Let's Make America Pure Again

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 21:35:44 +0000


At Black Agenda Report, Pascal Robert believes in heightening the distinctions, because it makes it a lot simpler to understand what drives America without muddying it up with Democrat identity politics. So he describes;
Why America Deserves Donald Trump

...Trump deserves to be president because he so effectively illustrates all the ugly hypocrisies, contradictions, venal greed, and crass lust that is at the core of this Nation’s identity.

His honest reflection of what America truly is explains why I don’t fear his rise. Trump is simply a political manifestation of all America has ever been: arrogant, belligerent, dishonest, and motivated by sheer avarice.

UPDATED: Dr. Terry Wahls' protocol, which she used to greatly reverse her own MS, could help Hillary if she has Parkinson's Disease

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 16:17:02 +0000


I've recently learned about the dramatic, positive results obtained by both Dr. Terry Wahls, as well as Dr. Steven Gundry. Their dietary recommendations, which I'll characterize as "ancestral/paleo", are rather similar. In Wahls' case, though, her protocol is optimized for fighting against neuro-degenerative diseases, like the one she has. (Hence, e.g., a bigger emphasis on sulphur containing vegetables.)

What is going on?

We have known for more than a decade that our voting machines are insecure at best and fixed at worst. Now all of a sudden there is all this talk about the voting machines from Versialles. Is this just more teeing up for a war with Russia? Or is something else going on?

Ralph Nader calls TPP "economic treason", but will he challenge Obama to a debate on that charge?

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 13:54:58 +0000


From an interview that Ralph Nader gave David Feldman over a year ago:
"the more you know about this (TPP), the more you realize why I call this economic treason, and I mean it clinically" (3:28)

Is Sean Smith Responsible for the Deaths at Benghazi?

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 17:24:03 +0000


The last time I talked to Sean, the night before the terrorist attack, he told me, "Mom, I am going to die." All security had been pulled from the embassy, he explained. 
Patricia Smith (mother of Sean Smith) to the Republican National Convention, 7/17/16

According to Patricia Smith, her son Sean, an “Information Management Officer” for the State Department, disclosed sensitive information regarding the security posture of a US diplomatic outpost in a phone call to his mother. Moreover, based on Patricia Smith's statement, Sean lied to her about the security situation, making the temporary Benghazi mission sound much more vulnerable than it was.
