Tesla CEO and PayPal billionaire Elon Musk surprised many Friday when he declared on Twitter that he is a socialist. Conservative critics, however, may well have agreed, given his companies’ reliance on the state… Read the rest of this entry »

Kathy Griffin Attacks Melania Trump: ‘Feckless Complicit Piece of Sh*t’

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 18, 2018

SPOKESPERSON OF THE STARS!

You can always tell when one is incapable of intelligent argument. Visualize Griffin and De Niro on a debating team.

So why am I even bringing up what Kathy Griffin “thinks”? I don’t know either.  Sorry for wasting your time.

…Kathy Griffin was silent when the Obama administration enforced the same policy at the U.S.-Mexico border, where Breitbart Texas exclusively reported on the conditions in which unaccompanied minors were being packed into crowded cells and holding facilities. Read the rest of this entry »

Fewer than one in 20 street robberies and burglaries are being solved by police, new figures reveal

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 18, 2018

The priority is not offending instead of arresting.

ban on online knife sales Online… What about the kitchen drawer? Don’t be surprised when kitchen utensils are registered. I can remember when a US legislator suggested seat belts on motorcycles. Don’t expect much that actually helps.

When the SJWs have everyone reduced to eating with chop sticks someone will be attacked and have their eyes poked out, what then?

A politically weaponized FBI is nothing new, but plenty dangerous | TheHill

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 18, 2018

But the Founding Fathers never intended a secret police force to be an independent fourth branch of the federal government. As James Madison warned in 1788, “Wherever the real power in a Government lies, there is the danger of oppression.”

http://thehill.com/opinion/civil-rights/392084-a-politically-weaponized-fbi-is-nothing-new-but-plenty-dangerous

BY JAMES BOVARD

…In reality, the FBI has been politically weaponized for almost a century. The FBI was in the forefront of the notorious Red Scare raids of 1919 and 1920. Attorney General Mitchell Palmer reportedly hoped that arresting nearly 10,000 suspected radicals and immigrants would propel his presidential campaign. Federal Judge Anderson condemned Palmer’s crackdown for creating a “spy system” that “destroys trust and confidence and propagates hate.” He said, “A mob is a mob whether made up of government officials acting under instructions from the Department of Justice, or of criminals, loafers, and the vicious classes.”

Second FBI Informant Tried To Entrap Trump Campaign With $2 Million Offer For Hillary Dirt: Roger Stone | Zero Hedge

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 18, 2018

“If you believe that [Greenberg] took time off from his long career as an FBI informant to reach out to us in his spare time, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I want to sell you,” Caputo said in an interview.

by Tyler Durden

Trump campaign aides Roger Stone and Michael Caputo say that a meeting Stone took in late May, 2016 with a Russian appears to have been an “FBI sting operation” in hindsight, following bombshell reports in May that the DOJ/FBI used a longtime FBI/CIA asset, Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, to perform espionage on the Trump campaign.  Read the rest of this entry »

It’s Time for America to Cut Loose Our Useless So-Called ‘Allies’

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 18, 2018

…even as his myriad foes prepare their next political, legal, and punditical attacks, Trump is the man astride the world stage, smiling, shaking hands, signing deals – and unmistakably remaking the old order…

https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/06/16/its-time-for-america-cut-loose-our-useless-so-called-allies.html

JAMES GEORGE JATRAS

For the moment, let’s put aside Trump’s alleged sympathy for authoritarianism and focus on the accusation that Trump is “insulting, degrading, and destroying our allies and alliances,” a view held across the Establishment spectrum, from neoconservatives like Max Boot to far-Left Democratic California Congresswoman Maxine Waters (famed for her concern about Russian aggression in nonexistent Limpopo). How dare Trump threaten such valuable relationships!

Except these so-called ‘allies and alliances’ aren’t valuable to the United States. They’re a positive danger and a detriment.

Let’s get one thing straight: the United States has no real allies. There are countries we dominate and control, more properly termed client states or even satellites. (True, given Israel’s and Saudi Arabia’s lock-stock-and-barrel ownership of the American political class, it seems rather that we are their clients, not the other way around…) Conversely, on an almost one-to-one correspondence, countries that are not satellites are our enemies, either currently (Russia, North Korea, Iran, Syria) or prospectively (China).

But do we have any actual allies – that is, countries that provide mutual security for the United States, and whose contributions actually make us Americans safer and more secure in our own country?

Try to name one. Read the rest of this entry »

Why We Should Be Alarmed That Israeli Forces and US Police Are Training Together – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 17, 2018

Take 15-year-old Mohammed Tamimi. He was shot during a protest and had to have part of his skull removed. He was then taken by Israeli forces in the middle of the night, and beaten into confessing that they didn’t shoot him in the face, despite medical records and eyewitness accounts proving otherwise.

You can’t tell the military from the police without a program. they both shoot first and ask later.

It will make the transition to martial law that much easier.

Razan al-Najjar is the latest victim in Israel’s onslaught of Palestinians to go viral. The 21-year-old nurse was shot dead by a sniper. Her only weapon? A wad of medical gauze. She’d been treating protesters who’ve been rallying for their right to return to homes they were expelled from as refugees.

Unfortunately, the death of another unarmed civilian is hardly even news to Palestinians.

May 14, the day the United States moved its embassy to Jerusalem in symbolic support of recognizing the city as Israel’s capital, was also the bloodiest day in this recent wave of demonstrations. In just one day, at least 50 Palestinians were killed and 2,400 more injured by the Israeli military. (Other counts put those figures even higher.)

This isn’t an anomaly. In this latest wave of demonstrations, Israeli forces have killed dozens of unarmed protesters and wounded thousands more. And they’re not apologizing. Read the rest of this entry »

Elon Needs More Money (Again) – EPautos – Libertarian Car Talk

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 17, 2018

This is the same Elon Musk that has the rocket company doing what NASA can’t. I don’t know where he gets his rocket company money. Probably a lot comes from you and me. I think we need a (sort of) private rocket company that actually makes something we need.

Musk should knock the electric car on the head go full tilt into the rocket bizz. Maybe then we have a chance on catching up with the Ruskies.

by Eric

Last month, I wrote about Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s contemptuous and breezy dismissal of questions asked by financial analysts about the cashflow situation at Tesla. Would the company need yet another infusion of money to remain afloat? Lame! Next question.

That was Musk’s response.

As it turns out, it’s Tesla that’s lame.  The company – Musk – just laid off several thousand employees, about 9 percent of its workforce – which is one way to raise cash (by not spending it on worker salaries) when you don’t want to admit you need another infusion from investors – or realize you might not be able to get one because those investors are becoming gun-shy about giving money to Elon.

Trump Confounds the Pundits

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 17, 2018

I wish someone would just get the oil and gas pipelines built from Qatar through Iraq, Syria and Turkey. That is what this perpetual warmongering is about.

But then someone always finds a reason for war, like money, power and doing other county’s (the ones neocons bow down to) dirty work.

Did I mention money and power?

What will come out of this week’s summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un of North Korea remains to be seen, and one must hope for the best, but the bullets are already beginning to fly in the US media with The New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof declaring impulsively somewhat implausibly that Trump gave away the store by canceling military training exercises with South Korea and in legitimizing Jong-un’s rule by meeting with him without getting anything substantive in return.

Lost in the flood of news coming out of Singapore are Trump’s positive comments delivered at the earlier G-7 meeting in Canada, which may have opened the door to a possible meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and a return of Moscow to a reconfigured G-8. One hopes that China will soon also make it into the ultimate insiders’ club, which will have to be renamed G-9.

Washington’s most important relationship is with Moscow Read the rest of this entry »

FBI Employee: ‘Trump’s Supporters Are All Poor, Uneducated, Lazy POS’

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 17, 2018

Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS…

Does the half the country the FIB employee is talking about include you?
