Trump's Grass Roots: Small Donors Flood Trump Super PAC In April

That the Great America PAC raised $514k in April in support of Donald Trump isn't very surprising, what is surprising however, is the fact that 81% of those funds came from donors giving less than $200. The PAC was established in early February, and during that month it raised $74k with just 22% from small donors. In March the PAC gained some momentum, collecting $479k in total donations, but the percentage of small donors was similar to January, coming in at 24%

Portland School Board Bans Literature Denying Climate Change

There will be no more discussion as to whether or not humans are contributing to climate change in the Portland, Oregan public school system, as the school board plans to ban all material that denies the existence of man-made climate change. Although the topic is still being heavily debated within the scientific community, young and impressionable students will now only receive the politically correct side of the issue. ‘Man is causing climate change, no questions asked.’

UN Plots War On Free Speech To Stop "Extremism" Online

The United Nations Security Council wants a global “framework” for censoring the Internet, as well as for using government propaganda to “counter” what its apparatchiks call “online propaganda,” “hateful ideologies,” and “digital terrorism.” To that end, the UN Security Council this week ordered the UN “Counter-Terrorism Committee” — yes, that is a real bureaucracy — to draw up a plan by next year. From the Obama administration to the brutal Communist Chinese regime, everybody agreed that it was time for a UN-led crackdown on freedom of speech and thought online — all under the guise of fighting the transparently bogus terror war.

In An Interesting Turn Of Events, Russia Proposes Joint Missions With US In Syria

In light of all of the recent tensions between the US and Russia, of which there have been many (here, here, here, here, and here), one would assume that Putin wouldn't be interested in working with the US on anything other than steering clear of each other for time being. However, as RT reports, Russia has extended an olive branch with the US. Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu recently told journalists that the US and Russia should fly joint missions together in Syria to fight ISIS.

The Mother Of All Head & Shoulder Patterns Just Completed The Right Shoulder

China was, in essence, the right shoulder to the greatest head and shoulder pattern in the history of mankind.  Central banks and federal governments will do everything in their power to maintain the present system.  They will attempt anything and likely everything to maintain what ultimately cannot be maintained.  Unfortunately, no one knows how much is too much and the economic, financial, and societal ramifications.  Invest accordingly?!?

WTF Headline Of The Day: GOP Senator Says "US Is Under-Incarcerated," Should Lock Up More People

There are 2.3 million Americans in prison or jail. The U.S. has 5 percent of the world’s population but 25 percent of its prisoners. One in three black men can expect to spend time in prison. There are 2.7 million minors with an incarcerated parent. The imprisonment rate has grown by more than 400 percent since 1970, and that increased incarceration has had a very limited effect on crime over the past two and a half decades. So... with that in mind, here is a little more crazy to end the week from Senator Tom Cotton...

Leaking Las Vegas: Lake Mead Plunges To Lowest Level Ever As "The Problem Is Not Going Away"

The hopes of an El Nino-driven refill from last summer's plunging levels of the nation's largest reservoir have been dashed as AP reports Lake Mead water levels drop to new record lows (since it was filled in the 1930s) leaving Las Vegas facing existential threats unless something is done. Las Vegas and its 2 million residents and 40 million tourists a year get almost all their drinking water from the lake; and at levels below 1075ft, the Interior Department will be forced to declare a "shortage," which will lead to significant cutbacks for Arizona and Nevada. As one water research scientist warned, "this problem is not going away and it is likely to get worse, perhaps far worse, as climate change unfolds."

What Does The Next OPEC Meeting Have In Store?

Amid a backdrop of oil prices near $50 per barrel, a sharp drop in Nigerian production due to sabotage, turmoil in Venezuela, Saudi Arabia operating with a new oil minister, and Iran aggressively pumping close to pre-sanction levels; the next OPEC meeting on the 2nd of June will act as little more than a forum for continued altercations between Saudi Arabia and Iran.
