Hillary, pneumonia, and leftists' dishonesty and irresponsibility

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 1 hour ago
Hillary fainted during an event commemorating the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 Muslim attacks on America (and my PhD defense). Soon afterwards, her doctor revealed that she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday. It's my feeling that the doctor had been asked to remain silent and he did something that the Hillary campaign didn't want. For the first time, Hillary's health was acknowledged to be a serious issue. Her two-day trip to California was cancelled. And the leaders of the Democratic National Council are calling for an emergency meeting that will consider Hillary's replacemen... more »

The Case For Señor Trumpanzee Can Be Made To Sound Compelling-- But Only If Enough Lies Are Infused Into It

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
One of my neighbors sent along one of those right-wing chain e-mails we all get. It's been circulating since Jeb! was still the GOP frontrunner. There was a definition of Señor Trumpanzee and his success that caught my definition by defining him as "A giant middle finger from average Americans to the political and media establishment." Who *wouldn't* like that! It is funny, though, that a profoundly dishonest scam honest and manipulative billionaire would be perceived as the anti-Establishment candidate.

*"The Impoverishment Of The Masses"* by Alasdair Macleod "Feudal and mercantilist economic systems were characterized by the lower orders of ordinary people being enslaved by, or subjected to, the commands of an elite. Beyond basic subsistence, serfs and slaves were not enabled to consume other goods, nor were they given the means to do so. Communism was hawked as handing power to the serfs, or workers, united in and by the state. But again, it meant that workers remained serfs, employed and commanded by a state set up in their name.

Hillary would never lie about her medical condition?

Steve at Thinking Aboot - 1 hour ago
As CBS writes, Hillary's campaign did not immediately explain why the Democratic nominee did not reveal the pneumonia diagnosis prior to the Sunday incident, raising questions of transparency. This is what her spox said earlier: “Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen. During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.” We read it twice: no mention of pneumonia. So when the ent... more »

European Scientific Journal Concludes 9/11 Was A Controlled Demolition

The third building to fall at free fall speed on September 11, 2001, was WTC7. It was not hit by a plane on 9/11 and yet imploded on itself at free fall speed like the other two towers, meaning that there was no resistance to its collapse, indicating a perfect demolition job by experts.

Let's Make Sure The Future Of American Education Is NOT Trump University

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 11 hours ago
Last week you may have caught Señor Trumpanzee's telepromter speech in Cleveland on education. You could tell it was read from a teleprompter because he sounded like he was on Ambien and because he didn't say he would model the American education system on Trump University. Instead he pushed the charter school industry's privatization agenda. Trumpanzee spoke at a dismally failing charter school, Cleveland Arts and Social Sciences Academy, owned by crooked for-profit charter school fanatic Ron Packard. The school received a D for Performance Index, a composite of scores across mul... more »

The fundamental problem that we face today is the desire by religious fanatics to impose their doctrines on all others. This has come about in two ways. The first by financially empowering the political aspect of the most barbarous version of Islam. The second by importing vast numbers of Islamic immigrants not prepared to assimilate or eschew aspects of Islamic teachings that are clearly Anti Christian. These then accept leadership from the first. I personally think all this will end soon enough but that is yet unsure and may demand a global conflict to fully de Nazify Isla... more »

Humans are Frugivores:

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 1 day ago
*[image: Fruitarian Humans]* This strongly suggests that we spent a lot of time evolving as fruit eaters. Then the discovery of fire allowed us to convert a lot of other less digestible to digestible, nicely expanding our food base as we left the tropics and their year round fig trees. It also made meat fit to eat as well as the stew pot broke down connective tissue. Add in large fishing villages and we developed our social capacity as well. The take home of course is that our dominant food should be fruit and near fruits and occasional meat protein for bet practice. Yet cooking ... more »

James Comey’s Ties To Clinton Foundation Is A Conflict Of Interest

Sean Adl-Tabatabai at Your News Wire - 1 day ago
According to a recent review of James Comey’s previous and current business relationships, the FBI Director has deep personal and professional ties to The Clinton Foundation that pose a significant conflict of interest. The findings reinforce the idea that Comey whitewashed the investigation of Hillary Clinton due to the fact that he is entrenched in big-money nepotism with Washington’s elite. Breitbart.com reports: These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate... more »

Fukushma Daiichi Update Sep 11 2016

Majia's Blog at Majia's Blog - 1 day ago
Fukushima emissions are down from unit 1 since TEPCO used their device several days ago. Do you see the crane dangling the device over unit 1 (in the foreground)? I've seen that device dropped down into this unit many times and emissions always subsequently decline, at least for awhile. I think perhaps the device is involved in the nitrogen injections. In the background it looks as if the crane is removing a spent fuel rod from unit 3, although I could be mistaken: As you can see from today's screenshots, visible atmospheric emissions look reduced substantially, especially arou... more »

AFTER 15 YEARS / 9/11 UNANSWERED QUESTIONS STILL SMOLDERING

Allen L Roland, Ph.D at Allen L Roland's Weblog - 1 day ago
*Like a giant smoldering edifice the official 9/11 story is chock full of holes in which individuals were not held responsible for their actions, the truth was continually short-circuited and much information was based on secondhand C.I.A. and Pentagon “torture” reports. Over 80% of Americans still rightfully reject the official 9/11 story: Allen L Roland, PhD* *"The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined in a book b... more »
