Third Wayers Go Head-to-head.....

You can tell a Republican because they strike out like a wimp on breaking balls.....

Wall Street Crooks Spent Billions To Silence Whistle-Blower; It Didn’t Work



The Young Turks * Published on Nov 17, 2014

“She tried to stay quiet, she really did. But after eight years of keeping a heavy secret, the day came when Alayne Fleischmann couldn't take it anymore.

"It was like watching an old lady get mugged on the street," she says. "I thought, 'I can't sit by any longer.'"

Fleischmann is a tall, thin, quick-witted securities lawyer in her late thirties, with long blond hair, pale-blue eyes and an infectious sense of humor that has survived some very tough times. She's had to struggle to find work despite some striking skills and qualifications, a common symptom of a not-so-common condition called being a whistle-blower.

Fleischmann is the central witness in one of the biggest cases of white-collar crime in American history, possessing secrets that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon late last year paid $9 billion (not $13 billion as regularly reported – more on that later) to keep the public from hearing."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

- I believe that the Attorney General has mistaken ''culture with sewerage.'' I think that the way you go at it Eric is, you start by cleaning your glasses so things won't look so diffuse. You can start with reading this article.

Then you start ''prosecuting the insulation'' and I swear you'll be surprised at how fast you start locking up those ''mis-cultured top executives who actually ordered the frauds to begin with.''

As Terence McKenna told us many years ago: ''Culture is not your friend.''

Drug Warrior Mitch McConnell Tied To Millions In Cocaine



The Young Turks * Published on Nov 17, 2014

"Before the Ping May, a rusty cargo vessel, could disembark from the port of Santa Marta en route to the Netherlands in late August, Colombian inspectors boarded the boat and made a discovery. Hidden in the ship’s chain locker, amidst its load of coal bound for Europe, were approximately 40 kilograms, or about ninety pounds, of cocaine. A Colombian Coast Guard official told The Nation that there is an ongoing investigation.

The seizure of the narcotics shipment in the Caribbean port occurred far away from Kentucky, the state in which Senator Mitch McConnell is now facing a career-defining election. But the Republican Senate minority leader has the closest of ties to the owner of the Ping May, the vessel containing the illicit materials: the Foremost Maritime Corporation, a firm founded and owned by McConnell’s in-laws, the Chao family.

Though Foremost has played a pivotal role in McConnell’s life, bestowing the senator with most of his personal wealth and generating thousands in donations to his campaign committees, the drug bust went unnoticed in Kentucky, where every bit of McConnell-related news has generated fodder for the campaign trail."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

TYT: KKK Invites Blacks, Jews, Gays & Hispanics To Join



Published on Nov 15, 2014

"White supremacist organisation, the Ku Klux Klan is rebranding as the "new Klan" by trying to increase membership to Jews, black people, gays and those of Hispanic origin.

However, all those wanting to join the ultra-right wing society will have to wear the white robes, masks and conical hats. The Klan is estimated to have between 5,000 and 8,000 members according to figures released in 2012.” *

Abolishing the death penalty! Yay!
Saving the White Race! Uh..... yeah, okay. Yay!



Nick Hanauer: Beware, fellow plutocrats, the pitchforks are coming



TED * Published on Aug 12, 2014

Nick Hanauer is a rich guy, an unrepentant capitalist — and he has something to say to his fellow plutocrats: Wake up! Growing inequality is about to push our societies into conditions resembling pre-revolutionary France. Hear his argument about why a dramatic increase in minimum wage could grow the middle class, deliver economic prosperity ... and prevent a revolution.



- Go long on pitchforks and guillotines because I don't see them taking his advice.....



Bank Target: HSBC closes accounts of Syrians in UK



RT * Published on Aug 12, 2014

British banking giant HSBC has been accused of racial profiling after closing accounts belonging to Syrian refugees and students living in the UK. Earlier, it emerged that the bank had shut down the accounts of high-profile UK-based Muslim organizations. RT's Polly Boiko met with some of HSBC's former clients.


- From premier global drug laundering bank, to a racial profiling scofflaw and tool of the decadent PTB. Quite a leap down......




Racial discrimination seems to be only covered by the MSM when there's bloodshed.....

Food Fight: ‘Latin America will not bow to EU pressure, will tighten ties with Russia’



RT * Published on Aug 12, 2014

The EU is reportedly planning to put pressure on Latin America to stop it from boosting its agricultural exports to Russia. In response to sanctions, Moscow imposed a food embargo on a range of EU products, and countries like Brazil and Chile are being canvassed to step in and fill the gap. For more on this RT is joined by Robert Oulds, head of the Bruges Group think-tank.




So if you're scoring at home:

The EU not only:

(1) screws their own farmers but they want to;

(2) starve the Russians while;

(3) simultaneously restraining the right of international trade by Latin America; and

(4) demand a continuation of providing them cheap Russian natural gas so they're all warm and cozy this winter while the Russians are eating their cold, cold turnips.

I think that covers the main points.

- I know, I know. You're thinking, what I'm thinking: ''This Global Governance ''On-The-Job Training'' Program is not working out......''

'Washington acts only when its agenda is at stake'



RT * Published on Aug 11, 2014

Embattled Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki refuses to step down as the country's President names a new Premier. Anti-war activist Brian Becker says Washington has turned its back on Maliki because he no longer serves U.S. interests in Iraq.


- The US foreign policy machine works better when there's oil around. You know, to play one side against the other for the profits.....

Michael Brown Shooting Once Again Exposes Racist Media



breakingtheset * Published on Aug 11, 2014

Manuel Rapalo reports on the shooting of 18 year old St. Louis resident, Michael Brown, highlighting the disproportionate violence against blacks in the America, as well as the race-baiting by the news media that helps perpetuate a cycle of police violence.




“Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.

How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. ”
