Roseburg area rancher encounters Malheur refuge checkpoints

“They were very professional and kind, but when you have guns kind of pointing at you, it is scary,” Spencer said in describing the scene to The News-Review on Friday. “They (officers) were very, very cautious. They asked us to get out and keep our hands free. They were FBI, but they looked like Army personnel. There were snipers around.

“It felt like a checkpoint in a foreign country,” he continued. “There was no room for error. They asked for ID and ran our license plate. They asked me if I had a gun and I told them I did and where it was in the rig. I told them to help themselves as far as looking, but they actually barely looked around. I guess they were comfortable with who we were after checking our IDs and plate.”

Cruz: President Trump would nuke Denmark

This guy has lost it!

Ted Cruz ridiculed Donald Trump on Wednesday for his “Trumpertantrum,” saying his recent Twitterstorm is indicative of a candidate who doesn’t have the temperament to be commander in chief.

“I mean, we’re liable to wake up one morning and Donald, if he were president, would have nuked Denmark.

FLASHBACK: Army Report Details How Military Can Be Used Against Tea Party, Right Wingers & American Citizens

The study begins by laying out how the U.S. Army’s Operating Concept 2016-2028 will include military operations throughout the United States. The outrageous report goes on to describe a theoretical situation where the U.S. Army is sent in to a city that has been taken over by Tea Party “insurrectionists”.After demonizing what they call “right-wing demagogues” and “mobs of angry whites” the report goes on to say:

“In May 2016 an extremist militia motivated by the goals of the “tea party” movement takes over the government of Darlington, South Carolina…. The Department of Homeland Security responds to the governor’s request by asking for defense support to civil law enforcement. After the Department of Justice states that the conditions in Darlington and surrounding areas meet the conditions necessary to invoke the Insurrection Act, the President invokes it.”

Ammon Bundy's Attorney Has been Up On Disciplinary Charges

Rather strange proceedings even for the feds. Check this though. Ammon Bundy's attorney is a former prosecutor who was brought up on disciplinary charges to wit:

Craig Cook · Sandy, Oregon
Ammon's lawyer sounds like a real neat guy:

Reprimand

On Jan. 17, 2008, the disciplinary board approved a stipulation for discipline reprimanding Eugene lawyer C. Michael Arnold for violating RPC 8.4(a)(2) (commit a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer in other respects).

TPP protesters shut down central Auckland as ministers sign controversial deal

All motorway access points are now open after protesters blockaded the Cook St, Wellington St and Hobson St offramps earlier this afternoon.

But the Transport Agency said commuters should expect delays and some diversions as they head into or out of the central city. The Auckland Harbour Bridge has remained open throughout the protests and traffic is free flowing.

The agency is also advising drivers to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings as there are larger numbers of pedestrians on central city roads than usual.

"Many of them have been moving on and off the roads and walking in front of traffic. Some vehicles are also making sudden lane changes and u-turns to avoid delays."

Earlier, central Auckland grounded to a halt as trade ministers signed the TPP. All streets around Sky City Convention Centre and motorway on and off ramps leading to the central business district were blocked by protesters.

TPPA signing: Thousands take to the streets as trade deal is made official

Protesters against the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) did not appear to understand the trade deal, Prime Minister John Key says.

Seven years after talks began, the TPPA is now official after it was signed in Auckland by 12 trade ministers on Thursday.

Protesters had gathered outside and security was tight at Auckland's SkyCity convention centre for the official signing.

Key said the TPPA was "overwhelmingly in the best interests of our country and citizens".

New Zealand was proud to be involved in the whole process, which was many years in the making, he said

Oregon standoff leader Ammon Bundy, others indicted

By STEVEN DUBOIS Updated 30 min ago (0)

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted Ammon Bundy and some of the men and women who joined him at the armed occupation of an Oregon wildlife refuge, authorities said Wednesday.
However, the indictment remained sealed and further details on the charges were unavailable.
Defense attorneys demanded the immediate unsealing of the indictment — a request denied Wednesday by U.S. Magistrate Judge Janice Stewart.In a criminal complaint, defendants have a right to a preliminary hearing in which they can question the arresting officer under oath about probable cause for the charges.

After an indictment, they are no longer entitled to such a proceeding.
The cancellation of preliminary hearings that had been scheduled for Wednesday dismayed attorneys for the accused.

A Golden Age for Pentagon Waste

As we have often noted one of the giant logs stuck in the eye of many conservatives, people who typically argue for smaller government, is that they often defend military spending with little reservation. Defense, we are told is enumerated in the Constitution and as such is a legitimate expenditure. And yes, defense, is enumerated in the Constitution. Massive unchecked spending, undeclared wars, and bases around the world are not however enumerated in the Constitution.

Kiev's Kredit-Dnipro Bank said the decision to accept Strauss-Kahn and five others to the advisory body was taken on Monday and goes into immediate effect. It added that Strauss-Kahn would serve as an independent committee member who does not represent shareholders' interests.

Toxic Pool of Bad Loans Threatens World Economy

Beneath the surface of the global financial system lurks a multitrillion-dollar problem that could sap the strength of large economies for years to come. The problem is the giant, stagnant pool of loans that companies and people around the world are struggling to pay back. Bad debts have been a drag on economic activity ever since the financial crisis of 2008, but in recent months, the threat posed by an overhang of bad loans appears to be rising. China is the biggest source of worry. Some analysts estimate that China’s troubled credit could exceed $5 trillion, a staggering number that is equivalent to half the size of the country’s annual economic output.

In comparison, about $2 million had been spent in New Hampshire by this point in the 2012 race that ultimately came down to Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

Circus Politics: Will Our Freedoms Survive Another Presidential Election?

Anyone who believes that this election will bring about any real change in how the American government does business is either incredibly naïve, woefully out-of-touch, or oblivious to the fact that as an in-depth Princeton University study shows, we now live in an oligarchy that is “of the rich, by the rich and for the rich.”

Comedian John Cleese Says 'Political Correctness Can Lead to an Orwellian Nightmare'

In a video published on Big Think, Comedian John Cleese said, "I'm offended every day. For example, the British newspapers every day offend me with their laziness, their nastiness, and their inaccuracy, but I'm not going to expect someone to stop that happening; I just simply speak out about it." He goes on to say, "All humor is critical. If we start saying, oh, we mustn't criticize or offend them, then humor is gone, and with humor goes a sense of proportion - and then, as far as I'm concerned, you're living in '1984,'" Cleese said, referring to George Orwell's classic novel.

New Moms Demand Action Gun Control “Comedy” PSA with SNL’s Rachel Dratch Is Just Dumb

The implication of this one is that all the time there are horribly scary incidents where people who can legally carry guns into restaurants are getting legally intoxicated at said restaurants and somehow accidentally shooting families with kids who were just innocently attempting to enjoy dinner out. Because, you know, everyone is just bringing their AK47s to the local pizza joint, getting hammered, and leaving those guns sitting around in precarious positions where they could accidentally go off and kill everyone… or some such nonsense.

Pitchfork Time? "Elites Have Lost Their Healthy Fear Of The Masses"

"Today’s elites have lost the sense of fear that inspired a healthy respect for the masses among their predecessors. Now they can despise them as losers, as the aristocracy of ancien régime France despised the peasants who would soon be burning their châteaux. Surely today’s elites are going to learn how to fear before we see any reversal of the recent concentration of wealth and power."

The Continuing Demonization of Cash

The insidious nature of the war on cash derives not just from the hurdles governments place in the way of those who use cash, but also from the aura of suspicion that has begun to pervade private cash transactions. In a normal market economy, businesses would welcome taking cash. After all, what business would willingly turn down customers?

Jane Kelsey: TPP - all pain, no gain

In New Zealand, we dared to declare ourselves nuclear-free in the 1980s - dire warnings that ditching the Anzus alliance would make us a pariah, isolated and ridiculed never came to pass. Instead, we were celebrated as a small, independent nation with the guts to decide our own future. Why can't we do the same with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)?

The National Government will today ignore widespread opposition from ordinary New Zealanders when it signs the secretly negotiated deal. Doubtless we'll be fed the old Anzus line that New Zealand can't afford to not to be at the table.

National's glitzy new "TPP fact" page is bad wine repackaged in new bottles. Here's a few facts they don't tell you. The projected economic gains of 0.9 per cent of GDP by 2030 are within their own margin of error, even before costs are factored in and disregarding unrealistic modelling.

TPP protesters shut down central Auckland

Central Auckland has ground to a halt as the signing of a controversial trade deal looms. All streets around Sky City Convention Centre and motorway on and off ramps leading to the central business district have been blocked by protesters.

Inside Sky City Convention Centre, a long table stretched along a stage with big bouquets of blue and white flowers displayed in front and a large screen, with photos of the Sky Tower, Southern Alps, and a tui in rotation with TPP logo, behind.

Dignitaries from the dozen partnership countries were this morning gathering to put pen to paper at 11.30am, a major step in what is being described as the "biggest trade deal in a generation".

The agreement is designed to free up trade and investment between the countries, but has been a beacon for controversy for several years, mainly due to the secrecy of the deal, lack of public consultation and fears New Zealand's sovereignty could be diminished.

Democrats and Republicans AGREE ON SOMETHING! The System Is ‘Rigged’…

Yes, voters in both parties have always expressed suspicions that the game is stacked against them in one way or another. But in 2016, it seems the party that owns the “R” word could own the election. More than anything, that may explain why Hillary Clinton didn’t put Bernie Sanders away in Iowa’s Democratic caucuses on Monday night. She never uses the word.

America’s 60-year transformation from economic juggernaut to credit junkie

For American consumers who refused to trim back their lifestyles, their futures were financed by the bank. As you can see in the chart above, it was during the 1980s that Americans began taking on unprecedented debt. This helped make banking a lucrative business. The two exceptions were the banking crisis of 1987 and economic depression of 2008. Both times the federal government bailed the banks out, but not the lenders. The American dream has become the American nightmare.

Bernie Sanders and the Fraud of Democratic Socialism

The Democratic Party’s leading candidates for president both have embraced progressivism with a bear hug. Should we be shocked? Probably not. After all, is this any more shocking than the substantial support that likely Republican voters show for the bombastic Donald Trump? The fact remains that we may need intelligent debates and a general election in November, 2016, to sort some of this nonsense out.

Trump Accuses Ted Cruz of Dirty Tricks Before Iowa: “He Cheated- A Total Fraud!”

The election chaos is hardly settled after Iowa began to cement the path of the primary and election. In fact, it has officially just gone dirty. Right or wrong, Trump has undoubtedly upset the apple cart, and the system has clearly been gunning for him. Clearly, they would prefer Cruz, despite his Tea Party credentials, who is married to a Goldman Sachs executive and closer to the interests of the establishment.

DHS Official Thinks People Should Have To Give Up Their Anonymity To Use The Internet

Apparently, the only way to stop terrorists from hating us for our freedom is to strip away those offensive freedoms.

Erik Barnett, the DHS's attache to the European Union, pitched some freedom-stripping ideas to a presumably more receptive audience via an article for a French policy magazine. Leveraging both the recent Paris attacks and the omnipresent law enforcement excuse for any bad idea -- child porn -- Barnett suggested victory in the War on Terror can be achieved by stripping internet users of their anonymity. You know, all of them, not just the terrorists.

Why Ramarley Graham's Parents Just Slept On The DOJ's Steps

It was still dark in lower Manhattan, a little before 6 a.m. Wednesday, when the parents of Ramarley Graham shook off their sleeping bags and assembled on the steps outside the Department of Justice office of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

Dozens of supporters had joined them for the all-night vigil in honor of the Bronx teen gunned down by NYPD police exactly four years ago. They slept when they could on the cold, brick plaza outside the DOJ building. They sang songs, read poems and talked to reporters.

Then Constance Malcolm and Frank Graham, Ramarley's parents, stepped up to a podium.

"We want accountability," Malcolm said. "Preet Bharara, stop dragging your feet!"

"Losing a child is the worst possible thing anything can go through," Frank Graham said. "You don't sleep at night and you wonder during the day... You cry yourself to sleep when you do get sleep and you wake up with tears."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The gunning down of African-American kids with absolute impunity appears to have become the brutal norm for far too many American police departments; this has to change, and it has to stop.

Now.

Flint Residents Bring Brown Water And Clumps Of Hair To Washington

Gladyes Williamson paced the halls of Congress on Wednesday, armed with a bottle of brown water and clumps of her own hair.

She'd traveled with a group from Flint, Michigan, where high lead levels have made the water irritating to the skin and unsafe to drink since 2014. Williamson trekked 14 hours on a packed bus, with no sleep, to remind Washington of what’s happening in a poor, embattled, industrial town nearly 75 miles north of Detroit.

"Not only do we feel like the Republicans hate us, but now that the Democrats don’t care either," Williams, 62, told The Huffington Post. "We just need something tangible to make us believe that politicians care about us. The wards in Flint haven’t seen any of this federal aid, but we do all the tax paying and all the dying.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Williamson is correct in her assessment that neither party really cares about the horrific health damage done to the people of Flint, and beyond, due to the poisoning of American's water.

And the problem is, even if some state or Federal agency is able to cough up the funds in order to treat the lead poisoning by chelation therapy, or intravenous vitamin C therapy, the damage done to the brains of the kids who have been poisoned is irreversible.

Everyone who signed off on this atrocity should resign their jobs en masse, be tried by a jury of their peers, convicted for reckless public endangerment, and serve hard time in prison.

Unfortunately, setting a very ugly example of what happens to people who do this the only way in which to prevent such morally vile actions from happening in the future.

DOCUMENTS REVEAL DRUG FIRMS’ SCHEMES TO MAXIMIZE PROFITS ON CANCER, AIDS AND HEART DRUGS

Two drugmakers have made a practice of buying and then dramatically hiking the prices of low-cost drugs given to patients with life-threatening conditions including heart disease, AIDS and cancer, according to excerpts from thousands of documents released by federal lawmakers.

A congressional review of more than 300,000 pages from Turing Pharmaceuticals and Valeant Pharmaceuticals reveals how executives planned to maximize profits while fending off negative publicity over the price hikes.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland) released the information Tuesday ahead of a hearing Thursday to examine exorbitant price spikes. Cummings has used his position atop the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to investigate several companies that have bought previously low-cost drugs and jacked up their prices many times over.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last statement is pure and utter bovine excrement.

And please; do not expect Congress to actually DO anything about this issue, because their campaign contributions depend so heavily on healthy contributions from the medical/pharmaceutical industrial complex.

This is sound and fury for public consumption, but expect absolutely zero progress in the area of pharmaceutical companies gouging the public with their prices.

And remember; it is entirely possible that your primary care physician is taking kickbacks for prescribing a specific drug for you, particularly if it is an "off book" prescription.

Pfizer, the world's largest pharmaceutical company, pleaded guilty yesterday and agreed to pay $430 million to resolve criminal and civil charges that it paid doctors to prescribe its epilepsy drug, Neurontin, to patients with ailments that the drug was not federally approved to treat.

I did, personally, get caught up in that last one.

So at this point in my life, I have no difficulty asking a physician if they are being compensated by the drug company which manufactures any medication they are prescribing.

This is a reasonable question, given the current state of health care in this country.

Internet In an Uproar Over Trademark Regulation as Fine Brothers Surrender

Today, of course, the judicial system that has evolved from English common law is celebrated as a mighty achievement of modern civilization. Certainly, in the US, the six million individuals suffering from varying degrees of incarceration – the most anywhere in the world – might differ.

The US in particular has perfected a system of "justice" in which prisoners often find themselves incarcerated in penal institutions operated by for-profit private entities. These entities, in fact, may have contracts with the municipality that demands the town, city or state maintain prisons at a certain level of population.

Perhaps this explains why in the US especially there are so many miscarriages of justice and why DNA testing has led to the release of so many prisoners over the past decade. There have been notable releases of prisoners from death row, especially.

Secretary of Defense Announces How He'll Waste $582 Billion

Carter highlighted projects inside the “Strategic Capabilities Office, or SCO for short,” a murky and extremely wasteful corner of the Pentagon where some of our dumbest, most-likely-to-fail projects are born (and often die, at great expense):

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This penchant for waste from the DOD is another very intense reason why the US government should not at all be looking at going to war with Russia and/or China.

In Russia and China, when companies make weapons or planes or ships for either country, when these items are field deployed, they operate as advertised, or better, by the companies which make them.

Unfortunately, in the US, due to the incestuous relationship between weapons makers and Congressional representatives who approve of contracts (and are, I imagine, covertly, rewarded by those weapons makers for those contracts), when items are field deployed, they are generally behind schedule, over budget, and do not at all perform as advertised.

Just think about the F-35, for Pete's sake; I rest my case!!!

ABC7 News has found them and tweeted out the above picture.??

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a native San Franciscan, this absolutely breaks my heart.

Will SOMEBODY, please, cough up the airfare to send Mayor Ed Lee to Salt Lake City, where the city officials have almost completely ended homelessness by providing shelter and counseling to their people, because they found it was cheaper in the long run, than stays in hospitals and prisons?!?

New Law In London Would Fine Homeless £1,000 For Sleeping Outside Or “Loitering”

By John Vibes

The homeless people in Hackney, London are facing expulsion from the street due to a new law will allow the police to give out fines and other legal penalties to homeless people who are found loitering, begging and sleeping in commercial places.

This “Public Space Protection Order” which was introduced by the council of Hackney will place a fine of £1000 on homeless activities. The order has been met with numerous criticisms, with many pointing out that the new laws effectively outlaw homelessness...

Webmaster addition: If the homeless had £1,000 they would not be sleeping in the streets! So what will happen is they will be arrested and thrown in prison for not paying thew fine ... which gives them a bed, a roof, and three meals a day. So why not just give the homeless a bed, a roof, and three meals a day and save all the legal costs?

FEDS HELPED HIDE INVESTIGATION INTO BIG BANK’S MONEY LAUNDERING FOR DRUG CARTELS

A federal judge ruled last week that the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) will be forced to share a report on its business practices with the public — a decision both the bank and the Department of Justice (DOJ) fought in court to prevent. The report is based on the findings of an ongoing government audit of the bank initiated amid revelations in 2012, that it laundered money for drug cartels and terrorist organizations.

JUDGE CONVICTED AFTER HE ADMITTED TO TORTURING MAN IN COURT WITH 50,000 VOLTS TO SHUT HIM UP

A man representing himself in a Maryland court was shocked with 50,000 volts of electricity by the judge because he continued to speak when the judge ordered him to stop. Judge Robert Nalley pleaded guilty on Monday to depriving the defendant of his civil rights. The charge stems from an encounter between the judge and victim Delvon King in July of 2014, when King was appearing before Judge Nalley to face gun charges. King had a shocker anklet attached to him, which was supposed to be used in case of an emergency situation, or if King were to attempt to escape or hurt anyone.

John Kerry Hopes to Become US President if Hillary Clinton Arrested - Trump

US Secretary of State John Kerry believes he can run for US president if Hillary Clinton is forced to withdraw from the race or is jailed for breaking security procedures, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told a rally in Milford, New Hampshire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary should have been arrested already for her June 17, 2011 email instructing Jacob Sullivan to strip the classification markings from a document and send it non-secure. It doesn't matter by how much the document was classified or whether Sullivan actually did it or not; the issuing of the order itself by Hillary is a violation of Title 18, Section 793, and is a FELONY!

Why hasn't Hillary been arrested and charged for this crime?

German journalist claims the government tells its media what it can and cannot report on following outcry over Cologne sex attack news blackout

Germany Unveils "Cash Controls" Push: Ban Transactions Over €5,000, €500 Euro Note

On Tuesday we got the latest evidence that officials across the globe are preparing to institute a cashless “utopia” when Handelsblatt reported (in a piece called "The Death of Cash") that the Social Democrats - the junior partner in Angela Merkel’s coalition government - have proposed a €5,000 limit on cash transactions and the elimination of the €500 note. Berlin is using a familiar scapegoat to justify the plan: the need to fight "terrorists" and “foreign criminals."

Bundy discusses the murder of Rancher LaVoy Finicum. "I watched the assassination, there's no doubt it was a cold blooded assassination, and there's no doubt their intent was to kill everyone else," he said.
The two men also discuss the arrest and imprisonment of Bundy's two sons, Ryan and Ammon Bundy. "There's no justice, there's no mercy, all they wanted to do is make them criminals. They didn't do anything wrong," Bundy says of his two sons, who are currently in jail in Oregon.

Jewish West Bank settlers are as smug as white South Africans in 1980

The great South African black poet Dennis Brutus once told me an anecdote that summed up this smug view. Brutus, who passed on in 2009, was the man who encouraged me to go to southern Africa and see for myself. He had been imprisoned on Robben Island in the 1960s, alongside Nelson Mandela and other national leaders. “One day one of the white warders approached,” Brutus said in his mellifluous voice. “He said, ‘Brutus, you seem like an intelligent man — why do you fight against a system that you will never be able to change?’ He was a decent sort, so I answered, ‘And why do you think you will keep dominating us forever?’ He answered simply, ‘Because America will never stop supporting us.'”

The same self-confident attitude shines through in Weiss’s reports. The settlers are absolutely certain the Israeli government will never uproot them, and behind that is the unspoken conviction that the United States will never put significant pressure on Israel.

Cops Use Taser on Cleaning Woman After Mistaking Her for Burglar, Then Charge Her with Evading Arrest

Two Tennessee cops are being criticized for excessive force for tasering a 36-year-old middle-school cleaning woman after they confronted her at night in the otherwise empty school.

Juana Raymundo, originally from Guatemala, has been charged with evading arrest after she ran from the police who thought she was a burglar — despite seeing her cleaning supplies in the hallway — reports the Times Free Press.

According to the police report, Sgt. Jamie Heath and Officer Brian Desmond entered Ooltewah Middle School at 8:30pm earlier this month after noticing a door to the school was left open. Inspecting the school with their guns drawn, they spotted the cleaning supplies in the hallway before encountering an empty-handed Raymundo who appeared, “nervous and somewhat reserved.”

Study: Government really doesn’t need surveillance backdoors

They really want to scare Americans into believing government spying must be a fact of daily life. Right now, if law enforcement agents gathered evidence based on a private conversation recorded by a smart TV, they’d have a hard time using in in court. But if society accepts that all electronic devices connected to the Internet are fair game for warrantless listening because the government needs backdoors to look for terrorists, anything caught in the dragnet could become fair game.

Iowa was always a rigged game, and generally only 1 in 6 people eligible to vote bother to show up.

Contrary to the assertions of Team Clinton that the information was benign, a “nothing-burger” to cite her allies, implying that the overzealous Intelligence Community has classified information that doesn’t need protection, their contents are Top Secret with good reason. Hillary has opted for cries of “overclassification” as her last line of defense in EmailGate, notwithstanding that’s the choice of any officials in Washington, DC, who have broken secrecy laws and have no leg left to stand on.

That’s because a number of low-priced Obamacare plans will raise their rates in 2015, making those options less affordable. On top of that, penalties for failing to secure a health-insurance plan will rise steeply next year, which could take a big bite out of some families’ pocketbooks.

The national debt hit $18 trillion on Dec. 15, 2014. That’s a slightly stepped-up pace compared to the last few $1 trillion mileposts. It took about 14 months for the debt to climb from $17 trillion to $18 trillion, and about the same amount of time to go from $16 trillion to $17 trillion.

The bad news for Ted Cruz

The bad news for Ted Cruz: His Iowa win looks very similar to Mike Huckabee’s and Rick Santorum’s

Ted Cruz's Iowa victory was a surprise, after the final polls showed him trailing Donald Trump. But Cruz also followed a very familiar path to victory in the Hawkeye State: heavy reliance on strong conservatives and evangelical Christians -- and not on first-time caucus-goers.

The entrance polling shows Iowa's Republican electorate was rich with both groups, with more than 6 in 10 identifying as evangelical Christians (64 percent) and 4 in 10 saying their political views are "very conservative."

More than three-quarters of Cruz's supporters identified as evangelical Christians, compared with fewer than 6 in 10 of Marco Rubio and Donald Trump supporters.

A crew of WZO members will scan the results, confirm the cases that actually show real anti-Semitism, and respond with direct replies or contact authorities in the offending party’s country.

WZO emphasizes the fact that the app will be monitored and supervised, so that its use will be proper, and not aimed at shaming individuals or groups without proper evidence.

John Cleese: Political Correctness Will Lead To An Orwellian Nightmare

John Cleese says political correctness has gone too far, especially on America's college campuses, where he will no longer go to perform. As BigThink reports, the very essence of his trade — comedy — is criticism and that not infrequently means hurt feelings. But protecting everyone from negative emotion all the time is not only impractical (one can't control the feelings of another), but also improper in a free society.

Cleese, having worked with psychiatrist Robin Skynner, says there may even be something more sinister behind the insistence to be always be politically correct.

"If you start to say we mustn't, we mustn't criticize or offend them then humor is gone. With humor goes a sense of proportion. And then as far as I'm concerned you're living in 1984."

Why Clinton's Apparent Iowa Win Feels More Like a Loss

***
there are three reasons why this apparent victory for Clinton feels more like a loss.
One, there's already controversy, with the Sanders camp alleging that due to Iowa Democratic Party mismanagement, reports were late coming in from about 90 precincts
***
Two, winning essentially by one vote (err, five state delegate equivalents) instead of 1 percentage point, denied Clinton the opportunity to use ANY win as momentum heading into New Hampshire, where Sanders enjoys a sizable lead

Three, if you don't want to take our word for it, here's the attitude inside Clinton Land. "Clinton advisers … said they did not know if a significant staff shakeup was at hand, but they said that the Clintons were disappointed with Monday night's result and wanted to ensure that her organization, political messaging and communications strategy were in better shape for the contests to come,"

Feds tell Texas ranchers the government owns their land despite owners having deeds, paying property taxes on the land

A group of Texas ranchers are furious after representatives from the federal Bureau of Land Management made claims that their land doesn’t actually belong to the ranchers, but rather it belonged to the federal government. The federal officials claim that despite each rancher having a deed for their property and having paid property taxes on the land each year, the land should never have been sold, as it is actually federal land. However, at least one rancher, Ken Aderholt, isn’t giving up his property without a fight. Aderholt notes that his family has lived and raised cattle on the land for the past 70 years, even building a home on the property that the government now claims it owns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under the Constitution, the Federal Government is only allowed to own the land under Federal Buildings, and Federal infrastructure such as harbors, airports, and military bases. The Founding Fathers included that Enclave Clause to prevent the government from "solving" its self-made economic problems by plundering the property of the people.

For several Republicans, New Hampshire on February 9 will be the make or break contest of the 2016 primary.

Jeb Bush didn't exactly name names when he made his prediction for which of his fellow candidates would finish in the top three in Iowa, but it was clear who he was talking about.

"It's all about him and insulting his way to the presidency is the organizing principle," Bush said of Donald Trump. "The two other candidates that are likely to emerge in Iowa are two people that are backbenchers who have never done anything of consequence in their lives," he added, seemingly of Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.

“I think we’re going to be proclaiming victory,” he said, sounding subdued for once. “I hope.”

As for Hillary, did she really screech that she “stands in the long line of American reformers” or that she would defend women’s rights, as her misogynist husband stood behind her, slack-jawed, looking as ancient as Bob Dole?

Dear Mr Putin, It is customary to say I hope this finds you in good heath when we address a Head of State in an open letter. But America and its NATO partners are the sick ones. We are in terrible economic, social and political health. Our press and our political leaders lie to us. They rob us and demand we believe their lies. Thirty years ago a man whose family had farmed their land for generations was told by the federal government that they needed his farm where he had been growing onions. Their land was seized for pennies on the dollar. Today a giant agricultural corporation is raising onions which was the same crop he and his family had been raising.

Last year police seized more assets from American citizens than did all the burglars, muggers and armed robbers. And our police killed more innocent civilians than did terrorists and crazed mass shooters.

Total U.S. Debt Surpasses $19 Trillion; Rises $8.4 Trillion Under President Obama

Two months ago, when we calculated that the US would need a new "debt ceiling" of $19.6 trillion to last until after Obama's tenure, we may have been too optimistic: since the increase in the hard debt limit of $18.15 trillion which was raised at the end of October, the US appears to be growing its debt at a far faster pace than we had originally expected, and according to the latest public debt data, as of the last day of January, total US debt just hit 19,012,827,698,417.93.

This means that if the nominal US GDP as of December 31 which was $18.12 trillion grows at the 1.2% rate expected by the Atlanta Fed, total debt to GDP is now on pace to hit 105% at the next GDP tabulation, and rising fast from there.

It also means that since his inauguration in January 2009, the US debt has now risen by a whopping 78.9%, or $8.4 trillion. It was $10.6 trillion when Obama came into office.

But to the contrary, we should spurn what the establishment would have us celebrate. Politics operates according to principles that would horrify us if we observed them in our private lives, and that would get us arrested if we tried to live by them. The state can steal and call it taxation, kidnap and call it conscription, kill and call it war.

FLASHBACK 2013 - NSA feeds raw intelligence data to Israel

A secret memo provided by former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden to the British Guardian newspaper reveals that the US spy agency is funneling raw intelligence data, including information from intercepted communications of US citizens, to Israeli intelligence.

“The National Security Agency routinely shares raw intelligence with Israel without first sifting it to remove information about US citizens,” the Guardian article by Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Ewen MacAskill reports.

The undated five-page memo records an agreement reached between the NSA and its Israeli counterpart, the ISNU (Israeli Sigint National Unit), in March 2009, during the first months of the Obama administration.

The material contained eight notebooks worth of “code words, war strategy, the names of covert officers and other sensitive information. In addition, they outlined deliberative discussions with the National Security Council and President Obama.” The Justice Department said if this information were disclosed to the wrong people, it would cause “exceptionally grave damage.”

IS CONGRESS DECLARING WAR ON ISIS... OR ON YOU (& YOUR CASH)?

Passage of Senator Mitch McConnell’s authorization for war against ISIS will not only lead to perpetual US wars across the globe, it will also endanger our civil and economic liberties. The measure allows the president to place troops anywhere he determines ISIS is operating. Therefore, it could be used to justify using military force against United States citizens on US territory. It may even be used to justify imposing martial law in America.

Why Hillary’s EmailGate Matters

Every few days, another bombshell appears in the media illustrating just how poorly Hillary Clinton, during her tenure as our nation’s foreign policy boss, handled communications security. By now, we have a complex portrait of someone whose mishandling of our nation’s secrets, by herself and her staff, beggars belief for anyone versed in such matters. EmailGate isn’t going away, no matter how much Ms. Clinton’s supporters want it to.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Over the last few days, whenever I try to comment about the question of Hillary spying to any media that uses Facebook for comments, the comment is blocked and the error message simply says "Oops!"

Is Facebook trying to protect Hillary from an espionage charge?

Please copy the below and comment it into every story you see about the emails!

 

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

NYPD TRIPLES THE STRENGTH OF THEIR PEPPER SPRAY BECAUSE THE OLD STUFF DIDN’T HURT ENOUGH

Only in the twisted minds of NYPD officials would “more powerful weapons” be a solution to prevent their officers from killing people. Sadly, this is no joke. The NYPD recently announced that they are planning to stock more powerful and potent pepper spray, and they actually claim that this would be intended to prevent police from shooting people. The potency that has been used by the NYPD and other departments previously is already highly dangerous with a concentration of just .21% capsaicinoids. The new spray will be concentrated at .67% which will undoubtedly be more dangerous and far more painful. The NYPD has already begun rolling out the new concentration and has equipped over 19,000 officers with the new mixture.

Texas Land Boss George P. Bush Steals Private Property Through Bribes And Intimidation

After repeated refusals and lawsuits from the owners to give up their land, the legislature passed a law to allow Patterson to either repair or close the pass. This was still not enough for the State because according to law, the State cannot inflict eminent domain on property owners, it’s only enforceable by County where the land is located. The reasoning the State is giving for the closure of this vital pass is because of Mother Earth’s natural erosion. The only way for the County to agree to steal the land and shut down the economy as well as the Freedoms for the people who access it is the root of all evil, and that is Money.

Destroyed in broad daylight by ‘False Flaggers’

In 2014 I worked in Seattle in the aerospace industry and made some angry and inflammatory statements to a co-worker about the 9/11 attacks and ‘False Flag’ operations
occurring worldwide.

About a month later I caught someone taking a picture of the rental car I was driving. This was the first time I was aware of the surveillance team following me and literally that day it turned into a ‘Cointelpro’ styled program using advanced technologies(DEW’s)the type of which are in the militaries’ arsenal specifically the Navy and Airforce (this is documented) the type which are developed by very high level players in the defense industry.

The West Is Reduced To Looting Itself — Paul Craig Roberts

I, Michael Hudson, John Perkins, and a few others have reported the multi-pronged looting of peoples by Western economic institutions, principally the big New York Banks with the aid of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Third World countries were and are looted by being inticed into development plans for electrification or some such purpose. The gullible and trusting governments are told that they can make their countries rich by taking out foreign loans to implement a Western-presented development plan, with the result being sufficient tax revenues from economic development to service the foreign loan.

The State Department will not release damning emails until after New Hampshire primary!

A judge had ordered the department to release all of the emails by the end of January, but attorneys for the department said this week that they would miss the deadline, and requested another month.

That means the last of Clinton’s emails will not be released until the end of February — after the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary — and just before Super Tuesday, when voters in 11 states will cast ballots.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary's online minions are already out there saying that nobody should even consider the email scandal when voting today, because the emails are being kept hidden, but I think this will backfire. To voters, this reeks of political cover-up, and we are justified imagining the very worst case in those remaining emails!

Tens of Millions Wasted on "Ghost" Schools, and That’s Just the Tip of the Iceberg

"The lack of security has made it almost impossible for many U.S. and even some Afghan officials to get out and manage and inspect US-funded reconstruction projects," he says. The inability to adequately inspect and manage reconstruction efforts has led to extreme waste, including one case where the Afghan government found that millions of dollars had disappeared as Afghanistan paid for "nonexistent 'ghost' schools, 'ghost' teachers, and 'ghost' students."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think you will agree that money would have been better spent on schools, teachers, and fixing the water systems inside the US, but the government's attitude seems to be better billions wasted in a war zone than a single penny spent on the taxpayers!

"We were disappointed to learn that on February 1st, Canal+, as part of a special investigation, will air the documentary "The mask of the revolution", which gives the viewer a false impression of the situation in Ukraine", states the message.

As reported by Zero Hedge, retired U.S. Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson said in a recent interview that the main "purpose" today of American foreign policy "is to support the complex that we have created in the national security state that is fueled, funded and powered by interminable war."

Yes, that classic "military-industrial complex" that President Dwight D. Eisenhower, one of our finest and most successful Army generals, warned Americans about during his final State of the Union Address on Jan. 17, 1961.

Why Is Obama Flooding Small Towns In The Most Conservative Parts Of America With Refugees?

Why are small towns in conservative states being specifically targeted for refugee resettlement? Of course the Obama administration will never publicly admit that this is happening, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out what is going on. Just look at the uproar that refugee resettlement is now causing in small communities in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Kansas. The Obama administration has deemed large cities such as Washington D.C. to be “too expensive” for the refugees, and so large numbers of them are being dispersed throughout smaller communities all over the nation. If you drop a few hundred refugees into a major city of several million people, it isn’t going to make much of a difference. But if you drop a few hundred refugees into a small town that has only a few thousand people living there, you can start to fundamentally alter the character of the whole area.
