Preparing for the unexpected...
“One of the biggest threats that we face in the U.S. is an economic collapse,” former CIA Officer Jason Hanson writes in his latest Survival Letter.
“You and I both know that government spending is obscenely out of control and we’re in debt up to our ears. The only reason we haven’t had an economic collapse yet is because the dollar is the world’s reserve currency.
This means the U.S. government gets to turn on the printing presses and create dollars out of thin air.
“Other countries don’t have this luxury, which is why over the past several years we’ve seen numerous countries in financial chaos.”
For example, things are so bad in Venezuela right now, Jason says, that “according to news reports, the maximum amount of money a person can get out of an ATM machine is the equivalent of $1.50.
And economists say that the inflation rate in Venezuela could hit 200% by the end of the year.
“Hopefully, you and I never experience 200% inflation and we never walk to the ATM machine and find out we’re only allowed to withdraw a $1.50.
But because we’ve had a socialist President for the past seven years, we have quickly moved in that direction.
“The problem is, you and I aren’t on the board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and we’re not in the White House.
And while we can vote for the person we believe will take this country in the right direction, it’s ultimately up to us to prepare to keep ourselves protected both physically and financially.
“For this, I always recommend having a small amount of cash stored in a fireproof safe (such as a Sentry safe) at home.
“If the dollar collapses, this money won’t be worth much but it’s still a good idea to have some just in case. In addition, have some gold and silver.
“I would get more silver because it’s more affordable and also because it’s in small denominations that gold. In other words, an ounce of silver is worth about $17, whereas an ounce of gold is worth about $1,200.
It’ll be much easier to pay people in silver ounces than in gold ounces unless you’re making a big purchase.”
Also, it’s important that you make sure your home is protected from whatever may happen...
“In the past,” Jason writes, “I’ve written about making your home as undesirable as possible to an intruder.
“This includes having an alarm sign in your front and back yard… cameras… motion sensor lights… quality locks on your front door (Schlage or Medeco)… and of course, an actual alarm system in addition to the signs.
“The fact is, no matter how good our security is, none of us live in the White House surrounded by guards 24/7, which means there’s always the possibility of a home invasion.
And if you react to a home invasion incorrectly, you or a family member could pay the ultimate price.
“First, it should go without saying that you need to have some way to defend yourself if you hear your front door getting kicked in and you hear people walking through your home.
“My choice of weapon is a gun, which I believe is the best self-defense tool. That’s why I keep a gun (in a rapid access safe) on my nightstand. The current gun I have in the safe is a Sig Sauer P226 with a Viridian flashlight/laser combination.
“But, because you should always have a backup, I have an additional firearm in case something happens to the first one. I also have three flashlights sitting on my nightstand just in case the first one I grab to open the safe doesn’t work (even though I test them often.)
“If you or a family member doesn’t like guns, then you need to choose something else whether it’s a knife, baseball bat, or golf club...
But you should be aware that choices like these require you to be very close to the intruder before you can use them and that obviously puts you at risk. You also need to be prepared to react fast with whatever weapon you choose.
“Multiple burglars who’ve been interviewed in prison all say that the first place they go during a burglary is to the master bedroom. This is because they know the bedroom is where people keep their jewelry, money, rare coins, etc.
“So, if you hear your door getting kicked in at 3 a.m. the intruder is mostly likely headed right for you, which means you better get that weapon out quickly and you can’t hesitate in using it.
(Do dry runs to test your reaction time and make sure your weapon is easy to access in three seconds or less.)
“But, let’s assume a worst-case home invasion scenario...
“Let’s say that somehow you are completely caught off guard by home intruders and they’ve got your family surrounded in the living room and you’re looking down the wrong end of a gun.
“Human nature will tell you to comply with these intruders and do exactly what they say and they will let you go unharmed.”
Unfortunately, Jason explains, those instincts could get you killed.
“I realize that all of us want to be hopeful and we want to believe the home intruder when he tells us he won’t hurt us as long as we do everything he asks.
But remember, a criminal is the one promising you this and after you’ve seen their face for hours they’re going to want to dispose of you rather than risk getting caught.”
That, Jason points out, is “what happened to the Petit family (the horrible Connecticut murders that took place several years ago) where they were held for around 10 hours before the mother and two daughters were killed.
“My point is,” Jason writes, “in a home invasion you do not want to sit there with the criminals and do nothing and take their word that they are only going to ransack the house and then go and leave you be.
“I don’t care if they’ve got a gun on you or if they’re carrying a machete. If you do nothing the chances of you dying when they are done is extremely high. But if you fight back as soon as you can you have the chance of saving your family member’s lives.
“Please take some time to think about this. It’s a mental decision you need to make now that way you don’t question yourself or hesitate if you (heaven forbid) ever find yourself in this position.
“You need to be aggressive, you need to fight back… you should never sit there as an easy victim letting the criminals have their way with you because it will probably cost you your life.”
Burglary and your house is going to look like this…
Plan ahead for safe-keeping... what about robberies when you aren’t home?
Most robberies take place when the family is out. Meaning, they case the place for days… maybe even weeks before they make their move.
If you don’t hide your valuables well, chances are, if career burglars ever come in your house, they are going to find them.
Or they will rip everything apart trying. That’s why you need to learn how to think like a burglar…
“Judging from the perspective of the home invaders,” Chris Black writes in the Survivopedia blog, “they have a limited amount of time they can spend searching for your valuables.
“They follow a basic three-point rule when they’re looking for valuable stuff in your place of residence:
ONE: They look for openly displayed valuables.
TWO: They look for the most “interesting” places (storage spaces).
THREE: They take a closer look at other spaces that have the probability of harboring valuables.
“It’s a simple algorithm that maximizes the probability of finding the interesting stuff inside of your residence or place of business in the shortest amount of time.
“Let me share a little psychological trick with you: burglars will always search harder when they fail to discover valuable items.
The less they find, the harder they’ll search if they’re convinced that there’s something worth looking for. You can mitigate the damage from a home invasion by planting “freebies” in obvious or easy-to-find places.”
You can use that to your advantage, says Black.
“If the burglar finds something interesting and relatively valuable in the first few minutes of the search, he may very well call off the search party and leave early instead of risking a prolonged, detailed search that could expose the stuff you don’t want him to find in the first place.
Because time is an important factor, especially in the case of thieves, he may take the plant and run.
“Another thing to keep in mind: home invaders will concentrate on the usual hiding spots such as toilet tanks, refrigerators, couch cushions, mattresses etc. and they will disregard the boring, dull, uninteresting ones such as bottles of shampoo or toothpaste boxes.
A regular home contains hundreds of uninteresting containers, ranging from detergent boxes to sugar packets. It’s very probable that those items will be overlooked.”
For small items, consider the cigar tube door safe.

This next one might sound strange, but it’s probably ridiculously effective for hiding valuables in plain sight.
It’s the head of lettuce safe made by BimBamBanana.
Yes. A safe that looks like a head of lettuce.
And here are few more ideas we thought were interesting, courtesy of the Tipnut blog…
PANTRY: Store items in food containers to keep in the fridge, pantry or freezer. This only works well if you regularly have a lot of items and containers for them to go through.
IRONING BOARD: Pull off the rubber ends on the ironing board leg and voila! a tube for hiding.
SPICES AND HERBS: Empty out and wash well, paint glue all over the inside then fill the bottle with spices again. Dump whatever the glue didn’t hold. You want the spice bottle to look like it’s full of spice.
Fill the bottle with valuables in a plastic bag once the glue and spices are completely dried.
In case you haven't heard, or you are oblivious to the news of the day... America's 'Debt Limit' is now again the latest fabricated crisis in Washington.
Today is July 3rd... and your taxes are still going up... and our country is virtually bankrupt... and going $2 billion dollars deeper in the hole - each and every day. Yet Obama pretends all is well. Obama's debt comes right out of your pocket...
Our nation-state is no model of fiscal responsibility. When Barack Obama took office, the national debt was already an impressive $10 trillion. Today it is $18.5 trillion. The national debt is still growing at a rate of more than $50 million an hour.
Here's Obama's "bull crap" for the week... 07/03/2015
Chief Justice John Roberts was blackmailed!
It’s time to start asking the question. It’s time to be cynical. It’s time to assume the worst of this government.
Has Supreme Court Justice John Roberts been blackmailed or intimidated?
I would put nothing by the Obama administration that lives and rules by the Chicago thug playbook.
Doubt me? On the same day that Justice Roberts and the Supremes upheld Obamacare – again – the key IRS watchdog reported to Congress that the IRS purposely destroyed evidence of a crime.
Is the idea implausible that this same Obama administration that orders IRS attacks, then orders destruction of key evidence, would stop at nothing to save Obama’s signature achievement?
Is it impossible to believe that Obama and his socialist cabal that learned from Saul Alinsky that “the ends justify the means” would hold something over a Supreme Court justice’s head?
It’s time to ask the question loudly and boldly because something is clearly wrong in Washington, D.C.
Is that the purpose of government agencies like the IRS and the NSA that are abusing our rights – to listen to us, to watch us, to find something we’ve done wrong...
And then use it to intimidate, harass, threaten or extort key political figures so that Obama can “fundamentally change America?"
Because something clearly smells rotten in Obamaland-Washington, D.C. Like “the mafia delivering a dead fish to your door” rotten. Conservatives just won national elections in a massive wave, a historic landslide.
We control both houses of Congress; we control the Supreme Court, yet we continue to lose every key vote in Congress and every key Supreme Court ruling.
Suddenly when Republicans win elections, elections have no consequences. Doesn’t this seem odd? Doesn’t something smell rotten, like the fix is in?
Justice Roberts voting for Obamacare twice - is as likely as me voting to save Obamacare. Which makes me wonder why no one has dirt on, one of the dirtiest presidents in our history.
Obama "Pimps" the White House
Obama has all the makings of a pimp. Look what he's done to the White House. It looks like the residence of a pimp. What's next... leopard skin upholstery and carpeting?
He doesn't actually produce anything in the way of results - but he takes credit for fantasy improvements. He doesn't make America better - he lies and cheats.
Obama's legacy is he turned America into the absurd and preposterous. Like we said before... Obama is an "Ass Clown."
The White House…
- Is not just the house of those who are gay or who are not gay.
- It is not the house of just blacks, whites, hispanics, for any specific race.
- It is not the house of just men or of just women.
- It is not just the house of Christians or Jews or any other religion.
- It is not just the house of Atheists or Agnostics.
- It is not just the house of any one person.
- It is not just the house of any one political party.
- It certainly is not Obama's "pimp" house; he’s just a guest.
It is the house of We, the People. It is OUR house.
John Roberts flip-flop statements above: In the first statement regarding saving Obamacare again... he said, "the court has the right to disregard the actual wording of the law as written."
In the second statement regarding gay marriage... he said, "the court can only uphold the law - not make law?"
The privileged class don't have Obamacare?
Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) responded to a Supreme Court decision upholding a key Obamacare provision Thursday - by introducing a bill in the House that would require each of the justices to enroll in the controversial health care program.
“As the Supreme Court continues to ignore the letter of the law, it’s important that these six individuals understand the full impact of their decisions on the American people,” Babin said in a statement.
“That’s why I introduced the SCOTUScare Act to require the Supreme Court and all of its employees to sign up for Obamacare,” the Texas congressman added. “By eliminating their exemption from Obamacare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with!”
President Barack Obama’s controversial health law survived it’s second Supreme Court challenge, when the court upheld its nationwide tax subsides in a 6-3 decision.
Critics immediately skewered the court for the decision, many citing Justice Antonin Scalia’s dissenting opinion to contend the court had become politicized.
The privileged class will always get over on us with our own money.
Obama did a phony sign-up for Obamacare. Do you really think he, the Wookie and the Obametts are going to actually see a doctor on their plan and pay like the rest of us?
The idiots that support him are stupid enough to think so and will actually argue like the fools they are that he is and will.
These people have the money to pretend to use Obamacare but pay cash for the best doctors, they ARE NOT going to go to the same doctors as us “riff-raff”.
In fact, I would bet you a couple paychecks they all have buddies in the medical field that see them for free for access and invite to the awesome parties and such.
Democrats live in a psycho-bubble where they actually believe the Democrat party gives a rats ass about the regular people - even black people...
Which is a total joke because it has been Progressives all along that were the anti-Ebony elites.
In the liberal elite's warped mind... we are all just sheep to be fleeced.
Conservatives need to boycott the boycotters
Univision, NBC and Macys have all boycotted Donald Trump - because he stated the facts about Mexico. Liberals turned his statements into a racial smear, like they always do. But what Trump stated was true:
"Mexico takes advantage of our negotiating stupidity, millions of illegal alien Mexicans are crossing the border, most of these people are poor with minimal skills, and many of these people are druggies, rapists and murders."
Trump also stated: "The fault and failure here is not Mexico's or it's people... it is the fault and failure of America's weak and feeble leadership."
Obama, Democrats and the liberal media all whitewash the immigration problem with false propaganda, and pretend all is well. When someone like Trump speaks the truth, liberals attack and boycott.
Univision, NBC and Macys have all boycotted Donald Trump and his conservative truth. The conservative response should be to promote the boycott of Univision, NBC and Macys.
The Republican party needs to fight 'fire with fire' and get on the offense, instead of their usual lame wimpy reply.
Boycott the Miami Herald... deliberately running false propaganda and lies... part of the liberal fraud
Glenn Beck wasn’t pleased with the Miami Herald on Wednesday, asking his staff to “call the attorneys” over an article written by Pulitzer Prize winner Leonard Pitts Jr. that appeared in the publication.
Beck’s radio co-host Stu Burguiere described the article as a “bizarre” effort to make it seem like those on the right are trying to deny that the Charleston church shooting was about racism.
The article specifically mentions Beck, quoting him the morning after the shooting, before all of the information was known.
“I don’t know why the shooter shot people. He might shoot people because he’s racist. He might have shot people because he’s an anarchist. He might have shot people because he hates Christians,” Beck said at the time.
Pitts, the author of the article, then weighed in: “For all of you, a simple question, what the hell is wrong with you, people? Why is it so hard for you to call racism, racism?”
Liberal race hustler Leonard Pitts, Jr.. These glasses are tinted with Liberalism and lies. Pitts and the Miami Herald are part of the liberal scheme of deception upon America.
“If you actually look at the quote from you, the very first possibility you listed was racism," Burguiere retorted.
“The column came out on June 23rd, with no mention that the quote came out from June 18th, less than 12 hours after he started pulling the trigger. We didn’t know his name at the time. We didn’t know anything, really, about him.”
Within an hour of making the statement, as more information was released, Beck said: “Looks like we have the name now of the killer, and we have some Facebook posts. It looks like he is a straight-up racist.”
“Literally, the first opportunity after being aware of who this person was or any information about him, you call him a straight-up racist,” Burguiere said.
“And there’s a column in the Miami Herald five or six days later, where they accuse you of denying racism?”
Moreover, Burguiere noted, Beck identified the shooter as a racist “over and over again” in the days after the shooting.
“I would like to see if the Miami Herald will step up and add a correction or a retraction of the entire column,” Burguiere said. “It’s shameful and it’s embarrassing for the Miami Herald, if they care. I don’t know. Maybe they’ve given up.”
“Call the attorneys for me because I’m just tired of this. This is clear,” Beck concluded. “They’ve smeared me. … Call the attorneys.”
Beck said it is important that people stand up against the type of “bad smear job” published by the Herald, particularly on social media, because they’re “trying to put us into this little box … of racist hatemongers.”
“We have to start standing up for one another,” Beck said. “We have to start saying, ‘that’s not who we are.’”
Leonard Pitts is extremely racist. His column is the reason I dropped our local paper. His entire existence is centered on getting out the word on how racist white people are. Usually going after Republican politicians.
So it comes as no surprise what I heard on Glenn’s radio show this morning on the column by Leonard Pitts. The best thing that can happen is for this race baiter to get sued! It’s long past time.
All Conservative media is now under attack. Moveon.org and Media Matters being the instigators. I noticed the talking points by the Blaze Trolls match what I see online.
This is pure, out and out FRAUD. The fictitious mainstream media is in it as well.
Who’s sick of this besides me??? Frankly, I can’t see how any normal human being, be it Democrat or Republican and especially if you are a “White Male”, votes Democrat in 2016.
I’ve had enough of this stuff.

Hulk soccer star sends goalkeeper through the net
He shoots, he scores!
In a shot that is too good to be true, 28-year-old international soccer superstar Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, aka “The Hulk,” lives up to his nickname when his single kick of a soccer ball sends the goalie flying through the back of the net.
Many are calling this video a PR stunt, and they are correct. The whole thing was most likely staged for the Hulk’s first day of pre-season training.
It also looks like the hole was cut out of the net in advance.
Hoax or not, it hasn’t stopped the video from going viral. The 13-second clip has more than 6 million views.

The average Democrat voter is too damn stupid... to see that the liberal elites are the 1%?
When the University of Missouri at Kansas City was looking for a celebrity speaker to headline its gala luncheon marking the opening of a women’s hall of fame, one of the names that came to mind was Hillary Rodham Clinton.
But when the former secretary of state’s representatives quoted a fee of $275,000, officials at the public university balked. “Yikes!” one e-mailed another.
So the school booked the next best option: her daughter, Chelsea – for $65,000. How many of you see the stupidity of all this? Remember when NBC paid Chelsea $600,000 per year… for doing nothing.
Liberal elites... getting rich on the backs of the poor and the uninformed.
Donald Trump is running for President... and he's saying what most of us have been thinking for a long time
There are only three people running for president in 2016, who will actually change what's wrong with America. Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina or Dr. Ben Carson.
Why is that? Because the first two are both extremely successful business people. They know how finances work and they have a track record of creating jobs. Dr. Carson is a self-made leading surgeon - and he speaks the truth.
What we always mistakenly do, is elect some smooth talking politician. Career politicians are in it for themselves. That's why America never seems to improve.
WE need him so badly! He CAN turn it all around and he’ll take no BS from any enemy country of ours on earth.
Needless to say... to intelligent people, the man knows how to get jobs for people. Trump if you are smart enough to realize, has given hundreds of thousands of jobs to people...
When he builds another hotel. you need the contractor, the painter, the floor man, the glass man for the windows. I could go on and on. He has employed thousands of jobs to so many people!
Bravo Trump! And good luck to you! It’s obvious the man deeply loves this country. He doesn’t need to do this, run for president, yet it’s clear his heart is breaking, seeing what’s happening to America!
Wise up America and stop voting for these lousy politicians, who won’t do a dam thing once they get in.
It's a bizarro liberal-extremist wacky world these days...
Gays legally getting married? ... transvestites coming out and then being honored for bravery? ...
Now we have robots getting married? What's next - a transvestite liberal running for president?
Breaking News: Hillary Clinton actually a transvestite?
If you began to question your single life when Charles Manson got engaged while in prison, well, we want to prepare you … robots are now getting married.
On Saturday, a robot groom named Frois and a robot bride named Yukirin tied the knot in Tokyo in front of 100 of their closest robot friends and family.
There were invitations, party decorations, a wedding cake and even an orchestra. The ceremony was officiated by a humanoid robot named Pepper, and the two even shared a kiss to formalize the marriage.
The event was organized by Maywa Denki, which produces electronic accessories.
Technically, two robots can get together and "reproduce" another robot in their likeness, but two people of the same sex can't.
Guess that means Chelsea Clinton was adopted... or Bill is a transvestite too!
Janet Jackson... "All For You"

Before the age of 25, she had already sold more than 40 million albums, awarded numerous prestigious awards such as Grammys, billboard awards...
American music awards (won 4 out 12 nominations - a record that she still holds), and various other ASCAP, BMI, humanitarian, and NAACP awards.
President Bush even commended her album Rhythm Nation in 1990!
Janet Jackson honored at BET Awards 2015
The hitmaker was presented with the inaugural "Ultimate Icon Music Dance Visual Award" by good friends and songwriting production team Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
It's been seven (long) years since Janet Jackson released any new music.
And now after teasing her first song in nearly a decade on Twitter, the 49-year-old legend was honored on Sunday night at the BET Awards in Los Angeles.
The “Rhythm Nation” singer, who released her song “No Sleep” last week and announced her “Unbreakable” tour for the fall, received the “Ultimate Icon: Music Dance Visual Award.”

Are you among the "Remnant"?
You do not know and will never know who the "Remnant" are, or where they are, or how many of them there are, or what they are doing or will do...
Two things you know, and no more: first, that they exist; second, that they will find you. -- Albert Jay Nock
It’s June 1936... and an unusual article has made its way into The Atlantic Monthly. Called “Isaiah’s Job,” it appears beneath the byline of one Albert Jay Nock...
His essay tells the story of the Biblical prophet Isaiah, whom the Lord summoned to warn the people of Judea about their wicked courses. They’d fallen sharply out of line with His teachings, and He threatened a severe lesson if they didn’t quit it:
"Tell them what a worthless lot they are." He said, "Tell them what is wrong, and why and what is going to happen, unless they have a change of heart and straighten up. Don't mince matters.
Make it clear that they are positively down to their last chance. Give it to them good and strong and keep on giving it to them."
Isaiah was hot for the job, and he knew the message needed airing. But before he could set out the Lord stopped him cold:
"I suppose perhaps I ought to tell you that it won't do any good. The official class and their intelligentsia will turn up their noses at you and the masses will not even listen.
They will all keep on in their own ways until they carry everything down to destruction, and you will probably be lucky if you get out with your life."
Dumbstruck, Isaiah questioned why he was being asked to deliver His message... if it would fall on deaf ears. Especially since he could go to the gallows for his troubles.
And that’s when the Lord revealed His purpose:
"Ah, you do not get the point. There is a "Remnant" there that you know nothing about. They are obscure, unorganized, inarticulate, each one rubbing along as best he can.
They need to be encouraged and braced up because when everything has gone completely to the dogs, they are the ones who will come back and build up a new society;
And meanwhile, your preaching will reassure them and keep them hanging on. Your job is to take care of the "Remnant", so be off now and set about it."
The "Remnant" …
So what exactly is the "Remnant"? It’s time you knew.
The "Remnant" is a small, virtuous minority of the population with the wisdom and character fit for a free people.
Stamped out of a nobler metal, they stand apart from the mass of men.
Above all they are individualists. Like eagles, they do not flock. They’re found one at a time. They are the aristocrats of the human species, aristocrats not by title or background, but by their superior character.
They live quiet lives out of the spotlight - and distrust those who seek it. They keep to decency even as the society around them coarsens and sinks deep into lunacy.
They find the government they labor under a burden, not a savior. But they also know reform is hopeless. They’ll 'run a mile' from reformers and wallop anyone who tries 'ramming ideas down their necks.'
The "Remnant" who receive Christ and remain faithful to God will rejoice and many people from all nations will be saved despite the traumatic hell on earth.
So the seductions of socialism or any form of collectivism have no appeal to them. The masses of men may be swept along by great collectivist movements - socialism, communism, environmentalism. But not the "Remnant".
And only the "Remnant" can be counted on to clear the destruction these movements wreak, and start society anew with an accurate compass.
But in case you think I refer to some sort of libertarian Superman, I’m not. The "Remnant" come from all walks of life. They needn’t be wealthy or powerful.
They may be small business owners, teachers, tradesmen, soldiers. A member of the "Remnant" could be your friend or neighbor. They’re the quiet leaders of society.
There are millions of them in this country right now, going about their business unknown to one another.
On a Saturday evening, I was watching a film with harsh organ music on the TV when I screamed, "Nooo! Do not enter that church, you stupid man!"
My wife came running from the kitchen and asked, "What are you watching?"
I replied, "Video of our marriage!"
Men are selfless beings. Here's proof!
Most Women would not not like to help unknown Men...

Walmart refused to create Confederate flag cake... but they had no problem creating an Islamic State (ISIS) flag cake
Given the many national chains that stopped selling confederate flags after the Charleston, South Carolina, church massacre...
Chuck Netzhammer couldn’t have been too surprised that Walmart denied his request to create a cake bearing the image of the confederate flag.
But a day later, Netzhammer decided to put the store’s convictions to the test.
He said he submitted another cake request to the Walmart in Slidell, Louisiana, on Friday — this time with the Islamic State flag on top.
Surely a no-no for Walmart, yes?
To Netzhammer’s shock, Walmart put together the cake with the Islamic State flag.
And then he turned to YouTube to vent his frustration. “Alright, Walmart, you’ve got some explaining to do,” Netzhammer said on camera.
He added in his YouTube summary that the Islamic State “is beheading Christians, selling little girls into slavery and is currently a terrorist group at war with the United States -
But you can’t buy the General Lee toy car…? It’s a damn shame.”
Netzhammer showed the Islamic State flag cake on camera, as well as the rejection notice he said he received from Walmart for the confederate flag cake.
Walmart spokesman Randy Hargrove told the Daily Caller that the “store made a mistake. The cake in the video should not have been made and we apologize.”
“We made the decision to stop selling confederate flag related items promoting the flag’s image. For that reason we did not make the cake,” Hargrove added to the Daily Caller.
“Netzhammer brought in the other image of ISIS and really, what happened, was our associate didn’t recognize what that image was and what it meant or it wouldn’t have been made.”
Good for this guy… He get’s my pat on the back. That’s exactly what am talking about. Shove the insanity of the progressive turd world right in their faces…
Not a smidgen of common sense when you’re dealing with Democrats.
Whoopi Goldberg and "The View" attack well known pastor... but their accusations were completely false
This is what liberals do all the time - lie about everything. Then when they get caught, the blame someone else and pretend to apologize.
But their slimy goal is already achieved. They have planted false stories and impressions into the viewers subconscious mind. Chances are, those same people will never hear the apology.
During Monday’s episode of the ABC daytime talk show “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg and the crew were fooled by a fake news website...
That claimed pastor John Hagee of San Antonio’s Cornerstone Church wanted women prosecuted if they said “God” during sex.
There’s only one small problem with the story as reported by Whoopi and company - Pastor Hagee never said what they claimed he said.
Watch the women of the View tee off on Pastor Hagee: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzJUTazgnU8
Additionally, Newslo, the website on which the story first appeared, openly admits to being a place where facts and fiction are frequently intermingled.
From the “about” section of the site:
“Newslo is the first hybrid News/Satire platform on the web. Readers come to us for a unique brand of entertainment and information that is enhanced by features like our fact-button, which allows readers to find what is fact and what is satire.”
The portion highlighted in yellow shows actual facts about a story Newslo titled, “John Hagee Calls For Prosecuting Women Who Say God’s Name During Intercourse.”
Hagee’s spokesperson, Ari Morgenstern, told Accuracy In Media, the story was “defamatory” and was demanding a “full retraction” from the site that originated the post.
Additionally, several news outlets around the world, including England’s Daily Mail and The Mirror picked up the story. Many have since pulled their original posts or offered clarifications.
Syndicated radio host Joe Pags also noticed the obvious error and called out the show on his radio program.
Tuesday’s edition of The View opened with a (phony) apology from the show. “We have to start by clearing something up, ya know,” said Goldberg.
“Yesterday, we said there’s a pastor who said that women who yell, ‘Oh God!’ during sex should be jailed. It turns out that is was a fake story from a humor website.” Adding, “So we (kind of) apologize to the pastor. We’re (sort of) sorry.”
After a few chuckles from the audience, Goldberg turned and addressed the people sitting in the studio, “You know, periodically we have to do this because people get upset - (that we are liars).
If it didn’t happen and we said it did, it’s kinda rotten (but you know, we liberals do it all the time).”
I thought Democrats and gays... yelled out 0bama's name during sex.
How to stop her crying... brilliant!
What to do when a child starts crying... distract her with something else.

Thought for the day...
Nature's most powerful age fighter
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and one of the most powerful anti-aging nutrients I know of.
In ancient times, we used to get thousands and thousands of milligrams of vitamin C from our environment. Every day.
Vitamin C was so abundant, we lost the ability to make vitamin C in our own bodies.
Humans are just one of a few species that don't make their own vitamin C. We still have the gene, but the forces of evolution turned it off.
And that's bad news considering how little vitamin C we get from our food these days.
Researchers estimate – and I agree – that if our bodies still made vitamin C, we would produce somewhere between 3,000 mg. to 5,000 mg. a day.
Today, we're lucky if we get 200 mg. to 300 mg.
And that's what many of these doctors don't get. Even the ones that practice alternative, integrative, or anti-aging medicine.
You desperately need more vitamin C.
You need more for basic survival. You need more for anti-aging. And you REALLY need more if you're fighting disease.
Take a look at these studies.
In one, researchers used vitamin C to slow the age-dependent shortening of telomeres in vascular cells. The telomeres in cells treated by vitamin C were up to 62% longer than the telomeres in untreated cells.
In another study, vitamin C stimulated telomerase activity in the formation and regeneration of stem cells.
And a Harvard study demonstrated how vitamin C's effects on telomeres can translate to real life.
Researchers followed more than 85,000 nurses for 16 years. They found that women who took daily 360 mg. vitamin C supplements lowered their risk of heart disease by 27%.
In another study, researchers followed 20,000 men and women for 10 years. And the people with the highest levels of vitamin C had a 42% less chance of suffering a stroke than those with the lowest levels of vitamin C.
So here's what I tell my patients…
You should ignore the RDA for vitamin C. It's only 60 mg., and that's only enough to keep you from developing scurvy and dying.
To get the full benefits of vitamin C, you need at least 3,000 mg. a day. And to help reverse aging, I would take 5,000 mg. to 8,000 mg. If you're fighting cancer, you're looking at 15,000 mg. to 20,000 mg.
You can't depend on your diet to provide enough vitamin C.
Every year, shortsighted farming practices leave fruits and vegetables with fewer nutrients, including vitamin C. And these fruits and vegetables lose even more nutrients when they're processed.
You need a vitamin C supplement. So take from 3,000 mg. to 5,000 mg. a day, but divide them into smaller doses from breakfast to bedtime.
The best natural sources of vitamin C are acerola cherries, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, parsley, bell peppers, black currants, guava, and papaya.
You can also take vitamin C intravenously, a treatment we offer patients. It floods your body with anti-aging telomere support, and it's entirely natural.
Intravenous vitamin C is one of the most effective cancer treatments available, and it has remarkable healing and recuperative powers as well.
More of the Dark Web...
We promised to show you six more things a Deep Web user can obtain in darkness…
I must warn you, though, the previous list was very mild compared to what you’re about to discover.
Unless you’re a sociopath, at least a couple of these are going to make you sick to your stomach.
Before we continue, I want to make something clear: Most people, I believe, are good. But the people who do what I’m about to show you - they are not most people.
With that said, I feel obligated to post the same disclaimer I wrote in the previous episode.
[DISCLAIMER: The following is for informational purposes only. We’ve never been to the Dark Net, and are not responsible if you go to the Dark websites listed below and get yourself in trouble.]
ONE: WEAPONS, AMMUNITIONS AND EXPLOSIVES
Any weapon you want, you can probably find it on the Deep Web.
Sites such as The Armory, Black Market Reloaded, and LiberaTor sell everything from handguns to assault rifles to C-4 to military-grade weaponry like MANPADS (pictured above).
And they ship worldwide - no waiting period, no background checks.
“Of course,” says Goodman, “shipping is a bit of a problem: one can’t just FedEx an Uzi without raising some alarm bells.
Thus gun purveyors on the Dark Net have adapted well to this challenge and send their products via shielded packaging, disguised to look like other products.
The firearms are broken down into smaller components and forwarded via special shipments.
“Weapons merchants can even arrange for “dead drops” where they hide the fully assembled firearms buried in a park, in a rubbish bin, or in an alley.
After payment, buyers receive GPS coordinates and descriptions of where the items are hidden.”
TWO: HIT MEN
On websites like Killer For Hire, Quick Kill, Contract Killer, and C’thulhu, you can get, as a couple of them advertise, “permanent solutions to common problems.”
“The mercenaries offering these services,” Goodman says, “proudly note their training with militaries such as the French Foreign Legion or their sniper capabilities honed in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Each service has different rules and regulations. One has a strict “no minors policy” and refuses to murder children under eighteen, while another demurs when it comes to political assassinations.
“No worries, though, there are just as many services that are dedicated to killing government officials, such as the crowdsourced Assassination Market…
Prices range from a low of $20,000 to more than $100,000 to kill a police officer.
The sites request you provide a recent photograph of the target, as well as home and work addresses, daily routines, and frequent hangouts.
Bitcoin gladly accepted, and photographic proof of murder is included standard.”
THREE: CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE IMAGES
The Deep Web is swimming in sick pedophiliacs. Sites like Hard Candy, Jailbait, Lolita City, PedoEmpire, and Love Zone offers… well you know.
Another site, called The Family Album, says in plain view it offers “exclusive private child sex material by the members.” It’s basically a YouTube of child sexual abuse.
E-books are also for sale with titles like Producing Kiddie Porn for Dummies and How to Practice Child Love.
“The volume of these activities is startling,” Goodman says. “Just one Dark Web site alone has more than twenty-seven thousand registered pedophile members in its forums.
Moreover, the National Guard for Missing and Exploited Children examines nearly twenty million child sexual abuse images annually, a 4,000% increase since 2007.
“Law enforcement sources report that 19 percent of pedophiles have sexual abuse images of children younger than three years old, 39 percent younger than six years old, and 83 percent younger than twelve years old.
Across the Dark Web, experienced pedophiles teach one another how to evade law enforcement authorities and discuss encryption and anonymity techniques to avoid detection online.”
FOUR: HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Human trafficking also occurs on the Deep Web. Yep. It’s the modern-day slave trade. It never went away. It only shifted hands and went underground.
The U.S. Department of Justice estimates human trafficking to be a $32 billion a year business for Crime, Inc.
“In the United States alone,” says Goodman, “nearly 200,000 children are trafficked for sex, and a pimp can generate $150,000 to $200,000 a year per child.
Nearly 70 percent of the survivors of child trafficking said they were advertised online at some point during their trafficking situation and forced to have sex up to twenty times a day.”
FIVE: HUMAN ORGAN TRAFFICKING
This is a big one too.
“Around the world, there is a vibrant and gruesome black market for body parts.
Kidneys can fetch up to $200,000, hearts $120,000, livers $150,000, skin a mere $10 per square inch, a shoulder $500, and a pair of eyeballs $1,500.
“Where do these bits of humanity come from? Both the living and the dead.
Grave robbing is alive and well in the twenty-first century, and many mortuaries around the world are selling parts of those entrusted to their care, correctly assuming the family will never know.
Worse, the living poor are at particular risk, actively targeted online and off to sell their organs to wealthy patients in desperate need.
“In the United States alone, there are more than 100,00 people on the list to receive kidneys, which works out to a ten-year-wait. Most will die in half that time.
As a result, wealthy patients head overseas in search of “donors,” driving a flourishing illicit trade in human organs.”
“The organs may come from executed prisoners in China, from women in India, forced by their husbands to sell body parts in order to contribute to the family’s income, or from newly arrived Syrian refugees sheltering in Lebanon desperate for cash.”
And while a kidney goes for $200,000, the average donor makes between $2,500-$10,000. And they receive no post-op care, many dying on the operation table.
One example, which hit the mainstream, is the 18-year-old Wang Shangkun who sold his kidney for an iPad and a an iPhone.
SIX: LIVE CHILD RAPE
OK. This is where it gets really stomach-churning. I debated on whether or not to include this section… but decided that you need to know what’s happening. Despite how it might make you feel.
I’ll let Goodman take this one in full:
“Like Dante’s Inferno, the Dark Web has its own ninth circle of hell, and here is where you will find the most abominable acts of violence against the youngest and most vulnerable members of our society.
“In a deeply disturbing report issued by Europol - the European Union’s police agency -
Law enforcement officials noted the growing number of underground Web sites now providing live-streaming videos of the abuse and rape of children.
“Crime, Inc. and pedophile networks are actually organizing pay-per-view child rape on demand.
Organized criminal networks in Asia in particular provide pedophiles with the ability to connect live via Tor to video feeds with built-in messaging functions...
Where users around the world can direct the rapists who have abducted the children to carry out specific acts of abuse.
“Yes, nauseatingly, they do take requests. In one incident investigated by police, those connecting via Tor could order a group of men to rape an eight-year-old girl, directing their actions in real time, all for about $100.
Because these activities take place on the Dark Web and because the video images are streamed instead of downloaded...
Evidence to prove the crimes is not recorded anywhere, save for in the permanent and traumatic memories of the victims who survive the depraved brutality of their fellow man.”
“All of these illicit goods and services offered for sale in the digital underground,” Goodman goes on, “drive tremendous profits to Crime, Inc. -
A trend that is accelerating thanks to new forms of illicit finance that greatly facilitate its clandestine business operations.”
And the government is far too slow to keep up with these criminals.
But there are hackers out there with a good sense of moral direction that know how these things work - plenty of them.
In fact, I’d say the majority of hackers who understand how the Deep Web works wholeheartedly agree with the non-aggression principle. And want no part in any of the stuff you see above.
The government actively tries to recruit these guys and gals. But, for good reason, they distrust and actively dislike the government.
So they, 9.99 times out of ten, decline. Unless, of course, they’re being extorted. (Which happens.)
And then, the feds force them to rat out fellow hackers, most of which are not committing the heinous stuff you just saw above.
Forget about the drugs and petty stuff being sold on the Dark Net. That should be the least of our worries.
As I’ve said in these digital pages in the past, I’m not against an online drug trade - regardless of the drug.
In fact, by digitizing the drug trade, it takes it off the streets - which, of course, makes you and me safer.
Let them be.
The other operations, such as those who profit from child sexual abuse and human trafficking and murder… target them.
But governments around the world are powerless when it comes to dealing with them. It’s way over their heads. And they know it.
That’s why, Big Government, I say, should allow the free market to deal with these sickos.
Private “White Hat” organizations should be allowed to freely organize, and with the promise of no state intervention, go after the organizations that commit such atrocities. And then drain them dry.
The incentive? The money they make from these operations will be theirs to keep, provided they don’t use it to funnel back into the hands of those who choose to make their living through rape, murder, terror and torture.
It’s an idea. Maybe it’s harebrained. But I think it’s much better than what’s occurring now.
But, alas, they won’t do it - to every victim’s peril. The government would never allow such a thing.
First, it would take admitting that they are impotent to stop these operations.
They’d rather take ineffective actions and create spectacles out of them - as if they’ve accomplished something.
Like shutting down websites, or “making examples” out of small fish like the Silk Road’s Ross Ulbricht, to make it seem like they are making a dent.
But they aren’t. Not even close
The Dark Net is a hydra. It’s anti-fragile. When the feds cut off one head, three grow in its place.
And until we get strength in numbers - by individuals that know how these systems work - these atrocities will continue.
Until then, the government will continue to throw press parades for each tiny bluegill they hook by luck.
And pedophiles will continue to be able to direct child abuse in real-time for $100 a show.
Because that’s the world we live in.
This Week's Government Goofs & Goofballs
An Independent & unbiased accounting of our government & political mischief
While the gullible citizens were focused on the Confederate flag liberal media propaganda...
Obama got the corrupt UN-American TPP trade agreement forced through
Whenever you see U.S. citizens losing their minds over something as silly as a flag, I've learned to look at what's being passed by Congress at the same time.
Statist flag worshipers were in a frenzy about a piece of colored cloth called the Confederate flag...
Because a man with that flag on his bumper had killed nine people in a church in Charleston, South Carolina last week.
Apple removed any Civil War apps from their app store. Walmart and many other retailers removed the flag from their inventory.
And heavily confused Americans who don't even know that the Civil War was actually an attempted fascist takeover of the country by racists, took to the streets demanding their overseers use violent force to remove the flag from any location that flies it.
Forgetting for the moment that this has every trapping of being a false flag event. What hardly anyone noticed was that yesterday the Senate voted to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
That's typical. Create a mainstream media controversy - in order to distract attention from serious, even traitorous, actions taking place in Congress.
The TPP has been the most secretive document passed in US history.
It was so secret that if Senators wanted to read the phone book size "free" trade deal they had to enter into a highly secure and guarded room behind the doors above...
And be watched as they read it and promise to never mention what they read.
Is this how a republic is supposed to conduct business?
The TPP is one of the most heinous documents ever passed in the U.S. - perhaps only second to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
Were you aware that the NDAA was recently passed in Congress again? Probably not.
The Charleston shooting occurred on the evening of June 17th, while the nation's media covered it like it was 9/11. The NDAA was passed on June 18th.
It looks like they got through two massively anti-freedom bills for one false flag this time. They're getting really good at this!
I suppose practice makes perfect.
For seven years, America has been subjected to the warped world of Obama and liberalism...
Where God, honor, morals and ethics - have been replaced with greed, corruption and ruthless destruction
Rush Limbaugh outlines seven words and phrases he says have been totally redefined in "the age of Obama."
Following the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh argued many words and phrases have been “totally redefined” in the “age of Obama.”
Among them, according to Limbaugh, are “marriage,” “taxes,” “gross domestic product,” “employed,” “recession,” “full-time job” and “recovery.”
“‘Marriage,’ totally redefined... ’Taxes’ are now ‘shared responsibility payments,’” Limbaugh said. “‘Gross domestic product’ has been redefined under Obama to include ‘thoughts.’
There’s even a move on to eliminate... a statistic reporting gross domestic product?" Then we couldn't gauge the health of the economy?”
The radio host argued that a “full-time job” has been “redefined to 30 hours a week” and “employed” has taken on an entirely new meaning, due to how the government is calculating unemployment numbers.
Limbaugh continued: “’Recession’ is no longer two successive negative quarters of GDP, because we can’t have a recession reported under Obama. There isn’t to be any bad economic news. So we redefine ‘recession’ by not even reporting it.
‘Recovery,’ economic recovery has been redefined. There hasn’t been an economic recovery since Obama took office. We have been stagnating. We have been in an economic malaise. We’ve been in the second term of Jimmy Carter.”
Additionally, there are now a “host of words and phrases” that have become “racist,” “sexist,” “bigoted,” or “homophobic.”
Here's few more Obama oxymorons:
UN-Affordable Healthcare Act, transparent, allies, work-place violence, success (mockingly you didn't build that), Islamic terrorists, lie (mis-spoke)...
Qualifications, education, religion, honor and distinction (Bergdahl trade)fundamental transformation, leading from behind, corpsman, hope and change (equals stagnation),
“Woe to the sinful nation, a people whose guilt is great, a brood of evildoers, children given to corruption! They have forsaken the Lord; they have spurned the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on him.” Isaiah 1:4
The meaning of “Obama sucks” will never change because... Obama sucks.
When the Age of Obama ends, then the healing can finally start.
