Fatal Price Spikes

Max and Stacy discuss how much pharmaceutical prices have shot up since ObamaCare passed and look, in particular, at rising insulin prices and how many diabetic patients are unable to afford their required dosage with sometimes fatal consequences. The month-to-month uncertainty in costs and coverage is literally making people sick. In the second half, they discuss the ‘kultur’ wars and why technology favors tyranny.

Threatening To Have Her Neighbour Shot - “Sobs” In Court Then Laughs As She Walks Free Because Vagina

Natalie 'Pussy Pass' Ashworth Mother Of Two 20 Previous Convictions Pleads Guilty To Witness Intimidation
By Mike Buchanan, J4MB: A piece in today’s Times, emphases ours:
A woman who threatened to have her neighbour shot smiled as she walked free from court, minutes after crying in the dock.
Natalie Ashworth, 32, sobbed as she faced sentencing at Minshull Street crown court in Manchester, having admitted witness intimidation. She was given a suspended jail term and was photographed laughing with a friend outside the courthouse.
Ashworth, who has previous convictions for public order offences, threatened David Shepley and said that his mother’s pub would be destroyed unless he dropped assault and criminal damage charges against her, the court was told. Another neighbour heard her shout “drop the charges or I will go to jail or you will get shot”. She also said that she could “not go back to prison” and that “If I get locked up then I have got friends who will rush his house and his mum’s pub will be no more”.

Stooges Behaving Badly

By : When I was in grad school way back in the early 1970s, I had a visiting professor from the British Film Institute.  One day he was digressing about how he had put himself through school by working as a projectionist.  He reminisced about the comedy short subjects that had once been a fundamental part of every presentation but were now obsolete.  He mentioned a number of comic actors and wondered if their names had gone down the memory hole (they had) and then asked if anybody in the class had ever heard of The Three Stooges.
The raucous response shocked him.  He had no idea that the Three Stooges had been resurrected on American television and were an integral part of the childhood of just about every student in the room.
The Stooges were arguably more popular in the 50s and 60s than they were during their vaudeville and cinema heyday in the 1930s and 1940s.  That would probably not be true today.  They may well be available on some cable channel and some of their shorts in the public domain may be out there on YouTube, but there is much more competition for viewers’ attention today, so their impact can’t help but be lessened.  In some circles, that would be considered a good thing.

Turkey's Latest Power Grab: A Naval Base In Cyprus?

  • The possibility of a Turkish naval base on Cyprus does not bode well for the chances of a Cyprus reunification deal, particularly after the breakdown of the July 2017 peace talks, which were suspended when "Turkey had refused to relinquish its intervention rights on Cyprus or the presence of troops on the island."
  • Turkey has 30,000 soldiers stationed on Cyprus, the northern part of which it has illegally occupied since 1974.
  • "If Greek-Turkish tensions escalate, the possibility of another ill-timed military provocation could escalate with them... Moreover, such a conflict might open up an even greater opportunity for Russian interference." - Lawrence A. Franklin.
Authored by Debalina Ghoshal: Turkey's Naval Forces Command has "submitted a proposal to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stating that Turkey should establish a naval base in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus," according to Turkey's strongly pro-Erdogan daily, Yeni Safak, which recently endorsed the proposal for the base in an article entitled, "Why Turkey should establish a naval base in Northern Cyprus."

How Jewish State Israel’s Bogus Definition Of Anti-Semitism Shuts Down Free Speech For The Goyim And The Shiksers

'Misandric Feminist Labour Friends of Israel lawmaker
Jess Phillips – who once infamously laughed about “stabbing” Corbyn “in the front” and on another occasion laughed about men's suicide and cancer rates in parliament – also flippantly waved away any free speech concerns before the crucial NEC Jewish anti British free speech vote'
By Steven Garside: The fierce campaign to cajole, bully and shame the UK Labour Party into adopting a controversial definition of anti-Semitism produced by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) – along with its 11 working examples – has been waged all summer long by pro-Israel lobby groups inside and outside the party.
It has finally come to a head with Labour’s official acceptance of the document at a meeting of its ruling National Executive Committee (NEC) on 4 September.
One of the most insidious tactics employed by Labour Friends of Israel (LFI) and the Jewish Labour Movement (JLM) – the two organized vocal Zionist campaign groups inside the Labour Party – has been to claim it is an innocuous and uncontroversial document.

Feminist Nancy Crampton Brophy Authoress Of “How To Murder Your Husband” Accused Of Murdering Her Husband

Sputnik: Sixty-eight-year-old Nancy Crampton Brophy ostensibly killed her husband at the Oregon Culinary Institute in early June, allegedly mourning his death on her Facebook account shortly thereafter.
A female romance novelist, who was detained in Oregon for killing her spouse last week, once wrote an essay entitled, "How to Murder Your Husband," according to The Oregonian.
The newspaper reported that 68-year-old Nancy Crampton Brophy wrote the 700-word essay in 2011, describing herself as "a romantic suspense writer" who spends plenty of time "thinking about murder and, consequently, about police procedure."
"Divorce is expensive, and do you really want to split your possessions?" Brophy wrote in the essay, discussing financial motives for murdering one's husband.
Notably, after killing her husband, Daniel Brophy, at the Oregon Culinary Institute on June 2, Nancy then reportedly mourned his death on a Facebook account that "seemed to belong to her."
Prosecutors have remained tight-lipped on a possible motive for the killing as Crampton Brophy appeared in a local court on charges of murder earlier this week.
