Nearly 2,000 Dead In Myanmar Amid Military-Led Ethnic Cleansing Of Rohingya

The horrific ethnic cleansing and genocide being perpetrated against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar by military and paramilitary forces left at least 400 dead following the most recent attacks. The total number killed has been estimated to be nearly 2,000, with some Rohingya activists claiming an even higher death toll.

Aung Su Kyi, a Nobel Prize laureate and de facto leader of Myanmar, has been criticized for being morally irresponsible in regards to responding to attacks against the Rohingya population, as well as accused of “legitimizing genocide.”

Trey Gowdy Promises DOJ and FBI Will Be Hit With ‘Full Arsenal’ if They Ignore Subpoenas

Trey Gowdy Promises DOJ and FBI Will Be Hit With ‘Full Arsenal’ if They Ignore Subpoenas

House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has a serious message for the Department of Justice and FBI: If they do not comply with subpoenas, they will be hit with “the full panoply of constitutional weapons” to get the documents they are demanding to see relating to FISA court abuse, which leads to the Russia probe, along with the hiding of incriminating Strzok-Page texts.

A couple of recent articles have once more made the case, at least implicitly, for political decentralization as the only viable path which will begin to solve the seemingly insurmountable political, economic, and social crises which the Western world now faces.

 

In the last few months, over 3,000 millionaires have fled the hopelessly corrupt and bankrupt state of Illinois.  When asked, 47% of Illinoisans would like to leave the state which, over the last decade, has seen over a half million of its residents flee.  Naturally, this exodus has exacerbated the Land of Lincoln’s financial straits to catastrophic levels.*

AMA Says Take Your Meds While Doctors Take Your Guns

AMA Says Take Your Meds While Doctors Take Your Guns

For some reason, the American Medical Association — which was founded to promote the American medical community — wants to wade into one of the premier political battles of our day: Gun control.

The AMA has shifted at least some of its attention recently away from pushing Big Pharma meds that kill more than 100,000 Americans a year to jumping on the gun confiscation bandwagon pushed by the Marxist Left.

As reported by TownHall, the organization last week approved a wide-ranging list of “common sense” gun control demands that include banning the sale of “all assault-type weapons, bump stocks and related devices, high-capacity magazines, and armor piercing bullets.”
