Called an “electromagnetic pulse” or EMP, the events can occur naturally from solar storms or artificially from a high-altitude explosion of nuclear weapons. Continue reading

Dr Michael Hudson once said that America and Europe both need to go beyond the politics of Left and Right to found an anti-Banker party to arrest the Bankers. That was his answer to Too Big To Jail Banks. Dr Hudson also wrote an article in 2009 predicting De-dollarization by the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) nations . This is what he wrote five years ago in June of 2009: Continue reading
RITTMAN, Ohio – Ashley Brown was eight months pregnant when she was arrested on drug charges last November for a case in which her only real crime may have been having a very common name.
Brown said she pulled into the driveway of her mother’s Rittman home and was closely followed by two cars from the Rittman Police Department. Continue reading

GOODRICH, TX (KHOU) – A deer hunter stumbled upon thousands of pot plants in what could end up being one of the biggest marijuana busts in Texas history.
The hunter was at his deer lease in Goodrich off Old Highway 35 Saturday when he saw the suspicious plants and alerted authorities.
Polk County deputies say they’ve already recovered 44,000 plants and they haven’t even started clearing out 16 additional fields spotted by air. Continue reading
A federal judge asked a jury on Monday to once again attempt to come to a verdict in the defamation case brought by former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura since the panel could not come to a decision after five days of deliberations.
Ventura is suing the estate of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle for disparaging him in Kyle’s book ‘American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History.’ Ventura says a passage of the book regarding a supposed fight between he and Kyle in 2006 has irreparably damaged his reputation.

In a raid seeking information related to Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, Chinese hackers infiltrated the databases of three Jewish defense contractors.
In addition to taking information on the Iron Dome, the attackers were also able to nab plans regarding other projects – including Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, ballistic rockets, and “detailed schematics and specifications” for the Arrow III missile interceptor. Continue reading
BEIJING (AP) — China’s ruling Communist Party announced an investigation into a feared ex-security chief on Tuesday, demonstrating President Xi Jinping’s firm grip on power and breaking a longstanding taboo against publicly targeting the country’s topmost leaders.
If he goes to trial, Zhou Yongkang would be the highest-level official to be prosecuted since the 1981 treason trial of Mao Zedong’s wife and other members of the “Gang of Four,” who mercilessly persecuted political opponents during the chaotic 1966-76 Cultural Revolution. Continue reading
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic and Republican members of Congress scrambled Tuesday to seal a $225 million boost to Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system before they break this week for a month-long recess.
As the Gaza war escalates, Israel is proving to be among the few subjects uniting lawmakers. Members of both parties have introduced legislation backing the Jewish state, condemning the Palestinian militant group Hamas and seeking a tougher Iran policy. Iron Dome is the priority, but the House and Senate are at odds over process. Continue reading
LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — In the whitest U.S. state, thousands of miles from the Mexican border, the debate over immigration is becoming a central issue in one of the nation’s most closely watched governor’s races.
With its close-knit communities and a practice of labeling non-natives as “from away,” Mainers have a reputation for being insular. But they have also embraced the need for immigrants as the state’s population ages and declines. Continue reading
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Israel on Tuesday unleashed its heaviest bombardment in a 3-week-old war against Hamas, striking symbols of the militant group’s control in Gaza and firing tank shells that Palestinian officials said shut down the strip’s only power plant.
Thick black smoke from the plant’s burning fuel tank rose for hours. The station’s shutdown further disrupted the supply of electricity and water to the 1.7 million people packed into the narrow Palestinian coastal territory. Continue reading
(Tim Brown) While some question whether or not Barack Obama is a Muslim, there can be no doubt of his Islamic sympathies concerning those that advise him, along with the support and family ties he has to the Muslim Brotherhood and his foundation’s ties to terrorist groups.
With that said, one should always keep in mind that there are Islamists who are much more devout to Islam that others. Notice, I said devout, not radical and not extreme. They are merely seeking to adhere to Islam more than others. These people will kill their own over the slightest deviation from the Quran. The new Islamic State is such a group and now they have warned Barack Hussein Obama that they are coming for him.

A revolutionary blood test that could detect any type of cancer has been developed by British scientists.
It is hoped the breakthrough will enable doctors to rule out cancer in patients presenting with certain symptoms – saving time and preventing costly and unnecessary invasive procedures and biopsies.
Early results have shown the simple test can diagnose cancer and pre-cancerous conditions from the blood of patients with melanoma, colon cancer and lung cancer with a high degree of accuracy. Continue reading

HOUSTON, Texas–The federal government is in dire need of U.S. citizens willing to house the thousands of illegal immigrants who enter the country each week, and they are willing to pay them to do so.
The Texas-based nonprofit Catholic Charities is currently seeking out foster families for the migrants, most of whom come from Central America. Ruth Braiser, a spokeswoman for the organization, told Breitbart Texas that foster families can receive monthly payments for housing adult immigrants who are under 23-years-old. Continue reading

When asked whether legalizing illegal immigrants would help unemployed Americans, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D.-Md.) responded by pointing to testimony from the director of the Congressional Budget Office that Van Hollen said indicated enactment of the Senate immigration bill (which gave illegal aliens a “path to citizenship’) would “reduce the deficit and increase long-term economic growth.”
CNSNews.com asked: “Do you think that allowing illegal aliens to stay in the United States and putting them on a path to citizenship will help unemployed Americans?” Continue reading

A squad of Hamas terrorists emerged from a tunnel inside Israel Monday evening and killed five soldiers, but failed to carry out an abduction.
The attack took place south of Kibbutz Nahal Oz in the vicinity of the Karmi Crossing with the Gaza Strip. Continue reading

GAZA CITY — Israel bombed the Gaza Strip’s only power plant Tuesday in a further sign that its military campaign against Hamas is showing few signs of slowing down as the conflict enters its fourth week.
In a separate development, a cease-fire proposed by a senior official from the Palestine Liberation Organization was later contradicted by Hamas. Continue reading

HOUSTON, Texas–Bell County, Texas, has spent almost $200,000 so far this year on detainers, or “immigration holds,” for illegal immigrants.
Detainer requests from federal immigration officials require local law enforcement to hold illegal immigrants, detained for local charges, past the length of their jail times. Typically, the holding time is 48 hours. During this time, federal agents decide whether or not to deport the individuals. Continue reading

Remember when our rulers told us that regimes like Saddam, Gaddafi, and Assad were the epitome of evil and must be liberated because they allegedly killed their own citizens? Probably not. Americans have short memories.
I only remind you to let you know that the U.S. and other Western governments have reversed their stance on regimes killing their own citizens. They now fully endorse and support this rule-with-an-iron-fist so long as the victims can be successfully labeled “separatists” or “terrorists”. Continue reading

Also known as “telepresence,” the use of holograms is on the rise. Instead of Princess Leia, the last 5 years have ushered in real-world holograms that have been used toresurrect dead musicians, to create new musical stars in Japan, and and to transport political analysts into the studio of their choice.
Yet there are many other uses for holograms that could have a far greater impact on our everyday world, as the following video chronology suggests.
In 2010, The Guardian announced that holographic communication had flickered into life in Arizona:
