    A North Charleston homeowner is facing charges after officials say he was operating an illegal homeless shelter at the property. The Post and Courier of Charleston reports North Charleston officials say 51-year-old Cyrus Kamini was charged Monday with operating a business without a license, operating an unsafe dwelling and not having permits for work done on the site. Officials boarded up the 1,500-square-foot home owned by Kamini that was divided into as many as eight units.

  • Here's Why Wages Have Stagnated--and Will Continue to Stagnate

    Of Two Minds ^ | 14 August 2016 | Charles Hugh Smith
    The only way to reverse declines in labor participation and stagnation in wages and demand is to make it easier to start enterprises and hire people. The reason why mainstream economists don't understand these developments is they don't: 1. Consider the systemic impact of energy and EROEI (energy returned on energy invested). 2. Consider the systemic impact of fast-rising private and public debt. 3. Consider the systemic impact of rising inflation resulting from state-cartel capitalism; the only possible output of state-cartel capitalism is a higher cost structure for' the entire economy. 4. Consider that consumption is exhausted because everyone already...

    In this 1969 documentary of a seditious meeting of communists with the notorious communist and terrorist Walter T Howard CCCP of New York City, we see Bernie Sanders attending a meeting and a filming of a North Vietnamese communist film that portrays the communist viet cong as freedom fighters and the Americans as torturers and barbarians. This and other films were shown by student radicals and marxists as Americans were being killed by the North Vietnamese army and the VietCong and as Vietnamese civilians were being murdered, tortured, buried alive and extorted by the communists and their gangster protection schemes...

    In the People’s Republic of China, archives do not belong to the people, they belong to the Communist Party. They are often housed in a special building on the local party committee premises, which are generally set among lush and lovingly manicured grounds guarded by military personnel. Access would have been unthinkable until a decade or so ago, but over the past few years a quiet revolution has been taking place, as increasing quantities of documents older than 30 years have become available for consultation to professional historians armed with a letter of recommendation. The extent and quality of the...

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has purchased a nearly $600,000 summer retreat on Vermont’s Champlain Islands, the Vermont newspaper Seven Days reported Monday. “We’ve traveled up to the islands many times over the years — almost always on day trips,” Jane Sanders, the former White House contender's wife, said in a statement. "The entire family is very excited about it.” “We’ve always been impressed with the North Hero community, eaten at the North Hero House and Shore Acres and have suggested them to friends who were looking for a beautiful place to stay or have dinner.

    The top echelons of the global establishment seem to be going all in for a corrupt communist — and they don't care who knows it. One of the world's most powerful so-called “banksters,” Baron Eric de Rothschild of the unfathomably wealthy Rothschild banking dynasty, publicly announced his support for Bulgarian communist operative Irina Bokova and her scandal-plagued campaign to lead the United Nations. The implications of the developments are massive and shed a great deal light on the establishment itself. Basically, the establishment insiders' insider is boldly declaring, at a critical time, his support for Bokova's campaign, which has been...

    The racial wealth gap is so wide it would take black families over two centuries to catch up to white families, a jaw-dropping new study found. Unless public policy intervenes, black households wouldn’t amass the wealth of today's white households for another 228 years, according to research from the Corporation for Enterprise Development and the Institute for Policy Studies. The findings are part of a study, called “The Ever-Growing Gap,” that examined the accumulation of wealth over the past 30 years and how wealth-building policies have disproportionately given white, already wealthy Americans a boost. Over the past three decades, the...

    A majority of black Americans say that at some point in their lives they’ve experienced discrimination or were treated unfairly because of their race or ethnicity, but blacks who have attended college are more likely than those without any college experience to say so, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey. About eight in ten blacks with at least some college experience (81%) say they’ve faced discrimination or been treated unfairly because of their race or ethnicity, compared with 59% of blacks who have never attended college. These differences also extend to more specific incidents of racial discrimination. For...

    Who was the biggest mass murderer in the history of the world? Most people probably assume that the answer is Adolf Hitler, architect of the Holocaust. Others might guess Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, who may indeed have managed to kill even more innocent people than Hitler did, many of them as part of a terror famine that likely took more lives than the Holocaust. But both Hitler and Stalin were outdone by Mao Zedong. From 1958 to 1962, his Great Leap Forward policy led to the deaths of up to 45 million people – easily making it the biggest episode...

In the summer, the flowers would be fresh; in the winter, they might be made of paper or cloth. Once the girl wanted to announce that she was ready for courtship, she would put on a much more elaborate headdress of flowers. When she found a man to marry, her friends...

    We all know that Venezuelan socialism has been a total disaster. People were reportedly eating dogs, cats, and birds for sustenance. Crime was spiking. Inflation is out of control—and there is what could only be described as gladiatorial battles to get the most basic supplies at the supermarkets. Energy shortages have led to rolling blackouts. Toilet paper is now a luxury item. Access to medicine has been a nightmare, with the country’s entire hospital system operating in deplorable conditions. It’s so bad that some places don’t have gloves or soap. Of course, many Venezuelans have resorted to looting to survive.

    Latin America’s hard-left -- the left enraptured by Fidel Castro’s 57-year-old Cuban Revolution and Hugo Chavez’s 21st Century Socialism -- has been losing terrain, indeed collapsing, both on efficiency and on moral grounds. Countries ruled by like-minded leaders and parties have generally shown a poorer economic performance than the region at large. This has notably been the case of Argentina under Nestor and Cristina Kirchner; of Brazil under the second mandate of Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and his successor, Dilma Rousseff; and, most of all, of Venezuela throughout its 17 years of Chavismo. True, Bolivia’s Evo Morales, as well...

In the United States, a Republican presidential candidate who avoids those terms – someone who doesn’t gloss every speech with talk of shining cities on hills – is like a baker who doesn’t use flour. Trump also rarely talks about “left” and “right” and those movements’ foot soldiers, “liberals” and “conservatives”. Odd, isn’t it? Left and right are the defining concepts of American...

    Mark Levin and others are pressuring the state legislatures to call for a "Constitutional Convention," or "Convention of States," or "Assembly of States."

Here's how: The authorization for amending or changing the Constitution of the United States is found in Article V of the US Constitution. It is very short. Only one sentence. In fact, only the first two lines of that sentence are important, because in them, the Founding...

Not hyphenated Islam, not merely the familiar terms used by many writers like Islamic-Terrorism, or Islamic-Fundamentalism, but ISLAM, Islam itself. Full stop. That's not something that most people are comfortable with saying or even thinking, because (in the West) it seems to run counter to some core beliefs, and reminds us of seemingly similar formulations that have terrible dark history associated with them. However, these impressions, upon further examination, are incorrect. The formulation "Islam is the problem", or even does...

Other Chinese Church officials have said that he made his new statement under pressure.

    The European Union cannot rely on NATO to protect its member states from external threats and must develop a policy of collective defence that allows it to "act autonomously if and when necessary". EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini's Global Strategy document states that "as Europeans we must take greater responsibility for our security". The white paper, seen by Politico, adds: "While NATO exists to defend its members — most of which are European — from external attack, Europeans must be better equipped, trained and organised to contribute decisively to such collective efforts, as well as to act autonomously if...

    Plans for 'a closer European Union' have been branded an attempt to create a 'European superstate'. Germany's foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault today presented a proposal for closer EU integration based on three key areas - internal and external security, the migrant crisis, and economic cooperation. But the plans have been described as an 'ultimatum' in Poland, with claims it would mean countries transfer their armies, economic systems and border controls to the EU. Zaoralek added that the four eastern members had reservations about the proposed common security policy. Eastern members have become increasingly jittery...

    Senators on Tuesday rolled out a bipartisan bill aimed at stopping suspected terrorists from buying a gun, as lawmakers try to overcome a stalemate on the issue. "Essentially we believe that if you are too dangerous to fly on an airplane, you are too dangerous to buy a gun," Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) told reporters. The legislation would allow the attorney general to block the sale of a gun if an individual is on the "no-fly" list or the so-called "selectee" list, which requires additional screening at an airport. Collins said the two lists affect approximately 109,000 people, most...

    While the French were fighting for what turned out to be a false equality through government control, Americans were fighting to obtain and hold on to unrestricted opportunity and freedom from government control To today’s liberal leftists, equality means taking from those who have abundance and transferring it to those in lack. But it fails to factor in the economic consequences of this transfer of wealth. The abundance they are drawing from begins to shrink as economic development is stifled by government policies. Communism and socialism promise equality but bring equality of poverty except for a privileged government bureaucracy and...

    A staggering 87 percent of Venezuelans say they do not have money to buy enough food, the most recent assessment of living standards by Simón Bolívar University found. About 72 percent of monthly wages are being spent just to buy food, according to the Center for Documentation and Social Analysis, a research group associated with the Venezuelan Teachers Federation. In April, it found that a family would need the equivalent of 16 minimum-wage salaries to properly feed itself. Ask people in this city when the last time they ate a meal, and many will respond that it was not today....

    The documentary "Liberating a Continent" is a subtly provocative refutation of what our secularized elites believe about what truly drives history and how Christianity impacts the world. Next month, the Catholic world’s eyes will for one week focus on Poland, as millions of pilgrims will celebrate World Youth Day with Pope Francis. This is the perfect time to get to know the country’s Catholic heritage. The many contributions of Poland and its native son Pope St. John Paul II include unleashing a revolution of the spirit that showed that the Soviet empire was based on an anthropological lie.
