Over the past couple of days, we’ve highlighted a couple of the mass protests that are being planned by disaffected Hillary supporters in an effort to disrupt the various Trump inaugural events that get kicked off tomorrow evening. Perhaps the most aggressive “disruptions” have been planned by groups called “DisruptJ20” and the “DC Anti-Fascist Coalition” and include plans to “paralyze the city” with “clusterfuck blockades” of bridges and tunnels, “stink bombs” in ventilation systems and chaining metro trains to station platforms to shut down rail traffic. Unfortunately for them, all of their plans were caught on tape by Project Veritas (see “New Video Exposes Anti-Trump Groups Plotting Criminal Acts To Disrupt Inauguration“) so we suspect police will be well prepared.
As Reuters points out this morning, efforts to disrupt the inaugural process will have to evade a massive force of 28,000 security personnel and miles of fencing and roadblocks fortified by sand-laden dump trucks and other heavy equipment. Continue reading »
ROMA, Texas — Four family members who ran one of the largest cartel smuggling operations in south Texas had their life in prison sentences commuted and will likely be returning to this border city from where they ran their criminal empire. One of the main destinations that the criminal organizations delivered drugs to was Chicago, Illinois.
This week, outgoing President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 209 convicted criminals and pardoned 64 others. The majority of the convictions were from drug trafficking or production offenses.
Four of those convicted criminals who had been sentenced to life in prison will be released by May 17. They ran a criminal organization made up of close to 80 men and women who worked with Mexico’s Gulf Cartel to move between 100,000 to almost 750,000 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. during a 10-year period. The drugs were moved into Houston and then distributed to Atlanta, Chicago, and other major metropolitan areas. Continue reading »
Billionaire investor George Soros spoke to Bloomberg TV in Davos, and said the euphoria among stock investors since the victory of President-elect Donald Trump will end as uncertainty takes over.
In an interview that may have been even gloomier than his last address to Davos in January 2016, when he said he was short the market, predicted a Chinese hard landing, and said the Fed’s hike was a mistake, on Thursday Soros unleashed the hate, saying America has elected a “would-be dictator” as president, the European Union is disintegrating, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May won’t last long as her nation prepares to secede from the EU, and China is poised to become an even more repressive society.

In a burst of transparency, one day after it made available some 13 million pages of archives documents online for the first time, on Wednesday the Central Intelligence Agency unveiled revised rules for collecting, analyzing and storing information on American citizens, publishing them in full for the first time.
As Reuters reported, the new rules were released amid continued public concern about the government’s surveillance powers, and were published two days before President elect-Donald Trump is sworn into office and may be changed by the new administration. Trump has said he favors stronger government surveillance powers, including the monitoring of “certain” mosques in the United States. Continue reading »
Budgeting can be difficult, particularly for expansive state budgets that require a ton of inputs to support 1,000s of line items each of which can result in massive variances depending on the development of various economic indicators like interest rates, commodity prices, etc. throughout the year.
That said, while forecasting variances are inevitable, we, as taxpayers, generally rely on our expensive budget office employees to at least present annual budgets that reflect sound mathematics and accounting principles. Unfortunately, that seems to be too much to ask of the math-challenged administration of California Governor Jerry Brown which decided to double count certain cost savings and simply “forgot” to incorporate other expenses altogether. Per the LA Times: Continue reading »
There is much we don’t know about how the Trump presidency will play out. Will the Wall get built? Who will pay for it? Will it have at least some fencing? Will repeal and replace happen at exactly the same time? Will Trump throw a ceremonial switch? Will there be a Trump National Golf Course in Sochi? It’s anyone’s guess. But of one thing we can be fairly certain. President Trump is very likely to preside over the largest expansion of Federal budget deficits in our history. Trump has built his companies with debt and I’m sure he thinks he can do the same with the country. His annual budget deficits are likely going to be huge. This development will make a greater impact on the investment landscape than most on Wall Street can imagine. Continue reading »
How quickly six months passed when DNC and environmental groups called for prosecution of all those that din not believe that CO2 was a settled science. Not that the Baltic Sea is freezing for the first time in 60 years, snow in Albania in first 30 years, Venice lagoon 20 years and 5X record snow in Corsica, the debate needs to be opened about the Sun’s effects on our Earth and how to adjust to the new grand solar minimum.

ReadyNutrition Readers, this article is a “trumpet call” to continue your preparations, or to commence with them if you have not done so already. We don’t know what the inauguration is going to bring, if indeed it does occur peaceably. For one thing, everyone and their brother on the Left has threated everything possible, such as mass demonstrations, mass disruptions, and physical violence against the incoming president. The bottom line: we don’t know what will happen, and it is best to remain in a state of readiness and preparation.
I’m also going to explain something of my own mindset regarding matters toward preparation. With some of the pieces I have written, there have been a good deal of disparaging comments, especially directed toward pieces with recommendations for tools, equipment, food, and on-the-spot preps from bargain sources and Dollar stores.
The reason I have suggested things such as small tool kits and “piecemeal” equipment from thrift shops or the Dollar Trees is that there are tremendous numbers of readers that are either just starting out prepping or are on a limited budget…so limited that they can do it no other way.
I fully understand there are some people who cannot afford laser rangefinders, Gerber Multi-tools, or Fat Max Stanley tape measures. I suggest alternatives for them. Know what? Here’s the bottom line on that:
None of us are going to be completely prepared when the bottom drops out. Knowledge and skills should be desirous over materials, because with these you can either acquire what is needed or improvise out of what can be fabricated into something useful.
Obama just recently signed Executive Order 12333 into play. This one removes the restrictions over the intelligence-gathering agencies regarding the sharing of information pertaining to terrorist suspects, ad infinitum. There is also mention of procedures that reinforce previous NDAA policies of taking any and all actions necessary against terrorists, whether they are actual or potential. In essence, the EO hands over the unchecked power to snoop into the hands of soon-to-be president Donald Trump. Continue reading »
Earlier this morning we predicted a fiery confirmation hearing for Trump’s Treasury Secretary pick, Steven Mnuchin. And right on cue, the confirmation had barely begun when it was promptly derailed after Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas suggested that his colleague, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), should pop a valium before the next round of questioning.
“Sen. Wyden, I’ve got a Valium pill here that you might want to take before the second round….just a suggestion, sir.”
Of course, the comment didn’t go over well with Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee as Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) pounced on the remarks sending the hearing into a moment of pure chaos with Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) struggling to regain control.
While security is in place and there is no specific, credible threat, a quirk in America’s rules for succession raises questions about who would be in charge if an attack hit the incoming president, vice president and congressional leaders just as the transfer of power gets underway. CNN’s Brian Todd reports.

Florida cops arrested seven volunteers from an activist group called Food Not Bombs for feeding homeless people in a park Saturday afternoon.
Tampa police say they made the arrests because the group doesn’t have a permit to serve the food, which requires an insurance policy.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke had a man detained for looking at him the wrong way on an airplane Sunday. Or for mocking him over a football game.
Or, if you believe the sheriff, for making him fear for his life.
“Next time he or anyone else pulls this stunt on a plane they may get knocked out,” the sheriff said in a statement. “I do not have to wait for some goof to assault me.”
From shaking things up in Washington to causing extreme confusion and butt-hurt for current leaders in France and Germany, one could say the European establishment doesn’t know whether to shit or go blind. (Kind of like the American establishment)

FORMER MALE PROSTITUTE LARRY SINCLAIRspilled the beans back in 2008 right before the election.
Speaking before the National Press Club in DC, Larry Sinclair narrated in embarrassing detail his sexual-liaison with Barack Obama when he was a state senator of Illinois. (Excerpt:)
“I performed fellatio on Senator Obama in the limousine during the time Obama was smoking crack cocaine. After which, I had the driver take me to The Comfort Suites in Gurney Illinois.
“The following day, November 7th 1999, Senator Obama appeared at my hotel room, unannounced, uninvited, where we ingested cocaine and I again performed fellatio on Obama.”View Entire StoryHere & Here.
“We are not going gently into the night.” Yeah, you’re sending 3000 US troops and heavy armor to the Polish-Russian border. Demented. https://t.co/fQ5rLhdrTl

The Central Intelligence Agency has published nearly 13 million pages of declassified files online, documents which previously were physically accessible only from four computer terminals at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland.
The record include info on Nazi war crimes, the Cuban Missile Crisis, UFO sightings, human telepathy (“Project Stargate”) and much more. The release has been a long time coming: Bill Clinton first ordered all documents at least 25 years old with “historical value” to be declassified in 1995. The agency complied, however anyone who wanted access had to trek all the way to the US National Archives in Washington DC to get a peak. Continue reading »
The stage for Friday is obviously being set.
As previously (and now extensively) reported here at The Daily Sheeple, copious warning signs coming out of DC signal that Friday’s inauguration will be anything but a peaceful transition to power. Whenever the inauguration is brought up, words like riot, violence, and chaos aren’t too far behind.
Secret Service is now saying they are gearing up for a ceremony unlike any they have ever overseen. Over 100 protest groups are now scheduled to attend, and ads for paid agitators have gone up in two dozen cities across the country.
The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is the most expensive military program in the world with a total cost of more than $US1 trillion ($1.3 trillion). Now, a new Pentagon report suggests that the futuristic fighter jet still has hundreds of deficiencies and won’t be ready for full combat testing until 2019.
The Pentagon’s latest brutal assessment of this high-priced aircraft was part of an annual report from the Pentagon’s director of operational test and evaluation Michael Gilmore. The dossier includes a five-page evaluation of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program, the results of which are damning — emphasis ours: Continue reading »
