  • US Spy Planes In Syrian Skies Russian Jets Blanket Syrian Airspace World War III.

    It seems the movements in Syrian skies are telling a story of an impending confrontation between the United States and Russia. Yes, the planes keeping watch over Syria belong to Russia, but Putin is Assads keeper. It is almost as if Assad is the child, and Putin is the father. Make no mistake about it, this looming war will be fought between the US and Russia. At this time, Iran is making decisions for Syria, as Assad is holed up in a Russian bunker. While Iran is filling Assads shoes, Russia is filling his skies. Russian jets have been routinely...

    Over the weekend, I was invited to attend and speak to the Patriots Movement Arizona MAGA Unity Rally in Phoenix, Arizona. Even though the capital of the Grand Canyon State is blue (same holds true for almost every capital in the country), Arizona is a red state, and it sure felt like one. Residents can open carry and concealed carry their firearms in most places. The gas is so much cheaper, as is the fast-food. Wherever I went, Trump supporters raved and rallied with us. Even in the capital, represented by two Congressional Democrats for the majority of the...

    Huggy Bear accused of improper and unwanted hugging. A new charge against an important elected official. This one stunned me so deeply I called his office because I have known Huggy Bear for 20 years and I could not imagine him doing anything untoward to a woman. I offered to defend him though he is of the other political persuasion. Huggy Bear is Bob Hertzberg, currently a state senator in California and former speaker of the Assembly. Everyone knows that Bob is a hugger. Bob would hug a parking enforcement person giving him a traffic ticket. One person I know...

    WASHINGTON -- "Sex is a beautiful thing." Remember that solemnity being intoned endlessly by the sex prophets of the '60s, '70s and '80s? Of course, the more recent prophets were preceded by the sexual psychopaths of the '20s and '30s. There is a long history to the absurdity of sexual utopia. Yet by the 1960s, the sex prophets were on the hem of marketing their balderdash to a mass market, and by the early days of the 21st century, they had their market. The "sex is a beautiful thing" crusaders had found their followers in the public school system, pop...

    A POWERFUL earthquake could strike the planet by FRIDAY because of planetary alignments, a self-styled tremor forecaster has warned. New age earthquake researcher Frank Hoogerbeets warned a major magnitude 7 quake could strike within two days. (snip) His latest video warning, also available on YouTube, said we entered a "critical period" on Monday this week, which will continue until Friday. He told "From August 28 to September 1 will be critical because of two planetary alignments, one of which is Jupiter-Mercury-Uranus. "In July the same planets aligned and a magnitude 7.7 earthquake was triggered within three days." Mr Hoogerbeets...

    NEW YORK (AP) Evangelical supporters of President Donald Trump on Monday requested a meeting with Pope Francis over a recent critical article in a Vatican-vetted journal. Johnnie Moore, a leader of Trumps evangelical advisory board and a spokesman for some of its members, said he sent the request to Rome in response to an article published last month that accused some American Catholics of building an alliance of hate with evangelicals who backed the president. The two authors of the piece are confidants of Francis. They published their article in the Jesuit journal La Civilta Cattolica, which is reviewed...

    Kathy Griffins recent ISIS-like outrage against President Trump justly sparked condemnations from both the Left and the Right, despite her subsequent attempts to transform herself from aggressor to martyr. Sadly, such a violent statement is simply par for the course these days. Yet if Trump really is the tyrannical fascist the Left believes him to be, then why should they not want to kill him? Sic semper tyrannis! Indeed, the American revolutionaries often declared that Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God. But using violence as an appeal to heaven is a last resort, a sign we have reached the...

    After just two months, there is no question that the Donald Trump presidency is an unmitigated disaster. The FBI is conducting an investigation to determine whether members of the Trump campaign cooperated with Russian efforts to help elect Donald Trump last year. This by itself is extraordinary and unprecedented. As Republicans noted last year, it is very difficult to have a presidential administration under FBI investigation. No one knows what the investigation will find, but what we already know is bad enough. Senior Trump advisors lied about their contacts with Russian officials; one, Michael Flynn, was forced to resign from...

    As college football ramps into bowl games and playoffs, fans are being exposed to teams they don't normally see because they are in different conferences and divisions. For example, North Alabama is playing Northwest Missouri for the division 2 national championship as I write. Another example, is the 2016 Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl which features North Carolina Central versus Grambling. During the game, announcers have cautiously walked into the phenomenon timidly referred to as HBCU. Those initials have become the preferred way of referring to a group of colleges known to be Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Oddly enough,...

    Oops! This leaked document from a major polling organization tells a different story. The Donald is killing it! Check out this leaked Public Policy Polling document describing the truth regarding what is really happening in the presidential race, in this case in Florida, which is a vitally important battleground state. The testimonial for PPP in the upper right hand corner of their website should tell you all you need to know about the biased, screwed up polling that has been going on in this race. The major polling organizations are clearly in the business of being paid to make a...

    Alvin Toffler, the far-seeing futurist who predicted humanity's rising anxiety with digital and technological progress in his hugely influential 1970 book "Future Shock," has died at the age of 87, his consulting company confirmed Wednesday. Toffler who is also credited with having coined the term "information overload" to describe people's struggle to keep up with exponentially expanding data died Monday night at his home in Los Angeles, Toffler Associates said in a statement it released at the request of Toffler's widow, Heidi Toffler. No cause of death was given. Alvin Toffler during a talk at the Astrobiology Roadmap...

    You may have noticed that pretty much everything Jorge Bergoglio says is a meaningless pastiche of drooling nonsense, punctuated by a core vocabulary of dogwhistle words, and for those of you who have actually heard him speak, the gutteral, slackjawed verbal tick, “Eehh?” You can tell who his drooling sychopants are, because they pick up and conspicuously litter their speech and writing with these dogwhistle words and phrases. For me, these words are now ruined – rendered totally unusable by Bergoglio and his fag toadies. Just as no more boys can ever be named “Adolf” (Sorry Coors family!), these words...

    Leading Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson believes that federal and state official overreacted in the case of Terri Schiavo, a Florida woman who died in 2005 as her husband and family battled over whether to keep her alive despite her vegetative state.The case roiled the state of Florida and sparked an emotional national debate about the ethics, politics and spiritual significance of her life and death.(snip)After speaking at a Republican Party conference here on Friday, a reporter asked Carson what he thought of the infamous case -- one that Bush speaks about occasionally as he mounts his own presidential campaign."We...

    Immigration issues have varying effects on the residents of the host countries. I'd like to visit a few of these effects and hopefully get some feedback. One thing that should be made clear is that the current migrant issue is not one of "people seeking asylum". We're talking about millions of people. This is not a family being perecuted and wishing to be exiled, this is much larger than that. Politicians/Religious Leaders keep referring to this issue as an Immigration Issue but that is not what this is at all. Immigration is when someone applies to another country for citizenship....

    The First Tier: Wisconsin governor Scott Walker. Forget everything youve heard about him being uncharismatic or a boring speaker he wowed the crowds in Iowa this weekend. Hes in the sweet spot, serious and accomplished enough for the Establishment, and indisputably conservative enough for the grassroots. (Rush Limbaugh just declared, Scott Walker is the blueprint for the Republican party if they are serious about beating the Left.) Hes been tested like few others in the field; the Left threw everything it had at this guy and hes still going strong. Florida senator Marco Rubio. Watch him tear into the...

    Antarctic sea ice reached a record high this year, topping 20 million square kilometers (nearly 8 million square miles) in September a milestone it hadn't touched since 1979. It's a fact climate change deniers are fond of repeating. If the planet is warming, shouldn't sea ice be melting away rather than growing? It's true that the phenomenon is a confusing one but it's no proof that climate change isn't happening. In fact, scientists believe that climate change is actually responsible for the strange events down in the Antarctic. The first thing to note is that sea ice and...

    People who see the world through the lens of domestic politics label ObamaCare as Barack Obamas signature achievement. They are wrong. Obama has had a much greater, and more ominous achievement in the geopolitical arena. What did Obama really have in mind when he told Medvedev that after his re-election he would have greater flexibility? As he assumed office, the world was uni-polar and the US was the sole superpower. Five years into his Presidency, Iraq is reverting to sectarian warfare and becoming an Iranian client state. Afghanistan is slipping away as fast as American troops are leaving. Egypt was...

    (With apologies to Poor Richard's Almanac -- and a colonial printer named Ben Franklin.) How to cook pasta: The trick is to keep stirring. Whether it helps the pasta is a secondary consideration. The primary purpose is to clear the mind. It gives the cook one simple thing to concentrate on after a day spent dealing with trivia. All of that goes away as you watch and wait for the water to reach a rolling boil before adding the pasta and then slowly, gently whirling it, first clockwise, then counter-clockwise, then back to ... and all things extraneous evaporate, like...
