CNN caught censoring the news

Kevin Felts, Blogger and Survivalist

Have you ever wondered if the major news outlets are telling you the truth, and especially the “whole” truth?

CNN has recently been caught censoring the news. This report comes from Milwaukee after the shooting of Sylville Smith. Let’s not get into the details of why Sylville Smith was shot by police. Just realize that CNN has is not telling the “whole” truth.

Sherelle Smith, sister of Sylville Smith, gave a video interview, but CNN left out some important quotes from her video.

What CNN reported that she said:

Thoughts on The 2016 Elections

Kevin Felts political commentator

Elections are pretty hot and heavy. The end result is each side digging in and slinging mud at each other. This has been the status quo every since the first elections were held thousands of years ago. What stands out in this election is how the press is ignoring the DNC leaked emails. The whole rigging of the DNC primary so Hillary Clinton would win has been brushed under the rug.

Where is the outrage at the DNC for plotting against Bernie? The DNC has undermined the entire Republic form of government. The people are not getting a fair and equal choice that should be expected from a republic form of government.

Are Hillary and Trump The Best We Have To Offer

At the root of the 2016 elections is the question, are Hillary and Trump the best we can do? Are these two individuals the best our nation has to offer?

Ever since Nixon took office our wonderful nation has been in a downhill spiral. Have you ever asked yourself why Nixon opened relations with China? Have you ever asked yourself why shortly after Nixon visited China toy companies started having their products made there?

Have you asked yourself why Ronald Reagan gave tax breaks to the rich? Robert Reich in his documentary “Inequality for All” explains in great detail how tax breaks for the rich have contributed to income inequality.

Support for Gun Control Fading

Handgun for bug out location

Good news ladies and gentlemen. The Independent Journal Review posted an article detailing how <Americans are Getting Tired of Gun Control Pushes.

Support for more gun control is waning across all political parties, including liberals and democrats. This should be common sense, gun control does not reduce violent crime. Criminals do not care about laws. Society should take the people who mental problems and ensure they receive help.

Democrats (from 79% to 71%)
Liberals (from 75% to 67%)
Women (from 69% 55%)
Republicans (from 39% to 29%)

If democrats and liberals want to reduce violent crime:

Illegal Immigration Nail in the Coffin for Obama

Kevin Felts political commentator

The flood of illegal immigrants will be the final nail in the coffin for obama. Even the most rabid obama supports are starting the see his true agenda. Obama will go down as the worst president in history. Instead of bringing the nation together, he drove a steel wedge through the heart of America.

Everyday working people are being thrown to the wolves while illegals are flooding this nation and overwhelming resources.

You think the economy is bad now? Just wait until those illegals are granted work visas. Those thousands of illegals crossing the border everyday will start looking for work. It is just a matter of time before human rights groups call on the U.S. government to start granting work visas. We do not expect the tens of thousands of illegals to sign up on welfare do we? If they are here they can work and support themselves, right?

China The New Face Of Global Domination

Flag of china

Lets talk about history for a couple of minutes, then let’s move onto the heart of this article. One of the main reasons Germany was defeated in WW II was the United States and Russia produced more tanks, planes, ships and guns than Germany. We had the resources where Germany did not.

World War II boiled down to numbers. Where Germany could only produce a certain amount of tanks, trucks, planes, and lacked raw materials such as oil and iron deposits, the United States and Russia had no such limitations.

For 35 – 40 years after World War II, or until the late 1970s and early 1980s the United States was the worlds production powerhouse. We made everything from toys to Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. The economy was strong, there was a thriving middle class who could afford to buy a home, buy a car or truck or both, have a family, times were good.

Then along came corporate greed and free trade. Wall street not satisfied with the profits they were making decided to move the factories to China, exploit low wage workers, then close the factories here in the states which as led to the death of the middle class.

Judge Lisa Millard Should Be Removed From Office

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

Judge Lisa Millard sentenced Clifford Hall 6 months in in jail for a crime he did not commit.

It seems that his child support payments were modified without his knowledge, which violates the due process clause of the U.S. constitution. The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees that the government can not take a persons property or liberty without a chance to present their own evidence in a court of law.

Judge Lisa Millard should be removed from office and prohibited from every holding a public office, or any office that has authority over the people. Judge Lisa Millard along with the Harris county child support office is a perfect example of how dads are being driven into child support induced poverty.

Democrats Ask Bloomberg To Give Up on Gun Control

Kevin Felts political commentator

There comes a time when you say enough is enough, and that time has come with ex-mayor Michael Bloomberg. Democrats are asking Michael Bloomberg to tone down his gun control rhetoric.

First he was forced out of office by term limits, and now high ranking democrats in Washington D.C. are asking bloomberg to tone down his anti-gun rhetoric.

Lets be honest, bloomberg turned New York into a laughing stock with his petty wars on life choices. Whether it is smoking, or large sugary drinks, people should have a right to pick their poison. People should have the right to live the lifestyle they wish. If a mayor wants to ban large soft drinks, what about stuff like beer, bacon and whiskey?

Now it seems ex-mayor bloomberg is a little too far left even for the lefties,

Beaumont Texas Man Arrested for Carrying Rifle

Kevin Felts political commentator

KBMT news is reporting Beaumont police arrested a man for lawfully carrying a rifle. The incident happening in Parkdale Mall in Beaumont Texas.

It is reported that he has a store in the mall where he sells firearm accessories, but no actual firearms are sold there. He was allowed to have the rifle at the store for demonstration purposes. While walking to the store, with the AR-15 slung over his back, several people called the police. The police responded and arrested the man.

I never thought I would see the day when a police force in southeast Texas did not support gun rights. The article says the man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Chances are the guy will be charged under Section 42.01 of the Texas Penal Code, which states,

Sec. 42.01. DISORDERLY CONDUCT. (8) displays a firearm or other deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm;

Why Major Media Dropped Arapaho School Shooting

Kevin Felts political commentator

On December 13, 2013 Karl Pierson walked into Arapaho high school, shot one student and then killed himself.

Usually this would have been major news for weeks, with anti-gun advocates coming out of the woodwork like roaches. There should have been renewed calls for gun control with president Obama addressing the nation for the need for tighter restrictions and background checks.

So what makes this school shooting different?

The shooter used a shotgun.

The shooter legally bought the firearm.

Shooter was left leaning communist democrat

A good guy with a gun put a quick end to the violence.

The Shotgun

Our Shared Financial Future

Kevin Felts political commentator

There is an old saying, “no man is an island.” What affects my neighbor also affects me. If we take a look around the United States and Europe, we see one thing in common, the banks driving the nations into bankruptcy.

Whether its the United States, Cyprus, Spain,,, banks have made so many bad loans they have to be bailed out, and at the expense of the tax payer.

In the long run this spells out two things – the banks end up with property is made bad loans on and later repossessed, and then the tax payer is in debt to the banks for their bad loans.

Cyprus – We should all be concerned about bank bailouts, and we should especially be concerned about what is happening in Cyprus. Instead of taxing the organizations who can afford it, the government is going to take 10% from all savings accounts across the nation.

Saving to buy a home? Saving to put your kids through college? Well, 10% of your money just disappeared.

Why Don’t People Address The Real Cause Of Gun Violence

Kevin Felts at the Angelina River

While browsing the net I landed on yet another gun control article. That article, like so many others does not address the root causes of gun violence.

Obama has thrown a fake bone to the gun hating liberal dogs. As they slobber all over it, the liberals are too dumb to realize its a fake bone.

Does the bone address repeat offenders?

Does the bone address gang and drug related crime?

Does the bone address protecting our borders from illegal drugs?

Does the bone address job training for criminals?

Does the bone address anything crime related?

The gun control bone the liberals are slobbering all over addresses nothing.

Background checks, so what? Its not like gang members are going to go through background checks.

World Enters New Phase As North Korea Test Nuclear Device

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

North Korea tested a nuclear device with an underground detonation on February 11, 2013. Along with North Koreas missile program the world moves closer to having a rogue nation with a Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM).

This is the first test under the leadership of Kim Jong-un.

Why put so much time, effort and money into building a nuclear missile program when people are starving? There have been reports of starvation being so widespread in North Korea that people are resorting to cannibalism.

There are main two reasons for North Korea to develop nuclear weapons – to use the weapons in an act of war, or use the weapons as a bargaining chip.

Nuclear Strike Against the United States

If North Korea were to use nuclear weapons against the United States, it is doubtful the U.S. would respond with its own nuclear attack. Due to the liability and long term sigma, the U.S. would respond with conventional weapons.

China would not tolerate the U.S. nuking North Korea anyway. The nuclear fallout to China poses a great risk. Then there are the North Korean refugees that would flee to China looking for food, medical care and shelter.

Post Office Saturday Delivery A Sign Things To Come

Kevin Felts on a hiking trip

The reason why the post office is having problems, they are not allowed to have a cash surplus. Any profit the post office makes has to be turned over to the federal government.

Like all other federal programs, the post office has been raided to fund other projects – military, welfare, food stamps, foreign aid,,,.

It’s not that the post office is broke, its federal governments out of control spending that is the problem.

The United States is bankrupt, and its just a matter of time before the bill is due.

Instead of making companies like google and Exxon pay their fair share in taxes, the government gives tax breaks to corporations, taxes the middle class, then bankrupts programs like the post office.

Our roads are falling apart, the US is lagging behind on internet access, our standard of living is declining, social security and social security disability are going broke, and now the government is cutting out Saturday delivery of the mail.

Are Gun Hating Liberals Stupid

Kevin Felts, blogger

Lets just go ahead and say it, are gun hating liberals stupid? Did they sleep through US history while in high school and college? Did they sleep through the various government classes at school? Do they never watch the History channel? Do they never celebrate the 4th of July?

If gun haters had paid attention during history class they may have understood why the 2nd Amendment ensures the right of the people to keep and bear arms – so we will never be subjugated. We are citizens, not subjects.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Do the gun haters think the British let the founding fathers form a nation? Exactly “how” did the United States come into being? I am pretty sure George Washington and Benjamin Franklin did not blog the Red Coats into leaving.

Sanctions Against Iran China To The Rescue

Kevin Felts at the Angelina River

Sanctions against Iran will not work. Obama has been saying “give sanctions a chance”, when we know for a fact sanctions will not and can not work.

Russia Today posted an article saying China is buying oil from Iran. With money flowing in from China, Iran is free to pursue its nuclear ambitions.

In another news article, Iran is moving to upgrade its centrifuges. Which means improved enrichment far above those needed for nuclear power reactors and medical devices.

Whether Iran plans on building a nuclear weapon remains to be seen.

In another article I talked about possible conflicts the US may be facing between 2013 and 2020. My personal opinion, the Wall Street and the international bankers need something big to prevent China from becoming a world economic power house. If the international bankers can not crash the economy of China, the only other option is a physical conflict.

China fueling Irans nuclear program is the excuse the US government needs to strike Iran and possibly spark a large scale war.

When Europe voted to boycott oil from Iran, this meant China could get all of the oil it wanted, and at a good price.
