In the not-too-distant future, Marine Corps 7-ton trucks may be able to diagnose worn-out parts before they go bad, put in an order for a relevant replacement and get the part 3D printed and shipped to their location to be installed — all without a human in the loop.

Our Elections are not a Suicide Pact

By Jack Perry

July 11, 2017


After Trump’s meeting with Putin, I’ve never heard people clamoring for a war so loudly. “Trump is not protecting us from Putin!” “We’re under attack by the Russians!” “Someone needs to do something!” “We need to stop the Russians before it’s too late!” “We need to get tough with the Russians!” “The Russians hacked into our nuclear facilities and we’re in danger!” And this gem: “We need regime change in Russia!”

The Truth About ISIS and the CIA’s Hand in its Creation

BY IWB · JULY 7, 2017

Sharing is caring!

by Robert Carbery

Not long ago I wrote about the CIA’s ties to the creation of the Islamic State through the narrative laid out by WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange. The intelligence agency’s meddling in Afghanistan and arming the Mujahideen eventually led to the creation of Al Qaeda which would later branch off into what is now ISIS.

Today, [youtube http://youtube.com/w/?v=ORYL8jPtpQU] we are “dealing” with in the sands of Syria and Iraq in addition to individual attacks from ISIS sympathizers in Europe and the West.

How Greece Became A Guinea Pig For A Cashless And Controlled Society

As Greece moves closer to becoming a cashless society, it is clear that the country’s attitude towards cash is reckless and dangerous. The supposed convenience of switching to a cash-free system comes with a great deal of risk, including needless overreach by the state.

ATHENS (Analysis)– Day by day, we’re moving towards a brave new world where every transaction is tracked, every purchase is recorded, the habits and preferences of everyone noted and analyzed. What I am describing is the “cashless society,” where plastic and electronic money are king, while banknotes and coins are abolished.

Is America Still a Nation?

by Tyler Durden
 Jul 4, 2017

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,

In the first line of the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776, Thomas Jefferson speaks of “one people.” The Constitution, agreed upon by the Founding Fathers in Philadelphia in 1789, begins, “We the people…”

And who were these “people”?

In Federalist No. 2, John Jay writes of them as “one united people … descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs…”

The Fraud of the White Helmets

Hollywood buys into yet another lie
Philip Giraldi

I actually forced myself to watch the documentary The White Helmets, which is available on Netflix. It is 40 minutes long, is of high quality cinematographically speaking, and tells a very convincing tale that was promoted as “the story of real-life heroes and impossible hope.” It is overall a very impressive piece of propaganda, so much so that it has won numerous awards including the Oscar for Best Documentary Short this year and the White Helmets themselves were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. More to the point, however, is the undeniable fact that the documentary has helped shape the public understanding of what is going on in Syria, delivering a Manichean tale that depicts the “rebels” as always good and Bashar al-Assad and his government as un-redeemably evil.
