        Australia now comfortably leads America to the bottom with another rate cut leaving our official rate at 1%. Another cut is expected before years end. Over to you America!

    Jul 03, 2019 03:08 AM

    off topic as some people like to say.

    How Exactly is Israel America’s Greatest Ally and Friend in the Middle East?

    Supporters of Israel and Zionism sure wont like this one, I thought it was kinda good tho.

    Maybe it will show up for Als politics thread on Saturday.

      Jul 03, 2019 03:38 AM

      Waste of time talking about it…….

        Jul 03, 2019 03:41 AM

        gh agreed with you.
        He wasnt the first.

        Its just a really good article.

          Jul 03, 2019 03:44 AM

          Speaking of the Sumerian records,
          there seems to be some u tubes out recently that are comparing those records to the old testament.

          It seems that there are parts that are exactly the same.

            Jul 03, 2019 03:50 AM


            Just in case ur interested, the fruit of knowledge story, serpent etc

            What I find interesting is the story is so close to adam and eve in the garden story.

            Jul 03, 2019 03:06 PM

            Contradiction……..Adam mating with an ape(women)… discussed, is contrary to the scriptures, as to how Eve or she came about…..Gen.2….Eve was from the RIB of Adam….

            Jul 03, 2019 03:07 PM

            21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

            22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

            23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

            Jul 03, 2019 03:43 PM

            No, they are not all exactly the same, but they look like the same stories.

            Isnt it kinda odd that the sumerian records have a knowledge tree fruit story with a serpent etc?

            The more I look at these the more it looks like the old testament came from the sumerian records.

            Makes perfect sense they would not be exact, just the dif christian bibles are dif. thus the dif christian groups beliefs.

            Jul 03, 2019 03:58 PM

            If, Adam and Eve, were first…..then man was separated from God….and deceived by the Devil…..then about any tale could be spun….
            But, I agree, ….it is interesting…that which came first, and which tablets are in error,..political correctness of yesteryear.

            Jul 03, 2019 03:15 PM

            If the sumerian tablets are first wouldnt the old testament be the copy?
            if so the tablets could be the accurate record.

            Jul 03, 2019 03:13 PM

            You are assuming that the tablets are first……
            Some of the old testament….were oral, same as the New Testament…..
            Material passed on from generation to generation by word of mouth. There was a long process of gestation before books of the OT reached their final written form. In ancient Israel pieces of poetry, stories of heroes, legends about founding figures, and songs of celebration circulated amongst groups and tribes.

            Jul 04, 2019 04:12 AM

            The Sumerian records are the oldest written form, but also based on oral traditions, that are far older than the Jewish nomadic people. Yes, the jews copied older flood, creation, and spiritual stories and incorporated them into their own, for anyone that does any studying into early civilization.

            Adam and Eve weren’t the first people either; but rather the first people genetically modified by the gods. Remember Elohim is plural for gods. People forget the passage is “Let us create them in our image.”

            Adam and Eve had 2 sons. Cain killed Abel and was sent out of the God’s “garden.” El one of the god’s is the one that said You shall have no other gods before me, and became the main character Jehova.

            Cain reasoned with God that he couldn’t throw him out there in the world or “they” would kill him. The question is who are they? He went to the Land of Nod and got married to other people that already existed.

            The Adam and Eve creation myth is simply a retelling of a much older story.

            Jul 04, 2019 04:32 PM

            Gods…..meaning ..the father,son, and holy spirit……

            Jul 04, 2019 04:37 PM

            “They.”….meaning….the book of Enoch covers that one…I believe…

            Jul 04, 2019 04:58 PM

            El (God) ohim (plural). There were many gods or The Shining ones that came down from above and created genetically modified life out of the existing humans that had evolved on Earth before their arrival, and they were “placed” in the god’s area (aka the garden) and guarded with cherubs (angel soliders – aka lower level common gods.

            El (Anu’s son – Anu was king of the gods) son)eventually became associated with Saturn, and that is why Jewish people go to church on Saturday. He is the god talking to Moses up on the mountain top, making up the rules, and saying not to worship any other gods before him.

            Jews were henotheistic not monotheistic. They place 1 god above all others. That was the law El was instilling in jews via Moses.

            In the Sumerian, Hittite, Acadian stories (that the jews learned and incorporated inti their later stories and eventually compiled into the Old Testament) there are 12 gods because there are 12 houses of the zodiac, just like there are Twelve Apostles, or twelve helpers for Mithras ( a contemporary religion ar the time of Yeshua ben Joseph aka Jesus )… It’s all a very old series of stories that has been retold in many cultures and changed through whisper down the lane and mistranslations.

            Jul 04, 2019 04:09 PM

            El’s Sumerian name was Enlil and hus brother’s name was Enki. Eventually their race were just called the Elohim (gods) and El was eventually associated with stories about Anu and Enlil and Marduk in different cultures, but the jews latched onto these stories and made him their God Jehova, and conveniently they were God’s chosen people.

            Other God’s that ruled over other humans (like Baal)lost the war, so followers of Enlil felt justified that their God was the king of all.

            Jul 05, 2019 05:06 AM

            Was that a “sumurary”….or what…. ?… 🙂

            Jul 06, 2019 06:14 PM

            Haha! Good one OOTB. Cheers!

          Jul 03, 2019 03:48 AM

          I would agree………good summary… many of those items have appeared on this site since the beginning of 9/11…. many people that introduce great articles, and valid info,….and some ,still have not figured it out….

            Jul 03, 2019 03:55 AM

            Alot of people have a hard time with truth, dont forget, people believe as they are told to believe and they have been told Israel is wonderful since 1948.

            Also,as you pointed out that line, revere me and I bless you…something like that, thats been said for what? almost 2 thousand years, thats alot to overcome.

            People dont like to find out their beliefs are…..not exactly as they’ve thought.

            Jul 03, 2019 03:09 PM

            I agree……”people believe as they are told to believe”
            The education system…in fact has brainwashed the sheeple.

            Jul 03, 2019 03:16 PM

            revere me and I bless you…something like that,
            Are you referring to the line where the christian get stuck on…
            Genesis 12:3 King James Version (KJV)
            3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
            Christians have to be kind of stupid, since this is OLD TESTAMENT…
            and Christ was not even around, and did not come until later…

            Jul 03, 2019 03:44 PM

            Galatians 3:28-29 King James Version (KJV)
            28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

            29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    “Point blank, anybody who believes that Israel is America’s friend is either ignorant, a shill or an outright fool. Unfortunately, this country is filled with these types of people and it is why American foreign policy continues to benefit Israel over the interests of America.”

    Had to post it, last paragraph of the article.

      Jul 03, 2019 03:33 AM

      Sheeple can not figure it out………so sad…..

    Jul 03, 2019 03:54 PM

    Any chance this might go back to being a PM blog?

      Jul 03, 2019 03:50 PM

      Sure, …..sorry, b and I got carried away……Too much for the sheeple to comprehend anyway…. 🙂
      Nothing like listening to fake fed report…..

    Here we will get back on track…….

    There are two kinds of ignoramuses in this world:

    A. The ignoramuses who don’t know what is going on in this world, and who know that they don’t know. This group is relatively harmless and they are not the great wrong-doers of this world, because they know that they don’t know a great many things, and so they keep their mouths shut.

    B. The ignoramuses who don’t know what is going on in this world, but who don’t know that they don’t know. This group is terribly dangerous, as in the old saying: “Fools rush in where wise men fear to tread.”

    I am sorry to have to place President of the US of A, Donald J. Trump, in this second group – for the second time.

    Jul 03, 2019 03:12 PM

    The first time was when Mr. Trump decided to “MAGA” – “Make America Great Again” by instituting Tariffs on certain imports to the US.

    He did not realize – and still doesn’t understand – that the US has enjoyed a free ride of magnificent proportions, because since the end of WW 2, the US Dollar has had the enviable position of Reserve Currency of the World.

    This means that the whole world wants to sell goods of all sorts to the US, in order to get precious Dollars for their Reserves. So the US gets an unlimited amount of goods from all the world, in exchange for Dollars which are essentially nothing but numbers, which cost the Fed and its banking system nothing to produce.

      Jul 03, 2019 03:20 PM

      Point ….counter Point….
      Mr. Trump says that if other countries are devaluing their currencies, in order to sell more to the US, that this is wrong, and that therefore, the US should retaliate by devaluing the Dollar. Trump evidently thinks that by devaluing the Dollar, he will get a result which he regards as good:

      Trump thinks that it would be more expensive for Americans to purchase foreign goods, if the Dollar were worth less; Trump thinks this would reduce the perpetual US Trade Deficit, which he detests.

      However, “devaluing the US Dollar” poses a problem that has no solution: the rest of the world can devalue their currencies against the Dollar, their Reserve Currency. But against what would the US devalue the Dollar? There is nothing against which the US could devalue the Dollar, because it is the final, ultimate currency of the world.

      Conclusion: President of the US of A, Donald J. Trump is an ignoramus who doesn’t know he doesn’t know.
