*RT:* *World top military bands take over Red Square for colorful festival (360 VIDEO)* It’s been loud and bright right by the Kremlin walls, but Moscow’s military band festival is now over, leaving thousands of fans sad and desperate for next year’s round.

Baxter Dmitry at Your News Wire - 14 minutes ago
Brave Vladimir Putin was the subject of a failed assassination attempt in Moscow as the New World Order attempted to silence their most formidable enemy.

The deadly collision occurred just before President Putin was due to fly to China for the G20 summit where he has had meetings with various world leaders, including Theresa May, US President Barack Obama and Chinese president Xi Jinping.

Rodrigo Duterte, Donald Trump-- Separated At Birth?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
I've been saying for some time now that to grasp what a Trumpanzee presidency would be like it's important to just go beyond Mussolini, Hitler and even Putin. I've suggested looking at how quickly Turkish autocrat Recep Tayyip Erdoğan moved to consolidate power in the aftermath of a half-assed coup attempt-- seizing control of the media, the judiciary, the army and any other institution that could be the source of dissent. Over 60,000 people have been detained or suspended from military units (including 40% of the country's generals), the judiciary, universities, newspapers and t... more »

Outrage As California Announce Segregation Of Black Students

Sean Adl-Tabatabai at Your News Wire - 1 hour ago
Universities across California are implementing a controversial segregation policy, separating black students from everybody else, in an attempt to be “politically correct”. California State University Los Angeles has become the latest institution to offer segregated housing for black students. Surprisingly, the move comes in response to the Black Student Union insisting that the University meet a set of demands to deal with “microaggressions” by fellow professors and students on campus. One such demand was for a “CSLA housing space” for black students. Thecollegefix.com reports: “... more »

Privatizing the Kill List

Karen Garcia at Sardonicky - 1 hour ago
Facing a shortage in credentialed military personnel, the Obama administration is outsourcing part of its drone assassination program to unaccountable corporations. What could possibly go wrong? According to the government, nothing much. You see, the private contractors operating the drones aren't actually allowed to pull the trigger on the "militants" (defined by the CIA as all males in "tribal areas" in the primes of their lives) whom they are tasked with suspecting and surveilling and identifying as bad guys.

The world’s first EM Drive is about to be launched into space – allowing scientists to figure out whether it is possible for a rocket engine to generate thrust without any exhaust or propellant. Some view the EM Drive as an impossibility due to the fact that it goes against one of the most fundamental laws of physics.

Mayoral candidates to ratepayers: “Let them eat monuments”

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 7 hours ago
In the old days to win a mayoral election a candidate had to promise bribes and monuments costing in the millions. Now, that wouldn’t even get you into the debates. Now, to head Auckland’s super-sized council bureaucracy, you have to make promises costing ratepayers *billions – *Victoria Crone to build bridges, Phil Goff for new train sets, John Palino for satelite cities somewhere. Promises costing *billions* at a time when the city’s debt, $7.6 billion and rising, *has never been higher*! The debt is unprecedented.

Instead of rushing to fund the president's Zika proposals, like they should have a year ago, the GOP immediately started bickering about shutting down the government. Although he says electing Señor Trumpanzee is integral to his repackaged hash of bad, failed austerity ideas (AKA, a "Better Way"), Ryan's congenital inability to keep his corner of the government functioning even minimally pre-dates the rise of Trum... more »

DYKES DESIGNING DEAF BABIES Recently on the radio (BBC 2) there was a discussion about designer babies. The story was basically that a couple had deliberately chosen to breed a deaf baby. The mother in question was deaf from birth and wanted her child to experience the 'cultural richness' of the deaf world. To do this she had to mate with a man who was also congenitally deaf.

With Hillary Clinton, I said be at my wedding, and she came to my wedding." - Donald Trump, on why he gave more than $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. “We’re now in September- historically the worst month for stocks. Financial markets have been in a slumber all summer. They should begin to wake up soon. This month, there will be a G-20 meeting. There will be new jobs nu... more »

The Poet: Walt Whitman, "Miracles"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*"Miracles"* "Why, who makes much of a miracle? As to me I know of nothing else but miracles, Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan, Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky, Or wade with naked feet along the beach just in the edge of the water, Or stand under trees in the woods, Or talk by day with anyone I love, or sleep in the bed at night with anyone I love, Or sit at the table at dinner with the rest, Or look at strangers opposite me riding in the car, Or watch honeybees busy around the hive of a summer forenoon, Or animals feeding in the fields, Or birds, or the wo... more »

"Lakota Code Of Ethics"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*"Lakota Code Of Ethics"* *1.* Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak. *2.* Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy– and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance. *3.* Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you. *4.* Treat the guests in your home with much consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best bed and tr... more »

"If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down upon his shoulders- what would you tell him to do?" "I... don't know. What could he do? What would you tell him?" "To shrug." - Ayn Rand, “Atlas Shrugged”

“A Pleasant Lull”

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*“A Pleasant Lull”* by Jim Kunstler "A pleasant lull lies over the land where today fewer people labor honestly- and some labor gruelingly for too little- while a matrix of rackets sustains the illusion that our living arrangements have a future. Is Quarterback Colin Kaepernick on the minds of the millions moiling around their backyard barbeques? I applaud his refusal to stand for the national anthem, though not for the reasons he stated. Rather, because I’m sick of vulgar symbolism in a dark moment of a fraying culture that demands more than cheap talk and lame gestures. In case ... more »

"Labor Day Summary: Wage Earners Have Taken a Beating"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*"Labor Day Summary: Wage Earners Have Taken a Beating"* by Charles Hugh Smith "Let's honor Labor Day by reviewing what's happened to wage-earners in the eight years since central banks "saved the financial system" with free money for financiers: wage-earners have taken a beating and been dumped in a ditch. It's really very simple: wage-earners have seen their real earnings (as measured by purchasing power) stagnate or decline while those chosen few with access to near-zero interest borrowed capital have seen their net income and wealth explode higher. Do the math, people: annual w... more »
