South Carolina Tea Party Convention Shows Growing Power of Movement

South Carolina Tea Party Convention Shows Growing Power of Movement The 2015 South Carolina Tea Party Convention was a phenomenal success on many fronts and caught the mainstream media totally off balance.

There were panels on National Security, Electro Magnetic Pulse dangers, Free Market replacement plans… View Article

Obama calls for civility, then immediately taunts Republicans

Obama calls for civility, then immediately taunts Republicans Most divisive president in history Obama calls for civility, then immediately taunts Republicans President Obama spent much of Tuesday’s State of the Union calling for civility in politics — then taunted Republicans over his two election victories, after many of them applauded the looming end of his political career. Mr. Obama issued a broad call for “a better politics” that began with common principles, and said his agenda isn’t political, pointing out “I have no more campaigns to run.” That drew rousing applause from the GOP side of the aisle, which had… View Article

Fact-Checking Obama’s State Of The Union Speech

Fact-Checking Obama’s State Of The Union Speech We already did our post-mortem of last night’s teleprompted annual evangelizing of Barack Obama’s “straight to folks” propaganda that would make both Goebbels and Dzerzhinsky blush. So instead of repeating ourselves, here is AP with its own fact check of what can only be dubbed lie after lie, courtesy of the president of the “free world” and the head of the “most transparent administration ever.” * * * AP looks at some of Obama’s claims, and the facts and the political climate behind them: OBAMA: “At this moment – with a growing economy,… View Article

Truth, War Propaganda, CIA and Media Manipulation

Truth, War Propaganda, CIA and Media Manipulation Never before has it been so important to have independent, honest voices and sources of information. We are – as a society – inundated and overwhelmed with a flood of information from a wide array of sources, but these sources of information, by and large, serve the powerful interests and individuals that own them. The main sources of information, for both public and official consumption, include the mainstream media, alternative media, academia and think tanks. The mainstream media is the most obvious in its inherent bias and manipulation. The mainstream media is owned… View Article

Fast Track Not A Done Deal, The People Will Stop It

Fast Track Not A Done Deal, The People Will Stop It There is bi-partisan opposition in Congress to Fast Track and a large movement of movements mobilized to stop it.
