R3publicans:  The ‘War on Terror’: The Globalization of Perpetual War

William J. Astore Posted on January 5, 2018

The map reveals that America’s war on terror has spread to 76 countries, as shown below:

R3publicans:  Mao and Again

It is becoming a cliché that America is undergoing its own version of Chairman Mao’s Cultural Revolution.

Obama’s 2012 reelection strategy unleashed energies reminiscent of those that plagued China from 1966 through Mao’s death in 1976. The most obvious example is the current urge to topple statues of past American heroes, which is reminiscent of the countless attacks on Chinese cultural sites by youthful Red Guards, such as the ransacking of Confucius’ tomb in 1966.

R3publicans:  Climate Change – Is this a Cold Blip or a Big Deal?

By Martin Armstrong

Armstrong Economics

QUESTION: Is it in your view a minor cold blip or “OMG we’re all going to freeze to death and run out of food ?” BR

ANSWER: We are looking at an unbelievable decline in the energy output of the sun which appears to be the most rapid decline in nearly 10,000 years. The Global Warming crowd may be setting society up for mass famine and death because they are deliberately pointing everyone in the opposite direction to get their portion of the $1 billion grants. Natural disasters are the most disastrous when the energy output of the sun declines. There has been a fatal interaction of ecological, agricultural, economic, and political factors that seem to be setting the stage for at least a repeat of what is known as the Great Famine of 1315-1317. The Great Famine started with bad weather in spring 1315. Crop failures lasted through 1316 until the summer harvest in 1317, and Europe did not fully recover until 1322. The period was marked by extreme levels of crime, disease, mass death and even cannibalism and infanticide. The crisis set in motion the great economic collapse that began during the fourteenth century. In our arrogance, we seem to believe we have conquered every aspect of the planet and many argue we can even alter the climate of the planet.

R3publicans:  Will ABC really tell us what happened at Waco in 1993?

If ABC’s ‘Truth and Lies: Waco’ documentary trailer is any indication, it will simply fortify the Waco lies.

By Dan Gifford, Patch Contributor | Jan 2, 2018

Several network pieces have aired about the 1993 attack by government forces against the Branch Davidian religious sect since my film, “Waco: The Rules of Engagement (WTRE),” told the real facts about that sorry episode. In recognition, WTRE received an Oscar nomination, the National Emmy for Outstanding Investigative reporting, The International Documentary Association’s highest award, among others, and led the world Human Rights Watch film tour.

Oklahoma Watchman:  Fallin's Lies

DO YOU THINK THIS POLITICIAN WOULD LIE TO YOU?

IS SHE CAPABLE OF LYING TO THE STATE SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES?

THE ANSWER TO BOTH WOULD BE YES

THE WATCHMAN

Why in the world has it become natural for politicians to lie? Two of longest serving members of the U.S. House of Representatives consistently vote against the values of the U.S. Constitution, yet they come home every time and campaign as Conservatives. Our entire state legislature, with a few exceptions, does the same thing. As an example the Oklahoma State Constitution orders that a state Constitutional Convention be held every twenty years. The last one was held in 1974. That should tell people something. We the People of the State of Oklahoma have not had a Constitutional Government since 1994. That is over twenty three years that they have willfully and knowingly plundered the state and the people for their own benefit.
