“All governments had better open their eyes for we are on the brink of a major convergence between both the Cycle of Civil Unrest, Civil War & Revolution and International War.”
170 miles due west of the Yellowstone super-volcano lies the small town of Challis, Idaho – the residents of which have been shaken from a sudden swarm of earthquakes.
They have a historical reason to be concerned: The Challis-Mackay region experienced extensive damage on October 28, 1983, when the Borah Peak earthquake occurred measuring 6.9 on the Richter Scale (originally reported at 7.3).
The happenings of geophysical earth is intertwined in many ways – some of which we know about and others which we have no clue. Given the attention of several recent earthquakes (Los Angeles, Chile, and others) and now this earthquake swarm in Idaho, should remind us of the earthquake hazards that many of us face – hazards which go unnoticed or ignored by most.
We’ve posted before on the top conservative and liberal cities in the United States, the lowest to highest taxes by state, and even polled you for the most pro and anti constitution states, now we ask the question – how free is your state?
Different people value aspects of freedom differently, however I recently came across this rank ordered list of states from the Mercatus Center – George Mason University.
The overall ranking is a combination of freedoms from categories including fiscal, regulatory, personal, economic, liability, property rights, tax burden, and many more.
The top five most free states (according to their weighting methodology)
North and South Dakota, Tennessee, New Hampshire, and Oklahoma.
The least free states (according to their weighting methodology)
Rhode Island, Hawaii, New Jersey, California, and New York.

During April-2014 the Russian military successfully launched and tested a new (mobile launched) multi-warhead ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile) to validate it’s reliability.
An unmentioned number of simulated nuclear warheads landed at an impact range in the Russian Far East of the SS-27 Mod 2 missile (NATO reporting name SS-29) (Russian name RS-24) – Russia’s newest ICBM which has been touted by Russian officials as designed specifically to defeat U.S. missile defenses.
The mobility makes the missiles very difficult to detect and target and is unmatched by the United States.
We are living in an increasingly dangerous world.
The Cliven Bundy ranch standoff in Nevada with the Federal ‘BLM’ agency during April-2014 peaked my curiosity to research how much land in the United States is under the control of the Federal government.
I looked on in amazement as I discovered a map produced by the Bureau of Land Management which shows the extent to which the government controls land mass in the United States – especially in the West…
