  • Chris Cuomo Tells Netanyahu: Israel Needs to “Come Clean” and be “Honest” about its Nukes

    If Chris Cuomo had been around during WWII, would he have been telling FDR and Churchill that they needed to disclose their D-Day plans? Maybe so, judging by Cuomo’s absurd questioning of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu on CNN this morning. Cuomo suggested to Netanyahu that Israel needs to “come clean” and be “honest” about its nuclear weapons capabilities if it expects Iran to do the same. [snip] But the bigger point is that Israel is effectively at war with Iran and other countries in the Middle East. It is a tiny nation surrounded by hostile powers. Why would Israel, why...

    Here are 36 reasons why I would not be surprised if Obama wanted Iran to destroy Israel I have a crazy conspiracy, for which I have no proof, and for which I could be completely wrong: Obama’s #1, long term, biggest goal as President, which supersedes anything else, is that he wants to help Iran get enough uranium to build enough nuclear bombs to destroy Israel. Here are 36 reasons why I would not be surprised if it turned out that Obama really did want Iran to use nuclear bombs to destroy Israel:1) When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, Obama...

    NY TIMES LOL ^ | a fool named Jason Barker
    <p>SEOUL, South Korea — On May 5, 1818, in the southern German town of Trier, in the picturesque wine-growing region of the Moselle Valley, Karl Marx was born. At the time Trier was one-tenth the size it is today, with a population of around 12,000. According to one of Marx’s recent biographers, Jürgen Neffe, Trier is one of those towns where “although everyone doesn’t know everyone, many know a lot about many.”</p>

    Perhaps the greatest thing about one of our side’s many decisive victories last week – and there were a lot of victories – is that now liberals have to refer to my friend Ric Grenell as “Ambassador.”Or better yet, as “Your Excellency.”But it isn’t just that America got one of its best diplomats – finally – on the job in Germany, that obscure, insignificant Upper Volta of Europe (I am a conservative traditionalist, so Burkina Faso will always be Upper Volta). It’s that in fighting his confirmation, the Democrats again highlighted their moronic intersectional hypocrisy to voters who may...

    Yesterday, two events happened which absolutely confirm -with demonstrable certainty- what we immediately saw over 15 months ago. The first event was the appearance of James Comey on CNN to discuss his book. In part of the questioning by Jake Tapper, Comey admitted his January 6th briefing of the Steele Dossier content was ONLY about the Russian hookers, pee-tapes, and ridiculous sexual accusations against the President-elect.

    Facebook has finally responded to requests to stop tracking users for advertising. But they aren’t going to. Instead, Facebook is going to force all of those who continue to use their social media service to accept being tracked around the internet. “People can choose to not be on Facebook if they want,” said Facebook Deputy Chief Privacy Officer Rob Sherman. Or, they will be forced to opt into being tracked everywhere they go, and that’s just the way it is. This decision was not made in the interest of the users of Facebook, but explicitly to keep the company’s business model “intact,”...

    .... Above is a global map of Mars, showing its largest and well known geological features...smaller than Earth, its lack of oceans means that Mars’ actual dry surface has about the same square footage as the continents of Earth. It is a vast place.

    Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly takes aim at President Obama and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for complicating the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server in his upcoming book, “A Higher Loyalty.” While Comey strongly defended his FBI team against any “personal political motivations,” the passages show a different point of view regarding Obama and Lynch, whom he believes both “jeopardized” the credibility of his investigation with their statements prior to its conclusion. “Contributing to this problem, regrettably, was President Obama,” writes Comey, according to a pre-release copy obtained by the Washington Examiner. Describing Obama as a “very...

    Two polls released Sunday reveal President Trump's approval rating is at its lowest point since his inauguration in January 2017 as the country reignites its debate over gun control reform. Only 38 percent of people surveyed by USA Today and Suffolk University's Political Research Center approve of Trump's job performance a year into his presidency, while 60 percent disapprove of his leadership of his administration. ... CNN's survey, put in the field by SSRS, found 35 percent back Trump's job performance, whereas 58 percent do not.

    This is not fiction… It’s not a conspiracy theory… It’s a plausible explanation for a mysterious event that actually happened. On the evening of May 28, 1993, an enormous blast rocked the Australian Outback. It measured 3.9 on the Richter scale and sent shock waves out hundreds of miles. Truck drivers and gold prospectors in the area saw the dark sky light up with a bright flash. I only heard about the incident last year, when Doug Casey and I met a shadowy figure with deep connections to the US government in a café in Kiev, the capital of...

    By Philip Cottraux I had another blog planned for this week; but with the terrible tragedy that happened in Florida, I feel the need to try to inject common sense into the inevitable controversy surrounding gun ownership and its role in the recent rash of mass shootings. I was a high school freshman when the Columbine massacre happened, and experienced firsthand the devastating effects it had on schools nationwide. But the spiritual sickness infecting the US was never addressed, and what was rare then has now become a sad epidemic. We are now living in a world where mass killings...

    In early 2016, Chauncy G. Goodrich and his family started having problems with a young bull moose on their property near Pinedale, Wyoming.They were repeatedly chased by the moose. They tried various non lethal methods to haze the moose away. They worked for a short period, but the bull continued to hang around the area. By July of 2017, the non-lethal methods were exhausted and/or were no longer effective. Chauncy took a 7 mm Magnum with him as a precaution when he attempted to chase the moose off his property and away from his wife and young children.The bull...

    We've seen some mouse guns out in the wild internet. Many people have made some really nice authentic looking replicas like the 1911 and Glocks. But its not too often that you find one that can actually shoot a .22 bullet. In this video from DonP Facebook, looks like a mini-mouse gun that you would see in the “Cannon Fodder” video games. This mini-mouse gun does pack a bang. Chalk another one up for the collectors bin. This thing is really amazing at such small scale that can pack a loud bang. See the full footage of this small pistol...

    Whispers are rampant throughout D.C. that a vacancy is imminent on the U.S. Supreme Court - one that is currently taken by one of the most liberal members of the Court. It has the Trump White House giddy over the prospect of potentially and forcefully shifting the balance of power on the Court while Democrats in Congress are said to be warning White House staff of a prolonged and brutal fight should President Trump attempt to replace a liberal Justice with a hardline-conservative nominee. The reason for the Justice's alleged departure is said to be "ongoing illness/physical limitations." The first...

And they just told us this week, they gave us everything they’re going to give us, and not one text message was turned over. They lost all of Andrew McCabe’s text messages! I don’t believe it. There’s still gamesmanship going on.
