  • This is the alt-right: Richard Spencer’s horrifying abortion rant

    Lifesitenews ^ | March 21 2017 | Jonathon Van Maren
    For those of you wondering why I’m writing another column about the alt-right, the reason is simple: Every time I do, people comment to explain why I’m wrong. Those people, some of whom I used to know, are starting to buy what the alt-right is peddling. Some of them are brazen enough to inform me that I, as an active social conservative, should be “smart enough” to realize that “the Jews,” whom they somehow believe to be a homogenous and monolithic group, are responsible for all of the evils Western civilization faces. One of these people even wrote that Richard Spencer had “opened...

    <p>In August 2015 viewers of the first Republican primary debate could be forgiven for thinking that Donald Trump was finished. “You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals,” the moderator, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, said to him. “You once told a ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?” Trump didn’t act contrite, or statesmanlike, as conventional candidates might have done. Instead, he interrupted Kelly with another nasty dig, about Rosie O’Donnell, and volunteered that he’d probably insulted others, too. Many pundits proclaimed that the response cemented Trump’s unelectability.</p>

    Bear. According to the number of scent receptors, the bear has the best sense of smell of all terrestrial mammals.

    Defense Secretary James Mattis’ unconventional choices for top Pentagon posts and his reluctance to aggressively push for dramatic increases in the defense budget have rankled Republicans on Capitol Hill who say he’s burning through political capital he needs as he begins reshaping the Pentagon. (Snip) But Republican lawmakers and senior congressional aides said in recent interviews they’re running out of patience with Mattis' staffing decisions, which have disappointed Republican members of the Senate Armed Services Committee hoping to see their ideological allies elevated to senior levels in the Defense Department. Others are grumbling about Mattis’ refusal to advocate a bigger...

    Living in the Western world, to some degree or another we have all accepted that a certain amount of the “Surveillance State” will intrude on our lives; but do you know the real depth of surveillance throughout the US and UK? You might be surprised. recent accusations against the Obama administration and their “wire-tapping” of Donald Trump may in fact only be “accusations”, but if we were to consider the sheer scale of day to day surveillance that takes place on almost every citizen, it would be extremely unlikely that he wasn’t at some point surveilled.

    House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes declared Wednesday that members of Donald Trump’s transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under inadvertent surveillance following November’s presidential election. The White House and Trump’s allies immediately seized on the statement as vindication of the president’s much-maligned claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower phones — even though Nunes himself said that’s not what his new information shows. Democrats, meanwhile, cried foul. Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the intelligence panel, cast doubt on Nunes’ claims in a fiery statement and blasted the chairman for not first sharing the...

The state Board of Barbering, Cosmetology and Esthetics regulates who can cut hair professionally in New Hampshire. In order to obtain a barber’s license, you need to have a high school degree, 800 hours of instruction at a state-approved barbering school, 1,600 hours apprenticing under an already licensed barber, pass a test and pay a fee. There are even steeper requirements for cosmetology, defined as “arranging, dressing, curling, waving, cleansing, cutting, bleaching, coloring or similarly treating the hair...

    This is huge news, and thank God it is vindicating President Trump in his saying he was surveilled. Members of the intelligence community collected ‘incidental’ communications of the Trump transition team during legal surveillance operations, producing ‘dozens’ of reports which eventually unmasked several individuals’ identities and which were ‘widely disseminated,’ a top lawmaker said Wednesday afternoon. House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said none of the reports he had read mentioned Russia or Russians and he was unsure whether the surveillance occurred at Trump Tower. Nunes also was unsure if then President-elect Trump was captured by the surveillance, which...

    A Saudi logistics company has just opened a Houston office to seize the opportunity to ship increased volumes of oilfield and plant construction equipment to the Port of Houston as the Texas and U.S. drilling activity is gaining momentum. Bahri Logistics – which had opened its U.S. headquarters in Baltimore back in 1992 – is now opening an office in Houston to take advantage of expected higher demand for oilfield equipment, called breakbulk cargo in the shipping industry: these are large items that need to be loaded and shipped individually rather than in containers.

  • Will President Trump Be Able to Pass ‘Obamacare Lite?’

    IWB ^ | Gabrielle Seunagal
    The fate of the American Health Care Act, also dubbed as ‘Obamacare Lite’, is looking quite grim. The bill attracted unwavering criticism, even from conservatives. Thomas Massie slammed the AHCA, stating that it will engender the rise of prices and compel healthy Americans to desert the insurance market. Senator Rand Paul recently predicted that Speaker Ryan will be forced to withdraw the current healthcare bill and present a better alternative. The current bill is unfavorable to many conservatives because it retains a plethora of Obamacare’s main elements. In order to truly repeal Obamacare, Republicans must draft a new alternative to...

    Coal ash scare stories are the latest tactic in their long war on coal-fueled electricity generation Coal-fired power plant scrubbers now remove 80-90 % of airborne particulate, mercury, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and other pollutants. But that means “fly ash” and noncombustible residues (what we used to call clinkers) must be sent to landfills. That’s opened a new front for anti-energy activists, who use accidents, “detectable” pollutants in water, and scary stories about health threats to advance their agenda.

    Throughout history, intellectuals have been frequent targets of tyrannical regimes to suppress political dissent. But Chinese communist leader Mao Zedong himself boasted about taking it a step further. After the Chinese Communist Party took power in 1949, Mao had instilled a climate a fear and terror. In the late 1940s to early 1950s, he mobilized Chinese peasants to kill off the landlord class, resulting in estimates of hundreds of thousands to several million deaths. In some areas, public trials became the norm and Mao’s politicized peasants became judge, jury, and executioner of the landlord class in China. Amid the repressive...

    Last week President Trump unveiled his budget blueprint, which detailed savage cuts to most areas of discretionary spending while boosting defense outlays by a whopping $54 billion. Nearly all government agencies were major losers under the President’s budget, except for those dealing with defense and border security. The Department of Energy would see a 5.6 percent cut, or a reduction of $1.7 billion. But digging into those numbers, certain areas of DOE were winners while others were losers. Areas of DOE dealing with clean energy, smart grid technologies, and electric vehicles are either entirely eliminated or suffer steep cuts. Meanwhile,...

You’ll hardly ever see their works in major museums or at major galleries for longer than a short stint. Most of their works are whisked away by private collectors or are sitting in their studios, waiting to be discovered. These artists value quality over quantity, sincerity over cynicism,...

    The word for today is “classicide,” which means “extermination of a class” rather than ethnicity, race, or religion. The term is aptly applied to an unknown, under-reported period in Chinese history that started in the late 1940s and ended in the early 1950s. Right before Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedong took power, a Mao associate in 1948 proclaimed the Communist Party’s intent: “30,000,000 landlords and rich peasants will have to be destroyed.” Mao, unlike the Soviets—who used NKVB/KGB forces to carry out political persecutions—mobilized the Chinese peasantry itself to kill landlords and other perceived privileged classes. It came in...

However if you are a cheese-head and have cut it out for health reasons – because it’s “bad for you” - I have good news: As it turns out, not only is cheese not bad for you, it may in fact be good for you! The research from University College Dublin has concluded that people who eat a lot of cheese are thinner than those who don’t, and it doesn’t actually raise cholesterol levels…They found that the people who consumed the most dairy had lower BMIs, lower body fat percentages, smaller waists...

    In recent news, the Department of Homeland Security announced restrictions on persons from several countries with a Muslim majority population. Jordan, Turkey, Egypt, Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates have been commanded by the DHS to place all electronic devices that are larger than a cell phone into checked baggage when departing towards America. Some news outlets are dubbing this protocol as the “Muslim laptop ban.” The constraint engendered criticism from people who perceive it as discriminatory to Muslims, while capturing support from others who view it as a necessary safety precaution.

    The job of FBI Director is beginning to look available, as James Comey, a man both reviled by Democrats and Republicans, may be on the chopping block. Before President Donald Trump was elected, Comey became the Democrats’ Public Enemy No. 1 after he sent a letter to Congress announcing the reopening of a probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails—just over a week before Election Day. When he announced no new charges, the FBI head became the scorn of Republicans across the country. This week, the Obama-appointed director testified before the House Intelligence Committee, confirming Trump’s campaign is being investigated, namely “whether...

    How about one that's actually two pistols welded together? Hickok45 does some close range shooting with this double barrel 1911 pistol. Hickok45 got another chance to make double holes with each shot using a double-barreled 1911 pistol. The pistol is actually two pistols in one welded together. Named the 2011 Dueller Prismatic this double barrel beast fires two .45 ACP cartridges with each pull of the trigger. Two large holes appear side by side in targets with each single pull of the trigger. Now, that is pretty slick. Remember, a single full metal jacket .45 ACP slug weighs, on average...

    So, are you going to love the judge, or list the judge?: I don’t know about anyone else, but it is really difficult to even listen to these confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch. The questioning and posturing by the Democrats has become so transparently fake and scripted that it’s become like watching one of those “Love it or List it” shows on HGTV. You know, one of those shows that is supposed to be “reality”, but is painful to watch because every word anyone on the show says is so obviously written by someone else and recited in a...

    Michael Bloomberg has continued to pump money into state politics to find ways to infringe on the Second Amendment. His latest attempt was stopped in New Mexico on Monday, 13 March, 2017.  A key vote against the measure came form Representative Eliseo Alcon (D) Milan. From nmpolitics.com: A legislative committee on Monday effectively killed a bill to expand background checks for gun purchases — an issue that drew large crowds to the Capitol as well as big campaign contributions and intense lobbying and advertising. The House Judiciary Committee voted 7-6 to table House Bill 548 after a lengthy hearing....
  • The CIA’s Heart Attack Gun

    03/22/2017 3:32:29 AM PDT · by gaggs · 28 replies
    A CIA secret weapon used for assassination shoots a small poison dart to cause a heart attack, as explained in Congressional testimony in the short video below. The dart from this secret CIA weapon can penetrate clothing and leave nothing but a tiny red dot on the skin. On penetration of the deadly dart, the individual targeted for assassination may feel as if bitten by a mosquito, or they may not feel anything at all. The poisonous dart completely disintegrates upon entering the target.

    Gareth Southgate prepared for his first game as permanent England manager by insisting foundations are now in place to narrow the gap on their opponents Germany - but warned the country's "island" mentality must end. England's 3-2 win over the World Cup holders in Berlin last March left then manager Roy Hodgson proclaiming his "finest moment" in charge - only to resign in June after a humiliating last-16 exit to Iceland at Euro 2016. Southgate, who replaced Hodgson's successor Sam Allardyce after an unbeaten four-game run in interim charge, faces a stern test in Dortmund on Wednesday before a World...
  • Mexico Warns Firms That Building a Border Wall Is Not in Their Best Interests

    Mexico's government on Tuesday warned Mexican companies that it would not be in their best "interests" to participate in the construction of U.S. President Donald Trump's border wall, though there will be no legal restrictions or sanctions to stop them if they tried. While some Mexican companies stand to potentially benefit from the controversial infrastructure project, residents south of the border view the wall and Trump's repeated calls to have Mexico pay for it as offensive. That is putting public pressure on firms to abstain from participating. "We're not going to have laws to restrict (companies), but I believe considering...

    His autobiography, “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” was made into a film directed by George Clooney and starred Sam Rockwell as Barris. In the book (subtitled “An Unauthorized Autobiography”), he claimed to have worked for the CIA as an assassin during the 1960s and ’70s, a claim which the CIA denied.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) recounted Monday some of the policies of previous presidents that could have been wielded against Democratic Supreme Court nominees to show the hypocrisy of the questions being asked of President Donald Trump’s nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch. He did so while on the Senate Judiciary Committee for the confirmation hearing of the nominee. “Some Democrats slandered Judge Gorsuch,” Cruz explained, “as being ‘against the little guy’ because he has dared to rule based on the law, the law that Congress has passed, and not on the specific identity of the specific litigants appearing before him. This is...
