The Pacific trade deal has all kinds of protections for businesses — but not for workers | GlobalPost

Obama’s newest fight with Congress is the trade agreement that he supports, the TPP…….we are told all about how good it will be for this country……Obama and his conservative supports are pulling out all stops to make this thing happen……..

The problem is, at least for me, that all the promises and talk has all  been said before……that time by Bubba Clinton and his abortion, NAFTA……for all the good they told us it would do just somehow did not help any body but business…..the workers were screwed….as always……the TPP will be NO different.

If this is such a superb deal for the country then why is it a secret?  Why is it not possible for us to see the agreement before it is finalized?

TPP will be nothing but a con to promote and protect business…..workers will be left at the curb…..as they always are in these “good” deals……..

Where Have The Nazis Gone?

For about two years people like myself have been writing about the situation in Ukraine……after the revolution, Orange revolution, put a person who shunned the US and turned to Russia…….the West, mostly the US, decided it was time for him to go and they would put their own man in the power seat………and that person is leading the Ukraine today.

After the move we started telling everyone that these thugs in power and elsewhere were basically Nazis/Fascists…….NO one listened……No one cared……but now the real story is coming to light…..

And now we know where the all the Nazis have gone……Ukraine….each and every one.

 

U.S. House Admits Nazi Role in Ukraine | Consortiumnews.

This is not the first time that the US has recognized a Nazi as a national leader…..it happened in Lithuania in the early 1990’s…….

We hate Russia so much that we will get into bed with Nazis……..kinda sad….if you ask me.

Middle East – Are there any ‘moderate’ rebel groups left in Syria? – France 24

It is the beginning of another election cycle and because of that we will hear hour upon hour of GOP chest thumping about ISIS and the defeat of extremism……none of which will be accurate but it does make for some wonderful applause moments……

Of course their answer is that we, the US, must support the “moderate” rebels in their fight against Assad and ISIS…..the problem with their argument is just which rebel faction is the “moderates” that we need to support…….

This article may have the answer we all are searching for in our research to find an answer to the ISIS problem…….

Wassup in Yemen?

The big news in the MSM is that 3 inmates have escaped and NO one has any idea where to look for them…….then a minor story was the death of the AQAP leader in Yemen killed by a drone strike……….

Al-Qaeda has confirmed that Nasser al-Wuhayshi, the leader of its offshoot in the Arabian Peninsula, has been killed in a US drone strike in Yemen.

Nasser al-Wuhayshi was a major global figure among jihadists – even supporters of al-Qaeda’s rival Islamic State viewed Wuhayshi with respect.

According to reports, in August 2013 Wuhayshi was appointed deputy of al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri, a sign of the extent of his influence.

As well as creating AQAP itself, Wuhayshi also played a major role in forming the AQAP off-shoot, Ansar al-Sharia, in 2011, to appeal to disaffected youth in Yemen at the time of the Arab Spring.

Let me be one of the first to introduce my readers to the next leader of AQAP……….

The newly appointed leader of al Qaeda’s Yemen affiliate is a senior commander whose longstanding devotion to jihad landed him on the United States’ “Most Wanted” list of terrorists with a $5 million bounty on his head.

Qassim Al-Rimi was named Tuesday as the new head of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) following the death of Nasir al-Wuhayshi in a U.S. strike.

I do hope that that may be of some assistance to our intel agencies……we try to be helpful whenever possible……..

Now with that news there is another question that is bugging me……Saudis are still bombing the crap out of Yemen……… back into the Stone Age to get at the Houthi rebels and yet the US had to use a drone strike to kill a terrorist…….why is that?

I thought that the Saudis were our allies and that we depend on them for cooperation in the Arabian Peninsula….are they truly fighting terrorists or are they just killing a rivals?

Since the Saudis seem to be ignoring AQAP in their attacks in Yemen are they in fact helping AQAP get stronger in the region by ignoring them?

Maybe it is time to re-think this whole Saudi-US alliance….apparently they will be of NO help in fighting AQ…..then why do we need them?  What part do they play in the grand scheme of the War on Terror?

I know I am a pain in the butt…..but should not someone, anyone be asking these questions?

Displaced Yazidis still on Mount Sinjar

Can a person really love their laxative?  Sorry, had to ask.  The ad tells me that it is okay…….

Think back about a year ago and what lead to our involvement in the situation in Iraq with ISIS……..if you will recall there were some Iraqis trapped on a mountain, the Yazidis…….it was a humanitarian crisis and being a good player the US had to act to protect them…….we dropped supplies and used airstrikes against ISIS to cover the aid as it was delivered…….

Is any of this familiar at all?

The story was that there were thousands trapped on the mountain and under the threat of death if ISIS got to them……in reality it was all a hoax, a story made up to justify our intervention in Iraq…..AGAIN.

Why would I make such an accusation?

The Yazidis are still trapped on the mountain and yet NO one gives a crap…….all they were was an excuse for the use of military force……..

Read about these people for yourself……..
