Immigration checkpoints catching more drugs than people

PHOENIX (CBS5) - The few independent studies about the effectiveness of immigration checkpoints appear to show they catch few illegal immigrants, but are responsible for the seizure of tens of thousands of pounds of drugs.

But the hassle and occasional suspicion less searches are creating growing discontent among the people who live near the checkpoints, or have to drive through them on a regular basis.

"Any time we leave our tiny community, we pass through a border patrol checkpoint," said Leesa Jacobson, who lives in the town of Arivaca, which is located 25 miles north of the Arizona border with Mexico.

Europe becoming irrelevant due to short-sighted anti-Russian policies – Gorbachev

After the Cold War ended, the leaders of the western world were intoxicated with euphoria of triumph, and they adopted anti-Russian policies that eventually led to the current crisis, Gorbachev said.

“Taking advantage of Russia’s weakening and a lack of a counterweight, they claimed monopoly leadership and domination in the world. And they refused to heed the word of caution from many of those present here,” he said. “The events of the past months are consequences of short-sighted policies of seeking to impose one’s will and fait accompli while ignoring the interests of one’s partners.”

Eleventh Circuit Upholds Florida’s Patient Privacy Law

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- In a victory for gun owners who simply seek medical care, not political philosophy, from their doctors, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit has upheld the NRA-supported Florida’s Firearm Owner’s Privacy Act.

This law was passed after an escalating series of events in which patients were harassed or denied access to services because they refused to be interrogated by their doctors about their ownership of firearms. The case, Wollschlaeger v. Governor of Florida, vindicated Florida’s attempt to protect patients from being forced to divulge personal information that is irrelevant to their own medical treatment.

Billionaire mogul and master fundraiser Haim Saban brought the A-lists of Hollywood and tech together Thursday at the Beverly Hilton to raise $34 million for the Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces.

Even by the standards of the always well-supported annual FIDF events, this year's dinner raised a remarkable amount for a single fundraising event, with major support from Hollywood moguls and studios execs. Interest has run higher than in past years because of Israel's recent struggle with Hamas terrorism in Gaza.

Newly discovered fossil could prove a problem for creationists

Researchers report that they've found the missing link between an ancient aquatic predator and its ancestors on land. Ichthyosaurs, the dolphin-like reptiles that lived in the sea during the time of the dinosaurs, evolved from terrestrial creatures that made their way back into the water over time.

But the fossil record for the lineage has been spotty, without a clear link between land-based reptiles and the aquatic ichthyosaurs scientists know came after. Now, researchers report in Nature that they've found that link — an amphibious ancestor of the swimming ichthyosaurs named Cartorhynchus lenticarpus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Young earth creationism is essentially the position that all of modern science, 90% of living scientists and 98% of living biologists, all major university biology departments, every major science journal, the American Academy of Sciences, and every major science organization in the world, are all wrong regarding the origins and development of life ... but one particular tribe of uneducated, bronze aged, goat herders got it exactly right."

If There Aren't Any Ebola Cases in the US, Why is the CDC Doing THIS?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) made an interesting announcement today via a press release:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has ordered $2.7 million in personal protective equipment (PPE) to increase Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) supplies to assist U.S. hospitals caring for Ebola patients. Products are being configured into 50 kits that can be rapidly delivered to hospitals. Each kit can provide the PPE needed by clinical teams to manage the care of one Ebola patient for up to five days.

It sure sounds like the government is expecting Ebola to become a problem in the US, doesn't it? But there really haven't been any reports of suspected cases in the news lately. All has been quiet on the Ebola front, so to speak.

Maybe there won't be more cases of the deadly virus in the US.

Or, maybe something else is going on.

Obamacare Goes Back on Trial: Supreme Court Agrees to Hear ACA Tax Subsidies Challenge

The U.S. Supreme Court agreed today to rule on the Obamacare case King v. Burwell, which asks whether the text of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act forbids the granting of tax credits to individuals who purchased insurance on health care exchanges operated by the federal government. The legal controversy arises from the fact that the text of the 2010 health care law limits such tax credits to individuals who purchased their insurance from an "exchange established by a State." Do those words cover the health care exchanges established by the federal government that are now operating in more than 30 states? We’ll soon find out.

U.S. Military Superiority Is Rapidly Falling Behind

If there’s one thing that America is good at, it’s going to war. After decades of falling incomes, overcrowded prisons, and outsourced jobs, somehow we’ve managed to maintain our military capabilities above all else. Perhaps movies, elections, and pop music are a close second, but they’re nothing to write home about. We make war and war machines, and that’s about the limit of our superiority these days.

However, that last bastion of superiority is beginning to fall apart, and it has the military-industrial-complex worried about our future (i.e. their jobs). According to Frank Kendall, an undersecretary for the Defense Department, we’re rapidly approaching a future where nations like China could reach a technological parity with the United States.

U.S. Pump War on Russia or Debt Bubble Collapse? Gas Is Now Officially Cheaper Than Milk

You've probably had more than one sigh of relief at the gas pumps lately here in America. Gas is averaging under $3 a gallon across the nation. In some places, it's under $2.50. Gas prices haven't been this low in nearly half a decade.

"It's stunning what's happening here," says Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service. "I'm a little bit shocked."

The national average price of gasoline fell 33 cents to end October at $3 a gallon and dipped Saturday to $2.995, according to AAA. That marks the first time in four years that gas has been cheaper than $3 a gallon.

When the national average crossed above $3 a gallon in December of 2010, drivers weren't sure they'd ever see $2.99 again. Global demand for oil and gasoline was rising as people in developing countries bought cars by the tens of millions and turmoil was brewing in the oil-rich Middle East.

“The Israeli administration has to stop this despicableness, this barbarity; what would it say if this kind of attack had been launched against synagogues? The Masjid al-Aqsa is not only a shrine for Palestinians, but is the shrine of all Muslims,” Erdo?an was quoted as saying on Nov. 7 during an official visit to the Turkmen capital, Ashgabat.

“This action, this attempt launched against the Masjid al-Aqsa can never be forgiven. Attacking the Masjid al-Aqsa is like attacking the Kabaa,” Erdo?an added.

Once NATO has expanded its borders all the way to reach Russia, its mission has very much changed since it was initially established, Chomsky said. Now, its aim is to take control of global energy systems rather than maintaining intergovernmental military balance.

The world has never been closer to a nuclear war that could wipe out all of its initiators, and the threat is no longer a thing of history, according to Chomsky.

American Weapons Provided to Syrian Rebels Fall into al-Qaeda’s Hands

The al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra (the Succor Front) not only took the territory of the moderate Muslim Syria Revolutionaries Front this weekend, it also polished off the Movement of the Resolute .

The Movement of the Resolute (Harakat al-Hazm) represented itself as secular, but had its roots in a fundamentalist group backed by the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, the “Time of Muhammad” Front.

Last spring the Movement of the Resolute revealed that it had American TOW anti-tank batteries and access to other weapons. The TOWs were apparently supplied to them via Qatar or Turkey with American acquiescence.

Syrian al-Qaeda has swept into rural Idlib Province, taking over the checkpoints of the Free Syrian Army miderates.

No Asia trade pact expected on Obama's trip to region

The White House downplayed any expectations on Thursday (Nov 6) of progress on a much-awaited Pan-Pacific trade deal during President Barack Obama's upcoming trip to Asia.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which would encompass 40 per cent of the global economy and include 12 nations, has been the subject of protracted negotiations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One major brick wall is the TPP demand to prohibit all labeling of GMO products. Many Asian nations already have mandatory labeling of such products such as Japan and would view having to reverse their policy as a sign of weakness towards the United States.

FLASHBACK 2012 - New York: Terrorist Attempt to Blow up Federal Reserve Building Thwarted

But national Islamist groups routinely condemn such arrests as entrapment and accuse law enforcement of concocting sensational arrests for publicity’s sake. If the allegations in Nafis’ criminal complaint are proven, he represents a radical Muslim resolute in his desire to kill innocent people.

The initial reaction from some was skeptical.

“Did the FBI just foil another FBI plot? Or was this legit?” writes Zahra Billoo, a CAIR official.
...
Nafis exhibited a “single-minded determination to carry out his plan,” U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch said in a statement. He “thought he was striking a blow to the American economy. He thought he was directing confederates and fellow believers. At every turn, he was wrong, and his extensive efforts to strike at the heart of the nation’s financial system were foiled by effective law enforcement. We will use all of the tools at our disposal to stop any such attack before it can occur.”

FLASHBACK 2013 - The Israeli Criminals Behind the NSA Spy Scandal

Jacob "Kobi" Alexander The founder and former chairman of Verint is wanted by the FBI for a long list of crimes. He is veteran Israeli intelligence officer.
Jacob "Kobi" Alexander, the former head of Comverse, the parent company of Verint, is a wanted criminal who has fled U.S. justice to Africa and probably subsequently to Israel. It is important to note that Kobi Alexander and Comverse were closely connected to Odigo, the Israeli messaging system that was used to warn Israelis to stay away from the World Trade Center on 9-11.
Furthermore, the NSA has used Israeli encryption software from RSA Security, Inc. since 2006, which means that Israelis hold the encryption keys to the entire NSA computer network. The Israelis obviously have easy access to everything at the NSA.

So, the guy our incoming Attorney General helped avoid jail for stock options fraud is also an Israeli spy!

Pepsi and FedEx among Hundreds of Companies Using Luxembourg to Avoid Taxes

The tiny European country of Luxembourg has become a tax haven for hundreds of international corporations seeking ways to reduce their tax obligations by billions of dollars.

This discovery, made by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) from thousands of pages of leaked documents, involves at least 340 companies, including PepsiCo and FedEx.

While having little or no presence in Luxembourg, corporations have enjoyed huge tax breaks through various accounting schemes and legal maneuvers. “In some instances … companies have enjoyed effective tax rates of less than 1 percent on the profits they’ve shuffled into Luxembourg,” ICIJ reported.

FedEx established two Luxembourg affiliates so it could move money made in Mexico, France and Brazil to Hong Kong. The plan resulted in the shipping giant paying only one quarter of 1% on the earnings involved.

If America is going to reveal the truth about torture, Obama must end Gitmo’s cover-up court

At last, the report on Bush-era secrets is coming – and it’s the perfect chance for Obama to finally keep his promise about justice at Guantánamo Bay

When President Bush created the military commissions, their purpose was to ensure the conviction of detainees on the basis of evidence obtained through torture. The due process enshrined in our constitution was essentially replaced by a kangaroo court: the military obstructed defendants’ access to counsel; it restricted their ability to see the evidence against them; and prosecutors were allowed to introduce hearsay evidence as well as statements obtained through coercion and torture.

UK to pay £1.7bn EU bill in full despite Osborne’s claim to have halved it

Chancellor says bill was cut to £850m but Treasury aides admit Britain is also returning its automatic rebate, making up the rest

The government has accepted a £1.7bn top-up bill to the EU budget despite repeatedly denouncing its size as unacceptable.

George Osborne, the chancellor, has won a respite, however – avoiding a 1 December deadline and deferring the payment interest-free until next September, well after the general election.

Britain’s automatic rebate on its contributions to the EU budget was expected to knock €1bn off the demand for €2.1bn, leading the chancellor to brag that he had halved the payment.

Rouble crashes as Russian economy teeters on brink of recession

Currency instability is reviving memories among Russians who suffered after the country’s default in the 1990s

Russia’s economic difficulties intensified on Friday as the beleaguered rouble crashed during morning trading, stoking fears that the country was on the verge of a full-blown currency crisis reminiscent of the 1990s.

The rouble has fallen steadily in recent months amid rising tensions with the west, but it took a dramatic downward lurch earlier this week, plunging more than 10% in 48 hours.

The instability of currency is reviving uncomfortable memories among Russian people, many of whom suffered after the country’s default in 1998 when savings were wiped out and queues formed at exchange points as the rouble was dramatically devalued amid spiralling inflation.

Vladimir Putin: oil price decline has been engineered by political forces

Recent tumbles in the value of oil on global markets have been the creation of politicians, Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, suggested on Thursday.

The Russian state has been heavily exposed to slumping oil values, widely viewed to be the result of a supply glut.

“The obvious reason for the decline in global oil prices is the slowdown in the rate of [global] economic growth which means consumption is being reduced in a whole range of countries”, Mr Putin said.

In addition to this, “a political component is always present in oil prices. Furthermore, at some moments of crisis it starts to feel like it is the politics that prevails in the pricing of energy resources”, he added.

Mr Putin also referred to a "distinct direct link" between physical oil markets and "the financial platforms where the trade is conducted", in explaining part of oil price changes.

Jacob "Kobi" Alexander, the fugitive former chief executive of Comverse Technology Inc,

The settlement also resolves a civil lawsuit by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. It was announced by U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch in the Eastern District of New York.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Going against Netanyahu, 84 percent of US Jews favor Iran nuclear deal

As President Obama presses to reach an accord with Iran on its nuclear program by the end of the month, he can count on strong support from what might seem like an unlikely segment of the population: American Jews.

Jewish backing of the administration’s efforts to strike a deal suggests that American Jews aren’t heeding the alarms being sounded in Israel by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He warns that any deal that leaves Iran with an enrichment program constitutes a mortal danger to Israel.

Priest bolting from parish raises questions

A New Mexico priest has bolted from his parish. Now people have questions: Where did he go, and did he take some of the church’s money with him?

When Father Ravi Kiran transferred from a Catholic Diocese in India to the Gallup Diocese in 2009, he started making changes to Saint Anthony Zuni Mission and School.

Parishoners said he upgraded the parsonage, school and convent, which were all in desperate need of repair.

“Father Ravi was a wonderful priest,” said parishoner Joseph Sweeney. “He increased church attendance. He’s improved the campus tremendously.”

Sources tell KRQE News 13 the way he spent money divided the congregation and some left altogether.

A few weeks ago, to the shock of the congregation and the Diocese, Kiran left and went back to India. A spokesperson for the Diocese says he did not give them notification.

President Flim-Flam Leads Dems to Midterm Massacre

Tuesday’s electoral meltdown was just blowback from the many rank and file Dems who were either too mad to vote the party ticket or too distraught to even drag themselves to the polling booths. And therein lies the silver lining to this mess, which is that people are disillusioned, frightened and angry. They hate Wall Street, the media, the do-nothing Congress, and the sell-out-loser Democrats. They want change and they’re willing to move further to the right or left to get it.

That should be fertile ground for even the most fainthearted revolutionary. There’s no reason why the public’s frustration and can’t be channeled into more productive activity, like a general strike, a mass exodus from the two-party duopoly, or a thundering march on the Capital.

Why waste all that rage on whining and handwringing? The system is broken. Deal with it.

Evidence Is Now Conclusive: Two Ukrainian Government Fighter-Jets Shot Down Malaysian Airlines MH17. It was Not a ‘Buk’ Surface to Air Missile

The reader-comments to my July 31st article, “First Examination of Malaysian MH-17 Cockpit Photo Shows Ukraine Government Shot that Plane Down,” provided links and leads to independent additional confirmatory evidence backing up that account, of retired Lufthansa pilot Peter Haisenko’s reconstruction of this event, to such an extent that, after exploring the matter further, I now feel confident enough to say that the evidence on this matter is, indeed, “conclusive,” that Haisenko is right.

Here is all of that evidence, which collectively convinces me that Haisenko’s conclusion there, is, indeed, the only one that can even possibly explain this wreckage:

“There have been two or three pieces of fuselage that have been really pockmarked with what almost looks like machine-gun fire, very very strong machine-gun fire.”

This remarkable statement comes not from Haisenko, but from one of the first OSCE investigators who arrived at the scene of the disaster.

Hezbollah pre-empts Israeli action in south, West Bekaa

According to German intelligence security reports, Israel has recruited agents in Shebaa and Arqoub. A source familiar with the matter told The Daily Star that these agents are thought to be cooperating with terrorist cells related to takfiri organizations in the two Palestinian camps of Shatila and Burj al-Barajneh in Beirut.

The cells are composed of hundreds of militants who sneaked into Lebanon among Palestinian refugees from the Damascus camp of Yarmouk and are waiting to be given the green light to attack Hezbollah posts and institutions in Beirut’s southern suburbs.

Attacks had been planned in Tripoli and Arsal, and there was even the possibility that Beirut might be attacked, according to the source. But the Lebanese Army succeeded in thwarting these plots, and remains completely ready to confront any extremists in whichever region.

When installing its puppets/trained agents as the "government" in Kiev, overthrowing the government democratically elected by the people, the west declared that this entity was a paragon of democratic values and new-found dignity. But since that time, the fascist junta has been anything but democratic, let alone displaying any semblance of dignity.

The $9 Billion Witness: Meet JPMorgan Chase's Worst Nightmare

Fleischmann is the central witness in one of the biggest cases of white-collar crime in American history, possessing secrets that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon late last year paid $9 billion (not $13 billion as regularly reported – more on that later) to keep the public from hearing.

Back in 2006, as a deal manager at the gigantic bank, Fleischmann first witnessed, then tried to stop, what she describes as "massive criminal securities fraud" in the bank's mortgage operations.

Six years after the crisis that cratered the global economy, it's not exactly news that the country's biggest banks stole on a grand scale. That's why the more important part of Fleischmann's story is in the pains Chase and the Justice Department took to silence her.

Ebola cases rise sharply in Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone is reporting an alarming increase in the number of new Ebola cases, with 435 confirmed in the past week.

About 24% of the Ebola cases in Sierra Leone have been reported in the past three weeks, although the outbreak began in March, according to the World Health Organization.

Those stark figures contrast with the hopeful news last week from Liberia, where the number of new cases has been falling. Officials at the WHO have said the drop in Liberia could be partly due to an increase in safe burials.

Ebola transmission in Guinea, where the outbreak started, "remains intense," according to the WHO.

Health officials from the WHO have cautioned, however, that the Ebola virus is unpredictable. Cases may appear to fall or level off only to come raging back a short time later.

In the past decade, the birth rate among Ethiopian-Israelis has declined by at least 20 percent. Advocacy groups now claim this decline is the result of a birth control regimen forced upon Ethiopian immigrant women.

Pentagon Aims to Copy Israel Tactics on Civilian Deaths in War

Not 48 hours after Amnesty International issued a report blasting Israel for its “callous indifference” to civilian deaths in the Gaza War, the Pentagon is openly talking about using the conflict as a model for their own wars.

The Nuclear Threat from Israeli Submarines (The Samson Option)

Now here is something we had not thought about and we should have because its far more likely to occur than any other attack against us, given our history of that occurring against us with that nation except for a false flag, but then isn't Israel usually involved in all of those so far, along with our treasonous leaders????

The third intifada is here

Periodic situation evaluations of the Israel Defense Forces’ (IDF) highest command echelons warned that the harsh economic situation, lack of a diplomatic horizon and overall feeling of frustration and that there is no way out are likely to be the catalysts. Shin Bet assessments disseminated in 2013 even showed worrisome data regarding growing unrest in the West Bank, and painted the picture of the lone terrorist going out on his own to carry out an attack without the backing of organizational infrastructure. These assessments even led to closer security cooperation between Israel and the Palestinian Authority with the goal of detecting and thwarting the first signs of terrorist organization if and when they appear on the ground.

But apparently the Israeli security system didn't imagine that the third intifada it had anticipated, warned against and prepared for would erupt specifically in Jerusalem, and with such intensity.

Spanish Copyright Amendments Will Shakedown News Sites and Censor the Web

When technological change disrupts industries, they can respond in one of two ways. First, they can adapt to this change by delivering innovative new products, even if this means cannibalizing their older products. This shift of the mapping industry from producing printed street maps to providing data for GPS devices is a good example. This is not to say that individual companies necessarily survived the shift, but the industry as a whole—and consumers—are better off for having moved on from established business models to embrace new technological possibilities.

A second way that industries can respond to technological change is by suing those whom they see as responsible for disrupting their old business models, or by lobbying for new protectionist laws to prop them up in a quixotic attempt to hold back the technological tide...

BEX ALERT - Robert O'Neill, retired Navy SEAL, says he shot Osama bin Laden

Robert O'Neill, the retired Navy SEAL who says he shot al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in the forehead publicly identified himself Thursday amid a debate among special operations brethren about whether they should break silence about their secret missions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

He may have shot someone, but it wasn't Osama bin Laden, who died of natural causes in December 2001. Or didn't you wonder why they dumped the body in the ocean before anyone could confirm the ID, then flooded the net with faked photos?

Israel’s Attack on USS LIBERTY airs on Al Jazeera America

Al Jazeera America is broadcasting a new Documentary on the USS Liberty, “The Day Israel Attacked America,” produced by British filmmaker Richard Belfield who wrote: LIBERTY

I was first told about the attack on the USS Liberty in 1980 over dinner with a former analyst from the National Security Agency (NSA) in Washington DC…

The [LIBERTY] veterans were extraordinary. One after another, they were generous with their time, uniformly eloquent and passionate and above all, honest in their recollections.

They all felt betrayed by the American government but were keen to exonerate ordinary Jewish people both in Israel and without, for any responsibility for the incident.

Their beef was simply with the senior Israeli officers in the control room and their superiors higher up the command chain who had ordered the attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP

Claire and I watched (and recorded) this program the other night. It is well worth seeing and sharing (link below). Constrained by the hour time frame, the program does not go into every detail but focuses primarily on the attack and how Israel literally bribed and blackmailed the US Government to go along with the official story of "accident." Left out of the story is Israel's attempt to frame Egypt for the attack, and the ordering by President Johnson to recall a rescue mission. But it is still a documentary worth watching to see the faces and hear the words of the men who were really there, rather than the sanitized official version that followed.

Perhaps the most shameful event in the entire story was the awarding of the Congressional Medal of Honor to Captain William L. McGonagle in a secret ceremony at the Navy Yard; the only time in history the Congressional Medal of Honor was not awarded personally by the President at the White House. Johnson was just four miles away at the time.

The Dying Israeli-Palestinian ‘Peace Process’

An intractable process, one that never seems to resolve itself, is either no process at all or a fraudulent one contrived to hide an ulterior motive. The so-called Israeli-Palestinian (at one time the Israeli-Arab) “peace process,” now in its sixth decade (counting from 1948) or fourth decade (counting from 1967), is and probably always has been just such a fraud.

The Day Israel Attacked America

In 1967, at the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, the Israeli Air Force launched an unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty, a US Navy spy ship that was monitoring the conflict from the safety of international waters in the Mediterranean.

Israeli jet fighters hit the vessel with rockets, cannon fire and napalm, before three Israeli torpedo boats moved in to launch a second more devastating attack. Though she did not sink, the Liberty was badly damaged. Thirty-four US servicemen and civilian analysts were killed, another 171 were wounded.

Later Israel apologised for what it claimed to be a tragic case of mistaken identity. It said that it had believed the ship to be hostile Egyptian naval vessel. US President Lyndon Johnson was privately furious but publicly the White House chose not to challenge the word of its closest Middle East ally and accepted that the attack had been a catastrophic accident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the official Al Jazeera page for their recent documentary "The Day Israel Attacked America." Sadly it does not include the video itself, which is being scrubbed from YouTube as fas as they go up.

But what is worth reading are the comments on this page by Israel's defenders, who as usual are screaming that this is all an anti-Semitic plot!However, yesterday, no less than the Jerusalem Post confirmed that the government of Israel KNEW they were attacking an American ship when they attacked the USS Liberty.

No doubt the commenters below will now start screaming that the Jerusalem Post is anti-Semitic!

Left unmentioned in the Al Jazeera documentary (but covered in earlier ones) was that this was a naval variation of the Lavon Affair in which Israel attacked an American asset while framing Egypt for it, and the US was preparing an air strike against Egypt when the USS Liberty finally got a radio message out identifying who their real attackers were, which is the moment when Israel quit trying to sink the ship.

What is significant about the Al Jazeera docuentary is how much attention it has attracted. As I mentioned above, there have been previous documentaries about the USS Liberty such as BBC's "Dead in the Water", which came and went with little notice. That the current documentary has gained so much traction underscores that people are more willing to take an objective look at Israel's behavior these days, undeterred by screams of "anti-Semite" and "Jew Hater", accompanied by endless wagging of Hitler and the Nazis.

‘Toxic brand’: Britons say religion does more bad than good, atheists ‘more moral’ than believers

Nearly two-thirds of British people stated that religion causes more harm than it brings benefits, according to a new poll, which shows Muslim beliefs at odds with those of the rest of society.

The poll of 2,004 people conducted by Survation exclusively for Huffington Post UK revealed that nearly two in five Britons have no religious allegiance, with just 56 percent describing themselves as Christians.

The figures for active worship are even more stark, with 60 percent of the population surveyed claiming they are “not religious at all” with only 8 percent saying they are “very religious.”

MEGA PUKE-FACTOR 9 BEX TSUNAMI ALERT - How Hillary Clinton won the 2014 midterms

But here’s the thing: In politics, the easy answer isn’t always the only answer, and the winner of an election isn’t always the one who benefits most. Take a closer look at demography, geography and the road ahead for the parties, and it’s clear that the long-term winner of the 2014 midterms wasn’t the GOP at all. The long-term winner, in fact, wasn’t even on the ballot this year.

Her name is Hillary Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Talk about desperation on the cusp of madness! Hillary's spin-doctors are already out in force trying to delink the drubbing the Democrats got this week from Her Hillaryness. But the hard reality is that both Hillary and Bill Clinton did a lot of stumping around the nation trying to use their "star power" to lure Democratic voters, and it plainly did not work. And if Hillary could not attract voters in 2014, few will think she can in 2016. Yes, by 2016 the voters will be angry with the now GOP Congress, but Obama is still the Democratic President and shows no signs of altering the behavior which cost the Democrats Congress. Obama is one albatross around Hillary's neck she will not easily be rid of, especially of the GOP Congress decides to impeach Obama for his many high crimes and misdemeanors.

Yes You Should Vote! . . . Maybe

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

On November 5th, upon waking to discover the results of the 2014 elections, Conservatives and Republicans gloated in rapturous revelry, Democrats and Liberals pined and lost their cool on social media, and the vast majority of Americans didn’t really care one way or the other. In fact, one would hazard a guess that many Americans had absolutely no clue as to what actually happened on November 4th.

Despite the reactions of American voters – either elated or dejected after the election results came in – the truth is that the results don’t actually matter in terms of how the country will be run. My proof for this claim? Democrats and Republicans were elected. That should be proof enough...

U.S. stocks edge lower after payrolls data

The U.S. stock market opened marginally lower on Friday as investors digested the latest employment data, showing 214,000 new jobs were added last month. The headline number was softer than expected, however, upward revisions to the previous two months more than made up for it.
