Dozens, Maybe Hundreds, Smoke Marijuana in Front of White House; Two Fined $25 Each

Saturday saw marijuana prohibition protestors walking through the United States capital city to outside the White House. Once there, dozens — maybe hundreds — of the protestors smoked marijuana. The response of the many assembled police to the lawbreaking: two people were fined $25 each for public consumption of marijuana. Oh, and it seems some police chased protestors who had inflated a 51-foot “joint” after police had told them not to do so.

A Speech that Would Have Made Waves at AIPAC

Much has been reported on United States presidential candidates trying to one-up each other at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington, DC last week as they pledged their intentions to, as president, stand with Israel. Significantly less media attention was paid to another presidential contender, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who, instead of speaking at the AIPAC conference, presented in Utah a speech he says he would have given had he attended the AIPAC conference. While Sanders’ comments regarding Israel were rather nuanced, he did say up front that “Israel is one of America’s closest allies” and that the US is committed “to guaranteeing Israel’s survival.”

Media’s Blind Spot on War’s Victims and Blowback

Over at The Intercept, journalist Glenn Greenwald has written a powerful and insightful examination of how media provides Americans with many details regarding the deaths and suffering caused by terrorist attacks in “western” nations but shields Americans from anywhere near the coverage of victims of the United States and cooperating governments’ attacks in other countries, including the US government’s “hideous civilian-slaughtering strikes in Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, Libya, and Iraq.”

Ron Paul: Trump Will Win Nomination Despite Convention Tricks, but May Face Third-Party Challenger

Speaking Friday with hosts John Berman and Kate Bolduan at CNN, former three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul predicted that shady maneuvers, like the rules changes and replacement of delegates used against Paul at the 2012 Republican National Convention, will be used against Trump at the upcoming 2016 party convention. Paul says, however, that he believes Trump will win the Republican nomination despite such “establishment” efforts.

Ron Paul: Bernie Sanders is Principled, but Not Consistently Antiwar

Fox Business host Kennedy asked Ron Paul on Wednesday to address the similarities between Paul and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), whose presidential campaign, Kennedy noted, has much support from young people as did Paul’s presidential campaigns.

Paul responded that Sanders is a principled individual — just as Paul was in presidential campaigns and as a Republican US House of Representatives member from Texas. This, Paul suggests, appeals to young people who are “idealistic” and “willing to listen to different viewpoints” instead of being “locked in place” in political views as “middle aged and older people” more often are. The appeal of the two candidates to young people also arises, Paul suggests, from young people believing Paul and Sanders “are telling the truth” and “are not just giving them a lot of political talk.”

Judge Napolitano: Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee is Pro-Government on Big Constitutional Issues

Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst and former New Jersey State Judge Andrew Napolitano declared in a Fox News interview today that President Barack Obama’s new Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland is “almost always on the side of the government” on matters related to several constitutional provisions. This conclusion, Napolitano explains, is based on Napolitano’s initial review of Garland’s activities as a federal judge over the last 19 years.

US Setting Up African Quagmire

While much attention is focused on the United States government’s decades of military intervention in the Middle East, the US government is behind-the-scenes developing another huge intervention quagmire in Africa. In a Tuesday interview with host Scott Horton on the Scott Horton Show, international affairs writer Eric Margolis presented some of the steps taken so far to repeat in Africa the US intervention failures of the Middle East.

Andrew Napolitano Examines Hillary Clinton’s ‘Continuing Pattern of Lying’ in Email Scandal

Former New Jersey State Judge Andrew Napolitano says in a new video editorial that it is part of Hillary Clinton’s “continuing pattern of lying” to claim her actions related to her private email server while she was United States secretary of state were not criminal and were like actions taken by her predecessors in the office. Napolitano further explains that Clinton’s claim seems wrong in two ways. First, her actions appear to be criminal. Second, her predecessors did nothing like what she did.
