GENERAL WESLEY CLARK, Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, Breaks Down Terrorist & Mideast Countries Generalizations Into Specifics We Can All Understand. And Why Would Turkey, A Country With No Nukes of Its Own, Dare To Shoot Down Aircraft In Turkey’s Airspace Belonging To Russia, A Country With Oodles Of Nukes? If Mike Tyson Steps On Your Foot, Isn’t It Incumbent Upon You To Issue Apologies, Generally Speaking? That Is – Unless You Are Accompanied By A Brother, Who Is A Cop! Finally, Are You Too Young, Too Naïve, Too Stupid To Be Told By The MSM The Ramifications Of International Events? Is It NEWS, Or Is It PABLUM!

A search-and-rescue mission has been launched, but the fate of two ejected pilots is still unclear. Russia is claiming one of them is dead, and there are reports the other has been captured. Russia’s also saying one of its marines was killed in the rescue operation.
Moscow is furious! Russian President Putin called this “a stab in the back that will have serious consequences”.
Want to get right to CNN’s Barbara Starr at the Pentagon!
Barbara, what are U.S. officials telling you?
BARBARA STARR, CNN PENTAGON CORRESPONDENT: Well, John, they are monitoring those Russian reports that at least one of the Russian pilots is dead, but, clearly, Washington wanting this situation not to escalate out of control, trying to keep it calm, and one reason may be that right now, at this hour, the Pentagon cannot say for sure that the Russian plane was shot down inside Turkish airspace.
TABACCO: Don’t worry! CNN is attempting to frighten you! That Tactic is EXTREMELY GOOD FOR RATINGS!
Allow Tabacco to explain why this Shoot-Down is not as Dangerous for Turkey or the World as CNN would have us believe! Continue reading

NICK TURSE: Well, just this morning—you know, it’s not something I reported on, just something I’ve been following on the news—we see that Kenyan forces that we’ve been backing have set up extensive smuggling networks in Somalia. They seem to have been putting down roots themselves in bases. I noticed that one of them is Kismayo, where the U.S. is supposedly flying drones out of and has a special operations base. That’s now apparently a smuggling hub for the Kenyan military, in league with the terrorist group al-Shabab. They seem to be working in concert to smuggle sugar. There’s also been charcoal smuggling in the region. So—and this is a force that the U.S. has been backing. And yeah, the U.S. has funded the Kenyans so that we wouldn’t have large numbers of troops on the ground. Continue reading
OBAMA’S KILLER DRONE WAR FAILURES Exposed By 4-Former Air Force Drone Operators! Drone Operators Refer To Children On Their Screens As, “Fun-Sized Terrorists” & “Cutting The Grass Before It Grows Too Long” Just Before They Murder These Kids. Whistleblowers Risk Prosecution For Outing Drone Kills Of Innocent Civilians, Not Just The Targets. Those ‘Collateral Damages’ FUEL GROWTH OF TERROR! Why These Air Force Vets Want Drone War To Stop!

Soldiers Commit SUICIDE Only If They Believe They Have Just Cause – Obama Gives Muslim Terrorists ‘JUST CAUSE’! Terrorists Are NOT The Only Ones, Who Train Children To Commit Murder – America Does It Too – And In Your Name! Have We Forgotten My Lai? PTSD!

TABACCO: Because his middle name is ‘Hussein’, Republicans used to call President Obama a ‘Muslim’ – they call him that no longer. Even Opportunist Republicans realize that tactic is ridiculous. You might as well call Hitler a ‘Pacifist’! Together, Bush & Obama have murdered Million$ of Innocent Muslims in the name of ‘National Security’! If you believe that Excuse, you are equally as Guilty of the Genocide of God’s children.
JESSELYN RADACK: They’re taking an enormous and very brave public risk in speaking out. I have clients in the national security and intelligence communities, who have done nothing more than tell the truth about some of America’s darkest secrets, like torture and secret surveillance—and now, in this case, drones—and those clients, a number of them, have been prosecuted under the Espionage Act—and Edward Snowden, of course, another one, is living in exile—not because they’ve done anything wrong or even revealed classified information, which they’re not here to do today, but because they have embarrassed the U.S. government. All of these men—a number of them, half of them, have complained internally, to no avail. They have gone through internal channels.
And we’re hoping that today, by going public, that this will have more of an influence in the debate, because somehow there’s a complete disconnect between these terrorist attacks in Paris and elsewhere and the fact that the drone program has fueled ISIS and al-Qaeda and a number of terrorist groups, and that really needs to be addressed.
MICHAEL HAAS: Yes, the term “fun-sized terrorists” was used to just sort of denote children that we’d see on screen.
AMY GOODMAN: What was it?
MICHAEL HAAS: “Fun-sized terrorists”.
AMY GOODMAN: “Fun-sized terrorists”?
MICHAEL HAAS: Yes! Other terms we’d use would be “cutting the grass before it grows too long”, just doing whatever you can to try to make it easier to kill whatever’s on screen. And the culture is—that mentality is very much nurtured within the drone community, because these—every Hellfire shot is sort of lauded and applauded, and we don’t really examine who exactly was killed, but just that it was an effective shot and the missile hit its target.

LIFE AFTER CAPITALISM! FDR’s ‘New Deal’ Negotiated With Greedy Corporatists To PRESERVE CAPITALISM: Social Security, Unemployment Compensation, Medicare, Medicaid, Minimum Wage, Public Works Programs Re 25% Unemployment During GOP’s ‘GREAT DEPRESSION’ Was The Direct Result Of Political Pressure Applied By THE COALITION: Communists, Labor Unions & Socialists! That’s Right! Communists Were Powerful In 1940s USA! Today You Don’t Know Your Own History Because Nobody In MSM Tells You What I’m Telling You! Additionally 1- FDR Died, 2- Republicans Passed 2-Term Presidential Limits To Prevent 2nd FDR (FDR Elected 4-Times), 3- GOP Assassinated Communism’s Public Reputation (Despite Soviets Being Our Allies In WWII), 4- GOP Today Destroying Labor Unions, 5- Capitalism Made To Appear Omnipotent ‘Best Thing Since White Bread’, 6- Republicans Reversing FDR’s ‘New Deal’ For The Last 60-Years To Prevent A 2nd ‘New Deal’. Why? In 2015 Top Tax Rate Is 39%. To Finance ‘New Deal’, In 1944 Roosevelt Taxed Every Dollar Of Income Over $25,000 At 94% (FDR Wanted To Tax Income Over $25,000 At 100%!) That’s Right: Rich Got To Keep $6 Of Every $100 – That’s It! In 2015 The Elements Of That ‘COALITION’ Have Been Emasculated/Destroyed! Rich Folks Want Americans To Be Stupid/Not Know Our Own History To Preserve Their ‘GOLDEN GOOSE’ Called ‘CAPITALISM’! BUT There Are ALTERNATIVES – THERE IS LIFE AFTER CAPITALISM!
Posted on November 19, 2015 by
TABACCO’S SHANGRI-LA: Life After Capitalism begins with electing Bernie Sanders as President and driving Republican Party to 3rd Party Status, then gaining Super Majorities in both Senate and House. Constitutional Amendment passed by the People to ‘Un-limit’ Presidential Terms of Office! Re-establish Tillman Act of 1907 as Constitutional Amendment, prohibiting Corporate Campaign Contributions. Make Lobbying a Federal Criminal Offense, punishable by 10-20 years imprisonment + Fines according to ability to pay. Issue NEW U.S. Currency and INVALIDATE present Currency within 30-days of Effect making it basically worthless except for Trade-In Value. Allow any single individual over the age of 18 to trade in up to ($1 million – $10 million, to be determined) in Old Currency for New Currency, which automatically eliminates ALL BILLIONAIRES and makes their off-shore HIDDEN ASSETS worthless! The Cost of Living will be cut to a Fraction of its current Level. Limit Income for Too Big To Fails by Strict Enforcement of Anti-Trust Laws, Federally Control Prices! Revised Graduated Income Tax would control Salaries! A ‘REAL’ GRADUATED INCOME TAX would be installed with Limits at FDR’s Rates in 1944!
Public Financing of ALL ELECTIONS! No more Billionaires and no more Financing your own Election!
Life After Capitalism can be BLISSFULLY UTILITARIAN FOR EVERYBODY (NOT JUST THE ELITISTS) if only Americans would stop listening to Network/Corporatist/Republican PROPAGANDA and follow Tabacco’s Scenario for LIFE AFTER CAPITALISM!
WE THE PEOPLE HAVE THE VOTES TO DO IT! Continue reading
DEFEATING ISIS Is NOT A Question Of ‘Who Is Right, And Who Is Wrong?’ Because Both Democrats & Republicans Are LYING To USA! “Could ISIS Be Strengthened By U.S., French, Russian Bombing?” No Victory Is Possible! Only Reagan’s War Against Grenada (Population 106,349 In 2014) Besmirches America’s Perfect LOSING Record Since WWII! Remember Korea? Remember Vietnam? Remember Iraq? What Did Einstein Say About Insanity? ‘Doing Same Thing Over And Over And Expecting A Different Result’! Of Course Politicians Cannot Say That – “We Cannot Defeat Any Terrorist Group Like ISIS”? Not To The Voters In The Most Powerful Militarized Country On Earth! People Would Want To Know, “WHY?” – There’s That Evil Word Again That Only Your Children Seem To Know! Yes, Democrats! Yes, Republicans! “Why Can’t America Defeat ISIS?” Better Still, “How Can America Defeat An Enemy That Re-grows Limbs Like The Axolotl?” Defeating ISIS/ISIL Is Like Capturing Smoke In A Fishing Net! Rotsa Ruck, Guys!

You may recognize this face as the poster animal of this blog, but the Mexican axolotl hasn’t been spoiled by fame. This hard worker not only can make copies like Xerox—regenerating a missing limb; tail; and parts of their brain, heart, and lower jaw—but it’s a favorite study subject among scientists.
James Monaghan, a biologist at Boston’s Northeastern University, began studying axolotls during a grad school project and stuck with them since.
“If they’re paralyzed in the back they can recover the functions of their legs … They can make all new neurons and new connections that allow them to use their legs again, which is really one of the most incredible examples of recovery.” – http://voices.nationalgeographic.com/2013/08/28/worms-that-regrow-heads-and-other-regenerators/
Tabacco: Is the AMA asleep at the wheel? C’mon, fellas! Forget about Bionics, Lindsay Wagner & Lee Majors! Go straight to AXOLOTL for inspiration!
PS If you are anticipating Tabacco comparing ISIS to Axolotl, then you need not bother to read this Post – you are there already! Continue reading

When couples or hopeful mothers turn to a sperm bank to help them conceive, they’re presented with a slew of choices about their preferences for a potential donor: Brown eyes or blue? What skills are desirable? What is his family medical history?
A Cambridge genetic technology firm is looking to add a new dimension of consideration to that selection process by looking inside of both the woman’s and the potential donors’ DNA for hidden disease risks. It digitally marries the genetic profiles of a woman with potential donors, to predict whether their hypothetical child would be at risk for hundreds of recessive conditions.
Silver said, “It’s the combination of the woman and the man together that causes likelihood of a particular disease in a child.
The excluded donors will differ from client to client. “These donors might be perfectly good for another woman—it is very specific to the combination of genes”, says Silver.

WHAT DID WE EXPECT? The George W. Bush Regime In 2003 Initiated War On Iraq, Killing Hundreds Of Thousands Of Muslims As ‘Collateral Damages’, Disingenuously Alleging Saddam Hussein’s Involvement In 9/11/2001. Wars Are Declared To Reward War Profiteers Here By Spending Your Tax Dollars To Control OPEC Oil & Engage Military Contractors, Saddled With Little Government Supervision. The World Bank Makes Loans To 3rd World Countries While Forcing Those Countries To Bear AUSTERITY, Which Is Exactly Contrary To What The USA Does In Bad Economic Times, To Force Those Countries To Take Future Loans To Pay Off Initial Loans. Did We Expect That Citizens Of Droned Countries Would Swallow Their Pride And Their Blood Without Retaliation? Did We Expect People To NOT Take Action Against US Because Their Governments Dared Not? If The Shoe Were On The Other Foot & Islamic Elitists Were Exploiting, Bombing, Droning, Bribing Our Politicians & Committing Genocide On Folks In Indiana, Texas & Vermont, How Passive Would We Americans Be If Our Government Could Do Nothing In Retaliation? Now France Is Paying Dearly For Its Coalition With America Because It Is Easier For Terrorists To Attack The French Than Americans On Other Side Of Planet Earth! And USA Media Refuses To Even Consider The Reasons WHY ISIS, Al Qaeda & Taliban Are Growing. After All, Lots Of Terrorists Are Martyrs Too – Of Course The MSM Focuses On Islam & 19 Virgins In Heaven – Yeah, That Must Be The Reason! All The MSM Can Say Is, “Self-Radicalized Evil Terrorists” Because The War Profiteers Control The US Government & The MSM. ‘Do Unto Others As You Would Have Others Do Unto You!’ WHAT DID WE EXPECT!

“What Did We Do That Provoked Muslim Terrorists To Do What They Do?” – The Pink Elephant In The Room! That’s The Question Our Mainstream Media Has Such Difficulty In Posing Or Analyzing. They Know The Question; They Just Refuse To Ask It! Wouldn’t You Like An Intelligent Analysis & Conclusion To That Q? I Know I Would! Since Nobody Else Will, Tabacco Steps Up To The Mic To Demand An Answer – “What Did We Do That Provoked Muslim Terrorists To Do What They Do?”
The Ancient Romans, Ancient Greeks, Napoleon’s French, British Empire & Hitler’s 3rd Reich all fell from the Top! Each was selfish, cruel, murderous, warlike & Numero Uno! What makes you think their fate will not befall the United States of America? Continue reading
SECRET TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP (TPP) DEAL EXPOSED AT LAST! Full Text Of TPP (Monsanto’s Dream Trade Deal AKA Obama’s FTA), Is Much Worse Than Anyone Thought (Except For Tabacco, That Is)! Only 1-Issue Organizations, Greedy Corporatists & Greedier Politicians Would Support This FTA! $400K Per Annum Is Not Enough For Obama Or Bush! There Will Be No More Lincolns In The White House, Only Bushes, Obamas, Trumps & Hillarys! Hillary Wants To ‘Earn’ All Those War Profiteering Dollar$ Her Hubby Never Pursued – Looks Like Bill Was The Moral One! Trump Is On A Never-ending Ego Trip! Carson Is A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing! Only Bernie Sanders ‘Might’ Represent ALL AMERICANS, And He’s NOT Perfect! In Recent Times, We Had No REAL CHOICE – In 2016 We Do! BERNIE SANDERS, NOT HILLARY ‘MONEYBAGS’ CLINTON! Such Is America Of Democans & Republicrats! Politicians Are Not Patriots Because Patriots Do Not Become Politicians! Patriots Don’t Become Billionaires Either!
Posted on November 12, 2015 by
AMY GOODMAN: With the fine print now disclosed, the TPP’s opponents say their worst fears have been confirmed. In a statement, Public Citizen said, quote, “The text shows that the TPP would offshore more American jobs, lower our wages, flood us with unsafe imported food and expose our laws to attack in foreign tribunals”.
ORGS IN FAVOR Of TPP: Monsanto! All Big PhRMA, Washington Fair Trade Coalition (there’s that phrase again – “Fair Trade”), Wall Street, US Chamber of Commerce,
ORGS AGAINST TPP: Over 2,000 Organizations now on Record as OPPOSING TPP! A few are listed here! And NO, I do NOT publish the TPP’s 2,000 pages here!
Among the 2,000 are Doctors Without Borders, MoveOn.org, an unprecedentedly united movement of labor, environmental, family farm, consumer, faith, Internet freedom and other organizations escalated their campaign to defeat Fast Track trade authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) on April 27, 2015 with a joint 2,008-group letter urging Congress to oppose it.
Other organizations to sign the letter include 350.org, Action Aid USA, Alliance for Retired Americans, American Sustainable Business Council, Consumers Union, Defenders of Wildlife, Electronic Frontier Foundation, League of Conservation Voters, NAACP, National Nurses United, Presbyterian Church USA, Presente.org, SEIU, Union of Concerned Scientists and United Methodist Church General Board of Church and Society.

EDUCATION SEGREGATION! “What Happens When We Provide The Same Education To Others That Is Typically Afforded To The Children Of The Lucky, The Entitled & The Rich?” NYS State Prison Inmate Debate Team (Representing Bard Prison Initiative) DEFEATS Harvard University Debate Team! TOPIC: ‘Whether U.S. Public Schools Should Be Able To Deny Enrollment To Undocumented Students’. Prison Debaters Required To Argue Affirmative Position! RESOLVED: The Disenfranchised Prison Population Can Benefit From Higher Education Behind Bars As Much As The Silver Spoon Set! ANALYSIS: Why High Cost Of College Education Is Permitted To Escalate Astronomically – It Is Not Unpreventable Or Accidental – THINK: Which Group Of Americans Can Afford $60,000 Per Annum For Their Offspring’s College Tuition! America’s Elitists Want The Best Education For Their Offspring & ONLY Their Offspring! If Your Degree Is NOT From Elite University, You Are Marginalized & Will Never Rise At A Fortune 500! And If You Cannot Afford $60K Per Annum, Your Employment Ceiling Is Set! HIGHER EDUCATION INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX Vis-à-vis PUBLIC EDUCATION INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX (CHARTER/ PRIVATIZED SCHOOLS)
Posted on November 10, 2015 by
AMY GOODMAN: Despite their stellar record, a loss by the Harvard University debate team wouldn’t normally be national, let alone international, news. But one match last month wasn’t your typical sparring contest. Three members of the Harvard team squared off with opponents not from a rival university, but a maximum security New York prison. The topic was whether U.S. public schools should be able to deny enrollment to undocumented students. Despite being forced to advocate a position they don’t agree with, the prison team was declared the winner. The story went viral across the United States and around the world. The prisoners were debating as representatives of the Bard Prison Initiative, a program that offers inmates a college-level liberal arts education. Since its founding in 2001, more than 300 alumni have earned degrees while behind bars. We are joined by Max Kenner, founder and executive director of the Bard Prison Initiative. Continue reading
MORE CAPITALIST DIRTY TRICKS – This Time It’s Canadian Oil Corporation, TransCanada, Requesting The Obama Administration Temporarily DELAY Keystone XL Review Of Its Permit Application Until Nebraska, (A State Along Pipeline’s Route), Gives Its Approval (EXCUSE). TransCanada Wants To BUY TIME Until Obama LEAVES OFFICE Because Obama Is Expected To Reject The Pipeline (REASON)! Tabacco: We Don’t Accuse TransCanada Of Being Illegal; We Accuse Them Of Being IMMORAL! Tabacco Has Repeatedly Warned Readers To NOT NECESSARILY Believe The ‘JUSTIFICATIONS’ Capitalists Give For Their Initiatives; Capitalists Have Been Known To LIE ABOUT SUCH THINGS! Remember George W. Bush’s Iraq War EXCUSE Re Saddam’s Alleged Involvement In 9/11/2001? Saddam Was NOT INVOLVED & BUSH KNEW IT – GWB LIED & VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS BOUGHT IT! EXCUSES Are NOT REASONS – LOOK DEEPER!
Posted on November 9, 2015 by
“This is an extraordinary moment for grassroots activism and the fight against fossil fuels”, said Friends of the Earth President Erich Pica. “For seven years, people from around the United States campaigned together to transform a previously routine decision to approve a pipeline into a leadership test on climate change.”
The Keystone XL pipeline’s primary function would have been to move oil from the tar sands region of Alberta, Canada to port facilities on the South Texas coast, for shipping to overseas customers.
Climate scientist James Hansen, former director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, wrote in The New York Times, “If Canada proceeds, and we do nothing, it will be game over for the climate”. Hansen is one of more than 1,200 people who were arrested in front of the White House, protesting Keystone XL. Continue reading
