    This looks like an interesting piece of evidence when discussing the wildfires...Or so called wild fires all over the State of California. Basically all you have to do is search a California wildfires map in the last year or so and put the map of the proposed California high speed rail system continually being pushed by the far left government of California. What do you get when placing these images next to each other...Well it just so happens that the California wildfires happen to be all located along the proposed lines of the California high speed rail project.
  • Why ‘Hillary Clinton 2020’ would be doomed to fail the Democrats

    Speculation is mounting over whether Hillary Clinton will launch a bid for the White House in 2020. In a recent op-ed, her former long-term adviser Mark Penn claimed “Hillary will run again” at the next federal US election. “This new version of Mrs Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle — back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994,” he wrote in The Wall Street Journal. “True to her name, Mrs Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way...

    Armstrong Economics ^ | Nov 15, 2018 | Martin Armstrong
    The draft deal of Prime Minister May smells really bad. It is clear that politicians are clueless about trade and the U.K. remaining within the (EU) customs union forever is really going to economically tie Britain to the EU without a right to even vote. What they do not get is that trade in the EU is not negotiated with a single government. Every member gets to veto a trade deal which prevents the entire 28 member states from acting in their own self-interest. So Britain cannot cut a trade deal with the USA or China without EU approval. Then...

    When those on the far-Left bash POTUS Donald Trump as a “racist” for his calls to build a border wall and end so-called “sanctuary cities,” they are doing so in part as a means of distracting us from the myriad of criminal acts committed by illegals who have been released into society by Democratic policies. Just like their claims that there is no such thing as “voter fraud” are lies, so too are their claims that illegal immigrants don’t commit heinous criminal acts and those sanctuary city policies always benefit us. Take the case of Luis Rodrigo Perez, an illegal...

    Illinois Review ^ | November 14, 2018 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    As tempers flare in Washington this November, with the dust settling on late-night midterm results and vote fraud occurs in broad daylight… we see an unusual dispute in the news. This kerfuffle is between a major news source – CNN – and the White House. CNN’s reporter, Jim Acosta, refused to shut his mouth when his time was expired, and even shoved an intern out of the way for just doing her job. The White House had it with him, and revoked his press credentials - not CNN’s, just his. The reporter made more of the story than it was,...

    Yesterday an entire California town burned down. Paridise, CA has (had) 27,000 residents and over 1,000 buildings, and now it’s pretty much gone. A fire started nearby on a windy day and within hours everything was ash and cinders. That fire and several others are still expanding across the state, threatening tens of thousands of homes. The sets of the TV show WestWorld are gone. Malibu has been evacuated. And dry, windy conditions persist, so the story is nowhere near over. If this sounds familiar, it’s because massive, sometimes uncontrollable California wildfires are now an annual occurrence, due in part...

    J ust hours after Jeff Sessions resigned as attorney general last Wednesday at the president’s behest, #TheResistance found its newest target for destruction: Sessions’ interim replacement, Matthew Whitaker. Negative coverage about the acting attorney general has dominated national publications and cable news outlets. Reporters have portrayed Whitaker as a Trump lackey, a crackpot, and an “attack dog”; Democratic leaders are demanding that he recuse himself from overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation; on Tuesday, incoming House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) warned that if Whitaker fails to step aside from the probe, “his actions will be exposed.” (Of course,...

    “He asked us if the officer was dead. I responded with ‘I didn’t know.’ He put his head down and was crying. He said his intention was to kill the officer….He said that he was here for his mission — his mission was to kill a United States government employee. His mission was to kill and be killed. He said his mission was not over. He said he would have a better chance of success and enter into heaven. He said they needed to act against the enemies of Allah. He blamed the United States government for their support of...

So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.” She lied.

    The third attempt to form a government in Sweden since September's General Election failed by a 195-154 vote. The leader of the Moderate Party, leading party of the "Right" bloc, Ulf Kristersson proposed a government led by the Moderates and the Christian Democrats. In the end only the Sweden Democrats joined those two parties in support of his government with the "Left" bloc against and the two other "Right" bloc parties, the Center and Liberal parties, voting against the government. Now back to square one with perhaps the Social Democrats or the Center Party getting a shot a trying to...

    The Wichita Eagle ^ | November 13, 2018 | Jerry Siebenmark
    Spirit AeroSystems plans to add 320 new jobs as part of the construction of a new building at Air Capital Flight Line in south Wichita. The new jobs are part of an $18 million industrial revenue bond request from Air Capital that the Wichita City Council approved Tuesday. The bonds are essentially low-interest loans that companies have to repay. They are used for capital improvement projects. Air Capital was created by developers Johnny Stevens and Dave Murfin after they bought the Boeing Wichita property on south Oliver in 2014. Air Capital is located directly across Oliver Street from Spirit’s Wichita...

    A New Jersey manufacturing company is relocating its international headquarters to Seminole. S.S. White Technologies, which specializes in flexible shaft technology, moved into a 90,000 square foot facility at 8300 Sheen Drive. "Moving a manufacturing plant from New Jersey to Seminole was a huge task, but well worth it," said CEO Rahul Shukla in a release. "My only regret is that we didn't move to Florida many years earlier." Of the 116 employees at the new location, 80 were hired after the move. The company also has several open positions listed on its website. For more information, visit https://www.sswhite.net/now-hiring.

    President Trump on Wednesday expressed hope the White House would defeat CNN in a lawsuit over his decision to suspend the press credentials of reporter Jim Acosta, whom he called “bad for the country.” In an interview with The Daily Caller, Trump railed against Acosta, calling him a “rude” person whose “grandstanding” is unfair to the broader White House press corps. “I really think that when you have guys like Acosta, I think they’re bad for the country,” Trump told the conservative website. “He’s just an average guy who’s a grandstander who’s got the guts to stand up and shout.”...
  • A RUSH CALLER: Democrats May Be Losing It

    11/14/2018 10:55:33 AM PST · by DIRTYSECRET · 64 replies
    Anybody hear that fella call in a couple days ago? We're worried about stealing elections, Beto's close finish, and the loss of the house. The fact that they are doing all these crazy things like ballot counting past the deadline would suggest that they're the ones who may be finished. A Trump win in 2020(as most expect) gives them more reason to panic. The only thing left for them to do is riot. Are we too angry over McSally, a loser who will be GIVEN a January Senate seat only to lose again in 2020 or are the rats toast?

The 300 star narrated a “tour” of his former home in the video posted to his social media accounts.

    Back in the summer, it seemed that the Republican/conservative vision for higher education reform was building momentum. A House GOP bill called the PROSPER Act was on the verge of moving toward passage and education secretary Betsy DeVos was implementing regulatory changes meant to undo some Obama-era policies such as the “Gainful Employment” rule and aggressive Title IX mandates. Then, the landscape of higher education policy was dramatically changed in the 2018 midterm elections with the House of Representatives going to the Democrats. Politicians with a completely different approach to higher ed will now have a loud voice. The Republican/conservative...
