In 2008, Barack Obama promised a fundamental transformation of America. Where that promise has gone unfulfilled the most is in areas of sexual and racial discrimination. What’s worse is the official sanction given to such discrimination. Let’s look at some of it.
Trump’s anti-free trade stand is similar to Hillary’s, but unlike her, he is not a hostage of the unions. Trump’s campaign package comes in a somewhat unattractive wrapping for many people, but the content is way more important than form. It is a stark choice between freedom and socialist slavery.
The government has been “doing” things for quite some time now and, gosh, we haven’t gotten any safer. Gee, imagine that! But what they have succeeded in doing is convincing people that in government lies the solution. When every problem is a nail, the government is always the right tool for the job, am I correct so far? However, what people forget to realize is that when problems are nails, the government is actually a tape measure. They’ll measure the length of the nail, its diameter, the thickness of the plank the nail is going into and, at last, discuss this with other tape measure carrying officials. At some point in the future, the nails cease to be as much of an everyday problem as are the fifteen new government agencies created to regulate the nails.
This the attitude of the globalists: arrogant, dismissive of the voters. They are not going to maintain control for another generation. They will cry: “It’s not fair. We knew what was good for the world.”
The mainstream media have shown themselves to be content to rely on government narratives that suit the administration in power -- especially if it’s Democratic -- instead of pushing for real facts to substantiate those narratives. As the 20th anniversary of TWA Flight 800 nears, the media should reopen this case and demand that the government explain why it continues to cover up the facts.
If the government secretly can put an American’s name on a secret list and, as a result, his liberty is lost, then there are no freedoms — just government-granted privileges. And if it can do this to the natural rights to travel and self-defense, can other fundamental rights be far behind?
The world cannot continue to grow naturally before the current debt of $230 trillion together with the $1.5 quadrillion of derivatives have all disappeared. This must and will happen at some point in the not too distant future. The result will be an implosive depression that will make most debt disappear and assets such as stocks, property and bonds to decline by 90% or more. Of course that seems impossible today but the spikes in the charts above all indicate that this is likely. And based on logic this has to happen. It is only a question of when. The consequences will be totally devastating for the world economy and for almost all human beings.
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton could have added that voters have a short memory. Her former boss, President Barack Obama, has overseen the worst economic recovery in the post-World War II era. Despite this, Obama has a 51 percent approval rating. Hillary is right; the average Democrat voter is just plain stupid, a trait which should serve her well in November.
The new hordes of Third World immigrants are meant to be the “soldiers” in this war who are expected to provide all the political support needed because: 1) they will be bought off with welfare; and 2) they will remain ignorant of the importance of a free society and the ideas taken from Western civilization that support it, thanks to the PC-ization of education. That’s the plan, anyway. Will we allow these neo-communists to destroy our country and our civilization?
If you’ve been caught up in the circus that is the presidential election, you’ve likely missed the latest news about all the ways in which the government continues to erode our freedoms, undermine our sovereignty, abuse our trust, invade our homes, invade our privacy, destroy our property, hijack our bank accounts, and generally render itself above the law.
Washington is putting its nuclear missiles on Russia’s borders, conducting war games on Russia’s borders, and stationing its Navy off Russia’s coasts in the Black and Baltic seas. To cover up its reckless, irresponsible aggression toward a nuclear power, Washington accuses Russia of aggression.
Security lighting is the best preventative measure that you can take for home security. This may include outdoor motion lights or other such lighting for burglary deterrence and nighttime security purposes.
To begin the discussion of defending against an ostensibly unarmed attacker, we must first understand the need to recognize an attack. Both police and civilians face this dilemma, but police are given more training in reading body language and responding than are most civilians. Few people can beat a drawn gun or a thrown punch. We must learn always to understand where we are, what we are doing, and what is going on around us.
Shooting at paper targets is great; it’s going to help your accuracy, your muscle memory, and it’s a hell of a lot of fun. Unfortunately, when it comes to real-world self-defense those paper targets aren’t preparing you for the stressful realities of what it really takes to draw your weapon in defense.
If you have time, space, and inclination, you can turn your backyard into an edible garden that grows not only vegetables but a variety of fruit. Most supermarkets stock commercially cultivated fruits from all over the world, and all season long, so growing those may seem like a waste of time and effort. But there are many rare and unique fruits out there for you to grow and enjoy.
Lavender is a beautiful perennial evergreen plant that hails from southern Europe and the mountain regions located on the western border of the Mediterranean and also North and East Africa, Arabia, India and the Canary Island. Today, this highly versatile plant is grown all over the world for both personal as well as commercial use.
It’s a common weed, easily found all over the world. It’s edible and has an abundance of nutrients, including protein, vitamins and minerals. Externally, it is used for wounds, even on open skin, for drawing out toxins and increasing the permeability of bacterial cell walls.
A pergola is an outdoor structure that a lot of people can add to their property to provide a good amount of shade. If you want to build your own as a DIY project, then check out these pergola plans and ideas for your property.
When preparing for a long term emergency, it’s good to have a variety of foods stored away for times when you might not be able to get to a grocery store for a while. “Food fatigue” is a real thing, causing people to choose to starve instead of eating the same thing over and over again.
An official media affiliate of the Islamic State released a new video this weekend praising the Orlando attack, calling for similar attacks in multiple languages and portraying a suicide bomber striking Times Square.
The European Union is an “empire that is hugely bureaucratic,” warns Marc Faber, telling CNBC that he thinks that “a Brexit would be bullish for global economic growth,” because “it would give other countries incentive to leave the badly organized EU.” The Gloom, Boom & Doom-er explained that Brexit is a risk Britain should be willing to take, and that it would not be a disaster, “on the contrary, it would be the best thing for Britain that would ever happen!”
A pro-ISIS “hacking” group calling itself the United Cyber Caliphate distributed its latest “kill” list this week. The group claims the list includes names, addresses, and email addresses belonging to 8,318 people, making it one of the longest target lists ISIS-affiliated groups have distributed.
The fact that opioid painkillers have addictive properties is not a secret. But the LA Times investigation revealed something that wasn’t widely known, and is perhaps more disturbing: the maker of one of the most popular opioid painkillers pushed doctors to adhere to a dosing schedule that, as it turns out, makes it more likely for patients to become addicts.
A group of researchers at Harvard Medical School has found that medical industry payments to physicians in Massachusetts are associated with higher rates of prescribing brand-name drugs that treat high cholesterol.The study’s finding, published today in JAMA Internal Medicine, is in line with a ProPublica analysis and story from March, which showed that physicians who receive industry money tend to prescribe higher rates of brand-name drugs — and thus, lower rates of similarly effective, more affordable generic drugs — when compared to peers.
In response to the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, the U.S. House Democrats are making fools of themselves in their sit-in filibuster, as they display their childishness and ignorance on the gun control issue. Their purely emotional calls for more gun control and denying guns to people whose names are placed on a no-fly list or a terrorist watch list without due process are thoroughly lacking in rational thought.
Entertainment doesn’t come much richer than elderly politicians fattened on our taxes and their own self-importance creakily collapsing to the floor of the House of Representatives. Oh, the awkwardness and obvious discomfort! And yet, viva la 1960s! Only tie-dye and love beads are missing as these Congressional cretins vie once again to repeal the Second Amendment without the bother of actually doing so.
Mike Hagan, the owner of Hagan's, who as the Washington Post reports is a combat veteran who served in Afghanistan, is offering a promotion unlike any other: "Buy a car, get an AR." The promotion is being done in conjunction with a local firearms store that completes the required background checks. Car buyers who pass the background checks and subsequently receive the AR-15 will then just send Hagan the bill afterward. "We're giving these weapons away for responsible people that can lawfully obtain them and we're confident that they're going to maintain them responsibly" Hagan said of the program. The campaign has increased sales, and thus far it is reported that Hagan has given away four AR-15s and one 9mm handgun, which is offered if customers decline the rifle.
In the wake of the Orlando shooting, the corporate TV news networks have gone into overdrive to hammer the same talking point on the desperate need for gun control legislation to be pushed, despite the fact that it is easily provable that such legislation would not have prevented the massacre.
Cohen’s rant is just one example of an astonishing amount of sheer nonsense that has filled the Internet since the terrorist attack in Orlando. Anti-gun politicians, and so-called opinion columnists and TV talking heads – who pretend to be “experts” on every topic under the sun, but who in reality know virtually nothing about even one topic – are confidently calling the AR-15 an “automatic” weapon, a “military” weapon,” and a “weapon of war,” and telling everyone that the most popular rifle in America should be banned.
With his recent comments, Manchin has displayed a gross disrespect for one of the most basic protections our constitution affords. Sadly, given the clamor in the U.S. Congress for renewed gun control measures, this disrespect appears to infect more than just a few of our elected representatives.
So Homeland Security, which has yet to find a potential terrorist despite stationing thousands of rapists and gropers and luggage thieves at airports, and which has lost almost 500,000 immigrants who have overstayed their visas, and which cannot will not control the borders, and which consistently turns loose unvetted illegal aliens that fall into its hands by shipping them to various states on buses, and which contracted with a “security agency” for which the accused Orlando shooter worked transporting said illegal aliens, and which ignored the shooter’s multiple trips to Saudi Arabia – the chief funder of terrorism – and ties to a radical mosque that has produced at least one suicide bomber, is going to be in charge of creating ways to minimize the opportunity for terrorists to get a gun in the country? Terrorists everywhere heard this news and rejoiced.
If the founding fathers had known this gun would have been invented, they wouldn’t have rewritten the Second Amendment—they would have fortified it in stone,” he says. “They knew the only way for us to stay free was by having whatever guns the bad guys have. This firearm gives average people the advantage they so desperately need and deserve to protect their life, liberty, and happiness.”
The validity of the vertical patterns was confirmed by the fact that similar motions were predicted by an earthquake model designed by researchers at the University of Hawaii's School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology.
The entire Los Angeles metropolitan area and most of Southern California can expect blackouts this summer. The power grid is under direct threat as a result of the unprecedented, but little reported, massive natural gas leaks at Alisco Canyon that was ongoing for four months as an intense summer heat wave sets in.
When the US government steps outside of the apple pie and baseball narrative of the American dream and issues warnings to prep, you’d better pay strict attention and start upping your preparedness game. (Whether you believe that the threat to prep for is manufactured to engineer consent or not is, while an interesting debate, entirely beside the point of this article.)
Having taught survival skills to thousands of individuals from all over the world for nearly two decades, I’ve come to one conclusion: the most important survival skill is innovation. Using what you have, to get what you need is what will ultimately make the difference between life and death in a sudden and unexpected survival scenario. I often call this “survival hacking.”
For once, it is actual good news for preppers, homesteaders and the self-reliant, but it is nothing to take for granted. Those who hold senior water rights and farmers who get the windfall of the water are largely against it, and it has restricted personal freedom until now.
President Obama has pushed the “prepper movement” into high gear, sending millions to buy guns, survival gear and food to live through a “civil war,” according to a nationally known survivalist who calls on Americans to prepare in a new book. Bryce M. Towsley, whose “Prepper Guns” details the best weapons and ammo to survive a political or natural disaster …
Sometimes a cautionary tale is more motivating than any amount of positive reinforcement every could be, and the horrifying reports from Venezuela are a perfect example. If you’re paying attention to the things they’ve run out of, you can put together a collapse supply list to see you through the crisis in the event of a breakdown in our own country. The time to prepare is now, well before the situation devolves to one that is similar.
As a nation we are facing what I am finding to be one of the least-hopeful presidential elections of my lifetime. We are facing the reality that we may see Hillary Clinton as the Democratic candidate for President of the United States. Yep… Hillary Clinton.
Many well-meaning parents keep their kids in the dark about preparedness to avoid scaring them with descriptions of potential disaster scenarios. The problem with being too overprotective is that it underestimates children’s capabilities and could put your entire family at risk in an emergency.
Most people look at preppers and think that they’re crazy for believing that civilization could be destroyed by many different threats, leading to the deaths of millions of people, but it’s a very real possibility. It’s worth preparing for.
It takes a Captive Wildlife Permit to legally possess an alligator in the State of Florida. So begs the question, if you have a CWP and CCW, can you legally carry an alligator concealed for defensive purposes? What would be the best way to carry a concealed alligator? I for one would want some sort of strap around its mouth, removed with a thumb break to prevent accidental discharge mastication.
