Several Greenpeace activists hung a 70-foot political banner from a crane near the White House today. The banner measures 70-by-35 feet and is strategically positioned so that anyone looking at the South Lawn can clearly see the message directed at President Donald Trump. The sign has just one word – “RESIST’.

// January 8th, 2017 // No Comments » // Politics and legal

The following was released to the general public on January 6, 2017 by the DNI (Director of National Intelligence). In short, the release accuses Russia of attempting to influence the US’s 2016 election using a persona known as Guccifer 2.0 to release stolen (hacked) documents via Wikileaks.

Trump minions fight back with combo Sieg-Heil-Trump parade and George Soros protest in locations across the US

// November 16th, 2016 // No Comments » // Politics and legal

They’re calling themselves a part of Anonymous and to prove they’re a lot smarter than the Alt-Righters, threw up a Dox of George Soros (who they say funds Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, etc.). Turns out the “Dox” was nothing more than a nifty little bio (see below). Today they announced a “nationwide Trump […]

Here’s all you need to know about the dangerous Alt-Right movement – straight from the Breitbart (Stephen Bannon’s) published manifesto

// November 14th, 2016 // No Comments » // Politics and legal

In early 2016, Brietbart News published an explanation of their Alt-Right movement. It attempted to defend and justify the Alt-Rights rhetoric. Let’s take a trip through the manifesto, with quotes directly taken from Breitbart’s published philosophy, and untangle the purple prose to reveal what the Breitbart’s “brainy” Alt-Right really believe.

Why are students at Texas State University dying to have a good time (while officials ignore the elephant in the room)

// November 4th, 2016 // No Comments » // Politics and legal

Conveniently situated off I-35, splitting the authority of Hays County and Guadalupe County, the campus sits near San Marcos River and Guadalupe River – both popular party destinations for students of an age when rational adult-like decision-making is just beginning to take root. Being a “party school” may be a good draw for the local […]

Americans are intelligent but history shows they could still elect a fascist, Hitler-like leader

// August 9th, 2016 // No Comments » // Politics and legal

To determine if America could indeed reshape the world by “accidentally” electing a fascist leader, we have to look no further than Nazi Germany. Nazi Germany was inconceivable, unbelievable, and sadly, irreversible. Although everyone is familiar with Hitler’s Nazi regime, many fail to recognize the subtle series of steps that allowed it to be.

WTF?!? Trump finally releases economic plan in Detroit and his minions are gonna riot

// August 8th, 2016 // No Comments » // Politics and legal

Harsh agitations aside, a lot of what Trump says makes sense – a least to some degree. Then he goes and does something goofy like releasing an economic plan that to his minions, must feel like a punch in the face. Here’s what Trump plans to do and why it’s so outrageously bizarre.

Arrest records show Alton Sterling was not the “gentle giant” as portrayed by the media

// July 11th, 2016 // No Comments » // Politics and legal

The arrest records of Alton Sterling (aka Alton Bertell Sterlings) have been released and they don’t do much to help his case nor support his aunt’s claim that he was a “gentle giant”. Sterling was the 37-year-old black man who died at the hands of Baton Rouge police during an arrest for “brandishing a weapon”. […]

CIA documents reveal systematic torture – have we forgotten the cost of freedom?

// June 16th, 2016 // No Comments » // Politics and legal

New documents were released this week which detail the brutal interrogation techniques sanctioned by the CIA after the 9/11 attacks. The published CIA guidelines reveal that the acceptable level of prisoner discomfort is measured by the amount of permanent physical damage it inflicts on the detainee and not whether or not it violates our humanity […]

Really? Paul Ryan snuck the full text of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act into the emergency budget bill last night

// December 16th, 2015 // No Comments » // Politics and legal

I suspect this will be big news over the course of the next few days and rightfully so. With the threat of government shutdown looming, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan introduced a 2,000-page “omnibus” budget bill as a last-minute compromise. Most of the bill looks fairly legit until you get to page 1,728 where […]

We have ISIS’s secret internal administrative plans – and man, are they a doozy

// December 8th, 2015 // No Comments » // Politics and legal

The following was purportedly leaked from an ISIS administrator to researcher Aymenn al-Tamimi who passed the document to The Guardian. Despite relatively immature prose that looks like it was written in crayon, the document was published in several sources. Various English translations are floating around the web and I took the clearest of each to […]
