    In 2013, John Podesta was paid $87,000 by a shadowy foreign billionaire whose passion is preventing energy exploration on American land. Just two years later, Podesta is a member of President Obama’s inner circle, and the driving force inside the White House to block 12 million acres of land in Alaska’s Artic National Wildlife Refuge from oil drilling. The circumstances suggest Podesta may have run afoul of Obama’s highly-touted ethics pledge, which requires political appointees to disqualify themselves in matters relating to the interests of a former employer or client. Podesta — who is preparing to leave the White House

    At 7:50 am Friday morning, CNNMoney reported on the embarrassingly small number of jobs the “green” energy industry has contributed to the nation’s workforce. The story was titled “‘Green’ jobs just a small portion of workforce.” -------- “As Kermit knows, it’s not easy being green,” the story began. “There were only 3.1 million green jobs in the U.S. in 2010.” Translation: After receiving billions in federal subsidies ($100 billion from the stimulus program alone), “green” jobs account for only 2.4 percent of the nation’s employment. Seeing as how taxpayer dollars are being thrown at “green” energy projects under the guise...

As he was speaking to veteran protester Miles Kristan about their understanding, the chief asked our reporter to leave. “You told me you were going to help me with this,” Tubbs is overheard saying to...

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai issued perhaps the strongest response, saying Friday, “The hands that permitted themselves to harm what is holy and important to the people of Israel should be chopped off.” The Labor party called for a harsh response as well. “The murder of Rabin and the memorial are a national symbol that reminds us that extremism and violence are a threat to Israeli...

    A team of researchers believes it has found proof that the Soviets-Russians hid information on Raoul Wallenberg It has long been suspected that Russia has deliberately concealed information on the fate of Raoul Wallenberg, the courageous Swedish diplomat who rescued thousands of Hungarian Jews during the Holocaust. Wallenberg was arrested in Budapest after Soviet troops entered the city in 1945 and never seen again. The Soviet Union claimed alternatively that he had died or had been executed shortly afterwards. Former Soviet prisoners testified that they saw him alive during the 1980s when he was merely identified by number rather than...

We have said repeatedly to expect the cartel to become more and more like a caged animal as the silver manipulation end game nears.

President Obama has a long history with several radical groups, including the Communist Party USA.

It seems they are even willing to censor or alter their own publications to hide evidence of their past support for the President. Thankfully "wayback" provides proof positive...

This finding contradicted the Obama Administration’s claim that massive subsidies for wind and solar energy would create jobs.

Thanks to it, the charges against Glover were dropped and all but one of his firearms returned.
