  • Judgmental, Tyrannical Buttigieg

    04/22/2019 4:01:27 AM PDT · by Kaslin ^ | April 22, 2019 | Arthur Schaper
    South Bend, Indiana Mayor Peter Buttigieg has roared into the spotlight since he flirted—then announced—his presidential bid. He checks off an interesting set of identity political markers: young, gay, but also a white Mid-westerner who might, just might, appeal to the still important white, male, blue collar voting bloc, the one which propelled Trump from reality TV outsider to White House insider. “Make the Midwest Gay, Left-Leaning, Democratic!” is the silent mantra of the radical Democratic Party.Buttigieg announced his homosexual leanings to his fellow residents in 2015. He had become a superstar in Democratic circles much earlier than that. In...
  • Todays Conflict Between Fellow Christians Has To Do With Support

    04/22/2019 3:43:15 AM PDT · by Kaslin ^ | April 22, 20109 | Scott Morefield
    I grew up attending a Fundamental, Independent Baptist church, and no, those aren’t capitalized by mistake. That’s because the words “Fundamental” and “Independent” were displayed prominently on our sign, our church bulletin, and anywhere else the church name appeared. It wasn’t just that we were “Baptist,” or even a “church” – because any ragamuffin group of heretics could band together and call themselves a “church” in these United States – no, we wanted the world to know we were “independent” of any top-down control, and we believed we had the “fundamentals” of the Christian faith. Of course, those were the...

    I dare Nancy Pelosi to impeach Donald Trump.All decent people agree that impeachment is a moral necessity. It was a smokescreen that the prosecutor the libs squeed over and his flock of slobbering Democrat donors and activists could not manage to find Schiff showing Trump was guilty of anything! It was part of the giant conspiracy to hide the manifest, obvious, totally-a-thing TREASON TRAITOR COLLUSION EMOULUMENTS reality! And the Democrats know it’s true because the Voices tell them.So many Voices, not just on cable news but echoing around inside their heads, whispering TREASON. TRAITOR. COLLUSION. EMOULUMENTS.Listen to the Voices, Democrats. Impeach...

    At the start of the year, economists predicted an economic slump ahead. President Trumps already low approval ratings were plunging. The Mueller report would threaten his presidency. And Democrats, we were told, would be driving the agenda for the next two years over a crippled presidency. Its four months later and, if anything, the opposite has occurred on every front. The economy appears to be gaining strength. Trumps approval rating is rising. The Mueller report was a dud. And House Democrats are fighting among themselves. On the economy, the consensus earlier in the year was for the GDP to barely...

    Everyone has their favorite candy for the different holidays, but it appears nothing satisfies people quite as much as the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. A RetailMeNot survey shows 32% like Reeses Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs the best. Next up on the list are Cadbury Creme Eggs and jelly beans, with 17% and 16% respectively. The survey says 10% say chocolate bunnies are best, but only 6% picked Peeps.

    COLOMBO, Sri LankaSri Lankan officials believe an Islamist militant group was behind the Easter morning attacks that killed at least 290 people and wounded another 500, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne told reporters. Officials had said previously that another country had warned that the group, known as National Thowheed Jamath, was planning attacks in Sri Lanka, but the warnings werent specific enough to effectively act on and didnt include hotels or tourist sites as potential targets. Mr. Senaratne said there is no specific evidence connecting the group to the bombings, but that authorities see it as the most likely organizer. He...

  • Electric vehicles emit more CO2 than diesel ones, German study shows

    Brussels Times ^ | April 17, 2019 | Oscal Schneider
    When CO2 emissions linked to the production of batteries and the German energy mix - in which coal still plays an important role - are taken into consideration, electric vehicles emit 11% to 28% more than their diesel counterparts, according to the study, presented on Wednesday at the Ifo Institute in Munich. Mining and processing the lithium, cobalt and manganese used for batteries consume a great deal of energy. A Tesla Model 3 battery, for example, represents between 11 and 15 tonnes of CO2. Given a lifetime of 10 years and an annual travel distance of 15,000 kilometres, this translates...

    Weeks after the collapse of the summit between Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, the North Korean leader finally broke his silence. In a speech heavily focused on foreign affairs delivered to the Supreme Peoples Assembly North Koreas pro forma parliament Kim made clear his position. He said that a third summit with Trump wasnt off the table just yet, but getting there would require evidence that the U.S. position on sanctions relief more seriously. To this end, Kim also echoed a message he had originally delivered during his New Years Day address: that...

    Arab leaders are pressuring the Palestinian Authority to accept the peace plan drawn up by the Trump administration, which is expected to be released this June, a source within the Palestinian Authority claims. According to a report over the weekend by the Qatari Alkhaleej Online outlet, a member of the Central Committee of PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas ruling Fatah party said that Arab leaders are applying political and financial pressure on the Palestinian Authority to accept the so-called Deal of the Century a framework for a final status agreement between Israel and the PA drawn up by the White...
  • Machiavelli - Dealing with the Deep State Aristocracy

    ArticleVBlog ^ | April 22nd 2019 | Rodney Dodsworth
    America doesnt have a classic aristocracy. But, does it have an order set above the people? In Chapter IX of The Prince, Niccolo Machiavelli paused for a moment from advising kings who clawed their way to the crown through crimes and violence. Instead, in the constitutional principality, citizens elect one of their fellows to the kingship. Mentally replace the words aristocracy/nobility with Deep State when reading Chapter IX, and this lesson is as pertinent today as it was in the early 16th century. In the constitutional principality, Machiavelli observed that one of two groups of citizens make the new prince:...

    The Sri Lankan police have arrested 24 people in connection with a series of devastating suicide bombings at hotels and churches on Easter Sunday that left nearly 300 people dead and more than 500 injured. No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but a police officer alerted security officials in an advisory 10 days ago about a threat to churches from a radical Islamist group, National Thowheeth Jamaath. The authorities, however, failed to act on the information, government officials said. A nationwide curfew was lifted on Monday morning, but major social media and messaging services, including Facebook...
  • Canada: Muslim deemed high risk to public safety to be released, must reach out to an imam

    Canada: Muslim deemed high risk to public safety to be released, must reach out to an imam The Canadian authorities assume that the imam will deradicalize Kevin Omar Mohamed. What is their basis for this assumption? They are sure that Islam is a religion of peace that young Kevin Omar has simply misunderstood, and that the imam will put him back on the straight path. They do not dare to consider the possibility that Kevin Omar Mohamed may have been radicalized by reading the violent exhortations of the Quran (kill them wherever you find them, 2:191, 4:89, cf. 9:5) and...

    U.S. Intelligence Institutionally Politicized Toward Democrats Former CIA analyst says agencies dominated by liberals BY: Bill Gertz April 18, 2019 5:00 am The CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies have become bastions of political liberals and the pro-Democratic Party views of intelligence personnel have increased under President Donald Trump, according to a journal article by a former CIA analyst. John Gentry, who spent 12 years as a CIA analyst, criticized former senior intelligence leaders, including CIA Director John Brenan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former deputy CIA director Michael Morell, along with former analyst Paul Pillar, for breaking...
