What Hackers Just Leaked on Twitter Will Have the Entire Town of Ferguson, Missouri, on Edge

According to what hackers say is an internal security document by the private security firm ADM and leaked last night, they claim the full Grand Jury report will be released Monday, November 10th, at 2pm local time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They just told us what the decision will be.

Israel to confiscate 3,200 acres of Palestinian land near Jerusalem

Israeli authorities have delivered orders to the village of Beit Iksa north of Jerusalem ordering the confiscation of 12,852 dunums (3,176 acres) of Palestinian land, locals said on Saturday.

Locals told Ma’an that soldiers deployed at the military checkpoint at the entrance to the village delivered confiscation orders signed by the Israeli military commander in the West Bank Nitzan Alon that gave them until Dec. 31, 2017 to remain on their land.

Villagers said that soldiers informed them that an official from the Israeli military liaison would arrive on Monday to specify which lands would be confiscated, adding that the lands confiscated would be used for “military purposes.”

l90 Pounds Of Cocaine Found On Cargo Ship Owned By Anti-Drug Senator’s Family

A cargo ship connected to Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell was recently stopped and searched before departing from Colombia. During the search, Colombian Coast Guard agents seized roughly 90 pounds of cocaine.

The drugs were found on the Ping May, which is a vessel operated by the Foremost Maritime Corporation, a company owned by Mitch McConnell’s in-laws, the Chao family. This connection is not only relevant because of the family connection, but also because the Chao family has often made large donations to McConnell’s campaigns.

In fact, the Chao family has been funding McConnell since the late 1980s. Years later, in 1993, McConnell married Elaine Chao and secured the Chao family as one of his primary sources for investments.

A gift worth somewhere between 5 and 25 million dollars from the Chao Family made McConnel one of the richest senators in the country in 2008.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would almost bet real money that McConnell has the financial and political clout to make this "go away", before any serious charges are filed.

But I have to tell you: I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning!!

And I am also nearly willing to bet you that no reporter in the alleged corporate media will have the "male attributes" to question him about this in public.

Haim Saban Raises $34M to Support Israeli Defense Forces

A tearful Saban told the crowd of more than 1,200 attendees that he discouraged anonymous donations this year because it was important for supporters to "stand with Israel publicly, vocally and very loudly."

Notable donations made at the event included $10 million from Larry Ellison, co-founder and chairman of Oracle; $5 million from top Republican fundraisers Sheldon and Miriam Adelson (who received a standing ovation from the liberal Westside crowd); $5.2 million from brothers Maurice and Paul Marciano of Guess Jeans; $3.6 million from Saban and wife Cheryl; $2 million from Steve Tisch, chairman and executive vp of the New York Giants; $1 million from Leo David, founder of the Western Region of the FIDF; and $1.6 million from The Helmsley Charitable Trust. In addition, first-time attendees and donors Michael and Susan Dell gave $1.8 million to fundIMPACT! educational scholarship programs.


Our sincere thanks to everyone who donated.

Why was Kobi Alexander Allowed to Flee?

The case of the Israeli criminal Kobi Alexander is like the proverbial "tip of the iceberg." While Alexander's crimes, through which he became immensely wealthy, are now evident, they are but a very small piece of a much larger Zionist criminal network – connected to the 9/11 terror attacks – which remains hidden beneath the surface.

Alexander, former head of the Israel-based Comverse Technology, was, until his crimes were discovered, one of the highest paid executives in the United States.

In the year 2000, for example, he reportedly earned some $102.5 million, with $93 million coming from the "exercise of options." We now know that most of Alexander's money was made through the fraudulent "exercise of options."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The prosecutor in New York who let Kobi slip away, then later arranged a cash-for-freedom deal, was Loretta Lynch, the presumptive incoming Attorney General!

Starbucks joins Monsanto and others to sue Vermont to block GMO labelling law

Starbucks doesn't think you have the right to know what's in your coffee. So it's teamed up with Monsanto to sue the small U.S. state of Vermont to stop you from finding out.

Hiding behind the shadowy "Grocery Manufacturers Association", Starbucks is supporting a lawsuit that's aiming to block a landmark law that requires genetically-modified ingredients be labeled. Amazingly, it claims that the law is an assault on corporations' right to free speech. Even a local Vermont company, Green Mountain Coffee, has joined in.

Death Blow: Supreme Court To Rule On Affordable Care Act: “Would Utterly Devastate Obamacare”

Should the Supreme Court rule against federal Obamacare subsidies the Affordable Care Act would fall apart almost instantly, as five million low-income Americans would see their health premiums jump nearly $3000 per year, making it too costly for just about everyone who depends on the subsidies.

Obamacare, it seems, is now under serious threat of being completely destroyed.

Armored Vehicles and Military Choppers Spotted Near Ferguson Prior to Grand Jury Decision

Is Ferguson on the verge of civil unrest followed by martial law? Recent photos and videos from the area paint an ominous picture.

Ferguson, MO — The Grand Jury decision is expected any minute now out of Ferguson in regards to officer Darren Wilson and the killing of Micheal Brown.

It is highly likely that Wilson will not be indicted which could lead to massive unrest in the area.

Looting and violent rioting will only serve to undo the positive attention which Ferguson protesters have received over the past few months. That being said, there will undoubtedly be some people who use this Grand Jury decision as a means to violate the rights of others, both police and citizens.

However, as we have seen before, even when the protest is not-violent, the police frequently are.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF violence comes to Ferguson, you can almost bet real money that at least some of it will have been manipulated from the outside.

The US government would like nothing better than to squelch a relatively small protest with extreme measures, to show the American people that they can, and will, use excessive force whenever possible, to trample the rights of even peaceful protesters.

To the people of Ferguson, I would counsel patience, complete non-violence in your protests, and the ubiquitous presence of cameras to record EVERYTHING that happened.

Unfortunately, in the USA in the 21st century, the real terrorists ARE members of this government, for whom the Constitution and Bill of Rights have absolutely no meaning, when it comes to We the People.

Please remember: that obnoxious kid advocating the use of anything illegal, or any violence whatsoever, is probably DHS, CIA, NSA, or FBI, attempting to make you do something you know in your heart isn't right.

FLASHBACK 2012 - CNBC Exec’s Children Murdered, 1 Day After CNBC Reports $43 Trillion Bankster Lawsuit

This week financial news organization CNBC gave some mainstream attention to the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History, in which “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners are being accused of laundering of 43 trillion dollars worth of ill gotten gains. The lawsuit is said to involve officials located in the highest offices of government and the financial sector.

Since this information was surprisingly revealed by the mainstream news organization there has been a very suspicious and deadly fallout at the CNBC headquarters. Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and CNBC senior vice president Kevin Krim received news that his children were killed under very suspicious circumstances. It seems that the murder happened first and then the page was removed later.

Supreme Court Grants Cert. to Hear Challenge to IRS's Expansion of Affordable Care Act Tax Credit

Friday the Supreme Court granted certiorari in King v. Burwell, one of four pending challenges to the IRS rule authorizing tax credits and cost-sharing subsidies for the purchase of health insurance in federally established exchanges. ...

With this grant, the Court has the opportunity to reaffirm the principle that the law is what Congress enacts, not what the administration or others wish Congress had enacted with the benefit of hindsight. Granting tax credits to those who need help purchasing health insurance may be a good idea, and may have bipartisan support, but the IRS lacks the authority to authorize such tax credits where Congress failed to do so. The PPACA only authorizes tax credits for the purchase of insurance on exchanges “established by the State.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have already lost control of the money to the private bankers. What happens when we lose control of the law to them as well?

Barrie Zwicker - Canada’s false flag terror: fingerprints of U.S. involvement

THE “TERRORIST” EVENTS of Wednesday October 22nd in Ottawa and two days earlier in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu bear all the hallmarks of a coordinated cross-border one-two punch false flag operation.

The first, the left jab hit-and-run killing of a Canadian soldier, would be the psychological softening up for the follow-up right cross, the killing of another Canadian soldier in Ottawa. Together they dazed the public to an extent that even the ostentatiously-iconic murder at the National War Memorial alone might not have achieved.

The context was within the intensification of the so-called “global war on terror” and in concert with the pro-military Stephen Harper government’s deployment of warplanes supposedly fighting “the terrorists” of the suddenly-emerging “Islamic State.” The first bombing sorties of Canadian F-18s took place hours after the violent acts of supposed “homegrown” and “self-radicalized” supporters of “Islamic jihad.”

Can't We All Just Trust Our Governments?

The key takeaway here is this: "Money only has value because we trust it, and this trust is backstopped by our trust in the government of issue."

But what if government itself, via regulatory democracy, is actually intent on misleading investors? In fact, the above sounds reasonable so long as one does not grasp the central issue being avoided – the ability of certain individuals to print what we call "monopoly fiat money."

This book and its review seem to provide us with an apologia for elite – technocratic – management to retain and expand "trust." There is apparently an endless supply of authors ready to attempt the trick of insisting on the necessity of technocracy at the expense of the Invisible Hand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The money and political interests are now well aware that in the age of the internet, their lies, frauds, and deceptions stand exposed. While those money and political interests are quick to blame and attack the independent media, the fact is it is their own actions which have undermined public trust in those institutions, but since changing their behavior is not something they are willing to do, we can expect a campaign of propaganda to convince us that it is somehow our patriotic duty to trust the bankers and politicians no matter how many times we catch them in said lies, frauds, and deception.

Voters urge GOP to stamp out illegal alien election fraud, poll shows

While the usual post-elections analysts explain away the anger felt by many American voters, those casting their ballots for GOP candidate may have done so in the hopes of putting an end to what they discerned as a lawlessness and deceitfulness in the current White House, according to a report on Thursday by a top watchdog group that investigates and exposes government corruption and out-and-out criminal acts by political leaders and their subordinates. Despite being told that voter fraud is rare by the people who benefit from illegal voting and their media sycophants, Americans believe that the security of U.S. elections is a necessity.

JP Morgan Chase Whistleblower Reveals Bank and Fed Cover-Up of Fraud

Fleischmann was terminated from the company in the midst of a round of lay-offs in 2008. An investigator from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission contacted her in 2012, regarding her knowledge of the events that occurred during her time at JP Morgan Chase. While the investigators were interested in certain parts of her story, it was not until 2013 that she was able to relay her full knowledge. This included “the edict against e-mails, the sabotaging of the diligence process, the bullying, the written warnings that were ignored, all of it.”

However, rather than taking JP Morgan Chase to court, Rolling Stone noted that the government “decided to help Chase bury the evidence,” which began when a press conference to announce the civil-fraud charges against the bank, scheduled by Attorney General Eric Holder for September 24, 2013, was “suddenly canceled, and no complaint was filed.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More proof that the Federal Government, and the federal Reserve, work for the money-junkies, not for the people.

Frankenstein foods slip into M&S: Anger as store puts GM food on shelves despite being opposed to engineered products

Marks & Spencer has come under fire for abandoning its policy of selling only GM-free food.

The store is selling six products containing genetically-modified soya or corn despite having long presented itself as being opposed to such engineered products.

The six are teriyaki, ginger and hibachi sauces from the American TonTon brand, and three flavours of Moravian Cookie – sugar, chocolate, and cranberry and orange.

Other stores are also selling an increasing number of imported American foods from brands including Reese, Hershey and Oreo that contain GM ingredients.

The move has been condemned by critics of the technology who say it is evidence of the insidious way so-called Frankenstein foods are being introduced.

Immigration checkpoints catching more drugs than people

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

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

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

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

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

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

Eleventh Circuit Upholds Florida’s Patient Privacy Law

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

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

Newly discovered fossil could prove a problem for creationists

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

Surprise: The Drug War Isn’t About Drugs

On the morning of November 6 the US Federal Bureau of Investigation trumpeted its takedown of the Silk Road 2.0 website and the arrest of alleged operator Blake Benthall.

In so doing the FBI demonstrated, once again, that the War on Drugs has nothing to do with anything its propagandists claim it’s about. If drug criminalization is a public safety issue — about fighting violent crime and gangs, or preventing overdoses and poisoning — shutting down Silk Road is one of the dumbest things the feds can do.

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

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

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

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

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

Or, maybe something else is going on.

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

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

U.S. Military Superiority Is Rapidly Falling Behind

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

‘A mass sterilization exercise’: Kenyan doctors find anti-fertility agent in UN tetanus vaccine

Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government.

According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine.

Turkish leaders have said protecting Islamic sites in the Holy Land is a sacred mission for them, with President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an bluntly warning any attack against the 8th-century al-Aqsa Mosque is no different than an attack on the Kaaba in the holy city of Mecca.

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

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

World ominously close to nuclear war – Noam Chomsky to RT

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

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

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

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

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

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

The initial reaction from some was skeptical.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rouble crashes as Russian economy teeters on brink of recession

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Electoral Nihilism

Elections are revealing for what they hide, in the case of the US midterms just completed: a bludgeoning of American political consciousness so as to reduce understanding to such superficial outcries as gridlock in government, ego-driven politicians, a failure to do the nation’s business, etc. Little if any word on the SUBSTANCE of policy-making: war, intervention, drone assassination, massive surveillance, increasing disparities of wealth, and concentration in industry, banking, media ownership, once more etc.

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has been crying wolf (or Nuclear Duck) about an imminent Iranian nuclear bomb since the 1980s, and like the constant wagging of Hitler and the Nazis, we are all pretty much sick and tired of it all.

Priest bolting from parish raises questions

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

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

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

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

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

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

President Flim-Flam Leads Dems to Midterm Massacre

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

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

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

Organize. Grab a pitchfork. Do something!
