In shift, Jeb Bush turns to brother George W. for 2016 help

Jeb Bush has played down his famous family roots in his pursuit of the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, but with his campaign in trouble, he turned on Monday to brother George W. Bush for a political morale boost.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Somehow, I don't think that is going to work as well as Jeb thinks! :)

Netanyahu: I don't want a binational state, but we need to control all of the territory for the foreseeable future

This guy is completely 110% nutzs!You forgot the last part. Die by the sword not live forever by the sword!
The Israelis are killing each other and their political leadership has lost it!
The zios are killing Israel one Palestinian at a time!

Netanyahu then turned to opposition MKs and said: "You think there is a magic wand here, but I disagree. I'm asked if we will forever live by the sword — yes."

US ALLY SAUDI ARABIA BOMBS ANOTHER "DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS" HOSPITAL

Whenever you’re running an air campaign there’s always the possibility of collateral damage. In simpler terms, we you’re dropping bombs on populated areas, you’re invariably going to kill some non-combatants. Now ideally, you want to keep the number of dead civilians to a minimum, which is why The Intercept’s recent investigative report on America’s drone program was so disturbing - it turns out 90% of people killed aren’t the intended target.

DON'T THINK THE STATUS QUO WILL SAVE YOU

Here's a chart that shows how the Status Quo "fixes" every problem: it transfers more debt and more losses to the taxpayers. Many hold a touchingly naive faith that the Status Quo will save them even as the current system unravels. Why is this faith naive? Let's start with this key question: does the Status Quo strike you as being even remotely competent?

UN Paris Climate Hypocrisy: Limos and Learjets

Time to get out your AGW hypocrisy meters. AGW, of course, stands for anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming. And the hypocrisy meters are about to ring off the charts, as the AGW alarmists descend in droves on Paris for COP 21 (21st Conference Of Parties), the United Nations’ much-ballyhooed climate summit, set to take place November 30-December 11.

It happens every time: the millionaires, billionaires, and “public servants” — Prince Charles, Al Gore, Ted Turner, Richard Branson, Hollywood celebs, presidents, prime ministers, etc. — swoosh into the confab in their tax-payer provided jets, or their own private Learjets and Gulfstreams, to preach to the rest of us on why we must reduce our “carbon footprints” and submit to a UN-mandated “carbon budget.”

Sesame Street rolls out autistic muppet to 'normalize' vaccine injured children... follows Elmo push for mass vaccinations

In yet another sickening example of the absolute mental derangement of modern society, Sesame Street has rolled out its first autistic muppet named "Julia," says the Sesame Street website

The rollout of autistic Julia is Sesame Street's attempt to "normalize" vaccine injuries and depict those victimized by vaccines as happy, "amazing" children rather than admitting the truth that vaccines cause autism in some children and we should therefore make vaccines safer and less frequent to save those children from a lifetime of neurological damage.

Budget deal outlines reached as John Boehner looks to ‘clean the barn’ ahead of retirement

The White House and congressional negotiators reached the outlines of a deal Monday to suspend the debt limit and add more discretionary spending to this year’s budget, as all sides look to clear the decks ahead of House Speaker John A. Boehner’s retirement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, so they are not raising the debt limit. They are simply going to ignore it. And your great great great great great great great great great grandchildren will be slaves to that debt!

Is Tony Blair a Liar, or Is He Actually Stupid?

On Sunday October 25th, CNN headlined “Tony Blair says he’s sorry for Iraq War ‘mistakes,’ but not for ousting Saddam” and reported:

“I can say that I apologize for the fact that the intelligence we received was wrong because, even though he had used chemical weapons extensively against his own people, against others, the program in the form that we thought it was did not exist in the way that we thought,” Blair said in an exclusive interview on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS that airs Sunday.

Outlawing Israel boycott in Europe revealed as key AIPAC goal

In June, President Barack Obama signed a demand by the Israel lobby for how the TTIP negotiations should be conducted into US law. Because of clauses inserted into the “fast-track” legislation, the US team in the TTIP talks has been instructed that one of its main objectives is to protect Israel’s interests.

World Health Organisation, meat & cancer

Researchers then look at the data to try to see patterns. No pattern = no journal article, so look hard! They may observe a pattern between people who consume processed meat and people who go on to develop bowel cancer. This is then reported in a journal article and it is all such articles that have been reviewed by the World Health Organisation.

The first point to make, therefore, is that all of this is based on notoriously unreliable dietary questionnaires. Many ask what you ate yesterday or over the past 7 days. Here’s the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer questionnaire, one of the best possible questionnaires, as it asks for food intake over the past year. How accurate do you think yours would be?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At best this is very sloppy science. At worst this is another political agenda wrapped in a white lab coat.

Cameron breaks clean politics pledge with honor for Israel lobbyist

Before he became the UK’s prime minister, David Cameron vowed to “come clean about who is buying power and influence” in Westminster.

Cameron broke that promise when he recently appointed Stuart Polak, a veteran lobbyist for Israel and the arms industry, to the House of Lords.

For the past quarter century, Polak has been a director with Conservative Friends of Israel, a pressure group inside the current ruling party. He has combined that post with running a consultancy firm that puts corporations in touch with lawmakers.

Rules applying to the House of Lords stipulate that its members will “declare all relevant interests in order to make clear what are the interests that might reasonably be thought to influence their parliamentary actions.” The rules add that “information should not be withheld from the public unless there are clear and lawful reasons for doing so.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, but the rules don't apply to Israel! Everyone knows that!!!! :)

Russia to exhume father of last Tsar to solve century-old Bolshevik murder of Romanovs

Russia is planning to exhume the remains of Tsar Alexander III, the father of the last Russian emperor Nicholas II in an attempt to prove the remains of Nicholas II's last two children belong to the slain Tsar’s family.

It was requested by Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Forensic experts told Russian media the process is likely to start in the second half of November 2015. However, opening the vault of the Russian Tsar who died back in 1894 may be quite complicated.

EXCLUSIVE: Records show Ben Carson became Republican less than one year ago

Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump has received a lot of scrutiny for donating to Democratic politicians in the past. But Republican primary voters may be curious to know why one of his chief rivals, Dr. Ben Carson, officially joined the Republican Party less than one year ago. Carson filed this “record update/change” on that date to change his party affiliation to “Republican Party of Florida” — less than six months before declaring his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president...So does it matter that a leading contender for the Republican nomination for president officially became a Republican only a short time ago? "Six months prior to Dr. Carson’s announcement, his platform was void of top Republican primary issues including life, the second amendment, and God. It did, however, include sustainable development, social justice, and a 25% tax on all sporting events,” Pierson says, referring to the Independence Party of Florida.

'We are deeply disturbed': 343 British academics vow to boycott Israeli universities

Over 300 scholars from UK institutions have signed a letter vowing to boycott Israeli universities, citing Tel Aviv's “illegal occupation” of Palestinian land and “human rights violations.” The move has drawn criticism from Jewish organizations and diplomats.

The letter, signed by 343 academics, appeared as a full-page ad in Tuesday's Guardian newspaper.

“As scholars associated with British universities, we are deeply disturbed by Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian land, the intolerable human rights violations that it inflicts on all sections of the Palestinian people, and its apparent determination to resist any feasible settlement," it reads.

Ben Carson's Closest Confidant, Business Partner, & 'Brother-Like' Adviser is Armstrong Williams, Rabid Zionist & Disgraced Paid Propagandist for Bush Administration

Armstrong Williams, the black man posing as a 'conservative commentator,' is notorious for being exposed as a phony who took money from the Bush Administration to push the globalist 'No Child Left Behind,' garbage. Williams is presidential hopeful Ben Carson's 'right hand man'- and much more than that. The two are intimately close, Williams has a room in Carson's home, their families vacation together, Armstrong employs Ben Carson's sons, and is Carson's financial adviser and 'business partner.' The rabidly anti-Palestinian Williams recently accompanied Ben Carson to Israel. Despite pretending to be conservative while shilling for 'No child left behind,' Armstrong also admittedly used his blackness and 'minority status,' as opposed to his merit, to convince the FCC to let him buy up more TV stations. This is admitted in official FCC filings and papers. Armstrong recently tweeted "Here we go again.

Daddy Saves Campaign As Jeb Throws Tantrum: “I’ve Got Cooler Things to Do… Elect Trump If You Want”

After angrily watching Jeb take jabs from Trump, the elder Bush is calling his vast network of donors and political operatives to save the failed campaign.

A clearly Bitter Jeb! gave this statement during a recent temper tantrum:

If this election is about how we’re going to fight to get nothing done, then I don’t want anything — I don’t want any part of it. I don’t want to be elected president to sit around and see gridlock just become so dominant that people literally are in decline in their lives. That is not my motivation. I’ve got a lot of really cool things I could do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and feeling compelled to demonize them. That is a joke. Elect Trump if you want that.

Is that all it takes to squash dynasty in America? Good riddance.

A Harry Potter fan has called out JK Rowling in the best way possible

A music teacher from Dunfermline has crafted a Facebook post to one of her favourite authors, JK Rowling, calling her out over her support of the Guardian's "Culture for Coexistence" letter.

Seeing the news on her Facebook of Rowling's support, 25-year-old Mia was shocked and upset, and posted her reaction on social media.

The open letter was written in the hope of JK Rowling spotting it and responding to her long-term fan.

"I wanted to speak to her, because she had spoken to me and given me so much support over the years through her books that I needed to hear that she was still the same person who argued for freedom and peace in her novels," said Mia.

The letter so far has had over 3,000 shares, it can be read in full below.

Who Is Writing Business Legislation In America? Answer: ALEC

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) – is generally the backdrop to most corporations and their legislation. Not that all corporations are inherently evil (they aren’t); there are still those we are rightfully wary of, and particularly those who have a history with ALEC. What is ALEC exactly, you ask? ALEC is in lay terms, an organization dedicated to capitalism and deregulation. Their free-market agenda is supposedly non-profitable, but when you scratch beneath the surface, their close relationship with congress and new legislations are difficult to misinterpret

Donald Trump Says the U.S. Should Have Stolen Iraqis’ Oil After Destroying their Country

On Sunday the 25th of October, Republican U.S. Presidential aspirant Donald Trump was interviewed on CNN’s “State of the Union” show, and was asked about Iraq. He said, “I told you very early on, if we’re going to leave, take the oil.” He then repeated this theme again, in this CNN interview: “And I said, take the oil when we leave. But we shouldn’t have really left.” So: he thinks that the U.S. occupation of Iraq should have continued on, and should be continuing, and that the U.S. should have “taken” Iraq’s oil.

‘Untouchables': Obama Cronies “Protected Wall Street’s Most Criminal From Prosecution”

It is utterly clear that Obama’s Justice Department went out of their way to avoid prosecuting Wall Street executives whose criminal misbehavior was behind the worst of the collapse.

The DOJ's excuse for failing to prosecute Wall Street executives - that it was "too hard to obtain convictions" – has always defied common sense.

Attorney General Eric Holder was nominally in charge of the Justice Department’s investigations – and it is well worth pointing out that he spent the entirety of his time after being Clinton’s Deputy Attorney General, at Covington & Burling, a legal firm that specializes in representing top Wall Street institutions.

Insurance premium increase of 85 percent a stunner

The owners of the Sockshop & Shoe Co. face a stunning 85 percent increase in the cost of their group health insurance plan for their employees.

“When you’re doubling the cost, it’s threatening,” said Eric Gil, co-owner with his wife Ellen of the longtime downtown business.

Ellen, with 2016 quotes from the insurance agent in hand, said, “One choice is the nuclear option — don’t offer insurance.”

This is not what they expected from the Affordable Care Act. They thought rates could go up 10 to 12 percent, hoping as more people got health coverage, costs would come down, but that’s not happening.

Tony Blair’s Lame “Apology”: Blames ‘Bad Intel’ for 2003 Iraq Invasion

In an interview with CNN this weekend, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair apologized (kind of/sort of/not really) for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

“I apologize for the fact that the intelligence we received was wrong,” Blair said, somehow with a straight face.

“…The program in the form that we thought it was did not exist in the way that we thought, so I can apologize for that…”

“I can also apologize, by the way, for some of the mistakes in planning and certainly our mistake in our understanding of what would happen once you remove the regime… But I find it hard to apologize for removing Saddam.”

He went on to admit that there are “elements of truth” to the statement that the rise of ISIS can be directly attributed to the invasion of Iraq.

Most-read’ article at Washington Post calls Israel ‘savage, unrepairable society’

The leftwing movement of criticism of Israel is getting more and more mainstream by the second. Everyone is walking the path; they’re just getting there a little later. The Washington Post, a hotbed of neoconservative ideas for the last 15 years, has another article harshly critical of Israel today, written by an Israeli. And guess what: that article along with yesterday’s article by the two prestige Jewish academics calling for boycott of Israel are the two “most-read” articles on the Post list this morning!

9 Ways Hillary Clinton Could Still Lose The Nomination

This week, Hillary Clinton sat through the most recent round of activity from the House Select Committee On #Benghazi, and after watching her persevere in the face of -- well... whatever that was? -- we wouldn’t be at all surprised if a desperate Martin O’Malley demanded equal time in front of Trey Gowdy’s Rowdies for the sake of his own poll numbers.

Still, it’s funny: The post-debate narrative devolved into a civil war about whether Clinton had won. Now, after her all-day ordeal, you see a lot of presumptive coronations floating in the social media transom. It’s just October, everyone. Winning the nomination is still a challenge. And there are still ways Clinton could lose this thing. Though maybe not many? On this week’s First To Last, we are acknowledging, and ranking, the pitfalls that remain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are two things made painfully evident in Clinton's testimony last week; she lied to the American people about the actual cause of the incident at Benghazi, and broke the law.

Is THIS the moral calibre we want in the next President?!?

Haven't we had enough of this behaviour from the last, and current Presidents, who seem to have believed that lying to the American people and breaking the law is perfectly acceptable for an American President to do?!?

Are we not, please Lord, ready for a President who believes in speaking the truth to the people they lead, and NOT breaking the law?!?

One would hope so.

Some people can really only take so much of the political process before they give up on the system entirely.This is especially true in modern times, where every candidate is pro-war and pro-establishment. Obama was the last hope for many people who thought a politician could change things, but when Obama brought more of the same, some people became awake to the reality that politicians are usually con artists and that the entire political system is a scam.

FEC Filings: Jeb Bush Finance Director May Have Made $1.3 Million Off Of Campaign

A senior finance staffer for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s campaign, who also runs a firm that has received payments from the pro-Bush Super PAC Right to Rise USA, may have been paid more than a million dollars so far in 2015, either directly or through companies she owns or has an ownership interest in, off of Jeb’s effort to become the third member of the Bush family elected president of the United States.

$579,000 of those payments were made by the Bush campaign, and $760,000 were made by the Right to Rise USA SuperPAC, for a total in excess of $1.3 million.
