Also this morning, just as we were starting from Monument Square in Portland, a woman from Montana saw us and walked two miles with us. She is in Maine on vacation. Surprisingly she just turned up at the church here in Saco and is going to walk with us tomorrow. We are expecting a large group of Vetera... more »

[image: Review of "Save the planet & stuff" by Gail Gauthier] I recently had the pleasure of reading *Save the planet & stuff* by Gail Gauthier. *Save the planet & stuff* is an environmental fiction. It's geared toward young adults and offers readers a delightful comedy about a typical teenage boy from the city who accepts a summer job in Maine with two of his grandparents' elderly, Eco-dedicated friends. Let's take a look at the book's trailer: The clash between generations and lifestyles gives the book a solid premise. It's hilarious when Michael has to endure the absence o... more »

Saman Mohammadi at The Excavator - 4 hours ago
Every warrior that falls in battle, regardless of the army he/she belongs to or the cause he/she fights for, is a martyr in the sight of God and deserves to be honoured. But the beliefs and values of ISIL fighters being what they are, it is obviously hard to like and respect them, so they're the exception to the rule. It's one thing to be taking on the Iraqi government that is ruled by Iranian-backed Shia militias, and another thing to be attacking Kurdish female fighters who are only interested in defending their land and freedom from outsiders.

War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength and 2+2=5. Those all come from George Orwell’s enduring classic novel of a totalitarian dystopia "1984" but could easily be adapted for Obama’s America in 2014. A critical component of Orwell’s book is the perversion of language and the triumph of the lies of the state in enhancing its own power. It is called “newspeak” and is an indispensable item in big toolbox of the American political establishment. The government now lies as a first resort, no longer even bothering with the truth.

And so to win our parties have to build up blocs of support, and do so by appealing to certain interests.

For those who don’t know, “RT” stands for “Russia Today,” a news channel headquartered in Russia. “Russia Today America” is run by Americans, who are not interfered with by Russians. The proof of this is Abby Martin, hosting her own show “Breaking the Set,” closed on 3 March 2014 with a minute-long statement condemning the Russian military intervention in Ukraine. Those of us who have done our “homework” know that this was a lie (possibly unknown to Abby at the time). In fact the U.S. government lies about anything of importance to its citizens …and these lies are repeated by the so called “mainstream media” without the slightest attempt of verification. So did Russia Today fire Abby? Nope! In fact RT issued a statement saying: "Contrary to the popular opinion, RT doesn't beat its journalists into submission, and they are free to express their own opinions, not just in private but on the air." (Find the preceding quote in Wikipedia.) In the first part of the video below American patriots Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren and former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts, take on what’s really happening in America today.

*There’s Only One Way to Beat ISIS: Work with Assad and Iran -- Leslie H. Gelb, Daily Beast* The Obama administration has pulled together a coalition as ineffectual as it is unwilling.

U.S. Median Wealth Up from 27th to 25th

Kenneth Thomas at Middle Class Political Economist - 22 hours ago
Today Credit Suisse released its Global Wealth Databook 2014 to go along with the Global Wealth Report issued Monday. Global wealth hit another new record of $263 trillion as of mid-2014, up 8.3% from mid-2013 (Report, p. 3). Rich people are doing well, but how about the middle class? One measure of this is median wealth per adult, the exact midpoint of the wealth distribution. In the United States, mean wealth per adult reached $347,845, and median wealth per adult hit $53,352 (Databook, Table 2-4). This represents an increase in median wealth of 18.8% over 2013, enough to move the... more »

Lien in desperate move: Ko= economic doom!

Michael Turton at The View from Taiwan - 22 hours ago
FormosaNation on Twitter, who has been doing a great job tracking the Taipei mayor election, passed this glorious moment around. Here is Sean Lien, the KMT mayoral candidate for Taipei, announcing that if he isn't elected, the economy is doomed. People on Twitter pointed out that his solution is the same as Ma's: more China. That might have played in 2008. It won't play now. The government's insistence on failed China policies has backfired on one of the KMT's most critical claims in maintaining electoral superiority: the claim that it can deliver on the economy. Clearly, with Ma i... more »

Eichmann Was Completely Unrepentant About The Extermination Of The Jews

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 day ago
Adolph Eichmann, like Mitt Romney, started off as an advocate of self-deportation I never understood Roland’s interest in Jews-in-exotic-places but whenever we travel to off-the-beaten path countries, he always wants to visit synagogues— in places where you wouldn’t expect Jews, like Singapore, Yangon, and India. We still haven’t visited Madagascar but there’s even a small Jewish community there. Until Hitler decided to invade Russia, it looked like there was going to be a really big Jewish community in Madagascar.

Yes, the news everywhere around the world has continued to be about the Ebola "crisis"…. You cannot turn on any of the Jew spew media outlets these days and not watch the constant harping by the liars in our media with their constant scare mongering about this Ebola "outbreak" and calls for something to be done about this crisis, meaning the impending forced inoculation of the general public by big Pharma's poisonous vaccines….
