The child migrant crisis
July 28, 2014
By Mitchell Zimmerman
(NATIONAL) -- As the Department of Homeland Security tries to deliver busloads of Central American children and families to places of temporary safety, shrieking demonstrators in California, Arizona, and other states are barring the way and demanding these kids be dumped over the border.
These outbursts resemble the ugly mentality that, in 1939, prompted our government to send a ship with more than 900 German Jews aboard back to Europe where many were eventually killed by the Nazis. Like them, many of the Central American children will be murdered if they are returned home.
That’s what the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees concluded after interviewing hundreds of these kids.

(NATIONAL) -- One thing to be said for the women now heading the Federal Reserve and the IMF: compared to some of their predecessors, they are refreshingly honest. The Wall Street Journal reported on July 2nd:
"Two of the world’s most powerful women of finance sat down for a lengthy discussion Wednesday on the future of monetary policy in a post-crisis world: U.S. Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen and International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde. Before a veritable who’s-who in international economics packing the IMF’s largest conference hall, the two covered all the hottest topics in debate among the world’s central bankers, financiers and economists."

Oregon's wandering wolf OR-7 now has a good sized family to look after
July 26, 2014
(Rouge River-Siskiyou Nat'l Forest, OR.) -- Back from the edge of extinction, the wolves in Washington and Oregon are populating and making their homes quite nicely in the mountains and vasts forests of the Cascade Mountain range.
And that's good news for city folks who look at wolves from afar as majestic symbols of America's wild frontier, but not such good news for at least some of the Northwests's rural farmers and ranchers who worry about the wolves using their cattle, sheep and other livestock as a local supermarket.
|GOLD BAR'S "GOLD DUST DAYS" |
July 25, 2014
(GOLD BAR, WA) -- Bah-dah-bing, bah-dah-boom. Or alternately, BOOM! as you will hear in a loud canon shot fired by Civil War reenactors at Gold Bar's annual community festival Gold Dust Days which get underway today for a three-day run July 25, 26 and 27.
If you want to step back in time and expose your kids to some authentic American history and have fun while doing it - not to mention seeing some really cool guns, knives, sabers, canons, those old cap n' ball pistols and black powder rifles from the 1800's, oil lamps, old time kettles simmering beans on a campfire, period accurate clothing and more - you need to take them to the Civil War reenactors site at Gold Dust Days.
