At large:  How to check on how lousy your bank really is 

The link is to Pam & Russ Martens' great site Wall Street On Parade where they discuss the new database at Warner's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that lets you see how many complaints your bank has been hit with.  

Felon Citibank -- 29,000 complaints. 
Felon Chase -- 37,000 complaints.

The following paragraph from the Martens's article might convince you to re-think your meme that the Bush administration was entirely responsible for the Great Recession.

"Under the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, banks holding insured deposits were not allowed to be affiliated with Wall Street investment banks and brokerage firms which have a storied history of stock frauds, abusing their customers, and blowing up. That protection was removed when President Bill Clinton signed into law the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act on November 12, 1999, the legislation that repealed the Glass-Steagall Act. After protecting the nation for 66 years, it took just 9 years after its repeal for Wall Street to implode, taking the U.S. economy with it."

Chicago, IL:  Appeal court dissects idiot judge Kathleen M. Pantle, 
upholds firing of dick cops 

In 2006 off-duty cop Brian Murphy pulled gun on Obed DeLeon, then Murphy and his buddies beat DeLeon and threw him in jail because (here it comes) DeLeon complained that the cops' Camaro was blocking a parking lot. Pantle, the judge riding the case against Murphy and his buddies, didn't see a problem with that. Maybe she's not too bright.

Oslo, Norway:  White Helmets nominated for Nobel 

The so-called White Helmets have been nominated for this year's Nobel Peace Prize. Anyone who knows the story behind the White Helmets will understand what a complete crock of shit this is. Anyone who doesn't know the back-story to the White Helmets needs to read Brandon Turbville's excellent article. 

Hint: they're actually terrorists.

Calgary, Alberta:  Will Canada shit-can clueless judge from South Africa who 
found rapist innocent after asking the accuser why she didn't 
just keep her knees together?  Sure hope so. 

Judge Robin Camp says he did not understand Canadian law on rape because he is from South Africa. This is a frickin' judge. He's paid to know the law so that he can apply it. And yet when these judges hammer the rest of us, the first thing they say is "ignorance of the law is no excuse."  Sick hypocrisy.  More

Portland, OR:  Brain-ded Bundys blasted
by Santa Monica Observer while
BLM blasted by Humane Society  

Earlier this year I drove to Burns, OR to check out the Malheur Wildlife Refuge where the Bundy Boys were holed up last January.  Later I stopped at the ambush site on US highway 395 where Lavoy Finicum was gunned down. Having analyzed the video of the ambush in second-to-second detail and having criticized Finicum's friend Victoria Sharp for lying about what happened, I wanted to see the place for myself.  Standing there looking at the small memorial that has been erected I couldn't help but think to myself: What a bunch of morons.  

And the reason I mention it is that this paragraph from the SM Observer article (linked to above) grabbed my attention:

Welfare ranchers are those who run their livestock on public lands at prices far below what they would have to pay to lease private lands. Less than 3% of ranchers hold all of the public lands leasing rights, and the majority of them are 1%ers, including the Koch brothers, Ted Turner, the Hilton family, Mary Hewlett-Jaffe (Hewlett-Packard), and the Robert Earl Holding family (Sinclair Oil and hotels).

The other thing that is interesting here is that according to the Bureau of Land Management as of Jan08|2016 "welfare ranchers" like the Bundys are grazing about 15,000 cattle and 1,000 horses/burros under leases or permits on BLM land. 

In order to make that sort of grazing economically viable, it's necessary to eliminate grazing-competitors, like wild horses and burros, which brings me to the Humane Society. They have just excoriated the BLM for it's new proposal to kill 45,000 wild horses currently in government holding facilities so that idiot welfare ranchers like Cliven Bundy can run their cows on the range.

What a bunch of morons.

Washington, D.C.:  Bibi gets more flak from Obama 

The world's most dangerous idiot is not Donald Trump, it's his buddy Bibbi Netahyahu. As Exhibit "A" in support of that allegation I present Bibi's latest rant on the Palestinians, whom the iJews are trying to exterminate and/or drive out of Palestine entirely.  Bibi says he is "perplexed" how anyone could think the wonderful peace-loving iJews are in any way an obstacle to peace. And he went on: the Palestinians' demand that the illegal iJew settlements in Palestinian territory be removed is "outrageous" and an attempt at "ethnic cleansing." Obama was not amused. 

To illustrate how risible and outrageous Bibi's rhetoric is, here are some headlines from just the last couple of days that contradict this toxic iJew's absurd assertions about "peace loving" Yisrael. It's these types of headlines most Americans who are stuck to the tube never see.
