New Probe Confirms Harry Reid’s Long History of Corruption Written by Bob Adelmann The seemingly Teflon senior senator from Nevada, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, has been forced to respond to charges made in a two-part investigation into his dealings published last week at RealClearPolitics. The initial investigation looked into multiple claims of corruption, and responses from Reid’s PR people failed to deflect them. Adam O’Neal led off with a relatively innocuous charge that in 2012 and 2013 Reid’s campaign staff spent some $30,000 buying appreciation gifts for his donors from a store owned by his granddaughter. It was a small thing: The amount spent by his staff was seven times more than the staff spent elsewhere, combined. In the […]

Pulitzer Prize – winner Chris Hedges: Using fake evidence is usual Washington tactic April 28, 2014 08:30 Chris Hedges Download video (215.3 MB) The crisis in Ukraine and the steadily dropping temperature in relations between Moscow and Washington made many talk about a new Cold War; and many others are worried it may turn ‘hot’. But there’s another war going on right now: the information war. US Secretary of State Kerry has already attacked RT, calling it “Putin’s propaganda machine.” But Washington itself uses dubious evidence and fake facts. What is the information war? What methods is America using? Sophie talks to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and veteran correspondent Chris Hedges.

The Keiser Report

One of our favorite news shows is The Keiser Report. In the first half, Max and Stacey discuss current topics, mostly with insider views of the financial system of Britain, USofA and beyond. They are very expert, accurate and incisive – also flamboyant, clever and cute. The second half is sometimes of little or no interest, but others are great. Max interviews unusual experts from a very wide range of fields and current topics. They are big fans of crypto-currencies, which, in our financial situation, hold little interest at all for us personally. The second half of this show, Episode 590, is HUGE. The guest interviewed remotely from San Francisco pulls together the missing BIG MONEY reasons the Bilderberg Group […]

wi-fi freeloaders cut off

Out in the boonies, we have only two choices for Internet access. Neither is great, but surprising me, the cell-phone provider from a tower 4.5 miles away is unreliable while the satellite 25,000 miles away is pretty good by comparison. For about the same price, both limit us to 10 gigabytes per month anytime and an additional 10 gigabytes in the middle of the night. In my case that means I can get a couple hours of bonus bytes between 0600 and 0800 fairly often. I use that for our heavier consumption downloading video news programs like The Kaiser Report and SophieCo which take around 220 Kb for each half-hour show. Even with those shows shifted into “bonus byte” time […]

ignore at your peril

The obfuscators have their mystical language so you can admire their superior knowledge and assume you just don’t understand economics. That has been the design of Keynesian economics from its inception. You could learn Austrian Economics. It does, after all, not only make sense, it proves itself reliable time after time, regardless of when and where you apply it. Making it much easier, the two charts on this page give it to you in a clear, simple picture. You don’t have to even read a little pamphlet to GET it. Pictured here is what happens when you allow individuals to print money out of thin air – for fun and profit. Even the uneducated can utilize the lower chart […]

Ukrainian army switches to Russian side

Anti-govt protesters seize Ukrainian APCs, army units ‘switch sides’ (VIDEO clips) Editor’s note: the report published by RT has five short video clips that you can see at their site (link below). It appears that the Ukrainians are a bit brighter than our non-Oath-Keeping military and paramilitary attack dogs. Get short URL Download video (3.67 MB) Kiev’s military faced off with protesters in east Ukraine on Wednesday to sort out their differences…and found none. Soldiers appeared reluctant to go into battle against anti-government activists. When Ukrainian Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs) entered downtown Kramatorsk as part of Kiev’s military operation against anti-government protesters in the east of the country, they were stopped in their tracks, surrounded by crowds of local residents.
