Petty thug owes thousands of people money.
Donald Trump often portrays himself as a savior of the working class who will “protect your job.” But a USA TODAY NETWORK analysis found he has been involved in more than 3,500 lawsuits over the past three decades — and a large number of those involve ordinary Americans, like the Friels, who say Trump or his companies have refused to pay them.
David Swanson reviews the new expose by James Risen, who is being persecuted by CIA and Obama for telling the truth.
The root of the problem, as Risen sees it, is that the military and the homeland security complex have been given more money than they can reasonably figure out what to do with. So, they unreasonably figure out what to do with it. This is compounded, Risen writes, by fear so extreme that people don’t want to say no to anything that might possibly work even in their wildest dreams — or what Dick Cheney called the obligation to invest in anything with a 1% chance. Risen told Democracy Now that military spending reminded him of the Wall Street banks. In his book he argues that the big war profiteers have been deemed too big to fail.
Truckloads of money corrupting the US “news” about Syria, war and peace.
The media debate surrounding the question of whether to launch a military attack on Syria in August and September of 2013 was dominated by defense industry-backed experts and think tanks. These individuals and organizations are linked to dozens of defense and intelligence contractors, defense-focused investment firms, and diplomatic consulting firms with strong defense ties, yet these business ties were rarely disclosed on air or in print. This report brings transparency to these largely undocumented and undisclosed connections.
Good example, the darling of the “liberal” and “progressive” warmongers, the Brookings Institution:
…Experts with The Brookings Institution were cited in 31 articles on Syria in our dataset, more than any other think tank. Brookings is an influential think tank that is presented in the media as an independent authority, yet it receives millions in funding from the defense industry, including $1 – 2.5 million from Booz Allen Hamilton and $50,000 – $100,000 from Boeing, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Palantir Technologies. Brookings Executive Education’s Advisory Council Chair, Ronald Sanders, is a Vice President and Senior Fellow at Booz Allen Hamilton.”
For some reality, see our articles and posts on Syria, false flags, supporting Al Qaeda, Saudi arms and money. It’s a real great time for all. War is Peace; heil Hitler.

This still frame from video shows Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev visible through an ambulance after he was captured in Watertown on Friday
It is mind-blowing news every hour today.
The Mother of the two alleged bombers:
“Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva, the mother of Boston bombing suspects Dzhokar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev … “He was controlled by the FBI for five years,” she said.”They knew what my son was doing, they knew what sites on the Internet he was going [to], they used to come…and talk to me…they were telling me that he was a serious leader and they were afraid of him.”
“They were talking to my son, and they called me officially and they told me that my son is an excellent boy and they have no problem with him,” she added. “At the same time, they were telling me that…he is getting information on really extremists…sites, so they were very, very afraid of him. So that’s why I think that this is a setup.”
The unidentified men in black with backpacks, at the Boston Marathon, appear to be National Guard Civil Support Team:
