    At the Starbucks annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday, 20 March 2013, CEO Howard Schultz sent a clear message to anyone who supports traditional marriage over gay marriage: we don't want your business! Schultz told a shareholder who supports traditional marriage that he sell his Starbucks stock and invest in another company!


    0.33 - "[Starbucks] wants to embrace diversity of all kinds. If, if you feel, respectfully, that you can get a higher return than 38% you got last year, it's a free country. You can sell your shares at Starbucks and buy your shares in another company. Thank You Very Much!"
    Howard Schultz, CEO - Starbucks Coffee Company

    Whistleblower William Binney exposes NSA's
    unconstitutional surveillance on all Americans



    Since 2003, very email, Google search, cell telephone call and social network conversation of every American citizen has been stored in bulk, every transaction labeled to the individual, so our central government can retrieve the file at a later date for those who are targeted as a threat to the federal administration in control at the time! If, by a line-by-line review of any American's electronic file, it is determined a probable cause for a possible future act that can be construed a threat to national security, that American citizen can be detained indefinitely without due process; a total abomination to every American citizen's civil liberty! This was started by George W. Bush's executive order in 2001 and enhanced later by President Barry Soetoro's executive order in December, 2011.

    How the U.S. lost the Internet access race




    Internet policy expert Susan Crawford says deregulation allowed cable companies to dominate the nation's Internet access business, slowing real progress.

    "Kansas City Google network will show people what's it's like what most people just assumed. An internet that is just like turning on a light switch; instant access with nothing slowing it down. Comcast, Verizon and AT&T are making tens of billions of dollars each year as internet carriers deliberately slowing down internet speed and charging extra to eek out faster speeds that are nowhere close to the internet's full potential. Google in Kansas City is offering internet access at full capacity with no restrictions at rates much less than it's competition! Today, there are three internet carriers in Japan who are offering full capacity internet service for $30.00 per month and offer one-day hook-up services because the competition is so keen!

    Right now, [internet access] prices [through Comcast, Verizon and AT&T] are climbing and there is no intervention. The United States was the leader in the first generation of internet innovation. The U.S. is sinking when it comes to the second generation."

    Susan Crawford's full interview:



    "Cable companies operate regional monopolies, while phone companies face steep costs to upgrade their lines for Internet access," says Internet policy expert Susan Crawford, author of "Captive Audience." The result is that cable companies get the vast majority of new Internet access subscriptions and the U.S. is falling behind other nations.

    I thought gore invented the internet, how could he not see this coming. So much for deregulation of the cable industry in the 80's. They gave the phone companies money to upgrade their stuff in the 90's. Funny thing that is when all the cell towers started popping up. Verizion said they were going to bring fiber to 100 million customers. They stopped after 16 million.

    AHHHH the news media. True reporters with sharp minds. Who says all they do is read what is put in front of them?

    Why did Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans die in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012?

    We now know that President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and then-CIA Director David Petraeus were behind a mishandled gun-trafficking program that ended up arming the radical jihadist rebels who stormed the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya on that fateful day.

    The CIA chose which Syrian rebel groups would obtain arms which included machine guns, ammunition, and rocket-propelled grenades. Unfortunately, the CIA has “vetted” shady intermediaries (including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood, Al Queda, the Lybian Islamic Fighting Group and others) to become recipients of 40,000 tons of military equipment and millions of rounds of ammo.

    August 2011, Hillary proposed her version of Iran-Contra weapons smuggling plan to CIA Director David Petraeus. Petraeus assigned U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens to play a crucial role in handling the logistics for the clandestine operation arming the radical jihadist rebels who had the "assignment" to topple the Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad.

    Earlier, in March 2011, military experts cited Christopher Stevens as the man in charge of the overthrow of Libyan strongman Muammar Qadaffi. Following this mission, Stevens relocated to the U.S. Special Mission Compound in Benghazi, where he began amassing an arsenal of at least 20,000 shoulder-launched missiles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and larger surface-to-air missile launchers.

    With help from the CIA, Ambassador Christopher Stevens worked with a man named Abdelhakim Belhadj of the Lybian Islamic Fighting Group to arrange deals with Free Syrian Army rebel leaders to distribute the weapons and ammo.

    On September 5, 2012, Hillary's 40,000 tons of armaments on a Libyan ship called Al Entisar (“The Victory”) docked at the Turkish port of Iskenderun. The military hardware was destined for Syrian rebels 35 miles away from Iskenderun. At the docks, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Free Syrian Army broke into a fight over the arms.

    Instead of rebels using ordnance supplied by the U.S. State Department to attack the Syrian forces of President Bashar Hafez al-Assad, Libyan rebels launched and organized an armed attack against the U.S. Consulate, killing four Americans, on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi using the same weaponry that Hillary sent to Iskenderun!

    Now, Hillary is denying even knowing about the program; although the evidence indicates it was largely her idea. Of course, everything happened under Obama’s watch and the buck stops with him. The story of Obama’s gun-running program in Benghazi is long and multifarious!

    Sen. Rand Paul, "Here’s my concern: Obama’s gun-running program failed to properly vet the rebels. Clinton most likely launched the gun program, expected Ambassador Stevens to oversee it and then her weapons likely landed in the hands of al-Qaida affiliates who killed Stevens and three other Americans. This is a tragic failure of foreign policy and diplomacy under Obama’s watch!"

    Well Glenn Beck and Sen. Rand Paul, the progressive Democrats and progressive Republicans both want legislation passed to make legal what the CIA, the U.S. State Department and the current Executive Branch of the United States government has been doing since August 2011 and most likely before; aiding, arming and abetting a known enemy that our troops are fighting in the Middle East! Come on Glenn and Senator Paul. Call it what it is. It's called treason....................... just sayin'.
