"Lines Out The Door": How Americans Respond When Liberal States Restrict Their Gun Rights

The window is closing on freedom in the Golden State, as liberal government leaders and increasingly bureaucratic laws are being used to strip away the rights of the people. This is a system that wants control, and to achieve that, they will stop at nothing short of a totally-disarmed population.

Shifting Power: Visualizing The World's Largest Cities For The Last 6000 Years

In the grand scheme of history, things change quite fast. One cataclysmic choice or event can turn even the greatest empire into a heap of rubble. Sometimes the decline of a world-class city is more gradual – and it is over time that it loses its title to another place in a far and distant land. The following animated map from KPMG Demographics tracks the world’s largest cities from 4,000 BC to today, and it shows how temporary a city’s rise to prominence can be.

The Radical Jesus: How Would The Baby In A Manger Fare In The American Police State?

Jesus was good. He was caring. He had powerful, profound things to say - things that would change how we view people, alter government policies and change the world,and when confronted by those in authority, he did not shy away from speaking truth to power. But what if Jesus, the revered preacher, teacher, radical and prophet, had been born 2,000 years later?


from The Daily Sheeple:
When Big Government goes off the rails, it’s almost like they’re smoking crack. In this case, that’s not far from the truth: The Albuquerque Police Department now plans to manufacture crack cocaine so they can sell it to people who are then arrested for “possession of crack.” (See court documents below for proof.)
Wait a sec… Crack cocaine is an illegal substance, right? So now the police are going to possess it, manufacture it, sell it and then arrest citizens who buy it from them?
Yep. That’s how some police tell themselves they are the “good guys” when they manufacture crack cocaine to sell to the “bad guys” who were making the crack cocaine before the police started making it.

Another Kirby Epic Fail! Caleb Maupin Rips State Dept Propaganda To Shreds At Press Conference

by Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post:
If failing at propaganda was a contest, State Department spokesman John Kirby would be one of the finalists for first place. Indeed, Kirby’s obvious narcissism and unbridled arrogance when dealing with the usually subservient press is apparent every time he steps up to the podium. However, as the American propaganda regarding the crisis in Syria becomes more and more absurd by the day, Kirby and his masters in the White House are having a harder time keeping their narrative together.
So long as Western journalists keep quiet in the face of Kirby’s ridiculous statements, everything tends to work well for the State Department. However, if a journalist ever dares to ask a real question, the State Department narrative immediately falls apart, demonstrating how fragile it was to begin with.

“Newspeak” and the Duplicity of Mainstream Journalism

by Julian Rose, Global Research:
We are faced by a shocking fact these days: the profession of journalism, and I speak of mainstream media journalism, has descended into truly toxic levels of printed and broadcast disinformation. One can now virtually count on the fact that what is being said on any topic of political significance, will be a carefully scripted trotting-out of government and corporate propaganda.
That is not journalism. That is what George Orwell called ‘Newspeak’.
It is a dangerous game which these news hacks are playing. They are witnessing one event and describing it as quite another event. Let me amplify this by looking at the stories emanating out of the Middle East.

While Blaming Trump For "Arms Race", Obama Signs Momentous "Star Wars II" Defense Bill

As politicians and mainstream media blast Trump's apparently incendiary tweet regarding nuclear arms, none other than President Obama just signed legislation that, by striking a single word from longstanding US nuclear defence policy, could heighten tensions with Russia and China and launch the country on an expensive effort to build space-based defense systems.

Sell All Your Bonds

by Doug Casey, DailyReckoning:
So, Trump has won the election. Of course anything can happen between now and his presumed inauguration on January 20.
Maybe the Swamp Creatures will succeed in causing a recount in so-called Purple States that could change the number of electors in Hillary’s favor. Maybe they’ll somehow influence Trump electors to vote for Hillary.
None of this would have been an issue if Baby Bush II, Jeb, had been the Republican nominee, as was supposed to have happened. It all just shows what a transparent (a word these people love to use) fraud “democracy” has become.

Top Ex-White House Economist Admits 94% Of All New Jobs Under Obama Were Part-Time

We find that 94% of net job growth in the past decade was in the alternative work category,” said Obama's former top White House economist Alan Krueger. In other words, nearly all of the 10 million jobs created between 2005 and 2015 were not traditional nine-to-five employment, but low-paying temp, on-call, contract workers, independent contractors or freelancers.

Obama Races To Destroy Anti-Terror Program So Trump Can’t Use It

by Blake Niff, Freedom OutPost:
The Obama administration is moving quickly to dismantle a program to track visitors from countries with a high terrorist threat, so that Trump can’t use it as president.
The program, called the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS), was created after the 9/11 attacks and halted in 2011. It worked by tracking arrivals from countries with active terrorist groups.
It attracted renewed attention in the past year when then-presidential candidate Donald Trump proposed reviving the program to serve as a form of “extreme vetting” for Muslims arriving in the United States from dangerous countries. Trump adviser Kris Kobach, who currently serves as Kansas’ secretary of state, was recently photographed carrying documents that explicitly called for reinstating NSEERS and using it to track all arrivals from terrorism-associated countries.

Canada’s Goods Producing Sector Caves

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:
Exports get blamed, despite the crushed loonie.
Many countries, including the US, report GDP on a quarterly basis. Canada reports on a monthly basis. So today Statistics Canada reported GDP for October. What’s disconcerting isn’t so much that GDP fell 0.3% on a monthly basis – these things happen – though it disappointed economists along the way…
The “results were surprisingly bad,” wrote Krishen Rangasamy, senior economist at Economics and Strategy, National Bank of Canada.
“The GDP report is an ugly snowball of reality to the face of the economy to end the year after a nice run earlier in the fall,” said Douglas Porter, chief economist BMO .

“Buy” Signals Appearing Everywhere In Gold

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:
Although it seems like the precious metals sector has experienced another down year, the
HUI index is still up 48.6% from its 12/31/15 close and it’s up 65% from its low on January
19th this year.
The technicals in the gold market never been set up better than they are now for a contrarian move higher. On the assumption that gold closes on Friday lower for the week than last week, it will mark seven straight weeks in which gold has closed lower on a weekly basis. This has never happened before.

Obama Betrays Israel At The United Nations – Is America’s Reprieve Now Over?

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
Barack Obama actually did it. Despite enormous pressure from the government of Israel, President-elect Donald Trump and members of his own party in Congress, Barack Obama decided to stick a knife in Israel’s back at the United Nations. On Friday, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution that calls for a “two-State solution based on the 1967 lines” and that shockingly states that “the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity”. This resolution was approved by a vote of 14 to 0, and the U.S. abstained from voting. But essentially the outcome of the vote was going to be determined by Barack Obama. For decades, the U.S. veto power on the UN Security Council has shielded Israel from these types of resolutions, but this time around Obama decided to betray Israel by allowing this vote to pass. Needless to say, this vote is going to have enormous implications for Israel, for the United States, and for the entire globe.
