Thanksgiving did not become a national holiday until Lincoln nationalized all the state Thanksgiving celebrations by issuing a proclamation written by Secretary of State William Seward (according to Lincoln’s White House secretary, John Nicolay) on October 3, 1863. Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation is a masterpiece of lies, deceptions, and false propaganda that would have impressed any twentieth-century tyrant.
Paracord, according to Wikipedia, is a “light weight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachute during World War II. Once in the field, paratroopers found this cord useful for many other tasks. It is now used as a general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians.” The question isn’t “What can you do with paracord?” It’s “What can’t you do with paracord?”
It used to be that the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which enshrines the rights to free speech, free press, assembly, religious exercise and petitioning one’s government for a redress of grievances, was considered the most critical of the amendments in the Bill of Rights. Since writing my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, however, I have come to believe that the Fourth Amendment, which demands that we be “secure” in our persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures by the government and, consequently, stands as a bulwark against the police state, is, in fact, the most critical.
Dear readers, we are already at war here on our own soil. The war of ideas is on in earnest. The bombs are exploding all around us. Casualties to falsehoods abound, but the truth is sharper than a two-edged sword, to the dividing asunder of both joints and marrow.
If you’ve been watching the news, you’re well aware that a winter storm is bearing down on most of the United States. We’ve been warned of plummeting temperatures, ice, and lots of snow, even in places that don’t normally receive such weather. Are you ready to be snowed in for a few days? If not, there’s no time like the present to get prepared.
I, myself, have fallen prey in the past to the hype surrounding the latest "expert" opinion on the direction that this crippled nation is heading, especially the timing of its demise. Here is the conclusion that I have reached about this "inevitable" collapse event. If a collapse does occur, the "experts" and pundits who cycle through alternative media HAVE NO CLUE as to when it's going to happen. The people who do know when, and if, it's going to happen, do not editorialize within the sphere of alternative news. I'm pretty sure of that.
Far from being an obscure health food with dubious healing qualities, new research has shown the honey kills every type of bacteria scientists have thrown at it, including the antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" plaguing hospitals and killing patients around the world.
A February 2012 document called ‘SIGINT Strategy 2012-2016’ outlines exactly what the NSA plans to “dominate” the world’s Internet and telecom networks.
But make no mistake about it: The Senate now effectively has no rules. This means that, if Supreme Court "swing vote" Anthony Kennedy were to die or resign tomorrow, Obama would shove through another virulently anti-gun nominee.
