American Heart Association President Suffers Heart Attack Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 14:43:56 Id: c92e10 [Preview] No. 3146 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
American Heart Association President John Warner was away from the AHA’s Scientific Sessions with his family Monday after having a minor heart attack during the organization’s flagship scientific conference.

Warner, a practicing cardiologist and the CEO of UT Southwestern University Hospitals in Dallas, had the episode Monday morning. He was taken to a local hospital, where doctors inserted a stent to open a clogged artery.

He was recovering and visiting with his wife, son and daughter, all of whom attended the Scientific Sessions meeting in part to see him deliver his Presidential Address on Sunday afternoon. In that speech, the 52-year-old Warner talked about the effects of heart disease on his family. He mentioned how both his father and his father’s father had heart bypass surgery in their 60s. He also lost his maternal grandfather and a great grandfather to heart disease.

“Earlier in my talk, I told you there were no old men in my family. I know this is also true in far too many other families, not just in the U.S., but around the world. I believe the people in this room have the power – and even the duty – to change that. Together, we can make sure old men and old women are regulars at family reunions. … In other words, I look forward to a future where people have the exact opposite experience of my family, that children grow up surrounded by so many healthy, beloved, elderly relatives that they couldn’t imagine life any other way.”

Biggest contributer to heart disease, being obese and bad blood pressure is pork. Not beef - although the mass produced beef is pretty awful considering its full of GMOs, hormones, nitrites and other additives and preservatives. So anything that is in the major chain stores or fast food pickups be aware the meat is crap over there.

My parents always said to me "you are what you eat." That's actually true. And I've learned that from experience when I was younger. If you eat crap, your body is going to feel like crap. Just think of it like a car fueled by gas. If you put bad gas or the wrong type of gas in your tank your car won't run right and might end up breaking down. Same thing with the human body only with food.

If you routinely eat organic fruits, vegetables and grass-fed cow (beef with no GMOs, hormones or additives) then you won't be having serious health problems. If you eat junk food, fast foods and sugary snacks all day (that includes soda) then you'll get fat, grow pimples, have bad blood pressure, digestive problems and overall feel like shit. Might even get onset diabetes or cancer.

That's why I laugh a lot when so-called "experts" like this guy claim they know everything about health and they end up getting heart attacks or strokes. They think they can eat whatever they want without any consequences to their health. Just doesn't work that way.

WikiLeaks Told Trump Jr. Seth Rich Was DNC Leaker Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 16:14:28 Id: 6f1bb9 [Preview] No. 3148 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Julian Assange confirmed to Donald Trump Jr. that Seth Rich was the person who leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

In a direct message conversation between Trump Jr. and WikiLeaks – Assange points Trump to a website with a header that states: “My Name Was Seth Rich.”

“Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us,” WikiLeaks said in the conversation, directing Trump to visit “wlsearch.tk.”

Here is the entire chain of messages with @wikileaks (with my whopping 3 responses) which one of the congressional committees has chosen to selectively leak. How ironic! 1/3 pic.twitter.com/SiwTqWtykA

— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) November 14, 2017


When you click on the side menu, the only option is a category titled “Seth Rich.” The link takes users to a page that reads, “You finally found me! I’m the source of the John Podesta/DNC Email hacks. I’ve been waiting so long for you to join me.”

The message makes it clear that the site has been edited since the conversation by referring to the exchange with Trump Jr. It is unclear if the site was hacked or if it was deliberately edited by someone associated with WikiLeaks.

“Thanks to Wikileaks and Trump Jr you’ll all soon know why Hillary Clinton and John Podesta had me killed,” the website reads. “As you can see I’m no Russian agent. I was just a proud DNC staffer who believed in the system until I found out Hillary Clinton and the DNC rigged the primaries against my candidate Bernie Sanders. That’s when I decided to take action and release these emails to Wikileaks.”

It's evidence the Trump campaign was willing to collude with Russia for dirt on Hillary. He even signed into the website wikileaks set up.

Funny how he refused to give the tax returns of his father to wikileaks when asked, and Trump remains the only president not to have gone transparent about his finances. Bet half of what he wants to hide are Russian contracts.

That would be collusion with Wikileaks, not Russia. But I'm sure they'll just paint that as a Russian asset and go from there. Then they would need to know if Trump knew about his son doing this and if he allowed that to continue to advantage his campaign.

Trump Picks Drug Industry Bandit For HHS Secretary Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 17:26:22 Id: 4293de [Preview] No. 3151 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Trump’s choice for Health and Human Services director is corporate predator Alex Azar - former president of Lilly USA LLC, Eli Lilly’s largest affiliate company.

In 2012, he headed Lilly’s US operations, was also involved in its international and government affairs work.

Earlier he was GW Bush’s deputy HHS secretary. In 1991, he earned a law degree from Yale, clerked for an appeals court justice, then Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia from 1992 - 1993.

During Ken Starr’s Whitewater investigation, he served in his Office of the Independent Counsel. He practiced law for Washington-based Wiley, Rein and Fielding until 2001, becoming a partner in the firm.

From 2001 - 2005, he was HHS general counsel - for two more years in the department as deputy HHS secretary in an administrative capacity - supervising operations for food and drugs, Medicare, Medicaid, medical research, public health, welfare, child and family services, disease prevention, Indian health, mental health services, emergency preparedness and response.

The FDA, Medicare and Medicaid Services, National Institutes of Health, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported to him.

He was a member of various administration agencies, including the White House Homeland Security Council and National Economic Council.

He serves on various corporate and other boards. On November 13, Trump nominated him to head HHS. He requires Senate confirmation - rubber-stamp given his background.

The agency is responsible for “(i)mproving the health, safety and well-being of Americans.” Yet Azar isn’t an MD, has layman medical knowledge only.

Its aim is shifting the burden of increasingly expensive healthcare onto the backs of millions of Americans unable to afford a fundamental human right - including gutting Medicaid over the next decade.

If enacted, America’s poor, elderly, disabled, and others with preexisting conditions will be grievously harmed most - a majority of US citizens.

Privatizing Medicare comes next, along with Social Security, transforming both vital programs into profit centers for Wall Street and other corporate predators.

Obamacare was written by corporate lobbyists, representing healthcare industry interests. The same goes for Trumpcare, eliminating the best of Obamacare, the worst of it on steroids.

Political analyst Stephen Wolf earlier tweeted: “Trumpcare doesn’t just repeal Obamacare. It repeals the last 52 years of advances in healthcare policy.”

Its a dagger plunged into the heart of Great Society programs, wanting them gutted to enrich wealthy Americans at the expense of most others.

The world’s richest country is on the brink of thumbing its nose at its most needy - more than ever since establishment of New Deal, Fair Deal and Great Society programs.

Today’s America isn’t the one I grew up in long ago, a better time. Opportunities afforded me no longer exist for most people.

Former Joe Biden Secret Service Agent: We Had to Protect Women From Him, “Weinstein Level Stuff” Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 17:07:36 Id: be087d [Preview] No. 3150 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A former Secret Service agent assigned to the Vice President Joe Biden residence claims that the Service often had to protect female agents from him.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the agent asserted that, “We had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President’s house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend’s asses.” The annual party was for agents and Navy personnel who were tasked with protecting the Biden family.

“He would mess with every single woman or teen. It was horrible,” the agent said.

According to the source, a Secret Service agent once got suspended for a week in 2009 for shoving Biden after he cupped his girlfriend’s breast while the couple was taking a photo with him. The situation got so heated, the source told Cassandra Fairbanks, that others had to step in to prevent the agent from hitting the then-Vice President.

Additionally, the agent claims that Biden would walk around the VP residence naked at night. “I mean, Stark naked… Weinstein level stuff,” he added.

He said that the men on duty would frequently stand in front of female agents and Navy women that were present “like a damn guardian.” On some occasions, they would make up reasons to get the women away from where he was.

The agent said he was specifically concerned about women in the Navy.

“They weren’t allowed to disobey him at all, but we’d take them away under pretend auspices,” the agent stated.

Best-selling author Ronald Kessler wrote about Biden’s problem with female agents in his book The First Family Detail.

Media Blackout: Millions Of Spanish Protest Fascist Government Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 16:12:10 Id: 521dc4 [Preview] No. 3147 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Millions of Spanish citizens have taken to the streets in Spain to protest the fascist move by the government to ignore the will of the people of Catalan.

The unprecedented protest, which has been completely ignored by the mainstream media, demands that the Spanish government immediately release the Catalan political prisoners and recognise the will of the Catalonian people.

“Look at all the people here! The independence movement is still going strong,” Pep Morales, a 63-year-old independence protester told reporters as he called for the release of Catalan’s leaders from prison.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: As a report from The Guardian noted in October, the Spanish government “took control of Catalonia, dissolved its parliament and announced new elections after secessionist Catalan MPs voted to establish an independent republic.” Then in November, a judge ordered eight members of the deposed Catalan government to be arrested pending charges for their involvement in the declaration of independence.

The blatant and ongoing corruption within Spain’s government has been both ignored and even justified by the mainstream media. As WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange noted, while the crowd of protesters reached nearly 1 million people, it was portrayed by the local media as an insignificant, regular protest.

“Watch this video of last night’s protest of around a million people calling for Spain to release Catalan political prisoners,” Assange wrote. “Then follow this link to see how this vast crowd was depicted on the front pages of Spain’s biggest ‘newspapers.’”

German Homeless Population Explodes In 2016 As Deliberate Destabilization Takes Its Toll Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 14:22:49 Id: 4836b9 [Preview] No. 3144 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
According to a recent estimate published by the Federal Association for Assistance for the Homeless, the number of homeless people living on Germany’s streets has risen by 33% in a matter of just a couple of years, to 52,000. Meanwhile, as The Local notes, the number of Germans who can't afford their own home and have been forced to rely on the generosity of family and friends for a place to sleep every night has also risen a staggering 26%, to over 400,000 people.

In 2016 an estimated 52,000 people were living on German streets, an increase of a third on the 39,000 people who were living rough in 2014.

The report also claims that the overall number of people in Germany who don’t have their own home has risen sharply, from 335,000 in 2014 to 422,000 last year.

Most of the people who don’t have their own homes live in collective accommodation or have to rely on the charity of partners or family.

Of course, German officials have offered up a wide range of potential explanations for the country's exploding homelessness crisis, with Thomas Specht, head of the Federal Association for Assistance for the Homeless, blaming restricted housing supply, rising rents and stagnant wages.

“The numbers presented today on homelessness are shocking,” said Ulrike Mascher, President of the VdK social association.

“In our view this proves that ever more people are unable to pay their rents because of low wages and over-indebtedness.”

Thomas Specht, head of the Federal Association for Assistance for the Homeless, said that rising rents were just one cause of the negative development.

He pointed out that since 1990 the number of council flats had dropped by 60 percent to 1.2 million, because local councils had sold off many properties to private investors.

Al Franken Throws Tantrum, Screaming For Government To Outlaw 1st Amendment, Free Speech Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 14:08:05 Id: 48505a [Preview] No. 3143 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Advancing the Democratic Party’s new-found McCarthyism over the theme of “Russian Collusion,” Sen. Al Franken authored an op-ed piece in the Guardian last week asking for government censorship over Internet media content giants Google, Facebook and Twitter.


Yet, in the face of this concrete evidence, Franken seems determined to continue beating the New McCarthyism narrative advanced by Hillary Clinton and her Democratic Party supporters to explain away her devastating 2016 loss to Donald Trump.

Franken argued Hillary’s loss demanded government censorship over social media on the Internet. He wrote the following:

"Last week’s hearings demonstrated that these companies may not be up to the challenge that they’ve created for themselves. In some instances, it seems that they’ve failed to take commonsense precautions to prevent the spread of propaganda, misinformation, and hate speech."

In advancing his argument for government censorship, Franken asked the following rhetorical questions:

"The platforms that big tech has designed may now be so large and unruly that we can’t trust the companies to get it right when they do start paying attention. If you have five million advertisers a month using your highly sophisticated, nearly instantaneous ad platform, can you ever really know who all of them are? Can you ever catch all the signals that would seem obvious to a pair of human eyes – for example, political ads that are paid for in rubles?"

Franken got immediate push-back from Michael Snyder, a Republican candidate for Congress in Idaho’s First Congressional District, who penned a rebuttal in EndOfTheAmericanDream.com.

America Last: Senate Committee Votes in Favor of Pro-Amnesty DHS Nominee Kristjen Nielsen Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 14:01:54 Id: 7b1e7a [Preview] No. 3142 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC) voted 11-4 to approve President Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen Tuesday, passing the avowedly pro-amnesty candidate on to a vote of the full Senate.

Voting in Neilsen’s favor were all eight Republicans on the panel, including “Gang of Eight” amnesty plot ringleader Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and “conservative Dream Act” amnesty proponent Sen. James Lankford. Joining them were red state Democrats Sens. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), John Tester (D-MT), and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND). The only four opposing votes were from liberal Democrats like Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI).

Neilsen, whom bestselling conservative author and columnist Ann Coulter called, “an open borders zealot,” is now only one successful vote away from overseeing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

As Breitbart News has reported throughout her confirmation process, Nielsen has a well-documented history of supporting amnesty, going so far as to tell HSGAC that America “owes” amnesty to the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens covered by President Barack Obama’s likely-unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, in her first confirmation hearing. Long-time immigration hawk Rep. Steve King (R-IA) tweeted that the remark “disqualified” Nielsen from leading DHS.

Nielsen’s history of opposing populist-nationalist immigration policy in favor of open borders globalism extends beyond America’s borders. Last year, she led a committee of the World Economic Forum, a pro-business interest group made up largely of multinational corporations in Davos, Switzerland. Her committee’s report, called “Global Agenda Council on Risk & Resilience,” recommended that Europe must accept the massive influx of third world migrants flooding the continent. “Change the narrative on refugees’ impact in host countries: Active steps should be taken to reframe the discourse on refugees from one of risk to one that also recognizes the substantial social and economic contribution they can make to their host societies,” the report urged.

Immigration restictionist groups were largely outraged by President Trump’s selection of Nielsen. By contrast, support for Nielsen’s nomination was high among the so-called “Never Trumpers” of the GOP’s legacy national security ranks. On learning Nielson would be prepped for her hearings by Bush-era official Thad Bingel, NumbersUSA’s Rosemary Jenks told Breitbart News, “We elected Trump. We did not elect a Bush. We specifically rejected the Bush dynasty. We don’t need a Bush Republican at DHS.”

Nielsen herself was a Bush administration staffer. She came to President Trump’s attention through White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. She now serves as his deputy and, before that, was his chief of staff at DHS.


Great Sovereign Nation of Poland: Breed Like Rabbits To Solve Declining Population, Reject Amnesty! Reader 11/09/2017 (Thu) 20:57:45 Id: f0385c [Preview] No. 2997 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Unlike the Islamic terror-ridden hellhole that is now Germany; with a leadership which believes mass migration from brutal third world countries is the only way to solve their demographic decline; Poland is encouraging couples to make their own citizens by ‘breeding like rabbits’, with the help of an educational video from the Polish health ministry.

Stopping short of a tutorial of baby making, the 30-second video put out by the National Health Programme opens with a field of rabbits and closes with a shot of a lovestruck couple enjoying a picnic, with a bunny seen popping out of a picnic basket.

“We rabbits know how to take care of our many offspring,” says the narrator, from the point of view of a rabbit, who then advises viewers to exercise, eat healthily, do not get stressed out, and “if you want to become a parent one day, take the example of rabbits”.

Poland’s “do it yourself” approach runs contrary to communistic fascistic progressive concepts disseminated by left-wing media despots, with Time magazine promoting the “child free” life, and National Geographic suggesting the “New Europeans”, who entered the continent during the 2015 migrant crisis, are the future of Europe.

The Ministry of Health website reads: “We want everyone… to be more aware of how their behaviour affects their health. The aim of the programme is to help Poles lead healthier lives (and make healthy choices) and be able to enjoy health and full wellbeing, participation in work, social and family life.”

The campaign comes after a similar initiative in Denmark, which aimed to counteract the increasing number of young couples remaining childless.

Poland, which rejects mass migration and the associated rise in crime, sexual assaults, terrorism, and integration problems witnessed in Western European countries, has seen its fertility rate fall from three children per woman in 1960 to 1.3 in 2015, according to World Bank figures.

Jim Willie, the economic analyst who long ago predicted the collapse of the US petrodollar standard, moved to Costa Rica. Don't know if that was a strategic move on his part but I'd follow what the ones who knew and warned about this stuff are doing today.

Well, if you're willing to learn the Polish language (do not recommend, immensely complex and full of bullshit, waste of time) and have a sizeable amount of savings, then you might enjoy it here. You'll only be able to get around Warsaw if all you know is English. No other city is as foreigner friendly.

In cities that aren't Warsaw you can get an OK apt for $20k, or rent for $150-$300 a mo depending on what you want. If you work for a few years in the US on the average salary, in theory you could comfortably live until the end of your days in a mid-sized Polish city. Granted, the average Pole who makes a living in the country has it shit, but it's a great country for western foreigners with (relatively) loads of money.

Though, you could as well move to Ukraine. The average pay there is 500 PLN/mo, so I guess that the rent and living costs in general are even cheaper there than in Poland. You might not like Ukraine though as it's basically an African country in the middle of Europe.

Other countries you guys suggested:
nope, forget it
doesn't seem like a good idea

Thanks for more clarification. BTW, how is Iceland or Panama not good choices? Is there something that we should know about these places that make them bad options?

Also, Austria may now be a safe bet considering citizens wrestled back some control from the EU. They are talking about declaring independence, withdrawing from the EU and possibly pivoting East (which unfortunately for many Western nations is where all future economic opportunities will be coming from if things continue the way they have been for the last 30+ years).

Panama is just as poor as Poland, if not poorer, bro. Iceland is full of Polish immigrants and is quite sparsely populated. You'll have a hard time getting a job there if you're not working in construction. Go for it if you really want to, but other options are better.

I don't know what the pay is in Iceland but construction is a pretty broad line of work. Road construction, building/skyscraper construction, residential construction, bridge construction, industrial construction... and depending on which ones some actually have decent pay and benefits in the US.

I've known a few who worked in residential construction (in the US) and they were able to afford a mortgage and feed their families. One still being a construction worker. I guess that all depends where you live though and what kind of construction work you do.

Gun-controlled California: Multiple Dead, Children Shot In School Shooting Reader 11/14/2017 (Tue) 20:07:39 Id: 446936 [Preview] No. 3127 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A reported shooting in northern California has left at least three people dead in Tehema County, California.

The Tehama County Sheriff’s Office says the shooting happened at an elementary school in Rancho Tehama around 8:00 am. local time. Rancho Tehama is about 115 miles north of the state capital of Sacramento.

A Corning Unified School district employee confirmed there were injuries at the school.

Police are investigating at least five crime scenes. At least 100 law enforcement officers have responded to the crime scenes.

Children have been moved from the school to a safe location.

A man spoke with KCRA’s affiliate Action News Now and said that his truck was stolen and his roommate was shot and killed by the gunman.

“He’s dead. He didn’t make it,” the witness said. “For his family and everything, I feel bad, and we’ll be there for them.”

“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines,” he added.

“This guy has been crazy, and he’s been threatening us and everything. I just feel like there maybe should have been more effort put into stopping things like this.”
