• I’m so glad we can separate poor leadership from gov’t organized extermination of an entire group of people, living within their own collective internal borders, here. Native Americans and former slaves are breathing a great sigh of relief, knowing USians would never go there. Or, ever support such concepts and formalize them into gov’t policy.

  • We can count our lucky stars this is only one person’s opinion and not a whole country’s view, right? I mean the Home Party said something similar and they’re aligned with the Likud Party, but it’s not like we could indict a whole ruling party based on some outlier’s remarks in a widely read newspaper, right? It couldn’t be governing and acting on a national consensus, could it? I mean that would be like the outliers in the Republican Party speaking for the whole party, right? Which would be so unfair to the people who are not in the KKK, Aryan Brotherhood or White Citizens Councils and happen to promote the Tea Party and fellows like Sen. Jeff Sessions and religious leaders of the Republican Party like James Dobson, et al. I’m really glad America would never support such a country who’s leaders sound like the same people who let Hitler try to purge Europe of people they found ” unsavory “. Time to cue up Randy Newman’s Sail Away, here, isn’t it?

  • Oregon defeated this before. It was the brainchild of Phil Keisling and the DLC types who liked his ” moderate ” and ” bipartisan ” plans for the state of Oregon. It was a steaming pile of guano idea, then, and has only ripened more. It only weakens the power of the urban votes ( progressive/minority ) of the cities and gives the suburbs ( DLCers/Moderate Republicans ) more clout. And, Chuck Schumer endorsing it makes perfect sense since he’s the best guano salesman in NYC. And, that makes him more full of guano than Bloomberg, Trump, HillBillary et al. Now, that says ” buy more guano ” than any political reform ideas I’ve heard of from the UniParty. Methinks the DLCers are very concerned the Democratic Party is going to split if the urban centers, where their base ( $living wage, real healthcare for all ) demands more power and less compromise. Splitting the party is the best thing that could happen to this country. There are at least 5 minority parties in this country already but only one party is being represented. That’s, of course, the 1% Party of Wealth and Fascism. Did I mention that Chuckie Schumer is full of guano?

    Great piece, here. Yes, anyone who’s paid attention sees the ” devil’s snowball ” rolling down on the unwashed. Albright is a piggish, front for the PTB.

  • With some DOD cuts written into in next year’s Congressional budgets and Republicans in the House already on record as trying to overturn these meager and symbolic actions: small wars and international mischief breaks out, as usual. With 52% of our spending, at least, already going to the MIC it is still not enough. Now we get Pres. Poroshenko, on CNN, comparing the Ukrainian situation as similar to our 9/11. And, calling on the world to step in. Step in to what, exactly? More war in the Middle East and now in Russia’s backyard? As Robert Parry is reporting, the U.S. is fully capable of tracking the missals used, and his sources are saying it was not the separatists but an apparent Ukrainian ” false flag ” operation. At this point, who knows, but every thinking American must understand that ” the first victim of war is the truth “. And, they’ve been lied to by their gov’t for decades and decades. Sadly, it’s the SOS, different year.

    Reading the words of Home Party’s Shaked reminds one of the speeches given in Congress when America was killing Native Americans in the 1800s.

    Sec. Kerry looked horrible, for sure, but he stumbled and mumbled through talking points without seeing the obvious irony ( cynicism ) in his answers to ( Rotten ) Candy Crowley. She’s trying to push the meme, later reinforced by Sen. Diane Frankenstein, that since Russia, and by extension Putin, supposedly gave the missals to [...]

    Brandon- Thanks for the article on Venezuela. ” There are no Rockefellers in Venezuela ” and I think the 99% in that country can be damn glad of that. But, they do have the 1% crew from The Center for International Private Enterprise & The U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Led, of course, by that old buddy of Henry Kissinger, Greg Lebedev. The Maduro Gov’t would be wise and prudent to keep these Oil & Gas Thieves out of their country if at all possible. Can they say Allende? Well, neither can Allende, thanks to the dirty work of Mr. Kissinger and Mr. Lebedev.

  • ” The Merchants of Menace ” Has not a Palestinian child eyes? Hath not a Palestinian child hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions, fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, ( or far more powerful ones )? If you poison them do they not die? And, if you wrong them, shall they not revenge? If they are like you in the rest, they will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong a Palestinian child, what is his humility? Revenge. If a Jew wrong a Palestinian child, what should his sufferance be by Jewish example? Why revenge. The villainy you teach a Palestinian child, he will execute, and it will go hard but he will better the instruction. Just sayin’.

    So, I CMA’d on the #s, sort of, at the end. My point is they can pay more, period. And, so can everyone on up the scale. But, then there’s tax policy, etc., which is a different kettle of fish, too. Thanks for the TPI info.

    Now, as far as I can tell, the 1% aren’t defined as billionaires, really. The 1% is anyone making over, what, $330K, AGI. The 1% to the .001% probably have a better chance of ” hanging ” together, but that would appear to ideological in nature, not income per se, IMO, But where I come from in Portland, the 1% are still pretty easy to identify by zip code, basically. And, those zip codes can afford to pay more in taxes, support the living wage, universal healthcare, et al. And, so can people in L.A. NYC, Chicago, Seattle, Boston, San Francisco, Miami and everywhere else who are making $500K ( AGI ) a year. And, that fact is not in dispute on the left, trust me.

    I can’t imagine, even if I was that wealthy, that I’d hang out with people who actually despise the poor. I’ve known some pretty wealthy Dems, but if they hang out at all, they usually don’t ” hang ” with Republicans. Now, they may go to functions requiring their attendance, but IMO, their left politics is pretty up front. Money buys that privilege, at least. And, the Kennedy’s politics isn’t left, really, it’s fairly moderate. They seem to be more informed by their very liberal Irish religious beliefs. Which is best seen through the womenfolk. The 1% left, IMO, are usually writers, artists, musicians, environmentalists, etc. Just sayin’.

    I usually agree with your insights and totally agree on the phoniness of these polls. But, please tell me more about this 1% Left? Is it merely semantics or did I miss something here? As to Paul; he’s beating Christie in New Hampshire and Christie is 4th in Iowa. Not a chance in hell he’s going anywhere no matter what the MOTU do. He’s got 2 grand juries to answer to and a disaster coming in his state budget. Neither of these conservative leaning states wants a guy who is seen as a bad money mgr and a corrupt cop. Even the Republicans can’t sell that crap, again, this soon after Bush/Cheney.
