Gold Buying Contributing To Criminality?

In the following video I discuss the explosion of the gold buying culture in the United States and I illustrate how gold buying is indirectly contributing to a sharp rise in jewelry theft.

Protectionist dominoes are beginning to tumble across the world

Greece has been in turmoil for 11 days. The mood seems to have turned “pre-insurrectionary” in parts of Athens – to borrow from the Marxist handbook.

This is a foretaste of what the world may face as the “crisis of capitalism” – another Marxist phase making a comeback – starts to turn two hundred million lives upside down.

We are advancing to the political stage of this global train wreck. Regimes are being tested. Those relying on perma-boom to mask a lack of democratic or ancestral legitimacy may try to gain time by the usual methods: trade barriers, sabre-rattling, and barbed wire.

Cheap Shot on a Senior Citizen

Texas district will let teachers carry guns

A tiny Texas school district will allow teachers and staff members to carry concealed firearms to protect against school shootings, provided the gun-toting employees follow certain requirements.

The small community of Harrold in north Texas is a 30-minute drive from the Wilbarger County Sheriff’s Office, leaving students and teachers without protection, said David Thweatt, superintendent of the Harrold Independent School District. The lone campus of the 110-student district sits near a heavily traveled highway, which could make it a target, he argued.

“When the federal government started making schools gun-free zones, that’s when all of these shootings started. Why would you put it out there that a group of people can’t defend themselves? That’s like saying ‘sic ’em’ to a dog,” Thweatt said in a story published Friday on the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Web site.

Mexican Troops Cross Border, Hold Border Agent

Mexican troops crossed the border into Arizona and held a U.S. Border Patrol agent at gunpoint on Sunday, according to a published report.

Agents assigned to the Border Patrol at Ajo, Ariz., said the Mexican soldiers crossed the border into an isolated area southwest of Tucson and pointed rifles at the agent, who has not been identified.

The Mexicans withdrew after other American agents arrived on the scene, The Washington Times reports.

It’s not known why the troops crossed the border, but American law enforcement authorities have said that current and former Mexican soldiers have been hired to protect drug and immigrant smugglers.

Palestinians Face Home Demolitions Spree by Israel

By JONATHAN COOK

In the first hours of dawn, Nader Elayan was woken by a call from a neighbor warning him to hurry to the house he had almost finished building. By the time he arrived, it was too late: a bulldozer was tearing down the walls. More than 100 Israeli security guards held back local residents.

The demolition, carried out four years ago, has left Mr Elayan, his wife, Fidaa, who is now pregnant, and their two young children with nowhere to live but a single room in his brother’s cramped home. It is the only land he owns and he had invested all his savings in building the now destroyed house.

The Mosin Nagant: A Reasonably Priced Rifle

by John Ubele

Most of us have noticed a significant increase in crime in our local areas. We must realize that this spike in crime isn’t a fluke, the crime rate is going to continue to go up almost in direct proportion to our souring economy.

As the crime rate continues to increase law enforcement will have a more difficult time in effectively combating it. What this means is that increasingly people are going to have to take responsibility in securing their safety and that of their families.

If the economy does get bad enough it is possible that we could see civil disorder or rioting similar to what we saw in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. And the prospect of this should be more than enough incentive for us to start stocking up on firearms and ammunition while we still can.

Unfortunately most of us don’t have the money to spend on acquiring a significant arsenal of weapons to protect ourselves, which is why I suggest for those who are tight on money to at least purchase a Mosin Nagant rifle.

It’s possible to find these rifles in good condition for just over $100 and I’ve seen ones go in excellent condition for $160. The rifle fires the 7.62x54R cartridge. This cartridge is comparable in size and range to the US made .30-06 round.


In this video a sharp shooter is able to hit targets over 600 yards out with his scoped Nagant.

The rifle can only hold a maximum of five rounds but what it lacks in bullet capacity it makes up for in range. A Nagant fitted with a scope can hit targets at 1,000 yards.

The rifle is very reliable compared to most American made rifles. However there is one slight drawback to the rifle which is that it has a straight bolt instead of an angle bolt. Some shooters prefer this arrangement over an angle bolt. However there is a kit available that allows you to install an angle bolt on the rifle. The kit costs about $60 with shipping and includes scope mounts for the rifle. You can pick up the Mosin Nagant scope kit from cheaperthandirt.com.

You can purchase reasonably priced ammunition for the weapon from jgsales.com. They have Russian made 7.62x54R FMJ ammo in 440 round tins for just under $110 with the shipping. When you do purchase ammo for your rifle make sure that you buy non-corrosive rounds.

Lastly, be sure to shop around and try to find wholesalers for the rifle, otherwise you’ll find yourself paying more than you want for it.
