ZeroHedgeMAY 25, 2017

Eric Clanton, 28, a former Diablo Valley and California State University philosophy professor suspected in the Antifa bike lock attacks was arrested for assault Wednesday afternoon in Oakland.

Clanton is being held on $200,000 bail after being booked into Berkeley City Jail – though police have not said whether the arrest is connected to online investigative efforts which identified Clanton as a person of interest in bike lock attacks.

Clanton is the suspected Antifa member going around with a bike lock assaulting Trump supporters. The weaponized autists over at 4chan ‘unmasked’ him based on photographic and video evidence along with publicly available information.

‘Intelligence on attack seemingly leaked by US, it must be stopped’ – Manchester mayor

Published on May 25, 2017

The mayor of Manchester has condemned the leaks on the investigation into the terrorist attack which killed 22 people, apparently coming from the US. This comes amid reports the UK has stopped sharing intelligence on the matter with Washington.


I think it’s hard for the British govt to lie about the details of the attack with the leaks.

Rabi Ben Lavi

The US is leaking the information because the few half sane people left know what would happen if the same occurred in the US. If muslims morons killed little girls at a concert, at least 20 million Americans would be unstoppable. The Mosques would be burning from coast to coast. They would smash, burn, and kill anything that looks remotely middle eastern and then come for the government.
Posty Masters

It is hard to cover everything up if it is leaked to the US. What a bunch of assholes the Brit politicians are. They are traitors to their people.. I hope the leaks continue
Charmaine Scheepers

I am more angry about innocent children that died than she is. Maybe she should be worried about terrorists roaming free.

What a joke. The terrorists are investigating themselves…

Don’t people have the right to know anything anymore? You can’t leak anything unless somebody else is trying to cover it up.

ask yourself why the british police are covering up for terror as they did in rochdale
Go BIG or go home

British scum don’t want the truth getting out

Cost of universal health care in California — bigger than state’s budget…

The price tag is in: It would cost $400 billion to remake California’s health insurance marketplace and create a publicly funded universal heath care system, according to a state financial analysis released Monday.

California would have to find an additional $200 billion per year, including in new tax revenues, to create a so-called “single-payer” system, the analysis by the Senate Appropriations Committee found. The estimate assumes the state would retain the existing $200 billion in local, state and federal funding it currently receives to offset the total $400 billion price tag.

The cost analysis is seen as the biggest hurdle to creating a universal system, proposed by Sens. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, and Toni Atkins, D-San Diego.

It remains a long-shot bid. Steep projected costs have derailed efforts over the past two decades to establish such a health care system in California. The cost is higher than the $180 billion in proposed general fund and special fund spending for the budget year beginning July 1.

Employers currently spend between $100 billion to $150 billion per year, which could be available to help offset total costs, according to the analysis. Under that scenario, total new spending to implement the system would be between $50 billion and $100 billion per year.

“Health care spending is growing faster than the overall economy … yet we do not have better health outcomes and we cover fewer people,” Lara said at Monday’s appropriations hearing. “Given this picture of increasing costs, health care inefficiencies and the uncertainty created by Congress, it is critical that California chart our own path.”

The idea behind Senate Bill 562 is to overhaul California’s insurance marketplace, reduce overall health care costs and expand coverage to everyone in the state regardless of immigration status or ability to pay. Instead of private insurers, state government would be the “single payer” for everyone’s health care through a new payroll taxing structure, similar to the way Medicare operates.

Lara and Atkins say they are driven by the belief that health care is a human right and should be guaranteed to everyone, similar to public services like safe roads and clean drinking water. They seek to rein in rising health care costs by lowering administrative expenses, reducing expensive emergency room visits, and eliminating insurance company profits and executive salaries.

In addition to covering undocumented people, Lara said the goal is to expand health access to people who, even with insurance, may skip doctor visits or stretch out medications due to high copays and deductibles.

“Doctors and hospitals would no longer need to negotiate rates and deal with insurance companies to seek reimbursement,” Lara said.

Insurance groups, health plans and Kaiser Permanente are against the bill. Industry representatives say California should focus on improving the Affordable Care Act. Business groups, including the California Chamber of Commerce, have deemed the bill a “job-killer.”

“A single-payer system is massively, if not prohibitively expensive,” said Nick Louizos, vice president of legislative affairs for the California Association of Health Plans.

“It will cost employers and taxpayers billions of dollars and result in significant loss of jobs in the state,” the Chamber of Commerce said in its opposition letter.

Underlying the debate is uncertainty at the federal level over what President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress will do with Obamacare. The House Republican bill advanced earlier this month would dismantle it by removing its foundation – the individual mandate that requires everyone to have coverage or pay a tax penalty.

Republican-led efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare is fueling political support for the bill, Atkins said at a universal health care rally this past weekend in Sacramento hosted by the California Nurses Association, a co-sponsor.


“This is a high-ticket expense … We have to figure out how to cover everyone and work on addressing the costs in the long-term – that’s our challenge,” Atkins said. “I’m optimistic.”

The bill has to get approval on the Senate floor by June 2 to advance to the Assembly. A financing plan is underway, which could suggest diverting money employers pay for workers’ compensation insurance to a state-run coverage system.

Lara said he believes California can and should play a prominent role in improving people’s lives.

“We can do better,” he said.

Violence And Intimidation Against Republicans Becoming New Normal…

Violence and intimidation against Republicans are quickly becoming the new normal in an increasingly tense political climate.

In one of the most recent incidents, police in Tennessee charged a woman with felony reckless endangerment on Thursday for allegedly trying to run Republican Congressman David Kustoff off the road after a town hall. The woman, Wendi Wright, was reportedly enraged over Kustoff’s support for the American Health Care Act and screamed at the congressman and his aide, striking his car windows and reaching inside the vehicle.

The same day that Tennessee police charged Wright for reckless endangerment, police in North Dakota escorted an enraged man from another town hall after he became physical with Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer over his support for the GOP Obamacare replacement. “Will the rich benefit from, if the health care is destroyed, do the rich get a tax break? Yes or no?” the man shouted, before shoving cash down the congressman’s collar. “There you go, take it.”

CNN’s Poppy Harlow downplayed the incident, saying the man was “showing his disgust” with Cramer.

The day before that, a Huffington Post article that showed “how to really turn up the heat on elected officials” went viral. The author, Michaelangelo Signorile, called on protesters to harass Republicans at dinner, when they’re out shopping and even at home. Societal norms for the basic levels of decency one should afford political opponents, Signorile argued, no longer apply to liberals.

“It’s time to move beyond polite protests within specified boundaries. It’s time to escalate the expression of our outrage and our anger in a massive way,” he wrote. (RELATED: In Their Own Words: Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ Leaders Say They Want To Make America ‘Ungovernable’)

Starting today and from here on, no elected official ― certainly those in the GOP defending and supporting Trump on a variety of issues, for example ― should be able to sit down for a nice, quiet lunch or dinner in a Washington, DC eatery or even in their own homes. They should be hounded by protestors everywhere, especially in public ― in restaurants, in shopping centers, in their districts, and yes, on the public property outside their homes and apartments, in Washington and back in their home states.

Signorile’s article has already been shared more than 29,000 times.

A popular parade in Portland, Oregon last month was cancelled after threats of violence against one of the groups participating — a local Republican organization.

An email warning parade organizers promised 200 or more protesters would rush into the parade and drag the Republican marchers out, if that’s what it took to keep them from participating. “You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from shutting down roads so please consider your decision wisely,” the email warned. Portland has been a site for organized left-wing protests, which have often turned into violent riots. (RELATED: Leader Of Portland Anti-Trump Protests Charged With Sexually Abusing A Minor)

The threat was sent from an email address registered with RiseUp.Net, an organization that is open about “providing communication and computer resources to allies engaged in struggles against capitalism and other forms of oppression.”

The Oregon threat was credible in part because Berkeley, California has become a literal political battlefield on multiple occasions now, after far-left groups have resorted to violence to keep Pro-Trump speakers (or, in one case, free speech marchers who happened to be Trump supporters) from appearing in public.

Pro-Trump speaker Milo Yiannopoulos had his speech at the University of California-Berkeley cancelled after rioters set the campus ablaze in order to keep him from speaking. (RELATED: ‘INFERNO’ — Milo Speech Cancelled After Rioters Set Campus Ablaze [VIDEO])

A North Carolina GOP office was even firebombed a month before the election, and a building adjacent to it was spray painted with graffiti: “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else.”

Being a Republican in high school or college is increasingly treacherous — and not just at Berkeley.

Shortly before the election, a female high school student was attacked after declaring her support for Trump. A fellow female student took the girl’s glasses off and punched her in the face, saying, “Fuck you, you bitch.”

Olivia Corn, president of Cornell University’s College Republicans, said she was physically assaulted the night after Trump won the election. “Fuck you, racist bitch, you support a racist party,” her attacker reportedly said. Ironically, Corn said she was “not Donald Trump’s biggest fan,” and added that she “was saddened that I was not afforded the same respect that I offer others.”

A Maryland high school student wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat after the election was punched and kicked by students protesting Trump after he started arguing with them.

Similarly, police in Florida arrested a 17-year-old high school student after he punched a classmate for carrying a Trump sign at school.

“It definitely had a political motivation,” said Lt. Mike Bandish of the Palm Bay Police Department. “The boy was carrying a Trump sign and walked into the gym. The other boy punched him in the face.”

Schiff Repeats Clapper Talking Points In Orchestrated Attack On Trump

Screen Shot 2017-05-15 at 10.14.18 AM

Shifty Adam Schiff (D-CA) is the kind of sleazy politician that taints all of Congress just by his mere existence. He’s the kind of kid that anti-bullying regulations were created to protect, hiding behind the skirt of a teacher or the threat of sanctions against the many who surely must have detested him throughout his school years. Clearly in that regard little has changed for the California Democrat.

The dishonest with the helium balloon head went on Face the Nation Sunday, spewing his vitriol immediately with the first question, one in which he’s asked, “There’s a lot happened this week, so for you, what’s the most important thing?”

Schiff responds, “Well the most important thing to me is that the President fired the FBI Director all because of the Russia investigation. That first justification given, again, the White House misleading the country about a major action the administration was taking.” He goes on to call the President unethical and maybe beyond unethical Shifty repeats the same talking points that his comrade James Clapper had spewed earlier in the day on another program, that it’s “deeply disturbing and a threat to our system of checks and balances.” The most disturbing thing aside from Schiff himself is their coordination of the Democrat talking points and attacks, proof that all of their malicious anti-American nonsense is orchestrated, politically motivated and deliberate.

Dickerson points to the positions and statements made by Schiff in the past, which were highly critical of Comey, asking if there wasn’t merit to his firing.  The lying someone saw the need to elevate criminal Hillary Clinton to the stature of our President. He said that Comey never explained why he treated the Clinton investigation one way and the Trump investigation another. We’ll spell it out your you, Tootsie Roll Pop head, it’s because Clinton is a treasonous spy who exposed and sold American secrets and the Trump investigation is a sham designed by the same crooks to sink his presidency, totally lacking in merit. Was that simple enough to penetrate the thick outer candy layer of your head?

Schiff goes on to conflate all DOJ business with the ill-advised recusal of Attorney General Sessions, claiming he couldn’t fire Comey because he was still dragging out the bogus Russia investigation. Under those circumstances he’d be a fool to ever complete it. The US Attorneys had cases they were working  on, Brennan and Clapper surely had their operations that were not yet completed, that’s how it goes sometimes. Nobody should be guaranteed a job, least of all a criminal planted in the FBI because of their successful obstruction.

Schiff blathers on about the critical nature of the Russia investigation to the process of hiring a new FBI Director, what should be the least relevant consideration. While asking a prospective director how long they would continue to indulge the Democrats in their destructive charade is important, the investigation itself is a ridiculous political farce, wasting time, energy and hamstringing the administration. It’s proceeding just as the Democrats and Schiff intended.
