  • Liberals Are Everything They Say We Are

    If you want to know what liberals are up to, all you have to do is listen to what they’re accusing conservatives of doing. You’ve heard the news – Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to rig the election and steal it from Hillary Clinton, its rightful owner. Only it was the Democrats who did all of that, not that you’d know it from watching the news. In the last month that media narrative has been flipping on its head, which means it’s been fading from the news. That’s how it works. When something is bad for Republicans, all presses...

    Where did the USS Carl Vinson or the “armada” that was “steaming” full speed ahead toward North Korea disappear to? As I was looking over the news I was shocked to read it was on its way to the Sea of Japan. That is exactly where Vice President Pence is today. Pence did a wonderful and honorable job in South Korea for the American people. He spoke directly to the Kim Dynasty when he said “all options were on the table.” The Kim Dynasty also includes Lil’Kim’s sister, who has as much influence in North Korea as Kim. So President...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: What has happened basically is this. The Clinton campaign has sent marching orders to its Drive-By Media buddies to plaster, which they have done, since yesterday, story after story after story about Trump a liar. I mean, that's the basic premise. Donald Trump is a liar and Lester Holt needs to fact check him in the in the middle of the debate. Lester Holt needs to challenge Donald Trump on every lie he utters, and that's practically every time he opens his mouth. They are demanding this, and they're putting all kinds of pressure on Lester 'cause...
  • ‘Racist’ Trump - Racism in America

    09/03/2016 7:45:59 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 9 replies ^ | September 3, 2016 | Bryan Crabtree
    This past week has been interesting contrast of double-standards on race relations. Colin Kaepernick decided to kneel at a San Francisco 49ers football game during the National Anthem because ‘we’re an oppressive country.’ The media became outraged by Donald Trump’s tweet reacting to the death of Dwayne Wade's cousin who was shot and killed by two criminals on parole in Chicago. Hillary Clinton broke the news that Trump is a racist (for the 100th time) because of a 1973 case of housing discrimination which he settled a couple of years later. In Kaepernick’s case, liberals defended his right to freedom...

The CIA Coined the Term Conspiracy Theorist In 1967 That all changed in the 1960s. Specifically, in April 1967, the CIA wrote a dispatch which coined the term “conspiracy theories” … and recommended methods for discrediting such theories.  The...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) – Men who regularly posted photos of themselves online scored higher on a measure for narcissism and psychopathy. According to Medical News Today, a study out of Ohio State University has found that men who took “selfies” were more likely to exhibit psychopathic traits when compared to control group. “That makes sense because psychopathy is characterized by impulsivity. They are going to snap the photos and put them online right away. They want to see themselves. They don’t want to spend time editing,” explains Jesse Fox, lead author of the study. The study included 800 men...

    Anger and hate are the underlying problems that have resulted from the troubled childhood and teenage years of President Barak Obama, psychological problems that manifest as Obama destroys America’s traditional institutions. Dr. Paul Fick is a nationally prominent clinical and forensic psychologist who has studied Obama for four years, and is so concerned about his findings that he has published a detailed book in an effort to warn the public. The book, The Destructive President: Inside the Mind of Barak Obama, was recently self-published in digital format to make it available to the public as quickly as possible. It is...

    Getting inside the mind of Barack Obama has been a challenge for journalists since the 2008 presidential campaign. But during the last two and a half years, as the public has gotten more familiar with the president, the picture is becoming a bit clearer. On Thursday’s syndicated “Hugh Hewitt” radio show, columnist and National Review Online contributor Mark Steyn offered some thoughts. After host Hugh Hewitt referenced a Wednesday interview with Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe, in which he wondered aloud about what motivated Obama to make grand policy gestures, Steyn suggested that perhaps this was the first time Obama...

    When Lt. Col. Michael D. Holmes was assigned to the U.S.-led headquarters in Kabul responsible for training Afghan security forces, he assumed he would spend a year employing his skills as an information operations officer. Perhaps, he thought, he would work on ways to influence Afghans to join their army, or he would develop anti-Taliban propaganda. His superiors had different ideas. Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, who took over the training command just after Holmes arrived in November 2009, decided that information operations - defined by the Army to include psychological operations, electronic warfare and military deception - were not needed...

    The University of British Columbia ^ | June 30, 2010 | Media Release
    A new University of British Columbia study says that an overreliance on research subjects from the U.S. and other Western nations can produce false claims about human psychology and behavior because their psychological tendencies are highly unusual compared to the global population.According to the study, the majority of psychological research is conducted on subjects from Western nations, primarily university students. Between 2003 and 2007, 96 per cent of psychological samples came from countries with only 12 per cent of the world’s populations. The U.S. alone provided nearly 70 per cent of these subjects.However, the study finds significant psychological and behavioral...

    If you insult your wife or husband repeatedly, you could soon find yourself in court if you live in France. The charge? Psychological violence. That's what the new offence will be called if a bill backed by the government is passed by parliament. Once considered a purely private domain, rows between married or cohabiting couples could now prompt intervention from the state. The French government wants to take the controversial step of introducing a new law banning "psychological violence" between married couples or partners living together. But there are questions about how such an offence could be proved.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Psychological barriers like uncertainty, mistrust and denial keep most Americans from acting to fight climate change, a task force of the American Psychological Association said on Wednesday. Policymakers, scientists and marketers should look at these factors to figure out what might prod people take action, the task force reported at the association's annual convention in Toronto.

What you see will largely depend on where you live in the world. After you have examined the picture, scroll down for a more detailed explanation. So What Did You See? What is above the woman's head?

    Children Who Have An Active Father Figure Have Fewer Psychological And Behavioral Problems ScienceDaily (Feb. 15, 2008) — Active father figures have a key role to play in reducing behaviour problems in boys and psychological problems in young women, according to a review published in the February issue of Acta Paediatrica. Erikson's stages of psychosocial development Swedish researchers also found that regular positive contact reduces criminal behaviour among children in low-income families and enhances cognitive skills like intelligence, reasoning and language development. Children who lived with both a mother and father figure also had less behavioural problems than those who...

    Washington DC, Sep. 26, 2006 (CNA) - The next great frontier in law and culture, stemming from the same-sex marriage debate, is the legal redefinition of parenthood, says a new report issued by U.S. and Canadian family and law think tanks. The Revolution in Parenthood: The Emerging Global Clash Between Adult Rights and Children's Needs explores how the rights-based same-sex marriage movement places adult rights over the rights and needs of children. The report also explores the status of parenthood in society and the ways in which natural parenthood — the biological mother-father model — is being legally challenged and...
