Here’s what I can’t figure out about the showdown in DC – how can anyone, let alone the feds, ask the consumer to sign up for these Obamacare exchanges without knowing what the costs are up front? Are the Dem’s actually expecting the People to just sign up and get the sticker shock later? Not even their base is that stupid. So, what’s with the “my way or the highway” juvenile position from the Senate?
CNN Special with Sanjay Gupta reporting on medicinal marijuana, it’s benefits on disease and ailments related to the central nervous system and how the government has a patent on the plant due to its profound healing properties yet it still classifies it as a schedule one drug which means the USG classifies it as more potent and dangerous than heroin, cocaine and even alcohol.

Update: It is being reported by Mark Hemingway of the Weekly Standard that CBS News appears to be “silencing” investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson. Read the story below the video.
The first three minutes provides an update on documents recently released showing AG Eric Holder knew about Fast & Furious as early as July 2010, yet he told Congress in May 2011 he’d only “learned about it over the last few weeks”. Why does it feel like we’ve all been here before? Uh, that’s right, it’s because we have…countless times. Following the three minute update, Ms. Attkisson details her investigation and when she learned about this obvious contradiction in Holder’s testimony, she phoned the public affairs dept at the DOJ to get a statement for the record about this “oh, I misunderstood the question” and got yelled at. She then attempted to get a statement from the WH and got screamed at. Sounds a bit like Romper Room to me…
Is CBS News Silencing Fast and Furious Reporter?
by Mark Hemingway
“Yesterday, CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson told radio show host Laura Ingraham that the White House yelled and swore at her over her reporting on the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal tied to the deaths of two U.S. law enforcement agents. Attkisson also revealed that she’d also been yelled at by the Justice Department.”
“Today, I called CBS News in an attempt to interview Attkisson. I was told by CBS News senior vice president of communications Sonya McNair that Attkisson would be unavailable for interviews all week. When I asked why Attkisson would be unavailable, McNair would not say.”
“I’ve also heard from a producer at another media outlet that has previously booked Attkisson that they tried to book her since she made news with the Laura Ingraham interview yesterday. They were also told that she would be unavailable.”

Somebody has some splainin’ to do, why it is the same guy who dismissed the Black Panther Voter Intimidation case in 2009, Eric Holder, the big guy at the DOJ – Here’s the letter from Congressmen Issa and Grassley to Holder at DOJ regarding Director Melson’s ‘Independence Day’ testimony – ‘ATF Director, Melson, Provides Testimony w/Personal Counsel to Congressman Issa on the 4th of July‘
What on earth is going on in Joplin, MO?
Why would local law enforcement create such a huge perimeter around a makeshift morgue purposely designed to handle the growing number of victims resulting from the freak tornado’s that hit the area? Why would local law enforcement have a checkpoint on the road leading to the morgue and more importantly, why would these officials demand CNN’s camera be turned off and placed into the back seat of the car? Wierd?
After watching the “Starsuckers” documentary, there is only one word that sums it up – “CHUTZPAH”. We’re all being played for fools by the magicians behind the screen and it’s shameful what these clowns are getting away with. Understand, you/we are the one allowing it and you/we are the one that feeds this insatiable monsters unquenching appetite. Take an hour and a half of your time and watch this documentary about how you are being suckered into a world full of illusion. What, you don’t have the time? Make the time. You’ll be doing yourself, your family, hell the entire world a big favor by educating yourself as to how the media plays you and the rest of us schmucks like a fiddle.
Why on earth is the establishment media trying to keep Trump, hell, a growing majority of American’s, from resolving the simplest and most basic of questions ever asked of anyone? What is going on here?
The simple question – IS the President eligible, NOT likable, BUT eligible to serve as the Commander in Chief as established by OUR United States Constitution?
It appears these “supposed” journalists are doing all they can to keep Trump from exploring this issue. It seems as though they are doing their best to steer him away from the entire topic. Why? Have you ever seen any journalist EVER behave in this manner? Have you? I sure haven’t.
These peeps want you to believe they vetted Obama. They want you to believe them no matter what. Well, your choice but answer these questions for me before you arrive at a decision. [Read more…]
First Susan Lindauer, former U.S. Intelligence Asset, who covered Iraq, Libya, Yemen and Syria/Hezbollah for a decade spelled out the real reasons the empire wants Qaddafi out –
Then Michael Scheuer, former head of CIA Bin Laden Unit, brought it home on CNN Sunday night ending his 10 minute interview with ‘You’re Just Carrying the Water for Mr. Obama’ to the anchor. Ouch! What’s that old saying about the truth hurts!

Now we learn American taxpayer’s are spending $4 Million a day on the Air Force in Libya – this doesn’t include the Tomahawk Missiles we’ve already launched to protect the people of Libya at a cost of roughly $569,000 per missile.
WASHINGTON – The Air Force secretary says the service has been spending about $4 million a day to keep 50 fighter jets and nearly 40 support aircraft in the Libya conflict, including the cost of munitions.

Wedeman: Tunisia’s military putting a boot on “Jasmine Revolution and as Wayne Madsen always does, he adds editorial comment to his posts. Here is what he had to say about this “Jasmine Revolution” – “Now we see the actual purpose of Julian Assange, his “leaks,” and George Soros. Another themed revolution brought about by leaked cables about Tunisian regime from US embassy in Tunis. Once again, Assange is outed as a tool of Soros and the CIA and Mossad — the Unholy Trinity. But Assange and his master Soros will not touch Israel at all — the one country in the Middle East in need of a revolution (and a bath and a shave).”
Wildlife officials say the cause of death was due to a sudden drop in temperature. Bullshit! This is not an isolated incident when you take in one takes in the totality of the massive bird/fish deaths all occuring during the same time across the globe.
(CNN) — The thousands of birds that fell from the sky just before midnight New Year’s Eve in Arkansas likely died from massive trauma, according to a preliminary report released Monday.
The birds, most of which were dead when they were found, were red-winged blackbirds and starlings. They were found within a one-mile area of Beebe, about 40 miles northeast of Little Rock, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said.
Keith Stephens, a spokesman for the commission, said the birds showed evidence of trauma in the breast tissue, with blood clots in the body cavity and a lot of internal bleeding. All major organs were normal.
He cited a preliminary report conducted by the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission.

Fareed Zakaria: ADL’s Mosque Opposition Is
Everyone knows there is this BIG A$$ ELEPHANT sitting in the middle of every single living room across America today, so why is it the media continues to arrogantly ignore and pretend the ELEPHANT doesn’t exist? And, since when does the national media select and promote who is going to lead America?
Many knew then, as many more now know, the winner of the Presidential contest had no business running for the office of President in the first place, let alone winning. And now we learn that the ‘lie-beral’ media establishment deliberately withheld facts, quashed stories and sugar coated the truth through the intentional use of propaganda.
It would have been a great public service had ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, the Nation and more of the ‘lie-beral’ media outlets informed the public that there was going to be a blackout on the truth during the 2008 primary and general. [Read more…]
