FEC - Details for Candidate Donald Trump

Huckabee Israel 'oven' comments trigger row

The US Democratic party has demanded an apology from Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee over comments he made about the Iran nuclear deal.

Mr Huckabee said President Barack Obama was marching Israelis "to the door of the oven" - an apparent reference to the Nazi death camps.

The head of the Democratic National Committee said the statement had no place in US politics.

She said Mr Huckabee should apologise to the Jewish community.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Psychopathy in Politics and Finance - Stefan Verstappen on GRTV

As more and more studies demonstrating the corrosive effect of psychopathy on government, finance, and business emerge, researchers have begun to explore how our society itself has been molded in the psychopaths' image. Now, one of those researchers, Stefan Verstappen, shares his insights on psychopathy in modern culture. This is the GRTV Feature interview on Global Research TV.

Neocon retreat?

As the Iran deal becomes a reality, Washington’s neoconservatives and their allies are bristling. A sanctioned and isolated Iran had long been one of their policy pillars. This is no longer the case. The neocon agenda has experienced a major setback. Is this a temporary reversal or a stunning defeat?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is also a stunning defeat for Netanyahu!

30 BLOCKS OF GOVERNMENT INCOMPETENCE

What is the point in spending millions of taxpayer dollars blacktopping streets which are crumbling from below? Why not fix the problems below before applying the blacktop above? Because the city is bankrupt. The infrastructure isn’t crumbling because they don’t have enough money. It’s crumbling because they have chosen to spend taxpayer money on gold plated pensions and health benefits for union government workers and teachers. They’ve wasted hundreds of millions on public schools that only graduate 50% of those entering and most of those graduates are functionally illiterate. They spend millions painting murals, giving tax breaks to mega-corporations like Comcast, and building sports stadiums for billionaires. The corruption, mismanagement, incompetence and stupidity of politicians, government bureaucrats, and union officials is breathtaking to behold.

Trump Leads GOP Polls Even After Controversial Remarks

Despite the very controversial comments Trump has made throughout his campaign, the billionaire is leading the Republican polls. According to a CNN/ORC poll, Trump is at 18 percent while Jeb Bush–who’s polling second–is at 15 percent. The poll also found that 52 percent of Republicans want Trump to continue his campaign.

In a NBC News/Marist Iowa poll, Trump was polling second at 17 percent while Scott Walker was in the lead with 19 percent. That same poll found that Trump was leading his GOP contender Jeb Bush by 7 points in the very important state of New Hampshire. In New Hampshire, Walker was polling at 12 percent, according to the NBC News/Marist poll.

Trump connected his high polling numbers to Republicans being tired of Washington politics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump is correct. We are ALL tired of politics as usual. The GOP made a major strategic blunder thinking John McCain's "star power" would be an effective weapon against Trump, as in the age of the internet most people know that John "Songbird" McCain's record is as phony as Saddam's nuclear weapons!

Huckabee tweets threats from Israel’s enemies to assail Iran nuclear deal

A series of Twitter posts on Sunday night followed a day after Huckabee said that President Barack Obama will march Israelis “to the door of the oven.”

Bolstering his argument of the potential harm the agreement signed by Iran and world powers earlier this month would do to Israel, Huckabee tweeted quotes from Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and Hezbollah’s leader, Hassan Nasrallah, among others.

“It is the mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to erase Israel from the map of the region,” read one of the posts attributed to Khamenei.

A quote attributed to Nasrallah read: “If they [Jews] all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Huckabee has gone way over the top with this "ovens" crap, but he is clearly trying to prove he can kiss Israel's ass better than Hillary, and Huckabee may be thinking that outrageous statements like this will garner him more media attention (which it has) and drive Trump out of the headlines (which it has not).

How Your Grocery Trip Could Change If Congress Bans GMO Labels

The House of Representatives has approved a bill that would block states from passing laws requiring manufacturers to label items that contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Jul 26 20:18

These are the U.S. Representatives who voted to ban GMO labeling and deny your right to know what you’re eating

“We should not raise prices on consumers based on the wishes of a handful of activists,” said Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), who just became consumer enemy number one after he decided to author a bill that destroys any chance Americans have of knowing what’s in their food, specifically whether or not they contain genetically modified ingredients, or GMOs. -- What Pompeo isn’t telling you, and in fact is deliberately covering up, is that Americans overwhelmingly support GMO labeling (we’re talking in the 90th percentile); you can view proof of that support here, here and here.

Clinton Favorability Plunges, Sanders Surges Amid Classified Emails Scandal

Despite all her proclamations of new fairness doctrines, false promises of her truthfulness, and exclamations of 'everyday Americanism' Hillary Rodham Clinton is seeing her favorability ratings collapse. As populist as she dares to be, in the face of her donating captors, it appears the everyday American just isn't buying it as Gallup reports just 43% Americans view her favorably (down from 66% just a few years ago) while none other than Bernie Sanders is bounding up the popularity ladder, rising from 12% to 24% favorability in recent weeks.

Whistleblowers should be paid for disclosing secrets (NZ)

The leaking of information can often perform a public service.

The Pentagon papers about the war in Vietnam played a crucial role in changing the American public's perceptions of the war. The secret informant named 'deep throat' (later revealed to be an Associate Director of the FBI) most famously leaked information giving rise to the Watergate scandal, and no-one seems to dispute the public good that such achieved, even though (or perhaps because) its fallout included the downfall of a US President.

The debate currently circling around Ed Snowden and his continued release of sensitive intelligence information he obtained as a contractor for the US National Security Agency brings into sharp focus the competing considerations operating. There is no consensus on the rights or wrongs of his releases, with opinion sharply divided, as to whether he is a hero or a traitor.

What was at first announced as a new Turkish turn toward attacks on Daesh (ISIS, ISIL) on Friday has quickly become largely a campaign against Kurds instead. It is being alleged that the Turkish Air Force launched dozens of strikes against bases of the Kurdistan Workers Party over the border in Iraq on Saturday, and just 4 against Daesh positions in Syria.

The Crashing Matrix and Last Ditch Trans-Everything Agenda

The outdated matrix programming by the engineers of deceit can’t keep up. The vibrational changes are exceeding their capabilities. The imitators of creation can’t maintain a current operating system any longer in the face of this massive Universal shift we’re undergoing.

And it’s driving them nuts.

Just look at the desperation we’re witnessing. Crude military and police state maneuvers are only one aspect, of course working in concert with dastardly economic manipulations and an outlandish propaganda barrage. The biggest clue is seeing the previously incremental and now hyperbolic use of technocratic programs from mass surveillance and data gathering to the advent of cyber warfare and artificial intelligence, while crazed maniacs at CERN try to crack into other dimensions.

The magnitude and desperation of their insane agenda has become completely transparent to just about anyone.

Ted Cruz Sells His Soul to Frackers for $15 Million

While Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are bringing in a sizeable number of donations of under $100, Republicans have been going for the big money, like the huge score Ted Cruz just made from a pair of Texas frackers.

Even so, on July 16, Newsmax made a big deal of Hillary receiving donations from wealthy individuals, with the headline, “Hillary Clinton’s Donations From Hedge Fund Titans Exceed Republicans.”

It’s time for American Jews to recognize they have been duped

As a long-time activist for Palestinian rights and an anti-Zionist, I should have been pleased to read that American Jews increasingly question their knee-jerk support for Israel. But instead, I felt a familiar frustration. Jewish American support for Israel has always been vital for Israel and not just for economic reasons. Among other things, Jewish American money and corporate support have been fundamental to Israel’s creation and to its infrastructure, and they enabled the development of Israel’s thriving hi-tech sector. But Israel also relies on Jewish American support for its feelings of legitimacy. As long as American Jews support Israel ‘right or wrong’, Israel feels justified in its existence and in everything it does.

CNN/ORC poll: GOP voters want more Trump

Most Republican voters want Donald Trump to remain in the race for president, and he's the candidate GOP voters are most likely to say they want to see on the debate stage, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.

Trump, whose campaign for the presidency has come to dominate much of the news coverage of the Republican presidential field since he formally announced his candidacy in mid-June, remains a person Republican voters want to see more of, and a sizable 22% say they think he'll eventually win the party's nomination for president

Did the DEA Help a Florida Task Force Hide and Launder Drug Money or Just Turn a Blind Eye?

The police department in a small South Florida beachfront community decided in 2010 to turn itself into Miami Vice and run a money-laundering sting operation to catch drug dealers. The operation, which ended up laundering about $70 million, did so with either the knowledge, or willful ignorance, of the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Teen Who Built Gun-Firing Drone Arrested for Assaulting Cops

It’s pretty obvious the system is making an example out of this guy to deter others from following in his footsteps.

Eighteen-year-old mechanical engineering student Austin Haughwout of Connecticut put up a video called “Flying Gun” back on July 10th that shows his homemade drone hovering off the ground and firing a semiautomatic handgun:

You know, the kind of stuff the military and police departments across America currently have right now. The kind of thing that could be easily built by pretty much anyone these days.

The video went viral and people began freaking out that a citizen could create such a thing. The FAA announced it was “investigating,” although no laws currently exist specifically against this.

It’s been a rough week for the IRS. On Monday it was revealed that during the last tax season, the IRS phone system hung up on 8.8 million callers looking for help with their taxes, a massive increase from the half a million hangups that were experienced the year before. The IRS is also being criticized for levying outrageous fines on businesses that reimburse their employees for health insurance; fines that are 12 times higher than the statutory limit written in the Affordable Care Act.

Agenda 21 in China and the Technocratic Vision for Global Dictatorship

By Rusticus

Trilaterals Over Tianjin

Tianjin is no normal Chinese city. Billed as a joint partnership between China and Singapore, Tianjin is one of the United Nations’ flagship “Eco-Cities.” In fact, it’s no normal “Eco-City,” either; the UN has a particular affinity for Tianjin, going so far as to hold its annual Climate Change Convention there in 2010. It’s a textbook “green engineered” Smart City as called for in the 1992 Rio Conference on Sustainable Development, colloquially known as Agenda 21; and despite China erecting these “Smart Cities” en-masse in recent years, Tianjin remains one the country’s only successful "sustainable" ventures...

Peter Beinart’s Fantasy – Raimondo

Does Beinart really believe the media complex that gives the War Party a guaranteed platform suffers from amnesia? I hardly think so.

Peter Beinart asks some pretty good questions: he wants to know why the same crowd that lied us into war in Iraq isn’t completely discredited when it comes to their opposition to the recently concluded deal with Iran. No, he doesn’t put it quite that way, in part because, by his own admission, he was one of the most enthusiastic cheerleaders for what he now describes as “one of the most important, and damaging, episodes in the history of U.S. foreign policy.” He frames his question this way:

“I have a fantasy. It’s that every politician and pundit who goes on TV to discuss the Iran deal is asked this question first: ‘Did you support the Iraq War, and how has that experience informed your position?’”

Beinart is right to regard this as a fantasy, because it will never happen. Yet he fails to ask why that is.

The War on Conspiracy Realists Continues

British government under Cameron's watch has been an active and willing partner in the Machiavellian strategy of divide and rule in the Middle East spearheaded by the US and Israel.

Obama picked up where Bush left off, flooding Syrian and Libyan insurgent groups with untold largesse and arms, using the corrupted Arab Gulf kingdoms as conduits for weapons transfers for the sake of plausible deniability.

ISIS themselves have mostly eschewed hostility towards Israel, posting an official statement on social media in July 2014 saying that they’re more interested in fighting “Muslim infidels” than the Zionist state.[6]

Israeli officials have expressed similar sentiments, with Israel’s former envoy to the US,Michael Oren, stating in a September 2013 interview that Tel Aviv “prefers” ISIS and al-Qaeda over the “bad guys backed by Iran,” namely Syria’s Assad and Hezbollah.

'DARK CLOUD' OF ALEC CONVERGES AT ANNUAL CORPORATE-POLITICAL LOVEFEST

Fighting to protect dark money. Attacking federal efforts to rein in carbon pollution. Undermining local democracy.

These are just some of the "hot topics" on the agenda this week as conservative lawmakers, corporate lobbyists, and top GOP candidates from around the country gather in San Diego for the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)'s annual meeting.

"A dark cloud is headed our way in the form of a shadowy lobbying organization that buys loyalty from state legislatures with untraceable corporate dollars and threatens the very fabric of our democracy."
—Francine Busby, San Diego County Democratic Party

"A dark cloud is headed our way in the form of a shadowy lobbying organization that buys loyalty from state legislatures with untraceable corporate dollars and threatens the very fabric of our democracy," San Diego County Democratic Party chair Francine Busby wrote in advance of the conference.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Come on, folks, the Democrats are no less complicit in this kind of behaviour than are their Republican brothers and sisters; look how the much publicly loathed mandatory vaccination bill was passed in California, and triumphantly signed into law by Governor Brown!!

As reported at the Sacramento Bee on 18 June, 2015:

"A subplot to the vociferous debate over the student vaccination bill moving through California’s Capitol is opponents’ allegations that the effort reflects the influence of the pharmaceutical industry.

Critics of Senate Bill 277, which would eliminate the personal belief and religious exemptions for schoolchildren, accuse the measure’s supporters in the Legislature of doing the bidding of donors who make vaccines and other pharmaceuticals.

The bill’s proponents and drug companies dismiss the charge. The companies’ lobbyist filings for the first quarter of this year as well as legislative committee reports show no connection between the pharmaceutical industry and SB 277.

“We aren’t pushing this bill behind the scenes,” said Priscilla VanderVeer, the senior director for communications for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, known as PhRMA, the industry’s main trade group. The group has no taken no position on SB 277, although the group has long backed vaccinations as sound public health policy, she said.

Other legislation has a more direct bearing on the industry, and it is an active political player. Pharmaceutical companies and their trade groups gave more than $2 million to current members of the Legislature in 2013-2014, about 2 percent of the total raised, records show. Nine of the top 20 recipients are either legislative leaders or serve on either the Assembly or Senate health committees. Receiving more than $95,000, the top recipient of industry campaign cash is Sen. Richard Pan, a Sacramento Democrat and doctor who is carrying the vaccine bill.

In addition, the industry donated more than $500,000 to outside campaign spending groups that helped elect some current members last year."

People had better start getting damned angry about the companies which control legislation at the state and national level; then, we have to figure out what we do to prevent that from happening, ever again, in the most peaceful way possible.

FLASHBACK 2013 - In Government, Nothing Succeeds Like Failure

The White House's decision to suspend enforcement of Obamacare's health insurance standards because of the website debacle was politically wise. (Its legality and implementation, however, remain uncertain.) But the main lesson we should draw from this incident is not that government can quickly change course in the face of failure. Rather, it teaches just the opposite: once Washington commits to a policy, it reverses direction only when waves of opposition engulf it.

Downing Civilian Airliners and Destroying Ancient Artifacts

Investigative journalist Robert Parry continues to report the use by the US vanguard of the MH-17 tragedy as a propaganda tool against Russia. The US claims to be outraged by the shoot-down, but its purported indignation was easily debunked at the time of the event, when commentators reminded Washington (leaving out many other acts) that it shot down an obviously civilian plane on a commercial route, Iranian Air flight 655, killing the almost 300 civilians on board. “The commander of a nearby U.S. vessel, David Carlson, wrote in the U.S. Naval Proceedings that he ‘wondered aloud in disbelief’ as ‘The Vincennes [the US ship] announced her intentions’ to attack what was clearly a civilian aircraft.”

It Cost The Koch Brothers Only $299,000 To Block Labeling Of Genetically Modified Foods

According to The Center for Food Safety: "Koch Industries’ subsidiary, Georgia-Pacific, is a member of the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which donated more than $7 million against the recent Washington State ballot initiative to label GE foods. Monsanto, another GMA member, was the single largest contributor to that campaign. Between Washington State and California, Monsanto, GMA (including Georgia-Pacific), and others, have contributed over $67 million to keep consumers in the dark about GE foods."

Others quickly jumped onboard, especially those who would reap the biggest incremental profits such as biotech companies, and now the GMA and other industry groups like the Biotechnology Industry Organization are cheering Pompeo's legislation.

At the time, many were livid that a full-court press by a few corporations and even fewer billionaires would keep Americans in the dark as to the genetic content of the food they eat:

GOP Elites Plot to Bar Frontrunner Trump From Debate

As if we need more proof of how tone deaf and self-destructive GOP elites can be towards their most reliable voters, the New York Times reports that at a weekend meeting of the Republican Governors Association there was an attempt by some “donors and operatives” to come up with a plan to bar current Republican frontrunner Donald Trump from the presidential debates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The polls show Trump as the GOP's best bet against Hillary's presumed nomination, yet they are willing to throw that away because Trump won't play by their rules. That kind of decision making will likely drive a great many GOP voters into the Democratic camp, or to Trump's potential third party.

You Don’t Matter. House Votes for Monsanto’s Right to Deceive Consumers

On Thursday, 275 members of the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of H.R. 1599, the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act. By voting for the DARK Act, these politicians voted against truth and transparency, against science, against the more than century-old right of states to legislate on matters relating to food safety and labeling. They voted against the 90-percent of Americans who are in favor of mandatory labeling of GMOs. They voted against the producers of non-GMO foods.

Pentagon to expand training to Ukraine's Ministry of Defense troops; security assistance to regime will reach $244M

The United States will expand its training program for the Ukrainian armed forces, the Pentagon announced Friday. Currently around 300 soldiers from the Army’s 173rd Airborne brigade are training Ukrainian national guard troops in the western part of the country. Those troops fall under Ukraine’s Ministry of Interior and are not front line soldiers. This fall, however, the U.S. will begin training Ministry of Defense troops — front-line units that have been fighting against separatists in the east of the country.

Donald Trump Extends Lead In New Poll After McCain Comments

Donald Trump’s rise in the Republican contest for the 2016 presidential nomination doesn’t appear to have been slowed much – at least not yet – by the recent controversy over his criticisms of Arizona Sen. John McCain’s war record last weekend. In fact, although Trump’s favorable ratings among Republicans have declined, he is still ahead – and far ahead – when Republicans are asked to choose among the 16 currently announced candidates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People have a gut response in favor of the truth. Trump does not come across as your typical politically-correct "say anything to get elected", "never offend anyone" candidate, and people are responding to it. The GOP made a hideous strategic mistake trying to play up John McCain as some kind of hero above reproach, because in the age of the internet, the reality of McCain is well known.

Jewish Democrats Must Choose Obama or Israel

There are 18 Jewish legislators acting on behalf of the Democratic Party in the US Congress, and they are perhaps the key to victory on both sides - for both opponents of the agreement with Iran and its supporters.

"Everyone is looking for us," Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D - California), who is Jewish, told Arutz Sheva. "Last week I met with a J Street lobby that tried to explain how good the agreement is at this point in time, and next week AIPAC officials will be here - I guess to push exactly the opposite position."

Lowenthal faces a difficult dilemma.

"You have to make a decision regarding the transaction, and the situation is very tense. On the one hand Israel says the deal is not good, on the other hand the president says so."

Alan Lowenthal and another 17 like him will be forced to make the painful decision between loyalty to Israel and loyalty to US President Barack Obama's Democratic party.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This should not even be an issue. These are AMERICAN citizens who are elected to the AMERICAN Congress and paid AMERICAN tax dollars to serve the AMERICAN people! The wants of a foreign government should not even be on their radar, let alone considered an equal priority! If they want to serve Israel that much put them on a plane to Tel Aviv and never let them come back! No government can serve two masters, and a government that serves Israel cannot and will not serve the American people. A friend of Israel is no friend of America. In these dark times America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third!

Members of Congress opposing the Iranian nuclear deal don’t seem to care that it’s a multilateral agreement their longest-serving European allies support. Europeans are far from impressed that the US legislature has taken hostage the diplomatic roadmap on the nuclear file that they played a critical role in negotiating. GOP Republicans have clearly attempted to shift the debate from a vote on the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) announced last week to one on the US presidential legacy and US-Iran relations. If Congress derails the JCPOA before it’s even had a chance to be implemented, it will likely have troubling ramifications for US relations with a long-term ally, Europe, particularly on future sanctions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"To hell with Europe; we have to please Israel, first, foremost, and always!!!!!" -- Every member of congress who is a whore for Israel.

Iran war threats by Pentagon chief aim to ‘placate Israel’

Former CIA contractor Steven Kelley said the United States wants to placate Israel after Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter stated that the recent Iran’s nuclear conclusion would not prevent the US from using military force if necessary.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why does the United States, arguably the most powerful military on Earth, need to "placate" Israel, a nation half the size of New Jersey? As an American I am disgusted at the way our politicians grovel before Tel Aviv!

Clintons' charities got £50million of British aid cash: UK government accused of trying to buy influence with US power family

Tens of millions of pounds of UK aid money has been siphoned through charities linked to Hillary Clinton, it emerged last night.

British politicians – including Gordon Brown – stand accused of diverting huge amounts of cash through the organisations after falling under the spell of the US presidential candidate and her husband Bill.

At least £50 million of taxpayer-funded foreign aid money has gone to Clinton charities, which are at the centre of allegations in the US that foreign governments used donations to buy influence.

Israel’s attorney general to probe Netanyahus’ spending

-Israel’s attorney general has ordered a criminal investigation into excessive spending at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residences.

In February, Israel’s state auditor, the State Comptroller, revealed that a few of the taxpayer-funded running costs at Netanyahu’s official and private residences from 2009-2013 were excessively high, and called for steps to improve efficiency.

The Attorney General has requested inquiry into allegations that the official couple sent furniture bought for the Premier’s official residence to their holiday home in Caesarea, and that they used public money to pay an electrician to work at that property.

Netanyahu’s wife has also come under fire for her lavish tastes and abusive behavior against servants. Cleaning expenses at their private home averaged $2,100 a month in public money, even though the couple rarely stays there.

It also said they pocketed proceeds from recycling bottles that had been purchased for entertaining official guests.

New Illinois law does not make BDS illegal

Though it says the Illinois law is “troubling,” Palestine Legal points out, importantly, that it does not make Israel boycott activism, advocacy or engagement illegal.

Rahul Saksena, staff attorney with Palestine Legal, told The Electronic Intifada today that “boycotting Israel is a constitutionally protected right that cannot be taken away by state law.”

“While we should oppose any government action against BDS [the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions movement], we want to emphasize that the new Illinois law does not prohibit anyone, including students, from boycotting Israel or advocating for BDS,” Saksena said.

The US Campaign’s Ruebner had also pointed out regarding the federal law that “nothing in any congressional anti-BDS initiative does or could restrict our First Amendment-protected right to engage in BDS speech and advocacy.”

“You? A Tax Evader?”

It’s no secret that governments worldwide are broke. One country after another is cutting social benefits and taking other measures to reduce government spending.

Take France, for instance. It’s under pressure from the EU to reduce its budget deficit to 3% of GDP. That’s the maximum permitted under the Maastricht Treaty, the agreement underpinning the EU. Currently, it’s at about 4%.

To comply with these rules, France cut family allowances and reduced grants to local authorities. It’s also started a renewed crackdown against tax evasion. It even laid off 7,500 soldiers.

But that’s not all. France also recently expanded incentives for new residents. The incentives exempt from tax some forms of income generated outside France.

That policy will reduce tax collections in the short term. But in the long-term, French decision-makers believe an influx of well-heeled foreigners will help lower the country’s budget deficit.

The Russia-U.S. Conventional Military Balance

The sole real purpose of the US military is to regularly beat up on some small, more or less defenseless country, either in order to rob it of its resources, overthrow a government daring to defy the World Hegemon, or just to make an example of it. The US military was never designed to fight a major war against a sophisticated enemy.

FLASHBACK: Obama Campaign Is Modeled On Alinsky

Obama is not like other candidates, and part of this training is learning to mimic the methods he used before he was an elected official — back when he was a community organizer in Chicago following the textbook of legendary agitator Saul Alinsky.

Saul Alinsky wanted results

Rivals of Obama know that while he may at times appear to channel Martin Luther King Jr., his methods sometimes give evidence of his allegiance to Alinsky, who shunned starry-eyed idealists and recommended purging do-gooders from organizations. Alinsky wanted results. And his methods often forced the hands of elected officials.

Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky correspondence revealed

Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveals new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development.

Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.

Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

13 Rules For Radicals – Alinsky’s Guide For Activists

The end is what you want and the means is how you get it

MEGA BEX ALERT!!! - "U.S. Preparing to Release Convicted Israeli Spy Jonathan Pollard, Officials Say"

The Obama administration is preparing to release convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard from prison, according to U.S. officials, some of whom hope the move will smooth relations with Israel in the wake of the Iran nuclear deal.

Such a decision would end a decadeslong fight over Mr. Pollard, who was arrested on charges of spying for Israel in 1985 and later sentenced to life in prison. The case has long been a source of tension between the U.S. and Israel, which has argued that a life sentence for spying on behalf of a close U.S. partner is too harsh. Israel has for years sought Mr. Pollard’s early release, only to be rejected by the U.S.

Now, some U.S. officials are pushing for Mr. Pollard’s release in a matter of weeks. Others expect it could take months, possibly until his parole consideration date in November.
