Want to know why Attorney General Loretta Lynch isn't indicting Hillary Clinton for her email practices? An unsigned viral image posted on Twitter by a self-proclaimed "news organization" suggests an explanation. It shows pictures of Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, who had a controversial meeting with Lynch as his wife was under investigation by the FBI, with the words, "Fun fact of the day. Lynch was a member of Bill Clinton's defense team during the 1992 Whitewater corruption probe." That factoid was debunked years ago. PolitiFact, for one, gave it a Pants on Fire in …

Monetizing Racism and Terrorism
July 8, 2016, 5:51 am

Five cops dead, half a dozen wounded at a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Dallas.  Snipers took out the cops. Another half-dozen wounded. There is a very simple test one can apply when trying to sort out complex questions like those raised by the assassinations overnight:  When does this become domestic terrorism? ?18 U.S.C. § 2331 defines “international terrorism” and “domestic terrorism” for purposes of Chapter 113B of the Code, entitled “Terrorism?: “International terrorism” means activities with the following three characteristics: ?Involve violent acts or acts dangerous to human life … Continue reading

Increase Vitamin Intake With This DIY Tea
July 7, 2016, 6:27 am

pine needle tea
Pine needle tea is made from, you guessed it, pine needles. The drink is loaded with vitamin C and vitamin A, it acts as a decongestant, and it also quenches thirst. Learn how to make pine needle tea and add it to your growing list of survival skills.

Gather Needles

Pick one or more cups of fresh pine needles. The greenest ones are best. Rinse the needles with clean water to remove all dirt before chopping them into pieces with a clean knife or any other applicable tool you have.

Boil Water

Heat water to a rolling boil in a saucepan or (again) whatever you have that works. Place pine needles in your mug or cup and pour the water over them. Make certain all faded and damaged needles are removed before you pour the water.

Stir and Steep

Stir the needles until they pale in color, or allow them to simmer on a low temperature for about 20 minutes if you have the resources. Cover the mug and let the tea steep for another 20 minutes.

Add Lemon and Enjoy

Add lemon or honey to your tea and enjoy once it once it?s cooled a bit! You may want it to steep overnight, as it will be stronger and more nutritious. Steeping pine needle tea overnight turns the liquid a reddish color.

There you have it: an easy way to make pine needle tea!
