While investors insist the markets are currently NOT in a bubble, it would be wise to remember the same belief was held in 1999 and 2007. Throughout history, financial bubbles have only been recognized in hindsight when their existence becomes “apparently obvious” to everyone. Of course, by that point is was far too late to be of any use to investors and the subsequent destruction of invested capital. This time will not be different. Only the catalyst, magnitude, and duration will be.
The powers that be are intent on having a war, regardless of the consequences and effects on noncombatants. A war would also be a way to prop up the administration’s flagging ratings. Domestically we have not emerged from the “soft” police state and liberal “legislative” powers of the Courts to remake Constitutional law and circumvent Congress and the President through selective interpretation of anything and everything: These things are the true “legacy” of Obama.
Once again Republicans have managed to box themselves in. Just as the GOP has reportedly found enough votes among conservative Republicans to pass the latest iteration of the proposed Healthcare bill, with Freedom Caucus Mark Meadows saying "republicans will have the votes to pass" Obamacare repeal, Democrats realized that they once again have the leverage to bring this whole process to a grinding halt halt. And they are using it.
On Monday night, President Donald Trump had dinner with war weasels Senator Lindsey Graham and John McCain to talk about North Korea. McCain and Graham came away from the affair enthused, meaning the rest of us should be wary of things to come. Both McCain and Graham championed Trump’s decision to bomb a Syrian airbase earlier this month despite the president’s previous insistence that he had no intention of further involving the U.S. in that country’s ongoing civil war. The hawkish duo continues to urge Trump to intensify U.S. action against the Assad regime—and, no doubt, it’ll happen.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says the federal government’s renewed interest in bringing charges against him for publishing leaked material is the latest development in a growing war on free speech in the U.S.
We’ve got serious problems in this country, and they won’t be solved on the golf course, by wining and dining corporate CEOs, giving local police forces more military equipment, locking down the nation, or pretending that the only threats to our freedoms are posed by forces beyond our borders or by “anti-government” extremists hiding among us.
That is what happens when the government cannot meet its financial obligations. Two forms of default/bankruptcy are available: hard and soft. Hard means the government “stiffs” debt holders totally or partially—“sorry, we cannot repay any of your principal or interest” on your bonds and T-bills or “we can make only part payment.” The “soft” default method is for the Federal Reserve to run its printing and digital presses red hot, paying off debt with zillions in money with new zeroes, ultimately making the money worthless. Economic chaos and disaster ensue. Irresponsible? Hyperinflation? Yes. Would the Fed do it? Don’t ask me, ask the bailed-out masters of the universe on Wall Street what they want the Fed to do.
North Korea is a different animal altogether. Given that they are reportedly nuclear capable, there is a real possibility that they could launch a devastating attack on South Korea, Japan or even the West Coast of the United States, leading to hundreds of thousands of casualties and widespread geo-political and economic chaos.
I have my doubts that any of these individuals—all of whom swore to uphold and defend the Constitution—have ever read any of the nation’s founding documents. Had they actually read and understood the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights, there would be no militarized police, no mass surveillance, no police shootings of unarmed individuals, no SWAT team raids, no tasering of children, no asset forfeiture schemes or any of the other government-sanctioned abuses that get passed off as law and order these days.
Glazyev wagers that the U.S. is currently conducting “a hybrid war with the entire world to shift their debt burden on to other countries, to confine everyone to the dollar and weaken territories they cannot control.” -- He added: “In this context, the anti-Russian hysteria and growing Russophobia can be seen as a long-term factor linked with the specific interests of the United States’ ruling elite.”
On April 26, we’ll go one step further and stage a very realistic emergency event involving multiple sites and actors posing as the casualties. However, there is no reason for residents to be alarmed because the exercise will occur in a controlled environment.”
"We're no longer fact-based. The founding fathers created a country based on fact. We don't have a fact base. If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy." -- We won't even bother to highlight all of the instances in which the New York Times decided to push 'fake news' regarding the Trump administration's alleged ties to Russian hackers...
US analysts have in the past estimated a US invasion of North Korea would cost some 250,000 American casualties and at least $10 billion, though I believe such a war would cost four times that much today [emphases added].
After nearly a decade of being able to borrow money for next to nothing, interest rates are finally beginning to creep higher. Even the relatively small increases seen so far have caused problems in the previously booming automobile industry. The size of the auto loan market has ballooned to a historic 1.1 trillion dollars, and subprime lending has once again become the norm. Teaser offers that allow people to get cars with zero money down and 84-month financing have fueled a wave of irresponsible spending. Americans’ tendency to associate success with having nice things has driven many people who can’t afford to buy a house to get the next best thing — a brand new car.
If the chemical attack was a false flag, it sure seems to have worked. As tensions between the US and Russia continue to escalate, the US is barreling full speed toward a major, unprecedented crisis. If you don’t act now, there’s a good chance this crisis could wipe you out.
If you have had a sinking feeling for the past number of decades about why it has felt like the U.S. economy wasn’t really moving in the right direction even before the financial crises in 2008, this will fill in that feeling with facts. Very disturbing but inescapable facts.
International pharmaceutical cartels and monopolies are not just marketing chemicals as medicine. They are deeply involved or, better stated, they are in business with government. They plan and carry out wars, human experiments, and population control. Their interests and the interests of big government are identical. It’s not just all about money. It’s about power and the New World Order. The controlled press wouldn’t dare touch this subject.
America’s participation in the Great War cost over 115,000 lives, guaranteed an unjust treaty, and helped turn the U.S. into what Walter McDougall characterized as a “crusader state,” waging what Richard Gamble has deplored as “wars for righteousness.”
I fancy a phalanx of hoplites with Warner, Cardin, Schiff, Wolfowitz, Cheney and Libby arrayed on the front line in their fine armor manufactured by Halliburton. That way they could have all the war they want and experience it first-hand. I doubt they would last very long as they are both moral and physical cowards, but given that reality, they just might think a bit harder about promoting the type of fearmongering that will only end by sending the children of other Americans off to war.
The same thing happened just before the great financial crisis of 2008. All of the warning signs were there well in advance, and many of the experts were warning about what was coming as early as 2005. But because it did not happen immediately, a lot of people greatly mocked the warnings.
The glaring irony with all this is that it is liberals who are hateful and intolerant, authoritarian and lawless. They are the ones who represent a threat to our liberties — not Trump, Republicans or conservatives.
For too long now, the American people have been persuaded to barter their freedoms for phantom promises of security and, in the process, have rationalized turning a blind eye to all manner of government wrongdoing—asset forfeiture schemes, corruption, surveillance, endless wars, SWAT team raids, militarized police, profit-driven private prisons, and so on—because they were the so-called lesser of two evils. -- No matter how you rationalize it, the lesser of two evils is still evil.
Rice certainly wasn’t politically naive about the political uses of intelligence information. She was, after all, the Obama official who famously made the rounds spouting the false “Our intel says it was about the video” line on the Benghazi attack back during the 2012 campaign.
The new process is an attempt to discredit Trump or to weaken his power, or to get him to resign, or to impeach him, or to thwart his program. This is a slow-motion coup d’état without military force. The model for this coup is Watergate, which used existing law, institutions, and pressures to achieve its result of getting Nixon to resign. The most important instigators of the anti-Trump coup are within the government, within intelligence agencies, but with important support arising in Congress. The launching of the coup had important help from Obama.
Many universities are already advising students and staff not to use ‘gender-offensive’ terms such as ‘he’ or ‘she’ to describe people that could be either male or female. And terms such as ‘mankind’, ‘manpower’ and ‘man-made’ are frowned upon by academics if used in essays. But now the school of social science at the University of Hull has gone one step further by threatening to deduct marks from students for using such phrases.
Whether Trump is a willing participant or an unwitting scapegoat doesn’t much matter. It’s simply important to remember that before he became president, Trump was known as one of the world’s greatest salesmen. If you think about it, it was a whole bunch of other really convincing salesmen who got us into this mess. So it stands to reason that only those of us who learn to read between the lines of a tremendous pitch are going to make it out with our skin.
If you’re one of the countless Americans who was distraught to learn of the revelations made by former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden, the mere idea that there might be yet another agency out there - perhaps just as powerful and much more intrusive - should give you goosebumps.
The scientific solution is to change the “carbon = pollutant” hypothesis since observation doesn’t support it, but “climate science” isn’t science. It’s religion. Which is why the economy’s only hope rests on a carbon atheist in the Oval Office.
The US owes the world 453,000 tons of gold which is almost 3 times all the gold ever produced in history. The average American is totally unaware what is happening to his money since he doesn’t travel outside the country. He doesn’t realize how prices are going up every year, especially since the official inflation figures have nothing to do with real inflation.
What in the world has happened to the United States? We are rapidly getting to the point where political correctness is in danger of becoming our national religion. Of course most people would not even call it a “religion”, but for most Americans this unwritten set of rules shapes everything that they think, do and say. Many had been hoping that the spell of political correctness would be broken by the election of Donald Trump, but that obviously has not happened. The forces of political correctness still have a stranglehold on our education system, on all forms of entertainment, on our legal system, and on most of the politicians in both political parties.
Yet under the Constitution, healthcare is not a right; it is a good — like an education or a gym membership. You work hard, you decide what goods to purchase. If the government gives you the good, that does not magically transform it into a right. Bravo to the courageous House Republicans who recognize this.
If you are around someone long enough, eventually they are going to do or say something to offend you. None of us is going to agree 100 percent on everything, and it is a horrible shame to allow one disagreement to ruin what should be a great relationship.
In addition to the absolutely quantifiable reasons why the American Empire will collapse, there are demographic, cultural, and societal trends which will contribute dramatically to the fall. The rapidly aging populace, with 10,000 Americans per day turning 65 years old, is the driving force towards national bankruptcy, as this inexorable demographic tsunami sweeps over the fraying fabric of welfare state promises. The onslaught of illegal immigrants and purposeful execution of a plan by the effete liberal elite to weaken our common American culture through the insertion of Muslim refugees into our communities is undermining the shared values which built the country. The immigrants who built this country assimilated, learned the language, worked hard and adopted our common culture. The hordes invading America at this time hate our values and refuse to assimilate. This Soros-funded effort to create diversity havoc throughout the world is part of the globalization one world order plan.
“The desire to force upon the people a creed which is regarded as salutary for them is, of course, not a thing that is new or peculiar to our time. New, however, is the argument by which many of our intellectuals try to justify such attempts.” -- The tragedy of collectivist thought is that, while it starts out to make reason supreme, it ends by destroying reason….” -- And as a reminder, this was written in 1944!
This news presents Trump with an unwelcome but unavoidable choice: confront those who have kept him in the dark about such rogue activities or live fearfully in their shadow. (The latter was the path chosen by President Obama. Will Trump choose the road less traveled?)
As deep state operatives continue to peddle the fictitious Trump-Russia narrative to members of the press and House Intelligence Committee investigators, the American people are having the proverbial wool pulled over their eyes by the actual offenders themselves, Hillary Clinton and John Podesta, both of whom have done business with the Russian State.
Commentators seem to split into three camps: those who see Trump as a manifestation of smoldering social/economic ills, those who see Trump and his supporters as the cause of those ills, and those who see Trump as both manifestation and cause of those ills. I think this misses the point, which is the overlapping crises unfolding in this decade– diminishing returns on skyrocketing debts, the demographics of an aging populace, the erosion of the social contract and the profound disunity of political elites–will continue expanding and feeding on each other regardless of who is in power.
During a recent exchange on “CBS Sunday Morning,” ancient newsreader Ted Koppel called Fox News pundit Sean Hannity “bad for America.” But some people truly are “Bad for America.” To benefit the Ted Koppels of the world, here’s a list of some of the more noteworthy offenders.
Former Labor Secretary Tom Perez, who took over as the chair of the Democratic National Committee in late February following Hillary's stunning November defeat, has asked for his entire staff to submit their resignation letters by no later than April 15th.
Gorsuch missed an opportunity to provide his interrogator, to use Obama’s pet phrase, with “a teaching moment.” He should have pointed out that judging by present eccentric standards of political correctness, everyone in the past was a bigot. Aristotle, Immanuel Kant, FDR, Harry Truman, Karl Abraham Lincoln, and JFK. Which one of these now honored figures believed in gay rights, interchangeable gender roles or the right of a young man who says that he/she’s a woman to have access to girls’ showers in a public school. Which one of these figures would have defended the inalienable constitutional right of an illegal immigrant and felon not to be deported, the way Feinstein’s constituents do?
Loyola University Chicago offers a campus club “for self-identified White students” to admit their own racist feelings and to complain about the racism they perceive around themselves. The segregated “affinity group,” called Ramblers Analyzing Whiteness, allows all students “who self-identify as White” to talk about their “anger and confusion about institutional racism” and to confess “guilt and hope about internalized racism.” Members can also “examine what it means to be White” and “begin the journey of operating in solidarity with others and their privilege.”
As with many another complex, opaque systems in the U.S., only those toiling in the murky depths of the healthcare system know just how broken the entire system is. Only those dealing daily with the perverse incentives, the Kafkaesque procedures, the endlessly negative unintended consequences, the soul-deadening paper-shuffling, the myriad forms of fraud, the recalcitrant patients who don’t follow recommendations but demand to be magically returned to health anyway, and of course the hopelessness of the financial future of a system with runaway costs, a rapidly aging populace and profiteering cartels focused on maintaining their rackets regardless of the cost to the nation or the health of its people.
For those who voted Trump into office, his complete indifference — as demonstrated by him playing golf all day while the neocons completely infiltrate his administration to make important decisions on his behalf — is nothing more than a giant slap in the face.
I'm not a huge fan of Ann Coulter, but for all the Left’s breathless claims that President Donald J. Trump is a tyrant hell-bent on ruling with an iron fist -- it is THEY who continually behave as authoritarians, violently opposing and shutting down any political point of view they don’t agree with. Free speech is dead in California. Brown and his Brown Shirt thugs killed it.
President Donald Trump has fought to ensure his own freedom from intrusion, acutely aware of what information could prove politically damaging, such as the release of his income tax returns. But under the rubric of rolling back regulations or enforcing immigration laws, Trump has taken actions that critics say will erode privacy for U.S. citizens, along the country’s borders and in the privacy of their homes.
How could Comey justify the public revelation of a criminal investigation and a summary of evidence of guilt about one candidate for president and remain silent about the existence of a criminal investigation of the campaign of another? How could he deny knowledge of surveillance that was well-known in the intelligence community, even among his own agents? Why would the FBI director inject his agents, who have prided themselves on professional political neutrality, into a bitterly contested campaign having been warned it might affect the outcome? Why did he reject the law’s just commands of silence in favor of putting his thumb on political scales? I don’t know the answers to those questions. But the American public, and Hillary Clinton, is entitled to them.
We do not always support our government in time of war, and in the most recent wars not for very many years. We do not obey its laws by habit but by force, and a great many of the most highly placed people both in government and business, including even our Presidents and our representatives and the executives of the largest firms, are regularly and increasingly seen to be disobeying these laws. It is the loss of citizenship, a malaise that is poisoning our society. I do not think that any nation has long survived under such conditions.
A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment.
Julian Assange, along with the whistleblowers who reveal to us the evil that is being done in our name, are heroes. They deserve our respect and admiration, not a prison cell. If we allow this president to declare war on those who tell the truth, we have only ourselves to blame.
President Donald Trump has gone to great lengths to break from the policies and approaches of his predecessor. Yet, when it came to justifying a round of U.S. military missile strikes in Syria, the new commander in chief dusted off a legal rationale crafted by Barack Obama’s administration.
The “fake news” pejorative has become commonplace in modern public discourse, so much so that social media outlets have taken it upon themselves to “police” so-called “fake news” stories and warn people about their dangers. This was largely due to the supposed impact “fake news” had on Trump supporters in 2016. To these self-appointed gatekeepers of truth, honesty, and the American way, nothing that contradicts their version of American history can be acceptable.
After the results of last year’s election came in, the hacks in the mainstream media struggled to find an explanation for how Trump could have been elected. They simply couldn’t fathom that voters would choose someone other than the establishment pick. In their angst, they threw up their hands and declared that the people had been bamboozled by “fake news,” a vague and poorly defined term that just so happened to include every news source that disagreed with them.
Translation: Trump's massive tax cut will be funded by debt, and as a result, will be at best temporary as it will be in breach of the revenue constraints in the reconciliation process; at worst it will never happen as it will now require Democrat votes.
It was clear to me after the US election that Trump was never going to live up to all his promises to make America great again. He took over the country at the end of a 36-year era of continuous stock and bond market rally fuelled by the biggest credit expansion in US history. It would have been an impossible task for anyone to expand all the bubbles and it seems that Trump unsurprisingly has already failed at the first hurdle. After just under 100 days, he is already a lame duck president. This is why he has turned to war which is the last desperate attempt of a leader who fails on the home front in a bankrupt nation.
There is much debate about where the U.S. economy is ultimately heading, but what everybody should be able to agree on is that economic conditions are significantly worse this year than they were last year. It is being projected that U.S. economic growth for the first quarter will be close to zero, thousands of retail stores are closing, factory output is falling, and restaurants and automakers have both fallen on very hard times. As economic activity has slowed down, commercial and consumer bankruptcies are both rising at rates that we have not seen since the last financial crisis. Everywhere you look there are echoes of 2008, and yet most people still seem to be in denial about what is happening. The following are 11 facts that prove that the U.S. economy in 2017 is in far worse shape than it was in 2016…
The so-called Internal Revenue Service is the most deceptive system of the twisting of human mentality to create an intimidated and docile people ever devised. No savage and invading army could come close to conquering millions of people and hold them in “voluntary” subjection as has the misnamed income tax scheme.
None of the above scenarios exist entirely outside the realm of possibility, but they do leave the outside observer wondering who could possibly benefit from such tangled alliances. On a whim, I happened to peek at Raytheon’s stock price. The company that manufactures Tomahawk cruise missiles is trading north of $150/share; not an all-time high, but an exceedingly healthy 20 percent leap over a year ago. With nearly 300 million shares outstanding, that’s enough money to Tomahawk everyone from Damascus to the DMZ without batting an eye. In the game of war, there’s your winner. — Ben Crystal
The fascist college trend that we are witnessing today is by no means new. As early as 1991, Yale University President Benno Schmidt warned: “The most serious problems of freedom of expression in our society today exist on our campuses. The assumption seems to be that the purpose of education is to induce correct opinion rather than to search for wisdom and to liberate the mind.”
You cannot win this war. It is as simple as that. And this Pollyanna notion that these folks are itching for democracy, fast food chains, Big Box stores, and stupid American movies and music is naïve at best.
Today, because Trump and his administration are now committed to convincing Americans that Assad really was responsible for Tuesday’s poison-gas tragedy, the prospects for a full and open investigation are effectively ended. We may never know if there is truth to those allegations or whether we are being manipulated by another “wag the dog” psyop.
In the wake of this week’s attack on Syria, we’ve been forced to endure the same old neocons spouting the same lies on the same news outlets. This is, of course, yet more evidence that in contemporary America, the ruling class is never held accountable for anything. In 2008, the banking elite looted the financial system and nearly collapsed the world economy, and no one of any prominence was punished in any significant way. In 2003, our political leaders spewed waves of deliberately falsified propaganda in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. Thousands of our soldiers died, a million Iraqis perished, and trillions of dollars were wasted. Yet no one was ever held liable for what they had done.
If you prefer fake news, fake data, and a fake narrative about an improving economy and stock market headed to 30,000 don’t read this fact based, reality check article. The level of stupidity engulfing the country has reached epic proportions, as the mainstream fake news networks flog bullshit Russian conspiracy stories, knowing at least 50% of the non-thinking iGadget distracted public believes anything they hear on the boob tube.
How much longer will Americans permit the government to pull the wool over our eyes? Whatever happened to the constitutional right to privacy? Does the Constitution — which requires a showing of some evidence of wrongdoing to a judge before the government may intercept any communications — still mean what it says?
"Our problems are significant, and they are not the singular purview of either political party. We need coherent, consistent, comprehensive and coordinated policies that help fix these problems. The solutions are not binary – they are not either/or, and they are not about Democrats or Republicans."
Reports this week that Obama administration National Security Advisor Susan Rice may have had a hand in “unmasking” members of President Donald Trump’s campaign team in classified documents exploded this week. Despite the reports being taken seriously by members of Congress, multiple news outlets and the president, CNN says there’s nothing to report.
The future is dictated by the corruption and collapse of the government. Trump and BREXIT were merely the effect of symptoms of the decay in government. We are past the point of no return. There is no going back. The storm of political change is upon us. The cards have been dealt. It’s time to turn them over one at a time. No one will be able to fix or stop this trend. Since World War II, politicians have ruled only for their self-interest. They have made promises that will never be kept and far too many people have believed in them. The system is just not sustainable.
So I applaud the fact that all these colleges and universities are dead men walking, that they’re all going to go bankrupt. They are totally overrun and infested with cultural Marxists and progressives, militant leftists that are propagandizing kids with absolutely the wrong kind of values. It’s astonishing that parents are willing to pay even today’s prices to subject their kids to four years of indoctrination. So I’m glad that they’re all going bankrupt.
In other words, China and Russia are shifting away from the dollar-based trade, to commerce which will eventually be backstopped by gold, or what is gradually emerging as an Eastern gold standard, one shared between Russia and China, and which may day backstop their respective currencies.
All the states pretty much have Real ID, now, with driver’s licenses all linked into a central database and passed through the fusion centers and police departments at local, state, and national level. 1984 is now.
Where’s The Media On Foster Death? Television, radio, movies and print media are talking about everything these days — except one thing. Anybody can speak his piece on sick sex, infidelity, specifics of birth control, lesbianism, homosexuality, adultery, polygamy and pornography. Daytime talk shows lick their lips at rating time over stories relating to a Chicago carnivore who raped, killed and ate young boys. Cutting off a man’s penis was a favorite topic for a while. -- It’s difficult to imagine in this atmosphere that there is one topic the media can’t seem to handle. -- But there is one. -- It appears nobody dares question the murder/suicide of White House aide Vincent Foster.
Are millions of Americans about to see the big, juicy pensions that they were counting on to fund their golden years go up in flames in the biggest financial disaster in U.S. history? When Bloomberg published an editorial entitled “Pension Crisis Too Big for Markets to Ignore“, it simply confirmed what a lot of people already knew to be true. Pension funds all over America are woefully underfunded, and they have been pouring mind boggling amounts of money into very risky investments such as Internet stocks and commercial mortgages. Just like with subprime mortgages in 2008, this is a crisis that everyone can see coming well in advance, and yet nothing is being done about it.
Snowden is not and never was a spy for Russia, China or anyone else. He is an American patriot who did more than anyone in decades to unmask the massive operation the U.S. government has to vacuum up all information on all Americans all the time. He’s hero and a true patriot, not a traitor; and should be treated as such.
Liberals construct in their minds the world as they think it should be, and then try to live in it. Their goodness of their ideas is so obvious, so reasonable, so heart-warmingly right that we should have a happy multicultural society, black and white together, and brown and yellow and what have you, kum bah yah, and learn from each other, vive la difference. It doesn’t detract from the appeal of this theory that it allows those holding it to feel really good about themselves.
The US Drug Enforcement Administration seized $3.2 billion in cash over a 10-year period from people who were never under criminal investigation, according to a Justice Department inspector general report. Agents confiscated vehicles, jewelry, and houses, but mostly cash.
Americans paid a record $374,793,000,000 in general sales and gross receipt taxes to state and local governments in fiscal 2016, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. That was up $1,535,980,000—or about 0.4 percent—from the $373,257,020,000 in general sales and gross receipt taxes (in constant 2016 dollars) that state and local governments collected in fiscal 2015. Fiscal 2016 was the third year in a row that general sales and gross receipt taxes set a record.
On the evening of March 27, I clicked a link to an article in The Washington Post. Within seconds, the page went blurry, and I got an ad asking me to pay for a subscription. I then went to the home page. I could see the headlines for all of the articles, and all of the headlines were hotlinks. I clicked on several articles, and the same thing happened again. The article went blurry, and up popped an advertisement asking me to pay for a subscription. I rejoiced. I saw this as the suicide of The Washington Post.
The Fed doesn’t have any idea what it is doing, and this ineptness will be “the ruin of us all,” says Jim Rogers, co-founder of the Quantum Fund, and perhaps the most charming man in the financial world.
We just can’t tolerate people driving around in cars they can fix themselves, that are paid-for and which aren’t generating enough “revenue” for the government. They won’t put it in such honest language, of course.... They never do....
It seems President Trump was on to something when he said healthcare in America would "explode," if left alone. ABC reports that retired teachers in Texas are projected to pay double or triple their current premiums for healthcare beginning September 1.
WHAT A CROCK : “The issue goes beyond ‘political correctness,’ for my colleagues and I recognize that words help to create our reality, power dynamics, and relationships among people,” she told the class. “You are welcome to make a statement about your politics, or conscience, or beliefs by using gender-specific language in your papers, and in many cases gender-specific language is called for, when you can discern with certainty the gender of the characters and author you’re discussing. However, I’ll still have to subtract a point or two for any kind of language that refers to all people as ‘mankind’ or readers as ‘him/he’, for the reasons I’ve outlined carefully above.”
A Pierce College student today filed suit against the school and the Los Angeles Community College District, alleging policies that restrict student free speech rights to tiny zones are unconstitutional and infringe on First Amendment rights.
No, in the American police state, when you find yourself woken in the early hours by someone pounding on your door, smashing through your door, terrorizing your family, killing your pets, and shooting you if you dare to resist in any way, you don’t need to worry that it might be burglars out to rob and kill you: it’s just the police.
CBS Sunday Morning special contributor Ted Koppel is well-known for his promotion of state-sponsored talking points during his 25-year long career as the anchor of ABC’s Nightline. Now Koppel is back in the headlines after interviewing Fox News’ Sean Hannity on CBS Sunday Morning and not airing the full segment.
Following a massive uptick in the number of cellphone and laptop searches conducted at U.S. border checkpoints, a public interest group is suing the government for answers. Earlier this month, reports surfaced revealing that the number of times Customs and Border Protection agents searched electronic devices jumped exponentially over the past couple of years.
Twitter has upped its censorship game and is now blocking certain terms from showing up on the platform’s built-in search engine. The added filters are part of the company’s plans to reduce harassment on the service. Some of these filters were deployed earlier this month when users were given the option to mute certain types of accounts.
The political parties are an illusion, but there is one thing that is not illusory: the absolute desire of government to rule without the consent of the governed and to relegate the governed to a position barely above that of cattle. The President needs to take the gloves off and throw the Marquis of Queensbury rules aside in order to win. We the People need to help him do it. If not, we’re going to lose this country even before the next presidential election and fall into the hands of the globalists. Should that happen, all our freedoms will die, and so will we as a nation. The time to act is now, and the responsibility to act is ours.
Unfortunately, our society is in a period of transition in which the public is skeptical of mainstream media influences, but still pays attention to them. While people are rapidly abandoning these “news sources” for more independent fair, this may be too little too late. As I have outlined above, there are numerous questions which are never asked; numerous solutions that are never presented. The majority remains oblivious to true options and true actions. They remain oblivious to certain truths. The mainstream may have already done all the damage it can do. All that is left is for alternative analysts to pick up the pieces, ask the right questions, fight for the right causes and see if we can salvage this mess in time.
