Here's a report about a 26 year old man who allegedly punched an 80 year old and pushed him to the floor:

Congratulations, America. Your mask has slipped, and we can finally see what you are.

Mystery Virus Turns Deadly

A child in Rhode Island has died from the "mystery virus":

Should this virus continue to kill US children, everyone in government who let this disease into our country should be fired and (as far as I'm concerned) prosecuted for criminal negligence:

A Dictionary Reference to the War on ISIS

by Ben Schreiner / September 30th, 2014

2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force


The gift that just keeps on giving.


Bad Guys


Whoever it is that is currently being bombed and shot at by the U.S. and its “partners.”


Barbarians


Those committing war crimes without the use of cruise missiles and drones.


Chemical Weapons


A particularly heinous and savage munition no white phosphorous and napalm-using nation could ever stand to see deployed.


Coalition


A military alliance of democracy promoters comprised of the U.S., its European lackeys, and the medieval monarchies of the Gulf.


Collateral Damage


The inevitable killing of innocent civilians in military operations. Regrettable, but what’s one to do? Ground the drones and shelve the bombs? Never. Instead, just avoid having to even acknowledge any measure of regret by denying and concealing all occurrences. And if that fails, maybe a little blood money will be enough to shut the locals up.


Good Guys


The “moderates” receiving U.S. arms and cash in order to sell American journalists to those beheading “bad guys.”


Homeland Security


That which requires the endless bombing of faraway lands (mainly “Iraq”), in addition to the snatching up of every American’s personal communications.


Imminent Threat


A threat which won’t materialize in the immediate future, but nonetheless justifies the calls of those demanding that “something must be done.”


International Community


Those voting with the U.S. at the United Nations and joining its “coalitions.”


International Law


The internationally accepted rules governing states in their relations with other states.  Not applicable, however, to those within the “international community.”


Iran


An ancient land of rich history going all the way back to 1979, when 52 Americans were inexplicably held hostage by “violent extremists” for over one year.  So, needless to say, a nation long in need of “regime change.”


Iraq


A U.S. bombing target long suffering from instability outside of a brief period of stabilization occurring from 2003 – 2010.


Iraq War


A “mistake.”


ISIS/ISIL/The Islamic State


The reason du jour “something must be done.”  And accordingly, a much needed boon to the beleaguered military-industrial-surveillance complex.


Khorasan Group


An illusory group terrorizing the dreams of those consulting with “official sources.”


Liberated


All areas recently bombed by American fighters or falling under the control of occupying American forces.


Limited Strikes


A rebranding of Shock and Awe for a time of heightened “war fatigue.”


Middle East


A vast depository holding America’s “oil.”


Military Advisers


Combat troops deployed to fight a war that was said to have already been won.


Military Option


The only option serious policymakers will ever consider.


Mission Creep


The slow rollout of a military campaign occurring in piecemeal due to the dangerous case of “war fatigue” afflicting the politically immature American public.


Mistake


A U.S. war undertaken with the purest of intentions, but for some reason still concludes with a majority of Americans opposed to it.


Moderates


The “good guys” eating the hearts of “violent extremists.”


No Boots on the Ground


The deploying of a small enough number of American boots on the ground that Americans will neither notice nor care.


Objective Reporting


Giving equal weight to both sides of a story; that is, weighing the competing claims of “official sources” over whether “ISIS” poses a grave threat to “homeland security” or a dire threat to “homeland security.”


Official Sources


Those whispering horror stories about fictitious terror groups into the receptive ears of objective reporters.


Oil


A highly lucrative global commodity owned wholly by the U.S. and exchangeable in both blood and American dollars.


On the Table


The use of the “military option” (nuclear weapons and all).


Partners


Those helping to put an Arab face on the ritualized American bombing of Iraq.


Peace


The realization of U.S. full spectrum dominance throughout the “Middle East,” and the world more generally.


Political Solution


A solution to be sought once the much more profitable “military option” has been fully exhausted.


Public Opinion


The misguided policy judgments of the ill-informed and fickle masses.  Elite capitulation to such popular sentiments is to be avoided until the masses can be properly brought along.


Regime Change


Fixing the electoral mistakes of people in dispensable nations.


Responsibility to Protect


The responsibility to cloak imperial projects in the liberal guise of humanitarianism.


Saudi Arabia


A state governed by a benignly beheading clan of democrats kindly overseeing to the well-being of America’s “oil.”


Something Must Be Done


A phrase to be employed in the wake of attacks on American nationals or American interests. “Something” understood to mean “bombs”; “done” understood to mean “dropped.”


Syria


A necessary pit stop on the road to Tehran.


Terrorism


The use of violence—or the threat of violence—to attain goals that are political, economic, religious, or ideological in nature. Oh wait, that can’t be, because that would mean…


Territorial Integrity


A pillar of international law, holding that a state’s sovereignty is sacred. Well, sacred for any non-exceptional state, as exceptional states are obviously “not going to be restricted by borders.”


Victory


The perpetuation of endless war.


Violent Extremists


Locals resorting to violence to combat “liberating” American forces and their various proxies.


War Fatigue


The tendency of a weak-kneed American public to waver in its continued support of a just war. War fatigue is easily overcome through “objective reporting.”


World’s Policeman


A state acting within the international system as a cop would on his beat. That is, a state terrorizing and killing unarmed people of color with utter impunity.

Wildlife Populations Have Dropped By Half

The World Wildlife Foundation has issued a scary report:

"In less than two human generations, population sizes of vertebrate species have dropped by half," writes WWF Director General Marco Lambertini. "We ignore their decline at our own peril."

We humans are killing the planet:


And unless we voluntarily do something about it, our governments and/or the deep state will.

Perhaps the title of the Bloomberg report linked above indicates the source of the problem: "World's Biggest Market Crashes ..."

The earth is not a market. It's a living being, and it's not for sale.

Hard Choices, Or Criminal Ones ???

Here is a description of the latest pack of lies surrounding Hillary Rodham (a.k.a. Clinton to some of you):

http://america.aljazeera.com/opinions/2014/9/hillary-clinton-honduraslatinamericaforeignpolicy.html

What it seems to say is that Madame Secretary realized she was surrounded by criminals, so she decided the best course of action was to be a criminal herself.

That's the kind of shit which has wrecked this country and our standing in the world.

No more.

Anyone except Hillary in 2016.

More Ebola Infections Expected

So says a top doctor and former FDA scientist:

http://washingtonexaminer.com/top-doc-several-people-were-exposed...more-will-be-infected-by-dallas-ebola-case/article/2554213


How many? No one knows. But there are rumors of a second case already:


http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/10/01/texas-ebola-patient/16525649/


And let's be frank: Potential Ebola carriers, such as this patient in Texas, bear a degree of culpability for the spread of the disease. According to some reports, the patient apparently did not mention his travel history nor the possibility of Ebola when he first came to the hospital. What's up with that?

Nothing Justifies The Killing Of Innocent People, Unless They're Syrians

Obama ad-Dajjal just made it easier for our military forces to kill civilians with impunity:

http://news.yahoo.com/white-house-exempts-syria-airstrikes-from-tight-standards-on-civilian-deaths-183724795.html

What kind of horseshit is this?
