    Obama's "echo chamber" lives on and the media are still buying... In an article on the Atlantic website, a former Obama White House staffer explains why she resigned from the Trump White House after only eight days. . . . Hers was the second story in less than a week in which a government official explained that they’d resigned because of Trump’s policies. Ned Price, a CIA analyst who worked at the Obama White House, authored a cri de coeur for the Washington Post to explain why his disagreements with Trump’s policies prompted him to leave government service. “To be...

    Your socially-engineered and indoctrinated kids will be dancing and singing in school praises to the Blue Zone Project. Is it Orwellian enough for you yet? The late Henry Lamb and Tom DeWeese have been working tirelessly for decades to unravel the thorny and terrifying tentacles of U.N.‘s Agenda 21, a soft law signed in 1992 by 178 countries. But the idea of a one world government/order has been around since the turn of the 20th century. It suffices to look at the back of a dollar bill to see the evidence. Featured prominently under the Masonic Pyramid are the Latin...
  • Democrats blame losses on lack of narrative, white votes

    The Democratic National Committee Saturday released a report blaming the lack of a central narrative and waning support from Southern, white voters for "devastating" losses in midterm elections and at the state level. “It is strongly believed that the Democratic Party is loosely understood as a long list of policy statements and not as people with a common set of core values (fairness, equality, opportunity),” said the long-awaited DNC autopsy of what went wrong for the party in 2010 and 2014. [Snip] Democrats, most recently President Obama, suggested that Americans side with liberals on most issues — they just say...

    Let’s review: The stock market is in free fall. The Islamic State is on the brink of taking Baghdad and Kobani. The Ebola crisis is spreading and seems on the verge of becoming a pandemic while the CDC is being unmasked as incompetent. The Iran talks are a charade and everyone expects that country to get the bomb. Our vaunted college campuses are transfixed by so-called micro-agressions and a supposed rape epidemic while banning the likes of Ayaan Hirsi Ali and George Will (!) from speaking — and they still cost nearly $70,000 a year. Our putative ally Turkey —...

    Everything that Barack Obama touches seems to turn to dross. Think of it for a minute. He inherited a quiet Iraq (no American combat deaths at all in December 2009). Joe Biden bragged of the calm that it would be the administration’s “greatest achievement.” But by pulling out all U.S. peacekeepers — mostly for a 2012 reelection talking point — Obama ensured an ISIS wasteland. He put his promised eye on Afghanistan at last, and we have lost more soldiers there than during the Bush administration and a Taliban victory seems likely after more than a decade of lost American...

    The story of the Catholic church in the United States has become a tale of two churches: In the Northeast and upper Midwest, the church is shrinking, and in the South and West, the church is flourishing and membership is increasing, in some cases dramatically. That's the conclusion demographers presented at a conference titled "The Catholic Parish in the 21st Century: Challenges and Opportunities [1]," held at Villanova University in early March. The conference was a joint venture of the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) at Georgetown University and Villanova's Center for Church Management and Business Ethics....

    The Obama Administration’s endorsement of a Swiss global oversight scheme for government defense and security contractors is a warning for not only the shooting industry, but for civil arms rights and democratic national sovereignty. Geneva --(Ammoland.com)- On August 16th 2013, the Obama Administration signaled tentative plans to support a new scheme to legally bind government contractors into complying with international humanitarian law, human rights law, arms control and disarmament law, as well as other requirements of the United Nations (UN) Security Council.[1] The scheme applies to private military and security services contractors (and their subcontractors) doing business with the United...

    The White House on Thursday is expected to unveil its proposal to enhance the nation's cybersecurity, laying out plans to require industry to better protect systems that run critical infrastructure like the electrical grid, financial systems and nuclear power plants. The Obama administration also is insisting that companies tell consumers when their personal information has been compromised. According to cybersecurity experts familiar with the plan, the administration's proposed legislation also would instruct federal agencies to more closely monitor their computer networks. Several House and Senate committees have been working on cybersecurity legislation for the past two years, while waiting for...

    In his five-page response to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools dated April 28, Superintendent Fred Sanderson states he has “genuine concerns” about the Cobb Board of Education’s ability to “govern effectively.” Sanderson’s letter, which was obtained by the Journal through an Open Records Request, addressed allegations about the school board’s ethics and leadership. The allegations against the board were sent in a letter addressed to Sanderson by Mike Bryans, the state director of AdvancED and SACS, on March 29. Sanderson had 30 days to respond to the accreditation agency. On the lightning-rod issue of newly elected board members...

    When Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president in January 1981, the country was at low ebb. Jimmy Carter had spent the four previous years running the nation into the ground, leaving unemployment above 10%, inflation above 15%, Communist operatives laughing at our perceived weakness, and Iranians holding 53 of our fellow citizens hostage for 444 days. When Republican Chris Christie was sworn into office as governor of New Jersey earlier this year, the situation he faced was somewhat similar. His predecessors, among them Democrat Jon Corzine, had run the state into the ground. Because of this, Christie literally inherited...

    Global governance is here! Hooray for Glenn Beck! Right out there in front of God and everybody, he talks about global governance as a real and present danger. But right on cue, progressive bloggers do their best to ridicule the idea with wisdom such as this: Seriously, for a moment. We're going to have to address the paranoia about a global takeover at some point – probably in easy-to-comprehend, Dick-and-Jane language – for the tea party. Could it be that these people really don't know that global governance is already here? As early as 1997, Gustave Speth, former head of...
  • Temporary Sales Tax Increase- Lack of Governance

    Now that the "temporary" sales tax is heading to the ballot, I think we must shine a light on the predicament we find ourselves in. The legislature kept referring to it as a revenue increase as if they were rolling out some new product line that would increase sales. Government of any kind, at any level, is not a revenue generator, they are overhead. In life you have the revenue generators (in this particular equation, you and me) and then you have the corporate office (the government bureaucracy). After closing my doors last year, I returned to work at a...

    Snippets: Former Vice President Al Gore, whose "An Inconvenient Truth" video epistle on the claims of global warming has not weathered recent scientific research, now has promised at a conference in the United Kingdom that the impending virtual energy tax under the U.S. "cap-and-trade" legislation will bring about "global governance." He cited the "cap-and-trade" legislation in the U.S. Congress that  by President Obama's own estimate would cause utility bills to skyrocket for American consumers. Those taxes are good, Gore said.

    Not all are enamored with President Barack Obama’s efforts to change US policy toward Europe. Especially miffed is French President Nicolas Sarkozy who expressed opposition and resentment over Obama’s attempt to oust him by naming his predecessor Jacques Chirac as the man he wanted to negotiate with on matters of state. For his part, Obama said he wasn’t trying to dictate who should be France’s president. “I tried to get this done through private communication and persuasion,” Obama explained. “I just thought that given our respective views, the relations between our two countries would proceed more smoothly if Chirac were...
