US takes gay rights global, despite unsure welcome

Global Gay Rights

Participants of the Christopher Street Day parade through Berlin, Saturday June 21, 2014, with a float depicting the Statue of Liberty. The Obama administration has taken the U.S. gay rights revolution global, using American embassies across the world as outposts in a struggle that still hasn’t been won at home. Sometimes U.S. advice and encouragement is condemned as unacceptable meddling. And sometimes it can seem to backfire, increasing the pressure on those it is meant to help.(AP Photo/dpa, Joerg Carstensen) GERMANY OUT AUSTRIA OUT SWITZERLAND OUT

The Steps Liberty-Loving Americans Can Take

Exclusive: Alan Keyes challenges readers to respond to his clarion call

SOURCE

What follows is an excerpt from a reader’s comment on my column last week, with my reply. I suspect that there are millions of Americans who feel this reader’s sense of betrayal. I wonder how many of them, among the readers of this column, have the individual intellectual and moral courage to take even one readily accessible step toward doing something about it? Not long ago WND’s editor wrote an article recognizing that it might be long past time to take action. If enough people “let their yes be yes” in response to the simple challenge I make in this column, God knows what could happen.

Nigel Farage On “Wholesale, Violent Revolution” In Europe

May 1, 2013

In a little under two minutes, Nigel Farage sums up the utter farce that “the religion” that Europe has become. He explains, his fear is that what will break up the Euro, “is not the economics of it, but wholesale, violent revolution,” in the Mediterranean, and that is “all so unnecessary!” Speaking at Simon Black’s Offshore Tactics workshop, the so-called modern day Cicero goes on to point out that France’s Hollande is “the number 1 among idiots running countries around the world,” and worries that Merkel’s pending election means there will be more and more ‘tough talk and action’ as she shows the people she is in charge. Simply put he warns, alongside Ron Paul, that if you have money in European banks, “Get your money out,” because, “when the next phase of the disaster comes, they will come for you.”

Buchanan: “There Would Be A Revolution” If Government Confiscated Weapons

http://www.realclearpolitics.com

PAT BUCHANAN: There are three million ArmaLite rifles — those Bushmaster types — out there right now, and people are buying them like hotcakes. Every gun show, the sales are up enormously. Forty-one percent, they were up in December — for last December — which was a record year. John, what is common though, Eleanor [Clift] is correct, the push is going to come on three things: grandfather in the assault weapons that are here now; to try to outlaw assault weapons, outlaw magazines that carry more than 11 or 12 bullets; and also background checks at gun shows.

JOHN MCLAUGHLIN: With no Second Amendment, Congress could pass a law, as limited as this: banning assault rifles or as sweeping as prohibiting all private firearm ownership and requiring the surrender of all privately held firearms.

BUCHANAN: There would be a revolution in this country!

MCLAUGHLIN: Baloney! That doesn’t mean you can’t own one, but you have to put it in first and then go try —

BUCHANAN: There are 270 million guns in this country right now, John, and they’re adding to them at a rate of 16 million a year. (The McLaughlin Group, weekend of January 5, 2013)
