U.S. Sends Hundreds Of Thousands Of Bombs To Guam As North Korea Threat Looms
October 19, 2017

The Air Force munitions stockpile in Guam recently received a 10 percent boost, according to the U.S. military.

A total of 816,393 munitions assets valued at over $95 million dollars were delivered to Andersen Air Force Base between August 21 and September 30, 36th Wing Public Affairs revealed in a statement Wednesday.

The US military can’t even make a bullet that isn’t coated in depleted uranium and now we’re going to drop the stuff all over NK? Trump don’t like their leader so he’s going to decimate their citizenry and infrastructure and spread DU across the landscape. I’m sorry but if it comes to it, being convicted of war crimes would be getting off easy, I hope the celebration after the storm does for him what it did for Hitler.

… for the past 25 years the United States and its allies have routinely used radioactive weapons in battle, in the form of warheads and explosives made with depleted, undepleted or slightly enriched uranium.

While the Department of Defense (DOD) calls these weapons “conventional” (non-nuclear), they are radioactive and chemically toxic. In Iraq, where the United States and its partners waged two wars, toxic waste covers the country and poisons the people. U.S. veterans are also sick and dying…

Black Death Plague Warnings Issued – Nine Countries On Alert: Death is Coming

OMG SOMEBODY CRY WOLF,,, Swine Flu, Bird Flu, Simian Flu and all sorts of variants to the aforementioned to include Ebola and other flesh eating maladies have predominated the News cycle, and had the sh!t hyped out of them and petered out. The boogeyvirus has been a staple of flu season news reporting for the last 2 decades and it been a total waste of breath.

If ten thousand healthy people don’t kick the bucket within 24 hours of each other from the same bug, then they shouldn’t even bother reporting it. None of the other bugs even claimed 10,000 victims total in their latest incarnations.

There is an illness afoot alright, it’s the cry wolf syndrome that mutates into the Ovine Flu, you can catch it through the airwaves or newsprint, do you have it? Have you ever paid for a flu shot?♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

Trump’s Health Insurance Costs Rates are going up 7 percent to 38 percent

Yessiree Bob, the Trump executive order on health insurance is going to raise premiums 7 – 38% across the whole system. Remember when he promised his health care plans would be cheaper and better? Well they are not cheaper or better.

This Is How Much Trump’s Obamacare Sabotage Increased Health Insurance Costs

Rates are going up 7 percent to 38 percent more than they would have otherwise.

“President Donald Trump’s decision to cut off billions of dollars owed to health insurance providers under the Affordable Care Act caused those companies to substantially increase premiums to cover their losses, according to an analysis published Friday.

Enrollment on health insurance exchanges like HealthCare.gov begins Nov. 1 and runs until Dec. 15 in most states; a few have later deadlines. Consumers who use these exchanges or purchase their coverage directly from a health insurance company or through a broker can expect to see large rate hikes when they shop for plans. Prices already were set to rise before Trump’s action exacerbated the problem.

The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation studied documents that health insurance carriers submitted to regulators in 32 states and the District of Columbia. These documents detail price changes for health insurance policies and the justification for those changes.

Among those states, Trump’s action caused premium increases that range from 7 percent to 38 percent higher than they would have been for mid-level “Silver” health plans, the Kaiser Family Foundation reported. The analysis includes numerous examples of how specific insurers dealt with Trump’s decision to deny their reimbursements, based on information they provided to state insurance agencies.

This month, Trump halted payments to health insurance companies serving low-income customers. These so-called cost-sharing reduction payments are intended to reimburse insurers that provide discounts on out-of-pocket costs for people earning up to 250 percent of the federal poverty level, or $30,150 for a single person.

The Affordable Care Act requires health insurance companies to reduce deductibles and other forms of cost-sharing for eligible enrollees. The federal government is supposed to repay the companies for the expense. The payments are worth $7 billion this year and $10 billion next year, according to the Congressional Budget Office.”

We American’s already pay enough tax to provide free health coverage for all. Taxes do not have to increase one iota to provide single payer or universal coverage in the US. Nobody seems to understand that taxes are We the People’s payment to We the People and as such WtP should have the last say as to how they are spent.

A full one third of the budget goes to the military industrial complex which provide no benefit to Joe/JoAnn Average tax payer. Military personnel are used as wiseguys for an organized crime syndicate that operates under WtP noses. Much of the tax revenue the MIC receives goes to creating weapons that are sold elsewhere. That boils down to a social program for the wealthy where they privatize the profits, the only way that could ever be fair to the taxpayer is if the profits were taxed at 90%. This practice is fascism writ large, besides, nobody not turning a profit should like the selling of munitions to other nations who may turn around and bite us in the butt with them.

There you go, WtP can make the world safer and healthier just by reapportioning where our taxes get spent. We’d already be there if Bernie had gotten elected. As for the the folks that don’t want government involved in the welfare of it’s citizens like in all the other industrialized nations, just go away.♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

Who are you kidding? White Nationalist and Nationalist are one and the same. You so called Nationalist do not congregate and if you did there would be no black, brown, red or yellow people among your ranks. You simply do not need an organization to wish well for your nation, that is ingrained into any individual and therefore Nationalism is already rampant in any organization from the Cub Scouts to the PTA or the Serra Club, it’s promotion don’t need no dedicated organization.

The Nationalist here dropped the word White from their title and cry they are not racist but wish to regress to a time in history when there was the political will to discriminate against and keep minority races out their neighborhoods, schools, and jobs. And in their place.

They should rebrand themselves as Regressive Nationalist and their slogan should be, “Make America Great – Discriminate”. That’s not racism, that’s just the way the mop flops.♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

Kim ready to send message to Trump, May Launch Largest Missile Yet

Trump has ramped up his tough rhetoric against North Korea over its nuclear and missile programs since starting a 12-day trip to Asia on Sunday. Speaking in Tokyo on Monday, Trump renewed his warning that the “era of strategic patience” with North Korea was over.

The U.S. leader, who will visit South Korea on Tuesday, has rattled some allies with his vow to “totally destroy” North Korea if necessary to defend the United States or its allies, and with his dismissal of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a “rocket man” on a suicide mission.

Kim has called Trump a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.”

How it became a crime to be poor in America

Peter Edelman

In the United States, a system of modern peonage – essentially, a government-run loan shark operation – has been going on for years. Beginning in the 1990s, the country adopted a set of criminal justice strategies that punish poor people for their poverty. Right now in America, 10 million people, representing two-thirds of all current and former offenders in the country, owe governments a total of $50bn in accumulated fines, fees and other impositions.

The problem of “high fines and misdemeanors” exists across many parts of the country: throughout much of the south; in states ranging from Washington to Oklahoma to Colorado; and of course in Ferguson, Missouri, where, in the wake of the killing of Michael Brown, revelations about the systematic criminalization of the city’s poor black residents brought these issues to national attention.

As a result, poor people lose their liberty and often lose their jobs, are frequently barred from a host of public benefits, may lose custody of their children, and may even lose their right to vote. Immigrants, even some with green cards, can be subject to deportation. Once incarcerated, impoverished inmates with no access to paid work are often charged for their room and board. Many debtors will carry debts to their deaths, hounded by bill collectors and new prosecutions.Many debtors will carry debts to their deaths…

Mass incarceration, which has disproportionately victimized people of color from its beginning in the 1970s, set the scene for this criminalization of poverty. But to understand America’s new impulse to make being poor a crime, one has to follow the trail of tax cuts that began in the Reagan era, which created revenue gaps all over the country.

The anti-tax lobby told voters they would get something for nothing: the state or municipality would tighten its belt a little, it would collect big money from low-level offenders, and everything would be fine.

Deep budget cuts ensued, and the onus of paying for our justice system – from courts to law enforcement agencies and even other arms of government – began to shift to the “users” of the courts, including those least equipped to pay.

Exorbitant fines and fees designed to make up for revenue shortfalls are now a staple throughout most of the country. Meanwhile, white-collar criminals get slaps on the wrist for financial crimes that ruin millions of lives. Though wealthy scofflaws owe a cumulative $450bn in back taxes, fines and fees from the justice system hit lower-income people – especially people of color – the hardest.

Community policing turned into community fleecing.“Broken windows” law enforcement policy – the idea that mass arrests for minor offenses promote community order – aided and abetted this new criminalization of poverty, making the police complicit in the victimization of the poor. Community policing turned into community fleecing. Enforcing “quality of life” rules was touted as a way to achieve civic tranquility and prevent more serious crime. What it actually did was fill jails with poor people, especially because those arrested could not pay for bail.

Budget cuts and the new criminalization have inflicted other cruelties as well. Under “chronic nuisance” ordinances created by underfunded police departments, women in some poor communities can be evicted for calling 911 too often to seek protection from domestic abuse.

Roosevelt is DEAD. His policies may live on, but we’re in the process of doing something about that as well.” -Rush Limbaugh

The article just sums up another battle front in the war on the middle class, another avenue to divert capital ever upwards to penthouses of Park Place and Boardwalk.

When the upper crust finally completely dismantles the Social Safety Net, you will wish it was back in place and fully funded. You will never again lament that they are taking some paltry percentage of your tax remittance and using it to providing relief for the needy.

For if you’re still doing well come that day, the cold, tired, hungry, huddled masses will kick your door in, kick your teeth in and empty your pantry. And you thought they were just lazy!♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

PDT May Not Make It 4yrs

The latest concerns come from Greg Valliere, chief global strategist at Horizon Investments, whose views on Wall Street and Washington are widely followed. In his daily note Tuesday, Valliere offers a number of concerns:

  • Trump is “at least 50 pounds overweight,” an estimate that may be a bit of an overshot. During a taping with Dr. Oz during the 2016 campaign, Trump was found to be 6 feet 3 inches tall and weigh 236 pounds, which would put him right on the border of “obese,” with a body mass index of 29.5, meaning he would need to lose 36 pounds to get to a “normal” BMI.
  • He “loathes exercise,” uses a cart for golf and struggled to walk up a hill during the last G-10 meeting.
  • A Secret Service agent source of Valliere’s professed that “he has never seen anyone with worse dietary habits” and “never saw him eat a piece of fruit.”
  • Trump’s food choices tend to be well-done steaks, cheeseburgers and french fries.
  • The president only sleeps four hours a night, is “angry most of the time” and “profanely berates aides.”

“He has not, to our knowledge, had a physical in over a year, or if he has, the results have not been disclosed,” Valliere said.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment.

There’s his problem, he’s sexually frustrated, and he can’t reach around his derriere far enough to do a good job. You add those 2 things together and you are going to be angry most of the time. I’m the leader of the entire free world and I can’t get any and my butt hole itches. Reminds me of the Bush joke, “When George Bush has sex, he has to be on the bottom because he can only f.uck-up!” All joking aside, Trump needs to put some fiber in his diet and get some exercise or the next time he has to walk to a Summit Meeting he may not make it.♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

Democrats win big in elections tonight

This election was a bellwether, or harbinger, a undeniable indicator of a profound sea change that will occur at the midterm elections when a boatload of Republicans are drown by the tsunami of discontented voters. There’s no way Trump can stem the tide, but if he don’t make any more waves between now and then, maybe the Republicans can stay afloat… Like that’s going to happen!

AGW forced Climate Change is not up for debate

At the north pole, Arctic sea ice reached a record low wintertime maximum extent on March 7, 2017. At the south pole, sea ice around Antarctica hit its lowest extent ever recorded by satellites at the end of summer in the Southern Hemisphere on March 3. The combined Arctic and Antarctic sea ice numbers were at their lowest point since satellites began to continuously measure sea ice in 1979 – the equivalent of having lost a chunk of sea ice larger than Mexico.

Minimum Ice Extent reached Sep 13, 2017 two days earlier than usual. The yellow line depicts the average minimum ice extent over the last 30 years. The Arctic Ice reflects 75% of the sun’s energy back into space, the open ocean absorbs 90% of the sun’s energy. This seasonal ice loss event is an automated ever strengthening positive feedback loop with negative connotations for life on Earth. It’s not up for debate, the Arctic is thawing!

Aunt, world-renowned psychologist, estimates Trump’s IQ to be near 200

Trump VS Bush IQ Smackdown

MENSA MODERATOR: Mr. Bush you have won the coin toss and elected to go first. Your question is, “What weighs more, a ton of rocks or a ton of tissue paper?”

Bush: What is that some sort of retard test, of course the rocks outweigh the TP, Turd Blossom.

MENSA MODERATOR: No! I’m sorry your answer is incorrect. President Trump you can steal, What weighs more, a ton of rocks or a ton of tissue paper?

TRUMP: I need to know if the tissue paper is wet?

MENSA MODERATOR: What on Earth for? Never mind, the tissue paper is brand new, unused, factory fresh tissue paper.

TRUMP: That’s important to know, it would be impossible to arrange the tissue paper on top of the rocks with out it tearing if it was wet. However in this case Tissue Paper covers Rocks. Tissue Paper carries more weight than Rocks. Final Answer.

What Is “Venus Syndrome”?

Venus Syndrome” is not a metaphor, it is a scientific scenario. The term should be self explanatory, but just to be clear, Venus syndrome is a scenario in which climate and atmospheric feedback loops are triggered that can’t be switched off. Under this scenario, as greenhouse gasses build up, and cause planetary warming, yet more greenhouse gasses are released which causes still more warming. This trajectory does not end in a balmy tropical resort Earth, but rather a planet that is closer to hell. Like Venus, Earth would become a pressure cooking inferno with virtually no life.

There are countless forms of anthropogenic damage to our planet which are all contributing factors pushing Earth toward this scenario, but one stands out above the rest. Based on all available data, if the ongoing global geoengineering programs are allowed to continue, “Venus syndrome” will be the likely end result for our planet, and sooner than almost any can imagine. Any that confuse this information with the rhetoric and hypocrisy of Al Gore and his carbon credit scams is making a mistake. What we face is real and has little to do the long list of self proclaimed “environmentalists” and “environmental” groups who have all chosen to turn a blind eye to the most dire and immediate challenge faced by all life on Earth short of nuclear catastrophe, global aerosol geoengineering.

But Venus Is Much Closer To The Sun, Earth Could Never End Up In The Same State, Right?

Wrong. Venus has many more similarities to our Earth than most realize. Venus is close to the same size, and a similar composition to Earth. Though there is still ongoing debate, the most recent science data suggests that Venus once had an atmosphere and oceans, not unlike Earth. All things being equal, Venus would not be so much warmer than Earth, but something went horribly wrong on Venus.

So What Happened?

Venus underwent a “runaway greenhouse effect”. There are a number of likely contributors to this effect which are similar in nature to what is taking place on Earth at this time. Like the sun shining through the glass on a greenhouse with no vents, the thermal energy gets in, but it does not get out. The “balance” that once sustained our planets life support systems are lost. As the scale then tilts to one side, warming, the “runaway effect” begins to feed itself. Once it progresses far enough there is no turning back, no stopping it. In the case of Venus, the average temperatures due to the “runaway greenhouse effect” are over 800 degrees.

What Is Tilting Things So Far Out Of Balance?

Though there are many contributing factors of anthropogenic damage which are negatively effecting Earth’s natural systems at this time, based on all available data one outweighs all others, global weather modification/geoengineering programs.

Geoengineering is the “elephant in the room” that is completely ignored or outright denied by nearly all climate change/environmental groups and organizations. It is of course a given that all governmental organizations deny the glaring reality of the ongoing geoengineering programs. This is in spite of the fact that the very same agencies and administration officials are actively proposing global geoengineering programs be implemented immediately, again, as if they have not long since been fully deployed.

Atmospheric saturation with geoengineering nano particles, and the ever more apparent jet stream manipulation with ionosphere heater facilities like HAARP, are literally decimating Earth’s life sustaining systems.

More than 1500 scientists from 184 countries have issued a desperate call for immediate action as they warn the planet is on the verge of an impending environmental collapse.

And it’s not the first time. Here’s some context:

25 years ago, a group of global minds dubbed The Union of Concerned Scientists and more than 1700 independent researchers (which included the majority of living Nobel laureates in the sciences at the time) issued the World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity, a rallying call to stop the course of environmental destruction that humanity has set in motion since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.

In their study they expressed concern about the diminishing ozone layer, the dwindling availability of freshwater, depletion of marine life from the oceans, forest loss, climate change and the continued human population growth.

They stated the Earth was rapidly approaching the point of no return, with humanity pushing the planet’s ecosystems beyond their capacity to support the web of life.

However, mainstream media ignored the document completely, with prestigious newspapers like The New York Times and The Washington Post going as far as to say it “wasn’t newsworthy”.

Scientists at the time suggested we had to stabilise the human population, cut greenhouse gas emissions, stop using fossil fuels and aggressively reduce deforestation in order to reverse the alarming collapse.

In 2017, 25 years after the report, an even bigger group of scientists has issued a follow-up document called The World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice, published in the academic journal BioScience.

With 15,000 signatories from all ends of the Earth, the document is probably the most supported published journal article of all time.

The updated document states how the threats pointed out in the 1992 study have gotten far worse:

“We have unleashed a mass extinction event, the sixth in roughly 540 million years, wherein many current life forms could be annihilated or at least committed to extinction by the end of this century.”

In 25 years since the original document, the Earth’s population has increased almost 35%, animals are disappearing at an unprecedented pace, carbon emissions driven by the use of fossil fuels have only increased, as have unsustainable farming practices, deforestation and loss of marine life.

6th Mass Extinction Of Plants & Animals Underway, Rate Of Climate Change Unprecedented In Geologic History

Tally of Life Under Threat!

I love it! Not the fact that we will soon be fighting for our very survival and the Muffin heads will be eating their young after they’ve gone through their pets to eek out a few more days. I get a thrill every time I hear or see in print, the, “on steroids” quip, because I coined the phrase! I was blogging on Thom Hartmann’s site and noted that if the current events of that day were owed to serendipity and not directly to prophecy, then the serendipity was on steroids! The next day on Hartmann’s radio program I hear him say that GWB’s budget strategy was nothing more than Reaganomics on you know what, and he used it on air a few more times for this and that and it went viral and I’m almost famous!

But that’s neither here nor there, getting back on track, I am going to point out what is going to bite our asses for you to either ignore (stop reading here), deny or come to grips with. I can remember 30yrs ago, the Arctic Ice was perennial it didn’t disappear in the summer, ever! The new norm is always changing because the yearly minimum ice extent is always growing. A tipping point has been breached, the Arctic is thawing and in so doing, burping methane.
