John Kasich's campaign-trail eating habits on Monday.

He continued: "I'd say, 'Children, small, little bites.' This guy takes a pancake and he's shoving it in his mouth. It's disgusting. Do you want this guy for your president?" [LOL!

Heads up! Project Mercury: Foreign 'dirty bomb' responders will start training in Nevada | 24 April 2016 | In a few months, the Center for Radiological/Nuclear Training will enter a new, international dimension as police officers from eastern Europe and elsewhere outside the U.S. descend on a one-of-a-kind training facility in Area 1 at the Nevada National Security Site, 85 miles northwest of Las Vegas...The first wave of foreign students is expected to arrive in September for Project Mercury, a $500,000 pilot program that will bring first responders from Interpol, the world's largest international police organization. While the cost of the security site's 'counterterrorism' effort is $22 million funded annually by the Department of Homeland Security, the $500,000 for the inaugural Project Mercury trial course comes from the Department of Defense, a Pentagon official said Friday. The official, a spokesman for the office of the Secretary of Defense, added that future funding avenues exist in "several programs that build partner capacity to deal with the full range of threats associated with" weapons of mass destruction. One, he said, focuses on teaming with other nations to ensure there will be safe and successful responses to nuclear incidents [aka US false flags].

"But on some of the Republican candidates we would -- before we could support them, we'd have to believe their actions will be quite different than the rhetoric we've heard so far." [Hillary Clinton would explode the growth of corporate power, using identity politics to provide cover - just like Obama. The Koch brothers are cognizant of this fact.]

They say it's the first time the Justice Department has not sought, as its first step, to dismiss a lawsuit over the interrogation program by arguing that its mere existence is too secret to discuss in court...The lawsuit at issue, pending in federal court in Washington state, accuses the two Air Force psychologists who designed the interrogation program of endorsing and teaching torture tactics under the guise of science.
