Speaker Paul Ryan has conducted a fraudulent session and vote.

The session should be in contention.

Speaker Ryan stated, "The ayes have it." It was impossible to hear a majority choice." It is fraudulent and the proceedings going forward is fraudulent.

In checking with "Robert's Rules of Order," the US Speaker Paul Ryan mishandled the entire session.

Don't believe me? Look it up. I don't feel like being particularly helpful.

In Congress, "the vast majority of actions decided by a voice vote" are ones for which "a strong or even overwhelming majority favors one side," or...
There was no strong or overwhelming majority that could be heard. The only strong and overwhelming words that could be heard was that of the oppositional (The Nay Vote) of the US House Democrats. The verbal "Aye" was never heard. The ONLY verbal vote was that of the opposition. Ryan not only defrauded the vote, he ignored the strong verbal reply. He completely ignored the Democrats in opposition to the vote.

A Speaker cannot pick and choose the verbal majority.
...even unanimous consent. This is because after the chair announces what he believes to be the result of a voice vote, any member can request a division of the assembly (a rising vote, where each sides rise in turn to be counted), and one-fifth of members can demand a recorded vote on any question.
It's estimated that more than 95 percent of the resolutions passed by state legislatures are passed by a unanimous voice vote, many without discussion; this is because resolutions are often on routine, noncontroversial matters, such as commemorating important events or recognizing group.

US Republicans have complete disrespect for life while attempting to create artificial buoyancy in the markets.

...Jo Cox was killed (click here) by a “well of hatred”, Jeremy Corbyn has said in an emotional tribute to the Labour MP in her constituency town of Birstall in West Yorkshire.
The Labour leader, appearing alongside David Cameron, also announced that parliament would be recalled on Monday to pay tribute to Cox “on behalf of everybody who values democracy, free speech and the right of political expression”.
Corbyn said: “She was taken from us in an act of hatred, in a vile act that has killed her. It is an attack on democracy what has happened today. It is the well of hatred that killed her.”
He spoke alongside the prime minister, and the speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, as they laid flowers at the Priestley memorial near where Cox was shot and stabbed on Thursday....

Company steers users towards supporting her causes. (click here)
Google has urged its users in the U.K. to donate to the memorial fund of assassinated British politician Jo Cox.
Cox, a prominent advocate for refugees and supporter of the U.K.’s membership in the EU, was killed Thursday in her West Yorkshire constituency. A man with suspected far-right ties, Thomas Mair, stands accused of her murder, and her widower, Brendan Cox, said her death was politically motivated.
When Mair appeared in court for the first time, he gave his name as “death to traitors, freedom for Britain.”...

Guns are more precious than American lives and Wall Street is more important than Guns.

Speaker Paul Ryan is pushing the lives of Americans aside to allow a vote that benefits their Wall Street cronies.

Americans MEAN NOTHING to the US House Republicans lead by Speaker Paul Ryan!


Americans mean nothing and are better off dead to profit Wall Street!

Why are the US Republicans carrying on about their Wall Street cronies, because, they are attempting to counter the unknown of the "Brexit" vote. They want to create buoyancy to see them through.

CORRUPTION! Speaker Ryan is committing deep seated corruption!

New York (Reuters) - Global markets traded cautiously (click here) on Wednesday, a day before the United Kingdom votes on whether to stay in the EU, with Wall Street stocks easing lower and sterling inching up.
Oil fell back below $50 per barrel and the yen was down against the dollar, with the latest polls showing a slight tilt toward leaving the European Union when Britons go to the polls on Thursday.

House Speaker Ryan is more worried about floating the Yen than ending deaths in the USA due to gun violence.

The "Leave" campaign holds a 1-2 point lead over the "In" camp ahead of Thursday's membership referendum, according to surveys published by polling firms Opinium and TNS, reversing a tilt earlier this week toward "Remain."

Markets have been resilient so far this week, with investors unwilling to make big bets in either direction over the last two days. Opinion polls have led to volatility in asset prices, although Monday's large rally in "risk assets" has held as markets appear to lean toward the view that the United Kingdom will remain in the EU.

"I think the result of the Brexit vote is 50/50, and it will probably be very tight," said Olivier de Berranger, fund manager at French firm La Financiere de L'Echiquier, which manages around $9 billion in assets....

Shortly after dozens of House Democrats (click here) mounted a sit-in on the House floor to protest inaction on gun legislation, the C-SPAN cameras (and the microphones on the floor) went dark.

Conspiracy? Censorship? Republicans leadership trying to blot out the protest?

Nope, simply the sound of a single gavel.

C-SPAN broadcasts the proceedings of the House, but it doesn't control the cameras. All of that is run by the House, under the control of the majority leadership, and by long-standing policy, the broadcast is only live while the House is in session. When Democrats began their protest, Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, who was presiding over the chamber, asked for order. Democrats did not yield the floor, so Poe banged the gavel and declared the House in recess. And the C-SPAN cameras went dark....

Ryan states this is a publicity stunt? Paul Ryan is disgusting! American blood is running in the streets!!!!!!!!!!


Paul Ryan is a joke of a Speaker.

There is no USA Amendment that allows for the slaughter of Americans!

When gunfire broke out in the Orlando nightclub (click here) Pulse Sunday, panicked clubgoers frantically tried to escape what would quickly be classified as the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
But some of the 49 people who lost their lives in the massacre died protecting others, as they shielded loved ones from the fusillade of bullets that Omar Mateen sprayed into the crowded venue.
Brooklyn native Brenda Lee Marquez McCool was out for a night of dancing and fun with her son Isaiah Henderson when the 29-year-old gunman opened fire.
The 49-year-old mother of 11 saw the terror unfold and put herself in harm’s way to save her son....

Donald Trump made a rather sweeping speech. It was impressive.

Hillary Clinton made two speeches over the past two days. They were impressive. She was smiling at times while injecting a light hearted reference or two. Nice.

Her speeches were scrutinized for 'the truth' and passed with flying colors. I would expect Donald Trump's speech to be just as closely scrutinized for 'the truth.'

I have to be somewhere today and will address Donald Trump's speech later.

At a time in the USA when so many people are suffering under oppressive economic conditions and fear their own neighbors and neighborhoods, the truth should be well ensconced into any political campaign. The American people will not settle for rhetoric because it taints their best outcomes. I hope all the candidates realize how very, very important the truth is in the year 2016.

Hillary Clinton (click here) will soon tap into President Obama's coveted email list, according to party officials.
The long-awaited move, which comes as Clintonites take the reins of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), could inject more money into Clinton's campaign coffers as she seeks to expand her fundraising advantage over presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The Obama list has long been seen as a political gold mine for Democrats. Obama's campaign raked in around $500 million through email and online donations in the 2012 cycle alone, according to media reports.
Allies of the likely Democratic nominee say having the list will help their ability to connect to Obama's diverse network of donors, though they were also careful to note that Clinton's own fundraising network is a strong one....

Paul Ryan has no clue. He is just a Reaganwannabee. He lumps everything together and calls it a policy. He hasn't got a clue.

...The plan bases its case for deregulation (click here) on the claim that “the American people now spend $1.89 trillion every year, just to comply with Washington’s rules — approximately $15,000 per household.” That estimate, from the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a free-market group formed in 1984, has been debunked. Its fatal flaw is that it assumes regulations have only costs and no benefits. The Ryan plan recycles that absurdity. It harps on corporate compliance costs while ignoring the social and economic benefits of, say, clean air, clean water, time-and-a-half for overtime, properly underwritten loans and adequate bank capital, to name just a few of the regulatory targets.

Mr. Ryan seems to think his ideas would become reality in a Donald Trump administration. “We feel very confident that our presumptive nominee is comfortable with this agenda,” he said in announcing the plan....

At one time scientists, including NOAA and NASA were estimating the cost of the climate crisis. I don't recall the mention of failed tourism.

An Ohio teen died (click here) after contracting a brain-eating amoeba that thrives in warm freshwater while swimming on a trip in North Carolina.
The 18-year-old woman was on a church trip and is suspected to have contracted Naegleria Fowleri at a popular outdoor recreation center near Charlotte, NBC affiliate WCMH reported.
Commonly found in warm freshwater such as lakes, ponds and hot springs, humans are infected by the deadly organisms when water containing the amoeba travels through the nose and migrates to the brain, destroying the tissue.
High temperatures in the summer months elevate the risk of coming into contact with the brain-eating amoeba....

From the CDC:

...(click here) (commonly referred to as the "brain-eating amoeba" or "brain-eating ameba"), is a free-living microscopic ameba*, (single-celled living organism). It can cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain called primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). The ameba is commonly found in warm freshwater (e.g. lakes, rivers, and hot springs) and soil. Naegleria fowleri usually infects people when contaminated water enters the body through the nose...
Naegleria fowleri

Symptoms (click here) may start about 1 day to 1 week after exposure; initially symptoms may include:

changes in smell and taste,



stiff neck, nausea, and vomiting.

The patient may have confusion, ataxia (wobbliness), and seizures; and rapidly worsen over about 3 to 7 days with death occurring about 7 to 14 days after exposure. Patients, who are usually young, may not seek medical care quickly; most patients are diagnosed by examination of autopsied brain tissue....

Brexit and the TiPP, what results?

It was June 2013 and Ireland (click here) was nearing the end of its six-month presidency of the European Union. At a meeting in Luxembourg, the then minister for trade Richard Bruton hailed an historic agreement. After months of behind-the-scenes negotiations, led mostly by Irish officials, EU member states had agreed to open talks with the US on an ambitious trade agreement.
A last-minute attempt by the French to exclude the heavily-subsidised French film industry from the negotiating mandate threatened to derail the sensitive talks at the 11th hour. Following tense negotiations, the rest of the EU’s member states bowed to French’s demands for “l’exception culturelle”, and the deal was done. EU trade ministers signed on the dotted line.
Three years later the EU-US trade deal is reaching a crucial phase. Experts on both sides of the Atlantic agree that a deal must be reached before the end of US president Barack Obama’s term. If not, plans for creating the world’s largest trade pact will be kicked down the road into the mandate of the next US president, with little hope of agreement in the near term....

It is a change in governance. I don't see the path forward. Changing the boundary lines of an entire continent is not a minor issue.

Even as the day for the referendum (click here) in Britain on whether it wants to remain in or leave the European Union comes closer, opinion polls are divided on the outcome and show that the result could go either way, making the contest a neck-and-neck fight between the two sides.
The Brexit debate, or the debate on the possible exit of Britain from the EU, has two sides: The 'Remain' side which believes that Britain should stay in the EU and the 'Leave' side which supports a Brexit.
Apart from politicians, celebrities have also been saying a lot of things about the Brexit issue.
According to YouGov, a website which displays trends on the basis of information collected from around four million people around the world, the latest trends show that 44 percent of people in Britain want to leave the EU, 42 percent want Britain to remain whereas the rest are undecided on the issue or will not vote in the referendum...

It is a perfect opportunity to end the TiPP process.

...The Risks Of Leaving (click here)
But those countries never had Britain's larger global ambitions, the other side argues.
"As a single country we would have minimal influence on world affairs. Does anyone seriously think the prospect of British sanctions would alarm [Russian President] Vladimir Putin, or have persuaded Iran to curtail its nuclear program?" Martin Fletcher, the former foreign editor of the Times of London, wrote in a Facebook post.
"We would be willfully removing ourselves from a single market of 500 million people without the faintest idea whether, or on what terms, we would be allowed to continue trading with 27 E.U. states who would want to punish us. Why on earth would we take such a monumental risk?" he added.
The "Leave" supporters claim that the E.U. has chipped away at Britain's sovereignty, and cutting ties would make Britain stronger and freer to act as it chooses. Their motto is "Take Control."....

Zika has many victims, including the achievements of athletes.

...Four-time major winner Rory McIlroy (click here) has withdrawn from contention for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics due to concerns over the Zika virus.

"After speaking with those closest to me, I've come to realise that my health and my family's health comes before anything else," the Northern Irishman said on Wednesday in a statement.

"Even though the risk of infection from the Zika virus is considered low, it is a risk nonetheless and a risk I am unwilling to take."

"I trust the Irish people will understand my decision. The unwavering support I receive every time I compete in a golf tournament at home or abroad means the world to me."

McIlroy has recently slipped to fourth in the world rankings after failing to make the cut at the US Open....

I think it is irresponsible to state Zika virus's risk is low.

Australia's favourite overseas holiday destination (click here) has been added to the list of countries plagued by Zika virus, in what could be a huge blow for the Bali honey and babymoon industry.
Travel advice issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade warns Indonesia is experiencing “sporadic transmission” of the virus which has been linked to serious birth defects.
The warning advises all travellers to Indonesia to “protect themselves from mosquito bites”.
“Given the possibility that Zika virus can cause severe malformations in unborn babies, and taking a very cautious approach, pregnant women should discuss any travel plans with the travel doctor and consider postponing travel to Indonesia,” reads the advice....
