Govern America | September 12, 2015 | Cyber Posture

Hosts: Darren Weeks, Nancy Levant

 

Is the United States government standing down aerial surveillance along the east coast? If so, why? We have the bulletins and the questions. This "military exercise", which apparently could put aircraft in jeopardy, comes among heightened tensions. Russian ships were spotted on the east coast near U.S. nuclear submarine areas. Chinese ships were also spotted 12 nautical miles of American soil in Alaska. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew issues a warning, as media lapdogs and globalist banker organizations continue promoting integration. Over 94 million Americans have been forced out of the labor force, with many having no income at all. We discuss the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, touching upon their board members and their purpose. Former U.S. Treasury Secretaries laugh at the victims of income inequality, a problem they created, while Warren Buffett says we should send unskilled poor people off to die in war. Also, wood-burning stoves: Get 'em while their hot! EPA's ban on them takes effect soon. Plus, we do a deep dive on the Office of Personnel Management's (OPM) database breach, which has turned out to be a far worse national security disaster than anyone has been told.
