With supposed “global warming” still on pause for almost 18 years and counting, the United States has seen its coldest year ever so far in 2014, according to U.S. government temperature data compiled by climate researchers. Indeed, parts of the North American continent — particularly around the Great Lakes region — have seen temperatures as far as ten degrees below average between January and May. Thousands of new record lows have been recorded so far this year across the country, too.
Most Americans drink fluoride every day as part of what critics refer to as an involuntary mass-medication program. Organized dentistry argues that it is good for children’s teeth. However, according to a recent report in The Lancet, one of the world’s most prestigious medical journals, the industrial chemical added to water supplies across much of the United States is actually a dangerous developmental neurotoxicant.
Like virtually every alarmist global-warming warning produced by government or the United Nations in recent decades, it did not take long for the Obama administration’s latest doom-and-gloom-packed “climate change” report to be debunked by independent scientists. Indeed, it took less than two weeks for experts to go through the 840-page White House document and tear its outlandish claims to shreds — often using United Nations reports and the federal government’s own data to do so, issuing a blistering critique of the “nonsense” and “deception” put forward by the administration.
After the Obama administration “switched sides” in the terror war and lawlessly heeded the United Nations’ demand for an international war against former U.S. ally Moammar Gadhafi, Libya was supposed to be “liberated.” Instead, the nation began to collapse as various tribes, factions, and al-Qaeda-linked Islamist militias backed by Obama, NATO, and the UN battled each other in competing bids to rule over the ruins. The U.S. ambassador and several other Americans were ultimately killed in Benghazi amid the aftermath, too.
Now, the supposedly “liberated” country is on the verge of yet another civil war.
Despite the supposed showdown between the Obama administration and Moscow, even more U.S. taxpayer funds will soon be lining Russian strongman Vladimir Putin’s pockets. The International Monetary Fund, funded primarily by taxpayers from the United States and the European Union, announced on April 30 that it would be bailing out the new Ukrainian government with a massive loan package. Authorities in Kiev, meanwhile, plan to use a big portion of those bailout funds to pay Putin for energy supplies coming from Russia. Much of the rest will be used to prop up Western mega-banks.
With the Obama administration-pushed Common Core nationalization of education sparking an unprecedented backlash among parents and teachers across the political spectrum, now would seem to be an especially bad time to foist even more radical “science” standards on American schools as well. Still, that is exactly what is happening with the “Next Generation Science Standards” currently being rolled out in multiple states. Over a dozen federal agencies reportedly helped produce the deeply controversial program, which critics say represents an attempt to indoctrinate future generations.
In a move observers and officials said was aimed at satisfying the “personal vendetta” of a citizen against Bowie County Judge Sterling Lacy, commissioners for the Northern Texas county voted three to two last week to ban the display of The New American magazine and other material deemed to have a “political point of view” from his office. However, in doing so, Judge Lacy, who presides over the county commission, said officials may have inadvertently opened up a “can of worms” that could lead to the prohibition of everything from the Constitution to the Bible. Activists even suggested the American flag could be prohibited under the ban.
A plot by the Obama administration to impose Internet IDs on Americans is now officially being rolled out, with pilot programs for the controversial online “driver’s license” scheme already beginning in both Michigan and Pennsylvania. According to the White House, the virtual “Identity Ecosystem” being funded and pushed by the federal government is supposed to make the Internet more “secure” and “convenient.” Critics across the political spectrum, however, are warning that the Orwellian scheme only makes it more convenient for the feds to spy on people, control the public, and suppress dissent.
The global United Nations-mandated “war on drugs” has been a horrific “failure” and must end so nations can set their own policies without UN interference, according to a recently released report by the London School of Economics’ IDEAS Center. Endorsed by an impressive roster of experts, economists, and insiders, the document highlights the exploding consumption of illegal substances under the “failed” planetary prohibition regime while detailing a wide range of consequences associated with the war. Among the most troubling: exploding violence, human-rights abuses, criminal empires, corruption, unprecedented incarceration rates, and more.
The European “Court of Justice,” the European Union’s highest judicial body, ruled this week that individuals have a “right to be forgotten” and that search engines such as Google must comply with requests to remove links. Analysts were divided on the ruling, with some noting that the "censorship" raises major concerns about the right to free speech and freedom of information, while others celebrated the purported extension of the right to privacy. The dubious court’s ruling also advances the long-time globalist goal of transnational regulation of the Internet.
