Iceland To Take Back The Power To Create Money Who knew that the revolution would start with those radical Icelanders? It does, though. One Frosti Sigurjonsson, a lawmaker from the ruling Progress Party, issued a report today that suggests taking the power to create money away from commercial banks, and hand it to the central bank and, ultimately, Parliament. Can’t see commercial banks in the western world be too happy with this. They must be contemplating wiping the island nation off the map. If accepted in the Iceland parliament , the plan would change the game in a very radical… View Articleclick here for more
Democrats hate Christianity They resent it gives people ‘something other than government’ Rush Limbaugh answered a caller’s concern about the “anti-Christians that are taking over” by saying those in that particular activist camp are being fueled by Democrats who simply hate Christianity. First, the caller, a self-described U.S. Coast Guard veteran, speaking of the recent furor generated by Indiana’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act: “What am I supposed to do? These anti-Christians that are taking over, it seems like, don’t realize this country was founded on Christian values and morals. Have they lost their mind?” And then, Limbaugh’s response:...

Why the Western Media Will Never Show Putin’s Three Hour Press Conference Could President Obama speak in front of hundreds of journalists for over three hours, unscripted and without a teleprompter? Highly doubtful. How about Hillary? Can Mrs. Clinton take on the local and international press in an honest, nothing off limits, press Q & A….once again for over three hours and no teleprompter to assist. No chance. What about John McCain. Could Senator McCain field intelligent questions for over three hours (let alone 15 minutes) without resorting to name calling, warmongering or regime change rhetoric? Please! Cameron, Hollande, Merkel…no… View Articleclick here for more
Fournier Jumps Ship – Albertans to Pay for Medical Much has been said recently about the “anti-terrorism” Bill C-51 that is currently being debated in the House of Commons. I have been quite vocal about the fact that I oppose this Bill, but I haven’t gone into a lot of detail as to why. I think it is important for my fellow conservatives to understand that this is not a partisan issue. Just because it is mainly the NDP and the Green Party who have spoken out against it doesn’t mean that conservatives shouldn’t have grave concerns as well....

And now, the training is coming under fire from locals and… View Articleclick here for more
Stop Smoking the Democrack By Cindy Sheehan and David Swanson April 01, 2015 “ICH” – The U.S. government is toying with a war with nuclear Russia while already waging wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, having done severe damage to Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, and Somalia. Military spending is climbing ever higher. Presidential war powers are ever more extreme. The proliferation of nuclear technology is combining with the ease and secrecy of drone wars to raise the risk of a Dr. Strangelove finish to the human species. And, let’s face it, you had more time to give a damn when the president… View Articleclick here for more
John Bolton’s Love of Bombs The year was 1968. I had just earned a master’s degree in history at Georgetown University, where I had also helped found the university’s chapter of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Unfortunately, there was no time to celebrate, because within days of getting the degree I was on U.S. Army bus, along with about 30 others, heading from Washington, D.C. to Fort Holabird in Baltimore. At that time there was a military draft induction center there, and according to my low draft lottery number, my time had come. At Holabird we piled into… View Articleclick here for more
