CARAVAN PALACE: "Rock It For Me", "Jolie Coquine", "Clash" & "Brotherswing"




***** www.caravanpalace.com




This entry for the music/ arts honour roll society of this journal has to definitely go to a crew that I been intending to get in here for awhile ... the exciting French electro swing crew out of Paris "Caravan Palace", this is really a tight crew if you enjoy old swing or electro swing either way, a nice blend of swing and incorporating other elements of contemporary genres ... they really rock you, a crew that is hard to keep your feet in one place listening to them! This crew started out as a 3 piece, but had to expand to the 7 member team they are today, they officially been a company since 2008 on release of their first full album, but toured a year straight between 06- 07 off of singles/ demos they had ... they are one that enhances traditional swing, and was partly inspired by another old school French great of swing "Django Reinhardt". But I really enjoy everything about this crew ... and love their stage set lighting too ... the electronics really put some spunk into it, and traditionally combined with some great clarinet, saxophone, double bass and vibraphone, 3 members doing vocals ... and excellent front vocals by the beautiful Zoe Colotis, who I love to listen to her work ... a mix of smooth, sharp and sensual! {:-) ... another crew that I recommend for those who like new swing is "Diablo Swing Orchestra". Since there was a good selection of "live" work as far as visual/ audio, I wanted to go with their live work here, and I wish great success to this crew as well ... Enjoy!

GILEAD SCIENCES: How an ANTIVIRAL GIANT can Become a GIANT VIRUS to the American Taxpayer ... The "TAX LAX" Edition ... (PHARMACEUTICAL CASH COWS PT.6) & (From The FOXHOLE with Bernie PT.33)






This posting will serve both the "Pharmaceutical Cash Cows" and "From The FOXHOLE with Bernie" series of this journal/ blog. I wanted to record this in this journal because it's an importante issue that is not getting enough coverage, and especially now for the next several months, there is just going to be political elections coverage for the most part in America. Thanx to Senator Sanders, Huffington Post & Americans for Tax Fairness on this ... the read in the Huffington Post link below is incredible, and shows the depth of just how bad the tax laws and political corruption is in this country ... we are so desensitized to corruption these dayz ... that some actually expect and accept it as part of our American fabric, but to folks like myself, it is American stupidity, passiveness and neglect, to expect and accept. Too many Americans actually expect to get ripped off these dayz, some think nothing of it, it's even fashionable for some, even some of the largest companies have advertisements/ commercials in our prime time mainstream media and programming, actually pointing out and detailing how their competition is robbing you, politicians running for political office even tell you how corrupt and unfair the system is, some that are the key ingredient in the corruption themselves. But you cant just blame this all on the company is my point, after all, it took an act of Congress to even allow this to get to the point it is, without legislation to allow this to happen, these folks would NOT take advantage of us the way they do, eh? ... so you see my point. Senator Sanders points out and anyone with any amount of sanity and common sense would tell you ... "it is not acceptable", and it's not, not unless of course you like being robbed.

Gilead Sciences is a very importante biopharmaceutical company, importante because they have a specialty and concentrate much on research and development for some critically needed antiviral drugs that deal with large scale problems like Hepatitis C & B, HIV and influenza. I'm one that even believes in giving tax incentives especially to companies that really work, contribute and earn their way, and am even supportive of a good reasonable profit being made by companies as incentive and reward for investment, risk and research ... so I'm not out to trash companies as some may think ... but what you have here is ridiculous and basically robbery ... I wouldnt call the pharma industry quite a monopoly yet ... but it has matured into at least an oligopoly. This is a case where we got burned 3 times, the taxpayers bankrolled the research, we get the highest prices on the product/ drug Sovaldi for instance here in the world at $1000 a pill/ $84K per treatment, then this American company decides to be an Irish company to avoid even paying any tax in their home, the U.S. (another reason why these corporate drafted trade deals are a disaster to the member countries involved), some of the same folks that say they want us to be globally together and a big happy familia, when it comes to their interests only, some would even like to restrict our ability to buy what we want from where, as another country ... that is how twisted this is. This is why I point out throughout this journal how free market and business is being wiped out by some of these largest entities, and were basically getting bought out of everything we own, fund and discover ... from the researcher/ scientist to the common labourer.

They deserve to make a profit ... but having a CEO that's raking in $200 million annually, having us pay/ fund and develope everything, and just the combined tens of billions in annual profits for a handful of companies is not fair business or pricing, or even reasonable taxation ... this is a form of "racketeering" ... so call it for what it actually is. This is an economic virus to the taxpayers and consumers/ patients, we are even having our military veterans being taken advantage of in this, while also draining/ milking things like our Medicare system. This is also why when I talk to folks one on one about some of these things ... I say that we need to reform and start to utilize asset forfeiture laws we have (DOJ), why should it not apply to some corporations, CEO's, or even politicians that allow this? I had a fella tell me once that asset forfeiture and even imprisonment on these entities that I talk about to folks, seems like I am talking about some kind of "Robin Hood" thing, that takes from the rich or penalizes those with money ... NO, NOT AT ALL. I would not advocate penalizing anyone who earned decent wealth ... I think those who actually earn and contribute to society, deserve reward in fact ... so that's just a cheap argument to give me ... after all, did not the US Supreme Court say that "corporations are people" ? ... well then. The fact is, that this is even beyond civil law ... these actions fall into "criminal" by law ... how can you not make the case, that things like this dont fall into the RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) category? Mainstream media and establishment flunky politics make fun of folks like Bernie Sanders, and say that he proposes things that are not possible, or even criticize legislation he drafts to combat things like this, people who say that nothing can be changed or done ... which is basically INSANITY!  ... enough from me.

GREEN COLLAR JOBS: Where Investment, Economy and Environment Meet to BEAT the FOSSIL FUEL FLUNKIES ... The "Global GREEN RUSH" Edition ... (GLOBAL WAR'N'ING PT.42)






This posting will serve as Part 42 of the "Global War'n'ing" series of this journal/ blog. I wanted to record some jobs figures in here too, as far as green jobs and how it's also been a positive as far as business and the economy, because throughout this series I been trying to point out that this green move and renewable energy is a great investment for the future, although right now with the "fossil fuel industry gone wild", you dont hear enough about this. I also notice that every time the government decides to throw a few billion bucks into incentives, tax help and other programmes/ legislation, whether it's for solar, wind or whatever ... the fossil fuel industries flunkies are all over the media criticizing for instance, if our President and his administration want to subsidize these renewable projects ... they bitch, moan and bellyache over every couple billion that is put into this, coming up with a couple businesses that may have went bankrupt, or not meeting the expectations of our energy needs, etc. On the other hand, these fossil fuel flunkies are alwayz expecting 10's of billions in subsidies to go to their out of control extraction of fossil fuels ... of still ... the taxpayers money, that they complain about us using a fraction of just for cleaner renewable ideas, that will be the future any way you slice it. The politics are so insane beyond belief too, being paid by these fossil fuel flunkies, with a Congress alwayz trying to come up with new wayz to sell dirty fuel ideas, and coming up with a new package or name ... such as when they talk about "clean coal". These fossil fuel giants are also spoiled beyond belief these dayz, we have more drilling, fracking and everything imaginable offshore and onshore, besides all the subsidies they get ... yet they want to whine and bellyache over a few billion bucks that is spent of our same tax dollars on really moving in the direction of the future of energies transition. The whining out of this pro- fossil fuel crowd is incredible ... yet they laugh at environmentalists saying that their ideas are inefficient or not practical ... saying things like ... solar power is not practical because of the energy demand, and of course keeping the prices low. Germany for instance has really went far in renewable energy and even the use of solar, and currently have all the energy they need and then some, and countries like Germany are not actually known as the most sunny places, yet, they have went far with solar ... then you have a few manufacturers in Germany that threaten to leave Germany because of energy price increases, blaming it on going green ... yet some residents in European countries have seen decreases in energy bills, but the attacks on green energy continue. No, I think the money we spend in the U.S. is great to start up and give incentive to folks who will invest, and this has been going "global", not just the U.S. . I look at the long term instead of the short ... I also look at how much money we waste on wars/ occupations for example, especially while having to police and babysit places like the middle east ... so dont whine to someone like myself about a few billion bucks spent to promote cleaner energy/ fuel.

I'm not some hardcore environmentalist either, I havent even desired an electric car for that matter, I even point out in this series that oil is still needed ... but to a point ... I understand that we are in a "energy transitional period". As far as the "global warming" is concerned, I'm NOT even hardcore on that, but for a reason ... which is because, I not only think that natural global warming and climatic change is heavily accelerated by human activity and our excessive use of fossil fuels, but I also think that we have so much damage already done, it would not only take a total renewable energy transition immediately fast tracked to try to clean up our mess, but climate science to try to even repair damage already done and try to manipulate the weather/ climate. I have talked with folks one on one in person that dont believe in global warming being man made, and think that it's a silly conspiracy made up by environmentalists ... so these dayz, I dont bother to debate it with those folks, it's pointless and a waste of time, people are still tribal anywayz, and will follow what tribe they belong to ... politically, environmentally or otherwise. I simply look at the evidence and scientific findings is all ... the science shows that you cannot do what we do to the earth and not expect to get a negative reaction ... the clear evidence is the filth that we created as a species and the destruction that we done to the planet in general ... whether it's the forests, the land, the waters, or the air/ atmosphere. I would be the same way even if we didnt have this global warming/ climate change issue ... why? ... because lets face it ... we are downright filthy as a species, it's nothing to be ashamed of, I mean, we are what we are by nature. I look at trying to clean up our planet a little, the same as we would clean our yard, take a bath, pick up the trash, or the many other things we do to try to be a little sanitary. Again also let me point out, that there is a vast future of business to come from renewable energy, in fact so huge, it will make former transitions look small ... the talk that solar doesnt work for our needs on a large scale is nonsense ... the future will be solar, wind, geothermal, hydro, biomass and more that we havent even come up with yet ... in fact, all your largest fossil fuel investors who badmouth renewables now, are going to be first in line trying to buy and own all of the renewables in the future, and they know it, they are just letting everyone else do the legwork and ratholing all the wealth to buy up the next new thing. I look at this energy transition as being more diversified and expanded, with more new companies and innovation ... that will create many jobs, but not just installing solar panels like these fossil fuel flunkies say, but maintenance, manufacturing, marketing/ advertising, accounting, green construction, and more ... in time. A few pieces of read below I wanted to add ... Word Out ....

CLINTON vs. TRUMP- THE MATCH- UP 2016/ LYING101: ... In The Ring & More Full O' Shit Than a SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT ... The "Oligarchy or Fascism" Edition ... (If HABITUAL LYING was an ILLNESS, how many Politician's would call in SICK? PT.3)




(left to right) Donald, Hillary, Bill and Melania ... just hanging out and lying to each other, the Clinton's probably trying to hustle Donald out of a few bucks, while Donald tries to hustle another tax loophole ....



This posting will serve as Part 3 of the "If Habitual Lying was an Illness, how many Politician's would call in Sick?" series of this journal/ blog, just a little cheap humour, inspired by the pre- paid excitement and seriousness that this election is being presented as ... and Thanx to Bernie Sanders, who is at least trying to force some reform in the Democratic Party. But frankly, this has to be the most bland, plastic, and overpriced elections that I've seen in my 4 decades of voting, despite what the pop- culture media sayz it is ... all it is worth to most voters, is simply fearing what either of these 2 and their establishment parties will do when they win, it's a choice of basically lesser evil vs. greater evil to most, just simply voting out of fear, instead of what they really want, and not really much choice at all. Probably one of the funniest things to me, is that the Republicans are kind of stuck with Trump, not unless something changes convention time (?), they did not have a Superdelegate system like the Democrats, they had to go with their voters choice it appears ... where Democrats had Superdelegates and can quickly mute their voters voice by using it to override Democrat voters choice if needed, from the information I gathered, that it how this seems to work, maybe something can change in the convention, I dont know. Although it's kind of obvious that the Democratic Superdelegates majority for example, and their banking/ corporate financial support, had already chose Clinton long before she ever even announced running. However, this is mainstream pre- paid American politics and bullshit at its best! ... I would assume that some of our European friends probably get a laugh looking at our system here and the corporate controlled duopoly, especially those that in their country actually use a paper ballot, that dont have to use electronic corporate controlled touch screen voting machines like many in America, at least what I have to to use to cast my vote here in Texas. Nonetheless though, this election will at least be the best horseshit that money can buy ... both of these candidates pretty close as far as lies and hypocrisy, and when they jump into the ring, there will be more shit than a sewage treatment plant! {:-)

In the moderate right corner of the ring we have defending champ of bullshit Hillary "Dead Broke" Clinton, the self proclaimed "moderate right progressive" (????), and sponsored by some of the finest oligarch controlled corporate communism in the world ... coming in at 5'ft- 6"in and around 143lbs!, a decades old political veteran of lies, and amongst the best of the best at it in modern history. Hillary is no lightweight, she has been able to flip- flop, change faces, personalities and outfits at the drop of a hat ... she is slicker than owls shit and practiced law, she is also wife of former President Bill Clinton, one of the best bullshit artists and liars in modern presidential history. Hillary started decades ago in politics as a "Goldwater Girl" ... she even at a time early on, served on the board of WalMart and helped keep the employees pay low, so that WalMart can give you "alwayz low prices"! Hillary and Bill may sound modest and claimed to be broke at a time, but been able to rustle up over $150 million in paid speeches over the last decade and a half ... they have some of the biggest and best of Wall Street and banking in the world behind them, and enjoy 4 beautiful properties throughout the year. Hillary is the best of the best when it comes to avoiding questions and changing the subject as well ... look for some of her expertise in this during debates. The Clinton's are very popular for their past trade agreements that helped send tens of thousands of manufacturing companies out of the country, and crime bill legislation that led to mass incarceration of what is seen in their circle, as the lower peasant elements in our society, to be used for corporate incarceration profiteering and asset forfeiture/ seizure. The Clinton Foundation has also been able to rake in millions from some of the worlds top money including folks like Saudi Arabia, who donate money to them I guess, to make up for all the persecution of women and executions of gay men that the Saudi's do in their country? The Clinton's are one of the most popular household names in politics today, and have plenty of house workers at minimal pay to work their asses off for them.

In the other far right corner of the ring, coming in at 6'ft- 2"in and roughly 200lbs, the one and only self proclaimed "Great One" and phony religious fundamoralist, and sponsored by American neo- fascism, is Donald "The Great" Trump, and looking as great as his challenger Hillary ... with his great make- up, hair, and designer suits ... you look absolutely beautiful Donald! ... and I personally must admit, that your wife Melania looks damn good to me too! Even though Donald The Great does not have that political experience and background as his opponent Hillary Dead Broke, he is not one to take lightly either, he was able to beat out all the top of the chain worthless Republican candidates running against him in the primaries with only words, and this guy is more smooth than the silk ties he wears ... this guy is so smooth and full of shit that he could hustle the shirt off a pimp/ players back! Known for his lavish lifestyle, buildings and casinos, I myself even stayed at his Playboy Hotel and Casino back years ago for a few nights, and had a great time Donald! Donald also takes pride in his vision of "The Great Wall of Donald", which will be built on our border with Mexico to keep out undesirables and Muslim terrorists, while smart terrorists simply use Canada to get in here (you wont find too many Muslim terrorists in Mexico setting up shop anywayz, cause they dont have enough social programmes or many mosques in Mexico as you would find in western European countries). At the same time, Donald is the one who sayz he will make America Great again, and bring back those thousands of jobs from places like China and Mexico, which I would assume would be the jobs/ business in Mexico and China that he has to make his clothing line and products that he peddles off to stores in America like Macy's, so his pop culture crowd can pay over inflated prices for them. Donald is famous also for his quickie insulting tweets on immigrants and women, he also easily hustled hundreds of millions in free political advertising in mainstream media because of them ... this guy knows how to stretch the buck. He like Bill Clinton is also well known for hitting on women "below" the belt ... he also knows how to keep labour cheap like Hillary, but instead, by shafting immigrant workers that he brings in to work on his jobs and sites in America ... having left many workers and business partners even holding the bill/ tab ... with a tax and bankruptcy legal team that can milk every dollar imaginable!

But there you have it ... which will Americans choose to be their next top multimillionaire or maybe billionaire? ... which of these 2 will be the best and No.1 at peddling off their bullshit to the voters? No doubt looking at the facts and history, you would really have to be hardcore into this election, in fear, or else totally wasted on drugs to buy most of this bullshit or get excited over it. At least this ought to be a little better year for Jill Stein and the Green Party, they should be able to hustle up at least a few more votes as a result! {:-) Below some challenging video for the viewer to decide on who's best, or in this case ... more full of shit ... Enjoy! {:-)

DALLAS POLICE AMBUSH 2016: Legislating the LEGISLATORS & Diffusing the Ticking TIME BOMB with Glen Ford & Michael Wood ... The "Casualties of War" Edition ... (Police Brutality PT.24) & (Michael A. Wood,Jr Pt.3)


  

(left to right) Glen Ford & Michael A.Wood,Jr



This posting will serve as Part 24 of the "Police Brutality" series and Part 3 of "Michael A.Wood,Jr series of this journal/ blog. My condolences to the families and friends of the 5 police officers (one a Dallas Transit officer) who were killed during this ambush as well. Even though this was the action of one man, as so far found during this investigation ... I wanted to include this in the "Police Brutality" series because it is all connected to the growing issue of the communities, race and class relations with law enforcement, but in particular, those who control and manage law enforcement and legislation. The ironic part of this incident ... is that it happened in Dallas, which shows that this is a ticking time bomb that can happen anywhere coast to coast ... and what I mean by that, is that out of the largest U.S. cities, Dallas PD is a model for other cities as far as police community relations, Dallas is one of the most progressive cities when it comes to policing (see Toronto Star link below) ... and more ahead on this avenue than most of the so called "liberal cities" of the country, this may be hard to believe for some since it is in Texas, but it is fact, and much credit also can go to Dallas Police Chief David Brown. I had been able to talk to several people in the community here in Dallas since this happened to get their views and reaction, none of them I talked to though attended the protest event, nor was I at the event, and didnt even hear a thing about it as it was going down, I live in the City of Dallas, but I live about 15 miles northwest of downtown, I didnt hear anything until I woke up friday morning on the news. But for thousands of people that live in downtown and uptown, this was traumatic and continues to be, as well as for the peaceful protesters and officers who were trying to keep the peace, but got blindsided by this. But below I wanted to add videos about the condition from Glen Ford of "Black Agenda Report" (a blog I recommend for insight on related issues), and from former Baltimore Police Sergeant Michael Wood, both of these guyz are straight about pointing out the problems and should be heard out, and Thanx as well to The Real News Network for covering this from an alternative non- corporate controlled view. I also added a couple news links from Dallas and Toronto news ... after, I will add my own part to this.

Thomas Hudson Pickering/ Ranch Chimp



While many officers that are in question of their lethal force and in some cases clear murder of citizens are being not held accountable for their actions, and because of policies almost impossible to be reprimanded in any significant way or brought to a trial or any kind of real justice served ... we had 5 innocent police officers killed in Dallas as a response, and others that were shot but survived, including 2 citizens. You have an Army veteran who was the shooter and determined to take down as many as he can, in particular white officers/ people ... technically it is a hate crime as well ... a police chief, who is being criticized for using a robot armed with a bomb to take out the shooter, the police in a situation and stand- off, and this man Johnson was NOT going to be taken alive, I would bet on it ... these are the casualties of war. Even though it seems ironic to me that this happened at a very peaceful march in downtown Dallas, like Michael in the above video sayz, "I was not surprised" either ... to me, it was just a matter of time, I wrote plenty about this in this series and journal, as far as the sophistication and proficiency of not just the police and militarization, but about folks that are trained in combat and tactical response/ resistance that will come ... in time. The opinions and blame on this is in the thousands all over internet/ social media ... I heard folks blame it on Black Lives Matter, Progressives, a conspiracy by the globalist elites to start it to disarm everyone, and some politicians blaming the gun ... to even blaming it on Hillary Clinton staging it so that folks dont talk about her email scandal, and everything in between ... it is just insane, I'm surprised to not hear yet that space aliens are to blame. This shooter just had enough frustration in him to go and do this alone (if indeed he didnt get help) if he needed ... the 'condition' and 'trauma' of the reality in this country is motivation all by itself without any conspiracies ... if Johnson didnt do it, you can bet that someone else would and there are plenty more that think like Johnson and even look at him as a martyr and hero in a domestic urban battle. I heard President Obama say that everyone involved with this shooting is going to be held accountable and brought to justice ... my question to the President would be ... "when are police officers that kill people with no good reason going to be brought to justice and held accountable?". I heard U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions of Texas say that "Washington wont be able to legislate themselves out of this one" (similar wording) ... the problem in that statement from Congressman Sessions is ... that there is no one hardly in our Congress in Washington or the states, that are legislating enough to improve this or doing a damn thing about it ... we need to as a society start to lay down the draft, present and demand legislation to these legislators, and making them actually change policies and how policing is done ... and especially what in Hell has his own Republican Party done? We have so many politicians telling us what the problems are that we already know, while they run their mouths over and over and are doing nothing, but kissing corporations asses like the private prison industry, who make a bundle off these bunk biased policies. What is the Congressional Black Caucus doing as Glen points out in the above video? ... what are cities that are so liberated supposedly with people of colour and Democrats that been running these cities like Baltimore been doing? ... Baltimore is heavily in this crisis, and the resistance from the people is 110% justified.

What lit the fuse for this incident in Dallas was not just past cases and policies against black, brown and lower income citizens, but these recent cases in the week around the Dallas Police ambush, the cases of Alton Sterling (CNN), Philando Castile (HuffPost), and Dylan Noble (LA Times) ... there was also another that is lacking mainstream news coverage of Delrawn Small (Democracy Now), today these are becoming a week to week or bi- monthly thing, more and more common, there are so many, that I cant even keep up with them ... rest assured though, that the resistance as well will become more and more common. Until action is taken, it will continue to get worse and worse, there is no avoiding it ... deadly force policy needs to change, the drug issue with addiction needs to be addressed and money to work on it, instead of our taxes used as a for profit industry, mental health issues as well ... you dont lock up people that are sick with an illness in penal institutions, especially corporate ran ones ... period. Legislation needs to also be made on a Federal Government level at first, to tear down this mass incarceration machine and police militarization, and it can then be adopted with enough pressure on a state to state level ... the same as how the states quickly adopted the 1993/ 1994 Federal Crime Bill on a state to state level to make money ... what we can make, we can also change and unmake ... those in Washington and on a local level that DO NOT attempt to change a damn thing, need to be ousted from political office ... this means on both these sides of Democrats and Republicans, they are the only ones doing all the damage in this country, and the citizens and police are paying the price for THEIR actions and lack of action. This is NOT the fault of radicalization or the Black Lives Matter movement ... why "Black Lives Matter" is needed? ... is because this country with it's intergenerational and systemic racism and neo- classism makes it so that all lives matter except those of colour and the working poor classes ... that is WHY you need organizations like BLM. We are going backwards in this country, there is even a war on our Civil Rights today, and everything from voting to workers organizing to our First Amendment Right of speech, assembly is being attacked and suppressed. The people/ citizens or Black community are NOT asking for "special treatment", as so many right wing advocates espouse ... this IS NOT about special treatment, it is about equal treatment and justice ... this does NOT penalize those with wealth either, it simply makes a fair playing field, and that is what Democracy and liberty should be about ... not this oligarchic controlled corporate communism you see today. The incident that happened in Dallas last week was just one man ... if there were really 3 or 4 involved in this ambush plot, with the same motivation and training as Johnson, there would have even been a significantly higher casualty rate, as it is right now, our military has been having to dismiss new recruits recently after screening them and finding connections with them to groups such as White Supremacist's ... they are joining for the training in other words. As long as our legislators allow this to continue, the police and citizens will suffer, and in time ... will come for you too in politics and high places ... bank on it. Enough from me ...


Word Out ....

ST.VINCENT/ ANNIE CLARK: "Your Lips Are Red", "Dig A Pony", "Birth In Reverse" & "Huey Newton" ... (BEAUTIFUL GIRLZ PT.20)




***** ilovestvincent.com




This entry into the music/ arts honour roll society of this journal/ blog is another past due and has to go to Annie Clark aka St.Vincent for her outstanding work as far as her unique compositions, guitar work and vocals ... difficult as far as what to post here on her, since there is much to choose from, and I wanted to keep this as "live" performances. Annie grew up here in Dallas, and graduated from Lake Highlands High School and started her arts venture there, the same High School that Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers graduated from ... after High School, Annie went to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, spent a few years there and dropped out, figuring to just go out on her own and do her own thing, coming back to Dallas and joining The Polyphonic Spree. But Annie plays various instruments and had many influences in music from Hendrix and the Beatles to David Bowie to Kate Bush is at the tops of her list ... pop, rock, jazz, to indie, she also had the opportunity to do an album with David Byrne of the Talking Heads and opened for so many groups, looking to do her indie/ alternative with a touch of jazz thing, but wanting to try to incorporate it into pop music and give it a harder alternative edge of sort. She is just an outstanding writer, vocalist, guitarist ... and a producer who is hands on in everything she does, and lives in her art, she has received awards and even a Grammy, and managed to get out 5 albums in a 7 year span, I'll let the Wikipedia cover the rest. When it comes to vocals for instance, she is at the tops with me, because she can make a sharp turn quickly in any arrangement from soft and gentle to a rage of fury, and blends it just right with a really nice range, and has a great crew behind her ... I love her unique guitar style, and I went with her electric work here instead of the acoustics for this posting. I also wanted to add her in the "Beautiful Girlz" series for her talent, mind and exquisite beauty ... she is really a jewel, and top of the line! I selected 4 pieces below, and I wanted to add her cover of "Dig A Pony" by the Beatles, which I love her guitar work on, and I look forward to much more from this artist and wishing her the best on her adventures ... Enjoy!

TRUTHOUT/ MIKE LUDWIG: Obama Administration Approved Gulf Fracking During Deepwater Horizon Disaster ... The "GULF of DISASTER" Edition ... (GLOBAL WAR'N'ING PT.41)




***** Mike Ludwig/ Truthout 




This posting will be Part 41 of the "Global War'n'ing" series of this journal/ blog, because I have heard no mainstream news coverage of this, and it is very importante for folks to be aware of, another issue that there can never be enough coverage of and pressure on our government and agencies that should be doing their jobs. This is a piece of investigative reporting Thanx to Mike Ludwig, Truthout and all involved ... this is something that I would expect in maybe some underdeveloped countries, where there is an actual excuse ... but not in the United States, and especially at the costs that we spend to run and staff these agencies, and of course this makes our President (Obama) and his administration look bad because of the action, neglect and incompetence within these agencies ... more like a "I dont give a shit attitude" about their work. The whole reason/ purpose for these agencies like BSEE (Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement) and the BOEM (Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management) ... is to prevent incidents like the 2010 BP oil spill, which our regulators also failed on that spill, with these "categorical exclusions", which exempts many of these companies from proper inspections, regulations enforcement and being held legally accountable ... these agencies are to make sure that there are safeguards and protections, not just to the environment, but for business and economic reasons as well ... this report is mind- blowing, and a clear recipe for future disaster across the board in our Gulf of Mexico and all the Gulf Coast states ... and more on the Pacific Coast if this isnt stopped. It is bad enough that BP gets a tax write off for 75% of their settlement fines/ costs on the oil spill (HuffingtonPost), which is what I expected to happen nearly 6 years ago as far as financial responsibility ... that was clear neglect and intentional on their part, basically to avoid regulatory oversight and pass on basic production expenses to save a few million bucks on some valve, which was stupid judgement from a business perspective, being the costs of lives, gulf coast industries, and the environment, along with the $20 billion settlement, that is at least $5.5 billion out of pocket for them ... we the taxpayers will have to shell out 75% of their settlement with our tax money ... which Atty General Loretta Lynch looked at as a good deal ... or the best we can expect, but it's all legal, and we pay all these so called giants continuous welfare subsidies regardless of how incompetent they are ... we basically use our taxes to feed those, while they run and buy our government with our damn money. This is also why there is really desperate need for 'tax reform' (and not the kind that politicians are talking about, to favour these huge entities) ... it is fair to give a business/ company a tax write off in my opinion for legitimate expenses or an unintentional act that leads to a disaster of such magnitude ... but, intentionally fucking up to save a few bucks and not being responsible to the fellow business community or taxpayers, with little regard for workers safety and the environment, which is all part of your profitability and livelihood, should be YOUR/ SHAREHOLDERS COST!

But Mike's report below, will not just show the incompetence of our own government's well paid and staffed agencies of oversight and regulations with their irresponsibility, but the disastrous amount of activity growing in this already environmentally sensitive region, not even sure of who is doing what down here. Agencies who do not even have enough research to determine the true hazards, are ignoring inspections and penalties ... while 10's of billions of gallons of chemically contaminated waste water gets dumped into the Gulf annually, which includes using things like hydrofluoric acid to maximize fossil fuel flow increase. The argument alwayz comes down to job creation and supplying energy demand, which is clear as day bullshit ... there is just as much new job creation and new business/ investment to come in new energies, biofuels, wind, solar and much new technologies that are moving quickly, even CRISPR can change so much on fuel/ energy (ScienceDaily) ... it is also clear how these energy companies are trying to obstruct mass use of newer forms of energy all over the country and abroad, and all just to rape the planet of anything that can make a buck ... bottom line is this is also bad for business too. Enough from me .... more below from Truthout.

TAQUERIA EL PAISANO SALSA & CHIPS BRAWL: A Tex- Mexunderstanding! ... The "Some Like It Hot" Edition ... "DONT BE ALARMED PT.20" ... You're in Dallas {:-0






This posting will serve as Part 20 for the "Dont Be Alarmed" series of this journal/ blog, part of the posting title was inspired by the 1959 comedy classic "Some Like It Hot" movie ... and Thanx to Isael Rojas of Dallas who recorded this video the other day (it was middle of the night/ early morning of saturday June 26th), which was at the Taqueria El Pasiano over here in Northwest Dallas on Lombardy Ln close to Denton Drive. This brawl started basically over choice of green or red salsa for their chips ... and I can understand, I am very critical about my salsa as well, as you can see HERE and HERE ... I mean, dont try to pass off some bunk weak salsa on me ... and I like it HOT! It appears in the video that this fight broke out between some galz and escalated to the guyz jumping in ... I prefer to watch the ladies brawl more than the guyz ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-) but that is the kind of sick puppy that I am I reckon ... anywayz, no one arrested or hurt, but I felt sorry for the employees who got to clean up the mess too. However ... if you happen to stop at a local taqueria in Dallas, and run across some angry customers, it just may tell you something about the salsa, but don't be alarmed, you're in Dallas {:-) Anywayz, have a fun 4th of July weekend!


Word Out ....

BUCK the TPP Lame Duck from Running Amuck 2016: TPP/ TROUBLED PARASITIC PRIVILEGES & Frivolous Lawsuits ... The "Buck the Duck" Edition ... (AMERICAN TRADE/ TPP PT.7)






***** CREDO/ ACTION: The Democratic Party Platform must include unequivocal opposition to the TPP ... (petition)



***** CREDO/ ACTION: Tell House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi: No lame- duck vote on TPP ... (petition)






Thomas Hudson Pickering/ Ranch Chimp




This posting will be Part 7 of the "American Trade" series for this journal/ blog, to look at why it's importante to not let TPP slip us during this busy election year ... I also want to Thank Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for inspiring this posting. Yesterday I caught some of Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren's speech in Cincinnati ... it was a great speech and of course Warren really energized the crowd as well, but the news this morning only focused on Elizabeth calling Donald Trump names, and of course Trump tweeting and talking insults back in response ... I mean, CNN news this morning was saturated with this, and it's nothing but pointless and stupid badmouthing, that does nothing but burn too much importante mainstream media time. It's sad as it is, that Trump already probably got tens of millions of dollars in free political campaign advertising, from doing nothing but making some tweets and public statements, he simply can make a tweet when he wakes up in the morning, that gets peoples panties in a bind, whether its about women, immigrants or whatever, the minute he sayz anything that can be tossed into race, sex or related, major news networx will have entire full panels of political experts set up, spending hours to analyze what he said and what he means ... when you should just go to Trump, I dont think he would have any problemo telling you what he means in a New York minute, it just shows you how stupid the big money thinx we are. Also expect Trump to go after Clinton on trade, which is another positive, because it will push these trade deals more into the open, forcing it to be a lead issue, if Bernie Sanders didnt push TPP and trade so hard, you can bet Clinton would have never brought it up ... I mean, NAFTA for instance was Bill Clinton's prize package as President. But there was good news yesterday that the Supreme Court struck down the Texas denial to women for abortion access (CNN), I figured they would rule this way though, so it didnt surprise me ... again let me point out, that when it comes to a woman's right to choose or same- sex marriage and some related social issues, the big money which has influence over our courts and government are not going to buck it when their backs are to the wall on these type issues, the whole reason why the big money creates issues like these and spend years through politics, propaganda groups, and their religious institutions to deny simple rights, is to use as leverage against us, and a bargaining chip to screw you out of something bigger ... understand, that the big money influence could care less about you, your love/ sex life, or what a woman chooses for her body, or if a person wanted to even marry their cat, dog or horse, they care about money, control and power only ... nothing else. The other big news this morning was about the Republicans releasing their pointless report on Benghazi and Hillary Clinton, her emails, failure, etc, which is pointless unless there is an indictment ... and of course the Democrats and their pointless response, that they will release, which is all pointless, because it will do nothing, but waste more mainstream media time. The point on this for instance, if I were Clinton's legal counsel, I would not respond, except tell them Republicans, to bring charges or shut the Hell up, or I'll bring a case for defamation on you ... but, I guess it's all show business, eh?

The thing that caught my atencion yesterday in the Clinton/ Warren speech, was when Hillary Clinton said absolutely "NO" to TPP with such confidence ... I was a little surprised actually, and especially on her complete turn around, pointing out real progressive demands and change, no clever wording, no sugar- coating, etc, which is absolutely great if she is sincere about it ... yesterday she sounded more progressive than Bernie Sanders, and as if she rehearsed his speech! {:-) I was surprised, because not long ago, Clinton was equally confident, calling the TPP the 'gold standard' of trade, then at the end of last year she started to say that it needed to be looked at, perhaps modified or whatever ... yesterday she just said "no" to it. Which made me assume the reason why, is because she is banking on it being slipped through in the lame duck session of Congress at the end of this year, of course after elections ... at the end of last year (2015), President Obama was already anticipating that it may have to go that route of the lame duck session, if it does not go through in the first half of 2016. This way ... if it went through on the lame duck, it's done at the end of the year, and would have no negative or positive repercussions on the next President or Congress, it can all be blamed on the previous house and administration, and the outgoing President (Obama) wouldnt care ... he just wants to push it through, he's out next year, or any of the other politicians that are pushing it through. But it seems like these lame duck sessions are notorious for passing through legislation that most folks dont want ... it's a time when corporate/ banking lobbyists and their pocket puppet politicians I guess, can run amuck on the house. But yes, I suspect that they are going to sneak this in on us as an outgoing Christmas present this end of year holiday season ... as long as oligarch controlled corporations and banks are running Washington alone, they are going to screw us every time, bank on it. But there is a growing opposition to this, and this is one where I'm happy to see some Republicans using their obstructionism on Obama, some actually trying to cancel a lame duck session, which they say is unprecedented, but NOT illegal, I'm with them on that too, and this is something that many folks left and right can mutually buck and agree on. I also look at "Brexit" as a positive the other day, what I mean is that Great Britain is big money as far as the EU, it add's some obstacles for TTIP ... I mean, we cant just say ... "ohhh well ... no biggie", heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-) ... anything to disrupt these corporatists/ oligarchs plans is a positive {:-) Also again, the talk you hear about we should be afraid of China is simply a corporate fear card the way I see it ... I see no reason to worry about China, but plenty of reason to have concern about the corporatists running our country, remember, it was decades of our legislators working with China that put our trade and economics with China where it is today ... all China done was take advantage of an opportunity we handed to them, they are NOT our enemy ... I mean, we went to them decades ago, they didnt come to us. The ones who REALLY need to fear China are only the corporatists/ oligarchs, that's why these trade deals are created to make a huge corporate western trade/ economic block, to have more leverage on pushing China to meet the oligarchs goals/ demands, since China has more control over their capital/ business/ assets than us for example, and China and their Russian neighbours are finding some common interests too (Sky News) ... China is setting up their own Asian trade circle, so basically what we see, is a trade, economics, territorial and military occupation dominance battle between the east and west.

But back to the trade deal ... a trade deal should able to be made with simply a couple dozen pages or so, you should not need 5000/ 6000 bloody damn pages oversaturated with of all kinds of special corporate privileges, nor should it only be made/ drafted by the largest corporate/ banking entities of the globe and their cherry- picked pre- paid pocket politicians. Politicians alwayz tell us, like the Presidents/ leaders for instance, that this is about reducing taxes for mom and pop's bakery, or the entrepreneur in whatever country that has a start up unique product/ business ... nothing is for free in this society of today, when they give us a little tax break or other incentive, it's no different than some mega corporate/ banking commercial telling you that they will give you something for nothing, and locking you in to some lengthy commitment, these deals are not to benefit the small business/ company, as much as it's to benefit those at the top, and history shows that when you let these people draft all these deals, we all lose in the long run. If any of these deals were to benefit us, they would have our input in drafting them up, not doing it in secret and keeping it secret. Sure there are plenty of problems when it comes to labeling products, the environment as well as monopolization and price manipulation through certain industries ... it is true as pointed out below in the "New American" link, that if the salesmen who sold us NAFTA would be rightfully held accountable, they would be criminally charged with misrepresentation, fraud and deception, like anyone of us who sold a bad product ... they werent, and that is why we need to fight back so hard against this. The talk about this is the "new thing" to bring us all together globally is more nonsense, we are already interacting, networking and moving about the globe more than ever in human history, we dont need a sham like this to bring us together ... which decreases choice and competition that is healthy in any business, but puts us all in a competitive race to the bottom. When the lame duck session comes at the end of this year, you can bet that they will be watched on Capitalism Hill more than a fox watching a hen house, and it will be challenged heavily ... another plus even if it went through, is you still have that 2 year "ratification period", so it's importante to stay on their asses. Again I want to point out, how not only the lack of many consumer and environmental protections and needed regulations/ oversight ... but the ISDS (Investor- State Dispute Settlement) is what really can set us back financially big time, and have us in years of lengthy litigations once the doors are fully opened, it can end up like a tsunami of frivolous lawsuits on us and our countries, which has been limited so far, but opening these larger trade packages with so many countries involved, makes it more complex and getting ourselves deeper into a hole. This is why I included a video below with Melinda St.Louis of "Public Citizen", to try to simplify in common language what this consists of, and the danger of how many corporations can use so many new countries trade deals to drain us of billions of dollars if we decline their products/ deals, Melinda been at this a long time ... so give her a listen. Then I added also 3 link reads below, one from PBS pointing out the positives of TPP, but ignoring the negatives of it, which is why so many like the President is gung- ho to pass it ... again, trade is a good thing, but total mega- corporate control alwayz brings trouble.

BREXIT/ F- U to EU 2016: Reliance on DEFIANCE & Garnishment 4 the ESTABLISHMENT ... w/ INFIDEL753 & RT NEWS ... The "Anarchy in the UK" Edition ... (The AWAKENING PT.42) & (THE END MUST BE NEAR PT.8)







#BREAKING NEWS*! BREXIT HAS PASSED! Britain Leaves EU! World Going Mad! The END Is Near! ... Thanx to DOCKIDDS






It's really time for another posting of the end must be near, so this posting will serve both "The Awakening" and "The End Must Be Near" series of this journal/ blog ... to take a looksy at a fairly historic piece that broke out when the Brit's left the EU yesterday, basically telling the EU establishment "Fuck You". The Mainstream media all over U.S. today is full of hysteria, listening to them can make you bite your nails to the bone, so instead of linking to anyone like CNN, ABC, NBC, etc ... I chose to let the opening video at the top of the posting handle what has been hours of doom and gloom in MSM, this guy done it in 1 minute, and of course as usual ... the end is near! {:-) I also heard the usual propaganda this week, that those who want to exit the EU are neanderthal type morons, racists, nationalists, nazi's and the usual. I rely on defiance to keep the flames of change burning, bottom line here is this ... many people are sick and tired of the shit, the corporatized neoliberalism of today, the passive ass sucking to the establishment way of business as usual, sick of pay cuts, union busting with jobs being contracted out to cheap foreign labour, austerity, unfair trade deals, pre- paid politics, etc. An establishment of so called democracy and free market, that does nothing but rob and regulate the world, while the thieves doing it deregulate themselves through buying politicians, alwayz needing austerity measures and to garnish the people of anything they can get their bloody hands on ... and with this politipop- culture of thinking ... they have us thinking that this is the way to make us all a big happy familia globally, by screwing the people to make these ingrates at the very top of the food chain a load of money/ capital/ assets. And when folks fight back and resist this type of behaviour, I'm all for them ... I think it's time to impose austerity on these overfed ingrates and garnish their funds and assets! ... which is one of the reasons I started this "Awakening" series, to have a chronology of it. Below I chose Infidel753 who done an excellent piece on this Brexit called "Independence", then some video from RT with views from global market financial expert Patrick Young, Ed Harrison of 'Boom Bust', and Max Keiser of RT's 'Keiser Report'. At the bottom of the posting a little song/ video I wanted to dedicate to our UK friends.

HILLARY CLINTON HELD HOSTAGE: Threats From WALL STREET ... "If You Pick WARREN as VP ... You're Finished!!" ... & RC's Trading a Golden EGG for a Golden OPPORTUNITY ... The "WARREN or CA$H" Edition ... (MONEY N POLITICS PT4)







This posting will serve as Part 4 of the "Money N Politics" series of this journal/ blog ... first below a quick news video clip, and below that a news piece wrote in "Politico" that paints a picture of what Hillary Clinton and her campaign is up against, then a video news clip from FOX with opinions from both Democrats and Republicans. Wall Streets biggest alwayz pressures our leaders with the in- house talk saying that because of the new global economy and risks, volatility in the markets, and since they have the largest money and assets leverage, that they are who needs to dictate how we do business, banking, trade, etc. I will add my part on how I think this kind of threat should be dealt with at the bottom of this posting.

Thomas Hudson Pickering/ Ranch Chimp



This has got totally ridiculous, the too big to fail entities/ billionaires balls are also too big now, and someone needs to castrate them plain and simple. They pulled this same shit when President Obama raised big money from smaller public donations, and this played out just as I expected and wrote it would in the start of this journal years back ... when I stated that "the big money would not let that happen again" ... back then, they/ big banks ... were caught off guard when Senator Obama ran for President and collected hundreds of millions in smaller donations from the people, you can see what they done after that, they played this same game on Obama and forced him to make a choice, their money or no re- election/ 2nd term threats, which is their whole reason to also bust up our unions and everything else, to lower our wealth, because that can lower our expectations and voice, this is one of the reasons why I focus so much on money in this journal/ blog (as someone asked me once why I alwayz talk about money?), because of how importante it is to our strength and maintaining democracy is the reason why. Even though we casually call this a democracy, lets face it, we are already in a form of oligarchy, they control everything damn near and every major media. We need MORE than just the political campaign talk about breaking up big banks and getting money out of politics, we need strict progressive actions, legislation and amending the Constitution, that have been not needed this bad since the Great Depression. Of course their/ oligarchs agenda is pretty clear as far as what they require of our candidates, in this case Secretary Clinton ... they want to let us have a major infrastructure improvement spending bill, BUT, the conditions are that they also get "tax reforms" applied to the international investments bankers and associates ... bottom line is an expansion of tax freebies. And who in Hell do they think they are to decide when we need infrastructure spending or how much? ... they need to take that shit to some underdeveloped 3rd world country who will put up with that shit! Yes, we need a massive infrastructure bill/ plan, but we dont need to ask Wall Street for their approval.

 At the same time these mega entities also want to handle all the spending, bidding and contracting that is involved with a massive infrastructure plan (even though they are not saying this publicly) ... they will want total control over that too, the same as Halliburton had control over all the Iraq invasion and reconstruction contracting, or how they handled all the student loans in the past ... where they make all the rules and terms of conditions, etc ... because they know that our government contracts out everything to save us the time and work, and hoping to get a better deal letting outsiders handle it ... but we never fail to get screwed by these entities history shows. My question to the behemoth banking and Wall Street is this ... "if we pay for our own infrastructure upgrades with our taxes, and do the work ourselves, what in Hell does this have to do with you?" ... so you can contract out workers from Asia to come and do the construction and welding jobs with dirt cheap labour (ABC newsread/ video), so you can pocket more millions of our spending/ costs? ... you alwayz pull this shit, what if we just cut the 'middle man' (you) OUT and manage it all ourselves? We have plenty of folks already in our government that can manage with minimal help from these entities, no Thanx, we will call on you when we need you. As I have also pointed out since the start of this journal, that they are taking this global, look where in Hell we are all at now in the last 8 years, from banking controlled austerity to the bunk trade deals being pounded on our European friends, defense spending, fossil fuel industries, etc ... Fed Chair Janet Yellen (CNBC) yesterday expressing worries before the Senate Banking Committee, that an economic catastrophe of sort may result over this Brexit vote deal coming up, to be honest, I will cheer on the UK if they decide to exit the EU (some consider UK as racists because they want to exit EU, and have more control over their immigration). But this is all we get, one bloody threat after another of "China and Russia" are going to get us ... "ISIS is going to get us if we dont suck up to the Saudi's" ... and no different in these crummy elections, that "Trump will get us" if we dont do everything the billionaires/ Wall Street tell us to do, etc, etc. I am sick of the threats, and sick of those that fear these ingrates and kiss their asses night and day. To me, just the way we react with 'fear', is dumb ... and like any predatory animal ... they can sense fear, and it's makes us and our representatives weaklings instead of building true strength and leadership qualities.

But back to Secretary Clinton and these anonymous threats out of mega- banking/ Wall Street, who are also in fear obviously, because they wont even identify themselves. They of course view Elizabeth Warren as the Devil, this is well known in the Wall Street banking crowd, and Warren is the kind of person we want if anything inspiring folks from the Oval Office to the House of Representatives! ... at least she still has some balls to speak out against these ungrateful parasites. Where in Hell do they get off telling Clinton who she can or cannot choose as her running mate? ... they are banking that Clinton since she is in debt to them, will just do whatever they want, because she is hoping to raise $1.5 billion in this election to beat Trump, they are also banking that she feels some kind of prior responsibility to them to push all sorts of legislation in her first 100 dayz that they been lacking to get through or is new, because Wall Street thinx that even if Clinton wins, they will still have a majority of Republicans in Congress that she will have to negotiate with, and have to move to the right on during that first 100 dayz, they admit this (same as they played on Obama notice). And probably if the TPP dont get through later this year on the sly through the lame duck session or whatever, that she will push it through somehow. The Clinton's and every one of our Presidents over the last 35 years, have already gave Wall Street and the biggest banks enough respect, and been more than considerate and generous with Wall Street, frankly, she dont owe them a damn thing as far as I see. In fact, if I had anything to say to Clinton, I would advise Secretary Clinton to choose someone like Warren as VP (even though I hate losing Warren in the Senate), and to even go with some advice from Warren as VP when it comes to progressive changes that are past due, and will actually improve the image of the Democratic Party, not just to Democrats, but to the American people, and to tell Wall Street to step back some ... and be grateful for all we already do for them.

I would suggest to Secretary Clinton, to pass up the 'golden egg' of their campaign money if they continue to play hardball, and in exchange, use this as a 'golden opportunity'. What I see here is an opportunity for Clinton that comes once in a lifetime/ career. I would suggest that Clinton take advantage of this golden opportunity, and slap Wall Street back, while now also saying ... "if you dont want to finance my campaign ... fine", and expose to the public what Wall Street is trying to pressure her into ... take a progressive stance and bring progressives into her administration while applying immediate action. I would bet that if Clinton done this suddenly, that she would not only surpass Trump and Republicans in the polls with large numbers, and not only be the first woman President, but she would go down in history as one of the greatest reformers of todayz politics since FDR ... I would also bet, that with an announcement like this, that she will defend her stand against Wall Street donors, that millions of Americans will see how sincere this move is, and she would get a major support lift from the American people ON BOTH SIDES, and especially with younger/ new voters, and expose why she is declining to do as told by them, and that millions of Americans would start to send in donations to her campaign just to clean up this cesspool. Secretary Clinton can use this opportunity to make history, and to also be the progressive leader that she alwayz wanted to be, and this would erase her past mistakes as well, because a move like this would trump anything they done in the past, you wont need to walk the footsteps of Obama or to build on what he did, you will create your own movement that will surpass them and several Presidents, including her husband. Here it is Madam Secretary ... you can take the golden egg and do as told ... or you can take this golden opportunity to make history and do good for this country, you have nothing to lose, you are 68 years old, you have your homes paid for, a daughter/ grandchildren/ familia/ friends for support, you have your foundation which will continue and enough money to support yourselves well ... stand up to these ingrates and clamp down some ... and you will win big time in the longrun and in the eyes and support of the American people! ... It's your choice, and has to be your will.


Word Out ....
