A Plea to Those Still Dependant Upon the Banking System, by G.S.

Recently, I discovered the last local bank in the area is being bought by a bank with eight times more exposure to derivatives. As I attempted to explain the dangers of this increased exposure to my family one evening, I realized my father may have more than the current FDIC insured limit stashed in this one bank.

In an attempt to make the case for him to at least spread out his savings, I have been researching the many reasons he should consider changing where his money is kept. I believe it is important for everyone to recognize the danger associated with having too much money in the banks, as well as the even greater danger of having it all in one bank.

If You Have Money in a US Bank Account Be Aware!

The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 is better known as “The Dodd-Frank Act” to the American public. What the American public does not know about, is that it codifies a “bail-in” provision that ensures that the United States can conduct the type of bail-in that we saw in Cyprus.

The bank bailouts of 2008 and 2009 will now be history as Dodd-Frank authorizes the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to recapitalize failed financial institutions by confiscating customers’ deposits.

A bail-in takes place before a bankruptcy under current regulations, regulators would have the power to impose losses on bank depositors while leaving other creditors of similar stature, such as derivatives counter-parties untouched. If your bank goes bust then your deposits/savings will be taken from you and turned into shares of the bank. You have no say in the matter because in legal terms, as a bank depositor, you are just an unsecured creditor of the bank.

Feds dismiss conspiracy case against Oregon standoff defendant Pete Santilli on eve of trial

On the eve of his trial, federal prosecutors in Oregon have dropped the conspiracy indictment against Peter Santilli, a self-described independent broadcaster who was present during the 41-day occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County.

(NZ)Protestors could be charged as terrorists under law change, Law Society warns

Legitimate protestors could be charged as terrorists under new legislation unless changes are made, the NZ Law Society says.

New Zealand's history of protest at sea, including against the visit of US nuclear vessels during the 1970s and 1980s, was cited during submissions on the law change today.

Parliament is considering legislation that will bring New Zealand up to date with current international rules about maritime security.

It will create new offences related to maritime terrorism and maritime boarding.

But there are concerns that the law change could be used to stifle protest at sea because the definition of what is terrorism is too broad.

Jonathan Orpin of the NZ Law Society appeared before Parliament's Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade committee today and argued for the terrorism definition to be tightened.

The current definition is to carry out or to threaten acts with the purpose of intimidating a population or to compel a government or organisation.

If Donald Trump Wins US Election, Will Hillary Clinton Nullify Results Because Of Vladimir Putin?

Call it “Plan B”…It’s all being laid out, right at our feet . On Google and Facebook, during US late night shows, through CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post and New York Times.

It will be the final death of whatever was left of American democracy.

The test run was accomplished with few casualties during the Democratic primaries, where Hillary Clinton and the DNC assured victory by rigging the entire voting process.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz lost her job as DNC Chair, but found a better job with the Clinton Campaign, and then won her Democratic primary Congressional District in Florida with little difficulty.

Bernie Sanders, who had the election stolen right from under his feet, fell quickly in line with his masters, and pathetically kissed Hillary’s ring in an embarrassing display of beta manhood.

Now we are all being prepared for the ultimate con. The Ocean’s Eleven of heists. The Presidency of the United States of America. The preparation is well underway.

Clinton Tells Trump to Shut Up on Federal Reserve

Desperate to change the narrative from her coughing fit, Hillary Clinton has come out swinging at Trump’s comments about how The Fed’s low interest rates have created an “artificially strong stock market,” exclaiming that presidents and candidates should not comment on Fed actions, showing he should not be president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary knows who really runs the country!

Weaponized' Populism from Wilders, Trump, Farage Turning 'Into Colossal Violence'

The United Nations' high commissioner for human rights blasted nationalist populists like Donald Trump and Nigel Farage for using "tactics similar" to ISIS to frighten and reel in followers.

"The proposition of recovering a supposedly perfect past is fiction; its merchants are cheats," Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said Monday. "Clever cheats."

Speaking at the Peace, Justice and Security Foundation gala in The Hague, Zeid -- a Jordanian prince married to an American from Texas, global maternal health activist Sarah Butler -- singled out Dutch politician Geert Wilders and "the populists, demagogues and political fantasists" like him.

The commissioner acknowledged he "must be a sort of nightmare" to these populists as he defends the rights of asylum seekers, gays, women and the disabled while being a Muslim "who is, confusingly to racists, also white-skinned; whose mother is European and father, Arab."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I deeply respect this man's humanitarianism, and his desire to see justice for all; in fact, if he were ever on Oahu, I would definitely invite him over for tea!

But he needs to be aware of the practical necessities for accommodating a mass movement of immigrants, and making sure, at least here in the US, that they are truly ready to culturally assimilate, and be a positive force in their communities.

I have met some really outstanding Muslim men when I was marketing for an Architectural firm in greater Los Angeles, and understand that they came here for the same reasons my ancestors did; to be able to practice their religion in peace; to be able to speak their minds freely, without fear of recrimination; to work, honestly, and to obtain the best educations and outcomes for their kids that were possible.

To these kinds of immigrants, I say...welcome to this country, from the bottom of my heart.

But to put it simply, the big, fat, ugly, underlying issues which has to be addressed here are these damnable, endless wars, which the US government is very adept at starting, but not so good at finishing.

And the tragedy here is, the US government and military are still fighting these unwinnable wars (think: Afghanistan) because they cannot even begin to think about what a graceful exit would look like.

If there were true peace in the countries we have attacked, and most probably will attack in the near future, people would want to stay at home, and fulfill their destinies there; unfortunately, the US government has made that nearly impossible in places like Libya; Somalia; Yemen; Afghanistan; Iraq; and Syria.

Dutch ex-PM calls visiting Netanyahu ‘war criminal’ amid anti-Israeli protests in The Hague

Instead of rolling out a welcome mat for Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu, who kickstarted his visit to the Netherlands on Tuesday amid huge pro-Palestine protests, the Dutch should “send him right away to the International Criminal Court,” Dries Van Agt said.
Ahead of Netanyahu’s two-day visit to the country, Van Agt, who served as Dutch PM from 1977 to 1982, labelled the Israeli leader a “war criminal” in an televised interview with the NPO1 national TV channel on Monday.

Janet Yellen Is Choosing the President: Rate Hike Would “Give Trump the White House”

The next president is not being determined by voters, but by the elite.

I don’t see how Yellen can raise rates between now and Election Day… if Trump can win.

If she did, it would tank the stock market, nail the economy and give Trump the White House.

“IT’S WORSE THAN THE GREAT DEPRESSION” – ONE IN SIX PRIME-AGED MEN HAS NO JOB

While Obama has repeatedly touted the sub-5.0% unemployment rate (4.9% most recently) as confirmation his “economic recovery” has been successful, what has received far less media attention has been the unprecedented surge in Americans no longer in the labor force, which as of August stood at a near-record 94.4 million

And while the traditional response by economic apologists and the media has been that this number is the result of a demographic change in US society, with mostly older workers no longer in the labor pool, we have over the years argued that that is misleading, and that millions of prime-aged workers have fallen out as a result of drastic changes to America’s job market, coupled with structural lack of demand for legacy jobs, which has – for example – sent the number of employed waiters and bartenders to all time highs even as the number of manufacturing workers is lower than it was in December 2014.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Obama lies about the real rate of unemployment just as he lies about everything else.

His alleged "economic recovery" has only been for the 1%, who are already fabulously wealthy.

EXPOSED: ONLINE COMMUNITY LEAKS IDENTITY OF DAKOTA PIPELINE DOG ATTACKERS

The Saturday attacks on Native-Americans who are protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) gained national attention in social media over the weekend, spurring an outcry for justice. As a result, many citizens have demanded the identity of the privately hired security forces who attacked unarmed citizens – including a child and pregnant woman – be exposed, and through the collaboration of the online community, that’s exactly what happened.

Ashley Nicole Welch, the woman pictured in the photo above, has bore much of the brunt of people’s anger as she was the main aggressor among the hired security, according to witnesses. It appears she was the first to be exposed out of the group:

Citizens are now demanding that Welch and her accomplices be held accountable for their actions, preferably through legal means, however it has been commented that a peaceful public shaming is in order, as well. We here at Anonymous are happy to oblige.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please be aware that one child and 5 adults were bitten at these protests.

Protesters, Including Children, Mauled As Private Mercenaries Attack Native American Pipeline Protest

One has to wonder whether Ms. Welch, and Bob Frost, owner of Frost Kennels had done their internship at somewhere like Abu Ghraib.

Oh, and let's not forget the mercenary corps most likely running the show:
G4S

As reported today at blacklistednews.com:

G4S is one among several private security companies protecting the pipeline construction, a spokesperson told teleSUR. G4S, a U.K.-based security multinational, admitted to having personnel deployed at “remote sites” where Native Americans are defending their lands from the planned US$3.8-million Dakota Access pipeline that they say would pollute the drinking water of millions. The actions have brought together over 200 tribes in solidarity and faced a heavy offensive by private security companies and state officers deployed under a state of emergency. The security company has been under fire for providing services to Israeli prisons and settlements, expanding across the Middle East including Afghanistan and Iraq and operating juvenile detention centers and handling deportations from the U.S. In an email to teleSUR, G4S Communications Director Monica Lewman-Garcia wrote, “G4S Secure Solutions is providing fewer than 10 security officers, assigned to remote sites, providing limited short-term unarmed patrol services.” G4S recently published a new job opening for an armed custom protection security officer in Mandan, North Dakota—next to the campsites—which was reposted on Facebook by Lakota Sioux Tribe member Olowaan Plain. Lewman-Garcia said that “there are other names” of security companies but failed to name any others. She would not answer other questions and was not available to speak by phone. Organizers told teleSUR that 10-Code LLC, a local veteran-run company, is also providing security, but they were not able to be reached. A direct action to stop construction on Saturday ended in security deploying dogs, who bit six people including a pregnant woman and a child. The private security forces also maced 30 people, activists said. G4S officers “were not present and not involved at the location where the incident occurred,” wrote Lewman-Garcia.

At least, that is what they are alleging, for the moment.

Oh, and a little side note about G4S, as reported at mic.com:

Seriously, this place is massive. They are the second largest private employer of people behind Walmart. Let’s let that sink in for a minute. They employee some 625,000 people. They operate in over 125 countries. They gained some notoriety for holding what many called "Animal House" style parties in Kabul, Afghanistan. There was also that little problem with having Afghan drug lords on their payroll, whoops!

NOT SO MAGIC: DISNEY WORLD STARTS SCANNING FINGERS OF KIDS ‘AS YOUNG AS 3’

Children in Orlando, Florida as young as three may get a little Disney magic right at the entrance to the park, as they will now be required to have their fingers scanned, local media reports. The anti-fraud measure has been slammed as a violation of privacy on social media.

“Walt Disney World has begun requiring children from 3 to 9 years old to have their fingers scanned when they enter the theme parks, just like older kids and adults,” the Orlando Sentinel, the first to report on the measure, said.

According to the paper, this measure was introduced in order to “block the use of stolen and shared tickets.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I just have to wonder where the data goes once the kids' fingers have been scanned?

FBI? CIA? NSA? Pentagon? State Department?

Were I a parent, concerned about privacy violations, I would write a letter to Roger Iger, Disney's President, asking him politely about where the data goes after these kids' hands are scanned.

Because the "good reason" and the "real reason" for these scans, I would suspect, are worlds apart.

THE WILD WEST OF MONEY IN POLITICS’: DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE BUILDER SPENDS MILLIONS TO INFLUENCE ELECTIONS

The corporation behind the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline also operates its own political action committee that has a record of donating to the campaigns of candidates who support the company’s pro-corporate, pro-fossil fuels agenda in Congress.

However, the political war chest of the Energy Transfer Partners PAC amounts to pennies compared to the wealth of Kelcy Warren, the chairman and CEO, who has spent millions becoming one of the most politically powerful oil tycoons in Texas.

“Unlike the federal system, here in the state of Texas, for state candidates, there are no limits on campaign contributions. We call it the Wild West of money in politics,” Andrew Wheat told MintPress News.

Wheat is the research director for Texans for Public Justice, an Austin-based nonprofit that tracks the influence of money and corporate power in Lone Star State politics, and he identified Warren as one of the state’s most influential donors.

JULIAN ASSANGE: THIS IS THE REAL REASON BERNIE SANDERS DROPPED OUT OF THE RACE

It’s no secret that Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has great disdain for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Shortly before the Democratic National Convention, the activist released incriminating email showing that the DNC had worked against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in favor of a Clinton nomination.

Though that did much to shake up supporters of the American political system and infuriate supporters of Sanders, the Vermont Senator pledged his support to Clinton nonetheless. He cited that it was important to unify the party and prevent a Trump presidency. Rigged or not (and it’s most definitely rigged), is this truly the reason Bernie Sanders gave up the good fight?

According to Assange, Bernie Sanders was threatened. During an interview with Australian journalist John Pilger, who is based in the United Kingdom, Assange disclosed some very concerning information. Pilger, who is working on a documentary about Assange, asked:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these allegations prove true, this is standard operating Clinton Cartel behaviour.

Threats, harassment, blackmail, and sometimes even assassinations are their stock in trade, but never traceable back to them, specifically; such threats against Sanders, his family and friends, would have been normal Clinton behaviour.

Aerial Spraying for Zika Stirs Controversy in Miami Beach

Miami Beach City Commissioner Mike Grieco is very upset over the announcement and has called for a special meeting Wednesday to cancel the scheduled aerial spraying.

Grieco said the aerial assault on mosquitoes could be a threat to everyone.

"It's a neurotoxin. We don't know the risks. It's been outlawed in Europe since 2012. It's something that has not been used in Miami, historically," said Grieco.
According to a spokesperson for Mayor Gimenez, Naled, which is EPA approved, has been used in Miami-Dade County since the 1970's.

On Tuesday, county workers started spraying the streets of Miami Beach with a chemical called BTI using specialized trucks. The city announced its use of Buffalo Turbine trucks in its fight against the Zika virus in an email Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at nospray.com:

Long-term exposure also caused AChE inhibition; reduced AChE activity occurred in dogs exposed orally to 2 mg/kg per day for 1 year and in rats exposed orally to the same dose for 2 years. In addition, the long-term study with dogs found that doses of 2 mg/kg per day also caused mineralization of the spinal cord. Naled’s breakdown product dichlorvos inhibits the activity in rats of a nervous system enzyme called neuropathy target esterase. In experiments conducted by biochemists at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (India), doses of 6 mg/kg per day reduced the enzyme’s activity by about 40 percent. Inhibition of this enzyme causes partial paralysis of the hind legs followed by incoordination. Toxicity Caused by Breathing Naled Naled is more potent when exposure occurs through breathing than when exposure occurs through eating contaminated food or drinking contaminated water. Toxicologists at the University of California found that inhalation was 20 times more toxic to rats than oral dosing (dosing through the mouth) of naled. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) came to a similar conclusion based on tests submitted to the agency by naled’s manufacturer: the dose required to cause cholinesterase inhibition through inhalation exposure was less than 1/6 of the lowest oral dose causing the same effect. An additional study by the University of California researchers mentioned above found that small droplets of naled (the size produced by ultra low volume sprayers often used in mosquito spraying) were about four times more acutely toxic than larger droplets. Dibrom Concentrate (EPA Registration No. 5481-480) contains the inert ingredient aromatic hydrocarbon solvent (Chemical Abstract Services number 64742-94-5), also called solvent naphtha. This solvent contains two aromatic hydrocarbons, naphthalene and 1,2,4- trimethylbenzene. Dibrom 8 Emulsive (EPA Registration No. 5481-479) contains naphthalene. Dibrom 8 Miscible (EPA Registration No. 34704-351) contains solvents4 whose ingredients can include naphthalene and trimethylbenzene. Naphthalene has been classified by EPA as a possible human carcinogen because it caused lung tumors in mice following inhalation.

Any way you cut it, this is nasty stuff, and I am quite certain that the product manufacturers contribute to politicians heavily to make sure it does not get off the EPA-approved list of mosquito abatement chemicals.

How the TPP Special Court Crushes Domestic Laws and Plunders the Public

A secretive super-court system called ISDS is threatening to blow up President Barack Obama’s highest foreign policy priority.

Investor-state dispute settlement — an integral part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal — allows companies to sue entire countries for costing them money when laws or regulations change. Cases are decided by extrajudicial tribunals composed of three corporate lawyers. Buzzfeed, in a multi-part investigation launched Sunday, called it “the court that rules the world.”

Although the ISDS process has existed for years, TPP would drastically expand it. The most common criticisms of the system are that it’s secret, that it’s dominated by unaccountable big-firm lawyers, and that global corporations use it to change sovereign laws and undermine regulations. That’s all true.

But here’s what most of the coverage and the critics are missing.

Use of dogs at North Dakota pipeline protest criticized

Jonni Joyce of Martin, S.D., who has trained professional dogs since 1988, watched video from Saturday’s protest at the Dakota Access Pipeline site and called it “a dark day” for her industry. Some protesters reported being bitten by the dogs, and video from Democracy Now! shows a German shepherd with its mouth covered in blood.

“Taking bite dogs and putting them at the end of a leash to intimidate, threaten and prevent crime is not appropriate,” Joyce said. “It was absolutely appalling. … For a private corporation to utilize dogs in this fashion is reprehensible.”

A Dakota Access spokeswoman declined to comment Tuesday about security personnel or the use of dogs.

The Tyranny of 9/11: The Building Blocks of the American Police State from A-Z

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. The citizenry’s unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security has resulted in a society where the nation is being locked down into a militarized, mechanized, hypersensitive, legalistic, self-righteous, goose-stepping antithesis of every principle upon which this nation was founded.

A 20th Century History of Infringement (On Gun Rights)

It’s fashionable at present, to assert that the Second Amendment makes some allowance for “reasonable regulation” of the individual right to own and carry weapons, even though the word “regulate” carries a very different meaning today than it did in the 18th century. It does no such thing. Instead, it outlaws any “infringement” of that right, which means sneaking up on it and nibbling it away, a little bit at a time. Regulation is infringement, and no gun law of any kind is tolerable to a free people.

America’s Debt-Based Paper Economy Crumbling: “Manufacturing Cities In Advanced State of Decay”

You might be thinking that government jobs are “good jobs”, but the truth is that they don’t produce wealth. Government employees are really good at pushing paper around and telling other people what to do, but in most instances they don’t actually make anything. In order to have a sustainable economy, you have got to have people creating and producing things of value. A debt-based paper economy may seem to work for a while, but eventually the whole thing inevitably comes crashing down when faith in the paper is lost.

Campaign Claims Pollen Caused Hillary’s “Worst Coughing Fit Ever”… Despite a Clear Forecast

By now, everyone should know. Hillary is either too sick, or too evil to be trusted in another position of power, especially the highest office in the land. Clearly there is a cover-up (and much more) at work here. Strangely, despite having very “low energy” support among the actual American population, Hillary’s every flaw is covered up, blacked out or justified by the corporate media. There remains the clear suggestion that this is not an election, per se, at all, but something more like an arranged marriage between a tyrant and a population that has lost to the levers of control. Hillary isn’t the only one who needs a doctor; the country is in desperate need of care, but the only provider in the area is under Obamacare.

As Alex rightfully points out, Soros & Co. aren’t “secret” about much of ANYTHING these days.

That is utterly insane. He should be locked up. We live in a time when the head of the U.N.’s migrant counsel is openly sharing his intent to use his authority to deliberately undermine the sovereignty of countries, for no other reason than that their population is naturally indigenous, or potentially more predisposed to being white.

40,000 Students In Limbo, 8,000 Employees Fired As ITT Suddenly Shuts Down

The long-running tragic saga of ITT Education Services, which was established nearly 50 ago and operates the ITT Technical Institutes for-profit college chain, finally came to a end this morning with both a bang and a whimper, when it announced that it is shutting down effective immediately, leaving the fate of 40,000 students currently enrolled in limbo, and some 8,000 workers without a job.

The company said the closure is due to an investigation and sanctions by the U.S. Department of Education.

"It is with profound regret that we must report that ITT Educational Services, Inc. will discontinue academic operations at all of its ITT Technical Institutes permanently after approximately 50 years of continuous service," the company stated Tuesday. "Effective today, the company has eliminated the positions of the overwhelming majority of our more than 8,000 employees."

Trump Campaign: FBI Should Release More Records on Clinton’s Email Investigation

Donald Trump’s campaign is calling for the FBI to release additional records on its interview with Hillary Clinton and the investigation into her use of a private, personal email server during her time as secretary of state.
The Trump campaign press release on Monday states that the FBI’s redacted interview notes, which were released late on Friday before the Labor Day weekend, raise questions on whether or not Clinton’s emails, which were under subpoena, had been intentionally destroyed.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Although, with this group of sociopaths, it always has been this way; it's just more transparent now, as Hillary gets caught in lie after lie after lie.

Clinton charities ignore law requiring them to disclose millions from foreign donors, by Mark Greenblatt

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has the power to force the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Health Access Initiative to publicly disclose the names of foreign governments and the millions they donate each year to the charities but he’s not doing it, a Scripps News investigation has found.

Schneiderman’s failure to require compliance with New York law and written instructions from his own office keeps the public in the dark about whether the foreign governments that gave money to the Clinton charities also had special access to Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state, experts in private foundation law say. New York state has long required more transparency from non-profits operating within its borders than many other regulators.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has just demonstrated that he is less than useless in the alleged pursuit of criminals; but offering attractive perks is part of how the Clinton Cartel gets away with what it gets away with (along with character assassinations coupled with covered-up real assassinations).

He had his price; it got met. Any questions?!?

The US is Sabotaging Venezuela’s Economy with a View to Triggering “Regime Change”

Now, President President Nicolas Maduro has extended a state of emergency in the country for another 60 days and accused Washington of plotting against him, as US intelligence has claimed the country is heading for meltdown.

The article would also claim:

An economic state of emergency has been in force in Venezuela since January, including rationing of food and other goods. The country is facing economic [crisis] largely because of the crash in oil prices.

The paper also admits:

…observers of the region point out that the US has a long history of seeking to interfere in the politics of Venezuela, as well as elsewhere in Latin America.

In addition to supporting those who ousted Mr Chavez in 2002, the US poured hundreds of thousands of dollars to his opponents via the so-called National Endowment for Democracy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported on 6 March, 2016, at presstv.com:

US President Barack Obama has renewed an executive order that declares Venezuela a threat to the US, extending sanctions against the South American country for one more year. In renewing the measure, Obama said on Thursday that the situation in Venezuela constituted an "unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States" and that he was declaring a "national emergency" to counter that threat. The Obama administration first issued the executive order against Venezuela in March of last year, which provoked a storm of controversy inside the country and a backlash throughout Latin America. Following last year’s decree, Obama ordered sanctions against seven Venezuelan officials, whose economy has been battered by the steep drop in global oil prices. Venezuela has condemned the measure as a sign of Washington’s perpetual hostility towards the Latin American nation. The National Emergencies Act is a tool American presidents possess that allows them to impose sanctions on a country under certain circumstances that go beyond what Congress has approved. The executive order also authorizes the US Treasury Department to impose additional sanctions on those found to have committed either "actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions" or rights violations against persons involved in anti-government protests, the White House said.

Would someone please take a moment to explain to me the ways in which Venezuela could possibly qualify as a "threat" against the United States, with a staggeringly bad economy, and their standard of living on an horrendous downhill slide?!?

This is pure madness, but an engineered madness, calculated to push the government of Venezuela over the edge, so that a more US-centric government can be anointed and installed.

Measles Vaccines Kill More People than Measles, CDC Data Proves

First published by Natural News and Global Research in February 2015

Parents concerned about their vaccinated children potentially contracting measles from unvaccinated children may want to consider the fact that the bigger health threat is technically the vaccine, not the disease itself. Comparative data provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reveal that nobody has died from measles in more than 10 years, while at least 108 deaths reported in VAERS during the same time frame have been linked to measles vaccines.

'Is That Not Genocide?' Pipeline Co. Bulldozing Burial Sites Prompts Emergency Motion

In a last ditch attempt to protect burial and prayer sites, North Dakota's Standing Rock Sioux late Sunday filed for a temporary restraining order to halt construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which they say has already caused "irreparable harm" to the sacred plots.

"On Saturday, Dakota Access Pipeline and Energy Transfer Partners brazenly used bulldozers to destroy our burial sites, prayer sites and culturally significant artifacts," said tribal chairman David Archambault II in a press statement.

"They did this on a holiday weekend, one day after we filed court papers identifying these sacred sites," Archambault added. "The desecration of these ancient places has already caused the Standing Rock Sioux irreparable harm. We're asking the court to halt this path of destruction."

The emergency motion came after security forces hired by the pipeline company attacked Indigenous demonstrators with dogs and pepper spray on Saturday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Routinely marginalizing and throwing indigenous Americans under the proverbial bus for profit is nothing new in this country.

However, if these protests grow and spread (and there seems to be no sign of Standing Rock Nation slowing down on this), I have to wonder just when, from a standpoint of scheduling, Dakota Access Pipeline and Energy Transfer Partners are going to instruct their thugs to terminate Standing Rock Sioux with extreme prejudice.

And if such a case ever goes to trial (and I would seriously doubt that it would), the narrative from the part of the security company, DAP, and ETP will be that "The Souix started this" and "we were afraid for their lives".

After all, Homeland Security has already cut water to their tribal area:

Homeland Security Cuts Water Supply To Native Tribes Protesting Pipeline

Congratulations, Department of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson: you must feel absolutely triumphant about that move!

India to replace some pellet guns with chilli-filled shells in Kashmir

Indian security forces will use shells full of a chilli compound as an alternative to shotgun pellets, to control crowds in Kashmir, the interior minister said on Monday, after widespread use of the weapons wounded thousands and inflamed public anger.

More than 3,800 people have been wounded and one killed by shotgun pellets since protests against Indian rule erupted in the disputed territory in early July, with more than 100 left partially or fully blinded, official figures show.

Doctors say most cases go unreported, and critics want the government to use less harmful ammunition.

"The committee has given its suggestions and the alternative of the non-lethal weapon has been suggested as PAVA shells," Home Minister Rajnath Singh told reporters as he led an all-party delegation to Srinagar, the summer capital of India's northernmost state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Home Minister Rajnath Singh: sir, forgive me, but you are missing the point entirely.

You have a restive population in Kashmir which has been promised an opportunity for a referendum on its status for decades, which the Indian government has never allowed to go forward.

IF India continues on this path of repression, and does not honor the principal of peaceful self-determination by allowing the Kashmiri people to choose their own fate, you may well have a civil war on your hands, and that could get ugly, and very quickly.

Such a civil war, when you have the logical, peaceful tools through which to avert it, would be an horrific, moral stain on one of the most diverse democracies on this planet.

Please tell me you don't want that, won't you?!?

Obama Threatens Cyber War on Russia Turning G20 Summit Into a Political Event

President Barack Obama took a hardline during discussions with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 Summit parroting the theory of Hillary and the Democrats that Moscow has nothing better to do than intervene in America’s election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, forgive me, but I must ask: was there any world leader at the G-20 who you FAILED to insult?!?

This ill-timed, petulant challenge to Putin is NOT going to gain you any cooperation whatsoever on those issues where the US and Russian governments desperately need to be working together.

And sir, in making that statement "And frankly, we’ve got more capacity than anybody, both offensively and defensively.", it is apparent that I need to politely remind you of the following, just in case you are suffering from SMD (selective memory disorder):

RUSSIANS DISABLE U.S. GUIDED MISSILE DESTROYER

Russian Jamming System Blocks All NATO Electronics Inside Bubble 600 Km in Diameter over Syria

Pentagon: Russia, China Closing Tech Gap In Conventional, Asymmetric Warfare

US Worried That Military Advantage Over Russia, China Getting Ever Smaller

US worried that Military Advantage over Russia and China are getting even Smaller

The last two articles were written this year, sir.

So, Mr. President, if, in fact, these incidents happened (which they did, under your watch, sir), and the US military is getting very worried about losing any kind of electronics and weaponry superiority against Russia and China, (which they are, under your watch), who, sir, is to blame for the US's sorry state of military weaponry and electronics?!?

You are, sir, as our Commander in Chief; and no amount of petulant dissing of a very significant world leader, Russian President Putin, will change this in any way.

Obama: 'Gaps of trust' preventing Syria cease-fire

President Obama said Monday that negotiations between the United States and Russia to reach a peace deal in Syria are hampered by "gaps of trust."

"We haven't yet closed the gaps in a way where we think it would actually work," Obama said after he met for 90 minutes with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Typically the tone of our meetings is candid, blunt, businesslike. This was no different."

Obama, speaking at a news conference in Hangzhou, China, at the end of the Group of 20 economic summit, said the two leaders failed to make a breakthrough for a cease-fire in the 5-year-old Syrian conflict. Obama said he instructed Secretary of State John Kerry to continue meeting with his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, to work toward an agreement in the coming days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

His Duplicitousness, President Obama, calls the inability to reach an understand about a peace deal in Syria the result of "gaps of trust", when the real reason for this problem is not this at all.

The Obama Administration's agenda is regime change in Syria, ASAP, and by any means necessary.

This is why the US has continued to fund, equip, and train the alleged "moderate rebels" (of which there are none).

The Russian Government's agenda is to stabilize the Syrian government, and get rid of all jihadists, no matter if they are US funded, sponsored, and equipped or not.

Russia is in Syria at the request of the Al-Assad government: the US government has not been invited.

The Russia military has done a pretty good job of getting rid of a large swath of rebels.

The big question, now that Turkey is cooperating with Russia, just where that is going to go from here, and what is the US going to do with the Kurds, now that they appear to have "outlived their usefulness" for the American government?!?

Sep 06 07:33

THE HOPE AND CHANGE CON?

Consider Obama’s record on human rights: one of the first steps he took upon getting into office was to backtrack on his own fervent vows to investigate and stop CIA torture in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo. Over 100 detainees had died in US custody, several in truly horrific circumstances. For instance, Gul Rahman was beaten, stripped, shackled to a wall at very low temperatures where he froze to death. Manadel al-Jamadi was beaten, shackled, and with five broken ribs, couldn’t breathe and died. An investigating army general concluded there was “no doubt” war crimes had been committed — the real question was would there be an accounting?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At every turn, and by every possible metric, President Obama has been an epic failure as our President.

I feel very frustrated by a political process which rarely gives the American people the best and the brightest choices.

Our elections are most generally a complete sham, electronically hacked, and a Kabuki-like exercise in the illusion of choice.

Because at the end of the day, we choose those candidates best vetted by the corporations to make sure their profits will continue to expand; We, the People, have become nearly completely expendable and irrelevant to this process.

This November's election, however, is critical to the future of this country.

There are things which are offsetting about Donald Trump, and yes, sometimes, he does behave a bit like a blunt instrument. Do I like everything he says? No. But do I think he offers the American people a choice of something which is NOT "business as Usual", which translates into politicians lining their pockets with corporate cash, and being completely tone-deaf to the real needs and concerns of We the People?!? Absolutely.

However, that being said, I encourage people to think about what a Clinton presidency will bring to our nation's future; more horrific corruption; more "pay to play" favors for foreign nations; more lies; more wars; more offshoring and outsourcing of American jobs; possible conscription; and a nation mired in poverty and inequality.

Oh, and BTW, did I happen to mention that every North African and Middle Eastern Country which donated to the Clinton Foundation, without exception, chemically castrates, jails, or executes its LGBTQ community, and permits the female genital mutilation of their women?!?

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

Prevalence of female genital mutilation by country

And all you Clintonistas out there, don't you dare tell me she "didn't know"; If I was able to do the research here, and make the correlations, why couldn't some hired researcher have come to the same conclusions I did, and tell her that there could be problems down the road from accepting this money from these countries, because somebody was going to discover this, and it could be a major headache for her campaign?!?

So, let's go to the second premise: she knew full well about these abuses, but took the money anyway.

How can one claim to be pro-LGBTQ and pro-women, and do this, knowing these abuses in these countries continued, unabated, and still accept their money at the Clinton Foundation?!?

The short answer is, Hillary Clinton has utterly no moral center: it is all about power, wealth, and using that power and wealth to amass more.

That's it, folks; Hillary Clinton is just one more empty, very expensive talking suit, ravenously glutenous for more power, more wealth, and more corruption.

THE NSA’S BRITISH BASE AT THE HEART OF U.S. TARGETED KILLING

For years, journalists and researchers have speculated about what really goes on inside Menwith Hill, while human rights groups and some politicians have campaigned for more transparency about its activities. Yet the British government has steadfastly refused to comment, citing a longstanding policy not to discuss matters related to national security.

Now, however, top-secret documents obtained by The Intercept offer an unprecedented glimpse behind Menwith Hill’s razor wire fence. The files reveal for the first time how the NSA has used the British base to aid “a significant number of capture-kill operations” across the Middle East and North Africa, fueled by powerful eavesdropping technology that can harvest data from more than 300 million emails and phone calls a day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) These extrajudicial assassinations have absolutely no place whatsoever in the basis of American law. And in President Obama's having so favored this technique, seeming to move this country away from due process internationally (which is at the heart and core of American jurisprudence), I have to wonder just how soon the US government and judicial system will move away from due process here at home.

I think this a fair, and legitimate, question.

What these assassinations seem to be very good at accomplishing, however, is encouraging more jihad, because they kill not only the target, but potentially the target's mom, kids, and fragile elderly uncles.

Perhaps this is the real point of extrajudicial assassinations; creating a state of perpetual war, which causes the military industrial complex to thrive.

Unfortunately, this is what our country has become; a fiscally bankrupt, geopolitical monster, hungry for the blood of foreign wars which brings obscene wealth to the warmongers and weapons makers.

I used to think I understood this country; not any more.

AUSTRALIA’S PRIME MINISTER, AN EX-GOLDMAN SACHS BANKER, WARNS G20 TO “CIVILIZE CAPITALISM”

Leaders of the world’s 20 largest economies have been warned that they must “civilize capitalism” as they seek to revive economic growth and address growing public scepticism about the benefits of free trade and globalisation.

Officials present during closed-door sessions said US president Barack Obama, UK prime minister Theresa May and her Australian and Canadian counterparts emphasised the need to placate public discontent. According to the officials, Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, a former Goldman Sachs banker, warned his peers of the need to “civilize capitalism”.

One G20 official said there was a high “degree of awareness” among heads of government that globalisation could be thrown into reverse. “It has taken the rise of populists across the world for them to realise this,” he said. “If we do not address the issue of fairness, [it] could endanger the global economy.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Malcolm Turnbull: you cannot "civilize" globalization, because at the end of the day, the millions of people who are disenfranchised will ultimately revolt against a system which insures they are marginalized, working at slave labour wages, and without the true benefits of a fully participatory society.

As we say in our colloquial American English, the deck, sir, is stacked in your and your colleagues' direction; and ultimately, that has to stop, or there will most likely be a world-wide revolution against a system so blatantly and transparently unfair to ordinary working people.

According to legend, folklore, and the 9/11 Commission Report, on the beautiful morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, 19 Muslim kamikazes commandeered four jumbo jets and flew them into the iconic WTC twin towers and the Pentagon. Later that day, WTC 7, a 47 story tall building, collapsed like an accordion due to scattered office fires and falling debris. The fourth plane was stopped from reaching its target, possibly the White House, by heroic American passengers who yelled, “Let’s roll.”

Dr. Drew Asked To Retract Hillary Health Comments - Received "Scary, Creepy" Phone Calls

Eight days after Board-certified medicine specialist and TV personality Dr. Drew Pinsky expressed his grave concern over Hillary Clinton’s health and the healthcare she was receiving, his popular show on HLN, the sister channel of CNN, was cancelled.

Appearing on KABC’s McIntyre in the Morning, Pinsky said he and his colleague Dr. Robert Huizenga became “gravely concerned……not just about her health but her health care” after analyzing what medical records on Hillary had been released.

Pinsky pointed out that after Clinton fainted and fell in late 2012, she suffered from a “transverse sinus thrombosis,” an “exceedingly rare clot” that “virtually guarantees somebody has something wrong with their coagulation system.”

According to sources close to Pinsky, the medicine specialist had been asked to retract his statements on the democratic nominee’s health and also received a series of nasty phone calls and e-mails over the his comments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to our world, Dr. Drew: this is precisely how the Clinton Cartel operates.

Right after Mike and I got married, word came out of DC that Vince Foster, an attorney for the Clintons, has just "committed suicide."

At the time, Mike had an image cap function on his editing bay at home, and printed out the picture of the dead body. As someone whose job was knowing what looks real in film, he immediately noticed what was wrong with the picture, in terms of it being a purported suicide.

He took the image with him to work the next day, and at lunch, was pointing out everything to his co-workers that seemed to be out of whack with what the image was supposed to represent, a suicide; some CNN personnel, who rented space in the same building, were listening, very carefully to what Mike had said.

Within 24 hours, he was fired from his job, and the death threats started coming to our home via phone.

But not only was Mike fired; every single computer animation studio within driving distance in Greater Los Angeles was ordered not to hire him, and that everything on his demo reel was an absolute and complete fake, stolen from other artists.

Fortunately, I was working at the time, and Mike got occasional gigs out of the country, so we were able to keep things together.

But at the end of the day, with the pressures of Mike not being allowed to work in the industry he helped create, coupled with the death threats, we made the decision to leave LA.

We exited quietly, and not even my closest family knew, for some time, that we had relocated to Washington State.

That Christmas, I called my brother and sister in law, and their two daughters and their mom were singing "Silent Night" in harmony over the phone; I was choking down tears, listening, because this was the first Christmas I couldn't be with my family in 20 years because of the threats and having had to move, and just kind of disappear for a while.

Mike ultimately got his film career back, working for a Japanese company here on Oahu which produced the first all computer-animated film.

So, do I have, perhaps, a legitimate reason for outrage at the Clintons, because Mike's honest questions about the state of Foster's body jarringly not matching the government's "official narrative", and that caused them launched a vendetta intended to destroy us, emotionally and economically?!?

One could say, yes.

But now the question is, as a Christian pacifist activist, what am I going to do about it?!?

I am going to use calm logic between now and the end of the Presidential campaign, and in the most logical and peaceful ways possible, I am working to document that this woman is owned by the Narcopracy, Wall Street, the bankers and the military/industrial complex.

As documented by her FBI testimony, she is "recklessly careless; as testified to by Huma Abedin, she is "frequently confused", and in her FBI testimony, responded " I cannot recall" 26 times.

Clinton Told FBI She Couldn’t Recall Key Details 26 Times

What has happened to us, and to Dr. Drew, is standard operating procedure for a Narcopracy (i.e., a drug cartel-funded government), where the truth of any situation is at odds with the official narrative, and the careers of the people telling the truth, are destroyed as thoroughly as possible.

And then, there is the Clinton Dead Bodies list. What presidential candidate (other than Bill Clinton) has a dead bodies list attached to them?!?

The Clinton Dead Bodies List

I am not after retribution here; I am for stopping one of the most dangerous political dynasties in this country from retaking the Oval Office, which will be an complete, unmitigated disaster for We the People.

Trump’s Labor Day Message As Unemployment Nears 25%: “The American Worker Is Getting Crushed” by Mac Slavo

Watch Donald Trump’s Labor Day message to Americans:

The American worker built the foundation for the country we love and have today. But the American worker is getting crushed.

Bad trade deals like NAFTA and TPP… such high and inexcusable taxes and fees on small businesses that employ so many good people.

This Labor Day let’s honor our American workers – the men and women who proudly keep America working. They are the absolute best anywhere in the world. There’s nobody like them.

I’m ready to make America work again and to make America great again. That’s what we’re going to do on November 8th.

Once you are in possession of such a legal document you have a lawful duty to be “hands off” in terms of any act that might modify any portion of that which is being sought. Tampering with same, whether that’s ordering someone to do it or doing it yourself, is nearly always a criminal offense in the form of either obstruction of justice, evidence tampering or both.

As Merkel Support Slumps, Benefit-Claiming Refugees Soar 169%

Following her humiliating loss in German state elections on Sunday, coming in third place to the anti-immigration, eurosceptic AfD party in her own home state, Chancellor Angela Merkel's support may well decline further. As Reuters reports, the number of migrants claiming German welfare benefits soared by 169 percent last year, data showed on Monday, a figure likely to further boost anti-immigrant groups such as AfD.

It appears the German electorate is none too pleased with Merkel's immigration policy... (as MishTalk's Mike Shedlock explains)

Merkel came in third place, to the anti-immigration, eurosceptic AfD party in her own home state in statewide elections.

"Who Is He To Confront Me?" - Philippines President Unloads On "Son Of A Bitch" Barack Obama

What was an embarrassing weekend for president Barack Obama, whose arrival at the G-20 summit in China was a case study in diplomatic humiliation, just turned even worse when on Monday, Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte warned the US president not to question him about extrajudicial killings, or "son of a bitch I will swear at you" when the two presidents meet at a summit in Laos in the coming days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, there is one thing to be said for Duterte: you know precisely where he stands!!

But for Obama to even BEGIN to lecture Duterte about extrajudicial assassinations, when the US has an assembly line going for such a process internationally, under Obama's "He Needed Killin' " decree (with actually no legal precedent to stand on), smacks of hypocrisy of the highest order.

Duterte had probably better start wearing his Kevlars; the US government, after this very public humiliation, could well decide that such criticism of President Obama should result in Duterte's "neutralization".

The Next Escalation: Turkey’s Invasion of Syria

The Syrian conflict has been an object study in murkiness and orchestrated dissimilitude. Its prolongation signals, not so much clarity as readjustment for the next intervention, the next interference. The big powers continue to soil themselves; smaller powers hope for some look-in in a potential redrawing of the Syrian map.

Turkey’s operation was bound to overcook the new found value between Ankara and Moscow. The Jarablus operation could hardly have had the imprimatur of Moscow. There was more than a touch of irritation registered in such channels as Kommersant, which tends to take its draught from semi-official, if not official sources. “The operation in Syria, not coordinated with Moscow, threatens to complicate the process of normalization of bilateral cooperation” agreed between Turkey and Russia in St. Petersburg on August 9.[4]

And who owns the patent on the virus? The Rockefeller Foundation!

The Secret Ingredients in Monsanto’s Roundup That May Be Killing Human Cells

Most scientific studies on Roundup (not sponsored by Monsanto) have focused on the effects of the primary ingredient. However, a French research study published a year ago revealed that the “inert” ingredients in Roundup actually increase its toxicity, even at very low concentrations. The study was led by Gilles-Eric Seralini, a molecular biologist at the University of Caen who has done extensive research into GMOs and pesticides. What they discovered was alarming, to say the least. For example, one of the “inert” ingredients in Roundup is polyethoxylated tallow amine, or POEA. This is a substance derived from the fat of bovine species. It is used as a surfactant, or emulsifier. Amazingly, the USDA allows POEA in “certified organic” products, and the EPA has determined that it is environmentally safe and poses no threat to public health.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason for the US government still allowing this poison to continue to be used in this country is very simple; the "alleged" representatives of this country do not give a damn about the health of its citizens, but only the profitability of those companies which contribute to their political campaigns.

Companies creating GMO and GMO-related products are big contributors to the political game in the US.

Having products which can cause hormone disruption, miscarriages, or birth defects around doesn't bother these people one whit, because before they became Congressional Representatives, they all have had their conscience surgically removed.

THEY know the dangers, so they steer clear of products like this, and make sure their families do as well.

But constituents who do not have this knowledge, and suffer horrifically because of from the effects of this poison, are simply...collateral damage to politicians; not even worth mentioning, or paying attention to.

We the People have become completely irrelevant in their thinking.

Sadr loyalists stage strike in Iraq for new govt

Thousands of civil servants loyal to firebrand Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr went on strike on Sunday in the latest sign of escalation against the Iraqi government.

On Friday, the Shia cleric urged employees -- except for security forces -- to stage a two-day strike on Sunday to pressure Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi to form a technocrat government.

He also called on Iraqis to launch a hunger strike inside mosques, shrines and churches as of Friday as a way of piling pressure on al-Abadi to replace his government.

According to Anadolu Agency reporter at the scene, employees have gathered outside government institutions waving anti-corruption banners.
“We have begun our strike in response to al-Sadr’s call,” Ibrahim Falih, one of the striking employees in the capital Baghdad, told Anadolu Agency.
“We will continue our strike until Monday in line with al-Sadr’s directions,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And I have to speculate what: happens when Al Sadr supports simply oust the Al-Abadi government, through a popular uprising, and hold elections in which Al Sadr becomes the new President of Iraq?!?

What will the US government do then?!?

Massively re-invade the country, because it picked a President not of its liking?!?

And how does the American President sell THAT to the American people, after all the blood and money spent to "anoint" the Al-Abadi government, after the assassination of Saddam Hussein?!?

And please note; to the best of my knowledge, no corporate presstitutes are going any where near reporting this to the American people.

But Americans need to know what is going on here, and right now, that Obama's foreign policy in Iraq is failing utterly, and if Al-Sadr winds up taking the reins of government, it's very possibly game over for the US in Iraq.

Syrian Kurds to Fight to Death to Stop Turkey 'invading Their Land'

The Syrian Kurdish leadership vows to defend their de facto state in north east Syria to the end, but is fearful of a growing understanding between the Syrian and Turkish governments in opposition to Kurdish separatism at a time when US support for the Kurds is faltering.

In an exclusive interview with The Independent, a senior Syrian Kurdish official says that the Kurds will fight to the death to stop Turkey “invading the region” and speaks of possible reconciliation between Damascus and Ankara on the Kurdish question.

Clinton emails wiped clean after NYT story

A number of Hillary Clinton’s private emails were erased weeks after The New York Times published a story reporting on her use of a private email server while secretary of State, according to notes from the FBI’s investigation released on Friday.

The notes include an entry that says that someone mistakenly deleted Clinton’s archived mailbox from her server and exported files.
The deletion took place between March 25 and March 31, the FBI learned in a May 3 interview. The name of the person who deleted the emails was redacted from the FBI’s notes.

“In a follow-up FBI interview on May 3, 2016, ------ Indicated he believed he had an 'oh s--t' moment and sometime between March 25-31, 2015 deleted the Clinton archive mailbox from PRN server and used BleachBit to delete the exported .PST files he had created on the server system containing Clinton;s e-mails,” the FBI notes released on Friday stated.

So, let me get this straight: were the wipes ordered AFTER the computer information was subpoenaed?!?

US Preparing Electronic Warfare for 'Force-on-Force Conflict in Europe'

Having looked at the Russian military’s cyber warfare modernization, the United States rushed to develop similar capabilities that could be used in the event of a “large force-on-force conflict in a place like Europe.”

On August 11, the US Army announced the creation of the Army Rapid Capabilities Office to prevent “capability gaps” that have formed within the American military in recent years.

“Our adversaries are modernizing at a rapid rate, and in some cases, our capabilities are inadequate to keep up, to maintain our edge,” Maj. Gen. Walter E. Piatt, who is in charge of the operations in the new office said in a statement. "We need to … make sure that they are offset from us, not the other way around.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And why and how have these "gaps" evolved?!?

Because the US weapons and electronics contracts procurement process is thoroughly incestuous.

The same weapons and electronics defense contractors who get the contracts, "lubricate" the political campaigns of congressional representatives who green light these contracts in the first place with generous donations .

How that generally translates, once equipment is field deployed, is that this equipment does not function as advertised; is hideously over budget; or, by the time it is field deployed, is already obsolete.

I am a Christian pacifist activist, who hates the idea of war as a way for the US government to resolve its geopolitical differences, and constantly exhorts this government to resolve disputes through hard-won, good faith negotiations.

That being said, when our military needs the best in weaponry and electronics possible, they should never have to do with anything less, period, end of discussion.

PROTESTERS, INCLUDING CHILDREN, MAULED AS PRIVATE MERCENARIES ATTACK NATIVE AMERICAN PIPELINE PROTEST

A private security firm guarding the highly controversial construction of $3.8 billion oil pipeline turned mercenary on Saturday, unleashing vicious attack dogs against a sizable crowd of peaceful protesters — including women and children.

Members of the Standing Rock Sioux and at least 100 other Native American nations as well as activists and advocates peacefully chanted “water is life” while guards held dogs nearby to intimidate the crowd. Without warning, these security henchmen showered the demonstrators with pepper spray and released the dogs — at least six people were bitten, including a young child.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, this is how corporate Amerika, represented by Dakota Access Pipeline, censors free speech and peaceful protests; with private security companies, using dogs to bite children and horses, and pepper spray.

These people are damned lucky that they have not been killed...yet.

One has to wonder just when the executives of parent company Energy Transfer Partners will order their private mercs to "exterminate with extreme prejudice."

Unfortunately, however, if these protests do not abate, I am sure that there will be a moment when that happens

The slaughter of innocent indigenous Americans is nothing new to the American experience, in the quest for corporate profits, as you will find when you google "trail of tears".

Think, the Navi in James Cameron's brilliant anti-war film "Avatar", and you are almost there.

The following statement was made by the Morton County Sheriff's Department on 3 September:

Private Security Officers Ambushed and Assaulted by Protesters

But I have two questions on this:

1. Were these alleged "protesters" actually affiliated with the protest movement per se, or were they agents provocateurs who did these acts to make the movement look violent?!?

2. If, in fact, these attacks happen, where, please is the video of said attacks?!? And the short answer here is, nowhere.

Making protest movements look violent and awful has a very long history in this country; ask any peaceful protester who was protesting the Vietnam War.

Microsoft thought of the children and decided to ban some browsers

Microsoft has updated its family filters to block some rival browsers and says it's done so to think of the children.

The changes are part of its bid to end the compatibility clashes caused when non-Microsoft browser barons push updates, breaking the restrictive Windows 10 family settings.

The Reg understands that clashes allowed Chrome, Firefox, and others to access blocked sites. But Microsoft's not named the browsers kids won't be able to run any more, saying only that "Most commonly used browsers don't have web filtering. To keep your children safer, we'll automatically block these browsers on their devices."

.01% US rogue state’s national anthem poetic disclosure and choice: ‘No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave’: Do YOU stand for this?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tip: Robert Barsocchini

Professional football quarterback Colin Kaepernick is expressing in physical action what many Americans are catching-up to recognize:

We don’t stand for what the US is doing.

What Americans stand for in the US national anthem is a theme of defending freedom from attack by the same empire who attempted to disarm Americans in 1775, then arrest and execute our Founders, and keep Americans as servile work animals to the world’s most powerful empire. We stand for ideals of being a land of the free and home of the brave.

But the US national anthem’s third verse to damn enslaved humans from even hoping for freedom is psychopathically opposed to US values. Francis Scott Key’s verse from 1814 (historical context):

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave

Hillary lets children ask her questions — for $2,700 apiece!

Maybe the media should pose as children with a stacks of 27 $100 bills in little their outstretched hands so they, too, can have an audience with the queen. For a donation of $2,700, the children (under 16) of donors at an event last month at the Sag Harbor, N.Y., estate of the hedge fund magnate Adam Sender could ask Mrs. Clinton a question. A family photo with Mrs. Clinton cost $10,000, according to attendees.

My List Of The Ten Worst U.S. Presidents

At any rate, with my Facebook post I made my list without explanation. I will use this column to share a little bit of the reasoning behind my selections. So here goes: my top ten worst presidents in U.S. history:

1. Abraham Lincoln (Republican)

Without an ounce of doubt in my mind, Abraham Lincoln is America’s absolute worst President. He did not free a single slave; but what he did do was begin the process of enslaving free men. It is no hyperbole to say that Lincoln truly governed as a dictator, not as a President.

In our Orwellian tragic-comedy US rogue-state empire approaching the most obscene of Roman imperial corruption, this 7-minute video is one of the analyses showing multiple cell phone cameras recording a staged/fake event because Hillary Clinton not in any of those cameras’ videos:

But wait, it gets worse.

Clinton has gone 273 days and counting of refusing to talk with media at a press conference. This prima facie demonstration of damning incompetence of being US President is again tragic-comically piled-on like adding clowns into a tiny car by Clinton’s Press Secretary promising press conferences if she is elected President. The press secretary’s best bullshit spin:

“The amount of (media) interaction can only go up!”

Labor Day 2016: OBVIOUS benefits of monetary reform & public banking include full employment to optimize infrastructure, which also causes lower overall prices as infrastructure improves total economic productivity

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Note: You may wish to print an article like this: a "Black Swan event" is coming that will shock perhaps 2/3 of the population, but not we who have taken care to learn our most important factual histories. If the event is an economic crash, our .01% "leaders" might do their best to remove documentation of economic reforms, like this, from public access in order to herd We the People into a reset parasitic debt system owed to them.

I wrote about Labor Day in 2014 being an Orwellian “holiday” because:

Defiant Obama tells Britain it WILL be at the back of the queue for a US trade deal after Brexit as world leaders gather at G20 

Barack Obama has insisted the UK will have to wait for a trade deal with the US as he warned action is needed to stop the Brexit process 'unravelling' the special relationship.

The America president sparked fury during the EU referendum campaign by cautioning that the UK would go to the 'back of the queue' for a transatlantic deal if it voted to leave.

The comments, at a press conference alongside David Cameron in April, were roundly condemned as an intrusion into domestic politics.

Obama Extends 9/11 “Emergency” War on Terror Powers as US Says Al Qaeda No Longer Target

By Justin Gardner

Fifteen years ago the U.S. government, in response to 9/11, took the unprecedented step of declaring war on a tactic. Waging a ‘war on terror’ gave the president and his neocon cabal vast new powers to make the world a battleground and sacrifice constitutional rights.

Key to this was the declaration of a “State of National Emergency” on September 14, 2001. This, combined with the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), gave the executive branch dictatorial powers...

Google-owned YouTube is of course a private company and can enforce any rules it likes, but with the advent of such corporations becoming so large (more powerful than countries in some cases), in addition to them insisting on being treated as a public utility, the move is a massive stab in the back for the content creators who helped build the platform in the first place.

Where Has Hillary Clinton Been? Ask the Ultrarich!

Mr. Trump has pointed to Mrs. Clinton’s noticeably scant schedule of campaign events this summer to suggest she has been hiding from the public. But Mrs. Clinton has been more than accessible to those who reside in some of the country’s most moneyed enclaves and are willing to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to see her. In the last two weeks of August, Mrs. Clinton raked in roughly $50 million at 22 fund-raising events, averaging around $150,000 an hour, according to a New York Times tally.

Hillary Clinton's campaign announced Thursday their candidate would begin flying on a larger plane with room for media to tag along starting on Labor Day.

More Shocking Vaccine News: Common Vaccines Contaminated with Glyphosate!

Folks, I have written about the problems with vaccines in previous blog posts. Now, a new serious contamination problem with our vaccines has been identified.

Researcher Anthony Samsel has published five peer-reviewed articles on the herbicide Glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup®).

A yet-to-be published sixth paper found various commonly-used vaccines contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate.

Yes, you read that correctly: Our vaccines are contaminated with an herbicide that the World Health Organization characterised as “probably carcinogenic to humans.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why does this not surprise me?!?

It's not about health, that these vaccines are created; it is about profit, and profit only.

FLASHBACK: Bill Clinton Collected Donations, Then US Missile Tech Shipped To China

Former President Bill Clinton approved the sale of sensitive U.S. missile technology to China following donations from a key missile manufacturer to his campaign, in a move prescient of the Clinton Foundation’s “pay-to-play” activities.

Bernard Schwartz donated about $1.5 million to the Democratic Party and Clinton’s 1996 campaign for reelection between 1994 and 1998. Schwartz, who was at the time chairman of Loral Space & Communication Ltd., seems to have used his influence to persuade the Clinton administration to switch the licensing authority for missile exports from the Department of State to the Department of Commerce, as the latter was more vulnerable to political influence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice how wonderfully China's war technology has evolved, and how quickly?!?

You can thank Bill Clinton and Loral for that.

All the Chinese needed were the "building block" technologies, and then they were off and running. Here are some examples of the evolution in their war weapons and technology.

Pentagon: Chinese Military Modernization Enters “New Phase”

Coming soon to the South China Sea: Beijing’s best weapons of war

Chinese ballistic missile submarines should definitely cause concern

What President Clinton did, with approval of this "transfer technology" from Loral, was to compromise American security, and it was all for his love of money.

And there is a word for this: it's called treason.

Of course, such a thing will not happen until pigs fly, but this man should be lawfully accused, his case prosecuted through the American system of due process, judged by a jury, convicted, and spend what is left of his life in a prison which is NOT a "Club Fed."

White cop who body-slammed black girl faces no charges

A white US police officer, whose outrageous actions against a 16-year-old African-American girl captured on cameras last year, will not face criminal charges, a prosecutor says.

South Carolina prosecutor Solicitor Dan Johnson decided on Friday not to criminally charge officer Ben Fields, who was seen on videos violently handcuffing the girl at Spring Valley High School in Columbia last October.

Fields, the school resource officer was seen slamming the girl and wrapping his forearm around her neck before dragging her from behind her desk and throwing her across the classroom to handcuff her. He called on the girl to surrender her mobile phone but she refused.

The incident made headlines and caused outrage across the nation last year.

In a 12-page court report, the prosecutor, however, said he found no probable cause to charge Fields. Johnson only expressed concerns over the “manner” in which Fields handled the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess this teen was bloody lucky that she didn't get shot; but this is what education in Amerika has become, when brutal police corporal punishment for the most minor of infractions is the "new normal".

Parents, if you possibly can, please get your kids out of public schools and home school them NOW!!!

Public schools in this country have become intellectually useless; brutal; and a form of prison for our kids.

No child deserves this, period, end of discussion.

Clinton email scandal: ‘Whole world should know about her crimes & what she’d like to do’

How was it possible that the FBI could not find several devices used by Hillary Clinton to send emails? Was her “could not recall” defense an attempt to avoid responsibility? Will Clinton be charged after she failed to protect top-secret information?

Experts spoke to RT and answered these and other questions.

All the information about incidents where she was involved, like the one in Benghazi, should be revealed to the public, said Lew Rockwell, who is chairman of the Ludwig von Mises Institute. People should know why she “doesn’t recall” the key details, while having perfect health, he added.

The "Oh Shit" Moment: Hillary Wiped Her Server With BleachBit Despite Subpoena

The story of how Hillary's "personal" emails came to be deleted using, the now infamous, BleachBit is quite the tale. Below we attempt to piece together how the story unfolded per the recent FBI disclosures.

On March 25, 2015, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member had a "conference call with President Clinton's staff." Apparently, in the days following that call, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member had an "'oh shit' moment" when he realized he had forgotten to wipe the PRN server clean as he had been instructed to do back in December by Cheryl Mills.

Therefore, sometime within the 6 days after a call with "President Clinton's Staff," that PRN server was wiped clean using BleachBit despite the subpoena from the House Select Committee on Benghazi received weeks earlier on March 4, 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The hubris and duplicity demonstrated by this woman knows no bounds.

She will lie under oath; tamper with evidence, and obstruct justice with impunity, both as a private citizen, as she is right now, and as President, if she wins/steals the election.

Clinton Told FBI She Couldn’t Recall Key Details 26 Times

Hillary Clinton told FBI agents that she could not recall issues related to her email server at least 26 times, according to an 11-page document released by the FBI on Friday.

Clinton’s memory lapses are frequent during the interview, marked often by agents as “could not recall” and “did not remember.” But the “could not recall” remarks are often related not to long-distant emails, but things she should perhaps definitely recall.

At least 26 times, Clinton couldn’t recall issues raised by the FBI. Clinton told FBI agents she couldn’t even remember any briefing or training by State “related to the retention of federal records or handling of classified information.”
And Clinton told the FBI she could not recall any briefing after her December 2012 fall that left her with a concussion, an admission that will surely stoke concerns about Clinton’s health and physical fitness to serve in the job of president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is really serious stuff.

Not that I don't have an occasional memory lapse, but 26 times Clinton was unable to remember, or recall, what had gone on?!?

This scares me; do we really want a Commander in Chief who doesn't remember that they either declared war, or signed a peace treaty, the day before?!?

The short, logical answer is, HELL, NO!!

Turkey’s New Role: From NATO Lapdog to Emerging Empire?

If Turkey is to emerge as a regional empire, it will have to leave the Zionist axis and find a solution to the Kurdish question in conjunction with Syria and Russia. It is currently beginning to appear that previous secret plans agreed upon by Ankara and Paris to carve out a Kurdish state in Northern Syria may have to be abandoned. As the French escalate bombing of Raqqa in Syria in the wake of the Nice terrorist psyops, Turkey could be facing an acute state of emergency.

Some Hindsight: The Lies That Dumped America Into the Syrian War

Checking out the news these days, it might seem pretty clear why the U.S. is at war in Syria: destroy ISIS. That is almost certainly the way the two main presidential candidates will see it during their upcoming first debate, in a rare point of agreement.

The funny thing is that ISIS did not become the reason for what now is a major regional war until late in the game.

If we rewind about three years, the original justification was to “rid the world of the dictator,” Syrian president Bashar Assad. The US involvement was started under the pretext that Assad was using chemical weapons against the other side in what was once confined to a civil war. American declared Assad thus had to go to avoid a genocide and humanitarian disaster.

FYI: If you read no further, remember anytime a politician uses the word “genocide” these days we’re about to be dragged into another conflict that will morph into a quagmire.

Clinton to FBI: Didn't know parenthetical 'C' stood for classified

Hillary Clinton told the FBI that she thought classification markings in the paragraphs of her emails at the Department of State were to organize messages in alphabetical order, according to the FBI’s newly released report on her private email server.

“When asked what the parenthetical ‘C’ meant before a paragraph within the captioned email, [Clinton] stated she did not know and could only speculate it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order,” read the FBI’s notes from the interview.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

I am having a palm to forehead moment, at warp velocity, upon reading this!!

So now, the Democrats have presented the American people with a candidate who is, by the characterization of FBI Chief Comey "Reckless"; by the characterization of Huma Abedin, "easily confused"; and through this FBI testimony, "completely clueless" in the proper protocol for handling classified information?!?

And THIS was the bloody best the US's "Democratic machine" could deliver to the US voters in 2016?!?!

I am disgusted and offended at this; Clinton stole the Presidential candidacy from Bernie Sanders; now she wants to steal the White House, using any means necessary.

Please remember this in November, and notice that her physical and mental state appear to be horrifically compromised by these mysterious illnesses which have manifested in so many ways on the campaign trail.

Islamic militants Abu Sayyaf blamed for deadly Philippine bomb attack

Duterte, who had been mayor of Davao for most of the past two decades, declares a national “state of lawlessness” to give military extra powers to conduct law enforcement operations.

Philippine authorities on Saturday blamed a notorious group of Islamic militants for the bombing of a night market in President Rodrigo Duterte’s home town that killed at least 14 people.

An improvised explosive device tore through the bustling market in the heart of Davao city and close to one of its top hotels just before 11 pm on Friday.
Authorities said the Abu Sayyaf, a small band of militants that has declared allegiance to the Islamic State group, most likely carried out the attack in response to a military offensive launched against it last week.

The office of the president texted and confirmed that was an Abu Sayyaf retaliation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like a civil war has begun in the Philippines.

I have to wonder just what draconian steps Duterte will take to stop the violence, if in fact, he can.

Lagarde calls for forceful reform

International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde called on Thursday for stronger policies to avoid the low-growth trap, before embarking on her trip to China for the G20 Leaders Summit.

The G20 Summit, to be held in eastern China's city of Hangzhou on Sept 4-5, is aimed at finding ways to boost global economic growth.
Lagarde said low growth, high inequality and slow progress on structural reforms are among the key issues that G20 leaders will discuss at the gathering.

"This meeting comes at an important moment for the global economy. The political pendulum threatens to swing against economic openness, and without forceful policy actions, the world could suffer from disappointing growth for a long time," she said in an article dated Sept 1 but released to the press on Wednesday under embargo.

John Pilger: Provoking nuclear war by media (longread)

The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague has quietly cleared the late Serbian president, Slobodan Milosevic, of war crimes committed during the 1992-95 Bosnian war, including the massacre at Srebrenica.

Far from conspiring with the convicted Bosnian-Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, Milosevic actually "condemned ethnic cleansing", opposed Karadzic and tried to stop the war that dismembered Yugoslavia. Buried near the end of a 2,590 page judgement on Karadzic last February, this truth further demolishes the propaganda that justified Nato's illegal onslaught on Serbia in 1999.

U.S. CLUSTER BOMB USE GOES UNABATED IN YEMEN AND SYRIA

Cluster bombs, which have been used since World War II to kill and maim indiscriminately, were outlawed under an international treaty that was adopted in 2008.

Most of the world’s countries have signed the treaty, but not the United States and Russia, where many of the bombs were made. A report released Thursday in Geneva found that the weapons continued to be used with near impunity in the conflicts in Syria and Yemen.

In Syria, at least 13 kinds of cluster munitions — dropped from the air or launched from the ground — have been used since 2012, said the report, the seventh annual Cluster Munition Monitor (pdf) , which found “compelling evidence” that Russia had used the weapons since the start of its military intervention last September in support of Syria’s embattled government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government sells cluster bombs to our "Partner in War Crimes, Saudi Arabia", and then wonder if they will be used with discretion in Yemen?!?

Here's an image of what cluster bombs do to toddlers, this time, courtesy of the US military in Iraq, in 2003:

Iraq: U.S. Cluster Bombs Kill Children in Baghdad

This child had a name; it was Ali. Due to shrapnel in his brain, he was not expected to survive.

This is precisely what is happening to kids and adults in Yemen and Syria, due to cluster bomb attacks.

So please tell me, and yes, I know this image is enough to make you want to throw up; is this the legacy you want for American foreign policy in Yemen and Syria?!?!

The term “conspiracy theory” was invented and put into public discourse by the CIA in 1964 in order to discredit the many skeptics who challenged the Warren Commission’s conclusion that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald, who himself was assassinated while in police custody before he could be questioned. The CIA used its friends in the media to launch a campaign to make suspicion of the Warren Commission report a target of ridicule and hostility. This campaign was “one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time.”

DEBTORS’ PRISON FOR KIDS: POOR CHILDREN INCARCERATED WHEN FAMILIES CAN’T PAY JUVENILE COURT FEES

Many states are incarcerating poor children whose families can’t afford to pay juvenile court fees and fines, a report published Wednesday finds, which amounts to punishing children for their families’ poverty—and that may be unconstitutional.

Although the growing practice of incarcerating adults who are unable to pay municipal and court fees and fines has been documented for several years, as Common Dreams has noted, the latest report from the Juvenile Law Center is the first in-depth examination of the practice within the juvenile justice system.

The report, “Debtor’s Prison for Kids? The High Cost of Fines and Fees in the Juvenile Justice System” (pdf), documents the results of a survey of 183 people involved in the juvenile justice system—including lawyers, family members, and adults who had been incarcerated as children in the juvenile justice system—in 41 states.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absolutely insane, and nearly guarantees that if and when these children leave these child and youth incarceration facilities, they will be emotionally and mentally scarred for life, and unable to participate as functioning adults as they grow up.

PARENTS WHOSE CHILDREN GOT NARCOLEPSY AFTER SWINE FLU JAB SUE THE DUTCH STATE

Parents whose children became seriously ill as a result of a swine flu vaccination have launched a legal claim against the Dutch state, reports ANP.

The case involves 14 children who developed a severe sleeping disease following their vaccination in 2009, and personal injury lawyer John Beer told EenVandaag TV news that they are suing the state.

The claim is related to GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccination, Pandemrix, and Beer cited international research suggesting a link between this jab and narcolepsy, a rare and incurable condition which causes people to fall asleep suddenly and unexpectedly.

‘Firstly, we demand that the government recognizes this and secondly, we want a financial solution,’ he said. He claims that parents of children with these problems have received compensation in Sweden, Finland, and Norway although not as yet in the Netherlands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although this is only going to happen when pigs fly, pharmaceutical companies which produce vaccines which can injure or kill, should be sued out of existence.

NAVY COVERED UP AFGHAN SEX SLAVE PROBLEM TO PUNISH MARINE – DOCUMENTS

US Navy lawyers have advised against hearing a Marine’s appeal on the premise that it would grant attention to an Afghan sex slave scandal. The officer sent a classified memo via his own email to warn fellow Marines of danger, shortly before three were killed.
In the summer of 2012, Captain Brian Donlon reached out to a fellow Marine Corps officer – Major Jason Brezler, then in the USMC Reserves – to ask about Sarwar Jan, a police chief in Afghanistan’s Helmand province with a reputation for corruption and keeping boys as sex slaves. Brezler answered by sending a dossier on Jan, using his Yahoo email account. Donlon warned him the document was classified, and refused to open it; Brezler reported the violation to the military authorities himself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, it was "propagandistically inconvenient" to mention that some of our "Best Afghani Buds" indulge in child sex abuse?!?

No. This behaviour should be shouted from the rooftops, so that Americans really know what American and NATO troops are not supposed to either see, or mention.

Taking a ban on Confederate flag displays to an absurd extreme

When California legislators passed a law two years ago banning state government from selling or displaying Confederate flags, the measure seemed silly and not particularly meaningful.

The ancient and offensive battle flag of the Confederacy was not flown regularly, if ever, on state property. And why would it have been? But the Capitol gift shop was selling replica Civil War-era money depicting images of the Stars and Bars that was offensive to at least one lawmaker’s mother.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, one person gets offended and we all have to change our lives?!?

If you find t a flag or anything else offensive, JUST TURN YOUR HEAD AND LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!!!

Homeland Security Could Steal What She Can’t Win: “Election Process Is Critical Infrastructure” by Mac Slavo

With the announcement that Homeland Security will oversee elections, it is clear that a fair election will not be found, and our leaders will once again be selected for us.

Hillary has not been an easy sell to the public; in fact, people in polls tend to find her untrustworthy, dishonest and unlikable.

So how will she win the election anyway, despite a noticeable lack of enthusiasm from the middle and working classes for her candidacy?

The plan is laid bare. The votes from the overwhelming pro-Trump crowds won’t count; instead, it will be officials within DHS who are loyal to the Democratic party that will monitor elections for fraud, and ‘keep watch’ over the electronic machines.

Because there will be a hack. As Zero Hedge reported:

Per the Washington Examiner, this sort of scenario is precisely what Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson, discussed at an event hosted by The Christian Science Monitor earlier this month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an absolute nightmare scenario shaping up here.

If the election appears to have been stolen from Trump, here are the scenarios I see potentially happening:

1. There could be violent protests in the streets of this country; and as always, I encourage calm, and never endorse violence, because violence is what State and Federal officials are prepared to stop, and with extreme prejudice.

2. There could potentially be a military coup.

3. Although Hillary may attain the position of President of the US, it could be that any one of the several mysterious ailments plaguing Hillary could potentially put her into a situation where Article 25 would have to be invoked in order to insure the continuity of the US government.

4. Because of the spectacular, epic fail of President Obama's economic policy failures, including the cold, hard reality that over 94,000,000 people in this country cannot find jobs, (but these numbers are not counted by the Department of Labor Statistics, because these people "have been out a job too long"), there could be a massive stock market crash, followed by massive social unrest, leading to the implementation of martial law in this country.

I do not know precisely what November 9th will bring to this country, the day after the elections; but if these elections are seen as crookedly stolen from Trump, all hell may break loose.

This is one of those moments when I am absolutely, very grateful that Mike and I live in Hawaii.

The Secret Global Court: Why Corporate Criminals & Corrupt Politicians Desperately Want TPP

Obama needs to ensure he gets well compensated after leaving office for a job well done protecting, defending and further enriching the global oligarch class. This is precisely why he’s so adamant about passing the TPP during the upcoming lame duck session of Congress, when he knows “representatives” who no longer face reelection can be coerced or bribed into voting for this monumental public betrayal.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) ins’t really a free trade deal, it’s a way for global oligarchs to consolidate, grow and protect their enormous wealth. The investor-state dispute settlement system (ISDS) is perhaps the most nefarious and objectionable aspect of the deal, with this shadowy court system being used to accomplish the following for the super rich and powerful:

1) Eliminate sovereign risk from their investments.

2) Earn money by scouring the world for potential ISDS “opportunities” and then speculating on them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The interesting question (which, BTW, no one seems to be asking Obama on this bill) is, why is the TPP including countries which allow slave/child labor and human trafficking?

As documented below, this is a common thread in the business practices of the countries which are very much wanting to be members.

TPP Reduces Human Trafficking and Child Labor to misdemeanors

Is free trade more important than ending forced labor?

List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor

U.S. Workers Should Not Be Pitted against Child Labor in Vietnam

Did Obama Administration Downplay Malaysia Slavery To Grease Trade Deal?

In his petulant rush to get TPP through a lame-duck Congress, President Obama is, again demonstrating that he is just as beholden to his corporate cronies as are the Republicans, and he considers American workers... utterly irrelevant.

FBI releases report on Clinton email investigation

The FBI on Friday released a detailed report on its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, including the summary of its three-hour interview with the former secretary of State.

The report totals 58 pages, although large sections have been redacted.
In July, FBI Director James Comey announced that he did not recommend charging Clinton with willfully mishandling classified information.

While Comey called the former secretary of State “extremely careless” for using the server, he repeatedly said that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, do Americans want - or need - a presidential candidate who has been characterized as "extremely careless" by the head of the FBI?

She was recently described by Huma Abedin, her closest aid as "often confused".

Clinton ‘often confused’ says staffer in email

So tell me, folks: do we really want a President who is both "extremely careless" and "often confused" ?!?!?

Of course, the short answer here is, HELL NO!!

Mumia Abu Jamal’s Health is Precarious: His Motion for Immediate Care: DENIED

Federal Judge Robert Mariani has denied the preliminary injunction motion in “Abu-Jamal vs. Kerestes” that demanded life-saving hepatitis C treatment for Mumia Abu-Jamal.

The reason Mariani gave is this: “The persons against whom injunctive relief may be granted are not parties to this lawsuit”.

He stated that because the specific members of the Department of Corrections’ (DOC’s) hepatitis C Care Committee – were not named in the lawsuit this motion will fail. The memorandum by Mariani says that “if the proper defendants had been named”, Mumia may well have prevailed in his request for immediate lifesaving treatment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Put simply, the US government wants Mumia Abu-Jamal to die in prison, because the case against him was utterly, and poorly, manufactured, and the US government cannot admit to making mistakes.

Retired general calling Israel ‘world champion of occupation’ sparks outrage

Former OC Central Command Maj-Gen (res) Maj.-Gen. (res.) Gadi Shamni’s characterization of Israel as “bringing occupation to an art form” angered politicians on the Right on Wednesday.

Speaking at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, Shamni talked about his time in charge of Central Command when he was responsible for the West Bank, and describing himself as “the occupation general.”

“We are world champions of occupation, and we’ve brought it to an art form,” Shamni said, “and we have to ask ourselves, is that what we want to be?”

Shamni said that Israel will never agree to jeopardize its security interests, while the Palestinians will never accept an “endless occupation,” so the only solution is agreed-upon separation between the sides.

Israel should take calculated risks to improve its strategic position, he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Environmental Protection Minister Ze'ev Elkin: there were people living on what became Israel before the Israeli nation was declared: they are called Palestinians.

Here are images of Palestinian coinage, demonstrating that Palestine existed long before it was declared the nation of Israel.

Images for palestine coins

That Major-General Shamni should be vilified for stating the obvious is a true demonstration of how wretchedly apartheid Israeli has become in the 21st century.

US Arms Makers Invest in a New Cold War

The U.S. military has won only a single major war since the end of World War II (the Gulf War of 1990-91). But U.S. military contractors continue to win major budget wars in Congress nearly every year, proving that no force on earth can resist their lobbying prowess and political clout.

Consider the steady march to victory of the biggest single weapons program in history — the planned purchase of advanced Lockheed-Martin F-35 jets by the Air Force, Navy, and Marines at a total projected cost of more than $1 trillion.

The Air Force and Marines have both declared the Joint Strike Fighter ready for combat, and Congress is now forking over billions of dollars a year to acquire what is slated to become a fleet of 2,400 jets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hype does not win wars; a combination of weapons that actually work, coupled with brilliant tactics, and a thorough knowledge of one's enemies, win wars.

As stated later in this article:

Think tanks like the Lexington Institute are prime movers behind the domestic propaganda campaign to revive the Cold War against the diminished Russian state and justify weapons programs like the F-35. As Lee Fang observed recently in The Intercept, “The escalating anti-Russian rhetoric in the U.S. presidential campaign comes in the midst of a major push by military contractors to position Moscow as a potent enemy that must be countered with a drastic increase in military spending by NATO countries.” Thus the Lockheed-funded Aerospace Industries Association warns that the Obama administration is failing to spend enough on “aircraft, ship and ground combat systems” to adequately address “Russian aggression on NATO’s doorstep.” The Lockheed- and Pentagon-funded Center for European Policy Analysis issues a stream of alarmist reports about Russian military threats to Eastern Europe. And the highly influential Atlantic Council — funded by Lockheed-Martin, Raytheon, the U.S. Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines, and even the Ukrainian World Congress — promotes articles like “Why Peace is Impossible with Putin” and declares that NATO must “commit to greater military spending” to deal with “a revanchist Russia.”

That the warmongers in the military/industrial complex are driving US foreign policy is no secret; but unfortunately, the "cold war" after which they lust, could very quickly turn into a hot war around the world, in places like the South China Sea; Ukraine; Syria; and beyond.

The F-35 is symptomatic of everything that is completely wrong with the US government's weapons procurement program, and demonstrates, painfully clearly, the incestuous relationship between weapons manufacturers, and those congressional representatives who green light their contracts, yet get heavy elections contributions from those same weapons manufacturers.

This has to stop, for the weapons procurement programs to function effectively.

But unfortunately, this "much-challenged" F-35 could well prove the US military's "Waterloo", if deployed without getting these engineering deficits sorted in short order.

And Lockheed-Martin should pay for their fixes out of their own pocket, having gouged the American taxpayer for a fighter jet costing one trillion dollars which does not function.

The Other Speech: Hillary the Hawk Spreads Her Wings: Did she threaten to attack Russia?

Toward the end of her speech, Hillary really bares her fangs and gives us an indication of what life is going to be like under the Clinton Restoration. While claiming that she’ll only use military force as “a last resort” – the typical rhetoric of warmongers – she hints at what the future holds:

“You’ve seen reports. Russia’s hacked into a lot of things. China’s hacked into a lot of things. Russia even hacked into the Democratic National Committee, maybe even some state election systems. So, we’ve got to step up our game. Make sure we are well defended and able to take the fight to those who go after us.

“As President, I will make it clear, that the United States will treat cyber attacks just like any other attack. We will be ready with serious political, economic and military responses.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the woman who did not password protect her emails is on a mission to attack Russia for allegedly hacking into DNC servers?!?

Shocking Deposition: Hillary Clueless On Using Computer Emails

Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2016/05/26/shocking-deposition-hillary-clueless-on-using-computer-emails/#ixzz4J7KMGn2T

Clinton is owned by the Neocons; the military/industrial complex; the banks, and Wall Street.

All of these entities profit from war.

So you see, for someone like Hillary Clinton, the excuse for the war doesn't matter; it is that the war is achieved by any means with which she, and the people around her, think they can "sell" such a war to the American public.

But as a public which has become war weary and war skeptical, having been fed the lies that Saddam Hussein possessed WMDS, the American people are not going to be quick to sign off on yet another war, considering how "spectacularly well" the declared, and undeclared wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, and Libya have gone.

Perhaps Huma Abedin could mention that to her.

And then, there are the horrific risks of such a war, which the US may well lose.

Right now, the US military doesn't have the money; the weaponry; the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

The weapons procurement process is utterly incestuous; the same Congressional representatives who "green light" weapons and equipment contracts are also the same representatives who are well-funded by those same companies for election campaigns.

What this means to our men and women in uniform is that, by the time the weapons and equipment are field-deployed, they are generally not working as advertised; they are late, with huge cost over-runs; and many times, by the time they get delivered to our military are already obsolete.

I would frankly, very strongly caution Hillary's handlers to not allow her to go down this road toward a war against Russia, if she wins/steals this election; the results could well be both horrific... and irreversible.

The Election Has Been Hacked: The Dismal Reality of Having No Real Electoral Choices

The FBI is worried: foreign hackers have broken into two state election databases.

The Department of Homeland Security is worried: the nation’s voting system needs greater protection against cyber attacks.

I, on the other hand, am not overly worried: after all, the voting booths have already been hacked by a political elite comprised of Republicans and Democrats who are determined to retain power at all costs.

The outcome is a foregone conclusion: the police state will win and “we the people” will lose.

The damage has already been done.

The DHS, which has offered to help “secure” the nation’s elections, has already helped to lock down the nation.

US exceptionalism: How dare the EU demand US companies pay more tax!

Boy - what a load of anger. How dare these Europeans expect US multinationals to pay corporation tax at the same rate as everyone else! Don’t they know that US multinationals are different!

What we're seeing here is another aspect of US exceptionalism in the neoliberal/neocon era. The same exceptionalism which decrees the US has the right to bomb/invade countries at will, in blatant contravention of international law - also decrees that its right and proper giant US corporations should be given preferential treatment by foreign tax authorities.

U.S. imposes sanctions on 'Putin's bridge' to Crimea

Companies building a multi-billion dollar bridge to link the Russian mainland with annexed Crimea, a project close to the heart President Vladimir Putin, were targeted by the United States in an updated sanctions blacklist on Thursday.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury added dozens of people and companies to the list, first introduced after Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014 and expanded over its support for separatist rebels in the east of the country.

As well as multiple subsidiaries of Russian gas giant Gazprom (GAZP.MM) and 11 Crimean officials, the Treasury named seven companies directly involved in the construction of the 19 km (11.8 miles) road-and-rail connection across the Kerch Strait, dubbed "Putin's bridge" by some Russians.

Chief among those were SGM-Most, a subsidiary of lead contractor Stroygazmontazh which is already under U.S. sanctions, and sub-contractor Mostotrest (MSTT.MM), one of Russia's biggest bridge builders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder: precisely when, please, did Reuters get so sloppily fast and loose with the truth?!? This used to be at least a partially responsible news organization at one point; but apparently, has decided it's simply better off just regurgitating the US government's narrative.

The truth of the issue is as follows:

1. Yanukovich, the legitimately elected President of Ukraine was ousted by a pro-Western coup in 2014.

How and Why the U.S. Government Aided a Coup Led by Neo-Nazis in Ukraine

2. Poroshenko was then elected as President of Ukraine. This billionaire had a shady past, and a reputation for indulging in business practices more crooked than a dog's hind leg.

Weapons, Prostitutes and Drugs –These are Things Petro Poroshenko is Associated With

3. At the moment when Poroshenko was "elected", Crimean officials realized that there was no legitimate government in Ukraine. They therefore held a referendum as to whether they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to join. In an observer-vetted free and fair election, the Crimeans voted to petition the Russian Federation to allow Crimea to join it.

Crimea referendum: Voters 'back Russia union'

4. Russia then accepted both Crimea and Sevastopol as members of the Russian Federation.

Treaty to accept Crimea, Sevastopol to Russian Federation signed

Neither Russia not Crimea did anything wrong here; in fact, the Crimean referendum, and subsequent joining of the Russia Federation, is enshrined in the charter of the UN, which champions "peaceful self determination."

There was no annexation of Crimea by Russia here, period, end of discussion.

And for the US State Department to continue punishing, and demonizing Russia, and Russian companies for something they didn't do, is ham-fistedly, pig-headedly, and pig-ignorant stupid; do they really think Americans are so idiotic that they can't piece together what the true timeline of events here was, and how they came about?!?

They just collectively attempted to insult my intelligence with this codswallop, and I do not take that lightly!!

Oh, and one last blow to the lie that the putsch in Ukraine was not sponsored by the US: Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland said, publicly, that the US had spent over 5 billion dollars to destabilize the Ukrainian regime:

Victoria Nuland's Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to "Subvert Ukraine"

So, Reuters, I really hope I have cleared up the confusion for you.

Simply put, enabling DC's lies by not doing your fact-checking. doesn't cut it any more; and continuing to lie for the US government is fast making you....completely irrelevant.

Irrelevancy has a way of making things and companies obsolete; sort of like the dribble glass and whoopee cushion, which have long passed from the American scene.

If this is the future you see, and wish, for Reuters, please continue with what you're doing.

CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS CALL ON FBI TO INVESTIGATE THEIR POLITICAL ADVERSARIES’ KREMLIN TIES

Leading House Democrats on Tuesday sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey, which they promptly published, asking the agency to investigate whether the Trump campaign and the Russian government have entered into a joint plot “to interfere with the U.S. presidential election.” Although the House Democrats say they do not know whether such a conspiracy with Moscow exists, they say that “serious questions have been raised” — specifically about whether Trump supporters worked in tandem with Kremlin agents to hack Democratic Party computer systems, and “about overt and covert actions by Trump campaign officials on behalf of Russian interests.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why has it become "disloyal" to criticize US foreign policy, or advocate for better relationships with Russia?!?

Did I just wake up to the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, where free speech in this country is no longer protected?!?

Folks, Mc Carthyism has just re-inserted its ugly face into American politics, courtesy of Hillary Clinton's campaign; this is absolute desperation on the cusp of madness, but it is all they have, looking at all the epic fails of the Obama Administration.

Sep 02 08:12

Barack Obama hates the Second Amendment, and so does Hillary Clinton.

They have disgustingly, shamelessly exploited terrible tragedies to try to take away our God-given right to bear arms, as enshrined in our Bill of Rights. They even tried to blame Islamic terror attacks like the Orlando gay nightclub shooting on guns. There is no episode they won’t blame on inanimate objects that can’t do anything on their own.

Kim Jong-un executes education minister by firing squad for not SITTING properly during a meeting

Kim Jong-un has executed a senior North Korean official by firing squad because he did not sit properly during a meeting.

Education minister Kim Yong-Jin, 63, was shot dead after his 'bad sitting posture' in parliament incurred the wrath of the North Korean dictator.

The slouching vice premier was interrogated and found to be an 'anti-revolutionary agitator' before his execution in July, a South Korean official said.

Mainstream Media: Defeat Trump by Attacking His Supporters

It is no secret that the mainstream media has decided that the threat presented by a possible Donald Trump presidency is so grave that it has suspended even the illusion of objectivity. Writing in The New York Times, media columnist Jim Rutenberg granted permission to his fellow journalists “to throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century, if not longer, and approach it in a way you’ve never approached anything in your career.”

The Observer and others have detailed the ways in which traditional media companies and even tech companies have colluded to maximize negative coverage of Trump and minimize negative coverage of his opponent, Hillary Clinton. But it doesn’t end there. As Rutenberg described, many journalists feel the need to “move closer than you’ve ever been to being oppositional.”

Obama Granted Iran "Secret" Nuclear Deal Exemptions, Despite Claiming Otherwise

One of the recurring criticisms of Obama's landmark Nuclear deal with Iran is that in Obama's scramble to get a formalized agreement, he had implemented many loopholes allowing Iran substantial leeway far beyond what was disclosed for public consumption. And, in the latest blow to US foreign policy under the Obama administration, a new report confirms precisely that. According to Reuters, the United States and its negotiating partners agreed "in secret" to allow Iran to evade some restrictions in last year's landmark nuclear agreement in order to meet the deadline for it to start getting relief from economic sanctions.

The report is to be published on Thursday by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, said the think tank’s president David Albright, a former U.N. weapons inspector and co-author of the report. It is based on information provided by several officials of governments involved in the negotiations, who Albright declined to identify.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of COURSE, President Obama lied; that's what sociopaths do.

I used to believe that, perhaps, on the Iranian deal, he had, finally, done something right; at the moment, I stand firmly disabused of that notion; but the question is, what does the US and the P5+1 do NOW, to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear-armed nation, in the most peaceful and honest way possible?!?

US Manufacturing Crashes Into Contraction In August, Election Uncertainty Blamed

Following China's rising (official) and tumbling (Caixin) PMI data overnight, US Manufacturing prints this morning were both weak. PMI modestly disappointed, dropping from July's 52.9 and August's preliminary 52.1 to 52.0 final with new orders and employment sliding. Markit's explanation is simple: "there's anecdotal evidence to suggest that this at least in part reflects a slowing in the economy in the lead up to the presidential election." We guess productivity has been declining for the same reason for the last 9 months? ISM had already rolled over in July, and August's collapse (from 52.6 to a contractionary 49.4) has erased the dead cat bounce hopes of Q2. Across the board, ISM factors deteriorated with new orders plunging.

Dead cat bounce is dead again...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's not "electoral uncertainty" which is driving this contraction: people and smaller companies just don't have the money to buy products, period, end of discussion.

Death in Yemen: British Weapons Sales to Saudi Arabia, and the “Proper Use” of Illegal Arms

The death toll in Yemen is now so high that the International Committee of the Red Cross is donating “entire morgue units” (1) to hospitals still standing, having so far escaped the illegal Saudi assault, backed, advised and armed by the US and UK.

“The hospitals were not able to cope,” said Rima Kamal, a Yemen-based spokesperson for the Red Cross. “You could have more than 20 dead people brought into one hospital on one single day. The morgue capacity at a regular hospital is not equipped to handle this influx of dead bodies.”

“It is not that common for the ICRC to donate morgues,” she observed. “The fact that we now do is telling of the size of the human tragedy in Yemen.” The ICRC has donated body bags and refrigerated storage facilities to three hospitals with: “More in the pipeline.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The leadership in the UK should be ashamed of this trade in weapons, and the war crimes committed by the Saudi military against the people of Yemen; of course, that "being ashamed" reaction only happens when one has not had one's moral conscience surgically removed.
