When Tyranny Came

It wasn’t carrying a bible and draped in the flag…It came to outlaw both of them....

Increased Tolerance Leads to Increased Dosage

You would think the prevalence of TDS would begin to decline, but whatever happens it’s only going to get worse. Just look at this madness.  The only reasonable explanation for treating this weekend as a hotbed of terrorism is that they know something about a planned false flag that...
