Jim Carrey Exposes the NWO

This is brilliant. If people in the audience think conspiracy theories about the New World Order (NWO) etc. are ridiculous, then this is a mildly amusing comedy bit.

The Bigger Threat: The Police State or Looting?

You can guess my answer. Here’s an excerpt, but you should follow the link for my surprise conclusion! But let’s put aside the specific triggers of riots and looting, and take them as given. It still doesn’t follow that we need a strong State to protect innocent lives. No, as I’ve explained elsewhere (try here and here), a […]
