Nearly two times a week in the United States, a white police officer killed a black person during a seven-year period ending in 2012, according to the most recent accounts of justifiable homicide reported to the FBI.
On average, there were 96 such incidents among at least 400 police killings each year that were reported to the FBI by local police. The numbers appear to show that the shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., last Saturday was not an isolated event in American policing. Read The Full Story
Whether we care to admit it or not, the globalists have brought the people of this country to the battlefield.
There is a lot to be learned from the events in Ferguson, MO. Most notably, as we progress through the three stages of revolution, it is important to note that the fight between self-determination and self-rule vs. the autocratic aims of the globalists is about to turn deadly. Reed the Full Story
Republican and Democratic members of the United States Congress have joined forces to encourage Scotland not to vote for independence on September 18.
A motion tabled in the House of Representatives, signed by 27 congressmen and women, expresses support for "a united, secure, and prosperous United Kingdom".
House resolution 713 speaks about the "special relationship" between the UK and US and references Winston Churchill as evidence of the "unprecedented depth of cooperation and the extensive historic ties between the two nations".
"Throughout the 20th and early 21st centuries, the United States and the United Kingdom fought together in several struggles, including the First and Second World Wars, in which millions of American and British soldiers sacrificed for their countries," it says.
"Millions of Americans have Scottish roots and identify with their Scottish ancestry, and Scottish people and culture have had a profound effect on the United States throughout its history." Read The Full Story
There is a growing awareness that the militarization of domestic police forces is the effective declaration of war against the civilian population in the United States. The local police force’s abusive militarized response to protesters in Ferguson, Missouri is sparking outrage around the world and even on capitol hill there is now a growing bipartisan criticism of what is going on as reported by Reuters.
The military style local police forces in the United States are about as un-American and unconstitutional as you can get. This incident in Ferguson, Missouri that has been witnessed as brandishing military weapons of war against unarmed citizens is in all honesty simply treason against everything the Founding Fathers fought a revolution against. This is NOT what a “free democratic” nation does to its own people. Read The Full Story
Usually August is back-to-school month, when kids pick up their shiny new books and head to class. But this time it looks a bit more like back-to-war. The war profiteers will be hatching new schemes to cash in on misery and you and I will be picking up the tab.
Whoopie! We’re all gonna pay…
As the crisis in Iraq unfolds, it’s worth thinking about the tremendous cost of fighting. The loss of life is the most devastating price, but the loss of all the productive things that could have been done with the money — from teaching our children to repairing our infrastructure to giving our seniors a bit of security after a life of hard work — is nothing short of catastrophic.
Here’s a look at some of the mind-blowing costs of war.
1. Most expensive war ever fought: World War II (1941-1945).
Coming in at somewhere between $4 and $5 trillion, the second World War tops every other war ever fought in U.S. history for its incredible expense. (It also wins the prize for number of humans slaughtered and number of nations involved.)
This costly war began with Nazi Germany’s blitzkrieg against Poland in 1939, and quickly engulfed Europe. At first, the U.S. was neutral, but committed to war in 1941 following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Over the course of the four-year war, 16 million U.S. troops were deployed on two fronts, battling Germany and Japan. Read The Full Story
