  1. April 15/16, 2017 Beware the Dogs of War: Is the American Empire on the Verge of Collapse? By John W. Whitehead

    Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes… known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.… No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. — James Madison

    Waging endless wars abroad (in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and now Syria) isn’t making America—or the rest of the world—any safer, it’s certainly not making America great again, and it’s undeniably digging the U.S. deeper into debt. In fact, it’s a wonder the economy hasn’t collapsed yet.

    • Let's break this down….

      The asslifter's excuse for terrorism is American presence in the ME. We'll leave, when all of them leave the USA and that's not likely to happen…

        • That was a Pentagon run by Progressives…..

          and I'm including both of the Globalist Bushes in that description….

          • I always refer to actual history but this is just me.

            October 18, 1994 Remarks on the Nuclear Agreement With North Korea William J. Clinton

            Good afternoon. I am pleased that the United States and North Korea yesterday reached agreement on the text of a framework document on North Korea's nuclear program. This agreement will help to achieve a longstanding and vital American objective: an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula. This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world. It reduces the danger of the threat of nuclear spreading in the region. It's a crucial step toward drawing North Korea into the global community.

          • William J. Clinton, a Globalist Progressive…..

            and he never met a dicktaster that he didn't like….

          • I know my history…..

            and that's why I'm not a member of either party….

          • I lost my rose colored glasses long ago as well and a matter of fact when I posting here a long time back. How long has it been now?

          • Longer than a coon's age….

            and I have no trust in elites who see the people as cattle…

          • As few as possible….

            An associate of mine, doing an executive security gig, overheard some elites talking about livestock and they weren't refering to four legged animals….

  2. GEORGIA'S 6th District is center stage for the seething left. An article at thehill.com reported that "election machines were stolen". Wouldn't surprise me if it's true.

    But here's a potential problem as I see it: Despite GA's Sixth District being a predominantly Consertivave precinct – imo, there are just TOO MANY candidates running on the GOP side. And they clawed each other along the way. Stupid.

    Hollywood has big $$$$ at stake here. .

    Should the 6th Congressional seat be lost to the left – we will all know why.

    IF the GOP does lose it, Will it in any way be a "sign" that DT's voters are turning on him? Not at all. Rassmussen has DT at a 50% approval rating. IF the dems take the Sixth District, it will be because the GOP still have THEIR HEADS UP THEIR @$$ES! It's that simple.

    • Here is more on this topic. Dec 12, 2016 Georgia Official Says Homeland Security Tried To Hack Their State’s Voter Database

      While most of the country frets over Russia’s role in the 2016 election, the state of Georgia has come forward saying that they’ve traced an IP from a hack of their voter database right back to the offices of the Department of Homeland Security. Apparently we need to focus on protecting our vote from our own government.

      • 1. The Russia thingy? (eyeroll)

        Not even a crate of Viagara could keep up that liberal farse! It's DEAD!

        2. If DHS did try to hack it, lets not forget that it was run by the OBAMA admn! And it was the head of the DNC herself that rigged and torpedoed comrad Bernie Sanders's REAL chances of becoming the nominee!

        Their accusatory-grenades are blowin up in their own two-faces!

          • The "problem" is that, during the Eisenhower era, the US and the USSR were the only nations w/ nukes. Now NK; and Pakistan has nukes! And very soon Iran will have them too…thanks to the Obama admn and the UN!

  3. And Then There Were Three

    The NKorea's bloodthirsty communist dictator Kim Jong un says he'd now test a missile every week. Now President Trump ordered two more carrier groups towards the NK coast. For the past 8yrs the deadliest enemies of the USA had gotten used to a apologetic and submissive Obama admn – where their Foreign Policy ranged from bowing to a king, to having Putin press a toy button, to drawing red lines, to global goreming, to using what the Obama admn called "Strategic PATIENCE" where NK was concerned. It all added up to a do-nothing; indifferent; and politically correct agenda.

    And it's all packaged under the label: "Progress".

    Now the US has its fly all the way down along w/ their skivvies. It's come to a use-it or lose-it situation. To back down now would make the CIC and the USA look like a total laughing stock! Trump can't just "walk away" like it's a mere business deal here. 2018 and 2020 may be riding on this.
