1. CONGRESSMAN WANTS 9/11 REPORT TO BE DECLASSIFIED

    Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) recently gained full access to the redacted 28-page Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry (JICI) report of 9/11, published in late 2002. What he saw shocked him, and he organized a press conference to discuss what he cannot discuss, as well as push for the report to be declassified.

    Rep. Massie’s response jibes with the International Business Times article that reported similar reactions by Reps. Walter B. Jones (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-MA) after they viewed the redacted pages.

    Various sources indicate that the declassified report would highlight the Saudi Arabia government’s involvement in the planning and funding of the 9/11 attacks.

    If true, there are plenty of additional questions to ask…

    There are a couple of reasons.

    1. She sat on the Walmart board for 6 years and then didn’t do anything when they waged war against the workers and their unions (X)

    2. She voted in favor of the Iraq war (X)

    3. She is into free trade agreements (even if she is formally against some of the policies, she still maintains that she supports the principles of them) (X)

    4. She supports a border fence in Israel and wholeheartedly believes Israel deserves “safety and security” (X)

    5. She supports performance based pay for public schools (X)

    6. She also believes charter schools help failing public schools (X)

    7. She wants to maintain US hegemony, increase the defense budget and she supports the death penalty (X)

    8. She said, “I am adamantly against illegal immigrants” and supported the border wall (X)

    9. She supported DOMA and thinks civil unions are good enough for “equal rights” (X) I’m not interested in marriage for us queers, but she is on the other side of the issue entirely saying that she is against marriage for same sex partners but is pro civil unions. The reason civil unions were created was to create a new way to oppress and otherize systematically. 

    10. She wants more police, vigil antes and harsher prison sentences (X)

    I’m sure there are more. But honestly she’s very moderate and I see her being really exciting for the young dems because she’s a woman but ultimately her policies will reflect those of the old white dudes (and obama bc his policies aren’t anything to praise either) that came before her.

  3. Currently, the World Health Organization is focused on saturated fat and sodium, and maybe added sugars, as the [main dietary] problems leading to chronic disease. It’s a really myopic set of priorities, as total fat is a useless focus. You can have a high-fat diet that’s healthy or a low-fat diet that’s unhealthy.

    "Cool," I said to myself since I almost always drink from glasses when I’m home.

    As you can tell from the photo, I don’t go to Shake Shack often. LOL, I can be so clueless at times…

    It will be a painful version of “game over” for the US if more companies and nations feel this way…

     


  14. WHAT YOU CAN LEARN ABOUT RACE RELATIONS FROM OPIE & ANTHONY’S CUMIA

    Be sure to read the link in my tweet for context. Anthony Cumia’s selfie-with-black-bestie was predictable. And so was this immediate response from presumably one of Cumia’s defenders:

    I’ve personally witnessed racial confrontations as a bystander or as a direct participant and I’ve only seen blacks as the victims in those instances. Still, I refuse to write off an entire race as “Savage violent animal f**ks.”

    Unlike Cumia…
