Since the inception of this website, I have postulated that the stock market is rigged due to high speed trading that was shaving pennies off each trade in an Office Space/Superman 3 way raising billions in the process. A new book by Michael Lewis "Flash Boys," says that it is exactly what is going on and that is also why the stock market hasn't had a major correction in over five years now, a record in US history. 60 Minutes showed a glimmer of it's former glory by doing a terrific expose on the whole thing and I would highly recommend that everyone check out the piece immediately.

The funny part is this whole thing is nothing more than a variation of an old con called "the Wire." Anyone who's ever seen the movie "The Sting," knows that the Wire is the central con being used to fleece Robert Shaw's character. In this con game, the cons set up the mark by knowing the outcome of whatever the mark is betting on. In "The Sting," they set up Shaw by knowing the results of a horse race by intercepting the signal moments before releasing the info, thus knowing who won and who didn't. High speed computers are doing the same thing to investors.

These computers have figured out a way to know what people are buying, getting those stocks themselves and selling them back to the investors for a profit. It's pennies on the dollar but they are doing it millions of times every day. It's a no lose situation and the fundamental reason the stock market has risen non stop for five years. Like the horse race, the computers know what stocks will "win" and are betting accordingly. This cheats the regular investor out of billions in profits and instead gives it to the banks and the rich. If there was ever proof the cards are stacked against you this is it. It is the equivalent of going to a casino and have a 100% chance of losing every time against the house. Who would bet on odds like that?

The worst part about this is it can only continue so long before it will crash to the Earth and leave a smoldering hole behind. As most stocks are now owned only by the super rich and corporations, there will come a day when the whole Ponzi scheme collapses, much like the housing market is doing as well. Investors are starting to leave the housing market as prices have risen too high to make a profit on, and it's 2008 all over again.

While all of this occurring, some are starting to see the cracks in society. Albuquerque was besieged by angry mobs pissed at their trigger happy police force that killed an unarmed homeless man and then lied about it. People took to the street in protest which turned violent as many said they had had it with the local police force which is acting more like a dangerous threat than what they are supposed to be "protecting and serving." Cybergroup Anonymous has apparently started to attack local government and police offices, although no group has been publically identified yet. The point is, the police are going too far in many places and people are starting to wake up and fight back.

Some have started to warn others about the fact that world seems to be entering into a cycle of civil wars the likes of which hasn't been since the late 1700's. This is from Zero Hedge and Martin Armstrong:

This is no plain modern event with civil unrest erupting because of an interconnected world. These are grassroots uprisings cross-fertilized perhaps from a world contagion yet they often have similarities – corrupt governments. Turkey, Ukraine, Thailand, Venezuela and Bosnia-Herzegovina are all middle-income democracies with elected leaders besieged by people angry at misgovernment, corruption and economic sclerosis. These days it is no longer just dictators who have something to fear from the crowd. This is the promise of Marxism that centralized planning and false promises are coming home and governments are too corrupt and incompetent to deliver what they have claimed for decades.

Communism is dead. The socialistic agendas that have lined the pockets of government and filled the coffers of banks is over. The national debts are on average composed of 70% interest payments not programs to help the poor as marketed. The debts that keep growing with no intent upon paying anyone back are draining the national productivity and turning the people into economic slaves. The standard of living has declined and it now takes two incomes to survive where one use to be just fine. Women won the right to work and lost the right to stay home.

The promises that you save for the future have collapsed into dust as interest rates have been driven lower making savings utterly worthless. There is no such thing as saving and living off your fixed income. The elderly are being driven back into the work force and the whole ideas that a generation believed in are vanishing before their eyes.

So it is no longer communists and dictators that are the targets. All governments are now the targets and when the economy turns down after 2015.75, the threat of civilization will be pulled apart by the self-interest of politicians clinging to power to the detriment of the people.

This seems very accurate for what is about to happen as there is no way greedy politicians and corrupt elites are going to change their ways as they fight for their power which is slowly ebbing away as many of us are catching on to their grand schemes. Obama has proved no better than any of predecessors at telling the truth and the end result is people are going to start standing up to these people with violence. JFK said it best "when peaceful protest becomes impossible, violent revolution becomes inevitable." We are rapidly heading that direction. The smarter of us better start fighting for what is right because the end result is going to be an epic disaster in which millions of people are going to die. The choice is yours dear reader. Get off your asses and start demanding better or live on your knees and wait for death.

You have got to give to the corpulent NJ Governor for the sheer balls to commission your own investigation into the Bridgegate scandal, do as little as possible in said investigation and then declare yourself innocent of all charges while publically ridiculing any reporter who dares to say different. THE BALLS! Let's see those runner ups in a crowded doucheathon this week.

1)Nick Cannon- This week Nick Cannon decided it would be funny to dress up in white face and make some truly racist comments for his questionably titled album "White People Music." I am sure the black crowd thought it was hysterical but this was outright racist as the hash tags under the picture read such bon mots as "beer pong," "Farmer's Market," and my favorite "Cream Cheese eating." Let's replace that with a white guy in black face with hash tags that say "blunt smoking," "drive by shooting," and "Fried chicken." That guy would have to move and change his name and appearance. Cannon gets a pass. Why? Julianne Hough got in huge trouble for wearing blackface on Halloween but this is acceptable? It's not. Stop thinking that only white people can be racist. It's really starting to show and let me tell you, white people on the lower scales of this country are starting to notice. If you want to see what racism REALLY looks like, keep it up. You will see it soon enough otherwise and that is not something you or I want to see.

2)Suey Park-On the flip side of the whole racism concept is this woman who has decided to launch an effort to cancel Stephen Colbert for a joke about Asian people. Nevermind the fact that this quote, "The Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever," is taken completely out of context, much like seeing a still of Robert Downey Jr. in blackface in Tropic Thunder would be. Now Park is a very pretty 23 year old Korean author who writes well. However, I think this whole thing is less about Colbert and instead is her trying to catapult herself to instant celebrity which has worked well if that was the case. If she is serious, she needs to get a life and stop with the "whoa is me" syndrome that every young person seems to be infected with lately. This was a joke ABOUT racism, not a racist joke and there is a difference. Nick Cannon doesn't get it any better than this woman does apparently.

3)TSA- It came out today that security at LAX has been stealing anything not nailed down for the past few years, netting millions in lost items. This is hot on the heels of another expose from a former TSA agent who said his supervisors were borderline retarded, everyone was pissed at how they got treated from said superiors and that security was more or less a joke that would never actually stop anyone. For this privilege we spent billions on nothing while getting raped to get to Des Moines.

4)The Albuquerque NM police department- These trigger happy morons are being investigated by multiple agencies after a slew of questionable shootings this past week involving the possible assassination of a homeless man which was caught on tape and shows a drastically different scenario than what they reported. Less than three hours after this incident, they shot and killed someone else in equally questionable manner. This department is still under review for civil rights issues filed last year by the DOJ and FBI. I am glad I don't live there.

5)Gina Reinhart- Everyone's favorite deranged baby elephant resurfaced this week as it was revealed that for some inane reason US taxpayers are subsidizing this fat bitch to the tune of $694 million. Are you fucking kidding me? She's going to spend all of it on pudding and human skin carpets. Funny how this story never made the news like the DOJ taking orders from the banks or the BP oil spill on Lake Michigan. Due to cronyism, Roy Hill and Caterpillar stand to make billions on this deal as well, to the detriment of everyone else. Senators like Al Franken have come out against the deal and thank God someone is paying attention. Thanks to a worthless Export-import bank run by the FED, deals like this are happening all the time. You wonder where our money went? It went to people like Gina Reinhart who isn't even an American. But we can't afford food stamps and Medicare. Awesome.

6)The Vatican- No this isn't a slam against the pope, but someone in the Vatican this week ordered a crap load of coke which was intercepted by authorities first. Whoever wanted their drugs must have had a ton of money because this amount was not cheap. My guess would be a priest would take the drugs and get a kickback selling to the black market, using the Vatican as a smart place to get it delivered to as there would be no way to trace it specifically to.anyone That's smart. And weird.

7)Pat Cannon- Not a good week for anyone named Cannon apparently. The mayor of Charlotte, NC was arrested this week less than six months into office for a stunning amount of charges of bribery and extortion. He is accused of taking tens of thousands of dollars in cash, luxury goods and lavish vacations. He has since resigned and is facing 50 years in jail. Good luck because you are going to need it as they have him on tape ABSCAM style taking money. He is so screwed.

8)Sheldon Adelson- Proving that rich people have way too much power, the Republican billionaire began holding auditions for the 2016 Presidential election. Read that sentence again and tell me you think that you think this is a good idea to have American Idol call backs for the most powerful office in the world. This is the guy that kept Newt Gingrich in the last race for far longer than he should have been and then threw even more money for Mitt Romney to lose. I am still hearing that the reason the GOP lost the last few election have been because they felt Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney were TOO LIBERAL. Yeah, that's why they got creamed in the electoral college. If they move further to the right, the Democrats could run a dead squirrel in 2016 and still win.

9)Chuck Shumer- I don't like Chuck Shumer. He is a typical Democratic liberal whose expiration is way past it's sell off point. Instead of fighting for the little guy like Al Franken and Liz Warren, he seems more obsessed with gun control, raising taxes and now, ending shield laws for most journalists. His latest bit of garbage is to grant licenses to "legitimate" writers, as if anyone gets a say in who is a real writer and who isn't. Without First Amendment protections, sites like this will disappear and real news will be no better than North Korea at that point. Shumer needs to go in the next election so let's hope some better democrat will challenge him in the next election because the GOP candidate will almost certainly be terrible.

10)CA State Senator Leland Yee- Not a good week for democrats either as this hypocritical douchebag came one step from being the grand poobah on my list. For years, this guy has been a gun control proponent, siding with people like Diane Feinstein in banning guns from California streets, in direct violation of the 2nd amendment. Turns out, when not in office, he was getting hundreds of thousands in kickbacks from an illegal GUN RUNNING OPERATION. WTF? Dickless here was allegedly selling rocket launchers to Muslim separatist groups in the Philippines as well as taking millions in bribes over the last decade. If anyone ever deserved the death penalty more, I can't come up with one. I would exchange a child rapist for a life sentence just to get him in the chair that much faster. This guy was a real cock this week.

11)Chris Christie- But then came Christie. This guy had the gual to declare himself totally innocent of all charges even though his investigation failed to talk to any of the key players, have access to important information that only the authorities have right now and are not sharing or do anything that would actually exonerate him beyond his own words. Way to spend NJ taxpayer money on a whitewash that Stevie Wonder could see coming. Then to go and berate any reporter who dared to ask different, all the while still trying to set yourself up for the 2016 election, which he has zero chance at right now as even his own party has soured on him, takes some big brass cohunes. The most recent polls have him near the bottom. And as this scandal is far from over, still could slide even further. On the same day that all this happened, new pictures surfaced of Christie walking around NJ with every single person he has fired over this as the scandal was happening in real time on the GWB. Classic. So congratulation Christie you are indeed douchebag of the week.

For the umpteenth time this year, yet another major corporation has been found liable of criminal activity and instead of any executives facing jail time, we see a paltry fine and a tepid slap on the wrist. Bank of America has agreed to pay $9.5 billion in fines to settle lawsuits filed by FHFA on behalf of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. They claimed that BoA committed fraud to the tune of $57.5 billion dollars in residential mortgage backed securities. This flies in the face of the DOJ who say the ENTIRE fraud for ALL banks was only $95 million. This proves Eric Holder and the DOJ have purposefully and illegally misrepresented the total amount as there is no way BoA would be paying such a huge fine if it wasn't true. BoA has now paid over $50 billion in fines and lawyer related payments.

Isn't it terribly convenient that the DOJ has set a number for fraud WAY below what it really is while simultaneously avoiding any jail sentences for anyone committing crimes of theft to murder? Try any of this as an individual and you will see serious jail time, perhaps even the death penalty. If you are corporation however, you are exempt from such penalties even though the Supreme Court has ruled them the same right as people. If they are indeed people, then they should be prosecuted like people and not corporations but no AG has even attempted that yet mostly likely due to the fact that we officially no longer live in a free society.

The worst part is I cannot even just blame the Republicans, who do have their fat little fingers in the pie, but Obama for allowing the DOJ to behave like the Gestapo and ignore laws they should be prosecuting. The DOJ has allowed Toyota to escape criminal charges this past week for literally knowing that their product was killing people and no issuing a recall. Duke Energy was writing the laws for environmental protections that led to a huge disaster. Freedom Enterprises poisoned the local water supply and instead of being met with an angry mob, has continued to exist beyond all rhyme or reason. Have we become so stupid a people that we can no longer see the danger staring us in the fact anymore? The fact that some of you are still voting for Republicans say we have passed that milestone and are now swimming out into open waters.

Now it's not just Republicans killing us, but some democrats as well. Obama is one step away from being the last black president for a while, because I have a feeling people are going to start burning him in effigy when the economy starts to slide hard, which all signs point to. Housing has fallen for the eighth straight month which is not due to "bad weather," as we keep being told by our worthless media. Anyone who watches the news, see if anyone notices the vast discrepancy between what BoA paid and what the DOJ alleges. I am willing to bet, not one newspaper or TV station notices it, just here which is why my readers are smarter than 99% of the population. Likewise, no one is talking about the housing market starting to slide as investors have started to drop out of the market due to rising prices, which has seen a 7% increase lately. As no one has any money and talk of a raise is seen as communism to the right, the economy is going to crash and crash hard soon. Chances are near 100% of a major market correction this year, which if it occurs in September could result in a huge increase in Republican seats, perhaps even enough to overcome an Obama veto and then we are all screwed because everything the GOP will try will only make things worse.

The long and the short of this is the United States appears to be toast because no one wanted to stand up authority, like I do here, and say ENOUGH! OWS failed. The Tea Party is filled with lunatics. The reasonable of us have been quieted by a Soma taking populace more interested in Billy Dee Williams dancing badly on DWTS and Kim/Kanye's upcoming wedding to notice our house is on fire and the firefighters are not coming. If any of you out there like having a society in which electricity is available along for food and water better get off their lazy asses and start protesting in front of Congress and the White House like other countries have done. This time DON'T LEAVE until we get what we want: the resignation of the President, Congress and the Supreme Court with early elections to be held soon to get new blood in there. No more parties, just ideas. If we don't get rid of the fascists that have now officially taken over, there is not going to be a country left.

It was another banner day for mankind as police violence continues to rise exponentially, the younger generation continues to defy logic how they haven't all accidently killed themselves by now and because of rampant distrust of everything, no one believes a word coming out of the FBI or the Malaysian government's mouths anymore.

Let's start with the police. In a rare bit of good news, Illinois has decided to join the 21st century and has struck down an idiotic wiretapping law. In it, they made filming any police officer a crime for whatever reason they felt like. This led to a stunning level of corruption within the police force who had no reason to check their behavior and used it to put innocent people in jail. But the State Supreme Court there struck it down calling it unconstitutional. Here's hoping that anti-filming law in Idaho against farms goes the same way.

But recently, cops have gone a murder binge, killing several unarmed people for no apparent reason. After one case in which a homeless man was shot in the back, the cop reportedly yelled "Boo Ya." afterward. Classy. Charges are still pending but, as always, will probably get dropped. The FBI was cleared of killing a suspect, Ibragim Todashev, 27, whose story changed more times than any fact about Flight 370, no small feat. If your story changes more than once when a homicide occurs, and you are not a cop, you are going to trial. However, if you have a badge they give you a medal and hearty congratulations. I do not believe for one second anything that was said here. If you read the transcript of what they said happened I swear they contradict themselves in the same paragraph. "It was knife, no wait it was a gun, no it was nothing, no it was a broomstick, or maybe a metal pole. Either way, I had to shoot him," was the general gist of it. Our DOJ sucks.

Generation Wuss continues to defy explanation as to why they are not protesting in the street over tuition costs, lack of good jobs, women's reproductive rights being taken away bit by bit and a general loss of self respect. Instead, everyone today seems more attuned to their smart phone rather than the destruction going on all around them. I watched a video today taken at American University in which almost none of the students could name ONE US senator, or even how many US senators each state has. Even worse, a majority of those that could answer not one of the questions were women. If you ever wanted to know why Republicans keep wining elections it's because mouthbreathers like this do not vote and then bitch when everything comes tumbling down. The fact that these idiots were even in college was even sadder. I could name both my Senators since I was six years old. Listening to Frieda Fashionista spout off about her Gucci purse is much more maddening. Young people better wake up and start realizing they are selling themselves down the river if they don't get more active in politics. If I hear one more ditzy bitch say she "doesn't like politics," I am going to vomit blood. Fine don't vote but don't be surprised when the GOP turns back the clock and makes you barefoot and pregnant and that's it. College will be a thing of the past for many, men and women, at this rate and considering how brainless they seem now, maybe that isn't such a bad thing.

Flight 370 is still missing and thanks to the fact that nothing we are told about turns out to be true, conspiracy theories about this will last forever. It's Osama Bin Laden all over again. I'll admit, I expected him to have been dead since 2002. But then, allegedly, Seal Team Six killed him in Pakistan years later. The problem with this is, no proof was ever offered, so even I have to have some skepticism that it was all a lie, mainly because the US government lies on a daily basis. As I have zero faith in them, I have to accept the fact that this may be yet another lie. Now mind you, I think what they said happened, did indeed happen that way, but because they have been so deceitful and conniving, I cannot say with any degree of certainty that there wasn't a cover up.

This is why Flight 370 is going to have the same issues. It doesn't matter if video surfaces of the plane crashing into the ocean, a suicide note form the pilot is found and wreckage is brought up from the depths, some will still question the official theory. Right now, it seems the most likely explanation is the older pilot killed everyone on board, in a real dick move, flew the plane until it ran out of fuel and then ditched it in the ocean. I would like to point out that of the three suspected suicides done by pilots, all three were Muslim. That is not a settling matter. But some will cling to whatever theory they come up with because the authorities have ruined any credibility by giving out false facts. The best way to ruin a society is to constantly lie until your public no longer listens or cares. Malaysia may learn that the hard way in the coming weeks.

All signs point to a major problem down the horizon and if the GOP wins back the Senate, which has a 60% chance right now, things are not going to get any better. If you don't start getting interested in politics now, things could take a drastic turn for the worse. Stop voting for Republicans and start voting in primaries to eliminate democratic corporatists. We need more people like Liz Warren and Bernie Saunders. We can make a difference this November but only if lazy democrats get off their ass and vote. The alternative is a coming theological fascism that few will like living under.

Nate Silver has recently said that the Senate is likely to go Republican this year, a fact while I am in agreement of, also find completely insane. If anyone out there can articulately explain why anyone would ever vote for the GOP please place a comment below because I sure as hell can't find one. The best recruit right now for the GOP has been Obama's unbelievable resistance to any proposal that even has a whiff of leftism, to which the right calls him a socialist, Marxist Muslim from Kenya. Obama could not be more to the right if he tried which has disillusioned his base, put the democrats on a suicide run come November, and emboldened the crazies to make outlandishly untrue statements about the Commander in Chief that borders on racism.

I will give Obama some faint praise for ratcheting up matters on Ukraine, for which the left is completely in the dark about, victims of the country that called wolf one too many times. We have not had a reason for war in decades, perhaps all the way back to WW2. Korea was iffy at best, Vietnam was based on the sham that was the Gulf Of Tonkin, and both Gulf Wars were based on faulty intel. The first war said babies were being taken out of Kuwaiti hospitals and burned alive which turned out to be so not true. The second said WMD's were about to be used against Western targets which also not true. Now we have the whole Ukraine matter which the left is saying stay out of. But for very good reasons we shouldn't and cannot, lest the entire world see America as a true paper tiger.

Let me give you an example form my own life. I was raised Roman Catholic. The Bible said to turn the other cheek and never fight back. Sounds good on paper but in real life, this turns you into a literal punching bag. So I learned martial arts instead, beat the holy hell out of the next person that tried something and I never had a fight again throughout high school. That is the real way of life. Force is sometimes the only way to make someone back down. And Ukraine is that to a T.

Most people don't realize that the US, UK and Russia all signed a treaty years ago letting Ukraine know that if they got rid of all of their nuclear weapons, all parties would respect their borders. Guess who violated that treaty recently? What this means is that getting ANY country to stop nuclear programs will never work as our treaties mean nothing on the larger scale now. Had Ukraine has nuclear weapons, Russia would never have invaded. North Korea and Pakistan are still standing because they have nuclear weapons. The ultimate message for this now is that unless you have nuclear weapons, your borders are not safe no matter what reassurances you get from any larger nations. You might as well write it on toilet paper. Putin's actions have damned the world as nuclear proliferation is going to happen regardless of what we do which also means, much sooner than later, some nutbag is going to get into some third rate country with nukes and be mad enough to use them.

Unless we stand up to Russia right now and let them know in no uncertain terms that is not to be accepted, the world will end. That is not hyperbole but a fact. If too many nations start a nuke program, as many are likely to do now, they will get used at some point and that could start an all out nuclear war between everyone. Ukraine doesn't sound so insignificant now does it?

The worst part is due to the greed of the money junkies, we have little we can do against Russia as they hold all the cards. They still possess a great deal of US debt and there have been rumors of back door deals with China to remove the petro-dollar as the world's currency. If they succeed, the US will become a third world nation overnight, with riots, hyperinflation and, most likely, martial law. If this occurs before November the GOP could win in record numbers with enough people to change US law regardless of the President's veto. Say goodbye to your freedoms then because this country will become defacto fascist at that point, which is exactly what the Koch brothers want as they would wield all the power.

The Supreme Court is going to rule soon is unlimited donations to candidates is allowable, and if upheld, will turn candidates into billionaire puppets. The destruction of the US will be complete then.

We also found today that according to the Malaysian PM, Flight 370 crashed somewhere into the Indian Ocean. The sad part is, while he may be right, I don't believe him. The reason being is that everything said so far by this government has been contradicted down the road by someone else. They have offered no proof of why they think this, furthering my doubt that this anything more than a way to offer some sort of closure, even though they really have no idea what really happened. Until concrete proof arrives, I will hold my judgment. That being said, I still think it is just as likely the pilot committed suicide as a hijacking, but without proof, it's all guess work and call me stupid, but the word of a guy whose government has lied, lied, and lied some more, I need more than this to call it a suicide yet. There is also the possibility that this will get some sort of TWA 800 explanation that defies logic. Time will tell.

All of this suggests that we live in a time where nothing can be believed, everything is unreal and even basic facts like evolution and the age of the Earth are being debated. We certainly do live in interesting times don't we?

How this douche still has a fucking job is beyond me. Any other person at any other job would have been fired years ago but Holder keeps on going like some deranged Energizer bunny. His DOJ was on fire this week with several rulings that reek of cover-ups and collusion with big business that truly show who runs things in this ever growing fascist state. Let's those runner ups in another sad week of douchebaggery.

1)WTC security- This week a 16 year old teen climbed all the way to the top of the new WTC building without ever being spotted by any security, supposedly the strictest on Earth. Might want to recheck your strategy because if a teen with no help from anyone can get to the top of the world, your security sucks. One guard was fired over this. At least in this instance, some one was held accountable which never happens anywhere else it seems.

2)Malaysia- These guys are some of the most inept people in charge of anything anywhere. Their news briefings have been laughable, they contradict almost any piece of information given out and this week hit a new low after one anguished mother slipped past the security holding the families hostage to speak with reporters before being dragged away by security forces. Not a good image for the ruling party. Families are starting to revolt for being treated like prisoners and not kept in the loop about anything. I have a feeling in the next election, these guys are all going to get thrown out on their ear. Still no word about missing flight 370 either, but suicide or hijacking are the only two explanations that fit. Another idiotic theory about lithium batteries exploding has sprung up which with current data is still not possible no matter how the press spins it. Logic is dead in the world and this case proves it.

3)Fred Phelps-  The founder of the despised Westborough Baptist Church died this week meaning he is most likely in a much warmer climate. Enjoy hell you bigoted bastard. As the church still continues on with your equally deranged offspring and moronic followers, save some room for them next.

4)Susanne Atanus- Proving once again that Republicans would vote for Hitler if he was on the ballot, this week, Atanus won the primary for the 9th district in Illinois, horrifying the GOP who wants nothing to do with this person. Why you ask? Because she is a raving loon who has ZERO chance of winning come November. According to Atanus, same sex marriage, abortion and civil unions are the reason for climate change, autism and dementia. She actually said that. The democratic incumbent can pretty much take the rest of the year off, because this woman is a walking poster board of who not to vote for. By the way anyone actually voting for this horrid woman should be put to death themselves for being too stupid to live.

5)Russia- Putin thinks it's 1939 all over again as Crimea was illegally annexed by Russia this week. And for all of you out there, including the press, who say it was voted on and passed, only a portion of the country voted on it. The ENTIRE nation gets a say, which they didn't, in violation of several international laws. It's the same here as if Northern California voted to leave the country without anyone else in the country getting a vote in it. A happy slap fight has emerged between Russia and Obama as tit for tat sanctions with little bite have been placed on both sides. This could still emerge as a war if Russia starts grabbing more land, something that hasn't been done there since the 1940's. This needs to be watched closely.

6)Syria- For some unknown, insane reason, a Syrian jet flew into Turkish territory and when it refused to turn back, was shot down. Turkey has let Syria know they will punish any more cross border assaults. Swell.

7)Hezbollah- After an attack on Israeli soldiers on the Syrian border and firing rockets from the Gaza strip into Israeli, they got hammered by several missile strikes that did a hell of a lot more damage to them then they did to their enemies. Syria is ratcheting up the tensions on ALL of its borders lately and are using Hezbollah as a proxy weapon. Another place where things could get ugly fast.

8)The economy- All signs point to a major bust soon of the economy perhaps as soon as mid-April. Several economists say there is almost a 100% chance of a stock market nose dive this year as there hasn't been a major correction in over two years now, which has never happened before. But when you rig the stock market, as leaked NSA documents suggest, this is what happens. Unemployment is still around 25%, inflation around 11% and none of that is being mentioned by the government or media who continue to use falsified data. New research says that if you are out of work for longer than six months, which is going to be about 75% of anyone looking for a job, your chances of finding a good job after that drop to 11%. That's sucks. Our economy will not continue much longer like this as the housing market looks to be collapsing again as investors are dropping out of the market now that prices have begun to skyrocket in places like Seattle, New York City and San Francisco. Meanwhile, Detroit, Memphis and other depressed areas are getting hammered with foreclosures going way up in these areas for incredibly cheap homes. We did nothing to fix any of the problems, thanks in part to a Republican party who could not have cared less and an Oligarchy not willing to part with one red cent. We are so screwed.

9)Barack Obama- While he has gotten slightly better addressing the whole Russia thing, it's still baby steps for a serious problem. The best thing he did was drop Russia from the G-8 which is now the G-7, a smart move. And while he is light years ahead of the Republicans who want to start WW3, he also has to be a lot tougher than he is being. Obama, if you are reading this, grow a pair. Be like JFK already and stop channeling Jimmy Carter as that didn't turn out good for anyone.

10)Republicans- As usual, they have accomplished little while screaming about nothing. Rush Limbaugh tore apart an idea for a museum dedicated to woman's achievements saying they already have such a place, "it's called a mall." How are women not lynching this fat bastard from the nearest light pole? How is he still on the air spreading this kind of hateful garbage? For God's sake people, I know it's hard work but can we please stand up for something like getting this ass out of media once and for all. John McCain is still foaming at the mouth to attack Russia. GOP voters put yet another unqualified person on the ballot in Illinois, damming any chance of winning there. Why is anyone still voting for this party that has told you they want you dead?

11)DOJ- I have to go back to days of Jimmy Carter to come up with an Attorney General that wasn't a total scumbag. Is this job that hard to fill that we keep getting loser and loser after loser? The latest to hold court is Eric Holder, who could quite possibly be the worst Attorney General of all time. When you are following Alberto Gonzales, John Ashcroft and Janet Reno and beat them handily, you are a disgusting human being. First, they drastically altered the amount of mortgage fraud banks had stolen from one billion dollars to $95 million. They blamed over zealous prosecutors but more research suggests a much darker reason. We know that the DOJ put mortgage fraud dead last on things to prosecute. Leaked documents from Wells Fargo demonstrated a wide problem of training people how to falsify documents, which according to the DOJ, is business as usual as no charges have been filed nor are they likely to. Then, they released a report that cleared the FBI in the shooting death of a boxer from Chechnya who may or may not have had ties to the Boston Bombers. The story started off as he had a knife, then a gun, then a metal pole, then he was unarmed before the lone officer had to shoot. Nevermind the fact the FBI rules state that TWO people should be interviewing someone in their own home at all times, which did not happen here. The story was all over the place and it really sounded like they were trying to railroad this guy when something went wrong. But its all moot as the DOJ cleared the shooter who said he was attacked by a metal pole. Sure, whatever. Lastly, and most importantly, the DOJ has given all corporations the ability to kill whoever they want with no criminal repercussions. Toyota was fined a paltry $1.8 billion dollars for knowingly selling cars that could kill you with no criminal charges filed. GM is facing similar charges and we all know how this is going to wind up. So congratulations Eric Holder and the DOJ you are indeed douchebag of the week.

This week incompetence has risen to epic levels. We still can't locate Flight 370, not because of lack of trying, but because everyone involved seems to have the attention span of an infant. Obama is racking up so many mistakes at this point he should just as well switch parties and declare himself a Tea Party Republican. The Republicans have done equally bad, nominating people in various states that they now have no chance of winning while telling poor people it's all their fault for being poor. What a bunch of buffoons.

Let's start with the mystery at hand. Flight 370 is still gone and due to some rank stupidity, we haven't even been looking in the right place. Conspiracy theories abound, from Courtney Love declaring she has found the wreckage using Google Earth (please!) to photoshop gone wild as some people have way too much time on their hand.

The dumbest theory so far came from Wired magazine which, if their offices were closer, I would find the author just to bitch slap him after having read his idiotic theory. Chris Goodfellow, who could quite possibly be the stupidest man on the face of the Earth, wrote this article:

Notice that this was written yesterday, meaning Goodfellow couldn't be bothered to, I don't know, read ANYTHING about the subject before mouthing off in what can only be described as an assault on the English language and logic abound. If there was a fire, as he so "expertly" theorizes, pilots would have had plenty of time to let air traffic control know. Plus, no fire would burn for seven hours with everyone dead on board and not plunge into the sea. This "startlingly simple answer" is only so if you are mentally challenged and cannot even piece together a logic puzzle so easy, my five year nephew could follow it. Every bit of reasoning he has in this piece is so not possible, I am amazed the editor was dumb enough to publish it.

There are only two explanations that fit the data we know. Either one of the pilots committed suicide and did so by heading deep into the Indian Ocean toward Antarctica, possibly to mask the fact it was suicide, or the plane was hijacked by persons unknown. As twenty electronic experts were on board, not to mention the fact the plane is worth almost $300 million, money could be the ultimate reason. North Korea could have done it for the expertise these hostages would be able to provide. Anyone seeing any connection to semiconductor patents can throw it out as that rumor has been thoroughly debunked however.

Terrorism is still the ultimate reason for the hijacking and could be used in a coordinated attack using this as a massive dirty bomb while car bombs are exploded in major cities world wide. The end result in that scenario is the death of billions of Muslims world wide as people will lose their minds and kill anyone who even they suspect is Muslim on sight. This is a worst case outlook, but one that is not entirely impossible.

While this debacle continues due to the Malaysian governments complete inability to give out solid facts, many families are ready to rip them apart. If that ever happened here, the authorities would be forced to stand behind bullet proof glass to protect themselves from the wrath of the bereaved. That may be happening soon as people are at wits end with the level of incompetence they are demonstrating.

It's not much better at home. Obama is proving to be an albatross around the Democrats necks as his popularity continues to plummet due to the fact he cannot seem to understand that things are falling apart, he is partially to blame and no one wants to fix anything. His answer to rising health care costs, which are indeed skyrocketing right now, is for people not to have cable or a cell phone which in today's society is not really possible unless sitting around in the dark is your idea of fun. How about price limits of what hospitals can charge to start? Of setting a maximum wage for hospital CEO's to collect as they are the highest paid in the country and those costs are being passed on to us? Instead we get lousy, still not working websites, which just got CGI fired here in MA and RI, but which makes me wonder why they were not fired month ago. MA has the WORST website in the entire country, and having tried to use it last week, still can't get by the first page. This is inexcusable and how come CGI isn't being sued back to the stone age by now? They should be a smoldering hole in the ground by now.

Add to this the fact that either the DOJ is covering up for banks in the whole montage fraud debate  or they wildly overestimated the amount of fraud perpetrated. I lean heavily toward the former as for the past five years, the DOJ put mortgage fraud dead last on priorities. Either war, the amount stolen went from one billion dollars to $95 million, which is the equivalent of mistaking a quarter for a trillion dollars. How dumb does Obama think I am?

The Republicans meanwhile continue to spread death and destruction in their wake, like facing criminal charges in NC due to the cozy relationship between the Governor and Duke Energy. Paul Ryan called black people "lazy good for nothings" and then said he was misquoted, which he wasn't. The best was a woman in Illinois who just won the GOP primary for a house seat who believes God controls the weather and climate change is caused because of gay people and abortion. Guess who won't be losing their seat in Illinois come November? This is the only way the democrats keep the Senate and maybe even recapture the House is if the GOP keeps nominating losers like this.

I have been forgiving of Obama in many ways that I probably shouldn't. Fast and Furious, his inability to use pot legalization as a wedge issue versus the Republicans, or any numerous other examples of Obama kowtowing to corporate interests. But with todays inexcusably, unintentionally hilarious sanctions on very specific Russians and Ukrainians, he has officially crossed the Rubicon into Jimmy Carter territory. 

Now unlike the Republicans who have advised every wrong idea on the book by almost guaranteeing a nuclear war with Russia, Obama has gone the opposite route and done absolutely nothing of any consequence short of a tepid slap on the wrist. John Kerry is proving to be ever bit the washout at Secretary of State I expected him to be, but at least it got him out of the Senate where he was equally worthless, and from my state nonetheless.

All this week, all we heard from the White House and Kerry is that if Crimea was annexed by Russia, severe penalties would follow. Instead what we got was a watered down bit of nothing that resulted in travel bans and bank freezes for 11 individuals, none of which have any Western assets to begin with. OHHHHHH, that'll teach them. The deputy prime minister, Dmitry Rogozin, laughed at the sanctions and then asked "if some prankster came with the list." Ouch, burned by the Russians. That's gotta hurt.

This is from ABC news:

Rogozin, a friend of actor Steven Seagal,  took to Twitter to tweak Obama, tweeting  he thinks “some prankster” came up with the sanctions list.

In a later tweet addressed to “Comrade @BarackObama,” he asked, “what should those do who have neither accounts nor property abroad? Or U didn’t think about it?”

Another Russian on the sanctions list, Vladislav Surkov, also seemed unconcerned.

Surkov,  a top Putin ideologue often called the Kremlin’s grey cardinal, reportedly told a Russian newspaper, “It’s a big honor for me. I don’t have accounts abroad. The only things that interest me in the U.S. are Tupac Shakur, Allen Ginsberg, and Jackson Pollock. I don’t need a visa to access their work. I lose nothing.”

Russia responded by announcing sanctions of their own on US congress people including, most likely, Senators Dick Durbin. John McCain and Robert Menendez. If they really want to get another poke at the US, when the list comes out as early as tomorrow they should add names like Ronald McDonald, The Easter Bunny and a random five year old from Des Moines to punctuate the stupidity of what the US has done.

With Russian invasion of Eastern Ukraine looking more and more likely, Obama better get on his big boy pants, start channeling JFK over Carter and GROW A PAIR! Look, threatening Russia with war, like the Republicans are doing, is equally stupid. But there are steps that have to be taken immediately to stop Russian aggression, even if it means a new cold war.

NATO needs to be put on alert, start massing your own troops and equipment on the Ukrainian borders, and tell Putin in no uncertain terms that this is a red line not to be crossed, and this time, mean it. You got a free pass on your Syrian red line debacle, but not again. Immediately revive the missile defense shield for countries like Poland and the Czech Republic. Start delivering weapons to Ukraine should any more of the country be illegally annexed. And it is illegal, because much like this country, a state cannot automatically secede without the permission of the country in whole. It's why the Civil War started here and also why northern California cannot just leave to make their own state no matter how much they wish it. Also, start moving NATO advisors and training staff into the area which means if they get attacked, its an act of war on all of NATO and no Russian ever has been willing to go that far. Even Khrushchev blinked at that.

Further steps should be the immediate expulsion of Russia from the G8 and perhaps even the UN. Gas imports from Russia and all exports to Russia should be immediately stopped. I am sure there are ways around people not freezing to death, but would cost corporations lots and that is ultimately why nothing to happening. There are no countries anymore, just multinationals. So instead of standing up to tyranny, we and the rest of the world will turn a blind eye and try to keep everything status quo. But that is an impossibility and sooner or later, everything will fall apart. And when that time comes, Obama may be ultimately responsible. The time for corporatists in charge must end. It's why I do not want Hillary Clinton in 2016 but would rather Bernie Sanders or Liz Warren run instead. But the political machine will almost certainly not let that happen and instead, no matter if a democrat or republican win, the end result will be almost the same.
