Big Pharma’s Worst Nightmare, Survey Finds Most Medical Pot Users Quitting Prescription Drug Use

A new survey published this month in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs helps explain why Big Pharma is so afraid of cannabis. The pharmaceutical and alcohol industries, both powerful influences in Washington, have long lobbied against cannabis legalization in order to protect their profits.

However, the tide has turned as decriminalization of medical and recreational cannabis sweeps the nation and the continent. With legalization, more and more people are discovering how this plant can provide a safe alternative to the dangerous effects of prescription pills.

Why Israel’s Airstrikes in Syria Are a Sign of Weakness, Not Strength

I will proceed from what seems to be an established fact (SANA confirmed) that on the night of January 11th Israel hit one depot at Damascus international airport. I.e., material damage. 12 projectiles were fired in total. Syrian air defences worked, and by all accounts they were as effective as they were in the previous Israeli bombing run (80% accuracy approx.).

Even if Israel had hit two warehouses or a local farm in addition, then it changes absolutely nothing. What the Syrian Army lost can be replaced with little risk; Iran has seemingly supplied the Syrian Army very well and continues to do so at will.

$21 Trillion dollars is missing from the US government. That is $65,000 for every person in America. That is as much as our entire national debt!

What's going on? Where is the money? How could this happen? How much has really gone missing? What would happen if a corporation failed to pass an audit like this? Or a taxpayer?

This means the Fed and their member banks are transacting government money outside the law. So are the corporate contractors that run the payment systems. So are the Wall Street firms who are selling government securities without full disclosure. Would your banks continue to handle your bank account if you behaved like this? Would your investors continue to buy your securities if you behaved like this? Would your accountant be silent?

This is the reason that there is such a strong push to change or tear up the US Constitution. This is why members of the establishment say it is "old," "outdated!" This is why there is such a push for gun control. Don't buy it! We can use the Constitution to get our money and our government back. It is time to enforce the US Constitution.

Schumer to force vote on U.S. decision to lift sanctions on Russia firms

Anti-BDS Bill Defeated

Some may be happy to learn that the US Senate didn’t pass the ‘anti BDS bill’ on Tuesday. But a look at the vote reveals that America’s politicians are fully removed from the American ethos of freedom. Fifty six mostly Republican Senators, just 4 shy of the 60 needed to pass the bill, voted to enact a law contrary to the Constitutional right to Freedom of Speech as granted by the 1st amendment. The defeated bill included a provision to allow states and local governments to punish Americans who boycott Israel. This was an astonishing and nearly successful attempt to legislate crude government interference with freedom of speech in its most protected form: political speech. The fact that such a bill made it to the floor of the Senate confirms that the American political establishment is an occupied zone committed to silencing opposition to Israel and its lobby.

Placing the USA on a collapse continuum with Dmitry Orlov

Stage 1: Financial collapse. Faith in “business as usual” is lost.
Stage 2: Commercial collapse. Faith that “the market shall provide” is lost.
Stage 3: Political collapse. Faith that “the government will take care of you” is lost.
Stage 4: Social collapse. Faith that “your people will take care of you” is lost.
Stage 5: Cultural collapse. Faith in “the goodness of humanity” is lost.

GUARDIAN REPORTS MORE “GOOD NEWS”, KID ARE DYING IN VENEZUELA

The Guardian’s Tom Phillips’ article Venezuela Crisis Takes Deadly Toll on Buckling Health System (January 06, 2019) is more good news for US psychopaths, such as Trump, Bolton and Pompeo. Children are dying in Venezuela. Sanctions are working! Tom is becoming the Luke Harding of Venezuela. Luke…err, Tom blames all of Venezuela’s problems on president Nicolas Maduro.

Scott Adams: The Turley Hypothesis, CNN’s Border Story

Jonathan Turley, legal scholar, article ponders the question…
Are Russian Collusion and deep state, confirmation bias?
Does confirmation bias fit the facts?
3 Possibilities, which one is most likely?
1. Deep state attempted to set up a candidate/President
2. President Trump is actually a Putin puppet
3. Both sides “saw” crimes, but actually confirmation bias
Prediction:
No convictions or impeachments for Russian Collusion or deep state activity
Humans can only invent ourselves or a better version of ourselves
Facebook is our heart and family
Twitter is our brain
Geo-Engineering the earth and other planets
Is God both our future and our past?

Face of equality, or an encounter with bruising reality? Woman contestant brutally beaten by a male rival in shocking SAS: Who Dares Wins boxing match

Women do not belong in the military Period!

On a stage with his family, including his twin brother Rep.

Late last year, the U.S. government accidentally revealed that a sealed complaint had been filed against Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. Shortly before this was made public, the FBI reconfirmed its investigation of WikiLeaks was ongoing, and the Wall Street Journal reported that the Department of Justice was optimistic that it would be able to extradite Assange.

30 Democrats in Puerto Rico with 109 lobbyists for weekend despite shutdown

Some 30 Democratic lawmakers left the government shutdown behind Friday on a chartered flight to Puerto Rico for a winter retreat with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives during which they planned to see the hit Broadway show “Hamilton” and attend three parties including one with the show’s cast.

Those attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC winter retreat in San Juan planned to meet with key officials to discuss the cleanup after Hurricane Maria at a roundtable Saturday.

But the weekend is packed with free time for the members and their families on the trip.

“We are excited for you to join us for CHC BOLD PAC’s 2019 Winter Retreat in San Juan, Puerto Rico! Each year, this retreat serves as a way for our CHC BOLD PAC Members and friends in the D.C. community to come together to escape the cold and discuss our shared priorities for a stronger and more prosperous country,” said a memo on the trip.

Are Netanyahu’s Days as Israeli PM Numbered?

Damning evidence indicates he warrants indictment for bribery, breach of trust and fraud.

They’re civil crimes, minor ones compared to major wrongdoing he’s unaccountable for – namely, waging undeclared war on Palestinians throughout his tenure as prime minister, responsible for high crimes of war, against humanity, and slow-motion genocide.

Endless investigations into his wrongdoing showed he accepted about $1.1 million in illicit gifts from accused French fraudster Arnaud Mimran, Israeli billionaire Arnon Milchan and others.

He faces potential charges in so-called Cases 1,000, 2,000, and 4,000 – the first on suspicion of inappropriately or illegally receiving lavish gifts from wealthy supporters, amounting to possible bribery.

The Clintons' Ally? Wall Street Analyst on World Bank President's Rise and Fall

On 7 January, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim announced his intention to step down. Speaking to Sputnik, Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel commented on Kim's unexpected move, shedding light on the top banker's decade-long career and cooperation with the Clinton Foundation.

World Bank President Jim Yong Kim's decision to resign came out of the blue, as in early September 2018 he seemed willing to finish his second term which was due to expire in 2022, Wall Street and investigative journalist Charles Ortel told Sputnik.

"In early September 2018, Kim sat down for an extended interview with Carlyle Group founder David Rubinstein on Bloomberg TV", Ortel said. "In this interview, Kim seemed eager to serve out his second term, asserting the need to continue the progress he had seen with World Bank colleagues since 2012, when he began his first term as World Bank President".

America’s Youngest Black Legislator Caleb Hanna: Pro-Life, Pro-God, and Pro-Wall

Caleb Hanna was sworn into the West Virginia legislature last month, making the staunchly pro-life lawmaker America’s youngest black legislator.
“I’m proudly a Christian conservative and was raised on the belief that success is built with hard work, commitment and dedication – West Virginia values that continue to guide me today,” Caleb Hanna said last May during his campaign.

“I support the WV Pro-Life movement and have been endorsed in the Republican Primary by West Virginians for Life. I also fully support the 2nd Amendment and our right to bear arms,” the young lawmaker said. “I will be a passionate, effective, and conservative fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution.”

30 Democrats Party in Puerto Rico During Government Shutdown

Despite an ongoing government shutdown reaching unprecedented lengths, it appears that many Congressional Democrats haven’t let potential negotiations with the President get in the way of a celebrity-starred vacation to the tropical paradise of Puerto Rico.

At least 30 Democrats from the House and Senate are said to be kicking back on the island in a trip sponsored by lobbyists from companies like Facebook, Amazon, Comcast and Verizon. They’ll have a chance to view a showing of the hit musical Hamilton, and get acquainted with the show’s cast.

BOLD PAC, a political component of the ethnic-lobby House Hispanic Caucus, is said to have chartered a Boeing 737 to transport visitors to the Caribbean island, still said to be recovering from the effects of Hurricane Maria.

Whoopi Goldberg to Ocasio-Cortez: Learn Your Job Before You Start Criticizing Democrats

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of “The View,” told Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that she should learn the job of being a congresswoman before attacking establishment Democrats.

The longtime actress advised Ocasio-Cortez to “sit still” and “learn the job” first, before taking a shot at others.

Goldberg was responding to a “60 Minutes” interview in which the New York socialist vowed to continue supporting primary candidates in an attempt to unseat incumbent Democrats.

Narcissism: Why It's So Rampant in Politics

Consider that two of the things narcissists most desire are money (i.e., lots of money) and power (the more the better). And these two assets can be tightly interwoven. Consider also that many of the individuals entering the political arena have already made their fortune, or inherited it. So what typically drives them is a lust for power, prestige, status, and authority. These (let's call them) "objects of admiration" not only gratify their need for self-aggrandizement by feeding their oversized ego. They also provide them with compelling evidence to confirm their sense of superiority to others—probably their most coveted need of all.

Feinstein Ban on Semiautos Deliberately Undermines ‘Security of a Free State’

The mask if off for all but those who refuse to see. This is not about “common sense gun safety” or protecting children or anything other than evil creatures in positions of power doing the bidding of those who would see the people disarmed. This is about nullifying any chance of opposition to their agenda of complete domination and control. -- A more proper name reflecting on the sponsors of this proposed Intolerable Act would be “The We're Anti-American Traitors Act of 2019.”

ATF Bump Stock Rule Demonstrates the Dangers Inherent in Administrative Actions

If Trump and the DOJ-ATF are allowed to get away with this subterfuge, then it is but a small step from a total ban on “bump stocks” to a total ban on all semiautomatic firearms, since rate of fire—utilized as the salient and subjective basis for elimination of firearms in the hands of civilians—will now provide the “ammunition” antigun zealots can and will latch onto in their unyielding zeal to continue to weaken the Second Amendment. And it is Trump, now, not Schumer or Pelosi, who has given them a vehicle they can and will use to destroy at once the citizen’s best means of self-defense and destroy, as well, the one truly capable defense in the citizen’s possession, to prevent or at least deter the onset of tyranny.

Marco Rubio's Israel anti-boycott law is an attack on free speech

These are divisive times. But Americans should be able to agree on at least one issue: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) shouldn't be the arbiter of what political expression is or isn't allowed in America.

Rubio is leading the effort to pass the "Combating BDS Act," a law that would give the federal imprimatur to state and local governments that pass laws against giving government contracts to individuals and companies that boycott the State of Israel in opposition to its policies regarding the Palestinian territories.

That act — part of a larger package of measures regarding Middle East policy — suffered a setback this week, thanks to a Democratic filibuster. But Rubio and the anti-boycott movement aren't done.

'Serial predator': L.A. writer has been sounding alarm on Ed Buck for over a year

When authorities in Los Angeles found Timothy Dean dead in the apartment of Ed Buck, a Democratic activist and campaign donor, early Monday morning, Jasmyne Cannick was not surprised. Just six months ago, Cannick had posted a warning on Twitter that something like this might happen.

“If another young, Black gay man overdoses or worse dies at Democratic donor Ed Buck’s apartment it’s going to be the fault of the sheriff’s dept and L.A. District Atty for not stopping him when they had the opportunity to,” Cannick wrote on Twitter in late July.

The Outrageous Assault on the Knights of Columbus

Kamala Harris is set to announce her candidacy for president sometime around Martin Luther King Jr. Day. What sort of chief executive would she be? Well, here's your first clue: On December 5, Harris posed a series of written questions to Brian Buescher, President Trump's nominee for District Court in Nebraska. The third question reads as follows:

Since 1993, you have been a member of the Knights of Columbus, an all-male society comprised primarily of Catholic men. In 2016, Carl Anderson, leader of the Knights of Columbus, described abortion as ‘a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40 million deaths.' Mr. Anderson went on to say that ‘abortion is the killing of the innocent on a massive scale.' Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman's right to choose when you joined the organization?

TRUMP DRINKS AT THE WRONG BARR!

President Donald J. Trump, much to his credit, does not frequent bars, as he admittedly does not drink alcohol. But in listening again to bad advice from establishment Republicans by nominating former George H.W. Bush Attorney General (AG) William “Bill” Barr to replace the cowardly and now disgraced Jeff Sessions, he clearly has swallowed the proverbial Kool-Aid. And, with the forced impending resignation of Sessions’ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, just when it looked like the president was extricating himself from the swamp, he has fallen back into its dark and murky waters.

‘Israel has never been so divisive in modern political history’ — anti-BDS bill fails again in Senate

Israel has never been so openly politicized in the United States as it is right now. Yesterday afternoon Senate Democrats voted to block the progress of a bill that would punish those who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel. It was the second time in three days that the Democrats joined together on that procedural vote, saying that the shutdown should come first.

Democrats are expressing the fear that the party will split over Israel, just as Republicans want. The Senate leadership has indicated that it will push the bill again soon in an effort to show which party cares about Israel and which party is harboring “anti-semitic” and “racist” forces, in the words of Colorado Senator Cory Gardner.

The anti-boycott bill has gotten wide coverage, from Common Dreams to Vox, where Zack Beauchamp’s excellent explainer on the legislation concludes by citing the pro-Palestinian attitudes among young progressive Americans in polls.

To Israel ‘the mere existence’ of a Palestinian Muslim Congresswoman is a menace

One of the founding myths of Israel is the non-existence of the Palestinian people. Tragically this myth served the country to great effect especially in denying the return of refugees (750,000, half the population) to their country following their expulsion in 1948 and in continually hindering the Palestinian people’s progress into a sovereign, independent state. Nothing threatens this myth more than a Palestinian refugee reasserting their identity and offering themselves as a constant reminder of Israel’s past sins. Their mere existence is a menace.

Jake Tapper Turns Kamala Harris Into Stuttering Fool After Exposing Her Shady Past On Live TV (Video)

That old news will come out as soon as she announces, don’t worry, but it was another skeleton that Jake Tapper dragged out of her closet on live TV that is even more damaging to her future campaign and position as the leader of the #metoo movement.

Look, her closest aide was a scumbag to women and he got caught and while Kamala is trying to play dumb – there was a settlement of $400,000 paid out and as the head of the department, it begs belief that she didn’t know.

Enter Jake Tapper who actually did his job for a change and held her to account. Kamala tries to squirm and do the DC two-step but it is clear she is vulnerable on this issue and that no one believes her denials.

No, This Shutdown Does Not Look Like Liberty

By Jeffrey A. Tucker

Some people are suffering. Some people don’t care. But for the pundits following the government shutdown, it’s been an epic battle.

The partisans of the president are cheering while the cabal of cheerleaders for big government is saying the shutdown shows how much we need and should love the state as we know it.

They are both wrong...
