Russian Forces to Provide “Security” At US Events

                        As part of a deal signed last week in Washington DC between the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and FEMA, Russian officials will provide “security at mass events” in the United States, a scenario that won’t sit well with Americans wary of foreign assets operating on US soil. According to a press release by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense and Emergencies, US and Russian officials met on June 25 at the 17th Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations. In addition to agreeing with FEMA… View Article

Health Insurance Rates May Double, Triple for Healthy Americans

According to a new Wall Street Journal analysis, healthy Americans may see their health insurance rates double or triple upon Obamacare’s January 2014 grand opening. Insurance premiums for sicker Americans will become less expensive as healthier Americans are forced to buy coverage or additional coverage to what they currently have or face government fines and penalties. The Journal examined figures from eight states to demonstrate the cost increases for healthier Americans. Virginia is one of the eight states examined by the Journal and offers a fairly typical picture. In Richmond, a 40-year-old male nonsmoker logging on to the eHealthInsurance comparison-shopping… View Article

Magpul Donates Magpul Donates ‘High Capacity’ Mags for Recall of Pro-Gun Control Dems

Magpul Industries donated 20,000 “high capacity” magazines to a June 29 gun rights rally in Glendale, CO, for the purpose of raising money for the recall of state Sens.

Electric Cars No Greener than Gasoline Vehicles

                      Electric cars, despite their supposed green credentials, are among the environmentally dirtiest transportation options, a U.S. researcher suggests. Writing in the journal IEEE Spectrum, researcher Ozzie Zehner says electric cars lead to hidden environmental and health damages and are likely more harmful than gasoline cars and other transportation options. Electric cars merely shift negative impacts from one place to another, he wrote, and “most electric-car assessments analyze only the charging of the car. This is an important factor indeed. But a more rigorous analysis would consider the environmental impacts… View Article

Happy Dominion Day Canada

On June 20, 1868, Governor General the Viscount Monck issued a royal proclamation asking for Canadians to celebrate the anniversary of the confederation.[1] However, the holiday was not established statutorily until 1879, when it was designated as Dominion Day, in reference to the designation of the country as a Dominion in the British North America Act. The holiday was initially not dominant in the national calendar; up to the early 20th century, Canadians thought themselves to be primarily British, being thus less interested in celebrating distinctly Canadian forms of patriotism. No official celebrations were therefore held until 1917—the golden anniversary… View Article

U.S. Park Police Lost Thousands of Guns; Will the Media Report?

                  Ever since the Newtown mass shooting, the liberal media have pushed for a  fresh round of federal gun control, insisting that such measures are needed to  keep guns from falling into the wrong hands, even though the efficacy of such  measures is doubtful. But what about guns potentially falling into the wrong  hands thanks to the malfeasance or incompetence of government officials?  Shouldn’t the media highlight those instances and call the government to account  for them? Well, the Washington Post reported in Friday’s newspaper that the “U.S. Park Police has lost… View Article

Mall maul nothing much, authorities report

(Editor’s note: Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse. WND features these reports to counterbalance the virtual blackout by the rest of the media due to their concerns that reporting such incidents would be inflammatory or even racist. WND considers it racist not to report racial abuse solely because of the skin color of the perpetrators or victims.) Videos linked or embedded may contain foul language and violence. The black mob violence at Fort Lauderdale over the Memorial Day weekend was nothing… View Article

Is the NSA actually Blackmail Inc.

            (NaturalNews) Every director of the NSA is a general or an admiral. The  NSA is organized under the US Dept. of Defense.

You want endless armed  conflict. That’s how you make your money. That’s how you… View Article
