    US Defense Watch ^ | September 26, 2016 | Ray Starmann
    We’re living in America 180, where good old American common sense has been thrown out the window and replaced by political correctness, militant feminism and cultural Marxism. The wimps and freaks and the loonies are running the country. Two stories this morning solidified the true nature of the craziness being pushed on the nation by the militant left: The first story was titled, “Parenting Magazine warns Blond, Cheerful Families Dangerous, Probably Right Wing.” Parenting magazine Baby & Family has told readers to beware of families who are “inconspicuous” and “cheerful”, as these warning signs indicate they are right wing and...

    President Obama will surely put his best spin on his legacy Tuesday in his eighth and final speech to the United Nations General Assembly. But even his biggest fans must struggle to ignore the spread of mayhem on his watch, in the Mideast and beyond. The president is likely to highlight his oh-so-historic diplomacy, from that (toothless) global climate agreement to the improvement, such as it is, in the world’s economy. Plus, of course, the nuke agreement with Iran and the opening to Cuba. So how fitting that as Obama speaks in New York, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will be...

    Recent polls disclose that the US media has attained a new status: Americans' trust in these lying sacks of excrement has fallen to a low level even a radical conservative such as this citizen believed impossible. Which brings me to TV news generally, MSNBC in particular and Mika Brezinski specifically. MSNBC is a veritable plethora of pro-left agitprop (propaganda aimed at causing agitation) while presenting a cornucopia of anti-Constitutional, anti-faith, anti-conservative vitriol. But back to Ms. Brezinski. With Lawrence O'Donnell, Rachael Maddow and others from which to choose, why Brezinski? Because this old radical conservative still has a memory and...

Turns out old Larry, like Bill Clinton and many other left leaning double dome "experts", was a RHODES SCHOLAR! Jefferson must be whirling in his grave up the hill there in Charlottesville! Don't have bandwidth to explore that here but if YOU want to explore the Marxist roots of where we find ourselves today, pick up a copy of "Tragedy and Hope" (available several on-line sellers)) by Bill Clinton's old chum and...

    While everyone is talking about Creepy Uncle Joe Biden taking over for Hillary if she’s too unfit (or dead) to continue in the presidential race, here’s someone most people probably didn’t consider: Michelle Obama. After you get over your initial disgust at the mere thought, think about it for a second and it actually starts to make sense. First, you have the fact that Obama is constantly lamenting term limits and how much he doesn’t want to leave the White House. Hillary is (was?) running as Obama’s third term… If Michelle steps in now, it will be. Second, if you...

    In Medieval times, Kings and Queens interested in maintaining control over small, outlying geographical areas arranged a complex system of fiefdoms, vesting feudal lords with their imprimatur to tell the local serfs and vassals what to do, and granting them the “power” to extract taxes – a portion of which would be given to the royals. Despite Constitutional strictures created to insure the contrary, the United States federal government has followed pretty much the same template, albeit on a bureaucratic, rather than monarchical, level. Case in point, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which is showing once more that it is...

    Would Hillary Clinton’s critics love her if she was a man? The gameplan of Democrats and liberal pundits this campaign season has been disrupted – mostly to their benefit – by Donald Trump; win or lose, Trump is the dominant storyline of the 2016 election. But as we head into the fall stretch run, the preferred narrative of Hillary Clinton’s partisans for 2016 and beyond is re-emerging: that she is Women and any opposition to her is opposition to Women. The latest entrant in this narrative – though by no means the first – comes from Peter Beinart at The...

    BPR presented audio and visual proof exposing the shocking training a network of taxpayer-funded American schools gave its teachers to kick off the 2016-2017 school year. 2,100 teachers from 49 schools met in Brooklyn, New York on August 10, for the training. The pro-communist, anti-cop, anti-American, pro-Black Lives Matter message was drilled into the staff of the combined schools, according to the teacher. To kick it off, all teachers were given a T-shirt with a quote from Che Guevara, the man with the Marxist plan for Argentina, who said “The true Revolution is guided by a great feeling of love.”...

    How many people have to die before the world, including many Americans, realizes that socialism never works, always fails, and kills people? Look at the unspeakable tragedies that continue to unfold in Venezuela right now. People are scrambling just to get food to eat. Armed guards have to protect stores and trucks with food from being looted. Stories are emerging of people eating zoo animals and of Venezuelans feeling less safe than war-torn Syrians. The amazing thing about this tragedy is just how avoidable it is. But it’s almost as if each generation in the last 150 years has to...

But as people, wouldn’t we all benefit from trying to empathize with people we disagree with?

ECU reported a 16 percent increase in student counseling appointments in the past two years.

Trump’s speech at the annual “Roast and Ride” fundraiser for Republican Sen. Joni Ernst came just hours after Clinton received her first national security briefing as the Democratic presidential nominee.

Tolerance should be a two-way street, but in America it only goes one direction since it has become a weapon of Marxists. They will tolerate nearly any behavior or thought as long as it promotes their agenda.

In this context, Trump has more in common with our founders, also "citizen" politicians, then any political class Republican presidential candidate since our founding.

    Pregnant women, children and even elderly Venezuelans crossed into Colombia on Sunday after the border was temporarily reopened, allowing them to buy basic foods and toiletries -- rare commodities in their home country. Tearful Venezuelans had gone weeks without basic food items like milk, flour and toilet paper. It's a sad but common part of daily life today in crisis-ridden Venezuela, a country that has the world's largest proven reserves of oil. Colombian officials estimate that about 100,000 Venezuelans crossed the border. Venezuela is expected to dive deeper into the abyss this year, according to new projections published Wednesday by...

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...

The rodent was known to have lived only on Bramble Cay, a minuscule atoll in the northeast Torres Strait, between the Cape York Peninsula in the Australian state of Queensland and the southern shores of Papua New Guinea. The long-tailed, whiskered creature, called the Bramble Cay melomys, was considered the only mammal endemic to the Great Barrier...

    Hamburg, Germany — WE Germans can never escape the trauma of our recent history. That has rarely been clearer than today, as we look around our Continent and across the Atlantic. There are almost too many differences to mention between what happened in the 1930s over here and what is going on today. And it goes without saying that Donald J. Trump and Austria’s Norbert Hofer are not Adolf Hitler. Still, Germany’s slide into a popular embrace of authoritarianism in the 1930s offers a frame for understanding how liberal democracies can suddenly turn toward anti-liberalism.

    When Australia's most successful Olympian, Ian Thorpe, came out as gay in an interview with Sir Michael Parkinson in July 2014, he was inundated with messages of support. At the time, some posed the question: does this even count as news? Is homosexuality today not a simple biographical detail rather than a sensational scandal? And yet, it is significant that on the same night that Thorpe came out, Australian Rules Football commentator Brian Taylor used a homophobic slur on air, referring to Geelong player Harry Taylor as a "big poofter." The two events accentuated perfectly why it remains the case,...

Katarzyna Tokarska, a PhD student at the university, is the lead author of a new paper titled "The climate response to five trillion tonnes of carbon". Previous modelling, including those used by the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, use projections that assume just two trillion tonnes of carbon would be released.

    The Lee Amendment to defund President Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) regulation failed in the Senate yesterday because not enough Republicans backed it. The Amendment was tabled by a vote of 60-37. Jeremy Carl aptly describes this vote as a defeat for conservatism, community control, and common sense. It is a victory, as Carl says, for turning the federal government into a National Zoning board, forcing high density housing on unwilling cities and towns, and letting bureaucrats decide the racial, ethnic and income balance of local communities.

    Right now, thousands of people are taking direct action as part of a global wave of protests against the biggest fossil fuel infrastructure projects across the world. With so many governments still dependent on a fossil fuel economy, they can't be relied upon to make the radical change required in the time we need to make it. It is unjust that corporations and governments can commit crimes against the planet and society without retribution. And if we really want climate justice, protest in the pursuit of this must be normalized. To overcome political barriers, we need to reclaim our power...

    My understanding of gender has been both clarified and fortified by this project. Gender is an identity we are given or assume based on an antiquated societal structure which is then reinforced by that society. It is an idea which we take for fact. I suppose I have always felt somewhat awkward in my female gender because I identify with so many ‘male’ characteristics. I feel more comfortable now than before and embrace more wholly both sides without suspicion. The discussions I’ve had with Alison MacNeil have informed a lot of what I thought I knew about gender and identity....

    Imagine if everyone was guaranteed healthcare and an income floor. People would still pursue their calling in life. In fact, they could do so more freely with more creativity and daring without the fear of not making ends meet. It would unleash the enormous creative potential that lays dormant within the hearts and minds of so many office workers, toiling away as their best ideas and dreams wither away.

    As a Western revolutionary, Obama has been relentless in his efforts over the last seven years to use all the machinery and influence of government, whether illegally (Since 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court has unanimously ruled 13 times that Obama’s actions have been unconstitutional) or legally, to fundamentally transform America into the neo-Marxist democracy he and his father have long dreamed about. His most recent stunt to this end is to use North Carolina’s “bathroom” law or House Bill 2 as a springboard for the U.S. Justice Department to issue a sweeping dictate in the name of social fairness and...

    Citizens turned out in massive crowds to add their signatures to the recall referendum against Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro. And for good reason. The country is in a state of paralysis: frequent blackouts; food, medicine and vaccine scarcities; closed-down factories and frequent looting. Chaos and anarchy hang over the nation that not so long ago was the most rich and advanced in Latin America. Without a doubt the fault of the country's dire situation is on the late president Hugo Chávez. His socialist policies devastated Venezuela's flourishing economy. But in a less obvious way, Venezuelan citizens are also to blame....

    US Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. wants colleges to stop asking applicants about their criminal histories early in the admissions process. Because a disproportionate number of people who have been charged with crimes are people of color, the U.S. Department of Education says, these questions increase the barriers disadvantaged students face when seeking an education. “We believe in second chances and we believe in fairness,” King said in a statement. “We must ensure that more people ... have the chance at higher education opportunities.” The Department of Education is sending a guide, called “Beyond the Box,” with suggestions...

    Although the ferocity of the Never Trump protests has diminished-in tandem with the Great Red Hope’s impending demise-that doesn’t mean the regressive left has quietly retired from the public sphere. A slightly more sedate Communist rally was held last Sunday within Union Square to commemorate what I like to call fascist Christmas. As usual, Pamela Hall documented the annual parade of economic and historical illiteracy for The Silent Majority No More.Read it and weep-for the future.

    In 2005, the Fort Trumbull area of New London Connecticut was a growing middle class neighborhood. The people there were hard working and spent much of their lives building their homes and living out prosperous lives. That came to an end in 2000 when Liberal Fascist Democrats in City hall and in the state capitol of Hartford made a deal with Pfizer corporation to allow them to build a research laboratory and upscale housing in Fort Trumbull. According to estimates by the same lying fascists, over 5000 new jobs would be created. Connecticut was one of the states hardest hit...
