Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord

On Wednesday night, former House Speaker John Boehner bluntly called GOP candidate Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh.”

When asked for his opinion about the Texas senator, Boehner said, “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

It turns out that the Satanic Temple agrees with Boehner’s sentiments — but they said there’s no way Cruz is the living incarnate of Satan.

Police: Man in 'panda' outfit had fake bomb, wanted something aired on TV

A man walked into a television station in Baltimore dressed in an outfit described as a "panda onesie" claiming to have an explosive strapped to his chest, a Baltimore police spokesperson said.

Once the man was in custody, police were able to determine that the device was actually a set of candy bars wrapped in aluminum foil and wired together. The device also had a small motherboard that is similar to something one would see in a fire extinguisher, police said.

According to the spokesperson, the man entered WBFF, also known as Fox 45, around 1:30 p.m. with what he claimed was an explosive device and barricaded himself inside the station. He also had what police believe is a flash drive that contained a file that he wanted on television.

Sheriffs Call for Defying Unconstitutional Gun Control: Feds “The Greatest Threat We Face”

The cavalry is coming... constitutional sheriffs against gun control: “the army to set our nation free.”

[A] group called the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association is intent ... dozens of sheriffs signed a declaration that they would not tolerate any federal agent who attempted to register firearms, arrest someone or seize property in their counties without their consent.

Founder Richard Mack has described the federals as “the greatest threat we face today,” and his association as “the army to set our nation free.”

"Find a true constitutional sheriff who’ll tell the federal government, ‘You’re not going to abuse citizens anymore'..."

Gov’t Study Finds the More Time Young Adults Spend on Facebook and Twitter, the More Depressed They’ll Get

U.S. Catholic Bishops Join Mormons, Salvation Army, Others In USSC Amicus Brief Supporting Equal Religious Rights

An obscure but very interesting case involving the resurfacing of a Lutheran school playground is headed for the U.S. Supreme Court. A court in Missouri has ruled that the state can exclude a Lutheran school from its scrap tire program, which uses recycled rubber to resurface asphalt playgrounds. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, who jointly filed a 40-page amicus brief along with Protestant groups in support of the Lutheran school, issued a press release noting, "The case involves a Free Exercise Clause challenge to a decision by the State of Missouri denying a grant for playground resurfacing to an otherwise eligible religious school solely because of its religious affiliation." The amicus brief is actually quite interesting reading, chock-full of long-established legal precedents and case law regarding benefits given to religious organizations by the state.

Ted Cruz introduces Fiorina as his running mate, which is ridiculous on its face, because Cruz was mathematically eliminated from the race Tuesday night by the Trump ass-whooping. Cruz's delusions and mental health notwithstanding, Carly walks on stage, speaks for a minute and then randomly starts singing a lullaby to Cruz's daughters, who are apparently in the audience somewhere.

Stockman: Anything Trumps Hillary

It’s all over except the shouting. That is, the primary election season effectively ended last night and now the actual shouting match between Hillary and The Donald begins.

This will surely be the most entertaining election in US history, and probably the most pointless, too. After all, Hillary wants to use government to make Government Great Again. And Trump promises to use government to make America Great Again.

But government doesn’t make anything great, including itself. It is a necessary evil that always and everywhere is driven toward self-aggrandizement and mission creep by the politicians and special interest lobbies which control its operations.

US senator meets Syria's Assad, urges support for Damascus

A US state senator has held a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus, calling for more support for the Syrian government.

Speaking to reporters in the Syrian capital on Thursday, Dick Black, part-time state senator of Virginia, said it would be "beneficial" for Washington to speak directly to President Assad.

The remarks by Black, an outspoken Republican, contradict those made by US officials who claim that the Syrian president has lost legitimacy.

During his meeting with President Assad, the US senator emphasized that what is happening in Syria is far from disinformation practiced by some parties at the US administration.

SNOWDEN - Official Trailer

Academy Award®-winning director Oliver Stone, who brought Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Wall Street and JFK to the big screen, tackles the most important and fascinating true story of the 21st century. Snowden, the politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world.

He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others. No matter which you believe, the epic story of why he did it, who he left behind, and how he pulled it off makes for one of the most compelling films of the year.

(Note: Hmmmm . . . I wonder what won't be shown i.e. the direct NSA pipeline to Israel, maybe?)

‘Hitler was a Zionist’ claim gets Ken Livingstone suspended from Labour

"Let's remember, when Hitler won his election in 1932 his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel,” Livingstone told BBC Radio London earlier on Thursday. "He was supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews."

He later attempted to clarify his comments to the BBC and maintained that Naz Shah was not anti-Semitic: "I've heard a lot of people being critical of Israel, but if I was to denounce the South African government, you wouldn't say I was racist - and one of my worries is this confusion with anti-Semitism and criticising the Israeli government policy undermines the importance of tackling real anti-Semitism."

Trump Foreign Policy Speech Signals Death of Neocons and Peace With Russia

Donald Trump's major foreign policy speech delivered today in Washington, DC signaled the death of the Neocon stranglehold on America and the rise of peace with our greatest ally, Russia.

While bloodthirsty Neocons and internationalists like George Soros view Putin and the people of Russia as their greatest enemy, Trump sees them as a friend.

"We desire to live peacefully and in friendship with Russia and China," Trump said.

"We have serious differences with these two nations, and must regard them with open eyes. But we are not bound to be adversaries. We should seek common ground based on shared interests. Russia, for instance, has also seen the horror of Islamic terrorism."

Former US house speaker Dennis Hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison on Wednesday by a federal judge who called him a “serial child molester” after emotional testimony from a man who said Hastert abused him when he was 17.

Academic Freedom and Free Speech: Prof. James Tracy (says Sandy Hook was a hoax) Files Civil Rights Suit against Florida Atlantic University

AU school officials first threatened Tracy with disciplinary action after a defamatory local and national media attack concerning Tracy’s online postings in early 2013. However, the University’s administration withdrew its initial threats following intervention by Tracy’s union representatives at UFF and FEA.

In late 2015, Professor Tracy was again threatened with disciplinary action for requesting clarification on and questioning changes made to the University’s vague and confusing “Conflict of Interest/Outside Activities” policy. Instead of coming to his aid, Tracy’s faculty union representatives, including representatives and officials from UFF and FEA, conspired with and aided the University in terminating Tracy’s tenured employment—denying him meaningful representation and defense against the University’s threatened discipline.

Despite repeated assurances made by Tracy’s union representatives that a response and grievance would be filed for Tracy in a timely manner, as required by the University’s collective bargaining agreement, Tracy’s representatives failed to ever file a response or grievance, resulting in Professor Tracy’s automatic termination on January 6, 2016.

Miko Peled: Sanders ‘put everything on the line’ for Palestine because BDS movement has changed US conversation

Miko Peled has a new edition of the book The General’s Son out from Just World Books. Peled was interviewed by Michael Smith for the radio show Law & Disorder that is airing this week, and offered many insights about the shifting discourse.

The conversation about Israel inside the U.S. changed dramatically over the last five years due largely to the work of the BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) and the Palestinian solidarity movement, Peled said. And it has alarmed the Israeli public.

In Israel they suddenly discovered that this is happening in the United States…. So over the last couple of months [the press has reported on] this new antisemitic monster that is out there to devour Jews, which is called the BDS. And the BDS includes all aspects of the solidarity movement.

People too afraid to search privacy-sensitive topics after Snowden revelations – Oxford study

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden's revelations on government mass surveillance have apparently scared a significant number of people away from searching for terrorism-related information on Wikipedia, as a new study shows readers are afraid of being investigated.

The conclusions come as the online encyclopedia giant showed a 30-percent drop in searches on terrorism-related topics – the most direct evidence yet of something called the "chilling effect," described by University of Oxford and Toronto’s Jonathon Penney as the measure of the negative impact on legal conduct that arises out of the leaks by the former NSA contractor who exposed the PRISM program.

That’s the main point of manipulating markets. Creating the appearance of health is exactly the point.

Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
So-called “money” that is actually debt that creates accelerating and unpayable total debt.
Destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution, and in Orwellian inversion of limited government.
“Covering the crimes” with lies by corporate media.

This Day In History, April 26, 1954: Polio Vaccine Trials Begin on Schoolchildren In Virginia

The History channel reports that schoolchildren in Virginia became "medical pioneers," (more like guinea pigs). Ironically this day was also the date in 1607 when English colonists made landfall at Cape Henry, Virginia. This is a good opportunity to listen to this interview with medical Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, who thoroughly explains the REAL history of the polio vaccine and why you should say NO to vaccines.

Federal Judge Upholds North Carolina Voter Rules

A federal judge on Monday upheld sweeping Republican-backed changes to election rules, including a voter identification provision, that civil rights groups say unfairly targeted African-Americans and other minorities. The ruling could have serious political repercussions in a state that is closely contested in presidential elections.

The opinion, by Judge Thomas D. Schroeder of Federal District Court in Winston-Salem, upheld the repeal of a provision that allowed people to register and vote on the same day. It also upheld a seven-day reduction in the early-voting period; the end of preregistration, which allowed some people to sign up before their 18th birthdays; and the repeal of a provision that allowed for the counting of ballots cast outside voters’ home precinct.

It also left intact North Carolina’s voter identification requirement, which legislators softened last year to permit residents to cast ballots, even if they lack the required documentation, if they submit affidavits.

Security Stops Middle Schoolers from Singing the National Anthem at 9/11 Memorial

This is the epitome of modern Orwellian America.

A group of 51 middle schoolers from North Carolina traveled all the way to the 9/11 memorial and decided to sing the national anthem.

They were stopped — from singing the national anthem at the 9/11 memorial — halfway through by 9/11 memorial security because, well, it seems they didn’t have the proper permit.

Man Strips in Girl’s Locker Room, Cites “Transgender Rights”

“The law has changed, and I have a right to be here,” insisted an adult male who twice stripped in front of a girl’s swim team at Evans pool in Seattle. The man left at the bidding of a member of the pool’s desk staff. Officials who investigated the incident say that the man never made an effort to present himself as a woman – but under the relevant ordinance it’s not clear that this is necessary. Seattle Parks Department spokesman David Takami pointed out that “We have guidelines that allow transgender individuals to use restrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identity,” which according to current theory, and Obama administration policy, is distinct from biological sex.
