The Clinton Body Count Grows By One More

According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head“. Eberwein’s death has been listed officially as a “suicide.”

Eberwein, who had previously acknowledged his life was in danger, was a relentless critic of the Clinton Foundation’s activities in Haiti, where he served as director general of the government’s economic development agency, Fonds d’assistance économique et social, for three years.

Eberwein was going to testify to the following:

Only 0.6% of donations generated by international donors to the Clinton Foundation with the sole purpose of directly assisting Haitians actually ended up reaching the hands of Haitian relief organizations.
Only 9.6% of the donated funds ended up with the Haitian government.
The remaining 89.8%, was funneled to non-Haitian organizations.

Tony Blair insists Britons don't want Brexit but his OWN opinion poll reveals we DO

TONY Blair has been left red–faced after he insisted voters would choose a different outcome if the Brexit referendum was held again, only to be contradicted by an opinion poll that he commissioned.

The survey for the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change found that 56 per cent of those questioned believe “Brexit must mean Brexit”, and 75 per cent stated the UK’s immigration policy is too open.

The 1,000 people surveyed were given three options, a hard Brexit, a soft Brexit or a second referendum, with almost 80 per cent choosing one of the two Brexit options.

More than 40 per cent favoured a clean break, with just under 40 per cent choosing a soft Brexit and around 20 per cent plugging for another vote.

Coffman, who held a Ph.D in Forest Science, was once instrumental in stopping the ratification of a biodiversity treaty which would have triggered the eventual disappearance of private land ownership through piecemeal use restrictions.

High blood pressure warning: Swapping sugar for sweetener in tea may be more harmful

However, the new research has revealed that artificial sweeteners may have a negative effect on metabolism, gut bacteria and appetite.

The study authors looked at 400,000 people for an average of ten years.

They found no consistent effect of artificial sweeteners on weight loss, despite this being a major selling point - in fact they tended to make people gain weight.

Dr. Ryan Zarychanski, study author from the University of Manitoba, said: “Despite the fact that millions of individuals routinely consume artificial sweeteners, relatively few patients have been included in clinical trials of these products.

“We found that data from clinical trials do not clearly support the intended benefits of artificial sweeteners for weight management."

The Times story was centered around the following paragraph:

«Erik D. Prince, a founder of the private security firm Blackwater Worldwide, and Stephen A. Feinberg, a billionaire financier who owns the giant military contractor DynCorp International, have developed proposals to rely on contractors instead of American troops in Afghanistan at the behest of Stephen K.

CONGRESS TRYING TO SNEAK THROUGH MAJOR GIVEAWAY TO DEFENSE CONTRACTORS

The National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, is practically the only bill Congress passes on time every year. The last 50 NDAA’s, which authorize funds and set policy for the Department of Defense, have reached the president’s desk without a holdup. Education, healthcare, and jobs can wait, but supporting the troops — actually, supporting the defense contractors who make the weapons — must never face a delay. The bill even goes through a regular process, with dozens of amendments and bipartisan votes. It’s like nothing else in Washington.

Though the US doesn’t publicly affirm these bases exist, this would be the third fully-working military airbase in Rojava,as the US had previously built bases in Kobane and Rumailan. The bases are largely being used to fly gear to the Kurdish forces, but also could support some smaller military planes.

UAE ‘hacked’ Qatari government social media and news sites to plant fake news

THE United Arab Emirates arranged for Qatari government social media and news sites to be hacked in late May in order to post fiery but false quotes linked to Qatar's emir, prompting a diplomatic crisis, the Washington Post reported yesterday, citing US intelligence officials.

The emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, had been quoted in May as praising Hamas and saying that Iran was an “Islamic power,” the Post reported.

In response, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain cut diplomatic and transport ties with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of supporting terrorism.

Qatar said in late May that hackers had posted fake remarks by the emir, an explanation rejected by Gulf states.

The Post reported that US intelligence officials learned last week of newly analysed information that showed that top UAE government officials discussed the planned hacks on May 23, the day before they occurred.

Nearly all “warming” evidence found to be based on temperature “adjustments” rigged by people

Recently, a controversy over temperature adjustments has spiraled out of control — with proof of records being changed to support Obama’s climate policies and the global warming narrative.

A new research report — published June 27, 2017, by two scientists and a veteran statistician — found adjustments made to global surface temperature readings by scientists in recent years are totally inconsistent with published and credible temperature data.

“The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST [global average surface temperature] data sets are not a valid representation of reality,” the study authors explained. “In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.”

NHS staff at the University Hospital of Wales (UHW) are said to be “distressed beyond belief” after losing a legal fight against private enforcement firm Indigo when they did not pay for their parking tickets, leaving them with huge bills.

The hospital has 6,000 staff, but the car park has only 1,800 spaces so many have had to park in spots reserved for visitors.

One nurse must pay back £150,000 in fines after a court ruled that it would be £128 for every unpaid ticket, in addition to £26,000 in court fees.

The Suffering of Children in Mosul Revealed as Daesh Is Snuffed Out

Children “lived in the dark like rats” while Daesh ruled in Mosul, an aid worker claims. Many of them had hidden from the terrorists and the ensuing war to retake the city. Consequently, they are suffering from rickets, a lack of Vitamin D and are very thin.

Experts believe these children will suffer long term psychological trauma not only from the battles that raged in the city but the day-to-day cruelty they witnessed at the hands of Daesh. The charity Save the Children surveyed 65 kids and found that they were enduring what professionals call “toxic stress”. A staggering 90% had lost close family members and the majority had nightmares whether asleep or awake

Prof Smith was submitting archival evidence demonstrating that the Department of Health always knew that mothers of children in the Tuam Home were recorded as “In the Magdalen”.

In the letter, Prof Smith informed Senator McAleese of a circular he had discovered relating to a 1948 Government survey which recorded the number of ‘illegitimate’ children who were born and died in Mother and Baby Homes and County Homes for the year ending March 31, 1947.

Consider the Grenfell Tower inferno as an expression of a new kind of class war, but not a class war as we have known it–between organised workers, political parties and capital–but between ordinary citizens and the local fiefdoms of the capitalist state as increasingly, big business has taken over the running of what’s left of our public and collective life, through ‘outsourcing’, public-private-partnerships and what have you, where making a profit is the bottom line, not serving the public.[1]

Worse still, in order to justify this thievery on a national/international scale that runs to trillions, the state and its partner the corporate/state media, has had to resort to the ‘trusted’ Victorian method of blaming the victim for their own poverty, their own shortcomings, their own misery. Ergo, Grenfell.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Brits seem to be in as much of a quandary over these kinds of issues as are their American cousins.

But the first thing that needs to happen to the people who managed Grenfell Tower is a forensic audit, showing where every bit of money they collected, from every resource, actually went.

The money was obviously never put into the building to make it more safe; the original building engineering was totally lousy, in order to "value engineer" it to be constructed as cheaply as possible, and to hold as many people as humanly possible, in small, cramped spaces.

Pence Is the Source of the Leaks to the NYT and WAPO

Uranium One Clinton Deal, A National Security Nightmare

The monkey is now on the back of Hillary Rodham Clinton with her Russian ties to the Uranium One deal she signed-off on as Secretary of State, encouraged by a donation of 145 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation.

Bill Clinton’s Moscow speaking engagement with the Kremlin connected Russian Investment Bankto help Uranium One stock regain losses during the sell-out of the company by Canada, constitutes a criminal conspiracy. Russia now controls 5% of America’s uranium…..

The “back story” from the New York Times (April 2015) has got to come out from the darkness…..a detailed series of illegal events being held-down by Obama / Clinton and their illegal acts against America’s interests, a National Security scandal being spun by the DNC via the fakestream media.

REVEALED: Why you’re more likely to be a criminal if you’re born in the 70s

Researchers at Princeton University and Brown University uncovered a link between exposure to lead in peoples’ younger years and criminal behaviour.

The material was a key component in paint during the 1960s and 1970s, before it was banned from house paint in 1976.

Leaded gasoline was also phased out between 1979 and 1986.

Exposure to lead in preschool years significantly increases the likelihood children will be suspended or incarcerated during school, the study found.

They correlated falling rates of antisocial behaviour with the decline in lead paint used over the past few decades.

Researchers discovered children aged up to six-years-old who had been exposed to lead showed displayed more aggressive behaviour, had trouble paying attention and exhibited poorer thinking skills and impulse control.

Links have been established between getting into trouble in school and going on to be involved in crime as adults.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to wonder if this kind of exposure leads to the utter craziness we see on display in Washington DC these days!!

Chinese villagers fight for return of ‘stolen’ 1,000yo mummified monk

Chinese villagers are fighting a court battle in the Netherlands to retrieve a 1,000-year-old statue containing the remains of a Buddhist monk.

The unusual artefact, which villagers say was stolen from their homeland, allegedly went missing from a temple in Yangchun in China’s Fujian province in 1995. It was not seen again until it was spotted in a museum in Hungary as part of a visiting exhibition two decades later.

House passes $696.5B defense policy bill

The House on Friday overwhelmingly passed a wide-ranging, $696.5 billion defense policy bill that goes far above President Trump’s budget request.

Lawmakers voted 344-81 on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which broadly lays out policy and spending rules for the Pentagon and the military branches.

The bill would authorize $621.5 billion for the Pentagon's base budget and Energy Department nuclear programs and $75 billion for war funding, known as the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) account. In addition, the bill takes $10 billion in OCO dollars to pay for base budget needs.

Only eight Republicans voted against the legislation, which passes Trump’s defense request of $603 billion. Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.), John Duncan (Tenn.), Tom Garret (Ga.), Louie Gohmert (Texas), Morgan Griffith (Va.), Andy Harris (Md.), Thomas Massie (Ky.) and Tom McClintock (Calif.) were the Republicans voting no.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would suggest that Congress will most probably repeal the BCA.

Mystery Of Ancient Roman Concrete That Still Stands Strong – Has A 2,000-Year-Old Engineering Puzzle Been Solved?

Scientists now think they have finally cracked Romans’ secret of durable marine concrete. If this is the case, we could use a similar technology to build modern sea defenses which withstand time and tide.

According to Professor Marie Jackson, a geology and geophysics research professor at the University of Utah who studied these intriguing ancient Roman buildings, our ancestors used a mix of volcanic ash, lime (calcium oxide), seawater and lumps of volcanic rock to hold together the structures.

Israeli settlers set up illegal caravans on Palestinian village lands near Bethlehem

Israeli settlers on Sunday reportedly set up five illegal structures, described by locals as “caravans,” on lands belonging to the village of al-Khader south of Bethlehem in the southern occupied West Bank.

Ahmad Salah, coordinator of the Anti-Settlement Committee in the village, told Ma’an that a group of settlers set up the new caravans in an attempt to expand the existing illegal outpost of Sde Boaz, built in the Wadi al-Ghawit area of al-Khader.

“We Should Be Bombing Russia Massively”

So says Paul Begala, the former highly-paid professional liar and excuse maker for Bill Clinton the serial rapist/sexual assaulter. “We” should be bombing Russia, says the unhinged CNN commentator, because Donald Trump, Jr. took a meeting with a Russian woman who does not speak English but wanted to talk about allowing Americans to adopt Russian babies. The entire Deep State establishment has gone insane with diseased brains.

RON PAUL WARNS "CENTRAL BANKERS ARE ALWAYS WRONG...ESPECIALLY BEFORE A BUST"

The global dollar-based monetary system is in serious jeopardy, according to former Texas Congressman Ron Paul. And contrary to Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen’s assurances that there won’t be another major crisis in our lifetime, the next economy-cratering fiat-currency crash could happen as soon as next month, Paul said during an interview with Josh Sigurdson of World Alternative media. Paul and Sigurdson also discussed false flag attacks, the dawn of a cashless society and the dangers of monetizing national debt.

Paul started by saying Yellen's attitude scares him because "central bankers are always wrong - especially before a bust."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Someone on Dr. Paul's site has been reading WRH!! :-)

Or, possibly, great minds think alike!!

Soldier Accused of Pledging Support to ISIS Believed Conspiracy Theories

A U.S. soldier accused of wanting to commit a mass shooting after pledging loyalty to the Islamic State group believed the moon landing was faked, questioned the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and thought the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job coordinated by the U.S. government, according to a former Army bunkmate.

Army Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang was ordered held without bail in federal court in Honolulu Thursday after a brief detention hearing. Kang's court-appointed attorney Birney Bervar did not contest his client's detention but said after the hearing that he will ask for a mental health evaluation.

A "turning point" for Kang's mental state seems to be a 2011 deployment, Bervar said: "He's a decorated American soldier for 10 years, goes to Afghanistan and comes back and things start going off the rails."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kang appears to be "another notch on the belt" of undercover agents who "groomed" him to turn on his country,then arrested him immediately.

I would tend to believe that ultimately, because this kid was turned and groomed to do what he did, this case will get thrown out of court, as so many cases like it before have been thrown out of court.

The way the story is written is also a cloddish attempt to "poison the well" against independent media.

And please remember, folks; it was the corporate media which assured you the Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, to lie you into supporting a war against Iraq for US control of its oil fields, and to insure that Iraq's oil was only was only sold in US dollars.

U.S. Taxpayers Fund Heroin Vaccine, Despite U.S. Government Being The Biggest Heroin Dealer

Many of us just pay our taxes on a yearly basis and have absolutely no idea where they’re going. Are they funding new medical research? War? The elite’s agenda? The reality is that your taxpayers’ dollars support all of these things and more, despite the fact that you may not knowingly support them yourself. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society titled “Development of a Clinically Viable Heroin Vaccine” has been making recent headlines, hinting at fewer heroin users in the United States. The irony here is that taxpayer dollars are being spent to develop a vaccine against drug users supporting the very drug trade the U.S. government and the medical industry have so heavily invested in maintaining.

Homeland Security says Americans who don't want faces scanned leaving the country "shouldn't travel"

Congress allowed the government to scan faces of foreign nationals to keep track of visa overstays. But now that's set to be extended to Americans, worrying some privacy advocates.

But now the agency wants to scan the faces when anyone -- including Americans -- leaves the US.

"The only way for an individual to ensure he or she is not subject to collection of biometric information when traveling internationally is to refrain from traveling," says the document.

Six major US airports, including Boston, Atlanta, and New York's Kennedy Airport, have completed trials started under the previous Obama administration, with an aim to have the system fully operational by next year. CBP says that it won't know exactly who is overstaying visas until face scans are also carried out at US land and sea ports.

The assessment says facial scans will be deleted after two weeks, but can be retained for longer.

Privacy advocates argue that it's inching towards a surveillance state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...Inching toward a surveillance state"?!? We're already there, folks!!

Welcome to the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika: your face scan, please!!

And BTW, if the Department of Homeland Security really wants to stop terror in its tracks, here is precisely the way to do it: stop mucking about in other people's countries, to expropriate resources to which the United States and its corporate minions have absolutely no moral right; stop regime changing countries to insure they are western-centric, and stop insisting that those resources only get sold in US dollars.

You're welcome!! :-)

DOUBT SURFACES ABOUT ‘SUICIDE’ CLAIM OF CLINTON INVESTIGATOR

A Wall Street analyst who spoke to Peter Smith the day before he reportedly committed suicide told the Daily Caller News Foundation there were no indications the Chicago businessman and anti-Clinton political investigator was about to take his life.

“He may have been a fantastic actor but I certainly didn’t leave that phone call saying, ‘oh shit, the guy’s at the end of his rope,’” Charles Ortel, a Wall Street investment banker and market analyst, told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s (TheDCNF) Investigative Group.

“This does not seem like a settled story. It made perfect sense to me he might have died of natural causes, but little chance he would have killed himself,” Ortel said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The guy was most likely Arkancided; the Clintons and their minions most probably have people on speed dial who do this every day for a living.

LEAKED DOCUMENTS 'REVEAL SAUDI AND EMIRATI CROWN PRINCES' SUPPORT FOR AL-QAEDA AND IS IN YEMEN'

The nine-page document was published by Egyptian newspaper al-Badil in April - before the outlet was banned by Cairo - accusing Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi's Mohammed bin Zayed of providing aid to the two extremists.

The communique - sent to Qatar's foreign minister on October 26, 2016 - outlines the minutes of communications between Qatar's ambassador to Washington and the US Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence.

The New Arab could not independently verify the authenticity of the documents.

"The Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence reported that the information available to them indicated that Prince Mohammad bin Salman has been in constant communication with the figures listed in the report," the leaked notes read.

"The prince has managed, according to the Under Secretary, to assemble out of some groups loyal to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula [AQAP] a force against the Houthis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these reports are true, I find myself...totally unsurprised; this is absolutely typical behaviour for both Saudi Arabia, and Abu Dhabi.

With the support of state law enforcement, a Massachusetts Democratic state representative has filed a drug war bill that would send violators to prison for a mandatory minimum two years (five years for a second offense) and allow police to seize their vehicles—all without the presence of any actual drugs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American comedian Ron White has a marvelous one-liner; "You can't fix stupid."

And this is about as stupid and counter-productive as a proposed allegedly "anti-drug" piece of legislation gets.

I have to wonder if Representative Hays is absolutely pig-ignorant, or is experiencing a bad case of SMD (selective memory disorder) on what happened in Portugal when they decriminalised small amounts of drugs for personal use.

Portugal decriminalised drugs 14 years ago; and now, hardly anyone dies of an overdose.

Their focus was not punitive, but on counseling and rehabilitation; and it worked.

I also have to wonder how much the guy is getting in campaign contributions from the private prison industry; the pharmaceutical industry; and the alcohol industry, that he is pushing so hard in this direction.

Feds Concede Can’t Search Cloud Data at Border for US Citizens

NBC News reported last week that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) concedes it lacks authority to access data stored only on the cloud when its agents examine the electronic devices of US citizens crossing the border. The NBC news report, Border Patrol Says It’s Barred From Searching Cloud Data on Phones, was based on a CBP Letter, dated June 20, sent in response to written questions posed to CBP acting commissioner Kevin McAleenan by Senator Ron Wyden. Last April, Wyden and Senator Ron Paul introduced the Protecting Data at the Border Act that require border officials get a warrant based on probable cause before they could to search or seize cellphones at the border.

Tony Blair says Brexit must be stopped to halt harm to UK

There's a chance Britain won't leave the European Union, former Prime Minister Tony Blair said Saturday, arguing that stopping Brexit is "necessary" to avoid severe economic damage.

In an article published by Blair's Institute for Global Change, he wrote that EU leaders might be willing to "reform and meet us half way" to keep the U.K. in the bloc. He said that might include compromise on freedom of movement - a key EU principle that conflicts with Britain's goal of placing limits on immigration.

Blair said conditions in Britain and Europe had changed since the U.K.s EU membership referendum in June 2016. Europe has some new leaders, including France's centrist President Emmanuel Macron. And in Britain, the Conservative government suffered a setback in last month's election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tony Blair, a word, please; whatever the EU is paying you to spew this codswallop, it cannot possibly be enough.

In a world where you live with armed guards and drivers, it is impossible for you to see at all in what kind of a world of hurt, and physical danger, unchecked immigration has left your brother and sister Brits.

And until you have your "Buddha on the road" moment on this issue, you will continue to be totally irrelevant to the current discussions on the directions Brexit should take.

RUSSIA & CHINA DECLARE ALL OUT WAR ON US PETRODOLLAR — PREPARE FOR EX

The formation of a BRICS gold marketplace, which could bypass the U.S. Petrodollar in bilateral trade, continues to take shape as Russia’s largest bank, state-owned Sberbank, announced this week that its Swiss subsidiary had begun trading in gold on the Shanghai Gold Exchange.

Russian officials have repeatedly signaled that they plan to conduct transactions with China using gold as a means of marginalizing the power of the dollar in bilateral trade between the geopolitically powerful nations. This latest movement is quite simply the manifestation of a larger geopolitical game afoot between great powers.

According to a report published by Reuters:

Sberbank was granted international membership of the Shanghai exchange in September last year and in July completed a pilot transaction with 200 kg of gold kilobars sold to local financial institutions, the bank said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you can manage to get into some physical gold and silver, while the price in the US is still being suppressed, now would be one heck of a good time to do this.

We may well be seeing the US starting to use two types of currencies; one, internal to the US, and one external, backed in gold and/or silver; but the days of the petrodollar appear to be numbered right now.

Tesla will soon hit the limit of the federal tax rebates, which are good for the first 200,000 EVs sold in the US per manufacturer beginning in December 2009 (IRS explanation). In the second quarter after the manufacturer hits the limit, the subsidy gets cut in half, from $7,500 to $3,750; two quarters later, it gets cut to $1,875. Two quarters later, it goes to zero.
