Matt Drudge quotes:

“I can’t be controlled! I cannot be controlled! There are no interests here, but what I see as the world events, period! That is the truth of the situation.”

” I have remained completely independent from all of them. All of them! I am not influenced by any of them. I need no traffic from Google. I don’t care if I get one traffic referral from Google, or Bing, or Yahoo, or any of these others. It’s always been that way. Now, if you think of that set up, how rare that is….”

“Why aren’t we seeing Hillary’s lovers? Excuse me. Why aren’t we seeing Hillary’s lovers? Where is the cover-up on this? So many issues that are suppressed on a daily basis. So, that’s what I try to do every morning.”

 

“Well, I don’t know, because this is another thing. The measurements that we have, this is another bogus thing. Yesterday they released on the A.P.A Wire, Twitter followers. Hillary is the queen of the Twitters with 4.9 million. They don’t say how many are fake. They don’t know how many there are.”

Well, the A.P. did not do that, Alex. So, this whole thing, this whole socials, these socials. You know, Beats One Music, which I’m obsessed with, which has been launched on Apple, uhh, which is probably one of the best things they’ve done since Steve Jobs died. One radio station. Interesting. They don’t know how many listeners they have. I heard some streams, they were down to five thousand an hour. This whole social media stuff is bogus. Facebook, we have two billions users? This is garbage! This is designed to demoralize the individual. I’ll never have two billion followers! This Internet is what you make of it.”

“…you’ve gotta be the greatest you can be now. Now. Before this country is so completely altered and we’re left with Hillary’s brain, in the Oval Office, in a jar. Because that’s what we’re getting. She’s old and she’s sick! She’s not a contender! They’re making her a contender with these propped-up Saturday Night Live things! It’s like a head on a stick! And, then on the Today Show with gun three. A head on a stick! She is not a viable, vibrant leader for this country of three hundred, including the illegals, three hundred and eighty million Americans! So, the media is trying to put us to sleep. You’re not letting ’em, Alex…”

I’m just warning this country that, yes, don’t get into this false sense that you are an individual when you’re on Facebook. No. You’re Not. You’re a pawn in their scheme.”

 (commenting on political elite hypocrites calling for a repeal of the second amendment) “Well, because they’re all armed themselves, or they all have that security around them themselves. They don’t have to worry about it. I challenge Hillary; take away your Secret Service. Take it away now! Take away your Secret Service! Dismiss them! Have no security around you. Have no guns around you, Hillary. I dare you! I dare you! Obama, same thing. Drop your guns, Obama! Take your Secret Service away, Obama. Take it all away! Leave the White House unguarded, Obama. Let everybody know there’s no guns on the White House grounds, Obama. You know what would happen in 30 seconds? Both of those people would no longer be on planet Earth. So, they’re asking us to drop our guns, and to drop our security measures or…Or what!? So, this thing is very real, and I don’t see how it’s being taken seriously, except for the sick voter. You can’t underestimate the sickness of the American people right now. They’re really sick. And, that’s, I’m more angry at the sick Americans than I am at Obama or Hillary. I’m really angry at the sick Americans.”

Donald Trump “THANK YOU” Rally

President-Elect Donald Trump:

“You hear a lot of talk about how we are becoming a globalized world. But, the relationships that people value, in this country, are local: family, city, state, country. They’re local. We’ll compete in the world. We want to compete in the world. But, we are going to compete in the world where it is a two-way road not a one-way road. The advantages are going to come back to our country, and they haven’t for many, many years. “

“There is no global anthem, no global currency, no certificate of global citizenship. We pledge allegiance to one flag, and that flag is the American flag. From now on, it’s going to be America first. OK? America first. We’re going to put ourselves first.”

 

 

 

 

Ben Garrison: Taking a Bite Out of Tyranny!

 

Ben Garrison is a libertarian political cartoon artist known for creating illustrations about United States political corruption  and conspiracies.

Ben Garrison quotes:

 “I am for freedom and the Constitution.

The harder I’ve worked, the more big government has taken…”

“The system is an inverted horn of plenty. Plenty of money is constantly shoveled in for politicians. They can never get enough. Not only will they never reign in their spending, they will continue to vote themselves raises, huge pay packages, benefits and pensions for life–far in excess of anything the average Joe will ever get. In essence, those who run the government have voted and elevated themselves to a form of nobility. They feather their own nests and the nests of those who get them elected in the first place–the major corporations and banks that constitute a crony capitalist shadow government. We are seeing a new form of serfdom developing. The vast majority of Americans will pay more taxes, face more government control and see freedoms dwindle as they get poorer. The benefits that are promised to us certainly won’t be there. It’s a mathematical impossibility.”

Solar Powered Plane Flies Around The World

SOLAR IMPULSE 2  –  The Airplane of Perpetual Endurance

Solar Impulse is not the first solar airplane, but it is the first to fly day and night, without any fuel, only using energy stored in its batteries. It is also the first to have achieved an oceanic crossing: 5 days and nights from Nagoya, Japan, to Kalaeloa, Hawaii. Behind Solar Impulse’s achievements, there is always the same goal: show that if an airplane can fly several days and nights in a row with no fuel, then clean technologies can be used on the ground to reduce our energy consumption, and create profit and jobs.

Filippo Brunelleschi: I built that

Via: nationalgeographic.com

Soaring to a height of 374 feet, the dome of Santa Maria del Fiore is a wonder of ingenuity nearly six centuries after its construction. Its grandeur and artistry were meant to outshine those of any other structure in early Renaissance Italy, elevating Florence over rival cities. Though many believed it was too big and ambitious to build, architect Filippo Brunelleschi succeeded, using methods that experts don’t fully understand even today.

Elbert Guillory: “Why I Am a Republican”

 

Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory (R-Opelousas) explains why he recently switched from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party.

 

 

Transcript:

“Hello, my name is Elbert Lee Guillory, and I’m the senator for the twenty-fourth district right here in beautiful Louisiana. Recently I made what many are referring to as a ‘bold decision’ to switch my party affiliation to the Republican Party. I wanted to take a moment to explain why I became a Republican, and also to explain why I don’t think it was a bold decision at all. It is the right decision — not only for me — but for all my brothers and sisters in the black community.

 

 

You see, in recent history the Democrat Party has created the illusion that their agenda and their policies are what’s best for black people. Somehow it’s been forgotten that the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist movement with one simple creed: that slavery is a violation of the rights of man.

Frederick Douglass called Republicans the ‘Party of freedom and progress,’ and the first Republican president was Abraham Lincoln, the author of the Emancipation Proclamation. It was the Republicans in Congress who authored the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments giving former slaves citizenship, voting rights, and due process of law.

The Democrats on the other hand were the Party of Jim Crow. It was Democrats who defended the rights of slave owners. It was the Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who championed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, but it was Democrats in the Senate who filibustered the bill.

You see, at the heart of liberalism is the idea that only a great and powerful big government can be the benefactor of social justice for all Americans. But the left is only concerned with one thing — control. And they disguise this control as charity. Programs such as welfare, food stamps, these programs aren’t designed to lift black Americans out of poverty, they were always intended as a mechanism for politicians to control black the black community.

The idea that blacks, or anyone for that matter, need the the government to get ahead in life is despicable. And even more important, this idea is a failure. Our communities are just as poor as they’ve  always been. Our schools continue to fail children. Our prisons are filled with young black men who should be at home being fathers. Our self-initiative and our self-reliance have been sacrificed in exchange for allegiance to our overseers who control us by making us dependent on them.

Sometimes I wonder if the word freedom is tossed around so frequently in our society that it has become a cliché.

The idea of freedom is complex and it is all-encompassing. It’s the idea that the economy must remain free of government persuasion. It’s the idea that the press must operate without government intrusion. And it’s the idea that the emails and phone records of Americans should remain free from government search and seizure. It’s the idea that parents must be the decision makers in regards to their children’s education — not some government bureaucrat.

But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness free from government dependence and free from government control. Because to be truly free is to be reliant on no one other than the author of our destiny. These are the ideas at the core of the Republican Party, and it is why I am a Republican.

So my brothers and sisters of the American community, please join with me today in abandoning the government plantation and the Party of disappointment. So that we may all echo the words of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last.’

 

 

 

The Natural Law as a Restraint Against Tyranny: Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

 

“Some men say the earth is flat. 
Some men say the earth is round. 
But if it is flat, could Parliament make it round? 
And if it round, could the kings command flatten it?” – quote from Sir Thomas More’s treason case under Henry VIII

Judge Andrew P. Napolitano:

“Natural Rights can be summarized in four words: the presumption of liberty. This means we are self-directed. We make our own choices.”

 “I do have something to preserve — my dignity and my right to be left alone, the quintessential American right.”

“The right to defend yourself, the right to keep and bear arms does not protect your right to shoot deer. It protects your right to shoot at the government when it is taken over by tyrants”

Vitamin C-Infused Showers: Do They Work?

Via: YouTube

There’s been a lot of talk about vitamin C-enriched showers, many touting them as being beneficial in the arenas of both beauty and health as they neutralize the chlorine in water.

Leonardo DiCaprio reportedly had them installed in his new Greenwich Village home and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas features them in what they call their Stay Well rooms.

They’re actually not as expensive as their clientele would imply, with filters and showerheads available for around 40 to 100 dollars.

The jury is still out, however, on if they’re even worth that much.

 


 

 

 

Experts have advised that the showers don’t really work as well as people think they do.

Yes, from a strictly scientific standpoint, vitamin C does in fact nullify chlorine.

The thing with the shower system is that the amount of time the vitamin is in contact with the water isn’t likely enough to make that happen.
