  1. NYC has been seizing the cars of 100s of people wrongly accused of being involved with the outlawed volunteer taxi services. Which are only “illegal” to protect the organized crime syndicates running “legitimate” taxi services.

    Book: Bill Doesn’t Want Hillary to Win,Clinton Aides Claim
    Contrary to his public persona of steadfast support for his wife’s 2016 campaign, a new book claims that a reckless Bill Clinton actually does not want his wife to win the White House, and that he sabotaged her 2008 campaign with his disastrous performance in South Carolina — and intends to do it again.

    Don’t believe a word of it.He wants back in the White House to lift vast sums of money from dupes seeking an audience with the Butcher of Benghazi.He also owes her big time for saving his bacon when he got caught with his pants down when he couldn’t lie his way out of it.

    Welfare Cash for Weed in Colorado
    Recipients are withdrawing thousands in cash at pot dispensaries, and Republicans want to stop it

    What does anybody expect?They get the money for doing nothing and a lot would rather get high than eat.There’s no way they should be able to get cash with their EBT cards.Its not what they’re for.

    Obama at DNC Event: ‘I’m Not Overly Partisan,’ Don’t Watch the News Because ‘Whatever They’re Reporting on, I Usually Know’
    He’s used the excuse that he didn’t know anything until they told him since the day he was immaculated.You mean he was being less than truthful?

    Rep. Braley: Sorry Bro, I Have A Fundraiser To Attend UPDATED: Braley Campaign Responds
    Over a two-year period, Democratic U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley missed 75 percent of meetings for a committee that provides oversight over the Veterans Administration, including one meeting on a day he attended three fundraisers for his own campaign.

    This is the infected boil thats running for the Senate against Joni Ernst,the hog castrater and warrior.He’s already insulted the military and farmers.Not such a good idea in a state like Iowa.

    Media whines about its abusive relationship with the pharoah.

    • This cracks me up to no end. They know he’s a lying weasel just like Carney. They know why they’re being shut out. Why can’t they make it even more interesting and start throwing garbage? They’d do it in the UK.

    Hey guys, I’m wondering if you all could help me with a little project:

    Back ~the year 2000, I did a lot of learning about the history of the state of Israel, the area generally known as Palestine, etc. .. . I’ve been asked by a friend for some links to primary sources regarding this whole Israel/ Palestine thing, and I can’t even remember what links I used, much less if they even exist anymore. There’s fantastic info out there, but I want primary sources from links that can’t be accused of bias. (Really hard, that last bit).

    I know to recommend Mark Twain’s Innocents Abroad for a description of the Palestine Area when ruled during the latter years of the Ottoman Empire. So that’s a good start.

    But does anyone have any recommendations for sources from the time of the Balfour declaration through, say, the 6 Day War?

      • zmalfoy says:

        thank you– have marked to read sometime tomorrow when I’m more properly awake!

      • This is a very informative article for those interested in the history of how Israel ame to be. It is worth the read and follow up of investigative factual findinds well backed up!

        • I’m glad this subject came up. It’s definitely a topic that most people are completely ignorant about, despite it’s crucial role in understanding current events and the war going on right now. I need to read a lot more of this.

    • frenchreader says:

      There are descriptions by Gustave Flaubert, Marl Twain, Lamartine of a land called “Judée” that the journalist Joseph Farah uses in various articles I read.
      On the terrible demos happening in France, I want to make sure that people are aware that except for an insignificant group of hard core leftists/communists, the huge majority of people demonstrating/rioting are NOT real French but muslim arab/african immigrants with French ID papers, which do NOT make them French by the way …

      How deeply sorry I may be about the anti-semitic riots in France because I am a supporter of Israel, I am afraid that Jews in France are now getting a taste of their own medicine. For so long, progressive Jews have been the moving spirit of multiculturalism, claiming that genuine French were racists, nationalists and so on. And now, they are attacked by the same barbarian hordes they wanted us to welcome. Like De Gaulle once said, oil and vinegar will never blend …

      • zmalfoy says:

        Merci! I found the Mark Twain– I’ll look up the Flaubert and the Lamartine.

        I’ve suspected that the protests were mostly “Immigrants” and a few hardcore commies. Still distressing to read about.

        Evan Sayet, an American Jewish Commentator/Comedian, recently wrote a post regarding the American Jew’s habit of voting Democrat that I found rather enlightening: http://evansayet.com/another-take-jews-vote-democrat/ It may not explain why the European (and specifically, French) Jews vote the way they do, but it might be related.

      • Very well said Frenchreader! While I believe in supporting Israel and the Jews I also believe that much of the tragedies that befell the Jews were self inflicted in many ways. Let me make myself very clear hear! In no way do I or would I ever condone any of the atrocities that befell the Jews, ever! Unfortunately for the majority the ones who make decisssions, often without our knowledge and behind the scenes, bring about the outcome of suffering for the majority! In their quest for their “Motherland” many innocent Jews have suffered for the whole and the decission makers, the bankers, the masterminds make decissions that lay people cannot fathom but often pay the price or carry the majority of the burden of those decissions.

    Some background on getting put on the gubmints blacklist. Don’t know anything about this website, but it sure is interesting reading.

  9. This kind of evil is kinda fun to watch. The only thing she can come up with, “We restored American leadership,” is a total Orwellism. Not just a lie, but the exact opposite of what everybody knows really happened.

    And don’t listen to their favorite theme allah akbar ……..
