CBS News Edits Out Embarrassing Verbal Slip in Bill Clinton Interview

“Well if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors,” he said, “because frequently—well not frequently, rarely—but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated.” The bolded section is of course a pretty embarrassing slip-up: Clinton was about to say that Hillary “frequently” faints or collapses, before correcting himself to say it rarely happened.

Former DNC Chair Calls For "Contingency Plan" If Hillary's Health Forces Her Out Of The Race

But the biggest surprise resulting from Hillary's "Medical event", is that overnight, even democrats admitted what was formerly unthinkable: the preparation of a "contingency plan" in case Hillary's health forces her out of the race.

As Politico reports, former Democratic National Committee chairman, Don Fowler, who helmed the DNC from 1995 to 1997, during Bill Clinton’s presidency, and has backed Hillary Clinton since her 2008 presidential bid, said that Obama and the Democratic party’s congressional leaders should immediately come up with a process to identify a potential successor candidate for Hillary Clinton "for the off-chance a health emergency forces her out of the race."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fowler had the guts to do this out loud, which was remarkable.

And to the writer of this article; I would like to politely remind you that it was the "independent media", which you have chosen to label "the fringe media" which uncovered the the following realities:

1: 9/11 was an event orchestrated by elements of both the US and Israeli governments and military to engender American anger, first at Afghanistan, then Iraq, when the actual goals were control of the pipelines in Afghanistan, and its mineral wealth, and the control of Iraq's oil, and in what currency it could be bought at sold.

2: Saddam Hussein did absolutely NOT have those "alleged" weapons of mass destruction; that was simply a lie to sell the war.

3. There have been consistent problems with Hillary Clinton's health, which the American public knows absolutely nothing about.

After "September Disaster For Clinton", Democrats Near "Full-On Panic Mode"

Hillary is in the midst of a "September Disaster" and we're only weeks away from the "October Surprise" promised by WikiLeaks which purports to have 1,000s of additional damaging Hillary emails to release. According to The Hill, Clinton's "basket of deplorables" followed by her "medical episode" that resulted in a public display of her being dragged, limp and helpless, into a van, has democrats on the verge of "full-on panic mode."

Meanwhile, Boston University professor, Tobe Berkovitz, isn't buying efforts by the Clinton campaign to downplay the impact of Hillary's 9/11 "medical episode" saying that on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most damaging, the event was a 15. As Berkovitz points out, no amount of spin from the Clinton camp can remove that moment of complete frailty from the minds of voters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You just "can't unsee" what happened to Hillary Clinton on Sunday, and it makes a powerful argument against her being fit, physically, to be this country's commander in chief.

Hillary Became Unelectable Long Ago

The relevance of yesterday’s health episode is not that it made her unelectable, but rather that it might have finally convinced enough of her financial backers that they risk losing the capital invested in ‘their’ candidates’ campaign. She’s their liability now too. I’ve seen people suggest that Trump is throwing his campaign as a way to help Hillary, but I sometimes think it may well be the other way around.

It’s kind of hard to imagine, looking back, for someone to run a worse campaign than Hillary has, but then that’s obvious when you look at how many things had to be kept hidden, how many lies had to be told, how many narratives had to be spun. It just got to be too much, for her, and for the staff. The outcome was always predictable, but they figured they could get away with it.

NPR Station Publishes Anti-Trump Comic for Teachers, Children to Use in Class

San Francisco Bay Area NPR affiliate KQED has published a comic book guide to Donald Trump’s immigration policy, aimed at students, which is titled “Fear of Foreigners” and casts Trump as part of the “History of Nativism in America.”
The comic book slide show, illustrated by Andy Warner, is part of KQED’s series “The Lowdown,” described by the station as “Connecting newsroom to classroom,” and is presented among “lesson plans and education guides” for teachers to use.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm sorry: KQED just crossed a line here, and should have its broadcasting license revoked.

Substituting clever demagoguery for history, and particularly demonstrating rampant political favoritism in an election year, is a big, tacky, hairy no-no.

The executives at KQED should have known better; but because they were obviously indulging in the process of "collective magical thinking", they didn't believe that this little bit of trickery would be found out.

Sorry, guys and gals: you're busted on this one!!

Swedish Economist: Low Skilled Migrants a ‘Ticking Time Bomb’

Despite politicians’ insistence that migrants who poured into Sweden last year were highly educated and would be an economic boon, SEB economist Johan Javeus has warned that the newcomers are low skilled, and a “ticking time bomb” in the labour market.

The Scandinavian Individual Bank (SEB) economist warned that the lack of menial jobs combined with record high mass migration is a time bomb that could explode in time for the 2018 elections. Labour minister Ylva Johansson played down concerns, describing it as “a challenge that can be managed”.

In 2015, the difference in the unemployment rate among highly-educated Swedes and among foreign-born with only basic secondary education stood at a record level of more than 30 percentage points.

Noting the vast majority of new arrivals who entered during 2015 have very little education, Mr. Javeus told Svenska Dagbladet that the gap will continue to widen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...manageable", HOW, Labor Minister Johansson?!?

It's going to take an economic miracle to get these people fast-tracked in the Swedish language, and capable of competing for good jobs. And just how do you propose to do that, considering that the Swedish economy has been tepid, at best, for at least the first 2 quarters of 2016?!?

As Reported in focus-economics.com:

The Swedish economy has shifted into a lower gear this year, expanding at consistently lower rates than in 2015. The economy slowed to 0.3% growth in seasonally-adjusted quarterly terms in Q2, down from Q1’s 0.4%, according to preliminary data from Statistics Sweden. The main driver of the economic deceleration is the weakening external sector. Exports have lost momentum in 2016 and are likely to be further affected by the consequences of the Brexit vote. On the domestic side, declines in both industrial production and fixed investment are putting the brakes on the Nordic economy. Furthermore, the Economic Tendency Indicator, which summarizes how consumers and firms view the economy, fell in August. The decrease was mainly a consequence of less optimistic sentiment in the manufacturing industry, though retail and consumer indicators also dropped.

So, Labor Minister Johansson, just where is the money going to come from to fix, at a time when the Swedish economy is on a downward trend?!?

And if there is no money with which to fix this immigration crisis, what happens next, sir?!?

"I Protected Hillary Clinton In The Secret Service - Here's Why Her 'Fainting' Video Really Scares Me"

After 9/11, Dick Cheney spoke of how his security detail, when moving him to a secure area, lifted him by his Secret Service issued un-snap-able belt, which is used to lift and move a protectee to where they wanted the person to go.

Hillary Clinton was not wearing this standard issue belt.

So what did we hear after? At first it was that she overheated and dehydrated. Now it’s pneumonia. Before, videos of her similar spastic bizarre movement were blamed on allergies and other excuses. Clearly, the totality of her prior blood clots and deep vein thrombosis, along with her concussion and related broken elbow, tell a different story.

Fifteen Years Later, Physics Journal Concludes All Three WTC Towers Collapsed on 9/11 Due to Controlled Demolition

Over the past 15 years many highly respected academics and experts have come forward to challenge the official narrative on the collapse of the WTC towers forwarded by the U.S. government. The official government position holds that the collapse of all three towers was due to intense heat inside of the buildings.

But a new forensic investigation into the collapse of the three World Trade Center towers on 9/11, published in Europhysics News – a highly respected European physics magazine – claims that “the evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that all three buildings were destroyed by controlled demolition.”

While many in the mainstream have attempted to label anyone questioning the official narrative as “tin foil hat” conspiracy theorist, many highly respected experts have come forward to lampoon the idea that the buildings collapsed due to the intense heat and fires following two terrorist-directed plane crashes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very simple: the government lied to us about 9/11; they lied to us about "Saddam's nuclear weapons"; and they are lying to us about Hillary Clinton's health.

This is why the US government, and their corporate presstitutes, have no credibility whatsoever, and cannot be believed on anything.

US Citizens Can’t Sue Saudis for Perpetrating 9/11, but Can Sue Iranians Who Had Nothing to Do With It: Obama

the House and Senate have unanimously passed an act that could make it possible for US 9/11 victims to sue Saudis for their complicity in perpetrating the 9/11 attack.

Bush and Obama censored for more than a decade the evidence of Saudi involvement while they invaded Iraq, killing at least hundreds of thousands of people.

Obama is now reasserting his intention to veto the act, but, as Jason Ditz reports, will still allow “9/11 victims to sue Iran, even though Iran had nothing to do with the attack”.

Ditz continues that this is in keeping with the standard US practice of “protecting its allies [and itself] from lawsuits while setting up suits against international rivals”. (The US has been attempting to reconquer Iran since 1979 when the US’s Iranian proxy-dictator, whom Amnesty International called one of the world’s worst human rights violators, was overthrown.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks: this is American foreign policy ON DRUGS!!

And the reason Obama is going to veto the bill about Americans being able to sue Saudi Arabia is purely economic; as reported at cnn.com on 16 May, 2016:

Revealed: Saudi Arabia owns $117 billion of U.S. debt

Were Saudi Arabia to dump their holdings all at once, it would send the US economy crashing, perhaps irrecoverably, instantaneously.

German Police Tell Women 'Wear Sneakers' to Outrun Migrant Rapists

German police finally came up with a solution to the migrant rape crisis: tell women to wear sneakers so they can outrun their migrant rapists -- even though they're all young men.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

Is THIS the best the German government and police have to offer young German women at risk from this kind of attack?!?

Because, upon hearing that, were I a young German woman, I would be enrolling in a self-defense course right now, and carrying every kind of legal weapon imaginable.

The walking in groups advice provides strength through numbers, and that may not be a bad thing, particularly if they are sister students from your self-defence classes.

The only way to prevent these attacks is do demonstrate - en masse - that there will be payback for them, and that they simply will not be tolerated.

And secondly, were I a young German woman of voting age, I would vote the Merkel government out of office as quickly as possible, and in a manner that it will make Angela Merkel's head spin!

Jimmy Kimmel Admits Faking Hillary Clinton Pickle Jar Skit - Jar Pre-Opened Before Show

Jimmy Kimmel admits that the skit where Hillary Clinton opened a jar of pickles to "prove" she was "healthy" was fake and the jar was already opened to make sure she wouldn't fail on national television. #PickleGate controversy won't go away after Kimmel was called out for staging the stunt trying to get people to laugh of concerns about Hillary's Health. Media analyst Mark Dice has the story. © 2016 by Mark Dice

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike Rivero called this the moment he saw/heard it, and mentioned, very publicly, that there was no "snap" sound of the vacuum being broken on the pickle jar lid; and now Kimmel confirms the jar-opening bit was a complete fake.

And now, in light of Clinton's collapse on Sunday, Kimmel will have to live with the label "the guy enabling Hillary's lies about her health" for the rest of his life.

I don't consider this funny at all.

I frankly don't want a lying faker, or their lying-enabling minions, running this country.

I want an honest, honorable person, who put the needs and concerns of the American people first, second, and third, and fix the enormous messes which are the true, and troubling, "legacy" of the Obama Administration.

Israel eyeing Gaza-bound 'women's flotilla' setting sail from Barcelona

Despite the recent reconciliation of ties between Israel and Turkey, it appears that the controversial Gaza-bound flotilla movement has yet to subside.

An activist flotilla sailing under the banner "Mujeres Rumbo a Gaza" (Women's Boat to Gaza) was set to anchor off from Barcelona on Wednesday evening toward the Gaza Strip.

The small fleet of two vessels was slated to carry dozens of women from various nations, including Israel, with the aim of breaching and boycotting Israel's naval blockade of the coastal Palestinian enclave.

Meanwhile, Israel was prepared to thwart the flotilla from illegally infringing on the maritime blockade of Gaza, which was established in 2007 following the terrorist group Hamas's takeover of the Strip.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These women need to be prepared for getting physically battered, and ultimately killed, by the IDF, no matter how peaceful they are, to insure that the Israeli blockade of Gaza continues, unabated.

And when that happens, I hope to heaven that several people on those boats with cell cameras capture those images, and make them go viral.

This is what Israeli officials are terrified of; that the brutality against Palestinians and pro-Palestinian supporters is documented, and witnessed in an incontrovertible way, because they know that this blockade is both morally and legally wrong.

Chaffetz subpoenas FBI for full Clinton email probe file

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz publicly subpoenaed the FBI's full case file in the Hillary Clinton email investigation Monday, delivering the document demand to a senior FBI official during a contentious hearing where Democrats accused Republicans of mounting a partisan attack on Clinton's presidential campaign.

"It's 'trust, but verify' is how it works," Chaffetz told FBI acting legislative affairs chief Jason Herring. "You don't get to decide what I get to see. I get to see it all."

After Herring said he could not promise to deliver all the investigative summaries—known as 302s—in an unedited form, Chaffetz sent the subpoena down from the dais to the witness table where the FBI official sat with colleagues from six other agencies.

"I've signed this subpoena. We want all the 302s....and you are hereby served," Chaffetz said.

The chairman also complained that the FBI was trying to decide for itself what was relevant to the committee's probe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know how well this will play out for Chaffetz; however, I would speculate that ultimately, it may not be Hillary's health that will prevent her from continuing on the campaign trail, but a cascade of impending indictments, ripping away at the rotten underbelly of how the Clinton Cartel really functions.

Report: US, Israel Agree on $38 Billion Military Aid Deal

Israel’s Channel 2 has today reported that Israeli officials have accepted the most recent US military aid package, which will see them receiving some $38 billion over the next decade. Israeli officials are said to be eager to finalize it, and it is expected to be signed in the next few days.

This comes just a day after a report in the Washington Post claiming that the deal was being held up by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC), who was planning to advance his own, slightly larger military aid bill through the Senate and accused Obama of trying to take over appropriations duties that are rightfully Congress’.

Graham says Benjamin Netanyahu warned him he was holding up the deal, and that he told Netanyahu to tell the Obama Administration “to go F themselves.” The White House was said to be reluctant to sign the deal with Graham so outraged by it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is fascinating to me that this Congress and President can so blithely throw money at a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, while being oblivious the real pain imposed by Obama's disastrous economic policies here at home, which are certainly bearing "fruit", as evidenced from this headline reported at zerohedge.com yesterday:

Tent Cities Full Of Homeless People Are Booming In Cities All Over America As Poverty Spikes''

These people have become marginalized; made to feel irrelevant; and become absolutely lost to a national leadership thoroughly fixated on throwing money at a foreign leader like Netanyahu, who has done absolutely nothing to deserve it, rather than fixing the massive, looming economic problems here at home.

“I Protected Hillary Clinton In The Secret Service – Here’s Why Her ‘Fainting’ Video Really Scares Me”

Her detail knew that there was something very wrong with her and they were prepared. When I protected her, I witnessed her irate behavior and, frankly, I don’t think anyone can operate with such uncontrollable fits of anger and not have it take a toll on a person’s health—I think that’s exactly what has resulted. I can’t help but feel sorry for her detail, because I know from personal experience that they will bear the burden for as long as their mental and physical resilience will tolerate. I bet that night they got berated for letting this “leak,” but it has nothing to do with their performance and everything to do with her character.

VW Dieselgate engineer sings like a canary: Entire design team was in on it – not just a few bad apples, allegedly

A Volkswagen engineer has agreed to spill the details of his involvement in the VW emissions scandal.

Former engineer James Robert Liang took a plea deal with the US federal government to cooperate with its ongoing investigation of how the German carmaker cheated American emissions tests and passed off its "clean diesel" engines as meeting state and government clean air standards.

While VW executives have claimed that the use of a defeat device to artificially limit emissions during tests was the work of a "couple of software engineers," Liang's plea deal shows that the conspiracy dates back roughly a decade and has roots in the team that designed the engines.

In other words, Liang claims the design team was in on it, not just a couple of bad apples.

Post 9/11 Afghanistan: Opium Cultivation, Production Increases Nearly 20-Fold

Since the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, the area under opium cultivation in the country has increased 23 fold to an area nearly ten times the size of Washington, D.C., while production of the illicit drug has skyrocketed 18-fold, from 185 metric tons to 3,300.

Opium cultivation and production has thrived over the course of the Afghanistan war despite a dramatic drop after the U.S. and NATO ended their combat mission in Afghanistan and withdrew most of their troops at the end of 2014.

Amid the ongoing heroin epidemic in the United States that is killing thousands, the White House and other government agencies have sounded the alarm on Afghanistan heroinpossibly flowing into the U.S. through Canada, where most of the heroin available is from Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the myriad reasons the US government will never leave Afghanistan; the sale of illicit drugs by U.S. "alphabet soup" agencies to fund off the books operations.

Facebook Is Collaborating With the Israeli Government to Determine What Should Be Censored

LAST WEEK, A MAJOR censorship controversy erupted when Facebook began deleting all posts containing the iconic photograph of the Vietnamese “Napalm Girl” on the ground that it violated the company’s ban on “child nudity.” Facebook even deleted a post from the prime minister of Norway, who posted the photograph in protest of the censorship. As outrage spread, Facebook ultimately reversed itself — acknowledging “the history and global importance of this image in documenting a particular moment in time” — but this episode illustrated many of the dangers I’ve previously highlighted in having private tech companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google become the arbiters of what we can and cannot see.

I have to say that the negative reverberations in our current economic and political environment are becoming so strong that it is impossible for people to not feel at least some uneasiness in their gut. I imagine this is the same kind of sensation many felt from 1914 to 1918 during World War I and the terrible birth of communism, or perhaps in the early 1930s at the onset of the Great Depression and the rise of fascism. Some global changes are so disturbing that they send shockwaves through the collective unconscious before they ever hit the mainstream. People know that something is about to happen, even if they cannot yet clearly define it.

Just like during the last economic crisis, homeless encampments are popping up all over the nation as poverty grows at a very alarming rate. According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, more than half a million people are homeless in America right now, but that figure is increasing by the day. And it isn’t just adults that we are talking about. It has been reported that that the number of homeless children in this country has risen by 60 percent since the last recession, and Poverty USA says that a total of 1.6 million children slept either in a homeless shelter or in some other form of emergency housing at some point last year. Yes, the stock market may have been experiencing a temporary boom for the last couple of years, but for those on the low end of the economic scale things have just continued to deteriorate.

Zafke is charged with 3,681 counts of accessory to murder for allegedly helping the Auschwitz death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland function.
The charges stem from a one-month period in 1944 and involve the deaths of Jews who arrived in 14 train transports, among them one that brought Anne Frank and her family to the camp. Frank died later at Bergen-Belsen, and Zafke is not charged over her death.
Note: Auschwitz was not a death camp. It had a swimming pool, orchestras, soccer games, inmate hospital staffed with great doctors etc. So why this.....because the holocau$t is big business!!

She’s a Pistol gunfight unfolds on video as defendants argue self-defense

This is bizarre. The defendants who tried to rob this gun store, killed the owner and wounded his wife, are arguing self defense! They also have an anti-gun troll in comments who is advocating for the death of the widow.

Video that captured the fatal shooting inside a Shawnee gun store last year was played publicly for the first time Monday as one of the men charged in the case sought to show he acted in self-defense.

The hearing in Johnson County District Court is scheduled to continue on Tuesday.

Jon Bieker died in an exchange of gunfire during a January 2015 attempted robbery at She’s A Pistol, the shop he co-owned with his wife, Becky Bieker.

De’Anthony Wiley, one of the four men charged with first-degree murder in Bieker’s death, is claiming that at the time Bieker was fatally shot, Wiley was acting in self-defense because he was wounded and had tried to surrender.

Wells Fargo exec who headed up phony accounts unit walks away with $125 Million USD

Well Fargo’s “sandbagger”-in-chief is leaving the giant bank with an enormous pay day--$124.6 million.

In fact, despite beefed-up “clawback” provisions instituted by the bank shortly after the financial crisis, and the recent revelations of massive misconduct, it does not appear that Wells Fargo is requiring Carrie Tolstedt, the Wells Fargo executive who was in charge of the unit whose employees were responsible for opening more than 2 million largely unauthorized customer accounts--a seemingly routine practice that employees internally referred to as “sandbagging”--to give back any of her nine-figure pay.

Scott Adams: Deplorable Pneumonia

When Hillary Clinton called half of Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables,” I said it would not move the polls more than 1%. My thinking is that we have three types of voters:

1. The Deplorables – who already made up their minds for Trump.

2. Clinton supporters – who already made up their minds for Clinton.

3. Undecideds – who don’t care about stuff like this. That’s why they are undecided. And most of them probably have decided. They just don’t want to admit it.

All by itself, the “deplorable” gaffe wouldn’t be much of an issue in the long run. Clinton had time to apologize and recover from it.

The video made the rounds Sunday, showing a weak-kneed Clinton being carried into a van near the September 11th Memorial. It wasn’t taken by the pool of journalists who usually surrounds her. Instead it was captured on a smartphone by Zdenek Gazda, who is reportedly a 50-year-old Czech immigrant and Clinton supporter. He happened to be standing nearby. According to Twitter, people have viewed his tweet more than 10 million times.

In 2016, thanks to ubiquitous video on every social media platform, it takes just a matter of minutes for a person with a smartphone to inject a massive story into the mainstream conversation.

Is The Syria Ceasefire Actually A Good Thing?

By Brandon Turbeville

As the US-Russian-backed “ceasefire” plan begins to take effect in Syria today, much of the world is holding its breath in hopes that all guns fall silent and that a “political solution” is found. Despite the fact that virtually everyone expects the ceasefire to fall apart within a short amount of time, the Western media is hailing the agreement as a diplomatic victory for the United States while many alternative media outlets are representing the agreement as a victory for the Russians.

The ceasefire deal, brokered between Russia and the United States, is made up of a number different facets...

Project For The New American Century huh! Great pick Donald.

R. James Woolsey, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) under President Bill Clinton from 1993-1995, is a well-connected advocate of militarist U.S. foreign policies. He has supported the work of several neoconservative-led groups, including the Committee on the Present Danger, the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq, the Project for the New American Century, the Center for Security Policy, among numerous others.

Since 2011, Woolsey has chaired the board of directors of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, an important bastion of hawkish “pro-Israel” advocacy in the United States that has served as an outpost for many well-known rightist ideologues.

Emergency DNC Plan Underway to Replace Hillary Clinton: “Unchartered Political Territory”

You know things are bad when your health is failing, the cover-up of your failing health is failing, your only supporters have a net worth over $1 billion and even your party begins to abandon you. Politically, the DNC is facing the stark reality that they may have no choice but to come up with a last minute alternative candidate. Maybe somebody predictable, like Biden, lying around; maybe a surprise. Either way, Hillary and her campaign staff are being forced to come to terms with the fact that her unstable condition has been exposed. Why did she continue to run when she knew something was terribly wrong with her? Will she continue to run, despite what is obvious to everyone and even the media must admit? The would-be emperor is naked. How much longer will the charade go on?

When Hillary collapsed this weekend so did her credibility. Her inability to just be straight with America is what's truly Deplorable

Hillary Clinton made a terrible mistake on Friday night.
Speaking to a star-studded audience at a fund-raiser in New York, she inexplicably decided to abuse, denigrate and mock tens of millions of her fellow Americans.
‘You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,’ she sneered. ‘Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it.’

The well-heeled, affluent, liberal, metropolitan elite crowd at super-fancy Cipriani restaurant in Wall Street, where Barbra Streisand and Rufus Wainwright performed that same night, whooped and hollered.

I didn’t. Like many, I just winced when I saw it.

It was an astonishingly crass thing to say.

Far worse, I would suggest, than Mitt Romney’s infamous 47% gaffe during the last election campaign, when he suggested half the country were entitled victims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are many occasions when Mr. Morgan and I do not see eye to eye, but in this instance, we absolutely do.

And the ultimate question which must be asked, is, if Hillary Clinton has been lying about her health, what else have she and her team been lying about?!?

There were two startling discoveries I made, in doing some research about the Clinton Foundation, and both are a tremendous cause for concern:

First:

Hillary Clinton Took Millions from Anti-LGBT Countries That Jail and Execute Gays

And the second:
Clinton Foundation took money from countries allowing female genital mutilation

If, in fact, Clinton is pro-woman, and pro-LGBTQ, why in the name of heaven would the Clinton Foundation accept ANY money from countries still permitting these barbaric, cruel practices against women, and their LGBTQ communities?!?

The mind boggles.

And don't you dare tell me "she didn't know"; with the wealth of information at her fingertips, how could she not understand that this was going on in those countries which donated to her foundation?!?

At the end of the day, looking at how she and her team have lied their heads off about her health issues, the short, honest answer nearly has to be, "She knew, but didn't give a damn."

Why Did Hillary Clinton Lie About Her Health?

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign just made a massive error. We'll know within the next few weeks if the error will prove to be catastrophic.

On Sunday, Clinton abruptly left a Manhattan ceremony marking the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. A video shows her shakily stumbling while trying to get into a van to leave. The candidate's physician later offered this explanation: Clinton has had an allergy-related cough for some time, and during an examination on Friday, the Democratic nominee was diagnosed with pneumonia, put on antibiotics, and told to take time out to rest. She became overheated and dehydrated during Sunday morning's event, which led her to collapse. She's now home in Chappaqua and on the road to recovery.

Compare this timeline to details from Hillary Clinton's public schedule and behavior over these same two days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to speculate: is Clinton's pneumonia somewhat akin to the "Brezhnev Flu", and is she a lot more ill than the campaign wants to let on?!?!?

Tent Cities Full Of Homeless People Are Booming In Cities All Over America As Poverty Spikes

Just like during the last economic crisis, homeless encampments are popping up all over the nation as poverty grows at a very alarming rate. According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, more than half a million people are homeless in America right now, but that figure is increasing by the day. And it isn’t just adults that we are talking about. It has been reported that that the number of homeless children in this country has risen by 60 percent since the last recession, and Poverty USA says that a total of 1.6 million children slept either in a homeless shelter or in some other form of emergency housing at some point last year. Yes, the stock market may have been experiencing a temporary boom for the last couple of years, but for those on the low end of the economic scale things have just continued to deteriorate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government has billions of dollars for bombs and extrajudicial assassinations; however, apparently, these people who have fallen off a cliff into extreme poverty do not matter at all to local, county, and federal government, except as a "health and property hazard."

I deeply feel that one of the most critical measures of a society is how they treat their most vulnerable citizens; and in this measure, the US government is failing, miserably.

Reckless Security Firm Hired to Protect Dakota Pipeline Company Has Dark Past in Palestine

When the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe mobilized thousands to protect their land and water in Cannon Ball, North Dakota from a proposed $3.8 billion crude-oil pipeline, they were met with national guard deployments, police crackdowns, an FBI investigation and private security forces that attacked them with dogs. A key firm hired during this time to provide security for the pipeline company, Dakota Access LLC, is the British multinational G4S—one of the largest private security corporations in the world targeted by a years-long global boycott campaign for profiting from the inhumane treatment of Palestinians in Israeli prisons, including the torture of children.

Chelsea Manning Begins Hunger Strike, Demanding “Dignity and Respect” in Prison

Starting on Friday, Manning said, she would not willingly consume any food or drink, except water and prescribed medications.

Manning also refused to “voluntarily cut or shorten her hair in any way.” Army officials repeatedly force Manning to cut her hair to “military standards” – an appearance that she says does not reflect her gender identity.

Human rights advocates have repeatedly raised concerns about Manning’s treatment in prison. After her arrest in 2010, she was subjected to solitary confinement for extended periods and repeatedly stripped naked in her cell. Her treatment was so bad that a State Department spokesperson spoke out against the Pentagon and described it as “ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid.”

Since her conviction, Manning has been repeatedly threatened with indefinite solitary confinement, for charges as frivolous as keeping an expired tube of toothpaste in her cell.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman was charged and jailed for telling the truth, in an environment of repeated governmental and military lies.

She embarrassed this government and military for telling the truth; that is why she will most likely die in a military prison.

That the US government and military are trying to make a martyr our of her does not speak well for peace and justice in this country at all.

The Tyranny of 9/11

We’ve walked a strange and harrowing road since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties.

We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade the citizenry to march in lockstep with a police state. In doing so, we have proven Osama Bin Laden right. He warned that “freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in – and the West in general – into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”

These past 15 years have indeed been an unbearable, choking hell.

What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The price American citizens have paid for 9/11 has been that of 15 years of perpetual wars in the Middle East and beyond (with no seeming end in sight), in order to control raw materials, and insure that they are only sold for the US dollar.

The cost of these wars has been staggering, as have been the costs of resettling war refugees in this country.

We can believe nothing the Federal government or their media presstitutes say, after 9/11, and the charge that "Saddam Hussein had weapons of Mass Destruction."

The corrupt, dictatorial narcopracy our government has become reminds me greatly of Terry Gilliam's master film, "Brazil", where the only information one is allowed to have comes directly from the government bureaucracy, and no alternative thoughts were allowed. The citizenry was totally disposable; and torture was a standard way of "getting the truth" out of its citizens.

And if you don't believe such things have not already happened here, you need to read this article from theguardian.com from last year:

The disappeared: Chicago police detain Americans at abuse-laden 'black site'

I criticise this country because, as a Christian pacifist activist, I want it to find ways of resolving its geopolitical disputes other than wars; unfortunately, the US government's engaging in good faith, hard-one negotiations seems no longer something it wants to do, ever.

In looking at the future, and I hope I am absolutely wrong here, I see one which is very bleak for the American people.

It appears that the US government is spoiling for wars against Russia and China; this is a very, very bad idea right now, because, as of this moment, the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strength; the manufacturing; or the money to insure a positive outcome to military confrontation with Russia and/or China.

And if you want a perfect example, take a look at all the the problems with the Lockheed-Martin "frankenfighter", the F-35:

F-35 MAY NEVER BE READY FOR COMBAT

We truly have a government of the corporations; for the corporations; and by the corporations; and in the most peaceful, logical way possible, that has got to change.

And there is a duel method for this; the first is throwing every single career politician in DC out of office, and insuring clean, no-glitch voting by using paper ballots, and the presentation of simple-to-acquire voter IDs.

Even if it IS Pneumonia : ILLNESS SHOWS HER FIRST INSTINCT IS TO LIE…

Hillary Clinton may beat pneumonia. But she won't beat a condition far more fatal: untrustworthiness. Why not just admit the pneumonia? It's not as if there's a stigma to catching it. After all, Hillary Clinton's full-time job right now is rushing from place to place on those tube-shaped petri dishes called airplanes, speaking for hours on end with little sleep, and then diving into crowds of often unwashed deplorables thrusting babies into her face. The larger question that will be raised by the "health scare" is the one that has dogged Clinton forever: Why does she create cover stories rather than reveal the truth? At many critical turns in her lengthy career, Clinton has chosen obfuscation rather than revelation. (Here's a nice list) So do you think the public — nearly 60% which doesn't trust her already, according to polls — will again feel "misled" by Hillary Clinton and her failure to be honest about her health?

Netanyahu’s Land-Grab Strategy

Behind the smokescreen of the broader Mideast chaos, Israel pursues a strategy of gobbling up Palestinian lands to establish de facto control of the West Bank while confining indigenous Arabs to isolated cantons, explains Alon Ben-Meir.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his coalition partners, however, are not concerned about the prospective dire repercussions of settlement activity. They put the sanctity of the land above any other consideration, and view the settlement enterprise as the prerequisite to repossessing the entire historic “land of Israel.”

For instance, stimulate the economy. That phrase came out in the ’60s.

And everybody uses it without questioning the fact that it means “print money,” “inflate the currency,” or “debase the currency.” They say “quantitative easing” with no irony.

'Negative consequences' Putin sends CHILLING warning to North Korea after nuclear test

The Russian leader has pledged to work with its allies to "solve" the worrying North Korea problem.

Pyongyang has rattled the world by holding a nuclear warhead test, which triggered a massive 5.3 magnitude earthquake on Thursday morning.

The North Korean state media confirmed it had carried out the test and revealed the country has a strategic ballistic missile it is ready to use.

But Putin has hit back at Kim Jong-Un's ambitious dictatorship, with a spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry stating: "Such demonstrative disregard for international law and opinion of the international community deserves the strongest condemnation.

"North Korea’s actions, aimed at undermining the global non-proliferation regime, pose a serious threat to peace and security on the Korean Peninsula and in the Asia-Pacific Region. This will have negative consequences primarily for North Korea itself.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Is There a Network or Newspaper in America That Doesn’t Lie?

I have some questions for you, dear readers: Is it simply me, or is there no newspaper or network in America that tells it like it is anymore? Take, for example, the Anthony Weiner case. He is the pervert who keeps sending pictures of his penis to women over the internet, more often than not while in the company of his 4-year-old son. If a man like that were married to Donald Trump’s closest assistant, The Donald would have been forced out of the race by now, no ifs or buts about it. But over on the other side, Hillary confirmed her trust in Huma Abedin—a Saudi-trained Muslim and her closest adviser—who finally separated from the pervert and asked for her privacy to be respected. The compliant, ass-licking media followed orders. Hillary’s polls remained the same.

$1 TRILLION SPENT ON US POLICE STATE SINCE 9/11 — IF THEY ‘HATED OUR FREEDOM,’ THEY MUST LOVE US NOW

Never let a tragedy go unused. This mantra of the State is as strong today as it was the day after 9/11.

As 9/11 was used to invade and occupy Iraq and Afghanistan – securing a geopolitical foothold in the region like never before – civil rights were dismantled and energies were devoted to the development of a massive domestic surveillance state that Stasi Germany could only dream of.

Indeed, 9/11 served as the perfect pretext for carrying out the goals of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) – headed by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and other purveyors of U.S. military hegemony.

In a policy document called Rebuilding America’s Defenses published exactly one year before 9/11, PNAC wrote:

“Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.“

VIDEO: JOURNALIST SWARMED BY COPS, ARRESTED FOR ASKING PEOPLE ABOUT TOWER 7 ON 9/11

For asking people what they thought about Tower 7 on the 15th anniversary of 9/11, a journalist was swarmed by cops and arrested.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, these police were suffering a severe case of SMD (selective memory disorder), and were unable to recall the First Amendment to the Constitution.

But seriously, were they ordered by their superiors to do this, any time someone might have an alternative version of what really happened on 9/11, and particularly Building 7, which was brought down by a controlled detonation?!?

And by the way, as reported yesterday at blacklistednews.com:

REPUTABLE SCIENTISTS CLAIM 9/11 WAS A CONTROLLED DEMOLITION JOB AND BUILDING 7 IS THE ACHILLES’ HEEL OF THE OFFICIAL VERSION OF EVENT
S.

The third building to fall at free fall speed on September 11, 2001, was WTC7. It was not hit by a plane on 9/11 and yet imploded on itself at free fall speed like the other two towers, meaning that there was no resistance to its collapse, indicating a perfect demolition job by experts. The building’s collapse was mistakenly reported by the media ahead of time, at a time when news channels were all clambering over themselves to read from the same hymn sheet. The BBC managed to announce the collapse of the building before it happened, adding to the confusion of the day. Fifteen years later, empirical evidence and the laws of physics are still being ignored while millions have lost their lives and the world is on the brink of war. The third building was not even mentioned in the official 9/11 report. WTC7 housed a command center and other important offices. An alarm was sounded for rescue workers to evacuate the area prior to its collapse. anonhq reports:

TRIGGER WARNINGS, SAFE SPACES, BIAS REPORTING: THE NEW MICRO-TECHNIQUES OF SURVEILLANCE AND CONTROL

A singular orthodoxy has infiltrated the discursive and parameters of U.S. and other universities and colleges. This orthodoxy now constitutes the ethical vocabulary of academia. Adopted from feminism, anti-racism, and LGBTQ theory and practice, the language, doctrines, and mechanisms of this orthodoxy now dominate academia's policies, procedures and handbooks. The terminology has become the vernacular among the swelling ranks of administrators, especially the relatively new cohort of chief diversity officers, directors of diversity, associate provosts of diversity, assistant provosts of diversity, diversity consultants, and so on and so on. I refer not merely to the orthodoxy of "diversity," but in particular to "diversity" initiativesas they are currently administered, using a particular set of policies, procedures, and mechanisms: trigger warnings, safe spaces, bias reporting, and the like.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Universities used to be about looking at controversial ideas which may well not mirror one's own thoughts; not today in the US educational system.

When these kids get out in the real world, and they realize just how brutally competitive the corporate workplace is, how are they ever going to function?!?

F-35 May Never Be Ready for CombatTesting: Report Contradicts Air Force Leadership’s Rosy Pronouncements

The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program is the most expensive procurement program in Pentagon history. It’s been plagued by schedule delays, gross cost overruns, and a slew of underwhelming performance reviews. Last month the Air Force declared its variant “ready for combat,” and most press reports lauded this as a signal that the program had turned a corner. But a memo issued from the Pentagon’s top testing official, based largely upon the Air Force’s own test data, showed that the Air Force’s declaration was wildly premature.

It doesn't appear that Lockheed Martin spends all that much on political campaign donations.

So one has to wonder; just what is the Svengali- like hold this corporation has over the US military, that it issues absolutely rosy pronouncements about a completely, vastly failed fighter production program?!?

Is there an institutional culture, inculcated into our military managers, that they can never admit to having been wrong, even if they were?!?

The mind boggles at the complete disconnect between the real, documented failings of the F-35, and how happy the US military is to commend it. In fact, an article appeared in May of this year, indicating that the production of this fighter is going to quadruple in 2019.

After years of delays, the Joint Strike Fighter program is finally ready to hit the afterburner. FORT WORTH, Texas — As green-skinned, half-assembled F-35 Joint Strike Fighters take shape, this massive factory that once cranked out thousands of World War II bombers is preparing to get real busy again. F-35 production is slated to hit full steam in 2019, and Lockheed Martin is reshaping its final assembly line to get ready. Not far from the nine assembly stations where the stealthy jets are coming together, wooden walls and plastic sheeting rise dozens of feet to the ceiling, blocking off large portions of the plant where new laser-leveled concrete is being poured. Lowered air pressure behind the screens helps keep dust and debris away from the sensitive airframes. Elsewhere, scaffolding is being erected for seven new assembly stations to come.

As most of you who read this blog understand, I abhor war as a way for the US to settle its geopolitical disputes; that being said, when war happens, our men and women in uniform deserve the best this country can deliver.

The F-35 simply isn't it.

If the problems haven't been resolved by now, I seriously doubt that they can be resolved in another 3 years.

And if I were in Congress, I would sponsor legislation insuring that there would be a clause in the weapons makers' contracts, indicating that if cost over-runs went a certain percentage over cost estimates, the weapons were delivered late, and did not function as advertised, there would be jail time for the presidents of those companies for treason.

And NOT in a Club Fed.

These deficiencies are as serious as a heart attack, for our men and women in uniform, and if such a clause in contracts for weapons, draconian as it may seem, is the only way to "cure" the problem, then so be it!!
