This week is all about cheating…
First up, the very popular multi-millionaire baseball Yankee, Alex Rodriguez. It seems he had to admit, just like Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, and Roger Clemens before him, that he was pumping up the juice, sticking the old needle in all the right places, all these years, and has been lying about it:
Alex Rodriguez met head-on allegations that he tested positive for steroids six years ago, telling ESPN on Monday that he did take performance-enhancing drugs while playing for the Texas Rangers during a three-year period beginning in 2001.
“When I arrived in Texas in 2001, I felt an enormous amount of pressure. I felt like I had all the weight of the world on top of me and I needed to perform, and perform at a high level every day,” Rodriguez told ESPN’s Peter Gammons in an exclusive interview in Miami Beach, Fla.
“Back then, [baseball] was a different culture,” Rodriguez said. “It was very loose. I was young. I was stupid. I was naive. And I wanted to prove to everyone that I was worth being one of the greatest players of all time.
“I did take a banned substance. And for that, I am very sorry and deeply regretful.”
I’m not sure what they are going to do to him: Make him bat-boy for a year? Make him run beer errands for the Yankee fans during the home games? Make him play baseball in Cuba for a year? Go to steroid rehab? Nobody Knows, but we are finding out now, that 103 more players tested positive for steroids in 2003…and that was…uh…TEN years ago? What were they waiting for? The Cubs to win the World Series?
No, they (Who are they?) weren’t going to tell us. Someone LEAKED this information! I bet, this person is, at this very moment, sitting with Snowden in a Russian Airport, because ‘President Obama is also VERY mad about this:
“And if you’re a fan of Major League Baseball, I think it tarnishes an entire era, to some degree,” Obama said. “And it’s unfortunate, because I think there were a lot of ballplayers who played it straight.”
This coming from a man who has never played anything straight in his life….he even cheated on his birth certificate…..but I digress.
And then, there’s the cheaters in China. It seems, the school exams in China are so HARD that the kids have been sneaking in electronic ‘cheating’ devices, so therefore, BRAS will be banned during the tests.
Education chiefs in northeast China have devised a new tactic to clamp down on cheating in the country’s annual university entrance exams: they have banned bras. About 9.12 million students will sit the notoriously difficult gaokao exam Friday and Saturday. Last year, according to the China Daily, more than 60,000 electronic devices were seized, including plastic earphones, wireless signal receivers, modified pens, watches, glasses and leather belts.
They should take a page from America: Our teachers let them bring anything at all with the answer to the test questions, because in America, the teachers don’t get their big bonuses unless the kids pass the tests. In fact, if a kid is caught NOT using a calculator in math class….and they start actually doing math in his or her own head,—they will flunk the class for not knowing how to use the all important calculator.
The Chinese have it backward!
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
Obama…Obama’s daily cheating has tarnished an entire era for the whole planet…He should be kicked out of baseball.
It seems being a woman in China is more dangerous now than it ever was before the revolution. One woman was actually KILLED by a runaway shopping cart. I can relate. One time, in a local shopping parking lot, some woman tried to kill me with her car, because she wanted my boyfriend. But I outsmarted her…meaning…I ran REAL hard, and graciously gave him to her. But, this poor woman didn’t see it coming. It smashed her into a pillar and that was about it.
And it’s not just the shopping carts that are attacking Chinese women. (Maybe she was an old girlfriend of Jackie Chan) Breast implants are exploding.
I’m sure her Dragon Summon score was worth the pain.
But, the Chinese women, are not the only ones who are suffering. Hillary Clinton is now selling tee-shirts with her facc plastered on the front to start up her Presidential campaign for 2016. She looks like a Buddha-in-the-moon, with a serious 1984 big sister gaze.
I’d take runaway shopping carts and exploding breast plants any old day. But what I really would like to say is:
Do you think some Chinese officials would take Hillary shopping next time she goes to visit? We really are NOT ready for her.
I’m just….saying. American women could use some help.
(It’s a JOKE NSA. Get real.)
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.- Albert Einstein.
This week we have the NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowdon, VS the United States Government.
A young man does an interview with the British paper, The Guardian, and tells the world that our government is spying on everything we do. He believes it’s wrong, and even though he knows he will be hunted down, and possibly killed, he did it anyway. After that statement, the man just disappeared. Snowden, and this is very important, allegedly downloaded the country’s most sensitive secrets, especially how the U.S. Government does surveillance abroad, so other countries would know how we spy on them. If it’s true, that’s not good, although I don’t for a minute believe that the rest of the world is that stupid, and didn’t know this anyway.
Since we haven’t heard from the man, we have no idea what the truth is. John Kerry, a man who lied big time about his own involvement in Vietnam, and who branded American soldiers as war-criminals when he was younger, said that “people may die as a consequence of what this man (Snowden) did.”
And, in a “I told you so” Nobody smirking moment, (Read yesterday’s post) John Kerry, our defense secretary, also said this:
“It is possible that the United States will be attacked because terrorists may now know how to protect themselves in some way or another, that they didn’t know before.,”
Life is wonderful when you can blame some insignificant nobody, isn’t it?
And then, we have The United States government:
When it comes to protecting the secrets of the United States, I think the Democrats make Edward Snowdon look like an amateur.
Take Bill Clinton. His North Korea appeasement program included a nuclear reactor. He also provided North Korea with detailed satellite photos of Kadena during the 1990′s as part of an “earth resources” deal with China. The U.S. Dept. of Commerce documents show the Chinese satellite “remote Sensing Center” was supplied with “world class remote sensing data acquisition, processing, archive and distribution” equipment. The state of the art satellite equipment was proved by Huges Corp.
In 1996, President Clinton personally signed an executive order releasing a wide variety of space and missile technology for export to China. That executive order was supported by the CEO’s of Lockheed, Loral, ad Huges and it allowed China to purchase sophisticated electronic guidance and control systems for its military missiles.
Remember: China helped Pakistan nuke up, and Pakistan helped North Korea, Iran and Iraq. All because Bill and his big military companies, wanted to make some money. In the meantime, he was encouraging all other nations, like Japan and India to not nuke at all.
So, Bill Clinton has made it possible for China to be able to nuke the United States. Any city. Any time. And now, North Korea. And yet, he is still adored.
That was treason of the highest order. No other way to look at it: Treason.
What else happened during Bill’s reign? Remember the Los Alamos fire? Opps, a Chinese spy got in and downloaded everything. In fact, in the last ten years that I have been reading about politics, I can’t count the number of times our secrets have been stolen. Remember when the head of the CIA was our biggest informer to Russia? Who let THAT happen? If this program is so damn good, how come we do not stop China from stealing all our good stuff?
And then you have the current President, who has continued to lie. He continues to fundamentally change our now, socialist America, into a soon- to -be communist dictator. He is flooding our shores with Muslims, and his cabinet with Muslim sympathizers. He let men die in Benghazi, sent the IRS after patriotic Americans, pushed Obamacare through in the middle of the night, and that’s only what we know of.
Who is the bigger monster here? Do we let him pass because we honor the office, even if it means the office is destroyed and replaced with a dictator?
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
Is Edward Snowdow out to kill innocent Americans? Or, do you trust the government that rules you now?
If you choose our government, then you are doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Snowdon, might be a lone traitor, we won’t know unless we hear him speak. BUT—Our own government has hurt, and will continue to hurt more of its own citizens that Edward could ever dream of hurting. You have to buy the ‘facts’ that everyone is telling you, that he intends to give all our secrets away.
To say the Edward Snowdon is a bigger traitor than Bill Clinton or Barack Obama is insanity. And to keep trusting the criminals in office, is just more insanity. But that just my lonely Nobody Opinions.

Nobody Gets Email:
Remember when all the dogs were dying a couple of years ago from tainted dog food from China? I wonder how Glenn Beck would have reacted if his dog had died from tainted dog food instead of old age? Those of you who listened to Glenn Back last week, know what I’m talking about.
Anyway, I haven’t checked this out…but I’m looking at a can of Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup in my hand, and the first number on the barcode is 0…so according to this information, it’s made here.
Would they LIE about this? I have NO idea, but I thought it interesting enough to pass it on.
(Thanks to Mona)
Always read the labels on the foods you buy…no matter what the front of the box or package says, turn it over and read the back, carefully.
With all the food and pet products now coming from China, it is best to make sure you read the label at the grocery store, and especially WalMart when buying food products. They don’t have to pass an inspection for health or contamination. Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located. It is important to read the bar code to track its origin.
This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it’s a concern to you, it’s a great way to “Buy USA & Canada” and not from China.
The whole world is concerned about China-made “black hearted goods.” Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China?
If the first 3 digits of the bar code are 690, 691, or 692, the product is Made In China.
471 is Made in Taiwan.
This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to rescue ourselves. Nowadays the Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products “Made in China”, so they don’t show from which country it is made.
However, you may now refer to the barcode…remember if the first 3 digits are :
650-692…then it is MADE IN CHINA
00-09…USA & CANADA
—-Why isn’t this the front page story on every news lead tonight?
Because, our mainstream media, won’t touch it.
Instead, we watch for Popesmoke. Popesmoke is NOT going to save any of us from Obama.
Last week I posted about Obama lamenting that he wasn’t an emperor. Well, for a pittance of what he spends on himself at our expense, next time he goes to China, he could buy himself an imperial bath, and PRETEND. Why not? Send Michelle to Spain again. Better yet, send her and the kids to Russia to look at that big hole. I don’t know about you, but I think Obama could get used to this kind of thing. In fact, if he IS going to become our emperor, we should insist he takes a spa bath everyday for at least 6 hours. Then he will always have a good excuse for not answering the phone, should any Americans be attacked ever again.
The Springs Hotel, at the Lushan Mountain County in central Henan province, China offers an imperial bath service, where one is treated like an Emperor. Recently, an unknown man from Shanxi spent over 100,000 Chinese Yuan ($16,000), for this imperial head soup service. The man was dressed up as one of China’s emperors from the country’s pre-Communist past. A group of women dressed as imperial concubines, waited on him, fed him bananas, and wine, while he bathed.
If there ever was a time in American History that we all need to shout out loud that– “You WILL not take away our rights!” it’s now.
Henson Ong’s speech is simply…fantastic. I got tear eyed…the truth is so rare nowadays, that when I do here it, I get…emotional.
Don’t miss this one!
Okay…so Joran doesn’t exactly have the slick look of the other internet guru’s. When Tom Beebe (Thanks Tom) sent me an article about this guy last week, I must admit, besides being upset about the “cashless’ society that the internet is taking us, I had not thought much about the other side— but I am now.
So Nobody Asks: Is there a downside to the internet?
Men love to invent…and thank God. For the short time they have been here, they went from clubbing each other with clubs, to threatening each other with the atomic bomb proving that many inventions have a double edge sword. One’s man’s ceiling is another man’s floor, and even Paul Simon would admit that he’d rather be a hammer than a nail.
While the sheer genius of the atomic bomb can be marveled at…the world is now in continuous fear of the next ‘nuclear’ attack, and some of us wish that it had never been invented..and did they REALLY think the future consequences of it through?
And so it is with the new digital technology–like the atomic bomb it is having a downside effect. With all the wonderment that has come with the ease of home computers, there is a man who is pointing out, that it could be the destruction of us all.
And that’s where Jaron Lanier comes in. Jaron was a Silicon Valley digital rock star. He was a pioneer and publicizer of virtual-reality technology (computer-simulated experience. ) and knew all the big guys; Jobs, Gates, Zuckerberg, —-Google, Facebook, etc…and he is so upset about what he has created, he is going around the world and warning the rich guys…of what he calls, “digital Maoism.”
Jaron Lanier, calls this “digital Maoism” indicting “internet intellectuals” like Facebook and Google of being “spy agencies.” He wants to subvert the “hive mind,” as the web world’s been called, before it engulfs us all, destroys political discourse, economic stability, the dignity of personhood and leads to “social catastrophe.” Instead of an ever-upward enlightenment, it is just as likely, he argues, that the crowds will devolve into an online lynch mob.
And who could deny this? Remember how excited Obama was about the Arab Spring? Remember how it was declared that the whole thing came about because of FACEBOOK? Without FACEBOOK the riots would not have evolved. But what came of that? While Zuckerberg was taking victory laps with Obama’s plans to get rid of Mubarak, a huge vacuum was created and the Muslim brotherhood jumped into that hole, and took the reigns of power, leaving the ‘useful idiots” staring at their cell phones and wondering what the hell happened.
And Jason sees this as not a good thing. It’s Mob rule…which is what democracy is, and our founders hated it. He explains it as:
“An enabling and foreshadowing of mob rule, not a growth of democracy, but an accretion of tribalism. But it slowly is turning us into a nation of hate-filled trolls. We have economic fear combined with everybody joined together on these instant twitchy social networks which are designed to create mass action. What does it sound like to you? It sounds to me like the prequel to potential social catastrophe.”
And then there’s the economic side, which is much more damaging. Here’s more:
“I’d had a career as a professional musician and what I started to see is that once we made information free, it wasn’t that we consigned all the big stars to the bread lines. They still had mega tour profits. Instead, it was the middle-class people who were consigned to the bread lines. And that was a very large body of people. And all of a sudden there was this weekly ritual, sometimes even daily: ‘Oh, we need to organize a benefit because so and so who’d been a manager of this big studio that closed its doors has cancer and doesn’t have insurance. We need to raise money so he can have his operation.’
And I realized this was a hopeless, stupid design of society and that it was our fault. It really hit on a personal level—this isn’t working. And I think you can draw an analogy to what happened with communism, where at some point you just have to say there’s too much wrong with these experiments. So by taking value off the books, you’re actually shrinking the economy.” whoever has the biggest computer can analyze everyone else to their advantage and concentrate wealth and power. [Meanwhile], it’s shrinking the overall economy. I think it’s the mistake of our age.”
Since Jason is a musician also, he sees the damage here. Gates, Jobs, Zuckerberg, they just don’t get it because the ONLY job they ever had was creating the internet. But when you’re a musician you dream of the hit record, and with free downloads…the monetary rewards of original music went out with the proverbial free downloads onto your hard drive.
And not just musicians…the whole print industry has been changed: thousands of newspapers and magazines have shut down. Think of how many journalists have lost their jobs. And SO much misinformation is put on the internet, it’s hard to tell what’s true and what isn’t.
Many of our schools are getting rid of books, and giving the kids IPADS. They have stopped teaching cursive writing…texting will become so big in the future, that future generations will not even know how to make a complete sentence. Already in China, the kids are forgetting how to read, because all they do is text. Not to mention the waste of time everyone spends on their computers.
AND…when everything is online: books, money—- all that you do and say will go to the few people who run the world and who will have the power to completely control every single thing. Jaron is right. Jason even goes so far as to blame the housing crash on the internet:
“The rise of networking has coincided with the loss of the middle class, instead of an expansion in general wealth, which is what should happen. But if you say we’re creating the information economy, except that we’re making information free, then what we’re saying is we’re destroying the economy.”
To my mind a over leveraged unsecured mortgage is exactly the same thing as a pirated music file. It’s somebody’s value that’s been copied many times to give benefit to some distant party. In the case of the music files, it’s to the benefit of an advertising spy like Google [which monetizes your search history], and in the case of the mortgage, it’s to the benefit of a fund manager somewhere. But in both cases all the risk and the cost is radiated out toward ordinary people and the middle classes—and even worse, the overall economy has shrunk in order to make a few people more.”
We read of online bullying leading to teen suicides in the United States and, in China, there are reports of well-organized online virtual lynch mobs forming…digital Maoism.”
You know, too many of us know someone who has been grieviously hurt by the internet. I know a man whose girlfriend got mad at him, and went online to FACEBOOK and told all kinds of horror stories to their whole network of friends, and it even got back to his work. They were lies, and somehow he forgave her, and they made up, but the damage had been done. This is happening to millions daily. There is no recourse in court….in fact the law can’t keep up with it.
And if you think that the powerful people will think twice about hurting society, remember the story of Zuckerberg. When he first invented FACEBOOK as a student, he put up a very demoralizing contest and rated all the women on his campus as “ugly” or “cute” and everyone on campus got to have fun putting down women. Typical liberal. He was old enough to have a moral compass, but he had none.
It was…disgusting….and yet, Zuckerberg was forgiven for such an insidious prank because he was a genius. The question is, when these young, rich, and sometimes very immature boys work with Presidents, you DO have a Maoism. Zuckerberg has moved to China to avoid taxes.
No doubt Zuckerberg thinks he is saving the world, he’s not like Jaron who sees beyond himself. You COULD say that the internet is a young technology..it will work out the bugs in time.
I’m sure they thought the same thing about nuclear warfare. But unlike the atomic bomb…so far, we’ve been kept pretty safe from it..it doesn’t affect our daily lives. But the internet is working it’s magic every single day. Hopefully…Jaron will make the rich elites think: After all…he’s right…we are NOT gadgets….but like the ‘ape’: We sure do love them.
“Enemy of the State” is one of my favorite movies. Will Smith plays the main character, and he is hunted by the NSA because, although, he doesn’t know it, he was slipped a video of a Senator having someone murdered. It’s a great action film, but I wonder how many people believed in what the film was trying to educate the American public on: Everything we say or do, can be, without warrant..observed. The fact is, all of our data is being stored. The new technology that we are all excited about, is being used by our government to spy on us….and yet, we all are conditioned that it’s necessary.
If you talk about this to ANYONE..they always say, “Well hey! I’m not doing anything wrong, why should I worry?”
Or…as they once said in Nazi Germany, “They didn’t come after ME..I wasn’t Jewish, so I just didn’t worry about it.”
It was around the time of that movie, (1998) that I started noticing blackouts when I was listening to the radio. I couldn’t blame them on just random radio waves causing static, because I observed that they always happened right when some conservative talk show host was about to reveal something sinister about our government. They happened when I listened to Rush Limbaugh, or Alex Jones on Coast to Coast, and many other stations. They still happen time and again, but ONLY when some secret is about to be revealed, so no…I don’t believe my neighbor is turning on his Wi-Fi at the exact same time I’m waiting for the secret to be revealed. Nope—- because this even happens when I’m listening to the radio in my car at the exact moment when I am going, “Wow…I can’t BELIEVE they are going to talk about this…finally…somebody is going to talk about this!” And then you hear the first word and then—–ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ…
Last night I was listening to the radio, and George Noory was interviewing a man who’s FACEBOOK account had been taken down…because he put up a Gandhi quote:
The reports are absolutely true. Facebook suspended the Natural News account earlier today after we posted an historical quote from Mohandas Gandhi. The quote reads:
“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.
This historical quote was apparently too much for Facebook’s censors to bear. They suspended our account and gave us a “final warning” that one more violation of their so-called “community guidelines” would result in our account being permanently deactivated.
Evidently, this is happening to many conservatives sites. I’ve never been a fan of Facebook, because frankly, I think it’s a government dream which is gathering information on you, and your friends, and every single thing about you. And how does this make us any different than China? When Obama gathers all the heads of the great social media sites in the White House, it’s not to talk about his golf game.
He is collaborting with them.
According to an article on Drudge: China has tightened internet controls, legalizing the deletion of posts or pages which are deemed to contain “illegal” information.
So, now we are starting it here. We are becoming China.
Because this is happening in bits and pieces, no one is much concerned about this. But yesterday I checked out a book at the library, and for the first time (I’m been checking out library books for over 50 years.) I found blocks of paragraphs …just blacked out. (see photo)
So, they couldn’t block the book, but now it seems the government can blank out what they don’t want the public to read.
Add up all these little bits and pieces and you can see what’s coming.
Now, the aim is to “fundamentally” change America, and destroying our Bill of Righs..free speech, guns, and right to privacy is already in the making. And the words of Sam Donaldson are freightening. He indicates that tea party people’s ideas are old and outdated, but the fact is, these old and outdated rights of freedom are being replaced with the new tyranny of soft communism…and Sam considers himself privy to the “new America” where one man will decide just about everything.
The tea party people are for freedom. It’s that simple.
The “tea party” people, are being attacked like the Jews of old. And pretty soon, putting up any quotation from the Constitution will be taken down.
It’s been done bit by bit…on purpose, but be prepared for one day to wake up, and like my friend Mona says…on our TV will be…”THE STATE.”
And if you don’t go along with it…you will be…the enemy. If you are a “tea party” American patriot…you already are.
Remember…once upon a time Sam Adams head was on the top of King George’s list. You are in…good company.
Our founders gave us the best Constitution in the world…let’s not lose it.
I remember how shocked I was upon hearing Mitt Romney, on one of his last debates, talk about how wonderful China was. He toned down his previous points about how they manipulate their currency. But China has beat all of the big business men at their own game. For instance: Take Jeffery Immelt, Obama’s Jobs Czar. (Who pays no taxes) Communism, he believes is superior to our political system. Evidently enslaving millions of people is not much of a concern to Jeffery.
It’s official: They are not making much of a secret about it: Some of our top American businessmen, and the politicians they keep in office, want a slicked version of communism right here in America..and keeping the parties at each other’s throats daily will help convince us all soon that’s it’s the way we should go.
The Chinese have stolen all our technology, and used the greed of our most successful businessmen to destroy us. But many of these big shots like Immelt, prefer to deal with just a few men, to give them monopolies. It’s a dream of power that makes Ayn Rand look like a Mickey Mouse story.
Jeffery Immelt didn’t hold back his feelings on just how much he admires the Chinese. It’s rather sickening…how MUCH he admires them.
And now, we have Warren Buffet pushing communism along with George Soros.
Investors Warren Buffett and George Soros are calling on Congress to increase the estate tax as lawmakers near a decision on tax policies that expire Dec. 31. This action threatens 526,421 family farms, of about 25 percent of all farms in America, according to a Senate analysis. Many farm and ranch families would be forced to sell their assets to satisfy Washington Democrats’ insatiable appetite for tax money. Up to 24 percent of America’s farm and ranch families could be forced to hand over a large chunk of their heritage to the Internal Revenue Service when a family member dies. This would economically devastate rural communities.
And HOW would that benefit Warren Buffet? After these family farms are finally are sold off…that will clear up land for Buffet’s railroads, AND get more people into the cities, where Obama plans to make us a competitor to China. People are to be gently pushed Into the cities, where they can be monitored daily with camera’s. Detroit and St. Louis will become agricultural centers. All those buildings will make way for workers to plant and harvest to feed the world.
Think I’m making this up?
When they control the land, the food, the water, and keep you in poverty, the only thing you can if you have any money left…
Is move to Canada, or Belgium where the French are flocking! This man, bless his heart, even shows you the way—
A man should be allowed to pass his land and his farms to his children and their children.
And after the farms…what will they come for next,—-Doctor Zhivago?
“The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God … anarchy and tyranny commence. PROPERTY MUST BE SECURED OR LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST” –John Adams
