It’s not 100 percent clear the extent to which Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia meant what it sounded like he meant, but tossing around the word “revolt” in the context of a discussion of the U.S. government is never a smart nor rational idea. And it’s especially a bad idea when it’s invoked during an era when armed revolt against the government is being taken very seriously.
During a speaking engagement last week at the University of Tennessee College of Law, Scalia discussed how it’s constitutionally permissible for Congress to impose taxes on citizens. Fair enough. However, Scalia added, “if it reaches a certain point, perhaps you should revolt.” Continue reading
Helping Misguided Voters – by Dianne Richardson
For decades US presidents of both parties have used the words, the ‘New World Order’ in speeches. (1A)(1B)(1C)(1D) This is the UN’s grand plan to herd all humans, except the elites, into high-rise urban zones of their designation and design, while leaving the vast land masses to nature. It’s formally known Agenda 21, aka Earth-friendly Communism. Except that nature would be managed so as to feed everyone in the way the New World Order decides. (2) This plan fits the desires of other elite groups that also want to control us, so the concept gets support from the likes of the Bilderberg Group through the Federal Reserve and we presume Wall Street’s Goldman Sachs, as well as the Trilateral Commission, a future world controlled by a supreme Muslim monarch with caliphates, and the future world of Communism soon to be lead by Barack Hussein Obama. (3) Because it’s too early to react, I suppose the plan by each group is to wait until it’s about done, then ‘fight it out’ to see who wins ultimate control. In the meantime, they are happy to take their share of whatever comes their way during the global conversion. Continue reading

At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list.
The secret list was part of an elaborate scheme designed by Veterans Affairs managers in Phoenix who were trying to hide that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to a recently retired top VA doctor and several high-level sources. Continue reading

With revelations that the National Security Agency has collected some20 trillion phone calls and emails via an expansive nationwide surveillance network, most Americans have already come to the realization that everything they do is being monitored.

Among the growing number of students and professors from China at American and Australian universities are spies working for the Chinese government.
In the United States, some Chinese scholars are not just sharing their expertise, but also gathering information for China’s Communist Party, according to Xia Yeliang, a former Peking University economics professor now working at the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C. Continue reading

After three years of legal wrangling, a Texas family has won its case against a company engaged in hydraulic fracturing near their home. The family, which suffered tangible health deterioration after the fracking began, was awarded $3 million.
A Dallas jury ruled Tuesday in favor of the Parr family, which sued Aruba Petroleum in 2011 after each member of the family noticed a decline in health that, their attorneys argued in court, was the result of dozens of gas wells surrounding their home in Wise County, Texas. Continue reading

Willie Myrick recounted the story at a recent gathering in his honor. He says as he sang, the man drove around and was cursing before eventually letting him go unharmed last month. WXIA-TV reports (http://on.11alive.com/1h9tLnb) that Grammy Award-winning gospel singer Hezekiah Walker, who performed the song, traveled to Atlanta to meet the boy. Continue reading
KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — When they moved from Georgia to the theme park playground of central Florida four years ago, Anthony and Candice Johnson found work at a barbecue restaurant and a 7-Eleven. Their combined salaries nevertheless fell short of what they needed to rent an apartment, so the couple and their two children have instead been hopping among cheap motel rooms along U.S. 192.
“What’s hard for us isn’t paying the bills,” Candice Johnson, 24, said. “It’s just trying to get our feet in the door” with the combined expense of application fees, security deposits and first month’s rent needed for a place of their own. Continue reading
PHOENIX (AP) — A Southern California woman who was held at a Phoenix airport four years ago after refusing to have her breast milk X-rayed said Wednesday she has reached a tentative settlement with the Transportation Security Administration.

LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota man who killed two teenagers who broke into his home can be heard on an audio recording talking to himself for hours after the shooting and at one point, apparently describing the slain teens as “vermin.”

World Events and the Bible
Globally, we are witnessing tensions rise rapidly. From China and Japan, to the situation in Ukraine which has pulled in the United States, Russia and NATO. Instead of a de-escalation of the events in Ukraine, we are witnessing an escalation of them.
A few days ago we posted an article titled, “NATO Moving Troops in Escalation of Ukrainian Crisis” where the Secretary General of NATO stated in order to de-escalate the events in Ukraine they will send in more troops, aircraft and navel assets.

The ACLU has jumped into a troubling legal fight, in which it appears that the DOJ has issued gag orders against Twitter and Yahoo concerning grand jury subpoenas that have been sent to both companies. This case is one we mentioned last week where magistrate judge John Facciolaasked the two companies to weigh in, as he appears unconvinced that the government’s request is sound. However, the whole thing is happening under seal, which the ACLU feels is inappropriate, given the importance of allowing companies to respond freely to such requests, without being gagged.
