While there is no official review process required for labeling a product as “Made in the U.S.A.,” a company can get into legal trouble for misusing that label, as doing so may constitute false advertising. A new report from an advertising watchdog group claims that Walmart’s website has more than 100 examples of products incorrectly marketed as made in America.

According to a letter [PDF] recently sent by the group Truth In Advertising to Walmart CEO Doug McMillon, “Walmart’s website is mired in USA labeling errors.”   Continue reading “Report Finds 100+ Products Labeled “Made In U.S.A.” That Were Made Elsewhere”

Seattle Times – by Jennifer Sullivan

Citizens who curse at police and call them abusive names while they’re investigating a crime are protected from arrest by the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech, the state Supreme Court ruled Thursday in a case out of Seattle.

The justices threw out the juvenile obstruction conviction of a then-17-year-old boy who pelted Seattle police officers with obscenities and insults when they were called to his house to investigate a reported disturbance in 2011.   Continue reading “Court: First Amendment protects profanity against police”

“Imagine this: you want to buy and own Product X, which is valued at $10,000. You’re in a rare position. You can make that product sell for $1. You can do that. Then you can buy it and own it. In fact, you can do that with lots of products. Now, instead of products, imagine you can do that with whole companies, with industrial sectors, and even with large chunks of nations. You can spend $1 instead of $10,000. But wait, there’s more. You can re-inflate what you just reduced to $1. You can make it worth $10,000 again and you still own it. You can go up and you can go down. You control both sides of the mountain, the upside and the downside. This is money-management, Globalism-style. This is day-in, day-out manipulation. It’s done with the same routine configurations as making and having breakfast. A few of these configurations are calledtrade treaties.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)   Continue reading “Big money: pump and dump as a way of life”

New Yorkers may soon be unable to smoke in their own homes, as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is pressing landlords and developers to prohibit residents from lighting up inside apartments.

This comes as part of the de Blasio administration’s efforts to reduce smoking citywide. It recently released a “sustainability blueprint” that outlined the initiative, which involves paying four health advocacy groups $9,000 each to get apartment complexes to ban smoking, reported the New York Post.   Continue reading “Butting in: NYC mayor wants to stop smoking in private homes”

New York State officially banned fracking for natural gas by issuing its final environmental impact statement, concluding a seven-year review. The environmental agency said fracking posed risks to land, water, natural resources and public health.

The release of the environmental impact statement on Monday concluded seven years of analysis by the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). It first issued a moratorium against fracking in 2008.   Continue reading “It’s official: New York bans fracking”

The United States is now the world’s second largest Spanish-speaking country after Mexico, according to a new study published by the prestigious Instituto Cervantes.

The report says there are 41 million native Spanish speakers in the US plus a further 11.6 million who are bilingual, mainly the children of Spanish-speaking immigrants. This puts the US ahead of Colombia (48 million) and Spain (46 million) and second only to Mexico (121 million).   Continue reading “US now has more Spanish speakers than Spain – only Mexico has more”

The F-35 Can't Beat The Plane It's Replacing In A Dogfight: ReportFoxtrot Alpha – by Tyler Rogoway

We’ve heard of significant shortcomings before with the fighter jet that’s supposed to be America’s future, but this is just as bad as it gets. The F-35 performed so dismally in a dogfight, that the test pilot remarked that the it had pretty much no place fighting other aircraft within visual range.

And it’s even worse than a mere maneuverability issue. At one point, the pilot’s helmet was so big he couldn’t even turn his head inside the cockpit.   Continue reading “The F-35 Can’t Beat The Plane It’s Replacing In A Dogfight: Report”

In the last three months we have seen dozens upon dozens of suspicious military equipment movements throughout the country coupled with numerous urban military training drills with a strong domestic focus.

Now, even more evidence of some sort of buildup ahead of Jade Helm 2015 has surfaced with video footage taken in Utah showing yet another massive train full of military equipment.   Continue reading “Massive train full of military equipment seen heading into “hostile” Salt Lake City, Utah ahead of Jade Helm 2015”

Poisoned Water – by Craig Nelms

At a family gathering during which the subject of conversation had travelled through spiritual and truther subjects, my Aunt turned to me and, in a whisper, said, “I’m not going to accept the mark!” I looked at her with sort of a ‘really?’ expression on my face and she looked at me and nodded. However I wasn’t surprised that she “wasn’t going to take the mark” but rather that she didn’t realize that she was already an integral part of The System of the Beast. I just kept my mouth shut, though, and the gathering continued on.   Continue reading “Finding the bars of your cage”


In the long and storied past, America prided itself on being a country based upon law. Once this was true! Today, the last vestige of a society built upon natural law and incontrovertible principles is dead. The legal system is now founded on whim, political pressure and sentiment. Under such a framework, the Supreme Court has forfeited the final semblance of legitimacy. The United States no longer can claim it is a constitutional republic. The tyranny of the judiciary in not new! However, the latest decisions on Obamacare and Same-Sex marriage effectively gut the credibility and the meaning of the constitution.   Continue reading “SCOTUScare from the Same-Sex Supreme Court”

The Last Bastille – by Kyle Reardon

Statists have always told libertarians that if we don’t like the law, we should work to change it. Unfortunately, what this means is that if individuals want to secure their liberty, they must do so by begging for it from those tyrants who imagine themselves to be our rulers. Worse, some opportunists use this dynamic in order to put themselves on this week’s news cycle, in order to further their own self-aggrandizement. As the Austrian economists put it, human action is purposeful behavior, yet, what behavior can be said to be purposeful if the actors are doing the same things over and over again, all the while expecting different results?   Continue reading “Grassroots Lobbying Does Not Work: A Review of Chris Cantwell’s “Anarcho-Lobbyist” Series (Season One)”

Midgetman’s request will be answered. Specifically why medium caliber sniper rifles are not going to be the the answer to the proliferation of body armor on the battlefield.

Supreme Court and GunsAmmoLand

Denver, CO -( In yet another decision that thumbs it’s nose at the Supreme Court’s landmark D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago rulings, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals held today that the Second Amendment does not protect gun rights outside of one’s home.

The case, Bonidy v. United States Postal Service, challenged 39 C.F.R. § 232.1(l), which prohibits the storage and carriage of firearms on USPS property. The district court decision found that the law was unconstitutional as applied to its prohibition on guns in parking lots, but not the ban on carry inside government buildings.   Continue reading “Another Federal Circuit Court Unravels Second Amendment Gun Rights”

Wake Up From Your Slumber

This little fact changes everything.

In 1943, Germany forced the Bank of Greece to lend it two loans worth 11 billion euros in today’s money.

And Germany has still not paid back the debt.

This money is not war reparations, which are a separate and much more complex issue.   Continue reading “German hypocrisy: Germany owes Greece 11 billion euros in unpaid loans”
