STORY ALREADY FALLING APART - Lawsuit Accuses Donald Trump of Raping Teen Girl

Johnson filed the lawsuit pro se, meaning she is representing herself. No attorney is listed in the court documents. The phone number she lists in the filing is disconnected. It was previously listed as a cell phone number for a California dentist, who could not be reached.

Her listed address is a house in Twentynine Palms, California, that has been foreclosed and is vacant, neighbors told Radar Online.

Court Decides CIA Officials Accused Of Torture, Experimentation Case Will Proceed

By Brianna Blaschke

For the first time in U.S. history, the CIA and U.S. government will not exercise immunity for war crimes and other atrocities.

Numerous CIA officials are being charged with war crimes against humanity and human experimentation in a court case lawyers are calling “literally unprecedented.”

The case was filed last October by four former detainees, all of whom claimed to be subjected to enhanced interrogation techniques by the CIA. The prisoners were captured and held in the days following the September 11th terrorist attacks...

Trump lawyer calls 'rape' lawsuit a HOAX and says there's no proof accuser exists following allegation a woman was used as a 13-year-old 'sex slave' at billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's 'sex parties' in 1994

'To be clear, there is absolutely no merit to these claims and, based on our investigation, no evidence that the person who has made these allegations actually exists.'

Radar Online reported Thursday night that Epstein's infamous 'little black book,' a record of his contacts seized by the FBI, doesn't include the name Katie Johnson, casting further doubt on the lawsuit's claims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Michelle Fields made her bogus claim that Trump's campaign manager had assaulted her, the internet was quick to track down all the other spurious claims she had made, destroying her story, her credibility, and her career. So, in this latest attempt to smear Trump, it makes sense they would manufacture a fictitious victim, who would be immune to public exposure of a past that simply does not exist.

Livingstone vindicated: There WAS a Nazi-Zionist agreement and Hitler DID support it

The Haavara Agreement was an agreement between Nazi Germany and Zionist German Jews signed on 25 August 1933.

The agreement was finalized after three months of talks by the Zionist Federation of Germany, the Anglo-Palestine Bank (under the directive of the Jewish Agency) and the economic authorities of Nazi Germany.

The agreement was designed to help facilitate the emigration of German Jews to Palestine.

Carl Icahn, the billionaire activist investor who has long been one of the most prominent voices declaring the company to be undervalued, says he has sold his entire stake in the technology firm, citing the risk of China’s influence on the stock.

After years of high growth, reaching triple-digit percentage points in 2015, Apple now sells more in China than it does in the whole of Europe. But sales in the country are now shrinking, with revenue dropping 26% year-on-year in the company’s latest quarterly earnings.

POLITICAL HATCHET JOB IN PROGRESS - Donald Trump furiously denies claims he 'raped a teenager with convicted paedophile'

The alleged assaults are claimed to have taken place from June to September 1994.

Mr Trump said: "The allegations are not only categorically false, but disgusting at the highest level.

Donald Trump is on track for the Republican presidential nomination
"They are clearly framed to solicit media attention or, perhaps, are simply politically motivated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I agree the timing makes this allegation dubious. Why didn't this woman come forward when the other victims did, and Epstein's party island was a hot story?

Perhaps this is intended to "level the playing field" with regard to Ted Cruz' multiple infidelities. But it is interesting that the same corporate media that leaped to Cruz' defense is treating this allegation against Trump as if it just HAS to be real! The insertion of the "Babes for Trump" slideshow hammers home that this is a hatchet job and not real news.

This is the world’s tiniest phone – and it’s unsurprisingly popular with prisoners

The Zanco Fly is said to be the world’s smallest mobile phone – with a tiny 0.66 screen.

It’s for this reason that prisoners are buying them from Amazon, and then hiding them inside themselves.

They’re proving pretty popular too, with one review stating that the phone is ‘very small and easy to hide’.

Another simply claims to have ‘put it up my butt with no problem.’

Former prison inmate Carl Cattermole, who created a guide to prison survival at prisonism.co.uk, said that smuggled phones were ‘everywhere’ in prison.

He said: ‘Things like iPhones are rare in prison. Most phones go up a bum at some point or another, so f**k an iPhone 6 Plus, or, rather, don’t.

‘You’d look like Spongebob Squarepants: a rectangle with limbs hanging off. Having said that, I knew a dwarf who plugged a Blackberry.’

From CNN, September 21, 2001:

United Nations DEMANDS U.S. Pay Reparations For Slavery

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So ... we all get our money back from the IRS? :)

Actually, this is supposedly reparations for slavery during the antebellum era. So, I'll tell you what. You find someone who actually was a slave back in the antebellum era and I will chip in a couple bucks.

On a more serious note, this reparations nonsense has gone out of control. Here is how it works.

Some greedy group picks an historical event which was legal in its time, then demands that people who had nothing to do with that historical event pay money to another group of people who for the most part are also not part of that historical event.

Israel really got the ball rolling with their demands for holocaust reparations, in which the US pays money to Israel for the Holocaust, even though the US opposed Germany in BIG MISTAKE Number 2. Israel also demands money from Germany (Israel demands money from everyone) but the majority of people in Germany being forced to fork over the cash had not even been born when whatever it is that is supposed to have happened... supposedly happened. Little of the money ever actually reaches those few people who were actually in the German slave labor camps.

Israel has leeched a vast sum of wealth using this scam and it is not surprising that other groups are trying to cash in, such as the descendants of antebellum slaves. The fact that nobody alive today was an antebellum slave or an antebellum slaveholder does not deter them, nor the fact that the descendants of antebellum slaves living in the United States actually have far better lives than the African descendants of those who evaded the slave catchers.



Let me illustrate how silly this all is with a simple thought experiment.

My ancestors ran a station on the Underground Railroad helping escaped slaves get to Canada. Although New Hampshire was a free state, escaped slaves, if caught, were returned to their southern owners. So abolitionists set up a network of homes with hidden rooms to hide escaped slaves during the day, as they moved northward by night.

Now, imagine what would happen if I went up to Canada today and demanded the descendants of those escaped slaves pay me for my ancestors' assistance to their ancestors? I would be laughed off of the front porch and rightly so. Although I would have helped my ancestors with the Underground Railroad, the hard fact is that I didn't. I was not alive back them. I can not in all honesty claim responsibility for events that happened before I was born, and neither will I accept guilt for events outside my personal control.

How Israel lobby manufactured UK Labour Party’s anti-Semitism crisis

But an investigation by The Electronic Intifada has found that some of the most prominent stories about anti-Semitism in the party are falsified.

The Electronic Intifada can reveal that a key player in Labour’s “anti-Semitism crisis” covered up his involvement in the Israel lobby.

Most Labour members so accused are in reality being attacked for expressing opinions in favor of Palestinian human rights and particularly for supporting the boycott of Israel.

Labour activists, many of them Jews, have told The Electronic Intifada that false accusations of anti-Semitism are being used as a weapon against Corbyn by the party’s right-wing.

Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord

Ted Cruz’s ‘Alliance’ With John Kasich Hits New Low Point

Speaking to reporters before a rally with Carly Fiorina, his would-be running mate, Mr. Cruz was asked about the status of the agreement, which stipulated that Mr. Kasich would cede Indiana to Mr. Cruz if Mr. Cruz abandoned plans to campaign in New Mexico and Oregon. (Mr. Kasich instantly complicated matters by urging Indiana voters on Monday to support him, anyway.)

“I recognize that the media is all eager to talk about an alliance. There is no alliance,” Mr. Cruz said. “Kasich and I made a determination where to focus our energies, where to focus our assets, where to focus our resources.”

While he said the two agreed that Donald J. Trump would be a disastrous Republican nominee, Mr. Cruz cast Mr. Kasich’s participation in the gambit as something less than altruistic.

The House Just Voted To Give Wall Street Billions From Americans’ Retirement Savings

The House voted 234 to 188 Thursday to undo a rule proposed by the Labor Department earlier this month that would require anyone getting paid to provide retirement investment advice to act in the best interest of retirees. Many people think that’s already how things work, but it isn’t.

The way things work right now is that brokers who oversee retirement savings accounts can be paid extra to steer their clients into unnecessarily expensive funds or excessively risky investments, without disclosing that fact to their clients. That sort of conflicted investment advice costs Americans saving for retirement $17 billion a year, according to the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

To remedy the situation, the Obama administration proposed a fiduciary rule to keep Wall Street from taking so much money in fees from retirement accounts. The financial industry has opposed the rule from the start, saying it will raise costs and limit the advice investors can receive.

The Chelsea Clinton fundraiser that should worry Hillary’s pro-Israel backers

For $250,”friends” — or $1000 for a “champion” (photo included) — you too can attend a fundraiser with Chelsea Clinton for her mother at the home of Michael and Sholeh Chegini in Newport Coast, California, according to an invitation to the event obtained by Right Turn. Michael Chegini served on the board of directors and thereafter the advisory board of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), a notorious group with links to the Iranian regime that opposed, among other things, any sanctions on Iran.

“The Clintons never miss an opportunity to put money ahead of principle,” a spokesman for the Republican Jewish Coalition told me. “They should know better than raising money from folks whose primary concern has been supporting the NIAC — a notorious supporter of the Radical Islamic Mullahs in Iran. Instead as is always the case, the Clintons have thrown principle out the window in exchange for cold hard cash.”

The Good Food Movement Needs Science, Too

Perhaps you’ve heard some organic food advocates say, “We should just roll back the clock and farm the way we used to” — before modern science gave us factory farms and genetically modified ingredients.

Others disagree, saying that we’d all starve if we didn’t use science and technology in farming.

International Corporations Know — And Know How — They’re Raping Us

On April 26th, Britain’s Guardian headlined “TTIP: Chevron lobbied for controversial legal right as ‘environmental deterrent’,” and allowed the public to see, in a more-raw fashion than has ever before been exposed, the extent to which the motivation behind U.S. President Barack Obama’s proposed ‘trade’ deals is actually to transfer to international corporations the sovereignty we traditionally attribute to national governments, so as to cripple the governments’ abilities to regulate against toxic products, exploitation of workers (extending even so far as to allow the outright murder of trade-union organizers).

THE 'ABDICATION' OF THE WHITE MAN

Political puppets generally have a personal buffer between themselves and the big masters. Woodrow Wilson had Edward Mandell House; FDR had Henry Morgenthau; Barack Obama has Valerie Jarrett.

For Winston Churchill, the personal handler, and a probable homosexual lover (here), was Frederick A. Lindemann a physicist whose German-Jewish family arrived in England when he was about 14 years old. He was known to friends as "the Prof" in reference to his position at the University of Oxford, and as "Baron Berlin" to his many detractors because of his German accent and haughty aristocratic manner.

Lindemann believed that a small circle of elites should run the world, resulting in a stable society, "led by supermen and served by helots." He believes that science can yield a race of humans blessed with “the mental makeup of the worker bee.”

U.S. Catholic Bishops Join Mormons, Salvation Army, Others In USSC Amicus Brief Supporting Equal Religious Rights

An obscure but very interesting case involving the resurfacing of a Lutheran school playground is headed for the U.S. Supreme Court. A court in Missouri has ruled that the state can exclude a Lutheran school from its scrap tire program, which uses recycled rubber to resurface asphalt playgrounds. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, who jointly filed a 40-page amicus brief along with Protestant groups in support of the Lutheran school, issued a press release noting, "The case involves a Free Exercise Clause challenge to a decision by the State of Missouri denying a grant for playground resurfacing to an otherwise eligible religious school solely because of its religious affiliation." The amicus brief is actually quite interesting reading, chock-full of long-established legal precedents and case law regarding benefits given to religious organizations by the state.

These words, penned by journalist George Seldes decades ago, have seemingly been ignored by American readers.

The Pentagon’s Medal Inflation

It should be clear that the Global War on Terror (GWOT) launched by George W. Bush and perpetuated by Barack Obama is a bust. It is now the longest war in U.S. history; it is now the second most expensive war in U.S. history; and there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

More Steps Toward WW III

On April 27th, NATO member-state Turkey, which on 24 November 2015 had shot down a Russian Su-24 fighter jet near the Syria-Turkey border, refused Russia’s request to investigate Turkey’s having murdered the surviving Russian pilot. (The plane’s weapons-systems officer was rescued, but the pilot was shot dead while parachuting down from the plane.) Turkey admits having in custody the man, Alparslan Celik, who murdered the parachuting pilot. On April 25th, Turkish authorities had said that they might try Celik for murder; but, now, the Turkish Ambassador in Moscow says Turkey won’t.
