    In the wake of an attack against Muslims at a London Mosque, the British Establishment has resorted to a level of chaos and idiocy that failed to appear when terrorist attacked were carried out BY Muslims. For those of a more conspiratorial bent, it might suggest who is truly in charge of the British government is not, in fact, the placemen and women we see sat on the front benches in Westminster. The first clue was from Labour Party Shadow Home Secretary, Dianne Abbott, who referred to the three prior terrorist attacks as “incidents” and the one attack on Muslims...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Christie Whitman is warning that President Donald Trump's "unprecedented" proposed budget cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency, which she used to run, pose a "great danger to Americans' lives." Whitman, a Republican who served as governor from 1994 to 2001, made the declarations in an op-ed she wrote that was published by The Atlantic magazine on Friday. "Practically speaking, funding for climate-change research would be axed, public-health programs would be effectively defunded, state environmental programs would be closed, and regional projects would end," Whitman writes. "Make no mistake: Human health would be endangered." Among her many...

    New York Times ^ | March 24, 2017 | by David Brooks
    Legislation can be crafted bottom up or top down. In bottom up you ask, What problems do voters have and how can they be addressed. In top down, you ask, What problems do elite politicians have and how can they be addressed? The House Republican health care bill is a pure top-down document. It was not molded to the actual health care needs of regular voters. It does not have support from actual American voters or much interest in those voters. It was written by elites to serve the needs of elites. Donald Trump vowed to drain the swamp, but...

    It is becoming obvious. The powers that be do not follow sharply delineated lines. The oligarchy running this country come from all sectors of society...liberals, leftists, GOPe folks, conservatives pretending to be for what is right and many of the ultra rich. It's all about money and the love of money. We, the people, want for things to be done with righteousness and justice. The oligarchy really cares nothing for those principles, but rather, wants to make sure the channels of income keep flowing. The Trump administration is the only entity in this nation actually trying to do things which...
  • Press coverage of Trump in first month of office: 88 percent ‘hostile,’ says new study

    The Washington Times ^ | 03/02/2017 | Jennifer Harper
    There was no press honeymoon for President Trump during his first month in office. A meticulous new study by the Media Research Center finds that 88 percent of the broadcast news coverage of Mr. Trump and his team was “hostile” during the first 30 days of office. The coverage was intense and plentiful. The study, which analyzed both tone and content for evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS, found that the “Big Three” networks produced 16 hours of coverage on the new president and his staff. That is over half — 54 percent — of their total coverage for...
  • Tom Cotton: ‘The Powerful and Elite Reap the Benefits of a Constant Influx of Low-Skill Labor’

    Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton responded to New York Times columnist David Brooks over his claims that curbing mass immigration would cripple the U.S., tweeting that an influx of low-skilled labor hurts the employment prospects of young Americans, minorities, and established immigrants. Cotton has sponsored a bill cutting annual immigration flows into the U.S. by half, by limiting entry to 500,000 foreign workers each years. It’s a popular position for a wide swath of voters: 54 percent want immigration halved or reduced to zero, including 22 percent who want a total moratorium. That includes 68 percent of Republicans and 45...
  • With #FakeNews, the MSM Has Created the Perfect Protection Racket for the Liberal Elite

    Circling the wagons was a protective measure used to keep the enemy outside the circle while protecting those inside. The purposeful creation of “#FakeNews” is exactly this. Designed to forever keep “unwanted opinion” and those who speak against the Establishment on the outside. The media protecting the politician and the politicians protecting the friendly media in an never ending loop. Who is left outside? Us, the enemy. The outsiders are everyone who disagrees with their ideas, opinions and ideologies; and those that want change that isn’t begged from the shallow pits of the Globalists. If you’re not onboard with the...

    Peak Prosperity ^ | 1-29-2017 | Chris Martenson
    For over 10 years now, we've been openly advocating that folks take action to become more prepared should crisis arrive. And for a long time, this advice relegated us to being labeled "tin-foil hat doomsday preppers" (and other less-polite monikers). The media just couldn't figure out any other box to put us in. But now, the concept of taking at least some responsibility for your own future well-being by increasing your self-reliance is finally moving towards the mainstream. Of course, government agencies have long ascribed to "situational planning" in case sudden unrest were to happen. Nations around the world have...

    From plush penthouse apartments on the Upper East Side to bars in midtown Manhattan, New York’s financial community watched in stunned dismay on Wednesday as Republican Donald Trump clinched the White House. An early party mood quickly soured as donors and supporters of Hillary Clinton realized that the Democratic candidate, Wall Street's preferred choice because she represented the status quo, had lost. Many were stuck for words. “Not really much to say,” said Marc Lasry, a billionaire credit investor.

    Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- The current aristocracy in America came to power in the 1960’s.  It was a major shift in the power elite, away from the military, captains of industry, and religious leaders.It became heavily concentrated in media elites, educators, bureaucrats and lawyers.  It was a deliberate infiltration of institutions and the seizure of power from the people and the states; concentrating it in unelected and unaccountable institutions.The rise of network TV, the fairness doctrine imposed by the FCC, and the takeover of virtually all national media by doctrinaire “progressives” meant that the “progressive” gatekeepers in the media decided who...
  • Why Is Barack Obama Threatening Russia With World War III Right Before The Election?

    It sure seems like an odd time to be provoking a war with Russia. As I write this, we stand just a little bit more than three weeks away from one of the most pivotal elections in U.S. history, and Barack Obama has chosen this moment to strongly threaten the Russians. As I wrote about on Friday, Reuters is reporting that Obama is contemplating “direct U.S. military action” against Syrian military targets, and the Russians have already indicated that any assault on Syrian forces would be considered an attack on themselves. The rapidly deteriorating crisis in Syria has already caused...

    People walk in front of the United Nations Headquarters in New York July 31, 2008. Prominent theologians and scholars are saying this week that while globalism may be a buzzword this election season, too few understand the demonic forces driving this ideology. As The New York Times reported Monday, until relatively recently it was rare to hear people referred to as "globalists" but the label is more common now. And while many globalists claim to have the interests of the entire world at heart, the irony is that they have become a tribe of sorts; and they are a...

    PROVINCETOWN, Mass. — It was a very busy, very lucrative weekend for Hillary Clinton in the summer playground of the East Coast's moneyed elite. She brunched with wealthy backers at a seaside estate in Nantucket, snacking on shrimp dumplings and crabcakes. A few hours later, she and her husband dined with an intimate party of thirty at a secluded Martha's Vineyard estate. And on Sunday afternoon, she joined the singer Cher at a "LGBT summer celebration" on the far reaches of Cape Cod. By Sunday evening, Clinton had spoken to more than 2,200 campaign donors. But what she told the...

    In a sense, these revolving-door apparatchiks and incestuous couples are bullies, who use their megaphones to disparage others who are supposedly blinkered and ignorant to the point of not believing that a videomaker caused the attacks in Libya, not trusting the Iranians, being skeptical about the theory of sanctuary cities, missing the genius of the European Union, not seeing the brilliant logic in allowing in 12 million immigrants from southern Mexico and Central America under unlawful auspices, panicking about $20 trillion in debt, and incapable of appreciating the wonders of outsourcing. In matters of deception, ostentatious vulgarity never proves as...

    Especially influential are the revolving-door multimillionaires, especially from big banks and Wall Street — the Tim Geithners, Jack Lews, Hank Paulsons, and Robert Rubins, but also the lesser flunkies of the Freddie/Fannie Clintonite crowd, a Franklin Raines (raking in $90 million) or a Jamie Gorelick ($26 million), all of whom came into the White House and its bureaucracies to get rich, but who always seem shocked when the public does not like their incestuous trails of bailouts, relief plans, favorable regulations, etc. Creepy too are the satellite grifters like “investment banker” Rahm Emanuel — who somehow, between the White House...

    Which is why the elite don't see what the problem is To listen to the howling and wailing from the political and media elites, you’d think the British people were forcing their government to close all the hospitals and burn all the schools down. The reaction to Britain’s exit from the European Union has been that over-the-top hysterical. The British Empire survived for many centuries before anyone ever conceived of the EU – which was only established in 1993 – and I think it can probably do just fine once again not being a member of it. But you’d never...

Hillary Clinton insists she isn’t “well-off” and now daughter Chelsea says she couldn’t care less about money. “I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t,” she told UK’s The Telegraph, explaining why she gave up lucrative gigs to join her family’s philanthropic...
