“interesting times” are nearly here

Jade Helm Offical Reveals True Purposes of JH-15: This Is a Must Read! Posted on May 31, 2015 by Dave Hodges Finally, we are getting some much needed honesty with regard to the true nature of Jade Helm. The information is not overtly forthcoming, but in this clumsily made presentation to local Texas officials, one can pretty much ascertain the true nature of the drill, that is, if one can get around the obvious lies being told to the public by this Jade Helm official. The Jade Helm official, Tom Meade, a Senior Non-commissioned officer from Army Special Forces (Retired) is now working as a private military contractor and he recently briefed local officials in Big Spring, Texas as […]

Unmarked Cop Cars

Making The Roads Less Safe by eric • May 28, 2015 • 50 Comments Wouldn’t it be easier if they just hit us all with another once-annually additional “fee” (that is, another tax) that would be due Jan. 1 and otherwise left us alone on the roads unless we actually caused an accident? Instead of cops lurking in cutouts on the highway, radar guns at the ready, fleecing people at random – why not just cut ’em a check every year and end the dog-and-pony show that goes on countless of thousands of times every day by the side of the road – and later on, in a court? It’d be so much easier for everyone. Probably, more profitable, […]

March Against Monsanto

May 26, 2015 – in Pictures By Mark Wachtler May 26, 2015. Earth. (ONN) This weekend was the annual worldwide March Against Monsanto. If you live in America and didn’t hear about it, that was no accident. The Washington-Wall Street media industry had a universal black-out of Saturday’s global protest. That’s because Monsanto, America’s media outlets and the US federal government are all owned by the same exact people. But that didn’t stop hundreds of thousands of individuals, if not millions, from marching against Monsanto. Share Millions marched worldwide against Monsanto on Saturday. But most Americans missed it due corporate censors and a nationwide media black-out. Image courtesy of Protesting against Monsanto, their GMO products, their Roundup pesticides […]

Welcome to McFascism

Over 300 million disenfranchised US voters since 1988 from RT, by Robert Bridge Robert Bridge has worked as a journalist in Russia since 1998. Formerly the editor-in-chief of The Moscow News, Bridge is the author of the book, “Midnight in the American Empire.” Editorial note: While the text is his, the posters are from my collection and, I think, quite relevant to his article – Ted How does one describe a political system where just two parties control the game, preventing any third ‘factions’ from participation in the elite franchise? There’s just one ugly word for it, and it’s not democracy. Most Americans have never heard about the dirtiest secret on Capitol Hill: The Democrat and Republican parties have achieved […]

Bitterroot Beemer Biker

I can hardly believe I did it. My resistance to powerful motorcycle lust weakened sufficiently to put me back on two wheels after a 39-year hiatus. Precious few activities even come close to the physical poetry, artistry, ballet of driving a nice bike. I do have a weakness for sweeping the curves with excessive libertarian joy in darn-near anything I drive, but way-moreso on bikes. I haven’t been able to justify ownership, nor allow myself the temptation to enjoy a sport-bike or sport-touring-bike in the way they were designed to be loved. This gem to the right broke all that down yesterday. A 2002 BMW R1150RS for $2,500 was in the price range of bikes I’d been daydreaming of for […]

then they came for me

When They Come for the Smaller Groups. . . . May 23, 2015 Bojidar Marinov 17 comments First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. Martin Niemöller’s words delivered a painful sting to his fellow pastors in postwar Germany. These words clearly spoke the truth: the guilt for the desolation of Germany lied on their shoulders. From the […]

a veteran’s view of Memorial Day

In 1968 I chose to enlist in the USAF for four years rather than being drafted into the Army for two. In my ignorance I saw only that one way to avoid being handed a rifle and told to kill people I had no quarrel with, or be killed by them. I knew I would struggle to be comfortable living with myself if I survived. Many people of my age let the government choose for them, and for a lot of those it didn’t work out well. It has been the same for young men in this country for 222 of the 239 years since it was founded. I’m taking the time today to say I’m sorry for what happened […]

more Operation Blue Helmet 15

Why Is The VA Stock Piling M.R.E.’s Prior To Operation Jade Helm? As we near the kickoff of Operation Jade Helm, scheduled for July 15 to September 15, the strange continues to get stranger. While the main stream media continues to ignore this issue, the largest known join military training exercise on U.S. soil in the history of our great nation, one that is said to include international forces, yet calls those of us who are concerned ‘crazy’ or ‘paranoid conspiracy theorists,’ those ‘in the know’ continue to prepare. While ‘preppers’ and ‘paranoids’ are mocked for having more than a week’s worth of food or survival supplies, Government agencies across the land are prepping. DHS is stock piling ammo- ammo […]


“Government cannot make us equal; it can only recognize, respect, and protect us as equal before the law.” — Clarence Thomas U. S. Supreme Court Justice There is widespread philosophical confusion about equality. This mis-thinking is not just encouraged, it is promulgated by the government education training system, spokesmen and media partners. Then the misled people do the rest, sharing the plain-pudding neutralized language. The objective is to reduce the serfs to equal mediocrity. The tactics include degrading the word “hero” to cover anything other than average… like heroically climbing out of a swimming pool prior to drowning. C’mon, it is not heroic to try to survive. Survival instinct is the most basic of animal instincts. A canary strives to […]

big pharma losing its grip

Harris Poll: 81% Favor Legalizing Medical Marijuana Four in five support legalizing medical marijuana & half support recreational legalization. Many adults also believe marijuana is no more hazardous than alcohol. By Harris Last month, Georgia decriminalized marijuana, making it the twenty-sixth jurisdiction (Washington, D.C. included) to legalize marijuana for medical purposes. A new Harris Poll finds that the growing acceptability of marijuana among state lawmakers reflects attitudinal shifts amongst the general American public since 2011. Support for the legalization of marijuana for both medical treatment and recreational use has increased by seven percentage points over the past four years. Currently, four in five adults (81%) favor legalizing marijuana for medical use, up from 2011 when three quarters of Americans (74%) […]

kitchen towels poisoning you

(NaturalNews) If you’re concerned about bacteria and food poisoning, new research suggests that a threat that you might not have fully considered could be the most dangerous source of infection in your home. No, it isn’t the cutting board, the sink, or even the toilet that should be the biggest cause of concern. It turns out that towels and cell phones are the dirty little culprits that could be causing preventable infections in your home, but it does make sense when you consider the food preparation habits in the kitchen today. The new study, which was published in the journal Food Protection Trends, observed 123 people while making a meal. They found that tea towels were the leading cause of […]

few trust mainstream media

(NaturalNews) Trust in the mainstream media appears to be taking a nosedive, at least among young people. A recent Harvard Institute of Politics poll that queried more than 3,000 people between the ages of 18 and 29 found that only 2 percent of them believe that the media can be trusted to do the “right thing” on a regular basis. The poll found that 88 percent of those polled think that the media only “sometimes” or “never” does the right thing. In fact, a whopping 39 percent said the media “never” does the right thing. This places the media in last place behind Congress, Wall Street and the federal government in terms of trust. High on the list of those […]

know this guy?

It really is something we need to think about. The propaganda machine, I mean news media, along with “career” family politicians are not the right mix, in either party. We need to go back to the Citizen-Politician idea, along with demanding an honest and inquiring news media. He is Edward “Ed” Mezvinsky, born January 17, 1937. Then you’ll probably say, “Who is Ed Mezvinsky?” Well, he is a former Democrat congressman who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977. He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon. He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a crook and a disgrace to politics and […]
