I know that much of this simply reiterates what I posted at 6:15 however first off I think this information deserves to be shared repeatedly, and second Rachel does an amazing job of sharing it in a way that is both informative and entertaining. Which by the way has certainly gained her show some special notice. Courtesy of The Hill: *MSNBC host Rachel Maddow dedicated 53 percent of her program over the past six weeks to Russia, according to a Thursday analysis from the left-leaning The Intercept. * *“Maddow’s Russia coverage has dwarfed the time devoted to other top issues, inc...more »

With the United States announcing the first battlefield use of its largest, non-nuclear bomb against ISIS in Afghanistan, I wanted to examine the background of these highly destructive thermobaric ordnances and how the American version nicknamed the "Mother of All Bombs" compares to Russia's version, nicknamed the "Father of All Bombs". The United States military GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb or MOAB (nicknamed the "Mother of All Bombs") was developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory and was first tested on March 11k 2003 at the Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.

The aftermath of one of several alleged Coalition strikes on multiple locations in Al Tabaqa, Syria on March 19th 2017 (via Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently) *Alex Hopkins, Airwars*:* International airstrikes and civilian casualty claims in Iraq and Syria: March 2017* March was the deadliest month ever recorded by Airwars during the Coalition’s campaign in Iraq and Syria. This coincided with the greatest number of munitions dropped by the allies so far in the war. The high number of alleged incidents across both countries forced Airwars temporarily to pause its full vetting of ...more »

One thing our loving “Friends of the Earth” don’t seem to understand is that thick sea ice is a death sentence for Whales and other aquatic mammals. By promoting policies intended to thicken the Arctic sea ice, what they are really doing is sentencing countless sea mammals to death. Ironically, it was John D. Rockefeller and his … Continue reading "Hey, Genius!!! Thick Arctic Sea Ice Kills Whales and Polar Bears"
Self-anointed climate “expert” and mechanical engineer Bill Nye the Pseudo-Science Guy discovered just how fickle his fair weather liberal friends truly are. It turns out this “March for Science” isn’t a march for science at all, it is yet another left-wing Orwellian political love fest. Q: How does the march define being political? A: “The march … Continue reading "Bill Nye Gets Eaten By the Crocodile"
Back in 1986 NASA’s climate “expert” James Hansen claimed ozone depletion would result in catastrophic warming. No mention of CO2. A dramatic loss of ozone over the Antarctica proves the “greenhouse” effect” is real and presages a gradual warming of the earth that threatens floods, drought, human misery in a few decades and — if … Continue reading "Heads I Win, Tails You Lose; Hansen Used to Argue Less Greenhouse Gas Would Cause Warming"
What the climate alarmists are basically arguing is that decisions on energy use and production should be determined by government on the basis of their preferences. If they were being logical they would need to find that the long used decision making system on these issues consisting largely of private decisions in the economic marketplace […]
*FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 2017Rachel does it again:* For years, we've told you that tribal darling Rachel Maddow "just isn't obsessively honest." Her performance last night was worse. Last night, Rachel pleasured the tribe with her scathing account of a recent speech by Jeff Sessions. Assuming minimal competence, we'd have to say that her presentation was baldly dishonest. Sessions wouldn't have been our choice for attorney general. Then again, we didn't favor the way Maddow mugged and clowned her way through last year's election—a lazy, self-protective performance which helped send Tru...more »
Dandelion Salad By Gaither Stewart www.bestcyrano.org/THOMASPAINE 7/4/08 Dedicated to those who continually raise the bugaboo of the Communist menace to the make-believe, hypocritical, lying and socially perfidious “American way of life”. (Rome) I visited the tomb of Antonio Gramsci in the Poets’ Cemetery in Rome. An inconspicuous urn resting in the center of the mound […]
[image: cancer]Those who follow the scandals of the pharmaceutical industry closely, and who have a knack for understanding their economics via the state-created monopolies granted to these companies, know the power these most unscrupulous companies often wield. We’ve seen companies use the power of the state to grant themselves monopolies on decades-old drugs, and, in turn, […]
*Stratfor*: *The Grueling Battle for Western Mosul* Battered by U.S. airstrikes and persistent clashes between Iraqi and Islamic State forces, western Mosul has taken a beating over the past few weeks. Four months into the anti-Islamic State campaign in the city, Iraqi troops retook the eastern portion of the city and moved into the west. Western Mosul is the core of the Islamic State's resistance. An estimated 2,000 Islamic State fighters are still in the area, along with more than 750,000 civilians, some of whom are suspected sympathizers of the extremist group. On top of that, ...more »
*Syrian President Dr. Bashar al Assad* *gives response to US Aggression in* *his latest interview* On this Good Friday, the most somber day on the Christian Calendar, as we reflect on the modern "passion play" of good versus evil that is being staged before us, this latest video interview of Syrian President Dr. Bashar al Assad is yet another crucial scene. Watch and listen as Assad scoffs at the US false flag premise for the dangerous [to global security] attack on a Syrian airfield last week. He says he doubts that there was even a real chemical attack. The "white helmets" repor...more »
[image: undefined] If anyone is worried whether the prospect of a major war, which many of us considered almost inevitable if Hillary Clinton had attained the White House, is back on track, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s visit to Moscow was cold comfort. From his remarks together with his counterpart Sergey Lavrov, there is now little reason to expect any improvement in US-Russia ties anytime soon, if ever, and much reason to expect them to get worse – a lot worse. There has been a great deal of speculation as to why President Donald Trump, who promised a break with the warmong...more »
[image: undefined] In the summer of 2013, the international media was aflame with reports that Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had murdered 1,400 civilians in the town of Ghouta: using deadly sarin gas, children, women, and men had been horribly slaughtered, and Syria’s Islamist opposition, in concert with the Washington foreign policy Establishment, was agitating for US intervention. It was the culmination of a years-long propaganda campaign, which then President Barack Obama had stubbornly resisted – and now, finally, he was about to give in and give the order for US missiles to ...more »
If Steve Bannon is fired, Politico's Ben Schreckinger believes that Donald Trump and his new best friends in the West Wing might rue the day: I asked friends and foes alike to imagine how, should Bannon get the boot, the pugnacious populist might exact his revenge. Taken together, their suggestions amount to an epic, *Kill Bill*-style revenge saga that starts with Bannon leaking personal dirt on his enemies to the tabloids, using the megaphone of Breitbart News to exacerbate divisions inside the administration, and siccing an army of internet trolls on his adversaries to harass and...more »

This is a little off topic, but have you seen Channel 4’s “The Windsors”? The best characters are ‘Yorkies’ - ‘Beatrice’ and ‘Eugenie’, the gormless, work-shy princesses. The ‘Fergie’ is portrayed as giggly and dumb; too stupid to digest the fact that the ‘firm’ regards her as toxic. Well, apart from the giggling, reality is truer than fiction as you can see in this filmed report of the good duchess’s visit to Bethlehem. H/T Daphne Anson. “pity she’s so ignorant of the case for Israel’ says Daphne Anson. Well, she’s certainly that. But her performance in this film is at least as...more »
