Company Introduces ‘Snowflake Test’ To Weed Out ‘Whiny, Entitled’ Millenial Candidates

A US company has introduced a “snowflake test” to weed out overly sensitive, liberal candidates who are too easily offended.

The test includes questions such as “What does America mean to you?” and “When was the last time you cried and why?”. Many questions are designed to assess a candidate’s stance on America, police, and guns.

In New York, major crime complaints fell when cops took a break from ‘proactive policing’

When New York police officers temporarily reduced their “proactive policing” efforts on low-level offenses, major-crime reports in the city actually fell, according to a study based on New York Police Department crime statistics. The researchers also noted that proactive policing is often used disproportionately in communities with high poverty rates and large numbers of people of color.

It’s time for Trump, GOP to lose the distractions and get busy on tax reform

A new poll out Tuesday shows that the Trump administration and the GOP-controlled Congress could win major confidence points with Americans on both sides of the political divide if Washington delivers on a reform package to simplify the tax code and provide cuts for the middle class. According to the polling data out from the American Action Network, 73 percent of Americans believe comprehensive tax reform legislation should be a major priority for Congress.

Trump's New UK Ambassador Wrongly Accuses Britain of Spending 'Minimum' on Its Military

Donald Trump’s new ambassador to Britain has incorrectly accused the Government of spending the “minimum” on defence.

Woody Johnson, a 70-year-old billionaire, suggested the UK’s funding was not enough to maintain its global standing.

“Whether you have the capability you need to be a powerful nation going forward, I think you are going to have to determine,” he told the Telegraph.

"We spend at least twice that much and we could still spend more. And we probably should spend more as well."

(*Sounds like he's on point with The Trump Agenda to me !)

The NFL: Big Business With Big Tax Breaks

If You Build It ...

Besides the tax exemption, the NFL can also get a break through big stadium deals. Take, for example, the Dallas Cowboys.

In the late 1990s, the Dallas Cowboys and the team's owner, Jerry Jones, began plans to expand their stadium or build a new one. Jones shopped in and around Dallas for years, asking for public assistance to fund the stadium.

He found an audience in Arlington, a city just outside of Dallas. The price tag for the public was $325 million. (Jones was responsible for the balance of the money for the $1.2 billion stadium. Dallas News says Jones' contribution "was paid with commercial loans, league funding and proceeds from a ticket and parking tax.")

Paid Patriotism: Six Ways The NFL Is Directly Connected To The Government

There's a reason why football is called America's pastime. Americans —if they watch the sport or not— are unconsciously paying for it. Controversy brought on by NFL star Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the National Anthem last season, and subsequently looking for employment this season, has put the organization founded in 1920 under a microscope.

Non-Profit Status.
Believe it or not, the NFL is non-profit. The IRS expanded Section 501(c)6 of the Internal Revenue Code, which "provides for the exemption of business leagues, chambers of commerce, real estate boards, boards of trade and professional football leagues, which are not organization." As noted by The Washington Post, this exception means the NFL’s headquarters in New York led by Goodell is spared tax payments that some estimate to be $10 million annually— because the teams and not the NFL make money.

Sep 26 12:35

How the NFL Fleeces Taxpayers

Taxpayers fund the stadiums, antitrust law doesn't apply to broadcast deals, the league enjoys nonprofit status, and Commissioner Roger Goodell makes $30 million a year. It's time to stop the public giveaways to America's richest sports league—and to the feudal lords who own its teams.
Last year was a busy one for public giveaways to the National Football League. In Virginia, Republican Governor Bob McDonnell, who styles himself as a budget-slashing conservative crusader, took $4 million from taxpayers’ pockets and handed the money to the Washington Redskins, for the team to upgrade a workout facility. Hoping to avoid scrutiny, McDonnell approved the gift while the state legislature was out of session. The Redskins’ owner, Dan Snyder, has a net worth estimated by Forbes at $1 billion. But even billionaires like to receive expensive gifts.
And on and on........

Violent crime rising throughout US, FBI says

So the FBI came out today with their 2016 crime report. The mainstream media, as usual, ignores the real story.

All you need to know is in table 21 of the FBI report. See for yourself:

NFL TEAMS STAYED IN LOCKER ROOMS FOR ANTHEM UNTIL 2009—THEN DOD BEGAN ‘PAYING FOR PATRIOTISM’

What many people are missing in this debate is the fact that prior to 2009, NFL teams did not generally stand for the anthem. While having the option to do so individually if they chose to, most of the time they stayed in the locker room during this pregame ritual.

“NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed this morning the practice began in 2009, adding, ‘As you know, the NFL has a long tradition of patriotism. Players are encouraged but not required to stand for the anthem.’”

Additionally, it has come to light that many of the “patriotic” pregame displays in the NFL are simply propaganda displays that were paid for by the U.S. Department of Defense and the National Guard – meaning that these displays were actually paid for by the American taxpayers.

THE CDC’S STRANGE CASE OF POUL THORSEN, MD, PHD, VACCINE DATA MANIPULATOR “EXTRAORDINAIRE”

A few months ago after reading the book Master Manipulator, I wrote an article about Poul Thorsen, MD, PhD, the Danish medical researcher who produced the ‘premiere safety study’ that vaccines do not cause Autism; however, the study was produced fraudulently, but the CDC still promotes it and has not retracted it from vaccinology research, as science protocol requires.

One of the questionable studies involved is “A population-based study of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and autism” co-authored by Poul Thorsen, See comment in PubMed Commons below N Engl J Med. 2002 Nov 7;347(19):1477-82. It’s the study CDC particularly likes to point to regarding vaccines and Autism, and is published online here. The research was about ethylmercury in Thimerosal attributing to and/or causing Autism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In an age where science can increasingly be "bought", to enhance a pharmaceutical company's bottom line, please be very careful when your prescribing physician suggests a brand new, just out of the box treatment or vaccine for whatever ails you.

Because I have personally been a victim of a pharmaceutical company's "buying" the allegiance of my former physician by paying them for "recommending" certain prescriptions for my joint pain (which never really worked as advertised), at 68, I have absolutely no difficulty in asking a prescribing physician if they are getting compensated, in any way, for prescribing a medication for me.

Trust should never be an absolute; trust has to be earned.

SPANISH SUPPRESSION OF CATALAN INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT CONTINUES TO ESCALATE

Disobedient Media previously reported on the suppression of the Catalan independence movement in Spain. Since our first coverage of the issue, repressive tactics in Spain have continued to escalate. Disobedient Media’s report on the issue was also disingenuously smeared by Spanish media outlet El País. The press outlet also heavily criticized Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for having expressed concern on the matter.

That El País would perceive an independent news source like Disobedient Media as damaging enough to warrant such a response illustrates the deep insecurity the Catalan independence movement has stirred in Spain. El Paísdevoted a large, inaccurate chart to our coverage of the events:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Disgusting on the part of the Spanish media and government, but thoroughly predictable.

And by the way, does the incumbent Spanish President, Mariano Rajoy, want his country to remain in the UN?!?

And I say this, because he, at the moment, is having a "SMD" moment, (selelctive memory disorder moment) because he needs, and right the heck now ,to remember, that as a signatory to the UN, and an alleged advocate of its charter, the concept of "peaceful self-determination" is a value which is thoroughly enshrined in that charter.

SPYING BICYCLES LET POLICE KNOW WHO AND WHERE YOU ARE

Can you recall when your parents bought your first bicycle? Can you recall how thrilled you were when you didn’t need training wheels?

Those were great memories right?

Now imagine a future, where parents are forced to buy a bicycle that uploads all your kids data to a NASA spy satellite that knows exactly where they are are at all times.

This can’t be real, I’m joking right?

Sadly, this is no joke.

Tomes Software, is working with the Ford motor company to develop a device that will alert vehicles that a cyclist is close to you and vice-versa. The company claims, their device will cut down on bicycle, vehicle collisions.

A recent article in the Detroit Free Press reveals, that Tomes Software is working with Ford, Trek and NASA to develop bicycles that collect and transmit all kinds of personal data. (Click here to learn more about NASA spy satellites.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question has to be asked; at what point will Americans be able to buy a bike or car, which doesn't spy on you?!?

In our case, Mike and I are going to buy a car from the 50s, and adopt a Cuban mechanic!! :-)

'ISRAELI FLAGS WON’T SAVE YOU': ERDOGAN THREATENS IRAQI KURDS WITH FAMINE OVER REFERENDUM

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned that Iraqi Kurds will “not be able to find food” if Ankara decides to halt the flow of trucks and oil into the region, adding that all military and economic sanctions are on the table.

“[They] will be left in the lurch when we start imposing our sanctions,” Erdogan said in a speech broadcast live on television on Tuesday, as quoted by Reuters.

“It will be over when we close the oil taps, all [their] revenues will vanish, and they will not be able to find food when our trucks stop going to northern Iraq.”

Erdogan also warned that “flying Israeli flags” would not save the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) from regional isolation.

“If the only support for the KRG’s referendum is given by Israel and if the [outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party] PKK starts celebrating [the results] even before the polls close then there can be neither innocence nor legitimacy,” Erdo?an said, as quoted by Hurriyet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the response to the referendum was positive (and we still don't know precisely how the vote went, because results have yet to be revealed) I am very concerned about massive further violence as a result in this part of Iraq.

The Kurds have been formidable US allies in terms of stomping on ISIS in Syria; but even if the US has stopped short of endorsing this referendum, where does this referendum put the US position vis a vis Turkey, Iraq, and a (soon) nearly created Kurdish state, rich with oil?!?

And don't the Kurdish people believe that such service to the US should have translated into their having their own country?!?

The US government has placed itself, Iraq, and Turkey, into a very sticky wicket, as our British cousins would say, by supporting the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Syria, but not supporting a potentially soon-coming independent Kurdistan, simultaneously potentially carving bits out of Iraq to create this new nation.

What were those in the bowels of the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America thinking?!?!? The bottom line is here, they just weren't.

Apparently, not being able to think a scenario through to its logical conclusiion, has to be a prerequisite for working for the Federal government these days.

Monsanto Caught Ghostwriting Stanford University Hoover Institution Fellow’s Published Work

Newly-released documents, dubbed the Monsanto Papers, give the public a behind the scenes look into how far Monsanto will go to control public perception, news media and scientific research into the key ingredient in its Roundup product, glyphosate.

The documents, which include internal emails and memos, reveals among other things, how Henry I. Miller, a Robert Wesson Fellow in Scientific Philosophy and Public Policy at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, allowed Monsanto to ghostwrite an editorial he published in Forbes.com and claimed as his own in 2015.

The 2015 editorial attacked the decision by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a branch of the World Health Organization, to classify glyphosate as a probable carcinogen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Monsanto, in the 21st century,has become the personification of utterly despicable corporate evil.

As a former Justice Department Antitrust Division prosecutor who was on the trial team that broke up AT&T during the Reagan administration for price fixing and market division, take it from me!

Labour faces new anti-Semitism row after speaker at conference fringe calls for freedom of speech to cover Holocaust denial

Labour faced a fresh anti-Semitism row last night after a speaker at a party conference fringe event called for free speech to extend to holocaust denial.

At the same meeting, activists cheered as a speaker called for Jewish and pro-Israel groups to be expelled from the party.

Israeli-American author Miko Peled told a conference fringe meeting Labour members should support the freedom to “discuss every issue, whether it’s the holocaust, yes or no, whether it’s Palestine liberation - the entire spectrum.

“There should be no limits on the discussion.”

Man Removes Nazi Swastika Tattoos After Unlikely Friendship

Colorado resident Michael Kent recently sat down at a tattoo parlor in Colorado Springs to have his swastikas covered up.
Kent, a former neo-Nazi, credits an African-American parole officer named Tiffany Whittier with helping him to see beyond skin color and changing his views about white supremacy.
“If it wasn’t for her I would have seeped back into it,” said Kent. “I look at her as family.”
Whittier, 45, even inspired Kent, 38, to take down the Nazi flags he had hanging in his living room and replace them with smiley faces.

Let’s stop playing the national anthem before sporting events

There’s an irony here, I know. What I’m wondering in this essay is whether hearing less of our national anthem will make us Americans more patriotic—in a way that improves the state of our union. There’s no question in my mind that most Americans respect the flag and the freedoms of our country when the anthem is played. But if we don’t play the anthem at movies, on television, on social media, in parks, on mass transit, before concerts, or before other public gatherings, what is so special about sporting events? Is it possible that sports leagues, run by billionaire owners, are draping themselves in patriotism that is unearned, perhaps unwarranted, for a mere game among highly paid adults? Perhaps they are even disguising the flaws of their game with giant flags, draped in violation of the US Code, while their players struggle with mental illness and brain damage?
Note: And just as important, how much money does it cost the taxpayers to have military jets do their flyover. Much.

Conservatives have a blind spot for the police for reasons that are mystifying. Conservatives, after all, are hugely distrustful of government authority. Someone from the IRS or the EPA bosses citizens around and deprives them of their property and conservatives freak out.

But call that agent of the government a cop, give him a gun, the authority to kill, and a public sector union devoted to ensuring he faces zero accountability? Suddenly only racial agitators and liberal namby-pambies question his actions.

Holocaust denier ordered to visit concentration camp

A court in Brussels has ordered a former Belgian lawmaker to visit five Nazi concentration camps and write about his experiences as punishment for publicly denying the Holocaust, a crime in Belgium. Laurent Louis, a far-right politician and self-proclaimed “anti-Zionist,” was convicted of Holocaust denial in 2015 after he wrote blog posts publicly doubting whether Jews were killed en masse in Nazi gas chambers during the Second World War. He received a roughly $20,000 fine and a six-month suspended prison sentence. But recently, the Brussels Court of Appeal put the prison sentence on hold and instead ordered him to take one trip per year for the next five years to Nazi death camps

UN envoy says Israel ignoring UN demand to halt settlements

Israel is not complying with a U.N. Security Council resolution demanding a halt to all settlement activity and instead is continuing to expand settlements, making a two-state solution "increasingly unattainable," the U.N. envoy for the Mideast said Monday. Nickolay Mladenov told the council that in the three months since June 20 Israel's settlement activity "continued at a high rate, a consistent pattern over the course of this year." He said activity was concentrated primarily in east Jerusalem where plans were advanced for over 2,300 housing units in July, "30 percent more than for the whole of 2016." Mladenov stressed that the United Nations considers settlement activities illegal under international ...

The attacks documented in the report include a March 20 airstrike that targeted a school housing displaced people in the suburban town of Mansourah, outside of Tabqa, as well as another strike that hit a packed marketplace in Tabqa City two days later. Investigators from Human Rights Watch visited the sites of both attacks this July and collected the names of at least 84 civilians who had died in the bombings, including 30 children. While witnesses who spoke to investigators acknowledged that ISIS members, along with their families, had been around the areas of the bombings, they also said many civilians were nearby who had no connection to the group.

Steelers' Alejandro Villanueva on standing for anthem: 'I made my teammates look bad'

It was a mistake he says. Looks like Villanueva just woosed out.

Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger and the only Pittsburgh Steeler seen standing during the national anthem on Sunday against the Chicago Bears, told reporters he “unintentionally” threw his teammates under the bus.

In a news conference on Monday, Villanueva said it was never part of the plan to be out on the field alone and that he accidentally ran too far, according to CBS Pittsburgh.
