By now readers to this site have seen some outrageous indoctrination assignments springing forth from public schools. Yet wonders never cease when dissecting the exact mechanism of influencing young, impressionable and trusting minds. It cannot be by accident.
Over the weekend, a reader sent us an actual homework assignment from an unspecified elementary grade (below). It’s titled “Medicine” and coerces the young mind to believe that vaccines (and prescription drugs) are the main route to overall health, if not the only route. That without them, there would be a gaping lack of health – a vaccine deficiency? Continue reading “Parent Offers Epic Response to Vaccine Homework”
Running out of options to keep his country afloat, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras ordered local governments to move their funds to the central bank.
With negotiations over bailout aid deadlocked, Tsipras needs the cash for salaries, pensions and a repayment to the International Monetary Fund. Greek bonds fell after the move, pushing three-year yields to the highest since the nation’s debt restructuring in 2012. The order was questioned by local officials and slammed by the leading opposition party. Continue reading “Tsipras to Seize Public-Sector Funds to Keep Greece Afloat”
If Trey Gowdy manages to get to the bottom of the Benghazi scandal, we might see Hillary Clinton held responsible for the deaths of three in the terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy.
But, even if she manages to avoid being held accountable for their deaths, there’s a new scandal that’s being brought to the attention of the voting public that could have her found guilty with blood on her hands.
A 2008 donation to the Clinton foundation is now being called into question as the company who donated money was later granted a special privilege once Mrs. Clinton was nominated Secretary of State. Continue reading “New Hillary Scandal – Should She Kiss Her White House Dreams Goodbye?”
With “tax day” now firmly behind us, it is expected that 2015 will show a record level of tax collections. This is a good thing, right? Maybe not.
Over the weekend, an economist friend of mine sent me an interesting piece of analysis discussing the record level of tax receipts as a percentage of the economy. This is something that I have written about in the past. Continue reading “Tax Receipts Flash Economic Warning Sign”
They’re fast, convenient, and easy to use. Manufacturers even produce packaged foods specifically for their use. What I’m referring to are of course, microwave ovens, the household appliance that is still regularly used as a part of meal preparation and re-heating in approximately 90% of American homes.
I say “still” in the previous statement because the dangers associated with microwave use have been documented for quite some time, dangers that I will once again outline in this article. Ultimately, arguments can always be made for the use of anything harmful if done in moderation, but given the hectic nature of most of our lives, the convenience the device offers makes little to moderate use seem very unlikely to be practiced. Continue reading “Why You Shouldn’t Be a Part of The 90% of Americans Who Still Use Microwaves”
A federal judge issued a stern rebuke Friday to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s method for breaking up an illegal online betting ring. The Las Vegas court frowned on the FBI’s ruse of disconnecting Internet access to $25,000-per-night villas at Caesar’s Palace Hotel and Casino. FBI agents posed as the cable guy and secretly searched the premises.
The government claimed the search was legal because the suspects invited the agents into the room to fix the Internet. US District Judge Andrew P. Gordon wasn’t buying it. He ruled that if the government could get away with such tactics like those they used to nab gambling kingpin Paul Phua and some of his associates, then the government would have carte blanche power to search just about any property. Continue reading “FBI can’t cut Internet and pose as cable guy to search property, judge says”
I took command of the Marine Corps Security Force Company aboard United States Naval Base, Guantanamo Bay on August 29, 2001. Guantanamo Bay was familiar to me — I had deployed there in 1993 as a young lieutenant to help with the care and security of over 13,000 Haitian emigrants plucked from the Caribbean Sea. Essentially an idyllic small town, the tight-knit community welcomed me and my family with ceremony and a fair amount of celebrity, the proper formality for the senior Marine, but something to which I was personally unaccustomed. I was a big fish in a little pond, though fairly junior in rank. Continue reading “How Guantanamo Bay Became the Place the U.S. Keeps Detainees”
Scientists in Poland are working on body armor technology that uses specially-designed liquid to protect against bullets, according to Reuters.
Unlike Newtonian liquids such as water, the Shear-Thickening Fluid (STF) hardens on impact from a projectile, the report says, offering protection from bullets. Continue reading “Scientists in Poland working on liquid body armor, report says”
SEVEN YEARS AFTER the Federal Aviation Administration first warned Boeing that its new Dreamliner aircraft had a Wi-Fi design that made it vulnerable to hacking, a new government report suggests the passenger jets might still be vulnerable.
Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets, as well as Airbus A350 and A380 aircraft, have Wi-Fi passenger networks that use the same network as the avionics systems of the planes, raising the possibility that a hacker could hijack the navigation system or commandeer the plane through the in-plane network, according to the US Government Accountability Office, which released a report about the planes today. Continue reading “Hackers Could Commandeer New Planes Through Passenger Wi-Fi”
European Central Bank President Mario Draghi was attacked by a protester Wednesday during a briefing for journalists in Frankfurt.
Just minutes into his opening remarks, a women jumped onto his desk shouting “end ECB dictatorship!” She was carried out of the room by security guards, but not before showering the startled Draghi with confetti. Continue reading “ECB President Mario Draghi attacked by protester”
Earth shaking words from a giant on Wall Street.
The insiders know the next collapse is coming. What form it takes may remain a surprise to account holders and investors who are not on guard.
But JPMorgan Chase chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon is positioning his firm to pick up the pieces after it hits. Continue reading ““There Will Be a More Volatile Crisis”: JPMorgan CEO Signals Coming Financial Tsunami”
Jade Helm is morphing into something very dark and very sinister. At the conclusion of the article, many of us will be asking about how we should collectively respond. We certainly need to explore the possibilities.
Patriot Protests Against Jade Helm
One of the reasons that I believe that Jade Helm could go live is because of the bravado and attention being given to this topic. The globalists who have hijacked our government have taken off the gloves and there is no denying what they are up to. As a result, people who have been clueless about the New World Order are awakening to the level of tyranny that is growing within our country. Continue reading “Jade Helm’s Use of Death Squads”
Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood is being called the “New Joe Arpaio” for his refusal to abandon the people of his county to satisfy the ideological needs of a tyrant and a flowerpowered state official. Gov. Moonbeam recently signed an executive order, telling law enforcement in the state that they cannot work with federal immigration officers to detain illegal aliens who commit crimes, making California a sanctuary state. Unfortunately for the head kook, Youngblood is not a state employee and cannot be forced to disobey federal law.
