Now Mitt Romney Might Run for President? Says "Phony" Trump Is "Very, Very Not Smart," Leading America into the "Abyss"

Are the pathetic losing pile of whiners left at the GOP actually going to attempt to run Mitt Romney now to try and counter Donald Trump?

Milktoast doesn't even begin to describe what the average American conservative thinks of Mitt, but here we see him giving grand speeches lately (video below) as if he's actually going to step in and run now. Others have brought up the point that there might be a brokered Republican convention during which all of the other losing candidates' votes could be put together in a basket and handed merrily to the candidate of the establishment GOP's choosing if they don't like who the people pick (and who is, quite obviously at this time, Trump)...

But could they really stoop to such a desperate, toilet bowl-level low as to run back to lukewarm magic Mormon underwear Mitt?

Assemblyman demands college fire professor who blames Jews for 9/11

US presidential hopefuls must demand that ultra-liberal Oberlin College axe its professor who’s posted hateful screeds to social media, including that “Israeli and Zionist Jews” were behind 9/11, a New York state lawmaker urged Wednesday.
Responding to The Post’s story about associate professor Joy Karega, Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) said both Republican and Democratic candidates must “stand up against this kind of hatred”
Note: Dov Israelis were arrested and failed a lie detector! Other Israelis fled to Israel.

Professor Says Jews Are Behind 9/11 Attacks and She's Keeping Her Job

The president of ultra-liberal Oberlin College is standing by the professor who has been posting a slew of anti-Semitic rants and bizarre 9/11 conspiracy theories on social media.
Note: It is not anti-Semitic to state that Israelis were arrested on 911. The anti-Semitic card is getting as worn out as the holocau$t!

Texas GOP Head Twitter Rant Goes Viral: Barbara Bush Should Be in Porn, Hillary Made Bill Abandon His Love Child with Black Hooker, and WORSE

The palpable outrage within the Texas Republican establishment has gone nationwide as the man who has been called a "human dumpster fire" has just been voted as the new head of the Travis County GOP and is set to take office in June.

Libertarian Robert Morrow, the newly elected chairman of the Travis County Republican Party (Travis County being the home of Austin, the Texas state capitol) is shocking people with his often vulgar comments about the Bushes, the Clintons, and even his own party, spurning calls for his removal by multiple Texas officials including Governor Greg Abbott who said Morrow “cannot adequately represent the Travis County GOP” or speak for its values.

Morrow won the position fair and square with 54% of the vote, but now even Morrow's vice chair, GOP strategist Matt Mackowiak, is claiming he will "not rest" until he finds a way to unseat Morrow who is an "absolute embarrassment to the party".

BEX Alert!!! - "US House panel wants to try Assad, Russia, Iran for ‘war crimes’ in Syria"

The US House Foreign Affairs Committee has passed a resolution accusing the Syrian government, Russia and Iran of war crimes and calling for an international tribunal on Syria. The move comes amid a breakthrough US-Russia deal on a Syrian ceasefire.

The document passed on Wednesday claims that the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad is guilty of “widespread torture and rape,” and its forces “massacred civilians, including through the use of chemical weapons, cluster munitions, and barrel bombs.”

Moscow is accused of “violations of international law by leading deliberate bombing campaigns on civilian targets including bakeries, hospitals, markets and schools."

Nationwide Blackout: All the Power in Syria Just Went Out

In addition to the power being out, many mobile Internet connections were also reportedly not working across the nation, with Syria's mobile provider claiming this was "partially due to 'part of the network unexpectedly malfunctioning'."

And that's how easy it is to cut off an entire country's electricity and Internet.

Gee... what are the odds of this timing? Hollande, Merkel, and David Cameron are all set to meeting with Putin tomorrow ahead of Geneva peace talks March 9th.

Call It What It Is: America Is a Police State

snip: The relatively recent concept of “pain compliance,” “rough interrogation,” and “rough rides” coupled with the long held tradition but fast increasing commonality of direct beatings, shootings, murders, and “on-site executions” by police in America have had the final say. Since 2003, police have killed more American citizens than were killed by “insurgents” in Iraq, a country whom the US invaded illegally and subsequently imposed a reign of terror upon.

The United States is now a country where millions of people are locked away in inhuman conditions of confinement, the overwhelming majority of them for crimes in which there was no victim.

Charges Finally Coming for Hillary? Staffer Who Set up Her Server Just Given Immunity

The question has always been, will the system somehow find a way to allow Hillary to get away with it like an elite magical fairy princess, or will she actually have to face charges for her crimes the way the majority of the rest of us would if we had done the same thing (or way, way, way, way less).

Well now the Justice Department has granted immunity to a former State Department staffer named Bryan Pagliano who set up Hillary's private email server in 2009. After he set it up, Hillary then paid him personally to maintain it for her.

Pagliano had previously invoked his Fifth Amendment rights before a Congressional committee last fall; now he has immunity and will testify.

The Clinton camp released a statement saying Hillary is cooperating and they're all "pleased" with this new development, again referring to the whole thing as an "inquiry" and not an "investigation". They've also called it a "security review". Ah, semantics.

US Missile Defense Outdated, Unable to Withstand New Challenges

The global geopolitical environment has changed, but the US missile defense strategy has stayed the same, making Washington vulnerable to new nuclear challenges, a US analyst wrote. The US has invested billions in missile defense technology because it believes that the capability to defend against ballistic missiles will help mitigate nuclear risks to Washington and its allies in the 21st century, Sputnik reported. The approach is based on the 2010 Ballistic Missile Defense Review (BMDR) which may now prove to be ineffective, Ivanka Barzashka, a nuclear security specialist at Stanford University, wrote in an article for The National Interest. The author pointed out that the three basic premises of the posture are now being challenged by a new strategic environment...

The Shoplifting Problem in the Nation

Shoplifting is our nation’s “silent crime”. Parents don’t want to believe it, schools don’t address it, retailers don’t want to talk about it, police don’t respond to it, courts don’t want to deal with it and the people who do the shoplifting either rationalize it as “no big deal” or are too ashamed or too afraid to admit it.

(*Or just can't afford things they need in this sorrowful economy .
When my son was really young , my wife would give me a twenty dollar bill , and a fifty dollar list to fill . I'd consider baby aspirin 'into pocket' , box of disposable diapers 'into shopping cart' , etc.

The proposals include requiring "...price transparency from all healthcare providers, especially doctors and healthcare organizations like clinics and hospitals.>>>

Wall Street Readies Big Trump Assault

,strong>Anti-Trump super PAC source says billionaire Paul Singer will make sure it has all the money it needs.

NEW YORK — Wall Street is getting ready to go nuclear on Donald Trump.

Terrified that the reality TV star could run away with the Republican nomination and bring his brand of anti-immigrant, protectionist populism to the White House, some top financiers are writing big checks to fund an effort to deny Trump a majority of delegates to the GOP convention.

The effort is centered on the recently formed Our Principles PAC, the latest big-money group airing anti-Trump ads, which is run by GOP strategist Katie Packer, deputy campaign manager for Mitt Romney in 2012.

The new development is not a good sign for the Democratic presidential front-runner, though there is still no indication that any criminal charges will be brought against Clinton.

Hiding Behind Cruz NATIONAL REVIEW Calls on Rubio to Leave the Race

Cruz Calls on Rubio to Leave the Race
It didn’t shake out exactly how Cruz and his inner circle had envisioned. Yes, he won his home state of Texas, sweeping all of its 36 congressional districts and all but six of its 254 counties, he won Oklahoma, and, in the wee hours of the morning, he narrowly defeated Trump in the Alaska caucuses. But for a candidate who’d hoped to coast to the nomination on a wave of momentum from Southern Evangelicals, it was a disappointing finish, relatively speaking.>>>
***
“Tonight, this campaign enters a new phase,” Cruz told his supporters. It was more wish than fact. He made the case for his wish, for the field to winnow to two candidates: “Tonight was another decision and the voters have spoken,” he said. He asked his non-Trump challengers to “prayerfully consider” uniting behind him for the good of the GOP.

(*In this article , that's all I found that Cruz actually said . The NATIONAL REVIEW took the liberty to take aim at Rubio , and perhaps , send him a message ?)

Call It What It Is: America Is A Police State

Op-Ed by Brandon Turbeville

Over the years in my own articles, I have used the terms “creeping fascism,” “growing police state,” and “descent into totalitarianism” among others to describe the domestic situation in which we find ourselves. I have often written that, if Americans do not stand up to the myriad of laws being passed by federal, state, and local governments we will soon wake up to find ourselves in an Orwellian police state nightmare.

Now, however, I cringe whenever I read those words in contemporary articles. This is because such warnings are so far past their time they are utterly useless...

Here’s One Big Reason Voters Are Angry and Turning to Trump

***
Americans today worry that income inequality is becoming more pronounced, and that upward mobility is on the decline. Democrats have made this a centerpiece of their campaign, but they are in fact the architects and defenders of one of the pillars of those troubling trends. Democrats, and their allies in the teachers unions, ignore the collapse of our public education system, which no longer prepares kids for success in today’s workplace. As our economy becomes more dependent on technology and more stratified by academic achievement, our schools have not kept pace. Entire communities unable to read and to perform basic math are being left behind. That is what the educational establishment is doing through its defense of its indefensible failures.

British Troops Headed to Tunisia to Keep ISIS Off Libya Border

British Defense Minister Michael Fallon today announced that his nation will be sending a team of ground troops to Tunisia to join that nation’s Libyan border defense operations, aiming to keep ISIS from infiltrating across the border.

The first deployment will be only 20 troops, nominally “trainers,” but Fallon talked up the need to keep ISIS out of Tunisia and hinted that this might just be the first step, adding that Britain is also “urgently” helping to try to form a new unity government in Libya.

Fallon also suggested that once there was a new government in place in Libya, Britain would be open to more expansive military action there, at the invitation of this new faction they are working to install.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, terrific: after the US epic fail in Libya, now the UK's military wants to have a "go" at installing a western-centric government there, a "reconquista", if you will.

Good luck with that!!

And a small memo to British Defense Minister Michael Fallon: those who do not understand history are doomed to repeat it, and it appears, sir, that you are moving quite rapidly in that direction right now.

Remember how the American military involvement with Vietnam started?!? By the embedding of US "advisors" with South Vietnamese troops.

And you do recall just how that war ended for the US?!? The word "horrifically" just doesn't even begin cover it.

I know this announcement calls for just a handful of troops, so that you can "sell" this successfully back home in the UK. But trust me; ultimately, this war for the resources of Africa, which the US and UK both covet, will involve thousands of UK (and probably US) troops, with much blood and money spent.

But at the end of the day, as happened in Vietnam, you may well be no less able to control the geopolitical outcome here that was the US able to do in Vietnam.

I would strongly urge you and caution you, please, to reconsider this deployment; because when a country is fighting a war, in order to win, it has to be on the right side of history.

This is something no military or civilian leader of any country should ever, ever forget.

Pentagon OKs $683 Million Smart Bomb Deal for Turkey

Last December, the Turkish government deployed a battalion of 25 tanks and roughly 1560 troops into northern Iraq. Acting without Baghdad’s permission, the move was roundly condemned as a breach of sovereignty. Ankara has also been engaged its own internal war against Kurdish communities in the country’s southeast, with the death toll reaching some 5,000 people.

Russia Backs Baghdad's Demands for Turkish Troops Removal From Iraq's North
Now, with all parties honoring the Syrian ceasefire, Turkey is threatening to plunge its neighbor back into the five-year civil war.
"[The Turkish government] view themselves as victims and losing parties in the Syrian war," Germany’s Telepolis magazine noted. "For this reason they will resort to provocations until the ceasefire is shattered."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported by http://en.trend.az/world/turkey/2501623.html:

This is the first such sale to Turkey by US defense contractors, and Ankara expects the transaction to be completed by 2020. Despite its continuing aggression, Turkey is a key NATO ally, so Washington’s complicity in Ankara’s actions do not come as a surprise.

As indicated, although the delivery of these weapons will not happen for another 4 years, the message it sends is, "Erdogan, please just continue to attempt to destabilize Syria, and we will reward you for it."

And Turkey's Prime Minister Davutoglu has stated very clearly that Turkey will not observe the cease-fire. As reported at http://www.trunews.com/turkey-says-they-wont-honor-syrian-ceasefire/?utm...

Turkey is declaring they will not honor the upcoming Syrian ceasefire, claiming dissatisfaction the agreement does not acknowledge the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia as a terrorist group. Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu threatened that Ankara will take action against the Kurds if they deem it necessary, as reported by TRUNEWS. “The ceasefire is not binding for us when there is a situation that threatens Turkey’s security, we will take necessary measures against both the YPG [People’s Protection Units] and Daesh [Arabic acronym for Islamic State] when we feel the need to,” Davutoglu said to CNN Turk. The U.S., an ally of Turkey, considers the YPG to be an important key to winning the Syrian civil war, which has complicated the crisis. Turkey has been shelling the YPG, which operates near its border, fearing the Turkish Kurds (PKK) could get involved as they have sought autonomy for decades. The Russians believe Turkey is making things worse and accuses Ankara of having “imperial ambitions”, according to RT

Chemical Safety Bill Could Help Protect Monsanto Against Legal Claims

Facing hundreds of millions of dollars in lawsuits, the giant biotechnology company Monsanto last year received a legislative gift from the House of Representatives, a one-paragraph addition to a sweeping chemical safety bill that could help shield it from legal liability for a toxic chemical only it made.

Monsanto insists it did not ask for the addition. House aides deny it is a gift at all. But the provision would benefit the only manufacturer in the United States of now-banned polychlorinated biphenyls, chemicals known as PCBs, a mainstay of Monsanto sales for decades. The PCB provision is one of several sticking points that negotiators must finesse before Congress can pass a law to revamp the way thousands of chemicals are regulated in the United States.

WOW!

If you are a US corporation, it must be great to be able to buy US legislators, and get them to protect you from the huge, vast evil it has done, and is still doing, with chemicals which are known carcinogens!!

Pensions In The Netherlands: Sailing into rough waters

***
Seafaring sayings seem particularly apt, as after a year of lacklustre returns Dutch pension funds once again find themselves in troubled waters. In just the first six weeks of 2016, many of the country’s largest schemes saw their funding rates plunge by as much as 10 percentage points to around 90% – dangerously close to the critical level where benefit cuts can no longer be avoided. The combined effects of sinking markets and falling interest rates are putting pressure on a defined benefit (DB)-based system already facing strong headwinds.

They said that unless he signed their pledge, he would run as a third party candidate if he did not win the nomination. He would hurt the party. He would fracture the vote and ensure whoever did win the nomination could never win the general election.

Being the bigger man, the adult in the room, the serious one among them, Mr. Trump signed their silly little pledge and officially joined the Losing Club for Losers.

Ever since, he has put on an clinic on how to win. How to win debates, how to win shouting matches, how to win news cycles, how to win insult face-offs. And how to win in polls and how to win in primaries.

He wins among rich and poor, whites and Hispanics, educated and uneducated. He is just winning so much that we are almost tired of winning already.

Facebook Latin America’s Boss Arrested In Brazil

Police in Sao Paulo have arrested Facebook’s most senior executive in Latin America in the latest clash between Brazilian authorities and the social media company its refusal to provide private information about its users to law enforcement.

A Tuesday news release says that Facebook’s vice president for Latin America, Diego Dzodan, was arrested on an order from a judge in the northeastern state of Sergipe. Dzodan is accused of ignoring a judicial order in a secret investigation involving organized crime and drug trafficking.

The decision by Judge Marcel Montalvao follows the company’s refusal to surrender user information from the WhatsApp messaging service, an application Facebook bought in 2014.

Super Tuesday Results: The Trump Nightmare Continues

Mathematically, it should be pointed out, Trump can still be denied. If Cruz or Rubio dropped out today and the non-Trump forces united behind the remaining one of those two candidates, there are enough delegates left in Florida, Ohio, New York, and California for someone else to win the Republican nomination—or, at least, to force a floor fight at the Party convention, in Cleveland. But given the scale of Trump’s victories during the past few weeks, and given the fact that Cruz and Rubio both seem certain to keep going for a while, he is close to becoming the presumptive nominee. A win over Rubio in Florida, on March 15th, would give him that status.

After yesterday’s votes, only Trump has won primaries (or caucuses) in three regions of the country: the South, the West, and the Northeast. He combines an outsider’s aura with the ability to draw support from several different parts of the Republican coalition and to bring in new voters.

(*Nightmare ? What kept me tossing and turning all night was the idea of Punk @$$ Rubio 'winning' through vote fraud )

LEGENDARY U.S. ATTORNEY 'CONFIDENT' HILLARY GRAND JURY CONVENED

Former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova is confident Department of Justice prosecutors have convened a grand jury in the Hillary Clinton email case, based on comments from Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Lynch was interviewed Monday on Fox News’ “Special Report with Brett Baier.”

DiGenova, who was U.S. attorney for Washington, D.C., for four years, during which time he handled cases involving international drug smuggling, espionage, insider trading, public corruption, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and more, also told WND he was confident the FBI is in the process of developing a solid criminal case against Hillary Clinton.

If there’s no prosecution, said diGenova, who served as chief counsel for the Senate Rules Committee as well as counsel to the Senate Judiciary, Government Affairs and Select Intelligence committees, there will be “an eruption you cannot believe” within the intelligence community.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forget the intelligence community. If there is no prosecution of Hillary the entire populace will erupt!
