    Joseph Goebbels sums it up..

    The commies are coming, the commies are coming...Unwitting Marxists are being created everyday..
  3. Obama and Killery Clinton are two of the biggest Marxists in the mainstream today. Elites like these two are trying to weaken the United States from the inside. Communism is encroaching on our borders and folks like these two are handing them the keys.. We have to take this threat seriously...
  4. The shocking footage - captured using a car dash camera - shows the brutal reality of life on the street for some 20,000 people in the notorious Skid Row district. Shot on 5th Street, 6th Street and San Pedro Street, it is a stark glimpse into the day-to-day existence of some of the country's poorest citizens - including women and children. This area of LA's central business zone is considered to be one of the most dangerous places to live in the city. Dash camera footage captures the brutal reality of life on the street for some 20,000 people in the notorious Skid Row district of LA's central business zone In Skid Row - one of the notorious homeless hotspots in the area - nine toilets are shared by some 2,000 people, according to a June report titled 'No Place to Go'. A lucky few will find food and somewhere warm to sleep at shelters and rescue missions. But many are left to navigate the industrial sprawl and smoke alone. The video shows rubbish bags piled up by the pavements and littered across streets, and tents erected in clusters where people have camped down for the night The three-minute clip was originally published on Instagram by LA street artist Plastic Jesus then on LiveLeak by Nick Stern in the 'Citizen Journalism' video category. It had only been live for 10 hours when it was viewed nearly 40,000 times. In one frame of the viral footage, a man can be seen pushing a wheelchair in the middle of the road. Another wheelchair-bound man reclines listlessly on a street corner while women file their thin-looking children through the crowds. Makeshift canopies - often simply sheets erected on poles - are packed in tightly beside one another in endless rows. The rising cost of rent and housing in California is also forcing middle class residents into alternative accommodation. Workers end up living in their cars by the roadside and hundreds of people - including nurses and chefs - sleep in parking lots in affluent areas like Santa Barbara. For example, nursing assistant Marva Ericson has been sleeping in her Kia for the past three months. She showers at her local YMCA then gets dressed in her hospital scrubs for work. The problem is so widespread that a Safe Parking Program was introduced in the area 12 years ago. It allows clients to stay overnight in the parking lots of churches, not-for-profits and government offices. In Santa Barbara alone, there are 23 parking lots currently used for the program. A homeless man stands forlornly by the roadside in the Skid Row district of Los Angeles with his possessions stuffed into a trolley and shabby white bin bag Though ranked as one of the wealthiest nations, the US is home to some of the poorest communities in the world. The wealthiest one per cent of American households own 40 percent of the country's wealth, according to a November report by economist Edward N. Wolff. That same one per cent of households own more wealth than the bottom 90 per cent combined, the Washington Post reported. Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
  5. As a member of the Liberal Party, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to legalize cannabis during his 2015 campaign. But he had been contemplating the issue for far longer. In a 2013 interview with the Huffington Post, Trudeau admitted to sneaking a puff while a sitting member of Parliament. Then, last week, Trudeau released legislation that would make Canada the first industrialized nation to legalize marijuana. If it passes Parliament, which is widely expected, marijuana will be legally available across the vast nation by mid-2018. While recreational marijuana for adult use is legal in eight U.S. states, and a growing tolerance of weed has cushioned the legalization announcement's impact, Canada's announcement is a major milestone for the legalization movement and big questions remain unanswered. Here, a what you need to know about recreational weed in Canada, and what that might mean for Americans. How did Canada get here? Canada legalized medical marijuana in 2001. Since then, the industry has evolved in a staid way. Producers grow their crops in enormous warehouses and directly send product to patients by mail or courier service. Medical marijuana companies raise money by going public on the stock exchange, just like normal businesses. Dispensaries are still illegal in Canada, though they've been tolerated in some areas. What's going to be legal? In the U.S., legalization has led to an explosion of brands and products including edibles, vaping oils and a variety of hash-like concentrates generally preferred by the heaviest users. Canada has nothing like that. For now, edibles are illegal, though that is expected to change. The rules governing concentrates are murkier, but licensed producers have not devoted the same energy to product development as their American counterparts. For example, vape pens are not widely available through legal channels. The overall approach has been cautious since it can "always relax the rules later," according to Hilary Bricken, a Seattle cannabusiness lawyer with clients on both sides of the border. "Americans have been crossing the border to get blasted in Canada," for a long time, Bricken says, and Canada seems to be doing all it can to tamp down consumer excitement. Most Canadian provinces still control some of their alcohol sales – the governments own the liquor stores – and Bricken says it's likely that provinces will control cannabis distribution as well. The drinking age in Canada is 18 or 19, depending on the province. The minimum cannabis age in Canada will be 18, though provinces can raise it, if they choose. Will U.S. citizens be able to partake in legalized Canadian weed? With such a tightly controlled market up north, Bricken doesn't expect legalization in Canada to have much impact on U.S. consumption habits. While Americans will be able to buy marijuana in Canada – and it's possible that Amsterdam style "coffeeshops" could eventually become popular – Canada's federal government has decided to allow individual provinces to create their own rules governing public consumption. Canada's proposed legislation doesn't offer any answers. The provinces will have to write their own rules, so tourists' ability to enjoy weed on their own terms has not yet been determined. Some AirBnB's in legal U.S. states and Canada already advertise themselves as 420 friendly and there will undoubtedly be more opportunities in Canada. Perhaps recognizing that the horse has left the barn, the U.S. government hasn't expressed much concern about Canada's decision to legalize. The U.S. embassy in Ottawa told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that "legalization of marijuana in Canada will not have any impact on marijuana's legality in the United States." It also warned Canadians to be "aware of possible actions they may face upon attempted entrance into the United States." Will this affect the cannabis business in the U.S.? In the business arena the disparity in how the two countries operate has created exciting opportunities according to Alan Brochstein, a Houston-based pot stock analyst who runs the finance site New Cannabis ventures. Canadian companies, he says, are better capitalized than their American counterparts and know how to grow legal weed on a massive scale. He cited the Canadian grower Aphria which has partnered with companies in Arizona and Florida, where expertise is lacking. Meanwhile the major Colorado producer and retailer The Green Solution has moved to bring its expertise in product development and manufacturing up north. "It's definitely a two-way flow," Brochstein says. Ultimately though he thinks national legalization gives Canada an edge. Federal illegality is a "cloud" over the U.S. industry, he says. "It's sad but true that Canada is the global leader in cannabis." Could this mean federal legalization for the U.S. is close behind? In the U.S., though 29 states have some sort of legalization program, cannabis remains federally illegal, including for medical use. Due largely to this restriction, America's legal cannabis industry has grown into a patchwork Frankenstein monster: each state has had to determine for itself whether legalization makes sense and how the industry should be governed. During the Obama administration the monster's ostensible "head" in Washington D.C. demonstrated minimal interest in coordinating the state experiments. The guiding principle, laid out in a 2013 Justice Department memo, is that law enforcement wouldn't interfere with state legal industries, as long as they followed a few overarching rules like no shipments across state lines and no selling to children. Other U.S. agencies have, for the most part, also held back from discussing relevant issues like the industry's environmental impact and labor standards. This crazy quilt approach has advantages for some: small companies and brands have been able to grow without competition with corporate giants. States, and in many cases counties and cities, have been able to assert their priorities in terms of what products are available, and where they are produced and sold. Yet the Obama administration's hands-off approach might be described as benign neglect. Thus far under Trump, the industry has continued to operate, but its mellow has been harshed. The need for criminal justice reform is one of the few areas where a bipartisan consensus has grown over the last few years. Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions has not joined the consensus continuing to support tough on crime policies. "When they nominated me for attorney general, you would have thought the biggest issue in America was when I said, 'I don't think America's going to be a better place if they sell marijuana at every corner grocery store," he recently said, suggesting frustration with the impossibility of stopping legalization, or that his boss won't let him try – at least so far. Yet with Canada joining

  7. ORIGINS AND HISTORY OF NIPTON In the nineteenth century, two overland wagon trails crossed on the east slope of Ivanpah Valley. One east-west trail carried people and freight from the Colorado River to the silver mining town of Ivanpah. The other, a north-south trail went from the mining community of Goodsprings to Goffs, a station on the Santa Fe Railroad (the Southern Route). A discovery of gold at the turn of the 20th Century in the Crescent District drew attention to the crossroad which would become the town site and place name of Nipton. An entrepreneur and gold seeker from western Pennsylvania, S.(Samuel) D. (“Dunc”) Karns, arrived in Ivanpah Valley late in the 19th Century attracted by the boom town in the Vanderbilt Gold District just up the valley from the E-W/N-S crossroad. It is thought that on January 1, 1900, Karns and some associates staked the earliest claim in the Crescent District, to be given the name Nippeno, later to be followed by adjacent claims Susquehana, Cumberland, Northhumberland, Pennsylvania, &Osceola: taken together to be known as the NIPPENO CONSOLIDATED MINE. The mining camp associated with the mine was known as NIPPENO CAMP which was located nearby the wagon crossroad. There is evidence that the name Nippeno derives from Native American tradition of the western Pennsylvania region. Nevada Senator William Clark, a Montana copper baron, was determined to connect Salt Lake City to Los Angeles by rail. In 1885 he proposed building the railroad which his company completed in the winter of 1904/1905 which passed immediately by the crossroad and Nippeno Camp. The San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake railroad brought new traffic to the little crossroads community. The whistle-stop on the railroad time tables was designated as “Nippeno Camp”. Passengers bringing freight and cattle from the neighboring region traveled to Nippeno Camp as it was the most accessible railhead for transit to the east-Salt Lake City and Chicago, and to the west-Los Angeles. By 1910 the S.P., L.A., & S.L. line had been merged into Harriman’s Union Pacific Railroad System and the name of the crossroads community had been changed to Nipton. A stage coach line from Searchlight, Nevada was established to carry passengers and freight to Nipton and the railhead. Early records from the 1900 Census indicate an individual named Karns registered as a Mining Engineer in the Vanderbilt District. Post Office records for the period of 1907 – 1909 show a S.D. Karns as the Postmaster in Nipton. Voter records (1908) indicate that Karns was a registered voter in the Vanderbilt Precinct and worked as the storekeeper in Nipton. Obituaries in Pennsylvania papers indicated that Karns died in Nipton in 1909. Harry Trehearne, a Cornish miner from England, immigrated to America and was naturalized in Las Vegas in 1913. Settling down in Nipton, he opened a general store and pursued the development of the community, which included restoring the Hotel Nipton and digging the first water well. He was also active in many local mine explorations and developments. Harry met Ella Mae and they married, establishing a family home in Nipton. They filed homestead papers with the Federal Government and on April 10, 1940, President Franklin D. Roosevelt completed the process, signing the homestead thus transferring the title of the land from the United States to Trehearne. In 1940 while Harry Trehearne was returning to England for a visit, he was aboard the Athenia when it was torpedoed off the English coast. Trehearne survived and returned to Nipton. On his return, Trehearne continued to develop the community of Nipton. He built a new General Store (now the Nipton Trading Post), the Town Hall and the Nippeno House. Other projects at the emerging town site also continued. Clara Bow, the famed “IT Girl” of the Hollywood Silent Film era, moved to a cattle ranch about 16 miles from Nipton in the late 20’s. Her husband, Rex Bell, drove their cattle overland to Nipton for shipment by rail to the slaughter yards. Clara accompanied the cowboys to Nipton, where she picked up her fan mail from the post office, and visited with her friends Harry and Ella Trehearne. Clara, it is said, preferred Room # 3 in the Hotel Nipton for her stays. Today Room # 3 is called the Clara Bow Room. Clara and Rex often entertained the Hollywood crowd at Nipton and on their ranch. Trainloads of guests would arrive in Nipton for the overland auto ride to their Walking Box Ranch. Harry Trehearne passed away in 1949 and Nipton passed into other hands. After a period of neglect, Nipton was purchased by the Gerald Freeman family in 1984. Much of Nipton has been restored since then. The Freeman’s first efforts included the restoration and renovation of Hotel Nipton and the promotion of it as a Bed and Breakfast Inn, and the reforming of the general store into the Nipton Trading Post as a gift and convenience store. Nipton Station, a recreational vehicle park, was developed to provide temporary living accommodations for workers in the local gold mines. A new future is being charted as a gateway community to Mojave National Preserve. The new emphasis for Nipton is as a host location for cannabis tourism and a hub for art and nature educational workshops. This is a shift from its traditional role in mining, ranching and railroading.
  8. The unofficial list helps to counter the impression in the mainstream media and among congressional Democrats that outside the approval of Supreme Court Neil Gorsuch and passage of the tax reform bill little was done. Administrations typically tout their achievements broadly at the end of each year, but Trump plans to list jobs added, regulations killed, foreign policy victories won, and moves to help veterans and even drug addicts. And in a sign of support for conservatives, the White House also is highlighting achievements for the pro-life community.
