Henry Kissinger is a world-class war criminal, with a robust resume of truly hideous crimes against humanity - from extending the Vietnam war so he could get a job, to the illegal Cambodian bombing that poisoned & killed 100s of thousands, to the deaths of 1.5 million innocent people for Indonesian dictator Suharto. In the New Hampshire Democratic debate last week, Hillary declared her appreciation for Henry-the-K:
CLINTON: "I have had the opportunity to run a big agency. I was very flattered when Henry Kissinger said I ran the State Department better -- better than anybody had run it in a long time!"
Surely other war criminals like Dick Cheney and the rest of the neocon/Likuds would agree with their war-loving mentor that Hillary did a bang-up job as Secretary of State, regime changing Arab leaders and displacing millions of refugee families, not for the security of the United States, but so that her other BFF, Bibi Netanyahu, could expand his Likud voting base.
We now know, for certain, that the ReePub Governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder, knew - in advance - that the water in Flint was extremely dangerous and that he, personally, took measures to withhold that information for his own, personal, political expediency.
New emails, obtained by the Flint Journal, suggest that Gov. Rick Snyder ordered the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) to keep mum about Flint lead test results as they figured out a way to best present the information to the public ...
[F]or at least six days MDEQ withheld important lead test results from Genesee County Health Officials — and the public. Emails obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, indicate that MDEQ later apologized to a county health official for the delay, saying the department was told by the governor not to share the results until a press conference ...
Bernie won BIG yesterday and our rulers hate it. So what's their media going to do to keep their phony-baloney jobs? Blame it on the KIDZ!
Nate Silver says the “most eye-popping statistic” from the vote in Iowa
was that Sanders beat Clinton 84 per cent to 14 per cent among
Democrats under 29. He won voters between 30 and 44 by 21 per cent.
Among those older than 45, Clinton won easily.
Left is treated as something truly deviant in the Washington/New York
... If you can't do the time. Kathryn Knott (25), whose father Karl is a Bucks County, PA police chief, has learned that lesson well. On Sept. 11, 2014 Kathryn and 14 of her suburban pals were bar-hopping down in Center City Philadelphia when they confronted a local-neighborhood gay couple, Zachary Hesse (28) and Andrew Haught (27), on Chancellor St. near Rittenhouse Square. One of Kathryn's gang, Kevin Harrigan (26), unprovoked, shouted, "Is that your fucking boyfriend?" in Hesse's face, followed eventually by, "So - you're a dirty, fucking faggot!" The suburb kids jumped the couple, holding Hesse's arms behind his back while Kathryn clawed at his face, slapped him and yelled, "Fuck you, faggot!" Another member of the suburb gang, Philip Williams (24) began punching and kicking Haught, leaving him in a pool of blood, unconscious, with 2 broken cheekbones and fractured jaw. Then Knott & her suburban gang just sauntered off, la-dee-dah, leaving the gay boyz bloodied and beaten in the street, later enjoying post-fight drinks and, no doubt, toasting their bravery at a nearby Irish pub.
Pretty good Super Bowl yesterday. On just the Panthers' sixth play from scrimmage, it was apparent that Carolina's O-line couldn't protect QB Cam Newton from Denver linebacker #58 Von Miller. He blew Newton up, stripped the ball and that was it. You knew from that moment on, just 8-and-a half minutes in, who was going to win this game - The Bronco Defense.
There are 32, white billionaires who own NFL football teams and they all attended Super Bowl 50. This is one of the few times reporters can get access to this important part of our nation's ruling elite. One of them, Robert McNair, the owner of the Houston Texans, was asked about his team's participation in the HBO reality series Hard Knocks during this pre-season's summer camp.
He said it was a net plus, although he was distraught over how much swearing there was and joked that Coach Bill O’Brien should introduce a cuss jar. I asked McNair if he was as sensitive to other offensive language, specifically the N.F.L. team in the nation’s capital’s being named the Redskins.
McNair told me that he grew up in western North Carolina, around many Cherokee Indians. "Everybody respected their courage," McNair told me of the Indians. ‘‘They might not have respected the way they held their whiskey, but. .?.?.’’ He laughed. ‘‘We respected their courage. They’re very brave people.’’ Put McNair down as not offended by "Redskins".
Our rulers' media has busted out the ol' Kim Jong Un is going to MURDER US ALL! again this morning with breathless bullshit about a rocket launch from North Korea. First of all, always remember two things when our rulers talk scary about Kim and North Korea; 1. this is a 33-year-old guy who's so sick and fat and out-of-shape he has to walk with a cane - at age THIRTY-THREE. He literally disappeared for 6-weeks at the end of 2014 due to multiple health issues with hypertension, diabetes and, maybe, syphilis. Yeah. He's really scary, alright. And 2. North Korea is a wretchedly poor, little country that can't feed its own people and is incapable of mass manufacturing even cars and household appliances - much less miniature hydrogen-bomb war-heads and a missile (not "rocket" - more on that later) to accurately and reliably deliver them.
Are you scared shitless that North Korea, a country that can barely build a car, will attack with precision-guided nuclear weapons any minute now? Or that ISIS, ISIL or whatever-the-fuck the NY Times' focus groups are calling the fake-terrorists this week will shoot you in your bed? Just remember, you are far more likely to be shot by a little kid in the United Snakes than by an international terrorist. So far, in 2016, there have been, at least, 26 shootings, by children, resulting in death in this country. Not one single Amerikan has been killed, yet, by a foreign terrorist this year.
Bernie Sanders and Hillary finally squared off directly against each other, without the other guy, last night in New Hampshire. This is what we've all been waiting for, right? Well, aside from nit-picking about the exact amount her Wall St. overlords have spent buying her (and Bill), the e-mail controversy no Democratic voter gives-a-shit about and some arcane, wonky blathering about Bernie's votes on 'derivatives' - there wasn't much there. They are both virtually identical on the social issues, so there's no opportunity for good Tee-vee sparks in that vein. But our rulers will not truck any discussion about the crucial issue in this election and the main difference between these two candidates - our hideously-expensive, idiotically-stupid, wars-4-Israel foreign policy that doesn't make Americans, or the world, any safer or secure whatsoever. A foreign policy designed solely for the expansion of Israel in accordance with the Oded Yinon Plan. Hillary and Bernie were both in the Congress back in 2002 when Bush/Cheney hyped their Weapons-of-Mass-Bullshit nonsense.
of the clubs our rulers' media keeps hitting Democratic primary voters
over the head with about Bernie Sanders is the "Americans won't vote
for a Socialist" panic-line. But, "oh yes they will" was clearly apparent in the Iowa Caucus, especially when breaking-down numbers, like in the CNN graphic above. President Barry won the Dem nomination and two national elections because, NUMBER ONE, young voters took the time & effort to actually go out and vote for him. It was so important to them that the percentage of 18-39-yr-old voters increased to 36% in 2008 & 2012, yielding about 46.5-million votes/election. By comparison, in the 2004 election, only 28% of this group voted - a loss of about 12-million potential voters, a majority of which would have gone to the Democratic candidate. But Kerry couldn't energize the young vote like Obama did - and, what is painfully obvious from the Iowa Caucus numbers, neither will Hillary.
Time to meet front-runner Ted Cruzer's rulers. His 3 largest contributors are hedge-funder/tax-cheat Robert Mercer ($11,000,000), big-game hunter Toby Neugebauer ($10,000,000) and The Wilks Family ($15,000,000). Mercer was a computer programmer at IBM who was hired away in 1993 to create demon-trading stock programs for hedge-fund Renaissance Technologies. These programs use algorithms to pound out millions of stock trades for penny-PROFITZ! off individual stocks. Those pennies eventually turn into billion$ for Mercer and Renaissance over the long haul. This demon-trading activity contributes absolutely nothing to the country's economy but does empty portions of pension funds into these asshole's pockets, so cities like Flint, Michigan are forced to poison their children with lead-tainted drinking water. Mercer just hates paying any taxes on the money he makes watching his computers skim for him so he funds ReePub tax-cutters, like the Cruzer, big-time.
The screeching, screaming & throwing poo makes for hard listening in our media today. Lots and lots'a opinions by the experts who are always wrong-about-everything. Big story is Marco's 3rd-place finish. Excellent news for him and the country as a whole, because? Bipartisanship. Our rulers and their media really want Marco to win because the bipartisanship means Liberals will just shut-up,Shut-up,SHUT-UP - so the rest of the country can hear the Serious! people whose answers, for everything, are Freedom Bombs™, regime-change and lowering the DEFICIT! (by cutting/privatizing Social Security & Medicare). Next is the noise about Cruzer & the Trumpster. It is unbearable. Then comes the Clinton/Sanders close race which, of course, as always, is bad news for Hillary and the Democrats. It also means that pundits will have to talk about Bernie a little which is a career-ender and scary They just hate mentioning him. But buried beneath the piles of news bullshit is Jebbie! He spent $14.9-Million in Iowa and got 5,165 votes - that's $2,884-per-vote. Jebbie!'s got about $60-Million left in his Super PACs, like Right to Rise!®. What if he donated that to, say, fixing the water problem in Flint? It would certainly be better than anything his presence at a New Hampshire donut shop and accompanying speech could do.
The Onion Newspaper breaks the BIG story on this first official day of voting for the 2016 campaign for Presidency of the United Snakes. Godsey has picked His candidate.
DES MOINES, IA — Declaring that all voting-age citizens who took the measures would be spared, Hillary Clinton ominously instructed her supporters throughout Iowa to mark their front doors with her campaign logo before sundown, sources confirmed Sunday. “All those residing in Iowa take heed: Your home shall bear the mark of my campaign this eve, or may God help you,” said the Democratic candidate.
The New York Times, a newspaper that's endorsed every stupid, failed Amerikan war from Vietnam to Iraq, and been wrong every-single-time, has endorsed - Hillary! for President. Today's fawning press-release editorial grudgingly admits that Bernie Sanders has done a better job campaigning than Mrs. Clinton, but he simply can't be president, because? Breadth.
Mr. Sanders, a self-described Democratic Socialist ... does not have the breadth of experience or policy ideas that Mrs. Clinton offers. His boldest proposals ... have earned him support among ... middle-class voters and young people. But his plans for achieving them aren’t realistic, while Mrs. Clinton has very good, and achievable, proposals ...
Remember Hillary's main foreign-policy-idea experience? Voting FOR the Iraq War-4-Israel. A Six-Trillion-Dollar mistake. The worst policy decision in the history of the country? Bernie saw the same bullshit Bush/Cheney pitched for that stupid war and wisely voted against it.
Our rulers finally allowed someone called Poppy Harlow to question Governor Ricky about poisoning those poor kids in Flint, Michigan. And although Ms. Harlow is certainly no Nancy Grace when it comes to 3rd-Degree on the Tee-vee, they did allow this weasel to squirm a tiny-little-bit for the cameras. Governor Ricky admits that Poppy's questions "make me feel terrible". But that's about it. Ricky obviously doesn't give-a-shit that his order to feed river-water to those children will hinder their learning development for the rest of their lives. Hey, he was just following orders. Of course, Governor Ricky should be answering these questions, in shackles, on a witness stand but we all know that our rulers will never allow that.
The ReePubs had a debate last night without Trumpkins (nor Carly!)
because he doesn't need FoxyNews to deliver mouth-breathers to the
voting booth any more. Trumpkins counter-programming didn't beat the
RNC in the ratings but it did provide an opportunity for the leftover
ReePubs to expose their desires with no considerations for reality,
unencumbered by the Trumpster's overwhelming presence. So what did we
"So let me be clear about one thing - there's only one savior and it's
not me. It's Jesus Christ who came down to Earth and died for our sins!"
Thunderous applause. Unanimous approval by all the other candidates.
Trump-less ReePub position is crystal-clear. They don't care about
anything but Jesus and strict adherence to His Deuteronomy, Leviticus
and the nastiest stuff
His Bible can deliver. We don't call it the Y'all Qaeda Party for
nothin'. So now there's no question: if you want a return to the 16th
Century, Feudalism and the Dark Ages, the ReePubs are your ticket.
Most anyone over 60 in the United Snakes has received slick advertising messages from something called the Wounded Warrior Project. Turns out this 'charity' is very good at publicity & branding - but maybe not so much interested in actually helping ... wounded veterans?
Since its inception in 2003 as a basement operation handing out backpacks to wounded veterans, the [Wounded Warrior Project] has evolved into a fund-raising giant, taking in more than $372 million in 2015 — largely through small donations from people over 65 ...
[I]t has become a brand name, its logo emblazoned on sneakers, paper towel packs and television commercials ...
It has spent millions a year on travel, dinners, hotels and conferences that often seemed more lavish than appropriate ...
Here's a video of neocon/Likud lackey, Hillary R. Clinton, having a good laugh about all the people - and families - she helped murder in Libya in August, 2011. At that time, her neocon/Likud sidekick, the New York Times, applauded her Libyan intervention MODEL, right on the front-page.
would be premature to call the war in Libya a complete success for
United States interests. But the arrival of victorious rebels on the
shores of Tripoli last week gave ... senior advisers a chance to claim a
key victory ... the conflict may, in some important ways, become a model for how the United States wields force in other countries where its interests are threatened.
First of all, the United Snakes interests were not threatened, AT ALL, by Libya.
It's a good thing
all the voters, even ReePubs, know what a lying scumbag and Wall St.
tool Jeb! Bush is. There's no way he's going to be President. Here he
is in a video from this morning's 'News' stating that Governor Ricky
and his gang aren't to blame for pumping poisonous, polluted
water into the homes of Flint, Michigan. Jeb!, calmly & evenly, explains it's not the
governor's fault. It's the fault of the REGULATIONS,
No one wants to talk about what really
caused those kids in Flint to be poisoned with lead. It was the
investment banksters back in 2005-6, mostly lead by Lloyd Blankfein
and his company Goldman Sachs, who took the sensible, lower-yield funds
in the Flint public-employees pension funds, cashed-them-out, skimmed
BONUSES! for themselves, and then bought worthless (but high-yield!)
The F-22 takes 42 man-hours
of maintenance for each hour in the air. About half of those
maintenance hours are taken with repairing its radar-absorbent-material
(RAM) coating. Availability has risen to 63 percent. F-22 pilots are restricted to 10 to 12 hours in the air per month due to an operating cost of $58,000 per hour, the Air Force simply can’t afford more than that ...
You always know the
Evolution argument's goin' South when the god-squad plays the
'half-monkey' card, as in: "Show me a missing-link, a

slower; much, much longer. Well, looks like, the 'missing link' - has

Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City who's main policy initiatives were: 1. Charter Schools (didn't work, just made it easier for grifters to steal public school money), 2. Stop & Frisk (didn't work, just ask Eric Garner - publicly executed for selling 'loosies'), and 3. The Sugary Drinks Portion Cap Rule (didn't work, just forced fatties to go back to the all-U-can-drink station), thinks he's the answer to Amerikans burning questions about who-the-fuck should lead us.
Galled by Donald J. Trump’s dominance of the Republican field, and troubled by Hillary Clinton’s stumbles and the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont on the Democratic side, Michael R. Bloomberg has instructed advisers to draw up plans for an independent campaign in this year’s presidential race ...
Mr. Bloomberg, 73 ... has indicated to friends and allies that he would be willing to spend at least $1 billion of his fortune on it ...
Mr. Trump said he would welcome a presidential campaign by Mr. Bloomberg, whom he called “a friend” and “a great guy.”
Mr. Bloomberg, he predicted, would “take a lot of votes away from Hillary.”
governor’s drive-through appearance in New Jersey was no aberration. As
Mr. Christie, a Republican, pursues a long-shot bid for the presidency,
he has nearly vanished from the State Capitol in Trenton.
Turns out that Governor Rick and his staff knew ALL about the hideous water they were pumping into Flint.
LANSING, Mich. — A top aide to Michigan’s governor referred to people raising questions about the quality of Flint’s water as an “anti-everything group.” Other critics were accused of turning complaints about water into a “political football.” And worrisome findings about lead by a concerned pediatrician were dismissed as “data,” in quotes.
Yeah. You know, "data", "Legionnaire's Disease", "lead-poisoning", "sick kids". That kind'a stuff. No big.
See this chart? (click to enbiggen) Some people still believe Hillary would be an okay President. Not great, but at least better than any of the ReePubs - especially Trumpkins! She's not. On the main issue that affects fiscal policy by far the most - wars-4-Israel - Hillary is exactly the same as all of the ReePubs. Maybe even worse. Wars-4-Israel make her main donor base happy and also, too ... PROFITZ! Here's an easy-to-use guide that compares Hillary's positions on the policies that will affect us the most with the policies of Bernie Sanders. Bottomline: a Bernie Presidency means more spending on infrastructure, health, education and good stuff for us. A Hillary presidency means more wars-4-Israel and the resulting screeching about DEFICITS! which means much less good stuff for us.
Here's some unedited video of the 'captain' of one of the two 49-ft Navy riverine patrol boats that breached Iranian territorial waters off Farsi Island - in the middle of - the Persian Gulf last Thursday. The Pentagon has not yet released his name and/or rank. We know nothing about him or any of the other sailors, or marines, who were aboard these craft when they almost caused World War III (if you listen to the FoxyNews).
Iranian Questioner: What problem, what mistake (caused you) to enter Iranian territorial waters?
American 'captain': It was a mistake, that was our fault, and we apologize. For our mistake.
Questioner: Why did you penetrate Iranian territorial waters?
American: It was a misunderstanding. We did not mean to go into Iranian territorial waters.
Questioner: How did the Iranian boat capture you?
American: The Iranian patrol boat came out when we were having engine issues. And had weapons drawn so we tried to talk to them until more boats came out and took us in.
