Seeking To Expand (Or find?) His Appeal, Rand Paul Meets With a 'Minority Owned Business' in the 'Inner City'

Rand Paul has actually admitted that he "meets with Israeli groups daily" in his office. He also consults with Henry Kissinger, the Zionist Organization of America, and takes his marching orders from AIPAC fundies. But this week Rand finally met some blacks! He announced it in his weekly e-mail newsletter wrap-up. Rand met with what he called a "minority owned business,"
"one of the top 100 inner-city businesses in the country," as Rand put it. He even included a photo. Last year rand told the blacks in Ferguson that they should wait to have kids, to avoid being stuck in poverty.

Democrats Depend on Affluent Voters? That’s Rich

“How Did the Democrats Become Favorites of the Rich?” asks a column by the New York Times‘ Thomas Byrne Edsall (10/7/15).

The short answer is—they didn’t.

There’s a key line at the beginning of Edsall’s column:

Trump's Success Exposes America's Winner-Loser Society

Everywhere you look - from political campaigns, both Democratic and Republican, that are focused on the haves and have-nots, to much of the Internet - people are upset. They are angry that they are being bullied by folks who have more power - and sometimes lots more money — than they have.

You feel a tension in America now between “us” and “them.” This is not about the usual suspects of polarization - conservatives and liberals. It is “us” and those myriad groups that the public feels have disempowered them. Because bullying isn’t just an issue for children any more. It is an issue - perhaps the issue - for everyone.

Andrew Sullivan: Hillary an ‘Unbelievably Useless, Terrible Candidate,’ ‘Talent-Free Hack’

Blogger Andrew Sullivan slammed Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a “talent-free hack,” and openly wondered if “she has any core beliefs” on Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time.”

Sullivan began by criticising “This unbelievably useless, terrible candidate of Hillary Clinton, who has shown no –.”

After host Bill Maher asked Sullivan to explain, he asked, “Have you ever — has she ever given a speech that you were inspired by? Does she have any good retail skills? Is she able to come across on TV?”

Sullivan added, “A large majority of the country don’t believe a word she’s saying, for good reason. This week, her cynicism reached like an almost perfect Clinton level.”

Clinton’s camp says she ‘could have a serious meltdown’

“Hillary’s been having screaming, child-like tantrums that have left staff members in tears and unable to work,” says a campaign aide. “She thought the nomination was hers for the asking, but her mounting problems have been getting to her and she’s become shrill and, at times, even violent.”

War Party’s New Line: Vladimir Putin Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

As the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact collapsed, the rationale for spending one of every four US government budget dollars on a military jobs program and corporate welfare for “defense” contractors evaporated. With peace breaking out, American politicians faced the daunting task of remaining relevant without an external boogeyman to scare the bejabbers out of us commoners.

Bush the Elder and Bill Clinton tried hard to keep the scare up with Iraq, but after Desert Storm nobody really bought Saddam Hussein as a major threat to world peace. It took 9/11 to really put the War Party back in charge. They took full advantage, joyfully dancing on 3,000 graves while they dragged the US into interminable and expensive fiascoes in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere, all the while grooming a reluctant China as the next monster under the foreign policy bed.

Obama’s Two-Timing Foreign Policy

The mystery of the Obama administration’s foreign policy has always been whether President Barack Obama has two separate strategies: one “above the table” waving his arms and talking tough like Official Washington’s arm-chair warriors do – and another “below the table” where he behaves as a pragmatic realist, playing footsy with foreign adversaries.

Blast Shakes Ankara Just in Time to Justify NATO Incursion into Syria

By Tony Cartalucci

A massive blast has killed at least 30 and injured over 100 more in NATO-member Turkey’s capital of Ankara. The blast appears to have targeted the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) who was holding a peace rally at the moment of the explosion...

Putin's Endgame in Syria

Somebody hit a Syrian powerplant in Aleppo with F-16'S. Looks like the Russians may have to repeat their warning.

Russia doesn’t want to fight a war with Turkey, so Russian generals devised a simple, but effective plan to discourage Turkey from taking any action that could lead to a clash between the two nations.

Last week, Russian warplanes intruded into Turkish airspace twice. Both incidents caused consternation in Ankara and send Turkish leaders into a furor.

NBC and Saturday Night Live Wants Constitution Gone and 2nd Amendment/Guns Rights Wiped Out. Implied Gun Owners 'Extremist'

I was completely outraged at what they said on Weekend Update. But before that, they had a segment about guns and it implied people were over the top and reckless regarding them. After weekend update they had yet another segment about guns that made those who stand by their rights as complete and total nuts, besides being extremist, using a 9 year old character played by Amy Schumer

Watch the weekend update at 32 seconds they begin their rant that we should not have gun rights and the constitution needs to go. I was literally shocked!

What they said and in Video:
“I know the forefathers said you have a right to own guns, but they also said you had a right to own people… the Constitution is a lot like our grandfather, he’s wise, we love him, and he means well, but he’s getting really, really old.

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."

Just 158 families have provided nearly half of the early money for efforts to capture the White House.

Across a sprawling country, they reside in an archipelago of wealth, exclusive neighborhoods dotting a handful of cities and towns. And in an economy that has minted billionaires in a dizzying array of industries, most made their fortunes in just two: finance and energy.

Now they are deploying their vast wealth in the political arena, providing almost half of all the seed money raised to support Democratic and Republican presidential candidates. Just 158 families, along with companies they own or control, contributed $176 million in the first phase of the campaign, a New York Times investigation found. Not since before Watergate have so few people and businesses provided so much early money in a campaign, most of it through channels legalized by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision five years ago.

Medical Care for Terrorists Will Get You Bombed by the US… Unless You’re Israel

by Dan Sanchez, October 10, 2015

For a long period, Israeli military medics took in numerous insurgents from Jabhat al-Nusra (the Syrian branch of Al Qaeda) wounded from fighting to overthrow the Syrian government, patched them up, and sent them back across the border to resume fighting. The mainstream media has studiously ignored this story, but it has been amply documented and confirmed .

Israel tried to justify this by characterizing it as a purely humanitarian policy, much akin to the Doctors Without Borders policy of treating everyone in need, no questions asked.

However, journalist Asa Winstanley has exposed this as pure propaganda:

U.S. gunship made five passes over Afghan hospital, despite 9-foot flags ID’ing it as a medical facility: MSF

KABUL — The U.S. military aircraft that attacked an Afghan hospital over the weekend made at least five passes over it dropping explosives, even though two flags draped across the roof of the building marked it as a medical facility, hospital officials said on Thursday.

In a news conference here in the Afghan capital, Doctors Without Borders officials reiterated that they think the hospital’s main building was “deliberately” targeted because it was the only structure hit during the bombardment. They denied that any Taliban fighters in the hospital were armed or using it as a base.

Special Report: Banishing Glyphosate

Underlying its success has been the repeated claim that the chemical is benign for human health, that its killing mechanism for plants works via an enzyme that does not exist in animals and is therefore safe for both human and animals. This claim goes counter to evidence that existed right from the start. Studies revealed both carcinogenicity and teratogenicity as far back as the 1980s, but were buried by industry with the support of regulatory bodies such as the US Environmental Protection Agency and the European Food Safety Authority (see Chapter 5 and [4] EU Regulators and Monsanto Exposed for Hiding Glyphosate Toxicity, SiS 51).

Meanwhile, overwhelming evidence of glyphosate toxicity across the globe has come to light. Everywhere, people are seeing steep rises in cancers, birth defects and other serious illnesses as glyphosate use increases. The World Health Organisation’s recent re-assessment of glyphosate as a ‘probable carcinogen’ vindicates the evidence witnessed by communities, researchers, doctors and campaigners for many years.

Putin’s “Endgame” in Syria

Putin doesn’t distinguish between the “moderate” terrorists and the “radical” terrorists, the good terrorists and the bad terrorists. It’s a joke. They’re all in the same pool and they’re all going to meet the same fate. They all have to be rooted out, apprehended or killed. End of story.

Incompetent or indifferent: Clinton burns CIA Libya contact

On March 18, 2011, Blumenthal wrote to Clinton about a conversation he had had with Tyler Drumheller, a former CIA official, who divulged the name of the contact. When the email was released to the Select Committee on Benghazi, the name was redacted.

"Tyler spoke to a colleague currently at CIA," Blumenthal wrote, "who told him the agency had been dependent for intelligence from [redacted due to sources and methods]."

It is bad enough that Drumheller, who had business interests in Libya along with Blumenthal, was able to learn so much from intelligence officers in the field. It is worse that he was so indiscreet as to tell Blumenthal, who had no business knowing and certainly no business sending email from his AOL account. But worst of all, this information reached Clinton in a way that left it open to anyone with the right computer skills.

Obama's War on Cancer Patients: Breast cancer patient arrested for protesting TPP 'death sentence' clause

A clause in Barack Obama's Trans-Pacific Partnership would establish an even bigger monopoly for the pharmaceutical industry. The deal allows Big Pharma to block cancer patients from being able to access affordable drugs. Part of the US proposal extends de facto monopolies on biological medicines by up to eight years.

One cancer patient named Zahara Heckscher was recently arrested at a Westin Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, for speaking about the issue while a Trans-Pacific Partnership meeting was taking place in the building. The meeting included policymakers from dozens of countries. Zahara was not welcome there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Matt Drudge is sounding the alarm that TPP will end the independent media. They may try, just as the USSR tried to silence the Samizdat and European clergy and royalty tried to limit Gutenberg's printing press, but in the long run, this will fail. So, we should not let this threat being wagged at us distract from the more dangerous parts of TPP/TTIP which put together create a nightmare for people. With the TPP/TTIP ban on GMO labeling, people will have no choice but to be exposed to Glyphosate pesticides, which cause cancer. TPP/TTIP prohibits reporting on corporate wrongdoing over computer systems, which means we are not going to be allowed to tell you about these problems! Finally, TPP/TTIP blocking access to generic and low cost alternative treatments means rich people with cancer will be made poor and poor people with cancer will die off, all for the greed of the corporations.

There and Back Again – Your Trip Through the American Empire

By Tony Cartalucci

The October 8, 2015 US Senate Committee on Armed Services hearing titled, “Russian Strategy and Military Operations,” gave viewers an instructive snapshot at the current state of America’s dwindling power.

The hearing is one of many interfaces between corporate-financier funded policy think tanks and the politicians who will ultimately rubber stamp their schemes and designs into law. It consists of a panel of bought-off, self-serving senators, listening to think-tank academics with no practical experience along with retired generals drawing paychecks by keeping big-defense, big-oil, big-ag, big-finance, and others well fed...

The Final Leaked TPP Text is All That We Feared

Today’s release by WikiLeaks of what is believed to be the current and essentially final version of the intellectual property (IP) chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) confirms our worst fears about the agreement, and dashes the few hopes that we held out that its most onerous provisions wouldn’t survive to the end of the negotiations...

A little puffery by Lyndon but a pretty good read!

The Obama freakout is continuing to spiral out of control; everything he does is blowing up. There is panic in the White House: expect self-inflicted wounds and punishments. Obama must be brought down! Shut down Wall Street and you bring down Obama at the same time.

On the whole, US leadership is disgusting. Compare it with the morality which has come forth in Germany in response to the refugee crisis. If it were not for Putin, we'd all be dead.

Ted Cruz: How U.S. must push back Putin in Syria

Enough already. We don't need a reset. We need a reality check.

Putin has been unmoved by the Obama administration's threats of isolation on the international stage, and economic sanctions have on their own been no deterrent to his opportunistic behavior. More of the same will not result in success.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, Ted, if you really feel that way; here's your rifle, and here's your parachute. Watch your head climbing into that transport plane and we will call Moscow and tell Putin you are on your way to kick his butt all by yourself. Meanwhile, I would like to remind you that Syria's government ASKED Russia to come in and help get rid of the terrorists. Syria's government did NOT ask the United States to come in and bomb the place to rubble. Lacking a United Nations mandate, any intervention into any country is a violation of international law and the United Nations charter. The United States is the aggressor, your empty bravado notwithstanding.

He also noted that the military operation in Syria was not noticeable in financial terms in comparison with the large-scale military drills that Russia has held recently.
