Russia, China & Independent Allies Forming 'New Alliance in Opposition to US

The growing alliance between Russia and China represents a challenge to the US control of the world's money markets which will lead to a fundamental change in global politics, Iranian political scientist Abdoulkarim Firouzkalaei told Sputnik Persian.

"One of the most important reactions by Russia, aimed at reducing the effects of Western sanctions and strengthening the country's economy, has been the expansion of cooperation with China," Firouzkalaei said.

"Russia and China are carrying out transactions in national currencies. By not using the dollar when it does business with China, Russia is immune from the US threat to switch off the SWIFT payment system," Firouzkalaei said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what President Obama was thinking, by ordering sanctions against Russia for allegedly "annexing" Crimea, after the putsch in Ukraine; did he not understand that these sanctions would, literally, bring Russia and China far closer together, at every level?!?

Apparently, not.

Tinfoil: It's Getting Harder To Leave Home Without It

So now let’s really get into the weeds: What if “elites” or whatever term you want to use for people who think they know what is best for the rest of society, rather, than leaving that up to society itself, and have concluded no matter who wins the election, this whole charade of market stability is about ready to collapse upon itself like a house of cards at any time?

And any time is weeks, or months, not years. What would one do? Wait, and try to deal with the fallout in real-time? Or, bring it down of your own volition and have it fall in some type of controlled demolition experiment of one’s choosing?

I think when it comes to “elites” they believe they can control anything if they are the one’s that initiate it. So, I would go with the latter. And if so, what does that look like? Well, consider this….

4 in 10 Britons living in ‘squalid, below-standard homes,’ claims housing charity

More than four in 10 homes in Britain are falling short of an acceptable standard to live in, with many not having hot or cold water and being infested with mold or pests, according to an alarming new report.

The housing charity Shelter asked Britons if their homes met a series of conditions which together make up what it calls the “Living Home Standard,” and 43 percent of homes apparently failed the test.

Seven more Hillary Clinton scandals exposed by WikiLeaks

The avalanche dump of emails from John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, keep coming from WikiLeaks, exposing the insider nature and corruption within the Clinton campaign and Democratic Party. Here’s an updated list.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Clinton Cabal is criminal, and brilliantly connected to the highest financial echelons both in this country and the world.

Do you think, for one moment, that she will actually represent We the People, rather than her elite buddies, if she wins/steals this election?!?

In the immortal words of the TV character Tony Soprano, "FUGGETABOUTIT!"

WHO WAS PODESTA TALKING TO? IN JANUARY 2008 HE SAID "ECONOMY IS GOING IN THE SHITTER"

This is super fascinating. The current chairman of the 2016 Clinton presidential campaign, John Podesta, knew the economy was headed for trouble at the start of January 2008---long before the financial crisis was in full bloom. He made this clear in an email.This is the first indication anywhere of an individual linked closely to high levels of the United States government indicating that he was aware of serious problems so early, that were developing for the economy. How did he know it? Who was he talking to?

On January 9, 2008, Podesta sent and email to top Hillary confidant and current president of the Center for American Progress, Neera Tanden, who was at the time the policy director for the 2008 Hillary Clinton campaign. In the email (via Wikileaks), he wrote:

Back to making the policy director relevant and not to be too wonky, but a good time to get out a substantive economy speech, ie economy is going in the shitter-here's what we need to do about it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It was common knowledge among the elites that the US economy was about to take a huge fall; of course, they wanted to keep that to themselves as long as humanly possible.

More Than 1 Million to Lose Obamacare Plans as Insurers Quit

A growing number of people in Obamacare are finding out their health insurance plans will disappear from the program next year, forcing them to find new coverage even as options shrink and prices rise.
At least 1.4 million people in 32 states will lose the Obamacare plan they have now, according to state officials contacted by Bloomberg. That’s largely caused by Aetna Inc., United Health Group Inc. and some state or regional insurers quitting the law’s markets for individual coverage.

Sign-ups for Obamacare coverage begin next month. Fallout from the quitting insurers has emerged as the latest threat to the law, which is also a major focal point in the U.S. presidential election. While it’s not clear what all the consequences of the departing insurers will be, interviews with regulators and insurance customers suggest that plans will be fewer and more expensive, and may not include the same doctors and hospitals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Benjamin Wakana; upon your statement of October 5th, our very delicate, and expensive, BEM (Bovine Excrement Meter) convulsed, and re-kitted. I am sorry, but I am going to have to charge your agency with replacement costs, upon having lied through your teeth in making those statements.

Congress, and the health insurance companies which engineered this legislation, knew this was going to happen, at the end of the day.

They just hoped it would happen at a point in the election cycle when no one would be paying attention;. well, surprise, surprise!!

There will be a lot of ticked off voters, come November 8th, who will have had their, and their kids', insurance cut off, with no recourse, even with higher rates.

And I can almost bet on Clinton's "solution" to the problem: euthanasia vans, out in force, to insure that those without insurance won't have to worry about coverage for themselves and their families, any more!!

RT: NatWest 'freezes Russian channel's UK bank accounts'

NatWest bank has frozen the accounts of Russia's state-run broadcaster RT, its editor-in-chief says.

Margarita Simonyan tweeted: "They've closed our accounts in Britain. All our accounts. 'The decision is not subject to review.' Praise be to freedom of speech!"

RT says the bank gave no explanation for its decision.

It said the entire Royal Bank of Scotland Group, of which NatWest is part, was refusing to service RT.

The broadcaster, previously known as Russia Today, says NatWest wrote to its London office saying: "We have recently undertaken a review of your banking arrangements with us and reached the conclusion that we will no longer provide these facilities."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another good reason for people to quit using banks and go back to using cash, as the banks are starting to think we are slaves rather that merely customers!

2-minute satire: Clinton/Trump croon for more illegal Wars of Aggression, bankster looting, lying. Will you pay for that song and dance from US Left and Right arms of .01% rogue state empire, or start a real party of peace, prosperity, and truth?

Trump’s “hints” of truth are only that, as certainly any honest advisor would lay-out the facts as strongly as you read here.

A Glimpse into Jewish Guilt and Aggression

Some Jews were not delighted by Donald Trump’s recent reference to ‘International Bankers”. Trump declared this week that his rival Hillary Clinton is somehow “an instrument of a vast conspiracy involving scads of money and international banks”

You may note that Trump didn’t refer to Jews nor did he point out any ethnicity or religious group. However, Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, was quick to react using the twitter platform. “Trump should avoid rhetoric and tropes that historically have been used against Jews and still spur antisemitism,” Greenblatt said and then added “Let’s keep hate out of campaign.”

One may wonder at this stage why a leading American Jew sees ‘hatred’ in Trump’s critical reference to ‘International Banking’?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Methinks the CEO doth protest too much!

An Inside Look At Two "Unrelated" Banker Suicides Reveals A Fascinating Rabbit Hole

It has been nearly four years since one of the most infamous, and still largely unexplained, banker "suicides" took place, the first in a series of many: we are talking about the death of the director of communications at Monte dei Paschi di Siena, David Rossi, who allegedly jumped to his death on March 6, 2013.

Since this event has largely faded away from the public consciousness here is a quick recap: David Rossi, who was the head of communications for Monte dei Paschi di Siena bank, which was founded in 1472 and which is currently seeking to finalize its third bailout since the financial crisis, died after falling - or being pushed - from a third floor window of the bank's headquarters in a 14th century palazzo in the Tuscan city of Siena.

The Transformation of the Economic World as we know it into a Grander Illusion

The economic system of the world post the 2008 financial meltdown has morphed silently into a newer world order. What we have today is a shadow of the old system of capitalism. If I am forced to give it a name I will call it an “economic grander illusion” which is a remnant of the system gone by. This economic grander illusion is pretty much fuelled by the residual momentum of capitalism. There properly were more than likely thousands of these events in the unrecorded mists of time that spans through the millions of years of the history of the world.

FACEBOOK - No thumbnail image when I share a link?!

I've given up asking, complaining, and trying to debug debugger! I asked them to explain what I needed to do - no answer. I can only conclude, my dear friends, it's not us - it's them. We can only wait it out while they get things settled down with the whole new News Feed bumble. Hope we all get our thumbnails back soon. My blog has seen a definite slow down since I've been posting information without a thumbnail. People really are drawn to posts with a visual image. Arrrrgh! FIX IT Facebook! *sigh* Thank you.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In my case, the images that fail to show a preview/thumbnail are inevitably the humorous images I do about Hillary, so it is intentional, and it is politically motivated.

If Trump overcomes the vote fraud and gets the White House, it will be time to crowd-fund a new social media platform that respects the First Amendment.

A new federal court ruling has huge significance for military reservists

This is beyond the Pale. Don't fight for these warmongering traitors in dc. The VA kills vets outright and then leaves the bodies to rot. Now the courts have made it okay to fire reservists. WTF! These dc rats are making the whole planet their enemy!

A high-level federal court on Friday delivered a blow to the rights of military reservists.

The case involved a Navy reservist who claimed that his civilian employer fired him because he was mobilized and deployed to Afghanistan, a violation of federal laws designed to protect reservists from discrimination based on their military service. But Kevin Ziober lost his case before the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, one step below the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled that his pre-employment arbitration agreement prohibited him from suing his former employer.

Rise of the Alpha Return of the Tribe

As the dust settles and our corporate/marxist super state and it’s mandates are left to the dustbins of history those tribes will find common ground. But only so long as they are left to their own devices and only so long as there are good, honorable and strong men to shine the light. The irony being, that in order to save classic liberalism and individual liberty we must let the states that were originally born to carry them into the future, fail. Although the body will perish, the spirit can and will survive through the clan and its natural extension – the tribe.

US Lights Fuse in Syria to World War III Countdown

By Joachim Hagopian
October 15, 2016
At this 11th hour 59th minute while we’re still alive, we must do everything in our collective power as peace-loving citizens of the world to stop the madness bent on destroying life on planet earth. An unbroken stream of treasonous Washington neocons from the seamless Bush-Clinton-Obama ad nauseam regime is recklessly pushing humanity off the doomsday cliff. The DC despots have already lit the now burning fuse countdown to World War III against the Russian-Chinese-Iranian Eastern alliance. If we passively wait any longer, millions will soon be dying and our planet may lay in apocalyptic ruin.

Donald Trump Cannot Be Brought Down By The Hillary-Loving Mainstream Media

It's no news to anyone that Trump is facing some rough times. He is fighting the entire Democratic party, traitors within the ranks of the Republican party, and just about the entire Mainstream Media. It is clear to both sides that the "system" is out to discredit and smear the Trump name.

What isn't so clear, especially if all you do is watch MSM garbage, is the fact that Donald Trump cannot be brought down. This movement is bigger than Trump and the people have had enough. No matter what his enemies do, his support continues to grow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Americans have an inherent sense of fair play, and the more the establishment attacks Trump, the more people support him. Donald Trump is a giant middle finger by the American people to the status quo!

DROWNING IN DEBT: 35 PERCENT OF ALL AMERICANS HAVE DEBT THAT IS AT LEAST 180 DAYS PAST DUE

More than a third of all Americans can’t pay their debts. I don’t know about you, but to me that is a shocking figure. As you will see below, 35 percent of the people living in this country have debt in collections. When a debt is in collections, it is at least 180 days past due. And this is happening during the “economic recovery” that the mainstream media keeps touting, although the truth is that Barack Obama is going to be the only president in United States history to never have a single year when the economy grew by at least 3 percent. But at least things are fairly stable for the moment, and if this many Americans are having trouble paying their bills right now, what are things going to look like when the economy becomes extremely unstable once again.

The 35 percent figure is a nugget that I discovered in a CNN article about Detroit that I was reading earlier today…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yikes! I knew credit card debt was a real problem in this country, but I had no idea it was this bad!!.

For those who can, please try to extricate yourself from this as soon as you can; but I know that for others, given the economic situation in many parts of the country, this is almost impossible.

Jews furious at Trump’s ‘international bankers’ speech

The Republican presidential candidate never mentioned Jews in his prepared text, which he read from teleprompters with some extemporization. But in declaring that his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, is somehow an instrument of a vast conspiracy involving scads of money and “international banks,” he entered what many saw as a territory, real and ideological, where hostility to Jews perpetuates and thrives even in their absence.

“Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors,” Trump said.

Kashmir: ‘Pivoting’ Toward War between India and Pakistan?

This past summer witnessed yet another people’s uprising in one of the longest running military occupations in modern times: the Indian occupation of Kashmir. The callous indifference to decades-old Indian atrocities against the people of Kashmir, including well-documented incidences of torture, disappearances, ‘encounter killings,’ rapes, and outright massacres, ought to put the international community to shame. This, after all, is a ‘conflict’ – a euphemism for a military occupation – that the UN and international law has clearly adjudicated on many decades ago, but Indian recalcitrance, Pakistani fumbling, and international criminal neglect have let the blood of Kashmiris spill uninterruptedly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact we may be looking at a US-government enabled Indian war against Pakistan, the next step will be for China to come into the fray on Pakistan's side.

As both countries are nuclear armed, we may well be looking at a regional, if not global, nuclear war here, unless the US government encourages both India and Pakistan to come back from the brink, come back to their collective senses, and encourages India to sponsor the long-awaited Kashmiri referendum, which would ask the Kashmiri people if they wanted to remain with India; become independent; or become part of Pakistan.

Without this happening, expect an escalation in bloodshed here, ultimately leading to war.

Wells Fargo's Fake Accounts May Go Back More Than 10 Years

The practice of opening fraudulent accounts in the name of customers who didn’t want them—often forging their signatures in the process—reportedly began at Wells Fargo as far back as 2005, if not earlier.

In 2005, a Wells Fargo secretary named Julie Tishkoff wrote to the HR department to report that she had seen bank employees creating fake accounts with forged signatures, the New York Times reports.

The Ruling Class’s Hatred of Trump is Different Than Yours

The master class’s fear and loathing of Trump – one of their own, sort of – can be detected in the normally Republican-leaning corporate elite. A recent Wall Street Journal report finds that not a single solitary Fortune 100 chief executive has endorsed Trump or donated to his campaign. Hillary Clinton has accepted campaign contributions funds from 11 of these corporate captains. Four years ago, just five F-100 CEOs gave to Obama while a while nearly a third donated to Mitt Romney.

In a recent Times editorial, the Wall Street executive Steve Ratter (the slimy financier Obama put in charge of his Wall Street-friendly auto bailout) noted the “paradox” of the super-wealthy business mogul Trump’s stark unpopularity with those in his own exclusive class:

SOUTH SUDAN: US EMPIRE STIRS VIOLENT BREW OF BLOOD & OIL AS CHINA THREATENS WESTERN HEGEMONY

The ongoing civil war in South Sudan has left at least 50,000 dead and nearly 3 million displaced. While incidents of rape, torture, and bloodshed ebb and flow with the tides of war, the conflict, and especially its political context, remains little understood in the mainstream media.

Indeed, the war in South Sudan has been flung down the memory hole with the typical neo-colonial disregard for the African continent and its people that has been the hallmark of Western imperial policy (and Western consciousness) there for the past five centuries.

If 10,000 job losses were ultimately to follow the 9,000 announced by management in October 2015, roughly one in five of the bank's workforce around the globe would be affected.

THE REAL DEPLORABLES

The real “deplorables” generally aren’t the people whom Hillary denounced as wholly “irredeemable,” or at whom economically secure commentators fulminate on a regular basis. More obviously “deplorable” are Hillary’s fellow financial, political, economic, and military elites who wrecked the economy, got us mired in endless unwinnable foreign wars, and erected a virtually impenetrable cultural barrier between everyday Americans trying to live fruitful lives and their pretentious, well-heeled superiors ensconced in select coastal enclaves. It is thanks to the actions of this “basket of deplorables” that we’re in the situation we’re in, where an oaf like Trump is perilously close to seizing the presidency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Michael Kreiger: I am stunned, upon reading this,because it makes you appear to be something of an apologist for those elite who have screwed up things so badly for the rest of us, as though you think that, somehow, the Republican and Democratic fat cats who have created the "FUBAR" economic, geopolitical, and social crises which define this moment in American history, really want things to change.

Sir, I can guarantee you, that as long as the money keeps continually flowing in their direction, they do not want to see any kind of change which will interfere with this, period, end of discussion.

As long as no catastrophe shakes their collective apple carts, they are absolutely fine with the economic and social misery they have created for middle class Americans, who find themselves, many times, through absolutely no fault of their own, offshored and outsourced, in terms of jobs which used to be the solid underpinning of American way of life.

So they wind up, if they are lucky, staying with family or friends, while they sort out their next move.

If they are not so lucky, they will be come a part of the disenfranchised living in Obamavilles, in destitution, despair, and utterly no hope for change in the future.

But regardless of their situation after losing their jobs, however,they are most likely about to become a part of a shocking, and much-ignored American statistic: over 94 million Americans who want to work cannot find jobs, but are not counted in the Bureau of Labor Statistics, because they have allegedly been out of work "too long to matter".

As reported at cnsnews.com in June of 2016:

A record 94,708,000 Americans were not in the labor force in May -- 664,000 more than in April -- and the labor force participation rate dropped two-tenths of a point to 62.6 percent, near its 38-year low, the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. When President Obama took office in January 2009, 80,529,000 Americans were not participating in the labor force; since then, 14,179,000 Americans have left the workforce -- some of them retiring and some just quitting because they can't find work.

Welcome... to President Obama's Amerika, Mr. Kreiger,where 94 million Americans are not counted in the Bureau of Labor statistics, because it makes the numbers..."look bad", for the alleged "job creation" President.

But the real danger in which the elite deporables have left us has less to do with with a potential uprising of angry Americans, (because they understand that any violent protests will be met at the state and Federal level "with extreme prejudice"), than the geopolitical peril in which the Obama Administration has placed this country by his moves, in anticipation of a potential Trump sweep of the elections, in order to potentially gift him with one, if not several wars before taking the oath of Office in January.

Relations with China have been soured by Obama's condemnation of it's behaviour at the last G20 in September,in China, and the "Oafish" Obama took the opportunity to accuse the Chinese government (host this year of the G 20) of "aggressive behaviour in the South China Seas".

Barack Obama warns China of ‘consequences’ for its behaviour in South China Sea

I would like to politely point out, Mr. Kreiger, that this is the geopolitical equivalent of "relieving oneself" in the face of one's host, and then declaring it was raining.

So now, Kim Jong Un believes (probably correctly) that he can experiment with developing nuclear weapons with impunity, because after this horrific slight against the Chinese government, is not likely they have any appetite to work with the US government to create a peace deal with North Korea in exchange for its dropping nuclear weapons development.

Then, you have relations (or, more properly, the lack thereof) with Russia.

The US accused Russia of having "annexed Crimea", after the putsch in Kiev, which was a boldfaced lie, when the US, the EU and the IMF generated the take-down of Ukraine's duly elected government, under Yanukovich, and "anointed" Poroshenko, a guy with family connections to money laundering; human trafficking, and drugs.

Victoria Nuland, Undersecretary of State for Obama, boasted of what the US had spent to destabilize Ukraine, as reported at 321gold.com:

We could fall into the abyss of war almost anywhere. In early 2014 the US sponsored a coup d’état in Ukraine replacing the legally elected government with their own specially selected thugs. US Assistant Secretary of State and Jewish Neocon Victoria Nuland express her admiration for the leadership and wisdom of the EU in a phone conversation over a non-encrypted device when she was quoted as saying, "Fuck the EU.” Nuland went on later that year to brag about how the US had spent $5 billion to destabilize Ukraine since 1991 using such incredible words in her speech such as justice, modern democratic government, human dignity, and economic health. She talked about how the paid for mob prayed for peace before rioting. How thoughtful of them. When the eastern Ukraine and Crimea later voted for reunion with Russia Nuland and the rest of the Neocons somehow forgot the words democracy and peace. So today the US and NATO blame Russia and Putin for the conflict in Ukraine when clearly it was a coup organized and financed by the US. I would ask any reasonable person to look at the actions of the US and the Neocons in Ukraine and try to convince anyone that the people of Ukraine are somehow better off with peace or prosperity. Nuland turned Ukraine into a Nazi run cesspool of corruption, blaming Putin the entire time.

So what was DC's Bizarro-world response to Crimea's deciding, in a free and fair referendum, to petition the Russian Federation to become a part of it?!?!

Why, sanction Russia, of course!! I mean, what else could DC do but blame Russia for something it absolutely hadn't done!!?!?

Then, there is the matter of Syria, where the US is using alleged "moderate rebels" with which to regime change Damascus, and end the presidency of the duly-elected Al Assad. Russia, at the request of the Syrian government, is making short work of ALL jihadists, US-government sponsored or not, and they are doing a good job of it. The US has even bombed a Syrian military site on Al Tharda mountain, and claiming it was an "accident"; but there is no such thing as an "accidental" bombing which takes over an hour, which happened here.

It is only a matter of time before Russian and US troops wind up at each others' throats here; the question is when, rather than if.

And to top it all off, Russia is now encircled by NATO troops in bordering countries; NATO has placed nuclear defense shields in Poland and Romania, claiming that they are to thwart any threat from Iranian missiles; but why, logically, would Iran be even thinking of doing this, after the P5+1 treaty?!? Would they not have a lot more to gain in trade from Europe than by pulverizing it with missiles, understanding full well that the US and NATO response would be to turn Iran in to an oozing puddle of ground glass?!?

So, logically, these missile defence emplacements are not at all about Iran, but completely about Russia, and Russian leadership knows this.

And lastly, Mr, Kreiger, since it has been your elites, which have put the US in such jeopardy, how in heaven's name can you begin to characterize Donald Trump as an "oaf", when it has been the oafish, pay-to-play, corrupt, keep- the-game-rigged in our favor" people who have created this crisis for this country and the world?!?

Can an "oaf" make the kind of money Donald Trump has made, even at the most conservative of estimates?!?Donald Trump's Net worth is $3.7 billion in US Dollars.

So, you seethe with enough resentment against Mr. Trump to poison the entire world,

And why?!?

Because, at his financial status, he should be "one of yours", who believes in "business as usual", even if that business destroys American jobs, and places us on the brink of World War III; it is because he absolutely is NOT "one of yours" that he may well win November's election.

And a heartfelt thanks, sir, for your having "outed yourself" by writing this article; you have just told your brother and sister Americans who - and what - you truly are, and whose interests you defend.

George Soros: ‘I Am A God, I Created Everything, I Control America And Hillary Clinton’

George Soros claims he is a god and “the creator of everything,” however the billionaire globalist also warns he is a “self-centred” god who believes “normal rules do not apply” to him.

“I fancied myself as some kind of god …” he wrote. “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.“ When asked by Britain’s Independent newspaper to elaborate on that statement, Soros doubled down: “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.“

Texans Are Cutting Back, Wheels Come off Houston Economy

Retail sales in Texas boomed for five years straight, from March 2010, their low point during the Great Recession. Sales tax collections jumped 46% from the first half of 2010 through the first half of 2015 – dizzying growth for a mature market! Given the size of the Texas economy, it helped prop up US retail sales. But by May 2015, 10 months into the oil bust, things began to sag.

Sales tax collections in September for sales that occurred in August dropped 3.5% year-over-year, according to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. And in August, sales tax collections had dropped 3.0% from two years earlier. This was only the second time since the depth of the Financial Crisis that collections were lower than two years earlier, the first time having been in June!

Red alert: Prepare for severe stock market crash, warns HSBC

The technical analysis team at HSBC is warning recent stock market moves look eerily similar to just before 1987’s ‘Black Monday’, which saw the largest one-day market crash in history.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

HSBC. You know, the bank which was laundering drug money while James Comey was on the board and given that sweetheart wrist-slap deal by Loretta Lynch!

Health law 'no longer affordable,' Dayton says

Minnesota's Democratic governor said Wednesday that the Affordable Care Act is "no longer affordable," a stinging critique from a state leader who strongly embraced the law and proudly proclaimed health reform was working in Minnesota just a few years ago.

Gov. Mark Dayton made the comments while addressing questions about Minnesota's fragile health insurance market, where individual plans are facing double-digit increases after all insurers threatened to exit the market entirely in 2017. He's the only Democratic governor to publicly suggest the law isn't working as intended.

Dayton's comments follow former President Bill Clinton's saying last week that the law was "the craziest thing in the world" before he backtracked.

Wall Street speeches reveal the real Hillary

The (true) story that Hillary Clinton is a liar on issues big and small, that she uses half-truths, deceptions and dissembling to cover up her reprobate behavior is an old one.

But it’s a story Hillary breathes more life into every day she moves closer to becoming president. The latest treasure trove of evidence: a WikiLeaks email dump chronicling her two-faced behavior in such dramatic tones that it should be required reading for anyone who thinks she has the temperament to lead this country. (She hasn’t denied the emails’ authenticity.)

20 Reasons Why It Should Be Donald Trump in 2016

He is not your ordinary politician. Yes, Trump is different. Guess what? That’s a good thing. His ideas – e.g., a sound immigration policy, returning manufacturing jobs to America, negotiating better trade deals – are not at all radical, but do go against the Washington status-quo.

You see, we’re supposed to select another perfectly malleable politician – a Republican not unlike a Democrat – who won’t shake things up too much while in office. Same ol’, same ol’. And you, little person, you are supposed to vote for more of the same and like it. But the American public has reached a tipping point – we’d rather gouge out our eyes than select another career politician or Washington insider. That’s just electing the problem to fix the problem.

Russkies at the Doorstep

In a year noted for crude political discourse, eagerly serialized in the mainstream media, the MSM are themselves bellowing anti-Russian rhetoric, conspiracy theory, and fear-mongering. Of the two “evil of two lessers” contenders, Trump is the one who regularly gets hammered, justifiably in the case of his anti-Muslim and other racist and sexist slurs, while Clinton gets a pass, even an A+, for her repeated verbal assaults on Russia and its president, even as she reeks of class hostility toward Trump supporters.

During the McCarthy era, the most perverse propaganda was about Russians hiding under beds; during the new cold war, it’s about Russians inside every telephone, computer, email, and website, while linking Putin to everything, says Guardian contributor Trevor Timm, “from Brexit, Jeremy Corbyn, Greece, and Spain.”

Record 94,708,000 Americans Not in Labor Force; Participation Rate Drops in May

A record 94,708,000 Americans were not in the labor force in May -- 664,000 more than in April -- and the labor force participation rate dropped two-tenths of a point to 62.6 percent, near its 38-year low, the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday.

When President Obama took office in January 2009, 80,529,000 Americans were not participating in the labor force; since then, 14,179,000 Americans have left the workforce -- some of them retiring and some just quitting because they can't find work.
