Slovak 'neo-Nazi' wins election in Banska Bystrica

Marian Kotleba, head of the ultra-nationalist Our Slovakia party, speaks at a press conference (November 24, 2013)
Ultra-nationalist Marian Kotleba was not expected to win the regional poll
A right-wing extremist has been elected regional governor of Banska Bystrica in central Slovakia.
Marian Kotleba won 55.5% of the vote in the run-off against Vladimir Manka from the Smer-Social Democrat party.
Mr Kotleba is a former leader of a banned far-right organisation who now leads the ultra-nationalist Our Slovakia party.
He has previously organised marches against Slovakia's Roma minority.
The now-banned neo-Nazi party which Mr Kotleba formerly led had expressed sympathy for the Nazi puppet state which ruled Slovakia during World War II.
The former teacher has called for Slovakia to withdraw from Nato, which his party brands a "terrorist" organisation.
Of Slovakia's other seven regions, six were won by the social democrats, the party of the Prime Minister Robert Fico, according to AP.
A National Socialist governor!  You see, it CAN be done.  But it won't happen unless we MAKE it happen.  Somebody isn't going to do it for us.
We can't win if we don't run.  It's all up to us - and that means YOU!
If you're the type that sits around griping about things and doing little else, then it will NEVER happen here.
If you are willing to try, contact us.  We can help.  If it's the cost, don't worry.  After all you won't be running for president or senator.  Low level offices usually have no filing fee and the campaign can be the cost of a few hundred fliers.
I like to repost the following every now and again because it says so much.  I really wish I knew who the author of this little gem is because it says so much.
This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.  
There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.  
Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.  
Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.  
Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.  
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done. 
That just about says it all.

Why Are Big Retailers Trying to Kill Thanksgiving?

In case you haven't noticed, Black Friday isn't just on Friday anymore. The retail industry's high-density mass of starry lights, Santa dioramas, and door-buster shopping deals really ought to be renamed the Black Hole—it just keeps sucking up everything around it. That holiday known as Thanksgiving? Pretty much gone. Especially if you work for one of the nation's largest retailers.
In 2006, Bart Reed, Best Buy Co.'s consumer marketing director, told the Charleston Gazettethat the company had decided not to open its stores any earlier than 5 a.m. on Black Friday because it wanted to give its employees a "work-life balance." Then, five years later, Best Buy moved its Black Friday opening back to Thursday at midnight. This year, for the first time, it will open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
Best Buy is far from alone in its cold-hearted greed. The chart above shows how America's biggest retailers have competed in recent years to appeal to crazed shoppers at the expense of their employees—not to mention the one holiday where we're supposed to contemplate being grateful for what we've got, rather than just coveting more stuff.
The undisputed leader in the assault on Thanksgiving is cleary Kmart, which has opened its doors on Turkey Day for the past 22 years. Yet this sad legacy hasn't stopped Kmart from finding ways to make its workers even more miserable. For Thanksgiving 2010, Kmart closed at the arguably reasonable hour of 9 p.m. In 2011, it closed at 4 p.m. and then reopened four hours later, before closing at 3 a.m. on Black Friday. That must not have been crazy enough, since this year Kmart will open at 6 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day and stay open for 40 hours straight, not closing until 11 p.m. on Black Friday.
That sounds pretty bad, until you consider that for years many Walmart stores have been open 24 hours a day, including Thanksgiving. This year Walmart will roll out its Black Friday specials at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving, when it will presumably need to bulk up its stores with more associates who'd normally be eating turkey with their families. At least some 24-hour Walmarts used to close on Thanksgiving Day: "Local Wal-Marts open at 5 a.m. [on Black Friday], with 24-hour stores closing for Thanksgiving and reopening then," reads a 2006 story from California's Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.
At least one mega-retailer has resisted the Black Hole: Costco. The unionized big box chain will remain closed on Thanksgiving and open on Friday at its regular hour of 10:00 a.m. The company wants it workers to be able to spend time with their families, Costco CFO Richard Galanti told me. "It's pretty straightforward: It's a major holiday with family and friends, our employees work hard, and it's the right thing to do," he said. "Black Friday used to open at 6 a.m., then at 3 a.m., then at 12:01 a.m.—when does it stop?"
There's not much too add.  Mr. Harkinson hit the nail on the head.
I would like to add that anyone who went shopping on Thanksgiving Day is in my opinion nothing less than scum.  It doesn't matter if you didn't have anyplace to go or anything else to do.  It's the principle.  The beast is growing stronger and those who shopped on Thursday are helping it grow even faster.  After all, if enough people don't go shopping that day, then the stores will stop Black Thursday because there will be no point to it.
Folks, shop for your families of course, but let's try and control the greed.  When you match the enemy's greed, then you become the enemy.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Of course you know they've now pushed Black Friday up to Thanksgiving Day.  That way they get an extra day of Christmas shopping.  It doesn't matter that Thanksgiving Day will be ruined for their employees.

Folks, let's not support this further act of greed by the Judeo-Capitalists.  Don't go Christmas shopping on Thanksgiving. You may miss out on some bargains, but we have to draw the line somewhere.  At some point we have to place what is right before a bargain.

Rather than go shopping for your kids, this time DON'T go shopping for them.  By going along with Thanksgiving shopping you may be able to buy a bargain for your kids, but you may be selling their futures in the process.  Say "NO" to Black Thursday.

Israel's Netanyahu Says Iran Nuclear Deal a 'Historic Mistake'

Image: Israel's Netanyahu Says Iran Nuclear Deal a 'Historic Mistake'
Racist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu [my comment - Dan]

Sunday, 24 Nov 2013 06:31 AM

JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the agreement between world powers and Iran as a ‘historic mistake’ that doesn’t bind his country.

Israel has “the right and obligation” to defend itself and won’t allow Iran to develop the capability to build atomic weapons, Netanyahu said today at a cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.

“What was achieved last night in Geneva is not historic; it is a historic mistake. Today, the world has become a much more dangerous place,” he said in comments broadcast on Israel Radio. “Israel is not bound by this agreement.”

Diplomats said they had a deal early today, the fifth day of meetings in Geneva. The first accord since the Iranian nuclear program came under international scrutiny in 2003 eases sanctions on Iran in exchange for concessions on its atomic work.

Israel’s rejection of the agreement puts it at odds with its closest ally, the U.S., which led the efforts to reach a deal with Iran. An administration official said President Barack Obama would call Netanyahu today to discuss the accord.

Israel wanted world powers to oblige Iran to stop enriching uranium and dismantle an unfinished heavy water reactor at Arak that could eventually produce plutonium, materials that could be used to produce weapons. The Geneva agreement limits uranium enrichment under close monitoring and halts any further development of the Arak reactor.

“This deal will create a new arms race that includes the Middle East,” Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said. Finance Minister Yair Lapid said he was concerned that the accord means “the world is no longer listening to Israel.”

Israeli officials have described Iran’s nuclear program as an existential threat, saying all options are on the table to stop it, including a military strike.

“The Iranian regime is committed to Israel’s destruction, and Israel has the right to defend itself, by itself,” Netanyahu said to his cabinet. “Israel won’t let Iran develop military nuclear capability.”

Iran says its program is intended for peaceful purposes.

Israeli Economy Minister Naftali Bennett said yesterday that any deal Israel perceived as bad would increase the chances it would consider military force against Iran.

“A bad deal definitely increases the need for action,” Bennett said on Channel Two television. “If the deal gives Iran the ability to achieve a bomb within six weeks, we won’t be able to sit idly by.”

Alex Zabezhinsky, chief economist at Tel Aviv-based Meitav DS Investment House Ltd., said the agreement reduced risks.

“The deal reduces the risk of military action on Iran by the West or Israel,” he said by phone. “As a result, we are likely to see Israel’s country risk decline.”

Eldad Pardo, a lecturer on Iranian affairs at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said Israel opposes the agreement because its interim nature recalls the 1993 Oslo Accords with the Palestinians, which never ripened into a final peace deal.

“If you reach very quick agreements on what is easy and leave the difficult issues to some future, it may take years,” he said.

Now with Iran, “there is a kind of temporary agreement that will lead to another temporary agreement,” he said. “This isn’t a first step within an agreed-upon structure of where we are heading.


Israel is upset with the idea of easing sanctions against Iran?  Wow!  What a surprise!  Who would have thought it?

Seeing as that Iran is a sworn mortal enemy of Israel it's no surprise that Netanyahu (a notorious racist towards ALL non-Jews) would be against any deal that is good for Iran.  Bearing that in mind - although I'm not a big fan of Islamists - I say if Israel is against this, it's probably a good thing for the rest of the world. Besides, the last thing we need is another stupid war.

In 1980, I was 20 years old when the Iranian Revolution occurred along with the seizing of our embassy in Teheran.  I vividly remember the hostage crisis, and the inept way Peanuts Carter handled it.  But I think it's time we let go of it and moved on - and if it pisses Israel off, then so much the better.

'Zombies' Help Candidate in San Diego Mayoral Bid

Thursday, 21 Nov 2013 04:05 PM
By John Gizzi

Democrat David Alvarez unexpectedly placed second in Tuesday's mayoral contest, knocking out a candidate long considered a cinch to be one of the top vote-getters, and will join Republican Kevin Faulconer in a run-off early next year.

Although many point to Alvarez's support from key union leaders for his advancing past former state legislator Nathan Fletcher, who had placed second in nearly every poll, other observers in San Diego credit anti-Fletcher TV spots that featured zombies.

That's right. Zombies.

The mindless creatures featured in horror productions, from George Romero's 1968 cult classic "Night of the Living Dead" to the current hit AMC TV series "Walking Dead," were unleashed in independent commercials underscoring Fletcher's change of positions as he continually changed party affiliations, switching in earlier races from Republican to independent to Democrat.

"Nathan Fletcher courted the tea party with anti-immigrant rhetoric, but then he switched his principles when he ran for mayor," said the narration to the ad, as a hoard of zombies lumber Frankenstein-style at dusk. 

"He bashed labor unions and supported pension reform, but then he switched his principles again. Now he's against pension reform and supports spending billions – but wait! He's switching again!"

Finally, an exasperated zombie declares: "This guy keeps switching his principles – on every issue! I can't keep mindlessly following Nathan Fletcher! And I'm mindless!"

The commercials were paid for by an independent expenditure known as "Zombies for Responsible Government." They began airing online on, appropriately, on Halloween.

"We only spent $1,800 on pre-roll ads on Youtube to launch it, but once Twitter lit it up, the paid media was practically irrelevant," explained veteran California media maestro Wayne Johnson. "The real definition of virality is when an ad skips channels – crosses over into other media, in this case radio and television. Every station in San Diego did lengthy segments on 'Zombies' and showed the ad, often several times."

Johnson credits the success of the zombies spot to their unique flavor. 

"San Diego is a very conventional media market, particularly in politics. Most of the spots are 'talking heads' and endorsements, with very few campaigns using media platforms as robustly as they might," Johnson told Newsmax.

The results speak for themselves. 

In every poll conducted right up to Halloween, Fletcher always placed a strong second behind Falconer and ran ahead of fellow Democrat Alvarez. According to a UT San Diego/Channel 10 News Poll conducted just as the zombie spots began, Faulconer topped the field of candidates with 41 percent of the vote. Coming in second with 28 percent was Fletcher, and fellow Democrat Alvarez was at 17 percent.

In the same survey completed on the Sunday before the voting, Falconer was at 40 percent, Fletcher had fallen down to 24 percent, and Alvarez rose to 22 percent.

On Election Day, Falconer secured first place with 43.58 percent. But it was Alvarez who eked out second place with 25.59 percent to 24.3 percent for Fletcher. 

Fletcher lost the run-off position by less than 3,000 votes.

"While Nathan Fletcher's drop in the polls seemed to mirror the run of 'Zombies,' the fact is that there were several very well-run campaigns going on," said Johnson. "In that sense, I think 'Zombies' was a catalyst. It seemed to turn Nathan from the Teflon candidate into the Velcro candidate. Everything started to stick."

"Ironically, the Zombies never actually took a position on any issue, other than the flipping on issues itself," Johnson said.


Somehow this is very appropriate.  Despite the fact that George Romero shot the original "Night Of The Living Dead" on location in Pennsylvania, the real walking dead started here in California. When it comes to politics, with most Californians, they're still walking long after their brains have died.

I think AMC's "Walking Dead" is more of a commentary on politics.  On the show, zombies are after the few remaining living people.  In real life, the brain dead are out to screw over the few people left who can still think for themselves.

Last Tuesday we had another great episode of Talkshoe Radio.  Chairman Suhayda was there as well as SA Political Advisor John Taylor Bowles.  The primary topic was running for office, and how to go about getting started.  I hope you were listening.

Also, I would like to announce that the ANP Southwest/West Coast Division is having another regional meeting on Friday, November 29 (day after Thanksgiving).  We'll be having comrades from both California and Arizona in attendance.  

If you would like to attend, contact me at  The meeting is open only to members and official supporters in good standing unless personally invited by myself.  The details will be given to those who show a serious committment to attend.  

I won't name the place on an open blog, but I think it's the town they filmed "Bad Day At Black Rock" in. The last time I was there I kept looking to see if I could spot Spencer Tracy.  I think they filmed "The Hills Have Eyes II" there as well.  What I'm getting at is it's a one horse desert town, but it's centrally located.  I really prefer our original location, but it's just not fair to ask our Arizona people to drive an extra two hours each way.

Finally, "Sense And Sensibility" has just passed the 130,000 visitor mark.  Thanks to all of you who made this possible - especially those who send me articles to post now and again.  It's a big help I assure you.

That's it for this time.  Hail Victory!

FDA moves toward abolishing trans fats

Trans fats, long a source of controversy for being linked to health problems, may be getting kicked out of the American food supply.
The FDA announced Thursday that there is no safe level of partially hydrogenated oils. The move — unusually bold for an agency that typically leaves additive safety to the private sector — is the first step in what could be a long road to removing trans fats, which are still widely used to improve the texture and shelf stability of processed foods like frosting, doughnuts and crackers.
“The agency has made a preliminary determination that partially hydrogenated oils, a major source of trans fat in processed food, are not generally recognized as safe for food,” FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg told reporters during a conference call Thursday morning, referencing the regulatory standard used by the agency to determine the safety of food ingredients.

“Generally recognized as safe” is industry-speak for a substance that food manufacturers have self-determined is safe. Under its proposal, FDA would rescind trans fat’s GRAS status.

Hamburg was blunt in describing partially hydrogenated oils, saying they are “a man-made not naturally occurring substance that increases the risk of heart disease.”

The commissioner said further reduction of the amount of trans fats in the American diet could prevent an additional 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths from heart disease each year. She called the agency’s announcement “a critical step in the protection of Americans’ health.”

The agency is accepting comments for 60 days, and then, if finalized, food manufacturers could only use partially hydrogenated oils if they apply to use them as food additives, which means companies would have to determine they do not harm the public health.

Trans fats have been under attack for some years. New York City and other cities have banned restaurants from using them. Since 2006, when the agency required labeling, consumption has reduced from about 4.6 grams per day on average to 1 gram a day. The Institute of Medicine, in 2010, recommended reducing their consumption.

Now FDA has decided further action is needed. The agency says it wants comments from industry on how long it would take to remove the ingredient from food products.

“We know if we finalize our determination it may take some time to eliminate [partially hydrogenated oils],” Michael Taylor, deputy commissioner for foods and veterinary medicine, said during the conference call. “And we know that removing PHO from products like frosting is more challenging.”

Taylor and Hamburg both emphasized the importance of receiving industry input about the transition away from trans fats. They said they wanted to be fair to stakeholders and sensitive to reformulation concerns and timelines.

The food industry responded to Thursday’s news by saying that it’s already working on the problem. It doesn’t appear to be offering any resistance so far to the proposal.

“Product safety is the No. 1 priority for America’s food and beverage companies and we invest our reputations and resources to provide consumers with safe and nutritious products that meet their preferences and lifestyle needs,” said Leon Bruner, chief science officer for the Grocery Manufacturers Association, in an email.

“Through our efforts at product reformulation and the development of suitable alternatives, trans fats that are not naturally occurring have been drastically reduced in the food supply,” said Bruner, noting that food manufacturers have voluntarily lowered the amounts of trans fats in their food products by more than 73 percent since 2005.

“Consumers can be confident that their food is safe and we look forward to working with the FDA to better understand their concerns and how our industry can better serve consumers.”

Under FDA’s proposal, to use trans fats in the future, food manufacturers would need to make the case to FDA that there is reasonable certainty of no harm by submitting a formal additive petition and have it approved by the agency — a much more stringent process than most food ingredients have to go through currently.

“Companies are free to petition,” explained Taylor, but they would have to meet that “rigorous standard.” Considering the Institute of Medicine has concluded that trans fat provides “no known health benefit and that there is no safe level of consumption of artificial trans fat,” that would likely be a tough case for food manufacturers to make. IOM has explicitly said that consumption of trans fats should be “as low as possible.”

The timeline ahead is still unclear, however.

“We will review the comments and then make a determination,” Hamburg said. Only then will FDA give a specific timeline about what’s ahead. Taylor said the agency would move as “rapidly as we reasonably can.”

“We made this preliminary determination on a considerable body of evidence,” Hamburg said. “I think we need to have this period of public comment. We need to continue to work with stakeholders and get feedback. But I think industry has already recognized both the public health concern and public health interest in reducing trans fat.”

There is no safe level of consumption of artificial trans fats, Hamburg stressed.

Consumer advocates are applauding the FDA’s actions.

“Artificial trans fat is a uniquely powerful promoter of heart disease, and today’s announcement will hasten its eventual disappearance from the food supply,” says Michael Jacobson, executive director for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, in a statement issued immediately preceding the announcement. “Not only is artificial trans fat not safe, it’s not remotely necessary. Many companies, large and small, have switched to healthier oils over the past decade. I hope that those restaurants and food manufacturers that still use this harmful ingredient see the writing on the wall and promptly replace it.”


Uncle Samuel (I think his last name is Cohen) thinks that now he has the authority to tell you what you can and cannot eat.  Now I'm not defending unhealthy foods, just our right to decide for ourselves whether we will eat them or not.  But Uncle Samuel and his Nannycrats have other ideas.
One other thing.  Haven't you noticed that the healthier foods cost more?  You can buy a can of Pringles for about a buck.  But Pringles Fat Free costs about three bucks.  Sure I'd like to eat healthier, but if I want some potato chips, a can for a buck beats three bucks any day.  I'm on a budget.  I eat what I can afford - as do so many of us these days.  I even do part of my grocery shopping at a 99 Cents store.
Sometimes I get a great deal of satisfaction in being an "I told you so."
When the government started picking on tobacco, how many people had the attitude, "Well, this doesn't effect me.  I don't smoke."  So you went along with it because it wasn't any skin off of your apple.  
But there were those of us smokers who warned that when they finished with tobacco, they would come after alcohol (especially beer and you know how much Americans love their beer) and junk food.  We just didn't know which one was next on their hit list.  Well you beer lovers can relax - for the moment - because it seems junk food is next on the chopping block.  But make no mistake - beer is next.
I should also like to point out that Hitler did not drink, smoke, was a vegitarian, and only indulged in junk food on special occasions - and even then he rarely had a full serving.  Yet he never attempted to prevent the people from using these things - even if it was for their own good.  He understood that he was their Fuhrer, not their nanny.
The government needs to keep their noses out of peoples personal lives.  Uncle Samuel, I'm a grown man.  If I want to eat candy for breakfast then I'll bloody well eat candy for breakfast.  It's MY choice - not yours.

Mexican vigilantes, battling cartel, take over another town

Mexican citizens arm themselves against organized crime and corrupt government officials.
Vigilantes belonging to a "self-defense" movement took over another town in the Mexican state of Michoacan Saturday amid confrontations that left two people dead and three wounded.

State prosecutor's spokeswoman Magdalena Guzman said the clash took place in a hamlet near the town of Tancitaro, where "self-defense" patrol members occupied the town hall and main square in a bid to kick out the western state's dominant Knights Templar drug cartel.
The Michoacan state government said the vigilantes came from two nearby towns and that police and prosecutors had been sent to Tancitaro.
Vigilantes, some wearing bandanas or ski masks and carrying assault rifles, could be seen lounging in the town's picturesque square. Soldiers and police stood guard, to prevent further violence.
Investigators are working to determine whether the dead in Saturday's confrontation are vigilantes or Knights Templar gunmen.
Residents in about a half-dozen Michoacan towns have risen up since February to shake off the dominance of the pseudo-religious cartel, which levied heavy and wide-ranging extortion payments on the population.
Authorities have said that some of the vigilantes are supported by a rival drug cartel from the neighboring state of Jalisco, an accusation the self-styled "self-defense" forces deny.
A "Dr. Mireles," described as general counsel for the Citizen's Self Defense Council for Tepalcatepec, said in a video submitted to the Borderland Beat blog that what was happening in Michoacan was "a case of civil, not peaceful, resistance and defense...Fear had crossed the line of what was permissible and imaginary."
He continued: "The failed state was no longer a myth; the loss of political, social, economic and judicial control became undeniable. Citizens and rural people from all social strata organized, armed themselves and decided to confront, using the only means within their reach, the rule of organized crime. Forced by their tragedy, they chose to break the rules to decide their lives and recover their freedom. Every people has a limit."
Hipolito Mora Chavez, described in the same video as the leader of the La Ruana Self Defense Group, said: "I think that the cities are going to do what we are doing, fighting, rising up for their freedom. Because that's what it's all about, freedom, that we no longer had here."
A vision of the future?  It could very well be.
As Dr. Mireles said, "Every people has a limit."
Evidently, the people of this Michoacan (mich-oh-WAH-ken) village have reached theirs and responded accordingly.  Good for them.  Considering how much worse the government corruption is in Mexico, it's about damn time.
Folks, we are heading down the same road as Mexico.  They're just quite a bit ahead of us is all.  The United States will catch up eventually - unless we can turn things around with National Socialism.
A system that works FOR it's people, like National Socialism, rather than exploiting its people like Judeo-Capitalism, will never rot from the inside like ours is.  Remember, the Thousand Year Reich was brought down from the OUTSIDE, not from within.
It's up to all of us.  Do we stay on the road we are on now and end up like Mexico, or do we strike out in a whole new direction?  The road to ruin is often paved with good intentions.
Judeo-Capitalist democracy promises much such as freedom and prosperity for all.  But in reality those promises are lies.  It's true for the one percent, but as for the rest of us, we can look forward to an increasingly bleak future at the hands of those who view the working class as expendable commodities like cattle.
Well it's time for the cattle to take their fair share from those who would keep it all.

Craig Cobb, White Supremacist, Arrested On 3 Counts Of Terrorizing

The Huffington Post  |  By 

Craig Cobb, a white supremacist who recently found out he's part black, was arrested on Saturday according to a report from The Bismark Tribune.
Cobb and fellow neo-Nazi Kynan Dutton were taken into custody after Leith, N.D., residents called 911 to tell police that the men had confronted them with a rifle and a shotgun. The sheriff told the Tribune that the men will be charged with three counts of terrorizing.
Cobb sent this text message to the Tribune before he was taken into custody:
Because of the many violences (sic) and harassments against we (sic) and the children, we have commenced armed patrols of Leith.
Cobb moved to Leith a few months ago to create a haven for white supremacists. He purchased 16 plots of land and invited fellow white supremacists to join him. Though his endeavor was off to a slow start in August, Cobb wasn't discouraged.
"If I'm the only one in Leith forever, white consciousness has already been raised," he said at the time.
Good job dude.  Thanks for setting the movement back even more.  Are you guys working for the Feds or something?  The ADL?  You sure helped their cause more than ours.
This is not the way to advance our cause.  Running for office is.  Next year is a big election year. This is a good time to run for office.  It's easy to get on the ballot, and for lower offices all you would need for campaign materials are xerox copies or a computer printer.  Hand out your campaign fliers just like you would our literature.  Don't do both at the same time of course.  It's best to run under-the-wire.  The media won't attack you if they don't know who you are.  
We need YOU to run.  We'll help you, so what's your excuse?  Money?  Most of these offices PAY.  Time?  Most of these offices require only a few hours a week.  Small town city councils meet once a week for two hours.  There are no legitimate excuses so get on it!
BTW, so what if Cobb is 14 percent Black?  It's not like he's the product of an interracial marriage. He had a Black ancestor about four generations ago, and since he's only 14 percent Black, his family has been clean ever since.  Even Hitler would not have kept him out of the NSDAP for that. The SS yes, but not the general party.

Seattle Elects Socialist Candidate to City Council

Saturday, 16 Nov 2013 09:33 AM

Seattle voters have elected a socialist to city council for the first time in modern history.

Kshama Sawant's lead continued to grow on Friday, prompting 16-year incumbent Richard Conlin to concede.

Even in this liberal city, Sawant's win has surprised many here. Conlin was backed by the city's political establishment. On election night, she trailed by four percentage points. She wasn't a veteran politician, having only run in one previous campaign.

But in the days following election night, Sawant's share of the votes outgrew Conlin's.

"I don't think socialism makes most people in Seattle afraid," Conlin said Friday.

While city council races are technically non-partisan, Sawant made sure people knew she was running as a socialist — a label that would be politically poisonous in many parts of the country.

Sawant, a 41-year-old college economics professor, first drew attention as part of local Occupy Wall Street protests that included taking over a downtown park and a junior college campus in late 2011. She then ran for legislative office in 2012, challenging the powerful speaker of the state House, a Democrat. She was easily defeated.

This year, though, she pushed a platform that resonated with the city. She backed efforts to raise the minimum wage to $15; called for rent control in the city where rental prices keep climbing; and supports a tax on millionaires to help fund a public transit system and other services.

"I will reach out to the people who supported Richard Conlin, working with everyone in Seattle to fight for a minimum wage of $15 (an) hour, affordable housing, and the needs of ordinary people," Sawant said in a statement.

During her campaign, she condemned economic inequality, contending that some people aren't benefiting from the city's declining jobless rate, ongoing recovery from the recession, and downtown building boom.
"She's passionate about her values," Conlin said.

Research showed no socialist candidate had won a citywide office in the past 100 years. The last socialist candidate to make it into the general election was in 1991 and was defeated, said Scott Cline, the city's archivist.

I'll make this short.  If the socialists can win a major election - and city council in one of the 20 largest cities in America certainly counts as a major election in my book - then we can certainly win smaller elections.  We just need a few things first:  People who are willing to try.  You can't win if you don't run.
Except for city attorney and judges (you need a law degree), most offices require no college.  Even mayor of a large city like Los Angeles does not require any college.  Even president doesn't require higher education. 
How many of you live in small towns where farmers and shopkeepers hold town council positions?   Even here in Rialto city council only pays about $50,000 a year.  Hardly attractive to the millionaires club. Anyone can run.  As for myself, I won't mention any plans to run on an open blog.
Comrades, we can help you.  If you don't know what to do or how to get started we can help.  But we need YOU to take up the challenge first.  Let's start working towards some real change, and that starts with real National Socialists running for attainable offices (many of which are often unopposed). How about?  If not now, when?
Reminder:  ANP Radio today, November 19, at 5:00 PM PST.  I'll be listening for you.

Big Business Pushes for More Foreign Workers, but Data Show Jobs are Still Scarce

Earlier today, Pres. Obama brought several business executives to the White House to discuss ways to encourage the House to vote on the Schumer-Rubio amnesty bill, S.744, before the end of the year. The bill, which would result in 33 million new work permits being issued in the first 10 years by granting amnesty to 11-18 million illegal aliens and doubling annual legal immigration flows, is being sold by the White House as a way to boost the economy and create jobs.

I continue to be hopeful that with the leadership of many who are around this table who represent hundreds of thousands of employees and billions of dollars of assets, who are important in their communities all across the country, them joining up with law enforcement, clergy, citizens, to make the case that ultimately folks up on Capitol Hill will do the right thing.
-- Pres. Obama
There was one group that wasn't represented, however, at today's White House meeting - America's unemployed.
According to the latest national unemployment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 90 million working-age Americans are not in the labor force. Part of that group includes the more than 20 million Americans who want a full-time job but can't find one.
A non-partisan think tank in Washington D.C., the Economic Policy Institute, keeps tabs on the number of unemployed workers in each industry and compares it with the number of available jobs. On their most recent update, not one of the 17 industries they track has a worker shortage.
Attending Pres. Obama's meeting today were Arne Sorenson, the president and CEO of Marriott, and Don Thompson, president and CEO of McDonalds, both are pushing for increases in foreign workers, and yet, according to the EPI chart, the accomodation and food service industry currently has three unemployed workers for every open job.
Also in attendance were Roger Altman, founder and chairman of the investment firm Evercore Partners, Greg Brown, chairman and CEO of Motorola, and Joe Echevarria, CEO of Deloitte. Once again, the EPI data show a huge number of unemployed workers in the field compared to available jobs in professional and business services - roughly two unemployed Americans for every available job.
The Economic Policy Institute says that it focuses on the economic condition of low- and middle-income Americans and their families. It receives nearly a third of its funding from unions. The organization states on its website that it supports "comprehensive immigration reform", but it did oppose the Schumer-Rubio amnesty because it didn't do nearly enough to stop illegal immigration and prevent employers from hiring illegal workers in the future, among other things.

How much longer are America's workers going to stand for this?  What the hell is wrong with them?  Half the country is either unemployed or underemployed.  Don't pay any attention to the government's statistics.  When they count the unemployed, they only count those who are still looking for work.  If you're still unemployed when your unemployment insurance runs out, you are no longer counted.  They also don't count agricultural workers for some reason. Probably another gimmick to make their numbers look better.
When putting out statistics, there are good facts, and real facts.  Real facts are the truth - plain and simple.  Good facts may be truth or lies, depending on which facilitates the agenda in question.
The chart above is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  Those are real facts.
On the other hand, the government uses the good fact method.  They tell the truth only when it is convenient to their agenda.  Otherwise they put out a pack of lies, half-truths, and distortions. Big surprise.
The ANP uses the real fact method.  I've learned from practical experience that lies usually come back to bite you on the ass which is very uncomfortable considering how much I love sitting.  LOL
If you enjoy fairy tales, then stick with the government's statistics.  If you want the truth, come to the ANP.
