US National Security Advisor John Bolton Backs Terrorists

Land Destroyer at Land Destroyer - 7 minutes ago
*March 31, 2018* (Tony Cartalucci - NEO) - Talk surrounding US President Donald Trump's move to appoint John Bolton as his new National Security Advisor has focused on Bolton's role in promoting the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq and the profound contrast his appointment signifies in light of President Trump's 2016 campaign promises to "drain the swamp." However, Bolton's appointment carries with it greater implications both to those apparently criticizing him as well as those attempting to promote him. Bolton has - for years - lobbied for a terrorist organization guilty of kidnappin... more »

The Right Enemy

LL at Virtual Mirage - 29 minutes ago
We all have enemies. It's a condition of life. Even in the semi-utopian socialist wet dream that was the book (and world) *1984*, the society was constantly at war. The prog enemy is "the rich", which is problematic because all of the prog leaders are "rich" by anyone's standards. They wear their pink hats and parade around holding signs displaying their reproductive organs and decry men, and "the rich", and whatever. h/t Woodsterman Then there are the Hogs who want to disarm all honest people in America.

The true measure of your education is not what you know, but how you share what you know with others." - Kent Nerburn

*“The Mystery of Life? I Don't Know”* by Chet Raymo “Albert Einstein said, "Theories should be as simple as possible, but no simpler." At first glance, this may sound like a Zen koan, or a paradox. In fact, it is a profound statement that says more than volumes of philosophy. But first, a bit of background. From the dawn of time, people have resisted saying "I don't know." They looked instead for explanations in tribal tradition, sacred books, or the supposed wisdom of shamans, priests and prophets. The most common cover-up for ignorance is to invoke divinity.

But sometimes, it can shed new light on the problem, make you see it in a whole new way. After all the opinions have been heard and every point of view has been considered, you finally find what you're after - the truth. But the truth isn't where it ends, that's just where you begin again with a whole new set of questions." - "Meredith", "Grey's Anatomy"

These Are the 5 Most Deadly (and Portable) Guns on the Planet

Kyle Mizokami at The National Interest - 3 hours ago
*Kyle Mizokami* *Security, North America* They pack a punch when you consider their size. Firearms have a well-deserved reputation for appearing large and bulky. Long, thick barrels, heavy-duty receivers and banana-shaped external magazines often make firearms look burdensome to carry on a long trip, particularly by foot. Some firearms are designed for portability, or to combine two different functions within the same compact platform. The result are firearms that offer security and the ability to hunt or do a little plinking in the backcountry. *Ruger 10/22 Takedown Rifle* Fi... more »

March is shaping up to be the month that IS switched from scattered hit and run attacks after railing from its territorial defeat to when it regrouped and converted back to openly confronting the Iraqi government. It has access to rural areas from Anbar and Ninewa straight across to Diy... more »

Crisis Actors Shooting Themselves In The Foot

greencrow at Greencrow As The Crow Flies - 12 hours ago
*Shooting Yourself in the Foot* So. Russia recently announced it has secretly developed some very high tech weaponry...far ahead of anything USrael currently has. Shortly thereafter...US/UK/NATO provokes a situation involving a False Flag operation in the UK [Fake poisoning of UK spy on a Park bench]. Subsequently, 100's of the "Wests" "eyes and ears" in Russia are kicked out in a "tit for tat" diplomatic war...This immediately lessens/eliminates opportunities that USrael will learn anything more about these mysterious Russian wonder weapons. Does the metaphor "shoot yourself in t... more »

*“5 Sad Truths About Success And Happiness”* by Bernard Marr “Even as medical science and quality of life continues to increase our life spans, it seems as though many of us are not really living the life we’re given. Too often we are caught in the “busy” trap, running, running, running—but never getting much of anywhere. But how would you live differently if you knew you were going to die? Finding true success and happiness: Not to be maudlin, but we all are going to die—sooner or later. And while death is something we humans pretty universally fear, thinking about our own demise ... more »

Sanctuary Cities and States Should Not Be Allowed to Sue in Federal Court; Trump Should Nullify California vs Exxon

Only in California would they make a policy of ignoring Federal Law when it suits them, and then turn to it when it benefits them. California has made a habit of picking and choosing what Federal Laws it chooses to enforce, undermining our union, violating the supremacy clause of the US Constitution, and making a … Continue reading "Sanctuary Cities and States Should Not Be Allowed to Sue in Federal Court; Trump Should Nullify California vs Exxon"

How Federal Surveillance and “Parallel Construction” Undermine the Rule of Law

[image: how-federal-surveillance-and-parallel-construction-undermine-the-rule-of-law] When we talk about NSA spying, most people’s eyes glaze over. They just don’t think it will have any impact on them. After all, the surveillance agency only spies on foreigners and terrorists, right?

[image: alex-newman-states-working-to-restore-sound-money]VIDEO - A growing number of American states are taking action to restore sound money, reports correspondent Alex Newman for The New American. Among the recent victories in the ongoing battle was Alabama, where a new law removed taxes on gold and silver. Before that, Texas passed a law creating a state depository for gold bullion and other precious metals to help sideline the Federal Reserve in commerce. Utah kicked off the trend in 2011, when it declared gold and silver to be legal tender in the state. With the central bank's ... more »

"Fish Are the Last to Notice the Water"

*"Fish Are the Last to Notice the Water"* by Paul Rosenberg "I ran into this phrase in a physics lecture, of all places, and knew it would be the title of my next article. And this is generally a true statement. Those who are immersed in something… who have always been immersed in it… are the last to see what it really is. By now it should be obvious to the people of the West that they’re being held in a primitive bondage. And fortunately, more eyes are opening to this than ever before. But still, most people are so used to this particular “water” and have so long acclimated themse... more »

“We plan our lives according to a dream that came to us in our childhood, and we find that life alters our plans. And yet, at the end, from a rare height, we also see that our dream was our fate. It's just that providence had other ideas as to how we would get there. Destiny plans a different route, or turns the dream around, as if it were a riddle, and fulfills the dream in ways we couldn't have expected.” - Ben Okri

"Yes, the times change with the tides; yet the tales, like the surf, sound on in familiar perpetuity and with steady repetition. In the modern era, during the great clash of civilizations currently underway, there will be no new, great and ghastly crusades. Only resistance or surrender. In America, just as her tide recedes from the world, in the end it may become Man overboard, and every man for himself. The sun rises. The sun sets.

Both may have been something of a rejection of the borderless world favoured by the highest priests of globalisation but unlike the Hillary Clinton’s shock defeat in 2016 vote – delivered by voters in rust-belt states that loved Trump’s blaming of China and allegedly unfair trade treaties for loss of blue collar jobs – that […] The post Is Britain heading in a more Trumpian direction on protecting its home-made industries? appeared first on UnHerd.
