I was thinking we could make it to 2017-2020 before experiencing Interesting Times. But now I wonder…
The endgame for Greece in the Euro has arrived. Russia and perhaps even China are rumored to be ready to swoop in, providing support in return for Russian military bases.
The Federal Reserve is insolvent—leveraged more than double what Lehman Brothers was a few years ago when its collapse nearly acted as a Black Hole to the entire world economic system.

It would be nice, when Madonna praises Margaret Thatcher as a positive example, if she would follow it.
I have to admit, the fact that Madonna even wanted to praise Margaret Thatcher is impressive to me. But people who make their living by being popular can’t really afford to ever offend their base. And giving props to Margaret Thatcher on Instagram definitely offended her base.
The Queen of Pop found herself under a wave of criticism after she shared a picture of the Read more [...]
Over $400,000 is being spent to “study” the “meaning and function” of first “penetrative same-sex sexual experiences” of Black Youths.
I really am not sure what to say about this news story and the Washington Free Beacon: “Feds Spent $410,265 Studying ‘Satisfaction’ Levels of Young Gay Men’s First Time.”
The four-year study, being conducted by Johns Hopkins University, is examining the “meaning and function” of first “penetrative same-sex sexual experiences.”
“Prior Read more [...]
More people are expressing support for the Second Amendment than those who oppose it.
Back on April 10, I wrote about what I considered the “complete failure” of the propaganda push against guns that started with the Sandy Hook mass shooting. In that case, my evidence was gun ownership. Now that data can be complemented with a Pew survey on attitudes toward guns:
For most of the 1990s and the subsequent decade, a substantial majority of Americans believed it was more important to control Read more [...]
Toni Morrison says she wants “to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager.”
Ed Krayewski at Reason.com says that this is “borderline sociopathic.” Drop the first word and then I will agree.
He quotes from Toni Morrison’s interview at the Telegraph:
I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back," Morrison says finally. "And I want to see a white man convicted for raping a black woman. Then when you ask me, 'Is it [racism] over?', I will say yes."
That anyone could Read more [...]
The Constitution gives the Senate authority to ratify treaties or not, no matter what Climate-Change-believers think.
Arthur Milikh has written a revealing piece at the Daily Signal: “What the Left’s Moments of Condescension Reveal.”
Sometimes the left unwittingly throws gems our way. These come in rare moments of exasperation, rather than the usual poise the left displays. The transformation of America, after all, requires quiet, subtle movements, coordinated with high-minded propaganda. Read more [...]
We have an international event in which Muslims are killing Christians and the President won’t acknowledge it as real persecution.
I’ve written before about both George W. Bush’s and Barack Obama’s lack of action on behalf of the persecuted church.
Now Kirsten Powers nails it in regard to Obama.
From USA Today: “Christians thrown overboard left to drown by Obama.”
What do you call it when 12 men are drowned at sea for praying to Jesus?
Answer: Religious persecution.
Yet, when Read more [...]
A new currency would allow our elites the control over us that they crave.
As I was saying the other day…
From Doug Casey’s International Man blog: “The Crowning Glory of Keynsianism.”
Readers of this publication will know that for some time, I’ve forecasted the creation of a new monetary system by which governments and banks gain total control over all monetary transactions.
On the surface of it, this may seem an impossible goal, as it would be so all-encompassing and would eliminate Read more [...]
An armed bystander fired back at a shooter, neutralizing him as a threat.
The next best thing to having a firearm on your person when you need it is being near an armed bystander who is skillful and courageous enough to save your life. Famously, Chicago has been extremely resistant to allowing residents to exercise their right to bear arms, despite the Second Amendment.
Only a year ago, it would have been illegal to be an armed bystander with the ability to intervene during a criminal attack. Read more [...]
L.A. stage actors want to be exempt from minimum wage hikes because they don’t want their employers driven out of business.
This is great but it is infuriating. Doesn’t anyone realize that all other businesses are affected by the same economic forces?
I’m referring to this story at the New York Times about L.A. stage actors: “Actors’ Equity Pushes for Minimum Wage, but Not All Members Want It.”
They rehearse for weeks, often in run down theaters that were once garages or retail Read more [...]
The Colorado Civil Rights Commission has ruled that homosexual bakers are free to refuse service; only Christians can discriminate according to the law.
From Yahoo Politics: “Azucar Bakery did not discriminate by refusing to make anti-gay cakes: Colorado.”
The American Civil Liberties Union stepped in to represent the gay couple after they filed a discrimination complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which concluded that Craig and Mullins had in fact suffered discrimination. Read more [...]
Supposedly the next President has a “tremendous opportunity” to remake Obamacare without Congress.
Does anyone really want decisions about their health care subject to political considerations? This means putting your health decisions into the hands of men or women who take massive bribes in the form of campaign donations (from those who financially benefit from such decisions), and who will not be subject to the system they erect for everyone else.
The opening line in this Associated Press Read more [...]
