Perhaps if the government demanded less (coercively), people would give more voluntarily.
Health care. Education. Among others, these goods have been considered so important that most current governments make a huge effort to provide them to people with inadequate incomes. Surely, it would be crazy to deny how important these goods are.
In a 2016 survey conducted by Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) titled “The 2016 US Trust Study of High Net Worth Philanthropy,”We will set here a premise: Private entities sponsored by charity are normally more effective than public entities. Read More
Has a war between the United States and Iran become inevitable? That is what some in the mainstream media seem to be claiming, but let us hope that is not true, because such a war would mean immense death and destruction. If the Iranian regime felt that their survival was at stake, they would throw everything in their entire arsenal at the United States and Israel, and they would unleash Hezbollah to commit horrific acts of terror all over the globe. That would include acts of terror inside the United States, and most Americans have absolutely no idea how nightmarish it would be to have Hezbollah terrorists striking soft targets all across the country. And in order to quickly win a war against Iran, the U.S. would probably have to use nuclear weapons, and that is a line that we do not want to cross. Read More
07.18.19- A Bankrupt System Demands Depopulation
On July 16, German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen was elected by a very narrow margin to be the new president of the European Commission. As part of the process of garnering the necessary votes among the totally fractious European Parliament, she delivered a hair- raising speech promoting the British Empire’s long-standing policy of Green fascism intended to massively depopulate the planet. Read More
There seems to be an unwritten rule with lawmakers that, every time they create a terrible piece of legislation, they give it the most noble-sounding name.
The USA PATRIOT Act from 2001 was a great example. It sounds great. Who wouldn’t love a law named for Patriots?
And yet that was easily among the most freedom-killing laws ever passed in US history, giving the federal government nearly unlimited authority to wage war and spy on its own people. Read More
The United States of America seems to have a suicide wish as it wanders aimlessly down a continually narrowing path that can only lead to national ruin. Is this a premeditated act of self-annihilation or simply a series of foolish choices?
Before a nation can be effectively destroyed from within it is necessary first that it be owned lock, stock and barrel. An independent, freedom-loving people are less easily controlled than one that is effectively ball and chained, which brings us to the first step in the program. Read More
07.15.19- If You Use Social Media You Support the Gestapo Police State
Americans, being an insouciant people, are unaware and unconcerned that their addiction to social media supports the Gestapo Police State. Both Twitter and Facebook are mechanisms by which the police state imposes censorship on Americans and casts aside the First Amendment. Social media is also used to isolate truth-tellers and to disappear dissidents who expose the official lies used to control people by controlling the explanations that they receive. Read More
False hope breeds crippling apathy – This is what I have to think to myself when I see the news media fervor over the second arrest of billionaire Jefferey Epstein, or similar events which in most cases end up fading into the background and forgotten. The public's favorite distraction has always been to watch high profile people kicked out of their castles in the clouds, but I would point out that even when the globalists sacrifice one of their own in the public eye it is usually only to satiate the masses and their hunger for justice for a very short time. The system is not designed to root out evil; it is designed to obscure and perpetuate evil. Read More
07.12.19- And Now, for Something Entirely Different: The Difference
According to the latest NPR-IBM Watson Health poll, “42% of those polled said they were angrier in the past year.”
Most of us think we are better than average. We believe others are getting even angrier than we are: “Some 84% of people surveyed said Americans are angrier today compared with a generation ago.” Read More

07.09.19- A Breakdown of the Universe
YOUGHAL, IRELAND – A remarkable thing happened on Sunday. A strange spacecraft appeared, hovering over our yard.
Navy pilots have been reporting encounters with “unidentified objects” for months. It was inevitable, we suppose, that one would come in for a closer look. Here’s The New York Times:
The genetically engineered food experiment began in the mid-1990s and continues unabated to this day, with Bayer recently taking over Monsanto and pumping billions of dollars into its new American GMO division.
But while the GMO food experiment has been highly profitable for the lab technicians who created it, as well as the toxic, synthetic pesticide industry, the question of what it’s doing to our bodies, specifically our internal organs, remains etched in the minds of independent researchers who have studied the crops extensively (GMOs do not undergo safety testing past 90 days and many studies are funded by the industry).

No matter how many things are wrong with this nation, Independence Day is not a time for cynicism and pessimism.
Celebrate America, and celebrate it hard.
Because the 4th of July is NOT about supporting this government or blind patriotism.
Independence Day is about the rebel American spirit that gave a big middle finger to the government oppressors. Read More
07.04.19- On How To Truly 'MAGA'
There are two kinds of ignoramuses in this world:
A. The ignoramuses who don’t know what is going on in this world, and who know that they don’t know. This group is relatively harmless and they are not the great wrong-doers of this world, because they know that they don’t know a great many things, and so they keep their mouths shut.
B. The ignoramuses who don’t know what is going on in this world, but who don’t know that they don’t know. This group is terribly dangerous, as in the old saying: “Fools rush in where wise men fear to tread.” Read More
07.03.19- It’s Time to Declare Your Independence from Tyranny, America
For too long now, we have suffered the injustices of a government that has no regard for our rights or our humanity.
Too easily pacified and placated by the pomp and pageantry of manufactured spectacles (fireworks on the Fourth of July, military parades, ritualized elections, etc.) that are a poor substitute for a representative government that respects the rights of its people, the American people have opted, time and again, to overlook the government’s excesses, abuses and power grabs that fly in the face of every principle for which America’s founders risked their lives.
We have done this to ourselves. Read More
The CFTC and the DOJ couldn’t find anything wrong…but now each can recite chapter and verse about all the wrongdoing…
Yesterday, the Department of Justice and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission announced yet another settlement, both criminal and civil, for “spoofing” and market manipulation in COMEX precious metals, this time against Merrill Lynch, a unit of Bank of America. The infractions occurred hundreds of times starting at least in 2008 and continuing through 2014. While Merrill Lynch and Bank America settled criminal charges via a deferred prosecution agreement and a $25 million fine, separate criminal charges are pending against a number of former individual traders.

07.01.19- The Iranian People Are Not Our Enemy
Writing for The American Conservative.com, Daniel Larison penned an excellent article entitled The Iranian People Are Not Our Enemy. Yes, I liked the title so much, I borrowed it for this column. Larison quotes Ardeshir Zahedi and Ali Vaez in an op-ed piece for the Washington Post. Zahedi is Iran’s former foreign minister (1966-1971) and ambassador to England (1962-1966) and the United States (1960-1962 and 1973-1979). Vaez is the International Crisis Group’s Iran project director, based in Washington. Read More
06.29.19- Facing Extinction
“The heavens were all on fire; the earth did tremble.”
For much of my life, I thought our species would soon go extinct. I assumed we might last another hundred years if we were lucky. Now I suspect we are facing extinction in the near future. Can I speculate as to exactly when that might happen? Of course not. My sense of this is based only on probability. It might be similar to hearing about a diagnosis of late stage pancreatic cancer. Is it definite that the person is going to die soon? No, not definite. Is it highly probable?One would be wise to face the likelihood and put one’s affairs in order. Read More
06.28.19- Memo to Trump: Trade Bolton for Tulsi
“For too long our leaders have failed us, taking us into one regime change war after the next, leading us into a new Cold War and arms race, costing us trillions of our hard-earned tax payer dollars and countless lives. This insanity must end.”
Donald Trump, circa 2016?
Nope. That denunciation of John Bolton interventionism came from Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii during Wednesday night’s debate. At 38, she was the youngest candidate on stage. Read More
Conservatives have many ideological complaints about the current public education system: the way it indoctrinates their children, the way it teaches them history, the way it institutionalizes them. Their most recent issue (which, arguably, many liberal parents have a problem with, too) is over the federal government’s mandate that a transgender boy at a Chicago-area school be given full access to a girls’ locker room.

06.26.19- How to Become a Federal Criminal
Mike Chase, author of the excellent Twitter feed @CrimeADay, has now written the illustrated handbook, How to Become a Federal Criminal. In truth, a handbook wasn’t necessary because it is very easy to become a federal criminal.
You may know that you are required to report if you are traveling to or from the United States with $10,000 or more in cash. Don’t hop over the Canadian border to buy a used car, for example, or the Feds may confiscate your cash .Read More

If you are reading this, it’s most likely the result of a series of events in your life which have drawn your interest and attention to the fact that our world is quite a bit different from what we’ve been told by our school teachers, by the news media, by Hollywood, and by politicians.

“The Constitution as written, not the personal views of judges, should guide how the American people express their religious faith in the public square.” ~ Emilie Kao, Director of the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society
A fine blow was struck for religious freedom, when the United States Supreme Court handed down a 7 to 2 landmark victory in the case of the American Legion v. the American Humanist Organization, on June 20th 2019, as the majority opinion determined that the Peace Cross on public land in Bladensburg, Maryland, just outside of D.C., does not violate the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The forty foot tall Peace Cross commemorating forty-nine of Prince George’s County men who died fighting in WWI can now remain on public land, property of the State of Maryland. Read More

New regulations ban advertisements with gender stereotypes “that are likely to cause harm, or serious or widespread offence.” Read More
How do you persuade a populace to embrace totalitarianism, that goose-stepping form of tyranny in which the government has all of the power and “we the people” have none?
You persuade the people that the menace they face (imaginary or not) is so sinister, so overwhelming, so fearsome that the only way to surmount the danger is by empowering the government to take all necessary steps to quash it, even if that means allowing government jackboots to trample all over the Constitution.

06.20.19- America- Dumb, Dumber, and Dumbest
I’m taking the gloves completely off here. I’ve inferred that Americans collectively are pretty gullible and naive. I’ve invoked comparisons to Mike Judge’s movie Idiocracy. But it’s time to simply tell it like it is: the majority of present-day Americans are stupid beyond belief.
This doesn’t include all the increasing number of “awake” people out there, but it certainly does include the newly coined “woke” folk, who seem to be sleeping more soundly than the average American dupe. Ironically, a lot of these “woke” Americans are “mad as hell” but their anger is focused exclusively on Donald Trump. Read More
The system is broken, and the managerial elite will keep it broken because it serves their interests to keep it broken.
America's managerial elite came to do good and stayed to do well--at the expense of everyone beneath them. Now that they've entrenched themselves at the top of the status quo, there's no way to dislodge them, even as their failure to address what's broken, much less actually fix what's broken, insures systemic breakdown.

06.18.19- The Truth Versus Your Truth
06.17.19- Are You Delusional?
I’d like to address some aspects of the Greater Depression in this essay.
I’m here to tell you that the inevitable became reality in 2008. We’ve had an interlude over the last few years financed by trillions of new currency units.
However, the economic clock on the wall is reading the same time as it was in 2007, and the Black Horsemen of your worst financial nightmares are about to again crash through the doors and end the party. And this time, they won’t be riding children’s ponies, but armored Percherons. Read More
06.14.19- Boiling Frogs
The Boiling Frog Syndrome goes something like this: "If you throw a frog into a pot of boiling water, he will jump out. But if you place a frog into a pot of cold water and and turn the heat on low, it will float there quite placidly. As the water gradually heats up, the frog will sink into a tranquil stupor, exactly like one of us in a hot tub, and before long, with a smile on its face, it will unresistingly allow itself to be boiled to death. Now I'm not sure this really works with frogs, (I couldn't bring my self to find out), but I am certain that it works with people. I believe that we are all sitting in a big pot and the water is beginning to boil. Read More
“From my standpoint, I don’t even know why we have federal elected officials,” said Uvalde, Texas, Mayor Don McLaughlin in an exclusive interview with CR.
Uvalde, Texas, is a small town of 17,000 inhabitants, and they are now overrun by illegal immigrants and an international cartel smuggling operation. Uvalde is 40-60 miles from the border, but it might as well be right at the border. “We are in no man’s land. The state is not doing anything; the federal government is not doing anything,” said the mayor, who is begging the politicians to get involved. “We are getting nothing. I’ve lived here all my life and have never seen anything like this. The people in the communities are getting scared. What is coming that we don’t see? Who knows? People up north and in D.C. have no clue what is going on here. They don’t realize that these people are not being screened for diseases. We’re fed up.” Read More
06.12.19- How to Lose $21 Trillion
I sleep better at night knowing that ever-vigilant defense contractors and the politicians they’ve bought and paid for are making certain that America won’t be overrun by Communists, Islamic terrorists, or anyone else.
And I’m reassured by the fact that as an American taxpayer, I’m paying $435 for hammers and $640 for toilet seats. Sure, that’s more than I’d pay in a hardware store for these items. But we need to “support the troops.” Read More

When Google croaked over the weekend, a cascading tidal wave of web services came crashing down, including the Google cloud, Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and even portions of Amazon. Google owns the “Nest” brand which promises “smart home” functionality to control your home through a Google app on your mobile device. But during the outage, people were locked out of their smart homes… and many were unable to control home appliances such as air conditioners or lights. Read More
It is no coincidence that two days after the Trump administration announced a massive DOJ anti-trust investigation into Google, dozens of tech companies have been disrupted via sweeping internet outages that many are calling the “internet kill switch.”
Throughout the day today (Sunday), massive outages took down nearly all Google services (Gmail, Google, YouTube, Google Home, Google Hangouts etc.), and hard-hitting glitches hit all the following services, many of which are engaged in criminal activities that violate human rights and the freedom of speech in America: Read More
06.03.19- FEMA Camps of the Mind
I have a friend, his name is Vance Davis. At one time Vance Davis existed in the upper levels of power in the world. He was an NSA agent attached to NATO. Of all the people I have known, Vance reshaped my world view. I came to fully understand Steve Quayle’s admonition that one cannot solve the dilemma that has become the New World Order, with physical strategies. Physical strategies must be employed, however, as Steve states “this is a spiritual war above all else”. When Steve made that statement on my radio show, I knew he was correct because I heard the same from my father (1984-1986). And then came along, Vance Davis. Read More
Far from helping people access knowledge and facts, search engines like Google now push anti-knowledge — the opposite of knowledge — in order to keep people dumbed down.
The evil tech giants are now systematically de-platforming all channels and sources of real human knowledge, awakening and truth. For the topics that really matter, the only information that’s allowed to be found on Google, Wikipedia, iPhone apps, YouTube or Twitter is anti-knowledge, or “false facts” that defy reality and indoctrinate the masses to believe in delusions rather than see what’s really happening in the world around them.

05.31.19- The CFTC’s Summer Camp Letter
About 30 years ago, my wife arranged for our then ten-year old son to attend a sleep-away YMCA summer camp in Tallulah Falls, in the Georgia Mountains. While Ross wound up going back to the same camp for several years, eventually serving as a counselor, I knew the first year would involve more than a little concern for his mother (and me) for how he was doing. Since the only communication would be by postal mail (no cellphones or texting back then) and I knew my son was not likely to write without some prodding, I sent him off with a number of pre-printed letters, in which all he had to do was fill in the blanks.

Red pill or blue pill? You decide.
Twenty years after the Wachowskis’ iconic 1999 film, The Matrix, introduced us to a futuristic world in which humans exist in a computer-simulated non-reality powered by authoritarian machines—a world where the choice between existing in a denial-ridden virtual dream-state or facing up to the harsh, difficult realities of life comes down to a red pill or a blue pill.

The Western world is collapsing so rapidly that I am afraid that I am going to outlive it.
The Western presstitutes and politicians have demonized Putin, Maduro, Iran, and Trump to the same extent as the patriotic propagandistic Western court historians have demonized Adolf Hitler. But no one is as demonized as white people, and the curious thing is that it is self-demonization—whites demonizing whites. Read More
05.28.19- War And Young Americans
So we’re going to do this all over again? Well, not if I can help it. Not that I have much hope that I can, mind you. As the bastions of war chime on, my voice, like so many others, will be drowned out. The military industrial complex knows how to do propaganda, better than anyone. But I’ll try.
Vietnam gave the US its biggest ever defeat, both militarily and morally, and yet mere years after its deeply humiliating withdrawal was put into action, the country was back at sending its promising young boys and girls not to its school systems, but to far away battle fields to be crippled, traumatized and slaughtered.

The last 12 months have been the wettest in all of U.S. history, and this has created absolutely horrific conditions for U.S. farmers. Thanks to endless rain and historic flooding that has stretched on for months, many farmers have not been able to plant crops at all, and a lot of the crops that have actually been planted are deeply struggling. What this means is that U.S. agricultural production is going to be way, way down this year. The numbers that I am about to share with you are deeply alarming, and they should serve as a wake up call for all of us. The food that each one of us eats every day is produced by our farmers, and right now our farmers are truly facing a nightmare scenario. Read More
Empire understands nothing except ruthless expansion. It has no other raison d’etre. In the past this meant the violent acquisition of lands and territories by a militarized system where caste was very apparent and visible. But today the dealings of empire are far more duplicitous. The ruling order of this age expands empire via the acquisition of capital while using the military industrial complex to police its exploits. But there is an insidious social conditioning at work which has led the general public to where it is today, a state of “inverted totalitarianism” as political philosopher Sheldon Wolin explained. Indeed, capitalism has morphed into the unassailable religion of the age even among the working class. Its tenets are still viewed as sacrosanct. Read More
It's not just the right to report that's under attack. It's also your right to be informed.

An entirely decentralized network of self-defense rights advocates have taken to the internet to provide plans for 3D-printed guns. It looks like the 3D guns are unregulatable and unstoppable. They’re anonymously sharing the blueprints and advice while simultaneously building an unstoppable community.
Unlike previous attempts to popularize 3D-printed guns, this newer operation is entirely decentralized. There’s no headquarters, no trademarks, and no real leader. The people behind it already understand that this means they can’t be stopped by governments and their laws or regulations. “If they [the government] were to come after me, they’d first have to find my identity,” says Ivan the Troll, a member of the group. “I’m one of many, many like-minded individuals who’re doing this sort of work.” Read More

05.21.19- US vs. THEM
“I’ll show you politics in America. Here it is, right here. “I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs.” “I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking.” “Hey, wait a minute, there’s one guy holding out both puppets!””
Anyone who frequents Twitter, Facebook, political blogs, economic blogs, or fake news mainstream media channels knows our world is driven by the “Us versus Them” narrative. It’s almost as if “they” are forcing us to choose sides and believe the other side is evil. Bill Hicks died in 1994, but his above quote is truer today then it was then. As the American Empire continues its long-term decline, the proles are manipulated through Bernaysian propaganda techniques, honed over the course of decades by the ruling oligarchs, to root for their puppets.

“Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop… And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land.” – Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, one day before he was murdered
What Martin Luther King King won through many hard-fought battles, and in the end through sacrificing his own life, has to be won all over again: freedom, truth, justice. And this time it’s Julian Assange who stands in the frontline. With Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden by his side. Read More
05.18.19- Weekend Rant: The Pivot Point
The massive economic shock following the banking collapse of 2007–8 is the direct cause of the crisis of confidence which is affecting almost all the institutions of western representative democracy. The banking collapse was not a natural event, like a tsunami. It was a direct result of man-made systems and artifices which permitted wealth to be generated and hoarded primarily through multiple financial transactions rather than by the actual production and sale of concrete goods, and which then disproportionately funnelled wealth to those engaged in the mechanics of the transactions.

05.17.19- Constitutional Republic
“The way to have good and safe government is not to trust it all to one, but to divide it among the many, distributing to every one exactly the functions he is competent to.

05.16.19- Hang ’em High: America’s Traitors Must Face Justice
Nothing is clearer than the Democratic Party’s anti-American sentiment and the most shocking violation of the Constitution than the treason, subversion and espionage committed by former U.S President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, key leaders in both the FBI and the Justice Department and scores, if not hundreds, of lesser Democrat operatives, exhibited by their criminal attempts to stop candidate Trump and unseat President Trump. They aided and abetted and propagated a false narrative regarding “Russian collusion”, accused President Trump of being a “traitor” and misled the American people, and, in the process, they framed an innocent man by weaponizing the intelligence services of the United States against him.

05.14.19- War With Iran Has Been
“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies… is a foolish idea. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.” (Carroll Quigley) Read More
05.13.19- Manufactured Iranian Threat in the Persian Gulf
National Security Adviser John Bolton released a statement on May 5 announcing that the United States is deploying the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf. The action is “to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.” There was no clarification regarding any warnings the United States had received about Iran’s activity.
Col. Larry Wilkerson reads the statement as an indication that Bolton is “trying to provoke something” in the gulf. Read More
As expected, trade negotiations with China concluded on Friday with no trade deal in sight. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called the negotiations “constructive”, and that helped calm the financial markets, but there really isn’t any reason to be optimistic at this point. The negotiations that happened this week did not even come close to producing a deal, and neither side is attempting to claim that there will be an agreement in the near future. Instead, it appears that moves are being made that could lead to a protracted trade war. In fact, according to Bloomberg the Trump administration has just given the Chinese another ominous deadline… Read More
My generation associated dystopias, such as George Orwell’s 1984, with the Soviet Union, a country in which explanations were controlled and criticism of Stalin would land a person in the Gulag. We thought of the United States and our life here much differently. But with the passage of time the difference between life in the Soviet Union in the 20th century and life in the Western world today is disappearing. Today, the journalist Julian Assange is undergoing the same kind of state terror and torture as any Soviet dissident, if not worse. The Western media is as controlled as the Soviet media, with print, TV, and public radio serving as a propaganda ministry for government and the interest groups that control government. Read More
This is the closest that the U.S. has been to a war with Iran in decades, and yet most Americans are either clueless or they don’t seem to believe that it could actually happen. And I certainly don’t think that President Trump wants a war, but he is surrounded by war hawks that have been pushing an extremely aggressive “get tough” policy with Iran. The Trump administration just canceled the waivers that were allowing other nations to continue purchasing Iranian oil, and the goal of that move is to reduce Iranian exports to zero. But oil exports are 40 percent of the Iranian economy, and the Iranians understand that this move could absolutely cripple their economy. Read More
05.10.19- D Is for a Dictatorship Disguised as a Democracy
What characterizes American government today is not so much dysfunctional politics as it is ruthlessly contrived governance carried out behind the entertaining, distracting and disingenuous curtain of political theater. And what political theater it is, diabolically Shakespearean at times, full of sound and fury, yet in the end, signifying nothing.
Played out on the national stage and eagerly broadcast to a captive audience by media sponsors, this farcical exercise in political theater can, at times, seem riveting, life-changing and suspenseful, even for those who know better. Read More

Move over cognitive dissonance, you have a new feathered friend. We’ve got something better for you – your discomfort will be triggered and Statism will receive her perfect crown of drunken stupidity; topped off with blind fear and a yearning for more government control.
Here’s to the Modern Day Chicken Littles. A little peck here, and a little peck there will topple every tree in the forest, and God forbid that the sky would come down crashing upon US. We’re all looking for a Savior, but we don’t have time for truth; we need an expanding government to cover our ASSES while we bury our heads in the sand… Read More

05.04.19- Clownshow In DC
Well that escalated quickly and foolishly.
First, Pelosi. Accusing Barr of criminal conduct is an instant "we're done" in terms of cooperation. Do that with someone when you want to question them under oath and all you get from there is "I take the 5th". And that's not limited to Barr either; since Pelosi has thrown that out there nobody in the Administration -- or previously in it -- should do anything other than give name and take the 5th. Show up, erect the middle finger in the form of the 5th Amendment and then shut up. Any subpoena for a "thing" issued you fight. Voluntarily comply with nothing. Read More
(Natural News) Events are rapidly coalescing to the inevitable conclusion that America must either rise up and defend itself or fall to the lawless, lunatic Leftists and globalists who seek to destroy it from within.
Everything you’ve been told about global warming, climate change and carbon dioxide by the mainstream media — and mainstream “science” — is an outright lie. Far from being a dangerous poison, carbon dioxide is a miraculous life-giving nutrient that plants need to thrive. Rising carbon dioxide is actually helping “green” the planet, as any legitimate science already knows. Without CO2 in the atmosphere, nearly all life on the planet would collapse, including both human life and plant life. (See my numerous science videos, which explain all this in detail.) Read More
The next bombshell report to drop from the Justice Department likely will earn none of the breathless fanfare and media coverage that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report received, but it could be far more incriminating.
In the next several weeks, Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to issue his summation of the potential abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by top officials in the Obama Administration and holdovers in the early Trump Administration who were overseeing the investigation of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Albert Einstein once wrote that “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Were he alive today, he would be repeating the line to anyone who would listen, especially the reporters on cable news channels such as CNBC. He might add that the world’s policymakers always approach oil market disruptions in the same way: predicting there will be no impact on prices.
Einstein would then point out that the policymakers are consistently wrong. A hefty price boost has followed every disruption. Read More
Even if you disable GPS, deactivate phone location tracking, and turn off your phone, it’s still possible for Google and the NSA to monitor your every move.
Over the last two decades, cell phone use has become an everyday part of life for the vast majority of people around the planet. Nearly without question, consumers have chosen to carry these increasingly smart devices with them everywhere they go. Despite surveillance revelations from whistleblowers like Edward Snowden, the average smart phone user continues to carry the devices with little to no security or protection from privacy invasions.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is on a mission to eliminate all access to adult stem cell therapy, a medical protocol that involves utilizing a patient’s own endogenous stem cells for regenerative healing. And putting two and two together, it’s because this natural technique doesn’t require the use of any pharmaceutical drugs, which means the Big Pharma companies that control the FDA don’t make any money from it.
In the crosshairs of this anti-health freedom FDA crusade is Dr. Kristin Comella, Ph.D., an adult stem cell specialist based out of South Florida who’s been successfully treating patients with adult stem cells for the past 15 years. Dr. Comella and her clinic have reportedly been under attack not only by the FDA, but also by the mainstream media, which has repeatedly published lies and slander against her in order to destroy her reputation.

04.26.19- Social Security Warns On New Phone Spoofing Scam
Just weeks after the Social Security Administration (SSA) warned about an Office of the Inspector General (OIG) impersonation scheme, the Acting Inspector General of Social Security, Gale Stallworth Stone, is raising an alert about a new scam. This time, the scheme involves thieves who are engaging in caller-ID “spoofing” which echoes a pattern where thieves pretend to be from government agencies, like those scammers who are spoofing calls from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

High octane speculation or no high octane speculation, this one definitely has the foul odor of “disaster crapitalism”, a.k.a. “disaster capitalism.” In this case, the disaster crapitalism may have backfired however, but we’ll get back to that. First, just in case there are any new readers here unfamiliar with our “memes,” a definition of “disaster capitalism” and an explanation of how “capitalism” became “crapitalism” is in order. And just so we’re clear right up front, I am not a socialist of any order or degree. I believe in private property, entrepreneurship, competition… you know, the usual mantra of things a “capitalist” should believe in. Read More
“Children are being targeted and sold for sex in America every day.”—John Ryan, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children
Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old.
This is America’s dirty little secret. Read More
04.23.19- A Nasty Tax Surprise
Last week, I talked about a new way that Congress might hurt lots of Americans who have used IRAs to save lots of money and I said this was just the latest in a long list of transgressions against well-prepared retirees.
If you happen to be a Baby Boomer with even moderate retirement income, you’re probably familiar with one of the biggest examples.
Or, if you started collecting Social Security benefits last year, perhaps you just found out about it when you filed your taxes. Read More
04.22.19- An Empire of Bullshit
After two years of gaslighting the public while it blew smoke up America’s ass, the Jacobin news media enjoyed its final feeding frenzy with the release of the 400-page Mueller report. They expected 1000 pounds of raw filet mignon, but it turned out to be tofu fried in olestra. The ensuing fugue of hyperventilating hysteria was also duly expected and William Barr stoically endured their hebephrenic peevings at the release ceremony — a press conference which itself offended the media. Read More
Opening up the floodgates of immigration to people from shit-hole countries would not actually be a problem if America was a free country.
If people were free to keep what they earn instead of having it redistributed, free to defend themselves and their loved ones wherever they went, free to become entrepreneurs without impossible protectionist regulations, America would absorb and assimilate any number of immigrants and refugees.

Wolfgang Halbig’s 16 Unanswered Questions That Demand Truth on Sandy Hook first appeared on SandyHookJustice.com. They follow:
Who directed the New Haven FBI field offices to classify [in the sense of restricting access to information about] the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting on Dec 14, 2012?
Why would the FBI classify the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting when they did not classify the Columbine shooting, which also was a mass casualty shooting incident? Read More
The arrest of Julian Assange has produced rapturous cheering from the American political elite. Hillary Clinton declared that Assange “must answer for what he has done.” Unfortunately, Assange’s arrest will do nothing to prevent the vast majority of conniving politicians and bureaucrats from paying no price for deceiving the American public.
“Truth will out” is a phrase that is routinely recited to keep Americans paying and obeying. Politicians and editorial writers toss this phrase out to simmer down any fears that the government might be conspiring against the people. Actually, “truth will out” is the biggest fairy tale in Washington. Read More
What if it’s all one gigantic trap?
What if the Powers That Be are purposely ramping stocks as high as possible while they implement legislation/ policies that will make it all but impossible to get your money out when the panic hits.
Put another way… what if the stock market bubble is just one gigantic trap so that when the next crisis hits… the Fed can implement policies through which it uses YOUR money, to prop up the system? Read More
The evidence of political pressure on Ecuador is surfacing. The IMF Executive Board Approved US$4.2 Billion (435% of quota and SDR 3.035 billion) Extended Fund Facility for Ecuador. The Executive Board agreed to this arrangement with strings attached. The Board’s decision enables the immediate disbursement of US$652 million (equivalent to SDR 469,7 million, or 67.3 percent of Ecuador’s quota). This arrangement provides support for the Ecuadorean government’s economic policies over the next three years provided they gave up Julian Assange.
It is very interesting how corruption and bribes grease the world. Every person who ever becomes a whistleblower on government goes to prison. Read More
04.15.19- Cascading Cat Litter
And so now Julian Assange of Wikileaks has been dragged out of his sanctuary in the London embassy of Ecuador for failing to clean his cat’s litter box. Have you ever cleaned a litter box? The way we always did it was to spread some newspaper — say, The New York Times — on the floor, transfer the used cat litter onto it, wrap it into a compact package, and put it in the trash.
It was interesting to scan the Comments section of The Times’s stories about the Assange arrest: Times readers uniformly presented themselves as a lynch mob out for Mr. Assange’s blood. So much for the spirit of liberalism and The Old Gray Lady who had published The Pentagon Papers purloined by Daniel Ellsberg lo so many years ago. Reading between the lines in that once-venerable newspaper, one surmises that The Times has actually come out against freedom of the press, a curious attitude, but consistent with the neo-Jacobin zeitgeist in “blue” America these days.

04.13.19- Weekend Rant: April 15 Is Slavery Day
The Jews’ path to profitable victimhood was the Holocaust. For blacks the path is slavery.
We hear endlessly about Slavery. Slavery is always the fault of white people, especially the Founding Fathers, the Confederacy, and Robert E. Lee.
Slavery is never the fault of black Africans who engaged in slave wars against one another. Slaves were a status symbol. When slave wars produced more slaves than victors could afford to maintain, the Africans began selling each other to the Arabs. When the Europeans discovered the New World and needed a work force for the rice and sugar and later cotton plantations, they purchased Africans from the black Kingdom of Dahomey. Read More
04.12.19- Infrastructure or Pensions – States are Only Choosing One
There are currently two crises in the U.S. in need of attention: infrastructures and public pensions. Unfortunately, this twin crisis appears to have developed into an “either-or” crisis.
According to a recent article at Barron’s, States will have to choose one or the other (emphasis ours):
There is an infrastructure crisis in America. The U.S. earned a D+ in infrastructure for 2017 from the American Society of Civil Engineers. State pensions aren’t in great shape either. They are underfunded by an astounding $6 trillion. And as Barron’s Randall Forsyth points out, U.S. states face a dilemma: they need to fund both infrastructure and pensions, but have trouble doing either. Read More
04.11.19- Millennials for Socialism
If one needed evidence of the gross ignorance of millennials, and their teachers and college professors, it’s their solid support for socialism and socialist presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders. Socialism has produced tragedy wherever it has been implemented. Last year marked the 40th anniversary of nearly 1,000 Americans perishing in a mass suicide/murder in the jungles of Guyana. Just as Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez see socialism as mankind’s salvation, so, too, did Rev. Jim Jones, who told his followers, “God is Socialism, and I am Principle Socialism, and that’s what makes me God.” Read More
04.10.19- America’s Real National Emergency
PARIS – Donald Trump thinks there’s a national emergency on America’s southern border.
Bridgewater’s Ray Dalio was on 60 Minutes over the weekend; he thinks American capitalism is such a mess – and that inequality of wealth is so skewed – that the president should call a national emergency to fix it.
But the real emergency lies elsewhere. Read More
04.09.19- Ohio considers approving “constitutional carry”
Ohio is set to become the 17th state to approve “constitutional carry,” a law that would allow all law-abiding Ohioans to carry a concealed weapon without obtaining a permit — a measure that Republican Gov. Mike DeWine supports. If approved, Ohio would become the 17th state to approve connotational carry.
On Tuesday, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin signed into law Senate Bill 150, making Kentucky the 16th state to allow “constitutional carry.” The Kentacky law states that “Persons age twenty-one (21) or older, and otherwise able to lawfully possess a firearm, may carry concealed firearms or other concealed deadly weapons without a license in the same locations as persons with valid licenses issued under KRS 237.110.” Read More
04.08.19- The latest Social Justice absurdity…
Each Friday we highlight a number of important, and often bizarre stories from around the world that my team and I are closely following:
It happens way too often here at Sovereign Man… we joke around about the next outlandish demands of Social Justice Warriors. And then it happens.
This time the Journal of Medical Ethics published a paper arguing that if you don’t feel your “chronological” age, you should be able to change it??? Read More
04.06.19- Dear Mr. President, A Warning...
I write to you because I’m seeing something unfold that concerns you, and I have no way of knowing if you’re aware of it, nor have I seen anyone else mention it. That is, sir, you are being set up, a trap is being set for you, and unless you are aware of it, you may well walk into that trap eyes wide open.
It may not be in your briefing this morning, but the WikiLeaks organization has reported that high-ranking Ecuadorean state officials have told them Julian Assange will be expelled from their London embassy in a matter of “hours to days”. Now, I don’t know what your personal opinion is of Mr. Assange, maybe you think he deserves punishment for leaking secret files to the public. Read More
I sometimes think that the free market concept is treated like The Hunchback of Notre-Dame’s Quasimodo in the long novel of global economic history. It is considered ugly and undesirable by most people who judge it at a mere glance without bothering to understand it. It is a bogeyman; a scapegoat for numerous societal problems that it has nothing to do with. In reality, the only time free markets do cause trouble is when they are manipulated or misused by elitists seeking to turn them into something other than free markets. And, even when free markets display their great value and internal beauty, many still prefer other systems that are intrinsically corrupt but flashier on the surface. Read More
GUALFIN, ARGENTINA – Remember, yesterday and today, we let the shades speak.
We make no predictions. Nor do we connect any dots.
Instead, we merely stand back and marvel at the gall… the conceit… the shameful, egotistical, self-dealing of it. We’re talking about the vanity of the living.
Phantoms of the Future
And rather than pass judgement ourselves, we call upon the dead… and the unborn… to do the talking. Yesterday, we heard from the ghosts of the past. Today, the phantoms of the future tell their tale: Read More
04.03.19- 50 Years Later, We’re Still Stranded
“We’re developing a new citizenry. One that will be very selective about cereals and automobiles, but won’t be able to think.” — Rod Serling
Have you noticed how much life increasingly feels like an episode of The Twilight Zone?
Only instead of Rod Serling’s imaginary “land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas,” we’re trapped in a topsy-turvy, all-too-real land of corruption, brutality and lies, where freedom, justice and integrity play second fiddle to political ambition, corporate greed, and bureaucratic tyranny.Read More
04.02.19- Western Culture Has Died A Politically Correct Death
It is amazing the power that politically correct kooks have acquired over language, art, and literature. It is a sign that the West is culturally dead.
When high museums rename paintings because some emotional weakling declares the name to be offensive, it becomes obvious that the custodians of Western culture have lost their belief in Western culture.
When universities cover up murals because of a claim they are offensive to people whose presence on the campus is miniscule if present at all, you know that learning is no longer the purpose of the university. Read More
04.01.19- The Real American Revolution -
Many have, over the years, no doubt to their government school “educations” looked at the 14th Amendment, and been under the misguided delusion that it was a milestone in the cause of “racial equality.”
It might not hurt for those prone to such flights of fancy to take a look at the prime mover behind that amendment, the radical Thaddeus Stevens from Pennsylvania(and no credit to that state). I have recently done articles dealing with him so this will only add info to what’s already out there. Stevens has been characterized by some who’ve written about him as an “apostle of hate.” I guess you’d have to say that’s an apt description of him. His vindictive attitude toward the South before, during, and after the War of Northern Aggression might well be described as pathological. Read More
Recently, I wrote about a new “free-range parenting” law South Carolina is considering. The proposed law mirrors one enacted by Utah last year. Both are trying to protect parents from neglect charges for things like letting their kids play unsupervised at a playground. They are a response to situations in which parents were prosecuted or otherwise tormented for using their discretion about when their kids could be left alone.
We aren’t talking about toddlers playing near highways. We are talking about school-age children doing things that a generation ago would have been commonplace. Read More
Kit Knightly, at the excellent news-site Off-Guardian, headlined on March 25th, “Mueller’s Sideshow Closes – But it has Served its Purpose”, and he concluded that the most credible hypothesis as to what the actual purpose of Mueller’s investigation was is to fool the American public to think that the U.S. Government is honest and trustworthy, and that its public officials are accountable to the public. Knightly thinks that it’s all just a con. But the purpose of the present article is simply to document the type of person that Mueller himself is — to document it from his actual record in various public offices that Mueller has held.

03.27.19- The Real Game of Missing Money
Last week we started a new feature in Notes from the Field– a Friday roll-up of bizarre, often overlooked stories that my team and I think are worth following with great interest.
Based on the positive feedback we received from last week’s article, we thought we’d continue the trend. So here are a few important stories that we’re paying close attention to: Read More
03.25.19- Trump Is America’s First Zionist President
It is impossible not to feel some sympathy for President Donald Trump. His agenda to restore normal relations with Russia and to end Washington’s gratuitous wars has been frustrated by the “Russiagate hoax” that the military/security complex and corrupt Democratic Party used in the effort to remove Trump from the presidency. He and his wife have been embarrassed by the fake “Steele Dossier” paid for by the Clinton campaign and used by a corrupt FBI leadership to illegitimately obtain spy warrants on Trump and his associates. Accused of cavorting with prostitutes in Moscow and confronted with claims by a porn star of an affair in order to boost the recognition value of her name, Trump and his wife have experienced uncomfortable times. Read More
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin conducting hearings next Tuesday, March 26, on Senate Bill 7, the Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act of 2019—otherwise known as a national “red flag” gun confiscation bill. The bill was introduced in the Senate by Marco Rubio (R-FL). If this gun confiscation bill passes the U.S. Senate, it will most certainly pass the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, and President Trump absolutely WILL sign it into law. Read More
03.22.19- Politics Has Failed;
With each passing day, we get closer to the shift in the tide that will sweep away this self-serving delusion of the ruling elites like a crumbling sand castle.
Those living in revolutionary times are rarely aware of the tumult ahead: in 1766, a mere decade before the Declaration of Independence, virtually no one was calling for American independence. Indeed, in 1771, a mere 5 years before the rebellion was declared, the voices promoting independence were few and far between. Read More
03.21.19- The 10th Circle of Hell
On the evening of March 25 in the year 1300, Italian poet Dante Alighieri stepped through the gates of Hell, passing beneath an overhead inscription that read “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”
Dante summoned all of his courage and proceeded, plunging deeper into the despair of hell.
This is the ‘Inferno’ tale of Dante’s Divina Commedia, an epic poem completed just before his death in 1321. Read More

03.19.19- Only Capitalism Will Save The Millennials
03.18.19- “Diversity” and the Sack of America
Just like the ancient Rome fell to barbaric invasions that begun some 1,600 years ago, the most advanced product of Western civilization, the United States of America, is falling into the hands of less civilized peoples whose main collective accomplishments have been the overpopulation of their half-developed countries and civil disorder that usually accompanies it.
Although neither they nor their ancestors were able to build well-functioning and prosperous societies, which would require establishment of adequate political structures and construction of productive economies, they have managed to multiply fast enough – mostly due to Western help, technology, and investment – to outnumber the Westerners, by 2050, ten to one.

The left has a new obsession… Modern Monetary Theory (MMT).
MMT is an economic theory which essentially argues that the U.S. government wouldn’t need to collect taxes or borrow money to finance spending. It could simply print more money if necessary.
Now, this concept isn’t new. It’s been around for decades. But its popularity has skyrocketed, thanks to endorsements from Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez , the new rising star of the Democratic Party. Read More
03.15.19- Commentary: After the Coup Is Over
As the perpetrators of one of the most shameful scandals in American political history begin slowly to retreat, we are left to ponder one overarching question:
The tale we’ve been told for more than two years—that Donald Trump’s campaign team, possibly even the candidate himself, colluded with the Kremlin to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election—has been exposed as a lie. Various investigations into this alleged conspiracy are coming up empty and the accomplices are trying to change the subject. Even more pathetically, some still are clinging to the farce, desperate to salvage whatever still remains of their already sketchy credibility. Read More
Things that used to be true before political correctness set in:
Before sending ignorant hate mail, consider these Wikipedia entries:
Socialism is the price Capitalism pays for unrestrained and unpunished greed, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new face of Socialism in America. AOC refers to her Socialist revolution — for now wrapped up in the Green New Deal before congress — as the “politics of optimism,” and so it is. That’s because Socialism is the direction to which hope among the young and idealistic most often flows when Capitalism run by the old has grown corrupt and exhausted and is destroying itself with unrestrained greed andunpunished financial crimes.

03.12.19- We Used To Throw Criminals Off
(Natural News) In a December 2015 column, Natural News founder and editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, wrote that President Obama was a “sleeper cell” and he was overseeing the destruction of American traditions, culture, security, and liberty.
“As President Obama is about to make a televised speech this evening, it’s important that America realize who he really is. Obama is a sleeper cell who’s intent is the deliberate destruction of America’s culture, economy and national defense. When President Obama speaks, he’s speaking not as an American, but as a radical communist Muslim pretending to be an American,” he wrote. Read More

Two points about today’s political economy – and then a prediction involving Illinois:
Point One: What’s coming is poetic justice for the aristocracy

GUALFIN, ARGENTINA – As the quality of government declines – from Jefferson and Adams… to Dubya and The Donald – the observer needs a broader sense of humor.
Where he used to titter over a bon mot… or smile wryly at a double entendre, now he can only give a hoarse laugh, like a half-wit watching The Three Stooges.
For now, there’s not even a single entendre. It’s just mud wrestling and pie throwing. Read More
It is nearly impossible to traverse web news or popular media today without being assaulted by vast amounts of propaganda on Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is perhaps the fad to end all fads as it supposedly encompasses almost every aspect of human existence, from economics and security to philosophy and art. According to mainstream claims, AI can do almost everything and do it better than any human being. And, the things AI can't do, it WILL be able to do eventually. Read More
By the year 1380, the Hundred Years’ War between England and France had already been raging for decades.
And the war wasn’t going very well for England.
France had managed to recapture most of the territories they had lost early in the war; meanwhile French naval fleets were ravaging the coastline of southern England and destroying English commercial vessels.
To make matters worse, England had recently been devastated by the Bubonic Plague, which killed nearly a third of the population. Read More
03.01.19- Building a Great Wall of Wealth
Honestly, the inequality gap in America should stagger the imagination or, on second thought, maybe it shouldn’t, not with the first billionaire in the White House and at least two more threatening to join him in a run for the presidency in 2020. After all, we now live on the planet of the billionaires. In January, as the billionaire summit in Davos, Switzerland, was about to be held, Oxfam summed our world up this way:
“Billionaire fortunes increased by 12% last year -- or $2.5 billion a day -- while the 3.8 billion people who make up the poorest half of humanity saw their wealth decline by 11%... [T]he number of billionaires has nearly doubled since the financial crisis, yet wealthy individuals and corporations are paying lower rates of tax than they have in decades, thanks in part to the new tax law championed by Trump.” Read More
Seriously, this follows after signing petitions to murder babies after birth by George Mason University students. Kent State graduate and all around gun girl Kaitlin Bennett showed up undercover at UCLA to promote a petition that would put conservatives in concentration camps, and yes, there were students who signed it.
I actually believe that people in these indoctrination centers, more than less, don’t have a clue about life or the world around them. Read More
As you’ve probably been noticing lately, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to access honest and truthful information online, as the tech overlords who want to control us all continue to impose all sorts of new censorship tactics aimed at stamping out facts and replacing them with lies and propaganda.
Their latest target appears to be information about vaccines, as Leftists are now actively pressuring social media platforms like Facebook and Pinterest to restrict all content that in any way suggests that government-approved vaccines are unsafe and ineffective. Read More
02.26.19- “Us vs. Them” Is Always a Scam
The Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax was planned at the highest levels of the (Obama) deep state and was intended to foment a race war across America, say multiple sources across the independent media. The official explanation that Smollett “masterminded” (if you can call it that) the hate crime hoax because he wanted a pay raise for his work as an actor on Empire just doesn’t hold water. He is reportedly being paid $65K per episode, bringing in more than $1.1 million per year. Yet we are supposed to believe he would risk his entire career (and significant earnings) to try to push for an increase in his pay? Read More
02.23.19- Weekend Rant: The Fuse Has Been Lit. This Is The Path
I’ve never been much of a drinker, but it’s times like these I think I need to change that.
Let me present to you three exhibits, and then we’ll go into what the hell is happening because while it looks confusing it’s really quite simple.
Maybe you’ve heard the story. Maybe not, so here’s the quick rundown.
This guy, an actor whose acting skills hopefully are better than his language skills, clearly has a beef with the Donald. Read More
02.22.19- If Truth Is Politicized, All Is Lost
Trump’s surrender to the neoconservatives makes it impossible for an informed person to support him. He has signed off on the coup against democracy in Venezuela, and he has placed all life at risk by pulling out of the INF treaty with Russia. Putin has publicly announced that the consequences of Washington’s reckless and irresponsible decision to junk the INF treaty will be the targeting of the missile sites in Europe and also of the American command and control centers. As I write there is nothing on the BBC or CNN websites or anywhere else in the US print and TV media about the President of Russia’s clear statement. Trump has allowed the crazed neocons to raise the likelihood of nuclear Armageddon to near certainty, and it has gone unreported by the presstitutes. Read More
Virtually everything that you do online and offline is being monitored, tracked or recorded by someone. Could you imagine what life would be like if the government compiled all of that information into a giant database and used it to punish those that had engaged in politically-incorrect behavior? Here in the United States, Internet censorship has escalated dramatically, but over in China the government is cracking down on a much wider array of online and offline activities. If you fail to make a credit card payment, get into an argument in public or say the wrong thing on social media, you could suddenly find yourself restricted from conducting a whole host of normal economic activities. Read More
The choice is ours folks.
It isn’t the media’s choice, or politician’s choice. They respond to the “marketplace”, not the other way around.
The marketplace says identity politics and victimhood for certain people and certain incident, but not others, sells.
We either stop this — and do it now — or the spiraling out of control that has taken over this nation is going to lead to one group or another picking up guns and using them — not on one person at a time, but in a ginned-up and unwarranted rage. Those who they intend to use them against will, justifiably, fight back — and, as soon as the rest of us figure out that this is not a one-off but rather a seismic shift that fighting back will become offensive and preemptive in nature rather than defensive.

02.19.19- Do You Belive in the Deep State Now?
The revelation that top Justice officials considered unseating Trump should answer that question for good.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
That’s a natural reaction to the revelation of Andrew G. McCabe, the former deputy FBI director, that top Justice Department officials, alarmed by Donald Trump’s firing of former Bureau director James Comey, explored a plan to invoke the 25th Amendment and kick the duly elected president out of office.

Right up front, there are some things that I need to tell you about myself. I want you to know where I came from and how I got to where I am today. I don’t want to ever be accused of deception or dishonesty.
So, in full disclosure: I was not born a Constitutionalist. I did not live my life with an inherent understanding of Liberty and what is necessary to defend it. I was not raised a Christian. For some, these things will be a stumbling block, so you need to know from me. Read More
SALTA, ARGENTINA – We watch. We wait. We wonder.
“The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation,” wrote Hemingway. “The second is war…” he continued. And the third is concrete.

Top macroeconomists are calling for a recession “before the end of 2020.” What? We’ve already been waiting for years… Read More
02.15.19- How Many Minutes to Midnight?
Last month, the National Nuclear Security Administration (formerly the Atomic Energy Commission) announced that the first of a new generation of strategic nuclear weapons had rolled off the assembly line at its Pantex nuclear weapons plant in the panhandle of Texas. That warhead, the W76-2, is designed to be fitted to a submarine-launched Trident missile, a weapon with a range of more than 7,500 miles. By September, an undisclosed number of warheads will be delivered to the Navy for deployment.
What makes this particular nuke new is the fact that it carries a far smallerdestructive payload than the thermonuclear monsters the Trident has been hosting for decades -- not the equivalent of about 100 kilotons of TNT as previously, but of five kilotons. Read More

Life in America has become a gut-wrenching, soul-sucking, misery-drenched, demoralizing existence.
We have managed to survive crackdowns, clampdowns, shutdowns, showdowns, shootdowns, standdowns, knockdowns, putdowns, breakdowns, lockdowns, takedowns, slowdowns, meltdowns, and never-ending letdowns.
We’ve been held up, stripped down, faked out, photographed, frisked, fracked, hacked, tracked, cracked, intercepted, accessed, spied on, zapped, mapped, searched, shot at, tasered, tortured, tackled, trussed up, tricked, lied to, labeled, libeled, leered at, shoved aside, saddled with debt not of our own making, sold a bill of goods about national security, tuned out by those representing us, tossed aside, and taken to the cleaners.

Scientists are telling us that we have entered “the sixth major extinction” in the history of our planet. A brand new survey of 73 scientific reports that was just released has come to the conclusion that the total number of insects on the globe is falling by 2.5 percent per year. If we stay on this current pace, the survey warns that there might not be “any insects at all” by the year 2119. And since insects are absolutely critical to the worldwide food chain, that has extremely ominous implications for all of us. Read More
02.12.19- You’ve Been Bamboozled
“From time immemorial proverbial wisdom has taught the virtues of saving,” wrote Henry Hazlitt, “and warned against the consequences of prodigality and waste.”
Hazlitt authored his masterly primer on economics, Economics in One Lesson, in 1946.
Yet he etched it in the rock of ages with its insights timeless.
“But there have always been squanderers, and there have apparently always been theorists to rationalize their squandering.” Read More
The only thing that seems to be constant in our society is change, and today America is changing at a pace that is more rapid than we have ever seen before. But is that a good thing or a bad thing? For a moment, I would like for you to imagine what it would be like for a group of average Americans from 1919 to suddenly be transported to our time. How do you think that they would feel about what we have become? Certainly they would be absolutely amazed by our advanced technology, but beyond that they would almost certainly have very strong opinions about the current state of our society. Read More
What happened to #BelieveSurvivors?
From Fox News: Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing Wednesday on new gun control legislation Democrats plan to push on the American people. The top Republican on the committee, Doug Collins, R-Ga., asked committee Democrats if I could testify about this legislation in an appropriate setting to offer another perspective as both a survivor of a shooting attack and strong supporter of our Second Amendment rights. But the Democrats said no. While liberals may try to silence conservative voices, I will not be silenced. The American people deserve to hear all perspectives. Here is the testimony I planned to give: Read More
“As I look at America today, I am not afraid to say that I am afraid.”—Bertram Gross, Friendly Fascism: The New Face of Power in America
When I say that these are dangerous times, it is not because of violent crime, which remains at an all-time low, or because of terrorism, which is statistically rare, or because our borders are being invaded by armies, which data reports from the Department of Homeland Security refute. Read More
02.07.19- Who’s America’s True Enemy?
YOUGHAL, IRELAND – We warned readers. This week would require a little extra effort. We are challenging one of our most deeply held instincts – the drive to take sides.
As expected, many readers sided against your editor yesterday. They were generally in agreement that he is an SOB.
But they couldn’t agree on what kind of SOB he was. Red? Or Blue? Few could believe he was colorblind. (See below…) Read More
(Natural News) Most Americans who don’t earn their living in the news business don’t know that in recent weeks some 2,100 journalists, most of them from online news sources, have lost their jobs in a sort of industry bloodletting similar to the loss of factory jobs over the decades thanks to Left-wing trade policies.
What I’m about to say may sound totally crazy at first. But keep reading, because I think you’ll agree that it’s dead-on accurate.
There’s a recession coming.
No, that’s not some Chicken Little “The Sky is Falling” statement. Far from it. It’s just a fact: economies and financial markets always go through boom and bust cycles. There are good years and lean years, up years and down years. Read More
The end of America’s unchallenged global economic dominance has arrived sooner than expected, thanks to the very same Neocons who gave the world the Iraq, Syria and the dirty wars in Latin America. Just as the Vietnam War drove the United States off gold by 1971, its violent regime change warfare against Venezuela and Syria – and threatening other countries with sanctions if they do not join this crusade – is driving European and other nations to create their alternative financial institutions.

I know I am speaking for tens of thousands of my fellow Montanans and tens of millions of my fellow Americans when I write what I’m about to write.
The “red flag” laws that are sweeping the country violate every principle of liberty upon which our country was founded. There is no due process associated with “red flag” laws. A judge’s order to seize the firearms from an American citizen who has not been accused of a crime, charged with a crime, convicted of a crime—or who never even threatened to commit a crime—based on the accusation of a single individual is anything but due process.

02.01.19- A Lawless Government
I remember when a suspect was regarded as innocent until proven guilty in a fair trial. Today prosecutors convict their victims in the media in order to make an unbiased jury impossible and thereby coerce a plea bargain that saves the prosecutor from having to prove his case. In the United States law is no longer a shield of the people. Law is a weapon in the hands of prosecutors.
Formerly, if a prosecutor staged an arrest for publicity purposes, as Mueller did by placing a CNN presstitute on the scene and sending a couple of dozen heavily armed men in a pre-dawn raid to arrest a well known political consultant for allegedly “lying to Congress” when the appropriate procedure is for Mueller to inform Stone’s lawyer to present his client for indictment, the judge would throw out the case on the grounds that the prosecutor’s action had biased the juror pool.

In the midst of the three ring circus known as the false Left/Right paradigm it is sometimes easy to forget that there is a motive behind the chaos; that there is an intended end game. Part of that end game, I believe, is the eventual erasure of individual liberties and the implementation of martial law in the US. However, the establishment quest for government lockdown requires something very special in order to succeed – They need a considerable percentage of the population to support and defend it.
Governments rarely attempt outright martial law. The reason should be obvious; no military, no matter how advanced, has the capacity to suppress a unified citizenry. If the public is armed, the task becomes even more impossible. Read More
Many think that the theory of political correctness, and the outworking of that theory, also known as cultural Marxism, is a godless theory, based solely on economic determinism the way classic Marxism is supposed to be. Nothing could be further from the truth.
In truth, political correctness contains a theology peopled by a whole host of would-be deities, all seeking to dethrone the God of Scripture so they can “ascend on high” and take His place, at which point they will fight among themselves over which of them is the most qualified to usurp His throne. They all have certain theological premises in common for all their differences. Read More
Problem: Do you have any idea how many areas of your life involve the government? Now all these areas, that you didn’t even know the government was involved in, are affected by the shutdown!
Mainstream solution: Re-open government, and continue to leave all these sectors vulnerable to the incompetence and maliciousness of government.
Actual solution: GET THE GOVERNMENT THE HELL OUT OF THE ECONOMY! Read More
01.26.19- The Exceptional Nation Asserts Its Exceptionalism
Few Latin American governments have ever had a government that represents the majority indigenous people or a president who was not of Spanish descent. Chavez in Venezuela perhaps was the longest lasting indigenous leader. His successor Maduro is also indigenous. Read More
Okay, we all know how awful Hillary Clinton is. We all know that Donald Trump said all the right things (well, many of the right things) on the campaign trail. We all know—at least believed—that Trump was not an establishment insider. We all know that Trump promised to “drain the swamp,” dramatically reduce America’s out-of-control deficit spending, protect the Second Amendment, get America out of its endless foreign wars, terminate taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, overturn Roe v Wade and build a wall on our southern border—that Mexico would pay for—in order to stop the flow of illegal immigration into America.

“As more and more data flows from your body and brain to the smart machines via the biometric sensors, it will become easy for corporations and government agencies to know you, manipulate you, and make decisions on your behalf… If we want to prevent a small elite from monopolising such godlike powers, and if we want to prevent humankind from splitting into biological castes, the key question is: who owns the data? Does the data about my DNA, my brain and my life belong to me, to the government, to a corporation, or to the human collective?”―Professor Yuval Noah Harari
Uncle Sam wants you.
Correction: Uncle Sam wants your DNA. Read More
Every so often throughout history, the peasants grab their pitchforks and come for the elite. It happens when the wealth gap grows too extreme… when people feel like they are getting left behind, with no opportunity to advance.
Central banks around the world have printed trillions of dollars over last decade, and pushed interest rates to zero, and sometimes below. And all of that stimulus went directly into the pockets of the wealthy.
Since 2009, the world’s billionaires more than DOUBLED their combined wealth. All the billionaires in the world had $3.4 trillion in 2009. By 2017, they amassed $8.9 trillion. Read More
Condemnations of consumerism are nearly ubiquitous in modern media and popular culture. Anyone who has seen "A Charlie Brown Christmas," produced in 1965, knows the drill. Every time we see Charlie Brown choose an "authentic" Christmas — by buying a small, natural Christmas tree instead of a showy pink mass-produced aluminum one — we're reminded it's important to not sell out to corporate marketers.
Little has changed since then. "9 ways to resist the siren call of consumerism," reads a recent headline from a lifestyle magazine. "4 Things To Do Instead Of Shopping In Black Friday’s Frenzy Of Consumerism," reads another headline from HuffPo. Read More
Trade is a fundamental element of human survival. No one person can produce every single product or service necessary for a comfortable life, no matter how Spartan their attitude. Unless your goal is to desperately scratch an existence from your local terrain with no chance of progress in the future, you are going to need a network of other producers. For most of the history of human civilization, production was the basis for economy. All other elements were secondary.
At some point, as trade grows and thrives, a society is going to start looking for a store of value; something that represents the man-hours and effort and ingenuity a person put into their day. Read More
01.19.19- At Age 70, Time To Rethink NATO
So said President Charles De Gaulle, who in 1966 ordered NATO to vacate its Paris headquarters and get out of France.
NATO this year celebrates a major birthday. The young girl of 1966 is no longer young. The alliance is 70 years old.
And under this aging NATO today, the U.S. is committed to treat an attack on any one of 28 nations from Estonia to Montenegro to Romania to Albania as an attack on the United States. Read More
01.18.19- Let Them Eat Cake
01.17.19- Malice in the Palace
Dysfunctional, corrupt, lust, greedy, racketeers, negligent, inefficient, slovenly, collusion and conspiracy are just a few words that describe the political and bureaucratic scene, not only in Washington DC, but in many capitols around the world. Each one of these words plays out daily in all levels of the American government, federal, state and local ….. because we the people have allowed this bad behavior to exist for a very long time. If there is anyone to blame, it is the “People’s Choice.”
It has been said that the American system of government and justice is the best system on the planet. But after many years of observing the antics of the nutcases in the political, bureaucratic and judicial asylum, by an octogenarian, that ain’t saying anything special. Read More
01.16.19- Beto O’Rourke Suggests America Should Ditch the Constitution
Potential presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke has stunningly suggested that the United States should ditch its own Constitution.
During an interview with the Washington Post, the Texas Congressman openly mulled whether the rapidly changing nature of the world meant that the founding document of the country was out of date. Read More
01.15.19- Identity Politics = White Genocide
The subversion of fact-based science and scholarship by the emotion-based ideology of Identity Politics is laying the groundwork for the genocide of white people. This sounds like an outlandish statement. However, it follows logically from the identification of white people with violence, oppression, and every evil in the world.
In a number of columns I have reported examples of attacks on scientists for concluding on the basis of their research that race, gender, and intelligence have a genetic basis. As I am not educated in genetics, I cannot attest to the truth, falsity, or extent of genetic differences. My interest is limited to the suppression of scientific findings by ideology. We are reliving the Catholic Church’s suppression of the evidence, and punishment of those who presented it, that the earth revolved around the sun and not vice versa. Read More
The other day at work I mentioned to someone that there ought to be national holidays honoring John Wilkes Booth; the man who assassinated Abraham Lincoln, and Aaron Burr; the man who shot Alexander Hamilton in a duel. I was told that talk like that would get me put on a government watch list. As corrupt as our government is, I think it is the duty of every patriot to be on at least one watch list. I’m pretty sure I’m already on two of them; possibly more.
Some of you may know this, but I served in the military for 13 years; getting out when the Air Force offered incentive bonuses for E-5’s and E-6’s to separate or face possible RIF’s, (Reduction in Force), or mandatory cross training into another career field. When I was stationed at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida I met a guy and we became best buddies. After I got out we remained in contact for years…until 9/11 that is. Read More
The Transportation Security Administration, a federal agency, is facing a no-show problem with employees, as paychecks are put on hold during the partial government shutdown. This is reportedly leading to longer lines and security problems at airports nationwide.According to CNN, Hundreds of Transportation Security Administration officers, who are required to work without paychecks through the partial government shutdown, have called out from work this week from at least four major airports...Read More
01.11.19- Americans Need a Congress that Represents Americans
US Senator Marco Rubio poses as a representative of Florida Republicans, but in truth he represents the interests of Israel. He is sponsor of legislation that punishes Americans who boycott Israel as their way of protesting Israel’s genocide of the Palestinian people. That Rubio is doing his best to dismantle what little is left of the First Amendment doesn’t seem to bother Florida voters or the presstitute media, who are no longer protective of the First Amendment. Read More
01.10.19- I fear for America - I pray for America
After President Trump’s tenure, whether it is four years or eight, America is a dead nation walking, a ghost of what once was in the fight between right and wrong and good and evil, as evidenced by Nancy Pelosi’s smile, full of malice and bad faith, like the smile on statues of the Aztec sun god, who demanded thousands of hearts to eat to prevent the end of the world. Read More
01.09.19- What Does a Bank Have to Do to Be Shut Down?
Call me crass, but I wasn’t shocked to learn last week that Wells Fargo & Company (WFC) had agreed to pay a $575 million fine to settle claims by all 50 states related to bogus account openings and forcing unneeded insurance policies on consumers with auto loans. That’s on top of the $1 billion fine the bank paid federal regulators last April for the same conduct.
Paying hefty fines for its outrageous practices is nothing new for WFC. In September 2016, the shelled out $185 million in fines and penalties when regulators discovered it had opened at least 1.5 million sham accounts and applied for 565,000 credit cards without permission of the customers that held them. That same month, the bank paid $24 million to settle claims that it had illegally repossessed the cars of military service members. Read More

01.07.19- Privatizing (Corporatizing) Warfare
Mr. G.P. spotted this important story from Russia's RT site, and passed it on. As you might have guessed from the title of today's blog, it has my high octane speculation motor running in overdrive, for earlier this week I blogged about Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s interview with Fox Network personality Tucker Carlson on the legal immunities afforded to the vaccine industry/Big Pharma, speculating on the possibility that some of his remarks during that interview might indicate that some sort of quiet "mafia war" might be taking place in the mafia mobocracy that is Globaloneyism.

(Natural News) I’ve been putting off writing about events to come in 2019 – 2020 for the simple reason that I don’t think anyone is mentally prepared to accept the level of chaos that’s coming. Perhaps 95% of the population doesn’t give a crap about anything other than their social media posts, celebrity news and fashion shows. Their ability to face reality on any subject — politics, finance, science, ecology, etc. — has collapsed to zero. For the remaining 5%, many of those people are too desperately clinging to financial survival to think seriously about preparedness or collapse. They are already in a collapse emergency of sorts, and they don’t have the mental bandwidth to handle even the thought of another crisis. Read More
01.03.19- The Coming Second Civil War
A new paradigm has become evident in both the demographics and the political landscape of 21st Century America. Our nation’s major political camps are becoming increasingly polarized. The differences between the more populous and liberal coastal regions versus the lightly-populated and conservative inland regions are growing more sharp with every passing year. In the long term, a clash of wills between the Red and the Blue is almost inevitable. Whether this will result in conflict or in eventual partition and accommodation remains to be seen. Trouble might occur as early as the year 2020. Or it might be a full generation away. But sooner or later, I can definitely see it coming. This rift might result in a Second Civil War. If and when it comes, this war will not be on racial lines nor on economic lines per se. Rather, It will be a war of world views. Read More
01.02.19- Exposing The Dick Cheney / Donald Rumsfeld Conspiracy
I went to go watch VICE – the story about how Dick Cheney took over the government with the aid of his wife – Lynne Cheney. Vice is a film that seeks to bring complicated information about the inner corruption in Washington and transform it into a digestible and entertaining format.
There is no question that Christian Bale delivered a very impressive performance of how Dick Cheney really is – a secretive and distant man whose eyes were always filled with naked contempt. Amy Adams gave a fantastic performance as well and captured the real character of the former Second Lady Lynne Cheney who was very much like her husband – ambitious, and equally just as ruthless.

“The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.”—Edmund Burke
