The FBI investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s failure to protect state secrets contained in her emails has entered its penultimate phase, and it is a dangerous one for her and her aides.
The rising proportion of ineligible veterans is largely due to the military’s increasing reliance on other-than-honorable discharges, which have been used as a quick way to dismiss troubled men and women who might otherwise qualify for time-consuming and expensive medical discharges.
Clinton has a long track record of public service but an equally long record of obfuscation, secrecy and working in the shadows to boost her power and further her ambition. We encourage voters to think long and hard about that record when choosing the next president.
Let’s not get too crazy here, but there are things that every person, who is carrying a firearm, should be doing in preparation for daily carry. It’s something that should never be taken lightly, and we should be doing all we can to be a proficient and safe as we possibly can.
On this very popular blog, Professor McAdams outed the incident and charged the teaching assistant with “using a tactic typical among liberals now. Opinions with which they disagree are not merely wrong, and are not to be argued against on their merits, but are deemed ‘offensive’ and need to be shut up.”
The American Council of Trustees and Alumni publishes occasional reports on what college students know. Nearly 10 percent of the college graduates surveyed thought Judith Sheindlin, TV’s “Judge Judy,” is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court. Less than 20 percent of the college graduates knew the effect of the Emancipation Proclamation. More than a quarter of the college graduates did not know Franklin D. Roosevelt was president during World War II; one-third did not know he was the president who spearheaded the New Deal. But it is a little mystery why so many college students are illiterate, innumerate and resistant to understanding. Let’s look at it.
For the past several weeks, the media has blamed Trump for “inciting violence” at his rallies despite the fact that most of the unrest was caused by professional agitators who aligned themselves with the socialist Senator from Vermont. Salads went out on the street to compare reactions to him holding a Trump sign and a Bernie sign.
Many of the things that are happening this very moment have direct parallels in literature of the past. Whether it is an account such as the “Gulag Archipelago” by Solzhenitsyn or a work of “fiction” such as “1984” by George Orwell is irrelevant. Elements of the history or the storyline (regarding the former and the latter works) are now becoming thoroughly inculcated into the fabric of modern reality.
Climate change is the biggest scam in the history of the world – a $1.5 trillion-a-year conspiracy against the taxpayer, every cent, penny and centime of which ends in the pockets of the wrong kind of people, none of which goes towards a cause remotely worth funding, all of it a complete and utter waste.
Is joining the military the right thing to do when the military doesn’t secure American borders, guard American shores, patrol American coasts, and enforce no-fly zones over American skies—although it does these things in other countries?
His anti-immigration stance fits perfectly with the events unfolding across Europe and his “knock the hell out of ISIS” line resonates with voters who, no matter how much they distrust the government, would rather focus on whether liberals plan to take their guns or the NSA is monitoring their phone than they would on whether the good folks at Langley might have created the terror groups that now threaten to infiltrate and attack Western targets.
To answer the question that is the title, we have to know of what the US consists. Is it an ethnic group, a collection of buildings and resources, a land mass with boundaries, or is it the Constitution. Clearly what differentiates the US from other countries is the US Constitution. The Constitution defines us as a people. Without the Constitution, we would be a different country. Therefore, to lose the Constitution is to lose the country.
By a combination of misjudgment, misplaced priorities and old-fashioned voter suppression, Tuesday’s primary was a disaster. As reported by The Arizona Republic’s Mary Jo Pitzl, Maricopa County reduced the number of polling places from more than the 200 available for the 2012 presidential election to … 60. Sixty? Are you kidding me. --The fact that a voter could go to any polling place didn’t matter much when the lines were so long that many people were forced to abandon the line.
The Federal Reserve’s years-long campaign to sheepishly back away from its own policy forecasts continued in earnest last week when it officially reduced the four expected 2016 quarter point hikes, suggested back in December, to just two. Given the deteriorating economic outlook, I believe there can be little doubt that the Fed will soon complete the capitulation process and remove all expectations for additional hikes this year. Even before that happens, savvy observers should have already concluded that the Federal Reserve is stuck in the monetary mud just as firmly now as it has been since the dawn of the financial crisis back in 2008.
Thanks largely to whistleblower Edward Snowden’s revelations in 2013, most Americans now realize that the intelligence community monitors and archives all sorts of online behaviors of both foreign nationals and US citizens. But did you know that the very fact that you know this could have subliminally stopped you from speaking out online on issues you care about?
By definition liberals, also known as the group which after establishment Republicans is most threatened by Donald Trump's meteoric rise, are supposed to be... well... liberal, as in avoid prejudice when interacting with fellow human beings. Unfortunately, that appears not to be the case with a landlord in Grand Junction, Colorado, who is refusing to rent to anyone who supports Trump.
While border numbers do show a drop in the number of illegal immigrants captured along the nation’s southern border in recent years, part of that decline is due to the current administration’s directives against enforcing immigration laws.
Britain’s state-owned network BBC has a track record of downplaying the risks of fallout from nuclear disasters. So the 5th anniversary of Fukushima provided the BBC with another opportunity to persuade us that if our communities should one day become contaminated with fallout from a major nuclear disaster, even at levels currently requiring evacuation, we should have no concern whatsoever.
Researchers found that the percentage of Americans who claim they never pray reached an all-time high in 2014, up five-fold since the 1980s. Over the same time period, belief in God and interest in spirituality appears to have similarly declined, especially among young adults.
Punishing the law-abiding citizen for the potential actions of the bad guy isn’t fair, nor is it convenient. Ah well, we can always just bypass the post office all together. It’s not like they need our money, right? I’m sure they’re doing just fine.
Bangladesh has learned a valuable lesson over the past two months: Do. Not. Trust. The. New. York. Fed. -- Now if only physical cash were banned, then the “culprits” wouldn’t be able to launder their illicit proceeds. Hey, wait a minute…
A Washington Post editorial claims that stopping Trump is the only way to “defend our democracy.” In other words, those troublesome voters are the problem. A New York Times columnist raised the prospect of assassination. Sure, it was a joke. Make that joke about Obama or Clinton and see who laughs. I would be delighted to support a more conventional candidate who has Trump’s courage and appeal, but we don’t always get to pick our revolutionaries. And make no mistake, Donald Trump is leading a political revolution that is long overdue.
Government debt in 20 industrialized countries stands at $44 trillion. -- But it’s actually a lot more than that, according to a new report. After factoring in public pension and other retirement liabilities, the debt levels nearly triple to a staggering $122 trillion.
One of the myths that non-hunters seem to have is the overall ease hunters have when it comes to locating game and shooting it. Unless you're going for a game damage hunt, finding the critters can be problematic.
Some of the country’s best-known corporations are nervously grappling with what role they should play at the Republican National Convention, given the likely nomination of Donald J. Trump, whose "divisive candidacy has alienated many women, African-Americans and Hispanics."
Sluggish global growth threatens to keep governments around the world from being able to pay pensions and bondholders, the chief economist of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said Wednesday.
People are angry because the economy really is rigged, and it’s been rigged for quite some time. However, what has really pushed people over the edge is the realization that the economic riggers destroyed the economy via fraud and then got away with it. This has resulted in the institutionalization of crime and fraud as the leading driver of U.S. GDP growth since the riggers know they are above the law. This is why people are mad, and they should be a lot angrier than they are.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and some of her closest aides have to decide whether to tell the truth or lie to the FBI about her use of a private email and home-brew server to do official business.
The wars will continue as long as people believe in salvation through violence. The wars will continue as long as the people cheer on the warriors. The wars will continue as long as we absolve the warriors and blame the politicians. The wars will continue as long as mothers and fathers take pride in the “service” of their sons and daughters. The wars will continue as long as the warfare state is able to fund itself.
Even if Sanders were to win the April 19 New York presidential contest, when a whopping 247 delegates are at stake, every single New York superdelegate reached by the Daily News said they would never back the Vermont senator.
“There are 124.5 million Americans in their prime working years (ages 25–54). Nearly one-quarter of this group—28.9 million people, or 23.2 percent of the total—is not currently employed. They either became so discouraged that they left the labor force entirely, or they are in the labor force but unemployed. This group of non-employed individuals is more than 3.5 million larger than before the recession began in 2007,” writes the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.
Civil asset forfeiture is, simply put, the government stealing your property – including but not limited to cash, jewelry, cars, and even homes – without charging or convicting you with a crime. -- Enough with the Orwellian doublespeak – let’s just call “civil asset forfeiture” and “equitable sharing” what they are: armed robbery by government thugs.
The key to surviving any crisis is to have the right people in place and to be well away from the wrong people. The question is, who are the right people, how do we identify them, and, how do we examine ourselves and determine if we are ready or unready? Here are 8 traits and skills that are essential to have during a crisis.
Love them or hate them, large crowds cannot always be avoided and they have inherent dangers ranging from pickpockets to riots. It’s good to be prepared for those dangers and keep in mind crowd safety. You just need to use your head in order to stay ahead of the game, so to speak.
Staying ready and able, even at home, means keeping your handgun accessible. In one of these situations, there really is no middle ground. The assailant shot the lock off the door of the apartment. It is pretty obvious he intended his actions. As for the woman, she unfortunately had to see the other occupant get murdered and eventually critically injure some man she knew previously. -- That’s a heck of an alarm clock to start the day.
"If people rise up and say this social justice thing, this language policing, this political correctness, safe spaces, trigger warnings, microaggressions – this stuff is horsesh*t…. If enough people smash its stranglehold on the public square, it will never recover...”
There’s a reason most parliamentary and presidential democracies have more than two political parties, and both Trump and Sanders are examples of why. Both nominee-hopefuls have increasingly come to represent polar opposites of the singular problem that the American two-party political system is suffering from Stagnation.
Conservative legal watchdogs have discovered new emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server dating back to the first days of her tenure as secretary of State. The previously undisclosed February 2009 emails between Clinton from her then-chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, raise new questions about the scope of emails from Clinton’s early days in office that were not handed over to the State Department for recordkeeping and may have been lost entirely.
Health insurance premiums have increased faster than wages and inflation in recent years, rising an average of 28 percent from 2009 to 2014 despite the enactment of Obamacare, according to a report from Freedom Partners.
Bangladesh is not pleased with the NY Fed. One Friday in early February, hackers who had apparently been stalking the Bangladesh central bank for at least two weeks bombarded the Fed with requests for transfers of nearly $1 billion from the country’s FX reserves. The good news: the vast majority of that total was not transferred. The bad news: $100 million of it was and of that $100 million, more than $80 million is still missing.
In a hasty move this week, the Supreme Court gutted liberal arguments that the 2nd Amendment was only intended to protect the American right to bear primitive firearms like the muskets in common use at the time of its writing.
Is Donald Trump really the voice of reason the day after the attacks in Brussels? These left-leaning women from The View are besides themselves in having to admit that they agree with The Donald on his foreign policy and ISIS views.
Trump, who has called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the country, also reiterated the need for tougher measures to stop the flow of illegal immigrants, particularly Syrian refugees, across the border.
As we watch President Obama being warmly welcomed in Cuba, we think back to the secret, shameful things done in the past by the US to undermine Castro, not counting the various assassination attempts. This report lays bare one of the more hair-raising schemes.
Of course, Barack Obama has been president for the last seven years. And Bill Clinton's wife, Hillary Clinton, served in the Obama administration. Bill Clinton is either losing it, or he’s ramping up his attacks on President Obama. Neither is good news for Hillary Clinton.
The George Soros funded liberal attack group Color of Change has sent over 20,000 emails to CNN calling for the network to terminate Jeff Lord and Andy Dean for positive comments the analysts have made about presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
If you need to restock on ammunition or other firearm supplies, there’s no better time to buy than right now. That’s according to a firearm industry insider who says political uncertainty driven by the election year could cause ammunition and firearm shortages.
When it comes to preparing for an unfortunate event like a natural disaster, loss of a job, economic collapse, or even a terrorist attack, there are many things that make a whole lot of sense to purchase used. This is especially true when considering that some of these items may only sit on a shelf to only be used in the event that the SHTF.
Does the stupidity of establishment Republicans know no end? It appears not. “They still don’t get it” has become something of a cliché in this election cycle. But it’s true — they don’t. In their frantic efforts to stop the Trumpster, Republican power players continue to do one thing after another that only strengthens his support.
And we couldn’t agree more. Back in the old days, firearm classes for kids used to be on the normal agenda. Sadly, it’s been stripped away over the decades and is no longer a routine class for many kids across the country. If it starts to come back and spread around, you can bet we’ll be seeing the beginning of a better country.
This concealed carrier managed to successfully defend herself and her property without firing a shot. That’s the best we can ever hope for. And it’s a reminder to always keep your situational awareness with active scanning whenever exiting out into a shopping plaza.
A top Homeland Security official told Border Patrol agents the Obama administration has “no intention of deporting” many of the illegal immigrants caught trying to sneak into the country, ordering instead that they be released so they don’t clog up the courts, a leading advocate for agents testified to Congress.
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.
