The real cause of the California drought: The Government

California’s San Joaquin Valley is the salad bowl of the world, providing the majority of fruits and vegetables for the entire nation. But, with another man-made drought looming, the San Joaquin Valley is in danger of becoming a dust bowl unless immediate action is taken to change policies that put the needs of fish above the livelihood of people.

House Republicans have a bipartisan, comprehensive solution to end future man-made droughts, bring job and water supply certainty to the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys in California and decrease reliance on foreign food sources.

DOJ Admits Lois Lerner’s Emails Exist on Gov’t Backup System

Judicial Watch has learned that all computer records are backed up. Why haven't they been retrieved? "It would be too hard to go get Lois Lerner's emails," says a Department of Justice Attorney.

They've been lying...under oath, to courts, in hearings, to the press.

Just how much of a War Hawk is Hillary?

Hillary Clinton a war hawk? No, it can't be! You decide...

http://youtu.be/kt6mx0k8tSo

If you haven’t seen Rand Paul’s interview on Meet The Press today, scroll down (at the link) and watch it. What I want to take a look at here in this post is the left’s reaction. Why? O, I don’t know–it’s just fun to watch the left freak out! And he did more than just call Hillary a “war hawk.” Rand Paul had the audacity to call Iraq, “Hillary’s War...”

Swiss will vote on Nov. 30 for gold backed Franc

http://www.againstcronycapitalism.org/2014/08/will-the-swiss...

If the voters of Switzerland do choose to back their currency with gold I promise you that there will be MUCH more interest in the Swiss franc.

A gold backed currency? What a crazy concept. My bet is the market will love it. The banks will hate it, but overall the Swiss people will benefit. So will the non-Swiss who are paying attention now.

Switzerland yet again shows that it is the most sane nation-state on Earth.

Real ID Blowback: Massachusetts Residents ID No Longer Good at Some Federal Locations

Crap.

Federal agencies blocking entry, citing compliance

By Jessica Meyers | The Boston Globe
August 26, 2014

WASHINGTON — Susan Podziba couldn’t enter a federal building near Washington this month because her driver’s license revealed an unacceptable home state: Massachusetts.

Bay State residents can no longer use their driver’s licenses to get inside some government agencies because the state is one of nine that have not signed on to a federal law called REAL ID. If nothing changes, they will even lose the ability to display their licenses to board a plane.

The REAL ID measure presses states to verify citizenship and update security standards when they issue licenses. Congress intended the act to prevent terrorists who arrive in the country illegally from boarding planes. But officials in Massachusetts and elsewhere have balked at a program they contend costs millions, raises privacy concerns, and infringes on states’ rights.

States face no direct penalty other than the frustration of their citizens.

The Importance of Gold

It's Our Currency And Our Problem

Most Americans don't understand that gold is not an investment- it is an asset or an insurance policy.

Gold is money.

A country's currency not backed by gold is only as good as the soundness of its monetary and fiscal policy.

Monsanto's Worst Nightmare Coming True: The Rise of GMO Labeling

Activists against GMOs just might take down the biotech giants after all. GMO labeling could soon be a sweet reality.

Last week, Colorado broke a new record by bringing 16,950 signatures to a GMO labeling campaign for fall’s election, more than double the qualifying signatures needed to make sure that GMO labeling is on the ballot. This huge message to Monsanto accompanies a similar campaign in Oregon, all while the biotech industry awaits approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for more Agent Orange chemicals (2,4-D) to be used where glyphosate has failed.

A Mother’s Letter: “Who Gave the Order to Kill my Children?”

A Mother’s Letter: “Who Gave the Order to Kill my Children?”

Natalia, the mother of the murdered Christina, wrote a letter to the mother of Poroshenko’s children, asking: “Who gave the order to kill my children?”

I met Natalia, whose daughter and granddaughter were killed in the Grad shelling of Gorlovka by the Ukrainian troops, at the railway station in Kiev. In the eyes of the beautiful and once happy woman today there is deep pain, sadness and emptiness.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I had a nice long talk with Ernie Hancock of Freedom's Phoenix today, and he encouraged me to watch ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’ He said, "you’ll understand why when you see it."

I searched the DP for any discussion and turned up one post, but no discussion

When Ernie says something I take note. He said, "It is all about the database and the metadata, and this is where we are heading."

Anyone here seen it? If so, please let us know what you think.

Rand Paul: Hillary's 'War Hawk' Policies led to Benghazi Attack, Rise of ISIS

by MATTHEW BOYLE
27 Aug 2014, 9:45 AM PDT

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) certainly has a knack for boldness. On Sunday's Meet the Press, he dubbed U.S. military engagement in Libya “Hillary’s war” and stated the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) is not a result of President Obama's inaction in the Middle East but the unintended consequence of the U.S. military engagement in Libya.

CNN caught red handed covering up CDC whistleblower stories

(NaturalNews) While CNN salivates over the news potential of an African-American teen being shot by a police officer, the network deliberately censors any news of the systematic medical abuse of African-American children by the CDC and the vaccine industry. That's the startling revelation which has now surfaced from recent events.

Following the explosive story of a key CDC scientist and whistleblower going public with his admission that the CDC committed scientific fraud to bury the truth about MMR vaccines causing autism, CNN has twice censored citizen journalists who posted well-cited stories on CNN's iReport website.
