NYT Thomas Friedman Interviews MbS in Saudi Arabia…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 24 35 2017 01:35:09 GMT There’s an interesting interview within the New York Times written by Thomas Friedman who interviews Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman about the current changes taking place within Saudi Arabia and MbS’s intense drive to modernize and engage. The article is well worth reading. CTH would be remiss if we didn’t draw attention to the level of jaw’dropping weasel linguistics that Friedman uses to jump on the MbS bandwagon. If you have never read Friedman’s interviews of President Obama –EXAMPLE HERE– you might not see it. However, if you have watched the decade of fawning idolatry expressed by Friedman toward the Chicago lightbringer

A Time for War

American Thinker, by David Prentice Posted By: magnante- Fri, 24 43 2017 01:43:16 GMT “To everything, there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.” That’s the beginning of a famous bible verse.

But one thing for

Cornyn Bill Would Nix Pay for Federal Overseers Who Don´t Report to Gun Background Check System

PJ Media, by Karl Herchenroeder Posted By: Hazymac- Fri, 24 54 2017 01:54:52 GMT WASHINGTON – Following a mass shooting that killed 26 at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, Sen. John Cornyn (R’Texas) introduced legislation last week that would penalize political appointees who fail to meet the standards of the FBI’s criminal background check system, among other reforms. The 26’year’old gunmen, Devin Patrick Kelley, had previously been discharged from the Air Force for bad behavior. His domestic violence conviction in military court should have disqualified him from buying a semi’automatic rifle he used to murder churchgoers, but the FBI never received proper records from the Air Force. “For years agencies and states haven’t complied with

NFL learns there´s No Free Lunch

Donsurber.com, by Don Surber Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 24 04 2017 02:04:39 GMT Let us cut to the chase: the NFL owns the players´ protest because not only has the league failed to hold players accountable, its owners joined in the anti’American protest. Well, virtue signaling has a price. Americans are about to pull tax breaks that the league enjoys. I want to make clear exactly what this protest is about. Colin Kaepernick said: “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the

REPORT: Trump Is Right. Chinese Car Makers Are Hosing America & It Must Stop Now

DCWhispers, by Staff Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 24 15 2017 02:15:51 GMT POTUS Trump speaks simple truths the Establishment Media chooses to ignore. These are truths that concern real jobs for real Americans that would help to lift up a struggling Middle Class. One of those truths is how China has economically raped the United States for decades costing millions of jobs, and likely trillions in economic growth.
