The Chinese do not plan to live in a world dominated by the U.S. dollar for much longer. Chinese leaders have been calling for the U.S. dollar to be replaced as the primary global reserve currency for a long time, but up until now they have never been very specific about what they would put in place of it. Many have assumed that the Chinese simply wanted some new international currency to be created. But what if that is not what the Chinese had in mind? What if they have always wanted their own currency to become the single most dominant currency on the entire planet? What you are about to see is rather startling, but it shouldn’t be a surprise. When it comes to economics and finance, the Chinese have always been playing chess while the western world has been playing checkers. Sadly, we have gotten to the point where checkmate is on the horizon. Continue reading

The unrelenting parade of winter storms continued Wednesday as a swath of snow, sleet, ice and rain was set to fall from Texas to the Northeast, a distance of about 1,500 miles.
Close to 100 million people will be affected by the storm, according to AccuWeather meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.
Snow should be mainly light in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas but should fall heavily at times from the middle part of the Mississippi Valley to the Ohio Valley, central Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic. Continue reading

The petition up on WhiteHouse.gov against mandatory vaccinations — the one the White House tried to bury — has, at the time of writing this, reached well over the 100,000 signatures needed by March 6th in order to supposedly garner a response from our president’s administration.
The petition is short, sweet, and to the point:
No human being should be FORCED to be vaccinated against their will and/or personal/religious beliefs. I petition against making vaccinations of any kind mandatory. This includes forcing children to be vaccinated to attend public schools, activities, and daycare centers. This also includes adults working in the public or private sector. Continue reading

A week after the Federal Communications Commission passed a landmark vote enshrining protections for net neutrality and mobile broadband, Republicans and cable industry giants are reiterating their vows to fight the ruling—but new comments by FCC chief Tom Wheeler indicate that the commission is ready to take them on.
Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), who heads the House Communications and Technology Subcommittee, on Wednesday said during an industry summit hosted by the American Cable Association that the FCC’s new rules are “a total overreach,” calling them “illogical and illegal.” Continue reading

After about 25 Patriots engaged the Curry County Board of Commissioners, in a sometimes contentious discussion, the 2nd Amendment Preservation Resolution was passed 3-0 making Curry County the 19th of 36 counties to have passed similar motions.
Chair Susan Brown was obviously not in favor of the Resolution and irrationally argued that because she had sworn an oath to the WHOLE Constitution, she didn’t need to support any single Amendment. Huh ???? (Must be some kind of Naturalized Canadian/American Logic.) She had from the beginning of this effort kept insisting on knowing what legislation this was aimed at and would not accept that it was a preemptive Resolution intended to put the State Legislature on notice that the County would not support ANY current or future State efforts, restricting our rights, especially the 2nd Amendment via anti-firearms legislation.

TOKYO — The U.S. ambassador to South Korea, Mark Lippert, was attacked by an armed assailant while he was heading to give a lecture in central Seoul Thursday morning.
Television reports from Seoul showed Lippert, a former assistant secretary of defense and adviser to President Obama, bleeding from his head and hand at the Sejong cultural center, across the road from the American embassy. Police said he was attacked with a 25-cm-long fruit knife. According to reports, the attacker yelled, “No war! The two Koreas should be unified.” Continue reading

East London resident Martin Le-May captured this incredible photo of a baby weasel on the back of a green woodpecker in Essex, England, on Monday
As much as we’d all like to believe this is a wondrous tale of friendship wherein two mates go on an epic adventure featuring a baby weasel and his magnificent flying steed, sadly it’s NOT. It’s a photo of a weasel trying to kill a woodpecker. Continue reading

Chuck Schumer wants to do just that. It sounds oh so reasonable, right?

Pennsylvania’s asset-forfeiture laws, which turn property used in drug deals into funding for law enforcement, are designed to make Philadelphians safer and to make it harder for drug dealers to do their illegal work.
Drug dealers and the social rot that comes with their trade ruin neighborhoods – they bring addiction, illegal firearms, death, despair, and destruction. With our growing epidemic of prescription-drug and heroin overdoses, making it harder for dealers to operate by removing their profits and profit motive is a good thing. Continue reading

A Republican congressional source told CNN that the Israelis are asking lawmakers to approve more than $300 million in additional U.S. funding for missile defense systems, above the $155 million the Pentagon is already requesting from Congress. Continue reading
You Can’t Make This Up
Today, the MSM are not talking about this case any more. Yesterday, they wanted us to believe that Joseph Moshe was a nutcase and a terrorist, arrested for threatening to bomb the White House. Interesting detail about his arrest (the “Westwood standoff”) was that he seemed to be immune to the 5 cans of tear gas and 5 gallons of law-enforcement grade pepper spray they pumped into his face. He very calmly remained in his car, as the video footage of his arrest shows. Continue reading

Harrison Orr sued California, its Highway Patrol, and two CHP officers identified only by their last names – Brame and Plumb – alleging that his arrest violated state and federal law. Continue reading

“Corporate America is using police forces as their mercenaries.”—Ray Lewis, Retired Philadelphia Police Captain
It’s one thing to know and exercise your rights when a police officer pulls you over, but what rights do you have when a private cop—entrusted with all of the powers of a government cop but not held to the same legal standards—pulls you over and subjects you to a stop-and-frisk or, worse, causes you to “disappear” into a Gitmo-esque detention center not unlike the one employed by Chicago police at Homan Square?
