Facebook Will Release 3000 Russia-Linked Election Ads To Congress

Given that these ads supposedly were responsible for swaying the election in Trump's favor - not, say, the many miscalculations undertaken by the Clinton campaign, the undersampled polls which gave the Hillary nearly 100% confidence she would win, or the inherent failings of the Democrats' scandal-tarnished candidate - we imagine they'll eventually make their way into the public domain, considering Mueller's investigation has proven to be a sieve for sensitive materials.

In a statement released shortly after the Politico story broke, Facebook General Counsel Colin Stretch said the company made its decision after "an extensive legal and policy review" and that the company remains "deeply committed to safeguarding user content, regardless of the users' nationality, and ads are user content."

Listening to the Donald at the UN – The Saker

No matter how bad things look now, Hillary President would have been infinitely worse!

In conclusion, what I take away from Trump's UN speech is a sense of relief for the rest of the planet and a sense of real worry for the US. Ever since the Neocons overthrew Trump and made him what is colloquially referred to as their “bitch” the US foreign policy has come to a virtual standstill.

Sure, the Americans talk a lot, but at least they are doing nothing. That paralysis, which is a direct consequence of the internal infighting, is a blessing for the rest of the planet

DAILY BEAST ARTICLE FROM OCTOBER 2016: PENTAGON PAID FOR FAKE ‘AL QAEDA’ VIDEOS

The Pentagon gave a controversial U.K. PR firm over half a billion dollars to run a top secret propaganda program in Iraq, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism can reveal. Bell Pottinger’s output included short TV segments made in the style of Arabic news networks and fake insurgent videos which could be used to track the people who watched them, according to a former employee.

International Firearm Ownership and Homicide Rates

Statistical data will not convince people who have made up their minds. They can always find another statistical analysis that agrees with them. Most people have not made up their minds. They can be educated. The more people know about the debate over the Second Amendment, the more likely they are to become Second Amendment supporters.

The Biggest Lie: The CIA and NSA Produce National Security and Need Secrecy

What we really need for 9/11 truth is to open the files of the CIA, NSA and FBI, and we need it for truth in many other realms too. The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have a petition that seeks a new and truly independent investigation. This is a step in the right direction. We need far more than that. We need to penetrate the secrecy of the CIA and NSA on a timely and complete basis, not 50 years after the fact and only partially. Their files have to be opened. We cannot let the government continue to hide behind “national security”.

"Extraordinary & Worrisome" - WSJ Demands To Know How FBI 'Meddled' In 2016 Elections

When Donald Trump claimed in March that he’d had his “wires tapped” prior to the election, the press and Obama officials dismissed the accusation as a fantasy. We were among the skeptics, but with former director James Comey’s politicized FBI the story is getting more complicated.

CNN reported Monday that the FBI obtained a warrant last year to eavesdrop on Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s campaign manager from May to August in 2016. The story claims the FBI first wiretapped Mr. Manafort in 2014 while investigating his work as a lobbyist for Ukraine’s ruling party. That warrant lapsed, but the FBI convinced the court that administers the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to issue a second order as part of its probe into Russian meddling in the election.

Guess who has lived in a condo in Trump Tower since 2006? Paul Manafort.

The story suggests the monitoring started in the summer or fall, and extended into early this year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this moment in its history, all that I expect from the Occupied Uhninged Surveilled States of America, is continuous, pathological lying.

That is why it is so important that the Independent Media in this country not lose heart; our day is coming.

Markets run health care better than government mandates

Patients have no option to switch insurance companies or hospitals because such freestanding entities have long been abolished, and with them, any hope of free-market accountability or efficiency. Abandoning the unique principles our revolutionary nation was founded on runs the risk of betraying those very same people—the poor, weak, and sick—we seek to protect.

Driving Miss Crazy: Morgan Freeman Declares War on Russia at Rob Reiner's Behest

Social media is awash with outrage after Hollywood megastar Morgan Freeman appeared in a propaganda video issued by a newly-established anti-Russian non-profit group, in which he declares Washington is at war with Moscow.

Morgan Freeman is an almost universally beloved figure in the West, and his famed golden voice almost universally beloved across the West, so it's understandable why the newly-established Committee to Investigate Russia might choose him to front its propaganda campaign.

However, initial reactions to the clip on social media suggest the move might've been a titanic misfire, as even supporters of the #TheRussiansDidIt hypothesis criticizing the group, and slamming the video's incendiary tone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder what a forensic accounting of the group sponsoring this video would reveal about who actually paid for this?!?

The "cozying up" between the US government/military and "Hollowood", over decades, is no big secret.

Shell corporations, posing as non-profits, are a common feature in the American business landscape these days.

Any professional respect I once had for this very capable actor, which was huge, has just been shattered into absolute oblivion.

Did he not realise, upon accepting the gig, which was allegedly fronted by Rob Reiner, that he is actually working for the military/industrial complex of the Occupied, Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika?!?

Because the ultimate "winner" in the ratcheting up of tensions between the OUSSA and Russia, will be only that warmongering gang of thugs which manufacture weapons, in terms of more huge outlays in military spending, as the Deep State is actually planning to go to war against Russia AND China, to prevent the rise of the ruble and yuan against the petrodollar.

Washington plans to Nuke Russia and China

And how many defense companies may be in Rob Reiner's financial portfolio at this moment?!?

He is rumored to be worth 60 million in net worth at this point in his career

Did all of that come only from residuals and socially conscious investing?!? One has to wonder.

Push to unseal the draft Whitewater indictment against Hillary Clinton gets court date

A federal appeals court will hear a case brought by Judicial Watch on Friday to make public draft indictments of Hillary Clinton from the Whitewater scandal in the 1990s.

Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group that files Freedom of Information Act requests, wants copies of the documents that the National Archives and Records Administration has declined to release. It filed a FOIA request for the documents in March 2015 and in October 2015 the group sued for the 238 pages of responsive records.

According to Judicial Watch: “The National Archives argues that the documents should be kept secret, citing grand jury secrecy and Clinton’s personal privacy.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the judge on this case is a Clinton or Obama apointee, the fix is most probably in.

But if they are not.....drip...drip...drip.....

China says North Korean situation more serious by the day

The situation on the Korean peninsula is getting more serious by the day and cannot be allowed to spin out of control, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told his German counterpart, the state-run China News Service said on Thursday.

A resolution to the North Korea issue cannot only rely on sanctions and not talks, Wang said, meeting German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel on the sidelines of a United Nations meeting in New York on Wednesday, the report added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ambassador Yi is absolutely correct in his assessment.

China absolutely does NOT want to get mired in a war between the US and North Korea, and is very teed off that the confrontation has pushed tensions in the region to a knife's edge.

The US tolerates a nuclear-armed China; a nuclear-armed Israel; a nuclear-armed Russia; a nuclear-armed Pakistan; and a nuclear-armed India; why is it pathologically incapable, under President Trump's watch, of tolerating a nuclear-armed North Korea?!?

These weapons are developed as a deterrent to invasion, and would never be used in a first-strike capability by North Korea, because they understand that should they do so, the US, South Korea. and Japan would have their country reduced to molten glass in a heartbeat.

TRUMP FALLS IN LINE WITH INTERVENTIONISM

In discussing President Trump, there is always the soft prejudice of low expectations – people praise him for reading from a Teleprompter even if his words make little sense – but there is no getting around the reality that his maiden address to the United Nations General Assembly must rank as one of the most embarrassing moments in America’s relations with the global community.

Trump offered a crude patchwork of propaganda and bluster, partly delivered as a campaign speech praising his own leadership – boasting about the relatively strong U.S. economy that he mostly inherited from President Obama – and partly reflecting his continued subservience to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump did NOT inherit "...relatively strong U.S. economy" from President Obama; look at all the corporate bankruptcies which have happened in 2016, and 2017, to begin to comprehend the problems with the US economy, which have seen massive Federal and personal debt increase, coupled with the steady outsourcing/offshoring of jobs which used to be the mainstay of the American middle class.

But the rest of the article is absolutely correct, in pointing out President Trump's embracing everything that has failed, spectacularly, with US foreign policy under Bush's and Obama's regimes.

And it appears he is about to double down with North Korea, Iran, and perhaps even Venezuela.

IF, in fact, the US government goes to war against both North Korea and Iran, and choses to fire the first shot, we may well see China defending North Korea, and Russia defending Iran, militarily.

I wish someone who has the President's ear, other than the official triumverate of Mc Master, Kelly, and Mattis, would politely inform President Trump that the US military does not have the money; the manufacturing; the weaponry; or the troop strength to positively militarily engage either country at this point.

After a show of force in Syria, Russia has other countries clamoring for their weapons, because they work as advertised; most American weapons, unfortunately, do not.

Need I remind you of the utter fluster cluck and debacle which is the Lockheed Martin's F-35, which has cost taxpayers billions, but still cannot perform to speck, and may take billions more to ever fix?!?

I rest my case.

DHS PAYS POLICE MILLIONS TO TICKET AND PROSECUTE MOTORISTS

It used to be the DOJ, COPS, NHTSA and the USDOT were responsible for paying police to ticket motorists.

In the past few years, things have taken a turn for the worse. It now appears that DHS has become the largest cash provider for police departments.

What does that mean for motorists?

It means more tickets.

A recent article in the Knoxville News Sentinel, reveals that the Blount County Sheriff's Office received $91,488 from DHS to create 'specialized enforcement' on The Dragon, a section of U.S. Highway 129 near the North Carolina state line.

Another article in the Tennessean revealed how DHS is giving prosecutors millions to target motorists.

"State Department of Safety and Homeland Security Commissioner David Purkey was joined by Vic Donoho, director of the Tennessee Highway Safety Office, in Dickson on Aug. 30 as one part of a four-city, statewide tour Wednesday to announce $19 million in federal grants for programs to reduce road fatalities."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When citations become revenue generators for cities and states, expect them to increase exponentially from now on.

In light of the fact that Mike and I are driving an 18 year old crudmobile, we tend to treat it very gently, and generally drive very conservatively.

But for those out there driving in states where a radar detector is legal to use, it might not be a bad investment right now.

U.S. DEFENSE SECRETARY JIM MATTIS WEIGHS USING “KINETIC WEAPON” ON NORTH KOREA

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis hinted at using a kinetic weapon on Tuesday while discussing tensions with North Korea when he made a Freudian slip.

Mattis was asked whether there was “any military option the US can take with North Korea that would not put Seoul at grave risk,” Mattis responded, “Yes, there are, but I will not go into details.”

Later during the press conference, another reporter questioned Mattis and caught him off-guard:

“Just to clarify, you said that there were possible military options that would not create a grave risk to Seoul,” a reporter asked. “Are we talking kinetic options as well?”

“Yes, I don’t want to go into that,” Mattis responded.

Previously, Mattis stated that a war with North Korea would “involve the massive shelling of an ally’s capital, (South Korea) which is one of the most densely packed cities on earth.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But can this weapon prevent the deployment of heavy conventional artillery, as is commonly known to be dispersed in bunkers all over North Korea, and aimed at South Korea?!?

That is a question I wish some reporter would ask Sec-Def Mattis, and soon.

Nestlé Makes Billions Bottling Water It Pays Nearly Nothing For

Last year, U.S. bottled water sales reached $16 billion, up nearly 10 percent from 2015, according to Beverage Marketing Corp. They outpaced soda sales for the first time as drinkers continue to seek convenience and healthier options and worry about the safety of tap water after the high-profile contamination in Flint, Mich., about a two-hour drive from Mecosta. Nestlé alone sold $7.7 billion worth worldwide, with more than $343 million of it coming from Michigan, where the company bottles Ice Mountain Natural Spring Water and Pure Life, its purified water line.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This thievery of what should be clean, public resources for water, should be criminal, and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Unfortunately with Nestle, which I am sure has a thoroughly deserved reputation for buying local and federal politicians, in order to bend them to their corporate agendas, that may well happen only when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

IT HAS STARTED: CREEPING GLOBAL DE-DOLLARIZATION

The issue of when a global reserve currency begins or ends is not an exact science. There are no press releases announcing it, and neither are there big international conferences that end with the signing of treaties and a photo shoot. Nevertheless we can say with confidence that the reign of every world reserve currency has to come to and end at some point in time. During a changeover from one global currency to another, gold (and to a lesser extent silver) has always played a decisive role. Central banks and governments have long been aware that the dollar has a sell-by date as a reserve currency. But it has taken until now for the subject to be discussed openly. The fact that the issue has been on the radar of a powerful bank like JP Morgan for at least five years, should give one pause. Questions regarding the global reserve currency are not exactly discussed on CNBC every day. Most mainstream economists avoid the topic like the plague. The issue is too politically charged.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the BRIC nations bypassing the dollar completely in their trade, we are seeing the wheels starting to come off the car represented by the petrodollar, and with amazing rapidity.

23 Countries Now Abandoning US Dollar

Picking up some gold and silver (for its melt value, not numismatic value), if at all possible, may not be a bad thing right now.

Karl Marx was right on at least one thing; all wars are economic in origin.

Look at who is getting demonized right now in the corporate presstitute media, outside of North Korea; China, Russia, Venezuela, and Iran. What do these countries have in common?!?

They have stopped using the US dollar in international trading.

SCIENCE FOR SALE: SHOCKING EMAILS REVEAL EDITOR OF FOOD SCIENCE JOURNAL WAS ON MONSANTO’S PAYROLL AT $400 PER HOUR

(Natural News) Recently released court documents reveal what many people have long suspected: Monsanto had a hand in the retraction of a groundbreaking study that left little doubt about the dangers of glyphosate in a prominent food science journal.

Monsanto will do anything to protect the reputation of Roundup and its other herbicide products – which earned them $1.9 billion in gross profits in 2015 alone – and that includes silencing their detractors.

It has now emerged that the Editor in Chief of the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology who oversaw the famous study’s retraction was on Monsanto’s payroll. This is a conflict of interest at best, and possibly something far more underhanded, and they might have gotten away with it had their lawyers succeeded in preventing their internal documents from being released in a class action lawsuit filed against the firm by cancer patients.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Seralini sued, in order to reclaim his professional reputation, and won.

Monsanto PR war falls short: Séralini wins lawsuit

One of the most horrific, immoral actions on behalf of scientists is science for sale, to endorse anything for a buck. This includes vaccines, or alleged
treatments that are supposed to make people better, but frequently do not.

Remember, back in the day, when doctors promoted the smoking of cigarettes?!?

I am old enough to remember these adverts.

Vintage Ads of Doctors Endorsing Tobacco


Doctors, American Medical Association hawked cigarettes as healthy for consumers

Cigarettes were once "physician tested and approved

More Doctors Smoke Camels than any other cigarette

To create better health for yourself, and those you care about, please ignore, don't buy, and don't eat, GMO food, as though it were the plague.

Talk to the manager of your local big-box store, or your market, and let them know that you are willing to pay more to insure the food you are eating is GMO free, or that you will change where you go to buy your groceries if the store will not offer gmo-free food.

Loss of revenue is something these stores do not want to see happen; if enough of us have that conversation with these mangers, our ability to get GMO free food will be greater.

LOVING OUR DEBT-SERFDOM: OUR NEOFEUDAL STATUS QUO

Democracy (i.e. political influence) and ownership of productive assets are the exclusive domains of the New Aristocracy.

I have often used the words neoliberal, neocolonial and neofeudal to describe our socio-economic-political status quo. Here are my shorthand descriptions of each term:

1. Neoliberal: the commoditization / financialization of every asset, input (such as labor) and output of the economy; the privatization of the public commons, and the maximizing of private profits while costs and losses are socialized, i.e. transferred to the taxpayers.

2. Neocolonial: the exploitation of the domestic populace using the same debt-servitude model used to subjugate, control and extract profits from overseas populations.

3. Neofeudal: the indenturing of the workforce via debt and financial repression to a new Aristocracy; the disempowerment of the workforce into powerless debt-serfs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

After the deaths and maimings for life of so many of our brave military service people in Iraq and Afganinstan,ultimately for control of the oil pipelines and mineral resources of these countries, and my nacent, dawning understanding of Karl Marx's statement that "all wars are economic in nature", I can no longer buy into anything the corporate presstitutes are saying. They may get the weather correctly, but even that can be problematic.

The Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled State of America has never been a true meritocracy; it has always been about power, money, and influence, of which I have precious little.

But I have never bought into victimhood or identity politics, which I think, has been a reasonbly healthy way in which to behave. As a 68 year old, still working woman, an equity feminist, and a published composer, I appreciate what I can still bring to the table, in terms of both art and business.

I will not be defined by a corpratocracy which may dictate that I am "over the hill". You would never hear that from the clients for whom I do marketing!! :-)

If I’d said the words ‘Morgan Freeman’ to you earlier this week, and asked what they meant to you, I’m sure you’d have replied along the lines of: ‘Kind and friendly looking elderly actor with a rich speaking voice who specializes in playing benign roles- including God.

I’m sure you would not have said: ‘Idiotic front man for a hard-right neocon operation backed by Bush-era warmongers and a former Director of National Intelligence to demonize Russia and make the new Cold War even colder.’

Sadly, that’s what The Morg has become.

I wouldn't worry about it. Back in 2005 Morgan Freeman said we were at war with the Martians!

FLASHBACK - The "Pod People" And The PlaneThat Crashed Into the Pentagon

As we run up to yet another anniversary of the 9-11 false-flag attacks, the government's controlled assets on the web are once again pushing the "no plane at the Pentagon" hoax as hard as they can, to give the corporate media an easy means to discredit those who question the official story while avoiding the really tough questions like, "Why did the BBC announce the collapse of World Trade Center 7 twenty six minutes before it actually happened?" Or, "How did President Bush's Secret Service know he was not a target sitting in that school on Florida?"
The media cannot ask, let alone answer, those questions, so the propagandists gin up this "No plane" theory and plant it online to give the corporate media an easy handle with which to ridicule and dismiss the whole idea of doubting the official story of 9-11.

How the UN Covers for US Aggression

UN is not out to get the U.S. Rather, it has largely been America’s tool since its inception, it has repeatedly covered Uncle Sam’s overly-exposed butt as he (a.k.a. “the royal we”) has gone around the world on a three decade-long military bender since the end of the Cold War.

And therein lies the truly pernicious part of the Trumped-up case against the U.N. … because, like so much of America’s growing cult of grievance, it reflects an ever-widening gap between America’s stated ideals and its self-serving behavior around the world.

The arrogance conveyed by Trump’s speech is unprecedented.

Moscow wonders what Russian flag has to do with BBC story on jihadist propaganda in UK

The Russian Embassy in the UK was outraged after a BBC story about online jihadist propaganda in the UK featured a Russian flag. Moscow wondered what the tricolor has to do with extremists on British soil.

The BBC article dubbed ‘UK 'biggest audience' in Europe for jihadist web content’ appeared on the website on Tuesday. The report cited a study by the Policy Exchange think tank, saying that “online jihadist propaganda attracts more clicks in the UK than any other country in Europe.”

The think tank doesn’t mention Russia at all in its 131-page long report. Nor does the BBC story.

However, the cover picture for the story featured vague figures with smartphones against the background of the Russian white-blue-red tricolor.

Rob Reiner and Morgan Freeman Declare ‘War’ on Russia

“People always joke that he’s the voice of God,” Rob Reiner says of Morgan Freeman. And while that is a role Freeman has portrayed in multiple films, he also has some experience playing the president of the United States.

The first time the Oscar-winning actor took on the role of president, in 1998’s Deep Impact, he was charged with protecting the human race from a giant comet. In a video released Tuesday for Reiner’s newly formed Committee to Investigate Russia, Freeman addresses a different type of existential threat.

“We have been attacked,” Freeman says into the camera. “We are at war.”

The actor is talking about the coordinated cyber attacks that intelligence agencies believe Russia executed against the U.S. in an effort to elect Donald Trump. “We need our president to speak directly to us and tell us the truth,” Freeman says, as he sits behind a desk and delivers the message he and Reiner want to hear from Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I just lost all respect for Morgan Freeman.

Bin Laden's son calls on jihad against Bashar Al Assad

Hamza bin Laden, the son of a notorious Saudi terrorist Osama bin Laden, has called on Sunni Muslims to carry out a new jihad against the Syrian President Bashar Al Assad and his government in order to “liberate” Syria from the hands of what he described as “infidels.”

A voice recording released overnight on jihadist social media accounts is purported to be that of Hamza bin Laden who is now said to be about 28 years old.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not as surprising as one might think when you recall that Osama Bin Laden was a CIA asset under the code name Tim Osman, and no doubt his son has been recruited to fill his father's shoes.

The Senate’s Military Spending Increase Alone Is Enough to Make Public College Free

One of the most controversial proposals put forward by Sen. Bernie Sanders during the 2016 presidential campaign was a pledge to make tuition free at public colleges and universities. Critics from both parties howled that the pie-in-the-sky idea would bankrupt the country. Where, after all, would the money come from?

Those concerns were brushed aside Monday night, as the Senate overwhelmingly approved an $80 billion annual increase in military spending>>>

Manafort Calls On DOJ To Release His Intercepted Phone Calls; Demands Investigation Of Leaks

Less than 24 hours after CNN triggered the latest outbreak of 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' by relaying information from anonymous sources that Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manfort has been under surveillance by the FBI since 2014, Manafort has fired back by calling on the Department of Justice to release all transcripts of his tapped phone calls so that the American public "can come to the same conclusion as the DOJ — there is nothing there." Per the Daily Caller:

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is calling on the Justice Department to release transcripts of any intercepted communications he may have had with foreigners.

Manafort, a longtime Republican political consultant, also called on the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate the leak of details of secret surveillance warrants obtained by U.S. investigators.

F-35 Ejection Seat to Kill, Wound 22 US Pilots - Government Watchdog

The F-35 Joint Program Office has skimped out on spending a few million dollars to conduct more thorough testing of the fifth-generation plane’s potentially lethally flawed ejection seat despite its generous $400 billion budget.

Given how much flight time the US military plans to use the F-35 for, 22 pilots are projected to suffer injuries or be killed over the lifetime of the plane’s use because of insufficient testing, according to the report first obtained by CQ Roll Call.

The internal report created by the Technical Airworthiness Authority said the failure to implement extra safety tests is bound to prove “catastrophic,” the Stripes report states. “No less than $1 million” and 9 to 12 months of testing could lower the risk of pilot injury or death from 22 to zero, TAA said in its report dated May 1.

Strongest attacks on Syrian Army come from where opposition & US forces stationed – Russian MoD

The Syrian Army liberating the Deir ez-Zor region from terrorists is facing strong resistance and massive fire from areas where armed opposition groups and US forces are stationed, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
The Syrian Army continues to liberate the Euphrates valley to the east of Deir ez-Zor with the help of the Russian Air Force, the statement from the ministry says, adding that the government forces have already retaken more than 60 square kilometers on the left bank of the Euphrates from Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL).

The Syrian Army, however, faces resistance not only from jihadists, but also apparently from US-backed armed opposition groups, according to the statement

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless the US and jihadist forces fall back, this could get ugly in a heartbeat.

Does anyone but myself out there see a geopolitical arc of insanity, courtesy of the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of America, from the Middle East to Asia?!?

Although I have never seen it in my life time, it feels as though the OUSSA is really gearing up for a true world war, to protect the hegemony of the petrodollar.

And what scares the stuffing out of me is, those Deep Staters in the Bowels of Power do not understand that this time, it may well not work at all.

Russian Collusion: Hillary Clinton Invited Vladimir Putin To “Pay For Play” Event -Mac Slavo

In newly released emails which the mainstream media is willfully ignoring, Hillary Clinton invited Russian president Vladimir Putin to a Clinton Foundation event. The Russian collusion between Hillary Clinton is becoming very apparent.

Hillary Clinton likes to talk a tough game about Russian President Vladimir Putin. And she likes to put him on the list of those at fault for her loss in the election last November to Donald Trump. But that didn’t stop her from inviting him and other top Russian officials to a Clinton Foundation gala right after she became Secretary of State.

Clinton Foundation director of foreign policy Amitabh Desai sent dozens of invitations to world leaders including then-Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, and Former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev, emails recently obtained by Judicial Watch revealed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are the facts, regarding Hillary and Russia, the corporate presstitutes will never let you see.

Putin Orders End To US Dollar Trade At Russian Seaports

Whether in response to rising scorching tensions with the US, or simply to provide support for the ruble, on Tuesday Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government to approve legislation making the ruble the main currency of exchange at all Russian seaports by next year, RT reported citing the Kremlin website.

The head of Russian antitrust watchdog FAS Igor Artemyev, many services in Russian seaports are still priced in US dollars, even though such ports are state-owned. So, in order to "protect the interests" of dockworkers and their complyees with foreign currency obligations, the government was instructed to set a transition period before switching to ruble settlements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I sincerely dislike the ways in which currency wars have a nasty tendency to morph into shooting wars.

Dangerous Words of Escalation: Trump Threatens to Abandon Iran’s Nuclear Deal as Israeli Officials Call for Action Against Iran

Once again, the annual United Nations General Assembly is taking place in New York City with U.S. President Donald Trump set to take center stage as he is expected to focus on the North Korean Crisis and the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

As the Western media’s attention has been focused on the North Korea crisis (which is also another very serious matter), another development has been taking place in Tel Aviv, as calls for action by Israeli officials against Iran’s Nuclear Program although it’s not a new development (it’s been going on for many years). Channel 2 on Israeli TV reported that Mossad chief Yossi Cohen is calling on the Israeli government to take action against the Iranian government. The Times of Israel reported that

“Channel 2 on Sunday paraphrased Cohen as asserting that “Today’s Iran is the North Korea of yesterday, and so we need to act now so that we don’t wake up to [an Iranian] bomb.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out that Israel was not a signatory to the P5+1, therefore has utterly no business in attempting to get the US from walking away from this treaty.

I would also like to politely point out that Iran has signed the NNPT: Israel has not.

I would also like to politely point out that Iran hasn't started a war in over 200 years.

IF President Trump has any horse-sense left, he will not allow Netanyahu to "charm" him into another Middle Eastern war, where the outcomes of US military intervention have not quite been stellar; think Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, and Syria, and you will catch my drift.

IF both Israel and Saudi Arabia believe that a war against Iran is in their best interests, as both consider Iran their "existential enemy", let them fight it; such a war is definitely NOT in the interests of We the People, and I do hope President Trump understands this.

US Is Sending Another Aircraft Carrier To Korea: Yonhap

After carrying out bombing drills over the Korean peninsula on Monday following North Korea’s firing of an intermediate-range missile over the Japanese island of Hokkaido, US and South Korean forces are planning to continue their displays of military might early next month, according to a report from Yonhap, the South Korean news agency. However, in a move that is sure to provoke a barrage of threats from North Korea, the US is reportedly sending a nuclear-armed aircraft carrier to the waters off the Korean peninsula, where it will take part in an upcoming round of military drills.

Earlier this year, the US sent three aircraft carriers to waters near North Korea in an unprecedented show of force. However, it's unclear if any of those carriers are still positioned so closely to the peninsula. Here's the latest map of US naval strike groups, which was compiled by Stratfor using publicly-available information. Deployments considered "sensitive" would not be included on this map.

War With North Korea Starts to Look Inevitable

We have pretty much exhausted all the things that we could do at the Security Council at this point,” said Nikki Haley on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, referring to North Korea. “We wanted to be responsible and go through all diplomatic means to get their attention first,” the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said. “If that doesn’t work, General Mattis [Defense Secretary James Mattis] will take care of it.”
The comments, no off-the-cuff remarks, mirrored her words at a White House press briefing Friday, and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, standing next to Haley at that briefing, was even more explicit. “I think we ought to make clear what’s different about this approach is, is that we’re out of time,” he noted, referring to sanctions. “As Ambassador Haley said before, we’ve been kicking the can down the road, and we’re out of road.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I was amazingly, horrifically stunned by President Trump's address at the UN today.

He has come as near to publicly declaring war against North Korea as one can without actually declaring war against it.

Kim Jung Un saw what happened when Iraq and Libya denuclearized; there was regime change, coupled with grisly assassinations of their heads of state; he knows, because of what the US has done before (sometimes backed by the UN and/or NATO) that if he denuclearizes before sitting down for negotiations, the precise, same fate awaits him.

And if the US fires first, China has publicly stated that they will stand with North Korea, militarily. This means we are most probably likely to see a false flag blamed on North Korea, as the "justification" for a war against it.

Mike and I live on a first strike target here on Oahu, which the Chinese military can actually accurately hit, which makes us more than a little nervous.

The only thing I can tell our readers right now is, please make sure your prep plans are fulfilled; make sure that you have food, potable water, and medications on hand for you, your family, and your pets. Make sure you have a plan to regroup, if you are separated. Have a bug-out kit close to hand.

And if you are of a mind to do so, please pray, that somehow, the catastrophe such a war will bring to the world can be averted.

Syrian army sends more troops across Euphrates, near U.S.-backed forces

Syrian troops crossed to the eastern side of the Euphrates in Deir al-Zor on Monday, state media and a monitoring group said, increasing their presence in an area where U.S.-backed militias have also advanced.

The rival forces are conducting offensives against Islamic State and have generally stayed out of each other’s way, with the river often acting as a dividing line.

However, incidents this year have raised tension between the government side, backed by Russia, and the U.S.-backed forces.

Unless there are some high level back channel negotiations between US and Russian diplomats, this could get very ugly very quickly

Netanyahu Is Meeting Trump To Push For War With Iran

Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with Donald Trump at the White House and push the U.S. to withdraw from the nuclear accord with Iran. Netanyahu will present an argument that Trump already has come to accept: America’s adherence to the nuclear deal cannot solely depend on Iran’s compliance with the agreement, but also whether Iran’s other policies challenge US national interests. It’s a more honest argument compared to the slogans Netanyahu has used in the past. But it is also a line that fundamentally contradicts Netanyahu’s central message of the past decades: That Iran’s nuclear program constitutes an existential threat to Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please on this issue; should you go back on this P5+1 agreement, you will telegraph to the world that the US is incapable of keeping its treaties and promises, and will walk away from them whenever said treaties are "inconvenient" to US hegemony.

And just which of Iran's policies in the region are an anathema to US national security interests?!?

Can you possibly, please, explain what you mean by this, because if you are taking the American people to war against Iran, the American people have the absolute right to understand why.

OK, Iran is developing better ballistic missiles: but these were never a part of the P5+1 agreement in the first place; and with Israel and the US breathing down Iran's neck, threatening war at least every other Tuedsay, can you blame them for wanting some decent defense capabilities?

No thinking, reasonable person possibly could.

Listen, we know your BFFs in the Middle East are cheerleading you on starting a war against Iran. Both Prince Salman and Prime Minister Netanyahu have been uofficial "president whisperers" in this regard.

But this could turn out to be an absolute nightmare for the OSUSSA (the curent state of this nation, which can most honestly be described as the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika.) And here is why.

Russian political and military figures have stated, publicly, that should Iran be attacked, they will come to its aid militarily.

Have McMaster, Kelly, and Mattis told you this?!? Because, Mr. President, it is bloody well time someone did.

Mr. President, we don't have the money, the troop stregth, the manufacturing, or the weaponry to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia in Iran; it is just that simple.

And what, precisely, will Prince Salman and Netanyahu give you to win this war?!? How many troops, and how much military equipment have they committed?!? My deep concern here, Mr. President, is that they will expect the US military to do most of the heavy lifting, but will expect the costs in blood and money, to be borne primarily by this country.

To all the Alphabet Soup agencies reading this site: I care about my country very deeply; and until it becomes illegal to do so, I will comment on the ways in which I believe it is moving in the wrong direction.

As you understand, I am a Christian pacifist activist, who never advocates, or condones violence, which means that I am constantly exorting this government to resolve its geopolitical differences with other countries in ways other than through wars.

A war with Iran may be believed to be in the best interests of both the Saudi Arabian and Israeli leadership; but with all the domestic and financial problems facing this country, a war against Iran, which may well translate into a war with Russia, is absoflippinglutely NOT in the interests of this country's people at all.

To the Iranian bloggers who read this site (I don't know if there is a mirror in Farsi, but understand there may be): thinking Americans who understand your history, and particularly your 20th century history), do not want to see war against Iran. Unlike Israel, you have a Constitution; are a signatory to the NNPT (which Israel is not); and your religious minorities are protected under your Constitution.

In sum total, Mr. President, a war with Iran is an horrifically bad idea, no matter how much Prince Salman and Prime Minister Netanyahu have been rooting for the OUSSA to do this.

Dead again: Sandy Hook child victim Noah Pozner also killed in Pakistan Taliban shooting!

Note from Eowyn (March 20, 2015): I removed the photo collage of Noah because his father, Lenny Pozner, claims copy right protection of all images of Noah and succeeded in getting WordPress, this blog’s server, take down those pictures, without even notifying me first. WordPress also threatens to shut down Fellowship of the Minds if we violate Lenny’s copy right again, despite FOTM‘s Fair Use disclaimer as a not-for-profit site.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a follow-up to yesterday's radio show caller who mentioned the same person being shown as a victim of Sandy Hook, then later as a victim of the Taliban. I mistakenly assumed there were two different photos that looked like the same person, but in fact it is the exact same photo used twice. The fact that Posner demanded the photos be taken down suggests there is some problem over and above the BBC's usual sloppy work.

America's dirtiest, biggest student lender neutralized by federal watchdog

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, founded by Elizabeth Warren prior to her career as a senator, has entered into an unprecedented settlement with National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts, the largest holder of student debt in the country.
***
The Trusts are accused of widescale financial fraud, collecting on debts that they didn't own, or that had expired, using "deceptive or unfair means" and flooding the country's courts with bogus lawsuits.

The Trusts originally held more than $12B in debt, but $5B has already been lost to default. Trust bondholders will not receive any payments while the audit is underway. People whose debts are found to be invalid will not owe anything, and will not face tax penalties for "debt forgiveness." All wage garnishment and bank balance seizures will be suspended during the audit as well.

The settlement still awaits judicial approval.>>>

BEX? Is North Korea Building Their First Nuclear Submarine?

Japanese newspaper Sekai Nippo claims that the "informed" source "familiar with the North Korea situation" told them that the DPRK has been clandestinely building the nuclear submarine, which would be a massive leap forward from the current DPRK Navy, which may maintain a fleet of 50 to 60 diesel-electric submarines.

The source went on to claim that Chinese and Russian engineers have been lending their expertise to the DPRK at North Korea's Nampo Naval Shipyard, in North Korea's manufacturing capital.

ISRAEL AND US OPEN FIRST AMERICAN MILITARY BASE IN ISRAEL

Israel and the U.S. inaugurated the first American military base on Israeli soil on Monday, which will serve dozens of soldiers operating a missile defense system.

The move comes at a time of growing Israeli concerns about archenemy Iran's development of long-range missiles. Together with the U.S., Israel has developed a multilayered system of defenses against everything from long-range guided missile attacks from Iran to crude rockets fired from Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

The base's opening is largely symbolic and isn't expected to bring operational changes. But the Israeli military says that along with other measures, it sends a message of readiness to Israel's enemies.

"It's a message that says Israel is better prepared. It's a message that says Israel is improving the response to threats," said Brig. Gen. Zvika Haimovich, the commander of Israel's aerial defense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although this didn't make it to the presstitute corporate news outlets in this country, this base makes a joint Israeli/US strike against Iran far more potentially feasible, and nearer in schedule than it might have been before.

Google and Sex Traffickers Like Backpage.com

Sex traffickers in America have the police and prosecutors pursuing them, but they do have one crucial (if secret) ally: Google.

Google’s motto has long been “Don’t be evil,” and I admire lots about the company. But organizations it funds have for years been quietly helping Backpage.com, the odious website where most American victims of human trafficking are sold, to battle lawsuits from children sold there for sex.

Now Google is using its enormous lobbying power in Washington to try to kill bipartisan legislation that would crack down on websites that promote sex trafficking.

It’s not that Google is taking ads from Backpage (it doesn’t) or giving it money. But as Backpage fights off prosecutors and worries about the legislation, the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act, Google has emerged as its behind-the-scenes champion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, Google; now is the time to walk your talk, and don't be evil; support this bill!!

US-Kiev rejection of Russian initiative proves more war in store for Donbass —

Ukraine’s and the United States’ refusal to work on the text of Russia’s draft resolution on deploying a UN contingent in Donbass to ensure security of the OSCE mission reveals their real plans to realize a kind of the Croatian scenario, Denis Pushilin, the chief negotiator for the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic at the pace talks in Minsk, said on Monday.

"Ukraine’s and the United States’ refusal to work on the text of the Russia-initiated draft resolution on a UN mission in Donbass reveals the real motives of the Western partners. Such actions openly show what [Ukrainian President] Pyotr Poroshenko and his American friends really want," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this moment in its history, the government of the Occupied, Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika, appears to be pathologically incabable of resolving its geopolitical differences in any way other than war.

The country I thought I knew, as a kid growing up, seemed to be much more intellectually, and morally capable of getting its way through hard-won, intelligent negotiations; but perhaps I was just fooling myself in that assessment, even back then.

“The three victor nations, Russia, America and Britain, collaborated together at Nuremberg to fabricate the horrorillusion, which would enable the US/UK to gain the post-war moral high ground, even after incinerating the German cities with two million tons of bombs. People were loath to believe that such a thing could have happened – until maybe after Iraq, when we saw how British-American intelligence had fabricated the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) lie without a tremor of conscience. Only then, I suggest, does it start to dawn upon the world that the notion of big human gas chambers was the original WMD hoax.”

Rosneft to reach gas pipeline deal with Iraqi Kurdistan

Agreement on setting up the natural gas pipeline infrastructure for Iraqi Kurdistan may be sealed between Rosneft and the region’s government by the end of the year, according to the company.

Investment in the project will be made under the BOOT (Build-Own-Operate-Transfer) arrangement and will be recovered through tariff charges.

The capacity of the pipeline is expected at up to 30 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

"The Kurdistan Region gas pipeline will not only supply natural gas to power plants and domestic factories throughout the region but also enable exporting substantial volumes of fuel to Turkey and the European market in the coming years," said the report.

Commissioning of the pipeline and the first domestic supplies are planned for 2019. Exports will begin starting 2020.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Russia also benefits economically from the establishment of an indepentent Kurdistan.

ENTIRE VOLUME OF CIA FILES ON LEE HARVEY OSWALD, SET TO BE RELEASED IN OCTOBER, HAS ‘GONE MISSING’

Countless concerned individuals are still searching for answers surrounding the mysterious death of the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy. The official narrative, that a lone former Marine named Harvey Oswald assassinated him, is widely disputed.

All available documents from all government entities are required by the Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 to be released on October 26th of 2017. But if history repeats itself, the Central Intelligence Agency may not release an entire volume of documents on Oswald, known as “volume 5.”

IN FLORIDA, YOU CAN’T USE YOUR OWN SOLAR PANELS IN A CRISIS

When it comes to the U.S. economy, the “con” part offers the best description of the current relationship between business, government and the preyed upon consumer. The way things work in early 21st century America is large businesses bribe politicians in a variety of ways at both the local and federal level, and the end result is laws that are designed to increase corporate profits at the expense of the wellbeing and freedom of the American public. Politicians end up with financial war chests to run their next campaign, while bureaucrats see a lucrative opportunity to swing through the ever spinning revolving door should they play ball with lobbyists and their patrons. Yes, there’s always some degree of corruption within any society of humans, but there are peaks and valleys in such cycles. I’d argue we are somewhere in the peak corruption phase.

Why Is Google Hiring 1,000 Journalists To Flood Newsrooms Around America?

So what do you do when you fail to elect your chosen candidate and your former political allies and mainstream media turn against you by painting you not as the 'progressive', open-minded, friendly tech company that you used to be but as an evil, racist, Russian-colluding corporate villain intent upon destroying all that is sacred in the world? Well, you just buy the media, of course.

As Poynter notes today, after a series of public relations debacles in recent weeks, from the firing of James Damore to news last week that Google's algos served up some fairly disturbing keywords to potential advertising buyers (e.g. "Why Do Black People Ruin Neighborhoods"), Google is ramping up its media presence with the announcement that the Google News Lab will be working with Report For America (RFA) to hire 1,000 journalists all around the country.

Never Forget: The US Government Has A Known History Of Using False Flags

This tradition of using lies to rally the unwashed masses behind military endeavors on behalf of the rich and powerful has probably been going on since the dawn of civilization, and it is only humanity’s increasing adeptness at networking and sharing information which has enabled us to begin catching on to the deceitful manipulations of the people who rule us. Our history books are doubtless riddled with countless inaccuracies as to the real reasons underlying violent conflicts between various kingdoms and factions, because the few literate people who were permitted to write the official historic accounts of them had full control of the narrative at the time.

Five Lessons from 9/11

Lesson number 1: Never trust the government. Ever. And especially when it has anything to do with terrorism, foreign policy, war, or the military. The government is a giant lie-making machine.

DEFENSE CONTRACTORS ON CLOUD 9

The Senate is expected to pass by a wide margin a $700-billion defense bill today. When it comes to extravagant military spending, Congress is relentlessly bipartisan, and all bickering stops, as long as the bacon gets spread to every district and state.

“The 1,215-page measure defies a number of White House objections, but Trump hasn’t threatened to veto the measure,” the Washington Post mused. “The bill helps him honor a pledge to boost military spending by tens of billions of dollars.”

So who gets this money?

It’s going to get spread around, but defense contractors are going to get a chunk of it, and they’ve been on cloud 9 all year. Their shares – fired up by plenty of saber-rattling – have mostly soared from all-time high to all-time high.

These are some of the biggest defense contractors and their shares year-to-date as of this morning:

Rockwell Collins (COL), to be acquired by United Technologies: $130.90, up 40.6% YTD

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An absolutely staggering amount of your tax dollars get devoted to killing, and the technological refinement of killing, world wide; that is what this defense budget is about.

And these are some of the examples of what these weapons do: (warning: graphic images).

Over 160 children reported among US drone deaths

Images: Afghani funeral, US drone strike

US drone strike kills Afghani children

Images: US/Saudi bombing slaughters Yemeni children; massive malnutrition in Yemeni children; cholera sweeping Yemen

And this bugdget has been approved b "our" Senate while:

Fires blaze out of control in the Western US, while floods and storms ravage the South and West because the American infrastructure has been allowed to rot; homeless Vets sleep rough in our streets; homelessness and disease ravage this country; our alleged education system is simply a system of inidoctrination only; and jobs continue to be offshored and outsourced, destroying what was left of the middle class.

So do not believe, for one moment, that your "alleged Congressional Representatives" really represent you; at this point in this country's history, they represent only the interests of those corporations like those corporations named above, and this budget is to keep them financially flush, and well fed, just as they keep overt and covert campaign contributions "flowing" to the members of Congress who approve budgets like this.

FREEDOM IS A MYTH: WE ARE ALL PRISONERS OF THE POLICE STATE’S PANOPTICON VILLAGE

First broadcast in Great Britain 50 years ago, The Prisoner—a dystopian television series described as “James Bond meets George Orwell filtered through Franz Kafka”—confronted societal themes that are still relevant today: the rise of a police state, the freedom of the individual, round-the-clock surveillance, the corruption of government, totalitarianism, weaponization, group think, mass marketing, and the tendency of humankind to meekly accept their lot in life as a prisoner in a prison of their own making.

Perhaps the best visual debate ever on individuality and freedom, The Prisoner (17 episodes in all) centers around a British secret agent who abruptly resigns only to find himself imprisoned, monitored by militarized drones, and interrogated in a mysterious, self-contained, cosmopolitan, seemingly tranquil retirement community known only as the Village. The Village is an idyllic setting with parks and green fields, recreational activities and even a butler.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This scenario has a familiar ring to it, doesn't it?!?

Because post 9/11, any attempt - even the most peaceful - to relay the truth about what is happening with our country, our world, and the potential future of freedom is repressed, digitized, surveilled, and severely culled by those in the Bowels of Power in the Occupied, Unhinged Surveilled States of of Amerika.

Yes, I am a Christian pacifist activist who consistently exhorts her country's government to achieve its geopolitical objectives through hard-won, honest, moral negotiations, rather than through war.

For that, I get thoroughly criticised, ignored and shunned.

And yet, I have to believe that there will be a point in this country's future, when war has proven a desolate, bitter, and horrific disappointment, as a means to an end, when my gentle, reasonable voice may yet still be heard.

And that is why I keep posting, because I do care about the future of this country and the that of the world.

We have some wonderful extended family, with three grand nephews and one grand niece, so I have to keep thinking; what kind of a world will my, and our, choices leave them?!?

Will it be a place of plenty; of health; enjoying the benefits of science and technology, and will it be a place where one has the freedom to speak one's mind, where love abounds??

Or will the world we leave them a completely dystopian replica of "1984", with "thought Police", reading those "double ungood thoughts", and proscribing drugs, torture, or something even worse, to get rid of them?!?

Never Forget: The US Government Has A Known History Of Using False Flags

When it comes to 9/11, there are two groups of people: those who don’t know exactly what happened, and those who orchestrated it.

Nearly everyone on earth belongs in the former category, but a lot of folks like to pretend they have a rock solid understanding of the events which transpired on that fateful day in 2001. Scoffing mainstream adherents like to pretend they’re confident that the official narrative is accurate, but they aren’t. A lot of hardcore conspiracy analysts like to pretend they know the real story, but they don’t. There’s simply not enough publicly available information for anyone to be certain exactly how things went down that day; all we can know for sure is that (A) the official story is riddled with plot holes, and (B) the American power establishment has an extensive and well-documented history of using false flags and propaganda to manipulate the public into supporting evil acts of military interventionism.

First they came for the Nazis and pedophiles…

I have to begin this analysis by asking for your understanding for the fact that it will include a lot of full-length quotes. Under normal circumstances, I would have simply provided links, but considering the topic I will be discussing, and how some things suddenly “disappear” on the Internet, full-length quotes is probably the best option. The topic I want to deal with is the brutal crackdown on free speech by the AngloZionist Empire by means of its ‘loyal corporations’.

Mo Mana, Mo Problems: Mueller Reportedly Plans To Indict Manafort

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team reportedly advised former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort that they plan to indict him after a July raid of his home in Alexandria, Va.

The New York Times reports that prosecutors and investigators under Mueller’s command warned Manafort that they plan to bring an indictment against him to a grand jury. The report is sourced to two individuals close to the investigation. Though The Times is not specific as to the nature of the charges, Manafort is under investigation for possible violations of tax laws and failure to abide by disclosure requirements relating to his lobbying work for Kremlin-aligned governments in eastern Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see to what level Manafort will be the "Sacrificial Lamb" in these investigations.

And yet... no forensic accounting investigations into Clinton Foundation; I would suspect that this will never happen.

TOYS "R" US FILES CHAPTER 11: SECOND LARGEST US RETAIL BANKRUPTCY IN HISTORY

Toys “R” Us Inc., the largest US "brick and mortar" toys retailer, filed for bankruptcy late on Monday night, as a result of a crushing post-LBO debt load and relentless competition from warehouse and online retailers, the "latest blow to a retail industry reeling from store closures, sluggish mall traffic and the gravitational pull of Amazon.com" according to Bloomberg. The Chapter 11 filing is among the largest ever by a specialty retailer and casts doubt over the future of its about 1,600 stores and 64,000 employees. It comes just as Toys ‘R’ Us is gearing up for the holiday shopping season, which accounts for the bulk of its sales, and as vendors halt shipments to the now insolvent retailer.

With assets of $6.9 billion, it’s the second-largest retail bankruptcy, trailing the filing in 2002 by Kmart, which had $14.6 billion in assets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have kids for whom you shop for Christmas or Chanukah toys, now may be the time to do this here in light of the fact that vendors are no longer shipping to this company, so inventory is at its peak point.

The Democrats Wanted Trump

***
The major media outlets, the Clinton campaign, and the liberal punditry all got what they wanted: Trump.

(*It sounds like The NATIONAL REVIEW arm of #NEVERTRUMP is readying to dish the Trump Presidency off on The Democrats)

Texas carpet bombs its own hurricane-traumatized victims with neurological poisons sprayed from military planes

The war on humanity continues unabated in Texas, where over one million acres of land are being carpet-bombed with the aerial spraying of neurotoxic chemicals in an effort to kill mosquitoes. Texas authorities are openly lying to citizens, claiming these poisons are magically not poisons at all when they come into contact with humans. Even more alarmingly, Texas authorities are urging their citizens to use other toxic chemicals on their skin — chemicals that are part of a binary weapon system that causes Alzheimer’s and dementia by incurring permanent brain damage (see the science, below).

Gregg Jarrett: Sessions should resign, but not before taking action against Clinton, Comey and Rice

Jeff Sessions should never have accepted the position of Attorney General of the United States. His leadership has proven unproductive and ineffectual.

There are two reasons for this.

First, he deceived President Trump by concealing his intent to recuse himself from the federal investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. Hours after he was sworn in, Sessions began setting his recusal in motion by meeting with Department of Justice officials to discuss stepping aside from the probe. Failing to disclose such a material matter to the president was an egregious betrayal.
