*led mostly by toxic feminists who are celebrating International Women's Day today (March 8th) * Over 40% of babies born today are living in fatherless homes. The percentages for fatherless black babies hovers around 70%. Boys enter school to be taught propagandized by a majority of women teachers where dangerous drugs are foisted on them if they dare to act like boys. "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" shouted the feminists during the 60's and 70's. It appears they've realized their dreams of a beta male society.

What Do Democrats Stand For?-- A Guest Post By Maine Democrat Jared Golden

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 12 hours ago
On Sunday, Maine Democrats held statewide caucuses. In the state's sprawling 2nd district, a crowded primary yielded the one candidate, Jared Golden, who caucus goers know is the surest bet to beat GOP incumbent Bruce Poliquin. Golden had volunteers at 80% of the caucus locations in the 26,000 square mile district, straight off fresh the Canadian-American Sled Dog races where his campaign raised money for state and local Democratic candidates. And he won just over 90% of the caucus straw poll votes. Lately Golden has been busy with the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1445... more »

In 1983, Russia and America Almost Accidentally Started a Nuclear War

Richard Purcell at The National Interest - 12 hours ago
*Richard Purcell* *History, Europe* Soviet leaders worried the Americans were planning a sneak attack. In 1983, the United States and the Soviet Union came dangerously close to nuclear war. That was the conclusion of a highly classified report issued in February 1991 by the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, or PFIAB. The board, which conducts oversight of the U.S. intelligence community for the White House, interviewed over 75 American and British officials and examined scads of intelligence assessments and other official documents from the early 1980s.

The US Ponders a Strike Against Syrian Government Forces: What’s Behind This Aggressive Approach?

Peter Korzun at - 13 hours ago
[image: undefined] The US is considering the option of military action against Syria. The alleged use of chemical weapons (CW) by the Syrian government, which is not backed by any solid evidence, is to serve as the pretext. ( Shades of GW Bush and Iraqi WMD ) Syrian President Assad is going to be “punished.” On March 6, US President Trump and Israeli PM Netanyahu discussed the threat posed by Iran’s presence in Syria and ways to counter it. Chemical weapons? But why should Syria’s President Assad use them if he has had no trouble winning with conventional weapons wherever he goes? Couldn’t the rebels be using CW? Ins... more »

Gun Crackdowns Have Already Led to Too Many Federal Abuses

James Bovard at - 13 hours ago
[image: undefined] President Trump declared last week that the law enforcement should “take the guns first, go through due process second.” But the history of federal firearms enforcement shows that due process is often a mirage when federal bureaucrats drop their hammer. Before enacting sweeping new gun prohibitions, we should remember the collateral damage and constitutional absurdities from previous federal crackdowns. Gun control advocates have called for prohibiting possession of AR-15 rifles — a ban that could create five million new felons overnight, since most owners would ... more »

The bureaucrats strike again - and may have cost lives

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 13 hours ago
This is what happens when bureaucrats put procedures and policies above the safety of human life. When a gunman started shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, two Miramar SWAT team members did what comes naturally: They went to help. Now they’ve been suspended for it. The officers did not have permission to respond to the shooting at Parkland on Feb. 14, when 17 people were killed. And that created an officer safety issue and left them unaccountable for their actions, according to their police department. * . . .* A third SWAT member, Officer Kevin Gonzalez, was accuse... more »

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 14 hours ago
*Brookings:* *China’s military spending* When assessing China’s military spending and modernization, we should keep six things in mind. First, China’s official military spending figures are questionable, with many independent estimates suggesting that it already spends in excess of $200 billion on its military each year. Although the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has become somewhat more transparent over the past two decades, the exact annual defence budget should be taken with a grain of salt. Two, until about 2020 the PLA will be undertaking perhaps its most radical modernizat... more »

Trade Retaliation and the Trump Steel and Aluminum Tariffs

First, the imposition of the new tariffs was undertaken following an investigation by the U.S. Department of Commerce under Section 232 of the T... more »
