"Goat Yoga" the rage in Leftist Oregon

All the nuts roll to the Left Coast

(CNS News)  -  Due to overwhelming demand that left hundreds of Oregonians stuck on a waiting list, “Goat Yoga” is expanding and adding a new location near to metro Portland.

The new location will offer year-round classes and also host birthday parties for children, OregonLive.com reported Tuesday:
“It's been over a year since Lainey Morse created goat yoga and changed our lives forever.
“Starting Dec. 9, Morse will bring her special brand of goat-infused yoga to Oregon City, much closer to the Portland metro area where over half of all Oregonians live.”
Morse describes "goat yoga" in a “60 Sec Docs” Facebook video:
“Goat yoga is people doing yoga with social goats wandering around.”
“We hang in the barn, we take goat selfies, we snuggle with the goats,” Morse explains. She says “goat yoga” is actually great therapy – and that people love it so much, “There is a 600-person waiting list.” Still, “Goats are very mischievous,” she warns, so clients should expect to have their yoga mats nibbled on.

“It’s really hard to be in pain and sad when there’s baby goats jumping around you,” she says.

Why are we helping Saudi Arabia destroy Yemen?

Another project of the Military-Industrial Complex

By Dr. Ron Paul;

It’s remarkable that whenever you read an article about Yemen in the mainstream media, the central role of Saudi Arabia and the United States in the tragedy is glossed over or completely ignored. A recent Washington Post article purporting to tell us “how things got so bad” explains to us that, “it’s a complicated story” involving “warring regional superpowers, terrorism, oil, and an impending climate catastrophe.”
No, Washington Post, it’s simpler than that. The tragedy in Yemen is the result of foreign military intervention in the internal affairs of that country. It started with the “Arab Spring” which had all the fingerprints of State Department meddling, and it escalated with 2015’s unprovoked Saudi attack on the country to re-install Riyadh’s preferred leader. Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and millions more are at risk as starvation and cholera rage.
We are told that US foreign policy should reflect American values. So how can Washington support Saudi Arabia – a tyrannical state with one of the worst human rights record on earth – as it commits by what any measure is a genocide against the Yemeni people? The UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs warned just last week that Yemen faces “the largest famine the world has seen for many decades with millions of victims.” The Red Cross has just estimated that a million people are vulnerable in the cholera epidemic that rages through Yemen.
And why is there a cholera epidemic? Because the Saudi government – with US support – has blocked every port of entry to prevent critical medicine from reaching suffering Yemenis. This is not a war. It is cruel murder.
The United States is backing Saudi aggression against Yemen by cooperating in every way with the Saudi military. Targeting, intelligence, weapons sales, and more. The US is a partner in Saudi Arabia’s Yemen crimes.
Does holding hands with Saudi Arabia as it slaughters Yemeni children really reflect American values? Is anyone even paying attention?
The claim that we are fighting al-Qaeda in Yemen and thus our involvement is covered under the post-9/11 authorization for the use of force is without merit. In fact it has been reported numerous times in the mainstream media that US intervention on behalf of the Saudis in Yemen is actually a boost to al-Qaeda in the country. Al-Qaeda is at war with the Houthis who had taken control of much of the country because the Houthis practice a form of Shi’a Islam they claim is tied to Iran. We are fighting on the same side as al-Qaeda in Yemen.
Adding insult to injury, the US Congress can’t be bothered to even question how we got so involved in a war that has nothing to do with us. A few conscientious Members of Congress got together recently to introduce a special motion under the 1973 War Powers Act that would have required a vote on our continued military involvement in the Yemen genocide. The leadership of both parties joined together to destroy this attempt to at least get a vote on US aggression against Yemen. As it turns out, the only Members to vote against this shamefully gutted resolution were the original Members who introduced it. This is bipartisanship at its worst.
US involvement in Saudi Arabia’s crimes against Yemen is a national disgrace. That the mainstream media fails to accurately cover this genocide is shameful. Let us join our voices now to demand that our US Representatives end US involvement in Yemen immediately!

Yemen never even existed
The Oligarchs tell us we are supposed to be paralyzed with horror that the country of Yemen might fall apart.  So the Elites pump weapons into Yemen and Saudi Arabia in yet another an unconstitutional war.

The fact of the matter is Yemen didn't even exist until 1990.  For centuries the area was part of the Ottoman Empire (above map). So the "horror" of a poverty stricken Yemen collapsing, vanishing and/or engaging in war means less than nothing.

Trump & Putin Seek Peace in Syria, Ukraine and North Korea

Peace might break out any second. 

  • Peace, oh the "horror" of it all. Be prepared for a burst of even more anti-Russia propaganda from the Corporate Controlled Media Machine as our President tries to make peace rather than war.
  • The Military-Industrial Complex will pressure their bought and paid for lackeys in Congress to step up the already non-stop GOP sponsored Russia election hearings.

The issue of Syria dominated the more than hour-long phone call between the Russian and American presidents. Putin briefed Trump of his recent meeting with Assad, and both leaders agreed on the importance of the UN-led Syrian peace process.
Putin told Trump that President Bashar Assad confirmed his commitment to political reforms in Syria, including constitutional amendments. Assad also supported the idea of holding presidential and parliamentary elections as part of a transitional political process during his Monday meeting with Putin in Sochi reports RT News.
The Russian president informed his US counterpart of the forthcoming meeting between the leaders of Russia, Iran and Turkey aimed at finding ways to further normalize the situation in Syria while contributing to the political process in the Middle Eastern country. The trilateral talks are scheduled for Wednesday, November 22.
Both the parties expressed satisfaction with the phone call, which was practical and informative,” a statement from the Kremlin reads.

The White House said Washington reaffirmed its support for the Joint Statement of the US and Russia issued at the APEC summit on November 11. 
“We’re talking very strongly about bringing peace to Syria, very strongly about North Korea, and about Ukraine," Trump told journalists following the phone call with Putin.
The Russian president said a resolution of the Syrian political crisis must be based on the principles of preserving sovereignty, territorial integrity and the independence of Syria. Putin added that Russia has offered to host the Syrian Congress on National Dialogue in Sochi.
Putin again spoke of normalizing bilateral relations, especially when it comes to fighting terrorism. He added that cooperation between Russian and US security services could be of great practical significance. Trump supported Putin's ideas, the Kremlin said.
Putin and Trump agreed that the crisis around the Korean peninsula should be solved through diplomatic means, according to the Kremlin. While discussing the Iranian nuclear program, the Russian president restated Moscow's commitment to the full implementation of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPCOA). He also called the agreement “an important factor of regional stability” that also contributes to the global nuclear non-proliferation regime.
Putin and Trump also touched on the terrorist threat and drug production in Afghanistan. Speaking about the situation in Eastern Ukraine, Putin once again underlined that there is no viable alternative other than the full implementation of the Minsk Agreements by all parties to the Ukrainian conflict.
Trump later described his brief encounters with Putin during the summit as “good discussions.” He also slammed those who oppose US rapprochement with Russia, branding them “haters and fools.” He tweeted that “Russia can greatly help” the US in solving many pressing world issues.

A CIA Created Nightmare
Aleppo, Syria before and after the unconstitutional CIA backed war.
Even the New York Times reported that the CIA was shipping mountains of weapons into our bipartisan unconstitutional Syrian War. But have no fear. The Military-Industrial Complex protects their own. No one will ever go to jail for their crimes.

HELL FREEZES OVER - MSNBC’s Chris Matthews SLAMS Hillary For ‘Deplorables’ Comment

(Gateway Pundit)  -  It turns out that Obama doesn’t give left-wing crank Chris Matthews a tingling sensation up his legs anymore because he slammed the former president and Hillary for their anti-white rhetoric.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was in Miami over the weekend for a book signing. He zinged Hillary for her ‘deplorables’ comment and took a shot at Obama’s ‘clinging to guns and religion’ hit.
“Ever since we started this Archie Bunker thing in the early ‘70s, making fun of white working people, we kissed them goodbye. You make fun of people, you look down on them, they get the message. You call them ‘deplorables,’ they hear it. You bet they hear it.
“You say they cling to their guns and religion? Oh yeah? I cling to my religion. OK. I’m a little person, and you’re a big person. Thank you, I’ll be voting for the other guy this time.”
Donald Trump won the election because he appealed to the ‘forgotten man and woman’. Middle America has been neglected by the coastal elitists in D.C. for decades. The Democrats in particular have contempt for white Christians while praising Islam and illegal aliens.
Whites are routinely demonized by the left while carrying the brunt of the tax burden.
The ‘deplorables’ hit back hard in 2016 and will do it again the next election.

GOP Governor to Force Birth Control on Religious Based Employers

Asshole Alert!

  • More insane Republicans: "If we just agree with the Democrats on everything then we will get Leftists to vote for us."

(Washington Examiner)  -  Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) on Monday signed a bill that would mandate all employers cover birth control regardless of religious or moral objections, pushing back at rules that were activated at the federal level.
Baker, a Republican, said on Twitter Monday that his signing of the bill, which was passed along bipartisan lines in the legislature, would ensure "critical access to important contraceptive coverage." The law goes into effect immediately, but insurers have six months to implement changes.

The law in Massachusetts would run counter to federal regulations issued in October, in which the Trump administration rolled back an Obama-era rule that required employers to opt out of birth control coverage each year if they have religious objections. Preventive care for women is required under Obamacare, but the administration, through the Department of Health and Human Services, has discretion about what falls into that category.
If an employer does not have a religious or moral objection, the federal law allows for women to access a wide range of birth control, from intrauterine devices to birth control pills, without any cost to them. Some employers object to all types of birth control while others object specifically to IUDs and emergency contraception, which they liken to an abortion because their labels say they can prevent a fertilized egg from implantation.

Islamists Barge Into French Monastery, Demand Nuns Convert To Islam

We are told we must understand their pain

Two Islamist men barged into the Carmelite Verdun monastery late last week during evening prayers in which they told the nuns to convert to Islam or go to hell.

The two men were described as being in their thirties and both sporting beards and are said to have prayed in Arabic while the nuns were conducting their evening prayers. The pair also signed the guestbook of the monastery writing “Allah u Ackbar” though there were no reports of any violence taking place L’Est Républicain reports.

Bishop of Verdun  Jean-Paul Gabriel Émile Gusching said commented on the matter saying, “they prayed in Arabic during Vespers,” and added, “They presented themselves as harbingers and told them: if you do not convert, you will go to hell.’

On Sunday both men were arrested and later brought before Verdun prosecutor Guillaume Dupont who said, “They will be summoned to the verdict court of Verdun to be tried at a hearing on April 28, 2018, at 8:45 am for aggravated voluntary violence.”

Dupont said that the charge is related to psychological violence and if convicted the pair could see a 45,000 euro fine and the possibility of three years in prison.

Black Death patients are ESCAPING the hospital

If it ain't one fucking thing it's another

  • Shades of 12 Monkeys.  That's all we need is for those infected with the Black Death to jump on airplanes going all over the world.

(The Sun)  -  Hospital patients suffering from the plague are running away from hospitals because they are scared of needles and aren't used to hospital treatment.
Security guards at the Central Anti-Plague Hospital in Ambohimindra, Madagascar, are tasked with keeping patients in as well as making sure those arriving follow safety procedures.
Officials at the hospital say the main reason why patients run away is that they are scared of needles and don't have much experience of hospitals.
Jean Benoit Manhes, the deputy representative of Unicef, told the Irish Times: "Some escaped because they’re afraid of needles. People here are not used to the hospital.

"The problem of plague is not just a medical response. You can have hospitals but if people don’t come it isn’t enough.”
Such incidents have prompted fears that the plague could spread even further with each confirmed case requiring 20 people have been in contact with to be treated as a precaution.
Malagasy people have also been told not to carry out their traditional burial tradition of Famidihana which involves digging up their dead relatives every seven years.
It means 'turning the bones' and sees families cleaning the remains, rewrapping them and reburying them while other family members perform a special dance.
The African island's government has told citizens to pause the tradition for fear the plague bacteria is still active in the corpses and can be spread to the living.
Plague victims who are successfully treated also face stigma when they return home to their communities.
Dr Marielle Zaramisy, the hospital’s chief of medicine, said: "Some people are ashamed once they get out of here.
"They don’t know can they go out at night, they don’t want to tell their boss because he won’t hug them anymore."

The Black Death Doctor

Military-Industrial Complex pushes Trump to arm the Ukraine

Merchants of Death

  • The Military-Industrial Complex has pushed the endless Russia "investigations". You can't sell weapons when we are at peace.

(Washington Examiner)  -  National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster will present President Trump with a plan to help Ukraine purchase anti-tank missiles in a effort to quell pro-Russia separatists, according to a new report.
On Tuesday, the National Security Council approved a $47 million grant package which would help finance the Ukrainian government in purchasing American weapons, including Javelin anti-tank missiles, an unnamed State Department source told ABC News.
According to the outlet's White House correspondent, Tara Palmeri, McMaster will make a presentation of the plan to Trump, who then would either reject or approve the deal and send it to Congress.
Pro-Russian militants have been a source of conflict in eastern Ukraine since 2014 after Russia annexed Crimea.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis are reportedly supportive of an arms deal with Ukraine, after the Obama administration declined to help arm the country to counter the separatists.
A former Trump aide, however, stressed to ABC News that the deal could have a negative impact by damaging U.S.-Russian relations.
During his recent trip to Asia, after talking with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump hinted that he hopes to have Russia's help in solving several international issues, including in Ukraine.
"When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing," he tweeted. "There always playing politics - bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!"
