Yanis Varoufakis at Brookings Institute (Mid-April 2015)

It's self-explanatory. Varoufakis gives Greece's broad-minded solution to the EU situation.

Protester Josephine Witt #Confettigate

This is the young lady, Josephine Witt, who protested the ECB meeting. It's NONVIOLENT protest.  Greece has some responsibility, but the hypocritical "holier-than-thou" attitude of *ECB and *IMF is getting nauseating. Her friend tagging along in the video I believe is "Debbie Theresa" (???)

The above video is from AlphaTV.  I'm sorry I don't know the interviewer's name.

Josephine Witt's Twitter handle, for those who want it:

*ECB= European Central Bank, IMF= International Monetary Fund

Yanis Varoufakis Discusses Negotiations (From Bloomberg)

My favorite line is at the end of the video: "We are prepared to make all sort of compromises, we are not prepared to BE compromised."

SURPRISE: Hillary Clinton Lies AGAIN (related to hiding state e-mails)

Let me say first that I am a Democrat.  But I am never going to vote for a woman who is a PATHOLOGICAL LIAR.  Period. Read the link:

Highlights from the APnews article by Jack Gillum:

 "The State Department says it can find only four emails sent between former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton and her staff concerning drone strikes and certain U.S. surveillance programs, and those notes have little to do with either subject.
She asks for a phone call in one, a phone number in another. She seeks advice on how best to condemn information leaks, and accidentally replies to one work email with questions apparently about decorations.
The messages also reveal Clinton used an iPad to email while secretary of state in addition to her BlackBerry, despite her explanation she set up a private email account and homebrew server while she was the nation's top diplomat so that she could carry a single device."

other highlights from Jack Gallum's article:

"The highly unusual practice of a Cabinet-level official physically running her own email server gave Clinton complete control over access to her message archives. She deleted emails - some 30,000 in total - she described as personal in nature, and has declined the request of Republicans that she turn over her server for an independent review."

The media has been requesting these records since 2010, over 4 years now (which are required by law to be done on government accounts and made available for the public record). As Jack Gallum's article states here:

"The four emails were obtained by The Associated Press under a 2013 Freedom of Information Act request and offer one of the first looks into Clinton's correspondence at the State Department. It is the first time it has provided Clinton-related documents in response to several outstanding FOIA requests, the first of which AP filed in 2010.
The response also came about three weeks after AP filed a federal lawsuit against the State Department, seeking to force the release of materials during Clinton's tenure."

The question is do you want someone who routinely lies leading your country. More interestingly telling the type of lies that only those under age 12 would attempt and think anyone of average intelligence would actually believe.

Lobbyist telling LIES for Monsanto. (Video Showing Humorous Hypocrisy)

I love this video. It shows clearly what a pack of liars many of these corporations are. If I was the interviewer I would have also suggest the old bastard buy a quart for his granddaughter and see if she wanted a tall glass of glyphosate.  The old bastard (Dr. Patrick Moore) with the high forehead and shit for brains is a lobbyist for Monsanto. Glyphosate is an ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup weed killer and there is strong reason to believe it's increasing rates of cancer in Argentina, among other places. The original story is from "Canal+" French television and I should give a "hat tip" to ZeroHedge blog where I found it.  This reminds me of the interviews Mike Wallace used to do on "60 Minutes" in the 1980s, before he got soft.
