"though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth" -Corinthians 13
"if by supporting the rights of mankind... I shall contribute to save from the agonies of death one unfortunate victim of tyranny, or of ignorance, equally fatal, his blessing and tears of transport will be a sufficient consolation to me for the contempt of all mankind."-Marchese di Beccaria

‘Jaw-Dropping’: Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Makes Bombshell Claim About Russia and 2008 Financial Crisis (and Why It May Sound Familiar) | Video | »

Editor’s Note: Back in September of 2013, For The Record looked at the possibility that countries hostile to the U.S., including China and Russia, may have artificially driven up the price of oil and intentionally crashed the stocks of some financial institutions to throw the American economy into chaos prior to the 2008 economic crisis. Subscribers to TheBlaze TV can watch “For The Record: Unrestricted Warfare”​ now for more on China and Russia’s history of economic warfare.

“I just got a report yesterday or the day before, that our footprint used to be… When I was at Fox our footprint was thirty million. I was excited last year when we hit a footprint of thirty million people. 30 Million people a month that was our footprint. That new footprint? I got the report this week, fifty million Americans. That’s a very good thing, that’s a very good thing. My goal in the next 18 months, is to have it at a hundred million people. That’s a third of the population.”

"During Hasan’s trial, the Judge Col. Terra Osborne, limited prosecuters from introducing evidence that would establish Hasan’s Jihadi motives, including his communications with international terrorist Anwar Al Aulaqi; meaning that the evidence that tied Hasan to international terrorism was struck from the trial record."

BOA filed a Suspicious Activity Report for Nidal Hasan’s transferring money, at least 3 transfers, to the Bank of Palestine 

Chilling: Why An Underreported, ‘Significant Incident of Domestic Terrorism’ Might Not Be a Failed Attack at All | Video | »

On April 16, 2013 six men launched an attack on a critical power station in California. The attack consisted of hundreds of AK-47 rounds being unleashed on 10 large transformers — and it was first called “vandalism.” But the former chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission calls it “the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred.” It has largely gone unreported, although TheBlaze did cover it last December. Dr. Peter Vincent Pry tells TheBlaze, “If it was a terrorist attack, the electric power industry and the media are almost certainly in error to describe it as a ‘failed attack.’” Former CIA director James Woolsey adds, “Without electricity we aren’t a civilization, and this is a major societal vulnerability.”

“It’s just such a ridiculous concept on its face though. *chuckles* Who’s waging this war? Who are the front-line battalions in this war on women? Who apposes women? Who doesn’t have a mother or a sister? I mean, it’s just, this is the craziest notion and it just shows you the power of affirmation repetition and contagion, the propagandistic mechanism the Obama administration has mastered all the way into the highest office in the land.”

Fact Check: No, ‘Actual’ Unemployment Isn’t 37.2 Percent | »

The Wall Street adviser’s figure “is absolutely ridiculous and tremendously overstates labor market weakness. A total joke,” Pethokoukis said in a fiery blog post. “Using Marotta’s ‘logic,’ maybe the ‘real’ unemployment rate is merely the share of … the civilian noninstitutional without a job. That comes out to a whopping 44.5%!” Now this isn’t to say that the official unemployment rate, which currently rests at 6.7 percent, doesn’t seriously understate the reality of the unemployment situation in the United States. Indeed, as noted every month by TheBlaze, the U-6 unemployment rate, considered a broader measure of actual unemployment in the U.S., regularly posts a much higher figure than the “official” unemployment rate. The U-6 rate, which includes not just the unemployed, but also the underemployed and the discouraged, currently sits are around 13.1 percent.
