    YouTube ^ | July 14, 2018 | The Fallen State with Jesse Lee Peterson
    Social media is exploding with people sharing stories of how they "walked away" from the Democrat Party. In the era of #WalkAway, this episode of TheFallenState TV is more timely than ever. Tune in as host Jesse Lee Peterson sits down with actress, author, conservative commentator, and 'Clueless' star Stacey Dash. Jesse asks Stacey about her rough upbringing, hailing from the South Bronx, and then rising to the heights of Hollywood fame. Stacey speaks candidly on her parents' drug addictions, being sexually abused, and the tremendous discipline it took to get out of the Bronx and into the charmed circles...

    “Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.” – Maurice Strong, Secretary General of the U.N. Earth Summit, 1992. The U.N. Agenda 21 adopted in 1992 and signed by 178 countries has morphed into Agenda 2030 adopted in 2015 with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and 169 “specific targets.” As Alex Newman described it, it is a recipe for “global socialism and corporatism/fascism” foisted upon the world by the United Nations.
  • The Miracle Continues: 365 Days of 2ndVote GunCam Shows No Evidence of a Gun Committing a Crime

    Can you believe it? After 365 days of careful, around-the-clock scrutiny, our 2ndVote GunCam experiment has not produced any observable evidence that a watched gun will move, load, fire, or harm anyone on its own. See for yourself! Last week, we reminded you to watch closely as we counted the final days to the 1-year mark of our groundbreaking study. We know everyone was nervous, and watching with baited breath. But we can now proudly celebrate! And what a relief! We are grateful to our supporters for being part of this harrowing journey. As researchers, we know it will take...
  • FBI To Launch Secondary Firearm Background Check System

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) internal process for firearms-related background checks is gearing up for a change. A secondary system, known as the National Data Exchange (N-DEx), will be implemented in conjunction with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), National Public Radio (NPR) reported. "The N-DEx system is an unclassified national information sharing system that enables criminal justice agencies to search, link, analyze, and share local, state, tribal, and federal records," the FBI's website said. "N-DEx is also a strategic investigative information sharing system that fills informational gaps and provides situational awareness." N-DEx is being implemented because...
  • Tacoma billboard warns of Nazi neighbors

    q13fox.com ^ | 7/11/2018 | Steve Kiggins,
    A new billboard in South Tacoma is raising eyebrows – not for what it’s selling, but for the message that it’s trying to send. A group called Tacoma Against Nazis paid to erect a billboard along Pacific Avenue to fight what it sees as white supremacy encroaching into their neighborhood. The organization says its group of about 100 people have been fighting against a local business they believe has ties to white supremacy. And while for now it’s just the billboard, the group promises to become more active in their fight against injustice. “It’s meant to be pretty shocking,” said...

    Author: 'The left has made it clear that this is personal now' Author and “Dilbert” cartoonist Scott Adams says President Trump’s critics may scare him into the voting booth this year. The author of “Win Bigly: Persuasion in a World Where Facts Don’t Matter” took to social media on Sunday to discuss why he might vote for the first time. The reason: Democrats are “coming for you next” if Republicans lose control of Congress. “The left has made it clear that this is personal now,” Mr. Adams told his large fan base on YouTube. “This is citizen to citizen.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) had some choice words for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on his efforts to unify Democrats against President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Manchin told Politico on Friday that Schumer has no power over support for Kavanaugh’s nomination. “I’ll be 71-years-old in August; you’re going to whip me? Kiss my you know what,” Manchin, referring to Schumer’s efforts to whip up the votes against Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, told Politico in an interview. Shortly after Trump announced Kavanaugh as his pick for the Supreme Court, Schumer released a...

    The Daily Signal ^ | July 9, 2018 | John G. Malcolm and Elizabeth Slattery
    President Donald Trump announced on Monday night his nomination of D.C. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh, who was included in The Heritage FoundationÂ’s original list of potential Supreme Court nominees, is a very promising choice.The battle lines were already drawn before Trump made his announcement, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., declaring he would not vote for any of the individuals on TrumpÂ’s short list.Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., promised the confirmation vote would happen this fall. Now, the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin the process of reviewing...
  • Brett Kavanaugh Fought the Clinton/Castro Kidnapping of Elian Gonzalez back to Stalinist Cuba

    Townhall ^ | 07/14/2018 | Humberto Fontova
    If we needed more proof (atop the media panic) that President Trump nominated the right SCOTUS candidate here it is: “Kavanaugh represented, on a pro bono basis, six-year-old Elian Gonzalez after the Immigration and Naturalization Service decided to return him to Cuba. Kavanaugh was among a series of lawyers who sought legal injunctions to stop INS…from sending the boy back to Cuba…” Whoops! I already hear the caterwauling about “separating immigrant children from their parents!” So let’s clear that up first: The genuine issue during the Elian Gonzalez circus had NOTHING to do with “parental rights,” as the Castro/Fake News...
  • Major Breach As UK Security Allowed Protesting Paraglider To Fly Within Yards Of Trump In Scotland

    GP ^ | 07/14/18 | Kristinn Taylor
    This was an appalling security breach that could have resulted in dozens killed and wounded–including President Trump. Friday night soon after Trump arrived at his Trump Turnberry golf club in Scotland, a Greenpeace protester flying a motored paraglider with a large anti-Trump banner hanging below flew within yards overhead of Trump who was outside receiving guests, forcing him to race inside with his Secret Service detail. Inexplicably, first U.K. security on the perimeter and then U.S. security on top and around the building allowed the paraglider to fly unmolested over Trump, members of his national security team, senior administration officials...

    Breitbart ^ | 7/13/2018
    Pundits and some news organizations on the left seem to be parroting the latest progressive talking point to oppose President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, focusing on Kavanaugh’s race to argue he is not a diverse pick for the nation’s top court. Earlier this week, Breitbart News reported that in a clear attempt to deploy the time-tested progressive tactic of divisive warfare, Demand Justice, the activist organization at the center of opposing Kavanaugh established a talking point on its website that “Trump’s judges are overwhelmingly white men.” Demand Justice is founded by former members of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential...

    https://www.washingtonpost.com ^ | July 12, 2018 | Paul Waldman
    Abortion and the fate of Roe v. Wade are always near the center of the debate on any Supreme Court nomination. The controversy over nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh’s views on Roe offers a window into a system conservatives established a few decades ago to produce the kind of justices who would be fervent advocates for their cause, while also being just restrained enough in their beliefs to be confirmed. As a piece of political strategy, it’s absolutely brilliant, and it could hardly be working any better. Among other things, it allows Republicans to finesse issues such as abortion on which...

    Warning: Autostart video Just 80 miles east of Silicon Valley, one of the wealthiest regions in the country, is Stockton, California — once known as America's foreclosure capital. Soon, the former bankrupt city will become the first in the country to participate in a test of Universal Basic Income, also known as UBI. Stockton will give 100 residents $500 a month for 18 months, no strings attached. The nontraditional system for distributing wealth guarantees that citizens receive a regular sum of money. The goal is to create an income floor no one will fall beneath. The concept of Universal Basic...
  • Scoop: Trump wants tough new Air Force One paint job

    Axios ^ | 12JUL18 | Mike Allen
    President Trump wants to update the paint job on the next version of Air Force One, ditching the iconic robin's-egg blue (which he calls a "Jackie Kennedy color") for a bolder, "more American" look. The big picture: Trump rarely gets into the weeds of government negotiations. But he sat down in the Oval Office with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg in February to personally hammer out the $4 billion deal for a pair of replacement 747s for use as Air Force One (the call sign for whatever Air Force plane the president is on).

    ---snip--- Government has three primary functions. It should [1] provide for military defense of the nation. It should [2] enforce contract between individuals. It [3] should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government, in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the costs come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” —Milton Friedman I found this on numerous blogs. There is an amazing amount of truth behind this heartfelt meme.

    A day in the life of some loathsome Democrats.Wow. What a day on Capitol Hill. Rogue FBI agent Peter Strzok, married, long-time FBI powerhouse, having long-term affair with other FBI agent named Miss Lisa Page, had sent texts over his official FBI phone calling Trump supporters “pieces of s–t,” had said he could “smell” them at a Walmart in southern Virginia. Had promised Lisa Page that the FBI would prevent Trump from being elected just as he was starting the fake Trump-Russia collusion probe. Had said that even when Trump was elected, the FBI would cook up something to keep...
