"I never would have believed that I would see the events of today’s world racing towards Armageddon in the truest and Biblical sense of the term/place. However, where humanity is at is undeniable. Putin has been placed, by the bankers, in a position to win World War III and at the same time, America has been placed in a position of certain defeat by its own leadership. Eliminating America’s freedoms and its spirit of entrepreneurial independence must be extinguished before ushering in the final push for the full establishment of the New World Order can be completed. In the first part in this series, I detailed how Putin is preparing to defeat the United States in World War III. The Federal Reserve and the other Western central bankers may be the antagonist in world affairs in places like Ukraine, but this is a meaningless debate about who is right. This article will dispel the myth that there is such a thing as the moral high ground as the world moves towards World War III. What is coming is about power, not morality. And the only thing that you have control over is the final destination of your soul and that is where any moral debate should be centered. I strongly suggest that each individual make peace with God because this is where most of us are likely headed."

"In an era of email, text messages, Facebook and Twitter, we’re all required to do several things at once. But this constant multitasking is taking its toll. Here neuroscientist Daniel J Levitin explains how our addiction to technology is making us less efficient. Our brains are busier than ever before. We’re assaulted with facts, pseudo facts, jibber-jabber, and rumour, all posing as information. Trying to figure out what you need to know and what you can ignore is exhausting. At the same time, we are all doing more. Thirty years ago, travel agents made our airline and rail reservations, salespeople helped us find what we were looking for in shops, and professional typists or secretaries helped busy people with their correspondence. Now we do most of those things ourselves. We are doing the jobs of 10 different people while still trying to keep up with our lives, our children and parents, our friends, our careers, our hobbies, and our favourite TV shows."
"The underpinnings that fallaciously attempt to justify despotic regimes rely upon the perverted practice of controlling the public mindset in weak societies. The indisputable evidence that civilization is regressing at lightning speed is all us. Governments are becoming irrelevant with the passage of illegitimate authority consolidating into the hands of oligarchic cabals and global tyrants. An objective study of the voluntary abandonment of individual sovereignty is worthy of an entire scholarly discipline. However, before confused citizens seek psychoanalysis on a couch of technocrat design, the basic principles of a classical education should be applied. Philosophical inquiry is meant to seek an understanding of the truth. Truth, when known, vindicates the dignity of the person and the value intrinsic within the human race. Therefore, it comes as a great letdown to face up to the horrendous savageness that society accepts as typical behavior. The Psychological techniques used to train people to accept tyranny as the normal course of conduct is practiced by every despotic regime."

"During his State of the Union speech on Tuesday evening, Barack Obama is going to promise to make life better for middle class families. Of course he has also promised to do this during all of his other State of the Union addresses, but apparently he still believes that there are people out there that are buying what he is selling. Each January, he gets up there and tells us how the economy is “turning around” and to believe that much brighter days are right around the corner. And yet things just continue to get even worse for the middle class. The numbers that you are about to see will not be included in Obama’s State of the Union speech. They don’t fit the “narrative” that Obama is trying to sell to the American people. But all of these statistics are accurate. They paint a picture of a middle class that is dying. Yes, the decline of the U.S. middle class is a phenomenon that has been playing out for decades. But without a doubt, our troubles have accelerated during the Obama years. When it comes to economics, he is completely and utterly clueless, and the policies that he has implemented are eating away at the foundations of our economy like a cancer. The following are 27 facts that show how the middle class has fared under 6 years of Barack Obama…"
"Vaccines are one of the most controversial medical therapies, and it’s impossible to make an informed decision unless you know both sides of the story. In the process of knowing both sides, the historical context is critical."

"When Americans think of Mexico, it is generally in the context of vast numbers of unlawful immigrants, or of a place for vacations on sandy beaches. It is time to start thinking of that nation in a different and frightening context: that of a dangerously failed state on our border, a vacuum of power that is attracting America’s enemies. The murder several months ago of 43 teachers-in-training by drug cartels highlights the depths to which Mexico has fallen. Despite the viciousness of this atrocity, Washington has been comparatively silent, even though in parts of the Texas border area, the kidnapping, murder, and harassment of landowners within the U.S. by these cartels are already occurring. According to the National Interest, “Since 2008, the seven main drug cartels have emerged as an existential threat to Mexico’s future. Cartels like Los Zetas, which recruit members from Mexico’s Special Forces and federal police, behave like organized paramilitaries, not ordinary criminals. They generate perhaps $30 to $40 billion a year in illicit profits. And the price has been horrendous. Between 2007 and 2012, around 47,000 Mexicans were killed in the drug war. Some estimate that the true toll is over 60,000.” Violent crime may be the least of the threats."
"When Congress and the President sought to institute a measure of capital controls on the people of the United States, and keep the public from rushing outside the country to move their money for protection, they came up with a scheme known as FACTA. FACTA is the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, and under this draconian piece of legislation is the demand on any foreign bank that does business with the U.S., or utilizes SWIFT to trade in dollars, that they must provide the Internal Revenue Service all personal and financial information on any America having an account outside of the U.S.. The ramifications of this became felt almost immediately as foreign banks began closing customer accounts and halting any future programs that allowed Americans to transact, invest, or deposit money offshore. And on Jan. 13, the next phase of FACTA came online as the IRS announced the initiation of a database to monitor in real time customer accounts of sovereign and foreign banks. Known as the International Data Exchange Service, this colossal repository will now treat anyone with abank account as a suspect and person of interest, and assume guilt no matter if any financial crime or evidence of tax evasion has occurred."
"Where are people working? Where the money is — federal money, that is. In a Friday map series published by Pew Charitable Trusts’ Stateline blog, analysts lay out the state of labor force participation — how many people who could be working are actually working or trying to get a job — and reveal how dismal the situation has been between 2008 and 2013. Nationwide, the labor force participation rate plummeted, reaching lows not seen since 1978 and undermining future claims that the jobs situation is improving. Only one region saw labor force participation rise: Washington, D.C., seat of the federal government."
"A pilot venture called the Kentucky Applicant Registry and Employment Screening program, or KARES. kicked off last May, with 24 long-term care facilities across the state sending applicants to 35 fingerprint collection sites. Kentucky is one of 25 states to receive a $4 million grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to fund the program. The new high-tech background check program is a pre-hiring fingerprint-supported state and FBI Web portal available to long-term care facilities and employers. The portal was created to support the Kentucky National Background Check Program, a state effort intended to help reduce the potential for abuse — including financial exploitation — of elderly and vulnerable adults. The LiveScan electronic fingerprint units, provided by Virginia-based biometic and identity solution company MorphoTrak, are kept at three dozen employment training centers. The fingerprint scanning process takes about 30 minutes, after which applicant data is transmitted to local police and FBI offices. Results come back within 24 to 72 hours."
"As a prepper, you’re likely familiar with the horrors of poison ivy, oak and sumac. And you can probably avoid them most of the time. But in the darkness of night, accidently brushing against a plant while out on patrol, or worse, when using the “facilities” - is not uncommon. If you know you’ve been exposed, you can wash the slippery resin off your skin in time. But most never realize their trespass, and only learn of it 12-72 hours later when blisters begin forming. By that time it’s too late. The oily resin on the underside of the leaves has now firmly attached to your skin. After 30 minutes, there’s no way to remove it. It must fall off on its own – and that takes three weeks. Symptoms are most severe on days four through seven. The oil can rub off you and onto your pets, clothes, bedding and friends during this period. You end up sharing the itchy, swollen, red rash and its weeping blisters with others. That being said, the poison is rarely spread from one person’s skin to another’s after it’s been washed with soap. Further, if the blisters break open, the fluid will not contaminate other people. The itch-inducing resin in all three plants is Urushiol. It’s an oil that’s contained in the plants’ roots, stems, and leaves. It sticks to anything it touches. If your dog rubs up against you after he’s brushed against one of the plants, you end up with a rash. Worse yet, if someone is burning the plants and you’re close by, the resin can aerosolize and land on your skin."
"Using your own two eyes. I see articles all the time about how important night vision devices are and I agree. The problem for most of us is the cost to get a really good set. Plus there are always problems with breakage and batteries. So what happens when they break or are just not available? You can increase your natural ability to see at night by applying the following four principals of night vision."
"U.S. Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-Va.) recently introduced H.R. 131, a bill that would more comprehensively address the interstate transportation of firearms and ammunition for law-abiding gun owners. Current federal law guarantees the right of law-abiding persons to transport firearms between two locations where they have a legal right to possess and carry them, regardless of state or local laws that would otherwise apply. The firearm must be cased or otherwise not readily accessible. Unfortunately, anti-gun local officials are using overly restrictive state licensing laws to harass and prosecute travelers who have made every effort to comply with the law, resulting in seized guns that are sometimes never returned, delayed travel, legal fees, and sometimes even unnecessary guilty pleas. H.R. 131 would ensure the law has the effect Congress intended when it passed more than 25 years ago. Specifically, the legislation would make clear that transportation of both firearms and ammunition is federally protected, as well as expand the protections afforded to travelers to include “staying in temporary lodging overnight, stopping for food, fuel, vehicle maintenance, an emergency, medical treatment, and any other activity incidental” to the trip. Additionally, the bill would place the burden of proof clearly on the state to show that the traveler failed to comply with the law."
"The need to amend the Bill of Rights to protect medical freedom in America is now greater than ever. Yesterday, government thugs in Hot Springs, Arkansas raided and searched the home of a couple who were in possession of a simple mineral supplement called Miracle Mineral Solution. Law enforcement officers of Garland County, Arkansas served a search warrant on the Stanley home — yes, possession of a legal, medicinal mineral supplement is now grounds for being searched by the government — where they took the family’s seven children by force. “The investigation ended in the removal of seven children from their home in Garland County,” reports ArkansasMatters.com “The family has cried foul, saying only the father has taken it and it’s mostly used for purifying water for their garden.”
"The computer forecast models have taken a turn for the cold. The prospects of a January thaw are dropping right off the map. Even the chances that the U.S. East Coast will hold on to some above-normal temperatures into the last week of the month are fading like cheap paint in the bright sun. Instead of displaying the gold and orange of milder weather, the maps have turned blue across the Midwest, which may be the same color your lips will be when the temperature drops. For the East, the outlook is for seasonal readings, and given that it’s January, you can color those cold, too. “The big story this week is that our expected January thaw next week has been obliterated, and that the models keep getting colder and colder in general, starting next week through the end of January,” said Todd Crawford, a meteorologist with WSI in Andover, Massachusetts. While it’s still just a prediction, the news cheered some natural gas traders wishing that cold would arrive and land in the right places. Gas for February delivery rose 9.9 percent to $3.233 per million British thermal units yesterday on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the biggest one-day gain in 11 months. The advance continued today, with futures up as much as 3.7 percent to $3.352 as of 11:08 a.m."
"Apple is considering storing customers’ biometric data in the cloud to enable next-generation payment methods, according to new patent application found by Apple Insider. The application relates to “finger biometric sensor data synchronisation via a cloud computing device and related methods,” with one potential implementation being to authorise a “financial transaction.” Simply put, this means Apple is considering using its cloud hosting service iCloud to store customers’ fingerprints, so they can be synced to other devices when required — such as to pay for a purchase."
"Politicians are ethical people. Just ask them. It turns out, the leaders who make rules for a living don’t like rules as much when the tables are turned on THEM. Case and point, in the House of Representatives, as the new class of lawmakers erases decade-old ethics standards from the rule books. This isn’t the first time Congress has bent the rules in their favor. They don’t have to use Obamacare, lawmakers that are protected by men with big guns often try to strip smaller guns from their constituents, and now, politicians are showing their true colors once again. This time, the House is cutting back on transparency, making it even harder for watchdogs to call them out or keep them in check. You’ve heard of the Ethics Committee. Rules in place, to keep politicians from breaking the rules. Some of these ethics rules are the very reason New York Congressman Michael Grimm was forced to resign from power just this week. Now, the Ethics Commission is losing leverage in a big way. The new language in the bill applies to both of the two main watchdog groups. It says they “may not take any action that would deny any person any right or protection provided under the Constitution of the United States.” And if a Congressman is charged or accused, they highlighted new language in the bill, essentially allowing the accused party to get a head start on covering their tracks. It really reads a lot like the Miranda rights officers read to suspects when taking them into arrest. Any politician facing investigation “shall be informed of the right to be represented by counsel and invoking that right should not be held negatively against them.” Now, if a politician is facing Ethics charges, the commission has to warn him ahead of time, and essentially tip him off to keep quiet."
"They arrest people for feeding homeless people in some cities. And God forbid you are a doctor in Mississippi with an excellent reputation who wants to treat people for free. Can’t have that. Many of Dr. Landrum’s patients can’t afford to drive to a doctor’s office. So he comes and sees them. I thought that was called a “house call.” Why do the busybodies have to regulate EVERYTHING?"
"When a government proposes to abandon one of the fundamental principles of justice, there had better be a powerful reason. Equality before the law is not ditched lightly. Surely? Well read this and judge for yourself. The UK government, like that of the US and 13 other EU members, wants to set up a separate judicial system, exclusively for the use of corporations. While the rest of us must take our chances in the courts, corporations across the EU and US will be allowed to sue governments before a tribunal of corporate lawyers. They will be able to challenge the laws they don’t like, and seek massive compensation if these are deemed to affect their “future anticipated profits”. I’m talking about the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and its provisions for “investor state dispute settlement”. If this sounds incomprehensible, that’s mission accomplished: public understanding is lethal to this attempted corporate coup."
"Labor unions representing professionals and skilled workers from many fields have publicly opposed mandatory vaccination in written statements to a government organization. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, skilled laborers, teachers, flight attendants, manufacturing employees, energy workers, and members of many more professions have spoken out against mandatory vaccines to the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC). This news is not new, but you probably didn’t know that so many labor unions and trade groups are collectively against mandatory vaccination. These groups, representing millions of workers, include names that may surprise you."
"There is a movement to make children into social animals, but not just that. The objective is to make them good social animals, and better than good—the best and most wonderful, special, special, special social animals… and in the process, to cherish them, to profess great love for them—when love is ALREADY a given. When you pile sloppy sentiment on top of what is already naturally there, you’re selling a child a grotesque counterfeit, and he knows it. He either invents his own false sentiments, in order to have a role in the farce, or he rebels at a deep level. Either way, he’s confused. He doesn’t understand these insane overreaching adults.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport) It may be hard for today’s parents to believe, but millions of children in America came through the public education system in the 1940s and 50s, and learned the basics—without a shred of cheery happy rainbow goo-goo decorations and slogans on the walls of classrooms."
"Indiana State Representative Jim Lucas is proposing to eliminate the state law that requires individuals to have a license to carry a handgun. There has been an increase in the number of applicants in his state of Indiana as well as other states across the nation. Currently a license is required to carry a handgun in your car or on your person, but this law would change under Lucas’ bill. Because of this change, several Class A and Class B misdemeanors would also be eradicated."
"From a unique nation ruled by its own citizens when it threw off the yoke of tyranny imposed upon it by the British in the late 1700’s, to what it has become today, proves true the words of Benjamin Franklin when asked about the kind of country the United States had become…“What have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” Franklin replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” With the “Imperial Presidency” now ruling America for the sole benefit of the elite classes, and with so many laws the United States government itself is unable to tell how many there are [ US Justice Department official Ronald Gainer “You will have died and been resurrected three times and still not have an answer to this question.”], it would be easy for anyone to say that the Republic is now dead, and will never be again. They would be wrong, however, to say so because of the simple fact that the Republic is NOT the rulers of America, the people are! And unless you kill all of the people, the Republic is as alive now as it ever has been."
