Maybe Doomsday preppers aren’t so crazy after all.

As nuclear threats loom from countries like Iran and North Korea, the US is knocking the dust off decades-old bunkers intended to protect government officials — and even start a new civilization — in the case of just such a nightmare event.

JOHN DERBYSHIRE • JUNE 9, 2017 • 1,100 WORDS

The really striking feature of the June 8 U.K. election was the relative success of the Labour Party under its leader Jeremy Corbyn.

This crazy old Lefty, who never saw a commie dictator or an anti-British terrorist he didn’t want to kiss up to, and who won the endorsement of the British Communist Party for Thursday’s election, somehow got forty percent of Brits to vote for him, five days after anti-British terrorists ran amok in the nation’s capital. What’s up with that?

If the Clintons were not so down-market, they would have fit perfectly into 15th century Florence, the city that gave us Botticelli, Cellini, the Medici, and of course Machiavelli. Renaissance Florence was not confined to painting and literature; in fact, double speak, or lying, was as prevalent in as art and making money, and the greatest exponent of lying was the flattering favorite son of the city, Niccolo himself.

Bones found in a cave in Morocco add 100,000 years to the history of modern human fossils. These bones are from “early anatomically modern” humans — our own species, Homo sapiens, with a mixture of modern and primitive traits, an international team of anthropologists, paleontologists and evolutionary scientists report in a pair of papers published Wednesday in the journal Nature.

The Southwest, to some extent, has mistaken the drought cycle we’re in as being climate change. People have talked about this up and down but the fact remains that the big cities of the Southwest exist only because water could be moved to them. All the mega-cities of the Southwest—Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix—are sitting smack dab in the middle of deserts and only exist because water could be moved to them. That’s how they grew and the only reason they could grow. So, guess what’s going to happen if that water isn’t available? Right. Shake hands with the Anasazi.

Says It Would Be a ‘Crummy World’ If America Wasn’t Constantly Intervening Jason Ditz

Speaking over the weekend at a conference in Singapore, Defense Secretary James Mattis urged the world to “bear with” the US as they adjust to the election of a new president, insisting that the US remains committed to engaging in global intervention, and that it is “very deeply rooted in the American psyche.”

I was thinking about writing a post containing the list of CEOs of major US corporations who have come out against Trump’s decision regarding the Paris Climate Accord. I am overwhelmed. I would make my life easier by writing a list of those who haven’t.

I cannot let it go unsaid regarding one of these: Elon Musk. It is really hilarious to consider that he has no company without the government’s involvement in the climate.

None of these CEOs is a climate expert; all of them publicly complain about regulation. You would think that this combination of characteristics would lead to either at best cheering the elimination of the horrendous regulatory burdens imposed by yet another international scheme or at worst shutting up on a topic that they really don’t know much about.

But, of course, we know better.

Sen. Burr Wants All Copies Returned to Ensure They Never Get OutJason Ditz Posted onJune 2, 2017CategoriesNewsTagsCIA, Torture, Trump

The likelihood of the full version of the 2014 CIA torture report compiled by the Senate Intelligence Committee ever being made public has dropped precipitously, as President Trump has begun returning all copies of the still-classified document to the committee chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R – NC).

Last year Philippine president, Rodrigo Duterte, ordered US troops to leave his country, cutting 65 years of military ties. This dispute has been bubbling up for awhile, and Duterte has finally had enough of US Imperialists treating him like a “doormat”. His decision was a major blow to the US Military Industrial Complex as the Philippines was a key stronghold to put pressure on China in the South China Sea dispute.

C-SPAN will be recording “The National Security State & JFK” conference in its entirety. This is a testament to the conference’s impressive line-up of speakers and the ideas that they are presenting. Set your DVRs or watch the conference live.

The conference will begin with an analysis by the noted economist Jeffrey Sachs of Kennedy’s famous “Peace Speech” at American University in June 1963 and end with a panel presentation on President Kennedy featuring Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone. You will hear some of the most insightful and thought-provoking talks on the national-security state, including one by former GOP Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul, and Stephen Kinzer (former New York Times reporter and author of Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq); Douglas Horne (author of Inside the Assassination Records Review Board: The U.S. Government’s Final Attempt to Reconcile the Conflicting Medical Evidence in the Assassination of JFK); Michael Glennon (author of National Security and Double Government); Peter Janney (author of Mary’s Mosaic: The CIA Conspiracy to Murder John F. Kennedy, Mary Pinchot Meyer, and Their Vision for World Peace); Jefferson Morley (author of CIA & JFK: The Secret Assassination Files); James DiEugenio (author of The Assassinations and Reclaiming Parkland), Michael Swanson (author of The War State), and Jacob G. Hornberger (FFF president and author of The Kennedy Autopsy).

At this conference you will learn how and why America was converted from a limited-government republic to a national-security state, how America’s foreign policy of regime-change has adversely impacted our country and others, and how the United States became the premier country in the area of assassination.

You will also learn about President John F. Kennedy’s policies during the Cold War, his dramatic decision to reach out to the Soviet Union and communist world in a spirit of friendship and peaceful coexistence, and the enormously adverse, negative, and volatile reaction to JFK’s plans to change the direction of our country.
