NEW: MAY 3, 2016 – “FRACTION MAGIC” REPORT

The results of this study demonstrate that a single person with access to the GEMS central tabulation system, which controls approximately 25 percent of all votes in the U.S., can use a fractional vote feature to alter election outcomes. This fractional vote counting feature is embedded into every jurisdiction that uses GEMS.

Counting votes as fractions instead of whole numbers enables the pre-setting of chosen vote percentages, in such a way that tampering can radically change election results and is unlikely to be detected by auditing or canvass procedures.

udge Gass has ruled against us. He meant to say that John Brakey, AUDIT-AZ and the Arizona voters they represent had no case at all and the action had no merit. But due to his own limited understanding of basic computer security he put quite a bit into his final record that shows serious reason for concern as to how Maricopa County in particular runs elections.

In the briefest possible terms, the Maricopa County Elections Department (MCED) has reserved the right to cheat. Just like they have in elections John Brakey and I have monitored going back to 2006.

ISRAEL AIDS ISIS - ISRAEL CHIEF OF STAFF GETS HACKED

Many have suspected Israel controls ISIS. The computer of Netanyahu Chief of Staff Mandi al-Safadi was allegedly hacked, showing communication with ISIS members.

Israel controls ISIS.

Many have long suspected the connection, given that ISIS serves the Zionist agenda so well, but now we may have more proof. According to Veterans Today, hackers were recently able to get access to several months of personal computer data and mobile phone calls of Israeli Chief of Staff under Netanyahu, Manzar (Mandi) al-Safadi. The hack allegedly revealed that al-Safadi had been communicating and cutting deals with many Lebanese personalities and Syrian opposition figures who cooperated with Israel in the Syrian crisis. The hackers allegedly found information which helped them to gain “valuable intelligence on Israel’s supports for terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq.”

German nuclear plant infected with computer viruses, operator says

A nuclear power plant in Germany has been found to be infected with computer viruses, but they appear not to have posed a threat to the facility's operations because it is isolated from the Internet, the station's operator said on Tuesday.

As the Iranians found out, the air-gapped computers running the systems can still be infected with flash drives. Back during Desert Storm, Iraq's military computers all crashed, even though they were not connected to the internet.

US facing a currency war over watchlist?

US markets and exporters begin the month with what some might dub a new Currency War, after the US Treasury provocatively includes Germany - the jewel in the euro - on its new forex watchlist

Germany will find itself rubbing shoulders, as well as its chin, with trading nations like China and Japan on a new currency watchlist - warning that all three faced extra scrutiny and potential retaliation by Washington as a result of concerns over growing imbalances in their trade relationship with the US.

The action comes amid continuing political pressure in the US for the Federal government to take a stronger stand against currency manipulation.

The timing is also in step with evidence of a strengthening of the Japanese yen in the wake of last week's decision by the Bank of Japan to do nothing on the monetary policy front. Markets had expected the central bank to boost economic stimulus.

The action also follows US GDP numbers last week which laid bare how a strong dollar continued to be a drag on US growth.

So, while the Federal Reserve finds itself increasingly boxed in trying to figure out if and when it might hike rates, so the dollar continues to gain and gives the US government reason to intervene.

"Once Americans learn that Ted Cruz is not constitutionally eligible for the presidency, they quickly reject him," states Washington, D.C. law professor Victor Williams.

Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada in 1970, and Cruz held his resulting Canadian citizenship until May 2014. Cruz is not a "natural born [American] Citizen" as Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution requires.

And despite all Western efforts to destroy the country as they did with Libya, and all the media’s propaganda work to demonize him, Assad is the only legitimate power in Syria who has the capacity to both win the war and bring stability to the country. Anything less than his victory would mean that the country will become yet another failed state in the Middle East serving as a hotbed for radical Islamic terrorists.

The real vaccine scam is not that they cause autism, but that they don't even work!

While the mainstream media more often links conservatives to big corporations, it is liberals and the the Left wing (including the mainstream media) that shill the most for drug companies. The latter are most responsible, for example, for backing governments that force parents to vaccinate their children against their will with potentially dangerous vaccines, some of which have been linked to autism, as the heavily censored documentary film Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe reveals.

Once extremely rare, autism is now so common that most people actually know someone whose child has been diagnosed with the affliction, notes Cliff Kinkead of Accuracy in Media. Indeed, a number of parents of autistic children believe that government policies that force children to get 69 doses of 16 vaccines before the age of 18[PDF] – some containing chemical combinations that are controversial and questionable – has had a major role in boosting the number of kids with autism.

Excluding currency fluctuations and other one-off items, profit declined 18% from the corresponding period in 2015 to $5.4bn.

'The benefits of statins have been exaggerated and their side effects downplayed': Expert claims healthy patients are being over-medicated due to trials sponsored by drug companies

A recent paper published in JAMA concluded nearly 43 per cent of people taking atorvastatin over 10 weeks suffered side-effects compared to 26 per cent of those on dummy pills, a 61 per cent increased risk.

And even for high risk patients, the benefits appear to have been grossly exaggerated.

The median increase in life expectancy in those at high risk who have suffered a heart attack if they take this pill on a daily basis for five years is a mere four days.

Nobody bothered to check who created that “anti-Semitic” image Naz Shah retweeted, did they?

You know that image that got Naz Shah suspended from the Labour Party?

The really offensive, anti-Semitic image that proposes relocating the nation of Israel from the Middle East to the American Midwest?

It seems nobody bothered to check on the person who originally published it.

So let me put you out of your misery.

The map was posted in Norman Finkelstein Solution for Israel-Palestine Conflict?, on Monday, August 4, 2014, on his blog.

Professor Finkelstein is described by that hideously inaccurate Wikipedia as “an American political scientist, activist, professor, and author. His primary fields of research are the Israeli–Palestinian conflict and the politics of the Holocaust, an interest motivated by the experiences of his parents who were Jewish Holocaust survivors.”

That’s right – it was posted by a Jewish gentleman.

Swedish Girl Shows Idiocy of Trans-Everythingism

In this video out of Sweden, a young Swedish blonde demonstrates the idiocy of the idea you can pick your gender based off how you feel.

Hanna Lindholm asked students at Södertörn University last week how they would react if she said she were a man.

"I would say good for you if you want to be a man," one girl responded.

A young man said, "I would say, OK great!"

Then she asks how would they react if she said she was Japanese?

Barclays.net Bank Holiday outage leaves firms unable to process payments

Barclays.net has been shrugging off business customers' login attempts since Friday, leaving many unable to process payments over the bank holiday weekend.

Problems with the business banking service peaked on Friday, with customers complaining that they were unable to process payments ahead of the bank holiday weekend.

One Reg reader complained to us that his business was unable to pay staff or suppliers and customer service provided "no help", while a colleague who was buying a house on Friday was panicked as their solicitor was unable to pay the developer.

Fortunately the payment "eventually got through" but not before much wailing and gnashing of teeth had taken place.

‘Our rules, not China’s’: Obama invokes Beijing threat in defense of Pacific trade deal

The rules of trade in the Asia-Pacific must be written by America, not China, US President Barack Obama has argued in an opinion article that called for a swift ratification of the controversial TPP free trade deal.

“America should write the rules. America should call the shots. Other countries should play by the rules that America and our partners set, and not the other way around,” the president wrote in a piece published by the Washington Post.

Here they are: Hillary's 22 biggest scandals ever

In the years since the memorable Clinton presidency, Hillary has brought America Emailgate and the Benghazi scandal, among others. New developments in the Clinton Foundation scandals emerges almost daily.

Now, it’s Hillary’s “turn” to be president, according to her Democrat supporters.

But in 2015, America is still apparently suffering from “Clinton fatigue.” Results from a Quinnipiac poll published in April revealed between 49 and 56 percent of voters in three significant swing states – Colorado, Virginia and Iowa – believe Hillary is neither honest nor trustworthy.

Can banks individually create money out of nothing? — The theories and the empirical evidence

An empirical test is conducted, whereby money is borrowed from a cooperating bank, while its internal records are being monitored, to establish whether in the process of making the loan available to the borrower, the bank transfers these funds from other accounts within or outside the bank, or whether they are newly created. This study establishes for the first time empirically that banks individually create money out of nothing. The money supply is created as ‘fairy dust’ produced by the banks individually, "out of thin air".

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Back in 1968 there was an important court case which you have probably never heard of (for reasons that will be obvious) called First National Bank of Montgomery V. Jerome Daly, but referred to as the Credit River case. Mr. Daly fought the foreclosure on his home on the principle that due consideration (something of actual value) was not loaned by the bank, as the bank simply created the "money" out of think air, then charged interest on it. The bank's President, Mr. Morgan, admitted on the stand that yes, banks, simply create money out of thin air to loan, and nothing of actual value was pledged by the bank. Mr. Morgan excused this behavior by saying that all banks operate this way, even though there is no actual law that authorizes banks (other than the Federal Reserve) to create money out of thin air. Judge Martin Mahoney took the view that the "consideration" by the bank was both unlawful and unconstitutional. The jury agreed and Mr. Daly kept his home. The 1968 Minnesota Trial Court's decision holding the Federal Reserve Act unconstitutional and void and holding the National Banking Act unconstitutional and void was never appealed or vacated. It was simply declared "bad law" and buried. Mr. Daly's lawyer was disbarred on trumped-up charges and Judge Martin Mahoney was poisoned to death six months later.

France not to Sign TTIP Deal Due To US Position

France cannot sign the EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement due to the attitude of the United States, French Foreign Trade Minister Matthias Fekl said on Tuesday.

Suspending talks is "the most probable option [due to] the mindset of the United States… It is an agreement which, as it stands today, is a bad deal. As it is, France cannot sign [it]," Fekl told Europe 1 radio.

As Polls Open In Indiana, Republicans Just Gave Trump AMAZING NEWS!

The real estate mogul has 56 percent support, more than doubling his advantage over Ted Cruz, who sits at 22 percent. John Kasich rounds out the survey with 14 percent support. An additional 7 percent remain undecided.

Trump is the only Republican candidate with any mathematical path to securing the GOP nomination outright, though Cruz and Kasich are hoping to emerge as the nominee at a contested convention in July should Trump fall short of the requisite 1,237 delegates.

Another Reason for Brexit: EU 'Was a CIA Project from the Beginning'

In a recent piece for The Telegraph, commenting on President Obama's trip to the UK earlier this month to attempt to convince the island nation to vote against Brexit, Evans-Pritchard recalled that "Brexiteers should have been prepared for the shattering intervention of the US," since "the European Union always was an American project."

In fact, the journalist recalled, taking a look back through archival history, one finds that "it was Washington that drove European integration in the late 1940s,", and Washington that "funded it covertly under the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations."

Contrary to popular belief among some in Europe that the US may have viewed European integration as a threat, the project was in actually always seen as an "anchor to American regional interests alongside NATO," all the way back to its inception.
