CEO Of Rosneft Compares Oil Market Manipulation Which “Doesn’t Reflect Reality” To Gold Price Rigging

It was a little under two years ago when, when oil and gas prices were both surging, Obama decided to punish the evil speculators whose fault the rise of oil was when he announced he would “give the Commodity Futures Trading Commission authority to increase the amount of money that a trader must put up to back a trading position. The administration officials said such authority could help limit disruptions in energy markets.” Needless to say, Obama did not punish the world’s central banks for flooding the globe with excess liquidity, which by definition would end up in less than “productive” ventures such as barrels of oil. Over the weekend, it was the opposite, when instead of blaming speculators for soaring prices, none other than the CEO of Russia’s largest publicly-traded oil company, Rosneft, in not so many words, accused speculators of sending the price of oil plunging.

12 Numbers Which Prove That Americans Are Sick And Tired Of Politics As Usual

The American people are increasingly waking up to the fact that nothing ever seems to change in Washington D.C. no matter which political party is in power.  In fact, as you will see later on in this article, an all-time high 53 percent of all Americans believe that neither party “represents the American people”.  Over the past several decades, we have sent a Bush, a Clinton, another Bush and an Obama to the White House, but the policies coming out of Washington have remained pretty much the same the entire time.  The mainstream media would have us believe that the Republicans and the Democrats are constantly fighting like cats and dogs, but the truth is that the Republicans want to take us to the same place that the Democrats want to take us – just a little more slowly perhaps.  And behind the scenes, Republicans and Democrats have a […] Read More

2013: The Most Outrageous, Inaccurate Right-Wing Smear of Obamacare

There are many things wrong with comparing a healthcare rollout to a hurricane. The main one: Nobody died. It’s one thing for former George W. Bush flack and Sarah Palin staffer Nicolle Wallace to make a silly and self-serving link between the troubled rollout of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act and her boss’s handling of, wait for it, Hurricane Katrina. It’s another for the New York Times to pick up the cudgel and seriously make a comparison between the Affordable Care Act’s acknowledged problems and the deadly 2005 tragedy. But that’s what the paper did Friday morning, with Michael D. Shear’s “Health Law Rollout’s Stumbles Draw Comparisons to Bush’s Hurricane Response.” Other media are using the Times piece to make the same comparison. ABC’s “Good Morning America” did a whole segment on it; as I write, the chyron on MSNBC asks “Obama’s Katrina?” Shear put it this way: The disastrous rollout of [Obama’s} […] Read More

2004: FAA Managers Destroyed 9/11 Tape

Recording Contained Accounts of Communications With Hijacked Planes By Sara Kehaulani Goo Washington Post Staff Writer Thursday, May 6, 2004; 6:16 PM Six air traffic controllers provided accounts of their communications with hijacked planes on Sept. 11, 2001, on a tape recording that was later destroyed by Federal Aviation Administration managers, according to a government investigative report issued today. It is unclear what information was on the tape because no one ever listened to, transcribed or duplicated it, the report by the Department of Transportation inspector general said. The report concluded that the FAA generally cooperated with the independent panel investigating the terrorist attacks by providing documents about its activities on Sept. 11, but the actions of two FAA managers “did not, in our view, serve the interests of the FAA, the Department [of Transportation] or the public.” The report was conducted at the request of Sen. John McCain […] Read More

2005: FAMILY DEMANDS THE TRUTH

New inquiry may expose events that led to Pat Tillman’s death – Robert Collier, Chronicle Staff Writer Sunday, September 25, 2005 The battle between a grieving family and the U.S. military justice system is on display in thousands of pages of documents strewn across Mary Tillman’s dining room table in suburban San Jose. As she pores through testimony from three previous Army investigations into the killing of her son, former football star Pat Tillman, by his fellow Army Rangers last year in Afghanistan, she hopes that a new inquiry launched in August by the Pentagon’s inspector general finally will answer the family’s questions: Were witnesses allowed to change their testimony on key details, as alleged by one investigator? Why did internal documents on the case, such as the initial casualty report, include false information? When did top Pentagon officials know that Tillman’s death was caused by friendly fire, and why did they delay for five weeks […] Read More

Mitt Romney’s Abortion Business Made Him $50M

by Karen Fish Truth is stranger than fiction. You can’t make this stuff up because nobody would believe you. Mitt Romney’s business record is his chief qualification to be President, he says. Did you know that Mitt Romney’s business was the abortion business, from which he made $50 Million burning aborted fetuses through his company Stericycle? When Mitt Romney was sworn in as Governor of Massachusetts on Jan. 2, 2003 he was Pro Choice. Mitt Romney was so pro choice that he was in the abortion business. Did Mitt Romney campaign when he ran for Governor that his chief qualification to be Governor of Massachusetts was that he was the owner of the largest aborted fetus incineration company in the United States of America? Mitt Romney’s Romneycare, the blueprint for Obamacare provided tax payer funding for abortions, which Obamacare does not. Mitt Romney introduced Romneycare to get the taxpayers […] Read More
