The Globalist One World Currency Will Look A Lot Like Bitcoin

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com This week the International Monetary Fund shocked some economic analysts with an announcement that America was “no longer first in the world” as a major economic growth engine.

Russia’s ‘Father of All Bombs’

In light of the United States dropping of the MOAB, mother of all bombs, in Afghanistan, let’s take a look at Russia’s analogous weapon. Russia’s version of MOAB is the Father of All Bombs. According to experts, the Father of All Bombs is four times more explosive than MOAB. While the Father of All Bombs is not a nuclear weapon, FOAB’s non-nuclear designation allows it to be applied more liberally. Russia has the potential to deploy the Father of all Bombs without fear of nuclear fallout or International hysteria. Perhaps bombs in the same vein as MOAB and FOAB will become the new norm. After all, what military doesn’t like massive explosions. Visit Sponsors of

Gun Cleaning 101 – Clean Your Guns the Right Way

by Frank Did you know that every time you fire your gun, a small amount of carbon, copper, lead and plastic residue is left in the chamber and barrel? If you don’t take the time to clean your gun after firing it, this residue (known as fouling) can build up over time and eventually have a devastating effect on your gun and effect its reliability. There aren’t any rules for when to clean your gun. Each gun is different and each type of ammunition is different as well, making it impossible to make standard gun cleaning rules.
