VIDEO - Obama recently criticized what he described as the “wild-wild-west” flow information in America, outraged that “conspiracy theorists” and skeptics of his global-warming theory now have a platform. He also reminisced on the days when just three establishment media outlets dominated the narrative, and were “generally” trusted by Americans. Today, polls show Americans have overwhelmingly rejected the establishment media's deception, lies, and propaganda. That is why Obama and the establishment he serves are calling for a “curating function” to help control information and the narrative. But the truth will remain the truth. And because the alternative media has done a better job of seeking and promoting the truth, in recent years it has seen an enormous increase in ratings and influence. This will continue as long as the truth is being reported – something the mischaracterized “mainstream” media has not done in quite some time.
The establishment has been celebrating that its Paris climate agreement has supposedly gone into effect on November 4. But the U.S. Senate was never given the opportunity to ratify the deal as required by the Constitution, meaning that, as far as the United States is concerned, Obama's UN agreement is legally meaningless.
Even as surveillance hawks such as FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and joint chairs of the Senate Intelligence Committee Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) continue to claim that terrorists and other criminals are using technology to “go dark,” so America needs an increased ability to perform civilian surveillance, the reality is that the hawks have more access to more data than ever before. And — as recent information confirms — many of the reasons for that increased surveillance ability are the supposed “reforms” that were sold to the American people as a way to curtail that surveillance.
At noon on Wednesday crude oil futures touched $45 a barrel on news that inventories soared last week by the most in 34 years, and the futures market is likely to continue its breathtaking selloff to $40 and perhaps even lower.
OPEC is in a game it initiated and that it can't win and can't quit. In the process, OPEC is becoming increasingly irrelevant while U.S. producers are pushing ahead.
Last Friday, millions of Internet users across the United States found themselves unable to access a long list of websites as a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack took those websites offline. The technique hackers used to cripple nearly half of the Internet was not particularly innovative or clever. The surprise about this attack is not that it happened, but that it did not happen sooner.
A spokesman for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) — the Department of Commerce agency focused on the conditions of the oceans and the atmosphere — issued a statement on October 24 observing that a major hurricane has not struck the United States in 11 years.
If and when the world cooks from the alleged man-made global warming, the United Nations and its largely unfree member regimes are determined to make sure you have to endure it with no air-conditioner or refrigerator. But the latest development in the UN’s “green agenda” is about much more than waging war on prosperity, liberty, and cooling technologies under the guise of saving Mother Earth, as UN leaders made clear in recent days.
The so-called “green transformation” of the world toward centralized control and global governance is now “unstoppable” and “irreversible,” claimed the UN environmental czar after a UN summit in Rwanda last week. At the controversial UN conference, under the pretense of battling alleged man-made global warming, close to 200 governments and dictators agreed to amend the “Montreal Protocol” with a new jihad on important molecules used in everything from air-conditioners and refrigerators to medical inhalers.
Conflicts of interests and blurry ethical lines mark nearly everything the Clintons have ever touched. The more that is known about Hillary’s e-mail scandal, the more obvious it becomes that corruption is something of a family trait. The dog-and-pony show that was sold to the American people as an investigation into Hillary’s e-mail may not have resulted in any real action against anyone of Team Clinton, but recently released transcripts of FBI interviews conducted during the investigation shed new light on just how deep the rabbit hole goes.
