American Demise : Chainsaws, Guns And Blenders - 2016 Republicans Go Viral With Crazy Antics

Plumbing the depths of pandering to illiterate American braindeads, freakish "candidates" debut in "reality" presidential campaign circus follies

With the 2016 presidential campaigns already underway and real estate mogul Donald Trump sucking up all the media focus, other Republican candidates have resorted to some rather… untraditional ways to attract attention.


Top clown: Miss Lindsey Graham
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, for example, has taken to towing a chainsaw with him on campaign stops in order to demonstrate his willingness to “rip up” the US tax code. At a campaign stop in South Carolina on Friday, the libertarian senator pulled the tool out to dramatically demonstrate his anger against the massive code currently on the books. Previously, Paul released a video showcasing suggesting three different ways to destroy the tax code: tossing it into a fire, throwing it into a wood chipper and, of course, using a chainsaw on it. 


Sporting a “Detroit Republican” t-shirt, he even used the chainsaw to rip the documents down the middle.

"Hey I'm Rand Paul and I'm trying to kill the tax code — all 70,000 pages of it," Paul said in the video.

As part of his platform, Paul is advocating for a one-page tax code featuring a flat tax of 14.5 percent.


Chainsaw chump; Rand Paul goes over the edge

Other candidates are also upping their antics dramatically. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas recently came out with a video showing him “cooking” bacon with a machine gun.

In the video, Cruz wraps strips of bacon around the smoking barrel of an AR-15 while at a gun range and then wraps a layer of tin foil over it. He then fires multiple rounds of ammunition and, when done, peels off a piece of cooked bacon and eats it.


Bacon Boy: Psycho Ted Cruz

“There are few things I enjoy more on the weekends than cooking breakfast with the family. Of course in Texas, we cook bacon a little differently than most folks,” says Cruz at the start of the footage.

Unlike Paul’s chainsaw video, however, Cruz’s does not even attempt to signify any kind of policy position.


Clinton having problems getting into the "spirit" of things; looking down the barrel at more congressional hearings it may just be time for another "stroke"

Finally, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina posted a video titled: ‘How to destroy your cell phone.’

In this video, Graham is seen submitting his phone to numerous forms of battery. He drops the phone in a blender, hits it with a baseball bat, smacks it with a golf ball and strikes it with a butcher’s knife. He even sets it on fire.




Although it sounds as ridiculous as Cruz’s bacon video, it was actually a response to the fact that Donald Trump revealed the senator’s phone number in public and told people they should “try it.”

It’s possible that these attempts at going viral will continue as candidates with less publicity will continue to try and generate publicity.

The Woman That Facebook Censored : Mom With Rare Skin Condition Told She Can't Post Photo Because it Might Receive "High Negative "Feedback'"

It's now common knowledge that Facebook uses "selective" censorship, deleting images that already meet "guidelines" while allowing porn to be published as long as it is "politically correct" and submitted by Facebook approved perverts; Facebook has locked the accounts of The 5th Estate and continues to deny access to delete despite verification using already confirmed passwords and phone numbers

A woman who suffers from a painful condition that leaves her skin covered in red blotches bravely decided to share an inspirational picture of her bare face for the first time - only to have Facebook tell her that the image would receive "high negative feedback."


Lisa Goodman-Helfand, 40, a teacher and blogger from the Chicago area, was diagnosed with scleroderma, an autoimmune disease characterized by the hardening of the skin and connective tissues, when she was 10-years-old. 

Symptoms of the chronic condition vary from person to person, but for Lisa it means her face is covered with raw, red blotches, which she usually covers with make-up. 



But after connecting with fellow blogger and scleroderma sufferer Chanel White, whose face remains pristine as the disease hardens her organs, the mother-of-two was ready to share the image of her bare face for the first time. As a reminder that you should never judge a book by its cover, Lisa posted a side-by-side image of her and Chanel on Facebook, however, when she went to promote the article with a $20 ad, she received an automated message saying the photo had been rejected.

'Your ad wasn’t approved because it includes “before and after” images, or other images showing unexpected or unlikely results. It’s also recommended that you avoid focusing on specific body parts, because these images typically receive high negative feedback,' the message read. 


Censored by Facebook: Lisa Goodman-Helfand
After reviewing Facebook's policies, Lisa responded by explaining that she is trying to raise awareness for scleroderma, noting that the two pictures represent the different ways the disease affects patients. 

'This is not a “before and after” type ad,' she wrote. 'It is a serious article on a serious disease.' The effects of the disease can range from very mild to life-threatening depicting on which parts of the body are affected, and Lisa told Daily Mail Online that she wanted her picture with Chanel to show that 'you don't know what someone else is going through'.


She explained that, to a stranger, she may look ill, but she is relatively healthy on the inside, while Chanel appears to be the picture of health in her photos, but in reality her battle with scleroderma is affecting her organs and leaves her unable to eat. 

'Chanel, she would trade places with me in a millisecond,' Lisa said of the variations of their disease. 'I can put make-up on and walk out the door every day and live my life.' 

Despite her explanation, Lisa received another message, this time from 'Rachel' from the Facebook Ad Team, she was once again told that 'before and after' images weren't allowed.

'I can’t describe the emotional blow that accompanied Facebook’s rejection of my ad,' she wrote on her blog, noting: 'I’ve been advised to “avoid focusing on specific body parts, because these images typically receive high negative feedback". That said body part is my face.'

'Does anyone else see the irony in my face violating Facebook’s ad policy?' she asked. 'Would my scleroderma-ravaged elbows, or fingers have been less offensive?'

Lisa shared her story with Yahoo Canada, and when the outlet contacted Facebook her ad request was later approved. However, when she went to boost the Yahoo article about her story with an ad that too was denied. 

The writer told Daily Mail Online that if Yahoo didn't intervene, the story would have most likely ended with her crying in her bathroom. 


Nothing to hide: Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease characterized by the hardening of the skin and connective tissues, and Lisa uses make-up to cover the red blotches on her face

Lisa, who uses make-up to cover the blotches on her skin, never shared a photo of her bare skin before she posted the image of her an Chanel. 

'This is the first time I have ever publicly shared a photo of my bare face,' she wrote on her blog. 'Some have warned me against doing so, saying the internet trolls are going to have a field day. I am putting my faith in humanity and hoping this will get more positive reactions than negative.' 

Lisa told Daily Mail Online that she received a 'tremendous' amount of love and support, noting that the article was shared 600 times. 

She explained that no one knew she was going to do it, not even her husband David, because she knew they would try to talk her out of it out of fear that she would get hurt by online bullies. 


Publishing porn is just fine for selected Facebook users, but when it comes down to those nasty, inconvenient reminders of the real world out there Facebook wants nothing to do with it

However, acquaintances, former classmates, and even an old boyfriend responded kindly to her post, and more importantly strangers around the world connected with her message. It was that outpouring of positivity that inspired her to expand the reach of her message with a Facebook ad in the first place. 

'I am not out wage war against Facebook,' Lisa explained. 'I want to use the tools of Facebook to launch my campaign [Face Off For Scleroderma] worldwide.'

In order to kick start her campaign, Lisa is asking people to take bare faced selfies of themselves on Sunday and share them on social media using the #sclerodermaselfies. Proceeds from her campaign will be distributed evenly between the Scleroderma Research Foundation and the Scleroderma Foundation

And while Lisa never had any intention of publicly battling Facebook, she said her struggle with the social networking site is inadvertently helping her raise awareness.


Raising awareness: The 40-year-old from the Chicago suburbs, who is pictured with her husband David, wanted to promote the image with a Facebook ad because people were connecting with her message

'This is getting more exposure for my disease than I would have ever gotten with a $20 Facebook ad,' she noted. 

Lisa revealed that she had shared the image of her bare face with major magazines while pitching her story because it is an 'attention getter', however, she was often told that her story was 'not the right fit' or 'would not appeal to readers'.

'I thought this was a story that would resonate with people,' she explained, noting that she believes the rejections were based on the fact that they don't want to 'promote ugliness in a beauty magazine'.

Lisa finally decided that it was up to her tell her own story. She posted the photo of her and Chanel just a few weeks just before the launch of her campaign and the release of her e-book Does This Hospital Gown Come With Sequins?, which tells the story of her near-death experience after the birth of her second child.




A portion of all proceeds from book sales will be donated to the Scleroderma Research Foundation and the Scleroderma Foundation, but Lisa ultimately wants to use her activism to show children that they can take a negative situation and turn it into a positive one. 

Lisa has the famous Wayne Gretzky quote, 'You miss 100 per cent of the shots you don't take' hanging in her classroom, and that is the message she wants to share with the world. 

'Everyone needs to take their best shot and if you get rejected you get rejected,' she explained. 

As for Facebook, Lisa said she would love to talk to an executive about the company re-examining the language used when referencing body parts in automated messages to 'bring back an element of humanity'. 


Get the monkey off your back: Kick the Facebook habit

She would also like to see people who contested ad content twice be able to speak with an 'actual human' the third time around.

And if Facebook wants to make its previous rejections of her photos up to her, she would really love if they created a feature that would allow users to put a teal overlay over their profile pictures because it is the color of scleroderma.

Daily Mail Online has contacted Facebook for comment.

U.S. DIA Head : “It Was A Willful Decision To Support An Insurgency By Salafists, Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood”

The DIA must be under the gun to make this kind of admission; Obama criminals will face treason, war crimes trials when the entire, sordid story is fully exposed  

WASHINGTON'S BLOG
08/07/2015

An internal Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document produced recently shows that the U.S. knew that the actions of “the West, Gulf countries and Turkey” in Syria might create a terrorist group like ISIS and an Islamic caliphate.


While the powers-that-be have tried to downplay the significance of the document, the former head of the DIA – Lieutenant General Michael Flynn – just confirmed its importance.

By any measure, Flynn was a top-level American military commander. Flynn served as:

The Director of the U.S. Intelligence Agency;



The Director of intelligence for Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the main military agency responsible for targeting Al-Qaeda and other Islamic terrorists;

The Commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance;

The Chair of the Military Intelligence Board;

Assistant director of national intelligence.


Flynn confirmed the authenticity of the document in a new interview, and said:

[Interviewer] So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?

[Flynn] I don’t know that they turned a blind eye, I think it was a decision. I think it was a willful decision.

[Interviewer] A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?


[Flynn] It was a willful decision to do what they’re doing.

Tyler Drumheller, CIA Officer Who Exposed U.S. Reliance On Discredited Iraq Source "Curveball" Dies At 63

How convenient, and predictable; apparently Drumheller wasn't quite "discredited" enough to keep him from getting offed by the CIA  

WASHINGTON POST
By Greg Miller
08/06/2015

Tyler S. Drumheller, a high-level CIA officer who publicly battled agency leaders over one of the most outlandish claims in the U.S. case for war with Iraq, died Aug. 2 at a hospital in Fairfax County. He was 63.


The cause was complications from pancreatic cancer, said his wife, Linda Drumheller. Mr. Drumheller held posts in Africa and Europe over a 26-year career during which the CIA’s focus shifted from the Cold War to terrorist threats. He rose to prominent positions at CIA headquarters, serving as chief of the European division at a time when the agency was abducting al-Qaeda suspects on the continent and U.S. allies there faced a wave of terrorist plots.


But he was best known publicly for his role in exposing the extent to which a key part of the administration’s case for war with Iraq had been built on the claims of an Iraqi defector and serial fabricator with the fitting code name “Curveball.”

In contrast to Hollywood’s depiction of spies as impossibly elegant and acrobatic, Mr. Drumheller was a bulky, rumpled figure who often seemed oblivious to the tufts of dog hair on his clothes.


Drumheller knew just a little too much
“I always thought of him as an overfed George Smiley,” said Bill Murray, a former CIA colleague, referring to the character in John le CarrĂ© spy novels known for his espionage acumen but unassuming appearance.

Mr. Drumheller spent the bulk of his career as an undercover officer seeking to avoid public attention. But after retiring in 2005, he emerged as a vocal critic of the George W. Bush administration’s use of deeply flawed intelligence to build support for its decision to invade Iraq in 2003.



Curveball, who had defected to Germany in the late 1990s, was the primary source behind the administration’s assertions that Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq had developed biological weapons laboratories — lethal germ factories supposedly built on wheels or rails to evade detection.

The claim was included in Bush’s 2003 State of the Union speech as well as then-Secretary of State Colin Powell’s presentation to the United Nations designed to marshal international support for intervention in Iraq.

speech to UN justifying the invasion of Iraq
Mr. Drumheller later came forward to say that he had learned early on that German authorities had grave doubts about Curveball’s credibility. In his book “On the Brink” (2006), written with Elaine Monaghan, he recounted the Curveball debacle in detail, noting that his German counterpart had cautioned that Curveball “could be a fabricator. He’s a very erratic character.” 

Mr. Drumheller said he relayed that warning to top CIA officials, and even attempted to strike the language on mobile labs from an early draft of Powell’s speech, only to be stunned to learn that the text was subsequently restored.


In “On the Brink,” Mr. Drum-heller described feeling his “heart sinking” as he watched Powell’s speech.
