Viral Video: 7 Year Old Texas Girl Shoots First Deer With AR Style Rifle

Watch the priceless reaction from the young hunter

 

A Texas man, Cody Clapper, uploaded a video of his seven-year-old daughter shooting her first deer onto his Facebook page and received more feedback than expected.


The Facebook post got over 2 million views and was picked up by a local Fox affiliate in Dallas who received 6.8 million views on their re-post of the video.

Footage like this is important to share in a climate where so many people are misinformed about gun culture, such as the NY Daily News writer who described shooting an AR-15 as a nightmarish experience.
The recoil bruised my shoulder, which can happen if you don’t know what you’re doing. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary form of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.
Clapper told those who disagree with his parenting, “If you think that you might be offended by this video that has my daughter shooting a deer with a modern hunting rifle, please keep scrolling.”

Bombshell: Breitbart Murdered After Exposing Clinton Pedo Ring


Andrew Breitbart may have been murdered after uncovering evidence of a Washington pedophile ring that directly implicated the Clinton's.
Andrew Breitbart may have been murdered after uncovering evidence of a pedophile ring in Washington D.C. that directly implicated the Clinton’s. 

According to Internet sleuths, Breitbart was very vocal that Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, John Podesta, was connected to a child sex ring in Washington that very likely included the Clinton’s and their cronies.

Just weeks after Andrew Brietbart began going public on his findings, he was found dead under mysterious circumstances. Worryingly, his coroner was found dead just weeks later too.

A tweet by Mr. Breitbart shortly before his March 1, 2012, death is now raising questions as to whether his death may have been a murder in an attempt to silence him.

How prog-guru John Podesta isn’t household name as world class underage sex slave op cover-upperer defending unspeakable dregs escapes me,” Breitbart tweeted in 2011.
Morningnewsusa.com reports:
According to Infowars, in a documentary called “Hating Breitbart”, Andrew showed his extreme contempt for Podesta. In the film, he said that he knew things about the murky adviser for Obama and Clinton.
These were things, Breitbart said, which were not yet publication.
“What’s in your closet, John Podesta? Do you want us to play these games? Breitbart asked in the film.

“Because we are playing to win.”

Furthermore, now his mysterious death was being revisited by internet sleuths and investigative journalists. It was being alleged that knowledge about Podesta’s dirty secrets and Breitbart’s mysterious death were connected.
The tweet had erupted a new volcanic turn for internet detectives. While the pedophile scandal at the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria had reigned the Internet for weeks, this tweet just took the issue to the next level.

Washington Times said that with the tweet out and Breitbart’s mysterious death, net sleuths were thinking that they are onto something very incriminating.
Pizzagate Podesta: Breitbart’s Coroner Died Mysteriously
Few weeks after Brietbart’s death, his coroner also passed away. Michael Cormier also had a suspicious and sudden death.

Cormier was a seemingly-healthy 61-year-old man. He was working as the L.A. Department coroner technician.

He became quite ill at his home and was swiftly taken to the hospital. However, he died suddenly, with doctors unable to confirm the cause of his death.
According to ABC 7, the LAPD and the county coroner said they were unsure whether Cormier might have ingested poison, possibly arsenic. Moreover, they also said that he surely did not die of natural causes.

“If the attending doctor or physician is not willing to sign off on the death certificate, then it becomes an investigation to determine the actual cause of death,” said LAPD Lt. Andy Neiman.

It was also reported that Cormier died on the same day the officials had released their preliminary autopsy report regarding Breitbart’s death. These two instantly became related incidents to conspiracy theorists.

What Is Going On?


What Is Going On? Massive Group of Migrants Flood US Border with Mexico

(NESARA NOTE:  An anonymous incoming intel report states that the planned invasion of the united states continues as Russia and China, with the help of accompanying nations (among them Mexico and Cuba), prepare to invade and take down our country. Incoming reports state that literally BUS LOADS of 'migrants' are being allowed (as directed by the administration) to cross our southern borders non-stop - occupants supposedly from Central and South America. There has also been an anonymous intel report issued in the past 4 days that there are 10 wartime submarines in transit now in the Pacific Ocean, making their way to our nation's western shores.  The question remains if our nation will maintain a state of peaceful transition from now to the January 2017 presidential inauguration, as it appears there will NOT be a Trump inauguration. IS THIS THE UNDERLYING REASON WHY CHINA AND THE TRAITOROUS DEMOCRATS ARE DENYING THE AMERICANS THEIR OPPORTUNITY TO EXCHANGE THEIR CURRENCIES?  Please give this prayerful thought.)

Feds Build Chilling 500 Bed Facility in Rural Texas


ALERT: Feds  Build  Chilling  500  Bed  Facility  in  Rural  Texas  to  Accommodate  Unstoppable  Flow  of  Illegals

December 2 2016

U.S. Customs and Border Protection recently announced plans to build a temporary facility in south Texas to house illegal immigrants crossing the border.

The facility will be built near the Donna-Rio Bravo International Bridge in Donna, Texas, according to Breitbart, and will hold up to 500 people.

Those individuals are waiting for transfer to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to a statement provided by Customs and Border Protection to KGBT.

The statement said that the CBP would ensure that basic needs of those in custody are met, adding that the organization would also perform regular assessments in order to expand the facility or keep it temporary. 

That decision would be based on the volume of people arriving in the country. 

CBP said it was prepared to add housing, beds, toilets and other facilities as needed.

The Department of Homeland Security said the number of border apprehensions was between 7,000 and 10,000 more per month than usual, reported the Washington Examiner.

The number of illegal immigrants entering the country has risen every month since February, Breitbart reported. In October, the number of family unit aliens captured increased 37 percent, and *unaccompanied alien children increased by 19 percent. (*for the pedophiles and snuff films?)

The total number of apprehensions in August, September and October was higher than in the last five years, and we simply have no way to stop it under the Obama administration’s lax border security.

CBP said it would keep the temporary facilities open until the number of illegals crossing the border returns to a 'normal level'. 

The fact that facility was being constructed in rural Texas means that there is an expectation of more of the same.

At least we have hope for an end in sight come January when President-elect Donald Trump will be inaugurated. (??)

http://conservativetribune.com/feds-build-facility-texas-why/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=PostUp&utm_campaign=ConservativeBrief&utm_content=2016-12-02

* It was reported to Americans months ago that Dunford and even Trump promised to round up all illegals and muslims and return them to their country of origin.  

Our nation cannot support these people, nor do they assimilate in to our society.  Our own people need help.  The social security, medical and housing assistance Americans  had received previously has been all but eliminated due to financing the illegals and 'immigrant' muslims to live lavishly in our nation on our dimes, in many situations above that of Americans. 

The acceptable custom in our nation is for one wife/mother, and yet the muslim jihadis are bringing in as many as 4 'wives' and perhaps more (prostitutes called 'sisters', cousins', etc) under differing categories.  The monies they are receiving from their deceitful declarations affords them an upper income lifestyle from the financial 'benefits' derived from the sweat off the backs of the hard working Americans. 

This HAS TO STOP! What utter fools we are to continue to allow this unfair and deceitful procedure to be continued at our expense.

What surprises are we in for if/when Trump is sworn in on January 20th as 'president'?  

OR traitor Paul Ryan?

Have you NOTICED HOW MANY CABAL MEMBERS are being placed in the higher positions in this 'new government'?  

How many in the subserviant positions? 

Has this nation been sold out once again by coup? 

The Republic has not been announced and, even if it was, is the 'Republic' simply yet another COVER for a French corporation and French occupation?

Have traitors within simply changed our 'masters' from England to France? 

And, don't forget, the Vati-CON is the world slave master and ALL the nations report to this reptoid demon who initiates ALL the wars on this planet, decides who is to live and who is to die, who or what is to be worshipped, and how much of anything - including food, land, monies, and even our health - we are entitled to use while we are yet 'alive' on the planet.

This, too, must be STOPPED immediately.

Obama’s Legacy In 9 Charts


REALITY: Obama’s  Legacy  Summed  Up  In  9  Charts  Will  Have  You  Thrilled  Trump  Won



Obama’s legacy isn’t all that much to brag about. Really, it ushered in the demise of Americans’ freedoms. The only thing Obama was good at was making speeches. He by far was the weakest leader our nation has ever seen.
The numbers and ways this president has failed are numerous........
        - Feckless foreign policy leading to a complete and total meltdown in the middle-east; 
      - More debt added than the previous 43 presidents combined; 
      - Civil unrest resulting in ten riots, more than one per year, during his tenure; 
      - Citizens hunting (and killing) police in the streets;    
      - Lies told in order to pass a piece of legislation bearing his name that collapsed and cost the American taxpayer two trillion dollars.
On and on it goes.
But the true legacy Barack Hussein Obama will be remembered for is his decimation of the Democrat Party. Obama has destroyed Democrats from coast-to-coast in a manner that is astonishing. Obama’s first midterm election (2010) was disastrous for Democrats.
With the birth of the Tea Party movement Republicans gained 63 seats in the House, the largest midterm seat change since 1938, and six Senate seats. That year Republicans gained a record pickup of 680 seats in state legislative races, giving R’s control of 26 state legislatures and dropping D’s to just 15 of 50. Republicans also took 11 governorships from the Democrats for a total of 29. 54 incumbents lost re-election bids that year, 52 were Democrats.
Next, 2014 midterms. Up for grabs, all 435 House seats, 36 Senate seats, 38 governorships, 46 state legislatures. Though it didn’t seem possible, Democrat defeats in 2010 were dwarfed.
Republicans gained control of the U.S. Senate for the first time since 2006, increased an already commanding majority in the House and gained two more governorships.
Things got much worse for Democrats. 2014 saw a sweeping in of the largest Republican majority in nearly a century, 54 seats in the Senate, 247 in the House, 31 governorships, and 68 state legislative chambers.
Republicans gained their largest majority in Congress and largest majority of state legislatures since 1928.

Obama Enacts Rules to Take $3,000 From EVERY American


OUTRAGE:  Before  Leaving,  Obama Enacts  Rules  to  Take  $3,000  From  EVERY  American

 December 2 2016

Even though 'president' Barack Obama only has less than two months left in office, he hasn’t stopped his liberal agenda, and he hasn’t learned that the American people are tired of regulations.

American Action Forum reported that America has just passed an important milestone — the 10-year regulatory burden on Americans has now passed $1 trillion.

New Environmental Protection Agency regulations on trucks were what finally pushed the regulation costs over $1 trillion.

Put another way, each American now will have to fork over a one-time payment of $3,080 for these new regulations, or an annual cost of about $540.

Thanks, Obama!

These “payments” could come in any number of ways, such as fewer jobs and higher taxes — pretty much all of the negatives associated with having a bloated and corrupt federal government.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, thanks to all these new regulations, the estimated number of hours for all the paperwork is 754,208,700 hours, according to the report.  There are 8,760 hours in a year, so the paperwork for these regulations would only take roughly 86,097 years for one person to complete — or, more realistically, the paperwork would require over 377,000 people working full-time at 2,000 hours per week to process. None of their work will add any value to the U.S. economy.

And Obama is probably going to try to push through more regulations before he leaves office.

Can we make the lives of Americans even more miserable before Obama moves out of the White House? “Yes, we can!”

This is exactly why the Founders wanted to keep the size of government small. Trump promised during the campaign, and it was posted on his website, that he would cut back federal regulations drastically.

We can’t afford this much regulation. While there is no arguing that some regulation is a necessary evil, the 'federal government' has gone completely off the rails with the number of regulations being enacted, almost all of them by un-elected career bureaucrats.

It’s time to cut back these regulations, ease the financial burden on taxpayers and let the economy grow once again.  

Trump better follow through on his promises — or else America is in serious trouble.

What else you think Obama has planned before he leaves office.
Which regulations would like to see Trump rollback?

“WE SMELL A RAT IN THE WOOD PILE”

Ab-ra-ca-dab-ra … here are our thoughts on the rat’s

in the wood pile…. 
Have you ever experienced a ‘bait and switch’ advertising scheme when you were in the process of buying something… i.e., a car or home OR SOMETHING WORTH  A TON OF DOUGH….??


After thoroughly reviewing information provided to us earlier todaythe following is our opinion based upon our group’s collective logic and reasoning  

Wells Fargo and all the banks were approved by the IMF for  exchanging the GCR currencies from the very beginning …..

Wells Fargo has been tranching  our R.V. moneys on their platforms through their bank under ‘administrative holds’ ….and ….probably running BULLET TRADES as well, as they offer a much quicker return, most offering returns in  3-10 days….

We exposed Wells Fargo’s involvement in the trades in our article published on the NESARA Blogspot website, which resulted in a phone call to John MacHaffie by Wells Fargo President  John Stumpf  demanding to know how we found out about the trades they were doing, and demanding our expose’ of those trades be removed immediately from the website!

Most likely Wells Fargo deposited the profits from their trade in an OFF-Shore TRUST THAT HAS UNLAWFULLY (?) ACCUMULATED HUGE AMOUNTS OFF THOSE TRADES (Ga-Zillions of zillions of Dough-re-meeee)

This was done to get ready for the SCAM  that those of us who have been delayed continually from exchanging our currencies are now squarely facing  –  an ‘in your face’ scam.

NOW we are being told that Wells Fargo was not trust worthy to be entrusted with the processing of the currency exchanges (PROBABLY SO) ….BUT apparently Wells Fargo WAS ‘trust worthy” all the years they pulled off the heist of a life time to make ENORMOUS  PROFITS in the TRADES for the CABAL…...To be  ”Great Again“… MANY FOLKS HAD TO BE IN ON THIS…

So, now comes the announcement that ‘they’ are NOW going to use their sister BANK (HSBC) with one of the worst reputations in banking ever, and was and still is one of the most crooked BANKS on this planet  ever  to exchange our currencies for literally pennies on the Dollar…. And all the while Wells Fargo keeps all the moola they stole from their participation in their crooked platform trades using OUR R.V. money….

We were always told that China had to have the high rates as the Zim was going to be the reserve currency for ALL OF AFRICA and it was going to benefit them by paying us the high rates over a period of time and this was not going to cost them (the Chinese) a thing to do so.

So, after analyzing  the Wells Fargo banking activities, rates quoted over months, Reno versus street rates, delays and excuses and all manner of exchanging with Wells Fargo crap most of us are familiar with, here is what we think is going on with the  BANKSTERS

Those handling the RV are hoping we forget about the ba-zillions-and ga-zillons and tra-zillions they have amassed via the platform trades and proceed to exchange us (using pennies on the dollar)  through HSBC and hope we don’t see this rat in the wood pile…. And of course we, being in desperation, will do it to just get it over with thinking  ‘Well, 13 cents to 22 cents is good enough’ when they are making many thousands of times what  THEY ARE STOKING THE COFFERS FOR THE CABAL, AND OTHERS IN ON THIS SCAM…

QUESTION….

WHAT DID WELLS FARGO (AND CHINA) DO WITH THE HUGE PROFITS THEY MADE OVER THE PAST 3 TO 4 YEARS OF OUR BEING FORCED TO WAIT TO EXCHANGE WHILE WELLS FARGO WAS HOLDING THE MONEY TO BE USED FOR OUR RV EXCHANGES AND WAS DOING  NON-STOP PLATFORM TRADES??…

WE ARE NOT SEEING THIS NOW AT ALL..THINK ABOUT THIS!!!!  WHAT DID WELLS FARGO AND ‘FRIENDS’ DO WITH … ALL …THIS MONEY ….THAT THEY ESSENTIALLY STOLE FROM  WE THE PEOPLE / CURRENCY EXCHANGERS??

IN OUR OPINION……WELLS FARGO IS MAKING OFF LIKE BANDITS AND STEALING MONEY FROM US AS THEY THINK WE ARE STUPID AND CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY ARE PULLING OFF … THE CON-JOB OF A LIFE TIME…IT WILL TAKE US ALL TO PUT AN IMMEDIATE STOP TO THIS OR WE AGAIN WILL WIND UP TAKING IT IN THE SHORTS … WHILE THE CABAL BANKSTERS CONTINUE TO RAPE THE PEOPLE  AND STEAL OUR BLESSINGS

PLEASE  POST OUR ANONYMOUS COMMENTS AND LET THEM KNOW WHAT YOU THINK…..ALSO SEND THIS TO OTHERS SO THEY WILL BE INFORMED.... WE ARE ALSO BEING TOLD NOT TO SIGN ANY NDA!!!    

BEING SHORTED FUNDS MAY NOT ALLOW SOME OF US TO BE ABLE TO COMPLETE OUR PROJECTS TO HELP THE  PEOPLE AND REALLY MAKE THE  COUNTRY …..WHOLE AGAIN!!!

IN OTHER WORDS THE  CABAL BANKSTERS ARE STILL TRYING TO STEAL OUR MONEY THE LORD INTENDED US TO HAVE!!!

Can anyone get this to Kent Dunn and Gary Larabee...
THERE IS SUPPOSED TO BE ANNOUNCEMENTS TONIGHT!!

Ann Romney Trust Invested In Sex Site Backpage.com


ANN  ROMNEY  TRUST  INVESTED  IN  GOLDMAN  SACHS  FUND  THAT  EXITED  SEX  SITE  BACKPAGE.COM 




04/03/2012 08:48 am ET
By Greg Roumeliotis



A blind trust in the name of Ann Romney, wife of Republican U.S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, was an investor in a fund run by Goldman Sachs Group Inc that had invested in a media company which critics say facilitates sex trafficking

While there is no suggestion the Romneys knew about the investment, the disclosure highlights the difficulty for politicians and their families when they invest in blind trusts that are supposed to protect them from conflicts of interest and ethical questions.

According to an August 2011 financial disclosure report by the Romneys, Ann Romney’s blind trust had an investment valued between $15,001 and $50,000 in Goldman’s GS Capital Partners III.

Goldman said on Sunday that GS Capital Partners III signed a deal last Friday to sell its 16 percent stake in Village Voice Media, which owns the website Backpage.com, back to management.

Critics argue that Backpage.com facilitates the trafficking of underage prostitutes and sex slaves, although others question that.
Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Romney, stressed that the funds were managed on a blind basis, “so the trustee, not the Romneys, makes their investment decisions.”

“Furthermore, the trustee invests in funds but, as a passive investor, has no control over the funds’ investments.”

Goldman’s divestiture is the latest development in a growing controversy over online adult advertising that has pitted celebrities, law enforcement officials, members of Congress and New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof against Village Voice Media.

The private media company has the largest share of revenue in the United States from online advertising of adult services.

It has responded aggressively, challenging critics’ data with editorial investigations and claiming that it goes to far greater lengths than competitors in cooperating with law enforcement and monitoring its ads for illegal activity.

The original size and timing of the blind-trust investments were not disclosed, though in 2007 the Ann Romney trust reported during Mitt Romney’s previous failed attempt to get nominated as Republican presidential candidate that its investment in the Goldman fund was then worth between $100,001 and $250,000. 

In Ann Romney’s 2010 tax return, which was made publicly available in January, the trust’s investment in the Goldman fund was reported as showing a $28,226 loss.

Goldman could not be immediately reached for comment on questions about the Ann Romney trust investment. 

GS Capital Partners III invested $30 million in the Village Voice in 2000. This was a fraction of fund’s capital, which totaled $2.78 billion.

Goldman Sachs said the fund lost the vast majority of its investment when it sold its Village Voice stake last week.
