Transvalue. It’s all in the name.

Take value from one person; give it to another.  Should have seen this coming.

The Associated Press is reporting that authorities in eastern North Carolina say armed robbers stole $4 million in gold from a truck traveling on Interstate 95 from Florida to Massachusetts.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office said Monday the two security guards working for Transvalue Inc. of Miami reported pulling to the side of the interstate on Sunday evening after their vehicle began having mechanical problems.

They were then approached by three armed men driving a white van who ordered the guards to lie on the ground, tied their hands behind their backs and then marched them into nearby woods. Authorities say the male suspects then unloaded barrels filled with gold and made their getaway.

Barrels of gold.  I think I had that dream once.

Kind of makes you wonder what the origin and the intended destination of this little shipment were.  And I’m pretty sure that it was either a lucky guess by the banditos or, just perhaps, something else.

It has been reported that Transvalue is offering a $50,000 reward is the gold is returned to them.  To show how civic minded I am, I will offer $100,000 if it is given to me.  Just sayin’.

IRS gives “refunds” to illegals.

Nuts.  Just nuts.

The Internal Revenue Service is the perennial winner of “I don’t think that word means what you think it means” award.

The Service, as it is often called, has earned this name if you contemplate it in the agricultural sense.  Such as, when a bull services a cow.

The darlings at The Service are always quick to remind us that our tax return obligations are part of their “Voluntary Compliance” program.  And if you don’t voluntarily comply, they will seize your home, empty your bank accounts, and otherwise encourage you to voluntarily comply in the future.  Quite persuasive.

In the latest entry into to the IRS Lexicon is the word “refund.”  Ordinarily, this word conjures up a picture of getting back what you had paid earlier.  Like when you take an item back to the store, you get a refund.  Likewise, if you prepaid more in taxes than you actually owed, you would get some of your money back – a refund.

But that antiquated meaning is out the window now as The Service is providing refunds to illegal immigrants who never paid taxes or even filed a return in the first place:

The IRS is defending its decision to let illegal immigrants claim up to three years’ refunds on income even if they never paid income taxes, telling Congress in a new letter last week that agency lawyers have concluded getting a Social Security number triggers the ability to go back and ask for previous refunds.

President Obama’s new deportation amnesty could grant Social Security numbers to as many as 4 million illegal immigrants, making many of them eligible for tax refunds under the Earned Income Tax Credit even for years when they cheated on their taxes, working off the books and refusing to file tax returns.

“Section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code requires an SSN on the return, but a taxpayer claiming the EITC is not required to have an SSN before the close of the year for which the EITC is claimed,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen wrote in his letter to Sen. Charles E. Grassley on Wednesday.

The IRS’s chief lawyer had reached that conclusion in 2000, and the agency has newly confirmed it, Mr. Koskinen said.

Mr. Grassley said that made a mockery of the law, and said he’ll try to write a bill specifically prohibiting it.

“The tax code shouldn’t reward those who broke our immigration laws,” the Iowa Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said in a statement.

Feds raid a state political meeting.

Be careful little head what you think.


In a deliberate “show of force,” federal and local police forces raided a political meeting in

Texas, fingerprinting and photographing all attendees as well as confiscating all cell phones and personal recording devices.

Members of the Republic of Texas, a secession movement dedicated to restoring Texas as an independent constitutional republic, had gathered Feb. 14 in a Bryan, Texas, meeting hall along with public onlookers. They were debating issues of currency, international relations and celebrating the birthday of one of their oldest members. The group, which describes itself as “congenial and unimposing,” maintains a small working government, including official currency, congress and courts.

No jobs = Muslim terrorism. Oh. Wait.

The Obama Administration:  All the News that Fits.

In the face of an unrelenting stream of Muslim-initiated terrorism, the Obama Administration continues to assure us that it/they are all good.  These aren’t even Muslims after all, just unwashed feral offspring of unwashed feral dogs . . . or something like that . . . who have just co-opted the Muslim moniker.   Correct me if I’m wrong here, but isn’t that akin bragging about having leprosy?

Indeed Obama’s own State Department lackey, Marie Harf, assured us that if we really want to get ahead of terrorism, we’ll push for a good jobs programs in these nations.  You see, it’s a lack of meaningful jobs that cause young men to seek out fame and fortune by sawing off civilians’ heads, burning alive those you capture, and just generally raping, pillaging, and plundering the whole barren countryside, especially against Christians.

Said Ms. Harf:

The key to stopping the Islamic State’s bloody march through Iraq and Syria? Jobs.

That’s what US State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf [rhymes with . . .] said Monday night when asked on MSNBC’s talk show “Hardball” what America and its allies are doing to end the militant group’s reign of terror in the region.

And if you’re one of those who don’t quite see it Harf’s way, you’re an idiot who doesn’t understand nuance.

Fair enough.  Let’s assume that she’s correct.  It logically follows then that the more deprived  the individual is, the more depraved will be his actions; the poorer his demographic, the more pronounced his barbarism.

Let’s see, if only would could have an example.  Oh, wait.  Seems we’ve identified one of barbarism’s finest: the murderous “Jihadi John,”  who has wielded the business end of a butcher knife against hapless civilians who posed no threat to him or his way of life.

Mohammed Emwazi, formely known as Jihadi John, is a Kuwati who grew up in London.  He attended St. Magdelan’s Church of England School in his elementary years and college at the University of Westminster where he worked on his degree in Information Systems and Business Management.

Mohammed Emwazi

The 26-year-old who became the masked face of the notorious terror organization was identified as the figure seen in several videos of hostages being beheaded.

Turns out that the young Mohammed not only had a job, but he was a successful salesman whose former boss called him “the best employee we ever had.”

And earlier this week and American citizen who was a prominent blogger known for speaking out against religious extremism was hacked to death by a gang of – you guessed it – Muslims, as he walked through Bangladesh’s capital with his wife, police said Friday.

And nothing clears up accusations of extremism like chopping a guy up on a busy city street.  One can only imagine how hard these impetuous young thugs must have been looking for a job.

It’s almost like our Beloved Dictator (and I use that term in the North Korean sense) and the members of his regime might be – I dunno – lying to us.

ISIS Genocide against Christians in Syria.

Former Navy Seal:  ISIS Wiping Out Syrian Christians.

CNN’s Erin Burnett seems to be trying to get at the truth here.  But, being with CNN, she just can’t help herself.  She asserts that so much of Islam’s history “contains so many instances of being incredibly tolerant of other religions . . . ”

Umm, Erin, cite one of these instances. Just one.

From our Glorious Dictator: Banning AR-15 ammo.

Most popular round among hunters, sportsmen, and target shooting.  Not among criminals.

President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

You know, the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution presuppose and reflect that any other rights that come under governmental assault can be safeguarded by the citizenry.

Gutting the Second Amendment makes the rest of the rights moot.

ISIS Threatens to Kill

Matt Archbold over at Creative Minority Report posted this.  Because I agree with him that we need to increase political pressure and not allow it to be swept under the rug, I re-post it here.  As Matt suggests: Pray.

God have mercy on us all.

Ultimatum: ISIS To Kill 150 Christians Unless Obama Stops Airstrikes

They’re assuming that President Obama cares all that much:


ISIS is clearly feeling the pain after weeks of intense air strikes against it by the U.S.- led coalition fighting the spread of the terrorist organization in the Middle East.

Employing its familiar tactics, the Islamic State is now threatening to execute the 150 Assyrian Christians they have taken hostage in Syria.

While initial reports suggested that between 70 and 100 people had been taken captive, according to the Daily Mail the true figure is thought to be almost double, including many women, children and elderly people.

It is thought that a new ISIS video is in the making which will address American President Barack Obama. It will tell him that if the air strikes don’t stop, the 150 Christian hostages will be killed.

Can we be real about this? Unless this is on the top of news broadcasts and there is significant political pressure this too will be swept under the rug.

I’m not saying that Obama should capitulate. He shouldn’t. But the current policy is clearly not working. These Christians will likely be killed. And more will follow.

Could you imagine any other group (other than Jews) being targeted in such a clear and horrific way that would only bring yawns and ho-hums.

Hey, at least these 150 Christians will never get on their high horse.

Equal pay for equal work.

Hillary Clinton is famous for, among other things, allegedly championing “women’s causes” which include the oft repeated mantra of equal pay for equal work.  Yet the Hillary, the presidential aspirant, paid the women on her senatorial staff an average of only 72% of what her male staffers earned.

Now, of course, this begs the question about which staffers were doing what kind of work.  Clearly, it’s a tacit admission that the men on her staff were doing superior work than the women.  And the cast of The View wasted no time in circling the wagons around their beloved Hillary, even though Whoopi Goldberg’s pay (funny, she doesn’t look Jewish to me) is equal to that of the women on the panel.   But I digress.

The mainstream media seems to be in a perpetual choking fit over it’s own hypocrisy over their quest for equality.  Enter the discussion of the pending execution of Kelly Gissendaner in the state of Georgia, a lass who CNN can’t help but refer to as “a lady.”  Fortunately, a picture is worth a thousand words.  And the last meal request is pretty helpful too.

This story seemingly has it all, including a reference to the last woman executed in Georgia was an African-American (although there is no evidence she ever visited Africa or even knew any one from the Dark Continent).  Gissendaner, through her boyfriend/accomplice, was convicted for murdering her husband.  The boyfriend/accomplice rolled over faster than a Kardashian on a first date and was the star witness in the prosecution.  For his betrayal, he drew a twenty-five year sentence.

While there is plenty to talk about here – the legitimacy of capital punishment, the disparity in her sentence compared to her accomplice/paramour/betrayer –  the mainstream media needs to decide if it wants equality or not.  Or are some people more equal than others?

Mitch McConnell caves on Amnesty

Everyone considers him the coward of the county.

With the Department of Homeland Security set to shut down on Saturday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday offered Senate Democrats everything they wanted. And then, as with mice and cookies, they asked for some more.

McConnell told reporters Tuesday that after two months of begging, he would finally agree to give Democrats a clean vote to fund DHS through the end of the fiscal year. The funding, based on an agreement between Democrat and Republican appropriators last year, would come with no strings attached.

Read of the rest of the treachery here.

Cowards.  Damn cowards.  I hear McConnell is also selling a French rifle; dropped only once.
