Clinton Death List’: 33 Most Intriguing Cases Of ‘Coincidental, Accidental’ And ‘Suicidal’ Deaths

The Clinton’s dead pool list is growing. Three people who had direct connections to Bill and Hillary Clinton died of unusual circumstances over the last few weeks adding to an already long, suspicious list of accidents and supposed suicides. Since the Democratic National Committee emails were released by Wikileaks a few weeks ago, three people associated with the DNC have all been found dead under questionable circumstances. According to WND, when DNC staffer Seth Rich was gunned down near his affluent neighborhood in Washington, D.C., on July 10, theories exploded in the news media about Rich’s possible involvement in the WikiLeaks dump of nearly 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails – some of the messages suggesting that the Democratic Party favored nominee Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders from the start.

20% of scientific papers on genes contain gene name conversion errors caused by Excel

According to three scientists, Mark Ziemann, Yotam Eren, and Assam El-Osta, Microsoft Excel has trouble converting gene names. In the scientific article, titled “Gene name errors are widespread in the scientific literature,” article’s abstract section, the scientists explain:

“The spreadsheet software Microsoft Excel, when used with default settings, is known to convert gene names to dates and floating-point numbers. A programmatic scan of leading genomics journals reveals that approximately one-fifth of papers with supplementary Excel gene lists contain erroneous gene name conversions.”

NSA-linked Cisco exploit poses bigger threat than previously thought

An exploit dubbed ExtraBacon contains code that prevents it from working on newer versions of Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA), a line of firewalls that's widely used by corporations, government agencies, and other large organizations. When the exploit encounters 8.4(5) or newer versions of ASA, it returns an error message that prevents it from working. Now researchers say that with a nominal amount of work, they were able to modify ExtraBacon to make it work on a much newer version. The finding means that ExtraBacon poses a bigger threat than many security experts may have believed.

Clintonites Prepare For War On Syria

The Syria Propaganda Campaign

Following the California primary, the NY Times reported on State Department diplomats issuing an internal memo “urging the United States to carry out military strikes against the government of President Bashar al Assad.”

Seattle is looking to kill two birds with one stone. The city’s rate of homelessness has increased by 19 percent since 2015, and in 2014, the city had the highest rate of deaths from heroin overdoses in 20 years.

Media Worried Too Many Americans Will Question Legitimacy Of 2016 Election, Blame Trump

2016 is the year many, many Americans began to question whether or not our elections, and to a lesser extent, our democracy (insert “it’s a constitutional republic, big difference!” here) are rigged. As I’ve argued many times in the past year, there is plenty of evidence suggesting these skeptical Americans are, indeed, onto something with their suspicions.

But the corporate media has come out in defense of America’s “democracy” - and political elites are defending the system, too. In the wake of Trump’s recent rhetoric regarding the “rigged” system, the ruling class of the United States is peddling the fiction that somehow Trump’s irresponsible sensationalism is solely to blame for the newfound feelings of illegitimacy plaguing our elections.

Take, for example, Monday’s POLITICO piece entitled “What if Trump won’t accept defeat?”:

Brewing Collapse of the Western Monetary System? German Government Warns of an Upcoming Catastrophe, Tags Russia as an “Enemy Nation”

On a related note, against many Members of Parliament and several ministers, the German Bundeswehr (army) has declared Russia as an enemy nation. This is akin to a declaration of war. The head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Russian State Duma, Alexei Puschkow, has posted the Twitter message:

‘The decision of the German government declaring Russia to be an enemy shows Merkel’s subservience to the Obama administration.’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to say that things are looking up, geopolitically, and that peace may break out; unfortunately, I cannot say that with a straight face right now.

The best you can do is not panic, but prepare, as we have stated all along.

Make sure that you have storable food; potable water; and any medications which you (or your pets) may take safely stored as well.

Make sure your bug-out kit is up to date, and please do know your kids' school's policy for releasing them before the end of their school day, and under what circumstances they can go back to their parents before then.

Have a pre-approved gathering place, if people are separated, to regroup.

The more you take care of this now, the easier it will be to withstand a real crisis if the excrement does hit the ventilation shaft soon.

I am no Nostradamus; but looking at the gathering collection of tensions, geopolitically, I cannot bet against a major military confrontation, involving US troops, possibly well before the end of the year.

I hope to heck I am wrong, but that's what it feels like to me.

If Kids Aren’t Gender Confused Yet, They Will Be When School Is Done With Them

An elementary school in Albuquerque, NM has a new policy to go along with the new school year. Just in case kids are gender confused, teachers are no longer allowed to address children as “boys and girls.”

After the Bathroom Hullabaloo of 2016, you would have thought that things might settle down and we could go about our business, peeing wherever we want to pee and that would be that.

But no.

No, now children as young as kindergarten age are being taught in classrooms in which teachers have been ordered to “eliminate gender.”

Of course, I don’t want to see anyone be cruel to children who are confused about their identity. But I also think this is a very alarming educational trend that is going to cause much more harm than good.

By the way, Albuquerque isn’t alone in teaching children about “gender fluidity.” Schools across the country are taking “you can be anything you want” to a whole new level.

War on Yemen, Inhaling Poisonous Gas: Saudi Arabia Launches Chemical Attack on Sana’a, Killing Civilians

A Yemeni military source disclosed that Saudi Arabia has attacked the civilians in Sana’a with chemical weapons, killing and injuring a number of people in the capital city’s Ninth district.

“A number of Yemeni people have been killed as a result of inhaling poisonous gases in the chemical attack,” Military Expert Major General Abdel Sattar al-Sa’deh told FNA on Monday.

He reiterated that Sana’a's Ninth district has been under artillery attacks of the pro-Saudi forces, yet it seems that the Saudi forces have been recently supplied with chemical weapons to exert more pressure on the district.

Al-Sa’deh said that the Yemeni citizens felt weakness, unconsciousness and tiredness after the Saudi forces attacked them with artillery shells containing white-colored substances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


"...yet it seems that the Saudi forces have been recently supplied with chemical weapons to exert more pressure on the district".

Supplied by whom?!? The good old government of the USA, or the UK, perhaps?!?

It is apparent that this world, at this moment, is run by the war criminals; of the war criminals, and for the war criminals.

That the US government is complicit in these war crimes is enough to make me want to weep.

US War Crimes or ‘Normalized Deviance’

The normalization of deviance from the rules and standards that formally govern U.S. foreign policy has been quite radical. And yet, as in other cases, this has gradually been accepted as a normal state of affairs, first within the corridors of power, then by the corporate media and eventually by much of the public at large.

Once deviance has been culturally normalized, as Vaughan found in the shuttle program at NASA, there is no longer any effective check on actions that deviate radically from formal or established standards – in the case of U.S. foreign policy, that would refer to the rules and customs of international law, the checks and balances of our constitutional political system and the experience and evolving practice of generations of statesmen and diplomats.

Astronomical amounts of radiation” found in downtown Tokyo… Directly outside gov’t building — ‘Horrific’ readings where kids playing in Fukushima, ‘extreme’ levels found where food is grown for elementary school lunches

[J]ust before the 5th anniversary of the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi, a group of young girls in the city of Minami-Soma rode their bikes to school past a shocked and saddened pedestrian. That upset observer was Arnie Gundersen, nuclear reactor expert… “What surprised me at this visit to Japan… is that the decontaminated area is contaminated again,” Mr. Gundersen said while explaining why it was such as sad shock to witness the girls on their bicycles. “This was not what I had expected. I had thought that we would not find such high doses of radiation in the decontaminated area. But, sadly, our results prove otherwise.”… Gundersen collected samples of dust [though] the official data cannot be released before the publication of formal scientific papers, it is evident that high doses of radiation, usually found in nuclear waste, was detected from these samples. “This means that highly radioactive dust is flying around the city.

China, Russia to hold South China Sea ‘drills’ next month

Amid rising tensions with the Obama administration and its neighbors across East Asia, China will hold a week of naval drills with Russia in the South China Sea next month, the two countries said Monday.

Vladimir Matveyev, spokesman for the Russian navy’s Pacific fleet, said the previously announced joint drills will be held over eight days starting Sept. 12 and will focus on protecting merchant ships in the heavily-trafficked waterway. The two navies will also engage in mock island landings, according to a report Monday in the TASS news agency.

The exercises come as Beijing had become increasingly assertive in its broad claims to sovereignty to the waters off its coastline, parts of which are also claimed by Japan, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia and other countries in the region.

Chinese state media reacted angrily last month when an international arbitration board in The Hague sided with Manila in a bilateral dispute over key strategic island outposts in the sea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, we are looking at a ratcheting up of tensions with these "drills"

Aug 23 11:25

Tensions mount between Russia and Ukraine ahead of military drills

By any standard, the drumbeat of growing tensions between Russia and Ukraine this month has been especially ominous.

It began as Russian President Vladimir Putin accused Kiev of embracing the “tactics of terror,” after Russia claimed to have caught Ukrainian saboteurs in Crimea. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko put troops on alert and warned that the country might have to move toward martial law and mobilization if the conflict in the east or Crimea escalated.

Russia is set to hold large military drills on the peninsula next month. And in eastern Ukraine, the use of heavy weapons between Russian-backed separatists and the army has increased as opposing trenches have crept so close that opposing fighters can shout across the breach.

Analysts say tensions are at their highest since the signing of what are known as the Minsk agreements in February 2015.

And in Kiev, it is not unusual to hear again that Russia is preparing to invade Ukraine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My best bet, right now, is that Russia will not invade Ukraine: it is simply being very strongly intense with these exercises to telegraph to Ukraine not to mess with either Crimea or any other part of Russia.

Should Russia retaliate against the attempted Ukrainian sabotage in Crimea, that retaliation will most likely be asymmetric, and economic.

US to Send More Troops to South Afghanistan to Resist Taliban Gains

With gains in the Helmand Province mounting for Taliban forces, and the Afghan military struggling to defend both that and the other provinces around the country which the Taliban are advancing into, the Pentagon has announced an additional deployment of US ground troops into the Helmand capital of Lashkar Gah.

Officials are trying to present the deployment as primarily a “training” operation, in keeping with a policy of claiming that everything they do is “non-combat,” but the reality is that there are very limited Afghan forces in Lashkar Gah, and a deployment of around 100 troops by the US is almost certain to mean direct combat roles.

Brig. Gen. Charles Cleveland insisted US forces were committed to not allow the loss of Lashkar Gah, and clearly they can’t do this with a little idle encouragement to Afghan forces who are increasingly out-numbered and have been beaten by the Taliban time and again in the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind Brig. Gen. Charles Cleveland that one of the classic definitions of insanity is doing the same thing in precisely the same way, over and over, yet expecting a different outcome.

How long have the US and NATO been in Afghanistan?!?

15 years.

How much has been spent by the US government on this war?!?

There are no real figures on this, but most probably into the billions, if not trillions of dollars.

Is there any military metric by which the US and NATO can claim "victory" in this war?!?

NONE!!

So, let me get this straight; the US military and NATO have been in Afghanistan for 15 years, spending billions, if not trillions, of dollars on a war that the US and NATO have not been able to win?

What's wrong with this picture?!?

EVERYTHING.

And I have a modest proposal to float by President Obama; please send our troops,and NATO troops home as quickly as is safe for them, and I would remind our President that Afghanistan isn't called "the graveyard of empires" for no reason.

Let's cut our losses now, and negotiate with whatever government is left standing in Kabul for the pipeline routes, the minerals (and the heroin, which is flowing like water, ever since the US/NATO occupation happened).

Of course, this solution is logical, but I think, at this point, the US government needs to start embracing logic, rather than the "magical thinking" which has governed the US foreign policy in Afghanistan for all these 15 years.

US Ready To Target Russian, Syrian Jets In Syria: Pentagon

The Pentagon has warned Syria and Russia that the US is ready to shoot down their planes, which Washington claims threaten American advisers in northern Syria.

The warning came after US fighter jets had tried to engage Syrian Arab Air Force aircraft in Syria last week, but the showdown was avoided as government planes left before the Americans arrived.

Aug 23 10:36

Pentagon: ‘Exclusion Zone’ in North Syria Not Technically a No Fly Zone

After warning Syria not to fly planes in the Hasakeh Province or risk getting them shot down by US planes in the area, the Pentagon is struggling to convince reporters that there is some sort of distinction between this zone you can’t fly in and a “no-fly zone.”

Fighting erupted between Syrian Army and Kurdish YPG forces in the city of Hasakeh late last week, with the YPG attempting to take the rest of the city, which had long been jointly held and jointly defended, As the fighting escalated, Syrian warplanes bombed Kurdish forces.

The US has its trooped embedded with the Kurdish forces, and argued that the Syrian airstrikes were endangering them. Over the weekend they repeatedly scrambled fighter jets to chase off the Syrian planes, warning they were going to ‘defend themselves.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Pentagon Spokesperson Cook, please: just how stupid do you think Americans are, to swallow this codswallop?!?

What the US government and military have done is to set up a de facto "no fly zone" here, no matter what you call it.

In fact, let's call it "Sherlock", shall we?!? that's a little more charming and elegant than calling it "an exclusion zone"!!

N. Korea lays land mines near border to prevent defection by soldiers: sources

North Korea was seen laying anti-personnel mines along its side of the inter-Korean border, presumably to block potential defection by its own soldiers, a government source said Tuesday.

"Several North Korea military-laid land mines were seen on the northern side of a bridge in Panmunjom last week," the source said. The small bridge known as the Bridge of No Return is located within the truce village and spans the military demarcation line between the two Koreas.

It was the first time North Korea was seen planting mines in Panmunjom since the inter-Korean armistice agreement in July 1953, although two South Korean soldiers were maimed last August in mine blasts blamed on the North in the eastern part of the inter-Korean border.

The source said the North Korean action "appears to be designed to prevent its front-line servicemen from defecting."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these reports are true (because they are not sourced), they may indicate further North Korean preparations for war, coupled with preparations to keep their front-line soldiers from defecting.

FLINT 2.0? INDIANA RESIDENTS SUDDENLY EVICTED AFTER DECADES OF LEAD, ARSENIC CONTAMINATION

After decades of nearby industrial pollution, residents of the West Calumet Housing Complex in East Chicago, Indiana, were abruptly warned that they must vacate their homes for demolition given hazardous levels of lead and arsenic in the soil.

More than 1,000 residents of the 346-unit public housing complex were told last month by the city of East Chicago that they must find new housing, as the city planned to demolish all dwellings in the complex. Just days before, the city said residents would only have to temporarily relocate based on a US Environmental Protection Agency finding that soil around the complex contained toxic levels of lead and arsenic since at least 2014. Plans to remove the soil dated back to 2012.

"Somebody dropped the ball somewhere," state Sen. Lonnie Randolph of East Chicago told the Associated Press of shock among residents as warnings of toxicity rapidly escalated. "Maybe it was intentional, or maybe by mistake. Maybe it was negligence."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All city and county officials who allowed this toxic build-up in this area to happen, and to linger, should be tried, convicted, and serve hard time, as a lesson for any city or country official in this country even thinking about ignoring water quality.

Everyone who lived in the affected area should be tested for lead poisoning, and immediately. Through various treatments, you can get rid of lead in the system, but the damage done to young children is irreversible.

GAZA MAN INVENTS SOLAR POWERED WATER PURIFICATION TANK FOR WAR-TORN TOWN

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has left almost 90 percent of the water supply unfit for people to drink. Fayez al-Hindi has devised a homemade water desalinization setup that is helping to solve the water crisis, though, as some Gaza residents face running out of water in mere months. It runs on solar power and a little ingenuity.

Three years of jets bombing the Gaza strip have left the territory’s water infrastructure extremely unstable. Both reservoirs above ground and below have been damaged, so even when it rains, the water is often contaminated, and made unfit to drink. More than $34 million dollars’ worth of damage has been done to Gaza’s water infrastructure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW! Talk about ingenuity!! Bravo to this guy for having come up with a simple, elegant solution for creating clean water.

U.S. GOVERNMENT REAFFIRMS TOTAL SUPPORT FOR SAUDI WAR CRIMES IN YEMEN

Samuel Oakford just penned a powerful and important Op-Ed in the New York Times titled, Saudi Arabia Kills Civilians, the U.S. Looks the Other Way.

In the span of four days earlier this month, the Saudi Arabia-led coalition in Yemen bombed a Doctors Without Borders-supported hospital, killing 19 people; a school, where 10 children, some as young as 8, died; and a vital bridge over which United Nations food supplies traveled, punishing millions.

In a war that has seen reports of human rights violations committed by every side, these three attacks stand out. But the Obama administration says these strikes, like previous ones that killed thousands of civilians since last March, will have no effect on the American support that is crucial for Saudi Arabia’s air war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I never thought, when I was much younger, that the United States of America would be both directly responsible, and complicit, in the committing of war crimes; yet here we are, enabling Saudi Arabia in the bombing of hospitals, schools, shopping centers, and the killings of innocent civilians.

And why?!? First, Because the US-sponsored Al-Hadi was thrown out of power by the Houthi rebels, and no US-sponsored thug should ever have that happen to them without grave repercussions (let's say, militarily enhanced slaughter, courtesy of the Saudi Military?!?)

The second reason has to do with geography, and potential revolution in Saudi Arabia. The Saudis figure if they can undo the Houthi revolution in Yemen, such revolution might not come to Saudi Arabia. But the Saudis need to remember a caveat, stated by the late President John Kennedy: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution becomes inevitable."

Map of Yemen

At this point in this miserable war, President Obama should, legitimately, be gifted with banner in the Oval Office which reads:

"The United States of America: a proud partner in war crimes!"


With his enabling of Saudi Arabia against yemen, he has definitely earned this.

FLASHBACK - The Death of Vincent Foster

This is the story that nobody dares touch. This is the story that ended my career in Hollywood back in 1994.

Despite having reported the discovery of Dr. Haut's signed report confirming the existence of a second wound to Vincent Foster's neck, radio host Rush Limbaugh to this very day refers to Vincent Foster's death as a suicide.

So, what would had happened if Rush Limbuagh and Matt Druge, not to mention ABCNNBBCBS had had the courage to report this story back in 1994? I would have kept my film career, of course, but beyond that, we might have avoided three Presidential administrations convinced that they could do whatever they wanted to do and get away with it, whether it was murdering the White House Deputy Council, lying about Saddam's nuclear weapons to start a war of conquest, or scamming us all with 9-11, or human-caused global warming, Obamacare, etc.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this due to the story that the FBI records supporting the "Hillary nagged Foster to suicide" are not in the National Archives. They never were. Vince Foster was murdered.

Judge Orders Written Testimony From Hillary Clinton on Emails

A federal judge on Friday ordered Hillary Clinton to provide written testimony under oath about why she set up a private computer server to send and receive emails while secretary of state, ensuring that the issue will continue to dog her presidential campaign until the eve of the election.

In a brief ruling issued on Friday afternoon, the judge, Emmet G. Sullivan of Federal District Court in Washington, approved a motion by the conservative advocacy organization Judicial Watch to pursue its vigorous campaign to expose Mrs. Clinton’s use of the private server. In addition to requiring her testimony in writing, the judge allowed the group to depose a senior State Department aide who had warned two subordinates not to question her email practices.

Remember: the pharmaceutical industry is one of the most powerful lobbies in the country, and has "purchased" legislation, through strategic contributions to candidates, in order to create legislation which makes vaccinations mandatory, like that seen in California.

Idiocracy Director: It's Kind Of Scary How Quickly The Movie Became A Documentary

For years, fans of the 2006 cult film Idiocracy have lamented society’s drift toward the fictional reality in which farmers and leaders water their crops with sports drinks but can’t figure out why they won’t grow.

Earlier this year, the film’s screenwriter, Etan Cohen, tweeted, “I never expected #idiocracy to become a documentary.”

Hundreds of Americans Illegally Float Into Canada After River Party Goes Wrong

When a large group of Americans who were floating down a river that separates the U.S. from Canada were sent off course by extreme weather, it was up to our neighbor to the north to save them.

The Canadian Cost Guard said Monday that it embarked on a rescue effort for the group who were participating in the annual Port Huron Float Down on Sunday after heavy rains and winds sent them tumbling towards Canada without passports, Reuters reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Canada just sent them all back home without incident.

'News blackout prevents Americans from knowing what is happening in Yemen'

Barack Obama was betting that whatever the Saudis did in Yemen would not backfire inside of the US, Said Sadek, political sociologist, told RT.

US personnel assisting the Saudi-led coalition in coordinating air strikes in Yemen have largely pulled out from Riyadh in an apparent effort to distance themselves from the mounting civilian death toll in the 17-month long conflict, Reuters has learned.

In addition to withdrawing air support personnel, Lieutenant Ian McConnaughey, a US Navy spokesman in Bahrain told Reuters that the Pentagon also “sharply reduced” its “Joint Combined Planning Cell” (JCPC) staff to under five people.

Is Obama rigging 2016 election?

The Obama administration has just unveiled a plan to run the entire 2016 presidential election like one big Chicago ward — and it’s a very real threat to democracy itself.

It’s not as far fetched as it first seems. With the stroke of a pen, Obama could nationalize every election board in the country and make them follow any voting standards he draws up.

Unbelievably, the president says he’s doing this to fight voter fraud.

DID THE US JUST DECLARE A NO FLY ZONE IN SYRIA?

Over the course of the 5 year-long civil war in Syria, the US has slowly escalated its military involvement. However one significant move which they have so far failed to implement is a No Fly Zone (NFZ) enforced by their aircraft over all (or just part) of Syria.

Despite this, today the US may have tacitly announced just such a NFZ. In a press conference this evening, the Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook, made a number of statements regarding US forces in Syria. These statements came following reports that the US backed SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) had been bombed by Assad Regime aircraft in the city of Hasakah in northern Syria. Such airstrikes were also dangerously close to US Special Forces who were assisting the SDF in their fight against ISIS.

Specifically Peter Cook said that the US would use its airpower “as needed” to protect US personnel and partner operations. The aim of this was reportedly to send a message to other parties to “stay away from our forces”.

A CLINTON FAMILY VALUE: ‘HUMANITARIAN’ WAR

The transformation of the Democratic Party from the relative “peace party” to a belligerent “war party” occurred during Bill Clinton’s presidency and is likely to resume if Hillary Clinton is elected, writes James W Carden.

The current debate over the future of U.S. foreign policy is largely over whether the U.S. should continue its self-anointed role as the policeman of the world, or whether it might be wise for the next administration to put, in the words of Donald J. Trump, “America First.”

In some ways the now deeply embedded belief in the efficacy and rightness of humanitarian intervention dates back to NATO’s intervention in Bosnia in 1995. The success of the Dayton Accords seemed to cement the idea that America was, after all, the indispensable nation in the minds of the Clinton foreign policy team.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If what you want in your next President includes more wars; more offshoring/outsourcing of jobs; more income inequity; more regulatory madness on the part of the Federal Government, please do vote for Clinton, because I will guarantee you that this is what she will deliver for her Corporate and Israeli masters.

PROPAGANDA FOR SYRIAN ‘REGIME CHANGE'

Neocons and Clintonites have launched a major campaign with the goal of direct U.S. military intervention and aggression against Syria, potentially leading to war with Iran and Russia.

An early indication emerged as soon as it was clear the Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic Party nominee. Following the California primary, The New York Times reported on State Department diplomats issuing an internal memo “urging the United States to carry out military strikes against the government of President Bashar al Assad.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My dear Neocons/Clintonites; forgive me for my perplexity here.

The Russian military has been invited by the Syrian government to get rid of all the jihadists, attacking the country of Syria.

To the best of my knowledge and belief, as of today, the US military has NOT been invited to do the same, yet the US military is attempting, directly and indirectly, to bomb the crud out of Syria in order to affect regime change in Damascus.

And yesterday, the following statement was made by a very high ranking military official, to the effect that the US is ready to bomb Russian troops, defending the Syrian government;

Pentagon Says US Ready To Target Russian & Syrian Planes In Syria

Forgive me, but have you all gone collectively barking mad, just to please your Israeli/AIPAC enablers?!?

Israel wants regime change in Damascus in order to ultimately destroy Iran.

The US military, at this point in its existence, does not have the weaponry, the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

Our weapons procurement system is incestuous in the extreme, because those same Congressional Representatives who award weapons contracts are those same Representatives getting large contributions from our major arms manufacturers.

And how does this translate?!? By the time weapons are delivered to those military personnel who are supposed to use them, they many times are obsolete, in terms of other countries' weapons development, dysfunctional, and way over budget.

And one of the things which strikes me here is...the timing of this pressure on Obama to escalate this war.

The November election looms large, and I am willing to bet that both the DNC's and White House's internal polling show Trump winning that election in a landslide.

And what could be the nastiest thing the Democrats could possibly conjure, even before Trump takes the Oath of Office?!?

War with Russia over Syria must certainly sound like a delicious option to them.

After all, it is generally never their kids who get who get killed, or maimed for life, in such wars; it's other people's kids.

'Public are the enemy’ of British foreign policy – expert

UK foreign policy strategists consider the British public to be their enemy and, thus, bombard it with lie upon lie about the UK’s secretive antics around the world, a renowned author and scholar has claimed.

Writing for the Huffington Post on Monday, historian and foreign policy expert Mark Curtis laid out what he claims is the truth behind British foreign policy in the Middle East.

“British wars abroad have two enemies. First, the official enemy, portrayed as a monster whom we always battle with noble intentions. But second is the enemy within – us, the public,” he argues in an article titled “We Know about the Lies over Iraq but What about Syria?”

The public, he claims, present a serious risk to continued British tinkering in the Middle East and so it is “subject to state ‘information operations’ to convey messages and obscure facts, usually via compliant media organisations.”

UNIVERSITY STUDY SHOWS HOW PRISON POPULATIONS SKYROCKET — DESPITE RECORD LOW CRIME

The justice system’s aversion to repeat offenders — not a rise in actual crime — feeds the prison-industrial complex, a new study has essentially found, as a record number of people receiving prison sentences have prior convictions. Ohio State University sociologist Ryan King examined 33 years of data from the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines Commission — around 355,000 felony convictions — and found despite the sharp decline in the crime rate since the mid-1990s, judges are often faced with repeat-offenders, whom they tend to sentence more harshly. “The issue is that the average offender who appears before a judge for sentencing today has a much more extensive criminal record than they did in the past,” noted King, a professor of sociology at OSU.

REVEALED: ECB SECRETLY HANDS CASH TO SELECT CORPORATIONS

In June, the ECB began buying the bonds of some of the most powerful companies in Europe as well as the European subsidiaries of foreign multinationals. This pushed the average yield on euro investment-grade corporate debt to 0.65%. Large quantities of highly rated corporate debt with shorter maturities are trading at negative yields, where brainwashed investors engage in the absurdity of paying for the privilege of lending money to corporations. By August 12, the ECB had handed out over €16 billion in freshly printed money in exchange for corporate bonds. Throughout, the public was given to understand that the ECB was buying already-issued bonds trading in secondary markets. But the public has been fooled.

"This 'alt-right' brand is embracing extremism and presenting a divisive and dystopian view of America which should concern all Americans, regardless of party," the campaign wrote.

30 BLOCKS OF HILLARY & WATERMELONS

I haven’t provided a 30 Blocks of Squalor update in a while, but to my delight none other than Hillary Clinton made an appearance on the 30 Blocks this past week, spurring me to ponder her level of commitment to the black families of West Philly. She gave a stirring anti-capitalism speech at West Philadelphia High School. The purported reason for the rally was a get out the vote event. In the corrupt cesspool of Philadelphia that means having black voters casting more votes for their Democrat candidate than there are registered voters. Obama won 102% of the vote in 2008 and 2012 in West Philly. Hillary should hire the Black Panthers who did such a bang up job encouraging white voter turnout in 2008.

DRUG AND DEVICE MAKERS PAY THOUSANDS OF DOCS WITH DISCIPLINARY RECORDS

Pharmaceutical and medical device companies are continuing to pay doctors as promotional speakers and expert advisers even after they’ve been disciplined for serious misconduct, according to an analysis by ProPublica.

One such company is medical device maker Stryker Corp.

In June 2015, New York’s Board for Professional Medical Conduct accused orthopedic surgeon Alexios Apazidis of improperly prescribing pain medications to 28 of his patients. The board fined him $50,000 and placed him on three years’ probation, requiring that a monitor keep an eye on his practice.

Despite this, Stryker paid Apazidis more than $14,000 in consulting fees, plus travel expenses, in the last half of 2015.

Stryker also paid another orthopedic surgeon, Mohammad Diab of San Francisco, more than $16,000 for consulting and travel, even though California’s medical board had disciplined him for having a two-year-long inappropriate sexual relationship with a patient, whose two children he also treated. He was suspended from practice for 60 days, required to seek psychological treatment and given seven years’ probation. He is still required to have a third party present while seeing female patients.

Neither Apazidis or Diab returned emails or calls seeking comment.

"IT'S SCARY QUIET": THE PAST MONTH HAS SEEN THE LEAST VOLATILITY SINCE 1995

Just yesterday we posted a letter written by Jeffrey Miller (here) where he eviscerated Central Banks for the lunacy of their policies which have created complete complacency in the markets. The problem, as we pointed out, is that the Fed has lost all credibility by repeatedly caving every time they hint at a rate increase and markets sell off the tiniest bit. This "Yellen Put" is what enables desperate pension funds to pursue extremely risky strategies like the decision by the Hawaii Employees' Retirement System to allocate $1.6BN for a "put-writing" strategy (see ""Selling Puts" - Latest Pension Strategy Is Truly 2006 All Over Again") or like the decisions we discuss frequently of pensions buying longer and longer dated bonds for no yield.

Economically, it is feeling much like the calm before the storm.

And the problem for US Central Banks is, they most likely cannot hold off the catastrophe which is coming until after the November elections.

American Pravda: Was General Patton Assassinated?

three or four years ago I noticed a link on a prominent libertarian website suggesting that George S. Patton, one of America’s most renowned World War II military commanders, had been murdered by order of the U.S. government. Not being someone much drawn to conspiracy-mongering, the lurid claim seemed totally outlandish, but I decided to click my mouse and harmlessly examine a bit of Internet fringe-lunacy. However, the source turned out to be a lengthy article in Britain’s Sunday Telegraph, one of the world’s leading newspapers, describing a newly published book based on a decade of detailed research and interviews undertaken by an experienced American military affairs writer.

Air bubbles trapped in rock 800 MILLION years ago reveal oxygen levels spiked on Earth earlier than thought

It may not smell so fresh, but ancient air trapped in rock salt millions of years ago is revealing what prehistoric Earth’s atmosphere was like.

Researchers believe that pockets of air trapped inside crystals of the humble mineral as they formed may provide new insight into exactly when the conditions came about for life to flourish on the planet.

They claim that the approach provides the first direct measurements of the ancient atmosphere and suggests the oxygen boost which led to an explosion of life in the Cambrian period may have occurred far earlier than previously thought.

Republishing the footage under the heading "video suspected of being fake", a voiceover says: "Critics have suggested it is part of a propaganda war, aimed at creating a humanitarian excuse for Western countries to become involved in Syria.

“The workers did not make rapid rescue efforts, and instead quickly set up a camera.”

Clinton’s Transition Team: A Corporate Presidency Foretold

Rhetoric aside, Clinton is showing her solidarity with the nemesis of the Sanders campaign — Wall Street. The trend continued last week with the announcement that Clinton has tapped former senator and Interior secretary Ken Salazar to chair her transition team.

After many months of asserting that her support for the “gold standard” Trans-Pacific Partnership was a thing of the past — and after declaring that she wants restrictions on fracking so stringent that it could scarcely continue — Clinton has now selected a vehement advocate for the TPP and for fracking, to coordinate the process of staffing the top of her administration.

But wait, there’s more — much more than Salazar’s record — to tell us where the planning for the Hillary Clinton presidency is headed.

The film Vaxxed could be outlawed in California, if this bill passes

The shocking film Vaxxed (trailer) is drawing audiences all over the country. It details the confessions of a CDC researcher, William Thompson, who states that he and his colleagues buried data in a key study on the MMR vaccine.

In the study, the vaccine was given a free pass, with assurances that it didn’t increase the risk of autism in children—when, in fact, the data showed it did increase that risk.

***The key moments in Vaxxed are audio recordings of CDC researcher Thompson confessing his sins.

But wait. Now we have a bill, AB 1671, up before the California legislature. If it passes, it could make it a crime to screen Vaxxed or even write an article about it.

Those recordings of Thompson could be labeled “undercover,” and “illegal,” and therefore make them the target of AB 1671.

FBI Probes Attempted Beheading In Roanoke, Virginia By "Allah Akbar" Yelling Attacker

It may come as a surprise to Americans who were keenly following their favorite media outlet, that on Saturday, in Roanoke, Virginia, there may have been an attempted ISIS-inspired beheading attempt. Surprising, because virtually nobody covered it. However, as ABC reports this morning, the FBI has launched a federal terrorism investigation into a weekend stabbing in Roanoke, VA, looking at whether the attacker may have been trying to behead his victim in an alleged ISIS-inspired assault.

While it is unclear if there was a media blackout surrounding the attack, what is more troubling is that according to ABC, US authorities had been aware of the alleged attacker, 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui, of the Roanoke area, for some time. In the past year, he traveled to Turkey and may have tried to sneak into Syria, where ISIS is recruiting and inspiring sympathizers from across the world, sources said.

New emails disprove Clinton’s story

The Obama administration acknowledged Monday that the FBI found at least 14,900 more email messages former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton never turned over to the government, and officials are facing intense pressure to release them ahead of November’s election.

A federal judge ordered the State Department to speed up the process, and the Republican National Committee said the administration should strive to release an initial set of the secret emails within a month, or when the first states conduct early voting.

The existence of the emails marks yet more trouble for Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, who insisted she turned over all of her work-related messages in December 2014.

While migration figures are declining in parts of Europe, Reiner Klingholz believes now is just the calm before the storm.

UEFA has announced that it has opened disciplinary proceedings against Celtic for display of an “illicit banner.” The “illicit banner” is a reference to Palestinian flags waved by Celtic supporters last week.

The fundraising campaign has been set up by the Green Brigade, a Celtic fan group, which has pledged to put part of the money towards setting up and sustaining a youth soccer team in the occupied West Bank.
