Obama and his closest aides have been exposed. Not just as a cabal of lying, preening, and corrupt politicos, but an administration so wedded to authoritarian progressive doctrine they will hammer at the load-bearing walls of liberty in pursuit of their statist agenda.
This is because the Obama administration’s vision of America is inherently in conflict with the Bill of Rights. Recent scandals are merely the latest skirmish in this ongoing [...]
A Summary of the U.S. Senate’s Draconian Gun Control Proposals
Georgia police acquired $200 million worth of military-grade vehicles and weapons through DoD
WHY IS GOVERNMENT STOCKPILING GUNS, AMMO?
Is the U.S. government getting ready for a war we don’t know about?
And, if that’s why Washington is stockpiling massive amounts of ammunition (hollow points, by the way), why is Homeland Security doing the buying instead of the Defense Department?
Here’s what presidential candidate Barack [...]
Elon Musk, the billionaire founder and CEO of the private spaceflight company SpaceX, wants to help establish a Mars colony of up to 80,000 people by ferrying explorers to the Red Planet for perhaps $500,000 a trip.
In Musk’s vision, the ambitious Mars settlement program would start with a pioneering group of fewer than 10 people, who would journey to the Red Planet aboard a huge reusable rocket powered by liquid [...]

We are in terrible straits this presidential election. We have a choice between a president who has posed more of a danger to personal freedom than any in the past 150 years and a Republican team that wants to return to Bush-style big government.
President Barack Obama has begun to show his hand at private fundraisers and in unscripted comments during his campaign. And the essence of [...]
Seeing the future: A younger Bill Gates knew his technology was world-changing
Bill Gates changed our world, and the odds are that most readers have touched some kind of Windows machine today.
What is startling is the amount of foresight the Microsoft founder had, which is documented in his 1995 book, The Road Ahead, and – even further in past – a 1987 interview where Gates predicted LCD televisions, Siri-style voice recognition, [...]
Prior to President Barack Obama’s marathon 54 minute speech in Ohio today, the Obama campaign sent our several statements promising the speech would be a major address framing the campaign going forward. Despite the hype, the speech was mainly a rehash of themes and ideas from the president’s recent stump speeches and his remarks were widely panned as overly long by the political press corps.
In the speech, President Obama outlined [...]
Lenses can let troops see through ‘eyes’ of drones flying above
Can ‘layer’ target information over view of world
Contact lenses don’t impede fighter’s vision
Equivalent to a 240-inch 3D television from 10 feet
Google wowed the world this week with its Project Glass computer glasses – but the U.S. Army is investing in a technology one step ahead.
The Pentagon has placed an order with Innovega for lenses which focus 3D battlefield information from drones [...]
Obama Tries to Deflect Blame on Solyndra, Keystone
“Obviously we wish Solyndra hadn’t gone bankrupt. Part of the reason they did was the Chinese were subsidizing their solar industry and flooding the market in ways Solyndra couldn’t compete. But understand, this was not our program per se.”
– President Obama talking to National Public Radio’s “Marketplace.”
President Obama is on a swing-state campaign blitz this week, looking to stifle voter anger over high energy [...]
From Washington Times:
Jordi Munoz had no training. Scant schooling. Little money. He also had a video-game console and nothing else to do.
So he built his own drone.
A Mexican native, Mr. Munoz married an American citizen and moved to Riverside,Calif., in 2007. While waiting for his green card, the 21-year-old was marooned in his apartment, unable to work, attend school or obtain a driver’s license.
On the other hand, he had an Internet connection. A [...]
Picking Osawatomie, Kansas as the site for an address is the kind of over-the-top symbolism that would make even Aaron Sorkin blush.
In 1910, Theodore Roosevelt, then a year and a half out of the White House, used the small town as the location to announce a detailed plan for the philosophy he called “New Nationalism,” an expansive progressive agenda, one he hoped would form the basis of the platform of [...]
I thought Michael Moore’s email was worthwhile. Here it is.
Where Does Occupy Wall Street Go From Here? …a proposal from Michael Moore
Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011
This past weekend I participated in a four-hour meeting of Occupy Wall Street activists whose job it is to come up with the vision and goals of the movement. It was attended by 40+ people and the discussion was both inspiring and invigorating. Here is what [...]
From Economic Policy Journal:
Gary North writes:
Ellen Brown leans so far to the left that her left shoulder scrapes the pavement.
That this extreme leftist should get a hearing within the grassroots conservative movement is just one more bit of evidence that tens of thousands of members of the grassroots conservative movement do not know “come here” from “sic ‘em.”
She has already praised Ben Bernanke to the heavens for QE2. You can [...]
Video: Ron Paul’s 89 Seconds in the CBS News GOP Presidential Debate
Ron Paul doesn’t bow to the corporate hierarchy, he doesn’t take their money, and he isn’t corruptable. In short, he is the a nightmare for the ruling elite, and they will, by all means of nasty propaganda and psyops, marginalize him, and silence him before he awakens too many of the entranced masses. Paul’s vision for America [...]
The flat tax is such a popular idea in conservative circles that Texas Governor Rick Perry is trying to revive his presidential primary campaign by proposing one.
Except for the flat tax part.
It turns out Perry’s plan isn’t flat, doesn’t eliminate the current tax code, as many conservative elites claim to want, and would likely blow a huge whole in the federal budget.
Perry’s plan doesn’t scrap existing tax law altogether, but [...]
The Bangor Daily News
The “9-9-9” plan that has helped propel businessman Herman Cain to the front of the GOP presidential field would stick many poor and middle-class people with a hefty tax increase while cutting taxes for those at the top, tax analysts say.
The plan would do away with much of the current tax code and impose a 9 percent personal income tax, a [...]

NADIA: For days, Mumpy would listen quietly as the elders discussed how only an eye surgery could save her father’s vision and a kidney transplant her brother’s life. But both surgeries were beyond the family’s meagre means. So, Mumpy hit upon a plan, which to her 12-year-old mind seemed the answer to all troubles. She would kill herself, which would save the dowry, too, and [...]
The Greek government has narrowly won a key vote of confidence, allowing the Prime Minister to continue his fight for more cuts. Parliament now has to decide whether to impose austerity measures worth billions of Euro, in order to secure a second EU bailout, a lifeline for the country’s paralysed economy. But as Sara Firth reports, people on the streets aren’t sharing the government’s [...]
While DC may continue playing its debt ceiling soap opera, crunch time for the Treasury is approaching as the first of three auctions is on deck: the first one for $32 billion in 3 Year Notes. The total raised will be $72 billion without any offsets from maturities. Elsewhere, the Treasury will catch a $16 billion break after it settles $100 billion in Bill [...]
NEW YORK — Speaker John Boehner will call on Congress to offset a debt ceiling hike with spending cuts of a greater amount, an ambitious proposal that puts House Republicans on a collision course with Democrats who want much more modest spending restrictions attached to the vote.
“Without significant spending cuts and reforms to reduce our debt, there will be no debt limit increase,” Boehner plans to tell the Economic [...]

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will describe his plans for long-term deficit reduction Wednesday, in a move likely to kick off a months-long debate with Republicans while alienating some members of his own Democratic Party.
In a midday speech in Washington, Mr. Obama will propose a plan that includes cuts to entitlement programs such as Medicare, limits on military [...]

In the near week since President Obamaâ€™s State of the Union speech, commentators from all sides of the political spectrum have weighed in on the good, bad and innocuous of Obamaâ€™s vision for the countryâ€™s future. Whatâ€™s perhaps not been commented on enough is how unfortunate it is that Obamaâ€™s policies â€“ or those of any President for that [...]
Few economists are predicting a collapse into another ‘Great Depression’ such as that experienced by the US during the late 19th Century and the 1930s.
One economist–Paul Krugman–does warn of an extended severe downturn, though, and paints a picture that is more than bleak.
Tens of millions of unemployed workers…will never work again
Paul Krugman recently wrote an OpEd piece for the NY Times. In the article he outlined his thoughts on why [...]
