Judges Demand Open Borders and Dead Babies as the Pentagon Burns Our Money
Hello to all out there in internet land! Thanks for tuning in once again to our USA Really daily podcast, today for November 21. It’s just about here—Thanksgiving is nearly upon us! Have all your beloved and perhaps not-so-beloved relatives showed up yet?! We’re going to a friend’s house for Thanksgiving and I’m pretty pumped, mainly because he’s making buffalo chicken dip as an appetizer! Huzzah! That beats turkey any day, if you ask me. But anyways, let’s get on with this whole thang.
First, I want to remind you about our two chances for you to win wheelbarrows full of cash—our Global Democracy Award where we’re looking for original works on the US government’s interference in other states, and our Zuckerberg Wanted action where we’re looking for solid evidence of the government enforcing illegal censorship online, and especially on social networks. In both cases, you could find yourself the happy owner of several thousands of dollars, so check both of these items out!
So let’s start things off with a look at our opinion piece for today. The article is called “Is the Pentagon Burning Our Money?” by Winston Smith. He writes: “News the Pentagon cannot even keep track of what America has spent on defense comes at a time when the number of homeless veterans is on the rise. The DoD is expected to release the news on a failed audit it took three decades to complete. Despite the fact, the United States spends more on defense than Russia, China, Germany, France, India, and the UK combined; it seems a unique kind of insanity grips Americans. We’ve bases and various states of war going on all over the world, but nothing ever seems to be over. Afghanistan to Syria an alleged “war on terror” seems to either be totally unwinnable or a complete fallacy. An announcement by the National Defense Strategy Commission frames the lunacy claiming “the Defense Department isn't financially or strategically set up to wage two wars at once and could even lose a war against China or Russia individually.” Talk about bang for our bucks!”
Then let’s do our history thing with our daily “This Day in History” piece. On this day back in 1969, the forerunner to the internet, the APRANET—the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network—was established, connecting the IMPs at UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute. Obviously we all owe a huge debt of gratitude to the scientists who came up with this! And the next year, in 1970, Operation Ivory Coast in the Vietnam War went down. It was an attempt to rescue prisoners of war from Vietnam, but the commies caught wind of it and moved the prisoners out of the camp beforehand. And on this day in 1980, the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Paradise, Nevada suffered a fire that killed 85.
Then on with the news. First up is some bad news for Trump—seems a judge has blocked his asylum restrictions. There’s some ying yang ready to block everything he does to protect our borders. On November 9, President Donald Trump issued a proclamation prohibiting asylum applications to immigrants who crossed the southern border between official ports of entry. According to the presidential proclamation, the limitation could be extended until the signing of an agreement with Mexico that allows the U.S. to directly deport immigrants who cross illegally. San Francisco District Judge Jon Tiger agreed on Monday with legal groups that immediately sued, arguing that U.S. immigration law clearly allows someone to seek asylum even if they enter the country between official ports of entry. Some people just irrationally hate the notion that countries have borders and are supposed to protect those borders.
And hey, Elon Musk has renamed his spaceship again. Now it’s the Starship. I wonder, will Grace Slick be on it? He has not revealed any details of the new design for the craft, but had previously said it would be able to transport up to 100 passengers to Mars.
Then we’ve got Part 15.1 of our series “Voting Problems, Fraud, Scandals Plague Polling Places Across America” on Iowa this time. State law there only recently required people to show ID to vote, but lots of people said they didn’t know, so they stood in long lines all for naught sometimes. There were also broken machines and lack of handicap accessible polling places. We do this stuff like every two years. You’d think we could have it down pat by now, right? But nope. Just a big fat nope.
And hey get this—the Russian company the Federal News Agency has sued Facebook! After war was declared both by the mainstream American media and the biggest social networks controlled by Washington against our site, as well as on our colleagues from the Federal News Agency, after the numerous attempts to force us “keep quiet” and stop talking about the issues hidden and muted by the vast majority of the mass media in the U.S., the Federal News Agency had no other option but to file a lawsuit against Facebook—the very image of crooked American social media. The complaint alleges that Facebook has violated the terms of its user agreement by deleting the Federal News Agency account when the agency was in complete compliance with the terms of the community. The complaint also alleges that Facebook violated the Federal News Agency’s rights to freedom of speech and discriminated against the Federal News Agency on the basis of its national origin. Will FB finally get what’s coming to it for being a collective of such soulless turds? We’ll see.
And speaking of judges blocking stuff—another judge has blocked Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban. Too many people would just have meltdowns if they couldn’t kill their babies. They might actually have to take responsibility for their actions. Terrible, right? Imagine a world populated with responsible people—frightful, is it not? Republican Governor Phil Bryant enacted the ban in March. The law would have prohibited abortions 15 weeks after the mother’s last menstrual period. The law was temporarily blocked in a lawsuit filed by the Center for Reproductive Rights on behalf of the only abortion clinic in Mississippi, the Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The bill banned most abortions after 15 weeks, with no exceptions for rape or incest, which made it the most restrictive abortion ban in the US. Doctors could have faced fines or had their licenses suspended or revoked if they performed the procedure after 15 weeks. The only exemptions were in cases where there was a fetal abnormality that was “incompatible with life,” or the mother’s life was in danger. Gov. Bryant said at the time he wanted the state to be “the safest place in America for an unborn child.” Only a truly distorted soul would think that’s a bad thing.
Aaaaand there’s a “New Corruption Scandal Involving the Top Manager of a Large International Company.” Actually, over the past five years, the level of corporate corruption in the world has increased, according to 56% of top managers of multinational companies in 14 major countries. Corruption in fast-growing economies is considered by half of the top managers to be insincere and natural. For instance, in 2017, 49-year-old billionaire and head of the Samsung Group Lee Jae-Young was accused of transferring a bribe of $38 million and other corruption incidents related to the former President of South Korea Park Geun-Hye. And on Monday, the head of the Renault-Nissan Alliance Carlos Ghosn was arrested in Japan. The details of the alleged misdeeds for which he is being prosecuted by Japanese authorities are beginning to trickle out. It seems his misuse of company resources included an audacious fraud to create what amounted to a private slush fund that purchased homes and other luxuries explicitly for use by the CEO. This piece has all the facts and figures for you, and you can see just exactly how this guy was living. I guess he won’t be living that way anymore.
And hey! Don’t eat romaine lettuce. Seriously, you might get E. coli. Fo real, I’m telling yins. And wash out anywhere you might have stored romaine lettuce recently. Romaine lettuce is unsafe to eat in any form, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday in a broad alert in response to a new outbreak of illnesses caused by a particularly dangerous type of E. coli. In the first half of 2018, 5 people died because of problems with the lettuce. According to the CDC, the current outbreak is not related to the one that raged at the beginning of the year. Nevertheless, the CDC reported that 32 people in 11 states have become sick from eating contaminated romaine lettuce. Of those, 13 have been hospitalized, with one patient suffering from a form of kidney failure. The Public Health Agency of Canada has reported that 18 people have been infected with the same strain of E. coli in Ontario and Quebec.
And that’ll about do things for our news for the night. Before we hit the dusty trail, let’s take a look at tomorrow’s opinion piece. It’s entitled “What is behind the disintegration of civility in America? – Part I” and it’s by Seraphim Hanisch. The last few months have been noteworthy in terms of lack of civility and the increased prevalence of violence motivated by political or cultural viewpoints in the United States. We have seen the most obvious smear campaign in modern history with the attempt to block Judge Brett Kavanaugh from confirmation to the US Supreme Court. Even now we see various newly elected US Representatives with plans to somehow impeach the man from this post. We have seen a never-ending barrage of attacks against the President, most of them led and condoned by many major media outlets, The New York Times and Washington Post and CNN acting as the ringleaders. Never in modern history has a duly-elected President faced such expressly biased and dishonest opposition. This behavior holds at all levels. In Colorado Springs on October 20, a young man who was “doxxed” and discovered to be a very politically conservative Orthodox Christian was attacked brutally by members of “Antifa.” He was attacked with knives as well as fists, and he suffered a broken orbital bone and his face was really beaten badly. For political preference. That’s about the shape of things now, but check out this piece tomorrow for Hanisch’s thoughts on how things used to be too. It’s a pivotal piece for right now!
And with that, comrades, we bid you good night. Thanks for listening, thanks for reading, and keep it right here for all the news you need to know.
