Iran nuclear talks: We must 'seize moment' says Foreign Secretary Hague ~ link ~ The world could be on the edge of a major peace/nuclear deal between the West and Iran. This is hated by Netanyahu and his fellow nuts and they will continue to do all they can to derail this, but the closeness that we all got to World War III in September is the main driver behind this.

The Most Effective Weapon of the Globalists ~ link ~ Good One...do take the time to read it all at the link. Stirling
We often hear talk about the all-powerful global elite and how they are invincible. They are not invincible, they are blinded by their avarice, decadence and insatiable desire to dominate a humanity that they hold in such disdain.
I have studied their playbook and have learned their mindset. As a result, I have learned that they have vulnerabilities. Just like a quarterback that doesn’t like pressure as they attempt to pass from the “pocket”, they can be forced to scramble. I have seen time and time again that when their evil agendas are exposed in the light of day, they run for cover. The latest example of this global elite acquiescence to the will of the people was in Syria when their agenda was exposed by the truthful media. The alternative media was relentless in our exposing the fact that the CIA shipped in the chemical weapons so that al-Qaeda would use them on the Syrian civilians. As a result, the puppet Obama had to run for cover and we have not heard a word “Syria” come from his mouth or the mouth of warmonger, John McCain, since the globalist agenda was exposed. Enlightenment and education would seem to be the keys to turning back the globalist invasion of the United States.
A Snapshot of StupidityAre we really surprised at the following?
Political StupidityThe following are facts which should inspire a collective sense of national shame.
So, what is it that Tony Blair has to hide? ~ link ~
Increasing numbers of people – especially the young – believe our political system is a closed circle: secretive, impenetrable and corrupt.
If you want to know why so many feel alienated, just take a look at a story that speaks volumes about the unaccountability of our political masters.

Decent wages or a breadline economy: It's a no-brainer ~ link ~ Ed Miliband's speech at Battersea power station in London on Tuesday this week attracted a lot of attention. Not least because of the Labour leader's own choice of battleground for the 2015 election, the debate has focused on his ideas about wages: his proposal to raise minimum wages in sectors such as finance, and to provide tax breaks for firms that pay living wages.
The reactions have been predictable. Many people are up in arms against the very idea that the government may "artificially" raise wages through market intervention. Many, including a former adviser to Tony Blair, solemnly warn that this will create unemployment and hurt British companies – or, to be more precise, companies that operate in Britain, as so few are owned by British citizens nowadays.
No car, no FICO score, no problem: The NINJAs have taken over the Subprime Lunatic Asylum ~ link ~ One of the most trumpeted stories justifying the US economic "recovery" is the resurgence in car sales, which have now returned to an annual sales clip almost on par with that from before the great depression. What is conveniently left out of all such stories is what is the funding for these purchases (funnelling through to the top and bottom line of such administration darling companies as GM) comes from. The answer: the same NINJA loans, with non-existent zero credit rating requirements that allowed anything with a pulse to buy a McMansion during the peak day of the last credit bubble.

The United States has more people in prison than it has high school teachers and engineers ~ link ~ Sadly, you cannot make this stuff up! Stirling
America has become a gigantic gulag over the past few decades and most of its citizens don’t know, or just don’t care. One of the primary causes of the over incarceration in the U.S. is the absurd, tragic failure that is the “war on drugs”, and indeed nearly half of the folks in prison are there for drug related offenses. Making matters worse is a rapidly growing private prison system, which adds a profit motive to the equation. Recently, I wrote an extensive rant against the private prison system and provided details on how it works in: A Deep Look into the Shady World of the Private Prison Industry.
Now here are some of the sad facts. There are 1.57 million people in federal and state prison (does not even include county and local jail) according to the Department of Justice. That’s above the nation’s 1.53 million engineers and 1.05 million high school teachers.
