    There were six global Islamic jihad attacks in Israel over the weekend, a knife attack in a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota, and a bombing attack in the city of New York, with other bombs found in New York and New Jersey, and yet the elites in the media and the government who hold authority over us insist on covering up the truth and doing everything in their power not to admit that we’re at war with the global jihad. Of course, those in charge waste no time coming on the “news” to spew platitudes at us such as “if...

    People don't even think of the American dollar much. Punch a few buttons on an ATM, and twenties appear from a drawer. We don't think much beyond what cash dollars in our pockets can buy at a particular moment. In reality, cash represents freedom – a simple freedom that millions of people around the world don't enjoy while we take it for granted. Russian philosopher Fyodor Dostoevsky in the 1800s said, "Money is coined liberty."

    BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela – The hunt for food started at 4 a.m., when Alexis Camascaro woke up to get in line outside the supermarket. By the time he arrived, there were already 100 people ahead of him. Camascaro never made it inside. Truckloads of Venezuelan troops arrived in the darkness, arresting him and nearly 30 others seemingly pulled from the queue at random, according to his lawyer. Camascaro, 50, was charged with violating laws against interfering "directly or indirectly" with the production, transportation or sale of food. He has been in jail for three months, awaiting a hearing. “I went to...

    Its something most Americans don't think of... They don't realize that the government that rules their state and municipality is danger to them. Many don't realize the need to fear government. In fact many Americans today, thanks in part to brainwashing by public schools, revisionist history,  pop culture and other things welcome bigger and more powerful government. The government is worshiped by liberals and many mainstream Americans have been conned into worshiping this false idol, whether or not they know it. For many hapless victims, they find out too late to do anything to stop the government from robbing...

    I saw a news item on the morning MSM news about the sale of concert tickets. It seems that scalpers buy up many of the tickets withing minutes of them going on sale. The proposed solution was for Congress to create a law concerning the sale of concert tickets. That was probably the dumbest idea that I've heard since the last Slow Joe speech. The most simple and effective solution is for the public not to buy the scalped tickets. A few concerts with no scalped ticket proceeds and they would be out of business. However, the scalpers are counting...

    Twenty million dollars worth of cheese. That's how much of the good stuff the federal government plans to buy to ease America's massive cheese surplus. The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced this week it will purchase the nearly 11 million pounds of cheese for "private inventories." Before you get too excited about government-funded grilled cheese sandwiches, that means the cheese will go to food banks and charity groups around the country.

    As I recall from Gibbon, the Western Roman Empire went out with more of a whimper than a bang. By the time of Alaric and his Visigoths in 410 AD, Rome was so corrupt and weak there was little to stand in his way. In broad strokes it is fair to say that Roman society declined simultaneously with government. Long before the fall, Roman republican citizenship was a precious possession, a jewel of unsurpassed value. As such it was held closely and kept in short supply, for among other privileges, the Roman citizen wasn’t taxed. He was exempt from the...

The systemic violence being perpetrated by agents of the government has done more collective harm to the American people and our liberties than any single act of terror.

The U.S. Olympic Committee awards $25,000 for gold medals, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze. That’s not all. Olympians also have to pay tax on the value of the medals themselves. Gold and silver medals are made mostly of silver, while bronze medals are composed of mostly copper. Rio’s medals are among the largest and heaviest ever and contain about 500 grams of either silver or...

But the Justice Department's public integrity unit declined to pursue the probe given what it characterized as insufficient evidence, according to a CNN report Wednesday. The State Department's seemingly preferrential treatment of foundation donors under Clinton's leadership has raised questions about whether she and her aides ignored conflicts of interest in order to help the charity's most generous donors.

You might think that the decision about whether Medarva moves a couple of operating rooms ought to be up to Medarva, and you would be right about that—in theory.In Virginia, however, such decisions require the state's approval, because the state maintains a Certificate of Public Need (COPN) law.

    Our federal government was not assumed by royalty or nobility, but was created by the sovereign states. The creature and the limited delegated authority entrusted to it at creation cannot be superior in power to their creator. The federal government may be larger in size, but not necessarily greater in authority. Understanding this foundational principle and enforcing proper governmental boundaries are essential to protecting the people from the tyranny of a large, centralized government. America’s application of this principle is unique in that local elected officials are not considered lesser in terms of authority, but greater. For example, county sheriffs...

    Hillary Clinton likely dodged criminal charges Tuesday for a simple reason: the bar for bringing criminal charges against a politician, particularly a high public official, is so much higher than they are for anyone else. Prosecutions against such high public officials only go forward when there is “definitive” evidence. Evidence that prosecutors know will lead to a certain conviction. Why do I say that? Because earlier in my career I was chief economist at the United States Sentencing Commission. I worked frequently with prosecutors. The reputational loss public officials face from criminal charges can be so great that prosecutors feel...

London, where I spent a rather pleasant and rare sunny weekend with friends and colleagues, has gone from being ‘stupid’ pricey, to just plain absurd. Tube prices, taxi fares, food prices, restaurant bills, train fares… it all keeps going up. And to cap it all off, the British government’s VAT increases have ensured that absolutely everyone is paying a little bit more. Here in Lithuania, the buzz around town is the spiraling gasoline prices, which have...

There is one major problem with that proposal: It is potentially unconstitutional since it would take away a constitutional right—your Second Amendment right to bear arms—at the discretion of a government official in a secret, nontransparent process that has no adequate due process protections.

    WHAT MAKES A POLITICIAN By DH, 2016 Has anyone really stopped and analyzed why it seems like the higher in office an elected official gets the more power-hungry and corrupt they become? There are several reasons for this personality disorder and it all starts with their first victory in any level of the election process. 1. They want to make changes to the current administration, laws, rules, or the dictates thereof. 2. They are egotistical zealots and simply crave public adoration. 3. They know that public office means a path to wealth, riches and special favors from those they give...

    See Something, Say Nothing A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Govt. Submission to Jihad One day after a prominent U.S. Muslim leader reacted to the November 2015 Paris attacks with a declaration that the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, has nothing to do with Islam, President Obama made the same assertion. Who exactly is the enemy we face, not only in the Middle East but also within our borders? Is it “murderers without a coherent creed” or “nihilistic killers who want to tear things down,” as some described ISIS after 130 people were brutally slain and another 368 injured...

    Hang on tight. It's gonna be one helluva ride. Slippery Slope. Once you begin down it, the devastating consequences multiply quickly. In a society based on virtuous values and an understood moral code, a man and a woman get married, and they have children. The kids call their parents father and mother, or mom and dad. The parents teach the children their values, and the kids carry out what they learned when they become adults, and the cycle continues and continues as long as the society wishes to remain within those virtuous boundaries. Along the way there are always exceptions....

    Mical Caterina is addicted. When the Minnesota man turned 56, he headed to Brainerd International Raceway and raced his Mini Cooper on its road course. With GoPro cameras fastened to the front and back bumpers of his car, he created a video and posted it to YouTube. That got the attention of GoPro, which invited him to a seminar where he was given a drone, a Phantom manufactured by the Chinese company DJI. Caterina was instantly hooked.
  • Pelosi tells Apple, ‘you didn’t build’ the iPhone. The government did

    You didn't build that, someone else did. There aren’t’ too many devices that you can look at and instantly ‘get’ that they led to near-instantaneous changes in the way the world functions and behaves. Radios and TVs certainly did, as did the affordable automobile. We can toss in the microwave oven, the X-ray camera, and the personal computer as well. Most recently, the honor would have to go to the cell phone and, in particular, the iPhone. Apple’s baby is widely regarded as the most ubiquitous, and most forward-thinking, of the now borderline-essential cellular handsets. For better or worse, it’s...

    Time and again I hear the term, predatory capitalism. All the liberals love to whine about it, in their conversations they talk of how the little guy is being devoured and chewed up by the rich and the high and mighty and how those nasty republicans, (that's us!) are responsible in taking from the poor and giving it away to rich mostly white folks. They compare us to Hitler and say he was a capitalist, they say things are bad now all because of the GOP and not for Obama and the left. Meanwhile, these same leftists and nit pickers...

    Rising costs in Medicaid, Michigan's medical welfare program, are putting a strain on the state budget and crowding out funding for other priorities. When the state decided to allow more people to sign up for Medicaid — encouraged by President Obama's health care law — some officials said the move would save money. But more people signed up than expected, and the projected savings never came to be. Now, one state senator thinks the solution is to cut out the middleman and return to a simpler approach. The approach is "direct primary care," and the latest version of the state...
