A huge pyramid in the middle of nowhere tracking the end of the world on radar. An abstract geometric shape beneath the sky without a human being in sight.

IRS set the fine at $96, or 1 percent of the reported adjusted gross income,Read More
We couldn’t agree more. It is now quite clear that the Ukrainians shot the plane down, possibly in collusion with Western intelligence agencies. The orchestrated media campaign unleashed after the incident is damning enough on its own, and will rank as one of the most shameful media shams of all time – Goebbels, William Randolph Hearst, and the Spanish-American war included. .
