In preparing next term’s calendar for my classes, I use the At-A-Glance PM3-28 over-sized item. Sprinkled throughout the calendar are Christian, Jewish, and Muslim holidays, information about daylight savings, and the like.
Apparently since at least 2012 (if not before) the calendar manufacturer saw fit to note The Day of the Race on Sunday October 12, 2014 as well as Revolution Day on November 17, 2014. Next to the name of the holiday there is an (M).
Curious, I went to investigate these two holidays which I had never paid much attention to, only to learn that these two dates are anything but benign commemorations. Continue reading
Editor’s Note: I’ve decided to put this at the top since many people simply read a title and never read the content of articles. Then they pontificate about the article’s content as though they read it or even watched the video if supplied. If you don’t read the content of the article, then you have no authority to comment on it. I find this incredibly ironic considering many conservatives are so upset their representatives don’t read legislation before voting on it. I added the full video before publishing Leon’s article, so that you can view it all the way through. These are his words and there is a context. Leon also made sure to point out exactly what context Barack Obama said this in. However, his point was to demonstrate that Obama’s actions speak a lot louder than his words, words Obama claims he disagrees with. Yet, given his actions, it appears Obama is in clear agreement with what his mouth claims he is against. – Tim Brown, Editor – Freedom Outpost
New World Order. Three words that should never be associated with any individual much less the President of the United States, yet these three words can be not just associated with, but laid directly at our Presidents feet due to words, actions and in some instances lack of action. Many would say it is wrong even possibly anti-American to make such a statement, but what else could be said, how else could one explain the actions and inactions of President Obama? Obama has an administration embedded with so many Socialists, Communists, and possible Marxists, that it would have made General Patton not slap, but punch Obama in the face had he been alive today! Just how in the world can we justify what is going on today in the United States? How in the world has our nation become such a nation of fools? Could this be due to many of us just not paying attention and just voting for a politician with the cool voice? Have we as a nation lost sight of what this nation was founded upon? So many questions and yet, no one seems willing to ask them, especially asking them when questioning the President! Continue reading
As I pointed out (recently), ground beef prices have risen 58% since January 2009 and 30% since January 2012. Now the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) finds that the consumer price index (CPI) for U.S. beef and veal is up almost 10 percent so far in 2014, reflecting the fastest increase in retail beef prices since the end of 2003.
And now “pink slime” makes a comeback as beef prices rise rapidly. According to the Wall Street Journal,
“Finely textured beef, dubbed “pink slime” by critics, is mounting a comeback as retailers seek cheaper trimmings to include in hamburger meat and processors find new products to put it in. Continue reading
The Army ousted the commander of one of its busiest hospitals and suspended three top deputies on Tuesday after two patients in their 20s who had visited the hospital’s emergency room died unexpectedly in the previous 10 days.
The shake-up at the hospital, Womack Army Medical Center at Fort Bragg, N.C., came at a moment of heightened sensitivity about health care in the military community, stirred by the furor over treatment delays in the separate medical system serving the nation’s veterans. Late Tuesday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered a broad review to ensure that military patients — many of them active-duty service members and their families — are not facing similar problems. Continue reading
A former Defense Department spokesman is calling out the Obama administration for giving terrorists better medical treatment than its giving the nation’s veterans.
In an opinion piece on FoxNews.com today, Defense Department alumni J.D. Gordon claims, ‘Al Qaeda terrorists at Guantanamo treated better than our vets.’
‘Yes, it’s true. I know because I served as a Pentagon spokesman from 2005-2009 and visited Guantanamo Bay Naval Base over 30 times during those years,’ he writes. Continue reading
Rationing: Government-run VA health clinics have been caught falsifying records to hide obscenely long and sometimes deadly delays in treating veterans. Welcome to the future of health care under ObamaCare.
The VA recently decided to investigate one of its Colorado outpatient clinics to see how it handled patient delays. What it found was shocking, but not surprising.
While delays for many of the 6,300 veterans treated at the clinic stretched out for months, clerks there were told to falsify dates so it appeared that everyone was being seen in a timely fashion. Those who didn’t play along ended up on a “bad boy list,” according to USA Today, which obtained a copy of the report.
This follows a report that 23 veterans relying on the VA died due to delayed cancer screenings. At least 40 others died waiting for appointments at a VA system in Phoenix. A retired VA doctor said many were on a “secret waiting list” designed to hide treatment delays. Continue reading
After the recent Bundy Ranch episode by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Texans are becoming more concerned about the BLM’s focus on 90,000 acres along a 116 mile stretch of the Texas/Oklahoma boundary. The BLM is reviewing the possible federal takeover and ownership of privately-held lands which have been deeded property for generations of Texas landowners.
Sid Miller, former Texas State Representative and Republican candidate for Texas Agriculture Commissioner, has since made the matter a campaign issue to Breitbart Texas.
“In Texas,” Miller says, “the BLM is attempting a repeat of an action taken over 30 years ago along the Red River when Tommy Henderson lost a federal lawsuit. The Bureau of Land Management took 140 acres of his property and didn’t pay him one cent.” Continue reading
Land Management: A Chinese solar farm that fries birds is OK, as is redrawing tortoise habitat boundaries to benefit political donors. But an American rancher grazing his cattle brings feds with sniper rifles.
It appears Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has, at least temporarily, won his “range war” with the paramilitary wing of the Bureau of Land Management. Fearing another Waco, BLM has announced it will no longer enforce a court order and stop stealing Bundy’s cows, called “trespass cattle” by the feds, accused of grazing free on part of the 84% of Nevada that is federal property.
If the forces deployed in and around the Nevadan’s ranch had been deployed to Benghazi, it’s likely Glen Doherty, Ty Woods, Sean Smith and Ambassador Christopher Stevens would be alive today. If illegal aliens were grazing on the disputed property, there would not have been federal snipers perched nearby with American citizens in their sights. Continue reading
Unfortunately, we have been programmed and conditioned from the earliest years to not believe in the existence, or even the possibility, of large-scale conspiracies. Students of history learn in introductory courses that there are three views of the philosophy of history.
First, the random contingency view in which historical events are merely “one damn thing after another” (as one of my professors so elegantly stated), with no apparent reason or causal significance.
Second, the so-called “great man” view, in which key religious and political figures cause certain landmark events with history revolving around these figures, such as a Napoleon or a Caesar.
The third and least popular is the providential or conspiratorial view. In this view, history is led along by unseen forces, be they malevolent or beneficent. Humans play their role to be sure, but man is not the autonomous god of his own destiny. He is the actor on a stage in which there is a grand narrative and ultimate reason for every event, even if humans are not always cognizant of those reasons.
Coming to see the truth of a worldwide conspiracy that has been especially centralized in the past few centuries in a western, Anglo-global establishment is also not something people prefer to hear. Humans tend to have a normalcy bias and what is called cognitive dissonance. Continue reading
WASHINGTON — A record $100 billion in withdrawals of Treasury bills is raising speculation that the Kremlin and Russian oligarchs are yanking their money out of the United States to avoid upcoming sanctions over Ukraine.
The massive outflow over the past week came as President Obama and other top US officials repeatedly warned Russia would face a “cost” if it didn’t reverse course in Ukraine.
The total amount of foreign-held US Treasury securities dropped to $2.86 trillion — lowest in more than a year.
Last year, the most moved out in a week was $32 billion.
Analysts said that if the switch was made by Russia, it would represent about 80 percent of that nation’s US Treasury holdings. Continue reading
You received years of specialized training in a field that you’re passionate about. You’ve decided to work in an area of the country where you feel you can make a difference. You have a family, and you’re primarily concerned about helping other families thrive. But at every turn, the state is enacting more barriers to your professional success. Your job options are limited because you’re not welcome in some American communities. And sometimes, protesters show up outside of the home you share with your children, shouting that they hate the work you do.
You’re on the front lines of the abortion wars. Continue reading
Democrat Congressman Gary Peters is running for US Senate in Michigan, where he’s facing a strong Republican opponent in former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land. Like other Democrats across the America, Peters is worried sick about the political impact Obamacare — a law for which Peters voted in 2010. Unlike many others, however, he’s taken the extraordinary step of dispatching a team of lawyers to bully Michigan broadcasters into refusing to air a television ad that’s critical of the healthcare overhaul. The spot is being run by Americans for Prosperity and features a cancer patient who was among the millions whose previous health plans were dropped as a result of Obamacare. The mother who’s battling leukemia says politicians broke their word about the law, and that she’s hurting because of it: Continue reading
Exposing what lies beneath the bodies of dead bankers and what lies ahead for us.
I feel that this is one of the most important investigations I’ve ever done. If my findings are correct, each of us might soon experience a severe, if not crippling blow to our personal finances, the confiscation of any wealth some of us have been able to accumulate over our lifetimes, and the end of the financial world as we once knew it. The evidence to support my findings exists in the trail of dead bodies of financial executives across the globe and a missing Wall Street Journal Reporter who was working at the Dow Jones news room at the time of his disappearance.
If the bodies were dots on a piece of paper, connecting them results in a sinister picture being drawn that involves global criminal activity in the financial world the likes of which is almost without precedent. It should serve as a warning that we are at the precipice of something so big, it will shake the financial world as we know it to its core. It seems to illustrate the complicity of big banks and governments, the intelligence community, and the media. Continue reading
“Wall Street had been doing business with pieces of paper; and now someone asked for a dollar, and it was discovered that the dollar had been mislaid. It was an experience for which the captain of industry were not entirely prepared; they had forgotten the public. It was like some great convulsion of nature, which made mockery of all the powers of men, and left the beholder dazed and terrified. In Wall Street men stood as if in a valley, and saw far above them the starting of an avalanche; they stood fascinated with horror, and watched it gathering headway; saw the clouds of dust rising up, and heard the roar of it swelling, and realized it was only a matter of time before it swept them to their destruction…
But it is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon him not understanding it.” – Upton Sinclair, The Moneychangers
“You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the grace of the eternal God, I will rout you out.” – Andrew Jackson
It was discovered that in all that blizzard of corruption, and the paper that covered it up, that the very basis of the value of things had been ‘mislaid.’ And then the deluge came.
If you listen to the reasoning of ‘free market’ types, and their paid mouthpieces and demagogues, this kind of thing could not happen, because companies, being rational and focused on the long term, would not allow tainted meat with their name on it to be sold into the markets.
They would not risk the lawsuits, and damage to their reputations. It is a similar argument that holds that financial markets need only light regulations because people will manage their own behaviour for the ultimate good, with almost perfect rational and altruistic self-constraint.
But alas, we know this is not true, as anyone who ever travels on a major highway can tell you. People and their tendencies to greed and careless stupidity require a certain association of people for their common good, to take on not only large tasks with common and broad benefits to the pubic, but also in order for the majority to protect themselves from criminals, cheats, sociopaths, and plain old ignorant selfishness. This is why societies establish police and fire departments, and have health laws, for example. Continue reading
Speaking at the University of Hawaii law school, Justice Antonin Scalia said that he believes the federal government will likely resurrect citizen internment camps at some point.
The Associated Press reports Scalia citing the latin phrase that translates “In times of war, the laws fall silent” while discussing Korematsu v. United States (1944), the decision which defended the federal government’s “power” to intern Americans of Japanese descent under Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066.
“Well, of course, Korematsu was wrong, and I think we have repudiated in a later case,” Justice Scalia told students. “But you are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again.” Continue reading
America has a prison problem: Over two million people in this country live behind bars, the highest number in the world.
Some blame the failed “War on Drugs,” while others worry about bad incentives, notably involving the growing private prison industry.
Check out the numbers below: Continue reading
The Washington Free Beacon’s Ellison Barber joined The Blaze TV’s “Real News” Tuesday to discuss the Benghazi scandal in wake of newly declassified documents, which show administration officials almost immediately knew the incident was a terrorist attack and not in protest of a web video.
During the receiving ceremony when the bodies of the four dead Americans were returned to the United States, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, “We have seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with.” Continue reading
After heading up a ‘poor me’ sob-story session with mothers in the Oval Office, packing for the nine-hour flight to Oahu, and wrapping up a 16-day Obamacare public relations blitz, ‘Mom-to-Mom’ Michelle found time to take to the airwaves and dial in to the “Keeping it Real with Reverend Al Sharpton” radio show.
If I might digress for moment, Al Sharpton is a man who, judging from his hairdo and his manner, is neither ‘real’ nor ‘reverend.’
Nonetheless, apart from making some inane arguments as to why everyone should sign up for Obamacare, true to form the first lady began by dragging out the heart-wrenching stories. The first one was about daughter Sasha being stricken with illness as an infant. Like most liberals who have limited experience with anything, Sasha’s bout with meningitis instantly transformed Mrs. Obama into an authority on the need for health insurance.
While talking to the right reverend, who mostly listened, the first lady ramped up the fear factor when she cited studies that show that the primary reason Americans are forced into bankruptcy in the U.S. is being buried in medical bills because they were unable to afford health insurance in the first place. What she didn’t mention is that people in countries with single-payer healthcare systems also go bankrupt. Why? Because despite having socialized medicine, in countries like Canada and Great Britain while waiting for months to receive medical care, many desperately ill people are unable to work. Continue reading
November 9, 2013 marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of one of the most notorious and nasty crimes of the twentieth century: the “Night of the Broken Glass,” when Nazi Germany engaged in an orgy of destruction and violence against those Jews who remained in the Third Reich. Jews were beaten and killed; synagogues were vandalized and burned; Jewish homes and businesses were pillaged and wrecked.
The civilized West was horrified. Although Nazi contempt for Jews was no secret, the period leading up to Kristallnacht had been fairly tame. Anti-Semitic propaganda had almost vanished in 1936, when the Nazis were trying to impress the world with the 1936 Olympic Games. Germany had long been known as an orderly society — almost a compulsively orderly society. Cold Pogrom, the title of a 1939 book by Max Berges, described the calculated and increasing pressure on a typical German Jewish family which led, eventually, to the death of every family member. Continue reading
Left-handed people have a ‘strikingly higher’ chance of suffering from schizophrenia, research suggests.
A study revealed left-handers accounted for 40 per cent of those with the mental illness. However, only around 10 per cent of the general population is left-handed.
It is thought that the changes in the brain that make people left-handed may also contribute to schizophrenia.
Famous left-handers include Prince William, Barack Obama, David Cameron, Sir Paul McCartney, Nicole Kidman and Angelina Jolie.
Several US presidents have also written with their left hand, including George Bush Snr and Bill Clinton. Ronald Reagan is said to have been ambidextrous.
Four of the five original designers of the Macintosh computer were left-handed, as were one in four Apollo astronauts.
Researcher Jadon Webb, of Yale University, US, said: ‘Our results show a strikingly higher prevalence of left-handedness among patients presenting with psychotic disorders.’ Continue reading
Whistle-blower Edward Snowden has hit back at claims by a U.S. government official that collating phone records is not ‘surveillance’.
Senator Dianne Feinstein wrote in a newspaper recently that what the NSA is gathering is not protected under the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits unreasonable searches.
She wrote in USA Today on Sunday: ‘The call-records program is not surveillance. It does not collect the content of any communication, nor do the records include names or locations.’
She added: ‘The NSA only collects the type of information found on a telephone bill: phone numbers of calls placed and received, the time of the calls and duration. The Supreme Court has held this “metadata” is not protected under the Fourth Amendment.’
However Snowden, although he didn’t name the lawmaker, clearly had her comments in mind when he gave a statement to the American Civil Liberties Union about phone tracking. Continue reading
From lost jobs to fewer hours to premium hikes that would make a loan shark drool, Barack Obama’s home state is a case study in why the first rule in health care reform, as in medicine, should be to do no harm.
The president and his cohorts in the media have long accused Republicans of being out of touch with ordinary people. Remember the concocted story about President Bush the elder being so out of touch he was unfamiliar with supermarket bar-code scanners?
But it’s President Obama who’s out of touch with ordinary people and the damage his Affordable Care Act is doing to them as they lose their doctors and current health insurance while being forced under penalty of heavy fines to buy plans they can’t afford on a website that doesn’t work. Continue reading
Barack Obama is warning that if he does not get everything that he wants that he will force the U.S. government into a devastating debt default which will cripple the entire global economy. In essence, Obama has become so power mad that he is actually willing to take the entire planet hostage in order to achieve his goals. A lot of people are blaming the government shutdown on the Republicans, but they have already voted to fund the entire government except for Obamacare.
The U.S. Constitution requires that all spending bills originate in the House of Representatives, and the House did their duty by passing a spending bill. If the Senate or the President do not like the bill that the House has passed, then negotiations need to take place. That is how our system works. And the weak-kneed Republicans have already indicated that they are willing to give up virtually all of their prior demands. In fact, if Obama offered all of them 20 dollar gift certificates to Denny’s to end this crisis they would probably jump at that deal. But that is not good enough for Obama. He has made it clear that he will settle for nothing less than the complete and unconditional surrender of the Republican Party.
Why is Obama doing this? Why is Obama willing to bring the country to the brink of financial disaster? Continue reading
Health Care: In a stunning admission, our Health and Human Services secretary admits ObamaCare is part of the fundamental transformation of America away from a free market in anything to a nanny state on steroids.
Maybe Kathleen Sebelius was being sarcastic, or maybe she thought it might be a good way to reach the “young invincibles” who feel they had better things to do with their money than enroll in ObamaCare. But her recent appearance on Jon Stewart’s show on Comedy Central went about as well as ObamaCare’s train wreck of a rollout. Continue reading
If you think the Obama health law is only for the uninsured and you won’t be affected, you’re in for a surprise next time you go to the doctor. Be prepared for questions unrelated to why you are seeking medical help — questions that you don’t want to answer.
Whether you’re at the dermatologist or the cardiologist, you’ll likely be asked: “Are you sexually active? If so, with one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?”
Doctors are being turned into government agents, pressured financially to ask questions they consider inappropriate and unnecessary, and to violate their Hippocratic Oath to keep patients’ records confidential.
Going to the doctor can be embarrassing. But for your own good, you confide things to a doctor you wouldn’t tell anyone else. What is happening here is different. Continue reading
Wall Street had demanded that President Barack Obama stop the reinstatement of Glass Steagall at all costs and instead move ahead with more bailouts and bail-in looting of the American people to preserve their thoroughly bankrupt system. The Wall Street policy means an acceleration of crippling hyperinflation, devastating austerity and, ultimately, mass murder of the nation’s most vulnerable citizens. Continue reading
California, the so-called Golden State, has often been a national leader over the years.
Now, in the arena of national health care reform, California, with its Covered California (CoveredCA), the first state benefit exchange in the nation, claims to be leading the way in the creation of state health insurance exchanges or marketplaces.These exchanges, created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, PPACA, the ACA, or Obamacare) will allow both individuals and small businesses with up to 50 employees to purchase qualified health care coverage. Continue reading
U.S. officials for the first time disclosed insurance prices that will be offered through new federally run health-care exchanges starting Oct. 1, showing that young, healthy buyers likely will pay more than they do currently while older, sicker consumers should get a break.
The plans, offered under the health-care overhaul to people who don’t get insurance through an employer or government program, in many cases provide broader coverage than current policies.
Costs will vary widely from state to state and for different types of consumers. Government subsidies will cut costs for some lower-income consumers. Continue reading
