Who Gets Food Stamps? White People, Mostly

FOOD STAMPS


WASHINGTON -- Gene Alday, a Republican member of the Mississippi state legislature, apologized last week for telling a reporter that all the African-Americans in his hometown of Walls, Mississippi, are unemployed and on food stamps.
"I come from a town where all the blacks are getting food stamps and what I call 'welfare crazy checks,'" Alday said to a reporter for The Clarion-Ledger, a Mississippi newspaper, earlier this month. "They don't work."
Nationally, most of the people who receive benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program are white. According to 2013 data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which administers the program, 40.2 percent of SNAP recipients are white, 25.7 percent are black, 10.3 percent are Hispanic, 2.1 percent are Asian and 1.2 percent are Native American.
In the two congressional districts that overlap Alday's state legislature district, more African-Americans than whites receive food stamps, according to USDA data.
Twenty-three million households and 47 million Americans received benefits on an average month in 2013; enrollment declined slightly to 22 million households and 46 million individuals in 2014. Three-quarters of those households included a child, an elderly person or someone with a disability. The average monthly benefit per household was $274 in 2013 and $256 last year.
Republicans are conducting a review of nutrition assistance with an eye toward figuring out how to nudge more people into the workforce. In recent years Republicans have lamented that a growing share of recipients are able-bodied adults without children -- a group that made up 10.2 percent of beneficiaries in 2011, up from 6.6 percent before the onset of the Great Recession in 2007. (The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities estimates that 1 million people will be kicked off the rolls by next year as states reimpose time limits on childless, non-disabled adults.)
Nearly one-third of food stamp beneficiaries lived in a household where at least one member had some earned income in 2013. Different states have different eligibility rules for the program, but federal law puts the upper income limit at 200 percent of the poverty line, currently $20,090 for a family of three. Many SNAP recipients qualify based on their participation in another means-tested program, such as Medicaid or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.

When The Mystery Is No More.....Babylon Is Fallen !!!

                           

"Slavery is a crime! Then America is a criminal. Kidnapping is a crime! Then America is a criminal. Robbery is a crime! Then America is a criminal to bring us from our native land and people, and rob us of a connection to our native land and people. You have Irish here; they have a connection! You have Italians here, you have Greeks—everybody has a connection. Ours was cut off. That’s a crime.
Black man and woman: You don’t wear the names of your parents. We wear the names of our former slave masters and their children. That’s a crime. Other people can speak words of their native language or mother tongue, but for us, mother gone, father gone; motherless child sees a hard time. That’s a crime. Selling another human being like a piece of property; then, if we disobeyed master, to be beaten, to be burned at the stake, to be castrated. All of these horrible things have happened to us as a people."--The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan 2/22/2015

Cop Pleads Not Guilty After Shocking Video Shows Him Kill an Unarmed Veteran in Cold Blood

cop-shoots-kills-unarmed-homeless-vet


Monroe, LA– West Monroe Police Officer Jody LeDoux plead not guilty at his arraignment on Thursday, for negligent homicide after shooting and killing homeless veteran, Raymond Keith Martinez, 51, in December.
On the evening of December 5, Martinez was attempting to go into a convenience store that he frequented.  The store employees would often call the police to have him removed when he would ask people for spare change outside.  The owner of the store alleges that on this evening, he told the victim that he could not come inside the store because he was intoxicated.
“He (the store owner) stated that officer got out of the car and told him to get his hands up,” the police report reads. “He stated that he did not hear the suspect say anything and the suspect turned to reach inside the paper machine, at which time the officer shot him. He stated that he did not hear the suspect say anything to the police. He stated that while the suspect was on the ground he observed a black cellphone by his hand.”
Those who knew him described Martinez as harmless. He was someone who wouldn’t hurt a fly- but with a drinking problem stemming from his past.
“He said when he wasn’t drinking he had to remember and he didn’t want to remember. He never bothered anybody,” someone from the neighborhood he stayed in told KTVE.
So far, the officers excuse for why he murdered an unarmed man who posed no threat to him has not been released. However security footage of the shooting was moved into the public record on Thursday in response to a motion by LeDoux’s attorney, Mickey DuBos, for the prosecution to disclose evidence.
The video, which is a composite from two security cameras, shows it was only seconds from when the officer approached Martinez with his weapon drawn until the victim was fatally shot.  The man was posing no threat to anyone.  The entire clip is only one minute and thirty seconds long.


In December, Martinez was remembered by friends and relatives at his grave site. He was once again described as peaceful and harmless, as mourners expressed their confusion as to why his life was taken.
“He didn’t provoke nobody out of anger, or steal or anything like that. He was loved by everything and everybody. We also know there is a problem with the West Monroe Police Department. Major problem. Whether they like it or not, they’ve got a cold blooded killer in their force,” one mourner told KNOE.
It is truly heartbreaking how many of our veterans survive war  only to come home and be killed by our troops in blue.
Only a couple short weeks after Martinez was killed, Nicholas McGehee, 28, a celebrated purple heart recipient was killed after his wife called 9-1-1 for a medical emergency.
On Mother’s Day last year, Tommy Yancy, 32, a veteran who suffered from PTSD, served in Afghanistan and Iraq in the 259th Field Service Unit following the 9/11 attacks, was savagely beaten to death, in horrific brutality caught on camera.
Last week, we reported on new documents which show that the Palm Springs Police Department admits they were at fault in the death of Allan ‘AJ’ DeVillena II, a High Desert Marine who was shot to death on Veteran’s Day weekend.
If you want to support our troops, these are some with which you can start.  None of these men have received any justice.
Despite his indictment, Officer Jody LeDoux has been on paid leave since the incident.  If somehow he’s convicted, LeDoux could face up to five years in prison.

When America behaved like ISIS: Jesse Washington and the Bible Belt’s dark history of public lynchings

When America behaved like ISIS: Jesse Washington and the Bible Belt's dark history of public lynchings

Pundits and politicians decrying the terrorist group's barbarity might wanna take a closer look at American history


They burned him alive in an iron cage, and as he screamed and writhed in the agony of hell they made a sport of his death.
After listening to one newscast after another rightly condemn the barbaric killing of that Jordanian air force pilot at the bloody hands of ISIS, I couldn’t sleep. My mind kept roaming the past trying to retrieve a vaguely remembered photograph that I had seen long ago in the archives of a college library in Texas.
Suddenly, around two in the morning, the image materialized in my head. I made my way down the hall to my computer and typed in: “Waco, Texas. Lynching.”
Sure enough, there it was: the charred corpse of a young black man, tied to a blistered tree in the heart of the Texas Bible Belt. Next to the burned body, young white men can be seen smiling and grinning, seemingly jubilant at their front-row seats in a carnival of death. One of them sent a picture postcard home: “This is the barbeque we had last night. My picture is to the left with a cross over it. Your son, Joe.”
The victim’s name was Jesse Washington. The year was 1916. America would soon go to war in Europe “to make the world safe for democracy.” My father was twelve, my mother eight. I was born 18 years later, at a time, I would come to learn, when local white folks still talked about Washington’s execution as if it were only yesterday. This was not medieval Europe. Not the Inquisition. Not a heretic burned at the stake by some ecclesiastical authority in the Old World. This was Texas, and the white people in that photograph were farmers, laborers, shopkeepers, some of them respectable congregants from local churches in and around the growing town of Waco.

Here is the photograph. Take a good look at Jesse Washington’s stiffened body tied to the tree. He had been sentenced to death for the murder of a white woman. No witnesses saw the crime; he allegedly confessed but the truth of the allegations would never be tested. The grand jury took just four minutes to return a guilty verdict, but there was no appeal, no review, no prison time. Instead, a courtroom mob dragged him outside, pinned him to the ground, and cut off his testicles. A bonfire was quickly built and lit. For two hours, Jesse Washington — alive — was raised and lowered over the flames. Again and again and again. City officials and police stood by, approvingly. According to some estimates, the crowd grew to as many as 15,000. There were taunts, cheers and laughter. Reporters described hearing “shouts of delight.”
When the flames died away, Washington’s body was torn apart and the pieces were sold as souvenirs. The party was over.
Many years later, as a young man, I visited Waco’s Baylor University, often referred to as the Texas Baptist Vatican. I had been offered a teaching position there. I sat for a while in the school’s Armstrong Browning Library, one of the most beautiful in America, containing not only the works of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, the acclaimed Victorian poets, but also stained glass windows, marble columns, and elegant ceilings that bring to mind the gorgeous interior of Michelangelo’s Laurentian library in Florence.
Sitting there, I found it hard to reconcile the beauty and quiet of that sanctuary with the photograph that I had been shown earlier by a man named Harry Provence, publisher of the local newspaper. Seeing it, I realized that as young Jesse Washington was being tortured, students his own age, some of them studying for the ministry, were just finishing their spring semester. In 1905, when another black man had been lynched in Waco, Baylor’s president became a leader of the anti-lynching movement. But ugly memories still divided the town.
Jesse Washington was just one black man to die horribly at the hands of white death squads. Between 1882 and 1968 — 1968! — there were 4,743 recorded lynchings in the US. About a quarter of them were white people, many of whom had been killed for sympathizing with black folks. My father, who was born in 1904 near Paris, Texas, kept in a drawer that newspaper photograph from back when he was a boy of thousands of people gathered as if at a picnic to feast on the torture and hanging of a black man in the center of town. On a journey tracing our roots many years later, my father choked and grew silent as we stood near the spot where it had happened.
Yes, it was hard to get back to sleep the night we heard the news of the Jordanian pilot’s horrendous end. ISIS be damned! I thought. But with the next breath I could only think that our own barbarians did not have to wait at any gate. They were insiders. Home grown. Godly. Our neighbors, friends, and kin. People like us.
The Tuskegee Institute records the lynching of 3,436 blacks between 1882 and 1950. This is probably a small percentage of these murders, which were seldom reported, and led to the creation of the NAACP in 1909, an organization dedicated to passing federal anti-lynching laws. Through all this terror and carnage someone-many times a professional photographer-carried a camera and took pictures of the events. These lynching photographs were often made into postcards and sold as souvenirs to the crowds in attendance. These images are some of photography's most brutal, surviving to this day so that we may now look back on the terrorism unleashed on America's African-American community and perhaps know our history and ourselves better. The almost one hundred images reproduced here are a testament to the camera's ability to make us remember what we often choose to forget.

Why did US help Israel make thermonuclear bomb?



According to a declassified report belonging to 1987, the US government had given sensitive technology to Israel in order to help Tel Aviv develop a hydrogen bomb.

In this edition of The Debate, Press TV has conducted an interview with Ken O'Keefe, a peace activist and former US marine from London, and Richard Hellman, the president of the Middle East Research Center from Washington, to look into the US move to help Israel make a Hydrogen bomb.

U.S. Government Buys Surveillance Technology To Track Drivers in Real Time




Local government officials have the ability to track individual drivers in the U.S. in real time and take pictures of the occupants of their vehicles, with new “truly Orwellian” technology purchased from companies like Vigilant Solutions, according to new documents uncovered by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

One of the documents is a ten page U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) memo stating that the technology behind the National License Plate Reading Initiative that was launched in December 2008 allows it to capture “vehicle license plate numbers (front and/or rear), photos of visible vehicle occupants [redacted] and a front and rear overall view of the vehicle.” Another May 2011 memo notes that this system has the ability to store “up to 10 photos per vehicle transaction including 4 occupant photos.”

These details complement findings by the Wall Street Journal that the U.S. Department of Justice has built a secret national database to track vehicle license plates around the country that now holds “hundreds of millions of records about motorists.”

While the program was originally designed to catch drug traffickers, it has now become a routine way for government agencies to find anyone that they suspect is associated with a crime. “Many state and local law-enforcement agencies are accessing the database for a variety of investigations, putting a wealth of information in the hands of local officials who can track vehicles in real time on major roadways,” writes Devlin Barrett in the Journal.

A December 2013 memo from the Milwaukee police explains how such technology works and the “standard operating procedures” for the use of the data gathered.

“(M)anufacturers and law enforcement agencies have argued that images of license plates cannot be used to identify individuals, and thus do not infringe on our individual privacy,” writes Sonia Roubini of the ACLU in an article that explain the significance of the newly released memos. “This argument is thin already, but it certainly doesn't fly with regards to photographs of the driver or passengers inside of a vehicle — especially in the era of face recognition analytics.”

The ACLU says that the biggest vendor of automatic license plate recognition technology is Vigilant Solutions, based in Livermore, California. The company has been quite open about the fact that it operates the Law Enforcement Archival and Reporting Network-National Vehicle Location Service that now holds some two billion records, and adds some 100 million records every month.

Indeed a October 2014 Vigilant Solution press release offers details on new facial recognition technology that they are hoping to sell police departments.

“The new Vigilant Mobile Companion app improves the return on investment that agencies are seeing from their investments in license plate recognition and facial recognition technologies by expanding the benefits out to everyone in the agency – patrol, investigative, detention, and other areas,” the company writes. “In addition to the license plate recognition capture and analytic tools, the app also features Vigilant’s powerful FaceSearch facial recognition which analyzes over 350 different vectors of the human face. The FaceSearch element of Mobile Companion allows officers in the field to snap a photo of a willing subject and have their face matched against a gallery of over 13 million pre-populated mugshot and registered sex offender images as well as any other images that the agency uploads into its own gallery.”

But the ACLU points out that if such as system is used to track occupants of all vehicles rather than just willing subjects, it would violate laws on privacy.

“In a democratic society, we should know almost everything about what the government's doing, and it should know very little to nothing about us, unless it has a good reason to believe we're up to no good and shows that evidence to a judge. If you aren't the subject of a criminal investigation, the government shouldn't be keeping tabs on when you go to the grocery store, your friend's house, the abortion clinic, the antiwar protest, or the mosque,” adds Kade Crockford, also at the ACLU. “Unfortunately, that basic framework for an open, democracy society has been turned on its head. Now the government routinely collects vast troves of data about hundreds of millions of innocent people, casting everyone as a potential suspect until proven innocent. That's unacceptable.”

Other companies that operate in this field include MorphoTrust USA, owned by Safran from France which sell facial recognition techology to local governments. Another company namedPalantir, based in Palo Alto, California, sells database analysis technology.

Scientist 'killed Amazon indians to test race theory'


Geneticist accused of letting thousands die in rainforest

Thousands of South American indians were infected with measles, killing hundreds, in order to for US scientists to study the effects on primitive societies of natural selection, according to a book out next month.
The astonishing story of genetic research on humans, which took 10 years to uncover, is likely to shake the world of anthropology to its core, according to Professor Terry Turner of Cornell University, who has read the proofs.
"In its scale, ramifications, and sheer criminality and corruption it is unparalleled in the history of anthropology," Prof Turner says in a warning letter to Louise Lamphere, the president of the American Anthropology Association (AAA).
The book accuses James Neel, the geneticist who headed a long-term project to study the Yanomami people of Venezuela in the mid-60s, of using a virulent measles vaccine to spark off an epidemic which killed hundreds and probably thousands.
Once the epidemic was under way, according to the book, the research team "refused to provide any medical assistance to the sick and dying Yanomami, on explicit order from Neel. He insisted to his colleagues that they were only there to observe and record the epidemic, and that they must stick strictly to their roles as scientists, not provide medical help".
The book, Darkness in El Dorado by the investigative journalist Patrick Tierney, is due to be published on October 1. Prof Turner, whose letter was co-signed by fellow anthropologist Leslie Sponsel of the University of Hawaii, was trying to warn the AAA of the impending scandal so the profession could defend itself.
Although Neel died last February, many of his associates, some of them authors of classic anthropology texts, are still alive.
The accusations will be the main focus of the AAA's AGM in November, when the surviving scientists have been invited to defend their work. None have commented publicly, but they are asking colleagues to come to their defence.
One of the most controversial aspects of the research which allegedly culminated in the epidemic is that it was funded by the US atomic energy commission, which was anxious to discover what might happen to communities when large numbers were wiped out by nuclear war.
While there is no "smoking gun" in the form of texts or recorded speeches by Neel explaining his conduct, Prof Turner believes the only explanation is that he was trying to test controversial eugenic theories like the Nazi scientist Josef Mengele.
He quotes another anthropologist who read the manuscript as saying: "Mr. Tierney's analysis is a case study of the dangers in science of the uncontrolled ego, of lack of respect for life, and of greed and self-indulgence. It is a further extraordinary revelation of malicious and perverted work conducted under the aegis of the atomic energy commission."
Prof Turner says Neel and his group used a virulent vaccine called Edmonson B on the Yanomani, which was known to produce symptoms virtually indistinguishable from cases of measles.
"Medical experts, when informed that Neel and his group used the vaccine in question on the Yanomami, typically refuse to believe it at first, then say that it is incredible that they could have done it, and are at a loss to explain why they would have chosen such an inappropriate and dangerous vaccine," he writes.
"There is no record that Neel sought any medical advice before applying the vaccine. He never informed the appropriate organs of the Venezuelan government that his group was planning to carry out a vaccination campaign, as he was legally required to do.
Fatalities
"Neither he nor any other member of the expedition has ever explained why that vaccine was used, despite the evidence that it actually caused or, at a minimum, greatly exacerbated the fatal epidemic."
Prof Turner says that Neel held the view that "natural" human society, as seen before the advent of large-scale agriculture, consists of small, genetically isolated groups in which dominant genes - specifically a gene he believed existed for "leadership" or "innate ability" - have a selective advantage.
In such an environment, male carriers of this gene would gain access to a disproportionate number of females, reproducing their genes more frequently than less "innately able" males. The result would supposedly be a continual upgrading of the human genetic stock.
He says Neel believed that in modern societies "superior leadership genes would be swamped by mass genetic mediocrity".
"The political implication of this fascistic eugenics is clearly that society should be reorganised into small breeding isolates in which genetically superior males could emerge into dominance, eliminating or subordinating the male losers in the competition for leadership and women, and amassing harems of brood females." Prof Turner adds.
In the memo he says: "One of Tierney's more startling revelations is that the whole Yanomami project was an outgrowth and continuation of the atomic energy commission's secret programme of experiments on human subjects.
"Neel, the originator of the project, was part of the medical and genetic research team attached to the atomic energy commission since the days of the Manhattan Project."
James Neel was well-known for his research into the effects of radiation on human subjects and personally headed the team that investigated the effects of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs on survivors and their children.
According to Prof Turner, the same group also secretly carried out experiments on human subjects in the US. These included injecting people with radioactive plutonium without their knowledge or permission.
Nightmarish
"This nightmarish story - a real anthropological heart of darkness beyond the imagining of even a Joseph Conrad (though not, perhaps, a Josef Mengele) - will be seen (rightly in our view) by the public, as well as most anthropologists, as putting the whole discipline on trial," he says.
"This book should... cause the field to understand how the corrupt and depraved protagonists could have spread their poison for so long while they were accorded great respect throughout the western world... This should never be allowed to happen again."
Yesterday Professor Turner told the Guardian it was unfortunate that the confidential memo had been leaked, but it had accomplished its original purpose in getting a full response from the AAA.
A public forum would be held at its AGM in November to discuss the book its revelations and courses of action.
In a statement yesterday the association said "The AAA is extremely concerned about these allegations. If proven true they would constitute a serious violation of Yanomami human rights and our code of ethics. Until there is a full and impartial review and discussion of the issues raised in the book, it would be unfair to express a judgment about the specific allegations against individuals that are contained in it.
"The association is anticipating conducting an open forum during our annual meeting to provide an opportunity for our members to review and discuss the issues and allegations raised in the book."

Trampling on Democracy, NYPD Commissioner Bratton Supports Making Resisting Arrest a Felony

abillbratton
Does NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton want to head a police force or a paramilitary unit? (Photo:Policy Exchange)

New York Police Department Commissioner Bill Bratton is a danger to the public.
A short time ago, BuzzFlash at Truthout posted a commentary, "NYPD Commissioner Backs Off Idea of Police Patrolling Protests With Machine Guns." In the column, BuzzFlash noted how the NYPD commissioner was well on his way to granting police additional brutal tactics to suppress democracy and physically harm citizens:
Consider a recent news conference given by New York Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner Bill Bratton, in which he proudly announced that a new police unit would prevent terrorist attacks and patrol protests with machine guns. The NYPD commissioner went out of his way to essentially equate terrorists with protesters (implying that the latter group included the recent wave of protesters who publicly condemned the killing of Eric Garner).
Bratton, under pressure from various fronts backed down the next day from his plan to employ a new SEAL type police unit to be employed in protests. This unit - called The Strategic Response Group - will be equipped with machine guns and sniper rifles (what Bratton euphemistically called "long rifles"). A spokesperson did the walk back by "clarifying" that the unit would only be used to oppose "terrorism." That still was not entirely reassuring since Bratton had conflated hypothetical terrorist plots and advocacy protests the day before.
Around the same time last week that he made his initial dismaying announcement about The Strategic Response Group, Bratton was testifying before a New York State Senate committee and did not object to the suggestion that resisting police arrest could be re-classified as a felony. According toVox.com:
If the state legislators asked Bratton about this, it's possible that they're at least considering changing New York law to make it a felony to resist arrest. This could spell disaster for New Yorkers, for one big reason: resisting arrest charges are used mostly by a small share of cops, many of whom are among the most abusive.
Bratton told the State Senate (according to Buzzfeed) that "if you don't want us to enforce something, don't make it a law." But that's the opposite of how resisting-arrest cases actually work. Most cops don't bring in many, or any, people for resisting arrest. But a few cops bring in a lot.
In New York, in particular - according to a 2014 report from WNYC - 40 percent of resisting-arrest cases are brought in by 5 percent of police officers.
If "resisting arrest" charges can sometimes say more about the police officer than they do about the defendant, making the charge a felony won't discourage the phenomenon - it gives more power to the police. Residents, meanwhile, could conceivably have to deal with possible prison time and a permanent criminal record for getting on the wrong side of the wrong cop.
The Murdoch-owned New York Post headlined its February 4 story, "Bratton urges boost in penalties for resisting arrest":
NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton on Wednesday urged state lawmakers to boost the punishment for resisting arrest and make it a crime to reveal personal information about cops as a means of intimidation.
Bratton said that "too many people still resist arrest" because the offense rarely gets prosecuted, and he called for it to be upgraded from a misdemeanor to a felony.
"I think a felony would be very helpful in terms of raising the bar significantly in the penalty for the resistance of arrest,” Mr. Bratton told reporters after speaking at the hearing in lower Manhattan, asreported on Observer.com.
Civil disobedience is considered "resisting arrest" by most police forces, so someone who followed the moral principles and values of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr., would be a felon by law if Bratton gets his way. As the Vox article also points out, the charge of resisting arrest is often used as a cover for the use of excessive police force:
If a cop is routinely hauling people into court for resisting arrest, he might be taking an overly aggressive attitude toward civilians. A police officer might even, as police accountability expert Sam Walker told WNYC, use the criminal charge to cover up his use of excessive force:
"There's a widespread pattern in American policing where resisting arrest charges are used to sort of cover - and that phrase is used - the officer's use of force," said Walker, the accountability expert from the University of Nebraska. "Why did the officer use force? Well, the person was resisting arrest."
Commissioner Bratton's recent efforts to further insulate the NYPD from accountability, militarize its force beyond current battle-field levels, and treat protesters as criminal vermin mirror characteristics of paramilitary forces in dictatorships. Bratton, however, is a man who is heading the police force in the most iconic city in the United States.

Barbara Boxer Shreds Giuliani: Go Ask Bin Laden If Obama 'Loves America'

Fqkfhh9tsox3teylxp8l

Giuliani and many other prominent Republicans have faulted Obama for refusing to call the Islamic State terror group 'Islamic.' The retiring senator took a shot across the bow at the ex-mayor in a tweet reminding him that the Obama administration was responsible for finally taking out the elusive al-Qaeda leader:

Hey Rudy, why don’t you ask one of the 11 million people who now have affordable health care if President Obama loves America?

Hey Rudy, why don’t you ask Osama bin Laden if President Obama loves America?

Hey Rudy, why don’t you ask the auto workers whose jobs were saved if President Obama loves America?

Hey Rudy, why don’t you ask the millions getting jobs after the worst recession since the Great Depression if Obama loves America?

North Carolina’s Homeless Hauled to FEMA Camps & Forced To Have RFID Chips



A very scary article about the homeless in North Carolina, USA: This brand new video just released by Seho Song shares more shocking news of what’s going on to North Carolina’s homeless; not only are they being ARRESTED for being HOMELESS but after being taken to FEMA camps, they are given a choice, take the RFID chip or get no benefits. Is THIS really how we want the ‘new’ America to be? What can be done to stop this sinister plan from unfolding all across the country, with the homeless and one day those with homes as this ‘set up to fail’ economic system continues to self-destruct?

Jon Stewart vs. Larry Wilmore: Who Owned Rudy Giuliani Harder?



Wilmore
Larry, still giddy from Sunday's 17,000 hour Oscar's telecast and the revelation that rapper-actor-long stare-er Common's real name is Lonnie Lynn, opened the segment about Giuliani by calling him "911 McGhee" and then swapping his photo with the Hamburglar.
Then as he parsed through Giuliani's statements at a private Republican dinner with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker where he said "I don't think Obama loves America," followed by "He didn't live through 9/11, I did" as he was trying to clarify his statements on Fox News' Sean Hannity show afterward.
"Who put Giuliani in charge of country love? Isn't that… Lonnie Lynn?" asked Wilmore.
Then Wilmore noted that Obama was raised by his grandparents who were a World War 2 veteran and an assembly line worker, respectively, and that's pretty patriotic. Via Talking Points Memo:
"So what else is different about Obama?" Wilmore said, showing a photo of the future first black President between his two white grandparents.
"Man I just — I'm really trying my best not to use the race card" he said, struggling. "Getting difficult."
"No, you know what, fuck that shit, that's racist," he said, giving up.
Then Wilmore added that most of the world came together after 9/11 because it was such a moving moment that they actually forgot that what a "colossal prick" Giuliani is. The Nightly Show host then surmised that "Obama loves America, just not as much as Giuliani loves 9/11 or as much as I love that Common's real name is Lonnie Lynn."

Jon Stewart
A stalwart of old New York when Times Square was full of porn and subways were covered in graffiti, Jon began his supremely titled segment "Gall of Rudy" by describing the 21 Club, where Giuliani said his incendiary words, as the place where people pay good money to hear "horrible things" about the President of the United States.
Then he attacked the obvious point of Giuliani using the 9/11 tragedy as a brand booster—for over a decade.
"You're not the Mayor of 9/11, you don't own 9/11. You don't own anything but the unique willingness to crassly exploit it."
Gut punch.
Then he zeroed in on Giuliani's attempt to "clean up" his statements on Fox News with Megyn Kelly but choosing the wrong block to do so. Kelly just wasn't unhinged enough so the former mayor had to appear on Sean Hannity an hour later to really get the un-hinged political love he was searching for, where the two men agreed that if you really love something, you wouldn't want to change it.
Set-up shot.
Then Stewart pointed out that Giuliani himself was loved by someone enough that they saved him from his own receding hairline and told him to just let it go. Then Stewart showed old hairline Giuliani next to current whisp-haired Giuliani and, ehn … whispy is better.
Great burn.
Then Stewart questioned G's love his own city, New York with a flashback to his own 1994 stump speech about "transforming" the city, words he'd attacked Obama for using about America.
"Why do you hate NY?! If you loved this country, you'd love the who thing, not just the parts that remind you of you," shouted Stewart before breaking out into his own remix of "God Bless America" that included feminist lesbians and minorities who want to vote.
There are so many little jabs before the final knockout punch of Giuliani using the same words he crucifying Obama for employing that it's really a joy to watch, especially as a New Yorker without porn in Times Square.

Why does Israel keep lying about Iran’s nuclear program? 

In 1996, Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres said that “in four years, Iran may reach nuclear weapons.”
