Geneva talks begin as US-backed war in Syria expands

Election Official Gets Called out for Curious Spending, Calls Reporter a “B*tch” Live on Air, then Quits

It’s amusing to watch corruption get exposed, however small time in comparison to the big picture in this country. Too bad we don’t get to see things like this go down on a national level…

After getting called out by WSMV reporter Alanna Autler on live TV for buying expensive dinners and office furnishings including a $614 picture frame, Election Board Chairman Ron Buchanan, the top election official in Nashville, responded not with a thoughtful response or even a pathetic excuse, but instead by calling her a bitch live on air.

Former lawyer for the 'DC Madam' wants to release her black book containing details of more than 800 clients - and claims it could impact the Presidential election

The 'DC Madam's' former lawyer wants to release her black book of clients - and claims it could have an impact on the Presidential race.

Montgomery Blair Sibley represented Deborah Jeane Palfrey in 2008 when she was convicted of federal racketeering and various prostitution charges.

The scandal of her arrest rocked the nation's capital as some of the city's biggest power players, including father-of-four Senator David Vitter, were outed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FWIW I had Deborah Jean Palfrey on my talk radio show shortly before she died, and she stated emphatically that if she turned up dead, it would NOT be a suicide. And given all the convenient "suicides" surrounding our top politicians, I conclude that she was murdered to silence her.

I'll bet Montgomery Blair Sibley gets really, REALLY depressed in the next few days! :)

Donald Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize

Monday was not a good day for Donald Trump. His infamous phrase ‘loser’ came back to haunt him when he was forced to admit defeat to rival Ted Cruz in the Iowa caucus after weeks of being billed as the Republican frontrunner.

But on Tuesday, it emerged that Trump’s name had reportedly made it on to a list of nominees for the Nobel Peace Prize — alongside figures such as Pope Francis and a campaigner for Isis rape survivors.

The mechanics of globalism – Migration as a weapon of war and ethno-engineering

It is this ‘humanitarian’ narrative EU officials have volunteered to both their constituents and the media – this idea that Western nations hold a duty of care and protection over the millions displaced by war.

Indeed, Western powers are responsible. Actually no … their role far exceeds the responsibility since the Mid-East has burnt under their fire. Let us remember which powers in fact engineered and purposely exported destabilization to the MENA over the past decade. From Iraq, to Syria, Libya and Yemen, military pyres have lit up many skies, engulfing all in their wake.

I would argue that Western powers stand guilty of crimes against humanity; responsibility is not strong enough of a word to define what in fact they have inflicted onto several continents.

Hillary Clinton Destabilized Libya so the West Could 'Exploit the Country'

"She was the flagbearer, if you will, of the NATO operation," Kara says. "Hillary Clinton was very much in favor it, and she applauded it and she supported it, and she sort of sold it to the US public…She is very central to the ouster of Gaddafi and the consequence chaos that ensued.

"And it’s utterly shameful that the person currently running for the highest office in the US is someone who gleefully celebrated the lynching and the extrajudicial assassination of a 70-year-old man," she adds, referring to former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

DEA Offered Sinaloa Cartel Members Immunity In Exchange For Information On Rivals

In a report published last week, El Universal confirmed long-standing rumors that the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has met and negotiated with members of Mexico’s feared Sinaloa Cartel, headed by Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán. Between 2000 and 2012, the paper writes, DEA agents met more than 50 times with cartel members on Mexican territory, without the knowledge of Mexican authorities, to obtain information on rival drug gangs. In exchange for that information – as long as it turned out to be true -- the DEA offered an array of future benefits, including dropping charges pending against Sinaloa members. That strategy was authorized by David Gaddis, then the DEA director of operations for the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, the US is setting up a drug monopoly centered on the Sinaloa cartel ( who also gut guns from the Fast and Furious program) and is wiping out the competition to keep drug profits up!

How Decades of Conservatives Against Peace Helped Create the Trump Phenomenon

There is much to praise and agree with in National Review’s cover editorial, “Against Trump.” Donald Trump is no friend to limited government proponents. Indeed, his flip-flopping on key issues of concern to libertarians and conservatives make it unclear whether a President Trump would govern from his current perspectives or be the Trump who is a dear friend of the Clintons. But National Review misses a key part of the Trump phenomenon. It isn’t an aberration, but is a natural outgrowth of conservatism abandoning its core values of limited government and a strict national interest foreign policy during the Bush years. It may even be an expression of an underlying worldview of fear and defeatism present in conservatism ever since National Review led the Cold War break with the antiwar, anti-New Deal Old Right.

Rafael Cruz, the father of U.S. Senator Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz , has become a much-lauded 'Tea Party' speaker, featured in many mainstream news and political outlets. But he also holds some controversial religious beliefs which his presidential-minded son might like erased, or at the very least, 'deemphasized.'
Purifying Fire International, the religious organization of which Rafael is reported to be "the Director," completely 'memory-holed' their website within days of being brought under scrutiny by numerous alternative media sources.

Afghanistan is on the brink after US invests $100 billion

Afghanistan's economy is worsening and its security deteriorating despite more than a decade of U.S.-led reconstruction efforts and more than $100 billion poured into the country, according to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, an independent oversight agency created by Congress in 2008.

The agency's investigation, conducted between October and December of last year, paints a grim picture of the country — including millions of dollars squandered on projects that never came to be, a resurgent Taliban, infiltration by the so-called Islamic State and a handful of guilty pleas from U.S. military personnel in bribery cases.

DHS Official Thinks People Should Have To Give Up Their Anonymity To Use The Internet

Apparently, the only way to stop terrorists from hating us for our freedom is to strip away those offensive freedoms.

Erik Barnett, the DHS's attache to the European Union, pitched some freedom-stripping ideas to a presumably more receptive audience via an article for a French policy magazine. Leveraging both the recent Paris attacks and the omnipresent law enforcement excuse for any bad idea -- child porn -- Barnett suggested victory in the War on Terror can be achieved by stripping internet users of their anonymity. You know, all of them, not just the terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think this is more about finding whistle-blowers than finding terrorists.

The New Supreme Court Case That Could Take Away Your Second Amendment Rights

The US Supreme Court may take up a case soon that could lead to citizens being banned from owning stun guns and other non-lethal self-defense weapons.

At issue is a case called Caetano v. Massachusetts, in which Massachusetts’ highest court ruled that the Second Amendment right to bear arms does not apply to non-lethal weapons and that the state’s ban on them could stand. That case involved Jaime Caetano, a woman who was carrying a stun gun in her purse for protection from an abusive ex-boyfriend. The ruling was appealed to the Supreme Court, which has yet to determine if it will hear it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United States Supreme Court already ruled in United States vs Miller that the Second Amendment reserves to the people the same weapons as the uniformed services. If a cop has pepper spray, you are allowed to have it. If the cops have stun guns, you are allowed to have them. If the cops have thirty round magazines ... and so forth.

Crypto flaw was so glaring it may be intentional eavesdropping backdoor

An open source network utility used by administrators and security professionals contains a cryptographic weakness so severe that it may have been intentionally created to give attackers a surreptitious way to eavesdrop on protected communications, its developer warned Monday.

Socat is a more feature-rich variant of the once widely used Netcat networking service for fixing bugs in network applications and for finding and exploiting security vulnerabilities. One of its features allows data to be transmitted through an encrypted channel to prevent it from being intercepted by people monitoring the traffic. Amazingly, when using the Diffie-Hellman method to establish a cryptographic key, Socat used a non-prime parameter to negotiate the key, an omission that violates one of the most basic cryptographic principles.

Syrian Civil War: Could Turkey be Gambling on an Invasion?

A month before Turkey shot down a Russian bomber which it accused of entering its airspace, Russian military intelligence had warned President Vladimir Putin that this was the Turkish plan. Diplomats familiar with the events say that Putin dismissed the warning, probably because he did not believe that Turkey would risk provoking Russia into deeper military engagement in the Syrian war.

In the event, on 24 November last year a Turkish F-16 shot down a Russian bomber, killing one of the pilots, in an attack that had every sign of being a well-prepared ambush. Turkey claimed that it was responding to the Russian plane entering its airspace for 17 seconds, but the Turkish fighters made every effort to conceal themselves by flying at low altitude, and they appear to have been on a special mission to destroy the Russian aircraft.

SAUDI WARPLANES BOMB CHILDREN IN SANAA

Saudi Arabia continues to shock the world with its crimes against civilians in Yemen. On this occasion, Saudi warplanes bombed children’s amusement park in Sanaa. The death toll is still undetermined, as local sources in Sanaa reports. Yemen has been under military attacks by Saudi Arabia since late March last year. This is not the first time the Saudi Air Force has carried out such a raid. Saudi Arabia has committed dozens of war crimes on the territory of Yemen. The strikes have taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories. Last month the Saudi-led coalition attacked the day-care center for blind children in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a. The fact Saudi warplanes bomb children in Sanaa is nothing but an element of psychological warfare in order to push the panic in the city, using tools and methods are subject to a rule of war crime.

"Masks of the Revolution" Broadcasted on French TV Against Kiev's Wishes

The documentary "Masks of the Revolution" is an investigation into the events in Ukraine during the "revolution" in 2014. Earlier, the Ukrainian Embassy in France asked Canal+ to reconsider their decision to broadcast the film. It was shown on Monday (1st February) evening on French TV against Kiev's wishes. The author of the movie, a French journalist named Paul Moreira, over the course of a one-hour film recalled the events in Ukraine in 2014, starting from the protests on the Maidan and ending with the tragedy in the trade unions building in Odessa. During the filming, the reporter interviewed representatives of the nationalist party "Svoboda" and the groups "Azov" and "Right sector" (banned in Russia). The film is based on eyewitness accounts of the events, configured as nationalist and Pro-Russian.

Because, you know, everyone is just bringing their AK47s to the local pizza joint, getting hammered, and leaving those guns sitting around in precarious positions where they could accidentally go off and kill everyone... or some such nonsense.

How Corruption Cripples America’s Military

America’s military budget is roughly 7.2 times that of Russia ($610 billion compared to $84.5 billion), but even Western news-accounts are saying that the weaponry produced in Russia is superior overall to the weaponry produced in the United States.

Compare the top-of-the-line fighter jets of the two countries: that’s the F-35 fighter-jet produced by the U.S. corporation Lockheed Martin, versus the Su-35 fighter jet produced by the Russian government (its wholly owned Sukhoi Company). The F-35 costs around $100 million per plane. The Su-35 costs around $65 million per plane.

Kiev Attempts Breakthrough in Donetsk, Residents Demand Removal of UAF From Donbass

The situation in Donbass has worsened. The UAF attempted a breakthrough on the Northern outskirts of Donetsk, with continued shelling of the Kuibyshevsky district of the capital of the DPR, Zaytsevo village on the outskirts of Gorlovka shudders from the shells of the Ukrainian security forces. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Donetsk People's Republic, for the past day the UAF shelled DPR 109 times. Moreover, the Ukrainian security forces violated the ceasefire with the use of technology prohibited by the Minsk agreements. During the shelling the UAF used mortars of calibres of 120 mm, 46 times – 82 mm mortars 53 times and used AGS and small arms 10 times. There has been heavy fire tonight in Zaytsevo village, situated to the north of Gorlovka. According to the DPR, the UAF fired on a DPR-controlled part of the village for half an hour. From the position of the Ukrainian side there was about 80 minutes of caliber 82 and 120 mm.

Obama Will Ask for $1.1 Billion to Cut Heroin Deaths in U.S.

President Barack Obama will ask Congress for $1.1 billion in his next budget to combat the U.S. opioid abuse epidemic, a crisis so severe that it’s emerged as a 2016 campaign issue and has led two senators to block his nominee to run the Food and Drug Administration.
At least 28,648 people in the U.S. died of causes linked to opioid drugs in 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control, almost as many as are killed annually in car crashes. The class of drugs includes heroin and some prescription painkillers such as oxycodone.
Obama will include the money in the budget plan for fiscal 2017 that he sends to Congress Feb. 9, the White House said Tuesday in a statement. The amount Obama wants to spend on the drug epidemic over two years is about the same as the $1 billion he’s requested to speed development of cancer treatments and try to find cures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to shake my head, upon reading this, looking at the sheer hypocrisy here.

A number of years ago, little Portugal did something absolutely remarkable, and it worked. It decriminalised a small amount of drugs for personal use, then helped get people counseling to get off the drugs.

And the surprise was, this approach worked brilliantly, and the numbers indicated that far fewer kids started experimenting with drugs because of the program.

Of course, such a program was completely logical, and science-based, which means it has as much chance of being introduced in the US as pigs do of flying.

Additionally, are you aware that right now, under the US and NATO occupation, the production of opium poppies, from which heroin is manufactured, is soaring in Afghanistan?!?

And why are the US and NATO allowing this to continue?!?

Because it is the selling of this product which funds off-the-shelf operations undertaken by various alphabet soup agencies, such as the CIA, etc..

So when President Obama gets up and asks for money to combat this, it is only for public consumption, and he will, of course, allow the flourishing of the opium poppy crop in Afghanistan to continue, because it is financially lucrative, and the money stays off the Federal books for operations that reek of seediness.

Think Iran/Contra, and you'll get the picture.

"It is the fault of the East that Ukrainian society is not capable of bringing adequate politicians to the surface who ultimately will explain to the East that it is Ukraine, and in Donetsk and Luhansk they should speak the Ukrainian language exclusively. If somebody doesn't like it – the borders are open, they can get in a car and drive to Putin," said Farion.

In bid to counter Putin, Obama seeks to quadruple military spending in Europe

President Barack Obama's administration said Tuesday it was seeking to expand U.S. military spending in Europe four-fold in a bid to reassure allies still unsettled by Russia's incursion into Ukraine.

The new spending would increase to $3.4 billion under the new plan, which is set to be formally unveiled next week as part of Obama's final presidential budget.

The Pentagon also said Tuesday it was ramping up spending for the battle against ISIS, doubling last year's request to $7 billion.

The White House said that figure would allow for "continuous U.S. armored brigade rotations" through stations in central and eastern Europe, as well as ramped-up U.S. participation in NATO military exercises and the deployment of additional combat vehicles and supplies to the region.

Obama has sought to affirm the U.S. commitment to NATO ever since Russia annexed sections of Ukraine in 2014, causing alarm in other neighboring countries, some of which belong to the military alliance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia is not the problem here; it is the warmongers in the Administration and Congress who never met a good faith attempt at real-world negotiations they did not utterly despise.

The ugly truth of the business is, this money will be earmarked for pre-positioning troops and weapons into Europe, ultimately for a war against Russia.

Why Ramarley Graham's Parents Just Slept On The DOJ's Steps

It was still dark in lower Manhattan, a little before 6 a.m. Wednesday, when the parents of Ramarley Graham shook off their sleeping bags and assembled on the steps outside the Department of Justice office of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

Dozens of supporters had joined them for the all-night vigil in honor of the Bronx teen gunned down by NYPD police exactly four years ago. They slept when they could on the cold, brick plaza outside the DOJ building. They sang songs, read poems and talked to reporters.

Then Constance Malcolm and Frank Graham, Ramarley's parents, stepped up to a podium.

"We want accountability," Malcolm said. "Preet Bharara, stop dragging your feet!"

"Losing a child is the worst possible thing anything can go through," Frank Graham said. "You don't sleep at night and you wonder during the day... You cry yourself to sleep when you do get sleep and you wake up with tears."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Already Struggling With Dengue, Hawaii Braces Itself For Zika

The mosquito-borne Zika virus could hit Hawaii especially hard if it arrives in the Aloha State, according to an expert from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

While a widespread outbreak of Zika in the Hawaiian islands remains unlikely at the moment, the state is at higher risk because of its tropical climate and large number of foreign travelers. And many experts are voicing serious concerns about the state's ability to handle such an event, should it occur.

Hawaii is already battling its largest outbreak of dengue fever since the 1940s, a disease that is carried by the same species of mosquito that carries Zika.

In a December assessment of Hawaii's response to the current dengue outbreak, Lyle Petersen, director of the CDC’s Division of Vector-Borne Diseases, said there are "critical deficiencies" within the Hawaii Department of Health that should be "urgently addressed."

Flint Residents Bring Brown Water And Clumps Of Hair To Washington

Gladyes Williamson paced the halls of Congress on Wednesday, armed with a bottle of brown water and clumps of her own hair.

She'd traveled with a group from Flint, Michigan, where high lead levels have made the water irritating to the skin and unsafe to drink since 2014. Williamson trekked 14 hours on a packed bus, with no sleep, to remind Washington of what’s happening in a poor, embattled, industrial town nearly 75 miles north of Detroit.

"Not only do we feel like the Republicans hate us, but now that the Democrats don’t care either," Williams, 62, told The Huffington Post. "We just need something tangible to make us believe that politicians care about us. The wards in Flint haven’t seen any of this federal aid, but we do all the tax paying and all the dying.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Williamson is correct in her assessment that neither party really cares about the horrific health damage done to the people of Flint, and beyond, due to the poisoning of American's water.

And the problem is, even if some state or Federal agency is able to cough up the funds in order to treat the lead poisoning by chelation therapy, or intravenous vitamin C therapy, the damage done to the brains of the kids who have been poisoned is irreversible.

Everyone who signed off on this atrocity should resign their jobs en masse, be tried by a jury of their peers, convicted for reckless public endangerment, and serve hard time in prison.

Unfortunately, setting a very ugly example of what happens to people who do this the only way in which to prevent such morally vile actions from happening in the future.

BOARD OF ELECTIONS DECLARES CRUZ 'NATURAL-BORN CITIZEN'

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is a “natural born citizen” according to the Illinois Board of Elections.

The state’s BOE ruled that Cruz met the citizenship criteria to appear on the state’s primary ballot.

Two state residents, William Graham and Lawrence Joyce, challenged Cruz’s eligibility with the board, claiming his name should not appear on the March 15 primary ballot because his candidacy did not comply with Article II of the U.S. Constitution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Constitution, schmonstitution; we gotta use Cruz to get rid of Trump, so Cruz can lose to Hillary. Got the plan yet?"

Note they did not declare Cruz eligible to be President, only to be on their ballot.

DOCUMENTS REVEAL DRUG FIRMS’ SCHEMES TO MAXIMIZE PROFITS ON CANCER, AIDS AND HEART DRUGS

Two drugmakers have made a practice of buying and then dramatically hiking the prices of low-cost drugs given to patients with life-threatening conditions including heart disease, AIDS and cancer, according to excerpts from thousands of documents released by federal lawmakers.

A congressional review of more than 300,000 pages from Turing Pharmaceuticals and Valeant Pharmaceuticals reveals how executives planned to maximize profits while fending off negative publicity over the price hikes.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland) released the information Tuesday ahead of a hearing Thursday to examine exorbitant price spikes. Cummings has used his position atop the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to investigate several companies that have bought previously low-cost drugs and jacked up their prices many times over.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last statement is pure and utter bovine excrement.

And please; do not expect Congress to actually DO anything about this issue, because their campaign contributions depend so heavily on healthy contributions from the medical/pharmaceutical industrial complex.

This is sound and fury for public consumption, but expect absolutely zero progress in the area of pharmaceutical companies gouging the public with their prices.

And remember; it is entirely possible that your primary care physician is taking kickbacks for prescribing a specific drug for you, particularly if it is an "off book" prescription.

Pfizer, the world's largest pharmaceutical company, pleaded guilty yesterday and agreed to pay $430 million to resolve criminal and civil charges that it paid doctors to prescribe its epilepsy drug, Neurontin, to patients with ailments that the drug was not federally approved to treat.

I did, personally, get caught up in that last one.

So at this point in my life, I have no difficulty asking a physician if they are being compensated by the drug company which manufactures any medication they are prescribing.

This is a reasonable question, given the current state of health care in this country.

Cruz’s campaign chair quits Washington House after friends reveal he lied about military service

A republican lawmaker has resigned from the Washington state legislature and quit his role as Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign chair over accusations that he exaggerated his military service record.

State Rep. Graham Hunt (R-Orting) stepped down Tuesday due to media coverage of what he described as “inconsistencies in the records of my military service,” reported The Seattle Times.

Hunt resigned, effective immediately, after meeting with other lawmakers to address reports that he was unable or unwilling to provide military service records to prove he served in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan or won three medals he listed on his official biography.

Internet In an Uproar Over Trademark Regulation as Fine Brothers Surrender

Today, of course, the judicial system that has evolved from English common law is celebrated as a mighty achievement of modern civilization. Certainly, in the US, the six million individuals suffering from varying degrees of incarceration – the most anywhere in the world – might differ.

The US in particular has perfected a system of "justice" in which prisoners often find themselves incarcerated in penal institutions operated by for-profit private entities. These entities, in fact, may have contracts with the municipality that demands the town, city or state maintain prisons at a certain level of population.

Perhaps this explains why in the US especially there are so many miscarriages of justice and why DNA testing has led to the release of so many prisoners over the past decade. There have been notable releases of prisoners from death row, especially.

Secretary of Defense Announces How He'll Waste $582 Billion

Carter highlighted projects inside the “Strategic Capabilities Office, or SCO for short,” a murky and extremely wasteful corner of the Pentagon where some of our dumbest, most-likely-to-fail projects are born (and often die, at great expense):

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This penchant for waste from the DOD is another very intense reason why the US government should not at all be looking at going to war with Russia and/or China.

In Russia and China, when companies make weapons or planes or ships for either country, when these items are field deployed, they operate as advertised, or better, by the companies which make them.

Unfortunately, in the US, due to the incestuous relationship between weapons makers and Congressional representatives who approve of contracts (and are, I imagine, covertly, rewarded by those weapons makers for those contracts), when items are field deployed, they are generally behind schedule, over budget, and do not at all perform as advertised.

Just think about the F-35, for Pete's sake; I rest my case!!!

Trump Just Dropped a BOMBSHELL About the Iowa Caucus! (WOW)

Dr. Ben Carson has called into question the unethical moves by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his staff which purposefully told Iowa Caucus attendees that Carson was dropping out.

It was a purposeful lie at a key moment during the Caucus, which pushed Cruz over the top. Cruz has since apologized for his action.

Conservative businessman Donald J. Trump, who came in 2nd place even after skipping the Iowa debate, just went on Twitter and dropped a bombshell: It’s time to cancel the Iowa Caucus results!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This idea has merit, if for no other reason than the Iowa Democratic chair, with 5% of the votes missing, declared Hillary's .4% "victory" over Bernie Sanders the final official result.

FEDS HELPED HIDE INVESTIGATION INTO BIG BANK’S MONEY LAUNDERING FOR DRUG CARTELS

A federal judge ruled last week that the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) will be forced to share a report on its business practices with the public — a decision both the bank and the Department of Justice (DOJ) fought in court to prevent. The report is based on the findings of an ongoing government audit of the bank initiated amid revelations in 2012, that it laundered money for drug cartels and terrorist organizations.

When HSBC’s sordid dealings were discovered in 2012, the DOJ declined to press charges, arguing the bank was too important to prosecute. As the Guardian reported at the time, Assistant Attorney General Larry Breuer argued “the Justice Department had looked at the ‘collateral consequences’ to prosecuting the HSBC or taking away its US banking license. Such a move could have cost thousands of jobs, he said.”

New Law In London Would Fine Homeless £1,000 For Sleeping Outside Or “Loitering”

By John Vibes

The homeless people in Hackney, London are facing expulsion from the street due to a new law will allow the police to give out fines and other legal penalties to homeless people who are found loitering, begging and sleeping in commercial places.

This “Public Space Protection Order” which was introduced by the council of Hackney will place a fine of £1000 on homeless activities. The order has been met with numerous criticisms, with many pointing out that the new laws effectively outlaw homelessness...

Webmaster addition: If the homeless had £1,000 they would not be sleeping in the streets! So what will happen is they will be arrested and thrown in prison for not paying thew fine ... which gives them a bed, a roof, and three meals a day. So why not just give the homeless a bed, a roof, and three meals a day and save all the legal costs?

Hillary Clinton likes to extol her foreign policy credentials, particularly her experience as secretary of state. She attaches herself to Barack Obama’s coattails, pledging to continue his policies. But she is even more hawkish than the president.

Like Obama, Clinton touts American exceptionalism, the notion that the United States is better than any other country. In his State of the Union addresses, Obama has proclaimed America “exceptional” and said the U.S. must “lead the world.” Clinton wrote in her book “Hard Choices” that “America remains the ‘indispensable nation.’ ”

Iowa's nightmare revisited: Was correct winner called?

It's Iowa's nightmare scenario revisited: An extraordinarily close count in the Iowa caucuses — and reports of chaos in precincts, website glitches and coin flips to decide county delegates — are raising questions about accuracy of the count and winner.

This time it's the Democrats, not the Republicans.

Even as Hillary Clinton trumpeted her Iowa win in New Hampshire on Tuesday, aides for Bernie Sanders said the eyelash-thin margin raised questions and called for a review. The chairwoman of the Iowa Democratic Party rejected that notion, saying the results are final.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

5% of the vote missing, and the chairwoman of the Iowa Democrats declares Hillary's .2% victory final?

We all know Hillary is a totally ruthless human being who cares not for the law, the Constitution, or the people, but it says something about the American charcter that she has attracted so many supporters who know exactly what Hillary is and has done, but don't care, so long as they get a "Woman in the White House!"

A man representing himself in a Maryland court was shocked with 50,000 volts of electricity by the judge because he continued to speak when the judge ordered him to stop. Judge Robert Nalley pleaded guilty on Monday to depriving the defendant of his civil rights. The charge stems from an encounter between the judge and victim Delvon King in July of 2014, when King was appearing before Judge Nalley to face gun charges. King had a shocker anklet attached to him, which was supposed to be used in case of an emergency situation, or if King were to attempt to escape or hurt anyone.

It is also significant that Rubio did not have the best parent models in growing up in Florida and Las Vegas. His Cuban parents, according to GOP insiders, did not emigrate from Cuba to escape Fidel Castro and Communism — they left Cuba for America in 1956 — but were Havana casino workers employed by Jewish mob boss Meyer Lansky and brought to Florida. From Miami, they eventually left for Las Vegas to work in mob-owned casino hotels. Rubio’s father, Mario Rubio Reina, worked as a bartender in Las Vegas casinos while his mother, Oriales Rubio, was a hotel maid. Rubio has falsely claimed that his parents fled Castro and Communism. In 1956, the U.S.-supported fascist dictator, Fulgencio Batista, was fully in control of Cuba.

It made a difference: Six months after the water source switch, the local GM plant stopped using Flint water because it was so corrosive, it was harmful to their engine parts.

Donald Trump accuses Ted Cruz of 'illegally stealing' Iowa caucus

Donald Trump has accused Ted Cruz, his main rival in the Republican nomination contest, of “illegally” stealing the Iowa caucus.

The tweet, which appeared on the tycoon’s official Twitter page, said: “Ted Cruz didn’t win Iowa, he illegally stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong any why he got more votes than anticipated. Bad!”

The Texas maverick Ted Cruz dealt Mr Trump’s campaign a blow on Monday in a surprise victory over his Republican rival – many had expected the billionaire former Apprentice star to come out on top.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The disparity between the polls and the results tells us rigging was going on (and other instances of fraud were found in Iowa, including one caught on C-SPAN's cameras). This election is already so crooked they have to screw those ballots into the ballot boxes!

Ted Cruz's campaign did start a hoax rumor that Ben Carson was dropping out of the race, but the lower-than-expected numbers for Trump with the higher-than-expected results for both Cruz and Rubio may not be the work of Cruz or Rubio.

Recall the Watergate scandal from 1972-74? It was eventually revealed that Richard Nixon's CREEP (Committee to RE Elect the President) sabotaged the campaigns of Democrats who might be able to beat Nixon, leaving Nixon to run against George McGovern, whom Nixon trounced in a record landslide vote.

The young Hillary Rodham was on the Watergate investigation committee (later dismissed without a good recommendation for lying and dishonesty) where she no doubt received a thorough education in just how Nixon operated!

So, today, 2016... Hillary does not want to run against Trump. Trump will win. Hillary WANTS to run against Ted Cruz because she knows she can steamroller all over him, if for no other reason than reminding everyone that Cruz was born in Canada and therefor is ineligible to serve as President under the Constitution.

I would not rule Hillary and her friends at Microsoft as suspects just yet!

“How was your water? Was it clean?” Gov Snyder Chased Out Of Restaurant By Angry Residents

By John Vibes

Governor Rick Snyder is surely one of the most hated people in Flint, if not the entire state of Michigan, and it is a surprise that he can actually go out anywhere in public without being heckled. In fact, there was just an incident reported last week where he was chased out of a restaurant with residents who were angry about the part he played in the city’s current water crisis.

At the Old Town Tavern on Liberty Street, which is just down the street from the governor’s new condo, Snyder was unable to finish his meal because of his public infamy.

According to Ann Arbor resident, Laura Tanner, someone in the restaurant yelled “Snyder, you f*** up!” which alerted everyone else in the bar that the governor was there...

Europe in difficult position due to poor protection of outer boundaries — German official

According to the official, the German government is obliged to cut refugee flows under the German constitution. If it fails, the authorities will face a lawsuit at the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany. About 1.1 million asylum seekers arrived in Germany in 2015... Earlier, Udo Di Fabio, a former judge of the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany, concluded that Berlin was violating constitutional norms by allowing unlimited numbers of refugees to enter the country. According to him, the best thing under the current circumstances would be to shut the borders legally and restrict the number of migrants. Seehofer said the global community currently has to address such tasks as the migration crisis and counteraction to terrorism. "I am convinced that these challenges require joint action.

Washington has ‘no comment’ on Russia’s decision to blacklist five Americans

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday five Americans linked to the US law enforcement system have been barred from entry. The move comes in retaliation for the recent US expansion of the so-called Magnitsky list of sanctions against Russian officials. The Russian blacklist includes former US attorney general Alberto Gonzales, former US undersecretary of defense Douglas Feith, former senior counsel at the CIA John Rizzo, former assistant attorney general Jay Scott Bybee and former general counsel of the department of defense William James Haynes II. Russia’s Foreign Ministry said the expansion of the Magnitsky list that has been used for "groundless accusations against Russian officials" is dealing another blow to bilateral ties.

Senior Russian legislator: US uses UN, Security Council for propaganda

"The United Nations and the UN Security Council still remain optional agencies in the US scheme of things. The US turns to them exclusively in cases when they can be used for propaganda purposes," Klishas wrote in his blog on the official website of the upper house of parliament. "Possibly, the United States may soon start bombing other counties and will not even bother to explain the reasons behind its actions or provide some grounds for its own policies," Klishas said. He also pointed to the Western countries’ refusal to provide any proof of their speculations as a new trend in public behavior. "Denying for no apparent reason the hard facts, such as oil caravans towards Turkey from Syria or refusing to provide any proof to back up their speculations is a new style of civilized Western countries’ policies in communicating with the mass media, the public in their countries and the whole world," he said.

Foreigners leaving government is a negative signal for Poroshenko from West — expert

The decision of Ukraine’s Minister of Economy and Trade Aivaras Abromavicius to leave his post is a sign of a conflict with Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko, and a signal from the West about the deterioration of relations, Andrei Zolotarev head of the Kiev-based analytical Third Sector Centre, said Wednesday... The Ukrainian government has several foreign nationals holding the posts of ministers. Before his appointment, Abromavicius was a Lithuanian businessman. Ukraine’s Minister of Healthcare Alexander Kvitashvili is from Georgia, who had also tried to resign earlier, but the Verkhovna Rada did not support his decision. American-born Natalie Jaresko holds the post of Ukraine's Minister of Finance.
"Today I have decided to resign from the post due to a sharp activation of blocking important systemic reforms in the country," Abromavicius said at a press conference in Kiev. http://tass.ru/en/world/854174

Google calls out Comodo's Chromodo Chrome-knockoff as insecure crapware

Google security boffins have thrown the book at Comodo for turning off Chrome security.

As explained in this advisory today, users who install Comodo Internet Security may not realize that their Chrome installation is replaced with Comodo's own browser, Chromodo.

That little bit of crapware isn't secure at all: it's set as the default browser, and "all shortcuts are replaced with Chromodo links and all settings, cookies, etc are imported from Chrome. They also hijack DNS settings, among other shady practices," Google's Tavis Ormandy notes.
