Ever Wonder Where Trump's-- And His Followers'-- Contempt For The Constitution Is Leading Us?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 16 hours ago
Jamie Raskin (D-MD), is the guy people turn to when they want the sharpest insight into how the Constitution was meant to work and how it really does work. He's pretty much acknowledged the smartest constitutional scholar in any room. "The president just impeached by the House of Representatives for contorting U.S. foreign policy to advance his reelection," he told us yesterday, "now usurps the war powers of Congress to make assassination of strategic (not operational) military personnel an instrument of U.S. foreign policy. This is a perilous new provocation and political distrac... more »

Keep Your Enemies Close And Your Allies... at Arm's Length If They Eat Falafel

jurassicpork at Welcome Back to Gotham City - 16 hours ago
(By Cyril Blubberpuss, Conservative-American) *I*ncoming! I yelled at an Iranian falafel vendor as I huffed and puffed down 42nd Street before I had to pay him for the falafel sticks I just got. I choose to look at that as not refusing to pay my fair share but as parody because that's what liberal fatheads are screaming because Trump took out one of our former allies. "World War Three is coming!", they scream while figuratively setting their long hair on fire. Well, let me tell you all what fractures my falafel stick: Liberal alarmism!

Capitalism and the Gut-Wrenching Hijack of India

Unknown at EAST BY NORTHWEST - 16 hours ago
Countercurrents, Dissident Voice, OffGuardian, Global Research, CounterPunch In India, the ‘development’ paradigm is premised on moving farmers out of agriculture and into the cities to work in construction, manufacturing or the service sector, despite these sectors not creating anything like the number of jobs required. The aim is to displace the existing labour-intensive system of food and agriculture with one dominated by a few transnational corporate agri-food giants which will then control the sector. Agriculture is to be wholly commercialised with large-scale, mechanised (mono... more »

Chart: Local approval in Michigan adult-use marijuana program creates uneven business opportunity

Maggie Cowee at Marijuana Business Daily - 16 hours ago
Michigan’s strategy for adult-use cannabis businesses empowers localities to control their communities, but it creates disparate business opportunities within the state’s market. Regulators chose not to restrict the number of recreational marijuana businesses allowed statewide but granted municipalities local approval. Adult-use sales began in Michigan on Dec. 1, 2019, and could reach $1.4 billion to […] Chart: Local approval in Michigan adult-use marijuana program creates uneven business opportunity is a post from: Marijuana Business Daily: Financial, Legal & Cannabusiness news f... more »

College costs continue to rise much faster than inflation, and too many students are plowing themselves into debt and wasting years of their lives pursuing pointless degrees.

*Record Heat and Cold Expose Climate Alarmists' Bias* Australia was literally on fire in December. Record heat made headlines in global media. So did the extreme rainfall in east Africa. You and everybody else on earth can guess what climate alarmists blamed for both: man-made global warming, a.k.a. climate change. But record cold in northern India at the same time didn’t make headlines in any major media in the United States or the United Kingdom. Why? Because it didn’t fit expectations. It’s a perfect example of climate alarmists’ obvious bias that’s seldom brought to light. In... more »

Marcia the military wife comments, guest blogger

The group where this was posted is generally conservative, and apparently some are unhappy about the President taking action (far less than Obama did with drones where he once in 2014 killed civilians at a wedding and the target wasn’t killed) because like Obama, he’s promised no more wars. So Marcia is letting whoever got snarky, have a piece of her mind. “As I sit here on the tail end of of my husband’s latest six month deployment to Kuwait, I’d like to as calmly as possible ask the many members of this group to tone down the anti military posts.

History is filled with failed prototypes that were better in some ways than the adopted rifle but were simply too complex for the end user and logistical services.

Think War In Iran Is Likely? World War III Could As Easily Occur In One Of These Places

In the first two decades following the fall of the Berlin Wall, great power war seemed virtually unimaginable.

In the 1980s, many countries were looking to transition from rifles that fired the older 7.62x51mm round to ones that could fire the new 5.56x45mm round.

Swiss F-5E/F Tiger Jets Could Soon Be Flying In The U.S. Air Force

David Axe at The National Interest - 19 hours ago
*David Axe* *Security, * It's up to Congress. *Key point: *The Navy and Marines use the F-5s to play the role of enemy planes during realistic war games U.S. lawmakers are close to finalizing the Pentagon’s budget for 2020.

*Kyle Mizokami* *Security, * Don't violate their air space. *Key Point:* Numbers are not everything.

The Russian Air Force, while plane-for-plane older than many air forces, has numbers, the ubiquity of the largest country by size on Earth, a modernization plan and nuclear weapons. It cannot be ignored, and thanks t... more »
