Republicans Fear for Their Safety as Threats Mount

By Cristina Marcos – Re-Blogged From The Hill

A growing number of House Republicans are facing physical threats from angry constituents in their districts, leading many to fear for their safety.

In the last few weeks alone, the FBI arrested a man threatening Rep. Martha McSally’s (R-Ariz.) life, a woman pursued Rep. David Kustoff (R-Tenn.) in her car, and Rep. Tom Garrett (R-Va.) heightened security at a town hall event in response to death threats.

Other Republicans still holding town halls say they haven’t felt physically threatened by protesters, but they worry about the depth of anger from some constituents in the polarized environment and what it means for political civility.

California Governor Brown Imposing Massive Regulations for Meaningless Climate Goals

By Larry Hamlin – Re-Blogged From http://www.WattsUpWithThat.com

California Governor Brown’s SB 32 law requiring the state to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to levels 40% below levels measured in 1990 is necessitating the development of massive numbers of new regulations and policy that will allow the state government to control and dictate virtually every aspect of Californian’s lives including:

  • where and how they can live,
  • what kind of jobs and businesses they can work in,
  • what kind of housing they can have,
  • what kind of car they can drive (if any),
  • how many miles can they drive,
  • what kind of public transportation they must use,
  • how many times they must walk and bicycle,
  • how much and what kind of energy they can use,
  • what kind and how food can be farmed,

etc, etc.

Gold Juniors’ Q1’17 Fundamentals

By Adam Hamilton – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

The junior gold miners’ stocks suffered a serious thrashing between mid-April and early May.  Relentless heavy selling blasted many back down near deep mid-December lows, leaving sentiment in tatters.  But traders distracted by weak technicals need to keep their eyes on the fundamental ball.  The gold juniors just finished their Q1 earnings season, which was solid.  Their low stock prices are disconnected from reality.

Four times a year publicly-traded companies release treasure troves of valuable information in the form of quarterly reports.  These are generally due by 45 days after quarter-ends in the US and Canada.  They offer true and clear snapshots of what’s really going on operationally, shattering the misconceptions bred by the ever-shifting winds of sentiment.  There’s no junior-gold-miner data that is more highly anticipated.

China’s Demographic Woes Worsen as Women Opt for Work Over Kids

Re-Blogged From Newsmax

That’s according to a new survey by Zhaopin.com, one of the nation’s biggest online recruitment websites, which found  about 40 percent of working women without children don’t want to have any and roughly two thirds of those with a child don’t want a second.

Is American Foreign Policy The Key To Economic Growth?

Guest Post By Helen Robinson From Best Vacuum for Stairs

It is evident that American foreign policy has been and still is a major influence on economic growth. The US has been trying to maintain good relationships with other countries. In fact, the policy states that the US will try to maintain peace with other countries provided they have mutual interest. However, there are some conflicts, such as the war in the Middle East and North Korea testing missiles, that have drawn the USA into conflicts. The USA also has tried to solve most of these conflicts in an amicable way without escalating the conflicts. The US has even been sending troops to these areas with conflicts to try and deal with the conflicts.

Unvaccinated Children Have Much Lower Rates of Chronic Illness, Jackson State Study Finds

By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. – Re-Blogged From https://worldmercuryproject.org

The first peer-reviewed study comparing health outcomes of vaccinated children versus unvaccinated was recently published in the Journal of Translational Science  by epidemiologists from the School of Public Health at Jackson State University.  The study’s conclusions are likely to inflame the fierce debate over whether vaccines and a mercury-containing vaccine preservative may be culprits in the dramatic rise in certain neurodevelopmental disorders in our children, including autism.
