"We moved, on the next day, crossing in our path a deep creek and the Little Seneca river, and after marching six miles we reached the castle, which consisted of 128 houses, mostly very large and elegant. The town was beautifully situated, almost encircled with a clear flat which extends for a number of miles, where the most extensive fields of corn were, and every kind of vegetable that can be conceived. The whole army was immediately engaged in destroying the crops. The corn was collected and burned in houses and kilns, that the enemy might not reap the least advantage from it, which method we have pursued in every other place... Every creek and river has been traced, and the whole country explored in search of Indian settlements; and I am well persuaded, that, except one... there is not a single town left in the country of the five nations." -- General John Sullivan 1779

Hillary’s “Dirt Machine”, Warring Against Bernie Sanders. Totalitarian Thinking, Feminism and the Clintons

The Clinton campaign is showing signs of desperation. Bernie Sanders is not only putting in a fight, but offering firm punches in the electoral bouts. The days are early: a narrow Clinton victory in the Iowa caucus; and a very convincing showing by Sanders in the New Hampshire primary.

Rattled, the dirt machine was bound to get busy against the septuagenarian Vermont socialist. Fittingly, the issue of sex and gender had to come into play, showing how the ideas factory had run dry in the winter months. “Obviously,” suggested stormy dissident feminist Camille Paglia, “they are desperate because Hillary’s numbers are falling, so they are really pulling out the heavy artillery.”

'15-year-old' Somali accused of stabbing Swedish social worker to death at children's refugee centre IS over 18, says Migration Agency

A Somalian migrant alleged to have stabbed a Swedish social worker to death and thought to be aged only 15 is now said to be at least three years older, it has emerged.

Alexandra Mezher, 22, was killed after she tried to break up a knife fight at an adolescent migrant centre where she worked in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Police say she had intervened when Youssaf Khaliif Nuur launched an unprovoked attack on another resident at the centre, suffering fatal knife wounds to the back and thigh.

Evgeny Lebedev is expected to close the Indy and Sindy print editions as soon as tonight. Of the 150 full-time staff, just 20 or so look like they’ll moving over to the i paper. It will not be difficult for the owners to find voluntary redundancies. Many journalists at the Indy will be loathe to work for the much-derided, clickbait-obsessed online offering.

Meanwhile the Guardian is imposing 20% cuts, with staff warned in an email this morning that “As our staff costs are by far our biggest overhead, one outcome of the budgeting process may be that redundancies are proposed”. They are looking at 100 redundancies, and according to Beth Rigby they want to start with their “on leave” columnist Seumas Milne. He is in line for a £90,000 payout.

The King of Bullsh*t News

Last November, within a few hours of each other, some of the planet’s biggest news websites published an irresistible story. An attractive Argentinian teacher called Lucita Sandoval, from Santiago del Estero, had been having sex with her 16-year-old student, and the video of their tryst had made its way to a porn website. With its heady blend of titillation and depravity, it was the perfect tabloid scandal.

Websites including the Daily Mirror and Metro in the UK and the New York Daily News in the US duly published the story, alongside an image showing the teacher posing poolside in her bikini. “Teacher suspended after sex session with teen pupil ends up on hardcore porn website,” read the Mirror’s headline. The Daily Mail – the most successful English-language newspaper website in the world – even went so far as to claim that there would be a criminal investigation, and that this wasn’t the first time that the teacher in question had sexual relations with a student.

3-minute rap video: Obama continues illegal US Wars of Aggression that’s killed 30 million+ since WW2. Arrests are when now?

*hyperlinks/video live at source*


Lowkey’s 3-minute rap begins with history that validates global polling that the US is the greatest threat to peace; voted three times more dangerous than any other country.

The data confirm this conclusion:

Since WW2, Earth has had 248 armed conflicts. The US started 201 of them (81%).
These US-started armed attacks have killed ~30 million and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men.
The US has war-murdered more than Hitler’s Nazis.
US official reports now confirm all “reasons” the US told for current armed attacks were known to be false as they were told.
These lie-started US wars are not even close to lawful.

Unsound Banking: Why Most of the World’s Banks Are Headed for Collapse

You’re likely thinking that a discussion of “sound banking” will be a bit boring. Well, banking should be boring. And we’re sure officials at central banks all over the world today—many of whom have trouble sleeping—wish it were.

This brief article will explain why the world’s banking system is unsound, and what differentiates a sound from an unsound bank. I suspect not one person in 1,000 actually understands the difference. As a result, the world’s economy is now based upon unsound banks dealing in unsound currencies. Both have degenerated considerably from their origins.

FLASHBACK - Robert Kennedy Assassination: Intimidation of a witness

This is the official LAPD audio tape of the lie detector test given to witness Sandy Serrano who claimed she saw a woman in a polka dot dress running from the Robert Kennedy assassination exclaiming "We shot him". The interviewing officer, LAPD Detective Hank Hernandez, was rumored to have intelligence connections, which would explain his having administered a lie detector test to the dictator of Venzuela just prior to doing the same to Sandy Serrano. This audio tape excerpt of the interview was obtained by Serrano's lawyers when she sued the LAPD.

I include this audio sample here to prove an historical tendency for law enforcement officials with intelligence connections to harass and intimidate witnesses. There is no confusing whatsoever that Hernandez' intent is to convince Sandy Serrano to alter her story. Hernandez spent 50 minutes trying to get Sandy to alter her story. This tape covers only a small portion of what went on.

Immediately After Texas Legalized Open Carry, Something Widely Unexpected Happened

As for the effect of passing the law in Texas, the outcome has not been as predicted. One fear expressed by the open carry opponents was the idea that people seeing someone carrying a firearm would panic and call law enforcement. In Tarrant County, which includes the cities of Fort Worth and Arlington, there were no such incidents in January.

In an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Cpl. Tracey Knight, a spokeswoman for the Fort Worth Police Department, said there have been no issues from her department’s perspective. “We do not have anything interesting to report,” Knight said. “Two calls so far, no issues. We have no concerns and we have had no problems.”

Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson told the Star-Telegram, “I said before this became law that I thought it was going to be much ado about nothing, but I didn’t know it was going to be this much nothing.”

FLASHBACK - Marc Tucker's "Dear Hillary" Letter

Marc Tucker is president of the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE). He wrote an 18-page letter, now famous as Marc Tucker's "Dear Hillary" Letter, to Hillary Clinton a week after the Clintons were first elected President. At the time Hillary served with Tucker on the Board of NCEE, they were (and remain) comrades. The letter lays out the master plan of the Clinton Administration to take over the entire U.S. educational system so that it can serve national economic planning of the workforce. The letter makes it clear that Hillary participated in the development of that plan some time before the election, though it was scarcely reported at the time. The plan is sweeping in scope, and largely signed into law in 1994 by Clinton's Democratically controlled Congress (in the Goals 2000 Act, the School-to-Work Act, and the reauthorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act).

The court filing paints a picture of then-U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta and then-State Attorney Barry Krischer bowing to pressure by Epstein’s powerful cadre of attorneys to keep the victims in the dark about the deal until after Epstein pleaded guilty to two minor state charges.

These nations are essentially economic dead weight for Europe considering their plight. That said, all financial markets are cyclical – nothing straight-lines. And indeed, despite the apparent inevitable downfall that awaits the Eurozone as a result of the PIIGS, the associated equity markets have actually been quite buoyant for the better part of the last 4 years.

American and EU leaders are making a "grievous error" by taking Russian President Vladimir Putin for their ally in the fight against Islamic State, billionaire investor George Soros has stated.

According toWikipedia “Two IRA members were to enter the shop disguised as delivery men, then force the customers out at gunpoint and plant a time bomb with a short fuse. However, when the IRA members entered the shop with the bomb, it exploded prematurely. One of the IRA members was killed along with a UDA member and eight Protestant civilians.

The iceberg, called B09B, which is the size of a small country and hit the area of Commonwealth Bay they inhabit in the Antarctic in 2011.


The study noted: "A colony on the east cost of the on the eastern fringe of Commonwealth Bay, just 8km, from the fast ice edge was thriving, indicating the arrival of B09B and fast ice expansion."

The team observed the effects of the iceberg and found it had caused sea ice to expand by up to 60 kilometers, meaning the penguin colony now have to travel almost 120 kilometers to get to the ice edge to feed in the sea.

Are 'superdelegates' Hillary Clinton's secret weapon? (+video)

Superdelegates don’t have to vote for the winner of their state’s caucus or primary. Under party rules, they can choose whom they please. For many of them, that’s already Mrs. Clinton. There are 712 superdelegates, and at least 394 have pledged to support her. Forty-four have announced they are for Senator Sanders. The rest remain up for grabs.

Former Top Obama Official Just Went Rogue And Dropped Bombshell About Hillary- ‘Unbelievable…’

President Obama’s former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) believes that Hillary Clinton should be disqualified from being president in light of her alleged gross mishandling of classified material.

Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn (Ret.) told the Daily Caller, “This is unbelievable. I don’t think anybody should be talking about her being potentially the next President of the United States.”

“I think Hillary Clinton, for the good of the country, should step down and let this FBI investigation play out,” Flynn added.

Hillary ‘Winning’ More Delegates Than Sanders Proves the Election Is Rigged

Ask anyone who has decided not to vote in the upcoming elections why they have chosen to disengage and the answer usually boils down to the belief that our votes don’t matter.

After the popular vote was won by Al Gore in the 2000 election, and George W. Bush was nonetheless appointed to the presidency, many came to see the democratic voting process as more symbolic than anything. The powerful, many have concluded, will determine the outcome of the election, based on two candidates that they find acceptable for us to select. If another should win instead, some strange technicalities will give things to whoever mostly closely reinforces the establishment.

Many of us saw it coming a long time ago — increasing confrontation between liberty proponents and the corrupt federal establishment leading to increasing calls by political elites and bureaucrats to apply to American citizens the terrorism countermeasures designed for foreign combatants.

My stance has always been that the elites would wait until there was ample social and political distraction; a fog of fear allowing them to move more aggressively against anti-globalists. We are not quite there yet, but the ground is clearly being prepared.

Explosive Testimony in Sirhan/RFK Assassination Parole Hearing

Sirhan Bishara Sirhan was originally scheduled for release in 1984 but, after intense political pressure, his parole date was rescinded and he has since been denied 14 times.

In order for you to make an accurate determination of Sirhan Sirhan’s parole, you need to know my feelings on this case and the full picture of what actually happened.

Sirhan, I forgive you.

The evidence clearly shows you were not the gunman who shot Robert Kennedy. There is clear evidence of a second gunman in that kitchen pantry who shot Robert Kennedy. One of the bullets – the fatal bullet – struck Bob in the back of the head. Two bullets struck Bob literally in his back. A fourth bullet struck the back of his coat’s upper right seam and passed harmlessly through his coat. I believe all four of those bullets were fired from a second gunman standing behind Bob. You were never behind Bob, nor was Bob’s back ever exposed to you.

From Stalemate to Checkmate: What the Siege of Aleppo Means for Turkey

Pick Your Poison: Assad or the Kurds... The catch is that the return of the regime may prove a less bitter pill for Turkey to swallow. Indeed, it is perfectly plausible that maneuvering Turkey into just such a choice—to either ditch its support for the rebels or digest the emergence of a PKK-dominated Kurdish statelet—was just what Assad intended when he ceded control of large chunks of the border to the Kurds in 2012. YPG officials say they are ready to help the rebels—and Turkey—to fend off further Russian-backed advances and preserve their links to Aleppo. They claim they could do so by pushing eastwards from the areas they control in and around the town of Afrin or by closing in from the Tishreen dam to the west. In both cases, ISIS would get rolled back as well. The payback for the YPG would be to achieve its strategic goal of linking up the Kurdish run zones to the west of the Euphrates with that of Afrin.

Turkish planes violate Iraqi airspace to attack PKK positions

The Turkish Air Force launched a number of airstrikes on Wednesday that targeted the Kurdistan Workers Party’s (PKK) positions inside the town of Sidakan in the ‘Irbil Governorate of Iraq-Kurdistan. This is the 2nd time this year that the Turkish Air Force has deliberately violated Iraqi airspace to strike the PKK’s positions inside the country. Unlike the U.S.-led Coalition, the Turkish Air Force does not target the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) inside Iraq; instead, they concentrate on the Kurdish forces that are affiliated with the PKK. The PKK is considered a terrorist organization inside of Turkey – they are banned from all political institutions and their members are frequently arrested by Turkish police.

According to Toronto’s Globe and Mail: Opponents of Canada’s $15-billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia are taking Ottawa to court in an attempt to block shipments of the combat vehicles, a move that could force the governing Liberals to explain how they justify the sale to a human-rights pariah under weapon-export restrictions.

British authorities have denied the claim of London´s Telegraph magazine, but remained unambiguous about the decision that they send to Jordan about 1,600 troops and 300 units of combat techniques. Near the Jordanian-Syrian border is now deployed several hundred combat vehicles of Saudi Arabia which announced that with the approval of the United States is ready to enter Syria. All under the pretext of the fight against the Islamic State, which is actually not along the border of Syria and Jordan, but only so-called moderate opposition supported by the West and the various factions of al-Qaeda. These terrorist formations are facing defeat and are faced with rebellions in the Syrian cities which are kept under control. It is remarkable that representatives of the so-called moderate Syrian opposition returned last week from failed negotiations in Geneva back by the private jet in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

Russian PM: Foreign offensive in Syria could spark 'world war'

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev warned Thursday that if Arab forces entered the Syrian war, they could spark a "new world war" and urged ceasefire talks instead.

Asked about proposals by some Arab countries to enter the conflict under a US command, Medvedev said, "that would be bad because ground offensives usually lead to wars becoming permanent."

"The Americans and our Arabic partners must think hard about this: do they want a permanent war?" he was quoted as telling the German Handelsblatt business daily.

"Do they really think they would win such a war very quickly? That's impossible, especially in the Arabic world. There everyone is fighting against everyone...everything is far more complicated. It could take years or decades."
