George W. Bush Has Made His Decision On Whom To Support For President

NOBODY! That’s right, nobody!
***
Bad blood between Cruz and Bush go back to when they were on opposite sides of a bitter lawsuit. Bush wanted to spare the life of an illegal alien rapist. Cruz wanted him executed, and Cruz won at the Supreme Court. Texas gave the guy the needle and GWB was still mad. Bush’s words about Cruz? “I just don’t like the guy.”

The decision not to throw his weight behind any single candidate comes a week after 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney – who attacked frontrunning contender Donald Trump – also declined to endorse any single Trump opponent.

Hillary . . . Why Would the Benghazi Mom Have Made Up Her Story?

This is not a rhetorical question.

In (*Wednesday) night’s Democratic debate, Hillary Clinton was asked about how Patricia Smith, the mother of one of the Americans who was killed in the Benghazi attacks, accused Clinton of lying to her at her son’s funeral.

Without skipping a beat, Clinton answered: “She’s wrong, she’s absolutely wrong.”

Now, I have to ask: Why would Smith say it if it weren’t true?

This is not a rhetorical question. I really am asking! I’m a pretty doggone creative person, but no matter how hard I try, I just cannot seem to think of a single reason why Smith would lie about this.

Deutsche Bank Sees 2016 Industrywide Trading Revenue Drop

>Income from equity trading will likely be “moderately lower”
>Bank will pay 2.41 billion euros of bonuses for 2015

Deutsche Bank AG, which runs Europe’s biggest investment bank, said it expects the industry’s revenue to decline this year as clients consider pulling back from trading some fixed-income securities and refrain from doing deals.
***
Germany’s largest lender is first among big firms to offer a full-year forecast amid a global market rout. JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s investment bank said in February that revenue from sales and trading had tumbled about 20 percent so far this year, while Citigroup Inc. said this month that first-quarter revenue from fixed-income and equity trading may drop 15 percent.

Deutsche Bank, which saw a management upheaval in 2015, is seeking to boost capital and profitability to reverse a slump that has made it the worst-valued major global lender

Does Neil Bush Work For Ted Cruz Or Is It The Other Way Around ?

Neil Bush: Trump Can't Survive a One-on-One Race
***
“Well, it’s become very clear to me Neil that Ted is the only guy that can unify our party and we have huge challenges facing our nation. I was excited to see that Paul Ryan wants to lay out an aggressive reform-minded agenda and we need to send to Washington as our chief executive a president that is principled, who is focused on sticking to his principles of conservative leadership and Ted’s the only guy right now in the race that’s left, that has these strong, principled, conservative views,” Bush told the FOX Business Network’s Neil Cavuto.

Bush told Cavuto he hadn’t actually talked about his support of Ted Cruz with his brother yet.

“I did not discuss with my brother Jeb, he may be learning this for the first time watching your show>>>
***

When asked if Jeb was ready to support or endorse anyone, Bush said: “I really don’t know what he is thinking right now. I’m sure he is enjoying his private life. My brother has never made a habit of calling me for political advice, so that probably doesn’t surprise anybody out there.

(*Jeb! , it sounds , probably would have kept a better distance from Neil , instead of the threat Cruz is leveling on the whole world .)

The REAL Ted Cruz EXPOSED

The REAL Ted Cruz EXPOSED – What You DON’T KNOW ABOUT TED!
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), thanks to the failure of fellow Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), is now the establishment’s top choice for President.
Despite Cruz’s conservative rhetoric and willingness to cause problems in the U.S. Senate… this switch was surprisingly easy. What happened?
As perhaps the most infamous Republican insider Roger Stone reports, Cruz is really a Bush… just with a different last name:
***
The Bush-Cruz connection is clear. Ted was George W.’s brain when he ran for president. A top policy adviser, Ted maneuvered for Solicitor General in Bush World but settled for a plum at the Federal Trade Commission. Ted’s a Bush man with deep ties to the political and financial establishment. Ted and wife Heidi brag about being the first “Bush marriage” – they met as Bush staffers. Cruz was an adviser on legal affairs while Heidi was an adviser on economic policy and eventually director for the Western Hemisphere on the National Security Council under Condoleezza Rice.>>>

Euro Dips

Euro dips against dollar, still up for week after Draghi signals end of rate cuts
Dollar broadly higher, but not against yuan after PBOC move
***
The euro fell against the dollar Friday, erasing part of its gain from the prior day, which came as European Central Bank President Mario Draghi signaled further rate cuts were unlikely.

The euro EURUSD, -0.6618% was down about 0.7% to $1.1095, but the shared currency still was on track for a weekly advance of 0.9% against the buck. The shared currency popped 1.8% on Thursday as Draghi indicated that the latest rate cut probably would not be followed with further reductions.

The market on Thursday initially showed a warm reception to the ECB’s aggressive fresh stimulus package intended to boost inflation and reinvigorate a stuttering eurozone economy, pulling the euro down to $1.0821.

BEX Alert!!! - "Iran ordered to pay $10.5 billion for 9/11 by US judge"

A US judge ordered Iran to pay over $10 billion in damages to families of victims who died on September 11, 2001 – even though there is no evidence of Tehran’s direct connection to the attack. The same judge earlier cleared Saudi Arabia from culpability.

The default judgement was issued by US District Judge George Daniels in New York on Wednesday. Under the ruling, Tehran was ordered to pay $7.5 billion to 9/11 victims’ families, including $2 million to each victim’s estate for pain and suffering, and another $6.88 million in punitive damages. Insurers who paid for property damage and claimed their businesses were interrupted were awarded an additional $3 billion in the ruling.

Congress Keeps Holding Repeated, Pointless Hearings Just To Punish The FCC For Standing Up To ISPs On Net Neutrality

In the year since the FCC passed net neutrality rules, ISP allies in Congress have run the agency through an endless gauntlet of show-pony hearings. While most of these hearings profess to be focused on agency transparency and accountability, they're really geared toward one single purpose: to publicly shame the agency for standing up to deep-pocketed telecom campaign contributors. Given the fact the only real way to overturn the rules is for ISPs to prevail in court or via Presidential election, this showmanship has been little more than a stunning display of wasted taxpayer dollars and stunted intellectual discourse.

How Neil Bush Succeeded in Business Without Really Trying

***
Neil Bush, the fourth child of George and Barbara, was long thought to be the rising star of the family. He had the looks, the convivial demeanor, middle-of-the-road politics and, despite suffering from a severe case of dyslexia that made him the laughing stock of St. Albans (the stuffy DC prep school that groomed Al Gore) the brainpower. At least he seemed brighter than Jeb or George Jr. And, most important of all, he was the favorite son of Barbara Bush, the Agrippina of American politics.

All those lofty political aspirations came to a fatal crash in the fall of 1988, at the precise moment his father was poised to ascend to the presidency, when the Silverado Savings and Loan went belly up with Neil in the driver’s seat.

European Central Bank Surprises With Broad Stimulus Action

European Central Bank launched an unexpectedly broad array of stimulus measures Thursday aimed at boosting a modest economic recovery in the 19 countries that use the euro and nudging up dangerously low inflation.

The steps, which ranged from interest rate cuts to cheap loans to banks, included several measures many analysts hadn't anticipated, such as expanding its monthly bond-buying stimulus program to include corporate bonds.

The ECB, the monetary authority for the euro countries, is struggling to raise inflation from a worryingly low annual rate of minus 0.2 percent toward its goal of just under 2 percent, considered healthiest for the economy.

U.S. President Barack Obama is fully committed to pushing for Congress to ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal despite anti-trade sentiment gaining steam on the presidential election campaign trail, National Security Adviser Susan Rice said on Wednesday.

Voter anxiety and anger over international trade and the 12-nation Pacific trade pact have helped propel the campaign of Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner, as well as Senator Bernie Sanders, who is running against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

"The president remains fully committed to working to achieve ratification on the U.S. side and encouraging all of our TPP partners to move through their domestic processes to do the same," Rice told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday.

Trucker pay has plummeted in the last 30 years, analyst says

Pay for truck operators has failed to keep up with inflation since 1980, effectively slashing truckers’ wages by nearly a third, according to analyst Gordon Klemp, president of the National Transportation Institute. Klemp, who spoke Feb. 26 on a conference call with investors and reporters, said truckers wages averaged $38,618 annually in 1980. If adjusted to 2015 dollars, that would be over $111,000 a year, Klemp said...He also noted that both owner-operator income and company driver pay have climbed since 2013, bucking the overall U.S. trend of declining household income in the same span.

The Caddyshack Collapse of the Establishment

***
I completely understand that to Romney and a vast majority of longtime GOP pundits, consultants and elected officials, Trump seems like the Rodney Dangerfield of politics. They likely picture Trump as the late-comedian's iconic character Al Czervik in the 1980 comedy "Caddyshack." In the movie, Dangerfield plays a successful new-to-wealth real estate developer who slings insults at snooty members of an exclusive country club, and ends up in a high-stakes grudge golf match with the club's president.

Of course, Rodney's character prevails only after the groundskeeper, played by Bill Murray, blows up much of the entire golf course, thereby pushing Dangerfield's golf partner's ball into the cup for a last-minute victory. In the instance of Romney -- spokesman for the army of GOP powerbrokers who want to stop Trump -- it is hard to choose which of the movie's characters he would play in a remake. He certainly would be well-suited to portray the image-obsessed club president, who drives his Rolls Royce onto the club grounds and then admonishes the staff. But after Tuesday it might be better to cast Romney in Murray's spot as "exploder-in-chief." >>>

Bundy, 69, is among 19 people, including four of his sons, who were indicted last week in connection with the Bunkerville showdown in 2014.

The confrontation began when the Bundys and 270 supporters, funded in part by the Koch Brothers and their campaign to privatize public land, took aim at federal agents who were trying to collect 20 years of unpaid grazing fees for allowing his cattle to feast on publicly-owned land.

The Bundy gang outnumbered National Park Service rangers four to one and some trained a sniper squad to threaten federal employees.

Cruz' Tax Plan Would Favor The Rich

Cruz tax plan would slash U.S. revenue, favor wealthy: analysis

A tax plan proposed by Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz would cut federal revenues by $8.6 trillion over 10 years, adding substantially to the debt, according to an analysis published on Tuesday by a nonpartisan research center.

Cruz's plan, unveiled in November, would create a flat 10 percent individual income tax that with other changes would mainly benefit high-income households, the study by the Washington-based Tax Policy Center found. (tpc.io/1ToCN7M)

Other changes include repealing the corporate income tax, as well as payroll taxes for Social Security and Medicare, and estate and gift taxes; increasing the standard deduction and eliminating most other deductions except for mortgage interest and charity; and adding a broad-based 16 percent value-added consumption tax.

"The plan would cut taxes at most income levels, although the highest-income households would benefit the most and the poor the least," the Tax Policy Center said.

Investigation of FBI agents involved in LaVoy Finicum shooting shocks justice community

It's drummed into every police officer and federal agent during training: They must report every time they discharge their gun on duty and justify each shot.

So Tuesday's announcement that a member of the FBI's elite Hostage Rescue Team allegedly failed to disclose two gunshots fired at Robert "LaVoy" Finicum seemed inconceivable to former FBI agents and criminal justice experts.

BREAKING: Obama Just Dealt MASSIVE Blow To Oregon Militia Members, LIFE IN PRISON For THESE New Charges

While Obama has illegally ordered the release of drug dealers, Muslim terrorists and illegal aliens from prison, when it comes to white patriots the regime is determined to see to it that they go to prison- for a LONG time. Yeah, that’s who he is- a filthy scumbag.

The Oregon militia members could be facing DECADES in prison under a set of new criminal charges that Obama demanded including additional firearm offenses, theft of public property and damaging a Native American archaeological site, according to The Guardian.

flashback2/25/16: Ted Cruz twists Donald Trump's talk about health care, 'socialized' medicine

http://static.politifact.com.s3.amazonaws.com/rulings%2Ftom-pantsonfir...

In a free-for-all Republican debate in Houston, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz attacked frontrunner Donald Trump for his position on health care.

"For decades, Donald has been advocating socialized medicine," Cruz said. "What he said is the government should pay for everyone’s health care. And in fact, a couple of debates ago, he said if you don’t support socialized health care, you’re heartless."

Did Trump actually say that about socialized medicine? In a Republican debate?

No.

We looked at the transcripts going back a couple of months to the debate in Las Vegas on Dec. 15, 2015. We found Trump never used those words, nor anything close to them.>>>

Senate GOP Not Ready To Embrace Cruz

Senate GOP was quick to reject Trump but not ready to embrace Cruz
***
As hope for Rubio fades, one of Cruz’s harshest critics, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, has softened his tone and urged other Republicans to do the same.

“You know Ted Cruz is not my favorite, by any means,” Graham said Tuesday. “But we may be in a position where we have to rally around Ted Cruz as the only way to stop Donald Trump, and I’m not so sure that would work.”

It is a significant shift for Graham, who has even joked about Cruz being killed on the Senate floor.

Others rejected the idea of warming to Cruz.

Berkeley Law dean takes leave of absence amid allegations of sexual harassment

The dean of the UC Berkeley School of Law will take an indefinite leave of absence from his position as dean — but will remain a faculty member of the school — amid allegations of sexual harassment.

A confidential campus investigation’s findings in July led the campus to determine that Sujit Choudhry’s behavior violated the university’s sexual harassment policies, according to a statement issued Wednesday by Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Claude Steele.

Our Nation Depends on Restoring Product Liability

At the height of its power, ancient Rome created many new technologies which allowed it to become the supreme power over their portion of the world. These accomplishments included the invention of concrete, improved metallurgy, medicine, hygiene, plumbing, and sewage. As each of these were developed, Rome came to be dependent on them. As Rome went into decline, their ability to maintain their technologies started to fade. Aqueducts stopped delivering water. Public health failed. Metal rusted. Concrete cracked. Eventually the failure of those systems on which Rome was dependent hastened its eventual fall.

As Mark Twain said, History doesn't repeat, but occasionally it rhymes, and we are seeing in the United States and indeed the entire world many repeats of that same recipe for decline and fall.

The one aspect I wish to address is the current state of computers and software.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this because once again I have purchased a piece of computer equipment that failed right out of the box. A web search reveals many people are having the same problem I did, yet the item is still on the store racks, with the manufacturer and retailer blaming each other for the problem. At the end, I am out my money, three very frustrating hours, and still did not accomplish the task at hand.

Don't Choose Cruz

Here's a plea to #NeverTrump voters in Florida and Ohio considering voting for Ted Cruz: Don't do it.

For the past several weeks, the Republican establishment has frantically been looking for someone, anyone, who can stop Donald Trump. And of all the GOP contenders, Cruz has demonstrated that he might — just might — be that person. After all, while Donald Trump has won 15 contests and has 458 delegates, Cruz isn't that far behind, with seven wins and 359 delegates. Marco Rubio has won a measly two. John Kasich is 0-for-24.

But here's the thing: Cruz's success has not inspired a single person who has actually worked with him to join his cause.>>>

Why, look: It’s an oil price-rigging revival

Beware, Americans! Wall Street is desperately trying to rig the oil and gasoline markets again.

I’ve been following this scheme for nearly 10 years as speculators, led by the Goldman Sachs gang, tried to convince people that the world is running short of oil and that the price would soon go to $200 a barrel. That would have meant more than $5 for a gallon of gas.

The scam artists even had a fancy name for it: peak oil, a phrase coined by a Shell Oil employee decades before and laid to rest until Wall Street latched onto it.

And just about everyone in the media bought into this cockamamy idea>>>

Trump says GOP opposition to him 'taking advantage of our country'

***

The billionaire businessman called his campaign a movement "of competence and common sense and low taxes and [secure] borders and it would be so foolish to give it away."

Trump was referring to a conference held by the conservative American Enterprise Institute at Sea Island off the coast of Georgia over the weekend, where one of the topics reportedly was stopping Trump from securing the Republican nomination.

***
"I know all these people," Trump told Hannity. "These are people that are taking advantage of our country. They don’t want to have strong borders. They want stuff flowing across the borders. They don’t want to have taxation when countries treat us unfairly because they benefit from that."

"Politicians will do what’s right for the people that gave them the money," Trump added later, "not what's right for the country."

Dear Republicans, It's Ted Cruz

**

Just two weeks ago, there were calls for Cruz to fall in behind Rubio for a unity ticket. Now, it seems very clear that unity will work in the other directions and that if the Republicans have a chance to stop Trump from taking over their party it will be Cruz at the top and Rubio as the junior partner.

The sincerity of Rubio’s attacks on Trump as a “con man” who is unfit for the presidency will be revealed by whether he not only drops out, but if he enthusiastically campaigns for Cruz in Florida for the next five days.

Texan’s wins in Republican presidential primaries don’t lead to endorsements in chamber

WASHINGTON—The Senate’s long-lasting affection for its own members may have reached its limit with the presidential campaign of Republican Sen. Ted Cruz.

Republican senators contemplating a likely choice between business mogul Donald Trump or the conservative, uncompromising Mr. Cruz aren’t ready to coalesce around either as their presidential nominee—despite the fact that the Texas senator is one of their own.

Rubio To Drop Out Before Florida

Fox Business Reports Rubio Will Drop Out Before Florida If Polls Don’t Improve

Citing top Marco Rubio donors, Fox Business reported Wednesday that the Republican candidate will drop out of the presidential race before the crucial Florida primary if his poll numbers don’t increase in that state.

“They’re saying barring some better polling… he will likely suspend before Florida. That’s what his money-men here in New York City are telling me,” host Charles Gasparino reported.

“The feeling is despair,” he said bluntly.>>>

Immigration questions swirl around KCK mass murder suspect

The Mexican man accused of five murders this week avoided deportation despite encounters with police and at least one notification that federal immigration officials didn’t pursue in time.

Wyandotte County officials confirmed Wednesday that after a domestic violence arrest last year, federal immigration officials apparently missed an opportunity to ensure the detention of Pablo Serrano-Vitorino, now accused of killing four people in Kansas City, Kan., and one in Montgomery County, Mo.

A spokeswoman for the Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Office said that after Serrano-Vitorino was arrested in June he said he was born in Mexico. Officials then followed the procedure for any foreign-born person booked into the jail and sent a notice to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The sheriff’s office said its records show that ICE agents did not respond within the prescribed four-hour time frame to the notification.

Pluto - Zionists Support for Hillary Clinton

If the psychopathic war-monger Clinton is crowned the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, there is no way she can be considered the pragmatic ‘lesser evil’ to Donald Trump or any Republican – their bosses decide to spew out. At best, she might be the ‘equal evil’. In this case, more than 50% of the electorate will not vote. If, after being robbed of his growing movement for the Democratic Party candidacy, ‘Bernie’ Sanders does not break out with an independent bid for the White House, I will join the miniscule 1% who vote for Green Party candidate, Dr. Jill Stein.,

Syria’s Truce Bodes Well for Salvaging our Cultural Heritage

There is a growing rising chorus among Sunni and Shia Muslims in Syria and elsewhere rejecting this Shirk idea as applied by ISIS. Many Syrians, especially those under its domination, are accusing ISIS of not defending the true Koranic heritage of the Prophet Mohammad which generally admired and valued and even protected antiquities including Greek and Roman architecture. Rather, ISIS is increasingly be accused of inventing a modernist, opportunistic perverse cult for political and not religious purposes.

Boyfriend ‘waterboarded’ girlfriend to find out whether she was cheating

Dylan VanCamp, from Wisconsin, allegedly carried out the torture technique along with a string of violent and and abusive acts last year.

The 22-year-old faces six charges including suffocation, stalking and battery. He is also accused of throwing a fork at his victim, who has not been named, and attacking her on two other occasions – once where she also fell unconscious.

The victim claims VanCamp, who she had only been dating for one month, waterboarded her in June last year after becoming ‘enraged’ when he saw that she had been speaking to a boy she had known for some time on social media.

Prediction: Trump Will Make His Peace With the War Party

***
And, recently Trump has been striking a conciliatory tone toward the Republican establishment. In his speech following his Super Tuesday victories, Trump stressed that:

“…I’m a unifier. I know people are going to find that a little bit hard to believe, but believe me, I am a unifier. Once we get all of this finished, I’m going to go after one person, that’s Hillary Clinton…”

If Trump secures the nomination, will these gestures culminate in a complete rapprochement between the populist rebel and the Republican establishment? If so, it wouldn’t be the first time.

The National Review crowd bewails Trump’s insurgency as a portent of death for their precious conservative movement and the “party of Reagan.” Yet, it was once the self-styled “conservatives,” including Ronald Reagan and earlier generations of National Review editorialists, who were the populist upstarts against the Republican leadership of the time.

Iran: Oil exports hit 1.8 million bpd

Iran’s oil exports have risen to 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd) for the first time since 2012, Managing Director of the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) Rokneddin Javadi says.

“The rising trend of crude oil exports will continue” in the next Iranian year which begins on March 20, during which total production will rise to 4 million bpd, the Shana news agency quoted him as saying in Tehran Wednesday.

“To materialize future objectives of the National Iranian Oil Company in the oil sector, 2 billion barrels of oil must be produced a year,” he said.

Microsoft wants to monopolise games development on PC. We must fight it

With its new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) initiative, Microsoft has built a closed platform-within-a-platform into Windows 10, as the first apparent step towards locking down the consumer PC ecosystem and monopolising app distribution and commerce.

In my view, this is the most aggressive move Microsoft has ever made. While the company has been convicted of violating antitrust law in the past, its wrongful actions were limited to fights with specific competitors and contracts with certain PC manufacturers.

This isn’t like that. Here, Microsoft is moving against the entire PC industry – including consumers (and gamers in particular), software developers such as Epic Games, publishers like EA and Activision, and distributors like Valve and Good Old Games.
