The Last Hour
I would just like to share a few of my observations from my recent trip to Russia (Moscow and vicinity). These are simply my observations and thoughts and by no means is this an in-depth report/comparison of the US/Russian political systems or societies. We all know that any country has its own unique problems.
That being said, it was eye-opening and even scary to view firsthand the differences between our nations at this point in time. What I saw was in stark contrast to the way Russia is depicted in our media. This being my first trip to Russia, I did not know what to expect.
Arrival (SVO Airport)
1. Entered immigration, NO armed officers, just the average immigration workers. I walked up to a friendly and smiling lady, she stamped my passport and waved me on.
2. Wow, that was easy, I thought, surely customs would be more like the U.S. I approached the customs section, had nothing to declare, I started to take my backpack off to show to the official, but she didn't seem to think I required extra scrutiny and waved me through.
3. That was it, in 10 minutes I was let loose in the "Evil Russian" empire.
4. I walked through the airport, searching for armed police/paramilitary, but I couldn't find any! I saw maybe 1 armed police officer in the airport. Very strange.
5. Maybe it was halftime in the war on terror in Russia. There were no stupid "threat level" announcements or battalions of TSA workers...just a chill airport like you might have seen here in the 60s.
During my stay:
1. I can't stress enough how CLEAN and ornate Moscow is, I was blown away. It was expensive though.
Senator John McCain attempted to respond to his very own gaffe by attacking Senator Paul. The comments on the Fox Facebook post are priceless…
“Sen. Paul has obviously been doing some somersaults as these beheadings took place, and the American people's opinion has shifted rather dramatically. He has even said I met with ISIS, which is patently false.”
The top comments are not looking good for John McCain...
The top 'liked' comment is, "Both parties are scared of Rand...I love it!"
Cruz said, “We should not permit them to return to America.” Those joining a violent group would automatically lose all of their rights as Americans citizens and are to be labeled traitors. Maybe so, or maybe not, but the constitution speaks to the serious nature of convicting an American citizen of treason.
(NaturalNews) Have you noticed the incredible detachment from reality exhibited by the masses these days? The continued operation of modern society, it seems, depends on people making sure they don't acknowledge reality (or try to deal with it). "Denial" is what keeps every sector of civilization humming along: medicine, finance, government, agriculture and more.
The trouble with the denial approach is that eventually the lies collide with reality. Until that day comes, however, happy-go-lucky Americans are merrily enjoying their courtship with self delusion, repeating the following 37 lies to themselves as if they were true:
Lie #1) All FDA-approved medications are safe to consume in any combination, because the FDA protects the public.
Lie #2) Food prices keep going up because inflation is a natural force that can't be halted.
Here is a new chart from Sharelynx showing the correlation of U.S. debt vs. the price of gold.
You'll notice an almost direct correlation between the US debt levels and the price of gold from 2000-2013.
From 2013 through the present, however, that correlation has diverted significantly.
2013 was the year when massive naked short selling of gold began taking place.

“I tell you, freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in — and the West in general — into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”—Osama bin Laden (October 2001), as reported by CNN
What a strange and harrowing road we’ve walked since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties. We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade a freedom-loving people to march in lockstep with a police state.
What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse. Since then, we have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into a semi-permanent state of compliance. The bogeyman’s names and faces change over time—Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and now ISIS—but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security.
Ironically, just a short week after the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we find ourselves commemorating the 227th anniversary of the ratification of our Constitution. Yet while there is much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there has been little to celebrate.
This Appalling Practice Is Only Used in Two Nations—And the US Is One of Them
"The UN has condemned one country for “using extortion, threats of violence” to collect taxes. It then turns a blind eye to another country doing exactly the same thing… but much worse."
During the 60s and 70s one illegal, unconstitutional war tore this nation apart.
Now multiple illegal, endless, unconstitutional wars are commonplace and only a handful of people try to stop them. What happened?
Is it because of the additional 50 years of indoctrination and desensitizing? Was all that outrage expressed during the Vietnam era really a result of the draft? Is this phenomenon another manifestation of embracing a culture of death? What has happened between then and now????
Ben Swann New Video - Truth in Media: Feds Says Cannabis Is Not Medicine While Holding The Patent on Cannabis as MedicineSubmitted by USA 2012 on Tue, 09/16/2014 - 13:00
Published on Sep 16, 2014
For those who believe in marijuana and cannabis freedom, the future has never been brighter. Right now there is an awakening to the benefits of cannabis for medicinal purposes, specifically something called CBD oil. But is the new CBD craze being manipulated by media and politicians? If it weren’t we wouldn’t need to do a show about it.
The first step toward truth is to be informed.
Take Action: View the "Activate" Plan at the end of the story
Ron Paul and Rand Paul agree on a lot, but they don’t agree on what the U.S. should do about the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.
Ron Paul, the former Republican congressman from Texas, tells U.S. News he would “definitely not” vote to give President Barack Obama authority to wage war against the jihadi militants.
Fighting the group, he says, "will just hurt us and it will end when we go bankrupt.”
Rand Paul, the Kentucky senator and possible 2016 Republican presidential candidate, held a non-interventionist stance for much of the Syrian Civil War, but told Fox News Monday he would vote to bless Obama's use of force after the group beheaded two American journalists.
