U.S. Senator calls for a new surtax to fund ISIS ‘war’ as 8 out of 10 Americans think we are losing

Since 2003, Congress has spent over $3 trillion on wars in the Middle East, with little to show for it besides the rise of an Islamic caliphate.  And if more than a decade at war isn't enough for the American public, a U.S. Senator from the state of Delaware wants to create a new surtax on the people to fund an escalation of the 'war' on ISIS, and at a time when 8 out of 10 Americans believe the Obama admin ...

Ontario becomes ground zero for citizens being asked to pay for the debts of their government

$160,000.  That is how much each American 'virtually' owes bondholders to cover the government's nearly $19 trillion in national debt.  And while our taxes are the primary collateral which allows Uncle Sam to borrow from a privately owned central bank, is there a chance sometime in the future where the government may use force, coercion, or even confiscation to pay these obligations that neither you nor I v ...

Court issues ruling that attorney client privilege no longer fully protected

The shocking secret most Americans in our apathetic society fail to realize is that over the past two administrations, all but one of the 10 Amendments in the Bill of Rights have either been usurped, or causally thrown away by the Federal government.  Even our most sacred trusts of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion have been trampled to death under the auspices of minority rights, diversity, and fai ...
