In case there was any doubt that welfare programs are nothing more than Democrat vote buying:

Public Housing
81% Democrat/12% Republican

Medicaid
74% Democrat/16% Republican

Food Stamps
67% Democrat/20% Republican

Unemployment Compensation
66% Democrat/21% Republican

Disability
64% Democrat/25% Republican

Welfare/Public Assistance
63% Democrat/22% Republican

No comment needed:

Quote:EU bans claim that water can prevent dehydration

EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact.
Producers of bottled water are now forbidden by law from making the claim and will face a two-year jail sentence if they defy the edict, which comes into force in the UK next month.
...
A meeting of 21 scientists in Parma, Italy, concluded that reduced water content in the body was a symptom of dehydration and not something that drinking water could subsequently control.
Now the EFSA verdict has been turned into an EU directive which was issued on Wednesday.

New NRA ad:





News article bashing the NRA and the ad as disrespectful.


Quote:The National Rifle Association is stepping on soldiers' graves — and apparently violating government policy — in its latest shameful display.

The organization's Political Victory Fund released an anti-Hillary Clinton ad Wednesday, "Stop Clinton, Vote Trump," that shows former Marine and Benghazi attack survivor Mark Geist walking through a veterans cemetery.


Any vets here? Do you find the ad disrespectful?

Former Insider: “Facebook Could Throw an Election….It’s Scary”
Quote:Ex-product manager says social media giant is run like a cult by "sociopaths in hoodies"
Paul Joseph Watson - July 5, 2016

[Image: 041416zuckerberg2.jpg]

A former Facebook insider has lifted the lid on the social networking giant, revealing that the company operates more like a cult and has amassed so much power that it could decide the 2016 presidential election.

Former Facebook product manager Antonio Garcia Martínez, who worked for the company between 2011 and 2013, has written a tell-all exposé in which he divulges how Mark Zuckerberg’s empire is “akin to a cult” run by “sociopaths in hoodies” who make “Gordon Gekko look like Ghandi.”

In an environment that resembles a “mafioso drama with a lot of aggressive behavior and back-room dealing,” Facebook executives behave more like ‘gangsters’ than SIlicon Valley whiz kids, according to Martínez, who tells the Telegraph’s Alix O’Neill, “Everyone freaked out when they found out I’d written this.”

However, Martínez’ most eye-opening bombshell – especially in light of the recent scandal surrounding censorship of conservatives – is that Facebook execs routinely ‘joked’ about how they could influence politics.

“At the end of the day, there’s nothing restraining Zuck’s vision. One of the jokes we had was that Facebook could throw an election by showing reminders to go vote in certain districts but not others. That’s the level of control it has. It’s scary,” said Martínez.

Back in 2014 it was revealed that Facebook had run an experiment to test if it could manipulate users’ emotions by altering the content they saw on their home feed – and it worked.

This suggests the ‘joke’ was in fact an entirely serious possibility.

Given Facebook’s propensity towards censoring and banning conservative content, in addition to Zuckerberg’s cozy relationship with Barack Obama, it’s somewhat unlikely that the social media giant would be pulling for Donald Trump on election day.

Why does Breitbart cuck so hard for Israel?

Their coverage of U.S. Politics is excelent, and it's possibly the best source for 2016 U.S. elections coverage, but when it comes to Israel and the Jews, they toe the cuckservative line in a way that really turns my stomach.

Are they afraid of the Big Bad Jew Wolf or are they funded by Zionists?

Some 5 stupid teenage jewish girls joining ISIS is not inconceivable. There are bound to be some stupid ones even among the smartest people in the world. No conspiracy in this case, I think.

There was a huge leftist riot in Berlin tonight.

Apparently more than a hundred riot cops injured. 1800 cops deployed against 7000+ rioters?

https://www.rt.com/news/350446-germany-b...tist-riot/

Only news outlets I've seen covering this so far are RT and a Swedish newspaper. Not a peep in Der Spiegel, CNN, BBC...

Edit: Reason for the riot was that police were clearing leftist squatters from an occupied house, pictured below:

As you can see, police were facing a thoroughly well-disciplined and organised group...

Bill Mitchell's show on Spreaker, Your Voice Radio is excellent, he's maybe the best Trump pundit aside from Scott Adams. There are several co-presenters and on Thursdays it is Joe Dan Gorman, creator of the humorous political video series Intellectual Frog Legs. He has a wonderful sense of humour and it's well worth a look.

In this episode from five days ago he interviews the prolific political cartoonist A.F. Branco.





Here he interviews the anti-Islamic scholar Dr. Bill Warner.

Unfortunately escaping from the Israel is our BFF matrix will be many years and multiple American first presidents away. Keep in mind that Trump originally said that he would need to approach the Israel / Palestine conflict neutrally (as any arbitrator would tell you is absolutely correct), then a few weeks later was made to grovel before our "staunchest ally".

US Has Spent $11.5 Million A Day For Past 542 Days Straight In Fight Against ISIS

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-22...ainst-isis

Quote:After two years of bombing, the U.S. recently marked a horrendous milestone in a war with no clear end in sight.

Vocativ reported that the American-led coalition in the Middle East has now dropped 50,000 bombs in the ongoing campaign against Daesh (an Arabic acronym for the terrorist group commonly known as ISIS or ISIL in the West) that began in August 2014.

The analysis noted that bombing has increased with time, peaking in June when coalition forces dropped 3,167 bombs on Iraq and Syria.

“By comparison, U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan have dropped just over 16,000 bombs in the last six years, military data shows,” Shane Dixon Kavanaugh, a senior writer for Vocativ, wrote on Tuesday.

Although reports suggest Daesh is losing to ground forces in the region, the conflict still has no clear end in sight. And despite U.S. government denials, Kavanaugh reported it’s become increasingly clear that civilians are frequently killed by bombs dropped by the U.S. and coalition forces:

Friends, just in case you don't understand how evil and sick our government is, you should read the article above in full.

Not only do we wage endless war and waste an ungodly amount of money, but our enemy never seems to grow any weaker and in fact launches more and more attacks against the West and the rest of the world. The US Gov's incompetence is staggering.

RE: Politics & War Lounge
The Obama administration is saying that the fact that ISIS are getting pushed back on the ground in Syria/Iraq territory-wise has led to them lashing out and making more attacks abroad.

That's how they spin it, anyway.

"The basis for true change is freedom from negativity. And that's what acceptance implies: no negativity about what is."

I've heard tell that a lot of these bombs are being dropped on abandoned towns in the middle of nowhere. Hence why there was at one stage such a huge media circus focussing on "how many bombs we dropped" as being a marker for effectiveness (high fives for everyone in the military industrial complex).

The US needs ISIS to remain a threat in Iraq so they can keep the pimp hand strong with the Iraqi government. The sense of the balance being "if you don't give us what we want then we're going to let those head hackers overrun this place."
