    To quote the great movie Office Space: ****ing A Meat, ****ing A. In over 13,000 posts on here, because of my respect for you as a genuine person who seeks truth(though who often enough doesnt find/see it, lol) even though youve said some very hurtful things to me, I think this is maybe my my most important post ever.

    Meat, I could picture you and I(if you were healthy again), or myself and another Range legend other than you, in this scene that I mentioned above: (if you have not seen the movie, I think you'd really enjoy it!). That final line and look make me consider changing my screen name to that. I added this after finally finding the video and writing everythinbg below. I share the sentiment the protagonist feels here at the end of the movie. I'm getting hammered, this makes all the pain and ridicule worth it....every d*mned moment of it, I would do it again. Fucking A.




    I had(have) some personal matters I wanted to address and planned to search tomorrow, but I figured I'd start now. I had to go to the 29th result on ***tube, and as someone who researches often and knows what words to use, that should be telling.

    For the love of anything holy, according to your words on record in this thread, this should seal the bleeping deal: (you can skip to the 3:00 mark and hear all you need within maybe a minute).

    Yes, this comes from a BLACK WOMAN, which should make those who use the easy cheating methods of labeling someone a sexist or racist STFU. I seem to remember reading Cynthia was actually JAILED in the occupied land of Palestine(later than this interview) for being part of a humanitarian floatilla which was delivering humanitarian aid that the terrorist state of "israel" denies Palestinians. Yes, a US congresswoman jailed by a foreign government(again, after this interview, because I dont want to discolor your view of her).

    If Sack comes against this interview, I will call him "Sad Sack". Meat, it is time to stand up and be counted as someone who supports at least the very most basic human rights of people, as well as the most common sense freedom of our government to operate outside of oppressive coercion. I hope my passionate opining did not lessen the massive impact this should have on any thinking person....and I hope you will share this with your friends in whatever term you choose for the neighborhood(I dont want to repeat what you said). Meat, do our country(and the world) right? (This brave woman was also a candidate for President, if I recall correctly, so she isn't just some "random" person, or whatever term subversives may use to discredit honest people). ****, I havent felt I've done anything this worthwhile in a very, very long time. Thanks, Mr Meathead. (note this was in 2011.....so heaven knows how long this has been a requirement)

    Meat, part of me says I should stop while I am ahead, but I have a passion that burns for these oppressed people and I want to share this with you too, to let you see what brave women like Cynthia and Omar have expressed, to their own personal detriment. Even the most hard-hearted, vile scum on here can not openly oppose this.

    The powerful "anti-semenic" tripe can not be employed here, because it comes from J**s For Peace! So I want to take a moment to say **** you to all the subversive shills on here, and let them feel the metaphorical **** in their *** that George Carlin used as in illustration. It's short enough to get the message across quickly. Granted it is fairly pro ***ish in it's overall view of history, yet still seeks basic human decency like the rest of us. (Ive got more to share, showing undercover how people who have these wonderful aspirations are spied upon, and suffer character assasination in the US...and that is not hyperbole....but I feel this is enough to let sink in for now. I'd rather end on an uplifting note for now, rather than sharing more of the horror that goes on within our own borders. If you see that video, you will understand why I use *** rather than typing the word. It's chilling).

    I'm posting this especially for the African-American friends of human dignity on here, but also for anyone else who cares to know how crooked Washington is and what we can do to help. Meathead, Ive taken a bit of your time, but think you'd enjoy this too.

    Check the comments, nothing but praise, which is rare on youtube. This woman has more of a sack than most I've seen on here or in real life, what a wonderful human being. In her first video I posted avove, even a Chump supporter said he was done with him. You "shall know them by their fruits".

    1:50 video, short enough for even the most vile/hatefu/selfish(and frankly, dishonest) "tldr"-type jerks on here. I challenge anyone to be able to remain willfully ignorant after this. I said I would expose your dark puppet masters, and I have kept my word(though I am far from done, Lord willing), even if you choose to remain silent. Whatever amount of discomfort we feel can not even be compared to what our dollars do to these people, and I will not sit idly by.

    I may be the loudest buster of balls of idiot white/American cucks on here who leave their asscheeks spread in the air, amusing themselves to death while your culture is annihilated(like the Native American, you have been conditioned to applaud your own demise), but I also encourage the support of the rights of people of all races/nations against those who oppress them. The Golden Rule. Do you want your tax dollars supporting this?

    Is there a single person on here who will support this?

    Man...I just realized suddenly I couldnt give 2 shits about what anyone thinks Josh Allen will do. How we feel wont change a thing. How we feel about these matters, however, may help lead to such.


    Meat, as a Range Insider(tm) I seem to recall one time, maybe 5 or 6 years ago, you suggested we shut up and just declare Pink Floyd the best of all time.

    Many songs are misused, but both Waters and Gilmour have supported the plight of the Palestinians, even to the point of getting Neil Young to cancel his concert in Israel.

    Is there not a more perfect song for this cause? Again, I challenge anyone to watch this(not while busy at work) and still have the coldness inside:












    On the turning away
    From the pale and downtrodden
    And the words they say
    Which we won't understand
    "Don't accept that what's happening
    Is just a case of others' suffering
    Or you'll find that you're joining in
    The turning away"

    It's a sin that somehow
    Light is changing to shadow
    And casting its shroud
    Over all we have known
    Unaware how the ranks have grown
    Driven on by a heart of stone
    We could find that we're all alone
    In the dream of the proud

    On the wings of the night
    As the daytime is stirring
    Where the speechless unite
    In a silent accord
    Using words you will find are strange
    Mesmerized as they light the flame
    Feel the new wind of change
    On the wings of the night

    No more turning away
    From the weak and the weary
    No more turning away
    From the coldness inside

    Just a world that we all must share
    It's not enough just to stand and stare
    Is it only a dream that there'll be
    No more turning away?

    Why do you RULE OF LAW, "SMALL GOVERNMENT"(and even anti-Chumpers) cower in the shadows when it comes to these human rights abuses and international crimes, funded by YOUR tax dollars? Apparently the unwitting John Cusack really did prove the meme right. You guys rail on anyone and everyone for such minutia, things that dont even have an effect on anyone, much of it not even real.


    Bibi Netanyahu Names New Illegal Israeli Settlement Trump Heights

    Published by Stephen Lendman at June 17, 2019 Categories Tags
    Netanyahu Names New Illegal Israeli Settlement Trump Heights

    by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

    There are about 150 illegal Israeli settlements (including large neighborhoods) and around 110 outposts on stolen Palestinian land, occupied by about 650,000 Israeli settlers — no non-Jews allowed, especially no Arabs, persecuted by apartheid rule.

    On Sunday from illegally occupied Syrian Golan, Netanyahu announced a new settlement discussed below.

    Under international law, Israeli settlements, outposts, and other development on Palestinian land are flagrantly illegal.

    Fourth Geneva’s Article 49 states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.”

    The Hague Convention forbids occupying powers from altering occupied territory, except for military necessity, clearly not the case in the Occupied Territories.

    The UN, its Security Council, the International Court of Justice, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and numerous human rights groups call Israeli settlements flagrantly illegal.

    Longstanding US policy considered them “illegitimate,” not illegal – until Trump abandoned all pretense about Israeli/Palestinian evenhandedness, one-sidedly supporting the Jewish state, spurning and showing utter contempt for fundamental Palestinian rights.

    A formerly classified September 1967 document revealed that Israeli PM Levi Eshkol’s legal adviser Theodor Meron said “civilian settlements in the administered territories contravenes the explicit provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention.”

    Jimmy Carter’s State Department legal advisor Herbert Hansell called settlements “inconsistent with international law.” Ronald Reagan’s State Department called them “unnecessarily provocative,” urging a moratorium, saying they hinder peace talks.

    In July 1980, the Knesset’s Jerusalem Law illegally annexed the UN-designated international city as Israel’s unified capital.

    Months before this action, the Security Council ruled that all Israeli actions on occupied Palestinian territory, including Jerusalem, “have no legal validity.”

    In 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled that “Israeli settlements in the Occupied Territory, including East Jerusalem, “are illegal and an obstacle to peace and to economic and social development (and) have been established in breach of international law.”

    In May 2018, the Trump regime illegally moved the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem – a world body-designated international city, recognized by nearly all UN member states.

    In March, DJT signed an executive order, illegally recognizing Syrian Golan as Israeli territory, flagrantly violating international law he’s spurned time and again unaccountably.

    The US and Israel alone recognize what the rest of the world community rejects. Golan is sovereign Syrian territory. In response to Trump’s action, Russia said “(c)hanging the status of the Golan Heights bypassing the Security Council is in direct violation of UN decisions.”

    Damascus called the action “irresponsible…confirm(ing) (his regime’s) commitment to Israel and support for its aggressive behavior…”

    Trump’s envoy to the Jewish state David Friedman supports illegal Israeli annexation of stolen Palestinian West Bank land, falsely claiming settlements and other territory it controls are part of its land.

    Statements by envoys represent the policies of ruling authorities they represent. The Trump regime consistently shows contempt for Palestinian rights and the rule of law.

    At a special Sunday cabinet meeting in illegally occupied Syrian Golan, Netanyahu announced the establishment of Trump Heights, saying:

    “We are proud to set up a settlement that will pay tribute to our great friend. We will continue developing the Golan Heights” — illegally he failed to explain, adding:

    “The Golan will always be an inseparable part of Israel.” In response on Sunday, Trump tweeted: “Thank you PM @Netanyahu and the State of Israel for this great honor” — what law-abiding leaders and other officials would want no part of.

    Haaretz mocked Netanyahu’s announcement, headlining “Welcome to Trump Heights, the Israeli Town That Doesn’t Exist,” quoting MK Zvi Hauser, saying:

    “Anyone who reads the fine print of the ‘historic’ decision understands that this is a conceptual decision. There is no funding. There is no planning. There is no location, and there is really no committed decision.”

    “That’s what the ‘Israbluff of establishing of a new community in the Golan Heights looks like” — saying nothing about the illegality of the move.

    Development of other settlements and outposts continues on stolen Palestinian land, dispossessing its lawful owners, the world community taking no concrete actions to stop the outrage.

When critics slammed the tweet as "disgusting" and "anti-Semitic", Cusack wrote that he was speaking out against Israel's state violence against Palestinians, rather than criticizing those of the Jewish faith. https://ifamericaknew.org/

    (he should realize it isn't faith, but the DNA of their RACE that is required to become an Israeli citizen, and a j** in Israel is BANNED from marrying a non-j**...the most racist and hypocritical state in the world, on top of all of the rest of their crimes against humanity). Note, that US politicians can't have dual citizenship to any other country... other than Israel(89 members of congress do[a large % for a group that comprises only 2% of the population], as do many in the adminstration, the rest are bought/muscled by AIPAC..other than a very brave few such as Ron Paul before he retired. They're now required to sign something that pledges allegiance, which I can likely find a video for later). Starting to see the big picture yet? https://prepareforchange.net/2018/06...p-with-israel/







    That took courage.




    John joins a rather lengthy list of those demonized, some of them j**s themselves, for criticizing the state of Israel and it's gross human rights abuses/apartheid. Later after receiving more abuse, and ultimately BREAKING, he claimed a bot did it(lol, sounds like the Range!).
    Wouldn't be surprised if it's stipulated in the contracts of Hollywood, the music industry and radio talking heads that in order to make TONS of money, then they have to stand with Israel.

    It wouldn't surprise me. For anyone wanting to question you, this LA Times article has one of the most epic openings and endings I've ever seen!! The author is j**ish, and is pissed off because: (lol, he is bragging about the same facts his comrades try to hide, and goys like Cusack get slammed for merely insinuating). I wonder if folks on here now can understand why their own views on this situation are what they are with all the enterainment and so called "news" they ingest?








    Who runs Hollywood? C'mon
    JOEL STEIN
    I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe "the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews," down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood.

    How deeply Jewish is Hollywood? When the studio chiefs took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago to demand that the Screen Actors Guild settle its contract, the open letter was signed by: News Corp. President Peter Chernin (Jewish), Paramount Pictures Chairman Brad Grey (Jewish), Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Robert Iger (Jewish), Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton (surprise, Dutch Jew), Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer (Jewish), CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves (so Jewish his great uncle was the first prime minister of Israel), MGM Chairman Harry Sloan (Jewish) and NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker (mega-Jewish). If either of the Weinstein brothers had signed, this group would have not only the power to shut down all film production but to form a minyan with enough Fiji water on hand to fill a mikvah.

    The person they were yelling at in that ad was SAG President Alan Rosenberg (take a guess). The scathing rebuttal to the ad was written by entertainment super-agent Ari Emanuel (Jew with Israeli parents) on the Huffington Post, which is owned by Arianna Huffington (not Jewish and has never worked in Hollywood.)

    The Jews are so dominant, I had to scour the trades to come up with six Gentiles in high positions at entertainment companies. When I called them to talk about their incredible advancement, five of them refused to talk to me, apparently out of fear of insulting Jews. The sixth, AMC President Charlie Collier, turned out to be Jewish.

    As a proud Jew, I want America to know about our accomplishment. Yes, we control Hollywood. Without us, you'd be flipping between "The 700 Club" and "Davey and Goliath" on TV all day.

    So I've taken it upon myself to re-convince America that Jews run Hollywood by launching a public relations campaign, because that's what we do best. I'm weighing several slogans, including: "Hollywood: More Jewish than ever!"; "Hollywood: From the people who brought you the Bible"; and "Hollywood: If you enjoy TV and movies, then you probably like Jews after all."

    I called ADL Chairman Abe Foxman, who was in Santiago, Chile, where, he told me to my dismay, he was not hunting Nazis. He dismissed my whole proposition, saying that the number of people who think Jews run Hollywood is still too high. The ADL poll, he pointed out, showed that 59% of Americans think Hollywood execs "do not share the religious and moral values of most Americans," and 43% think the entertainment industry is waging an organized campaign to "weaken the influence of religious values in this country."

    That's a sinister canard, Foxman said. "It means they think Jews meet at Canter's Deli on Friday mornings to decide what's best for the Jews." Foxman's argument made me rethink: I have to eat at Canter's more often.

    "That's a very dangerous phrase, 'Jews control Hollywood.' What is true is that there are a lot of Jews in Hollywood," he said. Instead of "control," Foxman would prefer people say that many executives in the industry "happen to be Jewish," as in "all eight major film studios are run by men who happen to be Jewish."

    But Foxman said he is proud of the accomplishments of American Jews. "I think Jews are disproportionately represented in the creative industry. They're disproportionate as lawyers and probably medicine here as well," he said. He argues that this does not mean that Jews make pro-Jewish movies any more than they do pro-Jewish surgery. Though other countries, I've noticed, aren't so big on circumcision.

    I appreciate Foxman's concerns. And maybe my life spent in a New Jersey-New York/Bay Area-L.A. pro-Semitic cocoon has left me naive. But I don't care if Americans think we're running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.

    I called ADL Chairman Abe Foxman, who was in Santiago, Chile, where, he told me to my dismay, he was not hunting Nazis. He dismissed my whole proposition, saying that the number of people who think Jews run Hollywood is still too high. The ADL poll, he pointed out, showed that 59% of Americans think Hollywood execs "do not share the religious and moral values of most Americans," and 43% think the entertainment industry is waging an organized campaign to "weaken the influence of religious values in this country."

    That's a sinister canard, Foxman said. "It means they think Jews meet at Canter's Deli on Friday mornings to decide what's best for the Jews." Foxman's argument made me rethink: I have to eat at Canter's more often.

    "That's a very dangerous phrase, 'Jews control Hollywood.' What is true is that there are a lot of Jews in Hollywood," he said. Instead of "control," Foxman would prefer people say that many executives in the industry "happen to be Jewish," as in "all eight major film studios are run by men who happen to be Jewish."

    But Foxman said he is proud of the accomplishments of American Jews. "I think Jews are disproportionately represented in the creative industry. They're disproportionate as lawyers and probably medicine here as well," he said. He argues that this does not mean that Jews make pro-Jewish movies any more than they do pro-Jewish surgery. Though other countries, I've noticed, aren't so big on circumcision.

    I appreciate Foxman's concerns. And maybe my life spent in a New Jersey-New York/Bay Area-L.A. pro-Semitic cocoon has left me naive. But I don't care if Americans think we're running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.

    Here's a good question, how many popular actors, musicians, talk radio hosts do you think just completely disappeared, because they found out that the industry that they were working in was not at all what they imagined? It wasn't all about talent, you needed to do some things that were perhaps distasteful to that particular person? I don't know the answer to this question, but I'm sure it has an answer somewhere.

    Here's another one, how many of these famous people were singled out for criticizing the industry or something outside the industry that they are also rumored to run, and retribution had to be paid?
