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 I would never totally trust the Chinese government when it comes to trying to run a global monopoly for themselves, and their push to gain more strength and territory in Asia), 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 hundred 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)- (INFIDEL753 PT.2)







#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, and this posting will serve "The Awakening", "The End Must Be Near" and "Infidel753" 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)


Image result for we've become an oligarchy jimmy carter




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 ....

GOTTHARD BASE TUNNEL CEREMONY/ VOLKER HESSE 2016






This posting will be to showcase the opening ceremony of the Gotthard Base Tunnel rail/ train route going through the Swiss Alps, which is impressive by itself with the 155mph train ... and the longest deepest tunnel, a 35 miles long underground tunnel over a mile deep beneath the surface, and the time it took to construct this. I did not know a thing about this tunnel or this performance, so Thanx to Infidel753 (blogger) who had a link to this on his website/ link round- up. But the other impressive thing was this extravagant theatrical presentation as the opening ceremony of this tunnel completion, which really caught my eye, and credit here to the 600 performers and the director who orchestrated this, German theatre producer Volker Hesse, this was just a well put together piece, I loved the background of mountains on the outdoor part, and how the tunnel setting and outdoors made the stage, the visuals, choreography, music, the costumes, Swiss culture, lighting and everything else, so I had to have this in this journal's music/ arts honour roll society ... great job! Below some newsread from The Daily Mail, then about an hour of performance below ... anywayz ... Enjoy!

PROGRESSIVE PLATFORM PLANSFORMATION: Flexing the MUSCLE & BUSTLE of The SHAKER MAKER ... The "Sell- Out or Buy- Out" Edition ... (From The FOXHOLE with Bernie PT.32)




**** www.pdamerica.org


**** https://go.berniesanders.com/page/signup/win




This posting will serve as Part 32 of the "From The FOXHOLE with Bernie" series of this journal/ blog ... and Thank You again to Bernie for staying in this race to the finish line and beyond. What inspires this posting is a growing concern among Sanders supporters that Bernie may be selling out by not running as an independent, or running with Jill Stein and the Green Party, I also had a few people here in Dallas tell me that they are voting Green Party now ... and I understand totally with the amount of disrespect they have received from the establishment Democratic Party, and just sick and tired of the same garbage. I dont look at what Bernie is doing as 'selling out', I look at what he is doing as 'buying out' if anything ... I could be wrong about his intentions, but that's how it looks to me ... using his muscle and bustle to shake things up in the Democratic Party and to try to attempt to transform it. Bernie is a mover and shaker who been in the trenches for over a half century, he's no rookie or dummy ... Bernie is in a position to use his muscle as influence, the muscle being the millions of voters that he has inspired and took in, this kind of pressure can get some things done. Regardless of the talk out of some establishment Democratic snobs in the party that say they dont need those millions of Sanders supporters (Washington Post), they can use those voters and they know it ... they just have their noses up their asses is all, and think their shit dont stink. They're concerned ... or there wouldnt be key establishment Democrats from the President on down trying to negotiate in conference with Sanders, and even offering to work on establishing a plan for a strong progressive platform at their convention (one that they couldnt create on their own) ... so this talk for several months that he's nothing and a fringe lunatic that doesnt know how things work, and nothing he sayz can work, or related nonsense is corporate/ banking/ media fed bullshit talk ... believe me, he knows well how shit worx in that cesspool up there, and is exactly why he exposes it. Bernie knows that one of these 2 parties is going to win and dominate the houses in Congress, and he knows that if he did run as an independent/ another party he would have to start from scratch, and much that he done would be blotted out of the mainstream, and he could not make the impact that we need under the current conditions and circumstances in the existing Democratic Party. Bernie is what ignited if anything the Democratic Party, what if he never ran with them? ... what would they have on their platform or agenda? ... just some talk about continuing and building on Obama, besides just pointing out how evil the Republicans are? ... which is sweet and nice ... but much more is needed, the Obama Administration had their 8 years, it's time to move beyond that. Half the issues that Bernie is raising alone would have been avoided if Bernie didnt bring them in the spotlight ... and 'if' we can get half of them addressed in the new administration of Democrats, that is an accomplishment from what they have now.

I support Bernie Sanders decision to do this the way he is, and think that it is the best shot we have at this time ... I am confident in him, and been for several years now, even emailing his office several years back and damn near begging him to run for President. There is a good chance that this can work, there is alot of new people coming into the political arena that have more progressive ideas for change, and even unheard groups like 'Brand New Congress' in the trenches that have great ideas for change across the country on local levels ... basically doing what Republicans done so well with their state to state strategy, which the establishment Democrats have ignored for some time ... thinking that only the northeast corridor of the U.S. is the political center of the universe, and ignoring many of the red/ Republican dominated areas of the country ... face it, the Democratic Party has been so concerned with politics and kissing Wall Street's ass, that they lost touch with the people, and simply moved to the corporate right. If progressives can put together a good platform for the Democratic Party, this should really inspire people across the country to contribute and get involved, get out to vote, etc ... which means in turn that the Democrats should have no problemo winning a majority in the houses as well as winning the Oval Office. What do Republicans have going for them, or to offer, eh? ... I mean, look at their platform and agenda that they made clear for years ... I will give credit though to the Republican Party for at least their honesty, they just come straight out and tell you that they're fixin to screw you, and cut into everything you have and worked for ... from our pensions to our publicly owned amenities/ services to our own properties. If it wasnt for several million die hard old schooler Republicans and the evangelical/ fundamoralists, Hell, they wouldnt even have a pot to piss in ... their idea of good business is only making a shitload of profits for multi- national corporations/ investors, who frankly dont give rats ass about this country except for what they take from us. This move to press progressive changes in Washington will take those millions who Bernie inspired the most to apply muscle and pressure in the Democratic Party, and keep the pressure on them. Getting the money out of politics in this country is very importante, and it CAN be done ... right now the Democrats like the Republicans are forced to rely on corporate/ banking money to run any kind of campaign, it dont have to be that way ... and this talk out of establishment Democrats about getting rid of 'unaccountable campaign money' is a silly worthless sales pitch that dont mean nothing ... all that does, is say they want to force the big money to identify themselves and come out in the open ... it DOES NOT get rid of the money. The voting in this country needs to be at the top of the list as well, I have read up so much on how voting and elections are done across the country and how each and every state has a different complex system that is too easy to manipulate, I couldnt believe just how screwed up it actually is ... I was thinking that this country has to one of the top countries with the most undemocratic and corrupt complicated type system. But there are a whole buffet of other issues  as well that need to be addressed as Bernie points out.

I understand as well as anyone who are Bernie supporters who want to vote another Party, write in a candidate or whatever ... I am disgusted myself with it ... and ashamed of how long I've supported some of these ingrates, I been voting in this establishment crap for 40 years and been blogging about this cesspool for 8 years ... you should vote whats in your heart, I honestly dont know how I will vote, and this is the first time in 40 years of voting, that I have no idea how I will vote, that shows how lousy the choices are. But I think careful thought should be given to what Bernie proposes, if Bernie ran as an independent, I would vote for him in a heartbeat ... but he is NOT, and for a reason, due to the current condition and circumstances ... and right now I am going to trust his judgement. If you vote Democrat as a Sanders movement supporter, you will at least have a chance to have progressive ideas heard and negotiated on a national level stage, instead of just social media, you will also be still supporting the Bernie revolutionary movement ... and he is pushing this harder than anyone and has done so much ... he deserves the respect and support for all he has done. If you can get this Democratic Party elected in a majority, you have several progressive watchdogs that will apply pressure on the floor now during legislation, and hold folks feet to the fire while exposing them, and you will get mainstream coverage as well as social/ alternative media  ... in 4 years time, you will be able to see through their/ Democrats actions in Congress and the Oval Office, if they are for real or just go back to playing games as usual ... after that 4 years if they have NOT done an efficient job ... you go to a 'Plan B' and walk. More from Bernie below ... and Happy Fathers Day to Bernie as well!

Thomas Hudson Pickering/ Ranch Chimp



This posting was inspired by the victims of the Orlando Pulse Club attack ... so I suggest to read the top link first from the Orlando Sentinel to find out about them ... and my condolences to all. I know alot of folks are blaming the AR-15 on this (and no ... it is NOT an 'automatic assault weapon' ... it is a 'semi- automatic rifle'), the shooter is who's to blame and the radical religion that he embraced ... he may have even had his own inner battles with his own sexuality, and between the religion, his failed marriage and his personal sexual feelings, could have all contributed to it. Some of these religious inspired views and cultures ARE radical, period, whether it's Islam or it's ancient rival cousin Christianity ... I dont hold it against the ancient writings either, but how it is used, interpreted and taught to follow in generations of cultures ... I would never try to sugar coat or re- write a book, whether it is the Quran, Holy Bible, Crystal Tablet of Set ... the Satanic Bible/ Rituals or even politically inspired books like Mein Kampf, ... these and others are the kind of books that line my bookshelf as well. But the religious clergies and their political pals for power and personal reasons of some kind are what destroys the art, literature and cultures. New cultures come and go throughout history, I dont see where killing homosexuals is acceptable in our current society of today ... advocating to do this to our citizens is not acceptable, it doesnt matter what some ancient middle eastern culture and religion done ... how would you feel if homosexuals decided to do unto you as you do unto them, eh? If you are gay/ lesbian/ bisexual/ transgender ... understand that these folks and their religious ideology are your ENEMY ... no reason to debate with them and try to get them to understand ... they DONT want to understand you, and some want you dead, you shouldnt have a damn thing to do with them ... you havent a bloody damn thing in common with them, except that you're flesh and blood like them. It is not natural or what you may call God given 'reason' if you are a bloody victim, to love the bloody jaws that want to rend you limb from limb ... it is an eye for an eye that is natural. The kid in the above video has no reason to try to explain to his parents what he cant do nothing about ... they chose to disown and condemn him with their Christian wayz ... which is the same as aborting your own child. Or to try to understand and make excuses for a parent like this piece of shit Egyptian immigrant here in the Dallas area, Yaser Said, who murdered his 2 teen daughters as an honour killing, then fled Texas ... currently on the FBI's 10 most wanted list.

It's also political season 2016 too, and as usual, the politicians are using this incident to highside and talk shit ... sadly in our country, the only break from having to hear about Clinton and Trump 24/ 7 in the news, came only when this tragedy happened. I was listening to Donald Trump yesterday giving a speech in New Hampshire I believe(?) ... he was pointing out how this is all about radical Islam, and he refuses to be politically correct, which is fine, however, he also was upholding Christianity, and clumping it all in with love and the LGBT community, as if the Christian religious beliefs is all about loving gay people ... Trump's crowd/ following obviously dont think so, when they went silent the minute he talked about the wrong done to gays, but cheered every time he mentioned radical Islam ... that's because many that follow Trump have lesser and disrespectful feelings about gay people, but dont want to say it ... they will cheer on the evil of Islam, and turn their head on the evil of their own Christianity. The other popular Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, had her own sales pitch as well ... and much about the AR-15 that killed and injured these folks ... yet not much talk about these religious ideologies ... what I find most hypocritical out of her ... is that the Clinton's accept millions in donations/ gifts from countries like Saudi Arabia, even funding her campaign, while she speaks of gayz and womens rights, look at what some of her donor friends do to women and homosexuals in their countries ... how in Hell could you even accept money from people as gifts that do this and are totally against your values and culture, and tell your own people in America, that you represent their best interests and are their champion? ... and NO ... I dont think Donald Trump would turn down millions from these middle eastern parasites either, this is where him and Clinton seem to have something in common, they both suck the asses and sleep with the same circles of money. Pastor Steve Anderson below sayz he dont advocate violence on gay people or murder, and that he obeys the law of the land ... well ... the law of the land allows gay marriage and protections from discrimination ... so why dont you follow the law of the land? ... yet he like Pastor Curtis Knapp wants the government to execute people for homosexuality, which is common in the countries of Islam that he condemns for their beliefs, so you are saying that you would prefer Islam Sharia Law for homosexuals, and Christian Laws for everything else. Anderson also condemns animal rights/ protections openly in his sermons, and also calls Iceland a land of bastards, because of children that are born of unwed mothers, so he condemns the children as well for something that they have no control over. I just dont see any excuse for people or politicians to relentlessly suck the asses of these Pastors or Imams or any of their religious cults. Some video and read below ... Word Out ....

U.$. DRUG LORD$: The 45 Year EVOLUTION, POLLUTION & GATEWAY ADDICTION of the American & Congressional U.$. DRUG CARTEL ... The "ANNIVERSARY of MISERY" Edition ... (PROFITS & POTFITS PT.2)- - (INCARCERATED AMERICAN PT.28)- - (WAR ON DRUGS PT.2)






President Nixon Declares Drug Abuse "Public Enemy Number One" ... Thanx to RICHARD NIXON FOUNDATION





This posting will be to highlight the American Drug War 45 year anniversary, since it's been that long since President Richard Nixon introduced it in his speech above in June of 1971. And this is not just the worx of Nixon, he had to respond as President to a concern, every President ... Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, H.W.Bush Sr, W.J.Clinton, W.Bush Jr and Obama has contributed to the growth of this, and only 2 parties in American politics have pushed all the legislation ... the Democrats and Republicans. This posting will also serve 3 series of this journal/ blog ... "Profits & Potfits", "Incarcerated American" & "War on Drugs" ... and this is another issue that there can never be enough focus, political pressure and media on in these times. While we alwayz hear in the news about the war on drugs, wars on other nations to occupy them usually for corporate/ banking/ political reasons, wars on what should be basic rights in any so called democracy ... or even a half- assed democracy like America, or many of the other wars that are manufactured and directed against citizens of our country and of the globe, the talk of who our number one enemies are, whether it's a terror/ resistance group that we inspired, armed and financed in some way ... or these so called drug cartels that we also create from our actions, etc ... our true enemy are our own legislators and leaders that are drug cartels by definition in their actions. First of all, there are FAR MORE effective wayz to deal with the drug issue in this country ... one of several examples that come to mind would be Seattle's approach with their LEAD (Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion) alternative method, this saves taxpayers a bundle, it allows police to not have to waste time on jailing/ booking to where they can focus on actual crime and protecting the community, it reduces unnecessary incarceration and has some control over the addiction issue and actual rehabilitation. The system we have now simply is out of control expense, and feeds people through a system that keeps them in a cycle and environment that is destructive to the addict as well as our country and communities. This system we have of dealing with the drug issue, has been simply a cash cow for people exploiting this to line their pockets with our tax money, and legislation that allows this. Below I chose some videos and links from mainstream and alternative media that show the evolution of pollution that this created simply because of our monetary gateway addiction to these manufactured wars ... and where we stand 45 years later after this particular war and cesspool of misery that it made our nation and other nations fall into. After I will add my part to it ....

Thomas Hudson Pickering/ Ranch Chimp & daughter Bear



These dayz you have more lobbies than ever to fight against the legalization of a simple and harmless herb/ product like marijuana, it's not the parents these dayz complaining about something like pot/ marijuana so much, it's the beer/ alcohol distributors, prison guard and police unions, pharmaceutical corporations, low level bullshit defense attorneyz who make easy money off bundling low level plea bargain drug cases, private/ corporate prisons milking local and federal tax dollars ... a long list of folks that want to have things like marijuana illegal. But due to the mass corporatization and addiction to squeeze that extra buck/ dollar ... they have spread this addiction far and wide globally over the years, now many countries are wondering if they should have even followed America's advice and manufactured war on drugs, American citizens are sick and tired of the money milking, the asset forfeiture laws and their thin grounds that make it where anyone, even innocent of criminal drug activity, can have their money, property or children taken. We have made it a common practice, that if you dont have a law enforcement drug task force that is official or funded by federal, state, local tax dollars ... well Hell ... just create a task force in the name of the classic 'good vs. evil' excuse to focus on new wayz to rip off citizens of their property and money, and lock their kidz up on bunk charges to rake in more revenues on top of it ... so you created a 'gateway drug' of addiction to making a buck/ dollar ONLY, nothing else ... nothing of any benefit overall has come out of this for societies except for those that peddle/ push these policies for their profiteers. We have pharmaceutical companies raking in billions nowadayz peddling their opiate based drugs and amphetamines to millions, of course all 'good' drugs ... not 'evil' ones ... then when the person runs out of money, insurance or whatever, and they cant pay the over- inflated prices no more of the pharma drug ... they have to run to the street to get that cheap bump/ fix of meth or heroin ... the pharma company dont give a shit, they're doing what they are supposed to do, which is maximizing profits for their shareholders, the same as the private prison industry that makes a fortune over incarcerating folks on related addictive or recreational usage/ possession/ transport/ delivery. Many politicians dont give a shit or cant stomach to think of it and turn their heads, because they need to peddle the legislation to get politically financed ... nor are some of them even aware of the reality and condition in society that they help create.

But 45 years after clearly shows that the whole thing and policies have been a total failure like much else and an enormous waste of money. Some folks like lobbyist Paul Curry of the California Correctional Supervisor's Association use the classic excuse, that if marijuana wasnt dangerous, the federal government would have changed the law ... an excuse that you would have to be totally brainwashed or high on drugs to buy, on the other hand they are quick to keep the federal government out of their lives and states on other issues, so the hypocrisy is enormous as well. As far as the jobs it creates for law enforcement and revenues it creates, and those detention officers ... there are plenty of jobs available for detention services and law enforcement, and still plenty of work for these low budget plea deal bundle attorneyz ... even without the war on drugs, so that is fear bullshit as well, or people whining that it cant be done, remember, that people who alwayz make excuses as to why something cant be done, are people who dont get anything done. Also, drug addiction is a disease and illness, marijuana doesnt fall into that category though ... and marijuana can be used for not only medicinal purposes, but recreation too ... so its damn good business, more harmless than alcohol and generates plenty of tax revenues. There is also plenty of business expansion and job creation with serious drug problem needs, in having more social services/ agencies to help people with serious drug addictions, it's a 'business' too, so you dont need to lock them up, as a matter of fact, there would be a decrease in crimes across the board with treatment instead of incarceration ... penal institutions should be for crimes, not for diseases/ illnesses, so the whole approach to the drug issue is all ass- backwards, and fiscally irresponsible as far as where spending needs to be added and where cuts need to be made. Credit to those states who have made progress on legalization and decriminalization of marijuana, it simply needs to be all legalization though on a national level. New legislation needs to be force- fed on government, after all, that's their job ... and reform of all the laws that incarcerate folks on non- criminal offenses, 3 strikes out laws and mandatory minimum sentences, should only be for serious habitual crimes, not everything that they applied them to, so this is what needs immediate atencion since were all concerned over spending and the problems that comes from drugs. There now are growing numbers of movements and awareness with people, that are starting to focus on this stronger than ever ... Hell ... this crap has went on for over 4 decades and dont even serve any purpose that it was meant to. So the real war like on much of our other issues should focus on a war against those in government that legislate this rubbish in our own country.

INSIDE SAUDI ARABIA/ EMPIRE FILES: America's Baloney Matrimony & OILY ASS WORSHIP FETISH of Saudi SUPERIORITY ... The "Hypocrisy & Theocracy" Edition ... (ARAB WORLD TENSIONS PT.8) & (ABBY MARTIN PT.2)






This posting will serve as Part 8 of "Arab World Tensions" and Part 2 of "Abby Martin" series for this journal/ blog (I been following Abby's work for several years and wanted to have a series in this journal of her) ... to look at a piece Abby done on Saudi Arabia and the decades old history of the United States marriage to this theocracy, the constant fetishistic ass kissing behind oil ... and the rest of the baloney that comes out of our political mouthpiece puppets here. The Arab lobby power here in the U.S. is incredible just by itself, which is behind all the business we do with them and their influence on even our elections and Presidential candidates, yet, we havent a thing in common with these folks besides money/ oil/ arms business interests ... it's one thing to have a business relationship with someone that you may not have much in common with, but another thing to give 24/ 7/ 365 ass worship service to them, hold hands, wine and dine with them ... and actually praise them for their so called reform on human rights or whatever else related. The hypocrisy of our politicians is incredible as well ... they tell us how they are for rights of women, gays, workers, etc ... then they condemn people like ISIS for beheading executions, rape, oppression, dictating, etc, then praise another country and regime doing the same thing, and call them their best friends out of the other side of their mouth and treat them and their theocratic values as superior to us, nothing beats the American bullshit that comes out of some of the piece of shit politicians that we have so called representing us and our country, many of which are just weak ass kissing individuals, and of no value to our own country and people ... and in my view are an embarrassment to our own country. Some may think that we may influence folks like Saudi Arabia to change their wayz, perhaps be even halfway of a democracy or whatever ... after dealing with and supporting them 110% for well over a half century, how much do you think they have changed? Is this what we call sharing and spreading democracy? ... so you can see my point on just how full of shit and hypocritical America is, eh? Some American's will think I am just naive, and dont understand how the world worx ... which is fine ... but I question "why is this acceptable if we are advocates of freedom and democracy?" ... and "why in Hell should we support it?".

I met a guy several years ago here in Dallas that I'm still in contact with, he does pretty well here as an entrepreneur of sort, basically he buys homes/ townhomes in the Dallas- Fort Worth area and leases them out, before he came here he had worked for the Saudi government for many years, and over a decade of that service in Saudi Intelligence ... but when we first met ... I told this man (I wont mention his name), I figured that Saudi Arabia must be a great place to live as far as living standards and the abundance of wealth, impressive world class infrastructure, college kids driving import luxury vehicles, etc, etc ... he told me that what I read in American newspapers and see on the tele is not what Saudi Arabia is about and basically a smokescreen. But what he told me of this country as far as the extreme poverty, heavy oppression and much else was shocking to me ... I never would have thought this from what little I knew about Saudi Arabia that we see in the mainstream news ... we talk alot about politics and about what goes on in that part of the world, so it has been interesting and enlightening for me. My wife many years ago touched on it in small chat with me as far as women's rights only, my wife spent a couple years in Iran (Tehran) until the late 1970's revolution when she left, but visited Saudi Arabia too. When I talk to this guy about our ass kissing to some of these regimes in the middle east and the Saudi's, or our interventions/ occupations/ wars and related, he agrees with me ... but when I talk with some Americans and give my views ... many look at me in a negative way ...they seem to feel a need to kiss their asses too, and I dont fit in with their neo- liberated 2 faced views I guess. I frankly dont see how we can praise these folks, it's bad enough that we have to defensively support them and beg to do business with them ... no, I am not understanding when it comes to these things or their culture ... in fact ... I dont want it anywhere around me, I do not have values anything close to that, I wouldnt support any government who would treat my mom, wife, daughter, friends like this if they had their way.

SPIRITS OF SAN FRANCISCO: "HANGAR 1/ FOG POINT VODKA" ... Bay Area FOG for a FUN FILLED Evening ... (I'LL DRINK TO THAT PT.2)




***** hangarone.com/fogpoint/ ... (see how they make it!)




Caley Shoemaker/ head distiller



I have to give these folks credit for a great idea ... and the idea inspired by water conservation in California? ... they came up with a unique product, all proceeds go to a worthy cause in the state ... and a bunch of folks will have some fun filled evenings behind it all ... I mean ... what more can you ask for? ... now that's what I call the true spirit(s) of San Francisco! It never would have even crossed my mind remotely to use fog to make vodka, but also this is a limited edition, they captured enough fog for 2400 bottles, quite a recipe too, on all the flavours they can capture from the area in the process collecting the fog ... but ... what can this inspire, eh? ... perhaps Canadian Whisky made from Newfoundland fog? ... only the spirits know! But I'll drink to that ... wouldnt mind having a bottle of this myself!
