    Three of the highest ranking cyber-investigators announced immediate retirement. They say it isn’t because of all the Justice Department scandals but the frustration of not being able to do their jobs, as pointed out by a recent DOJ report, might have been too much to bear. Top cyber-sleuths are leaving the Federal Bureau of Investigation in droves. Three more departures were announced by the Wall Street Journal on Thursday. Washington, D.C. bureaucrats are screaming that this couldn’t happen at a worse time. Threats “like Russia’s election interference and online foreign influence campaigns, have reached a point of alarm,” writes CNN....

    Freepers are the best and know everything! I need some prescription meds that my insurance co. will not pay for. My doctor suggested getting from Mexico or Canada! I searched and found too many Canada Pharmacies on the net, great prices. But I don't know whether to trust any of them. I hate to risk $100+ to find out. Would appreciate any tips if you have ordered RX from Canada.

    Confederate flag coming back to the South Carolina State House on Tuesday COLUMBIA, S.C. - The Confederate flag is coming back to the S.C. State House, at least for one day. On Tuesday, members of the S.C. Secessionist Party will raise the rebel banner on a temporary pole in front of the Gervais Street steps. The 10 a.m. ceremony will mark the three-year anniversary of the flag's permanent removal from the State House grounds. This is the third time the party has raised the flag in front of the State House. Each July 10 since the flag was removed, the...

    {Full Title}EXPOSED: Peter Strzok Grew Up In Iran and Saudi Arabia, Worked As Obama and Brennan’s Envoy To Iranian Regime Why doesn’t anybody talk about the Iranian takeover of our government, between this arrogant FBI hatchet man and Valerie Jarrett? And we are finally noticing a Russian threat — years after people on the Right were ridiculed for concerns about socialism and Communism by the left-leaning media and Democrats who loved socialism, Communism, and the Soviet Union. At a time when Russian moles were actually infiltrating and running things, the left didn’t care. Today, when Russia is substantially diminished, they’re...

    { Full Title } Masked Protesters Hurl Feces At New LA Kosher Coffee Shop During Grand Opening Event — Because Owner Supports Trump Residents of a rapidly gentrifying enclave of Los Angeles tried to shut down the grand opening of a new coffee shop, saying the owner’s support of President Donald Trump’s stance on immigrants is reason alone to want him out of the neighborhood. On Thursday, protesters held signs and screamed at patrons in front of Asher Caffe & Lounge located at 945 S. Boyle Ave. in Boyle Heights, a traditionally Jewish neighborhood that is now predominately Latino. They...

    The old trope of “good cop, bad cop” may be getting a twist, and it’s no doubt making Democrats nervous. Call Peter Strzok the bad cop. The embattled FBI investigator already showed a strong political bias that almost certainly influenced his judgment on inquiries into both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump … and he’s now facing serious questions and a loss of his security clearance as a result. He put on the bad cop act again during his recent testimony to Congress, where Strzok acted aloof and uncooperative as lawmakers tried to determine if FBI officials purposely tried to undermine...

    In the flow of this 3.8 billion-year-old river of life it is death, not life, that drives evolution. Death is that which sculpts the flow of life. In the marketplace of business it is failure, not success, that shapes, sculpts and hones that which survives. Whether it is an inability to survive in ever-changing physical conditions or an inability to convince enough people to purchase your goods or services at the price you require, demise of the entity controls and shapes what remains. Death and failure are the invisible hands that ensure these systems remain somewhat in balance. They put...

    When a young Birmingham college student's car broke down the night before he was supposed to start a new job, he didn't panic. At least not for long. Instead, Walter Carr walked. From Homewood to Pelham. All night. In the dark. 20 miles or more. A Carver High School graduate and U.S. Marine hopeful, Carr walked throughout the early morning hours Friday because he needed, and wanted, the job with Bellhops moving company. He made it to Hoover by 2 a.m. and then to Pelham at 4 a.m. It was in Pelham that the trek took a surprising turn. Kindness...

    I believe the so-called hacking of the democrat's server before the election by Russians was due to the fact that all the media and all the news had been saying that Hillary Clinton was a shoe-in for the Presidency...No way was Trump going to win. I believe the hacking was so they could learn what all was going on with Hillary and her party so they could use that against them when Hillary took office... It wasn't to try to help Trump win...It was to help blackmail the Hillary administration...

    One thing our public schools do well is undermine real education. K-12 education is a big swirl of unnecessary problems and impasses. Millions of children are damaged by what seem to be ideological decisions. Our self-appointed experts, which I call the Education Establishment, appear unable to improve the schools. Worse, they don't seem to want to. Let’s identify the three main problems as the first step toward fixing them: First, our schools seem to become dumber by the year and probably by the month. Government statistics say that the majority of our students, in both fourth grade and eighth grade,...

In 2014, to punish Russia for supporting separatist militias in Ukraine, the United States imposed sanctions on two state-owned Russian banks, two state-owned Russian oil companies, and six Russian arms manufacturers, including Kalashnikov, maker of the AK-47 rifle. To maintain access to the lucrative American gun market, Kalashnikov...

    Breitbart ^ | July 13, 2018 | Tom Ciccota
    Over the last few years, a select few schools around the country have shown the high cost of catering to the demands of partisan activist groups and mobs of social justice warriors. Schools like Evergreen State College, the University of Missouri and Oberlin College are all notorious for their tendency to pander to social justice activists — and now they are paying the price. Although college enrollment is slightly declining throughout the country, these institutions have seen massive declines over just the past few years.

    In a seismic decision from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and U.S. Department of State (DOS), Cody Wilson’s open-source 3D printed firearm file sharing site Defense Distributed is no longer banned from distributing 3D models of guns. In the legal battle it was deemed that the ban was in breach of the First Amendment – imposing censorship on a gun maker’s rights to expression. It was also decided on the basis that certain types of guns are not “inherently military” and, seemingly, present less of a threat to the population.
