Turkish Terrorist Who Shot Up Cascade Mall Voted Repeatedly Despite Not Being U.S. Citizen

Turkish Muslim terrorist Arcan Cetin who murdered five people at the Cascade Mall in Washington has voted in three elections despite not having US citizenship.

..."While voters must attest to citizenship upon registering online or registering to vote at the Department of Licensing Office, Washington state doesn't require proof of citizenship. Therefore elections officials say the state's elections system operates, more or less, under an honor system."

Manifesting The Worst Old Norms

A half-century ago I was a 17-year-old who had just been hired to do door-to-door canvassing for the Minneapolis Housing Authority to inform people in the poorest neighborhoods that they could nominate community members to serve on the board of the agency. We held trainings and exercises to develop our team and one of the supervisors, a very nice and somewhat chubby fellow, said he hoped in 10 years that the acceptance of heavy build—fatter—would apply to women as much as it did then to men.

Alicia Machado adored 'famous publicity!' from her fat-shaming star turn as Trump paid for lavish wellness routine and said her weight was 'not unacceptable' as Miss Universe

Alicia Machado loved the free publicity her dramatic battle with weight-gain provided during her reign as Miss Universe, news reports from that year show.

And her 'wellness' routine, embraced as a weight-loss tactic and paid for by then-pageant owner Donald Trump, was a lavish affair few women can afford to indulge in.

Tripp told Klein she realized she sounded 'melodramatic,' but 'I can only say that from my perspective, I believe that she and I were at the time in danger, because nothing stands in the way of these people achieving their political ends.'

Trump brings up Bill Clinton's 'impeachment for lying' and promises a 'bright and clean future' – while saying Hillary 'had something' to avoid getting charged in email scandal

Republican Donald Trump referenced Bill Clinton's impeachment as he once again railed against Hillary Clinton's 'corruption' and suggested she 'had something' to avoid getting charged by the FBI in its email investigation.

'The American people have had it with years and decades of Clinton corruption and scandal,' Trump told a crowd of people in Bedford, New Hampshire. 'And impeachment for lying – impeachment for lying,' he said. 'Remember that? Impeach.'

Trump's return to impeachment talk comes days after he said he held back from bringing up Bill Clinton's affairs during the first presidential debate.

Trump said afterward he decided not to mention Bill Clinton's 'indiscretions,' saying, 'I didn't wanna say what I was going to say with Chelsea in the room

Mysterious outbreak at Orange County elementary school leaves 30 children and 10 staff members covered in bites and blisters

At least 30 children at an elementary school in California's affluent Orange County have come down with a mysterious rash - and no one knows why.

An outbreak of bites and blisters at Lake Forest Elementary School has left children itching through the night, and worried parents searching for answers.

Ten staff members at the school have also come down with the rashes and five new cases in the Saddleback Valley Unified School District have since been reported.

The outbreak is reportedly appearing as rashes, bites and welts, on anywhere from faces to arms, feet, backs, chests and waistlines, according to parents.

Mosquitoes, fleas, spiders, mites and mice have all been ruled out as the source, said Jared Dever of the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control.

Dever said bed bugs are also unlikely the cause, as they are noticeable and tend to strike when people are asleep or immobile, he told NBC Los Angeles.

“Yes, the US supports the opposition [in Syria], but not directly. They support the countries that support us.

Entire Australian state without power after 'unprecedented' storm

The entire state of South Australia was without power Wednesday after being pummelled by a "unprecedented" storm, with the blackout causing chaos as authorities warned of more wild weather.

The state -- about one and a half times the size of France and with a population of some 1.7 million -- lost power Wednesday afternoon after severe thunderstorms struck with destructive wind gusts of up to 140 km per hour (87 mph), torrential rain and large hailstones.

Trees were torn down, roofs ripped out, thousands of homes and business were without power and cars were gridlocked on flooded roads as traffic lights stopped working in what South Australia's Premier Jay Weatherill said was an "unprecedented weather event".

Celebrities You Didn't Realize Were 9/11 Truthers

Last night, I stumbled across a write-up for a documentary film that was announced in 2012 called September Morn, a movie — like Loose Change — that would posit that 9/11 was an inside job. The doc was meant to feature a few celebrities, one of which — Woody Harrelson — was doing Hunger Games at the time, and has since done True Detective.

That documentary never materialized, and though you can see many, many references to the announcement of the movie, it just disappeared. I began to wonder, in fact, if there was a conspiracy behind its disappearance because Hollywood didn’t want to put one of its huge franchises in jeopardy. As I travelled down this silly rabbit hole, I found nothing else on September Morn, except that it’s apparently still in pre-production, but I did end up discovering other celebrity truthers, some of whom I really like. A few of these names didn’t surprise me. Some bummed me out.

India Carries out 'Surgical Strikes' in Pakistan's Kashmir, Pakistan Downplays

India's director general of military operations, Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh, said India received "very credible and specific information" that militants located in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir were planning attacks on Indian-controlled Kashmir and "in various other metros in our country", UPI reported. "Significant casualties have been caused to the terrorists and those who are trying to support them," Singh said in New Delhi. Indian officials said Wednesday night's attack was in response to two militant attacks on Indian positions in September, including one in which 18 Indian soldiers were killed when militants stormed an army base near the Pakistani border, an attack Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said would "not go unpunished." The circumstances surrounding India's purported cross-border attack are not fully clear. India and Pakistan both contest the Kashmir Valley, which has led to two wars over control of the territory since its independence from Britain in 1947.

Regardless of whether you’re a millionaire with multiple foreign bank accounts or a recent college graduate with a boatload of debt, the status of being a United States citizen brings with it a burden that will only grow heavier over time.

Student Suspended, Visited by Cops, Forced Psych Eval — For Pro 2nd Amendment School Project

The incident began Monday after Harvey, as many students sometimes do, left his USB drive in the computer lab. Another student opened Harvey’s 11th-grade project and reported him to school officials.

At 7pm Monday evening, Harvey’s family said they were paid a visit by local law enforcement, who investigated Harvey’s claims the project was from last school year, and cleared him of any criminal mischief.

But that apparently wasn’t enough to satisfy the Manville School District who suspended and then promptly ordered Harvey to undergo a 5-hour psychological evaluation stemming from the months later discovery of his anti-gun control project.

It seems the teacher, who assigned the work, can no longer recall having done so. But the 12th grader disagrees and so does his family.

Harvey said his teacher approved his topic (against gun control), he completed the project, and received an “A” for his efforts.

The two girls are part of a group of at least four students that school-based police officers have used Tasers on since the start of the 2016-2017 school year, according to media reports The Huffington Post has tracked. Nationwide, school police have used Tasers on students in at least 84 other incidents since 2011, according to an August HuffPost investigation.

The scale and scope of bomb-politics varies with the practitioner. ‘Wholesale bombers’ are state actors, who engage in large-scale, long-term bombing designed to destroy adversary governments or movements. ‘Retail bombers’ are groups or individuals engaging in small-scale, sporadic bombings, designed to provoked fear and secure symbolic outcomes.

In the most dramatic diplomatic escalation involving the Syrian conflict in the past years, yesterday John Kerry issued an ultimatum to Russia, in which he warned his colleague Lavrov to stop bombing Aleppo or else the US would suspend all cooperation and diplomacy with Russia.

24 hours later, this appears to be precisely what is about to take place, leading to an even greater geopolitical shock in Syria. According to Retuers, the United States is expected to tell Russia on Thursday it is suspending their diplomatic engagement on Syria following the Russian-backed Syrian government's intense attacks on Aleppo, U.S. officials said on condition of anonymity.

Pain Spreads To Germany's Second Biggest Bank: Commerzbank Scraps Dividend, Fires 20% Of Workforce

With Deutsche Bank mercifully missing from overnight headlines for the first day in almost two weeks, it is time to bring attention to Germany's second largest bank which, as we first reported earlier in the week citing a Handelsblatt leak, confirmed it is also going through a historic rough patch. This morning, Commerzbank said it plans a wide-ranging business restructuring that includes scrapping the bank's dividend for the rest of the year, terminating nearly 10,000 jobs - roughly 20% of its workforce - and merging two large units.

“The focus on the core business, with some business activities being discontinued, and the digitalization and automation of workflows will lead to staff reductions amounting to around 9,600 full-time positions,” Germany’s second-largest lender said.

India Assets Slide After Modi Launches "Surgical Strikes" In Kashmir, Killing Two Pakistani Soldiers

India conducted "surgical strikes" on suspected terrorist camps just across the border in Pakistan, marking its first direct military response to an attack on an army base it blames on Pakistan. The military offensive was the worst since 1999, when then-Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee - also a member of Modi’s nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party - responded to what he said was repeated cross-border infiltrations by militants in Kashmir.

At the same time, Pakistan said two of its soldiers had been killed in exchanges of fire and in repulsing an Indian "raid", but denied that India had made any targeted strikes across the de facto frontier that runs through the disputed Himalayan territory of Kashmir.

The region is held equally by India and Pakistan but claimed in full by both. Terrorist violence killed 201 people in Kashmir in 2016, the deadliest year since 2010, according to the South Asia Terrorism Portal.

Shooting itself in the foot: US legalizes lethal weapon deliveries to Ukraine

Last week, the US Congress approved the Stability and Democracy for Ukraine Act, or “STAND for Ukraine.” As the Ukrainian Embassy in the US has reported, American congressmen unanimously supported the bill. The act’s adoption was an expected development. After all, it is well known that a Ukrainian lobby effectively works in the US and throughout the West. During his visit to New York, Poroshenko met with representatives of the Ukrainian Diaspora who have had strong positions in American political circles since the end of the Second World War... But the experience of American support for “democracy” around the world attests to the fact that the US Congress is in fact promising new bloodshed and destruction for the people of Ukraine and Donbass. Ukrainians have never been good strategists, and this obvious truth has never benefitted the majority.

Saudi Arabia to fund Syrians’ suits against US

The US Congress has overridden Obama's veto and adopted JASTA legislation against terrorism sponsors. It allows relatives of the victims of 9/11 to sue government of the Saudi Arabia for alleged involvement of the Kingdom in the terror acts. But the case is that the US will be able to recognize any country as an accomplice to terrorism and then any American may sue it. Maybe the case is not in Saudi Arabia, but Russia? 'It's a coin with two sides. The US Congressmen have chosen a very dangerous way. Political establishment of the US is guided very often with idealistic views. Neo-conservatives say for example: 'Don't you have democracy? Well, our bombers fly to you'. Now this idealism is backed with legal regulations. Such suits will definitely deteriorate the US international state of affairs, as the whole international policy of the US is a complete fail. The Americans are never strategic.

Poland to start WWIII against Russia. Funny and scary at the same time

Poland is restless and itching. Striving to revive the great Rzeczpospolita, the country creates an intricate tangle while trying, with eagerness, to prove its devotion to Western masters. This comes into contrast with realities and opportunities, but the insatiable desire to show its importance seems to be uncontrollable. Attempts of Polish politicians to create an anti-Russian military bloc "Intermarum," renewed investigation into the death of Polish President Lech Kaczynski in a plane crash... "One should not look at the current state of affairs in Poland as if a civil war is gaining momentum there. The Polish government is not going to fulfill many of the promises that were made prior to the past political elections. This is the reason behind the intentions to revisit the air crash near Smolensk in 2010, in which 86 Polish citizens, including President Kaczynski, were killed.

Moscow to take tough measures in response to USA's threats

"Most likely, Moscow already discusses what measures should be taken in response to such statements, but Russian politicians, unlike Kirby, do not make them public.

Kirby alluded to Al-Qaeda that the Americans used to set against the Soviet Union - not only in Afghanistan, but also in Central Asia. This is an allusion to the fact that terrorism may penetrate into Russia, and the United States will contribute to that. If the USA contributes to the movement of terrorists to Russia, if the Americans supply them with arms, Russian special services will not leave it without attention. Russia will take adequate measures against those who do not just threaten, but mastermind a terrorist war against Russia," First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee for International Affairs, Leonid Kalashnikov told Pravda.Ru.

Russia’s S7 plans to set up corporate spaceport on orbit — source

Russia’s S7 group that acquired the Sea Launch floating spaceport is viewing an option of setting up a private spaceport on the orbit, a source close to the new management of the project told TASS on Thursday. "An idea is considered to set up an orbital spaceport provisionally titled "Space Launch", in a similar way to the Sea Launch and the Land Launch. Examination of the idea is at the initial stage, the source said. S7 did not comment on source’s statements. TASS has not yet received comments from the Russian federal space agency and the Rocket and Space Corporation (RKK) Energia company.

The men - all from Saudi Arabia - spoke of their shock at being mistakenly named by the FBI as suicide terrorists. None of the four was in the United States on September 11 and all are alive in their home country.

The Telegraph obtained the first interviews with the men since they learnt that they were on the FBI's list of hijackers who died in the crashes in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

All four said that they were "outraged" to be identified as terrorists. One has never been to America and another is a Saudi Airlines pilot who was on a training course in Tunisia at the time of the attacks.

Saudi Airlines said it was considering legal action against the FBI for seriously damaging its reputation and that of its pilots. The FBI released the list of 19 suicide terrorists three days after the attacks.

FLASHBACK - Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Which is why we know that the claim that Saudi Arabia was behind 9-11 has no more basis in fact than the claim that Saddam had nuclear weapons or that Assad gassed his own people right in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors.

US, Israel using Saudi Arabia to cover up own role in 9/11: Analyst

"When Hillary Gets Scared, She Plays The Russia Card"

George H. W. Bush’s unsurprising support for Hillary Clinton strengthens the alliance of careful, conniving warmongers (including both neocon and “liberal interventionist” camps), admiring former generals, middle and upper-class “Clinton Coalition” African-Americans (including clerics and TV commentators like MSNBC’s awful anchor/DNC shill Joy Reid snarling first about Bernie as much as Trump, and now trashing Putin along with Trump), Wall Street donors, older women too driven by identity politics, masochistic and naive former Bernie supporters settling for “the lesser evil,” and miscellaneous communities of the confused.

It is a rainbow coalition of everyone she needs on board when she starts bombing Syria—seriously bombing Syria, courageously doing so one-upping Barack Obama (who she thinks blew his opportunities to take out Assad in 2011 and 2013) and producing another regime change accompanied by her triumphant Tarzan yell. This time it will be: “We came, we saw, Syria died!”

President Assad Of Syria Is Not An Evil Dictator Killing His People: The US Lied about It

What do evil dictators look like? What do they talk like? Just how wicked is an evil dictator’s wife ? Should she be toppled along with her husband? Who am I talking about? President Assad of Syria and his wife, Asmas Al Assad.

These are the same ones boy Rubio, McCain, Lyndsay Graham, Ryan, the Bush’s, Obama, Kerry and Hillary all want to topple down to bring peace to Syria. That is THE LIE they are and have been shouting. What they really want to do is take over Syria in order to hurry along their New World Order agenda. The media whores push the establishment narrative that president Assad of Syria is evil and a corrupt dictator. They fear that when you realize who these people really are, you will be sorry you ever believed any lies told about them, let alone what they have conspired to do against them and all the citizens of Syria.

The FBI’s Hillary email probe is looking even more like a coverup

It’s bad enough that FBI Director James Comey agreed to pass out immunity deals like candy to material witnesses and potential targets of his investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server.

But now we learn that some of them were immunized despite lying to Comey’s investigators.

In the latest bombshell from Congress’ probe into what’s looking more and more like an FBI whitewash (or coverup) of criminal behavior by the Democratic nominee and her aides, the Denver-based tech who destroyed subpoenaed emails from Clinton’s server allegedly lied to FBI agents after he got an immunity deal.

That’s normally a felony.

Lead developer of HPV vaccine admits it's a giant, deadly scam

Diane Harper, M.D., professor and chair of the department of Family and Geriatric Medicine at the University of Louisville, revealed at the 4th International Conference on Vaccination that HPV vaccines are essentially worthless, because rates of cervical cancer in the U.S. are extremely low anyway.

Her speech was intended to promote the benefits of vaccines, but she changed her mind and went in a different direction in an effort to "clean her conscience about the deadly vaccines," according to The Daily Sheeple.

The data thereby supposedly confirms that only the Ukrainians could have shot down MH-17.

Wiesel and Peres dedicated their lives to a project that deflects Jewish culpability in the oppression of the Palestinian people. Though world leaders will gather for Peres’s funeral in the coming days, Jews need to mourn aspects of the violence Wiesel and Peres enabled. The idea of Jews simply finishing the job that Wiesel and Peres began, viewing their legacy as simply unfinished, won’t do either.

Israel has embarked wholesale on the displacement and ghettoization of the Palestinian people. The trajectory Wiesel’s and Peres’s life is a dead-end for Palestinians and Jewish history, if one believes that without an ethical center, Jewish life is truncated, if not voided altogether.

Hysteria at UN Betrays Western Terror Sponsors

Hysteria and histrionics at the United Nations Security Council from the three permanent members, the United States, Britain and France, was tantamount to a signed confession. Ironically, one can imagine how the wording of such a «confession» would go: We the intensely vexed members are hereby displaying our boorish displeasure that the terror proxies we covertly sponsor in Syria for regime change are being thrashed.

Such was the tawdry display of undiplomatic conduct by the US, Britain and France, with officials from these countries inveighing against Russia with unsubstantiated, sensationalist accusations of committing war crimes. The intemperance was then followed by tantrums and walk-outs from the Security Council meeting – a meeting that these three members had originally convened.

Farmers suing Syngenta over GMO corn granted class action status in federal court

The legal dispute against Syngenta began in 2014, when the company allegedly “prematurely and irresponsibly” released new seed varieties that were not approved by China. Those varieties, Agrisure Viptera and Duracade, contaminated US corn exports to China, leading to a trade ban in late 2013.

Plaintiffs said the trade ban and China’s continued unwillingness to buy GMO corn from the US had resulted in estimated losses of $5 to $7 million for domestic corn growers. China at the time had not approved corn grown by the Syngenta seeds.

How the JASTA Override on Saudi Could Bite Americans in the Ass

President Obama vetoed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, but Congress has for the first time in his presidency over-ridden his veto. This is a disastrous law with potentially ruinous effects on the US economy and US policy.

Individual tort suits against other countries had been forestalled by a doctrine of sovereign immunity, from which the United States and other countries also benefit. JASTA removes sovereign immunity for any state found to be practicing terrorism anywhere, apparently as defined by US court judges.

Saudi Arabia is extremely unpopular in the US, more especially on the Left, but also among right wing Islamophobes. But however appealing it is to let the 9/11 victim families sue Riyadh for the attacks, it is wrong-headed every which way from Sunday.
