The Counterfeit Coin Puzzle

In the video below, we are presented with a version of the 12-coin problem in which we must determine a single counterfeit coin in a dozen candidates. The problem is, we’re only allowed the use of a marker (to make notes on the coins) and three uses of a balance scale. Here are the detailed conditions: 1) All 12 coins look identical. 2) Eleven of the coins weigh exactly the same. The twelfth is very slightly heavier or lighter. 3) The only available weighing method is the balance scale. It can only tell you if both sides are equal, or … Continue reading

Concerned About Eye Floaters?

Eye floaters are spots moving through your field of vision. They may appear black or grey, stringy or cobweb-like, they may move, drift, or dart when you move your eyes. Many eye floaters are brought on by age-related changes in the eyes – for example, when the jellylike substance of the eye becomes liquefied. If eye floaters appear and increase quickly or suddenly, you should see an eye specialist right away. There are many different reasons for eye floaters. Some are harmless and others require immediate medical attention. The following natural remedies may help you get rid of eye floaters. … Continue reading

Obama Power Grab

The ruling establishment has responded to Donald Trump’s election by laying the groundwork to federalize, and thus control, future elections. Read Tyler Durden’s report. The federal government does not have the constitutional authority to administer elections, only to set the date. The Obama regime’s designation of elections as “critical infrastructure” seems to have no function other than to put in place a way to prevent voters from overthrowing an entrenched establishment, as the establishment fears the voters did when they elected Trump president. The disturbing question is: Why do it now after Trump’s election? Could there be a plot to … Continue reading

Our Deadly Enemy

In October, I published an article about Angelo Codevilla’s article, “After the Republic.” He has done it again. I have worked with him for over 40 years, when we were both on Capitol Hill as researchers. I regard him as the smartest guy in the conservative movement. His specialty is foreign policy, but in recent years, he has become the top political analyst. His latest essay is “The Rise of Political Correctness.” Download it here. (Print it out at 80%.) He is a scholar. He is going to take you through the labyrinths of communist history. He takes us back … Continue reading

Hurrah For Weeds, Coyotes, and Rattlesnakes

A friend of mine recently got a warning from City of Tucson that someone “reported” tall weeds in his yard. Oh, you didn’t know that weeds (or any plant the city and its snitches thinks is one) taller than 6 inches is illegal? Now, I don’t know if they’re worried about “assault weeds” with high-capacity seed pods or what. All I know is that the notice my buddy got said a city inspector didn’t even come out. They just accepted the report from some anonymous snitch and mailed out the decree from the government. He called and was told that the … Continue reading

Ancient Precedent for the EU

History repeats because the human emotions and passions of humanity NEVER change. Without going into all the numerous attempts of trying to create standards, which in fact was the root idea behind the euro to combine the European currencies to compete with the dollar, let us turn to Greece, which was the first state to crack in the Eurozone. Myths, Misunderstandings and Outright lies about owning Gold. Are you at risk? The Athenian coinage decree standardized currency among all the city-states that were allied with Athens. Between the years of 450 and 447 BC, the use of Athenian silver currency … Continue reading

Why Donald Trump Is Obama’s Logical Successor (And How an App Might Help)

Establishment Republicans have been beating their breasts over Trump’s election no less than Hillary’s supporters, bewildered that a man so beyond the pale could have been the Republican nominee, much less President-elect. Chief among their theories is that a stronger national committee mechanism to identify and back their favored (read: establishment-representative) candidate for the…

Another Shooting in a “Gun Free” Zone

The tragic shooting at the Fort Lauderdale airport on January 6 occurred in a “gun-free” zone. Florida is one of six states that make it illegal for individuals–even those who have concealed carry permits–to carry guns in any part of an airport terminal. The killer’s motive is at this point undetermined, but he did…
