The Olympics in London won’t just be a display of the world’s most gifted athletes – but also of the British military

1 post / 0 new

Surface-to-air missiles are being deployed on apartment buildings around the city, the Royal Air Force is threatening to use “lethal force,” and the British Navy’s biggest warships will be patrolling the Thames River. More than 17,000 military personnel – including nearly 12,000 soldiers – will be in the streets for the Olympics. That’s more British soldiers than are currently serving in the Afghanistan – and according to NBC news reports, “it’s the largest British security operation carried out in peacetime.”

The world is in crisis today, with war raging in the Middle East, social unrest in austerity-ravaged Europe, and bankster crimes taking down long-standing democracies across the Western World. These are all symptoms that globalism – AKA the Libertarian’s one-world paradise – is collapsing. And the fact that the world can’t come together – as it does every four years – for the Olympics without the full force of the British military mobilized – is just more evidence that something is rotten in the global landscape.

Republicans have Rejected the Republican Party

Now that John Kasich and Ted Cruz have dropped out, it’s pretty much official: Donald Trump is the 2016 Republican nominee for president.

The pundits never saw this coming, but they should have. The Republican Party has been running a scam on its base for decades now, and voters were bound to discover this scam sooner or later.
