Late last week, President Donald Trump told CBS News that domestic surveillance of American citizens should the “No. 1” topic of inquiry until we can find out “what the hell is going on” with it. Also late last week, the National Security Agency — the federal government’s 60,000-person-strong domestic spying agency — announced that it would voluntarily hold back on its more aggressive uses of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

That section permits the NSA to capture communications between foreigners and Americans without a warrant from any court, even though the NSA has its own secret court that has granted well over 99 percent of applications for spying brought to it.  Continue reading “More Spying, More Lying”

I had a really nice slingshot as a kid. Not a Y-shaped stick with a rubber band on it, but a seriously legit metal slingshot with an arm brace and everything. But it had nothing on the Assolar SS-12, which I just saw on The Gadgeteer.

Look at this thing!   Continue reading “Apparently slingshots are really cool now and nobody told me”

The Economic Collapse – by Michael Snyder

Why do things never seem to change no matter who we send to Washington?  It seems like for decades many of us have been trying to change the direction of this country by engaging in the political process.  But no matter how hard we try, the downward spiral of our nation just continues to accelerate.  Just look at this latest spending deal.  Even though the American people gave the Republicans control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, this deal very closely resembles “an Obama administration-era budget”.  It increases spending even though we have already been adding more than a trillion dollars a year to the national debt, it specifically forbids the building of a border wall, it fully funds Planned Parenthood, and there are dozens of other concessions to the Democrats in it.  As I previously warned, these “negotiations” were a political rout of epic proportions.   Continue reading “Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems”

Common Dreams – by Jon Queally

The Trump administration in the United States has prepared criminal charges in order to arrest Julian Assange, founder and publisher of the media outlet WikiLeaks, CNN reported on Thursday.

Citing “U.S. officials familiar with the matter,” CNN reports the Justice Department “investigation of Assange and WikiLeaks dates to at least 2010″—which is around the time when WikiLeaks first gained international attention after it published thousands of leaked classified documents, including footage of military helicopter attack on civilians in Iraq. U.S. Army Private Chelsea Manning was ultimately convicted for being the source of those leaks and is still serving a sentence in a U.S. military prison.   Continue reading “As Reports of Assange Arrest Warrant Emerge, Who Will Defend WikiLeaks?”

SHTF Plan – by Jeremiah Johnson

The headlines are awash with the recent tensions with North Korea, and most are focused intently upon this act of the play that has been running hot for several years, now.  Akin to the proverbial frog in cold water, however, we are not paying as much attention to the surveillance state that is continuing to wrap its tentacles around us.  Eurasia is our ally, Eastasia is our enemy…and nobody notices that the chocolate ration has been diminished.  While everyone focuses on what is reported in the headline news, everybody misses what is happening right before their eyes.   Continue reading “The Transformation Of Our Nation Into A Complete Surveillance State Is Almost In Place: “You’re Known, Your Vehicle Is Known, Your Daily Itinerary, Shopping Habits… It’s All Being Recorded””

During last week’s confirmation hearings, Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch explained that the Founding Fathers hedged in the right to keep and bear arms because they were “jealous of their liberties.”

He said this in response to Senator Ben Sasse’s (R-NE) question about the Bill of Rights. Gorsuch stressed that Amendments protecting freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and private property also show the how determined the Founders were to protect liberty.  Continue reading “Neil Gorsuch: Bill of Rights Added Because Founding Fathers Were ‘Jealous of Their Liberties’”

Tuesday on Sean Hannity’s nationally syndicated radio show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter, author of “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!” warned Trump to get past health care policy and tax cuts and resume working on what he ran on, which included immigration and the economy.

Coulter warned the Trump administration was already beginning to resemble previous Republican administrations and she cited the indication Trump was willing to increase military spending.   Continue reading “Coulter: Trump Administration Starting to Look Like Every Other GOP Administration — Get Back to Immigration, Jobs, Trade”

Contractors likely breached security and handed over documents describing the Central Intelligence Agency’s use of hacking tools to anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

Two officials speaking on condition of anonymity said intelligence agencies have been aware since the end of last year of the breach, which led to WikiLeaks releasing thousands of pages of information on its website on Tuesday.   Continue reading “CIA contractors likely source of latest WikiLeaks release: U.S. officials”

By now just about everyone who has been following the Oregon standoff has seen the edited video, as previously reported on DH. As details unfold a number of questions arise as to the ambush of the parties on their way to a public meeting, and the use of force used by law enforcement that killed Finicum. While an argument can always be made the group broke certain laws or overstepped the boundaries of propriety, their actions amounted to little more than civil disobedience. A carefully orchestrated and forceful raid was executed which ended in a man being brutally killed while displaying no aggression to law enforcement. Who were the key players in this ambush? It’s always the ones you trust the most.   Continue reading “#PatriotLivesMatter: Betrayal Behind Oregon Shooting”

US Magistrate Judge Stacie Beckerman said that they posed a danger to public safety and were considered a flight risk, as she was concerned they would not follow orders to return to Oregon for criminal proceedings.   Continue reading “Court denies bail to Ammon Bundy & 3 others as Oregon occupation continues”

Europe’s Nuclear Secret - US Carelessness Could RecoilCNN iReport – by Drlamba

From 1999 through 2010, Time magazine wrote a number of articles about “Europe’s dirty secret.” What is that secret? The fact that America stores hundreds of nuclear weapons there. Most people are completely unaware of this situation. Even those who are scrutinizing it don’t fully understand the dangers posed by these weapons. When we talk about European nations with nuclear weapons, we usually think of Britain and France. But there are five other nations with nuclear bombs, bombs that technically belong to America.

In Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany and Turkey, the United States has about 150 to 200 thermonuclear bombs.   Continue reading “Europe’s Nuclear Secret – US Carelessness Could Recoil”

I am the Witness – by Andrew Hitchcock

The Rothschilds have been in control of the world for a very long time, and I produce my evidence for this below in a timeline.

The Rothschilds have, with their founding of Zionism, betrayed the principles of the Torah and as you will see in this timeline, the people who have suffered the most at the hands of these Zionists are the Jews.

I name individual Rothschilds where I can, but due to the secrecy which they shroud themselves in, naming the exact Rothschild is not always possible.   Continue reading “The History of The House of Rothschild”

NEW YORK (AP) — The High Line, a park that turned a dilapidated stretch of elevated railway on Manhattan’s West Side into one of New York’s newest tourist attractions, may have brought a different kind of visitor: a cockroach that can withstand harsh winter cold and never seen before in the U.S.

Rutgers University insect biologists Jessica Ware and Dominic Evangelista said the species Periplaneta japonica is well documented in Asia but was never confirmed in the United States until now. The scientists, whose findings were published in the Journal of Economic Entomology, say it is too soon to predict the impact but that there is probably little cause for concern.   Continue reading “Invasive cockroach found in NYC can take the cold”

The 23-year-old charged as the gunman in the deadly shooting at Los Angeles International Airport told authorities at the scene that he acted alone and had been dropped off by a friend, a law enforcement official who has been briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press on Sunday.

Authorities do not believe the friend knew that Paul Ciancia, the man charged in the attack, planned to open fire inside LAX’s Terminal 3 just moments later, killing one Transportation Security Administration officer and wounding three other people, including two more TSA workers, said the official, who is not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation and requested anonymity.   Continue reading “Gunman Told Police He Acted Alone in LAX Shooting”
