I was just chatting with a neighbor, and we were laughing about the term "politically correct". Political because you are being deceptive, not saying what you really mean, but correct because you avoid hurting someone's feeling or offending them. :)

June 21, 2017 "Information Clearing House" - One of the most rational bills ever proposed, barring the Feds from giving money and weapons to child murdering terrorists, has almost ZERO support.

For the last several decades, the US government has openly funded, supported, and armed various terrorist networks throughout the world to forward an agenda of destabilization and proxy war. It is not a secret, nor a conspiracy theory, America arms bad guys.

Given the insidious history of the American empire and its creation and fostering of terrorist regimes across the globe, it should come as no surprise that the overwhelming majority of politicians would refuse to sign on to a law that requires them to ‘Stop Arming Terrorists.’ And, that is exactly what’s happened.

H.R.608 – Stop Arming Terrorists Act was introduced by Rep. Gabbard, Tulsi [D-HI] on January 23 of this year. The bill doesn’t have any crazy strings attached and its original cosponsors are a mix of Republicans and Democrats — highlighting that it transcends party lines.

“For years, our government has been providing both direct and indirect support to these armed militant groups, who are working directly with or under the command of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, all in their effort and fight to overthrow the Syrian government,” Gabbard said in an interview earlier this year.

The text of the bill is simple. It merely states that it prohibits the use of federal agency funds to provide covered assistance to: (1) Al Qaeda, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), or any individual or group that is affiliated with, associated with, cooperating with, or adherents to such groups; or (2) the government of any country that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) determines has, within the most recent 12 months, provided covered assistance to such a group or individual.

The only thing this bill does is prohibit the US government from giving money and weapons to people who want to murder Americans and who do murder innocent men, women, and children across the globe. It is quite possibly the simplest and most rational bill ever proposed by Congress. Given its rational and humanitarian nature, one would think that representatives would be lining up to show their support. However, one would be wrong.

After nearly 5 months since its introduction, only 13 of the 535 members of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors. What this lack of support for the bill shows is that the federal government is addicted to funding terror and has no intention of ever stopping it.

To add insult to treason and murder, Senator Rand Paul [R-KY] introduced this same legislation in the Senate. He currently has zero cosponsors.
What this lack of support for the bills and the recent moves to arm the terrorist regimes illustrates is the fact that the US has no intention of ever stopping terrorism. Trump, just like Obama and Bush before him, will continue to foster the growth of terrorism to enrich those who profit from war.

Terrorism is necessary for the state. War, is the health of the state.

Without the constant fear mongering about an enemy who ‘hates our freedom,’ Americans begin questioning things. They challenge the status quo and inevitably desire more freedom. However, when they are told that boogeymen want to kill them, they become immediately complacent and blinded by their fear.

While these boogeymen were once mostly mythical, since 9/11, they have been funded and supported by the US to the point that they now pose a very real threat to innocent people everywhere. As the recent attacks in the UK illustrate, ISIS is organizing and spreading. Even the terrorists in the UK had ties to the British government who allowed them to freely travel and train with ISIS-linked groups because those groups were in opposition to Muammar Gaddafi, who the West wanted to snub out.

It’s a vicious cycle of creating terrorists, killing innocence, and stoking war. And, unless something radical happens, it shows no signs of ever reversing.

The radical change that is necessary to shift this paradigm back to peace is for people to wake up to the reality that no matter which puppet is in the White House, the status quo remains unchanged.

Trump is proving that he can lie to get into power and his supporters ignore it. If you doubt this fact, look at what Trump did by calling out Saudi Arabia for their role in 9/11 and their support for terror worldwide prior to getting elected. He now supports these terrorists and his constituency couldn’t care less.

This madness has to stop. Humanity has to stop being fooled by rhetoric read from teleprompters by puppets doing the bidding of their masters.

Please share this article with your friends and family to show them how their supposed ‘leaders’ — except for a few good ones — are content with funding the enemy, laying waste to rights, and condone the murder of innocence.

Senate's healthcare plan looks to be a giant stinker. If Rs can't get this *** together after all these years, they deserve all the blame and complaints that are coming to them.
 
The Senate’s 142-page proposal, unveiled on Thursday, would eliminate or reduce key benefits provided by Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act; lower taxes for the wealthy; strip funding from the women’s reproductive health provider Planned Parenthood; and dramatically cut and restructure Medicaid, America’s public health insurance program for low-income and disabled Americans.
Why would anyone not be a fan of this?

....file under whoops....no....make that stupid whoops....mmmm, maybe just dispense with whoops, and go straight stupid....yeah more better...

Last fall, in the months/weeks leading up to the presidential election, we spent a fair amount time talking about how Democratic pollsters were setting themselves up for a massive embarrassment on election day with their obviously rigged polling data that consistently suggested Hillary had a commanding lead. In fact, just weeks before the election, the Washington Post published a poll showing that Hillary was well on her way to a 'blowout' 12-point victory (we wrote about it here: This Is How WaPo's Latest Poll Gave Hillary A 12 Point Advantage Over Trump). Needless to say, that never happened and those pollsters suffered the humiliating consequences of their biased 'math.'

Unfortunately, as last night's special election in Georgia makes all too clear, no one on the left seems to have learned any lessons from their presidential poll rigging debacle last November.

In fact, one prominent pollster even declared just 6 days before the election that if Ossoff failed to win it would mean that "MATH IS DEAD AND DATA IS BROKEN."
Of course, the problem isn't that "math is dead" or "data is broken"...the problem is that rather than using data to arrive at a solution pollsters have resorted to starting out with a solution and then solving for the data
.

So how does this keep happening? Well, it's not that surprising in light of the fact that Democrats literally wrote a playbook on how to rig polling data through "oversamples." As we noted last October in a post entitled "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'", it all apparently has a lot to do with "oversampling" various minority groups
.

Tried to fly the 10:56 non stop San Diego to Orlando. Young woman who checked my bags(@35 per..no 1 bag free)was also working the gate at check in and as we boarded. We were about @15 minutes later than Frontier's posted schedule.
No empty seats. It turned @1132 and the captain announced that flight is cancelled due to 1130 pm cerfew, that San Diego has in place for outbound flights.
As people on board the plane started going crazy we poured out back to the ticket counter to hear what Frontier was offering as a solution.many people had small kids...
It was a disaster.
They offered deffered food using a coupon. No rooms for those in need.. not my worst travel experience but close..

Two recent headlines can perhaps help answer that question, when it comes to identifying the real nature of the Democratic Party USA.

First, the headline from a Vox report (June 20): Why Jon Ossoff’s loss is bad news for Democrats’ 2018 hopes. The other headline is from the Business Insider (June 21): The US is ‘flatlining’ in social progress compared to countries like Canada and Germany
Even as Trump’s overall approval ratings have been sinking steadily, Trump’s vocal and active support for Ossoff’s opponent did not translate into more votes for Ossoff, as Democratic Party leaders had expected. Proof positive that you can’t just be against Trump; you really do have to produce a positive platform that attracts enough voters
Sanders is, at this point, willfully draining millions of hours worth of youthful energy and creativity down the political gutter called Democratic Party USA. The real political function of Democrats has been, and continues to be, diverting the genuine opposition and choking it. Any function they may have once preformed legislating policies beneficial to the working people is long gone
.

Ever since the rise of Trump as the presidential nominee back in 2016, and even more so now that Trump is the president, despite all manner of facts telling them to go for a radical left economic platform in order to get back a congressional majority, the Democrats’ strategy has become one of moving further to the right in order to woo ‘disaffected’ opulent Republican voters, while emphasizing to their traditional constituents that they, Democrats, are the only ones who care about women’s issues, LGBTQ issues, minority issues, and so on.

Class-economic issues, though, are stubbornly off Democrat’s campaign promises and platforms
The Democratic Party presents the biggest organizational quandary for the American left today. The current state of the Democrat’s standing with the voters would not be a problem for the left in general if the likes of Sen. Sanders did not spend all their political energy spreading the illusion that the party can be re-oriented. A lot of honest progressives inside the Democratic Party work with sincere intent that’s channeling the energies of millions of the youth mesmerized by radical-sounding rhetoric. But the enthusiastic youth must pay attention to the Democrat’s history. As generations of radical American leftists have observed and lamented, the Democratic Party is the biggest obstacle to the creation of a nationwide political party of the left
.

On all three key fronts of class battles for the last forty years, the Democrats have fought to advance the interests of capital. On the question of taxation, they have been somewhat better than the Republicans, of course, but they have never exhibited a wholehearted effort to roll back tax cuts for the rich implemented by the Republicans, nor have they ever proposed substantially raising taxes of higher income earners or corporations
On the question of attacking people’s real incomes and wages, Bill Clinton’s signing of the welfare reform act attacked the most vulnerable in our society. That may not be a direct attack on people’s incomes at first glimpse. However, taking away money and benefits from the most needy is not only a cruel testament to the depravity of ruling priorities, but more importantly when you attack the most vulnerable, you lower the floor for everybody. Together with the welfare reform, the NAFTA trade deal, which Clinton signed into law in December 1993, further eroded the standard of living of the American (and Mexican) workers
On the question of regulations, the Democrats may not have been as rabid as the Republicans in destroying regulations protecting safe drinking water or clean air, nor as militant at starving such regulations of funds, but their crown achievement was to work with the Republics keen on deregulating the key industry of interest to the top 1%: the financial industry.

By helping to destroy Glass-Steagall, Democrats helped to bring about the biggest financial disaster in many a generation, the largest total destruction of wealth among the lower classes since the Great Depression. As a result of the 2008 financial meltdown, millions of people lost their jobs, millions lost homes as their only source of wealth, and many millions are still reeling from that financial attack on the poor. Again, when you kick the most downtrodden, you lower the floor for everybody
.

Neo-liberalism is dying. What will replace it is either something more vicious or something more egalitarian. The choice is clear

Companies Can Either Make Things or Make CEOs Rich

by Sam Pizzigati
Fortune magazine estimates that Immelt will walk off with nearly $211 million, on top of his regular annual pay. Immelt’s annual pay hasn’t been too shabby either. He pulled down $21.3 million last year, after $37.25 million in 2014.

But Immelt’s millions don’t come close to matching the haul that his predecessor Jack Welch collected. Welch’s annual compensation topped $144 million in 2000. He stepped down the next year with a retirement package valued at $417 million
.

What did Immelt and Welch actually do to merit their super-sized rewards? What did they add to a GE hall of fame that already included breakthroughs like the first high-altitude jet engine (1949) and the first laser lights (1962)?

In simple truth, not much at all
.
“Rewards became perverted,” Immelt went on. “The richest people made the most mistakes with the least accountability.”

Unfortunately, and sadly, Immelt never took his own analysis to heart. As a rich CEO in his own right, he continued to make mistakes and suffer no particular consequences.

One example: After the Great Recession, Immelt froze the GE worker pension system and offered workers a riskier, less generous 401(k). Within five years, notes the Institute for Policy Studies, the GE pension deficit widened from $18 billion to $23 billion — even as Immelt’s personal GE retirement assets were nearly doubling to $92 million.

“If we want to slow — or better yet, reverse — accelerating income inequality,” the Harvard business historian Nancy Koehn noted a few years ago, “the most powerful lever we have to pull is that of outrageous executive compensation

Ignoring Reality

When her stunning loss became clear on Election Night – as the crude and unqualified Trump pocketed the electoral votes of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin – the Democrats refused to recognize what the elections results were telling them, that they had lost touch with a still important voting bloc, working-class whites.

Rather than face these facts, the national Democrats – led by President Obama and his intelligence chiefs – decided on a different approach, to seek to reverse the election by blaming the result on the Russians.
Obama, his intelligence chiefs and a collaborative mainstream media insisted without presenting any real evidence that the Russians had hacked into Democratic emails and released them to the devastating advantage of Trump, as if the minor controversies from leaked emails of the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta explained Trump’s surprising victory.

As part of this strategy, any Trump link to Russia – no matter how inconsequential, whether from his businesses or through his advisers – became the focus of Woodward-and-Bernstein/Watergate-style investigations. The obvious goal was to impeach Trump and ride the wave of Trump-hating enthusiasm to a Democratic political revival.

In other words, there was no reason to look in the mirror and rethink how the Democratic Party might begin rebuilding its relationships with the white working-class, just hold hearings featuring Obama’s intelligence chieftains and leak damaging Russia-gate stuff to the media.
....and here is a shout out to the drum SoCal has been correctly beating loud....

But the result of this strategy has been to deepen the Democratic Party’s reliance on the elites, particularly the self-reverential mavens of the mainstream media and the denizens of the so-called “deep state.” From my conversations with Trump voters, they “get” what’s going on, how the powers-that-be are trying to negate the 63 million Americans who voted for Trump by reversing a presidential election carried out under the U.S. constitutional process.
....and this....
A Letter from ‘Deplorable’ Land

Some Trump supporters are even making this point publicly. Earlier this month, a “proud deplorable” named Kenton Woodhead from Brunswick, Ohio, wrote to The New York Times informing the “newspaper of record” that he and other “deplorables” were onto the scheme.

“I wanted to provide you with an unsophisticated synopsis of The New York Times and the media’s quest for the implosion of Donald Trump’s presidency from out here in the real world, in ‘deplorable’ country. … Every time you and your brethren at other news organizations dream up a new scheme to get Mr. Trump, we out here in deplorable land increase our support for him.


“Regardless of what you dream up every day, we refuse to be sucked into your narrative. And even more humorously, there isn’t anything you can do about it! And I love it that you are having the exact opposite effect on those of us you are trying to persuade to think otherwise.

“I mean it is seriously an enjoyable part of my day knowing you are failing. And badly! I haven’t had this much fun watching the media stumble, bumble and fumble in years. I wonder what will happen on the day you wake up and realize how disconnected you’ve become.”

So, despite Trump’s narcissism and incompetence – and despite how his policies will surely hurt many of his working-class supporters – the national Democrats are further driving a wedge between themselves and this crucial voting bloc. By whipping up a New Cold War with Russia and hurling McCarthistic slurs at people who won’t join in the Russia-bashing, the Democratic Party’s tactics also are alienating many peace voters who view both the Republicans and Democrats as warmongers of almost equal measures of guilt.

While it’s certainly not my job to give advice to the Democrats – or any other political group – I can’t help but thinking that this Russia-gate “scandal” is not only lacking in logic and evidence, but it doesn’t even make any long-term political sense

U.S. Torture, A Saudi Coup And ISIS Crimes - "By, With And Through Allies"

The U.S. military and/or the CIA outsourced parts of their ongoing torture campaign in Yemen to the United Arab Emirates, reports AP. Some "interrogations" are done in the presence of U.S. personal and on U.S. ships:

MUKALLA, Yemen (AP) — Hundreds of men swept up in the hunt for al-Qaida militants have disappeared into a secret network of prisons in southern Yemen where abuse is routine and torture extreme — including the “grill,” in which the victim is tied to a spit like a roast and spun in a circle of fire, an Associated Press investigation has found.
Senior American defense officials acknowledged Wednesday that U.S. forces have been involved in interrogations of detainees in Yemen but denied any participation in or knowledge of human rights abuses.
...
At one main detention complex at Riyan airport in the southern city of Mukalla, former inmates described being crammed into shipping containers smeared with feces and blindfolded for weeks on end. They said they were beaten, trussed up on the “grill,” and sexually assaulted. According to a member of the Hadramawt Elite, a Yemeni security force set up by the UAE, American forces were at times only yards away.

There have long been rumors in Yemen that detainees were transported to U.S. ships off the coast for intense "interrogations":

@BaFana3 - 3:42am · 6 May 2016
All on #Yemen now : US aircraft carrier, 2 naval destroyers, amphibious ready group & Marine expeditionary unit. That's near 15,000 troops
Now I know whose ships the captured AQAP militants are being ferried to from Al Mukalla, Hadhramaut.

AP now:

A Yemeni officer who said he was deployed for a time on a ship off the coast said he saw at least two detainees brought to the vessel for questioning. The detainees were taken below deck, where he was told American “polygraph experts” and “psychological experts” conducted interrogations.
...
Two senior Yemen officials, one in Hadi’s Interior Ministry and another in the 1st Military District, based in Hadramawt province where Mukalla is located, also said Americans were conducting interrogations at sea, as did a former senior security official in Hadramawt.
...
Former detainees and one Yemen official provided the AP with the names of five suspects held at black sites who were interrogated by Americans.

The UAE had been part of the CIA's "black sites" torture apparatus. Its agents are thereby well trained. The U.S. military and/or the CIA now seem to have outsourced (vid) most of the "dirty" stuff to them. That does not make them less culpable.
http://www.moonofalabama.org/2017/06/more-us-torture-a-saudi-coup-and-isis-crimes-but-progressives-are-militant.html#more

....and btw, just to put things into perspective, UAE were the folks recently leading charge against evil Qatar....

But what you meant was they should be going out of business.

Informed of the president’s denial that he had recorded his conversations with Comey, a senior administration official replied, “At least that’s behind us.” When alerted to his apparent suspicions of Oval Office surveillance, the official replied in a text message, “fml.”

That’s shorthand for “*** my life.”

OBTW-some of Mueller's lawyers donated to democrats??

So did donnie

New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, the incoming Senate minority leader, will soon be the highest-ranking Democrat to go toe-to-toe with President-elect Donald Trump. Ironically, it is Schumer who has received more donations from the billionaire businessman than any of his fellow senators.
 
Schumer is starting from the wrong vantage point.
Democrats need to appeal to people on Trump's fringes. How is new health care paid for? By whom? Will the number of insured go up or down?
The cost? Who saves and who pays more?
Maybe Democrats need to watch old Ross Perot videos to understand that people want basics.
How can bringing less money into the tax system pay for more goods and services?
It can't..but trying to demonize the rich won't work..or it hasn't so far.
Trump is proposing to hurt his base..not only do that not understand or care, they are cheering him on..
 
Good post Unchained. Your words on Ross Perot are spot on. But the Dems long ago gave up being practical, about the time they gave up supporting labor. Like the GOP they sold their souls to bribery, so who knows what spine they have left. I sure haven't seen it from Schumer. He's less effective than Reid. And when the party needs passion, he has little.

As to the Republican health care plan, I won't say it's a disaster, but a disappointment. It's really little more than scaled back Obamacare, or Obamacare lite, again. One can split hairs, but when bold thinking would be welcome, it turns out to be pretty similar to the House plan really. Cut back the taxes Obama told the rich to pay, cut services to the poor over time, move us back to where we were before the ACA took effect, a few handouts to push people to private markets - with no guarantee or proof that will hold, or work out over time, etc.

So I'm left asking, really? All this time? Not just since the election, but all the time you've been complaining about the ACA once it passed? And the time before that even? All those months, years, and this is the best you've got?

About the only thing good out of it, was really in the House plan, and that is the (slight) expansion in HSAs. But even that doesn't do all it could.

Referring to Mr. Comey, the president said that “when he found out that I, you know, that there may be tapes out there whether it’s governmental tapes or anything else and who knows, I think his story may have changed.”
huh?

Mr. Trump said “there’s been no collusion, no obstruction, and virtually everybody agrees to that,”
Well, about 22% of his base believe that...

Perception of Trump's honesty and leadership skills were among the personal qualities gauged by the poll. Of those answering, 35 percent said Trump was honest, down slightly from 39 percent earlier in the month and a high of 42 percent on February 7.

During Donald Trump’s overseas trip two months ago, Palmer Report documented a number of instances in which Trump’s health appeared to be in freefall. He canceled several meetings. He seemed winded during a speech. He was seen being hauled a relatively short distance in a golf cart as other foreign leaders all walked. Now Trump’s own staffers are acknowledging that they’re concerned about his collapsing health
In other words, you’re not just imagining it. This dovetails with a recent report that Trump has been telling his associates he wants to resign, but he’s worried how history will judge him if he joins Richard Nixon in being the only ones to have quit the office
