  • Why Interstellar Travel Will Be Possible Sooner Than You Think

    The term “moonshot” is sometimes invoked to denote a project so outrageously ambitious that it can only be described by comparing it to the Apollo 11 mission to land the first human on the Moon. The Breakthrough Starshot Initiative transcends the moonshot descriptor because its purpose goes far beyond the Moon. The aptly-named project seeks to travel to the nearest stars. The brainchild of Russian-born tech entrepreneur billionaire Yuri Milner, Breakthrough Starshot was announced in April 2016 at a press conference joined by renowned physicists including Stephen Hawking and Freeman Dyson. While still early, the current vision is that thousands...

    The outsider party of Swedish politics, the Sweden Democrats, got some good news this week. A "You Gov" poll showed them at 28.5 percent support, that's 6.5 percent more than the Social Democrats who currently lead a coalition government after picking up 31 percent of the vote in the 2014 election. If this trend continues into the election, the Sweden Democrats will emerge as the largest single party with around 100-105 seats in the 349 seat Parliament. Voters in Sweden will go to the polls on September 9th to elect the new makeup of their Parliament (the Riksdag). The Sweden...

    Why is the immigration system of the United States as corrupt as the feed the African campaigns? They both are using the poorest of the poor to profit off of and words that twist the truth, and those who sought to make it all happen. 2016 OBAMA NATURALIZATION CEREMONY-IMMIGRATION REFORM Enough said to say to the American citizen, which is now confirmed by the Attorney Generals report, that profits from the poor were the main priority of the deep state.

    What are the resolutions? One of the measures restricts officers from asking the status of immigrants without first permitting them to not answer the question. The other instructs officers to refrain from arresting people for low-level offenses such as smoking marijuana, possessing drug paraphernalia, petty theft, and other misdemeanors.

    Former British spy Christopher Steele visited the State Department in October 2016 and briefed officials there about his work on the infamous anti-Trump dossier, it was revealed on Wednesday. “Based upon our review of the visitor logs at the State Department, Mr. Steele visited the State Department, briefing officials on the dossier in October 2016,” Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr said during a hearing held to review the U.S. government’s response to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

    If you want to read an uplifting commencement address, one that is not bitter and self-absorbed or nasty and partisan, as all too many have been this season, Vice President Mike Pence gave a lovely graduation address at Hillsdale College. Pence praised "our great inheritance" as Americans: You are an extraordinary group of men and women who have accomplished extraordinary things in your time here, and you’ve only just begun. You are 366 strong, you represent 37 states and five countries, and you’ve persevered through one of the most challenging and transformative educations in the country. Although it seems, at...

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    The American left and their lapdog mainstream media lackeys are totally unhinged these days, bursting with outrage over President Trump’s alleged Nazi-styled detention centers/concentration camps for illegal immigrants’ children. There’s a slight problem with the left’s virtue signaling: all those Auschwitz-like detention centers, where illegals’ kids receive free healthcare, free shelter, free meals, free clothing etc. on the American’s taxpayers’ dime were actually built by dear leader Obama. The idiocy of progressives reaches new levels every day, don’t you think? Obviously, the left now wants complete amnesty, saying that it’s time to end “family detention” once and for all. As...
  • Oops, Trump almost had a $125 billion border wall

    CNN Politics ^ | June 21, 2018 | Lauren Fox
    House Republicans had to scramble late Wednesday night to fix a drafting error in a conservative immigration bill that would have accidentally given President Donald Trump $125 billion for border security, including his wall instead of the $25 billion intended. The error, which happens occasionally during legislative drafting accidentally allocated $25 billion per year for five years rather than allocating the $25 billion over a five-year period. The error, first reported by Politico, was just one of the last-minute hiccups that's unfolded around the House's immigration votes, which will occur later today and aren't likely to pass. House Freedom Caucus...

Expensive private dinners. NFL tickets. Parties on booze cruises. Discounts on travel. FBI insiders said more than 60 agents in D.C. alone have been nailed for taking gifts from the news media.

However, Horowitz failed to stipulate that number is ONLY in Washington D.C. which covers...
  • Is Our World Getting Better and Better?

    And now, some good news. Did you know that global poverty is going down? Did you know that global literacy is going up? Did you know that violent crime statistics are dropping and IQs are rising? Did you know that child labor and exploitation are decreasing and human rights are increasing? Our headlines are full of social division, political gridlock, international disorder, increasing militarization, climatic disasters and other problems. Watch the news for half an hour, and it certainly appears that world conditions are getting worse and worse. But some intelligent people argue that since news coverage inherently focuses on...

    Flopping Aces ^ | 06-21-18 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Having ignored an earlier border deal that would have made the issue moot, Democrats have stooped to a new low by comparing the separation of children from their illegal alien parents as required by current law to the mass murder of the unborn, including the harvesting and sale of fetal body parts. That is what Charles C. Camosy, a board member of Democrats for Life, an oxymoron if there ever was one, does in the June 16 New York Times opinion section in a piece with the Orwellian title “You Can’t Be Pro-Life And Against Immigrant Children: In standing by...
  • Killing dogs for meat illegal, rules S. Korean court

    MSN ^ | June 21, 2018 | Park Chan-kyong, Agence France Presse
    A South Korean court has ruled the killing of dogs for meat is illegal, in a landmark decision that animal rights activists said Thursday could pave the way to outlawing eating canines. The meat has long been a part of South Korean cuisine, with about one million dogs believed to be eaten annually. But consumption has declined as South Koreans increasingly embrace the idea of dogs as man's best friend rather than livestock, with the practice now something of a taboo among younger generations and pressure from activists mounting....

    How many innocent politicians, individuals, non Americans have been locked away because they didn’t want to play in the games of corruption?

Where is the Liberty, Justice, and Freedom for the Men/Women who Stand for Truth? People and stories you should know and research to understand what Deep State is, and why President John F.

    It’s well past time that the masses started taking the prog-left at their word! In a dotage most discernible to all, Peter Henry Fonda’s name has been left in the mud; his 49-year-old ‘Easy Rider’ days image too far behind in the rearview mirror to matter anymore. In real life, at age 78, Fonda is the young hippie biker who became the old hippie with a much different decrepit set of wheels. Peter Henry Fonda, (the name with which he signed his threatening Tweet saying Americans upset with the White House’s separation of illegal-immigrant families should “rip Barron Trump from...

    I generally am an upbeat guy, always trying to look on the bright side... I generally try to stay optimistic, empathetic, give everyone the benefit of the doubt and am generally quick to forgive when I'm slighted, etc., etc. But my recent visit to California, where I was forced, among other indignities, to endure the prattle of a queer communist bastard (my sister's best friend) explaining how "...we just have to tax the rich until there ARE no more rich... it's just what we have to do," at the Olive Garden--when I was paying the tab--has caused me to ruminate...

    Last week, Trump had a few nice things to say about Drudge, and Drudge prominently posted this on his site. Trump heaps praise on Drudge ReportSo, being a news addict, I've been monitoring Drudge's coverage since the praise, and it sure seems to me that Drudge has lightened up on Trump and started swinging the hammer more the other way. Today's headlines seem overwhelmingly pro-Trump. I'm hoping Matt has seen the light here. It would be good to have him more objective than he has been in the past. Of course, I may also be crazy...
  • Illegal Immigrant Separated From Child With Down Syndrome, Detained As Smuggling Witness

    Following outrage that border officials separated a mother from her child with Down syndrome, U.S. officials set the record straight by stating Wednesday that the family was separated because the mother might be a criminal smuggler. “This smuggler has a criminal history including a flight, escape, aiding and abetting making it important that we prosecute,” the Customs and Border Patrol statement reads. Mexico’s Foreign Affairs Secretary Luis Videgaray Caso raised questions at a news conference Tuesday, pointing to the grave mistreatment that families must endure because of the federal government’s zero-tolerance policy. The family was not separated because the mother...
