Pat Buchanan: The Future of the Republican Party Belongs to the Trump Supporters

Pat Buchanan went on Hannity to discuss the state of the Republican primary race. As of today Donald Trump has the only path to win the nomination. Cruz and Kasich are just playing spoilers. Buchanan says the future of the Republican Party belongs to the Trump supporters.

Barry’s Illegal Immigration Scheme Is Illegal

All presidents from time to time have exercised a discretion upon individuals when it comes to enforcing laws that pose hardships. But none has done so for 4 million people, and none has written substitute laws of his own making. Until now.

QUEEN ELIZABETH TURNS 90, WITH $29 BILLION TO HER NAME

The U.K.’s Queen Elizabeth will ring in her 90th birthday on Thursday, and the monarch has every reason to celebrate. Not only has she already beaten the average U.K. life expectancy by nine years, she’s also among the top 25 richest people in the world. Just accounting for the tangible assets of the U.K. monarchy, the Queen sits on about £20 billion, or $28.8 billion, according to strategy consultancy Brand Finance. That is enough to put her 25th among the world’s richest on the Bloomberg Billionaire list, and ahead of high rollers such as investment guru George Soros, Microsoft MSFT, -0.55% CEO Steve Ballmer and Michael Dell.

BazantMisconduct.com

This website attempts to provide sufficient information to encourage a campus wide discussion at Northwestern University as to whether Professor Zdenek Bazant’s published work on the fall of the WTC towers on 9/11/01 should be a cause for university wide concern.

Professor Bazant has played an important role in the national conversation about the fall of the World Trade Center towers in New York on 9/11.

His first paper on this matter, written with one of his graduate students, was submitted to peer review TWO DAYS after 9/11. While this does not show that he began the paper before 9/11/01, that possibility should be considered.

What Is Shadow Lobbying? How Influence Peddlers Shape Policy In The Dark

Earlier this year, we asked you to help us find out which Democratic superdelegates are also lobbyists. We didn’t want to limit it to just registered lobbyists, because there’s an increasing number of people in Washington who do what most of us would think of as lobbying activity, but avoid registering — known as “shadow lobbyists.” But that left us, and our readers, with some questions: What exactly is a shadow lobbyist? How do they avoid registering? How did we get here?

Trump Spent $0.13 Per Vote in New York… Bernie Spent Most on NY Ads, Trump Spent Least

Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Donald Trump all have strong ties to New York, and they all approached their campaigns in the state very differently. A report from the Center for Public Integrity shows that, in dollars spent on radio and TV ads, Bernie Sanders spent about $9.03 per vote in New York. Hillary Clinton spent $3.62, and Trump only spent $0.13 per vote.

Mississippi GOP Threatens Trump, Cruz Supporters

LifeZette has obtained evidence that supporters of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in Mississippi have been threatened with possible arrest should they refuse to elect pro-Establishment delegates to the state’s GOP convention on April 23.

Instead it seems that Bryant and Nosef are working to ensure they have pro-Kasich or “White Knight” delegates prepared for a second or third ballot in Cleveland. Indeed, Bryant only endorsed Cruz in March, which suggests his endorsement was motivated more by anti-Trump feeling than support for Cruz’s brand of constitutional conservatism.

UK Unions Agree To Implement Pay Cuts For NHS Workers

The British government is enforcing a miserly 1 percent increase in pay on over a million public sector workers, including National Health Service (NHS) employees. Prison staff are receiving just 1.3 percent from this month.

A Conservative government Treasury statement read: “The public sector pay bill makes up over half of departmental resource spending, so continued pay restraint remains central to the government’s deficit reduction strategy.”

Why Don’t The Candidates Talk About Afghanistan?

Heading into its sixteenth year, with no endpoint in sight, America’s longest war is its least talked about.

Afghanistan has not come up in any Republican or Democratic debate, except perhaps as one of a list of countries where Islamic State must be destroyed (left out is the reality that no Islamic State existed in 2001 when the U.S. invaded Afghanistan to defeat the Taliban, who, by the way, are still not defeated.)

Ted Cruz’s path is CLOSED

The path for Cruz to 1,237 delegates before the July convention in Cleveland is now officially closed: 674 delegates remain in the states ahead, and Cruz is 678 short of the magic number, according to an Associated Press tally. Worse, his double-digit victory in Wisconsin on April 5 has failed to produce a perceivable polling bounce in key upcoming states.

Surprise! Author of viral ‘Becoming Anti-Bernie’ piece is corporate lawyer who defends hedge funds

You may have seen this “On Becoming Anti-Bernie” piece, which is going around the internets. It’s one of the top three most popular posts on Medium’s politics section, has 1.4k likes, and over 600 comments. But who is the author? Robin Alperstein? She’s a corporate lawyer who specializes in defending hedge funds but also represents the occasional nanny-abusing, jet-setting, Chilean aristocratic Upper East Side couple.

Lest you think I’m bringing up Alperstein’s biography because I can’t rebut the substance of her argument, I’ll go through a mere sampling of its flaws.

Mobs of Angry Investors Fight Market Rigging, Maul Deutsche Bank in Class-Action Lawsuit, other Banks Next

Prior to last week, Deutsche Bank made headlines for a string of huge losses and massive exposure to risky derivatives. The last time the firm’s shares traded at prices this low, the world was in the midst of 2008’s financial apocalypse.

Deutsche Bank didn’t need more bad news, but a group of investors who brought suit against the massive German bank for cheating them by rigging the London “fix” price for gold and silver certainly must be smiling. Last week, the bank offered to settle their class action suit for an undisclosed amount.

Flint water crisis defendants could lead to higher-ups

The first round of criminal charges against three men involved in the handling of the Flint water crisis will likely set the stage for a broader investigation that could reach higher, legal experts say.

"That's how you build these cases, you start from the lower levels and work your way up," said Peter Henning, a former federal prosecutor who now teaches law at Wayne State University. "The question is how much can the lower level help? Nobody is ever satisfied with getting the sort of mid-level bureaucrat."

Charged today were Mike Glasgow, Flint's laboratory and water quality supervisor; Mike Prysby, a Michigan Department of Environmental Quality official, and Stephen Busch, the suspended Lansing district coordinator of the Department of Environmental Quality's Office of Drinking Water and Municipal Assistance.

Dan Lipinski Illinois Superdelegate Says: He’d Back Sanders At Contested Convention

Rep. Dan Lipinski a superdelegate to the Democratic National Convention, said that if there is a contested convention, he will be for Bernie Sanders because he won his congressional district in the Illinois primary.

“As a Democratic member of Congress, I told Democrats in the 3rd District that I decided that I would pledge my vote to whichever candidate won the districit. Sen. Bernie Sanders received 54 percent and Secretary Hillary Clinton received 45 percent in my district. Therefore, if there is a contested vote at the Democratic National Convention in July, I will vote for Sen. Sanders.”

What’s interesting here is that Lipinski is one of the most conservative Democrats in Congress. He crosses the aisle to vote with Republicans more often than many of his Democratic colleagues.

This Law would Really Leave Us Defenseless : Will the Feds Criminalize Real Encryption?

You have to admit that the US government has a pretty dismal record when it comes to computer security. In just the last year, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) revealed that hackers had stolen the personal information of more than 20 million current and former federal government applicants and employees. The stolen data included more than six million fingerprints – considered the “gold standard” for proof of identity. If that wasn’t enough, the IRS acknowledged it also had suffered a massive data breach, with hackers stealing information of more than 300,000 taxpayers to claim more than $50 million in bogus refunds. And just a few months later, the IRS admitted that the system it used to identify taxpayers electronically had itself been hacked!

Nine Meals from Anarchy

In 1906, Alfred Henry Lewis stated, “There are only nine meals between mankind and anarchy.” Since then, his observation has been echoed by people as disparate as Robert Heinlein and Leon Trotsky.

The key here is that, unlike all other commodities, food is the one essential that cannot be postponed. If there were a shortage of, say, shoes, we could make do for months or even years. A shortage of gasoline would be worse, but we could survive it, through mass transport or even walking, if necessary.

Bombshell Reveal on GOP Plan For Kasich

Shepard Smith announced on his Fox News program Tuesday night that former New York Senator Alfonse D’Amato told him recently that the GOP will CHANGE THE RULES, in order to give John Kasich a shot at the nomination.

I saw Al D’Amato in the lobby today. Um, Senator Alfonse D’Amato. I saw him down there. And he said they will change the rules. He said, “Shepard, they will change the rules and it will give Kasich a shot.” Now he’s a Kasich supporter. And I told him, I said, “I’m going to quote you on this.” And he goes, “Go right ahead.” They are going to change the rules."

'I'm surprised she didn't say "watermelon"!': Black Democratic sheriff blasts Hillary's 'hot sauce' pandering to African-American voters as 'dehumanizing' and 'disgusting'

A prominent African-American law enforcement official says Hillary Clinton engaged in 'disgusting' and 'dehumanizing' pandering to black voters when she told a trio of Harlem radio hosts that she never goes anywhere without hot sauce in her purse.

'I'm surprised she didn't say "watermelon" – just go all the way,' Milwaukee County, Wisconsin's Democratic sheriff David Clarke jabbed Wednesday morning on the Fox News Channel's 'Fox & Friends' program.

'You know, this stuff is dehumanizing. It's embarrassing. It's disgusting,' he said.

'And if any other candidate were to say something like that, some stereotype about black people, it would derail their campaign. But the rules seem to be different for the Clintons.'

“This Will All Blow Up In The Fed’s Face,” Schiff Warns “Trump’s Right, America Is Broke”

“The trigger that’s going to really send us into a higher gear is going to be the admission by the Fed that the economy is weak or the markets figure it out on their own. There’s not a lot of stimulus left, all they’ve got is potentially negative rates and a huge round of quantitative easing, and this thing is going to blow up in the Fed’s face.”

3 officials charged in Flint water crisis

The Flint water crisis became a criminal case Wednesday when two state regulators and a city employee were charged with official misconduct, evidence-tampering and other offenses over the lead contamination that has alarmed parents and brought cries of racism.

‘‘This is a road back to restoring faith and confidence in all Michigan families in their government,’’ Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said in announcing the charges, months after officials conceded a series of bad decisions caused the disaster.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, the road back requires safe drinking water for all Americans.

Rights Versus Wishes

As human beings, we all have certain natural rights. Of the rights we possess, we have a right to delegate them to the government. For example, we all have a natural right to defend ourselves against predators. Because we possess that right, we can delegate it to the government. By contrast, I do not have a right to take one person’s earnings to give to another. Because I have no such right, I cannot delegate it to the government. If I did take your earnings to provide medical services for another, it would rightfully be described and condemned as an act of theft. When government does the same, it’s still theft, albeit legalized theft.

Important Information on the Pennsylvania Primary

Lyin’ Ted Cruz plans to steal Pennsylvania using one of his dirty tricks. It’s called a “loophole primary,” and its a nasty bit of business. This term might be familiar to you since Missouri and Illinois both incorporated the loophole concept into their primaries. Unfortunately, Pennsylvania is a bit different–and the difference matters.

So when Pennsylvanian voters head to the polls on the 26th, they won’t be given a simple standard ballot but a cumbersome list of delegate names.

Now, let’s say Cruz bought out three of the names on the roster here–the question is which three are Cruzbots and which three are Trump-friendly. Cruz is relying on low info voters to not know! So we need to be prepared.

‘Saudis Did 9/11’ is a Zionist Ruse

The Saudi rulers – as corrupt, autocratic and reprehensible as they are – are little more than slavish middle-mangers of the American-Zionist Empire, a far cry from the domineering Caesarian overlords that the deceptive mainstream media and some Zionist apologists in the alternative media want to make them out to be. Middle-managers cannot organize the biggest conspiracy of the 21st century, hoodwinking the world’s foremost superpower and somehow managing to get away with it.

Machiavellian or dumb? Obama's take on Hillary Clinton's emails is hard to figure out

His efforts to minimize his former secretary of state's diversion of emails from government-secured servers to her own non-secure home server by calling it “careless” may actually harm her in the eyes of the public or even serve as a dog whistle to the FBI. That’s because carelessness is a species of negligence, and espionage, which is the failure to safeguard state secrets by removing them from their proper place of custody, is the rare federal crime that can be proved by negligence -- to be precise, gross negligence.

Gross negligence is the failure to perform a high legal duty with the great probability of an improper result -- for example, driving a car 90 miles per hour in New York's Times Square. The high legal duty Clinton had was to safeguard state secrets; the improper result is the exposure of those secrets contained in her emails.

What did she do that was criminal, and who was harmed by her behavior?

Sanders campaign, New York officials cry foul after New York voters report issues

Bernie Sanders' campaign on Tuesday called reports of voting irregularities in New York state "a disgrace" as local officials rushed to condemn the city Board of Elections for stripping more than 125,000 Democratic voters from the rolls.

"It is absurd that in Brooklyn, New York -- where I was born, actually -- tens of thousands of people as I understand it, have been purged from the voting rolls," Sanders said during an evening campaign rally at Penn State University.

In an email to CNN, Sanders spokesman Karthik Ganapathy called the state's handling of the primary a "shameful demonstration."

"From long lines and dramatic understaffing to longtime voters being forced to cast affidavit ballots and thousands of registered New Yorkers being dropped from the rolls, what's happening today is a disgrace," he said.

FLASHBACK: Ted Cruz Busted Lying About Losing His Insurance Due To Obamacare, He Still Has Coverage

On Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz declared that he and his wife have no health insurance because their carrier canceled their policy due to Obamacare.

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s campaign on Friday said the Texas senator never lost his health insurance — contradicting his claim a day earlier that his plan had been canceled due to Obamacare. Campaign spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told the Wall Street Journal that Cruz’s insurance broker told him he had lost coverage after Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas terminated his preferred provider organization, or PPO, on Dec. 31. But he had actually been automatically enrolled by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas in a “health maintenance organization” plan that kept him covered in January.

PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY RELEASES VIDEO AFTER ATTEMPTED COUP BY CRUZ SUPPORTERS: “I’M STILL IN CHARGE” (VIDEO)

Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly has been a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her best-selling 1964 book, A Choice Not An Echo. She has been a leader of the pro-family movement since 1972 when she led the fight to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment.

Phyllis Schlafly is 91 years-old.

On March 11, 2016 conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump for President at his St. Louis rally.

But not everyone in her organization, Eagle Forum – or her family – agreed with Phyllis Schlafly’s decision.

Two weeks ago Phyllis Schlafly released several board members for disloyalty to the organization.
The group was planning to hold rogue board meeting to take over the Eagle Forum.

Last week the rogue Cruz supporters attempted a coup at Eagle Forum.

They held a non-sanctioned meeting and reportedly blocked Phyllis Schlafly from their conference call.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the Cruz people to have done this, and not believe it would have catastrophic impact on his campaign, demonstrates both unbelievable hubris, and desperation on the cusp of madness!

There are many issues where I disagree with Mrs. Schlafly, but I absolutely defend her right to speak her mind, both publicly and privately.

Democrats March Toward Cliff

As Democratic-insider “super-delegates” give Hillary Clinton a seemingly insurmountable lead for the presidential nomination, the former Secretary of State’s negative ratings continue to soar to stunning levels, hitting a net 24-point unfavorable in the new NBC-Wall Street Journal poll.

It is hard to imagine someone who is viewed unfavorably by a clear majority of voters (56 percent) and with a net-negative of 24 points winning the White House, except that most voters also don’t like the top Republican choices either. Donald Trump sports a 41-point net-negative and Sen. Ted Cruz is at minus-23 points. (By contrast, of the two trailing candidates, Sen. Bernie Sanders gets a net-positive 9 points and Gov. John Kasich a net-positive 12 points.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is hard to imagine someone who is viewed unfavorably by a clear majority of voters (56 percent) and with a net-negative of 24 points getting any votes at all, let alone winning 2 of the last 10 primaries against Sanders.

Yes, Bernie Sanders Will Become President. Hillary Clinton’s FBI Investigation Isn’t a ‘Nothingburger’

Perhaps the greatest compliment paid to me recently was from a Boston Globe columnist who remarked that I must really be Andy Kaufman. It’s a compliment, first because Kaufman was a genius, and also because his genius rested in the absurd; almost like voting for a presidential candidate being investigated by the FBI. In 2016, the most qualified candidate according to smart Democratic strategists holds negative favorability ratings in every single national poll. In 8 out of 10 national polls, Hillary Clinton’s favorability ratings are negative by 15 points or more. According to recent CBS and NBS/WSJ polls, Clinton holds negative favorability ratings by 23 and 24 point margins, respectively. A progressive said to “get things done” won’t be able to win the White House with such negative national ratings.

Patient complaints about Dr. David Gorski are just the beginning... why Karmanos Cancer Institute patients must save their own lives from mentally deranged doctors

If you ask people to comment on cancer surgeon Dr. David Gorski ("ORAC"), a lot of words and phrases get repeated with striking frequency. "Sociopath" "Hate monger" "Pathological liar" and even "A danger to society."

It's little surprise that Dr. Gorski's own patients also warn about his hateful demeanor and bizarre neglect of patient care. In a patient review titled "Egomaniac," one patient says Dr. David Gorski is a "Garbage doctor with his nose up in the air and a head too big to fit through the door."

Another patient, Barbara L., posted, "I felt like I was in the way. As if this doctor didn't want to see me as a patient. As if my health problems aren't difficult enough without an uninvolved, not helpful doctor. Ugh. I am going to see someone else next time."

New York primary results: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump win in the Empire State

Presidential campaign frontrunners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton took a big step toward securing nominations from their parties after both emerged victorious from the New York primary on 19 April. The expected wins push the two ahead of their rivals and give their campaigns another boost ahead of the 26 April primaries in a number of states.

With over 80% of the precincts reporting, the former secretary of state led rival Bernie Sanders by more than 15 points. On the Republican side, Trump surged past John Kasich and Ted Cruz to lead by more than 35 points.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump won a landslide, picking up 89 delegates to Kasich's 3. Cruz was shut out entirely.

Hillary's "victory" over Sanders was marginal, with Hillary picking up 139 delegates to Sanders' 106. But reports of massive with the Democratic vote continue to pour in, such as broken machines, changed party affiliations or outright scrubbing from the voter rolls; over 100,000 in Brooklyn alone. Needless to say, all these irregularities hit precincts where Sanders was strong and already lawsuits are flying.

This is going to be worse than the 2000 debacle.

“Why are they boasting about something that is going to rub many people as being a little dubious… The way his campaign boasts about its cleverness is foolish.”

FLASHBACK 2010 - What Has America Become by Ken Huber of Tawas City

Has America become the land of special interest and home of the double standard?

Lets see: if we lie to the Congress, it's a felony and if the Congress lies to us its just politics; if we dislike a black person, we're racist and if a black person dislikes whites, its their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don't burn books in America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of communist and socialist threats by renaming them progressive; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against President Obama's policies you're a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

Ted Cruz has a meltdown on a radio show

Sean Hannity got a little frustrated with Ted Cruz during a radio interview this afternoon over his campaign’s delegate game. Cruz said he doesn’t think most people care about this stuff. Hannity shot back by invoking his millions of followers and saying plenty of people “find this whole process confusing.” When Cruz dismissively said only Donald Trump‘s people are complaining, Hannity kind of blew up: “Senator, why do you do this? Every single time––no, you gotta stop! Every time I have you on the air and I ask you a legitimate question, you try to throw this in my face, I’m getting sick of it!” Cruz testily asked, “Sean, can I answer your last question without being interrupted?” He explained how the system works and how the “noise and complaining and whining” is only coming from Team Trump.

Ted Cruz facing big questions after last-place finish in New York primary

On April 26, voters in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island will head to the polls in their respective primaries, with 118 delegates up for grabs in the conservative contest. Republicans in those states are expected to vote more like those in New York did, as opposed to how those in Iowa did. Mr Cruz won in Iowa after denouncing Mr Trump's "New York values."

Preliminary polls from Real Clear Politics show Mr Cruz struggling in Connecticut, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Mr Trump is leading in each of those states.

CHEMICAL COMPANIES HIDING TOXIC EVIDENCE UNDER “TRADE SECRET” CLAUSE

The secrecy is replete all throughout the system, i.e. government, business, school system, media and the medical system. Secrecy is said to be a necessary tool in the conduct of business in order to protect the viability of a company.

The problem is: that same scheme which allows the companies to advance and compete actively within a given industry is also harming the end-users of their products by allowing the introduction of dangerous substance that most of the time are life threatening.

Manufacturing consent in science: the diabolical twist

In the famous 1988 Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman book, Manufacturing Consent, the authors explore how media distort the news and employ propaganda, in order to bring about consent/consensus in the population.

From so many directions, official science is shaping our future—that’s why it’s vital to understand the manipulations involved.

Former NBC boss asserts his grandson damaged by vaccines

Now, in the wake of the unsuccessful attempt to censor the film Vaxxed (trailer), we have Bob Wright, the former CEO of media giant, NBC Universal, authoring a new book, “The Wright Stuff: From NBC to Autism Speaks.”

In its review of the book, Accuracy in Media provides a devastating quote from Wright about his autistic grandson:

“Right after he got the standard one-year vaccinations, he developed a very high fever and screamed for hours. Katie [Wright’s daughter] was so frightened she called her husband to come home from work and they put the baby in an ice bath to bring down the fever. When they called the doctor they were told the reaction was completely normal.”

Yes, completely normal in the eyes of a lunatic licensed to practice medicine.

Normal, if brain damage is something parents should be expected to shrug off.

Normal, if destroying the life of a child, through officially sanctioned means, is simply written off as the cost of doing pharmaceutical business.

The Shocking Reason for FATCA… and What Comes Next

If you’ve never heard of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), you’re not alone.

Few people have, and even fewer fully grasp the terrible things it foreshadows.

FATCA is a U.S. law that forces every financial institution in the world to give the IRS information about its American clients. Complying with it is a huge financial and administrative burden, measured in hundreds of billions of dollars. It’s a paper shuffler’s dream come true.

FATCA is the reason the vast majority of banks, brokerages, and other financial institutions outside of the U.S. shun American clients.

Trump: Classified Part of 9/11 Report Shows ‘Very Profound’ Saudi Role

What about Israel and the Bush administration Donald!

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The final chapter of the 9/11 report consisting of 28 pages reportedly claims that a Saudi diplomat at a consulate in the US state of California directly aided at least two of the 19 hijackers when they arrived in the United States.

“I think I know what it’s going to say,” Trump told Fox News. “It’s going to be very profound, having to do with Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia’s role on the World Trade Center and the attack.”

Webmaster addition: This is an example of my concern that too much of Trump's world view comes from what he sees on TV. Trump is not yet the President, and cannot see classified documents.

Trump Nearly Sweeps New York, Takes Almost All State Delgates: What Happens Next

Trump began the night with 756 delegates, according to The Associated Press. He appears poised to take 89 of the 95 delegates that were up for grabs in New York.

Anti-Trump Forces Routed in New York

It was nothing short of a crushing defeat for anti-Trump forces. Victory in the New York primary, Club for Growth president David McIntosh told National Review earlier this month, would be achieved by “getting Trump under 50 percent,” the threshold at which a candidate secures all 14 of the statewide delegates. Every delegate counts at this point, since Trump’s victory on the first ballot of the convention hangs in the balance. Keeping the real-estate mogul under 50 percent could have deprived him of perhaps 20 delegates, depending on how well he did in each of the congressional districts.

But there would be no stopping Trump on this night. He won more than 60 percent of the vote, taking all but a few of New York’s 95 delegates.

Dutch Referendum Proves Eurosceptics Wrong

***
We are talking about a minority in the Dutch national scope and an even more negligible number of people in a common European scope, considering the population of EU is a little over 500 million people. Is this a victory of Euroscepticism, or what! Actually, the result was announced as being exactly that all over the Union. What is being overlooked, however, is that this result actually disproves the eurosceptics’ claims that Brussels enforces its policy over member states, that too much national sovereignty has been seized, and that the nation state has been placed on its knees. It is exactly the opposite – member states are fully capable of turning the entire union inside-out and they do not need to do it with the full support of their population at that. Thirty-odd percent are sufficient, and that is not out of the entire population, but out of the ones who found voting worthwhile.

Why ice cream makers Ben and Jerry just got arrested (+video)
Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield were participating in the Democracy Awakening protests outside the US Capitol, which aim to call attention to the role of money in politics.

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, the co-founders of Ben & Jerry's ice cream, aren't just ice cream makers. They are also advocates of social change – even if that means getting arrested.

The two were among the 300 people arrested and soon released at the US Capitol on Monday, as part of "Democracy Spring" protests that have been taking place for the past week, campaigning for finance reform and voting rights. Many protesters are staunch supporters of Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, whom the famous ice cream duo has publicly backed with a variety of initiatives from ice cream itself to illuminated road signs.

Shouldn't the Republican Party Have All Potential Presidential Nominees Demonstrate Presidential Eligibility?

Although generally ignored by the mainstream media (including Fox News), whether Senator Ted Cruz is eligible to be President of the United States depends upon both law and facts and remains an unresolved issue.

Cruz's inability and/or unwillingness to conclusively demonstrate that he is eligible, coupled with rival Donald Trump's references to him as Lyin' Ted, have increased suspicion instead of dispelled it.

I have concluded as a matter of law that since Cruz indisputably was a natural born Canadian, (1) he is not a natural born United States citizen and (2) the United States citizenship of his mother made him eligible to become a naturalized United States citizen.

Since 1934, the United States citizenship of either parent has enabled a child to become a naturalized United States citizen, but it is not sufficient to make that child a natural born United States citizen and therefore eligible to be President of the United States.

Lloyds commissioned leading global risk management consultancy the Risk Advisory Group to produce a report analyzing what factors could prompt the spread of civil unrest around the world.

The report found that, “Instances of political violence contagion are becoming more frequent and the contagion effect ever more rapid and powerful,” with head of exposure management and reinsurance, Trevor Maynard, warning that global outbreaks of violence are increasingly likely to develop into “pandemics” of civil unrest.

This transformation will lead to “widespread disruption yet prove extremely difficult to anticipate,” and threaten “international stability,” according to the report.

Ted Cruz’s Yiddish ad tells New York Jews he is God’s chosen candidate

Both Republican and Democratic candidates have been courting Jewish voters ahead of Tuesday"s New York primary vote, looking for an edge in competitive districts with large Jewish populations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This creeps me out to the point where the hair on the back of my neck is break-dancing.

To all those "Cruzistas" out there, please be aware of one very important fact about Cruz's presidential candidacy, other than the fact that he cannot legally run for President because he is not a "natural born" citizen; he is a dyed in the wool Dominionist.

As reported at religionnews.com in February of this year:

Cruz resonates with the evangelical culture warriors. He mixes what New York Times columnist David Brooks describes as political “brutalism” with a belief that he is engaged in a fight with the devil for the soul of the nation. It is only a matter of time before Cruz assumes the role of the Old Testament prophet Elijah and tries to cast down fire from heaven to destroy the “prophets of Baal” who oppose his campaign. When Cruz says he wants to “reclaim” or “restore” America, he does not only have the Obama administration in mind. This agenda takes him much deeper into the American past. Cruz wants to “restore” the United States to what he believes is its original identity: a Christian nation. But before he can bring the country back to its Christian roots, Cruz needs to prove that Christian ideals were indeed important to the American founding. That is why he has David Barton on his side. For several decades Barton has been a GOP activist with a political mission to make the United States a Christian nation again. He runs “Keep the Promise,” a multimillion-dollar Cruz super-PAC. He’s one of Cruz’s most trusted advisers. Barton is the founder and president of WallBuilders, a Christian ministry based in his hometown of Aledo, Texas. He writes books and hosts radio and television shows designed to convince evangelicals and anyone else who will listen that America was once a Christian nation and needs to be one again.

If you want to envision what a Cruz presidency will be like, just think of the governance portrayed in the movie "V for Vendetta", and you'll have a pretty good grasp of what Cruz will bring to the job; more surveillance, more wars, more governmental over-reach, and massive marginalization of anyone who isn't Christian or Jewish.

And if you haven't seen this film, please rent it or buy it; it is one of the most brilliant cautionary tales about government over-reach I have ever seen this lifetime.

The Boston Bombing Anniversary: A Legacy of Unanswered Questions

The Boston Marathon Bombing is one of the most astonishing stories of the new millennium, a smaller but no less problematic 9/11, where, again, so much doesn’t add up. And, again, the FBI appears to have played its long-running role as a coverup vehicle — protecting those who apparently have more hold over the Bureau than either Congress or the temporary occupant of the White House.

In the days after the bombing, WhoWhatWhy risked ridicule, marginalization, and worse, to honor the best instincts of journalism. Virtually alone among American news organizations — indeed, news media the world over, which just promoted the problem-riddled official version of events — we kept our heads down, ignored the brickbats and, with few people and limited resources, pressed onward.

The result was the more than 70 stories we published on our site. We hope, if you are not familiar with them, you will take the time to educate yourself about this mass-murder mystery that touches on so many of the central issues of our day.

It is profoundly important that we keep the spotlight on events like these, where so much of the official narrative does not add up.

Hijacked by pro-vaccine troll Dr. David Gorski, Wikipedia publishes deceitful entry on VAXXED documentary

Most of you have probably heard about the firestorm caused by Andrew Wakefield's explosive documentary VAXXED, which details decades of scientific fraud covering up the link between vaccines and the injuries they routinely cause.

Well, Natural News has now learned from trusted sources that Wikipedia's incredibly biased entry on VAXXED was written by none other than pro-vaccine shill Dr. David Gorski, notorious for his relentless and callous attacks on vaccine skeptics, alternative medicine, and its supporters.

HPV vaccine makers to be sued in Japan for damage and deaths caused by toxic immunizations

In response to vaccine injuries linked to the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix, 12 plaintiffs in Japan plan to file a class action lawsuit against the Japanese government, Merck and GlaxoSmithKine after June 2016. The plaintiffs are seeking answers about why they were not told about the HPV vaccine risks before they received the vaccination.

As it currently stands, Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has advised local governments not to actively promote HPV vaccine use. In fact, the health ministry reversed their HPV vaccination recommendation in 2013 after HPV vaccine recipients began experiencing horrible side effects including everything from paralysis to short-term memory loss.

Bad As The Islamic State Is, Assad Is Worse

We frequently post about the Islamic State. Bottom line: How human beings can behave that barbarically in the 21st century is an ongoing mystery. Of course, the Islamic State publicizes its crimes against humanity, which makes them difficult to avoid. Much more covert are the crimes that the Assad regime commits against its citizens. But, as a headline in the International Business Times proclaims in December 2015, Number Of ISIS Victims In 2015 Is Much Less Than Assad Regime-Inflicted Casualties.

HILLARY...CRUZ-ING TO THE WHITE HOUSE

The Republicans sideline their most popular candidate since Reagan and instead nominate an ineligible, unpopular, cheating-on-his-wife religious nutcase who has pledged to use nukes in the Middle East and start WW3 so that Jesus will deem it safe to return to earth and kill all the unbelievers. The Democrats also sideline their most popular candidate and through delegates, hand Hillary the nomination. Once this happens, a massive push to disqualify Cruz will take place , he will quietly step aside and Hillary is crowned Queen of the World. Nevermind that a majority of Americans despise and distrust her... she will go on TV and wring her hands and say that she was hoping for a real election but what can she do?

Brooklyn man busted for bribing cops to expedite gun permit applications as part of probe into NYPD corruption

Lichtenstein, who has his own gun permit, is a member of the Borough Park Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer patrol. He was arrested Sunday at his Pomona, Rockland County, home.

He would charge members of the Orthodox community between $5,000 and $25,000 to expedite their gun permit requests, community sources said.

The process typically takes at least a year and candidates with low-level criminal offenses are almost always nixed.

One applicant approved for a gun permit in 2013 had a long criminal history, the feds said.

Apparently, gun control is only for the goyim!

Flashback: MISLEADING NYC ELECTION MAILER COULD BE BAD NEWS FOR TRUMP, SANDERS

New Yorkers will go to the polls on April 19 to cast their votes in a primary that is of crucial importance to both parties. For the Republicans, it could make the difference in Donald Trump’s quest to win the necessary delegates ahead of the convention.

Yet, tens of thousands of newly registered voters in New York City may not show up to vote. Why? Because of the vague wording on a postcard.

The card from the New York CIty Board of Elections informed voters that “the” primary would be held in September.

NEW YORK VOTERS FACE OBSTACLES AND IRREGULARITIES

Thanks to the arcane voter registration rules of New York’s closed primary and various mess-ups by election officials, a lot of New York voters might be in for a long day.

One major problem is that the Empire State’s primary is closed, which means that only New Yorkers specifically registered as either a Democrat or Republican will be allowed to vote. Even worse, New Yorkers who wanted to switch their party affiliation — for example, from the Working Families Party, a force in New York progressive politics that backs Bernie Sanders, to Democrat to vote for the Vermont senator or from “Independent” to “Republican” to vote for Donald Trump — had to do so last October in order to be allowed to cast a ballot.

In other words, if you were registered as anything other than a Democrat on October 9th of last year and you want to vote for Sanders, you are out of luck.
