12 Doomed Facts About the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald

The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound
When the wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the captain did too
'Twas the witch of November come stealin'
-Gordon Lightfoot, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" (1976)

On November 10, 1975, two ships made their way in tandem across the stormy waters of Lake Superior. One was the Arthur M. Anderson, led by Captain Jesse Cooper. The other, captained by Ernest McSorley, was the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald.

The ship was last seen on radar around 7:15 p.m. All 29 men on board were lost with it, and today, 40 years after the most famous shipwreck in Great Lakes history, the cause is still a mystery.

Here's what we do know about the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald, and what happened to it that fateful day:

Master Kush

Strain Highlights

Master Kush is a popular indica cross created out of two landrace strains from different parts of the Hindu Kush region. Master Kush is bred by the Dutch White Label Seed Company, located in Amsterdam. During maturation the plant produces a subtle earthy, citrus smell with a hint of incense, which is often described as a vintage flavor. The taste of Master Kush is reminiscent of the famous hard-rubbed charas hash. This strain holds a superb balance of full-body relaxation without the mind-numbing effect that many indica strains produce. Instead, Master Kush offers a sharpened sensory awareness that can bring out the best of any activity.

How Jimmy Carter and I Started The Mujahideen

Q: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs [“From the Shadows”], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?

Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul.

35 Countries Where the U.S. Has Supported Fascists, Drug Lords and Terrorists

The U.S. is backing Ukraine's extreme right-wing Svoboda party and violent neo-Nazis whose armed uprising paved the way for a Western-backed coup. Events in the Ukraine are giving us another glimpse through the looking-glass of U.S. propaganda wars against fascism, drugs and terrorism. The ugly reality behind the mirror is that the U.S. government has a long and unbroken record of working with fascists, dictators, druglords and state sponsors of terrorism in every region of the world in its elusive but relentless quest for unchallenged global power.
Shop ?

Behind a firewall of impunity and protection from the State Department and the CIA, U.S. clients and puppets have engaged in the worst crimes known to man, from murder and torture to coups and genocide. The trail of blood from this carnage and chaos leads directly back to the steps of the U.S. Capitol and the White House.

FLASHBACK: Sleeping With the Devil: How U.S. and Saudi Backing of Al Qaeda Led to 9/11

A little disingenuous or CUDP on the blowback angle but I like the pics and the vids!

Preface: The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odom – noted:

Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.

Odom also said:

By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.

FLASHBACK: The CIA's "Operation Cyclone" - Stirring The Hornet's Nest Of Islamic Unrest

FriendsOfLiberty.com
10-27-2

Zbigniew Brzezinski not long ago revealed that on July 3, 1979, unknown to the American public and Congress, President Jimmy Carter secretly authorized $500 million to create an international terrorist movement that would spread Islamic fundamentalism in Central Asia and "de-stabilise" the Soviet Union...
The CIA called this Operation Cyclone and in the following years poured $4 billion into setting up Islamic training schools in Pakistan (Taliban means "student").

Young zealots were sent to the CIA's spy training camp in Virginia, where future members of al-Qaeda were taught "sabotage skills" - terrorism.

Others were recruited at an Islamic school in Brooklyn, New York, within sight of the fated Twin Towers.

Russia’s military is proving Western punditry wrong

A thumbs up review of the Russian Military in Syria, its performance and weapons from the Brookings. Order out of Chaos You all!

Ever since the first indications that there were Russians encamped at the airfield in Latakia, theories have proliferated around Russia’s strategy in Syria, its intentions, and questions on just how far they (and others) will go. There are lots of things that these theories get wrong.

Many analysts have called Russia militarily weak, with some pointing specifically to its shortcomings in air and naval forces in Syria. But based on Russia’s battlefield performance so far, this assessment seems off: To the contrary, Russia has shown that it has the capability and capacity (not to mention willingness) to employ its conventional forces to achieve limited political objectives.

Chinese and Russian Radars On Track To See Through U.S. Stealth

A growing trend in Russian and Chinese radar could make U.S. stealth fighters easier to see and — more importantly — easier to target for potential adversaries, a former senior U.S. Navy official told USNI News.

U.S. fighters — like the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lighting II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) — are protected by stealth technology optimized for higher frequency targeting radars but not for lower frequency radars.

Until now a focus on higher frequencies have not been a problem because low frequency radars have traditionally been unable to generate “weapons quality tracks.”

FLASHBACK: New Russian Stealth Aircraft Uses Plasma Screen

MOSCOW -- The Russian aircraft industry has developed and will soon start producing stealth aircraft which will radically differ from existing U.S. models. The Russian version uses plasma screens to cushion and disperse radar waves, the Novye Izvestia daily reports.

The newspaper quoted Anatoly Koroteyev, the head of the Keddysh Research Center as saying that the plasma screen technology can be used on any vehicle " from automobiles to combat aircraft. However, it is most effective at high altitudes and thus is best used by the air force. http://josephpedepoetry.blogspot.com/2014/04/plasma-cloud-generation-t...

The Many Marvels of the Mysterious Mushroom

Until 1969, biologists thought mushrooms and other fungi were plants. They’re actually more closely related to animals, but with enough differences that they inhabit their own distinct classification.

This and more recent findings about these mysterious organisms illustrate how much we have yet to learn about the complexities of the natural world. New research reveals mushrooms can even help plants communicate, share nutrients, and defend themselves against disease and pests.

The Lewis and Clark Expedition had supplied information useful that helped the Astor party that was guided by William Price Hunt.

ISIS Forces Routed Near the Christian City of Sadad in East Homs

Last week, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) captured the imperative town of Maheen inside the Palmyra Triangle; however, as they prepared for a large-scale assault on the predominately Syriac Christian town of Sadad, the terrorist group did not take in account the level of resistance they would face from the Syrian Armed Forces stationed along the Maheen-Sadad Road.
The National Defense Forces and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party quickly struck back against the terrorist group after they forestalled their advance; this led to the pro-government forces recapturing the Maheen-Sadad Checkpoint and several small hilltops that overlook the town of Sadad from the its eastern flank.

Brutal fight at a Minneapolis McDonald's drive-thru window between staff and customer

You deserve a break today! A broken nose a broken hand.....!

"I was on my way home from Monday night curling league, I hadn't eaten much since lunch time, and I was driving by a McDonald's, so I thought I'd just swing in and pick up a BigMac while I listened to the end of MNF game on the radio.

At first I was annoyed the guy in front of me was taking so long, he seemed pretty upset to begin with, but it looked like when the McDonald's guy handed him his cash and change back he dropped some of the dude's change. That's when he got out of his car, spit on the drive through window and tried to punch the McDonald's and that's when I started recording."

This took place yesterday in Northeast Minneapolis.

Towards a reversal of the situation in the Near East

The days of the « Arab Spring » are almost over. As of now, the White House and the Kremlin are redesigning the contours of the « Greater Middle East ». However, their agreement, which was concluded before the Russian military intervention in Syria, could still be modified by the changes in the balance of power. There is no proof that Moscow will accept the stabilisation of Syria or ignore the partition of Turkey and Saudi Arabia which are soon to begin. In any event, the coming upheaval will modify the status quo which has been in place for the last five years. Most of the powers implicated are therefore scrambling to change sides before the other players.

Arizona's Reefer Mad Bill Montgomery Calls Vietnam Vet An Enemy of The State

Bill Montgomery is a dying breed, the rabid reefer mad prohibitionist.

Following the first night of the show, I got to meet a spry older gentleman with a perma-grin on his face who sort of reminded me of Don Ameche from the movie “Cocoon”. “You know,” another person confided, “that’s the ‘enemy of the state’.”

“Who, Don?” I asked, pointing at the happy silver-haired senior.

When Don said he was also a recreational marijuana consumer, Montgomery said, “Well, then you’re violating the law, and I have no respect for you. And I have no respect for someone who would try to claim that you served this country and took an oath to uphold the constitution and defend against all enemies foreign and domestic, because you’re an enemy.”

Fighting a Cultural Boycott of Israel

with platitudes and willful blindness to historical precedents

snip: Those who first proposed the cultural boycott did not do it out of some anti-Semitic dislike for Israeli artworks, music, literature or theater. They did it because cultural interaction with Israel had not only failed to promote an equitable peace, but in fact camouflaged the policies of a nation-state that practices ethnic cleansing and other destructive policies against non-Jews.

The logical conclusion was drawn that if you want to pressure the Israelis to change their ways, you withdraw from cultural contact and make any reconnection a condition of their getting serious about conflict resolution.

Attempt to boycott Roger Waters show falls flat

Theater offers to refund tickets over musician's anti-Israel stance but performance still sold out

A theater in New York's offer to refund tickets to a sold-out performance by Roger Waters over his anti-Israel activism has been met with indifference as the theater has not yet received any refund requests.

Waters is a longtime vocal critic of Israeli policies, and a proponent of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement and has openly called on fellow musicians to boycott Israel.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center in a statement issued on Tuesday called on New Yorkers “to give Roger Waters the reception he deserves: an empty hall. We urge people who may have been unaware of his hate-filled boycott campaign and bought tickets for his performance, to vote with their feet and instead stand in solidarity — outside of the theater — with the innocent victims of terrorism in The Holy Land.”

An internet row between the father of a fatally shot TV reporter and a Virginia lawmaker escalated all the way to the governor’s office and capitol police.

Stanley Jr., R-Franklin County, commenting critically on virtually every post. This escalated until Tuesday when Parker wrote, “I’m going to be your worst nightmare you little bastard,” and another that read, “When you see me again, you best walk the other way lest I beat your little ass with my bare hands.”

Man who smashed TV with axe believed Holocaust was a hoax

A man who was putting on a “conceptual art performance” in the middle of Ennis, claiming the Holocaust was a hoax, has been sent to jail.

Dermot Mulqueen (49) of Steele’s Terrace, Ennis, was jailed for five months for breaching Section 9 of the Firearms Act and two months for breaching Section 6 of the Public Order Act.

The offences took place at lunchtime on January 23rd when Mulqueen put an axe through a television at the Daniel O’Connell monument in Ennis town centre.

In evidence at Ennis District Court, Mulqueen told Judge Patrick Durcan: “I never realised you could get arrested for swinging an axe into your own TV.”

He said the performance art show, entitled Liberation of the Mind, was carried out to launch International Holocaust Hoax Day.

China Sea Blues: A Thing Not to Do

Fred on War with China.

It appears that Washington, ever a seething cauldron of bright ideas, is looking for a shooting war with China, or perhaps trying to make the Chinese kowtow and back down, the pretext being some rocks in the Pacific in which the United States cannot possibly have a vital national interest.

Years back I went aboard the USS Vincennes, CG-49, a Tico class Aegis boat, then the leading edge of naval technology.

The Navy has not been in a war for seventy years. It has sat off various shores and launched aircraft, but the fleet has not been engaged. Over decades of inaction, complacency sets in. Unfortunately, wars regularly turn out to be otherwise than expected. Further, the American military’s standard approach to a war is to underestimate the enemy (there is probably a manual on this).

The Ancient Esoteric Wisdom of the Hawaiian Huna Philosophy

By Paul Lenda

A long time ago, Hawaii was a mystical and magical place (and still is today in many ways). What made Hawaii especially magical in ages past was that there were shamans called kahunas that lived on its emerald islands. These individuals experienced true nature of Reality, in which they realized several critical defining aspects of reality that were later taught to others in order to guide humanity towards a full Self-realized state of existence.

In the early 20th century, with the rise of New Thought, there was an individual by the name of Max Long who linked the ancient kahunas to abstract and mystical metaphysics he was contemplating upon. He believed the key to Huna is the concept of the ‘ Three Selves’, meaning the unconscious, conscious, and superconscious, which he called the unihipili, the uhane and the aumakua. Also, the word Huna is a Hawaiian word meaning “secret,”but it also refers to the esoteric wisdom of Polynesia.

Thoughts On The American Empire and Its Decline

By Michael S. Rozeff
October 22, 2015

The American Empire is deteriorating. It’s been going downhill for decades. The descent is likely to continue, alleviated irregularly by policies that retard the decline or even reverse it for a time.

The IDEA that there is an American Empire is not widely recognized by the general public.

If the public doesn’t grasp that there is an American Empire, they cannot understand the idea that this empire is declining and headed for greater and greater failure.

“Herodotus believed that there were invariable laws to the rise and fall of empires. Empires rose and fell—as they still do today—because of individual decisions made by individual leaders.

“The greatest mistake made by those in power, like Darius, was the sin of hybris. That Greek word means ‘outrageous arrogance.’

Film: EXPULSION - Syrian Christians under attack from ISIS/FSA and NATO

A documentary short film on Syrian Christians
by Anastasia Popova

Anastasia Popova’s brief documentary film Expulsion (Izgnanie), made for the Russian television channel Rossiia, focuses on the plight of Christians in war-torn Syria. This subject is worthy of greater attention than it has received in the mainstream Western media, hence our effort to subtitle her project.
After all, Christians are one the most persecuted groups in the world. Their depopulation is a general trend in the entire Middle East and North African region (MENA), not just in Syria. This documentary states that, for instance, half of Palestine’s population was once Christian, but now only 5% remain.

Hezbollah attack kills 5 'ISIS' fighters in north Lebanon

Check out this comment in The Jerusalem Post. Bob Ben-Gurion • 2 days ago

Immediately prior to my stint in Vietnam (many, many years ago ... even before many posters here were even born), I was heartened to know that I (and others) had received the very finest “training” that the American military could provide. And that --- coupled with the very latest in weaponry --- caused me to adopt a now-strange feeling of invincibility. The very first time that a VC mortar shell
exploded, some tens of yards from my position, that notion of “invincibility”
immediately evaporated … and I soiled my combat fatigues. Even now, at 67-years old, I will never forget that singular moment in time: the noise, and the
screams, and the smells, and the fear.

But as time went on, and I experienced more and more of those dreadful moments … I got used to it … AND IT WAS THEN THAT I TRULY BECAME A REAL SOLDIER.

KALIBRating the foe: strategic implications of the Russian cruise missiles’ launch

The firing of cruise missiles by the Russian Navy, from the Caspian Sea, was not necessary for its military operation in Syria. However, this convincing show of force, demonstrates Russia’s technical superiority over NATO in this domain. Therefore, the so-called anti-missile shield, currently deployed by the Atlantic Alliance around Russia, is now obsolete.

A massive blow using Kalibr-NK LACMs was struck from the southwestern Caspian Sea. .
The Dagestan, a missile-armed frigate with a displacement of about 2,000 tons, acted as the flagship of the Russian naval assault force accompanied by the small missile patrol ships the Veliky Ustyug, the Grad Sviyazhsk, and the Uglich (with a displacement of about 1,000 tons).

Monster-Steppenwolf

The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem friendly and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind

'Cause the people got fat and grew lazy
Now their vote is like a meaningless joke
You know they talk about law, about order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told

'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'

America where are you now?

Drones Sacrificed for Spectacular Volcano Video

Published on Feb 24, 2015

Video technology and science converge on an active volcano in Vanuatu, where explorer Sam Cossman operated camera-mounted drones to capture high-definition images of the spectacular yet dangerous Marum Crater. Cossman and his team piloted the drones over the 7.5-mile-wide (12-kilometer) caldera while confronting toxic gases and boiling lava. Although two drones succumbed to the harsh environment, the team was able to bring back video and photos that will help scientists learn more about the volcano and the life around it.

Donald Trump says Bowe Bergdahl should have been executed

This guy has lost it. They didn't shoot deserters during Vietnam let alone 30 years ago.The Taliban holding this guy kept getting bombed until they put him in a steel plate cage ie a Faraday cage. Bergdhal was probably an Intel agent and I wish this moron would STFU!

LAS VEGAS – Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Thursday that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl should have been executed for leaving his post in Afghanistan.

"We're tired of Sgt. Bergdahl, who's a traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed," Trump said to cheers at a rowdy rally inside a packed Las Vegas theater at the casino-hotel Treasure Island.

"Thirty years ago," Trump added, "he would have been shot."

Caring for The Greatest, Muhammad Ali

Ali has Pugilistica Dementia.They just use Parkinsons' Syndrome to cover it up.Now its morphed into Parkinsons'disease. So sad! The man took way more punishment in the ring than people will admit. All so some promoters could get super-rich

The caregiver edges closer to her frail loved one, a physically diminished figure of greatness whom she continues to admire, cherish and forever share with the world. Steadfast and selfless, Lonnie Ali has towered in her husband's corner for many long, challenging years. At this moment, a butterfly-shaped cardboard piece designed to enhance fine motor skills gets the best of the man who once stung like a bee, the incomparable Muhammad Ali. Now 72, and in the third decade of a courageous fight against Parkinson's disease, Ali grips the colorful butterfly with a slightly gnarled right hand and tries to aim a string through a hole.

What is THCV and What are the Benefits of this Cannabinoid?

THCV, or tetrahydrocannabivarin, is a compound in cannabis that offers a unique array of effects and medical benefits that sets it apart from other cannabinoids like THC and CBD.

What are THCV’s Effects and Benefits?
As its name suggests, THCV is similar to THC in molecular structure and psychoactive properties, but it provides a variety of pronounced and altogether different effects.
THCV is psychoactive. It intensifies the euphoric high of THC, but with only about half the duration.
THCV is energetic. It provides a clear-headed, stimulating buzz.
THCV is an appetite suppressant. In contrast to THC, THCV dulls the appetite. This may be good for consumers focused on weight loss, but THCV should be avoided by patients treating appetite loss or anorexia.........

The Soviet T-34: The Lethal Tank that Won World War II?

The T-34 had a Christy suspension.An American invention rejected by the US military.

On June 22, 1941, Nazi German launched Operation Barbarossa, a massive attack on the Soviet Union that was the largest invasion in history.

More than three million German soldiers, 150 divisions and 3,000 tanks comprised three mammoth army groups that created a front more than 1,800 miles long.

For months Germans won victory after resounding victory. But then the attack stalled—and the appearance of a new Soviet tank stunned the Wehrmacht.

It was the T-34. The new armored vehicle had an excellent 76-millimeter gun and thick sloped armor and cruised at more than 35 miles per hour. It possessed many advanced design features for the time—and it could blow German Panzers to Hell.

Fraud- Oregon Shooting Hero Chris Mintz October 7, 2015

Another exhibit for the case that the mass shootings are a psy op.

Here's the "hero" of the Oregon campus shooting, Chris Mintz. Mintz is billed as a war vet who was shot five times while rushing the shooter. There's talk that Obama will give this guy a 'Medal of Freedom'.

What kind of person flashes the 'Baphomet' hand sign with their tongue hanging out Miley Cyrus fashion at a hospital? Why are the families of children, sisters, brothers, daughters and sons who've just been shot to death so giddy? To a normal person, or perhaps I should say anyone that's not under the spell of television induced trance, the behavior we witness in these presentations is out of synch to the point of being surreal.

Is the “Truth Bomb” Being Released? – Bill Holter

“Bill, just a thought.
On several occasions you have indicated that at some point Russia (Putin) would be dropping a Truth Bomb aimed at the US.
In light of the recent Russian actions in Syria I would submit that he has just done such.
Let’s look back to last week when Putin addressed the United Nations. He spent some time talking about the Syrian conflict, the Mideast instability and the fallout now enveloping Europe. He put much of the blame on the Western powers and particularly singled out America and implied it’s lack of leadership, motives, nor decisive actions as a root cause. At one point in the speech Putin asked “Do you realize now what you’ve done?” In doing this he asked America directly and Barack Obama specifically, for all the world to hear?

Fake Blood and Blanks: Schools Stage Active Shooter Drills

HMMMM!!! The"shooter" in Oregon was listed as a member of the stage crew at one of the colleges drama productions.

TROY, Mo.—In a cramped, carpeted amphitheater in the basement of Troy Buchanan High School, 69 students are waiting to die.

“You’ll know when it pops off,” says Robert Bowen, the school’s campus police officer. “If you get engaged with one of the shooters, you’ll know it.”

“When you get shot, you need to close your fingers and keep ‘em in,” adds Tammy Kozinski, the drama teacher. “When the bad guy and the police come through, they’ll step all over you, and who will be saying they’re sorry?”

“Nobody!” the students cry in unison.

C.O. police test tactics in 'shooter' drill

BEND, Ore. -

It took months of planning and more than 300 people to prepare Friday's "active shooter" drill on COCC's Bend campus, the largest held in the region.
There were numerous agencies involved and several layers to the scenario. And there were planners and responders who didn't know the details of the drill.

It started in Modoc Hall and extended to Jefferson Hall, where several people were reported "wounded." Police responders were involved after a volunteer made an actual call to 911 dispatch at 9:15 a.m.

"The shooter was actually sprinting to places," said participant Shawn Horton.

How The US Helped To Create Al Qaeda and ISIS

by Garikai Chengu

Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.

The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.

Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980?s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr. Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA and funded by the Saudis, in order to defeat the Russians in Afghanistan.

John Hancock - Smuggling Powerhouse

My kind of American!

John Hancock did not directly participate in the Boston tea party. But he stood to lose the most from the East India Company imports of English tea to Boston. On the other hand Samuel Adams who led the Mohawks aboard the British ships was so close to John Hancock that Bostonians even joked that "Sam Adams writes the letters [to newspapers] and John Hancock pays the postage". You do the math.

After he inherited a fortune in his mid-20s, this elegant dandy nearly single-handedly bankrolled the early protests in Boston.

Checkmate

Putin's key talking points could not but be easily accessible to the Global South — his prime audience, much more than the industrialized West.

1) The export of color — or monochromatic — revolutions is doomed.

2) The alternative to the primacy of statehood is chaos. This implies that the Assad system in Syria may be immensely problematic, but it's the only game in town. The alternative is ISIS/ISIL/Daesh barbarism. There's no credible "moderate opposition" — as there was not in NATO-"liberated" Libya.

3) Only the UN — as flawed as it may be — is a guarantor of peace and security in our imperfect, realpolitik geopolitical environment.

US Funded NGO in Syria Uses Old Photo to Claim Civilian Death in Russian Airstrikes

From the moment the first Russian warplanes started launching attacks inside Syria, a new campaign in the information war was also launched, with various groups trying to get their stamps on conflicting stories about what exactly Russia attacked, whether they hit ISIS, ISIS allies, pro-US rebels, or just random Syrian civilians.

At the center of one of the bigger controversies was the “White Helmets” organization. Formerly known as the Syria Civil Defense, the group is heavily funded by the US State Department, and while the group claims to be purely an aid group, and not to be taking any side in the war, their statements overwhelmingly tow the official US line,

He said that rapidly spreading terrorism, impoverishment, and loss of respect for life has been generated across the Mideast, North Africa and South Asia by regime change wars, or "wars for democracy," which are in violation of that UN Charter and of international law, and that this devastation would spread until it were stopped.

He doesn’t whimper and wriggle and apologize like a puppy who has wet the rug after saying something that upsets the priss spigots. He says, perhaps in different words, what so many want to say. “Stick it where the sun don’t shine.”

It’s wonderful. The Beltway bastards just don’t know what to do about it.

Pope Francis To Meet Man Jailed For Marijuana During US Prison Visit

While Pope Francis has been progressive on many issues, from caring for the poor to protecting our environment, he hasn’t exactly extended his progressiveness to cannabis law reform. In fact, Pope Francis spoke out against legalizing marijuana and ending the Drug War as the Washington Times reported back in June of 2014:

Francis said during a drug enforcement conference in Rome that even the most limited of tries to give legal status to the drug is “not only highly questionable from a legislative standpoint,” but such would “fail to produce the desired results,” AP reported.
