Scott Walker: 'If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world' Read more:

Wow! This guy is dangerous............

Speaking to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington D.C. Thursday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker once again pointed to his experience battling Wisconsin's public sector unions in 2011 as an indication of how tough he would be when dealing with terrorists.

"If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world," Walker said in a speech to what has been described as a "rowdy" crowd of conservative activists and politicians.

"I want a commander-in-chief who will do everything in their power to ensure that the threat from radical Islamic terrorists do not wash up on American soil," Walker said just prior to equating his controversial legislation that effectively ended collective bargaining rights for public employees to international conflicts.

Julian Assange appeals to Sweden's supreme court over arrest warrant

Source: The Guardian

Julian Assange is taking his appeal to Sweden’s highest court in a final attempt to persuade a Swedish judge that the arrest warrant against him should be lifted.

His lawyers will ask Sweden’s supreme court on Wednesday to agree that the “severe limitations” on Assange’s freedoms since he claimed asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2012 to escape extradition to Sweden are unreasonable and disproportionate to the case.

In August 2010, the WikiLeaks founder and campaigning journalist was accused by two women of rape and sexual molestation, but he has not been charged because the prosecutor insists she is unable to interview him about the allegations.

Prosecutor Marianne Ny has declined invitations by Assange to do so in London, where he has taken refuge in the embassy to avoid a perceived threat of extradition to the US for publishing military secrets. Assange denies all the charges.

United Nations Calls for an End to Industrialized Farming


In 2013, the United Nations announced that the world's agricultural needs can be met with localized organic farms. That's right, we do not need giant monocultures that pour, spray and coat our produce with massive amounts of poisons, only to create mutant pests and weeds while decimating pollinators and harming human health. Don't believe the hype: We do not need genetically modified foods "to feed the world."

From my experience, many of these - how shall we say it - "worker bees" (i.e the GMO salesmen) who spread this propaganda, actually believe conventional tactics are necessary to ensure food security. They've drunk the Kool-Aid and cannot envision another possibility. The changes threaten their very existence

Scott Walker: Denying health care to low-income people helps them 'Live the American Dream'

Defending his fellow Republican governors’ decision to block Medicaid expansion in their states, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Friday suggested that denying health coverage to additional low-income Americans helps more people “live the American Dream” because they won’t be “dependent on the American government.”

Walker has recently leveled some criticism at other GOP leaders for accepting Obamacare’s optional Medicaid expansion, saying they shouldn’t necessarily trust the government to come through with the federal funds to cover the policy. During an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday, Walker was asked whether his position stemmed from an “ideological criticism,” and if he believes the handful of Republican governors implementing this provision of the health law are not “genuine conservatives.”


And people voted for this guy? And we also voted to accept the medicaid money?

World War II vet, 90, vows to continue fight to feed homeless amid Florida city ban

The 90-year-old Florida man who continues to break a new state law by feeding the homeless has become the catalyst for heated conversations between local government officials and charity organizations.

Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler alluded to the national attention that World War II veteran Arnold Abbott has brought to the city after the elderly man was twice issued citations in the same week in October for staging makeshift feeding stations for those in need. The two debated the controversial homeless feeding ordinance on local television Nov. 9.

Seiler said the new laws, which prohibit camping, panhandling, food-sharing and other “life-sustaining activities,” are in fact meant to provide the homeless with safe, secure and sanitary conditions where they could seek help.

Too Pig to Fail...........

Did Elizabeth Warren Just Change Her Tune on Running for President?

Senator Elizabeth Warren gave an interview to People magazine for this week’s issue and was asked for roughly the thousandth time if she planned to run for president. But her answer to this query was different than all the others:

But is the freshman senator from Massachusetts herself on board with a run for the White House? Warren wrinkles her nose.

“I don’t think so,” she tells PEOPLE in an interview conducted at Warren’s Cambridge, Massachusetts, home for this week’s issue. “If there’s any lesson I’ve learned in the last five years, it’s don’t be so sure about what lies ahead. There are amazing doors that could open.”

She just doesn’t see the door of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue being one of them. Not yet, anyway. “Right now,” Warren says, “I’m focused on figuring out what else I can do from this spot” in the U.S. Senate.

As a veteran Warren-watcher, I can say with certainty this is more ambiguous than she’s ever been on the subject. “I don’t think so,” “amazing doors that could open,” and “right now” are the traditional vernacular of a someone flirting with a campaign—-and someone who wants you to know it.
