The U.S. Should Quit the UN
The nuclear-armed adolescent running North Korea is firing off missiles into the ocean, China is expanding militarily and threatening its neighbors, and Russia has muscled its way into Crimea. In the Middle East, horrific Muslim terrorism and murder is mushrooming, and the former head of the CIA, retired Gen. Michael Hayden said he expects ISIS to attempt an attack on targets in the U.S. or Europe. There is indeed a crying need for a capable international peacekeeper. Yet, throughout this all, has anyone seen or heard from the UN? Has it done even one iota “To maintain international peace and security” or help with “The suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace?” Seemingly, the UN has done virtually nothing to secure peace.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
The success of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is the beginning of an entirely new business strategy I expect to see more of in the future of non-profit fundraising tactics. The rules of the ALS challenge go like this: people record themselves dumping a bucket of ice over their heads. Followed by posting the video to social media, the person challenges friends they tag to do the same within 24 hours or to donate money to ALS. Unprecedented influxes in funds raised by ALS non-profits suggest that the majority of people taking the challenge are dumping ice and donating dollars. This has other non-profits attempting to generate a viral fad of their own, but so far none have been as lucrative or as fad-tastic as the ice-bucket challenge thus far. [more...]
Michigan Teacher Compares Ferguson Looting to the Boston Tea Party, Cites 'White Privilege'
By Kyle Olson
Activist teachers are already spinning yarns in their classrooms to score political points in the shooting death of Ferguson, Missouri teen Michael Brown. The unidentified Selma, Alabama teacher who was suspended for having students reenact the shooting isn't the only one. Mike Kaechele, a Grand Rapids, Michigan teacher says the incident, as well as resulting looting and rioting, are a good reminder that "institutional racism has always been" in America. [more...]
The Slaughter of the Children
By Joe Messina
There seems to be a common thread to reporting on violence by the mainstream media. They only show what they want you to see to get you on their side. If someone shows the REAL violence, the REAL pictures, the REAL savagery of what’s taking place in the Middle East, it's inappropriate. The cries for Israel to stop bombing innocent children in Palestine is on practically every news channel, every minute of the day. Think about it, these are cries for Israel to stop defending itself because Palestinian kids were dying accidentally (or not so accidentally for those parents who chose to remain in an area they were warned would be bombed).

Are Bad Actors - ISIS, Putin, Iran, Hamas and China - Exploiting a Weak Obama?
This week on the POLITICAL INSIDERS: With the ISIS beheading of an American journalist, are we heading toward another military intervention in the Middle East? Did the trade of Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban monsters lead to this beheading? Did Putin invade Ukraine because he thinks Obama is weak? [more...]
