global gun grab – near miss

In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The Statement of Purpose from the Bill reads: “To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.” The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo. Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing […]

going for the gold

John Embry is the Chief Investment Strategist of Sprott Asset Management, a position he’s held for nearly a decade. Having studied precious metals for over thirty years, John knows all there is to know about gold. He’s invested in precious metals through both crushing bear markets and raging bulls, giving him unique insight into where gold may be going next. In short, John Embry’s opinions on gold are worth paying attention to… and he has some very strong opinions about where gold prices are going in the next twelve months. Quote I am really fascinated with the gold and silver markets for a simple reason: I believe that the fundamentals that should be driving the price couldn’t be better. […]

New Mexico Gun Control

New Mexico this time, California, DC, etc… they will not quit until all non-violent, non-criminal potential defenders of life, liberty and property are defenseless. – Ted Anti-gun state Representative Miguel Garcia (D-Bernalillo) has introduced House Bill 44, legislation which criminalizes non-dealer firearm transfers at gun shows and takes the first step toward a universal ban on private gun sales, for the upcoming thirty-day legislative session that begins on January 21st. This bill mirrors the version of House Bill 77 that was being debated on the floor of the state Senate when the 2013 legislative session was gaveled for adjournment before a final vote on the measure. Although HB 44 contains language that would require improved reporting to the FBI […]

apple cider vinegar

The Many Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar But first, let’s talk about WHY you should be using apple cider vinegar. The benefits to raw apple cider vinegar are many. Apart from containing many beneficial vitamins and minerals, apple cider vinegar also contains acetic acid, potassium and malic acid. It can help regulate blood sugar, aid digestion, build muscle, clear skin, reduce bad cholesterol, prevent sickness with its antiviral properties, help remove toxins and aid in weight loss. It is also an alkalizing food, so it helps your body maintain good PH levels. When choosing apple cider vinegar, you should always get raw (unpasteurized) with the mother like this one to ensure you will get all the benefits from […]

The Americans With No Abilities Act

President Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate are considering sweeping legislation that will provide new benefits for many more Americans. The Americans With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills or ambition. “Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society,” said California Sen. Barbara Boxer. “We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and passed over. With this legislation, employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small group of workers, simply because they have some idea of […]

good news

This Is What the People in Your State Want (According to Google Autocomplete) Have you ever started typing a query into Google and had it “autocomplete” your search for you? If you’re like the millions of people who use Google every day, you know exactly what we’re talking about. Now, while Google often generates accurate “autocompletes,” it also generates some really bizarre and hilarious results. So the folks at Mashable decided to put Google’s autocomplete function to the test to see what people in each of the 50 states want. “The resulting map reads like a list of New Year’s resolutions made by Civil War veterans,” Mashable noted. “Did you know, for example, that more than anything, Wyoming evidently wants […]


Typical responses to this map are: “Oh my gosh, the jet ski season is going to be short this year!” “Crap! There goes the fishing season.” “Gee, I gotta get my boating in early.” One of the reasons the Darby Dog Derby sled dog races last weekend drew so many teams from all over the Northwest was lack of snow at all the other races in the region. Lack of snow = lack of moisture = shortage of spring runoff = no good news. But where does my head go first thing when I consider a short precipitation year? – FOOD and FOOD PRICES – If you think the watering down of our currency by the Fed has hit […]

am I obsolete?

Over on her blog, Claire Wolfe asked Do you sometimes feel obsolete? It inspired an extensive answer … I’ll share here. You might want to go read her post to better understand my response: Do you sometimes feel obsolete? — I designed my home of 20 years with wood heat as the only, but thoroughly adequate, choice. I’ll get wood heat as a backup/supplement in the cabin this year. However I love the programmable thermostat I put in before our first winter. It comes on at 0530 … inspiring me to stay in bed and possibly fall back to sleep when I undersleep, yet making noise and warming the house inviting me to get up at a reasonable hour. It […]

drug war winners

U.S. Government and Top Mexican Drug Cartel Exposed as Partners Written by Alex Newman alleged hit men working for Sinaloa drug cartel along with grenades, automatic weapons, and body armor For over a decade, under multiple administrations, the U.S. government had a secret agreement with the ruthless Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed it to operate with impunity, an in-depth investigation by a leading Mexican newspaper confirmed this week. In exchange for information and assistance in quashing competing criminal syndicates, the Bush and Obama administrations let the Sinaloa cartel import tons of drugs into the United States while wiping out Sinaloa competitors and ensuring that its leaders would not be prosecuted for their long list of major crimes. Other revelations […]

whack a mole

This is a picture of the paper fiat currency pushers keeping silver’s price down in spite of strong demand. Well over 90% of the silver traded on the market is actually paper promises of silver rather than the metal itself. Those who would have you fully dependent on their alternative to real money, that is Federal Reserve Notes or other fiat currencies, keep fighting to keep silver from demonstrating its power as an honest alternative. Every time a real transaction in physical silver forces the price up, the manipulators create a large paper-silver transaction to drag the price back down. The Comex (commercial exchange) where the price statistics are kept is thereby artificially low. This game of Whack A Mole […]

misplaced faith

They Don’t Mean Well by Sheldon Richman January 15, 2014 Americans have a strange need to believe that their “leaders” mean well. Nowhere is this more true than in foreign policy. Even when the horror of some government operation is revealed (usually after being kept from the American people), solemn pundits and elder statesmen will drone on about unintended consequences and the fog of war, while admonishing against “pointless” recriminations. Typically, the harshest accusation leveled against those responsible for a calamity is incompetence, and even that’s rare. Yet when one examines the U.S. government’s bloody record in foreign affairs, it is tough to come away thinking that the long trail of death, mayhem, and devastation is anything but the […]

license to kill

No one knows how many times police shoot and kill Americans every year. Most estimates put the number at a few hundred a year, but we don’t know the details, including how many of these killed people presented a real threat to anyone. The U.S. government does not do body counts, as it admitted during the Iraq war. And the same appears to be true in domestic policing, where law enforcement has become comparably brutal to the armed forces overseas, including in what has become standard operating procedure in the hundred SWAT raids performed every day across this country, the vast majority of which are launched to serve warrants to people accused of non-violent offenses.Three news stories in the first […]
