Wal-Mart Finds A Way To Drain Even More Money From its Employees

Given the behavior of Wal-Mart in recent years, one would be justified in wondering whether or not the retail giant is actually operating a think-tank tasked with coming up with new ways to make its employees’ lives devoid of any semblance of dignity and reasonable living standards. Indeed, Wal-Mart is doing its part in the global fight against worker’s rights and the living standards of the world’s population as well as attempting to assist in the implementation of scientific feudalism variety as the chosen system of the planet.

Wal-Mart’s latest action is case in point.

As if its absurdly low wages, atrocious labor practices,  and generally dehumanizing policies were not enough, Wal-Mart has now decided to make changes to its “dress code” that will force already financially strapped (to say the least) employees pay for their own work clothes.

While the issue may not sound like such a bad practice, Wal-Mart has been providing work “uniforms” and/or work clothes for its employees in the past. Of course, even after the new changes, Wal-Mart employees will be forced to comply with the Wal-Mart “dress code.” However, this time, they will be forced to pay for the clothes out of their own pocket. For an employee that already makes minimum wage with no benefits and is treated like garbage by Wal-Mart’s labor policies, the extra money it will take to buy new sets (or even just one set) or polo shirts, khakis, and skirts will cut into the worker’s budget significantly.

As one might suspect, those employees who have been attempting to fight for some modicum of worker’s rights and to force Wal-Mart to the bargaining table have once again reacted with anger at Wal-Mart’s decision.

Associated Press Investigates Americans Supporting ISIS - Forgets John McCain

Except John McCain - Anthony Freda Art

In the latest attempt at misdirection by the mainstream media, the Associated Press has attempted to investigate and present a focus on Americans who become jihadist fighters in battlefields across the world such as Syria and Iraq and, eventually, the United States.

In their article, “Tracing Shift From Everyday Americans To Jihadis,” The Associated Press writers present the profile of American jihadists as lonely, unhappy individuals feeling lost and hopeless in the land of the free and endless entertainment. These individuals are simply unable to get on board with Americas war on the Middle East and become radicalized by those preaching jihad in mosques around the world. The sermons simply make sense to these people, the AP writers claim, and a jihadi is soon born.

For instance, they write,

A college dropout from Florida. A nurse's aide from Denver. The owner of a pizza-and-wings joint from upstate New York. 
Except for their embrace of Islam, there's no common profile for the 100-plus Americans who have traveled to Syria to join Islamic fighters or are accused of supporting them from the United States. 
Their reasons for joining an extremist cause a half-world away are as varied as their geography and life stories.

Congress Votes To Fight ISIS By Funding ISIS To Fight Assad

On September 17, 2014, the United States House of Representatives voted to approve the White House plan to arm and train the alleged “moderate” Syrian rebels. The vote was 273-156 in favor of the $500 million plan. Of course, the bill in question was actually an amendment that was cynically attached to a billdesigned to continue funding for the federal government in the short-term, ensuring maximum support from members of the House.

Then, on Thursday September 19, the U.S. Senate followed suit by approving the plan as well. The support for the plan in the Senate was, as expected, bipartisan with members such as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John McCain, John Boehner, and Lindsey Graham voting “Yes” on the bill.

The Obama administration reiterated that it was neither asking for permission nor for a new authorization to use military force. The White House asserts that it has all the authority it needs to achieve its goals under the authorizations to use military force that were approved after the 9/11 attacks and in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Essentially, as Obama stated in his address to the American people on September 10, the consultation of Congress was a mere formality. The plan to aid the “moderate rebels” fighting against Assad and engage in airstrikes against the secular government was going ahead regardless of the decision by Congress.

Much like the decision to invade Afghanistan and Iraq as well as passing the PATRIOT ACT, and other Constitution-shredding legislation, Congress was convinced to support the plan both because their handlers directed them to do so or because the risk of revealing themselves as completely irrelevant was too damaging to undertake.

Exclusive: Obama Partnering with the House of Saud is a terrible strategy - Brandon Turbeville Interviewed By Joshua Cook Of BenSwann.com

On Sunday, the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he was “extremely encouraged” by Saudi Arabia joining the U.S. coalition to fight ISIS. But should Kerry be so enthusiastic? Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, why does the U.S. government still consider Saudi Arabia to be our ally?

According to former Secretary of State and potential U.S. president candidate Hillary Clinton, ISIS has received funding from the Saudis.

Eight years after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Clinton, wrote in a cable leaked by WikiLeaks that “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaeda, the Taliban, LeT (Lashkar-e-Taiba in Pakistan) and other terrorist groups.”

Senator Bob Graham, the co-chairman of the official inquiry into 9/11, has said the Washington has turned a blind eye to the Saudis support.

“I believe that the failure to shine a full light on Saudi actions and particularly its involvement in 9/11 has contributed to the Saudi ability to continue to engage in actions that are damaging to the U.S. – and in particular their support for Isis,”he said.
