The elite think the people are stupid

How big is Hillary's basket?

State actor attempts to influence election

People who live in glasshouses

John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, has called for Syria and Russia to be investigated for war crimes. The man clearly does, as he suggested at an earlier United Nations' meeting, live in a parallel universe.   The so called war crimes of...

What's the definition of insanity again?

Ahar al Sham is an Islamic terrorist group, according to the judgement of a German court. This is obvious to anyone who has been paying attention. Well, when I say anyone, I am, of course, excluding the clever people in Washington. As far as...
