What do you do when you’re the dictatorial leader of an oppressive government regime looking to maintain power while simultaneously preserving the facade of free and open elections? Well, if you’re the Obama administration then you look for avenues to nationalize state-run election infrastructure.
But you can’t just seize control of infrastructure that has been successfully run at the state level for a couple hundred years…that kind of stuff only happens in Venezuela and we’re better than that. No, you need a catalyst for this kind of blatant power grab. “Coincidentally”, a catalyst just like the FBI’s warning a couple of days ago about “foreign hackers [read Putin] penetrating state election systems.” Then, once you’ve defined the super villain, all you need is a couple of political cronies to go on a fear mongering tour to whip the electorate into a frenzy. And wouldn’t you know it…Harry Reid recently did just that by sending a letter to the FBI voicing his “concerns” that the “Russian government” may be looking to tamper with the upcoming presidential election. Per the New York Times, Harry Reid’s letter to the FBI included the following: Continue reading
This article is a must read for anyone in America or those outside of America wanting to see the true crisis the nation is soon to face.
It’s been building up for years, and the nation is indeed in freefall. The only thing left for America is hitting the bottom. It’s a given, and not an ‘if’ but ‘when’ type of scenario. America will see its second civil war, much bloodier than the first. The tragedy of it all, and the article hits the nail on the head: The true American patriots who love their nation will not succeed in any armed revolt. There will be no second revolution, only a failed attempt at best.
Violence is indeed not the solution and America cannot be retaken by force. Those who are gearing up for this battle with all the guns in the world will simply lose. This is not an attack on the Second Amendment or gun ownership, because that right is fully supported here. The point is this: If you live by the sword, you will die by the sword. By the time the second revolution comes, your guns will be rendered meaningless, as you will simply be droned from 50,000 feet above. You cannot compete against force multipliers and a tyrannical government that has purchased enough bullets for every citizen to receive six.
The upcoming crisis calls for wisdom, understanding, patience, discernment and most importantly above all: God.
Note: Since this article is such a well written, very informative and thorough piece, most of it will remained here for archiving purposes.
“A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.” — James Madison
America is a ticking time bomb.
All that remains to be seen is who—or what—will set fire to the fuse.
We are poised at what seems to be the pinnacle of a manufactured breakdown, with police shooting unarmed citizens, snipers shooting police, global and domestic violence rising, and a political showdown between two presidential candidates equally matched in unpopularity. Continue reading
Earlier this week, representatives of the US Cyber Command (CC) told the Joint Chiefs that the US military won’t be able to fend of a major cyberattack at least until 2019.
Brig. Gen. Charles L. Moore Jr., Joint Chiefs of Staff deputy director for global operations, told the House Armed Services Committee that, “We don’t have the scale or the complexity to truly represent a realistic and relevant threat, the ones that we’re truly trying to train to.”

Don’t think the islamists will stop at pride parades or clubs.
As was warned about years ago: They will be coming for America’s universities, high schools, kindergartens, hospitals and, yes, churches during mass.
The barbarians are not at the gate. The barbarians are within the gate — and have been for years just waiting for the green light.

A smuggling network has managed to sneak illegal immigrants from Middle Eastern terrorism hotbeds straight to the doorstep of the U.S., including helping one Afghan who authorities say was part of an attack plot in North America.
Immigration officials have identified at least a dozen Middle Eastern men smuggled into the Western Hemisphere by a Brazilian-based network that connected them with Mexicans who guided them to the U.S. border, according to internal government documents reviewed by The Washington Times.
Those smuggled included Palestinians, Pakistanis and the Afghan man who Homeland Security officials said had family ties to the Taliban and was “involved in a plot to conduct an attack in the U.S. and/or Canada.” He is in custody, but The Times is withholding his name at the request of law enforcement to protect investigations.
Some of the men handled by the smuggling network were nabbed before they reached the U.S., but others made it into the country. The Afghan man was part of a group of six from “special-interest countries.” Continue reading

(TRUNEWS) Texas Game Warden’s have begun training to counter the potential threat that terrorists could use the Port of Houston to smuggle radioactive material into the United States.
In an interview with local news, Tom Harvey, the Deputy Director for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Departments Communications Division, said Friday that “game wardens encounter all kinds of things on their patrols, including a lot of illegal fishing, and this [the threat of terrorists smuggling radioactive material] is a new threat we’re gearing up to be able to address.”
Harvey said that the Port of Houston has for years had radiation detectors to scan cargo, but now “we’ve acquired about a hundred devices that allow game wardens to detect radiological or nuclear emissions. These are little devices that can be worn on someone’s belt.”
