Liberal Globalist Establishment Has No Alternatives to 'Russia Did It' Narrative

For seemingly the umpteenth time, the latest issue of Time magazine features an image of Russian President Vladimir Putin, with the cover story yet again devoted to the Kremlin's dastardly plot to 'hack the US election'. RIA Novosti contributor Igor Pshenichnikov says America's corporate media appears to have become the victims of its own agitprop.

BEX ALERT - Russia to blame for 'hot war' in Ukraine - U.S. special envoy

Russian aggression is to blame for violence in eastern Ukraine, where people are dying in what should be seen as a "hot war" rather than a "frozen conflict", the U.S. special envoy to the Ukraine peace talks said on a visit to Ukraine on Sunday.

Kurt Volker, a former U.S. ambassador to NATO, was appointed to his current role on July 7 to help resolve the conflict between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian separatists, which has killed more than 10,000 people since 2014.

Washington cites the conflict as a key obstacle to better relations with Russia.

The Reign of Propaganda

If truth has a chance it is in a different country than America.

Masters of propaganda from its inventor, Jewish public relations expert Edward Louis James Bernays, to the Nazi Minister of Propaganda Paul Joseph Goebbels, agree that a lie can be turned into truth by constant repetition.

The more pure the lie, the more complete the success in turning it into The Truth. Lies partly based in fact or half-truths open themselves to factual challenge. For a propagandist the best lie is a lie unfettered by even a distant relationship to truth. Such a lie can be turned into such self-evident truth that no evidence is necessary. As Nikki Haley and Hillary Clinton put it: “Evidence! We don’t need any stinking evidence. We know Russia hacked our election!”

CNN Readies Russophobic Show To Scare Suburbia

Much of the American public no longer cares about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. They also don’t care about the Senate investigation, or the House investigation.

So it’s unsurprising that CNN, in a seemingly blatant example of suburban scaremongering, will attempt to revive the anti-Russia hysteria that permeated the political climate just a few months ago, by preparing to debut “The Spies Next Door: Operation Ghost Stories." The documentary focuses on the story of undercover Russian sleeper living in the US. The show details “one of the largest counterintelligence investigations in the history of the FBI," reads a release from the network via the Hill.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CNN, a word, please: you are dealing with a VERY war-weary, war-skeptical pubic at this point. And having lost any shred of credibility for continually having regurgitated the White House lie that "Saddam Hussain had weapons of mass destruction", on which to "sell" the American people on a war against Iraq, I am rather surprised that you would continue to pour more kerosene upon the corpse of the tatters of your integrity.

A war against Russia would be financially and militarily insane right now; the US military just doesn't have the troop strength, the weaponry, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive US outcome to a war against Russia.

Unfortunately, that being said, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could do, is utterly no guarantee that it just won't haul off and do it.

We've got NATO and American troops surrounding Russia, and a new US military base in the Republic of Georgia, right on Russia's border, and that facility will be ready for use, and occupancy, right around the end of this year.

Therefore, my guess for the timing of a "false flag", to be blamed on Russia as the "justification" for military action against it, will be toward the end of this year, or beginning of next.

But in response to your coming demonisation of Russia, as a potential prelude to a shooting war with this country, a composer I know very well once wrote:

"You're selling us war... but we're just not buying
You've got your talking heads all cued, but we know they're lying
Just how many more ... will you condemn to dying?!?
You can't justify this war, so just stop trying!"

Oh, and I will be recording the first episode of the show... to know which commercial sponsors against whom I will need to organise a national boycott!! :-)

Israel’s Dirty Little Secret

At a recent panel discussion in Washington, screenwriter, film director and producer Oliver Stone briefly addressed the issue of alleged Russian interference in the recent national election, observing that “Israel interfered in the U.S. election far more than Russia and nobody is investigating them.” A few days later, in an interview with Stephen Colbert on the Late Show, Stone returned to the theme, responding to an aggressive claim that Russia had interfered in the election by challenging Colbert with “Israel had far more involvement in the U.S. election than Russia. Why don’t you ask me about that?”

Don’t look for the exchange with Colbert on YouTube. CBS deleted it from its broadcast and website, demonstrating once again that the “I” word cannot be disparaged on national television.

REPORT: Armies of Cyber-Troops Manipulating Public Opinion

The Computational Propaganda Research Project (COMPROP) investigates the interaction of algorithms, automation and politics. This work includes analysis of how tools like social media bots are used to manipulate public opinion by amplifying or repressing political content, disinformation, hate speech, junk or fake news.

In their most recent report COMPROP have identified how organisations, often with public money, have created a system to help ‘define and manage what is in the best interest of the public.’

Newsweek Takes Down Fabricated Sputnik-Trump Collusion Stories After Settlement

Former print magazine and current online publication Newsweek took down a pair of falsified articles by infamous writer Kurt Eichenwald following a legal settlement reached with a former Sputnik journalist Eichenwald smeared.
Newsweek deleted the stories smearing William Moran and claiming that Sputnik News colluded with the Trump campaign.

Eichenwald, a senior writer for Newsweek, has been repeatedly caught lying, falsifying sources and making up stories, but because he remained dedicated to the mainstream media narrative, his transgressions never hurt his career, but rather have propelled it. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Eichenwald found a new bandwagon and decided to become the smearer-in-chief of then-candidate Donald Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Don't worry; Eichenwald will lie, obfuscate, and smear again, when those who have the money to spend hire him.

Unfortunately for him, however, it won't be the Democratic Party this time, because they are stone cold broke!!! :-)

ASSANGE: ‘CIA NOT ONLY ARMED SYRIA’S INSURGENTS–IT PAID THEIR SALARIES’

Wikileaks’ Julian Assange is continuing his attempt to “take down America any way he can” by accurately reporting the truth.

Saturday on Twitter, Assange highlighted an article from Thursday where the Financial Times noted how many Syrian rebels are getting salaries from the CIA.

Assange said they “buried the lede”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I absolutely not surprised at this?~?

And CIA Director Pompeo, a word, please: you have simply found yourself tripping over your own lies, both to the American people and the world, regarding the US's true mission in Syria.

Originally, the American military presence in Syria was allegedly to "fight ISIS"; but what was really going on, as clearly demonstrated by the Financial Times article, which you hate, because the truth is gradually coming out, was to finance, train, and help the rebels destabilise Syria to the point where regime change in Syria was in the sites of DC.

In light of Russia's support for the Al Assad Administration, (and I would like to politely remind you, Mr. Pompeo, that the Russians are in Syria at the behest of the Syrian government, which we never were), that was just not going to happen.

The American people are now war-weary, and war-skeptical. They understand that the lies emanating from DC, and regurgitated by the presstitutes in Corporate Media, are simply put forward to sell various geopolitical agendas, and can no longer be believed.

Julian Assange has never lied to me; the US government, on innumerable occasions, has, sir: so, who do you think I am going to trust, henceforward?!?

ASSANGE: ‘CIA NOT ONLY ARMED SYRIA’S INSURGENTS–IT PAID THEIR SALARIES’

Wikileaks’ Julian Assange is continuing his attempt to “take down America any way he can” by accurately reporting the truth.

Saturday on Twitter, Assange highlighted an article from Thursday where the Financial Times noted how many Syrian rebels are getting salaries from the CIA.

Assange said they “buried the lead”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised at this?!?

And a short word to CIA Director Pompeo: you get angry when you get embarrassed by someone like Assange succeeds in uncovering the evils this government sometimes perpetrates in order to effect "regime change", as you have been doing for over half a decade in Syria.

The American people cannot possibly believe or stomach your lies anymore, particularly after the "Saddam had weapons of mass destruction" lie to "sell" American into a war with Iraq; they have become war-skeptical, and war weary.

When faced with choosing between what the US government tells me, and what Julian Assange tells me and the world, I will, thank you, stick with Assange; he hasn't lied to me yet, whereas the only thing I expect from my government these days, is continual lying to support its geopolitical agendas.

Top general says Russians could force US out of Syria, as Congress strikes deal to slap them with new sanctions

US forces have a less credible military foothold in Syria than the Russians do, and could be expelled from the country after the defeat of ISIS, a top US general has said.

Russia, unlike the US, operates in Syria at the invitation of the Syrian government, said General Raymond 'Tony' Thomas, the head of the Special Operations Command, at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado on Friday.
'Here's the conundrum: We are operating in the sovereign country of Syria. The Russians, their stalwarts, their backstoppers have already uninvited the Turks from Syria. We're a bad day away from the Russians saying, "Why are you still in Syria, US?" Thomas said, according to Newsweek.

'If the Russians play that card, we could want to stay and have no ability to do it,' Thomas continued.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since President Trump has ordered the CIA to stand down in their funding, training, and supporting ISIS, there is utterly no credible claim by the US government for a reason for the US military to be in Syria, period, end of discussion.

We have invaded a sovereign country with the original expectation of being able to regime change Damascus; that is not possible, and perhaps, it never was. But the reality on the ground is very clear here; time to go.

Israel seeking to consolidate control over al-Aqsa: Analyst

On Friday, the Palestinian people marked “Day of Rage” to protest Tel Aviv’s restrictions on entry into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which was met with a heavy-handed Israeli crackdown. At least four people lost their lives during the clashes with Tel Aviv’s forces in the occupied territories. Press TV has conducted an interview with Salma Karmi-Ayyoub, a Palestinian human rights lawyer from London, and Michael Lane, president of the American Institute for Foreign Policy from Washington, to ask for their thoughts on the heightened tensions between Israelis and Palestinians.

Karmi-Ayyoub said that the imposition of restrictive measures on the Palestinian access to the al-Aqsa Mosque is in line with the Tel Aviv regime’s broader agenda of occupying the whole Palestinian territories and expelling the Arabs from their homeland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From the Smithsonian on-line magazine comes a very helpful explanation of why this sacred site is such a bone of contention for the 3 Abrahamic faiths:

"Jewish tradition holds that it is the site where God gathered the dust to create Adam and where Abraham nearly sacrificed his son Isaac to prove his faith. King Solomon, according to the Bible, built the First Temple of the Jews on this mountaintop circa 1000 B.C., only to have it torn down 400 years later by troops commanded by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, who sent many Jews into exile. In the first century B.C., Herod expanded and refurbished a Second Temple built by Jews who had returned after their banishment. It is here that, according to the Gospel of John, Jesus Christ lashed out against the money changers (and was later crucified a few hundred yards away). The Roman general Titus exacted revenge against Jewish rebels, sacking and burning the Temple in A.D. 70.

Among Muslims, the Temple Mount is called Haram al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary). They believe it was here that the Prophet Muhammad ascended to the “Divine Presence” on the back of a winged horse—the Miraculous Night Journey, commemorated by one of Islam’s architectural triumphs, the Dome of the Rock shrine."

In Jewish spiritual traditions, the building of the 3rd Temple at this site will usher in the Messianic age, which is why control of the Al Aqsa Mosque is such a big issue for the Israeli government.

Unfortunately, due to Israeli Prime Minister's characteristic hubris, we have not seen the end of death an destruction against all sides; my heart weeps for the future of Jerusalem.

US dishes dirt on Saudis to flush Gulf blockade on Qatar

It’s been a bad week for the Saudi rulers in the US media. A slew of embarrassing stories got wide coverage, with the seeming intention of undermining Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies. Not coincidentally, the Saudi-led bloc then capitulated in its standoff with Qatar.

The row between Qatar and the other Gulf states of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain has been the worst flare up in relations among the US-backed oil and gas monarchies going back many years.

All of the energy-rich sheikhdoms are American allies, or more accurately, American intelligence came out to effectively back Qatar’s side in the row with the other Gulf states. The US assessed that the official Qatar News Agency website was hacked by “the government of United Arab Emirates” on May 24, which sparked the whole stand-off in the first place.

CIA Agent Confesses On Deathbed: ‘We Blew Up WTC7 On 9/11’

Over the 5 years or so The Last Great Stand has been around, I’m often asked why I never talk about how 9/11 was an inside job? For anyone who hasn’t heard my explanation, it’s simple:

I grew up just outside NYC, and I worked in the Towers every summer break while in undergrad. Every morning I used to ride the ferry from Hoboken, NJ across the Hudson River, and it would drop me off right at the foot of the World Trade Center.

No matter how cold it was, you could always find me on the upper deck of the ferry sitting outside. No matter how many times I saw the Twin Towers, I was still awestruck every single morning when I saw them... every single morning.

Ramses II was King Solomon

Very few equivalences in ancient times are so certain as the equivalence of Ramses II with King Solomon. Indeed, no mainstream scholar has been able to present even the most minimal requisite evidence necessary to rebut my challenge to current chronology as posted at https://listhost.uchicago.edu/pipermail/ane/2003-July/009941.html

Egyptologists, Oriental and Biblical scholars do not like to be confronted with facts - rather, they continue to build their nice little houses of cards as if facts contrary to their ill-conceived theories and chronologies simply did not exist. The closed-minded majority of Egyptologists seem to have a limited capacity for critical thinking.

Just how long did Ramses reign? They assume it is 67 years of sole regency, but the evidence is against them.

It is quite clear that Ramses did not rule alone for 67 years but like Solomon only ruled 40 years as a sole regent.

UK MILITARY WILL USE ARTIFICIALLY INTELLIGENT LASERS TO EXPAND BRITAIN’S ECONOMIC EMPIRE

The British press has been rather over-excited about the Tory government’s plans to fund a new fleet of destroyers.

So over-excited that pundits have overlooked the First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Philip Jones’, extraordinary assertion that Britain’s plan to expand its Navy is:

“… in order to support the UK’s growing global economic ambitions.”
Oh, and he also mentioned that under the same plan, the Navy would be deploying an advanced laser weapon, along with autonomous, artificially intelligent weapons systems.

To his credit, Admiral Sir Jones does mention the obligatory objective of ‘world peace’ and such like, but he is also quite candid about the pre-eminence of Britain’s economic interests.

Here are the relevant passages of his message in bold:

“Meanwhile in the Gulf [we] are working to protect international shipping in a region which is essential to the UK’s economic security…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, it's back to expropriating resources to which the UK has utterly no moral right; regime changing countries to become more British-Centric; and making certain that these resources are only sold in specific currencies to specific countries, right?!?

WOW, I love the smell of neocolonialism in the morning!!

BROKE AND BLEEDING CASH, DNC ENDS JUNE $3.3 MILLION IN DEBT

After spending a truly obscene amount of money on the Georgia special election last month, money that was proven to be completely wasted after Jon Ossoff was destroyed by Karen Handel, the DNC's balance sheet is looking a little deflated. Of course, spending $22 million dollars for a seat where candidates usually spend about $1 million each tends to take a toll on your political war chest.

And while we're sure that the new DNC Chair would love to forget all about that Georgia race, as the Federal Election Commission's June financial reports reveal, his deflated balance sheet, which included only $7.5 mm of cash and $3.3mm of debt, serves as a constant reminder of the wasted money that he'd undoubtedly love to get back.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless and until the DNC starts taking responsibility for some very bad judgment in terms of backing Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, and starts to acknowledge that she had more baggage attached to her than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot, things are just not going to get better for them.

And this "Russia interfered with the election" nonsense is not playing well in Peoria; better to drop it, identify the real problems the party faces, and fix them well before the mid-terms.

Of course, that... would be logical!!

PALESTINIANS AND ISRAELIS KILLED, HUNDREDS WOUNDED AS VIOLENCE ENGULFS WEST BANK

Three Palestinians were shot dead and four others wounded as thousands of Palestinian worshippers clashed with security forces on a “day of rage” over Israeli control of Islam’s third-holiest site. Israel’s army said a family of three Israeli settlers were stabbed to death and a fourth was wounded in the Israeli West Bank settlement of Neve Tsuf on Friday.

Mohammad Sharaf, 17, was reportedly shot by an Israeli settler in the Ras Alamood area in East Jerusalem. Mohammed Hassan Abu Ghannam, 19, died of wounds in al-Makassed hospital after he was shot by an Israeli settler in East Jerusalem. Footage on social media shows Ghannam’s body being carried over the hospital gate by Palestinian paramedics and protesters.

A third Palestinian was killed in Abu Dis, AFP reported, quoting Palestinian health officials saying: “A Palestinian was killed after he was shot in the heart by live bullets.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This place is sacred to all 3 Abrahamic faith traditions; Muslim; Jewish, and Christian. And Muslims' fears that Israel wants it for their own religious and national purposes are, unfortunately, well grounded.

Tel Aviv wants to wrest control of it back for Israel, because in Jewish religious traditions, the building of the 3rd Temple will herald the beginning of the Messianic age.

Israeli Prime Minister knew that the optics of the metal detectors and forbidding anyone under 50 to worship at Al Aqsa would be horrific; but in his characteristic hubris, he just didn't give a damn.

Through these actions, he may well have lit the flames for yet another intifada; then, he will use this violence as "the justification" to tighten down the screws against Palestinians even more than they are already.

I weep for all those dead and wounded, Jewish, Muslim, and Christian, and those who will die, and be wounded, on all sides; this is an absolute tragedy which could have been averted.

A violent response to these strictures for worshiping at Al Aqsa was precisely the outcome Netanyahu, and the Israeli government wanted to happen.

PALESTINIANS AND ISRAELIS KILLED, HUNDREDS WOUNDED AS VIOLENCE ENGULFS WEST BANK

Three Palestinians were shot dead and four others wounded as thousands of Palestinian worshipers clashed with security forces on a “day of rage” over Israeli control of Islam’s third-holiest site. Israel’s army said a family of three Israeli settlers were stabbed to death and a fourth was wounded in the Israeli West Bank settlement of Neve Tsuf on Friday.

The army said in a statement that the four victims were Israeli civilians and that the assailant was also shot. It was not known whether he was alive.

The deaths came as thousands of Palestinians clashed with police after peaceful prayers around the Old City. Many had refused to enter the Noble Sanctuary and the al-Aqsa mosque in protest of new Israeli security checkpoints at two key entrances.

The sanctuary has for a week been subjected to increased security measures, including metal detectors, that many in Palestine see as an attempt to gain control of the site.

MAN BEHIND TRUMP "DOSSIER" REFUSES TO TESTIFY, WILL PLEAD THE FIFTH, FIGHT SUBPOENA

For all the talk of obstruction and interference by the Trump camp, it's neither Donald Trump Jr. nor Paul Manafort who are challenging their scheduled testimony in the Senate next Wednesday, but rather the man who according to many started the whole "Trump Russia collusion" narrative, who is doing everything in his power to avoid testifying next week.

FUSION GPS head Glenn Simpson won't testify before Senate Judiciary next week, his rep attacks "partisan" hearing and vows to plead Fifth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the head of the Senate Judiciary Committee has at least two brain cells to rub together, they will immediately void Simpson's US passport, and hold this man in protective custody until he testifies, even if he pleads the 5th Amendment throughout the hearing.

My hunch would be, here that he and his attorney have a "short list" of countries with no extradition agreements with the United States, and it will be to one of those countries he will go, permanently, unless he is forbidden to travel outside the United States.

Due to the wars of aggression against Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen the US and its vassal states created sectarian violence that led to civil wars. Right now, the CIA and the Muslim Brotherhood are present in the form of ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Bahraini inmates seeking medical attention punished with torture, solitary confinement

A Bahraini human rights group says detainees being held at a detention center in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom will be punished by solitary confinement and torture in case they seek medical attention from prison authorities.

Duraz Youth Movement announced on Friday that inmates at Dry Dock Detention Center will be locked up in solitary cells and subjected to torture should they demand treatment, Arabic-language Lualua television network reported.

The movement noted that the practice has been drawn up by one of the prison’s senior figures identified as Ahmad al-Amadi.

It also expressed deep concerns over the deteriorating health conditions of Ali Majed Rabea and Hussein Mahdi Qassem, stressing that the pair faces serious health risks after continuously being denied proper medical care.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the Al-Khalifa monarchy is doing to these political prisoners is tantamount to committing war crimes; of course, neither the US nor the UK's government will ever confront the monarchy with this, because of the tactical importance of their naval bases on this island.

4 Palestinians killed during al-Aqsa Mosque rallies

At least four people have reportedly lost their lives during clashes in the occupied Palestinian lands as tensions (#SaveAlAqsa) remain high there in the wake of the Tel Aviv regime’s crackdown on Palestinian worshipers wishing to pray at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

Palestinian medical sources and witnesses, speaking on condition of anonymity, said a Palestinian teenager, identified as 17-year-old Muhammad Mahmoud Sharaf from the predominantly Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan on the outskirts of the Old City of Jerusalem al-Quds, was fatally shot in Ras al-Amud neighborhood of East Jerusalem al-Quds on Friday afternoon, Arabic-language Ma’an news agency reported.

Witnesses said Sharaf was shot in the neck by an Israeli settler, and later succumbed to his wounds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

None of these people should have died; but the IDF uses demonstrations as the reason to "justify" more crackdowns against Palestinians, even when Palestinians are demonstrating peacefully.

And Israeli settlers assassinate young Palestinians, because they know they can get away with such actions with impunity.

I am almost willing to bet that neither of these perps will ever be caught and tried for these murders, and they know it.

What sanctions? North Korea economy grows at fastest pace in 17 years

North Korea’s economy grew at its fastest pace in 17 years in 2016, South Korea’s central bank said on Friday, despite the isolated country facing international sanctions aimed at curbing its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Gross domestic product (GDP) in North Korea last year rose 3.9% from the previous year when the economy contracted due to a drought and low commodity prices, the Bank of Korea said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering all the economic blight these US sanctions were supposed to bring, it doesn't appear that they have hurt the North Korean economy one bit.

Government Think Tanks Admit U.S. Empire Is Collapsing – Their Solution Is More War And Tyranny

The average person doesn’t realize how close the American empire is to collapsing under its own weight. Hell, the average person’s mind is thoroughly riddled with propaganda and entertainment, that they don’t even realize that their country is an empire. They think it’s normal to live under an all powerful government that has hundreds of military bases all over the world, and is constantly at war.

But there’s no doubt that this state of affairs cannot continue. In fact, even the high ranking officials in our government know that their empire is on the ropes, and challenged on all fronts by nations that are no longer willing to bow down to Washington.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind the authors of this report that doing something in precisely the same way, again and again, yet expecting a different outcome, is a classic definition of insanity.

The Worst Ideological Enemy Of The US Is Now Europe

The vast majority of these European courts -- whether the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) or the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) -- in their attempt to be moral and just, have dismissed the sovereign laws of Italy as irrelevant, and trampled the rights of the Italian state and ordinary Italians to approve who enters their country.
In Europe, Amnesty International and the like are, it seems, a new source of law.
Those who gave the Statue of Liberty to America in 1886 "to commemorate the perseverance of freedom and democracy in the United States" are willingly trampling their own people's liberties today through courts of appointed, unelected, unaccountable ideologues. The danger is that, with the help of many doubtless well-intentioned, international NGOs, the EU will not stop at its shores.

Sad; but very essentially, quite true.

Turkey Poised To Invade Syria's Idlib Province As Inter-Jihadist Violence Rages

Two Salafi-jihadi factions in Syria's Idlib province have been engaged in a brutal inter-"rebel" (or rather inter-jihadist) war this week, prompting Turkey to prepare a potential invasion to protect its favored factions on the ground. On Thursday, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS/Al-Qaeda) continued to capture towns in Idlib's countryside from rival Ahrar al-Sham and Turkish backed FSA groups after an uneasy truce between the rebel factions quickly collapsed days prior, causing the weaker Ahrar al-Sham to call in Turkish support.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The tragedy which has been Syria the last half-decade, appears to show no signs of ending any time soon; hopefully, the Russians will hold sway here, and influence Turkey away from even the concept of this invasion.

"Everything Will Collapse" German Judge Warns As Refugees Flood System With Appeals

Hundreds of thousands of migrants who’ve appealed decisions by Germany’s immigration courts have brought the country’s legal system to the brink of collapse, a German judge warned on Friday.

More than 1.3 million migrants have arrived in Germany since the beginning of 2015. Since then, the sheer number of cases filed has overwhelmed the civil courts of the country, said Robert Seegmuller, chairman of the Association of German Administrative Law Judges, speaking to the publishing house Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland.

“The situation is dramatic for administrative courts,” Seegmuller told RND. “We are now completely stretched to our limits.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the end result of unrestricted, unvetted immigration; clogged legal systems breaking down; crime going up; areas of various countries (like Sweden, France, and Germany) becoming no-go zones for their citizens; and the people immigrating feel no need to learn the language, or culture, or necessary business skills in order to survive.

US Urges All Nationals In North Korea To "Depart Immediately", Bans Tourists From Visiting

Dennis Rodman will be disappointed to learn that the US is set to ban all citizens from traveling to North Korea, according to two agencies that operate tours there. Koryo Tours and Young Pioneer Tours said the ban would be announced on 27 July to come into effect 30 days later, the BBC reported. "After the 30-day grace period any US national that travels to North Korea will have their passport invalidated by their government." The ban comes one month after US student Otto Warmbier died following his imprisonment by the Kim regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When one has no relations with an allegedly "hostile" country (which the US does not with North Korea), this move looks like a prelude to military action against it.

Although South Korean President Moon's latest request to meet Kim Jung Un has been rebuffed, the South Korean government made it very clear that they don't think it was the North Korean government's position that talks could never happen, ultimately; just that a meeting for today would have been too rushed to be of positive benefit.

New Hawaii campaign to help residents plan for North Korea attack

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency is kicking off an educational campaign aimed at helping residents and visitors figure out what to do if the state is the target of a nuclear missile attack from North Korea.

The agency said the threat to the islands from the rogue nation is "currently assessed to be low."

But officials added ongoing North Korean missile tests —and growing public concern — have prompted officials to work on preparedness and disaster management plans.

Vern Miyagi, administrator of the emergency management agency, stressed that the public shouldn't be alarmed by the planning.

Rather, he said, the public should see the preparation and education much like the work being done to prepare the public for hurricane and tsunami, which pose a greater risk to the state.

"We need to tell the public what the state is doing," Miyagi said. “We do not want to cause any undue stress for the public; however, we have a responsibility to plan for all hazards."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the State of Hawaii handles a potential missile attack as "well" as it has handled the absolute fluster-cluck of its light rail program, then citizens of the State of Hawaii are truly on their own.

Get educated as to how to prepare yourself for such an event as much as possible; this means long-term storage food and water; extra medications for yourselves and your pets. Have a bugout plan, if you are separated from the family, and understand, tactically, where it will be the safest for you to ride out the attack in relative comfort.

Understand what potassium iodate is, and how to find it before such an emergency may take place.

If you have kids in school, learn what the policy is regarding the school's releasing them before the actual end of class time.

Because you absolutely, completely cannot rely on the State of Hawaii to take care of you in any meaningful way; it is too dysfunctional to be even the least bit effective in the case of such an attack by North Korea (or, potentially China).

Sean Hannity No Longer Receiving William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence

Sean Hannity is getting attacked from all sides.

Rumors continue to swirl that Hannity’s days at Fox News are numbered. His coverage of the Seth Rich murder is turning off advertisers.

Now, Hannity is being deprived of a prestigious award for his news commentary.

The Fox News host was set to receive the William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence, but the award has been rescinded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is this kind of heavy-handed behavior which signals that Seth Rich's death was NOT a "botched robbery!"

Dramatic Increase in Israel’s Arrest of Palestinian Children, Abused, Deprived of Food, Beatings, Denied Legal Council

Some 331 Palestinian minors were arrested by Israel between January and May this year, a 62 per cent increase on figures from 2012 to 2015, NGO Defence for Children International – Palestine (DCIP) revealed yesterday.

According to a report released by the human rights group, Israeli forces regularly abuse Palestinian children, depriving them of food, subjecting them to beatings and preventing them from accessing legal counsel.

Accountability Programme Director at DCIP, Ayed Abu Eqtaish, stated:

“For over a decade, ill-treatment of Palestinian children in the Israeli military detention system has been widespread and systematic.”

From the persistent and institutionalised ill-treatment and torture of Palestinian children, to the systematic denial of their due process rights, emerges a system of control far removed from justice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel, the "only democracy in the Middle East"?!?

Not from the standpoint of these kids and their families, it isn't!

Geopolitical Turbulence in the Caucasus

To put it very simply, after Syria the Caucasus – barely 800 miles to the northeast – is literally Russia’s second line of defense, its “soft underbelly,” to use a worn but apposite phrase. Quite understandably, Russia is in Syria, among other reasons, precisely to make sure that it would not have to fall back to the aforementioned defense line. Its geopolitical opponents, however, are doing their utmost to see to it that it does. Hence the intense turbulence and maneuvering between Baku and Tbilisi, and beyond.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A new US military base, right on Russia's border in Georgia?!? And ready for occupation and activity by the end of this year?!?

This gives me a sense of what a timeline might be for a NATO-led war with Russia; let's say, maybe 5 months out, give or take, from today?!?

The accompanying buildup of NATO'S troops right on Russia's doorstep is no accident, either.

Map showing where NATO troops are stationed right on Russia's borders

Suddenly, I am very much seeing the moves on this chessboard, potentially leading to another world war.

The Crisis of Trust in Government and Globalisation

The consequence to such an environment of suspicion is that people’s concerns over globalisation, the pace of innovation, employment prospects, immigration and eroding social values are turned into fear. And fear-factor politics has become endemic. The consequence is evidenced in the rise of political figures such as Donald Trump, the rise of extreme political parties across Europe, the collapse of establishment politics in France, the failure of the Italian referendum, Britain’s unexpected EU referendum result and then the Theresa May election debacle. All these events are inextricably linked because they were all decisions that were fundamentally driven by a lack of trust.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a natural consequence of being lied to so frequently by one's government, one simply expects that everything the government and corporate media tell you is a lie; at least, in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America, that is the truth.

Ray McGovern’s Day in Court

Ray will be in Court Wednesday and Thursday in Syracuse to face the music. He and his Catholic Worker, Jewish mother, and other friends twice blocked the main entrance and exit to Hancock drone base to call attention to the push-of-the-computer-button cowardly killings done in our name. Those of you who, like our Quaker friends, are in the practice of holding Justice people in the Light, please do.

Here is a link to a piece Ray wrote a few years ago on the moral imperative of activism; even more necessary now.

Pasted in below are a couple of links. Ray is grateful to have fallen in with the very best people to be in trouble with, witnessing at Hancock Drone Base, Syracuse, New York

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I met this man in New York when he was a featured speaker at a conference where Mike was also present to present evidence on 9/11; he is a gentleman of great moral courage, and someone I respect for his peaceful protests against things like the drone bases.

Extrajudicial assassinations have absolutely no place in American law, nor should they, although President Obama loved to order these.

What they appear to ultimately accomplish is create more radicalisation in the countries where they are used, which translates to a permanent state of warfare, which always makes the US's military industrial complex happy.

This is the most current commentary I could find on the Mc Govern trial, and it is dated just one week ago:

Our Relationship with Saudi Arabia Is an Embarrassment

When he was 17, five years ago, Mujtaba al-Sweikat committed the “crime” of participating in a pro-democracy rally in Saudi Arabia.

Instead of attending Western Michigan University, as he had planned to do that fall, he was put in prison. Reports are now leaking out of Saudi Arabia that al-Sweikat will soon be beheaded for his transgression.

It’s just the latest reminder that Saudi Arabia is America’s worst best friend. The U.S. does get something out of its relationship with Saudi Arabia; there is real intelligence sharing, and the Kingdom has used its power over OPEC to drive oil prices down when we want to humiliate Russia or accomplish some other goal. That’s not nothing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a citizen of a country colluding with Saudi Arabia in its commission of war crimes in Yemen, I am deeply troubled by the US's (and the President's) BFF relationship to the Saudi monarchy, and the Saudi government.

And I will warn you: all these images are very graphic, but as a Christian witness to the evil being visited upon Yemen by Saudi Arabia, I think it is very important for the readers of this site to understand what is being done with their tax dollars, and in their name, in Yemen.

The Saudi bombings are killing and maiming Yemeni children for life.

Images: Yemeni children killed and maimed for life.

By blockading the Yemeni ports with US military assistance, the Saudis are insuring the Yemeni children are now dying from malnutrition.

Images: Yemeni children dying from complications of malnutrition

And when you have a starved, bomb-ravaged population, is you do now in Yemen, disease is sure to follow; cholera is now well-established in Yemen, and the diagnosed cases are right around 300,00 as I type this.

Cholera cases in Yemen pass the 300,000 mark, and climbing.

Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman did pledge 66 million dollars to deal with the cholera epidemic, to appear "humanitarian", even as his government slaughters Yemen's people with bombs and bullets.

Saudis, at War in Yemen, Give Country $66.7 Million in Cholera Relief

But did he actually give it to an aid organisation which actually understand how to get the job done, like the Red Crescent, or Doctors Without Borders?!?

With an intense cynicism that almost boggles the mind, Prince Salman donated this money to the UN, which is dysfunctional, dystopic, and disorganised beyond belief. He clearly understood that by the time that aid ever reached its target, the relief effort would be way too little, and way too late.

Oh, and did I mention that the Saudis are using DU weapons in Yemen?!?

Images: Saudis using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen

And of course, these weapons are having the absolutely same effect on the people and children in Yemen as they did in Falluja Iraq; massive spikes in cancers, birth defects, and still births are being experienced now by the Yemeni people.

Images, courtesy of Ruptly, of infants with severe birth defects, due to Saudi use of depleted uranium in Yemen.

It is profoundly disturbing for me to understand just how completely morally comfortable our government, the Saudi government, and our and their military are with this genocide in Yemen.

As both a Christian and an American citizen, I very logically must ask about the moral cost of this relationship between the US and Saudi Arabia, and the dark, bitter fruit it may well bear in the future, where the US government may use Saudi Arabia as a proxy antagonist to Iran, in a potential war against that country.

Is Iran in Our Gun Sights Now?

In 2007, all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies declared with high confidence Iran had no nuclear weapons program. They stated this again in 2011. Under the nuclear deal, Iran exported almost all of its uranium, stopped enriching to 20 percent, shut down thousands of centrifuges, poured concrete into the core of its heavy water reactor, and allows U.N. inspectors to crawl all over every facility.

Is Iran, despite all this, operating a secret nuclear weapons program? Or is this War Party propaganda meant to drag us into another Mideast war?

To ascertain the truth, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee should call the heads of the CIA and DIA, and the Director of National Intelligence, to testify in open session.

We are told we are menaced also by a Shiite Crescent rising and stretching from Beirut to Damascus, Baghdad and Tehran.

And who created this Shiite Crescent?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, just because the creation of yet another war in the Middle East would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the Unhinged Surveilled States of America could do right now, is absolutely no guarantee that it won't haul off, and do it.

Logic, rationality, and being able to think something through to its logical conclusion, are no longer requisite skills for those creating foreign policy in DC; what we seem to have happening here is a combination of "magical thinking, coupled with the used of a dart board, in the creation of US foreign policy.

Israeli General: We Won’t Let Iran Win the Syrian War - Ceasefire Sees Israel Escalating Threats Against Iran

Israel has made no secret of not liking the southern Syria ceasefire, negotiated between the US and Russia, complaining in particular that it doesn’t keep the Syrian government, and its Iranian allies, totally barred from that part of the country, which they see as tantamount to letting Iran be too close to the Israeli border.

Israeli Maj. Gen. Yaakov Amidror is the latest to step up the ever-growing series of threats against Iran over the matter, attending a briefing with foreign correspondents today and warning that if the US and Russia don’t resolve Israel’s complaints, the Israeli military will “intervene and destroy every attempt to build infrastructure in Syria.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli Maj. Gen. Yaakov Amidror, a word please; have you gone absolutely barking dog mad, to have made that statement?!?

First, are you really so smug and secure that you would go head to head, militarily, in a foreign country, up against the Russians, who will simply not allow this madness?!?

And did you NOT get the memo that China is going to have a significant role to play in the rebuilding of Syria's infrastructure?!?

Why China wants in on Syria's Reconstruction

Is Israel really ready... to go to war against China, Russia, and Iran, to prevent infrastructure from getting rebuilt in Syria?!?

I sense, sir, that you have really not thought this through to its logical conclusion.

Fighting Words: Pyongyang Blasts Seoul’s ‘Nonsense’ Invitation to Talks

Just three days after South Korea proposed holding inter-Korean military talks with its northern neighbor, Pyongyang’s most notable publication slammed the efforts as "nonsense."

According to the Rodong Sinmun, if Seoul wants to have any chance at keeping the peace, it needs to fully abandon its confrontational policies and say goodbye to its decades-long dependence on the United States.
"Ditching confrontation and hostility is a precondition for opening the door for the two Koreas’ reconciliation and unity," stated the Hermit Kingdom’s top newspaper.

Talks were proposed after recently elected South Korean President Moon Jae-in announced in Berlin that he wanted to hit the reset button and bring about a calmer relationship between the divided Koreas.

"We do not wish for the collapse of North Korea," Moon told reporters at the G20 Summit. "We will not pursue any form of unification by absorbing the other. We will not pursue a unification by force."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I seriously doubt that North Korea is going to change its stance, until it actually has a workable, steerable nuclear weapon as a deterrent against "regime change" against their country.

At that point (if the US government and military actually allow its program to continue toward a successful conclusion), it may be ready for talks, but most probably not until then.

US ‘global strike’ concept a direct threat, nuclear arms are good deterrent – Russian naval doctrine

The quest for global domination in the world’s oceans, as well as the global strike concept of the US and its allies, puts international stability at risk and poses a direct military threat to Russia, the country’s new naval doctrine states.
Moscow’s demonstration that it is prepared to use force, including non-strategic nuclear weaponry, is an efficient way to deter this threat, the document says.

One of the main challenges faced by Russia is the “strive of a number of states, mainly the US and its allies, for domination in the World Ocean, including the Arctic region, as well as for establishing overwhelming superiority of their naval forces,” according to “the state policy of the Russian Federation in the field of naval activities for the period up to 2030,” as ratified by a Decree of the President of Russia on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, the Russian military understand, quite perfectly, the US government's aim at world domination, and take that threat very seriously.

I had sincerely hoped that a Trump presidency would de-escalate some of the major geopolitical conflicts facing this world; I was dead wrong here.

The only positive thing I can do now is encourage people to be "7 day awareists", stock up; prep; and make sure you have a plan if the excrement hits the ventilation fan.

Will the Federal Government Make It Illegal to Protest Israel?

A growing number of Republicans and Democrats in Congress are backing a bill that would criminalize support for the international boycott against Israel, also known as the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.

Named the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, the bill so far has garnered support from 29 Republicans and 14 Democrats in the Senate. A similar piece of legislation introduced in the House of Representatives has 237 co-sponsors—63 Democrats and 174 Republicans. With the intent to suppress the BDS movement and others allied with the boycott against Israel, the Israel Anti-Boycott Act imposes harsh punishments: any person guilty of violating the law faces a “minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When telling the truth about Israel's treatment of the Palestinians, and why the BDS movement is critical to stopping that behaviour, because it is the only language the Israeli government understands, because it is economic in nature, the Unhinged Surveilled States of America will have truly fallen off its very own 1984 cliff.

Should this draconian law be passed, I will not mention this movement; but I will, however, take great pains to logically and peacefully continue to document the horrors the Palestinian people continually suffer at the hands of their Israeli occupiers.

Launch Live PlayerTHE CLINTONSFBI turns over 7,000 documents from Weiner laptop in Clinton-tied case

The FBI has turned over 7,000 new documents from Anthony Weiner’s private laptop to the State Department as part of a watchdog group's lawsuit related to last year's Hillary Clinton email case.

Judicial Watch and State Department representatives appeared in federal court in Washington, D.C., on Thursday over the group's Freedom of Information Act suit seeking Clinton emails from her tenure at the State Department.

It emerged during the hearing that the 7,000 new documents were turned over. The trove is expected to contain some emails sent by Weiner’s estranged wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

In this Sept. 20, 2011 file photo, Huma Abedin, top, deputy chief of staff and aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, right, during a meeting with leaders for the Open Government Partnership in New York.Expand / Collapse

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This effectively puts Hillary Clinton out of a run for President in 2020, but she is working to establish control of the Democratic Party to insure that a Clintonista gets "anointed" as the Democrat's candidate, to attempt to keep a lid on the bigger scandals in which she is involved.

Bernie Sanders, if he has one shred of decency left in him, needs to fight against this, so the the Democrat's choice will be an authentic one in 2020; not the kind of campaign which saw the life squeezed out of it, thorough corruption, as was his Presidential campaign in 2016.

IDAHO EMBRACES NEOFEUDALISM WITH ITS “NONCOMPETE” LEGISLATION

Many of you may not be familiar with what I’m talking about, so I’ll start with some excerpts from a very good New York Times article on the subject, and then get into some detailed commentary at the end.

Here’s a brief overview of the situation from the piece, Noncompete Pacts, Under Siege, Find Haven in Idaho:

BOISE, Idaho — Idaho achieved a notable distinction last year: It became one of the hardest places in America for someone to quit a job for a better one.

The state did this by making it easier for companies to enforce noncompete agreements, which prevent employees from leaving their company for a competitor.

“We’re trying to build the tech ecosystem in Boise,” said George Mulhern, chief executive of Cradlepoint, a company here that makes routers and other networking equipment. “And anything that would make somebody not want to move here or start a company here is going to slow down our progress.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a word with which to characterise this legislation, from a standpoint of worker's rights; that word is, "insane".

Were this to go all the way to the Supreme Court, my guess would be that the Court would rule against it.

TOP EUROPEAN COURT TO CONSIDER IF EU COUNTRIES CAN CENSOR THE GLOBAL INTERNET

Last month we wrote about the tragic and hugely problematic ruling in Canada that said a Canadian court could order global censorship of content it deems to be illegal.

If you accept that Canada can censor the global internet, what's to stop China, Iran or Russia from claiming the same rights?

Catherine Austin Fitts just published documentation of Department of Defense (DOD) official audit reports from 1998 that acknowledge “losing track” of $6.5 trillion, along with Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) admission of “losing” over $100 billion. This is euphemistically termed “unaccounted,” and literally means that DOD agrees they received these funds, agrees the funds are gone, and then claims to not have records of where the money went.

CAMEROONIAN TROOPS TORTURED AND KILLED PRISONERS AT BASE USED FOR U.S. DRONE SURVEILLANCE

Troops in the West African nation of Cameroon have tortured prisoners at a remote military base that is also used by U.S. personnel and private contractors for drone surveillance and training missions.

As the U.S. military has fortified the Cameroonian site, known as Salak, and supported the elite local troops based there, the outpost has become the scene of illegal imprisonment, brutal torture, and even killings, according to a new investigation by The Intercept and the Goldsmiths, University of London-based research firm Forensic Architecture, based on extensive research by Amnesty International. Nearly 60 victims held at Salak described to Amnesty International how they were subjected to water torture, beaten with electric cables and boards, or tied and suspended with ropes, among other abuses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US military absolutely cannot tolerate the practice of torture anywhere it functions on this planet, period, end of discussion.

When the US either tortures, or outsources, or ignores torture where it operates, the following happens; people around the world rightly understand that Americans have utterly no concern regarding human rights or human dignity, when it comes to prisoners of war; they don't care that the information is not actionable, and is simply stated to get the torture to stop; and it gives carte blanche to anyone around the world to torture American military and civilian personnel.

Back during World War II, there was an interrogator, Hanns Scharff, who only used kindness as his MO. Because of his effectiveness, humanitarianism, and his gentleness, he was so respected by the US that he was brought over to the US to lecture to the American military about interrogation.

I sincerely wish that the US military would consistently abide by this man's code of ethics; but then again, he was a truly civilised human being, for whom the ends did not justify the means.

Chinese Army Mobilizes Military Assets to Tibet Following Live Fire Drills

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) mobilized thousands of ground vehicles and other military equipment as the standoff between Chinese and Indian troops near the disputed area of Sikkim continues, according to a report from the PLA Daily.
PLA Daily is widely considered the main outlet the Chinese army uses for external communications, LiveMint notes.

The report did not specify the exact date the military assets were relocated to Tibet but said it occurred at the end of June. The unspecified military "hardware" was transported via rail and conventional roads.

It’s not entirely clear where in Tibet the chess pieces have been placed. The report also failed to indicate whether the military equipment would be used in tandem with a Chinese battalion that recently completed drills in Tibet, China’s second-largest province.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could get very dicey very quickly.

And the fact that the US and Indian governments enhanced their military ties last year India and U.S. deepen defense ties with landmark agreementcould translate as a possible US military intervention, on the side of India, against China in this skirmish over Sikkim.

INTEL REPORTS REVEAL AT LEAST 40,000 CIVILIANS KILLED IN MOSUL IN JUST 9 MONTHS

According to Hoshyar Zebari, who until recently was a senior minister in Baghdad, many bodies “are still buried under the rubble.”

“Kurdish intelligence believes that over 40,000 civilians have been killed as a result of massive firepower used against them, especially by the federal police, air strikes and Isis itself,” Mr. Zebari added.

The monitoring group Airwars recently estimated that at least 4,000 civilians were still buried under the rubble in Mosul, but we will likely never know the exact number. Up until a month ago, the U.S. only had two personnel investigating casualties in Iraq and Syria full time.

Zebari also emphasized that the “unrelenting artillery bombardment by units of the Iraqi federal police, in practice a heavily armed military unit, had caused immense destruction and loss of life in west Mosul,” according to the Independent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a sneaking suspicion that by the time all the deaths are truly tallied in Mosul, this 40,000 figure may well be expanded by double the number reported here.

The New York Times’ Tim Arango took what could have been an interesting topic for war journalism—Iran’s increased role in Iraq—and morphed it into a revisionist history of American and Saudi involvement in the Middle East. In doing so, Arango paints the U.S. as a noble, freedom-loving nation on a mission to improve the lives of average Iraqis, and Iran as a sinister imperial force working to expand its sphere of influence across the region.

HUGE! Solar Power Generates 300x More Toxic Waste Than Nuclear (Video)

I’m going to go out on a limb, and suggest that if I was brave enough to tell a room full of rabid liberals and academics several weeks ago that solar power was more dangerous to the environment than coal or nuclear power combined, it would have been a safe bet that I’d have been ridiculed, personally attacked, or perhaps worse by room of said rabid liberals.

I probably would have heard things like, “Duh, everyone knows that “97% of climate scientists agree that climate change cannot be denied,” and everyone also knows solar power is better for the environment than coal, or nuclear energy, etc. Duh! That’s soooo “settled science.”

FALSEHOOD IN WAR-TIME: Propaganda Lies of the First World War by Arthur Ponsonby MP, 1928

"The use of the weapon of falsehood is more necessary in a country where military conscription is not the law of the land than in countries where the manhood of the nation is automatically drafted into the Army, Navy, or Air Service. The public can be worked up emotionally by sham ideals. A sort of collective hysteria spreads and rises until finally it gets the better of sober people and reputable newspapers".

FLASHBACK - TRUMP'S VINCE FOSTER ATTACK BACKED BY NEW EVIDENCE

As Donald Trump revives the two-decade old Vince Foster case, the charge that the cause of death of the top aide and close friend of the Clintons may not have been suicide has once again been dismissed as the stuff of “right-wing conspiracy theory.”

But less than three months ago, WND reported a resignation letter surfaced from the lead investigator in independent counsel Robert Fiske’s investigation of the Foster case, Miquel Rodriguez, outlining evidence of his charge that the case was fixed.

Thirteen years ago, WND reported Rodriguez, an assistant U.S. attorney, made an audio recording in which he charged the suicide ruling was predetermined, the crime scene was altered and major newspaper editors killed stories by reporters pursuing the truth.

“This whole notion of [Fiske and Starr] doing an honest investigation is laughable,” Rodriguez says in the tape.
