Obama & Boehner’s Debt Ceiling Holiday Scam Ends March 15, 2017: Fraudulent Debt Ceiling Will Freeze In At $20 Trillion!



Former Reagan Administration White House Budget Director David Stockman says financial pain is a mathematical certainty.

Stockman explains, “I think we are likely to have more of a fiscal bloodbath rather than fiscal stimulus. Unfortunately for Donald Trump, not only did the public vote the establishment out, they left on his doorstep the inheritance of 30 years of debt build-up and a fiscal policy that’s been really reckless in the extreme.

People would like to think he’s the second coming of Ronald Reagan and we are going to have morning in America. Unfortunately, I don’t think it looks that promising because Trump is inheriting a mess that pales into insignificance what we had to deal with in January of 1981 when I joined the Reagan White House as Budget Director.”

So, can the Trump bump in the stock market keep going?


The bump was an orchestrated algorithm using the election cycle as a prop. This is the level where the insiders are slowly dumping their stock so as not to arouse suspicion and the uninformed gullibles are handing their money over to these banking cabal zionists before the March 15, 2017 holiday freeze~ Volubrjotr

Stockman, who wrote a book titled “Trumped” predicting a Trump victory in 2016, says,

  1. “I don’t think there is a snowball’s chance in the hot place that’s going to happen.
  2. This is delusional.
  3. This is the greatest suckers’ rally of all time.
  4. It is based on pure hopium and not any analysis at all as what it will take to push through a big tax cut.
  5. Donald Trump is in a trap.
  6. Today the debt is $20 trillion.
  7. It’s 106% of GDP. . . .
  8. Trump is inheriting a built-in deficit of $10 trillion over the next decade under current policies that are built in.
  9. Yet, he wants more defense spending, not less.
  10. He wants drastic sweeping tax cuts for corporations and individuals.
  11. He wants to spend more money on border security and law enforcement.
  12. He’s going to do more for the veterans.
  13. He wants this big trillion dollar infrastructure program.
  14. You put all that together and it’s madness.
  15. It doesn’t even begin to add up, and it won’t happen when you are struggling with the $10 trillion of debt that’s coming down the pike and the $20 trillion that’s already on the books.”
Reagan budget director has mastered the art of playing the iconoclastic truth-teller.

Reagan budget director has mastered the art of the iconoclastic truth-teller.

Then, Stockman drops this bomb and says,

“I think what people are missing is this date, March 15th 2017. That’s the day that this debt ceiling holiday that Obama and Boehner put together right before the last election in October of 2015.

That holiday expires. The debt ceiling will freeze in at $20 trillion. It will then be law. It will be a hard stop.

The Treasury will have roughly $200 billion in cash. We are burning cash at a $75 billion a month rate.

$200B/$75B => 2.6 months  puts us into the first week of June => $0B

By summer, they will be out of cash. Then we will be in the mother of all debt ceiling crises. Everything will grind to a halt.

I think we will have a government shutdown. There will not be an Obama Care repeal and replace. There will be no tax cut. There will be no infrastructure stimulus. There will be just one giant fiscal bloodbath over a debt ceiling that has to be increased and no one wants to vote for.”

Stockman also predicts very positive price moves for gold and silver as a result of the coming budget calamity.

FLASHBACK: Media Gushed Over Obama’s First Address to Congress

“He took us to the mountain tops.” 

“Big and bold.”    

“He wowed us!” 

No, these aren’t movie critic blurbs on a movie poster praising a star actor’s performance, these were the immediate reactions from the liberal media to President Barack Obama’s first address to Congress. Will Donald Trump’s speech tonight receive similar accolades? Given the press’s hostility to the new president, it seems unlikely.     

But back in 2009, the first takes on Obama’s speech were effusive. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews gushed “He wowed us!” CNN’s Jack Cafferty proclaimed “He’s got what it takes to lead this country back into the sunlight.”ABC’s George Stephanopoulos cheered that Obama “began on hope” and “ended on hope.”

Stephanopoulos’s colleague Terry Moran called the speech “big and bold” but never called it liberal, even though it was a wish list of leftist policies. On the other hand, Governor Bobby Jindal, who delivered the GOP response that night, was called a “Debbie Downer” by CBS’s Maggie Rodriguez.  

The following is just a sampling of the most enthusiastic responses to Obama’s first address to Congress from the MRC archives: 

<<< Please support MRC’s NewsBusters team with a tax-deductible contribution today. >>>


“He Wowed Us!” 



“It was his debut and he wowed us. That’s the running headline from last night’s presidential address to the Congress.”
— MSNBC’s Chris Matthews opening Hardball, February 25, 2009.


Applauding Obama’s “Start at Inspiring Hope”



“[President Obama] came right out of the box and said, ‘make no mistake about it, we are going to recover.’ That’s the most important thing he wanted the country to hear last night. He began on hope. He ended on hope. Now, in between, there’s an awful lot of hard things to be done….But I think he made a start at inspiring hope out in the country.”
— ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America, February 25, 2009.


Obama the “Excellent” Centrist



MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann: “What can the Republican response be?…How do you come out against recovering the nation’s sense of self and its optimism? How do you come out against words like ‘boldly,’ ‘wisely,’ ‘swiftly,’ and ‘aggressively?’”
Co-anchor Chris Matthews: “[Bobby Jindal]….is running for the outside rail of the Republican Party, the right-wing rail….That’s all the room that’s left on that side because Barack has grabbed the center with the charm he showed tonight in his excellent rhetoric.”
— MSNBC’s live coverage following Obama’s speech to Congress, February 24, 2009.


“Serene” Obama Will Lead Country “Back Into the Sunlight” 



“But our president seems remarkably unruffled by all of this, serene in an inner confidence that he’s got what it takes to lead this country back into the sunlight….It was quite a performance….It occurred to me watching the president last night, Wolf, that he was born to do exactly what he was doing. He had that place in the palm of his hand for the entire time he was in that room, and that can be a tough audience, a tough room to work.”
— Host Jack Cafferty on CNN’s The Situation Room, February 25, 2009.


Obama “Took Us Up to The Mountaintops”

“A rousing speech, took us up to the mountaintops.”
— Senior political analyst David Gergen on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, February 25, 2009.


“Big and Bold” Obama

“It was a big and bold speech by a new President facing deep challenges and huge expectations, delivered at a crucial moment when the country has been battered by talk of bailouts and the reality, the harsh reality of recession. And while President Barack Obama didn’t sugarcoat it —  he found bad guys on Wall Street and in Washington —  he did try to strike an optimistic tone and a hopeful note that with patience and personal responsibility and by working together, the country can prevail and thrive.”
— ABC’s Terry Moran on Nightline, February 24, 2009. Moran offered no “liberal” label of Obama’s agenda.    


We Have a President Again



“It made me feel pretty good. I mean, I thought it was a great speech….You know, a friend of mine said, ‘Oh my God, we have a President again!’ Now, in some ways, that’s not fair to Bush, but that’s the way you felt. You felt this was a guy who was totally in charge.”
— NPR’s Nina Totenberg discussing President Obama’s address to Congress, February 27, 2009 Inside Washington.    

Adoring “Ambitious” Obama’s Liberal Agenda

“This was the most ambitious President we’ve heard in this chamber in decades. The first half of the speech was FDR, fighting for the New Deal. The second half was Lyndon Johnson fighting for the Great Society, and we’ve never seen those two presidents rolled together in quite this way before….’ I think we’re watching one of the greatest political dramas of our time.”
— Senior political analyst David Gergen on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, February 24, 2009.


Obama’s  FDR-Like Fireside Chat

“This was actually a fireside chat. This is what I found so fascinating. From the very first sentence he basically said to the Congress ‘I’m not talking to you, I’m talking to the people who sent us here.’ And it reminded me, in some sense, of the radio speeches FDR gave where he talked about complicated issues in simple ways. Obama tried to explain how he got into this mess, why will my program make it better. Very intensely personal in the sense of talking to people at home watching one or two at a time in front of their TVs.”
— Correspondent Jeff Greenfield during CBS’s live coverage of Obama speech, February 24, 2009.


Public Loved Obama, Jindal Was “Debbie Downer”

“And Americans loved it. The polls show that they’re very optimistic, and then out comes Bobby Jindal, Debbie Downer, saying ‘hated it, it’s not going to work.’” 
— Co-host Maggie Rodriguez on CBS’s Early Show, February 25, 2009.

MRC’s Brent Bozell Mocks NYT’s Smug Oscar Attack on Trump

After the Bell
4:25pm ET

DAVID ASMAN: The battle between the media and President Trump is not disappearing, but 51 percent say the media is too critical of the President. This according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. February 18 to the 22 is when people were polled for that. Here to react now is Brent Bozell. He is Media Research Center founder. Great to see you. I’m just wondering if it is too early to say that President Trump has at least won this battle? He went, you know, the media is after him for a bunch of things. He went directly to the public. First is that press conference. Then in the public gathering in Florida. And it looks like he won from this poll. Am I right? 

BRENT BOZELL: Yeah. I mean, you get a sense, David, that the public understand unfair and hostile reporting when they see it. Look, you know, everybody is going to get some bad press at some point or another. Doesn’t matter what party you belong to. But the way the media have been treating Donald Trump is unlike any president in my lifetime. Not even with Ronald Reagan. They’ve despise this man and they are making every opportunity to — they are taking advantage of, whether it is justified or not, to take a shot at this guy and to try to bring him down. So that when he reacts, it resonates with the public. It’s really up to the media. Are they going to change their ways or not? And if they’re not, I think the Donald is going to continue keep beating them over the head. 

ASMAN: Yeah and you said when he reacts. And he does react more than any other president in my lifetime. And he reacts directly. Let me just play for you, first a sound bite from a New York Times advertisement that appeared in the Academy Awards and then get Donald Trump’s reaction to that and then get your reaction to it. Let’s play the sound bite first. 

[Clip of NYT Oscar ad.]

ASMAN: So there’s the New York Times, a direct attack on Donald Trump, say “trust us. Essentially don’t trust him. Trust us.” And here’s how Donald Trump reacted in a tweet. He said, “For the first time, the failing New York Times will take an ad, a bad one, to try and save its failing reputation. Try reporting accurately and fairly.” Who do you think wins in this battle? 

BOZELL: Donald Trump. Because the New York Times runs a left-wing—  look the American people don’t like their president attacked this way. The New York Times runs this kind of, really underhanded, snide attack on the President, during the Academy Awards no less. You know, talk about speaking to the choir when you’re doing something like that. And the public sees that. Donald Trump — So, no. What that does is justify Donald Trump. The next time he slaps the New York Times on the head, people are going to remember, this was the newspaper who took that shot at Donald Trump. 

ASMAN: The Trump administration did slap a group of the media in the head last week, when they tried to exclude a group of people. Of course the Obama administration tried to do the same with Fox News back about eight years ago. The regular media got together and helped Fox News against that attack. In this time, Fox News is joining together with the media that was excluded from a particular presser last week. Do you think that’s the end of it? Or is the Trump administration going to try to push the same way Obama did? 

BOZELL: Well, I think it is apples and oranges. I don’t think you should equate Fox News with CNN in this instance. Fox News was not hostile to Barack Obama. Fox News didn’t run story after story after story on their mobile devices, where I have counted up to eight anti-Trump stories in a row, Fox News didn’t do that. CNN has been openly hostile to Donald Trump. So I think that the President has every right to say, “If you’re coming here as a reporter, you should report. If you’re coming in here as the opposition party, you don’t need to come here.” I don’t have a problem with what he did. 

ASMAN: Brent Bozell. Great to see you, Brent. Thank you very much. Appreciate you coming in.

The Pouting and Shouting Left Is Just Being Itself

I’d almost forgotten how unreasonable the left can be when out of power, but liberals are giving us a daily refresher course, and it’s almost hard to take seriously — except we must.

They describe everything President Donald Trump does in hyperbolic terms. He’s a fascist. He’s destroying our liberties. He disrespects the rule of law. He represents a threat to humanity. He is going to start a world war. He is a danger to the freedom of the press. He needs to be impeached.

A few quick examples. America did fine for 240 years without a lawless federal mandate requiring all public school districts to allow transgender students to use bathrooms that match their gender identity rather than those that correspond with their actual gender. According to liberals, the world is coming to an end. Trump has dealt a devastating blow to this beleaguered group of people, and he’s an ogre. In fact, Trump lawfully reversed a lawless order, which will result in leaving the matter to the states to decide. Far from harming this minuscule group, he is protecting all other people from the concern that they or their children will have to share the same bathroom with those of the opposite gender.

Sunsara Taylor, an activist with Refuse Fascism, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News Channel program to rant maniacally about how Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are operating out of “Hitler’s playbook.” Trump, she said, “is more dangerous than Hitler ever could have been.” She called Trump and Pence a “danger to humanity” but offered no evidence they had done anything to justify her ridiculous charges. From what I could tell, Taylor’s main concern is that Trump is trying to advance a conservative agenda while in control of “the biggest nuclear arsenal in the world.” Conservatism plus nukes apparently equals a clear and present danger to mankind.

Before you dismiss this as a one-off exception to normally rational behavior, consider that Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota — who is vying to be chairman of the Democratic National Committee, no less — said he is open to calls to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump. “I think that Donald Trump has already done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment,” said Ellison. And Ellison is not an outlier. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., also called for Trump’s impeachment, describing Trump’s team as “a bunch of scumbags.”

Such lovely tolerant liberals took to social media to attack first lady Melania Trump, mocking her accent and religion — some calling her a whore, others a hostage — because she recited the Lord’s Prayer at a campaign rally.

The glaring irony with all this is that it is liberals who are hateful and intolerant, authoritarian and lawless. They are the ones who represent a threat to our liberties — not Trump, Republicans or conservatives.

It’s worth noting that almost every charge these breathless critics make against Trump is baseless and grounded on their irrational fears of what he might do rather than anything he’s done. It’s also remarkable that though these concerns are exaggerated when applied to Trump, many of them could have been accurately applied to President Barack Obama.

The dirty big non-secret is that the left isn’t concerned about the rule of law or any alleged threats to liberty. Liberals are pouting (and shouting) because for once in their lifetimes, they are not getting their way. For once, someone in a position of authority is refusing to roll over to political correctness. For once, a powerful public official is holding his hands up against this bullying liberal juggernaut and saying: “Stop. We’ve had enough. The people have had enough. You are not going to steamroll us anymore. We aren’t any longer going to look the other way when you ignore the law, when you use the courts and unaccountable administrative agencies to legislate your will, when you use holdover federal bureaucrats to thwart the will of the chief executive and when your biased media distort the facts and advocate a liberal agenda rather than objectively report the news. We are not going to cower at the demagogic cabal that says people aren’t paying their fair share of taxes. 

We aren’t going to be shamed as heartless or nativists for demanding secure borders and safe cities. We aren’t going to accept your belittling for identifying the enemy, by name, that is at war with us and with Western civilization. We aren’t going to accede to your narrative that radical Islamic terrorists are only at war with us because we provoke them, so we reject your mindless mantra that the prison at Guantanamo Bay is a recruiting tool for otherwise peaceful global citizens. We aren’t going to passively ignore your own selective assaults on religious liberty — on Christians. We aren’t going to continue to allow you to dominate the public dialogue. We’re finally fighting back — not as some tit-for-tat pettiness but because we believe that we are doing the right thing, that your virtual monopoly on the culture has been devastating and that it’s time to begin reversing the destruction you’ve wrought.

“But unlike you, we won’t break the law in undoing your agenda and advancing ours. To us, the ends don’t justify the means. We won’t — despite your projected concerns — diminish the freedom of the press or the constitutional liberties of any other individuals or groups. We are going to aggressively pursue policies that are in the best interests of America and the American people. Please keep calling us crazy and displaying your true colors to the American people, and with any luck, we’ll do even better in 2020, provided we persevere in standing up to your bullying and proceed with a pro-growth, pro-defense, pro-liberty agenda.”

Total Lack of Media Objectivity Surrounds DC’s Assisted Suicide Act 21-577

The media is at it again trying to make news instead of reporting it concerning DC’s Assisted Suicide bill. The media has played cozy with the pro-suicide crowd in framing the argument to their liking, namely that only religious people are opposed to assisted suicide and only because they want to impose their values. They also have taken what has been and should be a bipartisan issue and making it polarizing. The reasons that one should oppose suicide and assisting a suicide are universal in that they harm people of all ideologies equally.

KHW, Kaiser Health News wrote that it was a “Republican moral protest.”  While one member mentioned that, many others were opposed on the facts of how this law will harm the people in the community.  This slam was designed to belittle the opposition, by trying to disqualify them based on religion and to divide Republicans and Democrats so that they can expand suicide. 

The Blue Shield of California Foundation helps fund KHN coverage in California. A publication, who gets funding from a health insurance company, is subtly pushing assisted suicide. That should give us pause. Does this help their benefactor?  Would money be saved if sick people died early and cures did not need to be sought?

Reuters also joined the mocking, by saying “other Republican committee members opposed physician-assisted suicide (PAS) for “religious reasons” yet failed to name them. The mysterious unnamed religious bigots, who by the way are almost all Republicans, are not qualified to make a decision on public policy because they may have beliefs. 

The examples are endless, but I will stop with The Washington Times, who used a quote from D.C.’s mayor to make their point saying, that legislators were attempting to “impose their personal beliefs” on District residents. Their “personal beliefs” are code words for the dreaded religious beliefs and how they have no other reasons. It couldn’t be that some legislators are concerned that people will be coming to D.C. to commit suicide.  The bill states that you must be a “resident”. You can be a “resident” of many places, but you can be domiciled in only one. That means that anyone can check into a D.C. hotel and become a resident for the purposes of this act.

While the media went to great lengths to slam people who oppose PAS, they praise the pro death crowd and talk about all the “safeguards”, that are easy to circumvent, and yet their articles are devoid of serious arguments as to why a rational person would oppose assisted suicide. Reasons like elder abuse. Each year, millions of Americans are victims of elder abuse, many times at the hands of family, caregivers or “new best friends.”  

Assisted suicide gives one new deadly way to abuse. Once the prescription is written all oversight ends. Anyone can pick up the lethal dose and give it to the person. Even if they struggled, who would know?  There is no witness at the death.  The death certificate is falsified.  Even if someone suspects a crime the death certificate says they died of natural causes and there is no way to check, as the records are sealed. 

Similarly, disabled abuse is also concerning. While advocates of this kind of legislation claim it is not for people who have a disability, that is not really truthful. People who qualify for assisted suicide at that point in their lives have a disability. If you think about it this is a special carve out for the sick, elderly, and disabled.  Think of our disabled veterans. They already have a large suicide problem. Now we are validating this desire. They served our country and instead of helping them, we offer them a lethal dose.

The media failed to mention medical predictions are wrong five percent of the time. When assisted suicide is on the table, that mistake becomes deadly and where PAS is legal, care has been denied people and they have been offered lethal drugs. When suicide becomes the treatment for certain diseases, will they continue to look for a cure?  They have their cure, it is death.

Will marijuana-infused chewing gum become a recognized medical treatment?

Image: Will marijuana-infused chewing gum become a recognized medical treatment?

(Natural News)
The medicinal value of the cannabis plant is well-known and consistently under-valued by mainstream medicine. However, it seems that the medical industry is finally catching up and is beginning to accept that yes, a plant can indeed be medicine. Thousands of studies have demonstrated the plant’s clear medicinal value in a variety of conditions. Recognition of the plant’s benefits is continuing to garner steam, so much so that we may soon see it popping up for a number of uses. In fact, cannabis-laced chewing gum may even be on the market soon.

It was recently announced that Dutch researchers would be testing a United States-based company’s cannabis gum for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome, which is commonly referred to simply as “IBS.” The study will be one of the first to analyze the potential effects that CBD — a cannabinoid of the marijuana plant– may have on IBS.

IBS is a disorder that is primarily characterized by abdominal pain and other symptoms like diarrhea, constipation, or intermittent periods of both. Estimates suggest that between 25 and 45 million Americans alone are affected by IBS. Approximately two-thirds of IBS sufferers are female. The exact cause of IBS is not yet fully understood, but one thing is certain: it is a common condition that can be hard to treat. Not all treatments work for everyone, and many people never even seek out treatment.

Could this new marijuana gum be the ticket to helping millions of people? Maybe. This new product, called CanChew Plus, was formulated by AXIM Biotechnologies, Medical Marijuana Inc’s major investment company. This latest product was preceded by CanChew, which is already on the market as a “nutraceutical.” The new formulation features CBD, or cannabidiol, which is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid compound found in the marijuana plant.

Dr. Stuart Titus, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc., commented, “We are excited to see that AXIM has reached another milestone in its clinical development program.”

Stuart went on to say, “This is the first advancement in cannabinoid research for treatment of IBS in medical history and gives a clear example of how far ahead AXIM is in its clinical development programs.”

For the trial, a total of 40 patients will be given the gum, alongside another group of participants that will be given a placebo. All the study participants will be between the ages of 18 and 65, and all have been diagnosed with IBS according to ROME III criteria – which is the favored criterion for medical professionals. The gum will contain 50mg of CBD per serving for the trial.

Initial research has indicated that the gum can provide relief from some of the symptoms of IBS like painful abdominal cramps and bloating, as well as normalize stools. These relieving effects are likely due to the plant compound’s ability to interact with the endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the digestive tract — where they can reduce tension.

Previous research has indicated that the endocannabinoid system could play a role in the onset of IBS, and could also be a viable pathway for treatment of the condition. A 2008 study published in the journal Neurogastroenterology and Motility noted this possibility. The researchers also noted that turning on the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system helped to reduce hypersensitivity  and motility in the gut, and that drugs capable of altering the levels of cannabinoids in the system could also help to reduce inflammation. While the research team commented that it was “too early” to draw any conclusions, they commented that further research and clinical trials would be useful in “elucidating the potential benefit of cannabinoid drugs in IBS.”

Cannabis has a long history of being used to treat gastrointestinal distress. There is extensive anecdotal evidence of patients with IBS, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and other GI issues using cannabis to help treat their condition. Hopefully, the legal issues surrounding cannabis will soon be resolved so this valuable plant can be made more readily available to people with debilitating conditions, in whatever form they may choose.

UNHINGED: Left-wing bullies pressuring Breitbart’s e-commerce provider to take down their online store

Image: UNHINGED: Left-wing bullies pressuring Breitbart’s e-commerce provider to take down their online store

(Natural News)
If you’ve read my articles in the past, you know that most of the time I have a zero tolerance policy for liberalism. The reason for this is because liberals can be some of the vilest, most relentless people in this country. They mock us, they insult us, they threaten us, and therefore if I have a platform to fire back, I don’t often let that opportunity go to waste.

Most recently, liberals have been pressuring Tobi Lutke, CEO of the e-commerce company Shopify, to cut ties with Breitbart.com. Currently, Breitbart uses Shopify’s services to sell merchandise like t-shirts, hats and hoodies through their website. But despite the fact that Breitbart hasn’t done anything illegal or immoral, the leftists are still encouraging Shopify to drop the pro-Trump website like a hot potato.

Lutke shared a screenshot of his inbox to show how many emails he has been receiving from liberals urging him to cut ties with Breitbart.com. “Please stop doing business with these neo-Nazis,” one email said. Another person wrote, “If you are truly a supporter of immigrants and refugees, Shopify wouldn’t provide software to the online shop of Breitbart.” A third email really went for it, saying, “Dear Mr. Lutke. Your company supports the existence and functioning of Breitbart, a disgusting, racist, anti-woman, xenophobic, fear-mongering, hate-mongering organization.”

Most liberal democrats in charge of an operation as big as Shopify would drop Breitbart as a client after just two or three negative emails, let alone thousands. But I consider myself to be a fair man, and it’s important to give credit where credit is due. Even though he himself identifies as a “liberally minded immigrant,” CEO Tobi Lutke has publicly stated that Shopify will not be cutting ties with Breitbart.

In an article posted on Medium.com, Lutke explained how he was being pressured from liberals to stop providing services to Breitbart, and how he had absolutely no intentions to do so. “I have now received more than 10,000 emails, tweets and messages saying the same thing: stop hosting Breitbart’s online store,” the CEO wrote, adding that “Shopify employees are facing similar pressure.”

“Shopify is an unlikely defender of Breitbart’s right to sell products,” Lutke stated. “I’m a liberally minded immigrant, leading a predominantly liberal workforce, hailing from predominantly liberal cities and countries. I’m against exclusion of any kind – whether that’s restricting people from Muslim-majority nations from entering the U.S., or kicking merchants off our platform if they’re operating within the law.”

What’s so refreshing about this is that for once, someone who describes himself as a liberal is demonstrating that they’re not a hypocritical nut job. The reality is that most leftists out on the streets chanting “love trumps hate” are full of hate themselves. Most school administrators who claim they’re all about tolerance and acceptance are actually intolerant and unaccepting of conservatism. College democrats who advocate for free speech when a liberal professor indoctrinates their students are the same college democrats that will look for ways to silence their republican counterparts. (RELATED: You won’t believe what universities are encouraging students to do to combat offense speech).

The fact of the matter is if even half of the liberals in this country had the same mentality as Tobi Lutke, not only would modern day politics be more civil, but we also might actually start to get things done again through rational debates and conversations. Shutting down the opposition, as thousands of leftists are urging Mr. Lutke to do, is not the solution to our problems; that is the problem. If we can’t even allow people with opposing political views to run an online store for shirts and hats, then who are we? What exactly have we become?

Nobel Prizes were awarded to Nazi scientists who developed Zyklon B to exterminate Jews

Image: Nobel Prizes were awarded to Nazi scientists who developed Zyklon B to exterminate Jews

(Natural News)
When the late Swedish chemist and engineer Alfred B. Nobel (1833-1896) made the decision to set aside a $9 million cash sum upon his death to establish the Nobel Prize, his vision was to honor the great men and women throughout time whose accomplishments in peace, literature, physics, chemistry, physiology, medicine, and economic science conferred the greatest benefits to mankind. Little did he know, however, that many questionable individuals would end up becoming recipients of this much-coveted award, including Nazi scientists whose work led to the development of the chemicals purportedly used in death camp gas chambers to murder prisoners.

One of these questionable individuals is Fritz Haber, a Jewish man who the history books say helped develop synthetic crop fertilizers that were later modified to become deadly chemical weapons (modern-day pesticides and herbicides). BBC News outlines Haber’s role in the development of these chemicals as having been good-intentioned. Working for chemical giant BASF, Haber partnered with Carl Bosch of the appliance company by the same name, to synthesize fertilizing ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen for use on food crops, making them easier to grow — and generating more food for hungry people.

At the time, Haber’s accomplishment in developing this new fertilizer appeared entirely beneficial, having been dubbed by at least one observer to be “the most important technological invention of the 20th century.” And yet, as World War I began to break out, it was quickly realized that these same chemicals could also be used to develop chemical weapons, including the infamous IG Farben Zyklon B chemical that the Nazi regime used to gas Jews and other prisoners in concentration camps.

Even if he was just an ordinary, well-intentioned man who, like any other good Germans of the time, simply wanted to demonstrate his patriotism, Haber would quickly go on to become a key asset in the Nazi war effort. BBC News credits him as being the first to experiment with chlorine gas, which earned him a position of captain in the German army. During this time, and before his untimely death, he also developed pesticide gases that would later be transformed into Zyklon B.

“Haber’s life was the tragedy of the German Jew — the tragedy of unrequited love,” wrote Haber’s friend and much-better-known colleague as far as history is concerned, Albert Einstein, about Haber’s experience during the Nazi Party’s rise to power. Haber, if you don’t know the full story, was eventually forced into exile as anti-Jewish sentiment escalated prior to World War II.

Henry Kissinger, Al Gore, and Barack Obama: the Nobel Prize gone wrong

To Haber’s credit, his sordid legacy is somewhat a mixed bag. While he didn’t intentionally and necessarily betray his fellow Jewish countrymen with his accomplishments in fertilizer and pesticide technology, his work in these areas was still used by others to murder untold millions of Jews and other political prisoners during the Nazi era. And there are many others with similar legacies, not to mention those who are known war criminals, who have been recipients of the Nobel Prize over the years.

One notable example is Henry Kissinger, who was accused of committing war crimes for his involvement in the secret bombings of Cambodia between 1969 and 1975. Just two years after receiving the Nobel Prize, North Vietnam invaded South Vietnam, sparking the horrific violence of a war that never should have happened in the first place; the Vietnam War. Needless to say, Kissinger’s Nobel Prize win was highly controversial, and two Norwegian Nobel Committee members actually resigned because of it.

Al Gore is another questionable winner of the Nobel Prize, whose “accomplishments” in climate science research were overshadowed by his own hypocritical lifestyle. While preaching against the sin of atmospheric carbon dioxide and the need for humans to start living more modestly to offset rising global temperatures, Gore was exposed for using more than 20 times the national average of electricity at his Tennessee mansion, which has 20 rooms and a separate “pool house” — this is in addition to the fudged climate numbers that Gore used to support the failed notion of man-made global warming.

And who could forget war criminal Barack Obama’s ridiculous win of the Nobel Peace Prize just 12 days after he took office in 2009. Obama hadn’t accomplished anything at that point other than laying the groundwork for continuing the Middle Eastern wars started by the previous Bush administration. Not only did Obama continue with these failed policies, but he actually escalated them. Journalist Kirsten Powers referred to Obama’s later aggression against Syria as a “determination to attack,” as well as his ongoing support of the war in Afghanistan, which she described as “pointless and failing.” Needless to say, there was absolutely no justifiable reason why Obama should have been honored for supporting peace, when in reality he was just another war hawk president.

Why is the FDA under a gag order to hide details about a massive cheese recall?

(Natural News)
Sargento’s recall on a number of their cheese products for possible Listeria contamination has been making major headlines. But what you may not have heard is that an additional 130 kinds of cheese and products containing cheese are also under recall — for containing the same Listeria-contaminated cheese produced by Deutsch Kase Haus LLC.

A number of different brands are involved: besides Sargento, some other brands affected are Sara Lee, Saputo, Dutch Valley, and Guggisberg. A variety of store-brand products by Meijer, H-E-B, Albertsons and other major retailers are also affected by the recall.

Some of the affected brands have been quite forthcoming about what products of theirs have likely been affected and what they are recalling. These companies should no doubt be applauded for their transparency.

The mass recall of over 100 different types of cheese began in early February after a random test of Amish Classics cheeses that Tennessee inspectors had collected from a retailer tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. The cheese was manufactured by Deutsch Kase Haus LLC, as are many other cheese varieties. This prompted Tennessee officials to issue a consumer alert.

The United States Food And Drug Administration is reportedly investigating the situation in a number of states, along with local officials. However, a clause in federal code prevents the FDA from telling the public what companies purchased cheese from Deutsch Kase Haus; such details are apparently considered “confidential corporate information.”

In other words, unless all of the affected brands come forward — or Deutsch Kase Haus publicizes a list of all the companies to which they supplied cheese — there is no real way for the public to know what cheeses and products were affected by the Listeria contamination, in total. Worse still, because of this “clause,” which many are likening to a gag order, there is no de facto list of all the recalled products to turn to for answers. With at least 130 products affected by the recall, you can imagine how difficult it would be for anyone other than the manufacturer to compile that information.

The idea that the FDA is bound by corporate interests is really nothing new, but this latest development just goes to show how far the federal agency will go to protect corporations before people.  It is truly ironic that the government agency cannot tell the public what companies have purchased contaminated cheese, given that the organization describes itself as a protector of public health. The FDA’s very own website declares that they are fundamentally responsible for “[p]rotecting the public health by assuring that foods (except for meat from livestock, poultry and some egg products which are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture) are safe, wholesome, sanitary and properly labeled;…”

What good does it do to tell the public, “Some types of cheese have been contaminated with a disease-causing pathogen, but we can’t tell you what brands of cheese are affected because it goes against corporate interests.” Their promise of investigation means little when there are steps they could be taking right now to prevent infection simply by telling the public what foods may not be safe.

While Listeria is a serious food-borne illness, one has to wonder: if the food were contaminated with something more recognizable as a threat, would the agency still be singing the same tune? How would they continue to justify their inaction and indifference then?

As an agency, the FDA has been scrutinized for their failure to protect the people of the country it allegedly exists to serve for many years. Recently, in 2015, it came to light that there was a major legal loophole that actually allowed food companies to put new additives in food without government review. How? As long as the industry itself declares the ingredient safe, there is no need for FDA approval — via a decades-old law that allows food manufacturers to skip over the federal regulation process. There are thousands of potentially toxic ingredients that are added to food with little to no supervision from the FDA.

Who are they really serving? It surely isn’t the public.
