"I want you to always hold your head up and follow your dreams wherever they take you. Don't you ever listen to the people out to hurt you or make you cry. Listen to your heart and be better than them. No one gets ahead by hurting others. The only real peace anyone will ever have is the one that comes from within. Live your life on your own terms and make it a happy life. Always. That's what's important.” - Sherrilyn Kenyon

Monday we learned exactly who. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy scheduled a debate on Charlie Dent's Dangerous Synthetic Drug Control Act (H.R. 3537) for Monday.

Proponents of the legislation claim it's meant to combat drug abuse. The vote was 258-101 but it was an interesting breakdown.

Trump’s economic plan: Deep denial about the deep doodoo of deep voodoo

Trump’s economic “plan” was voodoo economics when first touted, and is even deeper voodoo in the new and unimproved model rolled out recently. The tax plan in short: big tax cuts on incomes and entities looking suspiciaoulsy similar to Trump’s own with precisely zero intention to commensurately cut spending. *In the Tax Policy Center’s analysis of the Republican candidate’s proposal, the institute said that Trump’s plan would reduce federal revenues by $9.5 trillion over its first decade, and an additional $15.0 trillion over the next 10 years.

The Poet: Stephen Levine, “Half Life”

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 3 hours ago
*"Half Life"* "We walk through half our life as if it were a fever dream, barely touching the ground, our eyes half open, our heart half closed. Not half knowing who we are, we watch the ghost of us drift from room to room, through friends and lovers never quite as real as advertised. Not saying half we mean or meaning half we say, we dream ourselves from birth to birth seeking some true self. Until the fever breaks and the heart can not abide a moment longer as the rest of us awakens, summoned from the dream, not half caring for anything but love." ~ Stephen Levine

Wall Street Banker Claims Global Debt Is Not Owned By Humans

Baxter Dmitry at Your News Wire - 4 hours ago
The fiat money scheme that enslaves humanity makes such little sense that a Wall Street banker, in attempting to understand why so many trillions of dollars evaporate into thin air each and every year, with no accountability whatsoever, has claimed that the human race must be paying debt to aliens. Is the world economy a closed system, as we have been taught, or is it actually an open system? In other words, are the world’s financial elite conducting transactions with off-planet entities, enslaving the human race to unseen actors?

Quote of the Day: On children’s self-esteem

"A Bad Precedent"? You Betcha!

noreply@blogger.com (fern hill) at DAMMIT JANET! - 16 hours ago
Some follow-up to my post yesterday about the bungling around the approval of Mifegymiso (abortion pill) for inclusion in taxpayer-funded provincial healthcare plans. The Globe and Mail is still on the story. It seems that when Mifegymiso's manufacturer, Celopharma, began the long and winding (and politically stymied? remember, there were CONservatives in charge then) process, there were no costs associated with the Common Drug Review. [Paula Tenenbaum, president of Celopharma] said that when the company began the Health Canada application process in late 2011, the Common Drug Rev... more »

*(Click on Image to Enlarge)* *Kaitlin Lavinder, The Cipher Brief*: *Growing Instability in Africa’s Top Two Oil Producers* Africa’s long-time, largest oil producer is wavering.

Are We Facing Another 2008 Financial Crisis?

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 16 hours ago
© Kai Pfaffenbach / Reuters *RT*: *Deutsche Bank woes stoking fears of 2008 financial crisis repeat* Europe’s biggest lender Deutsche Bank has lost more than half of its value since January, posing a threat to the stability of other banks across the continent. Some analysts are worried it could invoke a large-scale crisis, bigger than in 2008. After a massive sell-off on Monday, Deutsche Bank’s market value shrank to €14.5 billion. In dollar terms it is only $2 billion more than the $14 billion penalty the bank faces from the United States Department of Justice over its mortgage-b... more »

*Greenie bank tottering* Germans are the original environmentalists. They have been walking around naked in their forests -- and feeling good about it -- for over 100 years. Even Hitler adopted Greenie ultimate goals of primitive bliss. So modern environmentalism could well be said to be a German invention. It is therefore no surprise that a major German bank, Deutsche Bank, has been active in promoting environmentalism. They frequently proclaim the truth of Warmism, for instance. And their investments must be "ecologically responsible", of course. No building of dams to ben... more »

Yes, consumer preferences are changing and doing so rapidly. There is ample technical support on the internet to allow folks to use all natural drugs safely.

Rothschild Insider Claims Global Elite Planning Race War In America

A Rothschild family insider claims the global elite are actively fomenting a race war in America in order to advance the agenda of depopulation, destroy the black race, destabilize the nation, and create the conditions necessary for martial law and global governance of the U.S. As if following a script or some explicit stage direction by a greater power, the narrative of racism and division is being pushed by mainstream media, and the idea of an American race war is becoming less far fetched every day.

The Onslaught On Syrian Rebel Controlled Aleppo Continues

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 day ago
*Reuters*:* Syrian government launches Aleppo ground attack* Syrian government forces and their allies attacked the opposition-held sector of Aleppo on several fronts on Tuesday, the biggest ground assault yet in a massive new military campaign that has destroyed a U.S.-backed ceasefire. The United States says the assault on Aleppo is proof that President Bashar al-Assad and his Russian and regional allies have abandoned an international peace process to pursue victory on the battlefield after nearly six years of civil war.

American conspiracy theorist, broadcaster and author, Bill Cooper, predicted a rise in school shootings in his 1991 book Behold a Pale Horse, saying that they would be used by the government to justify strict gun control laws. William Milton Cooper described with eerie accuracy a government who was willing to manufacture a false flag event in order to further a global agenda of destroying America’s sovereignty by confiscating citizens’ guns.

*The easy money bubble is about to pop, says Justin Spittler from Casey Research in this guest post.* As you probably know, the American Federal Reserve has been desperately trying to stimulate the economic system since the 2008–2009 financial crisis. It’s held its key interest rate near zero for the past eight years. And it’s “printed” more than $3.5 trillion out of thin air. These radical policies were *supposed* to grow the economy. But all they’ve done is inflate financial asset prices. The S&P 500 has soared 218% since 2009. A few weeks ago, it set an all-time high. ... more »

Colin Powell Email: Israel Has Secret Nuke Stash Targeting Iran

Edmondo Burr at Your News Wire - 1 day ago
Leaked emails from former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell confirms that Israel possesses a secret stash of some 200 nuclear weapons all targeted on the Iranian capital Tehran. Israel is not a signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and has therefore never revealed whether it has possession of nuclear weapons – so Colin Powell’s admission may have just given away the size of Israel’s entire nuclear arsenal.

A quick note on the conference vote that gave extra seats on Labour's NEC to representatives from Scotland and Wales.

There are plenty of delegates and Labour watchers who've decried this as a stitch up by the outgoing committee.
