15 Flashpoints Which Could Produce A “Perfect Storm” During The 2nd Half Of 2018

Events are beginning to greatly accelerate, and many believe that the ingredients for a “perfect storm” are starting to come together as we enter the second half of 2018. Other than the continual drama surrounding the Trump presidency, things have been quite calm for the past couple of years. We have been enjoying a time of peace, safety and relative economic prosperity that a lot of Americans have begun to take for granted. But great trouble has been brewing under the surface, and many are wondering if we are about to reach a major turning point. Our planet is being shaken physically, emotionally and financially, and it isn’t going to take much to push us over the edge. The following are 15 flashpoints which could create world changing events during the 2nd half of 2018… (Read More...)

Is The Left Going To Try To Use Brett Kavanaugh’s Old Credit Card Debts To Derail His Nomination To The Supreme Court?

In a way, I feel very sorry for Brett Kavanaugh right now.  This Senate confirmation process is going to be like going to a proctologist every single day for weeks on end.  Investigators are going to go over everything that he has ever done with a fine-toothed comb, and anything that is even remotely scandalous is going to brought out for the entire world to see.  In fact, the Washington Post is already running with a story about Kavanaugh’s past debts.  Federal employees such as Kavanaugh have financial disclosure forms that they are required to file, and although those forms do not reveal everything, they reveal enough to potentially get Kavanaugh into trouble.

An 11-Year-Old Girl With Terminal Stage Four Bone Cancer Was Just Named Prom Queen At A School In Ohio

This is one of the saddest, yet happiest, stories that I have written about in a long time.  Only about 12,000 people live in the little town of Monroe, Ohio but a remarkable 11-year-old girl that lives there is capturing hearts all over the nation.  Madison “Maddie” Smallwood has been battling bone cancer for several years, and the long-term prognosis does not look promising.  Facing that kind of challenge would be way too much for many young girls her age, but not for Madison.  She has decided that she is going to live life to the fullest no matter how long she has.  So she has made a “bucket list” and is trying to complete as many items on it as she can while she still has time.  And no matter how her story ultimately plays out, she will always be remembered as a warrior that was an inspiration to millions of Americans.

Liberals Are Freaking Out About The Nomination Of Brett Kavanaugh, But It Is Conservatives That Should Be Concerned

The weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth has begun on the left, but the truth is that Donald Trump could have nominated someone far more conservative on Monday night.  Over the next several months there will be endless protests in Washington D.C. as liberals moan and groan about “the end of our freedoms”, and Brett Kavanaugh will be relentlessly portrayed as a conservative devil by the mainstream media.  And even though NBC News is insisting that Kavanaugh “would make the high court solidly conservative” if he is confirmed, the reality of the matter is that there are some pretty good reasons why conservatives should be deeply concerned about this pick.  Just because a Republican president nominates someone to the Supreme Court does not mean that individual will make a good judge.  For example, Ronald Reagan nominated Anthony Kennedy in 1987, and he turned out to be a complete and utter disaster.  If Reagan had nominated someone different, the entire modern history of the U.S. Supreme Court could have been completely different.  With the Court still so divided, the stakes are incredibly high, and we must not get another Kennedy.  So it is troubling that Brett Kavanaugh clerked for Kennedy and has always had nothing but good things to say about him.  Anyone that would look to Justice Kennedy as any sort of a role model is definitely not fit for a seat on the highest court in the land.

What Can We Expect During The “Summer Of Rage”? Protests, Violence, Confrontations And Crazy Leftists…

All of the anger that has been building up on the left is about to boil over onto the streets of America.  Actually, to be more accurate, it has already started.  Last weekend, the streets of Portland, Oregon were filled with violence as radical progressives and Trump supporters fought tooth and nail.  And as I wrote about yesterday, Michael Moore and other leftist leaders are calling on progressives to “rise up” and to “put their lives on the line” to defend this country against “fascists” like Donald Trump.  The Senate confirmation hearings for Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court will be a flashpoint which will focus much of the energy on Washington D.C., but the truth is that we are going to see protests, violence and confrontations all over the nation during this “summer of rage”.   Recent polls have shown that many Americans anticipate that violence is on the horizon, and that is precisely what they are going to get.

Progressives Scramble To Block Potential Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett Because She Is A Committed Christian

There is a lot of buzz that Amy Coney Barrett is going to be President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, and that is causing many progressives to totally freak out. The reason that they are freaking out doesn’t have anything to do with her credentials. In fact, as you will see below, Barrett is exceptionally qualified to be on the Supreme Court. She is sharp, intelligent and has a sterling reputation. But the left is already throwing a massive temper tantrum even though she isn’t the nominee yet for one very simple reason. Amy Coney Barrett is a committed Christian, and progressives are deathly afraid that her Christian values will influence her decisions on social issues. (Read More...)

The New Cold War: Russia, China And The United States Are Feverishly Preparing For Nuclear Conflict

While most of the world is focused on the World Cup and other trivial pursuits, the three global superpowers are busy jockeying for nuclear superiority.  Historians will debate the extent to which the first Cold War ever really ended, but everyone pretty much agrees that a new Cold War has now begun.  Russia, China and the United States are all racing to develop the next generation of nuclear weapons and delivery systems, and at this moment it is unclear who will ultimately come out on top in this arms race.  In Russia, nearly the entire nation is united behind the push to modernize the Russian strategic nuclear arsenal, but the United States is a deeply divided society today, and most of the population believes other priorities are far more important than developing new weapons.  Of course the United States started out with an edge in this new arms race, but now Russia and China have been working extremely hard to eliminate that edge, and to a large degree they have succeeded.

1000s Of People In Sweden Are Willingly Microchipping Their Own Hands, And It Is Part Of The “Transhuman” Movement That Is Sweeping The Globe

The future is coming, and it is going to look very strange. In the past, many authors had raised the possibility of tyrannical governments forcibly microchipping their own populations someday, but what if most of humanity actually embraces this new technology enthusiastically? Today, thousands of people in Sweden are eagerly having microchips inserted into their own hands, and it is rapidly becoming a natural part of society. Even in the United States, at one time there was great resistance to the idea of microchipping our pets, but now it is almost universally accepted. Personal microchips are being promoted as a way to make routine tasks faster, easier and more convenient, and Swedish “biohackers” are quite thrilled to be on the cutting edge of this new trend(Read More...)

The Best Places To Live In All 50 U.S. States

We live at a time when Americans are packing up and moving with increasing frequency. Some are moving for new opportunities, some are moving in anticipation of what is coming, and others are moving just because they are bored. As the publisher of The Economic Collapse Blog and The Most Important News, I am frequently asked to give my opinion about a potential move. Of course I often don’t know what to say, because often factors that I don’t fully understand are involved in the decision. For example, someone may be moving somewhere truly horrible for a wonderful new job, or complex family relationships are precipitating a move. But there are some general principles that I share with people, and I will be sharing some of them with you in this article. (Read More...)
