The Silent Invasion Of The Western World. US Next?

We talk of many different disasters to concern ourselves about and prepare for. Some are small, regional disasters, such as hurricanes.

China To Join Russian Military In Syria While Iraq Strikes Intel Deal With Moscow, Tehran

Last Thursday, we asked if China was set to join Russia and Iran in support of the Assad regime in Syria. Our interest was piqued when the pro-Assad Al-Masdar (citing an unnamed SAA “senior officer”), said Chinese “personnel and aerial assets” are set to arrive within weeks. To the uninitiated, this may seem to have […]

The Mystery of Pope Francis: Was There a Vatican Coup?

One thing that that has puzzled a lot of people since the selection of Pope Francis two years ago is how a left-leaning Pope could succeed two very serious conservative Popes—John Paul II and Benedict XVI—who you would have thought had stacked the ranks of the Cardinals with clergy that would perpetuate their theological and […]

Ted Cruz Is Furious Over Something Boehner Allegedly Did Just Before Announcing Resignation

  U.S. House Speaker John Boehner announced his retirement Friday amid persistent criticism from fellow Republicans that he was often too eager to reach across the aisle in furthering the Obama administration’s agenda. That perception, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz said, might be accurate until the day Boehner officially steps down. “I will say,” Cruz […]

While Iran Receives Billions From Lifted Sanctions, the U.S. Military Is Cut by Billions

There are many reasons to think that the Iran nuclear deal is an awful agreement. One of those being the $150 billion (or so) that Iran will receive as sanctions are lifted. While Iran is receiving $150 billion, the U.S. military is struggling under cuts that total over $180 billion over the last four years. […]

Obama will be forced to play Putin’s game in Syria

Russian president Vladimir Putin met with Barack Obama yesterday at the U.N. for 90 minutes, and in that hour and a half, Russia became the dominant power in the Middle East.

DONALD TRUMP DELIVERS CENTER-RIGHT POPULIST TAX PLAN

Sometimes presidential candidate Donald Trump seems to be winging it, but other times he acts with clockwork timing and political precision. The unveiling of his tax plan comes at exactly the right moment, when he needed to deliver something substantive. Its contents are a mixture of center-right reforms and populist juice that will probably go […]

Obama Throws Christian Refugees to Lions

The fate of those Iraqi Christians who had fled from the Islamic State only to be incarcerated in the United States has finally been decided by the Obama administration: they are to be thrown back to the lions, where they will likely be persecuted if not slaughtered like so many Iraqi Christians before them.Fifteen of […]

WATCH Obama: Non-Muslims must stop equating Islam with terrorism

Today at the UN, Obama called those that equate Islamic terrorism with Islam “ignorant.” Pot, meet kettle. Corpsman meet corpseman. It’a an obvious swipe at neurosurgeon Ben Carson …. Look at Occidental College alumnus throwing the word “ignorant ” around. The President of the United States has declared war on the truth. His vicious sharia […]

Obama Frees 20th 9/11 Hijacker

KERRY, HILLARY, KENNEDYS OFFER SANCTUARY TO ‘REFUGEES’ — IN YOUR TOWN, NOT THEIRS

BOSTON – National Democrats have been vocal lately about their desire to resettle hundreds of thousands more “Syrian refugees” in the United States. Yet not one of these ostentatiously compassionate statesmen has offered any of the huddled masses yearning to breath free refuge on their own fabulously posh estates. The list of multi-millionaire Democrats lecturing […]

Reporters Asked Pope Francis If He Supports People Who Refuse to Grant Gay Marriage Licenses on Religious Grounds. Here’s His Response.

Just hours after President Barack Obama told the LGBT community at a Democratic fundraiser that “religious freedom doesn’t grant us the freedom to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights,” Pope Francis seemingly had a very different message.

Obama’s Surreal U.N. Speech

President Obama’s U.N. speech today is filled with nice lines that unfortunately bear no relationship to his seven years of foreign policy — and in some cases, no relationship to reality. The speech had several strong paragraphs about freedom, human rights, and democracy. For example, Obama said: “I believe a government that suppresses peaceful dissent […]

THE POPE’S REAL MESSAGE

The Pope’s comments to Congress on immigration have to be read in detail in order to understand what he’s saying. He’s not making specific policy statements — you must provide a path to citizenship. Instead he’s defining the moral rules that should govern our actions: Our world is facing a refugee crisis of a magnitude […]

Boehner resignation: Chance to save Americans’ sovereignty

As WND’s readers know, I’ve been working on a column that details a strategy for the 2016 election with which the American people can reclaim leadership initiative they are supposed to have in America’s political life.
