This is the single most stunning poll number on Donald Trump I have seen

It's hard to overstate how remarkable it is that the number of Republicans who could see themselves backing a Trump nomination rose 42 — FORTY TWO — percentage points in 10 months. It's all the more remarkable when you consider that Trump was already totally known by the GOP electorate last spring, meaning that his gains since that time are almost entirely the result of him changing peoples' minds. And it's something else entirely when you consider how Trump got here — a mixture of bravado and anger sprinkled with a dose of controversial statements and seeming gaffes that would have felled lesser candidate many times over.

Trump's improvement on the "could you see yourself voting for him" question is amazing enough in a vacuum. When you compare his rise on the question to, say, how Jeb Bush has fared on it, you begin to appreciate the true remarkableness of what Trump has done.

US House votes to block clean water rule as Flint scandal grows

They spend Trillions protecting us from the 'terror' but they won't protect the water people drink, from the corporations.

"Representatives approved a resolution back by the Senate in November that blocks the Environmental Protection Agency’s "waters of the United States" (WOTUS) rule.
The regulation protects streams and wetlands used in local water supplies, but failed after a deluge of lobbying from corporations including Halliburton, Shelland Tyson foods."

The Fascists might be fugging the planet but its been a wonderful time for investors.

New “X-Files” Will Take On 9/11 Conspiracy, World Government And NSA Spying

By John Vibes

Government corruption was always one of the main themes that played out in the classic television show X-Files, and it was typically shown in the form of UFO and alien cover-ups. However, the show’s creator said in a recent interview that the new revival of the series will also touch on some of the more political conspiracies that take place in our world.

X-Files creator Chris Carter said Edward Snowden and issues like the 9/11 conspiracy will be fair game in the new revival of the show. The new series will feature the same classic characters, David Duchovny as Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully...

White House wants to ‘edit’ Daesh propaganda

Since our providers and tech makers in Silicon Valley are already deep in bed with the NSA to help spy on us, it should be little surprise that the White House now wants them to climb on board another Bill of Rights busting train and help “disrupt” ISIS online by editing the Internet.

Carly Fiorina Is Scary, but Her Hillary Clinton Diss at the Undercard GOP Debate Was Hilarious

I know. Fiorina is scary and she’s basically there as a female stand-in to balance the fact that everyone knows Hillary Clinton could cannibalize a baby on the White House lawn and still get the Dem nomination.

Still, her Hillary diss at the Undercard GOP debate was pretty hilarious...

FBI Posing As Militia: Burns, Oregon

The FBI have reportedly been following citizens around the town in vehicles, but not apparently in any official capacity. They’re posing as militia. Nevada State Legislator Michele Fiore reported that she had a conversation less than an hour ago with Fire Marshall Chris Briels. He said at 12:26pm Pacific Time on 13 January, that the Sheriff’s Office and Judge Grasty announced to the community that the ‘militia’ has been following people and harassing citizens throughout the town. When he saw what he thought was militia “Poking around the armory” and following people he took it upon himself to pull them over. He reported to Fiore that the men posing as militia actually turned out to be FBI.

Dem Panic: Hillary’s Catastrophic Collapse In One Chart

The Democrat National Committee has done everything it can to make Hillary Clinton president. The DC Media has done everything it can to make Hillary Clinton president. But in this glorious country of ours, We The People still matter, and due to that inconvenient truth, Democrats are now panicking as they watch a repeat of 2008. Only this time, Hillary isn’t losing to a charismatic black celebrity. This time she is losing to a 74 year-old white socialist.

In fact, nationally and in New Hampshire, things are actually worse for Hillary than they were in 2008:

Sunny Nevada Just Killed the Solar Industry with 40% Tax Hike, Derailing the Off-Grid Movement

By Justin Gardner

While Nevadans were celebrating the holidays under solar-powered lights, the Nevada Public Utilities Commission (PUC) voted unanimously to increase a monthly fee on solar customers by 40% while reducing the amount they get paid for excess power sold to the grid. Adding insult to injury, they made the rate changes retroactive, sabotaging consumer investments in solar energy...

Veteran’s Children Taken & Held Hostage by Govt Agents for Legally Treating his PTSD with Cannabis

By William N. Grigg

Disabled Navy veteran Raymond Schwab moved to Colorado last year to free himself from addictions that grew out of the pharmaceuticals prescribed by the VA to treat his service-related physical and psychological injuries.

As Veterans for Medical Cannabis Access points out, medical cannabis is an effective treatment for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), where other drugs fail. Veterans are successfully treating themselves despite the federal government’s prohibition.

Because Schwab is legally using medicinal cannabis in Colorado, officials in prohibitionist Kansas have abducted five of his children, ranging from 5 to 16 years of age...

Ted Cruz is not eligible to be President of the United States; The meaning of "Natural Born."

Ted Cruz is ineligible to run for President of the United States. He was born in Canada, of parents who were Canadian citizens at the time of his birth. Cruz's mother claims to have been born in Delaware. The State of Delaware claims not to have any records of her. (The authenticity of the Birth Certificate provided by the Cruz campaign is now in dispute.) But even if genuine, it makes Cruz a US citizen, but not "Natural Born."

Ted Cruz's supporters try to get around "Natural Born" by claiming it simply means any US citizen, an opinion even echoed at Wikipedia!

But if any US citizen could be President, then the qualifier "Natural Born" would not be needed (and is not present in the Constitutional citizenship requirements for Representatives and Senators). Clearly, to the Founding Fathers, "Natural Born" had a specific and obvious meaning, applied exclusively to the Presidency!

More VERY Bad News For Statins

I’ve written several posts with a variation on the title Bad News For Statins. Those have mostly pointed out the nasty side effects of statins. Doctors who push statins usually dismiss those side effects as a small price to avoid a heart attack – which they insist statins help us do.

But what if statins actually harm our hearts instead of protecting them? That’s what new research says they do.

FLASHBACK - The Financial Con Of The Decade Explained So Simply Even A Congressman Will Get It

Sometimes, when chasing the bouncing ball of fraud and corruption on a daily basis, it is easy to lose sight of the forest for the millions of trees (all of which have a 150% LTV fourth-lien on them, underwritten by Goldman Sachs, which is short the shrubbery tranche). Luckily, Charles Hugh Smith, of oftwominds.com has taken the time to put it all into such simple and compelling terms, even corrupt North Carolina congressmen will not have the chance to plead stupidity after reading this.

Of course, to those familiar with the work of Austrian economists, none of this will come as a surprise.

Violence Against Anti-Zionist Protesters At Presidential Campaign Rallies Needs To Be Preempted

The neocons seem very happy that the heckler who shouted "Marco Rubio is owned by Jews!" was violently attacked. The guy behind the heckler, who looked literally like Brutus from the Popeye cartoons, immediately attacked the heckler and pulled him to the ground, to cheers from the crowd and laughs from Rubio himself. It's outrageous how quickly these thugs resort to violence, it's very disgusting. When I shouted at Donald Trump about the Israelis arrested on 9/11, I wasn't attacked at all, despite being surrounded by 9,000 Trump fans whom Trump himself called 'maniacs' at that very rally. I will explain why. I took several preemptive measures. Common sense warns us to take action in order to prevent an anticipated event from happening.

Jakarta Blasts: ISIS Inc Strikes Again

By Tony Cartalucci

We are to believe that the “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria” (ISIS) – named so because it allegedly exists and primarily operates in Iraq and Syria – is fighting the Syrian government, nonexistent moderates the US claims it is arming and funding to the tune of several billions of dollars a year since 2011, the Iraqi government, the Kurds, Russia, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, and Iran. And also, allegedly, ISIS is fighting the combined military power of the United States, France, England, Germany, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Qatar.

Yet we are expected to believe that ISIS has the time, energy, resources, and inclination to attack Indonesia in a spectacular, large-scale bombing and mass shooting?...

Meet The Only Republican Who Voted Against Audit The Fed Bill: U.S. Senator Bob Corker

63-year-old Robert Phillips "Bob" Corker, Jr. from Tennessee is the only Republican Senator who actually voted against the Audit the Fed bill. Despite posing as a 'fiscal conservative,' Corker's record speaks for itself and proves the opposite. He is in favor of a carbon tax. He opposes tax cuts, he opposed a measure to get rid of the 18-cents-per-gallon federal gasoline tax. He heartily endorsed the 2008 Wall Street bailout and supports taxing people for online purchases. He wants to provide over a BILLION dollars, from the tax slaves, in Homeland Security grants to states! Corker is also a rabid Zionist who strongly supports sanctions on Iran He also opposes trials for those suspected of terrorism. On his official Senate website, Corker drones on about Washington's "mounting debt" but never addresses the head of the snake, the federal reserve, and the fact that we borrow money at interest from a private central bank. Bob Corker is an absolute fraud and a criminal.

According to McCain, “sovereign immune naval vessels are exempt from detention, boarding, or search. Their crews are not subject to detention or arrest.” Imagine the tune McCain would have been singing if a well-armed Iranian naval vessel had been spotted in US territorial waters off the coast of New York. Would he have so rigorously condemned any US interference in the actions of Iran’s sovereign naval vessels?

A “Homeland” Is a Country That Allows Domestic Use of Military

Have you seen Dahr Jamail’s report on U.S. military plans for war games in Washington state? I’m sure some observers imagine that the military is simply looking for a place to engage in safe and responsible and needed practice in hand-to-hand combat against incoming North Korean nuclear missiles, or perhaps to rehearse a humanitarian invasion of Russia to uphold the fundamental international law against Vladimir Putin’s existence.

But if you look over the history of domestic use of the U.S. military — such as by reading the new book Soldiers on the Home Front: The Domestic Role of the American Military — it’s hard not to wonder whether, from the U.S. military’s point of view, at least a side benefit of the coming war game isn’t rehearsing for the next time citizens in kayaks interfere with a corporation intent on poisoning the earth’s climate with fossil fuels.

"Ready for Hillary... to Take Your Guns": Brady Campaign Backs Clinton as Gun Control Advocates Throw Themselves at Her for President

It would appear a large segment of the liberal Dem population is definitely "Ready for Hillary"... to take away your guns, America.

After focusing her campaign around the idea that the U.S. desperately needs more gun control in recent months leading up to and following Obama's executive action announcement, famous pro-gun controllers with deep pockets are throwing money at Hillary to be the next commander-in-chief.

Major anti-gun endorsements are pouring in. Just a few days ago, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence announced it is backing Hillary. So are well-known gun control advocates Mark Kelly and his wife, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords.

Hillary has already said that she'll sign more gun control executive orders if she becomes president...

Canadians Are Panicking Over Food Costs After Currency Collapse

It’s no secret that America has a serious inflation problem.

However, this has been a gradual shift. Canada on the other hand, has just seen the price of every day goods rise precipitously over a very short period of time.

The bishops added that the Israeli 'confiscation of land' in Gaza is "in violation of international law" and assured the Palestinian people that "you are not forgotten - Throughout 2016 we shall raise your plight nationally and internationally." They continued "The 2014 war led to the destruction of thousands of homes and the physical and social infrastructure of Gaza... To those Israelis and Palestinians who seek peace, you are not forgotten... Political leaders across the world must put greater energy into a diplomatic solution to end nearly 50 years of occupation and resolve the ongoing conflict so the two peoples and three faiths can live together in justice and peace."

This is something that the president and the White House has steadfastly denied, but there’s now what I would call an overwhelming body of evidence that leads us to believe that somebody stopped a number of teams and potential rescuers from entering Libya or going to Benghazi to help while those attacks were underway. They could have gotten there. According to experts and people that have information we spoke to, they could have gotten there before the last two Americans died. Those attacks went on for eight hours.”

Liberals shouldn’t kid themselves that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is very different from the Republican frontrunners on this score. Conservatives should stop pretending too, so they can get on with digging into areas where true policy differences between the Democrats and Republicans might actually mean something.

While the two seem to be a great match, as they both fail to consider the morality and consequence of their actions, it seems that Monsanto is only involved with Blackwater in infiltrating activist groups who are opposed to the biotech giant — an operation quite sinister enough. The truth of the matter is that Academi (Blackwater) was purchased by private investors, and the heavily sourced article written by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation actually says nothing about Monsanto buying Blackwater.

Okay, we are headed into a little Ice age, the global economy and petroleum supply chain is hovering at the edge of collapse, so let's tell people they cannot burn wood for heat, even though that worked for the human race for the last half million years.

Use a Lot of Condoms? You Might Be Reported to DHS

One of the most startling developments in the War on Terror, was when the Department of Homeland Security started classifying previously benign behaviors and beliefs as signs of terrorism. Are you a conservative or a libertarian? Terrorist. Are you an evangelical Christian? Terrorist. Have you ever taken pictures of monuments or infrastructure? Super terrorist.

Now the DHS is starting to apply that same logic to other crimes, like sex trafficking. They’re going to start teaching hotel staff how to spot the tell-tale signs of sex trafficking, which include “seeing too many condoms in garbage cans,” “frequent use of ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign,” and if “the minibar needs to be frequently restocked.” So I guess if you’re on your honeymoon, you might be suspected of sex trafficking.

How Congress Is About to Make It Easier for Chemical Companies to Poison Us

By Claire Bernish

In the United States, we have become so inured to ironically-titled legislation, the majority of us simply assume legislators find dystopic, tongue-in-cheek humor in toying with our hopes — think: USA Freedom Act, the sole freedom of which lies in the government’s green light to spy on the populace however it chooses. Similarly, a set of bills purporting to reform the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act makes no exception to that practice, as the Senate’s version, The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, bears the name of the late New Jersey senator who espoused strong environmental policy.

But these bills do anything but protect the environment or the people; in fact, states would have a far more difficult time regulating dangerous chemicals on their own, and would be prohibited entirely from doing so while waiting for often snail-paced evaluation by the EPA...

Cruz May Amend Disclosures to Show '12 Goldman Campaign Loan

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz said he'll amend finance reports from his successful 2012 Texas Senate bid, if necessary, to show he received loans used to cover campaign costs.

Cruz made the comments Wednesday after a New York Times report said he and his wife, Heidi, obtained low-interest loans from Goldman Sachs and Citigroup in the first half of 2012. The funds totaled as much as $750,000 and increased to a maximum of $1 million, according to the Times, which cited personal financial disclosures that didn't give an explanation for their purpose.

The loans weren't disclosed in campaign finance reports at the time, the newspaper reported. Candidates are required to file paperwork showing loans used to pay for their campaigns. Heidi Cruz is on leave from her job as a managing director at Goldman Sachs.

"Heidi and I, when we ran for Senate,>>>

See The Names Of The Senators Who Voted Against The Audit Of The Federal Reserve

By John Vibes

This Thursday, the Senate voted to reject Rand Paul’s proposal to audit the Federal Reserve. The bill needed 60 votes to pass but was rejected by a narrow margin of 53-44.

“We’ve had a lot of Democrats who claim that they’re concerned about big banks and big banks controlling things and a revolving door between Wall Street and big banks and the Federal Reserve. We’ll see if any of those loud voices — Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren — are they loud voices that really are for more oversight of the banking system?” Paul said.

Sanders was actually one of the senators who voted for the bill, while Warren was one of the senators who voted against it...
