    TruNews ^ | Dec 12, 2017 | Rick Wiles
    In a letter Monday to Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairwoman Kristine Svinicki, Senate Environment & Public Works Committee Chairman John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) is demanding an explanation for how U.S. uranium left the country after the Uranium One deal. The senator, who represents the home state of three of the company’s uranium recovery facilities, said he registered “strong concerns” about the 2010 deal with President Barack Obama. He said he now believes the response he received, and the “process” through which he received it, were “misleading.” He notes that in March of 2011, then-NRC Chairman Greg Jaczko...

    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is so powerful that he can control nature, the country’s government-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun claims. In an article detailing Kim Jong Un’s recent visit to Mt. Paektu over the weekend, the newspaper claims that he stopped a blizzard and brought about “fine weather” as he “ascended” hiking "through thick snow" to the 9,000-foot peak of the mountain. “When Kim Jong Un ascended to the top of it, going through thick snow, it showed fine weather unprecedented in the blizzard of December winter, exposing its majestic figure,” the newspaper reads. The newspaper calls Kim Jong...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 12/12/2017 | J Hines
    A judge on Dec. 8 released graphic video showing Daniel Shaver crawling on his hands and knees and begging for his life before he was shot and killed. The shooting, by Philip “Mitch” Brailsford, then an officer with the Mesa Police Department, occurred after officers responded to a call about a man allegedly pointing a rifle out of a fifth-floor window at a La Quinta Inn. The graphic video, which was released after a jury on Thursday acquitted the officer of murder and manslaughter charges, stoked outrage on social media and renewed calls for reforms in law enforcement. See the...
  • Sexual Harassment: A Water Cooler Discussion

    In light of all the recent 'allegations', a kind of water cooler discussion started at my workplace among the men in particular. How far beyond politics is this going to go? Today, we have a young woman here who for the 2nd day in a row, is wearing VERY provocative clothing. We're talking "no-man-is-looking-at-her-face" type clothing. If continued unchecked, this woman will probably find herself propositioned or worse somewhere around the work place. Being a not so young man, this is not the first time I've seen women dressing/behaving like this is the work place, and yes, there are dress...
  • Narcissist Gov. Jerry Brown’s Diversions From Responsibility

    CA Gov. Jerry Brown’s War Against the Truth All Hell is breaking loose in California as residents are being burned out of their homes, neighborhoods and businesses, while Gov. Jerry Brown is jetting around the world spouting climate change propaganda. He calls this California’s ‘new normal.’ “With climate change, some scientists are saying Southern California is literally burning up, and burning up as maybe a metaphor or a description not just to the fires right here, but what we can expect over the next years and decades,” Brown said. I say ‘propaganda’ because Brown loves to cloak himself in false...

    Bangladeshi jihadist Akayed Ullah used family ties to get here A would-be Muslim suicide bomber’s attempt to kill morning rush hour commuters in Manhattan yesterday is throwing much-needed light on our disastrous “chain migration” immigration system that admits foreigners based merely on family connections. Around 7:20 Monday morning what police called “an improvised, low-tech” pipe-bomb style device detonated prematurely while strapped to the body of jihadist immigrant and Brooklyn resident Akayed Ullah, 27, in a subway passageway between Times Square and the Port Authority, a massive bus terminal, in Manhattan. Another unexploded device was found on his person. As a...

    Trump did the right thing in withdrawing the United States from this latest example of the UN globalists' efforts to chip away at national sovereignty. The Trump administration has decided to withdraw from participation in the United Nations Global Compact on Migration, representing another significant departure from the global governance policies of the Obama administration. In September 2016, during the waning days of the Obama administration, the United States had joined with the other member states of the UN to adopt a “non-binding “political declaration, the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants. They agreed to undertake negotiations towards a...

    Wall Street Journal Op ^ | 12-8-2017 | Jillian Kay Melchior
    The experience of being an outsider is central to the poetry of Audre Lorde. So it’s curious that Lorde, who died in 1992, has posthumously become the ultimate insider on American campuses, providing an ideological foundation for today’s social-justice warriors. It’s hard to overstate Lorde’s influence. ....... (snip) More fundamentally, higher education is obsessed with “intersectionality.” Lorde didn’t invent the idea, but her adherents believe she embodies it. The theory supposes that different forms of discrimination act together to compound oppression. Lorde, who was black and lesbian, claimed to write from the perspective of “those of us who have been...

    The commie Left has TOTALLY overplayed its hand on this "sexual harasser" circus. They've FLOODED us with this crap, nonstop, and we're SICK to the gills of it. We knew from the start where this was intended to go: our President. We knew from the start it wouldn't stick to him, but NOW we REALLY know it, because they've also made us sick of it with their too-stupid-by-double scheme. WAY TO GO, GOD-HATING COMMIES! MAGA, baby!

    This sounds as surreal as it gets, but unfortunately, this is the world we live in. Today’s news is about a school teacher who lost his job for the crime of “misgendering”. Yest, that’s a real word used by the politically correct social justice warriors nowadays. The crime, you asked? Well, this is a math teacher, 27 year old Joshua Sutcliffe, who made the fatal mistake of saying “well done girls” to a group of his pupils, after presumably they did good on a test or something. The problem is that among the group of girls was a special girl...

    The Rule of Law has become the Rule of Man, and when that happens, it's normally not very long before the people begin dancing around a golden calf The Christian Baker who refused to bake a cake with a homosexual wedding message on it lost everything. The business is gone. They went bankrupt. The court case, however, lives on, and The United States Supreme Court has heard the oral arguments on it. This is dangerous. I am not excited when the federal government, especially the courts, begins to stick their fingers into issues regarding our rights. In fact, the Constitution...

While the choice of ceremony might seem odd to most couples, gun-themed weddings appear to be becoming increasingly popular.

    Before this egregious epidemic goes further and the Democrats among us continue to spit on the Constitution they loathe, some grown-up should step forward and speak up for due process It’s become de rigeur for public figures and media personalities to repeat the tired mantra: Always believe the women. This refers, of course, to any accusation of sexual harassment, no matter how far in the past it took place and even if it was interpreted at the time as innocent flirting. Leftists seized on the harassment lawsuits that took place at the Fox News Network last year, when Andrea Tantaros,...

    Security Council became a kangaroo court, turning a perverted version of “international law” against the Trump administration for its just defense of the Jewish state of Israel and Israel's right to choose its own capital On December 6th, President Trump announced his decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to instruct the State Department to begin the process of relocating the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Two days later, at a special meeting of the United Nations Security Council, the other 14 members of the Council, including U.S. allies such as France, the United...

    Everyday Feminism ^ | December 8, 2017 | Lara Witt
    As a queer femme of color, I keep close relationships with people who go beyond allyship; they’re true accomplices in the fight against white supremacy, queerphobia, and misogyny. If you’re not going to support marginalized folks, then we can’t be friends, let alone date. The personal is political. Beyond the lovely cushioning, happiness and support that we receive from our platonic relationships (which are, in all honesty, soul-feeding and essential), feminists also date! But there are questions we have to ask before we get close to someone.

Trump's principled decision follows United States policy adopted since 1995 Media falsely discredit Trump as he confronts UN on Jerusalem The media has discredited President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital -falsely claiming the President has reversed nearly seven decades of American foreign policy. Trump’s decision has pitted America squarely against the United Nations.

    Once again, you called it right, President Trump! The truth FINALLY got its pants back on Friday while mainstream media liars were caught flashing their dirty undies at the masses, their lies having already traveled halfway around the world. This time, the odious stench of burning coming from CNN, CBS, MSNBC and the far more cunning Washington Post, all of whose pants were on fire, went viral. With most attention riveted on Liar King CNN, CBS and MSNBC came jumping, flames and all, into the lie pit‚Äîallowing the WaPo’s David Weigel to almost wiggle out of his lies.

    Let's begin with some accusations. They are well founded and as credible as any against Roy Moore – perhaps more so. The FBI's first director, J. Edgar Hoover, was reputed to have compiled incriminating dossiers on just about every top office-holder in Washington, D.C., up to and including the presidents, under several of whose tenures Hoover served. Whenever there was talk of firing him, Hoover reportedly met with the contemporary chief of state and persuaded him to retain him (Hoover) in his post. Regarding President Kennedy, there was surely a great deal in the dossier, especially as concerned his scandalous...
