Obama Maintains a State of National Emergency

No threat whatever exists. Alleged ones are fabricated. They’re fake. They used to enforce police state harshness. Fearmongering is longstanding US policy. So is bald-faced lying. At issue is supporting wealth, power, and privilege. It’s about advancing America’s imperium. One war after another follows. Permanent ones persist. So does police state ruthlessness. On September 14, 2001, George Bush issued Proclamation 7463: Declaration of National Emergency by Reason of Certain Terrorist ...Read full article...

Merry Christmas: US House and Senate pass NDAA 2014

While everyone is distracted with the holiday festivities, Congress has been hard at work, screwing us over in the name of national security. Yesterday the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act was fast-tracked through the Senate, with no time for discussion or amendments.  And you know, its Christmastime, so they just passed it so that they could recess for the holidays. The new version of the NDAA has already been ...Read full article...

Washington Has Discredited America. The “Obama Regime”, a Police State

Years ago when I described the George W. Bush regime as a police state, right-wing eyebrows were raised.  When I described the Obama regime as an even worse police state, liberals rolled their eyes.  Alas!  Now I am no longer controversial.  Everybody says it. According to the UK newspaper, The Guardian, the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, had an angry exchange with Obama in which Merkel compared Obama’s National ...Read full article...

Making a Bad System Worse: Disturbing Obamacare Surprises

Consumers are in for many rude surprises. Soon enough they’ll know they’ve been scammed. A previous article discussed insurers limiting hospital and doctor choices. Doing so cuts costs. Sacrificed is treatment from relied on providers when most needed. Using their services requires paying costs out-of-pocket. Obama lied claiming: “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period,” he said. “If you like your health care plan, ...Read full article...

Obama Sentences Political Prisoner Lynne Stewart to Death

Lynne’s crime was compassion. She was imprisoned for doing the right thing. She did it honestly, admirably and courageously. She did it defending some of America’s most disadvantaged for 30 years. She’s dying. She has Stage Four cancer. She was given 12 months to live. She qualifies in all respects for compassionate release. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) authorities denied her. Doing so reflects official Obama administration policy. In Lynne’s ...Read full article...

Legal Scholars warn that U.S. Presidents undermine the Rule of Law

From King George to King Barack Yesterday, during a rare discussion between politicians and scholars, both sides agreed that the current U.S. President, Barack Hussein Obama and his predecessor, George W. Bush, more than any other president before them, have unequivocally harmed the U.S. Constitution by deciding what laws they want to follow and which laws can be ignored in their effort to impose their agendas. Furthermore, both Bush ...Read full article...

Hunger in America

It’s hard giving thanks when you’re hungry. It’s harder living in the world’s richest country. It’s harder still knowing government officials don’t care. It’s hardest of all wondering how you’ll get by. More below on growing hunger and deprivation. It’s increasing in America at a time trillions of dollars go for warmaking, corporate handouts, and other benefits for rich elites. Giving thanks predated the republic. In 1621, Plymouth Pilgrims ...Read full article...

Walmart employees paid for EBT glitch shopping spree in Louisiana

Last month’s EBT-glitch shopping spree landed those who abused their benefits in hot water when Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal cancelled their SNAP cards. Taxpayers were assured that their dollars would not go to fund the chaotic free-for-all that ensued when shoppers discovered that their benefit cards suddenly had no limits. Wal-Mart made the decision to override the emergency measure of allowing only $50 per card and rang through heaping full carts ...Read full article...

Veterans Day Hypocrisy

Some people confuse Veterans Day with Memorial Day. They’re both federal holidays. The latter remembers combat related dead service personnel. The former honors war and peacetime veterans. It largely thanks living ones. It does so disingenuously. Veterans Day was formerly Armistice Day. It commemorates the war to end all wars. In 1918, guns on both sides largely fell silent. They did so on the 11th hour of the 11th ...Read full article...
