Yes, They Really Do Want To Reduce The Population – 22 Shocking Population Control Quotes From The Global Elite That Will Make You Want To Lose Your Lunch

Most Americans have absolutely no idea, but a very dark philosophy is spreading like wildfire among the global elite. This philosophy is an obsessive belief that humanity has become a cancer that is destroying the earth.

There are now large numbers of global leaders that are convinced that the exploding population of the world has become like a virus or a plague, and that it must be combated as such.

In fact, it would be very difficult to understate just how obsessed many members of the global elite are with population control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I understand there is a population problem and always will be, because sex is much more fun than dying! That being said, the problem I have with the population control people is they always want someone ELSE to die or go without children.

FLASHBACK - Hillary Clinton Demands Equal Pay But Doesn’t Put Her Money Where Her Mouth Is

Hillary Clinton has long positioned herself as a champion of equal pay for women. Ironically, new reports show that the former Secretary of State is, herself, part of the problem.

During her time in the U.S. Senate, Clinton paid women in her office 72 cents for each dollar paid to men, according to a report by Washington Free Beacon.

Is This the Future of Bernie's Revolution?

A small, progressive political party is in Philadelphia looking to capitalize on his movement.

As the fractured Democratic National Convention gradually unified behind Hillary Clinton over the course of the week, Bernie Sanders' frustrated supporters were left to wonder what was next for their would-be political revolution. An obscure political party thinks it has the answer.

Leaders of the Working Families Party, a progressive party backed by labor unions and community activists, were in Philadelphia this week to make the case to Sanders supporters that the WFP should carry the torch.>>>

China says to hold drills with Russia in South China Sea

China and Russia will hold "routine" naval exercises in the South China Sea in September, China's Defence Ministry said on Thursday, adding that the drills were aimed at strengthening their cooperation and were not aimed at any other country.

The exercises come at a time of heightened tension in the contested waters after an arbitration court in The Hague ruled this month that China did not have historic rights to the South China Sea and criticized its environmental destruction there.

China rejected the ruling and refused to participate in the case.

"This is a routine exercise between the two armed forces, aimed at strengthening the developing China-Russia strategic cooperative partnership," China's defense ministry spokesman Yang Yujun told a regular monthly news conference.

"The exercise is not directed against third parties."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could get dicey and quickly. As reported at yahoonews.com on 23 July of this year:

The United States, India and Japan are set to kick off week-long war games in the Pacific, beefing up naval ties as they warily eye an increasingly assertive China and its military buildup. Warships from the three countries are to begin the joint exercises on Friday, after an official opening ceremony at the Sasebo Naval Base in southern Japan on Thursday. Known as the Malabar Exercise, the annual event usually involves India and the US, but Japan's Maritime Self-Defence Force (MSDF) will take part this year, the third time since 2007. The exercises off Japan's southern coast come on the back of rising regional tensions as Delhi and Tokyo remain embroiled in territorial spats with Beijing. China is also at loggerheads with some Southeast Asian nations over its claim to large swathes of the South China Sea. Washington has been increasingly turning its focus to Asia as it looks to counter Beijing's growing influence and a military buildup that has unnerved some of its regional neighbours. "India, Japan and the United States have a shared strategic interest," said international relations expert Takehiko Yamamoto, professor emeritus at Tokyo's Waseda University. "The aim of this naval exercise is for (the three countries) to manage a vast sea area stretching from the western Pacific to the Indian Ocean. "They need to make sure the lines of communication stay robust -- this exercise has China in mind," he added. India is nervous about the so-called "string of pearls", the concept of a network of ports around the Indian Ocean to which China's navy would have access, Yamamoto said. "For India, this is a great threat," he said.

All it is going to take is one stupid miscommunication, or misinterpretation, on the part of the Indian, Japanese, US, Russian, and Chinese military, (or a deliberate false flag, to be blamed on China and/or Russia), and we will be off and running in a shooting war potentially with both countries.

JUSTIFICATION FOR ISRAELI RACISM AND APARTHEID

An Israeli mayor from the Galilee apologized for causing offense by saying that he does not want Arabs to use swimming pools of predominantly-Jewish towns and cities.

CHELSEA MANNING COULD FACE ADDITIONAL PUNISHMENT FOR HER SUICIDE ATTEMPT

U.S. Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning tried to kill herself on July 5 in her cell at Fort Leavenworth military prison. Now, military officials are considering filing charges in connection to the suicide attempt that could make the terms of her imprisonment much more punitive — possibly including indefinite solitary confinement — while possibily losing any chance of receiving parole.

According to a charge sheet posted by the ACLU, Manning was informed by military officials on Thursday that she is under investigation for “resisting the force cell move team,” “prohibited property,” and “conduct which threatens.” In the weeks following her suicide attempt, she has been active on social media, thanking her followers for their moral support.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out to those contemplating additional charges against Manning as a result of her attempting to commit suicide are making themselves look like monsters, both to American citizens and to the world, and making her look ever more the victim to a military system which doesn't brook embarrassment at its use of torture and the creation of massive "collateral damage" well.

As Manning expressed during a statement upon conviction on espionage charges:

The decisions that I made in 2010 were made out of a concern for my country and the world that we live in. Since the tragic events of 9/11, our country has been at war. We’ve been at war with an enemy that chooses not to meet us on any traditional battlefield, and due to this fact we’ve had to alter our methods of combating the risks posed to us and our way of life. I initially agreed with these methods and chose to volunteer to help defend my country. It was not until I was in Iraq and reading secret military reports on a daily basis that I started to question the morality of what we were doing. It was at this time I realized in our efforts to meet this risk posed to us by the enemy, we have forgotten our humanity. We consciously elected to devalue human life both in Iraq and Afghanistan. When we engaged those that we perceived were the enemy, we sometimes killed innocent civilians. Whenever we killed innocent civilians, instead of accepting responsibility for our conduct, we elected to hide behind the veil of national security and classified information in order to avoid any public accountability. In our zeal to kill the enemy, we internally debated the definition of torture. We held individuals at Guantanamo for years without due process. We inexplicably turned a blind eye to torture and executions by the Iraqi government. And we stomached countless other acts in the name of our war on terror. Patriotism is often the cry extolled when morally questionable acts are advocated by those in power. When these cries of patriotism drown our any logically based intentions [unclear], it is usually an American soldier that is ordered to carry out some ill-conceived mission. Our nation has had similar dark moments for the virtues of democracy—the Trail of Tears, the Dred Scott decision, McCarthyism, the Japanese-American internment camps—to name a few. I am confident that many of our actions since 9/11 will one day be viewed in a similar light. As the late Howard Zinn once said, "There is not a flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people."

There is a Biblical caution and injunction "That which you sew, you shall also reap."

What the US government will ultimately reap, in places like Afghanistan; Iraq; Somalia; Bahrain; Syria; and Yemen, cannot possibly be good, because the actions of our military are engineered to control foreign resources to which the US government, and the corporations which support our politicians, have absolutely no moral right.

Do not get me wrong here; I respect our military, and have family and friends serving, so to me this is very personal.

But for a successful outcome, the US has to be on the right, and moral, side of history, when it goes to war.

The above-mentioned military engagements, unfortunately, have not been on the right and moral side of history, and as Shakespeare said, "Aye, there's the rub."

Can Clinton Ignore the Base and Defeat Trump?

Whereas Donald Trump was floundering badly in the polls in June, he appears to be doing quite a bit better as we approach August.

While it may have seemed for a time that Hillary Clinton could defeat Donald Trump with one hand tied behind her back, it’s looking now like she will need both hands wrapped around his neck to get the job done. Actually, more precisely, she may need the base.

This is a novel concept for corporate Democrats, because to them the base is tantamount to a tool kept in the shed and only used when needed. But the base has access to better, more timely information now, and they appear to be acting on it. So firing up the base may require something more tangible this time around.

Putin is watching happily from the sidelines as NATO tears itself apart

Russian President Vladimir Putin seemingly cannot believe his luck as he watches NATO cause near irreparable harm to itself from the sidelines.

NATO has been a major force in reigning in Putin's revanchist vision for Russia, with the alliance holding a series of military exercises and basing troops in vulnerable nations throughout Eastern Europe and the Baltics as a check on Russian aggression following the annexation of Crimea.

Now, however, that sense of unity across Europe and North America against Russian aggression is flailing, as NATO does drastic amounts of self-harm.

Suddenly, a Palestinian breast cancer survivor becomes a 'security threat'

Nadia Abu Nahla who survived breast cancer, is very late for the periodic medical checkup she needs. In 2009, she was successfully treated at Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer. She underwent chemotherapy, an operation, radiation; she asked and received exit permits for all stages. Of all her family, only her mother was permitted to accompany her.

Afterward, Abu Nahla continued regular follow-ups with the team that treated her with dedication. It is known how critically important the follow-up is. The medical equipment needed for periodic exams is not found in the Gaza Strip. It is forbidden to import it. Severe limits on movement also impair the quality of treatment in Gaza. And in general, it is her right to remain under the supervision of the medical team that knows her so well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How did this woman's request "not meet the criteria" for urgent medical care, under the circumstances?!?

This is yet another callous, inhumane example of Israel's "serial genocide", by refusing to provide desperately needed medical care to a breast cancer survivor.

I guess the wretchedly apartheid Israeli government official who rejected her request for care is hoping that whatever is causing her pain will kill her in the most slow and excruciating manner, or that she will commit suicide.

US Envoy: Syrian Offer of Safe Passage for Aleppo Civilians ‘Chilling’

US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power condemned Syria’s leaflets, urging civilians in rebel-held East Aleppo to flee and offering them safe passage and access to temporary shelters “chilling,” insisting that the civilians must never trust a government “that’s bombed & starved them.”

Syria’s military has increased its control over the area surrounding Aleppo recently, controlling all roads leading into the east. Eastern Aleppo is controlled mostly by al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front, with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) having a presence in two of the districts.

Power’s condemnation of leaflets urging civilians to evacuate, apart from being in keeping with condemning Syria for whatever they do, doesn’t make a lot of sense, since it exactly mirrors what Iraq has done in recovering cities from ISIS, trying to get as many civilians as possible out before using US airstrikes to pound the fighters within.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Powers states that Syrian civilians must never trust a government “that’s bombed & starved them ”, then they cannot trust the US government or the alleged "moderate" Syrian rebels!!

DEMOCRATS ABANDON WORKERS TO TRUMP

***
Trump has found the potential key to victory because he realizes that the Democratic Party has given up on these workers, who were once considered to be their main constituency. These workers have become even more alienated from their jobs, as Marx predicted, because their jobs no longer exist. And according to Trump, it’s because the Democrats—especially the Clintons—embraced bad trade agreements like NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement.

ANOTHER '90s scandal returns to haunt the Clintons - billionaire accused of being front for Chinese Communist bid to influence Bill's 1996 election finally faces being questioned after years on the run

A Chinese billionaire at the center of a 20-year-old Clinton foreign donor scandal is being called in to answer questions from Congress about his role in the influence-buying scheme, in a move that could revive yet another Clinton controversy from the 1990s.
The House Oversight Committee told Daily Mail Online that it will seek an interview with Ng Lap Seng, 68, who evaded congressional investigators for years.
He has now re-appeared in the United States and is being held in New York on unrelated bribery charges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the "China-gate" scandal, in which Bill Clinton allowed sensitive technology with military applications to be sold to China, while Chinese money was funneled into his re-election campaign.

This is why it is legitimate to ask if Hillary was selling US secrets, using her private email server with weak security to deliver the secrets, and her so-called charitable foundation to collect and launder the payments.

iTunes users targeted with £20 purchase refund scam - how to protect yourself

Apple's iTunes customers are being warned to delete "scam" emails that are being sent to some customers claiming they have been charged more than £20 to download a song.

Reports have surfaced on social media of iTunes users receiving an email claiming to be from Apple, detailing an alleged recent song purchase from the iTunes Store that costs £23.34.

However, the aim appears to be to encourage them to click a link within the email to 'cancel and manage subscriptions', but in fact leads to a fraudulent website that asks users to enter their personal details.

Apple customers have also reported receiving emails claiming to be from iTunes that include a bill for Netflix.

Hacked DNC Emails’ Startling Implications

Not since JournoList, the forum of left-wing journalists who coordinated their messaging to support the Democrats, has there been such a pile of smoking guns proving that the left-wing, so-called mainstream media, are, in fact, the public relations arm of the Democrat Party.

>>>

The Democratic National Convention was planned as an event to demonstrate party unity as Democrats from around the country come together to crown Hillary Clinton as the party’s presidential nominee. But undermining that unity was a series of leaked emails demonstrating that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) had its thumb on the scale the whole time. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) supporters who complained about the party’s partiality toward Hillary Clinton now have their proof that the process was rigged. “The messages [from the DNC] showed members of the committee’s communications team musing about pushing the narrative that the Sanders campaign was inept and trying to raise questions publicly about whether he was an atheist,” reported The New York Times.
***
And perhaps most importantly, the leak revealed the likelihood that Mrs. Clinton’s reckless and grossly negligent handling of classified materials for the four years she was secretary of state almost certainly landed those emails in the hands of the Russians, the Chinese, and various other intelligence agencies around the world, making her subject to blackmail if she were to ever become president.

Turkey Shakes Up Armed Forces, U.S. Says Purges Harming Cooperation

Turkey has begun overhauling its armed forces following a failed coup, but its NATO ally the United States complained that the purges of generals and officers were hindering cooperation in the fight against Islamic State.

The military announced late on Thursday the promotion of 99 colonels to the rank of general or admiral, part of a shake-up that left General Staff chief Hulusi Akar and the army, navy and air force commanders in their posts.

The announcement came shortly after the dishonorable discharge of nearly 1,700 military personnel over their alleged roles in the abortive July 15-16 putsch, in which at least 246 people were killed and more than 2,000 injured. About 40 percent of all generals and admirals have been dismissed since the coup.

President Tayyip Erdogan, who ordered the restructuring, accuses U.S.-based Muslim preacher and scholar Fethullah Gulen of orchestrating the coup and wants Washington to extradite him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the White House, State Department, Pentagon, and Congress; in the words of my late grandmother, the horse is already out of the barn.

Rather than complaining at Erdogan, who is very suspicious that the US and NATO were part of the coup against him, you should be crafting a reasonable solution for getting those 2500 NATO troops, (of whom 1500 are Americans) and the 51 bombs, out of Incerlik, and on their way home.

Unfortunately, that will most probably not happen until Imam Gulen, who Erdogan believes is the initiator of the coup, is extradited from Pennsylvania to Istanbul.

Obama is most probably not going to allow that to happen, unless Gulen, a CIA operative, is quite dead, and delivered home in a coffin.

Turkey is pivoting to Russia, and may well leave NATO at any time, believing that a military partnership with Russia and China is more to their benefit at this point.

The best thing the US and NATO can do is cut their losses, and get out of Turkey; this will be logistically uncomfortable, but most probably the non-worst option at the moment.

They may have to negotiate to enhance the capacities the Souda NATO base in Crete, but such a move may be well worth the effort.

ANOTHER '90s scandal returns to haunt the Clintons - billionaire accused of being front for Chinese Communist bid to influence Bill's 1996 election finally faces being questioned after years on the run

A Chinese billionaire at the center of a 20-year-old Clinton foreign donor scandal is being called in to answer questions from Congress about his role in the influence-buying scheme, in a move that could revive yet another Clinton controversy from the 1990s.

The House Oversight Committee told Daily Mail Online that it will seek an interview with Ng Lap Seng, 68, who evaded congressional investigators for years.

He has now re-appeared in the United States and is being held in New York on unrelated bribery charges.

One campaign group is even suggesting that Congress grant him immunity from the charges in return for testifying.

Ng, a Macau businessman with ties to the Chinese government, was accused of funneling over $1 million in illegal foreign donations to support Bill Clinton's reelection campaign in 1996.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watch for this guy to become "very depressed" in jail to the point of "getting Arkancided" in some spectacular, breath-taking manner, before he is supposed to testify, as he was very much one of the "linchpins" in the Chinagate scandal.

As reported at en.wikipedia.org:

The 1996 United States campaign finance controversy was an alleged effort by the People's Republic of China to influence domestic American politics prior to and during the Clinton administration and also involved the fund-raising practices of the administration itself. While questions regarding the U.S. Democratic Party's fund-raising activities first arose over a Los Angeles Times article published on September 21, 1996,[1] China's alleged role in the affair first gained public attention when Bob Woodward and Brian Duffy of The Washington Post published a story stating that a United States Department of Justice investigation into the fund-raising activities had uncovered evidence that agents of China sought to direct contributions from foreign sources to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) before the 1996 presidential campaign. The journalists wrote that intelligence information had shown the Chinese embassy in Washington, D.C. was used for coordinating contributions to the DNC[2] in violation of United States law forbidding non-American citizens or non-permanent residents from giving monetary donations to United States politicians and political parties. A Republican investigator of the controversy stated the Chinese plan targeted both presidential and congressional United States elections, while Democratic Senators said the evidence showed the Chinese targeted only congressional elections. The Chinese government denied all accusations. Yah-Lin "Charlie" Trie[edit] The most significant activity by Yah-Lin "Charlie" Trie was a $450,000 attempted donation from him to Clinton's legal defense fund, which Trie allegedly delivered in two envelopes each containing several checks and money orders. The fund immediately rejected $70,000 and deposited the remainder, but ordered an investigation of the source. The investigation found that some of the money orders were made out in different names but with the same handwriting, and sequentially numbered. The fund then rejected the donation entirely, and returned the deposited funds two months after the initial contribution.[6] Born in Taiwan, Trie emigrated to the U.S. in 1974. He eventually became an American citizen and co-owner of a restaurant in Little Rock, Arkansas. The 1997 special investigation describes Trie as having attempted to develop an international trading business (Daihatsu International Trading Corporation), having maintained or accessed accounts in Little Rock and Washington, D.C. into which Macau-based real estate businessman Ng Lap Seng wired >$1M USD from Macau and Hong Kong accounts, and as having never succeeded in the trading business (based on bank and tax records indicating substantive income only from Ng).[7][page needed] In Little Rock, Trie befriended Clinton, then governor of Arkansas. In addition to the attempted donation to Clinton's defense fund, Trie and his immediate family donated $220,000 to the DNC which was also later returned.[7][page needed] Immediately after the donation to Clinton's defense fund, Trie sent a letter to President Clinton that expressed concern about America's intervention in tensions arising from China's military exercises being conducted near Taiwan. Trie told the President in his letter that war with China was a possibility should U.S. intervention continue: ...[O]nce the hard parties of the Chinese military incline to grasp U.S. involvement as foreign intervention, is [sic] U.S. ready to face such [a] challenge[?]... [I]t is highly possible for China to launch [sic] real war based on its past behavior in [sic] Sino-Vietnam War and Zhen Bao Tao war with Russia. (Charlie Trie, letter to President Clinton, March 21, 1996)."[7][page needed] After Congressional investigations turned to Trie in late 1996, he left the country for China.[7][page needed] Trie returned to the U.S. in 1998 and was convicted and sentenced to three years probation and four months home detention for violating federal campaign finance laws by making political contributions in someone else's name and for causing a false statement to be made to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).[8]

But wait, the scandal gets even deeper! As reported at Phyllis Schaffly's report eagleforum.org in June of 1998:

Now we know why the Democrats were so vicious in their attacks on Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN) and Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN). Theirs were the committees that were closing in on the China connection, the scandal that can bring down the Clinton presidency, the scandal that has made Congressmen start to utter the T word (treason). A series of front-page news stories in the New York Times (May 15, 16, 17) essentially vindicated Thompson's charge that the Chinese Communist Government tried to influence the 1996 U.S. election with campaign contributions. The fact that Clinton personally issued the waivers to allow shipments of U.S. technology that greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of Communist China's missiles is grounds for impeachment, regardless of whether or not there was any quid pro quo for those decisions. U.S. space technology was just what China needs to make intercontinental ballistic missiles and point them more accurately at U.S. cities. And he did it despite the objections of the U.S. State Department, Defense Department, Justice Department, and intelligence agencies. Because China shared U.S. technology and equipment with Pakistan, Clinton is also responsible for India starting the nuclear race in Asia. India has fought three wars with its neighbor, Pakistan, since the end of World War II and looks upon Pakistan's new military capabilities as a direct threat. Clinton's policy decisions were, on their face, damaging and dangerous to U.S. national security. And the calendar provides an ominous frame of reference. When Clinton's policy decisions that dramatically benefited China's military capability and Loral's profits, and the hundreds of thousands of dollars of campaign donations from the Chinese government and from Loral, are all placed on the calendar, the sequence shows a pattern of corruption that cannot be ignored. That's the real campaign finance scandal.

Bill Clinton betrayed this country for Chinese election contribution cash; this is why I hope Seng is wearing his Kevlar undies in prison, because, with what he knows and can tell to a Grand Jury, he may well single-handedly, destroy Hillary's presidential bid, if the testimony is held before the elections.

FLASHBACK - Clinton Does Best Where Voting Machines Flunk Hacking Tests: Hillary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders Election Fraud Allegations

At the end of the climactic scene (8 minutes) in HBO’s Emmy nominated Hacking Democracy (2006), a Leon County, Florida Election official breaks down in tears. “There are people out there who are giving their lives just to try to make our elections secure,” she says. “And these vendors are lying and saying everything is alright.” Hundreds of jurisdictions throughout the United States are using voting machines or vote tabulators that have flunked security tests. Those jurisdictions by and large are where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is substantially outperforming the first full wave of exit polling in her contest against Senator Bernie Sanders.

White House petition - Elimination of the electronic voting machines nation wide

It has been demonstrated that the current electronic voting machines can be easily hacked and an election essentially taken from the rightful choice by we the people. In a free nation, this is unacceptable and must be removed if a free and open society is to continue in America. We cannot allow candidates to be appointed by a programmed system of voting, it must truly be the choice of the people to decide elections and not the highest campaign earner to be awarded the position of president of these united states of America.

But if you need a reintroduction to Mrs. Clinton, we will oblige: She is an opportunist without anything resembling a conviction with the exception of her unwavering commitment to abortion, a “public servant” who along with her husband grew vastly wealthy exploiting her political connections and renting access to everybody from Goldman Sachs to Vladimir Putin, a petty, grasping, vindictive, meretricious time-server whose incompetence and dishonesty have been proved everywhere from Little Rock to Benghazi. Dressed symbolically all in white (as though she were a bride or a monarch enjoying her privilège du blanc), she delivered a speech that was one part It Takes a Village and eleven parts old State of the Union speeches from Barack Obama and her husband.

BYE BYE MIDDLE CLASS: THE RATE OF HOMEOWNERSHIP IN THE UNITED STATES HAS HIT THE LOWEST LEVEL EVER

The percentage of Americans that own a home has fallen to the lowest level ever recorded. During the second quarter of 2016, the non-seasonally adjusted home ownership rate fell to just 62.9 percent, which was exactly where it was at when the U.S. Census began publishing this measurement back in 1965. This is not what a “recovery” looks like. All throughout the Obama years, the percentage of Americans that own a home has gotten smaller and smaller and smaller. The reason for this, of course, is that the middle class in America is dying. Last year, we learned that middle class Americans now make up a minority of the population for the first time ever. In order to have a high rate of home ownership, you need a thriving middle class, and you can’t have a thriving middle class without good paying middle class jobs. This is why I write about the evisceration of the middle class so extensively, because the U.S.

THE DRAMATIC FAILURE OF GLOBALISATION

According to wikipedia, Globalisation is the process of international integration arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas and other aspects of culture. However, over the last ten years there has been a sea change decline in all the indicators that would measure the success of this model. Democracy, economic growth, freedom and the principles of an interchange of world views and culture has been all but abandoned to a vice like grip of globalisation driven by corporate principles of power and greed resulting in war, terrorism, a biblical refugee crisis, fear and a fully co-opted media.

The Economist has just published its annual index on democracy. They found that out of 167 countries, only twenty are “full democracies”. Less than 13 per cent of the world’s countries can now claim to be a democracy. Given that America has graciously forced so much democracy on the world, one could be forgiven for thinking all is not well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real, inescapable fact here is that globalization only "works" for people who are already massively rich; the"trickle down" of profitability to working class people from globalization has never been a reality; only an empty phrase, created to "comfort" those who have lost their jobs through globalization's relentless offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs to the centers of the lowest-cost labor, who are now working two or three minimum-wage jobs, maxing out their credit cards, and may well never be able to be financially solvent again.

There is a lot of economic desperation going on this country right now, and a real sense of having been utterly financially betrayed with by the Globalist Powers that Be in order to enrich their own wallets.

I do not know how that sense of desperation is ultimately going to manifest; but as a Christian pacifist activist, I sincerely caution people NOT to give this government the kind of confrontation in which they have expended billions to put down with extreme prejudice.

“What I’m maintaining is there is a much easier offense to go after, and that’s what’s called inurement. Inurement is a criminal offense, and it means you run a charity for your own benefit,” Corsi explained.

He said that is much easier to prove than the kind of corruption alleged by Schweizer.

“You don’t need a quid pro quo,” he said. “You just show the financial reporting is so apparently fraudulent and so masking of money that you know went through the corporation because the United Nations reports more that they gave to the Clinton Foundation reports they got. Where did the additional missing money go?”

Assessing a Long, Plodding Sales Pitch From Hillary Clinton

Tonight’s acceptance speech by Hillary Clinton was not particularly enjoyable to listen to for 57 minutes, but it probably did the job. In fact, if she doesn’t get a sizable polling bump out of this convention, which largely worked and dodged the problems that Democrats feared, then it will be time for Hillary and her allies to panic.
By her standards, this was pretty good delivery. There were occasional moments where she enjoyed herself, speaking with genuine affection for Bill and Chelsea. Yet I’ve never seen anyone look so unhappy while telling us, “I’m so happy this day has come.”

CLINTON CAMPAIGN: RUSSIA RIGGING US ELECTION BY EXPOSING HOW WE RIGGED ELECTION

Russia is manipulating the 2016 U.S. presidential election by leaking hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) servers — emails that show the DNC rigged and manipulated the Democratic primary in favor of Hillary Clinton.

Call it an exercise in hypocrisy, or call it a deflection to detract from the fact that America’s political process is corrupt beyond belief. Either way, this is the narrative prevailing in the media as the Democratic Party, led by Clinton surrogates, attempts to downplay its own internal corruption by pinning the blame on Russia in what can be described as a “neo-Red Scare.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the flip?!?

This charge against Russia makes absolutely zero sense whatsoever.

And the DNC's attempt to use this "excuse" as the reason why the emails got hacked shows that they have utterly zero respect whatsoever for Americans' having the capability to think logically.

But it does demonstrate, painfully clearly, that neither the DNC nor Candidate Clinton can take personal responsibility for anything; that is one the factors that makes a Clinton presidency so horrifically dangerous, both for this country, and the world.

The plain, miserable and unvarnished truth is that Clinton is, at the end of the day, one of the elites; these are the people whose interests she will defend and enrich; not those of We the People.

Under her watch, we can expect more wars; a return to the draft of both our young men and young women; more income inequality; more American jobs outsourced and offshored; more enhanced military and financial aid to Israel (which is, BTW, illegal, per the Symington Amendment) with which to crush and ultimately destroy the Palestinian people and their hopes of statehood; and more economic misery in general.

Owners and employees of hedge funds have made $122.7 million in campaign contributions this election cycle, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics—more than twice what they gave in the entire 2012 cycle and nearly 14% of total money donated from all sources so far.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is very publicly owned by the corporations which support her; this means that there will be absolutely nothing in her platform to seriously improve the state of affairs for We the People, many of whom are struggling like crazy just to stay afloat.

But I guarantee you this: those corporations who own her will simply get more wealthy under her watch, because all of her newly proposed tax burdens will fall upon us, rather than them, marginalizing and destroying what is left of the middle class in this country to absolute zero.

Was the US behind the July 15 coup attempt?

At this point, ill-will is apparent aside from double standards.

Otherwise, the U.S., which has been an ally of Turkey for nearly a century and regards Turkey as a "modern partner," would not have left Turkey alone during this coup attempt and Gülenist militants would not have been defended in the U.S. media. As Russia underlined, it would have warned Turkey, which is a NATO member, due to the mobility in the Turkish military. And most importantly, Gülen, who is responsible for the 246 casualties, would not be living undisturbed in his luxurious residence in Pennsylvania without even giving testimony.

We must ask the authorities and journalists in the U.S. a few questions:

Welcome to the Communist Party, U.S.A.

How Hillary’s scary speech revealed her mistake in wearing a white pants suit to her coronation.

Wearing a white pantsuit, Hillary Clinton plodded out on stage to accept the nomination that she had schemed, plotted, lied, cheated, rigged and eventually fixed a series of elections to obtain.

Then she claimed that she was accepting the nomination of a race she had rigged with “humility”.

Humility is not the first word that comes to mind when thinking of Hillary Clinton. It is not even the last word. It is not in the Hillary dictionary at all. But this convention was a desperate effort to humanize Hillary. Everyone, including her philandering husband and dilettante daughter, down to assorted people she had met at one point, were brought up on stage to testify that she really is a very nice person.

This wasn’t a convention. It was a series of character witnesses for a woman with no character>>>

The Power Of "Nyet" - How One Word Staggered Imperial Washington

The way things are supposed to work on this planet is like this: in the United States, the power structures (public and private) decide what they want the rest of the world to do. They communicate their wishes through official and unofficial channels, expecting automatic cooperation. If cooperation is not immediately forthcoming, they apply political, financial and economic pressure. If that still doesn’t produce the intended effect, they attempt regime change through a color revolution or a military coup, or organize and finance an insurgency leading to terrorist attacks and civil war in the recalcitrant nation. If that still doesn’t work, they bomb the country back to the stone age. This is the way it worked in the 1990s and the 2000s, but as of late a new dynamic has emerged.

No, We Don’t Know Yet That Russia is Behind DNC Email Hacks. Here’s Why.

There is a strong narrative underway. It was propelled largely by Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, and members of the Democratic National Committee after news broke over the weekend that thousands of embarassing internal emails were posted to WikiLeaks. The theory goes that the Russian government is behind the hack because they want to meddle in U.S. politics to help Donald Trump (who is “cozy” with Vladimir Putin).

Different media organizations continue to cite “government sources” as confirmation of Russia’s evil intentions. (Russia has denied any involvement). And, if you actually examine the facts, you will see that we simply don’t have enough yet to prove this theory out. Yes, there are some indicators that it could be Russia. Yes, there is reportedly metadata hidden in early documents that show they were edited with Russian language settings.

Google search connects Trump's book to Hitler's 'Mein Kampf'

Google’s search function has been thrust into the spotlight again for connecting Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler. On Wednesday, typing the name of Trump’s 2015 book “Crippled America” into a Google image search, in addition to bringing up images of that book, displayed images of Adolf Hitler’s 1920s manifesto “Mein Kampf.” (The "Mein Kampf" images have since been removed.)

Google has been in the spotlight before for a connection between Trump and the infamous Nazi leader. In June, Googling the phrase “When was Hitler born” also produced an image of Donald Trump and listed his birthday. In that case, Google said it removed the Trump image, and a recent search confirms that the candidate’s image is no longer connected with Hitler’s birthday.

Death of 747 now 'reasonably possible' says Boeing

Six months after slicing production of the iconic Boeing 747 to just one plane a month, the aerospace company has decided to halve the rate of production and flagged it is close to killing off the plane.

A new Form 10-Q filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission spells out the ugly situation as “Lower-than-expected demand for large commercial passenger and freighter aircraft and slower-than-expected growth of global freight traffic have continued to drive market uncertainties, pricing pressures and fewer orders than anticipated.”

Boeing has therefore “canceled previous plans to return to a production rate of 1.0 aircraft per month beginning in 2019.”

The company still has “32 undelivered aircraft” on its books, some yet to be built. But it also has “a number of completed aircraft in inventory” for which buyers cannot be found.

“Don’t Cry For Us Syria … The Truth is We Shall Never Leave You!”

“Don’t cry for us Syria” has recently become a motto/logo of sorts for many physically and psychologically brutalized youth around this ancient land. They are the youngsters who represent a new generation of Syrians, many of whom were born in this century. It is into their patriotic hands that Syria’s Torch has been passed.

Brexit Boost for Scotland's Wacky War of Independence

A month on from the Brexit vote and Scotland's EU-smitten First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, continues to stamp her foot in frustration. But hopefully, after her frantic tour of European capitals pleading for Scotland to remain a vassal of the EU one way or another, the absurdity of her stance is beginning to dawn on her.

Too fast? They're furious: Pilots' union says American Airlines compromises safety

The president of American Airlines’ pilots union said he’s alarmed by a new management initiative to speed up some flight plans, stating in a Thursday letter to union members that it could “compromise the margin of safety.”

“This erosion of the safety margin cannot be tolerated. Pilot pushing leads to ‘rush to comply’ behavior,” Capt. Dan Carey, who was elected president of the Allied Pilots Association earlier this month, wrote in the letter. “American Airlines’ operations are clearly over-scheduled, and management is now resorting to improvisation. Don’t let management’s schedule-planning mistakes become your next crisis.”

Carey is referring specifically to an initiative laid out in a July 12 memo from American’s chief operating officer Robert Isom. The memo outlines “speed up flight plans” as a way to reduce delays in certain circumstances.

‘Questionable benefit’: TPP trade deal viewed with suspicion by Australian economic commission

Why would Turnbull from Goldmans agree to a deal that would lock in Goldman's profits with the treasonous 'Investors-State Dispute Settlement'??? Oh that's right the $200,000 a week he is being paid from investments handled by Vanguard on Wall St. inspires more loyalty than the mere $6000 Wk Prime Minister's salary provided by the taxpayers

Andrew Robb, the man who signed the TPP now has a consultancy for the Corporations on how use Australians for profit.

A newly-released Hilary Clinton email confirmed that the Obama administration has deliberately provoked the civil war in Syria as the “best way to help Israel.”

Clinton goes on to asset that directly threatening Bashar Assad “and his family” with violence is the “right thing” to do:

"In short, the White House can ease the tension that has developed with Israel over Iran by doing the right thing in Syria.
With his life and his family at risk, only the threat or use of force will change the Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s mind."

The email proves—as if any more proof was needed—that the US government has been the main sponsor of the growth of terrorism in the Middle East, and all in order to “protect” Israel.

Record 94,708,000 Americans Not in Labor Force; Participation Rate Drops in May

A record 94,708,000 Americans were not in the labor force in May -- 664,000 more than in April -- and the labor force participation rate dropped two-tenths of a point to 62.6 percent, near its 38-year low, the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday.

When President Obama took office in January 2009, 80,529,000 Americans were not participating in the labor force; since then, 14,179,000 Americans have left the workforce -- some of them retiring and some just quitting because they can't find work.

Flashback - Osama bin Laden: A dead nemesis perpetuated by the US government

Osama bin Laden is dead. The news first came from sources in Afghanistan and Pakistan almost six months ago: the fugitive died in December [2001] and was buried in the mountains of southeast Afghanistan. Pakistan's president, Pervez Musharraf, echoed the information. The remnants of Osama's gang, however, have mostly stayed silent, either to keep Osama's ghost alive or because they have no means of communication.

Government Agency Spent Millions on Public Relations Campaign to Improve Image

Top officials at the Government National Mortgage Association spent $3.9 million on a public relations campaign designed to create positive images for themselves, including a magazine piece on how one of them avoided obesity. Spending tax dollars to polish an individual employee’s image isn’t allowed under Federal Acquisition Regulations, the Department of Housing and Urban Development inspector general said in a report released Tuesday. The association—which is popularly known as “Ginnie Mae”—is part of HUD.
