Patti Smith: "Globally unite for peace! It's not f*****g corny; it's what we f*****g need!"

Patti Smith Tells It Like It Is In Riot Fest Rant, Continues To Be Our F*****g Hero

"We do have the power! Our governments, our corporations would like us to feel defeated, but we have it with our numbers if we use it. Don't forget it!"
Smith exclaimed.



(Check out her speech, beginning at 6:30 in the video above.)

"People, you can change the f*****g world! Take heart, don't give up!" she continued, beginning to shake with rage and vigor. "Globally unite for peace! It's not f*****g corny; it's what we f*****g need!"

New Eyewitness To Palin Brawl: Bristol Was ‘Quite Violent’---"It was just so shocking"

"It was just so shocking," Roberta Thompson told TPM.

She mostly confirmed what her husband told multiple news outlets last week, saying that the two of them were right next to each other during the incident. But she provided her own take on how the events unfolded, including a portion that she said involved the eldest Palin daughter, Bristol Palin, and the owner of the house, Korey Klingenmeyer.

"What I saw was two girls run past and run towards Korey," Roberta Thompson said. "And then I just saw Bristol Palin start punching him in the face."

"It was quite, quite violent," she added.

She said Klingenmeyer was clearly upset about what was happening but maintained his composure.

"She kept punching him and then he just said, you know, 'You need to go,'" Thompson said.

"The American Dream Game"

Instead Of Holding Signs-Marchers Show Politician How They REALLY Feel & Throw Him In A Dumpster




An unruly mob of Ukrainian protesters took matters into their own hands today when marching outside of parliament. Instead of holding signs and telling the man how they felt in a polite discussion, they took Vitaly Zhuravsky and tossed him into a dumpster, adding on old tires and spraying water for good measure.

The protestors were railing against the member of the Economic Development Party because of his anti-demonstrating stance. According to NBC News, Zhuravsky has a "history of authorizing bills placing restrictions on anti-government protests and criminalizing libel did not appear to play well in his favor."

After he sat and took the punishment, Zhuravsky reportedly was able to make his way out of the dumpster to trash-free freedom again.

Saudis Lobbied John McCain & Lindsey Graham to sell War.

Saudis Lobbied John McCain & Lindsey Graham to sell War.

?


Bin Laden said he intentionally goaded America in to a war in the middle east to "bleed America to the point of bankruptcy." Well, as it turns out, ISIL and Saudi Arabia are trying to goad America into another war in the middle east and they've enlisted John McCain and Lindsey Graham to sell us that war.

An August 2013 the Wall Street Journal http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/09/16/1330029/-Saudis-Lobbied-John-McCain-Lindsey-Graham-to-sell-War reports that Saudi Arabia's Foreign Policy includes overthrowing Syrian government, which is Shiite, to put in place their own Sunni government so they, Saudis, can ultimately control Damascus.

The Saudi plan is to steadily strengthen carefully selected groups of rebel fighters not in the radical Islamist camp, with the goal of someday seeing them in control in Damascus
.

That's a hefty goal the Saudis have -- control Damascus. And they want 'who' to fight for 'their' goal to control Damascus? You guessed it, none other than the U.S. Military.

TO SUMMARIZE:
Saudi Arabia's ultimate goal is to control Damascus,
Saudi Prince Bandar appears to go to any length, including threats of terrorist attacks, to get his way,
Saudis are the largest bankroller for worldwide Sunni Terrorist groups: al-Qaeda, including ISIL, Hamas and the Taliban,
At one point, Saudi Prince Bandar expressed a desire for genocide against Shiites,
ISIL is committing genocide against Shiites,
Suspicions that ISIL is a covert operation by the Saudis,
2 years after Prince Bandar was put in charge of toppling the Syrian (Shiite) government, al-Qaeda in Iraq (ISIL) expands into Syria with lightening speed and as the most well-funded Terrorist group,
Saudi Prince Bandar enlisted Senator John McCain, Senator Lindsey Graham, early on, to goad America back into a middle east war so that Saudi Arabia can use the U.S. Military in securing Saudi Arabia's ultimate goal: control of Damascus, Syria.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand: "I wasn't in a place where I could tell him to go fuck himself."



"If I could have just melted in tears, I would have. But I had to just sit there and talk to him and I switched the subject and I didn't hear another word he said, but I wasn't in a place where I could tell him to go fuck himself."


-- Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), in an interview on HuffPost Live, on a labor leader who told her she was too fat to win a statewide election.

Toughest Of The Bunch: "He didn't drop one tear"



There are pictures of this little boy at the link --- he's a baby really, only 4 years old --- with bloody cuts all over his thighs.

Adrian Peterson released a statement saying that he is not a child abuser. But it's quite clear from that text message in which he is proud that his horrible beating did not produce any tears from his tiny little son (as well as the somewhat depraved act of forcing leaves into his son's mouth as he whipped him with a piece of wood) show that he is, even if he's never thought to define himself that way. It's a sick power trip that would make a 6'1 inch 220 pound professional athlete draw blood on a 4 year old as a punishment, regardless of how he rationalizes his intention.

I understand that there's a chance he's so damaged himself that he truly didn't know any better. But that doesn't mitigate the essential cruelty of his act or his attitude about it.

That poor little guy couldn't even let himself cry.
