    Cult: Government Is Now The New Religion? Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFPlan.com, A new magazine cover of the Jacobin is striking a nerve after it appears that the magazine is saying the government is now god and our religion, to be worshipped. It sure begs the age-old question: who do you serve? If we are ever to be free, we have to remove our consent. That goes for those who worshipped Trump as the messiah as well (and there were plenty.)  We should have never allowed ourselves […]

    China Caught Importing 'Doctored' & Rebranded Venezuelan Oil To Evade US Sanctions It's no secret that Maduro's Venezuela has long gone to extraordinary lengths to bust through the US oil export blockade and sanctions designed to choke the socialist country. This past summer, and in recent months, Iran emerged as Venezuela's chief trading and sanctions-busing partner, with at one point US authorities seizing and later auctioning off over 1.1 million barrels of fuel taken from Iranian tankers bound for Venezuela. As we and other have noted before, methods often employed […]

    Big Tech, Big Brother, & The End Of Free Speech Authored by Frank Miele via RealClearPolitics.com, In George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” members of the Outer Party of Oceania engage in the Two Minutes Hate ritual against Emmanuel Goldstein, who is supposed to be the enemy of the people but may actually just be a fabricated symbol to distract the people from their real enemy — Big Brother. In Nancy Pelosi’s “Twenty Twenty-One,” members of the Democratic Party engage in the Two Hours Hate against Donald Trump, who is […]

    Biden To Propose 5-Year Extension On Last Major Nuke Treaty With Russia It was no secret that the Russians were waiting out the Trump administration, anticipating that Trump's declared desire to pull out of the New START treaty which limits the number of strategic nuclear weapons maintained by the former Cold War rivals would be a moot point should Biden take the White House. During prior negotiations this past fall, Putin was willing to offer an extension on the landmark nuclear treaty of at least one year without any preconditions ahead […]

    Winter Storm Could Batter Northeast Next Week  Widespread winter weather across the lower 48 states in recent weeks has been limited, but that drought could be over as early as this weekend into next week as a duo of storms could batter parts of the US.  Accuweather meteorologists are closely watching weather disturbances forecasted to bring snow, ice, and a wintry mix across parts of the Midwest and the Northeast.  Snow, ice, and a wintry mix could be seen across Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, DC, Pennsylvania, and New York […]

    The Despicables Authored by Eric Peters via EricPetersAutos.com, One of the nuggets to be mined from the wholesale cancelling of politically unapproved speech by the Tech Oligarchs – soon to be empowered by government oligarchs, if the “kraken” doesn’t somehow prevent it – is how obvious their pathological dishonesty has become. Amazon, Facebook and Twitter have asserted that, as private businesses, they have the right to decide with whom to do business – and not do business with. But do they feel the same way about the right of […]

    Microsoft Patents AI-Chatbots That Imitate Dead People  The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) granted Microsoft one of the most bizarre patents to date: chatbots using deceased people's personal information.  The Independent reports Microsoft is creating an AI-based chatbot based on "images, voice data, social media posts, electronic messages," and other personal information. It's thought that the chatbot would simulate the deceased person's human conversation.  This AI-based chatbot concept is straight out of a Black Mirror episode called "Be Right Back," where a young woman uses an AI-based chatbot to […]
