Obama Strikes Back! President To Force US Into New International Carbon Market

Even though Obama’s Cap and Trade schemes have failed to pass several times here in the United States, it appears the President is now getting ready to strike back at his detractors.

According to Bloomberg Business, the Obama administration is planning to force the U.S. into helping create and participate in a new international carbon market in order to hasten the transition to a carbon free economy:

An End to the Right’s Reign In Spain?

“Volatile” seems to be the adjective of choice for pollsters going into the Dec. 20 Spanish elections, a balloting that will likely not only change the face of politics in the European Union’s (EU) fifth largest economy, but one that will have reverberations throughout the 28-nation organization. Long dominated by two parties—the right-wing People’s Party (PP) and the center-left Socialist Workers Party—the political landscape has atomized over the past two years. “For the first time in general elections in Spain,” says Manuel Mostaza Barros of Sigma Dos poll, “we have four parties polling above 15 percent when it comes to voter intentions.”

Undocumented Citizen? The Absurd New Word for Illegal Aliens

This is the inevitable endpoint of politically correct language. Some of us are so sensitive that we can no longer use words that make sense. There is no such thing as an undocumented citizen. Someone who is not documented, is by definition, not a citizen. Don’t tell that to the Nicole Mehta, head of the university’s Common Ground Multicultural Dialogue Program. She claims that the term undocumented citizen was determined by students through surveys and focus groups.

W.H. Press Secretary Can’t Explain How Regulations Will Stop Mass Shootings

Like a true tyrant, Obama doesn’t have a good explanation for why our rights need to be discarded, or how that might benefit us in any way. On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked about the Obama Administration’s gun policies. Specifically, a reporter pointed out that none of Obama’s proposals would have stopped any of the mass shootings we’ve had. Here’s the answer Josh Earnest gave (or I should say, the answer he didn’t give because he completely dodges the question).

Trump: Hillary has ‘killed hundreds of thousands of people’

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is pinning blame for the Syrian civil war and the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“She is the one that caused all this problem with her stupid policies,” Trump said on “Fox News Sunday.” “You look at what she did with Libya, what she did with Syria.”

“You look, she was truly, if not the, one of the worst secretary of States in the history of the country,” he added. “She talks about me being dangerous; she’s killed hundreds of thousands of people with her stupidity.”

SIX COLOMBIAN MERCENARIES, AUSTRALIAN COMMANDER SLAIN IN YEMEN

The first fatalities among the United Arab Emirates’ mercenary army were reported last week in Yemen, where six Colombian fighters and their Australian commander were slain in combat with the Shi’ite Houthis. Details are scant on where the incident took place, but the UAE last month was reported to have sent “hundreds” of Colombian mercenaries into Yemen to try to break a stalemated conflict between the Saudi-led forces in the south and the Shi’ites in the north.

IN RAHM EMANUEL’S CHICAGO SURVEILLANCE STATE, CONTROLLING THE DATA IS KEY

POWER CIRCULATES DIFFERENTLY in the digital age. It’s all about controlling the digital traces — collecting, mining, sharing, exposing, delaying, or erasing the data. Inevitably, some handling will occur in ordinary politics. But when the data are manipulated in order to obstruct criminal justice or steal an election, then it’s no longer ordinary politics; it becomes a cover-up. With each new day, there is growing evidence of a cover-up in Chicago.

US AND TURKEY CAUGHT COVERING UP ISIS OIL TRADE

Turkey, US failed to notify UN Security Council of ISIS oil smuggling - Russian UN envoy Churkin.

Ankara and Washington contravened the UN resolution on financing terrorism by failing to inform the Security Council about Islamic State illegally trafficking stolen oil, Russia’s UN envoy has said.

“We’ve got serious complaints about the implementation of [UN] resolution (#2199, banning financing of the terrorist organization),” Vitaly Churkin told RIA Novosti news agency.

“Under Resolution 2199, adopted on our initiative in February, countries are obliged to provide information (about financing terrorists) to the Security Council - if they have such information. That means the Americans had to provide such information, and of course Turkey, which should have reported any illegal [oil] trade going on there. They didn't do it,” Churkin said.

EUROPEAN DREAM TURNS INTO DYSTOPIAN NIGHTMARE

As a Europhile British ex-pat who has spent most of his adult life living on “the continent,” as we Brits are fond of calling the non-British part of Europe, it might seem rather odd to be encouraging my fellow Brits to vote to leave the European Union. Not so long ago — perhaps a decade or so — I believed that the interests of Britain would be best served if the country was a full-fledged member not only of the EU but of the euro zone. I was wrong, but it was a different time and I was a different, more innocent me.

REVEALED: Marco Rubio's brother-in-law was the 'front man for an international drug-smuggling ring led by leopard-loving "cocaine cowboy" kingpin whose mansion was filled with big cats and a giraffe'

Marco Rubio's brother-in-law was the 'front man' for a multi-million dollar cocaine-smuggling ring headed by a drug kingpin who ran the operation from an exotic animal sanctuary, it has been revealed.

Orlando Cicilia was arrested for his part in the illicit operation in 1987 during Miami's narcotics heyday when Republican presidential hopeful Rubio was just 16.

Cicilia, 58, who is now working as a real estate agent, served just 12 years in prison despite being sentenced to 35 for his part in the scheme.

While he was behind bars, Rubio was launching his career in Florida.

A Public Challenge to Professor Noam Chomsky: Debating the September 11th Attack Evidence - on Kevin Barrett’s Truth Jihad Radio

Journalist-author Joe Giambrone joins us to discuss his challenge to Noam Chomsky, many of whose statements on 9/11 are bizarre and nonsensical. Along the way we discuss 9/11-anthrax, Mideast politics, and much more.

A Public Challenge to Professor Noam Chomsky:
Debating the September 11th Attack Evidence

Joe Giambrone

Opening Statement

Professor Noam Chomsky of MIT has made odd and frankly specious claims regarding skepticism of the government’s official story of the September 11th, 2001 attacks (http://youtu.be/3i9ra-i6Knc). His statements were misleading and have, in fact, misled many people who defer to him as an expert on these matters.

The One Reason Trump Is NOT Going Away Was Just Revealed On Fox News

Luntz appeared Thursday night on Fox News’ Hannity to discuss a recent focus group of 29 Trump supporters. His conclusion was that Trump’s supporters are extremely loyal no matter what anyone says, including Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Luntz is missing the real reason for Trump's popularity. Trump's occasional gaffes, coupled with the obvious media bias against him, signals that he really is a political outsider and that is what Americans want, for the existing (and even hereditary) establishment to be fired, and some new blood (new thinking) to be put into government. Americans are sick of business as usual, wars as usual, pandering to Wall Street as usual, unquestioning support for Israel as usual. Americans want a dramatic change to the nation. Trump is the only candidate promising that.

Two Million Syrian Christian Population Being Exterminated by ISIL

Since the terrorists have swept the secularists aside, Christian Syrians–long protected by Assad—are now being “disappeared” by the millions. By the millions! Of the 1.8 million Christians that lived peacefully under Assad before the Arab Spring, only 400,000 Christians still live in intact communities in Syria today. The rest are either dead or fled–we know not where.

City of Fort Worth Levies $3,000 Fine to Raw Milk Dairy, Located Outside of City Limits

More Criminal government!

Elmer DePaula, a health superintendent for the city claims that Rosey Ridge Farms was operating an illegal food establishment within the city limits. When in actuality, a food cooperative was purchasing the raw milk and transporting the product back to Fort Worth to distribute to it’s members.

Saving their sworn enemy: Heartstopping footage shows Israeli commandos rescuing wounded men from Syrian warzone - but WHY are they risking their lives for Islamic militants?

Under cover of darkness, an Israeli armoured car advances down the potholed road that leads to Syria. As it crests a small hill, the driver picks up the radio handset and tells his commanding officer that the border is in sight.

He kills the engine. Ten heavily-armed commandos jump out and take cover, watching for signs of ambush. Then five of them move up to the 12ft chainlink fence that marks the limit of Israeli-held territory.

On the other side, on the very edge of Syria, lies an unconscious man wrapped like a doll in a blood-drenched duvet. The commandos unlock the fence, open a section of it and drag him onto Israeli soil.

But this wounded man is not an Israeli soldier, or even an Israeli citizen. He is an Islamic militant. And his rescue forms part of an extraordinary humanitarian mission that is fraught with danger and has provoked deep controversy on all sides.

It’s Time to Stop “Supporting Our Troops”: Thirty Million People Killed by U.S. Since the End of World War II

As both a West Point graduate and critic of the American Empire, to me the “support our troops” sentiment has long outworn its propagandized welcome. US Empire has been using that contrite expression to brainwash Americans and justify its wars and violence for far too long. It sprang up during this last decade’s protracted war losses in Iraq and Afghanistan. Never was it ever heard during the Vietnam War when our combat veterans returned home feeling defeated and suffering from untreated PTSD symptoms, shunned by a nation that had bitterly turned against them and their war, particularly by their own peer group. Fast forward to four decades and three war defeats later, and our government is still sending Americans off to fight and die inAfghanistan (9800 currently) and Iraq (3500 with another 100 on the way), and now inSyria (50 just proposed with more on the way while war-hawk Bobbsy twins McCain and Graham are calling for 20,000 more troops in Syria).
