The national debt should be a huge concern for every single American, as the government is essentially stealing from people not yet born to pay for things now.  As debt increases, so does volatility and interest rates; and at some point, the government will have to admit they cannot pay that money back.

“Reaching this unfortunate milestone so rapidly is the latest sign that our fiscal situation is not only unsustainable but accelerating,” said Michael A. Peterson, chief executive officer of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, a nonpartisan organization working to address the country’s long-term fiscal challenges.  According to Yahoo, the problem is that our taxes are too low, not the government’s frivolous spending.

According to Yahoo, a big national debt can also make it harder for the government to increase spending to combat the next recession or devote more money to retraining workers and helping the poor, among other programs.  It seems that the media is more concerned about making sure money is funneled through incompetent bureaucrats than anything else.  If government programs designed to help the poor with stolen funds (taxes) were effective, there wouldn’t be a skyrocketing homeless epidemic infecting socialist cities in California.

The problem is that government programs are never effective and aren’t voluntary.  They simply take money from some, and after paying incompetent “public servants” a pittance is returned to “help the poor.”

Peterson attributed the growing national debt to “a structural mismatch between spending and revenues.” And while that’s the truth, the media continues to hide the fact that firstly, taxation is theft simply because it’s compulsory, and not voluntary. Peterson then says that the biggest drivers of the deficit are the aging population, high healthcare costs, and growing interest payments, combined with a tax code that fails to generate sufficient revenue, he said.

However, what the mainstream media fails to tell anyone is that the federal government generated plenty of revenue (stolen funds). The ruling class collected a record amount of taxes in 2018. They stole $1,683,537,000,000 in individual income taxes in fiscal 2018 (October 2017 through September 2018), according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released today.  That doesn’t include taxation and theft of any other kind. In fiscal 2018, total tax collections equaled $3,328,745,000,000, according to the Treasury statement.  So what we have here, folks is a spending problem.  The ruling class steals your money, spends it on lavish salaries and homes for themselves, then goes into debt to not fix the problems they promised to when you voted. And yet we have a nation of statists that bow to this immoral culture as if it’s the only religion.

Perhaps if the mainstream media would dare to actually publish how much money is stolen from Americans to pay for the lavish lifestyles of the wealthy rulers who dictate their lives, we would have a lot more people demanding their freedom from the totalitarians they voted for.

There’s no doubt that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s use of the FBI to conduct a raid on Roger Stone was not only tyrannical in nature, but was also orchestrated propaganda. Someone tipped CNN off to be there in the pre-dawn armed raid, and now there is video evidence from Roger Stone’s surveillance cameras that indicate the arrival of CNN cameramen and their theatrical direction by the FBI.

The conspiracy between government and the media is right in front of the American people’s eyes, but many simply will not believe it.  They don’t believe such a thing could actually be taking place in America like it does in third world dictatorships, but it is.  Many are too scared that they will face political backlash or lose their reputations to point out the depth of the corruption across the board, and thus, many become the very useful idiots they claim others are.  They are useful idiots in becoming controlled opposition by their silence and impotence.

Well, Infowars obtained video footage from Roger Stone’s surveillance cameras and demonstrate the collusion in a federal armed raid on Roger Stone with CNN tagging right along and being directed by them.

Here’s a six minute video report from Infowars, along with the relevant footage.

Mike Adams of Natural News also wrote on this saying “It’s all theater,” and it is.

Here’s Mike’s report:

(Natural News) Stunning new video footage released exclusively by InfoWars.com shows FBI personnel directing the CNN camera man who filmed the armed raid of Roger Stone. The new footage exposes the pure theater of the armed “Gestapo” raid on Roger Stone, which was carried out by 29 armed, geared-up FBI agents who now function as Robert Mueller’s domestic terrorism mercenaries.

The shocking video footage proves that the corrupt FBI was complicit in the theatrical staging of the arrest for CNN’s cameras, further proving that CNN was tipped off by someone in Robert Mueller’s office. Leaking this information to the media is a felony crime, demonstrating that Robert Mueller’s deep state mafia is, itself, a criminal operation engaged in domestic terrorism tactics against Americans.

The FBI attempted to confiscate this footage but reportedly failed to find and remove the DVR that captured it. Some of the video footage shows the FBI placing tape over the lens of one of the cameras, confirming that the FBI is actively engaged in attempts to cover up their crimes of violence that target innocent Americans for political purposes.

See the video screen grabs below, and share everywhere. This is now the America in which we live: A deep state, police state bureaucracy run by federal terrorists who stage armed raids against political enemies while collaborating with the anti-Trump media to stage such raids for propaganda “news” broadcasts. (All while the tech giants censor the independent media to silence the truth.)

Both CNN and the FBI are now clearly enemy combatants in a civil war being waged against America’s President and anyone linked to him. It’s time for all Americans to stand up and demand the arrest and criminal prosecution of Robert Mueller, James Comey, top FBI officials and CNN collaborators. The rogue deep state is out of control and has crossed the line into total criminality. The bureaucracy is now run by actual enemy combatants who are attempting to carry out a political coup in America, and they are now using Gestpo-style terrorism tactics to accomplish their intended goals.

The CNN production vehicle arrives, having been illegally tipped off about the imminent raid:

FBI thugs meet with CNN personnel and direct them to capture the footage of the imminent raid:

Armed FBI “Gestapo” thugs launch the raid, carrying numerous rifles and handguns which are aimed at Roger Stone and his innocent wife:

Roger Stone is handcuffed and arrested for “lying to Congress” — something that James Comey, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have repeatedly done on countless occasions. Notice the armed, rifle-wielding FBI mercenary on the right side of this frame as he’s pointing his rifle at the front window of Roger Stone’s home:

Stay informed. More video footage is coming. This is why the tech giants are desperately censoring all independent media, so that they can dominate the news narratives with their fake news and staged acts of terrorism. Twitter banned Natural News yesterday, and Apple has threatened to ban the Natural News app if we continue to publish stories that expose the lies and terrorism of the lunatic Left.

Hard as it is to believe, airline travel recently became even more unpleasant. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees being required to work without pay for the duration of the government shutdown resulted in many TSA workers calling in sick. The outbreak of “shutdown flu” among TSA employees forced some large airports to restrict the number of places mandatory TSA screenings were performed, making going through screening even more time-consuming and providing one more reason to shut down the TSA.

Airline security should be provided by airlines and airports. Private businesses, such as airlines, have an incentive to ensure their customers’ safety without treating them like criminal suspects or worse. Security personnel hired by, and accountable to, airlines would not force a nursing mother to drink her own breast milk or steal a stuffed lamb from a wheelchair-using three-year-old and subject the child to such an intensive screening that she cries “I don’t want to go to Disneyworld.” Those who claim that the TSA is necessary to keep us safe should consider that the Department of Homeland Security’s own studies show that TSA’s screenings and even the intrusive pat-downs are ineffective at discovering hidden guns, explosives, and other weapons.

TSA employees have no incentives to please, or even care about the well-being of, airline passengers. Instead, their jobs depend on pleasing politicians and bureaucrats. If we have learned anything since 9/11, it is that most politicians are more concerned with appearing to be “doing something” about security than actually reducing the risk of terrorist attacks. That is why politicians’ response to 9/11 was a series of actions — such as creating the TSA, passing the PATRIOT Act, and invading Iraq — that trade our real liberties for phantom security. Sometimes, pro-TSA politicians will bemoan the TSA’s “excesses” and even call for “reforming” the agency in order to pretend they care about their constituents’ rights.

Restoring responsibility for providing security to private businesses will encourage the development of new and innovative ways to more effectively provide security. In a free market, airlines and airports could compete for business on the basis that their flights are safer or their screening is less unpleasant then that of their competitors. If airlines were able to set their own security policies, they would likely allow pilots to carry firearms.

Private companies also strive to be consistent in providing services. Therefore, a company providing private security would never inconvenience its customers because of a “temporary shutdown.”

Because government operations are funded by coercive taxation rather than voluntary choices of consumers, federal officials cannot rely on the price system to inform them of whether they need to increase or decrease spending on airline security. In the private sector, businesses that charge more for security — or any other good or service — than individuals are willing to pay lose customers. Also, if businesses do not spend enough on security, people concerned about safety will be unwilling to use their services. Privatizing airline security is the only way to ensure that the “correct” amount of resources is being spent on airline safety.

In the 18 years since Congress created the TSA, the agency has proven itself incapable of providing real security, but more than capable of harrying Americans and wasting taxpayer dollars on security theater. Congress should permanently close the TSA and return responsibility for security to private businesses.

When it comes to the Obama’s, Americans are faced with a harsh reality. After 8 disgusting years of this obama-nation we realize the first question that should have been asked. Do we know anything about these people?

America are you okay?

What happened to this nation in the last decade is nothing less than an atrocity. In 2008 many Americans gathered at the polls hoping to make history by voting in the first black president. Opening the White House doors to many firsts for sure. Such as the first foreign president and the first transgender First-Lady declaring war on school lunch.

So, America are you okay?




Earlier this week a gay twitter account discovered something that may add to rumors that “Michelle” Obama is actually a man. Tweeter @usminority discovered the official Obama account @BarackObama was following @Fleshjack, the official account of Fleshjack gay sex toys.

This tweet put Twitter execs in full panic mode, working overtime to hide the truth and make it seem as if the proof never existed. However, the tweet gained enough attention before twitter would apply it’s damage control.

Further more, not only was Obama’s account following a gay sex toy account but also following a gay porn star account!

As this was unfolding Twitter jumped in and took action. First by blocking users from viewing who follows @Fleshjack and later hiding the Fleshjack account until the next day, after the truth was removed.

This all ties in with a claim by Larry Sinclair, who says he had gay sex with Barack Obama while doing cocaine. But as usual mainstream sources will do everything to ignore and even help cover up the truth.

Are you okay, America?

Once again we are reminded that everything about the Obamas is a lie. They came in to destroy the foundations of this nation. In eight years they turned the Democrat party into a bunch of raging anti-American lunatics.

America are you okay? So America are you okay? Are you okay, America? You’ve been hit by, you’ve been scammed by, a smooth criminal.

The Massachusetts attorney general has declared that the family behind the drug Oxycontin is responsible for the opioid epidemic ravaging the United States.  Purdue Pharma and eight members of the Sackler family who own the company, are being accused of personally starting the opioid crisis by deceptively selling Oxycontin.

According to CBS News, MA attorney general, Maura Healey alleges the Sackler family hired “hundreds of workers to carry out their wishes.” Those wishes included pushing doctors to get “more patients on opioids, at higher doses, for longer, than ever before” all while paying “themselves billions of dollars.” In her lawsuit, Healey names eight members of the family that own Purdue Pharma, alleging they “micromanaged” a “deceptive sales campaign.” In the conclusion to the complaint, Healey said the Sackler family used the power at their disposal to engineer an opioid crisis.

About 400,000 people died from opioid overdoses between 1999 and 2017, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The opioid epidemic is also being blamed for the drop in life expectancy in the United States that has been falling since its peak in 2014. On average, about 130 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose.

“They don’t want to accept blame for this. They blame doctors, they blame prescribers and worst of all, they blame patients,” Healey said. Purdue Pharma, on the other hand, called the accusations “a rush to vilify” the drugmaker. Healey also said that Purdue Pharma and the Sackler family are “one and the same.” There’s a lot in the lawsuit that’s still redacted, and lawyers for Purdue plan to argue on Friday that it should stay that way, reported CBS News.

In a statement, Purdue Pharma said the lawsuit “distorts critical facts” and “cherry-picked from among tens of millions of emails and other business documents.” In one such alleged instance, then-president Richard Sackler devised what Healey describes as Sackler’s “solution to the overwhelming evidence of overdose and death,” writing in a confidential email, “we have to hammer on the abusers in every way possible. They are the culprits and the problem.”

“Massachusetts’ amended complaint irresponsibly and counterproductively casts every prescription of OxyContin as dangerous and illegitimate, substituting its lawyers’ sensational allegations for the expert scientific determinations of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and completely ignoring the millions of patients who are prescribed Purdue Pharma’s medicines for the management of their severe chronic pain.

In a rush to vilify a single manufacturer whose medicines represent less than 2 percent of opioid pain prescriptions rather than doing the hard work of trying to solve a complex public health crisis, the complaint distorts critical facts and cynically conflates prescription opioid medications with illegal heroin and fentanyl, which are the leading cause of overdose deaths in Massachusetts. Throughout the complaint, the Commonwealth disregards basic facts about Purdue’s prescription opioid medications…”- Purdue Pharma to CBS News in a statement

Massachusetts is one of 36 states now suing Purdue Pharma. The states are accusing the company of deception in downplaying the dangers of OxyContin. In a 2007 federal settlement, the company admitted to falsely selling the drug as “less addictive” than rival products and were therefore forced to pay $630 million in fines.

Because of the highly addictive properties of opioids, CBD oil is fast becoming a replacement for expensive and dangerous drugs like Oxycontin.  Studies have found that CBD oil is effective for treating neuropathic pain, arthritis pain, anxiety, sleep disorders, and depression. “I’ve had some patients that have been able to get off some of those pain medications, which they hated taking,” said pharmacist Ira Katz. “It has no addictive properties and far less side effects than do a lot of the prescription pain medications.”

And you get the added bonus of staying out of the increasing drama between government and Big Pharama regarding the blame game for the opioid epidemic.
