The Jewish State in the Levant is a burden we shouldn’t have to bear
by Justin Raimondo, November 24, 2014
Today [November 24, 2014] is the deadline for the closing of a deal with Iran regarding their nuclear program. No one should be surprised that Israel is marking this deadline with a threat to attack Iran regardless of the outcome of the negotiations. As the Jerusalem Post is reporting on its front page:
"Israel has issued a stark, public warning to its allies with a clear argument: Current proposals guarantee the perpetuation of a crisis, backing Israel into a corner from which military force against Iran provides the only logical exit."
This is a lie, and is widely recognized as such: the Israelis don’t have the military capacity to take out all the Iranian nuclear sites without American assistance. Aside from that, however, they never attack those capable of hitting back in any significant way, so we can write off this latest threat as just so much kvetching.
I live in New Jersey, but travel a lot because I work in the music business. My car still has the Ron Paul Revolution bumper sticker in the back bumper of my car. I still have people approach me and sometimes it gives me time to open some minds in the process.
I recently went back to college to get my masters degree. I always drive my car to the nearby campus where a ton of students are at. I get in a lot of conversations and even get asked about the bumper sticker.
In 1971, US President Richard Nixon closed the 'gold window', ending the free exchange of dollars for gold, guaranteed by the US in 1944 at Bretton Woods.
In 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin has reopened the 'gold window', without asking Washington's permission.

NEW YORK — Give Woody Harrelson a piece of yarn, and he'll knit you a full-on, multicolored sweater. Here's his take on playing crafty mentor Haymitch Abernathy sober, as opposed to falling-down drunk in the past two Hunger Games films.
"I wanted to give him a little more of a tortured expression: Jesus Christ, sobriety! Honestly, when I was first playing him — I will generally go over the top if allowed," says Harrelson, who credits directorial restraint for his more muted performance in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 (opens today in select cities and Friday nationwide). "A guy who's an alcoholic, a lot of times you have no idea they're drunk."
One heavy drinker of Harrelson's acquaintance, "he was big on grapefruit and vodka, with very little grapefruit. He could carry the thing and never spill a drop. He was so functional. It was impressive. He has since passed. He was a good character."
Even in the cases where the male celebrity actually went to jail? When they were actually convicted of a crime? It rarely affects their career or legacy.
Mike Tyson went to jail for raping Desiree Washington.
Tupac Shakur spent time in jail for orchestrating the gang rape of Ayanna Jackson.
Peter Yarrow, of Peter, Paul and Mary spent three months in jail for taking “sexual liberties” with a 14 year-old girl. He was later given an official Presidential pardon by Jimmy Carter!
Roman Polanski plead down to “unlawful sexual intercourse” with the then 13 year-old Samantha Geimer at the home of of Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston. He never went to jail, but he sure did win an Oscar, and pretty much every celebrity you know and love has come forward to defend him. By the way, he was also accused of sexually assaulting then 16 year-old English actress Charlotte Lewis.
An internal document issued by IT experts working for the German federal government warned national agencies and companies not to use Windows 8. The reason? An alleged backdoor exploit has been discovered, and the details were obtained and published by German site Zeit Online. The leaked message suggests that the NSA likely has access to a hidden feature which apparently can’t be shut off and allows Microsoft to remotely control any computer running the software.
Years ago, my husband and I saw a study published that indicated milk was probably a culprit in the onset of juvenile (type 1) diabetes. The study was soon scrubbed, and the insulin manufacturers continued with their highly profitable business. Similar studies can now be found:
(although the CDC continues to deny the link.)
Just a warning. This is absolutely heartbreaking.

[SERIOUS] Retired soldiers on Reddit: What was something that you saw or experienced that you never shared with anyone?
Also veterans, thank you for your service and dedication to this country. If you were in a different country's military, you'll still have my respect for doing serving your country.
Edit: I live in America, for clarification.
Edit: Wow thanks for the gold whoever it was.

I have been searching here for a few days now to see is there is any discussion concerning G-20. I have not found anything, so if this has been discussed please let me know where. Zero Hedge suggested using credit unions; any safer?
