Why Does The FBI Still Refuse To Release Their Investigation Of David Joyce's Cocaine Abuse?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 28 minutes ago
Andrew Rayburn (r) bought some sports teams, a jet and a crooked congressman (l) Some people say Ohio Congressman David Joyce has kicked his cocaine addiction and is no longer a substance abuser. But not everyone who knows Joyce agrees. Joyce became so obsessed with 2 Live Crew when he was on a jihad against their music that started... living the life. He's become a notorious corporate whore in Washington and everyone on K Street-- which is salivating at the prospect that Republican congressional gains next week will bring them more David Joyces-- knows he'll roll over if the price i... more »

She's Comin' Down Fast : South Africa Threatened with Helter Skelter

U.S. Secretary of Defense Hagel Talks About The Threats And Long Term Challenges Facing The United States

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 hour ago
*Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel: Get Used to Endless War -- David A. Graham, The Atlantic* From ISIS to climate change, the Pentagon chief says, the threats that face the United States are long-term challenges. Sometimes it feels like what's happening now, at any given moment, is bigger, more important, worse, and more dangerous than before. Luckily, that often turns out to be incorrect: Today's news is tomorrow's hazy memory, and what once seemed like an existential threat is now nothing more than an unpleasant recollection. It sure seems like there are frightening events happ... more »

Delusional Christian Zionists proclaim blind love for Jews, Israel

John Friend at The Realist Report - 3 hours ago
An article recently appearing in *The Jerusalem Post* described the heretical and completely absurd Christian Zionist movement as gaining strength and momentum as a result of alleged rising "anti-Semitism" and "threats to Israel." Millions of mostly White Americans fanatically support and even worship the Jewish people and the Jewish state of Israel, despite the fact that the Jews killed Jesus Christ and are actively seeking to destroy traditional Western Christian civilization.

*The War Against Islamic State: The Kurdish Stalingrad -- The Economist* Kobane has acquired huge symbolic significance for all those fighting for it “WE WILL resist to our last drop of blood together… if necessary we will repeat the Stalingrad resistance in Kobane.” The words of Polat Can, a Syrian Kurdish commander, to describe the fight against Islamic State (IS) jihadists for the town on the Syrian-Turkish border may exaggerate the scale of the fighting, but makes plain the emotional and strategic symbolism now attached to Kobane.

Zombies: American as Apple Pie in Obamastan

Donn Marten at Carrying a Flag - 4 hours ago
Just in time for Halloween comes an interesting take on the zombie phenomenon in America. Pop culture seems to be saturated with zombies in movies, video games and on television with the smash hit AMC series The Walking Dead. The genre had seemingly died years ago after the umpteenth Dawn of the Dead sequel but is back and more popular than ever in 2014 America. John Whitehead of the civil rights organization The Rutherford Institute has a new piece out on the allure of zombies in America.

This is an excellent reminder of why free trade works and the fight for it never really ends. The reason for that is very simple. Capital needs secure pricing in order to pay out originating capital costs. Yet it also ends there and the problem is that capital loves to create manufactured capital costs in order to sustain the money stream. We live in what is largely an artificial debt matrix that works only to secure a long term interest flow with far too little subsidiary wealth production. All this wastage is paid for by inflating the currency. With this though you will be... more »

Tesla's Science of Energy with Thomas Valone

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 10 hours ago
This is a valuable resource on Tesla's work for the many now walking in his footsteps. It is a review of the text 'harnessing the wheelwork of nature' publshed a decade ago. That ready availability has allowed much of Tesla's experiments to be rerun many times and a deeper understanding of what he was doing to emerge. I am also actively following up on his theories and we already understand how he massively triggered a multilication of usuable power. I want you to think of something. Dark Matter which I now can exactly simulate using approximately 5000 vertices presents no res... more »

New Crystal Could Let Divers Breathe Underwater

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 10 hours ago
This is seriously important as it can make subsea operations completely viable. We can add in a wet suit lined with an oxygen rich gel as well and long term operations become viable. The skin itself would continue to breathe allowing hours of work to be undertaken. Thus subsea infrastructure can be built with housing for a long term presence only attempted sketchily at the moment. In short I now see a viable development road with known solutions and the subsea can be easily opened up. It is not a priority so development will be slow and methodical but then I know that as I was... more »

The data itself is naturally so massive that it is massivily inaccessible unless you can target what you know already. You must miss what you do not know.

Does Osborne realise? Probably! Ipsos Mori poll shows 1 in 8 will cash in pension pot under reforms  More than 200,000 people will cash their entire pension pot when the government reforms take effect next year, with one in five planning to use their savings to fund a holiday, a study has found. From April, workers over 55 will be able to use their pensions like bank accounts and withdraw

Nobel Winner Jean Tirole’s Faulty Views on Monopoly

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 1 day ago
*This guest post by Frank Shostak explains that Nobel Prize-winning economist Jean Tirole comes from that school of economists who consider when reality doesn’t fit their faulty models of the economic system, they demand laws written to change the reality.* Frenchman Jean Tirole of the University of Toulouse won the 2014 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for devising methods to improve regulation of industries dominated by a few large firms. According to Tirole, large firms undermine the efficient functioning of the market economy by being able to influence the prices and the quant... more »

“Guess How Much America's War Against Isis Costs Every Single Day?”

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*“Guess How Much America's War Against Isis Costs Every Single Day?”* by AFP “The Pentagon has revised its estimate of the cost of the US air war in Iraq and Syria, saying the price tag for the campaign against the Islamic State group comes to about $8.3 million a day. Since air strikes began on August 8, the campaign — which has involved about 6,600 sorties by US and allied aircraft — has cost $580 million, said Pentagon spokesman Commander Bill Urban. The Defense Department had previously put the average daily cost of the military operation at more than $7 million a day. The high... more »

*ThinkProgress caption: "Dr. Francys Johnson with the NAACP leads an occupation of the Georgia State Capitol to protest voter suppression."* *by Ken* Howie has been manning the 2014 voter-suppression beat, which following recent custom has been one of the big stories of the election campaign, or at least it should have been. It matters even more in an election with so many races that are looking so close in states that are so polarized that each side's voter turnout could be the deciding factor. Nevertheless, despite occasional minor setbacks to the Republican voter-suppression ju... more »

How to deal with the growing incentives competition

Kenneth Thomas at Middle Class Political Economist - 1 day ago
This article was originally published in the *Columbia FDI Perspectives* series of the Columbia Center for Sustainable Investment, #131, September 29. I have left it largely unchanged, except for adding a link and a comment, and correcting a grammatical error. As I discussed in an earlier *Perspective*,[1] the use of investment incentives is pervasive and growing. The most recent example [this was completed prior to the Tesla auction] of a big bidding war was when Boeing threatened to move production of its 777-X aircraft out of Washington state, prompting some 20 states to offer ... more »

The Anatomy of Compromise

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 1 day ago
It’s supposed to be a virtue to compromise. Most of the time people say this, they don’t mean compromise: they often just mean recognising what’s most important, and not losing it to what’s least important. Compromise isn’t always wrong though. “A compromise is an adjustment of conflicting claims by mutual concessions. This means that both parties to a compromise have some valid claim and some value to offer each other. And *this* means that both parties agree upon some fundamental principle which serves as a base for their deal.”1 Simple enough. But so often compromise sacrif... more »

Eisenhower Remembered (No Labels Scam) Upon Winning This Election, Republicans Target Rest of Consumer Protections (Why You Must Vote Against It Once You Understand The Deep State's Implications) Supporting Slave Labor

Has the U.S. Republican party (and associated Blue Dog Democrats) truly lost their minds since Eisenhower's presidency? The original passage, from a letter Eisenhower wrote to his brother Edgar on Nov. 8, 1954, went as follows: Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party

*Wishful Thinking In The U.S. Plans Against The Islamic State -- David Ignatius, Washington Post* A glimpse of the anxiety sweeping the Arab world surfaced last week when an Arab woman complained during a talk in Amman at the Columbia Global Center for the Middle East. She said my speech’s title about the “crisis” in the region wasn’t accurate. The correct word was “disintegration.” The audience cheered loudly. The Arab world is suffering a sense of vertigo these days. Extremists from the Islamic State, who have seemingly arisen out of nowhere, have burst through the gates of pow... more »

Guest Post By Mikel Weisser, A Progressive Running In Arizona's Back Country

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 day ago
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Cliven Bundy and crackpot state Senator Kelli Ward (R-AZ) Let me introduce you to a new name, a new candidate you probably never heard of, not even if you're live in the district he's running in, AZ-04, Arizona's reddest (R+20) district-- Prescott and almost everything between Phoenix and California. The Democrat taking on right-wing ideologue Paul Gosar this year is Mikel Weisser. He's not going to win in 7 days. But he is doing something the DCCC would never dream of-- building towards a future Democratic take-over of the district. Meet Mikel: Howdy, my n... more »

Why westerners are joining jihadis

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 1 day ago
It’s been widely noted that recruits to jihad and Islamic State come overwhelmingly not from the poor and downtrodden struggling under Middle-East dictatorships, but are often well-fed, well-educated middle-class citizens who have grown up in western countries – suggesting something lacking in what these well-fed folk absorbed in their western education, and maybe what they see from the west’s alleged “leaders.” US Secretary of State John Kerry for example seems to want to outdo his predecessor in the competition for being the least informed Secretary of State this decade, claimin... more »

David Parker had a dream!

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 1 day ago
Once upon a time, Labour-leader wannabe David Parker had a dream. It’s a dream he’s still reluctant to abandon. The problem is not his tax, he claims, just the “glitches” he had in selling it. In other words, the problem with the tax was the sales pitch, not that it was “soak the rich.” He – or at least those contemplating voting for him – might care to read some recent research from the Canadian Fraser Institute: saying Canada's capital gains taxes hurt economy… “While capital gains taxes raise a small amount of revenues for government, they do so at considerable economic cost ... more »
