategy Editor for the Times’ extensive video library speaks candidly about how his left political bias influences his editorial judgement and reveals an unusual connection to former FBI Director James Comey, and a strange association with domestic terror group Antifa.
