No One Knows How A Brokered GOP Convention Would Work

No one knows how a brokered GOP convention would work, but Cruz & Kasich are working together to force one

WASHINGTON Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich will start campaigning in coordination Monday, after making statements Sunday night that they would work together to deny frontrunner Donald Trump an outright nomination. A contested GOP convention would allow delegates to vote independently for who should lead the party’s ticket in November. Trump has 845 delegates and needs 392 more to claim the party’s nomination. David Lightman explains what could happen if Cruz and Kasich succeed in forcing a contested convention.

The 2016 Republican National Convention is shaping up as a free-for-all where every delegate is a kingmaker, rules could change and no one will have an easy time figuring out what’s going on.

Trump Laces Into Cruz-Kasich Collaboration

Donald Trump is lacing into an extraordinary collaboration between Ted Cruz and John Kasich aimed at unifying the anti-Trump vote in some remaining primaries.

Trump says his two rivals are colluding in a way that would be illegal in many industries.

Under the arrangement outlined Sunday, Kasich, the Ohio governor, will step back in the May 3 Indiana contest to let Cruz bid for voters who don't like Trump. Cruz, a Texas senator, will do the same for Kasich in Oregon and New Mexico.

Trump said in a statement that Cruz and Kasich are "mathematically dead" — meaning>>>

(*And with that , we now know if either Cruz or Kasich manage to get the nomination , The GOP will be putting a common crook up against the queen of all crooks , and only crooks will be voting in November , for one crook or the other )

Senate Majority To Obama: Boost Israel Military Aid

Large U.S. Senate Majority Urges Obama to Boost Israel Military Aid

More than four-fifths of the U.S. Senate have signed a letter urging President Barack Obama to quickly reach an agreement on a new defense aid package for Israel worth more than the current $3 billion per year.

Eighty-three of the 100 senators signed the letter, led by Republican Lindsey Graham and Democrat Chris Coons. Senator Ted Cruz, a 2016 presidential candidate, was one of the 51 Republicans on board. The Senate's Democratic White House hopeful, Bernie Sanders, was not among the 32 Democrats.

Will John Kasich Hand Trump the Nomination?

The best delegate trackers out there still think it likely that Donald Trump will fall short of the 1,237 delegates he needs to secure the GOP nomination on the first ballot.

But there’s one man who can cut a deal and instantly make Trump the de facto nominee: Ohio governor John Kasich. He would then probably be responsible for setting in motion devastating GOP losses in November of not only the White House but also control of the U.S. Senate. Kasich himself claims there is “zero chance” he would sign on as Trump’s running mate as part of a deal to deliver his delegates for Trump. But Lyndon Johnson said the same thing before he became John F. Kennedy’s running mate, and so too did John Nance Garner before hitching up with FDR in 1932.

Cruz Stays IN By Quietly Scoring Delegates

Cruz stays in the Republican presidential fight by quietly scoring delegates
***
Cruz’s efforts might be too little, too late. He significantly trails Trump in the overall delegate count and could be mathematically eliminated after Tuesday’s primaries of getting the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination before the party’s July nominating convention.

Before Saturday, Trump had 845 pledged delegates, followed by Cruz with 559 and Kasich with 148.

Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island hold primaries Tuesday, with most polls showing Trump with a double-digit leads over the field.

Intel To Lay Off 12,000 People

Intel to lay off 12,000 people. Is the iconic chipmaker in trouble?
The technology pioneer announced a new focus that shifts its business further away from its legacy in personal computers to the fast growing cloud and 'Internet of Things' industries.

As it navigates its path into the future, Intel, the 47-year-old corporation best known for making microprocessor chips that power personal computers, has announced significant changes to its business.

On Tuesday, Intel’s CEO Brian Krzanich said in a letter to employees that the company over the next year will cut its 107,300-person global workforce by 12,000 people, or 11 percent.

The move, said Mr. Krzanich, is meant to help transform Intel from a PC company to one that powers the cloud and the ‘Internet of Things,’ a term used to describe connected devices such as washing machines, coffeemakers, and automobiles. It also will save the chipmaker $750 million this year, says Intel in a public announcement.

Anti-racism protesters clash with police at Confederate rally in Georgia

Clashes erupted between police and counter-protesters at a far-right Confederate rally at Stone Mountain in Georgia on Saturday. Another rally held in Georgia the same day featured KKK and Nationalist Socialist Movement members.

Both events were held within 70 miles of each other, commemorating the upcoming Confederate Memorial Day, and featuring banners and signs, as well as Confederate flags. Over in the city of Rome, Georgia, the Ku Klux Klan, together with the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement and the Aryan Nation took part in a so-called “free speech” rally in front of the Floyd County Law Enforcement Center on Saturday.

9/11 truth poses ‘existential threat’ to Israel: Analyst

The recent media frenzy over Saudi Arabia’s possible role in the September 11, 2001 attacks is aimed at distracting people from much deeper involvement of Israel as the truth would endanger the Tel Aviv regime’s existence, an analyst in Idaho says.

Mark Glenn made the remarks in an interview with Press TV over US Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders’ recent calls on the American government to expose Saudi Arabia’s role in the 9/11 attacks that killed some 3,000 people.

“I think there's a lot about Saudi Arabia that we don't fully understand. And I want to get to the root cause of it. The root of what Saudi Arabia has done,” Sanders said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” aired Sunday.

Zuma wants trade with Iran to rise to $8bn

South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma said in Tehran on Sunday that his country plans to increase the volume of trade with Iran to as high as $8 billion by 2020.

Texas has lost 84,000 oil and gas jobs in the oil bust

Texas lost 84,000 oil and gas jobs in just 16 months, according to the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers, which has been tracking the impact of the oil and gas bust across the state.

Karr Ingham, the petroleum economist who authors the group’s Texas Petro Index (which has also been in decline for 16 months), announced the latest data at the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers annual meeting this past week in Austin.

An estimated 222,000 Texans remain on so-called “upstream” oil and gas industry payrolls – the part of the industry that includes exploration and production activity. That’s down 27.5 percent from a high of about 306,020 in December 2014.

Ingham expects tough times are still ahead in Texas oil, with more layoffs to come.

Oil tanker laden with North Dakota crude reaches Netherlands

A petroleum tanker laden with 175,000 barrels of North Dakota crude was being offloaded in Europe on Wednesday, the first such overseas shipment of the state’s oil since Congress lifted a 40-year ban on crude exports in December.
***
“It’s a big deal,” said Ron Ness, president of the North Dakota Petroleum Council, a trade group that represents about 500 companies working in the oil patch in the western part of the state. “Once you get a barrel to sea, it will fetch a better price.”

The ban on crude exports was put in place in response to the energy crisis of the 1970s.
***
“Where crude goes is where it gets the best value,” Roper said. “We are always seeking higher value. When the value is right, we will definitely do it.”

The company has said that producers could earn up to $14 more per barrel for domestic sweet crude by selling it on the world market.

Ness said lifting the export ban should help bring higher prices for North Dakota oil.

“The whole world is a market now,” he said.

US Lobbyists Meddling in Thailand a Concern For All Of Asia

By Tony Cartalucci

Thailand-based newspaper Bangkok Post in its article, “Yingluck denies Thaksin’s involvement,” refers to ousted, US-backed dictator Thaksin Shinawatra, removed from power in 2006 by a military coup after nearly two terms in office trampling the rule of law and the lives and livelihood of the Thai people, and claims that he has extensively relied on foreign lobbyists in a bid to return to power.

During this struggle to return to power, he has placed a series of proxies in his place, most notably his own brother-in-law Somchai Wongsawat who served as prime minister in 2008, and his own sister Yingluck Shinawatra who served as prime minister from 2011-2014 before being removed by a subsequent coup...

History of Nordic EU referendums holds lessons for British vote

With Britain’s noisy campaign over a possible Brexit polarizing voters, tight referendums over EU membership two decades ago in Norway and Sweden offer lessons how campaigns that stay positive and focus on ordinary people can swing voters at the last minute.

In the space of just two weeks in 1994, Sweden voted by 52.3 percent to join the EU, while Norway voted by 52.2 percent to stay out. They were two of the closest-run EU referendums in history, momentous decisions that split families, generations and political parties.

Both nations are relevant to the British campaign. Norway is touted as a model by Brexit supporters, with close EU trade ties despite remaining outside. Sweden is seen as a successful arm’s-length approach to EU membership, retaining its own currency.

‘NYT’ exposes Clinton as most hawkish candidate when it’s too late for readers to choose

The piece is an ode to Clinton’s “pugnacity” and her “muscular brand of American foreign policy,” with a celebratory chorus line of Robert Gates, Jake Sullivan and various functionaries. And lest you had any doubt about the newspaper’s point of view, there’s this foolish bonbon at the end:

It’s an open question how well Clinton’s hawkish instincts match the country’s mood. Americans are weary of war and remain suspicious of foreign entanglements. And yet, after the retrenchment of the Obama years, there is polling evidence that they are equally dissatisfied with a portrait of their country as a spent force

It’s not an open question actually. As Stephanie Schriock of Emily’s List told J Street last week, the mood of the people is isolationist, they don’t want to be engaged in foreign wars.

Firms that paid for Clinton speeches have US gov't interests

It's not just Wall Street banks. Most companies and groups that paid Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to speak between 2013 and 2015 have lobbied federal agencies in recent years, and more than one-third are government contractors, an Associated Press review has found. Their interests are sprawling and would follow Clinton to the White House should she win election this fall. The AP's review of federal records, regulatory filings and correspondence showed that almost all the 82 corporations, trade associations and other groups that paid for or sponsored Clinton's speeches have actively sought to sway the government — lobbying, bidding for contracts, commenting on federal policy and in some cases contacting State Department officials or Clinton herself during her tenure as secretary of state.

That is a close range reconnaissance radar station "Fara-1" that allows you to track and to destroy the enemy at any time of the day in the absence of optical visibility.

The device, according to the "Vestnik of Mordovia", entered into the service of a number of divisions.

Here's The Controversial AUDIO Of Paul Manafort Saying 'Trump Has Just Been Playing A Part On Stage'

REPUBLICAN ELITE NOW AT DEFCON 5

Ted Cruz, a gelatinous slice of Canadian bacon who is running to be your President, is officially toast. He's history. Kinda like a creepy mouth booger hanging on for dear life (you MUST clink this link) in the most interesting election of our lifetimes. Anyway, Cruz supporters plus a bunch of Neocons fossils like William Kristol, and establishment tools like David Brooks are all up in arms today about these benign comments.

These people are idiots. Every candidate projects an image on stage, and usually the best image projector wins the White House. That's how all elections work.

Chelsea Clinton Hints: With Scalia Dead, Supreme Court Will Make “Definitive Ruling” On Gun Control

Chelsea Clinton just said what everybody has been thinking – that the Second Amendment may not survive the next president or the next Supreme Court justice.

“My mom also recognizes the role the Supreme Court has when it comes to gun control. With Justice Scalia on the bench, one of the few areas where the court actually had an inconsistent record relates to gun control... Moms Demand Action and the Brady Campaign ... have endorsed my mom, they say they believe the next time the court rules on gun control, it will make a definitive ruling.”

Trump calls on Cruz and Kasich to end campaigns

'I think both should get out!' Donald Trump calls on Ted Cruz and John Kasich to end campaigns

The frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination is calling on his rivals to drop out of the race and begin the process of “unifying” the party.

In several tweets on Thursday, Donald Trump insisted that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have “no path to victory” and should step aside.

“Senator Ted Cruz has been MATHEMATICALLY ELIMINATED from race,” Trump wrote in one tweet Thursday. “He said Kasich should get out for same reason. I think both should get out!”

“Cra-Z-Art” Jewelry-Making Kits Offered At Stores In Rochester, Long Island, NYC, Syracuse, And Buffalo Found To Contain High Lead Levels

(Long Island, NY) Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced that his office has discovered high lead levels in parts of several children’s jewelry-making kits supplied by LaRose Industries and sold in K-Mart, Target, and Toys-R-Us stores in Long Island, New York City, and the Syracuse and Buffalo areas. In some instances, the toys contained lead up to ten-times greater than federal child safety limits. The same kits were also offered for sale in Rochester and by other retailers in New York.

Virginia Governor Allows Convicted Felons To Vote In Boost To Hillary's Election Odds

As the Richmond Times Dispatch reports, Governor Terry McAuliffe today signed an order to restore voting rights to more than 200,000 convicted felons in Virginia. The order applies to nonviolent and violent felons, and according to a confidential draft of research for the order obtained by the Richmond Times Dispatch, is authorized under the Constitution of Virginia. Why this surprising announcement now? As Reuters says, the "move that could help the Democratic nominee in November's presidential election."

In other words Hillary's elections chances just jump thanks to the support of convicted criminals as at least one state allowed them to vote. Expect many more states to follows.

CIA 'torture program: victims' lawsuit can move forward, judge says

Judge says discovery may begin in case of three CIA torture victims who were subjected to some of the most brutal interrogation techniques of post-9/11 era

A federal judge in eastern Washington state has ruled for the first time ever that a civil lawsuit brought by victims of the CIA torture program can move forward.

After hearing attorneys for the two contract psychologists who created the torture program post up against American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawyers representing three victims of the program’s most brutal techniques, senior federal judge Justin L Quackenbush said he could not dismiss the case.

Obama under fire as he threatens to send Britain 'to the back of the queue' if it votes to leave the European Union

President Obama sparked fury by pressuring UK to stay in the EU and telling its citizens their nation's stranding would be diminished if it leaves
A US-UK trade agreement is not going to happen 'any time soon,' Obama warned today
London Mayor Boris Johnson accused him of making an 'incoherent' and 'inconsistent' argument because the U.S. would never give up sovereignty

Obama faced a furious backlash overseas this morning over what has been called a 'downright hypocritical' push for Britain to stay in the European Union.
In a highly controversial intervention in the EU referendum campaign, Obama pleaded with British voters in a local newspaper and then the press conference not to cut ties with Brussels.
'The United States wants a strong United Kingdom as a partner, and the United Kingdom is at its best when it is helping to lead a strong Europe,' Obama said during a news conference at Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

GMOs Produced through “Gene-editing”: European Commission Fails to Regulate New GMOs after Intense US Lobbying

The European Commission has shelved a legal opinion confirming that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) produced through gene-editing and other new techniques fall under EU GMO law, following pressure from the US government. A series of internal Commission documents obtained under freedom of information rules reveal intense lobbying by US representatives for the EU to disregard its GMO rules, which require safety testing and labelling.

The documents show that US pressure is focused on potential barriers to trade from the application of EU GMO law. They suggest that the EU should ignore health and environmental safeguards on GMOs to pave the way for a transatlantic trade agreement. The next round of TTIP negotiations starts on 25 April 2016 in New York.

Nina Holland, researcher for Corporate Europe Observatory, says:

New Report Proves US Law Enforcement Preparing for Rioting on a National Scale

By Claire Bernish

Fascism doesn’t often sweep in overnight and take over some hapless nation’s government; rather, it gradually seeps into the cultural fabric — as is quietly taking place all around the globe, evidenced by an upsurge in sales of riot equipment that has gone largely unnoticed.

A new report from analysts with industry research group, Sandler Research, forecasts the Global Riot Control System Market for the next four years — but beyond a burgeoning market to parallel the expanding global police state, it appears world governments are also keenly aware of civilian discontent...

BRICS Under Attack: Western Banks, Governments Launch Full-Spectrum Assault on Russia

when it comes to a country as large as Russia, with its vast military capabilities, consolidated and wildly popular political leadership, and growing antagonism toward the West, the tools available to the Empire to undermine and destabilize are in some ways more limited.

Indeed, in the context of Russia, the popular mobilization pretext does not apply, and so that weapon in the imperial arsenal is blunted considerably. But there are other, equally potent (and equally dangerous) methods to achieve the desired effect.

Russia is the target of a multi-faceted, asymmetric campaign of destabilization that has employed economic, political, and psychological forms of warfare, each of which has been specifically designed to inflict maximum damage on the Kremlin. While the results of this multi-pronged assault have been mixed, and their ultimate effect being the subject of much debate, Moscow is, without a doubt, ground zero in a global assault against the BRICS nations.

REVENGE OF THE VIKINGS — ICELAND WILL CREATE ITS OWN MONEY

Back in 1914, the Bradbury Pound was introduced by the UK government as an ’emergency measure’ to bolster a failing economy. It was a huge success. The banking elite were unhappy, however and panicked – before managing to wrestle control of the money supply afterwards. President John F. Kennedy also introduced a similar ‘Greenback’ in 1961, and again, the banking elite were very unhappy about being pushed out, and losing control of the issuance of money as debt. JFK did not survive past 1963.

Did Wall Street Journal ad denying Armenian Genocide cross the line?

The decision by the WSJ to run an advertisement denying the Armenian Genocide was a judgment call, but it certainly seems to be pushing the limits of free speech, political cartoonist Ted Rall told RT.

Just days before Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day on April 24, the WSJ courted controversy by publishing an advert by a Turkish group denying genocide occurred. Armenia claims over one and a half million Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire were killed by Turks in 1915. Turkey admits Armenians were mistreated but denies any genocide took place.

US suicide rate hits 30-year high, female rate spikes while males are majority

A new analysis by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has reported that the rate of suicide in the US steadily increased from 1999 to 2014 after consistently decreasing from 1986 to 1999. The report found that greater annual rises occurred after 2006.

From 1999 to 2014, suicide rates increased for males and females of all ages between 10 and 74, the NCHS revealed Friday. Only those aged 75 and older saw declines in suicides in that time period.

The rate of suicide among women is climbing at a rate faster than men. The age-adjusted suicide rate for females increased by 45 percent from 1999 to 2014, as opposed to an increase of 16 percent for males.

However, males (20.7) still hold a suicide rate that is triple the rate of female (5.8) suicide.

Chelsea Clinton Says Her Mom Will Be Able to Pass Gun Control Now that Justice Scalia Is Dead

Hillary Clinton already made her deals with the devil a long time ago. The elite are obviously behind her, paving the way for her to win the nomination in every way possible.

So knowing all of that, here's her daughter Chelsea as she's pandering for Hillary on the campaign trail, just basically saying her mother will have a much easier time passing gun control that won't get thrown out by the Supreme Court now that Justice Scalia is dead.

Paul Craig Roberts: Washington Launches Its Attack Against BRICS

Having removed the reformist President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, Washington is now disposing of the reformist President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff.

Washington used a federal judge to order Argentina to sacrifice its debt restructuring program in order to pay US vulture funds the full value of defaulted Argentine bonds that the vulture funds had bought for a few pennies on the dollar. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jun/27/us-vulture-funds-argentin... These vultures were called “creditors” who had made “loans” regardless of the fact that they were not creditors and had made no loans. They were opportunists after easy money and were used by Washington to get rid of a reformist government.

President Kirchner resisted and, thus, she had to go. Washington concocted a story that Kirchner covered up an alleged Iranian bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994. This implausible fantasy, for which there is no evidence of Iranian involvement, was fed to one of Washington’s agents in the state prosecutor’s office, and a dubious event of 22 years ago was used to clear Kirchner out of the way of the American looting of Argentina.

SECRET COURT TAKES ANOTHER BITE OUT OF THE FOURTH AMENDMENT

Defenders of the NSA's mass spying have lost an important talking point: that the erosion of our privacy and associational rights is justified given the focus of surveillance efforts on combating terrorism and protecting the national security. That argument has always been dubious for a number of reasons. But after a November 2015 ruling [.pdf] by the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) was unsealed this week, it's lost another chunk of its credibility. The ruling confirms that NSA's warrantless spying has been formally approved for use in general criminal investigations. The national security justification has been entirely blown.

The amicus appointed by the FISC, Amy Jeffress a former DOJ attorney, argued:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This program violates the 4th Amendment, which guarantees Americans freedom from unreasonable search and seizure.

This is why the 4th Amendment was created: to enshrine these rights in the Bill of Rights.

I would politely suggest that the FISC court has absolutely no reason for being in the first place, except to guarantee some judicial bureaucrats the only jobs they could find when they realized that were pathologically incapable of being employed in the private sector.

AFTER FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM, 76-YO VET SENTENCED TO DIE IN PRISON FOR TREATING HIS ILLNESS WITH CANNABIS

As public frustration helps sound the death knell for the drug war, its arbitrary laws and policies appear even more absurd. In the latest inexcusable enforcement of an antiquated law, 76-year-old disabled veteran Lee Carroll Brooker will live out what should be his golden years behind bars — for simple possession of cannabis.

Brooker had been treating multiple chronic conditions with cannabis he grew in his son’s backyard; but when officials in Alabama officials discovered the three dozen plants, they threw him in prison for life — without the possibility of parole.

Thanks to a pointless mandatory minimum sentencing catchall — and the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear his case this week — Brooker has been left little recourse but to ultimately die in jail for treating his ailments with a plant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The prosecutor in this case must be very pleased with himself; another scalp on the belt, I am sure, must have made him nothing less than ecstatic.

And that the Supreme Court refused to hear it makes them culpable in the quicker death this man in prison than he would most likely have had outside of captivity.

But the way this case came down, on a 76 year old, decorated Veteran, dealing with multiple, chronic illnesses has to be insult to injury, and never should have happened.

This is what happens when you have a "one size fits all" piece of legislation which is so clumsily constructed that there is no room for either mercy or justice.

"A Guide To 9-11 Lies - Hijacker issue irrelevant to determining blame"

Probably because of recent incendiary remarks by presidential candidate Donald Trump about former President George W. Bush’s involvement with 9/11 and the fictitious charges he manufactured to justify his criminal invasion of Iraq, the debate over who was responsible for the destruction of the Twin Towers and the deaths of 3,000 people in New York City has reemerged as a hot topic in mainstream media.

Commentators and politicians are lining up to once again try to implicate Saudi Arabia as the actual perpetrators of the colossal disaster because of their alleged support for the men blamed for piloting jetliners into the World Trade Center.

But the emphasis on the nationality of the so-called hijackers reveals the recent attention given to the subject to be yet another fraud perpetrated by the kosher media moguls trying mightily to cover up the principal role of Israel and Jew traitors in the American government in the greatest crime in American history.

There is no possible way Hillary will release the transcripts of those speeches because they would reveal how much she is in their corner. Hillary’s response is simply that she does not believe the people are interested in those transcripts. Like her illegal server, she is the most secretive person in Washington circles in many years.

The New McCarthyism – The “Anti-Semitism” Hysteria Gripping the UK

Tony Greenstein has been suspended from the Labour Party for alleged anti-Semitism. Tony is 100% Jewish from an Orthodox family. But he is also one of the founders of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, and in the current hysterical witch-hunt, being pro-Palestinian rights is sufficient indication of anti-Semitism. Just as making herbal medicine used to make you a witch.

The catalyst for the campaign is that one of the clearest dividing lines between Blairites and Corbyn supporters is Israel. Blairites are unanimously, unequivocally pro-Israel and prepared to defend even the most blatantly disproportionate Israeli attacks on Gaza, land grabs or checkpoint shootings as self-defence. Corbyn supporters unanimously have more sympathy for the plight of the Palestinians and are critical of what they view (and I agree) as the apartheid state Israel has developed.

Ah yes. The modern art of flying. Such a privilege.

Video: Why the Central Bank Dropped Jackson on the $20 & Kept Hamilton on the $10

Let's not pretend that dollar isn't a tool of enslavement… Behind the news that Harriet Tubman will appear on the face of the $20 bill is a hidden struggle between the faction that wanted to kill the private central bank in America, and the faction that empowered it.

Originally, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew was going to replace Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first Treasury secretary, on the $10 bill in favor of a woman's face (originally it was going to be Susan B. Anthony)

But former Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke was "appalled" and launched a revolt to oust President Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill instead.

Why? Because Hamilton, on the $10, instituted a central bank and fought for strong central government, while Jackson, on the $20, vowed to kill the central bank.
