    It is becoming apparent that some very powerful people behind the scenes have been running the country independently of who is in the Executive, Legislative or Judicial seats of power. When they get upset, they drive whomever they don't like or over whom they have no control out of power. These same people or entities have know all of the things that Obama and Hillary and those directed by them did, but said nothing about it because they were doing the bidding of the powerful. They also know what the media has been doing and obviously approve of it. All...

The unusually high number of scientist deaths in recent years has made people question the suspicious nature of his death.
  • How Deep Was the Obama-Iran Relationship?

    The Obama administration’s effort to engage Iran remained a matter of suspicion until the 44th American president left the White House. Concerns began mounting especially after Obama turned his back on the 2009 uprising in parallel to the revelation of secret correspondence with Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. As more light is shed, the more we realize how far this relationship expanded. Known members of Iran’s lobbies and others enjoyed unprecedented access to the White House. This new knowledge calls for a complete overhaul of the corrupt U.S. foreign policy establishment. *snip* And this is only a tip of the...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that she still believes the policies that the Democratic Party implemented during the Obama administration are working for the American people. Host Chuck Todd played a clip from Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D., Mass.) speech in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday in which she listed the Russians and FBI Director James Comey as reasons that helped Donald Trump win the presidential election in November. Warren then held her own party accountable for the results. "We can't let ourselves off the hook so easily," Warren said. "Not as progressives,...

I have been writing about NICS and the correlation with gun sales for a while. The numbers that were...

    Hillary Clinton’s staff is still furious over her loss, and more than anything, they blame former President Barack Obama. The camps are clashing over the heated blame game. Clinton’s side insists Obama was the biggest reason she lost, according to Clinton staffers that spoke with Axios. They think his lack of support was more harmful than her scandals, Russian interference in the election or FBI Director James Comey’s investigation. Obama didn’t do enough, wasn’t active enough and should have been much less cautious in imposing sanctions on Russia, Clinton’s camp said.

    Over the past 10-years personal income in the US has increased at a 3.39% annualized rate which is the slowest 10-year annualized growth rate since the data began in 1960. Clearly, there has been a ‘stair-step’ decline in the growth rate of personal income over the past several decades. In the 1980s personal income averaged a 9.5% annualized growth rate, in the 1990s it averaged a 6.4% annualized growth rate, and in the 2000s it averaged a 5.2% annualized growth rate. Thus far in the 2010s, the average annualized growth rate has fallen to 3.9%. [..snip..]

    House Republicans will move this week to wipe out a series of rules finalized in the closing days of the Obama administration, including one that could prevent certain Social Security recipients from purchasing guns. Under the rule — part of President Obama’s gun control push — Social Security was to scour its lists for people receiving certain disability payments who were deemed mentally impaired, then flag their names in the national gun-purchasing background-check system. The Obama administration billed it as a way to provide more complete information about people who shouldn’t have access to firearms, but gun rights advocates saw...

    “Turns out I’m really good at killing people,” President Obama reportedly said in 2011. “Didn’t know that was gonna be a strong suit of mine.” As much as his White House attempted to downplay that aspect of his presidency, it was a strong suit — if that rather glib term can be fairly applied to such a macabre achievement. Nowhere was Obama’s grim talent so evident as in his drone strike program, and now that his time in office has officially come to a close, we have his final drone kill count. Well, sort of.

    Before he left office Barack Obama commuted more federal sentences than any other president in history, most famously that of former Army Private Bradley Manning, who divulged hundreds of thousands of classified documents and seriously damaged national security. Drug offenders were also high on Obama’s list. Notably absent was Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, whom Obama ransomed for several notorious Taliban terrorists, and Obama’s National Security Advisor proclaimed an American hero. Why did Manning get the nod and not Bergdahl? Obama was far more personally invested in Bergdahl’s case, feting his parents in the Rose Garden upon the soldier’s release from...

    "I have to protect the Filipino people. It is my duty. And I tell you now, if I have to declare martial law, I will declare it," Duterte said, in a speech before a group businessmen in his hometown of Davao on Saturday night.

    CHICAGO — He may be leaving the White House but he isn't totally going away. As President Obama gave his farewell address to the nation on Tuesday night, he also began the shift to a third stage of his political career. The once young, idealistic senator-turned-two-term-president will soon become an influential strategist and ally to those worried about the future with Donald Trump at the helm of the most powerful nation on the planet. Obama nodded to this new role in his speech Tuesday. He did not directly criticize his successor, but used lines like "I reject discrimination against Muslim-Americans"...

    It’s like an alarm bell in the night for prophecy experts. Seventy nations are meeting in Paris this weekend for a massive summit to coordinate efforts against the Jewish state of Israel. According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, a statement issued after the conference will demand an end to the “occupation that began in 1967,” a two-state solution and no recognition of Israeli control of Jerusalem. It may even lead to recognition of a Palestinian state. “There’s no telling what this meeting might produce,” said Joseph Farah, founder of WND.com and author of the new prophecy book “The Restitution of...

    Donald Trump has embarked on an unprecedented purge of government officials appointed by President Barack Obama in a bid to wipe the slate clean ahead of his inauguration. Scores of presidential appointees, from ambassadors in far flung capitols to two nuclear security chiefs to the head of Washington's National Guard, will be leaving their posts on Friday at noon, having received unexpected orders to do so, just as Trump takes office as one of the most unpopular and scandal-ridden incoming presidents in history. While his recent predecessors were swept toward inauguration day on a tide of goodwill, Mr Trump has...

    Seen from above, the 2016 electoral map of New York City is blue with dots of red. Trump’s home district is blue, but across the water a red wedge slices into Brooklyn. Around that red wedge are districts where Hillary won 90 percent of the vote and Trump was lucky to get 5 percent. Inside it, he beat her in district after district. The voters who handed him that victory are the Chassidic Jews of Williamsburg who dress in fur hats and black caftans. Their districts, crammed in by hipsters and minorities, are a world away from the progressive activist...

    Is it fake news when on MLK weekend Loretta Lynch issues a scorching 164 page report blasting Chicago police for using force on Blacks 10 times more often then Whites... but nowhere mentioning that Blacks are murdered 15 times more often than Whites, or that Blacks are the murders 20 times more often than Whites, or that Police are 30 times more often to be killed by a Black than by a White? Seems like a shot in the face at Jeff Sessions and a gift to BLM and civil rights leaders, in the final hour... Statistical Ideas' blog's Salil...

    OBAMA: "Well, I — I — what it indicated was something that we kept on seeing throughout my presidency, and that was a tactical decision on the part of Republicans to say no because their view was that if they said yes, and there was any sort of bipartisan cooperation, that would benefit me politically. And if there wasn’t, that would hurt me politically particularly at a time when the economy was doing poorly. They figured we could do pretty good with midterms if it seems as if Washington’s dysfunctional at a time when everybody’s hurting."
