Golden State Warriors Reject White House Invite After Trump Disinvites Stephen Curry "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

President Trump Revoked Golden States Stephen Currys Invitation to the White House Saturday morning.

Stephen Curry expressed his concerns about going to the White House since winning the NBA Championship, so Trump blasted him and withdrew the basketball players invitation.

The Golden State Warriors released a statement Saturday afternoon rejecting the White House invite.

We accept that President Trump has made it clear that we are not invited. We believe there is nothing more American than our citizens having the right to express themselves freely on matters important to them. Were dissappointed that we did not have an opportunity during this process to share our views or have open dialogue on issues impacting our communities that we felt would be important to raise.

In lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that well constructively use our trip to the nations capitol in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusionthe values that we embrace as an organization.

Athletes are paid to play a sport and entertain fans. If they want to bash President Trump, spout off their political views and kneel during the National Anthem, their fans have a right to boycott.

Casual Observation "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

While it's not the tactic I would advise, I'd like to remind everyone that people aren't kneeling during the national anthem because they don't like the singing or the lyrics. They aren't doing it because they think our flag is ugly. Their point is not to show disrespect or disapproval of either. They're kneeling to draw attention to the fact that people of color get shot or choked or tased to death by the police at an alarming rate in this country and that the shooters and chokers are almost never found to have committed a sanctionable offense, let alone a crime.

So, when the president says that the protesters are sons of bitches who should be fired for their disloyalty, that's not just a calculated way to benefit politically, it's primarily a way to avoid acknowledging the whole point.

That it is so easy to divert attention from the whole point and to benefit politically while doing so is a good argument against the protest tactic, and I might offer some alternatives that would be more effective. But I'd never dismiss the sentiment behind it. I'd never call someone a son of a bitch because they think it's wrong that so many young men of color are losing their lives without any form of due process, or because he or she is outraged that it's nearly impossible for a cop to be punished or prosecuted for taking a life no matter how strong the evidence is against them.

This isn't really even a protest against the police. Not really. It's only a protest against the police if the police collectively take the attitude that killing black and brown people with near impunity is not only a solid policy but their God-given right. If they believe bad shootings and wrongful deaths are no big deal, then obviously the kneeling becomes a protest against the police in general. But that's their choice to react that way and turn the people against them. If they want to respond to people begging for blacks lives to matter by insisting that all this criticism is a way of arguing the blue lives don't, then they've brought broad moral condemnation on themselves. No one forced them to misunderstand or pretend to misunderstand, or to take sides against the people who criticize the bad cops in their ranks.

The president is a born asshole seeking to lead every born asshole in the country. If you take his side on this, you're joining a truly deplorable army. You can disagree with the tactic of kneeling during the anthem without joining an army of born assholes.

Did McCain Just Kill Obamacare Repeal, Again? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Lets see if we can count to three, because thats how many Republican senators it will take to kill the Graham-Cassidy plan to destroy the Affordable Care Act and deny thirty million Americans their access to health care. All these articles were published within the last few hours:

One (Game):

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation.

I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried, he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.).

Two (Set):

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said on Friday she has serious concerns about the latest GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare as Republicans prepare to vote on the legislation next week.

Im leaning against the bill, Collins told the Portland Press-Herald. Im just trying to do what I believe is the right thing for the people of Maine.

The premiums would be so high they would be unaffordable, she said, referring to the cost for individuals with pre-existing health conditions.

Three (Match):

Rand Paul, a definitive no on Senate Republicans last-ditch effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, wont be bribed or bullied into supporting the bill, the Kentucky Republican said Friday.

Calling a bill that KEEPS most of Obamacare repeal doesnt make it true. Thats what the swamp does, Paul tweeted. I wont be bribed or bullied.

Pauls tweets came after President Donald Trump singled him out in seeking to pressure GOP lawmakers via Twitter on Friday morning to back the bill.

I guess we dont need to worry about whether or not Lisa Murkowski of Alaska can be successfully bribed. Although, I wonder how sh...

What Now for Puerto Rico? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I continue to see apocalyptic estimates that it will take about four months for electric power to be restored on the island of Puerto Rico. There must be some way that we can improve on that number. We definitely should marshal every expert and every resource we have to do better than that. In the meantime, however, it will inevitably cause at least a short-term exodus of people to the mainland. Anyone with the resources or family connections to move is going to move. Would you stay somewhere without power for months if you had any alternative? What happens to the economy in a situation like that? How do you make a living and pay the rent or the mortgage?

Our first concern should be humanitarian. Generators and the fuel to power them should be near the top of the list. Health care facilities will need them, but also businesses that might thereby manage to operate, stay afloat, and keep people employed. Vulnerable people who need electricity to power life-saving medical equipment may have to be evacuated, and theyll need some kind of housing. This is an unimaginable catastrophe.

Inevitably, many of the people who come to the mainland over the next few months will not make it back anytime soon, if ever. The second they arrive somewhere in the fifty states, theyll be eligible to vote. In some places, particularly Florida, their numbers may be large enough to change political outcomes. If they align overwhelmingly with one political party, this will be much more likely. For this reason, both parties have an interest in avoiding a situation where they are blamed for an inadequate response. If the Republicans discover that theyre not getting much support from the refugees, theyll be all the more incentivized to repair Puerto Rico quickly so that a reverse migration takes place.

These dynamics could be helpful in terms of Puerto Rico getting the attention and resources that it needs. Theres still a longer-term risk though that the imposition of harsh conditions for repayment of loans and other efforts to Detroitify the island will cause a political backlash. This process was already in motion before the hurricanes hit, but it will probably go into overdrive now.

Its also not clear to me that law and order can stand up for months when there is no power and people cant get their basic needs met. What this might do to the existing political order in Puerto Rico and how it might erode sympathy on the mainland are hard to predict. I cant even predict whether this will add or subtract from the sentiment for full s...

The DCCC Fully Embraced A More Conservative Democratic Party-- Partners With The Blue Dogs "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Earlier today we compared the worst of the Republicans to the worst of the Democrats-- and came to the conclusion that the worst Republicans are worse than the worst Democrats. But that doesn't make the worst Democrats-- the New Dems and Blue Dogs from the Republican wing of the Democratic Party-- any less repellent than there records show them to be.

A couple of words before about the Republican wing of the Democratic Party first. The Blue Dogs and the New Dems are actual organizations, with members dues, admission processes, charters, officers, etc. They are not some words to use to describe non-members. And although Beltway goofballs tare always saying that the New Dems aren't as bad-- as in extreme right-- as the Blue Dogs, the fact of the matter is that almost every Blue Dog is also a New Dem. The worst Blue Dogs-- no matter how you define "worst"-- from Kirsten Sinema (AZ), Josh Gottheimer (NJ), Jim Costa (CA), and Stephanie Murphy (FL) to Jim Cooper (TN), Kurt Schrader (OR), Charlie Crist (FL) and Lou Correa (CA)-- are also New Dems. Generally speaking the new Dems are first and foremost a pack of corrupt conservatives who use the organization to launder special interest money into their careers. The New Dem leadership includes money-hungry crooks Jim Times (CT), Derek Kilmer (WA), Terri Sewell (AL), Kathleen Rice (NY), Ron Kind (WI), Scott Peters (CA) and Suzan DelBene (WA). Wassermann Schultz is also a member. And the former New Dem chairman, Joe Crowley, the most corrupt Democrat in the House, is now in line to tale over the Democratic congressional leadership.

Since Rahm, a major New Dem, was head of the DCCC, New Dems have always been favored in recruitment and campaign funding. Now, under "ex"-Blue Dog Steve Israel protg, Ben Ray Lujan, the DCCC is openly recruiting and funding Blue Dogs. They always did it, but now they're publicly celebrating that they're doing it. Keep in mind that inside the Beltway politicians and thei...

President Trump: I might have made a mistake. Ill be honest, I might have made a mistake because you know, heres a story. If Luther doesnt win theyre not going to say we picked up 25 points in a very short period of time. Theyre going to say, Donald Trump, the president of the United States, was unable to pull his candidate across the line. It is a terrible, terrible moment for Trump. This is total embarassment. I mean these are bad people. And, by the way, both good men. And you know what, I told Luther I had to say this, if his opponent wins, Im going to be here campaigning like hell for him.

Killing: The American Way "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A napalm strike during the Vietnam War. (manhahi / CC BY 2.0)

One of the most hyped events of American television, The Vietnam War, has started on the PBS network. The directors are Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. Acclaimed for his documentaries on the Civil War, the Great Depression and the history of jazz, Burns says of his Vietnam films, They will inspire our country to begin to talk and think about the Vietnam War in an entirely new way.

In a society often bereft of historical memory and in thrall to the propaganda of its exceptionalism, Burns entirely new Vietnam War is presented as epic, historic work. Its lavish advertising campaign promotes its biggest backer, Bank of America, which in 1971 was burned down by students in Santa Barbara, California, as a symbol of the hated war in Vietnam.

Burns says he is grateful to the entire Bank of America family, which has long supported our countrys veterans. Bank of America was a corporate prop to an invasion that killed perhaps as many as 4 million Vietnamese and ravaged and poisoned a once-bountiful land. More than 58,000 American soldiers were killed, and around the same number are estimated to have taken their own lives.

I watched the first episode in New York. It leaves you in no doubt of its intentions right from the start. The narrator says the war was begun in good faith by decent people out of fateful misunderstandings, American overconfidence and Cold War misunderstandings.

The dishonesty of this statement is not surprising. The cynical fabrication of false flags that led to the invasion of Vietnam is a matter of recordthe Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964, which Burns promotes as true, was just one. The lies litter a multitude of official documents, notably the Pentagon Papers, which the great whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg released in 1971.

There was no good faith. The faith was rotten and cancerous. For meas it must be for many Americansit is difficult to watch the films jumble of red peril maps, unexplained interviewees, ineptly cut archive and maudlin American battlefield sequences....

BOOM! Austin Police SLAM Violent Masked Antifa Terrorists to the Ground, Make Multiple Arrests (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Hundreds of left-wing Antifa terrorists came out to protest a Dixie Freedom Rally in Austin, Texas, on Saturday.

The police werent putting up with the violence and slammed masked Antifa terrorists to the ground while making multiple arrests.




The Texas Confederate Militia decided to postpone their rally to a later date because they received violent threats from Antifa. Even though the rally was cancelled, Antifa protested anyway.

Antifa celebrated, claiming the white supremacists cancelled their rally due to the communitys response.

Why are Antifa protesters allowed to show up masked with weapons? If masks were banned and they were declared a domestic terrorist organization, the violence would virtually end.

The Antifa terrorists were screaming at the police officers calling them murderers and violent pigs. They were also calling the cops f*cking psychopaths! as they made arrests.

This is what we get after Obama demonized police officers for 8 years.

Obama is Funding the Anti-Trump Resistance Through Massive Mortgage Money Shakedown "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Obama is funding the anti-Trump resistance.

Never have we seen an ex-President undermine the next administration like this. There was never a peaceful transfer of power to the Trump administration. From the Russian collusion hoax to the landmines Obama set up, the Deep State is clawing to hang on to every ounce of power.

Paul Sperry of the New York Post breaks it down:

The Obama administrations massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back-door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis.

At least three liberal nonprofit organizations the Justice Department approved to receive funds from multibillion-dollar mortgage settlements were instrumental in killing the ObamaCare repeal bill and are now lobbying against GOP tax reform, as well as efforts to rein in illegal immigration.

An estimated $640 million has been diverted into what critics say is an improper, if not unconstitutional, slush fund fed from government settlements with JPMorgan Chase and Co., Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp., according to congressional sources.

Cause of Action Institute vice president Julie Smith told The Post that these radical left-wing groups committed to revolutionary social change sent proposals to and even met with high level HUD and DOJ officials in order to get their piece of the settlement pie.

Now these groups, being well-funded, are actively working against Trumps America first policies.

One of the groups that received $1.5 million from Obamas slush fund, La Raza, a radical brown power group lobbying for illegal immigration and open borders actively fought against the repeal of Obamacare. Why? Because 8 million hispanics would lose their healthcare coverage if ACA was repealed.

In July, La Raza held a huge rally in Arizona to protest the ACA repeal efforts, influencing John McCains decision to stop Trumps healthcare proposals which would ultimately repeal Obamacare.

National Urban League received $1.2 million from Obamas slush fund according to The Post. They are an African-America group lobbying to keep ACA because they claim 5 million African-Americans would lose their health...

Wisconsin-- The Center Of The Political Universe For 2018? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


I had the impression that even before Randy Bryce realized he could do the "impossible" and actually beat Paul Ryan in Wisconsin's southeast congressional district, he was willing to run and rally the base and turn out the vote in the district so that Democrats would go to the polls and vote in other elections, especially Tammy Baldwin's tough reelection campaign for U.S. Senate. One basic lesson the DCCC and DNC have steadfastly refused to learn-- or even understand-- is that when there are candidates down-ballot generating local enthusiasm and excitement, it helps candidates running hop-ballot (like for governor and senator). Bryce is a strategic thinker. The DCCC isn't; the people running it are just clueless money-grubbing careerists.

Yesterday, Randy Bryce was a featured speaker at the International Association of Machinists' annual statewide convention at the Manitowoc Holiday Inn, 2 counties up Lake Michigan from WI-01. Frank Schaeffer, who's beginning a new project to help flip Congress from reactionary red to progressive blue, was with Bryce filming and interviewing. The DCCC literally had no plans for contesting any seats in Wisconsin in the 2018 cycle (because their only lame metric for targeting was to look to see where Clinton beat Trump and contest those districts, something they will regret on November 7, 2018.) I'm not saying they shouldn't use that metric at all, but that they should also use another-- one that would have them contesting seats in districts-- like WI-01 and other Wisconsin districts-- where Hillary was the wrong candidate and lost to Trump but where primary day saw Bernie not just outpolling Hillary but also outpolling Trump. Example: if you want to win WI-01, you have to win the 4 key counties that contribute most of the votes: Racine, where Trump beat Hillary 49.8% to 45.4%, Kenosha, where Trump beat Hillary 47.5% to 47.2%, Walworth, where Trump beat Hilary 57.0% to 37.0% and Rock, where Hillary managed to eke out a 52.4% to 42.0% win.

President Trump slammed RINO John McCain, (R-AZ) early Saturday morning over McCains opposition to the latest Obamacare repeal effort.

This comes after Senator McCain told reporters on Friday he cannot support the latest Obamacare repeal bill.

His hatred for Trump and the working man takes precedence over his campaign promises.

John McCain ran his election campaign on repealing Obamacare.

John McCain even ran campaign ads promising to repeal and replace Obamacare.

John McCain called Obamacare an exercise in sleeze back in 2012.

John McCain is a liar.

On Saturday President Trump published a series of tweets slamming the liar McCain.

IKEA Humans "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Samuel Biagetti in Jacobin, pondering the rootless modern liberal:

Jennifer and Jason are members of the upper middle class, living off their smarts and social connections rather than manual work. They live in the Sun Belt, in some newly gentrifying neighborhood of Queens, or in its equivalent in Montreal or Melbourne. They have college degrees and, even more importantly, college friends, which help to pull them up the slippery slope of middle-class employment. They are part of a scrambled white-collar workforce, drawn from all parts of the country and abroad, a lumpenbourgeoisie squeezing itself into selected wards of a few expensive cities. They follow trends in food, and music, and long-form television. Their politics are probably (but not definitely) liberal.
In the tradition of 19th-century social commentary, Biagetti considers Jennifer and Jason through the lens of their furniture, which is of course from IKEA:
Still, there is a good chance that Jennifer and Jason actually like their IKEA dressers, and prefer them to the old oak chest that their grandparents tried to foist on them. Indeed, the extraordinary popularity of IKEA testifies not only to its convenience but to its ability to appeal to the middle-class self-image. Jennifer and Jason are drawn to IKEA because it reflects who they are: they too are modern, movable, and interchangeable, their wants satisfiable in any neighborhood with a food co-op and a coffee shop. More fundamentally, Jennifer and Jason are untraceable, a composite material made from numberless scraps and pieces. They have a long catalog of home towns, and their accents are NPR neutral. They can probably rattle off the various nationalities in their family trees Dutch, Norwegian, Greek, and Jewish, maybe some Venezuelan or Honduran for a little color. From these backgrounds they retain no more than a humorous word or phrase, a recipe, or an Ellis Island anecdote, if that. They grew up amidst a scramble of white-collar professionals and went to college with a scramble of white-collar professionals kids. Their values are defined mainly by mass media, their tastes adorably quirky but never straying too far from their peers, and like the IKEA furniture that they buy in boxes, they too cut themselves into manageable, packaged pieces and market themselves online. They are probably spiritual but not religious. They have no pattern or model of life that bears any relation to the past before the internet. For all intents and purposes, they sprang up de novo in the modern city.
Some people would be tempted to call J and J cosmopolitan, but, says Biagetti, that doesn't really fit, because they actually live in a closed world and avoid interacting with people different from thems...

NFL Commissioner Lectures Trump Not the Jackass Anti-Cop Players Kneeling during the Anthem "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

President Trump lashed out at NFL players protesting the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).

President Trump brought up the NFL players who disrespect our flag and our country by taking a knee during the National Anthem in protest.

The crowd went wild after Trump said, Wouldnt you love to see one of the NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag, to say get that son of b*tch off the field right now! Out! Hes fired! Hes fired!

The crowd erupted into cheers and started chanting, USA! USA! USA!

On Saturday the NFL Commissioner lectured President Trump not the jackass players kneeling during the national anthem.

The Hill reported:

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell fired back at President Trump on Saturday for encouraging league owners to remove players who take a knee during the national anthem, saying Trumps divisive comments show an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.

The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture, Goodell said in a statement. There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and players to the terrible natural disasters weve experienced over the last month....

DOES TRUMP BELIEVE HIS OWN LIES? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

President Trump traveled to Alabama last night to campaign on behalf of Luther Strange, who's trying to hold on to his Senate seat. Trump delivered an 85-minute speech that was occasionally about Strange, but often about Trump's usual hobbyhorses -- "Crooked Hillary" and so on. It's hard to say whether that will help Strange in his upcoming Republican runoff against Roy Moore, who's leading in the polls.

Here's something Trump said that was actually about Strange (although you could argue that it was more about himself):

President Donald Trump claimed his branding genius extended to Sen. Luther Strange's "Big Luther" nickname, telling the crowd at Huntsville's Von Braun Center that he was the first person to give the senator that moniker....

Trump made the comments while sharing an anecdote about one of the first times he met Strange.

"I said, That is the tallest human being I've ever seen," the president said. "I'm tall, I never saw something ... like he should be on the New York Knicks they, could use him. That's why i call him 'Big Luther.' Everyone's now calling him Big Luther.'"

Trump returned back to the "Big Luther" nickname later on in his speech.

"Did people call you 'Big Luther before you met Trump? You know, I brand people," he said. Nobody ever called you 'Big Luther? I think it's a great name."
Strange has been using that nickname since his first run for office, which was in 2006. Here's a news story from that 2006 race:



In that race, which Strange lost, he was running against James Folsom, Jr., who was known as "Little Jim," even though he was a six-footer, because he was the son of "Big Jim" Folsom, a former governor of Alabama. You can also watch this ad from Strange's successful 2010 campaign for state attorney general:



Here's what I'm wondering: When Trump makes a claim like this, does he believe it?

My guess is no -- at least not at first. Swaggering into a public situation and claiming ownership of an idea that's not yours is probably a trick he picked up from his father, or from one of his mentors, p...

Repellent Republicans Are Way More Repellent Than Repellent Democrats-- And There Are Plenty Of Repellent Democrats "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Our Revolution is asking Democrats to cosponsor 8 specific bills that mae up the progressive legislative agenda. Their pitch is good: "Resisting the Trump administration and Republican Congressional agenda is only part of how we can move our country forward. Now is the time for Democrats to campaign on a bold agenda and fight to create an America that works for everyone. If Democrats want to win in 2018 and take our country back from the billionaire class and Republicans, they need to start by supporting legislation that speaks to the real concerns facing the American people. We're fighting for a Congress that will put people before profits to create an America where everyone, regardless of the age, race, gender or economic status has access to health care, free college tuition, a livable planet, and a job that pays a living wage. The Democratic Party Platform makes it clear that Democrats must fight for these issues as a party. Were asking all House Democrats to commit to supporting our #PeoplesPlatform bills by signing on as a co-sponsor when Congress comes back in session in September."

Nearly Entire 2017 US Debt Increase of $200 Billion Can Be Attributed to FED Rate Increases "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The US Debt has increased year to date by $232 billion since President Trumps inauguration on January 20, 2017.  On inauguration day the debt was at $19.9 trillion and on September 21, 2017 the debt stood at $20.2 trillion.

President Obama during the same time period in his first term also increased the US Debt.  However, where President Trump increased the Debt to date by 1.2%, Obama increased the debt by 11.1% or 10% more than Trump.  President Obama inherited a US Debt amount of $10.6 trillion on his inauguration and increased it by nearly $1.2 trillion during his first eight months in office.

Obama increased the US Debt amount by $1 trillion more than President Trump in the first eight months of his Presidency when compared to President Trumps first eight months.

This was in spite of the fact that right after Barack Obama was elected President, on December 16, 2008, the Federal Reserve (The Fed) lowered the Fed Funds rate by an entire percent, from 1% down to 0%.  The Fed had not lowered the Fed Funds rate by such a large amount (1%) since at least before 1990, if ever.  The Fed kept this 0% rate for most of Obamas eigh...

In July President Donald Trump BLASTED former President Obama today over his many lies on Obamacare.

President Trump: Since 2013 Obamacare premiums have skyrocketed Despite the promise that premiums would decrease by $2,500 on average, theyve almost increased by $3,000 and even much more than that in some cases. Its crushing the Middle Class and the families of the Middle Class. Its frankly crushing our country. Obamacare was a big lie. You can keep your doctor Lie! You can keep your plan Lie! It was a lie directly from the president. You can keep your doctor. You can keep your plan. 28 times he said that. 28 times. And it was a lie and he knew it was!

TRUMP WAS RIGHT!

Here are a few of Barack Obamas more disturbing and consequential lies.

1.) If you like your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan
Number of mentions: 37 times

As Obama was pushing the tremendously unpopular legislation now known as Obamacare, at least 37 different times he promised that If you like your insurance plan you can keep your insurance plan. Even the liberal media could not ignore it. This was lie of the year in 2013. After cancellation letters were sent to 4 million Americans, the public finally realized his breezy assurances were wrong.

2.) With Obamacare we will reduce your insurance premiums by $2,500, per family per year
Number of mentions: At least 22 times

Obamacare increased 2014 individual market premiums by an average of 49%.

What is Putins Preferred Outcome for the German Elections? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Putins preferred outcome must be an outcome which excludes the German Green Party, because the Greens support EU sanctions against Russia and they want to stop Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The status quo Grand Coalition of CDU/CSU-SPD is good for Putin, as explained further below.

The head of Nord Stream 2 is former East German (DDR) Stasi Agent Matthias Warnig, an old friend of former East German KGB officer Putin. Warnig was managing director of Nord Stream from 2006-16.

It is worth recalling that Angela Merkel (CDU) spent 36 years of her life in Communist East Germany and that either Warnig or Putin or both could have compromising information on her with which to exert control.

Former Chancellor of Germany (SPD), Gerhard Schrder, is chairman of the board of Nord Stream 2.

St. Louis Aldermen Pass Resolution to Honor Heroin Dealer who Tried to Run Over Cops (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Last Friday a St. Louis judge found former Police Officer Jason Stockley NOT GUILTY in the shooting death of Anthony Smith, a black suspected heroin dealer. Black Lives Matter has held protests daily since the verdict.

Protesters stormed a local hotel on Thursday and harassed patrons in their rooms and at the pool.

After a week of violent protests where over a dozen police officers were injured and several businesses were vandalized the St. Louis Aldermen sprung to action on Friday.

The St. Louis Alderman passed a resolution to honor Anthony Smith the heroin dealer who tried to drive over Officer Stockley.

St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson then hugged the Smith family.

One week after the verdict was announced in the 2011 shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith, St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson met with Smiths mother, Annie.

Smiths parents were invited to city hall by Alderman John Collins-Muhammad, who introduced a resolution honoring the memory of Anthony Lamar Smith.

The acronym for the National Institutes of Health NIH more accurately means: not invented here.  The covert mission of the NIH is to block any remedy outside of synthetic molecules from gaining FDA approval.

News of this discovery was not aired by the Associated Press, The New York Times, the BBC, CNN, or other major news services.  These news agencies boast of a bevy of well-trained medical journalists who best serve the interests of the pharmaceutical industry.

Nor will your doctor know anything about it.  If you rely on these sources of health misinformation, dont bother reading any further.

It is a non-prescription cure for Alzheimers disease.  Dont wait for any of the 105 anti-Alzheimers drugs now in the development pipeline undergoing various drug trials in the approval process.  For many Americans, these drugs will never materialize in their lifetime.  It takes ~13 years for a candidate drug to move from the laboratory to FDA approval.  By then you may not be able to remember you read this report.

Cost beyond reason

Alzheimers disease (AD) is both a social challenge and a personal tragedy.  AD costs $200+ billion a year now to treat (with ineffective drugs, mind you) and projected to grow to a staggering $1 trillion in drug sales by 2050, which is more than the current Medicare budget.

Genghis Trump "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

NEW YORK Not since Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev banged his fists and waved his shoe at the UN in 1960 has a world leader made such a spectacle of himself as President Donald Trump did this past week at the world organization.

Trump vowed to totally destroy North Korea, a nation of 25 million, if it dared threaten the US or its allies.   To do so, the US would have to use numerous nuclear weapons.

The presidents Genghis Khan behavior seemed to take no account that a US nuclear strike against North Korea would cause huge destruction to neighboring China, Japan and Russia and pollute the globe.   They could hardly be expected to applaud Trumps final solution for pesky North Korea.

As leader of the worlds greatest power, President Trump was foolish to get into a schoolyard fracas with North Koreas Kim Jong-un.  Superpowers shouldnt engage in such childish behavior.  Trumps claim that North Korea threatens the world is a reheated Bush-era lie used to whip up support for invading Iraq.

In a subsequent speech to African UN delegates, Trump comically referred to the nation of Nambia instead of Namibia.  Lets hope Trump does not mix up the Koreas.  While passing through Philadelphia last week I was reminded of its former flamboyant, tough-guy police chief Frank Rizzo.  He famously welcomed a senior Nigerian official as the leader of Niggeria.

Interestingly, both axis of evil jeremiads originated from two different neocon speech writers, both known to this writer. 

Escalating tensions, North Koreas foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, suggested that his nation might detonate a hydrogen bomb in the atmosphere above the Pacific Ocean.

Amidst all the trumped-up hysteria over North Korea, too few questions were asked about its ballistic missiles that have caused such an uproar.

First, the DPRKs medium-range missiles, notably the 6,700km-range Hwasong and the 3,500 km-range Musudan are fueled by highly volatile liquid propellants.  Fuelling them is often done outdoors for safety reasons.  The dangerous, unstable chemical fuels have a tendency to spontaneously explode.  Early US ballistic missiles had similar problems.  Musudan, based on an elderly Soviet design, is notoriously unreliable and plagued by technical problems.

These missiles are usually kept on wheeled transporters (aka TELs) secreted in caves.  The transporters are based on Russian and Chinese designs.  An erector device then positions the missile into upright launch position.

This is the most vulnerable time for North Koreas missiles.  The US...

Are Chickenhawks Afraid of Ron and Lew? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Buried deep inside the just-passed defense budget is a small amendment, which could lead to a ban on broadcasting RT in America. The architects of the provision, Senators Graham and McCain, may recall that in their youth such practices formed what was known as the Iron Curtain.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the fiscal year 2018, which was passed by the US Senate earlier this week, is stuffed with provisions that have little to do with US national defense. This is a tactic that US lawmakers have traditionally used to piggy-back legislation which would have little hope of adoption as a stand-alone bill.

Deep down the list of amendments is No 1096, which aims to prohibit multichannel video programming distributors from being required to carry certain video content that is owned or controlled by the Government of the Russian Federation.

Proposed by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and co-sponsored by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island), the amendment was submitted by John McCain (R-Arizona), a fellow foreign policy hawk. The provision says a distributor working in a US jurisdiction may not be directly or indirectly required to carry video content that is is owned, controlled, or financed (in whole or in part) by the Government of the Russian Federation.

Time to buy old US gold coins

In plain English then, any contract RT currently has or will have with American cable and satellite networks to carry its programming will no longer be protected by US federal law after this amendment is signed into law by President Donald Trump. The channels current arrangements with carriers made it illegal for them to arbitrarily drop RTs programming (unless the content shown was obscene) but now they will apparently be able to discriminate against it should they so wish.

The discussion on how the US could insulate its population from RT was sparked by a declassified US intelligence community report on alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, which put this channel in the spotlight. The report asserted that RT was a primary tool of such interference, done through critical reporting on US foreign policy and domestic problems. Despite the report containing factual errors and no...

A Blast Heard 1,200 Miles Away "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

It has been over 200 years since Mount Tambora in Indonesia erupted violently, resulting in death and disorder on a global scale.

According to The Guinness Book of World Records it is the deadliest volcano in history.

Here MailOnline Travel reveals the horrifying but fascinating history of the blast and how tourists today can take a peek at its incredible crater.

Mount Tambora is an active stratovolcano meaning it is made up of layers of ash and lava on the island of Sumbawa in Indonesia, once known as the Dutch East Indies.

Its eruption in 1815 killed around 10,000 people instantly, while the fallout from the blast included formidable tsunami waves and then famine and starvation, which took the death toll up to some 100,000 people.

The exact number of fatalities varies with some sources saying as many as 120,000 people were killed while others put the figure at around 70,000.

Time to buy old US gold coins

Mount Tambora began to erupt just before sunset on 5 April 1815 and continued for five further days, blasting even more ferociously on 10 April.

The eruptions were heard 2,000 kilometres (1,242 miles) away.

Molten rock shot more than 40 kilometres (24 miles) into the sky and a thick veil of ash spread over a million square kilometres (386,000 square miles). In total, around 140billion tonnes of rock, ash and debris was flung into the sky.

The entire region was plunged into darkness.

Debris hit the sea surrounding the island with such force and in such huge volumes that deadly tsunamis up to four metres high (13ft) were set in motion.

There has been a lot in the news lately about a huge security breach that happened at credit reporting agency Equifax.  In fact, the odds are good your identity has been compromised since there were 143 million people affected.  So what should you do to give yourself the best chance of protection?

What Happened?

The breach started in mid-May of this year and lasted through July.  Of course, we consumers did not find out about it until this month, which to me is criminal, but I digress.  The hackers got names, addresses, Social Security numbers, and in certain cases, drivers license numbers.  Scarier is that 209,000 people had credit card information stolen.

The Commonwealth, a US territory, was in default for $74 billion in bonded debt, plus another $49 billion in unfunded pension obligations.

So, Puerto Rico already faced a crisis pre-Hurricane Maria, with its dodgy electric grid and crumbling infrastructure: roads, bridges, water and sewage systems. Bankruptcy put it in a poor position to issue new bonds for public works which are generally paid for with public borrowing. Who, exactly, would buy the new bonds? I hear readers whispering, the Federal Reserve. Which is a pretty good clue to understanding the circle-jerk that American finance has become.

Some sort of bailout is unavoidable, though President Trump tweeted No Bailout for Puerto Rico after the May bankruptcy proceeding. Things have changed and the shelf-life of Trumpian tweets is famously brief. But the crisis may actually strain the ability of the federal government to pretend it can cover the cost of every calamity that strikes the nation at least not without casting doubt on the soundness of the dollar. And not a few bonafide states are also whirling around the bankruptcy drain: Illinois, Connecticut, New Jersey, Kentucky.

Constitutionally states are not permitted to declare bankruptcy, though counties and municipalities can. Congress would have to change the law to allow it. But states can def...

Govt Crackdown Backfires "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Spain will deploy police reinforcements to the northeastern region of Catalonia to maintain order and take action if a referendum on independence pledged by the Catalan government but deemed illegal by Spain should take place, officials said Friday.

AP reports that an Interior Ministry statement said the extra agents would provide backing for the Catalan regional police who are also under orders to prevent the staging of the referendum.

But protests continue to grow and Rajoys actions only seem to solidify opposition

I feel the way people used to feel during Franco regime. Nothing less. Because Francoism is still alive, said protester Josep Selva, referring to Gen. Francisco Francos military regime that ruled Spain between 1939 and 1978, three years after his death.

The political reform of 1978 only legalized Francoism and disguised it as democracy, he said.

But, as WolfStreet.coms Don Quijones points out Madrids crackdown on Catalonia is already having one major consequence, presumably unintended: many Catalans who were until recently staunchly opposed to the idea of national independence are now reconsidering their options.

A case in point: At last nights demonstration, spread across multiple locations in Barcelona, were two friends of mine, one who is fanatically apolitical and the other who is a strong Catalan nationalist but who believes that independence would be a political and financial disaster for the region. It was their first ever political demonstration. If there is a vote on Oct-1, they will probably vote to secede.

The middle ground they and hundreds of thousands of others once occupied was obliterated yesterday when a judge in Barcelona ordered Spains militarized police force, the Civil Guard, to round up over a dozen Catalan officials in dawn raids. Many of them now face crushing daily fines of up to 12,000.

The Civil Guard also staged raids on key administrative buildings in Barcelona. The sight of balaclava-clad officers of the Civil Guard, one of the most potent symbols of the not-yet-f...

The Worst Airports in the US "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

New York Citys LaGuardia Airport has been ranked the worst large airport in the United States, according to a new survey.

The notoriously unpopular facility, which is located in Queens, came in last among 21 airports in its category.

Even more surprising is that LaGuardia came in last despite this year having an all-time high traveler satisfaction rating.

The ranking was conducted by JD Power and asked about customer experiences.

New Yorks other major airport also scored noticeably low it was ranked fourth worst among the countrys mega airports.

Among those that also received a poor score were Newark Liberty International in New Jersey, Los Angeles International and OHare International in Chicago.

The main reason passengers gave for their poor ratings had to do with poor infrastructure which people said they found disruptive.

The best airports in terms of customer satisfaction, according to the ranking, are John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, an Orlando International Airport in Florida.

Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County, McCaran International in Las Vegas and Phoenix Sky Harbor International also fared well on the survey.

How the US Became a Warmonger Police State "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Professor David Ray Griffin is a tenacious person. He has written a number of carefully researched books that demonstrate the extraordinary shortcomings in the official account of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and the subsequent anthrax attack. He has provided the mountains of evidence completely ignored by the US governments account and the presstitute media.

In his recently published latest book, Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World , Professor Griffin demonstrates how 9/11 was used by the Zionist Neoconservatives, the Cheney/Bush regime, and the military/security complex with the complicity of Congress and the US media to create Islamophobia among the American public in order to launch wars of aggression against Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, and provinces of Pakistan with Iran in the crosshairs. These wars are based on lies and fabricated evidence, on determination to control pipelines and oil flows, on maximizing profits for the military/security corporations in which Cheney has a personal interest, and on extending neoconservative hegemony over the world.

One consequence has been the destruction of US constitutional protections that protect liberty and violations of US and international law such as the laws against torture.

Another consequence has been millions of displaced refugees from Washingtons wars over-running the countries of Europe.

Indeed, Europe faces a Camp of the Saints situation, and the US now has a police state in which all citizens are subject to: indefinite detention (imprisonment) on suspicion alone without conviction or evidence presented to a court; assassination on suspicion alone without due process of law; and total violation of privacy, including body cavities, without presentation of a court warrant. American women are now subjected to having their vaginas examined by police in public on the roadside.

The hoax war on terror has turned America into a Gestapo state. Not many Americans directly experience the consequences, but they will be denied valid information as the Gestapo American state closes down all dissent on the grounds that it is harmful to national security. People who speak their minds will find that they no longer have First Amendment protection.

Is Your Shampoo Making You Sick? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

By Dr. Mercola

You may be mistakenly comforted by the perceived oversight by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over chemicals used in the manufacture of everyday products. For instance, the FDA prohibits the use of mercurychloroform and nine other substances in your personal care products. However, once you know the European Union (EU) prohibits the use of more than 1,300 chemicals in their personal care products, you may not feel as protected and you would be right.

The number of chemicals restricted by the FDA is even more ridiculous when you consider there are over 84,000 different chemicals in use in your personal care products and only 1 percent of those have been evaluated for safety in humans.1

The difference between chemical use in the EU and the U.S. is that in the EU manufacturers must prove chemicals are not a health hazard before they are allowed in products, whereas in the U.S. they can be added without mandatory safety testing and only removed after enough people have suffered to get the attention of watch groups or the FDA.

Women are at greater risk than men from exposure as they routinely use nearly double the number of products per day. Under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, products do not require FDA approval before being sold on the market.2 According to the FDA, the agency monitors safety reports on the products, although often the available information is limited and many consumers never report problems they experience.

If there is enough information to support a claim that the product causes harm, the FDA may ask for a court injunction, request the products are seized, initiate criminal action or request the company recall the product. However, they do not have the ability to force a recall.3 The very last thing you may expect to find in your shampoos, conditioners, facial washes or cosmetics is known carcinogens.

All stories have two sides, and The War for Southern Independence is no exception. This volume by Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook presents the Southern view. I was riveted as I was reading each page.

This volume is well researched and gives much food for thought and cause for reflection. Finally a work that sets the record straight on the War for Sothern Independence and the events which led up to it.This volume is a bargain at any price.

How Old Is Your Heart? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A study from Public Health England found that one in 10 men over the age of 50 have a heart that is 10 years older than their actual age. In the U.S., one in three deaths is attributed to cardiovascular disease. Every 40 seconds, one American dies as a result of cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease claims more lives than all forms of cancer and chronic lower respiratory disease combined. The unfortunate part is that cardiovascular disease can be prevented by adhering to a healthy lifestyle, yet many Americans are still falling victim to heart disease.

In response to the alarming number of individuals over the age of 50 being diagnosed with heart disease, there has been a health initiative created in the UK known as the Heart Age Test. The online or app survey takes less than five minutes and involves some simple yes or no questions that can help reveal the age of your heart.

Associate Professor Jamie Waterall explained, Its about empowering people to understand what action they can take. Cardiovascular diseases affecting the heart, brain, and blood vessels are a major cause of premature death and ill health, but theyre largely preventable.

Providing people with their heart age may make people aware that changes need to be made in a persons life.

What puts you at risk

Risk factors for heart disease are split into two categories: modifiable and non-modifiable. Modifiable risk factors include obesity and smoking, while non-modifiable risk factors include gender and age.

Another interesting aspect that the app includes is the use of your postal code. Where you live also plays a part in your heart health. For example, if you live in a rural area, you are less likely to be exposed to car pollution compared to someone in the city. Furthermore, stresses vary between countryside living and city dwelling. Lastly, where you live may also be an indication of your socioeconomic status, and it is known that those who live in poorer areas tend to have worse heart health.

If youre interested in learning how old your heart is, visit the One You website and answer the provided questions. They also have an additional resource that measures overall health, which asks questions more specific to diet, exercise, and other lifestyle habits.

In the meantime, the steps you can take to bring you closer to a healthier heart include being physically active, tackling obesity, monitoring and ...

Gay Couple Has Taken To Fake News Like Ducks To Water-- Alas, Trumpanzee Has Gays Too "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


What's your identity group? If you're Jewish and a Jew does something heinous or embarrassing, does that irk you even more than it would if someone whose identity group you're not part of did it? I love it that Mark Pocan, a gay man, has the best voting record in Congress and I'm embarrassed that a Kyrsten Sinema and Sean Patrick Maloney, both also gay, have two of the worst voting records of any congressional Democrats.

Gays knew. According to NYTimes exit polling Mitt Romney got nearly half the gay vote in 2012. Seor Trumpanzee didn't do quite so well. 14% of LGBT voters pulled the lever for Seor... very, very, very sick people, who were not just voting for Trump, but for the most psychotically obsessed homophobe in American politics, Mike Pence and his who murderous posse of mentally deranged misfits.

As I have repeatedly stressed, health care reform legislation ought to be the product of regular order in the Senate. Committees of jurisdiction should mark up legislation with input from all committee members, and send their bill to the floor for debate and amendment. That is the only way we might achieve bipartisan consensus on lasting reform, without which a policy that affects one-fifth of our economy and every single American family will be subject to reversal with every change of administration and congressional majority.

Sekulow: No UN Amb. Has Ever Made Even Half of the Unmasking Requests as Power Did in Their ENTIRE CAREER (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Former UN Ambassador Samantha Power unmasked more Americans in the last couple months of Obamas presidency than any other UN Ambassadors have done their ENTIRE CAREER.

As previously reported, The Washington Free Beacons Adam Kredo says Powers unmasking was done on an unprecedented scale. A new report by Fox News states Power sought to unmask Americans nearly every day. 

An attorney for Trump Jay Sekulow and his partner at the ACLJ Jordan Sekulow broke down Samantha Powers unprecedented unmasking requests on their Friday radio show. Jordan Sekulow points out that Powers unmasking was crammed in the last few weeks or perhaps days of the Obama administration which means she was unmasking dozens of people OR MORE in a single working day.

Sekulow puts Powers unmasking requests into context by comparing it to other UN Ambassadors of the past.

Her number of requests are unprecedented in the history of UN Ambassadors who also have the position to unmask, Jordan Sekulow began.

No other UN Ambassador has ever even made half of the requests Power made in their ENTIRE CAREER, let alone a few months.

Jordan Sekulow also wondered how many people Samantha Power unmasked the year before versus the election year.

GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona thinks polls showing Dr. Kelli Ward beating him in the Senate primary race are not relevant and said Thursday that incumbents always run behind in off-year elections.

Off year polls are always, incumbents are always down. Its not that those polls are inaccurate. Theyre probably accurate. You do ten of them youll get the same thing. Its just that theyre not very relevant right now, Flake said on Morning Joe.

Theres Russians everywhere!

AP is reporting that the Department of Homeland Security told election officials of 21 states that hackers targeted their systems last year.

AP, contacted every state election office on Friday. While not all of them responded immediately those that said they were targeted were Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

The government didnt say who was behind the hacks or what the hackers were looking for, however; the election officials said they believe the attempts could be linked to Russia.

Whatever that means.

Heres why this is more Russian fake news hysteria by the left in order to keep the Russian collusion hoax alive.

The vote tallying software wasnt breached.

According to AP, Federal officials said that in most of the 21 states, the targeting was preparatory activity such as scanning computer systems. The targets included voter registration systems but not vote tallying software. Officials said there were some attempts to compromise networks but most were unsuccessful.

Colorado election officials said the hacking attempt wasnt even an attack or a breach.

Its really reconnaissance by a bad guy to try and figure out how we would break into your computer, said Trevor Timmons, a spokesman for the Colorado secretary of states office. Its not an attack. I wouldnt call it a probe. Its not a breach, its not a penetration.

Furthermore, foreign countries trying to hack into our computer systems is nothing new. This report doesnt even say whether other countries such as China attempted to hack because that would cloud the Russians under every bed narrative.

The first time they heard every great song and every great band-- from U2 , Nirvana, Joan Jett and The Police to Van Halen, Heart and Bon Jovi-- that jolted their lives-- in a way few politicians ever can-- it was intimately, just them, their radio... and Dayna. Otherwise her latest endeavor-- taking on right-wing kook Brian Babin in a beet-red district-- would seem... quixotic. TX-36 went for Trump over Hillary 72% to 25%. The PVI is R+26. No Democrat has ever won an R+26 district before. With not even a nod in her direction from the DCCC, Dayna is starting the process of making history. Or, rather, she was starting that process when Harvey intruded on her life and on the lives of the people in her district. TX-36 was one of the hardest hit districts from this hurricane, ironic when you consider that Babin is a lunatic fringe and very aggressive Climate Science denier. When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, Dayna turned her congressional campaign into a relief and resources team. She's been working to help her neighbors ever since. Now it is our turn to lend a hand to Dayna. You can donate to her campaign to unseat Republican Brian Babin here.

FBI Misses THIRD Deadline to Hand Over Subpoenaed Documents On Trump Dossier "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A third deadline has now passed for the FBI and Justice Department to hand over subpoenaed documents to the House Intelligence Committee relating to the debunked Russian dossier.

The big question is, did the FBI actually use this garbage dossier to obtain a FISA warrant like reports suggest?

CNN reported Monday that Obamas FBI indeed wiretapped Trumps campaign manager, Paul Manafort before, during and after the 2016 presidential election. CNN is even admitting that Trump himself may have been caught up in the surveillance.

The Obama FBI used a secret court order to wiretap Manafort. We the people deserve to know if the debunked dossier was used to obtain this FISA warrant in order to spy on Trumps camp.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes originally set a Sept. 1 deadline for production of the dossier documents. The FBI did not comply. Nunes then extended the deadline to Sept. 14. The FBI did not comply. Then Nunes extended the deadline again, to Sept. 22. Now, again, the FBI has not complied.

Theres a lot at stake. Nunes is currently traveling in the Middle East, so it is not clear what the next step will be, or when it will happen. But so far, the FBI and the Justice Department do not appear to be in the mood to comply with the subpoena.
 What we do know is that Comey cited this dossier in some of his briefings:

Since Hillary Clinton can no longer sell influence and power in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation, she has to come up with new and exciting ways to fleece the sheep.

Two-time loser (3 times if you include the re-count) Hillary has been begging for donations to fund the resistance since May by asking for donations on her site (starting at $5.00) and she has yet to donate a dime to the cause.

The Onward Together website has only two pages. A landing page and a donation page.

An email signed by Hillary Clinton asking supporters for MORE MONEY last week attempted to explain away her lack of action as of late. You may not have heard much about the work were doing at Onward Together. Thats because were working behind the scene to fund, support, and amplify the work of the groups were supporting. Were not the story: they are.

Screenshot of the email provided by The Daily Caller:

The Daily Caller also reached out to the five political groups Hillary said she would be partnering with: Indivisible, Swing Left, Color of Change, Emerge America and Run for Something. None of the groups would confirm that Onward Together has financially supported them.

Onward Together has not given any financial support to us, Helen Kalla, an Indivisible spokesperson, wrote in an email.

Psycho Woman Verbally Assaults Vet for Bringing Service Dog into Restaurant Then Claims SHE is the Victim of Racism "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Earlier this week an outraged psycho woman was caught on video verbally assaulting a veteran with a service dog at Kathys Crab House in Delaware.

The woman screamed at the veteran and the restaurant staff.

She really lost it when someone told her the man fought for her country.

The woman can be heard screaming at the veteran about his service dog.

The crazed woman does not work at the restaurant.

This was a disgusting display.
The abusive woman was OUT OF HER MIND!

Miller has posted a video obtained by TMZ (below) in which she explains what she claims really happened leading up to the viral tirade. According to Miller, before her recorded meltdown at Kathys Crab House in Delaware.

BREAKING Ann Coulter Backs Out of Berkeley Free Speech Week "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the much hyped Berkeley Free Speech Week, set to start this upcoming Monday, has hit a number of roadblocks and now is most likely not going to take place.

Ann Coulter just told the Associated Press that she will not be showing up to Berkeley free speech week.

Organizers knew that the event would not actually happen as scheduled. This information was not shared with the public and only a select few knew about it. Rather than hold the event as it was previously advertised, a Saturday press conference is reported to happen.

NBC reports:

Confusion continues to surround Free Speech Week at UC Berkeley two days before events are scheduled to kick off.

While some media are reporting that the Berkeley Patriot, the student organization hosting the four-day conservative political event, have called it off, British right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, one of the event headliners, posted on Facebook that its going on.

The university plans to spend a million dollars on security.

Uncertainty continues to loom over the events speakers, as well as the venues, with a number of unconfirmed speakers currently listed on the roster, the highlights of which include former White House chief strategist Bannon, and controversial political commentator Ann Coulter. Coulter told the Associated Press Friday shes not coming.

Magnata americana antimuulmanos promove extrema-direita na Alemanha com notcias falsas "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A ascenso do Alternativa para a Alemanha, o novo partido poltico de extrema-direita que concorre s prximas eleies federais no pas, desestabilizou a poltica moderada e de consenso que caracterizou a Alemanha ps-guerra, usando retrica anti-imigrao e antimuulmana, nacionalismo ostensivo e gestual que remete ao passado nazista.

Observadores internacionais das eleies esperavam que viesse da Rssia uma onda de notcias falsas e postagens polmicas nas mdias sociais em apoio ao Alternativa para a Alemanha, conhecido por suas iniciais em alemo, AfD. Um dos maiores produtores de contedo online favorvel ao partido, no entanto, um site norte-americano financiado pela filantropa judia Nina Rosenwald.

O site de Rosenwald, chamado Instituto Gatestone, publica um fluxo contante de contedo sensacionalista sobre a eleio alem, alimentando principalmente temores sobre imigrantes e muulmanos. Em um dos posts mais recentes, o site alerta para a construo de mesquitas na Alemanha e afirma que o cristianismo est sendo extinto.

Os posts do Instituto, que muitas vezes so traduzidos para o alemo, costumam ser promovidos por polticos do AfD e por grupos de mdias sociais relacionados ao partido para justificar sua cruzada contra a poltica da chanceler Angela Merkel de manter portas abertas aos refugiados.

Uma histria que se tornou viral alegava que a Alemanha estaria confiscando casas para uso dos migrantes. O artigo foi compartilhado por apoiadores do AfD, incluindo Thomas Rudy, um importante poltico do partido no estado de Turngia, na Alemanha central. O texto dizia que casas desocupadas em Hamburgo estariam sendo confiscadas pelas autoridades locais como alternativa para abrigar as centenas de milhares de migrantes da frica, sia e Oriente Mdio.

TOM FITTON: Mueller is Setting Up His Own Justice Department, Shut it Down "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

MISSION CREEP.

President of conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton has repeatedly called for the Mueller witch hunt of Trump and his associates to be shut down as it is unconstitutional and unsupervised.

Muellers team of lawyers is so big and powerful now that Fitton described it as the Special Counsels own Justice Department. This is all thanks to AG Jeff Sessions recusing himself.

In response to a Daily Beast article titled Bob Mueller Brings on Tough Guy Stephen Kelly to Handle Capitol Hill, Fitton said, Bob Mueller setting up his own Justice Department. Shut it down.

The Daily Beast article says Mueller has now brought on a liaison to Capitol Hill:

Having hired a host of seasoned federal prosecutors for his probe of the presidents associates, Bob Mueller has now brought on a liaison to Capitol Hill.

Stephen Kelly, formerly the longtime congressional affairs chief for the FBI, has joined the probe, according to several sources familiar with his new role.

Stephen Kelly is exactly who I would hire if I wanted to share as little information with Congress as possible, said a Hill staffer who has interacted with Kelly in his new role as Muellers congressional liaison.

Robert Mueller also just hired his SEVENTEENTH liberal hack lawyer to investigate Trump. The latest hack is an Obama/Hillary donor.

U.S. Ambassador to India: Who Is Kenneth Juster? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Kenneth Ian Juster, who served on Donald Trumps economic team, but fell out of favor early in the administration, was nominated September 1, 2017, to be ambassador to India, after having been rumored for several months to be the appointee. If hes confirmed, it will be his first such assignment.

 

Juster was born November 24, 1952, in New York and grew up in Scarsdale, New York, where his mother taught at the local high school. Juster attended Greenacres Elementary School there, and in sixth grade was able to interview Mick Jagger for the school paper. Juster attended Scarsdale High School, from which he graduated in 1972. He went on to Harvard, earning a B.A. in 1976 and then his law degree and a masters in public policy in 1980.

 

Juster took a job with the influential law firm Arnold & Porter in 1981. Among his clients was deposed Panamanian president Eric Delvalle, who went into exile after the rise of Manuel Noriega. Juster joined the George H.W. Bush administration in 1989, first as deputy to then-Deputy Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger and then in 1992 as acting counselor for the State Department. He returned to Arnold & Porter after Bush lost his bid for re-election.

 

When George W. Bush moved into the White House in 2001, Juster was back in government, this time as under secretary of commerce for the Bureau of Industry and Security. He served as U.S. chair of the U.S.-India High Technology Cooperation Group, and was instrumental in the Next Steps in Strategic Partnership initiative between the United States and India, which led to a civil nuclear agreement between the nations. This experience, and subsequent dealings with India, make Juster perhaps more qualified for his post than most non-State Department ambassadorial appointees.

 

Juster left government service in 2005 to become executive vice president for law, policy and corporate strategy at Salesforce.com, a San Francisco-based software company. In 2010, Juster moved to equity firm Warburg Pincus as a partner and managing director. This relationship may prove troublesome for Juster in his new job; Warburg Pincus began increasing its Indian holdings shortly after Justers name was floated for the post. Juster will have to step carefully to avoid conflicts of interest as ambassador. While at Warburg Pincus, Juster also served as chairman of Freedom House, a non-governmental organization that conducts research and advocacy...

Trumps UN tirade "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The logic of imperialism

22 September 2017

In 1938 Leon Trotsky warned that imperialism toboggans with closed eyes toward an economic and military catastrophe. Within just a year of these remarks, Hitler unleashed his army against a largely defenseless Poland and set into motion the cataclysm of the second imperialist world war.

Trotskys words acquire renewed relevance in the aftermath of Donald Trumps tirade at the United Nations, where the US president openly threatened the launching of a genocidal war, using language that has not been heard since the days of the Third Reich.

If nothing more was involved than the ranting of a madman, Trumps threat to totally destroy North Korea would have been met with a chorus of denunciations in the mass media and throughout the political establishment. But nothing of the sort has taken place. What is most striking is the mildness of the response, particularly within the American political establishment and its major media outlets. To the extent that the speech has encountered criticism, it has taken the form of quibbling with some of Trumps more grotesque rhetorical excesses or questioning the tactical expediency...

As previously reported, Hillary Clinton is in overdrive peddling her books What Happened and It Takes a Village in an effort to bilk more sheep of their money since her lucrative business laundering money through the Clinton Foundation is coming to an end.

The Gateway Pundit received such an overwhelming response to the video that we decided to do a follow-up to the original post. What disturbed our readers more than Hillary using children to push leftist propaganda was that a young girl was wearing short shorts and a crop top with her tummy exposed while she danced.

ERICK ERICKSON SAYS THAT IF A TRUMP CABINET MEMBER IS KILLED, IT'S JIMMY KIMMEL'S FAULT "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

If there were still any polar ice caps, Erick Erickson's scorching-hot take on health and human services secretary Tom Price's profligate use of private planes would melt them all:

Liberals Are Upset Tom Price Has Made It Challenging to Try to Kill Him

I am old enough to remember James Hodgkinson, driven by insanity and leftwing rhetoric (but I repeat myself) on Obamacare, attempting a mass assassination of Republican members of Congress.

I am old enough to remember liberals attacking Trump supporters with Make America Great Again hats on right after the election.

I am old enough to remember Antifa protestors attacking police officers just a few weeks ago.

And I am old enough to remember the left declaring that anyone who helps Trump is a white supremacist who can be attacked on moral grounds.
See what he does there? He lists examples of actual political violence by specific left-leaning groups and individuals, then claims to have observed "the left declaring that anyone who helps Trump is a white supremacist who can be attacked," as if we had a meeting of the Progressive Politburo and voted to make physical violence against conservatives mandatory for all card-carrying lefties.

But Erickson was talking about Tom Price.
So it is really damn rich to watch reporters and liberal activists complaining about the Secretary of Health and Human Services taking private flights while on the job. The left has not only become increasingly violent, but they have started grounding their violence in the language of moralism.
In 2010, Erickson threatened to pull a shotgun on census workers, and he grounded that threat in "the language of moralism":
... Erickson said he would pull out [his] wifes shotgun if a census worker came to try to jail him for not filling out his census form.

This is crazy, Erickson said ... on WMACs In the Morning with Erick Erickson of the census. What gives the Commerce Department the right to ask me how often I flush my toilet? Or about going to work? Im not filling out this form. I dare them to try and come throw me in jail. I dare them to. Pull out my wifes shotgun and see how that little ACS twerp likes being scared at the door. Theyre not going on my property. They cant do that. They dont have the legal right, and yet theyre trying.
After Erickson said that, should every census taker in America have had the right to fly in private planes paid for by the government?

Queer Life Through the Ages "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Most people have never heard of Charles W. Leslie or J. Frederic Fritz Lohman. Its a shame when you work so long over 50 years to shape a culture and remain largely unappreciated. Simply put, queer art would not be what it is today without these men. The couple saved works that would have otherwise been thrown away, and created a collection of more than 30,000 pieces, according to a press release. In 1987, their gallery became a nonprofit, and by 2011, Leslie (Lohman died in 2009) had a museum on his hands the first of its kind, their website tells us. Expanded Visions celebrates their achievements.

It would have made more sense to call it Queer Life Through the Ages, because thats what youre getting. Sophia Wallaces 2009 photo Untitled (Ena and Sin) and Arthur Hammers 2005 oil painting Jack and Harvey are quite striking in this respect. Wallaces features two topless women embracing. We dont know what their relationship is, but their smiles make us think theyre thrilled to have found each other. Its an intimate piece, but we dont feel like were intruding. Rather, were meant to be standing there, cheering them on, as Annie Leibovitzs influence shines through.

Jack and Harvey is a portrayal of Jack Franks and Harvey Moledzky, a couple who first met in 1962. They appear content, but also have defensive body language and dont touch. This not touching, we are told, Was typical for queer couples of their generation when seen in public.

DCCC Loses One Of Their Candidates Already "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Erin Cole, the DCCC choice to run against western New York state Trumpist, Chris Collins, withdrew from the race Monday. The DCCC flavor of the cycle is women army veterans, which Cole was, so Ben Ray Lujan and his DC crew of imbeciles probably need a hug this week. NY-27 is a hellish district stretching from the suburbs east of Buffalo to the suburbs west and south of Rochester. Last year the PVI was R+8 (easily the worst in the state)and it's even worse this year-- R+11!). Obama lost both times and last year Seor Trumpanzee beat Hillary 59.7% to 35.2%, the only district in the state where she failed to break 40%.

Collins' Democratic opponent last year, Diana Kastenbaum, was ignored by the DCCC and only managed 107,832 votes (32.8%) against Collins' 220,885 (67.2%). He spent $582,459 and she didn't raise the $5,000 that would have required an FEC report. Cole was the only declared candidate this cycle.
Cole didn't return a phone call seeking comment. Other Democratic sources said was she frustrated with fundraising and other challenges that often trouble first-time political candidates.

"What I'm gathering is that jumping in the deep end can be difficult for first-time candidates, and she just concluded that the race was not for her," said Judith Hunter, the Livingston County Democratic chair who also chairs  Turn 27 Blue, a coalition of county Democratic leaders and progressive activists who've come together to try to defeat Collins, a Clarence Republican.

A 32-year-old undocumented immigrant was charged with sexually assaulting a six-year-old girl after her father found the stranger in bed with her in the middle of the night, police say.

Edgar Mendoza, a citizen of Guatemala, allegedly broke into a home early Tuesday morning on Bayard Street in the Chambersburg section of Trenton, New Jersey, The Trentonian reported.

Police say in the affidavit that the childs father noticed that a light had been turned off upstairs and went to investigate.

The concerned father walked into his daughters room to find Mendoza in her bed, authorities say.

Mendoza leaped up and then jumped from a second-floor window and fled on foot into the neighborhood, police say.

Former Navy Sailor Saucier: Its Unfair That I Was Jailed But Hillary Clinton Walks Free (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Photo is a handout given to Fox News

Former Navy sailor Kristian Sauciers family heard some good news during an interview President Trump had with Fox News Sean Hannity in January.

In the exclusive interview with Fox News, President Trump said that he was considering pardoning Saucier for taking photos while inside a nuclear submarine.

During his 2016 campaign for President Trump said he believed the one year sentence being served by Saucier was harsh.

From Fox News:

Im actually looking at it right now, Trump told Hannity. I think its very unfair in light of whats happened with other people.

Sadie Saucier, who Friday morning was preparing to visit her husband at the Federal Medical Center at Fort Devens, Mass., where he has been held since October, said the words gave her hope.

Oh my God, Im hoping its for real, Sadie Saucier told Fox News Friday morning as she was preparing to visit her husband at the Federal Medical Center at Fort Devens, Mass., where he has been held since October. Im confident in Trump.

On Friday Kristian Saucier told Varney and Co. he still hopes for a presidential pardon.

Saucier also said it is not fair that he served a year for taking 4 photos from inside a US submarine but Hillary Clinton is still a free woman walking the streets and pushing a new book.

Islamophobic U.S. Mega-Donor Fuels German Far-Right Party With Viral Fake News "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The rise of Alternative for Germany, the new far-right political party competing in the upcoming federal election, has unsettled the consensus-driven, moderate politics of postwar Germany with its rabid anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric, unabashed nationalism, and winking gestures embracing the countrys Nazi past.

Election-watchers expected a flood of fake news and inflammatory social media aiding Alternative for Germany, known by its German initials, AfD, to come from Russia. But one of the major publishers of online content friendly to the far-right party is an American website financed in large part and lead by Jewish philanthropist Nina Rosenwald.

Rosenwalds site, the Gatestone Institute, publishes a steady flow of inflammatory content about the German election, focused on stoking fears about immigrants and Muslims. In one of the most recent posts, the website warns of the construction of mosques in Germany and claims that Christianity is becoming extinct.

The Gatestone posts, which are often translated into German, are regularly promoted by AfD politicians and AfD-related social media groups to justify the partys crusade against Chancellor Angela Merkels open-door refugee policy.

One viral Gatestone story claimed that Germany was confiscating homes to use for migrants. The piece which was shared by AfD supporters, including Thomas Rudy, a senior AfD politician in the central German state of Thuringia claimed that vacant homes in Hamburg were seized by local authorities seeking new housing solutions for the hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

The article closed with a question about what might happen next: Will authorities now limit the maximum amount of living space per person, and force those with large apartments to share them with strangers?

Local German press, however, condemned the Gatestone story as false. A single house in Hamburg went into temporary trusteeship after several apartments at the home remained vacant. Refugees did not play a role in the districts decision, fact-checking website Correctiv...

Is The Kremlin Working To Turn Out An Audience For Trump And Strange In Alabama This Week? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Friday or Saturday (depending on if you're paying attention to Trumpanzee's tweets or to Luther Strange's campaign announcements], Trumpanzee is traipsing off to Huntsville to campaign for appointed incumbent Republican Senator Luther Strange, who is currently running several points behind far right psychopath Roy Moore (Bannon's candidate). Tuesday is the Republican primary runoff. Moore led in the first round and the 3rd place candidate, Mo Brooks, endorsed Moore last week.

Tuesday, Breitbart reported that the White House political department is flipping out in the fear that Trump won't draw a big enough crowd to satisfy his ego (and that he'll fire someone-- as he did after the debacle in Phoenix, where Bernie drew 4 times as many people as he did).

They already took down the size of the venue, from the Madison City Stadium, where Trump last stopped in Huntsville to the Von Braun Center's Propst Arena, which only holds 9,000 people. [Bretibart's reporting, as usual, is screwy on this since the Madison City Stadium is actually the slightly smaller venue.] The poorly-written report claims that "White House aides" told then that "they were worried about turning out a large crowd size for Trump, given they know the president has already given his endorsement and that he and the Vice President Mike Pence are campaigning for the establishment candidate against the presumed anti-establishment candidate."].

We'll get better Supreme Court justices under Pence; we won't have to worry about Nikki Haley being sent to the Supreme Court at least."

The new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found that "only a third of the public believes Trump has accomplished much as president, and fewer than 30 percent back his handling of health care, race relations and the violent episode in Charlottesville." The only thing the public likes about his tenure in office so far-- by an overwhelming 71% to 8% margin-- was his outreach to Chuck and Nancy on government funding. On everything else-- from North Korea and Climate Change to Joe Arpaio, healthcare and race relations, the public is giving a big collective thumbs down.

COULD THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT WIN OVER THE ALT-RIGH? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


I'm sure I don't have to tell you that Roy Moore -- soon to be the junior senator from Alabama -- really loves God:

Controversial former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore warned that America was falling apart because of things like transgender troops in the military.


The comments came shortly after he said he wanted to free the country and military from political correctness and social experimentation like transgender troops in our bathrooms.
Last week on the campaign trail, there was this:
The man most likely to be Alabamas next senator told his supporters late last week that rape, murder and child abuse are on the rise and are so because of Americans lack of faith....

Moore later read one of his poems about how America is falling apart.

Some choice lines:

Babies piled in dumpsters, abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty, your house is on the sand.

Weve voted in governments that are rotting to the core,
Appointing Godless judges who throw reason out the door.
Too soft to put a killer in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill that child before he leaves the womb.

You think that Gods not angry, that our lands a moral slum?
How much longer will it be before His judgment comes?
We've been told that the new right doesn't have much use for the Christian right, but at Breitbart, John Nolte is lavishing praise on Moore:
Time and again, I heard people say of Trump, I dont agree with everything he says, but Im damn glad he is saying it.

That statement reveals a key part of Trumps appeal. Even those who were not completely onboard with him policy-wise or with the Birther stuff, they still understood that Trump was freeing our society, breaking the despotic chains of political correctness, making it okay to not whisper....

Every Single Hot Girl Under 26 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

This is a guest post by Kid Strangelove. Kid originally published this article at his own blog, but he deleted the site a while ago so he could focus on other projects. He asked me if Id be willing to re-post some of his articles on my blog and I said yes.

Let me tell you some things about every single hot girl under the age of 26:

  • They have 75 cousins, 67 college friends, and 32 high school friends visiting NYC at any given time.
  • They have the most demanding work schedules, often having to work way late thanks to their asshole bosses.
  • They have twelve friends that recently got dumped by their asshole boyfriends and are completely devastated, so they need to be comforted.
  • They have the health and immune system of Mr. Glass from the movie Unbreakable (one of Samuel L. Jacksons more underrated performances).

As you can see, hot girls under the age of 26 have incredibly busy lives and its a damn miracle if you can hang out with one at all

until you fuck them and fuck them hard. Then all of the things above mysteriously disappear. Funny, isnt it?

I slipped last night. I forgot how busy these hot young girls are before you fuck them hard (unless youre a Yankee, that seems to have the same effect as fucking them hard), and made plans to meet this hot 22-year old at 8PM. She texts me at 7:50 apologizing profusely about how she couldnt make it. However, at 7:50 I was on the subway heading over to meet her, so I only got the text right as I arrived, with my trademark perfect timing, at 8PM.

And I wasnt mad at her. Its 2012. A hot thin young girl you havent fucked hard yet flaking on you is to be expected. Wait, did I say flaking? I meant the myriad of valid reasons she has for cancelling the date I described above.

I was mad at myself for not making backup plans and letting this put a damper on my evening. It was a Tuesday night, and everything in NYC that isnt in the Meatpacking District (where the party starts at midnight no matter what) just had dive bars with the happy hour crowd already clearing out. It was rather depressing, really.

Always have a backup plan.

How Exxon Mobil May Soon Have Greater Sway Over Science Used in EPA Policies "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Exxon Mobil may soon have a greater hand in shaping the science used to develop major environmental regulations.

The published list of potential names for the Science Advisory Board and the EPA Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee includes many industry representatives and consultants. The panels are typically composed primarily of independent academics and researchers charged with reviewing agency science and advising the Environmental Protection Agency on major policy decisions.

While industry has always had a voice on those panels, comments from the Trump administration and the potential new appointees suggest the balance may soon change in favor of greater power for regulated companies, particularly the oil and gas industries.

The long list of potential new advisory board members includes officials from Exxon Mobil, Phillips 66, Alcoa, Noble Energy, Total, and the American Chemistry Council, a lobbying group for the chemical industry. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt will make the final determination to select the members of the panels.

In a move widely viewed as an attempt to make room for more industry representatives, the EPA in May dismissed at least five academic researchers from their position on the SAB. The administrator believes we should have people on this board who understand the impact of regulations on the regulated community, an EPA spokesperson told the New York Times.

Steve Milloy, a former Trump transition official, told E&E News that he believes the scientific advisory panels will be significantly reconstituted to include more industry representatives and those in the industry-backed think tank world that have held hostile views to previous EPA decisions.

The list of potential new hires to the scientific advisory boards suggest such changes may soon happen.

Jeffrey Lewis, an Exxon Mobil in-house scientist, has been floated to serve on both the SAB and CASAC scientific panels. Lewis has developed cost-benefit analysis and other regulatory filings to challenge the scientific standard used in previous years to formulate limits on air pollution. His current professional biography notes that he works in ExxonMobils regulatory affairs team code for lobbying on a variety of environmental health issu...

Janet Yellen and Federal Reserve Halt Stock Market Rally Indicate They May Raise Rates Again This Year "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

On August 12th we reported that chief economist Brian Wesbury said that only thing stopping additional 40% stock gains over the next two years under President Trump would be excessive Fed Funds rate hikes or a tightening federal monetary policy.

Yesterday after another seven days in a row of all time stock market highs, the Fed and Janet Yellen indicated that they may raise rates again before the end of the year.  This ended the upward market rally.

Brian Wesbury joined Stuart Varney in August on Varney and Co. to discuss the Trump economy. Wesbury argued that the stock market will see great gains in the next two years.  He also noted that the only thing that could sideline these increases would be related to actions by the Fed:

Brian Wesbury: The number one cause of recessions in the Federal Reserve. When they raise rates too much, when they tighten monetary policy too much. Right now the fed has $2 trillion of excess reserves in the banking system and until they get them out they are not going to be running a tight monetary policy. Therefore I would say the odds of recession are extremely low.

The only other item that Wesbury believes could stop the Trump economy are tax hikes which under President Trump are very unlikely.

Via Varney and Co.:


Wesbury was right.

Since 2000, the Federal Reserve increased the Fed Funds rate excessively under President Bush between 2004 and 2006.  These excessive increases led up to the 2008 recession and may have at least partially influenced the economic disaster at that time.

BREAKING: Much Hyped Berkeley Free Speech Week Unlikely to Happen "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The much hyped Berkeley Free Speech Week, set to start this upcoming Monday, has hit a number of roadblocks and now is most likely not going to take place.

Organizers knew that the event would not actually happen as scheduled. This information was not shared with the public and only a select few knew about it. Rather than hold the event as it was previously advertised, a Saturday press conference is reported to happen.

The Gateway Pundits Lucian Wintrich prefaced his breakdown of the event by stating that he appreciates as Milo as a friend. As a conservative who believes in maintaining open dialogue of ideas, Lucian was excited at the initial prospect of the event but was very disappointed that it was not going to go down as planned.  As a conservative who believes in maintaining open dialogue of ideas, this was a major issue.

Heres What Real Tax Reform Looks Like "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

President Donald Trump will not succeed in carrying out any significant tax reform, but it is likely that he and the Republican majority in Congress will further skew the existing tax structure to benefit the rich, the top 1 percert, at the expense of everyone else. This will continue the policies that have made the federal tax system significantly less progressive over the past several decades and thus contributed to increasing income inequality.

The fundamental cause of that growing inequality is that the income created by the increase in productivity that has taken place over the past 40 years has gone almost exclusively to capital, while wages have remained stagnant.

In contrast, the growth in productivity between 1945 and 1975 led to increases in both wages and profits. The main cause of this is the globalization of production, as multinational corporations transfer work to countries with much lower wages. Workers in the United States, however, have suffered more than those of many other developed countries such as Canada. The assault on the working class has worked systematically at both federal and state levels to undermine working-class organizations, in particular, trade unions. It has defeated hard-won restrictions on the power of money to influence elections, such as in the Supreme Courts 2010 Citizens United decision that granted free speech rights to corporations and thus abolished limits on their financing of electoral campaigns.

The federal income taxs structure is indeed progressive, as it requires those with higher incomes to pay a higher percentage of their income in taxes. Technically, they must pay 39.6 percent of their income in taxes, but the percentage that they actually pay is much lower.

While the top rate remained at 35 percent, the deductions that corporations can claim have allowed many to avoid paying any corporate income tax at all.

First, that percentage applies only to the portion of their income above the threshold for the highest tax bracket. A single person who makes $1 million has to pay the 39.6 percent rate only on the part over $418,400. They pay 10 percent on the first $9,325, the same rate as a minimum-wage worker, with the percentage rising in each higher bracket. (This top rate was 91 percent in the 1950s and stood at 70 percent through the 1970s, before Ronald Reagan cut it to 33 percent.) Second, the rate is a percentage of taxable income. The rich, like everyone else, are allowed to claim deductions that reduce the amount of their income thats taxable, such as the standard deduction available to all taxpayers. There are many other deductions available that primarily benefit the 1 percent, however. The biggest is the deduction for interest paid on home mortgages. The rich have much more valuable houses, and the one-third of hous...

A US Trade War With China? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

If the Trump administration puts sanctions on China, this would hurt America more because it just forces China and Russia and other countries to cooperate, says investor and financial commentator Jim Rogers.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warned on Tuesday that the US could impose economic sanctions on China if it does not implement the new sanctions regime against North Korea, saying that the restrictions could involve cutting off Beijings access to the US financial system.

If China doesnt follow these sanctions, we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the US and international dollar system, and thats quite meaningful, Mnuchin said at the Delivering Alpha Conference in New York City.

The UN Security Council unanimously approved a resolution banning North Koreas textile exports and capping its oil imports following Pyongyangs sixth nuclear test conducted last week.

RT spoke to famous investor, author, and financial commentator Jim Rogers to discuss global perspectives in the case of the US imposing sanctions on China.

RT: What is the likelihood that the US will go through with and actually impose economic sanctions on China if it does not implement the new sanctions regime against North Korea?

Jim Rogers: Sanctions are sanctions. They could do sanctions which are not very important or dont do much damage. And then they will have good public relations which says they have sanctions, but it is meaningless. I would suspect if anything, that is what they will start with. If they put sanctions on China in a big way, it brings the whole world economy down. And in the end, it hurts America more than it hurts China because it just forces China and Russia and other countries closer together. Russia and China and other countries are already trying to come up with a new financial system. If America puts sanctions on them, they would have to do it that much faster and in the end America will lose its monopoly on the financial system, which will hurt America more than anybody.

RT: What do you think, is it an empty rhetoric and saber-rattling from Donald Trump because he said those [UN] sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen without specifying what he meant by that. Do you think this is just mere bluff on the part of the US, or would it really use the nuclear option?

If Milo is the New Face of the American Right "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A few days ago I brought home from our local library, nestled in Pennsylvania Dutch country, Milo Yiannopouloss self-published livre de scandale.

Dangerous is supposedly dynamite, because even Milos putative adversary Bill Maher praises the author as a young, gay alive Christopher Hitchens. Milo promises that anyone who makes it through his book can learn how to fight back against campus commies, their enabling professors, the mainstream media, and establishment Republican bores. All one needs to acquire this ability is Milos text, providing the reader can get though his frenetic prose centered on his activities as a self-promoting gadfly.

Time to buy old US gold coins

Ill concede two things to Milo. One, unlike his erstwhile patron, the sulky Steve Bannon, he can turn a phrase; and although much of what he writes is vacuous, he says what he sets out to say with wit and verve. Two, he has spent much of his young, tumultuous life courting friends who could advance his career as some kind of conservative celebrity, from Bannon and the staff at Breitbart to David Horowitz and more recently, Tucker Carlson. Im less impressed by the fact that Milos dashed around on campuses, challenging academic political correctness in the name of his notion of self-liberation. His adventures have not exactly been life-imperiling. So-called conservative speakers are invited to what are called institutions of higher learning by local Republican organizations, and these organizations, together with Washington-based groups, help pay for their trip and expenses. Since these appearances are likely to create a ruckus and cause demonstrations, provisions are made to protect the speakers. But if the situation looks really threatening, then the presentation is cancelled, and the snubbed conservative (as a lavish consolation prize) is invited on to Fox News to tell his story. As someone who spent more than 40 years battling the PC and other intolerant Lefts on American campuses, without the slightest assistance from Republicans or the conservative media, I am hardly bedazzled by Milos daring or showmanship.

As a historian of the American conservative movement, I dove into Milos book because I was interested in what it conveyed about the Alt-Right, but my interest quickly dissipated after I read the relevant remarks. I would gather that there used to be an original Alt-Right, which was the most exciting, dynamic and effective right-wing to emerge since the Tea Party. This creation was so good that even an Israeli-supporting former Tea Party member was in those days just as likely to be drawn to it as a Richard Spencer-devotee. Unfortunately its never made clear what this wonderful thing was befor...

Americas Great Game "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I meant to make a new nation

        T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom (1922)

I had formed a beautiful and gracious image and I saw it melting before my eyes.I did not think I could bear to see the evaporation of the dream which had guided me.

It was in this world made of failed British utopians such as Lawrence and Bell, those who were doing the work of the imperialists, into which America entered.

Americas Great Game: The CIAs Secret Arabists and the Shaping of the Modern Middle East, by Hugh Wilford

This is a story of the early American Arabists, those who made the first moves into the region that was dominated by British and French colonialists, beginning, for the most part, during World War Two.  (Yes, they were initially Arabists, not Zionists.)

We are introduced to several characters: Kermit Kim Roosevelt Jr., Chief of CIA covert operations in the Middle East and grandson of Teddy; Archibald B. Roosevelt, Jr., CIA officer and also grandson of Teddy and Kims cousin; Miles Copeland, a friend of the cousins; a long list of American anti-Zionists; numerous Arab, Jewish, and British leaders.

Time to buy old US gold coins

When Wilford began the research for this book, he was surprised by two things: first, such a book a comprehensive look at Americas covert actions in the Middle East had not previously been written; second, the first Americans on the scene were favorably disposed to the Arabs and Muslims.

We will see how comprehensive a work Wilford has achieved in the coming weeks; as to the second point, I will note a curious similarity to the British position not in London but for those on the ground, and certainly true in Palestine: overall, the British on the ground were favorably disposed, relatively, to the Arabs.

Wilford notes the domestic Arabist, anti-Zionist citizen network covertly funded by Kim Roosevelt; the large body of published memoirs of CIA Arabists.  The stories behind these will be interesting.

So, what changed?  What happened to turn this pro-Arab, pro-Muslim view into precisely the opposite?  It is a question Wilford recognizes that he must address.  For now, he summarizes: fears of Arab nationalistic leaders and communism; western access to Middle East oil; growing support in the US for Israel (for which he mentions the so-called Israel lobby).

Cars Are Infested With Little Brothers "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Every new car is infested with Little Brothers in the form of code and programming that corrects outright or thwarts whatever it is you wanted to do.

It goes way beyond the Seat Belt Nanny.

Have you tried backing up a new car with the drivers door cracked open? Several wont allow it refusing to engage Reverse until you close the door. You can try all day to move the shifter into Reverse but programming controls whether the transmission will comply. Its all drive-by-wire now, you see. So no direct, mechanical connection between the gear selector and the transmission. When you select a gear, you are merely asking the computer to engage Drive or Reverse and the computer is the ultimate Decider, not you.

But why would you want to back the car up with the door open? Not that it is anyones business certainly not an insolent computers but thats how people used to be taught to Reverse in close quarters, because you could see better. The curb, for example. Of course, this entailed some judgment and motor skills which are now lacking and certainly not taught. Instead, people are taught to gape at a screen rather than actually look in the direction theyre backing the car up.

And if you try it the old school way, Little Brother will step in to correct you. The transmission shifts itself into Neutral and in some cars the electronic parking brake engages.

Speaking of that. . .

The computer-controlled eBrake is replacing the traditional driver-controlled pull-up emergency brake.  Unlike the pull-up brake controlled by the driver, which can be partially and gradually engaged as the driver likes, the eBrake is either all the way on or all the way off your role limited to pushing the button.

And sometimes, not even that.

In several new cars, the eBrake turns itself on, automatically whenever the shift lever is moved to Park. Or when you try to Reverse with the door open a crack.

Yes, really.

Speaking of stopping. . .

Automatic Stop/Start is another  feature I dont think many of us actually asked for but which is nonetheless becoming part of the new car standard equipment roster. It turns the engine off even though you prefer it to be running one assumes, since you havent turned it off.

Trump, We Hardly Knew Ye "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

It was probably pretty naive to ever suspect that a billionaire reality television star could actually be any kind of populist. Before his 2016 presidential campaign, I felt the same way about Donald Trump that I feel about every billionaire, and was repelled by his sleazy, arrogant public persona.

But candidate Trump said some things that no other presidential candidate ever has. He criticized the embarrassing state of our crumbling infrastructure. He called out the media for its blatant dishonesty, and made the term fake news a national sensation. He was the first politician since before World War II to declare that we should take care of Americas many problems first. He lambasted a foreign policy bent on nation building and lamented the waste of trillions of dollars on senseless wars.

Trump became the first presidential candidate in any party, major or minor, to make illegal immigration one of the centerpieces of his platform. He spoke out on behalf of families whod lost loved ones to illegal immigrant criminals that were somehow permitted to remain in this country despite a slew of violent crimes. He promised to end the diabolical H 1-B Visa worker program. Creating a masterful symbol for crowds to rally around, Trump promised to build a wall, and that Mexico would pay for it.

Trump brought up the clear and obvious connections between vaccines and autism, and stories broke early into his administration that he was forming a special commission to investigate these connections, chaired by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. He even promised to audit the Federal Reserve, and apparently mentioned the collapse of Building 7, which was a primary signal to those in the know that he harbored at least some truther sentiments.

Time to buy old US gold coins

What really appealed to me, and many others, was Trumps willingness to boldly call out corrupt public officials for what they are. His references to crooked Hillary resulted in loud cries of lock her up wherever he spoke. And perhaps the central theme of Trumps campaign was his promise to drain the swamp.

Now, some ten months after his shocking election, President Trump appears to be a pathetic shell of the man he was. His waffling on every issue finally forced his supporters to recently begin burning their Make America Great hats in protest of his seeming consideration of amnesty for Obamas unconstitutional DACA program, designed to protect the dreamer children of illegal immigrants.

I certainly was skeptical about Trump even after he said some of the most radical things any major presidential candidate has said in my lifetime. This was because, in the next breath, hed talk a...

American Gaullist "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

If a U.S. president calls an adversary Rocket Man on a mission to suicide, and warns his nation may be totally destroyed, other ideas in his speech will tend to get lost.

Which is unfortunate. For buried in Donald Trumps address is a clarion call to reject transnationalism and to re-embrace a world of sovereign nation-states that cherish their independence and unique identities.

Western man has engaged in this great quarrel since Woodrow Wilson declared America would fight in the Great War, not for any selfish interests, but to make the world safe for democracy.

Our imperialist allies, Britain, France, Russia, Japan, regarded this as self-righteous claptrap and proceeded to rip apart Germany, Austria, Hungary and the Ottoman Empire and to feast on their colonies.

After World War II, Jean Monnet, father of the EU, wanted Europes nations to yield up their sovereignty and form a federal union like the USA.

Europes nations would slowly sink and dissolve in a single polity that would mark a giant leap forward toward world government Alfred, Lord Tennysons Parliament of man, the Federation of the world.

Charles De Gaulle lead the resistance, calling for a Europe of nation-states from the Atlantic to the Urals.

For 50 years, the Gaullists were in constant retreat. The Germans especially, given their past, seemed desirous of losing their national identity and disappearing inside the new Europe.

Today, the Gaullist vision is ascendant.

We do not expect diverse countries to share the same cultures, traditions, or even systems of government, said Trump at the U.N.

Strong sovereign nations let diverse countries with different values, different cultures, and different dreams not just coexist, but work side by side on the basis of mutual respect.

In America, we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to watch.

Translation: We Americans have created something unique in history. But we do not assert that we should serve as a model for mankind. Among the 190 nations, others have evolved in different ways from diverse cultures, histories, traditions. We may reject their values but we have no God-given right to impose ours upon them.

After Its Caliphate Fails "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

While the Syrian Arab Army, the Russian aviation and Hezbollah are preparing to finish off Daesh, the Pentagon is planning a new war against Syria, this time with Kurdish troops. Just as the mission of the Caliphate was to create a Sunnistan straddling Iraq and Syria, so the mission of Rojava is to create a Kurdistan straddling the two states, as the Pentagon has been publicly stating for the last four years.

This map was published by Robin Wright nine months before the offensive by Daesh into Iraq and Syria. According to this Pentagon researcher, it rectifies the map published in 2005 by Ralf Peters for the reshaping of the Greater Middle East.

According to US grand strategy, as defined by Admiral Cebrowski in 2001, and published in 2004 by his assistant Thomas Barnett, all of the Greater Middle East must be destroyed except for Isral, Jordan and Lebanon.

Consequently, the imminent victory against Daesh will change nothing of the Pentagons intentions.

President Trump is against the manipulation of the jihadists. He has stopped the financial and military support that his country was giving them, and has managed to convince Saudi Arabia and Pakistan to do the same. He has modified NATO policies in the matter. However, nothing yet hints as to whether or not he will also oppose the Pentagons grand strategy. As far as the US Interior is concerned, the whole of Congress is in league against him, and he has no possibility of preventing a procedure for destitution other than negotiating with the Democratic Party.

Donald Trump has composed his administration of ex-senior civil servants from the Obama administration, a number of opportunistic politicians, many improvised representatives, and very very few trustworthy personalities.

His special representative against Daesh, Brett McGurk, is an ex-collaborator of President Obama and is supposed to serve Trumps new policy. On 18 August, he organised a meeting with the tribal leaders to fight Daesh . However, the photographs he published attest to the fact that, on the contrary, several of Daeshs leaders also participated in the meeting.

In the same vein, helicopters of the US Special Forces exfiltrated two European leaders of Daesh and their families from the outskirts of Deiz ez-Zor, before they could be taken prisoner by the Syrian Arab Army on 26 August....

16,000 Riot Cops on a Cruise Ship "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Efforts by Madrid to stop a Catalonia independence vote, currently slated for October 1st, seem to be growing more hostile by the day.  Earlier this week Spanish police seized control of Catalonias finances, seeking to ensure that separatist politicians could not spend further public funds on the referendum, and conducted raids across Catalonia to confiscate ballots and campaign materials from printing shops and delivery companies.

Now, as the New York Times notes this morning, Spanish police have detained 14 people during operations conducted yesterday which included the secretary general of economic affairs, Josep Maria Jov.

The Spanish police detained more than a dozen people in the region of Catalonia on Wednesday, drastically escalating tensions between the national government and Catalan separatists. The episode occurred less than two weeks before a highly contentious referendum on independence that the government in Madrid has vowed to block.

The police raided the offices of the Catalan regional government early Wednesday and arrested at least 14 people, including Josep Maria Jov, secretary general of economic affairs. The arrests were not expected, but hundreds of mayors and other officials in Catalonia had been warned that they would be indicted if they helped organize a referendum in violation of Spanish law.

Hundreds of supporters of Catalan independence immediately took to the streets of Barcelona to protest the arrests. Jordi Sanchez, the leader of one of the regions biggest separatist associations, used Twitter to urge Catalans to resist peacefully, but also to come out and defend our institutions.

Fluoride Exposure in Utero "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Year after year, more and more people are becoming aware of the harmful effects fluoride can have on the human body. Fluoride has been a known neurotoxin for a long time, but the government claims it benefits our teeth.

In reality, its not even known to actually prevent the buildup of harmful oral bacteria; however, it is known to be toxic, with long-term ingestion linked to brainheart, and bone issues. Fluoride is also an endocrine disruptor, and can affect your thyroid gland, pineal gland, and blood sugar levels.

Many universities and established scientific publications have gathered data on the health risks associated with fluoride. For example, a 2014 study conducted by Harvard School of Public Health and Icahn School of Medicine studied the effects of certain developmental neurotoxicants, including fluoride.

The researchers stated that children exposed to fluoride in drinking water showed an average IQ decrement of about seven points in children exposed to raised fluoride concentrations.

Well, another groundbreaking study was just published on Tuesday in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, further supporting that fluoride exposure can cause a reduction in IQ levels. However, this study was conducted in Mexico, where there is no fluoride added to drinking water (though there is some naturally occurring), meaning that much of the fluoride children are exposed to comes from sources outside of water.

Could You Find Your Way Out of the Wilderness? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Wilderness survival is a vast subject that few people ever truly master. Even certain subsets of this subject can be daunting. Fortunately, there are plenty of online resources and books that can help. Its a super popular subject that has been discussed at length by countless websites and authors, including yours truly.

But throughout my time researching this subject over the years, Ive stumbled on a few survival tips that dont seem to be mentioned very often. Perhaps their usefulness is a little too narrow, or there are better options that are little more versatile and applicable in more situations. However, Ive always felt that there is no survival tip that is too niche, so to speak. I like to learn everything, even if some of that knowledge is only useful in rare circumstances. In that spirit, Ive come up with a three survival tips on the subject of navigating your way out of the wilderness, that I dont think get mentioned often enough.

Pay Attention To The Animals

We all know that certain animals can sense magnetic fields, and use that ability to navigate. What most people dont realize is that observing some of these animals can help you figure out which way is north or south. If youre ever lost in the forests of North America or Europe, pay attention to any deer you might run across. They almost always face magnetic north or south when theyre grazing.

Follow The Water

With advances in modern infrastructure, its a lot easier for a community to spring up where there is no water. However, most towns and cities that are around today were built a long time ago, when they absolutely needed to be near water sources. For that reason, one of the best ways to find civilization is to simply follow any rivers or streams you run across. Obviously, doing this doesnt guarantee that youll find civilization, but if you dont know which direction the nearest community is, then following a river gives you the best odds of getting out of the wilderness. Plus, youll be able to stay hydrated throughout the journey.

Recycle Your Bodys Old, Damaged Tissue "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Cayenne peppers have long been held in high regard for their powerful health-boosting properties. Popular cleanses, like the Master Cleanse, use cayenne because of naturally occurring compounds, like capsaicin, which help cleanse and detox the body at a cellular level. These cleansing effects can have a significant impact on your entire body, promoting a healthy heart, weight, and gut. Sustaining overall health is where the actual cleansing benefits of cayenne lie, helping you live healthy, longer! Here are the top benefits of cayenne.

Cayenne Pepper Cleanses the Body

Cayenne is well-known for its pain-relieving, weight loss, and metabolism-boosting properties, but its also a detoxifying spice that works on many different organs and tissues. It owes its detoxifying health benefits to the actions of capsaicin, the natural compound that gives chili peppers their stinging bite.

Enhances Waste Removal From Cells

Capsaicin triggers the production of a powerful vasodilator called nitric oxide.[1] This compound causes your arteries to relax, which encourages normal blood pressure and improves circulation, especially to tissues that are woven through with delicate capillaries.[2] These tiny blood vessels sometimes become clogged with white blood cells and clumps of blood platelets, but loosening their walls gives them the flexibility they need to keep your blood flowing.[3] Adequate blood flow allows your cells to properly dispose of waste and take in fresh nutrients and oxygen.[4]

Going one step further, capsaicin also prevents platelets and red blood cells from clumping together, or clotting. This thins your blood so that it can flow through all the tiny vessels that supply organs like your heart and skin.[5]

Indicted Democrat State Rep Showed up to Work High on Morphine, Paid $51,000 For Online Psychic "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Another day, another corrupt Democrat. 

Texas Democrat State Rep. Dawnna Dukes is facing corruption charges; her trial is set for October 16th.

Travis County prosecutors claim Dukes showed up to the Capitol impaired, hid a cell phone from investigators and spent over $51,000 on an online psychic.

Dukes apparently used her own money for the psychic; the court documents do not indicate that she used taxpayer money.

Austin-American Statesman reported:

According to the filing, Dukes paid an online psychic $51,348 from December 2014 to January 2016, totaling nearly $1,000 per week.

In other extraneous acts listed in the filing, prosecutors say Dukes:

Was absent for roll call 65 percent of the time during the 2017 legislative regular session, and 36 percent of the time in the special session.

Responded to a search warrant for her cellphone by providing investigators a phone that did not match the identification number on the phone they had requested

Want To See Democratic House Leadership Change? Leadership PACs Have A Role To Play "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Doug Applegate, Ted Lieu, Randy Bryce

A couple of night ago I went to a LIEU-PAC event in Manhattan Beach with Randy Bryce. LIEU-PAC is Ted Lieu's leadership PAC, contributions to which go to candidates Lieu is trying to help elect to Congress (but not to himself). You can contribute to it here. Ted was elected regional vice chair of the DCCC by members of Congress from California, Washington, Oregon, Nevada and Hawaii and he's decided to stay neutral in the California races during primary season and then help the Democratic candidates in the general election. So far the only congressional candidate Ted has endorsed in the current cycle is Randy Bryce, the iron worker and union/veterans activist running against Paul Ryan in Wisconsin. Since he was in town... I brought him to the LIEU-PAC meet-up.

The activists who were there were very excited, not just having one of Congress' best members as their own congressman, but also getting to meet two of the most effective progressives against two congressional arch-villains, Paul Ryan and Darrell Issa. Yes, as you can see from the photo, Doug Applegate also came to the event. (Ted supports all California challengers to congressional Republicans and his events are open to any or all of them at any time. We were lucky that Doug decided this was the one to come to.) Ted spoke to the enthusiastic crowd about healthcare and about Putin-Gate and then introduced Randy and Doug and gave each of them a chance to speak to a very appreciative and supportive audience.

EPIC! Elizabeth Warren Gets Triggered After Radio Host Confronts Her About Being Part of the One Percent (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Fake Indian Elizabeth Warren is so easy to frazzle; all one has to do is call her out on her lies and hypocrisy and she loses her cool.

Enter Jeff Kuhner.

The conservative radio host confronted Pocahontas in the hallway at the WRKO studio in Boston on Monday and called her out for living in a multi-million dollar mansion while railing against the one percent. The exchange was epic!

After Kuhner asked Warren to explain how being worth millions of dollars and living in a $2 million house in Cambridge makes her different from the one percent she rails against, she tried to defend her position by saying, I wasnt born in Cambridge. My daddy had one job after another, he ended up as a janitor. My mom worked a minimum wage job at Sears.

BIG DEAL.

Warren also said that she wanted to be a public school teacher. Well, she does teachone class, after lying about being Native American and makes a hefty six figure salary from teaching ONE CLASS

Kuhner pushed back and brought up again that she is indeed a part of the one percent.

Youre part of the one percent and you rail against the one percent. You dont see the hypocrisy there? Kuhner asked.

Elizabeth Warren became frazzled at this point and responded, Thats not hypocrisy!

Pocahontas started to walk away as she said I believe in opportunity.

You mean like the opportunity to make $350,000 for one course? Is that the opportunity Senator? asked Kuhner

IF OBAMACARE FALLS AFTER THE SANDERS DEBATE, BERNIE WILL PROBABLY FALL WITH IT "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

So this is going to happen:

CNN anchor Jake Tapper and chief political correspondent Dana Bash will moderate a Town Hall Debate on the fight over Obamacare at 9 p.m. ET on Monday, Sept. 25.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) will debate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) in this 90-minute Town Hall Debate that will air live from Washington, D.C.
A lot of people are concerned:



Also:
Former President Obamas National Security Council spokesman said Thursday a proposed health care debate between Republican and Democratic senators is not the debate we want right now.

I'm not sure single payer vs Graham-Cassidy is the debate we want right now, Tommy Vietor, a co-host of the Pod Save America podcast, said.
I think this is a legitimate concern: Will Sanders be debating on behalf of retaining Obamacare? Or will he undermine Obamacare by portraying it as seriously flawed?

Dave Weigel suggests that this concern might be overstated:
Starting in January, shortly after becoming the Senate Democrats political outreach chair, Sanders helped organize health-care rallies meant to preempt any repeal of the ACA. Throughout 2017, Sanders used campaign funds (he is running for reelection in 2018) to give speaking tours in the states of senators who were seen as on the fence about repeal....

The news of next weeks CNN debate jogged their memories of a similar CNN event in February, where Sanders and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) sparred over health care. At the time, Sanders pivoted from Cruzs attacks on the ACA to his own arguments for universal care, including praise of single-payer systems in Europe.

That was a very different moment in this debate, said Miller-Lewis. Bernies been saying for months that...

Parents Furious After Florida Teacher Tells 5th Grade Students to Use Gender Neutral Pronoun Mx. When Addressing Her "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Liberalism is a mental disorder.

A 5th grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary School sent a letter home with students titled About Mx. Bressack.

In the letter (screenshot below), obtained by Tallahassee Democrat, the teacher explains to the parents that she uses gender neutral terms in her classroom.

One thing you should know about me is that I use gender neutral terms. My prefix is Mx. (pronounced Mix). Additionally, my pronouns are they, them, their instead of he, his, she, hers'.

Some parents were absolutely furious over this letter while other liberal lunatics were completely fine with it.

The Tallahassee Democrat reported that parents voiced their concern over Facebook. The Principal of the school Paul Lambert is also in full support of this teacher:

In a post written Tuesday night in the Facebook group Tally Moms Stay Connected, a parent said her childs teacher sent home a Welcome to my class note, which included the request.

The parent ended her original post with the question,What would your reaction be as a parent of 9 & 10 year olds?

We support her preference in how shes addressed, we certainly do, Lambert said. I think a lot of times it might be decided that there is an agenda there, because of her preference I can tell you her only agenda is teaching math and science at the greatest level she can.
