At 12:17 PM, on February 26, 1993, Islamic terrorists detonated a 1,300-pound bomb in the parking garage beneath the World Trade Center. Ed Smith joined me on Freedom Radio this morning in remembrance of his wife Monica. She and their soon to be born first child, a son they planned to name Eddie, were killed that day.

Oppression: noun, prolonged cruel or unjust treatment or control: the state of being subject to such treatment or control
Just days ago, Gateway Pundit published a story which infuriated this SHREW. Being away from the studio, I passed the info along to my colleagues at Freedom Radio and THE SHREW Tim Sumner and Anna Bee. The following is an excerpt from that article:
“A determination of incompetency will prohibit you (veteran) from purchasing, possessing, receiving or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions you may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L. No. 103-159, as implemented at 18 United States Code 924 (a)(2)”
Tim Sumner, co-founder of 911 Families for a Safe and Strong America did a little digging. The following audio is an excerpt from a discussion on our very own THE SHREW:
Just how widespread is THIS atrocity?
Note: Atrocity: noun, an extremely wicked or cruel act.
CIA officer Jose Rodriguez oversaw the enhanced interrogations of captured al Qaeda detainees until his retirement in 2007. He served as a station chief four times, to include for all of Latin America, prior to becoming the head of the Counterterrorism Center in May 2002 and, later, Director of the National Clandestine Service. Along with former CIA spokesman Bill Harlow, he co-authored ‘Hard Measures; How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives’.
Mr. Rodriguez joined me on Freedom Radio to discuss the destruction of much of al Qaeda’s organization. Mr. Rodriguez says, “Enhanced interrogations techniques led to the demise of bin Laden.” In the clip below, he explains how and sets the record straight for CIA Director-nominee John Brennan (and Senators Levin, Feinstein, and McCain) on courier Ahmed al-Kuwaiti. *

Note: Ahmed al-Kuwaiti was also known as Shaykh Abu Ahmed, Arshad Khan, Mohammed Arshad, and Sheikh Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti.
Having not read Frederick Hayek since 1970 or so, it was a thrill to receive an abridged edition of “The Road to Serfdom” from the Heritage Foundation.
“The Road to Serfdom” deserves the undivided attention of the reader. In a moment of indulgence time was set aside to dedicate myself to the effort, just before nap time of course. Being an undisciplined sort, rather than starting at the beginning, I allow fate to show me what it wants me most to see.
The booklet opens itself to the following:
“Individualism, in contrast to socialism and all other forms of totalitarianism, is based on the respect of Christianity for the individual and the belief that is desirable that men should be free to develop their own individual gifts and bents. This philosophy, first fully developed during the Renaissance, grew and spread to what we now know as Western Civilization. The general development of social development was one of freeing the individual from the ties which bound him in feudal society.”
In recent years we have witnessed a brazen attempt by the powers of socialism to infect and weaken the Bill of Rights and thus our individual God given freedoms. The ties that increasingly bind man in slavery to a feudal society are often tightened around his neck with his permission, a permission that once given is near impossible to rescind. The call for abandoning your freedom’s for “the greater good” is in actuality a call to abandon liberty for a new nationalism, in this case socialism, the precursor to fascism and replacement for faith.
As Hayek further states:
“They do not realize that democratic socialism, the great utopia of recent generations is not only unachievable — but produces something utterly different — the destruction of freedom itself.”
If you loosen the chains of your pet they may run off but he will also be free to protect you and care for you. Risk is necessary in order to truly live. God blessed us with the opportunity to make our living worthy of his creation.
God created man, not government. Life without bureaucrats may be considered by the haughty to be tarnished, but at least the lives will be our own.
