    Minnesota: Teen Woman Charged with Terror, Arson After Urging Students to ‘Join the Jihad’

    A 19-year-old Minnesota woman has been charged with attempting to provide material support to al-Qaeda, committing arson out of anger because of U.S. military actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and lying to the FBI about urging fellow St. Catherine University (SCU) students to “join the jihad” against the United States, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has announced.

      The corruption and stench coming out of the swamp is mind boggling. At this point I’d say arrest them all and let a judge and jury sort it out. Almost everyone of them need to be kicked out of their cushy jobs and sent to jail to await trial on charges of Treason, Sedition and High Crimes Against the United States of America.

      Those that are found guilty should suffer the ultimate penalty.

      Do we have, oh say, around 515 good honest Americans who would want to serve this nation with honor to replace the scum sucking parasites now serving in Kongress?

    British Intelligence Now Shown Leading The Coup Against Trump; We Can Defeat Them


    LaRouchePAC’s “Robert Mueller” dossier, if circulated en masse, can do that.

    And it should not be forgotten that President Trump is getting “the LaRouche treatment” from the same Robert Mueller who launched the prosecutions of Lyndon LaRouche 35 years ago.

    No doubt all the Paul family cultists (Ron and Rand worshippers) out there are very proud of the gRandstanding Sen. Paul is doing right now.

    Why didn’t Rand-ego man do this earlier? He loves cameras more than his corrupt dad, and that’s really saying something. Remember, Ron Paul energetically (and sensibly and reasonably) called for an audit of the Fed for years. When he became a powerful House Committee chairman with the power to do so, he did…NOTHING. Then promptly retired.

    Rand Paul, cowboy: all hat, no cattle…no horse even. Oh, and lots of narcissistic hot air!

      OMG was just reading the comments to that article. I don’t know why I do it- I guess I am hoping these kind of articles will open some people’s eyes. But I am always disappointed- the level of attack and just plain stupidity. Like Gorka and Nazi ties. Where does one begin.I can go on and on. You can’t fix stupid.

      I’ve been critical at times of Rand in the past, but learning more about this budget, it should fail and they need to go back and pass a more responsible bill.

      What would we say if Obama tried to pass a bill that increased spending by 13%? We would all be howling that it was irresponsible. Rand is right – it’s just as irresponsible if it passes with help from the GOP.

      This bill tosses billions around like they are quarters. Imagine the next four budgets each get just a 10% increase. Well, that means spending would have increased 65% over the course of five budgets! This is unsustainable and it has to stop.

    The markets confirmed their vote on this budget today. Down down down. Bad for us.
    ==> A Fed board member spoke today and in a comment directed at President Trump and Congress mentioned that if the government makes the economy grow faster and too fast, the Fed will counter with faster tightening – faster rate increases and more money tightening.

    It is not personal it is just business. Too fast economy = we are way late in the tightening process and need to accelerate it much faster.

    Who is more powerful in controlling the stock and bond markets?
    Fed or Pres&Congress?

    Wall Street top fears?
    rising rates and if they will go up faster than current old forecast.
    inflation and will it go up faster than current old forecast.

    Today Wall Street traded their fears – bond yields went up a little and stocks way down. Just like what will happen if rates go up a lot faster and money is pulled out faster.

    Debt forecasts are already moving up very fast to over a trillion dollars a year for the next 2 years. Who will buy our debt. Not US Fed, Not China. the 10 yr and 30 yr bond auctions this week were pretty weak and will get much weaker. Foreign buyers dropped 10-15% this week auctions.

    Stock and Bond Markets may struggle but the economy will be great for a while.
    Then in 2019 Fitch may downgrades US debt rating from AAA to AA+ on too much debt and increasing too fast and too much debt cost. Then it all goes down. And nobody in Congress responsible enough to watch the cash register.

    All the Dem media is reporting on is the Porter story and all the Dems on my social media are all on board with the talking points, that Trump, of course, would have a wife beater in his inner circle. It’s round 1 of Campaign 2018 designed just for American women….

    Yeah, the very LAST THING the GOP Senate clowns want to do is take a RECORDED VOTE on giving up Reconciliation and pumping up domestic spending. Again!

    Hang in there, Rand!
