According to analysis out from the fiscally conservative Citizens for Government Reform, lawmakers could balance the federal budget in as little as one year simply by eliminating corporate welfare, cronyism and waste.
It may not seem like it, but all of the following recent events deserve your attention regarding your online presence and privacy – which hackers, government, and corporate America all want to control and violate. Have you ever noticed that these government wars — the war on drugs, the war on poverty — tend to do more harm than good? Well, the war on terror is the newest and shiniest war we have going. And it could very well cost us our 2nd and 4th Amendment rights.
A mayor in Florida is urging his citizens to arm up and take personal responsibility for their own safety. It’s not an exit strategy from developing a more robust law enforcement strategy to combat highly-publicized shootings like the Orlando Pulse nightclub incident, but it is an honest push to get people to consider self-defense on a new level.
Clinton’s plans to control the world extend far beyond environmental regulation. She has an ideological “human rights” agenda that she demands other nations accept. To the objection that importuning and threatening other nations arouses resentment and thus threatens American security, she has an answer that should by now be familiar: “Throughout the history of American foreign policy, there has been a running debate between so-called realists and idealists. The former, it is argued, place national security ahead of human rights, while the latter do the opposite, These are categories I find overly simplistic. Over the long term, repression undermines stability and creates new threats, while democracy and respect for human rights create strong and stable societies.”
A third grader had made a comment about the brownies being served to the class. After another student exclaimed that the remark was "racist," the school called the Collingswood Police Department, according to the mother of the boy who made the comment.
Without identifying him by name, Mr. Obama dismissed Trump as someone "who has never shown any regard for workers, who has never fought on behalf of any social justice issues" and who has worked against providing economic opportunities.
And the rest of the left, both at home and abroad? They still hate you, yet still believe that smirking through their cultish sense of their own superiority will somehow sway you to their way of thinking; unaware that that’s precisely the same smug and dismissive attitude which precipitated the growing worldwide rejection of globalism in the first place.
The conclusion of the two-year GOP report on Benghazi illustrates how politically motivated delays got Americans killed. Newly released State Department emails have poked holes in the private server explanation. And a former Secret Service agent says she’s a liar with anger issues. It’s not Clinton’s week.
Call it conspiracy theory, coincidence or just bad luck, but any time someone is in a position to bring down Hillary Clinton by testifying they wind up dead. In fact, there’s a long history of Clinton-related body counts, with scores of people dying under mysterious circumstances.
The US would do well to exit the various phony “free trade” agreements that provide advantage to the well-connected elites while harming the rest of us. The act of exit is liberating. We should make a longer list of those things we would like to get out of. I am only getting started.
If you look all the new gun ban laws, the anti-gun Democrats are proposing and applied them universally back, say ten years ago. Not ONE mass shooting would have been prevented. Not ONE. Not one life would have been saved. Not ONE of these new laws would have stopped the shooting in Orlando.
His comment drew hoots from climate skeptics, including the website Greenie Watch, which posted his comment under the headline, “‘Scientist’ Michael Mann says there is no need for statistics: You can just SEE global warming.”
Is the occupation of America imminent? While few could say what is coming, there have been some curious sightings that hold ominous tones, as military vehicles and equipment for foreign forces have been sighted on U.S. highways.
When it comes to the Wall Street banksters like Hank Paulson, the “revolving door” between business and government is literally paved with gold. His endorsement of “pay-to-play” corporate welfare queen Hillary Clinton is as perfect a political match as one can imagine.
British voters may not know what they will get with an independent Britain, but they knew that something was rotten, not just in Denmark, but all over the European Union. The same holds true in the United States. Until our leaders can paint more realistic pictures of where we are and where we are going, we should expect more “surprises” like the one we got yesterday.
Once you hear those same processionals, financial advisers, your neighbors, your friends and the local shoeshine boy talking about gold investments at cocktail parties, you’ll know it’s time to sell. For now, they still have no idea what’s coming, making this an optimal time to consider the one asset that has survived the test of time throughout history and the many varieties of crises that have been wrought upon humankind.
It’s time to lift the new iron curtain that is descending across Europe. Russia and the United States have many interests in common: a new cold war, which could easily escalate into a hot war, is in no one’s interests.
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.”
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?
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.
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.
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.
The study on Monday shed light on one of the major concerns about America’s recovery: while unemployment has been falling, a large number of people have also been dropping out of the jobs market altogether.
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.
A private government contractor is seeking role players for a simulated military drill set to take place next month in Burlington, Vermont – the site of candidate Bernie Sanders’ campaign headquarters – at the same time as the Democratic National Convention.
With Speaker Ryan decrying the preposterousness of redacting the Orlando shooter's 911 call transcript, The FBI has been forced to explain itself (and its Obama administration-driven political-correctness). Simply put, "you (America) can't handle the truth," as the bureau argued that letting the public hear or even read the gunman’s justification for the attack in his own words risked encouraging further attacks... thanks to the FBI and the administration, [omitted] has suddenly become Twitter’s unwitting joke of the day.
The perfect organism is achieved when one can impute to you his philosophical thoughts and you adopt them as your own, believing that they are your own thoughts and that they originated in your own mind. This is not only the perfect organism, it is the perfect crime and it is the foundation of sagacious statecraft stagecraft under our present system of government.
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.
Six diseases that were recently near eradication are making a comeback in the United States, as the taxpayer funded refugee resettlement industry launches a propaganda blitz about the so-called World Refugee Day this Monday.
That may not be the appraisal a republic would prefer regarding any aspect of a campaign for the highest office in the land, but Shields speaks for many who are already breathless about the presidential debates. They’ll likely pit Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, against Hillary Clinton, who has sewn up the Democratic delegate count. He has called her a “fraud” with “zero natural talent” who should be in prison. She has said he is “temperamentally unfit” with “dangerously incoherent” ideas and “not someone who should ever have the nuclear codes.” That was all in about 24 hours. They haven’t even stepped onto the same stage yet.
The smarter neocons are already lining up to endorse Clinton, especially given Donald Trump’s hostile takeover of the Republican Party and his disdain for neocon strategies that he views as simply spreading chaos around the globe. As The New York Times has reported, Clinton is “the vessel into which many interventionists are pouring their hopes.”
Luckily, ruling over people is a lot harder than it used to be. Herding cats is much easier. For every national security letter or military or domestic mishap that people are sworn to secrecy over, there are ten thousand facts floating freely, and a million or ten or twenty million who just don’t care about what the government says. That’s how all dictatorships and empires end. It is how ours will end too, ideally sooner rather than later.
This year I supersized one of our favorite dice games and took it outside. I made a giant set of dice for just a few dollars, and instead of sitting around the table, we’re taking our game of Yahtzee out into the backyard. This giant DIY Yard Yahtzee set is quickly becoming our favorite backyard game yet! Check out the step-by-step tutorial to make your own below.
Following the tragic shooting in Orlando earlier this month, the South Carolina incident provides a prime example of how future mass shooting incidents could be stopped by putting an end to gun free zones.
Yesterday’s mystery meeting on the tarmac between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch has now been clarified. Obviously, it wasn’t a social visit as Lynch publicly claimed, but an arrangement clarifying how the powerful Clinton dynasty would be kept above the law in the face of heated publicly scrutiny as Hillary Clinton seeks the presidency.
On top of everything else, strange reports of military vehicles with UN markings have been coming in from all over the nation. So what in the world is the government up to? Why are they working so feverishly hard to get prepared?
If there is to be real change, people like this must be punished to the full extent of the law. Taking the trouble to prosecute lawbreakers and mete out meaningful punishment is an important deterrent to criminal activity. If there are no consequences to criminal behavior, what motivation do criminals have to change their ways?
The truth is that the House Select Committee on Benghazi concealed more truth than it revealed. Yet the government is supposed to work for us. Aren’t we entitled to know what the government has done in our names?
When Deputy FBI Assistant Director James Burrell told a workshop roundtable about the Operational Technology Division’s (OTD) budget, he didn’t give precise figures. Instead, he said the Bureau has “hundreds of millions of dollars” to spend on law enforcement and national security.
While the First Amendment—which gives us a voice—is being muzzled, the Fourth Amendment—which protects us from being bullied, badgered, beaten, broken and spied on by government agents—is being disemboweled.
Now, I fully understand the excitement surrounding this event. For many people it was a complete surprise because they assumed that international financiers and the ever-pervasive global elites would do anything to stop it from happening. It feels like a kind of revolution; a pointy stick in the eye of the beast. While I applaud the people of the U.K. for their ongoing battle for sovereignty, I can assure you that the Brexit is not an obstacle to the plans of globalists.
Wait a minute. They’re already dead. Brexit just reveals that not everybody’s brains have been eaten. A viral contagion now threatens the zombified institutions of daily life, especially the workings of politics and finance. Just as zombies exist only in the collective imagination, so do these two principal activities of society operate mainly on trust, an ephemeral product of the hive-mind.
In the United States, it seems like food is just about everywhere you look. So, outside prepper circles, the idea of a shortage drastic enough to create massive civil upheaval seems unimaginable to most people. But government emergency contractors are currently planning for the reality of a global food shortage and extreme price increases in the near future.
It appears, just as we warned, that Brexit was indeed the first of many dominoes. Even before the Brexit result, a poll by Ipsos Mori showed that the majority of people in France and Italy want to at least have a referendum on leaving...
Gun sales are on a pace to break last year's record of more than 23 million, a boon to the U.S. industry and gun stores thanks to election-year worries about gun control and recent terror attacks, according to government figures and experts.
One shudders to watch Hillary Clinton aspire to be a commander-in-chief... It’s also inevitable that land, sea and air provocations against Russia will eventually result in accidental clashes and a stern Russian response. All one needs is a Sarajevo II terror incident to spark a big shooting war between nuclear powers.
Just when I thought 2016 couldn’t get any weirder, what with a bombastic reality television star facing a grossly corrupt sociopath for the heavyweight championship of America, our Democrat pals to find a way to make it infinitely so. This week, the party of President Barack Obama took it upon themselves to grind the wheels of government to a dead stop. Their proudly stated goal: the end of civil liberties guaranteed by the Constitution to the American people.
Britain is leaving the European Union. But that reality doesn’t begin to tell the story of the larger historical forces at work that are reshaping global politics, the global economy, and global culture and have been for much of the last decade.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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 former CBS News investigative reporter who left her job after both the White House and her own employers stonewalled her coverage of the truth behind the Benghazi terror attack said recently that all Americans should be concerned about the amount of control elites have over the world media.
A group calling itself New World Hackers has been taking over billboards along Interstate 30 in Dallas. Like myself, the group seems to dislike both the Democratic and Republican candidates for President, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
The arguments of course are mostly self-serving. The financial services industry loathes Warren, who more than anyone in the last 80 years has channeled the rage against Wall Street that began with the Great Depression and continues to course through the nation following the 2008 financial crisis. Warren wants to break up the nation's largest banks. She created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The mere mention of her name draws groans from bankers.
According to the GAO Report, FBI’s Facial Analysis, Comparison, and Evaluation (FACE) Services unit not only has access to FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) face recognition database of nearly 30 million civil and criminal mug shot photos, it also has access to the State Department’s Visa and Passport databases, the Defense Department’s biometric database, and the drivers license databases of at least 16 states. Totaling 411.9 million images, this is an unprecedented number of photographs, most of which are of Americans and foreigners who have committed no crimes.
Mass surveillance, gun control, and other restrictions on our liberty will not prevent future Orlandos. In fact, by preventing law-abiding Americans from defending themselves, gun control laws make us less safe from criminals. Similarly, mass surveillance and warrantless wiretapping erode our rights while making it more difficult for law enforcement to identify real threats. If Congress really cared about our security and liberty, it would repeal all federal gun laws, end all unconstitutional surveillance, and end the hyper-interventionist foreign policy that causes many around the world to resent the U.S.
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.
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.
Voters who have relied on the network evening newscasts for information about the 2016 presidential candidates saw four times more airtime devoted to controversies involving presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump than to the scandals surrounding his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton
Bill and Hillary Clinton profess to have always been supporters of racial equality, but anecdotes published in a new book by his ex-lover claim otherwise. Hillary was heard calling mentally challenged children 'f*****g ree-tards' and caught on record blurting out the terms 'stupid k**e and 'f***ing Jew b*****d', while Bill called the Reverend Jesse Jackson a 'G**damned n****r'.
According to the UN, the global body has more than 12,500 UN “police” officers deployed in 18 different UN “peace” missions around the world. Many of those UN “peace missions” have been noteworthy primarily for the horrifying abuses of women and children by UN forces, as documented extensively in this magazine and even in official UN reports. From raping eight-year old children in Haiti and the Central African Republic in recent years, to persecuting whistleblowers who try to protect the children, to backing Muslim militias that butchered Christians in the Ivory Coast, to trafficking child sex slaves out of Bosnia in the 1990s, to indiscriminately slaughtering civilians and medical workers in Katanga in the 1960s, among countless other atrocities, the UN’s “peace” forces have rightfully developed an unparalleled reputation for savagery and barbarism with impunity.
