Election score: incumbents 291, challengers 2.

American Oligarchy
  • You are a pawn in a rigged game of chess.  American "elections" are a sham.  Totally phony. 
  • The corrupt system is run by Billionaire Cartels out of Washington and works to automatically re-elect incumbents by flooding districts with mountains of outside cash.  The people have no real voice in their own government.
  • Every other democratic nation on earth has a multi-party legislature.  But in the U.S. the same two parties "magically" win 100% of all Congressional elections.

Congress is wildly unpopular.

In fact, two-thirds of Americans want their own House member booted. And the tea party is dogging longtime Republican lawmakers.
So incumbents are sweating out this year's election, right?
Nope. Mostly they're not.
James Madison created a Republic of
small Congressional seats where anyone
could run for & win office.  Today seats are
gigantic in size and are openly purchased by
a corrupt centralized money machine
operating out of Washington D.C.
People talk about throwing the bums out, but voters keep sending the same bunch back in.
More than halfway through the party primaries, 293 House and Senate members have completed their quests for re-nomination.
The score: Incumbents 291, challengers 2 reports the Associated Press

Granted, one of those two losses was a shocker. A virtual unknown, Dave Brat, toppled House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia in a Republican primary.
Two longtime lawmakers - Republican Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi and Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel of New York - barely clung to nominations to their seats Tuesday.
But those rare exciting races that draw national attention are misleading. Most of the House candidates, about 60 percent so far, didn't have a soul running against them. Only a few faced a challenger who posed a real threat. No senator has been defeated yet.
Over the past five decades, voters have routinely returned 9 of 10 incumbent candidates to the House. Senate races are a bit less predictable, but usually more than 80 percent of incumbents win.
This year, Congress logged a confidence rating of 7 percent, the lowest Gallup has measured for any institution, ever. People don't put much attachment to their own representative anymore, either. An Associated Press-GfK poll last month found that 65 percent of Americans say their own House member should lose.
So why do these people keep winning?
It's harder for challengers to sell themselves to voters. Incumbents wield tremendous advantages. They raise big bucks from special interests, use their congressional offices to send voters mass mailings, build ties to businesses and advocacy groups in their districts, and benefit from name recognition. They have staff members back home working to keep constituents happy.

Iran says ISIS offensive a US plot - And it is true

Shakir Wahiyib is a feared enforcer for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham who
does not cover up his face in videos of his killings

Where does ISIS get its weapons?
  • Iran has a point.  The government lap-dog Media (and "Conservative" media) does not ask this simple question. 
  • If Iran and Russia are backing Syria and Iraq then who is giving expensive weapons to ISIS?  By a process of elimination that mean ISIS is backed by the CIA and/or our allies like Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States.

(The Times of Israel)  -  The US and its allies are behind the rising threat of Islamist militants in the Middle East, an Iranian general charged Saturday, declaring that Iran would react aggressively to any threats to its borders.
The comments by Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brig. Gen. Masoud Jazayeri came less than two weeks after the US and Iran discussed the possibility of joining forces to thwart the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

“The presence of militants in Iraq should be considered as a full-fledged plot devised by world powers and their lackeys, with the US leading these powers,” Jazayeri said in an interview with state-owned Arabic radio station Al-Alam, according to the official Iranian PressTV.
Iraq has been combating an offensive by ISIL that has overrun swaths of five provinces, killed nearly 1,100 people, displaced hundreds of thousands and threatens to tear the country apart.
Both Iran and US, as well as other regional players, see the group, which broke off from al-Qaeda for being too extreme, as a threat.
US President Barack Obama has so far refrained from carrying out airstrikes on the insurgents.
Iran has already sent troops into Iraq, and Jazayeri insisted that Iran was ready to provide assistance to its war-torn neighbor. Tehran has been a staunch backer of al-Maliki’s Shiite led government.

Isis killings & fear spread in Iraq

The ISIS Executioner
In an army full of masked, black-clad figures, he is the one man who is never shy to show his face. But for those unlucky enough to cross him, the face of Shakir Wahiyib, a feared enforcer for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, is often the last they will ever see.
The star of a series of grisly jihadist videos, including one in which three men are executed after failing his "Quranic quiz", Wahiyib is one of the few publicly-identified leaders of the shadowy jihadist group that has swept through northern Iraq.
The movement, otherwise known as ISIS, generally instructs its followers to keep their faces masked to minimise the chances of them being tracked down by the Iraqi government. But while its commander-in-chief, Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi, is even said to disguise himself while meeting fellow commanders, Wahiyib has no such reservations. Showing considerable relish for his work, he grins for the lenses of jihadi cameramen he goes on the rampage with his masked underlings.

Officials back terrorists to overthrow Iran - Proof that idiots rule the world

Even these two think this group is made up of idiots.

Retard Alert!
Let's face it - our so-called "best and brightest"
are a bunch of fucking morons.

An array of high-level former U.S. officials, both Democrats and Republicans, were in France over the weekend calling for regime change in Iran and throwing their collective weight behind an Iranian dissident group once designated as a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union.

“You’ve got an assortment of former generals and senior politicians from all over the world here,” Howard Dean said as he headed to the annual rally held by the National Council of Resistance of Iran. The group is an umbrella organization of Iranian opposition groups, the largest of which is the Mujahedin-e Khalq, which was removed from EU and U.S. terrorist lists in 2009 and 2012 respectively reports the Washington Times.

The event was scheduled to include former GOP U.N. Ambassadors John R. Bolton and Democrat Bill Richardson, former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Democrat Rep. Patrick Kennedy, former Sen. Joe Lieberman and others.

“I think the thing that brings us together is human rights,”  Dean, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, told The Washington Times when asked how such a diverse collection of U.S. dignitaries agreed to speak at the rally.

Bolton went further, telling The Times that the event, which drew more than 30,000 Iranian dissidents to Villepinte, France, was about raising “the larger issue of the illegitimacy of Iran’s mullahs and their regime in Tehran.”

Creeping Sharia - Brits suspend Christian woman for giving Muslim book on Christianity

Victoria Wasteney

Only Muslims Have Rights
Christian is suspended from her job for nine months.

A Christian health worker has begun a legal challenge after being disciplined by the British NHS for praying with a Muslim colleague.

Victoria Wasteney, a senior occupational therapist in one of the country’s most racially diverse areas, was also accused of bullying the colleague after giving her a book about a Muslim woman who converts to Christianity.

In addition, senior managers told Miss Wasteney that it was inappropriate to invite the woman to a community sports day organized by her church reports the UK Telegraph.

The complaints led to Miss Wasteney being suspended on full pay for nine months.

Three charges were upheld against the 37-year-old Christian at an internal disciplinary hearing in February and five charges were found to be unsubstantiated. She had to accept a final written warning at work which will remain on her records for 12 months, as well as accept a range of other requirements designed to stop her discussing her faith and beliefs with colleagues.

Miss Wasteney said she was challenging her employers in court because political correctness in the NHS was stifling ordinary conversations about faith.

“I believe in tolerance for everyone and that is why I am challenging what has happened to me,” she added.

Andrea Williams, the chief executive of the Christian Legal Centre, said the case demonstrated that “the NHS is increasingly dominated by a suffocating liberal agenda that chooses to bend over backwards to accommodate certain beliefs but punishes the Christian”.

A spokesman for East London NHS Foundation Trust said it did not comment on individual cases.

Eisenhower solved a massive surge of illegal aliens

Back When Patriots Ruled the Nation

---- President Dwight Eisenhower fought the corruption between the Border Patrol, politicians and business by deporting over one million illegals.

(Blazing Cat Fur News Service)  -  Ike always kept the events in the back of his mind and in 1951 he happened to chance upon Sen. William Fulbright's proposal that a Congressional committee be created to examine "unethical conduct by government officials who accepted gifts and favors in exchange for special treatment of private individuals". You see, back then it was not uncommon for Democratic senators to do things that were solely for the good of America that had limited or no partisan purpose.

Eisenhower wrote the Senator a letter in which he quoted a report in The New York Times, highlighting one specific paragraph that said: "The rise in illegal border-crossing by Mexican 'wetbacks' to a current rate of more than 1,000,000 cases a year has been accompanied by a curious relaxation in ethical standards extending all the way from the farmer-exploiters of this contraband labor to the highest levels of the Federal Government."

Years later, Eisenhower's first attorney general, Herbert Brownell Jr., said in an interview with "that the president had a sense of urgency about illegal immigration when he took office."

All of the following is quoted directly from John Dillon's piece that he wrote for the Christian Science Monitor back in 2006.

America "was faced with a breakdown in law enforcement on a very large scale," Mr. Brownell said. "When I say large scale, I mean hundreds of thousands were coming in from Mexico [every year] without restraint."

 Although an on-and-off guest-worker program for Mexicans was operating at the time, farmers and ranchers in the Southwest had become dependent on an additional low-cost, docile, illegal labor force of up to 3 million, mostly Mexican, laborers.

According to the Handbook of Texas Online, published by the University of Texas at Austin and the Texas State Historical Association, this illegal workforce had a severe impact on the wages of ordinary working Americans. The Handbook Online reports that a study by the President's Commission on Migratory Labor in Texas in 1950 found that cotton growers in the Rio Grande Valley, where most illegal aliens in Texas worked, paid wages that were "approximately half" the farm wages paid elsewhere in the state.

Profits from illegal labor led to the kind of corruption that apparently worried Eisenhower.

Joseph White, a retired 21-year veteran of the Border Patrol, says that in the early 1950s, some senior US officials overseeing immigration enforcement "had friends among the ranchers," and agents "did not dare" arrest their illegal workers.

Walt Edwards, who joined the Border Patrol in 1951, tells a similar story. He says: "When we caught illegal aliens on farms and ranches, the farmer or rancher would often call and complain [to officials in El Paso]. And depending on how politically connected they were, there would be political intervention. That is how we got into this mess we are in now."

Bill Chambers, who worked for a combined 33 years for the Border Patrol and the then-called US Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), says politically powerful people are still fueling the flow of illegals.

 During the 1950s, however, this "Good Old Boy" system changed under Eisenhower – if only for about 10 years.
In 1954, Ike appointed retired Gen. Joseph "Jumpin' Joe" Swing, a former West Point classmate and veteran of the 101st Airborne, as the new INS commissioner.

One of Swing's first decisive acts was to transfer certain entrenched immigration officials out of the border area to other regions of the country where their political connections with people such as Senator Johnson would have no effect.

 Then on June 17, 1954, what was called "Operation Wetback" began. Because political resistance was lower in California and Arizona, the roundup of aliens began there. Some 750 agents swept northward through agricultural areas with a goal of 1,000 apprehensions a day. By the end of July, over 50,000 aliens were caught in the two states. Another 488,000, fearing arrest, had fled the country.

 By mid-July, the crackdown extended northward into Utah, Nevada, and Idaho, and eastward to Texas.

By September, 80,000 had been taken into custody in Texas, and an estimated 500,000 to 700,000 illegals had left the Lone Star State voluntarily.

 Unlike today, Mexicans caught in the roundup were not simply released at the border, where they could easily reenter the US. To discourage their return, Swing arranged for buses and trains to take many aliens deep within Mexico before being set free.

Tens of thousands more were put aboard two hired ships, the Emancipation and the Mercurio. The ships ferried the aliens from Port Isabel, Texas, to Vera Cruz, Mexico, more than 500 miles south.

Google to start selling humanoid robots - Yes humans are that stupid

Coming soon to either take your job or kick your ass.

Good-Bye Jobs
  • The new Google robot can walk, climb, use tools and even drive a car.  You can say good-bye to tens of thousands of truck driving and taxi jobs to the non-union droid workforce.
  • You can bet your sweet ass that the new droid can also fire a gun and will soon "assist" humans in law enforcement.

Google is to start selling a humanoid robot which can walk, climb, use tools and even drive a car.
Called Schaft, the robot was developed by a Japanese firm bought by Google.

It recently won a military ‘robo-olympics’ – but Google has revealed the machine is being pulled from future rounds of the contest so it can be developed into the firm’s first commercial robot.

Schaft’s 1.48m (4ft 11in) tall, two-legged robot entered the contest the favourite and lived up to its reputation.

Its engineers say this lets its arms move and pivot at higher speeds than would otherwise be possible, in effect giving it stronger 'muscles'.
The announcement came as the next round of the robo-contest was revealed.
'The first-place finisher, SCHAFT, has elected to withdraw from the Finals to focus on the development of its first commercial product,' organisers said.

The Kurds won't make way

Iraq Kurds Won't Give Up Territory
  • Kurdish Leader Says His Forces Won't Relinquish Cities and Towns They Are Defending Against Sunni Rebels.

The leader of Iraq's Kurds said his forces won't relinquish territory they are defending against Sunni rebels, adding to worries that continued fighting could speed the breakup of Iraq along ethnic and religious lines.

After Sunni insurgents led by the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham launched their military offensive in northern Iraq three weeks ago, Kurdish fighters stepped into the breach left by the Baghdad government's ineffective and retreating armed forces reports the Wall Street Journal.
On Friday, Massoud Barzani, president of Iraq's semiautonomous Kurdish region, said that control of Kirkuk and other towns now guarded by Kurdish forces wouldn't revert to the central government in Baghdad when the crisis subsides.
"Now this [issue]…is achieved," he said, alluding to the Kurds' long-running aspiration for self-rule in their northern Iraqi stronghold.

Traitors - America's borders are wide open to invasion

Where the Fuck is the U.S. Army?
The Borders of the United States are Undefended

By Gary;

Every time I log on to Drudge there is some new horror at the American border with an endless flood of illegals pouring over.

Simply, we are ruled over by traitors.

On the orders of our liar hack politicians the U.S. Army has abandoned defending the borders of our country in order to defend the borders of Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea and Germany.

As the illegal alien invasion picks up steam Democrats are virtually meeting law breaking illegals at the border with cash and voter registration forms while Republicans hide under their desks quivering in fear of offending Hispanic voters.

The U.S. is on its last legs and in danger of being completely overrun and bankrupted by the billions of poor people in the world.

All Employment Growth Since 2000 Went to Immigrants

I have Blogged on this repeatedly that the bi-partisan corrupt American Ruling Class hates their own people and are eagerly importing the citizens of foreign nations to replace us.

Now according to a major new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), net employment growth in the United States since 2000 has gone entirely to immigrants, legal and illegal.

Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, CIS scholars Steven A. Camarota and Karen Zeigler found that there were 127,000 fewer working-age natives holding a job in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000, while the number of immigrants with a job was 5.7 million above the 2000 level reports the National Review.

The so-called "leaders" of the U.S. no longer have the desire or the backbone needed to call out the army and defend our nation's borders.

Democrats Screw African Americans
Insane liberal Democrats bow down and worship illegal aliens and hand over American jobs to the citizens of foreign nations.  Democrats are telling unemployed American citizens of African, Hispanic or European heritage to go fuck themselves.
Meanwhile the GOP falls all over themselves to import millions for "legal" immigrants for their Masters in business who want to flood the job market and lower wages.
No one is standing up for the American worker.

Ron Wyden, Mark Udall and Rand Paul: How to end the NSA dragnet

One year ago this month, Americans learned that their government was engaged in secret dragnet surveillance, which contradicted years of assurances to the contrary from senior government officials and intelligence leaders.

On this anniversary, it is more important than ever to let Congress and the administration know that Americans will reject half-measures that could still allow the government to collect millions of Americans' records without any individual suspicion or evidence of wrongdoing.

It is time to end the dragnet — and to affirm that we can keep our nation secure without trampling on and abandoning Americans' constitutional rights.

For years, in both statements to the public and open testimony before the House and Senate, senior government officials claimed that domestic surveillance was narrow in focus and limited in scope.

But in June 2013, Americans learned through leaked classified documents that these claims bore little resemblance to reality. In fact, the NSA has been relying on a secret interpretation of the USA Patriot Act to vacuum up the phone records of millions of law-abiding citizens. Under a separate program, intelligence agencies are using a loophole in the law to read some Americans' emails without ever getting a warrant.

Dragnet surveillance was approved by a secret court that normally hears only the government's side of major cases. It had been debated only in a few secret congressional committee hearings, and many members of Congress were entirely unaware it. When laws like the Patriot Act were reauthorized, a vocal minority of senators and representatives — including the three of us — objected, but the secrecy surrounding these programs made it difficult to mobilize public support.

And yet, it was inevitable that mass surveillance and warrantless searches would eventually be exposed. When the plain text of the law differs so dramatically from how it is interpreted and applied, in effect creating a body of secret law, it simply isn't sustainable. So when the programs' existence became public last summer, huge numbers of Americans were justifiably stunned and angry at how they had been misled and by the degree to which their privacy rights had been routinely violated. Inflated claims about the program's value have burst under public scrutiny, and there is now a groundswell of public support for reform.

Benjamin Franklin once warned that a society that trades essential liberties for short-term security risks losing both. That is still true today, and even the staunchest defenders of mass surveillance concede that reforms are inevitable.

As an initial step, we have worked with our colleagues in the House and Senate to build support for a package of real and meaningful changes to the law that would promote the restoration of Americans' constitutional rights and freedoms, while protecting national security.

This package of reforms includes overhauling domestic surveillance laws to ban the bulk collection of Americans' personal information, and closing the loophole that allows intelligence agencies to deliberately read Americans' emails without a warrant. It includes reshaping the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by installing an advocate who can argue for Americans' constitutional rights when the court is considering major cases, and by requiring that significant interpretations of U.S. law and the Constitution be made public.

"Illegal Spying Below": Blimp Flies Over NSA Utah Data Center in Protest

The secret NSA Utah spying center.

"Illegal Spying Below"

National Security Agency workers in Utah found themselves under an eye in the sky Friday morning — an airship emblazoned with "Illegal Spying Below," floating directly above the agency's huge data center outside Bluffdale.
The airship (technically, blimps have no rigid structure) was engineered by Greenpeace, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Tenth Amendment Center to promote a new website, StandAgainstSpying.org, that lets people track legislators' voting records on NSA surveillance matters.
Why Greenpeace? For one thing, they're part of an ongoing lawsuit against the NSA concerning alleged First Amendment violations by the agency. "We can't have clean air and clean water if we don't have a healthy democracy with basic human freedoms," explained Greenpeace's David Pomerantz in an email to NBC News. "Freedom of association, speech and privacy are crucial for our democracy."
"The public needs to be brought into the Congressional debate around surveillance reform happening right now," EFF Activism Director Rainey Reitman said. "We're flying an airship over the Utah data center, which has come to symbolize the NSA's collect-it-all approach to surveillance, and demanding an end to the mass spying. It's time for bold action in defense of our privacy."

"Our right to privacy is not a partisan issue. It's a human rights issue," said Michael Boldin, executive director and founder of the Tenth Amendment Center. "This coalition gives great hope for the future because it shows that people across the political spectrum can set aside differences to work together for common cause."
The NSA declined to comment on the airship.

(RT News)

A coalition of grassroots groups from across the political spectrum joined forces to fly an airship over the NSA's data center in Bluffdale, Utah on Friday, June 27, 2014, to protest the government's illegal mass surveillance program.

ISIS holds military parade in Mosul

Click photos to enlarge

Everyone Loves a Parade

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham's Ninewa Division continues to crank out images of its conquest of Mosul and the surrounding province. Earlier today, the Ninewa Division released photographs of its forces seizing control of several bases, displaying captured military hardware, and executing Iraqi soldiers.

Then, the Ninewa Division published a set of photographs of a military parade in the city of Mosul.

The photographs provide a glimpse of the ISIS' military strength in Mosul. Scores of ISIS technicals, as well as several captured US-supplied Humvees, armored cars, and even artillery pieces are shown. Hundreds of ISIS fighters are involved in the parade, which begins during the day and goes on through the night.

A subset of the photographs is published below.

Scores of ISIS vehicles and hundreds of fighters line up for the parade:
