‘Water Mafia’ in California’s Future?

From Natural News In recent days, residents of Los Angeles and its surrounding communities got to experience a rare treat — rainfall — but of course, it was far too little to do much to alleviate the state’s ongoing brutal drought. That said, there is some concern that water may become so scarce — and so valuable — that its distribution and sale might be taken over by a Mafia-like criminal enterprise, just like what is currently taking place in India. According to The Associated Press (AP) a “water mafia” has risen up to fill the dearth of water during … Continue reading

From Fox and Friends: ‘Zero Tolerance’ policy gone way too far…A South Carolina school yanked American flags from students’ truck beds on 9/11 because they ‘drew attention’ to the vehicles.

from TPNN: Congressman Trey Gowdy issued the following opening statement at the beginning of the Select Committee on Benghazi Hearings that began today, stating that both the American people, including the families of those lost during the tragic terrorist attack on 9/11/12, are owed the truth. The people we work for yearn to see the right thing done, for the right reasons, and in the right way.  They want to know that something can rise above the din of politics.  They want to trust the institutions of government.  So to fulfill the duties owed to those we serve and in honor … Continue reading

If It Walks Like a Duck….A Commentary on Conspiracy Theories

A perp walks into a bank and robs it.  The teller claims the perp was a duck.  When police look at the surveillance video, the image shows a small, feathered creature with webbed feet waddling up to the teller and quacking instructions to her through its bill.  The police logically conclude that the perp is indeed the one duck who resides in the town.  They get a warrant and search the duck’s nest and sure enough – there’s the money.  But wait!  Someone comes forward to say it can’t be the duck, because they’re sure they saw the duck on … Continue reading

Benghazi’s questions have all been answered …

They’ve constructed a sophisticated, well designed, easy to use site that answers questions about the events leading up to the attack on September … Continue reading

Are We Still a Republic?

From Allen West: 237 years later, are we still a Republic? Today is September 17, 2014. Two hundred and twenty-seven years ago on this date, in 1787, the greatest governing document the world has ever known came into existence as it was signed in convention in Philadelphia — our United States Constitution. On that day as our American history teaches us, there was a very memorable exchange.

DHS Denies ISIS Threat at Border

From Breitbart: In a written statement to the New York Times, the Department of Homeland Security denied that there was “credible evidence” to believe Islamic State terrorists could use the porous southern border to cross into the United States and wage terror attacks. While Democrats defend the sentiment, few question security at the even less protected northern border. The New York Times notes that evidence indicates that Islamic State mujahideen have traveled to Mexico and have plans to”imminently” launch car bomb attacks. The paper adds that federal law enforcement appears to be on a “heightened state of alert,” and nonetheless, the Department of … Continue reading

UN-Weenies Evacuate Syria For Israel

Talk about irony… From the Times of Israel: UN peacekeepers withdrew from all of their posts in the Syrian Golan Heights Monday, as regime forces and rebel factions battled for control of the areas adjacent to the Syrian-Israeli border in what the UN called a “deteriorating situation. A UN spokesperson said all the troops posted on the Syrian side had been ordered to pull back into Israel. The Syrian armed groups posed “a direct threat to the safety and security” of the troops from the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), said UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric. “All the UN personnel in … Continue reading

Hurrah for the Green, White and Red?

Democrat congresswoman, Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ, CD-1), showed her true colors — and they are not Red, White, and Blue. At an Eloy, Ariz. parade celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner, Kirkpatrick proudly rode her campaign float, even tweeting photos of her participation. Kirkpatrick’s float did not display the American flag, odd enough considering the nature of the event.  Instead, Kirkpatrick chose to flaunt her allegiance to the Verde, Blanco y Rojo — flying the flag of Mexico from her float. Did Kirkpatrick deliberately crop the tweeted photo to hide that she chose to abandon Old Glory on a day held … Continue reading

Huckabee said he’s still deciding about 2016. “I have … Continue reading

The Pentagon Sent Extra Military Gear to School Districts Too

A coalition spearheaded by the NAACP and Texas Appleseed, a social justice organization, on Monday sent a letter to the director of the Pentagon’s Defense Logistic Agency urging the department stop sending military equipment to schools under the so-called 1033 program, which has come under intense scrutiny following the police crackdown last month in Ferguson, Mo.
