REVEALED: Facebook Exec Sheryl Sandberg’s Wacky 1991 Feminist Thesis

Sheryl Sandberg’s senior thesis, overseen by former Clinton staffer Larry Summers, might suggest why Facebook has developed a problem with conservatives. It provides a rare insight into the psychology and politics of a senior executive at one of the most powerful tech companies in the world.

In the thesis, Sandberg uses bizarre, discredited statistics and fashionable but shaky arguments about the “pervasive influence of the patriarchy” to explain domestic violence.

Barbara Boxer Meltdown Exposes Deep Divisions In Democratic Party

"Let's hear it for Hillary Clinton," exclaimed Sen. Barbara Boxer, losing her cool after Bernie Sanders' supporters "bullied" her at the Nevada Democratic convention on Saturday. As Biz Pac review reports, Boxer took the Las Vegas stage to raucous boos as her attempt to unify what is obviously as deeply divided a Democratic party as the mainstream would have everyone believe the Republican party is. "I'm for Hillary Clinton and she's for all of us,” she yelled. "Keep on booing and boo yourselves out of this election."

“I grew up in Brooklyn. I’m not afraid of bullies,” The California senator continued...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Senator "We have to pass Obamacare so that we know what is in it" is very much a part of the problem, and has become utterly and completely tone deaf to the problems her party has been complicit in creating over the years.

What happened at the Nevada convention may only be the tip of the iceberg, if Clinton is treated as "the anointed" and gets the nomination.

The California Voter Suppression Has Started – Mail In Ballots

My friend who is registered No preference in California got his official ballot in the mail. There was no choice to vote for Bernie Sanders on the ballot!

I called the SOS in Sac. County and was told you have to be registered with a party to vote. I told her this is incorrect and the SOS website says you can vote for any Demarcate or Republican registered as no preference.

She then changed her tone and said No party preference voters have to fill out a request for a crossover ballot given on the sample ballots that are mailed out.


Fill out crossover ballot request on back of sample ballot and mark Dem and mail it in.

Australia reaffirms hard-line immigration policy

Australia on Saturday defended its hardline immigration policy after two asylum-seeker deaths, weeks of protests and several medical evacuations from a camp in the tiny Pacific Island nation of Nauru.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said Australia's policy of refusing to accept asylum seekers who arrived by boat was necessary to deter people smugglers from organizing dangerous sea voyages.

"We do not theorize about border protection," he told reporters as he campaigned ahead of an election on July 2.

"We know what happens when those policies were abandoned: 1,200 people died at sea ... it was a catastrophe."

Asylum seekers intercepted attempting to reach Australia by boat are sent for processing to camps on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea or on the Pacific island state of Nauru. They are not eligible to be resettled in Australia.

Papua New Guinea has said it plans to close the Manus Island detention center after its Supreme Court ruled it unlawful.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I certainly wish that indefinite detention of illegal immigrants by the Australian government was far more humane, I must observe that Australia has not seen the rampant rise in the kinds of outrageous incidents we have seen from the flood of immigrants in Europe, or the rise of diseases we have seen in the US from illegal immigration.

The Fed Is Desperate To Keep Gold From Exploding Higher

By Dave Kranzler

The Federal Reserve’s “invisible hand” in the markets is no longer “invisible.” It’s become obvious to most market participants that the Fed is working hard to keep the stock market from collapsing and the price of gold below $1300. But why?

The price of gold moved up $15 overnight from the time the Asian markets opened until the Comex gold pit opened. Shortly after the Comex paper gold market trading was underway, an avalanche of paper contracts was dumped onto the Comex – both the electronic trading system and the floor. This is what it looked like...

It is without a doubt that we can see Obama's "liberation" of Libya was an absolute, unmitigated disaster; the next great US military misadventure in Libya will be yet another spectacular failure as well.

United States military spending continues to prove its staggering mismanagement as multi-billion dollar contracts are issued and high-tech products are finalized; while cost-overruns, program shutdowns, and outright tech failures continue to be documented.

The weapons acquisition process for our military in the US is corrupt beyond belief.

And when weapons, and the planes or ships carrying them, do not absolutely work as advertised, the first time they are deployed, heads of those companies making such equipment should be indicted, tried, and convicted to hard jail time.

"We're Going To Do It, F**k It" - Venezuela's Maduro Orders Military Exercises For Next Weekend

Over the past several days, things in Venezuela have not only taken a palpable turn for the worse, but now seem to be moving at an accelerating pace toward the inevitable endgame for the Maduro regime and whatever happens next.

As we reported on Friday night, following dramatic scenes of violence in the streets, things escalated when some 5,000 starving locals looted a supermarket looking for food, leaving countless injured. The result was an immediate, if long overdue acknowledgement by US officials that "a crisis is coming" who added that Maduro "was not likely to be able to complete his term, which is due to end after elections in late 2018" implying that a coup is likely imminent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US has been trying to impose puppet rule over Venezuela since Chavez was in power.

Bernie supporters then held a sit-in, but security and local police officers forced them out, saying “it is now in the hands of the attorneys.”

“If we do not leave, it becomes a big issue,” said one Sanders supporter. “I’m not leaving.”

In fact, the Michigan Department of Treasury analysis presented Friday shows that water rates in Flint, already among the highest in the nation, could double within five years unless changes are made to the crumbling water system.

In a case with major implications for free speech and due process, an appeal by Doreen Hendrickson, a mother jailed last year on “contempt of court” charges for refusing a federal court order to perjure herself, was officially denied.

If the ruling is allowed to stand, observers and legal experts warned of potentially devastating consequences to the rule of law, due process of law, judicial integrity, freedom of speech, and all of Americans’ constitutionally protected rights.

Basically, the government could force anyone to say anything, under oath, critics of the ruling observed.

Fourteen voluntary recalls have been announced related to a listeria outbreak that has caused eight cases of illness in three states.

Then, on May 2, it expanded that recall to include all frozen vegetable and fruit products that had been processed at its Pasco, Washington, facility since May 2014. This accounts for 358 products sold under 42 brands.

Federal Agents Exposed For Planting Surveillance Microphones In Public

It seems that every rock overturned reveals a new depth to government spying on its own citizens – in this case, literally.

Major cities have uncovered several secret operations in recent years that have sparked outrage. In 2013, Seattle police were forced to deactivate a hidden WiFi mesh network system that was funded by Homeland Security. This past month a Phoenix, Arizona resident documented a strange box that appeared on his utility pole; it was later claimed by the bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives, a branch of the U.S. Department of Justice – the ATF would neither confirm nor deny ongoing surveillance in the area.

Now the heavily populated Bay Area of San Francisco, home to nearly 1 million residents and countless millions more visitors, has been exposed to have been part of an ongoing operation to secretly record public conversations, perhaps dating from 2010.

No, the Joint Strike Fighter is actually three different plane designs sharing a basic cockpit, engine and software and a logistical network. The Air Force’s F-35A, the Marines’ F-35B and the Navy’s F-35C should, in all fairness, be the F-35, F-36 and F-37.

For half a century, Americans have been largely unable to visit Cuba and have had to rely on the US government and media for an understanding of the political, social and economic conditions there. What has been described as the “American Berlin Wall” has been successful in providing Americans with quite an inaccurate view.

Throughout this period, those Cubans who exited the island in 1959 (and their descendants) have maintained a propaganda programme that, rightly or wrongly, reflected their desire to return to Cuba and to once again rule it. Additionally, they’ve contributed regularly to both the primary US political parties in order to assure that the blockade would be maintained and that Americans would be kept out until such time as the island could be re-taken.

The Very Good Effect of More CO2

Ever since the late Margaret Mead organized a conference in 1975 to deliberately propagate an unscientific fear campaign, fraudulently claiming that manmade emissions of CO2 gases were endangering the global climate, the UN, countless NGOs and many governments have spent billions of dollars trying to find ways to reduce CO2 “man-made” emissions. In those days it was known as Global Warming until measured temperatures began falling, whereupon when the sponsors of the colossal scientific fraud changed the name to Climate Change. The campaign has largely failed, fortunately for the future of life on the planet.

The most “duh” approach to energy storage is very big batteries like the ones Elon Musk peddles, which are poised to become a lot cheaper in the next five years. Pumped hydroelectric facilities are another option. Or you can move compressed air around underground caves. But none of these options has emerged as the best way to fix the grid.

Then there’s rail energy storage, which is about to get its grand debut. In April, the Bureau of Land Management approved an ARES—that’s Advanced Rail Energy Storage—project, conceived by a Santa Barbara-based energy startup called, well, ARES. By 2019, ARES operations head Francesca Cava says, the facility will occupy 106 acres in the excellently-named town of Pahrump, Nevada. By running a train up and down a hill, ARES can help utilities add to and subtract from the grid as needed.

Russia will soon get nuclear trains that will look like ordinary cargo trains from outside

• Before each new "nuclear train" will be located at 6 wagons with launchers of intercontinental ballistic missile RS-24 "Jars". Wagons will look like ordinary wagons controlled, and the entire composition - as a regular duty

• One such composition to carry 24 nuclear warheads head. The old Soviet trains carried 30 warheads. The difference is not great, and even the accuracy of the new warheads considerably higher

• Nuclear trains for Russia guarantee that its backlash after an opponent - even if all its all submarines launchers and the shaft portion of terrestrial mobile carriers were destroyed - to be so powerful that his plan to deprive of sense

• The USSR had a railway combat missile systems "molodec" that existed and communicated throughout the country by 2003's. Constituted a serious effect because they wore 36 intercontinental missiles with 360 warheads

Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution forbids office holders from accepting anything of value from a foreign state, yet husband Bill Clinton collected $1 million from the Abu Dhabi government while Hillary was secretary of state.

Bill Clinton spoke at the Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI) on December 13, 2011 and received a speaking fee of $500,000. The AGEDI is a program funded by the Abu Dhabi government, so the source of the funds was the government itself. Although the fee was paid to Bill, Hillary equally benefited from the payment. In effect, she accepted money from a foreign state.

Defense Bill Coming This Week: A Boost for War and Tyranny

For many of us concerned with liberty, the letters "NDAA" have come to symbolize Washington's ongoing effort to undermine the US Constitution in the pursuit of constant war overseas. It was the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2012 that introduced into law the idea that American citizens could be indefinitely detained without warrant or charge if a government bureaucrat decides they had assisted al-Qaeda or "associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States." No charges, no trial, just disappeared Americans.

The National Defense Authorization bill should be a Congressional mechanism to bind the president to spend national defense money in the way Congress wishes. It is the nuts and bolts of the defense budget and as such is an important oversight tool preventing the imperial executive from treating the military as his own private army. Unfortunately that is no longer the case these days.

'No More Blue Eyes & Blonde Hair!' Islam Scholar Tells Germans 'Being German' Means 'Wearing a Hijab'

Lamya Kaddor, an Islam Researcher from Syria was loudly applauded after stating that the future German will no longer have blue eyes or light hair on German state TV. She predicts that soon every German will have a migration background and the "old German" is long deprecated and destined for extinction. She claims that Germany was always a country made up of immigrants and the notion that a people can claim "being German" for themselves is deeply racist and Islamophobic. She therefore joins chancellor Merkel in that opinion, who said there is "nothing but hate in the hearts of Germans who think they can claim 'being German' for themselves" during her New Year's speech which was available with Arabic subtitles.

Zionism’s Roots Help Us Interpret Israel Today

It was an assessment no one expected from the deputy head of the Israeli military. In his Holocaust Day speech last week, Yair Golan compared current trends in Israel with Germany in the early 1930s. In today’s Israel, he said, could be recognised “the revolting processes that occurred in Europe … There is nothing easier than hating the stranger, nothing easier than to stir fears and intimidate.”

The furore over Gen Golan’s remarks followed a similar outcry in Britain at statements by former London mayor Ken Livingstone. He observed that Hitler had been “supporting Zionism” in 1933 when the Nazis signed a transfer agreement, allowing some German Jews to emigrate to Palestine.

Barack Obama And A Quarter-Century Of US Wars

In a front-page article published on May 15, the New York Times calls attention to a significant milestone in the presidency of Barack Obama:

“He has now been at war longer than Mr. Bush, or any other American president.” Obama overtook his predecessor on May 6. But with eight months still to go in the White House, he is on target to set yet another record. The Times writes: “If the United States remains in combat in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria until the end of Mr. Obama’s term—a near-certainty given the president’s recent announcement that he will send 250 additional Special Operations forces to Syria—he will leave behind an improbable legacy as the only president in American history to serve two complete terms with the nation at war.”

Uncomfortable Truths About Banking and Money

Regarding the United States, the U.K., Europe, and Japan IT IS COMFORTING TO BELIEVE:

Debt has increased exponentially for decades, and in the case of the US, for over 100 years. It has worked so far, so we want to believe it will continue for the foreseeable future.

Our governments act as if they believe we can borrow ourselves out of debt, spend our way into prosperity, and pretend and extend indefinitely.

Every major country has a central bank, so it is comforting to believe they are needed.

It is comforting to believe that gold is unnecessary. As per Warren Buffett, we dig it from the ground, and then store it in a vault, where it sits.

These may be common and comfortable beliefs but they are all incorrect, and will be proven false in coming years.

Italy to DOUBLE the rate of child benefit to halt 'apocalyptic' fall in birth rate and encourage large families

The move comes after fewer babies were born in 2015 than in any year since the state was founded 154 years ago.

Italy's health minister Beatrice Lorenzin has called for lower income families to be given double the €80 (£60) currently handed out by the state, while also stating that higher payments should be given out for second and subsequent children.

Ms Lorenzin told La Repubblica newspaper: 'If we carry on as we are and fail to reverse the trend, there will be fewer than 350,000 births a year in 10 years' time, 40 per cent less than in 2010 - an apocalypse.

Trump warns he may not have 'a very good relationship' with Cameron, says 'ignorant' Sadiq Khan should take an IQ test and tells British voters: 'What do you need the EU for?'

The Republican presidential presumptive nominee turned on the Prime Minister and London's mayor after both criticised his proposal to ban all Muslims from the US.

Trump said the Mr Cameron's anger at his immigration policy was proof 'he's not willing to address the problem either'.

He also branded new London Mayor Sadiq Khan 'ignorant' for his criticism of the policy and said the Labour politician should take an IQ test.

He said: 'He doesn't know me, hasn't met me, doesn't know what I'm all about. I think they were very rude statements and, frankly, tell him I will remember those statements. They are very nasty statements.'

And he also weighed in to the EU referendum battle and said the UK should leave because: 'What do you need it for?'

'Betrayal': David Horowitz Slams Bill Kristol As 'Renegade Jew' For Undermining Donald Trump

Former Neocon David Horowitz slammed Neocon godfather Bill Kristol as a "renegade Jew" for "preparing a third party effort to block Trump's path to the White House."

"Their plan is to run a candidate who could win three states and enough votes in the electoral college to deny both parties the needed majority," Horowitz writes.

"This would throw the election into the House of Representatives, which would then elect a candidate the Kristol group found acceptable. The fact that this would nullify the largest vote ever registered for a Republican primary candidate, the fact that it would jeopardize the Republican majorities in both the House and Senate, and more than likely make Hillary Clinton president, apparently doesn’t faze Kristol and company at all. This is to give elitism a bad name."
