  • Facebook Will FORCE All Users To Accept Being TRACKED Around The Internet

    Shtf Plan ^ | 04/19/18 | Mac Salvo
    Facebook has finally responded to requests to stop tracking users for advertising. But they aren’t going to. Instead, Facebook is going to force all of those who continue to use their social media service to accept being tracked around the internet. “People can choose to not be on Facebook if they want,” said Facebook Deputy Chief Privacy Officer Rob Sherman. Or, they will be forced to opt into being tracked everywhere they go, and that’s just the way it is. This decision was not made in the interest of the users of Facebook, but explicitly to keep the company’s business model “intact,”...

    .... Above is a global map of Mars, showing its largest and well known geological features...smaller than Earth, its lack of oceans means that Mars actual dry surface has about the same square footage as the continents of Earth. It is a vast place. Getting a close look at every spot is going to take many decades of work, and probably wont be finished until humans are actually walking its surface... ...lets pick a spot to the west of Olympus Mons, the solar systems largest volcano, and between Tharsis Montes, the string of only slightly smaller giant volcanoes to the...

    Ed.

And YES, Mr. Cooperman has been there and seen the over-populated, progressive wasteland which Africa has become, thanks to the self-serving munificence of the global, bleeding-heart left.

  • Comey Throws Obama And Lynch Under The Bus

    Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly takes aim at President Obama and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for complicating the investigation into Hillary Clintons private email server in his upcoming book, A Higher Loyalty. While Comey strongly defended his FBI team against any personal political motivations, the passages show a different point of view regarding Obama and Lynch, whom he believes both jeopardized the credibility of his investigation with their statements prior to its conclusion. Contributing to this problem, regrettably, was President Obama, writes Comey, according to a pre-release copy obtained by the Washington Examiner. Describing Obama as a very...

    Two polls released Sunday reveal President Trump's approval rating is at its lowest point since his inauguration in January 2017 as the country reignites its debate over gun control reform. Only 38 percent of people surveyed by USA Today and Suffolk University's Political Research Center approve of Trump's job performance a year into his presidency, while 60 percent disapprove of his leadership of his administration. ... CNN's survey, put in the field by SSRS, found 35 percent back Trump's job performance, whereas 58 percent do not.

    This is not fiction… It’s not a conspiracy theory… It’s a plausible explanation for a mysterious event that actually happened. On the evening of May 28, 1993, an enormous blast rocked the Australian Outback. It measured 3.9 on the Richter scale and sent shock waves out hundreds of miles. Truck drivers and gold prospectors in the area saw the dark sky light up with a bright flash. I only heard about the incident last year, when Doug Casey and I met a shadowy figure with deep connections to the US government in a café in Kiev, the capital of...

    By Philip Cottraux I had another blog planned for this week; but with the terrible tragedy that happened in Florida, I feel the need to try to inject common sense into the inevitable controversy surrounding gun ownership and its role in the recent rash of mass shootings. I was a high school freshman when the Columbine massacre happened, and experienced firsthand the devastating effects it had on schools nationwide. But the spiritual sickness infecting the US was never addressed, and what was rare then has now become a sad epidemic. We are now living in a world where mass killings...

    Ammoland ^ | 31 January, 2018 | Dean Weingarten
    In early 2016, Chauncy G. Goodrich and his family started having problems with a young bull moose on their property near Pinedale, Wyoming.They were repeatedly chased by the moose. They tried various non lethal methods to haze the moose away. They worked for a short period, but the bull continued to hang around the area. By July of 2017, the non-lethal methods were exhausted and/or were no longer effective. Chauncy took a 7 mm Magnum with him as a precaution when he attempted to chase the moose off his property and away from his wife and young children.The bull...

    We've seen some mouse guns out in the wild internet. Many people have made some really nice authentic looking replicas like the 1911 and Glocks. But its not too often that you find one that can actually shoot a .22 bullet. In this video from DonP Facebook, looks like a mini-mouse gun that you would see in the Cannon Fodder video games. This mini-mouse gun does pack a bang. Chalk another one up for the collectors bin. This thing is really amazing at such small scale that can pack a loud bang. See the full footage of this small pistol...

    Whispers are rampant throughout D.C. that a vacancy is imminent on the U.S. Supreme Court - one that is currently taken by one of the most liberal members of the Court. It has the Trump White House giddy over the prospect of potentially and forcefully shifting the balance of power on the Court while Democrats in Congress are said to be warning White House staff of a prolonged and brutal fight should President Trump attempt to replace a liberal Justice with a hardline-conservative nominee. The reason for the Justice's alleged departure is said to be "ongoing illness/physical limitations." The first...

Theres still gamesmanship going on.

    We pretty much already knew it, but now he's come out and said it himself -- Donald Trump is not a feminist. British news host Piers Morgan tweeted a quote from his recent interview with the Prez, in which Trump apparently says, "No, I wouldn't say I'm a feminist. I mean, I think that would be, maybe, going too far. I'm for women, I'm for men, Im for everyone." BREAKING NEWS: President Trump has declared he is NOT a feminist. He tells me: No, I wouldn't say I'm a feminist. I mean, I think that would be, maybe, going too...

  • (IS DACA) Donald Trumps Read My Lips Moment? (YES)

    The Democrats well remember their success in baiting George H. Bush into alienating his base by persuading him to renege on his campaign pledge: Read my lips no new taxes! Well the new taxes came, the already suspicious base could no longer rationalize to themselves that Bush would continue the Reagan legacy, and Bush was a single-term President. His successor being none other than Bill Clinton. If granting amnesty to illegal aliens who are trespassers in this land does not equate to a read my lips level betrayal, its hard to imagine what would be. The White...

    The Red Carpet at this Sundays Golden Globes will be a little more monochromatic than in years past. Many Hollywood actresses will don black to send a message of solidarity with victims of sexual harassment. The #MeToo movement of last October has generated a new initiative, Times Up, which will include a legal defense fund and advocate for legislation combatting workplace harassment. The message the women of Hollywood and Times Up wish to send: Times up for those who engage in sexual misconduct. But is it? Until our society recognizes and decries the harms of Internet pornography and the hypersexualization...

Of all the ways the United States could support the protesters, what pops into Kaines cranium? Yup, as Kaine tweeted [emphasis added]: Big step US could take to support democracy movement in Iran: Drop the Iranian travel ban. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Car bomb kills journalist behind Panama Papers offshore tax evasion investigation 'days after she received threats to her safety' (Full Title) A journalist who led the Panama Papers offshore tax evasion expose was killed today when a bomb blew up her car. Investigative reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia - dubbed a "one-woman WikiLeaks" - was killed as she was driving near the village of Bidnija in northern Malta. She had filed a complaint to police a fortnight ago after receiving personal threats to her safety, local media said. Caruana Galizia ran a hugely popular blog relentlessly highlighting cases of alleged corruption,...

    When we gather together this Christmas, its going to be super-awkward since everybody is dead because Donald Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Scam, repealed net neutrality, and cut taxes. The depredations of Genghis Khan, the Black Plague, and the repeal of the Obamacare mandate these are pretty much the same thing. Santa Claus and all of our dreams are dead too. On the plus side, since we are all dead theres no one to make egg nog, which is the worst of all possible nogs. You know what these eggs need? Some milk. And then rum. No....
