We are confronted with the belief among some that bigger nations can bully smaller ones to get their way — that recycled maxim that might somehow makes right.

Barack Obama, non-ironically

Just… wow.

I am consistently amazed by the mind-blowing hubris of this man. As I once described him: he’s the peace president who loves war, the transparency candidate who’s denied more FOIA requests than anyone, the whistle-blower supporter who’s locked away Bradley Manning and hunts Edward Snowden, the social redistributionist who protects corporate interests, the champion of minority causes who deported more immigrants in his first three years than Bush in eight, the proud one-time marijuana smoker and cocaine user who keeps throwing peaceful drug users behind bars, the constitutional scholar who signed the NDAA, Patriot Act, ACTA, and the death warrants of Americans “tried” without due process… how can anyone still not see that he - doubling down on the impulses of essentially all politicians - will say and do whatever it takes for greater power and control.

I literally went though the same thing yesterday. Its a fucking nightmare.

ragemovement:

An Indiana police officer has kept his job after pushing over a man in a wheelchair – despite his entire department demanding he be fired.

Lafayette Police Department Lieutenant Tom Davidson can be seen on video, dated October 1st last year, shoving paraplegic Nicholas Kincade.

The assault appears to be prompted by Mr Kincade bumping Lt Davidson’s foot with his motorised wheelchair.

The incident occurred near the Excel School in Indianapolis, where police were called by school staff after Mr Kincade allegedly told them he had a gun in his backpack. Responding officers quickly found the man didn’t have a gun and he was told that he could leave with a trespassing warning, at the school’s request. According to Turnto23, Lt Davidson was put on leave during an investigation into his actions, but despite his department saying that he should be fired, the Lafayette Police Civil Service Commision – who vote on hiring and firing officers – instead ruled ‘unbecoming conduct’ and sentenced him to a 30-day unpaid suspension and a drop in rank. http://metro.co.uk/2014/07/05/police-officer-pushes-over-man-in-wheelchair-doesnt-get-fired-4787679/

Hillary Clinton praises Bush, criticizes Obama, cozies up to Wall Street

hipsterlibertarian:

From me at Speed Reads this morning:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, an expected contender in the 2016 presidential election, has positioned herself to appeal to more moderate or even neoconservative audiences in recent days. Speaking to CNN on Sunday, she praised President George W. Bush’s AIDS relief programs in Sub-Saharan Africa, saying his initiatives there make her “proud to be an American.”

In the same interview, Clinton distanced herself from President Obama’s foreign policy, suggesting that he has not made it clear how D.C. “intend[s] to lead and manage” international affairs. Clinton advocated a more interventionist approach, arguing that, "We have to go back out and sell ourselves" as guarantors of worldwide stability. Currently, the U.S. military has as many as 900 bases worldwide, and has ground troops or drones active in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Yemen.

Meanwhile, despite objections from supporters within her own party, Clinton has repeatedly spoken to audiences at large Wall Street banks like Goldman Sachs and Ameriprise Financial. “The problem is these speeches give the impression that she’s still in the Wall Street wing of the party,” said Charles Chamberlain of the left-wing Democracy For America PAC.

If Clinton is elected President in 2016, the White House will have been in the hands of just three families — the Bushes, Clintons, and Obamas — for 32 years by the time her first term is complete.

The war on “terror” will never be over, it will just change locations. Like the war on drugs, prostitution, pornography, and the many others that will follow, it is a war on humanity. These wars will never be won; the State will just keep creating new boogiemen to frighten us with. The sheep will anxiously anticipate the next fall guy the State offers up as a sacrifice for the war on whatever happens to be next. Be careful, the next pawn could be me or you.
