The World's Silliest Empire

The first bit of extreme silliness surfaced when Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, the head of the United States Central Command, told a Senate panel that only a very small number of Syrian fighters trained by the United States remained in the fight—perhaps as few as five. The tab for training and equipping them was $500 million. That's $100 million per fighter, but that's OK, because it's all good as long as the military contractors are getting paid. Things got even sillier when it later turned out that even these few fighters got car-jacked by ISIS/al Qaeda in Syria (whatever they are currently calling themselves) and got their vehicles and weapons taken away from them.

The flood of immigrants/refugees is part of the plan for a global government. The blending of people from around the world into Europe and the US is intended to dilute our sense of a cultural or regional identity, to reduce popular opposition to the dropping of all borders.

Mainstream Media Touting "Unconfirmed Reports" Russia Just Accidentally Bombed Iran

This is propaganda in action. In fact, if we taught a course specifically on mainstream media propaganda, we'd use this clip from CNN today as a perfect example.

Moscow is denying this and no one at the U.S. State Dept. is confirming it at this time... but look at how they run with it like it's a fact (and even use the word "fact") when this is, by definition, no such thing.

How they can call this "news" with a straight face is their real talent.

Clinton server hack attempts came from China, Korea, Germany

At least five cyberattack tries were apparently blocked by a "threat monitoring" product that was connected to her network in October 2013, eight months after she left office. But for more than three months earlier that year, her system was not protected by the security product because it had not been installed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP

And just to make it easier for you to post to the comments sections on corporate media websites, here are two text versions for you to cut and paste, depending on how much room you are allowed.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

At the same time Bill Clinton was transferring this technology to China, huge donations began to pour into his re-election campaign from the US companies allowed to sell the technology to China, and from American citizens of Chinese descent. The fact that they were US citizens allowed them to donate to political campaigns, but it later emerged that they were acting as conduits for cash coming in from Asian sources, including Chinese Intelligence Agencies! The scandal became known as China-gate!

This establishes a history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own personal property, selling them to raise money for campaigns.

Now then, let us consider a private email server with weak security, at least one known totally open access point, no encryption, and outside the control and monitoring systems of the US government, on which are parked many of the nation's most closely guarded secrets! It is already established that Hillary's email was hacked. One hacker named Guccifer provided copies of emails to Russia Today, which published them. Another hacker is reported to be offering 32,000 of Hillary's emails for the sum of $500,000. Security experts agree that Hillary's server had worse security than the Ashley Madison website!

Now, consider a charitable foundation owned by the Clintons (which actually does very little charitable work). Being a charitable foundation, it is allowed to accept "donations" from foreign sources, and roughly 40% of the cash that has poured into the Clinton Foundation has come from foreign sources. Many of those foreign sources received preferential treatment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sufficient for attorney Larry Klayman to file a RICO lawsuit against the foundation (which as of last report was thrown out of court by a Clinton-appointed judge who refused to recuse himself over the obvious conflict of interest)!

Easy means of delivering secrets. Easy means of accepting payment! And now there is confirmation that Hillary did have a private "off the books" spy network, centered on Sidney Blumenthal, while she was secretary of state!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!

And the longer the government and corporate media avoids this question, the more complicit they look!

(smaller) ---------------

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

ISIS training militants from Russia in Afghanistan, ‘US and UK citizens among instructors’

US cited as ferrying ISIS fighters into Afghanistan!

Islamic State is training militants from Russia in Afghanistan as part of its efforts to expand into Central Asia, a senior Russian diplomat told a security conference in Moscow. He added that US and UK passport holders are among the instructors.

“There are several camps operated by [Islamic State, previously ISIS/ISIL, in Afghanistan] that train people from Central Asia and some regions of Russia. They speak Russian there,” said Zamir Kabulov, President Putin’s special representative for Afghanistan.

He added that there is a wide national variety of instructors in those camps. There are Arabs, Pakistanis and even people with US and British citizenship, he said.

The beleaguered program — which managed to field only a handful of militants into the battle against Daesh (ISIL) in Syria at a cost of about $50 million — will be stopped, senior Pentagon officials said on Friday.

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that he “wasn’t happy with the early efforts” of the program, “so we have devised a number of different approaches.”

'Russia is Defending Europe by Fighting Terrorists in the Middle East'

Instead of using this opportunity to present a united front against Islamic extremism, the United States and NATO have only criticized Moscow for its anti-terrorism efforts employing rhetoric reminiscent of the Cold War era.

It should come as no surprise, since Washington, according to the analyst, has no intention to tackle ISIL. "When we look at the US operations and compare them to the ones undertaken by Russia we can clearly see that it's Russia who is trying to fight the terrorist threat in the Middle East, not the United States," he pointed out.

Moreover, the US is using the refugee crisis to its own advantage, Piskorski noted. He mentioned that American foundations are sponsoring NGOs across Europe that are assisting incoming migrants. But Washington appears not to be driven by humanitarian concerns.

Europe must treat Russia with more decency, improve the relationship, and not let EU policies be dictated by Washington, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said in a surprise speech in Germany.

It is now critical for the EU to work on its relations with Russia, Juncker said in the southern German town of Passau: “We must make efforts towards a practical relationship with Russia. It is not sexy but that must be the case, we can’t go on like this.”

Moreover, the US needs to keep its influence out of EU relations with other countries, Juncker added.

“Russia must be treated decently … We can’t let our relationship with Russia be dictated by Washington.”

Reports of Russian missiles falling in Iran lies, part of psychological war - Iranian general

Western media reports of Russian missiles hitting Iran are “blatant lies” and part of a campaign of psychological warfare, a top Iranian military commander said. CNN claimed four Russian cruise missiles fell in Iran instead of continuing toward Syria.

“We have no reports of any Russian missiles crashing in Iran,” Gen. Musa Kamali told Russian news agency Sputnik. “All those media reports alleging that Russian missiles aiming at Syria hit Iran are blatant lies.”

“If the people making those claims had any proof, they would have certainly presented it,” he said. “The US made similar allegations in the past as part of their psychological warfare against whoever opposes their policies in the region.”

After every mass shooting, you can expect the gun control crowd to make the same exact argument that they’ve been trying to make for decades. They will tell you that in every country with limited access to firearms, there are fewer firearm related deaths, both by homicide and by suicide.

However, this time, ‘democracy’ and European values are installed on a much wider scale and by pretty determined are going to bring a ‘colour revolution’ from the Middle East to the heart of dying Europe.

A New Paradigm Of Government (ANPOG)

Imagine:

The PEOPLE RULE their government, and NOT conversely so;
NO payroll taxes, or taxes on savings, checking, or other private account;
NO real estate or property taxes, and no taxes on utilities;
NO taxation for any aspect of government, unless you agree to support it by voting for it yourself;
Being free to live your life as you see fit without laws, rules, or regulations dictating what you may, or may not eat, drink, smoke —or otherwise— as long as you’re not harming another person’s life, liberty, or property in the process;
Term limits for ALL elected, and appointed offices;
NO elected or appointed persons are above, or beyond the law, or with any ability to exempt themselves from any law, rule or regulation, or set themselves separate from the People in any way;
ONLY the People get to decide what is law, or not;

Unsealed Documents Show Pinochet 'Directly' Involved in Capitol Hill Assassinations

Loved ones have long charged that U.S.-backed dictator Augusto Pinochet had a direct hand in the 1976 assassination of former Chilean diplomat Orlando Letelier and his Institute for Policy Studies colleague Ronni Karpen Moffitt. Now, they may finally be vindicated. The administration of President Barack Obama on Thursday publicly released documents that appear to show that Pinochet was behind the murders of Letelier and Moffitt, who have become "symbols of the broader human rights catastrophe of the Pinochet dictatorship," Sarah Anderson, director of the Global Economy Project at IPS, told Common Dreams.

Free Thought vs. Social Conformity

As celebrated thinker Edward de Bono notes: ‘If everyone is going in the same direction, then anyone who is going in a different direction is “wrong”. The other direction might be better – but it is still wrong.’

Such is the powerful pull of social conformity. People cannot be fully trusted to say and do what they think is right if others around them are all expressing an opposite opinion. This is because the pull towards social conformity, whether conscious or unconscious, is just too strong. The danger here is that in such environments a person is more likely to give away their personal responsibility than act upon it. A group more generally exhibits a lack of responsibility on the part of its members since each person thinks that the overall responsibility can be shared. Since there is no individual blame to be accrued, a person tends to relinquish their own personal responsibility.

The result is that each person reinforces the other’s inertia. Thus, non-action actually becomes the accepted norm within the group. This inertia is then reinforced and validated, often through personal rationalization, since so much has been invested in the group. To be wrong could inflict much angst upon an individual; it is therefore better to rationalize one’s actions as correct. This ‘fear of responsibility’ is a product of socialization and renders an individual less capable of dealing fluidly with the uncertainties and complexities of a full life.

Vladimir Putin – Agent of the Awakening?

Well, well, well, aren’t we seeing a massive turnaround of late. Putin was so sharp, calm and truthful at the UN and other recent speeches and interviews compared to the same old Amerikan false bravado diatribe it was like having a clean shower after swimming through a cesspool.

And the whole free world feels the same.

What I admire about him is his cool demeanor and very artful tact in how he approaches massively sensitive subjects. He has to cloak it in “diplomati-speak” of course to reach the type of audience within those bound up layers of communication, but he does it masterfully. You don’t sense the BS factor and full on propagandized deception you get from the Obamaramadingdong script reading puppet.

Video: Israel plants armed “stone throwers” among Palestinian protestors

A Reuters correspondent observed Israeli undercover agents disguised as Palestinian youths inciting violence. He’s backed up by video evidence. One video shows an Israeli undercover agent apparently firing a pistol into the leg of a Palestinian at point blank range.

Luke Baker tweeted: “Footage in Ramallah shows undercover #Israeli police throwing stones at Israeli forces and inciting #Palestinian youth to do the same.”

Russia's Defense Ministry aware of Free Syrian Army’s willingness to battle IS together

"We focused our attention on the fact that certain forces operating in Syria at present, including the Free Syrian Army, express their willingness to cooperate and get involved in the discussions on participation in the struggle against the ISIL [the former name of Islamic State - eds. TASS]," Konashenkov said underscoring that the Russian defence ministry was open to contacts and was set to debate any constructive proposals. In the meantime, Konashenkov said the Russian Defense Ministry’s appeals to foreign counterparts for coordinates of IS facilities had remained unanswered. "Today we ask them: give us the coordinates of ISIL facilities," he said. "But either silence is the answer or a refusal." All the attempts to receive coordinates of the moderate opposition have failed as well, he said. "As of today, we observe a complete deadlock provoking a conclusion - either the moderate oppositions is a ghost or you just pretend you support it," he said.

Protesters in Moldova turn down authorities’ proposal to begin talks

"We have nothing to negotiate with the oligarchical regime. Moreover, we are not going to sign any pacts with it. When they stole a billion, did they ask the people’s opinion? The only thing we can discuss with them is the resignation of all leaders and the appointment of the date of the parliamentary elections," Dodon told reporters. Large-scale protests erupted in Moldova in the spring 2015 after the media had reported a theft of about one billion US dollars from three Moldovan banks, which nearly went bankrupt. Back then, Moldova’s ruling Alliance for European Integration coalition came under severe criticism from foreign donors, including the European Union and the World Bank, which subsequently suspended their financing of the republic. The opposition declared Moldova "a country captured by oligarchs and seeks the resignation of the country’s leaders. It also insists on holding early parliamentary elections and the transition to the presidential election by direct vote.

US: Several Russian cruise missiles landed in Iran

As many as four of the 26 long-range cruise missiles that Russia said it fired at Syrian targets landed instead in Iran, U.S. defense officials said Thursday.

The officials said it's unclear whether the errant missiles, launched from Russian ships in the Caspian Sea, caused any significant damage in Iran. Both the Russian government and state-run Iranian media accused the United States of inaccurate or deliberately deceptive statements.

“Now the criminal Congress and shadow government need to use procedural martial law to pass stop-gap spending measures to keep the entire house of cards from coming down.

The entire system has been manipulated to wring out the very last dollar from the American people, to bankrupt the Treasury, and to bring the United States of America to its knees – so that a new international currency can rise like a Phoenix from the ashes.”

The NATO-Russia Face Off in Syria

As for those Syrian “moderate rebels” – and most of them are not even Syrian, they’re mercenaries – every pebble in the ravaged Sykes-Picot desert sands knows they were trained by the CIA in Jordan. The desert pebbles are also aware that ISIS/ISIL/Daesh goons have been infiltrated into Syria from Turkey – once again, across Hatay province; and vast swathes of ‘the Sultan’s’ Army and police were into the game.

The Deadly Fraud of "American Exceptionalism"

Doubtless you have heard more than once the term "American Exceptionalism." It implies, in short, that we are somehow special, different, superior. We are the "city upon a hill" whose freedoms and accomplishments set us apart. Alexis de Tocqueville coined the phrase midway through the 19th century, and it has enjoyed constant deployment by politicians and pundits ever since, because it lights a warm bulb of self-satisfaction in many bellies ... and people feeling good about themselves are easier to convince. Salesmen thrived on this axiom before Babylon's bricks were laid.

GOP lawmaker warns leadership candidates of 'skeletons in their closets'

Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) wants to avoid the possibility of a member of the new House GOP leadership resigning from office because of a scandal.

In a letter to House GOP Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), Jones asked that Republicans discuss urging candidates for leadership to drop out if they might one day embarrass the party because of past indiscretions.

"With all the voter distrust of Washington felt around the country, I’m asking that any candidate for Speaker of the House, majority leader, and majority whip withdraw himself from the leadership election if there are any misdeeds he has committed since joining Congress that will embarrass himself, the Republican Conference, and the House of Representatives if they become public," Jones wrote.

With Russia having completed its first week of airstrikes in Syria, firing some 26 cruise missiles from warships deployed over 900 miles away in the Caspian Sea, an escalating drumbeat of warnings and threats of a far more dangerous conflict and even world war has come to dominate discussions within ruling circles in both the US and Europe.

'Americans destroy others': actor Depardieu rails against US

Gerard Depardieu played a Frenchman desperate to do anything to live in America in the 1990 movie "Green Card", but in a new interview, he shows little love for the US.

"The US? They're a people who have constantly destroyed others," the 66-year-old actor railed in a broadcast Thursday by Paris radio station France Inter, taken from an interview he gave the day before to Russian journalists in Moscow.

"They fought each other, destroyed the Indians, after that they perpetrated slavery, then there was the civil war," he said.

"After that, they were the first to use the atomic bomb...No, I prefer being Russian."

He added: "If the Europeans stopped listening to the Americans, well, I'd be a lot happier."
