    The Breakdown of Family and Religion Explains France’s Social Unrest

    As France is gripped by civil disorder, many commentators identify, quite correctly, as the culprit the outsized burden that France’s bloated welfare state places on its citizens.

    According a recent report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the highest tax burden in the industrialized world is in France—46.1 percent of gross domestic product.

    In the United States, it is 27 percent, which includes taxes paid at all levels of government—federal, state, and local.

    Welfare state spending in France is 32 percent of GDP, almost double that of the U.S., meaning that $1 out of $3 generated by the French economy is captured by the government and redistributed into social/welfare spending. READ MORE...

  • Government Charity: Unconstitutional & Unlawful, Part 1

    Government Charity: Unconstitutional & Unlawful, Part 1

    Americans watch our federal government spend and spend and spend.  Not only paying out tax dollar funded charity to Americans, US corporations, and foreign countries, but now even so-called conservative politicians are claiming “we have an obligation” to give taxpayer dollars to non-citizens here in the United States and even in Mexico. This is out of control, forced charity. Government agents giving money taken from Americans by the force of government is the very epitome of over-grown, uncontrollable, bloated government.

    Largest Earthquake In 45 Years Hits Tennessee – Is The “Deep Underground Scar” In The Center Of The United States Awakening?

    Large earthquakes aren’t supposed to happen in Tennessee.  On Wednesday, the largest earthquake in 45 years hit eastern Tennessee, and it made headlines all over the nation.  The magnitude 4.4 quake was so powerful that it was felt in portions of Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Kentucky.  Significant shaking was even felt as far away as Atlanta, and that was highly unusual.  The original earthquake was rapidly followed by a magnitude 3.0 aftershock, and subsequently, there were several other noteworthy aftershocks.  We live at a time when earthquakes are increasing in size and frequency, and many are concerned about what this may mean for our future.  The recent earthquakes in Alaska were a shock, but at least they made sense since much of the coastline of Alaska sits directly along the Ring of Fire.  But eastern Tennessee is not an area that has traditionally been prone to quakes.  Could it be possible that the “seismic scar” that was created when the North American continent was formed is beginning to reawaken?

    US Must Curb China, Russia Influence in Africa

    The United States must revamp policies toward Africa on improving trade, fighting terrorism, and providing financial assistance to stave off the growing influence of China and Russia on the continent, White House national security adviser John Bolton said.

    “Great power competitors, namely China and Russia, are rapidly expanding their financial and political influence across Africa,” Bolton said Thursday in an address at The Heritage Foundation in Washington. “They are deliberately and aggressively targeting their investments in the region to gain a competitive advantage over the United States.” READ MORE...

  • Broad Gun Control Restrictions Are Not the Answer. Just Look at These Facts.

    Broad Gun Control Restrictions Are Not the Answer. Just Look at These Facts.

    We all know the script by now: A mass public shooting occurs. Grief and anger ensue. Calls for stricter gun laws soon follow.

    Given how incredibly upsetting these crimes are, and how deeply they shake their communities—and the nation itself—such calls are perfectly understandable. If we’re truly serious, however, about reducing gun violence rates and increasing personal safety, we must ensure that policy decisions are made with an eye toward facts and reality, not panic and outrage.

    The facts tell us that most commonly proposed gun control measures are already ineffective at preventing mass public shootings in states where they are currently implemented, and that they will continue to be ineffective at preventing future tragedies. READ MORE...

    Federal Judge: Christian Organizations Don’t Have To Comply With Obamacare Birth Control Mandate

    Due to the failure of Republicans over the last two years to do what they said they would do and repeal Obamacare, seeking to make their own brand of socialized healthcare, we are still dealing with quite a bit of the unconstitutional, pretended legislation that was rammed down the throats of Americans.  However, a federal judge in Colorado just gave a major win to Christians groups fighting against the unlawful mandate that they provide birth control.

    Judge Philip A. Brimmer of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado ruled in favor of the plaintiffs against the government and ordered that there be imposed a permanent injunction against the government on the matter of the organizations being forced to provide birth control to employees.
