Giant 18 feet oarfish washes up dead in Peru just 24 hours before the dangerous M7.2 earthquake in Mexico
A giant oarfish washed ashore on the beach of Los Yuyales in Peru around 1:30pm on February 15, 2018, so just 24 hours before a very powerful earthquake of 7.2-magnitude hit Mexico on February 16, 2018. Finding a giant oarfish washed up on the beach is a rare occurrence, since the fish is a deepwater […]
WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: THE GREAT GUN CONTROL DEBATE RAGES…”The typical Chicago weekend shooting toll is 15 to 20 dead, plus 30 to 50 wounded. I repeat- this happens every weekend.”

There is only one issue in America this week: the mass murder at the Florida high school carried out by Nikolas Cruz. It was shocking. It was tragic. Unfortunately you’re also only hearing one side of the argument. This tragic mass murder is all liberals can think about because a gun was used to commit such a heinous act.
We’ve heard all week how guns kill, and we need more gun control, and we must ban the specific kind of rifle used in this terrible slaughter. But no one has mentioned that as terrible as it is to see 17 young lives snuffed out on one day, in one place…this same death toll and carnage happens EVERY WEEKEND in Chicago.
The typical Chicago weekend shooting toll is 15 to 20 dead, plus 30 to 50 wounded. I repeat- this happens every weekend. Almost every victim is young- just like those poor high school kids. Almost every victim is black. The city is run 100% by Democrats. It has the strictest gun control (more…)
(SP) — Thirteen Russian nationals allegedly involved in an information warfare operation to interfere in the 2016 presidential election were indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The indictment [PDF] claims the Internet Research Agency engaged in a conspiracy from 2014 to the present that was funded by Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin and companies he controlled, including Concord Management […]Source: Mueller Indictment Part of Information Warfare Cycle Between US and Russia
The mixed messages from yesterday’s “shocking” indictments of some Russian trolls (while The FBI was busily ignoring potential mass murderers in Florida) need some context to calm the chaotic “told you so” narrative spewing from every orifice of every side in this debacle.
Hillary Clinton spent 53 times more money per month than Russians seeking to influence the 2016 presidential election.
As The Daily Caller’s Amber Athey details, according to reports, the monthly Russian budget for the operation to meddle in the election was $1.2 million. As Peter Hamby pointed out on Twitter, Clinton and supporting PAC Priorities USA spent approximately $800 million in 2016.
Not to diminish how awful this is, but $1.2 million is hardly mindblowing. Hillary Clinton + Priorities USA spent ~$800 million in 2016. https://t.co/CWpV7u8iip

That means Clinton and her PAC spent about $66 million a month in 2016, a whopping 53 times more money than Russia’s $1.25 million monthly budget.
It’s also worth nothing that not all of the money spent (more…)

Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.) on Friday praised Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D., Calif.) proposed assault weapons ban for its lengthy definition of “assault weapon.”
Nelson has called for new gun control measures in the aftermath of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., in which 17 were killed. The gunman used an AR-15 rifle, which Nelson wants to ban along with a host of guns that meet the definition of “assault weapon” in Feinstein’s bill.
“Are there any draft bills or anything out there right now that you think might get a second look at this point?” a reporter asked.
“Yes, I’m a co-sponsor of all of them. One of them, for example, is Senator Feinstein’s bill—there are a number of us sponsoring it—that says that you cannot legally purchase an assault weapon, and then it goes on for 100 pages to define what is an assault weapon and what is not an assault weapon,” Nelson said.
He praised Feinstein’s proposal for targeting (more…)
The purpose of the law is not to stop crime, it’s to point out who the criminals are.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) responded quickly after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to gun grabbing politicians who think that writing more illegal, unconstitutional laws to restrict the rights of gun owners will stop mass killings.
In an interview Thursday morning with Fox News host Bill Hemmer, Gowdy issued a statement that even Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has agreed with.
Take a look.
Gowdy was asked what he would say to Americans who claim that Congress doesn’t act on things like mental health or guns.
“The first thing I would say to this generation of children is how sorry I am you have witnessed school shootings, mall shootings, concert shootings,” Gowdy began. “There is no place that seems safe in our society.”
“So, as devastating as the loss of life is, the loss of innocence for this generation of children, I don’t know anyone who would not pass a bill today that would (more…)

To the markets, it has become more vexing than the volocaust. After all, last Monday’s violent move – which saw the VIX surge by the most on record and send the market into a sharp, brief correction – was not only predicted (if only by a handful) but the reasons behind the VIXplosion are largely understood, as inverse VIX ETFs experienced the equivalent of a terminal margin call, prompting the “largest VIX buy order in history.”
Meanwhile, Wall Street has been scratching its head to explain the recent, far more bizarre moves across asset classes – stocks, yields and the dollar – which first Citi, and then Deutsche Bank’s chief FX strategist, admitted made no sense.
As a reminder, here was Citi lashing out on Valentine’s Day at the concurrent plunge in bonds and the USD:
So somehow we have embraced the theme that was with us through January. On a day when inflation beats in the US (incidentally retail sales missed): stocks are up, yields are up and the USD lower does not add up.
Then on (more…)

One of the deadliest school shootings in American history took place this week in Parkland, Florida and the suspected gunman has since confessed to this most heinous act. As details unfold, however, the mainstream media is failing to ask the hard questions which need to be answered.
While the media frantically attempts to use Nikolas Cruz to push their political agenda, bombshell revelations are being ignored, perhaps deliberately.
While corporate media continues to use this incident to ram divide down society’s throat and push for gun confiscation, those of us in the alternative media world are asking questions that matter. The Free Thought Project has compiled a list of five major details about the shooting that took place Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that the media is conveniently choosing to ignore.
5. CRUZ WAS REPORTEDLY TAKING ANTIDEPRESSANTS
In a likely attempt to protect their corporate sponsors in the pharmaceutical industry, the fact that Cruz’s family told reporters that he was on medication for depression has managed to remain all but a blip in the mainstream.
