The only protection the Constitution has from government corruption or perversion, is the people demanding that the government adhere to the principles of the constitution or face the consequences of armed revolution." -- Ron Ewart

Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) Own Data Shows Links Between Vaccines and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

The CDC’s own research has found that the long denied vaccine-SIDS link is real.

If you believe the official pronouncements of top governmental health agencies like the CDC and FDA, all the vaccines in the present day schedule are a priori safe and effective.

Not only are you told that they can’t harm you, but that not taking them can kill you.

Parents are under even more pressure. They are told that refraining from vaccinating their infants or children will greatly increase their risk of dying or being disabled. Worse, they are increasingly labeled as ‘crazy’ and ‘irresponsible’ anti-vaccine zealots who are putting the lives of others in danger.

But what happens when the actual evidence from the scientific and clinical literature produced by these very agencies contradicts their own vaccine policies?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some of these deaths are covered up by accusing the parents pf shaken baby syndrome!

Unknown 'device' lands on White House grounds; no danger seen

The US Secret Service has recovered a "device" on the White House grounds, which according to reports was a small drone, but there was no immediate danger from the incident, the White House said.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters traveling with President Barack Obama in India on Monday that the Secret Service — the agency that protects Obama and his family, and secures the White House grounds — is investigating.

Earnest described the object as a "device" but said he did not know what it was.

Or worse, by a group of governments that are trying very hard to conceal the purpose of some especially nefarious agreement that they’ve just colluded on.

Well, as luck would have it, that’s just what it is. The “Adequacy of Loss-Absorbing Capacity of Global Systemically Important Banks in Resolution” agreement is the title of a decision that was reached by the G20 countries, to approve an across-the-board Cyprus-style bail-in.

Second FOX News Suicide in Two Months: Employee Shoots Himself in Front of NYC Head Office

Phillip Perea was a 41-year-old employee for FOX News local affiliate in Austin, Texas, who was on a mission to expose the ills and hypocrisy of his former employer.

The irony here, is that this whole debacle originated from for FOX News accusing one of its own for being ‘sensational’. Bizarre, to say the least. Stranger however, might be the fact that Geraldo Rivera was tweeting rumors of “suicide notes” immediately after the event, and also that no photos or images of Perea were left on his Facebook page or in his photo albums before his death – only audio tracks remain online of his voice – making him a ghost of sorts.

U.S., Europe threaten new sanctions against Moscow

U.S. and European leaders threatened new sanctions against Moscow after a missile attack blamed on pro-Russian separatists killed 30 civilians in the eastern Ukrainian city of Mariupol, the latest escalation in violence that has brought Kiev’s fight with rebels back toward full-scale war.

Russia reacted with defiance, blaming Kiev and its Western backers for the surge in fighting, but it also called for urgent talks on implementing a September cease-fire. Separatists backed off earlier threats of a broad offensive on Mariupol and other targets, but shelling along the contact line between the two sides was extremely heavy over the weekend, Ukrainian military officials said.

MOTHER JONES CLIMATE BEX - Attention GOP Presidential Candidates: Winter Does Not Disprove Global Warming

Pathetic carbonazi propaganda redacted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back on March 20, 2000, the Carbonazis were proclaiming that "Snowfalls are now a thing of the past." (UK Independent banner headline).

The fact is that human influence in climate is miniscule compared to solar output, which is at a 100-year low. But everyone who signed onto the hoax of human-caused global warming is trying to salvage their reputations in the face of a new Maunder Minimum and with it, a new "Little Ice age."

The long term trend for the last 18 years has been ever more severe winters. All the "adjusted" data from temperature sensors located in air conditioning outflows and next to trash incinerators cannot offset what the people can experience with their own eyes and skin.

It is time for Mother Jones to admit that they, like so many other corporate media outlets, were victims of a hoax, and stop trying to raise on a busted flush, while they still have some credibility left!

Eight of those injured are in serious condition. Three are in resuscitation, two are in intensive care, and one more is being operated on. Three others have inhaled fumes, sources at Albacete hospital told Cadena SER radio network.

According to abc.es, a Greek pilot executed a wrong maneuver during takeoff resulting in the jet ditching, an explosion and a massive fire. Two French planes overhead during the incident had to land at San Javier base in Murcia, 140 kilometers away.

Benzer pleads guilty in massive Las Vegas Valley HOA scheme

Benzer, who once owned Silver Lining construction, and 10 others were indicted in the scheme in January 2013, and several months later Benzer was indicted again on charges of evading $1.2 million in personal and company taxes. The charges were related to more than $7 million Benzer and his company obtained from a fraudulent contract with the Vistana condominium development to do construction defect work.

Five of the 10 defendants charged in the first indictment with Benzer, including attorney Barry Levinson, previously pleaded guilty and are waiting to be sentenced.

The sweeping investigation that led to the indictments, spearheaded by the Justice Department’s Fraud Section in Washington, is thought to be the largest public corruption case federal authorities have brought in Southern Nevada. The FBI, Las Vegas police and IRS all played key roles in the long-running investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am bumping this story back to the top because this is very important.

Organized crime is targeting Homeowner's Associations across America. Complicit property managers will purchase "improvements" from Mafia-owned businesses which provide shoddy products and services at hugely inflated prices which the homeowners have no choice but to pay!

Super Bowl for the Rich: Upper-Class 91, Middle-Class 9

Just 10 percent of Americans own 91 percent of the nation’s stocks and mutual funds, according to economist Edward Wolff (Table 7). Most of the remainder is held by a “middle class” that is steadily losing ground. The bottom 60 percent is almost entirely shut out (Table 2).

Stock owners, some of whom made billions of dollars last year, can defer their income taxes indefinitely, pay a reduced capital gains tax when they decide to cash in, or pass on the capital gains tax-free to their heirs.

Making money is all a game to the super-rich — redistribution toward the top, trickle-down delusions, tax avoidance, and even, for some of them, dabbling in criminal activities. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) once said, “It’s really American to avoid paying taxes, legally…It’s a game we play…I see nothing wrong with playing the game because we set it up to be a game.”

This Week’s East Coast Blizzard Could Be the Biggest on Record

The National Weather Service (NWS) in New York City is calling the potential for epic snowfall “historic,” while the Boston office says the incoming storm is a “textbook case for a major winter storm/blizzard.” Three-day snow totals could reach 24–36 inches in each city—good enough to rival the biggest Northeast snowstorms on record.

'Extreme' blizzard bears down on US east coast with record snowfall possible

Light snow flurries began to swirl early on Monday morning ahead of what the New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio, has warned could be a “potentially historic” snowstorm.

The National Weather Service has issued blizzard warnings along the US east coast from central New Jersey to the Canadian border, effective through Tuesday. The storm is expected to strike just before the evening commute on Monday and intensify overnight. New Yorkers are being told to brace for powerful winds that could topple power lines and tree limbs, and extremely low visibility. The blizzard could dump two to three feet of snow from northern New Jersey to Connecticut

Will Winter Storm Juno Be a Historic Blizzard?

Millions in the Northeast are stocking up and hunkering down for Winter Storm Juno, a potentially crippling blizzard. But before Juno's parent low pressure system even reached the Atlantic coast, many began wondering aloud: Will Winter Storm Juno be historic?

"Historic" is not a precisely defined term, but generally meteorologists reserve it for weather events of exceptional strength or magnitude. A hallmark of such events is their ability to break all-time records. For instance, Winter Storm Nemo broke the all-time 24-hour snowfall record for the entire state of Connecticut when it dumped 36 inches of snow near Ansonia on Feb. 8-9, 2013.

U.S. counterterrorism operations ongoing in Yemen

President Barack Obama defended his counterterrorism strategy in tumultuous Yemen Sunday, saying efforts to root out a dangerous al-Qaida affiliate there would not be affected by the political vacuum in the country.

The U.S. campaign against al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula is heavily dependent on using drone strikes to take out terror targets. Obama has held up that approach as a model for the military mission against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, which relies on airstrikes instead of U.S. ground troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...political vacuum", my ASTROLABE!!!

Mr. President, the Houthi rebels have flipping taken over the country, and the President and Cabinet have resigned (if not fled, outright, from the country.)

IF your strategy had worked, sir, the rebels would not have taken over the country, period, end of discussion.

In the immortal words of my late maternal grandmother, "The horse is already out of the barn."

You policy for Yemen can only be described as another "epic fail" in foreign policy for you.

And I had to appreciate the delicious, bitter irony of timing here: this happened precisely on the day you made the SOTU speech.

Doing the same thing (like drone strikes) over and over again, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome is a classic psychological definition of insanity.

Sir, get a grip, get a clue, and would someone in this guy's inner circle please sit this man down, and have a chat about "reality" not being a fabrication of his imagination, but very, very real facts on the ground which, although unpleasant, are completely true.

The American public would be very grateful for that, if any of you have the "male attributes" to dare to do so.

Mariupol-Donetsk-Frunza! Can Poroshenko Escape Crimes Against Humanity Trial?

A little over a week ago Petro Poroshenko ordered an all out assault on Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. Faced with massive losses during the first few days the Poroshenko regime has resorted unsuccessfully to get both republic’s listed as terrorist organizations by the EU and United Nations.

It started with the Volonavaha bus attack after which the bus driver states in an interview with theKorrespondent that a mine exploded and killed his passengers in Ukrainian controlled territory. Images from the scene taken by the Ukrainian army shows a soldier carrying what appears to be a claymore mine. Claymore mines are directional explosives that are set off remotely or by a trip wire.

Kiev is engaging in a game of escalating crimes against humanity. Each attack on civilian populations has been followed by an all out media blitz trying to place blame on the fledgling republics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because Ukraine is aligned with the US, which has been committing war crimes against humanity with impunity for so many years, I think Poroshenko believes that he will never be tried or convicted for these crimes.

Please remember: the images of buildings burning in eastern Ukraine I put up yesterday were those of housing complexes, not military sites.

Negative Interest: A ticking time bomb

Many Americans have been predicting this for well over a decade, but it appears the big axe is finally set to swing at America. Amidst a spate of global currency moves causing seismic shifts in global assets, military conflicts are fast enveloping the planet. An increasingly dysfunctional US government struggles over war with Iran, which incidentally just dumped the dollar, in a domestic environment that is steeped in racism, police brutality and irrational fear without end. Our water supply is being swiftly contaminated, all over the country, by fracking. And above all, corruption and lies are being exposed on the internet at breakneck speed, making it painfully obvious, to even the most political clueless, that something terribly wrong is about to happen.

Greece elections: Merkel has lost, hope has won

In the aftermath of Greece’s seismic election, I assumed the eurocrat elite would follow the diktat, “if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.” So, I cranked up the Twitter machine and within 5 seconds, I encountered this ‘gem’ from our old friend Carl Bildt. Bildt was the the Swedish Foreign Minster – and one of America’s favourite European poodles – until his own electorate voted him out last year.

Bildt’s Tweet is important because it reveals a mindset among the elite. They extol the benefits of democracy for others, while pouring scorn on the results, if they fail to suit their own agendas. An example was when they forced Ireland to vote again (twice) after initial rejections of EU treaties. Or when they speak of bringing free elections to the Middle East while refusing to deal with Palestine’s elected government, or even recognise the state’s existence.

Historic Victory for SYRIZA Greece

The leader of the left-wing SYRIZA Party, Alexis Tsipras, claimed a jubilant victory in Athens, Greece, on Sunday. SYRIZA took 36.5 percent of the electorate compared with the 27.7 percent for Antonis Samaras of the New Democracy Party. This is according to official election data. The far-right Golden Dawn placed third at at 6.3 percent, followed by To Potami garnering 5.9 percent of the vote party. To Potami Party is considered a potential ally of SYRIZA.

Whether it is a clear majority is yet unclear at the time of the interview. But one thing is clear: the Greek people have won a battle of reversing austerity economic policies championed by the New Democracy conservative party.

Iceland's Stabilized Economy Is A Surprising Success Story

Faced with the possibility of financial failure, Iceland had to think on its feet. Instead of bailing out banks USA-style, the country forgave mortgage debt for the population – and completely started over from square one.

A country with a small population of roughly 320,000 citizens, Iceland‘s entire banking structure “systemically failed” in the early days of the 2008 recession. Despite the fact that Iceland is still on the road to recovery, the country ranks high as a politically and economically stable nation. Their success over the last few years has been largely under-reported, and the story behind it is quite fascinating.

Greek leftist party Syriza sweeps to power

Greek voters handed power to a radical leftist party in national elections on Sunday, a popular rebellion against the bitter economic medicine Greece has swallowed for five years and a rebuke of the fellow European countries that prescribed it.

As 2016 race begins, GOP faces its Palin problem

As a chance to evaluate possible 2016 Republican presidential candidates, the Freedom Summit here in Des Moines was a solid success. Several potential candidates — Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, and a few others — left the 10-hour political marathon with their prospects undeniably enhanced.

All that was good news for Republicans. But at the same time, more than a few GOP loyalists came away shaking their heads at the performance of a party star, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, whose long, rambling, and at times barely coherent speech left some wondering what role she should play in Republican politics as the 2016 race begins in earnest.

The New Ukraine Is Run by Rogues, Sexpots, Warlords, Lunatics and Oligarchs

On the surface, today’s Ukraine is much more favorably disposed toward everything Western and everything American because of the exciting wind of transformations that swept through the Ukrainian political landscape last year. Its political culture looks modern, attractive, refined and European. For example, at the end of last year a new law was passed that allowed former citizens of other countries to participate in Ukrainian politics and even the government, in case they denounce their former citizenships. The reason given was the fight with notorious Ukrainian corruption. Apparently, in a country of more than 40 million people, Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk (called “Rabbit” by his citizens) couldn’t find a dozen or so native-born yet not corrupt professionals for his government.

"I don't give a fuck it's your house": American Sniper's Failure

American Sniper is a film about stupid people who were brainwashed into doing something stupid and it justifies their stupidity so that the stupid people watching can feel good about themselves. See, the one thing you can't separate out from the film is history. It tries to elide over history, but just because it isn't mentioned doesn't mean it isn't there. Because of that, the overwhelming feeling the Rude Pundit had was pity, not pride.

Radical Leftists Win Election In Greece – Future Of Eurozone In Serious Jeopardy

Radical leftists have been catapulted to power in Greece, and that means that the European financial crisis has just entered a dangerous new phase. Syriza, which is actually an acronym for “Coalition of the Radical Left” in Greek, has 36 percent of the total vote with approximately 80 percent of the polling stations reporting. The current governing party, New Democracy, only has 28 percent of the vote. Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras is promising to roll back a whole host of austerity measures that were imposed on Greece by the EU, and his primary campaign slogan was “hope is on the way”. Hmmm – that sounds a bit familiar.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the start of a flood of what will be attacks by corporate media on Greece for DARING to want to run their country for their own people. The new definition of "Radical" is anyone not willing to live their lives in servitude to the private central banks, and I predict that the private central banks of the world will engage in massive economic dirty tricks to crush this upstart government that values people above bankers' profits!

Disillusioned by War, Israeli Soldiers Muted in 1967 Are Given Fuller Voice

A young Israeli soldier, fresh from the front, bluntly recounts the orders from above. “They never said, ‘Leave no one alive,’ but they said, ‘Show no mercy,’ ” he explains. “The brigade commander said to kill as many as possible.”

Another recalls encountering Arabs on rooftops. “They’re civilians — should I kill them or not?” he asks himself. “I didn’t even think about it. Just kill! Kill everyone you see.” And a third makes it personal: “All of us — Avinoam, Zvika, Yitzhaki — we’re not murderers. In the war, we all became murderers.”

The Death of Vincent Foster

This is the story that nobody dares touch. This is the story that ended my career in Hollywood back in 1994.

Despite having reported the discovery of Dr. Haut's signed report confirming the existence of a second wound to Vincent Foster's neck, radio host Rush Limbaugh to this very day refers to Vincent Foster's death as a suicide.

Even Matt Drudge, when presented with the FBI records proving that the FBI fraudulently manufactured Lisa Foster's recognition of the gun found at Fort Marcy Park, refused to get involved, opting instead for a story accusing Sidney Blumenthal of domestic violence (for which Drudge was then sued and made famous).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Everyone is focusing on Bill Clinton's wild parties with Jeff Epstein and speculating on how this might deter Hillary from running in 2016.

Quite the contrary, yet another sex scandal for Bill will actually HELP Hillary because she will win sympathy from the female voters by playing the wronged woman, and more importantly, focusing on Bill's sexcapades distracts from the real Hillary scandals that could end her career such as the cattle futures trades, Travel office firings, herself being fired from the Watergate committee, being photographed with a known cocaine smuggler in front of the White House Christmas Tree, and of course, the murder of Vince Foster!

Special Report: Notes on Another Clinton Scandal - Was Vince Foster Killed?

We encountered one of those while on a road trip through Arkansas – and stopping off in Hope. It is not only the famed birthplace of former president Bill Clinton, as well as former governor Mike Huckabee, it is also the hometown and burial ground of Vince Foster, a man who was childhood neighbors with Bill, partner at the Rose Law Firm with Hillary, and as deputy legal council for the White House, one of the closest keepers of the Clinton Administration’s most personal secrets.

Early into the first term, when the Clintons found themselves already embroiled in scandals including those surrounding the Travel Staff and Whitewater financial investigations, Vince Foster was found dead in Fort Darcy Park, officially ruled to be a suicide – but suggesting much more.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Vince Foster case was the reason I lost my career in Hollywood and was thrust into a career as a truth activist over twenty years ago.

New York City hunkers down for the 'worst snowstorm in history': Shelves are cleared ahead of blizzard that threatens THREE FEET of snow. Thousands of flights cancelled and workers told to stay home

Northeast residents were girding for a 'crippling and potentially historic' storm that could bury communities from northern New Jersey to southern Maine in up to 3 feet of snow.

The National Weather Service said that winter storm Juno would bring heavy snow, powerful winds and widespread coastal flooding starting on Monday and through Tuesday. A blizzard warning was issued for a 250-mile stretch of the Northeast, including New York and Boston, affecting close to 60 million people with 'life-threatening' conditions.

Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming

Although it has been emerging for seven years or more, one of the most extraordinary scandals of our time has never hit the headlines. Yet another little example of it lately caught my eye when, in the wake of those excited claims that 2014 was “the hottest year on record”, I saw the headline on a climate blog: “Massive tampering with temperatures in South America”. The evidence on Notalotofpeopleknowthat, uncovered by Paul Homewood, was indeed striking.

Puzzled by those “2014 hottest ever” claims, which were led by the most quoted of all the five official global temperature records – Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) – Homewood examined a place in the world where Giss was showing temperatures to have risen faster than almost anywhere else: a large chunk of South America stretching from Brazil to Paraguay.

Robbers and looters are targeting trucks carrying food across Venezuela in another sign of worsening shortages that have turned basics like flour and chicken into coveted booty.

But widespread shortages due to a restriction of dollars for imports have worsened since the New Year.

HOLOHOAX TRICKERY:DEATH CAMPS vs WORK CAMPS

For the past 20 years or so, it has been fun to watch how the ever-evolving field of 'Holocaust Studies' adjusts to new discoveries which contradict the original narrative. For example, when it became apparent that there wasn't actually any documentation to support the Holohoax, the Holohoaxers abandoned their 50 year old mantra of "It's well documented!", and seamlessly transitioned to "The Germans destroyed the documents" mode.

Argentine prosecutor shot point blank in forehead: official

Nisman was found dead with a bullet to the head in his Buenos Aires home on Sunday, just before he was set to go before a congressional hearing to accuse Kirchner and Foreign Minister Hector Timerman of shielding Iranian officials implicated in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center that killed 85 people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The claim that Nisman was going to implicate Iran is pure supposition. Nisman's investigation implictaed Israel, and reports are that Kirchner Timerman were trying to protect Tel Aviv by framing Iran.

Netanyahu claims speech to US Congress is ‘anti-Iran strategy,’ not presidential snub

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended on Sunday a planned speech to the U.S. Congress about Iran, saying he had a moral obligation to take every opportunity to speak out on an issue that poses a mortal threat to his country.

His visit to Washington in March has opened up a political rift in the United States and has drawn accusations in Israel that Netanyahu is undermining a strategic alliance to win an election due two weeks after the trip.

Briefing his cabinet on the speech to be made on March 3 to a joint meeting of Congress, Netanyahu said his priority was to urge the United States and other powers not to negotiate an Iranian nuclear deal that might endanger Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Prime Minister, this statement is grade-A, select-quality bovine excrement and you know it.

Iran hasn't begone a war in over 200 years; one certainly cannot say that with a straight face about Israel.

You goals are very simple, but amazingly transparent; to neuter the President's foreign policy goals in Iran; to cause Congress to cave to a foreign country in its actions regarding Iran; and to convince the Israeli voters that you still have the US government firmly by the "short and curlies".

And I hope you fail, miserably, because, as you are well aware, additional sanctions against Iran will cause them to leave the P5+1 negotiations. This, may well, cause Iranian legislators to believe that their only course of action is to develop an atomic bomb, and quickly, as a defense against an attack by Israel.

And sir, I will tell you: the American people have no stomach for yet another war in the Middle East to "neutralize" yet another of Israel's alleged "existential enemies", fought and paid for by American taxpayers, because they can see, very clearly, how US military action in Iraq,(not to mention Afghanistan, Libya, and Yemen) have failed catastrophically.

If Israel begins a war with Iran, and pulls the US along with it, you will see an outpouring of pro-peace, anti-Israeli rhetoric in this country the likes of which you have never seen in the history of Israel.

Sir,criticizing the government of Israel when it is doing something absolutely morally wrong is not anti-Semitic, but the absolutely correct action to take, as it would be with any other country with a bloodthirst for starting wars, and expanding territory to which they legally and morally hold no legitimate claim.

Earlier this summer, a woman in Cincinnati noticed that her son’s Walmart-brand ice cream sandwich didn’t melt when he accidentally left it outside for 12 hours, in 80-degree F weather.

Understandably surprised by the seemingly unmeltable ice cream sandwich, she tried the “experiment” again, with the same result. While other brands melted completely, the Walmart ice cream remained eerily intact. She then called a local news station, who conducted a test of its own, which you can watch in the video above.

Attack on Mariupol Begins; 7,000-8,000 Ukrainian Forces Nearly Encircled in Northern Cauldron; US Sends Army Trainers

Jacob Dreizin, a US citizen who speaks Russian and reads Ukrainian provides a DNR perspective that he has seen.

Jacob writes ...

Background for Zakharchenko's "no more ceasefires" statement stems from rebel disappointment back in August when Moscow forced the rebels to the negotiating table in Minsk, Belarus. The rebels gave up some territory around Mariupol at a time when Ukraine army was retreating, and in complete disarray.

This could have been a great opportunity for Kiev to come to its senses and accept a political solution.

However, the Ukraine side openly and repeated stated that the so-called ceasefire was just a tactical move prior to building up the forces and going back on the offensive. Then Kiev announced a 4th wave build-up of 50,000-100,000 troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the White House, Congress, the Pentagon, and the State Department; in the images at the bottom left of this article, the smoke from attacks appear to be coming from residential housing units.

Not to put to fine a point on it, but is not the shelling of residential buildings A WAR CRIME?!?

And now, we have American troops on the ground in Ukraine as "advisers". Odd, it seems I remember that this was precisely how the Vietnam war began. And we all remember just how brilliant THAT turned out for this country, don't we?!?!?

I wonder if any bookies in Vegas are exploring the odds of just how soon Obama will be sending armed combat troops to Ukraine, not to "advise" but to fight alongside Ukrainian soldiers.

Folks, unless someone in Foggy Bottom comes to their senses, we are looking, very soon, at a shooting war with Russia.

There is only so far Putin will be pushed; and that is precisely what Obama and his team are betting on, just as Roosevelt baited the Japanese to attack Pearl Harbor.

I would like to strongly caution those precious few adults in the bowels of power in DC that the US military, at this point, does not have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes the military scenario here so scarily dangerous.

'The man can only ride you when your back is bent': Sarah Palin 'rambles incoherently' in Iowa after teleprompter freezes... a day after she declared an interest in 2016 run

Republican firebrand Sarah Palin is rarely at a loss for words but became unmoored on Saturday in Iowa after her teleprompter froze and left her without portions of her prepared speech.

The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee flipped through a binder of notes and strung together a series of one-liners – and some of them made little sense.

'The man can only ride you when your back is bent,' she said, as audience members looked at each other quizzically.

'So strengthen it! Then the man can't ride you, America won't get taken for a ride, because so much is at stake.'

Addressing the controversy over the virtues of the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and the 'American Sniper' film that tells his life story, she shouted: “Screw the left in Hollywood!'

Greeks elect new parliament amid EU withdrawal concerns

Greeks are going to polling stations on Sunday to elect a new parliament. The populist radical-leftist party Syriza has won the hearts of many austerity-ridden people with its message of reverting wages cuts and renegotiating debt obligations.

Prime Minister Antonis Samaras was forced to call a snap vote in December after the parliament failed to elect a president. His center-right New Democracy party is now running behind Syriza, with opinion polls showing a gap of several percentage points.

Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras urged his voters to give his party an outright victory of 40 percent, which would allow him to form a government with no help from other parties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is because the last time Greece held elections, Syriza won, but the pro-banker politicians refused to form a coalition government, forcing a second election that Syriza lost by a razor thin margin amid reports of wide-scale election fraud.

Secret TPP Negotiations—And Public Protests—To Be Held in New York City

The next round of secret Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations begins this Monday, January 26, and runs through the following week at the Sheraton New York Time Square Hotel in downtown Manhattan.

As with many previous TPP meetings, the public will be shut out of talks as negotiators convene behind closed doors to decide binding rules that could impact how our lawmakers set digital policy in the decades to come. Big content industry interests have been given privileged access to negotiating texts and have driven the US Trade Representative's mandate when it comes to copyright—which is why the TPP carries extreme copyright measures that ignore users' rights.

400 TSA agents have been arrested for theft of passenger items while not one terrorist has been caught.

A TSA agent convicted of stealing more than $800,000 worth of goods from travelers said this type of theft is “commonplace” among airport security. Almost 400 TSA officers have been fired for stealing from passengers since 2003.

Pythias Brown, a former Transportation Security Administration officer at Newark Liberty International Airport, spent four years stealing everything he could from luggage and security checkpoints, including clothing, laptops, cameras, Nintendo Wiis, video games and cash.

Speaking publicly for the first time after being released after three years in prison, Brown told ABC News that he used the X-ray scanners to locate the most valuable items to snatch.

Get Ready For Negative Interest Rates In The US

With Fed mouthpiece Jon Hilsenrath warning - in no lesser status-quo narrative-deliverer than The Wall Street Journal - that The ECB's actions (and pre-emptive collapse in the EUR) means the U.S. economy must deal with a rapidly strengthening dollar that will make American goods more expensive abroad, potentially slowing both U.S. growth and inflation; and Treasury Secretary Lew coming out his crypt to mention "unfair FX moves," it appears The Fed (and powers that be) are worrying about King Dollar. This suggests, as Mises Canada's Patrick Barron predicts, the Fed will start charging negative interest rates on bank reserve accounts as the final tool in the war on savings and wealth in order to spur the Keynesian goal of increasing “aggregate demand”. If savers won’t spend their money, the government will take it from them.

Martin Scorsese's Bill Clinton Documentary Shelved Over Creative Control

Martin Scorsese's upcoming slate is already packed with an authorized Grateful Dead documentary, his rock & roll HBO series co-created with Mick Jagger and the planned Ramones biopic. However, another of the legendary director's projects, the partly finished HBO-backed documentary on President Bill Clinton, has been indefinitely shelved as the director and former POTUS wrestle over control of the film.

According to New York Times, Scorsese and Clinton are butting heads over their interviews Frost/Nixon style, with the Goodfellas director unwilling to relinquish control of the questions and their content.

Considering the strong possibility that Hillary Clinton is planning her own presidential run in 2016, Bill also reportedly wants input over the documentary's final cut to ensure nothing that can harm her campaign is aired.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Scorsese actually believed that he could get this documentary to see the light of day without the Clintons being in total control of the outcome, he is amazingly naive.

David Stockman: Woodrow Wilson's War & Why The Entire 20th Century Was A Mistake

My humble thesis tonight is that the entire 20th Century was a giant mistake.

And that you can put the blame for this monumental error squarely on Thomas Woodrow Wilson——-a megalomaniacal madman who was the very worst President in American history……..well, except for the last two.

His unforgiveable error was to put the United States into the Great War for utterly no good reason of national interest. The European war posed not an iota of threat to the safety and security of the citizens of Lincoln NE, or Worcester MA or Sacramento CA. In that respect, Wilson’s putative defense of “freedom of the seas” and the rights of neutrals was an empty shibboleth; his call to make the world safe for democracy, a preposterous pipe dream.

Actually, his thinly veiled reason for plunging the US into the cauldron of the Great War was to obtain a seat at the peace conference table——so that he could remake the world in response to god’s calling.
