Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s decades-long battle against the federal government over grazing rights has heated to the point where militia groups have joined in and taken up spots against the feds who’ve circled his land — and talk is, they’re not afraid to open fire.

A spokesman for the one of the militia groups said as much to local 8 News Now: I’m not “afraid to shoot,” he said.

Margaret Houston, Mr. Bundy’s sister and a cancer survivor, said at a town hall gathering this week that the situation “was like a war zone” and that she felt “like I was not in the United States,” The Daily Mail reported.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal described it this way: “Serious bloodshed was narrowly avoided,” in a story about how dogs were unleashed on a woman who was pregnant while the rancher’s son was hit with a taser.

On Tuesday, armed Bureau of Land Management agents stormed Mr. Bundy’s property, escalating a court dispute that’s wound for two decades over the rancher’s refusal to pay for grazing fees.

Glenn Beck on Wednesday offered to fly Amy Nicholson of LA Weekly to his Dallas studios first class if she will read the review she wrote of “Lone Survivor” in the presence of former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, on whom the film is based.

In her article, Nicholson describes “Lone Survivor” as an embellished “jingoistic snuff film” with an attitude of “brown people bad, American people good.” She also claims the SEALs only faced around 10 enemy Taliban fighters, and seems to belittle the fact that Patrick Robinson helped write the book on which the film is based, because Luttrell was serving another tour of duty.

In addition to calling her a “vile, repugnant, and ignorant liar,” Beck took issue with the film critic’s “sanctimonious” attitude that somehow writing a book is more important than actually “living the story.”

“I mean this sincerely – I will fly you first class,” Beck said. “I will put you up at the Four Seasons … You will dine on the finest possible food, and you will come in here and you will sit down and speak these words to Marcus Luttrell. If you have the balls to say what you just said to Marcus Luttrell and back it up, go for it.”

But the multimedia personality predicted that the “coward” of an author will “hide” behind her cherished word processor while “people like Marcus Luttrell are out doing real things.”

Everyone knows Adolf Hitler committed suicide by gunshot in his underground bunker on April 30, 1945.

At least, that has been the conventional wisdom.

Now comes WND senior staff reporter Jerome R. Corsi’s new book, “Hunting Hitler: New Scientific Evidence That Hitler Escaped Germany.”

Examining declassified FBI and U.S. military intelligence files, Corsi makes a compelling case that U.S. investigators suspected from the beginning Hitler had escaped. For political purposes, the evidence indicates, they were willing to go along with the cover story that in the final days of World War II, Hitler married his mistress, Eva Braun, and the two took their lives in a joint-suicide ritual just before the Soviet army entered Berlin.

But the truth is, no one actually saw Hitler commit suicide. There are no photographs documenting a joint suicide of Hitler and Eva Braun, and the bodies of the two were never recovered or preserved for positive identification.

In 2009, Corsi pointed out, Nicholas Bellatoni, the Connecticut state archaeologist, was allowed by the Russian Federation State Archive in Moscow to examine skull fragments the Russians have claimed for decades are proof Hitler committed suicide.

Bellatoni’s startling findings prompted Corsi to investigate further.

“What caused me to question Hitler’s suicide was Bellatoni’s DNA analysis that proved conclusively the skull fragments belonged not to Hitler, but to a 40-year-old woman unrelated to Eva Braun,” Corsi said.

In “Hunting Hitler,” Corsi posits Hitler made his way to Argentina with the help of U.S. intelligence agents that had been secretly working with the Nazis since 1943. Allen Dulles, then an agent of the Office of Strategic Services, or OSS, the predecessor agency to the CIA, was communicating secretly with top Nazis from his office in Bern, Switzerland, Corsi said.

They are all Muslims except perhaps one or two. Just as it was right after 9/11, Muslims still are the most wanted terrorists in America…and likely, the world.

Frontpage Magazine In the wake of the horrific Boston Marathon bombing, media, politicians and left-wing commentators have gone to extraordinary lengths to opine on every possible motive and affiliation of the terrorists responsible — every motive except Jihad. Yet as the FBI’s official “Most Wanted Terrorists” list glaringly illustrates, there is no mystery behind the agenda of those compelled to commit mass atrocities against American citizens.

Sad, but predictable.
As Americans grieve the Boston Marathon bombings, the left-wing blogs are more interested in attacking conservatives and scoring political points.

So much for coming together in a time of crisis.

Of course, John Podesta’s Media Matters led the charge.

As the nation mourned the April 15 bombings at the Boston Marathon, media figures used the attacks to offer conspiracy theories, make Islamophobic comments, and push petty political and personal attacks…

…WaPo’s Rubin Uses Bombings To Take Apparent Jab At Washington Post Colleague Over Gosnell Coverage

Conservative Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin used the attacks to take an apparent shot at a colleague. Rubin tweeted that she was “not writing on Boston” because “it is a local crime story for now.”

As Alex Seitz-Wald explains at Salon, Rubin’s comments were a sarcastic reference to the controversy over media coverage of the murder trial of Kermit Gosnell. To the ire of conservatives, Rubin’s Post colleague Sarah Kliff tweeted last week that she wasn’t covering the Gosnell story because “I cover policy for the Washington Post, not local crime.”

After several people admonished Rubin on Twitter, she claimed that her remarks were simply a reference to the fact that she wanted to hold off on speculation about the attacks and avoid writing until more details became clear. In a post on her Washington Post blog, Rubin wrote:

I broke my own admonition on Twitter today, using poor phrasing to convey my dismay with outfits like the New York Post racing to be first (and wrong as it turned out) before they knew the extent of the attack. But that sort of observation should wait.

Hoft: Bombings Make Obama The “Worst. President. Ever.”

In an April 16 post on his Gateway Pundit blog, popular conservative blogger Jim Hoft claimed that the bombing made President Obama the “Worst. President. Ever.” He added that it’s “pathetic” that Obama did notlabel the bombings “terrorism” during his remarks after the event.

In a previous post, Hoft claimed that the decision to not immediately label the attack terrorism or “a terrorist attack” was “crazy” and “just nuts.”

What a horrible website.

In early March, Senator Rand Paul had America buzzing about drones. They were the highlight of his 13-hour filibuster against John Brennan, Barack Obama’s nominee to be director of the CIA. Paul’s intention was not to actually stop the nomination of Brennan – he knew the filibuster would fail. Instead, he wished to turn the nation’s attention to the use of drone-fired missiles to kill American citizens and others around the globe.

Paul repeatedly cited the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, part of our cherished Bill of Rights, saying: “The Fifth Amendment… should protect you from a president that might kill you with a drone.”

“You can’t be judge, jury and executioner all in one,” Paul warned.

Well, John Brennan tried to play that role when executing Americans at the behest of Barack Obama’s War on Terror strategy. Even George W. Bush put terrorists in Guantanamo Bay before bringing them to trial. Obama just dispensed with the trials and moved right to summary execution.

Sadly, Brennan was confirmed, and the missile-mounted drones continue to fly.

“God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.
The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is
wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts
they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions,
it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. …
And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not
warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of
resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as
to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost
in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
It is its natural manure.”

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un today told his troops to be ready for ‘all-out war’ and instructed them to ‘make the first gunfire’ if tensions with South Korea boil over.

He also promised a ‘great advance’ over the border between the two nations, shortly after the North announced that it had abandoned its peace treaty with the South.

The pariah state has launched a new round of warlike rhetoric in anger over tough new sanctions imposed on it.

The UN Security council voted to impose the fresh round of sanctions targeting North Korea’s economy and leadership in the wake of the country’s third nuclear test.

Now the country has announced it is cancelling all non-aggression pacts with its southern neighbour, closing its hotline with Seoul, and shutting their shared border point.

North Korea, which has already threatened a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the U.S., has said it will retaliate with ‘crushing strikes’ if enemies intrude into its territory ‘even an inch and fire even a single shell’.
