DNC turns up music to drown out Kaine dissenters

It was a battle of volume on the floor of the Democratic National Convention this afternoon.

As Tim Kaine’s name was put into nomination, opponents began chanting “roll call vote” as a way to stymie the process.

In reaction, CNN reports, DNC organizers simply cranked up the music to drown out the dissenters.

Box Office: Dinesh D'Souza's 'Hillary's America' Becomes Top Grossing Doc of 2016

The decision to time the opening of the scathing takedown of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to the Republican and Democratic political conventions seems to be paying off.

Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza has added another win: Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party has quickly become the top-grossing documentary of the year to date at the U.S. box office, amassing $5.2 million in its first dozen days.

WikiLeaks releases hacked DNC voicemails

Wikileaks put up a page containing 29 mp3 files of calls, identified by phone number, running approximately 14 minutes combined.

None of the messages listened to by The Washington Times contained anything immediately obvious as embarrassing or incriminating.

However, the very fact the DNC voicemail system has been hacked is embarrassing and could augur the release of far more damaging material later.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The voicemails seem to be from just one phone, used by a person named "Andrew."

Assange was promising something that could lead to an indictment, but this is not it.

What is going on? Did someone meet Assange's price to keep the rest of the leaked material hidden?

Is Europe Doomed By Vassalage To Washington? — Paul Craig Roberts

World War II resulted in Europe being conquered, not by Berlin but by Washington.

The conquest was certain but not all at once. Washington’s conquest of Europe resulted from the Marshall Plan, from fears of Stalin’s Red Army that caused Europe to rely on Washington’s protection and to subordinate Europe’s militaries to Washington in NATO, from the replacement of the British pound as world reserve currency with the US dollar, and from the long process of the subordination of the sovereignty of individual European countries to the European Union, a CIA initiative implemented by Washington in order to control all of Europe by controlling only one unaccountable government.

With few exceptions, principally the UK, membership in the EU also meant loss of financial independence. As only the European Central Bank, an EU institution, can create euros, those countries so foolish as to accept the euro as their currency no longer have the power to create their own money in order to finance budget deficits.

A Return to the Madness of: M.A.D.

By Brett Redmayne-Titley

One generation later, madmen have returned. They bring with them the madness of … M.A.D.

Again, absolutely all politics are reduced to White or Black. There is no gray. All peoples of our world again exist within a fateful clash between only two distinct ideologies, best summed-up as; Good vs. Evil. Right vs. Wrong. Life or… death?

A mere generation ago the colors of worldwide military polarization were then thrust upon the innocent by mad politicians with similar delusions of empire who, then, portrayed their geo-political expansionism in the easily understood colors of Red vs. Blue: East vs. West. The Cold War. The once Soviet empire vs. the ever-since burgeoning US contra-empire. The multitude of issues separating the two supposedly separate doctrines of Red or Blue ultimately distilled into one single, horrific doctrine of military nuclear madness that all on earth finally, by the necessity of self-preservation, truly understood...

FLASHBACK - OH RAPTURE!

One of the major problems America faces is a large population of religious fundamentalists who have become as fanatical in their own way as any Middle Eastern Ayatollah. At present, they are caught up in their own version of the myth of the end of the world, and hope that by working to bring it about, they'll get to sit at the right hand of their diety and to hell with everyone else. No doubt fistfights will break out over who gets to sit closest, but that is a subject for another article.

FLASHBACK - The New McCarthyism

Today we are seeing once again the heavy hand of the war profiteers trying to reshape the film industry into a tool to propagandize the public into a high war-fever such that they will gladly trade their own blood for gold to line the pockets of the defense establishment. And those individuals who have the courage to speak out are attacked, and once again they are smeared to silence them. In the 1940s it was "Communist", today it is "Anti-Semite", but aside from the particular label used, the methods, goals, and morality are little changed from the days of Joseph McCarthy.

If there is a difference today it is that the American people are better educated. No longer dependent on the state schools, or controlled media, the public understands the tactics used to silence those who speak out. As a result, those who speak out are more and more not only accorded the sympathetic ear that their message deserves, but the effects of the smearing are far less ruinous than in times past.

Pro-Bush Necons Backing Hillary Clinton: Analyst

Neo-conservatists, who once supported former Republican US President George W. Bush, are now supporting Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, says an analyst.

“The Democratic Party… was greatly concerned about Bernie Sanders at the very beginning of his campaign when he was only polling 6 percent because they knew that Hillary Clinton was a deeply flawed candidate,” Rodney Martin, a former US congressional staffer, told Press TV on Wednesday.

Zionism Goes from Bad to Worse, Taking Judaism with It – An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

Zionism’s range of influence is shrinking. One can see this progression worldwide. At a popular level the Israelis have lost control of the historical storyline of Israel-Palestine. They may teach their own citizens their version of the story, the one wherein the Jews have a divine and/or historical right to all of Palestine’s territory. But beyond their fellow Zionists and the loony Christian right, no one else believes this story. Significantly, an increasing number of Jews no longer accept it either.

Hillary’s Crocodile Tears in Connecticut

After President Nixon’s resignation, a young lawyer, who shared an office with Hillary, confided in me that he was dismayed by her erroneous legal opinions and efforts to deny Nixon representation by counsel—as well as an unwillingness to investigate Nixon. In my diary of August 12, 1974 I noted the following:

John Labovitz apologized to me for the fact that months ago he and Hillary had lied to me [to conceal rules changes and dilatory tactics]. Labovitz said, ‘That came from Yale.’ I said, ‘You mean Burke Marshall’ [Senator Ted Kennedy’s chief political strategist, with whom Hillary regularly consulted in violation of House rules.] Labovitz said, ‘Yes.’ His apology was significant to me, not because it was a revelation but because of his contrition.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The Killings of Tony Blair (George Galloway's new film released)

From Craig Murray, former British ambassador to the Uzbekistan dictatorship:

Tonight I am appearing at a panel discussion following the screening of the long-awaited film by George Galloway, The Killings of Tony Blair. I shall have the dubious pleasure of debating with John McTernan, who has never lacked brass neck but does deserve some credit for appearing to represent the forces of darkness before what I imagine will be a very hostile audience. The other panel members are Michael Mansfield and Lauren Booth.

The film has been predictably lambasted by the mainstream media. But it does include some very essential first hand evidence – myself apart, two other British Ambassadors tell what they themselves witnessed, as do Cabinet members. Noam Chomsky adds some important perceptions. This cannot just be dismissed by cries of “Oh look! George Galloway’s in a hat!! Remember when he was on Big Brother!!” The mainstream media’s response to this film has been unanimously puerile.

The Blair-loving Guardian gave the film two stars and called it “sanctimonious”. If one cannot express moral condemnation of a man who forced through an aggressive war, directly killing hundreds of thousands and destabilising both the Middle East and communities in Europe, and who then went on to make multiple millions of pounds promoting vicious dictatorships, then are we to suspend the very idea of ethics itself?

Federal Judge Rules Hidden Microphones in Public Do Not Violate Constitution

By Derrick Broze

A federal judge has ruled that law enforcement may continue to place recording devices in public place because it does not violate the constitutional guarantee against warrantless searches and privacy protections.

On Friday July 22, U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton issued a 17-page ruling which found the practice of placing recording devices on the steps of courthouses in Oakland and Martinez, California to be “unsettling,” but not in violation of the Fourth Amendment. The four defendants in the federal criminal fraud case are accused of rigging real estate bids throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties...

It’s been over a week since the Turkish coup has taken place and still no one definitively knows what happened, who was behind it, and who was originally meant to benefit. It is rather obvious now that, since the coup did not succeed, Erdogan will find himself in a much safer position domestically than before it took place by virtue of the massive governmental and military purge that has taken place in its aftermath. Internationally, however, is another question...

The Troubling Friendship of Hillary Clinton and George W. Bush

A photo of Hillary Clinton and George W. Bush smiling in embrace recently surfaced at former first lady Nancy Reagan’s funeral. The image gives light to the intimate relationship between the Bush and Clinton families—particularly that of Hillary and George W.

In the most recent Democratic town hall on MSNBC, Ms. Clinton told Chris Matthews her vote for the Iraq War—a manifestation of the Bush administration—was born from her agreement with George W. Bush to secure $20 billion toward rebuilding New York City after 9/11.

Protesters Rage Against the DNC: “Hillary Didn’t Get the Nomination. The Nomination Was Stolen”

Corruption is officially “in” at the DNC as Hillary Clinton has secured her place on the Democratic party ticket, despite a huge wave of discontent at the convention among dissatisfied and outraged Bernie delegates and supporters.

For many, Bernie Sanders put the final nail in the coffin of any remaining illusions anyone should have about whether or not this is a “democratic” society. As a gesture towards his ‘unity’ deal with Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders moved to suspend the convention rules and “select” Hillary on the basis of “acclamation” – in other words, a voice vote. For someone who drew a huge following vehemently campaigning against her, Bernie gone well out of his way to endorse and praise Hillary, but many of his followers aren’t about to follow him that far.

Regardless, it is now officially Hillary on the ballot in November, and things have never seemed more dangerous for this country.

Russia beefs up military on southwestern flank as NATO approaches

Russia has strengthened its southwestern flank as NATO builds up its military presence and Ukraine remains unstable, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Wednesday in remarks the United States called contrary to efforts to lower tensions.

Moscow has deployed more air defense systems in the southwest and has also deployed a "self-sufficient" contingent of troops in Crimea, Shoigu told a meeting at the Defence Ministry broadcast on state television.

"Since 2013 ... we have formed four divisions, nine brigades and 22 regiments," he said. "They include two missile brigades armed with Iskander missile complexes, which has allowed to boost fire power to destroy the potential adversary."

Shoigu said "terrorist" groups were also active in the North Caucasus.

“Learn to live with it”: Nice and the Ever-Rising Cost of Multiculturalism

While images of dead children are evidently fair game for Marxist propaganda, a different set of rules appears to be in operation if the dead children in question are the undeniable victims of the hybridized interests of foreigners and the Left. Social media was awash almost immediately on the night of the 14th with pleas to delete images from Nice and ‘respect victims’ privacy,’ often from the kind of ‘refugees welcome’ types who wave posters of beached African corpses at candle-lit rallies. Our enemies do not want the kind of social action that might be provoked by the image of our young French child, and we can thus be sure that it will rarely feature in mainstream press coverage, and certainly never ‘go viral’ like that of the young Arab.

Strange rift has Michigan delegates walking out on Bernie Sanders' DNC speech

But then the Hillary Clinton supporters in the Michigan delegation wouldn't accept or wave the Sanders signs. And even after he said, "Hillary Clinton must become the next president of the United States," nearly half of the state delegation walked out before he was done with his speech.

"I was so mad," Dunham said.

The Michigan primary was a close race, with Sanders winning by a little more than 1 percent. Some tensions have not cooled.

And after Monday night, it appears some new ones have emerged.

Donald Trump Calls on Russia to Find Hillary Clinton’s Missing Emails

DORAL, Fla. — Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he hoped Russia had hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, essentially encouraging an adversarial foreign power to cyberspy on a secretary of state’s correspondence.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said, staring directly into the cameras during a news conference. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

DORAL, Fla. — Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he hoped Russia had hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, essentially encouraging an adversarial foreign power to cyberspy on a secretary of state’s correspondence.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said, staring directly into the cameras during a news conference. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

The Clinton campaign immediately accused Mr. Trump of both encouraging Russian espionage against the United States and meddling in domestic politics.

“This has to be the first time that a major presidential candidate has actively encouraged a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent,” said Jake Sullivan, Mrs. Clinton’s chief foreign policy adviser. “This has gone from being a matter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue.”

Germany May Use Internal Army to Combat Terrorism As Europeans Told to “Expect Attacks” On a Daily Basis, by Mac Slavo

Mass murder and shocking acts of terrorism have become commonplace – and are happening on a daily basis now. The EU is facing an all-out war against foreign invaders who are picking off random targets and fueling chaos, and they are ready to institute a police state in desperate attempt to control it.

Things are getting quite serious.

As RT reported:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing European countries should be doing, in a concerted way, and with one very loud voice, is telling the US government that it MUST stop these horrific wars of conquest which are driving this massive influx of refugees in the first place.

And yes, these attacks are horrific and repugnant; but they are so random as to probably not be able to be controlled by ramping up a police state and martial law.

My answer to the question of "cui bono?", meaning, who benefits, who can effectively bend the narrative to fit their desired outcome, is very clear to me.

Martial law, as a way of controlling even the good, decent people in a country, is seen as very attractive by some leaders who know that their present and future programs will not be popular with the people who elected them.

And what better way to suppress domestic unrest at those policies than prevent the free and honest discussion of those policies ideas, or - horror of horrors - demonstrate peacefully against them?!?

These terroristic acts are just the excuse to invoke martial law; but the reason for the problem in the first place is the ham-fisted, pig-headed quality of American foreign policy, the authors of which never see a war they don't want to start in order to control resources to which they have no moral right.

Man Who Filmed Eric Garner’s Death Sues NYC for $10,000,000

Ramsey Orta, who recorded Eric Garner’s fatal encounter with police officers in New York City’s Staten Island borough, claims that he was arrested on trumped-up charges in retaliation for the viral video.

Ramsey Orta, the New York City man who filmed Eric Garner’s death, recently accepted a plea deal on weapons and drug charges and is likely to spend the next four years in prison.

Now, the New York Post reports, Orta is suing the city for $10 million. He says that he was arrested on trumped-up charges in retaliation for recording the controversial arrest that sparked protests.

“Despite the murder of Eric Garner by the NYPD, Ramsey Orta, who filmed the incident, is the only person present at the incident who is going to prison because the NYPD engaged in smear tactics, in cooperation with the news media, and prepared a tactical plan to set him up for retaliatory arrests,” the lawsuit reads.

MH17 Two Years On: What Really Happened and Why?

More than any other incident, this one was flushed out first through public relations channels, and then second through official government bodies. From the onset the West took its position by claiming it had “proof” that ‘Russian-backed rebels’ were responsible for shooting down the passenger airliner. Immediately after the incident took place, the western government-media complex insisted that the murder weapon was a Russian-made BUK Surface to Air Missile system.

Western mainstream media outlets wasted no time in disseminating this government-issued conspiracy theory, backed-up by a number of other clams of “evidence” coming out of the Washington-backed regime in Kiev. At the time, US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed to have a “mountain of evidence” convicting ‘pro-Russian separatists’ and Moscow. Unfortunately, Kerry’s mountain was no more than a mole hill. Nearly all of those claims have since been debunked and exposed as fraudulent – but from a public opinion perspective, the damage was already done.

Bill Clinton ‘Unaware’ Brother-In-Law on Board of Haitian Gold Mine that Landed Rare Permit

New reporting by the Washington Post finds a gold mine in Haiti. Or, at least, confirms previous reporting from Breitbart News about a gold mining contract in that troubled country.

In an expose about the controversial Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, the newspaper’s Kevin Sullivan and Rosalind S. Helderman write that:

Controversy surrounding the Clintons only deepened with the recent revelation, contained in an upcoming book by Peter Schweizer, that Tony Rodham — Hillary Clinton’s younger brother — serves on the advisory board of a U.S.-based company that in 2012 won one of Haiti’s first two gold-mining permits in 50 years. After objection from the Haitian senate, the permits have been placed on hold.

“Two for the Price of One”: Democrats Nominate Clinton Crime Family for a Second Co-Presidency

Bill Clinton once bragged about electing him president meant getting “two for the price of one.”

Here we go again. Exposed electoral rigging along with unelected party insider super-delegates handed the Clinton crime family another chance for the nation’s highest office.

Will November electoral rigging assure it, letting both legally challenged Clintons lead America – perhaps into the abyss if occurs?

Sanders capped his sellout to everything he campaigned against, urging Hillary be nominated by acclamation. In disgust, over 500 of his delegates walked out.

He transformed himself into Hillary’s puppet, urging his followers to betray their principles – selling out to wealth and power like all the rest.

All-out activism against a corrupted system is crucial.

The alternative is a nation more unsafe and unfit to live in than ever, Wall Street and war-profiteers more greatly empowered, and the unthinkable risk of WW III.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A Hillary Presidency will guarantee more wars; the return of the draft, for both our young men and young women; more offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs; more collapsed infrastructure; and far more criminal corruption of the US government.

Mike is absolutely correct when he mentions that a Trump victory has to be a landslide to prevent this, because of voter nullification, through vote machine rigging; and Hillary's people are expert at this (Just look at how Sanders got creamed in California, when he actually won the California primary!)

So this election has to go all the way, in the most peaceful, and legal way possible, to insure a Trump victory.

In Latest Political "Coup", Catalan Parliament Votes To Secede From Spain

In the aftermath of last month's Brexit vote, there was an outpouring of concern in Europe that the British decision would embolden similar separatist movements across the continent. Earlier Wednesday, this is precisely what happened when Catalan nationalists voted to approve a plan to secede from Spain, defying the nation’s Constitutional Court and challenging acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who is currently in political limbo as he struggles to form a government.

The decision was approved by 72 regional MPs out of 135. Ten MPs from the CSP group linked to Podemos, Partido Popular and Ciudadanos walked out of the assembly and the Socialists did not vote. A recent poll shows that 48% of the Catalan population currently supports independence compared with 43% against it.

VIETNAM VET SHOT FOR BEING A TRUMP SUPPORTER

A political discussion at a bar in Cleveland ended with a Vietnam vet being shot in the leg because of his support for Donald Trump.

60-year-old Paul Jones, Jr. was having a conversation with a friend at Winston’s Place near E. 131st Street and Miles Avenue on Monday evening.

A man sitting nearby overheard the chat and immediately became aggressive.

“He butted in the conversation,” Jones told WEWS from his hospital bed. “The conversation wasn’t directed at him or to him.”

The man continued to get more irate, going to his car to retrieve a gun before he returned and shot Jones in the thigh.

The shooter fled the scene and detectives are still searching for him.

IMF and China Accelerate Creation of New Global Reserve Currency

So after the G20 meeting on July 25, the deputy director of the People’s Bank of China’s (PBOC) International Office Zhou Juan immediately countered the concern about a lack of market demand. He said an international development organization like the Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank (AIIB) could issue SDR bonds in China as late as August, according to Chinese newspaper Caixin.

Zhu echoed both Ocampo and the IMF and said that “SDR-denominated bonds should be appealing to official investors at their preliminary stage because they can provide diversified investment products and reduce exchange rate and interest rate risks.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could well undermine the petrodollar for good; is it no wonder that the US government is threatening war against China in the South China Seas to prevent a rise in the use of this financial instrument, as well as the rise of the gold-backed yuan, which is not convertible to US dollars?!?

Recep Tayyip Erdogan is an autocrat who might even better be described as a megalomaniac driven to promote policies that are both self-serving and erratic that rely on incendiary populist appeals to maintain power. He heads an increasingly corrupt regime and has ruthlessly sacrificed his own people to his own ambition, effectively declaring war on the Kurdish minority living in Turkey and secretly dealing with and even supporting terrorists while also, ironically, opening the door to a new wave of terror within Turkey itself. Erdogan has personally embroiled his country in an incomprehensible and ultimately disastrous fashion in neighboring Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF NATO and the US government were collectively honest, now would be the time to re-assess their collective and individual relationship with Erdogan's Turkey.

Where the hell does a megalomaniacal, hubristically Stallinesque dictator, torturing his own people for confessions having people shunned and created "show trials", fit into the concept of free democracies mutually assisting each other in economy and defense?!?

The short, logical answer is, nowhere.

But unfortunately, because of the depth and breadth of military investment and deployment in Turkey, the US government and NATO have had their outreach to Erdogan bite them, collectively, in a very sensitive portion of the human anatomy, and they are stuck in a relationship they cannot very easily get out of.

Coups are something inside/outside forces have to get right, otherwise, there is hell to pay.

And IF Erdogan's accusations are true, the US and NATO have some 'splaining to do; of course, they will never acknowledge their complicity in such an activity.

I am deeply concerned about the lockdown at Incerlik (with 2700 NATO personnel, 1500 of whom are American), and the 51 nuclear bombs pre-positioned there.

To begin to get any semblance of normalcy back into the Turkish/NATO/US government relationship involves the extradition of the US Resident, Imam Gulen, who Erdogan accuses of having fomented the coup, and demands that Gulen to be sent back to Istanbul.

The US government cannot do this, because Gulen has intensive knowledge about certain US governmental spy agencies in Turkey.

In this case, I would imagine that the US Administration is contemplating some kind of extrajudicial assassination of Gulen, then return him to Turkey in a casket.

After all, he would have been returned, just as Erdogan demanded; just returned dead.

We would have to see where things went from there, but unfortunately, the US government doesn't appear to have many other options for getting out of this mess with Turkey.

All Wars Are Bankers’ Wars: Horrible to Watch How False French World War Begins

The horrible murder of Father Jacques Hamel in Rouen France by “ISIS soldiers” has further inflamed French anger against radical Islam and fundamentalism.

This is how wars begin.

In this case, France – and the West generally – are being whipped up against 1.5 billion Muslims around the world.

Additionally, as we pointed out recently HERE, Islamic Turkey has joined forces with Russian, creating the prospect of an even bigger world war.

Criticism of Hillary’s Sociopathic Behavior Has Nothing to Do With Being Female

We pointed out yesterday a number of articles that question why she is “hated” and then answer in generalities to try to defuse the issue.

WHILE VETS WERE DYING, THE VA SPENT $20 MILLION ON ART

It’s been over two years since the Veteran’s Affairs scandal first broke, when whistleblowers revealed that the agency in charge of providing medical treatment to our veterans was grossly callous, negligent, and inefficient. Countless veterans were dying while waiting for treatments, and VA workers were covering it up. And unfortunately, the VA is still just as bad at treating our veterans, if not worse, than it was in 2014.

Two years after this scandal first broke however, we’re still learning about some of the terrible things that the VA did while their patients were waiting to be treated. Recently it’s been discovered that throughout the scandal, instead of spending money on the vets, they were buying art.

According to a joint investigation by COX Media Washington, D.C. and OpenTheBooks.com, the VA spent $20 million on various art fixtures. “The VA bought Christmas trees priced like cars and sculptures that cost more than five-bedroom homes.”

Hillary Clinton: Class President of A Failed Generation

The baby boom generation which started with so much promise when it came of age in the 1960s has ended up a colossal failure. It has turned America into a bloody imperial hegemon aboard and a bankrupt Spy State at home where financialization and the 1% thrive, half the population lives off the state and real main street prosperity has virtually disappeared from the land.

Quite a deplorable legacy, that. And all the while Hillary has been our class president. God help the world if she becomes our nation’s President. She has betrayed all that was right about the baby boomers in the 1960s; and has embraced all the wrong they did during their subsequent years in power.

PM: Turkey ‘Heartbroken’ by US Handling of Gulen Extradition

Speaking today in an interview on his country’s requests for the US to extradite cleric Fethullah Gulen, Prime Minister Binali Yildrim claimed he was “heartbroken” by the US reaction to the request, saying he didn’t understand why the US didn’t immediately send Gulen on request.

Yildrim insisted that the evidence was “crystal clear” that Gulen was behind the coup, and said the longstanding US-Turkey alliance should trump “procedural matters” like having actual extradition hearings within the US about whether or not to send Gulen to Turkey.

Turkey reportedly filed some “evidence” along with their request to the US, though US officials have since insisted they want conclusive evidence of Gulen’s guilt before they are willing to extradite him. Turkish officials don’t appear to have been forthcoming, instead just warning bilateral relations are at risk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Turkey holds all the cards on this one; they have locked down the NATO base at Incerlik, which holds 2700 NATO troops ( 1500 of which are Americans) and 51 nuclear bombs.

This situation is not going to resolve itself, and the US government understands that without this extradition, the situation at Incerlik will remain frozen.

But because they cannot extradite Gulen alive, they will have to find the means of "terminating him with extreme prejudice." He may get "suicided", or die in a one-car accident; assassinations engineered to not look like assassinations, are quite frequently done by the US government.

It appears to me that the only way Erdogan gets Gulen back is in an aluminum coffin, if at all.

One of the unresolved questions involves allegations that the Finders are somehow linked to the Central Intelligence Agency. Customs Service documents reveal that in 1987, when Customs agents sought to examine the evidence gathered by Washington, D.C., police, they were told that the Finders investigation "had become a CIA internal matter." The police report on the case had been classified secret. Even now, Tallahassee police complain about the handling of the Finders investigation by D.C. police.

If Russian Intelligence Did Hack the DNC, the NSA Would Know, Snowden Says

Glenn Greenwald told WNYC on Monday, while there may never be conclusive evidence that the Democratic National Committee was hacked by Russian intelligence operatives to extract the trove of embarrassing emails published by WikiLeaks, it would hardly be shocking if that was what happened.

“Governments do spy on each other and do try to influence events in other countries,” Glenn noted. “Certainly the U.S. government has a very long and successful history of doing exactly that.”

Even so, he added, given the ease with which we were misled into war in Iraq by false claims about weapons of mass destruction — and the long history of Russophobia in American politics — it is vital to cast a skeptical eye over whatever evidence is presented to support the claim, made by Hillary Clinton’s aide Robby Mook, that this is all part of a Russian plot to sabotage the Democrats and help Donald Trump win the election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin has absolutely no love of Clinton, due to her warmongering and lying; however, I seriously doubt that he would ever sign off on something so ham-fisted that it could be pointed back at Russian cyber-warfare.

HERE ARE THE NEW TACTICS POLICE ARE PREPARING TO ROLL OUT IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Following the recent events in the United States, which have resulted in armed civilians taking on police officers—namely in Dallas, Baton Rouge, and most recently in Kansas City, Kansas — police forces across the country are set to adjust their strategies and tactics.
An interesting detail to note is that on July 11, 2016 — following the first deadly attacks on police officers that occurred in Dallas — Reuters reported police were set to rethink their tactics in nearly half of America’s 30 largest cities. They evidently didn’t act swiftly enough (a number of deadly attacks followed shortly after). It’s either that or the suggested police tactics were never going to address the root causes of the problem we are facing.

So what kind of changes can we expect to see?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out that Trump has been speaking about "illegal immigrants", which is a problem, rather than minorities per se.

But in saying that the Obama administration has done really nothing substantive to stop police brutality against all of our citizens, the author of this article is absolutely correct.

Ukraine’s finance minister says sees no reason to repay $3 bln debt to Russia

Ukraine sees no reason to repay its three billion U.S. dollar debt to Russia, Ukrainian Finance Minister Alexander Danilyuk said on Tuesday.

"I don’t see why Ukraine should repay this money," he said in an interview with the Espresso television channel.
"It was a political loan we were forced to take," he said, adding that another reason not to repay the debt is the developments around Crimea and Donbass.

In his words, Kiev will use these arguments in its litigation with Russia at London’s High Court.

The current Ukrainian authorities maintain that the loan was a kind of Moscow’s reward to former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich for his refusal to sign the association agreement with the European Union. Back in February, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin said his country’s position at the High Court in London will be that Ukraine’s debt to Russia was "a bribe both in terms of form and in terms of essence."

I

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this lawsuit is successful, Ukraine has to find a way of paying the money back.

If they do not, credit to the country will get frozen.

If unsuccessful, Russia will find asymmetric economic ways of exacting pain from Ukraine that its leadership cannot yet even fathom, perhaps even enough to foment a counter-revolution which puts Ukraine back in Russia's geopolitical orbit.

An international human rights watchdog on Tuesday unveiled new evidence that Security Service of Ukraine's (SBU) is running a secret detention center in the eastern city of Kharkiv.

On Thursday, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch (HRW) published a report dubbed "They Do Exist," documenting the existence of secret detention facilities located within the territory of Ukraine. According to the report, civilians from the regions affected by the Ukrainian conflict have been detained in such facilities, including the one located in Kharkiv.

Obama puts FBI in charge of responding to cyber attacks

A presidential directive signed by President Obama Tuesday will put the FBI in charge of responding to all cyber threats and give the federal government a more active role in investigating, preventing and mitigating attempts to hack into U.S.-based computer networks.

Obama's homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco, said the change was necessary because it's not always clear whether those responsible for a hacking incident are other countries, terrorists or criminals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given his debacle with the Clinton server issue, James Comey will NOT make this investigation fact-based in any way shape or form; it will be bent to the political will of the current administration, and to augment Hillary's chances to assume the presidency next year.

And if Russia is to be bashed and accused of something its operatives absolutely didn't do, so be it.

Never mind that the relationship between Russia and the US is on a hair-point trigger right now, with US sanctions against it still in place, again, for something it didn't do (allegedly "annexing" Crimea after the US-sponsored putsch in Ukraine).

The issues of Ukraine, Syria, and the positioning of NATO troops and weapons with which to encircle Russia, and potentially attack it, are issues where the American government needs to back away from in its hubristic, bellicose posturing, like an insolent teenager, and sit down to the negotiating table like an adult in the room with Russia, and resolve these issues in good-faith negotiations.

Of course, unfortunately, that will only happen when pigs fly; in the 20th and 21st century, the US government has always needed its "Emmanuel Goldstein" against which US citizens can unload their generally misdirected vitriol, when it is their own government which has been screwing things up both domestically, and internationally.

From the time of the cold war until now, that convenient public enemy has been Russia.

I think Trump is intelligent enough to understand that at this point in the 21st century, such enmity is pretty useless, on the cusp of a multi-polar world.

FLASHBACK - Hillary Clinton Email Hacker found Dead in Jail Cell - Guccifer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, here is the story.

Guccifer (real name Marcel Lazăr Lehel) had stated that he had hacked into Hillary's private email server, that it was very easy to do, and that he had seen at least ten other foreign IPs logged in rifling through the files. Then Guccifer was arrested for hacking AOL accounts.

When the report first surfaced that Guccifer was found dead in his jail cell, the story was declared false by Snopes.com which quoted a statement from the City of Alexandria Sheriff that Marcel Lehel Lazar is at the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center in Alexandria, Va.

Given that the original story that Guccifer was dead originated from a known disinfo site, that seemed to be the end of it.

Here is the problem.

Inmateaid has a page for the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center which includes an inmate search function for those wishing to communicate with an inmate.

That search returns no results in a search for "Marcel Lehel Lazar", or "Marcel Lazăr Lehel", or even just "Lehal" not only for the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center in Alexandria, Va. but for every prison linked into the inmateaid system!

Spy Agency Consensus Grows That Russia Hacked D.N.C.

American intelligence agencies have told the White House they now have “high confidence” that the Russian government was behind the theft of emails and documents from the Democratic National Committee, according to federal officials who have been briefed on the evidence.

But intelligence officials have cautioned that they are uncertain whether the electronic break-in at the committee’s computer systems was intended as fairly routine cyberespionage — of the kind the United States also conducts around the world — or as part of an effort to manipulate the 2016 presidential election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, American spy agencies have "“high confidence” that the Russian government was behind the theft of emails and documents from the Democratic National Committee" with utterly no proof?!?

Forgive me, but I am having a palm to forehead moment at warp speed, upon reading this.

I am sorry, but cold hard reality indicates to me that one cannot have "high confidence" with absolutely zero proof, and that is where our "alphabet soup" spy agencies are with this allegation.

They have nothing, nada, ZIP on the facts of this case, and have demonstrated to the American people once again that nothing these people say can be trusted at all, ever.

It appears that this is the most convenient lie they could come up with, because the potential truth about how these documents became leaked is far more damning than claiming the "the Russians did it."

And now, as reported yesterday at the New York Times:

The assessment by the intelligence community of Russian involvement in the D.N.C. hacking, which largely echoes the findings of private cybersecurity firms that have examined the electronic fingerprints left by the intruders, leaves President Obama and his national security aides with a difficult diplomatic and political decision: whether to publicly accuse the government of President Vladimir V. Putin of engineering the hacking. Such a public accusation could result in a further deterioration of the already icy relationship between Washington and Moscow, at a moment when the administration is trying to reach an accord with Mr. Putin on a cease-fire in Syria and on other issues. It could also doom any effort to reach some kind of agreement about acceptable behavior in cyberspace, of the kind the United States has been discussing with China.

So President Obama, I have a logical question for you; what if your administration publicly accuses Russia of having done this, and it comes out that the leaks found themselves at wikileaks through an absolutely alternative way?!?

What will this do to any shred of credibility your administration has left?!? And what about any shred of credibility Clinton's campaign may have left?!?

Sir, I would strongly suggest that you and your advisors think long and hard about this possibility.

You have utterly no evidence of this accusation, nor have you evidence that "Guccifer 2" ever worked for Russia's G.R.U.

Without proof, this is simply a fabricated lie to make the possibility of Russia having done this an easier "sell" to the American people; however, your problem, sir, is that the American people are not "buying",particularly not after they were lied into an horrific war against Iraq, on the charge that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

AUSTRALIA'S "ABU GHRAIB"-LIKE TORTURE OF JAILED CHILDREN CAPTURED IN "CHILLING" TV FOOTAGE

Footage from an ABC investigation revealed juvenile detention center guards in Australia's Northern Territory shackling, hooding, taunting, and teargassing detained children—as well as leaving them in solitary confinement for extended periods of time.

Such abuse of children "may amount to torture by the government responsible for their care."
haunting footage that aired Monday on the investigative program "Four Corners" provoked comparisons to the U.S. military's illegal torture of detainees in Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo Bay, scandalizing human rights observers in Australia and worldwide.

Australia's Indigenous Affairs minister, Nigel Scullion, characterized the TV documentary as "some of the most disturbing footage I have ever seen." He added: "And it beggars belief that the people that we put in charge of [caring] for vulnerable children in detention and[...] looking after their welfare were in fact brutalizing those children."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please note that these kids are not European/British-origin kids; they are indigenous Australian children, so I guess whoever signed off on this torture thought these practices were a perfectly acceptable way to "put them in their place."

Whoever signed off on these practices, and whoever did this to these kids, should be tried and convicted by a jury of their peers for child torture, then have to pay restitution for the physical and emotional challenges these kids will be facing for the rest of their lives.

GERMAN “OFFICIALS” CALL TO CHANGE CONSTITUTION AFTER MUNICH SHOOTING; MILITARY ON STREETS, GUN CONTROL

The bodies of the victims of Munich’s recent mass shooting barely cold, German “authorities” and politicians have wasted no time in calling for more police state measures and the further clamp down on access to gun ownership in Germany.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Hermann is now pushing for going so far as to revise the German Constitution so that limits placed on using the military domestically can be removed, allowing the German military to be used inside Germany for “large-scale terrorist situations.”

The limits on Germany’s military were put in place after World War II and in response to Germany’s experience with the Nazi regime with all its excesses, totalitarianism, violence, and genocide.

Hermann stated that Germany is “an absolutely stable democracy” and, as such, Germans should be perfectly fine with having their military deployed on German streets.

'EU IS NOT HONEST' TURKEY THREATENS TO SEND 3MILLION MIGRANTS AS EU 'FAILS TO GIVE £2.5BN'

President Erdogan claimed the EU was not honest
Erdogan claimed Turkey had only received a fraction of the money promised to them for taking in migrants sent back from Greece - stating they were given just a third of the €3bn promised.

But the Commission has hit back, saying the leader's allegations were "not true" as the full sum had been sent over.

The deal, and the promised cash, allows Europe to send Middle East refugees who arrived in Greece back to Turkey in exchange for political and financial freedom.

But the Turkish leader estimated Turkey has spent some £9.12billion (€10.9 bn) to help refugees since the start of the five-year civil war in Syria.

Turkey has spent some £9.12billion to help refugees

He added: "Ask them, did you pay? But Turkey still hosts 3 million people.

"What would Europe do if we let these people go to Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The European economy is already teetering on fine edge right now.

Another flood of refugees would put it absolute over the edge, economically, and voters would demand regime change in every country which allowed more refugees in.

And unfortunately, no leader in Europe has the "male attributes" to demand that President Obama stop these wars of conquest, which are creating the refugee problem in the first place!

CONFIRMED: AMIDST SHARPENING CRISIS, POROSHENKO AND CO. HAVE LEFT UKRAINE

Everything is getting hotter in Ukraine. Alexander Turchynov is speaking of martial law. Pavel Sheremet was murdered in Kiev. The situation in Donbass has escalated. Meanwhile, Minister of Internal Affairs head Avakov has left on vacation. So has Kiev Mayor Klitchko. And not only them.

As sources in the Ukrainian Ministry of Transport have relayed to PolitNavigator, on July 22nd in the late evening, a private Golfstream 200 plane (tail number Te-PRM) with President Poroshenko on board departed Kiev International Airport for Malaga, Spain. As Ukrainian media have repeatedly written, Poroshenko has a villa near Malaga.

The president’s departure and his absence in the capital have not been publicized. The President, however, is even issuing instructions from his Spanish estate. On Monday, for example, he instructed the Prime Minister and Mayor of Kiev to strengthen security measures for public safety.

“THIS IS MY SECOND ONE” — VIRGINIA COP CAUGHT BRAGGING ABOUT KILLING TWO UNARMED PEOPLE

A former Virginia police officer and U.S. Navy veteran, whose trial for murder begins this week, told a witness, “this is my second one,” after killing an unarmed 18-year-old black man in April 2015.

While unclear whether or not the jarring statement amounted to a boast, the camera on ex-Portsmouth Officer Stephen Rankin’s Taser recorded him saying this to a Walmart employee mere seconds after he fatally shot unarmed teen and alleged shoplifter William Chapman in the store’s parking lot in April 2015.

Rankin had, indeed, killed another unarmed man, Kirill Denyakin — under circumstances similarly and sufficiently questionable to earn three years’ administrative leave — just four years prior to the shooting for which he now stands accused of first-degree murder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This shooting of unarmed people with impunity by the police in the US just has to stop!!

Henceforward, when anyone becomes a police officer, the contract they must sign with any city or county entity, should include language that if they shoot an unarmed person, and the family sues, the city or county will make them pay damages personally.

That just MAY put a damper on "shoot to kill" mentality here.

The second thing that has to be done is completely abandon Israeli training of American police; unfortunately, what these Israelis teach is precisely what the IDF does to the Palestinians, and frequently unarmed Palestinians are gunned down with absolute impunity.

Also, as reported at blacklistednews.com yesterday is the following, very sobering, article about police violence in the US:

If anyone needed a reminder that America has a police brutality problem, the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile provided it. Actual numbers on violent police encounters are difficult to come by, but this dearth of data is getting more attention. New research published in the British Medical Journal demonstrates the danger posed to citizens by the most routine police practice of a “legal stop.” Researchers analyzed 12.3 million police interventions from 2012 and found that approximately 55,400 people were injured or killed by cops during legal stop and search incidents in one year. Of this number, about 1,000 were killed, with vast majority dying from gunshot wounds. The remaining 54,400 were hospitalized with serious injuries, mostly from blunt objects. “ON AVERAGE, AN ESTIMATED 1 IN 291 STOPS/ARRESTS RESULTED IN HOSPITAL-TREATED INJURY OR DEATH OF A SUSPECT OR BYSTANDER.” Granted, some of these injuries or deaths were justified to protect officers or innocent people from actual violent people, but even the authors of the study conclude that these numbers reflect an “excess exposure” of people to police violence. In an interview with Vocativ, lead author Ted Miller, of the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, pointed out how many shooting deaths in the U.S. come from a police gun. “In one in 11 cases where someone died because someone else intentionally shot them, a police officer pulled the trigger,” said Miller.

These numbers speak for themselves, and tell a very unsettling story regarding American police violence.

COUPS INSIDE NATO: A DISTURBING HISTORY

Emphasizing the high political stakes for the alliance, India’s former Ambassador to Turkey M. K. Bhadrakumar recently declared that the “Turkish allegation has no precedent in NATO’s 67-year old history – of one member plotting regime change in another member country through violent means.”

But the assumption that NATO has always before respected peaceful political change within its ranks is false. The historical record — which may fuel Turkish paranoia — suggests that anti-communist solidarity within the alliance has too often taken precedence over the fine democratic sentiments endorsed in NATO’s founding document.

Before this summer’s botched attempt, for example, Turkey previously experienced military coups in 1960, 1971, 1980 and 1997. Comforted by the staunch anti-communism of its military, U.S. officials rarely batted an eye when Turkish officers took charge. In some cases, Washington may have had foreknowledge of the plots.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the US government, attempted, and sometimes successful, regime change is as American as apple pie.

Julian Assange: 'A lot more material' coming on US elections

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said Tuesday his whistleblowing website might release "a lot more material" relevant to the US electoral campaign.

Assange was speaking in a CNN interview following the release of nearly 20,000 emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee by suspected Russian hackers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CNN is behind the times. Even Hillary's campaign chief admits there is no actual evidence that Russia had anything to do with the hack/leak. And Assange himself, while not identifying the source, has stated it is not Russia.

FelonsVotesMatter (To Hillary) - Clinton's Election Fate In Virginia Lies With 200,000 Unregistered Offenders

Reminding us once again that nothing is off limits to the Clintons when it comes to winning elections, Politico earlier today wrote about Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe's (D) efforts to register 200,000 ex-felons to vote in November. For reference, 200,000 is over 5% of the 3.8mm people who voted in the Presidential race in 2012 and is larger than Obama's margin of victory over Mitt Romney of 149,298.

Taking a play from Obama's playbook, McAuliffe signed a sweeping executive order it April 2016 granting 206,000 felons in Virgina, who had completed their sentence, the right to vote. We previously wrote about this order here. Hillary Clinton, a long-time friend of Governor McAuliffe, was quick to express her approval of the executive order over twitter:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The law in Virginia used to be that Felons had to wait 5 years after completing their sentences/probation, then apply for restoration of their voting rights, which would be granted only is certain conditions were met, such as no pending prosecutions.

Black Lives Matter supporters march against Hillary Clinton: ‘Hard to trust’

Hillary Clinton is using the Democratic National Convention to aggressively woo minority voters, whom she is relying on to put her over the top in November, and she enlisted President Obama to spearhead the effort with a keynote speech Wednesday.

But the bid to reunite the coalition of black and Hispanic voters who were instrumental in Mr. Obama’s two White House wins ran into powerful headwinds Tuesday from the Black Lives Matter movement. Black protesters took to streets with calls to shut down the convention just as Mrs. Clinton received the nomination and made history as the first female standard-bearer for a major political party.

As several hundred Black Lives Matters protesters marched through the city toward the convention at the Wells Fargo Center, the crowd chanted, “Hell no, DNC/We won’t vote for Hillary!”
