    WASHINGTON – The extraordinarily large number of senior military officials being relieved of duty during the Obama administration – nine generals and flag officers this year alone and close to 200 senior officers over the last five years – is part of the creation of a “compliant officer class,” according to a U.S. Army intelligence official. Since WND’s ongoing coverage of what some top generals are openly calling a “purge” of senior military officers who run afoul of Obama or his agenda, some military personnel have been speaking out. According to a veteran Army intelligence official who spoke to WND...

  • Hillary's new star turn: heroine of children's books ("Queen Elizabeth, Joan of Arc... Hillary")

    In a presidential election year, there will, of course, be political biographies. But political biographies for children? This month three children's books about one candidate — Hillary Clinton — hit the shelves. Aimed at a variety of age groups, the books deliver a similar message of female strength, though admittedly one likely to go down easier in Democratic-leaning households. Jonah Winter's picture book "Hillary" (Schwartz & Wade, ages 4 to 8) begins with a slightly tongue-in-cheek overview of history's notably strong women: Queen Elizabeth, Joan of Arc ("she was kind of intense"), Rosie the Riveter, "and now there is Hillary."...
  • They Live, We Sleep: A Dictatorship Disguised as a Democracy

    ...A 2014 study conducted by Princeton and Northwestern University concluded that the U.S. government does not represent the majority of American citizens. Instead, the study found that the government is ruled by the rich and powerful, or the so-called “economic elite.” Moreover, the researchers concluded that policies enacted by this governmental elite nearly always favor special interests and lobbying groups. In other words, we are being ruled by an oligarchy disguised as a democracy, and arguably on our way towards fascism—a form of government where private corporate interests rule, money calls the shots, and the people are seen as mere...
  • Bipartisan attempt to control your doctor

    07/24/2013 2:19:26 PM PDT · by TurboZamboni · 5 replies
    Who will control your doctor? Yesterday the U.S. Energy and Commerce House health subcommittee voted to pass a version of the bipartisan 70-page draft "SGR repeal" bill that will change the way Medicare pays your doctor and other clinicians. The bill repeals a longstanding contentious system of yearly payment cuts under a law called the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) -- but then it puts government in charge of doctors. Congress has regularly passed annual "doc fix" bills to stop the SGR pay cuts. Thus, if the SGR cuts were finally allowed to take effect next year, Medicare payments to doctors...

    Graffiti artist Shepard Fairey’s message was heard loud and clear in the silence of a Sanford, Fla. courtroom during the search of an impartial jury for the George Zimmerman trial. On the first day of jury duty, a Seminole County teen wore one of Fairey’s trendy black caps with the “OBEY” logo known worldwide. When it was his turn to be questioned in the courtroom Thursday, the recent high-school graduate wore an "OBEY" tank top. “I can’t help but see that you have something written on your shirt,” said defense attorney Don West, who looked puzzled in a navy blue...

    Fox news has their medical guy on a little segment a few minutes ago, "on the couch", I guess it was Saturday morning fox and friends. The guy's big advice for everyone: a) Think of the "positives". What does he list as the positives ? The surgeons, the government's first responders, the police, etc. He says to focus on the heroics of people working for the medical community and the government. Not once did he say anything about individual citizens who were not part of the machinery of state. His comments suggest that everyone should be cheering on the implementers...

    Instead of paying for their lunches with crumpled dollar bills and loose change, students in Carroll County schools are having their palms scanned in a new check-out system — raising concerns from some parents that their children's privacy is being violated. The county is one of the first localities in Maryland to use the PalmSecure system, in which children from kindergarten to 12th grade place their hands above an infrared scanner. It identifies unique palm and vein patterns, and converts the image into an encrypted numeric algorithm that records a sale.

    Feds Seek Prison Time For Obama "Hope" Artist Prosecutors want Shepard Fairey sentencing to serve as a warning SEPTEMBER 5--Federal prosecutors want Shepard Fairey, the artist who created the Barack Obama “Hope” poster, to serve time in prison following his misdemeanor conviction for destroying and fabricating documents in connection with a civil lawsuit over the iconic campaign image. In advance of Friday’s scheduled sentencing of Fairey in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, the Department of Justice has filed a memorandum arguing that a prison term for the 42-year-old artist would be “appropriate.” However, prosecutors did not specify how long Fairey...

    Obama reads riot act to European leaders in late night phone calls and orders them to take more dramatic action on debt crisisBy Daily Mail Reporter Last updated at 12:55 PM on 11th November 2011 Barack Obama has read the riot act to the leaders of several European countries - saying more dramatic action is needed to avert a eurozone meltdown. The U.S. President made telephone calls to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Italian President Giorgio Napolitano late last night. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said the president had demanded faster action from Europe. It came as...
  • Congressman Calls for Executive Action to Suppress Congressional Rebellion

    Contending that Congress’ failure to enact President Obama’s “Jobs Bill” amounts to “disloyalty to the duly authorized ruler of this nation,” Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-Ill) called for “extraordinary measures to restore orderly compliance with the steps the President deems necessary for the country.” “No one can argue that these are not critical times for America,” Jackson said. “The time for disputation has passed. It is now time for action. Since Congress will not obey, the President must take the actions he thinks appropriate by using his executive powers unilaterally.” Jackson sought to draw parallels with the secession crisis of...

    A West Coast legend does his part. ​Yup. This just happened. Right after receiving the victorious news from New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg that Occupy Wall Street doesn't have to move out of Zuccotti Park after all, protest organizers learned they'd been blessed with a Shepard Fairey original. An East Coast art-blog editor who's been keeping up with the artistic aspects of OWS (and oh, there are many -- in L.A. too!) told WNYC radio of Fairey's "Occupation Party" invite: "I think it's really great that it's an upward looking positive image, as well as it tries to tie...

    The first lady of television has called on critics of President Obama to show 'some level of respect' - even if they weren't in support of his policies. Speaking on a special edition of Morning Joe today, Oprah Winfrey said the presidency is a position that 'holds a sense of authority and governance over us all'. The chat show host, who also talked about her new network OWN and the end of her long-running show, has been extremely vocal about her support for the president and made many campaign appearances during his race to the White House. Morning Joe host,...

    Late yesterday, Gallup came out with new numbers on the generic ballot question—which party’s candidates would you vote for in the election for House of Representatives? Among registered voters Gallup shows Republicans ahead by 46%-42%, about as good a score as Republicans have ever had (and about as bad a score as Democrats have ever had) since Gallup started asking the question in 1942. However, Gallup also shows the results for two different turnout models. Under its “high turnout model” Republicans lead 53%-40%. Under its “low turnout model” Republicans lead 56%-38%. These two numbers, if translated into popular votes in...

    Rep. Dave Obey (D-Wis.) came to Congress in the spring of 1969 after winning a special election to succeed Republican Melvin Laird, who had left the House to become President Richard Nixon’s defense secretary. At the end of this year, Obey will retire, and as a bookend of sorts for this magazine devoted to new faces, POLITICO asked Obey to talk about what changes he’s seen in Washington’s culture.Below are excerpts from the interview recorded after Obey, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, had flown back from memorial services in West Virginia for his late colleague on the Senate Appropriations...

    A fascinating and depressing interview with David Obey: The problem for Obama, he wasn’t as lucky as Roosevelt, because when Obama took over we were still in the middle of a free fall. So his Treasury people came in and his other economic people came in and said “Hey, we need a package of $1.4 trillion.” We started sending suggestions down to OMB waiting for a call back. After two and a half weeks, we started getting feedback. We put together a package that by then the target had been trimmed to $1.2 trillion. And then [White House Chief of...

    WASHINGTON -- Gen. Stanley McChrystal's comments about President Obama and other administration officials went off like a roadside bomb at the highest levels of Washington yesterday. Defense Secretary Robert Gates blasted the general for "poor judgment" and ordered him to return immediately to Washington to discuss the matter face-to-face today. Gates said McChrystal had apologized to him and others named in the Rolling Stone article -- but Gates declined to let him off the hook. "I believe that General McChrystal made a significant mistake and exercised poor judgment in this case," he said in a statement. Wisconsin Democrat Rep. David...

    House Appropriations Chairman Dave Obey said he will hold off on new Afghanistan war funding until there is some resolution of a long-delayed economic relief bill extending aid to states and the jobless as well as tax breaks for individuals and business. With a July 4th Pentagon deadline looming, the chairman’s new posture is a blow to the White House and more than ever, explicitly links war funding with liberal concerns over domestic priorities. The so-called “extenders” bill—now bogged down in the Senate—carries with it $24 billion that Democrats want to help cash-strapped states meet their Medicaid payments next year....
