We all know Obama meant a certain skin colour < How we spell that word over here. When he is talking in the video right? You will see. I tried to find the video from so link only, but Obama said what John Legend said at the recent Oscar’s that The United States has 25 percent of the world’s prisoners but just 5 percent of its population but has 25 percent of its prisoners and many others have said. Click this link  <Click) for that video. I don’t know American Politics well enough to understand this visit, nor do I need to know. I am just sharing as this is what I do, and I leave a comment here. also I have started to leave comments by others Americans known or not well known at the bottom.

This poor girl got so much abuse :-(

This poor girl got so much abuse 😦

What Obama said about the USA being 5% of the World yet have 25% of the WORLDS incarcerated (People in Prison) This word offends me and is punishable by law here, but there are more 8l@ck men in correctional facilities today than there were under slavery in 1850. I will share this video from the Oscars again and sadly people will block me for this. I asked myself  “Why would someone block me for showing this video below”  Then it became clear they must be uneasy with American Racism issues or they are racist. I am sorry, why else would someone from the USA block me for sharing this video below? Please, don’t hide behind your computer, come and tell me why I offend you so much with this historically factual video and comments not made by me, or are you just out of clever words to use? This is your moral dilemma, not mine. American’s also get offended when I say simply “America is 5% of the World” You do understand what this means is simple. There are 7 Billion people on Earth, there are ‘Roughly 350 Million people inside the USA, so that is 5% of Earth, this is it’s meaning. I have to say this because some must think I mean something else. It’s like the woman who blocked me after I did a blog on dinosaurs, she said “I don’t believe dinosaurs existed”  Then deleted me 😀 The USA is 37 in literature. This isn’t only your kids, this is the entire Country they get this %, go Google, it’s there. I have started to leave Tweets by others below so people know I am not speaking on or for myself These words are mine, suggestion mostly, the rest is right out of the USA.

~~Via: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/07/16/obama-making-1st-visit-by-sitting-president-to-federal-prison/ ~~

President Barack Obama, who wrote in his memoir about using marijuana and cocaine as a youth, became the first sitting president to tour a federal prison on Thursday and met drug-offense inmates, saying he could have been in their place if not for the advantages he had growing up.

Obama spoke with inmates and toured El Reno federal prison, which holds 1300 inmates, 146 percent of its capacity. He vowed to work with wardens and corrections officers to address overcrowding, a piece of his administration’s wide-ranging criminal justice reform agenda.

Obama walked down the prison’s dimly-lit gray halls and stood at the door of Cell 123, Block B, noticing its two occupants’ sparse supplies: brown uniforms, mesh laundry bags, dish soap and a few books. Six non-violent drug offenders shared their stories with Obama. Their discussions will air on HBO’s “Vice” documentary program in September.

Speaking to reporters after their discussion, Obama reflected, “These are young people who made mistakes that aren’t that different from mistakes I made.” “The difference is they did not have the support structure, the second chances, the resources that would allow them to survive these mistakes,” he said.

More than 1.5 million Americans were in state or federal prisons at the end of 2013, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. African-Americans were 15 percent of the U.S. population at that time but accounted for about a third of its prisoners.

Obama wrote about his own drug use in his memoir “Dreams from my Father” and has made helping young black and Hispanic boys a priority of his remaining time in office through a program called “My Brother’s Keeper.” The issue is one he has said he intends to remain committed to after he leaves office in 2017.

For the unprecedented visit, guards cleared prisoners from the building where Obama toured and spoke. He said the criminal justice system should do a better job of discerning between young drug offenders from poor backgrounds and hardened, violent criminals. “We have to consider whether this is the smartest way for us to control crime and rehabilitate individuals,” Obama said.

NOT THE HARSHEST OF U.S. PRISONS

El Reno is a medium-security prison. David Fathi, director of the National Prison Project at the American Civil Liberties Union, said the visit would not show Obama the extent of overcrowding or lengthy stints in solitary confinement that exist at maximum-security prisons.

“He’s not going to see the harshest and most restrictive and most problematic conditions in the federal prison system,” Fathi said. But, Fathi said, Obama deserves credit for being the first president to visit a federal prison and use his position to draw attention to the flawed system.

As his time in office begins to draw to a close, Obama has become more outspoken, while also enjoying a run of victories on Pacific Rim trade, his healthcare law, same-sex marriage rights and, earlier this week, a historic nuclear agreement with Iran. Overhauling prison sentencing is an issue he has set as a key goal for his final months in the White House. On Tuesday, he called on the U.S. Congress to send him a sentencing reform bill by the end of the year.

Soaring U.S. incarceration followed a 1980s-1990s drug-crime crackdown. Mandatory minimum-sentencing guidelines from then would be altered under steps being considered in Congress for non-violent drug offenders. The United States has 25 percent of the world’s prisoners but just 5 percent of its population but has 25 percent of its prisoners.

4 Marines Killed – White House Releases Statement Wishing Muslims a Happy end to Ramadan

obama2-940x588

This I said below here <Click) This is breaking news. Many are angry and having a go at Obama for releasing a “Happy Last Day Of Ramadan” to Muslims the world over. Now I don’t know what time Obama’s team gave this message to Islam and the times of the shooting, I will however research and find out. For now there are rumors issues have started in other US Cities, for now PLEASE, Rumors, why I am not sharing them. I will leave some Tweets from American’s below, as this story develops. I have asked the SAME question your fellow or Americans have asked below, I have been asking for 18 months to SILENCE. What I was trying to tell the USA <Click) I have no idea if I am right but the proof is staggering

~~Via Breaking911 ~~ All Content below from Breaking911!

The following statement is the first to come out of the White house. It was emailed out and makes no reference to today’s terror attack.

See Below statement:

Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr. As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual – a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.

For millions of Muslims, the morning of Eid is marked with the call to prayer echoing through cities and towns across the globe. Millions of people head to local mosques for special Eid prayers followed by festive gatherings, gift exchanges, and feasts among friends, neighbors and families. The diversity of traditions paint the vibrant images we see from around the world capturing the spirit and excitement of Eid – colorful dresses or white garments decorating the masses of people standing in lines for prayer, lanterns and ornaments lighting up bazaars and neighborhoods, intricate henna designs painted on hands of young girls and women, and an abundance of delectable foods and aromatic cuisines.

As Muslim Americans celebrate Eid across America, the holiday is a reminder to every American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs. This past year New York City Public Schools announced adding Eid to their official school calendars alongside Christmas, Hanukkah and other holidays – an acknowledgement of the great diversity and inclusiveness that adds to the richness of our nation. During this year’s White House Iftar, I had the opportunity to meet inspiring young Muslim Americans who are leading efforts for greater understanding and unity across diverse communities. Following the Iftar, one of the young attendees helped spearhead an effort that raised more than $75,000 for the churches burned in the wake of the shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Americans of all faiths and beliefs must stand together to protect our democracy and strengthen our country as a whole.

Michelle and I hope today brings joy to all of your homes, both here in the U.S. and around the world. From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!

4 Marines and Gunman Die in Attack on Two Military Sites
Via: Wochit News on You Tube

~~~ Via: Associated Press~~~

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — A gunman unleashed a barrage of fire at a recruiting center and another U.S. military site a few miles apart in Chattanooga on Thursday, killing at least four Marines, officials said. The attacker was also killed.

Federal authorities said they were investigating the possibility it was an act of terrorism, and the FBI took charge of the case.

Authorities identified the gunman as Kuwaiti-born Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, 24, of Hixson, Tennessee, though the spelling of his first name was in dispute, with federal officials and records giving at least four variations.

A U.S. official said there was no indication Abdulazeez was on the radar of federal law enforcement before the shootings. The official was not authorized to discuss the case and spoke on condition of anonymity. The shootings took place minutes apart, with the gunman stopping his car and spraying dozens of bullets first at a recruiting center for all branches of the military, then apparently driving to a Navy-Marine training center 7 miles away, authorities and witnesses said. The attacks were over within a half-hour.

In addition to the Marines killed, three people were reported wounded, including a sailor who was said to have been seriously hurt.

“Lives have been lost from some faithful people who have been serving our country, and I think I join all Tennesseans in being both sickened and saddened by this,” Gov. Bill Haslam said. Authorities would not say how the gunman died. FBI agent Ed Reinhold said Abdulazeez had “numerous weapons” but would not give details. “We are looking at every possible avenue, whether it was terrorism, whether it’s domestic, international, or whether it was a simple criminal act,” Reinhold said.

Within hours of the bloodshed, law officers with guns drawn swarmed what was believed to be Abdulazeez’s house, and two females were led away in handcuffs. A dozen law enforcement vehicles, including a bomb-squad truck and an open-sided Army green truck carrying armed men, rolled into the Colonial Shores neighborhood of Hixson, and police closed off streets and turned away people trying to reach their homes.

Abdulazeez graduated from the University of Chattanooga in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, school spokesman Mike Andrews said. He was a student intern a few years ago at the Tennessee Valley Authority, the federally owned utility that operates power plants and dams across the South.

The U.S. National Counterterrorism Center said it has seen nothing so far to connect Abdulazeez any terrorist organization. But it noted that the Islamic State group has been encouraging extremists to carry out attacks in the U.S., and several such homegrown acts or plots have unfolded in recent months.

The names of the dead were not immediately released. In addition to the wounded sailor, a Marine was hit in the leg but not seriously hurt, and a police officer was shot in the ankle, authorities said.

In Washington, President Barack Obama pledged a prompt and thorough investigation and said the White House had been in touch with the Pentagon to make sure military installations are being vigilant. “It is a heartbreaking circumstance for these individuals who served our country with great valor to be killed in this fashion,” he said.

Vice President Joe Biden likewise said: “Their families have already given a lot to the country, and now this.” The shootings began at the recruiting center on Old Lee Highway, where a shot rang out around 10:30 or 10:45 a.m., followed a few seconds later by more fire, said Sgt. 1st Class Robert Dodge, leader of Army recruiting at the center.

He and his comrades dropped to the ground and barricaded themselves in a safe place. Dodge estimated there were 30 to 50 shots fired. Doors and glass were damaged at the neighboring Air Force, Navy and Marine offices, he said. Law enforcement officials told recruiters that the gunman stopped his car in front of the recruiting station, shot at the building and drove off, said Brian Lepley, a spokesman with the U.S. Army Recruiting Command in Fort Knox, Kentucky.

The recruiting center sits in a short strip mall, between a cellphone business and an Italian restaurant, with no apparent special security. The gunman opened fire next at the Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center Chattanooga. All the dead were killed there. The Navy-Marine center is in an industrial area that includes a Coca-Cola bottling plant. The two entrances to the fenced facility have unmanned gates and concrete barriers that require approaching cars to slow down to drive around them.

Marilyn Hutcheson, who works at Binswanger Glass across the street, said she heard a barrage of gunfire around 11 a.m. “I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many,” she said. “It was rapid-fire, like pow-pow-pow-pow-pow, so quickly. The next thing I knew, there were police cars coming from every direction.” She ran inside, and she and other employees and a customer waited it out with the doors locked. The gunfire continued with occasional bursts for what she estimated was 20 minutes. Bomb squads, SWAT teams and other local, state and federal authorities rushed to the scene. “If it was a grievance or terroristic related, we just don’t know,” she said.

Associated Press

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Same-sex couples won the right to marry nationwide Friday as a divided Supreme Court handed a crowning victory to the gay rights movement, setting off a jubilant cascade of long-delayed weddings in states where they had been forbidden. “No longer may this liberty be denied,” said Justice Anthony Kennedy.

The vote was narrow – 5-4 – but Kennedy’s majority opinion was clear and firm: “The court now holds that same-sex couples may exercise the fundamental right to marry.” The ruling will put an end to same-sex marriage bans in the 14 states that still maintain them, and provide an exclamation point for breathtaking changes in the nation’s social norms in recent years. As recently as last October, just over one-third of the states permitted gay marriages.

Kennedy’s reading of the ruling elicited tears in the courtroom, euphoria outside and the immediate issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples in at least eight states. In Dallas, Kenneth Denson said he and Gabriel Mendez had been legally married in 2013 in California but “we’re Texans; we want to get married in Texas.”

In praise of the decision, President Barack Obama called it “justice that arrives like a thunderbolt.” Four of the court’s justices weren’t cheering. The dissenters accused their colleagues of usurping power that belongs to the states and to voters, and short-circuiting a national debate about same-sex marriage. “This court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in dissent. Roberts read a summary of his dissent from the bench, the first time he has done so in nearly 10 years as chief justice.

“If you are among the many Americans – of whatever sexual orientation – who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today’s decision,” Roberts said. “But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.” Justice Antonin Scalia said he was not concerned so much about same-sex marriage as “this court’s threat to American democracy.” He termed the decision a “judicial putsch.” Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas also dissented.

Several religious organizations criticized the decision. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said it was “profoundly immoral and unjust for the government to declare that two people of the same sex can constitute a marriage.”

Kennedy said nothing in the court’s ruling would force religions to condone, much less perform, weddings to which they object. And he said the couples seeking the right to marry should not have to wait for the political branches of government to act.

The 14th Amendment to the Constitution requires states to allow same-sex couples to marry on the same basis as heterosexuals, he said

“The dynamic of our constitutional system is that individuals need not await legislative action before asserting a fundamental right. The nation’s courts are open to injured individuals who come to them to vindicate their own direct, personal stake in our basic charter,” Kennedy wrote in his fourth major opinion in support of gay rights since 1996. It came on the anniversary of two of those earlier decisions.

“No union is more profound than marriage,” Kennedy wrote, joined by the court’s four more liberal justices. The stories of the people asking for the right to marry “reveal that they seek not to denigrate marriage but rather to live their lives, or honor their spouses’ memory, joined by its bond,” Kennedy said.

As he read his opinion, spectators in the courtroom wiped away tears when the import of the decision became clear. One of those in the audience was James Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court fight. Outside, Obergefell held up a photo of his late spouse, John Arthur, and said the ruling establishes that “our love is equal.” He added, “This is for you, John.”

Obama placed a congratulatory phone call to Obergefell, which he took amid a throng of reporters outside the courthouse. Speaking a few minutes later at the White House, Obama praised the decision as an affirmation of the principle that “all Americans are created equal.”

The crowd in front of the courthouse at the top of Capitol Hill grew in the minutes following the ruling. The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, D.C., sang the “Star-Spangled Banner.” Motorists honked their horns in support as they passed by the crowd, which included a smattering of same-sex marriage opponents.

The ruling will not take effect immediately because the court gives the losing side roughly three weeks to ask for reconsideration. But county clerks in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas began issuing licenses to same-sex couples within hours of the decision.

The cases before the court involved laws from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee that define marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Those states have not allowed same-sex couples to marry within their borders, and they also have refused to recognize valid marriages from elsewhere. Just two years ago, the Supreme Court struck down part of the federal anti-gay marriage law that denied a range of government benefits to legally married same-sex couples.

Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor formed the majority with Kennedy on Friday, the same lineup as two years ago. The earlier decision in United States v. Windsor did not address the validity of state marriage bans, but courts across the country, with few exceptions, said its logic compelled them to invalidate state laws that prohibited gay and lesbian couples from marrying.

There are an estimated 390,000 married same-sex couples in the United States, according to UCLA’s Williams Institute, which tracks the demographics of gay and lesbian Americans. Another 70,000 couples living in states that do not currently permit them to wed would get married in the next three years, the institute says. Roughly 1 million same-sex couples, married and unmarried, live together in the United States, the institute says.

The Obama administration backed the right of same-sex couples to marry. The Justice Department’s decision to stop defending the federal anti-marriage law in 2011 was an important moment for gay rights, and Obama declared his support for same-sex marriage in 2012. The states affected by Friday’s ruling are Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, most of Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas.

I mention the above as it is relevant to what I offer in as much proof as I can. I will know by your answer if you have read this. Come at me with ignorant hate I will debate you till I KNOW you are a Dis-Info agent, I will debate this story as I know the story, do you? Please try, if this is true and I can say 70% it seems so, we are in real trouble readers and friends. I offer ONLY facts and alleged information that is already out there, then I put together through HARD research. Now when someone tells me a story that flags in my mind as a ‘Conspiracy’ even though I hate that word! When someone uses the word ‘Conspiracy’ People look away and presume blindly the story is for people with Tin Hat’s on are attached to the Moon, the Earth’s Moon. Well let’s change the word ‘Conspiracy’ to ‘A story not making sense’ We have many already. The JFK Assassination <Click, You can click all these) Apollo 11 Moon Landing, Roswell UFO IncidentWith Video < Click) (UFO DOES NOT MEAN ALIEN OK!) Hitler Burning down the Reichstag Conspiracy to gain power,  To the new 9/11  story <Click) That site was made by Family of those who died, Firemen and Police men woman to people like you and I and port Authority. None of them who lived were allowed to give testimony at the 9/11 commission report <Click) and this is a story that makes very little sense should you go and look. I will leave all this here and you can research, ignore it, try and debunk it (Please TRY) Jesse Ventura talks 9-11 Conspiracy and upsets host < Video here is one of thousands. Jesse was a Governor, Wrestler, American Navy Seal in Military and served in War, the man is respected heavily and he has went ‘Off the Grid’  <Video) due to what he is telling, he is trying to tell American people the Truth. He is like say? Ron Paul  an American physician, author, and former Republican congressman, two-time Republican presidential candidate, and the presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party in the 1988 U.S. Presidential election and others in DEMANDING the truth. You can look at all that, all link’s are website’s Video’s or Images. So go and have fun with it, knowing people died and that is sad, very sad. But we must always look for the truth. I am actually a #TruthSeeker in disguise as a Blogger 😀 

So now you understand the word ‘Conspiracy’ more, lets quickly tell the story of Navy Seal Team 6 shall we? 

Allegedly most of the Bin Laden team are DEAD! Family speak..check...

Allegedly most of the Bin Laden team are DEAD! Family speak..check…

Now I got told this many months ago, I didn’t blog it nor did I do an article on it on Ace News Services <Click) where I have an Editor, a good one at that! I did research for a few days when time allowed but for whatever reason I dropped the story. The family of the guys above from Seal Team 6, still called Seal Team 6 but with new men and woman in it are all dead. Now I took the info I was sent and again didn’t go anywhere with it. Today I will share what I know. I will also leave links below from Main Stream Media (TV/Newspaper/Sky/Fox News and all them etc) to Alternative Media like myself, we are everywhere, some global and some just level and kinda doing it for the right reasons but also for fun. It’s not for everyone what I do, I know this 😀 But neither is watching Porn with a Beautiful woman next to me, Getting so Drunk I beat people up, building things, doing Religion, getting the jail for being a bad boy and whatever else other people DO! I do this, you do what you do AND I DO RESPECT THAT!! So please, respect me or close the page, it really is THAT SIMPLE OK! 😀 I don’t like any Bible so I don’t read, you have the same right here.

I don’t have to AT ALL tell Scottish people about a Media that not so much tell lies but bend the truth. The BBC and many other Main Stream Media did come across as distorting the facts. If you are in Scotland and you agree, then please don’t just throw all I type here out of the way because it just ‘Can’t be true’ I am not saying it’s true, if anyone ask’s me “Shaun do you really believe in all this, simply they are ignorant and did not read any of this article. I am putting suggestion into play here, I say nothing is true I only share the facts I can, but these may not be facts. What I do ask is please watch the video of the OLD DEAD Seal Team 6 family members who said “Dad, I may be killed for being there when Bin Laden was killed” <Click) I don’t think Bin Laden was killed friends I am to believe he died in US Custody in 2002 <Click) give or take a year through his Kidney Dialysis issues he DID suffer from. The USA peddled a story of “He was laid rest at open sea as is tradition in Muslim culture” <Click) EM…NO..IT’S NOT! <Click) There are other links and I will leave them below. This is a big read, tons of info, if you manged to consume it all, thank you and well done!! 😀 If you come at me with hate, through your Words I will out you for NOT READING THE WHOLE BLOG. You don’t have to read every link above or watch all video’s but you can look at the headlines and video titles as well as images. Information gathering is what I do. When Theresa May stood in Westminster live on TV and said “The Peter Hayman Filed are missing” <Click) My jaw dropped. Why? Because I had some of the very files she said were missing and I did share it with my readers and you and Theresa. I can’t say for 100% I am correct but nobody has told me ‘Shaun these are not the files’ in the months they have been on my blog/newspaper/Ace News and the other 10 or so places it ended up. Why? Anyway, Seal Team 6…The video is hard to watch, it’s a Father crying over what he things is murder, I don’t say this, the Father does. This is the news I share. I hope you enjoyed the knowledge!

Why are 22 members of Navy SEAL Team 6 dead shortly after their unit killed Osama bin Laden? Talk show host Michael Savage is relentless in his pursuit to uncover the truth about why all the members of the Seal team that ‘took out Bin Laden’, have died. “They were killed. They were assassinated. They were executed. Or it was done because there’s a moron working inside the Defense Department who did it to them,” Savage said. “How could we lose more men in one mission than in the entire history of the Navy SEALS, and no one has been held accountable for it?” he asked. One father of one of the SEALs told Savage in a radio interview he believed the U.S. government sent his son and his colleagues to their deaths. Claiming that on at least three separate occasions his son grabbed him by the bicep and announced that he had prepared his will, knowing that he and his SEAL team were going to meet his demise. “They knew,” the father states. “They knew something was up. Every one of them.”

SEAL Team 6 Was Set UpVIDEO Via Western Journalism on You Tube

In the opening hour of his inaugural East Coast drive-time show, Michael Savage signaled he has no intention of abandoning his passion for uncovering the full story behind the deaths of 22 members of Navy SEAL Team 6 in Afghanistan shortly after it was leaked that their unit killed Osama bin Laden. The subject came up for a second time in the show when a regular listener said she liked the fact that he covered subjects no one else on talk-radio seemed to be talking about. They were killed. They were assassinated. They were executed. Or it was done because there’s a moron working inside the Defense Department who did it to them,” Savage said. “Either way, somebody should go to prison for this.” Savage called the August 2011 Taliban shootdown of the CH-47D Chinook helicopter that killed all 38 passengers “one of the greatest military scandals in American history.” “How could we lose more men in one mission than in the entire history of the Navy SEALS, and no one has been held accountable for it?” he asked.

Savage had further questions:

“Who put them in an old slow-flying helicopter in a combat zone?”

“Why didn’t they break them up into fast-strike helicopters?”

“Who made this decision in the Defense Department?

“Who made it in the Obama administration?”

“These are questions, man, and I want them answered, and I want a hearing; and you want to hear equality, you want to hear fairness? How about fairness to the families whose hearts are broken by somebody in the Obama administration who killed those Navy SEALs? Would that be equality?” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said last month that the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will hold a hearing early this year to investigate the disaster. Savage noted on his show Thursday that he dedicated his novel “A Time for War” to the SEALs to try “to awaken America.” In July, as WND reported, the father of one of the SEALs told Savage in a radio interview he believed the U.S. government sent his son and his colleagues to their deaths. After Vice President Joe Biden revealed that SEAL Team 6 carried out the operation that killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011, Strange said the members of his son’s team gave startling indications to their families they were about to meet their demise. Charles Strange, the father of slain SEAL Michael Strange, told Savage that in June 2011, on at least three separate occasions his son grabbed him by the bicep and announced that he had prepared his will. The bewildered father finally was able to find out what it all meant. Michael Strange, his father recalled, said: “Something’s going on with the team. Somebody’s leaking things out. Something’s going on.” Savage, reacting with emotion, asked: “Your son knew he was being sent to his death?” “They knew,” Strange replied. “They knew something was up. Every one of them.” Other families of the victims have reported similar experiences with their sons the last time they saw them, Strange said. Strange said documents related to the crash that he obtained show that, among other anomalies, the rescue team was held back. “This was all planned,” he said. “I have it in the paperwork.” Strange affirmed that there was no chase helicopter or any other kind of support for the team. “So, you’re saying they planned to execute your son and the others on purpose?” Savage asked. “One hundred percent, sir,” Strange replied.

Investigation

Prompted by the concerns expressed by family members, Chaffetz said his subcommittee on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is investigating the crash. As WND reported in May, Strange recalled to the National Press Club in Washington his experience with President Obama at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware Aug. 9, 2011, when the remains of 30 U.S. troops were brought home from Afghanistan. He leaned over to whisper into Obama’s ear to ask if there would be a congressional investigation into the death of his son. President Obama whispered back, “We will look very, very, very deep into this.” But Strange said he hadn’t heard a word since that encounter. The families have filed a lawsuit against Obama, Vice President Biden, the Taliban, the governments of Afghanistan and Iran, because the Islamic regime promises to pay $10,000 for every dead U.S. service member. Among their many suspicions, the families question the sudden replacement of seven Afghan commandos on board the helicopter just before takeoff. The seven who died in the attack are not the seven listed in the flight manifest. The families say that to this day, they don’t know the identities of the dead Afghans. Strange noted that the chopper’s black box was never recovered and doubts the explanation that it was washed away in a flash flood.

Why The SNP Must Change This Uneven, Religious Singing Law

_75496768_sectarian_policejacket

Nonsense

This came  via this uneven media source here: I won’t name, but click here if you want to go THERE! (Click here)  At your peril you understand. The story is below, my opinions are directly below. Before anyone cries the source shows where the REAL problem is with this football singing law, it can’t be dismissed now as the numbers are there, surprised as I was to see them on the site I did. No hate ok, just FACTS

scotlandThe SNP I voted for me my kids, 100 years from now as well, but they cast many of us to one side with this law, this is the reason and the reality of Scotland trying to be free right here in terms of votes. Ian Duncan Smith and his death plan CLICK HERE is biting many of us, why we see Celtic fans giving to food banks in amazing numbers it makes it feel democratic, but is it?. Many want an #IndyRef2 but we MUST win it, we don’t? we lose for 30 years and more go hungry, suicide (Sadly) and worse, you guys know the story I am not telling you a story you don’t know, here is the problem friends > Scotland do we have enough votes to be free? We need more than 50% <Click that) The SNP must drop this disgrace of a law against Catholics and Celtic fans. I know my boss here Wullie is VERY active in this story already but if the SNP want to free us from a disgusting, evil twisted regime of peadophiles, liars and thief’s they MUST change, adapt or drop this uneven law. The stats point to a truth below but still, when I go to Celtic games or watch on TV, whatever, I hear #Solidarity, do we have problems? Yeah, but a VERY SMALL ONE! The stat’s don’t lie, we can’t hide from the 10% below but we sure as HELL CAN POINT TO THE 30% BELOW AND GET ANGRY. I know anger is the easy choice bhoys and ghirls but we must keep singing the songs that are born from slavery, murder, rape, injustice, the 10, I could go on and on and on, we all know the why’s and how’s. This is a very uneven law, the SNP may lose 20% of what we need to get higher than the present 50% from May 7 2015 % the 45% on that hateful night in Glasgow the 30% came out and attacked the people who, like you and I stand in Solidarity with say? Palestine, not because! The 30% DO wave Israel flags for the wrong reasons, it is pure venom and hate. We just know how the little guy feels and we stand shoulder to shoulder with all people who suffer injustice and are wronged, Worldwide I see who are oppressed as we are today. Like in the USA where Rosa Parks and Selma ARE TODAY STILL, where there are more (I hate this word) bi@ck men in prison than there were in slavery in 1850, that is fact friends. Check! This is our story in a different land so this proves ALL our points friends, it’s GLOBAL! We must understand that if  Scotland is to be free what World we enter alone, Ireland is free and that I love, Scotland I want free, do you? Well can you FEEL THIS HERE? Feel it? Don’t be angry, just feel the information, it STUNNED ME when I seen it and touched my heart because I feel it also, anyway enough about me, this is for why

The utter injustice in our society is Masonic and Establishment, call it what you like. I just call it corporate greed and hate, many 1st World countries are almost Fascist states, the #PoliceStateUSA I write about daily is a pointer, please, click HERE for that story. I love America and it’s people but sadly around 150 Million white CHRISTIAN Religious people or whatever we want to call their religion I DO RESPECT because I refuse to become the hate they want us to be, they have  the Conquer and Divide tactics in play the Roman Empire brought to the World and are holding the World back and would willingly and happily see Palestine bombed back to the stone age and Iran flattened because of an old book and a willing media paid. Yes friends, the Media and issues in our World I spoke about way back on certain sites 10/15 years ago are now showing, we seen it first hand last year and we see it again with this:

Paddy Ashdown: SNP coming south to burn Westminster, Like Balkan War! – Shocking Remarks!!

David Starkey branded ‘serial utterer of bile and bilge’ for ‘offensive’ comments comparing SNP to Nazis

and this, you can click all 3 these to see the truth, linked to the source and true and there is worse. 

‘UN Human Rights Chief’ Compares UK Media to Nazi Propaganda

I will leave my thoughts here. I may be right, I may be wrong. I write about our World, I have reached 1.2 Million people in 10 Months on ShaunyNews and a further 800,000 on AceNewsServices <Click) where, like here I write for the boss and the total honor to tell the stories our media we now all know won’t tell us. I could go on and tell you worse but if you are really that bored or interested go to my personal blog and use ANY key word for ANY story and I have covered it. Please friends! Do not confuse my 2 Million readers as bragging, I am just fecking delighted I am able to reach the World, my World and yours. The injustice does not sit in Holyrood alone sadly, it is Global, the SNP want equality? Then they must not pander to unionism nor loyalism for votes in a predominantly Protestant Country. I share, now it is you who must understand the logic and morality behind it all…..Good luck!

I hope you are all enjoying a good summer and are ready to see the Ronny Roar on European nights. I love you all as my Kin and I don’t, I can’t hate anyone. I tell news for a living here and there now. I was poisoned with drugs for a mystery illness before, today I have M.E (Myalgic encephalomyelitis) This is my issue, we all have an issue, we all hurt, we all have a story so I deal with it. For past regressions I can only say, in-fact I can’t say, I can only share this with you all, a song will speak for me, this is almost, for me anyway what the spirit of the Celtic Family Represent. HH to all, Wullie I hope this is ok, I had no hate here, just a story mate. Have I offended anyone I am sorry but please tell me where and how I offended you. We must understand why we need to hate or dislike something. We can’t just be angry and LIKE THE 30% MAJOR problem as I shared in the link above and the copy/paste below. Keep it real people, all I want is peace, no hate, please don’t READ HATE HERE, if you see hate this is your issue not mine

Let the People Sing The Malleys
VIDEO MADE BY TaastyHD ™ | On You Tube

~~Story told by said ALLEGED vile outlet below~~

The number of people charged under the controversial football hate crime legislation has fallen slightly, according to Crown Office figures. They showed 193 people – all but four of them men – were charged in the year to the end of March. That number was down from 206 in 2013/14 and 267 the previous year.

The figures showed that the accused had an affiliation with top of the list!! Rangers in 30% of the charges, Aberdeen in 16%, Celtic in at a low defensive 10% and Hibernian in 8%. Some 16% of all charges were connected to the Dundee United versus Aberdeen match in December last year. (Well we can clearly see where the issue really is Celtics people)  A further 7% were connected to Hamilton v Motherwell in September and 7% to the Scotland v England match in November. Court proceedings have begun in relation to 168 of the 193 charges.

 ‘Hateful behaviour’ 

The report on the figures said the average age of the accused had risen from 23 to 27. Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act 2012 criminalises hateful, threatening and otherwise offensive behaviour that is likely to incite public disorder in relation to football. Last year people were accused of offences that were “threatening” in 61% of the charges and “hateful” in 30% of charges. Behaviour was described as “otherwise offensive” – for example including a reference to celebration of loss of life or support of terrorist organisations – in 13% of charges.

Of the 58 charges relating to “hateful” behaviour, 50 charges involved incidents of religious hatred, down on previous years, while 4% involved racial hatred, and no charges involved sexual orientation.

As in the previous two years, derogatory behaviour towards Roman Catholicism (84%) accounted for the largest proportion of religious abuse.

Academic evaluation

Six charges (12%) included behaviour that was derogatory towards Protestantism.

One charge included derogatory behaviour towards Judaism, and one charge included derogatory behaviour towards Islam. Fewer charges occurred in football stadiums than in previous years, with the majority relating to incidents outside grounds or in town or city centres on match days.

An academic evaluation of the act, published by the Scottish government, said football fans said they had not noticed any significant decrease in the amount of problematic behaviour since the new laws had come into force. The report also said police and stewards in football grounds appeared to be concentrating on groups of young fans – terming them risk groups – and losing focus on more serious offenders, perhaps away from stadiums.

There has also been some criticism of the act from within the legal profession, with some sheriffs “emphatically critical” of it. Successful prosecutions have fallen from 73% to 52%. Minister for Community Safety Paul Wheelhouse said: “We have seen a raft of encouraging statistics and evidence published today showing that hate crimes in Scotland are on the decrease, both on the streets of Scotland and in our football grounds and this is to be welcomed.

“Religious crimes are down, race crimes are down, crimes in relation to sexuality are down and we’ve seen a decrease in crimes of offensive behaviour at regulated football matches in Scotland. Whilst the legislation we brought in two years ago has had its critics, the latest statistics show a steady decline in offences at stadiums and a YouGov poll shows 80% of Scots support the Offensive Behaviour Act.”

“We will not be complacent and will continue to monitor how the act is working very closely going forward. However, I believe the legislation is working. The evaluations, backed by the latest statistics out today, demonstrate that the act has had a positive impact and our approach has delivered real improvements in behaviour at football and online.”

~~End Story~~…For now…

WE FEEL THIS SMILE RIGHT?

As London and the USA talk about trading Oil in Euro and not the PetroDollar, meaning the USA Dollar keeps crumbling, Nicola Sturgeon who lives and loves in us all went over the USA and came back a loved Woman who made friends in high places in with our American friends. Scotland is being called almost “Nazi” by the London paid media, here is an example right here ‘UN Human Rights Chief’ Compares UK Media to Nazi Propaganda <Click) The facts are we are a peaceful people, her ways are our ways. She and the SNP played a blinder going to the USA! Check this if you have not already! Nicola Sturgeon Loved up on USA Daily Show appearance (Full Video) <Click) Let us NOT, Scotland fill our hearts and minds with hate as we walk slowly over the hill to a Brave new World, because we are, they can’t stop a power this strong, led by Nicola, energized by our Scottish youth and led by the Educated elders in our Kinship. Scotland know we are special but don’t say it always. We are a special people, Nicola is a special lady, I am proud to call her “MY FIRST MINISTER” Nicola honey, if you do read this, you are 1st an AMAZING Political leader, 2nd you entered our Hearts and we your’s. I know this Nicola. Together we will cast the shackles of oppressive media and old political men who want a last pay day. Together WE WILL walk away from War, Poverty and inhuman people, WITH NO HATE! Just love. Our vote represents what Scotland? For me it’s Scotland, and our love of our land, people and who we CAN become. Don’t stop Scotland, lets line up behind the SNP, Tommy Sheridan, The SNP and the the Socialist party and allow these people to represent us and free our bank accounts, our pain, our suffering for all of time and never rejoin a Union so cruel and uncaring for it’s people. I speak to the people in England too, they don’t want it either, this is why many wanted to Vote SNP. Solidarity is just that. Together we march forward to a brilliant new ending. I hope that makes sense Scotland. Herald Scotland, keep reporting, keep informing and we will help you too… Scotland, we are Scottish, we don’t hate!! 

THIS ISN'T ANGER, IT'S SCOTTISH DETERMINATION

THIS ISN’T ANGER, IT’S SCOTTISH DETERMINATION

~~~Via: http://www.heraldscotland.com/comment/columnists/like-project-fear-fiscal-autonomy-scare-stories-demean-scotland-and-harm-the-unio.128852896 ~~~

NICOLA Sturgeon flew to the USA; she walked back.

So goes the joke about how “Saint Nicola” as Labour’s Lord Foulkes calls the First Minister, went down so well stateside she now walks on water.

There she was swapping jokes with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show, holding artsy receptions at the Lincoln Plaza in New York, lecturing officials the White House, meeting the IMF’s Christine Lagarde, but not President Obama. “Well, we didn’t ask” said the Scottish Government, somewhat disingenuously.

All this adoration of Ms Sturgeon seems unfair. Few political leaders get such star treatment, not even Alex Salmond in his hey day. (What was all that about him being the back-seat driver?) She has managed to combine being an elected leader with being a celebrity. Well, she should enjoy it while it lasts, say Labour.

Back home the press was full of new “blows” to Sturgeon over the falling price of oil. “Nicola Sturgeon’s dream of full fiscal autonomy in tatters” cried the Daily Record. The referendum was supposed to have resolved the constitutional issue, but clearly the campaign is still running, only now over FFA.

Press commentary had been dominated by a claim that the SNP was “running scared” of calling for all tax powers to be devolved to Holyrood. Sturgeon had, the headlines claimed, “shelved” plans to table such an amendment to the Scotland Bill.

“The SNP promised in their manifesto to deliver FFA”, said Labour’s Shadow Scottish Secretary, Ian Murray, last weekend, “but they have barely settled into their Westminster offices before abandoning it.”

However, when the SNP did then put down an amendment to this effect four days later, the critics did a handbrake turn. “The SNP’s economic credibility is in tatters,” said Ian Murray, even though they were doing what he had been urging them to do.

The odd thing about this whole FFA debate is that everyone knows it’s not going to happen. Labour and the Tories were never going to hand over full tax-raising powers to Holyrood. Yet if you read the Scottish press you’d have thought Scotland was on the brink of actually getting devolution max.

It’s like that early referendum which people said Nicola Sturgeon was going to call when she clearly wasn’t. David Cameron has always opposed fiscal autonomy on the grounds that if you give full economic powers to Scotland it might as well be independent. And he has a point. Full fiscal autonomy is a policy that no-one really wants, even though everyone seems to want to talk about it.

The SNP talk about fiscal autonomy because they see it as a step to full independence. Their amendment is intended to call the bluff of Conservative MPs who have been saying that it is about time the Scots were jolly well told to manage their own affairs and stop robbing English taxpayers.

Labour and the press want to talk about fiscal autonomy because falling the oil price makes independence look like a bad deal. They assume – wrongly – that fiscal autonomy is essentially the same as independence, and so they can use the same arguments.

But the lesson of the referendum, and even more so the General Election, is that FFA actually made relatively little impact in the end. The relentless warnings in the press about “deficits” and “black holes” didn’t stop the SNP winning the biggest landslide in election history. And the focus on FFA since the election is doing little to help Labour recover its lost ground in Scotland.

Last week’s Herald/TNS poll on Holyrood voting intentions was devastating. It suggested that 60% of Scots now intend to vote SNP in the Scottish Parliamentary elections next year, leaving Labour with precisely zero constituency seats in Holyrood. Worse, it indicated that 80% of voters under 35 are now supporters of the SNP against only 6% for Labour.

The Labour Party is dying out in Scotland, yet it continues to bang away relentlessly on the same message without asking why it isn’t working. Are the voters just stupid? Why can’t Scots get the message that they can’t go it alone without economic hardship?

In fact there’s reason to believe that the FFA scare, like its parent Project Fear, has actually damaged the Union rather than strengthened it. The rhetoric is entirely negative and to many Scots, demeaning. It is effectively saying that, unlike any other small country in Europe, Scotland is uniquely incapable of running its own affairs and managing its own economy.

Unionists insist they are not saying Scots are “too wee too poor too stupid” but that’s how it sounds to many voters. That is why so many Scots get angry about the press reports on Scotland’s alleged inability to finance independence; they think it’s just running their country down and they don’t like it.

Actually it’s worse – it looks like a case of: “The UK got the oil, now it’s running out, you’re on your own. Hahaha.” Scotland remains the only nation, state or region to have oil discovered in its waters and receive no direct benefit.

Nicola Sturgeon understands this, which is why she hardly bothers rebutting the IFS numbers. She isn’t like Alex Salmond, who used to get riled and would argue the toss endlessly about the economic numbers. What she has been doing, with considerable success, is acting as if Scotland already was an independent country.

Critics say she is running away from the reality – but what actually is the reality here? If there were fiscal autonomy, the calculations based on the General Expenditure and Revenue Statistics would no longer apply. Scotland would be raising all tax locally and sending a subvention south for common services like defence and foreign affairs. That would have to be negotiated as would Scotland’s burden of debt and repayments.

There would also be the tricky question of equalisation payments between Scotland and the UK. This is not independence, but a form of federalism, so even with fiscal autonomy there would be transfer payments to be negotiated as there are in all federal systems.

This may sound like the Scots getting their cake and eating it, but the point is that FFA, unlike independence, does not mean fiscal separation. All financial relationships would be subject to continual negotiation like everything else in a federal system.

There is little point in speculating about the precise nature of these negotiations because FFA is not going to happen. What is going to happen is much worse than FFA. Next year Scotland gets to set a Scottish rate of income tax – but no powers over the other taxes – and an invitation to use it to reverse Westminster-imposed benefit cuts.

This is a transparent fiscal trap. The Unionist parties hope the Scottish Government will repeat the “penny for Scotland” campaign of 1999 and lose votes in the election. They assume Scottish voters will never vote for increased taxes.

But it sounds as if John Swinney is minded to call their bluff and offer precisely that at the next election. And if he makes a sound moral case, he may well get away with it. The politics of tax are different in Scotland as the Tories found in the 1990s. And the more Labour appears to be using the same language as the Tories on taxation, fiscal autonomy and the Scottish “deficit”, the more it is alienating its own core voters. Those voters would much rather take selfies with the woman who has become the living embodiment of the values of the new Scotland.
