By Robert G. Yetman, Jr. As a gun owner, it is incumbent upon you to remain very aware of the laws that pertain to the possession of firearms in each state to which you travel. The simple fact is that gun laws are not the same from state to state…not even close; as a result, it is easy to be an unwitting law-breaker when you take your lawfully-owned and carried firearm from one state into another state. You may remember reading a while back about the case of Shaneen Allen, a Philadelphia mother of two who faced jail time in... Read more →


A few months back I wrote an article about a tremendous new website called Snagshout. In my prior article I detailed how Snagshout works, but I wanted to post a quick update here with a focus on Christmas gift giving. In a nutshell, Snagshout offers products at huge discounts in exchange for the promise of an honest review of the product on Amazon (no, you are not required to write a positive review). I have already grabbed eight products this way (and at ridiculous discounts). I received an e mail yesterday from Snagshout suggesting the idea of using their site... Read more →


By Robert G. Yetman, Jr. Editor At Large I stumbled across this article related to ID theft, and wanted to share it with you. Now that the 2015 holiday shopping season is upon us, and Cyber Monday just a few days away, it is a good time, once again, to address the matter of identity theft. The article is not long, and what I particularly like about it is that it discusses protecting oneself against unwanted online intrusion from the standpoint of mindset, rather than specific tactics. Don’t get me wrong…the specific, “mechanical” measures you take to protect yourself are... Read more →


This year I consider the smartest holiday purchase to be a smart TV. You may already be familiar with my ongoing campaign to show people how to drop cable TV and replace it with free and low cost Internet TV. To grab my free report on how to do this, here is your link - how to drop cable TV. To implement my strategy, you will need either a Roku or an Amazon Fire TV box. There is an exception to this, however, and this is where the smart TV idea comes in. So called smart TVs have the ability... Read more →


While everyone is out battling the crowds at the mall, you can sit home and tap into what I consider to be the best source of Cyber Monday deals. These are deals you will not likely read about anywhere else. My best Cyber Monday shopping tip is to check out the Amazon Warehouse. The truth is that most people have never heard of the Amazon warehouse, and even fewer would consider it a source of deals on Black Friday. Think of it as Amazon's clearance rack, mostly comprised of open box items (and also slightly used merchandise as well). All... Read more →


By Robert G. Yetman, Jr. Editor At Large Amid enormous, worldwide concerns over the threat of ISIS, several passengers on a recent flight from Mexico to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City were able to skip past required customs and security screenings upon their entry into the United States, due to an undefined mix-up at the gate. A total of 13 people out of the 76 passengers and six crewmembers on board American Airlines Flight 1671 from Cancun were inadvertently directed to the domestic terminal area, with some eventually leaving the airport altogether without being properly checked. Although... Read more →


Chicago is on edge tonight as a police dashcam video is being released of the shooting of Laquan McDonald. McDonald, a 17 year old black teen, was fatally shot by Chicago Police officer Jason Van Dyke on October 20, 2014. McDonald was reportedly behaving erratically and wielding a knife when Officer Van Dyke arrived on the scene. Prosecutors say Van Dyke shot McDonald a total of 16 times. The officer has been charged with murder and is being held without bail awaiting trial. Chicago officials are expecting riots upon the release of the video this evening. Read more →


On this episode Jim discusses the plight of thousands of Americans that can not afford medical services due to Obamacare, the media targets Donald Trump again disputing his claim that he saw people in New Jersey celebrating after the September 11th attacks, was George W. Bush right with his doctrine of preemptive strikes? The IRS to begin revoking the passports of individuals with unpaid tax debts, and this year's biggest Black Friday deal. Read more →


From the assassination of Abraham Lincoln to John F. Kennedy, Dr. Ronald Feinman discusses the dark history of threats and assassinations against U.S. presidents. Feinman also discusses little known assassination plots such as the almost successful attempt on the life of Richard Nixon. Also discussed are threats that were not successfully carried out, including threats against President Obama. He also comments on popular conspiracy theories related to the JFK and RFK assassinations, and the attempt on the life of Ronald Reagan. Read more →


By Robert G. Yetman, Jr. Editor At Large More money advice from Robert Kiyosaki. Robert Kiyosaki, the author of the bestselling Rich Dad Poor Dad, has a message for Millennials in his new book, Second Chance: For Your Money, Your Life and Our World. Namely, that instead of following the historically “tried and true” rules like going to school, getting a job, working hard all of your life and saving as much as you can, that younger people should do it all differently now. Now, those who want to get ahead should embrace the reality of low interest rates and... Read more →


by James Warren Published Nov. 24, 2015 9:27 am Updated Nov. 24, 2015 9:29 am Two journalists went on trial at the Vatican today in an unusual proceeding in which they’re accused of illegally publishing claims of Vatican mismanagement based on confidential documents. Reporters Gianluigi Nuzzi and Emiliano Fittipaldi both showed up before the Vatican court and, in theory, could face up to eight years in prison. The Vatican operates a different legal system than Italy and, though there is an extradition agreement between the two entities, it’s unclear if the two journalists could actually wind up in prison if...

In a much-anticipated disclosure, the California Public Employees’ Retirement System said it paid $3.4 billion in performance fees to its private equity managers since 1990 while the controversial sector generated $24.2 billion in profits for retirees. The nation's largest public pension system said the portfolio's profit-generating performance justifies the sector's risks and complexity. "Private equity has the highest net returns in our portfolio," said Ted Eliopoulos, CalPERS' chief investment officer. "As a long-term investor, it is an important piece of our investment strategy and our mission to provide pension benefits for generations to come." via www.latimes.com Jim Paris Comments -...

Turkey May Have Just Started World War III

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the plane had been attacked when it was 1 km (0.62 mile) inside Syria and warned of "serious consequences" for what he termed a stab in the back administered by "the accomplices of terrorists". "We will never tolerate such crimes like the one committed today," Putin said, as Russian and Turkish shares fell on fears of an escalation between the former Cold War enemies. Each country summoned a diplomatic representative of the other and NATO called a meeting of its ambassadors for Tuesday afternoon. Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov cancelled a visit to Turkey due... Read more →


By Robert G. Yetman, Jr. Editor At Large If you’re one who agrees that gun-free school zones actually put kids in greater peril, you might want to think about moving to Ohio. There are now at least 40 districts in the state that allow teachers who have concealed-carry permits to carry firearms while on the job. In many instances, the boards of education that have approved this policy have done so at the insistence of parents who’ve not bought into the idea that their children will be safer at schools where the lawful carry of firearms by appropriately-licensed and trained...
