    America is the greatest country on the face of the earth. The greatest of all time. In the entire history of the world — there has never been a country so great. Science proves it. History proves it. It is beyond debate. Therefore, let us celebrate the 50 most American things of all time. WATCH:
  • US named one of the top ten 'most dangerous countries for women' (So, why are women still coming?)

    A study released by the Thomson Reuters Foundation reveals that, for the first time, the United States has been named one of the top ten most dangerous countries for women. The mirth is entirely unintentional, even though it's hard to believe that someone isn't pulling the leg of the international community. The study asked 550 "women's experts" which countries are the "most dangerous for women and which country was worst in terms of health care, economic resources, cultural or traditional practices, sexual violence and harassment, non-sexual violence and human trafficking," Leading the list is India, with its rape gangs...

    A study that ranked all 50 states from “most patriotic” to “least patriotic” also found that, overall, red states were more patriotic than blue states (states were considered “red” or “blue” based on how they voted in the 2016 presidential election). Using data from the 2016 election and several additional sources, WalletHub measured the impact of 13 different indicators, from voter engagement to volunteer rates and the percentage of the population that joined the military.

    HAPPIER ABROAD  Why You Will Have A Better Love and Life Beyond America     What immigrants and foreigners say about America that you never hear in the US media  "The biggest culture shock that people experience in the US is not between their country and the US but between what they thought the US would be and what it actually is." – Ladislav, my Expat Advisor In reality, there are few redeeming qualities to living in America other than making money and consuming.  Besides that, the rest is mostly fake and artificial.  This is well known to many foreigners, immigrants and...

    The migrant violence that is becoming a feature of daily life in Sweden, Germany, France and elsewhere in Europe is now coming to the United States. Did we think we would be immune? Maine’s Sun Journal reported last week that a “melee” broke out near Kennedy Park in Lewiston, Maine, initiated by “at least two dozen teenagers, preteens and adults.” This mob was made up of Somali Muslim migrants: News Center Maine reports: “[A]ccording to family members, the fight was between white and Somali members of the Lewiston community.” Our immigration chickens are, as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright would say,...
  • He Predicted Trump Would Be President 6 Years Ago, Here's Why This Prophet Says Trump Is in for Two

    CBN news ^ | 16 December, 2017 | Wendy Griffith
    In November of 2016, the world witnessed what many said was impossible: Donald Trump elected President of the United States. Nearly every poll predicted his defeat but when the electoral map flipped red in the final hours, one man says he'd always known Trump would win. His name is Mark Taylor, coauthor of The Trump Prophecies, who says nearly everything God told him is coming to pass. 'You're Hearing the Voice of a President' In April of 2011, Taylor, a retired firefighter from Orlando, Florida, was watching the news when then businessman Donald Trump came on the screen. "I didn't...

    You all have your reasons. Some are furious about domestic policies that lock child asylum seekers in cages. For others, it’s a foreign policy that supports Russia and denigrates allies. Maybe it’s just the man himself, who boasts of assaulting women. Or, it might even be the tariffs, sparking unnecessary trade wars that are killing jobs in the U.S. and abroad. Whatever the reason, you’re reading this because you want to hit back and hurt Trump in the only place he cares about – his wallet. Here’s how:

    This is an excellent video that inspires patriotism, respect for our flag, and love for our people. Perhaps this video could help to motivate the base? This would be ideal to be shown at upcoming Trump rallies. Anyone have suggestions of how to pass message along to Trump rally organizers, I'd appreciate it. Please share with family and friends as Independence Day approaches!
  • Why are deaths among U.S. kids, teens on the rise?

    A perfect storm of murder, addiction and carelessness has fueled a recent and troubling increase in deaths among U.S. children and teens, a new government report shows. The total death rate for those aged 10 to 19 rose 12 percent between 2013 and 2016, mostly due to an increase in deaths from accidental injury, homicide and suicide, researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found. In short, the United States is becoming less safe for teenagers. The primary causes of injury deaths were motor vehicle accidents, suicide, firearms-related murders and drug overdoses, the report discovered. "For children...

    Canada filed a challenge to the U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum with the World Trade Organization on Friday and said it will request a Chapter 20 panel under the North American Free Trade Agreement on Friday in response to the U.S. move. "These unilateral tariffs, imposed under a false pretext of safeguarding U.S. national security, are inconsistent with the United States international trade obligations and WTO rules," Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said in a statement. "Canada will closely collaborate with the European Union, which also filed a WTO challenge today, as well as with other like-minded countries, on opposing...

He has been in pre-trial detention since 2016.It also faults NATO ally Turkey...

Melvin did not specify which players he spoke to, or what other forms of protesting they were considering.

    The Democrats are having a major case of the sadz, and it’s hilarious. Their generic lead in the midterms ballot has evaporated. After the Iran and North Korea triumphs, Obama’s legacy is just a smoking ruin of broken dreams and corrected failures. And Stormy Daniels’s cheesy reign on CNMSNBC has morphed into a rain of singles from leering weirdos at creepy places with names like “The Treasure Chest” and “Reliable Sources.” So what do the liberals do when they are losing the all the big fights? They try to score points by taking some conservative scalps, which should thrill...

    Donald Trump has gotten the rawest deal in the past 50 years. This observation comes from over 50 years of listening and observing, in an out of government. A quick trip through time should make that point—and others. Since 1968, I’ve worked for every president—that’s eight— except Obama & Trump. Alas, my labors—at least initially—were at such low levels, there were none lower. After service as an Army intelligence linguist and analyst in support of LBJ’s questionable geopolitical instincts, I worked as an investigator for the US Civil Service Commission, now OPM, the government’s central personnel agency. Working the...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton didn’t pull any punches on Thursday, telling a Chicago audience that in America today “truth, facts and reason” are under siege, and “racist and white supremacist views” are finding an ear in the media and the White House. Clinton returned to her hometown to both receive an award and help raise money for a political action committee aimed at bolstering African-American women in politics — and to blast her take on Donald Trump’s America. “We are living in challenging times. We’re living through a war on truth, facts and reason, watching as racist and white supremacist views...

    We recently talked about South Carolina and their ongoing discussions of a “trigger” system which might allow them to declare that they were seceding from the country if Second Amendment rights are infringed. While this is still little more than a thought experiment in my opinion, I offered the following thoughts on how the country is looking more and more like a nation divided, possibly beyond the point of reconciliation. “This is almost entirely a cultural divide. You can easily pick out the issues of the day and see how the various state legislatures have divided into two camps,...

    A 2016 article by the American Journal of Medicine claims that homicide rates in the U.S. are 7 times higher than an average of other “high income countries.”  This conclusion is based on a select list of OECD nations compiled in 2010.  The lowest income nation on the list is Hungary, where per capita GDP is $28,000 per year.  Turkey and Mexico did not make the cut because their per capita GDPs are respectively $25,000 and $19,000.  Latvia and Estonia are not on this list, presumably because Latvia joined the OECD in 2016 and Estonia joined in December of...

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Thursday she shares incoming national security adviser John Bolton’s disdain for the world body and believes the two will work well together. Bolton, who was U.S. envoy to the United Nations for President George W. Bush, will become President Donald Trump’s national security adviser on Monday. He once said it would make no difference if 10 floors were knocked off the U.N. headquarters in New York. “I know John Bolton well. I have gotten advice from him, I have talked to him. I know his disdain for the U.N. I...

    Breaking news from 100 years ago: Russia wants to meddle in our affairs. After a century of Soviet efforts to infiltrate our government agencies, our nuclear and technology programs and institutions in our country from cultural to political, Robert Mueller’s assertion that Russian operatives posted Facebook ads to taint the 2016 elections is pretty pathetic. Mueller alleges, "The nationals had a strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 U.S. presidential election." Well, the entire Russian hierarchy has been thus engaged since its inception. It’s ironic that the Democrats have finally latched onto something they can demonize...

    Leaked audio recordings said to be of Russian mercenaries in Syria capture expressions of lament and humiliation over a battle in early February 2018 involving US forces and Russian nationals. Published by Polygraph.info — a fact-checking website produced by Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, news organizations that receive funding from the US government — the audio recordings paint a picture of Russian mercenaries essentially sent to die in an ill-conceived advance on a US-held position in Syria. Polygraph says the audio recordings are from a source close to the Kremlin. ... First clip: “The reports that are...
