POMERLEAU: Enabling American companies to compete at home and abroad – Washington Times

Punch-_Income_Tax_1907

This is a compelling article on tax reform, well worth a read: POMERLEAU: Enabling American companies to compete at home and abroad – Washington Times. The massive scope of our broken tax code is enough to fill several college courses, and will not be solved in one blog post. But it is important to reiterate […]

MUST WATCH: Bill Whittle Explains Why Benghazi Matters

277657172_80_80

Why Benghazi matters. (Hint: Yes, it still matters.) This video does a succinct and complete job of explaining why many folks are still outraged about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, and why we still want answers. Four Americans were killed, and it’s being called a “witch hunt”. via The Right Scoop: Related articles Bill Whittle Goes […]

Brilliant!

Brilliant!

It was only a matter of time. Drones outfitted with infrared cameras are being used – not by cops (yet), but by extortionists – to locate grow-ops. Once found, they move in for their cut of the profits. Like this:Like Loading…

White House Spins Obama’s Role in Benghazi

White House Spins Obama’s Role in Benghazi

Reposted from Heritage.org: With the weekend’s grand slam appearance on the Sunday talk shows by yet another official unqualified to talk about Benghazi, the Obama Administration has again shot itself in the foot. White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer attempted to defend U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s mischaracterization of the Benghazi terrorist attack, which she blamed […]

Northwest Coal Terminals Advance Despite Opposition From Environmental Groups | FreedomWorks

7252588898_7bd7af91fd

As I’ve documented in previous posts, the organized environmental left is marshalling forces to oppose Powder River Basin (PRB) coal exports to Asia via ports in the Pacific Northwest. Despite their best efforts at fear mongering about supposed environmental effects, local officials are beginning to push back against the prevailing narrative. Realizing that the opposition […]

Massive Drop in Solar Activity this Solar Cycle

pic2

A year ago I said that this solar cycle (Solar Cycle 24) would be the weakest in 100 years.  It seems even I under predicted out big of a drop it would be.  Now it now appears to be one of the weakest solar cycle in almost 200 years.  So far NASA has not yet […]

The New World Wars

The New World Wars

Forget The Bionic Man, and don’t be worrying about anthrax. The future of warfare is evolutionary, and it’s a lot closer than you’d think – if, indeed, it hasn’t already begun: The most realistic future biomods apocalypse is one in which a hostile foreign government or terror group finds ways to subtly change a lot of people.

Will Obama Let the U.N. Seize The Internet?

who.controls.internetx519

It’s disgusting that we even have to ask such a question regarding an American president, but Obama’s certainly no friend to free speech or keeping American sovereignty safe from foreign control. The world’s tyrants would love nothing more than to get control of the one place where international free speech still exists. Leo Kelion reports […]

Texas Threatens To Arrest U.N. Election ‘Observers’, U.N. Throws Fit

You can always count on Texas to step up to the plate when state sovereignty is at stake. Kathleen McKinley reports at the Houston Chronicle: A U.N.-affiliated group called OSCE says it intends to send observers from other countries to observe our elections here in Texas. Yes, you read that right. A UN group is […]

Report: Panetta Lied, CIA Ops Were Denied Requests For Help Three Times During Benghazi Attack

When CIA operatives on the ground in Benghazi asked for help, their requests were not only denied, but they were told to “stand down” and leave Ambassador Stevens and his staff to the mercy of the terrorists!   Two former SEALS died trying to save their fellow Americans while their superiors refused repeatedly to send help. […]

White House Watched Attack Live As Americans Died, Refused To Send Help

Unbelievable! HE KNEW.   White House officials watched LIVE via drone feed as American citizens were being killed in Bengazi.   They knew it was an Islamic terrorist attack AS IT HAPPENED.   Our fighter jets were only only 1 hour away.  The attack lasted 7 hours, and they DID NOTHING.   Obama went to […]

Doing The Job American Media Won’t Do

Doing The Job American Media Won’t Do

Univision has been the only broadcast media daring to ask some tough questions of Barky, and now they’re taking it a step further: airing tonightat 7 p.m PT with English subtitles, their “Here and Now” program explores Barky’s gun-running operation in-depth. A person familiar with the recent congressional hearings called Univision’s findings “the holy grail” that Congress […]

Obama Admin. blames US troops for Afghan ‘friendly fire’ attacks, orders ‘sensitivity training’

AS190_Afghan_G_20091023173851-553x350

Obama is more than welcome to haul his “sensitive” behind to the front lines and see how hospitable of a welcome he’d get from these terrorists. Our troops deserve better than being insulted and betrayed by this sorry pretender of a “commander-in-chief”! Paul Sperry reports at the New York Post: Afghan security forces, our supposed […]

U.S. as supplicant or strong nation? It is our choice!

Yesterday, as you know, was the eleventh anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks perpetrated against our nation by Jihadist radicals that murdered over 3,000 people from around the globe in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. I remember President George W. Bush, like him or not, standing up with a bullhorn talking about how […]

  • Senate committee discusses collective bargaining transparency August 17, 2017
    The Senate Commerce & Labor Committee held a work session yesterday on “public transparency in collective bargaining negotiations.” Despite the strong mandate for government transparency declared by the people in the Open Public Meetings Act, government employee contracts are usually negotiated in secret, meaning an important and costly taxpayer expense is hidden until the final bill comes due. There […]

  • Rep. Orwall to co-chair national Military and Veterans Task Force August 17, 2017
    Earlier this month, the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), a bipartisan organization that provides research, technical assistance and opportunities for policymakers to exchange ideas on the most pressing state issues, selected Speaker Pro-Tem Tina Orwall (D-Des Moines) as co-chair of the Military & Veterans Affairs Task Force. “This is truly an honor and a great privilege,” said Orwall, who […]
  • “Quick Win” for Buses = Loss for Commuters August 18, 2017
    New York City rail transit lines have fallen on hard times, with frequent delays, accidents, and even trains not running at all. While Governor Cuomo has declared a state of emergency, some transit advocates want to make sure buses aren’t forgotten in any multi-billion-dollar fix. Some of their ideas, such as having people pay before […]
  • Black Crater Fire August 17, 2017
    The internet and phone service were both down in Camp Sherman yesterday afternoon and evening, which is when I would normally write the next day’s Antiplanner. So instead I took some night photos of the Milli Fire, which was burning on about 256 3,500 acres a few miles from here. Click image for a larger […]
  • Streamlining Infrastructure Approvals August 16, 2017
    President Trump issued an executive order yesterday aimed at streamlining the federal approval process for infrastructure projects. Contrary to the impression given by press reports, the order doesn’t repeal any environmental laws or rules. All it really does, the White House explains, is require federal agencies to work together to speed existing approval processes with […]
