Bowl Cut Jr. had a 'slush fund' for running the country--he's blown it all on fuel for missile tests
The day comes when the unstable, maniacal dictator decides it’s enough already, and he’s going to fire a nuclear missile at the United States. Oh sure, they’ll probably destroy him in return, but he’s fat and stupid and his people hate him anyway. What is he clinging to?

Debunking the debunkers; recognizing Israel’s history

Debunking the debunkers; recognizing Israel's history
Vice President Pence did something unthinkable in Jerusalem last week: he referenced the bible in support of Israel’s right to exist.

“The Jewish people held fast to a promise through all the ages, written so long ago, that ‘even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens,’ from there He would gather and bring you back to the land which your fathers possessed.”

According to an article appearing in Maariv, as quoted by the Jerusalem Post, Kerry met a senior Palestinian leader, Hussein Agha, in London recently and told him to convey a clandestine message to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The message was that Abbas should “play for time” and “not yield to President [Donald] Trump’s demands.”

EU Multicultural Blues

EU Multicultural Blues
Oh, No, not Emmanuel Macron too! The French election was suppose to show the liberal world order was not collapsing. At least if you ignore the massacre of liberal Social Democrats in every single voting district across France. The media proclaimed that the populist wave that brought Brexit and Trump was over.

Davos globalists experience what they engineered

Davos globalists experience what they engineered
As globalist billionaires and politicians gather for the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland, they are encouraged to take forty-five minutes out of their busy schedule to “walk in the shoes” of a refugee. As much as benevolent organizations tout this as an opportunity to share the heartache of a refugee’s experience, it is more an exercise in hubris than compassion.

The Big Palestine Lie

The Big Palestine LiePalestinian boss Mahmoud Abbas recently declared that Israel is “a colonial enterprise that has nothing to do with Jewishness”. Moses, King David and thousands of years of Jewish history would disagree. Israel and the Jews are part of the story of human civilization. Over 50% of the human race has a holy book that tells of the Jewish journey to Israel. That includes Mohammed’s own copy of the Koran.

Venezuela still has the world’s largest oil reserves, and no ability to get it out of the ground

Venezuela still has the world's largest oil reserves, and no ability to get it out of the ground
And you thought it was hard to get oil out of the American soil when Obama was president. The problem there was that Obama didn’t want the oil pumped. He preferred to starve the U.S. oil industry while America continued to rely on foreign countries to meet our energy needs, because Obama preferred a weak America with no geopolitical leverage or economic power on the global state.

Neo-Stalinism and the Polish Challenge

Neo-Stalinism and the Polish Challenge
Courts have been turned into leverage for destruction of national democracies by the totalitarian system

In late December, the European Commission announced punitive measures against Poland using the so-called “nuclear option”, Article 7 of the Lisbon Treaty. The reason was the decision of Warsaw to limit the power of judges. The EU considered this an infringement on “freedom, democracy and the rule of law”.

The Real International #resist Movement Behind the Hype

The Real International #resist Movement Behind the Hype
The #resist movement in this country started, by their own website admission, fifty years ago with the protest against the war in Vietnam. Today, they are resisting with vile language and actions our President Trump, his administration, police, all rational Americans who do not believe in anthropogenic global warming/climate change, our borders, our sovereignty, free markets, and anything rational that involves thought instead of rabid feelings. ANTIFA, a very fascistic organization, and BLM, a very racist organization, and pink vagina-hats women, are the most prominent and visible groups of the #resist movement.
