Bill Clinton Received A “Substantial Payout” From Renaissance Capital, A Russian Investment Bank Whose Executives Were At Risk Of Being Hurt By Potential U.S. Sanctions. “Mr. Clinton also received a substantial payout in 2010 from Renaissance Capital, a Russian investment bank whose executives were at risk of being hurt by possible U.S. sanctions tied to a complex and controversial case of alleged corruption in Russia.” (James Grimaldi And Rebecca Ballhaus, “Speaking Fees Meet Politics For Clintons,”The Wall Street Journal,12/30/15)

There was a thrill ride on Jewish Democratic social media Wednesday night when Bill Clinton was spotted at the Democratic National Convention sporting a button backing his wife – in Hebrew.

Bumbling CIA Agents Get Repeatedly BUSTED in Moscow (Video)

In once incident, a CIA officer tried to barrel his way into the US embassy, but got stopped cold by a no-nonsense Moscow cop on guard duty. Later, US state department representatives absurdly labeled this defense of the US embassy as "harassment" by Russia. And that wasn't the only US spy caught in the act.

Russian TV news has produced a special report on the history of CIA misfires and failures going back to the days of the Cold War. Amidst the constant stream of vitriol about "Russian aggression," it's clear that Washington has never stopped treating Russia as an enemy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are all these arrested CIA assets just idiots ... or did Russia get their names from Hillary's private email server?

Putin Reshuffles the Deck: Personnel swaps anticipate revamped Russian policy towards Ukraine and the West

Critics turned out to be right: Zubarov had never shown himself worthy of the post of ambassador. The Russian Embassy passively watched as power in Ukraine came into the hands of Russophobes prepared by the West and supported by US and EU state structures and NGO's. I’ve had the opportunity to closely interact with the representatives of Russian organizations in these years, and all of them have noted Ambassador Zurabov’s idleness in contrast to the high activity of Western diplomatic missions and public organizations.

But for the sake of fairness, it should be acknowledged that the problem is not only Zubarov the individual. The practice of appointing officials as ambassadors who fail to do their job dates back to Soviet times. For example, Russia’s ambassador to Belarus is the ex-governor of the Altai region, Surikov. Ukraine should have been made an exception since the country is so important to Russia’s interests.

The UN-backed unity government has tightened up security measures in the capital Tripoli amid protests against French military intervention in the war-torn country.

The reinforcements came amid protests in Tripoli and other Libyan cities against French military intervention in the country following last week’s killing of three French troops in a helicopter crash in eastern Libya.

“We are working to secure the capital and its citizens and prevent any attempt to undermine security,” Essam al-Naes, a member of Tripoli security operations room, told Anadolu Agency.

The origins of Man: Out of Africa? nope Australia!!

DNA evidence is shredding scientific dogma on the evolution from Homo Erectus to Homo Sapien.
Archeologists say Homo Sapiens evolved from Lucy 150,000 years ago.
Professor Alan Wilson the man who proposed that theory now believes, because of DNA evidence, Homo Sapiens evolved from Australian Aboriginals 400,000 years ago. They evolved from Homo Erectus who sailed to Flores(hobbits) and on to Australia ~800,000 years ago. The Aboriginals sailed FROM Australia 50,000 years ago and gave the rest of humanity the concepts of religion, culture, art, democracy, music, boats, surgery, dance, astronomy. The Australian Aborigines also were the first people to colonise the Americas. The later Clovis people drove them into Patagonia where they still exist to this day.
Whether they sailed to or from Australia they had to cross 100km of open waters at the Wallace line

French media bans terrorists’ names, photos — but they’re lying about the reason

Yet now the very names of terrorists will be banned. Is it really so as not to incite copycats?

Of course not.

It’s to hide the identity of the terrorists as Muslim. We even saw that in Canada last week, when the Globe and Mail called the Munich terrorist “David,” instead of his given name, “Ali.”

The Wall Street Journal reported on the pressure put on French media, from the government itself:

Voter ID laws in the United States

In the United States, voter ID laws have been passed in thirty-three[1] states.[2] At the federal level, the 2002 Help America Vote Act requires a voter ID for all new voters in federal elections who registered by mail and who did not provide a driver's license number or the last four digits of a Social Security number that was matched against government records.[3]

Voter ID laws first generated controversy in 1999 when Virginia attempted to implement a photo ID requirement.[citation needed] Proponents argue that the laws are a common-sense effort to reduce voter fraud and place little burden on voters. Opponents argue that voter fraud is extremely rare and has been magnified as an issue to create barriers to voter registration and voting that discriminate against minority groups and others who are statistically less likely to possess photo IDs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary's lawyers are already at work trying to overturn voter ID laws in as many states as they can. They just succeeded again in North Carolina.

Hillary's plan is simple; to tell the illegal immigrants that Trump will kick them out of the country but she sill make them legals within 100 days of taking office. In other words, Hillary is giving away YOUR country to illegal immigrants in exchange for their equally illegal votes!

‘Make America great again?’ Ok, Trump: end lie-started illegal Wars of Aggression, arrest Left and Right .01% War Criminals and banksters, enact monetary reform and public banking for $1,000,000 per US household benefits. If not, you’ll join the arrested

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

A “great” America has at least these three required policies:

End lie-started and unlawful Wars of Aggression.

Arrest Left and Right .01% War Criminals and .01% trillions-looting banksters.

Enact monetary reform and public banking for ~$1,000,000 per US household benefits.

Because the documented facts are Emperor’s New Clothes obvious, any US leader, including Trump as president must stop the worst crime a nation’s military Commander-in-Chief can commit, arrest those who engaged in them, arrest banksters for fundamental fraud with tens of trillions in damages, and enact obvious economic reforms.

If Trump as US President will not act for these three policies, he must join those arrested for ongoing US crimes killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions.

In documented detail:

1. End lie-started and unlawful Wars of Aggression

After 100 years World War I battlefields are poisoned and uninhabitable

No war in recent memory can compare to the meat grinder of World War I. Europe still bears the scars of the war, even almost a century later. The gruesome and terrifying type of warfare typical of the Great War had a lasting impact on those who witnessed and experienced it. It also created such carnage on the land where it was fought that some of those areas are still uninhabitable to this day.

No words as Pope Francis visits Auschwitz death camp in silence

The survivors in this article needed better coaching. What they say shows that babies didn't automatically get murdered, pregnant women could go full term and the babies were cared for, sick people spent months in hospital, inmates got care packages, escaping didn't bring an automatic death sentence and the camp had an orchestra to entertain the inmates.

The number of deaths at Auschwitz is now officially down to 1.1 Million and there is argument among the Jews, Roma, Gays, Communists and other groups about what percentage were Jewish. The Jews claim to be 90% of the victims. The other groups combined claim to be 25-35% of the total. The official figure from the Red Cross at the end of the war said 250,000 Jews were murdered so the total is getting closer to that figure every year. No one has a story for the 3 Million removed from the Auschwitz total. The census taken by World Jewish Congress lists 12.5 Million Jews globally before the war and 12 million afterwards.

Russia to arrest Ukrainian assets all over the world

Ukraine will have to pay off $3bln to Russia, in other case Moscow will sue out freezing of Kiev's foreign assets to secure payment of the debt. Freezing the assets is quite a logic development of situation. 'If Russia takes this issue, the Ukrainian authorities will have to spend a lot of time to react. They would better pay off. Ukraine shouldn't hope that the problem will go away on its own. International monetary financial organizations do not defend Kiev. So, we'll face an Italian strike,' Leonid Slutsky, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on the Commonwealth of Independent States, Eurasian Integration and links with compatriots, said. As the MP stated, all the loans were registered correctly, as a state debt of the country, but not of a judicial person. Nobody will be able to write the debt off. According to lawyers, there can be no obstacles...

FSB finds cyber-spying virus in computer networks of 20 state authorities

"The Federal Security Service (FSB) revealed virus software for cyber-spying in computer networks of about 20 organizations located in Russia," the service said. The virus attack was aimed at "information resources of the state authorities, scientific and defense companies, enterprises of the defense industry and other objects of the country's critically important infrastructures. Thus, clearly, it was a targeted virus spread, planned and made professionally. Specialists say, the malicious software, judging by the style of programming, names of files, parameters of their use and by methods, is similar to the software, which was used in much-spoken-about earlier revealed cyber-spying, revealed both in territory of the Russian Federation and around the globe. The newest sets of the said software are made individually for every "victim," on the basis of unique features of attacked machines.

Police stabilize situation in Yerevan after dispersing opposition rally. Radicals demand the resignation of the country’s president and government

Police stabilized the situation outside a police station, which was seized by armed opposition attackers on July 18, after dispersing an opposition rally held in the assailants’ support. Police have detained dozens of opposition activists. There is no information about their fate so far. There no casualty reports. Journalists could work freely as police were dispersing the demonstrators. Police banned rallies and assemblies outside the police unit territory as early as last Tuesday for fear of further escalation of tensions and actions threatening the life and health of people. Police suggested relocating the venue for the rally to a different place to prevent the crowd from bursting into the police unit’s territory and seizing weapons. The opposition forces rallied in a pedestrian zone outside the Yerevan opera theatre for two days. After then, they marched to the seized police unit despite the authorities’ ban.

Russian watchdog to consider import ban lifting after visit to Turkey

Russian veterinary and phytosanitary watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor may lift earlier introduced restrictions on vegetables import from Turkey according to findings of the Russian delegation’s visit on August 1-6, the regulator told TASS on Friday. Russia banned import of bell pepper, pomegranates, aubergines, lettuce, Iceberg lettuce, marrows and pumpkins from Turkey because of phytosanitary considerations in spring 2016. "According to results of such work Rosselkhoznadzor will consider the possibility of lifting earlier introduced restrictions on relevant kinds of products with high phytosanitary risk," official spokesperson of the regulator Yuliya Melano told TASS. The delegation of Rosselkhoznadzor will visit Turkey for examination of the phytosanitary control system in the republic, Melano said earlier today.

Warlord who fought for IS in Syria eliminated in Dagestan

A warlord who fought for the IS in Syria has been eliminated in Russia’s North Caucasian republic of Dagestan, a spokesman for the National Anti-terrorist Committee (NAC) told TASS on Friday. "The man was preliminarily identified as Kamaldin Kazomagomedov, born in 1990, who has been the leader of the so-called Southern paramilitary group since 2015". After a course at the Islamic University Al-Azhar in Egypt Kazimagomedov fought in Syria for the international terrorist organization Islamic State. He returned to Dagestan with fake documents in 2014. "Kazimagomedov is suspected of infringement of the lives of law enforcers and murders of civilians, including fiver hunters in a forest in the Suleiman-Stalsky district on September 20, 2015, and of organizing and committing a terrorist attack at the Dzhemikentsky traffic police station on February 15, 2016".

The Full List Of Hillary's Planned Tax Hikes

Hillary Clinton has made clear she intends to dramatically raise taxes on the American people if elected. She has proposed an income tax increase, a business tax increase, a death tax increase, a capital gains tax increase, a tax on stock trading, an "Exit Tax" and more (see below). Her planned net tax increase on the American people is at least $1 trillion over ten years, based on her campaign’s own figures.

Hillary has endorsed several tax increases on middle income Americans, despite her pledge not to raise taxes on any American making less than $250,000. She has said she would be fine with a payroll tax hike on all Americans, she has endorsed a steep soda tax, endorsed a 25% national gun tax, and most recently, her campaign manager John Podesta said she would be open to a carbon tax. It’s no wonder that when asked by ABC's George Stephanopoulos if her pledge was a "rock-solid" promise, she slipped and said the pledge was merely a “goal.”

Andrew Cuomo’s office to encourage the resettlement of Syrian refugees in New York.

Asia-Pacific Pivot: US to Deploy B-1 Bombers to Guam for First Time in Decade

As the Obama Administration continues to shift the focus of the Pentagon to the Pacific regions, the US plans to station long-range bombers in Guam, roughly 2,000 miles from the South China Sea.

For the first time in nearly 10 years, the Air Force will deploy a squadron of long-range B-1 Lancer bombers to Guam, a US territory in Micronesia. The aircraft will be flown from Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota next month, and the air wing will be accompanied by 300 airmen.

"The B-1 units bring a unique perspective and years of repeated combat and operational experience from the Central Command theater to the Pacific," reads a statement from the US Air Force.

"They will provide a significant rapid global strike capability that enables our readiness and commitment to deterrence, offers assurance to our allies, and strengthens regional security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region."

This is one, fast, lean, flying machine, and can probably get from Guam to China very, very quickly.

Top US General Rushes to Turkey Amid Accusations US Plotted Coup

A top American general, Joint Chief of Staff chairman Joseph Dunford, is rushing to Turkey on an unexpected visit, after President Erdogan’s allies directly accused the US of being behind the failed coup attempt in the country and have begun purging members of the Turkish military with ties to the United States.

Turkish officials announced that General Dunford will visit the country on July 31 after conducting phone negotiations with his Turkish counterpart General Hulusi Akar reports the pro-government Daily Sabah.

Meanwhile, the diplomatic row between the United States and Turkey, in the wake of a failed attempt to overthrow the Erdogan government, worsened on Friday, with Ankara becoming increasingly insistent that the Obama Administration and NATO were at the center of the coup plot.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, the 31st is this Sunday.

Hopefully, Dunford will be able to negotiate the exit of US and NATO personnel at Incerlik, as well as the removal of the nuclear bombs, housed at that base.

I have to wonder if President Obama has dispatched Dunford, hoping he will be made the "sacrificial lamb" as a justification for a pre-eminent invasion of Turkey by NATO to ultimately destabilize Erdogan, topple him, and put in a more "Western-centric" head of government.

America's Aging Baby Boomers, Forced To Work Until Death, Blamed For Collapsing US Productivity

Now America's deteriorating productivity trend is nothing new; however for the first time it has been blamed on the demographic shift of the US workforce and specifically the vast preponderance of baby boomers stuck in the labor force, instead of - say - half the population of the US and Canada using Facebook on a daily basis. As Bloomberg adds, what's surprising is the composition of the slowdown: one-third is driven by slowing workforce expansion and the rest by a drop in productivity gains. The productivity slump isn't reserved to older workers: it takes place across age groups, the researchers find.

The Fed Is Preparing For Negative Rates - Here's The Sign Everyone Missed

I explained why a few months ago in my free weekly column, Thoughts from the Frontline, at Mauldin Economics.

In that regard, something important happened recently. And not many people noticed. I’ll do a quick review to explain.

In Congressional testimony last February, a member of Congress asked Janet Yellen if the Fed had legal authority to use negative interest rates. Her answer was this:

In the spirit of prudent planning we always try to look at what options we would have available to us, either if we needed to tighten policy more rapidly than we expect or the opposite. So we would take a look at [negative rates]. The legal issues I'm not prepared to tell you have been thoroughly examined at this point. I am not aware of anything that would prevent [the Fed from taking interest rates into negative territory]. But I am saying we have not fully investigated the legal issues.

So as of then, Yellen had no firm answer either way.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact that is true, what is the point of saving money inside any US financial institution?!?

The short answer has to be, none whatsoever.

Ireland Jails 3 Top Bankers over 2008 Collapse, the Opposite of What the US Did

“By means that could be termed dishonest, deceitful and corrupt, they manufactured 7.2 billion euros in deposits by obvious sham transactions,” Judge Martin Nolan of Ireland said as he convicted three top bankers on Friday for their role in the 2008 financial crisis. They are among the first in the world to be sent to prison for their involvement in the global meltdown eight years ago. The longest-ever criminal trial in Ireland lasted 74 days and led to convictions for former Irish Life and Permanent Bank Chief Executive Denis Casey; former finance director at the failed Anglo Irish Bank, Willie McAteer; and former head of capital markets at the Anglo Irish Bank, John Bowe. They received sentences ranging between two-and-a-half to three-and-a-half years.

Police State South Korea Clamps Down on Peace Movement. Deployment of US THAAD Missile System in South Korea

On July 26, 2016, the South Korean government blocked the entry of two Korean American peace activists – Juyeon Rhee and Hyun Lee – into its country. The two are representatives of the U.S.-based Solidarity Committee for Democracy and Peace in Korea. They had traveled to South Korea to participate in the annual Jeju Peace March as well as join protests against the recent U.S.-South Korean decision to deploy the controversial Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system in South Korea.

After being detained by immigration officers at Incheon International Airport, the two were deported pursuant to Articles 11 and 12 of the Korea Immigration Law, which prohibits the entry of foreigners who, among other things, are “deemed likely to commit any act detrimental to national interests of the Republic of Korea or public safety.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under President Park, South Korea has morphed into a dictatorship of immeasurable proportions, behaving as though she is Obama's "poodle", and doing everything humanly possible to provoke North Korea, including the acceptance of the THAAD deployment in her country.

Former American Colony Takes Center Stage In South China Sea Dispute

Has Manila singled out Beijing at Washington’s behest?

The territorial disputes in the South China also include Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Vietnam. Vietnamese have historically been the most aggressive in their territorial claims, and the pre-Vietnamese unification state of South Vietnam even had tense military altercations with the Philippines over Southwest Cay in 1975. Even though the Spratly/Nansha Islands are divided among these states, Manila has focused on challenging and demonizing Beijing.

The demonization of China not only comes at the expense of good relations between China and the Philippines. It serves Washington’s agenda to encircle China, which President Benigno Aquino III was all too happy to go along with. From a strategic standpoint, Washington wants China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea to be eroded so that the South China Sea can be an open body of water where the U.S. can position its military forces.

Neocon Schizophrenia

A friend recently observed to me that it is ironic that the neoconservatives, whose bottom line foreign policy issue is the uncritical support of Israel, should be obsessed with constantly confronting and goading Russia even though Tel Aviv and Moscow get along just fine. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has traveled to Russia three times in the past year and he and President Vladimir Putin reportedly understand each other very well.

British Spies Used a URL Shortener to Honeypot Arab Spring Dissidents

A shadowy unit of the British intelligence agency GCHQ tried to influence online activists during the 2009 Iranian presidential election protests and the 2011 democratic uprisings largely known as the Arab Spring, as new evidence gathered from documents leaked by Edward Snowden shows. The GCHQ’s special unit, known as the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group or JTRIG, was first revealed in 2014, when leaked top secret documents showed it tried to infiltrate and manipulate—using “dirty trick” tactics such as honeypots—online communities including those of Anonymous hacktivists, among others.

Why didn't they warn the French people? Security services sent picture of priest-killer with warning that attack was imminent to police four days before church murder but cops did NOT issue image to the public

French intelligence services had been sent a picture of priest killer Abdelmalik Petitjean and were warned an attack was imminent four days before the Normandy church attack, it has been revealed.
In yet another shocking security lapse, the 19-year-old was left to kill Father Jacques Hamel, 85, in the Normandy town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray on Tuesday.
His photo had been widely distributed to police stations after the anonymous tip-off 'from abroad' on July 22. It was received with a colour photograph of Petitjean, and said he 'was preparing to take part in an attack on national territory'.
The warning went on: 'He's already in France, and is preparing to act alone, or with others.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only awful, and inescapable, conclusion one can logically draw, is that someone very high up in the French government wanted an attack like this to happen.

Et Porquoi?! And why?!?

Please remember what Hollande did right after 15 July, following the incident where 84 people were mowed down by that truck in Nice? extend the state of emergency for another 3 months.

Now, with the horrific assassination of Jacques Hamel three days ago, and with the grief so palpable for the French people, heaven only knows what Hollande has in mind to further curtail the liberties in France.

Hillary: ‘I’m Not Here to Take Away Your Guns’ – But She Will

During her acceptance speech, see above, Hillary said she wasn’t going to take away guns in the US, but this is untrue.

She knows just how to do it.

First of all, she will make guns more expensive with new back ground checks.

Second, she will make guns manufacturers liable for selling guns that later are used in crimes.

But that is just the beginning.

Hillary doesn’t actually believe that people in the US should have guns.

In a Fox post HERE entitled, “Four ways Hillary Clinton will work to end gun ownership as president,” John Lott points out that in an appearance on ABC, Hillary would not say whether citizens had a constitutional right to own guns.

Schuette: State workers’ arrogance led to Flint charges

Flint — Arrogance and viewing people in Flint as expendable were the motives of six state employees criminally charged Friday over the city’s water crisis, Attorney General Bill Schuette said.
Their offenses vary but there is an overall theme and repeated pattern,” Schuette said. “Each of these individuals attempted to bury, or cover up, to downplay or hide information that contradicted their own narrative their story. Their story was there was nothing wrong with Flint water and it was perfectly safe to use,” Schuette said.

“These individuals concealed the truth. They were criminally wrong to do so.”

The DHHS employees charged were Nancy Peeler, Robert Scott and Corrine Miller. They all face charges of misconduct in office>>

If there is any shock at the level of corruption within the Democratic National Committee (DNC) as revealed in recently released emails attributed to Wikileaks and the DNC’s automatic response to blame Russia, the fact that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and her staff effectively sabotaged the Bernie Sanders campaign may seem secondary compared with how the Obama Administration has been constructing a false narrative to justify NATO preparations for war with Russia.

Kaine Contradicts Clinton

Kaine Contradicts Clinton Statements on Abortion Funding

Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine seemingly contradicted the assertion, made by Hillary Clinton's campaign and his own spokesperson, that he would work with the nominee on restoring Medicaid funding for abortion.

Clinton has come out strongly in favor of repealing the Hyde Amendment, which bans public funding for abortion except in cases of rape, incest and life endangerment. The current Democratic platform contains the strongest language yet against Hyde.

In an interview with CNN Friday, Kaine said, "I have been for the Hyde Amendment. I haven't changed my position on that." He then repeated it: "I have not changed my position. Have not changed my position on that."

The level of hatred and hostility towards Hillary Clinton is staggering. This is not just "nattering nabobs of negativity": what is occurring now is more like verifiable vitriolic vehemence that is unprecedented in my lifetime.

Fox News’ Eric Bolling Claims Bush Got bin Laden

When and how did President Bush set up the kill shot? He had no interest at all in killing bin Laden in 2001 or at any time thereafter

So…remember when former Bush White House Press Secretary told Sean Hannity, “We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term”?

Well, apparently we never got Osama bin Laden in President Obama’s term. No, that was Bush. At least, that’s what Fox News’ Eric Bolling said Thursday on Fox News’ The Five.

After Lying Low, Deep-Pocketed Clinton Donors Return to the Fore

n a luxury suite high above the convention floor, some of the Democratic Party’s most generous patrons sipped cocktails and caught up with old friends, tuning out Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont on Monday as he bashed Wall Street in an arena named after one of the country’s largest banks.

On Tuesday, when Hillary Clinton became the first female nominee of a major party, a handful of drug companies and health insurers made sure to echo the theme, paying to sponsor an “Inspiring Women” panel featuring Democratic congresswomen.

And in the vaulted marble bar of the Ritz-Carlton downtown, wealthy givers congregated in force for cocktails and glad-handing, as protesters thronged just outside to voice their unhappiness with Wall Street, big money in politics and Mrs. Clinton herself.

Racism in US casts ‘dark shadow’ over rights to free assembly, association – UN expert

The United States is struggling to live up to its ideals in the area of racial, social and economic inequality, which is negatively affecting the exercise of the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association, a United Nations human rights expert said today at the end of his first official fact-finding mission to the country.

“People have good reason to be angry and frustrated at the moment,” said Maina Kiai, the Special Rapporteur on the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association in a statement.
He singled out race as a particularly pernicious issue, emphasizing that while his mandate does not cover racial discrimination, it was impossible carry out his mission “without issues of racism pervading the discussions.”

Bush and Blair will forever elude the punishment they deserve for Iraq war crimes

In the hierarchy of the world's international crimes, the top three are genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. It's hardly in question that the Americans and British committed war crimes and crimes against humanity in Iraq. So what penalties are their leaders paying?

Why, the same penalty all Western leaders pay for their villainy. As Henry Kissinger did for his many crimes against humanity, from Chile to Indonesia to Bangladesh. He's now a mentor on world affairs to Hillary Clinton – the non-reckless presidential candidate. Or Ronald Reagan, who backed sadistic terrorist groups across Central America and worked closely with the apartheid regime in South Africa. He's now totally mythologized, the revered hero of the Republican Party.
