Joel Miller – Why the gay marriage debate was over in 1950
Hate speech laws are going in all around the world, and progressive activists in the United States want to use these kinds of laws to destroy free speech in America. You see, the truth is that these hate speech laws that are being implemented all over the planet are not just about preventing speech that promotes violence or genocide against a particular group of people. Instead, these laws are written in such a way that anyone that says something that “offends” or “insults” someone else is guilty of “hate speech”. Even if you never intended to offend anyone and you had no idea that your words were insulting, in some countries you can be detained without bail and sentenced to years in prison for such speech. Today, there are highly restrictive hate speech laws in Canada, in Mexico and in virtually every single European nation. The United States is still an exception, but the truth is that our liberties and freedoms are being eroded every single day, and it is only a matter of time until “hate speech laws” are used to take away our freedom of speech too.

The second largest stock market in the entire world is collapsing right in front of our eyes. Since hitting a peak in June, the most important Chinese stock market index has plummeted by well over 20 percent, and more than 3 trillion dollars of “paper wealth” has been wiped out. Of course the Shanghai Composite Index is still way above the level it was sitting at exactly one year ago, but what is so disturbing about this current crash is that it is so similar to what we witnessed just prior to the great financial crisis of 2008 in the United States. From October 2006 to October 2007, the Shanghai Composite Index more than tripled in value. It was the greatest stock market surge in Chinese history. But after hitting a peak, it began to fall dramatically. From October 2007 to October 2008, the Shanghai Composite Index absolutely crashed. In the end, more than two-thirds of all wealth in the market was completely wiped out. You can see all of this on a chart that you can find right here. What makes this so important to U.S. investors is the fact that Chinese stocks started crashing well before U.S. stocks started crashing during the last financial crisis, and now it is happening again. Is this yet another sign that a U.S. stock market crash is imminent? (Read More….)

The biggest news month of our lives – Joseph Farah
Was June 2015 the biggest news month of our generation?
I would argue it was right up there with 9/11 and Pearl Harbor.

Don’t give up on America – David Limbaugh
Leftists are not about live and let live. They are about wholesale control. Their movers and shakers see society as their project, and they can change everything and everyone through government and their domination of the culture. There is no live and let live in their bones.
In view of all this, it is amazing that so many conservatives, traditionalists and Christians are blind to the hostile, aggressive and unquenchable appetite of the leftist movement. It is chilling to me that they don’t realize this trend is going to continue until there is either a cultural or legal confrontation or the left stamps out all dissent.
Tom DeLay: DOJ wants to legalize bestiality, pedophilia
“We’ve already found a secret memo coming out of the Justice Department,” DeLay said. “They’re now going to go after 12 new perversions, things like bestiality, polygamy, having sex with little boys and making that legal. Not only that, but they have a whole list of strategies to go after the churches, the pastors, and any businesses that tries to assert their religious liberty. This is coming and it’s coming like a tidal wave.”
The daily allowance of cash from many ATM machines has already dropped from €60 to €50, purportedly because €20 notes are running out
Greece is sliding into a full-blown national crisis as the final cash reserves of the banking system evaporate by the hour and swathes of industry start to shut down, precipitating the near disintegration of the ruling coalition.
Business leaders have been locked in talks with the Bank of Greece, pleading for the immediate release of emergency liquidity funds (ELA) to cover food imports and pharmaceutical goods before the tourist sector hits a brick wall.
Officials say the central bank will release the funds as soon as Friday, but this is a stop-gap measure at best. “We are on a war footing in this country,” said Yanis Varoufakis, the Greek finance minister.
The daily allowance of cash from many ATMs has already dropped from €60 to €50, purportedly because €20 notes are running out. Large numbers are empty. The financial contagion is spreading fast as petrol stations and small businesses stop accepting credit cards.
Constantine Michalos, head of the Hellenic Chambers of Commerce, said Greek Banks are simply running out of money. “We are reliably informed that the cash reserves of the banks are down to €500m. Anybody who thinks they are going to open again on Tuesday is day-dreaming. The cash would not last an hour,” he said.
“We are in an extremely dangerous situation. Greek companies have been excluded from the electronic transfers of Europe’s Target2 system. The entire Greek business community is unable to import anything, and without raw materials they can’t produce anything,” he said. source
Rocket alert sirens sounded Friday afternoon in southern Israel’s Eshkol Regional Council in light of an apparent single rocket launching.
According to initial indications, there was a possibility that a projectile emanating from the Sinai Peninsula had triggered the alarms. The IDF said it was looking into the incident. No injuries or damage were initially reported.
On Sunday, sirens rang out in the Hof Ashkelon area sending Israelis running for shelter. The IDF said no rockets fell inside Israel and later determined that the sirens had falsely been alarmed.
Sunday’s occurrence comes after multiple recent rocket launchings toward Israel by terrorists in Gaza have broken the relative quiet since last August’s cease-fire ending a 50 day conflict between Israel and Hamas. source

“But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations. … This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.” —John Adams (1813)

Ownership of our sugar or food addiction is a huge part of the process of not only weight loss, but total transformation and getting a REAL life. If there is one pivotal moment in our healthy living LIFEstyle journey, it is the moment we own our issue. I don’t watch much television, but I do watch a few shows I DVR. Recently I watched two shows that depicted polar opposite reactions to their weight issues.
On one show two individuals went all out and reached their goals six months early. One lost 123 pounds and the other over 247 pounds. Both ended up fit and healthy. On the other show, a woman had weight loss surgery and lost 150 pounds, but could never get past that. She was stuck weighing over 520 pounds and in danger of death. What was the difference? Two owned their issue and changed. The other never owned her issue. She had decided she could eat what she wanted, just less at one time, and not move. Her weight loss all happened in the hospital. Outside the hospital her weight never moved. FULL REPORT

|“Strange” spike in shark attacks puzzles experts
Posted: 03 Jul 2015 07:13 AM PDT
Andrew Costello was attacked by a shark Wednesday in North Carolina, becoming the eleventh person to be bitten by a shark since mid-May. Costello, 67, suffered wounds to his rib cage, lower leg and hip. He was waist deep about 30 feet offshore near Ocracoke Island when the 6 to 7 foot shark pulled him under. Costello, the former editor of the Boston Herald, was airlifted to an area hospital, where he is listed as being in good condition.
The recent spate of shark attacks has left many beachgoers nervous. Dr. Samuel Gruber, the director of the Bimini SharkLab research facility in the Bahamas, says the spike in attacks suggests something strange is going on. “The trend is normally zero or one attack in that area in any one year,” said Gruber. Theories as to why this is happening range from time of day, to bait fishing, sea turtle migration, lunar cycles and global warming. FULL REPORT

|Officials Warn of ‘Lone Wolf’ Attacks on July 4 Holiday
Posted: 03 Jul 2015 07:04 AM PDT
Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, American counterterrorism officials have increased security at national landmarks and large public events ahead of major holidays or significant anniversaries, and issued bulletins calling for increased vigilance by the public. But this Fourth of July weekend has spawned particularly strong warnings about a potential attack as the federal authorities and national security experts say the United States is more susceptible now because of tactics chosen for recent terrorist strikes by the Islamic State.
Officials cite an increased effort by the Islamic State to galvanize its sympathizers in the United States and elsewhere since Memorial Day and during this Ramadan season to carry out acts of violence on their own — so-called lone-wolf attacks. Those potential plots by individuals are harder for the authorities to detect and disrupt, senior American officials say, and have led the F.B.I. to put more Americans under investigation for suspected ties to terrorist groups than at any point since Sept. 11.

|Obama Authorizes 13 Tons Of Gold Released To Iran As Sanctions Are Stopped
Posted: 02 Jul 2015 08:19 PM PDT
IRANIAN OFFICIALS SAID MONDAY THAT THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC’S CENTRAL BANK HAS SUCCESSFULLY REPATRIATED 13 TONS OF GOLD AS PART OF A PACKAGE OF SANCTIONS RELIEF PROVIDED TO IRAN BY U.S. AND WESTERN POWERS.
EDITOR’S NOTE: After all this time and all the talk, US president Barack Obama and the United States have failed and are failing to stop Iran from obtaining both nuclear power and weaponry. Obama has ordered sanctions, the only thing really preventing a nuclear Iran, to be stopped, and has rewarded the terror-supporting rogue nation by releasing 13 tons of gold back to them. Mission Accomplished.
The gold was transferred to Iran by the government of South Africa, which had been holding onto the assets due to harsh sanctions meant to pressure Tehran to rein in its rogue nuclear program. The gold appears to have been released as part of a sanctions relief package that will have awarded Iran nearly $12 billion in unfrozen cash assets by the time negotiations wrap up next week.

|Michigan government seizes kids to punish family for off-grid camping trip
Posted: 02 Jul 2015 07:59 PM PDT
Is there a concerted effort on the part of authorities on the state and federal level to find ways to criminalize individual preparedness and any exercise of liberty? Some Americans might think so after the nightmare a Michigan family has endured, and all for the crime of camping. According to various reports, the family had their six children seized by Michigan state officials after they learned that the kids (and the adults) were living in tents.
The experience began for Christopher and Antonia Hernandez May 19 when Otsego County Sheriff deputies and an official from the state’s Children’s Protective Services initially confiscated the children; it ended June 10 when the kids were returned to their parents following a court victory in which the Hernandez’s successfully argued that their kids are eligible for enrollment in the Tlingit Native American Tribe. “The federal Indian Child Welfare Act makes it more difficult for state officials to separate Native American families. Michigan has a similar state law,” said a report at Off the Grid News. FULL REPORT

|Millennial Republicans Urge GOP to Support “Gay Marriage”, Time to get with the Times
Posted: 02 Jul 2015 07:53 PM PDT
Millennials in the Republican Party are telling their GOP elders to shape up or be prepared to ship out – gay marriage isn’t going anywhere and they need to embrace the issue or face voter backlash. “This issue is not going away – it’s not a fad,” said S.E. Cupp, a self-described conservative who contributes to CNN. She gave a near-tearful commentary on the heels of the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, praising the decision as a boon for America.
“I didn’t get emotional because of the politics,” she said, the Hill reported. “It’s about millennials watching their friends come out, this is about parents who have seen their gay teens commit suicide. … This is personal for people.” Now those of the millennial generation – defined as between the ages of 18 and 34 – who also tout conservative politics are pressing their Republican colleagues to back gay marriage.

|Final order! Christian bakers must pay $135,000
Posted: 02 Jul 2015 07:41 PM PDT
The Christian owners of a former bakery were officially ordered Thursday by the Oregon labor commissioner to pay $135,000 in fines to a lesbian couple after the bakers declined to bake a wedding cake for the couple due to their religious beliefs. The ruling, issued by Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian, upheld an earlier finding by administrative judge Alan McCullough, who determined that Sweet Cakes owners Aaron and Melissa Klein had discriminated against the women based on their sexual orientation.
The Kleins said their Christian beliefs against same-sex marriage had prevented them from complying with the cake request. The Kleins were forced to close their storefront in Gresham, a suburb of Portland, Oregon, in 2013 shortly after the lesbian couple filed a civil rights complaint against them. At that time, same-sex marriage still wasn’t legal in Oregon. The lesbian couple will receive the funds for “emotional, mental, and physical suffering.” FULL REPORT

Nathan Collier said he was inspired by the recent Supreme Court decision that made marriage equal. He said he was particularly struck by the words of dissenting Chief Justice John Roberts who claimed giving gay couples the right to marry, might inspire polygamy.

“Right now we’re waiting for an answer,” Mr Collier told The Independent. “I have two wives because I love two women and I want my second wife to have the same legal rights and protection as my first.”He added: “Most people are not us.
