BLIND FAITH

The US is the reason there will be no peace in the middle east between Muslims and Jews. According to Wikipedia there are at present approx 8.5 million Israelis living in the state of Israel, of which approx 74% are of the Jewish faith.

SICKNESS that PERMEATES American Society

America: Meet Your Overlord Rupert Murdoch...

Thom plus logo The main lesson that we've learned so far from the impeachment hearings is that if Richard Nixon had had a billionaire like Rupert Murdoch with a television network like Fox News behind him, he never would've resigned and America would have continued to be presided over by a criminal.
