I can't make comments or read comments on You tube now

I might use one of those spyware programs someone nicely put up

But does anyone know why this is happening?

Private foundation The Jesus fund super PAC gave 93% of its donations to secret entities

Huckabee super donor’s Jesus Fund keeps recipients of $26 million secret

The Arkansas man who dropped $3 million into the super PAC supporting Mike Huckabee‘s bid for the Republican presidential nomination for years handed out millions of dollars to a secret list of public charities through a pass-through private foundation called The Jesus Fund, tax forms filed by the foundation show. The Fund’s activity may violate federal tax law, according to an expert who reviewed the forms for OpenSecrets Blog.

From 2006 until 2013, Ronald Cameron, CEO of the poultry company Mountaire Corp., used The Jesus Fund to funnel at least $26.2 million to “various public charities” without disclosing exactly which organizations received the funds, contrary to legal requirements.

OpenSecrets Blog examined six years of tax forms submitted to the Internal Revenue Service.
Both Cameron and Mountaire gave to the entity, which had $43.5 million in assets by the end of 2013. In the six years, the Jesus Fund received $15.25 million from Mountaire and more than $10 million from Cameron himself, according to the documents. The Fund paid some fees and tax expenses, but the contributions to mystery organizations made up more than 92 percent of the Fund’s total disbursements.

Anonymous hacked into the KKK. Names

are coming.

Hacker group Anonymous is planning to reveal the identities of up to 1,000 Ku Klux Klan members, the latest twist in an ongoing cyber-war on the white supremacist group.

In Twitter messages and a YouTube video, the "hacktivist" collective said it had obtained the list of names from the Twitter account of a clan member.

"All will be revealed next month around the one year anniversary of #OpKKK," it tweeted, under the handle @Operation_KKK.

Anonymous took action against the Klan in November last year after members of the group threatened violence against peaceful protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.


Here is the link to a pdf file that you can download and

get people to sign or just sign it and send it back. The problem with that law preventing us from leasing solar panels is starting to be dealt with


I would LOVE if someone who has the equipment to create

a video montage of every single republican saying Obamacare, "will be a disaster" "failure" "like slavery" (that one from republican presidential candidate Ben Carson)

Show them talking about the "death panels" and all the outrageous things they said. It would be fabulous for the democrats!

And remind people how these nuts went so far as to shut down the government in trying to stop this monumental law.

The law that has now given over 16 million people health care insurance. Including ones with preexisting illness and children. With no lifetime max. And with a cost much less than previous insurance policies.

Also the governors who refused to expand medicare and the horrible donut hole they have left for the citizens of their state who still do not have insurance need to be outed in neon lights.

Where are the advertisers???

Tesla Technology about to be given to all NATIONS OF THE EARTH in 10 days!


I am not knowledgeable at all about these technologies nor the reliability of the article but if it is true it sounds like it could transform our world with energy. And I know that there are Tesla car chargers that are free to anyone who can use them

I'll let the science people on here explain it all.

Tesla Technology about to be given to all NATIONS OF THE EARTH in 10 days!

If you missed the historic live-stream, free-energy announcement given Friday by the Keshe Foundation, this video is the "Cliff Notes" version. World leaders were given a 10 day "heads-up" to what's coming... the global release & distribution of patented, plasma-based, free-energy knowledge and technology into the PUBLIC domain!!! Mr. Keshe has just warned spaceship earth of yet another imminent "world shattering" event!!

Study finds conservatives more likely to be psychpaths

Something we all kind of knew but now there is scientific proof

Conservatives more likely to be psychopaths, says Florida prof

by Michael Cook | 9 Mar 2012 |

A new study in the journal Neuroethics claims that socially conservative views are between 5 to 30 times more likely to be related to anti-social traits than socially liberal views.

Last year Marcus Arvan, of the University of Tampa, came under fire when he showcased his theory in another paper. Now he has returned with even more data which, he insists, shows that socially conservative views are statistically linked to three anti-social personality traits: Machiavellianism (deception), narcissism (overinflated sense of self-worth) and psychopathy (absence of guilt or remorse).

The earlier study linked views on the death penalty, gay marriage, free markets, the right to go to war against UN resolutions and detention of suspected terrorists without trial to “the Dark Triad”. His latest paper replicates his earlier findings and lists 22 more significant relationships, including:

preventing illegal immigration, deporting illegal immigrants, building a fence along the US-Mexican border, making English the official US language, not providing public schooling to the children of illegal immigrants, teaching “intelligent design” in public schools, “enhanced interrogation techniques” (including waterboarding), defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, obeying UN rules, climate change, environmentalism

Dr Arvan insists there is only a 1 in 100,000 chance that his findings are wrong.

Bad News for Conservatives? Moral Judgments and the Dark Triad Personality Traits: A Correlational Study



The Koch brothers are psychopaths

This declassified document which looks like it was printed originally in The New Yorker (?) tells a horrid story of the Kochs trying to hide all the benzene they feed into the atmosphere, how they got one senator to convince people that getting rid of ozone would cause more skin cancers and so many other things that they have done. The kind of things that make it hard for me to sleep at night.


"Koch has been constantly in trouble with the E.P.A., and
Mercatus has constantly hammered on the agency." An environmental lawyer who has clashed with the Mercatus Center called
it "a means of laundering economic aims." The lawyer explained the strategy: "You take corporate money and give it to a
neutral-sounding think tank," which "hires people with pedigrees and academic degrees who put out credible-seeming studies.
But they all coincide perfectly with the economic interests of their funders."
In 1997, for instance, the E.P.A. moved to reduce surface ozone, a form of pollution caused, in part, by emissions from oil
refineries. Susan Dudley, an economist who became a top official at the 'Mercatus Center, criticized the proposed rule. The
E.P.A., she argued, had not taken into account that smog-free skies would result in more cases of skin cancer. She projected that
if pollution were controlled it would cause up to eleven thousand additional cases of skin cancer each year.

In 1999, the District of Columbia Circuit Court took 'up Dudley's smog argument. Evaluating the E.P.A. rule, the court
found that the E.P.A. had "explicitly disregarded" the "possible health benefits of ozone." In another part of the opinion, the
court ruled, 2-1, that the E.P.A. had overstepped its authority in calibrating standards for ozone emissions. As the Constitutional
Accountability Center, a think tank, revealed, the judges in the majority had previously attended legal junkets, on a Montana
ranch, that were arranged by the Foundation for Research on Economics and the Environment—a grou


In 1958, Fred Koch became one of the original members of the john Birch Society, the arch-conservative group known, in
part, for a highly skeptical view of governance and for spreading fears of a Communist takeover. Members considered President
Dwight D. Eisenhower to be a Communist agent. In a self-published broadside, Koch claimed that the Communists have
infiltrated both the Democrat and Republican Parties." He wrote admiringly of Benito Mussolini's suppression of Communists
in Italy, and disparagingly of the American civil-rights movement. "The colored man looms large in the Communist plan to take
over America," he warned. Welfare was a secret plot to attract rural blacks to cities, where they would foment "a vicious race
war." In a 1963 speech that prefigures the Tea Party's talk of a secret 'socialist plot, Koch predicted that Communists would "infiltrate the highest offices of government in the U.S. until the President is a Communist, unknown to the rest of us."


In 1999, a jury found Koch Industries guilty of negligence and malice in the deaths of two Texas teen-agers in an explosion
that resulted from a leaky underground butane pipeline. (In 2001, the company paid an undisclosed settlement.) And in the final
months of the Clinton Presidency the Justice Department levelled a ninety-seven-count indictment against the company, for
covering up the discharge of ninety-one tons of benzene, a carcinogen, from its refinery in Corpus Christi, Texas. The company
was liable •for three hundred and fifty million dollars in fines, and four Koch employees faced up to thirty-five years in prison.
The Koch Petroleum Group eventually pleaded guilty to one criminal charge of covering up environmental violations, including
the falsification of documents, and paid a twenty-million-dollar fine. David Uhlmann, a career prosecutor who, at the time,
headed the environmental-crimes section at the Justice Department, described the suit as "one of the most significant cases ever
brought under the Clean Air Act." He added, "Environmental crimes are almost always motivated by economics and arrogance,
and in the Koch case there was a healthy dose of both."
During the 2000 election campaign, Koch Industries spent some nine hundred thousand dollars to support the candidacies
of George W. Bush and other Republicans. During the Bush years, Koch Industries and other fossil-fuel companies enjoyed
remarkable prosperity. The 2005 energy bill, which Hillary Clinton dubbed the Dick Cheney Lobbyist Energy Bill, offered
enormous subsidies and tax breaks for energy companies. The Kochs have cast themselves as deficit hawks, but, according to a
study by Media Matters, their companies have benefitted from nearly a hundred million dollars in government contracts since
In 2004, Citizens for a Sound Economy was accused of illegitimately throwing its weight behind Bush's reelectiion. The
group's Oregon branch had attempted to get Ralph Nader on the Presidential ballot, in order to dilute Democratic support for
John Kerry. Critics argued that it was illegal, for a tax-exempt nonprofit organization to donate its services for partisan political
purposes. (A complaint was filed with the Federal Election Commission; it was dismissed.)

I have not spoken about the primaries and I don't want to take sides

because I am a democrat and I will vote for whoever wins the primary. I do not want to say anything bad about who is in the primary because they may be our next presidential candidate.

That being said I am very grateful that Bernie Sanders has opened up the dialogue about the plight of the middle class, the terrible wealth inequality and a host of other things that up until now politicians have been kind of quiet about.

I also think that he is affecting Hillary and her perspective. Just looking at how people react to Bernie is a wake up call.

So I think this is a win win and I'm glad it is happening.
