Wondering what Putin has been doing & what he might do soon. He drops a few hints, as thinly veiled threats, which are presented in the following:

The Demise of America
In the light of Obama’s disastrously weak and intentionally ineffective foreign policy hijinks, over 90 percent of our military do not support the President. Listen for yourself: Continue reading
Most people who have heard the term glasnost believe it to be something originating from Gorbachev. Leaders have followed the concept pre-dating modern history. The Term is an old Russian term meaning polishing ones image.

I have been absent from these pages for a while. My new book Disinformation, co-written with Professor Ronald Rychlak, and the documentary movie based on it have monopolized my time. But there is a nauseating glasnost-style operation now being conducted here in the United States that makes me feel as though I were watching a reenactment of the immense glasnost I used to manage during the years when I was an adviser to Romania’s communist president Nicolae Ceausescu.

If you said shares of BABA, you’d be wrong. According to the Telegraph, the exodus out of paper wealth and into hard assets is reaching a fever pitch as the “super-rich are looking to protect their wealth through buying record numbers of “Italian job” style gold bars, according to bullion experts.”
The numbers cited by the paper are impressive: the number of 12.5kg gold bars being bought by wealthy customers has increased 243% so far this year, when compared to the same period last year, said Rob Halliday-Stein founder of BullionByPost. “These gold bars are usually stored in the vaults of central banks and are the same ones you see in the film ‘The Italian Job’,” added David Cousins, bullion executive from London based ATS Bullion.

A significant benefit of the Affordable Care Act is the opportunity to receive money-saving tax credits up front to cut the overall cost of health insurance, but now hundreds of thousands of consumers could owe back some of that money next April.
Those affected took advance payments of the premium tax credit for health insurance. Some married couples could owe $600 or $1,500 or $2,500 or even more. It might feel like a raw deal for some who are already suffocating under the escalating costs of health insurance. Continue reading

Last year it was revealed that a handful of the activist agencies behind the petition to the EPA to regulate nano-silver as a pesticide received funding from pharmaceutical giant Merck, which annually has hundreds of billions of dollars in profits from patented antibioics which many believe are less effective, less safe and far more expensive than colloidal nano-silver products.
Further investigation by this reporter discovered that the initial revelations were just the tip of the iceberg when it came Merck and other pharmaceutical companies’ funding of the groups who supported the EPA’s regulation of nano-silver.
Remember Jim Bakker?
The televangelist who served five years in a federal prison on fraud and conspiracy charges in the early 1990s is now selling End of the World Biscuits, Time of Trouble Beans and other survival gear for the end of days, The New York Daily News reports.
Bakker hawks his wares on his self-titled The Jim Bakker Show, where instead of purchasing items, viewers can buy “Love Gifts” –as they’re called –by making “donations” at extremely marked-up prices. Continue reading

As the late great French scientist Antoine Bechamp told us well over a century ago, toxins are the root of almost all disease – especially so when toxins are combined with unhealthy cellular terrain. Likewise, it is also true that good health (or ill health) begins in the gut. Would you like to eliminate toxins, nourish your body and establish a healthy gut? You can – all it takes is the right plan and a bit of effort and time. Continue reading

Every year more than 14 million healthy Americans follow the dictate of the medical establish to have a colonoscopy. Of this number, an estimated 70,000 are killed or seriously injured by colonoscopy related complications, according to statistics published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. But here is the real shocker – that 70,000 is a larger number (by 22%) than the total number of people who die from colon cancer in the first place!
Other interesting facts about colonoscopy include: Continue reading

Do you remember when the NFL actually used to be about football? The NFL has become a reflection of society at large, and it has been disgusting to watch the transformation take place. And I am not talking about the reprehensible behavior of players such as Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy. The things that each of those men are accused of doing are absolutely horrible, and each one of them should have the opportunity to be held accountable for their actions in a court of law. But what I am talking about is how the NFL has become a circus of political correctness. These days, there is very little talk about what is actually happening on the field. Rather, there is endless debate about the latest scandals and about what the proper politically-sensitive response to those scandals should be. And of course the media just loves to add fuel to the fire. If they can get a coach or a player to say something that is just slightly politically inappropriate that will give them the latest “breaking news” to write about. Continue reading

Ongoing research is being performed to investigate the cause of Alzheimer’s disease. A form of dementia, Alzheimer’s robs its victims slowly of their cognitive powers, intelligence, memories and eventually, their lives. Scientists don’t know for sure how Alzheimer’s develops; however, emerging evidence points to genetics, lifestyle factors and environmental toxins. Early onset Alzheimer’s disease is often thought to be influenced by genetics, giving the individual little control over causative factors. However, in the case of the more common form of Alzheimer’s disease, it may be possible for individuals to have some control over its prevention. Continue reading

An Oklahoma County judge ruled Friday that a Ten Commandments monument on the state Capitol grounds is constitutional.
Attorneys for the group that sued to have the monument removed said they will appeal that decision.
District Judge Thomas Prince ruled the monument’s placement is constitutional and that it can remain in place during the appeals process. Prince on Friday granted the Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission’s request for summary judgment, halting the lawsuit from advancing to trial. Continue reading
A provocative ad campaign featuring anti-Islamic messages is to run on one hundred New York City buses and two subway stations beginning next week. Costing $100,000, it equates Hamas with Islamic State militants for ‘education purposes.’
The campaign is based on a provocative premise: “Hamas is ISIS”, “Hamas is CAIR in America,” “Islamic Jew Hatred: It’s in the Quran.” Continue reading
New intelligence has emerged warning Washington that its upcoming confrontation with the Islamic State may leave it blind to a more sinister and direct threat from a much lesser known terrorist group that has arisen from the ashes of the Syrian war.
Very little information is being released at the moment by anyone within American intelligence circles, but the group calling itself Khorasan is said by officials to have concrete plans for striking targets in the United States and Europe as a chosen modus operandi – more so than the Islamic State (IS), formerly known as ISIS.

KUCUK KENDIRCILER, Turkey (AP) — The number of refugees seeking shelter in Turkey from the Islamic State group’s advance across northern Syria has hit 100,000 in less than a week, an official said Sunday.
The head of Turkey’s disaster management agency, Fuat Oktay, said the figure relates to Syrians escaping the area near the Syrian border town of Kobani, where fighting has raged between IS and Kurdish fighters since Thursday. Continue reading
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Secret Service tightened security outside the White House after an embarrassing breach in which a man with a knife scaled a fence, ran across the lawn and made it all the way inside before agents stopped him.
Increased surveillance and more officer patrols are among the measures that Secret Service Director Julia Pierson ordered. She also began an investigation into what went wrong Friday evening while the first family was away from the White House. Continue reading
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Ending months of vote-related tension, Afghanistan’s election commission named a new president on Sunday only hours after the two leading candidates signed a power-sharing deal that names one of them as the country’s new chief executive.
The commission named Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai as the winner and next president and noted that Abdullah Abdullah will be the next chief executive. But it pointedly did not release final vote totals amid suggestions that doing so could inflame tensions. Continue reading
