Today’s face of the day stood up to a group of Muslims who attempted to establish the first Islamic Sharia court inside the United States inside of her town of Irving in Texas.

Mayor Beth Van Duyne made a public Facebook post stating that she backs the new Texas law which prohibits any kind of foreign law from being practiced in the state of Texas.
After calls, threats and toddler-like demands to apologize from the Muslims who attempted to form the Sharia tribunal along with representatives from the Council on Islamic-American Relations, a known front for the Muslim Brotherhood, the mayor never once backed down.

This is Robert McGee, I don’t know if we should call him a lucky man or not. As a young boy he was scalped by an Indian Chief called Little Turtle. He survived the horrible experience.

Scalped by Indians

Robert McGee was the son of emigrants. In 1864, Robert and his family decided to migrate west, as was the custom of many emigrants of the day, to seek a better life. The family joined a wagon train heading to Leavenworth, Kansas. Somewhere on the trail, Robert’s parents died, and he was left an orphan. Others on the wagon train cared for Robert on the trail.

Once they reached Leavenworth, Robert, a mere child, was left to fend for himself. Desperate for work, Robert took a job with a freight company to take supplies to Fort Union in New Mexico. In July of 1864 the freight company had a wagon train leave Fort Leavenworth bound for Fort Union, and Robert was one of the teamsters working on this wagon train.

At about 5 in the afternoon, [their] camp was attacked by 150 Sioux under the command of the chief Little Turtle. The men were caught completely off guard, and the group was slaughtered. Robert was the sole survivor of the slaughter, and he remembered the details of the ordeal. Robert had been dragged by some of the Indians to Chief Little Turtle. The chief first knocked him down with a lance, and then shot him with a revolver. The chief then shot him through with two arrows, to pin him to the ground, and then scalped him. As each of the Indians passed him, they beat and stabbed him, and then he was left for dead. He lived, even though he no longer had a scalp.

An Article re-written from a different perspective

This week it was suggested to me that I should re write an article from a different perspective. Yesterday I came across the perfect candidate. After reading it right through and seeing the supplied photo I couldn’t believe the way the facts had been presented.

The headline on Stuff was:

Boy, 14, arrested for homemade clock mistaken for a bomb

My headline would be:

Suspicious device inside suitcase leads to arrest of Boy,14, who made it.

The article did not show a photo of the device until the reader had been forced to read a whole lot of Islamophobia and racism rubbish. The article talked about a home made electronic radio leading the reader to assume it was something innocent looking like this.

Truth Revolt reports:

A store clerk near Houston turned the tables on an armed robber earlier this week, shooting and killing the would-be bandit.

The attempted robbery took place around 3pm on July 14th. Store owner Pawan Kumar was not in the store at the time but watched the video via a link on his cellphone, he said. The robber came in and wanted more than cash.    Read more »

Last remnants of the razed Mount Carmel Center burn down.

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms raid the Branch Davidian cult compound in Waco, Texas, prompting a gun battle. The federal agents were attempting to arrest the leader of the Branch Davidians, David Koresh, on information that the religious sect was stockpiling weapons. A nearly two-month standoff ensued after the unsuccessful raid.

Those who died here hailed from around the world. Among the dead, according to their memorial stones, were 52 Americans, 23 English citizens, four Australians, two Canadians, one Israeli and one New Zealander.

Today’s face of the day is a personal heroine of mine. She is a speaker of the inconvenient truth. As an ex teacher of History I know that it is people and organisations like hers that can change the world. I also know that her battle will be uphill all the way. The kind of opposition she faces I would expect in a non democratic country where free speech has no place. The fact that she has had to fight for the right to Free Speech in America of all places is a frightening thing. Pamela’s response to critics after this weeks Jihadist attack on the American Freedom Defense Initiative Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest is below.

Some are saying I provoked this attack. But to kowtow to violent intimidation will only encourage more of it.

Sunday in Garland, Texas, a police officer was wounded in a battle that is part of a longstanding war: the war against the freedom of speech. Some people are blaming me for the Garland shooting — so I want to address that here.
The shooting happened at my American Freedom Defense Initiative Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest, when two Islamic jihadists armed with rifles and explosives drove up to the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland and attempted to gain entry to our event, which was just ending. We were aware of the risk and spent thousands of dollars on security — and it paid off. The jihadis at our free speech event were not able to achieve their objective of replicating the massacre at the offices of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine last January — and to go it one better in carnage. They were not able to kill anyone. We provided enormous security, in concert with the superb Garland police department. The men who took the aspiring killers down may have saved hundreds of lives.
And make no mistake: If it weren’t for the free-speech conference, these jihadis would have struck somewhere else — a place where there was less security, like the Lindt cafe in Australia or the Hyper Cacher Kosher supermarket in Paris.    Read more »

Let me guess…Lone wolves?

Islamic terrorists have attacked an art exhibition and been shot and killed in the process.

No doubt these Islamic gunmen will be described as lone wolf attackers…and the art exhibition organisers will be blamed for the attack.

[T]wo men were shot and killed outside a provocative contest for cartoon depictions of the Prophet Muhammad.

The event took place at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland.

The two suspects drove up and opened fire near the center hitting a Garland ISD officer. Garland Police shot and killed the two men.

Multiple SWAT teams and an FBI bomb squad were searching the suspects’ vehicle for bombs.

“Because of the situation and what was going on today and the history of what we’ve been told has happened at other events like this, we’re considering their car as possibly having a bomb,” said Garland police officer Joe Harn.

Pamela Geller is planning a “Draw the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas in the same location as a Muslim group held a “Stand with the Prophet” conference in January. The First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest will be hosted by the Curtis Caldwell Center, which is owned and operated by the Garland Independent School District.

Geller’s event comes on the wake of the Islamic terrorist attack on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo in January. Following the attack, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) scheduled the “Stand with the Prophet” conference at the public school district’s conference center. Geller, the President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), scheduled a protest outside the event that was attended by approximately 2,000 people.

During the Free Speech Rally in Garland, Geller spoke with Breitbart Texas about her reaction to the large and loud crowd of protesters. She said that Muslims are trying to impose restrictions on free speech like they are doing in Paris. “Thousands of Americans said ‘no way!’”

“The media can smear us and the President can stand with them,” Geller said. “We the people are not having it. If there is any proof of that, it’s today. We dwarfed them.”

“If the Western media ran the Danish cartoons back when this Islamic supremacist movement first started gaining steam, the editorial staff of Charlie Hebdo would be alive today,” Geller stated in response to an inquiry from Breitbart Texas. “That said, the European press ran the Hebdo cartoons in the wake of that jihad slaughter. But the American press would not. The beacon of freedom, the shining light on a hill, is running scared. Well, that’s not who we are. The elites do not represent the people.”

“Enough is enough,” she explained. “They’re just cartoons. We’re holding this exhibit and cartoon contest to show how insane the world has become — with people in the free world tiptoeing in terror around supremacist thugs who actually commit murder over cartoons. If we can’t stand up for the freedom of speech, we will lose it — and with it, free society.”

Face of the day

Boy am I glad that I didn’t go to our face of the day’s school when I was nine years old. I was a bossy little so and so and would command groups of kids both female and male all running around with wooden and plastic firearms that I had brought to primary school. I got to be in charge because I had all the war toys ( thanks Dad ) We would kill each other with hoots of joy every break and sometimes we would be the good guys and sometimes the bad guys.One time my Dad was called into the Principal’s office because a parent had complained that I had sat on her son. This was before the days that schools were politically correct so I sat there bemused as my Dad and the Principal laughed at how I had bested a boy my own age in a play fight. I didn’t get punished by the school but my good friend Jared Curry did get his revenge as I had unintentionally humiliated him in front of his guy friends. He hunted me down the next day at lunchtime, tackled me and sat on me while his friends hooted with laughter. I had been running towards the safety of the girl’s toilets but didn’t quite make it. The next day I was at his place watching some puppies being born cause that is what mates do.

Tolkien lore led a Texas boy to suspension after he brought his “one ring” to school.

Kermit Elementary School officials called it a threat when the 9-year-old boy, Aiden Steward, in a playful act of make-believe, told a classmate he could make him disappear with a ring forged in fictional Middle Earth’s Mount Doom.

“It sounded unbelievable,” the boy’s father, Jason Steward, told the Daily News. He insists his son “didn’t mean anything by it.”

The Stewards had just watched “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies” days earlier, inspiring Aiden’s imagination and leading him to proclaim that he had in his possession the one ring to rule them all.

“Kids act out movies that they see. When I watched Superman as a kid, I went outside and tried to fly,” Steward said.
Aiden claimed Thursday he could put a ring on his friend’s head and make him invisible like Bilbo Baggins, who stole Gollum’s “precious” in J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy series “The Lord of the Rings.”

“I assure you my son lacks the magical powers necessary to threaten his friend’s existence,” the boy’s father later wrote in an email. “If he did, I’m sure he’d bring him right back.”

Principal Roxanne Greer declined to comment on the fourth-grader’s suspension, citing confidentiality policies, according to the Odessa American, who first reported Aiden’s troubles Friday.

The family moved to the Kermit Independent School District only six months ago, but it’s been nothing but headaches for Aiden. He’s already been suspended three times this school year.
Two of the disciplinary actions this year were in-school suspensions for referring to a classmate as black and bringing his favorite book to school: “The Big Book of Knowledge.”

“He loves that book. They were studying the solar system and he took it to school. He thought his teacher would be impressed,” Steward said.

But the teacher learned the popular children’s encyclopedia had a section on pregnancy, depicting a pregnant woman in an illustration, he explained.


It is so sad really. I remember my son when at primary school falling foul of political correctness. Boys in his class had been going through a wedgie phase for about a week. No one was safe. My son suffered a wedgie from his mate and later returned the favour. Another boy who wasn’t his friend gave him a wedgie so my son waited patiently for an opportunity to get him back. Like his Dad he believes revenge is a dish best served cold. Unfortunately by the time he got his own back Wedgies were weeks out of fashion. I was called into the Principal’s office. I explained the situation and was shocked to hear that the mother had claimed that it was a sexual assault.

Left wing campaign backfires against American Sniper

As is usual from the left wing, when something happens that they don’t like they bring out the ban hammer and attack all and sundry for their efforts.

They no longer believe in freedom of expression.

Ever since American Sniper came out there have been attacks from all the usual suspects. Michelle Obama even found time to attack the movie because it was about blokes and not women. The stupid cow didn’t even realise that it was a film about the life of a real person, Chris Kyle, an American hero. Instead she had to make a stupid political point about why it wasn’t a movie about a woman sniper.

All the left wing outrage has done though is guarantee the success of American Sniper.

American Sniper” has broken another record.    Read more »
