Celebrate Al Quds March Day

from Zero Hedge:

Marching For Terrorism In London? No Problem

Today, Sunday June 10 in London, the yearly so-called Al Quds Day march — Al Quds is the Arabic name for both Jerusalem and for the day, invented by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who led Iran’s 1979 revolution that overthrew the Shah — is taking place. The march is, basically, a call for the destruction of Israel, sometimes also Jews in general. Many other cities, among them Toronto, Berlin and Tehran, will also be “celebrating” the day.

Last year in London, around 1000 people waved countless Hezbollah flags, in honor of Iran’s proxy terrorist organizationwhile chanting slogans such as “Zionists/ISIS are the same, only difference is the name” and “From the river to the sea – Palestine will be free”. They also carried banners that said, “We are all Hezbollah,” (what a comforting thought for the British). read more

Poland Wants The US Military Presence To Be Permanent And Is Ready To Pay

Moscow has expressed its concern over NATO’s military infrastructure that has been built adjacent to the Russian border. On May 28, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov declared that Russia is prepared to take appropriate measures in response. That statement was a reaction to Warsaw’s plans to host a permanent US military presence on its territory. read more

Starbucks – Get an Overpriced Coffee and Hangout with a Vagrant

This new leftist feel-good Starbucks policy of allowing anyone in to just hangout and use the restroom is utterly ridiculous. And the way they are instructing their employees to use a hands-off approach leaves them virtually helpless.

It reminds me of the movie Demolition Man. Actor Rob Schneider plays a futuristic police dispatcher in this Utopian society where everyone gets along. A violent criminal from the past is introduced into the society and begins wreaking havoc – beating up cops.

Schneider and his fellow pacifist officers are watching the carnage on video. They are all horrified – and then Schneider exclaims: “We’re police officers. We’re not trained to handle this kind of violence.” read more

Has the Tariff War Begun?

from Zero Hedge:

Here It Comes: China About To Launch “Tens Of Billions” More In Tariffs

This morning the market has been on edge over, and traders are obssessed with just one question: how will China retaliate to Trump’s trade war and tariffs… further. After all, the initial response of a modest 15-25% tariff on $3 billion in 128, mostly agricultural, products, seemed laughably small and appeared to be more of a warning shot than a real response to Trump’s $50BN in Section 301 tariffs.

One answer was revealed moments ago when as we reported that China’s ambassador to the US Cui Tiankai did not rule out the possibility of scaling back purchases of Treasuries in response to Trump’s tariffs. read more

Stunning: California Dems Reject Feinstein for Reelection

from Zero Hedge:

In Unexpected Snub, California Democrats Refuse To Endorse Feinstein For Reelection

In a stunning – if not altogether unexpected – blow to long-time California Senator Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, the California state Democratic Party opted not to endorse their own senior senator as she prepares to start campaigning to defend her seat in the 2018 midterms.

Delegates to the state party convention instead favored progressive state Senate leader Kevin de León, over Feinstein by a 54% to 37% margin, according to results, which were announced early Sunday. And while neither candidate reached the 60% threshold required to receive the party endorsement outright for 2018, de Leon’s camp claimed it as a profound victory. read more

Trump says Release the FISA Memo

from Zero Hedge:

Trump Ignores DOJ Warning, Notifies Sessions He Wants FISA Memo Released

 President Trump broke with the Department of Justice last week by calling for the release of a four-page “FISA memo” purportedly summarizing widespread surveillance absues by the FBI, DOJ and Obama Administration, reports the Washington Post.

The President’s desire was relayed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions by White House Chief-of-Staff John Kelly last Wednesday – putting the Trump White House at odds with the DOJ – which said that releasing the classified memo written by congressional republicans “extraordinarily reckless” without allowing the Department of Justice to first review the memo detailing its own criminal malfeasance during and after the 2016 presidential election.

The decision to release the memo ultimately lies with congress. read more

We’ll be Drowning in Oil!

from Zero Hedge:

Trump Announces Massive Expansion In Offshore Drilling; Environmentalists Outraged

In December 2017, during the twilight days of the previous administration, as one of Barack Obama’s last executive actions the former president formally blocked offshore oil and gas drilling in most of the Atlantic and Arctic Ocean, responding to a call from environmentalists who say the government needs to do more to prevent drilling in environmentally sensitive areas of U.S.-controlled oceans.

The move was not surprising: Obama had been expected to take the action by invoking a provision in a 1953 law that governs Outer Continental Shelf offshore leases, and he did just that to block drilling in federal waters in the Arctic’s Chukchi Sea and most of its Beaufort Sea. He also protected 21 underwater canyons in the Atlantic Ocean from drilling. read more

33 Shocking Facts That Are All Bush’s Fault

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

The other day Rush Limbaugh spoke of an article posted on Zero Hedge. If you’re not already – you should become a regular reader.

 

The article entitled “33 Shocking Facts Which Show How Badly the Economy Has Tanked under Obama.” Okay, it’s a bit wordy but it does alert you.

 

After reading it I couldn’t let it go without editorializing on at least some of the 33 facts.

 

If you’re an Obama sycophant, you may want to make yourself a little sign to hold up while reading. When you feel “The One” has been somehow maligned, just hold it up in front of you. The sign should simply read, “It’s All Bush’s Fault” or “Obama Inherited This Mess”.

 

Once a month the “jobs” or employment numbers are released. Oftentimes the media hail improvement in the figure, as if we were heading in the right direction. What they fail to report, due to agenda or ignorance, is that, “#2: Since Obama has been president, seven out of every eight jobs that have been ‘created’ in the US economy have been part-time jobs“.

 

That is an astounding figure and ties directly into the reason that, “#4: It is hard to believe, but an astounding 53% of all American workers now make less than $30,000 a year”.

 

Now you’ll notice the last quote stated “American workers“, for we’ve seen and heard that many welfare recipients clear far north of $30,000, tax-free.

 

I wrote an article some time ago trashing LBJ’s “Great Society” and “War on Poverty”. In it I stated that the poverty rate when the “war” began in 1965 was about 10%. Decades later and trillions of dollars of transfer payments later led to a rate still around 10%. Well, sad to say, there is an update: “#14: The poverty rate has shot up to 16.1%. That is actually higher than when the war on poverty began in 1965”.

 

Which dovetails directly into: “#15: During Obama’s first term, the number of Americans on food stamps increased by an average of about 11,000 per day”.

 

I live in a city of about 100,000 people. That means every 9.5 days the entire population of my city is added to the food stamp rolls. Incredible!

 

College, higher education can be important. It’s essential for many vocations, but it’s not for everyone. Yet it’s what we are told – to achieve you must go to college. So parents/students take out massive loans to pay for school. Then what? “#23: In 2008, the total amount of student loan debt in this country was $440 billion. At this point, it has shot up to about $1 trillion.”

 

Why so much? Well, debt is the amount one owes – hasn’t paid back. If one has no job, how is one to pay the debt? Couple that with the crony socialism of the university’s ability to continually raise their tuition rates without suffering any Administration or media backlash and voilà, massive student loan debt.

 

Putting a bold punctuation on this is: “#33: When you break it down, the amount of new debt accumulated by the US government during Obama’s first term comes to approximately $50,521 for every single household in the United States. Are you able to pay your share?”

 

Well are you? This country, like those in Europe, cannot continue down this path. If things don’t change, and I mean radically and quickly, that $50,000 payment will come due.
