The Line In The (Oil) Sand

What do all the inquiring minds want to know right now? Is the bounce in energy stocks for real? Analysts, pundits, gurus, oil tycoons and social media macro tourists all have an opinion on whether oil and oil stocks have bottomed and are on their way to boomtown again…or are in the midst of a dead-cat bounce, destined for the dusty plains of new lows. While they’re busy pouring over economic data out of China, storage reports and rig counts, parsing words out of OPEC and handicapping the U.S. presidential race for clues, we wonder, what if it merely comes down to a single line drawn on a chart?

Rights, Privileges, & Immunities Always Vanish in the Shadow of Government

The cyber police are monitoring everything. Anyone who appears to be organizing any type of protest in Germany is visited by the police. This is the new national security and slight statements are being targeted as “troublemaker speech.” We are heading into the dark land of government suppression. Part of the U.S. First Amendment is the freedom of assembly. This civil right was recognized by the Founding Fathers because the government in those days acted in the same manner. Anyone who dared to try to organize a protest was imprisoned.

Every fiscal year, the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 requires the House and Senate to enact 12 separate discretionary spending bills, one for each appropriations subcommittee (Agriculture, Defense, Homeland Security, and so on). They have failed to meet this minimum requirement since 1994.

EU TURKEY SUMMIT: EU AND TURKISH LEADERS DEAL DEATH BLOW TO THE RIGHT TO SEEK ASYLUM

Prime Minister of Turkey Ahmet Davuto?lu, President of the European Council Donald Tusk and President of the European Commission Jean Claude Juncker shared the outline of the plan for a final agreement between the EU and Turkey, in advance of the European Council meeting on 17 and 18 March. The proposal that for every Syrian refugee returned to Turkey from Greece, a Syrian will be settled within the EU is wrought with moral and legal flaws. Unsettlingly, this plan would make every resettlement place offered to a Syrian in the EU contingent upon another Syrian risking their life by embarking on the deadly sea route to Greece. “EU and Turkish leaders have today sunk to a new low, effectively horse trading away the rights and dignity of some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

The Bank of International Settlements says a storm in financial markets ‘has been building for a long time’

A fragile calm in global financial markets has given way to all-out turbulence, the Bank of International Settlements has said, warning of a “gathering storm” which has long been brewing. In its latest quarterly report, watched closely by investors, the BIS – which is known as the central bank of central banks – also warned that investors were concerned governments around the world were running out of policy options. BIS chief Claudio Borio said the “uneasy calm” of previous months had given way to turbulence and a “gathering storm”. “The tension between the markets’ tranquillity and the underlying economic vulnerabilities had to be resolved at some point. In the recent quarter, we may have been witnessing the beginning of its resolution,” he added. “We may not be seeing isolated bolts from the blue, but the signs of a gathering storm that has been building for a long time,” he warned...

Why Ukraine needs Russia more than ever

With country at risk of becoming a failed state, Kiev must recognise that economic survival depends on Moscow not the west. n January Ukraine’s president, Petro Poroshenko, congratulated the country on surviving its first winter without buying Russian gas. It had instead bought European gas which, as Poroshenko pointed out proudly, was 30% more expensive. This sums up the core problem facing the Ukrainian economy. It is not corruption, a serious issue about which little can be done in the short term, but the ideologically driven choice to sever all ties with Russia, the country that has historically been its major trading partner and chief investor. In little over a year, living standards in Ukraine have fallen by half, the currency has lost 350% of its value, and inflation has skyrocketed to 43%. Yet, even as the economy has collapsed, the government has insisted on economic policies that can only be termed suicidal. Economic minister's resignation plunges Ukraine into new crisis.

Rogozin: sanctions against Russia always will be

Sanctions against Russia will be always, therefore, it is necessary to cease to be interested in what the West says about it. This was stated by Vice-Premier of Russia Dmitry Rogozin at the meeting of the Presidium of the state Commission on development of the Arctic in Murmansk. Rogozin noted that he constantly have to read posts about the EU and the U.S. consider lifting sanctions against Russia, and then still extend them. Vice-Prime Minister urged to lose interest in these messages, because the sanctions in one form or another will always be. "When President Putin set the task to create the material basis of national identity, of freedom, of independence of the country in its foreign Affairs, it will always be accompanied by resistance of leading global powers against Russia," RIA Novosti quoted Rogozin.

Bullet hole on LaVoy Finicum's truck traced to elite FBI team

This case is about to blow wide open.They let the local office issue a report saying the murder under color of law was kosher. The next day, the Justice Department announces it is investigating the FBI agents involved because they fired at LaVoy Finicum and didn't report it or turn in their guns. This is very BIG!

An elaborate computer analysis, a review of the FBI aerial video of the shooting scene and a video from a passenger in Finicum's pickup produced a result that startled the team poring over evidence into Finicum's fatal shooting that day.

The fourth round, police concluded, was fired by an FBI agent who subsequently twice denied to investigators ever firing his gun. As the investigation proceeded, detectives determined he also fired a second time, but didn't hit anything at the scene.

Rada deputy rips off Russian flag from building of Russia’s Consulate General in Lviv

Russian Consul General Oleg Astakhov told TASS that Parasyuk had staged a deliberate provocation. "He asked to allow him to enter the territory of the consulate so that he could hand over a petition," Astakhov said. "He was allowed to enter, two diplomats went to meet him. In the end, he did not hand anything over but demanded to remove the Russian flag. Of course, he was refused. The deputy went to the flagpole and ripped off the flag. At the same time, around 15 people were trying to break through to the territory of the consulate. The guards did not allow this to happen. (Protesters) then threw eggs and petards". Astakhov said the building of the consulate general is under increased protection of local police. The diplomat said that around 250 people took part in the anti-Russian demonstration.

Bank CEO reveals how Obama administration shook him down

The former CEO of Ally Financial Inc. says the Obama administration abused its power by holding the bank’s business hostage in order to coerce a record settlement of “trumped-up” racism charges and push profit-killing new regulations on the entire auto-lending industry.

The huge $100 million deal has spooked several other major lenders into resolving similar race-bias charges and offering below-market rates to minorities for car loans.

Michael A. Carpenter, who helmed Detroit-based Ally from 2009 to 2015, complained in an exclusive interview that Obama’s powerful consumer watchdog agency threatened to derail the bank’s efforts to obtain key regulatory approvals if it didn’t agree to settle the allegations out of court.

“To be strong-armed by a regulator was inappropriate to say the least,” he said. “They absolutely knew they had tremendous leverage over us.”

Cruz Would Be Dangerous in the Oval Office

Trump Is the Most Offensive GOP Candidate, But Cruz Would Be More Dangerous in the Oval Office
Ted Cruz is a conniving, uncompromising, power-hungry demagogue whose policies would serve the richest Americans.

It may be that Republicans would prefer the right-wing devil they know rather than the one they do not. Their fears of Trump resemble wide swings of a pendulum. On some issues it’s his ugly, bigoted and juvenile rhetoric and strongman posturing that repulses. On the other extreme lurks a sneaking suspicion among GOP luminaries that he might be too liberal and malleable, not just unpredictable, for conservatives to stomach.

Trump is the more offensive presidential candidate, but Cruz is far more dangerous. As Eugene Robinson, a Washington Post columnist, wrote in December, “If Ted Cruz is the Republican Party’s cure for Donald Trump, the antidote may be worse than the poison.”

Number of CHILDREN prescribed antidepressants soars by 50% in seven years

Soaring numbers of children are being prescribed antidepressants, a study has found.

The number of children being given the drugs increased by more than 50 per cent between 2005 and 2012, researchers discovered.

Usage in Britain fell in 2004 following a warning antidepressants could lead to suicidal behaviour in young people.

But the new study suggests there has been a resurgence in the UK as well as in the US and across Europe.

Does Pluto have CLOUDS? Evidence of an 'active cycle' has raised the possibility it could be reinstated as a planet

Nasa's New Horizons space probe has been travelling to Pluto since 2005, and began its first close approach of Pluto last July.

The probe has sent back images showing icy mountain ranges, blocks of ice, craters and even snow.

But the most recent development comes from a photograph and emails discovered by New Scientist, revealing the possible presence of individual clouds on the dwarf planet.

It has raised the debate that Pluto should be classified as a planet again, but physicists have told MailOnline this is unlikely.

The Russian warning followed a call by Kim for his military to be prepared to mount pre-emptive attacks against the U.S and South Korea and stand ready to use nuclear weapons.

European Parliament to vote on a three MILLION euro plan to buy its own fleet of chauffeur driven limousines for MEPs

The European Parliament is to vote on plans to spend an extra three million euros a year on chauffeur driven cars.

MEPs will vote today on whether to buy outright a fleet of limousines and hire their own drivers.

Included in the proposal is a 116,000 euro budget for driver uniforms.

The proposals would add to an existing seven million euro bill but end a practice where cars and drivers are contracted in.

The objective of the scheme is to improve the security of MEPs, official papers reveal.

Suspect in 5 killings arrested after massive manhunt

KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV/AP) -
A man suspected of fatally shooting four people at his neighbor's home in KCK before killing another man about 170 miles away in a rural Missouri house was taken into custody early Wednesday morning after an extensive manhunt, troopers said.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says a man who was the focus of a Missouri manhunt after five fatal shootings is a Mexican national who was in the country illegally.

The agency said in a statement Tuesday night that Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino had been previously deported from the U.S. in April 2004. ICE says he illegally re-entered the country on an unknown date.

The US Government Just Killed 150 People In A Country They Aren’t Even At War With

By John Vibes

This week, the US government used drones and airstrikes to fire missiles and drop bombs in a country that they aren’t at war with, killing at least 150 people. This act of aggression took place in Somalia, where the US military regularly stages drone strikes and other attacks, despite the fact that they have not declared war on the country. The government claims that every single one of the victims were “militants” or terrorists; however, they have not revealed the identities of the victims and have not provided any evidence to support their claims...

US National Debt: Why Russia Plays in the Largest Ponzi Scheme in the World

Russian economist Mikhail Delyagin explains the intricacies of US national debt, and why Russia continues to participate in what he calls 'the largest Ponzi scheme in the world'. "Using the position of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, the United States is able to stimulate its economy by increasing public debt," Delyagin writes, in a recent article for independent Russian newspaper Svobodnaya Pressa: "The ability to increase the debt is not just a guarantee of America's competitiveness and influence, but a condition of its economic existence. The US lives on borrowed money, which it forces the rest of the world to pay for. In 1980, the national debt was $0.9 trillion dollars (33% of GDP). By 1990 it was $3.2 trillion (55.9%). In 2000 it was $5.6 trillion (58%, assisted somewhat by Clinton's budget surpluses in the 90s). In 2010 it was $13.8 trillion (96.5% of GDP), and as of the end of January 2016, it sits at $19 trillion (103.7% of GDP).

German Politician Willy Wimmer: 'It's Time We Cleaned Up This Mess in Germany'

Mr. Wimmer: Germany has not seen comparable clamp downs on freedom of speech since the Nazi era and the GDR... at least since the war in Yugoslavia, which broke international law, the western mainstream media and public TV and radio stations have degenerated to a warmongering tool for interested parties. This situation poses a deadly threat to our country. And when we just compare contemporary western media with Russia media, we see the consequences. In Russia media you are allowed to develop and to discuss various thoughts and ideas, whereas in western media, the desired outcome is determined a priori by the journalists in charge, and these guys are just select suitable individuals out of the public or politics, who will support their pre-established opinion. Subsequently, these selected individuals are allowed to show their face and their voice for just 20 seconds or so to the audience, and that is the final result of these radio or television shows.

Buried inside 48 pages of highly technical language is a gripping story of mismanagement, delayed tests, serious safety issues, a software nightmare and maintenance problems crippling half the fleet at any given time.

The report makes clear just how far the F-35 program still has to go in the development process. Some of the technical challenges facing the program will take years to correct and, as a result, the F-35’s operationally demonstrated suitability for combat will not be known until 2022, at the earliest.

New Evidence Shows Foul Play, Cover-up by FBI and OSP in Shooting of Lavoy Finicum – DOJ Opens New Investigation

The mainstream media called it ‘case closed’ after the FBI released its aerial of footage of the ambush and shooting of Lavoy Finicum. Now, new evidence reveals that there was likely foul play and a misrepresentation by Federal and State authorities involved in the recent killing of rancher and protester Lavoy Finicum.

As 21WIRE reported at the time (although ignored by the Oregonian and other mainstream media outlets) that without any audio track to synch with the FBI’s aerial footage, it was impossible to really tell when shots were fired and if the official story was actually true. At the time, FBI Special Agent in Charge, Greg Bretzing, insisted that their footage provided an “honest and unfiltered view” of what happened. However, new evidence tells different story, and appears to demonstrate exactly how the official story was intentionally distorted by authorities – in order to cover-up what really happened that day.

Central Banks Are About To Leave Fiat Addicted Stock Markets In Agony

By Brandon Smith

Many investors today are not very familiar with market history and tend to live only in the day-to-day mainstream narrative while watching little red and green graphs move up and down. This is not so much an issue in a relatively stable economic environment. The problem is, today we live in the most unstable economic conditions possible.

These investors and analysts are simply not aware that some of the most exciting stock rallies occur during the most volatile crises, and so they interpret every rally of a few days to a few weeks as a signal for recovery. However, in this kind of fiscal environment, all the gains made in a few weeks can be lost in moments...

Why Is A Fed Governor Donating Money To Hillary Clinton?

Any time a Fed president, governor or chairman trots out the trite cliche that the Fed is "apolitical" we can't help but laugh for one simple reason: not only is the Fed not apolitical, but is very closely ideologically tied with whichever party promotes deficit spending which by definition is inflationary: more deficits mean more debt, means more opportunity for the Fed to show off its "inflation" creating skills; and in a Keynesian world, a stable 2% inflation is the lubricant that drives and stabilizes the financial system - the Fed's true mandate. There is a reason why central bankers call deflation a "monster" which must be slayed, as per Haruhiko "Peter Pan" Kuroda.

However, it is one thing to note the obvious, it is different to have proof that Fed members have a clear ideological bias. Thanks to recent Fed appointee Lael Brainard, we have just that.

Mitt Romney won’t rule out accepting GOP nomination at contested convention

Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, refused Sunday to rule out becoming the nominee again this year at a brokered convention, though he insisted he couldn’t imagine that happening.

The GOP "leadership" is so terrified of Trump they are going to hand Hillary Clinton the White House. So, everyone who supports Trump has to get out there and give him enough of a margin in the remaining primary states that he can block a brokered convention. It is not enough that Trump win; he must have a landslide, and GOP voters need to send a message to the GOP "leadership" that ousting Trump and putting in Romney (who hasn't won a single vote by the people yet) will be the end of the Republican party itself , and their cushy "leadership" jobs.

New Cold Warriors Bare Fangs Ahead of Next Syria Peace Talks

In renewing their bids to demonize Russia, our new cold warriors hope to work a twofer: derail the next round of Syria peace talks while further undermining US-Russian relations. The sabotage takes several forms: through congressional hearings, through think tank events, and through a steady stream of anti-Russian stories in major mainstream publications...The tendency of the new cold warriors to praise anyone thought to be standing up to Russia, no matter how noxious, can be seen in their fulsome expressions of solidarity with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Although Erdogan jails journalists and opposition leaders at a rate that would make Putin blanch, he is held in high esteem within the military-media-think tank nexus. Indeed, Turkey’s by now well-known collusion with ISIS is studiously ignored in favor a narrative that paints Turkey as the latest target of Putin’s Russia...

The same would be true of US satellites if other nations forbid US satellites from passing over their territory. If any nation on the equator starts forbidding foreign satellites over their territory, spaceflight comes to an end!

Company that Paid Hillary Clinton $335K for Speech Slapped With SEC Bribery Suit

A tech company that paid Hillary Clinton $335,000 to give a speech in 2014 settled a dispute last week with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which claims the corporation repeatedly bribed foreign political officials to promote its products and gain a business advantage.

Qualcomm, a wireless telecommunications company based in San Diego, paid $7.5 million to settle the SEC probe. In a statement announcing the settlement last week, the commission accused the company of violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act between 2002 and 2012 by hiring unqualified relatives of Chinese officials and providing them with luxury gifts that had “no valid business purpose.”

These allegations were echoed in a civil lawsuit filed by Qualcomm’s shareholders last month, which also accused the company’s executives of defrauding investors.

BEX ALERT - NSA Chief Warns Black Energy Attack On U.S. Power Grid A ‘Matter Of When, Not If’ – Lights Out Scenario Not A Myth But A Coming Reality

On March 1, 2016, Admiral Michael S. Rogers, U.S. Navy, Commander, U.S. Cyber Command, Director, National Security Agency/Chief, Central Security Service, was a keynote speaker, one of many the Obama administration rolled out at the 2016 RSA Conference, in order to push for more cooperation by the tech industry with government agencies, but Rogers’ warnings and predictions should be enough to convince even the most skeptical among us that a “lights out” scenario as well as a massive cyber attack on financial institutions, is not a “conspiracy” or “doom and gloom,” but is an eventuality.

The warnings and predictions Rogers makes come from having access to the most detailed information available, and he states clearly that it is “only a matter of the when, not the if, you are going to see a nation state, a group or actor engage in destructive behavior against critical infrastructure in the United States.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Isn't it the NSA's job to prevent such an event? Isn't that why were were told we had to surrender our privacy and allow the government to peek into our personal lives?

Well then, if any such event happens, it mans the NSA has FAILED! So, on the day that event happens, Admiral Michael S. Rogers should resign, or be fired, and given a thick coat of tar and feathers and run out of town on a rail!

Washington Hubris on Full Display at London Foreign Policy Speech

An ex-US defence official lectures the UK on how to deal with Russia - on the heels of America’s exceptional success in Ukraine. Any doubts that the US government views the nature of its relationship with the UK on foreign policy as one of subservience can be finally put to rest after the visit to London last week of Evelyn Farkas, former US Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia. Farkas, who was relieved of her position in the Obama administration some months ago, addressed the UK’s foreign policy elite at Chatham House, the Royal Institute for International Affairs. Farkas’s oversight of the region saw relations with Russia deteriorate to a level not seen since the Cold War deep freeze.

As Pentagon Seeks to Quadruple Europe Spending Russia Cuts Defense 5% in 2016

Just as Pentagon is relying more on supposed Russia threat to justify its stratospheric budget than ever before, the Russian Defense Ministry goes and announces they'll slash their own spending 5% in 2016...This would represent a cut of about $2.3 billion off of Russia’s existing $46 billion budget. The US, by contrast, spent $581 billion in 2015, and is projected to spend more in 2016. Oh how the Pentagon wishes that oil prices hadn't crashed!

Donetsk Blog Mar 09: Ukrainian Army Attacks - Mercenaries Revolting - Ukrainian Drunken Losses

The Ukrainian army continues advancing in the buffer zone. Yesterday they seized the area near the strategically important road connecting Donetsk and Gorlovka, a city in the north of the DPR. However, this time the Ukrainian military did not limit themselves to occupying another part of no-man’s land. According to the DPR Defense Ministry, the Ukrainian military units shelled a civilian shuttle bus moving from Donetsk to Gorlovka, as well as several civilian cars. So far, no casualties have been reported. About 1.5km of the road turned out to be within striking distance from the positions of the Ukrainian military. Due to the threat of the safety of its citizens, the DPR authorities were forced to stop traffic on this road. At the same time the Ukrainian military attacked a nearby checkpoint of the DPR’s road police, using 82mm mortars, anti-aircraft artillery, large-caliber machine guns, and small arms.

Feminism and icebergs: a new low in climate ‘science’

Congratulations, taxpayers of America: You’ve just spent $412,930 on a “scientific” paper on the “relationship between gender and glaciers.”

That’s what the National Science Foundation dropped on “Glaciers, gender and science,” 10,000-plus words of gobbledygook from University of Oregon prof Mark Carey.

Sure, that’s roughly 40 bucks a word — but many of them are big words.

The study urges scientists to take a “feminist political ecology and feminist postcolonial” approach when studying melting ice caps and climate change. Hey, it’s not really global doom unless it comes with full-bore cutting-edge social-justice buzzwords.

Snowden: FBI's claim it can't unlock the San Bernardino iPhone is 'bullshit'

The FBI says that only Apple can deactivate certain passcode protections on the iPhone, which will allow law enforcement to guess the passcode by using brute-force.

Talking via video link from Moscow to the Common Cause Blueprint for a Great Democracy conference, Snowden said: “The FBI says Apple has the ‘exclusive technical means’ to unlock the phone. Respectfully, that’s bullshit.”

Snowden then went on to tweet his support for an American Civil Liberties Union report saying that the FBI’s claims in the case are fraudulent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The FBI has already stepped on their own ... foot. The justification to force Apple to unlock the iPhone is that it "might" contain the identity of a suspect in the San Bernardino shootings. Except that we were all told there were only two shooters, not three (as witnesses reported) and those two suspects are dead. The iPhone in question isn't even a personal phone of the suspects but an employer-supplied iPhone, making the suggestion that it contains personal information rather dubious. This is a fishing expedition by the FBI; the very sort of activity the Fourth Amendment forbids.

However, the conference is fiercely off the record, so it's not really known what was talked about or by whom. However, the speculation that the tech giants joined discussions on how to stop US presidential front runner Donald Trump from reaching the White House will get tongues wagging.

GlaxoSmithKline fined nearly half a billion dollars for criminal bribery of doctors and hospitals in China

China has just dished out the biggest fine in the history of their country, and it's being slapped down on one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world.

GlaxoSmithKline, the British pharmaceutical giant that medical authorities trust in around the world, is now being exposed for what it really is: an institution rooted in coercion and bribery that competes for control over healthcare systems around the world.

According to Chinese news agency Xinhua, GlaxoSmithKline is guilty of bribing doctors and hospitals in order to have their products promoted. The verdict, established in a court in Changsha, slaps the UK pharmaceutical firm with a $490 million fine, the largest in China's history. This puts an end to an investigation that began in July of 2013. Chinese officials estimate that GSK made $150 million in illegal profits.

BEX ALERT - Cruz, Rubio Now Trouncing Trump in Head-to-Head Polls

Republicans who don't support Donald Trump are more likely to prefer either Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio should the race go to a one-on-one contest, or would even favor a contested convention rather than have Trump take the nomination, a new ABC News/Washington Post poll reveals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The headline is misleading. Note that the poll was taken among Republicans who do not support Trump. Given yesterday's results, (despite Cruz being caught cheating again here in Hawaii) it is clear that this is already a one on one race between Donald Trump and Ted "Born in Canada" Cruz. And Trump is winning.

MIT States That Half of All Children May be Autistic by 2025 due to Monsanto

A senior scientist at MIT has declared that we are facing an epidemic of autism that may result in one half of all children being affected by autism in ten years.

Dr. Stephanie Seneff, who made these remarks during a panel presentation in Groton, MA last week, specifically cites the Monsanto herbicide, Roundup, as the culprit for the escalating incidence of autism and other neurological disorders. Roundup, which was introduced in the 1970’s, contains the chemical glyphosate, which is the focal point for Seneff’s concerns. Roundup was originally restricted to use on weeds, as glyphosate kills plants. However, Roundup is now in regular use with crops. With the coming of GMO’s, plants such as soy and corn were bioengineered to tolerate glyphosate, and its use dramatically increased. From 2001 to 2007, glyphosate use doubled, reaching 180 to 185 million pounds in the U.S. alone in 2007.

JAPANESE PEOPLE SHUN FUKUSHIMA SURVIVORS WHILE DOCTORS REFUSE THEM CARE

In retrospect, societal norms throughout history have sometimes become fatally irresponsible. When it comes to popular movements and health trends, humanity has had its share of shameful events stamped forever into the history books. While working in Vienna General Hospital’s first obstetrical clinic, where doctors' wards had three times the mortality of midwives' wards, Hungarian physician Ignaz Semmelweis proposed the novel idea of hand washing in 1847. Despite various publications of results where hand washing reduced mortality from 35% to below 1%, Semmelweis's observations conflicted with the established scientific and medical opinions of the time and his ideas were rejected. After his discovery, Semmelweis was committed to an insane asylum and promptly beaten to death by guards. As horrific as these visions and events can sometimes be, they continue to be played out in today’s society partially due to public ignorance, corruption, conflicts of interest and imbedded norms.

Will the Oligarchs Kill Trump?

Narrow victories in the Kentucky caucuses and the Louisiana primary, the largest states decided on Saturday, have moved Donald Trump one step nearer to the nomination.

Primaries in Michigan, Mississippi and Idaho on March 8, and in Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri and North Carolina on March 15, may prove decisive. If Marco Rubio does not win his home state of Florida, he is cooked, as is Gov. John Kasich if he does not win Ohio.

Ted Cruz already looks to be the last man between Trump and a GOP nomination that has gone, in the last seven elections, to George H. W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush, John McCain and Mitt Romney.

All five of those nominees since 1988 seem appalled by Trump’s triumphs and only slightly less so by the Cruz alternative.

Cost of Russia Spat Keeps Rising for Turkey

Turkey’s tourism hub, Antalya, has been greatly impacted by the fall, with observers saying the negative effect will especially be felt in 2016. After Antalya, Istanbul is the next destination mostly affected by the crisis. In addition to tourism facilities in Antalya which were designed for Russian tourists, the drop in fresh vegetables and fruits exports to Russia has harmed the province, as small- and medium-sized enterprises have begun experiencing tough times. Unemployment has begun, but the real impact will be seen in coming months. Moreover, property sales have dropped in Antalya, which was prioritized by Russians in terms of property purchases. There is activity in the region, though, with property-owning Russians putting their properties up for sale...

'SET UP ASSASSINATION' ALLEGED IN FBI KILL SHOTS

The family of Robert LaVoy Finicum, 55, who was killed by police in connection with a protest occupation of federal property in Oregon, have lashed out at the government’s official justification for his death, charging it was a “set up assassination.”

Critics point out police investigators in Bend, Oregon, said one FBI agent was suspected of lying about the shooting. And Finicum’s supporters suspect four other agents may have helped cover up misbehavior.

“They shot my husband, they left him lying in the snowbank – no medical assistance, no charges, no arraignment, no preliminary hearing, no indictment, and no trial by a jury – and should they just walk free? It just is not right,” Jeanette Finicum said in a statement released only hours after the FBI and Oregon state police presented their arguments.

The agreement reached during a visit by a Yemeni tribal delegation to the kingdom is the first of its kind since the Saudi-led coalition began a military campaign against the rebels in March last year.

The frontier between war-ravaged Yemen and its northern neighbour has seen many deadly incidents over the past 12 months.

Will Trump's Attys Go After CruzWho Is Clearly Ineligible?

I believe Trump's legal people can stop this election fraud because that's exactly what it is:

The GOP and Ted Cruz have put his name on state ballots. Since he's ineligible it's fraud. I sent all the below to our Texas AG and a copy to our gov, Greg Abbott who has endorsed Cruz with my strong statement the GOP and Cruz are guilty of fraud for knowingly putting an ineligible candidate on the ballot and that there is strong doubt Teddy is even a U.S. citizen, never mind natural born.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Timing is a critical issue here. If Trump knocks Cruz out over his eligibility now, then the GOP can push Rubio forward. If Trump is smart, he will wait until after all the primaries and caucuses are over when it is just Trump and Cruz, then sue Cruz. That leaves the GOP no other option than a brokered convention or an assassination to take the nomination away from Trump, either of which could easily trigger a mass uprising.

South Korea has informed Russia about the suspension of the project "Rajin-Hasan"

South Korea's government has informed Moscow about her withdrawal from the project of transportation "Rajin-Hasan". This is due to introduced by the UN security Council on sanctions against North Korea. About it reports information Agency "Renhal". According to sources, the notice was sent through diplomatic channels. Russian Railways jointly with North Korea reconstructed the railway line Hasan-Rajin and the Rajin port. And South Korea could join to the project – due to the deal she could get Russian goods faster and cheaper. However, South Korea has suspended participation in the project in response to the launch by Pyongyang of the rocket with the satellite. Trade and economic zone "Rajin-Sonbon" is located on the Japan sea coast. This way allows you to save time and fuel costs for delivery of cargo from Russia to South Korea. However, the new UN sanctions restricted the export from the DPRK of coal, gold, titanium and natural minerals.

Saudi Arabia will face cash crunch soon – expert

Not too far in the future Riyadh will run out of money, American political science professor James D. Savage told the Iranian Tasnim News Agency. “Saudi Arabia is running large budget deficits of 15 to 20 percent of GDP, and is drawing down on its currency reserves,” said Savage, who’s a political science professor at the University of Virginia and teaches public policy in the Department of Politics and at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. He added that the IMF estimates the Saudis “will run of cash reserves in five years, and will then go deeply into debt.” Last month, the Standard & Poor’s rating agency downgraded Saudi Arabia saying falling crude prices continue to hit the Kingdom’s finances. Riyadh is facing a huge budget deficit which is expected to reach $87 billion this year. The crude price crisis has had a huge impact on the economy as oil sales account for almost 80 percent of the country’s revenue.

Lula and the BRICS in a fight to the death

“BRICS” is the dirtiest of acronyms in the Beltway/Wall Street axis, and for a solid reason: the consolidation of the BRICS is the only organic, global-reach project with the potential to derail Exceptionalistan’s grip over the so-called “international community.” So it’s no surprise the three key BRICS powers have been under simultaneous attack, on many fronts, for some time now. On Russia, it’s all about Ukraine and Syria, the oil price war, the odd hostile raid over the ruble and the one-size-fits-all “Russian aggression” demonization. On China, it’s all about “Chinese aggression” in the South China Sea and the (failed) raid over the Shanghai/Shenzhen stock exchanges. Brazil is the weakest link among these three key emerging powers.

DNC Head Threatens to Kick Michigan Mayor Out of Debate for Cheering Bernie Sanders

Hillary is the candidate of the corrupt establishment. The status quo wants Hillary in the White House so the parasitic gravy train can roll on. DNC head and Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is one of these people. She isn’t interested in reform, because reform wouldn’t advance her personal interests. She wants things to stay the way they are, because it’s working great for her.

Genuine liberals are finally starting to see these people for the frauds they are, which is why the Democratic Party is currently splitting in two. On one side there are those who understand United States policy doesn’t need a tweak here or there — it needs to be hauled off to the emergency room immediately. The so-called “elites” in the Democratic Party are just as disconnected and clueless as their Republican counterparts. Instead of accepting that paradigm level reform is required, they merely double down on their support of cronyism and rent-seeking.

Watchdog audit finds billions in wasted dollars on Obamacare fiasco ... Totally incompetent government let anyone sign up with no proof of anything

There is now yet another reason to be disgusted by the ongoing fiasco known as Obamacare: A new report from the Government Accountability Office has concluded that the federal government's failure to properly monitor the eligibility of enrollees may have cost taxpayers billions in fraudulent payments.

The problem stems from the inability of the system used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to verify "inconsistencies" in the data it receives from the three agencies (IRS, DHS and SSA) responsible for determining the eligibility of applicants under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).

We collected information on this as early as 2014, when we received many reports of people being shot when they were trying to cross the border irregularly," Amnesty International's Andrew Gardner said.

Fighting in eastern Ukraine intensified in February — UN report

"There is a terrible sensation of physical, political, social and economic isolation and abandonment among the huge number of people - more than three million in all - who are struggling to eke out a living in the conflict zone.

According to the three UN agencies: Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees, the World Health Organization and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, between 16 November 2015 and 15 February 2016, 78 conflict-related civilian casualties were recorded in eastern Ukraine, bringing the estimated casualty figures since the beginning of the conflict to more than 30,000 people, including at least 9,160 killed and 21,000 injured. These figures include civilians as well as Ukrainian armed forces, and members of armed groups.

UN concerned over Kiev’s suspension of social payments to internally displaced persons

The United Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has expressed concern over Ukrainian government’s decision to suspend social payments for 150,000 internally displaced persons (IPDs) from Donbass. "A new source of concern in February was the government’s announcement to suspend social payments for a significant number of IDPs. On 21 February, Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk informed of suspension of social payments to 150,000 IDPs due to anecdotal occurrences of fraud," OCHA said in its "Humanitarian Bulletin: Ukraine Issue" for February 2016. Kiev’s refusal to make social payments triggered a strong reaction from the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk republics (DPR and LPR). DPR people’s council speaker Denis Pushilin said that the official refusal of Ukrainian authorities to make social payments to IDPs from Donbass demonstrate that these people are no longer considered Ukrainian citizens.

US to buy eight more Russian RD-181 engines for Antares rocket — manufacturer

The US Orbital Sciences corporation will buy from Russia’s NPO Energomash research and production association eight more RD-181 engines for the US carrier rocket Antares, the Russian manufacturer reported on its website on Wednesday. "The option has been exercised within the framework of the 2014 contract on the supply of the RD-181 liquid propellant engines for the first stages of the Antares carrier rockets," the report says. Russia’s NPO Energomash manufacturer also supplies to the United States the RD-180 engines that are used in the first stage of the Atlas V carrier rocket of the US consortium United Launch Alliance (established by Boeing and Lockheed Martin). It was announced in late 2015 that the sides concluded a contract on the supply of 20 more of these engines in the period until 2020. The US Congress earlier imposed restrictions on the use of these Russian-made engines in the United States.

The Classiest Victory Speech Of The Campaign Thus Far

The classiest, most luxurious victory speech of the campaign thus far
***
As you’ll see, Trump’s speech starts out with another bid for reconcilliation, talking about how he hopes that the party will “embrace” his victories and focus on the long game. He even gets in some some nice words about Speaker Paul Ryan. After that, though, he can’t resist a few digs at “Little Marco” and “Lying Ted Cruz” along with any others who have wronged him.

There’s nothing much more for it but to get to the video. Credit where credit is due, despite all the negative ads and social media bombardment, Trump’s people delivered a couple more big wins for him and it’s difficult to argue that his momentum has stalled.

A No Good, Very Bad Night for the Stop-Trump Forces

It was a terrible night for the forces that have come collectively to be known as #NeverTrump, the diverse array of people, campaigns, and historically important institutions united only by a desire to deny Donald Trump the Republican presidential nomination.

Going into Tuesday’s primaries, the last elections before the race enters its final and determinative phase when Ohio and Florida award 165 delegates on a winner-take-all basis next week, Trump’s enemies had hoped to stall his momentum. In particular, they hoped that Ted Cruz, whose campaign is based in large part on his appeal to Evangelical voters, could throw up a roadblock in Mississippi, and that John Kasich could arrest Trump’s momentum in Michigan.

Both Cruz and Kasich failed.>>>

Trump Delivers Another Blow To GOP Establishment

The Trump train is rolling right over and through the assembled GOP establishment. And the list of candidates who can plausibly hope to stop it -- even if they’re banking on a contested convention -- is shrinking.

Voting in Michigan and Mississippi confirms that Donald Trump is as dominant as ever in big primary contests, with Trump feasting on regions where his rivals were supposed to hold natural advantages. The projected win in Mississippi continues a sweep of the Deep South by a candidate whose main opponent tried to tag him as representing “New York values.”

Mitt Romney’s warnings and millions of dollars in outside spending has had no discernible impact>>>

Arab days of shame (MUST READ!)

The debauched Saudi royals, the same lazy criminals who die from obesity and self-inflicted diabetes whilst they are starving and bombing Yemen, the same people who poured billions upon billions of dollars to kill Syrians in an attempt to create an Islamic state in lieu of its secular government, that scourge of a family that rules with an iron fist wreaking havoc and creating wars between Arabs and Muslims and never once fired a single bullet at Israel, they actually had the audacity to call the shots and had Hezbollah declared as a terrorist organization. Strange days indeed.

New ABC Poll Shows Bernie Sanders Narrowing Clinton’s Lead to Single Digits for the First Time

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is making some serious gains against establishment candidate Hillary Clinton in a new ABC poll.

According to last week’s ABC News/Washington Post poll, conducted between March 3 and March 6, Clinton is now only ahead of Sanders by seven points among registered Democrats.

Bernie Sanders Wins Michigan Primary in Historic Upset

Bernie won the Black vote.

Despite Hillary’s supporters in the media continuing to trumpet that Bernie Sanders is unelectable, Bernie has just won the Michigan primary, his most important prize yet.

The turnout was incredibly high, with multiple primary precincts running out of ballots, according to WZZM. This victory has proven Bernie’s prediction to the Associated Press true that “if there is a large turnout, we are going to win here in Michigan.” With 90 percent of precincts reporting, the New York Times is projecting Sanders to win Michigan by a 50-48 margin.

“I just want to thank the people of Michigan who repudiated the polls, who repudiated the pundits,” Sanders said in an impromptu 11 PM news conference. “The people’s revolution, the political revolution we’re talking about is strong in every part of the country.”

11-minute video: Ken O’Keefe discusses Syrian war, US petrodollar crash, Israel’s terrorism in broader wars for Empire

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change’s insightful 11-minute video with former US Marine Ken O’Keefe:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcTN6a_Dk3k

Among hundreds in alternative media, I document illegal US/UK/Israel lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression that continue hundreds of years of psychopathic would-be empires, now focused on Syria with documented use of nuclear weapons by imperial forces (1-minute video):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVgPKxYVxb0

We’ve documented and proven that US “officials” outrageously lie to demonize Russia (and here) acting at the request of Syria’s government for military operations within their own borders against rogue terrorists. These terrorists apparently are agents of the US/UK/Israel illegal Wars of Aggression for empire (also here, here, here).

Chaffetz wants to take guns away from 'Rambo' BLM, Forest Service agents

SALT LAKE CITY — Law enforcement agents with the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service are too "Rambo" to Rep. Jason Chaffetz's liking, so he wants to take away their guns and authority.

"These agents are more Rambo and less Andy Griffith than I would like," he told the Deseret News Tuesday.

"Let's not kid ourselves. The blood pressure is running high, especially in southern Utah, and I don't want anyone to get killed," Chaffetz said, adding his bill has the endorsement of his Utah colleagues in the House.

The Warmongers Vote Goes To Clinton Over Trump

The beginning of wisdom in foreign policy is learning from mistakes, something that Clinton, who is supposedly much more sophisticated about such matters than Trump, has proven constitutionally incapable of doing.

Unlike Clinton, Trump intermittently seems to recognize the limits of American power and the impossibility of doing just one thing in a world full of complexity and unintended consequences.

Tel Aviv Pins Hopes on Clinton

One of the things that makes both Trump and Sanders so entirely different from the mainstream US political class is that neither of them genuflects to Tel Aviv and both of them take the idea that Palestinians have rights too. In fact the only chance of Israeli dominance of US foreign policy appears to rest with Hillary Clinton. She may be Goldman Sachs’ dog in this fight, but she is also Tel Aviv’s.

Unfortunately, despite continuing wins and trouncing Clinton in debate, it seems most unlikely Sanders will get the nomination. Clinton control of party machinery and firm position with those who have made an extremely fat living for themselves personally out of identity politics (sorry heroes of the civil rights movement), should ensure that. Can I commend you to read The Catholic Orangemen of Togo to see how just one ride in a car with Jesse Jackson put me right off him.

This Is How Corruption Works: A Hillary Clinton Example

Hillary Clinton approved the construction in South Africa of the world’s two largest coal-fired power-plants, and helped them get Export-Import Bank financing (U.S. taxpayer backing); then, some of her friends received construction contracts to build them.

Navy Caught Conducting Secret Electromagnetic Warfare Testing in Public in Washington State

By Claire Bernish

Exposure to electromagnetic frequency radiation has been shown by medical studies and the Navy to cause numerous health problems, including corneal damage, tubular degeneration of testicles, brain heating, sterility, altered penile function, death, cranial nerve disorders, seizures, convulsions, depression, insomnia, chest pain, and sparking between dental fillings. And that list is far from complete.

That being said, electromagnetic warfare testing and training has been covertly conducted by the U.S. Navy on public roads in Washington State — for over five years...

Denver PD Caught Stealing People’s Assets, Using Them to Pay for Massive Propaganda Campaign

By Justin Gardner

A couple of years ago, the Denver Police Department (DPD) was under fire for a spate of excessive force complaints. They wanted to change their image, so they began a massive public relations campaign, ramping up spending from $599 in 2011 to $136,783 in 2013.

The “media affairs unit” is made up of very well-paid employees who push their message in social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Last year the DPD spent $450,000 on six employees in the media team, which is far more than six cops on the beat would make...

The Next Act of the Neocons

AFTER nearly a decade in the political wilderness, the neoconservative movement is back, using the turmoil in Iraq and Ukraine to claim that it is President Obama, not the movement’s interventionist foreign policy that dominated early George W. Bush-era Washington, that bears responsibility for the current round of global crises.

Even as they castigate Mr. Obama, the neocons may be preparing a more brazen feat: aligning themselves with Hillary Rodham Clinton and her nascent presidential campaign, in a bid to return to the driver’s seat of American foreign policy.

To be sure, the careers and reputations of the older generation of neocons — Paul D. Wolfowitz, L. Paul Bremer III, Douglas J. Feith, Richard N. Perle — are permanently buried in the sands of Iraq. And not all of them are eager to switch parties: In April, William Kristol, the editor of The Weekly Standard, said that as president Mrs. Clinton would “be a dutiful chaperone of further American decline.”
