The Dark Forces Behind America’s Racial Jihad

The recent racial hysteria that has engulfed Ferguson, Missouri, and other parts of the United States has shown that Islamist-type jihad is not the only kind of “holy war” plaguing America. The unspoken jihad - or intifada - that plagues America is a racial jihad engendered by radical black urban racial terrorists. This jihad is created, nurtured, perpetrated and perpetuated by the unholy trinity of the mainstream media, black supremacists, and cowardly, spineless and feckless white politicians. And it is a jihad that threatens to engulf America into a racial firestorm not seen since the War Between the States (a.k.a., the Civil War).

It’s official: America is now No. 2 Economy

Hang on to your hats, America. And throw away that big, fat styrofoam finger while you’re about it. There’s no easy way to say this, so I’ll just say it: We’re no longer No. 1. Today, we’re No. 2. Yes, it’s official. The Chinese economy just overtook the United States economy to become the largest in the world. For the first time since Ulysses S. Grant was president, America is not the leading economic power on the planet. It just happened — and almost nobody noticed.

The document has been shared with Congress, where lawmakers already are nervous about the administration’s handling of the Ebola outbreak.

By exposing skin cells to a particular combination of cell programming molecules, scientists managed to convert them into brain cells that behave like native cells. The study is unusual because, unlike many cell conversion techniques, the cells did not return to a stem cell stage first - they converted directly into brain cells - thus avoiding the risk of producing many other types of cells.
