Myth of Common Law Marriage

While the number of people living together has nearly doubled since 1981 without getting married because many are now afraid of the legal obligations of marriage, there remains a common misperception that if you live together for a certain length of time (seven years is what many people seem to believe), you are magically in a common-law marriage. This is just simply not true anywhere in the United States.
Some states recognize common-law marriages with stipulations such as proving cohabitation and a reputation of being married at bare minimum. Some states, like Alabama, recognize common-law marriages if there is 1) mental capacity; (2) an agreement to be husband and wife; and (3) consummation of the marital relationship. Other States like California do not recognize common-law marriages, but recognize civil unions or domestic partnership whereas one has rights to joint health care, estate planning and adoption benefits to unmarried couples who have registered as domestic partners. The law gives same-sex couples some of the essential resources necessary to protect their families and their relationships. You still have to pay a fee.

Out of Order: Thousands of ATMs have been Cleaned out In Greece

As the talks between the Greek government and their creditors slowly falls apart, the citizens of Greece are busy preparing for the worst. They don’t want to be caught off guard like they were during the last economic crash, and they certainly don’t want to end up like the people of Cyprus, and have their hard-earned savings arbitrarily taken from them.

The Real Reason for the Anti-Confederate Flag Hysteria

Every couple of years the totalitarian socialist Left in America (a.k.a., the Democratic Party and all of its appendages) pretends to be indignant about the existence of the Confederate flag somewhere. The lapdog cultural Marxist media fall in line, treating the siting of the flag in the same way they would treat the siting of an Ebola victim in a large crowd. Americans are reminded once again by the New York/New England/Ivy League-educated presstitute class that they should hate Southerners and all things Southern. As Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart recently whined in faux horror, Southerners ‘waged war against the United States’ government! Waaaaaaaaah!
The anti-Confederate flag hysteria is only one small part of the Left’s general strategy, however. It is part of their overriding strategy of diverting the public’s attention away from all the grotesque failures of leftist interventionism, from the welfare state to the government takeover of education to the war on drugs and beyond. The neocons who run the Republican Party are usually complicit in all of this.
The welfare state has decimated the black family and is hard at work destroying the white family as well by eliminating the stigma against a man’s abandoning his wife and children with welfare checks (See Charles Murray, Losing Ground). What does the Confederate flag have to do with this? The welfare state has destroyed the work ethic of millions of Americans. What does the Confederate flag have to do with this? The Fed caused the biggest depression since the Great Depression with its latest boom-and-bust-cycle act. What does the Confederate flag have to do with this?

To Arms, French

PARIS – Mon dieu! France is in the gravest peril.
France has always been the mother of gastronomy with a noble tradition stretching back to the Middle Ages. The names of great chefs like Escoffier, Careme and Prunier are shining stars in the firmament of grand cuisine.
These luminaries must be turning in their graves as France forgets its noble gastronomic traditions and plunges into industrialized food preparation worthy of airline swill.
My father, Henry Margolis, was part owner of New York City’s renowned Caf Chambord, which was America’s leading French restaurant in the 1940′s and 1950′s. I used to work in the kitchen chopping vegetables, stirring sauces, and watching the burly, ruddy-faced cooks from Normandy produce dishes of exquisite taste and noble character.
Such was the tradition of fine, classic French food until Socialism in the form of the late French President Francois Mitterrand drove a carving knife into the art of cooking. The unfortunate the advent of ‘cuisine minceur’ – tiny dollops of tasteless glop designed for weight-watching women and overweight mice also injured France’s gastronomy.

Supreme Court Upholds Same Sex Marriage

There is probably no other decision that could stir the fires in the Republican Party to further the SPLIT than this decision despite the fact that it is legally correct. You cannot deny Gays equal rights without surrendering your own for that is how the law really works. If you say a Black cannot vote, then that will be expanded to Jews, Catholics, Muslims or whoever is the minority for that is the primary danger of Democracy where the majority can outlaw the minority.

Friday’s ‘Triple Terror Attack’ Puts Europe On High Fear Alert

21st Century Wire says…
Yesterday saw three separate ‘terrorist’ incidents take place in Tunisia, France and in Kuwait. Not surprisingly, the media and western political heads are going with the ‘ISIS’ narrative, but not even considering that other agents may be in play here.
21WIRE analyst Patrick Henningsen speaks to RT International about racial and religious division, as well as possible Deep State motives for Friday’s violent attacks…

Challenge: what US federal legislator will dare to get arrested over the TPP?

Challenge: what US federal legislator will dare to get arrested over the TPP?
TPP: US Congress’ stage play, con game, pretense, parade of cowards
‘There are two sides to this debate.’ Fake, fake, fake.
by Jon Rappoport
June 26, 2015
(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)
When puppets dance on the end of a string, they need to exhibit a pretense of freedom once in a while, to keep the customers interested. It’s part of the show. It’s part of the con.
The Congress has now granted Obama ‘fast-track authority.’ What does this actually mean?
It means that, when the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Treaty comes up for consideration soon, this gargantuan Globalist takeover of 12 national governments cannot be amended. It cannot be filibustered. From the time the TPP is introduced, no more than 90 days can elapse before the House and Senate cast their yes or no votes.
Most people concede that the passage of fast-track ensures the passage of the TPP, but of course this isn’t so.
Nothing would prevent the Congress from voting the TPP down, especially and because the contents of the Treaty are secret. The public isn’t informed of the details.

America’s Obamacare Nightmare Is Just Beginning

This week the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the federal government could continue to subsidize health-insurance coverage through Healthcare.gov, the federal exchanges. An ecstatic President Obama declared that Obamacare is ‘here to stay.’
No, it’s not.
A judicial victory doesn’t automatically translate into a political victory, let alone a policy success. Once they’ve quaffed their celebratory champagne, the president and White House staff will need to suit up and get ready to play some hard-nosed defense.
Here’s why. The driving force behind health reform has been the desire to control rising health-care costs. From 2008 onwards, President Obama promised that his reform agenda would reduce the annual cost for the typical American family by no less than $2,500. After a while, it became a rather tiresome talking point. But it was pure nonsense from the start.
Health-care spending increases were slowing down well before Congress enacted Obamacare. But with the onset of Obamacare, health-insurance premiums in the exchanges jumped by double digits, while deductibles increased dramatically. If you liked your doctor, you would be able to keep you doctor, the president insisted, but maybe not, in reality, depending upon whether or not your physician networks narrowed. Looking toward 2016, health insurers say premium costs will soar.
In the days, weeks and months leading up to the King v. Burwell decision, commentators obsessed over the roughly 6.4 million persons who could lose health-insurance subsidies. With the Court’s ruling, they can keep the federal subsidies. But that doesn’t come close to ending the debate.

I Live in Sodom and You Live in Gomorrah Because America Is Dead

The United States Supreme Court as well as the international bankers (e.g. Goldman Sachs, Bank of America), are the personification of the evil the Bible speaks about in Sodom and Gomorrah, and these servants of Satan have hijacked our Republic.
Our Republic is ruled by men and women who serve the ideals and values of Satan. They will surely be destroyed by God’s judgment. In the interim, are you going to continue to let them take you with them?
America Is Plunging Into the Depths of Hell on Earth
The signs are everywhere, the global elite are preparing to initiate a series of false flag attacks, impose martial law under Jade Helm, collapse the economy, commence WW III and force Americans to become totally subservient and dependent upon the government, a government controlled by the will of Satan.
The Ten Commandments Are the Foundation of Our Legal Code
Many of us lament the fact that the Constitution is no longer revered and honored by our governmental leaders. They raise their right hands, pledge a solemn oath (‘… So help me God.) to defend the Constitution and then subsequently spend their elected term dismantling the Constitution that they pledged to protect and defend from enemies both foreign and domestic. Why?

The 3 Most Unbelievable ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Involving the U.S. Govt Ultimately Proven as Fact

If someone told you that the U. S. government plotted terror attacks against targets on U. S. soil, that CIA had infiltrated the entirety of Western media and was using the media as a propaganda tool or that after World War II the U. S. secretly brought over a thousand Nazi scientists to the U. S to work on top secret projects for the federal government, people would likely say they were a wild conspiracy theorist.
On the surface these, ‘conspiracy theories’ sound like insane movie plots produced by Hollywood, but sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction – and much more ominous.
Welcome to 2015, where tinfoil has become reality.
Let us guide you through 3 of the most tyrannical escapades ever endeavored upon by the United States government, proven through investigation and declassified documents.
1. Operation Northwoods
After the failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961, in the midst of the Cold War, a top secret plan was formulated, called Operation Northwoods. The operation was signed off on by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and made it all the way to President Kennedy’s desk, where he refused to sign off on the diabolical plot. Some of the most disturbing revelations of the op called for U. S. government agents to carry out terrorist attacks within the United States.
‘We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington. The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans en route to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government.’

Boehner Mr Government – Anti We The People

John Boehner is by far the most ruthless head of the Republican Party perhaps in history. He runs the Hill as Speaker in full Dictator mode. The effort to actually punish Republicans such as North Carolina’s Mark Meadows for voting against Boehner is really unprecedented. Boehner previously retaliated and remove several people from chairmanships in any finance related committee who supported Ron Paul. He has actually wages open war trying to raise money separately to target members who disagree with him during the election process. One such person is Walter Beaman Jones, Jr. a Republican from South Carolina. Boehner removed him from the House Banking Committee for supporting Ron Paul, then has engaged twice is supporting challenges to get him out of Congress for actually representing the people in his district rather than goose-stepping to Boehner’s demands. Boehner is so pro-government against the people of the United States, he was invited on Air Force One with Obama – his good buddy.
John Boehner is indeed the most ruthless Speaker of the House since the days of Andrew Jackson. His underhanded dealings on the Hill are more than likely going to result in the SPLIT of the Republican Party for 2016. This is the guy who on the Republican side of the asile is the harbinger of destruction of the United States. He does not believe in anything that remotely speaks of WE THE PEOPLE, but WE THE GOVERNMENT.

The New “Scariest Chart” For American Citizens

For the average American citizen, this may well become the “scariest” chart…
h/t @Not_Jim_Cramer @Lizzie363
Remember, the only truly compliant submissive citizen in today’s police state… is a dead one…
‘Do exactly what I say, and we’ll get along fine. Do not question me or talk back in any way. You do not have the right to object to anything I may say or ask you to do, or ask for clarification if my demands are unclear or contradictory. You must obey me under all circumstances without hesitation, no matter how arbitrary, unreasonable, discriminatory, or blatantly racist my commands may be. Anything other than immediate perfect servile compliance will be labeled as resisting arrest, and expose you to the possibility of a violent reaction from me. That reaction could cause you severe injury or even death. And I will suffer no consequences. It’s your choice: Comply, or die.’ – ”Comply or Die’ policing must stop,’ Daily KOS

The Eight Steps Leading to the Coming American Holocaust (Part Two)

Could genocide ever be carried out against segments of the American people in the modern age? Just asking this question would get some to label the inquiry as ‘fear mongering’ or a ‘conspiracy theory’. However, with the massive military and equipment movements taking place in our country in recent weeks, in conjunction with Jade Helm, some have come to believe that we need to be asking questions, very serious questions like ‘Are we going to witness a genocide on American soil’?
The Milgram Obedience Study
In 1963, Stanley Milgram, a professor at Yale University, investigated the prevailing American belief that a Nazi style genocide could never happen in America. What Milgram found was the two out of three people would unhesitatingly murder an innocent person simply based upon the orders of an authority figure who did not have the ability to threaten the well-being of the subject of the experiment.
Is America following down a path which could culminate in our banker-hijacked government carrying out acts of genocide against select members of its population? There is increasing Internet ‘chatter’ which addresses this topic and many are beginning to discuss the possibility for the first time. I began to wonder the same and began to actually research the patterns of genocide in an attempt to determine if America is in trouble.
The fundamental research question associated with this paper is as follows. ‘Is the United States moving down a predictable path towards genocide based upon Stanton’s thesis?’

American Medical Association Supports the Elimination of Parents’ Right to Make Vaccine Choices, and California Takes Another Step Toward Medical Tyranny

In 2012, then California Assemblyman Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento)1assured Californians that a bill he sponsored (AB2107) to increase child vaccination rates in the state would not remove parental rights to make vaccine choices for their children.
Now a state Senator, he’s singing a different tune. This year he worked with attorney Senator Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica) to fast track a bill (SB277) through the state legislature
The bill would make it virtually impossible for California children to attend daycare or get a school education without receiving more than 40 doses of 10 federally recommended vaccines or filing a medical vaccine exemption granted by a medical doctor.
If the bill is made law, parents and their children will pay a hefty price. As Dr. Pan stated on his Facebook page2 on June 9:
‘it is time for all state legislatures to step in… Yes, parents have the right to refuse vaccination for their children, but to protect other parents’ and children’s rights, these families must then accept the consequences of their decision: no admittance to public preschool, school, college, or workplace. [Emphasis mine] That’s right; unless you vaccinate your child, he or she will be denied a school education from preschool through college. You’ll have no option but to homeschool.
And, it sounds like Dr. Pan is not going to be content with preventing children from getting an education but is also going to lobby to deny employment to adults unwilling to comply with federal vaccine recommendations.
How can this occur in America, ‘land of the free’?

Bad Medicine: Obamacare ‘Doctors Should Warn Global Warming Could Make Patients’ Health Worse’

If having your doctor quiz you about owning a gun isn’t enough to raise your blood pressure, then this new Obamacare policy surely will.
Obama’s White House is once again politicizing health care, even as the net/noose tightens, now asking medical professionals to advise patients on the effects that global warming/climate change will supposedly have on their health.
The Daily Caller reported:
Americans trust their doctors, so the White House wants these medical professionals to be a mouthpiece for President Obama’s global warming agenda.
[…] The Obama administration has been hard at work trying to draw a link between global warming and public health issues. The summit included the U. S. Surgeon General, top administration officials, and public health experts from around the country telling doctors, nurses and other conference goers how to talk about global warming with their patients.
The central message: doctors should warn their patients that global warming could make their health worse.

Leaking Las Vegas: Lake Mead At Record Lows, “We Have To Change”

This is it, warns one water advocate, “it really does (make critical) the fact that we have to start changing.” Lake Mead water levels have sunk to their lowest levels on record (below the levels when the dam was built) at 1075 feet. This is a major problem, as USA Today reports, since Las Vegas water authority’s current “straws” glean water from 1,050 feet and 1,000 feet – leaving the first straw just 25 feet away from pulling in air. With the drought only set to get worse as the summer begins, the water wars are just beginning as Lower-basin states are still taking more than the river system can sustain.

Ban All the Things! Political Correctness Is out of Control

Last week, a devastating tragedy occurred: a white man walked into one of the nation’s oldest black churches, opened fire, and killed nine people.
The suspect, Dylann Roof, has been arrested and charged with nine counts of murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
Roof has been labeled a ‘right-wing terrorist,’ and photos of him holding a Confederate flag and sitting on a car with a ‘confederate states of America’ license plate have emerged.
Two days after Roof’s arrest, a website called Last Rhodesian was ‘discovered’ by two independent writers. The site contains a page titled Text which is being a called a ‘racist manifesto.’ While the identity of the site’s domain was reportedly masked the day after it was registered, law enforcement officials say they have confirmed Roof is the owner. However, there are reasons to be skeptical of that claim because of how the site was ‘found’ and other details surrounding the content on the website.
But government officials and politicians can’t let a serious crisis go to waste. They have a proclivity for using (and orchestrating) tragic events like mass shootings to justify implementing new laws and banning harmless, inanimate objects.
In addition to cries for more gun control (what else is new?), the Charleston tragedy has inspired a call to ban another item: the Confederate flag, and any and all items emblazoned with it.
Controversy over the Confederate flag is nothing new, as many see it as a symbol of oppression and racism. But as Joshua Krause explains in his piece In Defense of the Confederate Flag, there are abundant misconceptions about the history of the flag, the hypocrisy of hating it and not the American flag, and what the flag means to different people today.
Democrat Jim Webb, a former Virginia senator who has long been a historian of the Civil War (and in particular the Confederacy), said the Confederate flag has ‘wrongly’ been used for racist purposes for years, reports CNN:
